SUNDAY, APRIL 20, 2952




The lifting of the freeze on new
TV permits this week will sooni
produce big developments in all
phases of the industry.
In Detroit where three non-
educational channels were open,
WJR and CKLW have applied for
stations in addition to the UAW-
CIO. If WJR gets a channel they
are practically assured of being
hooked up with CBS-TV. This
would leave Columbia's present
local affiliate, WJBK-TV with only
Dumont, sadly lacking in glamor-
ous nightime chain shows. The
result' will probably be stepped up
competition on the local program
level, always a healthy sign in
radio and TV.
If CKLW is granted a station
it will probably be a big link in
the expansion of Mutual's infant
video net. If this comes through
it will mean five major networks,
more than havedever been able
to survive i radio.
On the non-commercial side, the
proposed state network of educa-
tional stations would really be a
boon to all colleges in the area,
both in spreading culture and pub-
lic relations and in offering prac-
tical training and experience to
students in television. Look for
Serkin Slated
lo PlayHere
In his fifth performance at the
University, pianist Rudolf Serkin
will be heard in the final Choral
Union Series concert this season
at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday at Hill Audi-
Serkin is known throughout
world music centers although still
in his middle forties. "Life says he
"looks like a scholar and plays like
an angel."
The musical highlight of Ser-
kin's University concert will be the
first Choral Union Series perform-
ance of the difficult "Hammerka-
vier" Sonata by Beethoven. Also
included in his concert will be se-
lections by Bach, Busoni, Weber,
and Chopin.
Originally scheduled to play in
a concert here with violinist Adolf
Busch, Serkin developed a great
musical friendship with Busch,
gave a group of sonata concerts
with him and later married his
Even at the age of four Serkin
was able to play the piano and at
twelve made his debut with the Vi-
enna Symphony Orchestra. How-
ever, his family and teachers saw
to it that Serkin had a well round-
ed musical training before he
started his concert career.

the University to be the big gun
in this program as it has proved
to be in educational television on
the commercial stations.
THE NOISE, the thrills and
everything but the color of the
1952 Michigras will be previewed
on the University TV Hour at 1
p.m. today. Interviews and a tour
of booths will highlight the tele-
tour direct from Barbour Gym-
Prof. Leo Goldberg will begin
his new series of lectures on the
Solar System on the show today.
This serjes has the largest ad-
vance registration of any course
offered in the two year history
of the University program.
Party Finance will be Prof. Sam-
uel Eldersveld's subject on the
political parties lecture.

TWO RECENT additions to'the
WUOM schedule pool the talents
of students and faculty to discuss
current issues. This week, "Inter-
national Roundtable will consider
the Indian elections and their sig-
nificance at 8 p.m. Friday and
"Literature and Society" will take
up the teaching of literature. In-
;identally WUOM's script editor
Bill Bender has returned after a
stretch with the army in Korea.
-* * *
Presidential aspirants Estes Ke-
fauver, Richard Russel, Robert
Kerr, Earl Warren and Harold
Stassen will all appear on the
same program together when they
tangle on the question of economic
controls over "Candidates and Is-
sues" 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, WJR.
Tallulah Bankhead's "The Big
Show" will bow out for the season
by presenting a scene from the
current broadway hit "I Am a
Camera," by John Van Druten.

Honor Old
Part Men
DETROIT - UP) - About 1,200
Michigan Democrats paid $25 a
plate to eat chicken last night in
memory of those two stalwart
early-day leaders of the party,
Presidents Jefferson and Jackson.
And, with President Truman out
of the present race, those two
old-timers came in for as much
attention as anyone.
Making the lack of a big hero
even more noticeable was the with-
drawal this week of Gov. Adlai
Stevenson of Illinois from consid-
eration for the presidential nom-
ination. Stevenson reportedly was
Mr. Truman's own choice to suc-
ceed him.
Subsequent reports that Presi-
dent Truman now leans toward
W. Averell Harriman for the nom-
ination has left most Michigan
Democrats cold, especially those
closely allied with organized labor.
* * *
EVERYTHING seemed to hinge
on Governor Williams' ultimate
statement as to his own plans. If
he runs for a third term as Michi-
gan's chief executive, he will have
to file by June 17 under the new
early primary law.
The Governor has almost solid
backing from Michigan Democrats
as a "Favorite Son" presidential
candidate, but has not taken tlais
too seriously. The Stevenson with-
drawal hung an even larger ques-
tion mark over his head because
many northern Democrats are be-
lieved to be only luke-warm to the
candidacy of Sen. Estes Kefauver,
the Tennessee crime-buster.
But Williams' former law part-
ner, Hicks Griffiths, and former
Gov. Murray D. Van Wagoner con-
tinued to plump for Kefauver.
Griffiths is Kefauver's midwest
coordinator and Van Wagoner his
Michigan manager.

If the Presidential elections had
been held on February 29, 1948,
it would have been a virtual toss-
up between Thomas Dewey and
Arthur Vandenberg, former Sena-
tor from Michigan, according to
a Daily poll of student opinion
taken at that time.
Staff members were sent out to
query fellow students on their
Presidential choices. Dewey sand
Vandenberg ran neck and neck,
but Progressive Henry Wallace,
who appealed to the liberal col-
lege students, was close on the
heels of the two front runners.
* * *
INCUMBENT Truman followed
next to Wallace, and, far behind
the leaders, came Stassen, Taft,
Warren and Eisenhower-in that
Even after running mates Tru-
man and Barkley and Dewey and
Warren were selected, it looked
as if there was going to be some
wild guessing done at the local
For according to another spot
check made by The Daily, only
about one quarter of local resi-
dents contacted could name six
of the many presidential and vice-
presidential candidates.
The poll, taken at the corner of
Huron and State streets, revealed
that 24 per cent of the persons
contacted could name six*candi-
dates, 18 per cent could give five,
24 per cent could name four, 13
per cent knew three, and 10 per
cent remembered only two.

HOWEVER, students were try-
ing to develop more political con-
sciousness. In early October, the

center of the Diag was turned into
an impromptu political debating
ground, when what began as a
petition drive opposing the draft
became an apparently spontaneous
demonstration of political inter-
All shades of opinion were
represented in the mass debate,
with Democrats, Republicans,
Wallacites, Socialists and Com-
munists all contributing to the
Two months of intensive cam-
paigning were climaxed by final
pre-election meetings late in Oc-
tober, and torchlight parades,
speeches, parties and rallies claim-
ed the campus spotlight until

Election Eve. A straw vote in
West Quadrangle on November 1
gave Dewey the Presidency at a
walk, with Truman and Norman
Thomas close together in the back
But, despite the elaborate pre-
parations, election whoopee in Ann
Arbor on the big night was at a
minimum, as the city settled down
in small groups to chew fingernails
and sweat it out.
When it was all over, campus
reaction ranged from deep gloom
to wild exuberation, but underly-
ing all sentiments was an almost
unanimous feeling of surprise,
which nearly equalled that of the
national poll takers.

Spring Cleaning

FACE LIFTING-Come Spring, the University's fancy lightly
turns toward fixing up the campus, and the SL Building at 122
S. Forest is one of the first on the list to get its exterior beauti-
fied. Peeling paint is being replaced by new shingles. Converted
from a nurses' home in 1950, SL members are going a step
further in fixing up their lodging and yesterday morning was
spent in painting the interior.
