YP Re-evaluation
Daily Managing Editor
The Young Progressives will be summoned again before the Stu-
'dent Affairs Committee for a hearing on the group's "responsibility," it
was decided yesterday.
The SAC, by a unanimous vote, agreed to undertake a re-evalua-
tion of YP at a special meeting called for Tuesday.

ON JUNE 5, THE SAC conducted a similar inquiry, at the request
of the Lecture Committee. At that time, the group was cleared, but

only way to get my platform be.

wished to "get elected on platformx

went on to say that there were
others also guilty of infringement
of the quad regulations.
Following a discussion of Per-

originally planned to appeal his

Earlier in the day, however, at
the West Quad Council's meet-

cussion of his appeal was voted
down when Council president,
Sam Alfieri, '53A, cast the tie-
breaking vote against continuance
of the discussion. The meeting
was attended by a large contin-

Membership of the first Engi-

announced last night following a
meeting by a committee of Engi-

<several recommendations were
made to the organization on im-
proving its internal procedures.
The new investigation was pre-
cipitated by a YP petition to hear
controversial author Howard Fast
speak on campus Dec. 6. The peti-
tion had been submitted, as per
standard procedure, to Dean of
Students Erich A. Walter, who,
under normal circumstances,
would have certified that the spon-
soring group was a recognized stu-
dent organization and passed the
petition on to the Lecture Com-

THREE OF last June's sugges-
tions in particular came into ques-
1) "That YP should obtain a
new faculty advisor."
This was made because.the pres-
ent advisor, Prof. John S. Shep-
ard, emeritus of the psychology
department, was felt to have fail-
ed to fulfill his function. At the
time of the McPhaul dinner inves-
tigation, it was reported that he
did not know who the YP officers
were, and was completely out of
touch with the organization and its
However, the YP's declined to
change their advisor. It is reported
that Prof. Shepard has been keep-
ing in closer contact with the
group this year. He addressed a
recent meeting.
2) "That YP should restrict
its membership to students."
At present, there are four non-
students on the YP rolls. If these
were subtracted, YP membership
would fall below the required mini-
mum of thirty for continued recog-
3) "That YP should cooperate
more closely with University
These aspects of YP's opera-
tions presumably will come in for
SAC scrutiny next Tuesday. The
above were recommendations, not
Meanwhile, the Committee in-
structed Dean Walter to forward
the Fast petition to the Lecture
Committee. It was felt that, inas-1
much as YP is still a fully recog-
nized group, they should not be
deprived of their rights and priv-
ileges as such before their case
had been judged.
The Lecture Committee did not
have a meeting scheduled for con-
sideration of the Fast request. It
seemed likely no meeting would be
held before the SAC meeting next
Most campus observers agreed
that the Lecture Committee, if it
used the criteria employed last
year in banning four speakers and
restated on the revised petition
forms, would not permit Fast to
make a 'campus speech.
SL leaders were privately con-
cerned over the possibly disas-
trous effects another banning at
this stage might have on the
chances for effecting a change in
the Lecture Committee operations.

Book Dealer
Drops IFC's
Cut-Rate Plan
Supply Savings
Program Halted
An interfraternity Council plan
which would have allowed affiliat-
ed students to purchase school
supplies at cut-rate prices fell
through yesterday when the book-
store owner who was to supply
the merchandise refused to com-
plete the agreement.
A long-term contract arranging
for the discount plan was to have
been agreed on last night in a
meeting between the IFC Execu-
tive Committee and the owner of
the State St. firm.
* * *
THE proposed contract, which
would have brought about dis-
counts ranging upwards of 20 per
cent on all school supplies except
textbooks, would then have been
submitted to the House Presidents'
Assembly for ratification.
Intended only to bring savings
to affiliates, the arrangement
would yield no profit to the IFC,
but would pass on all the sub-
stantial discounts to purchasers,
IFC president Pete Thorpe, '53,
The IFC learned through in-
vestigation that only organizations
which are not subsidized by the
University could enter into such
an agreement, IFC treasurer, John
Messer, '53, said. Since the IFC
receives no such financial aid, it
was eligible under this interpre-
tation, he added.
* * *
THE bookstore owner declined
at the last minute to go along
with the plan because of a lack
of personnel and facilities needed
to handle the large volume of bus-
iness, Messer said.
Although he was offered IFC
personnel and guaranteed that
the Council would. provide the
necessary facilities, the dealer
still would not agree to the
plan, the IFC treasurer related.
When questioned by The Daily
yesterday, the bookstore owner re-
fused to release his name and
would not comment on the IFC
plan or the reasons for his sudden
withdrawal from the proposed ar- t
An attorney who was consulted 3
by the IFC on the proposed con-
tract also refused to commentI
HOWEVER, the sudden reversal
of IFC's plan will not halt theirf
efforts to secure cheaper schoolI
supplies, Thorpe reported. The1
Council now plans to investigatet
prospects of dealing with whole-
salers outside of Ann Arbor to
bring savings to affiliates.

