Union Plans
Open Forum
Tomorrow
A possible revision of the Union
constitution highlighted by a new
solution to the controversial elec-
tion of vice-presidents will be dis-
cussed by Union members at an
open meeting tomorrow.
The meeting, scheduled for 4 to
6 p.m. in Rm. 3-A of the Union,
will be open to all Union members,
who will be given a chance to ad-
Vance their own suggestions and
ask questions concerning the Un-
ion government structure, accord-
ing to Union President John
Kathe, '52P.
Kathe explained that the pro-
posals which have been drawn up
by a committee of campus leaders
will be combined with suggestions
made by students at the meeting
and submitted to the Union Board
of Directors. The Board's approv-
al is necessary before a general
meeting to amend the constitution
can be called.
"We are trying to formulate a
judicious revision to benefit the
students," Kathe said, "and I urge
all Union members to attend this
meeting so we can be guided by
their opinions."
'U" To Receive
New Electric
Computator
An elctronics machine, which
will enable a scientist to do a six-
month's job in three weeks will be
set up by the University's Tabu-
lating Service at a scientific com-
puting center.
The new machine, when deliv-
ered, will make the University one
of the first institutions to receive
the calculator model.
Kurt Benjamin, supervisor of
the Tabulating Service, pointed
out that with the addition of the
device, "in cooperation with the
Statistical Research Laboratory
here, facilities will be available to
qualified students and staff mem-
bers to gain experience in machine
methods of handling scientific
computation"
A meeting will be held at 4 p.m.
today in the Rackham Amphithe-
atre at which the new facilities
will be explained to interested stu-
dents and faculty members.

Coeds Fill H
By GAYLE GREENE
"Coming to the University has
been so profitable," a demure
young coed said yesterday, point-
ing to a trunk full of flowered
china.
"Bob and I can start out mar-
ried life with a complete dinner
service for four with these dishes
I borrowed from the dining room
downstairs," she continued.
. * *
BORROWING silverware, dish-
es, salt and pepper shakers and
even furniture seems to have be-
come just another extra-curricu-
lar activity on campus.
Tales of the eventual reappear-
ance of pilfered household items
are heard daily.
One woman unintentionally
"squealed" on her boyfriend
when she announced to the oc-
cupants of a crowded restaur-
ant: "I won't need sterling sil-
ver when I get married, Elliot
has the cutest pattern-A whole
bunch of little forks and spoons
and things with Michigan Union
engraved on them."
Another coed told of her hope
chest full of sheets, accumulated
over three semesters in a resi-
dence on Observatory Hill. "The
only trouble is," she complained,
"How am I going to explain to my
husband about this? Alice Lloyd
is stamped on all my sheets.
And a third countered with,
"Imagine me trying to explain to
my husband what "Health Serv-
ice" stamped on the edge of my
nightgown stands for."

TEASPOONS, SALT shakers
and linens are common items
which seem to crop up among stu-
dent possessions, according to
Astronomers
Prove Theory
The existence of carbon mon-
oxide on the sun has been posi-
tively proven by a group of the
University's astronomy professors.
Prof. Leo Goldberg, chairman of
the department, gave a report of
the discovery before the American
Astronomical Society during the
Christmas vacation in East Cleve-
land, O.
* * *
THE RESEARCH was done by
Prof. Goldberg, Prof. Robert R.
McMath, director ofthe Univer-
sity's McMath-Hulbert Observa-
tory, Prof. Orren C. Mohler and
Prof. A. Keith Pierce.
According to Prof. Goldberg,
the discovery will have two
benefits:
More information can be ob-
tained about temperatures and
pressures existing in the upper
layers of the sun's atmosphere and
better information should now be-
come available on the abundance
of carbon and oxygen in the sun.
The research, which was car-
ried on at the McMath-Hulbert
Observatory, was done with a lead
sulphide photo cell and infra-red
spectrometer which made it pos-
sible to study the sun's spectrum
in great detail.
Math Conference
To Be Held Here
A conference on mathematics,
sponsored by the education school
and the mathematics department
will convene on Saturday in the

Rackham Bldg.
Dealing with mathematics in
general education, the conference
will concentrate primarily cn the
teaching of math in secondary
schools, from the seventh through
the twelfth grades.

Mayor Sees
Ticket Levy
As'Logical'
(Continued from Page 1)
Nor could Athletic Director H.
0. (Fritz) Crisler, who is out of
town, or his assistant, Ernie Mc-
Coy, be contacted.
The tax, if approved, would be
the first of its kind ever collected
by a Michigan city. At present,
the measure will undergo thorough
committee scrutiny, and probable
examination by the city law de-
partment.
* *, *
MAYOR BROWN said that the
weight of legal opinions available
to him is that Ann Arbor has the
right to levy "this very logical tax."
"Ann Arbor furnishes its
streets, its police protection, its
fire protection, its lighting f a-
cilities, and many other services
to individuals who come from
many cities outside our com-
munity."
"If it is necessary to have court
action to legalize it," the Mayor
continued, "we should be prepared
to do so. I think there are many
cities in the state that would wel-
come our leadership in this mat-
ter, and I strongly urge the Coun-
cil to immediately prepare such an
ordinance."
Brown admitted that "it prob-
ably would not be possible to put
it into effect this fiscal year, but
certainly it should be working by
next year."
INew Selection
To Be Heard
A composition new to Ann Arbor
will highlight the Cincinnati Sym- i
phony Orchestra's presentation ofI
the seventh Choral Union Concert
at 8:30 p.m. Monday in Hill Audi-
torium.
"Wasps' Overture" by Ralph
Vaughan Williams is the selection
not previously heard here. Other
numbers on the program will be
"Symphony No. 8" by Dvorak,
"Symphonic Metamorphosis of
Themes by von Weber" by Hind-
mith, and "A Night on Bald
Mountain" by Moussorgsky.
Tickets for the concert are
available at the Burton Memorial
Tower.

Michigras Central Committee

tee, sending out a call for all per-

Michigras committees, will hold a

the Union Ballroom.
One of the biggest events of the
spring semester, Michigras, the
all-campus carnival, is held in
Yost Field House for two days in
New Time Slated
For Philosophy

p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Fri-

April. There is also a gigantic par-
ade on the first day in which cam-
pus groups enter floats to be judg-
ed for prizes.
"MICHIGRAS is definitely an
all - campus production," P a t
Smith, '52, general co-chairman
said. "Membership on the com-
mittees is open to any and all
students - the carnival succeeds
through the cooperation of every-
one, freshmen through seniors."
There are places open for peo-
ple interested in working on pro-
grams, publicity, posters, booth
construction, ticket taking, decor-
ations, refreshments, parade or-
ganization and prizes, Smith said.

get the project underway, and no
actual work will be done until next
