McCune Bill Meets Local Opposition
The McCune bill, which pro-
poses to censor beer and wine ad-
vertising over television stations in
Michigan, met with strong local'
opposition yesterday.
The highly controversial bill has
already been passed by the Mich-
igan House of Representatives and
is now waiting action in the Sen-
ate Judiciary Committee.
PROF. PAUL G. Kauper of the
Law School reported "there would
be a very substantial question
raised" over whether the bill would
interfere with interstate corn-
merce. Matters in interstate com- < s
merce are handled by the national
government and do not come under
a state's jurisdiction.

"Another objection could be
raised" concerning whether the
bill would violate freedom of the
press and communications, Prof.
Kauper added.
If passed, the measure would
order the State Liquor Control
Commissionto forbidnthe sale of
any beer or wine in Michigan
which is advertised on television in
such a way as to "dramatize" the
act of drinking.
Some legislators have interpret-
ed the bill's provisions to mean
that even showing glasses of wine
or beer sitting in a refrigerator
might be censored as well as pic-
tures of actual drinking.
FLOODS OF more than 1,000
letters a day have been pouring
into the Capitol Bldg. in Lansing
during recent ,weeks urging pass-
age of the bill.
Catching legislators unpre-
pared for the large number of
letters and telegrams, which
constitutes the "biggest storm"
to hit Lansing in many years,
they have been dumped helter-
skelter into bushel-baskets, one
representative reported.
Sponsors of the bill claim they
were crossed up by Lt. Gov. Clar-
ence A. Aeid earlier this week when
he sent the bill to the Senate Judi-
ciary Committee rather 'than the
Liquor Committee, which has been
more favorable to passing the cen-
sorsIlip act.
Most observers have predicted
that the Judiciary Committee
would bottle up the bill for the
rest of the session. Usually legis-
lative committees cast secret bal-
lots on bills, making it impossible

Red Growth
In Near East
World Cited
Speaking yesterday in Angell
Hall, Prof. Bernard Lewis of the
University of London's School of
Oriental and African Studies as-
sessed the possibilities of the Mid-
dle East turning Communist.
The professor pointed out sev-
eral factors that can possibly pro-
mote Communism's growth in that

PRIMARILY, he noted the
strong anti-West sentiment that
presently prevails. He cited the
attempt to Westernize the Middle
East as having produced severe
strains and arousing much antag-
"Moreover," he added, "this
has laid the basis for the 'West-
ern Imperialism' charge of the
"The total effect," Prof. Lewis
reported, "of Westernization has
been to aggravate the inequalities
in the distribution of wealth and
income-the rich are richer and
the poor are poorer."
Also mentioned were several in-
herent features of the Middle East
that closely resemble the Soviet
system. "Traduitional authoritar-
ionism of the area," he explained,
"and the humble acquiescence of
the people to their sovereign pro-
vides a favorable b a s i s for
Communism's expansion."
SEVERAL factors were pointed
out that could be of great aid
in impeding Soviet infiltration.
"Moslems are dedicated to the
rule of law and while authoritar-
iarism is conspicuous it is not
despotic," he said. "This combined
with the toleration of Islamic peo-
ple provides a favorable basis for
incipient Democracy.
In concluding, the professor
stated that because Communistic
ideology is primarily aetheistic, it
cannot be reconciled with the fact
that to the Moslems, religious
identification stands above all in

Some superior students at the
University of Detroit have been ex-
cused from attending classes.
Inaugurating a new program de-
signed "to encourage the excellent
student," the University has ex-
empted 11 students from regular
instruction. Instead of the lectures
and recitations, these students will
be required to do superior work
Iwhile holding tutor conferences

Division Sets
City's Habits
There was method in the mad-
ness of naming Division St.

Arbor into two equal halves in
terms of area or population but in
terms of a city ordinance. It does,
however, divide the campus area
from the rest of Ann Arbor.

states that the University area and
other parts of the city located east
of Division, south of Fuller, and
north of Stadium "shall not con-
tain saloons, restaurants, stores or
other places where intoxicating
liquors shall be sold."
Spirituous malt, brewed, fer-
mented, vinous or intoxicating
liquors may be sold at drug
stores within the University
area, however. Outside of the
borders, liscensed establishments
are allowed to sell intoxicating
In addition to the city ordinance
containing the above stipulations,
City Charter order No. 88 states
the same rules. City Clerk Fred
J. Looker yesterday said that the
Division St. boundary has exist-
ed "from time in memorian" in
the City Charter. He attributed the
law to the existence of the univer-
sity on the east side of Division
and the great number of minors
living in that area.
The ordinance reinforcing the
charter order was passed by the
City Council in 1934 following the
repeal of prohibition.

