EMBOSOGRAPH-Union student staffmen complete the job of
stamping out a sign on an embosograph. Elsewhere in the build-
ing, decorations are going up and the stage is being set for a bi-
zarre afternoon of entertainment-the Union's gala annual open
Union Open House Program
1o Offer Varied Activities
(Continued from Page 1)
Elsewhere in the building, the Michifish's cavorting mermaids
illf go through their intricate routine. And for those who prefer
etual sports competition, Union tournament finals will be going on.
.fter a long series of eliminations, the semi-finalists in billiards,
ool, ping-pong and bowling will play-off to determine the champion
1 each event.
WITH THE ART KING COMBO providing the music, the north
)unge will be the scene of a dance. Being a mixer, lone students will
e able to take part. Refreshments served there will consist of dough-
uts and cokes.
Long noted for its adherence to traditions, the Union in its
open house will scrap several of them. Not only will coeds be
allowed to enter through the front door, but the tower will be
open and JGP will present a preview of their coming show.
The Union tower has seldom been available for student use.
ight floors up on the Union's roof, it was once used as a water
ewer by the city. From this vantage point, the entire campus, city
nd surrounding country can be seen.
To complete the day, when JGP presents a preview of its planned
how, "It's the Pay-Off," it will mark the first time a League produc-
on has been presented at the Union.
The show will be given in the Ballroom and will alternate with
Previtws of Progress."
And, by the way, everything will be free.

Although its primary concern
may be with legislating, the Stu-
dent Legislature is also an infor-
mation spreading, opinion gather-
ing group.
The SL Speaker's Bureau, in its
second semester of operation, is
currently sending as many as 20
legislators a week to speak and
lead discussions on campus prob-
lems at various housing units.
Resignation of
McCabe Seen
As "Strange'
The resignation of Thomas Mc-
Cabe and immediate appointment
of William Martin as chairman
of the Federal Reserve Board was
viewed as "strange news" yester-
day by Prof. Richard Musgrave
of the economics department.
He termed the move "strange"
because it came right on the heels
of an announcement of perfect
accord between the Treasury and
the Board.
Though he felt that the move
appears to be a victory for the
Treasury point of view, Prof. Mus-
grave added that this is mere-
ly conjecture, as no definite ap-
praisal can as yet be made.
Martin, who was named to the
position on Wednesday, after Mc-
Cabe's resignation, had formerly
served as head of the New York
Stock Exchange and subsequently
as an Assistant Secretary of the
Treasury in charge of internation-
al finance.

.SL CONSIDERS the Bureau'as
one of the best means at its dis--
posal for achieving closer contact
between legislators and students,
"Through the Bureau the
Legislature hopes to be able to
better familiarize students on
campus problems by having
them hear legislators who are
working on the specific prob-
lems, according to Pat Doyle,
'52, the Bureau's chairman.
Not only do students become
better informed because of the
Bureau's services, but the legisla-
tors also profit by leading dis-
cussions and finding out first-
hand what student opinion is,
Miss Doyle said.,
"HOWEVER, even though we
are now receiving more requests
than at any time since the Bu-
reau's inception, SL is aiming at
filling requests for at least twice
as many speakers."
"We have 45 legislators avail-
able to explain to students what SL
is doing and we would like each
legislator to be able to have one
speaking assignment a week."
"Groups desiring to find out
more about what is going on
around campus should feel free
to call the SL Building at 34732
.and book a speaker."
Regents Race
May Hike Vote
City Clerk Fred J. Looker yes-
terday predicted an average spring
election turnout of some 4,000
voters for the April 2 balloting.
"We may have as many as 4,500
voting, however, because of local
interest in the Board of Regents
race," Looker said.
He noted that the controversy
over future non-partisan elections
may turnout a big partisan vote.
Looker added there was no rush
to register for the ballotting.
"About 90 people signed up-all
on the last day of registration.
This is about normal."
