Elimination of Price Control
Is Advocated by Michener

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the third of
a series of articles on the principal
local candidates of all political parties
in the coming election.
Earl C. Michener, Republican can-
didate for Congress from this district,
has served twenty-six years in Con-
gress, from 1918 to 32 and from
1934 to the present. He is the ranking
ninority member of the Housee Ju-
diciary Committee and number two
Republican on the important Rules
Rep. Michener attributes the pres-
ent meat shortage to a lack of pro-
duction, and adds that we will not
have production if producers have to
produce at a loss under OPA ceil-
Voted Revised OPA
Michener voted-for the revised OPA
bill last June and claims that the
amendments, which President Tru-
man said would weaken OPA, merely
recognized the profit system and were
an attempt to relax controls gradu-
ally. The country, he said, was
thrown into chaos by President Tru-
man's veto of the bill. Once the con-
Lecture Series
Will Open With
.rnall Speech
Gov. Ellis Arnall of Georgia, who
will speak at 8:30 p.m. Thursday in
Hill Auditorium under the auspices
of the Oratorical Association, has
"done more to extend the franchise
than any other American since wo-
men were given the vote," according
to Clark Foreman of the New Re-
Under Arnall's leadership, in Aug-
ust of 1943, Georgia became the first
state to lower the voting age to 18.
The constitutional amendment was
ratified by a popular vote of more
than two to one. Accepting the val-
idity of the argument favoring the
vote for those who are old enough
"to fight and die for their country,"
Arnall believes that young people
should be given the opportunity to
exercise their citizenship at the earli-
est possible time.
In January, 1944, Georgia was first
again in progressive voting legisla-
tion with a soldier-vote measure. In
response to Arnall's plea a bill was'
enacted to ease requirements and
eliminate obstacles in voting by Geor-
gia's citizens in service.
In February, 1945, Arnall and
Georgia were once again in the na-
tional spotlight on a franchise issue.
At a joint legislative session, the
Governor declared that the poll tax
must go, and that if it were not elim-
inated by legislation he would do so
by executive order. The legislature
then repealed the poll tax.
The Southern leader, who has been
mentioned for important federal
posts when his term as governor ex-
pires, will speak Thursday on the
topic, "The South Looks Forward."
Music Club Will Meet
The Gilbert and Sullivan Club will
meet at 7 p.m. tomorrow in tne
League, Gloria Katlan, president,

rols went off, he added, it was di-
ficult to restore them. He now be-
lieves, therefore, that price control
;hould be done away with completely.
* At the time OPA was being dis-
:ussed in Congress, he said he re-
ceived bundles of postcards from vet-
crans in Ann Arbor favoring a strong
OPA. Hetrealized, however, that they
were part of a campaign sponsored
by the American Veterans Committee.
Meanwhile, letters from the rest of
the district seemed to be mostly
against price control as advocated
by Chester Bowles.
On Labor's Obligations
Rep. Michener believes that labor
disputes should be settled by com-
promise and cooperation. He says
that he would never vote to repeal
the unions right to collective bar-
gaining, but he does believe that a
contract, once made by labor and
management, was not only a legal
document but also implied a moral
obligation on the part of both. Once
giant industrial corporations had the
country by the throat but now, he
said, labor has become the giant.
Michener was in the group that
drafted the Congressional reorgani-
zational bill. When Congress recon-
venes he said that some congressmen
who would lose their committee posi-
tions would try to scrap it. Michener
promised to make the best fight he
could for the bill.
Michener is strongly in favor of
FEPC and anti-poll tax laws abut
says they would never get through
Congress until they end filibustering
in the Senate.
Opposes Health Bill
He is opposed to the Wagner-Mur-
ray-Dingell national health insur-
ance bill as now written. "There
should be better facilities for the
caring of the sick, but the solution is
not in collectivism," he said.
A veteran of the Spanish American
War, Michener is for the Army-Navy
merger bill and believes that we must
have an adequate army.
Michener supports our present for-
eign policy and opposes Henry Wal-
lace on the ground that he does not
believe the "philosophy of appeasing
Russia" is right. He added that
there was no question that Russia
wanted to dominate the world, and
that European domination was only
the first step.
Rep. Michener is hesitant about the
United States being implicated in the
Palestine question. "If the prime
minister of Great Britain were to
demand that a given number of an
alien race be admitted to the United
States, I'm wondering what our peo-
ple would say." He added that he
himself was opposed to any change in
our immigration laws until our econ-
omy becomes more stable.
Wants Communists Exposed.
Michener voted for the continua-
tion of the Committee on Un-Ameri-
can Activities, whose purpose he said
was chiefly to exppse and publicize
Communists to prevent them from
getting into public office.
The 69 year old legislator styles
himself as a "progressive conserva-.
tive." He is a graduate of George
Washington University, which was
called Columbian U. at the time he
graduated. He practiced law before
entering Congress but now devotes
his full time to representing the sec-
ond district in Congress.

