of "The Historical Background of Marriage" by Dr. Ernest G. Osborne of
Columbia University.
Maj. Sprague Gardner of the Army Medical Corps, formerly a member

Alteration 11i.
Representa ton
Is Announced
Student Plan Revised
To Simplify Elections
The committee for student repre-
sentation announced a change in
theirdCongress-Cabinet constitution
yesterday as interest in student gov-
ernment grew with the announcement
of all-campus elections April 9 and
Provided it is ratified in the campus
voting, the Congress-Cabinet will
elect only one-half of the congress
during the first semester under the
constitution revision.
The change was made to simplify
the first election, according to Bob
Taylor, chairman of the sponsoring
committee. Students at the all-cam-
pus election will select either the Con-
gress-Cabinet or Council Forum con-
stitutions for campus government.
The revised section in the Congress-
Cabinet constitution reads... "Art. 1,
Section 2: The Congress shall con-
sist of one representative for every
400 students, elected at large from the
entire student body by the Hare plan
of proportional representation. Elec-
tions shall be held once each semes-
ter; but only half of the Congress
shall be eleted at a time, and each
Congressman shall serve for two se-
mesters. The first Congress, elected
during the Spring Term, 1946, shall
consist of one representative for'every
800 students. At each subsequent
election, enough Congressmen shall
be elected to fill the quota of one for
every 400. A student may be elected
to the Congress even if he expects to
leave the University before complet-
ing his term of office."
Coeds Solieted
For Red Cross
Contributions To Be
Collected This Week
Contributions to the American Red
Cross drive will be collected in all
women's dormitories, sororities and
League houses this week.
Every woman in the organized
houses will be asked to contribute to
the fund although it is in no way
compulsory. "The committee suggests
that every woman give about one dol-
lar, but no individual or house quotas
have been set," Jean Gaffney, League
treasurer, explained. Last year Uni-
versity women were asked to contrib-
ute $1.25 each.
The house presidents of women's
residences are in charge of the col-
lections. Miss Gaffney announced
thatall lists and envelopes must be
turned in Tuesday at the League.
Funds derived from the annual
Red Cross membership drive finance
the activities of the American and
International Red Cross. The money
collected is used to finance emer-
gency services in time of disaster in
the United States and to help relieve
the suffering in foreign countries.
Folk Singer To
Present Recital
A program of Anglo-American folk
music will be presented by John Jacob
Niles, American folk singer, at 8:30
p.m. tomorrow in the Lydia Mendels-
sohn Theatre.
Niles, who accompanies himself on
dulcimers of his own making, will
sing American madrigals, ballads, and
street and work songs. His songs rep-
resent a collection of music handed
down to Americans by immigrants
from England, Scotland, Wales, and

Ireland. This music still lives in many
of the Southern states. He is a native
of Kentucky.

given by Dr. Lee Vincent, psycholo-
gist in the Merrill-Palmer School,
Detroit. She will discuss "Court-
lship and Pre-Marital Relations"
April 16 and "Psychological Ad-
justments in Marriage" April 23.
All lectures will begin at 8:15 p.m.
and will be given in Rackham Audi-

DETROIT, March 20 - Sweeping
six events and clipping a pair of pool
marks, Michigan's swimmers wound
up their dual meet season with a
one-sided 52-32 triumph over Wayne
University's outclassed naltators a'
Northwestern High Shaol's pool here
Minus the services of their former
NCAA champ, Bill Prew, the Tartars
offered little in the way of competi-
tion for Coach Matt Mann's crew.
Mann used his second stringers free-
ly in the individual events.
Medley Trio Beats Mark
Backstroker Bob Matters, breast-
stroker Bob Sohl and freestyle sprint-
er Charley Fries started the Wolver-
ines off on the right foot when they
took the opening 300-yard medley
relay in 3:02.2 to crack a six-year
old pool mark set by Wayne in 1940.
The other new record came in the
closing event when the Wolverines'
freestyle quartet of Charley Moss,
Dick Weinberg, Matt Mann III, and
Charley Fries churned the 400-yard
distance in 3:36.2 to knock over three
seconds off the old record set by a
Wolverine team in 1941.
Gardner Takes Diving
Bob Gardner of the Tartars lived
up to his publicity by upsetting
Michigan's duo of Ralph Trimborn
and Tommy O'Neil in the diving.
However, the Wolverine pair were
badly handicapped by a very low
ceiling which necessitated Trim-
born's "banking off" of it before
going into his dives.
In the 220-yard freestyle Mann
used Moss and Neville Adams. Moss
fought a close duel with his team-
mate and finally won in the com-
paratively slow time of 2:24. Adams
was an easy second over Wayne's
Doug Trites.
Michigan also finished one-two in
the 200-yard breaststroke when Soh
and Captain Heini Kessler finished
in that order. Weinberg took the
50-yard freestyle event for the Maize

