In addition to his waddling

i gon Thief
Leaves Prints
The thief who stole $1850 from
Trigon fraternity Monday night
left several clear fingerprints be-
hind him, a fraternity spokesman
revealed last night.
Police officers found the prints
on an envelope which contained
several of the fraternity's keys.

Trigon members said thAt the
burglar was probably looking for
the key to the strongbox in which
the money was kept.
The thief's actual take is much
less than the fraternity's $1850 loss
since all of the money but $200
was in unnegotiable checks.

SL Project To Fly
UN FlagRejected
The Student Legislature has
scrapped all plans for flying the
United Nations flag on the Uni-
versity campus.
Kenneth Babcock, '53, chairman
of the SL project reported yester-
day that the-Regents had turned
down the committee's proposal
that twin flagpoles be placed on
the Administration Building for
the U.S. and UN flags.
The Regents rejected the idea
because of a recent state legislature
vote against flying the UN flag.
Previously the committee had
sought the use of flagpoles atop
the Union and the Law School but
were unsuccessful.

(Editor's note: This is the second
of a series of articles on coopera-
tive living at the University. They-
are being run in connection with
National Cooperative Week, which
is now in progress.)
The economies of cooperative liv-
ing have enabled many students to
finish their college educations.
For as little as $8.10 a week; co-
op residents can obtain room,
board and maintenance of their
living quarters.
This low cost has been made
possible by a group purchasing

do an equal amount of work every

Prof. Suggests
Fivefold Plan
For Freedom
Declaring that "the freedoms
which support our democracy may
suffer irreparable damage during
a period of preparation for war,"
Prof. Glare C. Griffin, of the busi-
ness administration school, yes-
terday proposed a five point plan
for , maintenance of those free-
In his address to the final ses-
sion of the Adult Education In-
stitute Griffin pointed out that
the decade or two of internation-
al tension which we now face will
probably bring us a demand for
more regimentation and restric-
tion of free enterprise.
His plan for avoiding this in-
cluded employing a free market
system as much as possible, avoid-
ing centralization of power in
Washington, and keeping neces-
sary controls in general rather
than specific terms.
Griffin also recommended over-
hauling the anti-trust laws, and
vigorous prosecution of combina-
tions in restraint of trade.
Finally, he said that secrecy
about government policies and
scientific discoveries should be
kept at a minimum.
T eleki To Lecture
Prof. Geza Teleki of the geo-
graphy department at the Univer-
sity of Virginia will speak on "The
Iron Curtain Countries of Eastern
Europe" at 4:10 p.m. today in the
Kellogg Auditorium.
Prof. Teleki is one of the lead-
ing geographers of Eastern Europe
and served as Minister of Educa-
tion in Hungary. He is here under
the auspices' of the geography de-

junction with the Ann Arbor Co-
operative Society. Their meat is
purchased at wholesale prices di-
rectly from the packers and is
frozen until needed by the houses.
Other items are purchased at dis-
counts from Ann Arbor merchants.
As his share in the operations
of the co-op house, each resident
does between four-and-a-half
and five hours 'work each week.
This includes cleaning the house,
cooking meals and caring for the
Because co-ops hire no employes,
they must cultivate their own staff
of chefs. In his first semester, a
worker is assigned to "veg prep,"
the co-op variety of K.P. While
on this detail, he witnesses the
methods and techniques of the ex-
perienced cooks.
* * *
IF HE SHOWS promise in the
kitchen, he is advanced to second
cook, then to first cook, and finally'

to Sunday cook, the highest step
in the scale.
Other plans are also used to
keep down expenses. During the
past year men from Robert Owen
House trooped over to Muriel
Lester House to wash walls, while
the Lester women sewed curtains
for the Owen House.
Two or three times each semes-
ter, each house has a work holiday.
On these occasions the whole
house membership pitches in 'on
some large project such as plaster-
ing walls or painting a room.
Not only are small jobs like
cooking and caring for a house
mastered, but also broader and
more valuable type of experience
is gained from co-op living. By
planning expenses and assigning
jobs, co-oppers prepare themselves
in a realistic way for the days
when they will be living in their
own homes.
(Tomorrow: educational and social
advantages of co-ops.)

Will Present
Cinema-goers will get a chance
to see Grandmother Marlene Die-
trich in her prime at the SL Cine-
ma Guild's showing of the German
film classic "The Blue Angel" at
7:30 and 9:30 p.m. today and to-
morrow in Hill Auditorium.
Produced in the early thirties in
Germany, the film swept the con-
tinent and later America. Recent-
ly it has been reissued with
lish subtitles and has had succes -
ful showings in New York, Chi-
cago, and Detroit, according to
Richard Kraus, Grad., Cinema
Guild manager.
The film means Hollywood suc-
cess for both the fabulous Mar-
lene and the film's director, Josef
von Sternberg. The male lead,
Emil Jannings, had previously won
the first academy award for his
part in "The Way of All Flesh."
After the public had taken one
gander at Miss Dietieh as Lola
Lola and heard the voice which as
one critic carefully noted, "ap-
peals not so much to the ears as
to the blood pressure," Blue Angel
night clubs sprang up from Vienna
to Valparaiso.
The film has been described as
a study in degradation. Kraus ad-
vised the public to queue up early.
