May Testify
On 'Aid' Bill
Clay Predicts
General's Return
By The Associated Press
An Eisehhower-for - President
backer said in Paris yesterday that
if Congress really needs the Gen-
eral to testify on foreign aid, he
will return "no matter what it
might cost him politically."
Gen. Lucius D. Clay made the
prediction. He and Paul G. Hoff-

Mahon (D-Conn.) said he expects

foreign aid bill.
Although many Eisenhower
supporters want him to return
and fight for the nomination,
some of them oppose the move
to cal him back for testimony.
They contend it might embar-
rass him.
The General has said he will ac-

THE QUEEN and her royal en-

Hof a 400 member quorum had
proved an insuperable barrier
since 1942.
THE FOUR amendments pro-
vide that:
1) The constitution may be
amended by a two-thirds majority
of Union members voting on the
issue with the vote taken by refer-
endum at an all-campus election.
2) Another vice-president will
be added to the Union Board of
Directors, giving students a 10-9
majority on the Board.
3) One vice-president will be
elected from the combined
schools of medicine and den-
tistry and one from the Law
School, with the five others be-
ing chosen at large by the re-
maining schools and colleges.
4) The ranking male member of
the Student Legislature will re-j
place the chairman of the Men's
Judiciary on the Board.

TWO OF THE provisions, con-
cerning the new amending pro-
cedure and Student Legislature
representation op the Union
Board of Directors, will take effect
immediately. The two concerning
the number of Union vice-presi-
dents and the method of electing
them will go into effect during
the 1953 spring elections.
The voting itself was conduct-
ed in an efficient and orderly
manner, John Merow, '52, Men's
Judiciary chairman said. "Once
a quorum was established by the
issuance of 400 ballots, voting
was allowed. The discussion had
no bearing on the balloting and
memberswere allowed to leave
when they wanted to," Merow
John Kathe, '52P, Union presi-
dent was highly pleased with the
results and the interest the mem-
bers showed in the matter. Kathe
felt that the amendment "would
serve their purpose in bringing the
Union closer to its members and
the members closer to the Union."
A breakdown of the voting
showed that the change in amend-
ing procedure received the largest
support, winning by a vote of
The other amendments all
passed with only 40 or 50 negative

corded on the revision placing an

President Harlan H. Hatcher

Chicago today to pass judgment
on the athletic reform movement
instigated by Michigan State Col-

Big Ten athletic directors and
faculty representatives met yes-

presidents. The terms were not
revealed, but it was presumed that
they came close to the "Hannah

reception by the assembled presi-
President Hatcher declined to
comment on what his position
would be on the proposed reforms.
The ACE recommendations
sometimes referred to as the
"Seven Pillars of Wisdom," call
1) A ban on out-of-season prac-
tices and postseason competition.
2) Institutional control of ath-
letics and aid to athletes.
.3) Equal admission rules for
athletes and other students; nor-
mal progress toward a degree.
4) No contact of prospective
athletes by coaches; no tryouts
or transportation expenses for
prospective athletes.
5) No aid to exceed normal col-
lege expenses; no aid contingent
solely on athletic ability.
6) No - freshman competition..
7) Competition against schools
with similar policies.

County Conventions
Set for Tuesday Night
The process of picking the man who Michigan Republicans hope
will be the next President of the United States begins this week with all
88 GOP county conventions set for Tuesday night.
In 82 outstate counties-including Washtenaw-and six Detroit
area congressional districts-local Republicans will send 1,500 dele-
gates to the April 5 state GOP convention in Detroit.
* * * ,*
THE STRENGTH of the two leading contenders for Michigan's
46 votes at the GOP national convention July 7 in Chicago, Gen.
Dwight D. Eisenhower and Sen. Robert A. Taft, will probably remain
uncertain until after the state convention. This stems from a Michigan
law which prevents county conventions from binding their delegates
to support a specific nominee at the state meet.
But it seemed virtually certain last night that Washtenaw
Republicans will approve a motion endorsing Eisenhower's can-
didacy when they select state convention delegates at 8 p.m. Tues-
day in Ann Arbor's County Courthouse.
In spite of statements from Detroit Attorney John Feikens, head
of the state "Ike" organization, that he will be satisfied if "open-
minded" delegates are chosen, it was learned that Washtenaw Eisen-
hower backers will be lining up county convention delegates for their
man right up until the Tuesday night meeting.
SHOULD THE "IKE" FORCES be able to push an endorsement
motion through the county gathering it will mark the first time that


Sawyer Predicts Atomic Powered City

# * # *


Atomic power plants may be
generating electricity for Ann Ar-
bor homes ."in the not-too-distant
future," acording to Dean Ralph
A. Sawyer of the Horace H. Rack-
ham School of Graduate Studies.
"The actual production of 100
kilowatts of electric power at the
Atomic Energy Commission's ex-
perimental reactor station in tiny
Arco, Idaho, has made many of
the theories of peacetime use of
the atom a reality," the Phoenix
Project's director declared.
LIGHTS HAD an atomic twin-
kle for a few days recently in Arco,j
which served as a Naval gun test-
ing grounds during the war.
"The atomic power was har-

for a 500,000 kilowatt atomic .pile
to yield electric power commer-
cially as well as fissionable mater-
ials of the type now being pro-
duced at Hanford, Washington.
Any plant they constructed,
however, would probably be placed
well outside of the city limits to
minimize the danger to Detroit if
the pile happened to blow up. An
explosion would not only cause
destruction in the immediate vi-
cinity but might also pollute the
water supply of the whole area.
As a matter of fact Arco was
picked as the experimental site
because the complete lack of
natural drainage removed the
danger of radioactive contami-

and rivers, the dean commented.
