yearbook. This feature is under the
direction of Howard Ramey, spe
cial features editor, and Mart Pond,
assistant features editor.
Yates explained that a 16-page
decrease on the over-all size of the
book has been necessitated by an
approximate 10 per cent price
raise. The 1948 edition will contain
424 pages.
An earlier decision was made to
give each living organization one
instead of two pages as in former
books. “Consequently, no aspect of
campus life will suffer a cut be
cause of the page decrease,” Yates

French Republic
In Fast Tailspin
Wright Asserts
“France is in the midst of the
first tail spin since liberation,” de
clared I)r. Gordon Wright, first
speaker of the 1947-48 University
lecture scries, when he spoke to a
capacity crowd in Chapman hall
last night on the “Anatomy of the
Fourth French Republic.”
When the Vichy government
crumbled and the French govern
ment was reorganized after the
close of the war, hopes in France
for a new republic were high, he
said. Everyone was tired of the
negative compromise of the Third
republic and 94 per cent of the peo
ple voted against revision of this
Wanted Clean Slate
The people wanted to start with
a clean slate and hoped for a finer,
more solid government with soli
darity shown in the political par
ties, according to Dr. Wright.
By 1947, this enthusiasm had
been replaced by doubt for many
reasons, he said. It might have been
the rise of the communists; it
might have been DeGaulle; it might
have been the failure of the demo
cratic leaders to make the govern
ment effective; and it may have
been the sheer cussedness of the
people, he speculated.
The basic fact, added the speak
er, was that the republic was fac
tuous and built underground. In
reality it had to be built on deep
divisions. There was a choice of ig
noring the divisions, of one-half
building the republic and forcing
the rest to follow, or a compromise
solution in the middle, he reiterat
ed. The compromise was the only

Truman Calls for Special Session
de n t Truman Thursday called
congress into special session No
vember 17 to combat “alarming
and continuing” high prices ana
the crisis in western Europe.
The president said the increased
cost of living “is causing hardship
to millions of American families
and endangering the prosperity
and welfare of the entire nation.” |
It is also necessary for this
government to take adequate steps
' to meet the crisis in western Eur
ope,” he added in a new and j
broadened appeal for emergency
foreign relief.
The president then announced
that he would tell the nation in a
broadcast at 10 p.m. EST today
about these “two compelling
reasons” for convening a special
session- the 26th in the country’s]
history. His decision to put con
gress back to work seven weeks
ahead of its regular session sched
ule was handed to republican and
democratic leaders of the senate
and house at an hour-long emer
gency conference yesterday after
noon. Previously, he had talked it
over with his cabinet for two and
a half hours.
He said the foreign aid—parti
cularly for France and Italy—
coula not wait until January.
“It now apears,” Truman told
his news conference, “that the
minimum needs of France can be
met with present funds only until
about the end of December, and
that it will enter the new year
without funds to pay for essential
“Italy’s needs are even more im
mediate, for Italy will require sub
stantial assistance before the end
of this year.
