Students' Aid
In Plant Votes

The engeerdg college i; di-
vided into two opposing camps,;
those who believe their studies in-'
terfere with their social lives and
those who don't.
A Daily survey revealed the lic-
tions to be of about equal strength.
Of twenty-one students interview-
ed, eight find their work no ob-
stacle to a complete social life,
while seven found their work a
landicap in varying degrees. The
remainder lacked a basis for com-
Paucity of Women
Next to studies. the paucity of
women students in classs was cit-
ed as the chief deterrent to "run-
ning around." (Official enroll-
ment figures disclose a registra-
tion of twenty-four women stu-
dents to 3,463 males in the engi-
neering college.>

Studies No Bar
William Meikle, '50E; "My
studies have no effect on my
social life, but not having women
in classes is a definite handicap."
Two anonymous commenters
said cryptically, "No social life. I
never saw any."
Henry Newman, Jr., '50E (un-
less he gets too much social life);
"Being an engineering student is
a definite handicap. My analyti-
cal mind makes me think of the

that there are few coeds in his
engineering classes does not
bother him since he takes some

Wiats 'U' Help for
Employe Elections
The National Labor Relations
Board has asked for a list of Uni-
'ersity students who would be
villing to act as temporary em-
>loyees in conducting plant elec-
ions in Michigan under the Taft-
Hartley law.
Students will be paid at the
gate of $10.17 per day, usually
for three days, Miss Betty Lou
Bidwell, secretary to the head of
the Institute of Public Adminis-
tration announced yesterday.
I'hese positions may be filled by
any student, providing that he or
she is an American citizen.
The NLRB expects some 5,000
elections to be held during the
spring to determine whether plant
employes are infavor of a union
shop. Under the Taft-Hartley law
employes must register their pref-
erence in a secret election.
Elections will probably be held
in all of the big automobile plants
in the Detroit area.
Details as to whether travel ex-
penses will be paid and the ex-
pected length of the working day
will be announced later.
Students interested in taking
these positions should contact
Miss Bidwell. Rm. 220B Haven
Hall, or telephone 3-1511, exten-
sion 2123, sometime this week.
Miss Bidwell will prepare a list
of available students which the
NLRB will use.

A NEW REGENT-Kcnnetli M. Stevens, 'LU, (left) of Detroit,
new member of the Board of Regents, is greeted as he arrives
at Ann Arbor to attend his first board meeting. He is shaking

IRei'ber'L of Manstique, oldest njcnmeier of the board from
point of service. Stevens replaces harry G. Kipke, former Mich-
igan football coach, whose eight year term of office expired Dec.

Rm. 306 of the Union under the
sponsorship of the Interfratern-

tary-treasurer of IFC.
Books will be on sale at the
exchange from 12:15 p.m. to 5:001
p.m. through Friday but no books
will be accepted for resale after
today, Lockwood announced. 1
The exchange, which was or-1
ganized by Lockwood and a num-
ber of assistants, has two distinc-c
tive features: a thorough book-i
filing system with a number of
cross-checks, and a service which
-Glows each book-seller to name,
his own price for his book and re-J
ceive payment by mail.
The filing system, according toJ
Lockwood, is distinguished by its
,ross-checks. When a student
barings a book in, his book is clas-
sified in four ways: by number,1
letter, title and owner. This sys-
tem eliminates a great deal of the
confusion which ordinarily occurs
in case the owner wants the book
Soon after the book is sold, the
student will receive a check by
mail for the amount of the sale

'Rec' Roomis
Last week the University had
a "displaced persons" problem of
its own, with several men sleeping
in the recreation rooms of the
East and West Quadrangles.
However, the latest report from
the Office of the Dean of Stu-
dents indicates that the situation
is now in hand, and that more
"permanent" living quarters have
been found for the overflow.
Although all the men's resi-
dances, with the exception of the
Willow Village dormitories, are
just as crowded as they were in
the fall, it was learned in the
Dean of Women's Office that
there are a few less people living
Sthe women's dormitories.
However, some women students
are still living in Couzens Hall,!
and taking their meals at Mosher-
The effects of the slight de-
crease in enrollment are most no-
ticeable in the Willow Village liv-
ing accommodations. There are
now about 600 men living in the
dormitories at the Village, as com-
pared to last year's peak of 1,450
