Prof. Preston Slosson of the his-
tory department last night told
the crowd at a local Jefferson-
Jackson Day dinner that Demo-
crats can offer voters a choice
between a definite stand and "no
policy at all."
"You look in vain for a real
alternative or a consistent policy
in the Republican party," Prof.
Slosson noted. "But on every is-
sue, you find Democrats in the
state and nation taking a definite
PROF. SLOSSON spoke before
a banquet for campus Young
Democrats. Stressing campaign is-
sues rather than personalities, he
attacked Republican stands on
foreign policy, "creeping social-
ism" and government economy.
Republican foreign policy,
Prof. Slosson said, aims at
doubled results with diminished
funds." Citing Democratic party
unity on foreign policy, Prof.
Slosson hit the Republican party
for their "fatal division on for-
.The GOP issue of "creeping
socialism," he said, "sounds sinis-
ter but doesn't'mean a.thing."
THE REPUBLICAN stand on
government economy stresses
economy in general, which every-
one favors, rather than particular
methods of attaining it, Prof.
Because of the Republican inter-
nal divisions, Prof. Slosson thought
that Gen. Eisenhower is sure to
offend either the right or left wing
of the party when he begins cam-
He concluded that the duty of
Democratic party members should
be to "convey to voters that they
should have a right to choose be-
tween responsibility and irrespon-
sibility in government."

Rare Dancing Girl Find
Home in 'U' Museum
* * *
By MIKE WOLFF
A rare sculptured portrait of a
dancing girl which once adorned
the tomb of an ancient Egyptian
nobleman has been acquired by
the Museum of Archaeology.
The limestone relief belonged to
a vast collection formed by M. A.
Mansoor of Cairo and Heliopolis
before it was obtained by the
Museum at an auction at the
Parke-Bernet galleries in New
ACCORDING TO Prof. Enoch
Peterson, the Museum's director,
the tomb from which the relief
comes is believed to be the sole
source of this type of portrait.
Prof. Peterson added that the
Achaeology Museum is the only
one he knows of that possesses
this 18th dynasty (1400-1377 B.C.)
"non-stylized" art form.
The dancing girl is unusual
because the Egyptians of tha.t
period invariably reserved the
walls of their tombs for images
of royalty. Prof. Peterson point-
ed out that the free and easy
style of the portrait shows the
girl was not' a member of the
To many people, the archaeolo-
gist continued, the style of the
portrait represents_ the peak of
Egyptian art. Belonging to an era
when Egypt politically and eco-
nomically ruled the East, the life-
like sculpture shows a trend away
from the stiffness which many
people believe typical of Egyptian
The dancing girl was probably
part of a series of dancers on the
tomb's wall, Prof. Peterson sug-
gested. Explaining the reason for
such a portrait, he noted that the
Egyptians usually decorated their
tombs with scenes from their lives.
Ann Arbor is playing host today
to more than 600 high school sing-
ers for the southern half of the
Michigan State Vocal Association's

the Union and other University
Ten soloists and three ensem-
bles groups are entered from Ann
Arbor High, and other area schools

Professors Thelma Lewis, Philip
Duey, Harold Haugh, Wayne Dun-
lap and Mary Fishburne, and Ar-
lene Sollenberger of the Univer-
sity school of music will serve as

LOW COST LEARNING:
Edmonson Hits Fraudulent Schools
MAROON SCHWINN BICYCLE - Good
condition. $20. Call Stu, 2-0805. )71.
"Bargain" educations completea
with engraved diploma, and at-
tached gold seals may be had for
the money at more than 1,000
fradulent schools existing in the
country today, former Dean James
B. Edmonson of the University
School of Education said yester-
As chairman of the National
Committee on Fraudulent Schools
and Colleges, Dean Edmonson
mentioned this in his report to
the National Education Associa-
tion meeting in Chicago.
He cited examples of what he
called the "underworld of Ameri-
can education." Edmonson cited
an institution in Chattanooga,
Tenn. which guarantees a degree-
hplder that he will become a "na-
tural generator, condenser and
storage battery of bio-phycho-
dynamics" besides being fully
qualified to ministerto person
suffering from everything from
nervous indigestion to imbecility.
ALTHOUGH THE committee
finds it impossible to even estimate
the annual income of the gradu-
ates of these institutions, Dean
Edmonson said he would "have no
reason to question the assertion
of an investigator that 'upwards of
25,000 phony psychologists are
operating in the United States'."
Such gyp schools turn out
Doctors of Divinity by mail in
the dozen lots. Reports received
by the committee indicated a
low-cost divinity school in New
York City which offered degrees
ranging in price from $1.25 to
$100. Within a two-year period,
the operators had cleaned up
According to Dean Edmonson,
the students who purchase these
worthless degrees seem about
equally divided between those who
do it knowingly for the purpose
of deceiving others and those who
honestly think it is of value.
A list of approved institutions
of higher learning is published
annually by the United States
Office of Education.
DEAN EDMONSON'S commit-
tee has been assisted by the work
of the House Select Committee to
Investigate Educational, Training
and Loan Guaranty Programs un-
der the GI Bill. In its 1952 report
this committee stated that the
greatest amount of fraud occurred
in the field of trade schools cater-
ing to the veteran student.
Although the American Associ-
ation of Theological Schools has
assisted by warning churches and
colleges against holders of fraudu-
lent degrees, the dean pointed out
He found out that i
and 60 cents to d
the committee's greatest obstacle
in cleaning up the academic skid
row is apathy on the part of the
states. Many state governments
make almost no attempt to estab-
lish educational qualifications.
Dean Edmonson stated that to
his knowledge, the State of Michi-
gan is free of these diploma mills.
