they differed as to the degree of
price lifting it would entail. Prof.
Dorr commented, "I am afraid
there will be another round of
wage increases-the oil workers,
electricians and others are start-
ing wage demands-steel raises
would set off a spiral."
Prof. Levinson granted that
the increases would be "some-
whatdinflationarybecause they
would -set a standard f or wage'
hikes in other industries, but he
maintained that raises would
not wreck the price and wage
stabilization program as former
mobilization boss Charles E. Wil-
son has predicted.
Prof. Lederle commented on the
wide ramifications a steel increase
would have. Discussing steel's de-
m.ands for price increases, he said,
"It is hard to believe you can ac-
complish wonders by raising wages
and not letting steel prices go up
to meet increased costs. Stockhold-
ers want. their profits, too."
TAFT-HARTLEY ACT
IT HAS BEEN maintained by
management and many Congress-
men that President Truman should
have invoked the Taft-Hartley Act
instead of seizing the industry. La-
bor replied that they had already
delayed thestrike nearly 100 days
and should wait no longer for ac-
tion.1
Prof. Levinson voiced this con-
tention saying, "The union delay-
ed the strike nearly 100 days and
I am inclined to believe a further
cooling off period of 80 days under
the Taft-Hartley Act would have
,been inequitable for the workers."

IMPEACHMENT
IMMEDIATELY after the seiz-
ure action, David Lawrence, editor
of "U.S. News and World Report"
called for impeachment of the
President in a fiery editorial. His
request was echoed by newspapers
,p and down the nation, and sev-
eral resolutions have appeared in
Congress asking for the ouster ac-
tion.
Prof. Dorr characterized the
move as "so much hot air."
"It will not happen," was Prof.
Lederle's observation. "There are
always people, especially in an
election year, who get emotional
about this sort of thing,' he said.
"They are not insincere, but un-
realistic."

"Know people: love people,"
Louis Seltzer, editor of the "Cleve-
land Press," yesterday charged an
audience of journalism students.
He was delivering the ninth
journalism lecture of the season
at Angell Hall.
* * *
"A GREATER appreciation of
readers' interests and problems is
necessary," he claimed, "if Ameri-
can newspapers are to meet the
challenge of the changing times."
But to do this, Seltzer main-
tained, "We'll have to drop an
H-bomb, if necessary, on some
of our contemporary newspaper
policies." Our papers are handi-
capped today by living in a
journalistic world of the twen-
ties, he added.
Today people in the U.S. are
different, he said, haunted by
fears, frustrations, tensions. Pap-
ers must meet this situation by

Exotic Music
The exotic rhythms of music
from India will herald the begin-
ning of this year's International
Week.
Vashi and Veena, professional
Hindu dancers, will present a pro-
gram of "Dances of India" under
the auspices of the India Students
Association and International Cen-
ter at 8:30 p.m. tomorrow in Hill.
Auditorium.
* * *
THE DANCERS will use authen-
tic Hindu costumes and scenery,
which were inspired by early In-
dian bronzes and paintings.
Nataraj Vashi, son of a Brah-
min family, received his educa-
tion at the University of Bom-
bay and in Java, where he taught
the dances of India to Javanese
princes. lie also taught in Bali,
where he was a guest of the Hin-
du rajah.
Pra-Veena Vashi, his wife, not
only specializes in dancing but is
also a painter, architect and de-
signer of costumes and settings.
The dancing couple are now
taking graduate work in Chicago.
Vashi and Veena made their Am-
erican debut in New York in 1947.
Tickets which are one dollar
may be purchased at the Interna-
tional Center, the Administration
Building, local business establish-
ments and at the door.
The second event of Internation-
al Week will be a Bazaar sponsored
by the International Committee of
Student Legislature from 2:30 p.m.
to 9 p.m. in the League lobby.

'Dances of India'
To BeginEvents
Stressing global friendship as its theme the third annual World
Cooperation Week will begin Friday.
Jointly sponsored by the Ann Arbor Council on Intercultural
Affairs, International Students Association and the International
Center, the week is designed to emphasize the similarity of all peoples
throughout the world, according to activities coordinator Erle L.
Stewart.
** * *
"GATHERING CITIZENS of all lands to work together puts int.
practice the principles of international understanding," Stewart said.
International Week will begin with a touch of the Near East.
Vashi and Veena, Hindu dancers, will appear in a program of
"Dances of India" at 8:30 p.m. Friday at Hill Auditorium.
The professional dancers will use traditionally exotic Hindu cos-
tumes and scenery. Many of their
costumes were inspired by early
Indian bronzes and paintings.
THE WEEK'S activities will be
climaxed by the tenth annual for-
mal International Ball sponsored
by the International Students As-
sociation 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Sat-
f j urday, May 16 in the Union Ball-

focussing more attention on the
individual.
The outlook and orientation of
a small town or country newspaper
more adequately meets the needs
of their readers than that of a
metropolitan daily, the editor
said. Their staff members, editors
and publishers are out in the field,
meeting, talking with, communi-
cating with their readers.
"Much of the blame for the
delay in progress lies with the edi-
tors and publishers of our papers,"
Seltzer said. "They feel that they
can sit in their offices and with
sixth or seventh senses know how
the people are thinking and feel-
ing."

EXOTIC INDIA-Hindu dances Vashi and Veena will offer a bit
of their native culture in the program, "Dances of India."
