STYLES IN CHINESE PAINTING are now on view at Alumni
Memorial Hall. Twenty-four scrolls comprise the main part of
the exhibit, showing examples from the early period of outline
and flat tone to the later works of more perspective. The paint-
ings are from the Ming and Ch'ing dynasties. They represent the
"so-called literary man's painting, which was a brilliant and ec-
centric representation of nature with the emphasis on literary
or philosophical content."

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the second
in a series of articles interpreting
progress of the Interfraternity Coun-
cil's cooperative buying program.)
By DAVE BAAD
Interfraternity Council officials
trying again to establish a co-
operative buying program among
University fraternities are using
their 1952 experience to best ad-
Extensive research two years
ago under the direction of I.FC
'resident Peter Thorpe, '53, cul-
minated in a cooperative buying
constitution later rejected by the
Fraternity Presidents Assembly.
Various reasons were given for
the rejection but skepticism over
some administrative aspects of
the proposed program was the pri-
mary cause of failure.
Fraternity presidents questioned
what. actual saving would exist
after administrative costs had been
paid with some foreseeing the pro-
ject as a losing proposition.
However, assistant to the Dean
of Men William S. Zerman said
coopseactually failed in 1952 be-
cause students didn't have suf-
ficient time to work on the pro-
gram. A full-time committee of
fraternity men is needed to pro-
duce the tight organization neces-
sary to win approval from fra-
ternity presidents, he concluded.
He also emphasized need of a
permanent alumni board consist-
ing of one alumni member from
all participating fraternities --
Alumni would add important busi-
ness and legal experience to the
Other important requirements
for a cooperative buying program
were stated in a tentative pre-
constitutional draft presented to
fraternity presidents in the fall
1) 1,000 boarders was set as the
absolute minimum number neces-
sary to place plan in operation.
(Undergraduate fraternities serve
about 1400 students.)
2) Each fraternity must own a
freezer with at least 15 cubic feet
capacity to store meat bought
through the cooperative.
3) Each member fraternity is
required to deposit $1 per boarder
for organizational costs. (The
amount would be accredited back
to the fraternity at the rate of
one percent per month of the fra-
ternity's total purchases.)
4) Four percent service fee is
to be added to total purchases of
each member. Three percent
would pay the salary of $5,000 a
year to a permanent cooperative
5) IFC's executive council would
perform four duties: authorize ex-
penditures from the IFC Procure-
ment Fund, recommend a pur-
chasing agent for approval by each
member fraternity, serve as the
immediate representative of the
member fraternities and superior
to the purchasing agent, and pre-
sent bi-monthly operational re-
ports to the member fraternities.
Most of the above stipulations
would be necessary if coop buy-
ing was to be established in Uni-
versity fraternities this year. How-
ever, IFC officials plan to attempt
more limited operations this year
than in 1952.
IFC Services chairman Keith
Coats, '56, estimated twelve or fif-
teen fraternities including about
600 boarders would suffice to open
operations. Plans call for co-
operation on only a few staple pro-

"I'm selling my car!"
This was typical of the reaction
on the campus. Some outraged
students are answering the al-
leged injustice with refusal to
submit. As yet no mass protest
meetings have been called and no
Student Legislative resolutions
proposed, but indignation is high.
The decision which caused this
furor was made obscurely enough
in some\alcove of the Secretary
of State's office. A seemingly
harmless, unidentified civil ser-
vant had the job of saying what
colors Michigan's license plates
would be, oblivious of the portent
of his decision.
Green and White
The new plates are to be green
and white. In itself this means

The news hit campus hard. One
aroused coed, waving her clench-
ed fist, referred to the fact that
the University colors, Maize and
blue are the hues of the pre-
sent state license. She roared an-
grily, "Let 'em have it for a
year." To this a red-faced law
student was quick to retort that
yellow and blue are the state col-]
ors of Michigan. "The fact that
they're the University's colors too
is immaterial," he shouted. He
demanded that the present com-
bination be continued in the in-
terests of justice.
Also among the few printable
comments was that of a naive
coed. Speaking of the choice of
green and white, she cooed "It's
as pretty as anything else."
The choice of the MSC colors is
part of a policy of going right
down the line of the state's schools,
honoring them with their colors.
In keeping with the dignity of the
tribute, the licenses will be man-
ufactured by convict labor.
The plates will go on sale Mon-
day at 9 a.m. at 1015 S. Fourth
Ave. for all who want to get theirs
early. Contrary to many reports,
the licenses will not be shaped
in the outline of a cow.
Letters of protest may be mailed
to Governor G. Mennen Williams,
State Capitol Building, Lansing.

Grange's Historic Afternoo
Features 57-Year Rivalry
Of all the many bitter rivalries in Michigan gridiron lore, per-
haps none fires the imagination more than the spectacular and
incredible 57-year rivalry with the University of Illinois.
Since 1898 the two teams have met 39 times, with Michigan
winning 25 and Illinois 14. Since 1924 the teams have met without
a break right down to this season, making it the longest unbroken
rivalry in Michigan football history, a series which will be renewed
for the 40th time this Saturday in the Stadium.
Michigan picked up five straight wins to open the series back
around the turn of the century, and as Yost's point-a-minute teams
reached the pinnacle of college football the rivalry was well estab
,When Michigan dropped out of the conference during the "teens,"
the rivalry lapsed, but was resumed again in 1919, as Illinois won
its first game from the Wolverines, 29-7. Following the 7-6 Illini
win in 1920, Michigan got back on the right track again by sweep-
ing both the '21 and '22 contests.
After a lapse in 1923, the two squads meet in Champaign on
Oct. 18, 1954 in perhaps the greatest football game ;of all time.
"Red" Grange made himself a gridiron immortal that day by
putting on the greatest one-man
show in the history of the game.
In the first ten minutes of play
the Galloping Ghost handled the
ball just eight times and ran 303
yards, scoring four touchdowns,
and posting an unbelievable aver-
age of 37 yards per carry.
', ...r Michigan's revenge came the
4 following year, when Bennie Oos-
' t. terbaan and Bennie Friedman put
S, on a brilliant display, and along
with Bo Molenda,'they briedled the
"Ghost" completely. The final
score-Michigan 3, Illnois 0.
The series then see-sawed dur-
Ing the late twenties, with both
teams winning twime, but starting
in ,1930 the potent Wolverines of
Harry Kipke rolled up four
straight wins. Kipke's team hit
the doldrums in the late 30's how-
,. ever, and the Illini capitalized by
winning three straight in '35, '35
The advent of Fritz Crisler and
s Tom Harmon brought a 1938 14-0
Michigan win, and after a tight
16-7 loss in '39, Harmon led a 28-0
t " Wolverine onslaught in 1940.
Longest Win Streak Starts
This was the start of the long-
est winning streak in this fabled
chigan's great powerhouse tops series, as Crisler's great war-time
teams picked up six straight wins,
with Michigan's 42-6 slaughter
in 1943 marking the most lop-
sided contest of the rivalry.
In 1946, Illinois broke the hex
with a thrilling 13-9 win as Bud-
dy Young and Dike Eddleman
