By PHIL DAW SON
More than 40 top religious, civic and labor leaders yesterday
irected their remarks to Gov. Kim Sigler's empty chair in a meeting
ailled to protest the Board of Regents' recent action in revamping
he Workers' Educational Service and firing its director, Arthur A.
lder.
When the Governor failed to keep his 10 a.m. appointment with
he group in Detroit's Book-Cadillac Hotel, they waited an hour and
half and then went ahead with the meeting.

University extension course en-
collments for 1947-48 is equal to
enrollment in the University
proper, according to a report is-
sued by Everett J. Soop, Extension
3ervice director.
Over 21,000 registrations are re-
sorded in the 315 credit courses,
168 non-credit courses and other
ipecial programs offered by the
Rxtension Service.
* * *
SOOP EXPECTED the figures to
remain the same for the present
year.
7,000 students are enrolled In
the credit courses, and over
14,000 in other programs.
Included in 1948-49 registra-
Lions are 1,669 veterans studying
under the GI Bill.

a, statewide basis, offers classes in

ects.

lliam B. Sperry, chairman of the
Lgroup, said.
At the meeting were Episcopal,
Jewish and Roman Catholic re-
ligious leaders as well as repre-
sentatives of the Michigan Com-
mittee on Civil Rights, Amer-
icans for Democratic Action, the
National Association for the Ad-
vancement of Colored People,
AFL, CIO and independent un-
ions.
They denounced the Regents'
decision to reorganize the Univer-
sity Workers' Education Program,
charging that pressure from Gen-
eral Motors Corp. forced the
change.
Dismissal of former director El-
der was also a result, they said, of
last May's attack on the Work-
ers' Educational Service by a Gen-
eral Motors employe who said two
lectures he attended were "Marx-
ist."
* * *
STATEMENTS at yesterday's
meeting called for:
1-Opening meetings of the
Board of Regents to the public and
the press.
2 -Publicizing the investiga-
tion on which the Board said it
based the reorganization of the
workers' education program.
3-Transferring workers' educa-
tion to the State Superintendent of
Public Instruction because the
University is "entirely unfit and
unable to carry on this important
rviee'=msssheown-bT the-3egenl,
action.

GOV. SIGLER said later that
his plane was "fogged in" at Mus-
kegon airport . . . That made me
entirely too late for the meeting."

Establishment of an area for
student discussion at the base of
the flag pole on the Mall was
announced yesterday by Dean of
Students Erich A. Walter.
Discussion will be limited to the
hours from noon to 4 p.m. Mon-
day through Friday on topics
"within the realm of good taste."
Students can participate as indi-
viduals only and no organized par-
tisan activity will be permitted.
* * *
THE DECISION to give students
an area for discussion was the
result of a Student Legislature
petition passed at last week's
meeting.
The plan was approved Tues-
day by the Student Affairs Com-
mittee and University authorities
gave their final okay yesterday.
The SL petition came after
Dean Walter had interpreted the
ban on political speakers as for-
bidding the discussions center-
ing around a Wallace Progres-
sive petition booth on the Diag
two weeks ago.
The SAC approved rules pro-
vide that the student body shall
have the responsibility of main-
taining order and "a true spirit of
impromptu debate."
NO OFFICIAL leader of the
discussions will be allowed under
the rules.
Any act of physical violence or
disorderly conduct or an attempt
by a student group to conduct an
organized political rally is deemed
by the rules as "against the best
interests of the student body."
Any such action will be sub-
ject to investigation and trial
by Men's or Women's Judiciary
Council, according to the plan.
The Student Legislature will ap-
point a committee of three to di-
rect cases of misconduct to the
Judiciary bodies.
Dean Walter said that the plan
would go into effect immediately.

Odria Leads
Revolt in Peru
LIMA, Peru----(P)-The Peruvian
government announced tonight
the army garrison at Arequipa had
revolted.

The announcement said the
armed revolutionists were headed
by Gen. Manuel Odria. No other
details of the rebellion, including
its progress, were disclosed.

