VOL. LI. No. 23
Senate Passes
For Additional
Aid To Britain
New Lend Lease Clause
Resiricts Food Buying
To American Products
Measure Approved
Over 'War' Protests
WASHINGTON, Oct. 23.-(M)-The
Senate stamped its approval, 59 to 13,
on a $5,985,000,000 Lend-Lease ap-
propriation today, after writing into,
the measure a provision restricting:
food purchases under the program to
United States-grown products.
With a little more than four hours
of debate, the chamber passed and
sent back to the House a revised mea-
sure containing total appropriations
of $6,160,039,000, including $175,039.-
000 in Miscellaneous funds for gov-
ernment departments.
Overriding a pretest that it was
"putting the seal of approval on an
undeclared war," the chamber ap-
proved the'major appropriation with-
out-change in the form adopted pre-
viously by the House.'
The vote on final passage com-
pared with" the 67 to 9 majority, for
the original $7,000,000,000 rLend-
Lease appropriation last March 27.
Three Democrats Vote No
Three Democrats, 'Clark of Idaho,
Clark of Missouri and Walsh o
Massachusetts, joined with nine Re-
publicans and Senator La Follette
(Proj.-Wis.) in voting against the
measure. Fifteen Republicans, 43
Democrats and Senator Norris (Ind.-
Neb.) voted for it.
Senator Danaher (Rep. - Conn.)
brought the\"war" issue into the de-
bate with an assertion just before
the vote was cast that approval of
the bill would constitute "ratification
of a course of conduct never sub-
mitted .to Congress.
He said this included' the trfade of
destroyers for naval and air bases
on brltish possessiono and the joint
occupation of Ice antI by Anerican
and British forces.
Debate On Farm Products
Much of the debate revolved about
the $1,000,000,000 allocation for the
Agriculture Department to purchase
pork, dairy and poultry products,
most -of which presumably will be
shipped to Great Britain.
Senator McNary of Oregon, the
Republican leader, called this appro-
priation too large, asserting Congress
was supplying $500000,000 a year to
durtail production of 'certain crops
and now was asked to make a $1,000,-
000,000 available to increase yields.
Senator Vandenberg (Rep.-Mich.)
contended Great Britain was receiv-,
ing these food supplies on credit from
the United States, selling them to
food dealers in England for cash and
apparently retaining the cash.
That, Vandenberg asserteid, was
merely a process' of "syphoning"
money from the United states treas-
ury into Great Britain's.

To End .Steel
Strike Today.
DETROIT, Oct. 23. --()- Mem-
bers of the Steel Workers Organiz-
ing Committee (CIO) voted at a
mass meeting tonight to end a strike
at Great Lakes Steel Corporation
and return to work immediately.
Two thousand workers voted to ac-
cept a six-point program providing
return to work as soon as the com-
pany can call them. Company offi-
cials said they would be ready to
resume operations on the midnight
shift, but that it probably would be
48 hours before full production could
be resumed.
Workers began entering the plant
to report for the midnight shift, un-
molested by a few pickets who still
milled about the company gates.
Pickets, heeding the advice of union
officials, removed a barricade of auto-
mobiles in the street.
Walter P Reuther, director of the
UAW-CIO's General Motors depart-
ment, who announced the vote, told
the strikers that continuation of the
dispute would result in closing of

Minnesota, holder of the jug for seven successive years, has never been

Labor M.P.'s Demand Military'
Aid To Russia In Heated Debate

Paying tribute to the world's most
modern method of widespread public
education, the University Broadcast-
ing Department yesterday inaugu-
rated its sixteenth consecutive year
3f educational broadcasting with a-1
special program over station WJR.
Dr. Frank Robbins, assistant to the
president, read an address for Presi-
dent Alexander G. Ruthven in which
he emphasized that it is by means of
radio that "the voice of the Univer-
sity comes directly to the people of.
the state whose fathers created it
and to whom it properly belongs."
Ruthven Extends Thanks
The President, through Dr. Rob-
bins, also extended his thanks to
station WJR for their cooperation
during the past 14 years in what he
termed a "mutual enterprise for the
time-honored purpose of 'encourag-
ing the means of education.'"
A plaque was presented to the sta-
tion for its services to the youth of
the state in broadcasting 'Youth in
the News', a program written and
acted entirely by University students.
The presentation was made by Orin
Kaye, State Administrator of the Na-
tional Youth Administration, to Leo
Fitzpatrick, vice-president of WJR.

On East Coast

(By The Associated Press)
LONDON, Oct. 23.-Parliamentary
spokesmen for British labor voiced
today in fervent and caustic debate
their demands for military action to
aid Russia-somewhere or anywhere
-and demanded that Prime Minister
Winston Churchill get rid of certain
ministers lest they "drag him down
with them."
In many respects it was the most
revealing discussion since the start
of the war, although the Prime Min-
ister himself did not, apparently,
consider the labor assault of major
importance. He was not present in
the House of Commons today, and it
was indicated he would take his time
about answering the criticism.
(British Parlianentary sessions
are surrounded by considerable sec-
recy for reasons of security, but it
appeared probable Churchill would
not speak until next week.)
Eden, Beaverbrook Answer
Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden in
Commons and Lord Beaverbrook, tlie
supply minister, in the House of Lords
gave the government's answer today
to the sudden outpouring of rebuke
from the labor benches. Eden said,
in effect, that if the members knew
what the government was planning
they would not be so querulous; Bea-
verbrook bluntly compared Russia's
present situation with thatof Britain
after Dunkerque and declared Brit-
ain and the United States had prom-
ised Joseph Stalin to make up Russia's
losses in tanks and planes with fin-
ished products from their own as-
sembly lines.
To a considerable extent Beaver-
brook stole the show with an inti-
mate word picture of Stalin at work

