Bonus Blanks
Now Ready
r For Veterans
Initial Demand
Reduces Supply
Bonus application forms for
Michigan veterans are now avail-
able in Ann Arbor, but community
offices, busy all yesterday, asked
veterans to slow down their rush
to get them.
The American Red Cross in
Nickels Arcade has a limited num-
ber of forms available, but may
run out today, according to Har-
old Hoffman, Home Service 'Di-
'Million People'
"There must have been a mil-
lion people in here today," one of
his assistants said. "So far, we've

Hoffman asked veterans who do
come to the office this week to be
sure to bring their original dis-
charge certificates.
The Veterans' Counseling Cen-
ter at the Armory asked veterans
to wait a week or so before apply-
ing for the blanks.
"There were about 500 or 600
people in today, and we have forms
for only about another day," a
staff worker said.
The Veterans' Service Bureau
has not yet received bonus blanks,
Robert Walcrop, VSB director,
said yesterday. He said there was
no reason for the veterans to rush
after the forms.
Y Two Year Limit
"There's a two-year limit be-
fore they have to be filed," he
said. "But more important, it is
of extreme importance to exer-
L cise the utmost care in filling out
ie forms or veterans will have to
ait a long time for their bonuses.
So far, instructions from Lans-
ing have been limited."
Waldrop said the VSB is pre-
pared to help veterans who have
the forms.
The campus AVC reported that
it had no forms.
Reports from Lansing last week
said that the forms would be
available at banks, veterans' or-
ganizations, counseling centers,
and county clerks' offices.
Besides the original discharge
certificate, veterans must have
personal identification with them
when the forms are notarized.

Education School Votes
Modified A thletic Plan
Two Year Compulsory Sports Course
Will Give Four Credit Hours For Degree
The School of Education yesterday became the first University
college to act on the recent physical education proposal, approving a
modified program.
Education school faculty members voted to require all students
to complete two years of physical education. The physical education
department committee had asked that a three-year program be made
compulsory in all schools of the University.
At yesterday's meeting, faculty members voted to give four hours
academic credits toward the bachelor's degree for the physical educa-

tion course. At the same time, th
Truman Signs
Sugar, Scarce
Materials Acts
Expresses Dislike
For October Deadline
-President Truman today signed
-"with reluctance" a law extending
sugar rationing only until Oct. 31.
He also signed another rush bill'
passed by Congress during the day
preserving federal controls over a
small group of scarce materials
until June 30.
Midnight Race
Both measures were hustled
through Senate and House arid
sent to the White House in a race
against the midnight expiration
of the Second War Powers Act,
basis of the wartime rationing,
priority and allocation power.
The President, evidently more
dissatisfied by the short life given
sugar rationing than by the cur-
tailment of his own broad execu-
tive powers of allocation, issued a
sharp statement on the sugar leg-
Oct 31 "appears to be too early
for the termination of sugar con-
trols," he said. He added that
this had been recognized by many
congressmen "both in committee
and in debate."
Mr. Truman also noted that
Congress assumes that sugar sup-
plies by Oct. 31 "might be materi-
ally larger than those now drlin-
itely in prospect."
20 Pounds Allotted
The Sugar Act also extends
price control on sugar through
October. It otherwise would have
expired June 30.
The bill as signed by Mr. Tru-
man provides that each person
shall have a ration of at least 20
pounds of sugar in the next seven
months. This is equivalent to a
minimum of 35 pounds a year, or
10 pounds more than was allowed
last year.

The Administrative Committee
of the education school has not

The physical education proposal
revealed last week was the result
of two years' work on the part of
a nine-man group appointed by
Athletic Director H. O. Crisler in
March 1944.
The importance for teachers to
have some instruction in physical
education was stressed at the edu-
cation school meeting as the basis
for the increase in physical edu-
cation requirements.
Other schools in the University
are expected to act on this pro-
posal in the near future. A Daily
poll revealed varied reactions to
the Crisler proposal. Campus stu-
dent leaders polled were "whole-
heartedly in favor" of the pro-
posal. Individual students dis-
agreed on the "credit side" of the

tion, and modified programs.

warned that the United States op-
poses "policies which will continue

In his bluntest speech to the
Council of Foreign Ministers, Mar-
shall said the four powers could
never reach agreements "on the
basis of an ultimatum." He added
that the United States "categori-
cally rejects" the Russian stand

that France, too, had adopted an
immovable attitude and had in-
sisted that her demands for Ger-

was not a party to the Potsdam
agreement, we cannot accept her

ed out that this is the day when

sugar is due.
"We have enough sugar to carry
us through this wee," he said,
but the allotment wil be' eeded
after vacation. if 100 per cent of
the stamps are not turned in to

the OPA, our quota is liable to be
reduced in relation to the number
of stamps lacking."
This will result in less sugar for
everyone, he declared. "If a great
majority of the students turn in
their stamps, they will be made to
suffer for the lack of cooperation
of the minority. Some action
should therefore be taken against
this group."
Any disciplinary or punitive ac-
tion taken against students who

to come through the Board of Gov-

Franco Law
Might Create
Spanish King
Council To Serve
As Interim Ruler
By 'The ssciated Press
MADRID, March 31-(P)-Gen-
eralissimo Francisco Franco told
the Spanish people tonight he had
sent a "law of succession" to the
Cortes (parliament) which might
place another king on the vacant
throne of Spain.
On the eve of the eighth an-
niversary of the capitulation of
the Spanish Republican govern-
ment, Franco declared in a na-
tion-wide radio broadcast that the
law would be effective in the event
of his death or incapacition.
The law of succession was the
first admission ever made by
Franco that his government was
a temporary one and that it
might be replaced by another
form of rule over Spain's 26,-
000,000 persons.
It provides in one section that
Franco, as chief of state, will have
the power to suggest a successor
to the Cortes, but in another sec-
tion sets up a "council of the
kingdom" which would serve as
interim ruler and would have the
power to select a king or another
chief of state.
In his "Victory Day" speech,
Franco, who assumed leadership
of the Spanish revolution in
1936 and has headed the gov-
ernment since the fall of the
Republican government, defend-
ed his regime and capitalistic
enterprise. The world has been
wrong, he declared, in assuming
his government was rightist be-
cause Spanish rightists sided.

rather than with the republi-!
Spain, he said, must increase her
wealth and must achieve just dis-
tribution of the wealth.
Asserting that the world once
failed to comprehend his anti-
communistic stand, he said that
such sentiment now is changing,

stood yesterday, has been convert-
!d into the general inquietude of
the responsible men of today," he
