Adopted by NSA
By PETER HOTTON
"The "Michigan Plan," the University's scheme to eliminate dis-
criminatory clauses from campus organizations, has set a national
pattern for student action to more than 300 campuses across the
nation, affecting 1,000,000 members of the National Student Associa-
Sponsored by University delegates to the NSA Congress last
August, the Michigan Plan won out over more extreme proposals
from both left and right factions.
THE PLAN URGES ALL NSA member colleges to adopt a
University regulation, passed last spring, stating that no new campus
organization will be recognized if it has in its constitution a clause
restricting membership because of race or religion.
The NSA policy contemplates securing the elimination of
discriminatory clauses without any further limitations being im-
posed on the campus organizations, according to SL member Tom

-"Theplan anticipates a

plants of the Aluminum Com-
pany of America.
About one-quarter of the na-
tion's aluminum was shut off as
the strike brought the nation's to-
tal strike idle to about one mil-

southeast, the Chinese Communists are reported, to have a clear

the two-day-old capital of the Nationalists, appears to be in
imminent danger and Kunming, 400 air miles to the Southwest,
is said to be the next capital and therefore the next goal of a

'U' Dorm Site
A 12-member circuit court jury
yesterday inspected property at
603 Monroe St. which the Univer-
sity is seeking to acquire through
condemnation proceedings as part
of the site of a proposed new
eight-story men's dormitory.
The owners of the property re-
fused an offer by the University
last March which was based on
opinions of two real estate ap-
praisers. Condemnation proceed-
ings were initiated on the prop-
erty, the last of 10 sites sought
by the University, last July.
The proposed "skyscraper" res-
idence hall will be bounded by
Packard, Madison and Monroe Sts.
and the two fraternity houses lo-
cated on S. State St. It will be
erected on a "self-liquidating"
plan, through which money bor-
rowed by the University will be
paid back from profits in the op-
eration of the dormitory.

Dean Hayward Keniston, of the1
literary college, will give an ad-
dress on "The Essence of a Liberal
Education" before a speech assem-
bly at 4 p.m. tomorrow in Rack-
ham Lecture Hall.
The assembly is open to the pub-
cording to Prof. Russell Fifield of
the political science department.
After routing the Chinese Na-
tionalists at Canton, the Commu-
nist forces have approached the
borders of Hongkong which has
been alerted to "war" status.
"THE BRITISH are apprehen-
sive but feel prepared for any
emergency. Outright invasion is
not expected," Prof. Fifield said.
According to Prof. Fifield, the
Communists in China can do
one of three things.
First, they can invade the Im-
perial British colony which would
mean war with Great Britain and
the Pacific members of the Brit-

SECOND, THEY can take ag-
gressive measures short of war by
establishing an economic blockade
or by instigating sabotage within

fective because ninety-eight per-

munists can enter into close polit-
ical and economic relations with
"BECAUSE of their economic
interests in China the British
government appears more willinlg
to recognize the Chinese Commu-
nists than does the American gov-
ernment," Prof. Fifield added.

turn of Hongkong to China but

WASHINGTON-Advocates of a
bigger air force won a major vic-
tory last night in Washington as
Senators who had been holding
out for 48 air groups gave in at
last to House demands that Con-
gress vote money for 58.
The long-standing deadlock had
been one of the major obstacles
to early adjournment of Congress.
Differences between Senate and
House had blocked approval of a
fifteen billion dollar bill to finance
the Armed Services for this year.

THE SENATORS' capitulation
to House demands still must be
approved by the fu Senate and
Mr. Truman had sided with
the Senate in the dispute over
Air Force funds.
Twice last week he said that
48 groups was enough, and that
there was no need to spend the
$741,386,000 additional necessary
to build the force up to 58 groups.
THE BREAK came shortly after
the Senate Appropriations Com-
mittee approved the full $1,314,-
010,000 the Truman Administra-
tion asked to help re-arm non-
Communist nations. Senate pas-
sage is expected. The House has
already voted a similar sum.
In addition to approving the
Foreign arms program money,
the Senate committee okayed
funds to build a radar screen
around the United States, and
for military construction in
Alaska and Okinawa.
At the same time in Washing-
ton, Gen. Clifton B. Bates, chief
of the U.S. Marines, with his eye
also on appropriations, accused
