To Participate
T p
In Govermuent'
Dr. Risieri Frondizi
Explains Argentine
Educational Advances
"Students in the various universi-
ties of Argentina now have the right
to participate in the government of
their schools and to offer construc-
tive criticism to the authorities," Dr.
Risleri Frondizi, Grad., said last
night in the fifth in a series of lec-
tures on Inter-Americanism spon-
sored by the Latin-American Society.
"The right of student participa-
tion in the universities was the result
of a reform begun in the late nin-
teenth century to abolish the pre-
vailing university oligarchy," he con-
tinued. "The aims of the leaders of
the reform were directed toward
remedying the inefficiency of the
professors by enacting a new system
of appointments, and to introduce
the principles of education prevailing
in Europe and the United States,"
he said.
In 1918, the reform movement
gained considerable ground, Dr.
Frondizi added, when the First Na-
tional Conference of university stu-
dents met to discuss the various
school changes thit should be in-
stalled. In the years that have fol-
lowed, substantial gains have been
made in the government of the uni-
versities by both professors and stu-
"Our universities are now divided
into independent divisions corre-
sponding to the different schools in
the universities of the United States.
In some Argentine universities, these
divisions are united only through
their Board of Regents. A few of
the "most common divisions are medi-
cine, law, science, humanity, and
economics," he'explained.
The sixth in the series of lectures
sponsored by the Latin-American
Society will be presented by Dr. Jose

Preview Off ered
-U.S Program To Be
Released To Congress
WASHINGTON, April. 20.- (P)-
A preview of American delegates'
program for the United Nations food
conference was promised Congress
At the same time Judge Marvin
Jones, head of the delegation, ex-
pressed belief the press will be able
to receive "all the information as to
the proceedings (of the conferenceY
that our newspaper representatives
would believe right under the cir-
cumstances." Secretary Hull also
said he thought differences of opin-
ion over news coverage of the meet-
ing, opening May 18 at Hot Springs,
Va., would be ironed out in friendly
Chairman Fulmer (Dem.-S.C.) of
the House agriculture committee an-
nounced the delegates will "submit
their program" to both his commit-
tee and the Senate agriculture com-
mittee for the purpose of exchanging
views. He said this after the House
agriculture 4nd foreign affair com-

mittees conferred for two hours*with
Dean G. Acheson, Assistant Secre-
tary of State, on arrangements for
the conference.
The exchange of views "conces-
sion"-as some members of the com-
mittee termed it privately-ap0eared
unlikely, however, to silence a sharp
demand in congressional quarters
for representation, or at least a
chance to sit in on the food discus-
Rep. Hope (Rep.-Kan.), a mem-
ber of the agriculture committee, in
response to a question, said he had
no intention of withdrawing his res-
olution to send a five-member agri-
cultgire subcommittee to the meet-

developed for the common good of
humanity. We know that the day of
the exploitation of the resources and
the people of one country for the
benefit of any group in another
country is definitely over."
The reference of exploitation ob-
viously was directed at an old source
of American-Mexican friction -
American oil properties in Mexico
which the Mexican government ex-
propriated. That issue has been mov-
ing along toward a satisfactory solu-
President Avila Camacho too,
touched on it in speaking of the com-
mon aims of the two nations.
"We desire a living together free
of the perpetual threats which de-
rive from those who seek supremacy,"
he said. "Free from the supremacy in
the domestic field which-as we were
able to note during the period in
which this war was prepared-led
certain elements to place their class
interests above the interests of the
whole group."
Executives' Absence
Raises Problem
WASHINGTON, April 20.- (P)-
Disclosure today that President
Roosevelt is visiting Mexico while
Vice-President Wallace also is out
of the United States on a South
American tour prompted nauiries as
to whether this countrY has an act-
ing President for the first time in its
Constitutional lawyers at the De-
partment of Justice replied prompt-
ly in the negative. They could not
recall, however, any other time when
both the President and Vice-Presi-
dent were out of the country at the
same time.
They said President Roosevelt did
not temporarily give up the powers
of his office by leaving the country.
They cited article 2, section 6, of the
Constitution which provides for tem-
porary succession only in case of
removal, death, resignation, or "in-
ability to discharge the powers and
duties" of the office.

