GM Halts,
Of Strike


lemlal(4 Are

By The Associated Press
DETROIT, Nov. 26--General
Motors Corporation tonight refused
to re-enter discussions with the
United Auto Workers (CIO) on wage
issues that have idled 225,000 GM
"Unless you are now prepared to
modify your unreasonable wage de-
mands we do not think that anything
can be gained by further discussions
with your union at this time," the
company declared.
Accused of NLRA Violations
GM's curt reply came less than 24
hours after Walter Reuther, UAW
vice-president, asked GM to resume
negotiations on the 30 per cent wage
rate increase issue. Reuther also
asked that press and radio men be
admitted to the proposed session.
The UAW, in a statement signed by
Reuther, tonight accused GM of "fur-
ther violations of the National Labor
Relations Act" and expressed ignor-
ance of any illegal picketing, asc
charged by the company.
The union declared that it was
"still prepared to negotiate a settle-
ment of this issue any time and atj
any place."
Creates Lawlessnesst
General Motors statement assailedf
what it termed union refus'al to per-j
mit many, salaried employes to enter
its plants throughout the country.-
''When your union uses force andj
threats of force to interfere with free
entrance at our plants you are creat-
ing a situation of lawlessness." ,
The company estimated today that
50,000 salaried employes are being
kept out of plants throughout the
The corporation contended that,
collective bargaining negotiations
were broken off Nov. 20 by the strike
Anderson declared:
"We engaged in collective bargain-
ing with your union in meetings cov-
ering a period of weeks. It was clear
to us from the very beginning that
you were determined to have a strike
in General Motors.
"You now have that strike (your
so-called labor blockade) which you
planned for many months."
Halfway Mark
In Bond Drive
Reached by U
With some $16,000 already sub-
scribed, the University still has nearly
halfway to go to reach its $29,000
quota in the Victory Loan Drive,
which ends here Saturday, Dec. 8.
There will be no organized campus
solicitation for the drive. Orders for
bonds should be placed in the Cash-
ier's Office, either in person or
through campus mail.
All bonds sold during the campaign
will be stamped with the Victory
Loan Torch, which has become the
symbol for the drive. Bonds will be
ready for the purchasers the day after
they are ordered.
Featured in the Victory Loan is the
new $200 bond issued in commemora-
tion of the late President Roosevelt.
The bond is sold for $150.
Fi l To Become
Austrian Head
VIENNA, Nov. 26 --(P)- Leopold
Figl, 43-year-old chairman of the
rightist Volkspartei, appeared slated
tonight to become chancellor of Aus-
tria as a result of Sunday's national,
assembly elections.
Figl said his party won the election
by 51 per cent in defeating the So-
cialist party of Chancellor Karl Ren-
ner which ran second and the Com-
munists, who trailed a poor third..

The Volkspartei, like the Socialist, is
strongly Catholic.
With four districts undecided and
12 unreported, the Volkspartie al-
ready had won 76 seats, the Social-
ists 70 and the Communists three.
Most of the unreported districts were
expected to be carried by the Volks-

Wanted: Heavily
Dressed Filcher
Somewhere tonight in Ann Ar-
bor there strides a heavily if not
well dressed creature in a flannel
night-shirt, a pair of blue jeans,
a plaid shirt, a striped pajama topj
and a pair of army shorts.- '
It is highly possible that this
person merely wanted some tan-
gible memory of the 1945 Michi-
gan Homecoming, because he ac-
quired his wardrobe from the
display at White House, 1617
However, the residents of the
abovementioned house not only
want some tangible memory of
said homecoming, but are faced
with the problem of weathering
the approaching winter without
their nearest and dearest woolens.
"In other words," say the girls
of White House, "would the person
who filched from our front lawn
please return the filchings?"
Jennie Tourel
Will Present,
Concert Today
Jennie Tourel, Russian born mezzo-
soprano of the Metropolitan Opera
Company, and former star of the
Opera Comique in Paris, will feature
selections by Debussy, Rachmaninoff,
Moussorgsky and Gretchaninoff on
her program at 8:30 p.m. today in
Hill Auditorium.
As the fourth attraction in the
Choral Union concert series, Miss
Tourel will make her Ann Arbor de-
but, accompanied at the piano by
Erich Kahn. Her performance of the
popular young New York City Sym-
phony conductor, Leonard Bern-
stein's "I Hate Music" will climax the
Soloist with Boston Symphony
Within a short time after her
American debut the New York Phil-
harmonic under Toscanini, , Miss
Tourel was heard as soloist with
Serge Koussevitsky and the Boston
Symphony and with the NBC Sym-
phony under Stowkowski in her first
season. She has participated also in
oratorio and has presented several
Town Hall recitals.
Called "the greatest recitalist to
come up in a decade," Miss Tourel
has been a frequent guest on the
radio and has tou~red Brazil where she'
attracted the attention of Villa-Lo-
bos. Her concert here tonight is part
of a transcontinental tour, of the
United States and Canada.'
Educated in France
The petite, dark-eyed French-Rus-
sian singer, celebrated for such diver-
sified roles as Carmen and Mignon,,
was reared and educated in France.
Her parents were Russians who
brought her to France when she wasI
a little girl.

