Roosevelt Invites Allies
To Post- War Conference
42 Governments To Consider Proposals
For Cooperation on Money Problems
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, May 26. - Presi-
dent Roosevelt sent out a call today
for a conference of the United and
Associated Nations on, post - war
money problems starting July 1.
He invited 42 governments, includ-
ing the French Committee of Libera-
tion, to send representatives to Bret.-
ton Woods, N.H., for consideration of
proposals which include:
1. An international monetary plan,
revolving around an $8,000,000,000
gold-based stabilization fund, pro-
viding for a value in gold for each
LONDON, May 26. -()- Capt.
Randall W. Hendricks, Thunderbolt
fighter-bomber pilot of Youngs-
town, O., destroyed a vital bridge by
himself behind Hitler's west wall
in Belgium-but drew an official
reprimand, nevertheless because he
wasn't assigned to that target.
Hendricks with other Thunder-
bolt pilots was on the way to bomb
a target in Belgium when he spot-
ted a bridge and flew down and at-
"It was a double track railroad
bridge across a ravine and I came
down the ravine below the level of
the bridge," Hendricks said. "One
of my delayed action bombs struck
a support while another sailed
through the arch. Climbing up I
looked back as the center of the
bridge went down."
When he returned to base a rep-
rimand by Col. Gilbert L. Meyers
of Milford, Ta., awaited Hendricks
for bombing the wrong target.
As the International Center's last
Sunday evening program' for the
current semester, the Acapella Choir
of the -Ann Arbor High School will
present a varied program at 7:30
p. m. tomorrow in the Union Ball-
The choir, which has about 50
members, is under the direction of
Miss Rose Marie Grentzer, who
teaches the theory of music in the
University and directs scholar groups
in the University High School.
In announcing th e program,
George Hall, assistant to the director
of the International Center, said
that it will give the "younger Ameri-
cans an opportunity to supply enter-
tainment for foreign students on
campus and others who are inter-

Allies Would Furnish Funds
Under this plan, announced last
month as an agreement in principle
among fiscal experts of more than
30 nations, the United States would
provide between $2,500,000,000 and
$2,750,000,000 of the fund; Britain
would furnish $1,250,000,000 and Rus-
2. A $10,000,000,000 international
bank for reconstruction and devel-
opment--a sort of world RFC.
Declaring this country is "not in-.
terested" in dominating the post-war
monetary structure, a high treasury
official, who withheld use of his
"Neither Britain nor any other
country need fear that America will
use its preponderance of gold as a
"'big stick' to hold over the heads
Gold Is a Yardstick
"Gold is merely the yardstick," he
said. "In America it so happens our
currency is anchored to it. But we
realize that to insist on a gold stand-
ard such as controlled finances be-
fore the war would only isolate Am-
erica, financially and economically,
and endanger its future world trade."
Any agreements reached at the
conference - first full - dress world
parley summoned by President Roose-
velt-would be subject to approval
by the governments represented. In
the case of the United States, this
would mean Congressional approval.
Sgt. Raymond J. Schira, former
Whitmore Lake resident, has been
reported missing in action over Aus-

Gardens planted by the students
of Botany II serve to put into prac-
tice the botanical principles studied
in the course, thus combining the
practical application of gardening
with scientific knowledge, said Prof.

At the beginning of the semester,
weed seeds were studied and the
students were given unknown sam-
ples of seeds containing weed seeds
to identify. They also studied the
nature and control of plant diseases
under Prof. Edwin B. Mains, who
handles the first part of the course.

