.Although the Willow Run Air Ter-
minal is at present "rustic", in the
words of its ticket manager, R. C.
Sanford, he predictsthat in less
than six months' time it will have
undergone such a complete change
as to be almost "unrecognizable".
This change is expected to result
from agreements now in the negoti-
ation stage, to put into operation all
the major airlines of the country
through this terminal. Once accom-
plished, these agreements will result
in making Willow Run "one of the
outstanding airports in the country"
according to Sanford.
Willow Run has already estab-
lished one new precedent in its
unique charter bus service from Ann
Arbor, whereby passengers are de-
posited directly in front of the ticket

Linguistics Luncheon
To Offer Lecturer
Prof. Thomas A. Sebeok, of Indiana
University, will speak on "The Hun-
garian Vocabulary" at the regular
Thursday luncheon conference of
the Linguistics Institute at 1 p.m.
today in Rm. 302 of the Union.
In his discussion of the Hungarian
language, Prof Sebeok will discuss
the intellectual and material develop-
ment of Hungarian culture as shown
by words borrowed from other lang-
uages. By analysis of th language
itself, Prof. Sebeok said, one can tell
what influences were felt in Hun-
garian culture as a result of neigh-
boring forces.
For example, Prof. Sebeok declared,
the Turkish words which were ab-
sorbed are those of agriculture, hunt-
ing and fishing, whereas Christian-
ity was brought to the Hungarian
people through contact with the Lat-
in and Slavic races which left words
of those origins in the present-day
Hungarian language.
Born in Budapest, Hungary, Prof.
Sebeok went through the equivalent
of high school in his native country
before taking up studies at Cam-
bridge University, England., He con-
tinued his studies in this country,
taking a B.A. at the University of
Chicago and receiving his M.A. and
Ph.D. at Princeton.
During the war Prof. Sebeok was
a civilian instructor in the Army,
teaching both the Hungarian and
Finnish languages. He was also in
the language section of the'War De-
partment where he was editor of
the "Finnish Military Dictionary".
He has been professor of linguistics
at Indiana University since 1943 and
this summer is directing the Linguis-
tic Institute's work in the Finno-
Ugric languages which are being
taught here for the first time in this
His lecture which is open to the
public will be the second in the series
sponsored by the Linguistic Institute
during the eight week summer ses-
Arg+entine Dean
Expected Here
Dr. Cortes Pla, Vice-Rector and
Dean of the Faculty of Mathematical
Sciences at the University of the
Litoral, Santa Fe, Argentina, is ex-
pected tomorrow for a two-day visit
in Ann. Arbor.
In this country at the invitation
of the State Department, Dr. Pla is
observing administration and organ-
ization of different universities. He
is the author of many publications

in the fields of mathematics and phy-
sics and heads a firm engaged in
the publication of Spanish transla-
tions of American books.
Dr. Pla will confer with members
of the University faculty in the fields
of his interest during his stay here.
Fraternities Plan
Summer Rushing
Harry Jackson, Inter - Fraternity
Council president, announced yester-
day that' there would be informal
rushing and pledging by Michigan
fraternities this summer.
New pledges will be assumed, he
said, to be part of the fall pledge
Fraternities which pledge men
during the summer, the Council de-
cided yesterday, must follow the reg-
ulation form decreed by the Dean of
Students' office, and the Inter-Fra-
ternity Council.

counter in the terminal, an innova-
ation peculiar to this airport alone,
to Sanford's knowledge.
Eight flights are made through the
airport daily, unloading and loading
passengers for the local airlines' eight
main connections-Milwaukee, Chi-
cago, Cleveland, Newark, Pittsburgh,
Norfolk, New York City and Wash-
ington, D.C. Passengers desiring to
travel further are transferred to
other connections at these centers.
The DC-4 is the only type of plane
being nsed at the airport at present.
The plane accommodates 59 pas-
sengers and is operated by a crew
of four, including two stewardesses.
Besides the main room, where the
ticket counter and waiting benches
are dwarfed by the space and high
ceilings overshadowing them, there
are the office, the maintenance and
operations rooms, equipped to the
highest efficiency with teletype ma-
chines, a large blackboard with flight
schedules and personnel listed much
like that of a train station's time
table except that it seems larger,
and other operation machinery.
Most of the passengers served by
the airlines so far have been busi-
nessmen, but Sanford said he had
noted several students during the
week at the close of the spring term,
and he expects or "hopes" that many
more will take advantage of the con-
venience and time-saving afforded
travelers by air.
The "exclusiveness" of'Willow Run
Airport in the dearth of roadsigns to
guide persons there, has been noted,
Sanford admitted, and hastened to
add that the "wheels are already in
motion to put up the necessary
signs," which will direct persons to
the terminal instead of to the main
gate of the gigantic automobile plant
which adjoins the terminal.

