Blackout Test
On Wide Scale
To Include City
Public Officials, Citizens
Told To Observe Rules
For Tri-State Practice
New Plan Asked
By The Associated Press
LANSING, Aug. 5--Public offi-
cials and citizens were warned today
by Capt. Donald D. Leonard, com-1
mander of the Michigan Citizens'
Defense Corps, to familiarize them-
selves with regulations for a tri-state
blackout test covering 41 Southern
Michigan counties August 12. Other-
wise, injustice, injuries and property
damage will result, he said.
Capt. Leonard said local blackouts
in several areas recently had pro-
The tri-state blackout test which
will cover 41 southern Michigan
counties Wednesday, will include
the city of Ann Arbor, Chief of
Police Sherman Mortenson said
duced incidents in which citizens and
members of the defense corps had
been over-zealous in enforcing black-
out orders.
He recommended that no prosecu-
tions for blackout law violations be
ordered without the recommendation
of the local commander of the Citi-
zens' Defense Corps and'the sanction
of a prosecuting attorney.
Leonard said he doubted whether
many war production plants would
participate in the practice. They are
exempted, he said, but may partici-
pate upon orders of the Army to in-
dividual plant managers.

Major League Baseball:
Tie rs Lose Again; Lefty Lee
Pitches Shutout For First Win

These fifth place Detroit Tigers
don't seem bound for any higher
climes these days. They dropped
their second game in a row yester-
day to the sixth place Chicago White
Sox, 1-0, when Lefty Thornton Lee
took his sore arm out of storage for
the second time this season, scatter-
ing seven bits among the Bengals for
his first win of the year.
Adding ignominy to their futile
efforts to break into the upper divi-
sion, the run scored against the Ti-
gers was affected by one of baseball's
rarities, a home steal. Sox rookie sec-
ond sacker Don Kolloway opened the
sixth with a single, got around to
third on a bunt and a double play,
and proceeded to sneak home. Cat
catcher Dixie Parsons thought the
decision was all wrong and proceeded
to beef about it so loudly to Umpire
Bill Summers that he was tossed out
of the game for his trouble.
Hal Newhouser was charged with
the loss, despite his fine five hit
pitching performance. After two hits
each in the first and second frames,
the Tigers could muster up only three
bare singles for the next seven inn-
Night games were the order of the
day, with four on the docket. But the
afternoon contests provided some
well-pitched shutout victories. Over
in Boston, the third place Red Sox
uncorked a fourteen hit blast session
off two PhiladelphiW A's hurlers to
snap out of their doldrums, 7-0. Tex
Hughson racked up - his thirteenth
win of the year allowing only three
The Dodgers beat the dimout
deadline and the New York Giants in
a quick twilight game (1:51), before
23,232 fans, when rookie Max Macon
pitched sparkling two hit ball for a
4-0 victory.
Add vital items-The Philadelphia
Phillies, it is rumored, are conceding
the race to Brooklyn in the National,
but rumblings from the Athletics'
front office, according to iniforma-
tion gleaned from the grapevine, in-
dicate they are still hopeful for a
crack at the title despite the Yankees
scant thirty gamie lead. Which re-'

Five theological students and one
minister are receiving special clinical
training at University Hospital this
summer under the direction of the
Michigan Committee of the Council
for Clinical Training.
Rev. John Elderkin Bell, profes-
sor of psychology at Park College, is
supervisor of the ten week course.
According to Dr. Bell, the three-fold
purpose of the training is to provide
a better understanding of human
problems, to teach proper methods of
dealing with people and to show the
necessity for ministers to cooperate
with physicians, social workers and
others who deal with human prob-
The six students have spent five
weeks working on a half-time basis

was found today, and Adrian is all
set for its test blackout Friday night.
Phonograph records reproducing
the sounds of sirens were reported
missing yesterday from a filing cabi-
net in the Baptist Church, from the

is given over an amplifier.

church worker, said she saw the
records on a table and told a care-
taker to put them in a safe place.
He found them, today, and city offi-
cials rested easier.

Repetitions of Magazines I
Acquired By Library
Having recently acquired a num-
ber of microfilm reproductions of
foreign scientific and technical peri-
odicals. the University Library is
making an attempt to fill one of the'
most serious handicaps facing schol-
ars today.
These microfilms are available to
scientific research workers and serve
as an excellent guide to current
European trends. It has been diffi-
cult for libraries to obtain actual
copies of foreign magazines and
journals since the war broke out,
but authentic reproductions on film
makes them available for public use.
After being passed by the Com-
mittee on Microfilming 'Research
Materials, an Ann Arbor firm makes
and distributes the film. Over three
hundred foreign periodicals are be-
ing offered.
The microfilm is projected n a
screen. by a special machine and the
reader winds the film to the page he
desires to read. The library has fa-
cilities for five readers.

Ja p To Blame
For Ban On Apple
Shipment To West
LANSING, Aug. 5.-(AP)-Just to
add the final straw, the state de-
partment of agriculture reported to-
day the Japs are responsible for
Michigan apples being barred from
eight Far Western states.
The department said two ship-
ments of apples from Michigan were
barred by Colorado this week in obe-
dience to a quarantine against the
oriental peach moth, which came to
this country from Japan'in a ship-
ment of fruit trees.
Michigan growers must fumigate
shipments to Colorado, Oregon,
Washington, California, Idaho, Ne-
vada, Utah and Arizona or their ap-
ples will be confiscated.
