Two Reports
On Earnings
Waldrop Clarifies
Income Question
The confusion in regard to veter-
ans reporting of compensation was
clarified yesterday by Robert Wal-
drop, Director of the Veterans Serv-
ice .Bureau.
Waldrop explained that veterans
enrolled under Public Law 346 (GI
Bill) mut fill out two different types
of forms for the Veterans Adminis-
tration.
Must File Form
Veterans who received subsistence
checks during the month of October
must file Form 12B with the Detroit
regional office of the VA by Tuesday
or subsistence payments will be sus-
pended, Waldrop said. Form 12B is
a small check-sized blank for re-
porting any compensation received
during August, September or October.
A veteran who received a subsistence
check during October, but did not re-
ceive Form 12B may obtain a dupli-
cate form from the Veterans Service
Bureau, Rm. 1516, Rackham, in or-
der to make the report on time.
Those who did not receive a check
during October are not concerned
with filing this report of compen-
sation, Waldrop said.
Second Type
The second type, Form 7-1961, is
the means of reporting compensation
anticipated for the coming period of
enrollment, Waldrop stated. This re-
port is required of all veterans en-
rolled under PL 346 and must be filed
within 60 days after entering train-
ing under PL 346. These forms were
inclosed with the notice of Authori-
zation of education or Training Sub-
sistance Allowance (large green'
form). For those veterans who ap-
plied for benefits after Sept. 15, 1946,'
Form 7-1961 is sent with the Certifi-
cate of Eligibility and Entitlement.
Local VA officials have advised the'
VSB that subsistence checks for all
veterans should arrive during the
first two weeks of November, Wal-
drop added.
' Chest Drive
Short of Quota
Deadline Extended
Additional Work
Donations by University employees
to the local Community Chest Drive,
Prof. Charles L. Jamison announced
yesterday, have reached the $17,000
mark.
Despite cooperation shown to vol-
unteer solicitors, University dona-
tions total only 80% of the expected
quota. The entire city of Ann Arbor
is $10,000 short of its goal and the
University is responsible for $4,000
of that amount.
For this reason, the Community
Chest Drive, which was to have end-
ed yesterday, has been extended until
Thursday. The University Drive
committee hopes that this extra week
will allow time enough to fulfill the
desired quota.
Almost half of the total amount
raised by the University campaign
was collected by Dr. Charles L. Fish-
er, director of the University Exten-
sion Service, in the form of special
gifts of $25 or more.
The University Community Chest
Committee, which includes Prof.

Jamison, chairman, his personal as-
sistants, his area chairmen and 56
solicitors, has managed to cover
every University building during the
Drive. Steve Vanderwall, special as-
sistant at the business administration
school, has been in charge of the dis-
tribution and collection of all pledge
cards.
Although every University em-
ployee has been contacted personally,
no direct campaign has been conduct-
ed to reach each student. Contribu-
tions by students may be made in
Rm. 204, South Wing, University
Hall.

UN Decides To Discuss
Armament Plan Now
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK, Oct. 31-The United Nations Assembly in a surprising
burst of speed unanimously decided tonight to give Russia's armaments
limitation proposals and the Spanish question a thorough airing and cleared
the way for consideration of a long list of other problems facing the dele-
gates of 51 nations.
The Assembly adopted the 56-item agenda presented by the Steering
Committee with little debate in a 61-minute session which ended at 4:15 p.m.
C.S.T: It thus made up for some of the time lost by the week's speeches in
general debate which were completed this morning when the Soviet Ukrain-
ian Foreign Minister, Dmitri Manuilsky, unleashed a heated attack on Cuba

-A military court of 10 U. S.

