New Delegates
Insure Majority
For Roosevelt
Unconfirmed Pledges
Gives Dewey Hope
For GOP Nomination
By The Associated Press
New Jersey and California Demo-
9rats put 86 more delegates in Presi-
dent Roosevelt's column in primary
voting yesterday (Tuesday) and
pushed his total far above the re-
quired majority for another nomin-
ation two months in advance of the
party's national convention.
Just for good measure, party lead-
ers counted eight more for the Pres-
ident from Delaware and ten from
Montana, and Delaware partisans
heard Senator Tunnell (Dem., Del.)
call for the "forced induction" ofthe
chief executive to stand for a fourth
term.
Gov. Thomas E. Dewey of New York
appeared assured of New Jersey's 35
GOP delegates elected in another
primary yesterday, while California
Republicans -put their favorite son
into the Presidential picture by
choosing 50 delegates nominally
eledged to Gov Earl Warren, GOP
convention keynoter.
Meanwhile, two new prospects for
Democratic National Convention key-
noter figured in speculation yester-
clay - Mark Ethridge, publisher of
the Louisville Courier-Journal, and
Gov. Spressard Holland of Florida.

Kelly Unopposed in
Republican Primary
LANSING, May 16.-(P)-Gover-
nor Kelly found himself unopposed
in the Republican primary while a
three-way race was assured for the
Democratic gubernatorial nomina-
tion as the deadline for the filing of
nominating petitions fell at 5 p.m.
today.
In contrast to the Democratic par-
ty's reported inability three weeks
ago to find a top man for its ticket,
Democratic voters may choose now
from Earnest C. Brooks, Holland, the
party's state chairman and former
state senator, William J. Cody, of
Highland Park, Wayne County Cir-
cuit Court Commissioner, and Ed-
ward J. Fry, Fremont, former state
chairman and state racing commis-
sioner.
No new faces intervened to upset
the prospect of a heated contest for
the Republican lieutenant governor-
ship nomination between Auditor-
General Vernon J. Brown, the ad-
ministration's candidate, and the in-
cumbent, Dr. Eugene C. Keyes, lab-
eled by Kelly as a foe of the admin-
istration.
James H. Lee, Detroit corporation
counsel, was unopposed in his cam-
paign for the Democratic nomination
for lieutenant-governor.
Candidates filing with the secre-
tary of state for the Second District
are: Earl C. Michener, incumbent,
Adrian, and Galen Starr Ross, Ann
Arbor, Republicans; Redmond M.
Burr, Ann Arbor, and Donald Gay,
Milan, Democrats.

SAFETY VALVE HUMOR:
Divisional Newspaper Relates
Funny Happenings in the War

By KENNETH L. DIXON
Associated Press Correspondent
WITH THE AEF IN ITALY-No-
body knows better than the editors
of the 45th Division News that while
war isn't funny, still funny things
happen in war and sometimes hu-
mor is the safety valve which saves
the soldiers' sanity. ,
So almost every weekly edition of
the crack army news sheet is crowd-
ed with such stories as these:
It was getting hot around his ob-
servation post when Cpl. Andrew
Zapiecki of Toledo, 0., tried to
contact his regiment by radio and
found a German radio operator
jamming the frequency with a con-
versational drone which went:
"One, two, three, four-sorry, you
can't get through-five, six,rseven,.
eight-you can't get through-
nine, ten, eleven" and so on.
Shouted Zapiecki: "Get the hell off
the air, you blankety-blank so and
so." It didn't work. Then he had
an inspiration. "Say," he yelled at
the German, "What's the news from
the Russian front?"
The German shut up.
To say the GI's are unhappy about
the regulation preventing them from
keeping company with the commis-
sioned Army nurses is putting it much
more than mildly. So the clearing
company bo's at the Beachhead Hos-
pital smarted 'at th'e added insult
when a sign was put up between their
tent and the nurses', saying the
nurses' area was off limits to all
Army personnel except officers.
Rubbing salt in the enlisted men's
wounded pride was the clothesline,
behind the sign, on which the

Finals To Be Held

test finals will be held at 11 a.m.

'46, Evelyn McGee, '46, Ruth Novik,
'46, Howard E. Shuman, Joyce Sie-
gan, '46, and Robert L. Sucher. Each

nurses hung their flimsy, feminine
laundered panties, brassieres and
such stuff.
But Cpl. Eugene Moore of Durham,
N.C., was not a man to permit such
treatment to go unchallenged. In
front of the clearing company's tents
he erected a huge sign reading "off
limits to all nurses" and then as
the final defiant touch he strung
up a clothesline beside it. And there
each day several suits of Cpl. Moore's
long winter underwear flapped his
answer to the pink undies on the
line across the way.
And then there was Cpl. Antonio
D. Maestes of San Juan Pueblo, N.M.,
who reported for sick call one day.
Maestes said he had a cold until a
German shellburst into a nearby
building, knocking him down. When
he got to his feet the cold was mirac-
ulously gone.

Soldiers working and fighting in
the tropics may not need to take
salt tablets after one or two weeks if
they have become acclimatized and
are eating an average diet, according
to studies made under the direction
of Dr. Jerome W. Conn at the Uni-
versity Hospital.
A report on studies done under
contract with the Office of Scientific
Research and Development by the
University' Hospital's tropical clim-
ate research of the nutrition labora-
tory was submitted by Dr. Conn last
week to the American Society for
Clinical Investigation meeting in At-
lantic City.
"Army regulations have been
that soldiers who sweat a good deal
in the tropics ordesert be given
salt in fairly large amounts," Dr.
Conn explained. The research pro-
ject was undertaken because those
soldiers taking salt often com-
plained of undesirable effects such
as nausea and vomiting with the
implication that use of salt supple-
ments was not wholly desirable.
Dr. Conn emphasized that men
doing hard work in the tropics do
need salt until they have become
acclimatized. But the report states
Dr. Liu Expects
More Political
Liberty in China
Speaking on "China's Constitu-
tional Evolution," Dr. N. C. Liu, head
of the political science department
at National Wuhan University, in-
dicated in a speech yesterday at the
International Center that China will
adopt a presidential system of gov-
ernment one year after the end of
the war.
Dr. Liu, who is one of the six
Chinese professors invited by the De-
partment of State to visit the United
States, said that this democratic form
of government will provide a Nation-
al Assembly which will be supported
by direct representation of the Chi-
nese people.
The Assembly would be composed
of 2,000 delegates from all of the
districts, muncipalities and the spe-
cialized territories, he said. The term
of office, he continued, would be six
years and they would convene every
three years.
Dr. Liu's criticism of this plan was
that the Assembly should meet an-
nually and should have legislative
powers.
Under this new system the people
would have complete freedom of
speech and would be permitted to
organize political parties, he stated.
"China," Dr. Liu continued, "has
progressed a great deal from the
time of the Manchu Dynasty up to
the present republic and will continue
to make further changes toward de-
mocracy."
Dr. Liu was introduced by Prof.
Everett S. Brown, chairman of the
political science department, who
commented that "there ishnothing
that binds men closer together than
fighting side by side. We know that
this friendship between China and
the United States will continue after
the war."
