Most Phone
Workers Still
Out on Strike
Calls To Mother
Must Be Limited
NEW YORK, May 10 - (P) -
The American Telephone and
Telegraph Company, saying that
only about a third of its long dis-
tance workers were back on the
job, today asked the public to
"forego a Mother's Day call if
possible" tomorrow.
AT&T said a nationwide check-
up by its long lines division showed
that only some 8,800 of the divi-
sion's 26,700 employes were at
work, and that they "obviously
would be unable to take care of
the traffic without long delays."
A strike settlement between the
AT&T and its 20,000 long lines
union members has been an-
nounced but many unionists have
refused to cross picket lines of
employes of the Western Electric
Company, Bell telephone manu-
facturing subsidiary, who still are
on strike, and lines maintained by
other telephone unions.
In Detroit Michigan Bell offi-
cials and representatives of the
striking traffic and plant unions
met with Federal and State con-
ciliators Saturday afternoon after
h a report of "considerable head-
way" followed a Friday night .ses-
The company has offered a $2 to
$4 weekly increase geared to local
conditions, while the union has
been holding out for a $6 weekly
boost, trimmed down from the
original $12 a week demand.
An afternoon rally was sched-
uled for Times Square opposite the
main telephone exchange building,
but in deference to Mother's Day,
the union said, a Monday night
meeting would be held instead.
Phone Service
In Ann Arbor
Still Disrupted
Long Distance tails
In Emergency Only
Long distance phone service
from Ann Arbor is still on an
emergency basis, according to N.
J. Prakken, manager of the local
telephone company.
"After newspapers announced
the settlement of the long lines
dispute we were flooded with re-
quests for long distance calls,"
Prakken declared. "Since long
lines operators are employed only
in Kalamazoo and Detroit, their
return to work in no way effects
long distance service in Ann Ar-
bor," he explained.
"Our switchboards are manned
by emergency personnel in Ann
Arbor and all the regular long dis-
tance operators are still on strike
here in Ann A;bor," Prakken said.
"Thus we are forced to accept
only emergency messages," he add-

Ruthven Says
Students Need
Health Classes
Should Be Taught
'Art of Keeping Well'
NEW YORK, May 10-()-As-
serting that generations of stu-
dents were leaving school "as ig-
norant of their biological char-
acteristics as when they entered,"
Dr. Alexander G. Ruthven, presi-
dent of the University today urged
American colleges to include "the
art of keeping well" in their class-
room studies.
Health subjects should be
worked into college curricula even
at the expense of "less important
offerings," Dr. Ruthven told del-
egates to the National Conference
of Health in Colleges.
The Michigan educator said
some college administrators "lack
the courage to resist obstruction-
ist activities of doctors who are
opposed to anything w h i c h
smacks in the slightest degree of
socialized medicine." He added:
"There is need here for more
missionary work, looking toward
the conversion of both college ex-
ecutives and doctors."
Most present student health
programs, Dr. Ruthven said, are
concerned mainly with medical
care, providing "the pound of
cure but not even a full ounce of

Forner Chaplain Is
Now Detroit Prelate
The Most Reverend Bishop
Allen J. Babcock of Detroit will be
honored by the Newman Club at a
Communion breakfast to be held
after the 9:30 a.m, Mass today in
the club rooms of St. Mary's
Bishop Babcock formerly was
chaplain at St. Mary's. This will
be his first visit to Ann Arbor
since his recent consecration.
Bishop Babcock left here in De-
cember, 1936, for an assignment as
vice-rector of the North American
College in Rome. The college was
closed at the outbreak of the war,
and he returned to the United
States and was reassigned to St.
Mary's. In June, 1942, he received
an appointment as pastor of the
Cathedral parish in Detroit.
The present chapel building was
erected during Bishop Babcock's
tenure here.

