Weber, Dutcher Tie for First Place;
Elliott Gets Student Athletic Post
Tabulation of the lightest vote yet cast in a Student Legislature
election was completed last night as eight members of the Represen-
tative Party and 16 non-partisan candidates became new Legislators.
Because of the "unusually even" distribution of the first place
voting, the election of Elmer Weber and Dave Dutcher, the first can-
didates to be elected, was not determined until the third official'
count. ,
Elliott Wins Board Position
Pete Elliott won the student position on the Board in Control of
Intercollegiate Athletics by a 2,055 to 911 votes over Dominic Tomasi

Vets' Absence
Reports Vital
Waldrop Says
Need for Cooperation
Is Emphaszed by VA
The necessity for veterans'
weekly absence reports was
stressed to the leaders of campus
veterans' groups by Robert S
Waldrop, director of the Veterans
Service Bureau, at the regular
meeting of the University Veterans
Council yesterday.
Veterans Administration in-
structions state that a veteran's
"continuance in training is con-
tingent upon maintenance of sat-
isfactory conduct with respect to
attendance, personal deportment
and progress according to regu-
larly prescribed standards of the
educational institution."
The University is obligated to
report to the VA whenever a vet-
eran has missed more than five
"days" of class. Since it is possi-
ble for a veteran to miss five
"days" of class in one week, the
University has set up the present'
system of weekly reports, Wald'op
The need for cooperation on the
part of the veterans was empha-
sized by Waldrop, who said, "High
school pranks and incorrect re-
ports only cost the University
money and add to the work of
making the reports."
The proper withdrawal proce-
dure for veterans was outlined to
the Council by Gordon B. Jory,
University cashier, who said a
veteran quitting school must take
the following steps:
1. Contact his dean or advisor.
2. Go to the Veterans Service
Bureau and have his records ad-
3. Go to the cashier's office to
turn in his I.D. card and athletic
ticket and have his books and sup-
plies account adjusted.

Respiratory Patients
Swell Infirmary List
Although upper respiratory in-
fections of a mild form have al-
most doubled among students at
the University in the past week,
"luck" still seems to be keeping
the cases from reaching unusual
numbers, Dr. Warren E. Forsythe,
director of Health Service, said
With upper respiratory patients
occupying about half of the 55
beds, the infirmary is now filled
for the first time this semester,
Dr. Forsythe revealed. Health
Service reports show that outpa-
tients with upper respiratory in-
fections have ranged from 50 to 60
a day, in comparison with 25 to
30, previously this year.
The virus research unit, at the
Public Health School, which is
following the outbreak 'closely,
has not been able to identify any
positive cases of influenza. It is
too early as yet to determine the
effect of the influenza immuniza-
tion shots given on campus last
fall, according to one of the re-
search doctors.f

May Be Settled
MOSCOW, March 19 -(/P)-The
first inkling that the Moscow con-

on Germany came tonight when
Secretary of State George C. Mar-
shall and Soviet Foreign Minister
V. M. Molotov agreed that the
four powers possibly could recon-

Atthe sametime, British For-

ly warned the conference that the

Molotov, who shook the repara-
tions skeleton out of the Yalta
closet, found Bevin and Marshall
producing similar references to
previously secret discussions at
Pots.dam and in the Allied Con-
trol Concil for Germany.
Marshall revealed that the Rus-
sians, who yesterday came out for
a 10,000,000 to 12,000,000-ton steel
production in Germany, fought
desperately in the Allied Control
Council a year ago to limit Ger-
man steel production to 3,500,000

Little Agreement Reached
Despite conciliatory speeches,
little agreement was reached at
today's meeting on basic issues,
and new differences came to light
in the economic discussions.
Bevin rejected setting a dollar
value on reparations such as the
Soviet $10,000,000 demand, reject-
ed the Soviet demand to dissolve
the4 Anglo-American zone fusion,
demanded a balanced economy for
Germany before reparations and
rejected the French demand for
definite coal deliveries to other
European states.
Molotov rejected economic unity
for Germany without reparations,
rejected Marshall's and Bevin's
contention that the Potsdam
agreement superseded Yalta on
reparations, but supported the
French coal demand.

Governor Sigler signed into law

blanks for the bonus and the pay-
ment of the claims.
The application forms. approved
by the state administrative board
yesterday, have gone to the printer

Calls Off Threat of Coal Strike;









Gives Office
Tahitadge Takes
Case to People
By The Associated Press
ATLANTA, Ga., March 19-The
State Supreme Court rejected
claims of Herman Talmadge to-
day as governor of Georgia, and
the ousted champion of white su-
premacy yielded to Lieut.-Gov. M.
E. Thompson with a vow to take
his case to the people.
The high court, in an historic,
5-to-2 decision, voided the legisla-
ture's election of young Talmadge
in place of his late father, Eugene
Talmadge, who died 23 days be-
fore inauguration.
The court held that when
Talmadge died, there was no
legal successor to Gov. Ellis Ar-
nall, and declared Arnall held
over. When he resigned vi-.,-
tarily Jan. 18, 1947, the court
continued, executive authority
passed to the lieutenant-gover-
The decision came nine weeks to
the day after Talmadge teized
physical control of the executive
offices and goveinor's mia sion
with state troopers and National
Guard officers.
Talmadge stumped out of the
capitol, followed by his chief po-
litical lieutenant, tubby, talka-
tive Roy V. Harris, who had helped
engineer his abortive election by
the legislature. Before leaving,
Talmadge telephoned his pretty
young wife at the mansion.
"Honey, it was five to two
against us," he said. "Get our
stuff together now and we'll
move out this afternoon."
Talmadge then told reporters:
"In all political questions the court
of last resort is the people of
Georgia. This question will be
carried to the court of last resort."
The Supreme Court's decision
was made public at 11:25 a.m.
By 12:15 p.m., Talmadge and his
staff had cleaned out their desks,
removed all private papers, and
locked the doors.
Jubilant Lieut-Gov. Thompson,
pump-handling well-wishers in al
suite of a downtown hotel, de-
clared: "All along I have believed
it was wrong for the General As-
sembly to elect a governor."

WASHINGTON, March 19 -
John L. Lewis, yielding "uncon-
ditionally" to a Supreme Court
mandate, told his 400,000 soft

With no outward hint of bitter-
ness, Lewis thus called off the
breat of a new nation-wide coal
strike next month and agreed to
