Ortmann Named
On Second Team
Dick Rifenburg and Al Wistert
have been named to All-American
posts by the United Press and Rif-
enburg was selected by the Asso-
ciated Press in its annual poll
which determines the "dream
team" of the year.
OF THE 11 players chosen by
the United Press, five came from
three of the four unbeaten and
untied major teams, with Michi-
gan and Notre Dame, the power-
houses of the Midwest, leading the
way with two representatives.
Notre Dame's All-Stars are
end Leon Hart and guard Wil-
liam Fischer. Leo Nomellini,
Minnesota's husky tackle, was
the fifth midwestern player
player named,
Fischer, Doak Walker, SMU, and
Charles Bednarik, who landed
guard, back and center positions
respectively, are all repeaters from
the 1947 UP All-American team.

Three midwesteru players
were named on the UP second
team-center Alex Sarkisian of
Northwestern; tackle Philip
O'Reilly of Purdue; and back

last year's team, however. Bill
Fischer, Notre Dame, holds down
one of the tackle positions; Chuck
Bednarik is at center once again;
and Doak Walker, the pride of the
Mustangs, is in the backfield.
Virtually all the several hun-

tors and broadcasters who
joined in nominating the team
agreed on five men-Rifenburg,
Buddy Burris, guard from Okla-
homa, Tar Heel halfback Char-
lie Justice, Fischer and Walker.
The remainder of the first team
positions were filled by Barney
Poole, Mississippi end, Leo Nomel-
lini, Minnesota tackle, Rod Franz,
California guard, Bobby Jack Stu-
art, Army back, and Art Mura-
kowski, Northwestern fullback.
MICHIGAN, Notre Dame and
California are the only teams tc

A ids Hospital Workshop
Did you ever see the look of joy in a sick child's eyes when he's
given a toy to play with .. . a toy that proves that people are still
thinking of him, even though he's in the hospital?
That look is an everyday occurrence at the Galen's Children's
Workshop in University Hospital. There hospitalized youngsters
are provided with not only toys, but books, records, games and arts
and crafts projects to pass long hours of confinement.

states threw all their resources
into the hunt for members of

which struck and disappeared
shortly after dawn.
Gov. Sigler, other state officials
and Kalamazoo police chief How-
ard Hoyt blamed "union goons"
for the sudden, forceful assault.
Sigler demanded a one-man grand

Arrangements were rushed so that
such a jury could start its inquiry
THERE WAS no direct com-
ment from the CIO United Steel
Workers, who have been on strike
at the two plants of the Shakes-
peare companies since Sept. 7 in a
demand for contract changes.
However, Glenn E. Sigman,
the union's international repre-
sentative directing the strike,
accused the company of "m-
porting outside strikebreakers."
He declined comment on con-
missioner Leonard's statements.
He did not indicate, however,
whether the raid was in retalia-
tion for the alleged strike-break-
ing maneuver.

'U' Asks for Huge
Expansion Funds
Asks State for $8 Million Outlay
To Construct Four New Buildings
Another vast expansion program will get underway at the Univer-
sity next year if a request for necessary funds is approved by the State
The University has asked the state for more than eight million
dollars to begin construction of four new buildings. And another half
million dollars has been requested to cover costs of drawing up plans
for an additional three buildings.
THE EXPANSION PROGRAM was revealed in the University's
annual budget request submitted to state officials yesterday. The en-
tire request also included an amount of $12,500,000 for normal opera-
tion expenses.
This operating expense is nearly three million dollars greater
than the money spent this year for operations. The increase has
been laid to continued soaring costs and high enrollment.
The proposed new buildings are part of the long range post-war
expansion program first submitted to the legislature in 1946.
* * * *
AT THAT TIME funds were allowed for construction of the Ad-
ministration, Chemistry, Engineering, Business Administration, Food
Service and Dormitory buildings.
With these units virtually completed, the University now has
asked for funds to start construction of an addition to Literary
College classrooms, an addition to the General Library, an addi-'
tion to the heating plant and a new motor vehicle service building.
The new L. S. and A. classrooms would be in the form of an addi-
tion to Angell Hall. Tentative plans call for the razing of old Univer-
sity Hall and its wings to make room for the Angell Hall 'addition
which-is slated to cost $3,750,000.
THE LIBRARY ADDITION, to be built at a cost of $3,500,000,
would be located in the rear of the present structure. The old Physics
building would be pulled down to make room for the library addi-

