Sextet Repeats over Minnesota, 9-4;
Basketball Squad Spills Wildcats, 56-37




Jumping off to a four-goal lead in
the first period, Michigan's hockey
team easily defeated Minnesota, 9-4,
last night at the Coliseum to give the
Wolverines their second victory over
the Gophers this season and run their
winning streak to 11 games.
Michigan's fast-skating forwards
and hard-checking defensemen
proved too much for the Gophers as
the Wolverines completely dominated
the play in the first two periods,
scoring four goals in both stanzas,
and then coasted to victory in the
final frame. Minnesota scored three
goals in the third period but could
not make up the deficit.
Marshall Goal Spectacular
Wlly Grant, Wally Gacek, and Bob
Marshall all tallied twice for the
Maize and Blue. Al Renfrew, Bill
Jacobson, and Gord MacMillan were
the other Michigan scorers. Bob Car-
ley, Cal Engelstad, Pat Finnegan, and
Jack O'Brien each countered for
Bob Marshall, defenseman, played
an outstanding game for the Wol-
verines both offensively and defen-
sively and marked up his first two
goals of the season. Marshall's first
goal was the most spectacular seen
on the Coliseum ice this season and
came whilenMichigan was playing
with tvo men short.
Gacek Line Stars
Bob Arnot shoved a pass to the big
defenseman, and Marshall roared
past four Gophers and in on goalie
Duff McDermid, who was beaten with
a hard shot to the corner.
The Gacek line, with Gacek at cen-
ter and Grant and Neil Celley on the
wings, also performed in great fash-
ion. At 2:57, Grant took Celley's

China's Civil
War Continues
After Deadline
Truce Teams Unable
To Halt Fighting Men
CHUNGKING, Jan. 19-()-Scat-
tered fighting continued in various
zones of China's Civil War front to-
night, both government and Com-
munist leaders said, six days after
the official deadline for a nation-
wide truce.
Three-member truce teams, each
including an American, a Commun-
ist, and a central government rep-
resentative, moved into additional
areas to halt reported conflicts, but
they were admittedly powerless to
end the fighting if rival Chinese
leaders continued action after being
informed of the truce order from
Walter Robertson, American rep-
resentative on the truce commission,
which includes Gen. Cheng Kai-
Ming for the central government and
Gen. Yeh Chien-ing for the Com-
munists, said, however, that he "and
his associates had agreed on "three
principles which will put teeth into
the orders truce teams wil give op-
posing commanders."
The nature of the three principles
was not disclosed.
A high official of the National Mil-
itary Council said that Communists
wre operating in force from the
heart of Inner Mongolia to points
near the lower reaches of the Yang-
tze River and were seeking to estab-
lish a corridor from the Lower
Yangtze to Jehol.
Communist quarters in Chungking
countered the government charges
with assertions that government
forces were conducting mopping-up
operations around the Honan pro-
vince highway center of Kwangshan
and were "attacking vigorously" the
railroad town of Yuncheng in south-

western Honan, to which a truce
team has been assigned.
Trucks To Collect

City trucks will pick up bundles of

Michigan's on-again off-again
basketball team was on last night at
Yost Field House, defeating North-
western 56-37 and gaining revenge
over the Wildcats, who had beaten it
by the same 19-point margin last
Saturday in Evanston.
The alert Wolverine defense kept
the vaunted Northwestern offense in
check throughout the game. Sparkling
play by Guards Pete Elliott and Dave
Strack limited Wildcat Max Morris,
who last week scored 20 points, to
one field goal and three foul shots.
Selbo Outstanding
Glenn Selbo played a brilliant game
under the Wildcat backboard and
held Leroy King, giant center, to four
field goals. Both teams constantly
broke up the opponents' passing game
by intercepting passes.
After 10 minutes of play, the Wol-
verines took the lead for the fifth time
on a field goal by Elliott, and were
never headed from then on. The half
time score was 28-19.
Regulars Removed at End
In the fina minutes, Coach Bennie
Oosterbaan removed all of his regu-
lars from the game. They received
a tremendous ovation from the three-
quarters filled Field House.
Dave Strack was the big gun on
Michigan's offense with 14 points on
six shots from the field andtwo from
the foul line. Elliot was close behind
with 13 points on the same number
of field goals and one foul shot. Selbo
was third with 10 point. Leroy King
and Buzz Wheeler were high scorers
for the losers with nine points apiece.
Michigan Lead Short
Michigan drew first tblood on a free
throw by Selbo, but the lead was
short-lived as Chuck Lindgren count-
ered with a field goal. Morris made a

