Next Step
STUDENT GOVERNMENT has passed its prim-
ary test, with approximately 3,500 votes. Ad-
inittedly, this total is not overwhelming, but it
is sufficient, in view of all the pessimism en-
countered before the election.
However, this is only the first step. The
students of the University have proved their
interest in student government. Now it is
up to the Board of Regents and the faculty
to show what concessions they are ready to
Before Tuesday and Wednesday's election, the
questions of jurisdiction and functions of a
student governing body were somewhat prema-
ture. Now, before definite officers are selected,
is the time to find out just how the authorities
stand on these matters.
President Ruthven has "expressed his plea-
sure at the large vote and congratulated
students on the interest shown." That's
fine. But no one has said anything about
what the students are going to be allowed
to do with their government. These matters
should be decided while campus interest is
still alive and kicking.
"The time has come to talk about just how
much authority student government will be'
-Phyllis L. Kaye
For Cooperation
A political campaign has just ended.
That leaves about 1,000 of us who didn't
This seems the time to say that we voted for
the Council-Forum type of government for
the simple reason that we wanted some form of
student government in the University.
The principle idea of the whole campaign was
to choose a representative form of government,
which would appeal to the majority of the
interested student body. Evidently, that has
been done.
The purpose has been achieved, and for
the first time since 1941, the University has
the means by which students can express
their opinions through a centralized -
recognized - organization.
Tension ran high between the groups during
this past week, but tension is not uncommon
in democratic communities that can freely ex-
press their varied ideas.
Tension should not run high now.
Granted there are some 11,000 students who
didn't vote, but enough did vote to show that
sufficient interest does exist on the campus to
warrant such a government.
This isn't a plea, because we don't think
a plea is necessary. It is, rather, an invitation
to cooperation and coordination of all our ener-
gies to firmly establish a just and democratic
form of student government' in the University.

.*The Redundant Years
WE HAVEN'T BEEN BACK on the campus
long, but the highly stylistic character of
collective undergraduate life reimpresses itself
upon us every day. And now that the eternal
verities of spring are around to emphasize this
deepening monotony of action and reaction, we
are driven to protest.
The Engineers (thru an understandably
anonymous character calling himself Nilon Hoze)
are making a noise which may sound to the un-
initiated like "missing Slide Rule," but which
we know well as cheap publicity. Nobody has
rung the lawyers in on it yet, and we don't know
who's more relieved, the lawyers or ourselves.
This is supposed to be tradition, but we're tempt-
ed to mutter about juvenility under our senile

Profound Apologies
DILIGENT and unwearying readers may re-
member a brief correspondence we recently
conducted with the third and fourth graders of
University High School. They may also remem-
ber that we got considerably the worse of a
spirited exchange and ended by agreeing to at-
tend their Easter tea.
We couldn't make it ourselves, but we had a
reporter there whose bulletins make us wish
we had. The boys knocked off a spirited ball
game, the girls cavorted in green crepe paper
skirts, and our correspondent quaffed punch with
the best of them,
The United Nations should get along so well.
Tune This One Out
IF ANYBODY wants to listen while we get this
off our chest, he's welcome. But we'd be the
last to insist on an audience while we vigorously
applaud the forward-looking spirit of a Daily
editorial which asked for that cement walk now
being laid in front of Haven Hall.
Combined memories around here go back to
about 1938, and nobody can remember any past
Daily editorial actually accomplishing good.
Praise the Lord and turn your eyes lower left
each day.

On Russian Spy
WASHINGTON--Inside fact about the arrest
of Russian Naval Officer Nicolai Redin is
that J. Edgar Hoover's G-men had their case
sewed up 100 per cent before they cracked down
on him. The facts were even placed before Presi-
dent Truman to advance.

