Cultural Need of Students
Viewed By Guest Instructor
By DIANE LABAKAS
Prof. Mikel Dufrenne, a visiting
French philosophy instructor, rec-
ommends that American college
students receive a better cultural
background in either science or
Prof. Dufrenne, who is teaching
at the University until Christmas,
explained that the lack of this
cultural background is due to in-
sufficient stress on cultural sub-
jects in high school.
"One thing I like about teach-
ing in American is that I can lec-
ture without interruption like they
do in France," he said. "Students
ask me questions after class."
Prof. Dufrenne began his teach-
ing career in the French secondary
school in 1933, before moving to
Poitiers University. "There is not
so large a gulf between the French
secondary schools and college as in
the United States," he declared.
Although college education is
free in France, not as many stu-
dents attend as would be expected
since secondary school is equiva-
lent to the first two years in col-
Prof. Dufrenne noted that al-
though most of the schools are
controlled by the government,
there are some private schools.
"Most students who graduate,
don't have much trouble finding
a job," he added.
Commenting on the present
PHILOSOPHY INSTRUCTOR-Prof. Dufrenne recommends better
science and language background for American students.

instructions from an unknown par-

After almost two months of ex-
cited investigation of the case,
Joint Judiciary Council penalized
five students with one semester of
social probation for "conduct un-
becoming a student." Of the five

Young Progressives' group died,
when it failed to turn in a mem-
bership list to the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs in the spring of 1953.
In the fall of 1953, LYL mem-
ber Paul Dormont announced the
folding of the Society for Peace-
ful Alternatives, of which he was
president. The Civil Liberties Com-
mittee also died out for lack of
Excitement returned in Decem-
ber, 1953, when State Chairman
Baxter admitted he had been sub-
poenaed by the Clardy Committee.
LYL had been cited as a Com-
munist-front organization by the
House Committee on Un-American
Activities on April 1, 1951.
After being subpoenaed by Clar-
dy, Baxter said he would refuse
to turn over membership and
financial records of the State LYL.
In April, 1954, it was revealed
that Sharpe and Shaffer were to
appear before the Clardy Com-
Baxter appeared before Clardy's
committee on May 5, 1954, and
told the committee to "mind its
own business." Shaffer, who was
named by witnesses at the Detroit
hearings as a Communist, and
Sharpe appeared before Clardy on
May 10 in. Lansing.
Both refused to testify. The Uni-
versity took no action against the
From then on, LYL attempted
to do very little publicly.
LYL did kick up a minor fuss in
late February and early March,
1955, over the scheduled appear-
ance of the Berlin Philharmonic
Orchestra at the University on
March 15. A threatened demon-
stration did not happen.
The local League has not been
active in the public's eye since the
spring of 1955.
Still, it has been active behind
the scenes to a degree that gradu-
ally decreased throughout last
year. Since LYL has never been
active as a group during the sum-
mer and since it has not been
active this semester, its death date
can be set at June, 1955, the close
of last semester.

Bones Provide New Method
For Archaeological Research
By JAMES BOW
A collection of bones is provid-
ing the basis for a research pro-
Ject of the anthropology depart-
One of the sponsors of the study
is the U.S. Army Quartermaster
Corps, which is interested in prov-
ing a means to identify war dead.
According to Prof. Fredrick P.
Thieme of the anthropology de-
partment, this research is also
providnig information in aspects of
the study of prehistoric man.
The essence of the research lies
in the fact that bones from ar-
chaeological diggings contain or-,
ganic matter which can give evi-
dence of the species and age of
Prof. Thieme commented that
this type of research can be car-
ried on now because of "specifi-
cally developed microtechniques,"
and went on to explain the tests
which can identify the bone frag-
When an animal is injected with
a serum from another animal spe-
cies, it builds up an anti-serum,
and this anti-serum can then be
added to the extracted organic
material from the bone fragment.
If this bone fragment is from
the same species of animal as the
original serum, then there will be
a specific reaction when the anti-
serum is added.
For instance, if a rabbit is in-
jected with a serum from a human,
then the rabbit's anti-serum added
to the extraction from the human
bone fragment will give a speci-
fic reaction showing that the bone
was from a human being.
Furthermore, prehistoric bones
may be tested not only to dis-
cover their species, but might also
be examined to see how close a
pre-historic group was to niodern
Prof. Thieme added that this
research can fill gaps in the study
of human evolution by studying
the organic matter in bones and
its rate of decomposition.
Thus, the age of a prehistoric
specimen might be determined by
a method different from the usual
methods of archaeological re-
search-that is, by finding out the
length of time it takes the organ-
ic matter in the bone to degrade
and other chemicals to form.
Blood types of groups can also
be found from bones, and,if the
frequency of blood types is dif-
ferent from those of races living in
the same area, then anthropolo-
gists have a better chance to dis-
cover the origin of certain races.
This study of the organic na-
ture of bones has been in process
for four years, sponsored by the
Army and the Wenner-Gren
Foundation for Anthropological

invited, the Union emphasizes, and
there will be no charge.

"Socialism works better because
there is more organization and de-

which are the best in the world,
are proof of this."

YOU CAN OWN YOUR OWN TUXEDO
WITH WILD'S PAINLESS PAYMENT PLAN
Yes, we've decided to meet the problem head on for you,
and take steps to assure every man on campus the oppor-
tunity to easily own his own perfect-fitting, up-to-date
Tuxedo-without undue financial strain.
If you're wondering whether you need your own Tux
even with an easy payment plan, just take a look at the
calendar of events, and apply a little simple arithmetic.
If you rent a Tuxedo as little as once or twice a year,
you're money ahead to own your own-and the fact that
you'll look better and feel better is a free bonus. As to
when you'll use it, just check off this partial list of oppor-
tunities the balance of this year alone-
