Political Actioi Setin
AS Major jective
Enlistment of several thouii nd
students,, faculty members an.
townspeople lehind a iniPmuir
program of democratic progre s
has been set as the goal of th
Wallace Progressives, according to
Max Dean, temporary chairman of
the group.
Members of the organization are
selling Wallace cards and collect-
ing names and addresses in order
to establish a mailing list for di-
tribution of literature and pins.
Support of the Wallace pr-
gram implies only substantial
agreement with the points outlined
of the Wallace card, Dea> said. He
explained that it does nut imply
unconditional indorement of all
Wallace has said, saplort ohis
candidacy for ofice, or support
of a third party move.
The aims of the project. accord-
ing to Dean, are.:
1. To get a large registration
of politically conscious voters.
2. To establish informal small
groups on a local level to dis-
cuss and define the Wallace pro-
gram in terms of specific planks.
3. To achieve the greatest unity
of farmers, labor, youth,tveterans
and national and racial minorities
around a program developed from
these discussions.
4. To formalize thu unity
through elected representatives on
county, state or national basis who,
would be backed by millions of'
voters.

Northwestern last week the Na-
tionl Student Association got a
boost at, three other colleges
which live voted to join the in-
fat. organization.
1n an election which brought
out the largest vote in campus
history, students at the Univer-
tv of Wiseonsin overwhelmingly
approved membership in the NSA.
The Wisconsin students also voted
to change the system of dis-
tributing athletic books and bas-
ketball seats.
At Harvard University the NSA
also received approval in an all-
campus election. Returns indi-
cated that Harvard students ap-
proved the organization by a large
majority.
After a bitter debate the Stu-
dent Assembly at the University
of Texas moved to affiliate with
NSA. Voting 20 to 7 for joining
the group, the student governing
body acted after two hours of de-
bate. Opposition from several
members of the group hinged on
the method of adoption, with
some students favoring a general
campus vote on the measure. Last
week the student governing body
at Northwestern University turned
down a measure calling for affili-
ation with NSA.
At the University of Texas the
dean of the College of Education
has warned that a degree is not a
"sure fire" means of making a
"mint of money." Dean L. D. Has-
kew said that students must drop
the attitude that a college degree
inevitably leads to a white collar
job. The professions will be un-
able to absorb the greatly in-
creased number of college gradu-
ates, according to the educator.
A group of economics professors
at the University of Washington
have come up with a plan de-
signed to deal a death blow to in-
Ilation. The 17 professors believe
inflation has reached a point
where it cannot be stopped by the
removal of purchasing power. So
the economists at Washington
have drawn up a legislative pro-
gram calling for sweeping controls
and regulations. The plan, signed
by the professors and representing
only their personal views, asks
for an increase in the minimum
wage, renewal of the excess profits
tax, credit controls, reduced tar-
iffs on scarce items, extended ex-
port and import controls and a
crack down on speculation in the
majorexchanges.

The boats come in a 60 cent kit

obviously was a model airplane

jBill's boats are not just pleas-

which is supposed to exert tre-

appreciated.
"They're also for my girl's rela-
tives," he explained.
Bill is versatile along nautical
lines. Not only does he make
custom-made jet boats, but he's
thinking of adding "sail-boat in
the bottle" to his line. He already
has one sample. The only trouble
is that the bottles he uses, are
whiskey bottles, plainly marked,
and he's not so sure that he should
send them out.
Keller's Ne'w
MusicPlayed
"Overture 1947," the latest com-
position of Prof. Homer Keller, of
the music school, had its prem-
iere performance Tuesday when it
was played as the opening num-
ber of a concert given by the
Nashville Symphony.
Prof. Keller wrote the overture
at the request of William Strick-
land, director of' the Nashville
Symphony who wanted a gay
opening to balance the heavy pro-
gram planned for the concert.
The overture is dedicated to the
Nashville Symphony which has
been a community project since
its founding last year.

"SoeShn,"1Gwhich stars tifor-

has won universal acclaim in the
American press.
"Life" noted that it will "act on
U.S. audiences like a punch in the
stomach . . . It will shock the
world." The New York Times re-
viewer called it a "powerful drama
of modern life .. . one of the most
engrossing films we have ever
seen."
