Effect of Mobilization
On Fraternities Outlined

If a large number of University
students are called into the armed
forces, many fraternity houses will
be forced to close, Dean of Stu-
dents Erich Walter predicted yes-
Speaking before a meeting of
fraternity officers and alumni,
Dean Walter discussed the Univer-
sity's war mobilization plans.

IN OUTLINING how the Uni-
versity's possible change to a war
footing might affect fraternities,
Dean Walter explained that very
little young blood would be com-
ing into fraternity houses in the
event of a war.
On this basis, many of the
fraternities would be closed, and
action would have to be taken
to protect fraternity property
until the crisis is over and nor-
mal conditions permitted the
fraternities to resume their func-
tions, he said.'
"The University will stand ready
to be of any help to the fraterni-
ties in protecting their property
and valuables."
The Dean offered the frater-
nities safe-keeping for their valu-
ables, such as records, robes, and
silver, in the event that the houses
are closed-by a war.

AS TO THE use of unoccupied
fraternity houses, Dean Walter
suggested that the University andy

* * *
the Army and Navy might step in
and contract for their use.

"These houses, as in the Sec-
ond World War, might be used
to house military personnel and
civilians," he said.
However, he added that there
was no definite information as to
the government's intentions of
moving in.
"But we're waiting and ready to
meet these problems in case an
immediate crisis shows itself," he

nite picture of their position, fog,
haze, rumor and indecision will
decrease and morale will improve,"
he asserted.

MEANWHAtE, the student body
appears to be waiting quietly. Di-
rect campus reaction to the world
situation has been rather negligi-
ble, or at most exagerated.
Approximately ten women out
of a total of 5,004 have dropped
out of school in order to marry
before their spouses don uni-
forms, according to Dean of
Women Deborah Bacon,
While 434 students have left
school this semester, only one
quarter of them have dropped out
for reasons directly traceable to
the world situation, Dean of Stu-
dents Erich A. Walter said.

RELIGIOUS advisers and aca-
demic counselors have noted only
a small increase in the number of
students calling on them for help,
according to Prof. Arthur Van Du-
ren, chairman of academic coun-
Prof. Van Duren felt that the
full impact wouldn't hit his di-
vision until next year, at which
time many students. will want
to get their University status
clarified before they enter the
armed forces.
It seemed clear that most stu-
dents were looking beyond Ann

wers, for theirs was a nation-wide
problem. Few seemed concerned
about local attempts to boost their
A LANE HALL discussion of the
morale question Thursday evening
was attended by a meager 16 stu-
dents, most of whom were leaders
of interested religious groups.
Yesterday, an informal meeting
called by Dean Walter to discuss
the effect of war on fraternitiesj
drew a relatively small response.
Just 23 out of some 40 fraternities
sent undergraduate representa-
tives to the meeting, and only 20
of them sent alumni members.
Earlier this week, women stu-
dents almost completely ignored a
WAC recruiting attempt on cam-
-pus. Seven students were all that
showed any interest whatsoever.
'Lucrece' Tryouts
Tryouts for the Inter-Arts Un-
ion production, "Rape of Lu-
crece," will be held at 7:30 p.m.
today in Rm. ABC of the League.
The tragedy will be presented
Feb. 9 and 10, the J-Hop weekend.

Approximately 60 students and
members of the faculty gathered
in Lane Hall yesterday to discuss
various policies aimed at main-
taining peace and to plan activi-
ties for the University communi-
ty that might have a beneficial
effect on the world situation.
Besides an interchange of ideas
on how wars may be prevented,
the main product of the Peace
Conference was the creation of an
executive committee to form a
b r o a d preliminary ideological
statement to be discussed at a sec-
ond all campus conference.

a non-partisan meeting which
would plan activities such as pub-
lic meetings, movies and publica-
tions in the interests of peace.
Nominated to the executive

committee, which will plan the fu-
ture conference are: Ralph Spiel-
man of the sociology departmengt,
Chandler Davis of the mathe-
matics department, Edward Voss,
Grad, Nat Berlow, Grad, John
Morris, Grad., Phyl Morris, '52,
Myron Wahls, '54, Henry Jarecki,
'52 and Bill Symon.
The major part of yesterday's
conference was devoted to an ex-
change of ideas in informal dis-
cussion groups.
The conference was keynoted by
an address by Dean Hayward
Keniston of the literary college
who asserted that although the
nation is in a state of national
emergency, the die is not yet cast
as to whether there must be total

Speech Clinic Patients To Sing
Carols on 'U' TV Hour Today


. :

.9!w .: .. "S.;::


A chorus of persons who are re-
learning how to speak will sing
Christmas carols on the Univer-
sity television show today.
The group is composed of 26
aphasic persons, who have lost
their original powers of speech
because of brain injuries, and who
are' currently being rehabilitated
at the University Speech Clinic.
Their singing will conclude the
hour TV show, which will begin
at 1 p.m. over WWJ-TV, Detroit.
OF THEIR GROUP, 14 are war
veterans. They come from all
parts of the country, and many
have been attending the clinic for
four and five years.
" Several have improved enough

to take University courses.
Others participate in trade
training programs, which are
set up by the clinic concurrent-
ly with the speech rehabilitation
therapy. Some are full time pa-
tients who spend 5 hours a day
for twelve weeks of the semes-
ter at the clinic.
The carol singing will be tele-
cast directly from the clinic, and
will demonstrate a part of the
training, program there.
"Singing is just one form of
therapy we use," Prof. Harlan
Bloomer, director of the clinic
explained. "It is easier for aphasic
persons to sing than to carry out
a conversation, and is a helpful
form of recreation."
Preceding the demonstration
Prof. Bloomer and clinic assistants
Marion Knight and Lillian' Bo-
land will discuss treatment of the
