Europe Asks
19 Billions in
Aid from U.S.
Sixteen Nations Issue
Marshall-Plan Report
By The Associated Press
PARIS; Sept. 27-Sixteen Euro-
pean nations tonight released the
text of a 20,000-word Marshall-
Plan report declaring that the
continent's economy had been
blighted by World War II and ask-
ing $19,330,000,000 United States
aid in the next four years.
The text filled in some details
missing from 'a summary made
public last Monday, when dele-
gates from the western and south-
ern European countries signed the
report here at the close of a con-
ference of more than two months.
Sent to Truman
The report was issued also to-
night in Washington, where it has
been sent to be put before Presi-
dent Truman and Secretary of
State George C. Marshall.
Mr. Truman told reporters
Thursday he hoped it would not be
necessary to call a special session
of Congress, Which will meet next
in regular session in January.
Because of this, details of Eu-
rope's program caused little ex-
citement in official circles of Eu-
ropean capitals.
Lists Needs
The report listed needs of the
16 nations and western Germany
for food, fuel and productive goods
from 1948 through 1951 but did
not specify the requirements of in-
dividual countries nor indicate in
detail the sources of the desired
It requested U. S. dollars to help
buy thieth'iis'd bit' did hot say
now or when these dollars would
be repaid.
The document estimated the
countries involved would require
some $35,000,000,000 worth of
goods from North and South
American in the four years.
It contemplated that they could
pay through exports or other
means. It set out that the nations
were asking the International
Bank for Reconstruction and De-
velopment (world bank) for a loan.
Food Prices
Lower After
Record Highs
WASHINGTON, Sept. 27-()-
The price tags on major food
items were lower at many grocer-
ies and meat markets across the
country Saturday-after the pub-
lic got a quick taste of the record
high cost of eating and found it
Mtoo bitter.
A spot check of representative
cities from coast to coast disclosed
that fresh meats, buter or eggs or
all three items were down from
the record retail price peaks in
most sections.
In most places the retail prices
were only a few cents lower than
two weeks ago, but in some cities
the slashes were much sharper.
In Seattle, for example, pork at
75 cents a pound represented a
drop of 18 cents; in Denver butter
fell 13 cents to 79 cents a pound;

in "Washington, D. C., sireloin
steaks dropped from 93 to 79 cents
a pound and porterhouse steaks1
from 89 to 73; at Philadelphia
eggs dropped 10 cents a dozen, sell
ing at from 79 to 87 cents.
However, in a few cities, prices
were still climbing on some food.
Retailers, market analysts and
business research organizations
agreed that consumer resistance
was a major factor in the declines.
Refusal or many housewives to
buy the highest priced food items
at their stores caused a drop in
the wholesale price level which
is now reaching the retailer.
' Meanwhile some basic foods, in-

France May Merge Zone
With AmericansBritish
Integration Would Take Place After Meeting
Of Foreign Ministers' Council in November
By The Associated Press
LONDON, Sept. 27-French representatives tentatively have told
the United States and Britain that France will merge her zone of Ger-
many with their combined zones after the November meeting of the
Council of Foreign Ministers, authoritative diplomatic sources said
These sources, representing two of the governments concerned,
predicted that one of the first major sequels to this move would be
that the United States and Britain would back a French request, said

