One-Night Dance Approved
By Student Affairs Committee
J-Hop plans, which have been up in the air thus far, were even more
stratospherically inclined after yesterday's meeting of the Student Affairs
Committee and the J-Hop Committee.
As things stand now, the Student Affairs Committee has approved
a J-Hop to be held Fri., March 8 with one of the top bands in the coun-
try, a ten dollar ticket charge, and all proceeds going to the University
of the Philippines and the Red Cross. Admittedly there would be a
great margin of profit on the dance, -'

WASHINGTON, Jan. 24 - )-
President Truman expressed the view
today that there is too much power
on both sides in current labor dis-
putes and Congress now must exert
the power of the people.
He appeared to reject the proposal
of Benjamin F. Fairless that he call
a White House conference of man-
agement to consider "what kind of a

Strong Federal
Housing Action
Determined action by the Federal
Government in coping with the hous-
ing situation in the most forceful
and prompt manner possible. was
strongly urged by the Ann Arbor
Chapter of the American Veterans'
Committee at a meeting last night.
To achieve this action the A.V.C.
unanimously endorsed the following
1. The control of housing prices
embodied in the P a t m a n Bill
2. The comprehensive ,approach to
the whole problem of housing and its
treatment of low-cost housing, em-
bodied in the Wagner-Ellender-Taft
3. Stimulation of production of
building materials and further
strengthening of the recent Execu-
tive Order, Priorities Regulation 33,
affording priorities on houses con-
structed for sale or rent to veterans.
4. Reductions of the ceiling, now
established in Priorities Regulation
33, from $10,000 (or $80 per month
rental) to lower levels more consist-
ent with the needs of veterans.
Neil Staebler, and Russell Wilson
reported on the national and local
housing shortage problem. Staebler
said "In the year 1946, 3,200,000 hous-
ing units will be needed, which in-
volves one-ninth of all the families in
the United States. The Patman Bill
is at least a short-range answer to
this major problem."
Four delegates will be chosen at
the February 7 meeting to represent
the Ann Arbor Chapter at the na-
tional A.V.C. convention.

settled with the wage increase of

The Student Affairs Committee ap-

affiliate itself with American Youth

A request for permission to col-

of strikers in the General Motors
dispute was, however, refused.
MYDA will now request admission
to AYD, which is a national organi-
zation with chapters on 58 college

issues of the dispute.

All faculty members who have not

nade radar contact with the moon
in an experiment which promises
'valuable peacetime as well as war-
time applications."
The tests were carried out at the
Evans Signal Laboratory, Belmar,
N. J. The first contact with the moon
was made Jan. 10 and has been suc-
essfully repeated several times.
Special Equipment
Using specially designed equip-
ment, pulses of very high frequency
energy were shot into space at the
speed of light-186,000 miles per sec-
ond-and the echoes detected some
212 seconds later. The moon is about
238,857 miles distant, on the average,
as both.it and the earth move around
the sun.
"The Signal Corps experiments
have valuable peacetime as well as
wartime applications, although it is
impossible i at this stage to predict
with certainty what these will be,"
the War Department said.
Radio Control
One of the possibilities is the radio
control of long-range jet or rocket
propelled missiles, circling the earth
above the stratosphere. The German
V-2 missiles were believed to have
reached an altitude of 60 miles.
Maj. Gen. Harry C. Ingles, Chief
Signal Officer, said the primary sig-
nificance of the achievement is that
for the first time scientists know the
certainty that a very high frequency
radio wave sent out from the earth
can penetrate the electrically charged
ionosphere which circles the earth
and stratosphere. The several layers
of the ionosphere start about 38 miles
above the earth's tsurface and extend
to approximately 250 miles.
String Quartet
To Open Sixth
Festival Today
The Budapest String Quartet will
mark their second consecutive ap-
pearance in the annual Chamber
Music Festival today and tomorrow
in Rackham Lecture Hall with se-
lected quartets by Hindemith, Mil-
haud, Piston and Schubert.
Presenting the sixth annual series
of chamber music concerts, the Quar-
tet will open its program at 8:30 p.m.
today with the E-flat major quartets
of Hindemith and Beethoven and
Haydn's "Quartet in D minor, No.2.'
The programs for tomorrow are as
follows :
Saturday, 2:30 p.m.
Quartet in F major, K.590......Mozart
Quartet No. 12 ................ .Mlhaud
Quartet in G. major, Op. 161. ... Schubert
Saturday, 8:30 p.m.
Quartet in A major, No. 5......Beethoven
Quartet .............................Piston
Quartet in E-flat major...........Dvorak
The Quatet which made its Amer-
ican debut at Cornell University ir
December, 1930, is composed of Jose
Roismann and Edgar Ortenberg, vio
linists; Boris Kroyt, violist; an
Mischa Schneider, violincello.
A limited number of tickets will b
available before each performanc
in the Rackham lobby.

