Michigan Plans Reopening
Of Cheboygan Water Route
COMPLETION SET FOR 1956:
Work Begins On Activities Building
DETROIT(LP)-The scenic Che-
boygan inland water route, a pop-
ular cruise course in the early
1900's, will be reopened in another
year, the Michigan Waterways
Commission said yesterday.
The Army Corps of Engineers,
who designed the plans, will let
contracts for the $326,000 project
within the next few weeks.
Preliminary work will begin this
winter and full scale operations
will be carried out next summer.
The route originally was opened
up by the War Department in
1876. It runs from Cheboygan up
the Cheboygan River to Mullett
Lake, through to Indian River to
Burt Lake, up the Crooked River
to Crooked Lake and across
Crooked Lake to Conway, a small
village about three miles inland
from little traverse bay.
D e c a d e s ago, flat-bottomed
steamers cruised the 35-m i1 e
course. But the route became filled
with sand bars and decayed
pilings, and erosion-caused hair-
pin turns have further cut down
Plans call for dredging the en-
tire route to a minimum depth of
five feet and width of 30 feet.
Many of the treacherous turns will
be straightened out and several
jetties will be constructed to con-
trol the amount and depth of sand
Fred B. Lif ton, acting director
of the Waterways Commission,
said engineering problems make a
further cut from Conway to
Little Traverse Bay prohibitively
costly, but pleasure boats could
be transferred across land to Lake
Michigan in a matter of minutes.
Lifton said the commission is
considering constructing numerous
parks along the route.

SITE BEING CLEARED FOR NEW
STUDENT ACTVITIES BUILDING
Set by USSR
WASHINGTON(P) The Atomic
Energy Commission reported yest-
erday the Russians have set off
another nuclear explosion, "in-
dicating a continuation of their
tests of nuclear weapons."
Here is the text of the announ-
"Lewis L. Strauss, chairman of
the U. S. Atomic Energy Commis-
sion, stated yesterday that an-
other Soviet nuclear explosion had
occurred in recent days, indicat-
ing a continuation of their tests
of nuclear weapons.
"Further announcements con-
cerning the Soviet test series will
be made only if some information
of particular interest develops."
Only Friday; Gen. Thomas
White, vice cheif of the Air Force,
told a Pentagon gathering of in-
dustrial, business and professional
leaders that the Russions are per-
fecting new atomic weapons and
The Soviets are carrying out an-
other nuclear test, White said,
"right after the summit confer-
ence at Geneva" on peace. Last
Aug. 4 the AEC disclosed that Rus-
sia had resumed the testing of
nuclear weapons. The announce-
ment then said that the tests
began "within the past few days"
and "this may mean the begin-
ning of a new test series."
A meeting will be held for girls
interested in working on either
decorations or tickets committees
for I-Hop at 3 p.m. Tuesday in the
I-Hop publicity committee will
meet at 4 p.M. tomorrow in the
ibility of the new building was
made up of the Deans of Men
and Women, James A. Lewis of
the Office of Student Affairs, Uni-
versity architect Lynn W. Fry, J.
Swanson, building architect, rep-
resentatives of University Vice-
President Wilbur K. Pierpont's of-
fice and the student representa-
tive, Richard Good, '56.
The Board of Regents accepted
the preliminary plans and, blue-
prints at its July meeting.
Condemnation in Progress
Condemnation proceedings are
still in progress but, according to
Good, these will not hold up the
start of construction. He added
that the new building will be fl-
nanced from the general Univer-
sity fund and that no specific ap-
propriation has been made by the
Problems such as light, loca-
tion, amount of space to be al-
loted various groups, type of con-
struction, and necessary facili-
ties all were given serious consid-
eration by the committee accord-
ing to Good.
Holding 56,000 square feet for
student offices and meeting rooms,
the new building will ease the
overcrowded conditions that or-
ganizations have had to contend
with in their present locations.
Provision for additions to the
building has been planned for so
that when needed, necessary ad-
ditions can be easily made.

Harry Lunn, '54, former Daily
Managing Editor, presided over the
National Student Association Con-
gress held in Minneapolis, August
In preparation for the general
theme of the Congress which dealt
with the aims of the educational
community in the United States
today and the position of student
government in making students
realize these aims, Lunn worked
closely with educational organiza-
tion during the past year.
Made up of student government
representatives, from member
schools, the Congress offered cam-
pus leaders a chance to exchange
and clarify ideas.

tries, representives from observer
schools who are considering join-
ing the NSA and college adminis-
trators, the Congress was divided
into a number of commissions and
subcommissions, each dealing with
specific problems such as the 18-
year-old vote, student rights and
responsibilities, man power, dese-
gration of the schools, finances
and other problems related to
campus and community life.
Congress Passes Code
One of the main items passed by
the Congress was the Model
Educational Practices Standards,
which states that '"while it is
recognized that some of the un-
democratic practices in higher ed-
ucation have their roots in history,
every effort should be made to
change those practices where they
are incompatible with democratic
The code continues to say that
the NSA will seek to secure and
maintain equal rights for all people
and secure equal opportunities for
education at all levels.
Covering admissions to colleges,
college employment policies, schol-
arships, grants and loans, class-
room procedures, student teacher
training, restrictive clauses in stu-
dent social organizations and cam-
pus housing, the code outlines what
the NSA Congress members felt
were fairest measures any school
can offer students.
Voting Age Discussed
Another area of interest con-
cerned a resolution calling for, sup-
port of the 18-year-old vote. Hank
Berliner, '56, SGC president drew
up this resolution as part of his
job on the Legislative Activity Sub-
committee. Only nine votes de-
feated the question.
Donna Netzer, '56, SGC vice-
president, cited the opportunity

lems with other schools, but the

Body President's Conference which
attempted to instill and bring out
the obligation of the student gov-

igan Region of the National Exec-
utive Commission which served as
the steering body for the NSA.