to be imminent, for the political

Jews Readied
For Cyprus
Some 470 Refnoved '
From Boarded Ship
JERUSALEM, Sept. 27-(W)-
Some 470 Jews were transferred
to transports for deportation to
Cyprus tonight after their immi-
gration ship "Despite" had been
boarded at sea by British sailors
in a fight in which one refugee
was slain by gunfire and nine
others injured.
The transfer to the transports,
carried out under the glare of
searchlights at Haifa's docks, was
made quietly, although one man
tried to leap overboard into the
water and was stopped by a ma-
The immigrant ship was a war-
time landing craft originally
named "Farida" but renamed
"Despite" by the Jews.
Resisted British
On _ of the refugees said the
ship had been at sea 12 days when
intercepted by four destroyers and
corvettes. He declared the passen-
gers resisted the naval boarding
party for about an hour until the
boarders opened fire.
A government announcement
said two Jews suffered gunshot
wounds and one British sailor a
broken finger in a 20-minute
battle. A government spokesman
said a British sailor who had
been "surrounded" by a party of
Jews brandishing crowbars" fired
the fatal shot.
It was the first refugee ship to
try to crack the British coastal
blockade since the interception in
July of the 4,500 Jews aboard the
Exodus 1947.
Cyprus Bound
Most of the Exodus Jews were
returned to Germany after they
refused to disembark at a port in
France-the country from which
they set sail for the Holy Land.
The British were making plans
to ship the Despite's passengers to
detention camps on Cyprus, where
the British already are holding
approximately 14,000 Jews who
tried to enter the Holy Land with-
out immigration certificates.
The 470 Jews were aboard a
converted LCT (Landing Craft
Tank) and it was believed the
crew intended to beacni the ves-
sel somewhere along the coast and
let the Jews make a dash for the

and economic incorporation of the
German Saar into France.
Spokesman Says 'Likely'
Asked to comment, a French
spokesman said in London that
the question of the economic in-
tegration of the Saar into France1
was "'likely" to come up before the
A British Foreign Office spokes-
man said Britain expected the is-
sue would be raised almost cer-
tainly during these sessions to be
held in London.
Britain, he added, would sup-
port "the political and economic
integration of the Saar with
France" on two conditions:
First, that reparattons due to
France from Germany be adjust-
ed in accordance with the value
of the area she would take over.
Second, that the final frontiers
of the Saar, after it has been ab-
sorbed into France, be subject to
agreed adjustments.
The Foreign Office spokesman
emphasized that Britain was not
in separate consultation with the
United States on the subject. But
diplomatic informants declared
they understood the United States
would "agree in principle."

Union Bosses
Plan Strikes
At Hamburg
Protest Dismantling
Of German Factories
By The Associated Press
BERLIN, Sept. 27-German
trade union leaders at Hamburg
declared today orders had been is-
sued throughout the British zone
for strikes as a form to open "re-
sistance" to British - American
plans for the dismantling of
large numbers of German factor-
ies for reparations.
Adolf Kummernus, chairman of
the Hamburg TraderUnion Con-
gress, said "No German worker
will be encouraged to lay hands
on any plants useful for peace
Essen Dispatches
Dispatches from Essen said ten-
sion prevailed throughout the in-
dustrial Ruhr as the result of un-
confirmed reports that there were
from 900 to 1,800 factories on the
American-British list for removel,
including German's entire ball-
bearing industry, virtually all the
so-called "peaceful" section of the
great Krupp works, and three
plants which manufacture much-
needed coal mining equipment.
Workers at the Holmag factory,
at Kiel, already have gone on
strike, Hamburg dispatches said,
as a result of reports the plant is
to be torn down. The factory
makes diesel marine engines and
Germans claimed its dismantling
would cripple the fishing industry.
Allied officials said the factory
could easily be converted to war
Clay Declaration
In Berlin, Gen. Lucius D. Clay,
American military governor, de-
clared the posting of the repara-
tions list of German factoiies
considered surplus to that level
would go ahead regardless of
whether Germans liked it.
"If German unions refuse to
obey orders they can hardly ex-
pect us to keep shipping in food
to feed them," he said.
Gen. Clay declared, however,
that although the list had been
drafted it had not been approved
by him and could not be consid-
ered final until approved by him
and the British military governor.
The German ballbearing in-
dustry, if dismantled, would force
Germany to import all her ball-
bearings henceforth and give the
Allies a double check against pos-
sible rearmament.

