Wallace Hits
U.S. Foreign
Policy Again
'Still a Democrat,'
He States at Rally
By The Associated Press
DETROIT, Nov. 2-Henry A. Wal-
lace told a Democratic rally today
that he stands "exactly" where he
did Sept. 12 when he made the Madi-
son Square Garden attack on admin-
istration foreign policy that cost him
the post of commerce secretary.
He flung his statement into the
teeth of Democratic state officials,
some of whom attempted to dissuade
Wallace from commenting at all on
foreign policy.
However, the tall, graying Wallace
backed down on an earlier promise
to newsmen to cite Sen. Vandenberg
(Rep., Mich.) in his speech and a
member of his entourage said he did
so under pressure of Michigan party
Critical of Vandenberg
Wallace has been critical of Van-
denberg's foreign policy views in
speeches outside the senator's home
state of Michigan.
Michigan Democrats, however, are
in disagreement over Vandenberg's
ideas and at least one state candidate
has endorsed the Republican senator's
foreign policy views.
Wallace's only reference to Van-
denberg came in relation to "the good
old (Republican) doctrine of turn the
govenment over to the big boys."
"This," he said, is Taftism. This
is Vandenbergism."
'Still A Democrat'
"I am still a Democrat," Wallace
told a crowd estimated by observers
to number between 7,000 and 10,000
persons. "I am still a progressive. On
foreign policy, I stand exactly where
I stood Sept. 12 (in his New York
address) and I'm not taking back a
single word."
Failure to make "reforms" in the
capitalistic system, he then contin-
ued, will in the event of another
world-wide depression, result in "a
strong communistic wave engulfing
a large part of the world."
"People believe in food first and
freedom second," he told the rally,
which was arranged by the CIO Po-
litical Action Committee in concert
with Democratic state leaders.
Petition Drive
For State FEPC
To Be Started
The petition campaign for state
FEPC legislation will be launched
officially in Ann Arbor with a color-
ful motorcade, Wednesday, George
Antonofsky president of the FEPC
Coordinating Committee, announced
Final plans for the local drive,
which is part of the state-wide cam-
paign to secure 150,000 signatures by
Dec. 1, will be formulated when the
committee meets at 7 p.m. tomor-
row in the Union, he declared.
Coordinating Committee
Members of the Coordinating Com-
mittee representing AVC, IRA, SRA
and MYDA and the Lawyers Guild
will complete plans for the distri-
bution of F-EPC literature and the
circulation of petitions throughout
the campus and the city.
Proposals for a huge rally featur-
ing nationally prominent speakers
will also be discussed at the meet-
ing, Antonofsky sai.

Literature Circulated by Students
According to present plans, cam-
paign literature will be circulated by
student members of the five campus
groups, while the League of Women
Voters, the Independent Citizens
Committee, and the Ann Arbor Co-
operative Council will conduct an in-
tensive door-to-door drive for sig-
During the 24 day campaign, the
drive will also be extended to Willow
Village, where the Willow Village
AVC has pledged to get 1,000 signa-
tures of registered voters. In addi-
tion an FEPC campaign will be car-
ried on in Ypsilanti by the Wash-

Ne phewS Officially
Honor Aunt Ruth'
"Aunt Ruth" Buchanan, the lady
who has received commendations
from Admiral Nimitz, General Wain-
wright, and countless other ranking
officers for her work of writing over
17,000 letters to servicemen during
the war, was officially honored by
her, many "nephews" at a meeting
last night in Hill Auditorium.
The principal speaker was Briga-
dier General Herbert Holdridge, USA
(Ret), who commanded the huge Ad-
jutant General's School in Wash-
ington, D. C., and who was "Aunt
Ruth's" first "nephew" in World
War I.

The controversy developed at the
opening meeting of the General As-
sembly's powerful political commit-
tee, which has before it such ex-
plosive issues as the Soviet arms
limitation proposals, demands for
action against Franco Spain and
the veto question.
One of the high spots in the debate
was a clash between Senator Tom
Conally (Dem., Tex.), U. S. represen-
tative, and Soviet representative
Andrei Y. Vishinsky over the broad
principle of the committee's right to
review the Security Council's ac-
Vishinsky insisted that the com-
mittee had no "mandate" to criti-
cize the council, while Connally
contended the committee had the
entire report of the council before
it and could discuss any part of
the report dealing with the admis-
sion of new members.
"What good does information do if
you can't talk about it?" Connally
asked, "if you have to whisper it and
mark it top secret? Why should we
be afraid to discuss anything that