Once upon a time Room 2, Uni-

ing students and worried housewives.
It's still a haven for students work-
ing their way through college, but
for housewives it's a gold mine yield-
ing few dividends.
You see, in the days before the
draft and the ERC and PEM there
were fellows who had a few spare
hours a day for odd jobs, Miss Eliza-
beth Smith, director of student em-
ployment, said. "But now, while I
still have the odd jobs, I don't have
the boys.
"Day after day and week after
week I get phone calls asking for fel-
lows to clerk, to paint windows, to
wait table, to take tickets at thea-
tres, and every time I give the same
answer-'sorry, I don't have any-
body here right now'."

Within the last few weeks em-
ployers have placed requests for men
who would paint window frames,
clean up yards, prepare ground for
Victory gardens, clerk In stores,
"jerk sodas" for ice cream parlors,
serve food in the University Hospital
cafeteria, tend doors at theaters, and
serve as camp counsellors for the
coming summer.
Even The Michigan Daily has a
request for some ambitious fellow
who would like the position of head
It's a job in itself trying to find
fellows to fill all the requests I get
every week, Miss Smith said. And

it; she has the answer to most "job

"The question has been raised as
to why, in view of the splendid suc-
cess of our forces have achieved here
during the past year the situation is
now becoming more menacing on the
Australian front," the spokesman
"The answer is very simple. The
enemy has been bringing forward
heavy reinforcements of both ground
and air components with great rapid-
ity. It is our hope that our force will
grow to match his. Our successes in
the past are, unfortunately, not the
compelling factor in the coming bat-
tle. This campaign, as is always the
case in war, will be won in the future,
not in the past."

War Aims of WSSF
Students from cooperatives, dor-
mitories, sororities and fraternities
will take over seven campus posts
tomorrow in selling pamphlets de-
scribing the World Student Service
Fund, Barbara Smith, '44, chairman,
announced yesterday.
The posts to be manned by stu-
dents will be placed at the engine
arch, the library, Angell Hall, Nat-
ural Scfence building, the medical
school, the Union and the League.
Money obtained by this organiza-
tion is cabled to central offices locat-
ed in Geneva, Switzerland, and in
-China. From there the funds are
distributed throughout the world, to
aid students and professors in all
.war-torn areas; among the nations
which have received money are.

sia, Australia, Greece, India, and

enrolled, in addition to the fact that
the Army sent a smaller number of:
students than had been expected,,
enrollment this term has fallen off
It had been understood that the
Army would send 500 advanced stu-
dents to participate in the Army
Specialized Training Program. Of
the 500 only some 135 arrived here,
and of these some 60 per cent were
found not to be ready for the ad-
vanced courses and were put back
into the basic engineering courses,
with classes in physics, mathematics
and English rather than in the en-
gineering college buildings.
This has resulted in a smaller en-
rollment than usual, although some
pressure - from crowded conditions
has been felt in the mechanical en-
gineering department in which sev-
eral courses .were discontinued.
In addition, %classroom space has
been economized by a staggering of
class hours, so that some recitation
classes are being held in the after-
noon instead of before 1 p.m., as
has been the custom, and some of
the laboratory classes formerly given
in the afternoon come in the morn-
For the summer it is understood
that the Army will send approxi-
mately 500, students here for spe-
cialized training, and the Navy about
600. These increases will be only
partly offset by an expected falling
off in civilian enrollment.
According to the War Board ques-
tionnaires filled out by engineering
students, about 1,000 students expect
to return for the summer term. Thus,
an approximate enrollment of 2,100
will replace the usual 1,500 students
in the college.
A resulting lack of facilities, chief-
ly space, will be seen in laboratory
classes and in other courses in which
the Army, Navy and civilian pro-
grams overlap.

Sigma Nus 'Write
For Their Supper'
Wednesday Nights
"Little Tommy Tucker sang for
his supper."
Tommy Tuckers, in this case, are
Sigma Nus. And they write, not sing,
for their suppers.
On Wednesday evenings they are
offered the ultimatum, "You either
write a letter or you don't eat." This
action has been put into force to keep
in touch with the gang. Before din-
ner each must hand in a letter he
has written to a Sigma Nu brother
in service.
Consequently, some 25 or 30 let-
ters weekly wend their way to fra-
ternity brothers in uniform. Ernest
Schultz, '43, in charge of the special
service, sees to that.
No letter, no dinner, is sufficient