Criticism From Bevan
The barrage of labor criticism came
principally from Aneurin Bevan, for
more than a decade a member of
Parliament from the west England
coal mining country on the Welsh
border; from Philip J. Noelbaker, an
old-liige pacifist; from Col. Josiah
Wedgrood, veteran of the Transvaal,
Flanders (1914) and Gallipoli; from
William Gallacher the lone Com-
munist in the House of Commons,aand
from retired naval commander,
Stephen King-Hall.
Bevan said "Lord Halifax (British
Ambassador to Washington) inform-
ed Hitler in the plainest possible
language, when he was assembling his
troops to attack Russia, that he need
fear no attack from us . . is a state-
ment of that kind, when Hitler is
gathering his forces, removed from
high treason?"

In spite of an increase of 30 per
cent over number of copies printed
a year ago, Gargoyle' registered a
complete sellout on its first day of
distribution of the year's first issue,
according to Circulation Manager
John Zimmerman, '43,
Although all the 2,500 copies avail-

called for on the second floor of the

The success of the October Gar-
goyle has been attributed by Business
Manager Ralph Mitchell, '42, to the
use of offset printing on glazed
paper, inaugurated this year. "This'
new process," he said, "although it
involves larger cost, opens up greater
possibilities for coming issues, in-
part because photographs and car-

Oil Ships To Remedy
Petroleum Emergency
WASHINGTON, Oct. 23.-(AP)-All
gasoline restrictions in the populous
East, including the rationing pro-
gram and the, filling station curfew,
were lifted tonight after Secretary of
the Interior Ickes announced the
British were turning back 49 oil tank-
ers borrowed from America.
"The bad outlook of the summer
has been overcome," the coordinator
said as he declared an end to the
petroleum emergency.
The British were able to release
the tankers, he reported, because of
the greatly-diminshed sinkings in the
battle of the Atlantic.
Ickes withdrew the curfew as of
tonight and recommended to Priori-
ties Director Donald M. Nelson that
his' rationing order be lifted forth-,
with. Nelson subsequently said he
would revoke the rationing program
"as soon as an order can be drawn."
The East Coast oil emergency was
created, officials said, by diversion
to the British of a large portion of
the American oil tanker fleet. Be-
tween 80 and 100 vessels were report-
ed to have been transferred.
Ickes said the 40 ships being re-
turned-15 by Nov. 1 and 25 more by

service hauling oil from Gulf ports to
the Atlantic seaboard.-r
Before calling for an end to the
restrictions on gasoline, Ickes said
the program of his office a'nd the
continued warm - weather virtually
had cured the deficiency of petroleum
stocks, and that supplies of gasoline
on the Atlantic seaboard now actua-
ly exceded those of last year.

First Of Comedy Series
Will Be Shown Sunday
By Art Cinema League
If you Want "to get away from it
all," at least on Sunday nights, the
Art Cinema League offers you the
opportunity to laugh-and hard-at
several of the best American film
comedies ever produced.
Opening the four-program series
at 8:15 p.m. Sunday in the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre with the Marx
Brothers in "Duck Soup," and W. C.
Fields in "The Barber Shop," the
League will present other hit come-
dies-starring such personalitiesnas

Single tickets for the perform-
ances will not be soe. Season tickets
are on sale at the League, the Union-
and State Street bookstores.
Sunday's offerings should be espe-
cially appealing if you believe as do
many movie critics that the one place
where intellectuals and low-brows
seem able to meet in full accord is
at comedies.
Though farces have many' pat-
terns, you will find one of the widest
ranges Sunday, from W. C. Fields'
half-heard mutterings as he shaves
his customer in "The Barber Shop"
to the unceasing flow of patter from
Groucho Marx as he darts nervous-

Although Student Directory sales
have consistently been good in past
years, the demand for these booklets
this year has surpassed all expecta-
When almost the entire stock of
3,000 copies was sold on the first day

and when the final Directory disap-
peared at 11:20 a.m. yesterday, they
immediately set to work to find a
way to satisfy the flood of requests
still coming in.
Luckily, however, 300 extra copies
had been prepared by the foresighted
printers, which copies have been
bound and will be available on cam-
pus today only. After these copies
are gone, it will be impossible to get
any more.

In Kalinin Streets
MOSCOW, Friday, Oct. 24.-(A')-
The Red Army announced today it
had repulsed repeated German at-
tacks in the Mozhaisk and Maloyaro-
slavets sectors before Moscow where
fighting has raged for five days.
ether dispatches relayed by offi-
cial wireless declared Soviet troops
holing the northwestern approaches
to the capital were struggling in the
streets of Kalinin, fighting block by
block and yard by yard.
The early morning communique
reported fighting continued along the
entire front and said the Germans
"undertook a number of fierce at-
tacks on our lines" about Mozhaisk,
57 miles west of Moscow, and Maloy-
aroslavets, 65 miles southwest.
"These attacks were beaten off
with heavy losses to the eneiy," the
;ommunique said.
The communique spoke of heavy
tank battles in the northwestern
direction of the front (possibly at
Leningrad) where, it .said, one unit
destroyed 15 derman tanks, several
mine-thrower batteries and 10 artil-
lery pieces, and killdd more than 600
officers and men within a few hours.
Russian planes were credited with
destruction of 37 German airplanes

tal, was pictured in these advices,
