Eugene B. Power, president of Pro-
jected Books, Inc., will become presi-
dent of the Board of Directors of the
Ann Arbor Community Fund follow-
ing the resignation of Rabbi J. M.
Cohen this month.
Power served as president of the
Community Fund Board in 1945
and was a member of the Board in
1944. He has been active in com-
munity affairs for a number of years,
as a member of the Washtenaw
County Defense Council in 1944 and
of the Council of Veterans' Affairs.
As president of Projected Books,
Inc., a non-profit corporation, Power
is now endeavoring to bring reading
matter to the bedridden and physi-
cally handicapped who have hereto-
fore been deprived of the pleasure of
reading. This is done through the
"projected book," which is a small
projector for flashing a microfilm
of the printed page on the ceiling
above the bedridden person, so that
he may read an entire book by mere-
ly pressing a button.-Projected books
are being made available to the
helpless through gifts of service
clubs, philanthropic organizations,
and interested citizens.

Hear Dr. Smith
Predicts Longer Life,
Less Future Disease
Old age and disease will always
be with us, according to Dr. Austin
Smith of the American Medical As-
sociation who spoke here yesterday.
"Man will live longer and with less
disease in the future, but I don't think
there ever will be methods of en-
tirely preventingcancer, tuberculo-
sis' and other diseases," Dr. Smith
told 140 hospital pharmacists at-
tending an Institute on Hospital
Secretary of the Council on Phar-
macy and Chemistry of AMA, Dr.
Smith said that in the future, "we
will have substances that will cure
all forms of malaria and others that
will do much to control and cure
the various tropical diseases."
Pointing to the increase in life
span from 49 to 65 years' in the per-
iod from 1900 to 1946, he predicted
a possible further increase of 10
years or more, but stated, "I don't'
think hormones to prevent old age
will ever be perfected."
Indicating the progress in drug
therapy and medical practice made
since World War I when "we had
very little of anything in the drug
field," Dr. Smith said that 12 out
of every 1,000 men sent overseas in
the first war died, while only one
out of every 1,000 sent overseas in
this war lost their lives.

judge the effect of the buyers' strike.",
He described the buyers' strike "as,
a healthy thing."

Glass brick walls and fluorescent
lighting are features of Joseph
Heath's modern New York apartment
transplanted to the stage of the
Lydia Mendelssohn this week for the
play "Pigeons and People".
A living room, a hallway leading
to other rooms in the apartment,
and an entrance to the dining room,
all done in light greens, yellow and
brown, are visible to the audience.
T1- colors chosen serve a double
purpose, Herbert Philippi, designer
of the set explained. Light yellow
walls light up and show off actors'
faces. Dark background in the mid-
dle of the set, sharpens actors' pro-
The glass bricks are glass paper
covered by light grey strips of wood.
Light behind- the strips cast shadows
causing the bricks to look realistic.
"No one lends out modern furni-
ture," Philipi said, "It is usually too
new to be risked. Old. victorian fur-
niture we. can get; therefore most
of the furniture was bought second
hand and rebuilt."
Davenports are six inches higher
for actors than for ordinary people,
Philippi explained. Though it is com-
fortable to sit knees under chin on a
soft davenport, actors sitting on that
kind of furniture present an awkward
appearance on the stage. Planks are
placed under the davenport cushions
to make the total davenport lower
under the actors weight. The one
part then, where the actor is sitting
does not sink so far.
Shutters above a doorway give the
the walls an open appearance creat-
ing an illusion of spaciousness, Phi-
In stage craft, the set and bal-
ance of furniture is supposed to be
symetrical without actually appear-
ing that way, Philippi said. A bal-
ance is pleasing, but if it is too ap-
parent the room can look formal.
Asked what color scheme he would
have chosen for a woman, Philippi re-
plied, "It depends on what kind of a
woman the character is. Cool plain
colors suit an extrovert," he said.
"Somebody said once," he continued,
"that a fussy set, in which many col-
lected articles are displayed, belongs
to an introvert. Plain rooms suit
extroverts. That gives a rough idea
as to how character of the owner is
A knowledge of architecture, inter-
ior design and period furnishings are
necessary for set designing, Philippi

Clinical data shows that strepto-
mycin is proving of sensational value
in fighting disease, according to Clif-
ford W. Price of the Federal Food
and Drug Administration.
Speaking yesterday to the five-day
Institute on Hospital Pharmacy
which ends today, Price reported that
"in one form of influenzal meningi-
tis the clinical cures are of a degree
never yet attained by any other
"In gram negative bacteriemias
(where there is bacteria in .the blood)
which were formerly universally fatal
the response has exceeded the wildest
expectations," according to Price.
"In infections of the urinary tract,
streptomycin has been found to be
of great value and has well been
termed the 'most efficient' urinary
antiseptic known so far," Price stated.
"In tularemia or 'rabbit fever' the
response is prompt and the high per-
centage .of, clinical cures is extremely
Regarding tuberculosis, typhoid
fever, wound infections and some
other diseases, Price said, "there has
not been sufficient clinical data ac-
cumulated to permit a final state-
ment concerning effectiveness of
streptomycin but information from
present studies may result in effect-
ing a large number of cures
