Floyd McCann, Trovet president, told the group about the scholarship fund, which benefits children of servicemen killed in World War IL The goal of this year's drive is $20,000. McCann said that if each student can give at least $1, the goal will be reached. The meeting was also concerned with the progress ot work on the LAS homecoming float. Vick Knight, homecoming chairman for LAS, reported that the float is al ready underway. Knight was unable to obtain an enclosed place to build the float, so it will be constructed in the Phi Sig backyard. Members of the council will begin serving three-hour work stints on the float-building project this week. ASSC Incorporation Viewed By Leaders Student leaders yesterday eyed with caution the proposal to incorporate the ASSC. A resolution to investigate the possibilities of chartering the ASSC as a non-profit corporation was passed at the last senate meetng. Art Wexler, senator-at-large and initiator of the move said, “The power to initiate money-making projects and spend this money as it saw fit along with other benefits would be obtained by the ASSC through incorporation.” Wiggins and Interfraternity President Cal Schmidt would not express approval or disapproval of the plan. “Everything hinges on the charter of incorporation as far as I am concerned,” Wiggins said. He went on to express approval of the present student government and its finances adding that “it ranks with the best in the country.” Elton D. Phillips, university business manager, would not comment on ny aspects of the proposed incorporation. It is a university matter that should be cleared with Dean Hyink and the administration, he said. Delta Sigs Sleep While Burglars Creep Delta Sigma Phi fraternity members slept so soundly Sunday night after a dinner dance, that they did not notice the burglar, or burglars, that entered two upstairs boarding rooms and took five wallets containing $45. One hundred and fifty guests of the Delta Sig members attended the family dinner Sunday night featuring Jack Crawford and his combo. The prowlers passed up trumpets, diamond rings, and other items valued at $1500. Fraternity member Gordon Munsford said the men would appreciate the return of the wallets even if they are empty. 1920 s Will Return For Flapper Roaring 20s To Live Again November 30 Flapper day, the annual student trip into the past, will be held Thursday, Nov. 30.

Police reported at 8:30 p.m. (EST; that 40 persons were believed trapped in the blast, but on arrival at the scene, eight miles northeast of Detroit's downtown busmess district, they found that only - nine were in the tunnel at the time of the explosion. “We didn't have any trouble getting to them,” a policeman said. The six victims, burned by fire that followed the initial blast, were rushed to Receiving hospital. Two were reported in serious condition No one was killed. One of the most seriously injured was identified as Jack Ag-new, a civil engineer employed by the city. Workmen said Agnew had been in the tunnel most of the day to try to find the source of methane (marsh) gas that had been seeping into the structure. The workers had just returned from their evenlig lunch hour, they said, and were standing in the compressing chamber where air pressure is gradually increased to the 20 pounds per square inch under which they must work. “Someone was using an air spade at the mouth of the tunnel,” William R. Harper of Charleston, W. Va.. said. “I guess friction must have touched off the marsh gas that had been bothering us all day. “First I saw a ball of fire rolling right down the tunnel toward us and then I heard the explosion. “When the echo died down I could hear men screaming and I >aw two men standing in the mouth of the tunnel. Then they crumpled to the ground. I think .they were burned pretty badly. “I was knocked doyn, but I don’t I was hurt much. I didn't get burned like they did.” DAN SCHIAVONE . prelim judge Know-it-all Booklet Ready ★ ★ ★ ★ New Directory Mailec The new Campus directory, containing the telephone numbers of more than 1000 faculty members and employees, was completed .ast week and is being mailed to the various university offices. The work of collecting and compiling the information in the directory was begun in July, according to Mrs. Anna Tandler, assistant editor of university publications. “It is* a small book, but it represents » unnumbered man-hours of labor,” said Mrs. Tandler. The directory is divided into ^three parts, the first listing the *m Pribilof islands in the Bering sea, of which St. Paul is a part, Dr. Pettengill said, and it is only recently that they have let visitors come to the islands without permission. About 3 million seals visit the islands during the three month breeding season. Where they go afterward is still a mystery, he said. Dr. Pettengill will narrate his film and then show a 10-minute sound film, “Sanctuary of the Seals.” This film shows the amusing habits and antics of the seals on the islands. The films are the third in a series being presented on Alaska by the institute. Students and faculty are invited and there is no charge for admission. Turkey to Get Downey Out; Cook s Tour Quits Post An international Thanksgiving dinner will be held at the University of Texas Thursday.

In addition to the campus in formation, home addresses and telephone numbers are listed. An asterik in front of a name indicates that the faculty member or university employee is married. This innovation is designed to facilitate propei addressing of invitations and other correspondence, said Mrs. Tandler. A new method of collecting the information was used for the directory, according to Mrs. Tandler. The office of the educational vice-president supplied cards for faculty, while the office of the financial vice-president provided cards for the business staff. These were then sent to the various departments for titles, addresses, and telephone numbers, she said.

The assembly rejected Russia’s latest “peace” package, with its key demand that the Chinese Com- select group of about 150 scientists who “know all about the bomb,” and said his confessed treachery was “very, very disturbing” to U.S. atomic officials. Dean disclosed the grave damage done by the Fuchs spy ring in a copyrighted interview with the weekly news magazine, U.S. News and World Report. He indicated that the commission now considers some of its secrecy precautions obsolete and plans to ask Congress next year to modify the law. In this connection, he said the time is coming when it will be quite permissible from a security standpoint to publish photographs of the A-bomb, or even “put a dummy model in Macy’s window.” In .forthright answers to a wide range of questions on which atomic officials previously have been evasive, Dean also revealed that: The U.S. stockpile of A-bombs is widely dispersed in order to minimize the dangers of enemy sabotage. Completed bombs remain in the Tommy Needs Student Talent Only three students, two singers and a comedian, have seen Tommy Walker about talent auditions in his week-long campaign to get student talent for television shows. Walker is still campaigning to have a complete catalogue of 100 talented students for such television programs as NTG show, Gridiron club, Peter Potter program, and many others. He is looking for magicians, jugglers, dancing teams, comedians, tumblers, vocal groups, instrumentalists, or anyone with any kind of specialty act. “We are able to give students opportunities that would be quite difficult for them to get by themselves,” Walker said, “yet students don’t seem to take advantage of them. We could also use these students for half-time basketball entertainment,” he said. Walker can be seen at the office of development, Administration building, 9-11 today and 9-12 tomorrow. Next week he will be there from 9-12 daily. Students who are unable to see him during that time may call him at extension 528 or 529. a nine-nation resolution that applauded his initiative, called on “appropriate” UN organs to con-:sider possible action on its 10 points, and asked for “progress'’!---—--- j reports by next fall’s assembly.

College Classes by Television Posed As Future Possibility Future college curriculums may include classes by television if present student interest at William and Mary college is any indication. A huge TV set, with a three by “technical custody” of the civilian two-and-a-half foot screen, was incommission, but the practical ar- rangements are such that there would be “no delay” in turning them over to the military in time of war. Bomber crews assigned to deliver the atom bomb if war should come are specially trained because ordinary plane crews would not understand how to handle the A-bomb.
