Clothing Drive
Is Scheduled
To Start Dec. 10
A clothing drive, to collect all
available garments and shoes to send
to the needy in Europe this winter,
will be sponsored by the University
Famine Committee Dec. 10 to 12,
Chairman Seymour Goldstein an-
nounced yesterday.
The clothing, which will be col-
lected at student residences, will be
shipped to Europe through the facili-
ties of the "Save the Children Feder-
ation," an organization, which, ac-
cording to Goldstein, has been active
since the end of the war in expediting
the delivery of donated clothing to
the people of Europe who face a se-
vere winter with a scanty and
dwindling supply of clothing.
Headquarters for the clothing drive
will be at Lane Hall. After clothing
has been collected in residences, the
Famine Committee will collect the
garments in bulk from each house.
The Canterbury Club has already
pledged the $180 necessary to pur-
chase one heifer for the "Heifers
for Europe Drive" which the Famine
committee will also sponsor.

judges' Call
Liquor Card
Case Club Court
Issues 'Decision'
"The liquor identification card
requirement of the State of X is con-
stitutional" ruled the Supreme Court
of that Stare at 5:35 p.m. yester-
day after hearing the arguments of
"Maxwell's" attorneys.
The hypot!ietical case, tried by the
Law School case club, evolved from
interest stirred up by several stories
in The Daily concerning the consti-
tutionality of the Michigan Liquor
Purchase Identification Caird law.
No "Fundamental Rights" Involved
The judges of the court, Paul G.
Kauper, professor of constitutional
law, and Howard Jacobs and Ken-
neth Liles, Law School seniors, ruled
that since no fundamental rights
were involved, the law was consti-
tutional under the provisions of the
14th Amendment.
"We do not have involved a fun-
damental right. On the contrary, we
have legislation to \prevent the minor
from drinking and thereby protecting
the sellers of alcoholic liquors. . .
We find in this law no violation of
the Due Process clause of the 14th
Amendment. . . Also we find no
breach of the Equal Protection pro-
vision of this 'aw. . . . Therefore, the
Court finds tde law constitutional and
sustains the judgement of the lower
court on the defendent 'Maxwell',"
the Court's chief justice stated.
Defendent Protests
Wilbur Davidson and Carl Fishcer,
attorneys for the defendent, had ap-
pealed the lower court's decision on
the basis that the law classified per-
sons between ages 21 and 25, inclu-
sive, solely upon their appearance.
Thomas Dougherty and Charles
Rendlen, attorneys for the State of
X, maintained that the law was with-
ing reason since it was designed to
protect the irinor.

Special To The Daily
COLUMBU3, 0., Nov. 22-With
one eye on the outcome of the Illi-
nois-Northwestern clash at Evanston
and the other on Ohio State, Michi-
gan's rejuvenated Wolverines will
wind up their 1946 season in their an-
nual battle with the Buckeyes at 2
p.m. today in spacious Ohio Stadium.
There'll be some 78,000 fans on
hand to watch the finale fireworks
but the Wolverine-Buckeye show will
have to share the stage with the
Illini-Wildcats scrap. The Illinois
lads need only a win over Lynn Wal-

A triumph over Paul Bixler's Buck-
eyes is a must for Michigan if the
Wolverines are to retain their slim
chance of copping the Big N'ine
crown. Should Illinois lose and Fritz
Crisler's men win tomorrow, Michigan
will be in. Ohio State is already out
of the race, but stands to make things{