Plant for Jordan
'Valley (Otutlit'.d
By Lowdermdk
Plans for construction of a "Jordan
Valley Athority," an irrigation and
power project in the Jordan Valley in
Palestine, were outlined by Dr. Wal-
ter C. Lowdermilk, assistant chief of
the United States Soil Conservation
Service, in his talk here last night.
Such a project would irrigate ap-
proximately 800,000 acres of first
class land and would help to support
4,000,000 more persons, Dr. Lowder-
milk said. He pointed out that it
would offer work to many refugees
and would demonstrate how lands in
neglected areas can be returned to
good condition.
The project, which would increase
productive acreage about ten times
and would take ten years to construct,
would cost approximately $245,000,-
000, Dr. Lowdermilk estimated. He
pointed out that the plan has been
engineered and is now being investi-
gated by the Anglo-American Author-
ity appointed by President Truman
and Prime Minister Attlee.

No peace or good will among men
is possible without adjustment of
people to the land, for hungry men
are dangerous, do not keep treaties
or stay within their boundaries, Dr.
Lowdermilk said yesterday in a
morning address before an assembly
of the School of Forestry and Con-
Dr. Lowdermilk described the co-
operative colonization centers in
Palestine whose badly abused land
has been brought back into produc-
tion and furnishes not only food but
the basis of a general economy.

Prof. Preston W. Slosson of the his-

secretary to a conference on interna-
tional control of the atomic bomb,
held at Rollins College. t
The group, which was composed of

gressmen and senators, came to the
unanimous agreement that no possi-
ble defense could be devised for the
atomic bomb, and that no secrets
could be kept for more than a few
Final decision of the conference

Reds Split on Date,

O-f rani8an Case Hearing

1 ~4
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, March 20-The
United States and Russia split to-
night on the question whether the
United Nations Security Council shall
give an early hearing to Iran's
charges against the Soviets.
Russia asked for a postponement
of the scheduled opening of the
council in New York, from next
Monday until April 10. Ambassa-
dor Andrei Gromyko wrote UNO
Secretary-General Trygve Lie that
the Soviet government needed time
to prepare its case.
Almost simultaneously Edward R.
Stettinius, Jr., American member of
the council, filed with Lie a request
that the Iranian case be placed "at
the head of the agenda"-in other
words, be given the quickest possible
American officials said that
when Stettinius made his request
on instructions of Secretary of
State Byrnes and presumably Pres-
ident Truman as well, he had not
known of the Soviet delay proposi-
tion. He expected and hoped that
the council would plunge into the
Iranian case Monday.
Iran has appealed to the Security
Council to help get Russian troops off
Iranian soil. The appeal charged that
the troops were in Iran in violation
of a written agreement and that So-
viet agents were interfering in Iran's
Both American officials and
aides on Lie's staff said that under
the United Nations Charter it
would take unanimous agreement
of the 11 members of the Council to
postpone the meeting.

