Rapid World
Declares UNO Will Fail
If World Keeps Arms
By The Associated Press
ASHINGTON, Jan. 28 - Senator
Tydings (Dem.-Md.) called on Presi-
dent Truman today to issue an im-
mediate call for a world disarma-
ment conference.
"In this state of a world armed to
the teeth," he told the Senate, "we
cannot further rely on the United
Nations Organization for our own
Fearful Of War
"It is as plain as the nose on one's
face," Tydings said, "that the great
armed forces of our own country are
DETROIT, Jan. 28-(P)-In a
plea for universal military training,
General Jonathan M. Wainwright
declared today he is "beginning to
see those symptoms of apathy and
disinterest which have appeared at
the end of every war we have
Speaking to members of the De-
troit Economic Club, the hero of
Bataan and Corregidor warned,
"when those symptoms appear, dis-
integration of the armed forces in-
variably follows."
He explained that the only allot-
ment to universal military training
would be maintenance of a large
standing army which would be not
only costly but also repugnant to
the American people.

sible use against Russia, Britain,

Japan are to be kept disarmed.
"Is it not plain, too, that Russia is
maintaining her armed forces for
possible vusei"against Britain or the
United States or France or China?"
Blames UNO
Tydings said the UNO's treatment
of the atomic bomb situation is feeble,
fumbling and ineffectual." He added
that it helped convince him that the
world organization is not "equipped
to initiate successfully" a task of the
magnitude of disarmament.

Explanations of various. passages
of the proposal will be made by
Wayne Saari, chairman of the Pub-
lic Affairs Committee of the Student
Religious Association, Sanford Perlis,
president of the Union, a representa-
tive of the Michigan League and
others who helped draw up the new
plan for student government. They
will, present a final reading of the
corrected constitution, complete with
changes suggested by the Student
Affairs Committee. They will discuss
election plans and putting the con-
stitution into effect and in addition
will aswer questions about the
amendments and other provisions.I
Important Change
One major change provides that
"The Council may call in as advisors
the Dean of Students and the Dean
of Women to serve in an ex-officio
capacity at Council meetings" in place
of "The Council shall call in as ad-
visor that member of the Administra-
tion most intimately connected with
student activities (to) serve in an ex-
officio capacity at all Council meet-
The constitution also provides for
a Forum of representatives of every
recognized student organization on
campus to serve in an advisory ca-
pacity to the Council; that all cam-
pus elections shall be supervised by
the Council; and that Council meet-
ings shall be held at regular inter-
vals and shall be open to the public.
Two Months Work
The constitution was drawn up af-
ter two months of extensive consulta-
tion with University officials, heads
of existing student organizations, and
other representative schools and or-
ganizations interested in promoting
student government.
"Everyone is urged to attend this
week's Town Hall meeting," said
Wayne Saari. "It is necessary to un-
derstand the provisions of this new
plan for student government before
it is presented for ratification by the
student body next semester."

by the water poured on the blaze.
Extensive Repairs Needed
The fire was caused by sparks fall-
ing on the roof from the chimney of
the building. The first floor of the
building was kept intact, but exten-
sive repairs are needed to put the rest
of the house in condition for re-occu-
pancy. Damage was estimated at
$6,500 by Mr. Shiel.
The residence on Oxford Road was
only recently vacated by Army stu-
dents, and is scheduled to. be used

Dr. Esson M. Gale, counselor to for-
eign students, announced.
"Luckily this building was avail-
able," Dr. Gale commented, "or we
would have found ourselves faced
with a serious problems as to where
to house these 22 students."

Seniors To Sign
Class Reoister
At Party Friday
A large registe, especially designed
and made to hold the names of sen-
iors attending the class functions of
the Class of '46, will be used for the
first time when the February grad-
uates of the literary college hold their
class party from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Fri-
day in the Women's Athletic Building.
"The party," Patricia Barrett, sen-
ior class president, said, "is intended
to be a 'get-together' for seniors grad-
uating in February, and invitations
are being mailed to them." She point-
ed out that the program will end at
9 p.m. so that seniors with later dates
may keep them.
Earlier plans to hold a dance in
conjunction with the engineering
school did not materialize she said
because of the lack of response on the
part of the students.
Miss Barrett, who is acting as gen-
eral chairman for the party, has an-
nounced the appointment of the fol-
lowing committee chairmen:
Refreshments: Carol Steen, Ed
Brehm; program: Harriet Pierce, Ar-
thur Kraft; prizes: Margaret Cook,
Catherine Cook; clean-up: Willard

tions: Betty Vaughn, Anne Highley;

U Offers New
Greek Course
The Greek department will offer
next spring term a new, experimental
course in the English translation of
Greek literature.
Entitled "Basic Greek Ideas"
(Greek 168), the ecourse will meet
Monday, Wednesday and Friday at
11 a.m., and will be conducted by
Prof. Warren E. Blake, chairman of
the Greek department. The course
will be open to juniors, seniors and
graduate students. The textbook to
be used is a direct translation of Aris-
totle's original work. Class room dis-
cussions will be part of the course.
In discussing this innovation, Dr.
Blake said, "The study of human re-
lationships has developed in modern
times into a number of specializedi
social sciences, such as sociology, po-
litical science and education. The
complexities of modern civilization
has made these technical subdivisions
necessary, but behind them lies a
simpler and more unified view of
man's relations to society-the far
less complicated society of Ancient
Greece. It is possible, by careful and
direct study of Aristotle's own work in
English translation, to get at the
roots of many broad theories which
constantly reappear in the specula-
tions of modern socialnscience."
Varsity Delaters
Discuss Far East
A definite obligation on the part of
the United States in promoting de-
mocracy in the Far East was seen by
members of the Varsity Debating
Club at the Sunday program spon-
-ored by the International Center.
Discussing "Our Stake in the Far
East,': debators also concluded that
the United States must help prevent
other nations from imposing im-
perialistic practices on the peoples of
the Far East.
Participants were Mary Battles,
discussing "Colonialism"; Charlotte
Wood, on "The Open Door"; Patricia
Owens, discussing "The Greater East
Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere"; and

