Vigorous Policy
CHICAGO, April 16 -(')- Walter
P. Reuther of the CIO United Auto
Workers, in his first report as presi-

day against "outlaw" strikes.
Reuther, discussing a program
which he presented to the Union's

also recommended promotion of in-

to junior misses all over America by
the Associated Press.
Several Ann Arbor corsetieres
agreed yesterday with the New York
fashion stylist who reported that
Miss America's hips have bewilder-
ed girdle manufacturers by con-
siderably out-growing the pre-war
Wasp-waists still are the vogue in
campus corset shops, but trim hips
may be a disappearing curiosity if
this girth-gaining continues, add'
these local stylists.
Michigan coeds, they say, have
managed to keep their svelte waist
lines, but fitting the buxom modern
misses into girdles of pre-war mea-
surements is becoming a real tussle.'
Before this seam-popping ten-
dency began, one local fitter called
26-34 the average coed waist-hip
proportion. But now, she said, 26-
36 is a more accurate figure.
The University Health Service was
a little reluctant to accept this growth
as a feature of the post-war world,
but Dr. Margaret Bell conjectures
that if true it may be a good thing.
Expanding hips wouldn't neces-
sarily be due to a growth of fatty
tissue, according to Dr. Bell. It might
mean a development of worthwhile
muscle or even an increase in bone
"If it's due to good muscular de-
velopment," she said, "it should
in general accentuate the desirable
feminine figure."
From the professional standpoint,
on :the other hand, the doctor would
welcome a growth in girth, for she
said "it would be fine for child-bear-
But Dr. Bell would deplore the
gain if it resulted just from an
abundance of fat. She warned "the
soft little beauties of 18" that this
expansion may only be the first
sign that their shapes will be a lot
different at the age of 40.
For coeds who may fit, the latter
category, she recommended the Uni-
versity's athletic program which she
said could take two or three inches
off the right places.

weeks and will be taught by Mr. Nor-
man Rice, former dean at the Chi-
cago Art Institute.
The program, to consist of lectures

primarily by the sponsors to attract
are teachers both within and without

courses of a similar nature are the
universities of California, Pennsyl-

offer the course may be selected to

Price Review
On Milk Sought
DETROIT, April 16 --()-The De-
troit Milk Dealers' Association today
asked the National Wage Stabiliza-
tion Board to reconsider its refusal
to allow them full price relief for the
18-cent hourly pay raise recently giv-
en the concern's dairy workers.
The Board held in a recent decis-
ion that only 10 cents of the amount
could be taken into consideration
in the dairymen's efforts to seek price
adjustments to compensate them for
the increased wages.
Carl F. Burger, assistant secretary
of the Association, contended that
the regional WSB at Detroit had ap-
proved "more than 300 applications

in the 18-cent range involving 450,-
000 employes in the Detroit area."
The applicants declared there is
"a definite relationship between the
auto and milk industry and that the
18-cent pattern has been definitely
established in the Detroit area."

Return of Low
rCost Clothing
Is Progressing
WASHINGTON, April 16- (IP) -
r John D. Small, civilian production
z administrator, today reported "sub-
, stantial progress" in the last 90 days
- in restoring low-cost clothing to re-
- tail stores.
s Small said cloth was set aside for
2,350,000 dozen men's shirts to re-
tail generally under $3, while an es-
timated 2,500,000 to 2,800,000 men's
suits were made, under similar set-
asides, to retail for less than $35.
Last week Small's textile division
director, Herbert Rose, reported that
e the output of men's suits "was far
t short of the government's goal." Sta-
e bilization Director Chester Bowles on
r Saturday said the low-cost clothing
s program reflected "no credit to
either the industry or the govern-
y ment."
- Moderately priced cotton and
n rayon clothing for children, women's
dresses and underthings, and men's
shorts will niot appear in stores for
periods of several weeks to some
months after manufacturers place
their orders for the priority fabric,
Small said.

By The Associated Pressj
WASHINGTON, April 16-Senator
Johnson (D-Colo) demanded today
that War Department "muddle-
heads" drop their "arrogant demand"
for another full year of the draft
and settle for a six-week extension.
He wrote Secretary of War Pat-

terson that six weeks of the draft
beyond May 15 would provide all
the men needed "with something to
spare" and provide replacements
for fathers and combat veterans
still in uniform. He said the bill
passed by the House yesterday


$ .40 per 15-word insertion for
one or two days. (In-
crease of 10c for each
additional five words.)
$1.00 per 15-word insertion for
three or more days. (In-
crease of 25c for each
additional five words.)

The House measure would ban any
further inductions until Oct. 15 at

for nine months, and impose other
restrictions which the services op-
"Instead of driving for a six weeks
extension of the draft, which would
have provided the men for all thei
presently anticipated needs with
something to spare," Johnson wrote
"the War Department arrogantly de-
manded a year's extension of the Se-
lective Service, but their argument
to support it were rainwater weak
The result is the House bill."
The Senate, whose military
committee recommended a one-
year extension with no suspension
of inductions, is expected to act
next week.
There was no immediate respons
from Patterson to Johnson's letter bu
he and other military officials hav
expressed their views on a one-yea
extension in numerous appearance
before Congressional committees.
Patterson told the Senate Militar
Committee March 21 that "this coun
try cannot afford to take chances o
manpower for the army."
On the same day General
Dwight D. Eisenhower asked for
indefinite continuance of the draft
"until the job" of winding up the
war and securing the peace "is
done." It was officially announced
the next day, however, that the
Chief of Staff favored a one-year
