After Weary Orientlat ion P Ieriod
The Daily today inaugurates its new seies of picture stories by
taking its readers along with a typical fre:hman coed on her first
:rowded week at the University of Michigan.
Attractive Audrey Parnes was selected at random by the Daily's
reporter-photographer team as she waited in one of those endless
lines that seem to plague the incoming freshman student. The green-
ayed lass, who hails from Shaker Heights, Ohio, was accompanied by
the Daily team as she went through the entire orientation period and
attended her first class at the University.
Just three weeks out of high school, Audr-y is one of some g800
freshmen from throughout the nation who entered the University
this term. She will find the campus a litlie less crowded than her
predecessors since ,a large mid-term graduating class brings total en-
rollment down near the 19,000 marker.
Although as confused as most freshmen here for the first time;
and confessing some misgivings about this first step away from the
ties of family life, Audrey fell easily into the orientation routine.
After being assigned to a room in Stockwell Hall, she underwent a
rigid physical examination, intelligence tests and was ushered through
the registration procedure by an advisor.
However before entering the classroom routine the newly-arrived
coed got a taste of University social life, attending the J-Hop with a
former high school classmate who entered the University last Fall.
An only child, Audrey is the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Max J.
Parnes of Shaker Heights. She was an honor student at Cleveland
Heights High School where she took part in a number of activities
including student government and publications.
The University's "good reputation" and the desire to "try life
on my own" prompted her to come to Ann Arbor. A composed lass
who will celbrate her 18th birthday Feb. 26, Audrey says she plans
to enter the field of education.

OFF TO J-HOP-Leaving the Stockwell elevator with her room-
mate, Esther Margolis, Audrey wastes no time in becoming ac-
quainted with Michigan's traditional dances. Her date was Mar-
vin Lubeck, a home town friend. She said she enjoyed the Hop
very much: "I'm spoiled after my first week-end here."
PLAN FOR SURVIVAL:
United World Federalists
Call for, Global Government

A,

The United World Federalists
presented their plan for a world
government to new members at a
meeting last night in the Union.
Stating their goal for an in-
ternational federation, Harry
Blackwell, president of UWF said,
"No activity needs more backing
than the movement for peace. The
Today Is Fial
Day for SBRE
Today is the last time for stu-

UWF is the core of such initiative
in the United States today and is
working to influence the people
to this way of thinking."
Reason for World Government
In developing his reasons,
Blackwell explained that the
problem of world friction has
reached such proportions that
present international law can not
handle it successfully and wars
result. "What we need is an effi-
cient world government to admin-
ister these relationships properly.
Only in this way can we hope for
peace."
