G.I. Benefits
Not Inclusive
Of Families
Grants Linited
To School Fees
Current provisions of the G.I.
Bill of Rights do not provide for
the extension of Health Service
benefits to the families of student
veterans, a University spokesman
declared yesterday.
Under the present law, proposed
use of a part of veterans' educa-
tional and training benefits to re-
compense the University for the
added cost, of providing Health
Service facilities for the wives and
-children of veterans is not au-
thorized, he pointed out.
Limited Specifically
'He explained that the maximum
of $500 per academic year allowed
the student veteran for educa-
tional and training benefits by the
Federal Government under Public
Law 346 is specifically limited to
payment for tuition, books, lab-
oratory fees and other charges
customarily required of all Uni-
versity students.
Replying to statements by Dr.
Warren E, Forsythe, Health Serv-
ice director, Ed Shaffer, chairman
of MYDA, pointed out that MY-
DA's proposal is not limited to
veterans' families alone, but ex-
tends to the wives and children
of non-veteran students and
teaching assistants.
MYDA believes that the exten-
sion of Health Service benefits
to the families of students is with-
in the basic function of the Uni-
versity he declared.
t Not Filly Effective
"Inasmuch as the basic purpose
of the Health Service program is
to provide low cost medical care'
to protect the health of students,
we feel that such a program can-
not be fully effective unless the
families of students also receive
these services," Shaffer said.
He conceded that Health Serv-
ice facilities were overtaxed, but
expressed MYDA's belief that ar-
rangements for out-patient dis-
pensaries in student dormitories
and the use of excess University
Hospital beds would help alleviate
the situation and provide more
facilities for students' families.
Taft Believes
Marshall Plan
Too Expensive
WASHINGTON, Nov. 11-(A3)-
Secretary of State Marshall today
recommended spending $2,657,-
000,000 on foreign aid between
now and next July 1, and Senator
Taft (R.-Ohio) quickly opposed
the sum as being altogether too
After Marshall had placed his
proposal before the Senate For-
eign Relations Committee, Taft
told a news conference: "I would
be absolutely opposed to any such
addition to this fiscal year's ap-
The Ohioan, who heads the
Senate Republican Policy Com-
mittee, declined to set any figure
on the amount he would approve.
But he said he did not believe
there should be any increase in
the rate at which this activity
now is being carried on.

Taft has said the outlays for
foreign economic help and for
relief total about $4,500,000,000
for the fiscal year ending June 30,
He told reporters he wants to
go ahead with an appropriation
for interim aid to Europe, but
that he believes too large expen-
ditures are proposed both in it and
the long range Marshall Plan for
European economic recovery.
But Chairman Vandenberg (R.-
Mich.) also called on Marshall for
a "total balance sheet" of pro-
posed expenditures for foreign aid
by this government during the
remainder of the fiscal year, end-
ing June 30, 1948.
Marshall then dgscribed the
overall program, which totals
$2,657,000,000, including $60,000,-
000 for China. He also called for
restoration of the German econ-
omy, which he called "vital."

Daily Takes Initative in
Newspaper Convention
Facts, Figures, Problems To Be Discussed
By College Representatives Meeting Here
Plans for a college newspaper convention to be held here Febru-
ary 21-22, the first of its kind in the country, have been worked out by
members of The Daily's business staff and approved by 10 invited pa-
pers at present.
Purpose of convention will be to "compare notes" on operating
procedure, for the mutual improvement of each paper. Invited papers
have been requested to send detailed publication facts, figures and
problems for discussion to The Daily. A discussion agenda, subject to
change, has already been prepared.
Business managers and managing editors have been invited to
_-attend. It is hoped that this con-

