Mechanisms of group or ethnic
assimilation were enumerated yes-
terday to the anthropology club
by Prof. Wilhelm E. Miihlmann of
the sociology department of the
University of Mainz, Germany.
According to Prof. Miihlmann
primitive groups do not accept
new members without a formal
ceremony. This ceremony may in-
clude anything from formal adop-
tion of the individual or group, to
forceful incorporation into the
As an example, he cited the Iro-
quois Indians who took prisoners
of other tribes and incorporated
them into their own group.
Much ethnical assimilation is
carried on through intermarriage

Dean of Students Erich A.
Walter noted yesterday that of
the 54 candidates who applied
for Yost Awards, only nine have
scholastic averages of less than
2.5, and 11 have averages of 3.0
Lowest scholastic average among
the winners is 2.8, and the high-
est is 3.4.
"These figures are particularly
important in light of comment
which is often heard that extra-
curricular activities which are
time-consuming and of a mean-
ingful character must obviously be
accompanied by mediocre schol-
arship records," Dean Walter com-

Read and Use
Washtenaw county newsstands
will soon be hit by a countywide
campaign against obscene litera-
ture, Prosecutor Edmond F. De-
Vine revealed yesterday.
DeVine said the campaign is
the beginning of an action to keep
obsceneumagazines and pocket no-
vels out of the hands of minors
in the county.

A LIST, containing the names
of publicationos banned by the
Detroit police censorship bureau
.and others found obscene by
Washtenaw county law enforce-
ment agents, will be in the hands
of distributors and retail dealers
in a few days.
The prosecutor said removal
of the literature will be left to
the sellers who have promised
cooperation. However, if they
fail to comply, court action will
be started, DeVine added.
If an action is started against
a dealer, he said, it will be left to
a jury to determine whether the
literature is obscene.
The action to remove the pub-
lications from the newsstands
followed a recent county-wide sur-
vey to determine the extent of
sales of the obscene literature, De-'
Vine commented. "We are going to
do what we can to keep it out of
the county," he said.
'UT' Called Too
Members of state trade associa-
tions accused the University of
being "too. commercial" in a State
House Ways and Means Commit-
tee meeting yesterday in Lansing.
The Union was specifically
mentioned by Anthony N. Pre-
ketes, Ann Arbor restauranteur
and head of the local Restaurant
Association. Preketes said "many
owners of local restaurants have
complained about the University's
In answer to Preketes' charges,
director of University relations,
Arthur L. Brandon, said, "The
Michigan Union is for its mem-
bers-alumni and students. Little
of its service is available to an
outsider, and only when the out-
sider is sponsored by a member."

With a Senate vote on Hawaiian statehood expected this month,
the University Hawaiian Club has intensified its efforts to sell state-
hood for the island territory to students and local residents.
Paul Ng, '53, chairman of the club's statehood committee, reported
group members have spoken to three sororities, the Young Republican
Club, the University High School's class in modern social problems
and Wayne Memorial High School students since the semester's start.

HAWAII WAS ANNEXED to the United States in 1898 by a joint
resolution of Congress and incorporated as a territory under the
Organic Act of 1900.
Since then, numerous Congressional committees have studied
repeated statehood requests by the Islanders. Favorable committee
and presidential recommendations have sent the bill to Congress
three times in the past but twice the House has passed it only to
have the bill die in the Senate.
Actually, however, suggestions that Hawaii be made a state go
as far back as 1849.
In May of that year, a Lowville, New York newspaper, the "North-
ern Journal," published a two-column editorial advocating annexa-
tion and statehood for the Hawaian Islands.
And a few years later at a post-election Democratic Party cele-
bration a toast was offered to "The Sandwich Islands-may they
soon be added to the galaxy of '
