:alled Extension Of Democracy
By ROBERT SPECKHARD
"A significant extension of student
democracy is taking place," Frank
Rideout, '41, president of the Inter-
Cooperative Council, said yesterday
in discussing the process of adopting
a constitution for a central govern-
ing organization of the nine stu-
dent cooperative houses on the Uni-
"The 220 students in nine coopera-
tive houses are now in the process
of taking effective steps to meet the
problems that are of their common
concern and interest by establishing
an Inter-Cooperative Council with
legislative and executive power.
Thus, all cooperative house members
shall be able to decide upon things
that effect their lives, which is the
very essence of democracy," Rideout
"The present Council has been
nothing more than a clearing house
for the individual houses andihas
not 'had the authority to legislate
on common matters. Now, by a pro-
cess of discussing a tentative con-
stitution in the individual houses,
revision of it on the basis of criti-
cism, and a final referendum in all
the houses, this situation is being
met," Rideout observed.
"It is a tribute to the appreciation
of the democratic process that these
students possess, that they are now
doing so," he added.
"Each individual house now has
the relative powers envisioned for
the central organization, but many
of the problems to be faced by them
are greater than any one house can
effectively meet," Rideout continued,
"and therefore it is an important
step for the future of the movement
that is now taking place."
"The new Council will be able to
greatly facilitate the sound expan-
sion of the movement, somethings
which is very vital when one reviews
the phenomenal growth of the stu-
dent cooperative movement in the
last few years," Rideout stressed.
"Beginning in 1932 with the So-
cialist House (now the Michigan
House) the movement has swiftly
expanded in the last four years by
the addition of two girls' houses and
six men's houses, he mentioned.
"The others are the Alice Palmer,
Margaret Pickerill, Guild, Stalker,
Rochdale, Robert Owen, Congress,
and Brandeis houses," Rideout con-

dent of the University, last week issuedf

summary of news from eery impor-
tant department and bureau. This ise
the first of a series of two articles
which TIhe Daily wil publish concern-
ing some of the subjects discussed in
Dr. Ruthven's report.)
An old age pension plan for non-
faculty members of the University
today is even more remote than it
was a couple of years ago, according
to vice-president Shirley W. Smith.
Mr. Smith, in his annual report to
President Ruthven, said that "finan-
cial conditions have forced the aban-
donment for the time being of the
old-age retirement plan discussed
hopefully in previous reports" Uni-
Versity administration officials have
not forgotten the problem, Mr. Smith
added, because the pension system
is 'growing steadily more serious and
unavoidable both from the humane
and the business point of view."
The year 1938-1939 was one of
"unprecedented achievement" in new
buildings at the University of Mich-
igan. During the year land was ac-
quired and contracts let for eightI
new buildings, including equipment,I
at a cost of approximately six milliont
dollars. Work on all of the projects
is now in progress, and will all be
completed during 1940. The only
building which was financed by statec
funds was the Neuropsychiatric In-c
stitute, which vas completed in Jan-
uary, 1939, and deicated by appro-
priate ceremonies on February 11,N
Dead of Students Joseph A. Burs-
ley believes that the full influence of
the new men's dormitories can onlyr
be determined by time. In his an-
nual report for 1938-1939, Dean
Bursley said that "there is no ques-
tion but that the living conditions1
of a large part of the student bodyl
will be greatly improved, but what
the effect of the erection of these
Houses will have on the number and1
character of the men students of the
University only time can tell."
Sorority distribution of women
continued to be a problem in
Ann Arbor in 1938-1939. Dean
of Women Alice C. Lloyd report-
ed that eight groups of woment
were too large for their houses,
and four houses did not havet
sufficient members to fill their1
chapter houses. Dean Lloyd saidt
that the problem is being reliev-
ed through the joint cooperationl
of the faculty and the Pan-Hel
lenic Society. "At the end of the
year there seemed to be a better
spirit among sorority women and
a real feeling that they must,1
help each other in a crisis,"
Dean Lloyd declared.
University women earned $78,123
in 1938-1939, exclusive of summer
employment, according to University
statistics. A total of 761 women re-
ceived the employment. Almost half
of the wages were paid to omen in
private homes, working for board
