Michigan Erosion Damage

The program, originally open
only to undergraduate students,

The first would be in Paris

Quantico, Virginia, would be the
scene of the second summer's ac-

ian students last October. It now
numbers 14 members - eight
Ukranians, five Canadians and one
American of Ukranian descent.
None of the Ukranian students
wish to go back to their native land
as long as it is dominated by the
Soviet Union, president of the new
club Zinowij Melnyk, Grad., said.
WHEN THE GERMANS occur-
pied Ukrania, they deported young
people to Germany to work. After
the allied liberation the Soviet Un-
ion began high pressuring the de-
portees to return to the countries
under the shadow of Russia, ac-
cording to Mykola Dumyk. "Many
committed suicide rather than re-
turn," he said.
The eight University students
who now belong to the Ukran-
ian club managed to avoid the
return trip to the Soviet Union.
They either spent the days after
the liberation in displaced per-
sons' camps or in a Ukranian
school in Germany.
Those who refused to return- to
the Soviet Union lost their citizen-
ship and are now, stateless. How-
ever, they are in the process of
becoming United States' citizens.
This group of students with no
country to truly call their own
banded together to promote the
culture of the Ukraine and inform
Americans on conditions behind
the Iron Curtain.
"Americans do not realize
what it is like to live in a coun-
try that is under the influence
of the Soviet Union," Melkny
said. There is one secret police-
man to every 15 people and no
one can trust his neighbor," he
"Ukranians take a great pride
in freedom. We have always re-
sisted those who have tried to
occupy our land," Dumyk said.
Although all the members of
the Ukranian Students Club ex-
press the desire to return some-
day to their homeland, they all
firmly feel that day will never
come until the Ukraine is free
from the dominance of Russia.

An increase in erosion damage
to Michigan's Great Lakes shore-
line was predicted yesterday by
Prof. Ernest F. Brater, of the hy-
draulic engineering department.
The Fund for the Advancement

Basing his statement on a two-
day study of the Lake Michigan
coast made with Dale W. Grang-

From research on the water
levels of past years Prof. Brater
said that "Peak levels ought 'to
come more freqeuntly in the future
than in the past. It is quite pos-
sible that levels could stay up for
two to four years more."

IN VIEW OF this pessimistic
outlook, he emphasized the need
for the continuation of research on
the laboratory level.

During a heated question-and-
answer period following his talk,
Taft reaffirmed his praise of Sen.
McCarthy and the House Un-
American Activities Committee.
His view that "McCarthy's proj-
ect in dramatizing the danger of
Communism to the State Depart-
ment was a worthy public service"
met with mixed audience reaction.
And his emphatic belief that
the "Un-American Activities
Committee has done the great-
est service to this country that
any committee has ever done"
brought strong objections along
In answers to other student
questions, Sen. Taft was in favor
of developing government flood
control projects within "reason-
able expense," but opposed to con-
tinuing Voice of America broad-
casts under present plans.
LOCAL TAFT supporters had
an opportunity to meet the GOP
Presidential hopeful at a lunch-
eon in the League following his
speech. In his post-luncheon re-
marks he again emphasized that
the real issue in the campaign is

vs. more government and more
At a Lansing speech immed-
iately following his Ann Arbor
appearance, the energetic sen-
ator echoed his demand that
U. S. air power be given "No. 1
priority" in order to protect
America's "liberty and peace."
Taft attacked present military
policy for what he called "an old-
fashioned obsession for ground
warfare." Together with present
domestic policies, continuation of
present military practices threat-
ens the United States with both a
depression and socialism, he said.
The Senator left Michigan last
night for Massachusetts.
