Is Recorded
in Bolivia
"Active uneasiness" marks the
character of students in Bolivia's
universities, the International Stu-
dent Conference's South American
delegation reported.
In its swing through eight coun-
tries, the five-man group noted
that the tenuous mining economy
in ,Bolivia is the root of disturb-
Bolivian universities enjoy poli-
tical autonomy but are dependent
on tax levies. Acute inflation has
made government subsidy neces-
sary, and students fear that politi-
cal sanctions may be renewed at
any time.
'University Revolution'
This threat sprung a "university
revolution" led by students in 1955
the delegation said. The govern-
ment intervened with armed
forces, dismissing university rec-
tors and installing temporary gov-
ernmentrofficials. Autonomy was
finally restored after .a student-
faculty strike of six months.
The revolution and successful
strike won a system of equal
representation by students and
faculty on administrative councils,
abolition of matriculation exams
and renovation of teaching meth-
The Bolivian government, re-
ports the delegation, curtails free-
dom of the press and free working
of opposition parties, and further
imposes restrictions on student, ac-
tivity. Some students have been
jailed for participating in anti-
government riots and many are
forced to study in exile for politi-
cal reasons.
Split Healed
The National Revolutionary
Movement (MNR) is the party in
control now. The delegation found
that many students support the
party, but) opposition produced a
complete split in the National
Union' of Students two years ago.
Unity has been reestablished, but
left-wing and Falangist factions
remain influential.
The left-wing students tend to
support the nationalist-minded
NNR, particularly in its mistrust
of North American activities in
Bolivia. They contend that United
States economic help is subjecting
their country to a "colonial re-
gime," the delegation indicated.

DETROIT( (P)-Threat of a milk
strike in 'the Detroit area was
lifted late yesterday, when the
major dairies yielded tb demands
of the Michigan Milk Producers
Assn. for an increase in the whole-
sale price of drinking milk.
Three dairies agreed to an in-
crease of 35 cents per hundred-
weight (46%/ quarts). The increase
will bring the hundredweight price
to $5.
The milk producers had threat-
ened to withhold milk at midnight
tonight from dealers refusing to
increase the wholesale price.
The producers association said
virtually all creameries in south-
eastern Michigan have agreed to
the increase, making a milk strike
Jack W. Barnes, MMPA assist-
ant general manager had said his
grcup would divert as much milk
as it can from creameries who do
rot 'agree to the increase.
Meanwhile, officers of the Dairy
Farmers Co-operative Association
of Michigan (DFC), a splinter
group of the MMPA, said that ac-
ceptance of the $5 price by deal-
ers will only delay a strike.

economic needs than the old and

tona before the'International Con-
gress of Psychology here.
Prof. Katona, of the Survey Re-
search Center, said recently that,
those confident about their own
-financial prospects and of thel
future are much more likely to ex-
press their psychological needs in
actual buying.
"The overwhelming majority of
n'ew carfs! are bought by people
who say they have had a car in
good condition," he pointed out.
"Why do people replace cars and


other durable goods which are per-
forming well?
"Marketing experts have coined
the word 'upgrading' to describe
this phenomenon. It means that
new features or improvements in
new models attract buyers. It also
means that even after achieving
some of our goals, we do want still
In relating this tendency to
economic cycles, Prof. Katona con-
tinued: "Of course, there is some
saturation. Immediately after I
have bought a new car, I shall not

'No Such Thing As Best Route'
For Travelers, Davis Claims

There is no such things as a
"best" route to take when travel-
ing in Michigan or anywhere says
Prof. Charles M. Davis, chairman
of the Geography Department,
"Best," he said, might mean the
.shortest route, the fastest route,
or the route with the most four-
lane highways. Depending upon
which criteria is chosen, one of
many travel routes might be
"We get questions all the time
asking the best way to get some-
where," says Prof. Davis.
"What must be considered, for
instance, when heading north, is
the flow of traffic, time of day and
week, and whether or hot the
route hits the east-west belt of
cities that block then central part
of the Lower Peninsula."
Grand. rapids, ,Flint, Saginaw,
Bay City, Muskegon, and Midland
comprise this belt of cities which,
cause congestionrfor traffic moving
north and south in Michigan.
One way to find the "best" route
around these cities, Prof. Davis
says, is to "get a good detailed
map, and then look, for a good by-
pass around the congested metro-<

politan districts of the bottleneck
He adds, "A road map by itself
is dead. It doesn't tell you the
amount of traffic you might run
into when approaching a city and
it doesn't inform you when the
flow will be heavy or light.
"Such things as traffic lights,
pedestrians, and other hazards to
the driver who is trying to make
time are not shown either.
"A best route on Monday may
be a poor route on Sunday after-
