Meal Prices
OPA Boosts Meat
And Food Prices
WASHINGTON, Sept. 27-('P)-
OPA conceded defeat today in its
battle to roll back prices of meat
meals in restaurants to June 30 le-
vels and at the same time took ceil-
ings off a ong list of canned and
frozen fruits and vegetables.
Responding to bitter protests from
hotel and restaurant men, many of
whom had threatened to close their
eating places if the meat rules were
kept in force, the price agency an-
nounced that the prices of menu
meat items will be boosted next
Uniform Increases
An OPA statement said the
amount of the increase will be "uni-
form for the entire country." It will
be fixed at a conference here next
week with spokesmen of the Na-
tional Restaurant Association.
In line with President Truman's
stand-pat policy on the meat short-
.age, his party executive committee's
proposal to take up the matter with
the Decontrol Board was quietly
dropped today but Democratic con-
gressmen made fresh demands for
federal action.
And the president's forecast that
the normal fall run of grass-fed cat-
tle to market should soon improve
the supply found western stockmen
disagreeing with him, although they
were not unanimous.
Army Demands Reduced
One bright spot for housewives
was a War Department order reduc-
ing by about one-fifth the amount
of meat the Army demanded earlier
this week from federally-inspected,
packers. But the Quartermaster Gen-
eral, Maj. Gen. T. B. Larkin, an-
nounced that the Army is .consider-
ig purchases from some non-fed-
erally-inspected plants - state-in-
spected packers from which it now
buys nothing.
Press Deadline
PARIS, Sept. 27-.()-The Euro-
pean Peace Conference completed all
but 10 clauses of the Italian peace
treaty today as it drove hard for ad-
journment by the Oct. 15 deadline.
The 10 clauses, however, included
three of a political nature on the big
problem of Trieste, and there were in-
dications that this issue might have
to be shelved indefinitely. The other
seven are economic clauses upon
which agreement must be reached be-
fore the treaty can be sent to the
plenary session for final approval.
At the end of this morning's meet-
ing of the subcommission for the
statute to govern the international-
ized area of Trieste Soviet Delegate
Nikolai Novikov proposed that it ad-

70,000 Fans Will Witness Veteran
Michigan's Eleven's Debut in Stadium
Daily Sports Editor
Geared for its toughest grid opener since 1938, Michigan's veteran-
loaded football machine will clash with Indiana's Western Conference de-
fending champions before upwards of 70,000 fans at 2 p.m. today on the
Michigan Stadium turf.
There'll be more than just another Conference game at stake, though.
The Hoosiers, smarting from a startling upset last Saturday at the hands of
Cincinnati; will attempt to get back on the 1945 winning track while the
Wolverines, a little tired of losing to Indiana (it's happened two years run-
ning), have no intention of dropping their first grid opener since 1937.
The invaders will feature little Ben Raimondi, whose deadly passing was
a big factor in derailing the 1945 Wolverine express to the Conference title,
but his chief receivers, flankmen Bob Ravensburg and Ted Kluszewski, are no
longer around. Nonetheless Coach Fritz Crisler has stressed pass defense in
drills this week and there is little: *° * *

New Class Attendance Rules
For Literary College Explained

New regulations regarding class at-
tendance in the literary college which
went into effect with the beginning1
of the fall semester, were explained in
a statement to The Daily yesterday by
Dean Erich A. Walter of the liter-
ary college.
The new rulings, which were
adopted at a joint student-faculty
meeting last June, were the result
of student demand to abolish the
attendance rules which had been in
effect for more than 20 years.
Described by Dean Hayward Kenis-
ton of the literary college as "a more
realistic approach to the problem,"
the new rulings read.: -
"1. Students are expected to at-
tend class regularly.
"2. When the instructor considers
the number of absences excessive,'
that is, when a student'shabsence
from a course endangers his satis-
factory academic progress, the in-
structor should send a written reportl
on the case to the Administrative
Board for action."

The text of Dean Walter's state-
ment regarding the new rulings fol-
"It is obvious from the regula-
tions the faculty adopted that it is
willing to give our students an in-
creased measure of freedom. Free-
dom, as we all have good reason to
know, means the assumption of re-
"In making the student himself re-
sponsible for attending classes and in
removing the regulations which stu-
dents may have thought coerced them
into attendance, the student is now
faced with the responsibility of get-
ting all he can from class attendance
without being reminded by notes
from the Dean's office that his at-
tendance has been irregular.
"This fall, with our unprecedented
increase, in enrollment, many classes
will depend more heavily than they
have in the past on lectures and class
discussions and will rely only on mid-
semester and final examinations for
the final grade in the course.
'It is obvious that students who fail
to attend such classes regularly will
face the final examination without
adequate preparation.
'Is it emphasizing the obvious too
much to remind students that the
main reason for attending lectures
with regularity is that when such
lectures are presented by an authority
who prepares the presentation of his
material with care, the student de-
rives something from the lecturer
which he can never receive merely.
from reading the material in books?
"Since these regulations may seem
particularly liberal to our beginning
freshmen, they should be reminded
that a satisfactory five-week report
cannot be expected if a student has
not handed in his work with regular-
ity. The time to make a good begin-
ning and to make sure of at least a

