'U' Officials
Grieve Loss
Served As Dean
Nearly_25 Years
The University community to-
day mourned the death of Dean of
Women Alice C. Lloyd.
Miss Lloyd died yesterday at her
Washtenaw Avenue home after an
illness of two ,years. She was 56
years old, and had served the
University as women's adviser and
later as Dean of Women for al-
most a quarter-century.
* * *
IN HER DEATH "the Univer-
sity mourns the loss of one of its
very own," President Ruthven said
yesterday. "She has exercised the
office of Dean of Women with the
graciousness, wisdom and sym-
pathy which was hers alone and
which will never be forgotten."
"Few indeed are those who
have been held in equal affec-
tion and esteem by colleagues
and students, past and present."
Miss Lloyd, the daughter of a
former Graduate School dean, was
born in Ann Arbor. She had lived
in her 110-year-old home at 1735
Washtenaw Avenue from the
time she was six years old.

public schools and the Milton
Academy in Milton, Mass. After
her graduation from Milton in
1911 the Lloyd family traveled in
Europe for 15 months.
On their return, Miss Lloyd
attended the University from
1912 to 1916, concentrating in
history, English and philosophy.
Reminiscing about her Univer-
sity career a few months before
her death, she recalled the days
when Angell Hall was not yet
built, the Romance Language
Building served as a museum,
women students kept no hours,
and the Junior Girls Play was a
week-long show - in which she
had a leading role her junior
** *
Lloyd underwent nurse's training
in St. Luke's Hospital in New
York from 1918 to 1921
She had "always wanted to
go into social service work," so
for several years after the war
she served as a probation officer
of the Wayne County Probate
Court in Detroit.
In 1926 Pesident Clarence Cook
Little asked Miss Lloyd to return
once more to the University -
this time in the capacity of Ad-
viser of Women, a title that was
changed to Dean of Women four
years later.
* * * .
IN THE YEARS that followed,
Miss Lloyd's interest in women's
education bore fruit in educational
and social training in women's
residence halls. She was also ac-
tive in the vigorous campaign
throughout the '20s which resulted
in the construction of the Michi-
gan League in 1929.
During Miss Lloyd's tenure
four major residence halls for
women were completed-Stock-
well, Mosher-Jordan, and the
new women's residence. The

Women's Athletic Building was
also built during this time.
SPEAKING of her work not
long before her death, Miss Lloyd
said. "It's a privilege to have a
job that makes it your business to
associate with young people."
She also affirmed her faith
in youth. "I'm not one who
shakes my head at young peo-
ple. There were people in my
youth who did, but it's no use
inflicting the taboos of my gen-

MANCHESTER, N.H.-4(P)-A surgeon testified yesterday Dr.
Hermann N. Sander once persuaded him to operate on a paralyzed
woman to save her life when "the question was whether it, was wiser
to let natural causes lead to her death."
This testimony came shortly after the prosecution brought

D2AN LLOYD-Dean of University Women for 20 years, Alice
Crocker Lloyd died yesterday morning in her Washtenaw Ave.
home. In. failing health since November, 1947, she had been on
leave of absence for the past several months. Nationally promi-
nent for her work in the field of women's education, Dean Lloyd
has been thrice honored by student aid grants named for her.
Wachs' Charges Called

