School Gets
Financial Aid
Discriminatory
OfferRejected
Five and 10 dollar bills are pour-
ing in from the "little people" all
over the country to help finan-
cially stricken Jefferson Military
College, the little school in Nat-
chez, Miss., that turned down a
$50,000,000 grant rather than bar
Jewish students.
The fabulous endowment offer
was made two weeks ago by
George Armstrong, Fort Worth,
Texas oil man with the following
stipulations:
* * *
"A. THAT THE charter of Jef-
ferson Military College be amend-
ed reducing the number of trus-
tees to five (from twelve) and
giving the directors of the Judge
Armstrong Foundation power to
appoint three of them.
"B. That the charter be fur-
ther amended to provide that
the school shall be primarily
for white Christians, with the
stipulation that no African or
Asiatic or person of African or
Asiatic descent be admitted as
a student or in the faculty."
Persons of "African" descent
were already barred from white
schools by the laws of the State of
Mississippi but when the Jeffer-
son trustees learned that the word
"Asiatic" would exclude Jews,
they balked at Armstrong's offer.
* * *
SINCE THAT TIME dozens of
small contributions totalling more
than $1,000 have flooded the col-
lege trustees who are facing a
desperate financial situation.
In addition, the New York
Times reported Sunday that a
Natchez citizens' committee has
been formed to raise funds for
the 50-student academy. No goal
has been set for the drive.
Paul Schiling of Natchez, Mis-
sissippi, radio station chain man-
ager and a representative for the
Jefferson trustees, told the Times
that one check for $100 had been
received by the college from a Ne-
gro chamber of commerce in Chi-
cago.
It wastaccompanied by a note
saying that although Negroes
could not attend the school, the
stand of the trustees against one
form of discrimination deserved
nation-wide support.

For Engine
Committees
Written applications are now
being accepted for five engineer-
ing senior class committees, ac-
cording to Bill Upthegrove, en-
gineering senior class president.
Positions are open on the Re-
union, Cap and Gown, Commence-
ment Announcements, Publicity
and Special Activities Committees
" . and the more people we
get, the better job we can do,"
Upthegrove said.
* * *
"THE REUNION committee will
be the core of this year's class in
the future, and the Special Acti-
vities group will investigate the
possibilities of a senior class cruise,
collect class dues, and plan the
Senior Ball," Upthegrove said.
"This would be a good chance
for senior engineering students
who haven't participated in
many activities outside of class
to get in some extra-curricular
fun before they leave the Uni-
versity," Upthegrove concluded.'
Applications may be suomitted
to Arnold Gowan, senior engineer-
ing class secretary, in care of the
Secretary's office in the College
of Engineering.
K. of C. Calls
Minstrel Men
Men skilled in the art of black-
face may try out for the third
annual Knights of Columbus min-
strel show at 7:30 today at the
K. of C. clubhouse, Steve Filipiak,
director of the revue, has an-
nounced.
A,20-voice chorus composed of
students and townsmen will be
selected at the meeting.
Proceeds of the show will be
used to support a statewide
Knights of Columbus project.
The group is financing the
maintenance of Boysville School
in Macon, Mich.
The year-old institution is run
on a plan comparable to that in
effect at Boys Town, Neb.
Will Parry, Grad. SM, will as-
sist Filipiak in the production of
the program.

Students a n d Ann Arbor-
ites are enthusiastic football fans.
but they are flops at pre-game
pigskin prediction.
Exactly 1038 postal cards were
sent to a local theatre last week
in response to a Daily advertise-
ment which offered two free tick-
ets to "The Red Shoes" for a pre-
diction of the final score of the
Michigan-Purdue game.
* * *
NONE OF THE CARDS gave,
the proper 20 to 12 score.
Some students apparently
wanted to see the movie a great
deal. Abe Medweek, '51, sent in
25 post cards with a different
score on each--none right.
And Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Meech-
am, of the Veterans Housing Pro-
ject, sent in 22 wrong entries be-
tween them.
MEDWECK AND the Meechams
VA Agrees On
Sewa__Plan
Veterans Administration has
given the green light to a proposed
contract with Ann Arbor allowing
extension of sewer and water fa-
cilities to the $7,000,000 500-bed
Veterans Hospital, now under con-
struction at Glacier Way and Ful-
ler Rd.
City Council members were in-
formed by Mayor William Brown,
Jr., that the VA's proposed agree-
ment is "substantially the same"
as that reached by councilmen in
August. Minor changes involve
worker payments and water main
distances.
At a special meeting Monday
night, the Council plans to study
the suggestions.

will receive passes to the show as
a reward for their mass guessing,
according to Jack Helm, field re-
presentative for "The Red Shoes."
Eighty-five persons predicted
a 21-7 score.
"Had the game ended this way,
I would have fled the country,"
Helm declared.
* * *
THE PREDICTIONS were more
or less centered around the 21-7
figure, with 75 cards guessing a
20-7 score and 51 others predict-
ing 27-7 as the final result of the
game.
Local fans are apparently
quite loyal to the Wolverines.
Only three people predicted a
Purdue victory.
Predictions were entered in a
variety of ways. One came on a
colored post card showing the
Cunard-White Star liner "Maure-
tania," while another card pic-
tured the interior of a flashy New
York City Hungarian restaurant.
* * ,*
THIS WAS Helm's first experi-
ence at running such a contest to
promote "Red Shoes" interest. He
indicated that it will be his last,
too.
"I could never stand the strain,"
he moaned.

NO MOVIE TONIGHT:
Pigskin Predictors Fail
To Pick Purdue Score

The Scalp and Blade fraternity
is back.
The group of Buffalo and Erie
County students whose active cam-
pus career was interrupted by the
war has been reorganized and is
now recruiting new members.
ONLY REQUIREMENTS for

Faculty Men
Give Recitals
Two faculty recitals, piano and
organ, will highlight musical
events at the University today.
Robert Noehren, Universityor-'
ganist, will give the first in a
series of four November recitals at
4:15 p.m. in Hill Auditorium..
Benning Dexter, of the School
of Music, will play a program of
piano music at 8:30 p.m. in Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre.
* * *
NOEHREN WILL PLAY works
by four composers, incuding
Bach's "Toccata, Adagio -ate Fu-
gue in C major," Franck's Choral
in E major, and "Stele pour un
enfant defunt" by Vierne. <Reub-
ke's Sonata, "The 94th Psalm,"
will conclude the program.
Noehren has played recitals
extensively in this country, and
during the past summer he
made concert appearances in
London, Holland and Belgium.
He has studied composition un-
der Paul Hindemith.
For the past three years, Noeh-
ren has been organist and instruc-
tor of music at Davidson College
in North Carolina. He was ap-
pointed lecturer in organ and
University organist for the year
1949-50.

ness to go through an initiation
during the Christmas vacations in
Buffalo, according to Edwin Brin-
kel, president.
The Scalp and Blade, since it
was founded at the University
of Syracuse in 1893, has estab-
lished chapters in most East-
ern universities.
It has a large graduate chapter
in Buffalo, which besides its social
functions is active in civic af-
fairs.
* * *
THOUGH UP to now the Scalp
and Blade has followed fraternity
tradition in excluding women from
its ranks, it is seriously consider-
ing the addition of a women's
auxiliary, Brinkel said.
In the past the group has had
parties and dances both here and
in Buffalo. .
But plans for the future are
completely up to the members, ac-
cording to Brinkel.
The next meeting will be held at
7:30, Nov. 20, in the Union.
