another vocalization.
James Doll, art director and sup-
ervisor of the Detroit Federal The-
atre, brought to Ann Arbor for thi
play, has designed the scenery, hun-
dreds of costume articles, and 30 full
costumes. He selected Elizabethar
costumes, rather than the Italiante
or medieval deigns which woulc
seem more appropriate to the set-

is more suitable to the imagery, mo-
tivation, and verse of the play.

but we elected the Senate to be the
students' representative for bettering
campus conditions. I, for one, feel
that there are plenty of possibilities
for improvement right here on cam-
pus without wandering far afield in
search of topics for debate.
Should I be elected, I will do my
best to bring Student Senate in-
fluence to bear on immediate campus
questions. May I add that I shall wel-
come any student at any time to give
me his reactions and opinions on any

We firmly believe in the prime re-
quisites of a good and efficient gov-
ernment, namely:
1. An attraction in our public serv-
ice for men of fine caliber, with a
high sense of duty--men who are re-
sponsible, not to a political machine,
but to a well-informed, highly inter-
ested and critical electorate.
2. An electorate that assumes a
civic responsibility with "the right
to vote."
We maintain that an embargo on
arms must prevent shipments of arms
to all nations in order to be effective.
We hold that academic freedom is
highly desirable. However, we insist
:hat any enactment, granting aca-
demic freedom, must also contain pro-
visions, adequately dealing with the
abuse of this right.
Let us all unite against any at-
tempt bymen to blind society with
passions and emotions--greed, hatred,
intolerance and bias. We insist that

society provide a proper method for
educating the masses, instead of being
left . to the whims and fancies of
This is our challenge! This is our

Realizing t.he need for the adoption
of progressive attituds on the Uni-
versity of Michigan campus, we of the
Progressive Coalition propose:
1. To establish an all-campus dat-
ing bureau. 2. To reduce the radio
fee. 3. To equalize rights and oppor-
tunities for racial minorities. 4. To'
establish more campus cooperatives
and keep them free from university
regulation. 5. To improve the organi-
zation of independent students. 6. To
obtain 10:30 permission for freshmen
women on week nights.
7. To lower rooming costs. 8. To
produce a better freshman handbook.
9. To improve student working con-
ditions. 10. To support progressive
education as is exemplified by an in-
troductory course in marriage rela-
ion. '

The Nationalist Party has been or-
ganized with the expectation that .it
will be able to secure the support of
those conservative and thoughtful
persons on this campus who heartily
disapprove of the attitude of the left-
ist groups, at present and to an ex-
tent unwarranted by the proportion
of their support from the student
body, directing the policies of the
Student Senate and attempting to op-
pose the program of the University
authorities in their reorganization of
the administration of the Michigan

the American people in the same
fashion as was done in 1914-1918.

The increasing deliberation of the
Student Senate on world and national
problems is unjust toward the Stu-

The American Student Union Can-
didates will work for these objectives:
1. Keep the Michigan Daily a stu-
:Ient newspaper by fulfilling the re-
organization plan sponsored by 17 out
of 21 Daily editors.
2. Bring the University curriculum
up to date by-a) giving opportunity
for student criticism of courses and
profs, b) extending the honors pro-
gram, c) setting up courses on Ameri-
can democracy in this troubled world,
on Negro culture, and on the prob-
lems of war and racism.
3. Cut down the price of being aj

ops and low-cost University dorms,

more scholarships and NYA, better
student labor conditions. Extension

6. The student's stake in peace, in

8. America's peace and integrity
can best be preserved by a program
such as adopted by the All-Campus
Peace Committee.
a) Recognizing that fascist aggres-
sion is the real war danger today, and
that "appeasement" and isolation
mean selling out to the fascists.
b) American leadership in the
struggle for world peace, through dis-
tinction in our foreign policy and
trade relations between aggressor na-
tions and victims.
c) The Good Neighbor program
for continental solidarity.
d) Strengthening and democratiz-
ing our armed forces.
e) Forwarding social and economic
security as a part of defense as basic
as armaments themselves.