MIAMI, Fla., Oct. 31-Prospects
brightened today that the 48 Es-

might soon call the land of the

Thomas B. Shoemaker, deputy
commissioner of immigration, told
the group in sympathetic terms
that deportation had been stayed
until another order is issued by
Attorney Tom Clark. He said he
did not know when it would be
forthcoming and added there was
no hurry.
ROME, Oct. 31-Police seized two

JERUSALEM, Oct. 31-Leaders
of the Palestine Arab Army Futu-
wah called for a parade and mass
meeting tomorrow in Nablus, 33
miles north of Jerusalem, and
many authorities expressed fear it
right be an occasion for an Arab
eruption against the Jews.
The Army leaders declares it was
"not a protest" against bombings
yesterday in which six Arabs were
injured, but other Arab informants
declared it was "a show of
strength of Arabs on the heels ofthe
same sort of demonstration by the
Jews."

The time that the Soviet arms

mains indefinite but it is expeted
that the Assembly's Political Commit-
tee, to which they were referred, will
lose ittle time in sending them to
the floor.
There was a brief flurry after the
agenda was adopted. Australa's
N. J. O. Makin proposed that items
should be referred to committee only
after debate in the Assembly. The
Assembly President, Paul-Henri
Spaak, and Philip Noel-Baker, of'
Britain, objected it would take too
much time and Makin withdrew his1
motion on Spaak's urging.
An expected floor fight between
South Africa and India on the floor
over India's complaint that South
Africa is mistreating Indian Na-
tionals failed to develop when Spaak
announced both sides had agreed
that the dispute should go to the po-
litical and legal committees for ac-
tion.
The Assembly took its first vote
when Cuba, objecting to its veto pro-
posals going to Political Commit-
tee alone, suggested that it be as-
signed to the Political and Legal
committees.

Armas Limitation
Requires Trust
-Prof. Slosson
Security, based on mutual trust,
must precede world-wide arms limi-1
tation Prof, Preston W. Slosson of
the history department, said yester-
day.
* Mere limitation of armaments re-
sults in the reduction of the average
citizen's tax burden and temporarily
allays fear, but, in the final analysis
of history, it does not produce perma-
nent peace, he said.
Prof. Slosson believes that an in-
ternational armed force, controlled
by the UN, must be provided by all
nations and a system of international
inspection of national military re-
sourcesncreated, before world dis-
armament is attempted.
1 Commenting on the proposal that
the United States destroy existing
atomic bombs, advanced by Vyache-
'slav Molotov, Rusian Foreign Minis-
ter, Prof. Slosson stated that America
should retain them, at least until the
second condition is met.
"When an effective system of in-
terational inspection is' finally in-
augurated, I would favor the contri-
bution of all American atomicnweap-
ons to the UN," he declared.
Prof. Slosson advocates fulfill-
ment of the UN Charter provision
calling for a gradually increasing in-
ternational armed force which would
discourage future aggression.

- of actual military facts supported by

Yesterday Austin, head of the U. S.

but added that "effective safeguards
by way of inspection and other

Orders
Coal Op
Vacation Issue
Settlement Is
Basis for Attack
Accuse Adninistration
Of Giving in to Lewis
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Oct. 31-Soft coal
operators tonight accused the ad-
ministration of abdicating "to the
demands of a wilful labor leader" on
the eve of John L. Lewis' new con-
tract talks with government officials.
Wrath Aroused
While Lewis mustered statistics
to bolster his arguments for higher
pay for his United Mine Workers,
the operators' wrath was aroused by
a government settlement in favor of
the miners on the vacation issue of
the present contract.
John D. Battle, executive secretary
of the National Coal Association,
termed the vacation ruling "unwar-
ranted; wholly illegal and further
evidence of the abdication of the ad-
ministration to the demands of a
wilful labor leader."
Power Uncontrollable
Battle said in a statement this la-
bor leader's power had been built up
by the administration to a point
"which it would appear it is now un-
able or unwilling to control."
The vacation order which Battle
described was one by Capt. N. H.
Colisson, coal mines administrator.
It had that vacation pay benefits
were not limited to those who have
been on the payroll only since the
government took over the mines last
spring, but could be allowed on a
pro-rata basis tou miners who had
worked earlier months.
Lewis had demanded that this be
granted, saying that otherwise min-
ers entitled to a share of the $100
yearly vacation payment would get
nothing.
Vacation Bonus
',The effect of this order," com-
mented Battle, "is to require the
mine owners to pay a so-called vaca-
tion bonus to persons who are not.
now in their employ and who have
never been an their employ since the
mines came into possession of the
government."
Battle said it is not a matter of in-
terpreting the government contract
with Lewis, "or what some arbitrator
decided."
The coal mine owners are on the
sidelines as far as tomorrow's gov-
ernment-UMW talks are concerned,
but they are watching developments
closely.
Struggle Over
Treaty Foreseen
WASHINGTON, Oct. 31-(P) -
Secretary of State Byrnes today pic-
tured the road to Allied agreement
on a peace treaty for Germany as
long and rocky.
For a start, he told a news con-
ference, he is summoning top Ameri-
can occupation officials in Germany
home for consultations.
These talks will precede a New
York meeting in which the Big Four
foreign ministers take up the German
treaty question.
Lt. General Lucious D. Clay, dep-
uty American Military governor in
Germany, and his political adviser,

