Beauty Queen, Starlet Visits Ann Arbor'

In spite of her success as a
beauty queen contestant and a
year as a Hollywood starlet, Miss
Ceylon of 1955. has remained a
sweet, charming young girl.
Maureen Hingert is now visit-
ing Michigan and Ann Arbor for
the first time since she came to
the United States a year ago as
Ceylon's entry ih the Miss Uni-
verse contest.
Her country's first entry in the
international beauty contest, she
walked off with third place and
a movie contract with Universal
Studios in , Hollywood. But it
seems the sloe-eyed beauty will
be the last contestant from Cey-
lon, for several years at least.
Buddhists Disapprove
Miss Hingert explained that
since the last contest a new poli-
tical party was voted into power
and a section of Buddhist priests,
who disapprove of beauty con-
tests, have come to be the dom-
inating political force in Ceylon.
"But I am trying to encourage
my people that this is a good
contest and not what they think
it is," she said. "It is a real clean
contest and no strings are pulled
behind the scenes."
Flashing her slow smile, she
related how she happened to en-
ter the Miss Ceylon contest. "The
contest wasn't announced in the
newspapers; people came around
asking parents if they would let
their daughters enter."
Got Parents' Permission
"When they asked mine, I was
in school and they flatly refused
to let me enter," she explained.
,"But when I returned from
school and learned what hap-
pened, I asked and asked until
they finally let. me enter."
"And when the nuns at school
heard that I was in a beauty
contest," she laughed, "were they
ever shocked."
Now under contract with Burt
Lancaster's Bel Aire independent
movie studio,, Miss Hingert has
already acted in several movie and
television productions. She did the
dancing in the movie "Elephant
Walk" which was made in Ceylon.
On TV she co-starred with Tab
Hunter in "Cross on the Sand"
and she had a part in the movie

U.S. Group
Plans Study
Of Lamprey
With control of the parasitic sea
lamprey as its main objective, the
International Great Lakes Fish-
eries Commission will hold its first
annual meeting at the University
late in November.
The Commission will receive ap-
proximately $1,000,000 from the
United States and Canadian gov-
ernments to begin its work. Loca-
tion of the Commission at the
University was announced by its
chairman, John L. Farley, follow-
ing a meeting at Sault Ste.. Marie,
Ontario, this week.
Established by an international
treaty that became effective Oct.
11, 1955, the Commission will set
up headquarters on the first floor
of a University-owned building on
the north side of the campus.
Canada Gives $600,000
The Commisison will receive an
amount in excess of $600,000 from
the United States government and
about $300,000 from the Canadian
government. This represents. the
approximate ratio of water con-
trolled by the two governments.
Three Americans and three
Canadians comprise the member-
ship of the commission, which
first visited the campus last month
in search of headquarters.
University officials said the Uni-
versity was selected as the site for
the commission's headquarters be-
cause of the numerous facilities
and organizations already on the
campus that deal with fish and
aquatic research.
Studies Located Here
These include the Great Lakes
Institute, the Great Lakes Com-
mission, the Great Lakes Fisheries
Investigations (a branch of the
United States Fish and Wildlife
Service), the School of Natural
Resources, and, the Institute for
Fisheries Research of the Michi-
gan Department of Conservation.
The Commission will make use
of the research agencies of the two
nations in granting funds for re-J
search, accordin gto James W.
Moffett, who serves as temporary
executive-secretary of the Com-
"We will continue with the elec-
trical barrier defense against the
sea lamprey," he said, "and will
continue working on the 'selective
poisons' that are still in the labor-a
atory state."
United States members of the
commission include Farley, who is(
director of the United States Fish1
and Wildlife Service; L. P. Vogt,i
director of the Wisconsin Conser-
vation Department; and Claude
Ver Duin of Grand Haven.t

tells you to 'hurry, hurry' and then
you sit around waiting for them

Cole Urges Credit Immunity
For Fringe Benefits in Wages
Fringe benefits due wage earners should be paid in full and not
made subject to prior claims by creditors, according to Howard A. Cole,
legislative analyst at the University's Legislative Research Center.
Writing for the 1955-56 edition of "Current Trends in State
Legislation," scheduled for publication by the Center this fall, Cole
notes that nearly one-fifth of the nation's. payroll costs now go
toward pension plans, supplemental unemployment pay, and other
fringe benefit programs.
He believes that the social values of these plans would be greatly
impaired if creditors had a right to attack payments or employees
were able to borrow against future "
benefits for which they were eligi-
ble. Prof.
"Most of the kinds of benefitsr

