By RAGNAR L. ARNESEN
(Special to The Daily)
PARIS, France, Dec. 2-(De-

dents organized a demonstration

Technic Sales
Start Tuesday
Will Include Articles
Of General Interest
Featuring articles that are de-
signed to interest all students on
campus, the Michigan Technic,
engineering publication, will go
on sale Tuesday in the Engineer-
ing Arch and East Engineering
lobby.
"The students on the other side
of the campus have a misconcep-
tion about our magazine that we
would like to have straightened
out," Editor Phil Stemmer em-
phasized.
"We realize that our magazine
is primarily for engineers," Stem-
mer stated, "but we feel that the
articles we print are not too
technical for lit school students."
Featured articles include
"Trends in Post-War Television"
by Gerard H. Giezewski, '50E,
which describes the home tele-
vision set of the future and "Over
the Bounding Main" by Addison
Kermath which tells of the NRO-
TC summer cruise to Colon,
Puerto Rico.

live, protesting the breaking of
a strike in the cafeteria.
From a block away, we heard
the voices singing the Marseillaise
and hurried to see what was up.
A crowd of about 200 students was
(,eing ushered down the boulevard
by a squad of "flics" (gendarmes),
led by a heavy-duty patrol wagon.
Flashing Clubs
Skirmishes on the fringe of the
mob brought white billy-clubs:
lashing in the air. The patrol
wagon ploughed through the
throng, giving it impetus. Here
and there a recalcitrant student
received a restrained kick from a
blue-coated gendarme.
On the far side of the street,
passers-by had stopped to look on,
their expressions betraying more
of amusement than any other
emotion. Still the demonstrators
hung together, and still they kept
up the music of their chant. They
were moving faster now, and the
police were beginning to display
a little temper. The clubs actually
were making contact now. At the
juncture of Boulevards Jourdan
and Kellerman the crowd fanned
out. The police were having more
difficulty.
Dispersing Crowd
The patrol wagon raced its mo-
tor. Gendarmes chased after the
fleeing fringes of the mob. Now
the clubs were raining down on
heads. One policeman brought a
crashing blow across the shoulder
of. a demonstrator and lifted his
club broken at the middle. Sud-
denly hoses began to spray water
from a factory on the left.
The crowd dispersed, as mis-
siles of all sorts rained from the
factory windows. The gendarmes
pointed drawn revolvers menac-
ingly upwards in reply. Heads
poked out of the cafes across the
:;treet and then suddenly the place
was nearly empty.
