Awarded Peace Prize
Red Cross at Geneva, Switzerland, for
its wor'k among prisoners of war.
First Award Since 1938
This was the first time the prize
had been awarded since 1938. Nor-
mally it is voted annually by the
Nobel Committee of the Norwegian
Parliament to the person or persons
"who shall have most or best promot-
ed the fraternity of nations and the
abolishment or diminution of stand-
ing armies and the formation and ex-
tension of peace congresses."
While ill health forced Hull to re-
sign as secretary of state before the
United Nations Charter was adopted
at San Francisco, he is often referred
to as "father" of the peace organiza-
tion because of his long efforts to
bring the nations of the world to-
gether, in a working unit to guard
against future aggression.
Moscow Conference Cited
Among the outstanding contribu-
tions he made toward this end was his
14,000-mile trip to Moscow in Octo-
ber, 1943, to discuss unity of the
great powers in war and peace with
former British Foreign Secretary An-
thony Eden and Soviet Foreign Com-
missar V. M. Molotov.
Hull is the eighth American to be
designated for the peace award since
it was first made in 1901.

that John L. Lewis, leader of the
United Mine Workers, is back in the
American Federation of Labor but
Lewis' associates denied it.
Likewise, President William L.
Green of the AFL, termed "bunk" a
published hint that a secret agree-
ment had been reached with Lewis
and a substantial amount of dues
paid the AFL.
But Richard T. Frankensteen, vice-
president of the CIO United Auto-
mobile Workers, said the CIO under-
stood "on very good information" that
Lewis had amalgamated his union
with the organization with which he
split several years ago.
Such an amalgamation, said Frank-

ing the AFL-UMW combination an
extra vote over CIO at the national

BELGRADE, Nov. 12 -(/P)- Virtu-

that Marshal Tito's National Front
won a sweeping endorsement in Sun-
day's general elections, despite an
appeal by the opposition leaders for
a boycott of the balloting.
National Front candidates for the
constituent assembly, running with-
out opposition, polled the heaviest
vote ever recorded in Yugoslavia,
partly because women were voting for
the first time.
Incomplete returns showed that
more than 90 percent of the nation's
8,020,671 eligible voters had cast bal-
It was evident -from the large vote
that very few people stayed away
from the polls as a result of the oppo-

Of A-Bomb
Attlee Says United
Pool Is Solution
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 12-President
Truman, Prime Minister Attlee of
Britain and Prime Minister Mac-
Kenzie King of Canada are making
good progress toward a joint atomic
bomb policy, British officials indicate
This is true despite disclosure by
these authorities of what may be a
basic difference in objective between
Mr. Truman and Mr. Attlee. Mr.
Truman had talked recently of out-
lawing the atomic bomb.
Bomb Cannot Be Outlawed
Mr. Attlee, it is said by his asso-
ciates, has taken the line that it can-
not be outlawed effectively and that
the way to handle it is to put it under
control of the United Nations Secur-
ity Council.
Whether the President and Prime
Ministers regard these as conflicting
approaches to the problem has not
been disclosed. It is stated, however,
that expert advisers of the three are
already at work drafting a communi-
que for the three conferees to go
over, and that this may be issued
Thursday or Friday.
United Nations Pool Proposed
There were indications that if the
United States, Britain and Canada
decide to offer Russia information
about atomic energy, the price to the
Russians will be drastic concessions
on their policy of national secrecy.
This possibility, which some Allied
officials regard almost as a certainty,
grows out of Attlee's plan for creat-
ing a United Nations pool of basic in-
formation on atomic energy and other
scientific developments. Russia like
any other country would share in
the pool only by contributing to it.
Stalin To Be Informed
As soon as the Anglo-American-
Canadian talks here are wound up it
is expected by some of those close to
the principals that Generalissimo
Stalin will be fully informed of their
results. One purpose of the British
plan, according to persons familiar
with it, is to reduce Russian suspi-
cions of the western Allies and try to
induce Russia in turn to take politi-
cal actions which will cut down west-
ern suspicions of her.
Attlee is represented as contend-
ing that any atomic bomb control to
work must depend on good faith
among nations. He considers pro-
posals for international inspection to
prevent or limit manufacture of the
bomb to be ineffective.
Frats Store
Bones, Books
Three Years
The remains of a skeleton, boxes of
paper and books, all the property of
half a dozen campus fraternities,
have been stored for nearly three
years in a room in the Rackham
Building, guarded by the Michigan
Historical Collections.
Frat Reclaims Papers
These fraternities, reluctant to
leave their private records, even under
lock and key, in the houses which
they had to abandon for the duration,
intrusted their possessions to the Col-
lections. The first of the fraternities
has now reclaimed its papers.

Such items as constitutions, min-
utes, scrap books, pictures, and early
University publications comprise the
bulk of the material stored, much of
it old enough to be valuable histori-
cally besides its value to the fraterni-
ties. It is expected that the fraterni-
ties will leave some of the oldest rec-
ords with the Collections perma-
Records Secret
When the fraternities were first
faced with the problem of storing the
papers, the Collections was suggested
by an alumnus familiar with its work
of gathering papers and records. The
Collections then offered its facilities
to all fraternities desiring to use
them, agreeing to keep all records
secret. The fraternities have had
access to their papers throughout the
war, consulting them particularly be-
fore initiations.
