ung Demoerats Claim Liberal Policy

At least three campus political
groups claim their policy is based
on liberalism.
The Young Democrats are in an
indefinable position: they call
themselves liberal, but some others
claim they're not liberal enough.
* * *
president of the YD's until last
week, would define it saying,
"We're more liberal than the na-
tional Democratic party. You
might say we follow the liberal
Democratic wing." .
Eric Stockton of the English
department, who, with Prof.
John P. Dawson, of the law
school, acts as advisor to the
group says, "our main concern
is to preserve civil liberties. We
believe in efforts to put human
rights over property rights."
The YD's look on liberalism as
more of an approach to problems
than as an answer to them. They
don't want to be called reformers.
One student voiced it as not be-
lieving "in government control for
the sake of government control-
only when it will benefit the peo-
Not all Young Democrats sup-
port the liberal beliefs of the ma-
jority of the group. Those who
'would accept a more conservative
outlook, however, constitute a very
small minority in the organization.
Nevertheless, a good deal of effort
is directed to make the club poli-
cies satisfactory to both sides,
probably at the loss of more ag-
gressive action.

the Democratic party. Their pur-
pose on campus, Sleicher has de-
fined, is "meant to give young peo-
ple political experience"
"We think students should
know how politics work," Sleich-
er said. "You might say we act

To do this, the YD's have set up
arbitrary 16 to 40 year old age lim-
its, open to all students or towns-
people with any political beliefs.
But like all campus political
groups, this does not seem to be
enough encouragement. It isn't
difficult to get students to join,
but getting them to participate is
quite another problem. With a
signed membership of 52, the aver-
age attendance at YD meetings is
about 20, often less, while a good

executive committee meeting.

members, however, while many
members prefer concentrating
their interest more on national
controversial problems. A good
many YD's are taking part in the
Green Feather campaign and are
clamoring for a debate with the
Young Republicans on almost
any topic, especially on Civil
Liberties, McCarthyism or Asian
Newly elected president Ralph
Goldberg, '56, has been most anx-
ious to add new aggressiveness toa
the club, but has found that no
new ideas seem to be coming forth.
Outside of the city project, the
big event of the semester for the
YD's will be a Citizenship Clearing
House, to be held in conjunction
with the YR's April 26 and 27.
Broken into Republican and Dem-
ocrat Days, the clearing house is
expected to bring top party peo-
ple to the campus and stir up
more interest in politics for the
college man.
IT IS ON large national political
issues that YD's find their great-
est strength. The club gained new
vitality in the election campaign

of 1952 when it combined with the
Students for Stevenson to stir up
support for their candidate. Last
year a Dollars For Sense campaign
to aid the Democratic leader was
very successful netting over $1,000.
The anti-McCarthy campaign
which has found some support
on campus, gets a good part of
it from the YD's.
"We think McCarthy is further-
ing his own goals and is not sin-
cere," and opinion at an execu-
tive meeting of the YD's stated. On
Communism the executives said:
"Communism is awful, but if a
person wants to be a Communist,
let him. Fanatical anti-Commu-
nism is a greater danger."
And as for the Congressional in-
vestigations due here next month:
"They're a lot of smoke, but no
fire," says club membership chair-
man Kevin Keane, Grad.
Greenberg and ex-president
Sleicher agree. "We have to ex-
press our disgust," says Goldberg.
Sleicher added: "What they
should be looking for is subversion.
Instead they're looking for heresy.
They should stay off. They have
no business investigating heresy
at a University."

Cornell University debate
team will vie with the Univer-
sity team tomorrow at 2 p.m. in
4203 Angell Hall.
Topic of the debate is "Re-
solved, that the United States
should adopt a policy of free
trade." Representatives of the
University team are Duane
Schaffner, '56 and Walter New-
ton, '57. Cornell's representa-
tives are Hugh Schwartz, '54,
and Jay Schwartz, '55.
The debate will be tape re-
corded for classroom use. The
two teams will also discuss how
to improve activities in college.
This discussion will be broad-
cast on radio station WUOM.
Brown Asked
By LEldersveld
T'o Debate Hall
With city elections only four
days away, the city hall issue is
gaining attention.
Prof. Samuel J. Eldersveld of
the Pdolitical science department,
chairman of the Democratic City
Committee, yesterday challenged
Mayor William E. Brown, Jr. to a
public debate on the proposed
city hall and the suggested site
for the structure.
* * *
IN A PUBLIC letter, Prof. Eld-
ersveld suggested that a discussion
of the issue in terms of cost to vot-
ers and relocation of E. Ann St.
merchants, if that site is favored,
be held tomorrow, Saturday or
Sunday night.
Mayor Brown could not be
reached for comment on the
challenge late yesterday.
Mrs. Florence Crane, Republican
City Committee Chairman last
night answered charges made by
the Democrats in a Third Ward
meeting. She said "I refuse to be-
lieve that the Mayor will not do
the utmost to aid in the relocation
problem, should the voters favor