Daily Sports Editor
Michigan Head Football Coach and
Athletic Director H. O. (Fritz) Crisler
rang down the curtain for all prac-
tical purposes on the 1945 Wolverine
football season yesterday with the
announcement of 29 . major letter-
winners, 16 secondary awards, and 30
numeral-winners from the squad
which placed second in the Western
Formal announcement of the
awards will be made tonight at the
annual football banquet in the Mich-
igan Union, at which time Crisler will
review the fall grid campaign. The
squad members will also take the op-
portunity to elect a captain for 1946.
Football Bust
Officially, however, the season can-
not be counted as over until after
the "Football Bust" in Detroit, sched-
uled for Dec. 4. The squad will be
permanently disbanded at that time.
The total award list of 75. one of

py 170-pound center, was named at

the highest on record, was in keeping
with the tradition set by the 1945
Wolverine aggregation which boast-
ed few individual stars but a large
number of competent football play-
Won Seven of Ten
Crisler has already paid high trib-
ute to the freshman-studded squad
that confounded the experts by win-
ning seven of 10 games making up
the tpghest schedule a Michigan
eleven has ever been called upon to
tackle. "It was a great bunch to
work with," he has been quoted as
saying, and he will probably elaborate
on that statement tonight.
Lost to Indiana
Among other things, the Wolver-
ines won six of seven Western Con-
ference games, losing only to Indiana,
the eventual winner. That loss, by a
single touchdown, was the margin
by which the Hoosiers nosed out the
Wolverines for championship laurels
and forced them to accept runner-up
honors for the second straight year.
Outside the Conference, Michigan
lost to Army and Navy, but no one
expected anything else. In fact, Cris-
ler's youngsters gained rather than
lost prestige in holding Army to a 28-
7 score. That achievement loomed
larger each week as the fabulous Ca-
dets steam-rollered over other oppo-
sition with child-like ease.
Minnesota, OSU Downed
Those three defeats, to the elevens
ranked one-two-three in the nation,
were not so hard to take when the
seven victims of Michigan's might
were considered.'
Especially prized were a thumping
26-0 triumph over Minnesota in the
traditional "Little Brown Jug" clash
and a hard-won 7-3 decision over
Ohio State, another historic rival, to
close the season.
In addition, the Wolverines hum-
bled Great Lakes, Michigan State,
Northwestern, Illinois, and Purdue to
round out a season that can be de-
scribed only as "highly successful."

American Prosecution Uncovers
Details of Hiter's Preparations,

Account Constructed
From Nazi Writings
By The Associated Press
NUERNBERG, Germany, Nov. 26-
The American prosecution, seeking to
establish coldblooded Nazi premedi-
tation of aggressive war, today laid
bare at the International War Crimes
Trial the black story of Nazi plotting
from the rape of Austria to the Hit-
ler-approved Japanese attack on the
United States.
The detailed account, constructed
from the written words of the Nazis
themselves, revealed that Hitler had
planned to assassinate the German
ambassador to Prague, if necessary,
to justify his attack on Czechoslo-
vakia. It disclosed that he had de-
liberately planned to starve millions
of Russians to get food for the Wehr-

Bus Tragedy7
Sends 16 to
Watery Death
CHELAN, Wash., Nov. 26- (P) -,
Fifteen school children, ranging from
six to 18 years old, and a bus driver
were drowned early today when a
school bus hit a rock and dived over
a 50-foot embankment into Lake
Chelan during a blinding snow storm.
The accident occurred about nine
miles north of here.
Ted Brown said -his wife, Glenna,
37, and five children saved them-
selves after she broke a window and
they scrambled ashore. Jack Randle,
38, the bus driver and 15 children
were lost.

Will Be Made
Meeting of Deans
To Settle Question
A four day extension of the Christ-
mas vacation for all students, V-12's
included, will be discussed and de-
cided upon at a meeting of the Uni-
versity Deans at 10 a.m. tomorrow, it
was learned yesterday.
This action on the President's part
followed negotiations with the Uni-
versity begun by various campus or-
ganizations, including Veterans Or-
A committee representing the
Veterans Organization asked that
the vacation be from Dec. 21 to
Jan. 2, rather than ending Dec. 27
as now scheduled.
Residents of University dorms,
league houses, fraternities and sorori-
ties, cooperative houses, and practi-
cally every organized level of campus
society are preparing petitions which
they will circulate and present to the
administration as an indication of
their position on this matter.
It has also been reported that
some sort of mass student action
will be forthcoming tomorrow
morning. This will take the form, it
is rumored, of a student parade be-
fore the Dean's meeting.
The veterans presented reasons to
Dr. Alexander Ruthven yesterday fa-
voring such action.
"There are 2,000 veterans on
campus, many of whom are look-
ing forward to their first Christ-
mas at home since joining the
service," Bill Akers, president of
V. O. said.
"Many of these veterans came to
the University on terminal leaves
preceding discharge and have not had
sufficient time at their homes,"
Akers continued. "Under the present
schedule for vacation only those liv-
ing in the immediate vicinity would
be able to have more than Christmas
day home," he said.
"The war is over and we veterans
feel the University, can give us the
four extra days vacation without dis-
rupting the semester schedule too
much," Akers added.
Other campuses, formerly also run-
ning on a three semester basis, have
arranged their programs to give their
students an extended vacation over
New Years. A few of these also have
large V-12 complements.
