Churchill Still
Wary of Reds
LONDON, Oct. 24--()-Winston
Churchill said tonight that he had
"facts" and "evidence" to support
his suggestion that the Soviet Union
had 200 divisions--more than 2,000,-
000 men-on a war footing in Soviet-
occupied Europe.
Addressing his constituents in
suburban Loughton, Churchill de-
scribed his speech in the House of
Commons yesterday as "a serious
warning," and added dramatically:
"I did not ask the question (re-
garding Russian forces) without
weighing very carefully the whole
matter and without consulting others,
my friends and colleagues, and lay-
ing before them the evidence on
which I proceeded."

Nimitz Endorses Disarmament
Proposals; Urges Support of UN

Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz
endorsed world-wide disarmament
proposals in an interview here yes-
The Chief of Naval Operations,
who will address the student body at
11 a.m. today from, the steps of the
General Library, said that he did
not think disarmament proposals
were "unfeasible at present."
Admiral Nimitz stressedthe fact
that it "must be an honest effort
on the part of all nations con-
"Right now the best thing we can
all do is to support the United Na-
tions organization and become less
suspicious of one another," he said.
"There is a better chance for this
sort of thing to succeed than there
was after the last war. Our aloof at-
titude to the League of Nations made
it less possible to insure any effec-
tive disarmament. Under the old
5-5-3 ratio, Britain built her 5, Ja-
pan built her 3 and we were the
only nation that did any real dis-
armament," he declared.
The Admiral pointed out that our
present position of leadership in the
United Nations makes it more pos-
sible to carry out effective disar-
He expressed satisfaction with the
Navy's present complement of per-
sonnel and ships saying that "we
anticipate no need for peacetime
naval conscription."
Estimating the present comple-
ment of active, reserve and inactive
Naval ships at approximately 1,000,
Admiral Niiritz said that the Navy's

leaves it in a much better state of
readiness than it was prior to the
"As the size of the Navy and its
expenditures shrink with a peace-
time budget, the importance of the
reserve officers and men becomes
more obvious," he said.
"Nobody appreciates more than I
do the important role the reserves
played during the war. 11 out of 12
of our officers in the Pacific were
reserve officers; most of our hand-
ing craft were commanded by ae-
serve officers. It was truly a civilian,
citizen's Navy."
Admiral Nimitz is in town with
Mrs. Nimitz visiting Dr. and Mrs.
Esson M. Gale of the University In-
ternational Center. The Nimitzes'
and Gales' friendship dates back to
1928 when the Admiral. then Cap-
tain Nimitz, was professor of naval
tactics and Dr. Gale was head of the
Oriental Languages department of
the University of California.
First Human
Eye Shipped
By U' Hospital
The first human eye to be shipped
from University Hospital to the "Eye
Bank for Sight Restoration" was
rushed in a refrigerated pac1pge by
plane to New York yesterday.
Dr. F. Bruce Fralick, chairman of
the Department of Ophthalmology in
the hospital, said that the eye was
voluntarily donated by an unidenti-
fied woman patient who was suffering
from a lesion.
According to hospital officials, the
ideal method of performing the cor-
neal transplanting operation for re-
storing sight to blind persons, is to
make the transfer immediately from
one patient to another. However,
they said, under ideal conditions of
refrigeration, the eye can be used
after as long as a four day period.
Hospital officials said that ship-
ment of eyes to the Eye Bank was
not unusual nationally but that it
was the first time ene had been sent
from University Hospital.
Following removal of the eye, it was
rushed from the hospital to Willow
Village airport and carried from there
by plane to New York City.

