Slick Trick---Grady the Cow Free

YUKON, Okla.-(/P)-It took a
slick trick-but Grady the cow
was freed from her silo prison yes-
terday.
The white-faced Hereford -
whose ins and outs of the 40-foot
high silo. had North America
guessing-was liberated with cup
grease and the old heave-ho.
THE FIRST OF hundreds of
suggestions to rescue the bovine
damsel in distress' was used.
The scheme was devised by
Ralph Partridge, farm editor of
the Denver Post, who flew here
to Grady's assistance after word
was flashed over the nation.
It all started when Bill Mach's
$1,000 cow bolted into the silo
through a 17x25'/2 inch door. It
was unbelievable to see the 1400-

THE ARRESTS came amid a

the French Communist Party, and
!hat the Kremlin was using
French Communists, to help it
fight the proposed North Atlantic

An official source said yester-

started legal proceedings against
the French Communist Party'sE
Politburo on charges of incit-
ing the Army to revolt during
the French coal mine strike last

The original charges against
them are delivering secrets con-

ing defense secrets.

Revenue Up,
Profits Downs
Grid, Basketball
Operate in Blaek
By B. S. BROWN
(Daily Sports Editor)
Michigan athletic receipts hit!
an all-time high during 1947-48
but mounting operational costs!
brought total profits to a figure
below that of the previous year,!
according to a report submitted
to the Board of Regents yesterday
by Herbert O. Crisler, Chairman
of the Board of Intercollegiate
Athletics.
INCREASED disbursements al-
lowed for a profit of $265,775 as
compared to the $377,665 which
the wholly self-supporting athletic
department netted in the fiscal
year 1946-47.
As; usual, football was the
principal source of income,
accounting for $451,131.99 afterI
costs andvisiting teams' shares
were deducted.
Basketball was the only othert
activity to show a profit in thes
past year. Receipts in the cage
sport exceeded expenditures by
$2,02.38.f
THE REPORT stressed that the
income from football enabled the
physical education and athletic
program to operate without cost
to the Michigan taxpayers.
Though hockey showed a net
loss of over two thousand dol-
lars, a profit of $5,414.03 was
reaized by the skating rink
which is also used by pleasure
skaters. A new hockey arena or
a c'asbhed basketball-hockey
field hose is part of Crisler's
plans for athletic expansion of
University athletic facilities.
A foreshadowing of things to
come was indicated in a lengthy
discussion of student fees.{
EACII STUDENT pays a $7 ath-
letic fee which allows him entry
to all events in the stadium and1
at Ferry Field or the Yost Field
House. The fee, which is takenT
from student tuition, also provides
the privilege of using the varioust
indoor and outdoor athletic facili-
ties.
The Board of Intercollegiate
Athletics concluded this phase
of the report wth a strong re-
commendation that the fee be

Since yesterday morning the:

The Board of Regents has demonstrated an under-
standing of a great University's purpose.
The rescinding of the ten-month old political speak-
ers' ban has again united the Administration and student
body on one concept of education.
To the Regents must go credit for realizing the
sincerity and conviction of the body of students they
serve.
To the students and faculty-congratulations for
pushing their conviction, as individuals and as a group,
until the point was driven home.
The University Lecture Committee will administer
the liberal new regulations. It will need courage and
wisdom in carrying out its vital duties.

We join President Ruthven in the hope that "the
by-law will be administered and accepted in the spirit
in which the Regents acted."

Student Group
For Inter-Art
Activities Born
By JOHN DAVIES
An Inter-Arts Committee-whien
will coordinate activities of art
groups on campus-has been born,
First step in the committee's
agenda was to lay tentative
groundwork on a Festival of Cre-
ative Arts slated for May 13 to
15. The organization is applying
for Student Affairs Committee ap-
proval.
OFFICERS OF THE IAC are
Thomas Wilson, GradSM, chair-
man; James Kirkamo, '50A, vice-
chairman and Lora Angell, '50A,
secretary.
Groups represented were the
Music School, architecture
school, Modern Dance Club,
Ballet Club, Modern Poetry
Club, English Drama Group and
Play Production.
The festival will feature such
events as a recital of specially-
written music, several one-act
plays and dancing programs as
plans now stand.
Readings and discussion of mod-
ern poetry and an art exhibit are
also slated.
GROUP PANEL discussions will
precede and follow most of the
events.
While the festival will be open
to all, its primary purpose is to
acquaint members of the various
groups with what the other crea-
tive art organizations are doing,
Secretary Angell explained.

