OPA Permits
Price Boost
Rollback to June
Prices Abandoned
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Oct. 4-A 15 per
cent price increase on meat meals in
the nation's public eating places was
authorized by OPA today,' effective
next Thursday.
The increase came after OPA gave
ap its attempt to roll back restaurant
meat offerings to the levels of last
June 30.
The OPA said the 15 per cent boost
'can be applied by all restaurants
throughout the nation to their June
30, 1946, freeze ceilings, which gen-
erally, represent their April 4-10,
1943, prices."
OPA said exact details of the
changes it is making in the res-
taurant regulations will be issued on
On other sectors of the food front
there were these developments:
1. The Agriculture Department
turned down a request from flour
millers to abandon price controls on
wheat flour, farina and semolina.
The department said these products
"must be considered in short supply."
2. In an effort to increase pork
supplies for the fall and winter of
1947-48, the Agriculture Department
urged families to produce a 1947
spring pig crop of 58,000,000 head.
This would be 5,676,000 more than
the 1946 spring crop.
3. The nation's meat shortage was
discussed at a meeting between
President Truman and his cabinet.

Aold reporters later that government
moves to remedy the shortage are
under study, but he would not say
what they might be.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich, Oct. 4-
(P)-Sen. Homer Ferguson today
blamed government regimentation
for the meat shortage and termed

Speaking before the Michigan Res-
taurant and Caterers Association
here, Michigan's junior senator from
Detroit declared:
"Regimentation is responsible for
the condition under which, in a land
like ours, a person can't buy meat.. .
Bureaucracy is looking over the
builder's and meat packer's shoulders,
telling them when to stop and start,
when to wait and when to hurry.
"I suggest it may be well for the
government to step aside for a while
in the meat and housing situation.
The people then may eat some meat

want regimentation. They find they

Present Policy
On Admissions
Not Permanent
The present restricted admissions
policy of the University is only tem-
porary, Provost James P. Adams de-
clares in the first issue of "The
Michigan Alumnus," scheduled to
appear' next week.
Answering the challenge that the
University is becoming a "provincial
institution," Provost Adams states
that if the University had pursued
its normal course in the admission of
new students, the total enrollment
Athis fall would have been at least
22,000 students.
Temporizing Necessary
Pointing out that a survey of the
resources of the University revealed
that it could not accommodate an
enrollment of this size at this time.
Provost Adams asserted that "there
was no satisfactory solution" to the
admissions problem which would not
involve temporary measures of some
Long Range Policy Unchanged
This fall a strict limitation on the
admission of new students from out-
side of the state to the undergrad-

for the first time, Provost Adams em-
phasizes that this means no change
in terms of long-run policy regarding
admissions, and that in the future
the University "will continue to
maintain the admissions policy

for its national and international
position as an institution of higher

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Oct. 4 - The
United States and Britain split wide
asunder on the Palestine issue to-
night, with President Truman de-
manding immediate admittance of
"substantial" numbers of Jews to
the Holy Land and Britain sharply
"regretting" his move.
In London, a spokesman for Prime
Minister Attlee, upon whom the
President served his demand, said
it would prejudice a settlement of
Palestine's future.
Moreover, the British were obvi-
ously angered because, they said,
Mr. Truman had not complied with
a British request to hold up his
move pending a study by British
At No. 10 Downing Street-of-
ficial residence of Prime Minister
Attlee-a spokesman said the Tru-
man message was received there last
midnight and that Attlee immediate-
ly cabled Mr. Truman requesting
that it be delayed until Attlee and
Foreign Secrtary Bevin could study
"This request was not complied
with," the spokesman told newsmen
in sharp tones.
Outright rejection of the re-
quest for immediate action to
throw open the gates of Palestine
was implied in a British Foreign
Office spokesman's statement that
no decision could be made on it
until the "whole political future"
of Palestine was settled.-
An Arab leader in London said it
would take 500,000 American troops
to enforce the Truman plan.
Mr. Truman's statement, as cabled
to Attlee and made public here this
morning, expressed "deep regret"
that British efforts to reach an over-
all' Arab-Jewish settlement had been
adjourned until Dec. 16.
"I believe and urge," he said, "that

