ANOTHER performance of the
carnival will be given tonight and
a special children's matinee is
planned for 2 p.m. The matinee
will include only rides and con-
cessions located outside of the
fieldhouse.
The field house was a bedlam
of hucksters, chorus girls, bubble
dancers and freaks lured the stu-
dents and townspeople into their
booths. Others milled outside to
take their turn on amusement
rides.
The first prize of the carnival,
a date with Miss DSR of De-
troit for May to IFC Ball went
unclaimed. Nobody turned in
the. total. of .300 .Michibucks
needed to win the date but prize
seekers will get another chance
tonight. Also unclaimed was the
Michigan blanket as the top
door prize.
Awards for the most workman-
like booth, the booth taking in
the most receipts and the one
drawing the largest crowd will
be announced tonight at the car-
nival. Judges for the booth con-
test are President Harlan Hatcher
and Regents Vera Baits and Ros-
coe Bonisteel.

Americans have some bad na-
tional habits to overcome-self-
righteousness, a tendency to ignore
the spirit of declared liberties, and
certain intolerances-before they
can reach a maturity commensur-
ate with their international status.
Alistair Cooke, chief American
correspondent for Enland's Man-
chester Guardian yesterday pre-
sented the University's 29th An-
nual Honors Convocation with this
view of "How to Wean an Ameri-
dan."

"INSTEAD OF looking on Eur-
ope as a picturesque breeding-

ground of first Americans, and a
continent well lost, you will have
to learn to make new ties with
that continent and to live again
with Europeans as equals.
"This may sound very un-
American to some of you. But
much that now passes for Ameri-
canism, indeed the fetish of the
word itself, is no more than the
bawling of a child that cannotj
bear to leave the nursery,"
Cooke said.
Himself a naturalized American
citizen, Cooke pointed out that
Europeans are generally unmoved

many students and faculty, when
Cooke asserted that the right of
assembly should not be limited
"to people who think as you do. It
means the right of silence and
attention, in any public place or
hall, for unpopular, even repulsive,
opinions."
The speaker, author of several
books, including "Generation on
Trial," and his recently published
"One Man's. America," w~s intro-

Hatcher congratulated the honor

their achievements would not re-

other campus events, those
achievements still represented the
primary goal of the University.

The go-ahead signal was given
for preparation of final plans for
the proposed new $1,000,000 wo-
men's swimming pool by the
Board of Regents yesterday at
their April meeting.
The swimming pool is the first
part oft a projected $2,500,000
women's athletic building, to be
built with funds from the Board
in Control of Intercollegiate Ath-
letics.
THE STRUCTURE, which is to
have a seating capacity of 794
alongside the pool, will be built
on the southeast corner of Forest
and N. University, across the street
from the present Women's Ath-
letic Bldg.
First announcement that the
building was being planned
came over a year ago, but thereE
has since been some difficulty!

stay within the $1.000,000 esti-
mate.
No date for construction has yet
been set.
Architects will also get under-
way with plans for the remodeling
and rehabilitation program at
University Hospital. The State
Legislature recently appropriated
$16,000 to begin planning the
$5,000,000 modernization program'
which will extend over several
years.
THE REGENTS also reaffirmed
existing policies in renting Uni-
versity Terrace apartments, a
housing project for married stu-
dents completed in May, 1947.
Veterans only may rent the

iod to support a field station at
Okayama, Japan, for the Univer-
sity's enter for Japanese Studies.
The remainder of the grant
will go for the maintenance of1
an Institute on the Linguistic
Approach to the Teaching of
Latin the next two summer ses-
sions. The project will be han-
dled by Waldo E. Sweet, a mem-
ber of the faculty of William
Penn Charter School, a prepara-
tory school near Philadelphia. ,
A total of $50,000 in two grants
was accepted from L. J. Mont-
igomery of Battle Creek for medical
research.

Of Law, Atomic Energy
''There is an intimate relationship between the law profession
and the new industrial applications of atomic energy," Gordon E.
Dean, chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission, told the Law
Club's 24th annual Founders Day program last night.
Speaking in the Club's spacious dining hall, Dean discussed the
legal problems of atomic energy in relation to the present Atomic
Energy Act and possible peacetime uses of the atom.
Dean, who has just returned from the Nevada atomic tests,
felt there was little need for an immediate major change in the