Those attending the White House Conference
regarding Redin included hard-working Attor-
ney General Tom Clark, Acting Secretary of
State Dean Acheson, and the President himself.
Clark outlined the facts briefly and then asked
"Now, if this is going to embarrass our rela-
tions with Russia, I'll hold it up."
"The only thing I'm interested in," replied
Acheson, "is whether you have a case. If you
have, then go ahead."
Clark replied that, unquestionably, J. Edgar
Hoover had built up an airtight case, and out-
lined the record briefly. Truman expressed great
interest and said he would like to see the record
The record consists of about 100 pages conclu-
sively showing that Redin tried to buy and
eventually did obtain the plans of the USS Yel-
lowstone. The FBI had been shadowing him
for about eight months, in fact ever since he
approached a member of the ship's crew.
The crewman reported the conversation to the
G-men, who told him to continue his talks with,
Redin. During these, Redin asked various ques-
tions about the ship, and eventually offered to
buy the ship's plans. Under FBI instructions, the
plans were delivered to him, after which he was
arrested and they were retrieved.

what About Atheists?

To the Editor:
CONTINUED READING of the Michigan Daily
has made me aware of the presence on this
campus of the S.R.A., The Michigan Christian
Fellowship, the Christian Science Organization,
the Newman Club, the Hillel Foundation, the
Lutheran Students' Organization and many
others. These organizations exist evidently for
the purpose of making convenient the associat-
ing together of peoples of similar views.
They receive free publicity from the Michi-
gan Daily to which I have no objection; but what
does not seem right to me is that thee are
people on this campus, intellectually opposed to
what these organizations stand for, who, be-
cause they are not organized cannot proselyte,
cannot meet together to discuss their common
views and hear lectures by leaders in their move-
ment, and who do not benefit, either, from free
publicity in the Michigan Daily.
I am referring, of course, to the many free-
thinkers, agnostics, and atheists who abound on
this campus, and of whom I am one. First: we
declare that we need an organization, and to that
purpose, I hereby invite all people with views
similar to mine to get in touch with me so that
we can get concerted action on an Ann Arbor
chapter of the League of the Militant Godless.
Second: we ask the Michigan Daily to run our
announcements in the D.O.B. along with those
of other organizations whose purposes are legi-
We are not Communists! There is much in the
Russian experiment that we cannot approve. Yet
the well-known Russian freedom of anti-reli-
gious,as well as religious freedom, seems to us
to be a very democratic, forward-looking step.
Surely, we, in the freest, most liberal land in 1he
world will not, in this matter, take a back seat
to autocratic Russia.
-Dick Magillem, '46 Lit.
(EDITOR'S NOTE: Notices for the D.O.B. are to be
submitted to the Office of the Assistant to the Presi
dent, Rm. 1025 Angell Hall.)
Vet's Dance Complaint
tracted-out for private use. Well, isn't that
just dandy!!!
Isn't it about time that a little more consider-
ation be given the University of Michigan stu-
dent in respect to his social diversion? Other
than the very crowded Union Dance and the
campus movie, he is definitely limited in his pur-
suit of some form of relaxation necessary for the
relief of tension built up through out a week full
of concentrated academics.
I have reference, of course, to the refusal on
the part of the administration officials of the
League to grant permission to the student body
to initiate its plan for a campus nite-club. I feel
certain that anyone considering the matter ob-
jectively will agree that a great need for such an
organization does exist and that it should be
instituted as long as it is so much in demand.
The well-known fact that our University has
an exceedingly high enrollment this semester
really need not be mentioned. However, in addi-
tion to arranging for classsroom and living ac-
commodations for the overflow number of stu-
dents, don't you think that some attempt should
be made to present to the student the opportun-
ity for enjoyment of his periods of leisure?
I believe that something should be done!!!
-Michael Drickman
Negro Soldiers
TODAY we are faced with the problem of mili-
tary training of the youth of today and to-
morow. Yet in my personal survey I found that
the general public thinks that the Negro has
no interest in the military angle of his national
heritage. Due to the economic condition of the
South the military set up is governed by a great
majority of persons endowed with race superior-
ity, thus the Negro suffers.
The Ninety-Third and Ninety-Second Ihfantry
Divisions were re-organized to show that Negro
officers could handle it, but they turned out to
be nothing but promotion machines for white
officers especially from the South. This was true
in all other branches of the service as well.
When the Ninety-Third was formed there
were available, the 372nd, 366th, 369th Infantry
and the 184th Field Artillery (formerly the 8th
Illinois). These under B'rig. General P. O.
Davis, the only Negro general, could have formed

