'U' Graduate Dies
Frank A. Stivers, president of the
Hoover Ball & Bearing Co. died in
St. Joseph's Hospital Thursday night
following a lengthy illness.
Stivers, who received his LLB de-
gree from the University in 1897, was
78 years old.
the company has offered a 13%/2 cents
an. hogr increase and the union has
asserted it will not accept less than
191/2 cents-was not discussed today,
the mVdiator said.
"The company," said Dewey, "is
taking the position that other mat-
ters of controversy ought to be taken
up before wages." The "other mat-
ters"involve a sharp difference re-
garding a maintenance-of-member-
ship clause in the new contract, job
transfers and activities of union stew-
ards. The company wants no union
membership maintenance stipulation
in the contract and the UAW-CIO
has insisted upon its inclusion.
Dewey reported he noted a "better
feeling between the parties," at to-
day's conferences. The two earlier
essions reportedly had witnessed
sharp exchanges between the nego-
tiators, with both sides represented as
presenting a "tough" attitude on the
issues in dispute.
Absent from today's meeting was R.
J. Thomas, UAW-CIO president, at
the conclusion of yesterday's session
Thomas announcedhewould not re-
join the conferees "until there is
some indicatidh that GM wants to
settle tie strike."
There was no statement from Gen-
eral Motors, whose president, C. E.,
Wilson, thus far has remained away
frcm the negotiations.
In Washington today Reconversion
Director John W. Snyder disclosed
that he had told Henry Ford II, presi-
dent of the Ford Motor Co., that
abandonment of price control now
would retard industrial development
"for years to come."
Ford. in a telegram this week had
suggested to Snyder that price con-
trols on automobile manufacturers
and their suppliers be removed.
Snyder wired Ford that price ceil-
ings had been established on the
basis of 1941 production volume and
"If on that basis your ceilings prove
inadequate, you will be entitled to an
'dju tment of your ceiling, prices."
To, avoid "the national disaster of
inflation," Snyder said, the adminis-
tration would need cooperation of
management, labor and the public "in
maintaining price controls and in
making them work."
To Get Books
Teaghers from -the Ann Arbor grade
schools, in an endeavor to alleviate
the shortage of books in the Philip-
pines, are seeking contributions of
discarded library and school books
from their pupils.
The search has been prompted as a
result of a speech made before a
group of grade school teachers by
Major Fred Castro, who attended
J.A.G. school at the University and
who has recently returned from the
Philippines. Major Castro revealed to
the teachers the general dearth of
books and stated that history and
story books for boys, girls and adults
would be appreciated. Contributions
to date include a great surplus of
arithmetic books, which, while they
will be used, will not be able to be-
come part of the children's library
that they hope to start.
The books will be shipped in about
a month to the Manila YW.C.A. Ann
Arbor school children are urged to
bring in contributions to their teach-
Army Families Will Be .
Allowed To Go Overseas.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 1-(/P)-The
War Department announced tonight
that dependents of all ranks of Army
personnel will be permitted to join
them overseas, contingent upon the
necessary housing, food and medical
care being available for them.
Italy is a long way from home
when you're th youngest member of
any USO troop that has gone over-
seas and when some of your shows
are given within 2,000 yards of ac-
The University is also a long way
from home for Rosemary Myers, 20,
a former overseas USO entertainer,
who is enrolled as a sophomore in
the literary college.
It was in Hollywood, near her
California home, that she was
asked to join a Mediterranean-
bound USO troop. After spending
three months in New York, enter-
taining in New York and New Jer-
sey camps, the group with Rose-
-ary included, complete with reg-
ulation Armyinoculations and ex-
aminations, left for Africa, Sicily
and Italy in the spring of 1944.
After touring various places ina
Africa, such as Casablanca, French
Morocco. Tunisia and Bizerte, the
troupe went to Sicily, and from there
to Rome two days after the Germans
had deserted the town.
She sang at the Anzio beachhead
when it was still a beachhead.
Following the Fifth Army 100
miles by jeep, the girls played to
members of the 12th and 15th
Army Air Forces from the backs
of trucks or in outdoor theatres.
The troop averaged two one-hour
shows a day, and the only vacation
they had, she said, was a week on
the Isle of Capri, and "that was
"'A Bell for Adano' ", she remark-
ed, 'is an excellent portrayal of the
Italian people. It truthfully repre-
sents their attitude and action dur-
ing the war."
While overseas, and even while she
was touring eastern camps, the
troupe was under Army protection
and Army regulations, she explained.
Since she has come to the Uni-
versity, she said that several vet-
erans here have told her they
heard her sing %in Italy or Sicily.
Many of them remembered her as
a pin-up girl they had chosen.
Her brother, Terrell, is also at the
University, working for his PhD. de-
gree in organic chemistry. Accord-
ing to Rosemary, that is her princi-
pal reason for coming all the way
from Whittier, Calif. to attend
