marquees on New York's famous
thoroughfare, but a few of the
older ones still remain.
Stage productions top the list,
the first offering is "Camelot,"
the new smash hit by Alan Jay
Lerner and Frederick Loewe, which
is billed as the "most beautiful
show in the world," and is sold
out until April. it's playing at the
Majestic Theatre.
New Offerings
On the available list there are
other nlew offerings. Sir Laurence
Oliver is back stateside to star

Just off Broadway to theĀ° Royale

of their existence was the reason
for epnsidering establishment of

By WILFRED ROY
The blood drive to raise funds
for the Negroes of Fayette County,
Tenn. ended last night with a
slow-but-steady stream of last-
minute donors, Mary Wheeler, '61,_
member of the Human Relations
Board, said.
A total of 45 people donated, but
the exact proceeds of the two-
day drive are not known as yet,
because hospitals pay a varying
rate for each blood type. They
should approximate $400.
Approximately 20 others volun-
teered, but could not donate for
health reasons, Miss Wheeler said.
The drive also received cash
donations totaling more than $50.
These will be sent with the check
from the blood bank to the New
York office of the Congress of
Racial Equality, with specific in-
structions on how the money is
to be spent.
The Blood for Fayette County
Committee will decide what is to
be purchased, but CORE will see
it is sent, committee chairman
Judith Yesner, Grad., said last
night.
Propose AEC
Reorganize
In a paper prepared for delivery
at the Atomic Industrial Forum
yesterday in San Francisco, Prof.
William H. Berman and Prof. Lee
M. Hydeman, co-directors of the
Law School's Atomic Energy Re-
search Project, said the Atomic
Energy Commission should be split
into two separate agencies.
One agency, called the Atomic
Energy Administration, would con-
duct the AEC's operational and
promotional functions in nuclear
development.
The other, called the Atomic
Energy Board, would be responsi-
ble for safety regulations.
Berman and Hydeman, who for-
merly work for AEC, say splitting
the organization would permit in-
dustry to benefit from a regula-
tory system that is not "unduly
burdensome."

The 10 member BFFC committee
is an aggragate of representatives
from the Human Relations Board
and the campus chapter of the
NAACP who are working in con-
junction with the Ann Arbor,
Direct Action Committee, the cam-
pus CORE affiliate, in sponsoring
the blood bank.
