PRICE FIVE CENTS

Cramming into every seat in the Ferry Field stands, a record crowd
of nearly 7,000 fans saw the World Champion Detroit Tigers whip the
Michigan baseball nine, 6-1, yesterday in an exhibition contest.
Scoring their lone run in the first inning, the Wolverines looked as if
they might be on the way to upsetting the Bengals, but after being hand-

Final action was taken last night
by the City Council on the long con-

The new ordinance raises license
fees to 50 dollars but excludes any

its Famine Relief Drive fund col-

Funds from the campus drive, which

ization, will be turned over to UNRRA
as part of the student body's con-

of the 800,000,000 people in famine

Food Conservation Essential
"The Famine Committee's pro-

in order to help make food supplies

"University expects to do its share
in seeing that the number of veter-
ans who can't go to college because
of the housing shortage will be kept
at a minimum."

dents will enroll here during the Fall

It is anticipated that federal agen-
cies will continue to help the Uni-
versity meet its housing problem.
State educational officials are pre-
paring a plan for deployment of
veterans to smaller, less-crowded in-
stitutions in Michigan. One of the
major roadblocks of such a plan,
still to be by-passed is that of larger
institutions accepting credits from
the smaller schools.
Vice-President Niehuss said all
Michigan colleges are doing, every-
thing humanly possible to prepare
for record enrollments, so that no
eligible Michigan boy or girl will be
unable to enter college somewhere in

University sophomores and seniors
will compare their academic prowess
with students of 70 American colleges
this week by participating in a na-
tion-wide profile testing program.
Representative colleges all over
America are cooperating with the
Carnegie Foundation for the Ad-
vancement of Teaching in the two-
year survey to discover educational
"blind spots" among college students,
according to Dr. Robert Travers, as-
sistant director of the project.
Dr. Travers, who came from New
York to observe the testing here, said
that preliminary surveys at a few
of the nation's colleges have indicat-
ed that students show a surprisingly
small amount of progress after their
sophomore year except in their field
Outside their major field, students
have displayed a "very marked" ten-
dency to be stationary in gaining new
information, the Doctor said.
University sophomores will be re-
tested when they are seniors to find
if this lack of growth is general in
the nation's schools, he explained.
Dr. Travers predicted the final re-
port on college students' academic
ability, probably won't appear until
1949, but he said interim reports
would be made available to give the
University an idea where its students
stand in relation to other colleges.

Lewig, Operators Say
Negotiations Are Futile
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, May 20-Govern-
ment officials appeared convinced to-
day that federal seizure provides the
last hope of keeping the coal mines
operating after Saturday, but they
lacked assurance from John L. Lew-
is that the miners would stay on the

Believe Seizure Coming
One top government man concern-
ed with labor indicated that he be-
lieved seizure was coming but said
an exact date was not yet decided.
Another agreed he could see no other
alternative open to the government
which could keep the mines open
after the present two week truce- ex-
pires Saturday night.
Lewis, at a conference with Presi-
dent Truman Sunday, was reported
to have informed the President he
lacked authority, without word from
his 250-man policy committee, to
commit the miners to work for the
Negotiate With Lewis
If Lewis and his policy committee
agree to work for the government the
federal officials probably will have
to negotiate the next contract with
Lewis, as former Secretary of Inter-
ior Harold L. Ickes did in 1943 as
Solid Fuels Administrator.
Operators feel, it was reported by
a government official, that they may
have a better chance of getting price
relief for whatever concessions even-
tually are made to Lewis, if the gov-
ernment negotiates the contract.
Some operators estimate that Lew-

he finally outlines them, might add

A panel of five faculty members

of the renewed literary college series
on vocational guidance.
The panel will be composed of

The panel members will discuss op-

preparation for teaching, financial
rewards and satisfactions derived
from teaching and the different
branches of teaching for which train-
ing is offered in the University.
A question-and-answer period will
