NSA Congress Plans New Projects
Babson Qualifies Charge
Of Communist Control
(EfITOR'S NOTE: This is the first
of a series of four interpretive ar-
ticles on the National Student Asso-
ciation's first annual congress which
was held from Aug. b-28, at Mad-
ison, Wis. The series was prepared
by the University NSA committee.)
The first congress of the Na-
tional Student Association, held at
the University of Wisconsin late
in the summer, laid the ground-
work for concrete projects which
will be put into effect this year
on campuses all over the country.
The congress was attended by
over 700 students who represented
almost three-quarters of a million
The harmonious discussions of
projects on a local, national, and
international level contrasted with
last year's constitutional -conven-
tion of NSA, which was devoted
to organizational politics, and
where conflicts were frequent.
THE UNIVERSITY was repre-
sented by 13 students who were
chosen last spring by the Student
Legislature Cabinet. They were:
Harvey Weisberg, Tom Walsh,
Dick Hooker, Blair Moody, Arlynn
Rosen, Gellert Seel, Norris Do-
mangue, Marvin Failler, Roma
Lipsky, Don Calhoun, Eliot Char-
lip, Lucille Weisberg, and Dorianne
Harvey Weisberg was nomi-
nated for a national vice-presi-
dency, but declined in order to
dents from the University were in
Europe this summer under pro-
grams arranged by NSA.
The NSA committee on cam-
pus is already looking for volun-
teers to conduct a survey of stu-
dent cooperatives which will be
published for national distribu-
tion. Plans are also being for-
mulated for a series of radio pro-
grams about NSA which will be
broadcast over the new Univer-
As part of NSA's foreign student
hospitality program, a meeting
will be held to explain the fine-
points of football to new foreign
students. This meeting will take
place before the first game.
A STUDENT ART exhibit con-
sisting of 100 paintings from
schools throughout the country
was displayed at the congress. The
paintings are now being exhibited
all over the country, and will be
on display in Ann Arbor later in
Under the direction of its chair-
man, Tom Walsh, the Michigan
delegation prepared a booklet
which was distributed at the Con-
gress. Entitled "For Your Infor-
mation," this brochure included a
description of the Student Experts
orientation program, a report on
our football seating and ticket dis-
tribution, and a student wage sur-
vey of Ann Arbor.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: The following
statement of apology was submitted
by Ed Tumin who was responsible
for giving The Daily erroneous in-
formation in connection with the
AVC story in yesterday's paper.)
A serious injustice has been
done to the name of Brooklyn
College and its graduates and for-
mer students by a stupid and in-
advertent thoughtlessnessy on my
part. Acting on a faulty impres-
sion, I supplied the information
to Mr. Babson that the majority
of transferees recorded at the AVC
meeting in question were from
Brooklyn College and that these
alleged transferees were instru-
mental in aiding the' Communists

I wish to state that none of the
new transferees were from Brook-
I wish to apologize in the name
of AVC's executive board for the
serious damage dealt to the repu-
tation of Brooklyn and its stu-
dents. My original faulty state-
ment was not meant for publica-
tion and should never have been
made at all.
Further, this is to add that Ar-
thur Moskoff, a former Brooklyn
student present at the meeting

chairman of the Michigan Re-
gion. There are, at present, 13
schools in the State of Michigan
affiliated with NSA.

the NSA committee of the Stu-
dent Legislature, was elected sec-
retary of the Michigan region.

FOR HALF of the congress the
delegates were divided into 11
workshops to discuss plans which
NSA hopes to institute this year.
Most striking of these were the
Purchase Card system for securing
lower prices for students at local
stores, and the student exchange
and travel abroad programs ar-
ranged by NSA. At least 25 stu-

resolution, presented by Ed Shaffer
at the AVC meeting Sept. 22, was the
issue which brought the dissension

