Student Mary Hook Boosts
Father in Campaign Bid
"How does it feel to be a candidate's daughter?"
For Mary Louise Hook, '51Ph.Ed., this has become on old question,
since her father, Frank Hook, has been a member of Congress since
the time she was four.
During that time she has spent her winters going to school in
Washington, D.C. and the summers at her home in Ironwood, Mich-
Igan. Naturally she has witnessed her father embroiled in one
political campaign after another during these years.-
As a rule Mary Louise never tells many of her friends that
her father is a Congressman because she says, "being a Congress-
man's daughter they expect me to act differently."
Now, however, her father is in the midst of the biggest campaign
of his career, running for United States senator from Michigan, and
daughter Mary Louise is right in there fighting with him.
* *, * *
A sophomore and physical education major, she has taken a
very active part in the activities of the Young Democrats Club,
including their canvassing program in the "U" terraces and work at
the Democratic headquarters in Ann Arbor.
She carries on her biggest personal campaign in Stockwell
Hall where she lives. Although her roommate is a Republican,
she says her bulletin boards are covered with Democratic litera-
ture, which she eagerly circulates among the girls in the dorm.
At dinner time she often enters into heated political discussions,
and although she is usually outnumbered by Republicans, she
says "I think I have persuaded two or three girls to vote for Dad."
* ** *
WHEN ASKED what she thinks the chances are that her father
will beat the Republican candidate, Homer Ferguson, she said, "I only
know what my father tells me-and he says things look very good."
"Still," she said, "I don't expect to get much sleep on election

Peace Future Worries UWF;
Will Sponsor Forum Today

Although the United World
Federalist has no axe to grind in
the coming election battle, the
group is 'sharp' on the political
future of the whole world, accord-
ing to Larry Fuchs, national sec-
retary and president of the stud-
ent division, UWF.
"If we are to live out our lives,
something mustrbe done about
preventing a Third World War,"
Fuch§ told The Daily.
"BOTH THE U.S. and Russia
are 'keys' to the success of a world
government. They must accept
their responsibility in leading the
world," Fuchs said.
Fuchs commented that a res-
olution asking the President to
consult with other nations on
strengthening the United Na-

tions would reach the House
floor in the next session. He was
neither optimistic or pessimis-
tic over prospects for its pas-
He commented that if Russia
fails to accept a sovereign world
"she is refusing protection and
choosing suicide."
to "find the answer to the peace
problem," will be a UWF Round-
table discussion at:7:30 p.m. to-
day, in the Union.
In honor of UN Week, the topic
will be "Is the Machinery of the
UN Adequatehto Prevent War."

"No amount of double talk can
now conceal the complete sub-
mergence of the Board of Re-
gents and Gov. Kim Sigler to
the General Motors Corp.
"Last Saturday the Regents and
Gov. Sigler said publicly the ser-
vice which has been suspended
will be restored. They said the
charge brought by the General
Motors Corp. was without funda-
tion-and they gave the Service, its
director and its personnel a clean

Walking Man
Laughs Last
The identity of a local "Walk-
ing Man" had the Ann Arbor Po-
lice Department completely baf-
fled for almost a week.
A few days ago townspeople be-
gan complaining to the police that
a rather sinister looking charac-
ter was prowling around their
backyards, and studiously exam-
ining the bushes and shrubbery.
The Police Department imme-
diately got on the trail and ap-
prehended the mystery man, only
to discover that he is Leslie Mc-
Kinley, a conservation officer.
McKinley explained his suspi-
cious looking activities by telling
the police that the Conservation
Department is surveying the city
for Common Barberry, a plant
that spreads grain rust. He ex-
pects to be peering around town
for about a month.

night at Hill Auditorium.

that the position of director was
abolished and the service which
has continued satisfactorily for
four years is to be reorganized.
This in effect is abolishing the
Service as it is now constituted.
"The Workers' Educational
Service was abolished over the
protests of the University Presi-
dent Alexander G. Ruthven and
in flagrant disregard of the
needs and wishes of the 65,000
wage-earners it served.9
"The action by the Regents and
Gov. Sigler simply confirms the
fact that the University of Michi-
gan has become a branch plant of
the General Motors Corp.

"WE ARE NOT surprised that
Kim Sigler carried out the bidding
of the General Motors Corp., but
we are deeply shocked at the rev-
elation that the University of
Michigan has had no more regard
for the responsibility to education
than to fire the one educator in
the State who has won nation-
wide recognition by his devotion
to workers' education and democ-
"The CIO pledges to do every-
thing in its power to restore
Lansing to the people of Michi-
gan and to win the University
back from its status as a Gener-

"We shall certainly demand
when the Legislature meets that
an investigation be made of all
the circumstances surrounding
this betrayal of the people of
Michigan, with particular regard
to contributions by GM officials
and stooges to Kim Sigler's cam-
paign fund."
