The coordination of plans for saving food in student residences and for
participation in European relief will be considered at an open meeting of
delegates from campus residences and organizations at 4:30 p.m. Thursday
in Lane Hall.
Representatives of dormitories, fraternities, sororities, League houses
and interested organizations will discuss such proposals as a weekly cam-

FIELDING H. YOST, Michigan head football coach from 1901 to 1929
and athletic director from 1929 to 1941, will celebrate his 75th birthday
at his home in Ann Arbor, today.
FieldingYost, Mr. Mieluiaii'
Observes 75th Birthday oda y
Michigan's "Grand Old Man", Fielding H. Yost, will observe his seventy-
fifth birthday today at his home not far from the site where his teams
made football history.
Although Yost has not been in the best of condition, he maintains
that "there's still a lot of kick in the old horse." The living spirit that
sparked within him when he piloted the famous point-a-minute elevens
is as strong as ever.

Engelke Agrees
To Talk Against
Health Proposal
Answers Statewide
AVC Plea for Forum
A statewide appeal for opposition
speakers in the American Veterans
Committee forum on the National
Health Bill was answered last night
by Dr. Otto Engelke of the county
health department.
Climaxes Canvass
Dr. Engelke's acceptance of the
unwanted role of attacking the Mur-
ray-Wagner-Dingell Bill climaxed a
canvass of medical men and medical
societies throughout the state. Op-
ponents of the bill kept mum or re-
fused point-blank to speak at the
forum at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow in Ann
Arbor High School.
Arguing the affirmative will be Dr.
Sidney Norwick of the school of pub-
lic health. Prof. William Haber of
the economics department is mod-
Seek Opposition Speakers
Ed Woodison, public relations di-
rector of the AVC chapter, said he
has sought opposition speakers with-
out success from the State Medical
Society at Lansing, the Washtenaw
County Medical Association, the
Wayne County Medical Society and
the Detroit office of the American
Medical Association. All of these or-
ganizations turned him down, Wood-
ison said, when they were informed it
was a ptublic debate.
The Detroit office of the AMA
agreed to provide a speaker, but only
on the grounds that the opposition
speaker be removed and their speaker
could be uncontested, according to
Some Plead Ignorance
He said the AVC has contacted 20
members of the dental, medical and
teaching professions in Detroit, Lan-
sing, Bay City, Milan and Ann Arbor
in their search for a man opposed
to the legislation. "For one reason or
another they all declined," Woodison
declared. "Some pleaded ignorance,
a few prior engagements, and the bal-
ance were just plain 'unwilling'!"
One Ann Arbor dentist bitterly de-
nounced the bill, labeling it"a dirty
piece of political conniving," but he
reused to speak because he said, "the
thing is over 70 pages long, and be-
sides I haven't read it yet ."
New Medical
Course Planed
Anouncement of a niqu med-
ical school curric ilum, which woukld
enable practicing physicians to con-
tinue their education, is expected to-
day from the University School of
The plan, expected to become ef-
fective this summer, would include
clinical facilities in approved hospit-
als throughout the state with doctors
rotating between the School of Med-
icine and the hospitals during periods
of graduate study.
When approved, the project will be
the first of its kind in the nation.
A coordinator will be appointed
and attached to the Department of
Postgraduate Medicine at the School
to promote cooperation between par-
ticipating hospitals and the Medical
School, it was learned.

Although several suggestions have
already been submitted, Joyce Siegan,
president of the Student Religious As-
sociation, urged the presidents of stu-
dent residences to hold house meet-
ings to decide upon instructions for
their delegates. The purpose of the
open meeting, she pointed out, is to
coordinate and act upon proposals for
food programs rather than to origi-
nate them.
The Student Religious Association
is holding the meeting, Miss Siegan
said, because of numerous requests
that some campus organization spon-
sor such a movement. The new stu-
dent government, which would ideal-
ly take over this responsibility, she
added, will not be sufficiently organiz-
ed to do so for some time.

