Generous Students, Faculty, Alumni
Give Their Seats to Soldier Patients

The University student body, facul-
ty and alumni proved yester-
day that World War II heroism has
not been forgotten.
In answer to the appeal issued
by The Daily and the University
chapter of the American Veterans
Committee, they turned over 65
Army game tickets for use by sol-
dier amputees at Percy Jones Hos-
pital in Battle Creek.
Added pledges of tickets received
by The Daily last night assured that
an even greater number of GI pa-
tients will be in the stadium at kick-
off time today.
The men from Percy Jones will ar-
Gala Greeting
Planned for
West Pointers

Cadets, 314
Arrive This


The presidents of five student or-
ganizations will represent the campus
in an official welcome to the 314
West Point oadets, 73tmembers of the
Academy Band and ten officers who
will arrive at 10:45 a.m. today at the
New York Central Station.
Upon arrival, the cadets will form
ranks to receive welcomes from Ray
Davis, Dick Roeder, Harry Jackson,
Jean Clare and Margaret Gage, re-
spectively of Student Legislature, the
Union, Inter-Fraternity Council, As-
sembly and Pan-Hellenic Association.
Cadet Brigade Commander W. J.
Shunder will acknowledge the greet-
ings for the Academy members.
Maj. Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor, com-
mandant of the Academy, has invited
President Alexander G. Ruthven to
review a pre-game precision drill by
the cadets from his box in thesta-
dium. The cadets will acknowledge
their reception by an honor salute to
President Ruthven.
Several points on the cadets' sched-
ule have been changed slightly. The
drill will start at 1 p.m., ten minutes
e'rlier than originally planned, so
that the field can be cleared by 1:40.
Two hundred of the cadets will take
luncheon at 11:30 a.m. in the West
Quadrangle and 150 will eat dinner
there. All band members will take
both meals at the East Quadrangle.
Officers and their wives will have
lunch at the Union.
The University Marching Band will
pay tribute to the late Fielding H.
Yost during half time with the pre-
sentation of a new arrangement of
"Varsity" prepared by Conductor
William D. Revelli. In addition to a
pre-garne appearance during the
cadet drill, the Academy Band will
join with the Marching Band for the
flag-raising ceremony.
State Sales Tax
Diversion Hit
Constitutional Limits
Are Wrong-Bromage
Prof. Arthur W. Bromage, of the
political science department, pointed
out that the diversion of the one per
cent sales tax to local units and
schools is "wrong in principle," in
a speech yesterday before the Detroit
League of Women Voters.
Michigan is at present proposing
a constitutional amendment effect-
ing such diversion. Prof. Bromage
believes it would limit legislative con-
trol over appropriations and create
new problems of financial adminis-
"Writing detailed limitations into
state constitutions is wrong in prin-
ciple and creates real problemsin
practical administration," he de-
clared. "In the field of finance such
constitutional provisions restrict the
development of fiscal policy by the
legislature. If the trend toward lim-
itations is continued, we shall reach
the point where the legislature will
have lost an effective control over ap-
Some of our cities have real finan-
cial problems, Prof. Bromage pointed
out, but the solution should be found
by legislative determination as to ad-
ditional state aid or new local sources
of revenue.

