Russian Use of
Veto Brings
British Attack
Big Five Opposes
(charter Changes
By The Associated Press
LAKE SUCCESS, N. Y., Nov. 16-
Great Britain today leveled a strong
attack against Russia's use of the
veto as preparations went ahead for
a meeting of the Big Five Powers
called to try for a private agreement
on modification of the much-debated
voting power .
In assailing the Soviet taptics, the
British stood firm with the other
four major powers against changing
the charter as demanded by small
nations but welcomed a chance to
get the issue temporarily out of the
hands of the General Assembly.
'Everybody Out of Step'
Philip Noel-Baker, British delegate,
said Russia's position reminded him
of the mother who said "everybody
is out of step but my Johnny."
The British delegate spoke before
the United Nations Assembly's 51-
nation political committee after
France moved to suspend the debate
pending the Big Five meeting. Brit-
ish sources reiterated that the ses-
sion would be held on Monday in
New York regardless of action on the
French plan and declared assur-
ances to attend had been received
from all principals, including Soviet
Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov.
Oppose Charter Revision
In advancing his plan to close the
debate, French delegate Alexandre
Parodi lined up with the other big
powers in opposing any revision of
the chrter but called for improve-
ment of the procedure of voting in
the Security Council.
Now all of the five major powers
except Russia have taken the position
that the council itself should limit
the use of the veto to rare and ex-
ceptional cases.

Government Freezes,
Rations U.S. Soft Coal
Krug Calls Order 'Essential Precaution'
As Lewis Ignores Request to Reconsider
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 16-A drastic government order froze the nation's
meager soft coal supplies and placed them under rationing today as John
L. Lewis stonily stood pat on the challenge which'threatens a strike at mid-
night Wednesday.
Going far beyond the freeze order issued at the time of the bituminous
strike last spring, the government seized control not only of future coal pro-
duction but also of all stocks now in transit and in dealers' yards. It will be
doled out only to utilities, railroads, ships, hospital, laundries, food plants

Charges "Unwillingness"
"Issuance of these orders is an es-
sential precaution in view of the un-
willingness of the president of the
United Mine Workers to accede with
the President's request to reconsid-
er the government's proposal look-
ing toward a settlement of the coal
controversy," Secretary of the Inter-

for the worst, Lewis ignored the ad-
ministration's second appeal for a
60-day truce and its pointed warning
that he has no legal ground for ter-
minating the miners present contract.

other covered all coal in shipment on

including tidewater shipments not
affected by earlier freeze orders. The
third covered all coal in retail yards.

Veterans' allotment checks were
trickling into Ann Arbor at the end
of this week although an unofficial

of the checks had been received..

Administration had said that all of

Of the 62,000 applications for sub-
sistence from veterans enrolled in
Michigan educational institutions, all
but 5,000 have been sent on to Cleve-
land. Screening for various data
which might effect subsistence pay-
ments is given as the reason why
these applications are still in Detroit.
Campbell said that he expects that
all applications will be in Cleveland
by next Wednesday.
Although a poll of post offices at
the East and West Quads, the Law

that only about 1 per cent of, the

WASHINGTON, Nov. 16-(IP)-The
War Assets Administration, striking
angrily at what it called a "doubly
despicable" practice, announced to-
night it has uncovered cases in which
state and local officials misused sur-
plus purchase priorities for private
The agency reported some prosecu-
tions- already under way by the Jus-
tice Department and promised more.
It said investigation of such cases is
being given priority.
No names were given, bht WAA
said violations were "especially prev-
alent in certain Southern and Mid-
western states." Questioned by re-
porters, officials declined to specify
which states.
Some of the complaints have been
found groundless, the agency added,
and 38 cases still are under investi-
gation. In two instances, indictments
have been returned.

Campbell stated that more than 10
per cent of the checks had been
mailed from Cleveland. He hadno
statement as to how long it would be
until all the checks were mailed.
Campbell pointed out that the
Cleveland finance office, which han-
dles allotment checks for veterans of
Michigan, Ohio and Kentucky, is now
working under the peak load caused
by a flood of fall enrollments.
Of the 421 reports made to the
campus Veterans Guidance Center
on Nov. 4 and 5 that veterans had not
yet received either their checks or
notification of allotment authoriza-
tion, 76 per cent of the claims have
been investigated and applications
sent to Cleveland.
CIO Says Unity
Vital in Face of
.Big Business'
-(R')-The CIO acting on an assump-

war" on it, was making a determined
effort today to get its own house in
Existence of a division between
the CIO's "right wing" and "left
wing" was recognized more bluntly
than ever before by the CIO leader-
ship as they prepared for the CIO
convention which opens Monday.
President Philip Murray, regard-
ed as virtually certain to accept re-
election, acknowledged today in a
brief news conference the existence
of a special CIO committee which is
working on harmony.
Other leaders have disclosed that
it has six members, equally divided
between the right and left wings.
It was learned that Murray told
the executive board yesterday in em-
phatic terms that CIO unions will
meet strong resistance this winter in
their fight for a second post-war
round of wage increases.
Others present at the meeting said
Murray referred specifically to re-
cent utterances of Alfred P. Sloan,
board chairman of General Motors
and that Murray interpreted such
utterances as a "declaration of war.

Death Toll Reaches Eight
In Deer Hunting Season
DETROIT, Nov. 16 - (P) - The
death list from Michigan's first big
postwar deer hunting season reached
eight Saturday as four more fatalities
and numerous injuries were reported.
Gunfire claimed three more lives,
bringing that total to four, three have
been killed in auto accidents and one
hunter has died of a heart attack.

Scoring a pair of touchdowns in
both the first and fourth quarters,
Michigan kept alive its hopes for a
Big Nine Conference grid title yes-
terday by soundly trouncing the Wis-
consin Badgers, 28-6, before a crowd
of 63,415 rain-soaked spectators.
Marching for touchdowns the first
two times they got the ball, the Wol-
verines left little doubt as to their
superiority and scored almost at will.
Only once did the Badgers-including
eight former ,Michigan griddei's-
threaten, and only twice did they car-
ry the ball into Maize and Blue ter-
Chappuis Again Stars
The victory may prove costly for
Michigan, however, since three right
halfbacks, Bump Elliott, Paul White,
and Ralph Chubb, were hurt in the
final period. Just how serious their
injuries are could not be determined
Bob Chappius again sparked the
Maize and Blue victory with his run-
ning and passing, plunging for 118
yards and pitching three aerials for
another 43 to bring his total rushing
mark to 770 yards. This is just 92
short of Otto Graham's 1942 rec-
ord of 862.
Bob Mann, speedy end, snared two
passes for the first two Michigan
scores while Dan Dworsky and Len
Ford each marked up a touchdown.
Automatic. Jim Brieske converted
after each six-pointer to keep intact
his Conference percentage of 15 con-
versions in as many attempts.
The Badgers received the kick-off
and ran it back to their own 22. Two
plays gained them a yard, and Tex
Cox punted to Chappuis who re-
turned it to the Michigan 45. It took
the Wolverines just nine plays to
reach pay dirt.
Mann Scores on Pass
Bump Elliott hit left tackle for
seven yards. Bob Weise lugged it for
five more and a first down on the
Badgers' 43. Chappuis went around
end for five. He then flipped a short
?ass to Elmer Madar on the Wiscon-
sin 34. Weise again made it a first
down on a one yard buck.
Bump Elliott circled end for an-
other five, aided by a nice block by
Howie Yerges. Yerges took Chappuis'
