Progressive Party Convention
Emphasizes Civil Liberties

state), all doubts would have been
dispelled by the tremendous ova-
tions given to Wallace, Taylor, and
No Jim Crow -
The resounding chant "Jim
Crow must go!" clearly indicated
determination to wipe out all
forms of segregation so disgrace-
ful to a democratic country. A
sample of the attack on segre-
gation is the resolution dealing
with the armed forces:
"Jim Crow in the armed serv-
ices is the American version of
Hitler's practices of racial super-
iority which American soldiers
fought to destroy. Its continuation
by the two old parties makes
hollow any pretense that young
Americans are today being drafted
to insure democracy at home or
"We therefore say to the Dem-
ocratic President: Eliminate Jim-
Crow by executive order. We say
to the Republican Congress: Elim-
inate Jim-Crow by legislative act.'
We say to both old parties: "Jim
Crow must go!"
This sample of the realistic
handling of current American
problems was duplicated in state-
ments dealing with peace, espe-
cially the denouncing of the war
and "get tough" policies of the Re-
publicans and Democrats, and the
call for repeal of the present
draft; the statements on freedom
especially for political, religious,
and racial minorities; and the
statements on abundance with a
strong labor plank calling for re-
peal of the Taft-Hartley Law,
elimination of pay differentials
based on race, a call for enact-
ment of a minimum wage act, and
a full-scale Federal vocational and
on-the-job training program.
This independent youth organ-
ization has set out to work effec-
tively in all areas of American
life to bring to realization an un-
complainingly progressive pro-
gram. There is no absence of
qualities needed to make a group
effective-deep belief in principles,
enthusiasm for the cause, and
willingness to work hard, as has
been demonstrated by a tireless
group of convention delegates who
worked day and night in the con-

HIT 'EM AGAIN!
Pint-Sized Livewvires Lead
MerryChase at 'U' Nursery
By JIM BROWN
The big question every morning
at the University's Nursery School,
located in the University High
School building, is who will wear
out first-the teachers or the kids?
Every morning, promptly at 8:30
sixteen little livewires are met at
the school door by their teachers
to begin the morning's chase. To
say' that they're active is a gross
understatement-they never stop.
Their daily routine starts with a
careful physical examination, af-
ter which they begin a program of
directed play-directed as :long as
the two teachers can keep up with
Aside from sundry physical ac-
tivities, such as running around
in little circles, their favorite oc-
cupation is to play with water
paints, according to Elizabeth Al-
den, one of the teachers. She adds
that the reason for the preference
is probably because it is a messier
activity than they can find at
On bright days the children play
in the inner court of the high
school building. Here they have
their choice of swings, slides,
sandboxes, or again, just running
Although the little girls are us-
ually able to carry on more intri-
cate activities because of their
more rapid physiological develop-
ment, one teacher believes that
even at that early age, the boys
As we watched them at play it
was hard to distinguish any dif-
ference-it seemed as if they all
talked continually. One little fel-
low in particular took great de-
light in playing haunted castle. He
spent the better part of an hour
howling like a ghost into the ears
of his playmates, completely ob-
livious to the admonitions of his
When it is necessary to disci-
pline the children, a method of
isolation is employed, according to
Miss Alden. The offender is sent
off by himself and usually he is
so anxious to get back in the fun
that he repents immediately. Aside
from one little boy who took a
fiendish delight in trying to club
his playmates over the head when
the teacher wasn't looking, we saw
very little need of discipline.
Ats11:30, when it is time to go
home, the children are *met by
their parents at the school doqr.
Often they have notes pinned on
them by their teachers and they
are tremendously proud of these
notes. One little girl screamed,
"pin it on me again," when her
mother took it off.
The nursery school is part of the
University's plan to give education
students a chance to observe ac-
tual teaching practices in action.
It also acts as a laboratory to
study the educational growth of
children. The age limit runs from
three to four and one half years
and there is always a long waiting
list of parents who wish to enroll
their children in the school.

Classes To Be Held
In CampRoth Sept.
The University's forestry school
will offer practical instruction in
the use of aerial photography at
Camp Filbert Roth, in the Uppert
Peninsula, Sept. 5-11.
Offered for the first time in
1947, the course is being repeated
because of many requests. Appli-
cations for admission should be
sent to John Carow, director,
Camp Filbert Roth, Beechwood,
The University's forestry camp is
on the west shore of Golden Lake,
just off U.S, 2, 15 miles west of
Carow and Frank Murphy, both
of the forestry and conservation
school, will be instructors for the
course. They emphasize that the
course is designed to acquaint the
practicing woodsman with the
technique essential for using aerial
photographs in his work. The
class will be limited to 20 stu-
"Well qualified men without
college training need not hesitate
to enroll for the course," Carow
said. "Any person who has had
some good combination of consid-
erable cruising and mapping expe-
riences, surveying, knowledge of
timber types and logging, will de-
rive a great deal of benefit from
the course if they have a personal
interest, aptitude and willingness
The students will learn by doing
during the one week of intensive
training with no time spent on
difficult theory or mathematics.
Each student will be provided with
the necessary photo interpretation
equipment and will work with a
set of aerial photos of adjacent
forest land which will be checked
on the ground.
'To Escape Pollen
Hay fever sufferers were ad-
vised yesterday by Dr. John M.
Sheldon, head of the University
Hospital Allergy Clinic, to travel
away from the source of irritation
for best relief.
Dr. Sheldon said the 200 drugs
in present use are only partial
aids to hay fever victims and that
many people experience unpleas-
ant reactions from injections. He
advised Michigan sufferers who
can travel to spend the hay fever
season above the Muskegon-Bay
