OPA Remains
Only on Rent,
Sugar, Rice
All Wage, Salary
Ceilings Abolished
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 9-Price
ceilings on everything except dwell-
ings, sugar and rice were wiped away
completely by President Truman to-
night in one sweeping order which
spelled the speedy end of OPA.
All government controls on wages
and salaries, too, were abolished ex-
cept in cases of government seizure,
like the soft coal mines. Thus the
Wage Stabilization Board goes out of
While the OPA rent ceilings will be
continued, Mr. Truman indicated that
they may be increased-"it may be
that some adjustment of rents will be
required," he said. But housing ex-
pediter Wilson Wyatt announced that
the sales and rental ceilings on new
homes built under the Veterans
Emergency Housing Program will
stay as is.
Everything Off List
The presidential order removed
price ceilings from clothing, automo-
biles, building materials, furniture,
metals, paper, coal, laundry-every-
thing,sin fact, that still remained un-
der ceilings after the avalanche of
recent decontrol actions except the
scarce items of housing, sugar and
The order was effective as of 12:01
a.m. Sunday, but price law violations
before that time still may be prose-
cuted and businessmen are required
to keep their records for another year.
Begun Before Election
Mr. Truman acted four days after
the election which saw Republicans
capture control of the Senate and
House in a campaign which swirled
around the slogan "had enough?" (of
controls and shortages). The action
was in the works before election day,
however, and was delayed only be-
cause of the extensive consultations
necessary among the officials con-
Robb Predicts
FEPC Petition
Drive Success
The local FEPC Petition Campaign
is one of the most efficiently organ-
ized drives in the entire state, Dean
Robb, executive secretary of the
Metropolitan Detroit FEPC Coordi-
nating, Council, declared yesterday.
On the basis of his observation of
similar groups throughout Michigan,
Robb believes that the state-wide
campaign to secure the signatures of
eight per cent of persons who voted
for the office of governor in the re-
cent election will be successful.
Every Organization Active
In support of this optimistic pre-
diction, Robb pointed out that every
major church, labor and civic organi-
zation in the state is actively en-
gaged in the drive to compel the
Michigan Legislature to consider es-
tablishment of aState FEPCO .
Moreover, Robb contends that
Governor-elect Kim Sigler's approval
of the FEPC Petition Campaign on
the grounds that it will provide the
people of Michigan with an oppor-
tunity to impress their political con-
victions on the Legislature, lends
added strength to the drive.
Must Increase Efforts
On the other hand, Robb warned
that if approximately 150,000 signa-

tures of registered voters are to be
obtained before the Dec. 1 deadline,
groups participating in the cam-
paign must continue to increas'e their
Although the expense of conduct-
ing the drive is being held to a mini-
mum, Robb indicated that most
groups are faced with a serious finan-
cial problem. From seven to eight
thousand dollars will be required to
carry out the campaign, he said.

Vice -President Marvin L. Niehuss
yesterday spiked rumors the Univer-
sity will cut back its multi-millon
dollar building program and reduce
enrollment in anticipation of de-
creased state appropriations.
"The University's building program
will c'ontinue," Niehuss said and add-
ed'that total enrollment will increase
again next semester as previously an-
nounced by President Ruthven.
Spring from Election
The rumors gre~w out of Tuesday's
election results in which the veter-
ans' bonus and sales tax diversion
proposals received heavy majorities
despite warnings by many candidates
and educators that passage would dis-
rupt state finances.

Lewvis Strengthened
By Price Decontrol
WASHINGTON, Nov. 9-()-Init-
ial reaction from persons close to the
coal contract negotiations was that
tonight's price decontrol order may
strengthen John L. Lewis' hand in
his wage boost demands against the
Lewis had argued that prior price
decontrols have raised miners' living
costs to the point where their pay re-
quires an increase. The further price
decontrol apparently will give him
fresh material for arguing this point.
While coal prices are removed by
President Truman's order the wages
of soft coal miners remain under
government control as long as the
mines are under government seizure.

desiring to appear on the program
must notify him at the Union Stu-
dent Offices before 5 p.m. tomorrow.
Election statements will also be
broadcast over WPAG from 7:50 to
8 a.m. tomorrow and Tuesday.
The Legislature elections will be
held from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tues-
day and from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Wednesday. Polls will be stationed
on the diagonal, at the engineering
arch, in the lobby of Angell Hall and
in front of the Economics Building
and the University Museum. Ballot
boxes will also be stationed from 8:30
a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Law Quadrangle
and from 2 to 4 p.m. on the ground
floor of the University Hospital.
Students at Willow Run will have
a special ballot box stationed at
West Lodge from 7 to 9:30 a.m.
The voting will be conducted ac-
cording to the Hare plan of propor-
tional representation. Under this
system each voter must number his
choices in order of preference, al-
though he may vote for as many can-
didates as he pleases. The quota of
ballots necessary to elect a candidate
with this system is approximately the
total number of ballots cast divided
by the number of posts to be filled.
If a candidate receives more than
the necessary quota of ballots, after
they are distributed into piles for
each candidate according to the first
choice of each voter, the excess bal-
lots are redistributed to the candi-
dates indicated next in order of pref-
erence. Candidates receiving the few-
est ballots are eliminated and all of
their ballots are redistributed.
This process is continued until the
proper number of candidates have
been elected.
Terrell Whitsitt, election chair-
man, warned nominees yesterday that
distribution of printed matter con-
cerning the election in the area
bounded by S. University, N. Univer-
sity, E. University and S. State is
punishable by disqualification. Slan-
derous and libelous statements are
also subject to punishment. There is
a $5 limit on campaign expenditures.

