Control Ball Beat
For five minutes last night,
Michigan's cagers played "cat-
and-mouse" with Wisconsin at
Yost Field House, and eked out
a 40-33 verdict over the Badgers.
The win strengthens the Maize
and Blue's hold on third place and
keeps the quintet in the running
for the Big Nine title.
WITH THREE quarters of the
game gone and the visitors closing

margin, the Maize and Blue called.

the freeze on the bail.
From the time they started
until the end of the game, coach
Ernie McCoy's boys took and
missed a total of three shots,
but Wisconsin was held to a
similar number of tries in the
same period plus a two-point
tip-in by center Don Rehfeldt
with 15 seconds left to go.
During this time Michigan also
forced eight personal fouls out of
the Badgers, which saw two visi-
tors go out of the game on misde-

THEY WERE gaurd Doug Rog-

On seven fouls Michigan ele-
ed to take the ball out of bounds
instead of taking the shot, but
the block on Elliott was worth a
pair of charity throws, so Pete
took the bfrst and made it before
taking the ball out of bonds.
Harold "Bud" Foster, the Badg-
er mentor, admitted after the
game that Michigan guards Elliott
and Bob Harrison had put on an
excellent display of stalling, but
criticized the Wolverines continu-
ally holding onto the ball.
REPEATING what he said fol-
lowing the Badgers' 47-33 loss to
Minnesota, Foster complained
that the "possession type" of bas-'

Spring rollment Sets II


The University has cancelled its
newly - organized program in
workers' education-but this an-
nouncement came as "no great
surprise" to labor leaders.
In a three-sentence statement,
President Alexander G. Ruthven
indicated organized labor's boy-

Truman, Hoover
Seeni as VictorsI
House voted tonight to give
President Truman broad perma-
nent powers to reorganize the ap-
proximately 1,800 government
agencies as he chooses, subject to
Congressional veto.
House action was by 356-9 roll-
call. The bill now goes to the Sen-
THlE PASSAGE of the first mia-
jor item in Mr. Truman's legisla-
tive program was a victory not
only for him but for former Presi-
dent Herbert Hoover. Hlover,
head of a commwission studying
government reorganization, hias
strongly supported the bill. lie
said today a $3,000,000,000 saving
might result from a thorough
overhaul of the government.
Administration leaders fought
off a barrage of amnenden s
to the proposal, most of them
offered by Republicans.
Most of them were designed to
give preferred treatment to i~di-
vidual agencies or to revise the re-
organization procedure whlic h
would be set up.
HOOVER, at a news conference,'
had warned against exempting
any agencies He said "Propagan-
dists" are behind such moves and
that if they arersuccessful, the en-
tire reorganization effort would
be destroyed.
Thessize of the final vote for
the bill poted up general bi-
partisan support of its general
objectives of economy and ef-
ficiency in the huge executive
branch of the government
Under it, Mr. Truman or any
.nLicceing president could send
gover nmental 1'eoirgiagniz a ioi
plans to Congress. and they would
become effective unless bothuSen-
ate and louse dgfapproved the-n
within 60 days.
PrOF. JAMES K . Pollock ,
chairman of the University's po-
litical science department, and a
member of the Hoover Commis-
sion, called the ouse action
~very gratifying."
"If the Sente acts as prompt
ly, the President will be able to
immediately get to work on our
recomendations.w ongfressonal
interest in the re-orgaization
proposals is most emcouraging,"
he said.

Used texts may be bought and

bold this week at the IFC-spon-
,ored student book exchange in

'The exchange will be open from
1 to 5 p.m. each day,
Those selling texts will set their
own price, a spokesman explained,
and fill out a form when they
leave the book. Checks will be

books may be picked up next week,
The exchange will be run on

Labor leaders have previously
said the University did not ade-
quately consult with them or
with the workers' education ad-
visory committee before setting
up the new program.
They have charged that Gen-
eral Motors employe Adam K.
Stricker's claim that the former
program was "Marxist" led the
Board of Regents to fire Arthur A.
Elder, former director of the pro-
gram, and revamp the courses.
AFTER A NUMBER of meetings
with the workers' education ad-
visory committee consisting of
University, labor and public rep-
resentatives, Extension Service
Director Everett J. Soop an-
nounced that seven courses would
begin the week of Feb. 1.
Labor immediately announced
its boycott, saying final agree-
ment had not been reached in
the committee meetings.
Three classes were held. No one
came to the first, one student ap-
peared to register for the second,
and none attended the third.

