USO -Camp Performances

USO-Camp Shows, Inc., a corpor-
ation of the six United Service Org-
anizations, is now being expanded
for operations which will continue
until at least two years after the end
of the war with Japan, according to
plans recently adopted by the Execu-
tive Committee of USO.
USO-Camp Shows have risen,
since their inception less than four
years ago, to what its Executive
Vice-President, Lawrence Phillips,
in a recent statement to the press,
called "the largest theatrical book-
Plans Proceed
For Trial in
Liquor Graft
LANSING, July 7-()-Frank D.
McKay, of Grand Rapids, and five
other defendants were bound over for
trial in the current term of circuit
court on liquor graft conspiracy
charges by Circuit Judge Leland W.
Carr today. .
Judge Carr dismissed charges
against Donald Flory of Hudson,
former liquor sales -representative on
the grounds that "evidence does not
justify finding probable cause to be-
lieve he was a party to such a con-
Other defendants bound over
for trial: William H. McKeighan,
former mayor of Flint; Charles
Williams and his son Earl J. Wil-
liams, former partners in the Wil-
liams Sales Co., Detroit; Fisher
Layton of Flint, former partner
in the Layton Sales Co., and
Charles Leiter, former liquor sales
company representative.
The $5,000 bond set previously for
the defendants was continued and
they will be arraigned next Friday,
July 13 at 10 a.m.
Judge Carr denied motions to dis-
miss charges against other defend-
ants. William Henry Gallagher of
Detroit, counsel for McKay, said in
his motion "No evidence has been
submitted to justify binding him
over, nor is there probable cause to.
believe he committed any crime.'"
Isadore Schwartz, one of the or-
iginal eight defendants named in
the liquor conspiracy warrant" by
Judge Carr's one-man grand jury,
became a prosecution witness in a
surprise move in court late Friday

ing and production agency the
world has ever known." The fig-
ures cited by Mr. Phillips prove this
assertion, for through March, 1945,
IUSO-Camp Shows have given 178,-
164 performances before audiences
totalling 113,963,755.
At the request of the Army, USO-
Camp Shows recently urged every
New York producer to start immed-
iate preparation of a legitimate play
for overseas performances. The goal
set before the League of New York
Theatres by Mr. Phillips and Lt.-Col.
Marvin Young was 20 to 36 legitimate
dramas and six to eight musicals.
Twelve Broadway producers respond-
ed at once, and Dr. Lindsley F. Kim-
ball, USO President, according to a
published statement, believes that
"others will follow."
Plan for Post-War Period
"The shows asked for," Dr. Kimball
continued, "are for the 3,000,000 men
now in Europe to carry them through
the first six months after victory.-
They do not in'clude the average of
one musical and three legitimate
plays a month which must also be
produced for men stationed at over-
seas bases."
With a personnel including both
great names of the theater, radio
and the world of music and a host
of lesser known dance teams,
vaudeville artists and musicians,
USO-Camp Shows units have trav-
elled hundreds of thousands of
miles to bring entertainment to
American troops in 39 countries
and areas from Alaska to the Per-
sian Gulf and from Germany to
the Southwest Pacific.

Dr. Leonard A. Parr, Minister of
the First Congregational Church will
give the first of a series of Monday
Book Lectures in the church assem-
bly room tomorrow at 3:30 p. m.
EWT (2:30 p. m. CWT).

rich Hayek; "The Happy Time" by

Production of
Railroad Cars,
Homes Asked
He Suggests Creation
Of 2,New Authorities
By The Associated Press
DETROIT, July 7-Walter P. Reu-
ther, Vice-President of the United
Automobile Workers (CIO) propos-
ed in a statement today that the na-
tion's idle war plants be used for
the production of railroad rolling
stock and modern and durable homes.
He proposed the creation of two
new public authorities-the "Housing
Production Authority" and the "Rail-
road Equipment Authority" to im-
plement the plan. These authorities
would be empowered to lease the
plants to private manufacturers;
operate government-owned plants di-
rectly or lease them to workers' pro-
ducer cooperatives.
Willow Run Should Be Leased
Along with his proposal Reuther
suggested that the big idle Willow
Run Bomber Plant near Ypsilanti
be leased to a workers' producer co-
operative which would manufacture
both railroad rolling stock and pre-
fabricated housing.
Use of the idle plants, Reuther as-
serted, would provide a minimum of.
6,000,000 jobs.
Willow Run and the other govern-
ment-owned plants, Reuther said,
could be converted quickly to the
production of sufficient rolling stock
to modernize completely the nation's
railroads and reduce freight costs.
The new rolling stock, he said, would
be built largely of aluminum, thus
permitting greater supplies of steel
for the reconversion of the auto-
mobile and other civilian industries.
Houses to Cost $3,000
Pre-fabricated houses, he said,
could be produced with built-in fix-
tures, including bathrooms, kitchen,
garbage disposal and air-conditioning
units, electric dish washers and oth-
er appliances. The cost, he said,
would be approximately $3,000 a
The two new public authorities,
Reuther said, could be financed by
congressional appropriation as in the
case of the Tennessee Valley Author-
ity and by the sale of bonds and
products manufactured by the auth-

Gets Marianas Post
Lt. Bailey Brown, 'Lit., '39, is serv-
ing as personnel officer at an ad-

He has been in the Navy since
August, 1942 and has served over-
seas since April, 1944. In addition to
his regular duties, he acts as legal

With that in mind, Company E.,

the GI's were expected to get music
on their minds and forget how much
they wanted to go home.
