At Dean's Home
University students will be offered
two different peace meetings next
month, one which has received offi-
cial approval and another which has
A clash over who should receive
official permission to sponsor peace
rallies has split the campus anti-war
group into two factions, and has
drawn a cry of "discrimination" from
one group which las the support of
many members of the recently-.
banned American Student Union.
As a result, Sen. Burton K. Wheel-

Another rPea cMeeting
On May 1, four days earlier, an-
other group will sponsor a meeting
headlining Rev. Owen D. Knox of
Detroit, but they will be doing it
without the sanction of the Commit-
tee on Student Affairs.
This latter group, the Campus
Peace Council, gave expression to
their protest last night byimarching
to the home of Dean of Students
Bursley in a body some 50 strong, and
requesting an explanation for the
Committee's failure to approve the
May 1 rally.
Earlier yesterday they had sought
both permission for the meeting and
recognition as an University organi-
The committee refused the request,
stating that the application had been
made by a "non-recognized organiza-
tion," and indicating that other Uni-
versity regulatons had not been met.
Bursley Speaks
Dean Bursley spoke to the group
from his front porgh for almost an
hour, assuring the students that they
were free to hold "any sort of a rally"
when the legal requirements had
been fulfilled.
"The Committee iefused your re-
quests today because you were not
a recognized organization and be-
cause you did not allow the Univer-
sity sufficient time to consider the
speakers which have been invited,"
he said.
Elman Service, a University senior
who dropped from school in 1936 to
enlist in the ranks of the Spanish
Loyalist Army, explained the action
of the Peace Council:
Peace Action Obligatory
"It was felt that the present drive
by the National Government to con-
voy shipments to England and the
speed with which the nation is being
pushed down the road to war made
obligatory that the traditional stu-
dent action for peace be held immedi-
The Peace Council was born about
a month ago when the Wheeler spon-
,ors refused to accept the support of
the ASU group. Inasmuch as it has
failed to obtain University approval,
the May 1 rally will be held on other
than University property, and will
not be advertised through the Daily

boards, and in other routine student

Liberal Arts Curriculum
Gives Broader Education,
Dean Woodburne States
Applicants for admission to the
Degree Program for Honors in Liberal
Arts will be called for within the
next few days by the Board of Tu-
tors, Dean Lloyd Woodburne an-
nounced yesterday.
Under this program the University
is giving an improved liberal educa-
tion to certain students; the purpose
of the program is indicated by an
opinion expressed by Dean Wood-
burne, "Until the student gets to the
point where he is actually using his
mind on the material he is studying,
he is getting no education."
Five years ago a conversation be-
tween Prof. Charles F. Remer, of
the economics department, and Dean
Erich H. Walter, travelling together
from New York, formed the nucleus'
of Michigan's new ideal in education.
Result of the conversation was a dis-
cussion group of members of the fac-
luty, including Dean Walter, Pro-
fessor Remer, Prof. Burton D. Thuma,
Prof. Warner G. Rice, Prof. Ralph
Sawyer, and Prof. Joseph Hayden.,
At that time the group intendedj
to attempt to work out a new system
of education which would be nearerj

Rally Plans Haphazard
The Committee felt that the pro-
posed peace demonstration is being
planned so haphazardly and so hur-

Such groups as the Karl Marx So-
ciety have been able to gain recog-
nition. If and when the All-Campus
Committee is able to comply with
these rules, it will be allowed to hold
a peace demonstration.
Committee Acts Too Late
This peace committee was formed
in an exceedingly great hurry and
made no effort to gain recognition
until it was too late for the Affairs
Committee to grant it.
I personally feel that the type of
peace program desired by the All-
Campus Peace Committee should be
held.' I have signed petitions to that
effect. The 1urton K. Wheeler ad-
dress, to be sponsored by the Anti-
War Committee on Monday night,
May 5, is more of a lecture than a.
peace rally and will have no student
participation. , It does not answer
the need for the out-of-doors morn-
ing rally that has become traditional.
