Graduation Ceremonies
Give Way to New Look

Graduates receiving their di-
plomas at the 104th Commence-
ment, to be held June 12, will
find that tradition has disappear-
ed and mass production efficiency
has taken its place.
In the past, President Alexand-

Student Delegates
To StudyAssembly
While the Interim Committee
of the Model UN Council works
out plans this summer for the
fall semester, Bill Miller, Interna-
tional Committee chairman of the
Student Legislature, will represent
the organization at a national
congress of the Collegiate Council
for the UN.
Delegates from major colleges
throughout the nation have been
Invited to form a study group at

Arrangements have been made
for the collegiate Council to meet
foreign delegations and especially
the United States delegation.
They will attend Assembly, Se-
curity Council and committee
meetings to see how the UN func-
At the same time, the congress
will afford an interchange of
ideas on what is being accom-
plished by other Model UN groups
on campuses across the country.
Duplicate nstructions
The University organization
hopes to duplicate the structure
of the United Nations A§6embly
with its various committees. It is
complete with an Atomic Energy
Commission, under which a sub-
committee has been formed to
work with the Phoenix Project.
This committee is the first on
campus formed expressly in sup-
port of the new war memorial.
By next fall the newly organ-
ized group intends to hold month-
ly General Assembly meetings.
They hope to further interna-
tional understanding of the Unit-
ed Nations and its scope on a
campus level.

er G. Ruthevn personally hand-
ed the sheepskin to each and
every scholar along with a big
cheery smile. This year, accord-
ing to Herbert G. Watkins, Secre-
tary and Assistant Vice President
of the University, Dr. Ruthven
will commission the deans of the
14 schools and colleges to pass out
the diplomas to their units.
Twin Lines
And the 3,603 candidates for
degrees will not move to the plat-
form in a double line as last year,
The scholars will approach in
twin double lines to speed the
commencement ceremony!
Although students will see less
of pomp and circumstance, for
the first time since 1943 they will
walk away from the ceremony
with an actual diploma. In the
last five years the interval be-
tween Commencement and the
end of the examination period has
been so short, records could not
be completed in time, according
to Secretary Watkins.
Real Degrees
This year, after getting the
'token' paper, the scholars will
make a recessional march across
Ferry Field to the Intramural
Building where real degrees will
be distributed.
The exercises will begin at 5
p.m. on Ferry Field (an hour
earlier than usual). But faculty
and graduates will assemble on
the campus at 3:55 p.m. and
march down State St. to the field
at 4:15 p.m. led by the University
Marching Band.
Prof. Glenn L. Alt, of the civil
engineering department, who
serves as Chief Marshal, will
supervise the procession and the
seating of the graduates. Prof.
Leigh C. Anderson, of the chem-
istry department, will act as Mar-
shall for the faculty.
Observatory Open
To PublicTonight
Tonight, between 9 and 10:30
p.m. students and townspeople
will have an opportunity to viewj
the multi-ringed planet Saturn
and double stars at the observa-
tory on the fifth floor of Angell
Visitors' night will be cancelled
if the sky is cloudy. Children must
be accompanied by adults.

DISCUSS PASSAGE OF MUNDT-NIXON BILL-Reps. Karl E. Mundt (Rep., S.D.), John McDowell
(Rep., Pa.), Richard M. Nixon (Rep., Calif.) and Richard B. Vail (Rep., Ill.) (left to right) discuss
House passage of the Mundt-Nixon anti-Communism Bill in Washington. The roll call vote was
319 to 58, sending the measure to the Senate. Reps. Mundt and Nixon were the sponsors of the bill.

Phi Kappa Phi, national schol-

ulty members and 320 students
into the Michigan chapter yester-
Both graduate and undergrad-
uate students in the various
schools and colleges of the Uni-
versity were included in the group
of new members.
Faculty initiates were: Prof.
Richard C. Boys, of the English
department; Prof. Claude A. Eg-
gertsen, of the education depart-
ment; Prof. Walter J. Emmons, of
the highway engineering depart-
ment; Prof. Paul H. Jeserich, of
the dentistry department; Prof.

Dutcher has taken an intense
interest in Operation Phoenix. At
the last session, before he sur-
rendered the gavel to Moody, he
spoke of the job in store for the
Legislature regarding the Atomic
research project. Since the idea
of a functional memorial to 'U'
war dead came from the Student
Legislature in 1946, Dutcher feels
that the Legislature has a share
in its development.
Phoenix Project
"During the summer, students
should talk up Phoenix in their
home towns," Dutcher said. "A
letter to the editor of a hometown
paper, with a copy of The Daily
Extra, will do a lot to push Phoe-
nix on its way," he added.
Dutcher said that the biggest
job of the Legislature in the com-
ing year would be the coordina-
tion of the various campus activ-
ities including those related to the
Phoenix Project.
Praising the career of his pred-
ecessor, newly elected president
Moody said that he hoped fur-
therdto develop the legislature
into a body that would be gen-
uinely reflective of campus opin-
ion and would be able to help
the students.

