Territorial Students Hit

Stat hood for Alaska and Ha-,
waii has been too long in coming,
students from those territories de-
clared yesterday.
' Commenting on the recurring
campaign in Congress to add the
forty-nintf' and fiftieth states to
the Union, the students queried
agreed that the legislature has
been unjust in bantering the ques-
tion around withou' taking action.

"IT IS ABSURD for Hawaii to
have no part in determining the
laws that bind it," George Ariyo-
shi, '52L, said.
"We are affected by the draft
and tax laws like the states, yet
we have no voice in the govern-
ment," Arlyoshi added.
Statehood would put Hawaii in
y a better position economically,
Henry Yokayoma commented. "We
could get higher prices on sugar
and pineapple. Although this may
File for Draft
Test at Oence,
All eligible students who 'intend
to take the Selective Service Col-
lege Qualification Test in 1952
should file applications at once
for the April 24 examination, Se-
lective Service National Head-
quarters has announced.
Application blanks and bulle-
tins of information may be ob-
tained at any local draft board.
Although applications were avail-
able at the Administration Bldg.
last year, the service will not be
provided this year, according to
Gordon L. Hansen, Selective Serv-
ice counselor.
Students should mail their ap-
plication in the special envelope
provided not later than midnight,
March 10. Early filing was urged
by Selective Service Headquarters.
The results of the test will. be
reported to the student's local
draft board for use in considering
his deferment.
Under the present law, local
boards are not obliged to consider
a passing mark as sufficient
grounds for deferment. The grade
is only one of the factors which
draft boards consider in deter-
mining a student's classification.
R...evived SDA
Group Hears
Prof. Slosson
Sp, akin before the first meet-
ing of the Newly reactivated Stu-
dents for Democratic Action, Prof.
Preston Slosson of the history de-
partment last night justified lib-
eralism as the most certain road
to progress,'whatever the goals.
"You can't even make good
bombs without freedom of
thought," Prof. Slosson remarked.
Earlier in his speech he defined
liberalism as including personal
liberty, as found in bills of, rights;
economic liberty, which no longer
means laissez-faire; and political
The revived SDA group is affill-
ated with the national liberal or-
ganization, Americans for Demo-
cratic Action.
Another comparatively new
group to campus, the Society for
Peaceful Alternatives, decided last
night to send two sets of letters
expressing their opinions against
UMT and in favor of UN actions
toward peace.

"HAWAII HAS been a part of
the United States for a long time,
but we don't feel like a real part
of it unless we have the right to
vote," Mary Naito, '52, said.
The problem of ungranted
statehood not only poses eco-
nomic and psychological prob-
lems, but also political dissen-
tion, one student pointed out.
Under the present system the
Governor of Hawaii is appointed
by the President of the United
States and approved by the Sen-
"Because the territory is Repub-
lican and the Governor is a Demo-
cratic appointee, there is usually
a conflict between him and the
legislature," a n o t h e r Hawaiian
student commented.

ALONG WITH the issue of Ha-
waii periodically comes the ques-
tion of statehood for Alaska.
John Borbridge, '52, of'Juneau,
Alaska, gave "a big yes" in favor
of Alaskan statehood.
"Al a skan physical resources
would be more easily converted to
their economic advantage, if in-
vestors could deal with individuals
instead of government burocracy,"
he said.
Borbridge believes the popula-
tion of Alaska will increase with an
increase of production of natural
resources. "Now is the time for
statehood to come instead of some
time in the distant future," he
"There is a general desire in
Alaska for a concrete form of self-
determination," Borbridge con-

Three Urge
Care in Use
Three witnesses before a House
committee yesterday urged cau-
tion in the addition of fluorides
to drinking water as a means of
checking tooth decay.
They said the chemical sub-
stances, which Ann Arbor water
contains, apparently do sometimes
prevent decay ,of children's teeth,
but that they also may cause mot-
tled tooth enamel and may have
other undesirable effects.
BUT HERE Dr. Henry F.
Vaughan, dean of the public
health school, supported the use
of flourine. He said, recent stud-
ies have been satisfactory to public
health authorities, the public
health service, the American Me-
dical Association and the Michi-
gan Department of Health.

A University television expert
and a political scientist expressed
varied opinions on the effect of
television on national politics in
this election year, but both agreed
it will cause some changes.
"The effect of television on the
popularity of public figures has
been demonstrated by the rise in
prominence of Rudolph Halley
and Estes Kefauver, Prof. Garnett
Garrison pointed out.

PROF. GARRISON, who heads
the University television depart-
ment, said that at first it was
feared that only the handsomest
people would be effective on tele-
vision, but it soon became appar-
ent that the camera can really
put across a person's true person-
ality to the viewers. This will aid
some politicians and hinder oth-
ers, he commented.
"This campaign will see more

MICROFILM MAGIC-A student reads a precious manuscript
via a microfilm machine in the general library. The growing
microfilm collection in the library saves storage spate, preserves
precious manuscripts and old periodicals for permanent use.
'U' Microfilm Collection
Keeps Students in Dark

There is a room in the general
library where everyone reads in
the dark.
It is the cubicle set aside on
the fourth floor for the microfilm
collection, one of the lesser known
features of the library.

UP IN THE small quarters
which house shelves of film and
almost twenty microfilm ma-
chines, students and faculty can
go to investigate old periodicals,
manuscripts, doctoral theses and
more recent copies of the New
York Times and Ann ArborNews.
They can do so without cart-
ing and manipulating the bulky
bound copies of once-current
literature, or without fear of
tearing a time-beaten manu-
It is the two factors of film size
(a reel takes up about three inches
of storage space) and permanence
which has led to the continual
growth of the library's microfilm
collection. It was begun on a small
scale 15 years ago, when some
doctoral theses and old papers
were put on film.
Since then the collection has
grown to include innumerable
precious manuscripts, seldom-read
reference perodicals, and the
most recent additions, microfilms
of the 1951 editions of the New
York Times and Ann Arbor News.

AT LEAST one rarity, a film of
some medieval British manu-
scripts, is included in the collec-
tion. They were copied during the
last war in London and sent to
the United States for preserva-

/"Storage space is too dear- and
upkeep too great to continue bind-
ing little-read periodicals," Prof.
Warner G. Rice, library director
explained. A microfilm can be
made up for the same approxi-
mate price as a bound volume,
but the storage cost is almost
a hundred per cent less than that
for bound volumes."
/An early microfilm process
was known as far back as 1870,
when, during the seige of Paris,
messages on minute film were
flown into Paris by carrier
pigeon and projected on a wall.
Merely a process of shrinking
the printed page onto film, micro-
filming can be done in any
photographer's lab for a fairly
high cost. But in specialized labs
the films can be made for as
little as three cents for a print

While administrators and li-
brarians at the Library are per-
fectly content with the microfilm,
users do have one complaint.

of seeing a lovely chorine go'

fully noted.

The sister (call her Maggy I for the

and left the letter on his Desk.
His roommate spotted it and being a

Just saw "Dear Maggy". So he addressed
an envelope to Maggy I at Northamp,
slapped on a stamp and dropped the Epis-
