in public housing the Rev. Robert

clared last night.

Rev. Bradby said that segrega-
tion has been an official policy
in Detroit ever since the initia-
tion of the public housing pro-
gram in the Edgecomb adminis-
Rev. Bradby said that he has al-
ways opposed this practice and
that he had made many a motion
to end this policy during his term
in office. None of the motions ev-
er received the consideration of
the Commission, he added.
Rev. Bradby charged that the
Detroit police department and the

ment Associations were extreme-
ly active forces in maintaining
segregation in housing.

If, the proposals pass, they will
be taken to the engineering facul-
ty and administration and the

"We need as many or as more
votes today as yesterday to give
the Council the backing it needs
to carry the proposals through,"
he added.

Move Toward
Social Equality
Seen by Dorr
Speaking to members of the
18th annual Adult Edlucation In-
stitute, Prof. Harold M. Dorr de-
clared that striving for political
democracy, now an accepted part
of American life, is being climax-
ed in a great surge toward social
and economic equality.
Dorr explained that through
nearly 200 years of our history
we "have moved steadily toward
greater political equality. It fol-
lows inevitably that when the
masses have political power they
will use that power to eliminate
social and economic inequality."
Lectures today on science,
democracy, medicine and fine
arts will conclude the three-day

tronomy department, will talk on

Mounts Over,
Tuesday Vote
Controversy mounted yesterday
over the so-called "five per cent"
amendments proposed for the
Michigan Union constitution.
Two campus leaders whole-
heartedly disagreed on the merits
of the proposals. But the final
decision rests in the hands of
Union members,who have been
called on to accept or reject the
amendments at a mass meeting
Tuesday night.

'51, was strongly fearful that the
Union constitution would become
"stagnant" if the "five per cent"
amendments were passed at the
Tuesday meeting. Belin lashed out
at the amendments on grounds
that they would "make it harder
to amend the constitution."
But retiring president Bill
Wise, '50 BAd, denied this. In-
stead, Wise declared, the amend-
mnents would result in "more
people thinking about the Union
and a reflexion of a larger and
hence more valuable segment of
Here in brief, is what the "five
per cent" amendments call for:
1. Increasing the number of stu-
dents required for a quorum at
future meetings for constitutional
revision. At present 400 Union
members can make up a quorum.
2, Increasing the number of stu-
dents required to petition for a
general meeting. 200 Union mem-
bers may now petition.
These amendments have been
endorsed by the Union Board of
Directors. Noting the "increasing-
ly organized housing around here,"
Wise asserted that they "shouldn't
make it more difficult to bring
about constitutional changes."

Forum Plans Slowed
By Lack of Speakers

Plans for a Michigan Forum de-

Hooverf Plan,
Says Pollock
With only a quarter of the
Hoover Commission's proposals for
revamping the administration in
effect, the plan has become stym-
ied in Congress because of opposi-
tion of bureaucrats and special
interest groups, Prof. James K.
Pollock, chairman of the political
science department, charged yes-
"I am delighted with former
President Hoover's attack on these
groups, and hope that it will move
members of Congress to take fur-
ther action on the commission's
plan during this session," Prof.
Pollock said.

A drastically curtailed program

cause of the lack of speakers, For-

David Henry, of Wayne University,
declined the Forum's invitation to
speak in favor of campus speaker
restrictions. President Henry re-

Herbert Phillips speak on the
Wayne campus.
Original plans called for a de-

No University faculty member
