VA Reports
New Veteran
Leave Policy
etween Tern,.
Checks Initiated
New leave policies are now in ef-
fect which permit unbroken sub-
sistence payments to veterans at-
tending college under the G.I. Bill
and continuing their studies under
an accelerated program, the Vet-
erans Administration announced
Under the new regulations,
veterans will receive subsistence
payments for the full enroll-
ment period certified to the VA
by the educational institution,
provided there are no more than
15 days between terms. Such
between-term leaves will be
charged against their eititle-
Veterans will be on the subsis-
tence rolls from the date of en-
rdllment until 15 days after the
close of the semester. This will
enable the VA the make final pay-
ments of subsistence allowance
without delay to those men who
do not return for the following
No leaves other than 15-day
extension in training status will
be authorized by the VA with the
exception of the scholastic leaves
offered by the educational .insti-
tution to other students.
The between-term leave is au-
tomatically granted to all veter-
ans on 'enrollment. However, vet-
erans do not desire this leave are
required to notify the VA in writ-
ing at least 30 days before the end
of the school year or other period
of enrollment.
The new leave provisions will
not apply to veterans interrupt-
ing their training before the end
L of the term. In such cases, auth-
orization for subsistence pay-
ments will end at the date edu-
cational training was interrupt-
If, on the other hand, the period
of a veteran's eligibility ends af-
ter the middle of a semester, his
eligibility for study will be con-
tinued until the end of that sem-
ester and authorization for subsis-
tence allowances extended accord-
In the past, student-veterans
earned leave at the rate of two
and a half days a month during
the course of study.
Vet Delegates
Meet at Union
Renew Campaign To
Increase Subsistence
A renewed campaign to increase
subsistence for student veterans
will get under way at 2 p.m. to-
day in the Union, when delegates
from colleges and universities
throughout the state meet to map
out preliminary strategy for part
two of "Operation Subsistence."
Tentative plans call for a
statewide conference later this
month to draw up a final pro-
gram of ways and means of con-
vincing Congress of the vet-
erans' needs.
"Our sights will be concentrated
on the House this time," George

Antonofsky, AVC's campus chap-'
ter delegate remarked. "We were
apparently able to convince the
Senate of our needs earlier this
(In the last week of the Con-
gressional session, the Senate
approved a subsistence increase
of $10 per month for single vet-
erans and $15 per month for
married students. Additional al-
lowances for additional depen-
dents were provided for as well.
The measure failed to vote to
a vote in the House, however.)
In connection with the first
drive for subsistence hikes last
year, the campus chapter of AVC

'Drinking Ban' Meets
With Student Protests
A wave of protest against the University's new "drinking ban"
has arisen on campus.
Revised interpretations of a University drinking rule were con-
demned as "unrealistic," "mid-Victorian," and "unnecessary regula-
tion" by students and alumni interviewed yesterday in a Daily survey.
Subjecting students to disciplinary action if they attend a
social function where liquor is served, even if they are over 21, was

termed "unfair" by Phil Licht,
president of the West Quadrangle.
He added:
It's unfortunate that Univer-

their adult students with social-
ly acceptable beverages."

as explained to women house pres-

Commenting on the ban of beer
picnics, Shirley Meyer, '49, said:
"I can't see the point of it. I don't
see that picnics have ever done
any harm in the past. It will just
make students sneak around, and
hold their parties farther from
town. If they can go to the Bell,
why not to picnics."
Everett Ellin, Engineering
Council president, said: "Stu-
dents our age should be able to
use their own discretion."
One alumnus commented: "It's
foolish. The University should
stop trying to regulate the lives
of its students. When will they
learn that you can't stop students
with laws. If beer drinking is the

Colin Clark To
Lecture Here
Colin Clark, director of the Bu-
reau of Industry, government sta-
tistician and financial adviser to
the treasury of the state of
Queensland, Australia will lecture
on "Wealthy and Poor Nations"
at 4:15 p.m. Tuesday in the Rack-
ham Amphitheatre.
Clark, in addition to his official
capacity, is an eminent lecturer
and author. After receiving mas-
ters' degrees from both Oxford and
Cambridge, he worked under the
late Prof. Allyn Young at the
London School of Economics. Be-
fore assuming his present post, he
served for a number of years as
lecturer in statistics at Cambridge.
Presented by the economics de-
partment and the business admin-
istration school, Clark will dis-
cuss, in non-technical terms, the
outlooks of the major world pow-
ers toward resources and poten-
tials of further economic develop-
ment from a sociological as well
as economic viewpoint. The lec-
ture is open to all students.

