Say Goering
Had Poison
When Seized
Vial Was Hidden in
Alimentary Tract
By The Associated Press
NUERNBERG, Oct. 26-Hermann
Goering had the vial of poison with
which he committed suicide from the
time he was captured, and may have
hidden it in his navel, a report by
the four-power commission investi-
gating his death said today.
Vial Hidden
At some time the vial was in his
alimentary tract, and it could have
been hidden for a time in the toilet
of his cell, the report added.
Prison authorities have said the
cartridge-like container for the glass
poison capsule, which was found in
Goering's cell after he committed
suicide less than two hours before he
was to have faced the hangman on
Oct. 16, was about twoinches long
and half an inch thick.
Hazy Details
Still leaving hazy details as to
how Goering cheated the gallows to
which he had been condemned by the
international military tribunal, the
report said:
"There is evidence to support the
view that at one time Goering could
have carried the poison secreted in
the cavity of his umbilical. There is
evidence to prove conclusively it was
not there throughout his imprison-
ment, and at some stage it was in his
alimentary tract."
A similar vial containing poison
was taken from Goering when he was
Obscure Recess
The report added that "an obscure
recess in the inside of the toilet un-
der the overhanging rim could have
concealed the container for a time
without detection except by an
extraordinary search."
The commission completely ab-
solved American soldier guards of
any "dereliction of duty" in permit-
ting Goering to escape the noose at
the final hour, and declared its com-
plete satisfaction with the handling
of prison security by the American
Army. It said there was no evidence
involving German workers in the
Nuernberg prison.
Play Producton
Will Present
Political Satire
"Both Your Houses," Play Produc-
tion's first presentation of the year,
will be presented at 8:30 p.m. Wed-
nesday through Saturday in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
The Maxwell Anderson Pulitzer
Price play is a satire on national poli-
tics in which an idealistic Congress-
man finds himself suddenly up
against a group of old-time politi-
cians who are at work on a big ap-
propriations bill..
The young idealist tries to draw up
a relatively honest bill, but realiz-
ing the futility of this, he makes the
bill so ridiculously dishonest that it
will be killed instantly. Both parties
are so pleased with it, however, that
it goes through both houses.
Dr. William Halstead is directing
the play. Settings are by Robert
Mellencamp. The leading roles will
be played by John Babington, Rich-
ard Stewart, and Charles Benjamin.

Homceoming Defeat Marked by Dizzy
Ball..Handling, Misdirected Throws
Michigan now knows how Northwestern felt a week ago - only worse.
The Wildcats rolled over the Maize and Blue but wound up with a
14-14 tie. Yesterday Michigan dominated Illinois on the ground and in the
air and still lost, 13-9.
A homecoming throng of '85,938 fans saw some of the dizziest ball-
handling of this or any other year as no less than a dozen fumbles, a couple
of misdirected laterals and a pass that strayed from its ,course to become
Illinois' winning score all proved too much for the Wolverines.

plus one for every vacancy that has
occurred since the preceding election.
Stabilize Number
The purpose of the amendment,
Rya Davis, Student Legislature pres-
ident, explained, is to stabilize the
number of legislators elected each se-
mester. Under the present system
the size of the Legislature is set at
one for each 400 students and enough
new candidates are elected each se-
mester to" bring the Legislature up
to its full size.
An abrupt change in the enroll-
ment with this system, Davis said,
means an abrupt change in the size
of the Legislature. The amendment
would mean that enrollment would
determine only the size of the half of
the Legislature being elected in any
one semester.
If the amendment is ratified, 26
legislators will be elected in the Nov.
12 and 13 elections and 23 more in
the spring. Under the present sys-
tem 30 legislators will be elected this
fall and 15 more next semester.

Veto Issue Still Pending As
Assemnbly Ends First Week

NEW YORK, Oct. 26-(,P)-The
United Nations Assembly wound up
its first week of debate today with
the explosive issue of the veto still
the number one question and with
increasing signs that pressure might
force a sharp definition of the uses
of the voting poiver.'
Charter Revision
It was apparent after addresses by
the first 13 nations and several tense
committee sessions that there was
little possibility at this time for a
charter revision to eliminate the
veto. Rather the drive appeared aim-
ed at forcing Russia, which has used
the veto nine times in the security
council, to agree to some modifica-
tions in its use.
Norway, Chile and Turkey today
joined in the campaign for a limita-
tion of some sort. Previous speakers
have deplored "excessive" and "rack-
less" use of the veto.
Time Not Ripe
Halyard M. Lange of Norway said
the time was not ripe to revise the
charter, but he called on the big
powers to reach agreement among
pem ilves and "to exercise the
veto as it was planned to be-a safe-
guard to be used only in, the last re-
Turkish delegate Huseyin Ragip
Baydur said the will of the major-
ity always has prevailed for man-
kind and there was no reason to
make the veto an exception, but

transition, it may not be found pos-
Charity Drive

Student Board Cites
Campus "Saturation"
A suggestion that University stu-
dents actively participate in the Ann
Arbor Community Chest drive was
turned down by a representative stu-
dent committee.
Ray Davis, president of the Student
Legislature, explained last night that
the committee voted unanimously to
abstain from participation on the
grounds that the campus "has been
more than saturated recently by
charity drives." Students had been-
asked to participate by raising Ann
Arbor's quota for the National USO.
Other reasons given for the com-
mittee action were that many stu-
dents are supported by incomes in
other cities where contributions are
made locally and that the large
group of veterans on campus is in no

sible entirely to eliminate the veto,
we should at least consider means of
limiting the field of its application."

