French Claim
Arabs Carry
British Arms
De Gaulle Refuses
Churchill's Proposal
By The Associated Press
PARI, June 2.- General 1,a-
Gaulle charged today that Syrians
who fought the French "carried arms
furnished by the British" and sug-
gested that a four-power conference
Including Russia negotiate the ques-
tion "of the whole Arab world"-an
area where British interests pre-
When asked to give the names of
the "crowd" of British agents which
he said precipitated the Syrian and
Lebanese uprising, De Gaulle said,
"Everyone knows their names, and
I would blush to give them to you."
French Side Outlined
The French leader outlined the
French side of the Levant dispute
which has found the Syrians and
Lebanese refusing to negotiate with
the French because of French wishes
for concessions in their homelands.
"It would be a most monstrous
absurdity," said De Gaulle, "if, hav-
ing ended the war against Germany,
we should find ourselves confronted
by bloody incidents between the Al-
French-British Clash
De Gaulle told of French-British
political and economic clashes in the
Middle East , dating from the last
World War and clearly indicated his
refusal to submit the Middle East
problem to a tripartite meeting of
France, Britain and the United
States, as proposed by Prime Minis-
ter Churchill three days ago.
He declared Churchill's message
"will change nothing," adding, "I
haven't thought it necessary to reply
to this message."
Many Interested
"There are many who are inter-
ested in this question, De Gaulle said,
"First of all there are the Big Four-
France, Britain, the United States
and Soviet Russia. And there are
also the Arab states.
De Gaulle said France was entitled
to military bases the same as Britain
and the United States and charged
that the "British attitude" in the
Middle East was one reason for Fran-
ce's inability to give full indepen-
dence to Syria and Lebanon.

Historic City
Reported Safe

The historic city of Heidelberg
has suffered less than many towns
farther west, T15 Ralph Christensen,
a graduate of 1942, wrote to T. Haw-
ley Tapping, general secretary of
Alumni Association.
"Heidelberg was spared as far as
actual damage goes," Christensen
wrote. "Four or five houses were hit
but that can. hardly be counted.
After seeing some towns in Norman-
dy and Germany I can say that they
were very fortunate here."
Continuing, he described the city
itself, which is situated on the Rhine
plain. "They have some old churches
that are interesting. The one across
the square from the Rathaus is pe-
culiar because all around the outside
are built stalls for shoemakers and
florists and other tradesmen."

Instructors Answer
Workers' Problems
"A command performance of know-
ledge" is what the University Exten-
sion Service is supplying in one of
the nation's most successful labor
education programs.
Answering the question of labor,
"How can we be useful to you?" Uni-
versity directors used a stategrant
last fall -to establish a Workers' Ed-
ucational Service Office. It was plac-
ed under the directorship of A. K.
Stevens, University English profes-
sor, and Arthur A. Elder, of the De-
troit Public School System.
In the past seven months more
than 70 specialized instructors have
talked - not lectured - to nearly
.20,000 wage earners on subjects
selected by the workers.
"We go to the workers," Elder said.
"We meet in their labor halls or union
headquarters where the men are ac-
customed to settle problems among
themselves. It would kill our pro-
gram to ask them to come to the
Discussion subjects cover an un-
ending field of study. Interest in
international problems takes the
form of inquiry into labor condi-
tions in other countries. Classes in
collective bargaining have aided in

grievances in numerous Michigan
The Educational Service is strictly
an administrative body.
"We have no isms," Prof. Stevens
pointed out. "Our job is to dissemi-
nate knowledge in a manner helpful
to the workers in their organizations
and as citizens. We consider it our
duty to provide the very best teachers
for whatever subject is requested."
The first request received by the
Service-"What are the wage earn-
ers' rights under the Workmen's
Compensation Law?"-is still the
most popular. One group recently
asked for a discussion on "Labor's
Obligation to Society." Printed
copies of the discussion were re-
Michigan's unique approach to lab-
or education is being watched and
praised by the U. S. Office of Edu-
cation and university extension ser-
vices throughout the country.
A six-man advisory committee sup-
ervises the work of the Workers Ed-
ucational Service. It is composed of
two public members, two represent-
ing the University and the State Sec-
retaries of the CIO and the Michigan
Federation of Labor.

