First Unit Scheduled
For '59 Completion

University officials got a "go-

yesterday on planning for two
North Campus do'mitory units.
Designed to house 1200 students

completion in the first semester

will be on a self-liquidating basis.

Bla-me On Wiring

Overloaded wiring was blamed by Ann Arbor firemen for a major
alarm fire yesterday that left most of Wild's men's store gutted by
flames, smoke and water.
Damage to clothing inventories and the building at 311 S. State

results of the fire. No one was injured.
Cousin's dress shop to the north experienced light smoke damage,

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the fifth
of six articles arising from a year-
long investigation of the Labor Youth
League at the University of Michigan
begun by writer Dygert when he was
Daily city editor in 1955-56. This ar-
ticle describes how LYL was seen by
the people around it.)
By JAMES DYGERT
A few years ago, the Labor
Youth League was a martyr for
many of the campus liberals, who
assumed the responsibility of de-
fending the LYL's freedom of
speech and assembly against the
inquisitiveness of Investigators.
These liberals were by no means
a majority of the students, but
they were vocal. Together with
LYL members, who welcomed
their support, they made noise
and attracted attention far out of
proportion to their actual num-
bers and influence.
However, even liberal student
leaders began to reject the LYL
a couple of years ago. In Novem-
ber, 1954, Paul Dormont's petition
to be endorsed by the Common
Sense Party (a short-lived stu-
dent political party formed by
student liberals) in Student Leg-
islature elections was denied.
Less than a month later, after
the LYL had advertised in The
Daily against the creation of SGC,,
a well-known student liberal,
Leah Marks, wrote a letter to the
editor saying, "I wonder if LYL's
advertisement against SGC was
placed in the knowledge that if
LYL takes a stand against SGC,
most students will vote for SGC.
Perhaps LYL hopes to use cam-
pus dissatisfaction resulting from
the passage of SGC to its own
Although Miss Marks overesti-
mated the LYL's ability to see
beyond the presentaher observa-
tion that most students did not
like the'LYL was correct.
Even before that, LYL had been
gradually becoming nothing more
than a curiosity to most students.
And students lost their curiosity
when they learned that attending
an LYL meeting might look bad
on their records.
In the last year or so, the LYL
has not even been able to get
studentsexcited about their. case
before the Subversive Activities
Control Board. One reason was
that LYL did very little advance
publicizing of their functions last
year; another is that students
don't want to get mixed up with
it; and both reasons proceed from
the suspicion created in post-war
years and early fifties by Con-
gressional investigating commit-
tees and revelations of police files

trate, dominate and influence

Big Ten Win
By DAVE GREY
Daily Sports Editor
Michigan's 1956 football edition
makes its final home appearance
this afternoon against Indiana with
the tag of "heavy favorite" placed
upon the still hopeful Wolverines.
As the Big Ten race enters an-
other dramatic finish, this after-
noon's encounter is mostly over-
shadowed by the two big games-
Ohio State at Iowa and Michigan
State at Minnesota.
From the Michigan viewpoint,
Iowa must lose and Minnesota had
better lose to give any chance for
Michigan to represent the Big Ten
in the Rose Bowl. Today the Wol-
verines can only hope, while at the
same time point toward a fair
Indiana squad that has been
known to win an upset or two in

Another interesting note for to-

where over 55,800 will put Michi-
gan's home attendance this year
up to an all-time high of over the
