Brown To Ask
Mid -West Ban
On Gas Ration
Senator's Study Reveals
Voluntary Curtailment
Is Almost As Effective
GRAND RAPIDS, Oct. 22.-(P)-
U.S. Senator Prentiss M. Brown
(Dem.-Mich.), declaring -that gaso-
line consumptionin a Middle West
area already had been reduced to
within three per cent of that in
Eastern states, said today he would
ask Price Administrator Leon Hen-
derson to exempt the Middle West
from gasoline rationing.
Nation-wide rationing has been
scheduled for Nov. 22.
Brown did not specify, except
Michigan, the states he thought
should be excluded from rationing
However, he referred to a study
which he said "shows that voluntary
curtailment of the use of automo-
biles in District 2 had accomplished
the same results as gasoline ration-
ing." District 2 of the Petroleum Co-
ordinator's Office includes Michigan,
Indiana, Illinois, North Dakota,
South Dakota, Wisconsin, Minnesota,
Tennessee, Kentucky, Oklahoma,
Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska
and Ohio.
In a prepared statement Brown,
who is a candidate for reelection in
November's election, said that "I have
made a study to determine if the vol-
untary curtailment in driving, to-
gether with the 35-mile speed limit,
would meet the requirements of the
Baruch Committee," on whose rec-
ommendations the rationing plan is
"My investigation," Brown stated,
"includes the results of a study made
from reliable and authoritative
sources, entered into to determine the
facts of a national gasoline rationing
in the Midwest, which includes Mich-
He said a number of spot checks
at Midwestern and other points ex-
cluding the East Coast, revealed that
"gasoline consumption has already
been reduced to levels comparable
with current consumption under ra-
tioning on the East Coast, which ap-
parently satisfied the requirements
of the Baruch Committee."

Rushton Asks
For Retraction
LANSING, Oct. 22.-OP)--Attorney
General Herbert J. Rushton demand-
ed in an open letter today a retrac-
tion of charges expressed in a cam-
paign speech by Governor Van Wag-
oner that Rushton had proposed "vi-
ciously anti-labor" legislation to the
"If that statement was made by
you," Rushton's letter said, "I de-
mand immediate public retraction'
of the same as no one knows better
than you that the quoted statement
concerning me is utterly and com-
pletely false."
The text of the Governor's speech
at a political rally at Muskegon on
Wednesday night carried the state-
ment: "my public threat of vetoes
killed some viciously anti-labor meas-
ures sought last year by the Repub-
lican attorney general and reaction-
ary legislators."

Salvage Drive
Halts Business
In Rural Area'
HOWELL, Oct. 22.- ()- This
small Livingston county community
and six surrounding townships went
all-out for th' war today.
All stores and schools were closed
while business men and the older
school boys manned 50 trucks trans-
porting scrap iron from farms in the
vicinity which had been canvassed
during the preceding week by repre-
sentatives of civic and business
At nightfall, the scrap hoard filled
a street alongside the county house to
a height of 10 feet for more than a
block and was still growing. Officials
said more than 500 tons of metal ap-
peared to be in the pile and that
crews of men would be sent out for
the remainder of the week to gather
scrap collected at rural points. The
children of one country schdol
brought in six tons of metal, it was

New Rule Hits
Labor .Piracy
WASHINGTON, Oct. 22.-(IP)-The
War Labor Board set un another bar
to labor "piracy" today in a general
order prohibiting an empoyer from
hiring workers at rates higher than
those previously established in his
plant for workers of similar skill and
productive ability.
The board ruled that to hire a
worker at such a higher rate would
amount to a wage increase within the
meaning of the President's Executive
order and would, therefore, require
approval of the board.
The order does not necessarily pre-
vent an employee who has been paid,
for instance, $1 an hour from taking
a similar Job in another plant for
$1.10 an hour, provided that $1.10
rate had already been established.

Sena te Sidetracks Dry
Amendment To Draft

Corner Junk Pile
Just Bides Its Time
The enthusiastic spirit of Amer-
ican youth has practically given
our grinning enemy another 'kick
in the pants.
On the corner of Church St. and
South University is a huge pile of
scrap, everything from coffee pots
to mattress springs. And it's been
put there by University High
School students who have been
scouring Ann Arbor for two weeks.
Under the direction of a war
board made up of students and
high school faculty members, an
all-out school assembly was held
and 75 per cent of the students re-
sponded by volunteering to canvass
the town.
Ransacking their own homes
first and eventually getting to the
next-door neighbor's house, they've
put the pile where it is and are still
out looking.

We have a special sheer rayon
made not to wrinkle. Has mer-
cerized top, reinforced heel and
toe. Special at $1.00.
We have a nice selection of
pajamas in cotton from $1.49
to $2.95.

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Oct. 22.- A dry
amendment to the youth-draft bill
was sidetracked by the Senate, 49 to
25, today after a hot debate in which
supporters called it a necessary safe-
guard for soldiers and sailors and op-
ponents denounced it as "the enter-
ing wedge of the long blue nose of
Offered by Senator Lee (D-Okla.),
the amendment would ban sales, gifts
or use of all alcoholic drink from
Army and Navy reservations and ad-
jacent areas.
At the earnest suggestion of Sena-
tor Barkley (D-Ky.), majority leader,
the Senate decided to send the
amendment to its military committee
with instruction to hold hearings and
a report a soon as practicable.
This meant, it was apparent, a de-
lay in Senate consideration until af-
ter the Nov. 3 elections and Senator
Norris (Ind-Neb.) told his colleagues
it spelled the death of the Lee pro-
posal, which he supported.
The Senate, decision opened the
way for an early vote' on the draft
bill, making youths 18 and 19 years
old available for military service.
However, this vote was put off at
All unsold books at the Student
Book Exchange must be picked up
from 3-5 p. m. today in Room 302
of the Michigan Union. This is the
last day to get books, before the
Exchange closes until next semes-

least until tomorrow when the Senate
recessed late in the day.
Extra policemen guarded the Sen-
ate wing of the capitol as the dry
issue was threshed out. Police author-
ities described the guards as "purely
a precautionary measure" because of
the overflow crowds in galleries and
Barkley told his colleagues that
Congress ought to have additional
time to study the question. Adoption
of Lee's' amendment now, he said,
would be bound to delay final action
on the draft legislation until some
time in November. He said Speaker
Rayburn of the House had informed
him it would be impossible to raise a
House quorum until next month be-
cause so many members had gone
