Criticism of 'U'

on Housing Denied

Michigan's 1945-46 basketball
squad, shooting for its second win of
the season, will meet Michigan State
at 7:30 p.m. tonight in Yost Field
Head Coach Bennie Oosterbaan,
Wolverine cage tutor, failed to an-
nounce his starting team, but named
seven candidates from which the var-
sity would be picked.
Feinberg or Harrison at Pivot
Either Marty Feinberg or Bob Har-
rison will step into the center berth
tonight, accordingto Barclay. Harri-
son also doubles at forward, and may
possibly be seen at that spot.
Glen Selbo, Dave Strack, and Bill
Walton make up the roster of for-
ward candidates. Selbo scored 14
points in the tilt with Central Michi-
gan earlier this season, while Strack
and Walton garnered seven and four
points, respectively, against the Chip-
Lettermen at Guards
Top men on the list of guard.hope-
fuls are Walt Kell and John Mul-
laney, both lettermen from last sea-
son's squad. Kell and Mullaney han-
dled first string assignments on the
'44 crew and are well acquainted with
the Michigan system of play.
Facing the Wolverines tonite will
be a team composed entirely of letter-
winners, all of whom have had ex-
perience in Spartan varsity basket-
Vincent Sheean
Listed as Third
Series Speaker
The third speaker in the Oratorical
Lecture series, appearing Wednesday
at Hill Auditorium, will be Vincent
Sheean, war correspondent, author
and lecturer.
Sheean, author of "Not Peace But
a Sword" and "Personal History," has
chosen as his topic "Personal Opin-
ions." He has recently returned from
Europe, where he spent five months
with General Patton's Third Army.
One of Sheean's first assignments
after he graduated from the Univer-
sity of Chicago was the Arab-Jewish
hostilities in Jerusalem in 1928. Other
events he observed in his early years
were the occupation of the Ruhr, the
Lausanne conference, the Fascist
march on Rome and the overthrow
of the monarchists in Spain.
After a period of fiction writing,
when he produced "San Felice", "The
Day of Battle" and "Piece of a Fan",
he went to Spain in 1938, then to
Austria and later to Germany, where
he covered the march into the Su-
Richard Wright
Postpones Talk
Richard Wright, Negro author and
lecturer scheduled to speak here on
Dec. 11, has postponed his lecture be-
cause of illness, and Madame Francis
Perkins has agreed to appear here on
that date.
Mr. Wright's lecture will be post-
poned for only a short time. Its new
date will be announced as soon as
possible, the Oratorical Association
said today.
"The Destiny of Labor in America"
will be Miss Perkins' topic. She re-
turned to the United States just two
days ago after attending the Inter-
national Labor Conference in Eng-
land. The season-ticket coupon for
her lecture scheduled for Jan. 16 will
be honored for her lecture on Dec. 11.
The Oratorical Association urges
purchasers of single admission tickets
for the Richard Wright lecture to
keep them until the new date is an-

It will be a battle of youth tonight
when the Wolverine puckmen clash
with the powerful Windsor Spitfires
in the season's opener at the Coli-
Coach Vic Heyliger announced that
he will have three lines and two sets
of defensemen ready for tonight's
encounter. The starting line will be
composed of Gordon MacMillian at
center, with Bill Jacobson and Al
Renfrew at the Wings. On defense
will be Connie Hill and Clem Cos-
salter, and Jack MacInnes tending
the nets. Hill will be acting captain
for tonight's contest.
Second Line Set
A second line of Wally Gacek, Neil
Celley and Walt Grant will alternate
with the starting combination. Coach
Heyliger rates both lines equally
strong. The Wolverines will also send

