Scrabble -- En Francais


at noon and

1 P.M.

-Daily-Sam Ching
EVERY ENGLISH word spoken in La P'tite Causette costs a penny! At this exorbitant rate,
students are encouraged to develop their ability to speak French fluently. At the same time, the
club is slowly building up financial resources. Playing Scrabble with French words is the latest
activity La P'tite Causette has undertaken. "We learn new words and keep our eyes open during
the week for tricky words to use in the game," Marjorie Greenfield, '56, the president of the French
Club said. "The only difficulties," she added, "are the absence of acent marks and the lack of
more squares with vowels. But it's fun, anyway!" Next activity on the agenda: Bingo-en Francais.

Deane Tells
Of A frican
Tribal Life
"The lion was 75 yards from us
when we first hit him in the teeth.
He was only three feet away when
we finally killed him."
Exciting experiences such as this
were almost commonplace to Rod-
ney W. Deane, special student, who
spent most of his life in Africa.
Live in Tent
Deane and his cook lived in a
tent when they were traveling.
During one expedition Deane
heard his , cook shouting, "My
beans, my beans!" Rushing out to
see what was causing so much
commotion, Deane saw an ele-
phant hungrily devouring- their
dinner, a pot of beans.
Though not in revenge, Deane
tried elephant meat once. "I didn't
lik'e it," he said. "Maybe because
I knew it was elephant. Or per-
haps I ate the wrong part. The
trunk is supposed to be the best."
Although Deane tried eating
many unusual things, he never
tasted the Masai tribe's typical
meal. These natives are shepherds.
When they take their cows out to
graze they also carry their spears.
Lunch consists of blood taken from
the neck of their cows mixed with
milk from the animals.
Wear Copper Coils
Aside from their spears, Massai
natives can be recognized by the
copper coils they sometimes wear
around their arms and legs. This
"jewelry" is a sign of wealth,
Deane said.
But the Masai tribe is only one
of many different tribes. Some
read and write English while many
speak only their own native lan-
"Many of the natives' languages
are of Arabic, Portuguese and Eng-
lish origin combined," Deane com-
mented. "Often they add an '' to
to many English words-for exam-
ple, blanket becomes blanketi."
Aside from using different lan-
guages, the natives are divided ac-
cording to denominations. They
show the effects of different mis-
sionaries. "We knew which reli-
gious group they belonged to by
their names," Deane said.
Churchill Opposes
Yalta Publication
WASHINGTON (A) - British
Prime Minister Winston Churchill
was reported yesterday to have
blocked publication now of the
official record of the Big Three
meeting held at Yalta 10 years
State Department officials, it
was understood, decided to send
the papers to key members of
Congress on a confidential basis
when they were unable to get
Churchill's agreement to making
them public.
It was said the documents will
go early next week to members of
the Senate and House commit-
tees dealing with foreign affairs
and appropriations.
No reason for Churchill's oppo-
sition could be ascertained im-
The conference at Yalta, in the
Soviet Union's Crimea, brought to-
gether Churchill, President Roose-
velt and Premier Stalin.