At present five students are ex-
cused from beginning courses and
six are permitted to study by pri-
vate tutors. The tutorial program
will be emphasized with the even-
tual aim of employing special tu-
tors to handle this phase of the
program according to Father Dwy-
* * *
TERMING the program a fine
idea, Prof. George A. Peek of the
political science department point-
ed out that it would break down
the size of a large University and
get better teaching. Political sci-
ence 2 classes are working on a
plan, this year where they will be
broken down into smaller groups
of students.
An experient in this type
schooling is also going on in
the psychology department this
semester. Students in elemen-
tary psychology are excused
from classes and assigned spe-
cial work. This lets the student
set his own goals, Milton J.
Rosenberg of the psychology de-
partment said.
While approving of the plan,
Prof. William C. Morse of the ed-
ucation school explained that un-
der such a plan a student might
lose the individual interaction
gained from classes. The program
might be useful as part of the
total learning process, he contin-
ued, and allowances can be made
for individual difference.
"We should turn to this meth-
od instead of having daily home-
work assignments, commented a
student who preferred to remain
anoymous. "When students can
do their work on their own time
they'll do it better and with much
more interest," he added.

Art Analyzed
By Dorner
Art has followed a definite pat-
ter-n which can be paralleled to
that of man's life, said Prof. Alex-
ander Dorner of Bennington Col-
lege, Vermont, yesterday in his
lecture, "Why Integrate the Arts?"
The visiting professor stated
that in the first stage of art, the
need for absolute certainty was
expressed by rigidly symmetrical
buildings and Baroque paintings of
the seventeenth century.
The second and contemporary
stage of art is exemplified by Im-
pressionism and Abstractionism in
painting and by the "modern"
Frank Lloyd Wright type of arch-
The former professor of art his-
tory at Hanover University in Ger-
many said that since the late
eighteenth century the element of
chance has been recognized and
introduced into the arts. Through
slides he illustrated that this ac-
ceptance of change has been slow
and that even early American art
bears a strong resemblance to Sev-
enteenth Century Classicism.

a course in "psychology in liter-

and other authorities are being
contacted about this possibility.
Aware of many conflicts
among courses, the committee
has also begun a study of pos-
sible improvements in time
schedule organization.
The group's meeting also brought
to light an interest in symposiums
similar to those -held in Univer-
sity summer sessions. Such pro-
grams integrate various fields of
social sciences and humanities, of-
fering credit to students enrolling.
Special outside speakers and
programs are also given, as they
will be in the coming summer's
symposium on "Woman in the
World of Man." The committee
has undertaken an investigation of
these programs, and the possibil-
ity of beginning them during the
regular academic year.

accurate estimation of fall en-

Dean Rea commented, "It is my
hope that a solution to the prob-
lem as represented by housing
needs for fall '54 should be reach-
ed by the Board in the near fu-
ture with respect for all rights
and interests concerned."
Pointing out the need for addi-
tional women's housing in the fall
semester Mrs. Fuller said that on
the basis of admissions office pre-
dictions 100 more spaces for fresh-
men women will be needed.
s * s
"I SEE NO WAY in which the
present system of supervised hous-
ing can house 100 more women,"
Mrs. Puller said. "We have ex-
hausted all possibilities of hous-
ing within our area."
Turning Fletcher Hall over to
women would entail renovating
the present building into two-
room suites each, housing three
women according to Shiel. Capa-
city of the dormitory would be
increased from its present 58 to
85 spaces.
At present Fletcher Hall, lo-
cated near the I-M Bldg., houses
some 58 men, about half of whom
are graduate students, the remain-
der "athletes.
No meals are served at Fletcher
and most of the men, work out for
their board. Room rent is $125
per semester.
Chicago House, the other unit
involved in the proposal, was turn-

ed over to women students last
fall when a wave, of last minute
cancellations by men left the
house with only 20 anticipated
residents. At the same time wom-
en's enrollment had showed a de-
cided increase and the decision
was taken to give the house over
to women for the year. .

COMMITTMENTS made to the
