Post-War Council Round Table
To Discuss Future Of Capitalism

The students and faculty of the
Education school will gather at the
Women's Athletic Building from 8 to

have amusement provided for them
in the form of many individual and
group sports, such as potato golf,
feather tennis, bowling, and a bridge
tournament. There will be social
dancing to the accompaniment of
Gordon Hard's Orchestra led by Doc
Sprachlin. A special feature will be
instruction in lively cowboy dances.
This part of the evening's entertain-
ment will be conducted by H. C. Lai-
bee who is a student and part time
teacher in the University. Lest any-
ore find himself wearied by over-
strenuous participation in the many
diversions offered refreshments will
be provided.

fair for the School of Education,
is being sponsored by four campus
organizations: The Men's Educa-
tion Club, The Women's Education

Practice Bomb
Fighting Here
Incendiary bombs blazed in the
Health Service parking lot yesterday
afternon, but it was only to show
Michigan firemen the correct meth-
od of extinguishing them.
Nate Davis of the State Fire Mar-
shal's Office, made the demonstra-
tion as part of the program of the
fourteenth annual Michigan Fire
College being held on campus this
week. Approximately 100 firemen
from all over the state are enrolled in
the four day course sponsored by the
University Extension Service.
After explaining the actions of five
commonly used incendiaries, Davis
gave an actual demonstration of ef-
fective methods for putting out the
potent magnesium bomb. He used
fire extinguishers, sand, spray tanks
and a pump and pail combination to
put out the hot fires resulting when
the bomb was ignited.
This morning's talks will deal with
electrical fire hazards, public mobil-
ization and the relationships between
military and civilian protection.

MacConnell Tells Results
Of Educational Survey

youths between the ages of 16 and

work, while today we are drafting
their services," James D. MacCon-
nell of the American Youth Commis-
sion, declared in yesterday's educa-
tion series lecture in University High
"Youth themselves can contribute
towards planning the post-war peri-
od," he said. "If they are important
for war why are they not important
for peace?" Speaking on the topic
"Michigan's Study of It's Youth
Problem," MacConnell described a
survey of rural education in this
state, the results of which revealed
decidedly poor educational facilities
in the state's rural areas. He proposed
that our primary school system be
abandoned and provisions made for
a community school that will be the
center of community activity for all
types of educational and recreational

Plunging with the help of a lively
breeze over the two mile windward
and leeward course at Whitmore
Lake, the Michigan Sailing Club in-
augurated its intraclub racing sea-

and 12.
Led by winning two man crews
composed of Acting Commodore
Jerry Powell and Don Rendinell, Dick
Johnston and Bob Taylor, and Glenn
Poyzer and Mason Rumney, the
white string of catrigged dinghies
plowed over the finish line five times
within the two days.

Urging all fraternities to cooper-
ate in the new IFC blood donation
drive, Chairmen Jack Wiese, '44, and
Jack Hooper, '44BAd, yesterday an-
nounced complete details of the plan.
In an effort to create standing
lists of blood doning fraternity men,
forms were mailed to all house presi-
dents last Thursday. Those who
wish to contribute their blood will
be notified the next time the Red
Cross portable unit is in Ann Arbor
and appointments will be made at
that time.
Toe chairmen are particularly
anxious to register men who plan on
being in school next fall, since the
traveling Blood Bank will make sev-
eral trips here during the winter
Men under the age of 21 will have
to secure written permission from
their parents, according t& Wiese,
and are requested to do this as soon
as possible

IFC To Compile Blood Donor List;
Also Survey of Unaffiliated Men


Pedal to your heart's con-
tent. Your Mary Barron
slip will stay put.

Feeling that there are many inde-
pendent men in the University who
still wish to join a fraternity, the
IFC announced Thursday that a dor-
mitory survey will be made in the
near future which will cover unaffil-
iated upper-classmen, as well as first
semester freshmen.
Under the direction of Dick Em-
ery. '44E, double post-cards, contain-
ing a set of questions, will be sent to
all dorm - riesdents. Students are
urged to answer these questions and
to return the cards as soon as pos-
Emery explained that many men,
who were unable to pledge during
their first year, have always main-
tained an interest in fraternities, but
were unable to visit the various
houses since old contacts had been
forgotten. Under the new plan, for-.
mal rushing lists will be prepared and
sent to all houses.


The patented construction
prevents the slip from riding
up, pulling down or twisting
around. And there are no
trick gadgets, no inserts of
rubber (thank goodness) or
anything but the beauty of
correct design.