Huge Crowd Sees Maize and Blue
Notch 29th Victory over Spartans
It was a great day for 77,134 fans and 47 Michigan footballers.
Rolling almost at random through Michigan State's line and intercept-
ing Spartan tosses with reckless abandon the Wolverines pounded out a
55-7 triumph over the outclassed State eleven yesterday afternoon at Michi-
gan Stadium.
Ten Wolverines shared scoring honors for the day as the Maize and
Blue amassed 293 yards on the ground and another 207 via air routes
to pile up 500 total yards gained, more than double State's total. Even
in the Spartans' own department, passing, Michigan was supreme.

Detroiter Starting Campaign
To Bring Statue Replica Here

A replica of "Lincoln the Frontiers-
man," a heroic statue by Prof. Avard
T. Fairbanks, University sculptor.,
which is now considered one of the
major works of art in the United
States is to be presented to the Uni-
According to the Associated Press,
John Bodenstab, Detroit business-
man, is launching a drive to raise.
$15,000 to have the replica of the
famed work erected on the University
campus. Although the University
Board of Regents has accepted the
offer of the statue, a site for it has
not yet been selected, the AP said.
Fairbanks, who is an Associate
Professor of Sculpture at the Uni-
versity, spent two years in the crea-
tion of the statue which was com-
pleted in 1340. The original model
was created by Prof. Fairbanks in his
University Hall office and the cast
in bronze was presented to the Ewa
Plantation School near Honolulu as
the gift of Catherline Burks, a teach-
er in Hawaii.
HaTrriagye Lecture
Tickets Available
Tickets for the Marriage Lec-
ture Series are still available at
the Union and League.
The Union reported about 300
tickets yet to be sold and the
League has 75 tickets remaining.
The tickets will be sold to sen-
iors and graduate students from
3 to 4:30 p.m. tomorrow at the
Union desk and the social direc-
tor'soffice of the League. If any

will be sold to juniors from 4:30
to 5:30 p.m.
The possibility of another mar-
riage lecture series in the spring
term was mentioned last night
by W. Lloyd Berridge of the
Health Service.

Prof. Fairbanks has recently com-
pleted a monument of a "Pioneer
Family" which will be placed at the
state capitol of North pakota and is
working now on a Centennial Medal
for the Utah Pioneer Celebration as
well as a "Pony Express" memorial
for the Utah state capitol.
As a leading American sculptor,
Prof. Fairbanks' work here is divid-
ed between instructing a small group
of advanced sculpturing students,
creating works of art himself, and
teaching an auto design and styling
course under the University exten-
sion service.
British Claim
Jews Starting
'All Out War'
LONDON, Nov. 9-(IP)-The Co-
lonial Office acknowledged today that
it was acquainted with reports a
Jewish armada was preparing to
rush the British blockade of Pales-
tine, and Scotland Yard announced
that special guards had been placed
at government buildings in London
as a precaution against an expanded
campaign by Jewish "terrorists."
These developments coincided with
incidents in Palestine which a Brit-
ish officer said were significant be-
cause they meant the Jewish resist-
ance movement had "declared all-
out war."
The incidents included a broad-
cast from the "Voice of Fighting
Zion," secret transmitter of Irgun
Zvai Leumi, underground Jewish or-
ganization, which accepted the re-
sponsibility for the recent bombing
of the British Embassy in Rome and
threatened to "extend our activities"
to countries beyond the Holyland.

ites who were offered the hospitality
of the local bastile for the evening.
Scores of other stimulated fans wer

from the stadium after the game.
Another unique development in the
latter half of the grid clash saw the
entire stadium cheering the under-
dog Spartans' attempts to score. The
lone MSC goal brought partisan fan's
wholehearted yells.
Gone, however, were the midfield
melees between Spartan and Michi-
gan rooters which featured earlier
grid tilts between the rival schools.
The only trouble experienced by of-
ficials were swarms of moppets who
couldn't wait until after the game to
strip the goalposts of decorations.

This is the statement of Dr. Frank
E. Robbins, assistant to the Presi-
dent, made in response to a query by
Student Legislator Lou Orlin. In out-
lining the University's position, Dr.
;Dobbins explained that, while there
are many students living within 200
niles of the University who would
the able to enjoy a holiday at home,
to suspend classes for the two days
would be an injustice to students who
live too far from the campus to re-
turn home for the week-end and
would have to remain in Ann Arbor
Dr. Robbins pointed out, however,
that in the literary college, compul-
sory attendance is no longer required
o that "cuts",on the Friday and Sat-
urday following Thanksgiving can not
be counted as double or triple ab-
sences as was once the case.
