MINOR LARCENY ON A MAJOR SCALE: Manager Gerald Hoag of the Michigan Theater "tested" patrons' resistance to temptation in a light sort of way with a lobby display for a coming movie, "The Birds." He inserted an unlighted cigaret in the beak of the pasteboard bird and instructed an assistant to replace it as needed. Passersby on their way to the balcony helped themselves to 2 1/2 packs' worth in an afternoon.

SHIRLEY W. SMITH (Puts Foot Down) Shirley W. Smith, University vice-president emeritus and author of the story made into the motion picture "It Happens Every Spring," has put down his foot. He says he will sidestep plans to put his footprint in wet cement in front of the Michigan Theatre for a newsreel. Instead, Valentine Davies, 1927 U-M graduate and author of the movie script, will put his foot in it.
