T AG DAY TOMORROW:
French Student Lands WSSF Activities

U' To Distribute Political
Co'luuns to State Press

"The World Student Service
Fund has given many European
students a new energy for life,"
said a French graduate physics
student here who spent several
weeks in a W.S.S.F. rest center.
The campus W.S.S.F. drive for
$5,000 will begin tomorrow with a
special tag day.
THE FRENCH student out-
lined conditions at Combloux, a
W.$.S.F. rest center, in 1946 and
1941.
There were two general types
who went to the rest camps, he
reported. Many students were
broken in health after years
of work in the underground.
These peoPle were required to
stay for long periods. Others
who took up their studies after
the war went to the center dur-
ing vacation periods for much
needed rest.
Despite their need for rest, th
student maintained an active pro-
gram at Combloux, the French
student said. Lecturers were
brought to the camp to stir inter-
est in political discussions.
* * *
THESE DISCUSSIONS brought
many points of view, for students
from many parts of Europe were
there, he explained. Displaced
Dinner To Hon(
The International Center will
serve the semester's first "Inter-
national Supper" at 6:30 p.m.
Sunday in honor of the newly-
elected ISA officers.
These suppers, which are cus-
tomarily given every other Sun-
day, are unique in that a different
foreign dish is featured at each
meal. In the past, Indian, Turk-
ish, Spanish and many other for -
eign foods have been represented.
TIS WEEK an Italian dinner

A weekly column on vital na-
tional and world issues will be
distributed to the press through-
out the state the political science
department has announced.
The column. which will include
background material and opinions

by Prof. Marshall M. Knappen of

a Hadassah - made technicolor
sound film, will be shown Tues-
day, Feb. 22, in the Architecture

Sponsored Dy the B'nai B'rith
Hillel Foundation and the Inter-

America, the film stars nearly 200
young Jewish children pioneering
a children's village at Ben She-
men.
Actually photographed in the
unique Israel village, it depicts the
psychological rehabilitation of a
young refugee boy who is typical
of the 33,000 children whom Ha-
dassah has helped to maintain
and educate in Palestine for the
last 14 years.

go to eastern Europe to meet
Stalin was the topic of the first
column.
Arguments for the meeting ran
the gamut from the idea that a
little personal talk might pay big
dividends, and if Stalin is propa-
gandizing we can call his bluff to'
the fact that Truman is younger
than Stalin and should be willing
to travel.
OBJECTIONS TO the proposed
meeting include the idea that the
Russians should show their intent
by lifting the blockade first, that
a trip by Truman would be a sign
of weakness on our part and that
we would offend our western Eu-
ropean allies by meeting with the
Communists.
The claim is that the Rus-
sians can negotiate through the
UN or regular diplomatic chan-
nels if they are willing to talk
peace.
Labor injunctions in the Taft-
Hartley Act were the topic of the
second column. Arguments for
keeping this part of last year's
labor act included:
*,* *
1. LABOR SHOULD be made to
realize that the interests of the
country come first.
2. That, without the power,
the President's emergency au-
thority would be shadowy or
even lnon-existent.
3. The promise to remove the
injunction power was only a cam-
paign item because the President
has said that he still can get
emergency injunctions.
* * *
THREE arguments were pre-
sented against the injunction
clause:
1. Labor is growing in its
sense of responsibility and will
not do anything to endanger the
national interest.
2. Giving one man the power to
influence the economic well being
of thousands of citizens runs con-
trary to American standards of
fair play.
3. Labor has as much right to
generous treatment from a Con-
gress it helped elect as private
management had to the support of
the conservative, 80th Congress.
The series was approved by
Prof. James K. Pollock, chairman
of the political science depart-
ment and will become a weekly
public service of the University.

With a pay load of 0 tons, the
crewboats will be capable of going
over 18 miles an hour with the
aid of two diesel engines generat-
ing 1,500 horsepower and driving
triple screws.

historical background of the

of the article to T. Hawley

Tapping then relayed the
story to F. Clever Bald, assistant

After investigating the history
of the nickname which stemmed
from the vicious characteristics of
the powerful Michigan animal,
Bald sent further information to

Flu Shots Not Cause
Complaints of colds and sore
throats brought to the University
Health Service by students have
been kept to the minimum, ac-
cording to Health Service Direc-
tor, Dr. Warren E. Forsythe.
Among the patients examnined
by the doctors, 24 per cent of the
complaints are diagnosed as being
common colds. However, this is no
greater amount than is expected
for this season of the year.
CONTRARYV t o) popular t louglhit,
there is no scienitific evidence that,
the influenza sh-ots obtained by
the studemnts duiring, the first week
of November have kept down the
number of sneezes and sore
throats.
Dr. Forsythe said that the flu
injections were given to Univer-
sity students as a protection
against an epidemic of flu and
are by no nmeans a cold preven-
tative.
Science is still corncenltrating17,on
finding a preventative against the
colds contacted in winter weather.
