World Series
Opening Game
YORK, Sept. 30 - The greatest
World Series crowd ever-73,365
paid-packed Yankee Stadium to-
day to see the New York Yankees
win the opener of the 1947 classic
from Brooklyn, 5 to 3, when the
Dodgers' 21-year-old pitching
prodigy, Ralph Branca, blew sky
high in a fateful fifth inning.
The favored Yankees poured all
their runs across in the one wild,
ragged frame in which they more
than batted around on three hits,
three walks and a hit batsman.
Branca, the 21-game winner, de-
F parted in the midst of the holo-
caust. Except for the single erup-
tion, the winners got only one oth-
er man on base; on a single by
Phil Rizzuto in the seventh.
Seldom has a World Series
game gone up the spout more
quickly. After an hour's play in
chill, windy weather the Dodgers
were out in front 1-0, and appar-
ently winging. The tall Branca,
his fast ball whistling and his
curve cracking, had set the first
dozen Yanks down in order, strik-
ing out five of them.
Twenty-one minutes later the
worst had happened to the Na-
tional Leaguers and the game was

gone beyond recall. Manager Burt
Shotton's boys hustled up a couple
more runs later on off Joe Page,
the second Yank hurler, but they
never had a chance of catching up.
Frank Shea, brilliant Yankee
freshman pitcher, received credit
for the victory after being lifted
for a pinch-hitter in the big fifth.

Michigan chapter of the Student
Federalists, student branch of
United World Federalists who are
bringing the M.P. to Detroit for
a talk Friday, Oct. 3.
Meanwhile, possible implica-

alded the announcement on cam-
pus of the laborite's scheduled
speech. Federalists reported yes-
terday that a huge sign which
they had placed on the Diag-
onal early in the morning had
been mysteriously slashed.
No Suspects
The sign was eight feet high,
containing the two letters M.P.
and a brief legend below them an-
nouncing the speaker and his sub-
ject. Federalists had no idea of
the identity of any possible van-
dals. They declared that Univer-
sity groundsmen had temporarily
removed the sign, but had re-
placed it.
"We sincerely hope this isn't
a sign of political intolerance,"
George Shepherd, president of the
Michigan Federalists,bcommented
yesterday. "Ann Arbor is very
lucky to have a man like Mr.
Usborne here to speak on such
a vital subject. We hope that
everyone will have respect for

If Conservation Program Lags;


Barred From Russia


Refuse Visas
To Members
Soviets Charge
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Sept. 30 -
Touring American senators were
barred from Russia today, with
the official Soviet explanation
that the U.S.S.R. cannot "be made
the subject of an investigation" by
American legislators.
Senator Bridges, chairman of
the Senate Appropriations Com-
mittee, said Russia had refused to
permit committee members to en-
ter the country-even to inspect
the U.S. Embassy in Moscow.
Three House members met a
similar refusal last July, but at
that time the Russians gave the
explanation that "lack of hotel
accommodations and some other
shortages caused by the war" pre-
vented the granting of visas.
Red Statement
Bridgeshsaid individual mem-
bers of the committee which he
.heads had asked for visas to enter
Russia while on a European in-
spection trip.
He said the Russian Foreign
Ministry gave this reply through
the state department:
"Inasmuch as the U.S.S.R. is
not considered a country that
could be made the subject of an
investigation on the part of the
visiting senators, we do not con-
sider their trip to be suitable."
Bridges commented the reply
was given "in disregard of the fact
that the requests for visas specifi-
cally stated the object of the trip
was to inspect operations, U.S.
embassy in Moscow.'"
Second Request
The chairman said U.S. Ambas-
sador Walter Bedell Smith made
a second request to the Russian
Foreign Office, emphasizing that
the touring senators would exam-
ine only the U.S. Embassy opera-
tions. This brought forth a sec-
ond refusal, he said.

new students on campus, Provost
Adams will emphasize the oppor-
tunities outside one's specialized
field which this campus offers to
the student.
The second program of the
series will be held Oct. 16 when
Dean Ralph A. Sawyer of the
Graduate school will present his
illustrated lecture "Bikini-Cross-
roads!" Dean Sawyer was civilian
technical director of the Bikini
Atom Bomb Test.
Although the series is planned
primarily for new students, any
student on campus may attend
the Hill Auditorium assemblies.
New students will find the sched-
ule of meetings listed on the
small yellow card issued to them
during Orientation Week.