"Hm..." This succinct corn-t
ment was typical of rave judge-
ments being passed gaily around
concerning the New Gargoyle, at
a small student publications party
last evening.

ered to await the Atomic Age in
a ferry-built, jury-rigged cyclo-

with fact and fallacy about race.

the Garg, was easily the most
vocal of the group.
"Soda, please," he commented,
thus giving utterance to three
syllables, and breaking the pre-
vious record of two, set by "Silent
Ed" McKinlay in April, 1947, with
the bags loaded.
Rhapsody in Pink
"This Garg is different," rhap-
sodized a" small, pink man, chief-
ly notable for straw huraches and
a large accumulation of black-
market avoirdupois, which hecar-
ried in a blue Gladstone. "It's got
straight literary material," he
added, as they dumped him into
the teapot.
Any further remarks he might
have had dwindled to a mere,
"Twinkle, twinkle, twinkle, twin-
Oither reactions of the con-
vivial ones were just as startling.
William Hampton, quondamArt
Editor of the Garg, managed to
utter an ecstatic "Glub!" before
he was pinked rather neatly by
a passing neutrino,
Only Doug Parker, future man-
aging editor of the Garg, man-
aged to express himself at any
length. "The Gargoyle, will make
it: appearance on campus Mon-
day," he said, "completely revised.
In it, there will be photographic
features, straight literary mater-
ial, and an anthology of the best
college cartoons of the year."
Holy Smokes!
Parker paused and looked re-
flectively at a pile of ashes that
represented a. former Daily edi-
tor. Then he added, "Just think-
ing of the possible scope of the
project fires the imagination, and
enables one to lift his head above
the anxiety and dissatisfaction
that characterize the times we
live in."
He was stoned, screaming, by
the physics department stalwarts.
UWF Inauigirates
Smlmner Council
A temporary council to con-
tinue United World Federalist
work on campus during the com-
ing summer months was set up at
the final chapter meeting of the
Those who are to serve on the
council are Don Hope, Catherine
Warren, Gilles Coros and Annette
Rich. The members will aid in
forming an adult UWF chapter,
and will keep in contact with the
newly-organized state branch of-
fice until regular activities are
resumed in the fall,

Craig Defends
Religious Role
In Education
Religious education should be
included in the curriculum of all
educational levels because it helps
provide the moral imperative
which is "the whole undergirding
of society."
This was the opinion of Rev.
John G. Craig, pastor of First
Congregational Church in Iowa
City, who addressed the annual
Student Religious Association
banquet last night on the subject,
"Religion, Morality, and Knowl-
Card House
Those who assert that morality
and knowledge can exist by
themselves without the third
member of "the modern trinity,"
religion, are "building a house of
cards," Mr. Craig declared.
"If men have not the will and
the purpose provided by religion,
there is no sure foundation for
morality and knowledge."
He laid the responsibility for
increasing the importance of re-
ligion in the community on the
Force Reversal
"Intellectual currents in the
community provided by individual
interest in religion should be the
impetus to force reversal of the
recent Supreme Court Decision on
religious education," the former
SRA program chairman elaborat-
ed in an interview.
Special Inter-Faith awards to
Keitha Harmon, president of SRA
and Win Price were announced.
Miss Harmon won the Arnold
Schiff Award while Price was pre-
sented the annual B'nai B'rith
foundation award.
Atom Exhibit
Shown Here
A traveling exhibition display-
ing the uses of atomic energy,
prepared by. LIFE magazine in
consultation with the United
States Atomic Energy Commission
is currently to be shown from
10 a.m. to 10 p.m. in the Exf'Abi-
tion Room, Mezzanine, Rackham
The giant pictures reveal the
effects of atomic heat rays on
the people of Hiroshima after the
first Atom Bomb was dropped in
August, 1945, and the damage
caused by the two atomic bomb-
ings of Japan.
Also on exhibition are the
peacetime uses atomic energy can
be put to in the development of
agriculture and industry. (The
University hopes to help perfect
atomic power for peace with the
Phoenix project.)
The exhibit will remain at the
University until May 30.

registration schedule, according to
Miss Wortsman. Next year the A
to F group will be last.
"We have 5,000 copies to hand
out. This method will eliminate
long lines. We also plan to have
five 'Ensian staffers at the pick-
up dec at all times to insure
quick distribution," Miss Worts-
man explained.
Students who glance through
the hot-off-the-presses 'Ensian
today will find one extra laugh,
according to Editor Dawson.
Somehow, the publishers, who
also produce the Michigan State

College yearbook, have managed
to subsitute the picture of an un-
known gentleman for that of fa-
mous alumnus Louis Elbel, com-
poser of "The Victors."
"We expect Elbel's picture to
show up in the faculty section of
the MSC book," Dawson comment-
