the social sciences was being ush-
ered in.
The era came in and the boom
came down. Detroit papers carried
a story of an alleged "ticket scand-
al" within the Association. Re-
gents, cowing to public pressure,
stepped in and intellectual free-
dom at Michigan stepped out. Ad-
ministrators seized control of As-
sociation finances and said that
"no engagement for entertain-
ments shall be entered into with-
out the approval of the President
of. the University." The coup had
Led by Harry Burns Hutchins,
president of the University, Mich-
igan entered years of enormous
physical expansion. Dollars came
from the State Legislature and
alumni gifts. Hutchins didn't want
student radicalism, anarchy and
corruption to embarass-away any
of these funds. He was succes-
sful. Efforts were even made. to
curb the autonomy of the student
press 'and other organizations.
Where public relations won,
student freedom lost.
In 1913, the Regents enforced a
blanket denial of political speechs
in Hill Auditorium. In 1920, this
was extended to include all Uni-
versity buildings. Public relations
was traveling a "safer" road. The
great issues of the First World War
and the League were not given free
Slossen Writes Daily
Restriction of partisan speeches
knew few bounds. In a letter toe
the Daily in 1923, Prof. Prestoni
Slosson of the history departmentr
wrote, "If 'party politics' be made
to include every possible questionl
of foreign poliy and evcen all i-
formatio nabout foreign affairs,
not muh that is worthwhile an
be learned about the world today
on the Michigan campus."
In 1924, cropped up from the
faculty-administered, Regent-sup-
ervised, publi-placating Committee"
the edit, "No addresses should be
allowed which urge the destruction
or modifiation of our form of gov-
ernment, by violene or octher un-
lawful methods."
This curbed the "radicals" of
the twenties.
The year 1935was a big one and
abad one for free speech.John
Stratchey was denied the lecturn
here because there were some soc-
ialists in a group that tried to
sponsor him. He had to speak in
Granger's Hall before an over-
flow crowd of 1,000.
Prof. Slosson and William Wein-
stone, Mihigan secretary of the
communist party were refused
University sanction. The Slosson-
Weinstone debate was held in the
Unitarian Churh before a packed
Speakers Banned
Thus, in 1935 the lecture ban
structure under which the Univer-
sity operates today was formu-
lated. The Marine Corps and vari-
ous patriotic groups were threat-
ening the University Knights
Templar made a resolution warn-
ing that they would withdraw aid
to students if "such conditions" as
free speech were tolerated on
Anti-communist bills were le-
gion in the State Legislature and
at the same time a debate was in
progress cocerning how many
appropriation dollars the Univer-
sity would receive in relation to
"another state college.,
In that environment, the Re-
gents clamped down, drafting the

present Committee on University
Lectures. The Daily editor of 1935
had this to say about the Com-
mittee, "Authority which punishes
the expression of opinion with
which it does not agree is not
American; it is Russian."

Before the year is out - if pres-v
ent construction schedules are notF
upset drastically - another 650
miles of turnpike will be added to
the nation's growing network off
highspeed toll roads.
Although the new federal high-
way construction law calling for a
41,000-mile interstate system of
free superhighways has probably,
permanently shelved any furthert
major toll road planning, toll pro-
jects under way before the law was3
adopted made it a busy summer

Practically all of the 157-mile
Indiana Turnpike opened Sept. 16,
making possible virtually nonstop
travel on 874 miles on multi-lane
toll "cruiseway" from New York to
the eastern fringes of Chicago.
In a few more weeks the Mid-
Baroque Trio
To Tour Upper
The University Baroque Trio will
tour the Upper Penninsula from
Nov. 4 to 8 in a Concert-Education
Series the University Extension
service has announced.
This unique trio is composed of
Nelson Hauenstein, flute, Florian
Mueller, oboe, and Marilyn Mason,
harpsichord. No other trio uses
this combination of musical in-
"Baroque" was chosen for. the
name of the group because of the
period of music they play-that of
the 17th and 18th Centuries. The
forerunner of the piano, the harp-
sichord, is the instrument of this
period. The particular harpsichord
that Miss Mason uses is quite un-
usual. It is collapsible and is trans-
ported on tours by station wagon.
The unusual thing about a harp-
sichord, Miss Mason says, is that
the string is plucked, like a guitar,
rather than struck like on a piano.
In their fourth season, the trio
has performed in various towns
and cities throughout Michigan
for the U-M Extension Service and
music clubs. They have also made

west will get another large sec-
tion, of operating "dream road"
with the opening of the 234-mile
Kansas Turnpike angling south-
west from Kansas City through
Wichita to the Oklahoma border
at South Haven. The target date
for completion of the Massachus-
etts Turnpike stretching 123 miles
west from Boston towards Albany,
N.Y., is Nov. 15. In Florida, work
on a toll superhighway connecting
'Miami and Ft. Pierce is expected
to be completed by the first of the
When all are completed, these
projects will add 650 miles to the
1,846 miles of toll highways which
were in operation last spring.
Besides the roads finished or
scheduled for completion by the
first of the year, work is in pro-
gress on about 300 additional miles
of toll roads. The biggest chunk is
in Illinois, where work is under
way on a 193-mile system which
will carry traffic from the Indiana
Turnpike around Chicago to the
Wisconsin line near Waukegan
and send spokes from Chicago to
Beloit, Wis., and Aurora, Ill.
Turnpikes Linked
New Jersey is linking up its Gar-
den State Parkway with the New
York Thruway, and New York is
sending a spur from the Thruway
near Albany to the Massachusetts
Turnpike. A 30-mile toll road is
under construction in Texas be-
tween Dallas and Fort Worth and
another short one of 35 miles is be-
ing built between Richmond and
Petersburg in Virginia.

Despite this activity, the effect
of the new federal highway legis-
lation is already apparent. In Ok-
lahoma, for instance, passage. of
the federal law last June caused
officials in that state to cancel
plans for a toll road linking Okla-
homa City with the nearly finished
Kansas Turnpike. The state now
plans to build the road under pro-
visions of the new bill, which
means it will be a free expressway.
Federal Measage
Pointing out that the national
system contemplated in the fed-
eral measure-with the U.S. Gov-
ernment paying 90 per cent of the
cost-will provide the necessary
highway facilities between large
centers of population, Russel E.
Singer, executive vice president of
the American Automobile Assn.
has predicted flatly that large-
scale toll highway construction will
It is generally believed that ul-
timately all the operating turn-
pikes which follow routes designed
in the federal interstate system
and meet construction specifica-
tions of the federal program will
be incorporated in the free high-
way system. The method presum-
ably will be for the federal govern-
ment to make road money avail-
able to the states to pay off toll
road bond holders. With their in-
debtedness thus erased, the roads
could then become tollTfree.
