Crucial Athletic
Meetings Slated
(Editor's note: This is the last in a series of articles dealing with the
intercollegiate athletics picture, and the present movement to "de-emphasize"
college sports.)
Two crucial meetings scheduled this month may shape the course
of athletics at the University.
On Dec. 13, the Board in Control of Intercollegiate Athletics,
with President Harlan Hatcher attending, is scheduled to meet. Out of
it, according to a source close to the Board, may come a "decision which
will shake the nation," though another source said it would be a
routine meet'ing.
On Dec. 17, the Faculty Senate is scheduled to convene. The
Senate is expected to appoint a committee to investigate the athletic

Way for Hike
I Price Level
WASHINGTON-()-The gov-
ernment last night opened the way
for possible price i creases on
thousands of consumer items, in-
cluding clothing, meat, foods, milk,
butter, coal, gasoline, tobacco,
beer, drugs and cosmetics.
The Office of Price Stabilization
gave thousands of manufacturers,
processors, refiners, and mining
concerns permission to apply for
higher ceilings under the Capehart
amendment to the Controls Law.
This amendment requires the
government to allow manufac-
turers and processors to use
their pre-Korean prices and add
or subtract cost increases or de-
creases through last July 26 in
computing new ceilings.
Because application of the Cape-
hart formula is optional, OPS said
Sthat the general effect of its new
order can not be adequately esti-
mated. But, the agency added,
"The Particular effect will be to
raise prices whenever an applica-
tion for adjustment is granted."
The order carrying the Cape-
hart amendment is effective at
once. It was issued shortly after
Price Director Michael V. Di
Salle reported to a joint Con-
gressional committee that prices
apparently were rising again and
it would be a dangerous risk to
decontrol any major items now.
Di Salle said in a speech in New
York that temporary direct con-
trols are necessary to help prevent
"a wild inflationary scramble that
might well drag down the entire
nation to destruction."

submit "specific recommenda-
tions" to the Board of Regents.
MEANWHILE, the controversy
initiated by Prof. Hayward Ken-
iston's nine-point plan to "restore
athletics to its proper place on
campus" waxed hot and heavy yes-
A large number of faculty
members was reportedly back-
ing the retired literary college
dean's proposals.
'He had suggested that the Board
in Control be relegated to a "re-
commending body," that the Fac-
ulty Senate make the final deci-
sions on athletic policy, and that
control of athletic funds and eli-
gibility standards for athletes
should pass to the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs.
HOWEVER, a student member
of the Board, Bob Perry, '53E,

control of athletic funds from the
Board to the OSA, Perry was
brief: "I have great confidence in
(Athletic Director) Fritz Crisler on
all financial problems."
Nor did he agree with the sug-
gestion to vest authority to deter-
mine the academic eligibility of
athletes in the OSA. "The prob-

SL Tables
Motion Again
Perry Protests
Failure To Act
Tempers flared at, the Student
Legislature meeting last night as
the chronic student bookstore
problem was tabled again.
The excitement was caused by
a motion from Bob Perry, '53E,
asking for the establishment of a
student bookstore in the proposed
addition to the Union, and a joint
Union-SL plea to the Regents to
remove a supposed by-law prohib-
iting a University activity from
competing with Ann Arbor merch-
ants insofar as the bookstore is
A *
THE ISSUE was further com-
plicated by the announcement
that the Inter Fraternity Council
was dropping their Student Book
Exchange. (See story, page 6.)
After a debate which revealed
a substantial lack of detailed
information on the subject on
the part of the Legislature,
Keith Beers, '52E, movedto
table the motion for further
study till March 12,
But Perry rose to protest the
proposed tabling. He pointed out
that a similar motion was pro-
posed nine months ago, and re-
ferred back to committee at that
time. Since then, he attested, the
project has been gathering dust.
Despite his objections, the mo-
tion was tabled.
* *
JOHN KATHE and Jim Moran,
president and secretary of the
Union respectively, were on hand
to answer -questions as to the
Union's policy on the bookstore
In answering a query, Kathe de-
clared that no commitments re-
garding a bookstore could be made
at this time because there were too
many uncertain factors involved.
In the first place, there is no
assurance now that the neces-
sary funds and approval can
be obtained for building the new
wing, which presumably might
house the bookstore, he said.
Further, the Union can take
no action as long as the present
Regents' prohibition on competi-
tion with local merchants exists,
he asserted.
* *
PERRY afterwards expressed
considerable bitterness that the
project had been tabled. "The
Legislature can afford plenty of
time for petty organizational prob-
lems, but refuses to spend its 'val-
uable' time in considering a prob-
lem which is of real importance
to the students."
The Legislature also tabled the
National Student Association stu-
dent bill of rights, providing in
broad outline for student self-
government, a voice in University
affairs relating to them, the right
to organize their own clubs and
to get an adequate education.
Committee chairmanships went
to Bob Neary, '54, Campus Action
Committee; Roger Wilkins, '53,
Human Relations Committee; Sue
Popkin, '53, Public Relations Com-
mittee; Sondra Diamond, '53, In-
ternational Relations Committee;

tion Committee.