Hagen Urges
Short German
Military Rule
Claims Withdrawal
Will Aid Democracy
Advocating a short military occu-
pation of Germany, Paul Hagen, for-
mer German and Austrian trade un-
ion leader, pointed out in an inter-
view yesterday that only if German
democratic forces are allowed to fight
for their existence, without foreign
protection, can they avoid collapse
when such aid is withdrawn.
Temporary occupation is necessary
to disarm Germany and destroy
conditions conducive to the develop-
ment of democracy. B'ut, he pointed
out, Allied forces should be with-
drawn as soon as possible to permit
the democratic potential in Germany
to come forth spontaneously.
Democratic Leaders Exist
'This potential, according to Hagen,
exists in the willingness of the people
to accept something new and in the
existence of good, local democratic
Discussing the economic aspect of
military occupation in his speech yes-
terday, Hagen stressed the fact that
the three different economic systems
of the occupying powers tend to di-
vide Germany into three separate
economic groups.
In the inteview, Hagen said that
the German labor movement has been
the main group in Germany with
democratic aims for the last 50 or 60
years. For this reason, it must pro-
vide the basis of a democratic Ger-
man government. Two-thirds of Ger-
many's population belong to this la-
bor group.
Socialism Predicted
A democratically controlled social-
ist form of government can be ex-
pected to develop under the leader-
ship of this group, he explained. No
free capitalism will be possible for a
while in Germany, but emergency re-
construction can be carried on in a
socialist way with democratic con-
Hagen also considers the re-estab-
lishment of Germany as a national
economic unit as a prerequisite to the
development of democracy.
Cossacks Will
Sing Monday
Chorus To Present
Selections by Russians
The Don Cossack Chorus, under the
direction of Serge Jaroff, will make its
first appearance on the Choral Un-
ion series since the fall of 1943 at

8:30 p.m. Monday in Hill Auditorium.
Now on its fifteenth American tour,
the Chorus will highlight its concert
with selections by Gretchaninoff,
Ssvedoff, Dobrovein and Tschesnikoff.
The original Don Cossack Chorus
was organized twenty-five years ago
when the Tom Thumb-like Lieut.
Jaroff, sitting around the campfire
with his homesick troops, conceived
the idea of a choir.

Lt. Col. Pack
Meeting withl
Claimed by Akers
William Akers, president of the
Veterans' Organization, and Victor
Baum, president of the local Ameri-
can Veterans' Committee chapter, de-
nied last night that their organiza-
tions had criticized the University's
Veterans' housing policies in conver-
sations with Lt. Col. Philip C. Pack,
director of the State Office of Veter-
ans Affairs.
An Associated Press report earlier
yesterday, which provoked their clari-
fication of their organizations' posi-
tions, stated that Col. Pack would
meet with a delegation of vet-
erans from the University who con-
tend that the University is not pre-
pared for an expected increase of
veteran enrolles next term.
Misunderstanding Reported
Akers explained that any conno-
tation of criticisms by the organiza-
tion in the announcement must have
been the result of misunderstanding
of his conversation with Cl. Pack
Wednesday either by Col. Pack or by
the press service.
"We have arranged a meeting with
Col. Pack to discuss veterans' af-
fairs, including the housing situa-
tion here," Akers said. Delegates of
VO and AVC will meet with Col.
Pack Thursday in Lansing.
Housing Surveys Conducted
Robert P. Briggs, vice-president of
the University, said in a statement to
The Daily last night: "At present we
see no reason for alarm about the
housing situation for next semester."
The Universityhas recently obtained
permission to use 572 housing units at
Willow Run and expects other facili-
ties to be available.
Meanwhile, VO and AVC are con-
ducting surveys of the housing situa-
tion and the cost of living for veter-
ans. VO's aim, according to Secretary
Warren Wayne, is to help provide
sufficient space for veterans who
want to enter the University next

Carr Speaks Before
Sociological Society
EAST LANSING, Nov. 30 - "The
United Nations Organization cannot
be the ultimate answer for a world
now struggling to control the use of
force," Dr. Lowell J. Carr declared
yesterday in a speech before the
Michigan Sociological Society at
Michigan State College.
Speaking on "A Situational Ap-
proach to Conflict and War," Dr.
Carr was one of a number of profes-
sors who addressed the all day meet-
Latest trends in technological ad-
vancement and atomic bomb research
plus the fact that member nations
still retain their sovereignty make it
apparent that the UNO as it now
stands will be ineffective. From a
situational viewpoint, it is also ap-
parent that when the state is in con-
trol, it can only use force to readjust
situations which heighten friction and
tension. By destroying opposing gov-
ernments, Dr. Carr continued, mili-
tary power may bring a new level of
equilibrium among nations, but on a

Stalemate Ends
Labor Session
Truman's Conference
Closes after 25 Days
WASHINGTON, Nov. 30 - (R) -
President Truman's labor-manage-
ment conference adjourned at 6:25
p. m., EST tonight without setting
up the hoped-for machinery to han-
dle postwar labor disputes.

agreement on such major issues as
wages and collective bargaining, but
leaders asserted the meeting attained
"substantial advances toward indus-
trial peace."
The closing session of the 25-day

vise ways and means of curbing in-
dustrial strife, flared in open attacks

Dean Hudnut spoke of the future
