We have nickel candy bar ma-
chines, cigarettes, cokes, peanuts,
not to mention typewriters. Whole
groups of famous lecturers, actress-
es, and professors are coming to
the University, and the Daily needs
interviewers.
Beside that, there is a skeleton
crew of competent writers up here
to guide young writers and help
them learn journalistic rules-in a
newspaper plant that is up-to-
date, and we blush to mention,,
almost un-amateurish.

University security officers hired
with funds from student car regis-
tration fees will be used only to
enforce the driving ban Vice-Presi-
dent for Student Affairs James A.
Lewis said recently.
However the Vice-President add-
ed that additional security officers
might be hired on general Univer-
sity funds to check drinking viola-
tions.
Student Government Council
4nembers had been disturbed at
the close of spring semester over
rumors that security officers hired
with student funds would be used
to check drinking infractions.
Not Worked Out
Vice-President Lewis said details
for enlarging the University's se-
curity force (which now consists of
one officer) had not yet been
worked Out.
First problem to iron out is
whether the security officers will
operate under the Board of Reg-
ents or the police.
Vice-President Lewis comment-
ed, "I'm not too anxious to see
University security officers work-
ing under the police but some are."
Will Be Deputized
Whether they operate under the
Regents or rolice, odds are the
security officers will be deputized.
The Vice-President said the Uni-
versity will investigate every pos-
sibility for deputizing the officers
but that no work had been done
yet.
Administrators felt generally that
enforcement this year was hindered
because of the limited authority of
security officer Harold Swover-
land.
Swovefland could not, for ex-
ample, stop cars to determine if
the drivers, were students. Instead
he had to take down license num-
bers of suspicious Iooking cars and
check through the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs.
Driving Ban Changed
Need for additional policing of
students was occasioned largely by
the change in driving ban regula-
tions effected this year when the

Voting Tally
Shows U.S.
Foes Lead {
Returns in Iceland
Doom Radar Base
REYKJAVIK, Iceland (P) - Re-
turns from key areas in Iceland's
parliamentary election indicated
yesterday that foes of an Ameri-
can-NATO radar base on the is-
land are running ahead.
Western sources said a NATO
special meeting might have to be
called to weigh the situation./
The 10-century-old republic was
counting the ballots in the heav-
iest voting in history, a slow pro-
cess especially in the Arctic Circle
area. The final tally of Sunday's
voting will not be known before
today.
Pro-U.S. Regime Doomed
But the way the voting sized up
yesterday, it appeared the final
count would show Prime Minister
Olafur Thors' pro-American re-
gime is doomed under the propor-
tional representation system.
With more than 80,000 men and
women voters, it appeared that
Thors' Independence party lost
ground heavily.
The Progressives, who joined
forces for the election with the
Social Democrats, gained ground
in their figlht to get the Americans
out of here in the next 18 months.
But some Icelandic sources hinted
Herman Joaasson, Progressive
leader who e2gineered the March
27 Althing - Parliament - resolu-
tion calling on foreign troops to,
leave Iceland, would not insist on;
anything more than a cut in the
size of the force and payment by
the Americans of import duties,
Red Strength Increased
The Communists, who capturedI
the trade unions and then weanedc
away Hannibal Valdimarsson, Ice-4
land's labor boss and Social Dem-
ocratic leader, increased their to-t
tal vote strength.
The National Defense party,
which is unfriendly to both thet
Americans and Russians, virtuallyX
went out of existence.k

