Brazil Break

Is Expected
Izvestia Attack
On Dutra Cited




I .By The Associated Press
RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil, Oct.
17-A high government source
said today that Brazil will break
diplomatic relations with Soviet
Russia as a result of Moscow's
failure to apologize for an attack
in the government newspaper Iz-
vestia upon President Eurico Gas-
par Dutra.
Izvestia recently declared that
Dutra was subservient to the
United States and made other at-
tacks offensive to the Brazilian
army and government. The Mos-
cow Literary Gazette in another
article said President Dutra was
a "crab with claws" who followed
the lead of the "United States
horse with hooves."
Asks Explanation.
Foreign Minister Raul Fernan-
des announced on Oct. 14 that the
Brazilian government had asked'
Soviet Russia for an explanation
of these comments in the Soviet
p ress.
The high informant said an
official announcement of the
break in relations could be ex-
pected within 72 hours.
Similar Attitude
Well-informed diplomatic
sources said other American na-
tions may adopt a similar attitude
to emphasize their solid support of
Chile who recently expelled two
Yugoslav diplomats, charging they
were fomenting strikes in Chile as
part of a Belgrade-directed cam-
paign of the new Communist In-
ternational information bureau.
As, a result of the expulsion
Marshal Tito's Yugoslav govern-
ment severed relations with Chile.
Britain Urges
Russia Accept
' Compromise
LAKE SUCCESS, Oct. 17-(P)--
Britain, mixing large doses of sar-
casm aimed directly at Russia
with a strong plea for Soviet-
American cooperation, urged the
Russians today to accept a com-
promise on Secretary of State
1 arshall's plan for a year-round
sitting of the 57 United Nations
Russia promptly rejected the
British appeal with the curt re-
mark that the word "compromise"
was not in her glossary in this
case. She assailed the Marshall
Plan once more, charged it is part
of an American.plan to . "dictate"
world policy.
The United States meanwhile
picked up support elsewhere in
the UN Assembly's 57-member po-
litical committee for- the "Little
Assembly" idea.' France endorsed
it in principle and Brazil, Argen-
tina and the Philippines back it.
The British said they favored it

Ancient Rivalry
This conflict marks the 22nd engagement between the two grid-

Murray Attacks Profiteers;
Invites Private Bargaining

BOSTON, Oct. 17-(P)-Philip
Murray started his eighth year as
head of the CIO today by chal-
lenging the nation's leaders to jail
profiteers and inviting American
employers to bargain without fed-
eral intervention.
Re-elected by cheering, shout-
ing delegates of the 6,000,000-
member congress, Murray said he
"prays" for labor unity. He dis-
counted any immediate hope for
it, however, and turned sarcastic
words toward AFL President Wil-
liam Green and his own one-time
associate and the original CIO
leader, John L. Lewis.
Murray told the -convention
which has pledged itself to "un-
precedented" electioneering for la-
bor in 1948:
"In the presence of rising liv-
ing costs, the Taft-Hartley law.
lack of adequate housing, lack of
adequate social security, lack of
veterans' legislation, and with

reaction in the saddle, we must
go forward militantly, construc-
tively and intelligently seeking the
eradication of all these evils."
The 61-year-old leader, once
a Scotch immigrant coal miner,
was returned to the presidency in
an election which saw only one
change among the nine vice-pres-
idents, the naming of 0. A.
Knight, president of the oil work-
ers international since 1940.

This will be Miss Munsel's first
Ann Arbor appearance. The Met-
ropolitan's youngest star, she has
been singing in opera since she
was 18, and is now on her fifth
national concert tour.
Last year, her numerous net-
work performances won for her
the title of "best female vocalist,"
in a national poll of radio editors.
Miss Munsel made her debut in
opera as Philine in "Mignon," in
December, 1943.
Immediately dubbed "Princess
Pat" of the Met, the youthful
prima donna from Spokane,
Washington augmented her reper-
toire in subsequent seasons to in-
clude "Tales of Hoffman," "Rig-
oletto," "Barber of Seville," and
other well-known operas.
Miss Munsel will be assisted by
Stuart Ross at the piano and
Betty Wood, flutist, in the foolow-
ing program: Alleluja (from "Ex-
ultate"), Mozart; Ah! o so, Mo-
zart; The Wren, Benedict; Noc-
turne, Poldowski; Mon petit coeur
soupire, arranged by Wekerlin; Air

