Chairman Charles Luckman of the
Citizens Food Committee an-

whole distilling industry will close
down for 60 days at midnight Oct.
25, to conserve grain for shipment
to Western Europe.
Luckman told reporters after a
three-hour session with industry
spokesmen that 36 of the 39 dis-
tillery companies had agreed to
The decision was made despite
a plea of the AFL Distillery Work-
ers' Union for a ten-day delay be-
fore ordering action.
Luckman told reporters that
the industry executives estimated
the unemployment in the shut-
down at 2,500 to 7,500 workers,
as against union estimate ranging
from 30,000 to 100,000.
Bottling, shipping, selling, main-
tenance and other distillery opera-
tions will continue, Luckman ex-
plained, and some of the distill-
ers already have discussed with
the food committee the possibility
of reassigning the laid-off em-
ployes to other jobs.
Combination game and train
tickets for the Illinois-Michigan
game, scheduled for Nov. 1, are
now available, according to Don
Greenfield, of the Wolverine Club.
Seats on the 40 and 50 yard

game, which will be played at

leave Ann Arbor at 6:30 a.m.
Tickets for the Northwestern

NEW YORK, Oct. 13-For the
first time in more than three
years, a college eleven other than

Notre Dame Ranks Second
Notre Dame, which held the
number one position inthe final
poll of 1946 and was installed in
the top slot again in this season's
first poll last week just ahead of
Michigan, slipped a notch into
second place with 1,103 points.
The Fighting Irish, despite their
22-7 triumph over Purdue, their
second straight win this season,
received only 23 first place votes
with 55 writers picking them sec-
Texas, a power in the South-
west, was third with 996 points, on
the strength of 10 first place votes,
35 seconds and 48 thirds. The un-
defeated Longhorns, with four vic-
tories including a convincing
34-14 triumph over Oklahoma
Saturday, was the only other team
to get more than two first place
votes. The remaining five first
place picks were divided thusly:
Wake Forest two, Georgia Tech,
Illinois and Minnesota one each.

than a second place vote, of which
they got but four, California's

tute its first defeat 20-0.

draw by Army, Illinois, 1946 Big
Nine champions, was installed in
sixth place over the Cadets 529

Under the plans for expansion

physical examinations and appear
before a board of officers, who
will determine the final selection.
