Heady Sees Little Action in Legislature

actically no positive action
come out of the State Legis-
re during its forthcoming
on, Prof. C. Ferrel Heady of
political science department
icted yesterday.
-of. Heady- made the rather
nous prediction that a po-
al stalemate would result in
Migan because of the legis-
re's hostile attitude towards
reelected Gov. Williams.

THE POLITICAL scientist's
nalysis of the state situation fol-
wed the recent victory state-
ent of Gov. Williams: "And now,
Republicans and Democrats, we
ust get down to work for the
est interests of the State, the
ation, and its people."
But Prof. Heady saw little
hance for the fulfilihent of
Williams' appeal. To the con-
rary, he proposed that Wil-
iams was in for a "hard time."
"Gov. Williams' slim victory ov-
their candidate Kelly has per-
rbed Republicans," he explain-
s. "And certainly, Williams' re-
arks about GOP motives in re-
ird to the recount won't help
rongly represented in both the
ouse and Senate, and have the

resulted in which the Republicans
will be able to stalemate any
Democrat proposal, while the
Democrats will be able to counter
GOP measures with a veto that
can be held up, he explained.
Moreover, added to Williams'
woes is the fact that he will face
seven Republicans, including the
lieutenant governor on the Ad-
ministrative Board.

AS A RESULT of the situation,
probably nothing will be accom-
plished other than political man-
euvering on both sides to get the
upper hand and pave the way for
the 1952 elections.
At any rate, Gov. Williams'
victory has put him in a position
to capture the job of United
States Senator from Michigan in
1952, he added.
"This is significant because
Williams, if he runs, will prob-
ably not have to face the ailing
Senator Vandenberg in the next
elections," he concluded.

'On the other hand, at least
in the House, the Democrats
have a strength of just over
one-third-enough to uphold a
gubernatorial veto."


Gov. Williams, with the aid of
his colleagues in the House, will
be able to block any Republican
move he deems distasteful, Prof.
Heady asserted.
Thus, a strange situation has

Nlan Varied Activities

Having exhausted their ammu-
tion and themselves during the
cent election campaigns, the
)ung Democrats and the Young
epublicans are retiring to the
lelines until next semester be-
re they begin to reload their po-
.ical guns.
In the meantime the political
asts on campus will be fired for
e most part by the Young Pro-
essives and the non-partisan
litical organizations.
THE YPs are currently occupy-
g themselves with the produc-
on of a play called "They Shall
>t Die." The play, which deals
ith the Jim Crow problem and
e famed Scottsboro Case in par-
cular, will be presented early
xt semester.
However, YP is now concern-
ng itself mainly with peace ac-
ivity, according to its presi-
lent, Gordon MacDougall, '52.
"We have and will continue to
ork for peace by holding dis-
ssions, distributing leaflets, and
nding petitions to important
iblic officials.
"Because of the Korean situa-

ago. But, Jean Klerman, '52, pre-
sident of UWF, asserts that a
campaign is under way to reinter-
est students in the organization
and to make them aware of the
urgent need for world federation.
When the Young Democrats re-
sume operations they will begin
laying the groundwork for cam-
paigns in future elections. A po-
litical action conference is being
planned for next semester, ac-
cording to president Frances
Wagman, '52L, at which outside

Holiday Cards
Christmas cards, one of the
biggest sellers of the holiday sea-
son, have once again come into
their own and are dominating
the sales of bookstores and card-
stores alike.
On the average, nickel cards
sell much better than the more
expensive ones, but stores have
found that most students buy a
more expensive card for members
of the family.

MOST POPULAR among the
types of cards sold are the cards
with prints by individual artists
such as Winston Churchill or
Norman Rockwell, and greeting
cards with the Michigan seal.
Following the trend of recent
years, few sentimental and reli-
gious cards are sold, especially to
According to one local retailer,
students avoid trite cliches and
prefer the simple presentation us-
ually found on modern cards.
