Clark of CBS
Lectures on
Announcer Tells How
Radiomen Are Trained
"The announcer is the office boy
of radio, having opportunity to ob-
serve all aspects and departments
of the field: engineering, produc-
tion, casting, music," Harry Clark,
CBS announcer, in a lecture spon-
sored by the speech department, said
"Many announcers have learned
these various other aspects so thor-
oughly that they have been able to
turn from announcing to one of
them," Mr. Clark said.
Split Second Timing Needed
"Announcing is a split-second busi-
ness," he reported. "Commercial
and sustaining announcers and news
commentators broadcast on the same
program from different rooms, and
must time their comments exactly."
Newscasters today, in addition,
must be prepared for interruptions
through the circuit with Normandy
and other battlefronts set up by the
government and maintained by all
major networks, he explained.
"Radio networks get the same news
at the same time as the press
through AP, UP, and' INS teletype
machines. Newspapers, however,
have more space than radios have
time in which to elaborate on the
news. Radios can give the leads to
the public, which they follow up in
the newspapers. Radio has the ad-
vantage of being able to get the
news out to the public before the
Although spot news from Nor-
mandy beachheads may seem to be
ad lib, through the skill of announc-
ers, every bit of news must be writ-
ten out and go through rigid censor-
ship before it can be broadcast.
Important qualifications of an-
.nouncers, according to Mr. Clark,
are: natural inclination for self -ex-,
pression, as shown up in childhood
and through school years, pleasant,
friendly voice quality without dialect,
intelligence, and well-rounded edu-

Lobanov Claims
Russia Will Not
Annex Poland
Reds Desire To Make
Port of Leningrad Free
Russia has no desire to annex Pol-
and or Finland, declared Prof. Andrei
Lobanov in lecturing on "Russia and
the War" yesterday in the Rackham
He did say that there were
territorial problems with these
and other countries in whose settle-
ment Russia will play a leading role.
"Russia wants to get back the con-
trol of the Gulf of Finland so that
the port of Leningrad is free," stated
Mr. Lobanov. He described the man-
ner in which the Finns had built the
Mannerheim Line, so that the guns
from the line could control traffic in
Leningrad, the only port that Rus-
sia has on the open sea. Germany
helped Finland finance the building
of this fortress line.
Concerning the Baltic states, Prof.
Lobanov described the ties that these
small nations have with Russia, and
showed that it would be healthier for
them "to be eaten" by Russia rather
than by Germany.
Mr. Lobanov then gave the inter-
ests that Stalin had in Poland. The
Curzon Line for many reasons is the
natural and logical frontier, he said.
As to the Russians' interest in re-
annexing Bessarabia, he suggested
that these reasons are more senti-
mental than vital to the welfare of
These are the only territorial ad-
vantages that will accrue to Russia
from the war. But there is one more
thing.As a safety zone against any
possible invasion in the future, Rus-
sia will capitalize on her dominant
position in most of the Slavic states,
and consider these countries under
her zone of influence with more or
less the same attitude that the Unit-
ed States had with the Central Amer-
ican countries a few years ago.
Mr. Lobanov concluded his lecture
by showing that for Russia coopera-
tion with the Allied powers was the
best move Russia could make in her
own interest.

Aunt Ruth Asks for Dailies To
Send to 'U' Students in Service



Many more copies of the Michi-
gain Daily are requested by Mrs.
Ruth Buchanan to send to former
University students now in the army,
navy and marine corps.
Stuc'ents now on campushare ask-
ed to bring the copies of this seme-
ster's Daily to the information of-
fice in the Museums building or to
her office. During the year one per-
son from each dorm, league house or
sorority has been appointed to col-
lect the copies each week and take
them to the Museums building.
50 Names on Mailing List
Miss Buchanan, who has been of-
fering this service from the past two
years, now has about 50 names on
her mailing list. The naval and ma-
rine corps men who have just left
the campus have increased this list
and thus the request for more Dailies.
The men who have been on the
receiving end of this mail are "very
thankful to get the papers and can
hardly wait until they arrive. If
they are late or the mail plane does-
n't arrive, then the boys really know
what it is to miss the Dailies," Miss
Buchanan said.
Papers Passed Around
The papers are passed around the
ships and are read by everybody
regardless of different colleges at-
tended. Football season inevitable
brings up many discussions and bets

