oslovakia.

Election of IRA
Officers Will
Be Held Today
The Inter-Racial Association will
hold an election of officers at their
organizational meeting at 7:30 p.m.
today in the Union.
"The IRA is initiating an active
campaign," Herbert Otto, president,
said, "to eliminate racial discrimi-
nation from the town of Ann Arbor,
and urges all those interested in this
project to attend this oranizational
meeting."
IRA has as its purpose the promo-
tion of racial unity, elimination of
the sources and causes of inter-racial
friction and discrimination, and pro-
motion of the realization of a living
democracy, according to Otto.
To promote racial unity, the asso-
ciation has in the past sponsored lec-
tures, surveys, and polls, including a
survey of discrimination in barber-
shops, a committee to investigate ra-
cial injustice in the South, and a
series of lectures on the techniques
for eliminating racial discrimination
in the community.

Kell Protests
housing Limit
LANSING, Nov. 13-(AP)--Governor
Kelly declared today that congres-
sional proposals to place a $5,000
limit on new housing legislation would
"not meet the needs hi many parts of
our state."
He telegraphed Senators Arthur H.
Vandenberg and Homer Ferguson

that a $5,000 home built in 1940
would cost $7,000 to $7,500 today in
some parts of Michigan. He said the
state Office of Veterans Affairs, hous-
ing division of the State Planning
Commission and Executive Commit-
tee of the Michigan Construction In-
dustry endorsed his position.
Pointing to a large backlog of de-
mand for new housing among war
veterans, Kelly said the $5,000 limit
proposed in congress "will just defeat
the program" of inducing private
builders to construct homes.
He said the Detroit Builders Asso-
ciation has recommended to its mem-
bers that they set aside a "certain
percentage" of new home units for
sale to veterans as one means of help-
ing veterans fight a housing shortage.
Kelly sent the two Michigan senat-
ors the results of a questionnaire sent
to Michigan communities which
showed that 43 towns reported ex-
tremely serious housing shortage for
veterans, 21 reported very serious
shortage, 19 fairly serious and 14 not:
serious.
In those communities, he said,
three report new housing under way,
15 some new housing, 39 little new

Invitations to the Congress have
been sent to democratic student or-
ganizations in the United Nations and
neutral countries, and it is estimated
that about 200 delegates will attend,.
This figure includes six Americans.
Federation Aims
Aims of the proposed Student
Federation are: to act as the repre-
sentative international student organ-
ization, to provide means of encour-
aging cooperation between democratic
national organizations of students,
to promote friendship between stu-
dents of different countries, and to
promote the well being, and improve
the educational standards, of all ,stu-
dents in order to enable them to play
a full part as democratic citizens.
Some of the methods to be used in
carrying out these aims would be to
hold the international student confer-
ences to distribute information con-
cerning student interests in all lands,
to organize student travel and ex-
change, and to arrange international
sports activities.
To Discuss Similar Groups
Also on the conference agenda is
the discussion of the federation's re-
lationship to other groups with allied
aims-particularly the Educational
and Cultural Organization of the
United Nations.
A draft constitution for the pro-
posed federation has been drawn up
and will be considered by the confer.
ence. Following this study, the con-
stitution will be distributed among
the national studeht organizations.
If generally approved the constitution
will provide the working basis for
another conference in the summer of
1945 at which time the charter would
be officially ratified.
Vets Criticize
Soldier's Home
Lack of Food, Clothing
Reported at Meeting
Criticism against the lack of food
and clothing reported to exist at the
Michigan Soldiers' Home was strong-
ly voiced at the Armistice Day reun-
ion of the Last-Man's Club held last
Sunday.
Members of the club, whose mem-
bership is composed of the disabled
veterans of Washtenaw ;County,
heard Gustave Meyer report on the
information he received from veter-
ans at the Michigan Soldiers' Home.
Col. Joseph B. Bachus asked that vet-
eran organizations and citizens de-
mand an immediate investigation of
the alleged conditions at the home.
Prof. Arthur S. Aiton, veteran of
World War I, asked for complete co-
operation of veteran groups to pro-
duce the most favorable results for all
veterans.
A united front for all veterans or-
ganizations to insure fair play for all
discharged servicemen was recom-
mended by Prof. John H. Muyskens.
Ik asked that veterans receive
prompt fulfillment of pledges made to
them during the war.
Prof. L. J. Young, Wm. Tuomy, and
Julius Schmidt also spoke at the
meeting.

Dean To Speak
On Activities
At Convocation
Bus. Ad. Students To
Vote On Organization
The School of Business Adminis-
tration will hold its opening Convo-
cation of the year for faculty and stu-
dents at 11:00 a.m. tomorrow in the
West Gallery of Alumni Memorial
Hall.
Dean R. A. Stevenson of the School
of Business Administration will speak
on the school's program for the year
and the academic and extracurricular
activities of the students. He will
also discuss the overcrowded condi-
tion of the school, which, with an en-
rollment of 336, has more students
than ever before, topping its highest
previous enrollment of 233, in 1939-40,
by more than 100 students.
Because of the increased class
schedule there is an overflow from
Tapjan Hall into six other University
buildings: Angell Hall, Haven Hall,
Alumni Memorial Hall, the Econom-
ics Building, the Rackham Building,
and the University High and Ele-
mentary Schools.
The students will determine at the
Convocation whether or not they
wish to have a student organization,
and if so, of what type and character.
Union Labor Ruling
Promised by Court
WASHINGTON, Nov. 13-()-The
Supreme Court today promised a rul-
ing in a case raising a fundamental
union labor question-can a state
forbid the closed shop?
Florida voters wrote such a ban
into their constitution one year ago.
A three-judge federal district court
upheld it, although they expressed
"grave doubts" about their jurisdic-
tion. So the Supreme Court first will
inquire into the lower court's right to
act.
If the Supreme Court should de-
cide the district court exceeded its
authority, the latter's decision appar-
ently would be nullified.
