Propose UN
Police Force
For Palestine
Reaction of U.S.
By The Associated Press
United Nations Assembly was
urged today to meet the new Pal-
estine crisis by taking over ad-
ministration of the Holy Land
from Britain and creating a small-
nation military force to protect
its inhabitants from "aggression."
The proposed force would be
afmed and financed by the Big
Five powers, including the United
States and Soviet Russia. Neither
has yet spoken its policy on Pal-
estine but the U.S. expected to
give its declaration tomorrow fore-
First Formal Action
The proposal submitted by
Guatemala, was the first formal
action in the Assembly's 57-nation
Palestine committee following the
Arab-reported movement of seven-
nation Arab League forces toward
the Palestine borders.
It was coupled with a bitter at-
tack on the exiled Mufti of Jeru-
salem, who joined in yesterday's
decision by the Arab League coun-
cil meeting in Lebanon to forge
a ring of steel about Palestine.
Policy Statement
The U.S. delegation announced
that Herschel V. Johnson, a vet-
eran of the Security Council bouts
with Russia, would give this coun-
try's long delayed policy state-
ment on the Palestine issue to-
morrow. Russia remained silent as
to when she would speak.
Later in the day Britain pre-
sented the Palestine committee
with a resolution calling upon UN
members to accept a,"fair share"
of European displaced persons as
immigrants to relieve their plight
and to help solve the Palestine
Guatemala's proposed "interna-
tional military police corps" to as-
sure order during the interim
would be made up of contingents
from countries outside the Big
Five "in proportion to the total
number of the armed forces of
each country."
Arabs Claim
Army Ready
Near Palestine
BEIRUT, Lebanon, Oct. 10-()
-Arab sources said tonight the
armed forces of the Arab world,
which is unofficially estimated to
be able to muster 200,000 to 250,-
000 regulars, were concentrating
on the Palestine frontiers to cor-
don off "terrorist organizations
and Zionist forces."
Other official quarters here and
in Palestine declared, however,
they had been unable to detect
any unusual troop movements.
Troop Maneuvers
While troop maneuvers were re-
ported in progress to implement a
decision of the Arab League of
seven nations, the League council
went back into session tonight
to plan the next "military pre-

U.S. Food Saving Plan Is
Met with Mixed Feelings
Food Prices Demonstrate No Appreciable
Reduction Throughout American Markets
By The Associated Press
The nation's meatless, poultryless and eggless days drew more sup-
port and criticism Friday as the grocery bill continued to strain the
family budget.
Food prices themselves showed no substantial declines at the
end of the day's trading, some of them rising slightly. December wheat
at Chicago reached a new high for the season, at one time selling
for $2.941/2. On the cash market, a carload of No. 3 red wheat sold for
$2.99 a bushel, highest cash price in Chicago since 1920.

Of Denham
Asks Truman Recall
Of NLRB Counsel
-A resolution calling upon Presi-

Denham as general counsel of the
National Labor Relations Board
was introduced at the AFL con-
vention today by the International
Typographical Union, headed by
Woodruff Randolph.
The resolution also:

Denounced Senator Ball (Rep.,
Minn.) as "a hateful enemy of or-
ganized labor."
"Condemned" the American
Newspaper Publishers' Association
for its current legal action against
the ITU under the Taft-Hartley
The resolution, to be acted up-
on next week by the delegates, is
an outgrowth of the ANPA's suit
filed in Cincinnati this week
charging the Typographical Union
with unfair labor practices in con-
nection with the ITU's position on
future contracts with publishers.
The resolution charged Denham,
"without benefit of proper proce-
dure or legal hearing, expressed
the opinion for the benefit of the
press that the ITU policy (on La-
bor Relations) did not comply
with the Taft-Hartley Law."
Senator Ball, it continued, as-
sailed ITU policy as "thinly veiled
closed shop camouflage"; while
the ANPA was accused of attempt-
ing "to add its coercion and pres-
sure to the already vicious and
ugly pattern of pressure accumu-
lated to influence regional direc-
tors of the NLRB and the board
The ITU singled out Schroyer,
joint committee counsel, for "vol-
unteering" the same opinion as
that expressed by Denham to a
subsequent meeting of printing
employers at French Lick, Ind.
Convention business was sus-
pended briefly to pay solemn trib-

Season Opens for
Hallowe'en Tricks
The Ann Arbor kids kicked off
to the Ann Arbor cops this week
in the opening play of their peren-

At the end of the first quarter,
the score for the kids read: seven

For the cops: Plenty of irate

"Seems like Hallowe'en is not

Groups Meet
On Academic
Freedom Issue
Plans for the forthcoming
Michigan Conference on Academic
Freedom, to be held here, Oct. 18,
were adopted at a meeting of vari-
ous student groups yesterday in
the Union.
A proposed agenda for the con-
ference was suggested which will
set up a state-wide academic free-
dom organization.
Professor ' Preston Slosson, of*
the history department, will ad-
dress the plenary session, and
Harvey Weisberg, President of the
Student Legislature will present
the National Student Association's
Student Bill of Rights for the as-
cembly's consideration.
The group will then be broken
down into panels to discuss for-
mation of the academic freedom
organization, various methods of
coping with violations of campus
infringements on freedom and the
N.S.A. Bill of Rights.
At the final session, resolutions
and panel reports will be adopted,
and a constitution and officers
voted on.

