Gage Answers Questions at Meeting;
Cabinet Presents Joint Platform
Student Legislature President Bob Neary, '54BAd., last night
broke a tie vote, thus sending the controversial questions of composi-
tion of a proposed anti-discrimination board and establishment of a
fair-play sticker campaign back to SL's Human Relations Committee
for further consideration.
Earlier in the meeting, Robert Gage, president of Ann Arbor's
senior Chamber of Commerce, appeared at the meeting and answered
legislators' questions concerning charges of conscious or unconscious
discrimination in the local Chamber of Commerce.
THE CHARGES had appeared in a 15-page brief presented to
SL last week by SL member Paul Dormont, '55. In the report Dormont
said it was "unusual that apparently no Negro has ever been. con-
" tacted for membership" by the
T*t TChamber of Commerce.

not because the Congressman is
lax in his duties, but because he
hasn't the time to learn the details

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the third in a series of interpretive articles
dealing with mental health facilities in the state of Michigan.)
The mental health movement has not progressed at a startling
rate, but it can claim some notable accomplishments.
In 1901, when public mental health was an afterthought to many
legislatures, Michigan became the first state to provide for a psycho- j
pathic hospital in connection with its state university. Opening in
1906 under the direction of Dr. Albert E. Barrett, that hospital today
is one of the outstanding institutions in the mental health field-the
