CARELESSNESS:
Election Procedure
The Worst in Years

The Recording Angels

AT THIS writing no definite judgment of the
quality of elected SGC candidates can be
made. However, one thing is sure: the technical
handling of the two-day elections was the
most careless in years.
Specifically, some errors that occurred at
polling places were as follows:
1) Some seniors received ballots on whicli
to vote for senior class officers. Only juniors
are allowed to vote for these officers.
2) Some students didn't receive ballots for
Board in Control of Student Publications. All
students are supposed to be given ballots to
vote for the three people in these positions. (I
might add that the wording on the ballot in-
structions made a "vote for three" members of
the Board appear mandatory; a voter does
have the right to vote for only one or only two
people for this Board however, and instruc-
tions should have been worded "vote for no
more than three."
3) Polling booths at some spots were not
carefully manned during some periods in yes-
terday's cold weather; ballots were weighted
down on tables, and supervisors hurried to take
shelter, probably expecting voters to take
care of casting their ballots in their own un-
orthodox way. That this is sloppy handling of
elections is an understatement; the ramifica-
tions of such carelessness could be great, i.e.,
ballot forging, ballot-box stuffing.

4) At the business administration school
booth, voters had to stumble over sidewalk
piles of ballots for business administration
school officers instead of being handed them
in the usual way.
The above listed observations can be sum-
marized quite accurately with the word "care-
lessness," and members of the student body
have a right to expect efficiency and accuracy,
in balloting procedures.
A closing note on the just completed cam-
paign: only a few of the candidates saw fit to
discuss issues that truly do exist at this Uni-
versity when going from house to house mus-
tering up votes. Many of the campaigners
stressed over and over that there were no is-
sues and that SGC's problem now is mainly
one of organization.
If these same people represent the student
body on SGC, major campus issues and prob-
lems may take a back seat to petty details. It
is too early to predict an unsuccessful trial
period for SGC. But the recent campaign has
indicated that many of those who were elected
to SGC will have to devote a great deal of
consideration to campus problems and issues if
SGC is to become an effective student govern-
ment.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

IFC Takes Backward Step
To Censor 'Bad' News

TWO WEEKS AGO Interfraternity Council
took steps toward removing news restric-
tions. IFC agreed to let The Daily print news
on judiciary action taken at Executive Council
meetings and recommended the reporter first
contact the fraternity president of the house
involved. Tuesday IFC took steps backward to
its former censorship position.
Incensed over printing of news of a $25 fine
levied against Sigma Chi Epsilon at the first
"opened" Executive Council meeting, fraternity
presidents voted Tuesday to recommend again
putting Executive Council meetings off-the-
record. District representatives will carry the
fraternity president's recommendation to next
week's executive council meeting.
The recommendation prohibits direct re-
porting of jNdiciary action taken in executive
council sessions. The reporters are to inter-
view the IFC President after each meeting to
get selected information for print. The new rul-

ing leaves it up to IFC's discretion to choose in-
formation for Daily columns. There will be
little unfavorable information available.
THERE IS no reason for IFC to change its
previous commendable position on judiciary
action. If The Daily checks facts with the fra-
ternities involved there can be no chance of in-
accuracies. In reporting the Sig Ep fine the
Daily reporter checked with the fraternity be-
fore printing information on the fine.
The campus has a right to know and The
Daily a responsibility to report both the f a-
vorable and unfavorable "news" about an or-
ganization. Organizations as strong as the fra-
ternity system should have no fear of occa-
sional bad publicity. A system led by an IFC
voted tops in the country two years ago, and
tops in its class last year certainly can suffer
having occasional unfavorable news printed,

CERAMICS SHOW
Potter's Guild Celebrates
Fifth Anniversary Year

A SHOW of ceramics, practically all of which
is pottery is now being shown at the Rack-
ham Galleries through March 26th.
The Potter's Guild is a group of people, sim-
ply, whose main common interest is ceramics.
The members are from practically every pro-
fession one would expect to find in a University
town such as Ann Arbor. There are many stu-
dents, businessmen and women, housewives, a
professor, an architect and people.
In the past few years many such groups have
been organized throughout the country as the
general interest in ceramics has increased. The
Potter's Guild was fortunate from the begin-
ning. The people who started the original Pot-
ter's Guild had a long range vision as to what
a group of people working together with a
strong common objective could produce. The
original members and teachers were also fine
potters whose demands for quality work is still
obvious in the present show.

