University of Chicago, has joined the lcc.uring staff of the School cf Religion. He has been a radio preacher of Los Angeles’ First Congregational church since 1946. Dr. Palmer was also moderator of the General floor, then withdrew his proposed amendments and asked that debate on the measure be set as a special order of business for 2:15 p.m. Thursday. His amendments would have eliminated a section of the bill outlawing any agreement between woncers to strike in violation of anti-hot cargo and secondary boycott provisions of the bill. This section, while upheld by an opinion of the legislative counsel, was held to be in violation of the anti-slavery amendment to the federal constitution. L. M. Friedman, deputy attorney general. said in his opinion on the section, “the right of persons, whether individually or in a concert. to cease work is a constitutional right guaranteed by both the 13th and 14th amendments.” QUESTIONS BILL Friedman also held that provisions of the bill banning “peaceful secondary picketing" were questionable. Hatfield declared the amendment were “simple” and “don’t affect the balance of the bill.” He said he could see “no necessity for this bill to go before committee again for another three-hour hearing.” O'Gara termed the bill ‘the most important piece of labor legislation to be considered this session.” BENNY GOODMAN .

Mass Meeting Sponsored Today for Student Voice Los Angeles, Calif.r Tuesday, Mar. 29, 1949 No. 108 The SC Council of Religion yesterday officially gave its*- support to the Padgett “race and descent resolution” now . __ pending action in the ASSC Senate. || All AI |a|l/ Seeking to sound out and solidify rank-and-file student | 1/V.UCl IU I QilY opinion on the proposal calling for the deletion of race and j descent data from admission blanks, I School of Law Board Defeats Race Measure The controversial School of Law “race resolution’’ was defeated 5-3 at a Board oi Law Governors meeting yesterday. The resolution, submitted last week by Joseph Capalbo, vice-president of the freshman law class, proposed to withdraw board recognition from any honorary or professional legal fraternity having racial or religious membership restrictions. PROPOSAL ‘COERCIVE’ The major argument against the proposal was that it was “coercive.” Opponents held that eventually the fraternities would eliminate the restrictions themselves. Capalbo opened the discussion of his resolution, which had been introduced at a previous meeting and tabled until yesterday, by rebutting possible arguments against the measure. He anticipated the “coercive” argument and admitted its presence but defended himself by claiming that it was there for a good cause. “It's necessary to destroy barriers to understanding and brotherhood. A resolution without coercion is illusory,” he said. COMPARED TO GHETTO He compared the system to forming fraternities into tight racial groups at the exclusion of others to the ghetto system. “Buck passing” was the way he described the argument that fraternities could take no action on a local level but would have to wait for national action. Other officers supporting the resolution were John W. Coilings, freshman class president and Chuck Harris, senior class president. Opposed were Gertrude Green-gard, secretary; John R. Stanton, vice-president of the board; Charles L. Kopp, publicity director; Horace B. Comstock, junior class vice-president; and Richard T. Morrow, junior class president. Pygmalion Run Ends Tonight George Bernard Shaw ends a five-day visit via the Bovard stage tonight when his comedy of language, “Pygmalion,” peeks out from behind the final curtain at 8:30. Tickets for the play, directed by Prof. William C. deMille and starring Adele Cook and Ray Scott, can be bought at the University ticket office, 209 Student Union, or the Bovard box office. Holderi of activity books Will be admitted free. Greater . . . university committee meets tomorrow, 2:15, in President Fagg’s conference room, Administration. Evanns Scores Russ Marxism Emphasizing that a people without a spiritual creed will find it difficult to exist, Abner J. Evanns. associate professor in commerce, gave a verbal preview yesterday of his speech, “Russian Relations With the Church,” to be given today at 3:15 in 104 Bridge hall. Professor Evanns said that the modem religion in the Soviet Union is Marxism. This creed is based on material rewards, and s creed based materialism, unless used as a means to an end, r*.ay in time lose its potency, he said. Travel in the Near East and Russia has acquainted Professor Evanns with conditions behind the iron curtain. As an employee of the International Harvester company in Russia, he was in an excellent position to observe conditions and changes 'there. Today’s lecture is being sponsored by the International Relations club. the council will sponsor a mass meeting today at 3 p.m. in 6 Mudd hall. Petitions urging the deletion of the race data are also being circulated by religious organizations that form the council. The two measures were originated by Vernon Blake, council member and lobbyist for the Padgett proposal. and submitted to the religious groups for approval. SEEK STUDENTS “We hope to find as many people who are interested in this moral issue as were interested in the recent parking petition,” Blake said. At the meeting this afternoon the background and implications of the proposal will be discussed and student opinion will be solicited. The council feels the many students who are in favor of the resolution aren't situated in officially articulate positions. The meeting has been planned to call the attention of the Senate to the students’ opinions. WILL TEST SENATE “With several thousand signatures on the petitions, we shall at last be able to really test whether the Senate members represent us, or represent only themselves or their select cliques,” Blake said. The petitions and the findings at the meeting will be presented at the Senate meeting Apr. 13 when the Padgett resolution comes up for discussion. It was tabled at the last meeting Qg j|y "J"|'0|3n when a committee of three, Bob ' * Padgett, Chet Carter, and John ... staff meeting today, 1:30, 418 Davis, was appointed to contact the Student Union. All reporters and administration on the issue. ‘ copyreaders are required to attend. On Legislation For Nutrition Only in special cases should nutrition laws be passed, claims Dr. Harry J. Deuel Jr., head of the department of biochemistry and nutrition. Dr. Deuel will speak on the topic, “Can We Legislate Nutrition?’’ at 3:15 tomorrow in the art and lecture room of the University library in the fourth program of the LAS Wednesday lecture series. “Some legislation has resulted in many foods being fortified nutritionally,” he said yesterday, “while ether laws have limited the consumption of highly nutritive foods.” Dr. Deuel said that he will give examples of these laws in his lecture. “Past laws have brought about the addition of vitamin A to margarine,” he said, “but other restrictions have forced housewives to add coloring to margarine and pay higher prices for it.” Last year Dr. Deuel discussed the comparative nutritional values of animal and vegetable fats before the House Agricultural committed in the hearings on margarine. Chest Slogans Kept Secret by Sponsors by John Eccleston Trojan Chest slogan sponsors are holding on to the weekend entries tighter than a kid with a sack of wieners in the city dog pound. Beyond a guarded, “more than 100 entries came in,” slogan chairman Parnell Curry had little idea of the type of contest entries yesterday. i “I don't have the key to open the boxes,” he said. Possible reason for the close-lipped routine is the deadline, which is rapidly nearing. Tomorrow noon is the last time entries may be dropped in the boxes in 232 Student Union or across from the SU candy counter. Object of the contest is to get a theme slogan for the Trojan Chest drive. Money collected in the drive will provide a single fund to be used for charitable needs. Entry bait for the contest is a highly-polished trophy, emblematic of considerable creative power. Doubly appealing is the fact that said trophy will be presented at Friday’s All-U dance, to which the winner will receive a bid. Barristers Band To Boost Chest Troy’s barristers-to-be began banding together yesterday to join in a concerted drive for the Trojan Chest. Bill Hogoboom, president of the Board of Bar Governors, appointed John Coilings, Richard Morrow, and Charles Harris as a committee to formulate collection procedure for the Apr. 6 classroom solicitations.