Striking back with claims of
"unfounded charges," AIM presi-
dent Marvin Failer yesterday
countered accusations 1 e v el 1 e d
against AIM Thursday by Mel
Wachs, Anderson House represen-
tative to that organization.
Wachs declared that his house
withdrew its affiliation with AIM
Wednesday because it found fault
with "the present AIM leadership"
which "will ruin campus politics
if it is not corrected."
IN REPLY to Wachs' blast that
AIM is "using the Committee to
End Discrimination as a means of
furthering their own political in-
terests," Failer remarked the only
connection his group has with
Petitions For
Athletic Board
Available Soon
Dave Belin, '51, chairman of
StudenteLegislature's citizenship
committee, yesterday announced
that petitions for one of two stu-
dent positions on the Board in
Control of Intercollegiate Athle-
tics will be available Monday.
Students interested in seeking
election to the post in this spring's
all-campus election may obtain
petitions from 3 to 5 p.m., Monday
through Friday at the SL office in
the Office of Student Affairs.
Two candidates for the position
will be nominated by the athletic
managers, and anyone else who
wishes to run must have 300 sig-
natures on his petition, according
to Belin.
* * *
IN ADDITION, petitions for
Senior Class officers and SL can-
didates will be issued at the same
Pointing out that the Athletic
Board elections formerly were
held every spring until two years
ago, Belin said that the gradu-
ation of Board member Wally
Teninga would leave it with only
one 'student representative next
"We feel that moving the elec-
tion up to this spring will insure
adequate student representation
nn the Board next fall," Belin said.

CED is sending one AIM delegate
to CED meetings.
"We have absolutely no political
interest in CED," Failer added.
Wachs had also claimed AIM
was "channeling a number of
dorm political activities to their
own ends by means of an inte-
grated system of sympathizers
within the dormitories.
He went on to criticize the group
for "taking legislative power from
the independent's representative
and concentrating it in the hands
of a few AIM officers," and "elim-
inating certain unaffiliated can-
didates in past Student Legislature
elections from supposedly non-
partisan AIM election lists that in-
fluence voting opinions of many."
"AIM HAS never interfered in
dorm politics, nor intentionally de-
leted or edited in any manner its
SL election lists," Failer said.
"Furthermore, the AIM's leg-
islative power still resides in the
AIM council.
"Wachs has wandered so far
from the truth," Failer comment-
ed, "that it is impossible to find
any factual basis for any of his
MEANWHILE, the AIM council
called a meeting of men's dormi-
tory presidents for 8:30 p.m. Tues-
day at the Union.
At the parley, house heads will
discuss the "composition and
structure of AIM in its relation to
the campus as a whole and to each
independent man," Failer said yes-
The meeting was prompted by a
decision at last week's AIM coun-
cil meeting to establish clearly
that organization's position in re-
gard to the individual dormitory
resident, he added. Various house
presidents also requested the ac-
tion, Failer said.

Air Injection
- U' Doctor
"Allowing 40 cubic centimeters
of air to be shot into the veins is
like playing Russian roulette-you
have a fair chance of winning but
you may lose your life," a profes-
sor of internal medicine at the
University Hospital said yesterday.
His comment referred to Dr.
Harry M. Robinson of the Univer-
sity of Maryland and Johns Hop-
kins Medical Schools who offered
to take the injections to aid the,
defense of Dr. Hermann N. San-
der in the "mercy killing" trial.
DR. ROBINSON said he has in-
jected "40 or more" cubic centi-
meters of air into many patients'
veins without harmful effects.
"Doctors ordinarily avoid in-
jecting air into patients' veins. So
it is difficult to predict what would
happen if they did," the University
doctor said.
"But I would say survival in the
case of a deliberate injection de-
pends on the health of the patient,
the condition of his heart and the
position he is in when receiving
the injection," he continued.
or blood vessels-which is especial-
ly dangerous when it takes. place
in the brain-may be the results of
the injection, the doctor said.
"Occasionally air is sent into the
veins at an accident where, for in-
stance, the lung is injured by a
broken rib.
"But these cases are so rare that
studies of air in the veins are al-
most non-existent," the doctor ex-

Dr. Rtobert Rix, who was a

that Sander once called him to

Buckeyes Lead
Natators, 39-33
The Western Conference swim-

high gear at the varsity pool last
night and at the end of the eve-
ning's competition Ohio State's
Buckeyes were leading the Wolver-
ines by a score of 39-33.
Eleven points behind Michigan
is Iowa with a total of 25 points
followed by Purdue, 16, Northwest-

