Do What? The management of the Wuerth Theater which posted this suggestion on the marquee didn't really mean that people should go to East Lansing to see movies, even though at first glance it might appear so. What the management undoubtedly means is that it would like to have people patronize the Michigan, the State, and the new Campus Theaters. The latter will open tomorrow. Pictures of it are on page 32.
