Overcrowded
Colleges May
Be Relieved
Discussion To Be
Held Here in April
A 14-member committee will meet
here April 25 to discuss plans for di-
recting high school seniors to Michi-
gan's less-crowded colleges, Dr.
George E. Carrothers, director of the
University's Bureau of Cooperation
with Educational Institutions, an-
nounced yesterday.
The committee, of which Dr. Car-
rothers is chairman, will be com-
posed of seven members each of the
Michigan High School Association
and the Michigan College Associa-
tion.
The committee will consider what
high schools can do to persuade grad-
uating seniors not to enter the state's
over-crowded institutions, particu-
larly the University, Michigan State
College and Wayne University, Dr.
Carrothers said.
According to Dr. Carrothers, any
policies formulated by the commit-
tee in its meeting here and by the
MCA meeting in Ypsilanti May 7 will
be compulsory only to the extent that
the over-crowded schools limit new-
student admissions.
Contractors To
Construct 247
New Houses
Building on 247 new single-family
houses in AnnArbor and viciity will
begin during the next year, accord-
ing to estimates of four local con-
tractors representing 20 per cent of
those contacted in the Mayor's Hous-
ing Survey, Mayor William E. Brown
Jr. said yesterday.
The estimates apply only to these
firms, and were given with the under-
standing that they are not to be con-
sidered committments. Forty-seven
of the new houses will be just outside
the city limits.
Results of the survey will be inte-
grated with results of 813 interviews
with veterans conducted through the
local draft boards to determine hous-
ing needs. Sixteen veterans reported
"poor" housing, the mayor said.
Housing facilities were rated satis-
factory, fair, semi-satisfactory, and
poor.
Emphasizing the value of the sur-
vey in preparing a systematic study
of city housing needs, the mayor
urged those contractors who have not
yet replied to do so.

Barker Lauds
International
Atomic Control
Optimism Is Voiced
In Research Program
Praise for the newly-proposed in-
ternational atomic authority was ex-
pressed yesterday by Prof. Ernest
Barker, chairman of the physics de-
partment and president of the Re-
search Club, who termed the plan
"very satisfactory in almost every
way."
Coupled with the development of
denatured plutonium, Prof. Barker
remarked that "this makes the whole
situation look much more promising."
He predicted a boost for unrestrict-
ed researcl if the control arrange-
ments prove satisfactory. There will
be a demand for the materials from
all sides, he said.
Cornering the world's supply of
uranium and thorium will be a dif-
ficult problem, Prof. Barker said,
"but if the nations will cooperate, it
can be done."
Prospects of
Avoiding Coal
Strike Wane
WASHINGTON, March 29-(G)-
Prospects for averting a nationwide
soft coal strike Monday dimmed to
the vanishing point today, amid indi-
cations of increasing bitterness be-
tween John L. Lewis and industry re-
presentatives.
The UMW chief has ordered his
400,000 bituminous miners to stay out
of the pits after 12:01 a.m. Monday,
and the national coal association, in
a statement, declared today that
"there is no present prospect of any
agreement" which might avert the
coal stoppage.
The trade organization's statement,
issued by John D. Battles, executive
secretary, accused Lewis of stalling
and "collective bargaining in name
only." It was reported that Lewis had
made a bitterly-worded reply at to-
day's negotiating conference.
After the meeting, which recessed
until tomorrow, Lewis refused to dis-
cuss the nature of his remarks, but
told newsmen the operators might
furnish the information. However,
the industry negotiators likewise re-
fused to discuss any details of today's
meeting.
Better Train
Service Sought
Aiming at better train service for
the city, Mayor W. E. Brown, Jr.,

learned today.
The Motor City Special runs be-
tween Detroit and Chicago, passing
through Ann Arbor at 1:30 a.m. go-
ing west, and at 7 a.m. coming from
Chicago. The mayor's request was
made in a letter to the railroad's vice-

president in charge of traffic. The
city Chamber of Commerce also has
written the railroad on this matter.

Charged in
CIO Elections
Thiotas Accuses
Outside Interests
By The Associated Press
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J., March
29--A charge that "gangsters and
hoodlums" were trying to influence
CIO United Auto Workers' elections
was made today by former president
R. J. Thomas.
An investigation was authorized
after Thomas told the UAW-CIO
convention that lives were "jeopard-
ized" in an effort of outside interests
to "pressure" certain delegates.
Thomas' statement marked a day
in which the UAW-CIO finally com-
pleted the organization of its new
high command, in which Reuther is
outnumbered politically, and reject-
ed a proposal to increase officers' sal-
aries.
Richard T. Leonard, Detroit re-
gional director and head of the UAW
Ford department, was elected to the
second of the Vice Presidencies, giv-
ing the Thomas forces a 3 to 1 edge
in the top offices.

