Citizens Oppose
Hyde Park As
Home of UNO
Fear of Higher Taxes
Causes Apprehension;
By The Associated Press
POUGHKEEPSIE, N. Y., Jan. 7-
The late President Roosevelt's neigh-
bors ran into a note of discord today
in their efforts to make Hyde Park's
rolling acres the permanent home of
th'e United Nations organization.
With UNO's Site Committee al-
ready In the United States for in-
spection tours, State Senator Fred-
eric Bontecou said he had talked to
"a great number" of Dutchess County
citizens and "all of them are opposed
to having it (UNO) in the county."
Bontecou, Dutchess County Repub-
lican Chairman, demanded in a
statement that the County Board of
Supervisors order a referendum to
give Dutchess citizens an opportunity
to decide for themselves.
However, Leonard J. Supple, chair-
man of the board, said he knew of
no way immediately by which such a
referendum could be held.
Efforts To Halt
Western Union
Wallout Fail
NEW YORK, Jan. 7 -(/P)- Mayor
William O'Dwyer said tonight his
last-minute efforts to forestall a
threatened walkout of 7,000 Western
Union employes in New York and
New Jersey had failed and the strike
would go on as scheduled tomorrow
at 11 a.m.
O'Dwyer said the Union, the CIO
American Communications Associa-
tion, which called the walkout, had
agreed to accept his arbitration pro-
posal, but that the company had re-
fused. He met with union and com-
pany representatives in separate ses-
sions.

The walkout, called by the CIO
American Communications Associa-
tion, is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.
tomorrow and a. company spokesman
said it will halt all but the most vital
"life or death" messages in and out of
the city. Supervisory personnel will
handle such messages.
company spokesman said, it will halt
all but the most vital "life or death"
messages in and out of the city. Su-
pervisory personnel will handle such
messages.
Transoceanic communications also
may be affected. Representatives of
local unions of five international ca-
ble companies were to meet tonight to
decide whether they would handle
"struck" copy.
If they vote against handling such,
copy, Joseph P. Selly, ACA president,
said 40 per cent of the flow of cables
-both incoming and outgoing-
would be shut off. The decision would
affect New York City and San Fran-
cisco.
The AFL Commercial Telegraphers
Union, however, already has voted to
ignore the CIO walkout.

To Request Transfer of Unts
Accommnodating 1,000 Vets
Prospects for easing the University's critical housing shortage bright-
ened last night when it was announced that the University will apply to
the Federal Public Housing Authority in Cleveland tomorrow for transfer
of eight temporary dormitory units to Ann Arbor to house 1,000 veterans.
If the University's request is granted, transfer will start immediately
and the units will be ready for veterans' occupancy at the beginning of the
spring semester.
The buildings sought are two-story frame structures with stucco ex-
teriors. Each dormitory will have two wings and a central heating plant
and toilet facilities. Rooms are approximately 12 feet square and will house
two students each.
Units To Be Scattered
Six of the units will be located just outside the city limits on South
Ferry Field and its addition. The other two units will be erected on the
University Hospital grounds. A cafe-T

CHINA SCENE AS MARSHALL MEETS WITH FACTIONS - General
Marshall reported progress today after a three-hour meeting with
Government and Communist leaders in Chunking, which will be con-
tinued tomorrow. Lt.-Gen. Albert C. Wedemeyer said U. S. Navy ships
would begin moving 26,000 Nationalist troops (arrows and symbols) to
Manchuria within 10 days. A semi-official dispatch reported the first
Government troops entered Mukden (3) Saturday, and that 10 more
planeloads of troops had arrived at Changchun (2), Manchuria's cap-
capital, from Peiping.
Yanks Demand Investigation
Of Demobilization Slowdown

By The Associated Press
MANILA, Jan. 7- A mass meeting
of more than 12,000 American en-
listed soldiers tonight noisily adopted
a resolution demanding a Congres-
sional investigation of the new de-
mobilization slowdown.
To an accompaniment of boos, T/4
Harold Schiffrin of Rochester, N.Y..
read a statement which he and a
committee of four others obtained
during the day from Gen. W. D. Styer,
commanding Army forces in the
Western Pacific, after a crowd of 3,-
000 had marched on Styer's head-
quarters this morning.
Job Discussion
To Open Today
Speakers ro Review
Employment Outlook
With Lieut.-Gov. Vernon J. Brown
and George W. Romney as speakers,
the Guidance and Placement Confer-
ence will open its discussions on "The
Job World Today and Tomorroy" at
7:45 p.m. today in the Rackham Lec-
ture Hall.
Drawing on his experience with vet-
erans work in this state, Lieut.-Gov.
Brown will outline "Michigan's Pro-
gram for Veterans." Romney, gen-
eral manager of the Automobile Man=
ufacturers' Association, will discuss
the opportunities in business and in-
dustry likely to be made available
to students as a result of reconversion.
President Alexander G. Ruthven
will preside over the conference,
which is sponsored by the University
Bureau of Appointments and Occu-
pational Information.

