"The immediate objectives of
teachers today must be the broaden-
ing of educational opportunities, the
integration of the individual with
his community, and increased em-
phasis upon the preparation of
youth for world citizenship," Presi-
dent Alexander G. Ruthven, told
School of Education students yester-
Teachers will also need to move
outside of the classroom and give
more attention to informal educa-
tion at all levels, Dr. Ruthven said.
"Above all, and without delay, we
will need to bring before the peoples
of the world the all-important fact
that education is the right of every
man, the chief defense of nations
and the only road to enduring peace."
Emphasizing the inadequate facili-
ties, influence of pressure groups,
and other teaching difficulties, Dr.
Ruthven stated that many of the
handicaps have been the fault of
teachers themselves. Teachers must
accept the obligation to insist ag-
gressively that they are given the
freedom and tools necessary for their
Teachers must modernize their
concepts and procedures to conform
with the present period of rapid so-
cial changes, Dr. Ruthven concluded.

Vet Center Plan
A aiting0. K.
From Lansing
The University Hospital's medical
staff is ready to open a- temporary
Veterans' Readjustment Center as
soon as final approval of plans is re-
ceived from Lansing, according to
Dr. Albert C. Kerlikowske, assistant
medical director.
Lay help, orderlies and wardkeep-
ers are still needed, he said, before
the temporary center can be opened.
Since the beginning of a permanent
center depends upon the speed of the
building program, Dr. Kerlikowske
was unable to estimate when either
the temporary or the permanent cen-
ter would begin functioning.
Meanwhile, bids for the construc-
tion of the veterans' center will be
received by the state November 30.
To date the state's offer has been re-

instructor in economics in 1935-37.
He has also held the positions of
lecturer in the American Institute
of Banking, and lecturer on Soviet
economy, its theory and practice, at
Cornell Unviersity during the sum-
mers of 1943 and 1944.
Student Forum
Discusses Role
Of Atom Bomb
"Either people must become suffi-
ciently interested in the implications
of atomic power, or they must take
the alternative of digging a hole deep
enough to hide in."
This was the point made by chem-
istry instructor David Tyner, who
participated in research on the bomb,
at the Town Hall Student Forum last
night. Tyner urged international
control of the bomb.
World control of the bomb was seen
as the solution to saving the world
from self-destruction by John Wilson,
who participated in the Hiroshima
raid, which introduced the A-bonb
to the world.
In an open discussion, students and
townspeople agreed that public edu-
cation as to the implication of atomic
force and a. world council with com-
plete control over the future use of
atomic power are essential to the
maintenance of civilization.


Congress Told
of Peace Hope
By General Ike
Peacetime Training
Called 'Imperative'
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 15 - Gen.
Dwight D. Eisenhower told Congress
today there is hope for perpetual
peace, but America should keep her
young men trained for war lest she
be left "defenseless and naked before
a future enemy."
A year's peacetime training for
every youth of 18 is "imperative" for
the safety of the nation, the five-star
European commander testified to the
House military committee.
'Hope Isn't Enough'
"If I didn't have hope for peace
I wouldn't be here-I would have
jumped out of my plane over the At-
lantic," the General declared.
But, he said, hope isn't enough.
The next aggressor will smash first
at the United States from far away,
he said. "We will not have time to
train units before we are faced with
the final issue of defeat or victory."
Eisenhower wouldn't say who he
thought the next aggressor-if there
is one-might be. In answer to ques-
tions by Rep. Thomas (Rep.-N. J.) he
, Britain will never go to war against
the United States.
Nothing To Gain
Russia has "not the slightest thing
to gain" by attacking this nation and
moreover "I'm convinced her policy
is one of friendship with us."
However, it is just as necessary in
my opinion to train the citizenry as it
is to send them by compulsion to the
first grade when they are six years
old," he said.
Man, 77, Dies
In INight Fire
At Fairgrounds
Daniel K. Newell, 77 years old, was
burned to death last night in a fire
that destroyed three-fourths of the
County Fairgrounds livestock barns
and killed two horses.
Newell, a worker at the Fair-
grounds, apparently overcome by
smoke, was trapped in his quarters.
The fire originated at 8:15 p. m. in
Newell's quarters and quickly spread
to adjoining barns.
Before Ann Arbor Township and
city fire departments could get the
blaze under control, the barns 'had
burned to the ground. With the ex-
ception of the two horses, all other
livestock was safely evacuated.
The Fairgrounds are just outside
the city limits on Jackson road.
AVC Chapter
Picks Officers
The Ann Arbor Chapter of the
American Veterans Committee
elected their executive officers last
night at the Michigan Union. }
The term of office will last until
the first of March, 1946 for the fol-
lowing officers; Chairman, Mr. Vic-
tor J. Baum; Vice-chairman, Mr.
Eugene C. Martinson; Corresponding
Secretary, Miss Suzanne LaDriere;
Secretary-Treasurer, Mr. Haven E.
The first motion brought to the
floor before these officers by the AVC
steering committee was on veteran
housing policy procedure of the AVC
for the coming year. Other sugges-
tions on the agenda were better en-
rollment information for incoming
veterans, the full summer session,

and eating cooperatives.
Charles G. Bolte, chairman of the
National Planning Committee of the
AVC was requested by mail to appear
on campus during the membership
drive which will be held in December.
He is expected to speak at one of the
Town Hall meetings at the University
during his stay in Ann Arbor.

