'U' Proposes
To PayCity
For Services
Offer of $97,600
Would Aid Facilities
A sore spot of long standing in Uni-
versity-city relations concerning use
of local facilities and public services
appeared to be considerably healed
with the announcement yesterday .
that the University has offered the
city $97,600 toward the expansion of
certain of those services.
Under the proposed agreement the
University will continue to pay the
same water and sewage disposal rates
as are charged taxpayers in the city.
The $97,600 will be placed in a fund
for expansion of water or sewage dis-
posal facilities. The offer was made,
according to the University state-
ment, to ensure adequate services to
the University, "having in mind the
present building program." The
statement specifically mentioned 20
buildings and additions.
Police Salary Plan
Also in the University's offer, ap-
proved by the Regents, was an agree-
ment to provide for the salaries of
seven policemen, a figure to equal the
average salaries of local policemen,
including department heads.
The University also is offering to
give the city $7,500 upon condition
that the arrangement of providing
"free beds" at University Hospital to
city employees be discontinued. The
bed arrangement was originally made
in exchange for a city gift of a site
once occupied by the Homeopathic
Additional Grants
An additional $5,000 a year will be
paid the city by the University for
each new building built beyond the
group mentioned in the University
statement, the sum being based on an
average of four or five buildings a
Mayor William E. Brown, Jr., in-
formed of the announcement, esti-
mated that the income to the city, as
computed on a 10-year basis, which
would result from the University's of-
fer will total about $55,000 annually.,
He explained that he based his esti-
mate on a total of approximately
$547,000 for a 10-year period, this
total to consist of the $97,600 for the,
water-sewage expansion, $200,000 for
the police protection, and an addi-
tional $250,000 from the University;
for services necessitated by further,
building construction.,
The Regents also authorized con-
tinuation of negotiation on "solution'
of the fire department problem of the
city as it relates to the University."
The mayor said that he expects fur-
ther negotiation on such points will
bring his income estimate up to a
figure between $75,000 and $100,000'

Record-Breaking Crowds




The best pass defense is a fast-charging line and no one knew it better than Indiana did yesterday.
Michigan's backfield couldn't stop the Hoosiers' pas sing attack but the Wolverine forward wall spent a busy
afternoon messing it up as- Michigan smashed its way to a 21-0 triumph over Indiana at Michigan Stadium.
Crowd Breaks Record
A record-breaking opening day throng of 74,600 tur ned out to see the 1946 Wolverine debut under a hot
summer sun, and it was treated to a sparkling exhibition of defensive play by Coach Fritz Crisler's horde of
classy linemen. Bo McMillin's team tossed three passers at the Wolverines and all of them spent much of their
time trying to shake off persistent Maize and Blue shadows.

Seven times the Mchigan linemen, headed by Lennie Ford, Bob Derleth,
Bruce Hilkene and Dick Rifenburg roared through to spill would-be Hoosier
tossers for an aggregate loss of 62 yards. In the fourth period Rifenburg
nailed Bob Young for a 13-yard loss before the Hoosier halfback had even
turned around to look for his receiver.
But Bennie Raimondi, Bob Cowan, Pete Pihos and Young managed to
throw a bad scare into the Wolverine supporters. Time and again they
lofted aerials into the Wolverines' almost pitifully inadequate pass de-
fense. Thirteen of their 29 attempts''--

Danube Navigation uestion
Post poned by UN Delegates
LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., Sept. 28-(I)-The United Nations Economic
.and Social Council postponed a decision today on the controversial issue of
Danubian freedom of navigation after Russia had implied that she had no
immediate intention of opening the Danube to free navigation between the
Soviet and American occupation zones.
In closing a two-day debate, Chairman Andrija Stampar, of Yugoslavia,
announced that a decision would be postponed until next week. This action

Previously the Soviet served notice
on the U. S. that military measures in
the Danubian area were of primary
importance and asserted that changes
of measures taken by Soviet military

Charging that the U. S. proposal

United States was attempting to avoid
council consideration of these claims.
At the same time he replied to a