Students Query Candidates
Regarding SGC Issues

The News
AP Foreign News Analyst
President Eisenhower's latest
statement of policy toward Amer-
ica's European allies meets square-
ly three major French demands.
1. He reiterated the intention to
maintain in Europe, as long as it
is threatened, a i"fair share" of
American military forces.
It is merely restatement of a
promise to do the same for West-
ern European Union as would have
been done for the European De-
fense Community had it been es-
tablished; an assurance that the
change in form has had no effec
on the policy.
Europe has assumed this, and
there has been no worry about it
there for some time. France, par-
ticularly, considers the presence
of British and American troops
a guarantee that there will be on
her side a balance for the power
of a revived Germany,
2. France is very much inter-
ested in the last-minute addition
to the Paris accords of provision
for a control agency within the
WEU - NATO setup to guard
against over-militarization of any
one member. This, too, is directed
at Germany. The President said
the United States would consult
with such an agency to help make
it work.
Considered Threat
3. He said "any action from
whatever quarter which threatens
the 'integrity or unity" of the
WEU would be considered a threat
to the security of members of the
North Atlantic treaty, and there-
fore would call for consultation
under the security clauses of that
That is a guarantee to France
against one of her greatest fears.
She wants assurance against even
the barest possibility that Ger-
many, once she is rearmed, might
withdraw from the union, and
either renew an aggressive atti-
tude toward Western Europe, start
a war with Russia for reunifica-
tion of Germany which would
drag in all Europe, or even join
Russia for the sake of regaining
'the lost territory.
Wants Assurance
France has always wanted to
be sure the force of the Alliance
can be turned against Germany
in any such case.
The President must have con-
sidered carefully the dangers and
needs of the moment before issu-
ing such a statement, which can
only be taken as an affront by
many Germans. He apparently
feels that Germany must and will
go through with ratification, while
France needs more bolstering.
This is, indeed, borne out by
the news from Europe this week,
with Chancellor Adenauer win-
ning back the support of coali-
tion forces which broke with him
during the Bundestag debate.
The major hope of proponguts
of WEU now is that the French
Senate will ratify the accords
without changes which would send
them back to the Assembly and
provoke a new fight there. Other
countries are standing in line be-
hind France, ready to ratify if
she does. President Eisenhower's '
assurances are carefully timed to
encourage this.
Claims Teachers
Overrate IQ Tests

"Will it be just another SL?" "
That's what students are ask-
ing about the Student Government
Council, according to a random
survey taken among SGC candi-
dates yesterday.
"Students have finally come to
the conclusion that SGC will be
different from SL;" one candi-
Labor Calls
'Ri ght to Work'
Laws Illegal
"Right to work" laws carry the
potential danger of being used to
obstruct labor's basic organizing
Tights, according to the American
Civil Liberties Union.
These laws, which have been
adopted in 17 states, provide that
no collective bargaining contract
can require union membership as
a condition of employment.
States that have "right to work"
laws are using them to avoid rent-
ing meeting halls to unions or al-
lowing them to circulate union
literature, the ACLU said. These
denials are, violations of the first
"The ACLU is concerned that
'right to work' laws may be in-
terpreted as an invitation to con-
tinue the denial of free speech
and assembly to labor unions,"
Patrick M. Malin, executive direc-
tor, said.
, Reaffirming its long-established
position, the ACLU commented
that closed shop does not violate
civil liberties as long as member-
ship in the union is open on a
"reasonable, non - arbitrary and
non-discriminatory basis."
Recently ACLU also took a stand
against the Post Office for refus-
ing to deliver a copy of Aristo-
phanes' classic comedy "Lysistra-
ta" on the grounds that it is ob-

date said, "but no unusual en-
thusiasm to get out and vote has
been displayed."
Campaign Issues
As far as students are concern-
ed, the issues of the campaign
are the interests closest to their
own individual hearts.
Prospective "SGCers" report
that residents of women's dorms
inquire about the "late per prob-
lem." Males and females alike
want to know what SGC can do
3bout the driving ban. Persons
with political backgrounds are
more inclined to ask: "What will
be the first tasks of SGC?" "What
authority will SGC have over stu-
dent organizations?"
"How will the new government
spend the approximate annual in-
come of $9,000 from the student
tax?" "How will SGC go about
setting up an efficient organiza-
tion?" "Do you really think SGC
will be able to accomplish more
than SL?"
Candidates Pessimistic
A SL member of long standing
who is now' running for SGC'said,
"It seems to me that the candi-
dates themselves are pessimistic.
Former SL members' fear that
SGC will be just a rubber stamp,
and will not adequately voice stu-
dent opinion."
Most candidates questioned ex-
pressed optimism concerning'
SGC's "power to get things done"
when the new organization comes
into being. Reasons given for the
bright outlook were three:
1-The Student Government
Council is the first student gov-
ernment of the University of
Michigan to be authorized by the
2-There is a guaranteed annual
income for SGC of over $9,000
from the student tax.
3-SGC has been "thought up,
originated, and born by the Uni-
versity." Would the University as
a whole or in any part destroy its
own brainchild?"
