For the first time in University history, a student political party.

Called "The Common Sense Party," the budding organization plans
to run qualified students who accept programs embodied in its plat-
form and to develop a more active and meaningful student govern-
To date, CSP has no officers or official membership. It was form-
ed by 30 students, active in campus affairs and concerned over the
future of both SL and the proposed Student Government Council.
Meeting Scheduled
An organizational meeting chaired by last year's SL president,
Bob Neary, Grad. and scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Thursday, will mark
CSP's first attempt to gain campus-wide membership. Tentative ad-
ministrative approval for the meeting has already been granted.
"Common Sensers" indicated they would attempt to secure ap-
proval of CSP at Tuesday's meeting of the Student Affairs Committee.
Platform Drafted
Meanwhile members are working on a final draft of CSP's platform

He noted, though, that gove

Three Given
Nobel Prize
In Medicine
Polio Research
Led to Salk Test
Three American scientists were
awarded the 1954 Nobel Prize in
medicine and physiology last
night and became the first to re-
ceive the coveted prize for polio
John F. Enders of the Harvard
Medical School, Thomas H. Wel-
ler of the Harvard School of Pub-
lic Health and Frederick C. Rob-
bins, now at Western Reserve
Medical School received the prize
for discovering new weapons in
the fight against Polio.
Weller is the son of Carl V. Wel-
Ier, chairman of the department
of pathology of the University's
medical school.
Knew of Nomination
Contacted last night, Weller's
father commented, "Of course, we
were very pleased to have him get
it. We knew he had been nominat-
ed but the final word didn't come
through until this afternoon."
Prof. Thomas Francis of the
medical school, who is now tabu-
lating results of the Salk vaccine
tests, said, "I think it's wonder-
"Enders. Weller and Robbins
were able to establish poliomyeli-
tis virus in cultures of tissue. This
means that instead of having to
use monkeys and apes in experi-
ments, much of the work can bet
done in a test tube," explained
Prof. Francis.
Rapid Advance Possible
"This made possible a rapid ad-
vance in diagnosis and the devel-
opment of preventive measures.
The Salk vaccine is an outgrowth
of their original work," said Prof.
They will share $35,056 in
prize money to be awarded by
Swedish king Gustav Adolf at a
traditional ceremony in Stock-
holm Dec. 10. Awards for litera-
ture, physics and chemistry, not
yet announced, will be handed
out at the same time.
No Peace Prize
Announcement has already been
made .that no Nobel Peace prize
will be awarded this year.#
The three scientists carried on
their work in the Research Divi-
sion of Infectious Diseases of the
Children's Medical Center, in Bos-
ton, Mass. Enders is director of
the division and Weller is assist-
ant director.

outlined objectives.

been endorsed by CSP, but party
members are presently seeking

for SL. Any student interested in
running on CSP's ticket may con-

UAW Attempts
Better Wage
Plan Program
The proposed United Auto
Workers-sponsored annual wage
plan "does not guarantee an an-
nual salary, but a guaranteed sal-
ary during lay-off," said Ralph
Showalter, assistant to Walter
Reuther in the Educational De-
partment of the UAW-CIO, here
last night.
Addressing a Sigma Rho Tau
smoker, Showalter explained that
the plan will guarantee a full
work week. He pointed out that
similar plans in the packing and
sugar industries provide for a
specific amount of money to be re-
ceived annually.

.'Caine Mutiny' Role Source of Pride for Paul Douglas Philanthropist

"If it had taken fifty years to get the role of Captain Queeg
in the 'Caine Mutiny Court-Martial,' I'd consider the time well
spent," commented Actor Paul Douglas in an exclusive letter to
the Michigan Daily.
Douglas, who is appearing in the theatrical adaptation of the
Pulitzer Prize winning novel scheduled at 8:30 p.m. today and to-
morrow in Hill Auditorium, iade his screen debut six years ago in
"A Letter to Three Wives." Since that time he has become one of
the most popular and well-known actors in the motion picture in-
Termed "Golden Boy"
"According to the reports," Douglas stated, "I had zoomed to
fame in a matter of hours, I was a genius and a golden boy, a bril-
liant newcomer who would go far. Actually," he continued, "it had
taken me something like 25 years to become an actor."
In spite of the variety of jobs he has held, Douglas admitted,
"I always wanted to be on the stage and never made any bones
about it. I told everyone, all my friends and even a few enemies."
