Chiang assumed the premiership
eight hours after his brother-in-

in the face of sharp criticism in
the legislative Yuan of his eco-
nomic policies.
Armies Maneuver
With Communist delegates un-
der orders to get out of govern-
ment territory before Wednesday,
and the armies of both factions
maneuvering for decisive battles
on fronts stretching from central
China to the heart of Manchuria,
Chiang this assumed complete
powers in the government at a
time when China's future ap-
peared to be at stake.
Many quarters predicted a
major shakeup in the government,
possibly an anti-Communist coali-
tion including minority parties.
Appointed by Supreme Council
The supreme national defense
council, with Chiang presiding, ap-
pointed him acting premier "until

Chiang already is president of
the Republic.
He is expected to announce
shortly the appointment of Gen.
Chang Chun as vice premier.
Chang returned recently from the
United States, where he obtained
medical treatment, visited Presi-

fondness for ice cream.

Informed sources said that both
Chang and Sun Fo, president of

U. S. Agrees
To Principle
Of Greek Aid
British Request Help
Of American Dollars
By The Associated Press
United States has agreed in prin-
ciple, diplomatic sources said to-
day, to help impoverished Britain
shoulder the load in Greece - a
move which may bring an historic
change in American foreign policy.
The decision was reported made
by the administration after a can-
vass of key congressional figures
notwithstanding opposition voiced
by some congressmen of both
British Note
The American reply to a British
note requesting the action, diplo-
matic informants said, was handed
to Lord Inverchapel, the British
ambassador, at a 25-minute con-
ference at the State Department
this morning with Undersecretary
of -State Dean Acheson, held at
the latter's summons.
The informants described the
U.S. reply as "favorable in prin-
ciple." It is understood to be con-
ditioned upon Britain's retaining
her 10,000 troops in Greece to help
uphold the government, with the
United States - subject to con-
gressional approval - helping to
bear most of the cost.
The undertaking may entail ad-
vancing some $250,000,000 this
year, by authoritative estimate,
with further but smaller outlays
Next Step Up to Truman
A next step apparently would
be for 'President Truman to make
public the program. He would
have an opportunity to do this
next Thursday, when he issched-
uled to deliver an address at Waco,
Tex.~, en route home' from Meico.
Officials have described it as a
"major speech" on both domestic
and foreign affairs. It already
has been drafted.
For the United States to step
directly into the internal affairs
of Greece would constitute a de-
pa rteure from long-standing
American poicy, and apparently
would be designed to bulwark
Britain in a stand against the
spread of R u ssi a n influence
throughout Southern Europe.
The United States has interested
itself in the past in the affairs of
European countries, but this has
been confined largely to relief and
to insistence that some liberated
and ex-enemy countries hold free
The proposal brought outcries
today from Senator Edwin C.

Sigler Renews
A ttach on WA YD
LANSING, March 1--(P)-Gov-
ernor Sigler called communism a
"serious menace" in a radio
speech tonight and promised anew
to carry on a fight against it.
The governor, speaking on his
"Your Governor" program, re-
sumed his attack on the American
Youth for Democracy.
He said a "great many" of the
AYD's members would have "noth-
ing to do with it if the organiza-
tion admitted that it is, in reality,

the Young Communist League."
Sigler said about 70 nationwide
organizations were dominated or
influenced by communists.
"Let us bring the communist
out in the open," he said. "He will
not like it because he cannot carry
on his deceit and trickery in the
light of day."

Student veterans must pick up
their absence report forms from
the station designated by the
school or college in which they are
enrolled, Robert S. Waldrop, di-
rector of the Veterans Service Bu-

The reason for this requirement
is that each school and college
has only enough forms for veter-
ans enrolled in that particular
part of the University, Waldrop
said. However,acompleted forms

Many veterans re sfiling incor-

are not acceptable, Waldrop said.
Cards filed by veterans who
have C-numbers but don't record
it on the form are thrown out, ac-
cording to Waldrop, since the
cards are sorted, tabulated, and
recorded according to C-number.
However, a separate list is kept of
the names of veterans who do not
have C-numbers.

Engineers Initiated Grading ,of Faculty

Student grading of the literary
college faculty, recently approved
and now being worked out by a
special committee, has a success-
ful precedent in the engineering:
The Committee on Coordination
in Teaching initiated a faculty
grading system for the engineering
college in May 1940. At that time

"No purpose would be served by
a faculty evaluation at this time,"
he said, "because a considerable
number of our instructors are new.
The results of grading now would

the future."

The committee found no corre-

course was found, however, to be
directly proportional to the quali-