announced as winner of the class

"The thing I like most about
the Senior Class election results,"
he later told reporters, "is that
they do not follow any set fra-
ternity or independent lines."
"I believe that when affiliated
and non-affiliated students cease
voting in blocks against each
other the student body will get
better qualified and more force-

Religion To Be
Subject of
SRA Will Discuss
Plan for 'U' Courses
Weighing the problem of the
University and religion, a profes-
sional religious man and a fac-
ulty member will give their views!
in a debate sponsored by the Stu-
dent Religious Association at 7:30
p.m. today at Lane Hall.
Prof. Frank 'untley, of the
English department, will present
a plan for courses in religion
drawn up by a faculty committee
and Dr. Franklin Littell, Lane
Hall director, will present his own
The increased attention other
universities were giving to the
problem helped bring about the
appointment of a faculty commit-
tee to consider religious courses,
here, Prof. Huntley said.
"The committee report recom-
mends an increase of courses
about religion rather than the es-
tablishment of a separate depart-
ment," said Prof. Huntley.
Other plans provide for a de-
partment of religion, possibly
similar to the one at Yale. Stu-
dents graduating from this de-
partment could become profes-
sional religious leaders.

Articles such as plastic jewelry,
pottery, woven goods, wooden toys
and finger paintings are made

MATERIALS such as packing
boxes and cloth scraps, ordinarily
considered waste, are also used so
that when children return home
they can utilize any type of ma-
terial at hand.
Emphasis is on instructing
children in new skills and help-
ing them improve the ones they
have. One boy, now 13, has
been in and out of the hospital
for five years. During that time
he developed an interest in the
tropical fish tank in the Work-
Encouraged by the teacher, he

skills normal children her age
were mastering, and upon her dis-
charge was able to take her place
in the third grade.

U.S. Doctors
Sufficient for
Equal Distribution
Is Key-_Furstenberg
IAmerica has enough doctors to
fill its-needs if medical services are
distributed properly, Dean Albert
C. Furstenberg of the University's
Medical School told the second
annual Conference on Higher Edu-
cation here yesterday.
The United States has one doc-
tor for every 800 persons. And
that is the highest ratio in the
world, he declared.

THE NUMBER of doctors would
be adequate if there was not a
tendency for medical services to be
concentrated in the more populous
cities of the wealthier states, he
Discussing medical education,
Dean Furstenberg said that
there was no need for new medi-
cal schools now because the es-
tablished institutions are ex-
panding to meet increased de-
mands for medical education.
Both he and Dr. Gordon A. Scott
of the Wayne University Medical
School declared that medical
schools are not interested merely
in applicants with advanced sci-
ence study.
APPLICANTS who have con-
centrated in social sciences and
the humanities after finishing
their basic science requirements
are also desirable, they said.
At the final session of the two-
day conference, Lee M. Thurston,
Michigan superintendent of pub-
lic instruction, called for the es-
tablishment of great numbers of
new community colleges.

About a million dollars will be
needed to construct the pro-
posed heating plant addition and
the "motor pool."
Money was also requested to
draw plans and lay groundwork
for a new School of Music, Medi-
cal building and a fire station.
IN LAYING the budget before
state officials, resident Alexander
G. Ruthven told them the Uni-
versity expects continued increases
in enrollment.
President Ruthven declared
the new units were needed

gan is to maintain its high
standards of instruction and re-
search which so long have been
its distinctive feature."
