City Student
Hits Militar,y
Requirement
Robert O. Winder, an, Ann Arbo:
High School senior, may not grad.
uate this June because of his re
fusal to take the school's require
military orientation program.
Claiming that the one-hour-a.
week lecture course is military in.
doctrination, the 17-year-old stu
dent feels he should not be foreed
to take it because he does not plai
to enter the Armed Forces.
School officials, however, do no
feel that his objections are reason-
able enough to warrant his being
excused from the course. Accord
ing to Nicholas Schreibr, princi
pal of the high school, only th
Board of Education can allow hin
to be graduated without it.
WINDER COULD be excuse
from the required course on pre-
sentation of a signed statemen
that he is a conscientious objector
or by indication that he had a
physical disability, Schreiber said
But Winder, in a letter given tc
S c h r e i b e r yesterday morning
pointed out that he is not what i
usually considered a conscientious
objector. The letter further stated2
"I say this because I refuse to
be held liable for the mistakes
society as a whole or our 'lead-
ers' in particular have made, are
making, and will probably con-
tinue to make."
Winder even considers the
course "too great a price to pay'
for a graduation diploma and ex-
pected future study at the Univer-
sity of Chicago.
* * *
CITY SUPERINTENDENT o
Schools Otto W. Haisley and
Schreiber both deny Winder's
charges of "indoctrination." Ac-
cording to Haisler, the course is
designed to help students in the se-
lection of their preferred career in
the military set-up by presenting
informative lectures and movies.
Among representatives of the
Draft Board, the Marine Corps
Naval Reserve Officers Training
Corps, and school officials, whc
have addressed the class to date
was Prof. Harold M. Dorr of the
political science department who
spoke at the second class meeting.
Fire Damages
Second Floor
of ]EarlyJail
Fire yesterday morning damaged
the second floor apartment of a
114 year old building at 627 N.
Main St.
The building, once the Washte-
naw County Jail, suffered only in-
terior damage as firemen succeed-
ed in confining the fire to the
apartment itself.
No one was injured in the blaze.
The owners of the apartment, Mr.
and Mrs. Cleve Johnson were at
work when the flames broke out at
8:45 arm. Even "Butch," the John-
son's dog, was carried to safety by
a fireman who delivered him into
the arms of anxious neighborhood
children.
Firemen tentatively listed the
cause of the blaze as an overheat-
ed coal stove in the apartment.
Post-Tribune

Misses Issue
The Washtenaw Post-Tribune,
Ann Arbor's only weekly newspa-
per, has temporarily beased pub-
lication, employes stated yesterday.
No copies were printed or dis-
tributed yesterday, the paper's
regular issue date.j
Future plans for the publication
are uncertain as both William A.
Lucking and Milford A. Boersma,
who have been operating the paper
as court-appointed receivers since
July, are now out of the city. Em-
ployes understood, however, that
the newspaper is for sale.
When the Post-Tribune went in-
to temporary receivership last
July, an Ann Arbor attorney an-
nounced that the paper had lost
money since January 1.

Red Featherj
Fund Drive
Extended
This week's wicked weather so
seriously hampered the local Com-
munity Chest campaign that offi-
cials have decided to extend it
another week.
Only 58.5 per cent of the quota
had been reached yesterday when
the drive was officially scheduled
to end. The campaigners had set
their eyes on a goal of $176,000.
Compaign director Gordon Mc-
Donald, claimed at yesterday's
luncheon that "the blizzard really
threw a stick into our plans, and
we've got a lot of work yet to do."
BY NOON yesterday only one di-
vision had reached its quota. The
St. Thomas School and St. Joseph's
Hospital group reported 148 per
cent of their goal realized, which
amounted to $3,347.50.
University employes remained
58.7 per cent short of their goal
with a total of $12,655.40 in so
far. University Hospital employes
trailed the entire field with only
31.3 per cent of their quota o
$14,600 pledged.
Eighteen local firms reported 100
per cent participation in the drive
to support the 15 Ann Arbor area
Red Feather organizations.
The residential district which
has reported only 50.5 of its quota
has been the most hampered of the
divisions due to the house-to-
house method of solicitation. But
Mrs. George Earlem the division's
chairman told the gathering,
"We're going over. No woman ever
puts a half-ironed. shirt in the
drawer."

