CED Stands
Fast on Bias
Accusations
Applications still
Under Question
The Committee to End Discrim-
ination yesterday stated that it
will continue its drive for the re-
moval of discriminatory questions
from Medical School application
blanks.
"The Medical School more than
any other has been the target of
accusations of admissions dis-
crimination," the Committee said
in a policy statement.
"ON DECEMBER 13, members
of the CED met with Prof. Wayne
L. Whitaker.of the Medical School
to inquire into the removal of re-
quests for photograph, religion,
nationality and former name if
changed," according to the CED.
Prof. Whitaker said, "All
these questions might be deleted
without immeasurably hamper-
lng the work of the admissions
committee."
The CED's statement declared
"It is the duty of this University
as an educational instiution to
take the lead in eliminating any
suspicions of admission dis-
crimination, which will continue
to recur so long as these ques-
tions appear on the admissions
applications.
At its meeting last night, the
CED endorsed the mobilization of
the National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People, to
be held January 15 to 17 in Wash-
%ington. Leon Rechtman, CED
Chairman, will attend as a rep-
resentative of the Committee.
A PROPOSED constitutional
amendment, previously tabled,
was withdrawn last night. The
amendment would have barred
from the CED all organizations
whose constitutions contain dis-
criminatory clauses.
Next Friday's meeting of the
CED will be an election meeting.
Rechtman urged all members to
attend.
Petitronmg Opens

Men's Judiciary Council may pick

day in the Administration Build-
ing, according to SL cabinet mem-
ber Hugh Greenberg.
Three positions are open on the
Cotecil which deals with men's
cases of infraction of SL rules of
conduct as well as cases referred
to it by the University subcommit-
tee on discipline.

research workers scheduled to es-
tablish a field center. in Okayama,
Japan,
The first four members of the
faculty staff and graduate stu-

dents are scheduled to leave early
in February. Included in this
group are Prof. Robert Hall, of

Ann Arbor Alain Places Youth
On 'Jiior Junction' Program

Ann Arbor boasts 'an unusual
crop of teenagers.
For the second time in three
months a local boy has been cho-
sen as the unusual teenager of
the week to appear on the coast
to coast radio program "Junior
Junction."
ROY WAGGONER, son of Dr.
and Mrs. R. S. Waggoner, will be
interviewed on the American
Broadcasting Company show as
this week's "junior you should
know" at 10:3'0 a.m. today from
the WHRV studios.
Roy, who is 15 years old and
and is in the tenth grade at Uni-
versity high school, plays basket-
ball and tinkers with the radio
in his spare time.
His chief hobby is model plane,
building.

Last year he was chosen to
represent Michigan at the opening
of Idlewilde Airport in New York
where international contests and
exhibitions of model jet engines
and reciprocating planes were
held. Roy placed seventh out of
150 contestants in the reciprocat-
ing plane divisions.
Several months ago Tom
Cameron of Ann Arbor was chosen
to appear on Junior Junction.
Parley Postponed
The Democracy In Education
Conference scheduled for today
and tomorrow has been postponed
to Feb. 25 and 26.
Students from several Michigan
colleges attending the conference
will exchange techniques used by
liberal campus groups.

science department, and John
Eyre, graduate student in geogra-
phy, will also go, taking members
of their families with them.
Supplies ranging from 12
dozen clothes pins to two jeeps
are being taken along,, as the
group is required to furnish all
of their own supplies.
One of the major problems at
the moment is the heating of the
main' house and dormitory of the
station, according to Prof. Hall. In
Japan houses are heated through
small metal braziers in each room,
and the entire family huddles
around those to keep warm, he
said.
.* * *
ELECTRICITY is rationed in
Japan so the group is planning to
bring their own oil heaters. The
oil will be delivered through a con-
tract with an oil company, Prof.
Hall explained.
The people of Japan are very
enthusiastic with plans for the
research center, he said. The
Center for Japanese Studies has
been receiving letters from all
parts of Japan offering any help
needed. The scientists around
Okayama have formed a, society
to aid the group once it starts
operating.
Prof. Hall emphasized again the
purposes of establishing such a
station in Japan. "The first func-
tion is to know everything about
Japan," he said.
"TO DO THIS, we are training
a limited number of specialists on
Japan."'
But every graduate student,
he continued, must first take his
work in some department of the
University such as economics or
political science.
The second function of the field
branch will be to-get the inter-
disciplinary approach to the ma-
jor problems, Prof. Hall said. The
homogeneous Inland sea region
will be used for datum.
Interdisciplinary teams will
study various representative vil-
lages, towns and cities and learn
everything they can about the
structure of Japanese society, he
explained. Each research worker
will then study some specific prob-
lem of the impact of Western cul-
ture on the people of the region
and check his findings with other
parts of Japan.