Teninga Spearheads Passing Game
With 30-Yard Heaves in Last Half
Fritz Crisler unveiled what well may be his greatest gridiron team
before 70,115 fans yesterday as his Michigan Wolverines rolled at will
over a badly outclassed Michigan State eleven, 55-0.
Although Crisler probably has had better first teams, it is doubt-
ful if he has ever had the talent-heavy depth he put on display yes-
terday. Michigan did everything that was expected of them-which
was plenty.
Their potential All-American, Bob Chappuis, showed he still
knows what to do with a football by scoring three touchdowns and
passing to another. His running mate, Bump Elliott turned in the best
run of the day ( a 56 yard sprint) and added a touchdown of his own



FOOTBALL VIA TELEVISION-A mountain of equipment sim-
ilar to this shown in Yankee Stadium in New York was needed
for the history making televising of yesterday's Michigan State-
Michigan football game.
Televising of State Contest
Termed "Unqualified Success'

A steaming canvas tent, a mile
of extension cord, a farmer's
windmill and plenty of nimble
fingers and brainwork combined
yesterday to make the first tele-
vising of a Michigan athletic
event in the history of the Uni-
versity an unqualified success.
With near perfect weather con-
ditions, owners of over 2,500 tele-
vision sets within a 60 mile rad-
ius of Detroit, including several
in Ann Arbor, saw Michigan wal-
lop Michigan State in their own
living rooms. "First reports from

Dawn Patrol
Almost before the sun came up
over the Michigan Stadium, tech-
nicians were hard at work unload-
ing and installing the whole ton of
equipment necessary for the
broadcast. Two huge cameras
were mounted on the top deck of
the press box and the radio booth
below them was fitted out for Paul
Williams, who did the play-by-
play description.
Of the twelve men needed to
handle the televising, only fivE
actually watched t h e playing

and the two cameramen. Two of

United States soldiers in Yugo-

turned to the Free Territory un-
scathed tonight, riding their own
horses and followed by their big
black mongrel mascot, Tiny. They
said they had been well treated.
The men were First Lt. William

their ground attack was the way
the Wolverines ruled the airways
the entire afternoon.
They completed 10 out of 14
passes for a total of 258 yards-12

they kept State from completing

of the ten the Spartans tried.

Fritz Crisler, ever wary of op-

day from his local neighbors.
Even before the promising Wol-
verine football squad scored its
smashing 55-0 triumph over Mich-

the University of Michigan Club
announced plans for a "Rose

portedly after Michigan travels to
Pasadena to the Rose Bowl fray.

attended the University, and all
who have been officially connect-

Bright Sk ies
Boost Sales
Past 70,000
Local Police Handle
Football Crush Easily
A bright sun beaming out of
fair skies boosted gate sales to
swell the final MSC-Michigan grid
clash attendance past the 70,000
Just before noon the football
throng started to pour into Ann
Arbor, more than doubling the
town's population for a few hours.
However clogged highways and
traffic jams are an old story to
the local police force, veterans of
many a gridiron weekend. Rein-
forced by sheriff's deputies and
scores of state troopers, local po-
lice officials reported little trouble
in handling the pigskin crowd.
No Accidents
No serious accidents were re-
ported although one of the re-
freshment stands near Stadium
gate 26 was partially destroyed
by fire just after the game start-
ed. Attendants said the fire
started in the cooking equipment
and was extinguished after sev-
eral minutes.
Fans were startled just before
the game hearing an emergency
call for plumbers issued over the
loudspeaker. However, investiga-
tion revealed that sewers in the
runway under the gridiron bowl
had backed up, blocking the pas-
sage. However the equipment was
restored to working order in a
matter of minutes.
Grid Sidelight
Another sidelight of yesterday's
grid contest was an Army non-
com from the local recruiting of-
fice demonstrating use of the war-
proved walkie-talkie hand radio
transmitter: The non -co fol-
lowed all plays on the sidelines,
relaying the latest information to
a fellow GI stationed outside the
Also back in their old stands
were scores of hucksters selling
everything from pennants and
programs to souvenir balloons.
The hot sun also aided the soft
drink stands who reported a land
office business. However, evidently
most of the football crowd con-
fined their imbibing to soft drinks
since local police reported little
traffic in inebriates.
