Ramadier Gets
Narrow Vote
Of Conf idence
PARIS, Oct. 30-(RP)-The Gov-
ernment of Socialist Premier Paul
Ramadier, which he pictured as
a middle-of-the-road regime, re-
ceived a 20-vote majority on a
confidence motion in the National
Assembly tonight in the face of
Communist and DeGaulist oppo-
' But m any parliamentarians,
and even associates of the premier,
conceded that the Ramadier cabi-
net would have to be reshuffled
The approval of the govern-
ment's motion by 300 votes to 280,
with 18 abstentions, came at the
and of two days of near-riotous
debate in which booing and name-
calling was the order of the day.
Many deputies, and some mem-
bers of Ramadier's office, said
they believed the cabinet would be
shaken up within a month in or-
der to bring in Leon Blum, elder
Socialist statesman, and the war-
time premier Paul Reynaud, an in-
dependent rightist.

since their last appearance here
in 1921.
It was its performance here for
the 1921 J-Hop that startedrthe
Waring organization on the road
to success. Immediately after
playing here Waring was booked
for vaudeville shows in Detroit
and Chicago and a radio program
overWWJ, Detroit.
In one respect this will be a tri-
umphal return for the Waring
group. When they first came here,
25 years ago with only eight men,
the outfit ran out of money, and
was given quarters by the Theta
Delta Chi fraternity. Now, after a
quarter of a century, they are re-
turning, 45 strong and world-fa-
mous. The band will renew ac-
quaintances with the fraternity at
a supper tonight.,
Went to Paris
For six years, Waring played
theatre dates and then in 1927
went to Paris for engagements at
the Cafe des Ambassadeurs and
the Paris Opera House. After the
group returned to America, it ap-
peared in the movie, "Syncopa-
tion," and appeared in three
Broadway revues.
In 1933, the Waring organiza-
tion started its first commercial
radio show, and made its first
popular record with a vocal
chorus. The same year, they in-
troduced their first popular broad-
cast with glee club effects.
Six Shows Per Week
Today, the Fred Waring organi-
zation is the only group on the air
to be sponsored by four products,
as well as being the only major
radio group with six shows per

WASHINGTON, Oct. 30- The
big investigation of Communism
in Hollywood wound up today with
testimony from former FBI opera-
tive Louis Russell that a Russian
agent tried unsuccessfully in 1942
to wangle "highly secret" infor-
mation from atom bomb expert J.
Robert Oppenheimer.
No Evidence
But the House Committee on
Un-American activities produced
no evidence at all that movie stars
or anyone else in Hollywood had
any direct connection with these
"espionage activities."
It did, however, turn out con-
tempt actions against two more
Hollywood figures-writers Ring
Lardner, Jr., and Lester Cole. They
joined eight other persons on the
contempt list when they wouldn't
say definitely whether they are
Communists or not.

chopped off the hearing in its

will be started up again "in the

NEW DELHI, Oct. 30-(P)-Two
battalions of army troops from the
Dominion of India were reported
in danger of being lost today in
the fight to save Kashmir, prince-
ly border state, from wat a com-
petent informant said was an in-
vasion deliberately hatched in
Moslem Pakistan.
Kashmir, predominantly Mos-
lem state, suddenly joined Hindu
India on a provisional basis last
week in a bid for protection
against the invasion by irregulars
from Moslem Pakistan.
The two Sikh battalions flown
into the beleaguered state were
reported by a competent authority
to be using two Tempest fighter
planes and battling desperately
against superior numbers and fire-
power after a retreat which one
source said was to within 10miles
of Srinagar, the Kashmir capital.
The informant said the invading
force was made up of 2,500 to
3,000 Mahsud and Afridi tribes-
men, Moslem leaguers and former
soldiers from Pakistan's western
frontier force who were being re-
inforced by new arrivals from over
the frontier and who were well
supplied with modern arms, in-
cluding machineguns, mortars,
howitzer artillery and vehicles.

Firms in Anti-
NEW YORK, Oct. 30--UP)-The
government laid monopoly
charges today against 17 of Wall
Street's leading banking firms in
a civil suit described by Attorney
General Tom Clark as "one of the
largest and most important in the
history of the anti-trust laws,"
The financial district, veteran of
many battles with regulatory and
investigative groups, countered
with a series of denials and dug in
for a show-down fight.
"If they want a fight," said
John M. Hancock, partner of Leh-
man Bros., a firm named in the
suit, "we'll give it to them."
"My guess," he added, "is that'
it will be a dirty fight."
The suit, filed by the Depart-
ment of Justice in Federal District
Court for Southern New York, spe-
cifically accused the 17 interna-
tionally known investment bank-
ing firms with conspiring to mon-
opolize the handling of new issues
of securities.
The Department of Justice in
addition asked for the dissolution
of the Investment Bankers Asso-

Lidice Story
Told by Girls
NUERNBERG, Oct. 30-(OP)-
Two teen-age girls and a middle-
aged woman, survivors of Lidice,
told for the first time in a war
crimes court today the dramatic
story of how the Germans wiped
out their village in revenge for the
killing of a single Gestapo chief.
The girls told how they were
torn from the families the night
of June 9, 1942, when German
tanks suddenly surrounded the
Czech village, then shipped away,
singled out as of the "nordic type"
and farmed out to German fam-
ilies where they were forbidden to
speak the Czech language and
made to join the Hitler youth.
The woman told how the women
and children were corraled in a
school house while the village was
burned and the men shot. Then,
she said, the women were sent to

Vet Organization to Aid Drive With
November Showing of 'Open City'
AVC's campus chapter gave the lagging Red Feather drive a shot
in the arm yesterday, pledging $1,000 to the campaign-the largest
contribution of any single organization in the history of the Ann Arbor
Community Chest.
The donation boosted the University's contributions by five per
cent, bringing its total to 72.3 per cent of a $22,000 quota. It helped
lift the city's total above the 75 per cent mark in the drive.
The AVC announced, that, in line with its all-out support of the
Community Chest drive, it would sponsor a presentation of the prize-
winning Italian film, "Open City" in Hill Auditorium on Nov. 7 and 8.
All proceeds will go to the Fund.
