Record Enrollment
Of 11,000 Expected
In Summer Session
A record Summer Session enrollment of about 11,000 is anticipated this
year by Summer Session Director Louis A. Hopkins.
Prof. Hopkins said that this record registration is expected because of
the large number of veterans, who are eager to complete their college pro-
grams quickly, in the University. The previous high of approximately 7,500
was attained for the first eight weeks of the 1945 Summer Term.
The recently announced boosts in tuition will not affect the summer tui-
tion this year. The rates for Michigan --

and out-state residents will be $35
and $55 respectively.
Freshmen Accepted
Although freshmen will be ac-
cepted for the Summer Session, Prof.
Hopkins said that there can be no
assurance that they will be permitted
to register for the Fall Semester, un-
less they are Michigan veterans. The
$25 acceptance fee will not be re-
quired from new enrollees in the Uni-
versity this summer.
Several hundred new registrants
are expected in the Graduate School
for the Summer Sesion. A large num-
ber of these will be teachers and
other professionals who can do grad-
uate work only during the summer.
University graduates who enroll in
the Graduate' School for the session
will be allowed to continue for the
Fall Term, but reenrollment of non-
University graduates will be contin-
gent on their acceptance for the Fall
Visiting Professors Added
A large number of visiting profes-
sors will be added to the faculty for
the session. Prof. Hopkins said that
many regular faculty members, who
preferred to follow other plans dur-
ing the summer, have arranged to
have the visiting professors take
their places.
The Medical School hospital
studies, which are still following an
accelerated program, will be the only
work given this summer on a full
semester basis. The Medical School
schedule will be coordinated with
the rest of the University by next
summer. Other schools will offer
work on 4, 6, 8, 11, and 12 week bases.
University Summer Session activit-
ies will be extended from Kilamy,
Ontario, to Mexico City. "We're go-
ing back to the spirit and scope of
the Summer Session before the war,"
Prof. Hqpkns said.
Congress Acts
To Re-Establish
Wolverine Co-op
Student Congress last night initi-
ated efforts to reestablish the Michi-
gan Wolverine as a low cost coopera-
tive campus eating place.
A special committee led by Con-
gressman Henry K. Kassis will peti-
tion Wolverine trustees to reopen the
cooperative for student use. The Wol-
verine was closed early in the war.
Kassis said last night he had the
names of at least 50 University vet-
erans interested in helping to run
the Wolverine, once it gets back on
its feet. His committee will report
at the meeting of Congress next Wed-
IFC Office Used
The new Congress voted to set up
shop on the third floor of the Union
from 3 to 5 p.m. every Tuesday, Wed-
nesday and Thursday in the IFC
office where students are invited to
air their suggestions.
They empowered President Ray
Davis to appoint six new committees
to work with the general and inter-
national committees already estab-
lished. These include veteran affairs,
finance, academic affairs, student
government, social and publicity.
Trial To Be Reconsidered
The Congress also voted to recon-
sider the disputed election trial of
Richard Cortright. Ruling that Men's
Judiciary was acting within its jur-
isdiction in outlawing Cortright's
election for voting irregularities, the
Congress scheduled a new trial be-
cause he had no opportunity to exer-
cise his legal rights in the ouster.
The new trial will be held Monday
evening with an impartial jury of
six students and a judge from the
faculty of the Law School or the po-
litical science department.
Judy Chayes was made permanent
chairman of the important General

committee to coordinate student-in-
terest on campus at the meeting. Con-
gress also voted to investigate and
establish if possible a Congressional
Record of their activities.

Peace, New Physics
Are Lecture Subjects
Discussions by University profes-
sors on Japan and China, Latin
America, world peace and freedom
and the new physics, were featured in
yesterday's session of the Adult Ed-
ucation Institute, which will be con-
tinued today in the Lecture Hall of
the Rackham Building.
Prof. Ernest F. Barker, chairman
of the Department of Physics, told
the Institute that by-products of
large-scale installations of atomic

cant than the power they will de-
"New and useful radioactive ma-
terials will be available in heretofore
unheard of quantities," the physicist

