Penalties Set
For Football
Ticket Fraud
Violators To Lose
GanmeA dmissions
The students who kept football
tickets obtained through "false
representation" last semester will
not receive student tickets next
The University Disciplinary
Committee announced today that
the students found guilty of in-
tentional fraud for refusing to co-
operate with the Student Legisla-
ture redistribution of tickets ob-
tained in sections 24-28 through
fraud or error will be depirived of
student admission tickets for two
football seasons.
Following the recommendation
of the Men's Judiciary Council
that clemency be granted to the
students who cooperated with the
Council hearings, the Committee
decided that the 27 underclassmen
who pleaded guilty to the charge
will be deprived of ticket privileges
for one season.
The complete number of stu-
dents who will receive the two
season penalty has not yet been
determined, Erich A. Walter, D~i-
rector of the Office of Student Af-
fairs, said, because records are
still being checked in some cases.
Five of the 201 students indict-
ed by ,the Men's Judiciary Council
I with evidence obtained through a
check of ticket stubs and regis-
tration coupons have not yet ap-
peared before the Council to an-
swer the charge against them.
Talbot Honey, chairman of the
F Council, said yesterday that these
students will be denied ticket priv-
leges for two seasons if they do not
appear by March 14.

UAW To Seek
Pay Increase,
40-Hour Week
Date fr Presenting
Demands Not Told
13y The Associated Press
DETROI, March 8-The CIO
United Auto Workers announced
today that it will ask a guaran-
teed 40-hour week and a 23112 cent
hour wage increase for an esti-
mated 225,000 employes of Gener-
al Motors Corp.
"Ti ., ! v.t Iv wage proposal ,I
the union contemplates that when
an employe is called in to work
in any one week he shall be
guaranteed 40 hours pay for that
week," a Union statement said.
The present contract between
GM and the UAW-CIO permits
either party to request negotia-
tions on "economic issues" as
early as March 19.
The Union did not indicate when
its new demands will be presented
to the corporation.
The proposals were formulated
at a two-day conference of UAW-
CIO leaders from General Motors
plants throughout the nation here
this week.
Delegates also approved de-
mands for an employer-financ-
ed social security plan, an old
age retirement program and a
wage equalization fund, all part
of the international union's
wage program.
The UAW-CIO also will ask a
revised vacation pay schedule,
providing from 24 hours pay an-
nually for employes with six
months to one year seniority to
144 hours pay for those with over
eight years' seniority.
The delegates also instructed
their negotiators to propose that
General Motors participate in
the "establishment of an indus-
t r y - w i d e labor-management
committee to study ways and
means of achieving a guaran-
teed annual wage in the auto-
mobile industry."
President Walter P. Reuther of
the UAW-CIO, issued the follow-
ing statement relative to the 40-
hour week demand:
"A guaranteed weekly wage of
40 hours pay is the first step in
laying a sound basis for a guaran-
teed annual wage. In the last
eight or nine months General Mo-
tors workers in many plants
throughout the country have suf-

Sure, Granny was a good cook.
But Willow Village housewives fig-

to go about it.
Faced with the possibility of
having to resort to coal stoves for

use of elect'rical appliances have
always been on the books, but un-
til recently officials have been
content to look the other way.

Present Views
House Committee
Studies Subsistence
Special to The Daily
University student veterans testi-
fied yesterday before the House
Committee on Veterans Affairs re-
garding presenttsubsistence pay-
ments under the G.I. Bill of
Appearing before the commit-
tee were Bill Haydon, president of
the University Veterans Organiza-
tion and Jane Schacht, treasurer
of the Michigan Women Veterans
Organization, who presented their
views regarding subsistence pay-
Testifying one hour and 15 min-
utes, Haydon told the committee
that a campus survey showed 69
per cent of working students felt
necessary outside work impaired
their studies.
After the committee hearings,
Haydon saw Earl Michiner, Michi-
gan Representative, who said that
he feels sure some subsistence in-
crease would be granted. Haydon
also talked to Senator Homer Fer-
guson (Rep., Mich.), who ex-
pressed surprise at the high cost
of food at the University.

Although he didn't actually need
his shaving brush, Allhouse car-
ried it with him for luck when he
went overseas to the Philippines,
and he claims it saw him through
many close calls. His most hair-
raising brush with death was the
time he was ambushed by a fer-
ocious native and came within a
whisker of being hacked up with
a large bolo knife.
After the Spanish American war
ended, Allhouse barely had time
to begin shaving and get married
before World War I came along.
This time he enlisted in the Army,
and astounded the supply sergeant
at the induction center by refus-
ing to accept a new shaving brush.
"You government fellows gave me
one last time," he explained.
The shaving brush crossed its
second ocean when Allhouse went
to France with the AEF and there,
he says, it brought him safely
through his second war. The
brush's luck later failed him when
he was walking down a street in
Richmond, Va., in 1921. Just as
he was passing in front of an
apartment house, a piano broke
loose from two moving men, rolled
down nine steps and hit Allhouse,
breaking his back.
Allhouse has been constantly
using the same shaving brush

Debate Seen
Ont Greek Aid
WASHTNGTON, March 8-(,P)-
Rumblings of a prospective debate
over America's role in Southern
Europe sounded today as the ad-
ministration gathered last-minute
reports on Britain's position in
preparation for a Monday show-
down on its course.
Word from the White House
was that President Truman prob-
ably will announce then, after a
conference with 15 Congressional
leaders, his procedure for dealing
with the Greek situation-perhaps
a message to a joint session of
Congress or a radio broadcast to
the nation.

The terrorists attacked Brit-
ish military headquarters in
Citrus House and the Sarona
military camp in the all-Jewish
coastal city and staged a simul-
taneous assault on the police
station at Jaffa, a few miles to
the south.
Tel Aviv, under the heavy thumb
of military rule since the bloody
Irgun Zvai Leumi attacks last

Britain To File
alestne Issue
-(P)-- The controversial Pales-
tine problem was expected today
to be filed formally with the
United Nations by Great Britain
as a result of an American request
for clarification.
Exact .time of filing and the
wording of the document awaited
instructions from London and
from Foreign Secretary Ernest
Bevin in Moscow, British sources
here said.
Because of transmission diffi-
culties and the week-end lull in
government business, it was indi-
cated that the explosive holy land
problem would not reach the UN
officially for several days.
The British delegation here has
held in readiness for some time
the draft of a communication pre-
senting the case to Secretary-
General Trygve Lie, but it was
learned today that this paper
might now be revised in the light
of developments.

All student veterans must file

opinion that campus beauties were

that time. When groups of stu-
