The Academic Freedom Week
Committee is formed of a group
of interested students and organi-

GM Buys Willow Run
Plant for $26,000,000
DETROIT -P03)- General Mo-
tors yesterday bought from Kai-
ser Motors the giant former bomb-
er plant at Willow Run, near De-
troit at a price of 26 million dol-
Kaiser will move all its opera-
tions to Toledo and the Willys-
Overland plant there. Kaiser
bought Willys - Overland earlier
* * *
UNTIL THE MOVE to Toledo
can be completed, General Motors
will lease to Kaiser the space now
occupied by Kaiser Motors for a
period not to exceed 12 months.
General Motors had been leas-
ing 11% million square feet of
the Willow Run plant since Au-
gust for the production of Hy-
dra-Matic transmissions. Trans-
mission output was halted when
fire destroyed the GM transmis-
sion division plant at Livonia
Kaiser paid an estimated 15 mil-
lions when it bought the big bomb-
er plant from the government in
Loss to General Motors in the
Livonia fire has been estimated
at as high as 80 millions.
APPROXIMATELY 7,000 Gen-
eral Motors workers now are em-
ployed at Willow Run. When GM
reaches full-scale output of trans-
missions there it is expected all
the 8,000 workers idled by the Li-
vonia fire will have been recalled.
The sprawling Willow Run
property has some 62 acres un-
der roof. General Motors' pur-
chase of the plant marks the
second time it has changed
hands since the government
built it during World War II.
Its cost at that time has been
variously estimated at from 60 to
90 million dollars.
Willow Run was operated dur-
ing the war by Ford Motor Co.
Ford turned out more than 8,500 of
the big four-engined Liberator
When the bomber job was com-
pleted Henry Ford was offered first
opportunity to bid on the proper-
ty. He said, however, that he had
no use for it.

Elizabeth' Stage Set
For Opening Thursday
Set construction for "Elizabeth
the Queen" has just been complet-
ed in a "two-days-before-opening"
burst of energy.
The stage crew has had a diffi-
cult job with $his play because of
unusual technical and time diffi-
culties. After work on "The Heir-
ess" was completed there remain-
ed barely two weeks to produce the
sets needed for "Elizabeth," a play
which requires extensive scene
Jack Bender, in charge of
stage design, says that "Eliza-
beth the Queen" offers a won-
derful challenge. Because of the
dramatic effect, scenes must be
changed rapidly and smoothly.
A revolving stage was, isedin
the 1930 Theatre Guild Pro-
duction, but unfortunately the
speech department does not
have such professional facilities.
In this present production an
effort has been made to preserve
the changing atmosphere of the
play and yet compensate for tech-
nical deficiencies. Bender has
solved the problem by using a
unit set in which various parts
are shifted into position.
Even the monotony that might
result from constant use of the
same scenery has been eliminated
by using draperies to give the au-
dience the impression that the
stage crew is actually practicing
black magic, according to Bender.
