J' CENTENNIAL:

Engineering Film Opens Tomorrow
The premiere showings of "The
frst Hundred," a color motion,-{
cture commemorating the cen-
.nnial anniversary of the engi-
Bering college, will be held at 7,
and 9 p.m. tomorrow in Angell
all Auditorium A.
An engineering student in the>
ass of 1854, who has overslept 100
ears is the leading character of
le movie. The role of Phineas
7ilbur Jones, the Rip Van Winkle
udent, is played by Jim Stephen-
n, Grad.

Fralick Says Nearsightedness
Result of Heredity, Not Strain

Nearsightedness, in most cases,
is not a result of much close work
or poor lighting, but a result of
heredity.
This is now a well established
fact among those who study and
care for vision. Dr. Francis B. Fra-
lick of the medical school pointed
out nearsightedness and far-
sightedness result, in part, from
heredity.
All A .Records
lHade by 126
All A records were achieved by
126 students in nine of the Univer-
sity's schools and colleges during
the fall semester.
A breakdown of the total num-
ber of students shows that the
College of Literature, Science and
the Arts had 90; College of Engi-
neering, 12; School of Education,
seven; School of Architecture and
Design, five; School of Music, five;
School of Natural Resources, two;
College of Pharmacy, two; School
of Public Health, two, and School
of Nursing, one.

"USING EYES does not cause
nearsightedness," Dr. Fralick said,
"for if it did, then all students and
faculty members would be near-
sighted."
He explained that students'
and faculty's eyes are afflicted
with nothing more than fatigue.
Nearsightedness used to be
blamed on close work and poor
lighting, but it was found to ex-
ist among farmers who do a min-
imum amount of close work and
among primitive tribes where peo-
ple do no reading at all.
Studies were made and it was
concluded that all pronounced
forms of nearsightedness are
hereditary.
Astigmatism occurring to a
marked degree was also found to
be inherited, but almost everyone
has some astigmatism. Astigma-
tism may be explained in the fol-
lowing way: The outside cover-
ing of the eye, the cornea, should
have a curvature like a tennis ball.
When astigmatism occurs, the
shape of the cornea is more like
that of a football.

Play Bill

start its observance of Interna-
tional Theater Month when it
stages its Third Laboratory Bill

Buck, '54BAd., and Vincent Dam-
brauskas, '55E, have been nomi-
nated as candidates for the com-
mission of second lieutenant in

ced yesterday.
Both students hold the rank of
Cadet Captain in the ROTC and
have achieved a high academic
record in ROTC courses.

ular Army commission is subject

BEGINS IFC PROGRAM:
House Stewards To Meet

Initiating a program of steward
education t h e Interfraternity
Council is holding its first meeting
of house stewards at 7:30 p.m. to-
day in the Union.
The program was established by
fraternity presidents at their
March 2 meeting to bring stewards
from the 44 houses together for
discussion of mutual problems and
hear experts- on food buying and
preparation.
REPRESENTATIVES will be
elected from the stewards for each
of the five fraternity districts on
campus. They will form a steward
guidance council and work with
the IFC and the houses in their
district to implement the program.
The steward program is an
outgrowthaofstudies by the IF
and individual house stewards
on the food buying problem.
Instances of short weighing and
set prices on certain commodities
regardless of the amount in which
they are bought have been cited
by a number of houses.
Under the new program, ideas
for effecting economies in their

kitchens and for taking advantage
of quantity buying will be discus-
sed.
The program has been set up
under the IFC Co-ordinating
Committee headed by Dave
Smerling, '55.
According to John Baity, '55,
IFC executive vice-president, es-
tablishment of the steward train-
ing program is a step in the di-
rection of a future program of
cooperative buying.
Accountants Group
Officers of the National Asso-
ciation of Cost Accountants will
visit Ann Arbor today to present a
charter to a local chapter of the
association.
Prof. William J. Schlatter of the
School of Business Administration,
has been nominated for a posi-
tion on the board of directors of
the newly-formed local chapter.

Nancy Born, '53, takes the fe-
ale lead, that of a girl re-
orter who writes up Jones' ex-
erience for The Daily.

Visual Education Center, the

rierce in the world of 1954,
d his eventual decision to re-
roll in the engineering college.
En the film the work of six en-
eering college professors is ex-
