one apiece.

Unity 'Cited
As Solving
Race issue
By LARRY SUKENIC
"The rampaging race problem ir
South Africa can only be solve
through the co-operative efforts
of both blacks and whites," Rev
Homer A. Jack, Unitarian Minis-
ter said yesterday at the day long
seminar on South Africa held a
the First Methodist Church.
Sponsored by thirteen churcl
and civic groups the seminar was
opened with an address by Prof
Gerald S. Brown, of the history
department. He spoke on the his-
torical background of South Africa
and the problems which beset it
today.
REV. JACK, minister of the
Unitarian Church of Evanston
Illinois, is a noted writer and lec-
turer on racial problems and civi]
liberties. He spent five weeks in
1952 visiting the Union of South
Africa as part of a thirteen week
tour of Africa.
In his morning address Rev.
Jack discussed the race problem
of South Africa and the discrim-
inatory policies and segretorial
practices which have led up to
the present outbreak of racial
strife in South Africa.
"Any solution acceptable to the
problem for non-Europeans and
to the world must be based on the
highest tenets of democracy and
the Judeo-Christine tradition,"
Rev. Jack said.
In his second address of the day
Rev. Jack praised the South Af-
rican Africans and the Indians in
their joint action of banning to-
gether to form the defiance move-
ment. He called this the most
powerful and significant action
yet taken in their struggle against
white supremacy and domination.

For the fine Nodak club it was
a bitter end to their season, which
they opened . by winning 12
straight. Minnesota and Michigan
combined to beat them five times
and put Coach Cliff Purpurs
squad in a precarious spot in the
Midwest standings.
* * *
NORTH DAKOTA remains in
first place, although tied yester-
day by Minnesota. The Gophers
ran their point total up to 17 by
inflicting a 10-0 defeat on Denver.
The Pioneers, who also com-
pleted their loop ,season last
evening are still in third with
15 points.
Michigan with 14 points and
Minnesota are the only top teams
with league games remaining.
Minnesota has a pair of one-
pointers with cellar-dwelling Mich-
igan State and the Wolverines
have two two-point games with
lowly Michigan Tech and one one-
point contest with the Spartans.
THE WOLVERINES clutch vic-
tory last night thus puts them in
excellent position for sharing the
top spot with Minnesota, provid-
ing the two clubs win all of their
remaining games.
Coach Vic Heyliger's club was
in top form against North Da-
kota, combining a blistering of-
fense with an air-tight defense
to beat the Sioux. Michigan
opened the scaring at 4:43 in
the first period when Jim Haas
smacked in Doug Mullen's re-
bound from in close on the
right side.
The contest remained tightly
played throughout the first frame
but Johnny Matchefts managed to
stickhandle his way through the
North Dakota defense to score at
17:39 and give Michigan a 2-0
ead at the first intermission.
S *
THE WOLVERINES broke the
contest wide open in the middle
period with three tallies, the first
coming at 3:08 when Red Mullen
licked in a pretty backhander
from the blue line.
Chin then pulled a spectacu-
lar play, skating down the right
boards, behind the Nodak nets
and passing out in front to
Cooney who blasted into the
twines at 7:00. Just under four
minutes later, the same com-
bination got together for Mich-
igan's fifth goal with Cooney
again getting the score, this
time on a blue-line screamer,

SL PROJECT:
Enthusiasm Registered
Over Citizenship Plan

By VIRGINIA VOSS

< ; - I

Student Legislature's up-coming
Student Citizenship Program has
drawn enthusiastic comment from
an administration official and a
faculty member. -
"Any techniques we can devolop
to pull students out of their in-
dividual eddies into the bigger
stream are certainly valuable,"
Dean of Students Erich A. Walter
noted.
THE COMPREHENSIVE Citi-
zenship Program, scheduled to
open at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in
Auditorium B. Mason Hall, is at-
tempting to do just that.
With a nine-session program
of panels, speeches and discus-
sions encompassing a multitude
of problems faced by the educa-
tional community, the SL project
will try to promote understand-

an analysis of the problems of
campus organizations currently
being conducted by a special stu-
dent group set up by SL.
Dean Walter said he hoped com-
mittee members would contribute
their ideas to the citizenship pro-
ject and give the rest of the cam-
pus a chance to participate in the
reevaluation move.
ONE OF THE program's sched-
uled speakers, Prof. Algo D. Hen-
derson of the education school, cit-
ed the importance of "group acti-
vity" in a college education.
He felt that besides increasing
students' awareness of community
problems, the citizenship program
would increase the know-how of
participation in activities.

meetings to an analysis of the

Prof. Kessler served as a mem-

"Prof. Kessler was highly re-
garded as a teacher and was very
active in student affairs," Dean
George G. Brown of the engineer-
ing college said. "His loss will be
felt very keenly."
Funeral services will be held at
1:30 p.m. tomorrow at the Muehlig

E At Convention
WILKES-BARRE, Pa. - 0-
Allan Haywood, who rose from a
coal mining pit in England to the
second ranking job in this coun-
try's Congress of Industrial dr-
ganizations, died last night.
Haywood, CIO executive vice
president, collapsed while ad-
dressing a union meeting here
and died after being rushed to a
hospital.
THE 64-YEAR-OLD union of-
ficial was widely known in CIO

ington to address a regional CIO

hospital but died without re-
gaining consciousness.
CIO President Walter Reuther,
in a statement issued here by the
CIO said: "The CIOand the en-
tire nation have suffered, in the
death of Allan Haywood, a griev-
ous loss. His entire life was identi-
fied with the promotion of wel-
fare of workers."
He was born in Yorkshire, Eng-
land, Oct. 9, 1888, one of 10 chil-
dren and the son df a coal miner.
He entered British labor activities
at the age of 13 as a member of
the British Miners' Federation.