Also proposed was the setting up
of local academic freedom organi-
zations and a monthly bulletin to
be published by the central group.

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 10-(')
-The Nation brought home its

sorrow and pride.,
As the funeral ship Honda

who fell in the Pacific war reached,
San Francisco, the United States;
paid its highest military salute,

Salute Fired
While the Presidio, Sixth Army
headquarters, fired the 21-gun sa-
lute, Secretary of the Navy John
L. Sullivan told the hushed audi-
ence gathered on the Marina
Green :
"Today, in sorrow and yet with
pride, America repatriates the
mortal remains of those who fell
in the hours and months of the
'Destiny of Man'
"Wherever and whenever they
fell they died to safeguard the
destiny of man.
"Today they impose upon us, the
living, the sacred trust of their
final hours, their last thoughts,
their common dream of the safety
and welfare of America, and an
enduring peace for the world."

Band Puts 72,000 Minutes
Into Eleven-Minute Program

Running the Pitt panther
through a meat grinder sounds
like a pretty tough job, but the
smooth way the University march-
ing band will do it this afternoon
at the stadium, there won't be a
single bone crushed.
The really "crushing" task came
during the days preceding the 11/2
minutes of halftime formations
and playing which the band will
provide this afternoon, under the
direction of Prof. William D. Re-
velli. Some 72,000 man-minutes
were consumed in acquiring that
"finished look."

U.S., Britain
Return Looted
Gold to Italy
WASHINGTON, Oct. 10-(;P)-
A store of gold worth $28,000,000,
captured by the U. S. Fifth Army
Corps from Germans who had
stolen it from the Bank of Italy,
was made available tonight to the
Italian government.
, The gold cache was found in
May of 1945 at Fortezza, Italy,
where the retreating Germans had
hidden it.
Great Britain and the United
States agreed tonight to turn it
over to the non-Communist Ital-
ian government, providing it with
additional assets needed to con-
tinue purchases of wheat and fuel
during the winter.
The Italian government can
either use this gold to furnish ad-
ditional backing for its currency
or follow Britain's example and
sell it to the United States gov-
ernment for $35 an ounce.
Michael McDermott, State De-
partment press officer, told a news
conference the gold transfer
should help Italy in its battle to
control inflation at home and con-
tinue purchases abroad.

Lose Estate,
But Don't Yap
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 10-()-
Lawyer Carleton Bainbridge's
talking dogs lost his $30,000 estatej
today. A superior court jury held
that the attorney was of unsound
mind when he made his will two
days before his death last spring.
There was no immediate com-
ment from either Pat or Gunner,
the disinherited Irish terriers.
Both were silent throughout the
:hree-week trial, except for one
occasion when Gunner, told to
argue a point, growled convincing-
Bainbridge's will was contested
by his brother, Sherman, writer
and editor. Under terms of the
original document, the money was
willed to the dogs and to Charles
F. Connelly, painting contractor
and long-time friend of the at-
torney, to care for them.
Witnesses during the trial,
which lasted three weeks, testi-
fied that Bainbridge told them his
dogs enjoyed Mickey Mouse and
other movies, had different tastes
in literature, and could converse
with him in English but that he
told them he had postponed a trip
to Germany because of difficul-
ties in teaching them the Teu-
tonic tongue.

Meets Third

America's most ambitious foot-
ball team, Pittsburgh, moves into
the third round of its murderous
schedule when it takes on Michi-
gan's. powerful Wolverines in
Michigan Stadium at 2 p.m. this
Straining at the leash for a
chance to get into the Western
Conference, the Smoky City sche-
dule-makers whipped up an agen-
da that would scare the hip pads
off of most gridiron elevens.
After battling last year's Rose
Bowl champs from Illinois in their
opener, the Panthers came smack
up against Notre Dame's national
champions last week. And this
week they square off against the
contender for the Irish' throne.
Pittsburg Chances
Chances for a Pittsburgh victor
are considered practically non-
existant, but speculation is run-
ning high as to the final score of
the game.
Some observers point to the
Panthers' record of holding Illin-
ois scoreless for three quarters and
out-playing Notre Dame's All-
American studded front wall for
over half a game.
Rough Going-Over
Others feel that the big, rugged
line, Coach Mike Milligan has
culled from the Pennsylvania coal
mines has had a pretty rough go-
ing-over the past two weeks and
won't have much left for Fritz
Crisler's boys.
Added to this is the fact that
Milligan has lost his first and
second-string ,quarterbacks a and
first-string guard through injur-

Bill Bruno, number one signal
caller for the Panthers and their
top defensive man, was injuried
in the Illinois game and did not

proved equally rough on quarter-
backs and Cummins did not' come
west either.
Therefore the heavy burden of