Vital to Peace
Special to The Daily
CHICAGO, April 29 - In a key-
note speech at the conference on for-
eign student problems which five Uni-
versity delegates are attending inChi-
cago, Herschell Brickell, chief of the
State Department's Division of In-
ternational Exchange of Persons, de-
clared that there is no other way to
peace than international understand-
ing through the foreign student
The proposed U. S. loan to Brit-
ain, he revealed, includes a ten mil-
lion dollar grant to send American
students abroad to study. The pro-
posed loans to Fra-ce and Russia, he
said, contain similar provisions.
U. S. institutions have an obliga-
tion, asserted Provost Monroe E.
Deutsch, of the University of Cali-
fornia, to "preserve our scholastic
standards, and any limitation of for-
eign students should be, in general,
limitation of admission on a qualita-
tive basis."
Tomorrow morning the delegates,
numbering more than 150 represen-
tatives of the nation's leading col-
leges and universities, will consider
selection, admission and placement
of foreign students.

Texas 'U' Seeks
Aid in OPA ight
Other colleges apparently can't
wait for today's election of Michi-
gan student government.
A telegram from the president
of the University of Texas student
assembly was sent yesterday to
the "Student Association, Univer-
sity of Michigan", urging Michigan
students to fllow Texas in peti-
tioning the Senate to retain OPA
intact in order "to keep our veter-
ans in school".
Several candidates last night in-
dicated their willingness to act
upon the suggestion immediately.
Students Will
Elect Leaders
To Congress
Voters Must Ballot
For 10 Ialndidates
The first campus congressional
election in three years today and to-
morrow will fill 18 seats in the post-
war Student Congress, newly created
governing body of the Congress-Cab-
inet constitution.
Sixty-two students are contesting
for seats in the election which will
establish the campus' first student
government since the war-time death
of the Student Senate in 1943.
Must Select 10
Balloting for the first time under
the Hare system of proportional rep-
resentation, student voters must se-
lect at least 10 candidates for their
ballot to be counted, Men's Judiciary
Council, which is running the elec-
tion, ruled last night. The ruling,
which follows a suggestion from the
political science department, will
make more certain that this will be
a representative election, according
to the Council.
The polls will be open from 8:45
a.m. to 3 p.m. except for Barbour
Gymnasium and the Engineering
Vote by Numbers Ruled
Voters must indicate choices by
number and not. by check mark, or
the ballot will be invalidated, Har-
ry Jackson, president of the Men's
Judiciary Council, announced yes-
Arch, where they will close at 5:15
p.m. for the benefit of students with
late classes. Ident cards will be re-
quired of all voters.
Poling Places Listed
Campus poling places will be lo-
cated in front of Alumni Memorial
Hall, in the Angel Hall lobby and
basement, center of the diagonal, in
front of the Economics Building, in
the School of Music Building, at the
Engineering Arch, Waterman Gym-
nasium, at Couzins Hall, in the Med-
ical School and at Hutchins Hall of
the Law School.
Men's Judiciary Council last night
emphasized its intention to enforce
the rule which prohibits campaign-
ing within 50 feet of the ballot box.
Violation of this rule, they warned,
may result in cancelation of the can-
didate's votes. Council members will
police each polling place to guarantee
that this provision is complied with.
Split Ballot Permitted
It is not necessary for voters to se-
lect every member of the two slates
that are running. These groups were
placed at the bottom of the ballot for
convenience only.
In addition to policing the polls,
Men's Judiciary will take further
measures to insure the honesty of
the election. Ballot boxes will not be
opened until the election is over
Wednesday night to avoid tampering,
they said.-

Committee To Count Returns
A special committee will count the
votes at that time. It is made up of
executive groups from the Union and
League in addition to Men's Judiciary
members. An instructor in the polit-
ical science department will stand by
at the counting of the ballots in an
unofficial advisory capacity.

Byrnes put forward the American
proposal as the four-power foreign
ministers council placed the whole
German question on its agenda and
opened negotiations on the disposal of
the Italian Empire.
Byrnes, supported by Great Britain
and France, sought to insert the pro-
posed mutual assistance pact in the
conference agenda, but V. M. Molotov,
Russian foreign minister, objected. A
draft of the pact was contained in a
secret document sent to Britain,
France and Russia several months

charges that Franco Spain is a men-
ace to world peace.
The Council thus accomplished the

CHUNGKING, April 29 - General
Marshall's last-ditch efforts to end
the Manchurian warfare failed today
when Generalissimo Chiang Kai-
Shek refused stiffened demands by
the Chinese Communists.
Well-informed pro-government
sources said Chiang had rejected the
latest truce program because it would
leave the Communists in possession
of battle-won Changchun and a ma-
jor portion of Manchuria.