Students Will
Begin Work on
Flint Project
Seven Grads To Study
Typical City Problems
Seven graduate students of the
University, under the direction of
Victor Roterus of Cincinnati, will be-.
gin work today on the Social Science
Research Project in Flint.
Study Problems
Studying the social, ,political and
economic problems facing the typi-
cal urban community, the group will
work on problems such as the city
manager plan, effects of the 15 mill
tax limitation on the quality of mu-
nicipal services, and relocation of
industries and population into sub-
urban communities. The primary
purpose of the research to be done
in Flint is to serve as a "laboratory"
for student training and will be used
by graduate students in the Metro-
politan Community Seminar as well
as those working under fellowships.
Traveling expense funds are avail-
able for graduate students wishing to
do research work in Flint.
The fellowships for the Flint re-
search were granted to Eugene C.
Martinson, of Detroit; Robert Smith,
Port Huron; Marian E. Dunlap, of
Wayne; John F. Kantney, Somerset,
Pa.; Robert Schmitt, Cincinnati, 0.;
Nolan Heiden, Grand Rapids; and
Isadore Hughes, formerly of the Uni-
versity of South Carolina.
New Director
Victor Roterus, resident director of
the University of Michigan Social
Science Research Project in Flint, will
come to Flint after approximately 14
years work in teaching and research
in the socio-economic field. A grad-
uate of the University of Chicago, he
served from 1936 to 1938 on the re-
search staff of the Tennessee Valley
Authority and later worked with the
National Research Planning Board.
- During the war he was employed
by the War Production Board and in
1944 went to Cincinnati on a research
assignment from the City Planning
Hillel Players
Plan Tryouts
The Hillel Players of the B'nai
B'rith Hillel Foundation will hold
meetings for tryouts talented in sing-
ing, dancing and specialty acts or
emcees at 7 p.m. tomorrow and at
4:30 p.m. Friday at the Foundation.
The Players, who entertain at
functions at the Foundation, also
present variety shows at B'nai B'rith
Lodges in neighboring areas. Last
year the group entertained at lodges
in Detroit, Jackson and Grand Rap-
ids, as well as in Ann Arbor.
Smoker for Ex-Scouts
Alpha Phi Omega, national service
fraternity, will hold a rushing smoker
at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in the Union
for all men who are or were scouts or
scouters and are interested in joining
a campus service organization.
Officers elected for the fall semes-
ter are Sidney Zilbur, president; Nor-
man Rydland, vice president; Gilbert
Iser, secretary; and Chuck Lewis,
treasurer. William DeGrace was ap-
pointed publicity chairman.


In spite of peak chapter rolls, the
31 fraternities on campus pledged a
near-record class of 595 men, IFC
President Harry Jackson announced
The record pledge class of 619 men
was set in 1942 when a large majority
of fraternity men were faced with the
prospect of long service in the Armed
Forces. At that time there were 35
fraternities represented at the Uni-
Attributing the large group to the
fact that mIiny houses have large
senior classes, Jackson admitted that
the number was above any earlier
estimates. Other fraternity men sim-
ply stated that it was impossible to
narrow the group any further from
the record 970 who registered with
the IFC for rushing.

ternities is as follows:
