For Role in 'Ruddigore'
Prof. Worley Defends Truck industry

An Army unif.orm has been

of the Gilbert and Sullivan Soci-

grease paint and a fisherman's

Challenging students to justify
the existence of self-government
in the dorms, Dean of Students
Erich A. Walter and Assistant
Dean of the literary college, James
H. Robertson, last night gave the
two-day residence hall govern-
ment workshop a formal send-off.
Dean Walter and Dean Robert-
son spoke at dinner in West Quad
held last night for dorm and fa-
culty representatives. Sponsored by
the Joint House Presidents Coun-
cil, the actual workshop business
will be conducted this morning in
several discussion groups made up
of executive officers from both
men's and women's dorms.
THE PREMISE upon which the
workshop's activities will be based
is the Michigan House Plan. This
plan, according to Dean Robertson,
assumes that life in resident halls
s an integral part of campus ex-
perience and should provide cul-
tural and social opportunities to
"Your main job, however is to
bring your electors along with
you," Robertson told the group of
Even if dorm government con-
sists merely in providing towel
racks, it must be more than a
superstructure and must act as
a vital force in which everyone
can participate, he emphasized.
Summing up, Dean Walter said,
"If in 1975 you can look back and
say that you had a hand in es-
tablishing a more vital faith in
student government, you will be
accomplishing the purpose of this

Bob Baker, '52BAd, was at a
loss to explain his record perform-
ance. His campaign consisted of
120 letters and speeches at one
house meeting, one open house,

amazing in light of the fact that
Bill McIntyre, '52, set his 318 rec-

This marked the third straight
semester the vote has dropped,
and the lowest total since spring,

A ONE-TIME Society president
and one of its most ardent mem-
bers, Scheffler's leave has made it
possible for him to keep intact
an unbroken chain of G and S
performances which began in 1947.
At that time, an eager sophomore,
he appeared as a member of the
Every succeeding semester
found him enhancing the G & S
chorus line, and'even after his
graduation he continued his
contact by commuting from his
home in order to be in the shows.
"I never got beyond the chorus,"
he explained, "because I can't
sing." This lack of ability did not
dampen Scheffler's enthusiasm
however. "I can always keep the
tune with the help of the fellow
next to me," he added.
SCHEFFLER'S long experience
made it easy for him to fit right
into the "Ruddigore" line. "I feel
a little guilty," he observed.
"Everyone else practiced for weeks,
I just walked in and picked up the

dule will luckily allow him to
finish the "Ruddigore" run. The
show will continue at 8 p.m. to-
Looking to the future, Scheffler
is afraid the Society might have
to carry on without him next se-
mester. But he hasn't entirely giv-
en up hope yet. "I've already ap-
plied for a leave for next April,"

Trucking is the "Cinderella" of
the transport family, according to
Prof. Emeritus John S. Worley, of
the University transport engineer-
ing department, one of the coun-
try's leading highway authorities.
Prof. Worley vigorously defend-
ed the trucking industry against
attackers in an article "In Defense
of Trucks" which appeared in the
November issue of "American Mer-
* * *
THE INDUSTRY, according to
Prof. Worley, is "abused out of
hand, badgered by punitive legisla-
tion and taxes and, above all,
blamed for all the ills to which
motor highways are heir."
Prof. Worley says that trucks,
as big and obvious as they are on
the roads today, make a con-
venient whipping boy for traffic
annoyances by road officials, tax
officials, automotive outfits and
He blamed editors of national
magazines which recently assailed
the motor freight industry for be-
ing all too human and sharing the
"irrational spleen" of their read-
ers. This makes them easy tar-
gets for anti-truck propaganda.
ACCORDING TO Prof. Worley,
neither the editor nor the reader
stops to consider that the growth
of trucking reflects and accelerates
the American way of life. Some
25,000 American communities are
totally dependent on trucks for
Besides serving small towns
without railroads, trucks are
links between the railroads and
consumers. They are the main-
stay of small businesses which
cannot afford to buy their sup-
plies in carloads.
The article points out that one
in every seven jobs in the United
States is provided by the trucking
industry. Elaborating, Prof. Wor-
ley said that t ere are five million
truck drivers, nearly a million
drivers and millions more engaged
in all aspects of manufacture, sales
and supply for automotive car-
Most of the recent objections to
trucks have been in regard to the
overload problem and its influence
on America's roads. Prof. Worley
said overload cases are in a mi-
nority, and do not reflect the sen-
timent of the entire industry.

" NEW COMMAND-Colonel William Todd, head of the University's Air Force ROTC unit confirms
the appointment of four new cadet Colonels. They are, left to right, Bob Beckett, '52E; Pat Cousland,
'52E; Dave Leslie, 52A and Bob Shelter, '53E. The cadet commanders will supervise the training of over
660 AFROTC cadets under the administration of Col. Todd. They were appointed upon the basis of
scholastic ability and leadership qualities. Last year, only one cadet colonel was chosen, but because
the size of the unit has tripled this semester, three new ones were appointed. Their commissions will
terminate at the end of the academic year after which they will receive second lieutenant commis-
sions in the Air Force.

This service is one of the Center
activities designed to increase op-
portunities to introduce foreigners
to Americans, according to Mrs.
Margaret Mead, social director.
THE FALL holiday corresponds
to similar festivals students cele-
brate in other countrie's, such as
the gid-Autumn festival of China
and the Hindu and Moslem Diwali
More than a hundred foreign
students have signed up for
placement this year under the

fect several years with an in-
creasingly large response each
Local civic clubs, women's or-
ganizations and individual citizens
have been contacted to have the
foreign students as guests.
Church groups may cooperate in
the distribution of invitations
through Doris Reed, Inter-deno-
minational Secretary for Protes-
tant Students, at Lane Hall. Invi-
tations are also being channeled
through the International Center
with Mrs. Mead.
University Regent Roscoe O.
Bonisteel, Ann Arbor attorney,
denied yesterday that he might
seek the Republican nomination
for the United States Senate.
A Lansing dispatch earlier in the
day had indicated that "some Re-
publicans" had proposed Bonisteel
as a GOP Senate contestant.
"I am deeply appreciative of the
honor some friends have bestowed
upon me in proposing my name,"
Bonisteel said. "But I will not be
put forward as a candidate."
Only avowed candidate for the
GOP Senate nomination at pres-
ent is state Auditor General John
B. Martin, Jr.

that some soliciting will continue

Singers concert of the season at

Several first performances will
be included in the program. These
are Schubert's "God in Nature,"
to be sung by the Women's Choir,
and two sixteenth century Latin
motets, to be rendered by the
Michigan Singers. In addition ex-
cerpts from "The Peaceable King-
dom" by Randall Thompson and
Tschesnokoff's "Salvation Is Cre-
ated" will be presented.
Conducted by Prof. Maynard
Klein of the University Music
School, both the Women's Choir

The performance will be open to

sponse, according to Miss Pack,
has been "overwhelming."

AT FIRST surprised by her un-
solicited pin offers, Miss Pack de-
cided to take advantage of the joke
and has been accepting all offers.
With four pins already collected,
she expects to have quite a for-
midable collection to display. j
She revealed that Michigan
men have been very generous-
none of them have offered their
pins on a rental basis.
Reaction to her "plight" has
been very sympathetic, Miss Pack
explained, although "one fellow
looked at me awfully funny when
he gave me his pin."
Another practical jokester in-
serted an ad in yesterday's paper
asking "the girl who has Marshall
Hershon's pin to please return it
immediately." The origin and re-
sults of this ad are still undeter-