Reviving a 17-year old campus
tradition, the first Spring Parley
since before the war will be held
Friday and Saturday with the gen-
eral theme "Implications of the
Atomic Age."
Faculty members in seven dif-
ferent fields will discuss effects of
the atomic age on science, world
relations, economics, government,

ligion in a series of panels at 8

The Council announced that a
public-address system will be in-
stalled in the small pavilion at the
end of the island where the musi-
cians will play and urged "all cats"
to attend in informal attire. Re-
freshments will be sold at a booth
sponsored by the Society of Wom-
en Engineers.
More Affairs Planned
Ev Ellin, program organizer and
newly-elected president of the
Council, said yesterday that the
concert should "give the engineer-
ing student body some idea of
what we plan to offer them in the
way of mixers, activities, parties
and other affairs next fall.
"We feel," he said, "that, as the
student legislative branch of the
engineering college, the Engineer-
ing Council should assume the re-
sponsibility of sponsoring a long-
needed program of extra-curricu-
lar activities which would serve to
draw the engineer out into the
open and create a little of that
'school spirit' which has been sad-
ly lacking since the pre-war days."
Ellin said the Council plans to
collect class dues of one dollar
from every engineer during regis-
tration next fall to establish a
fund which will be used to finance
these activities and to create
working treasuries for every class
in the college.
Free Admission
On payment of his dues, each
engineer will receive an activities
card which will entitle him to free
admission to every activity spon-
sored under the program during
the semester.
Part of the fund may be used to
finance the issue of a bi-monthly
bulletin to announce these activi-
ties, Ellin said.
"It is hoped that the various
engineering societies will assume
an active interest in the presenta-
tion of this program and will .each
undertake the responsibility to
sponsor at least one project for the
semester," he said.

Nazi Officers
Are Indicted
Accused Killers
By The Associated Press
NUERNBERG, Germany. May
10-UP3)-Two German Field Mar-
shals and 10 generals were indicted
before an American tribunal today
as war criminals, charged with ex-
ecuting at least 13,000 persons in
the Balkans and in Norway in re-
taliation for resistance attacks
that killed 60 German soldiers.
Field Marshal Wilhelm List,
commander of the 12th German
Army, and Field Marchal Max-
milian Von Weichs, chief of the
second armry, were charged with
setting up this yardstick for exe-
cuting hostages in the Balkans:
Execution Yardstick
For the death of one German
"soldier by resistance groups, 100
hostages; for the wounding of one
German soldier, 50 hostages; for
an act of sabotage, 10 hostages.
The indictment, handed down by
Brig. Gen.sTelford Taylor, Chief
U. S. prosecutor charged these
generals, in addition to List and
Von Weichs, with war crimes and
crimes against humanity:
Col. Gen. Lothar Rendulic, com-
mander in the Norwegian cam-
paign; Generals Walter Kuntze,
Hermann Foertsch, Franz Boehme,
Wilhem Speidel, Kurt Von Geit-
ner, Helmut Selmy, Hubert Lanz,
Ernst Demner and Ernst Von Ley-
Names Crimes
Their crimes, said Gen. Taylor in
the indictment, included "murder,
ill-treatment and deportation of
slave labor, plunder of public and
private property, wanton destruc-
tion of cities, towns and villages
and executions ofthostages."
A British military tribunal at
Venice has sentenced Field Mar-
shal Albert Kesselring, German
commander in Italy, to be shot for
ordering execution of hostages.
Taylor listed 23 specific in-
stances where hostages were shot
on orders of the defendants in
Greece, Albania and Yugoslavia.
Urge Truman
To Outlaw
Portal Claims
WASHINGTON, May 10-(p)-
President Truman is being urged
by some congressional lieutenants
to sign the bill outlawing most
portal pay claims as a political off-
set to an expected veto of labor
disputes legislation.
Influential Democrats who did
not want to be identified publicly
told a reporter today they now are
firmly convinced Mr. Truman
means to veto whatever labor bill
comes out of a Senate-House con-
ference committee after the Sen-
ate acts next week on its pending
version. Neither the House Labor
Bill nor the somewhat milder
measure before the Senate is ac-
ceptable to him, they said, so that
any compromise of the two also
would be unacceptable.
A highly-placed White House
official said Mr. Truman has not
yet made a decision on whether to
sign or veto the portal pay bill.
Cabinet members who conferred
on it yesterday were described as
in full agreement that they would
like to see the bill signed "pro-

