The campus-wide petition cam-
paign for state FEPC legislation will
be enlarged to cover all Ann Arbor,
it was decided at a meeting of the
FEPC Coordinating Committee last
night which elected George Anto-
nevsky of AVG, president.
Plans were made to circulate both
literature and petitions among the
registered voters of the town imme-
diately following state and congres-
sional elections Nov. 5 despite a le-
gal ruling which was previously con-
sidered a definite stumbling block
by a spokesman for the committee.
Former Stumbling Block
This ruling was that the circulator
of a petition be a registered voter in
the county in which he circulates the
petition and that all signatures
likewise be of registered voters.
Following the distribution of liter-
ature, door-to-door canvassers will
cover the city seeking signatures to
Students Can Help
Student members of the group rep-
resented on the Coordinating Com-
mittee (AVC, MYDA, IRA, SRA and
th Lawyers Guil) cani itherefore b
ature, it was pointed out, and legally
registered voters for the circulation
of petitions can be drawn from the
ranks of the League of Women Vot-
ers which has offered its support.
In order to receive legislative con-
sideration, the signatures of eight
per cent of the persons who vote for
the office of governor in the Nov. 5
elections must be secured by Dec. 1.

Plans are underway by the Union
management to find a replacement
for George, the 86 year old Union
doorman, who died Tuesday.
The new doorman, however, must
be fitted to carry on the traditions
begun back in 1920 when George J-.
Johnson first came to work, accord-
ing to Franklin C. Kuenzel, Union
The Union building, begun in 1916,
was used as a barracks during the
war years, he explained, pointing out
that George had been with the Union
since it first began operation as the
men's meeting place in 1920.
No Ann Arbor resident ever got
more publicity than George,, he said,
or more cigars from visiting alumni
on football weekends.

TOO FEW FAILURES:
Carrothers Calls Automatic
Promotion of Students Unfair
Automatic promotion of pupils was
termed basically unfair to students
yesterday by George E. Carrothers,
director of the Bureau of Cooperation
with Educational Institutions.
The current "fad for promotions
and passing grades" regardless of
pupil achievement prevents both pub-
lcan pivatel cools fromnill-~
The "promotion fad" results, Car-
octhen said, from the desire of schiool
wersonnel to make a good showing
mnd from parent pressure upon school
>oard officials and teachers to pro-
mnote their children, whether or not
they deserve it.,
The situation in an increasing
number of schools reflects, according
to Carrothers, the idea either that
all pupils are born with sufficient in-
tellectual ability to do acceptable
school work without any failures, or
that the work offered ought to be
watered down to a level which makes
it possible for each child to be pro-
mroted each year,
-'"'he pupil gets an entirely errone-
ous idea as to his own educational
development, h e is tricked into think-
he is prepared for future undertak-
ings of which he is really incapable,"
Carrothers declared, "and he is not
nrcour aged to make the rbost of his
genuine intellectual ability."