IN ANNOUNCING dicontinu-
ance of the classes, President
Ruthven said: "We regret that
the response of the workers for
whom the program was designed
has not matched the efforts which
the University has made to serve
their needs.",
Hopkins said this "comes as
no great surprise to labor, . . We
will, however, carry o i our own
service now in effect . . . with-
out the assistance of the Uni-
But, he said, "if there are other
state institutions that we can
work with, we'll do it."

Vet Registration
Early tabulations of the Uni-
versity's spring enrollment show
that 19,829 students have regis-
tered for classes, setting a new
record for the spring semester.
Although this figure is lower
than the fall enrollment, it slight-
ly exceeds University expecta-
tions for the spring semester.
Registrar Ira M. Smith said that'
he anticipates that the final en-
rollment will pass the 20,00 mark.
FOLJOWING a substantial
graduation of veterans last se-
mester, officials reported a signif-
icant decrease of 6.3 per cent in
the number of veterans enrolled
compared with last fall's record.
An even greater decrease in the
percentage of veterans is antici-
pated next fall.
A breakdown of the enroll-
ment figures show that 15,012
men and 4,817 won have reg-
istered. 862 students less tbami
last semester's total of 20,691.
Although veterans still out-
number non-veterans by 195,
there are still 673 less veterans
than last semester.
The literary college reported the
largest enrollment of 6,726 stu-
dents, followed by the Graduate
School with 3,943 and the engi-
neering college with 3,509. These
figures do not include approxi-
mately 10,000 students through-
out the state taking credit and
non-credit courses in the Exten-
sion Service.

ly than usual, according to As-
sistant Registrar, Edward G.
Groesbeck. "The cooperation of
most students in arriving at their
appointed times enabled us to
maintain lines of usually less than
20 students," he said.
To protect waiting students
fron the cold winds outside of
Waterman Gym, the lines were
routed through the weight-lift-
ing room in the basement for
the first time this semester.
Although several departments
reported slightly decreased en-
rollments, Professor Lewis G. Van-

New Hall To
Oen in 1950
Residence Will
House 1,150 Men
The University will have a new
eight-story men's residence hall
Wy the fall of 1950 if present plans
go smoothly.
The plans for the structure,
which would house 1150 men stu-
dents, are still in the tentative
stage, however, according to Uni-
versity Vice-President Robert P.
THE PROPOSED dormitory
would be situated Just south of
the Union and the West Quad-
rangle, in the block bounded by
State, Madison, Thompson, and
Monroe streets.
Fraternity houses on State
Street and the corner of
Thompson and Madison streets
would not be disturbed. All the
other properties in the biogk
would have to be acquired, how-
ever, to make room for the new
building, Briggs said,
The University already owns
some of the properties in the
ALSO, AS PART of the tentaw
tive program, the triangular piece
of land bounded by Madison,
Thompson and Packard streets,
may be purchased for recreatior-
al purposes. At present there is
only one private residence on .hi
Although the planning has
progressed sufficiently so that
the Universlty has requested
property owners in the block
to permit appraisers to examine
their properties, three main
hurdles are yet to be cleared
Briggs emphasized.
He pointed out that the ulti-
mate success of the program de-
pends upon the University's abil-
ity to:
1-Acquire the property at rea-
sonable prices.
2-Obtain financing for the
building, and,
3-Arrange a satisfactory con-
structiori contract.
* * *
A NEW MEN'S dormL ,ry is
long overdue, Briggs pointed out.
"Since the war, our enrollment
has increased by more than
8,000," he declared: "In the same
period the only men's dormitory
to be constructed is the addition
to the East Quadrangle," he point-
ed out.
At present about 150 students
live in the block on which the
building would be erected. These
students would not be required
to move this semester since con-
struction would not be started
before the end of the college
The present inhabitants of the
housing in the block generally
agreed that they would regret
moving but that a new dormtory
seemed to be a necessity.

mother, who lives in a Monroe St.
apartment, agreed that students
should have clean and comfort-
able places to live, but thought
that it was too bad that good
living quarters should have to be
torn down to make room for the
new dormitory.
Teh Fu Yu, '49 BAd., express-
ed concern for the future hous-
ing of foreign students.
One of the fraternity men whose
house would be spared said,
"We've put up with the West

Quadrangle thus far, and I guess
we can stand another dormitory,"
as he glanced at a snowball-bro-
ken window. "I graduate in June,"
he added.
