THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Platters Turn at Barbour Breakfasts
For the third time this semester,
students, faculty and members of
the administration will get to-
gether and discuss mutual prob-
lems at a literary college confer-
ence at 7:30 p.m. today in the
The conference will examine
grading methods and attempt to
cover as many facets of the prob-
lem as possible, discussing present
flaws in the system and possible
AFTER AN introductory speech
opening the meeting, those present
will take up the topic.
"The discussion can cover any
phase of the question, and no
one need pull punches when it
comes to criticism," according
to Walt Vogtmann, '52, chair-
man of thel conference's Steer-
"Faculty and Administration
representatives present are inter-

students, and they often have
something to criticize themselves,"
CHOSEN BECAUSE finals are
coming up and marks are on ev-
eryone's mind, the Steering Com-
mittee expects the timeliness of
the topic to attract a large num-
ber of interested students with
"gripes to get off their chests,"
"The, University's grading
system has almost become a tra-
dition and has received a great
deal of criticism in the past. If
students want a change made,
here is their chance," he point-
Following the meeting a sub-
committee will be organized un-
der a member of the Steering
Committee from the students pre-
sent at the meeting. The group
will draw up a report of the gen-

it to the college for consideration

"action depends upon the student
turnout and the validity of their

Before the current publicity
campaign started, the Society's
morale hit a discouraging low.
Clara Ford, Betsy Barbour's office

In spite of the Society's success,
the majority of residents still hold
that an improvement in food
would get more people to Satir-
day breakfast than music, candle-
light, and centerpieces combined.
Union Will Still
Union travel service will at-
tempt to obtain rides for all last
minute applicants, according to
Harry Blum, '54, but he advised
students who need rides or pas-
sengers to register immediately.
Riders or drivers may sign up
in the Union lobby, in the East
Quad old entrance, or by calling
the Union offices, 24431, between
4 and 6 p.m. today, tomorrow or

The proclamation issued by
President Albert Jorgenson, stated
that beginning in September, 1951,
the use of University owned build-

with discriminatory clauses.
At Syracuse, an anti-discrimi-

practices and provides a student-
