Supersonic Wind
Tunnel To Be Built
At Willow Airport

Tanks, from nine railroad tank
cars are being assembled at Willow
Run airport as part of the super-
sonic wind tunnel for aircraft re-
search planed by the University.
The supersonic wind tunnel, ex-
pected to be in operation in early
1947, will be located in what was

Dance, Varsity Night
Are Listed Activities
Detailed work on Homecoming
Weekend, which will include Varsity
Night, a pep rally, the Homecoming
Dance and a broadcast over radio sta-
tion WJR, got underway yesterday.
The weekend will be touched off by
the pep rally and Vjarsity Night
planned for Friday night. Every
house on campus has been asked to
make and carry an effigy and ban-
ner in the torchlight parade from the
steps of the Union to Ferry Field.
Tryouts in Progress
Tryouts for Varsity Night are in
progress row and are being held
daily from 10 to 11 a.m. and from 1
to 3:30 p.m. in Harris Hall on the
corner of S. State and E. Huron. A
traditional feature of Michigan

Roof Marauder
Goes Short Way
Intruder Falls Three
Floors From Law Quad
Local police today will question
Harvey Warren, 461 Gratiot, Detroit,
who last night sustained a possible
spinal fracture in a fal from the
third floor of the Law Quadrangle.
Warren was trapped on the roof
outside room N 41 by Lee Kasson,
Jr.; a first-year law student shortly
after 10 p.m. yesterday .
When Kasson ordered the intrud-
er to halt, he attempted to slip from
the roof to a ledge, lost his balance,
and fell to the sikewalk about 50
feet below. He was held by students
until police arrived, then taken to
St. Joseph's' hospital.
Lt. George Stauch of the detective
bureau reported that Warren was
Wearing gloves and that he had re-
moved his shoes. He was kept under
guard during the night.
Student Legislature
Sets Election Plans
The Student Legislature last night
set up the schedule for the campus

elections which will be run by it this
The first election, to be held Oct.
29, will include the choice of senior
amendments to the Legislature's con-
stitution and the selection of six Un-
ion vice-presidents and chairmen for
all class dances. Representatives for
the legislature will be chosen Nov. 12
and 13.

formerly the warm-up hanger near
Hanger No. 1. Wind velocities rang-
ing from 1,400 m.p.h. to 2,500 m.p.h.
will be created in the tunnel.
The wind tunnel will be used for
testing supersonic aerodynamic
characteristics for high speed craft
development for the Army Air
Force and special research com-
mercial airlines. Equally important,
to the aeronautical engineering de-
partment however, is the opportunity
to train scientists in the field of
supersonic aerodynamics. The tunnel
will be operated by graduate stu-
dents and personnel of the engineer-
ing research department.
AAF Research Contract
Although the wind tunnel is be-
ing constructed with funds largely
supplied under an AAF research con-
tract, the University is contributing
to the cost.
By suspending scale d aircraft
parts in the air current created in
the wind tunnel, engineers are able
to observe and measure the force
reactions of these parts to wind ve-
locities simulating varying aircraft
New Tunnel is Smaller
The new wind tunnel, which will
have a cross-section of 8 by 13
inches, does not compare in size to
the sub-sonic wind tunnel located in
the basement of East Engineering,
which measures 8 feet in diameter.
The old wind tunnel permits the use
of larger scale models but develops
a maximum air speed of about only
120 m.p.h.
The high air speed in the tunnel
will necessitate the use of compli-
cated precision instruments. It in-
troduces a problem involving the
supports from which the various
sections will be suspended in the air
current, and it means that defiec-
tions must be measured by a beam
of light, in contrast to the relatively
elementary methods employed in the
old wind tunnel.
Barrage. Balloon
The wind tunnel test section will
be conected at one end to a barrage
balloon containing air at atmos-
pheric pressure and at the other end
to a large tank measuring 10,000 cu-
bic feet in volume formed by bank-
ing and connecting nine tanks ob-
tained from railroad tank cars.
Ticket Hearing
To Check Fraud
A Judiciary Committee check of
ticket holders in sections 24 and 25
has uncovered 16 students who ap-
parently obtained their seats through
A hearing will be held for these
students at 3 p.m. tomorrow in the
Seymour Chase, chairman of the
committee, said last night that the
check on sections 26, 27 and 28 will
continue today but wyl not be fin-
ished in time for tomorrow's hearing.
He added that hearings for under-
classmen holding seats in these sec-
tions will be held.as soon as the check
is completed.
Students summoned to the hearing
tomorrow will be given a chance to
plead not-guilty, Chase said. Under-
classmen entering this plea will pre-
sent their arguments after the regu-
lar hearing.