'U' Conserves
As Fuel Needs
Winter Requirements
Only Partially Filled
University people will be able to
keep warm this winter, but fuel
conservation measures will have
to be taken; a survey made by The
Daily reveals.
Walter L. Bulbick, University
Purchasing Agent, said that the
University. nearly all of whose
buildings use coal, has enough coal
on hand to last into February.
Contracts with five mine opera-
tors, Bulbick said, "give us every
reason to believe that, barring
strikes or a serious coal car short-
age, enough coal will be delivered
to last through the winter."
Full Supply
Most fraiternity, sorority and
league houses using coal have al-
ready laid in a full winter's supply.
Those using fuel oil hold contracts
which they expect will be filled.
Local coal dealers said that their
supply will be adequate, but pre-
dicted a shortage of certain types
of hard coal because of European
shipments and a shortage of rail-
road coal cars.
Fuel oil dealers said that they
could give their old customers "as
much as they got last year," but
that "we're turning down new cus-
tomers every day."°
'Worse Than Last Year'.
The fuel oil outlook is "worse
than last year," one dealer re-
ported, because of a shortage of
tank cars and a 40 per cent fall-
ing-off in Michigan fuel oil pro-
The local gas company reported
that they would be able to supply
all gas furnaces which were or-
dered installed before April 15,
No installation orders have been
taken since that date because of a
natural gas shortage which will
continue until a pipeline can be
laid to tap the Texas supply.
House managers said that they
intended to take the usual fuel
conservation measures, such as,
controlling heat by thermostat,
and keeping windows closed or
radiators turned off.

Over Addes,
JAW Faction
Leader Elected
President A ain
By The Associated Press
-Walter Reuther was reelected
president of the CIO United Autc
Workers today and his forces
scored an even more crucial vic-
tory when they knocked out Sec-
retary-Treasurer Geroge F. Addes
Addes, leader of the anti-Reu-
ther faction in the UAW, lost his
job to Reuther-picked Emil Mazey
of Detroit.
Shortly before 8 p.m. (EST)
Mazey had 3,773 votes, more than
a majority in the roll-call vote.
Addes had 2,088, according tc
an unofficial tally.
The election of Mazey to the
Union's second highest post vir-
tually assured Reuther of com-
plete control of the leadershi:
after years of bitter factiealism
Capped Rise
Reuther's overwhelming margin
over two unknown opponents with
no organized backing capped his
25-year rise in the labor move-
ment. That was almost taken for
granted, but the full weight of his
strength was put to the test when
he named Mazey, a militant in-
dividualist on and off the labor
front, to run against Addes.
The latter has held the post for
11 years; he is the only secre-
tary-treasurer the union ever had
and has been opposed only once.
His leadership of the so-called
"left wing" anti-Reuther forces is
seldom questioned.
On the Addes outcome seemed
to rest the fate tomorrow of the
anti-Reuther faction's two vice-
presidential candidates - R. J.
Thomas and Richard T. Leonard,
the incumbents.
Brought Demonstration
For these posts they will be
faced by Reuther-supported Rich-
ard Gosser of Toledo and John
Livingstone of St. Louis.
Reuther's nomination brought a
lively, 15-minute demonstration
by his followers. Hundreds of
them marched around the room
and across the platform while a
band played "Reuther Is Our
Leader." Reuther placards, bal-
loons, noise makers and confetti
added the first real color to the
convention scene.
The 40-year-old Reuther's rout
of his organized opposition came
as he expected after the Addes
faction gave up hope of winning
the top office.
Reuther had the blessing of
CIO President Philip Murray, the
only CIO official who now stands
above him in prestige.
Even Reuther's opponents-and
he still has many-agree he has
come a long way in the labor
movement since he quit high
school in Wheeling, W. Va., at the
age of 15 to become an appren-
tice tool and die maker.

his career.
Conductor Bruno Walter heard
him and invited him to Vienna,
after which he sang in many other

Soviets Reported
To Have Set Off

Seismological Apparatus Register
Tremors on Alleged Explosion Day
By The Associated Press
PARIS, Nov. 11-The rightist newspaper L'Intransigeant today
printed a copyrighted dispatch purporting to come from Russia which
said the Soviet Union was making atomic bombs and that Soviet
scientists had exploded their first test model in Siberia on June 15.
The story was datelined "Prague," Czechoslovakia, and car-
ried the byline of "John Griggs" which the newspaper explained
was a pseudonym because the writer still was in Russia. The dis-
patch said the information came from "confidential sources" and
carried the parenthetical note, "information transmitted from
Moscow via Prague." L'Intransigeant said the author was "neither
an American nor British."
An Associated Press dispatch from Prague said weak tremors
were registered on seismograph-

