voted without discussin at a special
general session tonight to impose a
"gag rule" on itself in order to speed
to completion by Oct. 15 its task of

turbulent 15 minutes at the outset
when U.S. Secretary of State Byrnes,
as chairman, announced that Greece
had withdrawn her demands that
Northern Epirus be transferred from
Albania to Greece.

Another category of students who
must turn in football tickets during
the Student Legislature's mass ex-
change next week was announced
yesterday by President Ray Davis.
An upperclassman who secured
tickets for himself and an under-
class coed in a preferred section must
present the tickets and evidence of
upperclass standing at one of the
Legislature's booths Monday or Tues-
day. In exchange for the tickets he
will be given a special receipt whichI
will entitle him to receive two ad-
jacent seats in an underclass section
Friday or Saturday.
Davis said that leniency on the
part of ticket distributors was re-
sponsible for some students receivingj
tickets in the wrong sections. h.
He added that students in this
category who fail to return their
tickets will be subject to disciplinary
action along with those who obtained
preferred seats through error or
The Legislature's ticket exchange

Traditional spot for Michigan pep
rallies, Ferry Field is unusually suit-
able for mass programs with the hill

Kilgore Is Named
WASHINGTON, Sept. 26-(/)-The
Senate War Investigating Committee
selected Senator Kilgore (D-WVA) as
its chairman today and agreed on an
early inquiry into conduct of Ameri-
can Military Government in Occupied
A subcommittee to be named later
will go to Europe as part of the inves-
tigation. Committee agents already
are making a preliminary inquiry.
Committee members disclosed that
secret testimony was received recent-
ly from an army officer who declared
that conditions in American-occupied
Germany "are worse than the Ger-
man occupation of France."
It was indicated that allegations re-
ceived about the military government
deal principally with fraternization
by high army officers with Germans.
W orld Assured
Of US Stability
In Peace Aims
Secretary Silent Over
By The Associated Press
PARIS, Sept. 26 - Secretary of
State Byrnes declared tonight that
President Truman's recent American
foreign policy statement gives "assur-
ance to the world" of the stability in
the policy to be followed by the Unit-
The President's statement backed
Byrnes' policies and ousted Henry
Wallace as Secretary of Commerce. It
climaxed a chain of events which be-
gan Sept. 12 when Wallace made a
speech in New York's Madison Square
Garden attacking the present Ameri-
Byrnes, in his first formal pro-
nouncement since the original Wal-
lace speech, told a news conference:
"The statement of the President
that the American foreign policy is
whole-heartedly supported by him
and that he contemplates no change
in that policy is most reassuring.
"The fact is that that policy is a
bi-partisan policy, and because it is
supported by Democrats and Repub-
licans, it is assurance to the world
that regardless of which party is in
power, the United States is going to
stand by the policy he (the President)
has followed and is following today.
"The President indicated that when
there is any change in that policy it
would only be changed after discus-
sion and conference among the Presi-
dent, the Secretary of State and con-
Byrnes also indicated-although he
did not say it in so many words-
that a dangerous corner had been
turned in international affairs. His
manner at the news conference said
more than he did.
The question was asked of Byrnes
whether his optimism was in some
way related with Stalin's declaration
and others which have been made re-
cently. He said he had nothing to
say on this point.
For Ohio State
Tickets for the Ohio State game,
Nov. 23 in Columbus will be placed
on sale for the last time this morn-
Because of unexpected demand for
game tickets. according to Lynne
Ford, chairman of the Varsity Com-
mittee, it was necessary to sell more
than the quota allotted for the first
and second days of sales and the
number to be sold today is not as
large as expected.
There are more than a sufficient
number of train tickets left, however,
Arrangements have been made for
the student special train to run di-
rect from Ann Arbor to a switch ad-
jacent to the Ohio State Stadium.
Students making the trip will be
able to buy breakfast, served by a lo-
cal caterer, at the train depot be-
tween 6 a.m. and train time at 7 a.m.
and luncheon and dinner will be
served in a diner on the train.
Blanks for tickets for the game
will be passed out before the booth
opens at 8:30 a.m. in a booth outside
Rm. 1, Univerity Hall. Students who
do not have blanks will not be able to
buy game tickets.
The train will leave Columbus for
the return trip at 7:30 p.m. on the
evening of the game.
Prices on the tickets are $3.50 for
the game and $7.60 for the round-

Still Not Settl ed
PITTSBURGH, Sept. 26-(I)-This
industrial city's crippling power
strike was still on tonight, its effects
sharpened by a shutdown of the
,treet railway system, despite dis-
solution of an antigastrike injunc-
tion which had been a major obstacle
in the path of settlement.
Initial efforts to find a mutual un-
derstanding in the power dispute
failed late this afternoon when a
two and one half hour conference
between officials of the Duquesne
Light Company and an independent
union of employes ended with no
agreement. A union spokesman said,
however, the conference would be
resumed, probably tomorrow.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 26 - Presi-

greement with some of his own party
eaders, declared emphatically today
rice ceilings. on meat should not be
evised or scrapped.
With the meat shortage producing
rave new complications, the Presi-
lent issued a statement saying:
1. The shortage is not due to price
control but to an "extraordinarily
large slaughter" in July and August
when price controls were temporar-
2. There will be a "greater quan-
tity and better quality of meat in
the near future."
3. Present livestock ceilings are
'fair and equitable."
Will Not Call Congress
In addition to this statement, is-
sued at his news conference, the
President told reporters he saw no-
need for a special session of Congress
to remedy the situation. He also ex-
pressed firm hope that any growers
withholding cattle and hogs will now
release them for market.
Even as the President was taking
his stand, Mayor Kelly of Chicago
told reporters he favored a 60-day
suspension of meat price controlas.

of Massachusetts urged such a sus-

In addition, the party's executive

ties ways and means of increasing the
meat supply available to the Ameri-
Truman's Stand Opposed
Then he was asked whether he dis-
agrees with Hannegan on the ques-
tion. He replied that the facts were in
his statement and if Hannegan dif-
fers with them, then of course they
do not agree. Hannegan as Postmas-
ter-General is a member of the Cabi-
The President's statement reported
prospects "for temporary relief in
the next few months" although "there
may be periods in various parts of the
country when meat is scarce." In
additional comment Mr. Truman ex-
pressed stronger assurances that sup-
plies will improve and urged that
people be patient.
