Savage Storms,

Ann Arbor Hit by Partial Electrical
Power Blackout, Damaged Wires
By The Associated Press
As a result .of a brief rain, wind and thunder storm in Ann
Arbor last night, electrical wiring and power lines were damaged
and sections of the city were darkened for a short time.
Extent of the damage, was not. serious, however, although large
trees in the area were downed by strong winds. Lightning struck a
local home on Birk street, partially damaging it by fire. Whitmore
Lake officials also reported one small fire.

AS A COLERIDGE scholar at
the University, he wrote his doc-
tor's dissertation in 1951 on the
pschological criticism of Coleridge.
So far in his writing career,
Millar has published nine mys-
tery novels, many under the pen-
name of John Ross Macdonald.
His first effort printed was a,
parody of Sherlock Holmes, in a
high school magazine. Interest
~ number two in detective writing
was due to his wife, who was a
mystery novelist. Millar did edi-
torial work on her stories and later
went on to write his own.
Third reason was Henry C.
Branson, "a very fine mystery
writer in Ann Arbor."
"Most of my recent stories are
of the hard-boiled thriller type,"
he said.
"Ideas come from actual mur-
der cases, stories people tell me
about their experiences and my
own observations. I once wrote a
spy book set in a background bear-
ing some resemblance to Ann Ar-
bor," he commented.
"But none of my characters are
taken so much from real life that
anybody has yet sued for libel,"
the author explained.
Millar said that "The detective
story, to the extent that it is to
be taken seriously as a literary
form, is an attempt to express
social and psychological guilt in
order to reduce it to manageable
terms or symbols and to purge it."
"But the detective story isn't en-
tirely a successful venture, the
tragedy is the proper way to do
it," Millar explained.
We seem to be rather short on
tragedy, and it may be that the
mystery novel is one of our more
inadequate substitutes, according
to Millar.
"One reason for its inadequacy
is in the form-it lends itself to
evasion and mystification, which
may be'one reason it is so popu-

Housing Fund

House Republicans charged yester-

A Democrat promptly challenged
the report and said its release now
was "a very unfair thing."
The charges were filed with the
House in a printed report by the
three-man Republican majority of
a subcommittee of the House gov-

Rep. Hoffman (R-Mich.) heads

Rep. Dawson (D-Ill.), senior

officials of the Public Housing Ad-
