Parade, Water Show Will Feature SUI Homecoming Hawkeyes WiH Meet Hoosiers Open House to Be Held to Replace Reception Iowa City — Homecoming atmosphere has taken a grip on the State University of Iowa campus as students, faculty and townspeople prepare for the annual celebration this weekend. Homecoming this year will feature 2 additions to a jam-packed 3 days of festivities. 51 Floats Entered A homecoming parade, the first in homecoming's 37-year history, will feature the Friday program. Fifty-one floats representing 29 campus and Iowa City organizations have been entered. The floats will compete for prizes in each of 3 divisions—beauty, originality and humor. The parade will start at 7 p. m. In order to allow persons who are attending the Indiana-Iowa game Saturday to see the floats, they will be arranged on the east side of the stadium from 10 a. m. until 6 p. in. Another feature for returning homecomers will be the homecoming open house. It will be held at the Iowa Memorial union Friday immediately following the pep rally, which follows the homecoming parade. The open house replaces the reception which- has been held in previous years. Informality will be the theme of the open house. There will be no speeches, reception lines or organized entertainment. It is designed to give returning alumni and friends of the university a chance to get together and visit in an informal atmosphere. Classes Get Together To facilitate these classmate get- togethers, the alumni office will maintain a registration desk in the union lounge. As soon as an alumni registers, his name and class will be posted on a large bulletin board. The pep rally which precedes the open house will have as its honored guests 7 surviving members of the 1899 football team. These men have come from as far as Oregon in order to participate in the homecoming celebration. . The Dolphins will again present their water show this year. There will be 4 performances, one Thursday and Friday nights and 2 Saturday evening. The theme of the show will be "Hawaii Calls." Artie Shaw and his famous orchestra will furnish music for the homecoming dance which will be held in the Iowa union Saturday night.

Dolliver Flays State Medicine Iowa Solon Reports on British Socialism Washington, D. C.—"If I needed my arguments to convince me hat socialized medicine would not vork in the United States, I cer- ainly found them in Europe." Congressman James I. Dolliver, 6th Iowa district, made this statement upon his return from a 16-day trip with the committee on interstate and foreign commerce, studying medical practices n European countries. Besides England, the committee visited Sweden, Switzerland, Germany, •Trance, Italy and Ireland. "I am more vigorously opposed to socialized medicine than before this lourney," the lowan declared. More time was spent by the committee in Great Britain than any other country. The British scheme" has completely nationalized health services in that country. All the hospitals have been taken over without compensation by the government, and every doctor and dentist had become a paid employee of the BritisI government. How Many, Not How Well "It is a part of the complete socialization of Great Britain," Dolliver continued. "A doctor's compensation does not depend upon bis services to his patients but rather upon the number of prospective patients on his 'list.' Thus i seems inevitable that a deterioration of British medical standards will ensue." Since the healing arts have become a political football in England there seems to be little like lihoocl that the British people o the British medical profession can get away from the system. Botl the conservative and the labo parties are committed to a con tinuance of the British healtl plan. The medical profession it self has recognized that it is po Oct. 1949 MMM City. b.

STUDIES ELECTRONICS—Using a rectifier in the electronics laboratory of the new arts and industries building at Iowa State Teachers college, Cedar Falls, is Robert Wilder, senior from Manly. Electronics is one of the new phases of the enlarged industrial arts program at the college. litically impossible to do away with the scheme. A Warning' for America "Thus it becomes more important to the American people to steer clear of the supposed enticements of political medicine. Every proposal ought to be scrutinized with the utmost care to avoid the mistakes that have been made elsewhere. "The medical profession in the United States has far higher standards and greater skill than the profession in any country of Europe visited. The American people should be aroused against the insidious infiltration of socialistic scheme, to prevent any further encroachment of such plans." Dolliver expects to be home in Iowa following the adjournment of congress. He has already scheduled several speeches where he will discuss this public issue. SMITH BROTHERS NEW WILD CHERRY BIG HIT!
