Quorum Needed To Change Rules
A quorum must attend the Union's constitutional amendment
meeting tomorrow if students want the Union run by its members,
Tom Walsh, Union vice-president, said yesterday.
Pointing to the fact that students "don't even pick the Union's
senior officers under the present setup," Walsh urged members to
turn out at the meeting, to be held at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow in the
Main Ballroom.
Walsh charged that the attitude of faculty members on the Board
of Directors to student representatives was "paternal." On certain

of the committees, the studentz
City's Clocks
Defy Change
To Fast Time
Mayor Calls Present
Setup 'Ridiculous'
Ah, Ah; don't touch that clock
dial-Ann Arbor is still on Eastern
Standard time.
Despite changes to Daylight
Savings Time in Detroit, Ypsilan-
ti and other cities today, Ann Ar-
bor will remain isolated on East-
ern Standard Time at least until
May 3. Action may come from the
city council then towards putting
the city on 'fast" time and elim-
inating the confusing times.
Dr. Frank Robbins, assistant to
the President declared yesterday
that in all likelihood the Univer-
sity would follow Ann Arbor time.
"Our activities are too integrated
with the cities' to risk the confu-
sion that would develop from con-
flicting times," he said.
Mayor William E. Brown, Jr.,
called the whole time setup 'ridi-
culous" and commented favorably
on daylight savings time. 'A reso-
lution will probably come up at
the council meeting and this thing
will be settled once and for all," he
'Confusion' Would Reign'
Investigating his charge that
"confusion would reign," The
Daily found local New York Cen-
tral ticket officials in a quandry.
"I don't know what kind of time
we will operate on," an NYC offi-
cial said. "I can't figure it out at
all. Come down and get the new
schedule; if you can figure it out,
you are a better man than L"
'Standard Procedure'
Airlines and busses will stay on
Eastern Standard time according
to "standard procedure." but In-
terurban busses to Ypsilanti, Kai-
ser-Frazer, and Willow Run air-
port will be one hour earlier to
match the change to Daylight
Savings Time.
In order that Detroit commuters
will have a chance to make their
destinations in time, a 5:15 a.m.
Greyhound bus has been added to
the regular schedule to the Motor
City officials reported.
Preference Poll
Debate Postponed
A debate on the merits of the
Presidential aspirants, which was
to have preceded Tuesday's pre-
ferential poll on campus has been
postponed pending a clarification
of the political speeches ban.
Jay Nolan, chairman of the
Students Committee for Douglas,
said that plans for the debate have
not ceased "though it will be im-
possible to get a debate under way
before the preferential poll." The
proposed meeting would bring sup-
porters of leading candidates on a
platform together to discuss the
campaign issues.

members are merely supposed to
*offer advice to the faculty, and
that advice is often disregarded,
he said.
"The amendments to be acted
upon in the meeting tomorrow are
designed to give students a more
direct and representative voice in
the Union's activities and poli-
cies," Walsh said.
Walsh, who has drawn up one
set of changes, explained that one
of the proposals would place an-
other student on the Finance
Committee, thereby putting the
financial setup "much more in the
Selection's Committee
Another set of amendments,
backed by the Board of Directors,
will come up for approval or re-
jection at the meeting. These pro-
posals ask for a change in the
selection of Union vice-presidents.
Another important Walsh
amendment would give students
a majority on the selections com-
mittee, which chooses senior offi-
cers. Under the present plan, fac-
ulty members outnumber student
representatives of that body.
"The present scheme of con-
ducting union elections gives the
undergraduate schools a dispro-
portionately small representation
on the Board of Directors," Walsh
remarked. He said if the changes
go into effect there will be more
vice-presidents from the under-
graduate schools on the Board.
Students Okay
Split on Qualit
Daily Roundup Reporters this
week probed student's feelings on
such general questions as the
quality of instruction, adequacy
of degree programs, and faculty
grading plans.
Nearly one hundred students
were questioned at random by
Roundup reporters who found
general agreement only on the
need for a faculty grading pro-
posal. Students were about even-
ly split on the other questions.
By about four to one students
questioned felt that some type of
system should be established to
allow students to rate their in-
structors. However, many of those
favoring such a move were du-
bious about its worth. They felt
that such a system would be feas-
ible only if the ratings were used
to weed out incompetent instruc-
tors and encourage other profes-
sors to remedy their weak spots.
Quality of Education
Questioned as to the quality of
their instructions now, students
were not in agreement. About half
felt that present instruction was
good, pointing to concise lectures,
good texts and feeling of accom-
plishment in passing courses.
The other half, who were dis-
satisfied with present instruction,
were more vociferous in giving
reasons. They criticized lack of
individual attention, lack of or-
ganization, grading techniques,
and inability of instructors to "get
ideas across."' Young, inexperi-
enced teachers came in for the
biggest share of criticism.
Degree Programs
Questioned on degree programs

Court Action
In MSC Case
Held Unlikely
James Zarichiy
Could Be Jailed
(Special to The Daily)
EAST LANSING, April 24-The
general impression in Michigan
State College circles today was
that Sen. Matthew Callahan
would not push the case of James
Zarichny, alleged Communist
Zarichny, subpoenad by Calla-
han's Senate Committee on Un-
American Activities, had refused
to say whether or not he was a
Communist. The Attorney Gen-
eral's office advised the Senate
that the student could be jailed
for rcontempt.
But since the Senate session
ends Wednesday and is in recess
until Tuesday, a trial is unlikely.
Students at MSC, according to
Pat McCarthy, editor of the Michi-
gan State News, feel that the mat-
ter will not be pursued further.
The Senate could prepare a case
and try it in court. If found guilty,
Zarichny would get a maximum
sentence of five years, or $1,000
fine or both.
Meanwhile, four MSC groups
joined The University of Michi-
gan's Committee on Academic
Freedom in calling for the aboli-
tion of the Callahan Committee.
The Spartan Citizens Commit-
tee, the AVC, the Progressive
Party and the History and Politi-
cal Science Club charged that the
Callahan Committee is an "in-
strument of political strategy to
timidate and still progressive
thought and action."41

The world's only move in the direction of a federal World Govern-
ment passed when the Lilienthal-Acheson international atomic control
plan was rejected, Dr. Frederick L. Schuman declared yesterday in
the World Government College Forum.
Attacking the Baruch Plan for insisting on removal of the veto on
atomic questions, Schuman said that the American demand for a ma-
jority rule killed this limited World Government by alienating Russia.
"Any coercion of one state upon
another such as this leads to war," Dr. Schuman
he emphasized.

JERUSALEM, April 24-(A---
Jewish Militia fought today to take
possession of a buffer area to seal
off their greatest prize, the port
city of Haifa.
While thousands of weary Arabs
streamed from the city which was
captured by Jews in a spectacular
battle Thursday, Haganah guns
blazed out at Balad Esh Sheikh
and nearby Tirah, two villages
about five miles East of the big
port. The Arab villages are on the
road to Nazareth and Tiberias, #a
city on the Sea of Galilee from
which the' Arabs also have been
driven by the Jews.
Arab Truce
The British said the Arabs ask-
ed for a truce at dawn after an
all-night fight and agreed to sur-
render their arms. When only 22
rifles were turned in, however, the
Jews delivered a new ultimatum
for the delivery of all guns and the
fighting was renewed. The latest
reports said the British had ar-
ranged a temporary truce for the
evacuation of women and children
from the villages.
Dispatches from Haifa said the
Jews were trying to prevent the
evacuation of the 37,000 Arabs re-
maining in the city.
Political Rebuff
