for ready reference, these mater-
ials are used by students and
members of the faculty on the
campus, and by others who are en-
gaged in research.
"Because each year thousands
of tourists from all parts of the
country are attracted by the sce-
nic charms of the Upper Penin'sula,
we thought it timely to present the
tourist display during the vacation
season," Mrs. Mary Fennema, sec-
retary of the Michigan Historical
Collections, said.
"In September, the Medical
School will be honored for their
centennial anniversary and we
plan a display showing various as-
pects of the Medical School and
its gradual growth," Mrs. Fen-
nema pointed out.

tion dinner on the night of Aug-
ust 15, when at least eight boys

tors styling section, and other
interesting points in Detroit.

tional regions, whose model cars
have been judged best in their re-
gions in this annual $65,000 com-

By CAL SAMBA
Special to The Daily
FLINT-A University graduate
and former instructor, William D.
Chase, '43, has been credited with
the founding of the George Ber-
nard Shaw Society of America.
Chase, who is presently librar-
ian and book editor the Flint
Daily Journal, told The Daily that
the Society will draft a Constitu-
tion, which will be presented at
its next assembly sometime in
September., ,
THE SHAVIAN Society is dedi-
cated to promoting the knowledge
of GBS and his works in this
country. But the society will be
non-political and "non-controver-
sial" in essence, Chase said.
"Neither will the objectives of
Air Raid Siren
To Be Tested
SaturdayNoon
Air raid sirens will replace the
usual noontime whistles Saturday,
as Ann Arbor's defense warning
signals are tested.
All three siren installations-at
the University power house, the
King-Seeley Corp, plant and the
fire station-will be employed.
FROM NOON until 12:02 the
"blue" warning will issue a two-
minute steady blast. This is the
air raid probable. It will be fol-
lowed by the "red" warning, three
minute fluctuating notes from
12:05 to 12:08. At 12:10 the first
all clear signal will be sounded, a
one-minute steady blast, followed
by the second all clear from 12:13
to 12:14.
Prof. Arthur W. Bromage, Civil
Defense Director, said the tests
will be conducted "without in-
terruption to traffic or normal
occupations." Residents are to
maintain "business as usual"
during the testing.
The tests are being held to fa-
miliarize citizens with the standard
air raid warning signals specified
by the state director of civil de-
fense, Bromage said.

FURTHER STEPS in the-local,
:ivilian defense program will be
taken by recruiting about 100 aux-
iliary firemen and policemen with-
in the next few weeks.
Auxiliary firemen will be re-
cruited from volunteers and aux-
iliary policemen will be selected
by the police chief.

the society touch upon Shaw's
religious ideas," he asserted.
In acknowledgement of the So-
ciety's honor conferred upon him
Shaw sent Chase a typical Shav-
ian message explaining that the
utmost he- could claim for himself
in the 20th Century is that he was
one of the hundred best play-
writes in the world.
CHASE EXPRESSED the hope
that college students will take an
interest in Shaw and will start
their own chapters on campuses
throughout the country.
He has received dozens of let-
ters and telegrams from people
who want to join and to con-
tribute money. One individual,
however, wrote in describing
himself as a genius comparable
to Joyce, and asked the society
for $10 so that he might com-
plete his forthcoming book.
Chase and his wife have al-
ways taken a profound interest in
the works of the -playwright-auth-
or-pamphleteer, and this interest
has been enhanced by the letters
which have been exchanged be-
tween them. 1
O T H E R EXCERPTS from
Shaw's letters of acknowledge-
ment were: "The list of illustrious
names on the foundation com-
mittee of the American Shaw So-
ciety is so staggering," he wrote,
"that I am at a loss how to com-
ment on 'it or exult in it without
a gross self-complacency foreign
to my very diffident nature."
Shaw inquired why there was
yet no Einstein Society or other
societies named after other fam-
ous persons "much cleverer than
I am."
Members of the Shavian Society
include such notables as Albert
Einstein, William Randolph
Hearst, Thomas Mann, Sir Ced-
rick Hardwicke, Upton Sinclair,
Samuel Goldwyn, and George V.
Denny, Jr.

Neel off to Japan

terday for a two months research