DON'T BLAME JOE:
Fifield Explains Foreign Service Drop

By CAL. SAMBA
Sen. Joe McCarthy has had lit-
tle to do with the drop in appli-
cations for the Foreign Service-as
far as Prof. Russell Fifield is con-
cerned.
The political scientist said yes-
terday that the influence of Mc-
Carthy's "Communist-in-the-State
Department" accusations has been
exaggerated by the Foreign Serv-
ice. He referred to a recent New
York Times article bemoaning
"the lack of interest in the Serv-
ice."
PROF. FIFIELD, who is the
campus adviser to students inter-
ested in the diplomatic service,
cited five other reasons for the
lack of Foreign Service applicants:
1) The stiffness of the written
examinations and the vagueness

of the oral examinations have
caused almost all interested stu-
dents to look upon the Foreign
Service only as a possible career
and to plan their career on
something more definite.
2) The waiting list of successful
candidates for appointment in the
Foreign Service has served to deter
a number of students from taking
the written examinations. He
pointed out that one of the suc-
cessful candidates from this Uni-
versity recently waited about two
years before he was actually com-
missioned a Foreign Service offi-
cer.
3) Numerous other opportuni-
ties in the foreign field are now
open to the student interested
in international affairs. Intelli-
gence, economic, and informa-

tion work may be specifically
cited.
4) The departure of most of the
veterans has changed the student
personnel of the campus to the tra-
ditional prewar type of student.
There is not the same interest in
overseas areas as existed when the
campus was characterized by a
large veteran population.
5) At the present time the
draft is preventing students who
are non-veterans from making
plans for the future.
Last of all, Prof. Fifield cited the
influence of "McCarthyism" but
noted that it was not of major
importance. However, he added,
"It cannot be denied that students
have been somewhat impressed by
Senator McCarthy's viewpoints on
the Department of State."

Illustrate Indian Weadding at Festival

By MARGE SHEPHERD
Getting married in India is no
simple matter.
As illustrated last night at the
celebration of the annual Indian
Divali Festival by the India Stu-
dent's Association, the typical In-
dian marriage ceremony involves
a long series of prayers to the
gods, complex and ancient rituals,
ending in confused merriment.
The Festival of Lights, as Divali
is known, was celebrated this year
in the form of extracts from a

wedding ceremony, which often
lasts four days in India.
* * *
TO A RUNNING commentary
read by B. V. Govinderaj, Grad.,
the bride, Usha Jhaveri, a special
student at Ypsilanti Normal, and
h e r husband Pratrap Jhaveri,
Grad., reenacted their marriage.
Actually they were married some
time ago in an American cere-
mony.
Seated under an impromptu
canopy, the couple faced each

TWINKLE TWINKLE:
Jupiter To Outshine All
Other Stars This Month

other, but were separated by a
white screen, since it is forbid-
den for the bride and groom to
see each other until the priest,
or purohit, is sure that they will
be married.
As one part of the ritual the
purohit ties the end of the bride-
groom's garment, a dhoti, to the
bride's sari. Together the couple
winds three times around a cere-
monial fire to invoke the good
wishes of the gods.
Symbolic of the gaiety in music
and dancing which follows an In-
dian wedding were semi-classic
and modern Indian tunes sung by
members of the'Association. Sing-
ing and dancing by representa-
tives of the Hawaii Club, and a
performance of the Mexican hat
dance and Japanese fan dance
were also included in the program.
The scent of Indian agarpathi
(incense) filled the room as the
wedding ceremony was completed
with a feast of native food.

mas season preparations disclosed
that a Grand Rapids firm will be

ating material.1
The retailers are also planning a
Santa Claus parade Dec. 3.
Gov. Williams1
Plans TV Show
LANSING-(IP)-Governor Wil-
liams will add a television pro-,

on the planet since the September
discovery of its twelfth satellite
with the giant telescope at Mt.
Wilson.
The newly discovered satellite
is so faint that it appears only one
four-hundred millionth as bright
as Jupiter, according to Prof. Hazel
M. Losh of the astronomy depart-
ment.
Not only Jupiter will command
attention this month. Anyone
walking the streets between 3 and
4 a.m. wil be able to observe Mars,
Venus and Saturn standing in an
almost vertical line.
By the end of November, the
number of daylight hours will de-
crease to approximately nine. At
this time, the sun will reach a
point within *two degrees of its
most southerly position south of
the equator.
Illinois Offers
Michigan Plan
For Mutual Aid
LANSING-VP)-A mutual as-
sistance pact between Michigan
and Illinois in case of public emer-
gency is in the making.
Governor G. Mennen Williams
of Michigan replied enthusiastic-
ally yesterday to a proposal by
Governor Adlai E. Stevenson of
Illinois that the two states discuss
the formation of an agreement for
mutual aid.
Williams accepted Stevenson's
invitation to have their two state
civil defense directors meet and
map the plan.
Michigan's Governor said he
could not conclude such an
agreement without permission
of the Legislature but would be
willing to submit one to the
1952 Legislative session. Steven-
son said any agreement includ-
ing Illinois must be approved
by the Legislature or an interim
civil defense committee of the
Legislature.
Gov. Stevenson wrote that "al-
though Michigan and Illinois have
no common land boundary, the
resources of the two states are
sufficiently great to enable them
to lend very substantial assistance
to each other in case of enemy
attack."
