Yank-Trained Chinese
Forces Are Reported in
War On Communists
By The Associated Press
CHUNGKING, Nov. 2 - A Chi-
nese Communist dispatch charged to-
day that the central government's
new Sixth Army, equipped and train-
ed by Americans, is in action against
the Reds along the southern section
of the Tientsin-Pukow railroad.
]First Accusation
It was the first accusation that
American drilled and supplied Chi-
nese troops were involved in the cur-
rent strife.
Previously the Communists had ex-
pressed open irritation over the em-
ployment of United States transports
to take central government forces to
Chinese Communist "liberated areas."
The Chinese Sixth Army fought the
Japanese in northern Burma ahead
of construction crews building the
Stilwell highway.
Await Hurley Return
Official China awaited today the re-
turn from Washington of U. S. Am-
bassador Maj. Gen. Patrick J. Hur-
ley in the hope he might help avert
full-scale civil war. In Peiping Gen.
Lt. Tsung-Jen, highest ranking gov-
ernment officer in the strife-torn
north, said,
"There may be a small war now in
China, between the central govern-
ment and Chinese Communists, but
major differences can be decided by
Li blamed Communists for current
violence, said neither American men
nor American equipment were being
used against the Reds. He predicted
that Communist efforts to control the
north will fail because, he said, they
lack both troops and popular support.
British Battle
Indonesians in
New Uprisings
BATAVIA, No. 2-()-Sharp en-
counters with Indonesian extremists
broke out in Batavia today after
heavy fighting at Malegang was halt-
ed under a temporary truce negotiat-
ed with the aid of President Soek-
arno of the "Indonesian Republic."
Fighting in the capital began in
Indonesian headquarters behind the
Hotel Des Indes, and snipers fired
machine guns for an hour before
British seaforth highlanders restored
order. Casualties on both sides were
believed light, said the Dutch news,
agency Aneta.
RAF planes again strafed Indo-
nesian forces battling British Indian
troops in Malegang before the truce
was achieved. The planes also drop-
ped supplies to the British forces at
the naval base of Soerabaja.
Aneta quoted pilots returning from
Soerabaja as saying they saw fight-
ing in progress by the light of huge
fires raging in the naval base city.
Meanwhile Capt. T. L. Laughland,
one of two officers who escaped from
Soerabaja when British Brigadier A.
W. F. Mallaby was slain, returned to
Batavia by air and was hospitalized.
Local Stores
Reveal Civilian
Suit Shortage
Advice to newly-returned veterans:

if you haven't purchased that civvie
suit, get down to the clothing stores
A Daily survey of three men's stores
adjacent to the campus yesterday re-
vealed that stocks are low. Salesmen
differed in their predictions as to
when the situation will improve-
they ranged from Christmas to next
spring-but all agreed that with hun-
,dreds more reterans returning, short-
ages will grow deeper in the immedi-
ate future.
All firms questioned said they would
like to sell stocks on hand to return-
ed veterans. One firm is limiting
civilian purchasers to one suit, al-

WASHINGTON, Nov. 2-(P)-Re-
publicans and Democrats fought a
new Pearl Harbor battle on the Sen-
ate floor today over Republican com-
plaints that their inquiries into the
disaster are being blocked.
Senator Brewster (R.-Me.) charged
he had been denied by a five to three
party vote of a Senate-House inquiry
committee the riglit to check a tip
that vital documents are missing from
Army and Navy communications com-
mission files.
Democratic leader Barkley (Ky.)
said that so far as the committee
and its counsel know "there are no
missing papers."
Senator Ferguson (R.-Mich.) as-
serted that William D. Mitchell, com-
mittee counsel, had "taken it upon
himself to make policy decisions" by
inviting the Army to pick some engi-
neers to testify as witnesses.
Brewster declared that Army of-
ficers had changed their testimony
when former Secretary of War Stim-
son sent Maj. Henry C. Clausen
"around the -world" to trace down
new leads after an Army inquiry
board had made its report.
The Republicans complained bit-
terly that while a committee action
earlier in the day opened the way to
government officials to volunteer in-
formation, they still are barred from
looking at records unless a majority
of the committee approves.
The committee decided to start
open hearings Nov. 15.
The verbal battle developed when
CIO Threatens
Court Action
In Price Battle
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 2-The wage
battle took new turns today with the
scrimmage spreading into the gov-
ernment itself and no solution in
The CIO auto workers, seeking a 30
percent wage raise, threatened court
action to prevent any "unwarranted
increases" in new car prices.
Arthur S. Flemming, civil service
commissioner, said he was authorized
to state that the 20 percent raise for
federal workers would be "in con-
formity with the program of the
Pay Below Private Industry
The pay scales of government work-
ers, he told the Senate's civil service
committee, are below the levels of
private industry and a raise is need-
ed to bring them "to a plane of
The endorsement for the 20 percent
raise for the bulk of government
workers was accompanied by this rec-
A $10,000 a year raise for con-
gressmen, federal judges, top people
in the administrative branch-such as
cabinet members-and more pay for
other government officials such as
undersecretaries and assistant secre-
taries and agency heads.
CIO Opposes Price Raises
Vice president Walter Reuther of
the CIO auto workers said his organ-
ization would go into court to prevent
higher passenger car prices from go-
ing into effect if OPA should grant
"unwarranted increases."
OPA boss Chester Bowles has said
retail price ceilings on all major
makes of new cars would be announc-
ed within a few days.
Reuther said his union had been
denied a look at the cost and price
figures given OPA by automakers as
a basis for the new car price sched-
ules which Bowles is to announce.
Reuther told a news conference his
union would "fight just as hard
against price increases as it will
fight for a 30 per cent wage increase."
Reuther said the UAW's contem-
plated court action in case of higher
automobile prices would be filed under
the Price Control Act. That law, he
said, provides for protests by any

interest dissatisfied with a price rul-
ing. The next step under the act in
case OPA turned down the protest,
Reuther said, would be an appeal to
the emergency court of appeals which
would have authority to issue an in-
junction against the price ruling if
it did not find that ruling justified.

