By The Ass
SEOUL, Korea, Sept. 26-The
Russians suddenly proposed today
that they and the Americans si-
multaneously withdraw their mil-
itary forces from Korea at the
beginning of the year and leave
the Koreans to form their own
government, since the two oc-
cupying powers have been unable
to agree on a unified regime.
U.S. authorities had no imme-
diate official, comment, but some
highly placed Americans quickly
speculated that the Russian ma-
neuver was designed to keep the
Korean issue from coming before
the United Nations and might also
signify that the Soviets now re-
garded their North Korean pup-
pets as ready to try to install a
Communist government for the
whole country.
In Washington American diplo-
matic authorities viewed the So-
viet" withdraway proposal as a
propaganda attempt to influence
the issue before the U.N.
Secretary Marshall submitted
the case to the U.N. Assembly
recently after the American-So-
viet Joint Commission on Korea
was unable in nearly two years
of joint discussions to agree even
on how to go about arranging a
unified Korean government.

LAKE SUCCESS, Sept. 26-(P)
-Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister
Andrei Vishinsky today drove
closer to President Truman and
Secretary of State Marshall with
hiss"warmonger" campaign againt
many other American leaders,
newspapers and institutions.
At the same time he took note
of reports that Mrs. Franklin D.
Roosevelt had been put up by
Secretary of State Marshall to
challenge the Vishinsky assertions
when he seeks committee action on
Sthem in the United Nations.
The Russian told a news confer-
ence he had heard "they are get-
ting ready another member of the
American delegation" to reply to
him, and he added, grinning, "We
shall wait and see."
At the 2%/2-hour news confer-
ence, which he himself called,
Vishinsky both renewed and ex-
panded his accusations of a vast
k atomic war plot in this country
aimed at Russia.
Twice he sidestepped oppor-
tunities to disavow a Russiani
press contention that President
Truman is after the "laurels of
Hitler" and he let the impression
stand among several hundred re-
porters that he did not, in fact,

Ken Bissell, manager, said that

This reduction will simplify the

Britain declared today she is will-
ing to end her Palestine mandate
rule. The British at the same
time envisioned an early with-
drawal of their forces from the
strife-torn Holy Land unless the
United Nations Assembly finds a
solution acceptable to Jews and
Arabs alike.
Fiery, grey-haired Andrei Y.

statement on Palestine with the
comment that he was "afraid" it
meant the "ultimate withdrawal
that was the case the Soviet reac-

The British proposal came

Palestine, killing four British

Bags containing $420,000 of the
total haul of $600,000 were
dropped in the subsequent chase;.
Two of the gang were believed

CHICAGO, Sept. 26-( )-Bill
Odom will take off "about the
23rd of November" on a third
global hop, this time by the North
and South poles, the flier's fi-
nancial backer, Milton Reynolds,
announced today.
Odom set a record in August by
flying around the world in slightly
more than 72 hours. The record
flight was a solo hop. Last April
Reynolds accompanied Odom on

flight manager for the two previ-
ous round-the-world trips, said
a surplus, four-engined B-32
bomber will be converted into a
new "Bombshell" for Odom's polar
hop. The "Bombshell" used on the
two pervious flights was a con-
verted, two-engined A-26 bomber.
It has since been sold.
Ford Workers
Get Wage Hike
DETROIT, Sept. 26-(P)-The
Ford Motor Co. prepared today to
inaugurate an 11%i, cent an hour
wage boost plus six paid annual
holidays for 107,000 CIO produc-
tion employes who rejected a
$200,000,000 pension plan.
"We accept their decision," a
Ford spokesman announced after
CIO United Auto Workers offi-
cials conceded that the pension
plan was defeated by a vote of the

