Earlier yesterday the educa-

University economics depart-

in college enrollment as a re-

Prof. Harris also ventured that
wages would be high enough by

persons who now seek higher
education purely for purposes of
making more money.
The Conference will end today

The American style bicycle will
soon be a thing of the past on
campus-at least that's the the-
ory of one old-time bike expert.
Bennett French, who has been
selling and repairing two wheelers
for 16 years, noted that soon stu-
dents will be riding only the slim
framed English importations.

"NOT TOO LONG ago English
bicy&es were curiosities here, but
before long the bulky American
models will be the novelties," he
French pointed out that for
utility English bikes are hard
to beat. He explained that they
are lighter, narrower, have less
rolling friction and three speed
"The gears allow you to sit on
the seat where you belong; you
don't have to stand up to reach
the top of a hill."
Bicycles in this country are de-
signed for appearance more than
utility, French remarked. "Manu-
facturers have gotten to the point
where they hire fashion designers
to dream up colors such as Sum-
mer Cloud White and Luscious

MOST AMERICAN manufac-
turers are not too happy about
the English cycle invasion, but so
far they haven't done much about
it. Only one company has put out
a bike that equals the English
variety, French said, and that one
is priced way above the importa-

Bringing 50 displaced persons to
Ann Arbor, the plan of the Uni-
versity student DP committee, will
make this campus the first in the
country to handle any sort of DP
program on such a large scale.
"According to the New York of-
fice of the World Student Service
Fund, through which the plan
would be carried, university com-
munities have been able to spon-
sor a few displaced persons, but
never such a large group," explain-

"THE OFFICE also hopes to be
able to use the experience of this
campus as an example to the whole
country in organizing such pro-

fact that all students don't ride
bikes (he estimated that one1
out of four students own one
of the two wheeled vehicles).
"It seems only time conserving
to ride rather than walk, and I
feel any student who figures out
ways of saving time will eventual-
ly succeed at anything."
As for the diagonal traffic prob-
lem that would result from 100
per cent bike ownership, French
remarked that Smith College has

AT THE University, students do
most of their bike buying when
they return to school in the fall.
But many students purchase them
as soon as nice weather begins.
"The more timid and less
rugged individuals store their
bicycles in the winter, but the
heartier keep them going year
round," French said.
At any time the biggest amount
of repair work comes from punc-
But although most students pre-
fer to let a repairman get greasy

there are a few who like to tinker
themselves. And a good many of
these are women-"some of whom

claims he is set for 10 to 15 years.

The Ann Arbor City Council will
