When First Session Convenes
Vice-President Makes Hit in Panama

"The farmers say that they have
been subsudizing urban consumers for
over 20 years, and that food prices
were too low when the war began.
They contend that rising food prices
is a minor factor in causing inflation
as compared with the great increase
of urban purchasing power in recent
Farm leaders state that a 10 per
cent increase in the farm price of
foods .will increase the cost of liv-
ing of the average urban family less
than two per cent." continued Prof.
The substitution of the Canadian
wage policy for the present war-time
wage policies in the United States,
was advocated yesterday by Dr. John
W Riegal, Director of the Bureau of
Industrial Relations in the economics
"It Is virtually impossible to keep
a stable ceiling on prices," he said,
"so some plan must be adopted by
which wage levels may be kept in
equality with the rising cost of liv-
ing. The Canadian plan has proved
successful since is was begun in 1941."
He explained that this plan calls
for the selection of a moderate, but
not minimum, rate of prewar wages
as a base. Provision is then made for
a flat bonus of twenty-five cents per
week for wages over $25, and a one
per cent increase for wages under
$25 for each corresponding increase
in the cost of living. This provides
for a trend to equality for the lower
bracket incomes and yet provides a
small addition to the upper brackets.

"The Negro and the Community,"
a review of the problems confronting
the population of the United States
over the pressing Negro discrimina-
tions, and a hope for an eventual
solution, was expressed yesterday by
Mr. Ernest E. Neal of the Sociology!
Presenting the background of the
Negro problem, Neal pointed out that
it was the attitudes of the American
public toward the Negro that were
causing the strife between the white
and black races.
Pointing out that the Negro does
receive education in America, Neal
indicated that this acquired knowl-
edge is going far toward giving the
Negro a better understanding of his
position, and a greater desire for
equality. It is this education which
has increased the problem now facing
the American people, Neal said, and
the problem is now a "war issue."
Neal stated that not all outlooks
were grave, for the Negro has been
adjusting himself progressively over
150 years. His plight, however, is still
not what he would, and does, desire.
These international controls must
be carried out by an international
political organization vested with
police powers, and by a policy of
cooperation instead of competition
among nations, Dr. Hoffer main-
Hoffer stated that extreme na-

New Ships See Duty
WASHINGTON, March 26.- (/P)-
The Navy disclosed today that the
first of a fleet of auxiliary aircraft
carriers are in combat areas and
scores of others are building in ship-
yards on both the Atlantic and Pa-
tionalism favors competition, and
thus leads to wars. Only by the devel-
opment of a recognition of mutual
interests among nations and by the
development of the international
controls, such as military police con-
trol over the world and education for
international cooperation instead of
national competition and selfishness,
will any lasting peace ever be main-
The points set down as necessary a
basis for a lasting peace by Dr. Hoffer
1. A gradual shift toward freer
exchanie of goods among nations.
9. .The vesting of a supra-na-
tional body with military resources
to curb -nations with imperialistic
or exploitative ambitions.
3. Prteetionism among nations
must be modified to .-harmonize
with the responsibility of a nation
as a member of the international
4 . Further democratization of
the benefits of economic activity
.so that people may have a greater
degree of 'security.
Branding Mnichigan's legislative ap-
portionment arrangement as "leg-
islati'Ve tinkertoys," Prof. Charles
Schull of 'Wayne University, Detroit,
declared that there still are some
people who "want to keep the tinker-
toys fitted as they are at present."
Since his paper was prepared be-
fore the recent passage of a new ap-
portionment bill in the legislature,
Shull was forced to revise some of his
his points, his thesis that there are
selfish interests working in the legis-
lature and that - apportionment
should be 'iaintained on other than,
a population basis he affirmed.
(The Michigan Legislature passed
and sent to the governor Thursday
night the first reapportionment bill
in the state during the last 18 years.)

Center Board s
The Interclub Board of the Inter-f
national Center is completing itsS
first year, surpassing by far the orig-y
inal aims of the club, Robert Klinger,c
Assistant Counselor to Foreign Stu-
dents, said yesterday.
This group was formed last year
on request of various Center groups
in an effort to combine internation-
alism with the resurgence of nation-
alism, which, for the past four or
five years, had been strikingly re-
flected in the organization of new
national clubs, Klinger said.
The scheduling *of meetings and
parties for the twelve organized
groups, some of which met every
week, had, by the beginning of 1941,
become a baffling problem.
"The limited space of the Center
had caused an almost impossible
strain on our ingenuity and patience
to keep everyone satisfied and to
avoid unpleasant clashes," Klinger
In desperation, he called together
the representatives of the various
groups to discuss the situation. The
suggestion was made for an inter-
club board through which the con-
flicts of interests might be avoided.
Thus the idea of the Interclub
Board was formulated.
The Board, consisting of one
elected representative from each of
the twelve organizations and one
member of the staff of the Center,
was constituted by approval of the
committee.on student affairs.
"The aims of the Board, to pro-
vide a democratic means of coopera-
tion between the groups for their
mutual benefit and between the
Counselor and the Center, are broad,"
Mr. Klinger said, "but its influence
was immediately felt in the increased
exchange of courtesies between the
clubs, and in the willingness of the
different groups to assume responsi-
bility for Center projects."'
"The whole future of good rela-
tions among the foreign students at
the University may well rest in the
hands of the Interclub Board," Mr.
Klinger said, "for here is the only
truly representative body for coop-
eration among the groups."
