Ruthven Asks Specialist'UT

Says Combat
Men Are Not
Only Defense
Cooperation Between
School, Army Urged
President Alexander G. Ruthven
yesterday urged provision for the
training of adequate numbers of
highly skilled specialists in the
Universal Military Training bill
now pending before Congress.
In an interview with the De-
troit Times, Dr. Ruthven said that
"the important issue is no longer
whether we should have compul-
sory military training. A realistic
view of world affairs makes the
necessity clear. The issue is what
kind of plan we should adopt and
Dr. Ruthven told The Daily that
he is "opposed to any form of
UMT that would interfere with
the plans of young men and wom-
en to get the education they are,
best fitted for."
-Adequate Defense
Declaring in the interview that
the traditional training of vast
numbers of infantrymen and com-
bat troops could not give the U.S.
an adequate defense system, Dr.
Ruthven said that complementary
training of experts in every field
of advanced study will be neces-
He listed the physical sciences,
,nedicine, psychiatry, military en-
gineering and radio electronics as
essential to national prepared-
"But these are not all. Demands
for language experts, educational
'program administrators, journal-
ists and others trained in the lib
eral tradition must be anticipat-
ed," he said.
Recognize Needs
Dr. Ruthven said that "we must
recognize the needs of the time.
If the Universal Military Training
bill in its final form includes con-
sideration of the imperative need
for the training of these special-
ists, I will gladly support it.
"Our experiences during the re-
cent conflict leave no doubt about
this need. Universities and col-
leges were drained dry of their
top-flight men in every field by
the demands of the military. Pro-
per training of new personnel in
these fields became most diffi-
cult," he added.
'Foot Sloggers'
"We cannot be 'prepared' in the
true sense of the word we sim-
ply produce the old-type foot-
sloggers and ignore the demands
of modern warfare."
Dr. Ruthven suggested that
plans for close cooperation with
universities and colleges be draft-
ed by military authorities in or-
der to assure the armed forces an
adequate corps of specialists in
the event of another conflict.

French objections to the latest

'Inside Russia'
To Be Shown
Bryan Will Appear
Before Lecture Group
The only complete color filn
ever made in Russia will be shown
to Ann Arbor when Julien Bryan
appears in the 1947-48 Oratori-
cal Association lecture course at
8:30 p.m. Tuesday in Hill Audi-
Bryan made the film, "Inside
Russia Today," on his ninth trip
to the Soviet shortly after the
war. The pictures, which were not
developed until he returned to
America, were not censored by
the Russians.
Included in the film are shots
of Minsk, Kiev, Odessa, Moscow
and some of the noted collective
farms, as well as schools, churches
and other institutions.
Although on his many other
picture taking expeditions, Bryan
has always had assistants, he was
entirely alone on the Russian
filming. From the thousands of
feet he filmed there, he edited his
present movie of the most import-
ant scenes.
Tickets for the lecture will go
on sale tomorrow at the Hill Aud-
itorium Box Office.

JERUSALEM, Jan. 10- The
Jewish Militia Hagana reported
without confirmation tonight that
Arabs again had invaded North-
eastern Palestine from Syria to-
day .and the government said 20
persons had been killed in the
south in a three-cornered battle
of Jews, Arabs and British.
Hagana said several hundred
Arabs had crossed the northern
border near the village of Tel El
Kadi in the same general vicinity
as the first invasion from Syria'
yesterday. They were beaten back
in a Hagana ambush in which
one person was killed and at least
one wounded, the organization

