KNOW YOUR CANDIDATES:
Willow Village Vet Heads
Miehigan Communist Slate
By WALT HOFFMANN
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the second
of a series of articles on the principal
local candidates of all political parties
in the coming election.
For the first -time since 1940, the
Communist Party of Michigan is run-
ning candidates for election. Ab-
ner W. Berry, a thin, mild-manner-
ed scholarly Negro veteran who lives
at Willow Village, heads the slate of
fourteen Communist nominees.
Berry is running for the office of
Secretary of State, not Governor.
The reason why there is no Commu-
nist candidate for Governor is that
the Communists consider Kim Sigler,
the Republican candidate, a great
threat to the people of the state, and
while not endorsing the Democrat
they do not wish to split what they
term the "progressive vote".
Hits Byrnes, Vandenberg
Berry, who is also the State Edu-
cation Director for the Commu-
nist Party, was very critical of the
Vandenberg-Byrnes foreign policy,
but he did not believe there would
be war because "there are enough
wise men like Wallace who, while de-
siring to save capitalism, see that the
way to save it is not to buck up
against the Soviet Union."
When Berry was asked what his
position would be in the event of war
with Russia, he replied that the po-
sition of the Communist Party was
clear. "It will not support any im-
Plans Made for
Prof. Charles L. Jamison, of the
business administration school, re-
cently appointed by President Alex-
ander G. Ruthven" to represent the
University in the 1947 Community
Chest campaign, announced plans
yesterday for campus participation
in the drive.
The campus is to have four geo-
graphical divisions, Prof. Jamison
said, with divisional leaders in charge
of each. The divisions and their lead-
ers are: southwest, Prof. Edgar H.
Gault of the business administra-
tion school; northwest, Director
Clark Tibbitts of the Institute for
Humiarr Adjustment; southeast, Prof.
Ivan H. Walton of the engineering
school;and northeast, which has
been divided into two parts, Dr.
Dorothy J. Hargis of the medical
school and Dr. Isabel Morgan of the
school of public health.
In addition to the geographical
divisions there will be a special gifts
division headed by Dr. Charles A.
Fisher, director of the University ex-

perialist war against Russia." He'
added that if we believe the German
people should have overthrown Hit-
ler, then we must be ready to do the
The Communist domestic program
for Michigan includes: the enactment
of a state FEPC, the outlawing of
the Ku Klux Klan, a state bonus for
all veterans raised by taxing high
incomes and corporate profits, in-
creased public housing, a 75 cent
minimum wage and a 35 hour week
and the right to vote for 18-year-
When Berry was asked about the
party's chances of winning a na-
tional election, he replied that he
could not foresee a Communist elec-
tion victory in the near future, but
he did have hopes of a "liberal coa-
lition" getting into office. He then
pointed out that if Communists were
in key positions in that coalition,
they would be able to further the
Denies Gag on Press
Berry denied that freedom of the
press. would be done away with un-
der a Communist regime, but he did
say that the capitalist press would
have only a proportionate share of
the news resources and not all the
resources as he claimed it does today.
Berry also denied that the Com-
munist Party had any foreign con-
nections, but he did say that they
watched very closely the activities
of Communist Parties in other coun-
tries. He gave as an example the
-squatters' movement in London
which he thought might be a Bri-
tish contribution to Communist tac-
Abner Berry is 44 years old. He
joined the Communist ranks when he
was 27, He is married and has one
son, aged eight. Born in Texas, he-
has spent most of his life in Chicago,
New York and Detroit. He was at
one time a newspaperman, a long-
shoreman, and has worked in the
Chicago stockyards. He spent three
years in the Army, including fifteen
months in the European theatre as
a member of a field artillery unit in
the Third and Ninth Armies.
Two ROTC Medals
Will Be Presented
Beginning this term, a gold medal
and a silver medal will be awarded
every semester to the two outstand-
ing students in ROTC, Col. Karl
Henion, head of the University ROTC
unit, announced yesterday.
The medals are being awarded by
the Chicago Tribune to the two out-
standing ROTC students on campuses
throughout the country.
The gold medal will be awarded to
a senior and the silver medal to a
sophomore or junior, Col. Henion
said. Selection of the winners will
be determined by their records in
military leadership and their aca-
demic standing in ROTC.
Increased salaries for teachers
should be used directly to promote
more efficient teaching, Prof. Arthur
B. Moehlman, of the education
school, said yesterday.
