Cost of Living...

IT WAS EXPECTED AND IT CAME.
The long, but fearfully awaited increase
in board and room rates for next year has
finally been announced. The news was first
given to residence hall presidents at a spe-
cial meeting in Dean Walter's office Tues-
day and was transmitted by them to their
individual dormitories.
The boost will increase present rates by
about eight per cent. However, in covering
eleven more days of service, the actual in-
crease will be only five and one-half per
cent.
This, of course, assumes that the students
will be using that service. As is well known
at present and a factor that is certainly
taken into account in making up the rates,
students in no way utilize all the services
for which they pay. And, although a nuim-
ber of students will be benefited by the
longer period of food service, an almost
equally large number will be spending
double for their meals.
The alternative would undoubtedly be
charging a higher over-all rate and then
allowing refunds for students who prefer
to eat certain meals out or who will be
finished with examinations before the meal
service is ended. It is difficult to determine
whether paying a higher initial rate would
be preferrable to the present system as far
as students are concerned.
But it is clearly evident which alterna-
tive the University can afford to take.
And the students who go home week-ends
or are forced to omit certain meals, will
just have to be expendable.
The necessity for increasing rates seems

equally obvious, unfortunate as it may be.
It has been apparent to all of us that the
University has been operating on rates this
semester much below their expenses. We
all know that prices have been on a steady
increase in the past year and that they show
every indication of continuing upward.
It is clear, too, that the University must
up the salaries of its employes in accord-
ance with wage boosts given in local in-
dustry. An increase in salaries of student
help is also expected before next year. This
should at least partially alleviate the burden
for the students who will be most adversely
affected by the increased rates.
Certainly, the boost will still be a great
hardship for the students, as well as a
greater one for those who must finance
their education in other ways. It is of
course particularly difficult because of the
other higher cost of living expenses under
which students are now suffering, aside
from their increased University fees.
Many families supported by men in pro-
fessions which do not provide cost of
living bonuses and wage boosts will have
extreme difficulty in keeping a son or
daughter in school.
Mingled with the bad news of the in-
crease, however, is the announcement that
board and room rates will be combined into
one fee from now on. Previously money from
the room fund could not be used for food
costs. Under the new arrangements, how-
ever, promise is made that "about 80 per
cent of the total rate will be allocated to the
purchase and preparation of food.'
With this hope for better meals next year,
it will be a little less difficult to hand over
the extra 55 dollars to the University. How-
ever, the food complaints in the quads ii,
the past two years will be nothing to the
clamor which will arise if the promise for
improvement does not become a reality next
fall.

MAT TER OF FACT:
Little E ore Lost

By JOSEPH ALSOP
HEiRE is precious little love lost between
the rivals in the great struggle for Ore-
gon. Governors Thomas E. Dewey and Har-
old E. Stassen are fighting each other here
for very survival. Each knows and admits it.
Each has mobilized his sharpest operatives
and thrown in painfully large amounts of
cash in order to win. And as politicians will
in these circumstances, each regards the
other with the approximate enthusiasm of a
man finding a slug in his salad.
Ironically, the always fallible experts
expect a very close outcome in this Oregon
primary. If this is correct, the chief bene-
ficiary of all the Dewey-Stassen sound and
fury is more than ever likely to be Senator
Arthur H. Vandenberg. Yet if Vandenberg
is nominated, it can be said on highest
authority that he will serve as President
for only one term. Political logic also sug-
gests that he would probably choose either
Dewey or Stassen as his running-mate and
heir.
In prospects as well as in age, therefore,
these two bitter rivals may be taken as
standing for the Republican future, just as
Senator Robert A. Taft represents the Re-
publican past. The present primary has a
special interest, as a sort of agitated show-
case in which the pair are, willy nilly, very
much on view together.
The contrast between them begins at the
beginning, with the facades they present to
he world. Stassen is coolly self-confident,
lacking any apparent awareness of an aud-
ience, and calmly deliberate in decision and
action. Dewey, on the other hand, is always
aware of his audience. He plainly calculates
his effects. He makes a show of his briskness
and decisiveness, which, though real, seem
also intended to impress. Stassen, one sus-
pects, has always ruled those around him
without effort. Dewey has always had to
assert himself in order to dominate his en-
vironment.