An average of 10 to 12 returning
veterans each week are being aided
by the University's Veterans Service
Bureau which coordinates the most
thorough and complete guidance ser-
vice available anywhere in Michigan.
In more than one-third of the
cases so far, this University service
has suggested to men who wanted to
enroll at Ann Arbor that their indi-
vidual case would be better served at
some other institution.
The Veterans Service Bureau has.
been guided by two basic ideas:
that each man is an individual and
as such has individual problems
and needs; that each man has
many interests besides the educat-
ive one and all must be taken into
account if a satisfactory educa-
tional program is to be worked out.
Problems brought by veterans vary
as widely as the men themselves.
Some who apply are well prepared
for University work, know what they

want. Others need to make up defi-
ciencies in special classes given for
them. Some may have enough high
school credits but are unfitted in oth-
er ways for university work.
To find out what the particular
discharged serviceman's abilities are
and what he can do, 17 counseling
and testing agencies and services on
campus are ready to. help. Included
are academic, vocational and reli-
gious counseling; tests for ability,
aptitude, achievement, mental hy-
Because the primary object of
the University is to help the vet-
eran plan the best possible pro-
gram for himself and not just to
enroll another student, his rec-
ord, ambition, talent all are ap-
praised. . Everyone and particular-
ly- one who is not enrolled, has a
concrete and individual program
mapped out before he leaves Ann
An example of how the system
works is the case of a soldier from
a neighboring state who wanted to
prepare for a business career by en-
rolling in the business administra-
tion school. His high school record
was poor and tests showed he was
not inclined to carry through on a
long, difficult task. He wanted re-
sults right now instead of later. With
consideration of all these factors, the
University suggested that he enter a
business college instead of starting
out on a five year course here.
Mrs. Mendoza
Gives Lecture
Women's Post-War
Role Is Discussed
"If a progressive Latin-America is
to enjoy the four freedoms in a post-
war world, it must join the demo-
cratic forces in the United States,"
Mrs. Ofelia Mendoza of Honduras
said in a lecture yesterday.
Mrs. Mendoza added that there is
a group in Latin-America willing to
keep fascism and that this group is
opposed to the women's groups.
The lecturer, who is a consultant in
the Curriculum Workshop in Inter-
American Relations, stressed the part
of the Inter-American Commission
for Women will play in the post-war
Mrs. Mendoza summed up the aims
of the Inter-American Commission
for Women which is the center of
women's activity in Latin-America
by saying that through the continu-
ous exchange of ideas both among
the countries of Latin-America and
with the United States the women of
Latin-America are preparing to take
part in peace plans and in the future
will aid in the political, social and
economic betterment of women in
their countries.



tween controlled and free economies,
and question has been raised as to
whether Russia can be a cooperat-
ive partner in a world aiming at
freer trade. Russia does not have
free markets and she conducts her
foreign trade as a state monopoly
and in a manner which does not give
rise to market exchange rates be-
tween ruble and dollar, pound, etc.
Germany Does Fit In
"Although it did not prove possi-
ble to establish stable and equit-
able trade and financial relations
with Germany and her totalitarian
satellites, there are grounds for be-
lieving that, even though Russia
represents a controlled economy, her
aims and policies will prove compati-
ble with the objectives associated
with the international fund," Prof.
Watkins declared.
"In the prewar era Soviet Rus-
sia was largely self-sufficient and
she did not engage in the types of
economic discrimination and ex-
ploitation practiced by Germany
in connection with foreign trade
and foreign loans. Moreover, Rus-
sia has in the past managed her
trade on the basis of limited in-
ternationalcredits and she has a
record of prompt payment of such
"Though much larger credits will
be needed after this war to speed up
reconstruction, and Russian experts
(including gold) will have to be ex-
panded as means of repayment, it
seems likely that her economic pol-
icy will be directed primarily toward
internal development and self-suffi-
ciency rather than toward a drive for
foreign markets."
Financial Agreements Only Begin-
"Moreover, Russia has been mov-
ing in the direction of more liberal
policies internally and she may in
time modify her policies of foreign
trade in a similar direction.
"But it should be borne in mind
that the. financial agreements at
the conference are only a begin-
ning, for other 'hitches' may arise
before legislative approval is forth-
coming in the several countries.
"In any case, liberal financial ar-
rangements are only part of the broad
problem of postwar trade and in-
vestment. Other conferences and
agreements to deal with tariffs and
other trade restrictions are a neces-
sary sequel for the final success of
the present conference."
