possibility of displacing native un-

The demand for June college

The total number of firms con-

Insurance companies a g a i n

lowed by manufacturing industries

In the field of specialists, account-
ants and economic majors were
in the greatest demand.
Monthly 'salaries are averaging
from $375 to $500 for bachelors
degree graduates, $435 to $525 for
masters degrees, and doctor's sal-

Sring Plans
The Union Executive Council
met with its new membership last
night to work out plans for spring
Union activities.
Michael Balgley, '62, announced
that a second plane has been se-
cured for the Airflight to Europe
this summer, and that priority
will be given to those already on
the waiting list.
Balgley's committee is also set-
ting up a Parliamentary Proced-
ure Workshop, in conjunction with
the Speech Department, to
acquaint leaders of campus or-
ganizations with this organiza-

For Michigan Region
The action taken by the
Michigan Region of the Na-
tional Students Association op-
posing picketing of branch
stores which do not themselves
discriminate must be considered
in the context of the entire
resolution embodying it.
The resolution encourages
member schools of the Michigan
Region to oppose discrimination
by any fair and just means
available. It was the feeling of
the group that the picketing of
the northern branches of Kres-
ges, Woolworths, et al-when
these branches do not them-
selves discriminate-is not such
a fair and just means.
We interpret picketing in the
South to be a protest against
the custom of the South; stores,
operating in these communities
--and in fact in any community
--are guests of such commu-
nities and as such are bound by
the community's customs, and
Therefore, Southern stores
are picketed not as entities un-
to themselves but as entities
operating in the Southern com-
munity and as representatives
of that community's customs.
In the North, these stores
seem to follow the custom of
'serving all customers who can
pay for their services. This be-
ing the case, they do not ad-

which is being objected to, But
picketing of them subjects-them
to the same penalties as those
stores being picketed which
operated under the objection-
able "Southern" custom. Thus
they cannot fairly be boycotted.
Encouragement and aid must
be given to the Southern Negro
or any minority group who are
regarded by some bigots as sub-
human. However, aid to the
S outhern Negro must be given
more directly than picketing the
Northern counterpart of a

There are many such means:
sending money, providing legal
aid to defend Southern Negroes
and to combat the rash of ex
post facto laws now being pass-
ed in the South, finding shelter
and jobs for those forced to flee
from their homes, stronger Civil
Rights legislation should 'be
fought for, Southern governors
should be-informed of our posi-
tion-even demonstrations may
be held if they are not directed
at a Northern scapegoat for a
"Southern" offence.
All of these means must be
employed to fight injustice. But
in so fighting, we must avoid
sinking to the use of injustice
to fight injustice. And so, pick-
eting of Northern stores which
do not themselves discriminate
must be put aside in favor of
other means to combat dis-
