** * *

President Harlan H. Hatcher
will take the stage at 3 p.m. to-
morrow at Hill Auditorium to talk
to the student body.
He will deliver a 30 minute
speeh which will cover his edu-
cational philosophies, his ideas of
the student's role on campus and
his plans for the University.
In addition, he will discuss stu-
dent suggested topics which were
recently gathered by Student Leg-
islature members. Sue Popkin, S
secretary, reported that , the two
most popular topics were relations
between undergrads and graduate
students and problems surround-
ing the Lecture Committee,

PRESIDENT Hatcher will be in-
troduced by SL President Howard
Willens, '53. Classes will not be
excused for the convocation.
The president's talk will mark
the first time in recent years that
the University's president has
spoken directly to students.
The President's Convocation has
been in the planning stage ever
since the huge student farewell
was given to retiring President
Alexander G. Ruthven last May.
At that time SL leaders thought
it would be an excellent idea if
students could informally meet the
new president.
Due to President Hatcher's
crowded schedule last . fall, it
was impossible to make definite
plans for the giant meeting until
early this spring. Dave Brown,
'53, is general chairman of the
assembly and has been assisted
in planning and publicity by
numerous campus organizations.
Brown emphasized that "many
students have not had a chance
to hear President Hatcher's views,
and the convocation should pro-
vide a fine opportunity for them
to do so."
Turns Down
Three students who were placed
on probation for "failure to co-
operate" with the Joint Judiciary
Council in the McPhaul dinner
investigation revealed yesterday
that their~ appeals for a rehearing
have been turned down.
Although the other two had not
received formal notices there were
indications that the verdict re-
mained the same in their cases.
THOSE WHO received letters
from the Office of Student Affairs
were Dave Luce, Grad., Valerie
Cowen, '54, and Myron Sharpe,
Grad. The other two students are
Ed Shaffer, Grad., and Steve
Smale, Grad.
The notices stated that the
Sub-Committee on Discipline
reaffirmed the students' proba-
tion and saw no reason for
changing their decision.
The only change came in the
case of Sharpe. The Committee re-
moved the charge of "misrepre-
sentation of facts." However, as in
the case of the others, the charge
t of "refusing to answer reasonable
questions" remained.
According to Luce, the five
plan to consult the Administra-
tion in order to find "the best
possible channels of further ap-
a peal."
Although the students filed sep-
arate appeals, all five centered
around the protest that "we have
been found guilty of a charge on
which we were not tried."
The original charge against the
students was that of having vio-
lated a Regents by-law which in-
volves the use of University pro-
perty. They were acquitted on this

Union, Industry Prepare'
Briefs for Steel Case
WASHINGTON-(P)-The steel industry and the Government
squared off yesterday in the great constitutional battle over Presi-
dent Truman's seizure of the.nation's eight billion dollar steel industry
to prevent a strike.
The two antagonists formally presented the Supreme Court with
thick legal briefs bristling with arguments which each side hoped will
convince the nine High Court Justices.

THE CIO STEELWORKERS, all but lost in the court battle but
with a vital interest in the outcome, gave the court their version of

'Favorite Son
Slate Given
To Williams
State's National
Delegates Chosen
By The Associated Press
The Michigan Democratic State
Convention meeting in Grand
Rapids yesterday sent 128 dele-
gates and alternates .to cast 40
"favorite son" votes for Gov. G.
Mennen Williams at their Nation-
al Convention-thereby muddling
the status of the entire delegation.
The convention, adopting a com-
promise slate, chose 12 delegates
at-large to cast four votes and four
more alternates at-large with no
votes in a move to give recogni-
tion to all factions of the party.
WILLIAMS was the unanimous
choice of the convention as a fa-
vorite son candidate for the Pres-
idency, but no one took that too
seriously and Williams' nominat-
ing petitions for reelection as Gov-
ernor were being circulated dur-
ing the convention.
The National Committee had
allotted Michigan 36 Congres-
sional District delegates with one
vote and eight delegates at-large
with half a vote each.
Instead the convention elected
62 district delegates, some with
full votes and some with half votes
and 12 delegates at large, each
with a one-third vote. In addi-
tion it chose 54 alternates.
This threatened a row in Chi-
cago, since the National Coin-
mittee does not expect sufficient
seats to, be available for all.
Party leaders were careful to al-
low no open commitments to any
Presidential candidate except Wil-
iams, but there was an undercur-
rent of top-brass support for both

IN DETROIT, Harold Stassen
declared yesterday that if he were

er Minnesota Governor, said he
also would advocate independence
and sovereignty of such groups
as Ukrainians, Armenians, White
Russians, and other nationalities
under Communist domination."

When Barkley speaks at a Jef-

Get Minor concessions

Tom Lawson, ace Michigan
State right-hander, turned in a
sparkling two-hit 4-0 shutout over
the Wolverine baseball team here
yesterday to earn a series victory
for the Spartans.
In the first game, Michigan won
handily 10-2, as Jack Corbett
coasted to his fifth win of the sea-
son behind an eleven hit attack
sparked by Paul Lepley, Frank
Howell and Don Eaddy.