West Lodge
Food Dispute
To Be Aired
Meals Claimed
Complaints made by two Uni-
versity students about food served
at West Lodge Cafetreia in Wil-
low Village will be aired tomor-
row at a meeting between the stu-
dents and Mr. E. Thomas, man-
ager of the cafeteria.
Edward Norbeck and Carroll
Barber, who claimed in a letter
to The Daily that the food is
poorly prepared and unappetiz-
ing, said that they thought the
discussion would help straight-
en out the difficulty.
Barber added that in his opin-
ion most students eating at West
Lodge Cafeteria think that there
is much room for improvement.
F. C. Shiel, manager of resi-
dence halls, stated yesterday that
the situation has been investigat-
ed, and that the complains were
found to be of a secondary nature.
He declared that he is sure the
difficulty can be resolved. Shiel
said that while it is possible to.
find fault with any restaurant,
the University will do everything
possible to make service at West
Lodge more satisfactory.
The Cafeteria was taken over
directly bythe University last May
following an investigation by the
American Veterans Committee
which showed that under private
management the cafeteria was
providing inferior food under un-
sanitary conditions.
All food now used at West
Lodge is bought through the
University Hospital, which also
purchases for the dormitories
and the League. Prices charged
at West Lodge are regulated by
the University.
When questioned as to foods of-
fered, Miss Elizabeth Langsdale,
resident dietician at the cafeteria,
said that the meals served are
planned scientifically in order to
provide a balanced diet.

Michigan Betters
Notre Dame 40-6
Score Last Week
Mann, Teninga Tally Twice; Six
More Go Over in Panther Slaughter
For one quarter a hard-charging Pittsburgh line held a tidal wave
at bay, but the dam broke early in the second period and Michigan
was off on a touchdown spree that engulfed the Panthers 69-0, as the
Wolverines ran and passed their way to a third straight triumph at
the University of Michigan Stadium, yesterday.
Held in check on their attempt to better Notre Dame's 40-6 win
over Pitt, last Saturday, for 17 minutes, the Wolverines exploded the
first time they got their hands on the ball in the second period. Bob
Chappuis faded from his own thirty yard line, pitched to end Bob
Mann who took it on the Pitt 25 and went on to score with the aid of a
fine block by Dick Rifenburg. Jim'


MORNING AFTER-Two unidentified "M" Club members discon-
solately survey an accumulation of debris collected in their early
morning cleanup of the stadium-the only tangible reminder
of the 59,000 screaming fans who thronged it yesterday and
departed leaving a trail of peanut shells and papers in their
* * * *
Yawning Athletes Sweep Up
Giant Oval On Morning After
Using brooms for aspirin, some four dozen yawning University
students stumbled out to the Stadium early this morning to purge the
giant 85,000 seat oval of its colossal hangover of peanut shells, loose
papers, and miscellaneous rubble left from yesterday's game.
Merely to mention the seething mob of grid fans who crowded into
the Stadium to witness the defeat of the Pitt aggregation is enough to
bring a look of horror to the faces of these forgotten souls-membersj
of the long suffering clan who sweep up and tidy the huge structure
for the next invasion.
Appropriately enough, some of the muscle men who reported for
a session with the broom this a.m. '

are the same ones the crowd came
to see yesterday, for there are
several football players in the
group. In fact, all the men in the
clean-up squad are members of
one or more of Michigan's teams
and, through arrangements with
the Michigan Athletic depart-
ment, only "M" athletes may get
these jobs.
In return for wielding the
broom, each man receives $3.50
per week, plus the leavings of
the previous days, which range
from peanuts and safety pins
to five and ten dollar bills.
All is not peanuts, however, for
the boys who wear the big "M's"
on their sweaters, because their
clean-up job entitles them to par-
ticipate in the very lucrative busi-
ness of selling programs before
game time. Stationing themselves
near the gates about an hour and
a half before the game, they sell
an average of 500 programs, rak-
ing off .three cents on each sale.
Pet peeves of these educated
janitors are many, but one seems
to hold a particular horror for
them-people who throw rolls of
tissue around, leaving long yards
of the white substance dangling
and winding around the benches
from the box seats to Row 72.