Second place honors went to Kap-
pa Kappa Gamma for women and to
Trigon for men.
Delta Delta Delta. and Alpha Omi-
cron Pi among the women's houses
and Chi Psi, Fletcher Hall, and Al-
pha Tau Omega among the men's

The judging committee for the
contest consisted of Dean Erich A.
Walter of the literary college, Ethel
A. McCormick, social director of the
League, Prof. Donald G. Gooch, of
Architecture College, Dick Doeder,
president of the Union, Ray Davis,
president of the Student Legislature,
and Jo Simpson, vice-president of
the League.
Judges Forget
To See Display
A couple hundred residents of the
West Quad, most of them Lloyd
House dwellers are wondering today
whether georgraphical locationi
counts in judging homecoming dis-
Lloyd House's display, which was
in the West Quad's court, "simply
wasn't judged," Norris Domangue,
one of the House's residents said.
He claimed that his house had
registered with the proper authorities
in plenty of time.
"At any rate it hadn't been judged
by noon today (Saturday), and try-
ing to reach the judges was virtually
futile," he said.

Strangely enough, of the 12 Maize
and Blue miscues, only one was re-
covered by the Illini. And one of the
bobles even helped Michigan score
its lone touchdown. Just after the
second period started with Michigan
on the Illini 24, Bob Chappuis faded
to pass.
Finding no receivers and seeing a
broken field before him, the Maize
and Blue tailback burst down the
middle to the vicinity of the Illinois
10 where the ball squirted out of his
hands and high into the air. Howard
Yerges outraced the Illini safety man
deflecting the ball out of bounds on
the visitors' five-yard line.
Wiese Drives
It was still Michigan's ball and
Bob Wiese drove over in two plays
for the tally that put the Wolverines
in front. Jim Brieske came in and
made it nine out of ten conversions
for the season. Thebigreserve cen-
ter's only miss came in the Army
game when Jim Steffy blocked his
second attempt.
But the Wolverines weren't so
lucky on the other 11 fumbles. The
first in the opening stanza brought a
55-yard Wolverine drive to an abrupt
end. Wiese, a great fullback until
he was hurt at the start of the sec-
ond half, burst through the Illini
line for 12 yards to the 22 but lost
the ball to the Illini tackle, Bill
Franks, when he was hit hard there.
The next time Michigan had the
ball Bumps Elliott bobbled it on a
left-end run and was thrown for a
Fatal Touchdown.
Milton H. McCoy, 62, of Crete,
Illinois, died of a heart attack yes-
terday in the Michigan Stadium
when Illinois scored its first touch-
12-yard loss. Wiese made all but
two of the yards back on a dash
through center, but it was fourth
down and the Wolverines were forced
to boot.
Probably the costliest fumbles
came in the dying minutes of play

Sport Tickets
Rationed. Next
Basketball and hockey tickets may
be rationed this semester.
Hack Coplin, chairman of the Stu-
dent Legislature's athletic commit-
tee, announced yesterday that a dis-
tribution system is being planned
"to give everyone an equal chance
to see an equal number of games.",
Coplin said that an acute seating
situation is expected because of the
large student enrollment and the
limited seating capacities in Yost
Field House and in the ice skating
rink. There are 25,000 free admis-
sions to basketball games this semes-
ter, he pointed out, and 7,500 avail-
able seats in the Field House.
Coplin said that he would discuss
possible plans with interested stu-
dents from 1 to 3 p.m. Tuesday in
the Union Student Offices.

Mass Picketing
Called Success
150 Join in Protest
Against Hotel Action
The mass picketing demonstration
yesterday before the Barlum Hotel,
Detroit, in which University students
joined, was declared a "definite
success" by Harriet Ratner, member
of MYDA.
There were approximately 150 on
the picket lines, she said, each of
whom carried leaflets or signs such
as "Jim Crow Must Go," "It's
Against the Law To Discriminate,"
"Fight Together, Eat Together," and
an eight foot poster of Hitler in-
scribed "Discrimination Carries On
My Work."
Sponsored by the American Youth
for Democracy, the picket lines
formed two circles, one on each side
of the Barlum Hotel entrance, and
a smaller circle by the door of the
Coffee Shop whose waitresses have
been accused by MYDA of discrim-
inating against colored members of
their group.
Students from the campus and
Willow Village hitch-hiked to Detroit
early Saturday morning to join the
group made up of representatives of
the Detroit chapter of AYD, stu-
dents from Wayne University, Michi-
gan State College, NMU sailors and
members of the Peoples Church of
Applied Religion, Miss Ratner said.
She described the picketing pro-
cession, which lasted from noon un-
til 2:00 p.m., as very quiet. "We at-
tracted lots of attention from the
crowds, but the large number of
police stationed about the Hotel pre-
vented interference."
The decision to throw a picket line
about the hotel resulted from the
alleged discrimination of the hotel
management plus the physical vio-
lence inflicted upon AYD members
last week. AYD has since filed a
suit for assault and battery against
the Barium Hotel management.

additional classrooms, offices and
laboratories would be a great con-
tribution towards alleviating the

made because the building would be
unsuitable for such uses. It is a one-
story barrack-type structure.

Republican Majority in House
Predicted by Slosson, Lederle

The Republican Party will emerge
from the impending election with a
larger representation in both houses
of Congress, Prof. Preston W. Slos-
son of the history department pre-
dicted yesterday.
Although Prof. Slosson believes
the Republican Party stands an "even
chance of winning control of the
House of Representatives," he consid-
ers the possibility of a Republican
majority in the Senate improbable,
since only one-third of the seats in
the upper chamber will be in conten-

When Congressional elections are



It is "very likely" that there will be
a Republican House of Representa-
tives as a result of next month's
elections, in the opinion of Prof.
John W. Lederle, of the political sci-
ence department.
However, he pointed out that there
are not a sufficient number of "un-
certain" seats in the upper house to
give the Republicans a victory there.
"Things are picking up, but they are
unlikely to take the Senate."
