PSYCHOLOGICAL STUDY:
Gilbert Describes Interviews
Wih German -War Criminals
By BOB BALL
Dr. Gustave M. Gilbert, prominent psychologist who lectured at
Rackham yesterday, was the first person to decide that it would be
profitable to make psychological studies of the top Nazi war criminals.
In an interview yesterday he explained how his job as an Army
intelligence officer, interviewing German prisoners, aroused his curi-
osity as to the motives and moral values of the leading Nazis slated
for trial at Nuernberg. He applied for the position of prison psycholo-
gist, and "though the Army was slightly taken aback," he got the job.

Local Counmeil
Will Continue
FEPC Fight
Although the Michigan Supreme
Court has declared the Fair Em-
ployment Practices Act illegal,
"the fight to make Michigan the
fifth state in the country with an
FEPC will continue more vigorous-
ly," according to George Antonof-
sky, chairman of the Ann Arbor
FEPC Council.
Branding the Supreme Court
action "outrageous," Antonofsky
said yesterday "we do not believe
that the FEPC initiatory petition
with more than 200,000 state-wide
signatures can be so easily ignored
and that the will of such a sub-
stantial number of people will yet
conquer."
Sen. Stanley Nowak (Dem. De-
troit) said yesterday that he
would reintroduce within a few
days a new FEPC bill to replace one
the Supreme Court killed Monday,
according to an Associated Press
report. Sen Nowak said his bill
would be the same as the previous
FEPC measure except that it
would contain a title, according to
the Associated Press dispatch.

In this role he remained at
Nuernberg throughout the trial,
holding daily conversations with
the ex-bigwigs of the Third Reich.
This day to day study, aside from
giving him the enviable chance
of telling Goering what he
thought of him, turned up many
sidelights on the character of the
men who once ran Germany, he
said.
Daily Conversations
As Dr. Gilbert saw them, the
prisoners were nothing but a
group of double-crossing, back-
biting hypocrite who tried in ev-
ery way to shift the blame to each
other.
Commenting on them individu-
ally, Dr. Gilbert characterized
Goering as being "a morphine ad-'
dict. Tried to appear the jovial
innocent while browbeating other
defendents into protecting him."
Individual Comments
Hess: "A hysterical neurotic.
His lapses of memory were genu-
ine."
Ribbentrop: "Cowering little
weakling who seemed to have no
mind of his own."
Streicher: "A perverted little
worm."
In summing up his findings at
Nuernberg, Dr. Gilbert placed ma-
jor blame for the atrocities on
the vicious propagandists of Nazi-
ism and urged that Americans
must be wary of that same sort of
hate-spreading.

World News
Roundup-
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, March 4-Rep.1
Thomas (Rep.-N.J.) t o 1 d thea
House today that "through our
coddling policy of giving Russia
our patented knowledge she may
well be on her way to discovery"
of many atomic bomb secrets.
.Thomas made his report as
Chairman of the House Commit-
tee on Un-American Activities. He
blasted at what he called the "le-
gal espionage" system by which
he said Russians were able to get
hundreds of thousands of copies
of industrial, chemical and mili-
tary patents.
WASHINGTON, March 4 -
The Post Off-ice department,
seeking to overcome an unex-
pected $287,697,250 deficit, asked
Congress today to authorize a
general increase in postal rates
except for first class letters.
SHANGHAI, March 4 - The
Chinese government, beset by civil
war and economic troubles at
home and by uprisings in Formosa
that one observer termed a revo-
lution, tightened its press policy
today.
Foreign correspondents feared
censorship of the Chinese press
might follow and some predicted
complete suppression of criticism
of the government.
WASHINGTON, March 4-The
House, temporarily side-tracking
a GOP drive to slash President
Truman's $37,500,000,000 budget,
today approved a $10,000,000 ex-
penditure which had not been re-
quested by the President himself.
Overriding pleas by Rep. Dirk-
sen (Rep.-Ill.) that the economy
line be held, the House voted 243
to 110 to authorize the expendi-
ture of the new millions for im-
porting foreign farm laborers.

Bidault Says
Treaty Aimed
At Germany
Provisions Subject
To UN Charter Law
By The Associated Press
DUNKERQUE, France, March
4-A treaty binding France and
Great Britain to act jointly against
any possible future aggression by
Germany and pledging the' two
countries to a 50-year alliance was
signed here today by foreign min-
sters Ernest Bevin and Georges
Bidault.
The pact also calls for mutual
action by France and Great Brit-
ain in the event Germany defaults
in any of the economic obligations
imposed in her surrender or in the
forthcoming German peace settle-
ment.
Economics Security
The two countries, under the
treaty's terms, also will 'take all
possible steps to promote the pros-
perity and economic security" of
each other.
All the pact's provisions, the text
stated explicitly, are subject to the
provisions of the charter of the
United Nations.
Bevin and Bidault affixed their
signatures to the pact in the tiny
Dunkerque sub-prefecture build-
ing, the largest' structure still
standing in the devastated city
where, in 1940, the Nazi army in-
flicted on Britain her greatest de-
feat of World War II.
"On the occasion of the sign-
ing of this treaty, the foreign
ministers of Great Britain and
France express the hope that
these guarantees will soon be com-
pleted by the conclusion of a four-
power treaty laying down condi-
tions for the disarmament and de-
militarization of Germany and the
methods of putting them into ef-
fect."
Not A Western Bloc
Bevin, en route to the Moscow
conference of the Big Four For-
eign Ministers' Council, said be-
fore the signing:
"I think that Russia realizes
that this treaty is not a western
bloc but only a step in the pattern
of universal peace.
'We are now realizing that peace
is really individual and must be
re-established that way.
Bidault has announced that the
same treaty provisions would be
offered to "the other great allies"
and to the Netherlands, Belgium,
Poland and Czechoslovakia. The
treaty also has been described as a
possible forerunner of a Big-Four
pact such as that proposed last
year by former U. S. Secretary of
State James F. Byrnes to cement
allied accord in relations with
Germany.
Marshall Asks
Ratification of
Peace Pacts
WASHINGTON, Mar. 4-()-
Secretary of State George C. Mar-
shall and James F. Byrnes testi-
fied today that quick approval of
peace treaties with Italy, Hungary,
Bulgaria and Roumania would
speed removal of hundreds of
thousands of occupational troops
that the United States, England
and Russia still maintain in Eu-
rope.
After former secretary of state
Byrnes had answered questions of
the Senate foreign relations com-

