'U' Clarifies
Radio Policy
For Football
Home Team To
Have Full Rights
"The home school controls the
radio policy for its football games
and the visiting school has no
right or authority to make broad-
cast arrangements'on its behalf
withotit permission."
Yesterday the University sent
this statement to Michigan State
College. It was in answer to the
charge that the University is re-
sponsible for radio stations having
to pay a fee to broadcast today's
Michigan-MSC game. '

THROUGH ITS college station,
WKAR, Michigan State h a d
planned to deliver a live, play-by-
play broadcast of the game to
any station in 'the state free of
charge and with all line charges
The Board in Control of Ath-
etics here had extended the us-
ual host courtesy to MSC,
whereby WKAR would have free
privileges for broadcasting the
game, according to Arthur L.
Brandon, University Relations
Counselor. That privilege did
not give WKAR the right to set
up a network of other stations,
Brandon said.

Police To Hit
Football Program
Sellers Need Permit
Unlicensed students selling ten-
cent football programs today can
expect severe fines from Ann
Arbor police, Leonard Wilcox, '52,
president of Student Legislature,
warned yesterday.
Police in the stadium area have
been instructed to crack down on
enforcement of an Ann Arbor City
Ordinance requiring vendors of
football programs to obtain an
eight dollar permit to sell on pri-
vate property. In no case will
peddling be allowed on public
streets and sidewalks on football

.Routine for Half-Time Show

(Continued from Page 1)

After being told that it is a vio-
lation of Big Ten rules for a
member to offer to pay line
charges for football broadcasts,
MSC offered the play-by-play to
stations who would pay the costs.
This is the same policy that has
been followed by the University
for several years.
MSC and the radio stations of
s Michigan copies of its broadcast
policy several weeks " ago, but did
not learn that WKAR planned to
feed the broadcast of today's
game to other stations until last
It was only by accident that
the plans were discovered at
that time. The University then
announced that it would be ne-
cessary for the stations taking
the broadcast from WKAR to
pay a fee of $200.

FOIE THOSE in need of fresh air
and exercise, raking leaves at, a
dollar an hour may be the job
with a future.
From male models for Uni-
versity life drawing classes to
men to clean out buses during
football games, there is a wide
range of part-time jobs avail-
able to students; as listed in
the Personnel Office, 3012 Ad-
ministration Bldg.
The office has reported that
there are still a great many part-
time positions available - more
this year than last.
Each student interviewed thus
far this year has received at least
two or three job leads and almost
all have obtained employment,
according to Mrs. Paul A. Gauss,
personnel interviewer.
THERE ARE meal jobs, room
jobs (which give room in ex-
change for part-time work) and
occasionally jobs which provide
room and board.'
In addition, the Personnel Of-
fice has daily requests for stu-
dents to do part-time work in;
afternoons or evenings.1
Seventy-five per cent of all
jobs handled by this service are
non-University work. Employ-
ment for women is usually hand-
led through the Office of the
Dean of Women.

Judge Warns
Students Using
Not even rationalization will
sway the decision of municipal
court judges in the case of stu-'
dents using false identification to
purchase alcoholic liquors.
Whether or not, philosophically,
one should be 21 years old before
being permitted to drink alcoholic
beverages, will not be considered,
Municipal Court Judge Francis
O'Brien pointed out yesterday as'
University officials joined with
him in this warning to students.
* * *
COUPLED WITH the warning
was the threat that Judge O'Brien
would not hesitate to impose fines
ranging from $50 to a maximum of
$100 and ninety days in jail, or
both, on all cases coming before
his court.
Both Dean of Students Erich
A. Walter and Dean of Women
Deborah Bacon supported the
judge in his threat to levy fines
right from the start of the school
year and added that student of-
fenders also face disciplinary ac-
tion by the University.
Dean Walter explained that
though in the past fines have been
assessed through Ann Arbor's
municipal court, students contin-
ued to be violators of the liquor
"This, year it is the expectation
of the court to deal more drasti-
cally with offenders," Dean Walter
HIE AND Dean Bacon joined
Judge O'Brien in emphasizing that
Michigan law forbids the sale of
alcoholic liquor to any person "un-
less he shad have attained the age
of 21 years."
They added that "the Univer-
sity obviously expects its stu-
dents to be truthful and as exact
as they can be in giving any in-
formation about themselves. Our
students are expected to carry
identification cards with them
at all times."
"There is no excuse for giving
inaccurate information about birth
dates," the statement continued.
"Alteration or falsification of such
a date must be recognized for what
it is-deliberate attempt to de-
ceive. It is a serious offense and
will be penalized accordingly."
The liquor law also states that
it is a misdemeanor for any per-
son to give or furnish any alcoholic
beverage to a minor "except upon
authority of and pursuant to a
prescription of a duly licensed

THIS YEAR'S strict action is a
result of traffic congestion caused
last season by roaming vendors,
Captain Rolland J. Gainsley of
the Ann Arbor Police explained.
Following student inquiry, Wil-
cox talked to Gainsley and Athle-
tic Director I. . Crisler. Wil-
cox said that Crisler emphatically
urged students not to sell on
football territory.
The Athletic Director planned
to handle the situation this
year by distributing pamphlets,
indicating the roster of players
for each of the season's games
to students as they picked up
their football tickets.
Students may legally sell ten-
cent football programs if they
first get a Michigan State Sales
Tax License costing one dollar
from Lansing, and a transient
salesman's license for seven dol-
lars from the City of Ann Arbor.
This license requires the salesman
to state a certain street address
as his selling headquarters, City
Clerk Fred J. Looker said.
"SL will continue to work on a
solution to the student vendor's
problem. We do not consider it
a closed issue," Wilcox remarked.
New Textbook
World Political Geography by
Prof. Russell Fifield of the poli-
tical science department has been
selected by the Air Force as the
text for their ROTC geopolitical
The course is a requirement for
all AFROTC freshmen cadets and
the text will be used at the 187
colleges and universities through-
out the country where the course
is being offered.
Prof. Fifield is co-author of the
book with Edsel Peprcy, attache to
the American embassy at New Del-
hi, India. Pearcy is the geographic
editor and Prof. Fifield the poli-
tical editor of the work.
In an address before the com-
bined freshman Air Force ROTC
cadet class at the University, Prof.
Fifield stressed the political im-
plications of geography and agreed
with the Air Force that today's of.-
ficer must be well versed in this
subject because of the global mis-
sion of .the USAF.
He also applied some geopoliti-
cal ideas to the American foreign
policy of containment, pointing
out that this policy is being car-
ried out more fully in Europe than
in the Far East.
The book contains ideas on po-
litical geography as expounded by
geopoliticians in the U.S., Great
Britain and Germany. The policy
of containment, Prof. Fifield
brought out, is the exact policy re-
commended by several famous geo-
politicians in the past.
IFC To Settle
Book Accounts
Students who left used textbooks
with the IFC Book Excaange
should drop by the Exchange and
check on their books, Norm Tho-
mas, '53, manager of the exchange
announced yesterday.
Those wishing to retain title to
their books must notify the ex-
change by the end of next week,
Thomas said. Otherwise the books
become the property of the ex-
change. If the books have not been
sold they may be reclaimed or left
for sale next semester, he contin-
Thomas also requested that any
students who left books with the
exchange last spring and have
changed their address since then
notify the exchange. Cards may be
sent to the IFC Book Exchange,

Michigan Union.
The exchange will be open Mon-
day from 1 to 4 p.m. in Rm. 3-B
of the Union. It will close Tuesday.
