which result to the drive.
The committee is currently con-
ducting a survey of the campus in
order to find out how far its program
has been carried out. As last reported,
all active sororities anc cooperative
houses and six fraternities have un-
dertaken 'the full conservation pro-
gram of waste elimination, decreased
bread consumption, and famine-day
cuts in general consumption. Six
dormitory units have voted to follow
the first two points of the program
and are cutting general consumption
by more careful portioning of meals.
"America is faced with a solemn
obligation . . . " President Truman
recently said concerning the famine
situation. This obligation, he explain-
ed, is to do everything possible to help
feed the starving abroad-to eat less
and to support food relief collections.

average of every two weeks with
pilots from all over Michigan flying
in to various fields at daybreak for
breakfast, general hanger talk, and
the awarding of prizes for the first

Miss Hamilton won a pair of sun
glasses for being the youngest woman

(onstablary Troops
Raid Ships, Find Guns
VILSHOFEN, Germany, May 21-I
iP)-Four thousand hand-picked U.S.
cnstabulary troops swarmed aboard
372 vessels in the Danube River in a
surprise dawn raid today, seized a
huge bag of guns and contraband and
apparently smashed a smuggling ring
headed by remnants of the Hun-
garian Navy.
The boats, mostly Hungarian, were
suspected of smuggling German S.S.
fugitives out of Germany and trading
in black market supplies.
Cases of machine guins, numerous
light arms, radio sets, and quantities
of U.S. Army food, clothing, and
other materials were seized. Boats
containing them were impounded.
Several hundred members of the
once-enemy Hungarian Navy were
believed to be aboard Hungarian na-
val craft among the river boats.
At least 30 of the vessels, including
12 gunboats, formerly were part of
the Hungarian Navy and had fought
with the Germans against the Rus-
sians, Army officials said
Hundreds of persons were removed
for investigation, but the Army did
not disclose whether any S.S. troop-
ers were bagged. The heavily-armed
raiders struck from the shores along
a 45-mile stretch of the Danube from
the Austrian border up to Deggen-
dorf in southeastern Germany.
