Japanese C
Brings Neii

The trend in Japanese living to-'
day leans toward democracy, ac-
cording to Prof. Nobushige Ukai of
Tokyo University.
"Under the constitution adopted
after the war, people are enjoying
freedom legally, politically and
socially," the professor of Japan-
ese constitutional law declared.
Inasmuch as the older politicians
would like to restrict freedom and
return, to the old systems in some
ways, little can be done by anyone
to control the free popular vote to
amend the constitution.
Prof. Ukai noted that the youn-
ger generation, though more
liberal in its outlook, reverts to
the old system of property inheri-
tance for practical purposes.
"Although the land should be
divided equally under the new law,
he said, the first son accepts the
property and gives compensations
to other family members.
n The basic difference between the
older and younger generations is
reflected in their ideas toward the
new democratic government. The
older people still'feel that the state

The younger people see the state

benefit of the individual."
The Japanese people look to the
strength of the United Nations to
help them in case of war. "If the
UN fails, it may be necessary to
revise the article of ,the constitu-
tion renouncing war," Prof. Uka
added. The UN's action in Korea
and presently in Egypt is of great
concern to the Japanese people,

State Farmer
Output To Rise
Michigan farmers will steadily
increase their productivity in the
future through greater use of agri-
cultural equipment, a University
economist believes.
Professor Philip Wernette of the
Business Administration school
says this increased productivity
will be reflected in greater con-
sumption of fruits, vegetables and
other higher priced foods.

LYL Gains
Little Power
On Campus
(Continued from Page 1)
Because the LYL has never been
willing to reveal its members, it
has never sought recognition.
What the LYL wanted was a
change in the rules so that it
would be necessary only to list
two offices. It often asked Daily
writers to write editorials argu-
ing that change,
University officials were also
concerned with LYL activities
that caused disturbances or ig-
nored rules, such as the McPhaul
case reported in article three of
this series.
Hatcher Statement
After an LYL meeting in No-
vember, 1953, which featured
Thomas D. Dennis, Jr., a defend-
ant in the Smith Act trial at that
time, University President Harlan
Hatcher disclaimed any Univer-
sity responsibility for the meeting.
"As long as they are outside Uni-
versity confines, the University
cannot be responsible for meet-
ings which citizens might want
to hold," the president said.
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis has said, "I
have seen little evidence that in-
dividuals who are supposed to be
members of the Labor Youth
League have been very effective
in student affairs." Comparing
them with extremely reactionary
individuals who limit their effec-
tiveness in social action, Lewis
said, "Neither wants to be on any
team and both seem to 'want to
play the role of martyr."
The University has known of
the activities of the LYL since the
League began here in 1949. But it
could never take action against
the group, because LYL was never
State Police
The lack of University recog-
nition has not hampered the state
police, however. It has been re-
ported in The Daily, and the LYL
has known (despite the letter to
the editor this week which ex-
pressed surprise at this), that the
state police maintains a close
watch on LYL and other left-wing
activities. In fact, I was warned
of this by LYL members when I
first went to their meetings.
Yesterday, I visited the state
police headquarters in East Lan-
sing to learn their side of the
story. I learned that of more than
1,000 troopers and 69 detectives,
12 men are assigned to the Se-
curity Investigation Squad, which
investigates subversive activities
throughout the state of Michigan,
I learned that in 1955, the Squad
submitted 369 original complaints
and 4,258 supplementary reports.
It conducted 11,275 personal in-
checks for other investigating

with the Michigan Marching

Club president, said it is a shame
that students are not able to ob-
serve the card section. "Ticket
complications," he stated, "pre-
vent having Block 'M' on the east
side of the stadium, opposite the
Student section."

Jacobson commented on this
year's section saying that the suc-
cess of Block 'M' depends on it's
participants. He mentioned that

CARDS AND CAPES-Block 'M' members wear abbreviated maize
or blue capes which form a giant 'M' when the section is not
performing. Flashcards and instruction sheets are distributed to
the section before halftime in preparation for the program.

UP THE FIELD-Card section demonstrates a gridiron complete with goal post between the halves of
the Michigan-Minnesota game. Block 'M' frequently cordinates its designs with the formations of the
Marchinx Band. 'U' students receive only entertainment provided by the band while fans on the
south side of the field have a view of both activities.

PATTERN - flashed from field

READY-Block 'M' members hustle to prepare their cards as two UP-Field leaders receive their cue and raise the sign signaling
of their leaders on the field warn them of the next stunt. These their next stunt. In the week previous to each game Block 'M'
two sign holders watch the maching band for their cue to signal chairmen work with Dr. William D. Revelli, Director of University
the section's next design. Bands, in order to support the marching band with corresponding
flashcard designs.