"I'd like to see the game myself
but I think one of the boys out
there would enjoy it more" was
typical of their remarks.
Several said they hoped the weath-
er would be good so that the battle-
scarred veterans would get maximum
enjoyment from the game.
Student tickets received by The
Daily will be returned to their own-
ers upon presentation of receipts
from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday at the
cashier's desk in the Student Publi-
cations Building.
Students who will be unable to call
for their tickets are asked to notify
The Daily editors. Tickets owned by
these students will be returned to
them by registered mail.
Pigskin Fever
Rages Among
Arriving Mob
Football fever ran high today with
thousands of fans descending upon
Ann Arbor from all points of the
compass, via special trains, busses,
private auto and airplane.
Anticipating an overflow of hun-
gry fans, local restaurateurs have
taken precautions to secure extra
food stocks. Post-game get-to-geth-
ers will also place a strain on facili-
ties, according to local innkeepers.
Virtually all. local police, rein-
forced by sheriff's deputies and 25
state troopers, will be on hand to
handle traffic. The recently reor-
ganized parking scheme which
proved effective during preceding
games, will be enforced, according
to police officials.
An adequate supply of refresh-
ments has been secured for the esti-
mated throng of 87,993, conces-
sionaires report. It is expected that
coffee will replace soft drinks in the
fans favor, with 50 degree ivercoat
weather promised by the weather-
Athletic Ticket Manager Andrew
Baker, pointed out that today's
throng will be the largest normal
capacity crowd ever to witness a grid
classic in the stadium. The 1943,
Notre Dame-Michigan clash, drew
several hundred more spectators, be-
cause fans were seated in the aisles
and on the playing field, Baker said.
Game Plugged on
Radio Program
Hailed as the grid clash of the
week, the Army-Michigan tilt re-
ceived a nation-wide plug over a
coast-to-coast radio hook-up last
night. The playing of the Michi-
gan Alma Mater and Victor songs
was featured.

Pep Rally
Yells 'Kill
The Mule'
Seven thousand students last night
massed inside Yost Field House to
demand a Michigan victory over the
highly rated Army squad in today's
grid classic.
In spite of reports by the radio,
pressrand "so-called experts" Wally
Weber, Coach of the "B" team, told
the pep rally crowd that Michigan
has never been better prepared for
suh a challenge.
"Fielding Yost created a Michigan
tradition for winning," Weber assert-
ed, "and we'll carry on in that tra-
dition. We won't concede an inch to
the West Point team; we're going to
win-and be gentlemen about it."
17 Year-olds Used in '45
"Last year," he continued, "we had
to send seventeen year old- into the
game. This time we'll match Army's
'big guns' with men-threedeep.
Chappuis will be a keynote in our at-
Plans for the pep rally, originally
scheduled to be held at Ferry Field,
were changed in the afternoon after
rain soaked the wood-pile and field,
Bruce Rogatz, chairman of the pep
rally committee, commented. A large
percentage of the students brought
wood for fire which was expected to
be the largest ever had at a Michi-
gan rally.
Yell Contest continued
The winning yell in the Varsity
Committee contest was to be present-
ed to the crowd last night, but it has
been decided to continue the contest
for another ten days.
Stalling State Street traffic for
half an hour, the throng gathered in
front of the Union at 7:30 p.m. Led
by five cheerleaders and "rooter
king" Bill MacGowan, the 7,000 stu-
udents shouted in the streets and at
the Field House. The 104-piece Mich-
igan band provided the background
for "Varsity" and "Yellow and Blue."
The next day will be held at Ferry
Field, weather permitting, the night
before the Home-Coming game. Stu-
dents will be urged to bring wood for
the fire.
Prelate Found
Guilty of Aiding
Slav Terrorists
ZAGREB, Yugoslav, Oct. 11-()-
Archbishop Alojzijc Stepinac, head
of the Roman Catholic church in
Yugoslavia was convicted by a peo-
ples court today of sponsoring or-
ganization of Ustashi terrorists and
was sentenced to 16 years imprison-
ment at hard labor.
The balding, 48-year-old arch-
bishop, described by Bishop Joseph
P. Hurley, the American regent of
the Apostolic Nunciature in Belgrade,
as "the mercier of our time," received
the verdict without emotion, looking
straight at the court.
In Washington, Undersecretary of
State Acheson said that the United
States feels "concern and deep wor-
ry" about the possible unfairness of
the Yugoslav trial of Archbishop
Acheson told a news conference
that the United States has not re-
ceived any request from the Vatican
for intervention in the prelate's con-
vicition, and that his comment was
not based on any official evidence of
any violation of civil liberty in the
conduct of the trial.