Now on his second transcontinental

Tony Momsen, a relative unknown

Left halfback, until now shared by
Walt Teninga and Pete Elliott, came
up for revision when Teninga was in-

(M)-British parachute troops, back-
ing up a "punishment by death"
warning to rioters and enforcing a
complete curfew, restored order' to-
day to Tel Aviv after outbreaks in
which five persons were killed and
more than 100 wounded.
The dead were Jews. The injured
included Jews, British troops and
A British officer blamed the viol-
ence on a "minority group" and said
that the people in general were not
violating the curfew. Dr. Israel Ro-
kach, mayor of Tel Aviv, appealed
over the Palestine radio for disci-
pline and observance of the curfew.
Several hundred persons were re-
ported arrested before the distur-
bances, which lasted 24 hours, were
quelled by thousands of troops and
civil police. But the situation was
so well in hand tonight that Maj.

U. S. Leave China
"Frankly, until Communist charges
of American troops interferring in the
civil warfare in China are proved,
I'm not willing to believe them,"
Prof. Preston W. Slosson of the histo-
ry department told a Daily represent-
ative last night.
"I do think," Prof. Slosson con-
cluded, "that as a matter of expedi-
ency and prudence it would be wise
for U. S. troops to pull out of China
as soon as possible. Nothing would
please the American people less than
to get involved in the internal con-
flict of another nation."

Other Nations
Must Reveal
Their Secrets
Inspection of All Atom
Plants by UNO Asked
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 15-President
Truman and the leaders of Britain
and Canada today offered the secrets
of atomic force to Russia and the rest
of the world on two main conditions.
Those conditions are:
1. That nations which get the
atomic secrets must equally share
their own scientific secrets now and in
the future, when other new and ter-
rible weapons of mass destruction
may be invented.
2. That the United Nations devise
and establish world-wide means of in-
specting atomic plants in all coun-
tries to help prevent the use of the
atom for war purposes.
World-Wide Inspection
The conditions were set forth in a
sweeping declaration on atomic policy
issued at the White House today by
Mr. Truman, Prime Minister Attlee
of Great Britain and Prime Minister
MacKenzie King of Canada.
This said the atomic bomb and oth-
er terrible weapons can be completely
controlled only by banishing "the
scourge of war from the eath" and
it called for building up the United
Nations to that end.
Byrnes Cables Message
A short time before, 'the declaration
had been cabled to the foreign mini-
sters of Russia, France and China
all permanent members of the United
Nations Security Council-by Secre-
tary of State Byrnes.
Russia is the only other nation in
the world today regarded by American
officials as having the industrial and
natural resources capable of atomic
developments and diplomats said that
the pronouncement in effect puts the
issue of atomic secrecy now squarely
up to Moscow.
Communicated to UNO
This afternoon the statement was
communicated officially to all the rest
of the 51 members of the United
Some top officials described the
plan as a "generous offer" to the rest
of the world in view of the fact that
the United States alone had spent
$2,000,000,000 developing the atomic
bomb. The plan was worked out dur-
ing six days of intensive discussions
among American, British and Cana-
dian officials.
French Policy
Hinders Allies
Price Alleges Desire
To Dismember Reich
WASHINGTON, Nov. 15 -(P)-
Byron Price, President Truman's
special investigator, said today that
French policies are leading to the
"econonic dismemberment" of Ger-
many, contrary to the aims of the
Potsdam Agreement.
Price told White House newsmen
after a call on the President, that
France had refused to agree to any
plans of the Control Council to keep
Germany as an economic unit. As a
result, he said, critical conditions
can be expected this winter with
starvation, riots and disease a dis-
tinct possibility.
The wartime chief censor spent
two months in the American, French
and Russian zones of occupation
surveying relations between the mil-
itary government officials and the
German population.
Price gave his informal summary
to reporters as it became known
that the United States and France
have begun conversations here on
France's proposal to strip Germany

'of control over her industrially rich
Ruhr and Rhineland.

Training Bill



"The state university is the cap-
stone of the educational system of the
state and the graduate school is the
capstone of the university," President
Alexander G. Ruthven told members
of the graduate student body at an
assembly sponsored by the Graduate
Student Council last night in the
Rackham Building.
Dr. Ruthven urged the students to
secure specialized training in fields
for which they have genuine interest
and love as well as to broaden and
deepen their education. "The world
needs ever better practioners in every
field of human endeavor," he said,
"and it has never needed them more
than at the present time."
Assistant Dean Peter Okkelberg of
the Graduate School welcomed the
graduate students to the University
gave a brief sketch of the Graduate
School's history and development
since the first advance degree was
granted in 1849. He particularly wel-
comed the large number of foreign
students who are enrolled in the
Graduate School as well as the many
veterans who are resuming their

Dean Edmonson Warns Veterans
Against TFly-by-Night' Colleges

Thousands of returning veterans
seeking higher education are still in
danger of being "gyped by fly-by-
night colleges," Dean James B. Ed-
monson, of the School of Education,
warned yesterday.
Adequate safeguards against new
"sheepskinners" have been set up in
Michigan by Dr. Eugene B. Elliot,
state superintendent of public in-
struction, assisted by a committee
representing Michigan's leading col-
leges and educational associations,
Dean Edmonson said. "But most
states have no such policing policies.'
"The only way to prevent these
schools from getting the veteran's
$500 is to expose their low stand-
ards and poor facilities."
