)ireetors Will Not Reopen
ormer Student Restaurant

The Board of Directors of the
Wolverine Student Cooperative
have no incention of reopening a
student restaurant at the present
time, Prof Hobart Coffey of the
LaW School, chairman of the
Board of Directors, declared yes-
Prof. C ffey's statement came
in response to student questions
as to the present status of the
Wolverine Cooperative and the
former :estaurant building on

(Continued from page 1)
of Washtenaw county sets up two
separate pre-natal classes, one
for Colored and one for White;
a Colored typist was refused at
West Lodge after being sent by the
United States Employment office
to fill an existing vacancy; there
was opportunity this past summer
to employ Colored teachers in the
newly-opened Ross Junior High
school, but because of the well-
known policy, they were not, in
a school system where approxi-
mately 26 per cent of its popula-
tion is Colored."
Mr. Blake also stated that he
would like to "see an FEPC from
the heart rather than from legal
Lawyer's Guild
According to a statement from
Morton Leitson, president of the
Lawyer's Guild, last spring was
the first time Negroes were per-
mitted to live in the Lawyer's Club,
and while there a policy of segre-
gation was employed. The Guild,
Leitson explained, is open to all
students regardless of their race
or color.
While there is a restaurant An-
ti-Discrimination (Diggs) law in
the state, the results of an ex-
periment conducted by IRA last
spring showed that three out of
40 local restaurants practiced
some form of discrimination, and
the management gave this reason
when approached: "We love the
constitution, America, and all
people, but business is business
and my customers complain."
Another type of discrimination
ws found to exist even in some
classrooms. According to Ellen
Springer, graduate student in
pu~blic health, one of her instruc-
tors has made several references
to the Negro in his lectures by re-
lating insinuating stories about
them in an ante -bellum Negro
dialect. Another laboratory pro-
fessor postponed examinging ex-
periments done by Negroes until
the end of the hour when the
student could not. complete his
assignment and had to return at
a later time to do his work.
"This is very subtle, I admit,"
Miss Springer commented, "and
the professor would apologize for
not getting to us, but it was re-
peated again and again, which
gave us no other course but to
conclude chat he was definitely

State Street, which the Wolverine
no longer owns.
Reasons Given
The decision not to reopen a
student restaurant, Prof. Coffey
said, has been made due to the
following considerations:
1. No suitable building is avail-
able, either by purchase or lease,
within the 'financial means of the
2. In the judgement of at least
a majority of the directors, th
present period of inflated real es-
tate is nt a good time to pur-
chase a building.
3. While there seems to be a
considerable demand on the part
of students for good meals at lown
prices, there has been little evi-
dence of a corresponding desire to
earn part of their way by work-
ing-a necessary feature of the
operation of a restaurant such as
the old Wolverine.
Cooperative Kept Alive
The Wolverine Cooperative has
been kept alive, Prof. Coffey said,
although it no longer owns the
State Street property. It func-
tions with a limited membership
and a board of directors with the
usual officers required by law.
The restaurant building was
sold during the war. After most
of the members left school to join
the armed forces, the restaurant
operated at a loss and was finally
forced to stop serving meals.
Buildings Released
In 1944 the Directors of the
corporation voted to dispose of
the club and restaurant building
for the following reasons:
1. The corporation between
1937 and 1943 had returned prac-
tically all of its profits to its mem-
bers in the form of rebates and
low meal costs, and had no reserve
fund to carry the corporation
through the war emergency.
2. The piice offered for the pro-
perty seemed reasonable.
3. The members had always
been dissatisfied with the physi-
cal facilities of the State Street
Near East History
Will Be Rewritten
Recent discoveries of new docu-
mentary ',,d archeological mate-
rials will necessitate reinterpretat-
ing the ancient history of the Near
East, Prof. Arthur E. W. Boak, of
the history department, told mem-
bers of the Graduate History Club
Prof. Bnak Pointed out that
these discoveries will cause a re-
vision of the chronology of this
whole early period of history. Some
of the dates now accepted by his-
torians will be changed by several
hundred years, he added.

Gailering of Shoes
Special Ain of Drive
Bundle Days to collect clothing
and shoes for shipment overseas
will be eld Tuesday through
Thursday by the University Fa-
mine Committee.
Seymour S. Goldstein, president
of the committee, said that the
drive will support the Save the
Children Federation which is now
supplying clothing to students in
,.re than i 000 hols in France
Belgium and Holland.
Drive chairman Ada Davis said.
"there is pjiobably no one in the
TTniversity who does not have a
few articles which lie or she will
)e glad to contribute. It- is much
better to see that outworn
or unused garments get into hands
of some reedy person than to
have them kicking around in a

Miss Davis reported, "Travellers
who have recently returned from
Europe report that the dearth of
shoes over there is still a tragedy.
With the ooming winter period of
snow and .ain shoes made of pa-
per or some other makeshift mate-
rial will just fall to pieces."
Miss Davis asked especially for
clean, ser viceable clothing, but
said that a reconditioning service
is maintained by the Federation
for restoration of slightly dam-
aged garments. She also asked
that clothing be wrapped in bun-
dles and tied.
The campus has been zoned for
the drive and individual houses
will be contacted by the commit-
tee. Bundles of clothing will be
collected at individual resi-
dences or will be received at Lane

Dr. Bell Says
Campus Alert
For TB Cases
More X-Rays Slated
For Medical Students
Facing the pressing housing,
eating and academic conditions
.resent this year, the campus is
more on the alert than ever be-
fore for tuberculosis cases, Dr.
Margaret Bell, acting director of
Health Service, said.
The newest development in tu-
berculosis prevention is a plan set
up last week to increase the num-
ber of chest X-rays given to medi-
cal students. In spite of extensive
precautions, there still is so much
danger of their being exposed to
an unrecognized case of the dis-
ease outside the tuberculosis unit,
that increased protection is prac-
tically a necessity, she said. It is
possible to find a moderately ad-
vanced case of tuberculosis which
has developed within three months
of the last X-ray.
Regular X-rays
According to the new plan jun-
ior medic tl students will have
X-rays twice each school year and
seniors will have three-two dur-
ing the year and one just before
graduation. Freshman and soph-
omore medical students, in their
pre-clinical years, will have X-rays
taken once a year as usual.
The Health Service has one of
the most meticulous and foolproof
follow-up systems to be found on
any college campus in the coun-
try, she sa:d. At the beginning of
each school year around 5,500
X-rays are taken, both of entering
students arid as "re-rays" of old
students whom they are checking.
Tuberculosis Treacherous
Throughout thiseyear, we have
been taking between 100 and 150
"chests" each month, she said, in
addition to maintaining a careful
check on any doubtful cases.
Tuberculosis is particularly
treacherous, Dr. Bell explained, be-
cause the disease is so insidious
that it is often difficult to pick it
up early. For complete informa-
tion we " eed not only a chest
X-ray, but also a complete history,
examination, and tuberculin tests.

"We felt that his work in the
Galen Shop definitely gave Don-

panionshin he so desperately
needed and relieved him of a good
deal of his self-consciousness,"
Mrs. Walion said.
For older boys who are taking

as work done there, under in-
struction of a licensed teacher, be

Most of the children, who come
up to the shop every afternoon on

Mrs. Wal'i.n said. They are kept

the years, he has become so en-

he has specific projects planned
each time he enters the hospital,
tackling more difficult work each
time. He has become so proficient
around the shop that he works
as a teacher's assistant each time
he,-comes in and has become very
helpful with the younger children.
