Gen. Bradley
Follows 'Ike'
As Staff Chief
Railroad Man To
Take Over VA
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 21-Four-
star Gen. Omar Bradley was chos-
en today to succeed Gen. Dwight
D. Eisenhower as Army Chief of
Staff, and Carl R. Gray, Jr., a
railroad executive, was named to
follow Bradley as Veterans Ad-
Bradley's appointment as chief
of staff had been anticipated ever
since Eisenhower announced his
forthcoming retirement from mil-
itary life to accept the presidency
of Columbia University. But the
selection of Gray to supervise vet-
erans' affairs was a surprise to
official Washington.
Three other shifts in the high
executive posts were announced
by President Truman at his news
1. Robert Littlejohn is resigning
as War Assets Administrator ef-
fective Nov. 28. His deputy, Jess
Larson, will take over the job,
pointing toward liquidation of
WAA, except its real estate, by
next June.
2. Maj. Gen. Clifton B. Gates
was appointed commandant of the
marine corps, succeeding Gen.
Alexander A. Vandegrift, who is
3. Dillon S. Myer resigned as
commissioner of the U.S. Housing
Authority, in the expectation of
taking another government posi-
tion. Mr. Truman said Myer has
not said what job he wants.
The President said that he him-
self does not know when Eisen-
hower plans to step out as chief
of staff. Maj. Gen. Floyd L. Parks,
army public relations chief, told
reporters that Eisenhower's plans
are "very indefinite" but that he
probably will begin his terminal
leave "around the latter part of
February." He made the an-
nouncement after talking by tele-
phone with the five-star general,
who is in Walter Reed hospital
for a routine check-up.
Vets' Insurance
Dividends May
Be Wiped Out
Dividends scheduled to be paid
eventually on 19 million war vet-
erans' life insurance policies could
be wiped out if a U. S. court ruling
in Chicago last June is upheld by
the Supreme Court, according to
an Associated Press report.
Full Face Value
In its ruling, the U. S. Circuit
Court of Appeals at Chicago held
the beneficiary of a veteran's Na-
tional Service Life Insurance pol-
icy must receive the full face value
of his policy, plus interest, every
ten years. s
Commenting on the decision
which is to be reviewed by the Su-
preme Court, H. W. Breining, Vet-
erans Administration insurance
chief, warned that it could elimi-
nate the surplus from which divi-
dends are to be paid.
Declared Surplus
The National Service Life In-
surance fund, derived from pol-
icy-holder premium payments and
interest on investments which now

totals 7 billion dollars is used to
pay insurance claims. A part of it
eventually is to be declared sur-
plus and be paid back to veterans
in dividends. Unofficial estimates
of the portion of the fund which
may be declared surplus have
ranged from 3 to 50 per cent.
The $1,700,000,000 which Fed-
eral attorneys believe this decision
will add in payments to beneficiar-
ies, would make it impossible to
pay veterans dividends on their
policies and simultaneously main-I
tain a fund sufficiently large to
pay off death claims, VA officials

Blum Nomination Vetoed
By French Parliament
President Auriol Believed To Have Offered
Schuman Position as New Cabinet Head
By The Associated Press
PARIS, Saturday, Nov. 22-Leon Blum, nominated for Premier
of a new French government, failed to win National Assembly approval
last night, and early today it was reported that President Vincent
Auriol had offered the post to Robert Schuman.
Auriol, a Socialist, was said to be awaiting a reply from Schuman,
who is 60, a member of the middle-of-the-road Popular Republican
movement (MRP) and a former finance minister. He called the Lux-
embourg-born Lorrainer to the presidential Elysee Palace at 2:30 a.m.
(8:30 p.m. Friday, Eastern Standard Time).
Blum, 75-year-old Socialist, had been nominated by the Presi-
dent Thursday night to succeed
Premier Paul Ramadier, also a
Socialist, who resigned Wednes-
C day night.
To take office, he needed 309
votes in the assembly -one vote
s more than half the total. He got
r300 votes to 277 against him.

Today they're writing the last chapter of the 1947 edition of
"Fritz Crisler's Amazing Wolverines," a sort of 'in memoriam' to Ohio
State, leaving a few blank pages in the back of the book to be filled
in with a Rose Bowl epilogue.
Usually one of the top spots on Michigan's schedule, the Buck-

New Plan for
Palestine Goes
To Assembly
U.S., Russia Agree,
Wait British Approval
LAKE SUCCESS, Nov. 21-(/P)-
A modified plan for partitioning
Palestine, designed principally to,
meet objections raised by Britain,
was agreed upon tonight by a
United Nations subcommittee.
The United States and Russian
delegates on the subcommittee no-
tified delegates that their govern-
ments had agreed to the modifica-
tions. A British delegate said that{
the new version of the partition
plan would be sent to his govern-
ment and that he iad no com-
ment now on its attitude.
The revised plan, which still
carries the essential plan for cut-
ting Palestine into Jewish and
Arab states, will go to the full 57-
member Palestine committee of
the United Nations Assembly to-
morrow at 10:30 a.m. E.S.T. for

