Gore Relates
Recall Move,
Blasts Bigots
Leroy Gore leveled a blow at
"apostles of bigotry" Sunday night
and said that Communism is
feared only because those who fear
it are unsure of democracy's
Founder of the "Joe Must Go"
movement, the diminutive country
editor said, "The bigot is activated
by fear. He fears his enemies and
those who do not share his fears."
Gore said that he himself is
afraid only that .our democracy
may be gradually dissipated and
dissolved by compromise of its ba-
sic principles advocated by these
"apostles of bigotry."
By imposing restrictions on
Communism and communists and
prying into the lives of citizens,
the United States is deviating
from the democratic theory of
freedom of thought, he said.
Cites Fifth Amendment
He referred to the common crit-
icism of the Fifth Amendment
and polished off the topic by say-
sng softly, "If people object to this
amendment so violently, why don't
they vote its repeal?"
Gore read a pamphlet passed
out by "Wisconsin ultra-conserva-
tives" titled "Know Your Ene-
mies" to the audience. The intro-
duction stated that the people
listed were dangerous to the Unit-
ed States, either subversive. or
sympathetic to subversives.
It contained 250 names among
which were Estes Kefauver, Walter
lippman, G. Mennen Williams, Ad-
lai Stevenson and Harry S. Tru-
Gore interrupted his reading for
a moment to say, "I had lunch
with Harry a couple of weeks ago,
and if he's subversive, Liberace
suffers from an inferiority com-
Press Mentioned
He continued to quote names
from the pamphlet. The Detroit
News and The Detroit Free Press
were mentioned along with most
of the New York papers (including
the Times). Justice William O.
Douglas was included as well as
Thomas E. Dewey and Gore him-
"I have been insulted before,"
he said, "but never in such dis-
tinguished company."
As a result of the "Joe Must
Go" efforts to recall Sen. Joseph
McCarthy (R-Wis.), Gore found
it advisable to sell his paper, The
Sauk City Star.
Pressure from townspeople who
threatened his wife and daughter
led to his decision.
He concluded by saying that the
"Joe" petition netted more than
335,000 signatures, and called it
"the largest petition effort in the
history of mankind."
Levine States
Israel's Need
For Workers
Yehuda Levine, director of PA-
TWA mid-western offices spoke at
the Hillel Foundation Sunday.
Levine explained in an inter-
view that the work of the Profes-
sional and Technical Workers Ali-
jah is to place Americans in jobs
in Israel.
Levine explained that college
trained people with at least a year
of experience are needed. "There
is a decided lack of professional
people in Israel," Levine said.

Need Professional Men
Immigration ofr many barely
civilized people to Israel increases
the need for professional people.
The need for development of nat-
ural resources makes the demand
for agricultural engineers very
Social workers, medical workers,
engineers and teachers are re-
quired to raise the standard of
living of the country.
"Actual paychecks are not as
large as one would expect in the
U.S." Levine said. He explained
that high positions at an early
age and satisfaction in one's job
are compensations for the worker e
in Israel.

Varied Works of Michigan Artist
Become Landmarks on .U' Campus

"I never had any doubt that I
would bea sculptor," artist Carle-
ton W. Angell commented in his
Most kinds of work he has done
just could not hold his interest.
The two friezes on the side of
the new Ann Arbor Court House,
the busts in the rotunda of the
University Museum, the two great
lions at the entrance of the build-
ing, the bust of former Michigan
Governor Chase S. Osborne and
the Michigamua memorial in the
Union are some of Angell's prin-
ciple Ann Arbor productions.
Studied Under Taft
He was born in Belding, Mich. in
1887. In 1907 he enrolled in the
Chicago Art Institute and studied
under sculptors Lorado Taft and
Charles Mulligan,
"You musn't get the idea that
all I do is bust portraits and pla-
ques," interjected Angell. His large

with statutes and drawings is
divided into an office and a work-

a terracotta and ceramics com-
pany. He remembered walking
downtown in Sidney, 0., and see-
ing a familiar frieze on a bank
which was designed by architect
Louis Sullivan. "I'll be darned if
it wasn't one I had made for the
company," he said.
During the War he managed a
grocery business in Ilian, N. Y. In
1922 he joined the School of Arch-
itecture and Design facultyjas an
He worked nearly ten years in
the school, instituting the first
modeling practices in it's pro-
gram, before he joined the Mu-
seums staff in 1926.
Angell enjoys the variety of his
work. He has made several honor-
ary gold medals, one of which is
awarded annually for scholarships
at Ann Arbor High School. In
1928 he won a competition by
making a statue commemorating
the death of 40 school children in
Bath, Mich.