Complete plans for the sponsor-
ship of a special train that will
carry 1000 students to Champaign
for the Michigan-Illinois game
Nov. 1 were announced yesterday
by the Wolverine Club.
Two thousand tickets for the
game have been purchased by the
Wolverine Club. They will go on
sale Oct. 6, 7, and 8 at the booth in
Mason Hall from 8:30 to 12 in
conjunction only with the round
trip tickets. The fourth day, Oct.
9, the extra game tickets will be on
sale to everyone.
Total cost of a round trip train
ticket and game ducat will be
$14.60. Individual tickets to the
game will be $3.60. "The round
trip train price is a special re-
duced rate we have been able to
procure by getting an entire
train," said Don Greenfield, pub-
licity director of the Wolverine
The special train will leave the
Ann Arbor station Saturday, Oct.
1, at 12:01 a.m. It will arrive in
Champaign at 7:00 a.m. The re-
turn train will leave at 5:30 p.m.
and reach Ann Arbor by about
12:30 a.m. Sunday.
The Illinois trip is one of a
series of events sponsored by the
Wolverine Club, a student club of
80 members interested in promot-
ing student athletic spirit at Mich-
igan. The Wolverine Club also
plans to provide flash cards with
which the student cheering sec-
tion can make giant symbols at
football games. The first of these
flashcards are to be used at the
Stanford game this Saturday.-
The Wolverine Club is being ac-
tivated again this year, after being
dormant during the war. It hopes
to enlarge its scope of activities
in succeeding years to build stu-
dent school spirit at all athletic

Sign Up 70 Per Cent
During registration earlier this
semester, Michigan's fighting en-
gineers were confronted by a snap-
py looking crew of Council sales-
men who vended 2600 yellow class
membership and activities cards
to over 70 percent of the slide rule
toting students. These cards,
guarantee to the holder-free ad-
mission to every phase of the ac-
tivities program for the coming
year. This will include lectures,
smokers, mixers, picnics, dances
and other similar affairs.
In addition, the cards serve as a
receipt for the students class dues
and will be valid for a discount on
caps and gowns for graduation.
Engineering Energy
According to Ev Ellin, president
of the Engineering Council, the
group feels that there is a great
deal of latent energy in the engi-
neering student body. "Since the
average engineer does not take ad-
vantage of the various all-campus
activities, we plan to offer him an
extensive program of projects, af-
fairs, and social functions at the
Engineering College," Ellin said.
Sigma Rho Tau, engineering

present the first all-engineering
affair offered under the program.

'More Drastic
Action' Seen
By Secretary
Outlines Problem
WASHINGTON, Sept. 30-Sec-
retary of Labor Schwellenbach to-
night hinted at food rationing if
President Truman's campaign for
voluntary conservation fails to
"meet the need of starving people
While Mr. Truman's 26-member
Citizens Food Committee gathered
here to fashion a program to sup-
port his "waste less" appeal, the
Cabinet officer declared:
"President Truman's program,
if successful on a voluntary basis,
will make unnecessary more dras-
tic action.
"But I am confident that the
people of this country would over-
whelmingly support more drastic
action, even rationing of essen-
tials, if the present system does
not work."
Blow to High Prices
Schwellenbach indicated the ad-
ministration also expects the food
conservation drive will be a blow
at high prices, thus making "our
economy stronger" while aiding
Europe. His remarks were made
in an address prepared for deliv-
ery at Hot Springs, Ark.
Meanwhile Chairman Vanden-
berg (Rep., Mich.) summoned the
Senate Foreign. Relations Com-
mittee to meet Nov. 10 and study
the President's proposal for $580,-
000,000 in emergency winter re-
lief for Western Europe.
Vandenberg Backs Plan
Vandenberg issued a statement
that .the immediate question is
one of elemental human survival
in a free society." He noted that
the proposal is separate from the
Marshall Plan-a long range pro-
gram to build back Europe's
economy which will be submitted
to Congress later.
Mr. Truman asked that Senate
and House Foreign Relations and
Appropriations Committee meet
soon to consider providing for
stop-gap aid and to guide his de-
cision whether to call a special
session of Congress in advance of
the regular January meeting.
Other Developments
Other related developments in
the capital included:.
1. Government officials were
considering a plan to offer higher
priced foods to European nations
at cut rates to substitute for some
of the grains they now buy.
2. A series of anti-inflation
moves by the administration were
reported to be in the offing.
3. Edwin G. Nourse, Chairman
of the President's Council of Eco-
nomic Advisers, will see Mr. Tru-
man tomorrow with an analysis of
the economic situation together
with "some recommendations."
4. Rep. Hoffman (Rep., Mich.)
said in a statement that Mr. Tru-
man is trying to "shove" on the
Republicans the responsibility of
decidingon a special session. He
said that if the President "lacks
the courage to decide the simple
question" he should resign.
