Political Action Committee - indefi-
nitely and re-dedicate it to winningj
additional congressional seats in
Wild ovation reminiscent of the
political conventions last summer
greeted Sidney Hillman, chairman
of the CIO's Political Action Com-
mittee, and Philip Murray, CIO
President, when they tried to talk.
Virtually a half-day was devoted
to PAC-its part in the recent cam-
paign and its avowed role in the
future-in speeches by Hillman, Mur-
ray, and a dozen leaders of the
unions in the Congress of Industrial
to the campus. One of its functions
in pre-war days was entertaining
visiting high school athletes. Many
a student, perhaps a future All-
American, was attracted to Michigan
through the efforts of Sphinx. An-
other Sphinx, project was a band
send-off. The group campaighed for
money to send the band to out-of-
town football games.
In pre-war days Sphinx initiations
were held in the early spring and
fall, and about ten men were initia-
ted each time. Initiation consisted
of a public and a private ceremony.
In the public ceremony Sphinx
pledges were put aboard a hay rack
and towed around the campus, a
battle ensuing as the rack was drawn
through the Engine Arch. Now ini-
tiations are held at the beginning of
each of the three school terms dur-
ing the year.
President of Sphinx 'is Henry
Mantho, and Bob Nussbaumer is
secretary-treasurer. Other members.
include Dave Loewenberg, Ray Dixon,
Joe Ponsetto, Bruce Hilkene, Jim
Aliber, Tommy King, Bob Stevens,
Bob Stephenson and Mike Farnyk.
Dean Walter E. Rea acts as advisor
for the group.
