Here are some comments from
the campus:
David Segal, '49: "The ban is
just another -aspect of the ju-
venile treatment of the student
body. This is no longer an in-
stitution of education, but
merely one of instruction."
Mary Shattuck, Grad.: "I think
the Regents are justified. There

are too many organizations who
might attach their political opin-
ions to the University. The Uni-
-ersity has to protect its reputa-
Glenna Moore, '49: "flow can
the students become politically
educated now? We are the vot-
ers of today and tomorrow. We
have a right to learn as much as
possible about the men and
parties for which we will vote."
John Lincoln, Grad.: "The ac-
tion of the Regents is strange, in-
deed. It's up to them to encour-
age, rather than discourage, inter-
est in the political campaigns, As
a part of his education, a student
ought to acquaint himself with
the issues of the day."
R. B. Wilson, '49E: 'I believe the
ban is a good thing. I think the
question is similar to teaching re-
ligion in the schools. I'm not in
favor of that."
Jeanette R. Brown, '50: "People
of college age should be able to
decide for themselves, after hear-
ing all arguments, just what they
want, without having the Uni-
versity tell them that they are
incapable of making their own de-
Katherine Truesdell, Grad.:
"The ban is a good idea. The Un-
iversity is a state institution, and
must not be involved in political
controversy. Prejudices against
colleges result when the public'
associates them with political

for years or just completed a con-
tinuous two-week trip to the
port," Aronoff said. Taking them'
all aboard, the Exodus weighed
anchor and departed against the
orders of port officials.
Their interception by British
ships off Palestine is well known.
Put aboard prison ships, the ref-
ugees were returned to France.
"They remained aboard the ships
56 days in port and then were
clubbed ashore to concentration
camps," Aronoff said.
Pointing to the 35,000 refugees
confined on Cyprus, Aronoff de-
clared, "The fight in Palestine
today is to determine whether
Jews have the right to live in
this world." He urged the stu-
dents to set the pace for Ann Ar-
bor in raising funds to establish a
national home for the Jews.
List Two New

able in the Business Administra-

Vet Requisitton
Dead line Set
May 4 Last Day for
Veterans' requisitions for books
and supplies must be signed by
faculty members by May 1 and no
bookstore will honor requisitions
for this semester after May 4, ac-
cording to Miss Myra Biddlecome
of the University Business Office.
Miss Biddlecome explained that
the University advances the cost
of the books and supplies to the
bookstores and is later reimbursed
by the Veterans Administration.
The deadline is necessary so
that the Cashier's Office can
check veterans' accounts to see
that purchases and payments for
fees and tuition do not exceed
the $500 authorized by the Veter-
ans Administration, Miss Biddle-
come said.
Bookstore managers explain
that after the deadline they have
to clear up temporary charge ac-
counts, alphabetize requisitions
and correct errors before meeting
a later deadline set for them.

ena said that his plans are still
general. However, he hopes to go

"Pocketa. pocketa, pocketa" -
by-word of Walter Mitty-is the
type of billards played by Jimmy
Caras, former world pocket bil-
liards champion.
And if you want to see him
"pocketa" few balls, drop in to the
Union's University Club at 12:30
p.m. today, or the Billiard Room
from 3 to 5 p.m. or 8 p.m. There
you will see Caras, surrounded by
a crowd of unbelievers, demon-
strating the skill that makes him
the "best trick shot artist in the
billiard world." and which won
him the world's pocket billiard
championship in 1936 and 1938.
"Trick shot artist? He's a ma-
gician!" said Dick Hitt, Union
publicity director. "I don't know
how he does it, but this fellow can
sink 15 balls in one stroke, use
two cues at the same time, and
make the most fantastic tine(
shots you ever saw!"
Hitt said that Caras' exhibition
would be divided into three
phases..The first will be a demon-
stration of the fundamentals of
good billiard form. Anyone who
asks can have personal instruc-
tion from Caras during this time,
Hitt said. Championship form and
how he won the billiard title on
two occasions will be the second
phase of Caras' show. Finally, he
will turn to trick shots-his spe-

ment, which begins next Sunday,"
Hitt explained.
Caras has been touring the

stimulate interest in the inter-
collegiate billiards tournament.
