Ailei-Rnimsey Costs

Results in a poll covering more1
than 50 campuses scattered through-
out the nation indicate that in three-
quarters of the college dormitories
have provided relief for intolerable
living conditions.
All of the universities in which dor-
mitories have been tried report the
dormitories superior to private room-
ing houses although in two cases fi-
nancial troubles have been exper-
Returns from a greater number of,
these schools indicate that, respond-
ing to the same problem facing the
University, high costs to the students
and inadequate conditions, they have
found dormitories to be a compara-
tively cheap and successful way to'
improve standards and cut rents.
A letter from Iowa State Universi-
ty declares: "We have found the cost
of rooms in the town keep pretty close
to the cost of rooms in our dormitory..
Therefore, our dormitoriy has decid-
edly helped us to check the increase*
of room rents in town. The price of
dormitory accommodations at Iowa'
State is-$27 per month for room and'
board and the units have been built
through bond issues.
Another letter reads: The tendency
upon the part of the homeowners has
been to increase the charge for rent,
rather materially during the past few,
years. There seems to be no correla-
tion whatsoever between the price
and the quality of the rooms.
In general the poll revealed that
dormitories offering more, charged
considerably less than rooming
houses. The average dormitory price
was three dollars a week and the
average dormitory cost per student
was in the neighborhood of $1.250 -

The appearance of Archbishop Ed-
ward Mooney of the Detroit arch-
diocese of the Catholic church before
the Newman Club at a breakfast Sun-
day morning will be his first visit to
Ann Arbor since his appointment to
the Detroit diocese.
I-ls career in the church includes
some very unusual honors. He was
the first American to become an
apostolic delegate. In 1926 he was
sent as apostolic delegate to India
with the rank of titular bishop of
Irenopolis. He remained there five
Archbishop - Mooney studied the-
ology at the North American College
in Rome where lie was ordained. He
received the degrees of Ph.D. and
STD. In 1923 he was appointed spin-'
tual director of the North American
College, a position similar to the one
which the Rev. Fr. Allen Babcock,
former chaplain of Ct. Mary's Student
Chapel, now holds at the college..
The Newman Club has arranged
for his address here so that the stu-
dents may become acquainted with
him. The Club is an organization of
Catholic students on campus. The
students will attend mass at the
chapel at 8 a.m. with the Rev. Fr.

Higher Wages,

Declares 'Selfish' Minority
Holds Back Widespread
Prosperity In Country
GAINESVILLE, Ga., March 23.---
(I)--President Roosevelt, striking at
feudalism, fascism and communism,
spoke out for higher wages in this
southern industrial center today in
tones that surprised many of his
He told an outdoor throng that
Gainesville's resurrection from the
ruins of a tornado two years ago was
an example of self-help for the na-
tion to follow and that only a "sel-
fish" minority was holding back .na-
tion-wide prosperity.
Then. in phrases that caused some
national legislators who have op-
posed his wage-hour proposals pri-
vately to express surprise, he assert-
ed almost defiantly:
"Georgia and the lower south may
ijust as well face facts--simple facts'
presented in the lower south by the
President of the United States. The
purchasing power of the millions of
Americans in this whole area is far
too low. Most. men and women who
work for wages in this whole area get
wages which are far too low."
The audience that massed in two
squares named after him for his help
in assisting the mill city of 10,000
to rebuild after the tornado killed
more than 200 and destroyed many
of its buildings and homes, listened
in silence as he assailed the South's
low wage levels.
But scattered handelapping and
whistling greeted his declaration that
-'we are iot going back to the old
days" and his emphatic interpola-
tion: "I am opposed to fascism as I
am opposed to communism."

But AdmitDesirability

Power Of Removal
WASHINGTON, March 23.-(P.)-
President Roosevelt's removal of Dr.
Arthur E. Morgan from the chair-
manship of TVA stirred up a tempest
in Congress today and produced more
emphatic demands for a thorough
investigation of the power agency.
Demos atic objections, however,
blocked two efforts in the Senate to
set an inquiry going immediately, al-
though one of the objectors, Senator
Barkley (Dem., Ky.), the majority
leader, asserted there was no question
of "the desirability" of such an inves-
Message Increases Controversy
A message to Congress in which
President Roosevelt cited reasons for
dismissing Dr. Morgan served only
to increase the controversy. For it
vas accompanied by an opinion from
Solicitor General Robert H. Jackson,
asserting the President was vested
with authority to remove members of
the TVA board from office.
This proved a highly disputed
point. Critics of TVA were quick to
contend the Supreme Court had de-
clared the President powerless to
take such action. Others argued
that the Tribunal, while preventing
presidential removal of certain offi-
cials with quasi-judicial authority,
left him free to dismiss officers like
Bridges Demands Investigation
The Senate had hardly convened
when Senator Bridges (Rep., N.H.)
was on his feet with a demand for
immediate consideration of his res-
olution -for a joint congressional in-
vestigation of TVA. Barkley objected,
asserting that the inquiry should not
be conducted by "partial investigat-

an attorney today but declined to

head of the TVA conferred with Ed-

Arthur Klein, '39, will play the lead-
ing role of Gustov Heink, a temper-

The play is a light eomedy depict-
ing the troubles of a handsome
Viennese pianist, frequently led into
complications, and who is rescued by
his very intelligent wife.
The plot is in the nature of a les-