Additional Programs
Are Being Arranged
Dorothy Maynor, soprano, will ap-
pear Oct. 28 in the first of several
special concerts planned by the Uni-
versity Musical Society because of
this year's heavy student enrollment.
Charles A. Sink, president of the
society, explained yesterday that
many students were unable to pur-
chase tickets- for the regular Choral
Union Series, pointing out that be-
cause of the large number of married
veterans many students were buying
two tickets instead of one. Therefore,
the special concerts were arranged.
Tickets for Miss Maynor's per-
formance will go on sale at the socie-
ty's offices in Burton Memorial
Tower as soon as they are received
.from the printers. Announcement of
the date of sale will appear in The

Argentina May Seek
Admission to Fund
WASHINGTON, Sept. 28-(P)-
The World Bank and Fund today
dropped all efforts to get Russian re-
presentation at their conference here,
but a cautious unofficial "feeler"
from Argentina was reported.
Argentina, a late-comer into the
United Nations, is one of the few
South American countries which has
not asked entry into the Bank and

cials said she made an "exploratory"
move last spring.

a half dozen more were dropped by

Indiana Has Bad Day
But it just wasn't an Indiana af-

smothered the Hoosier running at-
tack, lapsing only long enough to
take a quick breath here and there.
In all, the invaders managed to roll
for 112 yards through the Michigan
line but lost another 81 for a net'
gain of 31 yards for the day.

Sizzling Rays
Subdue Thirsty
Old Sol's sizzling rays which sent
yesterday's mercury soaring to 90 de-
gree heights at game time, apparent-
ly acted as a subduing influence on
the near-capacity opening-day crowd
which thronged the stadium.
For the first time in the memory
of the police department, no inebri-
ates were picked up at the game, ac-
cording to C. M. Enkemann, acting
police chief. The crowd was charac-
terized as "very orderly" by Enke-
It was a hot and thirsty crowd,
however. Soft drink stands were
obliged to hang up the 'Sold Out'
sign, at half time. Untold quantities
of peanuts and hot dogs were con-
sumed as well.
In spite of the heat and crowds,
the University-staffed first-aid build-
ing on the northwest corner of the
grounds had little business. Medics
in charge reported only several minor
cases throughout the day.
The usual parking lot pirates and
souvenir hucksters weren't deterred
by the heat, however. Back in their
old stands, they were hawking their
wares as vigorously as ever..
Thanks to a recently reorganized
traffic plan, little difficulty was ex-
perienced by the police department
in getting fans' cars in and out of
the stadium area. One child suffered
minor bruises in the only traffic in-
jury reported to police.
French Legislature Votes

Italian Border
Trieste Is Established
As International Zone
PARIS, Sept. 28-(I)-The peace
conference approved today the
"French Line" as a frontier between
Italy and Yugoslavia and the estab-
lishment of an internationalized zone
of Trieste, while Yugoslavia defiantly
announced she would not sign the
Italian treaty nor withdraw troops
from the disputed area.
Over strenuous Soviet-Slav objec-
tions the delegates then, by an 11 to
8, vote, retaliated by inserting into
the treaty an American proposal
which would bar Yugoslavia from
collecting any of the $1,300,000,000
reparations she is claiming from Italy
if she persists in her stand. The vote
was not a two-thirds majority, how-

clared on Yugoslavia's threat: "No
one is trembling in his boots." He
predicted outside the conference that

sideration" would eventually sign the
Soviet Delegate Andrei Vishinsky
charged that the Anrican article
barring Yugoslavia from privileges of
the treaty "violated" the Big Four
agreement in the Council of Foreign
Ministers and had "hidden aims" be-
hind it. His statement indicated Rus-
sia would oppose the article bothin
the conference plenary session and
in the foreign ministers' council.
Vice-Premier Edvard Kardelj of
Yugoslavia asserted the article was a
"dictate" and represents "a threat
and an attempt to intimidate Yugo-
slavia. Yugoslavia has shown by its
four years of fighting that it will not
yield to intimidation.'