Documents Often Discarded
"Every spring, people unwittingly
throw out historical documents of
tremendous value," he declared. Most
people do not realize the value of old
documents and relics stored away in
nooks and corners, he pointed out.
Rep. Schuch, president of the Sagi-
naw Valley Historical Society urged
University students to turn in items
they think may have value to
the University's historical collection
which he termed, "one of the out-
standing collections of its kind."
Urges Central Collection
Director of the 72nd Annual Meet-
ing of the Michigan Historical So-
ciety, to be held in Saginaw, Rep.
Schuch asserted that "the State as
an entity has the least in the way
of historical collections."
He said "it would be a good thing"
to merge all historical collections in
the State with a central collection in
"This would ease the burden for
scholars who use historical data, now

Palestine problem and that it should
begin at once."
He promised assistance to the im-
migration movement, presumably
meaning the United States would
furnish ships and supplies. Further-
more, he pledged United States sup-
port for any future "workable solu-
tion" for Jews and Arabs in Pales-
tine. He declared that if such a solu-
tion could be found he would ask
Congress for "economic assistance"
for developing the country.
Italians To Pay
$225 Milions
In Reparations
Commission Tie Vote
Bars Albanian Claim
PARIS, Oct. 5-(IP)-Greece and
Yugoslavia were voted $100,000,000
each and Ethiopia was granted $25,-~
000,000 in Italian war reparations
early today at a meeting of a Euro-
pean Peace Conference Commission
whichtdefeated a proposal to pay
reparations also to Albania.
The proposal to pay Italian repara-
tions to Soviet-supported Albania
was defeated by a tie vote.
Soviets Lose Battle
Russia officially reserved the right
to fight the reparations question
again when the Italian peace treaty
comes before the four-power For-
eign Ministers Council for final ap-
proval. The Soviets lost a 10-hour
battle to obtain for Abania repara-
tions equal to those given Ethiopia,
and to have Yugoslavia paid twice as
much as Greece.
The final vote on the reparations
issue was 11 to 4, setting Italy's total
reparations at $225,000,000, in addi-
tion to the $100,000,000 awarded to
Russia. Five nations abstained from
voting. The Italian Economic Com-
mission's long session ended at 3
a.m. after having been sitting since 4
p.m., with a 90-minute dinner recess.
Russia Gives Notice
Russia's notice that she would re-
open the discussion at the foreign
ministers' meeting was entered in the
commission's minutes after the dele-
gates had deadlocked in a 10-10 vote
on the question of paying reparations
to Albania.
France, China, India and Ethiopia
joined the six Slav states in voting
favorably to Albania's obtaining
some outright reparations payments
from Italy. The proposal advanced
by the British disallowed Albania any
reparations beyond Italian assets now
in Albanian territory.
Donors Needed
By Blood Bank
An appeal for both professional
and volunteer donors was issued yes-
terday by the University Blood Bank
due to a shortage of the more uncom-
mon blood types.
The shortage lies particlarly in
supplies of blood types O, A, B, and
Rh Negative, officials explained.
Since most people do not know their
blood type, the Bank has invited all
persons, especially men between the
ages of 21 and 50 to come in for typ-
ing. The hospital has a large list of
professional donors for the more
common types of blood.
The Blood Bank is open at the hos-
pital every day from 8 a.m. to 4:30
p.m. except Saturday, when the hours
are from 8 to 11:30 a.m. Blood type
tests take only ten minutes, officials

