Two Emergency Calls
Give Deputy a Busy Day

Life is just one little thing
after another for Deputy Kenneth
W. Dilloway, who pilots the
Washtenaw County Sheriff's Of-
fice ambulance.
Dilloway normally handles rou-
tine desk work in the Sheriff's
office but yesterday he played the
starring role in a "beat the stork"
chase to St. Joseph's Mercy Hos-
pital, and another emergency

No Rest for the Weary
But as soon as our tired am-

call. Mrs. Grace Sherman, 322

according to her doctor, and
needed immediate transportation
to St. Joseph's Hospital. Off goes

Morse Calls for
IN AACPStatement
WASHINGTON, April 12-()-
Senator Morse (Rep., Ore.) today
called on the National Association
for the Advancement of Colored
People to make an "unequivocal
rejection" of a Negro leader's po-
sition on service of Negroes in
the armed forces.
The NAACP had not imme-
diately replied.
Morse was referring to a state-
ment by A. Philip Randolph, pres-
ident of the Brotherhood of Sleep-
ing Car Porters (AFL), that many
Negroes would refuse to bear
arms, if drafted, unless the Army
abandoned its segregation policy.
Morse told the Senate he had
received a telegram from Walter
White, head of the NAACP, which
did not make it clear whether
White was definitely against the
course outlined by Randolph.
"I would like to have an un-
equivocal rejection of Mr. Ran-
dolph's program in all of its as-
pects from Mr. White," Morse
The senator said he is a director
of NAACP, but added he would
resign immediately if the organ-
ization identified itself "in any
degree whatsoever" with Ran-
dolph's plan.

University residence halls, the
Michigan League and the Uni-
versity hospital will all draw on
its services.
Herbert P. Wagner, business
manager of the hospital, has been
appointed business manager of
the Food Service Building and
Bruce K. Lemon, Detroit bus-
inessman, has been named gen-
eral manager of Food Service.
Wagner is a University graduate.

The University has expanded

the purchase of the Stadium Hills
Golf Course.
Present plans call for the use
of the property for a self- liquid-
ating housing project for faculty

Briggs, University vice-president.
The property may be leased as
a golf course until construction
of the housing project is begun.
