Uninvited To Be
Denied Look-In'
San Francisco Parley
To Have No Observers
WASHINGTON, April 10-U )-
There will be no look-in for neutrals
and other uninvited nations at the
San Francisco Conference, Secretary
of State Stettinius indicated today.
Stettinius disclosed at his news
conference that some countries had
inquired about sending informal ob-
servers to the Golden Gate Confer-
ence on world organization, but they
were told it was impossible to ar-
Meanwhile, the United States dele-
gation to the conference, having
agreed upon making unit decisions
by a majority vote, worked toward
a meeting of minds on matters of
policy likely to arise. The members
are meeting at the state department
all this week.
Two of the eight delegates have
been absent from the sessions which
began yesterday. They are Com-
mander Harold L. Stassen, on active
duty with the Navy, and dormer Sec-
retary of State Cordell Hull, who is
recovering from a long illness and
Hull still hopes to go to San Fran-
cisco. The time for a decision by his
physicians is drawing near. There is
some thought that while he may not
be able to attend the opening session
he will almost certainly be able to go
out sometime during the meeting
which is expected to last at least a

"Veterans planning to take advan-
tage of training provided for them
under the G.I. Bill of Rights must
not be gypped' into receiving a low-
grade education," Dean James B.
Edmonson of the School of Educa-
tion said in an interview.
While Michigan has developed a
good plan and is exercising care in
granting credit, many states have
failed to make adequate provisions
for the protection of the veteran who
is planning to continue his educa-
tion, according to Dean Edmonson.
Every veteran should make certain
that the credits, certificates, or de-
grees granted by the college he se-
lects are recognized by the better
colleges and universities or by state
boards of education, the Dean urged.
Under the G.I. Bill of Rights the.
authority for veteran training and
education is vested in a state agency
designated by the governor of the
According to the February bulle-
tin of the American Council on Edu-
cation, many states have failed toi

realize how serious a responsibility
this is and have approved almost all
institutions indiscriminately. Twen-
ty-fivve per cent of the colleges on
approved lists of 39 states are not
accredited, the bulletin states.
Dean Edmonson pointed out that
the poorest college in a border state
has employed field agents to contact
returning veterans, and -he urged
that the veteran protect himself from
such practices by checking the col-
lege with the registrar of his state
At a recent Washington meeting
of the Executive Committee of the
American Council on Education Dean
Edmonson conferred with Kermit
Eby, who formerly taught in the Ann
Arbor high schools and who is now
the Education Director of the CIO's
education division, and with officials
of the Association of American Col-
leges, who are taking an active inter-
est in the protection of the veteran.
Yanks Capture
Nazi Officials
MUEHLHAUSEN, Germany, April
8-(AP)-Two hundred eighty-five
members of the German Foreign Min-
istry were captured last Thursday
when the Sixth Armored Division
rolled into this city 19 miles north-
west of Weimar.
Officials captured handled matters
such as salaries, exchange of na-
tionals with other countries, person-
nel and press communications, and
among them were several who had
spent many years in Washington.
However, Foreign Minister Joachim
Von Ribbentrop and other top figures
in his department were not among the
prisoners taken.
This section of the Foreign Mini-
stry, whose work was generally ad-
ministrative, was moved to Muehl-
hausen from Berlin about a month

At Packard
Motor Company
4,000 Employees To
Return Imnediately
DETROIT, April 10-(P)-A strike,
affecting nearly 4,000 Packard Motor
Company employes was settled at a
War Labor Board hearing late today,
while an additional 13,000 workers
were idle in industrial disputes in
other Detroit defense plnts.
RWLB Chairman Louis C. Mirian
said pfficers of Local 100, United
Automobile Workers (CIO) had
agreed to order all their workers to
return immediately, pending arbitra-
tion of the layoffs of some Packard
Inspectors Walk Out
The inspectors walked~ out Monday
charging the company expected the
reduced force of inspectors to handle
the same amount of work. A com-
pany spokesman said production cut-
bndacks- had caused some layoffs but
contended that improved test equip-
ment reduced the period of time re-
quired for each job.
A dispute over the number of em-
ployes permitted to work overtime on
Sunday, which occasioned a strike of
500 employes in the Chip andk Cool-
ant Maintenance Division of the Con-
tinental Motors Corp.,. resulted in
nearly 7,000 employes being sent
home today.
,000 in Sympathy Strike
Meanwhile, 2,000 employes of the
Kelsey-Hayes Wheel Company's Mc-
Graw Ave., plant and 1,000 at its
Plymouth Gun Plant joined in a
sympathy strike with 2,000 at the
company's Military Avenue plant who
walked out Monday in protest against
dismissal of several minor officials of
Local 174, UAW-CIO,
The company said the discharges
were for refusal to do work assigned,
for forcibly ejecting a foreman- from
the plant, and for refusing to work
with supervision assigned during
transfers within the plant. Harry
Southwell, Local 174 vice-president,
said the foreman was ejected because
workers believed him responsible for
demotion of another foreman who
was well-liked.