Indiana, 1 and Illinois, who did
not qualify a single man for last
night's events, is in last place.
Wolverines took two first places,
the Buckeyes copping the low
board diving and the 150-yard
backstroke with Michigan taking
the 220-yard free style and the
400-yard freestyle relay.
Swimming fans were treated
to a mild surprise when Mike

slightly poorer showing than was
expected. B i g T e n champ

Labor Says
Steel To.Be
LONDON--(P)-The Labor gov-
vernment has decided against
back-tracking on the nationaliza-
tion of steel, informed sources said
last night.
It is now the law of the land
that the iron and steel industry is
to be nationalized on Jan. 1, 1951.1
Only a repeal of this law would
prevent nationalization.I
AT THE SAME time, the Labor1
government is still hunting other1
ways to strengthen its chances of1
political survival.
The decision became known asi
the Labor Party, holding a pre-
carious seven-seat majority in
the House of Commons to open
formally Monday, found itself

Beaverbrook's anti - Labor press
continued to trumpet for the ous-
ter of John Strachey as war min-
ister in the new cabinet. Beaver-
brook's newspapers said Strachey
was an avowed Communist. The
Labor government denied it.
Strachey said last night he
supported Communist doctrines
before World War II, but broke
with the Communists over their
refusal to back Britain's war ef-
fort in 1940.
"The statement that I remain
an avowed Communist is false," he
2. The economic front - the
shipbuilding and engineering un-
ions ordered a vote to decide
whether to strike or arbitrate de-
mands rejected by the government
for a one pound ($2.80) weekly pay
hike. The unions have a member-
ship of 800,000, but a strike could
make 3,000,000 men in the indus-
try idle.
THE EXECUTIVE committee of
the Trades Union Congress (TUC),
with 8,000,000 members, will meet
next Wednesday to discuss the
government's policy to fight in-
flation by freezing wage increases.
A break here would be serious for
labor, since TUC is Labor's biggest
mouthpiece. The TUC narrowly
approved the wage-freeze policy
prior to the election.
House Votes
State Status

Alaska the 49th state, but it post-

Passage of the Alaskan measure
on a roll call vote of 186 to 146

bate such as has marked Congres-
sional consideration of similar
legislation since it was first pro-'
posed 34 years ago.

Pit Seizure Plan
WASHINGTON - (P) - A coal
peace pact granting sweeping
concessions to John L. Lewis was
agreed upon in principle last night
and there was every sign that the
nation-wide strike which had
brought the country to the verge
of paralysis was as good as over.
Southern operators were still
holding out, but it was predicted
they would fall in line.
IN VIEW of the big break in
the long deadlock, Congressional
leaders were ready to shelve Presi-
dent Truman's request for power
to seize and operate the mines.-

The terms of settlement were
not announced immediately, but
numerous sources in a position to
know said they included:
1. An increase of 70 cents in
the basic daily wage, bringing it
to $14.75. Lewis had demanded a
95 cent boost.
2. A 10-cent per ton increase
in the royalty payments for ijili-
ers welfare, bringing the payments
to 30 cents a ton.
3. A welfare fund control setup
considered favorable to Lewis. The
fund would be administered by. a
board consisting of Thomas Ken-
nedy, UMW vice president, Jo-
sephine Roche, who has been
Lewis' director for the fund; and
Harry M. Moses, negotiator for

THE CONTRACT, due to run
until July 1, 1952, also was un-

The agreement on "funda-
mental principles" for a new
contract was announced by
Chairman David L. Cole of the
presidential coal fact-finding
board. He said it was reached by
Lewis and representatives of
coal operators preducing "a pre-
ponderance of the tonnage of
the industry."
A number of details remain to

But his announcement was made
after a dramatic night session with
Lewis and George H. Love, repre-3
senting northern and western op-
erators, and Harry H. Moses, nego-
tiating for steel companies which
own so-called "captive" mines.
Together Love and Moses
represent approximately 30,--
000,000 tons of production year-
ly - well over one half of the
nation's output.
There was much speculation on

the reasons for the operators' deal
with Lewis. It is known that the
union's acquittal on contempt
charges came as a complete sur-
prise to the operators.
