Open Meeting Controversy Moves
Towards Possible Compromise
The open meeting controversy moved towards a possible compro-
mise yesterday, as the Regents agreed to negotiate further with the
Representatives of the Michigan Press Association, which has
been leading a drive to open the meetings of the Board of Regents
and Michigan State College's State Board of Agriculture, discussed the
problem With the Regents at a luncheon before the Board's March
* * * *
THE REPORTEDLY amicable discussions centered around the
issue of admitting qualified reporters to the meetings as representa-
tiveis of the public.
i Satisfactory' progress was reported-and an MPA sub-
committee prepared to meet fur-

ther with the Regents to con-
tinue the, discussions.
The Regents were said to be in
full accord with the principle that
the public is entitled to full in-
4 formation regarding actions taken
at the meetings. But it was point-
ed out by some of the Regents
that three-fourths of the debate
at meetings dealt with material
which it would not be "in the pub-
lic interest" to have printed in
newspapers while in the discussion
IT WAS emphasized by the Re-
gents that at present all informa-
tion is made public after action
is taken.
It was felt after the meeting
that a compromise could be
worked out -- probably through
holding a press conference after
each session.
At Michigan State, where simi-
lar negotiations have been under-
way for a month, t has been re-
' ported that some such compro-
mise settlement may be in sight.
AFTER THE regular business
'meeting, which was, as per usual,
closed, it was announced that a
distinguished French composer,
Darius Milhaud, will be at the
University next year by virtue of
being selected Oliver Ditson Fel-
low for 1952.

Drama Season, featuring a se-
ries of well-known plays and top
actors every spring, has been
taken over by the University,
it was announced.
Henceforth, the name will be

ma Season." Previously, the dra-

Property Loss
Great; 200 Hurt
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. --)-
At least 113 persons were killed
by tornadoes which cut a long
swath through Arkansas and hit
neighboring sections of Tennessee
and Missouri.
More than 200 others were in-
jured. There was tremendous pro-
perty damage.
Ninety-nine were known dead
in Arkansas alone in the worst
disaster ever to strike the state.
Eight were killed in Tennessee and
six in Missouri.
* * *
ARKANSAS was raked by the
whirling, powerful winds from one
end of the state to the other.
All told, about 25 towns and
rural communities were hit by
the twisters. They hurled houses
off their foundations and tossed
victims about like match sticks.
The death-dealing winds hop-
scotched across Arkansas from the
southwest to the northeast, and
hit in west Tennessee and south-
east Missouri.
HARDEST HIT was the area
around Searcy, about 50 miles
northeast of Little Rock. Orval
Faubus, administrative assistant
to Gov. Sid McMath, reported 26
persons had been killed in that
area, and more than 100 injured.
Reports of new disaster areas
and additional dead came so fast
it was difficult to keep the casual-
ty counts up to date. The tornado
reports started late in the after-
noon and continued late into the

gained the impression that Chi-

Michigan's athletic policies and

The report opened with a
brief statement of finances and
revealed that once again foot-
ball and hockey were the only
varsity sports showing a profit
from operations.
Despite the fact that the Wol-
erines turned in their first losing
season on the gridiron in fifteen
years, a margin of $662,502.96 was
realized. That, plus a $4,761.71
profit turned in by Michigan's
NCAA Champion hockey team,
were the offsetting figures for de-
ficits in every other varsity sport
including basketball, baseball,
track and swimming.

WITH FINANCIAL details out

with an outline of varsity eligibil-
ity regulations which had recent-
ly been under fire from members

posed to eligibility for other cam-