Ambassador Robert D. Murphy, have
been asked to join Byrnes in New
York about Nov. 10, Byrnes said. He
added it was his best guess that the
foreign ministers would not take up
the German question until about
Nov. 20.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 31-The OPA
tonight ordered its 1,642 local boards
to close up shop Nov. 4 and, pushing
on with decontrol, took ceilings off
hats, handbags, neckties and some
other apparel,
Silver Decontrolled
Clothing removed from ceilings
represented ten per cent of the total,
on a dollar basis. Other items decon-
trolled included silver, steel tubing
and alloy steel, household scouring
powders, and iron ore that is shipped
after next Jan. 1.
The clothing action, coming after
the decontrol of shoes, was followed
by a statement from the National
Federation of Apparel Associations
demanding that controls on all cloth-
ing be removed and saying that it is
"time to quit messing up the economy
for the sake of politics."
Inequities Exist
Leo F. Gentner, general manager of
ee, manager of a the Association and former OPA offi-
ed icebox holding cial, said that decontrol is '"being

now exist," he added, "the consumer
would be far better off financially" if
all controls were lifted.

and 43,000 volunteers, means that

Faculty, Staff
Influenza Shots
To Start Today
Today and tomorow morning have
been set aside in the influenza im-
munization program for the inocula-
tion of 4,500 University faculty mem-
bers and personnel.
Faculty members may report to
Waterman Gymnasium at any time
convenient to them and personnel
will report according to schedules set
up in their individual offices.
Approximately one-half of the stu-
dent body had been inoculated by the
time the vaccinating station closed
last night. Dr. Margaret Bell, direc-
tor of tne program, said that Health
Service may be able to take care of
requests after the program is com-
pleted but that there will probably
be some charge. Students who were
unable to report for inoculation at
their scheduled times may be vacci-
nated either today or tomorrow. The
vaccinating stations will be open from
8 a.m. to noon and from 1 to 6 p.m.
today and from 8 a.m. to noon to-
morrow.
Persons who have received only
partial dosage of the vaccine because
of allergies will be taken care of later
at Health Service.

Declares U.S., Soviets
Must Have Agreement
MADISON, Wis., Oct. 31-(')-
-Former Secretary of Commerce Hen-
ry A. Wallace declared in an address
prepared for delivery tonight that
the "first prerequisite for the truly
abundant post-war life to which our
modern atomic technology entitles us
is a frank agreement between the
United States and Russia."
"At the present time," Wallace
told a meeting of the Wisconsin As-
sociation of Cooperatives, "both
countries have plenty of reason to
be suspicious of each other. Both are
spending huge sums on new types of
warfare involving guided missiles,
atomic energy, bacteria and poisons.
Both are vigorously engaged in pro-
pagandizing and proselytizing for
their brand of civilization outside of
their own boundaries."
Mutual suspicion, the former vice-
president declared, has grown to a
point which threatens the peace and
standard of living of every man, wo-
man and child in the world.
"There are plenty of things I don't
like about the Russians," he added
"But there are just as many things
I don't like about our own attitude,
and I know that we cannot have that
mutual disarmament provided for in
the United Nations Charter until the
United States and Russia speak to
each other with complete frankness."
