Students Hit
Food Service
In West Quad
Better Quality,
Preparing Urged
Food gripes took center interest
in the West Quad yesterday, as
more than 800 residents signed
petitions criticizing ;preparation,
distribution and presentation of
their meals.
A committee of the students who
met yesterday with Francis Shiel,
residence halls' business manager,
explained that the purpose of the
petitions was to point out that an
overwhelming majority of the res-
idents are dissatisfied with the
food. Shiel declined comment on
the situation.
Investigation Needed
Elizabeth Ham, head University
dietician, meeting with the West
Quad Council last night, was told
that some sort of investigation is
needed.
"We want to be sure that we are
getting sufficient quality for the
money we're paying," Quad Pres-
ident Albert Maslin said.
"We told Miss Ham that the
University should look into the
situation at other state schools
and find out how we rate in the
quality for money ratio," he added.
Student who circulated the pe-
titions explained that while food
purchased by the University may
be first-quality, the preparation is
very poor.
Over and Over Again
They claim that when such food
as beef heart or liver is served,
more than half the students do
not eat, so that the food is served
again the next day in different
form.
A former army mess officer
pointed out that cafeteria food
lines are often held up because a
full tray of food cannot be brought
in until the serving trays are com-
pletely empty, causing a bottle-
neck.
Although the petitions were cir-
culated by individual students, not
the Quad Council, Maslin said
that the, eight hodfse "Y'ffdetft-
composing the council feel that
the residents had just cause for
complaine. He added:
"We realize that the University
faces sky-high food prices, but
we hope that some solution to the
problem can be found "
Grain Price
Inquiry Asked
Exchanges Request
Congress To Act
CHICAGO, Nov. 5-(P')--The
nation's three largest grain ex-
changes, disclaiming responsibility
for the recent rise in grain prices,
today asked for a "sweeping" con-
gressional investigation not only
of their activities but also of the
government's grain buying pro-
gram.
The exchanges, already under
investigation by the attorney gen-
eral after a presidential charge
that "gambling in the market"
had skyrocketed grain prices, said
they would "welcome and request"
a hearing "at the earliest possible
date."
Their statement said the special
investigation had been requested

"in order that the American pub-
lic may be furnished facts from
which it can draw its own con-
clusions as to whether the rapid
rise in commodity prices has been
occasioned by illegal and improper
practices on the part of the ex-
changes, on the one hand, or by
the government's buying program
for export, plus bungling and lack
of planning on the other hand."
Teachers Will
Meet Today
The Michigan Council on Adult
Education will focus its attention
on international understanding
and Michigan adult education
problems at its annual meeting to
be held here today and tomorrow.
The Council will join the final

Lindeman of the New York School
of Social Work.

'Peace Climate' Urged
By Emily Taft Douglas
Aid to Europe, Control of Atomic Weapons,
lasting Peace Discussed at Conference
America must continue aid to Europe, both individually and
through the Marshall Plan, Emily Taft Douglas, former congress-
woman from Illinois, told members of the World Understanding Con-
ference today at Rackham Building.
Starved and half-starved Europeans can't be expected to "lift
themselves by their bootstraps," Mrs. Douglas declared at the confer-
ence, which is combined with the 18th annual Parent Education In-
stitute.
Toward 'World Peace-Mindedness'
"If modern agricultural technology can be applied throughout
the world to eliminate the age-old scourge of recurrent famine, it

PROF. WILLIAM lIABER

Prof. Haber
Will Discuss
Job Outlook
Predictions of vocational prob-
lems to come will be featured in
a talk to be given by Prof. Wil-
liam Haber, of the economics de-
partment, at 8 p.m. today in Hill
Auditorium.
Focusing on the job future fac-
ing students, Prof. Haber will an-
alyze various occupational fields
in a lecture entitled, "Vocational
Horizons." Although presented as
the last in the series of Orienta-
tion Assemblies, the talk will be
open to all students on campus.
Study as Preparation
The importance of a liberal arts
education in securing a- job will
be considered in the lecture, with
suggestions for present study prep-
aration. Prof. Haber will also in-
clude a discussion of increasing
and decreasing areas in the dif-
ferent vocational fields.
Prof. Haber, who teaches courses
in labor relations and social se-
curity at the University has a
long record of government service
in these fields.
Government Service
During the war, Prof. Haber
served as Director of Planning for
the War Manpower Commission,
and as advisor to the War Mobili-
zation and Reconversion Boards.
The University Men's Glee Club
will also be featured on the As-
sembly program today, presenting
a selection of special numbers un-
der the direction of Prof. Philip
Duey, of the music school.

