New Eligibility System
Truman A fter Shooting
The new eligibility system, in-
augurated this semester, seems to
be working, thanks to the cooper-
ation of the general student
Only thirty students have been
called into the Office of Student
Affairs to give explanations for
their participation in activities
which require eligibility.
And of this number only seven
students have been asked to re-
sign from positions for which they

UNDER THE new ruling the
student must accept the complete
responsibility for his non-partici-
pation in extra-curricular activi-
ties if he is on either academic,
discipline or social probation.
Formerly, eligibility c a r d s
were issued by the Office of
Student Affairs to those quali-
fied. Now eligibility cards are
no longer required.
But the Student Affairs Office
still maintains a careful check of
students participating in campus
activities requiring eligibility.
PARTICIPATION lists are sub-
mitted to the office by the mana-
gers and chairmen of all student
activities and projects.
Chairmen and managers no
longer assume the responsibility
of checking the eligibility sta-
tus of the people with whom
they work. They fulfill their
Tickets for Lowell Thomas Jr.'s
lecture, "Inside Forbidden Tibet"
to be given Tuesday, are on sale at
the Hill Auditorium box-office.
Thomas, the last American ,to
enter now-contested Tibet, saw the
first infiltration of Reds into the
Himilayan 'hot spot.'
Both Thomas and his father
have been interviewed recently for
their opinions on the Tibetan in-
vasion, and have been able to give
first-hand information on condi-
tions because of what they learned
on their journey.
Their report was extraordinarily
valuable because of an audience
they had with the sacred Dalai
Lama in the forbidden city of
Lhasa. At that time, Tibetans were
beginning to realize that their
completely isolated position might
be endangered by Communist-con-
Tickets for Thomas, Jr. who will
speak at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday in Hill
Auditorium are priced at $1.50,
$1.20 and $.60, and the box-office

Seen In City
Heavy registration in Washte-
paw County indicates a possible
record vote for an off-year elec-
tion, according to County Clerk
Louella M. Smith.
County registration was estimat-
ed at 56,000, against an estimated
total of 55,000 registrants in 1948,
a presidential election year.
MRS. SMITH said indications
were that the expected vote would
at .least equal that of 1948, when
38,500 ballots were cast in Wash-
tenaw County. That would be 7,000
votes better than 1946, the last
City Clerk Fred T. Looker es-
timated that this year's regis-
tration of 20,219 would produce
about 12,000 voters. Ann Arbor
registration figures have varied
little during the past few elec-
tions and Looker said that the
total number of ballots would
probably fall somewhere between
the 1948 vote of about 14,000 and
the 1946 vote of about 11,000.
-Ypsilanti city officials looked
forward to a possible record-break-
ing vote there on Tuesday. Regis-
tration figures topped those of
1948 by more than 2,000, resulting
in a total of 9,954 for 1950.
Three Washtenaw townships re-
ported substantial registration in-
creases. These increases, occuring
principally ;in . those townships
where Willow Village and Pitts-
Village are located; were partly as-
cribed to the fact that registration
rolls are now being cleared every
two years instead of every four, as
was formerly done.

The cadets will remain on the
campus overnight, leaving Sunday.
While here, they will have confer-
ences with University students

Overnight, they will be quartered
with ROTC students in various
dormitory and fraternity houses.
The group will inspect Air Force
ROTC training facilities on the
campus, tour the campus, discuss
training problems with Air Force
cadets, and attend the Michigan-
Illinois football game in a group.
Their visit will be highlighted by
a dinner at the Union.

"X-ray beams passing through
the body's master gland, the pi-
tuitary, have been responsible for
saving the sight of eight out of 11
patients," Dr. William H. Beier-
waltes, professor of internal medi-
cine reported this week.
The eye-saving process was an-
nounced before a meeting of the
American Federation of Clinical
Research. Itdwas the result of a
five year study of patients suffer-
ing from "bulging of the eyes"
known as "malignant exophthal-
"THE DISEASE is believed to
be caused by a thyroid stimulating
hormone produced in the pituitary
gland, situated in the brain behind
the eyes," Dr. Beierwaltes said. He
explained how the hormone ap-
parently affects the eye-socket tis-
sue causing swelling and fluid
formation. "The result is an ab-
normal protrusion of the eye-
balls," he continued.
"Bulging of the eyes is accom-
panied by swelling of the eye-
lids, excessive tearing, burning
sensation and loss of ability to
close the eyes," Dr. Beierwaltes
said. "In extreme cases," he as-
serted, "this leads to inflamma-
tion throughout the eyes neces-
sitating their surgical removal."
"Now with the new x-ray tech-
nique," Dr. Beierwaltes added, "we
are able to relieve many of the
disagreeable symptoms of malig-
nant exophthalmos and in a large
majority of the cases, save the eye-
sight of the patient."
"Nine of the patients were given
one-tenth of a gram of dried thy-
roid compound each day for an
average control period of 10
months, but protrusion progress
was unchecked," he remarked. Dr.
Beierwaltes explained that the
thyroid was given to stop the pi-
tuitary's production of the "thy-
roid stimulating hormone," be-
lieved to be the cause of the

The proposal was submitted to

of approximately 70 well-known
* * *
PROFESSORS Richard G. Rod-
key and William A. Paton of the
Business Administration school,
who are members on the commit-
tee, signed the resolution. Profes-
sor Leonard L. Watkins of the
economics department, who is also
on the committee, did not, how-
ever, sign this resolution.
The committee was organized
in 1933, shortly after the con-
troversial devaluation of the
dollar and departure from the
gold standard. It's objective has
always been to fight inflation
and restore sound currency, ac-
cording to Prof. Paton.
The committee submitted a
three point program calling for a
general tightening of government
expenditures for non-defense pur-
poses, restoration of a currency
redeemable in gold, and mainten-
ance of the present $35 per ounce
gold exchange rate.
PROF. PATON expressed great
concern over the continuing de-
cline of the dollar. "Those who try
to save through purchasing E
bonds, buying life insurance, or
keeping savings accounts will find
that in terms of actual value,
they end up with less than they
started with," he pointed out.-
Prof. Rodkey explained that a
return to a gold standard would
restore public confidence in the
dollar and tend to place a limit
on the extent to which its value

Offers Hope for
The results Italian Director De
Sica obtained in "Bicycle Thief"
'currently being shown at Hill Aud-
itorium, offer great hope to small
independent movie producers and
even amateur groups who are in-
terested in getting into the pic-
ture business, Dick Kraus, mana-
ger of the Student Legislature's
Cinema Guild, said last night.
Produced on a shoe-string bud-
get, the picture uses a completely
natural background and amateur
actors. "Bicycle Thief's" star was
paid $1,000. It demonstrates what
can be done with a good screen
story, a good director and a natu-
"IT IS entirely conceivable that
such a movie could be produced
right here in Ann Arbor," Kraus
In fact, last year a group of stu-
dents and faculty members did
make a movie, "The Well-Wrought
Ern," which had some very good
moments in it, he asserted. With
a little more money, and better
equipment the group could pos-
sibly have produced a good film.
At any rate, De Sica took a logi-
cal approach to movie making. By
stressing the excellency of the
story fire, good direction next, and
the quality and experience of the
acting talent last, a good movie can
be inexpensively produced, Kraus
said. "Hollywood's approach-big-
name acting first, direction second,
and story third easily leads to gi-
gantic budgets and poor movies,"
