U' DP Program Adopted
By Many Other Colleges
By MARGE SHEPHERD
A plan for the resettlement of
displaced students from Eastern
European countries adopted at the
University last year is now spread-
ing to c dIle g e communities
throughout the country.
The new system, by which for-
mer students overseas are brought
to a college town on a strictly job
assurane program originated
from the requests of the students
themselves for some type of a
THE UNIVERSITY Displaced
Persons Committee, working with
the local Council of Churches, was
the first group to work out the
system as advanced by the World
Student Service Fund.

Quarterfinal arguments in the
Law School Case Club's Henry M.
Campbell competitions will be held
at 7:30 p.m. today in Hutchins
Eight teams will compete in four
different courtrooms simultane-
ously for a chance to take part in
the semifinal round next March.
THE CASE '- A' will be argued
by all team rican Equip-
ment Workers L - a Local 555 v.
Campbell Gear and Equipment
Co.," concerns the validity of a
court injunction issued against a
strike and picketing carried on by
The Champlin Club, which in-
eludes Albert L. Feldman and
Al Blumrosen, will argue against
Independent Team One, consist-
ing of Donald C. Lunt and
Charles E. Oldfather; and the
Rogers Club, Robert G. Russell
and J. Kirby Hendee will meet
the Christency Club, Warren K.
Urbom and Robert S. Beach.
Other mock trials tonight will
find the Montgomery Club, James
W. Callison and James L. Weldon,
Jr., vs. Woodward Club, Alan R.
Kidston and Hyman L. Berman;
and Independent Team Two, Hugo
A. Walfred and Joseph Neath, vs.
Day Club, Walter Flickinger and
Charlie W. Wexler.
Each of the hearings, which are
open to the public, will be judged
by three members of th law school
faculty. Competing teams have
already submitted extensive briefs
covering their cases.
Tonight's hypothetical situation
finds the union appealing its case
to the state supreme court, claim-
ing that the lower court had no
power to issue an anti-strike in-
junction, that their right to picket
is protected "free speech" under
the Constitution and that any
wrongs the union committed were
under the Taft-Hartley Act and
out of state court jurisdiction.

provision made f o r further

"THE VALUE of being an edu-
cated person in Europe means a
great deal to these people, much
more than can be realized here in
America," Bush Ohmsted, program
director of Lane Hall and advisor
of the committee pointed out.
"They cannot resolve them-
selves to the life of an unedu-
cated person, and are willing to
accept any opportunity which
will at least give them hope of
continuing their education here
in America, a chance which is
non-existent in Europe," Ohm-
Although the DP Committee ac-
tually gives the students no as-
surance of admittance to the Uni-
versity now, by placing them in
the vicinity of the University they
have an incentive to work, to be-
come a part of the school and
have the contact with students
that means so much to them, he
As an illustration of what the
Committee is doing to promote this
contact, an informal get-together
of the displaced students, other
foreign students and Americans
was held last night.
Although the plan is still in the
experimental stage, all cases have
been successful thus far and ideas
for improvement are being gained,
according to Ohmsted.

with grades and examinations en-
One alternative presented was
having percentage grades which
would eliminate "borderline -de-
cisions and give a more equitable
account of the student's true
worth," as one professor present
But objections were raised to
this by several students who main-
tained that the same evils which
are present in the letter grade
system would eventually result.
Another alternative was having
just a passing or failing grade.
But, one student pointed out,
"This system has been tried at
other universities and after a
while students have demanded a
return' to the old system."
The meeting closed with a gen-
eral feeling that the literary col-
lege should tak' a definite stand
on grades and, above all, should
establish a consistant marking

A syndicate headed by an Ann
Arbor real estate dealer and two
other men is expected to acquire
ownership tomorrow of New York's
Empire State Building, tallest#
structure in the world.
The New York World-Telegram
and Sun reported that final ar-
rangements of the long-talked-of
deal are being made by a syndi-
cate headed by Roger L. Stevens
of Ann Arbor, Alfred R. Glaney
of Detroit and Ben Tobin of Holly-
THE TRANSACTION was con-
firmed by Frank L. Garey, execu-
tor for the John L. Raskob Estate,
which held controlling interest in
Original announcement of the
proposed transaction came last
May 27. At that time, the syn-
dicate had been dickering for
about three months on the deal.
Stevens, who has played an im-
portant part in large real estate
transactions in most of the major
cities east of the Mississippi, has
sponsored the Ann Arbor Drama
Season in cooperation with the
University for the past few years.
Stevens, now in New York, was
unavailable for comment yester-
The land on which the building
stands was bought by a New York
insurance company for $17,000,000.
The syndicate includes about 20
members in all, according to the
New York paper. The transaction
is scheduled to be completed
Thursday, it said.
Legislators To Thrash Out
Disputed Fraternity Issue
(Continued from Page 1)
However, the motion would be changed so that SAC, instead
of IFC, would deny recognition to any fraternity which did not
move and support removal of discriminatory clauses at national
Both these motions incorporate to a certain extent the' study

* * * *
MIKE McNERNEY, '53, will introduce a resolution declaring SL's
approval of the study committee report, and calling for the IFC to
reconsider its quick rejection. If adopted, SL would presumably
watch-and-wait till the IFC house presidents have met again.
The fourth motion will probably be a sheer postponement
move, perhaps as long as February. It may either be in the form
of a moiton to table, if the debate gets out of hand, or a simple
motion to postpone.
The now-turbulent bias issue can resolve itself in four ways:
1) A time limit, along the lines of the Human Relations Co'ma-
2) The study committee report as revised by SL, with SAC
denying recognition to groups which fail to make the required
attempts at clause removal.-
3) The study committee report as it
4) The Acacia Plan, as now set up
nothing, or if what they pass is reversed by
stands, with IFC denying

SAC or President Hatcher.
STILLE NACHT-One of the sgores of caroling groups which dotted the campus last night was the
Deutscher Verein, the German Club. Singing carols in the original German, the group spent two
freezing hours winding its way over the snow-blanketed campus.