Western Michigan April 13, piled up
the amazing total of 26 hits off five
Boilermaker pitchers. As Coach Fish-
er put it, "The boys really' showed
power, and were unbeatable on the
field." The veteran mentor, who is
in his 25th year of coaching at Mich-
igan, was elated over his silver anni-
versary present given to him when
the nine cinched the Big Ten crown.
Although the Wolverines still have
a two game series to play next week-
end against the fifth place Ohio
State club, their hold on first place
would not be lost even by two de-
feats. Today'v double victory ran to
eight Michigan's unbroken string of
Conference triumphs for the season.
Louthen, Bowman Win
Ray Louthen, the io-mer Westerr
Michigan star who has not droppec

who led the Conference in 1944
tossed the Maize and Blue team t
the victories. Louthen took to th(
mound in the first tilt, and out
pitched Purdue's Bob Buysse with <
five-hitter. The big redhead was ex
tremely steady, and wasn't in troube
at any time.
His teammates got him off to a
lead in the sixth inning, when they
drove in four runs. Up to that timc.
both teams played scoreless ball, but
after the pig sixth, the Wolverine
added to their lead, and finished the
game on the long end of a 9-2 count.
The Michigan batters collected two
more tallies in the seventh, one in
the eighth, and slammed out two
more in the last frame.

Pope Clarifies
View of Nazism
VATICAN CITY, June 2.- (M)-
Pope Pius XII expressed the hope
today that the German people, purg-
ed of Nazism, "can rise to new dig-
nity and new life," but said that post-
war Europe is menaced by a "tyran-
ny no less despotic than those for
whose overthrow men planned."
In a world broadcast on Saint
Eugene's Day-his name day-the
pontiff reviewed the Vatican's pre-
war German policy.
The Pope declared that the Vati-
can concluded the 1933 concordat
with Germany "to set up a formid-
able barrier to the spread of ideas
at once subversive and violent" and
he asserted that Pius XI, his pre-
decessor, denounced the Nazi regime
in 1937 after the "solemn pact" had
been deliberately violated by the
The Pope's outline of the church's
stand on Germany was apparently

Reds Ask Rigid
Yalta Formula
Russians Seek Veto
Rights for Big Five
Russia faced the United Nations con-
ference today with a demand for
rigid interpretation of the Yalta for-
mula giving the big-five powers veto
rights in a world organization.
Overnight study of a Russian paper
on the proposed security council vot-
ing procedure disclosed wide differ-
ences between the Soviet on one side
and the United States, Great Brit-
ain, China and France, on the other.
Big Four Agree{
These four powers were in practical
agreement on what they considered
a "liberal" interpretation of the veto
provision agreed upon by President
Roosevelt, Prime Minister Churchill
and Premier Stalin at Yalta.
The Russians were represented,
however, as demanding that any of
the Big Five be permitted to exercise
a veto against even bringing any dis-
pute before the Security Council on
which they would have permanent
seats. The other four nations had
agreed to an interpretation permit-
ting the council to discuss interna-
tional disputes, but requiring unan-
imity on any positive action.

They also were said to have made
it clear that in practical operation of
the proposed league they thought the

Tokyo Bay.
In the Okinawa campaign, now in
its closing phases, the 10th Army Di-
visions ranged below the collapsed
Naha-Yonabaru line Saturday for
general gains up to 1,000 yards. They
were backed by tanks and heavy ar-
tillery, due to a cessation of rainy
weather which had deluged Okinawa
with 13 inches.of rain in 10 days.
Enemy resistance was moderate.
Tokyo Claims Success
The third fleet's assault on enemy
suicide plane bases came at a time
when Tokyo radio was trumpeting
that huge successes had been scored
by such attacks on shipping at Oki-
nawa and that the attacks would, be
stepped up. But Adm. Chester W.

MANILA, Sunday, June 3-Amer-
ican doughboys, in' a small amphi-
bious operation, made a new land-
ing on southern Mindanao Island
Friday in a maneuver designed to
envelop and decimate isolated Japa-

The landing was a shore to shore
operation, shifting some Yank for-
ces, probably from the Davao area, to
an invasion at Luayon, 75 miles south
of Davao City on the Island's west-
ern shore.
Gen. Douglas MacArthur's com-

made against only slight opposition
