Unlike private industrial con-

to submit "any information, derog-
atory or otherwise, available to
college and university officials or
included in the personnel records
of the college or university, that
will aid a military department
concerned in reaching a decision
as to whether a clearance should
be issued."

On Social Study
Prof. Erving Goffman of the
University of California at Berke-
ley will speak on "The Study of
Soiial Interaction" at 4:15 p.m.,
today in Aud. B. The lecture is
one in a series of colloquia spon-
sored by the psychology depart-.

Requests for clearance are sent
to the Central Contract Manage-
ment Region headquarters in Day-
ton where the decisions are made.
The Air Force Office of Special
Intelligence investigates appli-
cants. It can conduct two types
of probes - a national agency
check or a complete background
check - depending on the appli-
cant and the nature of the clear-
ance he requests, G. M. Crane of
the regional office explained.
The former- is a check of crim-
inal, subversive, military, immi-
grant alien, veterans or passport
records to find data on the appli-
All allegations are checked out,
a Detroit Federal Bureau of In-
vestigation agent said. "It is a
thorough, complete and objective
investigation," he declared.
"The FBI makes no evaluations
or recommendations. It lets the
facts stand where they are," the
agent declared.
Report Results
The results of the clearance ap-
plication are reported to the vice
president for academic affairs.
Clearances are only granted at
Dayton. Rejections are sent to
Washington, D. C. for considera-
tion by a defense department
hearing board.
The Air Force inspects top se-
cret projects every two months
and secret ones every four months.
Keeley said that the lack of a

The Detroit area is suffering
the worst air pollution in years,
Prof. Arthur J. Vorwald, chairman
of the Wayne State University in-
dustrial health department, said
Speaking at a seminar on lung
and heart diseases, Prof. Vorwald
noted that we are on the verge
of creating a hazardous and dan-
gerous situation for asthmatics,
for people with chronic bronchi-
tis, tuberculosis, lung cancer, heart

Students Meet
To Air Views
On Co-op Life
College students from through-
out the Middle West were on the
University campus last weekend
attending the Mid-west Co-op
Conference which met to discuss
the advantages and problems of
co-operative living.
Participating in the conference
were the University of Toronto,
Ohio State University, Western
Reserve University, Michigan
State University, and the Univer-
"The post war period has
brought about new roles in the
co-op" Hayes Beall, Education-
al Director of North American
student Co-op League, said. "The
role of the co-op today instills
democratic principles, the sharing
of work responsibilities, and ex-
periences in purposeful living to
the co-opers."
Members Responsible
"Co-ops are only as good as
its members," Mrs. Elizabeth Les-
lie of the Office of Student Af-
fairs, expressed. "Members select
the reasons for going the co-oper-
ative way. They should be respon-
sible to those in and outside of
"Successful co-ops are taken for
granted, the unsuccessful ones are
assumed to be typical," Wallace
Campbell of North American In-
surance in Columbus. Ohio and
vice-president of CARE, said. "The
co-op movement is the least un-
derstood in the United States.
Many successful co-ops are cred-
it unions, group health associa-
tions and CARE."
Workshop Meetings
Subjects under discussion at
workshops were house manage-
ment, personnel, group dynamics,
development and expansion, the
co-op movement, bookstores, food
buying, and the Rochdale Prin-
ciples of co-operative living.
Insthe final summary session of
the conference a resolution was
passed that the Federal Housing
Act be amended to include low
cost, low interest, long range
mortgages for student accommo-
dations under the cooperative sec-
tion of the act.
Schultz To Lecture
On Female Fish
R. Jack Schultz of the Univer-
sity museum will address a zo-
ology department seminar on
"Hybrid Combinations of an All-
Female Fish" at 4:00 p.m. today
in 1400 Chem.

gineering school's Meteorological
Laboratory said yesterday that the
air pollution is a result of a high
pressure area which did not move.
"Since Nov. 29, the Detroit area
has been near the center of a
high pressure area, where little
wind blows," he explained. When
air pollution is not dispersed by
winds, it tends to build up.
"The situation is clearing up,
because the high pressure area is
beginning to move off," he said.
Morton Sterling, chief of De-
i troit's Air Pollution Control Bu-
reau, agreed that present pollution
was bad-eight times normal. De-
troit usually benefits from cleans-
ing winds, he said, but there has
been little wind of late.
Relatively Safe
Detroit's relatively flat terrain
makes the area less susceptible to
the more severe pollution exper-
ienced in river valleys, where
smoke becomes trapped.
Two of the worst cases were in
Donora, Pa., and the valley of the
Meuse River in Belgium. A number
of people died when the air pollu-
tion got out of control, he added.
"When a stagnating high pres-
sure is forecast for an area, the
weather bureau sends out an air
pollution alert.
"If the warning is received, in-
dustry could conceivably shtit
down its more polluting opera-
tions," Harrington continued.
Views Legislation
"Michigan as a state has very
little air pollution legislation," he
commented. "Most of the ordi-
nances are originated by the cities
and townships in which the prob-
lem exists. These cities and town-
ships then exercise controls over
"But they do not want to scare
away industry with restrictions.
Also, the city or township suffer-
ing may not contain the cause of
the pollution.
"So the existing ordinances do
not always solve the pollution
problems," Harrington concluded.

