YD's To Ask
Michigan Young Democrats will
push to lower the state voting age
to 18 and the YD membership age
to 16, Dorothy H. Myers, '55, state
YD vice-chairman, said yester-
Miss Myers said plans for
changing the two age limits were
discussed at the state central
committee meeting Sunday fol-
lowing Saturday's annual Jeffer-
son-Jackson Day dinner in De-
She added that any definite ac-
tion on the membership proposal
will have to wait until it is
brought before the national YD
committee which meets in Den-
ver during May.
Present state and national YD
constitutions require members to
be between 18 and 35 years old.
Miss Myers pointed out that
three Detroit high schools have
joined in forming a YD organiza-
tion which may now receive only
an honorary charter since most
of the members are less than 18
The next state central commit-
tee meeting will be held in Ann
IArbor March 21.

The recent critical illness and
subsequent death of Russian Pre-
mier Joseph Stalin was predict-

Unit of the University Hospital,

"We're working hard, trying to
do something with hypertension.
That American medical knowledge
could have done something more
is possible, but not likely, since
there is no specific means of
treatment for this illness. He had
one form of hypertension for
which there is little known treat-
ment of any kind," he said.
Commenting , on the use of
leeches for the treatment of Stal-
in's high blood pressure, Dr. Hoob-
ler claimed that this means of
letting blood was an "acceptable
form of treatment," although rath-
Dr. William M. Brace of the
University Health Service felt
that this method of blood-lett-
ing was "very old-fashioned, and
used to impress the Russian peo-
ple. That way they couldn't
claim that everything hadn't
been done to save him," he said.
As to the possible success of
American medical practices in the
case, Dr. Brace said, "I don't see
how anybody could have saved
him. He probably had the high
blood pressure for a long time,
and there isn't very much any-
body can do for a stroke."

in the decisiveness of such a de-

will return to its own conceptions
of government, to humanitarian
democracy as it was understood by
my father, Thomas Masaryk, the
founder of democratic Szechoslo-

PROF. BENES declared that the
Reds "saw in Masaryk one of the
greatest obstacles to their endeav-
ors to strangle Czech democracy."
"No doubt Masaryk who, dur.
ing the crisis, had a number of
conversations with Valerin Zor-
in, the man whom Moscow sent
to organize the 'coup', had con-
vincing evidence of the Soviet
pressure exerted in Prague."
Prof. Benes indicated that more
concrete evidence of the murder
might be available that could not
"The revelation of such a story
might mean certain death to many
people in Czechoslovakia-people
who may be informed of some of

Prof. Benes declined comment
for this reason on a dispatch by
New York Times correspondent
C. L. Sulzberger on Dec. 29, 1951,
reporting that there was con-
clusive proof that the death was

two months later. According to
Sulzberger, it had been analyzed

and a foreign ministry and ac-
cepted as substantially accurate.
DR. TEPLY claimed he found the
body covered with bruises, with a1
7.65 caliber bullet wound through
the nape of Masaryk's neck. His
heels had been smashed with a
hammer, and the condition of his
body was such as to leave no
doubt that he had been cruelly
beaten, then murdered.
The body was in pajamas -
with evidences of scorching on
the back of his neck, indicating
that the shot had been fired
from point blank range.

first Red foreign minister, since
purged, were busy rearranging the

Masaryk had congded to Dr.
Soukup his intention to take his
own life, the former secretary de-

to warn the still-vacillating West
of the reality of the Red menace,
the doctor said.
It will probably never be known
whether Prof. Benes is right in
his conviction that it was murder
-the Reds have a long record of
obliterating traces and rewriting
history. But the enigma of doubt
will never obscure the achieve-

out, you can have one of the most fascinating careers
in the world. You'll be equipped to fly the latest,
hottest planes. You'll be prepared to take your
position as an executive, both in military and com-
mercial aviation as well as in industry. And while
you're helping yourselfyou'll be helping your country.

year to win your wings as a Pilot or Aircraft

of your training you graduate as a 2nd Lieutenant
