Liquor Control
-Will Canvass
Beer Dealers
Commission Suspects
Misrepresentation of
Reported Empty Cases
LANSING,, July 30. -(P)- The
State Liquor Control Commission
said today it would canvass beer
dealers throughout the state to de-
termine how many beer cases are in
disuse as a step towards coping with
reported widespread discrepancy in
distribution of the beverage.
The commission met with tavern
lincensees and dealers in a third of
a series of conferences with groups
affiliated with the beer industry. Pre-
vously, the agency had conferred
with brewers and distributors.
R. Glenn Dunn, commission chair-
man, said that while thousands of
empty beer cases and kegs remain
uncollected in stores and taverns,
breweries are complaining of a short-
age of containers.
He said the survey would attempt
to establish what breweries or distrib-
utors were failing to collect empties
and that the Commission would
make an effort to force collections.
The dealers generally complained
they were victims of inequitable dis-
tribution of beer. Fred W. Chlopan,
executive secretary of the Michigan
table-top licensees congress, recon-
mended that the commission estab-
lish an appeal board to hear com-
plaints of unfair delivery practices.

Brownell Ends
Dry Food Tests
Blames Cessation on
Lack of Grad Students
When Indians dug their potatoes,
they spread them out to dry and then
had a tore of dehydrated foods to
use during the long winters.
It was not until the last war that
engineers took up the problems of
drying their potatoes and a project
of this war has recently been discon-
tinued because of a lack of graduate
Prof. Lloyd E. Brownell of the en-
gineering research department yes-
terday told of the end of his project
to find the drying rate coefficient for
potatoes and other vegetables. While
a series of graphs showing partial
conclusions have come out of the
project, the big problem is still not
Engineers have not yet designed a
dryer to control temperature and
humidity so that they can predict the
time needed to take the water out of
a vegetable.
Prof, Brownell says that discovery
of new methods will open a huge field
to engineers, a field which is little
known now..He hopes to obtain more
funds to continue his project some-
time in the future.
Meanwhile, drying of foods will
still be on the Indian system.

Bureau Needs
Additional Men
'Cooperation of Coeds
Greater Than Males'
"We wish all of the lonesome serv-
icemen without week-end dates and
with no prospects in sight would reg-
ister at the Acquaintance Bureau
from from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Monday or Tuesday,"- Mary June
Hastreiter, '44, chairman of the proj-
ect said yesterday.
So far the bureau has arranged
over 70 coke dates, Miss Hastreiter
stated, and more are being planned
daily. To answer some of the skepti-,
:cal soldiers," she said, "some really
swell girls have registered."
"In fact," she added, "the coeds
have done a better job of cooperating
by signing up than the servicemen
have." A recent apeal for graduate
students to sign up brought an im-
MOdiate response, and Miss Hastrei-
ter expressed the hope that more of
the officers would take advantage of
the opportunity to meet people.
Betsy Barbour Residents
To Entertain JAG School
Members 'of ,the' Judge Advocate
General school 'will be entertained'
from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. today at
an informal open house sponsored by
the residents of Betsy Barbour House.
The graduate students are plan-
ning dancing; 'bridge, and ping-pong
for the soldiers. Some impromptu
entertainment may also be presented

on the films. Therefore the cam-
ouflage laboratory has used a spe-
cial paint on the guns.
"In order that the new Ann Arbor
Airport may be skillfully concealed
from enemy planes the student cam-
ouflagers have built a scaled model
of the airport and concealed it with
unsuspecting farm land," Prof.
Whittemore said.
The planes will be flagged in'
during the day and at night lights
will illumninate the runways. Tihe
model is so constructed that a: per-
son standing on a balcony in the
laboratory is the same distance as
a plane 20,000 feet up.
The camouflage lecture course was
started last fall :and a laboratory
was added in the spring. Studeits-
enrolled are mostly servicemen Iut
the course is open to all.