but it was felt by the Committee
that the provision that profits
should go to charity justified the
price of tickets.
But the J-Hop Committee, which
was chosen in a recent all campus
election, felt that it would be unfair
to ask students to pay as much as ten
dollars for a modified J-Hop of this
kind. According to Charles Helmick,
chairman, the Committee plans to
attempt to show that at least two
dollars less (eight dollars) could be
charged for tickets and still leave ap
substantial margin for charity. e
Name of the band which it is hoped d
can be obtained for the dance cannot9
be officially released at this time be-a
cause final contract terms have notc
yet been determined.
The Student Affairs Committee
flatly refused the J-Hop Commit-1
tee's original request for a two-c
night, three band, pre war J-Hop t
with provision for house partiest
and breakfasts afterwards on the
grounds that it was too elaborate ar
dance to be held at this time. <
Originally the dance was scheduledr
to be held the weekendof March 1,4
but the date of the dance was moved
up because a better orchestra will beI
obtainable at that time. If the Hop is1
held March 8, permission has been
granted to hold the dance from 10
p.m. to 2 a.m. in the Sports Building.

Philippine Fund Gets
Money from Dance
The girls of Martha Cook again
boosted the Philippine fund drive
yesterday when they decided to con-
tribute the $35.46 left over from their
Winter Formal.
. This supplements the recent pledge
for a minimum contribution of one
dollar per resident. Several girls are
giving up cokes and are doing extra
work in order to help the drive.
In explaining their support of the
t drive, one of the girls said: "We want
to do all we can for the drive in the
hope that others will follow suit.'
The campaign for $7,500 to help re-
place books and equipment at the

Constitution of
Student Body
Is Accepted
Affairs Committee
Gives Go-Ahead Sign
Unanimously approving the pro-

gave the go ahead signal to plans for
a revised student government on
All that is necessary to make the
Constitution official i ratification
by the student body in the next all
campus election which probably will
be held early next semester.
Nine Member Council
The proposal calls for establish-
ment of a nine-member Student
Council elected from the campus at-
large which would act as "spokes-
man" for the student body. There is
also provision for a Forum made up
of representatives from every recog-
nized student organization on cam-
pus which would serve in an advisory
capacity to the Council.
Major change made by the Student
Affairs Committee was to provide
that "the Council may call in as ad-
visors the Dean of Students and the
Dean of Women to serve in an ex-
officio capacity at Council meetings."
This modified Article III of the pro-
posed constitution which had read,
"The Council shall call in as advisor
that member of the Administration
most intimately connected with stu-
dent activities (to) serve in an ex-
officio capacity at all Council meet-ig . t e h ne p r vd b
ings."o Oter change approved bry
the Committee were 'minor altera-
tions in wording.
Council Meetings Open
Among the significant provisions of
the proposed constitution are that all
Council meetings shall be open to the
public and shall be held at regular in-
tervals, that Council members shall
have "held positions of executive re-
sponsibility in recognized campus or-
ganizations or the Student Govern-
ment for a period of at least two se-
mesters" and that the Council shall
supervise all campus elections.
More specific functions have been
left for the first elected Council to

Prof. Allen To - Attend
Higgins Lake Meeting
Prof. Shirley W. Allen of the
School of Forestry and Conservation
will attend a meeting of the State
Committee on Conservation Educa-
tion being held today and tomorrow
at the Department of Conservation
Training School, Higgins Lake.
The purpose of this committee is
to promote the use in secondary
schools of information on natural re-
sources and the understanding of how
they are administered and conserved,
with emphasis placed on local situa-
tions. The committee attempts to
introduce study of the ways in which
people make a living from natural re-
sources, of the way the local com-
munity gets its water supply and
building materials and of the pri-
mary natural resource industries.
