Students' Right
To Register
Not Assured
"Mere presence of a student at
an institutionof learning is not
enough to entitle him to vote
there," City Clerk J. Looker said
yesterday as he outlined registra-
tion procedures for the coming
Nov. 2 election.
Pointing to a letter from the
Michigan attorney-general, he said
that a student's legal residence de-
pends largely on the student's in-
tentions as to his future home. The
letter commented that a legal res-
idence may be acquired when a
student doesn't intend to return
home after graduation.
Other criteria used in determin-
ing legal residence includes wheth-
er a University student intends to
stay at school for a long time and
if he is uncertain about his future
residence. Still another issue of
importance is whether a student
regards the college town as his
home town and whether he has no
other home.
Usually, a college student has to
be self-supporting in addition to
satisfying the other criteria before
he is allowed to vote in Ann Arbor
city elections.
Looker said that registration for
the election can be made from 8
a.m. to 5 p.m. daily until Oct. 4,
when his office in the City Hall will
be open until 8 p.m.
He also reminded students reg-
istered in other Michigan cities to
mail absentee ballots before the
Oct. 30 deadline. These ballots may
be procured by mail from a stu-
dent's local city clerk.
'U' Representatives
To Attend Meeting
Among participants at the Upper
Peninsular Regional Meeting of the
Michigan Educational Association
tomorrow and Friday will be three
University representatives.
John V. Field, assistant profes-
sor in the journalism department,
will address a section meeting on
"Problems of High School Publi-
cations." Also scheduled to appear
are Charles Follo, supervisor of the
Upper Peninsula Extension Pro-
gram and Robert Leetsma, Audio-
Visual consultant.

Army Tickets
"You leave 'em, we'll sell
'em."saysMark Gallon, 5,
Michigan Union student serv-
ices committee chairman, about
Army footbal game tickets.
Tickets may be left for "guar-
anteed resale" at Union student
offices any day this week from
3 to 5 p.m., according to Gal-
lon. There is no service charge.
Persons wishing to purchase
game tickets may call at the
office during the above times.
No student tickets may be re-
Leaf Color
Change Told
By Botanist
"No matter how little sleep I've
had the night before," commented
a busy student, "I always enjoy
walking to classes these mornings
-the turning and falling leaves
against the vivid blue, sky are too
beautiful to ignore."
Other students, who wonder an-
nually about the whys and hows
of the perennial change in leaves,
may find their questions answer-
ed by Prof. Felix G. Gustafson of
the botany department.
In normal green leaves, accord-
ing to Prof. Gustafson, there are
at least three pigment substances:
green chlorophyll, yellow carotene
and xanthophyll-and sometimes
another yellow color, flavone.
Sunshine Changes Leaves
Easily destroyed by light, chlor-
ophyll substances in leaves are es-
pecially susceptible in the fall,
when the brilliant sunshine touch-
es them. Dormant yellow colors in
the leaves, present but unseen dur-
Ing the rest of the year, appear,
with a mottled effect attributed
to uneven destruction of chloro-
Red and purple colors result
from a substance called anthocy-
anin, according to Prof. Gustafson.
Brown leaves come from a partial
breakdown of different leaf sub-
Prof. Gustafson noted that re-
gions of the country where cold
weather comes suddenly are much
more likely to have brilliantly-col-
ored leaves than those where win-
ter comes gradually.
Cold Weather Favored
"Low temperature, with bright
sunshine, is favorable," he said,
"as such weather produces plant
conditions allowing the necessary
chemical changes to take place."
Particularly famed for their
colorful autumns are New Eng-
land, and the northern parts of
Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan
and southern Ontario.
Most conifers fail to show color
changes, according to Prof. Gus-
tafson, although red cedars occa-
sionally show red and brown in
winter months. Trees such as the
swamp and red maple, however,
may Become completely red.
Noting other color variations,
Prof. Gustafson pointed out that
the staghorn sumac assumes a
brilliant red shade, while poplars
and birches usually become yellow,
and ash trees are generally a
greenish-purple color.
Some trees, such as the catalpa
and mulberry, shed leaves while
they are still green.
Annual Adams
Talk Planned

By.his torian
Noted historian Julian P. Boyd
will deliver the third annual Ran-
dolph G. Adams Memorial Lecture
tomorrow at 8:30 p.m. at the Wil-
liam Clements Memorial Library.
Speaking on "An Aristocracy for
a Republic," Boyd, who is editor
of "The Papers of Thomas Jeffer-
son," has based his address on re-
cent studies of Jefferson's papers.
The lecture will be given for a spe-
cially-invited group of the library's
associates and friends.
A Princeton University history
professor, Boyd devotes the ma-
jority of his time to editing the Jef-
ferson papers, which are published
by the Princeton University Press.