HAWKEYE HALFBACKS - Bob Sullivan and Enlin Tunnell, fast-
moving Iowa ballcarriers, will share the tailback assignment in Coach
Eddie Anderson's plans for this afternoon. Tunnel is regarded as one
of the outstanding backfield newcomers in the Conference and will
probably get the starting call, but Sullivan, who has compiled a 5.0
rushing average in the Hawks' first two games, is sure to see a lot
of action.

ess will be shown every Sunday
evening in the Michigan Union.
Robert Morgan, secretary of the

ball authority, will bring his or-

commentary of the game to the
students at 7.30 p.m., on the sec-
ond Sunday after each game.

dicted, fans will again be forced to
doff coats in a repetition of last
week's scorcher.
The baseball-like weather is ex-
pected to result in a field day for soft
drink vendors. Officials have prom-
ised, however, that there will be no
repeat performance of last week's
tie-in sales practices.
A traffic force of 85, including
Ann Arbor police, sheriff's deputies
and State patrolmen, will be on hand
to handle the influx of cars. Lt. R. J.
Gainsley, Ann Arbor police traffic
expert, expects little trouble in han-
dling the crowd, which he has esti-
mated will number 60,000.
Last week's opening day throng
cleared the city in less than an hour,
thanks to the recently reorganized
traffic plan, Lt. Gaisley said. State
highway officials, who toured the
stadium area in a light airplane, re-
ported only two slight traffic snarls
outside the city just prior to game
time, he added.

Hawks Seek
Their Third
Win of Season
M Line Gives
Iowa Weight Edge
Pre-war dopesters who had the
Western Conference football race all
figured out a couple of weeks ago
will get a look at one of their chief
tormenters today when Iowa's un-
beaten giant-killers invade Michigan
to clash with the Wolverines at 2
p.m. in Michigan Stadium before an
estimated 60,000 fans.
Few experts expected the Hawkeyes
to escape unscathed in their Big Nine
opener with Purdue last week but
the men from the corn country upset
the dope bucket in the best Iowa
manner to plaster a 16-0 defeat on
the Boilermakers and vault into a
top contender's spot in the Confer-
There'll be even more incentive
for the underdog Hawkeyes today.
Not since 1924 have they tasted vic-
tory over Michigan. There was a
scoreless tie in 1929 but it did lit-
tle more than whet the Iowans'
appetite. And it was a Maize and
Blue eleven that knocked a Hawk-
eye title threat in1939 sky high
All reports from the corn country
indicate that Coach Eddie Anderson
has come up with another hard-run-
ning group of hustlers. In their two
triumphs to date the Iowans have
rolled up a big 261.5-yard average on
the ground while holding their op-
ponents to a net yardage of 199 in
the two outings for a game average
of 99.5.
Leading the Hawkeyes' offensive-
minded squad is a Negro freshman,
Em Tunnell. Operating from his
tailback spot Tunnell has lugged
the leather for 149 yards in 23 car-
ries and a neat 6.4 average. Jim
Walker, outstanding Hawkeye tac-
kle in 1939-41, has called Tunnell,
"the best halfback I ever saw."
To complement the fleet left half-
back, the Iowans have a smashing
fullback, Dick Hoerner. Doc Ander-
son's bucking back is no -newcomer to
Michigan fans who'll recall Hoerner
in 1942 splitting the Michigan de-
fense down the middle when he took
a second-half kickoff and sprinted
85 yards for a touchdown. Hoerner
has averaged nearly five yards in 22
carries this fall.

Thwart Tie-In
Sales At Game
In order to facilitate the reporting
of possible violations of proper sales
policies at the stadium today, ven-
dors at all stands will1wear numbered
Andrew Baker, general manager of
the Board in Control of Intercol-

he doubted that there will be any
repetition of irregular pracices which
occurred at last week's game. Ven-
dors who were found guilty of un-
scrupulous sales practices last week
have been dismissed from further
service at the stadium.
Concessionaire supervisors will be

on duty to see that sales are conduct-
ed properly, Baker said. However, if
violations do occur, they may be re-