Registration a "Whiz"
As compared to the fall and
spring semesters, registration for
the summer was described by stu-
dents as a "whiz". The summer
registrants signed up for classes in
an almost deserted gymnasium
where the only lines to be found
were by the drinking fountains.
Instructors sat behind their
tables looking bored or reading
newspapers, only putting them
aside when an occasional student
came up to sign up for their
courses.
Education Busiest
The busiest section by far was
the education table where the in-
structors were kept fairly occupi-
ed throughout the two and one
half days of registration.
Though students "whizzed"
through registration and for the
most part got the classes they
wanted, the number of "guards"
at entrances and exits were not
diminished. They maintained their
posts and demanded I.D.'s or
passes from each student passing
through the doors.
'U' Extends
Bid To NSA
The University is making a
strong bid to hold the National
Students Association Congress
here next summer according to
Vice-President for Student Affairs
James A. Lewis.
This year's congress is being
held at the University of Chicago
Aug. 20 - 30.
Vice-President Lewis said the
University is6 bidding against sev-'
eral other Big Ten schools but
termed our chances "very good."

UPresen'ts
Negro Series
For Sunmmer
By ADELAIDE WILEY

Conflicting reports were givea
yesterday following a visit to Ann
Arbor Friday by Big Ten Athletie
Commissioner Kenneth "Tug"4Wil
son.
University Athletic Director
Herbert "Fritz" Crisler termed the
visit "strictly routine." Criler said
Wilson visits all Big Ten ,chool
once or twice a year and was si:..
ply "making the rounds."
W. R. Reed, assistant to the Big
'en Commissioner, however, claim-
ed there were "special circumstan.
ces" that induced the visit.
Conducting Investigation
"While it was in part a routine
visit, Wilson 'was also conutn
an investigation," Reed et
ed.
Wilson, enroute to Los Angeles
by train, could not be reached fo
comment.
Crisler had denied that Wilson
was in any sense investigating the
University.
* Although the specific areas be-
ing Investigated were not definite-
ly known, it was believed that Wil-
son is looking into the University's
Grant-in-Aid program to see if
Conference regulations on unearn-
ed aid to athletes are being 0fol-
lowed.
Kramer Grant Questioned
A University grant to All-Ameri-
can football end Ron Kramer, '57,
estimated at $500 to $1,000 was
supposedly under question since
the football star's uncle ad aun
had given him a new car recently
Financial need is the main cr1-
teria for grants.
Dean of Men Walter B. Rea said
yesterday that Wilson had been
given access to all University ree
ords on grants and loans. "Our
operations are in strict accord with
our interpretation of Big Ten regu-
lations. We are satisfied we follow
the letter and the spirit of the
law," Dean Rea declared.
No Legal Obligation
There is no legal obligation to
pay back grants, although Dean
Rea said there was a moral obli-
gation. "There has been no gravy
train attitude" on the part of ath-
letes toward University grants,
Dean Rea commented.
Both Dean Rea and Crisler said
the grant to Kramer had no con-
nection with his car. "The two
weren't associated at all. The car
was given him recently by rela-
tives, the grant by the University
last fall."
No report has been received yet
from the Commissioner's office.
Crisler said he believed Wilson was
thoroughly satisfied with the Uni-
versity's records.
Reed said he had had no indica-
tion one way or the other from,
Wilson regarding the possibility of
further investigation.
Foundation
Gives Grant
For Research
The Ford Foundation has award-
ed the University a $313,000 grant
for mental health research.
One of 21 U.S. research centers.
to receive the foundation's grants,
the University is to use it to
strengthen and extend research
in mental health.

ment." He is an administrative of-

tinue through August 21 with
other lectures, concerts, exhibi-
tions and TV and radio broadcasts.
Director of summer session Har-
old M. Dorr commented, "This sub-
ject has nothing to do with present
controversies over desegregation or
anything-I'd been thinking about
it for a long time.
"So this year I got in touch with
Prof. Richard -C. Boys of the Eng-
lish department, who is chairman
of the special program, and he
started setting it up."
On Thursday Jesse Owens, of the.
Illinois Youth Commission, will lec-

Hoover Ball and Bearing Company's land and buildings, it was an-
nounced recently by Clifford H. Simmons, board chairman and presi-
dent of Hoover.
Transfer of the property, which will not take place until late in

University Vice-President Wilbur K. Piernoint said that the newlv

Hoover plans to begin construction of a new plant in about six
