waste a lot of time on nonsense.
Defense and prosecution law-

in no way connected with the
substance of the case.

in long-winded disputes over the

AND YOU are struck not by the
fact that this trial has already
consumed so much time, but rath-

pace of the proceedings, anything
at all has been accomplished.
The case began last January
with a New York grand jury
indictment charging:
"That from on or about April 1,
1945, and continuously thereafter

liam Z. Foster, later excused from
the trial because of illness) did
conspire with each other and with
other persons . . . to organize the

to teach and advocate the over-
throw and destruction of the Unit-

IN SO DOING, the indictment

Adjustment To'U'Found
Difficult By Englishman
Geoffrey N. Leigh, an English student on campus, is having trouble
adjusting himself to American university life.
"In comparison to English girls I find American coeds much
more stimulating to talk with," Leigh said in a recent interview.

"THEY ARE VERY friendly, hospitable, and well-dressed." .. ..
Educational standards are higher in English universities
than at Michigan, according to Leigh. The University lacks the
scholarly atmosphere so appar-
ent at London University, he

Thirty-one University coeds, left
homeless when fire swept through
the league house in which they
were living on Sept. 24, have
moved back into their old rooms.
The house, located at 1805
Washtenaw Avenue, was gutted by
flames on the first floor, with
smoke and water also causing con-
siderable damage to the second
and third floor quarters.
Repairs were rushed through,
however, by the home owner, H.
W. Freeman, and the girls began
moving back from their tem-
porary domicile in the League
dormitory Sunday morning.
