Move To Lift
League House
OPA Ceilin"s
University Seeks
Price Exemption
Whether league houses are "part of
the University" and thus exempted
from OPA price regulations has been
the subject of a six months' contro-
versy between the Office of Price Ad-
ministration and University officials,
the Daily learned last night.
"The league houses of the Univer-
sity of Michigan are a part of the
University housing system and as
such are gpecifically exempt from
OPA control," Marvin L. Niehuss,
University vice-president pointed out.
A University statement on Wom-
ens housing reveals that the Uni-
versity sets the charge for league
house room and board, standards
covering furnishing and equip-
ment, cleanliness, sanitation, ven-
tilation, lighting and fire protec-
University officials declared that
an OPA decision in which league
houses were judged "a part of the
University" had been reversed when
a particular branch OPA office dis-
continued operation.
Meanwhile, complaints have been
filed with the OPA by University
women against operators of several
University league houses charging
violations of price ceilings for board,
an OPA official revealed.
The most recent complaint charged
that one league house raised the
prices for breakfast and lunch 20 per
cent over the one dollar per day OPA
ceiling this term.
The University is petitioning the
OPA in Washington, according to a
local OPA official, in an attempt to
lift the ceiling on league house
board. °A decision oft the petition,
filed last month, is expected mo-
mentarily, OPA spokesmen said.
When asked for a statement on the
progress of the petition, Dean Mary C.
Bromage said, "You will have to see
the University lawyer about that."
Talbot Smith, University attorney,
denied knowledge of such a petition.
OPA has requested students'
charged above ceiling prices to file
complaints, annonymously if they
wish, with the Price Administration.

BATAVIA, Nov. 3-()-Indonesian
troops up to 100,000 strong and bear-
ing Japanese arms are marching and
concentrating in central Java, Brit-
ish pilots said today, while political
tension heightened over the Dutch
government's refusal to deal with
President Soekarno of the "Indone-
sian Republic."
The British Fifth Indian Division
commanded by Maj. Gen. Eric Carden
Mansergh began landing today at
Soerabaja, scene of bitter clashes be-
tween Indian troops and Indonesians
seeking independence from Dutch
colonial rule. Mansergh's is the sec-
ond British division to land in Java.
At 10 p. m. curfew was clamped on
all British troops in Batavia. All
personnel were ordered to carry arms
at all times and not to appear with-

out escort.
Pilots said Indonesian raids had
burned out half the town of Kebora-
jan, south of Batavia. In this region
Dutch troops have been holding out
successfully against an estimated
30,000 Indonesians attacking in
groups of a hundred or more.
In Batavia a grave view was taken
of the political situation following
the Dutch home government's an-
nouncement that acting Lt. Gover-
nor General Hubertus Van Mook had
acted contrary to instructions in
meeting with Soekarno.
It was believed the British and
even some Dutch advisers had urged
Van Mook to see Soekarno and his
cabinet members in order to relieve

Two Chinese
Towns Taken
By Communists
Fighting Is Spreading
To Northern Sections
By The Associated Press
CHUNGKING, Nov. 3-A North
China provincial capital and a rail-
way city fell today to attacking Chi-
nese Communists, unofficial reports
said, as Reds in Chungking received
with skepticism a new four-point Na-
tionalist proposal to end the spread-
ing civil warfare.
Unconfirmed reports said Kweesui,
capital of the partly-industrialized
inner Mongolian province of Suiyuan,
fell to the overwhelming force of
Communists who opened the attack
only yesterday.
These same reports said the vital
railway city of Tatung to the south-
west also was overrun by the Com-
If true, the twin victories would
greatly strengthen the Communist
position in inner Mongolia and would
hamper attempts by slender National-
ist forces there to join up with fresh
Nationalist troops now pouring in by
air to the Peiping-Tientsin zone.
Despite these reported successes,
Communist cources here expressed
fears that the government was about
to strike with a heavy offensive to
crush the Reds and declared 800,000
Nationalist troops had been massed
in northern and east-central China.
A Communist spokesman declared
without confirmation that fighting
had spread to Manchuria, now being
evacuated by Russian occupation for-
ces. He said it centered at the South
Manchurian port of Hulutao, where
Chinese Nationalist troops were land-
ed earlier this week from U. S. trans-

Suppress New
Anti-Jewish Riot
CAIRO, Nov. 3-()-Club-swinging
police quickly suppressed a new out-
burst of anti-Zionist rioting today
when rampaging mobs for the second
day stoned business establishments
and smashed shop windows in down-
town Cairo.
The riots, which killed nine persons
and injured 520 in Cairo and Alexan-
dria, were strongly denounced by Pie-
mier Nokrashi Pasha as inspired by
"evil hands." He promised "justice

Returns to Normal
Most of Cairo had returned to near-
normal this afternoon.
The renewed demonstrations lasted
less than an hour, but crowds surged
through Soliman Pasha Street, one
of Cairo's most fashionable shopping
The rioting spread to other main
streets in the business district. Shop-
keepers immediately started closing
their establishments, lowering metal
drop doors or wooden shutters over
the windows.
Shops Remained Closed
In Cairo's Malika Farida Square,
the center of yesterday's heaviest riot-
ing, all Jewish shops remained closed.
In Alexandria's shopping center not
one pane of glass remained intact
and communications were at a com-
plete standstill.
College students continued demon-
strations within college grounds,
shouting "down with Zionism," but
no disturbances were reported.

