Platt said the "bottom seeme
to drop out of things" after the
former department head, Paul D
Bagwell, left to campaign for gov
ernor last summer.
Bagwell resigned as head of the
communication skills departmen

The original reports to the AAUP
from present faculty members at
MSU said Bagwell's plans for
strengthening the curriculum were
discarded after months of work by
a faculty committee.
Dean Edward Carlin said last
week that changes ordered by
Blackman as the new department
head were going through long es-
tablished procedures and will not
become effective until approved by
the academic senate.

SNOW PLOW-To aid in keeping the streets clear of snow, each of the trucks is equipped with a
salt spreader and a snow plow. If the salt is not effective in keeping snow off the streets, or if the
snow is especially heavy and accumulates to any extent, the trucks begin to plow. Since the trucks
have been equipped with the plows, it has just been a matter of waiting for snow.
City Ready To Cope with Snow Problems
By JOHN RICKEL
Keeping the streets clear of
snow, or at least navigable,
throughout the winter season in
Ann Arbor is the problem of the
Department of Public Works.
The winter started early for
Ann Arbor this year, but the De-
partment has been ready for snow
since .the first of November, Er-
win Carbeck, assistant superin-'
tendent of public works, reported.
The snow flurries expected during
the next few days will be just
routine, as were the four inches
that fell last week.
Department Begins Work
To prepare for the onslaught of
winter, the thirteen municipal
trucks which the street depart-
ment uses were equipped with
wider track plows last month,,
Carbeck said. Since then it has
just been a matter of waiting for
tion practically at

the moment lines are plowed and salted as
snow starts to fall. Each of the!
municipal trucks is quickly
equipped with a salt spreader and
sent on its route around the city,
Carbeck noted. Initially, the main
streets and steep hills are covered.
If the salt is not effective in
keeping snow off the streets, or
if the snow is especially heavy and
accumulates. to any extent, the
trucks begin to plow, Carbeck
In residential areas the plows
do not spread salt over the en-
tire street, but "spot salt" at in-
tersections and steep hillside
roads, he remarked. Although
residential sections are usually
not plowed more than once a
much as six times a day in heavy
City, University Clear
He said that in a 24-hour period
the city trucks can cover the en-
tire 135 miles of paved and gravel
roads. This figure includes all of
the city streets with the excep-
tion of a few roads on University-
owned land, which the University
clears itself, Carbeck noted.
Sidewalk clearance is not a part
of the Department of Public
Works' responsibilities, he de-
clared. The Ann Arbor Depart-
ment of Parks has charge of
clearing sidewalks in front of city
property, while the University
clears campus walks.

Of Red China
No wishing on the part of the
United States can return Nation-
alist China to power, Prof. Mary
C. Wright of Stanford University
Prof. Wright, an expert on Far
Eastern affairs, spoke on the
"University of Michigan Hour."
Her topic was "China: The Dragon
and the Star."
"We will have to recognize Red
China at some time in the future
-it is inevitable. But the question
seems to be when," she added.
Cites Main Barrier
The main barrier to recognition
of Red China by the United States
is the American legal approach to
a problem, Prof. Wright declared.
Since the China problem is some-
thing new to our way of think-
ing, we can't cope with it, she
"The victory by Communist
forces should have been proof to
us that Chiang Kai-shek and his
party had been rejected by China's
people," she said. "We have not
shown the capacity to realize that
history does change and that we
must change with it."
Most Americans have shown a
strong emotional attachment to
Chiang Kai-Shek's government on
F'ormosa, but have not shown the
same feeling towards our former
ally, Iraq. "The young king was
killed and the government over-
thrown less than a year ago, she
continued. "It's shocking that
we've all 'but forgotten about it."
The 10-week series is now in its
ninth week. Other guests have
been Prof. Robert Ward of the
political science department, and
Prof. James Crump of the Far
Eastern Languages and Litera-
