Prof. Sees
No Change
In Business
President Dwight D. Esenhow-
er's decision to run for a second
term leaves the basic, long-term
business outlook unchanged, ac-
cording to Prof. Paul W. McCrack-
en, an expert on business condi-
"It is an oversimplification to
k. say political developments have no
economic significance, but our eco-
nomic destiny is not strongly de-
pendent on any party or man,"
he said.
There are several reasons for
raising the question of whether
the business community need be
too concerned with the President's
decision, he .declares. One lies in
the lesson of history.
"During the prior administra-
tion some business leaders who ex-
pressed grave doubt about the eco-
nomic vitality of the country were
also in their own businesses ap-
proving large capital expenditures
for new plants, new products and
new equipment-all of which are
the basic ingredients of an ex-
panding and dynamic economy,"
the professor points out.
* Another point raised by Prof.
McCracken is that both political
parties want the same thing for
the economy.
"Both want full employment and
both are basically in favor of the
free market system of economic
,organization," he declares.
"Moreover," he continues, "be-
cause of the complex combination
of liberal and conservative ele-
ments within each party, even a
shift from one party to another
usually produce only a modest
change in the ideological center
of gravity."
While it is true that both parties
want the same thing as ,far as
broad objectives for the country
are'concern&d there are substan-
tial differences in the way various
political groups would go. about
achieving these objectives, he
Station To Poll
On Expansion
The University will canvass some
five thousand families in the
southeastern part of the state this
month for their opinion on a pos-
sble expansion of the broadcast
schedule of the University's radio
station WUOM (FM).
At present WUOM is on the air
weekdays from noon to 10:30 p.m.
and has a short Sunday schedule,
according to Waldo Abbot, direc-
tor of Broadcasting Service.
The poll, to be conducted by
mail, will sound out public opinion
on morning broadcast hours and
anextension of the broadcast week
into Saturday and all day Sunday.
University radio broadcasting
has reached an increasing number
of people throughout its 32-year
history, Abbot reports. The Uni-
versity now operates two radio sta-
tions,\ WUOM Ann Arbor and
WFUM Flint. In addition a tape-
recoring service provides 150 pro-
grams a week to commercial sta-
tions throughout the state. In the
fall, direct hookups bring football
broadcasts to more than a score of,
Michigan stations.
11th Photo Contest

eleventh annual collegiate photo-
graphy contest.

The fifty best photographs will
be sent around the country, with
the first showing at the national
convention of Kappa Alpha Mu
at the University of Oklahoma.

College Roundup
At the University of North Carolina, students attempted to see
whether women's suffrage could be voted into effect today if it did
not exist.
Turning the clock back to 1910 when there was no female vote,
a co-ed in the university's Philanthropic Society introduced the suf-
frage bill.
"Women do have intelligence and a great deal of influence," she
stated, "and they should have the right to vote."
But student representative John Brooks countered, "Women are
too busy with dressing and going to balls and acting the part of a
good hostess to be well informed on political matters."
Another representative declared, "Women should remain on
their own level. Women are too emotional to vote."
And even a co-ed representative agreed saying, "Old maids or
spinsters can be easily persuaded by handsome young politicians.
Women already dominate the home scene and domineer their hus-
bands by telling them what to do and how to vote."
The dreadful nature of the female was amply referred to in such
examples as Salome, Bloody Mary and Helen of Troy.
The bill failed to pass.

After the University of Manitoba Student Union telegramed the
University of Alabama to protest the treatment of Autherine Lucy,
the Canadian institution was besieged by letters from this country.
The Canadians were denounced in the letters as "meddling," and
supporters of "lousy British justice."
"Your Negroes (are) a hundred years behind ours and you still
treat them like animals," a Florida letter writer charged.

Ohio State brags of having "the Greekest" organization of all.
Sigma Epsilon Phi "fratority" is composed of both men and
women. But every member of the fratority is of Greek descent.
Membership in one of the "pseudo-Greek organizations" on
campus does not prevent students from joining the organization.
From the University of Alabama, the "Crimson-White"
student paper, although devoting virtually no attention to the Auther-
ine Lucy case, does note in a short article that it has been deluged
by mail from all over the world.
"An analysis of the number of letters shows that about 200 have
been received." It reports that the president and the student gov-
ernment association were receiving even greater numbers.
Petitioning Open For Exchange
Program Scholarship To Berlin

"Real statesmanship is required
to take the middle course in race
relations," Dr. Everett Ross Clin-
chy, President of the National Con-
ference of Christians and Jews,
said in an interview yesterday.
"It takes a period' of time for
individuals to accommodate their
ideas and emotions to drastic
changes," Dr. Clinchy explained.
"It is necessary to cut the nerve
of fear which causes the belief
that equal educational faculties
will lead to intermarriage between
races. Only time and education
will immunize these founded
fears," he added.
Dr. Clinchy is spending the
week on campus as the featured
speaker in the annual "Religion
Today" series.
The problems of peaceful ex-
istance between races is becoming
increasingly' important since two
thirds of the world's people are
Mongoloids or Negroes, the edu-
cator explained.
These people have reached the
point where they are going to
ride in whichever bus they prefer.
If society. fails to accept the fact
and change accordingly, our civili-
zation will be as dead as the Baba-
Dr. Clinchy urged moderation
and caution in dealing with race
problems. As long as these mat-
ters are handled under law and.
order, justice will prevail. Mob
rule must not be allowed to exert
undue pressure.
Explaining the purposes of the
National Conference of Christians
and Jews, Dr. Clinchy stated that
the organization exists mainly for
educational purposes. The NCCJ
was formed during the 1928 poli-
tical campaign when prejudice
against Al Smith was at a peak.
More than 100 hate and fear or-
gAnizations existed at this time.

judice, Charles Evans Hughes call-

After the Second World War the
National Conference of Christians
and Jews extended its scope to in-
clude international affairs. A sec-
ond group called World Brother-
hood was formed to deal with in-
ternational matters. At the pres-
ent time 65 offices of the National-
Conference of Christians and Jews
operate from coast to coast in the
United States.

A mass meeting will be held at

reclining seats and is air-condi.

No, these coeds aren't on the weight-lifting team. The
freight car above rolls so easily on Timken* bearings that
those gals can actually pull it.
Most freight car axles turn on bearings that are just plain
metal shoes. When lubrication fails, as it often does, metal
slides against metal causing a hot box-the No. 1 cause
of freight train delays.
Timken tapered roller bearings end the hot box prob.;
lem because they roll the load instead of sliding it. "Roller
Freight"-freight cars mounted on roller bearings-is the

more and more railroads are making the big switch to
"Roller Freight".
"Roller Freight" is the latest example of how the Timken
Company works hand-in-hand with all industry to keep
America on the go-by pioneering improvements in
machines and machinery that increase speed and preci-