Percy Jones
G.L.s Denied
Game Tickets
'U' Athletic Board
Cites Tax Ruling
The University Athletic Board
turned thumbs down on a request
yesterday that amputees at Percy
Jones General Hospital in Battle
Creek who had been alloted tickets
to other Michigan home games be
allowed to use student tickets at the
Army game Saturday.
Andrew S. Baker, ticket manager,
said that transfer of student tickets
is unlawful, since they are tax-ex-
"That's the rule," Baker told
The Daily, "and I don't know
where we can get authority to
change it."
Non-student tickets still can be
turned in to The Daily Editorial Of-
fice, however.
The Daily appealed yesterday to
people who don't plan to see the
Army game to turn in their tickets
for distribution to wounded sol-
diers at Battle Creek.
Detroit radio stations and news-
papers have taken up the appeal, even
though The Daily has returned stu-
dent tickets volunteered yesterday in
line with the Athletic Board's ruling.
Prof. Ralph W. Aigler of the Law
School, faculty member of the Ath-
letic Board, said that the University
"just couldn't take the risk" of al-
lowing student tickets to change
hands-even in the case of the sol-
"Tax authorities have insisted that
these special tax-free tickets be
placed in a unit by themselves. The
danger we woud run would be the
tax authorities asking us to pay a
tax on all of the student spectators
if we allowed any transfer of tickets,"
he said.

The Student Legislature Varsity
Committee, sponsor of the rally, has
suggested that houses make banners
for the rally this week-end and use
them again for the Homecoming
rally Oct. 25.

Special Transportation Provided
For Visitors at Army Game

Fear that the growing bubble of na-
tion-wide interest in the Army-Mich-
igan clash may burst with a bang
when the visitors descend on Ann
Arbor is evident in the extensive
transportation and broadcasting ar-
rangements which have been made
for the game.
Six special trains and about 30
special busses are scheduled to arrive
in Ann Arbor tomorrow and Satur-
day. One-hundred members of the
Melton To Lead
Off with First
Concert Here,
The first concert of the Choral
Union Series will be held at 8:30 p.m.
today, when James Melton, tenor, will
sing before a capacity audience in
Hill Auditorium.
A few standing room tickets are
still available for the concert and will
be placed on sale at 9 a.m. in the Uni-
versity's Musical Society's office, Bur-
ton Memorial Tower.
Melton, who has one of the most
comprehensive repertoires in the
musical world, has chosen works by
Handel, Donizetti, Delibes, Faure,
Chanler and Grieg in his program. He
will be assisted by Peter Hansen at
the piano.
Accorded star billing in opera, mov-
ies, concerts and radio, Melton is
known as one of the country's lead-
ing tenors. He has been featured on
top-flight programs for over 17 years
and has made numerous sell-out con-
cert tours in America and Europe.

University of Michigan Society of
New York will arrive early tomorrow
on a special train. The Army squad
will arrive at 12:30 p.m. tomorrow at
the Michigan Central Station.
More than 1,000 members of the
Michigan Alumni Club of Buffalo and
approximately 400 West Point cadets,
officers and members of the Academy
Band will arrive on special trains
Saturday. A twelve-coach special has
been scheduled, to bring about 800
persons from Detroit soon before
game time.
Although arrangements for special
bus runs have not been completed, a
bus company official estimated that
at least 30 specials will be run Satur-
day afternoon from Detroit to the
stadium. He said that the number of
busses which can be used on such
trips is limited because of the short-
age of equipment.
Play-by-play descriptions of the
game will be broadcast by more than.
400 stations on three national hook-
ups. Red Barber, Bill Stern and
Harry Wismer will be at the mikes
for the Columbia, NBC and ABC net-
works respectively. Stations WWJ
and WJR in Detroit and Station
WBBM in Chicago will have direct
game coverage.