(P-The Jewish Agency for Pales-

near Asbury Park Thursday were
"legally procured" and were
awaiting "legitimate shipment" to
Palestine when discovered.
Meanwhile the last of a 199-
ton consignment of war surplus
explosives which police said were
earmarked for the Jewish forces
in the Holy Land, was accounted
for at the Army's Seneca Ord-
nance Depot at Romulus, N.Y.
The Jewish Agency statement,
issued in New York, said "the

the lives and homes of the 700,-

"The UN decision (tonpartition
the Holy Land) made no provi-
sions for an international force,
but did provide for a Jewish mili-

to maintain public security. It
therefore devolved upon the re-

Jewish community of Palestine to
rush preparations in a race
against time in view of the threat-

of the UN decision and the an-

Few Students
Get Diplomas
Although almost 1,500 students
will graduate from the University
at the close of the present semes-
ter, only 40 of them will receive
diplomas in the traditional man-
ner, according to Dr. Frank E.
Robbins, assistant president.
The honored graduates will be
members of the last war acceler-
ated class from the dental school,
and of the entire University. Pres-
ident Alexander G. Ruthven will
present diplomas to the senior
dental students at a luncheon to
be held Jan. 31 at the League.
Other graduates will receive
their diplomas by mail a short
time after the end of the semester,

ing the day. The army repelled
yesterday's foray.
The deadly battle in the South
took place in orange groves near
Gaza on the coastal plain.
Arabs of Isdud, north of Gaza,
and Jews of the Yavna settle-
ment clashed. Troops of the Roy-I
al Sussex Regiment and police
rushed in to restore order, put the
battle lasted for several hours.
Twelve of the dead were Jews and
eight were Airabs. There were no
British casualties.
Arab Seige
An Arab force, estimated by
police to number 100 men, also
laid seige to the Jewish settle-
ment of Ramat Rachel on the
outskirts of Jerusalem near the
residence of Gen. Sir Alan Cun-
ningham, the Palestine High
Commissioner. A British police
officer in that area was injured.
In the sniping which preceded
the siege Maj. Nicholas Androni-
vitch, military attache of the
United States Consul General,
narrowly escaped injury when his
horse was shot from under him
while he was riding on a bridle
path nearby. The major's horse
was hit twice by high powered
rifle bullets.
Firing Continues
The British said military armed
cars had been sent to Ramat Ra-
chel, a tiny Jewish cooperative
community with a population of
365. Firing continued there to-
night, however, and soldiers were
sending up flares to illuminate
the scene.

Aid Program
WASHINGTON, Jan. 10-(R)-
The State Department agreed to-
day, at senatorial requests, to cal-
culate how much of the European
aid program will be spent for 're-
lief' and how much for "recovery."
The Department's spokesman,
Ambassador Lewis Douglas, also
agreed with a senator's estimate
that the United States may re-
cover up to $2,800,000,000 in loan
repayments out of the $6,800,-
000,000 which President Truman
and Secretary of State Marshall
asked to finance the first 15
months operation of the program.
Douglas, Ambassador to Great
Britain, told the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee it is "al-
most impossible to segregate" the
relief and recovery phases of the
program. Nevertheless he pro-
mnised chairman Vande nberg he
would supply a breakdown rome-
time next week.
The State Department witness
tol dthe Senators that some of the
16 nations would receive "almost
nothing" under a staight relief
Demands for the breakdown be-
tween relief and recovery, "cou-
try by country," came first toda-,
from Senator Hickenlooper (R-
Iowa). He said such a segregation
of "relief, raw materials and cap-
ital goods" would prove a very
helpful yardstick" both for the
Congress and for the administra-
tion of the program.

Scoring Honors
Michigan's cagers served no-
tice to the Big Nine basketball
powers that they are ready to put
in their bid for the Conference
title, by edging Minnesota, 43-41,
last night at Yost Field House.
For the last two minutes of
play, the 8,000 screaming spec-
tators were on their feet constant-
ly as Michigan defended their
slim margin.
With the score 42-38, Minnesota
elected to take the ball out-of-
bounds to try for a two-pointer
rather than attempt a free throw.
Center Don MacIntosh blocked
the ball on the throw-in and fiery
guard Pete Elliott scooped it off
the floor.
Close Scare
High scoring pivot man, Jim
McIntyre, was awarded two
charity tosses, and after making
the first one good, the Gophets
took the ball on the sidelines a-

liott took the ball out-of-bounds
and the Wolverines continued to

In this last minute, Michigan
players were fouled five times, and
each time they elected to play
the ball from the sidelines.
To six-foot-six inch Bill Rob-
erts must go a great share of the
credit for the Michigan win. A-
