Jister has been teaching speech at
Michigan since 1902. He is com-
pletely a Michigan man, having

University Hall Premieres
When Dr. Hollister was first
working with dramatics courses,
the students put on 10 plays a
year in University Hall. "I en-
joyed the chance to try out and
start courses," he remarks. "There
is a certain amount of academic

triguing experiences was the trip

As for the Jews, anti-semitism
among the Germans is still ram-
pant. A woman in her early thir-
ties, who admittedly knew very
few throughout her life, had this
to say : "Nearly every American
soldier I have talked to, says he
doesn't like Jews either. Why
then, do you want us Germans to
feel any different?"
It was a tough one to answer.
Remembrance of Things Past
Hitler is most often referred to
as "that idiot Hitler." It is your
choice to determine whether they
feel he was an idiot for starting
the war, or for losing it.
Do the Germans really believe
they lost the fight this time? "We
ran out of gasoline for our Luft-
waffe," or "the rest of the world
ganged up on us," are common

LANSING, Feb. 23-(UP--Attor-
ney General Eugene F. Black to-
day beat the drums for full-scale
revision of the Michigan Constitu-
tion at a conference of newspaper-
men at Michigan State College.
He endorsed a removal of the
salary limitations on legislators
and state officials, asserting the
low salaries are "the key to a great
deal of our trouble."
One of the results. he said, is
that legislation is "rammed"
through the legislature hurriedly
to shorten the sessions, rather
than allowing time for careful de-
liberation. As a result, he said, the
courts and attorney general are
burdened with the job of inter-
preting what the legislature in-
He urged rewriting a clause of
the constitution which permits a.
member of the legislature to hold
a township office.
Black opposed the present con-
stitutional ban on lotteries, assert-
ing that ,when it restricts such "lo-
cal, innocent games as bingo," it
was not doing what the people in-
Use of the power to amend the
constitution periodically, Black
said, has led to "confusion and
disarrangement" of state govern-

them already scattered over the country, will soon find those hard-earned diplomas in -their mail
boxes. Mrs. Lou H. Ransom, diploma clerk, and her two assistants, Mrs. Clayton Perry and Mrs.
Eleanor Sylvester, are shown here mailing them out. One sad note: because of the English
sheepskin shortage, all diplomas except those of the g'aduate, dental and law schools will be
printed on high-quality paper.

size of the student body and in-

said. "The educational attitude
has also altered. It's been interest-
ing to watch the somewhat futile
struggle for essential scholarship.
But life still has the same basic
qualities," he added.
