A wide split in campus estimation
of various projected schemes for the
post-war world is revealed in a poll
of student representatives taken
Tuesday at the "Town Meeting" of
the Post-War Council.
Votes cast for four major plans of
international organization, a modified
league of nations, world-wide govern-
ment,: federations of regional sover-
eignty, and pax victorum, by delegates
of many campus activities and hous-
ing units indicated that Michigan
students, like the rest of the country,
are still far from unified in their war
Exactly 36 per cent of the ballots,
favored the modified league with the
same percentage favoring world-wide
government. Pax victorum followed
next with 22 per cent of the votes
cast. The plan for regional sovereign-
ty brought up the rear with only 5
per cent of the voters favoring it.
Although there was great diver-
gence of opinion as to steps to be
taken immediately following the war,
there was a more unified, though far
from unanimous, opinion that world-
wide government should be our ulti-
mate goal.
Typical of such an opinion was this
comment accompanying one of the
ballots, "Pax victorum seems the best
present solution. However, there are
two conditions, two "ifs". First, the
United Nations must be educated and
rehabilitated themselves and second,

for peace and of her fear of American
imperialism, especially distrust of a

Vacation Starts at M.S.C.
EAST LANSING, Dec. 16.- (P)- A
three-week Christmas holiday vaca-

remarked that they "would benefit
such areas as Europe but would be
largely academic and unnecessary in
many other areas."
"These four plans are overlapping

just, social and humane elements of
each into a more satisfactory pro-
gram," was the reaction of another.

World Union Analyzed
by Kathleen Courtney
"A worldwide organization of na-
tions united as the countries desire
rather than through compulsion is
the most popular idea for post-war
planning in England at the present
time," Miss Kathleen Courtney,
prominent English lecturer, said yes-
"The organization must be formed
with two objectives in mind," she'
said. "First, it must be such as to
protect the world from future ag-
gression; and second, it must pre-
vent an economic chaos such as
followed in the wake of World War I'
She emphasized the fact that this
security may be assured only if every
citizen is convinced that international
law must be maintained. "An inter-
national police force itself will not
be necessary if everyone recognizes
its aim," she said.
"England believes that this is a
generation of the common man," she
added," and it is the duty and privi-
lege of the United Nations to see that
the rights of the common man are
upheld in the post-war world."
Miss Courtney pointed out that
this will be possible only through very
close cooperation of all the Allies.

Krause were named co-chairmen of

No Liquor Advertising in Canada,

Hundreds of hitch-hiking students,
polishing up their pet thumbs, fear,
that this year their mooched journeys
aren't going to be so easy to get.
The men of the road with long rides
ahead seem to be facing an impos-
sible task.
On the other hand, the consensus;
of opinion seems to be that if the
goal isn't too far, they will get there,
more quickly by means of the thumb
than the trains and buses.
Doug Aldrich, '45E, who went via
-this method to and from Detroit Sat-
urday, said that he spent a total of
only 15 minutes waiting for rides, al-
though as was to be expected there
were few cars on the road. "Drivers
seem to realize the difficulty, and
they're much more willing to pick
up hitch-hikers,", he said.
Going so far as to say -that thumb-
ing is even easier than before, Al Rus-
kin, '45, said that he spent only five
minutes beside the road during his,
trip to Detroit last week-end. Herman
J. Hudson, '44, echoed the statement,
saying that he has had "not much
So far as going a great distance is
concerned, Louis Zeitz, '44E, thinks
it doesn't pay. He spent 36 hours on'

LANSING, Dec. 16.- VP)-


Michigan Council of Defense, holding
its final 1942 meeting here today, was
informed that the housing situation
in war-busy metropolitan Detroit
would not be as serious as expected
this winter.
Raymond M. Foley, state housing
administrator and council member,
reported that the rate of migrant
munition workers had fallen below
expectation in the Detroit and Willow,
Run areas.
Foley estimated that 28,000 living
units, privately built,.have been made
available or are under construction in
the Detroit and Willow Run areas and
that 8,000 additional units are allow-
able there. He said construction of
2,000 privately built units had been
recommended for the Detroit area