Receives SRA
The appointment of Chaplain John
G. Craig as Program Director of the
Student Religious Association was an-
nounced yesterday by Dr. Franklin
H. Littell, Director.
Major Craig will also act as adviser
to "Insight" and will work with Wal-
ter Fariss, coordinator of veterans af.;
fairs for the University.
The new Program Director is on
terminal leave after 39 months in
service, of which 17 months were
spent in Italy. His longest assignment
was with the famous 442nd battalion
(Japanese American). He was re-
cently chaplain at Headquarters
Group in Mtousa, Italy.
Major Craig has worked with young
people in civilian life as well as in
uniform. Before entering the army he
was assistant in charge of young
adult and youth work at the Church
in the Gardens, Forest Hill, N. Y. and
later worked with the Chicago area

Major Craig received his B.A. de-
gree from Central Y.M.C.A. College,
Chicago and his Bachelor of Divinity
degree from Union Theological Semi-
nary, New York City.

Teaming with the little signal--
caller as the Hoosiers' top threat will
be a hard-hitting fullback whose big
number 35 may be a prominent fea-
ture of the Stadium landscape, Pete
Pihos. The 205-pound fullback nar-
rowly missed All-American last year
after being switched from end to the
bucking-back post.
May Be Impaired
But Pihos' efficiency may be seri-
ously hampered by the loss of tailback
George Taliaferro whose break-away
running spread opposing lines for the
Hoosier fullback in 1945. Taliaferro
is now in the army. His place will be
taken by Jim Dewar back from the
1943 team. Rounding out the invad-
ers' backfield will be Mel Groomes,
speedy wingback and another veter-
an from the 1945 outfit.
Except for the ends, the Indianans
will field the same forward wall
which moved to the Conference title
last year. There'll be John Golds-
berry and Russ Deal at the tackles,
Howard Brown and Joe Sowinski at
the guards and John Cannady at cen-

top centers in the country.

Lawton, Crisler Lead
Record Mass Meeting


Launching the 1946 Michigan foot-
ball season into one of its most prom-
ising years, an estimated 12,000 stu-
dents in a torchlight procession last
night surged down State Street from
the Michigan Union to Ferry Field,
traditional spot for Michigan pep ral-
Master-of-ceremonies J. Fred Law-
ton, a Michigan alumnus and co-
writer of the "Varsity" read to the
crowd a tribute to the late Fielding
H. Yost after which the 115 piece
Michigan band played Yost's favorite
song, the school's alma mater,
"Yellow and Blue."
Though refusing to make any pre-
dictions, H. O. (Fritz) Crisler, head
of the Michigan Wolverines, declared
that in 25 years of Michigan pep ral-
lies he'd never seen one so large or
showing so much enthusiasm.
"In spite of no lights, no public ad-
dress system, no nothing," Lawton,
with rolled-up trousers and shirt off,
had the crowd roaring with laughter
at his stories, had them cheering and
singing Michigan's traditional yells
and songs.
At the end of the program he led
them in a chorus of the "Varsity"
which was written exactly 35 years
ago by Prof. Earl V.Moore and him-
self and read the lyrics of his newest
football song, "Ann Arbor."
A victory bonfire, lighted by Vice-
President of the "M" Club Bill Court-
right, reached a height of 30 feet.
Plans for a still larger rally for the
Illinois Homecoming game are being
drawn up at present by Bruce Rogatz,
of the Varsity Committe~e of the Stu-
dent Legislature.
Jaminson To Aid
Charity Drive
Community Chest Has
$126,588 Objective
Prof. Charles L. Jamison, of the
business administration school, has
been appointed by President Alexan-
der G. Ruthven to represent the Uni-
versity in the 1947 Community Chest
Campaign, which will be held from
Oct. 21 to 31.
Of the $126,588 goal, $118,758 will
be used in Red Feather health and
welfare services while $6,850 will be
sent to the National USO. Because of
11,013 veterans on campus who have
benefitted from the work of the USO
while in service, it has been suggested
that the University seek to achieve
the USO fund of $6,850 as its goal.
The 1947 campaign goal is $13,276
short of last year's, Eugene Power,
president of the Community Fund
Board, said, adding that there is an
increase of $13,374 in local commun-
ity needs.