Radar Needs
Radar isn't infallible.
Director of Washtenaw County
Civil Defense Thomas Fitzgerald
made this statement in reference
to the proposed United States-
Canadian "radar fence" across
sections of Canada.
Quoting from an Air Force Ma-
gazine article"Don't Count Your
Missiles Before They Are Hatch-
ed," Fitzgerald cited some of the
limitations of radar which have-
n't yet been perfected.
"Radar is ineffective if used
under 5,000 feet," he explained,
"and is subject to terrain condi-
tions and to jamming."
Urgency Sense Damaged
The article was printed,. Fitz-
gerald said, after many stories ap-
peared misrepresenting facts con-
cerning radar and guided missiles.
Its conclusion hit on the damage
being done to an important de-
fense area-"the American pub-
lic's sense of urgency"-by such
Fitzgerald continued to say
that civil defense, both in Wash-
tenaw County and in the country,
will not have good support until
it becomes a part of the national
defense system.
"For example," he said, "some
1,200 people were recently invited
to an important defense meeting.
51 showed up.
Apathy A Hazard
"The average citizen is not{
awar of the system," he added,
"and the apathy prevalent in this
country today was present in Eu-
ropean countries before World
War II."
Although Ann Arbor has eight
civil defense positions to watch,
Fitzgerald noted, only one of them,
the Union Tower, is manned for
any length of time, through the
Ground Observers' Corps, which
is connected with the Army Air
Force and not with Civil Defense.
M~ovie Theatre {
To Be Erected
W. S. Butterfield Theaters have
announced that they will build a
new movie house on the site of the
now vacant Whitney Theater and
Earle Hotel at 117-119 N. Main St.
Obtaining a 99-year lease on the
property, the motion picture house
chain will begin demolition im-
mediately. Plans for the type of
theater to be built are at present

Assistant Dean James H. Ro-
bertson of the Literary College has
found "a delightful way to serve;
in the Navy."
A former Army officer, Dean
Robertson spent three weeks of
the past summer aboard the USS
Worcester as a guest of the United
States Navy. He represented the
University, observing the midship-
men's naval training program..
The Worcester cruise sailed from
Norfolk, Va., with 11 battleships

and one destroyer, manned by
midshipmen from the University
and other schools. After the cruise
Dean Robertson flew home from
Dublin, while the ship staffs went
on for another five weeks of train-
Commenting on the naval train-
ing program, Dean Robertson said
"I envy the midshipmen the cruis-
es, but not the imposition of mili-
tary discipline, although, of course,
it's necessary."

Makes Call
To Students
Fresh from the wilderness of Up-
per Michigan's Ottawa National
Forest, thirty Forestry students
are back on campus. Sentenced by
the University to three months of
hard labor in the northern rain-
forest, the hardy survivors of this
battle with the elements of forestry
have not quite accustomed them-
selves again to the bright lights of
Students in the forestry and wild-
life departments of the Natural
Resources School are required to
attend Camp Milibert Roth, 15
miles from Iron River, between
their sophomore and junior years.
A total of 12 credit-hours of courses
are taken, including forest biolo-
gy, forest surveying, and forest in-
During the summer, trips are
taken to logging operations: and to
lumber and paper mills. The wild-
life students visit a wildlife ex-
periment station and a federal.
waterfowl refuge. A special feature
of the wildlife course is a week
spent studying the moose and
beaver on Isle Royale National
Park in Lake Superior,
This =year's campers scored a
first in the line of social events
when they held a "Little Paul Bun-

False ID Use Can Hurt Students' Future

A drink is a drink, but to get one
with false identification is to tam-
per with your future.
When a minor is caught trying
to purchase intoxicants with cre-
dentials not true to fact, the viola-
tor, if a complaint is signed, is'
prosecuted-and becomes a statis-
tic in police files, to be forever
after of ,interest to whomever it
may concern.
At the outset, a drinking viola-
Peek To Discuss
Court Decision
Prof. George Peek of the politi-
cal science department will partici-
pate in the first informal discussion
meeting sponsored by the Interna-
tional Center at 7:30 p.m. Friday at
the Center.
Part of a series on current is-
sues started at student request, the
group will discuss the recent Unit-
ed States Supreme Court decision
outlawing segregation in public
schools. All interested students
may attend.

tion. is of deepest concern to the
law, which prohibits the use of
false identification for such pur-
poses and enforces its thoughts on
the matter with a maximum pen-
alty of $100 fine, 90 days in jail,
one year's probation, or any com-
bination of the three.
University Interested
Student violators arouse the,
concern of the University, al-
though the violations aren't en-
tered on academic record, accord-
ing to Acting, Dean of Students
Walter B. Rhea.
Of special note is a tendency on
the part of professional schools to
look askance, in their close exami-
nation of applicants' histories, at
indications of an absence of integ-
rity--such as falsification of Uni-
versity or federal records or mis-
representation of identity for in-
toxicating purposes.
Any employer, too, has a keen
interest in the character of a pros-
pective employe as reflected by his
past. True of any situation of pos-
sible employment, this is particu-
larly the case when a job is the
kind for which a college graduate
would apply.

And the University, as Dean Res
pointed out, feels obligated to give
as detailed a report as possible on
a student or graduate when ap-
proached on the subject by some-
one whose interest is warranted.
Only action taken by the Uni-
versity when a student is' con-
victed on the charge is referral of
the case to the Joint Judiciary
Council, which may impose addi-
tional penalties.
Joint Judic, however, does not
usually indulge in "double jeopar-
dy" unless it is a severe case. Such
a violation wouldcome under the
general heading of "misconduct.'
Four Convictions So Far
Detective Lt. George Stauch of
the Ann Arbor Police indicated
approximately 50 such convictions
last year. So far this year, he has
counted four.
No estimates are available on
the number who "get away -with"
using false ID, or who are dis-
covered and refused service with-
out charges pressed against them.
Nevertheless, in view of the pos-
sible ramifications in one's future,
it isn't worth the try.