skills to thousands of football fans
at every game.
With a membership increase of
26 new members, bringing the
total to 131, the band will feature
"l'Wanna Go Back to Michigan"
at the season's opener today with
Michigan State. Michigan State's
Alma Mater, "Close Beside the
Winding Cedar," will also be play-
ed by the band under the direc-
tion of Prof. William D. Revelli,
together with "Varsity" and "The
Victors." Today's program will
conclude with the playing of the
traditional "Yellow and Blue" in
/block "M" formation. Other
special formations will be featur-
ed in the band's accompaniment
to familiar yells.
Unprecedented interest in the
band has been indicated in the
230 applications submitted by
former high school bandsmen and
other musicians on campus. Har-
old Ferguson, assistant conductor
and drillmaster of the bands, has
announced that interested stu-
dents may still sign up at Harris
"Although there has been a
tremendous turnover since last
year, this year's band has promise
of becoming one of the best
marching bands Michigan has had
in several years," Ferguson said.

And we have all the fun
In the friendly rivalry of col-

Will Receive
New TB Guard
Health Service, Is
Sponsoring Test Plan
Medical students now will re-
ceive the most thorough protec-
tion against tuberculosis in the
history of the University Medical
School under the new, unprece-
dented testing program jointly
sponsored by the Galens honorary
medical society and Health Serv-
The program is being adopted to
combat cases of TB which have
frequently struck down medical
students during their training. Al-
most every year medical students
and internes become victims of
the disease.
Under the new program, stu-
dents will receive tuberculin tests
for the early detection of tuber-
culosis, in addition to the "annual
X-rays. Records of each student
will be kept during his entire time
in the Medical School and is pos-
sible during his interneship.
Will Combat TB
The program is designed to find
in what year the student reaction
to the tuberculin test changes
from a negative to a positive one,
the positive reaction indicating
contact with tuberculosis and the
building up of a slight immunity.
If the X-rays show any sus-
picious lesions, the student will be
sent to Health Service. In this
way, by tracking down tubercu-
losis, it is hoped that the high
percentage will be eliminated,"
according to Dr. Richard Bates,
tuberculosis control officer at
University Hospital.
Nothing New
This method of early detection
of tuberculosis is nothing new in
medical schools all over the coun-
try, Dr. Bates said. The financial
help by the Galens Society, the
furnishing of testing materials by
the United States Public Health
Service and the contribution by
Health Service have served to in-
troduce to the University this pro-
gram which has been successful,
elsewhere, he said.
Tubersulin tests will be given to
seniors and juniors Monday and
will be continued throughout the
week. Sophomores and freshmen!
will receive the tests during the
following week of Oct. 5.

Several questions should be
answered before the anticipated
crowd of 65,000 files it's way out
the exits.
(1) Is this the year of yearsr
for the Crisler regime at the Uni-
versity of Michigan?
(2) Is a new era in football
about to start for MSC under the
Crisler-tutored coaching combine
now running things out East
Lansing way?
(3) .Is Fritz mad at Biggie?
Is Biggie mad at Fritz? Or is
the ticket office just trying to

(4) Will one Mr. Robert Chap-c
pius be able to repeat his football
feats of last year and is he All-F
American timber.
(5) What happens when you
throw two ball clubs, one of
known and the other of unknown
quality, using the same systems,
onto a football field?
Most of these questions havej
already been answered by the
sport "experts" in this part of
the country but it will remain
for this afternoon to bear them
Spartan supporters aren't say-
ing much, but they feel confident
that underdog State team will
make a game of it. A close final
score would go a long way towards1
giving Munn a good send-off in
his new job. Nor would .it hurt
the caching prestige of Forest (I
Blocked for Harmon) Evashevskia
who handles the Green and White
backfield; nor end coach Kip Tay-
lor -who scored the first touch-
down ever made in Michigan
Stadium for the 1927 Wolverines.
The rumored "fuedin' and fight-
in" stories about Mr. C and Mr.
M seem to have originated with
the idea of stirring up interest
in the game. Biggie did take a
pretty vicious swing at the Big
Nine bigwigs last spring but it
seems unlikely that Fritz will go
all out to run up a big score
against his protege.

the trip.
Transportation officials have
mobilized all extra equipment to
handle the gridiron throng which
will more than double Ann Ar-
bor's population for a few hours.
Greyhound officials report that
every available bus will be pressed
into service to bring sports en-
