Beginning its eighth year of
programming, the University
"Television Hour" will start two
new series this week.
"Television Hour," broadcast by
Detroit station WWJ-TV at 10
a.m. on Sunday, will introduce the
new programs, "Genius" and "The
Mansions of Man."
"Genius," to be seen on the first
half hour, will feature the achieve-
ments of men who have left their
influence on mankind and at-
tempts to probe to find the nature
of their genius.
So-called geniuses and their ac-
complishment in various fields will
be shown during the series, includ-
ing Beethoven, Michelangelo, Ma-
gellan, Plato, Shakespeare, Wash-
ington and Harvey.
The first program tells the story
of Mahatma Gandhi, discussing
his life and work. A special panel,
featuring ambassador G. B. Mehta
of India, and- including two Uni-
versity professors and an Indian
student, will attempt to answer
the question: "Gandhi: Saint or
Politician?"
"The Mansions of Man" series
will trace the history of achitec-
ture, opening its programming with
"The Glory that was Greece." The
program tells of the construction
of the Parthenon, a building whose
architecture is often termed per-
fection.

plished by keeping him (Hoffa)
in the AFL-CIO where it would
be possible to bring pressure to
eliminate any unethical prac-
tices?" Prof. Haber asked. Many
observers have said the AFL-CIO
could have more influence on the
Teamsters "when they are a part
of the family."
Because of the Teamsters' criti-
cal position in public life, to expell
them, he said, would create con-
fusion and bitter Jurisdictional
disputes if competing unions were
established. Strikes and higher
costs would be the results, he
said.
Dual Movement Unlikely
Prof. Ryder said a dual Team-
ster movement," with a duplicate
organization being run by the
AFL-CIO, would not be successful.
He remarked that the AFL-CIO
would try this only if there were
a large defection from the Team-
sters if they were expelled.
Prof. Ryder also indicated that
Hoffa has not done much in the
past about- eliminating unethical
practices and therefore there is
little reason to believe he will do
much in the future.
Federal legislation stemming
from the revelations of the United
States Senate's McClellan Com-
mittee on unethical practices in
the labor movement seems almost
certain.
Legislation Probable
"There is no question that
legislation will be proposed and
perhaps adopted to prevent re-
peated difficulty in the unions,"
Prof. Haber said.
A "strong possibility" of legis-
lation was the way Prof. Ryder
put it. But he said the big ques-
tions is "How can we get legis-
lation that will be effective. He
said that certain AFL-CIO ethi-
cal practice regulations might be
quite helpful if enacted into legis-
lations.
Rogin, however, took a differ-
ent view and said he is "discour-
aged" about such legislation. He
said present laws on the books
would do the job if they were en-
forced.
He added that this does not in-
clude legislation to allow public
accounting of labor and manage-
NAACP Sets
Meeting T oday
A meeting for the purpose of
organizing this year's program for
the University branch of the Na-
tional Association for the Ad-
vancement of Colored People will
be held at 7:30 p.m. today in the
Student Activities Building.
New officers for the o'ganiza-
tion will be elected at the meet-
ing. In addition, the agenda for
meetings of the year will be open
to discussion.
Laverne Crump, Grad., presi-
dent of the organZiation, noted
that one purpose of the meeting
is to "get ideas from the mem-
bers-at-large as to what things
they would like to see worked on
during the year."
Miss Crump said that member-
ship in the organization is "open
to everyone who is interested" in
the work of the group.

ment welfare funds, which would
be good.
He pictures a long but ultimate-
ly successful battle by labor
against corruption in the labor
movement.
"In the long run labor can
cleanse itself but the washing
machine will have to use a strong
bleach and many clothes will be
ruined in the process," he said re-
cently.
Prof. Ryder said the Teamsters
affair will have a retarding ef-
fect on the growth of the organ-
ized labor movement in areas
where organization is still rela-
tively light. He indicated the ef-
fect in other areas will be only
minor.
Would Injure Merger
He added that a Teamster ex-
pulsion would adversely effect the
AFL-CIO merger in states where
the bond has not yet been made
between the two old unions or
where it is still weak.
The disclosures of the McClel-
lan Committee, Prof. Haber said,
"no doubt have done labor much
harm but there is no evidence it
has seriously compromised its po-
sition or economic strength in in-
dustries where collective bargain-
ing prevails."
He said he doubted if the in-
tegrity of the trade union move-
ment has been seriously indicted
in the public's mind.
Few Unions Accused
"Witness that the McClellan
Committee's findings, on the
whole, have been confined to an
insignificant number of unions,
with the only large one being the
Teamsters," he explained.
"The American labor movement
today is pretty respected in so-
ciety. Most unions are relatively
free of associations and charges
like those leveled at the Team-
sters," he said.
T' Librarians

In Conference

sity libraries staff are participating

opment of reference sections, as he

posium sponsored by the reference

versity and special libraries will be