Democrats Act
For Extension
Of OPA Powers
WASHINGTON, Jan. 28 - Emerg-
ing from a conference with President
Truman, Congressional Democratic
leaders announced today they will
press for speedy action on legislation
to prolong rent and price controls
for a year beyond the present June
30, 1946, expiration date.
Chairman Spence (Dem.-Ky.) im-
mediately set House Banking Com-
mittee public hearings on the OPA
extension bill to begin Tuesday of
next week.
Rep. Wolcott of Michigan, senior
Republican on the Banking Commit-
tee, said large numbers of Republi-
cans would support a continuation
of price control "where needed" but
they wans amendments for more pre-
cise definitions of OPA's powers.
Spence voiced the belief that the
bill would :o through "without much
trouble." However, the extension
measure is bound to meet some vig-
orous opposition. Some members just
don't like anything about OPA.
Film Set Plans
To Be Exhibited
Designs Sketched for
Signal Corps Movies
An exhibition of motion picture set
designs by Roger Hollenbeck, for-
merly with the Army Pictorial Serv-
ice, opened yesterday, the School of
Architecture and Design announced.
Working at the Signal Corps Pho-
tographic Center in Astoria, Long Is-
land, Mr. Hollenbeck planned and
designed sets for documentary, train-
ing and morale films. The sketches
on display are not to be regarded as
finished works, but as guides for sets
made for Army-produced films they
range fromn a Paris cafe scene to
quick sketches of the armed forces.
In addition to examples of Mr. Hol-
lenbeck's work relating to the war,
the architecture school is also dis-
playing set's that he planned for vari-
ous well-known musicals, thus giving
an idea of the work he did for a mo-
tion picture studio prior to his serv-
ice in the army.
French Lecture . .
The French lecture which was to
have been given by Prof. Warner
Patterson of the French * depart-
ment at 4:10 today in Alumnae Me-
morial Hall has been postponed.
The date of the lecture will be an-
nounced later.

Play Group
Will Present
Comedy Hit
The dream play, "Beggar Oni
Horseback," by George Kaufman and'
Marc Connelly will be the next offer-
ing of Play Production of the Depart-
ment of Speech Feb. 7, 8 and 9.
The play, a comedy with dream se-
quences, was produced on Broadway
in the early '20's and since then has
been a favorite in stock and on the
Marries Money
The story is about a talented but
poor musician, Neil McRae, who con-
siders marrying rich Gladys Cady in
order to take a rest and study music.
He is encouraged in this enterprise
by the girl he loves, Cynthia Mason.
In his dreams, Neil is confronted
with the incongruities of a marriage
with Gladys. The bride's wedding
bouquet is of bank notes. Her father
wears golf knickers to the formal
wedding. When Neil plays the piano
at the wedding reception the music
turns to jazz under his fingers.
Mass Production
After the marriage, Neil is em-
ployed in the Cady "widget" factory
where he is paid millions of dollars
for doing nothing. In despair he kills
the whole Cady family with his pa-
per knife and is sentenced to work in
the Cady Consolidated Art Factory
for life-a factory where masterpieces
are made to order on the production
line. Neil chooses to die instead but
awakens to find Cynthia willing to
marry him after all.

has become much more accustomed
to seeing men in men's roles and
women in women's roles, even though
during the war the campus experi-
enced then oveltyo of women taking
men'sp arts. And Play Production,
concerned only withs erious theatre,
has continuously presented stage fare
for the campus, climaxing each sea-
son with the weekly series of plays
during the summer session.
Most of the Universit's theatrical
talent is probably now with Play Pro-
duction. Maybe there is enough thea-
tre already. But for those who like
their theatre social rather than seri-
ous and who haven't the inclination
to spend all their time with the
theatre, Mimes might provide an an-
swer. And so the men whisper.
The Union itself never quite for-
got the operas. There is a constant
reminder of the past glory of
Mimes and the Union opera in the
display cases in the north lounge
of the Union, where a little card
proudly recalls that one Thomas E.
1Dewey was an Irish gentleman in
"Top o' the Morning" in 1923. "Top
O' the Morning," by tire way, even
played the White House for Presi-
dent Coolidge.
There are other still-remembered
titles there:' 'George Did It," "Koan-
zaland," "Make It for Two," "Cotton
Stockings." And if theree were noth-
ing else to hold that memory, when .
Michigan men and women get to-
gether almost all the school songs
they sing are products of the Union
operas. Bill Layton's romantic clos-
ing theme, "When Night Falls, Dear,"
comes from the opera "Michigenda."
Maybe reviving Mimes would re-
vive some of that stuff that alumni
nostalgically call school spirit. The
operas, that in their day attracted
500 men for the acting and staging of
one production, may bring more songs
and more gaiety into the Michigan
If you want to do anything about
it, you might talk to Henry Horldt of
the Union Executive Council. He's

heard the whispering too, and he's
trying to do something about it.
That's why, before the end ofu1946,
Mimes and the Union Opera may
come back again.