cleared up the remaining few

Work of City Police Praised
In Clearing Football Traffic

That small army of policemen
who blanket Ann Arbor each Sat-
urday don't wear the magician's
long black cape, but they still
manage to shake 20,000 cars out of
the city in less than an hour and
a half on football Saturdays.
,This in itself seems like quite a
trick, but it's only one of many
chores which keep the local boys
in blue on the go from dawn to
dusk, according to police Captain
Rolland J. Gainsley.
"Three Shifts"
"Football days are the only time
in the whole year we have all three
shifts on duty," he said.
Altogether, there are 110 city
police, state police, and deputy
sheriffs on duty when the armada
of autos invades Ann Arbor.
The traffic flow is handled by
an intricate plan worked out by
Capt. Gainsley in cooperation with
traffic heads of other agencies.
The control plan, which has
been successfully used for three
years, utilizes squad cars, motor-
cycles and traffic patrolmen, all
controlled by an elaborate radio
hook-up involving two stations.
Noted Actress
Stage Is Topic for
Chatterton Speech
Ruth Chatterton, stage and
screen star, will present the fourth
Oratorical Association lecture at
8:30 p.m. Tuesday in Hill Audi-
One of the first 'glamorous" ac-
tresses to consent to play charac-
ter parts in movies, Miss Chatter-
ton enacted such famous roles as
'Madame X."
The legitimate stage, however, is
Miss Chatterton's first love, and it
will be her experiences on the
stage that will be included in her
lecture Tuesday. In addition, she
will give some dramatic readings
from her favorite plays.
Tickets may be purchased from
10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 to 5 p.m.
Monday, and from 10 a.m. to 1
p.m. and 2 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday at
the Hill Auditorium box office. Pa-
trons may use the ticket issued
for the Jane Cowl lecture.

The efficiency of the plan is prov-
en by the fact that twice Ann Ar-
bor's population is channelled out
of the city within an hour and a
half of the game's end.
Busy Workers
The Ann Arbor police are on
duty long before game time, how-
ever. They are out in the wee
hours of the dawn posting "no

around the stadium.

SL Petitions
Now Available
To Candidates
Students who plan to run for
positions on the Student Legisla-
ture in the all-campus elections
Dec. 10, may obtain candidate pe-
titions after noon today at the Of-
fice of Student Affairs, Dick Kelly,
Legislature elections committee
chairman has announced.
Petitions, as well as a 50 word'
statment of qualifications, show-
ing seriousness of purpose, must
be returned to the office by Dec. 3,
Kelly said.
New Set-up
Under the new elections set-up,
recently approved by the Legisla-
ture, prospective candidates must
obtain 150 student signatures on
the standard forms provided.
No petitions may be circulated
in classes, study rooms and li-
braries and, in any case, may be
circulated only by the student
seeking nomination.
Each student obtaining a peti-
tion must post a $5 bond, to be
forfeited in the event of petition
or election discrepancies, or if the
candidate receives fewer than 25
first place votes in the elections.

Speaking opportunities from the
library steps, at set hours, will be
made available to candidates. The
campaign talks, however, are not
Other election rules included in
the newly revamped elections sys-
tem are the prohibition of cam-
paigning within 50 feet of the
polls, and of campaign posters on
campus or in campus buildings.

According to those in the know,
the Buckeyes have about as much
chance of winning this afternoon
as Joe Stalin has of running on
the Republican ticket in next
year's Presidential election. Point
spots along the Betting Boulevards
of the country ,'are running all
the way from 28 to 50 points.
Reasons for the installation
of Michigan as a prohibitive
favorite are two-fold. First of
all, the awesome grid machine
Mr. Crisler has whipped togeth-,
er this year is considered the
greatest since the point-a-min-
ute days of Fielding Yost; and
secondly, Ohio State is on the
last lap of one of its worst sea-
sons in history.
The Buckeyes have won only
two ball games this year and one
was the disputed affair with
Northwestern which the boys from
Columbus won four minutes after
the game had ended. Michigan on.
the other hand is riding a 13 game
win streak which is carrying it on
its first perfect season since 1932.
Then, too, the boys who play
around with football psychol-
ogy point out that the Wolver-
ines have multi-multi personal
incentives for really pouring it
on to Wes Fesler's boys from
south of the Michigan border.
There's Jim Brieske who needs
six more points to break the mod-
ern conversion record of 47 held
by Dick Walterhouse of Army and
George Jernigan of Georgia.
There's Bump Elliott who could
wind up the season as the Big Nine
scoring champ if a couple of T.D.
chances come his way. The Bump-
er is currently tied with North-

Light Showers
May Dampen
Sell-out Crowd
Ohio State Rooters
To Number_10,000
Light showers predicted for this
afternoon may dampen the enthu-
siasm of 85,938 gridiron fans who
will fill Michigan stadium to ca-
pacity for the final home appear-
ance of the Wolvrines.
The weatherman says that rain
will start early this morning but
he predicts only light, intermit-
tent showers by game time.
The third sell-out thron)g of the
season will include 10,000 Ohio
State fans. A special football spe-
cial arriving between 12 and 1
p.m. today will bring 500 Buck-
eye rooters from the Columbus
campus while thousands more are
expected to utilize a newly con-
structed section of Route 23 to
motor here.
Several specials are also slated
to bring Detroit fans from the Mo-
tor City to view the Rose Bowl
bound Wolverines.
The longest trek of the week-
end was made by Henry George,
his son, John, and their wives,
who traveled from Spokane,
Wash., to view the grid clash. Both
men are University alumni.
Also in the stands today will be
a number of Michigan State grid-
ders. The MSC 11 has an off-
weekend, and a number of the
players and coaches will make the
trip to Ann Arbor to view the Wol-
verine-Buckeye clash
For the second time this year
the visiting team is bringing its

State marching band will open the
pre-game routine and share the