The University of Michigan
chapter of the American Veterans
Committee condemns vigorously
the expulsion on Sept. 19 by the
National Planning Committee of
John Gates, editor of the Daily
Worker and a member of the
Communist Party. This expulsion
is dictatorial, undemocratic, and
contrary to the principles upon
which AVC was founded.
The U of M chapter believesj
that the AVC, instead of joining
and aiding un-Americans in their
witch-hunts, should take a lead-
ing part in fighting for and de-
fending the civil liberties of the
American people. By succumbing
to the present day anti-Red hys-
teria the AVC is helping pave the
road to fascism, the very same fas-
cism which Americans of all po-
litical faiths, including the Com-
munists, fought in the recent war.
By expelling John Gates for his
membership in the Communist
Party the AVC has lost the right
to call itself a liberal organiza-
tion. It has allied itself with the
most reactionary elements in our
The U of M chapter knows very
well why the NPC has expelled
John Gates, a member of AVC for
over a year, at this particular
time. This expulsion is an at-
tempt to divert the attention of
the membership from the failures
of the present administration by
raising at the time of election of
delegates to the national conven-
tion the false issue of the Bol-
Strauss Residents Jitter
As Furniture Rumbles
Strauss House, in the new East Quad, has a minor mystery on its
It's not that mysteries are anything new in Strauss House because
last semester, bats suddenly appeared on the fourth floor throwing
everyone into a flurry of excitement and then, just as suddenly,
* * * *
THIS SEMESTER it's the case of "The Moving Furniture" and,
so far, no one has come close to solving it.
It all started last Tuesday around midnight when a few
sleepy-eyed residents of the third floor marched up to the fourth
floor and angrily demanded that the fourth floorers stop moving
furniture around. The mystified boys from upstairs proclaimed
their innocence so vehemently that peace was maintained for that
But the next night, the scene was repeated, and the men on
floor four began to smile significantly at each other while rotating
their forefingers close to their heads.
STILL THE THIRD floor men insisted that they were not hearing
things which didn't exist. Reynold Burrows, Grad., a staff assistant,
complained that the noise sounded like a "circus train being unloaded."
Another aroused Strauss resident suggested that an interior
decorating major on the fourth floor was doing his homework late
However, an investigation by Joseph L. Smith, '49BAd., assistant
resident advisor, and Philip Bocquet, Grad., a fourth floor staff
assistant, proved conclusively that no one in Strauss House has been
moving furniture lately.
There the matter stands today.
John Davies, '50E, who is known around Strauss House for his
keen, analytical mind, summed up the situation by saying, "The only
possible solution is that the house is haunted. No other dormitory
can make this statement."
Toledo Freshmen Get Early

That old line about always being able to tell a frosh from his up-
perclass brothers doesn't hold true in the case of 25 freshmen from To-
Under the guidance of the Toledo Club, organized on campus last
semester, this group of freshman has become wise to the ways of the
University very rapidly, according to Bill Zerman, founder of the club.
This was accomplished by a personalized orientation program carried
out by the organization.
* * *
THE CLUB, composed of 80 University students who call Toledo
home, started its own freshman orientation program by holding a
picnic in the middle of August attended by the 25 prospective fresh-
men and the entire membership of the club.
During orientation week, the newcomers were met by mem-j
bers of the club and given the lowdown on campus activities,
including publications, the League, Union, WAA, and athletics.
The club also explained advisor's functions, requirements for
course concentration and the general geography of Ann Arbor.

Wheeler Elected Head
Of Geology Fraternity
Walter H. Wheeler, Grad., was
elected President of the Iota Chap-
ter of Sigma Gamma Epsilon, na-
tional honorary geology frater-
Other officers elected include
Robert I. Davis as Vice-President,
Joe H. Kerr as Secretary-Treas-
urer, and Russell A. Brant as Cor-
shevik-bogey. The administration
is trying to hide the fact that in
the past year the NPC took no
action against the draft, against
UMT, against discrimination in
thel armed forces, and for the
preservation of civil liberties. The
administration is trying to con-
ceal the fact that as a result of
its inaction on vital issues mem-
bership has fallen from 45,000 as
of July 1, 1947 to 27,343 as of June
1, 1948, a drop of 40%.
The U of M chapter rejects this
attempt on the part of the NPC
to use the old Hitlerian technique
of red-baiting to cover up for its
deficiencies. The U of M chap-
ter demands that the NPC not
only re-instate immediately John
Gates but also vigorously defend
the right of Communists, as well
as members of other political or-
ganizations, to participate in
AVC; that the NPC immediately
take action on the vital issues of
the draft, housing, UMT, inflation,
discrimination, and peace; and
that the NPC take a leading role
in the fight for civil liberties by
helping defend the 12 indicted