In Station Split
The telephone line which con-

station, with the inter-dormitory
radio system was cut at midnight
yesterday by WEQN withsthe offi-
cial approval of the East Quad
In defense of the WEQN deci-
sion, Bill Gerson, '52, pointed out
that their station had offered to
relinquish ownership of equipment
and facilities to piromote a cooper-
ative system.
"WEQN may think they are be-
ing generous, but they're not,"
countered Remo Boila, '53BAd.,
representing the West, Quad.
"They are asking time and money
for expanding facilities which will
remain in their own quad," he

War II.
The announcement, made
through the official news agency
Tanjug, did not say what the con-
ditions were. But it referred to
Msgr. Stepinac as the "former
archbishop," making clear that
the government does not recog-
nize him as the head of the Cath-
olic Church in Yugoslavia or in
any other official capacity.

MUNSAN, Korea, Thursday, Dec.
6-(P)-Communist truce delegates
dodged or gave evasive answers
yesterday on terms for supervising
a Korean armistice but the United
Nations command indicated it was
ready to probe today for areas of
common agreement.
A third sub-committee session
was scheduled for 11 a.m. today
(9 p.m. yesterday, Ann Arbor
time) at Panmunjom.
The meeting convened on sche-
terday the Communists cited two
Russian satellites, Poland and
Czechoslovakia, as suitable to
serve on the Communist proposed
neutral inspection teams to police
a Korean truce.
The Reds also mentioned Swit-
zerland, Denmark and Sweden
as qualified to serve because
they had not sent troops to

correspondents that the fact neu-
tral countries were discussed was
no indication that the UN com-
mand had accepted the Red pro-
posal for truce inspections by neu-

MEANWHILE, the Fifth Air
Force destroyed five Communist
jets and damaged five more yes-
terday in the tenth straight day
of aerial duels over Northwest
An Air Force communique said
all Allied planes returned safely
without damage, although "MIG
Alley" swarmed with 230 or more
of the swift Russian-built jets.
It was the greatest sustained
series of air clashes of the Korean
war and underscored the rising
tempo of the air war.
T h e action over Northwest
Korea contrasted sharply with the
fading 'twilight war" along the
,145-mile battle line. Only slight
contact was reported yesterday by
the U.S. Eighth Army.

YR, YD Argue
Foreign Policy,
Economic Aid
In a calm, formal debate last
night two Young Republicans and
two Young Democrats agreed that
"foreign policy is a very grave
matter" and disagreed on points
of economic aid to Europe and the
Democratic administration's far
Eastern policy.
Republican Bill Halby, '53, sup-
ported aid to Europe but insisted
that "the North Atlantic Treaty is
a mistake because it provides for
continuous aid for twenty years,
regardless of what the European
countries can do for themselves."
His teammate, Ed Levenberg,
'52, also challenged the two Demo-
crats, Al Blumrosen, '53L and
James Nopper, '53L With the ques-
tion, "How far can we go in sup-
plyingeconomic aid?" Nopper an-
swered Levenberg with, "we can go
as far as we are able." Blumrosen
joined in with, "No one cax say
where the limit is in advance."
Levenberg brought up the sec-
ond point of disagreement-the
Far East-when he claimed that
the United States should arm Na-
tionalist troops on Formosa and
use them in China.
Blumrosen termed Chiang Kai-
shek a "disastrous ally."

Restaurant Losses Blamed on 'U' Competition

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the second in a series of articles on the
problems of Ann Arbor restaurants.)
Ann Arbor restaurant men know that there are many reasons
behind the sad state of their business but feel that "University com-
petition" is the only one they can influence.
Therefore they are concentrating their fire on the University as
the prime cause for the red ink on restaurant ledgers throughout the
BOTH OWNERS and the University shows that in 1930 only
6,000 students ate "on the town" but this year there are over 7,000
students who dine outside residence halls and other University-ap-
proved eating places.
But the same tables reveal that in 1948 over 11,000 students
ate regularly in Ann Arbor's restaurants. The crux of the prob-
lem is what happened to the 4,000 students who no longer eat in
local eating establishments.
One explanation, offered by the Administration, is that most of
those students are no longer enrolled here. Moreover, they point out,
part of that decline came from the liouidation of dormitory housing

has even cut into after-dinner business by such ventures as the Snack
Bar and Club 600.
And their taxes, they protest, a're helping the University to "com-
pete unfairly" with Ann Arbor business enterprises.

REALIZING THAT it would be unfeasible to demand the Univer-
sity's complete withdrawal from competition with the restaurants, the
Restaurant Meeting
The Ann Arbor Restaurant Association will meet at 8 p.m.,
today at the American Legion Post on 1035 S. Main St.
According to a notice circulated by the association, the chief
problem under discussion will be how to meet price cuts by certain
restaurants in Ann Arbor and Detroit.
Ann Arbor Restaurant Association has evolved a three-point program
which the association maintains would at least take the "unfairness"
out of the competition.
1-They demand that the University make dining in the Resi-

authorities goes back to the opening of the East Quad Snack Bar in
1950. Then an Association delegation conferred with Vice-President
Robert Briggs and then Director of Residence Halls Francis Shiel.
They were told that the University had Installed the Snack
Bar only after repeated requests from students in the quad and
would operate it only so long as it broke even.
The Snack Bar, after an initial loss, is currently breaking even
and there are no plans for halting its operations.
"As long as the students demand these things," Association Presi-
dent Reid admitted last week, "it will be difficult to change matters."

IN MARCH 1950, when plans for Club 600 in the new South Quad
were made public, a second delegation visited the Administration
Building and protested the inclusion of a soda fountain in the blue-

were all part of the Michigan House Plan and thus "part of our edu-
