Britain Seeks Peace To
Rebuild a Weary Empire

LONDON, Nov. 21-(P)-War-
weary, care-beset Britain wants
peaceyand time to rebuild at home
and in her commonwealth, and in
that mood will seek a moderator's
role when the foreign ministers of
Britain, the United States, Russia
and France meet here Tuesday.
Britain's is not an attitude of
appeasement; it is not a philoso-
phy of "peace at any price," but
one rather which would tone down

rect traffic, others have special
duties like taking over meeting the
visiting team from the state po-
lice at the city limits, and escort-
ing it to the stadium. Escorts are
also provided for the Wolverine
team and the band. Outside the
stadium, detectives are busy
watching for scalpers and pick-
pockets, and patrolmen keep order
at the gates.
Complete Lock-up
Inside, officers watch over the
benches and sidelines as well as
the dressing rooms. There is a
complete "lock-up"' under the
stands for unruly and "over-en-
thusiastic" fans.
An officer is stationed at the
head of each aisle, and these jobs
are rotated so that a good share of
the 110 men are able to see at
least half of the game.
Many of them never see the
game at all, though. They are
either patoling the parked cars
to watch for looters, or walking
regular beats. "Contrary to popu-
lar opinion, the city of Ann Arbor
is not dead during the game," says
Capt. Gainsley. "That's when
many people like to shop in peace
and quiet."
"The police. have very little
trouble with fans or students at
the games, according to the Cap-
tain. He did note that there doesn't
seem to be as much noise as there
used' to be. "I think student spirit
has fallen off, due mainly to the
veterans," he said.
Little Theatre'
Discloses Cast
The cast for the Pulitzer Prize
winning play "They Knew What
They Wanted," by Sidney Howard,
has been announced by the Little
Theatre of Willow Village.
The cast will include A. Michael
Cetta, Ben Dziengielewski, Thelma
Bogart, Jack Hess, Robert John-
son, David Vance, and Hank Vilas.
The play will be presented in
the West Lodge auditorium Jan.
9, 10, and 11.
The following officers were
elected by the theatre group at
their last meeting: Donald Decker,
chairman; William Swisher, treas-
urer; Marion Emerson, secretary.
Elected to the executive board
were: Donald Decker, Michael
Cetta, and Marion Emerson.

the angry exchanges between the
East and the West.
Seeks Middle Road
She takes account of her close
ties with the United States. But,
-onscious of the common Euro-
ean identity she shares with Rus-
:ia, she seeks to stake her tonior-
rows on a course somewhere be-
tween the extremes.
No soft-tongued statesman by
1hoice or by training, burly Ern-
ast Bevin expressed what most
3ritons hope when he called upon
his fellow foreign ministers recent-
ly to curb their "slinging matches"
and get down to the "basic facts
of Europe."
What Britain Wants
He has made it plain what
Great Britain wants. Basically it
is a unified Germany, an inde-
pendent Austria and an economi-
cally-solvent Europe.
A unified Germany would cut
down the economic drain on Great
Britain in terms of money, man-
power and material. She needs all
these things at home.
Needs Solvent Europe
A strong and independent Aus-
tria would decrease the danger of
a new German-Austrian alliance
with war-making potentials.
A solvent Europe is essential to
Great Britain, which is dependent
primarily upon a re-export trade.
But what happens if the Council
fails to agree on the future of Ger-
many and Austria? If the rift
widens? If Germany remains di-
vided and, with that division, Eu-
rope remains divided economical-
ly and ideologically?
Probable Position
Officially, Great Britain has re-
fused to acknowledge plans of her
own based upon such a possibil-
ity. But, step by step in recent
months, she has demonstrated the
path she will pursue if it occurs.
Primarily, it would be based
upon stiengthening that part of
Germany under control of the
Western Powers, as evidenced by
the recent agreements to stimulate
coal production and to raise the
level of industry in western Ger-
Upon Bevin will fall the task of
presenting the British case.
At a recent ambassadorial re-
ception, while talking to diplomats,
politicians and reporters, he
wagged his finger solemnly and
"My job is the toughest any for-
eign secretary in Britain has had
for a thousand years."
Disarmament Program
Bevin recognizes, his friends say,
that national policies in Germany
can no longer be restrained if the
Council fails to agree this time.
In some aspects of these talks,
common to each of the Big Four,
this country has had the coopera-
tion of her three partners, but in
others only the United States has
seen eye to eye with her.
British administrators regard
the process of disarming their zone
of Germany as having been com-
pleted successfully. Still to be
completed, though, is a joint
American -British program for
dismantling the industrial plant
considered surplus to the peaceful
needs of their part of Germany.

Prof. Haber Is
Nominated to
defense Post
Prof. William Haber of the eco-
nomics department, who served as
Director of Planning for the War
Manpower Commission during the

possibilities of a civilian draft.
The Army and Navy Munitions
Board War Manpower Consulting
Group, as the board is called, will
meet twice monthly in Washing-

Human Bone
Aids Cripples
Spare Parts Kept
On .ce in Banks
By The Associated Press
Bone banks preserving human
bone are being used successfully
to aid the crippled, the injured,
and victims of some diseases.
They are the latest such savings
accounts of human spare parts,
joining eye banks, skin banks,
blood banks, and plasma banks.
The bone banks use deep freeze
refrigeration to keep the material t
fresh and ready for use.
The pioneering work at two Ne-r
York hospitals has just been dis-
closed after more than 125 opera-
tions. Some of these used bone
preserved as long as three months.
Dr. Wilson reported 60 success-
ful transplants, and Dr. Leonard
F. Bush of the New York Ortho-
pedic Hospital said excellent re-
suits were obtained in 67 opera-
tions there. These two hospitals
began the banks simultaneously
about a year and a half ago.
Pieces of healthy bone obtained
in operations or from amputations
are placed immediately in sealed,
sterile jars, and stored in a re-
frigerator at temperatures of 10 to
20 degrees below zero fahrenheit..
Advantages of the bone bank,
the surgeons said, are that it
avoids the time, pain, and shock of
supplemental operations to take
bone from the leg or hip of a pa-
tient for grafting elsewhere. It also
avoids weakening and possible
fracture of the area from which
bone is borrowed.