Students Salute
Sudden Spring
Warm sun loosed the rites of spring1
on a winter-weary campus yesterday
as Old Man Winter packed his bag of,
tricks and huffed away just 24 hours
ahead of schedule.
The mild weather that made stud-;
ents and teachers all over campus
shed their topcoats was promised
again today by the weatherman who
predicted "Fair and Mild".
The appearance of Spring was
hailed on campus by everybody fromI
blue-leaned coeds to book-burdened
engineers. Coeds slowed in their
home-to-campus trot to draw a deep
breath, and engineers who had set-
tled into the semester grind realized
once more there was light and life
in the world.
The student population in general
soaked up sun on the steps of cam-
pus buildings and remembered it was
good to be alive.

entific Research and Development
during the war, Prof. Attwood re-
viewed the work done by U. S. scien-
tists and military personnel in con-
nection with the effect of atmosphere
on radio waves. Using blackboard
sketches he explained the propaga-
tion of radio waves from transmitter
to receiver through standard atmos-
phere; a sound film showed the char-
acteristics of non-standard propaga-

Calls Youth
Into Service
By The Associated Press
TEHRAN, March 20-Fighting be-
tween Kurdish tribesmen and the
Iranian army was reported by a gen-
eral staff officer today as the govern-
ment called 19-year olds to the colors
and arrested rightist deputy Said Zia
Ed-din, often described by political
writers as anti-Russian.
The officers said 3,000 tribesmen
had been atta'cking three isolated ar-
my garrisons for a week and that
Iranian planes were trying to prevent
the garrisons from being cut off from
their headquarters.
Disliked by Russians
Zia Ed-din was taken from his
home by two men in the uniform
of Iranian army colonels. As he sat
in the automobile of his captors he
told newsmen "I think they are ar-
resting me because I am not liked by
the Russians."
Prince Firouz, political undersec-
retary of state and director of pro-
paganda,'said the rightist leader was
arrested on orders of Premier Ahmed
Qavam Es Saltaneh and was being
"put under preventive detention
pending investigation of certain
Leftist Party Meeting
Meanwhile, leftist Tudeh party
leaders called a private meeting af-
ter it was announced that the govern-
ment had made a new appeal to the
United Nations Security Council
against the continued presence of
Soviet troops in Iran.
While the three Iranian garisons
held out against the Kurds, other
tribesmen were reported bythe gene-
ral staff officer to be fighting. with
"democrats" of Soviet-occupied Azer-
baijan Province.
The besieged garrisons were Sar-
dasht and Baneh, in northern Kurd-
istan province, and Sqqiz, on the
Azerbaijan - Kurdistan border - an
area adjacent to the semi-autono-
mous shiekdom of Ghazi Mohammed,
leader of a separatist Kurdish move-
ment at Saujbulagh.
Corwin Assails
Order Moving
112,000 Niesi
"The most drastic invasion of civil
rights evoked during the war was the
executive proclamation which order-
ed the moving of more than 112,000
Japanese-Americans from their West
Coast homes," 'Professor Edward
Samuel Corwin said yesterday in the
third of a series of William W. Cook
lectures on "Total War and The Cn-
Mr. Corwin, speaking on "The Im-
pact of Total War on Constitutional
Rights," pointed out that two-thirds
of the persons affected by the order
were natural born American citizens,
and said that there had been no evi-
dence that Japanese Americans had
been involved in sabotage in the Phil-
ippines, Hawaii and the West coast
area. "The move was the most dras-
tic invasion of rights of citizens of
the United States by their own go-
vernment that has thus far occurred
in the history of our nation."
Private Rights Reduced
In an earlier portion of the lecture
Prof. Corwin dealt with the change
in attitude regarding private rights
during war time. During World War
I, he said, a compromise theory
arose to the effect that private
rights are not automatically suspend-
ed, but may be reduced, "sometimes
to the vanishing point."
He said that he believes legislative

curtailment of the right of the courts
to review action by Congress is a
World War II development that may
not be confined to war time.
Precedent Set
The war-time basis for this curtail-
ment is seen, he said, in the Emer-
gency Price Control Act of 1942.
Following the lecture, Prof. Corwin
was the guest of the Lawyer's Club
for dinner and an informal forum
with law students.
Today's lecture, fourth in the
series, will be on "Total Peace and
E The Constitution" at 4.15 n m in
