J-Hop Committee
Confusion Caused By Competition
Between Rival Photography Firms
The J-Hop Committee is in hot water again over the perennial
problem of darce pictures.
After concluding a contract with one local photographer for
dance pictures it has been discovered that another local firm is willing
to take the phatos at a much cheaper rate.
However, it appears that the latest cut rate is a result of a com-
petitive war which has been raging between the two photography
firms.

An
Maddy Leaves
For testimony,
Before House
Calls Petrillo Verdict
S Violation of Lea Act
Dr. Joseph E. Maddy, professor
of radio music instruction at the
University and president of the
National Music Camp, left for
Washington yesterday afternoon
to appear before the House Labor
.Committee.
Dr. Maddy, who has been fight-
ing the bans placed on non-com-
mercial educational broadcasts
since 1942, stated, "My purpose is
to ask for a law giving victims of
such tyranny the right to appeal
to the Federal courts."
He will testify tomorrow, while
James Caesar Petrillo, the head of
the American Federation of Mu-
sicians and originator of the un-
ion edicts to the networks, will
appear Monday. Dr. Maddy com-
mented that he would be there
himself to "refute any claims" Pe-
trillo makes with which Maddy
disagrees.
Petrillo was acquitted yesterday
of violating the Lea Act, which
states that forcing radio stations
to employ persons not needed is
unlawful. "The Lea Act is listed as
Public Law number 344 under the
79th Congress. It was upheld by
the Supreme Court last June and
is the law of the land," Dr. Maddy
pointed out.
"Petrillo demanded that a sta-
tion employ six record turners.
They only needed three and they
had three," he continued. When
the station refused, Petrillo called
a strike. "Then he boasted about
it," Dr. Maddy added.
"How can a judge acquit a man
who has not only admitted his
guilt repeatedly but who boasted
r of it? It is a direct violation of
the first section of the Lea Act,"
declared Dr. Maddy.
He asserted that he would even
ask how the American people can
"maintain confidence in the kind
of courts that will hand down
such decisions."

nation's capital where he repre-
sented AVC's campus chapter in a
national lobby for increased sub-
sistence. He later reported on the
two-day Washington campaign
before a meeting of the AVC.
In his budget message last Mon-
day, Mr. Truman had gone on rec-
ord against further increases in
veterans benefits. His stand was
moderated, Antonofsky said, after
cost of living figures gathered in
surveys here and around the na-
tion were presented to him.
Mass Exodus Seen
The figures pointed to a mass
exodus from the colleges and uni-
versities of the country unless'
subsistence rates were upped.
Antonofsky seemed confidentj
that a boost in GI Bill allotments
is on its way. "Increases in time
for the spring term is our byword.
And it's not far-fetched," he said.

U.S. Air Base
Near Tripoli
Will Re-open
British To Sendj
Troops to Cyprus
By The Associated Press
LONDON, Jan. 14-The United
States will soon reopen Mellaha,
highly strategic air base near
Tripoli in North Africa whichj
American transport planes used as
a landing field during the war, it
was disclosed today.
U. S. air officials in Europe said
the base was being reopened "be-
cause of additional supply-carry-
ing transport flights necessary to
serve American missions in the
Middle East, including the mis-
sion to Greece, and the air base at
Dharan in Saudi Arabia."
At the same time the British
disclosed that "large" numbers of
the 70,000 British troops in Pales-
tine will move to Cyprus soon to
make that island a key point in
Britain's eastern Mediterranean
defense system.
London diplomatic circles saw
the British-American moves as
important factors in the East-
West "propaganda war" in the
Mediterranean.
There was speculation that the
twin moves were timed to dis-
courage recognition by Soviet sat-
ellites of the separate Greek com-
munist "state proclaimed by the
Guerrilla chieftain, Markos Va-
fiades.
The Moscow radio has stepped
up recently its barrage against
United States naval maneuvers in
the Mediterranean, the dispatch
of 1,000 Marines to reinforce the
Mediterranean fleet, and the con-
tinued presence of some 5,000
British soldiers in Greec e.

sale today and tomorrow in the
Engineering Arch and East Engi-
neering Lobby.
The magazine will feature an
article entitled "The Car of To-
morrow-Now" by Lex Herrin,
'50E.
In the article Herrin describes
the new developments in auto-
motive design that will be stand-
ard equipment on the car of to-
morrow. He not only includes the
engineering aspects but also the
owners point of view.
Among the things discussed in
the article are the advantages of
having the motor in the rear, a
conventional design that has just
recently been changed, and the
installation of a third head light
that practically "sees around cor-
ners."