Wolverine-Gopher Contest to Be Important
Factor in 1945 Conference Championship
Daily Sports Editor
Michigan and Minnesota, key teams in the wild scramble that is the
1945 Western Conference football race, will renew their 53-year old rivalry
today which may develop into one of the hottest contests of the current
Big Ten campaign.
Most observers rate the game a tossup in pre-kickoff speculations,
although the Gophers have been accorded a slight edge in some quarters
on the basis of superior scoring punch. Michigan, however, is favored by
more than a few of those "in the know."
A crowd of 85,000 persons, largest of the season, is expected to jam
the mammoth stadium for this meeting between the best offensive and
defensive elevens in Conference circles. Should the throng materialize,
it will be the largest gathering since 1943, when 86,408 persons watched
Notre Dame defeat the Wolverines, 35-12.

Barnes, Others
at Press Club

Tom Yarbrough, Associated Press
correspondent in the European and
Asiatic theatres of war initial speaker
at the Press Club dinner yesterday in
the League, expressed the belief that
Germany was a completely conquered
nation. He said it would take at least
ten years to reconstruct her cities.
Julio Garzon, New York corres-
pondent for La Prensa, Buenos Aires
newspaper, said much friction has
been caused by the United States
public's comparative ignorance of its
neighbors to the South.
Describes State Penal System
At the afternoon session Kim Sig-
ler, special state prosecutor, de-
fended the one-man grand jury while
Dr. Garrett Heyns, director of the
State Department of Corrections, de-
scribed the Corrections Administra-
tion before and after centralization of
the Michigan penal system.
Basil L. Walters, executive editor of
Knight Newspapers, Inc., predicted
that the wirephoto, the facsimile
newspaper and the "Sunday-only"
newspaper would develop into dis-
tinct fields.
Barnes Business Peace
Ralph Barnes of the Detroit News,
wformerly head of OWI psychological
warfare in the Mediterranean area,
spoke on "Peace and the Possibilities
of Future Wars." He believes the
United States to be losing the peace
because of over-rapid demobilization,
the poor calibre of men in AMG, and
the baffling, incomprehensive United
States foreign policy, entailing mu-
tual distrust with Russia.
Officers for the next year will be
elected at today's session at 10 a.m.
Members of the University Press Club
of Michigan will be guests of the
Board in Control of Intercollegiate
Athletics at the game today.

Urging student participation in the
contest, Hess described it as "an ef-
fort to crystallize religious thought."
Kenney Says Army,
Navy Should Merge
WASHINGTON, Nov. 2-(P)-Gen.
George C. Kenney told Senators to-
day that time was lost in the war
against Japan while the Army and
Navy argued and compromised.
"If such delays resulted in pro-
longing the war just one day, what
price can we place upon the lives
thus lost?" he asked.
He asserted the war had demon-
strated that a single over-all com-
mand is required for victory in a
theater. He said he was "unable to

Yamashita Trial
Told of Mass
Japa Murders
MANILA, Nov .2--(MP-Japanese
troops machinegunned and burned
500 to 1,000 persons in a mad carni-
val of murder at the German Club
last February, the war crimes trial of
Lt. Gen. Tomoyuki Yamashita was
told today.
One witness testified that the Jap-
anese during the battle of Manila led
the victims from hiding places under
the club building and tortured and
shot them after performing acts so
"bestial it is hard to find words to
describe them."
Once the military commission pro-
ceedings were thrown into an uproar
when a Chinese woman witness, com-
pleting her testimony, leaped to her
feet and shouted ii Chinese at Yama-
shita, "I'd like to kill that man."
She had testified that she had lost
nine out of her family of 12 in the
slaughter by Yamashita's troops of
39 Chinese in a Manila lumber yard
Feb. 10. She said her four-year-old
son had been bayoneted repeatedly.
A pretty Filipino girl said her
mother and four brothers were killed
by Japanese who set fire to a building
in their yard where they had taken
refuge, then threw in hand grenades.
She herself escaped with horrible
leg burns from a flaming grave into
which she said the Japanese had
tossed her.

ne of the issues at stake when the
two teams take the field. Michigan is
now in possession of the trophy, hav-
ing had it since 1943.
Above and beyond the Jug is the
question of continued contention for
the Conference championship. Each
team has dropped one Big Ten tilt,
and another loss would leave the vic-
tim with only a mathematical chance
for titular laurels. A victory, on the
hand, would give the winner a new
lease on life in the red-hot chase for
the mythical award.
The two opposing coaches, Michi-
gan's Fritz Crisler and Minnesota's
Bernie Bierman, also have more at
stake than usual in the outcome.
Crisler has never seen one of his
teams win over a Bierman-coached
eleven in his tenure at Michigan and
would like nothing better than to
break the jinx.
Each mentor will be able to throw
his strongest lineup into the fray
with one important exception on the
Michigan side. Wolverine Capt. Joe
Ponsetto, regular quarterback for the
past two seasons, will miss the game
because of an injury. Howard Yerges
will start in his place.
The rest of the Michigan backfield
will probably have Walt Teninga and
Bob Nussbaumer at the halves and

cation of Panhandle Eastern to ex-
oort gas to Canada if it meant that
'Detroit's needs could not be filled.