It is this visible effort to be master that
causes so many people to be put off by Dew-
ey.
Finally, in the basic realm of ideals, Dewey
stands for sensible fact-finding, whether the
facts be the implications of Soviet foreign
policy, or the great social changes of the
Roosevelt years. On the domestic front, he
says in effect, "I believe in everything that
has been done, but I shall do it much, much
better," adding under his breath, "and I
shan't make any further innovations unless
~I have to." This credo, scorned by fools, is
in truth the essence of classical conserva-
tism, without which democratic politics
could not be carried on. In foreign policy, his
approach is much the same-to do better,
more rapidly and more firmly just about
what is now being done.
It is just in this realm of ideas, in con-
trast, that Stassen is most puzzling. Not
so very long ago, he was advocating quali-
fied world government, and contributing
to the General Motors strike fund. Now he
has published a book which, as Arthur
Schlesinger, Jr. remarked, places him in
domestic politics slightly to the Right of
Senator Taft. Ile is also beating the drum
for dropping our own economic iron cur-
tain along the border of the Soviet sphere,
and above all, for legal suppression of the
Communist party.
In the realm of ideas, in fact, the advan-
tage must be given to Dewey, who has grown
greatly since his own experiments in politi-
cal expediency in 1940. Yet anyone who
watches Stassen in action cannot help but
feel that the big, impressive man would de-
vclop greatly under the burden of respon-
sibility. It is silly to pretend that either Stas-
sen or Dewey is a "liberal," as both fashion-
ably claim. But with all their enmity, Dew-
ey and Stassen jointly promise a rebirth of
intelligent American conservatism, which is
already something to be grateful for after
the past sixteen years.

(Oily' Bill
THE POWERFUL BLOC in Washingto
~which is attempting to pass the Tide-
lands Oil Bill (to transfer the mineral rights
to the states and hence to the oil companies
operating the lobby) used new tactics when
they forced the bill onto the Senate calen-
dar for consideration, without sending it to
a committee as is the usual Senate proce-
dure.
The whole oily history of the Tidelands
Bill is indicative of the righteousness of
the cause which is. pushing it.
Last year the Supreme Court ruled that
the lands in off-shore waters were the
property of the national government. The
oil interests immediately submitted a bill
similar to the one now being presented, and
it was vetoed by President Truman.
Certainly, there is nothing beneficial to
the majority of the people to be gained
from the Tidelands Bill. If it were passed,
the royalties from oil wells would go into
the State treasuries, but it would logically
follow that the states should then be re-
sponsible for the upkeep on these lands. And
then where is the profit?
The only profit would be in the hands
of the large oil corporations who are so
anxious to get the oil dealings into the
hands of politicians they believe they can
deal with. One of these would be the At-
torney General of California, a gentle-
man who Drew Pearson reports as not
only the legal representative of the state
but also the head of a large law firm
which handles the business of the inter-
ested oil companies. He is among those
who have lobbied in Washington for the
bill's passage.
The profits from the Tideland Bill will
consist of less money in the national treas-
ury (at a time when our national defense
seems to be heading us towards higher gov-
ernment costs than ever before), very little
increase in the state treasuries, more money
in the oil companies, and a few misguided
votes for the "philanthropic" Congressmen
who are giving so much to "their states" by
passing this legislation.

BERKELEY SQUARE, with Don Mitchell,
Marilyn Scheel and Joyce Henry.
"BERKELEY SQUARE," the fantasy by
John Balderston whic the depart-
ment of speech has selected for its final
production of the season, is an unorthodox
admixture of comedy and quasi-tragedy
that may or may not leave you satisfied,
depending on your taste for the curious. For
my part, I felt that its moments of comedy
were so decidedly superior to its frequent
lapses into the melodramatic that I am at a
loss to understand why its author didn't
content himself with writing a straightfor-
ward, unadulterated satire and letting it go
at that.
As you may know, Balderston hit upon a
rather novel device in transferring his prin-
ciple character out of modern times and
into the high society of 18th century Lon-
don, all of which was suggested, my program
states, by a posthumous fragment by Henry
James. In any case, the device lends itself
very suitably to humorous exploitation and
permits the hero to deliver a good many
lines thathbecome highly amusing from his
unusual time perspective. At the same time,
Balderston has managed to put all of this
together in such a manner as to achieve
several moments of mild suspense.
Whatever may be said concerning the
intrinsic merits or demerits of the play

