CHAIRMAN OF LYL:
Wofsy To Test Right
Of Public Assembly
By LOUISE TYOR
The question of whether "any
group in Ann Arbor has the right
to hold a public assembly to, hear
the Marxist view on any question"
will be tested this year by the La-
bor Youth League, according to
Leon Wofsy, national chairman of
Traveling through the Midwest
to discuss the issues of the coming
elections, Wofsy mentioned that the
prohibition on the airing of views

"God never intended man to eat
spinach-He made it for cows."
Melbourne Murphy, health serv-
ice administrative assistant, quot-
ed the late Professor Thurman
Rice of the University of Indiana
when asked if the recent rumors
that spinach was harmful had any
valid medical basis.
Popeye, Children Differ
Some medical men currently be-
lieve that children's dislike for
spinach may be a defensive me-
chanism. In a recent letter to the
British Medical Journal, physi-
cians Joan and Normand Banj
state that "the food that builds
muscles in Popeye seldom does the
same in Junior."
Spinach contains .031 oz. oxalic
acid per 3.5 oz. of spinach. This
amount of acid, if taken internal-
ly, would cause the percipitation
of calcium from the blood stream.
This action might result in con-
vulsions leading to death. Most of
the oxalic acid in spinach is not
available for body use. Rhubarb,
beet greens, and Poke also contain
-4 large amounts of this acid.
"Parents who force their chil-
dren to eat spinach because of its
high iron content," a pediatrician
at the University hospital com-
mented, "might just as profitably
have their kids suck ten-penny
nails. They contain the same
amount of iron." The doctor con-
tinued, "Spinach is a good green
vegetable though, it contains chlo-
rophyll, if you like chlorophyll."
Dr. Henry Swain of the pharma-
cology department said, "I believe
spinach has its value. It's food for
the soul and makes kids learn who
Marshall D. Shulman, '37, has
assumed his duties as associate di-
rector of the Russian Research
Center of Harvard University.
Under Prof. William L. Langer,
director of the Center, Shulman
will administer basic studies of the
economic, political and social or-
ganization of Russia.
r He has just returned from
France where he studied opera-
tions of the French Communist
Party in relation to developments
His study was made possible by
a $15,000 scholarship under the
Rockefeller Public Service Award
which he received in February,
While at the University, he was
a member of Michigamua and
managing editor of The Michigan
After he was graduated from
the University, Shulman joined
the staff of the Detroit News and
was a State Department specialist.
During World War II, he was a
glider pilot and a psychological
warfare officer in the Pacific.
in Ann Arbor "stands out much
more so than at other places."
No Legal Sanction
Last semester members of the
LYL were unable to find a public
building in which to hold meetings,
and this semester they intend to
find out "if the First Amendment
does or does not prevail in Ann Ar-
bor," said Wofsy. "There is no le-
gal sanction that would in any way
explain the deprivation of these
rights," he added.
Wofsy also said that he feels
there are many people who would
like to come to a LYL meeting, or
hear the LYL point of view; some
of these naturally would come out
of curiosity, or "simply to heckle,"
he commented. However, the LYL
would be willing to have an open
meeting if a place could be found.
Formed For Young People
"The LYL was set up of, by, and
for young people," Wofsy ex-
plained. "The main concern is
with the problem of young people
based on the principle that the in-
terests of youth are tied up with
the immediate and long-range
needs of workers."
"It is an educational organization
which bases itself on the philosophy
which views all questions from the
interests of the working class -
Marxism.' The group is open to
all, regardless of whether they ac-
cept the principles of Marx; as
long as they are in sympathy with
the aims of the group.
The program of the LYL is "pro-
gressive, pro-labor;" the activities
"cover thegamut of any political-
ly-minded group," said Wofsy.
They include educational forums,
rallies and debates on all social is-
sues. The group also takes part in
all forms of legislative activity con-
cerned with young people.
Views on U.S.
By MERLE MAYERSTEIN
David Barker, Grad. and Alan
Mewett, Grad., two Englishmen en-
rolled in the law school, are learn-
ing about America.
