"Come on, in to the Union's 1956 Open House" the loudspeaker
loudly instructed passersby, many of whom had stopped to stare at
the two-tone, brownish-violet sports car on the street,
Those who followed instructions were greeted by a Union repre-
sentative wearing a maize and blue ribbon reading "HOST" and
passing out programs soon to be improvised into fans.
"Are they free, Daddy?" asked a local toddler with a premature
insight into the ways of the world. "Daddy" assured him that they
were, and the lad was soon happily sipping ginger ale and carrying a
gravity-defying, helium-filled balloon, compliments of a soft-drink
company and the Michigras committee respectively.
"Real good turnout," remarked the laconic swimming pool at-
tendeht, back for the first time since the pool closed last May.




Students were as gratified as the small boy to learn that things
were free, and they soon filled the billiards room, bowling alley and
swimming pool.
"Make an aisle," shouted a Union representative to the crowd as
members of 14 fraternities led their houses' cannine mascots into
the Grand Ballroom. Members of the Union's janitorial staff eyed
the dogs nervously, while affiliates inside cheered and laughed as
their favorites were awarded prizes of new collars for the "knobbiest
knees" or for having been adjudged "sexiest" in show.
"Brutus" displayed little platform dignity when reluctantly led
onstage, but, truer to character, "Caesar" growled ferocidusly as he
awaited his turn. Better-behaved animals paraded before a sign left
over from the earlier fashion show incongruously promising the best
in spring styles.

dion's -1956,
"Now let's be real brave and put these two steps together," the
Arthur Murray instructress entreated the gawky row of novices at a
Cha Cha step as she conducted lessons in the old Union Opera room.
"I'd like five singles, please," said a student who had just come in
to cash a check. Others went about their business unphased by the
festivities-the old man reading the paper in the lobby, the business
staff placing orders for food, the professors shooting pool in the
Faculty Club.
"That's the lightest frosting I've ever tasted," grinned a sticky-
fingered judge of the cake-baking contest as he groped for a napkin.
Although slightly dissappointed that there were only four entries, the
judges were up to the situation. After due deliberations and second
helpings "just to be sure," they awarded each cake a prize for one
of four hastily-contrived categories.



The "best-tasting" entry was taken home by its owner, Nancy
Hayden, '58, but within-five minutes "best overall effort," (a fluffy-
frosted block 'M') "best appearance" (a maize and blue automobile)
and "most surprising frosting" (it contained nuts) were completely
devoured by the hungry onlookers,
"I think I'm going home to bed," commented a Union official as
the afternoon waned and the crowd thinned out. The girls from Michi-
gras closed down their booth and let their balloons fare for themselves.
Twenty of them found their way to the union ceiling, posing an in-.
teresting problem for the Union maintenance crew.
And two eight-year olds fresh from the pool, their wet hair string-
ing down over their foreheads, scraped their fingers across the pan
of "most surprising frosting," having long ago learned that everything
was free.

GOP Race:
Choice Affects
Sallade's Plans
State Rep. George Sallade, (R-
Ann Arbor) said yesterday that
the gubernatorial candidacy of
Republican standard bearer Ddn-
ald Leonard "definitely affects the
possibility" that he will run.
"I'm not sure I necessarily want
to get into a three-way race" with
Leonard and Rep. Alvin Bentley,
(R-Mich.) whose candidacy Sal-
lade anticipates.

End Confab
MOSCOW (AP)-Nikita Khrush-
chev brought the 20th Communist
party Congress to an end late yes-

by approving his policies and
electing a new Central Commit-

chev a big hand, but there was
no che ring for Stalin.
"Everything on the agenda has
been taken care of," said the
r Soviet chieftain, who held the
center of the stage of the 11-day
confab of 1,355 voting Soviet Com-

foreign Communist guests.
The Congress wound up its work
after adopting resolutions:

