composed of Dr. Harry Shipman and Rev. Curtis Crawford, Wendejl Hulcher, Harry Swan, Rev. C.
H. Loucks, Richard D. Blodgett and Prof. Leslie Kish of the sociology department.
Sees Weaponry As End to War

The Alice Lloyd Hall inter-dormitory council will hold a discus-
sion on dress regulation changes tomorrow evening with Assistant
Deans of Women Elsie R. Fuller and Catherina Bergeon participating.
The council has been attempting to change dress rulings since
last fall, when a committee of Alice loyd residents, headed by Elaine
Wender, '63, agreed to request permission to wear slacks to breakfast

The basic revolution in weaponry
"gives us the first opportunity in
history to abolish the institution
of war, because governments now
realize it is suicidal," the Rev.
Curtis Crawford said last night.
However, he stressed the ineviti-
Fire Called-
The fire in East Quadrangle
Friday night was an attempt at
malicious destruction, the Ann Ar-
bor police department said last
"The fire was probably lighted
by someone, because a package of
matches was found near the
scene of the fire," John H. Taylor,
resident director of East Quad-
rangle, said.
The East Quadrangle house-
keeper, Mrs. Edith A. Jayne, noted
that the laundry carts which fire-
men found ablaze had been moved
from the basement where she
normally stores them into a sub-
basement tunnel during the night.
This tunnel is approximately 20
yards from a room where firewood,
used in, Quadrangle fireplaces, is

papers in a stairwell'between the
third and fourth floors of the
quadrangle, Assistant Fire Chief

An anonymous phone call re-
ceived by the police implicated one
student as the cause of the fire.
The office of the Dean of Men
and the Ann Arbor police depart-
ment are continuing their investi-

bility of nuclear war if the arms
race is continued. Although power-
ful arms deter surprise attack,
they cannot prevent a war precipi-
tated by accident, desperation or
insanity, he said.
About 12 nations now have the
economic, scientific and techno-
logical resources to produce nu-
clear weapons. The greater the
number of people able to destroy
the world, the more likely it is that
the destruction will come Mr.
Crawford said.
Lectures for UN
Mr. Crawford is a Unitarian
minister who lectures on disarma-
ment and international affairs for
the United Nations Speakers Serv-
ices, the National Committee for

a Sane Nuclear Policy and the{
Foreign Policy Association.
Mr. Crawford said that the aver-
age American, regardless of what
he may say, prefers the arms race
because for the time being it pro-
vides peace and prosperity.
Preceding Crawford's speech, Dr.
Harry Shipman, the Ann Arbor
Civil Defense director, described
the city plan for civilian protec-
tion not only against bombs, but
tornadoes and floods.
After the speech, City Council-
man Wendell Hulcher, Harry
Swan, the Rev. C. H. Loucks,
Richard D. Blodgett representing
the service clubs, and Prof. Leslie
Kish of the sociology department
discussed disarmament.

Dean Bacon Backs Plan

certain difficulties, Miss Bacon
noted. "Since 80 per cent of for-
eign students are both male and &.
graduate students, the house would
have no regulations, no hours and
no social structure.
Open to Seniors
"This means that it would "not
have very many undergraduate
women living there-in fact, it
wuold probably be limited - to se-
lected, qualified seniors."
James M. Davis, director of the
International Center, said that he
would like to see either a coedu-
cational graduate unit or interna-
tional- facility.
The graduate unit, including fa-
cilities which would fulfill the
needs of "mature" (not necessarily
graduate) foreign students, will
soon be recommended by the In- .

Walker, Denver Bomb Pucksters, 6-2
Associate Sports Editor
It was "Jerry Walker Night" at the Michigan Coliseum' last night
and the 3788 fans who saw Denver bounce the Wolverines for the
second straight time, 6-2, won't forget the show.
All the senior wing for Murry Armstrong's Pioneers did was tally
four of the visitor's goals as Denver continued on its merry way
toward another national championship.
Walker led Denver to its 15th win in 16 Western Collegiate
Hockey Association outings by scoring twice in both the opening
and final periods of the game.
And he isn't even a professional prospect!
That's the word from Montreal Canadian talent scout Ken
Rearden who watched the weekend series-his introduction to college

Miss Bacon is very much against
the plan for an international
facility. "As far as I can see, it's
just high class segregation," she
said. "Foreign students have noth-
ing in common except the fact
that they are not American."

will be all or mostly foreign stu-
dents would ge "going the wrong
