Change of Project Site
To Detroit Is Asked
Proposed plans of the Michigan
Office of Veterans Affairs to estab-
lish a permanent veterans readjust-
ment clinic in Ann Arbor under the
direction of the University were under
fire this week when behind the
scenes agitation arose in Detroit to
have the clinic moved there.
The clinic, designed for the use of
veterans suffering from temporary
mental disorders, has received the en-
dorsement of the Board of Regents
and University Hospital.
Detroit Suggested for Clinic
A spokesman for the Michigan
Welfare League and the Michigan
Society for Mental Hygiene indicated
that the interest of the State could be
better served if the clinic were estab-
lished in Detroit.
He pointed out that a 50-bed enter-
prise would be grossly inadequate in
a few years and that a Detroit clinic,
working in conjunction with the
Wayne University Medical College,
would serve a wider range of people.
What is needed is a 200 to 500 bed
out-patient clinic for the treatment
of mental ills, he said.
To Cost $400,000
"This would cost approximately
$400,000," he pointed out.
What final disposition will be
made of the plan will come from
Lansing where consideration of the
appropriation for the clinic is sched-
uled within two weeks.

Forty high-ranking Army officers
have begun training on campus for
future posts as military attaches to
Latin American countries. -
Seven majors, twenty lieutenant
colonels and thirteen colonels are en-
rolled in the program, which is of-
ficially entitled the "Post Hostilities
Training Course." They served in
combat theatres during the war and
several had already served in Latin
The course is without precedent,
being the Army's first use of aca-
demic training in preparing officers
for military missions. The 14-week
program will include Latin America
geography, history, contemporary
events, economics and social, political
and cultural institutions. At the con-
clusion of this phase, the officers
will receive instruction in Spanish.

The courses are being offered in
the east and west conference rooms
of the Rackham Building by a spe-
cial committee of the faculty headed
by Prof. Arthur S. Aiton of the his-
tory department. Prof. Sanford H.
Mosk, of the University of California

several special lecturers supplement-

Elliott Runs for Three Touchdowns,

Daily Sports Editor
Michigan's football team piled up a two-touchdown lead in the first
half and then played its Purdue opponents on even terms the rest of the
way to hang up a 27-13 victory and remain in the running for the Western
Conference championship yesterday in Michigan Stadium.
The Wolverines apparently were not hampered by a continuous drizzling
rain that soaked the field and made ball-handling treacherous as they struck

May Foresees I
Vote in 1946
On Conscription
WASHINGTON, Nov. 17 --(P) --
Prospects for a House vote this year
on universal military training faded
today as Chairman May (Dem-Ky.)
expressed doubt that the Military
Committee could finish hearings be-
fore 1946.
Because of a desire to keep the
highly controversial subject out of
next year's Congressional elections,
House leaders had hoped to dispose
of the legislation before the Christ-
mas vacation.
Even after the hearings are fin-
ished, May pointed out, some time
will be needed by the committee to
write the legislation.

The charter was worked out in
London in a conference of 43 na-

but Russia was neither a member nor
represented. An earlier draft was
made public here several months ago.
The announced purpose of the or-
ganization and the charter is to
bring about, among other things, an
exchange of scientific information
such as that which President Tru-
man, Prime Minister Attlee and
Prime Minister MacKenzie King pro-
posed in their atomic energy policy
statement earlier this week.
The purpose of the organization
therefore is declared to be "to con-
tribute to peace and security by pro-

CHUNKING, Nov. 17 -(IP)-Chi-
nese Nationalists, fearing a Com-
munist coup, were reported quitting
Manchuria's capital of Changchun
today even as their own troops
fought into the province for the
first time.

Purdue, knocked out of contention
for the Big Ten title by the loss, made
a fight of it all the way, but failed to
capitalize on all its scoring opportu-
nities. Statisticsally, the two elevens
were just about even with the Boiler-
makers having the edge in first downs
and rushing yardage.
Passes Decisive
Michigan's superior aerial game
turned out to be the main difference
between the two rivals. Although
Coach Fritz Crisler's men attempted
only eight passes, five were complete,
and three produced touchdowns. Pur-
due's Bob DeMoss clicked on nine of
15 heaves, but could not connect
when the chips were down.
A crowd of 51,000, slightly smaller
than anticipated owing to the weath-
er, saw Michigan capitalize on every
scoring chance. Four times the Wol-
verines drove inside the Purdue 30-
yard line, and each time a touchdown
was the result. The Boilermakers had
five pay-dirt opportunities, but con-
verted only two.
A 50-yard pass play, Pete Elliott
to Bob Nussbaumer producer the first
Michigan score when the game was
just four and one-half minutes old.
A 63-yard landward march ended in
another score midway in the second
period, and the Wolverines seemed
off to the races.
Purdue Scores
Purdue cut the margin to six points
a few minutes later by taking ad-
vantage of a recovered fumble deep
in Michigan territory, but the Wol-
verines got that one back a minute
before the half ended on another
Elliott-Nussbaumer aerial, this one
good for 54 yards.
Coach Cecil Isbell's charges, obvi-
ously fired up for the game, attempt-
ed a comeback in the second half and
pulled within one touchdown early
in the fourth period on a 58-yard
march, but the Wolverines sewed up
the game by counting for the last

To Decide Fate
Of Scholarshi
Bomber Fund May Be
Liquidated To Aid Vets
The Bomber Scholarship Student
Committee will meet "in a week or
10 days" to decide whether the
Bomber Scholarship Fund should be
liquidated now to aid returning vet-
erans, Dean of Students Joseph A.
Bursley, faculty advisor to the com-
mittee, announced yesterday.
The fund, if liquidated, would be
turned over to the University Com-
mittee on Scholarships. Approximate-
ly $25,000 in war savings bonds has
been donated by campus groups since
the fund was established in February,
Few Applications
Questioned whether any inquiries
concerning aid from the Bomber
Scholarship Fund had been made by
veterans, Dean Burley said that "a
few" had been made during the sum-
mer term but that an insufficient
number of committee members were
on campus to take action making the
fund available. The University "tided
these veterans over with loans," he
Dean Bursley said he did not know
how much aid would be sought from
the fund, since it was established
prior to the G. I. Bill of Rights.
The Bomber Scholarship Fund was
conceived by Art Rude, of the Class
of 1942. The committee was formed
on Feb. 28, 1942, and began accepting
contributions on March 10. The cpm-
mittee's program was "social mobili-
zation" of the campus with the goal
of "the price of a bomber now,
scholarships for returning veterans
later." Main source of contributions
was campus social functions.
Three Requirements
Requirements for veterans seeking
aid from the fund are: (1) at least
six months in the armed forces (time
spent in a college training program
not counted), (2) at least two seme-
sters of credit hours in an under-
graduate school or college of the Uni-
versity but not enough to be given a
degree of any kind from the Univer-
sity, and (3) fulfillment of the Uni-
versity's general requirements-need,
character, ability-for scholarships.
The Bomber Scholarship Student
Committee comprises the presidents
of the Union, the League, IFC, Pan-
Hellenic Association, Congress, As-
sembly, Inter-cooperative Council,
SRA and a representative of The