NEW CIVIC CENTER:
Ann Arbor Business District
To Get General Face Lifting

By PHIL DAWSON
A general face-lifting may be
in store for Ann Arbor's business
district with construction of the
first units in the city's long-need-
ed Civic Center, Mayor William
E. Brown, Jr., told The Daily in
an interview yesterday.
The voters must decide on a
general ballot whether to appro-
priate the money, with a three-
fifths majority needed for ap-
proval. "If they vote yes," the
mayor said, "no grass will grow
under our feet."
"Within six months, we'd be
breakingground," he predicted.

city office building, housing po-
lice and fire departments in addi-
tion, aimed for the spot now oc-
cupied by the 66-year-old fire
station.
New Library
,A new public library is planned
for a site across Fifth, now oc-
cupied by a gas station and in-
surance agency. Public utility cor-
porations would be encouraged to
construct new buildings along
Huron Street east of the proposed
public library, Mayor Brown said.
underground parking, which will
largely pay for itself, may be put
in if Huron Street were widened
to 1Q0 feet.
Present plans for the municipal
building and public library "are
part pf a grand long-range scheme
for the Civic Center," the mayor
said.
When completed, it will include
a new county building, art and
histQical centerl, civic theatre,
auditorium, public health and wel-
fare building, recreational center
and social agencies' building cent-
ered around the currently pro-
posed municipal building and lib-
rary.

Pope Urges 'U'
Newspaper
Investigation
Decries Dishonesty
Of Words,_Emphasis
The University was called upon
to establish a standing committee
to investigate the nations press by
James S. Pope, managing editor of
the Louisville Courier-Journal, in
a talk last night at Kellogg Audi-
torium.
Decrying the "frequent dishon-
esty in words, usually dishonesty
in emphasis," of the American
press Pope said that the Michigan
committee should "make the first
academic study, of individual
newspapers, and to*grade them
closely on their performance of
their obligation."
"The condition of the Press in a
democraticcountry is a matter of
public concern and a proper object
of public scrutiny," he said.
"Someone is going to pioneer in
the new art-science of measuring
the box score of the press. I don't
see why Michigan hasn't got
everything the job will take."
Pope pointed out that all types
of newspapers should be examined,
and by individual experts from
science, law, medicine, and politi-
cal science, who could give ex-
pert decisions on their contents.
"I should like to see at Michi-
gan," he said, "what may become
a dynamic new factor in general
education-a course in "How to
Read a Newspaper," and I believe
that faculty members as well as
students should be urged to take
the course."
Climaxing the series sponsored
by the journalism department will
be talks by Paul Shinkman, news
commentator and former foreign
correspondent, and Hamilton
Cochran of the Saturday Evening
Post who will speak tomorrow.

awarded the contract on an initial
bid which was better than that
offered by the Gach firm.
The Gach firm then contacted
the committee and asked to meet
with them to discuss the matter,
promising better terms. The com-
mittee declined to hold the pro-
posed meeting, declaring a re-
vision of the original contract
would not be "businesslike." They
said that the State Drug offered
terms in a written document while
Gach made only verbal offers.
Free Pictures
Gach told The Daily he would
do the pictures on a straight fee
of 25 cents per photo and color
photos for not more than $2 per
picture. At one time he verbally
offered the J-Hop Committee a
plan to do the pictures free for the
publicity involved.
Commenting on this statement,
Bruce Lockwood, of the J-Hop
Committee said that "Gach didn't
start talking about free pictures
until after we had signed the State
Drug contract. Also, Gach never
gave us any assurances about the
size of the free pictures."
Under the contract with State
Drug signed by the J-Hop Com-
mittee pictures will be taken at
rates of 50 cents for the first
photo and 35 cents for additional

Assist Students
All students participating in the
Course-content Student Advisory
Program should attend a meeting
at 5 p.m. today in the Grand Rap-
ids Room of the League, Dave
Dutcher, Student Legislature com-
mittee chairman, has announced.
Final instructions and materials
regarding the program will be dis-
tributed.
Juniors and seniors in the lit-
erary college who are interested in
being advisors in the fields of his-
tory, journalism, romance lan-
guages, math and physics should
contact Dutcher this week. Ad-
visors should have a "B" average
in their field of concentration with
wide experience in that field, Dut-
cher said.
Initiated by the Student Legis-
lature, the program is backed by
campus honor societies and has
been selected as the semester proj-
ect by Wyvern, junior women's
honorary society.
The program provides for stu-
dent experts reprsenting the ma-
jor fields of concentration who
will give detailed course informa-
tion to students during registra-
tion week in Rm. 25, Angell Hall.
If the program is successful in
the literary college it may be ex-
panded to other schools and col-
leges in the University, Dutcher
said.

The Michigan Daily's tradition-
al "J-Hop Extra" will respond to
the March of Dimes call-to-arms
and become the "March of Dimes
Daily," Nancy Helmick, Daily bus-
iness manager, announced yester-
day.

Miss Helmick said.
Tabloid Size
As in past years, the Dime Daiy
will be a tabloid-size take-off on
regular editions, a-la-Gargoyle,
Michiganensian and the Police
Gazette. The frustrated egos of re-
porters and editors is expected to
break out in a rash of humorous
articles, each endowed with the
writer's own crazy tilt. Most ser-
ious element of the paper will be
the program of J-Hop patrons and
dates, and pictures of the dance.

conjunction with the Ann Arbor
March of Dimes campaign open-
