Plan To Close Taverns
On Sunday Is Defeated
By Narrow Margin
After a nip-and-tuck battle, the
AnnArborhTown Council voted 8 to
7 last night to continue to permit
the sale of beer and -other intoi-
cating beverages in Ann Arbor on
The decision reversed the stand
taken at the first reading when the
Council voted 12 to 2 to ban Sunday
sales of intoxicating bevereges. The
Council's action followed an un-
favorable report on the proposal by
the Ordinance Committee.
Alderman Cecil Creal, chairman
of the-Ordinance Committee, in de-
.livering his report to the 'Council
maintained that passage of the
proposal would only "correct one
evil with another" since it would
send Sunday drinkers into sur-
rounding townships. "I would fa-
vor the proposal if the whole coun-
ty were to go along with it," he
Speaking from the floor as the
representative of the various church
groups who attended the meeting in
support of the measure, William Ma-
hey, of 804 Third Street, pointed to
a series of charts based on figures
supplied by Judge Jay H. Payne show-
ing over 250 arrests for disorderly
conduct and drunken driving on Sun-
days during the past year.
Albert J. Rapp, attorney for the
taverns and restaurants, maintain-
ed that on the basis of figures ob-
tained from police records there
were "only 29 arrests in the last
six months for drunken driving or
disorderly conduct in Ann Arbor
on Sundays. His figures included
the time period from 12 noon Sun-
day to 7 a~m. Monday.
"The advocates of the proposal on
the basis of their arguments are
speaking of prohibition and not of
barring the sale of intoxicating bev-
erages on Sundays," Alderman John
B. Waite, Professor of Law, told the
Council, following a speech from the
floor by Mrs. R. Wallace Teed, who
maintained that it was the duty of
Ann Arbor to its fighting men over-
seas, to keep the town free from

"An outstanding oportunity to en-
courage international cooperation
and understanding is offered here at
the International Center," Alfred
Connable, University regent, said in
an interview, yesterday at the Center.
"It is so important," he said, "that
we learn to get along together as peo-
ple and as nations. It is this sort of
cooperation that is necessary if we
wish to avoid another war, and here
at the International Center students
have an opportunity to attain that
understanding of foreign peoples-an
understanding upon which future co-
operation can be based."

the Center make up a select group,
that many of them will have respon-

Of Dewey-Warren Predicted
Compiled from Associated Press Dispatches
As an aftermath of the spectacular yictory of Gov. Thomas E. Dewey
in the Wisconsin primary Tuesday, talk increased in political circles yesterday
of a Republican presidential ticket composed of the former rackets prose-
cutor and Gov. Earl Warren of California.
While the Dewey-Warren ticket was being predicted, in Albany the
New York governor declined to comment "on any political question,"
standing firm on his previous statements that he is not a candidate for the

work on the program "constructive in
ideas, tireless in his efforts."

At Willow Run
Coeds planning to work at Willow
Run must understand the customs
and environment of the people with
whom they will be dealing, Dorothy
Cline told members of the Child Care
Want To Go Home
Miss Cline, who is assistant direc-
tor of the Federal Public Housing
Administraiton at Willow Run, spoke
to the volunteers at an orientation
"The people there are sensitive
about being strangers. When they
first came many of them were greet-
ed as intruders rather than as
guests," Miss Cline said.
She explained that there aren't the
elements of a real community at Wil-
low Run. The one thing that the
people there want is to get the war
over with and to get out of Wash-
tenaw County and back where they
Number of Workers Grows
Norman Hoben, expert on the train-
ing of recreation workers, said that
when he first went to work at Willow
Run Village in August of 1943 there
were 350 persons living there. Today
there are 1,805 people in the village.
"The school, commercial buildings
such as the post office and the
grocery store, the church and the
community center are the four points
towards which the people in the vil-
lage gravitate," he explained.
Lucy Chase Wright, '44, was chair-
man of the meeting. After the orien-
tation the coeds were divided into
five groups on the basis of the type
of work they will do at Willow Run.
The groups were Arts and Crafts,

