Attlee Drops
Shinwell as
Fuel Minister
Shakeup Involves
Thirty Positions
By The Associated Press
LONDON, Oct. 7-Prime Minis
ter Attlee tonight demoted hi
much-criticized fuel ministe
Emanuel Shinwell, and droppe
five other senior members from
the government.
The London Star called th
large-scale shake-up a sligh
'movement to the right," but gov
erment informants denied ther
was any ideological significanc
in the shift.
The official announcement from
No. 10 Downing Street, officia
residence of the Prime Minister
said the five ministers who were
leaving the government were Joh
Wilmot, Minister of Supply; F. J
Bellenger, Secretary of State fo
War; J. B. Hynd, Minister of Pen
sions; Lord Inman, Lord Privy
Seal, and Joseph Westwood, Sec-
retary of State for Scotland.
a0 Posts Involved
The shakeup, involving 30 posts
within the government and bring-
ing in several young laborites a
junior executives to infuse "new
blood" into the direction of af-
fairs at a time of economic crisis
did not touoh health minister
Aneurin Bevin, a leader of the La
bor Party's left wing, nor Food
Minister John Strachey, another
left winger.
Sir Stafford Cripps, named to a
new post as Economics Minister
last week as the first step in the
reorganization, remained the only
one of the government's "big
four" affected by the changed
lineup. Foreign Secretary Ernest
Bevin, Chancellor of the Exche-
quer Hugh Dalton and Deputy
Prime Minister Herbert Morrison
all retained their posts.
Twelve Dropped
Counting the registration of Ar-
thur Greenwood as minister with-
out porfolio last week, the shake-
up has involved the dropping of
six senior and six junior ministers.
Shinwell, who bore the brunt of
criticism for last winter's fuel
crisis, was dropped to the posi-
tion of Secretary of State for War,
a non-cabinet post. His demotion
fwas expected to bring a protest
from left-wing elements, particu-
larly from Arthur Homner, Com-
munist general secretary of the
National Union of Mine Workers.

With some local restaurants observing meatless Tuesday, and the
rest, including the University-run dining halls, ready to begin with
Thursday's "no poultry, no eggs" day, the food drive got off to a strong
start in Ann Arbor yesterday.
The conservation policy will go into effect tomorrow at the Uni-
versity dining rooms and cafeterias as the request was made too late
to permit a change in Tuesday's menus, according to a University
news release.
The Interfraternity Council will consider the request at their next

Heated Exchanges
In the General Assembly's 57-

heated exchanges with Premier
Paul-Henri Spaak of Belgium and
Hector McNeil, British Minister
of State.
The Yugoslav refused to obey
repeated attempts by Chairman
Joseph Bech (Luxembourg) calling
him to order.
In the Assembly's 57-nation So-

of Argentina protested rulings by
Chairman Oscar Lange of Poland

Dr. P. C. Chang of China joined
him with the exclamation: "It is

When the noise had died down,
the net result was:
1. The political committee had
completed its long and sustained
debate on the Balkans question
and was almost ready to get down
to actual work on a batch of res-
olutions in that case.
2. Russia had lost the first

Farm. Experts
Ask Congress
For Subsidies
Long-Range Plan
To Modify Parity
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Oct. 7-- Con-
gress in the future should grant
food subsidies or take other steps
to assure low-income families of a
good diet, the Agriculture Depart-
ment said today in urging a long-
range farm program upon Con-
The program also called for
"modernization" of the farm par-
ity formula, which is used by the
government in preventing prices
of farm commodities from falling
below a certain level.
Looking beyond present world
shortages to a return of price-en-
dangering surpluses, the Depart-
ment called for a "floor" under
food consumption, using food
stamps or other means. Food
stamps were formerly issued to
needy persons enabling them to
buy food at cut rates, with the
government making up the differ-t
ence. '
Congressional Action
Congress, the Department saide
should "take steps to keep con-
sumption from falling."
The suggestions were laid be-r
fore a joint session of House andr
Senate agriculture committeesI
studying national farm policy for5
the future.
The administration program, if
accepted by Congress, would raise
parity prices for livestock and
dairy products and lower it on
grains and cotton.
"In substance, it would keep the
average of parity prices about
where it is now," the Department
Parity Price Raise
The proposed formula would
raise the parity price for beef cat-
tle from $12.80 to $16 a hundred
weight, if the cost of farm labor iss
included in the computation. Milk1
would rise from $3.79 to $4.22 ai
hundredweight, wholesale andC
soybeans from $2.28 to $2.40 aF
bushel. On the other hand, cotton
parity would drop from 29.39r
cents a pound to 26.35 cents,
wheat from $2.10 a bushel to $1.79,
corn from $1.52 to $1.42, and oats7
from $.946 to $.815 a bushel.

was presented by Carl C. Farring-r

NLRB Decision Overrules Denham,
Breaking Negotiation Bottleneck
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Oct. 7-Top AFL and CIO leaders are not re-
quired to sign non-Communist affidavits, the National Labor Rela-
tions Board ruled today.
The 4 to 1 decision overrode the Board's general counsel, Robert
N. Denham, and broke a big logjam of labor cases.
Bowing to the decision, Denham told reporters: "I expect to fol-
low it." He said he felt he was right but that he was in a position of
a lower court, bound to abide by the decision of a higher tribunal.
Benham had interpreted the Taft-Hartley Act to mean that all
unions affiliated with AFL and CIO would be barred from taking
labor relations cases before the,
NLRB unless all leaders of the
two federations swore they were New Security
not Communists.
But the NLRB majority de-
dared that such a policy wouldP rogram
play into the hands of "dissen- Be Undertaken
sion-seeking Communists."

