School Organizes
Governing Body
Business Administration Students Set up
Committee To Coordinate Activities
Student government received new impetus in the School of Business
Administration yesterday with the setting-up of a student organization
headed by a committee to coordinate general activities.
Last year a more or less informal organization existed, but during sev-
eral of the war years there has none at all because most of the students
were naval trainees. Now that civilians again comprise a majority of the
more than 300 students, plans for a new, representative organization are
Wunder way.

Once in a
Blue Moon
Students were left in the dark
from approximately 8:30 to 10
p.m. yesterday by a total eclipse
of the moon.
The phenomenon marked the
first total eclipse visible--or not
visible-in the United States since
Aug. 26, 1942.

UAW Rejects
New Increase
Offered by Ford
ByThe Associated Press
DETROIT, Dec.. 18 - The CIO
United Automobile Workers today re-
jected a 12.4 per cent wage rate in-
crease offer by the Ford Motor Co.
The rejection came less than an
hour after the Ford Company an-
nounced the offer while representa-
tives of management and union were
meeting on the UAW-CIO demand
for a 30 per cent wage rate increase.
Hourly Wage Increase
Ford estimated its increase offer
at 15 cents an hour to all production
workers. The GM offer was esti-
mated by the management to amount
to,131/2 cents an hour.
Tbe Ford offer and its rejection
brought no immediate comment from
General Motors officials. Most of
them were en route tonight to Wash-
ington for the opening of hearings
tomorrow by a fact-finding commis-
sion appointed by President Truman
to study the GM dispute.
Ford Sets Conditions
The Ford offer was coupled with a
condition that it become effective for
a period of two years at the begin-
ning of the calendar month during
which production of all Ford vehicles,
cars and trucks reached or exceeded
80,000 units monthly. The Ford nor-
mal peacetime output is in excess of
120,000 units a month.
The proposal also stipulated elimi-
nation ofunauthorized work stop-
pages, an agreement regarding man-
agement prerogatives, and a reduc-
tion in the number of union com-
mitteemen. It also included a new
"company security", plan, providing
penalties against individual workers
and the union for unauthorized work

Judges Heckle
At Nazi Trial
By The Associated Press
NUERNBERG, Dec. 18-Openly ir-
ritated judges on the international
military tribunal heckled American
prosecutors today over the abun-
dance of documentary evidence, and
cast doubts on parts of the United
States case against lower-level Nazi
groups which the prosecution seeks
to convict along with the 21 top Nazi

party leadership corps.
Evidence Termed Cumulative
As assistant U. S. prosecutor Rob-
ert G. Storey took up the case against
the Nazi cabinet, Lord Justice Geof-
frey Lawrence, presiding, complained
that the bulk of the evidence Col.
Storey offered was cumulative.
When Col. Storey started reading
a list of those who participated in
Nazi cabinet defense council meet-
ings, Justice Francis J. Biddle in-
quired caustically: "What will that
The prosecution said it would show
the roles of the accused in issuing de-
crees. Biddle queried again: "And
what will that show?"
Legal Problem
The present phase of the trial-
that of presenting evidence against
the principal Nazi organizations-
has been one of the hottest legal
problems of the trial, with the Ameri-
cans standing alone in an effort to
punish a half-million or more Nazi
underlings for their part in the vast
party program of persecution and ex-

Regents' Plan Calls
For Four Additions
A $6,500,000 emergency building
program requested by the University
Board of Regents will be submitted
to the state legislature next month,
Gov. Kelly announced yesterday in
The Regents' request for urgently
needed building construction was
forwarded to the Governor on Dec. 4
by President Alexander G. Ruthven,
who accompanied the request with a
letter stating:
"Lack of classroom space and
adequate laboratory facilities is
seriously handicapping the Univer-
sity in its effort to give the return-
ing veteran the education op
portunity he has a right to expect."
The Regents' program calls for
construction of the following build-
ings :
Business administration building,
$1,800,000; engineering building ad-
dition, $1,750,000; chemistry building
addition, $1,250,000; and maternity
hospital, $900,000.
The Regents also requested $400,-
000 to meet increased construction
costs for the general service building,
approved last spring, and $450,000
for extension of service connections
to the proposed new buildings.
Marvin L. Niehuss, University
vice-president said yesterday that
the four proposed buildings are
necessary to "remedy cumulative
deficiencies in accommodating a
pre-war enrollment of 13,000."
He described the four proposed
buildings as those most urgently
needed within the next two years,
when a peak enrollment of 15,000 is
President Ruthven's letter to the
Governor disclosed. that 2,100 vet-
erans are now enrolled in the Uni-

ficiencies in the present building sit-
uation for which relief has been re-
1. Tappan Hall, which houses the
School of Business Administration,
was built in 1894 for an entirely dif-
ferent purpose. The adequate class-
room, laboratory and, library space
to be provided in the new building
are urgently needed.
2. Faced with increasing demands
for engineering training by veterans
and other students, the College of
Engineering must have a building ad-
dition in order to alleviate crowded
conditions and to provide courses sat-
isfactory to the accrediting organiza-
tions of the profession.
3. The chemistry building' addi-
tion is necessary to overcome
crowded conditions and to provide
adequate training for those who
plan to specialize in. chemistry or
who need it as a basis for further
training in engineering, medicine,
dentistry or public health.
4. The medical school needs a ma-
ternity hospital in order to provide
adequate facilities for clinical teach-
ing in obstetrics.
The Regents' request for $6,500,000
of building construction is part of a
$15,000,000 program which the Uni-
versity hopes to complete within five
years. Other buildings to be con-
structed include:
Additions to Angell Hall and the
General Library; a new medical
classroom building near University
Hospital, releasing the present East
Medical Building for use by the
College of Engineering; a School of
Music building; an astronomical

observatory and laboratory; an ar-
mory for Army and Navy units and
a wind tunnel and engineering re-
search laboratory.
The Regents pointed out that ap-
propriations for additions to the Uni-
versity's building facilites have
lagged behind those of other state
universities. Between 1925 and 1945
the University received $4,465,00 for
new construction. In the same years
the state universities of Illinois, Iowa,
Ohio, Minnesota and Wisconsin each
received an average of $13,831,084.

Intercepted Radio
Message December 6


'WASHINGTON, Dec. 18 - (P) -
Testimony that the Japanese learned
on Dec. 6, 1941 through intercepted
U. S. radio messages what warships
were at Pearl Harbor was laid before
the Congressional investigating com-
mittee today.
This information came from Gen-
eral Douglas MacArthur's staff in
Tokyo, along with word that:
1. The enemy had alternate plans
to smash the U. S. fleet if it was an-
chored outside the harbor.
2. Orders went to the Japanese
Navy to prepare for the attack as
early as Nov. 9; assuming war with
Britain, the United States and The
Netherlands was "inevitable."
May Have Cracked Code
Whether the Japanese actually had
cracked a U. S. radio code as theirs
had been cracked was not made clear.
The joint Senate-House commit-
tee received at the same time memo-
randa of Sumner Welles, former un-
dersecretary of state, describing the
Roosevelt-Churchill meeting at sea
when the Atlantic charter was drawn
in August, 1941. Welles revealed