Both students already have their
law degrees in England, and are
members of the English Inns of
Court, composed of four profes-
sional law schools.
Barker is a member of Inner
Temple and has his law degree
from the University of London.
Mewett, on the other hand, belongs
to Gray's and has two degrees; one
from Oxford and the other from
the University of Birmingham.
Reasons For Trip To U.S.
Their reasons for coming to
Michigan lie in their desire to see
America, and the University law
school's international fame. Cook
fellowships from the law school
are taking care of their educational
expenses, and Fulbright travel
grants paid their expenses here,
and will take them back to Eng-
America's friendliness and hos-
pitality have made the biggest im-
pression on them. "We haven't
met an unpleasant person yet,"
Discussing education he said,
'The professional schools of Amer-
ica are as good as any we've got."
Barker on the other hand, believes
that people mature quicker in Eng-
land than they do in America. They
don't leave high school until the
age of 18 or 19 and then go right
into professional schools.
"The basic difference is that we
live to learn, and you learn to
live," Barker observed.
Mewett is majoring in compara-
tive constitutional law and intends
to teach, either at Oxford, Univer-
sity of Birmingham or University
of London. Barker, studying civil
law, will practice in England. ,
ST. BERNARDS EYE PRIZE
Victorious St. Bernard To Win
Brandy Keg in Chariot Race
By LOU SAUER
With a wooden brandy keg as
the prize, Delta Upsilon and Lamb-
da Chi Alpha will hold the first
annual all-campus St. Bernard
Cha'riot Race at 11 a.m. today.
The race will begin at the north-
west end of the diagonal, finishing
at the engineering arch.
Phyllis Frank, '55, Delta Delta
Delta, will represent her sorority's
support of Delta Upsilon's Brandy
by leading him to the starting line.
Pi Beta Phi will send Dorothy Al-
laben, '56 Ed., to attend to Ma-
jor's needs at the beginning of the
race, as a sign of its support of
Lambda Chi Alpha.
Dick Buck, '55, said that he or-
iginally got the idea for the an-
nual race a few days ago when he
was thinking of the rivalry between
the two dogs, whichvare the only
two St. Bernards on campus.
Friendship To Start
"I thought that it was a shame
that these two dogs hadn't gotten
together before this, and the char-
iot race seemed a good way to be-
gin their friendship," he said.
The two fraternities and the sup-
porting sororitiies built Roman
chariots yesterday. The members
stressed that any St. Bernard is
welcome to enter, provided, of
course, that he brings his own
At the start of the race, two
small dogs will be sitting in the
chariots. It is hoped that they will
remain in their respective vehicles
to cheer their St. Bernard on to
victory. The members, however,
think that this is too much to hope
Both Major and Brandy love
to chase squirrels, but there the
similarity ends. There is a rumor
going around the two houses that
Major is madly in love with a
Mexican hairless that Brandy de-

jor von Schwartzhold the Fourth,

house two years ago after the
death of their third St. Bernard,
Major Better Behaved
According to Dick Good, '56
A&D, president of Lambda Chi,
Major is a much better behaved
dog than were his three predeces-
sors. "Our other dogs used to
frighten the mailmen and butt their
heads into trees. Major is a very
good-natured dog," noted Good.
Every year Major attends the an-
nual Christmas party, where he
plays with the children and even
lets them ride on his back. Con-
cerning other canines, though, Ma-
jor's affability is subject to suspi-
cion. At the present time he is
nursing a wound on his leg re-
ceived in a scuffleiwith another
member of his species.
Brandy, on the other hand, is
appalled at the idea of a human
sitting on his back. The DU's got
him about six years ago when one
of the members, on a trip to Cana-
da, sent him to the house as a
present. His history is not as tran-
quil as that of Major.
Five years ago, Brandy ran for
SL on a write-in campaign. Had he
won he would have revolutionized
student government at the Univer-
sity. Last year he won the contest
which elected the most popular
dog on campus.
The wooden keg (empty, how-
ever) to be awarded as the prize
in this morning's race, is encircled
by a metal band upon which will
be engraved the name of the win-
ner. Everyone is invited to watch
the race and cheer for their favor-
