"Not much electricity is utilized
in this instance, but it indicates
an apparent unwillingness to co-

"Most stores have complied with
the dimout, but the few mer-

Although he refused to mention

Economic Agreement
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK, Dec. 2--Britain
and the United States signed to-
night a bi-lateral pact for the eco-
nomic merger of their zones of oc-
cupation in Germany designed to'
make the territory self-sustain-
ing within three years.
Prolonged 1Negotiations
The action came at the end of
prolonged negotiations in Ger-
many, Washington and here. The
agreement was signed by Secre-
tary of State James F. Byrnes
and British Foreign Secretary
Ernest Bevim.
The details were kept secret
pending presentation of the terms
to the British House of Commons

was announced by Michael McDer-
mott, State Department spokes-
man. It followed two weeks of
conferences between Lt. Gen. Lu-
Iu Cla American occupation
Robinson of Britain, and their ad-
visors.
Although details of the plan
were aia"ig, it ws undstoo' d o
that the mcrger would be carried
through on a 50-50 financing basis
anid would .nvolve a total expendi-
ture' by Britain and the United
States of approximately $1,000,-
000,000 over the three-year period.
Both Britain and the United
States-thu far without success-
sia and France to join in the eco-
nomic merger of Germany, con-
tending that it would reduce sub-
stantially the cost of occupation
and speed the economic recovery of
Europe.-
Relief Foods
Under the setup prior to the
merger, the United States levy, ex-
clusive of maintaining troops,
amounted to approximately $200,-
000,000 annually. This money went
chiefly for relief foods in Ger-
many.
Meanwhle, the four-power For-
sign Ministers Council set a $150,-
000,000 ceiling tonight-on the to-
tal amounlt of war reparations
which Grecce and Yugoslavia will
each receive from Italy and Bul-
garia.

LONDON, Dec. 2-(IP)--A source
high in the Labor Government
declared tonight that Britain was
not formulating plans "for any
sort of a military pact with Amer-

the other to any definite action

The informant said that any ne-
gotiations now in progress be-
tween the two nations involved
only the integration of armaments,

Dr. Ewan Clague, Commissioner

the University Bureau of Appoint-

A nationally-known authority

Another outlet for the contribu-
tions to the annual Christmas
Drive is the "Fun Fund," used to
purchase individual Christmas
gifts for the children, for parties,
and in general to provide fun for
the thousands of boys and girls
who visit University Hospital each
year. Funds from the drive bring
Santa Claus to the youngsters,
complete with Christmas party,
gifts and games which help to
some extent to "make up" to a
little boy or girl for having to
spend Christmas away from home.
With the 1946 goal set at $3,000,
Don W..Bowne, chairman of the
drive, said that "fraternities, sor-
orities, students and town~speople
have always given the Drive such
liberal support that we feel cer-
tain this year will be no excep-
tion."

To Get Tickets
The more than a majority of

holders who failed to take advan-
tage of the basketball ticket ra-
tioning plan will now have to
"take a chance" on seeing any of
the home games, according to
Andrew S. Baker, athletic ticket
manager.
Decrying the common tendency
on the part of students to "pro-
crastinate," Baker announced yes-
terday that basketball fans will
have to wait in line until 7 p.m.
before each game, after which all
those who do not have guaranteed
admissions will be admitted as
long as the seats hold out, 6,744

Krug's presence before the com-
mittee was compelled by subpoena,
a virtually unprecedented action
against a Cabinet member. The
subpoena was issued after he
failed to appear last week in re-
sponse to a request. Aides ex-
plained that he was too busy with
the coal strike then and today he
told the committee that he "glad-
ly" presenited the facts.
The bulk of the gas moved will
be consumed in the Ohio region,
he told the committee, emphasiz-
ing that this would serve to relieve
the fuel pressure in the areas far-
ther east.
Krug said the government 'ex-