Takes Many Classes
She also must take classes in
diction, horseback riding, English
and singing. "The studio wants
me to lose my accent, but not
quite," she said, smiling at the
incongruity. "And if you are late,
do they ever bawl you out!"
Although she seems to be tak-
ing life in America in her stride,
she expressed amazement at the
freedom American girls have.
"Girls are so independent here,"
she said, "and I like that, to a
certain extent."
In Ceylon, she explained, girls
are chaperoned whenever they go
out of their houses, even for a
walk or to school. Speaking of her
dates in the United States, she
said dating without chaperones
is "much more comfortable."
"However," she said seriously,
"many American girls take ad-
vantage of the great trust their
parents place on them. After a
couple of drinks girls act so silly;
I don't like it. If your parents trust
you so much, you should live up
to it."
Tax Bas,,e
Should Be
(Continued from Page 1)
tempts to diversify the tax base
have been fruitless.
And it is unlikely the city will
get a greater share of state-col-
lected, locally-shared taxes. Prof.
Brommae declares, "We have prob-
ably reached out peak now."
So the city has had to look else-
where for additional revenues.
Sewage utility rates have been
raised by 50 per cent to make
them self sustaining, the Univer-
sity has been approached frequent-
ly for additional payments and
miscellaneous fees and charges
have been increased.
But these are all small meas-
ures, insufficient for any long-
rang attempts to achieve financial
Larcom, asked what the city
plans to do, replies, 'We'll con-
sider the amusement tax again,
repeat attempts to get state auth-
orization to diversify the tax base
and continue to negotiate for in-
creased University aid.
Until the state comes through,
there is little likelihood the prob-
lem will be solved.

Many astronomers are sure
there is life on Mars. Great areas

On Sept. 7 Mars will be only

close as it came in 1924, and about
as close as it ever comes. It will
be five million miles nearer than
it came just two years ago.-
All summer and fall astrono-

Tantalizing because it is the
planet most like earth, though;
only half as big; because it is hard+
to see it clearly, save for fleeting
seconds, due to the shimmering of
our own window of air above us,
because it could be an early goal

Sandstone '
Study Project
A study of Lake Superior sand-
stone in the Upper Peninsula is
one of the current research pro-,
.ects of the University's geologyl
A cooperative project with the
Michigan Geological Survey, the
research involves aerial mapping
to determin the extent and distri-
bution of sandstone, and a detailed
study to establish its geologic his-
tory, the source of the sediments
and the nature of the surface on
which they were laid down.
The project is being conducted
by W. Kenneth Hamblin, a gradu-
ate student from Saline, under the
direction of Assoc, te Prof. Erwin
C. Stumm and Assistant Prof.
Louis I .Briggs.
Hamblin and Prof. Stumm plan
to spend a month this summer
searching for critical fossils in the
eastern part of the Upper Penin-

spring and spread toward the equa-
tor and even beyond. The general
guess is that it's plant life.
Even the existence of intelligent
beings is conceivable.
Astronomers do not find any
direct evidence that there is. Most
of the speculation concerning sen-
tient, intelligent Martians de-
volves from the elusive .markings
known as canals.
The canal mystery began nearly
80 years ago when an Italian
astronomer, Giovanni Schiaparelli,
using a small telescope, reported
seeing lines or markings which he
called Canali, meaning channels.
This was popularly interpreted
as canals, raising visions of Mar-
tians engineering great irrigation
feats to bring water from the poles
of oases or even underground
Canals Seen
Many other astronomers have
seen the canals, but still others,
including some devoting major
attention to planets, have never
been able to see them at all.
This doesn't mean they don't
exist. Good glimpses of Mars are
a chancy thing. Most of the time
Mars is on the other side of the
sun, out of sight. About every two
years its orbit brings it closes to
the earth, on the same side of
the sun, anywhere from 35 to 63
million miles away from earth.
Then for several months it is close
enough to study.
