HAINES STARTED his collec-
tion as a boy with an accumula-
tion of original lead soldiers. From
this beginning, he made molds and
began to manufacture his own
copies, dressing them in authentic
costume. Colonel Charles Wiegand,
head of the University ROTC unit,
said that many are designed from
photographs and are exact repli-
In addition to building up his
collection, Haines devised a
"game of war which covered
his entire basement. He kept
careful records of battles and
simulated the maneuvers of both
present and past armies.
Among the most interesting
items in the collection are modern
reproductions of the soldiers of
Afghanistan and Abyssinia. Col.
Wiegand's favorites are the sol-
diers representing the French dur-
ing the Seven Year's War.
The soldiers will be used for ex-
hibition. They also provide a
means of demonstrating combat
formations in the classroom.
The Union student offices have
made arrangements for 80 stud-
ents to journey into Detroit Fri-
day to see the hit Broadway play,
"Death of a Salesman."
,The price of this first theatre
excursion 'of the year will be $3.90
including bus transportation and
reserved tickets, with the buses
leaving the Union for Detroit at
6:45 .p.m. Friday.
Reservations may be made be-
tween 3 and 5 p.m. in the Union
lobby or by calling Ron Kaminsky,

DEAN OF WOMEN Deborah
Bacon pointed out that "what
Ann Arbor needs is a little thea-
tre to bring in good foreign films."
"A theatre with a seating capa-
city of about 500 people would be
ideal." she suggested. "Something
about the size of Lydia Mendels-
sohn would provide a constant
audience for good films of which
there is a remarkable dearth in
Ann Arbor," Dean Bacon added.
Both the Cinema Guild and
the Gothic Film Society are do-
ing an excellent ,job, she said.
There is a tremendous risk en-
volved, however, in scheduling
such films for Hill Auditorium,

"We must be careful though to
avoid treading on the toes of local

"Although it is impossible at
the moment to send rocket ships
to the moon, with hard work and
money that day may not be far
off," Stanley P. Wyatt of the as-
tronomy department declared.
"A ONE-WAY trip to the moon
is within the resources of present
day engineering, but before it will
be possible for people to make the
trip new inventions will have to
be devised,"he added.
Wyatt described what such a
trip would be like.
"It would be convenient to make
the trip during spring vacation,
for it would take four' days to get
to the moon," he said. The best
place to leave from would be a
mountain top on the equator, be-
cause the earth rotates fastest at
the equator, and by taking off
from a mountain top much of

yesterday the AP average showed
that 49.6 per cent of that gain
had been wiped out.
PROFESSOR Douglas A. Hayes,
of the School of Business Admin-
istration commented that the de-
cline is a result of two factors:
a normal reaction from the mid-
October high point and the bad
earnings reports being published
by most companies for their third
quarter and nine months periods.
News of the slim Tory victory
in England failed to produce a
bouyant effect on the market
which declined Friday, the day
election results were posted.
Bethleham Steel and General
Motors had very poor third quar-
ter reports with GM profits cut in
.half for this period as compared
with last year. However, oil stocks
reporting much improved earnings
were not exempt from the decline.