The committee already had unani-
mously recommended that the as-
sembly approve the membership ap-
plications of the three nations previ-
ously recommended by the security
council-Sweden, Iceland and Af-
ghanistan-and Vishinsky said it
should limit its action to that.
Lawyers Guild
Decries Abuse
Of Civil Rights
The University chapter of the Na-
tional Lawyers Guild yesterday rep-
rimanded Detroit's Mayor Jeffries
and Police Commissioner Ballinger
for failure to prosecute persons guil-
ty of discrimination in public places.
Referring to "recent incidents in-
volving the Barlum Tower's Coffee
Shop," the lawyers charged that the
people of Detroit had to resort to
"public protests and picketing" be-
cause officials failed to enforce the
Michigan Civil Rights Act.
Civil Rights Act
The Civil Rights Act, sections
17115-146 and 17115-147 of the Mich-
igan Penal Code, requires managers
and personnel of public places to
provide "equal accommodations" for
all persons regardless of race, color
or religion. It was passed by the
legislature in 1937.
The laywers demanded that Mayor
Jeffries and Commissioner Ballinger
"inquire immediately into the ap-
parent flagrant disregard" of the act.
Although conceding a "widespread
misconception that a person discrim-
inated against in a public restaurant
For reasons of race has recourse only
to civil action," the lawyers charged
that "Detroit authorities are aware
that such discrimination constitutes
a misdemeanor and that action
should be brought by the city pros-
ecutor as in the case of all criminal

Bumps Elliott Sparks Attack As He
Breaks Through Twice for Scores
Special to The Daily
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., Nov. 2 - Held to a lone touchdown in the first
half, Michigan exploded with a 14-point barrage after the intermission to
smother Minnesota, 21-0, before a sellout throng of 58,575 fans this after-
noon at Memorial Stadium.
It took the Wolverines two periods to snap out of a two-game lethargy
which had seen them tied by Northwestern, beaten by Illinois and today
outplayed by Minnesota for nearly 30 minutes. But then working with
beautiful deceptiveness behind a fast-charging line, the Maize and Blue
took complete charge of the game. V

Rain, Shine or Snow--Garg
Will Go on Sale Tomorrow

The "Economics Department Hand-
book," a humor magazine called "The
Gargoyle," or "An English Major's
Dream," goes on sale throughout the
campus at 7:45 a.m. tomorrow, if any
of the salesmen show up by that time.
The Gargoyle, edited and published
by the cul-de-sac of nondescript
students who inhabit the Garg of-
fice, is generally recognized as con-
stituting no threat to world peace.
"In fact," Managing Editor Ed Mc-
Kinlay pointed out yesterday, 'I
guess you could say we're for world
peace as much as anyone." McKin-
lay hails from the Pacific Coast and
therefore is in an unchallenged po-
sition to speak.
Student Talent
All material in the 32-page No-
vember Gargoyle has been written
by student talent, such as it is, and
while some of it is extremely humor-
ous, notably the jokes taken from
"The Law Review," most of it is
barely readable. Some of the sopho-
mores on the staff smiled at a few of
the stories, but this is hardly a re-
liable index.
The Garg has started a national
furor, reported in this issue, through
its survey to determine the date of
Thanksgiving. Some say one thing,
some another. Most electrifying
comment came from Abner Double-
day, founder of baseball, who said,
"You'll never get the Tarrytown
Knickerbockers to approve a 168-
game season."
"Garg standards are as high as
they ever were," the managing editor

tures will be. required for each

Candidates must submit 50-
word qualification statements and
pay a registration fee of $1 when
they turn in their petitions. Eli-
gibility cards will also be required.

pointed out. The President could not
be reached for comment.
Takes Cue from Insight
Taking a cue from Insight, the
Garg has asked prominent campus
figures to debate the topic, "Resolved,
that America should." Said the
Technic editorially last June, "Our
fathers did, and so did our forefathers
before them. Future generations will
also. If it was good enough for them
and it will be good enough for the
others, then we feel that America
should. And do it now."
Hopes for selling out the magazine
before noon run high in the Gar-
goyle office. "Some people will pay
for anything," Sally Rand, circulation
manager, cautioned neophyte sales-
men yesterday.
OPA End Here
Makes Women
Workers Sad
At least five people in Ann Arbor
will be unhappy when OPA's Price
Control Board No. 3381.1 officially
closes its doors to the public to-
These five women are the last re-
maining of a once huge force here
which staffed what has been termed
America's most unpopular and most
necessary wartime bureaucracy for
price control and rationing. Their
unhappiness stems not only from the
fact that they will soon be unem-
ployed but that they have just com-
pleted a move into new and more
sumptuous offices at 100 W. Huron.
According to Mrs. Henry C. Bran-
son, manager of the local board, the
office will be closed tomorrow al-
though the staff will have until Dec.
12 to clean up their remaining work
before receiving their dismissal.
But all will not be sweet for those
who lose their ration books or for
newly discharged veterans, for, Mrs.
Branson stated, with the continuance
of sugar rationing, a more complicat-
ed procedure to get new or duplicate
ration boks will be instituted since
the local board will turn over its work
to the district office in Detroit.
An effort is being made, Mrs. Bran-
son, added, to secure jobs for her un-
employed staff. Most of the workers
who manned the office in wartime
were dismissed when rationing was
lifted and have already been assimi-
lated into other jobs.