Allen received his A.B. degree
from the University in 1940, and

Flying Cross as a member of the
Royal Canadian Air Force. In
April of 1944, he was reported
missing in action over Belgium.

father, Mr. M. Allen ,of Windsor,
Ontario, established a $500 fund
in his son's name, $100 of which
was to be awarded each year for
five years to that member of the

the Board in Control considered
the most outstanding.
Clayton Dickey, '47, became the
first to receive the Larry Allen

and activities of the National Stu-

NSA rally will be held at 8:30 p.m.
tomorrow at Rackham Lecture
Wlliam Welsh, national presi-
dent of the association, will open
the rally with a plea for ratifica-
tion of the new NSA constitu-
tion. Written early this fall by stu-
dent delegates to a convention
held at the University of Wiscon-
NSA relationships with the In-
ternational Union of Students, a
topic which provoked heated dis-
cussion at the convention, will be
outlined by Ralph A. Dungan,
vice-president in charge of Na-
tional Affairs, from St. Joseph's
College, Philadelphia.
Harvey Weisberg, president of
the Student Legislature, will clar-
ify NSA policies regarding racial
discrimination, in education, and
academic freedom.
Chairman of the rally will be
Erich A. Walter, director of the
Office of Student Affairs.
The three speakers appeared
yesterday at a luncheon spon-
sored by the Economic Club of De-

As general counsel with final
authority under the law in griev-

opinion and thereby thrown out
many AFL and CIO cases in the

This all means that many un-
ions which have wanted to quali-
fy to use the NLRB for airing
grievances, choosing collective
bargaining representatives, etc.,
can now do so.
Ignored Denham
The CIO's top officials simply
had ignored Denham's require-
ment and John L. Lewis, head of
the mine workers union and an
AFL vice president, had blocked
AFL compliance in a bitter feud
with his AFL colleagues.
The scrap within the AFL
brought on by Lewis' refusal to
sign had grown to the point that
major AFL unions were threat-
ening to pull out of the AFL fold
in order to use NLRB's procedures.
Daniel J. Tobin, head of the team-
sters, told reporters today at San
Francisco the NLRB decision re-
moved any threat his union would
withdraw from the AFL.

Calls for Dismissal
Of 'Risk'_Employes
WASHINGTON, Oct. 7-(1P)-
The State Department announced
today a security program designed
to prevent state secrets from fall-
ing into the hands of foreign spies.
It calls for the dismissal of any
officer or employe ruled to be a
"security risk."
In the "risk" category, the De-
part ment listed: Communists,
Nazis, or Fascists; persons who,
believe in those ideologies; per-
sons who habitually associate with
members of those or similar or-
ganizations, and also persons with
"basic weakness of character or
lack of judgment."
Middle Ground
Hamilton Robinson, the Db*-
partment's Security Chief, de-
scribed the new policy as an ef-
fort to find a reasonable middle
ground between "witch hunting
and "harboring subversive ele-
Robinson told newsmen the De-
partment intends to get rid of all
persons considered security risks
or prevent their employment in
the first place, but at the same
time it will safeguard the civil
rights of all employes. Any ac-
cused employe has the right of a
hearing before the Department's
new three-man security board.
Thirteen Dismissed
To date, he said, the Depart-
ment has dismissed 13 persons as
security risks. Of those, three were
permtited after hearings to "re-
sign voluntarily" rather than have
the mark of dismissal against
their records.
Many other employes have re-
signed after partial investigations,
he said. During this period ap-
proximately 50 job applicants
have been turned down or placed
in what he called "pending status"
on security grounds.
Choral Union
Series Begins
KarinBranzell Will
Give Concert Tonight
Karin Branzell, Swedish con-
tralto of the Metropolitan Opera
Company, will open the 69th an-
nual Choral Union series at 8:30
p.m. today in Hill Auditorium.
Born in Stockholm, Miss- Bran-
zell was heard singing in church
by the late Crown Princess Mar-
garet of Sweden, who offered to
pay for her musical education. Her
career began at the Royal Opera
in Stockholm, where she sang for
several years.
Soon after Miss Branzell came
to the Metropolitan, where she
made her debut as Fricka in "Die
Walkuere." She also made ap-
pearances at leading musical cen-
ters of Europe. During the sum-
mer of 1946, she returned to Eu-
rope for the first time since the
war to appear in recitals in
Sweden and Denmark.
In 1945, Miss Branzell left the
opera for recitals, and as part of
a tour this year, will make her