Byrd Asks
For Racial
'Passive Resistance'
Sought For in South
F. Byrd (D-Va.) called yesterday
for "massive resistance" in the
South to challenge the, Supreme
Court's order for racial integra-
tion in the public schools.
Byrd made it clear in an inter-
view he is not advocating or con-
doning violence in opposing en-
forcement of the order but said
he wants Southern states to stick
together in declaring the court's
opinion unconstitutional.
"If we can organize the South-
ern states for massive resistance
to this order I think that in time
the rest of the country will realize
that racial integration is not go-
ing to be accepted in the South,"
he said.
"In interposition, the South has
a perfectly legal means of appeal
from the Supreme Court's order."
Interposition is a doctrine un-
der which some students of con-
stitutional government have con-
tended the states could refuse to
implement within their own con-
fines a Supreme Court decision
they felt did not comply with the
Constitution. Legislatures of some
of the Southern states already
have passed resolutions of this
While Byrd did not cast it in
that light, his call for Southern
unity on the school issue appar-
ently was akin to the "passive re-
sistance" urged by some propo-
nents of racial integration.
Rep. Adam Clayton Powell (D-
N.Y.) has urged a one-hour period
of nationwide, nonactivity by Ne-
groes on March 28, as a protest
against the arrest of Montgomery,
Ala., Negroes for boycotting seg-
regated city buses.
Police Apprehend
Robbery Suspect
Following the quick action of
an ex-officer, police yesterday
were able to arrest Jack Herman,
suspected of robbing a local res-
taurant of $61.
Alerted by the cashier who re-
fused to submit to Herman's de-
mands for money which were
backed up by a target pistol,
former pcliceman Henry Vogt
caught a glimpse of the suspect
turning into another restaurant.
Vogt then called police, who
immediately apprehended the sus-

in the country less than two years,

Montreal sextet' at the Coliseum

MacFarland pacing the assault
with four goals.
Despite the win, the Wolverines
dropped two full points behind

IMinnesota set up the next week-
end's series between the Huskies
and Michigan as the year's most
crucial games by defeating Colo-
rado College 4-2 and definitely
eliminating the Tigers hopes of a
second straight WIHL champion-
All that Michigan must do now
to assure itself of second place and
an NCAA playoff berth is win at
least two of the remaining four
games with Tech. Yet the Wolver-
ines will be out for the WIHL title
itself, a goal which necessitates a
sweep of both Tech series.
Michigan was in- command all

three more in the second and

Human Relations
Survey Begins
Two weeks of preliminary inter-
views of some 2,500 Ann Arbor resi-
dents began yesterday as a part
of the Ann Arbor Community Self
Survey on human relations.
Some 66 of the city's 550 blocks
have been selected for the pre-
liminary interviews. From these
the 15 questioners will be able to
determine which dwelling units
should be selected from when full
interviews are conducted in a
month-or so.

the highest single game mark for
the Wolverines this year.
The previous high was seven
against MSU, Colorado College and
the Detroit Redwings.
Michigan wasted no time in
taking the lead. Gerard Houle of
Montreal was sent to the penalty
box at the 28 second mark and
nine seconds later Dick Dunnigan
took a pass from EdSwitzer to
score and the Wolverines were off
and running.
Minutes later Neil Buchanan
beat goalie, Bob Bleau with a 30
footer which eventually proved
to be the winning goal. But Mi-
chigan had its scoring suits on
and before the period was over
Tom Rendall had added one and
Neil McDonald two more.
Quick Pair For McDonald
McDonald's pair came within
11 seconds of each other. The
crafty sophomore center was as-
sisted by Switzer on both efforts.
Montreal's lone goal of the eve-
ning came in the first period when
Pierre Renaud beat Lorne Howes
after taking a pass from Maurice
Duhaime. It was the fifth time
this year that one goal has stood
between Howes and a shutout. He
has one whitewash to his credit.
But on other than this play,
'Les Carabins' couldn't muster a
goal. On numerous occasions they
were called for offside as they
bought the puck over the blue
line, and when they did get safely

U' Television Reaches
Audience of 1,500,000
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This article is the second

Many full-time television stations would consider themselves
very lucky to claim 1,500,000 individual viewers each week.
University television not only reaches over that number, but does
so in cities as large as Detroit or as small as Cadillac. More iunportant,
quality is never sacrificed for commercialism.

Red Proposal
To Get Reply
WASHINGTON (P) - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower and Secre-
tary of State John Foster Dulles
are expected to dispatch next
week a-new "positive" rejection of
Soviet Premier Nikolai Bulganin's
persistent proposal for a British-
American friendship treaty.
Diplomatic officials speculated
that one way to handle the Bu-
ganin 'offer would be to make s
counterproposal of a treaty ac-
ceptable to the United States,
Britain and France. But they
have had trouble finding a formu-
la which would do this within the
requirements of American policy.
Various drafts have been worked
out in the State Department, for
consideration by President isen
hower and Sec. Dulles. Sec. Dulles
is understood to have come back
from his Bahamas vacation with
some ideas of the line to take.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the sixth
in a series of articles dealing wvith the
University's Faculty Senate, -its roles
and its problems. The series is based
on discussions with individual faculty
members and administrators.)
