to request mixed living, although
this question permits it if they
wish," Dean Fuller remarked.
"Frequently," she added, "they
will do just the opposite."
Unless women request it, no at-
tention is given to religious faith
in assignment; this has led, ac-
cording to Dean Fuller, "to some
mixture of religions."
Some racial and national mix-
ing of women has evidently oc-
curred, at least in part from the
doubling-up, but these character-
istics still seem to be considered
more important than religion.
There is a basic difference in
the men's system.
Usually Reject Mixing
In addition to languages spoken
in the home and religious prefer-
ence, they are asked, "Are you in-
terested in a roommate of a na-
tionality or race other than
your own?" which administrators
claim is usually answered "no".
Administrators claim the res-
ponsibility of integration infre-
quently arises because the "Are
you interested . . . ?" question is
usually answered "no."
But one person pointed out that
this is true only with race and na-
tionality, since the question does
not refer to religion.
Men More Reluctant
Administrators in the men's sys-
tem appear more reluctant to mix
religions than those in the wo-
men's. Again the Jewish tendency
to go together has some influence,
Some officials said they do not
hesitate to mix Catholics and

Military analyst of The New
York Times, Hanson Baldwin will
lecture 8:30 p.m. Tuesday on
"Where Do We Go From Here?"
The program is part of the Uni-
versity Lecture Course.
Recognized as one of the out-
* standing civilian authorities on
military affairs, Baldwin is con-
sidered one of the most brilliant
columnists of our times.
During World War II, he cov-
ered most of the battle areas from
the South Pacific to North Africa,
England and France.
Baldwin has covered almost ev-
ery important military maneuver
and has made cross-country tours
of military posts since the war.

Job Quite Difficult
From 20 to 25 per cent of the
new men are assigned here. Sen-
ior Quadrangle Director John Hale
said a lack of time plus limited
space in the dorms makes OSA's
job "quite difficult."

Slauson' Junior High School's
halls were emptier than usual Fri-
day after a flu-type virus affected
380 pupils by the end of the day.
The specific virus remained uni-
dentified, according to a County
Health Department official.
Sore throats, body weakness and
high temperatures affected the pu-
pils, who represent more than a
third of the school's 988 students.
The illness struck Thursday,
when 180 students were kept home
and another 120 were sent home
during the day.

Kenneth H. McDonald, city Re-
publican chairman, declared yes-
terday, "Strong arm tactics,
threats and brute force do not be-
long in our American system or our
Ann Arbor campaign."~
He commented on the anony-
mous telephone threat made to
Republican Councilman Norman
J. Randall, Thursday.
The Republican chairman found
"it difficult to believe that this
cowardly threat could be inspired,
directed or conaoned by the leader-
ship of the Democratic party."
McDonald explained Randall was
a party leader and was, in a sense,
a speaker for the party. And when
he is attacked or threatened, this
is not only aimed at the entire Re-
publican party, but "also our
American political system."
Randall, who is not running for
re-election, had commented in the
press on issues raised in the local

terial infectiont ould beruled out

Health officials "didn't find any-

Health Department report that a'
series of flu-type virus infections
have been noticed in the city late-
ly, Dr. Theresa Woo, director of
health services of the city's public
schools, suggested the mass illness
might have been caused by 24 to
48-hour virus infections.
The Health Department official
said yesterday his department does
not have the equipment to properly
diagnose viruses. "A virus is so
hard to get a culture of that it is
difficult to tie down."
Principal Harold Logan of the
Slauson School said he had in-
structed teachers to carefully ob-
serve students in their classes, and
to send them home if they ap-

partment director, has been out of