The United States stepped into the

to seize a large share of Austrian in-

Gen. Mark W. Clark in a note to
Figl declared the United States would
not recognize the transfer to Russia
of properties falling into the category
of forced transfers, as enunciated at

Veteran Aid

By The Associated Press
HOLYOKE, Mass., July 10-Seven
men parachuted to safety from a
Navy experimental plane late today
only a short distance from Mount
Tom, where 25 persons died last night
in the mountainside crash of a con-
verted flying fortress.
The seven men aboard the Navy
craft took to their chutes as the
plane caught fire and crashed in
nearby Palmer.
Investigators were still examining
the charred remnants of the B-17
when the navy two-engined plane
crashed on a flight from the Pratt
and Whitney plant at East Hart-
ford, Conn., to Westover Field.
The dead in the crash on the side
of Mount Tom included homeward-
bound Army, Navy and Coast Guard
Pitiful personal belongings, scat-
tered over a fire-blackened quarter-
mile-square area, led Westover Army
Air Field officers to estimate that the
dead included 11 Coast Guard en-
listed men, two Coast Guard officers,
two Army enlisted men, four Army
crewmen, a Navy yeoman and five
The passenger-carrying B-17, be-
lieved loaded to capacity, roared
through a fog and slammed into
the 1,200 foot mountain 200 feet
from its summit at about 9:20 p.m.
last night.
Salvage crews recovered the last
of 25 mangled and burned bodies late
today and transferred them to a
Holyoke funeral home. Fire and in-
tense heat that existed 10 hours after
the crash hampered emergency crews
from Westover Field.

"The firm stand taken by the Na-
tional Lawyers' Guild in making the
law a living factor in protecting the
rights of all citizens, particularly
members of minorities, is responsible
for the national growth in the Guild's
membership," Ann Fagan Ginger, one
of the University's delegates to the
Guild's convention last week, said
Presided over by President Robert
Kenny, attorney-general of Cali-
fornia, the convention drew dele-
gates from all the nation's large cit-
ies, as well as law students from
Columbia, Southern California, Chi-
cago, Wayne, Northwestern and
Michigan, she said. -
Highlight of the convention, ac-
cording to Mrs. Ginger, was a ban-
quet honoring Sen. Claude Pepper
(Dem.-Fla.) for his work advancing
"the legal traditions of President
Franklin D. Roosevelt as symbolized
in the New Deal and the United
Nations." Pepper stated that the pro-
gressive spirit of the people has suf-
fered defeats only because "the re-
actionaries have been working over-
Resolutions passed by the conven-
tion condemned U.S. Attorney Gen-
eral Tom Clark's recent activities, in
particular his Chicago speech ad-
mitting that more than a thousand
civil rights cases now lying in his
Justice department "can not possibly
be handled", according to Mrs. Gin-
ger. His "failure to protect the rights
of Negroes who wished to register
and vote in the Mississippi primary,
and the unscientific white-washing
of the trial of Negro community lead-
ers in Columbia, Tenn. by Clark's
Federal Grand Jury" were also con-
demned, she stated.
Other resolutions criticized Ameri-
ca's "imperialistic foreign policy",
urged immediate implementation of
the Anglo-American report onPales-
tine, demanded return by-Congress
of a strengthened OPA, and con-
demned the "racial and religious dis-
crimination" employed in selecting
members of legal societies and the
"quota system" practiced in some
university professional school enroll-
ment policies, Mrs. Ginger said.

On Spies Published
John Schwarzwalder, former Uni-
versity student, has published a book
on the Counter Intelligence Corps
entitled "We Caught Spies."
Dealing with an account of over-
seas adventures with the CIC during
the war Schwarzwalder tells many
stories of wartime experiences. His
book received a favorable review in
the Saturday New York Times.
Schwarzwalder was a student at
the University around 1940-41 and
was active in Play Production and
the School of Music and wrote a

Manuscripts in the fields of poetry,
drama, fiction and the essay are
needed, Huber said, but publication
is dependent upon the quality of the
material submitted. Any member of
the University is eligible to submit
manuscripts, Huber declared, and
publication in the magazine will not
disqualify a work from the summer

Organized in 1938 as a separate
literary magazine and associated with