Steel Brands
Truman Act
As Shocking
OPS Clears Way
For Price Hike
WASHINGTON-(A')-The steel
industry's challenge of President
Truman's seizure order is now in
the hands of Federal District
Judge David A. Pine, after the in-
dustry's attorneys yesterday bit-
terly assailed the move as anas-
sertion of kingly powers alien to
democratic government.
Judge Pine promised a quick de-
cision, possible within a few days,
on the industry's request for a
temporary injunction over throw-
ing Mr. Truman's April 8 seizure.
Regardless of how he rules, an ap-
peal probably will be filed either
by the industry or the government.
THE GOVERNMENT'S conten-
tion that the courts lack author-
ity to strike down Mr. Truman's
move was vigorously attacked by
the attorneys.
And Judge Pine at one point
asked the chief government law-
yer if he was trying to say the
government couldn't function
within the Constitution.
"Do you assail the efficacy of
the government under the consti-
tution?" he asked.
"Not at all, your honor," replied
the attorney, Holmes Baldrige.
It was Baldridge, an assistant
attorney general, who told the
court: "It is our position that the
President is accountable only to
the country, and the decisions of
the President are conclusive."
VARIOUS industry attorneys re-
plied: "shocking . . . where are
the limits? . . . a royal preroga-
tive . . . contrary to all accepted
American democratic principles of
government."
A few hours after the hearing
ended, the government cleared
the way for the steel industry to
get a price increase averaging
$3 a ton on top of prices which
now average about $110 a ton.
The order is effective May 1.
Director Ellis Arnall of the Of-
fice of Price Stabilization said the
steel companies are not entitled to
any more under present policy.
The industry has estimated its

President Truman's seizure of
the steel industry opposes the
principle of economic freedom
which is thehbasis of material
progress in this country, Henry
Ford II, president of Ford Motor
Company, said yesterday at the
general session of the Michigan
Schoolmasters' Club.
"When the American people ac-
cepted economic controls after
Korea," Ford said, "I'm sure they
expected that we would retain our
philosophy of economic freedom.
But we were wrong."
HITTING AT Truman's action
as being arbitrary and coercive, he
said it strikes a blow'which may
prove fatal to collective bargain-
ing.
"When free men are no longer
encouraged - or compelled - to

resolve their differences through
honest and sincere bargaining,
we have gone a long way toward

surrender that ended four days of
mutiny at Southern Michigan Pri-
son Thursday drew a public re-

nen Williams for congratulating
the rebels.
On the Governor's, orders, an
official reprimand was given to
Dr. Vernon Fox. As Assistant Dep-
ity Warden at the prison in
charge of 'individual treatment,
Dr. Fox has become a trusted
friend of many of the prison's

THE MUTINY ended at 4 p.m.
Thursday when the 170 rebel con-

block 15, in the center of the

J terday report they have not
been notified of formal charges
against them, but were told that
admitting attendance w o u l d

Presumably, charges will be

No further witnesses are known

While the law allows for its
own amendment as irndustrial
developments progress, the lawyer-
chairman said the present state
of the world made the need for
restraining private enterprise
greater than the need for remov-
ing present restrictions. Illustrat-
ing. these restraints, Dean said
that private industry is not al-
lowed to own giant plants like
the Hanford reactor station in
Washington.
He added, however, that the law
was being modified as much as
possible within the necessity for
national security.

JACKSON RIOT DISCUSSED:
Prison Goals Not Clear Carr Says

By HARRY LUNN

"The chief difficulty with prison
administration in Michigan is that
the people have not yet made up
'their minds on the objectives pris-
on officials should achieve," Prof.
Lowell J. Carr of-the sociology de-
partment said as he discussed the
causes and implications of the
Jackson Prison riot.
According to Prof. Carr, citizens
have not decided whether they

est walled prison. At present it
is badly overcrowded, holding
6,490 inmates.
Michigan's other two penal in-
stitutions ,the huge Marquette and
Ionia prisons, are also overloaded
and potentially dangerous, accord-
ing to prison officials.
'We have the most enlightened
prison administration we have
ever had at Jackson," Prof. Carr
maintained, "but we stick them be-
hind +hnm eig ta ll ynt. - sriic

"If we want to go on blunder-
ing along, we can, but it has
cost us two and a half million
to pay for the Jackson mistake,"
he said. "However," he added,
'I am afraid the State will kick
back at the prison administra-
tion for the incident by trans-
ferring them, and putting in
someone who is tough."

While the Quadrangles are won-

This is the situation that result-
ed in the decision made Thursday
by University administrators to
turn over Tyler and Prescott
Houses of the East Quadrangle to
200 graduate women next fall.
"THE ACTION is made neces-
sary by a present over-crowding
of women's housing plus an ex-
pected increase in the number of
women students on campus next

if the three quads could be ade-
qua tely filled."
In view of this, Assistant Dean
in charge of Men's Residence
Halls, Peter A. Ostafin opposing
the alternatives because of their
affects on the Michigan House
Plan, maintained in a letter to
Dean Walter Tuesday that the
quadrangles could be filled.
