Greek Official Says Albania,
Yugoslavia Aid Leftist Rebels

LONDON, Sept. 25 -(A')=- A. Greek
embassy spokesman declared toda3
that heavy fighting in the moun-
tains of northern Greece was "an in-
vasion of subversive elements fron
Albania and Yugoslavia with the con-
nivance of the two governments."
Both British and Greek governmen
officials referred to the fighting as
small scale "civil war," with the
Slavic states backing leftist insur-
gents and Britain supplying arms t(
the Greek government.
Greek sources charged that Yugo-
slavia and Albania were furnishin;
military supplies to the rebels, and
spokesman for the British foreig
office said there was "no reason t(
doubt" this allegation.

Spurlin JoinS
French Sff S
Escribano Is Added
To Spanish Faculty
Prof. Paul M. Spurlin, formerly a
member of the University of Ala
bama faculty, will teach French Lit-
erature of the 18th Century as
member of the Romance language
department this fall.
Professor Spurlin received his B.A
from Emery University, attended the
University of Lyons in France, anc:
completed his studies for his Ph.D
at Johns Hopkins University. He i
the author of "Montesqtiieu in Amer-
ica, 1760-1801" and is gathering ma-
terial on Rousseau in America.
A new addition to the faculty o-
the Spanish department is Prof. Fred-
erico Sanchez y Escribano, who came
from Connecticut College to take
over the work of Prof. Charles P
Wagner who retired last year. Dr
William G. Merbat, who received hip-
B.A. at the University of Toledo, speni
the war years teaching English ir
Brazil and has returned to the Unit-
ed States to be assistant professor oi
Romance languages here where he
r'eceived his Ph.D. He is also head o
the Department of Romance Lan-
guages at University High School.
Dr. Clifford H. Prater has resgnec
from the Romance languages depart-
ment to go to the University of Cali-
fornia at Los Angeles.

y nations in the Russian sphere of
influence.
Allied military leaders in Athens
1ave said they would not be surprised
:t some sort of an "invasion" before
vinter weather makes fighting al-
nost impossible in the mountains.
Disorders centered in the border
region bitterly disputed at the Paris
'eace Conference-the bastion be-.
ween the Russian sphere of Europe
nd troubled Greece itself. The reb-
-ls are composed principally of groups
apposed to the imminent return of
ding George II from wartime exile
:n Britain.
Strict secrecy was imposed on the
Movement of the king, called home by
a better than 2 to 1 majority in the
ecent plebiscitie. The king is ex-
ected to depart for his homeland to-
norrow or Friday.
A source close to the king said his
eturn was expected to help "stabil-
ae" the country, adding: "British and
\merican foreign policy is being at-
acked over the body of Greece in a
'ar of nerves. The objective (of the
attackers) is to reach the Mediterran-
an and threaten the lifeline of west-
rn powers' communication."
Greek Premier Constantin Tsal-
iaris, speaking at strategic Salonika
n the heart of the troubled moun-
ainous region, said the fighting was
io longer a "question of order" but
'a question of war," and that his
overnment would use "all means at
ts disposal" to crush the insurgents.

Individual Use
Of Visual Aids
Is Predicted
Wartime Development
Is Cited by Lemler
Audio-visual aids-motion pictures,
filmstrips, slides, and recordings-will
be used by the individual student on
a larger scale in the future, Ford L.
Lemler, supervisor of the Univer-
sity's Bureau of Visual Aids, believes.
Army and Navy experience in new
uses for these educational aids prove,
according to Lemler, the practicabil-.
ity of a "visual aids library" to be
used by the individual student.
Visual aids have been used primar-
ily for group showings. The Bureau
of Visual Education last year sup-
plied films to 642 MVichigan schools
and adult groups, but rarely has the
individual student been able to se-
cure these materials for his own use.
"Individual study enabled men in
the Army and Navy to qualify for
higher ratings or to prepare for col-
lege entrance after discharge," Lem-
ler points out. "Their study was fur-
thered by the use of filmstrips .and
other visual aids which were stocked
by service libraries and checked out
to the men just as books were"
"Libraries, particularly those of
educational institutions, should in-
clude on their shelves collections of
audio-visual aids such as films, slides,
and recordings. A few study booths
equipped with projectors and ear-
phones would enable the student to
make maximum use of these mate-
rials."
Better Movies for BMind
Blind persons soon will have the
benefit of advance summaries of new
films in braille. They will no longer
have to rely on their friends for as-
sistance in explaining movie scenes
when the dialogue stops.