In '44 Elections
"Whether you're in the University,
in business or in organized labor, the
oncoming elections are of vital im-
portance to you," Sam Corbeta, co-
ordinator in the Second Congression-
al District for the CIO Political Ac-
tion Committee, said yesterday at a
meeting held in Local 38 (UAW-
The meeting, which was attended
by representatives from the city
UAW locals, the AFL, and University
students and faculty, was called for
the purpose of getting as large a
group of Ann Arbor citizens inter-
ested in the '44 elections as possible.
"In we fail in this election, we are
going to lose all that we have gained
at such great cost during the last
twelve years," Corbeta said.
Stating that "to do this job right
there will have to be a lot of leg-work
and we'll have to dig down to the
grass roots," Corbeta chastized those
people who are too lazy to do what is
required of them. "The result has
been that here in Washtenaw County
we have got one of the most reac-
tionary representatives in the coun-
try, Earl C. Michener, and one who
definitely does not represent us."
Olitzki To Give
Walter Olitzki, baritone with the
Metropolitan, Company, will give a
recital at 8 p. m. today in the Mich-
igan League under the sponsorship
of the local student Bha group.
Olitzki will be accompanied by
Miss Roberta Chatkim, '46, a stu-
dent in the School of Music.
Also on the program will be Har-
lan Ober, Bahai lecturer, who will
speak on "One Hundred Years Near-
er World tUnity."
This program is being presented
in connection with the centenary
of the birth of the Bahai faith which
was celebrated this week at the
Bahai Temple in Wilmette, Ill.
The room in which the program is
to be presented will be posted. No
charge will be made, and the pro-
gram is opened to the public.
Christian Fellowship Will
Hold Initial Spring Meet
All members of the Outdoor Chris-
tian Fellowship are requested to
meet bye5 p. m. today at the Chapel
for the first spring meeting.
Barney Briggs, Pharoah, stated
that the group wil proceed in a body
from the chapel to the Crossroads.

the students doesnt refer to their
childhood Raggedy Anns but to a
process used to determine the per
cent of seed germination," said Prof.
Clover. The 'rag doll' consists of a
piece of cloth marked off in squares
with seeds from different packets
placed on these square. Then the
cloth is folded, tied around a stick,
and put into water for two hours.
The best seeds will begin to sprout,
and the student can tell which pack-
et of seeds to use for the best yield,
explained Miss Clover.
In addition to seed testing and
gardening, the students work an
grafting, an unusual example of
which is graftingsa tomato plant on
a potato plant which results in the
production of tomatoes above the
ground and potatoes 12elow. Soils,
cultivated shrubs, edible and poi-
sonous wildplants are also studied.
Vegetable Seeds Planted
The gardens were started by plant-
ing seeds of tomato, cauliflower,
head lettuce, celery, and other vege-
tables in flats in the greenhouse, to
be transplanted outside when wea-
ther permitted. Weeds were also
planted in flower pots in order to
acquaint students with differences
between the leaves of the young
plants and the leaves of any weeds
growing. This was done to elimin-

Maj. Gen. C. C. Tseng, Army
spokesman, said that although the
city probably had fallen he could not

received confirmation. Loyang, six
times capital of China, lies in north-
western Honan on the Lunghai rail-

He explained that when one is
making arrangements unless he has
had a lot of experience, he never
knows just how it is going to sound
until he hears the songs. Usually,
he added, this is the result of a lack
of experience on the part of the ar-
ranger, and because different people
play the arrangement different ways.
Consequently, he said, adjustments
often have to be made at rehearsals
when he finds, for example, that he
has written a double forte for the
flutes in Middle C.
Acts as Synchronizer
At rehearsals the arranger has the
job of synchronizing the orchestral
arrangement with the choral, danc-
ing and solo parts. Dick claimed that
the least of his worries is the per-
formance of the musicians who play
The orchestra is made up of 11
pieces, and is based mainly on wood-
winds. It consists of two flutes, three
clarinets, one oboe, one French horn,
one bassoon, a string bass, a drum
and a piano. Nine coeds and three
men from Co. D are playing in it.
Studies Music 12 Years
Dick has been studying music for
over 12 years. A Princeton graduate
of '43, he earned his way through
college by playing jazz around New
York City, Westchester County, and
Princeton. All his studying and ork
has been in the field of classical mu-
sic. At Princeton he majored in
theory and composition.
According to Dick there is no quar-
rel between the two types of music.
He says classical music is 'conceived
on a different level from popular mu-
sic and serves a different purpose.
