For Semester,

Insuring Plan
Is Sponsored
By Congress
Fire, theft and complete general
coverage on personal property may
now be purchased by students at
about one-third its usual price under
a plan sponsored by Congress, In-
dependent Men's Association.
This is possible through a group
plan, whereby reductions are avail-
able for large numbers of persons,
according to David Margold, '42E,
chairman of the Student Welfare
Committee of Congress. Rates on
:he fire insurance and general cov-
arage are 50 cents per $100 covered.
This policy also includes windstorm,
hurricane, flood, cyclone, riot, strike
and monsoon. This insurance is open
to all students.
Theft insurance is available at a
rate of five dollars per $300 covered,
Margold continued. This policy is
open only to students residing in
rooming houses and cooperative
houses and is the only low-cost theft
insurance obtainable in this part of
the country, Margold emphasied.
Margold also stressed the point that
this is a non-profit plan for inde-
pendent students.
This protection may be obtained
beginning next Monday at the Con-
gress office, Room 306 in the Union,
from 3 to 5 p.m. Plans similar to the
Congress plan have proved success-
ful, Margold concluded, on the cam-
puses at Purdue and Illinois.

LANSING, Oct. 2.-('P)-Governor
Dickinson's assertion that the
schools were responsible for the at-
titude of boys who threw eggs at
Wendell L. Willkie on his trip
through Michigan this week drew
objections today from Dr. Eugene
B. Elliott, State Superintendent of
Public Instruction.
The Governor said "Communistic
teaching that we are trying to get
rid of is to blame for this sort of
thing. It starts from that kind of
teaching. Youngsters never thought
3f that kind of action 25 yea\s ago.",
Asked by newsmen whether he be-
lieved communism actually was be-
ng taught in Michigan schools, the
Governor replied, "It comes pretty
Britain Will Abandon
Child Evacuation Plans
LONDON, Oct. 2.-(P)-The gov-
rnment announced tonight aban-
lonment "until further notice" of
the plan to send British children
>verseas to escape falling bombs.
"The recent loss of a number of
hildren who were traveling in the
steamship) 'City of Benai'es' has
illustrated the dangers to which pas-
;enger vessels are exposed even when
n convoy under the weather condi-
tions now prevailing in the Atlantic,"
an official government statement
said.

lose to that. It's difficult to define
his. There has been a lack of the
ight kind of teaching of respect ra-
her than the actual teaching of
ssms."
Dr. Elliott agreed with Dickinson
"hat "there's a lot to do yet," but
ie objected to the statement that
Aichigan teachers subscribed to
communism.
He asserted there were no com-
munist-inclined teachers in the pub-
ic schools "that I know of and from
what I know of local school officials
.t wouldn't be permitted five min-
ates." He pointed out that all pub-
ic school instructors in the state
iad taken an oath of allegiance to
uhe Constitution.
Neither did Dr. Elliott believe the
Governor's statement that a situa-
,ion such as was created when youths
6hrew eggs at Willkie in Pontiac
would have occurred 25 years ago.
Dr. Elliott, who attended high
school in Pontiac as a boy, recalled
Gnat .our school was nearly wrecked
,y a bunch of rowdies when I was
in school."
35,000 Blood
Tests Planned
LANSING, Oct. z.-P)-Dr. H.
Allen Moyer, State Health Commis-
,ioner, said today he has been noti-
fied by the Surgeon-General of the1
Jnited States to be prepared to pro-
,ess 55,000 blood tests or potential
Vichigar conscripts soon after the
elective service registration program
starts.
Dr. Moyer said he had been noti-
ied that approximately 27,500 men
might be drafted in Michigan as
class one conscripts and that up-
wards of 55,000 blood tests for syph-
ilis infection would be given. The
draftees would be tested for syphilis
first and might be eliminated for
other defects later.
Lieut. Col. Harold A. Furlong,
Chief of the Medical Division of the
Selective Service Headquarters, said
no official estimate had been made
of the number of Michigan men to
be in the first call in November, but
unofficial sources have placed it at
about 1d,000.
