ALL FUNDS COLLECTED will go toward the Hayden Library
fund, to supply books for Michigan's sister university in the islands.
The drive aimed at eventually collecting $50,000 is sponsored
by the Student Legislature.
Buckets will be placed at five conspicuous spots on campus, near
Waterman Gym, at North University and State St., in front of Alumni
Memorial Hall and in the Engineering arch, according to Legislator
MEMBERS OF THE Philippine Club will man the bucket in front

THE UNIVERSITY has had close ties with its sister institution
since the University of the Philippines was established.
Many faculty members have gone to the islands since the
turn of the century to teach and give assistance. The charter
of the University of the Philippines is based on that of Michigan.
Among the faculty members now on campus who have taken
an interest in the University of the Philippines are Professors Roy
Swinton of the engineering school and Harley Bartlett, director of the

PROF. SWINTON has shipped over 15 tons of books to the
Philippine University on his own. He helped to see that the proceeds
of the first Philippine Drive were spent in a way most beneficial
to our adopted university.
The $2,500 went to equip the Health Service there with com-
plete optical equipment, the most pressing need of the University
of the Philippines at the time.
The libraries of the University were almost completely destroyed
in the battle of liberation.
GRADUATE STUDENT Jesus Ferrer of Manila, who graduated
from the University of the Philippines in 1947 said that the only things
left in the library after the battle were the iron bookstands. "There
was no roof," he said.
Books purchased by University student contributions were
beginning to flow into the still insignificant library of the U. of P.
in Ferrer's last semester there.
We were glad to know that students in the University of Michigan
were interested in us," he said.
"After learning of the help that Michigan students were giving
to my alma mater, I was very happy that I could come here to

Two spokesmen of the Western Powers, Gen. Lucius D. Clay and
Britain's Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin revealed attitudes of op-
timism and determination in regard to relations with Russia.
From Berlin Gen. Lucius D. Clay was reported to have said in a
private talk that a firm stand by the Western Powers in Berlin can
lead to the breakup of Soviet domination in eastern Europe.
A responsible source close to the American commander in Ger-

ON THE OTHER side of the po-
litical scene, Gov. Thomas E.
Dewey, campaigning in President
Truman's home state, said the
Democratic administration is
"tired, confused," and "coming
apart at the seams."
Making his second trip into
President Truman's home state
in two weeks in another bid
for Missouri's 15 electoral votes,
Dewey, in an obvious allusion to
the Democratic organization of
the late Tom Pendergast, said,
"It seems particularly appropri-
ate to talk about good govern-

have known how bad a govern-

THE TALK was delivered pri-

parliamentary conference who
visited Berlin Sept. 28.
Clay disclosed then that the
Western Powers tried to buy
food from Poland and Czecho-
slovakia for the besieged Ger-
man capital, but this was
blocked by Russia.
Clay expressed belief lasting
peace in Europe could be reached
if the Western Powers refused to
yield to the Soviet Union.

said the British "have ceased to
be an imperialist race. We domi-
nate nobody." But Russia, he con-
tinued, "is the one country in the
world that is still imperialistic.
"I AM NOT going to worry
about out relations with Russia,"
he said today. "If I cannot get
agreement, the issue that has got
to be settled is can we live to-
gether? What areas do they want
to live in? What is the extent of
