PUBLIC SERVANTS and main-
tainers of the law, the men in blue
go through a rigorous training
period while learning state and
city laws. Included in the four
week "booklearning" period is the
memorizing of 145 city ordinances,
55 of which are directly concerned
with police action.
Mental and physical examina-
tions and training in the use of
firearms are also a part of the
training preceding actual initia-
tion into uniform.
But active policemen, including
traffic officers, squad car "beat"
men and plainclothes detectives,
do more than give citizens traffic
tickets and quiet down noisy par-
ties. They have an active program
sponsoring juvenile recreation, the
purpose of which is to teach child-
ren that policemen are friends and
not prohibitors of their freedom.

FIFTY-FIVE boys between the
ages of 13 to 17, under the direc-
tion of Patrolman Chet Carter,
meet weekly for supervised base-
ball games.
Commenting on the juvenile
program, which extends to bas-

ketball and hockey in the win-
ter, Patrolman Carter noted re-
sponse from the children is
"great" and formerly troubled
youngsters often become success-
ful student leaders as a result of
interest taken in them by police-
men.
Members of the police force,
headed by Chief Caspar Enkemann
take off uniform, revolvers, hand-
cuffs and whistles for fun, how-
ever. Annual banquets and more
frequent parties are highlighted
by the appearance of the "Flatfoot
Six," an orchestra of policemen-
musicians who perform at the
piano, guitar, violin, saxophone,
bass and drums.
AT THE PRESENT time the lo-
cal police are at least 4 men short
of full force. Yesterday a police-
woman, Kathryn D. Eichorn, grad-
uate of the Police Education Divi-
sion of Michigan State College,
joined the force as women's mat-
ron and juvenile authority.
Operating with 10 squad cars,
numerous motorcycles and men on
foot, policemen on the force re-
ceive promotions only after 6 to
7 years of answering thousands of
telephone calls, making hundreds
of arrests, and receiving only oc-
casional thanks from the benefit-
ting public.

Baits Says U'
MeetsChanges
The University is meeting the
"challenges, changes, threats and
dangers" of the world today in
scores of direct actions, according
to Regent Vera B. Baits of Grosse
Pointe.
She said the University and its
sister institutions in the free world
know "better than do any other
of civilization's bulwarks that na-
tion after nation and civilization
after civilization .. . have perished
for lack of the techniques and tools
necessary for such responce."
Addressing the Master's break-
fast, Sunday, Regent Baits said
the degree of Master of Arts and
Master of Science symbolize "im-
plemented skills, trained judg-
ments, deepened insights and cour-
age of convictions."

ACCORDING TO Prof. Benning
Dexter, who will play the piano
part in the work, it reflects an im-
portant tenGency in music today.
"Composers formerly, in writ-
ing for piano in chamber music
combinations other than with
one only solo instrument, wrote
mostly piano trios," he said.
"But the piano trio, consisting of
piano, violin, and cello, is not so
successful a combination as the
piano quintet. The distance be-
tween the violin and cello is too
great to give a full ensemble
sound, and the piano by itself
is not sufficient to fill the gap."
"Since Brahms, composers, rea-
lizing this difficulty, began more
and more to use the string quar-
tet with piano to get the fuller
and more substantial sound which
the addition of two string instru-
ments, the second violin and viola,
could give.",
"THE PIANO part in this work
was originally written for the
Dutch pianist, Egon Petri," Prof.
Dexter continued. "It is brilliant
and virtuoso, but always interwov-
en with the strings. There are skips
over the piano's different registers,
which is characteristic of Mil-
haud's style."
A recitalist who has given
numerous performances through-
out the country and has appear-
ed on NBC network broadcasts,
Prof. Dexter is however no
stranger to chamber music. As a
student he would frequently get
together with close friends who
were string players to play so-
natas and other chamber music
combinations.
Commenting on chamber music
Prof. Dexter said he "enjoys play-
ing it equally as well as solo work."
This will be the second local
performance of the Milhaud Quin-
tet by the Stanley Quartet, and
Prof. Dexter. However with pianist,
Brooks Smith, the Quartet has re-
corded the work and it is now
available on LP records.
Admission to today's concert is
open to the public without charge,
Scientists To View
'T' Respirators
Scientists and medical writers,
on a tour of four respirator cen-
ters sponsored by the National
Foundation for Infantile Paralysis
will visit Ann Arbor today and to-
morrow.
Scheduled to arrive here at noon
today the group will confer at 2
p.m. at the University's Respirator
Center in University Hospital.
The group includes Roland Berg,
director of scientific information,
and Dr. Kenneth L. Laudauer, as-
sistant medical director of the
Foundation. They will also visit
Boston, Los Angeles and Houstop.

BUCHAREST, Rumania-(P)--
Communist whitewash lay thick
over Rumania's capital yesterday
as thousands of West Europeans
joined Iron Curtainers in the Red-
sponsored "Fourth World Youth
Festival."
On hand also were four Ameri-
can correspondents, the first U. S.
newsmen given Rumanian visas in
more than five years.
FOR THE visitors, the capital's
buildings sparkled with new whit-
ening and vivid flags. Virtually
every building showed signs of a
new paint job and residents said
battalions of laborers and soldiers
had been cleaning up the city for
three months.
Most buildings were draped
with flags, including the Stats
and Stripes. The American flags
sported 64 stars instead of 48,
The opening of the two week
festival in Bucharest's new sports
stadium was attended Sunday by
30,000 youths from 102 countries,
according to the official Red
claims. The affair appeared to be

one more move in the Communist
peace offensive.
The correspondents and 1,000 of
the delegates from England,
France, Italy and other western'
countries, rolled across Hungary
and Rumania on the Arlberg-Or-
ient Express. They arrived eight
hours late because the train de-
toured around the startegic Ploesti
oil field. The rerouting was neces-
sary, officials explained, because of
heavy traffic on the main line.
A red carpet was spread over
the platform at the modern Ban-
easa station in Bucharest, which
King Carol had built for royalty's
exclusive use.
There was even white bread for
sale in Bucharest-the first to be
seen here since the war, western
diplomats said.
Linguistics Talk
"Society and Linguistic Change"
will be discussed by visiting Prof.
Alf Sommerfelt of University of
Oslo at 7:30 p.m. today in Rack-
ham Amphitheater.