Merger Bid Made
By AFL's Meany
Green's Successor Confident That
Union Differenees Can Be Settled
WASHINGTON-OP)-George Meany, stocky 58-year-old former
plumber, yesterday became president of the American Federation of
Labor, and his first act was to renew a merger bid to the CIO.
Meany expressed confidence that the nation's two big union
organizations could sit down and bury their past differences to work
out a merger satisfactory to both.

A VETERAN union leader with 30 years in various labor posts,
Meany was unanimously selected by the AFL's 14-member Executive
Council to succeed the late William Green as the AFL's president.

to year natural investment in the
welfare and safety of the nation,"
University President Harlan H.
Hatcher said yesterday at the sixth
annual conference of higher edu-
Speaking before 230 delegates
from colleges all over Michigan,
President Hatcher blasted the
present financing of higher edu-
cation in this state.
PRESIDENT Hatcher pointed
out that Michigan seems com-
mitted to the earmarking of funds
for elementary education. Al-
though he said he did not ap-
prove of this principle, he did ex-
press the belief that the state must
put its entire educational program
under the same system.
He described the needs of
higher education as "nicro-
scopic" compared to the 87 bil-
lion dollars spent for foreign aid
since the end of the war and the
60 billion proposed for the de-
fense program.
"It has taken 75 years for the
size of our educational system to
reach its present dimension. I will
allow fiveyears to finding the sol-
ution to this vast expansion," he

Legislature's plea to stay through
their last Wednesday classes.
Bob Neary, '54, SL treasurer,
made the plea Monday, saying, "If
classes are cut excessively the
chances of having the holiday re-
newed will not be good."

!THE FOUR-DAY weekend is
the first in a two-year trial period.
After next year's Thanksgiving
holiday, the plan will be reviewed
and a decision made on whether it
will become permanent.
The University residence halls
will keep their dining rooms open
throughout the holiday, in spite
of the fact that few students will
be present to eat their food, and
are making plans for gala Tur-
key - Day dinners. Residence
halls dietitians are preparing the
gobblers with stuffing and all
the trimmings for the big day.
Reduced train rates have been
offered for groups of three and a
"special" train will leave for Chi-
cago tonight. Railroad officials re-
ported a good many students left
Ann Arbor last night on their reg-
ularly-scheduled trains.
The Greyhound bus company
has made arrangements to accom-
modate the added crowds of stu-
dents on special busses leaving for
Lansing, Grand Rapids, Chicago
and Toledo. The busses will leave
the Union at 4:15 p.m. today.

stay here will be able to eat at

Tickets Available
For Airport Buses
Students who were unable to
sign up to ride on the special buses
to Willow Run can still buy tick-
ets today at the bus.
The buses were chartered by the
Wolverine Club to take students
to the airport in time for major
flight departures, for 75 cents.
They will leave from the front of
the Union at 12:15, 2:30, 4:15, and

secretary-treasurer under Green

years of Green's declining
health, had been the major

Ten Million
Asset Jump
University assets for the fiscal
year ending June 30, 1952, have
jumped 10 and a half million over
the previous year's record to a
total of $158,144,762,
Items of the financial report,
made public yesterday by Vice-
President Wilbur K. Pierpont fol-
lowing acceptance by the Regents,
total out to the largest asset sum
yet recorded by the University.
SIGNIFICANT divisions in the
gigantic accounting job show that:
1. The 20 million dollar General
Fund narrowly exceeded breaking
even, with income totalling $24-
751 more than expenses. The near-
balance was achieved only by rigid
budgeting and restrained pur-
chases, Pierpot said.
Most rudimentary of the Un-
versity's seven separate fund divi-
sions, the General Fund covers
basic teaching, research, public
service activities, feral business
opei'ations and normal plant func-
2 The human factor, in the
form of salaries and other funds
for University teaching staff and
personnel, stood out about the
maze of figures to account for
72 per cent of the institution's
total expenditures.
3. Investment in land, buildings
and equipment rose nearly nine
million dollars over the previous
year's sum to $107,450,499, thus
bearing o it in figures what stu-
dents had seen and heard happen-
ing on campus with the comple-
tion of South Quad, Angell Hall
additions an other structures.
* * *
ience, University money is divided
into the General Fund and all
other sums, a grouping compris-
ing six separate funds.
The General Fund drew the
bulk of its finances-$14,845,000
-from state appropriations.
Student fees accounted for $4,-
Non-general funds include trust
funds and research projects; Uni-
versity Hospital "and. affiliated
units; publication, athletic and
other student activities; residence
halls; food service, laundry, air-
port and non-investment property.
These activities chalked up i
total income of $26,242,014, about
four million more than the 1950-
51 sum. Part of the increase was
attributable to expanded research
activities, according to Pierpont.
A fund of $44,426,000 was desig-
nated for operating expensess for
both general and non-general
funds, as against $39,126,928 for
the preceding year. Total income
'exceeding operating expenses by
approximately two million dollars,
virtually the same as in 1950-51.
