Concerts Start
Friday Night
Fred Waring and his Pennsyl-
vanians, exclusively a radio at-
traction for the last ten years, will
appear here at 8:30 p.m. Friday
and Saturday in their second na-
tional tour.
Many of the songs to be pre-
sented by the Glee Club are all-
time Waring favorites: "Battle
Hymn of the Republic," "Smoke
Gets in Your Eyes," "Begin the
Beguine," "Star Dust," and "You'll
Never Walk Alone."
Songs of Devotion
One result of the special choral
effects used by the Pennsylvan-
ians, is the large vote given to
songs of devotion by Waring au-
diences. "Ave Maria," "Eli, Eli"

and "The Lord's Prayer," as well
as "Onward Christian Soldiers,"
are constantly requested numbers,
even though the group can be
considered in the "popular" mu-
sic class.
In addition to their regular
numbers, the Pennsylvanians will
present some of the more than 100
college songs composed by Waring.
Special Tonal Effects
Waring's spectacular success
with his vocal numbers has been
attributed both to special tonal
effects and his large staff of ar-
rangers. His staff, the largest of
any musical group, has produced
auch outstanding work as the

Contempt Cited Against
Four More by Congress
Total of Eight Refuse to Give Commitments
On Communist Affiliations in Film Probe
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Oct. 29-With assembly line precision, con-
gressional probers of alleged Communism in Hollywood today ground
out contempt citations against four more screenland figures, bring-
ing the grand total to eight.
The quartet:
Writers Samuel Ornitz and Herbert ,Biberman, Director Edward
Dmytryk and producer Adrian Scott.
As with four other writers against whom it has started contempt
actions, a House sub-committee on Un-American Activities got
nowhere with questions whether Ornitz, Biberman, Dmytryk and
' Scott are Communists.
Ornitz protested the committee
was using "loaded" questions. Bi-
berman accused it of "shameful
and cowardly" tactics. Dmytryk

Third Orientation
Talk To Be Given
University aid to state and na-
tional governments will be the
topic of the third in the series of
Orientation Assembly Lectures, to
be given by Marvin L. Niehuss,
vice-president of the University,
at 8 p.m. today in Hill Auditorium.
'U' Contributions
Discussing "Contributions of the
University to the State and the
Nation," Vice-President Niehuss
will give special attention to the
University's war-time role in gov-
ernmental planning and research.
The part played by individual pro-
fessors, as well as that of special
University programs, will be in-
cluded in the talk.
The University Marching Band,
under the direction of Prof. Wil-
liam D. Revelli, will also partici-
pate in the Assembly, playing a
program of marching music.
Orientation Program
The Assembly meetings, being
presented for the first time this
semester, have been planned as an
extension of the regular Orient-
tion Week program for freshmen
and new transfer students. The
talks have been designed to ac-
quaint the new students with in-
teresting information about the
University and the campus. Other
interested students may also at-
tend the meetings.,

nomics department, will deliver

way the committee wants. Scott
had no "yes or no" answer on
Communism, either.
But another movie writer,
Emmett Lavery, beat the com-
mittee to the punch on Com-
munism. He volunteered that he
is no Red, never has been and
never intends to be. And, speak-
ing as president of the Screen
Writers Guild, Lavery said Com-
munist influences "do not have
control of the guild."
Committee members interrupt-
ed him to say it was "refreshing"
to have a writer testify "without
waving your arms around and
screaming about the bill of
The full House committee-
only three of the nine members
are on hand now for the in-

through on the contempt cita-
tions to make them stick. But
eventually the cases could reach
a federal court, where convic-
tions would carry a maximum
penalty of a year in jail and a
$1,000 fine.
Like the quartet of writers who
tangled with the committee be-
fore, Ornitz and Biberman roared
about constitutional rights, goaded

handed gavel pounding and wereI

President H ails
Committee Plan
By The Associated Press
President Truman's Committee on
Civil Rights today recommended
that Congress and the state legis-
latures outlaw segregation and
discrimination b as e d on race,
color, creed or national origin-
and do it "now."
The Committe also spoke out
against "public excitement" on the
Communist question, but declared
that real Communists and Fascists
should be exposed.
The Committee made 35 specific
recommendations to strengthen
'the American way" of life and
delved into explosive issues which
have embroiled Congress in some
of its bitterest struggles.
Campus Reaction
(First campus reaction to the
committee's report came last night
from the Av. The local chap-
ter's executive committee resolved
to support the findings. They
urged that the first step to back
the fight for civil rights be the
abolition of the Un-American Ac-
tivities Committee, currently in-
vestigating the film colony.)
Discrimination against Negroes
in the South was criticized at
length, but other regions in the
North and West were singled out
for violations of civil rights. The
nation's capital itself was scored
as "a graphic illustration of a
failure of democracy" and as the
gateway to "Jim Crow" transpor-
tation in the South.
Hails Report
President Truman hailed the re-
port with a statement saying he
hopes the Committee has given
the country "as broad a docu-
ment" as the Declaration of In-
dependence. . . "An American
charter of human freedom in our

lynching, anti-poll tax and faii
employment practice laws.
2. Federal and state laws to pre-
vent racial or religious segrega-
tion and discrimination in such
places as trains, buses, schools,
theatres, hotels and restaurants.
3. State laws barring "restric-
tive covenants" in which property
owners bind themselves not to sell
or lease to "undesirables."
Without naming names, the
committee criticized "irresponsible
opportunists who make it a
practice to attack every person or
group with whom they disagree as
Nevertheless, it said, "We can-
not let these abuses deter us from
the legitimate exposing of real