Kaiser Signs
Contract with
His Employes
By The Associated Press
More than 55,000 steel workers
were off their jobs at a few scattered
mills yesterday in anticipation of the
scheduled strike at midnight tonight
of 750,000 CIO United Steel Workers.
Thousands of others also became
idle as steel operations of 1,292 om-
panies in 30 states gradually halted.
The mammoth strike grew out of a
31/2 cents an hour difference between.
the 15 cents offered by the United
States Steel Corporation, industry
bellwether, and the 18%/ cents sought

16-Day Strike
NEW- YORK, Jan. 19-Frank J.
Fitzsimmons, President of the strik-
ing independent Western Electric
Employes Association, offered today
to settle the 16-day-old walkout of
17,000 workers in the metropolitan
area for a 171/ per cent wage in-
Fitzsimmons sent telegrams to
President Truman, Labor Secretary
Schwellenbach, U. S. Conciliator J.
R. Mandelbaum, and the Western
Electric Company sayinghis union
would settle the wage dispute "pro-
vided the Western Electric Company
increases its present offer of 15 per
cent to 171/2 per cent."
The union originally asked a 30 per
cent increase.
Mayer quoted Fitzsimmons as say-
ing the "President of the United
States has indicated that labor
should settle its wage demands for
171/2 per cent, based on the results of
the fact-finding board."
"We are prepared in the public in-
terest to comply with the President's
request, and we know that every other
labor union will do likewise," the un-
ion president was quoted as saying.
"It is apparent that the great fi-
nancial interests which are behind
such enterprises as General Motors,
United States Steel and American
Telephone and Telegraph Company,
parent company of Western Electric,
are resisting efforts to bring about
industrial peace.

NEA Educators


Favor Aid to vet Solar ObservationsMade

Group States Colleges
Have Needed Facilities1
CLEVELAND, Jan. 19-Some 300
educators of the National Education
Association concluded a three-day
conference today by adopting a con-
stitution dedicated to aid ex-service-
men "so that both they and the coun-
try may be helped to readjust to
peacetime living."
Among resolutions adopted was
that of a panel on college terminal
programs declaring: "Despite over-
crowding reported in approximate-
ly 100 of the nationally known uni-
versities, by a full use of their fa-
cilities the 1,700 colleges of the
country will be able to admit all
veterans who want to enroll." ,
Alonzo G. Grace, Commissioner
of Education of Connecticut, listed
establishment of federal G.I. uni-
versities as one of several alterna-
tives which might result if the pres-
ent education system failed to meet
needs of returning servicemen, but
the Connecticut official declared
there was "no threat, or even likeli-
hood" of the formation of such na-
tionalized vets' colleges.
Dr. Ernest V. Hollis, specialist of
the U. S. Office of Education, told
delegates colleges should be prepared
to offer short vocational programs
for ex-servicemen and to find posi-
tions for veterans after completion of
such courses.
Regional vice-presidents named by
the Council included Loy Norrix of
Kalamazoo, Mich.

Former Michigan students plan-
ning to re-enroll in the spring term
are urged by University officials to
file applications immediately.
Although the new admissions pol-a
icy limits enrollment to residents of
Michigan, former out-of-state stu-
dents who left in good standing will
be admitted. They must file applica-
tion promptly if they expect to find
housing accommodations, officials
Out-of-state students now enrolled
in the University are not affected by
the new policy.
No reply to the University's re-
quest for eight FPHA dormitories has
yet been received, it was disclosed.
An answer had been expected from
the FPHA regional office in Cleve-
land yesterday.