Volunteers Fill
Service Quota
For This Year
Calls Expected To Be
Renewed in January
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Oct. 11 - With
nearly 1,000,000 volunteers in uni-
form, the Army today declared a
draft holiday for the rest of 1946.
Maj. Gen. Lewis B. Hershey, selec-
tive service director, was notified by
the War Department that some 20,000
men who already had been called up
for induction the last half of October,
and 15,000 men in the November
quota, need not report.
No Promises For January
For December there will be no
quota, but no promises were made be-
yond the first of the year. The War
Department said the suspension did
not prejudice its right to renew calls
if future volunteer enlistments fail to
maintain adequate military strength.
The holiday was the second this
year; there were no calls in July and
Congress Expected To Debate
Today's action promised to figure
in Congressional debate if the War
Department should ask a further ex-
tension of the Selective Service Act
beyond next March 31, its present ex-
piration date.
Foes of the draft argued vainly
when the issue was up last spring
thatnwith the Army in the process of
reducing from 1,550,000 to 1,070,000
this fiscal year, volunteers alone
would meet the need for replace-
ments. One argument on the other
side was that the draft law was neces-
sary to spur enlistments.
The War Department's action will
halt the draft machinery entirely for
the rest of the year; the Navy has re-
ceived no men by induction since last
Selective Service officials said the
last 1946 draftees would be inducted
next Tuesday. Those under induction
orders for that date will be required
to report but telegrams to local
boards directed the cancellation of
"Presidential Greetings" for induc-
tion on Oct. 16 or later.
Truman Stand
Unchanged on
Palestine Issue
LONDON, Oct. 11-()-An au-
thoritative source said today Presi-
dent Truman in his latest letter to
Prime Minister Attlee stood pat on
his call for immediate Jewish immi-
gration into Palestine and had re-
jected Britain's assertion that the re-
quest "jeopardized" Holy Land nego-
The same source disclosed that
Prime Minister Attlee, in a pointed
letter to Truman had "traced the rec-
ord of the President's advice" on Pal-
estine "against the background of
British action and difficulties" there
The disclosure pointed up a general
British feeling, expressed in govern-
ment circles as well as the press, that
the United States was free with ad-
vice but stingy with constructive help
in a problem of more direct concern
to Britain than to the Truman ad-
Truman's latest letter to Attlee, an
informant said, renewed a plea for a
.program of immediate" action on
immigration, now at a standstill, and
recalled that the President had been
urging such action since September,

The President was said to have em-
phasized that Europe's Jews had gone
through a "terrible ordeal" before
and during the war and that virtually
"nothing" had been done to alleviate
their condition since the war.

MEAT FROM ARGENTINA-Secretary of Agriculture Clinton P. An-

age. President Truman and his cabinet are at present considering lift-
ing the ban on fresh meat imports from Argentina as a further relief
U.S. Restates Opposition to
Soviet BVases in Dardane lies



As Means to Overcome Shortage,
Draft Holiday Declared Till 1947

WASHINGTON, Oct. 11-(IP)-The
United States today firmly restated
its oppositipn to Soviet bases in the
Dardanelles and warned Russia that
this country does not intend to be
shouldered out of the negotiations
over the vital straits.
The American position was set
forth in a note delivered in Moscow
by Ambassador Walter Bedell Smith.
The note was dated October 9 but re-
leased only today by the State De-
Russo-Turk Parley Foreseen
From Istanbul, meanwhile, came
dispatches predicting that Turkey,
assured of continued American and
British opposition to Russia's main
demand, might agree to a Soviet re-
quest for direct Ankara-Moscow talks.
Britain sent a note to Turkey sev-
eral days ago. Persons familiar with
it said it also supported Turkey in
opposition to any Russian military
expansion into the straits.
The United States newest commun-
cation, which was circulated yester-
day among the signers of the 1936
Montreux Treaty governing the Dar-
danelles made these main points:
U. S. Refuses To Be Cut Out
1. Declared that when the United
States, Russia and Britain agreed at
Potsdam to propose changes in the
Montreux Treaty they recognized
each other's interests in the straits
and no one ofuthem has a right to cut
the others out.
2. Favored greater rights for Soviet
ships in the waterway but opposed
joint control by the so-called Black

