.told the bridegroom "I have your
clothing for you."

Modern Greek
Offered Here
As War Work
New Course Will Stress
Conversation Training,
Prof. Blake Declares
A completely practical course in
modern Greek, listed by the govern-
ment as a language important to the
prosecution of the war, is being
taught by Prof. Warren E. Blake of
the department of Greek languages
and literatures.
Anticipating new fronts in Tur-
key or Asia Minor where Greek is
the most widely spoken language,
Professor Blake will emphasize con-
versation rather than reading in the
four hour course, and students will
learn "to talk to any policeman in
Athens" rather than spend their I
time mastering the highly stylized
and artificial literary Greek used in
formal writing and declaration.
No previous knowledge of Greek is
required for the course, which will
begin with instruction in Greek
characters, and continue with the
study of arts and two Greek news-
papers published in New York.
The course will be held at 9 a.m. on
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Fri-
day throughout the summer and fall
semester, and may be continued after
that.
According to Professor Blake this
is the first time in more than 40
years that such a course has been
taught on this campus. Similar
courses are being given at Johns
Hopkins, Harvard, California and
Chicago Universities.
"Ancient Greek will be of little
help in this course," observed Profes-
sor Blake, "for although the same
letters are used and the languages
are fundamentally the same, it bears
the relationship to modern Greek
that the English of Chaucer bears to
today's slang."
.bicycle ' Riders Remindd
To Obey Traffic Rulings
LANSING, June 15.-(P)-Vaca-
tion-time and war-time emphasis on
the use of bicycles creates another
traffic problem, the state health de-
partment warned today.
Pointing out that 41 bicycle riders
were killed in Michigan accidents
last year, the department urged par-
ents to "impress on children that a
bicycle is a subject to the same gen-
eral traffic rules as an auto."

Heads News Agency

Elmer Davis, writer and radio
commentator, has been named by
President Roosevelt to head a
newly-created "Office of War In-
formation."
lxlTransferred To
.ecr f, Post
Ending a three-year sojourn on
the Michigan campus as Assistant
Professor of Military Science, Colo-
nel Harrie D. W. Riley, University
graduate of the Class of 1911, has
been transferred from the ROTC
unit to an unrevealed post, it was
announced by the military science
department yesterday.
Col. Riley was transferred to the
University faculty in 1939 and has
served here ever since, establishing
one of the longest records of service
at the post in the unit's history.
Since 1939 Col. Riley, acting as head
of the Engineer Unit of the Reserve
Officers Training *Corps, has in-
structed cadets, specializing in the
instruction of military engineers.
Had Engineering Here
Born in Normal, Ill., in 1887, the
Michigan alumnus attended the Uni-
versity of Iowa for two years before
transferring to the engineering col-
lege of the University of Michigan.
He graduated from the University
in 1911 with the degree of Bachelor
of Electrical Engineering.
Previous to World War I, Col. Riley
went into railroad work, serving as
Railway Signal Engineer, and later
serving in a technical capacity on a
brapch of the ICC.
He entered the World War in 1917,
and served with the Purchase and
Traffic Division of the General Staff.
Served In Panama
Finding army life to his liking, Col.
Riley went to Panama where he
spent three colorful years with the
11th Engineers. Since his Panama
service, the versatile engineer has
worked at many tasks, including the
operation of the hydroelectric plant
at Muscle Shoals. Before being as-
signed to the University of Michigan,
Colonel Riley spent some time as
Engineering Instructor with the Illi-
nois National Guard. When assigned
to the University post, Colonel Riley
held the rank of a major.
Students who wish to enter co-
operative houses this semester or
in the fall will be interviewed at
8 p.m. today and tomorrow in
Room 306 of the Union W the
personnel committee of the In-
tercooperative Council.

Local Citizens
Donate Rubber
To Aid Drive7
(Continued from Page 1)
tioning is not all that is at stake in
the salvage campaign.
"The rubber shortage already has
caused serious handicaps to our mili-
tary machine," he declared. "Building
of tank treads, life rafts, gas masks,
barrage balloons and other military:
needs depends upon an adequate sup-
ply of rubber."
Meanwhile, in Detroit the state
scrap rubber campaign committee
representing oil companies of the
state met to formulate plans at full
speed ahead. The committee is com-
posed of Kempf of the local Staebler-
Kempf Oil Company, Howard Coffin
of Socony-Vacuum Oil Company,
Rankin Peck of the Michigan Retail
Gasoline Dealers Association, a rep-
resentative of the Michigan Farm
Bureau and Reed Brazil of Leonard
Refineries.
Dawson Local Chairman
Eighty-three local committeemen
were appointed at the meeting to su-
pervise the local drives. The local
chairman is William Dawson.
The Associated Press yesterday re-
ported that a Herculean scavenger
job is being performed throughout
the nation as citizens combed gar-
rets and basements for the precious
rubber. Authorities saw a conclusion
even more successful than a bang-up
beginning.
Machinery for the nation-wide col-
lections is in the hands of the oil
industry from the 200,000 stations to
the great refineries. Some 800,000
workers are donating time to aid in
the drive.
Scrap Sent To Depots.
From the local stations the scrap
will be sent to depots designatedby
the oil companies. It will be pur-
chased from them at the rate of one
cent per pound.
Any profits from the donations of
scrap will be turned over to the Red
I Cross and the USO. All scrap will
be sent to reclamation plants for
war use.
Aid in the drive will be drawn
from Boy Scouts, Civilian Defense,
local groups and Chambers of Com-
merce.

LANSING, June 15.-tiP)-Gover-
nor Van Wagoner today took public
issue with the suggestion of Probate
Judge Arthur E. Moore of Pontiac
that Michigan, unless it can provide
proper care of feebleminded persons,
consider condemning them to pain- I
less death.I
"The only conclusion I can drawl
from your letter," Van Wagoner,
wrote in an open reply, "is that you
are seeking in an emphatic manner7
to call public attention to the long1
standing failure of Michigan to meet
in full the mental illness problem.
"But in my opinion you have left
solid ground when you suggest that
the State seriously consider 'mercy
killing,' scientifically known as eu-
thanasia.
"I am opposed to 'mercy killing.'
It is an unjustified invasion of the
right of innocent persons to live, and
can lead only to the most serious of
excesses when once started."
He added that Michigan allows

capital punishment of criminals only
in event of treason.
Van Wagoner's letter said Michi-
gan has accelerated its program for
rehabilitating persons with mental
ailments, and has opened facilities
for care of 4,000 additional patients
since the start of a hospital building
program by former Governor Frank
Murphy. He said the war and in-
ability to obtain priorities for needed
materials "have halted a further
building program." He pointed out
that to relieve hospital overcrowding

the State Hospital Commission is
experimenting with a^boarding-out
program for certain types of patients,
and declared that "in the past 18
months we have institutionalized
some .1,200 feeble-minded persons
from a waiting list of 1,500."
At a press conference, Van Wagon-
er discussed Judge Moore's propos-
al, demanding "isn't that what Hitler
is up to? I hope we are not going to
have that set-up in this country.
That's one of the things I thought
we were fighting against."
