NUERNBERG, Germany, Oct. 16-
The bodies of 11 Hitler henchmen
were spirited away to secret and un-
marked graves today, while harassed
guardians of Herman Goering
launched a microscopic, inch-by-inch
examination of his cell for clues as
to how he had managed by suicide
to cheat the hangman.
The prison chaplain and assistant
security officer both expressed the
opinion that the wily, No. 2 Nazi had
carried on his person, ever since his
capture a year and a half ago, the
deadly potassium cyanide which he
gulped less than two hours before he
was to march to the gallows.
How he had managed to do this
remained unanswered. The plump
defendant had been searched at
least 100 times during his months
in captivity.
Col. B. C. Andrus, U. S. Army Com-
mandant of the Prison said tonight
in an interview it was possible that a
German attorney "slipped" Goering
the poison during the trial. He said,
however, he had no connection with
the investigation of Goering's death
and that the theory was merely a
"possibility" which would be probed
by a commission of three Army offi-
cers.
Attorneys had close contact with
the prisoners during the trial and
often handed sheafs of documents
back and forth. The guards were
ordered to scrutinize every scrap of
paper before passing is to a de-
fendant.
Mystery also shrouded the burial
of Goering and of the 10 top-ranking
Nazis who died on twin gallows short-
ly after midnight on this cold gray
morning.
Capt. Samuel Binder of the se-
curity police detail said the final
resting place of the 11 would re-
main a secret.
The news of Goering's grim,
Joke-that he had been able to
outwit scores of United States
troops whose job was to see that
he keep his date with the hang-
man-spread with lightning speed
throughout Germany.
Although many Germans cursed
with deep hatred the once arrogant
Luftwaffe head, there were others
who were delighted that he had
managed to escape the verdict of the
International Military Tribunal com-
posed of august jurists of Russia,
Great Britain, the United States and
France.

A secret three man investigat-
ing the Allied Control Council, ap-
parently ran up against a blank
wall in its atempt to solve the
question of how the shrunken fat
man had managed to swallow the

Swan Favors
Broad Attack 'on
D iscrimination
A broad attack on all manifesta-
tions of overt discrimination is the
most effective method. of eliminating
racial prejudice.
That is the opinion of Edward
Swan, executive secretary of the De-
troit chapter of the National As-
sociation for the Advancement of
Colored People, who addressed the
Inter-Racial Association yesterday in
the Union.
"Experience has proven," Mr.
Swan declared, "that a successful
drive against discrimination on the
civil rights and job front usually cul-
minates in greater inter-racial un-
ity."
Every campaign to promote racial
equality, Swan warned, must be
based upon careful *planning and
based upon careful planning and
constant vigilance or it will fail to
achieve a healthier community at-
mosphere. Once an offensive is un-
dertaken, Swan added, it must be
continued without interruption or

deviation until the objective is ob-
tained.
Preceding Swan's address, the
IRA unanimously adopted the broad
statement of policy which declared :
"The Inter-Racial Association of
the University of Michigan is against
any discriminations which violate
the fundamental rights of man and
hereby resolves to combat these
existing evils wherever they are
found."

ADMIRAL CHESTER W. NIMITZ

Admiral Nirnitz
To® Delivwer Talk
To 'U' Students
Fleet Admiral Chester White Nim-
itz, Navy chief of operations, will
speak to University students at 11
a.m., Friday, Oct. 25, on the steps
of the General Library.
The Admiral, who will be accom-
panied by Mrs. Nimitz, will be in town
visiting Dr. Esson M. Gale, director of
the University's International Center.1
Admiral Nimitz first visited the
campus in 1940, when as Chief of the
Bureau of Naval Personnel he at-
tended the commissioning of the
NROTC unit.
In case of inclement weather, the
Admiral's brief speech will be given
in Hill Auditorium.
AVC To Study
Y
Crost of Living
Of 'U' Veterans
The campus AVC will find out this
week if University veterans are run-1
ning in the red under the GI Bill sub-
sistenceallowance.
One thousand annonymous ques-
tionnaires will be distributed to cam-7
pus veterans by the American Veter-
ans Committee to get the facts on the]
cost-of-living.
The survey is intended to determine
if the original intent of the GI Bill is1
being defeated by rising living costs,
according to AVC chairman, Lorne
Cook.
A random sampling of information
on veterans income and expenditures
will be obtained beginning this morn-
ing at a table set up on the diagonal.
Adequate representation of all groups
will be assured, Cook said, by sending
questioners through various living
quarters.
If the survey reveals that student-
veterans are on the whole actually
digging into savings or financing
their college careers by loans, the
campus AVC expects to come out
strongly in favo of increased sub-
sistence allowances.
Willow Village veterans will be
polled by the Willow Run chapter of
AVC.
The questionnaire asks veterans for
an estimate on monthly incomes and
expenditures and asks how they make
up the difference if their budget ex-
ceeds subsistence allowances.