SL tentatively planned to hold the
meeting in the Masonic Temple.
The Regents also studied
plans for an extension of phys-
ical education facilities as pre-
sented by Herbert O. Crisler,
athletic director, and Prof.
Ralph W. Aigler. They instruct-
ed the officers to go over these
plans in detail with the Board
in Control of Intercollegiate
Athletics.
The Regents named Lewis V.
Thomas an assistant professor of
history, and Paul Hunsicker was
appointed as an associate super-
visor of physical education in the
Department of Physical Education
for Men and as an assistant pro-
fessor of physical education in the
School of Education. Both of
these appointments are effective
for the 1949-50 year.
FRANK WISE was appointed an
assistant professor of architec-
ture; Lawrence E. Vredevoc, asso-
ciate professor of secondary edu-
cation.
Paul M. Spurlin was named
as acting chairman and Herbert
A. Kenyon as acting associate
chairman of the Department of
Romance Languages for the
current semester.
In the Engineering Research In-
stitute, Russell D. O'Neal and Eu-
gene K. Ritter were named as re-
search engineers for work to be
clone at the Aeronautical Research
Center at Willow Run Airport.
IN ADDITION six' appointments
to the Board of Governors of Res-
idence Halls, the Executive Com-
mittee of the Extension Service
and the Board of Governors of the
Lawyers Club were approved.
The Regents also granted two
leaves of absence. The leave of
Professor Walter Colby of the
Physics Department was extend-
ed to cover the second semester
so that he may continue to work
with the Atomic Energy Com-
mission in Washington.
Prof. Alan S. Foust, of the De-
partment of Chemical-Metallurg-
ical' Engineering was granted a
leave until Feb. 1, 1950 to become
a coordinator of basic research on
the Project Wizard of the Uni-
versity's Research Institute.
The Regents also announced
the acceptance of gifts totaling
$86,886.29.

On Lectures
Gets Control
Students, Faculty
ApplaudAction
By DICK MALOY
(Daly City Editor)
The controversial "speakers
ban" was removed yesterday by
the University Board of Regents.
The "ban" has prohibited po-
litical speeches at open meetings
on the University campus. It was
imposed last April in a Univer-
sity by-law.
REGENTS killed the by-law
and gave the University Lecture
Committee full power to pass on
the merits of any person wishing
to speak on the campus. The lec-
ture committee is headed by Prof.
Carl Brandt.
Yesterday's announcement
was greeted by a chorus of ap-
pr'oval from student leaders and
University officials. The move
climaxed a 10-month battle on
the part of students and faculty
members to have the ban re-
laxed.
Yesterday's relaxation followed
the appearance of committees
from the Student Legislature and
the Faculty Senate before the
Regents last month. The Senate
group presented.arguments against
the ruling.
THE LEGISLATORS argued
against the ban and presented an
alternative proposal asking that
the lecture committee be given ,
power to pass on all speker t
It was this alternative pro-
posal which the Regents accept-
ed yesterday.
In relaxing the ban the Re-
Icnts said:
"THESE REGULATIONS shall
be administered by the Commit-
tee on University Lectures with
the understanding that they are
designed to serve the educational
interests of the academic com-
munity rather than the political
interests of one party or candi-
date."
In passing on the merits of
persons wishing to speak here
the lecture conunittee will hve
to work within the framework
of this qualification.
President Alexander Ruthven
called the move a wise one which
will be administered and
accepted in the spirit in which
the Regents have acted."
"It shows the Board's confidence
in the lecture committee and in
the good Judgment of the stu-
dents," Ruthven added.
PASSED LAST APRIL, the orig-
inal ban on political speeches
here touched off a storm of crit-
icism. Several alternative pro-
posals were presented to the Re-
gents prior to last month's move
by the SL and the Faculty Sen-
ate.
Political interest ran high on
the campus during the life of
the ban because of the recent
presidential campaign. At one
time spontaneous gatherings for
political discussion took place
on the diagonal.
These were later forbidden by
Dean Erich Walter in an inter-
pretation of the "ban."
Politicians were permitted to
speak before closed meetings of
student political clubs under terms
of the old regulations.