itself, however, there can be no doubt but
what it was treated very capably by the
present cast. Don Mitchell, as Peter Stand-
ish, the young American who regresses 163
years in history, carried out his role with
a certain amount of genuine spontaneity.
Playing opposite him, Marilyn Scheel, as
Helen Pettigrew, the haunting maiden of
the past, performed that function with a
great deal of grace and charm. The role
of her sister, Kate, which was in some re-
spects the most demanding one of the play,
was effectively handled by Joyce Henry.
Finally, the large portion of comic dialogue
which fell to Edmund Johnson, as Tom
Pettigrew, was in able hands.
Special note should be made, I think, of
the costuming in this production, which
called for some pretty elaborate effects and
which was under the direction of James
Drummond.

To the Editor:
SHE BORING QUESTION of a
w here who gets what money to w
arry on alleged publicity schemes d
or purposes nefarious, or other- o
vise. has always amused me. The a
pectacle of these probes has a- i
vays had somewhat of a comic w:
,)era tinge. Indeed, this was the a
'ase in the present affair, where a
the Daily indicted the Capitalistic a
rganization and then said naive-
y, "The Ralph Neafus were (sic)
lad to divulge the source of theirE
funds: The general sources of T
noney that seem to content the
ditors, "voluntary contributions,
he treasury of the organization, t
nd private bank accounts of the i
members."p
Now this listing of sources may a
uit The Daily editors, but it gives r'
'ise to three questions:
1. Does the Neafus organization c
ell the specific source of their t
money? Obviously no!V
2. Does The Daily staff realize I
that all Communist organizationsf
are instructed by Moscow to tell n
the*truth only when it will help l
Communism? Obviously no!
3. Does it not seem that Thed
Daily staff is favoring the Neafusd
Club in this controversy? Ob-V
viously!
As has been pointed out, probesL
of this sort are just a little ridicu-a
lous - this one even more so be-a
cause the supposedly unbiased
prober -- our newspaper -- seemsa
to be grinding some sort of ax.-

placed the ad we had raised fif-n

dollars in our treasury. The re-s

To the editor:
IN YESTERDAY'S Daily, a head-
line stated, "Dewey Hits,
Stassen Lauds Mundt Bill."
Though I admit that it was hard
to determine exactly what stand,
in regards to the Mundt Bill, Mr.
Dewey took, in his speech he nev-
er attacked the bill, but implicitly
gave it backing. Messrs. Dewey
and Stassen were respectively
contending the wisdom of outlaw-
ing the Communist Party. In that
issue, Dewey took the negative
and Stassen the affirmative. The
Mundt-Nixon Bill was merely a
side issue in that debate, arising
out of Mr. Stassen stating posi-
tively (with qualifications) that
the Mundt Bill would achieve his
desired end of outlawing the C.P.
Mr. Dewey's position as negative

speaker not requiring any affirm-
ative position, he attacked Stas-
sen's premise, claiming that
it was not the intention of either
Mr. Mundt or the Un-American
Committee to outlaw the C.P.,
and in fact, that the bill itself did
not express such an intention.
Since they had both agreed that
the C.P. should be controlled, to
me, the logical implication of Mr.
Dewey's words were, that the
Mundt Bill is good because it dis-
tinctly does not outlaw the Com-
munist Party.
So here we have the anomoly of
two men, each positively stating
that he has an opposite end in
view, and each claiming that the
bill accomplishes his purpose. One
is in favor of making the C.P. il-
legal, and one is against so doing,
yet both hold that this bill is de-
signed for his particular end.
Generally speaking, a law is an
inflexible standard that has cer-
tain flexible limits. But here we
have a law that creates a flexible
standard without any limits, that

lows two men with totally di-
ergent, contradictory views to
laim that this bill is designed to
ccomplish their several ends.
Vhen a law provides this high a
egree of flexibility, it can birth
nly two results-tyranny or an-
rchy. Unfortunately, the world
s not yet ready for the latter,
hile the former seems to have
ttained a high degree of popul-
rity in the last thirty years-
nd especially in Europe,