AllT' StudentS
Hay Work on
SL Committees
As a corollary to the newly-in-j
stituted streamlined committee
system, the Student Legislature
has established a policy of stu-
dent participation in committee1
work, Harvey Weisberg, Legisla-
ture president, announced yester-
The new system, which pro-
vides for six all-inclusive com-
meeting of the Legislature this
Committees include the Cultural
and Educational and Social com-
mittees, which will serve as cal-
endaring agencies for campus
meetings and all-campus events.'
The Varsity Committee will
sponsor such events as all-cam-
pus pep rallies and homecoming
Other committees are the Social
Service Committee, which will
schedule fund drives and represent
the Legislature on camp projects
and student relief drives; the NSA
Committee and the Public Rela-
tions Committee.
Announcements of individual
committee interviews will be made
in The Daily in the near future.

Brieske missed his one and only
conversion of the day and Michi-
gan led 6-0.
Then the track meet began,
with Michigan rolling up two
more touchdowns in the second
period, three in the third and
four in the fourth.
The scoring was pretty well dis-
tributed, with eight men sharing
the ten touchdowns and Brieske
collecting nine consecutive extra
points. Mann and Wally Teninga
went over twice with Jack Weis-
enburger, Bump Elliott, Gene Der-
ricotte, Len Ford, Ted Peterson,
and Don Kuick each tallying one.
If there was a standout in the
Michigan backfield yesterday, it
prbably was Derricotte. The
flashy Defiance Ohio tailback,
stepped out of the shadow of
All-American candidate Bob
Chappuis and put on a brilliant
exhibition, personally account-
ing for three touchdowns. He
scored on an 80-yard punt re-
turn, which featured such per-
fect blocking that not a man
laid a hand on him. He set up
Ford's touchdown by intercept-
ing a Pittsburgh pass on his own
45 and running it to the 15
where he lateraled to Ford who
went over.
Ted Peterson scored Michigan's
eighth touchdown after Derricottc
personally conducted the Wolver-
ines from the Pitt 48 to the four.
He passed to He'shberger for 12
yards, then ran for three consec-
utive first downs, to put the bal
on the four yard line. Peterso
took it over on the spinner play.
But up in front of Crisler's
seemingly endless supply of
backs, a Michigan line that was
almost perfect, held Pitt to 19
yards on the ground in 21 rush-
ing attempts.

Smother Pitt
Panther Rooters
Muted by Deluge
What will probably be the
smallest crowd of the season, a
mere 59,000 saw the Wolverines
smother the Pitt Panthers under
an avalanche of touchdowns yes-
The Panthers brought along'
a small, but vociferous, rooting
section of some 500 fans. The
Pitt rooters, spurred on by a
crew of cheerleaders, made more
noise than any other group in
the stadium at the outset of the
game. However when the Mich-
igan powerhouse got up steam
sand started to generate touch-
down after touchdown the Pitt
rooters subsided and sat in
stunned silence.
The flag at half-staff yesterday
injected a somber note into the
game. The flag was lowered here,
as in all parts of the nation, to
commemorate the arrival of the
irst war dead in this country
from the far-off foreign lands
where they died in defense of the
American way of life.

front porch and peddled "franks"
to hungry grid fans.
Before the game fans were
startled to hear famed Michigan
songs floating from an appar-
ently empty sky. However closer
examination revealed a loud-
speaker equipped light plane
which broadcast commercials
between the songs.
The gate crashing incidents
which marred earlier games this
season were largely absent from
yesterday's contest. A reinforced
gate crew, plus scores of police