operate economically with Latin
America by supplying capital for in-
dustrial development and technical
How peace, bread and freedom may
be obtained for the whole world
without any conflict between groups
was described to the Institute by
Prof. Theodore Newcomb of the soci-
ology department. The solution, he
pointed out, lies in learning to dis-
criminate between purposes which
require a world attitutde, such as the
atomic bombs effect on national de-
fense, and the purposes which permit
each national group to continue to
"do things in their own way"
Dr. Frank L. Huntley of the Eng-
lish department, who was born in
China and lived there for 17 years,
advocated two Chinas, one dominat-
ed by the so-called Communists and
the other by the Kuomintang gov-
ernment, in his speech on "Japan
and China." Although such a solu-
tion would not be ideal, Dr. Hunt-
ley felt that this would be the best
possible under the circumstances.
Five Speakers

Today's program of the 14th annual
Adult Education Institute, in the
Lecture Hall of the Rackham Build-
ing, will include a discussion of Ger-
many by Prof. Benjamin Wheeler of
the history department at 9 a.m.,;
"The Techniques of Understanding"
by Prof. Norman Maier of the psy-
chology department, at 10 a.m.; "Re-

Cornet Trio
To Highlight
Band Concert
Ainua1 Program
Climaxes Season
Climaxing its spring term schedule,
the University Concert Band con-
ducted by William D. Revelli will
present its annual spring concert
at 8:30 p.m. today in Hill -Auditorium.
Mary Kelly and Dorothy and Mar-
garet Bosseawen will appear with the
band in a cornet trio, "Bolero," by
Walter Smith. Miss Kelly, of McCook,
Nebraska, has had extensive solo ex-
perience in the West and is the win-
ner of a national championship.
Trio Since 1945
The Bosscawens, of Mishawaka, In-
diana, have played a wide variety of
professional stage and radio work
as a cornet duo. The three girls have
been playing together since entering
the University in the fall of 1945.
Joseph Skrysnski will appear as
trombone soloist with the band, play-
ing "Summertime" from Porgy and
Bess Skrysnski is an engineering stu-
dent from Detroit and is first trom -
bonist with the band.
The Concert Band, which plays as
many as 50 engagements per school
term, has been nationally recognized
as one of the outstanding organiza-
tions of its kind. Ferde Grofe, Roy
Harris, Morton Gould, Edwin Franko
Goldman and other notables in the
music world have said that. "it stands
without a peer among college bands."
Employs Many Instruments
The concert band differs from the
marching band in instrumentation,
employing instruments such as alto
and bass clarinets, oboes, flutes, Eng-
lish' horns and bassoons, which are
unadaptable to gridiron perform-
A highlight of the program will be
the closing number, "Michigan Fan-
tasy" arranged by Donn Chown, for-
mer business manager of the band.

first performed by the Army Air
Force Band in England in 1945.
The other numbers on the program

'No Progress'
Conference Stalled by
Payroll Levy Demands
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, May 15 - With
coal negotiators deadlocked over the
UMW demand for a seven per cent
payroll levy, President Truman call-
ed another conference for tomorrow
morning in an effort to reach a speedy
solution to the coalmine controversy
Expectations of seeing a signed
contract from the negotiators were
dashed today when mine union chief
John L. Lewis and mine spokesman
Charles O'Neill came to a White
House afternoon conference empty-
handed. The 45-minute session today
produced nothing but a "no progress'
Reconversion director John W
Snyder declared the President would
take "every possible action" to pre.
vent a resumption of the soft coal
strike on the expiration of the tem-
porary truce May 25. The delay in
securing a settlement has caused
speculation about a new government
move to avert further striking.
Government conciliators had step-
ped in and halted the negotiations
between Lewis and the operators after
the latter flatly rejected the program
for a union-controlled health and
welfare fund to be financed by the
mine owners through a payroll levy
O'Neill and Lewis, leaving the
White House with solemn faces, had
no comment beyond saying that they
would be on hand tomorrow as the
President had requested.
The recess in the negotiations was
proposed by conciliators Edward F
McGrady and Paul W. Fuller. M-
Grady said lie would not call the