Subsidly Plans
Gven by Wope
Plans of the Michigan Council of
the American Veterans Committee to
ask the State Legislature to provide
an additional subsidy for student vet-
erans, if it is found that the present
federal subsidy, is insufficient, were
outlined by Bob Wolpe, chairman of
the state council, at the campus AVC
meeting yesterday.
In conjunction with the cost of liv-
ing survey which begins on campus
today, Wolpe said that the Michigan
council will use the results of the lo-
cal chapter's survey in formulating
this proposed request to the State
Legislature.

Butter Kept
Free from
Restrictions
Hope for Lower
Dairy Prices Held
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Oct. 16-OPA took
all price restraints off vegetable fats
and oils tonight, and the Price De-
control Board decided to keep butter
and other dairy products equally free
of control.
These two decisions, following close
on the freeing of meat from price
control, were disclosed as another
form of wartime restrictions, govern-
ment curbs on wages, appeared head-
ed for a quick death.
Political Debate
They coincided, too, with increas-
ing political debate as to who is to
blame for food shortages and rising
prices. Elections in which these is-
sues are already a big factor will be
held November 5.
In its fats and oils order, which is
effective tomorrow, OPA said that de-
control of such meat items as lard
made it imperative to grant the same
to competing vegetable oils. House-
wives will notice the effects chiefly
on oleomargarine, shortening, mayon-
naise, salad dressings and cooking
gas.
Butter and Cheese
The Price Decontrol Board an-
nounced that butter and cheese prices
"have now risen to an unreasonable
level," but added that under the ac-
celerated decontrol program of Presi-
dent Truman, it had no choice but to
leave dairy products control-free.
"Recontrol of all or any part of
the dairy industry would be incon-
sistant with the accelerated decon-
trol program announced by the Presi-
dent on October 14 when he directed
that controls be lifted from livestock
and meat," the board said.
Lower Prices
It held out some hope of lower
prices on dairy products, saying:
"It is expected that with the rising
production of milk and the resump-
tion of livestock slaughter, the pres-
sure on prices of dairy products will
be materially relieved."
The political arguments about the
food situation brought one Repub-
lican challenge of President Truman's
truthfullness.

Board Awaits
Wage Policy
Clarification of Status
Sought by Members
WASHINGTON, Oct. 16 -- () -
Members of the Wage Stabilization
Board offered their views to the
White House today on the accelerated
scrapping of wage controls advocated
by President Truman.
Because the status of the Board it-
self is at stake, Chairman W. Willard
Wirtz and Vice-chairman Phillips L.
Garman, the public members, pro-
posed an immediate decision on
whether the agency should be con-
tinued or wiped out forthwith.
After a conference with Reconver-
sion Director John R. Steelman and
Economic Adviser John C. Collet,
Wirtz told reporters: "We found them
completely in accord with our view
that any present uncertainties with
respect to the Board's position should
be clarified as soon as possible."

Students planning to run for mem-
bership on the Board in Control of
Student Publications must meet with
the nominating committee of the Stu-
dent Affairs Committee at 4 p.m. to-
day in the Senior Editorial Offices of
The Daily.
Candidates for the three positions
on the Board must present written
pledges that they will "stand for elec-
tion in good faith and that if elected
will assume the duties of the office"
when they appear before the com-
mittee.
Must Present Eligibility Cards
In addition candidates must pre-
sent eligibility cards and plan to at-
Vets Can Enroll
n V-6 Program
Today in U.nion
Naval Reserve Corps
Will Include Waves
A U. S. Naval Traveling Recruiting
unit will be open from 8 a.m. to 4:30
p.m. today in the Union lobby to en-
roll veterans in the new V-6 (inac-
tive duty) program.
Men veterans of any branch of
service and former Waves are eligible
for the V-6 program. The Wave vet-
erans who enroll will be eligible for
the organized reserve any time after
their enrollment. If they join the
organized reserve they will attend one
drill or meeting a week for two hours,
receiving for this a full day's pay.
Navy Personnel Keep Ratings
All former Navy or Coast Guard
personnel who enroll in V-6 keep
their ratings and are offered an op-
portunity to advance as in the regular
active duty program.
Commenting on the reserve pro-
grams, Lt. (jg) J. H. Faber, head of
the Michigan traveling recruiting
unit,said: "In the event of another
war, the Naval Reserve program will
mean money in your pocket since you
will collect the amount of longevity
accumulated while in the Naval Re-
serve." This applies to either pro-
gram, V-6 or the organized reserve,
Lt. Faber said.
Veterans who enroll in V-6 remain
civilians and cannot be called to ac-
tive duty without their own consent,
except in the event of a national
emergency. Benefits which veterans
are receiving under the GI Bill of
Rights or any other veteran benefit
laws are not affected by enrollment
in V-6.
Four Year Enrollment
Except for Waves, enrollment in
V-6 is for a four year period at the
end of which the veteran is eligible
for the organized reserve.
Veterans interested in enrolling in
V-6 should visit the booth in the
Union, bringing with them their hon-
orable discharge certificates. For-
mer Navy personnel should also bring
Form 553. Former Army personnel
must bring certificates 615-360; 615-
363; 615-365.

