COLLEGE ROUNDUP:
Critic of Gov. Green Silenced;

MSCExpectsI
The editor of the student news-
paper of Southern Illinois Uni-
versity, Carbondale, Ill., has been
removed because editorials criti-
cal of Gov. Dwight H. Green ap-
peared in the paper.
Part of one offending editorial
follows:
". ..there are three colors (this
paper) can't even mention ... we
can't afford to be accused of 'yel-
low journalism.' Neither can we
r-isk being called 'red' or even a
little bit pink. If you don't know
it by this time, the other forbid-
den color is green."
Enrollment at Michigan State
College is expected to break the
previous fall record, according to
officials.
Approximately 15,000 students
are expected in September.
Building appropriations of over
$3,200,000 have given officials the
green light in planning for the
record-breaking enrollrent.
Michigan State's long fight to
have the weather bureau station
moved from its present location
on campus is almost at at end.
A bill authorizing sale of the
station to the college has passed
through Congress, and needs only
President Truman's signature.
The Michigan State paper has
obtained some articles written by
Mlle. Eve (radium) Curie during
her stay in East Lansing last
March. The articles deal with
college life.
The paper headlines them in
French. "Les G.I. Vont a L'Ecole
aux frais de M. Truman" is a
sample.
At the University of Minnesota,
bird experts have entered the ar-
gument about the choice of an
official state bird. The argument
started when a Minneapolis news-
paper nominated the loon. Uni-
versity natural history directors
jumped into the fight and nomin-
ated the woodpecker.
The argument is still going on.
A strike by union employees
against the university for retro-
active payments is scheduled for
the latter part of August, accord-
ing to a union business agent.

Roger Adams, head of the Uni-
versity of Illinois' chemistry de-
partment, has been named to
head a group of six American sci-
entists on a mission to Japan un-
der the sponsorship of ,the U.S.
national academy of sciences.
The group will help Japanese
scientific bodies democratize their
scientific research.
Over 1,700 applications werei
sent out July 1 for university
space in the fall, the director of
housing reported this week.

EAST' LANSING, July 19-(P)--
Reticuliternes Flavipes will get
you if you don't watch out.
That's the warning of Prof. I.
E. McDaniel of the Michigan
State College entomology depart-
ment.
Flavipes, more commonly known
as termites or "white ants" are
veteran Michigan residents. These
Michigan old-timers will find
homes in a lot of the new dwell-
ings being put up for war veterans
and others, according to Profes-
or McDaniel.
Threat Ignored
"Contractors building now are
largely ignoring the threat of in-
vasion by termites," said Pro-
fessor McDaniel. "And people
planning homes in most cases ne-
glect to insist on a few simple
precautions for termite control."
Destruction by termites is a
very real threat in Michigan, ac-
cording to the expert.
"Termites thrive in the entire
southern portion of the state,
from Oceana County down," she
said. "The extreme west and
southern counties support the
most active colonies. Cities like
Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo and
Battle Creek, all former lumber
centers, are hardest hit by the
insects."
Schools Infected
Reports come in every week of
termite damage, the expert said.

Teaching is difficult at times be-
cause equipment is lacking, but
teachers were chosen for their
resourcefulness and they have
been doing a good job, Mrs. Ho-
bart declared.
"My training experience has
been expanded by teaching our
non-American faculty members
who still have a feudal European
tradition," Pearle Baxter, princi-
pal in Heidelberg, writes.
The average teacher is over 50
years of age. Women teach in
the first to the fourth grades, but
not above, except as cadets or
assistants. The German teach-
ers are astounded that a woman
is principal of the high school,
she said.
"Little by little my students and
I are getting an insight into the
minds of the German jugend and
why they work as they do, Miss
Baxter added.

Is Expected
DETROIT, July 19--(IP)-Most
1948 model passenger automobiles
are likely to be higher in price
than current models.
This is the opinion of many in-
dustry authorities. They assert
that aside from increased labor
and material costs, the outlay for
tools and other plant equipmentl
duce the re-styled and postwar
engineered new models will make
it impossible to hold to present
price levels.
By all present indications most
1948 model cars ill have added
features tonincrease manufactur-
ing costs and the cost of machine
tools and other plan equipment
reportedly is up two or thi'ee
times over' pre-war levels.
There will be some features,
such as automatic drive and
gearshift, added to a number of
models, which the car buyer may
.take or leave as he chooses.