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK, Oct 24 - Warned
that it was in danger of becoming a
"conplete laughing stock" by its
legalistic wrangles, the powerful
Steering Committee of the United
Nations Assembly decided tonight to
recommend that the assembly con-
sider India's charges that South
Africa is discriminating against its
Indian .citizens.
In effect, the result of the 21
hour argument which involved
Russia, the United States and the
United Kingdom was that the
Committe put the question up to
the Assembly and let that body de-
cide what to do with it.
The issue arose when South Africa
demanded -that the Steering Com-
mittee block India's charges from go-
ing before the Assembly. South Afri-
can Delegate Jan Christian Smuts
withdrew this demand but continued
to insist that the welfare of the In-
dians living in his country is a strict-
ly domestic issue. He agreed, how-'
ever, that the assembly itself would
have to rule on whether he was
Earlier the Spanish question and
-the battle of the veto arose in Gen-
eral Assembly discussion.
Two formal votes were taken.
Former Senator Warren R. Austin,
of thesUnited States, proposed that
the Assembly be advised that the
question should. go to its political
committee and its legal committee
simultaneously. On that question
the United States, United King-
dom, New Zealand, Venezuela and
South Africa voted affirmatively
while Russia, China and France
veted against, with the Ukraine
and Belgium abstaining.
Then Andrei A. Vishimsky, Soviet
Delegate, pressed a motion that the
question be referred to a joint meet-
ing of the political and legal commit-
tees. The Ukraine and France joined
him in favor of that; the United
States, the United Kingdom, New
Zealand and South Africa opposed
VA To Build
Hospital Here
University officials said yesterday
that the announcement by the Vet-
erans Administration of a 500-bed
general medical and surgical hospital
to be constructed here for veterans
was a "complete surprise" to them.
The Veterans Administration also
said that the 500-bed tuberculosis
hospital, originally authorized for
Ann Arbor, would be transferred to
Detroit. The proposed site of the tu-
berculosis hospital was outside the
city limits and across the river from
the University Hospital, but there is
no indication that the same site will
be selected for the new hospital.
General structural recommend-
tions for the new hospital include
many modern features, such as the
use of structural glass, which devi-
ates from the traditional structure
for hospitals, auditoriums, radio out-
lets in each room, and specially oper-
ated oxygen units.

Official Says
Decontrol Is Attempt
To Retain Partial OPA
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Oct. 23 - An-
other major amputation of price
controls-this time in the non-food
field-was under way today within
the OPA.
One informed official who would
not permit use of his name said it
is expected to match the action of
last midnight which yanked price
lids from all foods and drinks ex-
cept sugar, syrups and rice.
Big Job
"We are trying to round out all
these actions for announcement by
Nov. 1 or before but it's a big job
and we may not hit that deadline,"
he said.
The announcement is expected be-
fore the Nov. 5 elections. It will be
another step in the decontrol pro-
cess President Truman speeded up
when he removed price ceilings from
meats and livestock.
Reduce Controls
The general aim is to reduce con-
trols to the minimum before the new
Congress convenes in January.
Some Congressmen and candi-
dates of both parties have threatened
to kill off OPA. Administration lead-
ers hopeto maintainuceilingsmon
rents, automobiles,0' building ma-
terial, some basic low-cost clothing,
many durable goods, and scarce
items such as sugar and soap.
Salvage Program
In an effort to salvage this much
of the control program from a pos-
sibly hostile Congress, orders have
gone out to cut away every price
ceiling that is unimportant to busi-
ness or living costs or where supplies
are near balance with demand.
"We had hoped to hold all these
decontrols for one big announce-
ment but some must be released
from time to time," the official ex-
plained. "Once a decision is made
within the OPA staff here, trade
leaks often develop that force quick
City Council tsAo t
otes Adoption
Of U' Offer
$97,000 Designated
For Local Facilities
Ann Arbor Common Council voted
to accept a University offer of $97,600
for the purpose of expanding local
water and sewage facilities in a spe-
cial meeting last night.
Also embodied in the University
offer was an amount of $20,000 year-
ly to be paid to the city over a ten
year period for the services of seven
policemen to serve the campus area.
Approved too was a University pay-
ment of $7,500 which will release
them from the free bed obligation to
the city at University Hospital.
In explaining terms of the agree-
ment to the council, Mayor William
E. Brown Jr. pointed out that the Re-
gents have also promised to ask the
State Legislature for a $200,000 ap-
propriation for the construction of
an additional fire station in Ann Ar-
Terming the offer a preliminary
agreement which heralds a period of
new relations between the city and

the University, the mayor said that
no other city in the country has made
an agreement of this kind with an
educational institution.
Explaining thai the University will
pay the city an additional $5,000 for
each new building constructed,
Mayor Brown estimated that the en-
tire agreement should net the city
$1,000,000 over the next ten years.
This will amount to about 14 per cent
of the city's annual budget.
In outlining plans for immediate
expansion of the city's overloaded
sewage disposal plant, the mayor
said that the University offer will be

Miss Maynor will give the first of
several specia concerts planned by
the Society because of the large stu-

will be the second in the current

Miss Maynor, a graduate of Hamp-

leading concert sopranos of her time.
She had planned to be a teacher un-
til friends, convinced of the greatness
of her voice, persuaded her to con-
tinue her musical studies. It was
while she was a student at the West-

discovered by Serge Koussevitzky,
who aided her in a rapid rise to fame.
Now in his early twenties, Istomin

Willow Run Village, home of more