Styer denied G.I. contentions that
War Department promises on de-
mobilization had been broken by the
new slowdown which spread over a
six-month period the number of men
previouslyhscheduled to be returned
home in three.
Speaking to the committee, Styer
said the "changing international sit-
uation" had made it impossible to
send home all eligible men immedi-
ately. He vainly urged cancellation
of tonight's mass meeting on 'the
grounds that it would have a bad
effect on Filipinos and that "hot-
heads" might start trouble and
"somebody will get hurt."
Demand Investigation
Styer declined to address tonight's
noisy but p.eaceable session. He in-
formed the G.I. spokesmen that Sec-
retary of War Patterson; now in Ja-
pan on a world tour, had decided not
to come to the Philippines as ex-
pected.
The protesting enlisted men ex-
pressed disappointment but quickly
and thunderously adopted a resolu-
tion demanding a Congressional in-
vestigation of the whole mobilization
and redeployment program.
Maritne Disclarge
Score Will Be Cut
WASHINGTON, Jan, '7 --(P)-- The
Marine Corps announced today its
critical discharge score for all of-
ficers and men would be cut from 50
to 45, effective Feb. 1.
About 28,000 additional persons will
be made eligible for release by the
reduction, the service estimated.
There was no change in the critical
score for women Marines, reduced
to 18 on Jan. 1.

teria may be erected for the Ferry
Field group.
University Vice-President Robert
Briggs has explained that all space in
the dormitories will be assigned to
male veterans. He predicted a veter-
an enrollment at the University of
approximately 4,500 students for the
spring term. He further pointed out
that it is possible that the total will
reach 7,500 in September. The pres-
ent enrollment is 2,133.
Common Council Aids Move
The Ann Arbor Common Council.
last night cleared the way for the re-
quest to the FPHA by granting the
University permission to tie plumb-
ing from the dormitories into the
city water mains and sewer lines to
move knocked-down units over Ann
Arbor streets.
In the letter asking this permission
Mr. Briggs said that the units will
be removed after June, 1948. The
height of the housing need, he said,
is expected during the next fall se-
mester.
So far, the University has accepted
every qualified veteran who has ap-
plied for admission. It is believed
that use of the temporary dormitor-
ies will enable the continuation of
this policy through the spring term.
Law Would Jail
Young Imbibers
An amendment to the city ordin-
ance on sale of liquor, which would
make misrepresentation of age by a
minor in order to buy alcoholic bev-
erages a misdemeanor, was put before
the Ann Arbor Common Council last
night by Alderman William Saunders.
If the ruling is passed, minors who
commit the misdemeanor would be
subject to a $100 fine or thirty days
in jail. At present minors are not
punishable for such misrepresenta-
tion. However, licenses of taverns
found selling liquor to minors are
usually suspended for 15 to 30 days,
even if the minor's credentials make
him appear to be more than 21 years
old.
The Common Council also received
a report from the chief of police that
59 taxi licenses are now registered.
Of these, eight have been issued to
veterans. The survey which is being
conducted on local cab facilities is
still going on,
Vets Needed As Advisers
Veterans are especially needed
to serve as orientation advisers for
the spring term. Men of all the
schools are eligible and should
contact Charles Helmick from 3
to 5 p.m. any day in the Student
Offices of the Union for addition-
al information.

Liberal Action
Committee Laws
To Be Debated
More Adequate Self-
Government Is Aim
A discussion of a constitution for
student government on 'the Univer-
sity campus will be open to all stu-
dents at the Committee for Liberal
Action meeting at 7:30 p.m. tomor-
row in Rm. 302, the Union.
This constitution, drafted from
four proposed prograis, will be rati-
fied at a meeting of 30 campus or-
ganizatio4s tomorrow afternoon.
Formulated as a result of the demand
for the reinstitution of more ade-
quate student-self-government, the
constitution will be presented to the
committee for possible adoption.
As the program for a revived stu-
dent government is developing rap-
idly, the Committee will now divert
its activities to work on state and
local, as well as national and interna-
tional problems of importance. In
addition to these committees, pub-
licity, program and student govern-
ment committees will be appointed at
the meeting.

AN OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE:
Puppet Government Official Not Collaborator - Fernandez

"The mere fact that a man occu-
pied a place in the Philippine govern-
ment during Jap occupation does not
mean that he was a collaborator,"
Maj. Patricio Fernandez, puppet gov-
ernor of the province of Palawan un-
der the Japanese, said.
MaJ. Fernandez is one of the
four students who have just come
to the University from the liberated
Philippines and who told some of
their outstanding experiences dur-
ing Jap occupation at the Philip-

jail if any of them went to the moun-
tains.
Exhibiting notes of thanks from
many American prisoners of war,
Maj. Fernandez said that he had
lent money and smuggled food to
them. Telling how the Japs de-
stroyed the Philippine sugar in-
dustry, from which the government
got 75 per cent of its revenue, he
said that tle Philippines now face
an econoic' crisis.

ita Hilario Soriano, president of the
Philippine-Michigan club.
Life as a student during the Jap
occupation was described by Miss
Lourdes Segundo, daughter of Gen.
Fidel V. Segundo of the Philippine
Army. As soon as the Jape were
established on Luzon, she said, they
encouraged the opening of a few
schools to create the appearance of
normalcy.
The colleges of engineering, phar-
illacy. dentistry, agriculture and

take required exercises (called radio
taiso) many times a day.
The Japs wired off one quarter of
the campus to form the Los Banos
prison camp. All the male students
were shut up in a room in the
chemistry building for several days,
and no food was allowed to reach
them until some of the guerilla
fighters among them gave them-
selves up and were transferred to
a torture chamber, Miss Segundo
said. The Jan stook over 15 of the