"We should not want to train
ourselves to see it . . . even if it
were there, such a great bear, all
hung with stars, there still would
be no bear."
These are the closing words of
"The Great Bear," a poem by
Prof. John Hollander of Yale Uni-
versity, who read examples of his
work yesterday.
This particular poem, he said,
deals with the difficulty of apply-
ing the abstract principles taught
by others to the real situations
that each individual faces in his
life: "because there is no bear,
we blame the picture."
Tantalizing Mystery
Another poem, "The Whole
Story," deals with a tantalizing,
unexplained suggestion made by
Dr. Watson in a Sherlock Holmes
short story. It seems there is some
sort of mystery having to do with
a lighthouse, a politician, and a
trained cormorant.
"Race Rock Light" also con-
cerns a lighthouse, this one sur-
rounded by plantings which re-
mind Hollander of the garden of
Eden: "the scene of that original
dying dream." Now, the people
keep "whatever gardens they need
shut inside their own walls."
"Digging It Out," an evocation
of mood surrounding the effort of
digging an automobile out of
"sarcophagus mounds" of snow,
is, in Hollander's own terms, "a
little grim." "To call out some-
thing in this snow would be to
bury it h I don't want to have
to die, snow or no snow . . . a

"To the Lady Portrayed by Mar-
garet Dumont" is an elegy written
to a character in the Marx broth-
ers movies who was played by Miss
Dumont. In one of the movies,
Groucho Marx hurls invective at
the lady in question: "somebody
ought to tear you down and put
up a new building." In his poem,
Hollander hopes that she will be
borne "ever upward cloud by
cloud" to a "fierce green land of
mink and henna."
Another poem started as a di-
dactic for the instruction of a man
whom Hollander feels has the
wrong ideas about movie-making,
but it "got out of hand." Among
its rules are "stay for the second
feature on a double bill always-
it will teach you how to love," "do
not forget the old places, for every-
one's home has been a battle-
ground" and "finally, remember
always to honor the martyred
dead; the forces- of darkness
spread everywhere now."
Symbolic Treatment
"Humming" is a symbolic treat-
ment of the buzzing of the 17-year
cicada. After 17 years of dorman-
cy, these insects are "free to breed
for a week in the maple branches"
and then they die. The particular
incident of the poem is that of a
car driven suddenly into a swarm
of them and then out again:
"somehow a seventeenth season of
heat is always exploding in roses."
As the car emerges, Hollander
senses "the end of remembering
happening somewhere ahead in
the dust."
Two rabbis, each intent on his
own vision of life as a train car-
ries them over a plain "not gray,
not green" is the theme of "Two
Meditative Landscapes." The poem
involves a tragic joke. One rabbi
insists that whenever you drop a
piece of bread it always lands but-
ter side down. The other, an "em-
pirical" type, tries it; when he
disproves the contention his friend

cries "You fool, you're crazy, you
buttered the wrong side!" and the
empirical rabbi "wept, 'I know, I
know.' "
Hollander also read "Making It,"
"Riddle and Answer," and "Haly-
"Making It" was written while
Hollander was working on a longer
poem which he has not yet finish-
ed. "Making It" describes the dif-
ficulty of writing something that
"won't quite come." Hollander sees
this problem in terms of the muse
who, he feels, "will not help with
poems until I make love to her."
"Halycon" refers to a fountain
of wine that was to have inspired
poets. Hollander's poem of the
same name treats the literal sit-
uation of donating blood at a hos-
pital in symbolic relationship to
the mythical fountain.
Once, at Columbia University,
he discovered that a campus foun-
tain functioned with a closed water
system. He duly added sufficient
quantities of detergent and grape
juice to produce a reasonable fac-
simile of the fountain.
The poem megins "I mean some-
day to cry out against the cities
but first I must find the true ca-
dence," and ends "I have bled
since to many cadences . .. open-
ing up at all is harder than meet-
ing a measure."

titudes and actions Affecting
