Stutdent's Letter...
To the Editor:
The first game of the Michigan
schedule has been played, and the
upperclassmen are still not sitting in
the choice seats. But strangely
enough, this is not the subject of my
During the intense heat of the
football game, many of the fans
wanted to enjoy a "coke" or some
other non-initoxicating beverage.
But most of us learned that if we
wanted "pop" it was also neces-
sary for us to purchase a very un-
appetizing looking frankfurter at
the exhorbitant rate of fifteen
cents.. Another favorite racket of
the shyster concessionaires working
at the University, of Michigan Sta-
dium was to sell the unsuspecting
student a warm soda, and a min-
ute later charge him or her ten
cents for ice to cool the soda.
What is this University coming to
when it allows such illegal practices
to take place on their premises? Not
only is it illegal from the profes-
sional standpoint, but look at it from
the moral point of view. If we stu-
dents are to go out into the world
and benefit society, then we- here at
this institution of higher education
would surely learn better business
practices than those used by the petty
crooks operating in our football sta-
There is a great possibility that the
University officials have no inkling
of these practices, as this was the
first game of the season. But, if these
unscrupulous acts are tried again,
then I urge the University officials,
to throw (bodily or otherwise) the
owners and workers of these conces-
sions off of the university grounds,
and at the same time bring suit
against thei for this "tie-in" sale
racket they are perpetuating on our

:rier' sReply...
Dear Mr. Tisch :
The copy of your letter addressed to
Michigan Daily,
in reference to the unfortunate sit-
uation at the Michigan Stadium last
Saturday in connection with refresh-
ments sold by the Concessionaires
was received and carefully read.
Information had previously come to
me about the so-called "tie-in" sales
and an investigation was made im-
mediately. Unfortunately, several
sales had already been made before
the Concession Supervisors were in-
formed of this practice.
It is the desire of the Board in
Control of Intercollegiate Athletics
to render the best possible service
to patrons of football games, and
certainly the practice which exist-
ed at the Indiana game will not be
tolerated. T h e Concessionaires
have been informed that if there is
their contract will be cancelled im-
I appreciate the spirit in which
your letter was written and the in-
terest you evidence in maintaining
proper standards and practices in
the sale of refreshments and mer-
chandise at the Michigan Stadium.

steps immediately to stop these
practices or contract will have to

Meat Price Ceilings

To Be Retained

Controls Over
Some Foods
Are Removed
Livestock Supplies
Are Increasing
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Sept. 30-Chances
for any quick removal of meat price
ceilings dwindled further tonight as
Secretary of Agriculture Anderson
ruled officially that it still is scarce.
The ruling retains meat on Octo-
ber's list of price-controlled foods.
Ceilings Removed
However, Anderson's second
monthly list of scarce agricultural
commodities, issued under the new
price control act, removed ceilings
from the following:
Oat cereals, canned corn, all can-
ned fruits, fruit juices and fruit nec-
tars, fresh and frozen salmon, wet
and pressed sugar beet pulp, rum,
cordials and liqueurs.
Short Supply List
These were left off the agriculture
department's shortsupply list. The
law forbids OPA to apply ceilings
to any food not appearing there.
There were these other develop-
ments too, on prices and foods:
1. Chairman Roy L. Thompson of
the decontrol board predicted in a
speech the end of most price regula-
tions within six months but said no
amount of political or other pressure
will influence the board.
2. The decontrol chief in a second
address said the board did not fore-
see the present meat shortage when
it restored ceilings because it "ex-
pected better cooperation" and
"didn't expect to see human nature
react as it did."
3. The Army turned to Argentina
for meat.
4. Livestock supplies at the major
American markets showed a consid-
erable improvement, with the cattle
run the heaviest of the month at
The total meat supply will be short
for the next 12 months, Thompson
said, but there are indications it will
become available again slowly. He
suggested that some of the present
shortage results from stocking up by
holders of deep freeze lockers, and
by public eating places, just before
ceilings went back on.
Argentine Meat
The Army said it is negotiating
with packers who have South Ameri-
can plants for a part of the Argen-
tine meat supply not already con-
tracted to Great Britain. That coun-
try recently made a deal for all but
17 per cent of the Argentine export-
able surplus for the next two years.
The Army also has been consider-
ing purchases in Australia and Ca-
nada for troops in the Pacific. Be-
cause of U.S. quarantine regulations,
any meat from Argentina would
have to be used overseas.

Packers Are
Not Hoard in
LANSING, Sept. 30-()-The sup-
ply of meat in Michigan packing
houses and cold storage plants is less
than 25 per cent of normal, and there
is "no evidence of meat hoarding" by
the state's packing industry, the
State Department of Agriculture re-
ported to Governor Kelly today.
Miles A. Nelson, chief of the de-
partment's Bureau of Marketing and
enforcement, conducted the survey at
belly's request after Rep. Casper P.
Kenny, Flint Democrat, charged the
packing industry was "deliberately
holding up the production of meat

products in order to boost prices."


