Mail Service Does Big Job

If; the simple act of mailing a
letter gives you trouble, consider
for a minute the job of the Uni-
versity's Mail Service which has
to deal with more than 10,000
pieces of mail in a single day.
Located in a corner of the Ad-
ministration Bldg. basement, the
mail service'keeps four men and
two postage meters busy taking
care of all inter-university mail,
stamping, sealing and s ding of-
ficial mail and delivering incom-
ing mail and freight.
* * *
EVERY morning beginning at
eight, mail from all University of-
fices is collected and brought to
the main sorting room where Uni-
versity mail is separated from the
rest. Mail to be sent out is put
through one of two $900 postage
meters where it is stamped and
Inter-University and inter-
quad mail, both of which are'
sent postage free, are taken to
another room and sorted for
the _next delivery.
According to Jack Mortensen,
supervisor of the mail service, the
job of actually sealing and sending
the mail is not as much trouble
as determining the proper postage
and, in some cases, the proper ad-
- In addition to unreadable ad-
dresses, there is often overseas
mail which is not marked properly
and' consequently is given the
wrong postage.]
Working with the supervisor'
and his assistant Douglas-Barnett,
are two part time workers, Loren
Schmid, '53, and Jim Atterway,

SPA Plans
A li-Campus
Plans for an all-campus Peace
Conference to be held toward the
end of the semester were discussed
at a meeting of the Society for
Peaceful Alternatives last night.
The conference will include fac-
ulty members representatives of
prominent student groups and pos-
sibly some outside speakers.
The six members present also
discussed methods of increasing
attendance at future meetings,
and suggested replacements for
faculty advisor Prof. Frank L.
Huntly of the English dept., who
resigned because he is leaving for
Europe at the end of the semester.
Acting chairman Ed Voss, Grad,
attributed the lack of attendance
to poor publicity. Voss, who was
vice-chairman last semester will
hold his present position until
elections can be held to re-
place Berkely Eddins, '53, who re-
signed from the organization.

Mature Health Attitude Means
Community Spirit-Overstreet

. The mature approach to public
health means learning to become
community minded, famed author
and educator H. A. Overstreet told
an audience of public health stu-
dents and teachers yesterday.
Overstreet, scheduled to lecture
on "The Matuhe Mind," his best
selling book on personal philoso-
phy, discussed several psychologi-
cal pointers on how to be success-
ful in the field of public health.
FIRST, he said, is the "rule of
empathy." He defined empathy as
the power to put oneself "inside"
another person or situation and to
feel as the other person feels.

sis of a merit syytem which took

Union Opera Call
A meeting for all those interest-
ed in working on the promotions
committee of the Union Opera will
be held at 4 p.m. today in the
Union Opera office on the third
floor of the Union.

"The apporach to community
well being is to be interested in
other people's interest," he said,
adding that public health per-
sonnel should move "from ego-
centricity to sociocentricity."
Second is the "rule of co-spon-
sorship." He said that it is far
better when a person does not in-
sist on "doing his work by him-
self," and warned the audience
not to consider themselves the
sole spokesmen for public health
leadership, but to join with other
community organizations in work-
ing toward their goal.
Overstreet cited the "rule of
capturing attention," or effective-
ly publicizing the functions of the
public health workers.
"Any public health person has
to learn how to meet the public,
and this is a field that must be
psychologically alert if it is to get
the best results," he concluded.

JACKSON, Mich. - (P) - The
first of 13 convicts accused of kid-
naping Southern Michigan Prison!
guards during the April mutiny at
the "Big House" wentrto trial yes-
And from all appearances the
trial will be a short one.
RAY YOUNG, 21, already serv-
ing five to 15 years from Detroit
for safecracking, was called be-
fore Circuit Judge John Simpson
and an all-woman jury. He was
bare-foot when he was led into
the courtroom.
Prosecutor George Campbell
announced unexpectedly yester-
day afternoon that the state
had completed its case.
This brought a demand from
defense attorney Clayton Biggs
that Campbell produce nine wit-
nesses he had subpenaed but fail-
ed to call to the stand.

First Alleged Jackson Prison
Guard Kidnaper Begins Trial

The prosecutor complied but
asked the nine no questions. Biggs
brought admissions from them
that they had no direct way of
connecting Young with the kid-
naping of guards.
CAMPBELL then said he might
call one witness today. Biggs indi-
cated that he may call no wit-
nesses or put Young on the stand.
Before the prosecutor an-
nounced completion of his case,
however, he called several wit-
nesses who did link Young with
the guard-kidnaping.
One of his main witnesses was
Thomas Elliott, one of the guards
seized as hostages during the
four-day mutiny.
He said Young touched off the
rebellion by seizing him as he un-
locked a cell in cellblock 15,
threatening him with a butcher+
knife and locking him in the cell.

Service Group

fraternity, has a record pledge
class of over 40 men, according to

Wilk expressed no surprise that
Alpha Phi Omega had a larger
pledge class than any other cam-
pus fraternity. "Times are chang-
ing," he said, "and we are finding
that a lot more boys today are
service minded-no pun intended."
Explaining the purpose of the
fraternity, Wilk said, "We are
interested in being. of service to
students, faculty and commun-
ity. One of our best known ac-
tivities is helping out during
registration, but we do many
other useful things throughout.
the year."
Membership in the service or-
ganization is open to all men with
previous Boy Scout or Cub Scout
experience. Wilk emphasized that
this year's pledge class is by no
means closed, and suggested that

competent medical specialist and his staff on the
effects of smoking Chesterfield cigarettes.
A group of people from various walks of life
was organized to smoke only Chesterfields. For six
months this group of men and women smoked their
normal amount of Chesterfields -- 10 to 40 a day.
45 % of the group have smoked Chesterfields con-
tinually from one to thirty years for an average of
10 years each.
At the beginning and at the end of the six-
months period each smoker was given a thorough
