MICHIGAN CAT GOES MUSICAL-Despite the proud 'M' which
she flaunts in the middle of her forehead, Pumpkin has de-em-
phasized feline athletics in favor of the classics. Owned by Mr.
and Mrs. Grant Beglarian of Plymouth, both '51 graduates of the
University music school, the nine week old kitten is the second
cat to rate recognition for her unusual marking.


Conscientious Objection'
Clarified by Counselor

A person who receives his call
to religion along with his call to
the armed forces is not a consci-
entious objector.
According to Gordon L. Hanson,
Selective Service Counselor, con-
scientious objectors, known in the
army as "conchies," must have
religious scruples, preferably of
long standing, and documented to

the satisfaction of their local draft
THE QUESTION of conscienti-
ous objection was recently brought,
to the fore on this campus with
the refusal of Robert O. Winder,I
an Ann Arbor high school stu-
dent, to take a military orienta-
tion course required for gradua-
tion. Winder stated that the
course consisted of "military in-
Considering the case, Hanson
cited the Selective Service Act,
which states that a person can-
not claim conscientious objec-
tion on "essentially political, so-
ciological or philosophical views
or on merely a personal moral
If a personal claim for exemp-
tion from combatant training and
service is sustained by the local
draft board, the claimant is as-
signed noncombatant duty. If he
is opposed to any participation in
the service of his country, his lo-
cal draft board may 'assign him
civilian duties for a period of
time equal to length in service.
scientious objection which is not
upheld by his draft board may be
appealed before a special board
which refers him to the Depart-
ment of Justice for an inquiry and
hearing, although the final deci-
sion rests with the appeal board.
Included in the University Mili-
tary Service and Training Act is
the statement that nothing con-
tained in it applies to any person
"who by reason of religious train-
ing or belief is conscientiously op-
posed to participation in war in
any form."

Trailer life can be pleasant--
and inexpensive too.
In fact most of the 23 student
families living in a trailer park
located near the campus wouldn't
live any other way while in college.
They find the congenial, secluded
atmosphere of a trailer park far
superior to the small, and usually
expensive apartment they would
have to rent in the city.
In addition to being less expen-
sive in the long run, residents
maintain trailers have all the ad-
vantages of an apartment-with
space to spare.
* * *
IT IS EASY to see why trailer
residents enjoy living in the park.
The trailers are arranged neatly
in four rows, and are all brightly
painted, many with flower patches
planted around them during the
spring and summer months.
Inside the trailers are modern

and spacious. Size of the aver-
age trailer is 35 feet, and many
have small additions built onto
them used mainly for study
space. They are furnished as
brightly and cheerfully as many
The trailers are, in fact, homes
to the student families who live
in them-at least for the present.
The average length of time spent
in them is four years, and most of
these young married couples have
known no other home while mar-
ALTHOUGH MOST of them ex-
pect to have their own homes after
graduation they find it an ideal
way to live for the present. After
the initial investment in the trail-
er, usually about $2,500, rent is
relatively cheap-averaging about
$20 a month.
When they are finally through
with their trailer they can then
sell it, realizing a good part of
their initial investment.
Although five families have chil-
dren, they do not find this a hind-
rance to trailer living. Children
play within the limits of the park
itself, and are thus safe from the
crowded and busy streets usually
found near apartment buildings.
Owners of the park, Mr. and
Mrs. S. E. Keenan. find students
their best residents. They, them-
selves, live in an apartment above
their office, located at the front
of the park. Since they bought
the park in 1946 they have improv-
ed it in many ways, with definite
plans for the future.

"shacks." These are usually used as a Lary and .c r ne tey are separated from the

HEN-PECKED?-Since the wives of most students work dtTring

chores commonly relegated to the feminine half of the family.
Here one student husband smilingly gathers in the diapers which
he washed earlier in the day, as his small\ son watches him in-