Russia, Slays

On All Issues,
iunianian Treaty
Next on Agenda
By The Associated Press
PARIS, Thursday, Oct. 10-The
Peace Conference finished its work
on the Italian draft treaty today after
finally approving the hotly disputed
French compromise proposals for the
government of the Free Territory of
The decision on Trieste came after
a series of ballots in which Russia
and the Slavic states were voted
down, 15 to 6, in their last desperate
attempt to have the conference ap-
prove their ideas for the territory at
the head of the Adriatic.
Under the chairmanship of V. M.
Molotov, Soviet Foreign Minister, the
delegates worked, through the night
and into the early morning hours.
Voting and discussion on the Italian
treaty was concluded at 3:15 a.m.
(8:15 p.m. Wednesday, CST). Molo-
toy ordered another conference ses-
sion for 10 a.m. today to consider the
treaty with Roumania.
Returning after dinner the dele-
gates dashed through all the military
articles in the Italian treaty, approv-
ing unanimously 30 articles in less
than an hour. Ten of the articles
were approved in a block with no
Before they began article-by-arti-
cle voting, the delegates heard Soviet
Foreign Minister Molotov attack the
French compromise as an "undemo-
cratic" scheme to keep Trieste under
British and American control. Molo-
tov declared that disagreements be-
tween the East and the West were
rapidly becoming absurd.
Meat Problem

talk of possible "emergency action"
by President Truman, top-ranking
Administration advisers discussed the
meat shortage for two and a half
hours today but broke up without a
"There will be no announcement
tonight from any source," reporters
were told by Charles G. Ross, Presi-
dential secretary, after the White
House meeting.
One highly-placed Democrat pre-
dicted that the President would take
some new step within a few days, de-
signed to get more meat on the
American dinner table.
Another said that no definite
course had been decided upon, but
that two suggested steps had been
firmly ruled out:
1 The President, as of late today,
has no intention of summoning Con-
gress into special session.
2. The Administrator has not the
slightest intention of seizing cattle
from the farms and ranches.
Still under discussion among the
President's advisers, this source said,

Preuss Upholds Nuernberg
Action, Explains Legal Basis

Repercussions Unpredictable
in Use of Energy by Industry

Senator Robert A. Taft's pro-
nouncement that the Nuernberg trials
verely criticized yesterday by Prof.
Lawrence Preuss, of the political sci-
ence department.
Prof. Preuss, one of the original
planners of the War Crimes Commis-
sion, asserted that all eleven of the
high-ranking Nazis convicted were
guilty of "crimes against humanity."
"The crimes these men commit-
ted are high crimes in any civilized
nation in the world. Transferring
the jurisdiction from a national
court to an international court
does not constitute ex-post facto
law," he said.

War crimes and crimes against hu-
Even if there were any legal
foundation for Senator Taft's
statement that conviction on the
first two counts violates the funda-
mental principle of American law
that a man cannot be tried under
an ex-post facto statute, there is
ample precedent for conviction on
the last two counts alone, Prof.
Preuss said.
"The military laws of the United
States, Great Britain and Germany
have long provided for punishment of
war criminals," he added. "In fact,
the United States executed the com-
mandant of a Confederate prison
camp after the Civil War for inhu-
mane treatment of prisoners."

industry are not sufficiently known

This was the concluson reached by
Profs. Edgar M. Hoover, jr., of the
economics department, and Amos H.
Hawley, of the sociology department.

cal science department, was also in-
terviewed on the implications of in-
dustrial decentralization as a result
of locating atomic power plants in
remote areas. He did not comment

lurgical and chemical industries, but

Atomic energy can be used to
