Prof. Talamon Will Lead
Student Tour of France

Students from universities
throughout the country will have
an opportunity to see the night
life of Paris as wel as places of
historical and cultural interest in
France on a tour which will be
conducted this summer by Prof.
Rene Talamon of the Romance
Language department.
Of Hiawatha
Club Planned
The Hiawatha Club, exclusive to
members of the Upper Peninsula,
will hold its first reorganizational
meeting at 8 p.m. today in the
League ballroom, according to
William Flanagan, former vice
The name of the club was tak-
en from Longfellow's epic poem
"Hiawatha," whose action takes
place in the Upper Peninsula.
It was started to aid students
from the U.P. to become adjusted
to college life. The club's primary
purpose was to help students to
acquire jobs, and organipe co-ops,
according to Flanagan.
"Hiawatha" expanded before
the war to include many activities,
some of which take place in the
Upper Peninsula during vacations.
"With the reorganization of the
club, we expect to resume these
activities and many more," Flan-
agan said. "We have even decided
to let women in," he added.
Faculty Panel
Views Scope
Of Activities
The nature of University gov-
ernment and scope of faculty ac-
tivities were described Tuesday
by a panel of three faculty mem-
bers in the course, "Current Prob-
lems in Higher Education."
Professors Robert C. Angell,
chairman of the sociology depart-
ment, Louis A. Hopkins, summer
session director, and. Arthur Van
Duren, chairman of academic
counselors in the literary college,
formed the panel and gave their
views on the topic, "Faculty Par-,
ticipation in College Affairs." ;
Professors Angell and Hopkins
outlined the University's organiza-
tional structure and defined the
functions of various groups from
the Regents down to subordinate
committees. Processes were said,
to be very democratic with in-1
creasing authority being vested in
the faculty.
An equal opportunity for stu-
dents, helpful-recommendations toJ
the college on the value of courses
and follow-up service to academic
failures were given as the goals
of the academic counselors by
Prof. Van Duren. The faculty
members who serve as counselors
try to treat each student as an
individual, not just the subject
of a set of statistics, he said. 1
Now On Se
Now On Sale

The tour, which is under the
auspices of the Bureau of Univer-
sity Travel, Newton, Mass., will
include visits to such well known
cities as LeHavre, Tours, Lourdes,
Avignon, Nice, Monte Carlo, Gen-
eva and Rheims.
Paris Night Life
During the week spent in Paris,
Prof. Talamon assures interested
students that there will be visits
to the night life of Montmartre.
For Prof. Talamon the Parisian
part of the trip will be a pleasant
return to his old home town. Born
in the French Capital, he was ed-
ucated in a French Lycee and re-
ceived the diploma of Licencie es
Lettres from the University of
Paris. He has been teaching at
Michigan since 1909.
An old hand at conducting sum-
mer excursions to Europe, Prof.
Talamon assures interested stu-
dents that he'll be an especially
good "Indian guide" during the
week spent in Paris. Visits to the
night life of the old city as well
as tours of the artistic centers
and the historical landmarks will
make the week pass all too quickly.
Battle Remnants
The travelers will also have op-
portunity to visit the places which
monopolized the news only three
years ago on D-Day, such as Om-
aha Beach, Normandy Beaches,
and Caen where rusting barges
and sunken ships still give mute
testimony to the battle which was
fought, according to Prof. Tala-
Because travel restrictions
forced cancellation of a similar
trip planned for this past sum-
mer, Prof. Talamon emphasized
the importance of signing this
fall so that reservations can be
The number of students has
been limited to 25, these from
campuses all over the country.
Political Talks
Will Be Held
Political and social problems of
world understanding will be dis-
cussed by national authorities in
a conference here Nov. 5-6.
The conference will be entitled
"Toward World Understanding"
and will be held in conjunction
with the 18th annual Parent Edu-
cation Institute, of the Univer-
sity Extension Service. Co-spon-
sors are a number of Michigan
women's organizations, including
the American Association of Uni-
versity Women, Congress of Par-
ents and Teachers, League of
Women Voters, and Women's Ac-
tion Committee for Lasting Peace.
Perkins To Speak
On State Budget
Dr. John A Perkins, state bud-
get director, will be the speaker
at the first social seminar of the
year, sponsored by the University
chapter of the American Society
of Public Administration at 8 p.m.
today in the Rackham East
Conference Room.
Dr. Perkins will discuss "The
Problems of a Budget Director."
The organization sponsoring the
seminar is composed of students
in the Institute for Public Admin-
istration, but the meeting will be
open to others interested in the

YPL4 Seeks
Mass Students
Vote in1948
A mass student vote in 1948 for
the first time in American history
is the target of the Young Pro-
gressive Citizens of America, Her-
bert Oppenheimer, national YPCA
co-director, delared yesterday.
Twenty three year old Oppen-
heimer, a former student at Blak
Mountain College, N.C., was in,
Ann Arbor examining programsI
of the Young Progressive Citizensl
of Michigan and the local PCA.
YPCM, recognition of which is
pending before the Committe on
Student Affairs, may become a
unit of the national organization
after a year's probation on cam-
Voting regulations in local areas
from coast to coast are being pre-
pared for national distribution
well in advance of 1948 elections,
Oppenheimer revealed, pointing
out that this is the first time any
student organization has begun
compiling material on such a com-
plicated subject.
Less than one-third of eligible
students voted in 1946, he ex-

'Knights of the Flower' Find
Ways To Keep Maids Happy




Campus knights are cautiously
oiling up their rusty armor and
strewing a few hot-house roses on
the 3-1 ratio "field of combat."
Triple-deck orchid corsages just
can't be squeezed out of GI pay-
checks, so stalwarts are digging
up ingenious ways to keep their
ladies fair happy.
One such resourceful lad recent-
ly convinced a coed that chivalry
is showing signs of life by send-
ing her three dewy red roses, ac-
companied by a request for a
A flower shop reports that once
a week for the past three weeks,
another student has bought a
small flower-filled vase in the
shape of a dog and had it sent to
a certain lucky coed, who by now
is well on her way towards a pot-
tery collection.
A survey of local florists re-
vealed that men are buying single
roses, gardenia, or chrysanthe-
mum blooms, in order to hand
them over in person to the girls

of their choice, along with more
generous "bouquets" of flattery.
Apparently even flowers aren't
guaranteed date bait, for one un-
happy soul enclosed with his
floral offering a little note read-
ing, "I know this won't make any
difference, but-"
As far as local florists are con-
cerned, life is still no bed of roses.
They report that the boom in orig-
inality hasn't boosted business,
which is just about what it was
last year. The first big girl-bid
ormal should hoist sales, they
think-if men don't take to grow-
ing their own corsages.
One florist, however, believes in
lending campus men a hand in
both the cost-of-living and ratio
battle. He's ordered a shipment of
Hawaiian orchids, to sell for $1.50,
flown out from California.
"They should sell pretty fast,"
he says.