Pointing out that teachers should
be paid in accordance with their
ability as well as for their length of
service, Prof. Moehlman added thatl
teaching salaries should be increased
in relation to the salaries paid prin-
cipals, supervisors and other admin-
Prof. Moehlman pointed .out that
most schools offer better salaries in
administrative or supervisory assign-
ments than in teaching posts with the
result that the best teachers have
been drawn out of the classroom into
Prof. Moehlman served last year
as consultant to the public schools of
Glencoe, Ill., which upon his recom-
mendations, inaugurated a system of
salaries and rating for teachers. The
so-called Glencoe Plan pays teachers
upon a 12-month basis, determines
salaries for teachers upon the same
basis as for administrtors, offers
women the same pay that men receive
and makes annual salary increases on
a merit rather than a seniority basis.
SRA PROGRAM DIRECTOR . . .
John G. Craig, recently appointed
member of the Student Religious
Dana, Allen To.
Dean Samuel T. Dana and Prof.
Shirley Allen of the School of For-
estry and Conservation will preside
at sessions of the American Forestry
Congress tomorrow, Thursday and
Friday in Washington, D. C.
The Congress, national organiza-
tion of private and public officials
concerned with the management of
forests will consider recommenda-
tions for legislation and public edu-
cation in this field.
Dean Dana has served for the past
three years as chairman of the ad-
visory committee for the Congress
forest resource appraisal staff, and
presented its report to the board of
directors last July. The program calls
for education of private forest own-
ers in the use of economical forestry
practices with the aid of technical ex-
perts, orderly exploitation of public
forests, and education of the public in
the need for increased forest fire
Prof. Allen will be chairman of the
session on multiple use of forest
lands, a field to which he has devoted
The celestial fireworks show,
scheduled for the United States to-
morrow night, will not be a hell-fire
herald of judgment day, qualified au-
thorities promised yesterday.
It will just be one of nature's star-
studded extravaganzas, this time fea-
turing the Giacobini-Zinner Comet.
The show is expectedto start,
Except for married veterans wait-
ing for places in the apartments at
University Terrace, permanent ac-
commodations have now been found
for all students who were living in
temporary quarters in dormitory
study halls and recreation rooms,
Francis Shiel, director of residence
halls, said yesterday.
The married vets apartments will
include about 270 living units when
completed. Of these, 84 units in four
buildings are now in use and 90 units
in three more buildings will be ready
in less than 30 days, Shiel said. The
remaining 100 units will be ready for
occupancy soon after the first of the
Celestial Fireworks Display
Expected Tomorrow Night
weather permitting, at about 9:30
p.m. (Detroit time) when the earth
passes within 131,000 miles of the
comet's path. Using the astronomer's
ruler, the 40,000 meteors which may
be seen in two hours will be "just
across the street."
According to Prof. Dean B. Mc-
Laughlin, professor of astronomy,
there is some possibility that pull (of
gravitational type) may keep the
stars from appearing by pulling them
too far from the earth's path to be
visible. They cannot be seen until
friction with the air about one or two
hundred miles above the earth makes
There is a possibility, Prof. Mc-
Laughlin said, that the shower of
shooting stars tomorrow night may be
even greater than one of the most
outstanding ones, seen in Europe in
1933, when several hundred meateors
were seen each minute.
Estimates on the appearance of the
Giacobini-Zinner Comet place the in-
tervals between "showers" at any
place from six and a half to 13 years.
The meteors should be almost directly
overhead early in the evening and
will move northwest across the sky
to a very low position in the north by
HIGHLIGHTS ON CAMPUS
Of Ne Books
Lecture Series, Opens
With Talk by Arnall
Two of the speakers in the Ora-
torical Association's 1946-47 lecture
series are the authors of new books
which are receiving favorable com-
ment by readers and critics alike.
John Mason Brown, theatrical cri-
tic, who will speak here Jan. 16 on
the topic "Seeing Things," is the
author of a new book by the same
title. The book covers everything
from a small boy's first impressions
of "Hamlet" to a critic's-eye view of
current Broadway productions, from
a blistering indictment of race cruel-
ty to stories of his wartime experi-
ences in the Navy. These war exper-
iences were described in Brown's
earlier works, "To All Hands" and
"Many a Watchful Night."
The Broadway reviewer will cover
many of these same topics in his lec-
Gov. Ellis Arnall of Georgia, who
will open the lecture course Thurs-
day, Oct. 17, has also discussed race
problems and the future of the South
in "Shore Dimly Seen," which will bq
released in November. Reviewers
who have seen advance copies of this
book feel that it is one of the strohg-
est literary works of today dealing
with the race problem.
