Sponsored by the combined veter-
ans' organizations of Ann Arbor,
the show is free to townspeople and
students. According to George Leon-

ganization, members of JGP, and
bonds may even be purchased in the
cashier's office. Any bonds bought

Sophs To Meet
Today; Answer

"My gosh, they're afraid of us,"
quoth freshman captain Dick Emer-
ick yesterday about the failure of
the sophomore class to respond to
the freshman challenge in the Class
Games Classic at 2 p. m. EWT Sat-
urday on Ferry Field.
He spoke of the scheduled sopho-
more class meeting last week at
which only a half dozen eager, will-
ing and able sophs showed up tof
make plans for what they say
will be the rout of the freshmen
on the field of honor. Navy and
civilian sophomores will get an-
other chance to band together
against the junior-sized upstarts
tonight, with a second meeting at
8 p. m. in Rm. 316 of the Union.
"If they don't turn out tonight,

you know the answer-they don't care
enough about their allege honor
to defend it," Roy Rogers, frosh lead-
er, pointed out. Freshmen have is-
sued uncomplimentary proclama-
tions to the sophomores urging thema
unite now or meet their doom.
Class Games has been revived this
year-for the first time since 1940-
to bring back some of the traditional
fire and spirit that always highlight-
edathe interclass clashes in pre-war
years. Freshmen have turned out
some 50 strong in preparation for
the Saturday fracas. Sophomores
have yet to show anything but apa-
thy to the youngsters' challenge.
"They must be dead," Bob Goldman
Soph leaders Dave Duttweiler, Art
Sakel, George Slocum and Dewey
Tennant together with Coach Earl
Riskey will be on hand tonight' to'
organize the sophomores. Movies of
the Michigan-Ohio State game will
be shown. Both sides have urged a
strong turnout tonight, because the
games will be fair only if the teams
a evenlv maihed.

Rash Behavior
An epidemic of German meas-
les has hit the Michigan campus.
"The worst feature of these
measles is the alarm they are
causing," Dr. Warren E. For-
sythe, Director of the University
Health Service, said. Actually they
are not very serious, since they
are mild, last only three days, and
seldom have complications. A few
days of rest and a reasonable
amount of isolation will cure
The symptoms of these measles
are the same as those of a com-
mon cold, except that with the
measles there is an enlargement
ofnthe glands behind the ears,
and a generalized rash.

Lucking Says
Bear Costs
Suit To Be Held in
Court on Monday
A show cause hearing will be held
in Circuit Court Monday on a suit
seeking to enjoin Ann Arbor from
furnishingrfurther fire protection to
the University unless "under lawful
authority or contract authorized by
the state legislature."
Plaintiff in the case, filed yester-
day, is Alfred Lucking, Detroit at-
torney and owner of the Wolverine
Building, Washington and Fourth
Lucking Explains Case
Stating that Ann Arbor taxpayers
should not be compelled to support
fire protection for a state-owned in-
stitution, Lucking explained that the
University doubles the fire hazard
to individual property because of
several old buildings, including 'U'
and Mason Halls on campus.
"The City of Ann Arbor which has
an assessed evaluation of approxi-
mately $50,000,000 is giving free fire
protection to the $60,000,000 property,
owned and controlled by the Univer-
,ity Board of Regents," he said. "Yet,
no actual compensation for the pro-
tection has been given the city."'
$50,000 Asked
Lucking contends.that the Regents
should be required to pay the city
$50,000, plus interest, which he said
was the reasonable value of fire pro-
tection furnished by the city in the
past six years.
Owners of two small buildings,
housing places of business, adjoin-
ing the Wolverine . Building and
termed "serious fire hazards," were
also named in the suit.
World Charter
May e Signed
In Two Weeks
Under the impetus of good will gen-
erated by agreement on a touchy
regional security issue, the United
Nations Conference officially set for
its goal today the signing "in the
first week of June" of a new world
charter designed to keep peace,
Specific steps taken today toward
a compromise on another big prob-
lem- trusteeships- added to the
chances that the conference might
finish its momentous enterprise in
another fortnight.
A move to promise either eventual
independence or self-government to
colonial peoples under international
rule was reported to have been a-
greed upon substantially by repre-
sentatives of the British and Ameri-
can delegations.
Russia has been battling for inclu-
sion of the goal of independence.
Britain and the United States so far
have preferred the naming of self-
government. The Chinese suggested
listing both.
Commander Harold E. Stassen of
the American. delegation and Lord
Cranborne for the British were re-
ported today to have agreed gener-
ally to support the Chinese formula.
As this boost to conference prog-
ress developed, the policy-making

steering committee distributed to
delegates a time-tables suggesting
that all committees and subcommit-
tees which have been sifting amend-
ments to the charter and drafting its
various chapters, complete the job
"by the end of the present week."

Tension over
Trieste Question
Eased byTito
Moscow May Have
Caused Recent Action
By The Associated Press
LONDON, May 21.-Marshal Tito
of Yugoslavia appeared tonight to
have -eased diplomatic and military
tension over the occupation of Tri-
este and its surrounding area, pos-
sibly under Moscow prompting.
Diplomatic sources with contacts
in the British Foreign Office de-
scribed the situation as "definitely
improved" and there was a disposi-
tion to regard the problem as ripe
for an early solution.
Tito Withdraws
Already, Tito was withdrawing his
troops from southern Austria, one
of the points of dispute.
Yugoslav occupation headquarters
had been withdrawn from Trieste.
although the military situation there
was unchanged with both British and
Yugoslav troops occupying the Adri-
atic port.
While delegates purporting to
speak for the citizens of Trieste sent
a bellicose message of allegiance to
Tito, progress was apparent on dip-
lomatic levels.
Solution Sought
Diplomatic channels said it had,
become quite clear in the last 24
hours that the Yugoslavs were pre-
pared to seek a solution without
armed force, and that Tito's govern-
ment had indicated a willingness to
discuss the question with the Allies.
Developments were indicated on
two diplomatic fronts-first Tito's
apparent readiness to discuss direct-
ly with Italy the long-term status of
the territory, and second his inclina-
tion to discuss the present status of
occupation with the Allies.

Jap Planes Attack
Making their first attack in several
days, 35 Japanese warplanes struck
at American shipping off Okinawa
Sunday evening. They damaged five
light units, Nimitz said. Twerity-six
attackers were shot down.
Fleet Airwing one search planes
have sunk 86,880 tons of Japanese
shipping and damaged 81,500 tons
since inauguration of their sweeps
to Korean and Japanese rwaters. They
also have destroyed 21 Japanese
planes and damaged 15. These four-
motored Privateers and Liberators
twin engined Mariners went into ac-
tion from Okinawa bases only a few
weeks ago.
Yaku Island Bombed
Their latest raid was a bombing
attack on Yaku Island, northern Ry-
ukyus, where they started large fires.
Marine planes attacked the Palaus
and Marshalls.
One army Mitchell bomber was
lost to antiaircraft fire in an attack
on Minami Cape, Shumushu Island,
northern Kuriles, Sunday. Navy

But the Nipponese, believed to have
still around 30,000 troops massed
along the four-mile line, piled from
caves and tunnels of their hill de-
fenses and fought the Yanks to the
death. Front reports said the first
Marine Division in a mighty tank-
supported thrust drove to the crest
of the last ridge overlooking Shubi,
second largest city on the island.
Shuri is a mass of rubble, blasted
by Naval and land artillery and aer-
ial bombs. But Shuri castle, thick-
walled and moated home of medieval
Ryukyuan warriors, remained a tough
bastion to be cracked.