Molotov Blasts
Great .Britain
On Troop Census
U.S. Willing To Give
Complete Information
LAKE SUCCESS, N. Y., Nov. 22
-(iP)-Soviet Foreign Minister V. M.
Molotov indirectly accused Great
Britain today of attempts to scut-
tle a proposed United Nations troop
inventory and rejected a British pro-
posal to combine the troop census
with discussion of Russian's four-
point arms limitation plan.
He renewed his attack on the Unit-
ed States and Britain for maintain-
ing troops in friendly countries, call-
ing for an immediate troop inventory
to clear the atmosphere and relieve
world anxiety.,
In climaxing an hour-long speech,
Molotov asked the,54-nation Political
and Security Committee of the United
Nations Assembly to give unanimous
approval to his own resolution which
calls on all UN members to give fig-
ures on all their troops in both enemy
and non-enemy states.
This prompted Sen. Tom Connally
(Dem., Tex.), Americanrdelegate on
the committee, to declare to news-
men after the meeting that "the
United States has no hesitancy in re-
vealing complete information on its
armed forces wherever they may be
In pressing for immediate action
on the troop census, Molotov said that;
Russia, France and China already
had made aeclarations on their
troops stationed abroad, but added
that the committee had heard noth-
ing "on this .subject from either the
United Kingdom or the United
Mass Sedition
Case Dismissed
Chief Justice Bolitha J. Laws, of
Federal District Court, today dis-
missed the sensational 1944 mass
sedition case, but the Justice De-
partment announced an appeal from
the decision.
Laws said that to try the case
again-it has lain dormant for two
years-"would be a, travesty on jus-
However, a justice department
spokesman said that Congress passed
the law against seditious acts "in the
belief that it would protect the gov-
erment from that sort of thing and
the government is entitled to know
if it does."

Couve de Murville, French delegate
to the Big Four foreign ministers
meeting here, declared in a speech for
delivery to the French Chamberhof
Commerce anniversary dinner that
the German problem "which is most
urgent is the political settlement."
He said he was certain that France
and 'the United States have the "com-
mon objectives" of keeping Germany
permanently disarmed but that
France disapproves entirely with the
American view that the first ap-
proach to current German issues is
through economic settlement.
The United States, he said, is pri-
marily concerned wtih issues of oc-
cupation costs.
Herve Alpnand, director general of
the French Ministry of Foreign Af-
fairs, declared in his prepared speech
that because 3f lack' of adequate coal
supplies from the Ruhr, France has
had to turn to the United States
for shipment of more than one mil-
lion tons of coal per month and "that
is an uneconomic and risky solution,
in view of the uncertainty to which
American production is subject."

WSSF Drive
Nets $3,200'
In Two Days
Although total receipts of the two
day World Student Service Fund
drive were only $3,200, those who
gave, contributed generously, ac-
cording to Barbara Stauffer, chair-
man of the drive.
"It was heartening to see how
many students gave at least a dollar,"
Miss Stauffer stated. "This means
that our message showing the great
need of foreig nstudents was under-
stood by many."
Although the total does not in-
clude the pledges of several student
groups, Miss Stauffer said that it
leaves much to be desired since "the
greatest amount we could have giv-
en would not have been enough to
alleviate the suffering of students in
Europe and Asia."
"All those students who aided in
any phase of the drive and particu-
larly those who stood in the cold yes-
terday to receive contributions have
shown theiir belief in the bond which
should exist between all students of
the world," Miss Stauffer stated.
Because some pledged sums have
not yet been turned in, contributions
will be accepted at Lane Hall until
Wednesday night.

Withdrawal of U.S. Troops
From China Thought Unlikely

Prof. Frank L. Huntley, of the Eng-
lish department asserted in an ad-
dress yesterday at the Hillel Founda-
tion, that the question of withdraw-
ing our armed forces from China
cannot be easily resolved because of
the diversity of American interests
which they are protecting there.
He pointed out that China is a dis-
unified country in which the revolu-
tion that started in 1911 is still be-
ing thrashed out. She should be al-

On the other hand, Prof. Huntley
observed that our role in Japan is
quite different. "The greatest re-
sponsibility that the United States
has ever faced abroad is the reedu-
cation of the Japanese nation from
war to peace," he declared. This
problem is complicated by the fact
that the Japanese revolutionary
movement is being bitterly fought by
