Prof. Pollock Rumored as
Vandenberg's Successor

Rumors spread through Wash-
ington yesterday that Prof. James
K. Pollock, chairman of the politi-
cal science department, may re-
place the ailing Arthur H. Van-
denberg as Senator from Michi-
The rumor started when Wil-
liam F. Pyper, Washington cor-
respondent for the Michigan Booth
chain, reported that "Washing-
ton and Lansing gossip wolves are
- insisting that Vandenberg is about
to resign."
The "gossip wolves" weren't
identified, but among their spec-
ulations as a strong successor to
Vandenberg was the name of Prof.
James K. Pollock.

HOWEVER, Prof. Pollock greet-
ed the rumor with a smile and a

Pollock Urges
A constitutional amendment
modifying the exclusive right of
the Senate to ratify or reject in-
ternational treaties has been
urged by Prof. James K. Pollock,
chairman of the political science
In his valedictory address to
the 46th annual meeting of the
American Political Science Asso-
ciation Dec. 28, Prof. Pollock, re-
tiring president of the group, said
that a change was necessary be-
cause of the requirements of
present day international life.
* * *
"APPROVAL OF international
commitments should be by a
majority vote of both houses of
Congress rather than by the two-
thirds vote of the Senate pro-
vided by the Constitution," he as-
As to President Truman's con-
cern over the marked decline in
the percentage of eligible voters
who actually vote, Prof. Pollock
replied to the President that
members of the association would
begin at once to draft recom-
mendations on the subject.
More than, 1,000 delegates at
the meetings also heard Dr.-
Ralph J. Bunche, chairman of
the UN Trustee Council, advo-
cate that the military strength
of the UN be built up "to provide
an overwhelming force to crush
aggression in the future."

"no comment" in .his office yes-
The former Hoover Commis-
sion member declined to discuss
the report that if Vandenberg
should resign before the end of
his present term, Gov. G. Men-
nen Williams would appoint him
to fill the vacant ppsition.
Pyper had said: "Sen. Vanden-
berg would refuse to resign and
give his seat to a Democratic ap-
pointee. . . . However, some be-
lieve he might be willing to take
such action as would assure that
his policies and principles would
be followed vigorously for the rest
of his term.'
"One man who might offer such
assurance is Prof. Ponlocia.' *
* * *
THIS IS based on the fact that
Sen. Vandenberg appointed Prof.
Pollock to the Hoover Commis-
sion, which studied the reorgani-
zation of the executive branch of
the Federal Government.
Prof. Pollock has the added
distinction of being the present
president of the American Po-.
litical Science Association, al-
though he is now retiring. He
also has served as political ad-
visor to military government and
the U.S. high commissioner for
occupied Germany.
Moreover, the political scientist
was chairman of the Civil Ser-
vice Commission, which drafted
Michigan's first civil service law,
and he sparked the Michigan Me-
rit System Association, which
later saw that the present civil
service statute was permanently

coeds from Pasadena City College and John Muir College.
Frolic, alales Mix Over Vacation


Frolic mingled with tragedy
this Christmas as the University
community spread itself over the
Students, professors and towns-
people whiled away their time in
traditional fashion, with some
traveling to far-off places and
others just having a good time..
Several deaths threw a pall over
otherwise gay activities.
WHILE MANY students headed
for Pasadena, others aquired tans
in Florida and one student, Jef-
fery Leigh, '52, flew to England
to visit his family.
Most of those who went to
California reported having some


"wonderful experiences," but
others were less fortunate.
Daily staffer Vern Emerson, '52,
was locked in an Oklahoma jail
for six hours while thumbing his
way home. Several murders had
been committed nearby and the
local authorities were rounding
up all hitch-hikers.
Another University student got
stranded while climbing a small
mountain near Pasadena and had
to be helped down by a rescue
force. Earlier, Ann Arbor resi-
dent Warren Robert Poor, 30
years old, was killed in an auto
accident while en route to Cali-
fornia. He was the son of Vin-
cent C. Poor, associate professor
emeritus of mathematics. '
ELSEWHERE throughout the
nation, University students were
throwing parties, checking their
draft status or marrying.
Many coeds returned to cam-
pus yesterday with diamonds on
their fingers. One student, who
didn't quite reach this stage,
said she spent part of the holi-
days trying to placate six male
friends who visited her individ-
ually, unexpectedly and simul-
In Ann Arbor, things weren't
so rosy as elsewhere. On Dec. 28
the town out-froze traditional
Michigan "refrigerators" such as
Cadillac to become the coldest
spot in the state. The December
average temperature here was the
lowest on record.

Lyal A. Davidson, first comman-
der of the Naval Reserve Officers'

Training Corps at the University,
died at the Naval Hospital in
Bethesda, Md. The 64-year-old
veteran Navy officer had been ill
for a year.
As the old year bowed out a
21-year-old Dexter housewife
was admitted to University Hos-
pital with polio. Her case'
brought Washtenaw county's
polio total for 1950 to 64 cases
-an all-time record for any
single year.
The county's first 1951 traffic
fatality occurred Jan. 1, the vic-
tim being a 23-year-old Univer-
sity student. The student, Roland
J. Galloway, '51, of Battle Creek,
was fatally injured and four oth-
ers were hurt in a two-car crash
on M-17 at US-23.
Another student traffic death
was recorded Sunday when Al-
bert Zieman, '53, of Saginaw, was
killed in an auto accident near
his home.

