Statewide Survey Reveals
Shortage of Hospital Beds

A statewide shortage of hospital
beds, extremely serious and especial-
ly prevalent in the Detroit area, has
been revealed in a report on the sur-
vey conducted by the American Hos-
pital Association.
Commenting on the report, Her-
bert P. Wagner, business manager
of University Hospital, said that in
Genessee County alone, even after
completion of a new 160-bed hos-
pital, there will be a shortage of
230 beds.
The report on Michigan, first of
the states tg be covered in a nation-
wide survey, was hailed at the group's
convention in Philadelphia last week
as being one of the most outstanding
pieces of work throughout the hospi-
tal field in the country.
Attempts to remedy the situation
are being carried out by about 12
local community building projects,
Wagner said, and hospitals are also
receiving federal aid for building pro-
grams under the federal bill 5191
Hillel Offers
Scholarship in
Dental Study
Interested and qualified students
have been invited by the B'nai B'rith
Hillel Foundation to apply for the
Muriel S. Kleinwaks Memorial Den-
tal Scholarship which has recently
been established at the University.
The Scholarship provides tuition
expenses for one year for a student
now in attendance at the University
School of Dentistry. It is subject to
renewal. In awarding the scholarship
scholastic achievement, need and in-
terest in Jewish communal and insti-
tutional life will be considered.
The scholarship has been estab-
lished by friends of the late Muriel S.
Kleinwaks who lost her life in an au-
tomobile crash last year when return-
ing to her home in New Jersey. Miss
Kleinwaks was in attendance at the
School of Dentistry.
Judges who will award the Schol-
arship include Rabbi Herschel Ly-
mon, Director of the Hillel Founda-
tion, Dr. Saul Cohen of the physiology
department and Dr. William Haber of
the economics department.

scholarship may obtain application

trast with his previous defense of
ceilings, caused a stir among the re-
Refuse to Affirm
Questioning turned to other mat-
ters and then returned to the meat
question when a reporter asked
whether the President "refused to
affirm" his position for retention of
meat ceilings, which he enunciated
emphatically at another session with
reporters just two weeks ago.
The answer to the question was a
negative and Mr. Truman added that
he had no comment to make at this
The President also declined to
comment when asked whether he be-
lieves that public "dissatisfaction"
over the meat shortage is "likely to be
reflected" in the November congres-
sional elections.
The Chief Executive indicated that
he might sit in at the second session
of officials canvassing the meat sit-

which allots $370,000,000 to United
States hospitals for a five year period.
Interpreting the report the re-
searchers said that the smallest hos-
pital which could be self-sufficient-
that is maintain adequate diagnostic
and laboratory facilities-would need
at least 100 beds. Smaller communi-
ties can use smaller hospitals, but,
they stressed, should have an active
working contact with a larger hospi-
tal. University hospital could be cited
as an example of this type of work,
he continued, as it works in a con-
sulting capacity with physicians
throughout the state.
Small communities working to-
gether to support one central hos-
pital was also proposed, but, Wag-
ner said, each community naturally
prefers to operate its own hospital.
For example, lie indicated the re-
cent unsuccessful attempt to com-
bine hospitals in Benton Harbor
and St. Joseph.
Another suggestion in the report
was a plan for establishing medical
centers in outlying residential dis-
trictu, which would be conducted
along the lines of out-patient serv-
The questionnaires, more than a
hundred pages long, were returned
from 439 hospitals throughout the
state who have a combined total of
50,000 beds.
The survey in Michigan was con-
ducted under the direction of Dr. A.
C. Bachmeyer, of the University of
Teachers. To Be
Trained Upstate
In Field! Course
The School of Education is offer-
ing a field course in the Upper Penin-
sula for those teachers who wish to
keep abreast with newer viewpoints,
recent trends, and present problems
in selected areas of instruction.
The course is designed to provide
for an effective tie-up between edu-
cational theory and practice, and to
stimulate a genuine desire on the part
of the teacher to grow professionally
by working on real problems in his
own school or classroom.
Members of the staff of the educa-
tion school spend a week in the Up-
per Peninsula teaching in instruc-
tion centers at Escanaba, Houghton,
Iron Mountain, Ishpeming, Ironwood,
and Sault Ste. Marie.
Representative of the educators
participating in the field course are
Mr. and Mrs. Fred Jeffers, registered
in the section at Houghton. Jeffers is
Superintendent of Schools at Paines-
dale, and Mrs. Jeffers is Principal of
the high school. Faculty members
testify that the presence of the couple
have a stimulating effect in the class,
as both Mr. and Mrs. Jeffers par-
ticipate actively in the discussions
and try to keep up with changes in
educational thought.

