Applications Have
All Been Rejected

Says Buckley, Manager;
Original Plan Was To
Admit Men Later On
With 52 women students pledged
to eat at the League Co-operative
Dining Room, and the success of the
plan practically assured, League offi-
cials are now faced with the problem
of permitting men students to take
advantage of the eating club.
Although approximately 35 men
have signified their desire to join the
club, all such applications have been
refused. Men students were to be
taken in as soon as the group was
organized, according to the original
plans, but due to objections from
other campus organizations, League
officials have refused all applications
from men.
Union officials object to men eat-
ing at the Co-operative Dining Room,
according to rumors, but Paul Buck-
ley, manager of the Union, said that
the matter was entirely up to the

Since the deferred tuition notes
now held by 547 students cannot be
legally due until the termination of
the bank holiday all action regard-
ing withdrawal of the students has
been temporarily forestalled.
University authorities revealed
yesterday that under the present
plan compulsory withdrawal will not
be enforced until after two weeks
of this semester have passed. This
fortnight delay is a result of the us-
ual policy of refunding forty per cent
of the tuition of a student withdraw-
ing before two weeks of the second
semester is passed.
Eighty-nine studients paid their
notes yesterday reducing the number
outstanding from last Monday's total
of 636. Checks are being received in
payment of the notes but receipts are
not final until the checks have been

The Student Committee which has
sponsored the eating club favors per-
mitting men to join. "We do not
want to compete in any way with
the Union,",said Sarah Bloom, '34,
chairman of the committee, "but if
the Union favors our plan, we prob-
ably will be able to get permission
from the Board of Governors to take
them in."
The 52 women who have already
joined the club made a down deposit
of $7, which will cover two weeks'
board. The club will continue for one
month, but unless additional mem-
bers are obtained by that time, it will
be discontinued. The original plan
called for a membership of 1OQ
women before meals could be served,
but because of delay in getting or-
ganized, the group was granted per-
mission to start with fewer members.
An active campaign is now under
way, and the Student Committee is
confident that 100 will be enrolled
before the end of the month.
Four women students are acting
as waitresses, for which they receive
their board, and as the enrollment
increases, additional waitresses will
be hired, Miss Bloom stated. A large
number of graduate students are
taking advantage of the Co-operative
Dining Room, the remainder of the
membership being composed of wom-
en from League houses.

With nearly 700 members of the
Michigan Traffic and Safety Direc-
tors' Association, the Michigan Asso-

Engineers, and the Michigan Good
Roads Association registered at the
Union early yesterday, the confer-
ence was officially opened by the ad-
dress of welcome by Dean Herbert C.
Sadler of the College of Engineering
at the opening meeting under the
direction of Prof. Roger L. Morrison,
of the highway engineering depart-
At the morning session yesterday,
papers on highway safety, accident
investigations, and railroad crossing
safety were heard.
Advocates Responsibility Plan
In concluding his address urging
the adoption of compulsory vehicle
insurance, Howard D. Brown, attor-
hey for the Automobile Club of Mich-
igan, investigated and explained the
assets and the disadvantages of the
present Massachusetts plan of in-
surance and the Ontario financial re-a
sponsibility plan, with the recom-1
mendation that the group favor such
a legislative plan as the "A. A. A.
Safety Responsibility Plan," This1
scheme provides that any driver con-..
victed on charges of reckless driving,
driving while intoxicated, or other
serious offenses shall have his driver's
license and registration certificate
suspended or revoked until he can
furnish proof of financial responsibil-
ity by putting up an insurance cer-
tificate, bond, or cash. It also pro-
vides that in case a judgment is ren-
dered against him, he must pay i
and furnish proof of financial re-
sponsibility before he can again drive
his car.
"Michigan has not yet acted upon
the plan," Mr. Brown stated. "An
A. A. A. bill wil be presented to the
legislature at the proper time and
after study. Our duty in the mattert
appears clear. Such a bill should be1
passed in Michigan," he said.
Would Remove Ditches
Elimination of ditches which fig-{
ured in 46 accidents in Washtenaw
county in 1931, and further educa-
tion of drivers were seen by Prof. W.
Sherman Smith of the civil engi-
neering department, University ofs
Toledo, as the outstanding needs in
accident prevention in Washtenawt
County. Basing his address on an ex-1
tended survey of local traffic condi-
tions, he said, "Few accidents arel
caused by road defects, so preventi-t
tive efforts can be more efficiently
directed to other causes. The mis-
judgment of the driver or his lack
of normal courtesy is largely re-{
sponsible for our highway accidents."

John S. Worley, of the transporta-t