Angell's largest production is a
grand marble memorial in Arbor
Crest Cemetery in honor of the
Four Chaplains who died in the
Atlantic in 1948.
In his spare time, Angell gar-
dens in his large yard and fash-
ions furniture in his woodwork-
ing shop. He has three children
-Jennett, Douglas and Donald-
all of whom are married.
Some other campus works by
Angell are the Washington Bicen-
tennary Memorial on the corner of
Hill and Washtenaw and the
plaque in the Engineering Arch
commemorating Joseph Baker
Davis, past Assistant Dean of the
engineering college.
The bust of Dean Mortimer
Cooley, at the door of the En-
gineering Library and the relief
heads of seven early American
scientists decorating the sides of
the museum were also done by

More Beer!
Even in this old-time textile
and whaling city, where yarn
spinning is nothing new, people
sat up Monday when they heard
the story brought in by the
crew of the scalloper Sea Hawk.
They were 50 miles south-
east of Point Pleasant, N.J., the
crew said, when something hap-
pened that couldn't have been
pleasanter: They began haul-
ing in cans of cold beer-160
of them.
But a stranger angle of the
story was to come: The beer
was brewed in St. Paul's brew-
ery, Bremen, Germany, in 1939.
Sun Glasses
Worn Indoors
To Cut Glare
"Sun glasses" for classroom and
other areas where critical seeing
is necessary was recommended
Monday to Michigan's school plan-
ners, health authorities and light-
ing engineers as the long-sought
answer to visual comfort and ef-
ficiency problems.
This recommendation, which
would drastically reduce the glare
from daylight entering the work-
ing area, was offered by Charles
D. Gibson, head of the California
Department of School Planning at
Los Angeles.
Gibson spoke at a University
conference on visual environment
in school rooms with emphasis on
Gibson said that by reducing the
light transmission in the vision
strip to 12.5, the daylight bright-
ness is brought into balance with
the interior brightness to elimi-
nate all elements of glare. The vis-
ion strip is that part of the win-
dow area a person normally would
look through from either a stand-
ing or sitting position.
"The goal we have long been
striving for," Gibson commented,
"is a high level of well-distributed
illumination without glare in a
complete 360-degrete visual field."
Gibson stated that the problem
of daylight brightness has been ov-
ercome by use of a neutral gray
glass with 12.5 per cent light trans-
"This glass," Gibson explained,
"offers no color distortion, per-
mits unrestricted viewing of the
"It has the same effect as sun-
glasses worn on a bright day," he
"Geographical locations or cli-
matic conditions have little in-
fluence on this fixed 12.5 trans-
mission rate," Gibson added, "as
test installations have been made
and thoroughly checked from
coast to coast."

Assembly Association's housing
committee has announced that it
has chosen 372 dormitory rooms
for conversion to house the sur-
plus of women students expected
on campus next semester.
Decisions were made after the
committee, working with Assistant
Dean of Women Elsie R. Fuller,
had surveyed rooms in dormitoro-
ies all over the campus.
In addition to the 372 conver-
sions of double rooms into triples
and singles to doubles, the com-
mittee has "recommended that 50
women be housed in council rooms,
libraries and. recreation rooms in
some of the dorms.
Temporary, Temporary
These areas classified as "tem-
porary temporary" housing will be
used for only the first part of the
semester if the expected drop in
enrollment occurs.
Other rooms will revert to their
original status for the second se-
mester in as many cases as pos-
sible, according to Mary Jo Park,
'56, Assembly first vice-president
who has chaired the housing com-
mittee. Second semester enroll-
ment is usually considerably below
first semester.

The housing committee was for-
med in February after the Dean of
Women's office asked Assembly to
help find spaces for an estimated
425 women above present dormi-
tory capacity expected next year.
Consisting of representatives
from every women's dormitory the
committee was called "Assembly's
biggest and most successful pro-
ject this year" by Miss Park.
Immediately after it was set up
the housing committee formulated
psychological and physical criter-
ia by which to judge the capacity
of rooms.
Draw Floor Plans
After the rooms to be converted
were chosen floor plans for each
dormitory were drawn up indicat-
ing the changes. Room drawings
by residents who plan to remin
in the dorms next year have been
help up until final lists are given
to each house.
Recommendations included in
many cases the furniture which
students thought certain rooms
colud best accommodate. In some
houses conversions will involve
making a suite for three from two
single rooms.

The government is taking steps
to assure equal distribution of
Salk polio vaccine until Septem-
ber 1 when the supply is expect-
ed to meet demand.
A national advisory committee
will be set up "early next week"
to supervise state allocation of
Salk vaccine.
"By the peak of polio season,
enough material should have been
produced'to permit vaccination of
all children from ages 1 through
9 and 75 per cent of those up to
20, Welfare Secretary Hobby said.
A top level polio vaccine con-
ference of more than 100 medical
and drug experts was termed suc-
cessful by Mrs. Hobby. The con-
ference suggested establishment of
the advisory group composed of
polio, pharmaceutical, p u b l i c

formation from manufacturers and

per cent of the Salk vaccine is
committed to the National Foun-
dation for Infantile Paralysis for
the purpose of immunizing 30 per



cent of the most susceptible age
group, children ages 1 through 9.
By July 1 it will be possible to
immunize 29,600,000 children, Mrs.
Hobby announced.
It is expected that each state
will set up its own system. The
suggestion was made that each
governor designate an advisory
group composed of state medical,
drug and health officials to make
the distribution. Child population
will be considered when making
