Student Senate Gives Support
To Move For Reorganization

Adding the OK of Interfraternity
Council and Panhellenic to its grow-1
ing list of endorsers, the Universityj
division of Russian War Relief, Inc.,
continues its all-out campaigning to
secure adequate funds with which to
"save the lives of 100 wounded Red
Army soldiers."
Don Stevenson, '42, IFC chief, said
Sunday that "RWR has my whole-
hearted support. No other agency is
carrying on this important function1
of getting sorely needed medical sup-
plies to the Soviet Union.' .
Panhellenic president Patricia
Hadley, '42, echoes this sentiment:
"Russian soldiers are being killed and1
wounded in our battle. All possible
aid including medical supplies should
be sent in a continuous stream to the
Soviet Union. In view of the crucial
spring offensive being planned by
the Nazis, we should redouble our ef-
forts to aid the Soviet Army and peo-
ple, '

on a junior and senior appointment1
system, will take over these duties.
Other features of the plan include
elimination of proxies and "sena-
torial courtesy," both among the more
prevalent of present evils. In the
new senate it will not be possible for
a resigning senator to name his own
successor and thus perpetuate a non-
elected line of "representatives."
Judging from last night's debate,
the pian's major wrinkles lie in the
number of representatives, its rela-
tion to existing organizations, and
the basic question of appointive vs.
representative student government.
A major feature of O'Connor's plan
was brought out by one senator who
declared that "it concentrates re-
sponsibility in nine men and women,
instead of dispersing it over 30. This
may be the means of eliminating one
of the most often voiced University
objections to present student govern-
Discussion of the proposal ranged
from mild parliamentary points to
heated motion-making. Senator Ray
Davis , '42, took a walk at 9:35 p.m.
in protest against the chair's refusal
to recognize him. Davis's "Al Smith"
was greeted with mixed emotion from
the floor but catcalls predominated.
Basically O'Connor's plan embodies
the. widely-successful city manager
system while junking a policy-form-
ing group overburdened by numbers.
The senate itself is to be elective in
origin, but the personnel who trans-
late resolutions into reality w~ould be
chosen on the same appointment sys-
tem used now by The Daily.
Other senate business saw the an-
nouncement of a defense stamp out-
let to be set up at the University Hall
candy counter. The senate was also

told that the Defense Stomp had
taken in $2.90 in war savings stamps
to fight the Axis.

She's here in the United Si ates asl
a concert pianist because she won a

and can play a mean Chopin, Bachf

Early this year she was a special
guest of Mrs. Roosevelt at the Whitet
House. "Thrilled so much i can't de-
scribe it," Senorita Carrillo met the'
President and thinks "... he has the
most wonderful expression I have
ever seen. Dynamic, you call it."
Visits Ann Arbor
Wearing her mother's white pearl1
necklace and sometimes talking in
Spanish too fast to understand, the
Argentian "Lady in Red" is in Ann

is "very large" and she's disappoint-

let her see the "Ford factories."
She's been guest artist over the
NBC and CBS hook-ups and was of-
fered a contract by the former. How-
ever, the union fee of $50 was "too
much for me" and "I couldn't join
the union anyway" since the govern-
nkent of Argentina was backing "my

of the Union all this week.
Successful applicants will be

His travels "off the beaten track"
have provided Dr. Norman Hartweg,
Assistant Curator of Reptiles and
Amphibians in the Museum of Zool-
ogy, with some unusual material for
his lecture to La Sociedad Hispanica
at 4:15 p.m. tomorrow in Alumni
Memorial Hall.
Dr. Hartweg has visited southern
Mexico on three expeditions for the
purpose of studying the reptilian and
amphibian life of that region. Dur-

customs of the Indian tribes. Speak-

MANCHESTER, Mich., March 17.
---A fine-comb search of several acres

classified as:
'Good Neighbors' Classified
1) the "youngsters' with terrific
enthusiasm for port wine. Between
20 and 25.
2) the very attractive men who
"unfortunately" are all mrtried. They
ranged between 28 and 35 years of
3) the "wealthy ones" who are not
married and she didn't like them very
much, she said. Their ages run from
35 to 42.
As far as Miss Carrillo is con-
cerned, New York is "nothing excep-
tional." She's used to it because it's
similar.to Buenos Aires.
The art galleries in Washington,
D.C., impressed her and she spent
days "just looking."
But West Virginia was something
else. "The atmosphere there is pure
United States with a flavor you can't
find in all your big cities." During
her short visit "in the mountains"
Miss Carrillo square-danced and
"loved it."