Jap Brutality
By Yamashita
MANILA, Nov. 3-W)-Two witnes-
ses testified today that Lt. Gen. Tom-
oyuki Yamashita had issued orders
to "wipe out all Filipinos" and had
commended his brutal Japanese gen-
darmes for their "fine work."
Over the vigorous protests of de-
fense counsel the witnesses asserted
the former Japanese commander in
the Philippines knew and approved
his troops' brutalities, thus for the
first time in the week-long trial offer-
ing testimony linking him directly
with the crimes.
One of them, Narcisco Lapus, for-
mer secretary to the exiled political
General Artemio Ricarte, told the
military commission that in conver-
sations with Ricarte Yamashita af-
firmed his order to wipe out all Fili-
A Japanese, Fermin Miyasaki, for-
mer interpreter at Japanese military
Police headquarters here, said the
general had officially commended his
police for their "fine work" in handl-
ing civilians hostile to his regime.
The witness said he saw at least 400
civilian suspects "handled" by the
police. Most of them were beaten, he
asserted, and many underwent the
water torture or were suspended from
the ceiling by their hands, which were
tied behind their backs.
Earlier in today's session Yama-
shita was the target of an hysterical
outburst by a 17-year-old Filipino girl
who had testified that infuriated Jap-
anese shot or beheaded more than
400 civilians in Manila in one day
last February.

MacArthur Acts
o Supply Fuel
Requests Priorities
For Jap Coal Miners
TOKYO, Nov. 3 - (') - General
MacArthur moved today to avert a
winter fuel-famine in Japan by ask-
ing American commanders in China,
Korea and the Pacific Islands to give
priority to coal-miners in the repatri-
ation of Japanese Military Forces.
The General's action was prompted
by a 50-per cent decrease in coal pro-
duction on Hokkaido, th'e northern
island from which Japan, now shorn
of its far-flung imperial resources,
will have to get most of its supply
for the hard winter ahead.
MacArthur said the decrease was
largely due to the evacuation from
Japan of Korean and Chinese miners.

Wolverines Retain
Little Brown Jug
Crislermen Tally Three Touchdowns
In Closing Stanza After Tight Contest
Daily Sports Editor
The Little Brown Jug will stay in Ann Arbor for another year.
Michigan's football team took care of that yesterday by outplaying a
game but badly outclassed Minnesota eleven, to rack up one of the most
convincing victories in the 46-year old rivalry between the schools before
a highly partisan crowd of 85,132 rabid fans.
The final score was 26-0, and the Wolverines were just about that
(much better than the highly-touted Gophers, who were no match for

ges, who capably performed ailing
Captain Joe Ponsetto's duties at

Bombs Fail To Halt
Parade in Argentina
BUENOS AIRES, Nov. 3-(A)-Two
tear-gas bombs were fired today
while police were asking demonstra-
tors in favor of Col. Juan Peron's
candidacy for President of Argentina
to halt their parade.
The rally was banned yesterday by
Interior Minister Col. Bartolome Des-
calzo, who resigned soon afterward
and was replaced today by Gen.
Felipe Urdapilleta.
Three hundred persons began a
march from Buenos Aires to a Peron,

ignoring a police request to disperse.

fired the bombs.

Gopher Waterloo in Fourth
Minnesota was able to make a game
of it during the first three stanzas,
repeatedly threatening to tie the score
after Michigan had gone ahead late
in the first quarter on a 65-yard
march. But after the Wolverines
made it 14-0 early in the fourth
period, the Gophers wilted rapidly
and never were in the game there-
Michigan added two more touch-
downs in the final period, just to
make the victory convincing, mixing
a powerful, deceptive running game
with a potent air attack. Howard

inga, and Warren Bentz crossed the
goal-line for the Wolverines, and

Michigan's superiority was reflect-
ed in the statistics of the game. The
Wolverines piled up 19 first downs
to 11 for Minnesota. They netted
261 yards by rushing to their oppo-

Wage Parleys
DETROIT, Nov. 3-(P-Walter P.
Reuther, vice-president of the CIO
Automobile Workers Union, said today
that wage negotiations between the
union and General Motors Corp. will
be resumed next Wednesday.
At that time, Reuther said, the
Corporation plans to give its answer
to the union's briefs supporting its
deman dfor a 30 per cent wage rate
Similar negotiations with Chrysler
Corp. are to be resumed on November
15, and will be opened with the Ford
Motor Co. on Nov. 20.
Reuther said today he had request-
ed Secretary of Labor Schwellenbach
to assign a conciliator to the negotia-
tions. The Union, he said, would
make available to the conciliator the
verbatim record of negotiations thus
far "which establishes the corpora-
tion's refusal to enter into genuine
bargaining despite our efforts."
General Motors made no comment
on Reuther's assertion.
R. J. Thomas, UAW-CIO president,
said in a statement that government
sources were withholding information
showing that the motor-car industry
could grant 30 per cent wage rate in-
creases and still make high profits.
Thomas made his statement in
commenting on a Commerce Depart-
ment report that the automobile in-
dustry could grant a 15 per cent wage
increase in 1946 and a 25 per cent
rise in 1947.
That report, Thomas said, was

The swing to the left in govern-