mitteefrndea rtwohurcair-
man Vandenberg (Rep.-Mich.)
told reporters:
"I see no substantial congres-
sional opposition (to ratification
of the treaties) but I do not like
to return a jury verdict until the
jury has had a chance to hear all
the evidence."
Treaty Ratification
Secretary Marshall stressed the
"importance of prompt ratifica-
tion" of these first postwar treat-
ies as a "start on the road back
to peace."
"The treaties were not dictated
by thi T~nita d sate" Mrsvhall

tion of that unit. The $900,000
fund for the maternity hospital
was crossed off the ledger.
Chemistry Building
Bishop declared one faction in
the legislature sought to stop all
institutional building and another
to complete all buildings now
started.
Funds for completion of the
Business Administration school,
the engineering building addition,
and the chemistry building are
provided in the compromise allo-
cation.
Keeping Promise
Bishop said the committee was
"keeping the promise" of the last
legislature to give Michigan State
College and the University of
Michigan each $3,200,000 to com-
plete parts of their programs, thus
providing M.S.C. with a total pro-
gram of $7,000,000 and the Uni-
versity $8,000,000.
The committee allowed a $235,-
000 increase in alloments for mis-
celaneops state institutions, an
increase of $274,000 for the oth-
er state colleges and held the hos-
pital group to the same appropri-
ation allowed last year, with some
changes within the group.
The committee stopped progress
on the proposed worthwhile state.
hospital with a $565,000 grant for
site and some utilities, and ap-
proved funds for the addition of
1,400 new beds at four other in-
stitutions.
19 Students
Face Council
Hearing Clears 12
Of Ticket Charges
Nineteen of the 27 students giv-
en a last chance to answer the
charge that they obtained and
kept fraudulent football tickets
appeared before the Men's Judi-
ciary Council yesterday in the first
of two hearings.
Twelve of the students were
able to present evidence that they
had sufficient credit hours to
entitle them to upperclass seating.
Records of five others who pleaded
innocent on the same grounds will
be checked to determine their
class standing, Talbot Honey,
chairman of the council, said. Two
students pleaded guilty.
Penalties for students found
guilty will be recommended to the
University Disciplinary Commit-
tee, Honey said.
Yesterday's hearing was held for
students who did not appear at the
Dec. 2 trial of those charged with
falsifying their registration cou-
pons to obtain upper-class football
tickets. A second hearing will be
held by the Council from 3 to 5
p.m. Thursday in the Union.

State Finance Proposal
May Curb 'U' Building
Compromise Would Hold Up Completion
Of General Service Building, Other Units
LANSING, Mar. 4-(I')-A $37,903,000 compromise state building
program that would delay completion of the General Service Building
at the University of Michigan and other proposed units throughout
the state was sponsored today by the senate finance committee.
Senator Otto W. Bishop said that although the compromise calls
for an increase of $6,903,000 over previously appropriated grants of
$31,000,000 some projects will have to be disbanded.
The plan allows the University only $1,000,000 for the General
Service building. Estimates of building costs for the unit are near
$3,000,000. The proposal also limits funds for a new power house to
$525,000 and will prevent comple-t

AVC Sets Up

Representatives Will
Check Fuses, Circuits
Willow Run's AVC gave full ap-
proval last night to a special com-
mittee's proposal that one person
from each housing structure be
given full responsibility for replac-
ing burnt fuses and reporting
abuses in electrical circuits
throughout Willow Village.
The proposal, made by the AVC
chapter in conjunction with var-
ious independent citizens' groups
at the village, came as a tenants'
remedy to the problems which
precipitated the recent village-
wide investigation of ,the 'uses to

will be submitted this morning to
Charles H. Annala, FPHA direc-
tor at Willow Run. The resolu-
tion provides that the represent-

one housing structure, will replace
all burnt fuses with 15-ampere.
fuses. They are to seek the caus-
es of malfunctioning of the cir-
cuits with a view toward educat-
ing their fellow tenants in the
more careful use of appliances.
The representatives will also re-
port anyone breaking into the
fuse boxes and must indicate to
authorities any excessive fuse
burning.
According to Walt Hoffman,
AVC chairman at the village, the
resolution would eliminate the
chief grievance encountered in the
situation, that of the great lapse
of time before replacement of
burnt fuses by maintenance per-