Lawyer's Guild
Hears Lecture
By Judge Jayne
The judge has always been the "re-
pository of protection" for the indi-
vidual against the "vengeance of the
mob," Ira Waite Jayne, executive
judge of the Wayne County Circuit
Court told the student chapter of
the National Lawyers' Guild here last
Judge Jayne asserted that a repre-
sentative of the court should be pres-
ent at all third degree hearings in
order to guarantee that the individ-
ual's civil rights will not be violated
by the police.
Ernest Goodman, assistant attor-
ney for the UAW-CIO, said that since
1937, when the Supreme Court was
reconstituted, the 14th amendment
had been reinterpreted so as to pro-
vide protection for the individual
rather than vested interests.

The private investment of foreign
capital in the economic development
of.the Far East should do much to en..
courage orderly political development
and restrain nationalism there, Prof.
Charles F. Remer of the economics
department said yesterday.
Wellesly Conference
Speaking at a conference at Welles-
ley College sponsored by the Mayling
Soong Foundation Prof. Remer said
that "orderly political development
in the Far East requires that the Far
Eastern countries be offered the eco-
nomic means of satisfying their po-
litical and psychological aspirations.
It is therefore in the general inter-
est of the United States that Ameri-
can investment in the Far East be
Inter-governmental loans and eco-
nomic measures, possible through ac-
tions of various United Nations agen-
cies, will aid the economic advance-
ment of China, Japan, Burma, the
East Indies, and other Far Eastern
areas, Prof. Remer continued, but
there is still a big need for private
Advantages Told
The great advantage of private in-
vestment, he said, is that it "brings
capital, managerial skill and techni-
cal experience into an undeveloped
country in one bundle." An inter-
governmental loan is not usually ac-
companied by any requirement that
the borrower demonstrate technical
efficiency in his use of borrowed
Although the Far East is now in po-
litical turmoil, the United States
cannot afford to wait until political
stability has been achieved for eco-
nomic rehabilitation. Prof. Remer'
said. Political peace waits upon eco-
nomic well-being, he said.
"It is of especial importance that

this country aid the economic devel-
>pment of China," Prof. Remer em-
phasized China i t heheat and
,enter of the Far East. The poverty
of the great body of the Chinese peo-
ple is a great potential political dan-
ger to us," he concluded.

Long sought for changes to liber-
alize the National Service Life In-
surance benefits have been made ef-
fective by recent legislation accord-
ing to the Veterans Administration.
Among the changes which increase
the advantages of NSLI are the
elimination of restrictions on bene-
ficiaries, the establishment of three
types of endowment policies, provis-
ion for various modes of settlement
including lump sum payments to
beneficiaries, and the payment of
benefits to insured veterans who are
totally disabled.

"University of Michigan chapter of

making every effort to obtain seats
for patients at your hospital. We will
inform you as soon as we have posi-

Several student offers of tickets
had been refused by The Daily up to
8 p.m. yesterday in line with the ath-
letic board's earlier ruling, but one
student asked The Daily editors to
hold his ticket "just in case."

Life and Endowment Policies
In addition to the old 20- and 30-
