Meet Sign
Signs opposed signs yesterday
as students picketed four Ann
Arbor stores for the 10th and last
time of the semester.
Having previously decided to
picket for only an hour, the dem-
onstrators began at 2 p.m. At
about 2:40 p.m. the manager of
the campus outlet of the S. S.
Kresge Co. posted two signs in
windows of his store.
One said, "Picketinghis unfair
to the integration policy and pub-
lic record of this store." The other
made of a long role'of white paper
with the words "Our National
Policy" had an arrow pointing to
two newspaper articles.
Unfair Pickets
Underlined In one was, "Ac-
knowledging that boycotts and
picketing of stores in the North
affected business," Kresge's Pres-
ident said, "We believe there is an
element of unfairness in picket-
ing and boycotting our Northern
units, where everyone knows we
have no segregation, to pressure
us into forcing our Southern
stores to break local laws and
Shortly afterward, at 3 p.m.,
the picketers having walked for
their hour disbanded and left.
Not Influenced
John Ladinsky, Grad., said "Our
policy to stop picketing was in no
way influenced by the putting up
of these signs. We are encouraged
to know that the picketing has
had some effect on the national
Kresges and hope it will influence
a change in policy."
Robert Maten, manager of the
campus outlet of Kresge, said that
as far as he knew the local pick-
eting had not affected the busi-
ness of the store. "Of course," he
added, "it has given us a lot of
free advertising."
Ladinsky said that, "Ninety per
cent of our personnel are students
whose primary purpose is educa-
tion and we do not intend to in-
terfere with their academic grades
by cutting into study for finals.
We have been picketing for 10
consecutive weeks, and the group
believed that one hour would be
sufficient on this 10th Saturday."
Exams Stop Pickets
He said that the groups also de-
cided on Friday not to picket next
Saturday because of the pressure
of exams. If enough interest is
shown it might be reinstated.
However, a seven-man steering
group was appointed to continue
the picketing over the summer.
"The less break there is, the bet-
ter off we are."
"Though we have been pri-
marily a student group, many
town people have shown interest
in our organization and in picket-
ing. It is hoped that more town
people will take part during the
summer," Ladinsky said.
The 30 demonstrators picketed
outside of the Cousins Shop, and
at the local branches of F. W.
Woolworth and Kresge whose
southern outlets allegedly prac-
tice Negro segregation.
As in the past several weeks,
there was no interference from
the local police.








App lic ation s






Seen Crucial
By Romney
LANSING WP)-George Romney,.
Chairman of the "Citizens For
Michigan," yesterday tied the fu-
ture of his group directly to the
success or failure of the League
of Women Voters-Junion Cham-
ber of Commerce petition drive
for a constitutional convention.
"If we should fail in the drive
to get petitions to put the consti-
tutional convention proposal on
the ballot, it will be the " death
knell for the Citizens For Michi-
gan organization," Romney said.
The group announced it would
put petitions in the hands of its
some 4,400 members and urge
them to get signatures to put the
proposal on the ballot.
Opponents Extreme
Romney, President of American
Motors, termed opponents of a
constitutional convention "ex-
tremists at both ends."
"There are those who oppose a
change completely and those who
would change it only, with a
stacked convention," he said.-
Earlier, Romney told about 200
delegates that "the sabotage of
the summit meeting can well be,
the 1960's Pearl Harbor and serve
to unify Americans throughout
the nation."
Closer Scrutiny
"This week's explosion at the
summit means that America and
its institutions will be under even
more intensive scrutiny through-
out the world than ever before,"
Romney said.
"It has been made clear that
the Communists are embarking
on a new campaign to discredit
our system of government," he
Romney said whether the Paris
fiasco turns out to be a blessing
or a tragedy will depend on the
response it provokes from Ameri-
can citizens.
Western Decline
"Should citizen apathy become
as widespread throughout the na-
tion as it has been in Michigan in
recent years as the result of indi-
viduals forfeiting their political
power, then the decline of the
West will be more than just a fig-
ure of speech," he said.
The non-partisan organization
is high-lighting its drive toward
a July 8 deadline with this general
membership meeting. This is the
date when petitions for a conven-
tion to be placed on the November
ballot must be submitted to the