THERE was evidence of hard work as far as
glaze variety goes. Always one is beset by
the cry for more color in ceramics. Bright color
is difficult and not even desirable in some in-
instances. Color is only one of the many prob-
lems to be co-ordinated into making a com-
plete piece of pottery so don't be too critical of
those "drab" stoneware tones.
I personally enjoyed the sgraffito pots of
Mimi Doson and Kurt Schneider very much.
If one small fowl by Rhoda Lopez had been for
sale I would buy it. A beautiful small and quiet
brown bowl sitting in on a low table. Try a
potter's point of view and look a moment at
this one.
The Potter's Guild as a cooperative artist
group has had a successful five years as far
as I am concerned.
Here's to the next five.
-J. T. Abernathy

Hillel Stand. .
To the Editor:
IN A LETTER recently appearing
in The Daily it was stated that
"no decent Jew is willing to sup-
port Israel anymore," and the Zi-
onist movement was referred to as
the "international Zionist conspir-
acy."
We, the Student Government of
the Hillel Student Community
wish to make it clear that we en-
dorse and support the efforts of
the Zionist movement in our mu-
tual desire to hold in Israel a cul-
tural and spiritual center for the
Jewish people. To this end we at
Hillel have constantly given what-
ever aid is within our power to
the new state.
It is quite obvious that the writ-
er of the above mentioned letter
knows little about the meaning of
Israel and the Zionist movement
in Jewish history. The aims of the
Zionist movement are an integral
part of our program at the Hillel
Foundation, as Israel has become
an integral part of the life of Jew-
ish communities everywhere.
A case in point is our annual
student United Jewish Appeal
which opens every spring with our
traditional "Hillelzapoppin." The
proceeds from this function and
the fund raising campaign are
contributed to the UJA. an agency
whose primary purpose includes
the economic up-building and so-
cial and cultural development of
Israel.
We shall not here discuss the
political problems of Israeli-Arab
relations, problems which would
never have been encountered had.
the Arab states not initially violat-
ed the United Nations partition
plan by attacking Israel.
Our position, like that of every
other self-respecting Jewish com-
munity in the world is clear and
we deeply resent attempts to di-
vide the Jewish country as well as
to confuse the general community
on the question of Israel.
-Harold E. Josehart,
President, Hillel
Student Community

Name Problems...
To The Editor:.
HAVE BEEN following with in-
terest through exchange copies
the "cross-fire" and pros and cons
over changing the name of Michi-
gan State College to Michigan
State University.
Reading both the State News
and the University of Michigan
Daily, I often see New York men-
tioned as a state where there "is
no confusion over similar names
for two state universities,"
Perhaps to confuse the issue
more, let me point out that the
two similarly-named universities
in New York are officially known
as New York University and State
University of New York. NYU is
a private institution in New York
City and was chartered in 1831.
State University of New York
(1948) is composed of a number
of college units in all parts of the
state under one board of trustees.
There are some 22,000 students at
22 campuses, including 11 teach-
ers' colleges and two liberal arts
colleges. Many of the SUofNY
colleges are part of private insti-
tutions, as the State University
of New York College of Forestry
at Syracuse University and the
State University of New York Col-
lege of Home Economics at Cornell
University. There actually, then,
is no single institution that can
be called State University of New
York.

Maybe to further confuse the
issue: there is a College of the
City of New York (1929) which
is a public institution (four col-
leges) run by New York City. Also,
under the state government, in
1784 the University of the State
of New York was established. It is
a unique organization which over-
sees all educational activities in
the state and in no way is an edu-
cational institution as is known
in the general sense.
And out of all this, little actual
confusion arises because of names
among the thousands of students
in New York State.
Just to add a personal opinion
-I'm in favor of changing the
name to Michigan State Univer-
sity.

Peace Efforts...
To The Editor:
MR. EL-DAREER and Mr. Nak-
foor have certainly shown a
great deal of skill in abusing and
reviling their opponents, a capac-
ity they have obviously acquired
neither in the University, nor
adopted from the American press.
Expressions such as "espionage",
"Zionist conspiracy", '"political
gangsters", "murderers", "rotten
souls", and "underground organi-
zations", remind one of the simi-
lar vocabulary of the Nazi "Stur-
mer", and the Moscow "Pravda".
Mr. El-Dareer accuses Israel of
having won the war against the
Arabs by immoral means. He ob-
viously refers to the unforgivable
fact that, in 1948, 600,000 Israelis,
after being forced into a war by
40 million Arabs who threatened
them with extermination, dared
to fight bravely for their very
lives, and succeeded in defeating
the 7 Arab states.
Mr. Nakfoor claims that these
"international conspirators" have
violated the truce agreements be-
tween Israel and Egypt. Truce, in-
deed! Is truce killing soldiers at
the borders, burning villages, steal-
ing property, and murdering de-
fenseless civilians? Does a state
of truce mean planting bombs on
railroads, shooting at buses on
roads and boats on the lakes?
The Gaza incident cannot be
argued without taking into ac-
count the history of six years of
continued Arab hostilities. There
is only one permanent solution to
the Middle East crisis, one way by
which we can assure the complete
cessation of hostilities. This is a
solution consistently proposed by
Israel, and just as consistently re-
fused by the Arabs, namely, the
signing of an overall peace settle-
ment.
Your trouble, gentlemen, is that
you envision a "second rond," by
which you hope to succeed in do-
ing what you failed to accomplish
the last time. Israel may be a
small country, but it is a desperate
one, because there is no other
place where its people will be wel-
comed, because it is the only place
that they can call home.
Would it not be better to direct
your efforts toward peace, instead
of continually stirring up antag-
onism between Arab and Jew?

