'Free' Press Today
N. R. Howard, editor of the
Cleveland News, will speak on "A
Free and Responsible Press" at 8
p.m. today in Kellogg Auditorium.
Howard, who is also president of
the American Society of News-
paper Editors, will give his views
on effective criticism of the press
in the second lecture of the cur-
rent series in Journalism.
All evening lectures in the series
are open to the public.
Born in Columbus, O., at the
turn of the century, Howard drift-
ed into newspaper work via a boy-
hood paper route. Later, while
attending Oberlin College, he was
college correspondent for several
While waiting to enter the army
during the first world war, he
worked as a reporter for the
Cleveland News, and afterwards
transferred to the Plain Dealer
where he was managing editor
from 1930 to 1937. He returned to
the News as editor in 1937.
During the last war he was ap-
pointed assistant director of the
U. S. Office of Censorship, and
worked with Byron Price's group
as chief censor on the domestic
level. In this capacity, he per-
suaded the press, radio and bok
publishers to enter into a volun-
tary agreement to suppress all in-
formation concerning the three
atomic bomb plants.
The next lecture in the current
journalism series will be given
Dec. 15 by A. L. Miller, publisher
of the Battle Creek Enquirer and

No trees are available through

For the most part, business has
been slow everywhere so far. Sell-
ers say the Yule spirit will pick up

so, at least. He has been driving

for three days with no success.
Meanwhile, a few decorations
have appeared on campus. The

fronting the General Library and

Discrimination in Dormitories
Surveyed at U. of California
A connuiit ee of the student
r Overnment at the University of
California has made a stuy of al-
leged discrimnination in women
dormitories at, the school. The
survey. which took in 27 student
residences, was designed to de-
termine the extent of racial and
religious discrimination in w-
men's dormitories. It was dis-
covered that half of the dorms
were non-discriminatory. The re-
maining houses discriminated on
the basis of race and religion.
Also at the University of Cali-
fornia a spontaneous campaign
has been launched to aid destitute
European peoples. In a letter to
the editor of the student newspa-
per a student-veteran suggested
that each pupil contribute one
dollar as a Christmas gift to the
people of Europe. Response was
immediate and all money turned
in will be sent to officials in
To Get 'Ensian
At Old_ Price
Students must complete all fi-
nancial arrangements with the
Michiganensian today if they are
to take advantage of lower prices
and the 'Ensian "90 Percent Plan."
The 'Ensian business office will
be open from 2 to 5 p.m. for stu-
dent sales, Barbara Gray, 'Ensian I
business manager, said.
Until the deadline:
1. Students may purchase year-
books for $5; after today the price
S2. Fraternities, sororities and
house groups may receive their
page in the yearbook without
charge by turning in the names
and receipt numbers of 90 per cent
of their membership who have
subscribed for the 1948 yearbook.
3. Campus groups and organi-
zations may sign contracts to
have their group pictures in the
'Ensian. The only exception made
after the deadline will be for
dance committees that have not
yet been formed.
"The $1 increase in the price
of the 'Ensian is the result of
higher printing costs than those
anticipated earlier in the year,"
Art DerDerian, 'Ensign sales pro-
motion manager, explained.

ciency, hard work and real suc-
cess, a new legislature taking over,
would probably not be able to con-
tinue with the same procedure
without entirely different sand-
ards of judgment.
Expressing a desire to more di-
rectly centralize student opinion,
Dean Walter explained a plan,
still in a formative stage, which
would include meetings of a fair-
ly large group of representatives
of all classes with faculty and ad-
ministration representatives. Stu-
dent-faculty problems would be
"thrashed out" at these meetings
in openand informal discussions.
These could very well act as a
guide to the Student Legislature,
Dean Walter said.
Problems of student govern-
ment can be successfully over-
come if students are aware of the
importance of personnel change,
and make provisions for it, Dean
Walter emphasized. Without this
consideration, student government
cannot indefinitely remain a suc-

It appears that barbers are also
in hot water at the University of
Iowa. However, Iowa students are
not protesting discrimination, but
the high cost of hair cuts. The
Cornhuskers have formed a "Long
Hair Society" which has vowed to
picket the barbers until prices
come down. The action was taken
when local barbers raised prices
from 75 cents to $1.
Also at Iowa a student firm has
been organized to sell lecture
notes. The neophyte Iowa busi-
nessmen take notes at all classes
having an enrollment of over 400.
The notes are then compiled in
pamphlet form and sold to the
student body. However, the firm
points out that the notes are de-
sighed to act as a study aid, not
as a substitute for attending class-

It appears that the problem
of dormitory food is not confined
to this campus. Up at Michigan
State College a student commit-
tee has been formed to delve into
recently raised grievances over
dormitory administration. Eight-
een points will be investigated,
including food service and prep-
aration. The group has already
brought several suggestions into
MSC dieticians who have agreed
to adopt them. Already al3proved
are recommendations to serve the
food hot, instead of warm; a plan