Tickets may still be obtained for

the Hill Auditorium Box Office.
ID Cards Will
Be Distributed
Distribution of the new 1947-
48 student identification cards
gets underway today.
Thousands of the cards will be
mailed to students today and
Monday. Cards will be sent by
mail to students who left stamped,
self-addressed envelopes in the
Office of Student Affairs.
The remaining cards may be
picked up starting Wednesday in
a booth located outside Rm. 2
University Hall. An alphabetical
schedule of distribution has been
set up with students in the A to
K name bracket slated to pick up
cards on Wednesday.
On Thursday students whose
last names begin with L through
Z may secure their cards at the
booth. All remaining cards may be
picked up on Friday.
Some 500 students have been
notified by postcard to report to
the Office of Student Affairs in

nated in deadlocks.
Last year's 14-14 tie irked Maize
and Blue supporters many of
whom were packing their bags
for a westward trip to the Rose
Bowl. The knotted contest, which
came one week after. Michigan's
all-out struggle against Army's
powerhouse, enabled Illinois to re-
lax in the throne-room of the
Western Conference.
Wildcats Tied Michigan
Oddly enough, the other dead-
lock-a scoreless brawl-also
knocked the Wolverines out of the
running for premier Conference
honors in 1938. That was Fritz
Crisler's first year in Ann Arbor-
and the Wolverine coach had to
settle for second place with a rec-
ord of five triumphs, one setback,
and the tie.
Crisler, who has yet to see his
boys taste a Wildcat defeat in his
ten years as the Maize and Blue
head coach, is expected to main-
tain this lily-white slate for at
least another year. The dopesters
have installed Michigan as a 21-
point favorite for today's warfare.
Wolverines Favored
The professional odds-makers,
like almost everybody else, have
been impressed with Michigan's
prowess in the three non-Can-
ference games pfayed this year. In
that span, the Wolverines have
rolled up an impressive total of
173 points while holding their op-
ponents to a mere 13. As a result,
they were voted the nation's No.
1 college football team in this
week's Associated Press Poll.
Northwestern, under its new
coach, Bob Voigts, 31-year-old
alumnus, have won only one out
of three games, but that was a
stunning 27-26 upset of the
powerful UCLA eleven. Minnesota
shattered Voigt's Big Nine debut
last week, 37-21.

Michigan Fans
Heading West
8,000 Expected for
Northwestern Game
All highways heading westward
yesterday were thronged with
Wolverine gridiron fans heading
for Chicago.
Some 8,000 Michigan football
fans from all over the state will
attend today's' grid classic. As
early as yesterday morning scores
of hitchhiking students thronged
highways outside of Ann Arbor on
their way to Evanston.
Ticket officials at Northwestern
report a sellout for the game.
Some 48,000 fans will fill every
nook and cranny in Dyche Sta-
dium to view the grid clash.
The famed Michigan marching
band, 131 strong, left Ann Ar-
bor yesterday in a series of Uni-
versity buses. Today the band will
share the half-time spotlight with
the Northwestern musial aggre-
gation. The Wolverine group will
put the Northwestern Wildcat
through the same meat grinder
that chewed up the Pitt Panther
last weekend.

OFFICIAL BUSINESS-This official looks on with amazement
as Bob Mann stands all alone on the three yard line to take
another Chappuis pass. Northwestern's Wildcats must keep this
flying wingman in check today if they are to halt the Wolverines'
passing attack.

brought- a warning for greater
precautions from the Office of
Student Affairs.
Latestvictims of thieves are
residents of Zeta Beta Tau fra-
ternity, 2006 Washtenaw, whose
house has been robbed of some
$200 and one watch. According to
police reports, the intruders en-
