NICKELS FOR NIXON:
Students Respond to Appeal

University students do have
kind hearts.1
This fact was recently revealed
by the response which greeted a
letter of appeal in The Daily.
Shortly after GOP vice-presiden-
tial candidate Richard Nixon spoke
here, an epistle was printed among
setters to the Editor, asking for
contributions for the California
Senator.
* * *
FOLLOWING Sen. Nixon's local
comment, "Pat and I are only able

to attend the Rose Bowl game
when we can scrape up the four
or five dollars to buy a ticket,"
three students (presumably Demo-
crats) wrote as follows:
"We believe that to deprive
any American of his natural
right to partake in the great
American tradition of football is
indeed a grave injustice. In or-
der that we may right this
wrong, we urge you to contribute
to a fund which will insure a
carefree New Year's day at Pas-

adena for the senator and his
wife."
Five letters, each containing the
requested "Nickel for Nixon," have
been received to date. Although
three of these were filled with bona
fide contributions, the intentions
of the other donors appear ques-
tionable.
ONE KINDHEARTED soul sug-
gested that money collected over
and above the necessary $10 for
tickets be sent to the Democratic
campaign fund. Still another per-
son, with the best interests of his
candidate at heart, suggested that:
"Although Gov. Stevenson is
not planning on going to the
Rose Bowl game this year, he
would like to eat. So if you would
be so kind, would you please fill
out the enclosed and send it to
"Shillings for Stevenson."
"The enclosed" was a plea from
the Washtenaw Committee for
Stevenson for a five dollar cam-
paign donation.
A couple of the Nixon contribu-
tors requested that their nickel be
used to help finance a collar for
the candidate's famed puppy dog,
Checkers.
Sponsors of both "Nickels for
Nixon" and "Shillings for Steven-
son" have requested that other
prospective donors hurry to get
their contributions mailed before
the Nov. 4 deadline.
Women Told
UN Problems
Government official Marie C.
Berger told the League of Women
Voters yesterday that "items which
20 years ago were considered as
nations' rights are now of inter-
national concern."
Speaking at the United Nations
luncheon at the Union, Miss Ber-
ger listed problems in the working
of the present United Nations
agenda and possible solutions of
them.
The originally scheduled speak-
er was Harding F. Bancroft, who
had to cancel his appearance be-
cause of a conflict. Miss Berger
is a former senior attorney for
the Office of Price Administra-
tion and is now legal counsel for
the government's Point Four Pro-
gram.
Unitarian Pastor
To Lecture Today
Rev. Kenneth Patton, pastor of
the Unitarian Church of Boston,
will speak to the Unitarian Stu-
dent Group at 4:15 p.m. today in
Architecture Auditorium.
Topic for the lecture is "Appli-
cation of the Arts to Worship
Services." Practicing what he
preaches, Rev. Patton has experi-
mented for many years with the
use of painting, music and other
forms of art in conducting reli-
gious services in his Boston church.

Editor Cites
Newspaper
'Objectivity'
The reporting being done in the
present campaign is the best in
history, Basil Walters, executive
editor of the Knight newspapers,
declared yesterday in a journalism
lecture.
He stressed during the talk that
newspapers should make more im-
provements, and that objectivity
should be the goal sought by all in
political reporting.
USING several incidents from
the national political conventions
in Chicago, Walters explained how
what he called "research report-
ing" was used on the Chicago Daily
News to tell the full story of the
conventions.
There is a 'ery thin line be-
tween objective and slanted
news, he asserted, but he point-
ed out that it is now quite dan-
gerous to publish certain types
of news without essential back.
ground information.
Besides stressing the need for
the most objective type of report-
ing, Walters listed several words
which he said were being used to
paralyze our thinking.
He described his definition of
"liberal" as meaning one op-
posed to big government but
contended that no one thinks
of that meaning in the way the
word is used today.
Waiters also cited "Teapot
Dome" as the Democratic answer
to Republican charges of corrup-
tion in Washington, but he point-
ed out that quick action was taken
back in the 1920's to clean up the
scandal even though it involved
members of the cabinet.
"Old Guard" and "slave labor"
were other words which he de-
clared are used to confuse issues
and connote meanings that do
not exist.
Isotopes Show
Bone Growth
Results of studies using isotopes
as tracers in the growth of bones
were presented by Cyril L. Comar
in a lecture yesterday before a
meeting of the University division
of the American Chemical Society.
Comar, presentlyassociated with
the Oak Ridge Institute in Ten-
nessee, said that isotopes can be
used for tracing anything from the
habits of a mosquito to the blood
cells of an elephant. In the bone
growth study, activity in a thin
section of treated bone was record-
ed on film. A series of films taken
over a period of several months
gave an indication of the rate and
amount of growth.
One thing proved through the
study was the slowing of growth
with a decrease of calorie intake.
However, Comar stated that he ex-
pects to see little, if any, use of
these results in therapeutic prac-
tice.
Comar will continue his tour of
midwestern colleges with a talk
today at Michigan State College.

Establishes Headquarters.
In Old Journalism Building
Four weeks of hard work will show its results as Student Legis-
lature officially introduces its new quarters to students from 4 p.m.
to 6 p.m. today at a giant housewarming.
Since their move this September from South Forest to the present
location in the old Journalism Bldg., members of SL and the admin-
istrative wing have been busy putting the finishing touches on their
headquarters so as to make it more adaptable for the various committee
meetings, cabinet sessions and interviews which take place there.
ALTHOUGH this is a new home for the legislature, the building
has a long history. It was originally built in 1898 for the Zeta Psi

Open House

MEET YOUR LEGISLATURE:

'

'Fraternity, and at that time was
considered to be one of the most
lavish fraternity houses- in the
United States. The room in which
the SL cabinet now meets was
originally constructed as the fra-
ternity dining hall.
Zeta Psi occupied the house
until 1942 when it sold It to the
University. During the war it
was used to house a segment of
ROTC. After the Haven Hall fire
in 1950, the Bureau of Govern-
mentsLibraries used the build
bulduig as a headquarters to sort
the hundreds of manuscripts
which had been partially des-
troyed by the fire.
For the last few years It has
been occupied by the Departments
of journalism and psychology.
When the journalism department
received extensive space in the
new Angell Hall structure,.it be-
came possible for the legislature
to take over part of the old build-
ing.
* * *
FROM ITS beginning in 1946,
SL has had a variety of offices.
Originally their headquarters was
a closet in the Union where they
kept the sole piece of office equip-
ment-a filing cabinet. Meetings
were arranged in member's homes
or at the Union and League.
In 1949, the legislature was
given a room near the Office of
Student Affairs in the Admin-
istration Bldg., but most .com-
mittee meetings had to be held
elsewhere.
FNom August 1950 to the end of
last semester the legislature had
its offices on S. Forest. Over the
years SL has gradually acquired
office equipment and today has
five typewriters, a ditto machine,
several filing cabinets and mis-
cellaneous material.
SL shares its present quarters
with the Bureau of Psychological
Services, having been alloted eight
rooms on the first floor and two on
the second. Although this is less
space than the old headquarters,
it has the advantage of bringing
the SL offices closer to campus.