vided it does not do violence to the
Wage-Hour Act or other labor
laws," but as differing on that an-
Most of the Cabinet members
were said to feel that if the Presi-
dent can sign the portal bill with-
out endangering the Wage-Hour
Act, he would be in a stronger po-
sition to veto the omnibus labor
bill. And that also is the view of
the congressional lieutenants.

Police Smash
Gambling Ring
Twenty-nine Persons
Arrested in Detroit
DETROIT, May 10-(P)-Five
new search warrants were author-
ized today as police raiding squads
swiftly traced the exposed threads,
of an $8,000,000 gambling syndi-
cate deep into the underworld of
greater Detroit.
Twenty-nine persons, including
four women, were arrested Fri-
day night and early today as a
climax to an 18-months under-
cover investigation by the Detroit
Police Rackets Squad.
Recorder's Judge John J. Maher
authorized the new search war-
rants at noon as officers indicated
new arrests were imminent.
The carefully laid crackdown
started on an unexpected note of
good fortune Friday night when
officers picked up a suspect who
carried a key to their first target,
a private home.
With this simple, quiet means of
entry, the raiders were able to seize
seven men and 9,000 in cash.
The total take in the seven pre-
dawn raids in Detroit and Grosse
Pointe Park was estimated at
$20,000 in cash, 20,000 mutuel
tickets, 11 autos and a truckload
of gambling equipment.

U.S. Plan On
Korean Issue
To Meet May 20
By The Associated Press
LONDON, May 10 - (') - The
Moscow radio said today that Sov-
let Foreign Minister V. M. Mobo-
tov had accepted American pro-
posals on Korea and expressed
hope that the two powers now
could hurdle the obstacles which
for a year have blocked steps for
creation of a democratic provi-
sional government in Korea.
The radio said Molotov sent a
letter to Secretary of State Mar-
shall accepting an American
formula for determining what Ko-
rean representatives should be al-
lowed to appear before the joint
U. S.-Soviet commission on Korea,
and stating:
To Open Parley May ZO
"I hope that thus there no long-
er exists any reason for delaying
the convening of the joint commis-
sion." Molotov has proposed that
the commission2open its session in
Seoul on May 20.
The commission broke up in May
of last year over Russian insistence
on qualifications for Koreans tes-
tifying before the commission that
would' virtually have restricted
such Koreans to communists and
their supporters.
The letter was the fourth in a
series between the two diplomats
on the future of Korea, now oc-
cupied by Russian forces in the
north and American forces in the

Molotov replied with a three-
point program for Korea including
formation of a provisional govern-
ment including "democratic" par-
ties, creation of "democratic" or-
gans of power through free elec-
tions, and aid to Korea in develop-
ing her economy and culture.
Marshall responded with insis-
tence that all Korean political ele-
ments be consulted on the future
government, regardless of what
previous opinions they had ex-
Molotov's last letter, which the
Moscow radio said was deliyered to
Marshall in Washington by the
Soviet Ambassador, cited an ex-
change of correspondence between
the Soviet and American comman-
ders in Korea in November and
December of last year.
Wants Democratic Parties
The Soviet commander pro-
posed that the commission consult
democratic parties and organi-
zations which support fully the de-
cisions on Korea reached at the
meebing of the U. S., British and
Soviet foreign ministers at Mos-
cow in December, 1945.
Many Korean political leaders,
with the exception of the com-
munists, had criticized the trus-
teeship proposal, saying it might
postpone and perhaps endanger
ultimate independence for their