Reuther Affirms
Faith in 'Ablity
To'Pay' Rude
ATLANTIC CITY, Mar. 29-P)-
Walter Reuther has no intention of
dropping the "ability to pay" argu-
ment in future wage negotiations.
The new president of the CIO
United Auto Workers made this clear
in an interview today.
During his campaign for the UAW
leadership this week, Reuther aroused
nationwide interest when he said his
demand to "look at the books" of
General Motors had been "injected
merely as a part of our maneuvers."
Nevertheless he showed in replying
to questions today that he still is
convinced it is a sound economic
argument to seek higher wages from
some companies on the ground that
the companies can afford to pay
them.
Reuther also reiterated his deter-
mination to work for wage increases
without price increases wherever pos-
sible but said the union had no in-
tention of trying to participate dir-
ectly in the setting of automobile
prices.
Rider Added
ToWage Bill
Farm Pries Ra ised
Veto Threat ignored
WASHINGTON, March 29-(P)-~~
Disregarding a presidential veto
threat, the Senate wrote into the
Minimum Wage Bill today an Amend-
ment designed to raise farm prices
by revising the crop parity price for-
mula.
The amendment, pushed through
by a group of Southern Democrats
with Republican aid, carried 43 to 41.
The roll was called shortly after
Majority Leader Barkley told the
Senators President Truman had ad-
vised him he would be "compelled" to
veto the bill if it came to him bear-
ing the farm price rider.
Senator Russell (D-Ga) attacked
the White House move as an attempt
at "coercion and intimidation." He
declared the President had "no" right
to come into Congress with a threat
to veto."

The amendment, sponsored by
Senator Russell would revise the farm
crop parity formula by including the
cost of farm labor in the computa-
tion.

Change of Site for Marriage Relation
Ser ies Termed Impractical, Impossible

Leclares Can't Be

Moved--

In answer to demands that the
marriage relation lecture series be
moved from Rackham Lecture Hall
to Hill Auditorium so that more stu-
dents could attend, W. Lloyd Ber-
ridge, chairman of the faculty-
student committee in charge of ar-
rangements, said that it would be
"impractical and probably impos
sible" to make the change.
Speakers Prefer Small Groups
Berridge explained that Hill Audi-
torium was "too large and formal a
place" for this type of lecture, and
that speakers in previous marriage
series had preferred to talk to smal-
ler groups.
He also pointed to the difficulties
of making arrangements to hold the
series at Hill Auditorium "at this late
date" and questioned whether more
than 500 or 600 more tickets could be
sold even if the change were made.
Hill Auditorium seats approxi-
mately 4,700, while Rackham Lee-
ture Hall seats approximately 1,200
peopale.
Seond series Impossile
A second series this term, or lec-
tures on two nights instead of one,
would be impossible to arrange, he
said, because the speakers' schedules
are already filled.
The next series will probably be
given next November.
Berridge emphasized that he was
speaking for himself only, and not
for other members of the committee,
The committee, which has not met
since the ticket sale, has the power
to vote the change.

Stasse n Will
Head New GOP
Poo icy.Group
WASHINGTON, March 29-(IP)-
Harold E. Stassen, one of those often
mentioned as a 1948 Republican
presidential aspirant, announced to-
night a new national organization
to develop suggestions from young
Republicans for Party policy.
The announcement from the for-
mer governor of Minnesota, came as
GOP leaders began arriving here for
Monday's meeting to pick a new Na-
tional Committee Chairman.
Stassen will be Chairman of the
Advisory Committee of the Policy-
Suggesting Organization, to be known
as "the Republican Open Forums."
Several governors, senators, and re-
presentatives will be members of the
committee.
Stassen said, the organization will
send out booklets to Republican
groups on how to conduct neighbor-
hood forums. With these booklets will
go each month a printed ballot with
popular questions to be answered by
forum participants.
Stassen told reporters he does not
have a choice for Republican Nation-
al Chairman to succeed the retiring
Herbert Brownell, Jr. But he gave a
strong hint that he would be among
the candidates for the presidential
nomination two years hence.

SALTY:
Man of Action
Converted to
Mr. Anthony
By BETTYANN LARSEN
Every sailor needs a "salty ad-
visor," and each of the 3,000 sailors,
who have gone through the Univer-
sity's Naval Training Program has
found that advisor in Frank Joly
(pronounced jolly).
If "salty" is a title received for sev-
eral years of active duty, Joly quali-
fies in that his first contact with the
Navy came in 1911 when he was 17.
Enlisting at New York near his
Rhode Island home, Joly trained at
Great Lakes before going on duty
in the China area-specifically the
Yangtze River patrol.
Oriental Adventure
It was during his tour of duty in
China that his ship encountered
rather serious difficulty when fed-
eral and rebel troops were en-
trenched at either side of the river in
which his ship was anchored. Be-
cause fire was overshooting respec-
tive targets, one of the belligerents
sent a message to the American cap-
tain saying, "Please move your ship.
We'd like to lower our fire." They
moved.
After China he cane back to the
States as a Chief Quartermaster. It
is here that he put three mine sweep-
ers into commission-one was the
U.S.S. Bittern, which was sunk be-
hind Corregidor to prevent the enemy
from using it.
As chief quartermaster on Guam,
his duties included the surveying of
the harbor's caring for the governor's
charts-and establishing such serv-

ice departments as harbor shops
and the island baseball team. Joly
was shortstop.
Weather Man
Before he participated in the es-
tablishment of the University
NROTC Unit in 1940, Joly served as
hydrographer at Sault Ste. Marie,
where his duties included contacting
all lake captains concerning weather
and river reports.
Before Capt. R. E. Cassidy left the
Unit here he rated July 4.0 in pro-
ficiency, ability as a leader and con-
duct.
Currently he is working with Prof.
Arthur Aiton on plans for th Ann
Arbor Army Day celebration which
will be held Thursday.