human beings and the kinds of

Rackham Lecture Hall.

audience, typifies a particular per-

AIDED BY a drawing board and
crayon, the cartoonist illustrated
some of his many characters and
explained 'what they 'represented.
Exemplifying so-called "do-

quality each one of us has, and
tries to tell everyone what is
good for them," Kelly comment-
Kelly's Beauregard Bugle-Boy,

ways accusing other people of the
things that are wrong with us.

ToB Made
Of Vaccine
Prof. Thomas Francis, Jr., of
the public health school is head-
ing a group of doctors who will
evaluate reports on the effective-
ness of the Salk polio vaccine dur-
ing the polio season this year.
This group will compile reports
on 500,000 to 1,000,000 children,
both those who were vaccinated
and those who weren't, who con-
tracted polio in test areas. The
team will then be able to tell whe-
ther or not the vaccine is effec-
* * *
THE SALK vaccine, developed
by Dr. Jonas E. Salk of Pttsburgh,
vill be administered by shots con-
taining more than 10 billion dead
polio viruses apiece. Each child
vaccinated will receive three of
these shots.
Since the viruses in the in-
jection are dead, they cannot
cause polio. However, they have
enough power to stimulate the
formation of antibodies.
With more than $7,500,000 pro-
vided for the tests by the National
Foundation for Infantile Paraly-
sis, the vaccine is being manufac-
tured by pharmaceutical firms on
a nonprofit basis.
If it passes the test, the vaccine
could be supplied in large enough
amounts for everyone. Scientists
working on the project have said
that, if successful, one series of
shots is all that would be required
to give children lifetime protec-
tion from the disease.
After that, babies could be vac-
cinated early in life, such as is
now done for diphtheria, small-
pox and other diseases.

flit by Crisler
University Athletic Director Her-
bert . (Fritz) Crisler expressed
regret yesterday at the Na-
tional Collegiate Athletic Associa-
tion television committee recom-
mendations for a nationally con-
trolled TV football program.
Crisler said, "I'm disappointed
they didn't adopt the regional plan.
It would meet the NCAA aims, ob-
jectives and purposes better."
The committee had favored a
plan for 12 nationwide telecasts,
with regional TV games restrict-
ed to Thanksgiving day.
The Big Ten TV committee took
immediate issue with the recom-
mendation and asked its confer-
ence members to vote against the
"We believe the colleges must
find a better way to respond to the

UnvriyGe lbTo Begin Extended Tour


A guided tour through a St.
Louis brewery is one of the few
things the Men's Glee Club hasn't
accomplished during its yearly
spring tours in the past.
However, during past trips the
club, directed by Prof. Philip Du-'
ey of the music school, has toured
a shoe factory and several paper
mills in addition to other factor-,
ies, according to glee club vice-
president Don Smith, '54.
* * *

with a concert tomorrow night at
Wilmington, Ohio, as part of Wil-
mington College's Artists Series.
Saturday a joint concert with the
University of Indiana Singing
Hoosiers will be given in Bloom-
ington, Ind.
The group will leave Bloom-
ington about 5 a.m. the next
morning for a long bus ride to
Rocky River, Ohio, a suberb of
Cleveland, where they will be
sponsored by the high school

choir. Monday night they will
appear in Canton, Ohio, spon-
sored by the University alumni
club there and the Signet Club,
a service organization.
Leaving thelevel plains of Ohio
for the Appalachian Fountains,
the glee club will sing the next
night in Warren, Pa., under the
sponsorship of the Junior Cham-
ber of Commerce there.
Alumni clubs will sponsor the
