U Outlays
To Boost Library
Building Project
In what was termed a "desirable
move" by University vice-presi-
dent Marvin L. Niehuss, the Sen-
ate Finance Committee juggled its
capital outlays figures yesterday
to give the University's library
expansion program a boost.
The change does not increase
the funds recommended for the
University building plans but re-
allocates $400,000 to the proposed
automotive laboratory on the
North Campus from the money
originally earmarked for altera-
tions and modernization of the
University Hospital.
Niehuss said the Senate commit-
tee discussed their money bill with
him Wednesday and probably
changed their bill because they
"perhaps didn't quite realize the
importance of the auto lab to the
library program."
UNDER PRESENT plans an un-
dergraduate library will be built
on the site of the present automo-
tive building. Work on this can-
not begin, however, until provisions
for the new auto lab are made.
The $400,000 is part of the $1,800,-
000 which the building is expected
to cost.
Work will begin immediately,
Niehuss said, on completing
plans for the building, clearing
of the site and then the foun-
dation work. "The money will
give us work for about a year,"
Niehuss said, "but will delay
I completion of the building by
about six months because it is
not all we needed at this time."
He added, however, "The new
proposal provides a fund distribu-
tion that permits more flexibility
in our going forward in our build-
ing program."
The bill advanced by the Senate
group Wednesday would provide
the University with $1,30,000, Irn-
portat items left out, Niehuss
said, were funds for a new medical
science building and provisions for
expansion of the heating plant to
serve the North Campus.
WQ Busboys
Resume Work
Striking West Quad busboys re-
turned to work yesterday after
agreeing to set up a grievance
board to negotiate with the Uni-
versity in their behalf.
The board of six student work-
ers, set up at a meeting yester-
day, has been instructed to present
a list of grievances to Leonard A.
Schaadt, Business Manager of
Residence Halls, Monday.

IT WAS AGREED at the time to
return to work for the evening
meal but if the University does not
meet their demands by April 27
the students have indicated they
will walk out again.
A third meeting was set for 5
p.m. Monday to which represen-
tatives from the other residence
halls are being urged to come.
MEANWHILE rumors of discip-
linary action by the University and
stories of threats' to non-striking
waiters were heard throughout the

dorm yesterday.
Schaadt said yesterday, how-
ever, that no disciplinary ac-
tion is planned. "We are simply
interested in getting them back
to work as soon as possible," he

Intellectual Conformity
A ttacked by Judge Clark
A university should not become "a sort of assistant prosecutor"
for Communist-hunting Congressional committees, Charles E. Clark,
judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit said yester-
Speaking before an audience of judges, lawyers and law students at
the Law School's annual Founder's Day dinner, Judge Clark charged

Quad Staffs
May See Cut
In Personnel
Ad ministration
Continues Talks
Residence hall counselling staffs
face possible cuts in personnel if
present adminisrtative discssions
bear fruit.
Plans are currently being pro-
posed to cut the number of staff
assistants in the quads while
strengthening the positions of the
remaining counselling staff mem-
bers. Staff assistants serve large-
ly in a "proctoral" position. Their
prime function is to see that house
rules are enforced and order
REDUCTION in the number of
staff assistants will result in a
pay increase for the remaining
staff members. Administrators
hope this pay hike will attract
more experienced personnel.
Other plans under discussion
include establishment of sev-
eral smaller housing units, pos-
sibly for upperclassmen only.
Francis C. Shiel, Manager of
Service Enterprises, said there is
a possibility that some change
will be brought about next semes-
ter, but that "it won't be done
without satisfying everyone con-
Director of South Quad, and As-
sistant Dean in charge of Men's
Residence Halls, said more facul-
ty members are needed on the
quad counselling staffs and that
he would like a greater ratio of
mature faculty to students.
He said that he was definitely
opposed to the idea of segregat-
ing the freshmen from the up-
perclassmen since the upper-
classmen perform a necessary
guiding function.
However, house mothers from
several of the women's dormitor-
ies on the hill, felt that since over
fifty per cent of the dormitory
residents are freshmen, a separ-
ate housing unit for upperclass-
men would be desirable.
In reference to staff reductions,
house mothers placed a high value
on dormitory counsellors And ex-
pressed a plea for an increase in
their number rather than a de-

Asked what he thought the at-
titude of University officials should
be if Congressional investigators1

Judge Clark scored the critical,1

praised Sen. Robert A. Taft (R-
Ohio) for his recent statement
that he wouldn't fire a Commu-

fortunately considerably diluted
his stand. Judge Clark said.

mire the judge, and it is always

City Will Get
Drug for .Polio
Gamma globulin for use as an
infantile paralysis preventative
will be available in Washtenaw1
County as soon as the standards
of distribution are set, Dr. Otto K.
Engelke, county health officer,
said yesterday.
The Office of Defense Mobili-
zation, which is distributing the
drug through local health depart-1
ments, will determine the basic1
allocation to each state, based onj
the average number of polio casesf
in the state over a five year period.
COSTING ABOUT $14 an in-
jection, gamma globulin will be
given only to the immediate fiam-
ily of a polio victim because they
are considered the highest risk.
Emphasizing thesmall supply s
of the drug which is present in K
an extremely low percentage in
the blood, Dr. Engelke said
"There will be an unusual and
almost impossible demand to
fill for gamma globulin when a
district is hit by polio."
The National Foundation for
Infantile Paralysis has bought up
the supply to prevent a black
market in the drug and will regu-
late the distribution, according to
Elizabeth Langford, county Foun-
dation executive secretary.
The Red Cross will be respon-
sible for collecting the blood for
gamma. globulin but will have
nothing to do with distribution,

tary for the. county Red Cross,