Features U'
Seven Page Spread
Shows Rally, Game
The University will be all over
the country this week pictorially.
"Life," which attended Home-
,coming here last week-end, will
feature a seven-page picture story
on the events, in this week's is-
sue, on sale tomorrow.
"Time," "Life's" sister publica-
tion, will feature a story on Wol-
verine football. The issue will hit
the stands today.
Flown to Chicago
Three photographers and three
editorial writers from "Life" took
the pictures and gathered the ma-
terial for the story.
They took photographs of the
Pep Rally, which were flown to
Chicago on a chartered plane dur-
ing the night. Two pages of the
story were blocked out Saturday
by other members of the New York
staff, who had gone directly to
Chicago. This work was under the
direction of Edward K. Thompson,
assistant managing editor.
It was the first time in "Life's"
history that the New York office
had sent a staff to Chicago to
close out a story. It was also the
first time that a story running
seven .pages had been photo-
graphed on the spot and rushed
into print so rapidly.
'Shot' The Game
The "Life" delegation shot the
game Saturday and some. post
game activities, after which they
were rushed to Willow Run airport
and flown to Chicago.
An all night session was needed
to develop the negatives, select
the pictures and get the entire
story ready to go to press Sunday.
Gene Farmer, sports editor,
headed the group which did the
Homecoming story. David Zeitlin,
a graduate of the University, acted
as sports researcher. Both are
from the New York office.
Miss Helen Douglas, from the
Chicago office was the third mem-
ber of the editorial staff.
Photograph of Fans
Opening picture in the Home-
coming story will be a photograph
of the fans during the tense mo-
ments of the game. Other pic-
tures will show the ,Pep Rally, the
team, the band formation, and
girls at a sorority putting up deco-
In addition, there will be action
shots of the game and candid
shots of alumni.

Reports Say
Also Fatal to
Two Officials
Search Parties
Near Wreckage
By The Associated Pres
29 - The shattered wreckage
of a plane carrying Oregon's gov-
ernor, secretary of state, state
senate president, and their pilot
was sighted today "so damaged
that no one could be alive."
The plane, which left here last
night when the state official,
started a southern Oregon hunting
outing, crashed at the top of a hill,
three miles west of Dog Lake in
the rough, timbered lower Barnes
Aboard the craft were Ore-
gon's key state executives--
Governor Earl Snell, 52; State
Senate President Marshall Cor-
nett, 49, next in line of succes-
sion to the governorship; Sec-
retary of State Robert S. Farrell
Jr., 41, and Cliff Hogue, 42,
Klamath Falls pilot.
The crashed private plane was
seen from the air, but darkness
and rain prevented a definite
ground check of the fate of Ore-
gon's leaders.
Radio communications said to-
night that searchers had criss-
crossed the rugged, heavily tim-
bered area three times without
finding the wreckage, concealed
by pounding rain and darkness.
Two reports-one from Ham-
ilton Field, Calif., and one from
Oregon's acting adjudant gen-
eral-that the plane had been
found with all dead were with-
out confirmation from the for-
est service searching parties.
Private pilots from Lakeview,
Ore., sighted the wreckage -
wings bent at a 90 degree angle
from normal, trees snapped off, a
swath cut through the hillside-
late this afternoon. Flying at tree-
top height, they read the private
plane's license number, and re-
ported "no sign of life. The plane
is damaged so badly that no one
could be alive."
The nearest town to the crash
scene was Bly, 22 miles to the
north. Employes of the Fremont
National Forest, working within a
few miles of the wreckage, were
dispatched through the roadless,
rugged region toward the site.
The terrain, drenched with
rain and some snow, was so
near-impassible that one forest
crew which at 6 p.m. had left a
logging road only a mile and a
half or two from the reported
crash scene still had not re-
turned to its roadside radio
three hours later. Another crew
was working into the area from
the other side.
The State, tensely awaiting
news of its chief officials, was
flooded with reports. A statement
by Oregon's Adjutant General
Raymond F. Olsen at 6:52 p.m.
that the men had all been found
dead proved erroneous-apparent-
ly dueto a garble in radio trans-

Coeducation Preferable to
U.S. Food Oxonians Declare

Coeducation is a "delightful in-.
stitution," Oxford's three-man de-
bating team. enthusiastically af-
firmed in an interview with The
Daily yesterday.
"Of course, it may distract
really clever people from their
work," David Kenneth Harris said,
"but for most students it seems
the ideal situation."
The Hon. Anthony Neil Wedg-
wood Benn noted that Oxford has
coeds, too, "but we keep them
pretty much locked up in their
own colleges." -
American coeds are "not so shy
and inhibited" as their English
sisters, Harris said, adding that
"they speak right up; don't seem
a bit afraid of you."

In sports, Harris agreed that
perhaps Americans play more toj
win than for the sake of the game
itself, "but we Englishmen don't
play to lose, you know.
Pep for Breakfast
Early rising students will be
able to supplement their morn-
ing exercise with a few rowdy
cheers tomorrow.
A send-off pep rally, spon-
sored by the Student Legisla-
ture Varsity Committee and the
Wolverine Club, will be held
from 8 to 8:15 a.m. in front of
the Union "to see that the team
gets off to Champaign in the
right frame of mind."
