Communist Problem Hits

Square Dancing R-age of Campus

Wind Whizzes Marchand
To Derby Championship


.S, the campus newspaper, The
exan, was recently faced with
he issue of to print or not to
A student was apprehended fog
:stributng pro-Russian leaflets
i a 'Iexas dormitory just after
he war in Korea started. He was
alled in by the university admin-
tration and denied the accusa-
on and when asked refused to say
hether he was a Communist. The
'scipline Committee at Texas

an had learned that if the inci-
dent were forced into the open,
the administration might be ob-
liged, because of "outside pres-
sure" to take strong action against
the student.
The Texan editors realized
their journalistic responsibility
and yet did not want to prede-
termine the case. Finally it was
decided that the university
should face the issue squarely,
in spite of any pressure, and
the story was published.
There is also mixed emotions
at Texas from the notoriety the
school gained when it received
special mention in Time Maga-
zine as one of the centers of dis-

semination of the
peace petition."

C A M P U S E S throughout the
country are wondering about their
status in respect to the new call
to arms. Administrators are un-
decided as to the advisability of
proceeding with expansion pro-
grams in view of the fact that the
number of men on campuses may
be greatly reduced during the
next few years.
Men are puzzled as to just how
the draft will affect continuation
of their education. Especially be-
wildered are those around twenty-
five years old who are subject to
call immediately.
2Ihe understanding is that stu-
dents will be deferred until the
end of the academic year, which
is commonly thought of as June.
The question is - can students
who are otherwise liable to im-
mediate call gain deferment for
registration in summer school?

Gravity and wind force were all
with Dick Marchand yesterday as
he whizzed to the city champion-
ship, in the Ann Arbor soap box
derby at Broadway hill.
One of Dick's friends, who had
predicted the victory, attributed
it to the little auto's sleek, tear
drop shape. Seven months of saw-
ing, planing and polishing were
spent in perfecting the car's round
bottom and sharp nose, that won
for its owner a plaque and the
chance to compete in the finals
at Akron.

GERALD LONG, the runner up,
has been making things since he
was seven, according to his mo-
ther. If they bought him a. bicycle,
he'd take off the wheels and put'
them on a wagon. If he had a
wagon, its wheels would go on a'
Except for a few screws, the
wheels and some paint, his car
was made completely of salvaged
scrap. The rubber on the axels
came from his bicycle inner tube,
and the natty red upholstery
had been found in his mother's
work basket.
Since he was from Detroit, Ge-
rald didn't know any of the boys,
on the hill. But, nevertheless he
found many friends to help him
polish his little black racer.
* * *
SOME OF the speedsters did
not fare very well. One went down
the hill backwards, and another
zoomed straight i n t o Mayor

Brown's car. In fact, very few of
the soap box specials escaped
without some injury.
After winning his heat, Dick
Marchand crashed. In spite of
the number of helpers in the
repairing, the length of the op-
eration almost led to the race
being called and the champion-
ship conceded to Gerald, who
had the only car fit to compete
in the finals.
But once again friendship and
fairplay reared its curly head and
the boys finally prevailed upon
the officials to let the derby be
run to its finish.
THE BOYS attributed the num-
ber of crackups to the unfamiliar-
ity of the course, which was in
addition much longer than the
required two hundred yards. For
the final heats, the starting point
was moved up and there were no
further mishaps.
One enterpriser, too young to
participate in the race, was right
in anticipating enough of a crowd
to drink fifty gallons of grape
juice. He sold it with the guaran-
tee that it was ice cold or your
money back.
A wide-eyed little girl, who ask-
ed for Irv Wisniewski's autograph,
was apparently more impressed
with the officials than the con-
testants. At first the football play-
er seemed surprised, since the pa-
per she handed him was a blank

cially for those people who have
decided that the popular song fol-
lows such a well-defined pattern
that the words and music can be
infallibly predicted.

BURROWS evidently fits into
this category, and has compiled a
set of six songs designed to cover
the popuar field.. First, the cow-
boy ballad -- in two scintillating
selections Burrows hits the sage-
brush on horse-back and catalogs
the lengthy list of objects which
remind him of his beloved, things
like the time she sweetly left him
tied to the railroad track.

could conceivably become the

sodden violin are replaced by
The college song - dear to the
hearts of alumni, and learned
faithfully by freshmen, the college
song harks back to the dear, dead
days when old Sagunquette 'U'
whipped its' rivals every Saturday.

is the sea chanty - usually with

Need Brains
Not Money
Brains and intuition, instead of
money, are necessary for success-
ful basic research, according to
Sidney Goldstein, visiting pro-
fessor and lecturer in the engi-
neering college, from the Univer-
sity of Manchester, England.
"You cannot hire a scientist to
THINK, as you would hire a la-
borer to perform some task -
the scientist works on a problem
because he wants to know the
answer," Goldstein explained, in
reference to questions about the
cost of research in his special field,
aerodynamics and hydrodynamics.
* * *
"cost" of research cannot be
measured in terms of dollars and
cents, since out of thousands of
engineers and researchers whose
educations cost millions of dollars,
only a very small percentage will
have the genius or intuition to ar-
rive at new information.
"Successful basic research is dif-
ficult, but not necessarily costly,"
he said. "More costly equipment
might be of help, but it will not
provide any more answers until
ideas are clear."
Prof. Goldstein will lecture in
Rm. 311, West Engineering build-
ing, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. Gold-
stein was formerly chairman of
England's Aeronautical Research

ners, Wayne Kuhns, caller for the
Lane Hall Square Dancing group,
said that such dances as the Span-
ish Cavalier, Grape Vine Twist,
Step Right Back and Watch Her
Smile, and Nellie Gray have one
step that is common to all.
, "The shuffle. step can be
found in all square dances," he
said, "it's sort of walk step with
a drag to it."
The swing step, a pivoting on
the right foot while the left foot
pushes, and the Allemand left,
which is the meeting and shaking
of hands in a moving circle, are
also popular dance steps, .he said.

dance call which identifies it,
Kuhns said. In New England, the
calls are sung, not said, and the
tempo is slow, while in the West
they use an all-talking pattern
with a fast tempa," he explained.
"Square dancing is an evo-
lutions from folk dancing and
the old minuets and quadrilles.
When it was discovered that
people had to be told what to
do during the dance, square dan-
cing with its explanatory calls
was the result," Kuhns contin-
Because four people usually form
the group, it was labelled "sq are"
dancing, although there are many
dances in which any number of
dancers can form the group-still
in the form of a square, he assert-
FOLK DANCING differs from
square dancing in that there is no
call during the dance, just a rhy-
thmical pattern. Every country
has its own, with folk dances from
Germany, Poland, Sweden, and
Italy particularly popular right
"An interesting southern cus-
tom gives the caller the right to
switch steps whenever he wants
to. It's a test of the dancers' agil-
ity to be able to follow a mixed
call," Kuhns added.
