Strikes Ignored By University Foundry

PARTS FOR engineering labor-
atories, pulleys, machine and
boiler and furnace parts are sup-
plied by the foundry, which can
handle any weight casting up to
one-half ton, according to Prof.
Franklyn Rote of the metal pro-
cessing department.
The basic piece of equipment
is a large cupola which is used
for melting cast iron. The cu-
pola handles 7,000 tons of iron

extending on to the roof of the
Molten metal from the cupola,

placing the pattern to be repro-

special powder into the flask.

Hope Held
For Reform
Of Germanty
Dorr Says U.S.
Mustn't Give Up
America's "disappointing" pro-
gram in Germany should not
cause us to give up trying to
democratize that country, Prof.
Harold Dorr of. the political
science department said yesterday.
Speaking at a meeting of the
American Association of Univer-
sity Women, Prof. Dorr termed
the democratization of Germany
"disappointing but not a failure."
He said abandonment of the plan
by the U.S. would be a great mis-
* * *
AMONG encouraging factors
listed by Prof. Dorr are a grow-
ing trend toward "democratic
thinking" from the high echelons
of government to the peasant level,
a sizable electoral reform effort,
and an increasing number of Ger-
man liberals.
The U.S. occupation govern-
ment has had only four years in
which to attempt to educate the
Germans to democracy, he
pointed out. In terms of the
centuries covered by German
history, this is an exceedingly
short time in which to try to ef-
fect major changes, he said.
There are many discouraging
things evident in Germany, Prof.
Dorr continued. nAmerican polling
of "German opinion has revealed
that more than half the people
still think national socialism was a
good idea, that the Germans are
incapable of democratic self-
government and that economic
security is preferable to freedom.
THE GREATEST obstacle to
German democratization and self-
government is the multitude of
fears in Europe, Prof. Dorr em-
Germany is afraid of Russia.
France is afraid that America,
will permit Germany to re-arm.
Britain is afraid of the rising
might of German industry.
All these fears-together with
the cold war-combine to make
the path of democracy a thorny
one in Germany, Prof. Dorr said.

Pledges Give Sigma Chi
Quick Trip Into Canada

Don Wolfe,-'50BAd., is still won-
dering why he happened to end up
on a lonely road near Maidstone,
Ontario in the dark hours just
before dawn Tuesday morning.
Wolfe, a Sigma Chi, was seized
in front of the Union about 10
p.m. Monday by four of his fra-
ternity pledges and "taken for a
ride" across the Detroit River to a
desolate spot about 16 miles out-
side of Windsor.
POINTING out that the pledges
had unsuccessfully attempted to

two days earlier, Wolfe said, "I
still can't figure out why they
elected me."
After tying his hands and feet
and covering him with coats on
the floor of the car to smuggle
him past the customs officials
at the Detroit-Windsor tunnel,
the pledges deposited Wolfe on
an out-of-the-way rural road-
minus his money and watch.
Finally reaching a nearby farm,
Wolfe aroused the owner-to dis-
cover that he spoke only French.
After trying sign language and
guttural grunts, Wolfe finally
called the Canadian Provincial Po-
lice, who relayed the distress call
through the Michigan State po-
lice, to the Ann Arbor police-
finally reaching Associate Dean of
Students, Walter B. Rea.

DEAN REA then called the
Sigma Chi house and Wolfe was
finally rescued at the Windsor
customs office by four of his fra-
ternity brothers.
While Wolfe carries no hard
feelings toward his pledge broth-
ers, he said that they just "added
to the burden" of their informal
initiation, which they are cur-
rently undergoing.

WHEN COQLED the casting is
removed and placed in a coffin
shaped machine which cleans the
casting and removes traces of the
molding powder.
An essential part of the foun-
dry's operations is its testing lab-
oratory. Here special instruments

test the qualities of the castings
and determine tensile strengths of
the metals.
Iron, aluminum, brass, bronze,
and gold and silver are some of
the metals cast in the foundry.
The foundry, which is the oldest
University plant of its kind, is
also doing metallurgical research
for the government, according to

course," he added hastily.

BACK OF THIS projected patri-

shirt especially cleaned for the
trip home and will go into the
lion's den of Champaign wear-
ing it and vigorously waving a
Michigan banner.
His parents have kept their
opinions of his actions to them-
selves. "My mother," Stoddard
said, "only warned me to have
Michigan lose."
HIS PARENTS also haven't
sent their son any inside infor-
mation on Saturday's game. "I
guess for that you'll have to read
our boy Tommy (Thomas Devine,
a Detroit reporter)," he said.
Stoddard said he decided to
attend Michigan because it was
better than any other school
he'd heard of.

"No female applicants, no fe-
male applicants at all."
Such was the complaint of Capt.
William Evans and Lt. M. W.