AS THOUSANDS of students
began to flock into Ann Arbor
late last week many looked back
on their vacations with mixed
feelings. Most had been pretty
much alone the final week when
friends from other schools had
returned to classes.
Some seemed happy to be back,
and undoubtedly the happiest
were those few who, like Ed Nit-
miec, '52E, had actually devoted
their two-week respite to study.
More typical was William G.
Warren, '52, who said he got tired
of the hometown, came back five
days early to write a term paper,
spent $15 for a room in the Union,
and then read magazines and saw

Adams Dies
Randolph G. Adams, director
of the University Clements Library
since 1923 died in University Hos-
pital January 4 of heart disease.
Adams was 58 years old.
An authority in the fields of
American history and library sci-
ence, Adams also served as di-
rector of the Franklin D. Roose-
velt Library at Hyde Park, N. Y.
ADAMS HAD achieved literary
recognition for several books and
articles about past and current
historical matters. Among these
are, "A History of American Fore-
ign Policy," "A Gateway to Ameri-
an History," and "Political Ideas
of the American Revolution."
He also was a member of the
advisory committee which as-
sisted Princeton University . in
editing and preparing for pub-
lication correspondance a n d
writings of Thomas Jefferson.
Adams received a bachelor of
arts degree from the University of
Pennsylvania in 19-20, and in 1938
was awarded a doctor of laws de-
gree from Albion College.
Before being appointed director
of Clements Library, he taught
history at the University of Penn-
sylvania, University of Chicago
and Trinity College.
One-Act Plays
To Be Staged
Student scene-designers a n d
set-builders started right to work
Sunday preparing the sets for the
second bill of onp-act plays to be
presented at 8 p.m. Thursday and
Friday, in the Lydia Mendelssohn
Tickets will be on sale from 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. tomorrow and from
10 a.m. until showtime Thursday
and Friday.
The bill includes two plays writ-
ten by University students, "Boke's
Friends" by J. Shelton Murphy,
'51 and "The Woods Are Still," by
Dan Waldron, '51. Also to be giv-
en are "Wurzel - Flummery," by
A. A. Milne and Edna St. Vincent
Millay's "Aria da Cape."
Flu Shots Urged
Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, direct-
or of Health Service, advised all
students yesterday, to immunize
themselves against influenza.
They may do this, according to
Dr. Forsythe, any day at the
Health Service for a nominal fee
of one dollar. Faculty members
and student wives may avail them-
selves of these services for $1.50.

The University will soon have
its own fire fighting brigade, ac-
cording to Prof. Arthur Bromage
of the political science depart-
ment, now serving as. Ann Arbor
Civil Defense Director.
The auxiliary force, according
Ackley Warns.
More Curbs T'o
.Follow Prices
Price controls must be consid-
ered as part of a package which
will also include controls over
production, distribution, wages,
and possibly manpower, Prof.
Gardner Ackley of the economics
department told members of the
Economics Club last night.
A program of price controls, if
undertaken, must eventually in-
clude regulation in all these re-
lated fields if it is to be effective,
he asserted.
* *
TO MAKE a success of the
stabilization enterprise, people
who are being forced to make
sacrifices must feel that others
are also being forced to give some-
thing up, he explained.
Prof. Ackley, for several years
associated with the Office of
Price Administration, felt that
a system of controls should be
considered only as a last-ditch
resort. First we should make
every effort to cut down the ex=
cessive demand by strong fiscal
measures, he said.
Substantially increased taxes
are possible, desirable, and neces-
sary. Secondly, significant cuts in
non-essential government spend-
ing can and must be made, he
But Prof. Ackley warned that it
probably would not be politically
feasible to take stern enough mea-
sures along these lines to com-
pletely absorb the increased de-
mand. So therefore he recom-
mended we get the administra-
tive machinery ready to impos'e
controls if it does become essen-
tial, as appears likely.
If any price controls are going
to work, the cooperation of the
public is essential, he emphasized.
"Such a program tends to be much
more effective in the beginning
than in later stages."
Prof. Ackley labelled President
Truman's present program of vol-
untary price controls as a "joke."
Perhaps there is some psycholog-
ical gain in preparing the country
for all-out controls, but it has
completely failed to have any 'ef-
fect on the price level.

to Prof. Bromage will berorganiz-
ed from University plant depart-
ment employes and,will take part
in the local civil defense program.
It will also protect University
buildings in case of an emergency.
PROF. BROMAGE said that
present University plans call for
a hose and a pumper team con-
sisting of three officers and eight
men, a ladder and ax team con-
sisting of three officers and ten
men and a special "utilities" team
made up of plant department elec-
tricians, plumbers and steamfit-
This force will be trained by the
Ann Arbor Fire Department.
In another aspect of civil
defense, Prof. Bromage said
that recruiting for the Ann Ar-
bor fire fighting force continues
to have "disappointing" results.
Only 16 persons are actively
participating in the program, al-
though a recruiting target of 100
was set.
Prof. Bromage also revealed
that the recruiting target for
auxiliary policemen for civil de-
fense has been upped from 50 to
100, in line with a recent boost