Vaccine Flown
Here for Flu
Innoculations
The A and B influenza vaccine, to
be used in the mass innoculation of
23,000 students, faculty and person-
nel during the week of Oct. 28, has
arrived by plane from the Influenza
Commission in Washington.
The vaccine is the same one used
by the Army to innoculate 7,000,000
GI's in November, 1945. In large-
scale, niationwide tests it was found
to be efftive in three out of four
cases.
Army Innoculated
On the Michigan campus, 600 Army
men were innoculated on Oct. 16, 1945
by Army authorities as part of the
nationwide program. Records kept of

The Health Service issued an ap-
peal yesterday for registered
nurses and nurses' aides to assist
in the influenza immunization pro-
gram during the week of Oct. 28
from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 to 6 p.m.
At least twenty registered nurses

while from the Army unit there were
only 7 admissions-a rate of 11.5 per
thousand.
The A and B vaccine was perfected
in work done at the School of Public
Health in 1941 under the direction of
Dr. Thomas Francis, Jr., sponsored
by the Commission of Influenza set
up by the Army Surgeon General's
Office.

GOVERNOR ELLIS ARNALL
Arnall Open
]Lecture Series
At Hill Tonight
Ruthven To Introduce
Governor of Georgia
America's youngest state governor,
Ellis Arnall of Georgia, will open the
1946-47 Oratorical Association lec-
ture series at 8:30 p.m. tonight in Hill
Auditorium.
Gov. Arnall, who will be introduced
by President Alexander G. Ruthven,
has chosen as his lecture topic "'The
South Looks Forward." The Southern
leader looks forward to a "new era"
for Georgia and the entire South and
predicts wide industrial expansion in
that region. Toward this end he has
directed an attack on the railroads in
an attempt to break down freight
rates "discriminatory" to the South.
Among progressive reforms which
Gov. Arnall has been instrumental in
making in Georgia's government are
the removal of education from the
Srealm of politics, modernization of
the state's notorious penal system,
formulation of a new constitution for
Georgia, lowering the voting age to
18, repeal of the poll tax and passage
of a soldier-vote measure.
A native son of Georgia, Arnall at-
tended Mercer College in Macon, Ga.,
and the University of the Southat
Sewanee, Tenn., and took his legal
training at the University of Geor-
gia. Before he won the election for
governor in 1942, he practiced as a
"county-seat lawyer" in his home
town, served in the state legislature
from 1933 to 1937, and was elected
attorney-general in 1939.
Roundup

Many Cities
To Have Meat
BySaturday
Prices Well Over
Old OPA Ceilings
By The Associated Press
CHICAGO, Oct. 16 - Livestock
poured into markets across the coun-
try in excess of advance estimates to-
day, and sources in the packing in-
dustry predicted this meat would
reach millions of American dinner
tables by this weekend.
The run of hogs to major mar-
kets was three times as heavy as a
year ago and cattle receipts were
on a par with 1945. Prices were
well above the now nullified OPA
ceilings and generally higher on
cattle and somewhat lower on hogs
than yesterday, the first day of
uncontrolled market operations.
Meat industry sources said fresh
beef and pork could reach neighbor-
hood butcher shops from two to five
days after the animals are sold, de-
pending on how far they have to be
shipped.
Thus, they added, such major live-
stock market centers as Chicago, St.
Louis, Omaha, St. Paul and Indianap-
olis will have a fair supply of pork
and some beef available at the retail
level by Saturday.
Industry sources printed out that
while the animals marketed today
were sufficient to provide a "fairly
good" temporary supply in retail
markets throughout the country,
buying would be heavy at this level
and distribution might be spotty.
Continued heavy receipts are
needed, they said, to meet the big
demand.
Most of them believed that supply
wouldn't overtake demand for from
60 to 90 days, when short fed beef
cattle start coming in from the feed
lots.

Of $4,000,000'
Housing Project
Erection of the first three houses
of the planned 500-unit, $4,000,000
housing development to be con-
structed one mile north of the city
on the former Dhu Varren Farms,
will get under way within the next
two weeks, it was announced yester-
day.
Approximately 2,000 persons' will
be housed in this project, which is
being undertaken by the H. C. Allen
Co. builders anddevelopers, and the
Ann Arbor Trust Co. These single-
family homes, in compliance with
the law, will be held for veterans for
a period of 60 days following com-
pletion before they can be offered
to anyone else.
An estimated 125 workmen will be
used to construct the new project,
largest single family unit program
ever planned in the Ann Arbor area.
Earl H. Cress, president of the Ann
Arbor Trust Co., offered no sugges-
tion as to where the labor is to be
obtained. However it was learned
that Henry C. Allen, president of the
building firm, was out of town yes-
terday in search of building mater-
ials and labor.
Construction will begin upon ar-
rival of the parts for the first three
dwellings, which are scheduled for
shipment early next week from the
manufacturers. Foundations for
these houses will begin shortly.