Premier Gets
Life Sentence
BUCHAREST, Romania, Nov. 11
-(A)-A military tribunal of the
Communist-led Romanian govern-
ment today found 75-year-old
Juliu Maniu guilty of high treason
and sentenced him to solitary con-
finement in prison for the remain-
der of his life.
Eighteen associates of the for-
mer premier, head of the National
Peasant Party, received sentences
varying from life at hard labor to
one year in jail. Of four tried in
absentia, two received life sen-
tences at hard labor.
Counsel for Maniu and his as-
sociates lodged formal appeals
from the verdicts.
Maniu, the Catholic leader of
the anti-Communist opposition,
was sentenced to an additional 10
years on other charges that in-
cluded entering into relations with
foreign powers-the United States
and Britain-to overthrow the re-.
gime of Communist Premier Petru
Both the United States and
Britain had protested the arrest.

Maniu steadfastly denied all the
charges brought against him in
the 14-day trial that opened Oct.
29. Last night in reference to the
more than 40 years he has given of
his life to Romanian politics he
cried out in his last defense:
"I demand proof of these pain-
ful accusations. I, who sacrificed
my life for Romania, cannot plot
or instigate. These calumnes were
wont to be thrown against me by
the gutter press."

security. Some declared ways must
be found to preserve the peace lest
the trust of men who died in two
world wars be betrayed.
Heavy rain fell at the country's
most hallowed Armistice Day
service, held at the tomb of the
unknown soldier at Arlington
Cemetery near Washington.
Despite the downpour, President
Truman stood bareheaded with
others as the National Anthem
was played at this service. The
traditional one minute of silence
then was observed at 11 a.m., the
hour at which World War One
ended 29 years ago.
Gen. Mark Clark, wartime Fifth
Army commander speaking at San
Francisco, coupled his plea for
preparedness with an assertion
that Communists "are making the
greatest efforts of all time to en-
slave the peoples of the world."
In a talk at Philadelphia, Secre-
tary of the Army Kenneth Royall
declared the United States must
adopt universal training because
the world is in a state "which we
cannot sensibly face without ade-
quate military force."
Secretary of the Navy John Sul-
livan said at Arlington Cemetery
"the price of peace will continue
to be preparedness" and added
that "in the months since V-J Day
we have pared" our military
strength "to but a shadow of its
former size."
Panel To Air
TIax Problems
Lt. Gov. Eugene C. Keyes will
present the problems of taxation
as they confront high state offi-
cials, in an AVC-sponsored panel
discussion on "Michigan's Tax Di-
lemma" at 8 p.m tomorrow in
Kellogg Auditorium.
Dr. Keyes will share the plat-
form with economics lecturer
George R. Anderson and Munici-
pal League head John A. Huss.
Anderson and Huss will broach
the problem from the viewpoints
of an authority on tax theory and
that of an expert on municipal
problems arising from state tax-
ation policies.
Lorne Cook, student of eco-
nomics and former chairman of
AVC's campus chapter, will be
moderator at the panel. The meet-
ing is open to the public.

port concerning atomic bombs. On
July 7 the paper said a new
American bomb had blown a
crater 2,700 feet deep and 11

Mexico. The U.S. Atomic Commis-

U.S. Opposes
Proposed UN
Action in Spain
LAKE SUCCESS, Nov. 11-(P)-
The United States opposed today
a demand by the Soviet bloc that
the United Nations take all pos-
sible economic action-short of
actual war-to force the fall of
the Franco regime in Spain.
Charles Fahy, American alter-
nate delegate, told -the 57-nation
political committee of the UN As-
sembly that the U.S. was against
any action 'which "would initiate
change by violence." He said in-
stead that the Spanish people "in
due time and in their own way"
will take steps to regain their
place in the family of nations.
Dr. Oscar Lange, Polish dele-
gate who originally laid charges
against Generalissimo Franco in
the Security Council in April, 1946
renewed the fight against Franco
by calling on the committee and
the Assembly-to apply a UN
charter provision for "complete
or partial interruption of eco-
nomic relations" with Spain.
He said there had been no
change for the better in the
Spanish case since the assembly
last Dec. 12 approved a resolu-
tion calling for member coun-
tries to take their ambassadors
out of Madrid and for the security
council to consider "adequate
measures" if a democratic gov-
ernment were not established in a
"reasonable" time.