Basements of fraternities and
sororities and dorm recreation
rooms are alive with activity this
week as amateur artisans rush to
complete homecoming displays be-
fore the 9 a.m. deadline Saturday.
Some 90 houses and dorms have
entered the contest to vie for the
trophies on display in the window
of a local bookstore.
Since men's displays must be
moving, the contest will probably
provide an outlet for the ideas of
some of the more imaginative en-
gineers.
BUT EVEN in the women's resi-
dences, you can see last minute
consultation of intricate plans,
many of which would put the most
advanced engineers to shame, and
hard working women toting
strange materials for use in the
wierd displays.
Starting this year, for the first
time in the history of the con-
test, trophies will become rotat-
ing, and permanent plaques
will be awarded winning houses.
Judges will start driving around
town to view the displays at 9 a.m.
Saturday morning, and the win-
ners will be announced between
halves of the game.
The West Quad will hold its
own homecoming display contest,
rewarding a cup to the winning
house.
LAST YEAR, Lloyd House in the
West Quad took first place in the
contest with a display featuring
"Men of Distinction." Alpha Xi

Bid for Votes
(By The Associated Press)
Communism was the subject of
presidential campaign oratory
last night-Truman said he hated
Communism - and Dewey said
Americans in high places are help-
ing the Communist propaganda
line.
President Truman was speaking
at Boston. He made a bid for the
Irish-Catholic vote by saying he
hated the godless creed of Com-
munism and promised a never sur-
render fight against it.
GOV. DEWEY spoke at Cleve-
land where he told 12,000 persons
gathered in the municipal audito-
rium that world peace cannot be
achieved by "jovially remarking we
like good old Joe Stalin."
The New York governor was
referring to the President's re-
mark in Oregon last spring,
when Truman said he likes "Old
Joe" but that Stalin could not
carry out his agreements be-
cause he was a "prisoner of the
Politburo."
Back in Boston Truman was tell-
ing a cheering Irish audience that
"we shall not retreat" from the
"frank and firm position that
Communism must not spread its
tentacles into the western zones
of Germanyl"
TRUMAN said the voters can
fight Communism "with a clear
cut vote to defeat Republican re-
action."
Meanwhile in Cleveland Dewer
continued his attack on the Dem-
ocrats by saying that "persons in
places of authority are voicing day
after day the world wide Com-
munist propaganda that America
is headed from boom to bust.
"They are ridiculing the old
fashioned idea of teamwork and
unity and are trying to divide
our people by appeals to fear
and prejudice," Dewey said.
At the same time back in Bostori
Truman was saying that his fight
is against a Republican appeal to
"The passions of prejudice and in-
tolerance."

Postal Station
A new branch postal station
which will alleviate congestion at
both the main office and the May-
nard St. branch will be opened
soon. according to Postmaster Os-
wald Koch.
The new office, to be located in
the E. University Ave.-S. Univer-
sity Ave. district, will provide
carrier service for residents in the
district east of State St. and south
of N. University.
In addition, the branch will sell
stamps and other postal items and
receive packages. Laundry case
lines will be shortened at the May-
nard Street office, as the new
branch will handle a large number
of these packages.
Although the exact location of
the station has not been deter-
mined, postal authorities will start
negotiating for rented quarters
shortly, Koch said.
He added that the station would
cut from 15 minutes to an hour in
delivery time of mail.

Buffer States
Menace Soviet
Says Barnes
Correspondent Cites
SatelliteUprisings
By JIM MARCHEWKA
Buffer states may boomerang
against the Soviet according to
Russell Barnes, foreign corre-
spondent who spoke last night at
the Rackham amphitheatre.
Having just returned to the
United States after covering the
Big Four Foreign Ministers meet-
ing in Moscow, Barnes declared
that uprisings have occurred in
Russian satellite countries since
the Tito government has been op-
erating effectively in secret.
IHE MAINTAINED that a work-
able Marshall Plan and .a success-
ful settlement of the Berlin crisis
may cause uprisings in Soviet buf-
fer states that will expel the Com-
munists in a few years.
Mr. Barnes added that Rus-
sian expansion has been car-
ried out according to the plans
of a communistic blueprint that
he saw several years ago in
Russia.
Russia wants a world system
based on Communism, Mr. Barnes
explained. He pointed out that
the Russians are using Berlin as a
lever in the United Nations to
force a new peace settlement that
would give the Soviet additional
reparations. The Russians also
want a new political setup in Ger-
many, he said.

War and internal revolution
