Vets' Suggestions for Changes
At 'U' Revealed by Daily Poll

two felt that there was "too much
juvenilism" in the social life of the
Three veterans complained that
there is nothing to do on Sundays.
One suggested "more things like
May Festival," one was in favor
of disbanding fraternities and one
found the social atmosphere of the
Twenty-six married veterans an-
swered questions concerning their
wives. Five of them felt there was
nothing more that the University
could do for wives of veterans. Two
suggested better housing and two
recommended evening bus service.
One veteran each suggested that
there be baby sitters at Willow Run,
a nursery school, women's clubs and
better treatment for veterans' wives
who are employed by the University.
In answer to questions regarding
counseling needs, 18 of the 100
veterans suggested the need for
more academic advisers and twelve
the need for more guidance service
to help with occupational plans and
general problems. Eight of the
veterans felt that vocational guid-
ance facilities are insufficiently
publicized, four others declaring
that more vocational information
should be made available. That aca-
demic advisers be specially trained
was suggested by four of the vet-
These suggestions refer only to
specific recommendations made by
the veterans, many of whom did not
have specific suggestions concern-
ing teaching and curriculum. Com-
ments on University women were
made by only 69 of the 100 veterans,
while only 14 of the 26 married vet-
erans had suggestions to make re-
garding their wives.

Charged to Kim Sigler
Lt. Gov. Vernon J. Brown, one of
the four candidates for the-Republi-
can nomination for governor, blasted
his three opponents last night in a
prepared address delivered at the Ma-
Speaking at a dinner in his honor,
sponsored by the county Brown-for-
governor committee, Brown asserted
that the present administration was
nominated by the rank and file in
an unbossed convention. Singling out
his opponents, Brown charged them
bluntly with inability to execute the
office of governor.
"One is a long-time Democrat re-
cently converted. One never had any
political affiliation. The third has
been too busy until now to take any
part in party affairs. He is a hitch-
hiker who now insists on taking the
Brown charged one candidate "was
corporation counsel for the notorious
Dick Reading city hall gang that
took everything but the Detroit River
a few years ago." Another, he said,-
"having remained an unbeliever all-
these years, he now suddenly gets
party religious and already wants the
job of being the bishop.
The third, Brown said, was Demo-
cratic prosecutor of Barry County
25 years ago, was prominent in-
State Democratic circles later, and
in 1928 ran on the Democratic ticket
for attorney general. "Now we find
him wanting to be our Republican
nominee for governor. There isn't
anything about the present Republi-
can Party or any of its doings he
likes - he has said so emphatically
many times. Still he wants to be
the chief of our tribe."

port as higher education approaches
a five-year perioduof misunderstand-
ing due in part to the inevitable dis-
appointment and disillusion of the
overcrowded years ahead," Avirett
said. "There is an earnest desire here
to have the actual work of the Uni-
versity interpreted without bally-hoo
so that the public can make up its
mind with adequate information."
The cooperation of the press and
radio is essential if the facts are to
reach the general public, he pointed
out. Irresponsible journalism has no
place in this serious undertaking.
In the New York press, according
to Avirett, there is a growing interest
in both news and editorial comment
on education, and this interest is
shared increasingly by the news ma-
gazines. This is not a nation-wide
trend as yet, he emphasized, but in-
evitably the public need for respon-
sible interpretation of educational
news will increase the amount of
space devoted, both in the news and
The greatest difficulty, he added,
is that careful interpretation of edu-
cational policies and developments is
not yet news in the strictest sense of

Sends Food Abroad
The Canterbury Club collection of
food for European relief has netted
a total of more than 1300 cans of
food, it was announced yesterday.
The cans have been collected from
members of the club, the student or-
ganization of St. Andrew's Episcopal
Church, and in dormitories and sor-
ority and fraternity houses. They will
be shipped to Europe in the near
The collection was presented at
the altar of St. Andrew's Church at
the 11 a.m. service Sunday.
A contribution of $300 was made to
the campus famine relief drive by
the Lawyers' Club as a result of a
plea made before that club by one of
the Episcopal students.

Slain in Boston

Walks to Freedom
BOSTON, June 10-UP)-William
A. Whitcomb, 73, wealthy president
of the Great Northern Paper Com-
pany, was slain today in a downtown
bank building by a well-dressed gun-
man who nonchalantly walked down
eight flights with briefcase under
arm to escape in busy street crowds.
Whitcomb was found lying face
downward in his private office on the
eighth floor of the Boston Safety
Deposit and Trust Company building
in the heart of the business district
with three bullets in his body.
Absence of Motive
Detectives, admittedly baffled in
the absence of a motive, studied an
unsigned contract involving $25,000
that lay on Whitcomb's desk in hope
that it might lead to a clue to the
killer, who posed as a government
A dozen secretaries and other com-
pany executives in an outer office
saw the slayer calmly emerge from
Whitcomb's office with gun still in
hand and walk out. They were so
stunned that before an alarm could
be sounded he had disappeared. No
weapon was found.
The slayer was described as between
40 and 45 years, wearing a grey suit
and panama hat.
Giving his name as "Mr. Homan
from the Treasury Department," the
gunman easily gained admittance
to the paper manufacturer's private
office and was there only about seven
First indication that something was
wrong came when the slayer walked
out of Whitcomb's office with gun
openly in hand, Police Supt. Edward
W. Fallon said.
