mittee as a part of the Michigan

The Committee, conceived and
proposed by Legislator Tom Walsh

methods by which interested stu-
dents can broaden their knowl-
edge and understanding of persons
outside their own groups."

THE LEGISLATURE also unani-.
mously approved a report by the
Committee of 13 suggestions for
action by interested individuals
and groups to promote social con-
tact, the most effective method by
which to foster the purposes of the

that: residences should be en-
couraged to invite foreign stu-
dents to dinner on a personal
acquaintance o r invitational

couraged to include one or two
foreign students at their "foreign
language tables" to participate in
foreign language practice sessions.
LANE HALL inter-cultural re-
treats and other group retreats

tage of the University's Fresh Air
Camp facilities.

Truman promised yesterday to use
the Taft-Hartley club in the soft
coal dispute-but only if an
emergency would arise and if
380,000 soft coal miners again
walked out at the end of John L.
Lewis' truce on December 1.
* * *
THE UNITED Mine Workers'
chief last week sent 'his men back
to dig coal for three weeks more
after a 52-day strike.
Mr. Truman, at his news con-
ferencg, ruled out appointment
of the kind of factfinding board
sident .he named in the recent steel dis-
e sour pute. It had power to recom-
mend a settlement outside the
labor law.
Turning to foreign affairs Presi-
dent Truman denounced as out
rageous the imprisonment of
American Consul General Angus
S Ward by the Chinese Communists
at Mukden.
HE HAD JUST spent 70 minutes
this morning reviewing with Sec-
.n Wash- retary of State Acheson the State
arrive in Department's developing stop-
Communism program for the Far
ed in the East.
Out of that meeting, to whch
Acheson took all his top . Var
esterday Eastern policy makers, came an
the Uni- announcement of projected ac-
tion in the immediate futuze.
'd that The announcement disclosed:
good- That Ambassador Philip C. Je-
States sup, Acheson's trouble-shooting
a frank diplomatic ace, will make an on-
an aid. the-spot survey of conditions in
dinner the Far East. He will leave the

uneasy 1950-51 will be a tight and honest
, already one, but inlicated once again that
an assis- he will call for a tax increase to
countries avoid deficit.
4,010,000 The President was asked what
he thought of a suggestion by
k-haired Senator Douglas (D., Ill.) that
eful of 4,500,000,004 be lopped off next
backing year's budget.
Why wasn't that done in the
last session, Mr. Truman wanted
L1IS to know. He said he sent Congress
a tight budget, but it returned one
.jid exceeding his figures.
brouhth SL To Probe

Filch Giant
The supposedly extinct feud be-
tween lawyers and engineers, came
to sudden life last night when a
band of lawyers abscounded with
the engineers giant slide rule.
An anonymous lawyer phoned
Al Forman, publicity director of
the Slide Rule Ball, last night and
informed him that the slide rule
had been taken from the office of
the 'Technic' and was now at the
Law Club.
* * *
THE STUDENT challenged For-
man and all engineers to,.;"try and
get it."
An attempt was made last
year to nab the slide rule but
alert engineers nipped the plot
by posting guards in the 'Tech-I
nic' office.
In 1947, the lawyers were more
successful and held the slide rule
in custody for two days, then, a
group of 'vigilantes' from the En-
gineering College, discovered it in
a fraternity house.
"We'll have the slide rule back
by Saturday night, in time for the
Slide Rule Ball, if we have to
search every room in the Law
Club," Forman promised.
