mously on main principles and pur-
poses. As stated in the constitution,
chief aims are to:
Strive for close international
understanding and cooperation of
youth in economic,- political, edu-
cational and social activity, in or-
der to make a maximum contribu-
tion toward eliminating fascism in"
all its forms and to raise the stand-
ard of living for the young genera-
tion.
Fight race, religious or sex discrim-
ination. Insure freedom of press, reli-
gion, assembly, demonstration and
assist the foundation of democratic
youth organizations where they do
not exist.
Work for good conditions of edu-
cation, labor and leisure and for
the development of cultural, edu-
cational and sports activities among
all youth.
The WFDY will set up perma-
nent headquarters in Paris.
Several of the delegates will also
attend the World Student Conference
at Prague.

Patterson Asks
Nine-Man Atom
Control Board
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 14-The War
Department called today for quick
creation of domestic controls over
atomic energy, as American, British
and Canadian leaders neared the end
of their conference on international
controls.
Secretary of War Patterson told a
news conference that domestic leg-
islation should be adopted promptly
to clear the way for international
action.
The War Department's idea of leg-
islation, he said, contemplates that
a nine-man commission would con-
trol all atomic energy activities, in-
cluding the construction of atomic
bombs.
President Truman, Prime Minister
Attlee of Britain and Prime Minister
Mackenzie King of Canada met again
at the White House. Allied diplo-
mats speculated that if the leaders
agree on any plan for control of
atomic force through the United Na-
tions, the plan would be immediately
communicated to Generalissimo Sta-
lin of Russia, and possibly to leaders
of France and China as well. Those
countries, with Britain and the Unit-
ed States, would have primary re-
sponsibility for carrying it out as
permanent members of the United
Nations Security Council.

Two-Point Program Requests United

In a letter to Sen. Arthur H. Vandenberg, eight University department
heads urge that the atomic bomb secret be turned over to a greatly
strengthened United Nations Organization, it was learned last night.
The letter, mailed to the Michigan senator Oct. 27, advocates a United
Nations armaments commission to safeguard a pool of international military
knowledge.
Signers of the document were Prof. Robert Angell, sociology; Prof.
Ernest F. Barker, physics; Prof. Chester S. Schoepfle, chemistry; Prof.
Walter F .Hunt, mineralogy; Prof. Kenneth C. McMurray, geography;
Prof. Theophil H. Hildebrandt, math-

HOMECOMING WEEKEND:
Ticket Sale for Events Opens

Union's Rainbow Room on football
weekends this season have had oc-
casion to notice that at times during
the evening there has been an un-
usually large crowd of prospective
dancers underfoot, making dancing
difficult and anything else impossible.
To allay this difficulty, after 500
tickets have been sold to any dance,
the Union management will hence-
forth inform newcomers that the
dance floor is already crowded, and
that they purchase admission at their
own risk. Because football dances
are primai'ily open house affairs with
many out-of-town visitors, the Union
does not feel justified in refusing en-
trance to .anyone.
After Dec. 1, when the crowds will
normally have subsided, Friday and
Saturday night dances will be as
usual limited to Union members and
their guests. The normal crowd at
membership dances is in the neigh-
borhood of 300 couples.
