MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 2- Michi-
gan's hockey team, which defeated
Minnesota twice in very decisive
fashion here two weeks ago, found
the Gophers a far different propo-
sition on their home ice here tonight
as it dropped a 5-2 decision to its
Big Ten rivals.
The surprising upset, following on
the heels of last night's 3-3 tie, still
gave the Wolverines an edge in the
four-game series and the mythical
Conference hockey crown. The de-
feat was Michigan's third of the sea-
son, as against 12 victories and one
Minnesota Coach Larry Armstrong
sent a rejuvenated team into battle
for tonight's contest, and the Goph-
ers displayed a superb brand of
hockey. Defensively, the Northmen
were invincible, with goalie Ray Mc-
Dermid proving once and for all why
he is rated the best net-minder in
collegiate circles.

Michigan's track team, defending
Conference Indoor Champions, open-

741/ points in a lop sided victory
over Purdue and Ohio State.
The Wolverines took seven first
places in the track events and a first
in the pole vault, while the Buckeyes
and Boilermakers had two apiece.
Both visiting teams failed to live up
to their pre-meet reputations.
Boilermaker Bill Bangert took first
place in the shot put but failed to
break the existing Field House
record as his best toss of the evening
was a mere three-quarters of an inch
short. Chuck Fonville, who took sec-
ond place in the event for Michigan

Enrollment Will
Reach 14,000,
Officials Say
A record enrollment of 14,000, the
highest in the University's history,
has been predicted by Universi1y of-
ficials for the spring term.
With 2,214 veterans enrolled in the
current term, the University boasts
the largest enrollment of resident
veterans on any campus. University
officials estimate that between 5,000
and 6,000 veterans will be here for
the spring term.
Facilities For 14,000
Vice-President Robert P. Briggs
disclosed that the University does
have facilities to take care of the an-
ticipated 14,000, but problems of
housing, and crowded classrooms will
be prevalent.
This enrollment of 14,000 exceeds
by 1,500 the former record made in
the fall of 1939. Normal enrollment
figures usually ran 10,000 and under.
Housing Most Pressing
Most pressing of all problems is the
housing shortage, and no alleviation
of the difficulties is forecast for the
near future. Emergency housing
measures have been set up, ranging
from portable housing units to the
housing project at Willow Run. The
Dean of Student's Office discloses
that almost no facilities in private
homes have been reported in the past
few months.
The Willow Run project, 12 miles
from the campus, is housing both
single and married veterans and spe-
cial bus service has been provided for
these students.
No Appropriations Since '29
Commenting on the shortage of
classrooms and laboratory facilities,
President Alexander G. Ruthven de-
clared that no state appropriations
have been made for educational
buildings at the University since
1927. He added that the present rise
in enrollment figures are nothing
new, as the student body of the Uni-

versity from 1930 to 1940 increased 27
per cent. The result is, President
Ruthven said, that classes are being
held in buildings ranging from 52 to
104 years old, many of which were
slated for replacements years ago.
Readjusting classroom schedules
and using every available inch of
space still does not mean that the,
University can take all the students
who request admission, President
Ruthven said, but despite the lack of
facilities, no qualified Michigan vet-
eran has been turned away. The lack
of facilities has led, however, to the
current policy of admitting no new
out-of-state students.

Job Requests
Show Increase
Over Last Year'
An increase over last year both in
the number of applications for sum-
mer jobs and in the calls from camps
and resorts for student help was re-
ported by the University Bureau of
Appointments and Occupational In-
formation yesterday.
Although the greatest number of
requests continues to come from
Michigan camps and resorts, Dr. T.
Luther Purdom, Director of the Bur-
eau, said, many Eastern resorts and
camps have asked for student per-
The range of positions open to
students, he said, includes wat'_r-
front and dramatics directors, typ-
ists, licensed drivers, entertainers,
waiters, dietitians and counsellors.
Experience is not necessary for many
of the positions. He pointed out
that there is' a demand for graduates
who can undertake the responsibility
of being directors of camp units or
of entire camps.
Although requests for resort and
camp workers are most frequent, Dr.
Purdom said that there are a limited
number of jobs available to students
in cities.
Application blanks for summer
jobs may be obtained from 9 a.m. to
noon and from 1 to 4:30 p.m. in Rm.

Bolte's Action
Affirmed by
Local Chapter
Legion Leader
Attacks General
A statement issued by Charles G.
Bolte, national president of the Amer-
ican Veterans' Committee, defending
Gen. Omar N. Bradley's conduct of
the Veterans' Administration has been
endorsed by the Steering Committee
of the Ann Arbor Chapter of AVC.
The firecracker went off when John
Stelle, national commander of the
American Legion, wrote in a letter to
Congress that there had been a "trag-
ic breakdown" in the Veterans' Ad-
ministration under Gen. Bradley and
that VA needed a "seasoned business
man" at its bead.
In his defense Gen. Bradley coun-
ter-attacker with a progress report
on VA operations since he became ad-
ministrator last August.
In a statement issued yesterday,
President Harry S. Truman de-
clared that he backed Gen. Bradley
"to the hilt" in the veteran admin-
istrator's feud with the American
Legion over the handling of veter-
ans' problems.
Four commanders of Michigan vet-
eran groups, including the American
Legion, have rallied behind Gen.
Bradley and defended his conduct of
the Veterans' Administration.
Bolte, in a press release issued yes-
terday said:
"I wish to state as vigorously as
possible the unqualified support of
AVC for Gen. Bradley and our firm
belief that he is not only eminently
qualified for his job but has per-
formed very nearly a miracle in
bringing the VA a long way out of the
state of inefficiency in to which it
had fallen-a state of inefficiency for
which the American Legion is very
largely responsible. We have every
confidence that Gen. Bradley is doing
the very best possible job under the
most trying of circumstances, and I
reassert our fath that he will do an
even better job if he is not subjected
to sniping attacks.
"Anyone familiar with the vet-
.erans' problems in this country will
have no difficulty in determining
the reason for this vicious and un-
warranted attack on Gen. Bradley
by the American Legion. The Le-
gion was able to boast for years
that it had the, VA in its pocket.
Gen. Bradley, since he has taken
office, has shown an independence
of thought and action which could
only prove irksome to the leaders
of the Legion. He has tried in-
creasingly to break away from the
sad pattern of the past--a pattern
in which policy was made for the
VA largely by the Legion, and in
which appointments to positions
in the VA were largely from the
ranks of Legionaires. Gen. Brad-
ley has attempted to provide ade-
quate and modern service for veter-
ans of this war without regard to
patronage. Naturally the leaders
of the Legion would prefer a 'sea-
soned business man' whom they
could control more easily.
"I wonder if the leaders of the Le-
gion consulted with their members
who are veterans of this war before
they issued their statement. If they
had, they would of course have found
dissatisfaction with many phases of
the veterans' rehabilitation program.
However, they might also have found

Early Change in Cloutre Rule Unlikely, Dr. Norton S

"In spite of the fact that the present Senate
filibuster on the FEPC bill is causing a great
deal of public comment, it does not seem likely
that the cloture rule will be modified in the
immediate future," Dr. Clark F. Norton of the
political science department stated yesterday.

According to the present Senate cloture rule,
a petition must be circulated and signed by at
least 16 persons. Then, two calendar days after
presentation, the petition is brought to a vote.
In order to go into effect, it must receive the
approval of two-thirds of the members present.
