Chinese Communists
Capture Two Generals
As Undeclared Civil War Continues
Government Armies Retreat To South
By The Associated Press
CHVNGKING, Thursday, Nov. 8-Chinese Communists have captured
two Central Government Army .Commanders-one reportedly committed
suicide-in Southern Hopeh province and forced the government armies to
retreat, a military spokesman acknowledged today.
The scene of this reversal in China's undeclared civil war is the same
one where the Communists claim they have routed 70,000 government troops.
The spokesman said one of the captured generals was Ma Fah Wu,
Commander of the 41st Army. He is understood to have committed suicide.

President Attributes
Success To Students

Having completed a season de-
scribed as "more successful than we
thought probable or possible" by Pres-
ident Wayne Saari, the store of the
Student Book Exchange at the Game
Room of the League closed yesterday.
The final tabulation of sales has
not been completed, but John Hou-
ston, store manager, expects the sales
total to approach 1,000 dollars. Mem-
bers of the Exchange attribute this
success to the cooperation of students
in dealing with the organization in
buying and selling used texts.
Besides general campus coopera-
tion, the Exchange success depends
directly on the contributions of work
made by more than 50 students who
helped at the store, in preparing pub-
licity and in collecting books. Saari
points out that the cooperation of the
student officers and staffs of the
Union and League are also responsi-
ble to a great measure for the suc-
A general membership meeting of
the Exchange will be held at 7:30
p.m. Tuesday in Rm. 302 of the Union.
Reports on the activities of the Ex-
change since it opened October 29
will be made and plans for future
functioning discussed.
Game Progress
To Be Recorded
At Grid Shuffle
The Grid Graph, designed to let
stay-at-home fans follow visually the
progress of the Michigan-Navy game
at Baltimore, will be prominently
featured at the Grid Shuffle, first
campus mixer of the term from 2 to 5
p. m. Saturday in the Rainbow Room
of the Union.
Crossed by 11 lines to indicate yard
markers on the gridiron, the pro-
gress of the ball toward the opos-
ing goal will be marked by colored
chalk, yellow for the Wolverines and
blue for the Middies. Each play will
be recorded, as well as a notation of
the down and the time left to play
in the quarter. The board will be
wiped clean at the beginning of each
As they note the score of the game,
students will be dancing to the music
of popular phonograph records over
the ballroom's public address system.
Various mixing stunts and circle
dances will be initiated throughout
the afternoon.
"Thetsuccess of Grid Shuffles last
season indicates that there should be
a capacity crowd in the ballroom Sat-
urday. We can confidently promise a
fullyafternoon's entertainment for
everyone," John Sorice, head of the
Union Campus Affairs Committee and
director of the Saturday mixer de-
clared yesterday. Spectators may
come with or without dates and there
is no admission charge.
The radio report of the game will
not interfere with the music for the
dancers, as the scorekeeper will keep
posted through earphones. Whenever
either team reaches scoring territory,
however, the radio will be turned up
so that all the fans can receive the
first-hand account.

under able Gen. Ho Lung, the Com-
munists drew their fiery siege ring
tighter around Kweisui, capital of

Appearing for the fifth consecutive
year, the Cleveland orchestra, con-
ducted by Erich Leinsdorf, will pre-
sent the second Choral Union concert,
at 7 p.m. Sunday in Hill Auditorium.
Erich Leinsdorf, returning to the
Podium after a year in service, has
established himself among the fore-
mest younger conductors of America.
He has appeared as guest conductor
in Germany Italy, Canada, Cuba and
in many American cities. Now in its
twenty-eighth season, the orchestra
was first conducted by Nikolai Soko-
loff and later by Artur Rodzinski.
Winter Concerts Numerous
During its winter season, the or-
chestra presents nearly fifty con-
certs in addition to its forty regular
subscription concerts in Cleveland,
twilight concerts, ballet performances,
civic concerts and radio concerts.
The Cleveland Orchestra is one of
the few symphony organizations to
own the hall in which it plays. 8ev-
erance Hall, its home, the gift of the
noted philanthropist, John Long Sev-
erance, was first opened to the public
on Feb. 5, 1931.
Broadcast to World
The Sunday night program will be
highlighted by the orchestra's per-
formance of the Bruckner "Sym-
phony No. 7 in E major." Ravel's "Bo-
elro" and the suite from the ballet,
"Appalachian Spring" by Copland
complete the program.
Two years ago the Cleveland Or-
chestra added a series of nineteen