Sportsmen

In WAA, IM
Play in League
Tournaments
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
sixth and last in a series of articles
to acquaint students with some of
the influential organizations on
campusaand how members and of-
ficers are chosen.)
By PETER HOTTON
Campus sportsmen have their
places in campus affairs, and two
organizations give the "non-pro-
fessionals" a chance to shine in
many sports.
For the men it is the Intramural
Program managers' staff, which
handles, some 25 non-varsity
sports including every sport -from
pool to checkers five days a week.
* *.*
WOMEN'S ATHLETIC Associa-
tion handles sports ranging from
modern dance to lacrosse, for the
feminine members of the Univer-
sihy.
The Intramural Staff includes
six graduate assistants, two
senior managers and six junior
managers, who supervise and
schedule all games in eight
different leagues participating
in the program.
Each -League, including resi-
dence hall, fraternity, faculty, in-
dependent, professional fratern-
ity, all-campus, International Cen-
ter and co-recreational, plays
through the season and then en-
ters a league tqurnament, which
pi ocuces a final winner.
ANY STUDENT can join a team
in any sport of his organization,
as long as the povrs-that-be
think he's good, and he usually
stays on if he can keep on his
feet.
The six graduate assistants
have sole responsibility for at
least one league or activity, to
see that it runs efficiently and
that it wins out, if possible.
Junior managers are trained to
help keep the program running
smoothly, working up to manager-
ships of complete tourneys, until
they are ready for the two senior
manager's positions, who have
charge of the entire setup under
the guidance of two University
staff men who act as program head
and assistant.
Staff positions are open to men
who are interested in athletics.
Junior managers and -graduate
assistants are chosen by the pre-
ceding board of managers after
special interviews. The two senior
managers are chosen the same
way from the six junior staffers.
Women's Athletics.. .
Women's Athletic Association is
organized to accomodate 20 sports,
interhouse in three sports, Michi-
;ras, Tennis Ball and Lantern
Night.
Women's sports teams n~ay
across sorority and independent
lines instead of strictly within
their individual leagues as in the
men's program. Women's intra-
mural play comes in tournaments
in volleyball, basketball and soft-
ball.
* * *
WAA BOARD positions include
manager of each of the 20 sports
and a cabinet of 12 women rang-
ing from president to division
managers in sophomore, junior
and senior classes. Only seniors
can be president or vice-president.
Women are automatically mem-

hers of WAA on entering the Uni-
versity and eligible to volunteer
for positions on any team.
To get a post on the Board, a
woman must petition the Board
seniors and be interviewed for an
appointment. Procedure is the
same as for League appointments.

'U' Broadcasting Service
Marks 25th Anniversary
Two thousand mice were the first listening audience of the
University Broadcasting Service, which will celebrate its silver an-
niversary tomorrow. {
The first Broadcasting Service studio was a long narrow room
on the top floor of University Hall: In the adjoining room. 2,000 mice
were harbored for use in cancer research.
* * * *
TO OVERCOME the bad accoustics, Prof. Waldo Abbot, director}
of the Service since its inception, devised a tent made of artists' drop
clothes.

'EAST LANSING-(/P)-Michi-
gan State College yesterday asked
the Legislature for an appropria-
tion of $9,505,830 for the 1950-51
fiscal year.
The requested appropriation is
an increase of $1,005,338 over the
$8,500,492 asked from the Legisla-
ture last year.
Karl H. McDonel, Board secre-
tary said at least $510,340 will be
required to offset the drop in
student fees.

"There were times when we wondered whether or not our
program was on the air, but we never had any doubts about
those mice as we sat in the airless tent," Prof. Abbot recalled.
The station used to specialize in one hour programs alternating
four minutes by faculty members with musical selections.
* * * *
AT THAT TIME, with radio in its infancy, speakers and mu-.+
sicians could not conceive of the great speed of radio waves, Prof.
Abbot noted.
"Faculty members would often run from the tent studio
to a receiving set in an adjoining room after they haui given
their talk with the idea of hearing their words come back over the
radio after they had been transmitted," he added
In 1928 the studio was moved to Morris Hall, which has since
been torn down to make way for the Administration Building.
AT ABOUT that time WJR remodeled its studios and gave all
its old junk to the University. A group of industrious students took
this old equipment to pieces, put it together again and came up with
a frequency modulation set and a control room.
In 1948 after several years of University discussion and war-
time restrictions the frequency modulation station WUOM was
established and went on the air.

Final Gulai tiesTryouts Today
Final tryouts for the Gulantics review, scheduled for late next
month, will be held between 1 and 4 p.m. today in Rm. 3G at the
Union.
The turnout for previous tryouts has been very disappointing, r ,
according to Glee Club vice-president, Phil Steding. The Glee Club
is one of the organizations which originated the Gulantics last year
as an outlet for student talent.
Prizes of $100, $75 and $25 will be awarded to the first, second.
and third place winners, judged by audience appreciation when the
final show is staged in Hill Auditorium.
Steding called for all kinds of acts - not necessarily musical.