To the Editor:
E LIVE at Vaughan House. We'
like Vaughan House. We think
he food is good, the housing sat-
sfactory, and we have never com-
)ained about service so far. We
.nd almost t\vo hundred other
esidents.
Last night, we were suddenly
alled to a house-meeting to be
old that we will be moved out of
aughlan House in favor of wo-
men. The excuses given were as
follows: The University wants to
move all single students from Wil-
ow Run to Ann Arbor next semes-
ter. This is obviously an admirable
decision. To execute the task, they
decided to move the men of
Vaughan House to the Quad-
rangles, and have the women from
League Houses move into Vaugh-.
an, and thus give some individuals
a chance to move into town.
Although some of us have taken
a course in Formal Logic, we still
cannot follow that reasoning to a
valid conclusion. How will the
shifting of almost two hundred
fellows increase the total amount
of residence space? As we all
know, there are more men than
women on campus, yet there is
about as much residence-hall
space for men as there is for wo-
men. By what strange fancies'can
the University hope to benefit the
student-body by further decreas-
ing men's residence-hall space in
favor of women? Why cannot the
men from Willow' Run be moved
right into the Quads?
If the University administration
had the least pretention of en-
couraging student-participation in
the ruling of student affairs, we
would have been consulted in the
matter, instead of being merely
summarily informed of the final
decision. The manner in which the
affair was handled shows a com-
plete absence of interest of the
men-in-charge in te desires,
feeings or suggestions of the com-
mon students, like us.
Perhaps next semester, this cold,
calculating, unfathomable, schem-
ing dictatorial board of master-
minds will move the women out of
Stockwell, and by shifting the men
from West Quad to Mosher-
Jordan, meanwhile having cleared
the condemned Maternity Hospi-
tal, so that .

MICHIGANENSIAN FOR 1948; $6.50,
451 PAGES.
FOR THE past seven months, Buck Daw-
son, 1948 'Ensian managing editor, and
his corps of hard working hustlers, have
been telling us that the "new, super duper
'Ensian" is the best thing ever printed on
paper. Exclude the Bible, a few shelves of
classics and some modern works and their
claim is justified.
The 1948 yearbook lives up to all its ad-
vance notices. "Buck" and his staff have
taken the 1947 yearbook, ripped out the
seams, classic format, wasted space and
created a sparkling new Ensian.
From section to section the 'Ensian flows
smoothly. Although it doesn't "read like a
novel" as the staff hoped, dropping the sep-
arate groupings for each school and college
has given the book a new unity of thought
and purpose. Ensian cameramen must have
worked overtime to double the number of
pictures in the yearbook and at the same
time set an extremely high standard for
composition and clarity. Working with these
two changes, the art staff organized 451

last minute by a harried editorial staff also
is a great improvement over last year. From
a dedication to Professor Emeritus Thomas
Clarkson Trueblood, succeeding pages dis-
play the campus and University adminis-
trators in simple and sincere manner.
Then the comical 'Dawson touch' comes
cut and is climaxed in LEER, a take-off on
Gargoyle and national pictorial magazines.
Its humor is in keeping with Gargoyle tra-
(ition.
Section for section the new book shows
improved planning, better technique and a
more complete finished product over last
'ear's 'Ensian.
As hard as the staff tried, a few errors
managed to creep in. The Senior pictures
show the effect of using more than one
photographer. Some pictures are light,
others are dark and the rest vary inbe-
tween. Typographical errors can be found.
One faculty man is incorrectly named and
a union Council member's name is mis-
sp.led.
Very little space is given to the Univer-

Edited and managed by students of
