Lederle Suggests Basis
For Election Reform

Increased emphasis on publicity
of election expenditures rather
than fixed limits on campaign
spending was seen as a basis of
real federal election reform by
Prof. John W. Lederle, Director of
the Institute of Public Adminis-

Jackson Riots
End; All Eight
Guards Freed
(Continued from page 1)
THE FAMILIES of the guards
greeted the eight men in a wave
of hysteria and emotion. While
flash bulbs popped, women-some
with babies in their arms-rushed
S16 the men. The guards were vis-
ibly torn with emotion and strain,
and for a moment, few of them
were able to speak.
Aterwards, however, Guard
George A. Brown said that they
were treated "very well."
Another guard, in an emotional
moment, said that Earl Ward "was
a great man."
The flaming rampage which be-
gan Sunday night ended with one
convict dead, eleven injured, and
over $2,500,000 damage. No prison
personnel or policemen sustained
more than superficial injuries.
Governor G. Mennen Williams
arrived in Jackson after the re-
lease of the guards. "I came
down," the governor said "to pay
my respects to and congratulate
the men who did the work of
bringing the prison back to good
order without the bloodshed which
appeared to be impending."
Teachers Hold
Annual Meet
A busy day has been planned
for the high school teachers at-
tending the annual Michigan
Schoolmasters' Club Conference
' ollowing registration, there will
be a business meeting at 9 a.m.
at the Rackham Lecture Hall and
a general session which will hear
an address by Henry Ford II,
president of Ford Motor Co., on

A reception and dinner will take
place at 5:30 p.m. in the Union
Ballroom where Vice-President
Marvin L. Niehuss, Lee M. Thurs-
ton, superintendent of public in-
struction, and Dean Emeritus
James B. Edmonson will address
the group.
Positions Due For
'S3 Union Opera
Positions now open for petition
on the executive committee of next
year's Union Opera are programs,
promotions, music and production
committee chairmen and the gen-
eral secretary, according to Jim
Yobst, '52, general chairman of
the 1952 Opera.
The petitions should be address-
ed to General Chairman, Michi-
gan Union Opera and must be de-
livered to the Union's main desk
by 5 p.m. Tuesday, Yobst said.

advisory capacity to the Senate
Sub-Committee on Privileges and
Elections which is currently inves-
tigating illegal campaign activities
in order to recommend legislative
Although the committee has not
yet written a new corrupt prac-
tices act, it has been soliciting sug-
gestions and has heard testimony
from various party leaders. "Even-
tually they will write a bill which
will improve conditions, though
not eliminate the evils of money in
elections," Prof. Lederle predicted.
* * *
THE FOLLOWING provisions
might be embodied in such a bill,
he 'said:R
1) Upward revision or elimi-
nation of ceiling limitations on
campaign expenditures by can-
didates or national political
2) Provision to make candidates
personally responsible for expen-
ditures and literature used on
their behalf.
3) Extension of the act to in-
clude all primaries and nomi-
nating conventions.
4) Broadening of definition of
political committees to include all
groups which influence federal
elections. (Under the present act,
a political committee is defined
only as one which is attached to
the national committee or is op-
erating in two states.)
5) Extension of act to cover ac-
tivities of Presidential and Vice-
Presidential candidates in seeking
both nomination and election.

BUT PROBES of election fraud
charges from the 1950 campaign
have taken the committee's time
and prevented it from achieving
the primary aim of real remedial
legislation, Prof. Lederle said.
Under investigation were the
Maryland election which saw
Democratic Senator Millard Ty-
dings defeated, the Ohio cam-
paign from which Sen. Robert
A. Taft emerged victorious and
the Hanley letter which figured
in New York's senatorial elec-
In addition the group has had to
consider Sen. Benton's (D-Conn.)
resolution to expel Sen. Joseph
McCarthy (R-Wis.) from the Sen-
Sen. McCarthy would not an-
swer Benton's charges before the
committee and challenged its jur-
isdiction over the matter. Through
a technical maneuver on the Sen-
ate floor, committee members suc-
ceeded in defending their juris-
diction, Prof. Lederle added.

IN MARYLAND a widely circu-
lated composite photograph show-
ed Senator Tydings chatting with
Earl Browder, Communist Party
leader in the United States. As a
result of the Maryland investiga-
tion, a scathing indictment of
composite photographs and scurri-
lous literature was issued by the
Senate group,
Charges of campaign fund ex-
penditures beyond legal limits
were hurled by both sides in the
Ohio senatorial race, but the com-
mittee has not yet made public
their report on the election.
Recently the group has heard
testimony of radio and television
executives which has emphasized
the huge cost of running election
campaigns, and difficulties of
making time for political messages
at the expense of regular pro-

A small plot just behind the
University Museums building is
the site of one of the Museums'
most lively exhibits-the zoo.
More officially known as the
University Museums' Animal
House, the circular building which
houses the 'animals is the home
of 16 assorted wild-life represen-
tatives and provides a source of
study and entertainment for hun-
dreds of people each week.
* * *
INCLUDED on the current
boarder list are two black bears,
10 racoons, including three in-
fants, a badger, a skunk (deodor-
ized) and two foxes.
They all live in apparent feli-
city in the small seven-pen den:
which makes up almost the en-
tire physical plant of the zoo.
The only other structure for the
menagerie is a small moat, the
"Turtle Stadium," off one side of
the building. During warm weather
the moat is filled with non-poi-
sonous Michigan snakes and vari-
ous turtle types. According to Jim
Mosemann, '52, the keeper, the
snakes will be out as soon as he
can catch them.
The animal house, the gift of
an anonymous donor in 1929, was
originally built with the idea of
providing some special entertain-
ment for children confined at the
University Hospital.
At that time, the crippled chil-
dren's ward was located in the
ROTC Building on N. University
and the children were able to tra-
vel to the zoo on nice days with-
out much difficulty.
