THERE ARE two stock stories

One story gives the credit to
some mischievous boys who
played a stunt on Halloween.
It seems the town's only gaso-

the road into Hel. Late Hallo-

the accidentally-found title.
The other story about "Hell"
goes back to the days of the cow-

Progresses Towards Goals
By DAVIS CRIPPEN
"It's been a long haul, but we've
just about got things squared away
in the house," Bill Miller, Grad.,
public relations chairman of the
Nelson International House said
The establishment, first of its
kind on campus and one of the
few in the country, moved in the
beginning of the semester to 915
Oakland, but before the men could
settle extensive changes had to be
* * *
THROUGH ALL this time, Mil-
ler said, the men have been work-
ing at the real objective of a house
devoted to international living-
they've been getting acquainted
with each other.
Helping the get acquainted
program along has been the pol-
icy of national dinners. Under
it, on Saturday nights the men
from a particular country get
together and serve a meal typi-
cal of their native land.
So far the men from China,
Thailand, India, and last Satur-
day, Iran, have been chefs for a
day to the house.
"IF YOU'LL excuse my saying
so," Miller said with a sly grin,
"the men are wild about the idea.
In fact, they just eat it up."
The Citizen's Committee for the
Hoover Commission Report will
hold its second meeting at 7:30
p.m. today in the Union.

tion in writing prior to May 15

Besides the countries already
mentioned, there are six others
represented among the men in
the house: Turkey, Japan, Hol-
land, Norway, Brazil and the
As for admittance into the
house, Don Haskell, personnel di-
rector, explained that the process
is not complicated.
The applicants fill out a form,
which asks only their name and
address and why they want to get
in the house. Then the application
is passed on.
"Anyone, foreign or American,
who is interested in applying for
next fall," Haskell said, "can call
me at 3-8506."

In an attempt to discover a
workable definition of academic
freedom suitable for times of ten-
sion, the Ann Arbor Federation of
Teachers has scheduled a public
service meeting to be held at 7:45
p.m. Thursday in the Unitarian
Prof. A. K. Stevens, chairman
of the Teachers Federation locally
will preside over the discussion en-
titled "Academic Freedom in and
for a Free Society."
PARTICIPATING as discussion
leaders on various facets of the
topic will be Prof. William Fran-
kena, chairman of the philosophy
department, John Shepard of the
psychology department and Nor-
man Nelson of the English depart-
Lewis Reimann, local civic and
business leader will also take
part in the discussion.
"It is high time somebody got
down to brass tacks in defining
academic freedom," Prof. Stevens
* * *
"SOME TEACHERS think it
means only the right to regulate
window shades in the class room,
while others seem to think it is
an automatic guarantee of immu-
nity for intellectual hooliganism."
Question to be discussed at
the meeting include: Is academ-
ic freedom a luxury or a neces-
sity? Is absolute freedom possi-
ble? What are the responsibili-
ties of the teacher in a free
society? At what point does a
teacher become a subversive?
Prof. Stevens requested all
teachers, present and prospective
attend the meeting.