Draft Ban Wil
Not Affect VU
The ban on drafting of 'teen Age
youths will have no immediate effect
on the University's prospective en-
rollment for the fall semester, Regis-
trar, Ira M. Smith said yesterday.
Most 18 and 19-year olds who would
enter the University have already
applied for admission because of the
uncertainty of Selective Service Regu-
lations, Smith said.
He disclosed that 750 non-veteran
men have been tentatively admitted
to next year's freshman class.
The ban will have "no effect on us"
unless it is revoked later, Smith said.
The new draft bill, signed Tuesday
by President Truman, expires July 1.
Senate Moves
Against Strikes
By Public Labor
move to bar the door against strikes
by government workers today was
tossed into the midst of the Senate
battle over general labor legislation
It came from the appropriations
committee in a day bringing these
other developments:
1. The Senate Labor Committee
approved a resolution for an inves-
tigation of the causes of labor dis-
putes, including the "policies and
. practices" of unions and manage-
2. Senators' aides passed the word
that no voting is in prospect before
next week on the general labor bill
and proposed amendments aimed at
curbing unions
The Appropriations Committee
tacked onto the Agriculture Depart-
Sment appropriations bill a clause for-
biding employment by the depart-
Sment of anyone belonging to any or-
ganization which "asserts the right
to strike against the government.
Senator Russell (Dem., Ga.) told
reporters a similar provision would be
added to all future appropriations
bills. He said a new CIO govern-
ment workes union, recently formed
by merger of other unions, "claimed
the right to strike and at the same
time condemned the Americans and
the British for imperialistic policies
This group is the United Public
Workers of America.
Senators clamoring for enactmen
r of legislation to curb strikes and
"otherwise regulate union activities
viewed the labor committee's resolu-
1 tion for an inquiry into basic causes
for labor disputes as simply a device
e for stalling.

Numerous Proposals
Confront Committee
By The Associated Press
Senate Banking Committee voted
11 to 5 today for a year's extension
of OPA, then took a four-day recess
to enable members to prepare amend-
ments to the extension bill.
Chairman Wagner (Dem., N.Y.) ex-
pressed hope that all the amendments
will be presented by Monday, the
next meeting day, so they can be
voted upon Tuesday. He hopes to get
final committee action by the follow-
ing Friday and call the bill up in the
Senate May 27.
Not all members are convinced
that Wagner's schedule can be met,
in view of the wide differences of
opinion on vital elements of the
The present price control law ex-
pires June 30. The House voted for an
extension of only nine months, until
March 31, 1947, and amended it,
making the bill hardly more than a
chart for "a joyride toward economic
disaster." Price Administrator Paul
Porter declared it "amounts. to repeal
of price control."
While the extension vote was the
only one taken by the committee to-
day, numerous proposed changes
came under discussion. One of these
involved the best way to assure the
lifting of controls on items as they
come into ample supply.

emeritus of the University, has do-

lege of Physicians, it was announced
by the College last night from Phila-
Half of the donation will serve to.
provide a memorial to the late Dr.
Alfred Stengel, former vice-president
of the University of Pennsylvania.
The balance will be used to set up a
lectureship or award on preventive
medicine. Dr. Bruce, who retired in
1942, was president of the College
of Physicians in 1940.
1 The College also .announced the
award to discharged servicemen of 10
clinical and three research fellow-
ships, each worth $2,500 and for one
year's duration. One thousand fel-
lows were admitted to membership
in the College, the report declared.

"Your Mr. Gallup should conduct
a poll in China," suggested Dr.
Chengting Wang, visiting Chinese di-
plomat. "He'd find out that 90 per
cent of China's people don't want
Communism. Maybe 99 per cent!"

many years, is in Ann Arbor visit-

Communists," he asserted. "They al-

Commending Gen. Marshall's med-

clared that it is the duty of the United
States to "see to it that the situa-

The important thing, he empha-
sized, is that all nations support the
United Nations organization. "If they
don't," he predicted, "we can ex-
pect another war. And this one would
probably destroy us all."
The government has not yet de-
cided, Dr. Wang said, whether the
constitutional convention scheduled
for this summer will come off if the
Communists have not elected their
delegates. "1 hope the convention
will be held within three or four
months," he stated.
"What few people seem to real-
ize," Dr. Wang remarked, "is that

explained, can rule without the