Another shining light in the
Michigan victory was Elmer Ma-
dar,hwhose great defensive play
time and again cleaned out Gopher
blockers trying to escort their ball
carriers around the Wolverine
flanks. On the offensive side, Ma-
dar grabbed Bob Chappuis' second
period aerial on the Minnesota 3
to set up the initial Michigan
for two periods the partisan crowd
watched its Gophers play havoc with
the highly-touted Michigan offense.
It saw the Minnesota backs grind out
105 yards on the ground to the Wol-
verines' 73 and it was thrilled as
the Gopher forwards reared up and
threw back two Michigan thrusts
inside the Minnesota 30 before the
visitors could break the ice.
But the Michigan reserve strength
was just too much for the valiant
Gophers. The Wolverine line broke
through to check Minnesota with a
mere 25 yards on the ground in the
second half while the Maize and
Blue ran the ends and pounded the
tackles for 110 yards.
In passing the Michigan edge
was even more pronounced. Com-
pleting six out of 16 aerials, the
Michigan team piled up 174 yards
by passing to Minnesota's 40. The
Wolverine backfield let only three
tosses leak through out of the 14
the Gophers tried. And one of the
heaves was completed for no gain
in the flat zone.
F'or the sixth straight time this
fall Michigan scored first, but it
wasn't until shortly after the start
of the second period that the Wol-
verines managed to hit pay dirt. The
touchdown series started when Bob

N ow weii Uncer way
With six of the 12 apartments in
University Terrace occupied, the East
Quadrangle extension has been
scheduled as the next of the Uni-
versity's eight major building pro-
jects to be completed.
If construction progress continues
at the present rate, the East Quad-
rangle unit should be ready for oc-
cupancy in late spring. Work is now
being done on the second floor. Stone
ledgings for window sills have been
difficult to obtain, but construction
slow-downs have been avoided by
"stepping" the masonry around win-
dows until the ledges were available.
Less Rapid Progress
Progress on the dormitory on Ob-
servatory has been less rapid. It is
not expected to be completed before
the opening of the 1947-48 academic
year. The two halls will house 1,500
students on an emergency basis and
will be reserved for veterans until
more normal housing arrangements
can be made.
Of the four buildings under con-
struction for educational usage, the
greatest progress has been made on
the addition to the East Engineering
Building. The first floor of that
structure is completed and most of
the forming and pouring on the sec-
ond floor is finished. A shortage of
carpenters has delayed work on this
Chemistry Addition Progressing
The mezzanine floor of the Chem-
istry Building extension is now com-
pleted and the forming of the bal-
ance of the first floor is well under
way. Both of the extensions are
scheduled to be used during the 1947
Summer Session, although sections of
them will probably be open earlier.
Column footings are complete for
the General Service Building and
wall footings are half done. Progress
has been delayed because of a lack
of structural steel, which is expect-
ed this month.
Excavations have been completed
for the Business Administration
Building and column footings are
two-thirds done. The General Ser-
vice and Business Administration
buildings are the most recent of the
educational buildings to have been
started, and tentative completion
dates have not been set.
University officials are now con-
templating further expansion of
campus building facilities. Plans for
additional structures, including a
General Library extension, will be
authorized as soon as provision can
be made for financing them.

Students Show
Adaptability to

'U' Life

The rapidly increasing ease with
which veteran students are making
the transition from the military life
to the University life is described by
Associate Dean Erich A. Walter, of
the literary college, in the current
issue of The Michigan Alumnus.
Dean Walter points out that while
18 per cent of the 718 veterans en-
rolled in the Fall Term of 1945-46
failed to earn a C-average record, the
figure was lowered to 16 per cent of
the veteran enrollment of 1,906 in
the Spring Term of 1946, and to 13
per cent of the 1,371 veterans en-
rolled in the Summer Session of 1946.
The number of veterans who failed
to meet the minimum scholastic re-
quirement was thus reduced by five
per cent in one year, reflecting "a
consistent improvement in our vet-
erans' academic standing," Dean
Walter says.
Faculty Not Surprised
He says that this improvement was
not surprising to the faculty mem-
bers who have veterans in their
classes, since they have found -the
veteran to be "an exceptionally earn-
est and serious student."
Dean Walter describes the student
