U' Radio Director Predicts
Improved College Programs

The allocation7 of certain FM
radio bands for the exclusive use
of educational stations "will large-
ly correct the criticisms of pre-
sent broadcasting brought out by
the Hutchins committee," Prof.
Waldo Abbott, director of the Uni-
Gift Donations
Of $76044
Are Accepted
(Continued from Page 1)
the Board of Regents showed that
loans totaling $64,731.50 . were
granted to 535 students during the
1945-46 school year. This was an
increase of $34,432.08 and 276 stu-
dents over the amount of loans
and number of students for the
previous year. The increase, ac-
cording to the report, resulted
mainly from 4emporary loans
made to veterans to enable them to
pay their current expenses while
awaiting delayed subsistence
Memorial Fund
Gifts accepted by the Board of
Regents included $1,000 from
Edith J. Smith, Ann Arbor, to con-
stitute the Elizabeth A. Smith Me-
morial Loan Fund.
The late 'Elizabeth Smith was,
for 17 years, in charge of student
employment in the office of the
Dean of Students. Outright grants
way be made from the loan fund
to men students in any unit of
the University without restric-
Edward S. Rogers, of New York
city, and Grover C. Grismore, pro-
fessor of law at the University,
were reappointed as members of;
the Board of Governors of the;
Lawyers Club.
Unexpired Terms
Mrs. Catherine Kelder Walz and
Mrs. Margaret Lawlor Waterman,
both of Ann Arbor, were appoint-
ed to fill unexpired terms of mem-
bers of the Board of Governors
of the Michigan League.
Prof. William Frankena was ap-
pointed a member of the Board of
Governors of the Student Re-
ligious Association to fill the un-
expired term of Erich A. Walter,
director of the Office of Student
Affairs, who has been made an
ex-officio member of the board. I

versity Broadcasting Service, said
Commenting on the report of
a committee of educators headed
by Robert M. Hutchins, president
of the University of Chicago, which
condemned commercial radio for
its lack of service to the public,
Prof. Abbott generally affirmed
their conclusions and emphasized
that if the new educational FM
stations can develop their pro-
grams to the technical level of
commercial radio, they will force
commercial broadcasters to im-
prove the quality of their adver-
tising and programs in order to
keep their listening audiences.
Prof. Abbott also stressed that
FM educational stations wM serve
a different function from the coni-
mercial AM and FM stations.
"While commercial radio tries to
appeal to the mass listening audi-
ence, educational FM will complY
with the demands of a large min-
ority of the listening audience."
He expressed doubt that the
Government has seriously interfer-
ed with freedom of speech on the
radio, as charged in the report of
the committee, and said that any
interference with free expression
by radio commentators was more
likely done by the sponsor. "In
fact," he asserted, "the FCC,
through its regulations requiring
commercial stations to allot equal
time to both sides of a controver-
sial issue, actually contribute to
greater freedom of speech."
Glee Club Will
Give Concert
The University Women's Glee
Club under the direction of Prof.

morrow in the Union Ballroom.

Four Houses
Contribute to
heifer Irive.
Contributions for the "Hifers
for Europe" drive now in progress
were received yesterday from Chi-
cago House, Victor Vaughanj
House, Hamilton House and Uni-
versity House, according to Sey-
mour S. Goldstein, president of
the University Famine Committee
which is sponsoring the drive.
Any campus organization which
has not already contributed to
the drive may mail or bring its
donation to the Famine Commit-
tee at Lane Hall. If it is unable to
do this,- a representative of the
committee will pick it up.
Money collected during the cam-
paign will be used to purchase
two-year-old heifers which will
be shipped to needy European
farmers. The campus drive is part
of a nation-wide movement spon-
sored by the Brethren Service
Committee to help the people of
Europe to help themselves.
At the end of 1946, more than
4,000 heifers had been sent by the
national organization to Belgium,
Czechoslovakia, France, Greece,
Italy, Poland and China.
The Heifer Drive is one of the
five all-campus charity drives ap-
proved by the Student Legislature.

of this one experiment must be
considered only in the light of
the particular student group in-
volved and the fact that the whole
intent of the experiment was to
discover just what the experi-
menters must look and plan for
in future experiments. The in-
terpretations of the facts in this
particular case must be considered
as merely a preview of what may
be revealed in more exhaustive
experiments, he pointed out.
Questions Used


Example of the tentative theo-
ries which were discovered in this
experiment may be seen that on
the question, "Life can be satis-
fying without many spiritual ex-
periences," Catholic students were
more likely to disagree when they
were with their particular group
and had been discussing matters
pertaining to Catholicism than
when they were in an ordinary
classroom situation, while they
were more apt to agree with the
questions, "We should be very
slow to adopt legislation which in-
terferes with parents' judgment
as to education or employmcnt of
their children," and "One of the
things wrong with this country
is that so many Americans have
ceased to have any strong sense
of right and wrong."
Among Own Faith
Members of the Prote stav t
churches were more inclined to
agree with the following quie; i io
when they were in a group of the i
own faith than when they were
scattered among other students:
"The ultimate nature of man and
of morals is a matter of faith
rather than of scientific demon-
stration," and they were more
likely to disagree with "People
who believe that they can get an-
swers directly from God usually
mistake their own opinions for
divine will."
Jewish students in the Jewiish
group tended to agree with the
statement that "Minority groups
in America can make their best

cultural contribution by merging
themselves completely with the
rest of our society" and with "The
British government s h o u ld be
forced to turn over to the United
Nations the countries which it
governs by mandate."
Church _Guilds
To Hold Social
Members of the Roger Williams
Guild and the Congregational-
Disciples Guild will hold a joint