ing the world peace-minded, Mrs.
Douglas said.
Education and agricultural
agencies will be of greater import-
ance in creating a "climate for
peace" than a world police force,
Mrs. Douglas added.
Provost James P. Adams, in an
address at the opening session,
warned that the genuine danger
that the United States faces in its
foreign affairs is the possibility
we will not accept the economic
consequence of our present polit-
ical position.
Danger Signs
"Signs of this danger are al-
ready visible in some quarters in
the form of skepticism regarding
the Marshall Plan for the support
of economic recovery in Western
Europe," Provost Adams declared.
He advocated both an economic
rehabilitation program to be car-
ried out during hte next five to
ten years, and emergency action
to provide immediate aid.
Desupite the nation's irritation
over Russia' policy of obstruct-
ing collaboration, there is little
danger of a revival of political
isolationism, Dr. Adams said.
Dean Ralph A. Sawyer of the
Graduate School, who also spoke
at the opening session, told the
conference that the only alterna-
tive to living in a state of armed
truce and constant alert is inter-
national control of atomic weap-
ons.
Lasting German Peace
At a 7:30 p.m. meeting of the
conference yesterday, Prof. James
K. Pollock of the political cience
departmen tdiscussed the prob-
lems of maintaining lasting peace
in Germany.
The conference will continue to-
day with addresses by Mark Starr,
educational director of the Inter-
national Ladies' Garment Work-
ers' Union; Dr. Ernest M. Ligon,
professor of psychology at Union
College, Schenectady, N.Y.; and
Dr. Edward Lindeman of th New
York School of Social Work.

UN Approves
Commission
To Aid Korea
Aim to Expedite
Independence
By The Associated Press
LAKE SUCCESS, Nov. 5-A
United Nations Commission to
"facilitate and expedite" Korean
independence was approved today
by the General Assembly's Polit-
ical Committee in the face of a
new Soviet bloc boycott on Amer-
ican-sponsored proposals.
. The 57-nation committee vot-
ed 46 to 0 for the Korean Com-
mission which was proposed
originally by Secretary of State
Marshall and opposed vigorously
by Russia.
Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and
Bolivia abstained, the Soviet group
did not vote and Yemen was ab-
sent.
The question goes to the As-
sembly in plenary session probably
late next week for final approval.
Russia's boycott notice
brought forth immediate spec-
ulation that she would refuse
to admit the commission to
North Korea and would not co-
operate with it.
Russia has stayed away from a
sub-committee which drafted a
chart for a year-round "little as-
sembly" asked by the U.S. and she
had refused to take part in a UN
Balkans watch commission already
being set up by decision of the
Assembly.
The prospect of yet another So-
viet boycott developed as the po-
litical committee passed from the
Korean question to debater on
Marshall's "little assembly" proj-
ect.
Dr. Herbert V. Evatt, Australian
Foreign Minister, supported it as
a good idea and pleaded for full
representation in the proposed
year-around Assembly.

Ask Election Revision
A report on election by-laws
from the Men's Judiciary Council
was submitted to the Student Leg-

the Legislature meeting last night.
The by-laws, involving a com-
plete reorganization of the peti-
tioning and elections system, pro-
vide for standardized printed forms
for petitions to be stapled to a
copy of elections regulations, re-
quirements that only the candi-

lature at its next meeting.
The Legislature also voted to
make a contribution from its
treasury to the financing of a

WORKERS' SERVICE:
Labor education Programs
Hampered by Limited Funds

By PHIL DAWSON
Labor education programs are
consistently hampered by lack of
funds, in spite of remarkable de-
velopment in the last five years,
according to Hilda Smith, of the
National Committee for the Ex-
tension of Labor Education.
The University's Workers' Ex-
tension Service in Detroit, a pio-
neer in this field, is among those
which would benefit from the pro-
posed Labor Extension Bill,
S-1390, now in both houses of
Congress, Miss Smith yesterday
told a luncheon meeting of inter-
ested faculty members and others.
Wide Scope
The scope of workers' adult ed-
ucation programs is wide, includ-
ing industrial, governipental and
community problems. Since these
are of crucial interest to every-

ested college or university, and,
following approval of the blue-
print by a state board and a na-
tional Labor Extension Service,
the federal government will pro-
vide 75 per cent of the requested
money-the other fourth to be
raised within the state.
Would Help Labor
The Labor Extension Service
set up by the bill would also serve
as a source of information and as-
sistance to labor, similar to the
federal Agricultural Extension
Service, Miss Smith explained.
This measures provides steps for
constructive action on a broad
basis in the field of labor rela-
tions. But its expected adoption
will increase the need for planning
groups in local communities and
for teachers and leaders.