A-BOMB AFTERMATH:
Navy Cleansing Bikini Ships
Contaminated by Radioactivity

4

WASHINGTON, Sept. 25 -(IF)-
About 75 ships which anchored in
Bikini Lagoon after the second bomb
explosion two months ago are "sus-
pected" of radioactivity and are be-
ing cleansed, Operations Crossroads
announced today.
The Joint Army-Navy Task Force
said that "the presence of a radioac-
tive residue in the salt water lines and
condensors," had been discovered in
some ships now at West Coast ports,
Hawaii and Guam. It said that spe-
cial methods for cleaning the sides
and bottoms of "ships suspected of
being dangerous, together with the
use of oxygen rebreathing apparatus
and a system of checking and quar-
antine, are being carried out in or-
der to render the ships radiologically
safe."
Other Ships Not Endangered
There is, the Task Force statement
declared, "no hazard for personnel
not actively engaged in operation,
repair or cleaning the contaminated
portions of the ships." The Task
Force hastened to add this meant
the presence of ships in the harbor
constituted no danger.,
Capt. George M. Lyon, radiological
safety officer, emphasized that there
is no danger from causual contact
with radioactive portions of the
ships." The great majority of ships
suspected of radioactivity have shown
no more than one-tenth of one
Roentgen in 24 hours," he told a re-
porter, adding that the exact amount
of radiation could not be revealed,
Radiologists' Estimate
Lyon's reference was to the unit of
radiation measurement used for pur-
poses of radiological safety. Radiolo-
gists estimate that it would take at
Yet Dental Work
Diability Exams
World War II veterans in Ohio,
Michigan and Kentucky who have
service-connected dental conditions
soon may receive horne-town den-
tal care when Veterans Administra-
tion dental clinic treatment is not
"feasibly available." The VAS is ne-
gotiating with dental 'societies in the
three states to set up a fee sched-
ule program by which VA will pay
for the treatments.

least a 24-hour dosage of between 300
and 500 Roentgens to be lethal.
The residues on the ships are of
both the more powerful gamma type.
and the slower radiating beta type.
Clinging to the steel of hulls or decks
or to salt water lines or condensers,
the amount of energy loosed by them
is harmless. The danger would be if
a man swallowed or breathed mater,
ial containing released fission frag-
ments.
Seven new members have beeti
added to the German faculty to meet
an increased enrollment of 1,800 in
German courses, the department ark-
nounced yesterday.
Among the new faculty members
to handle the 50 percent increase
are William H. Bettger, formerly a
teaching fellow at the University of
Colorado; Norman H. Binger, who
has been in the Army as a supervisor
and instructor of German prisoners
of war in Arizona, and Francis A.
Brown, a former teaching assistant
at the University of California.
Joseph A. Fihn, a graduate of As-
sumption College, has been a teach-
ing fellow at the University during
the summer session. Roger C. Nor-
ton, a University graduate, has been
in the Army, and Warren G. Yates,
who graduated from the University
in June, is a teaching fellow. Also
back on the faculty is Prof. Otto G.
Graf, who has been in the Army for
four years.

The University Polonia Students'
Club will present a lecture on "Rus-
sia in the Balkans" by Reuben H.
Markham at 8 p.m. Sunday in the
Rackham Auditorium.
Markham, who was in the Balkans
in 1944 as deputy director for the
Office ofnWar Information, and re-
turned in 1945 as foreign corres-
pondent for the Christian Science
Monitor, was expelled by the Rus-
sians from Rumania and all Soviet-
dominated lands in 1946. He re-

turned to this country, where he has
been lecturing extensively and mak-
ing frequent contributions to nation-
al magazines.
Going first to Bulgaria as a mis-
sionary educator under the American
Board of Boston, Markham spent the
first World War working for the YM-
CA in Russia andFrance. He was
obliged to resign from the Mission
becaus'e of his vigorous opposition to
the persecution of workers and pea-
sants by the fascist-like regime.
