FROM ALL REPORTS it looks as
though the House of Representa-
tives is going to revise the draft ex-
tension bill passed by the Senate
Thursday. The congressmen have to
-only one-third of the Senators will
be up for reelection in November 1942
but already .every one of the 435 boys
in the House is thinking of how sorry
he'd be to leave Washington and
"devote his time to his law practice."
For three days now, the DNB has
been shouting the news that Ger-
man Panzer divisions had encircled
Kiev and that capture was immi-
nent. The time seems about ripe
now to announce that the "Pansy
Circle" isn't quite coming up to ex-
pectations.
Briggs To Be Honored
DETROIT, Aug. 9.--R)-Owner
Walter O. Briggs of the Detroit Ti-
gers will receive a Boy Scout plaque
Tuesday when 5,000 youngsters of
the Detroit area are guests at the
Cleveland game here. Briggs is to
be cited for his contribution to clean
sports in the community.

THURSDAY Hank Greenberg hit a
, homer, a double and two singles
in a game between the Jackson Pri-
son team and a squad from Camp
Custer and yesterday was suddenly
promoted to the rank of corporal with
a salary of $54 a month. All of
which is a definite indication that
Uncle Sam has decided to really com-
pete with Walter O. Briggs for the
big outfielder's services.
When Governor Van Wagoner
designated Nov. 20 as Thanksgiv-
ing day for Michigan, he did some-
thing that President Roosevelt may
unfortunately want to change be-
tween now and turkey-time. We
sincerely hope that no one decides
to raise the auestion of states' rights
again.
BOTH DETROIT and Chicago are
now busily engaged in raising
dimes to help celebrate, a Tommy
Bridges and a Charlie Root Day. It's
nice to see such respect for old age.
The Robert Quillen of the Free
Press, who said: "Cartoonists al-
ways picture school teachers as
homely old maids. Don't you guys
know any teachers?" Yes, we do, so
what!'

ACCORDING to yesterday's paper,
the A.F. of L. has officially voiced
its approval of aid to Russia. Now
that they have reached this fateful
decision we guess that it's all right for
Frankie Delano to go ahead. Finally,
we've found out who was running the
country.
Last Chance To Cut Up

Saturday at the "Final Fling" in the
League.
Bluebooks are posted throughout
the campus advertising the dance,
and League Council has given them

The "Final Fling" is an informal
affair, an occasion which chairman

an ample chance to celebrate the1
close of Summer School.

Hidden Town
Plan Houses
100 Families
BALTIMORE, Aug. 9.-(A')-One
'hundred families of airplane workers
will move next week into a new "hid-
den village" of 300 low-rent homes
sent shooting up, seven a working
day, by laborers using hammers and
levels.
It's a village of permanent homes,
renting for $30 to $35 monthly, that
mushroomed under the shadow of
bombers roaring off on test flights.
One technique of airplane manufac-
ture was used in the construction.
The village was built by the Glenn
L. Martin Company, through a sub-
sidiary, for some of its workers. It
grew so quickly, on a peninsula near
Middle River behind the closely-
guarded airplane factory, that few
persons knew it existed until Martin
announced it today. Ground was
broken May 28.
Two days ago the Farm Security
Administration opened a trailer camp
at another area to care for some of
the huge influx of defense workers
here.
A new type of prefabrication,
called encased insulation, was used
for the five-room homes.

still leaped high tonight from the
crumpled hulk of the Canadian tank-
er Transiter as Federal and local
agencies pressed inquiries into the
blast that ripped the vessel open last
night with a cost of two lives.
Nearly 24 hours aiter the explosion
set ablaze the Transiter's 600,000-gal-
lon cargo of gasoline, there was no
official indication of sabotage as a
cause of the blast.
John S. Bugas, in charge of the
Detroit office of the Federal Bureau
of Investigation, said that unless in-
vestigation by FBI agents turned up
evidence of sabotage, his office would
drop out of the inquiry.
The bodies of Roger Frechette, 24-
year-old crew member who was seen
to sink after leaping into the water,
and of Mrs. Rodolphe Tremblay, wife
* of the Transiter's captain, were re-
covered by harbormaster's police to-
day from the Rouge River near the
scene of the explosion at the Wabash
Railroad drawbridge. They drowned
when they and all others aboard the
tanker leaped into the water following
the blast, which occurred shortly after
the vessel left an oil company's dock
bound, for Toronto.

hospital where they and six other per-
sons were treated for burns and bruis-
es last night.
Wayne County Prosecutor William
E. Dowling said tonight he understood
the explosion that ignited the inflam-
mable cargo occurred in the tanker's
No. 5 tank. Dowling directed detec-
tives to question employes of the
Windsor Welding Co., saying that the
tanker had put in at Windsor, Ont.
docks Thursday night to have the No
5 tank welded.
Detroit police and fire authorities
expressed belief that if the explosion
were accidental, Friday's extreme heat
-97 degrees-might have been a
contributing factor.
The fireboat John Kendall and hose
companies kept heavy streams of
water pouring into the blazing vessel
tonight, as officers fearing further ex-
plosions should bulkheads collapse,
kept spectators at a safe distance.
T' Standards
Is Carrothers'
Speech Topic
Dr. George E. Carrothers, director
of the Bureau of Cooperation with
Educational Institutions, will present
his talk "The University's Standards
for Accrediting High Schools" tomor-
row at 4:05 in the University High
School Auditorium.
Dr. Carrothers is a graduate of the
University of Indiana, with a master
and doctor's degree from Columbia
University. Dr. Carrothers' experi-
ence for his present post includes
that of a high school teacher, assist-
ant superintendent of schools in
Cleveland, and professor of education
at both Ohio University and Ohio
State University, later Dean of Rol-
lins College in Florida.
In 1929 Dr. Carrothers came to the
University of Michigan. In addition
to his directorship he is half time pro-
fessor in the School of Education.
The Bureau of Cooperation with Edu-
cational Institutions was previously
called the High School Inspection
Service. Since the department not
only dealt with high schools, but with
junior colleges, colleges and oth-
er educational institutions it was
changed to its present name in 1932.
Assisting Dr. Carrothers in his work
in the Bureau are Dr. Harlan Koch
and Dr. Edgar Johnston. Other facul-
ty members under Dr. Carrothers also
work through the bureau visiting
schools and otherwise cooperating
with educational institutions.
Far East Topic
Of Discussions
Anglo-American Measures
To Curb Japanese Drive
(By The Associated Press)
LONDON, Aug. 9.-"Increasingly
tougher" British-American measures
to curb the Japanese advance south-
ward toward the Dutch East Indies,
Malaya and the Philippines, or
northward toward hard - fighting
Russia, are an urgent topic of diplo-
matic discussion, a qualified inform-
ant said tonight.
Economic sanctions already im-
posed in collaboration by Britain and
the United States "are merely the
first step in a policy toward Japan
which is to grow increasingly tough-
er," this source said.
