By RENE GNAMv
This year marks the 100th an-
niversary of the founding of Sigma
Alpha Epsilon Fraternity.
To celebrate the occasion, Iota-
Beta Chapter, 1408 Washtenaw,
has erected an 8'x16' map of the
United States, entitled, "A Cen-
tury of Progress in SAE."
Placed on top the local chapter's
front porch, the map correctly
marks each chapter's location in
the order in which it was added
to Sigma Alpha Epsilon's national
organization.
Naval OCS
Quota Upped
Opportunities for University
graduates to receive Navy com-
missions have heightened as quo-
tas have been greatly increased
for the Officer Candidate School
at Newport, R. I.
The program allows seniors,
within six months of graduation,
to fulfill their military obligation
by utilizing their college education
and training as Navy officers.
Applicants for commissions in
civil engineering and aviation are
particularly desired.
Information may be obtained
from Office of Naval Officer Pro-
curement, New Federal Building,
Detroit.

Each chapter is indicated by a
light bulb of Christmas tree vari-
ety. Alabama's 'Mother' Mu, ori-
ginal Sigma Alpha Epsilon, found-
ed March 9, 1856, at University of
Alabama, Tuscaloosa, Ala., is po-
sitioned with a gold light.
Commencing , its anniversary
celebration last Sunday, Iota-Beta
uses each day until March 9 to
represent one year. If a fraternity
chapter was added to the national
that year, a red light, marking its
location, is installed at the correct
position.
Next day, red lights are replaced
by white, and red bulbs are in-
stalled to indicate new chapters.
If no chapters were added in a
particular year, the day represent-
Organization
Noticesj

ing that year is omitted on Iota-
Beta's map.
A total of 136 chapters are en-
rolled in the national organiza-
tion. National headquarters are lo-
cated across from Northwestern
University campus, Evanston, Ill.
National president is Edward
Hathcock.
The Michigan Iota-Beta Chap-
ter president is Bill Elliott, '56E.
The local chapter was founded
Jan. 12, 1889. It now has 70 actives.
Jean Langlais
Wi l Perform
Jean Langlais, blind composer
and organist from the Basilica of
St. Clotilde in Paris will perform

lais attended the National Insti-
tute for the YoLing Blind in Paris,
where Andre Marchal was his
teacher. At the Paris Conserva-
tory he worked with Marcel Dupre
and studied orchestration with
Paul Dukas.

OH, FOR THE LIFE OF A NEWSPAPERMAN!
Look at the campus newspaper you are now holding. An ordi-
nary object, you think? An everyday convenience? Something
to be taken for granted?
Faugh, sirs and madams! Faugh, 1 say! Don't you know
what prodigies of skill and labor and organization and art and
science go into the making of your campus newspaper?.
Come, I'll show you. I'll take you to a typical office of a typical
newspaper on a typical campus.
The editor-let's call him D. Fermin Bohorquez, a typical enough
name-calls his staff together first thing in the morning. "All
right, you guys," he says, lighting a Philip Morris, which, natu-
rally, is the favorite cigarette of newspapermen, and of anybody
else who knows a hawk from a handsaw, "All right, you guys,"
says D, Fermin, "this here ain't no ladies whist society, this
here is a newspaper. So get out there and get the news. Get it
first, get it quick, get it right! Ed, you cover the ag campus.
Phil, you cover the school of mines. Wally, you cover home ec.
Sai, you cover buildings and grounds. Ethel, you cover the
men's gym.... All right, get going!"

With many a laugh and cheer, the reporters light up Philip
Morrises, favorite cigarette of the young and agile, and dash
away on their assignments.
D. Fermin retires to his office to smoke a Philip Morris and
write a fearless editorial scolding the university for not buying
patches for the worn-out elbows of the chess team.,
On the rim of the copy desk three rewrite men - Tensing,
Hillary, and Laverne-sit poised and expectant, waiting for the
reporters to phone in their stories. They smoke Philip Morris,
favorite cigarette of the poised and expectant. Tensing's phone
rings first; it is Ed calling from the ag campus.
"Stop the presses!" cries Ed. "Got a scoop! Hunrath T.
Sigafoos, professor of curds and whey, has just sold his article
The Romance 'of Butterfat to, the Drovers and Poulterers
Monthly."
On another phone Sam is calling from buildings a~fd grounds.
"Tear out the front page!" he cries. "Got an exclusive! Harold
'Pop' Wishnograd, superintendent of buildings and grounds,
today announced the purchase of a new doormat for the vestibule
of Burton Hall. The last doormat, it will be recalled, was eaten
by a pledge named Norman Harringay for his Chi Psi initiation."
Meanwhile, elsewhere in the city room, Ganglia Questover,
vivacious and ubiquitous gossip columnist, sits 'smoking a
Philip Morris, favorite cigarette of the vivacious and ubiquitous,
and typing out her chatty, informative tidbits: "Maureen
Valgerholtz, popular Theta, announced her engagement last
night to Webster Scuff, Oliver Jenkins, iosmo Erskine, and
Walter Penn Dowdy. Wedding dates have been set for June 9,