The death of Capt. Robert A. (Bob)
Bartlett, famed skipper and polar ex-
plorer, means a loss that will be
"widely felt, especially in Ann Arbor,"
William H. Hobbs, professor emeritus
of the geology department declared
in an interview yesterday.
Died Sunday
Bartlett died Sunday at the Colum-
bia Presbyterian Medical Center in
New York. He was 70 years old.
Bartlett was well known here, Prof.
Hobbs said, not only for Is several'
lectures, but because he had nuner-

The University's first Greenland
expedition went-North in 1926 aboard
Bartlett's famous schooner, the "Mor-
rissey." After landing the expedition
near the Arctic Circle, the "Morrissey~
proceeded up Baffin Bay and was
wrecked near Northumberland Isl-
land. The ship finally got off again
in a badly damaged condition and the
University expedition was taken a-
board for the return trip,
Treacherous Voyage
All sorts of mishaps, includ ing 18
days of perpetually stormy weather,
accompanied the return. After one
night when the "Morrissey" nearly
lost her masts, or "sticks" as
Bartlett called them, Prof. Hobbs re-
ports that Bartlett announced to
members of the expedition th'at "if
any of you are on intimate terms with
the Almighty, you'd better get busy."
Commenting on Bartlett's record
as an explorer, Prof. lobbs declared
that he broke evcry record except

PARIS, April 29--Secretary of State James F. Byrnes said tonight he
had proposed a four-power. 25-year mutlasstnc pact to insure the
demilitarization of Germany.
If ratified by the United States Senate, and the other three participating
powers - France, Great Britain and Russia - the pact would commit the
United States to participate in European security with American armed
forces for at least a quarter of a century after the end of the present military
occupation of Germany. -

Even now "Mr. Meechigan" is look-
ing forward to the Michigan-Army
spectacle which will beplae- d at the
Michigan Stadium this fall. The pow-
erful Army .iuggernaut isn't exactly
strange to Yost for he helped coach
three previous squads from this serv-
ice school.
Attending Ihe Unlriversity of West
Virginia in 1894, Yost was a member
of Sigma Chi fraternity. When Col.

Racial By-Law
Zeta Phi Eta Chapter
To Petition National
Local members of Zeta Phi Eta,
national professional speech arts fra-
ternity for women, announced yester-
day that they are campaigning to
abolish a national by-law that allows
them to pledge white women only.
National Convention
Outlining the chapter's action,
Joyce Siegap, president, said that
the local chapter has written letters
to national officers and to 27 chapters
asking them to consider abolishing
the clause, and will introduce this
proposal at the mational convention
at Chicago in August.
Letters to other chapters stated:
"We believe in the dignity of the
human personality regardless of race,
creed or color; and as members of a
professional fraternity are willing to
judge prospective members on the
basis of their merits. We further be-
lieve that those who have speech
ability, should use that ability to
eliminate the intolerance and hatred
that constantly work against the
kind of world that we want to see
Ask Discussions
Zeta Phi Eta members ask that
other professional and social fra-
ternities on campus hold open dis-
cussions to consider abolishing dis-
crimination in choosing members.
They'pointed out that their fraternity
depended on friendship and social
compatibility as did social fraterni-
"It is clear that neither members
of the Vermount chapter of Alpha Zi
Delta, nor we, can, eliminate intol-
erance," Miss Siegan said, "but we
can eliminate the constitutional guar-
antees of this intolerance, and so can
other fraternities."

Starvation conditions in China af-
fecting dental decay were described
by Dr. R. Gordon Agnew yesterday
at the sixth annual postgraduate pro-
gram of the American Academy of
Periodontology, sponsored by the Kel-
logg Institute of Postgraduate Den-
tis try.
Declaring that China's food short-
age is even more extreme in some
areas than conditions in Europe, Dr.
Agnew, professor of pathology in the
Dental School at West China Union
University, pointed out that the Unit-
ed States can help relieve the situa-
tion by meeting the immediate need
for foods, drugs and the rehabilita-
tion of industry and by helping in
training new leaders.
More milk for adults was advocated
by Dr. Dorothea Radusch of the Uni-
versity of Minnesota, who also spoke
at the meeting. Dr. Radusch declared
that adults should have almost the
same amount of calcium in their diets
as children, "The average person
should have about three measuring
cups of milk daily," she said, adding
that the amount of calcium in 20
servings of fruits and vegetables gen-
erally is not equal to the amount of
calcium contained in one pint of