For U.S. Armed Services

Observations of the sun made at.
the University's McMath-Hulbert Ob-
servatory on Lake Angelus contribute
to the semi-weekly short wave radio
reception predictions prepared at
Washington for the armed forces.
Reports Made to Washington
Reports on solar observations have
been made to Washington since early
in 1942, according to Dr. Robert R.
McMath, director of the observatory.
Information in them is analyzed and
correlated with other data in order to
enable radio experts to attempt to
predict short wave reception several
days in advance.
The forecasts were developed to aid
wartime comunication. Their value
proved so great that the service is now
continued. Reception predictions are
prepared by the Interservices Radio
Propagation Laboratory.
Prof. Mohler Is Director
The solar observations at the ob-
servatory are under the direction of
Prof. Orren C. Mohler, assisted by
John Brodie. Their findings on the

Delay l-Passage
WASHINGTON, Jan. 19, (1P-The
United States Senate faces the dreary
prospect of doing nothing next week,
and staying at it seven hours a day.
A Southern filibuster against a bill
to establish a permanent Fair Em-
ployment Practice Commission has
the lawmakers marking time in a leg-
islative dead-end street.
The Republican minority, most of
whom .favor the anti-discrimination
bill, decided at a meeting today to
insist that the Senate stay in session
next week until at least 6 o'clock.
A Democratic spokesman said the
majority would move to meet at 11
a.m., instead of the customary noon
Senator Wayne Morse (R.-Ore.) in-
sists that there should be continuous
sessions until the filibuster is groken.
He proposes 24-hour instead of seven-
hour meetings.

Climaxing his long personal battle
with James C. Petrillo, Dr. Joseph E.
Maddy, professor of radio music edu-
cation received word last night that
he had been expelled from the Ameri-
can Federation of Musicians after a
private hearing by the national execu-
tive board of that union last Tuesday
in Chicago.
The negative verdict, though expec-
ted by Dr. Maddy, was supposed to
have been given by the executive body
on Wednesday. The news was tele-
phoned to Dr. Maddy by the Chicago
Daily Tribune at the close of the
American Association of Broadcasters
hearing yesterday. Calls from the Chi-
cago Daily News and Time magazine
followed immediately.
Dr. Maddy was represented by Birk
and Birk, University attorneys, at the
trial. Carl Schafer of the Richmond,
Ind., AFM local also testified in his
Commenting on the noticeable ab-
sence of Petrillo, AFM president, I'r.
Maddy said that though the music
czar was there for all other meetings
he was "probably just in the next
room during my private hearing." It
is enough for you to know that Mr.
Petrillo is not here," the executive
board told Dr. Maddy
Dr. Maddy, founder and director
of the National Music-Camp, said,
"After 37 years of membership in
good standing I have been expelled
from the AFM for the innocent
crime of teaching music to chil-
dren at Interlochen."
He was summoned before the board
to face charges that he taught at the
camp last summer after it was placed
on the union's unfair list.
Dr. Maddy taught at the camp
last summer despite the ban which
forced the oganization to recruit
non-union musicians as teachers.
A majority of the 1945 teachers
were college music professors.
He declared in a formal statement:
"In the interests of music educa-
tion of children I have fought Pe-
trillo and all he stands for so that I
can hardly say the verdict of his ex-
ecutive board was unexpected.
"Two months before the National
Music Camp was placed on the
AFM unfair list and members or-
dered not to teach there, Mr. Pe-
trillo was quoted in a press asso-
ciation dispatch as saying, "We
don't stop anybody from giving
"This point yas brought up at the
hearing and was not contradicted
or denied, so it is quite apparent
that Petrillo's intrusion into the
field of musical education is novel
and solely for the purpose of prese-
cuting me.
"The unfair ruling and my ex-
pulsion from the union are both re-
prisals against me personally for
daring to dispute Petrillo's right to
control broadcasting and musical
education of the children of Amer-
"In spite of Petrillo's efforts to
obstruct the development of youth-
ful musical talent, the National
Music Camp and other school or-
ganizations of the country will con-
tinue to fight any and all edicts
that would interfere with the rights
of educators to teach and of chil-
dren to learn music."
Ousted from the union, the direc-
tor of Interlochen has two opportuni-
ties: 1) To appeal to the floor of the
AFM convention in June 2) To ask
for a rehearing. It is not probable
that he will consider either possibil-
ity, Dr. Maddy said.
