the announcement, said that the
Willow Run food service "will fol-

tice at the Michigan Union and the
League, which are also under Uni-

teria had been operated for more
than a year by Noel Burns and
Edward Onifke, on a concession
from the University.
Service in the cafeteria, in re-
gard to food quality and prepara-
tion, cleanliness and cost had long
constituted a major bone of con-
tention among Village residents.
Complaints Initiate Action
There were complaints regis-
tered last fall which were brought
to the attention of University au-
thorities by the Village AVC, who
in turn brought it to the attention
of. the operators. And a survey
conducted last month by the AVC
revealed that the residents were
still very much dissatisfied with
the cafeteria.
An 11-man committee headed by
William A. Klein III compiled,
from their fellow Villagers, a list
of grievances which were submit-
ted to the University authorities.
The University itself had sent a
representative to investigate as
well. Finally, it was announced
that the University would take
over the cafeteria on June 30.

WASHINGTON, May 5-Stand-

eration of Telephone Workers to-
night mapped disciplinary action
against two Chicago affiliates
which accepted $4 weekly increas-
Meanwhile Federal conciliators

The NFTW policy committee
gave no details of the proposed
disciplinary action beyond saying
that it was discussed.
However Joseph A. Beirne, Pres-
ident, told newsmen he will rec-
ommend to the June convention
in Miami Beach, Fla., that the
heads of the two unions be ex-
pelled. They are Richard W.
Long, President of the Federation
of Telephone Clerks of Illinois,
and Edwin R. Hackett, President
of the Commercial Telephone
Workers Union.
'Strong As Ever'
Beirne declared the strike is
"just as strong as ever." He add-
ed that "the fact that some people
signed agreements and then had
the audacity to cross picket lines
and call themselves union leaders
does not dent the solidarity of
the NFTW."
In Chicago, Long said in a state-
ment: "For three weeks the Fed-
eration of Telephone Clerks of Ill-
inois followed Joe Beirne cf the
blind alley of national bargaining
and last week he publicly an-
nounced that all unions could bar-

On Program
No Vote Is Expected
D1uring Rest of Term
The Athletic Department's pro-
posed program for three years of
required physical education given
for credit received a set-back yes-
terday when the Engineering Col-
lege faculty voted to "make no
change in the present organiza-
This action follows by one
month the favorable decision of
the School of Education, which
voted April 30 to adopt a two-year
program for four hours of aca-
demic credit.
The literary college faculty also
met yesterday, but did not dis-
cuss the proposals.
Assistant Dean Walter Em-
mons of the engineering college
said that three main objections
prompted the faculty to vote
unfavorably. Most important of
all, he declared, was the fact
that no satisfactory schedules
could be worked out which
would be in harmony with the
extensive afternoon and even-
ing laboratory sessions now re-
quired by the engineering de-
Another drawback, he declared,
was the difficult position in which
such a program would place the
many students who must take
part-time work outside school to
finance their college education.
Whe hours devoted to physical ed-
ucationwould come on top of the
great amount of time, arleady
spent on classes, studying, and
their work, he added.
In the third place, Dean Em-
inons said, if the college gave
credit for the physical education
courses taken by its students, the
hours required for graduation
would have to be increased pro-
"In general," he said, "the
engineering college faces a much
more difficult problem than do
the other schools in trying to
adopt such a physical educa-
tion program as has been pro-'
Any action by the literary col-
lege in regard to the program
in the near future appears a din
prospect. Dean Hayward Keni-
ston declared yesterday that a
decision will "probably not be
made for the rest of the semester."
A motion was passed at the fac-
ulty meeting last month to post-
pone action on the program "in-
deffilitely." Dean Keniston said
that at the time the faculty was
"not in a position to make any
definite proposals."
The proposed three-year phy-
;iciAl education plan is the re-
suit of two years' work by a spe-
cijal committee established by
Athletic Director H. O. Crisler in
1944. Headed by J. Kenneth Do-
herty and Laurie E. Campbell, the
committee made its recommenda-
tions early in 1945.

Directed by Prof. Charles E.

department, the play is Moliere's
most virulent satire, and deals with
the medical practices and inade-

tury. Argan, the leading role, was