B U T COACH Ray Fisher's
southpaws couldn't h o 1 d the
righthanded MSC lineup down.
Mary Wisniewski followedthe ex-
ample of his fellow port-sider Dick
Yirkosky, in losing the seven-inn-
ing nightcap.
"Corky" Ghise, Ray Lane, and
Dick Moser got all eight of the
hits off the young lefthander.
In the third inning, lead-off bat-
ter Moser got the second of his
four hits, a two-out single to left.
Whereupon Ghise unlimbered on
a fast ball and sent a towering
home run over 400 feet into left,
for the first two Spartan runs.

then was given an intentional pass
to load the bases whereupon Lane
promptly knocked in State's last
two tallies with a clean base hit
into left.
Lawson pitched brilliantly ov-
er the seven-inning distance,
giving up only two hits-both
by Wisniewski, and not allow-
ing anyone to reach third and
only two men got as far as sec-
ond base.
The opener saw the Wolverines
run rough-shod over Coach John
Kob's charges. Lepely batted in

and walked twice to lead the at-
IN THE THIRD inning after
Mogk, Howell and Eaddy had sin-
gled to fill the bases, Lepley clean-
ed the bases with line-drive double

The young freshman from
Warwick, Ohio, came through
again with the sacks full in the
fourth when he singled home the
fifth and sixth Michigan runs.
The Wolverines ended that scor-
ing spree by tallying four times
in the sixth.
Three Spartan pitchers absorb-
ed the pasting, starter Bob Carlson
getting charged with the loss.
Carlson gave up five hits and
four runs before he was replaced
by southpaw Don La Pointe in the
third. LaPointe yielded four more
runs and gave way to righty Bob
Dangel in the sixth.
Michigan got to Dangel for two
more runs in the sixth frame but
he hung on to finish the contest.
Corbett had an easy time of it
with the lads from East Lansing,
yielding only six hits. He had clear
going except for the sixth inning

Prisoner Terms
To Be Announced
SEOUL, Korea, Sunday, May 11
-(R)-Brig. Gen. Francis T. Dodd
was freed unharmed and in good
spirits last night by his Commun-
ist captors on Koje Island.
The price of his freedom-con-
cessions made to thousands of Red
prisoners of war-probably will be
announced later.
In a dramatic, late hour an-
nouncement to correspondents, the
U.S. Eighth Army said Dodd was
released at 9:30 p.m. (7:30 a.m.,
EST, Saturday)-78 hours and 15
minutes after he was dragged
bodily into a compound of 6,000
surly North Korean prisoners late
Wednesday afternoon.
* * *
DODD WILL BE flown to Eighth
Army headquarters for a news con-
ference sometime today. Details of
Dodd's release were not announced
immediately. The Eighth Army
said it came after a meeting of
Communist ringleaders of the com-
pound-a conference attended by
leaders from other prison com-
pounds on the rocky island.
Dodd, 52, commander of the
island prison, was seized as he
conferred with the prisoners at
the gate of compound 76. He and
Lt. Col. Wilbur Raven of New-
ton, Tex., were grabbed by the
Red leaders, but Raven fought
his way out of the group.
Dodd was held hostage inside
the compound, where he negotiat-
ed with the Reds for settlement of
some of their grievances.
Dodd asked camp authorities to
refrain from using force to free
him until the Communists had
completed listing their demands.
The Army said yesterday some
"minor requests" of the Reds had
been granted.

MEANWHILE three big railroad
unions today won the right to tell
the Supreme Court how issues in
the steel industry seizure case af-
fect President Truman's 1950 seiz-
ure of the railroads.
The high tribunal in an unsigned
order late yesterday granted un-
ion attorneys an hour to preseht
arguments, after the Justices hear
five hours of legal debate in the
steel case.
The railroad unions, in an ap-
peal filed with the Supreme Court
yesterday, assailed presidential
seizure of the railroads and the
steel industry.

frankly they were bewildered by
the abrupt move, which came on
the eve of the third anniversary
of the end of the Soviet blockade
of Berlin.
Others termed it just another
stitch in the needling process the
Russians often give the West in
But all seemed determined to
avoid stress on the incident.
For a time Russian guards re-
fused to let patrols enter from
the Helmstedt end of the 110-mile
stretch. Later they permitted
Helmstedt patrol cars to enter.
This added to Allied confusion.

Ann Arbor will join the rest of
the nation today in officially be-
ginning Armed Forces Week.
A week's program is planned
featuring a series of talks, Thurs-
day, on 'what the University con-
tributes to the Armed Forces.'
These will be broadcast over three
Ann Arbor and Detroit stations.

At a meeting yesterday, the
Young Progressive executive com-
mittee drew up a petition request-
ing a hearing before the next Stu-
dent Affairs Committee meeting.
According to Gordon MacDoug-
all, chairman of the YP education
committee, the officers plan to
ask why the Lecture Committee
has not passed on the YP's peti-
tions for speakers Arthur McPhaul,
Lorraine Meisner and William
Hood. "It has been two weeks
since the petitions were submit-
ted." MacDougall protested.
The statement which the group
plans to submit to SAC also claims
that the Lecture Committee has
defied SAC's directive to deal im-
partially with the YP's.