DREW PEARSON:
Ike Takes
Angus Over
Here fords
WASHINGTON - "Country Liv-
ing" at Gettysburg and else-
where dominated the conversation
when farmer Ike Eisenhower
lunched with farmer-Congressman
Lester Johnson of Wisconsin and
other freshman Congressmen the
other day. -
Johnson wondered if Ike's farm
near Gettysburg, Pa., was making
money, explaining that he himself
had tried to operate a farm while
living in the city, but the arrange-
ment was "not too profitable," and
he finally sold out to his tenant.
Eisenhower replied that he
would be satisfied with a small
profit from his Gettysburg acres
after leaving the White House,
"because I like living in the coun-
try and don't plan to work too
hard at farming.
"My farm is mostly pastureland
for grazing beef cattle," he said.
"That part of Pennsylvania has
been farmed so hard in the past
that there has been a lot of ero-
sion. As a result, I don't think it
would be worth while for me to
try to raise any crops on a big
scale."
"Getting back to my cattle," re-
marked the President, "I do not
have a big herd, but they are all
Black Angus."
"You should have settled on
White-Faced Herefords," suggest-
ed GOP Congressman E. Keith
Thomson of Wyoming.
"I almost did," disclosed the
President. "Hereford breeders of-
fered to donate me a herd picked
from different states, but I fin-
ally turned down the offer. I de-
cided on Black Angus because they
don't require as much care as
dairy cattle. Then, too, practically
all my neighbors in Pennsylvania
have Black Angus, and it is a lot
easier for me to exchange sires
with them."
Ike's Birthday Present
T HE PRESIDENT got a chuckle
out of a story told by John-
son, an outspoken foe of Senator
McCarthy.
"I was elected on October 13,
1953," recalled the Democratic
Congressman from Wisconsin.
"The day was your birthday and
my Republican opponent played
this up. He put ads in the news-
papers urging the voters to send
him to Washington as a 'birthday
present for Ike.' When the votes
were counted, however, you got a
Democratic birthday present-.
me."
Ike grinned but was noncommit-
tal when two of his Democratic
guests, freshmen Congressmen
James Quigley of Pennsylvania
and Herbert Zelenko of New York,
both insisted that he was their
"constituent."
"It stands to reason that I am
your Congressman, Mr. President,"
contended Quigley. "Your farm is
in my district."
"Wait a minute," spoke up Ze-
lenko, onetime champion wrestler
at Columbia. "Columbia Univer-
sity is in my district, and that's
the precinct where you voted the
last time. Until you change your.
voting address, you are still my
constituent."
Eisenhower laughed louder than
anybody when Zelenko added as
an afterthought:
"You know, this is one of the
few times I have been invited to
lunch by a constituent when he
didn't ask me for a favor."
Less McCarthyism

ACLOSED-DOOR session of the
Joint Committee on Atomic
Energy revealed that the latest
Eisenhower appointee to the Ato-
mic Energy Commission appeared
to have the same kind of back-
ground as Dr. Robert Oppenheim-
er. However, Admiral Strauss
doesn't plan to persecute him as
he did Oppenheimer. Neither do
the Republicans. Strauss is not
anxious to antagonize the scien-
tists any more.
The new appointee is Dr. John
von Neumann, renowned Prince-
ton scientist; and it developed in
closed-door hearings that he had
come to the defense of Israel Hal-
perin when the latter was tried as
a member of the Soviet espionage
ring in Canada.
Unlike Oppenheimer, however,
von Neumann was not found
"guilty" by association.
The Princeton scientist admitted
to the Congressional committee
that during the Canada spy trials
in 1946 he joined others in send-
ing a telegram to the Prime Min-
ister of Canada urging a "fair
trial" for - Halperin, a Canadian
university professor. The telegram
also expressed confidence in the
"innocence" of Halperin, later ac-
quitted when he stood "mute" and
the court could not produce evi-
dence that he gave any informa-
tion to the spy ring.
Dr. von Neumann further ad-
mitted to the committee:
"He (Halperin) told me in 1940
thn - hr 2 Ca1A-v-. raC-

Tati is loose and lanky with the funniest
gait ever. From the time he first drives to a
seaside resort in a car that could shame Jack
Benny's 1908 Maxwell, until he somehow de-
parts in same, we have about the funniest
film of the year.
As in Tati's first hilarious movie, Jour de
Fete (The Big Day), there is very little dia-
logue, thusly closely resembling a silent movie.
The sparse bits of talk are dubbed in English,
and while not the best job, it is not as bad as
most dubbings of foreign films.,
SPRINTING IN his ever-present sneakers, Mr.
Hulot wanders into one situation after
another. He manages to row a collapsible boatA
and naturally collapses it mid-water, wins ten-

Robert Walker who forces a young tennis play-

situation. Walker's attempts to pin his crime
on his unreceptive friend '(Farley Granger)
form the chilling climax. As this is a plot-sus-
pense picture, your reviewer is reluctant to re-
veal any more of the story. Suffice it to say
that the final action on a run-away merry-go-
round in a crowded amusement park is one of
the most thrilling scenes ever filmed.

a difficult part. He strangles, helps blind
men across streets, and chit-chats with society
matrons, all credibly and almost tenderly. His
