'U Education
For Workers
Will Continue
Courses To Start
AgainThis Year
The Board of Regents announ-
ced yesterday that the University's
courses in workers' education will
be resumed.
The Regents said that the pro-
gram, which was suspended them-
porarily last month, will probably
start again before the end of this
yesterday, they reaffirmed the
University's interest in adult edu-
cation for workers and authorized
the continuation of an expen-
mental program.
Plans will be made at once to
organize the program in accor-
dance with the "educational ob-
jectives of the University."
They listed these objectives: "to
offer additional opportunities for
general education; to equip work-
ers more adequately for the exer-
cise of rights and responsibilities
of citizenship in a democracy."
THE REGENTS said they had
studied the program for several
weeks. They surveyed it "with the
intention of continuing aspects of
the program which in the light of
experience are deemed appropriate
for the University to offer."
Since the course was begun in
1944, instructors have taught
collective bargaining, labor leg-
islation, health and safety, so-
cial philosophies, labor journal-
Ism, social security and parlia-
mentary procedure to some 200-
000 workers.
Then, last May, a minor GM ex-
ecutive charged that lectures he
had attended contained "Marxist
GOV. SIGLER ordered an in-
vestigation, and , ubsequently the
whole program was suspended.
When the Regents decided Vt
resume the program, which is
part of the University's exten-
sion services, they removed a
hotly-disputed issue from the
state political campaign.
G. Mennen Williams, Democratic
candidate for governor, had sharp-
ly criticized the Governor for sus-
pending the courses.
After yesterday's announcement
he congratulated the Regents for
"a return to liberalism."
* * *
IN THEIR announcement, the
Regents said that the education
program was due to come up for
review in May anyway.
"In any program of an experi-
mental nature the work must
from time to time come under
review by those responsible for
its policies," they said.
The courses had been supported
by legislative grant for their first
three years, but were financed
from the University's general fund
for the last year.
* *
THE REGENTS aso accepted
gifts amounting to $29,573.38 and
approved the following appoint-
Prof. Leigh C. Anderson as
chairman of the chemistry depart-
ment; Prof. Charles L. Stevenson
as acting chairman of the philos-
ophy department for this year.
Other appointments were: Harry
Bell Benford as assistant profes-
sor of naval architecture and ma-
rine engineering for 1948-49;

Richard E. Lippincott as assistant
director for administration in the
Survey Research Center.

(Daily Sports Editor)
Michigan still reigns supreme over Big Nine football.
The Wolverines demonstrated their supremacy before 85,938 fans
yesterday as they rolled over previously unbeaten Northwestern, 28-0
at Michigan Stadium, to notch their 18th straight victory.

Natioal News Round-Up
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-The National Labor Relations Board ruled to-
day that strikers are ineligible to vote in plant elections if their jobs
have been permanently taken by other workers.
The decision, one of the most important since the Taft-Hartley
Act became effective 14 months ago, applied only to so-called "eco-
nomic" strikes-not to any walkouts over alleged unfair labor prac-
tices by an employer.
WASHINGTON-Labor organizations claiming a combined
membership of more than 15 million workers were lined up
tonight behind 16 Democratic candidates for the U.S. Senate.
Control of the Senate could turn on the success or failure
of the concentrated drive. The GOP had only a six-vote margin
during the 80th Congress.
DETROIT--Michigan Bell wage negotiators will meet tomorrow
at a State Mediation Board bargaining table in an attempt to settle
their differences.
WASHINGTON-President Truman anounced today a $14,400,-
000,000 military spending budget for next fiscal year-an increase
of more than $2,000,000,000,000 over this year-and ordered a "vig-
orous" program to build up and train military reserve units.
But he emphasized that his moves were not caused by any
worsening of the world situation. In fact, he said, world tension
has eased slightly and there has been some improvement in the
Russian attitude. He said the Russians are better about talking things
Pranksters Get in Game
With Faked ID Cards
A 28-year-old blond divorcee and wide-eyed five year old kinder-
garten major sat hand in hand in the student section of the Michigan
stadium yesterday-in open defiance of the University's recent student
ticket ruling.
Or at least they could have, as far as the stadium's ticket takers
were concerned.
FOR HAD THE DUCAT CHECKERS examined more closely the
photographs on the ID cards presented by two Daily reporters, they
would have noted little resemblance to their unshaven owners.
One of the ID cards pictured its owner as he appeared some
14 years ago, and the other photo looked as much like its holder
as an orangutan resembles Betty Grable.
Yesterday morning, struck by the sudden desire to test the powers
of observation of the gate guardians, the two Daily pranksters thumbed
through magazines and old photographs looking for unreasonable
facsimiles of their own likenesses.

SL To Protect

The Student Legislature's Better

"THE SALESMAN must have
this card in order to get into the
student residence and sell his
goods," Harris said.
The card will carry the ven-
dors name, the name and ad-
dress of the company for which
he works, and his plan of mer-
chandising, cash, downpayment
or C.O.D.
Harris stressed the fact that the
Bureau's work could not succeed
without the cooperation of the
students. "Thesalesman mustbe
made to show his card from the
Better Business Bureau before be-
ing allowed to sell his goods, or
the plan will not work," Harris
THE WORKINGS of the Bureau
will be controlled by a board of
five students, an SL member, an
IFC member, a representative from
Pan Hel, an independent man and
an independent woman. The board
will consider all disputes and ques-
tions that arise from the opera-
tion of the Bureau.

To Dampen
Sellout Crowd Packs
Stands at Grid Clash
The fans were literally hanging
from the rafters-some 87,000 of
them-during yesterday's sellout
gridiron clash between the Michi-
gan Wolverines and the North-
western Wildcats.
Temporary bleachers were
thrown up to handle the overflow
but still spectators perched atop
section marker signs and sat in the
stadium aisles. Even threatening
skies failed to hold down the size
of thi first sell-out throng of the
1948 season.
THE HEAVY overcast did give
raincoat peddlers a rushing busi-
ness prior to the game. There were
only intermittent periods of misty
rain during the game, however.
On hand was a sizable con-
tingent of Northwestern fans,
most of whom arrived late Fri-
day. White-clad cheerleaders
led the NW rooting section.
During halftime they unloosed a
purple, paper mache, Wildcat

When Stan Kentonhcomes to

tremendous effort and constant