tion, Girl Scouts and Nursery School.
Accident Brings Death
To Allies at Cassino
By The Associated Press
ALLIED HEADQUARTERS, NA-
PLES, April 6.--Allied bombers ac-
cidentally killed Allied troops and
failed to blast the Nazis out of Cas-
sino in their great assault March 15,
Lt. Gen. Ira C. Eaker conceded today,
but the Texas-born commander of
Allied Mediterranean air forces
sharply insisted the operation "ac-
complished all that was expected of it
by the air force commanders."
An, unstated number of Allied
troops were killed at Venafro, 12 miles
east of Cassino, when Allied bombar-
diers mistook that town for the tar-
get, Eaker said, and other bombs fell
wide of their mark near Cassino when
they. accidentally became dislodged
from their racks.
Iridicating his belief that the out-
come at Cassino should not be con-
strued as a black eye for aerial bom-
bardment, Eaker said it was not to
be expected that such an attack could
wipe out all resistance.
The Cassino result, he asserted,
only confirmed earlier lessons thatj
heavy four-engined bombers would
be better employed in attacking long-
range strategic targets, such as the
present campaign against the Bal-
kans, than in close tactical support
of ground forces, except in certain
emergencies "such as at Salerno."
Union To Hold
Continuing as a regular weekend
attraction, an informal dance will be
held from 7:30 to 10 p.m. today in
the north lounge of the Union.
The dance is open to all service-
men and civilians and there will be
no admission charge.
Last Friday the informal dance

success that it was decided to con-

About 100,000 Men
Per Month Still Needed
By U.S. Armed Forces

WASHINGTON, April 6.-The Ar-
my has reached its full strength of
7,700,000 but that fatt will not change
the present rapid tempo of the draft,

Draft calls must continue at levels

Draft To Continue
Men are also needed to provide re-
placements for both Army and Navy.
The War Department, in a state-
ment issued through OWI, announced
that its planned strength has been
reached but that it will require 75,000
to 100,000 men a month throughout
the remainder of 1944 to maintain

About 300,000 men will be needed

Karpovo, Rail Station,
Captured by Russians
LONDON, April 7, Friday.-(P)--
The First Ukrainian Red Army tight-
ened strangling nooses around two
large German forces encircled at
Tarnopol and near Skala yesterday
and closed in for the kill while Rus-
sians of the Third Ukrainian Arniy
splashed 13 to 15 miles through the
mud toward Odessa in an operation
designed to spring still another trap
around that Black Sea port.
The Russians announced they were
closing on Odessa from the northeast,
north and northwest, with the most
notable gain the capture of Karpovo,
railway station 23 miles northwest of
the port. The victory was credited to
a shrewd flanking blow at Nazis, who
were counter-attacking in a vain ef-
fort to retake Razdelnaya, vital rail
junction 38 miles northwest of Odes-
Razdelnaya fell only Wednesday.
The Russians advanced 15 mies in
yesterday's combat along the line
that once was the Germans' main
hope of escape but now is a Soviet
pathway towards Odessa.
On the north the Russians thrust
13 miles down the rain-swollen Ki-
yalnik river to the head of the salty
Kuyalnik lagoon that was a peace-
time center for health-bathers. Cap-
tured towns among more than 100
that fell on the Odessa front included
Maryanovka, 21 miles north of Odes-
sa, and Sverdlovo, 14 miles northeast.

William Turnage, 18, of Ypsilanti

Drive in Burma
Allies Ambush Enemy
On Roads Near Imphal
By The Associated Press
The Japanese invaders of India,
driving against Allied life lines into
Burma, continued Thursday to exert
pressure along the entire Assam front
but Allied forces ambushed enemy
units on the roads north and south of
the Indian base at Imphal. Allied
supply lines remained usable.
Meanwhile Chinese forces, operat-
ing in north Burma, captured two
small settlements in the upper Mo-
gaung Valley, smashed one Japanese
river stronghold and pressed their

on the north New Guinea coast, was
heavily blasted again by American
raiders. They unloaded 320 tons of
explosives at noon Wednesday, ac-
cording to an official southwest Pa-
7 Republican presidential nomination.
Another New York delegate who
had been counted in Willkie's claimed
column switched his allegiance to
Dewey, raising his claimed support
to 83 out of New York's 85 unpledged
district delegates and his total to a
minimum of 133 out of the 276 GOP
delegates so far chosen. A total of
530 is necessary for a nomination.
In Indianapolis Gov. John W.
Bricker of Ohio said that as a result
of this week's events he would intens-
ify his campaign for delegates to the
Republican national convention, but
would "support the Republican nom-
inee, whoever he may be."
From Tampa, Fla., came a state-
ment of sympathy for Willkie from
Senator Arthur H. Vandenberg of
Michigan, who said he knew how
Willkie felt, having been defeated
by Dewey himself in the Wisconsin
primary four years ago.
Those who foresaw a Dewey-War-
ren combination pointed out that the
Republicans are strongest in the
Midwest, and with the South tradi-
tionally Democratic, the crucial sec-
tion will be the West. Warren, com-
ing from the most populous Western
state, would provide an attraction to
balance Dewey, who represents the
East's biggest state.

While justifying the accelerated medical training program under
war conditions, Dr. A. C. Furstenberg, dean of the medical school, has

return to the normal four-year medical training program after the war.
The medical schools, Dr. Furstenberg pointed out, adopted the