Students Turn
In Only 300
Grid Tickets
Only 300 underclassmen, out of an
estimated 2,000 with seats in upper-
class sections, escaped the threat of
Student Legislature action yesterday
by turning in their football tickets.
"I think students just don't real-
ize how accurate our check is," Ray
Davis, Student Legislature presi-
dent, said last night. Pointing out
that most of the tickets turned in
yesterday were for section 28,
Davis said that a check of ticket
holders in section 24 has already
Underclassmen who do not turn in
tickets obtained through fraud or
error today, Davis warned, will prob-
ably have their tickets for the re-
maining games revoked as the first
step in the Legislature's disciplinary
action. Additional punishments may
include fines, disqualification from
extra-curricular activities, suspension
or expulsion from the University.
Here's how the check works.
When the football tickets were first
handed out, stubs from the ticket
books were stapled to the registra-
tion coupons stating the number
of semesters students were sup-
posed to have spent at the Univer-
sity. These stubs are now being
sorted out by sections and the cou-
pons attached to them are being
checked with the University files.
Exchanges of tickets which do not
pass through the machinery set up by
the Legislature will not vindicate the
underclassmen who held fraudulent
tickets. All exchanges must be made
at the booths set up for this purpose.
Students with 60 credit hours or
more with seats adjacent to seats
held by underclassmen in sections
24 to 28 may present the tickets,
with proof of upperclass standing,
in exchange for special receipts en-
titling them to adjacent seats in
underclass sections. These receipts
should be obtained today.
Exchange booths will be open from
8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. today in the
lobby of University Hall and the
North Lounge of the Union. This will
be the last day on which students
with less than 60 hours may turn in
tickets without being liable to punish-

Tribunal Finds Nazis Guilty;
Sentences To Be Pronounced

Enrolled at 'U'


Final registration figures announ-
ced yesterday by Registrar Ira M.
Smith revealed an increased enroll-
ment of 26.6 per cent over the pre-
vious record of last spring.
This fall's enrollment of 18,5131
comes unusually close to the esti-
mated 18,625 predicted by University
officials last spring.
That this fall's enrollment broke
all previous records had already been
announced on the basis of prelimi-
nary figures. It was revealed yester-
day that an increase of 62.4 per cent
has been realized over last fall's
total of 11,397.
The literary college, biggest unit
on the campus in volume of students,
has 7,220 students enrolled, up 23
per cent from last spring and 48 per
cent higher than last fall.
The engineering college shows the
biggest percentage of increase over
last spring with 3,690 students, only
26 of whom are women. This is 59
percent above last spring's enroll-
ment and 128 per cent higher than
last fall.
Other units showing increase of
more than 40 percent over last spring
are the College of Pharmacy and the
law school. Pharmacy enrollment is
145, an increase of 49 per cent, while
the law school has 955 in attendance,
18 of whom are women. This repre-
sents a gain of 41 per cent.
Veterans in the University total
11,098 (10,790 men and 308,women).
Eighty per cent of the male students
on campus are veterans.
There are only 5,081 women on
campus, and 13,432 men.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 1 - (P)
- The Navy patrol p 1 a n e Tur-
culent Turtle roared across the Cali-
fornia coast early today and headed
eastward across the continent after
flying further non-stop than any
previous aircraft.
The navy said at Seattle that the
plane, carrying four men and a
kangaroo, had already broken the
world's long distance non-stop flight

Goering, seemed reconciled to the
probability that they would be sen-
tenced to death. The executions are
expected to be carried out Oct. 16
unless the allied control council
grants appeals.
Grim, silent, 21 Nazis sat in the
prisoner's dock of the heavily guard-
ed courtroom as the eight-man
court read the greater part of the
scathing 100,000 word judgment
which denounced them as criminals.
Today's session lasted almost eight
hours, adjourning at 6:40 p.m. At
that time 177 pages of the judgment

had been read, leaving about 70 to be
disposed of tomorrow before indi-
vidual sentences are pronounced.
The wording of the judgment indi-
cated that all 22 were in some meas-
ure guilty as charged. All defend-
ants are accused of at least two
counts of the four-count bill of in-
dictment, and some are accused of
all four counts.
. The charges are a common plan to
wage aggressive war, crimes against
the peace of the world, war crimes
and crimes against humanity.
No declarations of criminality were
returned against four Nazi organiza-
tions-the general staff, the high
command, the Reich cabinet and Hit-
ler's brown-shirted stormtroopers.
But "certain groups" of the fear-
some Gestapo, the elite 'guard (SS),
the SD (a department which operat-
ed a spy system) and the leadership
corps were convicted.
The tribunal emphasized, however,
that members of the organizations
against which no declarations of
criminality were returned could be
tried as individuals.

Sea Power
To Support
Allied Policy
State Department
Clear sStatement
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Sept. 30 - The
Navy took the "good will" label off
American sea forces in the Mediter-
ranean today and frankly called them
instruments of American policy in
that strategic area where Russia and
the west collide.
Unusual Declaration
Secretary Forrestal, in an unusual
policy declaration, which was cleared
in advance with the State Depart
ment, set up the following as main
reasons for keeping U. S. sea power
in evidence in the Mediterranean and
eastern Atlantic:
"First, to support the Allied occu-
pation forces and the Allied military
government in the discharge of their
responsibilities in the occupied areas
of Europe.
"Second, to protect U. S. interests
and to support U. S. policies in the
Not Finished
The Navy chief at the same time
made it clear that those assignments
are a long way from finished.
This was accomplished by his an-
nouncement that when the great air-
craft carrier Franklin D. Roosevelt
finishes the Mediterranean cpuse
that started out as a good will tour
and training exercise, she will be fol-
lowed from time to time by a succes-
sion of other flat-tops.
Policy Purposes
Actually the American naval, oper-
ations in the Mediterranean in past
months have been serving the policy
purposes no matter what their ,label.
A case in point was the visit of
the super-battleship Missouri to Tur-
key for the announced purpose of
taking home the body of a long-dead
The gesture of employing a war-
ship for such a purpose was not it-
self an unusual honor for the coun-
try or the memory of the man. But
some lesser warship-say a cruiser-
historically has been quite accept-
able for such a task And the Jour-
ney coincided with a previous Russo-
Turkish crisis over Soviet demands
