Bird Baths . .
To the Editor:
TN VIEW OF the various philan-
thropic activities on the cam-
pus recently, we have seen and
read about the generosity of Mich-
igan students. However, strange as
it may seem, a large portion of
the campus population has long
been neglected. We are referring
to our feathered friends, the birds.
Robins, sparrows and other species
abount in the area of the Diag.
They make our life more enjoy-
able here. Yet, despite the Uni-
versity's generosity, the poor
things have no place to bathe. We
want to go on record for urging

sentative Richard Nixon have introduced
a new "tougher" bill to curtail Communist
activities in this country.
The Bill condemns the Communist
Party as a conspiratorial group working to
subject this country to totalitarianism un-
der control of a foreign nation. It provides
drastic penalties for this offense.
The heart of the bill lies in its regis-
tration provisions. It recognizes two types of
"subversive" organizations: "Communist
political organizations" and "Communist
front organizations." Both are required by
the bill to register as such with the Attorney
Registration includes the names of all
members. These members may not hold non-
elective federal office, may not conceal their
membership when seeking or accepting any
federal office, and may not apply for or
use passports.
Eight factors are listed as criteria to be
considered to determine whether a group
is a Communist political organization.
These are: "The extent to which its pol-
icies are formulated and its activities per-
formed pursuant to directives or to effec-
tuate the policies of the foreign government
or foreign organization which controls the
world Communist movement.
2. "The extent to which its views and pol-
icies do not deviate from those of such for-
eign governments or organizations.
3. "The extent to which it fails to disclose,
or resists efforts to obtain"'information as
to its membership or other records, its mem-
bers refuse to acknowledge their member-
ship, its meetings are secret, and it otherwise
operates on a secret basis."
4. "The extentto which its principal lead-
ers or a substantial number of its members
consider the allegiance they owe to the Unit-
ed States as subordinate to their obligations
to such foreign government or foreign or-
The criteria for deciding whether an
organization is a Communist front organ-
ization are:
1. "The identity and associations of ac-
tive members;"
2. "The sources from which an important
part of its support, financial or otherwise is

the establishment of a bird bath
We write in all seriousness, al-
though we are not ornithologists.
There are only two sources of
water on the campus .proper, one
at the far end of the Diag and
the other at the approach to the
Ec building. These are drinking
fountains for the students. The
birds use these, but they provide
very poor bathing facilities since
they are too small. In passing, we
might point out that this also puts
students in danger of contamina-
tion, especially with manure
strewn on the ground. .Still, we
don't want to drive them away as
we surely will if they are not prop-
erly taken care of. Let's have
some bird baths.
We feel that bird baths, if mod-
ernistically designed, will beautify
the campus. They would be espe-
cially attractive if they correspond
to the new Administration build-
ing. If the University thought that
their maintenance and care was
too expensive, we would gladly
delegate the duty to our pledges.
Any more ideas for the raising of
funds will be gratefully received
by us from any Daily readers.
We've all for it! What about you?

Holland Debate .. .
To the Editor:
LAST WEEK Bob Holland shut
his eyes, stuck out his chin,
and in a farewell speech let fly
with a series of wild emotional
condemnations of several campus
organizations which sounded for
all the world like the propaganda
releases of a Detroit club which is
famed for its extreme attitudes on
education and student activities.
Assuming that Bob must have a
wealth of facts to substantiate his
allegations, I invited the gentle-
man to a public debate of the
issues which he raised.
But Mr. Holland chose to reute
that presumption in his favor by
refusing to substantiate his atti-
tudes in public, because, as he put
it, "I don't have time to do the
necessary research and finals are
coming up."
Thus Mr. Holland has adopted
the ill-reputed tactic employed by
certain newspapers and radio
commentators, of making un-
founded condemnatory attacks
which he admits he is unable or
unwilling to support in public.
If we can agree that a full and
free public discussion of contro-
versial issues is a basic principle
of the American Way of Life, I
would then ask Mr. Holland who
here is in his words, "gnawing at
the American Way of Life?"
It would seem that Bob's adop-
tion of this irresponsible attitude
reflects adversely upon our edu-
cation process here which is sup-
posed to produce mature indivi-
duals and responsible citizens.
I suggest that Mr. Holland owes
the University community, as well
as the organizations concerned, a
public apology.
--Tom Walsh.

SEEMS THERE'S AN awful lot of territory
south of St. Louis and every dusty inch
of it is infested withU nion soldiers, Johnny
Rebs and raiders who might have made life
mighty exciting for the settlers, but succeed
only in making it mighty dull for a movie
The plot, if such it may be called, con-
cerns three bosom pals, loyal southerners
whose ranch is burned out by raiders during
the Civil War. So what do they do? They
go after the raiders, of course. In the en-
suing action, the three comrades, who wear
bells on their spurs to symbolize their un-
dying loyalty to one another, end up stealing
each other's girls, shooting at one another,
and finally splitting up for good.
All of which goes to prove that you can't
trust your friends. That is unless your friend
happens to be Joel McCrea (is that bad?)
He's the only one who remains true to the
triumvirate, and in the end proves that
there's nothing like a good friend unless it's
a bad woman turned good.
Which brings us around to Alexis Smith.
She is obviously a Bad Woman, from the
top of her spurious red head to the tip
of her shiny black shoes. As in all small
towns in period pictures there are only
two things for a woman to do-nurse in a
hospital or sing in the cabaret. Miss
Smith sings. She sings to hide her broken
heart, and she also sings to Joel McCrea
for other reasons.
Only one of the terrific three is "un-
individualistic" enough to don a uniform
and fight for the Southern cause. This

LE JAZZ HOT reverberated among the
walls of a sparsely populated Hill Audi-
torium the other night but held its head
high in tribute to the noble efforts of those
seven musicians who gave all they had-
and then some. Although the hassle was a
financial fiasco for the Hot Record Society,
the Art Hodes Dixieland Jazz group had a
lot of fun playing Dixie as it should be
played. The music was full of life and had
that happy sound that no other music is
able to produce.
Hodes, a pianist, assembled five other
outstanding exponents of this American folk
music. Wild Bill Davison, trumpet star ex-
traordinaire, Brad Gowans, trombonist, Herb
Ward, bassist, Tony Sparbaro, drummer and
kazoo specialist, and Tony Parenti, who took
the place of Pee Wee Russle as clarinetist,
completed the group.
The ensemble work by the band was very
commendable, although the p.a. system
failed to give equal advantage to each mu-
sician; Parenti's clarinet was all but lost in
a maze of the powerful Davison trumpet on
many occasions. Hodes, aided by Sparbaro
and Ward, offered a strong, steady beat
throughout the entire performance. Hodes
also provided a good background on which
the other musicians could build.
Wild Bill was the oustanding performer
of the evening, and he displayed his crisp,
biting trumpet style to good advantage in
his solo, When Your Lover Has Gone.
Gowans was a disappointment, however, as
he detracted from his pleasing tone and in-
teresting phrasing by executing his solo work