the 93rd Division, but instead they make Gen.
Davis. a social worker (put him on the Inspector
General's staff). As to his age he was the same
age as General Brett and General MacArthur.
Now at peace, Negroes are put on a very small
quota, yet you may be German, Chinese or any-
thing practically but a Negro and volunteer.
Here at home in 1934 Negroes attempted to
join the National Guard under then Capt. Bur-
lingame, only to be told "It would create a social
problem". In 1941 to join the Michigan State
troops, one hundred names were presented to
Capt. Wikel to be told "The Armory is too small,"
which incidentally, has three times as many mili-
tary organizations in it today as it did then. Said
Lansing "we have no money." In 1946 the Armory
is not large enough for one Negro to join the
Michigan State Troops.
You would rather see your son or daughter
die before you give the Negro the freedom of
volunteering !
-Rev. David A. Blake, Jr.

Deep Tratitude
To the Editor:
per and Betty Renwold for ex-
cusing our faults-because we are
veterans-to the extent that they be-
came tired. Such spirit is indeed com-
mendable. What we would like to
know is why they felt compelled to
grant us clemency in the first place.
Also we would like to say, "Now
that you are tired, please don't do it
anymore as we don't want to over-
work anyone, Now that you don't
have to excuse us, if the sight of us
becomes too hard for you to bear we
suggest you transfer to Vassar or
Smith where, we are told, an uncouth
veteran is indeed a novelty."

Esquire Is My Bible
(With apologies to the 23rd Psalm)
Esquire is my Bible, I shall not fail.
Coeds maketh me to hi down to
slick barber shops;
They leadeth me to zoot mens'
Yea, tho I walk 'cross the campus
of Michigan
I fear no coeds, for I am a smooth
My shine and my shave they com-
fort me.
I preparest Windsor knots upon me
in the presence of my mirror.
I annointest my hair with Kremel.
My smile bubbleth over.
Surely coeds and coeds will follow
me for the rest of my days,
And I will be a BMOC at Michi-
gan forever.

Female Plow Jockeys
To the Editor:
THIS is in reply to Walda Stahmer,
Gillian, et al.
Ye Gads!
Philip Snyder-himself was an
extrovert. The V-12 Unit disarmed
him for making so unfounded a
statement-I know. As a former
(oh joy supreme) trainee. I spent
the better part of the term con-
vincing my buddies that the man
was insane.
Three (3) "Huzzahs" for his scull;
I suggest that U.M. female plow jock-
eys try wearing clothes that are fit-
ting for classes, not for field work. If
they can't live without their work
clothes, perhaps I fnay be willing to
donate my well worn dungarees to
those-"Ye Gad, Sir, they're gorge-
ous girls."

What Cocktail Parties?
To the Editor:
NEW ASPECT of life on our cam-
pus has been presented by Mr.
Frank in his championship of Michi-
gan women. Is he referring to the
vast majority of our coeds in des-
cribing their sophisticated manners
at campus cocktail parties? Are such
parties held at the League, or the
women's dormitories? If so, how does
one secure an invitation?
Very few people, coeds included,
leave the P-Bell in a very high degree
of sophistication. In fact, with all due
respect to Mr. Frank, I wonder whe-

ther even he could drink a few pitch-
ers in a sophisticated manner. Beer
parties are, after all, a supreme test
of sophistication.
In referring to our girls as "flow-
ers of womanhood," Mr. Frank
moves from the comical to the ab-
surd. Blue jeans and men's shirts
are hardly analogous to the dai-
tiness commonly associated with
Many others were quick to criti-
cize Michigan men for half shaven,
poorly dressed appearances. To be
perpetually well shaven is not only a
near impossibility, it is a physical
hardship. There is nothing delight-
ful about shaving. It is an act in-
comparable with anything associated
with the daily life of the coed.
In reference to our clothes, if the
campus lovelies would confine them-
selves to the women's apparel shops
and quit buying men's clothing, per-
haps we might be able to buy some.
It's impossible to wear what you
can't buy.
The statements so generously
borrowed from Life magazine leave
us in confusion and dismay. Either
we or Life magazine have the wrong