Test Plan To Meet Disasters

Lewis Sees


At 9:20 a.m. yesterday an imag-
inary explosion set in motion the
first full-scale test of the Univer-
sity Medical Center's disaster
Forty-seven casualties, volun-
teers from several fraternities and
sororities, were "found" at the
disaster area. across the street
from. the Hill's tennis courts.
Medical Center doctors had
coached the volunteers before the
test began, telling them what
symptoms to report, and how to
act. The victims displayed wounds
of various sorts applied in grease
paint by members of a speech de-
partment theatrical m a k e - u p
Civil Defense station wagons
carried the victims to the hos-
pital, where doctors s c r e e n e d
them, had them registered, and
then sent them to the various de-
partments for treatment.
Early Casualties
Casualties began arriving 30
minutes after the mock explosion,
and all were inside the hospital
within 12 minutes of the earliest
Over a hundred doctors, and
fifty nurses, were available to
treat them. On hand were band-
ages, oxygen, and facilities for
blood transfusions and other
emergency measures.
Several observers carefully re-
corded all delays in the exercise,
which was designed to discover
shortcomings in the disaster plan.
The results will be analized, and
reported later this week.
The disaster plan has had only
one prior test, a year ago, when
reports of a severe windstorm
caused the hospital to mobilize
the first stage of its program.
Other Problems
Apparent while the exercise was
proceeding was a shortage of
stretcher bearers. Physicians were
forced to carry some of the vic-
tims themselves. The stretchers'
also proved too long for the ele-
vators, so that only one could fit
in at a time. Other complaints
concerned patients assigned to
the wrong department, or left
somewhere without treatment.
One casualty, seemingly aband-
oned, confided that he was a
transverse myelitis. "I'm in ag-
ony," he pleaded. "My legs are
numb." Discovered later, he was
sent down for X-rays.
Jet planes from Selfridge Air
Force Base were 'scheduled to fly
low over the Medical Center, to
add to the "realism," but at 10:40,
when all victims had received,
treatment and were identified,
they had not yet appeared.

Deadline Approaches
With the $50 acceptance de-
posits deadline only two days away,
the admissions office had received
2,500 deposits by yesterday.
"We expect at least 500 by Mon-
day," Lewis said, which will raise
the prospective freshman class
close to the 3,011 which the ad-
missions office hopes to have by'
summer.2This would leave approx-
imately 200 places to fil by fall.

increase of more than 100 over last
year's class, which numbered 3,166.

6-3, 6-2. Hibben eliminated Wiley
by identical scores.
Lockhart handed Jim Tenney
his first loss since the spring trip

tionally well in defeating Wolver-
ine Bill Vogt 6-3, 6-2.
Tenney and Wiley had been un-

of the tournament, Al Fraser and
Jerry Rotter of Wisconsin 6-3, 6-4.

MacDonald overwhelmed Steve
Bard of Northwestern 6-2, 6-1.
The stocky junior went undefeated
after the spring trip. Aggressive
and powerful, he simply had too
much for Bard.j
Hibben Surprised
Wiley was surprised by Hibben
who displayed a strong service. In
a meet last week against North-
western Wiley had no trouble
with Hibben.
Tenney went down to Wildcat
Sophomore Lockhart in the battle
of opposites. Lockhart, an ener-
getic 5'8" and 127 pounds, plays
driving aggressive tennis, making
many mistakes but making more
spectacular shots.
Tenney, a bit taller and 35
pounds heavier, is very hesitant
to rush the net. He plays back by
the base line and returns every-
thing with the same easy motion.
Last week he sucessfully used his
tactics to easily down Lockhart
but yesterday he could not cope
with Lockhart's array of shots.

EAST LANSING-Led by an unbeatable George Kerr, Illinois
overwhelmed nine opponents and won its third outdoor Big Ten track
title in a row yesterday.
Illinois fell four points behind its winning total of last year, but
since Michigan could only manage another 45 point score, it had a
handy margin.
The Illini marked up six first places against five by Michigan,
two by Ohio State and one by Minnesota in the 14 event program.
Enjoying the best day of his career, Kerr took first places in the
440 and 880 within 30 minutes, and ran a sensational final leg on the
winning mile relay team. His time of :46.1 for the quarter was the
fastest in the United States this year and second fastest in the world
this season.
Despite Tom Robinson's two wins, but missing the first-place
powers of Bennie McRae, the Wolverines were well behind the team
champions as they could not summon the second and third place sup-
rnot whih was+ theirs in thindnr meet.
