THE NEW PRESIDENT, spic-
ing his talk with a great deal of
humor, delivered a warm welcom-
ing address to the visitors. Look-
ing back over the past, he spoke
of great progress "in forming our
opinions about American schools."
The ideal of education, he
said, is to make children hon-
est, good citizens who are in-
telligent and expert. This is
the kind of progress we have
b e en making through the
years."
"But," the president added, "we
must not lose our -sense of di-
rection and become confused. We
must make a continual advance
toward that ideal.
EARLIER IN the day Roy E.
Larsen, chairman of the National
Citizens Commission for the Pub-
lic Schools addressed the group.
"The older generation doesn't
' know, what's being taught in
the schools or the techniques
being used," Larson said. He
called for greater interest from
the people in the public schools
and their needs.
'The conference alsoheard Prof.
William Haber. of the economics
department at the morning ses-
sion.
Buell G. Gallagher, assistant
commissioner of the U. S. Officel
of Education, concluded the pro-
gram with an after-dinner speech'

'U' Advises
Students on
Deferment
The Armed Services Informa-
tion Center will be open again this
year for those students, both vet-
erans and of draft age, who have
questions regarding their draft
status.
Located in Rm. 555, Adminis-
tration Building, the center is
equipped to answer most queries.
Richard Correll, director of the
center, expects most questions to
be about the Universal Military
bill passed by Congress early this
summer.
THE BILL provides that any
physically fit male between the
ages of 181/2 and 24 must serve in
the armed forces for two years.
However, there are several ways
to gain deferment as Correll
points out. A student may join
the ROTC, or be deferred on the
basis of scholastic proficiency.
{ Upon receipt of his notice for
induction, the student may ask
for deferment until the end of
the academic year. He may apply
for consideration for reclassifica-
tion from his local draft board on
the basis of class status and col-
lege qualification test score.
If the student's draft board re-
fuses to reclassify him, Correll
advises students to appeal to the
state draft board within ten days.
If this appeal fails, the only re-
course left to the student is the
Presidential Appeal Board. If re-
fused by the Presidential Board,
the student must report for in-
duction at the end of the aca-
demic year.

People Interested in helping
students of destitute countries ob-
tain the books and lab supplies
necessary to complete their edu-
cation were urged to contact the
World Student Service Fund in
the SL building, by Fran Reitz,
'53, WSSF co-chairman.
"Although last year's combined
campus contribution was $2,100,"
she said, "WSSF fell short of its
national goal, and because this
year's drive will have to be
stronger, we'll need more people
to carry it through."

WSSF Calls on cU' Students
To Aid Needy in Other Lands

In the past years, money has
been supplied, through WSSF of-
f ices in the country concerned, for
such supplies as a mimeograph
machines to reproduce notes for
Indonesian s t u d e it without
books, medical and food services
for Indian and Japanese students
and financial aid to many other..
countries.

I WANT

to be an alert, intelligent person-
to know not only my schoolwork but also to be aware of
the changing events in contemporary life-
to go beyond the sensationalism of the daily newspapers
to an understanding of world events in their proper
perspective-
to know not only political developments but to be aware t
of the economical, scientific, educational, and cultural
(the theatre, cinema, arts, music and literature) activi-
ties. I feel that I can best achieve these ends by
subscribing to Time so that I will form a habit of
reading it every week at my leisure.

By DIANE DECKER
Nerve-racking is the life of the
campus commuter.
When he drives to school in the
morning, he has to follow a
straight and narrow path, and if
he deviates, it's the dean's office
for him.
* * *.
ACCORDING TO University
driving regulations, a commuter
can make brief stops along the way
to eat or see somebody, but "should
the point to be visited lie slightly
off the line of commutation," he
has to "stop on the route at the
point closest to the destination and
walk from there."
This is but one of the many
enveloping restrictions which

keep student driving at a well-
controlled minimum at the Uni-
versity.
Except for teaching fellows and
other students over 26 years old,
who must secure a permit, auto-
matically granted, no student can
drive a car on campus without first
securing a treasured permit from
the Office of Student Affairs.
* * *
AND IT ISN'T EASY. By virtue
of a ruling tightened this year,
even married students are now re-
quested to secure permits for their
family driving.
In the case of students whose
home is in Ann Arbor, permits
will be issued for family errands
and transportation of guests of
the entire family. Social activi-
ties, though, are strictly for-
bidden.
Permits are also available for
business purposes, reasons of
health and other "exceptional and
extraoardinary cases at the discre-
tion of the Dean of Students."
EXEMPTIONS from the driving
prohibition may be procured by
calling at Office of Student Af-
fairs, 1020 Administration Bldg.,
and making application.
The driving ban was first in-
stituted by the Board of Regents
in 1927. Prior to the ruling, the
number of students Wlled here
in auto deaths averaged five
per year. Since the rule went in-

to effect, only two students have
been killed while driving.
Parents strongly supported the
ban from the start. The traffic
mortality plus the unfair social ad-
vantage of having a car were
strong motivating forces behind
the regulation.
Administrative assistant in
charge of auto regulations, Karl
D. Streiff warned that students
with permits are to use them only
for those purposes for which they
were given. He also cautioned stu-
dents that the excuse "I thought I
was exempt" is not valid.
IA U Open House
To Be Held Sunday
The Inter-Arts Union will hold
open house for all interested stu-
dents and faculty members from
7:30 to 11:00 p.m. Sunday, at 904
Olivia Avenue, home of Prof.
Charles L. Stevenson of the philo-
sophy department and Anne K.
Stevenson, '54 SM, president of
LA.U.
The first business meeting of
the current year will be held at 2
p.m. Sunday in the ABC Rm. of
the League. The I.A.U. also an-
nounces that Prof. Hayward Ken-
iston of the romance languages
department will replace Prof. Oli-
ver Edel of the School of Music
as faculty adviser.