Sea powers, chiefly Russia and Tur-
3. Reaffirmed that Turkey should
be .primarily responsible for defend-
ing the straits but in case they were
threatened with attack "the resulting
situation would be a matter for ac-
tion on the part of the Security Coun-
cil of the United Nations."
"Free Danube"
To Bulgar- Pact
PARIS, Saturday, Oct. 12-(AP)-
The 21-nation Peace Conference early
today wrote into the Bulgarian peace
treaty provisions to internationalize
the Danube River, matching the ac-
tion taken early yesterday in the
Romanian treatey.
The action was sealed by a 15 to 6
East-West split vote, the same ra-
tio that has marked most of the votes
on controversial commercial and mili-
tary issues.
Early in the session that began at
9:50 p.m. Friday night, the confer-
ence failed to agree on frontiers for
Bulgaria, apparently throwing the
problem of the border between Greece
and Bulgaria back to the Foreign
Ministers' Council for final decision.
The Danube question is to come
up again in handling of the Hungar-
ian treaty, scheduled to be discussed
in sessions later today.
The upset came after the United
States had pledged to join in United
Nations defense of Greece against
any aggressor, arguing that United
NatiOns action was a better security
for the Hellenic kingdom than the
strategic frontiers she sought with
her northern neighbor.

President Will
Reveal Plan in
Radio Speech
Rep. Celler Calls for
Foreign Meat Imports
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Oct. 11-Relax-
ation of the meat price controls was
reported authoritatively today to be
definitely under consideration by
President Truman.
While a final decision has not been
made, the President hopes to find at
least a partial solution for the meat
shortage by the weekend and to an-
nounce it to the nation by radio Sun-
day night.
The situation came to a head at a
Cabinet meeting .today'which lasted
one hour and 35 minutes, the longest
Cabinet session Mr. Truman ever has
President To Broadcast
An official familiar with what took
place in the meeting disclosed the
President's tentative plan for a Sun-
day night broadcast and reported the
consideration given to the price ceil-
ing question.
The official also reported that the
possibility of obtaining meat from
overseas, principally Argentina, was
another point considered. The statu-
tory ban on fresh meat imports from
Argentina which was imposed on the
ground that there was a danger of
spreading hoof and mouth disease,
possibly could be overcome by execu-
utive order for an emergency. But it
was thought unlikely that sufficient
supplies would be available from for-
eign sources.
Celler Asks Quarantine Removal
Rep. Celler (D., NY), calling for
removal of "the ridiculous quaran-
tine" on Argentine meat, suggested in
a statement that "the minute we
bring in or threaten to bring in Ar-
gentine beef, the daylights would be
frightened out of the cattle bloc."
Celler also proposed that the meat
tariffs be suspended.
Senator Taft (R., Ohio) in another
statement called the proposal to im-
port Argentine beef "shocking." He
added with sarcasm that "the possi-
ble destruction of the livestock busi-
ness in the U, S. would be of little im-
portance compared to losing an elec-

Right To Move
Committee Rejects
47 Other Applications
Eighteen of the 82 applications for
permission to move from Willow Vil-
lage have been approved to date.
T h e administration committee
which considered the requests was
forced to disapprove 47 applications
which did not show "emergency"
need, the only "valid justification,"
according to University policy, for
moving. Seventeen petitions will be
reconsidered when they have been in-
vestigated further.
A member of the committee re-
ported that information about rooms
which have been found by personal
solicitation and which will not be
occupied this term will be kept on
file until the beginning of the spring
semester, when another, increase in
enrollment is anticipated. He said
that, as far as the committee knows,
all students have now found perma-
nent housing for the semester.
