Power Talks
Study of Problem
Set for Next Week
Long-pending plans for a meet
ing of Willow Village tenantl
with FPHA electrical and safet
engineers to discuss tenant-pro
posed remedies for pressing electri
cal power difficulties will be co-
summated "some time next weed ;
when the meeting will take plac;
it was announced yesterday.
The disclosure came from Wil
low Run's housing director Charles
P. Annala, who added that invita
tions to this closed meeting had
already been dispatched to th
representatives of interested
groups who put forth the sugges
tions in question. He added tha
after the difficulties have bee
thrashed out, it's quite possible
that revised policies will come into
effect regarding electrical usag
at the village.
In reference to the University'
announcement Friday, that rec
ommendations will be presente(
to the FPHA for the alleviation o
electrical difficulties, Annala said
that all such proposals would cer
tainly be welcome. The University
has been studying the situation
with a view toward determining
what may be done to add to the
village residents' comforts along
these lines. Electrical experts
have been employed and methods
sought to increase the power load
at the village.
These developments spring
from recent alleged abuses of vil-
lage electrical circuits resulting
in overloading of the lines anc
excessive burning of fuses.
FEPC Bill Is .
'Defective' .r
State representative Louis G
Christman told the Ann Arboi
FEPC Council yesterday that he
could not support the fair em-
ployment practices act before the
legislature as it now stands.
Meeting with him were represen-
tatives of various civic and church
groups including George N. An-
tonofsky, graduate student at the
University and chairman of the
Ann Arbor FEPC ouncil, and Mrs.
William Clark Trow, who repre-
sented the American Association
of University Women.
Representative Christman in-
dicated that he supports the prin-
ciple of fair employment practices,
but that he believes that the bill
as it now stands is defective. "It
doesn't contain enough protec-
tion for small business, and its
provisions, including a state-wide
educational campaign, would prove
too costly for the state at this
time," he said.
While he 'maintained that the,
bill in its present form would
prove cntrary to state judicial
practices, Christman acknowl-
edged that if the FEPC issue were
placed upon the ballot immediate-
ly, it would pass. "People let their
natural sense of fairness get the
best of them, and they don' realize
what the bill really means," he

Ministers Told
Bidault Says France
Would Absorb Exiles
By The Associated Press
MOSCOW, ,March 15-France
proposed tonight a startling mod-
ern day exodus of Germans from
their defeated fatherland in order
to lower the German war poten-
tial, and Secretary Marshall said
the plan struck at the heart of
the German problem.
Foreign minister Georges Bi-
dault told the Foreign Ministers
Council that the allies should un-
dertake an organized reduction
of the population through emigra-
tion from a thickly-settled Reich
and said France was prepared to
take the revolutionary step of ab-
sorbing Germans into her own

He said that France considered
the German population, which is
much deiser than her neighboring
states, a war potential that could
be linked with the German in-
dustrial potential.

cius D. Clay from Germany to con-

Mediterranean to the soviet leader.
Russia struck the first blow
against plans of the western allies
for a 'federalized" Germany with
criticism of western land reor-

sians viewed as paving the way
for federalization.
At the opening of today's meet-

MOSCOW, March 15-Pravda, Communist Party organ, made a
second bitter Soviet attack on President Truman's Greek-Turkish pol-

"renders valueless" United States declarations of faithfulness to the
United Nations.
Echoing the same arguments as those advanced yesterday in Iz-

conclusions, Pravda declared the proposed economic and military aid

Senator Seeks
Statements By
Military Men

While west-coast movie mag-
notes dickered today over the
screen rights to the March Gar-
goyle, University of Michigan cam-
pus humor magazine, University
officials looked grave and shook
their heads. "Dangerous to the
foundations of American educa-
tion," was their view.
The Board of Regents and the
Board in Control of Student Pub-
lications made no comment. How-
ever, an unidentified member of
the History Department issued an
unsigned statement which read:
"Inasmuch as the students of this
campus are unable to distinguish
between humor and actual serious
fact, it would pose a serious prob-
lem if the Gargoyle's Handy Dan-

dy Guide to Education were per-
mitted to go on sale. University
facilities are not equipped to han-
dle such a problem."
The Handy Dandy Guide to
Education referred to in the state-
ment is Gargoyle's feature of the
month, a sixteen page syllabus
guaranteeing a complete educa-
tion for only 25c.
Because of the avalanche of
telephone calls into the Garg of-
fice to reserve copies of the March
issue, the Garg editors regret to
inform their anxious readers that
no more such reservations may
be accepted. "We cannot disap-
point those students who have
counted on buying their copy
through the regular rchannels
from campus salesmen tomorrow,"
McKinlay pointed out.

Raises Question Amid
Fresh 'Developments
By The Associated Press
Sen. Taft (Rep., Ohio) called to-
day for an official size-up on
whether Russia may declare wa
if the United States gives finan-
cial and mlitary aid to Greece
and Turkey.
"I want to know what our top
military people think of the pos-
'ibility that Russia will go to war
if we carry out this program," he
said, "just as we might be prompt-
ed to go to war if Russia tried to

New Developments
He raised the . question amid
these fresh developments:
1. President Truman made pub-
lic messages of thanks from
spokesmen for all Greek parties
except the Communists. The'
President said they show that all
will "cooperate unreservedly with
the United States government in
its desire to assist Greece" and
that they pledge the aid will b6

tation and the cause of peace and
Others May Ask Aid
2. Key congressmen predicted
that Hungary and four Middle
East states-Iran, Syria, Lebanon
and Palestine-may seek Ameri-
can aid under the administration
program of curbing the advance
of Communism. These legislators
estimated the. ultimate cost of the
program may top $1,000,000,000.
Mr. Truman has asked $4,-
000,000 for Greece and Turkey tis
year. In reaching the $1,000,000,-
000 estimates, the congressmen
counted in $350,000,000 already
requested for relief in liberated
countries and the sums budgeted
for relief in occupied lands, as well
as an undetermined amount of ex-
pected new requests.
New Plan Will
Guard Against
Election Fraud
Reporting that only two polls
will be used in the Student Leg-
islature election T u e s d a y and
Wednesday to provide "complete
supervision of voting," Harvey
Weisberg, election chairman,
romised yesterday that "every ef-
fort will be made to guard against
election fraud."
The polls, which will be open
from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday
and from 8:30 to 3 p.m. Wednes-
day. will be set up in the lobby
of Angell Hall and at the Quonset
huts near Waterman Gymnasium.
Nine polling places were used in
last semester's election.
Sixty students are competing
for the 23 positions which will be
filled in the election. The 27 Leg-
islators chosen last semester will
keep their positions until next
fall. According to the Legisla-
ture's constitution, a new Cabinet
will be elected by its members
during the first week in May.
Under the Hare plan the quota
of ballots necessary to elect a can-
didate is approximately the total
number of ballots cast divided by
the number of posts to be filled,

You could get some good point-

Prof. Hans Kurath, who has un-

dictionary of Middle English which

minimize the job, however, when
he states simply, "our job is to

Covers Four Centuries
The Dictionary will include all
the words used by writers between
the years 1100 and 1500, obtained
from study of all the manuscripts
available from that period.
"Our study takes us up to the
