THE ICHIGCAN DATI-y

CELL SECRETION-
Dr. Baker Receives Henry
Russel Award for Research

Dr. Burton L. Baker, assistant
professor of anatomy at the Medi-
cal School, has received the an-
nual Henry Russel Award for his
research on cell secretion.
The award, which is given to a
faculty member with the rank of
assistant professor or instructor,
was presented by President Alex-
ander G. Ruthven in a brief cere-
mony held in the Regents' Room
in Angell Hall.
Lecture Postponed
Traditionally presen ted at the
time of the Henry Russel Lecture,
the award was made separately
this year because of the lecture's
postponement until fall. The lec-
ture is to be given by Prof. De-
Witt H. Parker, chairman of the
philosophy department, now ab-
sent on leave.
Perspectives Deadline
Sch&duled for May 16
Deadline for articles for the
forthcoming issue of Perspectives,
student literary magazine, has
been set for Friday, May 16.
Poetry, short stories, essays and
short one-act plays will be accept-
ed by the magazine. Hopwood en-
tries may be submitted without
affecting qualifications for prizes,
according to Margery Wald, edi-
tor.

The lectureship is awarded each
year, on nomination of the Uni-
versity Research Club, to the fac-
ulty member adjudged to have at-
tained the highest distinction in
the field of scholarship. Both the
award and the lectureship are
made possible through a bequest
of the late Henry Russel, '75L.
Cell Chemistry
Dr. Baker's research has dealt
with the microscopic structure
and the internal chemistry of
cells, especially in relation to their
secretory activity. The general ob-
jective of his investigations has
been to determine more precisely
the role which the individual cells
of the reproductive glands ulay
in the control of reproductive ac-
tivities and other body functions.
One phase of Dr. Baker's re-
search now being pursued involves
collaboration with Dr. Dwight J.
Ingle of the Upjohn Company's
research staff, under a grant from
the Upjohn Company. In this
work an attempt is being made to
determine the manner in which
the adrenal cortex influences the
structure of the body.
Dr. Baker is a member of Gam-
ma Sigma Delta fraternity, the
Association for the Study of In-.
ternal Secretions, and the Ameri-
can Association of Anatomists.

Talk To End
Campaign
Marvin Lowenthal, journalist
and author recently returned from
Palestine, will discuss "Palestine
and the Political Scene" at 8 p.m.
Monday in Rackham Amphithea-
tre.
He is known to radio audiences
as a chairman on the C.B.S. "In-
vitation to Learning."
Lowenthal's talk will climax an
"Action for Palestine" campaign
being held on campus this week by
the Intercollegiate Zionist Federa-
tion of America.
Petitions directing the President
to take action to achieve the pro-
gram for Palestine which he and
Congress "have repeatedly enunci-
ated" are being circulated in dor-
mitories, league houses and on
campus.
IRA Urges Action
By UN on Palestine
The Inter-Racial Association
urged "immediate and positive ac-
tion" by the UN on Palestine in a
statement issued yesterday.
The text of the statement reads:
"We believe there is a critical con-
dition in Palestine which imposes
martial law on the land, deports
suffering humans to concentra-
tion camps, and germinates fric-
tion between the two groups.
"Therefore we request that the
American delegation to the United
Nations Assembly pursue the pres-
ent investigation to its logical end
and urge immediate and positive
action which will remove the
sources of conflict and be binding
on all the parties concerned."

LAST-MINUTE SUGGESTIONS

Gr'oup AIMS
To Stop Penal
Law Change
Prevention of a return to the
spoils system in the administra-
tion of state penal institutions
will be the first objective of the
newly organized Michigan Correc-
tions Association, according to
Prof. A. E. Woou o the sogiology
department.
Prof. Wood was recently elected
president of the organization,
which is a private group of inter-
ested citizens.
Protest Proposals
The Association was organized
to protest proposed changes in the
present State Corrections Act
which would remove administra-
tive officials from civil service and
place the positions under politi-
cal control, Prof. Wood said.
Under the present law the State
Department of Corrections is ad-
ministered by a five member com-
mission appointed by the gover-
nor. No more than three members
of the commission may be mem-
bers of the same party. These men
appoint a director of corrections,
who must be a trained penologist,
and he appoints the heads of the
various departments. The struc-
ture is designed to be as profes-
sional and non-political as possi-
ble, Prof. Wood said.
Political Control
Proposed changes in the act
would place the Department of
Corrections under a politically ap-
pointed three man board and re-
sult in turningthe administration
over to politicians, he added.
The association will ask for a
hearing before the Senate Judi-
ciary Committee, to which the bill
has been referred for considera-
tion.
Student Gven
Misston Grant
Dawn Saari, member of Mortar
Board, Senior Society and the
student council of the Student Re-
ligious Association, recently was
awarded the New York City Mis-
sion Scholarship for training in
Christian Service.
The scholarship, which consists
of a grant of $1,200 for twelve
months' study and is renewable for
a second year at the discretion of
the Scholarship Committee, will
enable Miss Saari to combine prac-
tical experience in city church
work with post-graduate study in
one of New York's educational in-
stitutions.
The New York City Mission So-
ciety, which offers the scholarship,
is an undenominational religious
organization which carries on a
varied program of work in the
zity.
