REVIVE SCHOOL SPIRIT:
New Committee Plans Fall Pep Rallies
Sparking a revived school spirit.
three pep rallies featuring na-
tionally-known speakershand spe-
cial dances afterwards have been
slated for next fall by a newly-
formed All-Campus Pep Rally
The committee, composed of
representatives of the Wolverine
Club, Union, League, IFC, AIM.
Panhel and Assembly, has planned
super rallies for the Army, Minne-
sota and Ohio State games.

AN INFORMAL street dance
has been drawn up to follow the
Army game rally on October 7.
The double street in front of the
League has been tentatively slated
as the site of the affair.

"Giving birth to a new enlight-
enment, a conversion of ashes into
life and beauty."
With these words from the Uni-
versity War Memorial Committee's
resolution to the Board of Regents,
the Phoenix Project was launched
on May 17, 1948.
* * *
PLANS FOR the entire scope of
the Project will be revealed for the
first time Tuesday in a public
meeting in Rackham Lecture Hall.
Designed to be a "living, time-
less, creative force for peace,"
the Project is to be devoted to
exploiting the peaceful and hu-
manitarian applications of
The concept of a functional War
Memorial originated on Dec. 18,
1946, when the Student Legislature
went on record as approving such
a set-up and laid tentative plans
for a fund-raising campaign.
OFFICIAL sanction came when
the Board of Regents named a
faculty-student War Memorial
Committee in September, 1947.
The idea for an atomic re-
search center first caught fire
in the mind of Fred J. Smith,
prominent New York publisher
and one-time University student.
He suggested a vast project de-
signed to make atomic energy
the slave rather than the mas-
ter of mankind, as a fitting trib-
ute to the University's war dead.
Smith's plans after rejecting
scores of other proposals as un-
suitable, the committee immedi-
ately sent to work cracking the
shroud of security which sur-
rounded all matters dealing with
atomic energy in America.

rallies will begin at the dorms,
fraternities and sororities.
There, to the martial music of
fraternity bands, spirited students
will tramp to the Union and form
a victory- hungry mob. From there
it will march to South Ferry Field.
HELPING THE fraternity bands
will be half of the University
Marching Band, which will play at
There will be talks by nation-
ally-known speakers as well as
local heroes, Hertzberg said. The
committee is hoping to have
sports announcer Bill Stern
spark one rally.
Carloads of football-sh aped
maize and blue pins bearing some
sort of victory-for-Michigan mes-
sage will add color to the affair,
Plan To Elect
LANSING - (lP)-A long advo-
cated proposal to make the state
superintendent of public instruc-
tion an appointive instead of an
elective official was defeated in
the Senate yesterday.
A proposed constitutional
amendment, drafted by the cit-
izens education study commission,
was defeated 17 to 14. Such a
measure requires a two thirds
THE LEGISLATION would have
increased the state board of edu-
cation from three to six members,
keep them as elective officials and
allow them to appoint the state
Senator James T. Milliken
(rep., Traverse City) failed in
his attempt to override the com-
mittee amendments which would
have retained the elective status
of the board.
Senator Harry F. Hittle (Rep.,
East Lansing) charged that an
appointive board of education
would create a system where the
superintendent of public instruc-
tion would function purely at the
will of educators.
Erich Walter, Dean Ralph Sawyer
and Dr. Fred Hodges appeared be-
fore the Atomic Energy Commis-
sion in Washington, D.C. to ex-
plain the proposed peacetime
atomic research center.
They emerged from the his-
toric meeting with the solid
backing 'of the Commission
which applauded the move.
After receiving the endorsement
of the Office of Naval Research,
the Project was taken to the Uni-
versity Board of Regents where it
received approval on May 1, 1948.
