Germans Claim British
Are Taking Their Food


HAMBURG, Oct. 2-(JP)-Offi-
cials of British Military Govern-
ment admit being unable to kill
what they call "the biggest Ger-
man lie since Goebbels."
Despite all their efforts through
radio, newspapers, posters and ex-
hibitions, an incredible number of
German people firmly believe that
food is being exported from hun-
gry Germany to Britain.

Within Cabinet
WASHINGTON, Oct. 2--(/P)-
Henry Morgenthau, Jr., said today
Henry Wallace and Cordell Hull
opposed recognition of Soviet Rus-
sia in 1933 on religious grounds
and Wallace's position led Presi-
dent Roosevelt to call him "a kind
of mystic."
The former Treasury Secretary
said in the third of a series of six
articles in Collier's magazine,
based on his diaries, that Mr.
Roosevelt believed non-recognition
of Russia "a futile gesture against
an establshed government."
Morgenthau added that "he
must have perceived that Russia
would be a natural ally" against
Religious Issue i
But the State Department, Mor-
genthau said, was "unsympathetic
if not hostile" and Secretary Hull
"gave the impression that the re-
ligious issue was uppermost in his
"Opposition came also, strange-
ly enough, from Henry Wallace,
who called on the President late
in October in order to express his
fears about the 'religious effect'
recognition would have on the
country. That conversation left
the President thoroughly puzzled."
Preliminary Work
Detailing his own preliminary
work in negotiating with the Rus-
sians, Morgenthau said he met
With William Bullitt, then han-
dling Soviet affairs in the State
He said Bullitt hoped then to
be the first ambassador to Mos-
cow and "was as furiously pro-
Russian as he is furiously anti-
Russian today.
' e saw in American aid the
means by which the Soviet Union
could break away from its depen-
dence on Germany and could be-
come a bulwark against the ag-
gressive tendencies we all thought
were developing in Japan," Mor-
genthau said.
N umber of Concessions
Morgenthau said the President
had to make a number of conces-
sins, to "prevalent isolationist
opinion" and some, such as the
1936 Neutrality Act, "were, I think,
When Morgenthau argued for
sale of surplus cotton to China
to strengthen her against Japan,
the State Department feared it
would "offend Japan" and Wal-
lace "simply ignored the foreign
policy implications," he said.
Morgenthau said Wallace, then
him, if the sale went through, to
Secretary of Agriculture, asked
withhold announcement of it for
30 days "so that the price of cot-
ton will stay down and I can go
out and " conclude my arrange-
ments to lease land (for the gov-
ernment) from cotton growers and
withdraw it from cultivation."
Morgenthau said he told Wal-
lace the farmers "would feel that
you had misled them" and said
Wallace replied: "I do not care
what they think as long as I can
lease their land."

ervision disclose month after!
month implicit belief that but-
ter, eggs, milk, meat and vege-
tables are being sent by ship and
plane to the United Kingdom.
A recent questioning of 6,000
Germans throughout the British
zone on the distribution of food
showed that one in every eight
thought food was being exported
from both the British and Ameri-
can zones.
Met with Shrug
British protests are met with
a shrug and a cynical: "Of course
you deny it-you can't do any-
thing else-but nevertheless I
know it's true. Why only last
week my wife was talking to a
farmer who .
The "farmer"-who apparently
has never been seen face to face-
usually tells some tale'like this.
"I took my wheat (or potato, or
cabbage or beet) crop to the rail-
way station and loaded it in two
trucks. I forgot my hat and went
back for it an hour later. There
were English words chalked on
the sides of the trucks. My crop
was going to be sent to England!."
Shop Sold Out
In Hamburg a shop sold out of
vegetables. The proprietress an-
swered the disappointed protests
of the hausfraus by pointing dra-
matically to a Britain-bound Brit-
ish European Airways passenger
aircraft passing over head. "There
go your vegetables-every day the
planes take them to England."
A party of Russian journalists
visiting Hamburg asked to ;be
shown the printing works where
the British labels were printed to
wrap the exported German but-
Dock Inspections
A disheartened British informa-
tion officer said: "I have person-
ally conducted several parties of
German journalists around the
Hamburg docks, let them look at
anything they like, talk to whom
they like. They saw ships being
unloaded, none being loaded with
food. They couldn't find a single
docker who had loaded food for
export. But still the lie persists-
and I am convinced half the Ger-
man population believe it."
German Club
Elects Officers
Will Correspond with
Students in Germany
In its first meeting of the se-
mester, the German club,
Deutscher Verein, elected new of-
ficers and also discussed letters
which were received from the stu-
dents at the University of Mar-
burg, in Germany.
Plans, which include the re-
sumption of correspondence with
German students, interrupted by
the war, were made for this se-
mester's activities.
Newly elected officers are: Ruth
Briegel, president; Gus Butter-
bach, vice president; Lois Allison,
corresponding secretary; Bill Sin-
nigan, recording secretary; Ann
Mosher, treasurer; Bill Sturtz,
social chairman; and Corky Stev-
ens and Eleanor Eppstein, "Kaffee
Stunde" chairman.

Veterans Will
Have Checks
By November
Leave Pay Sought by
July Due Next Week
Subsistence allowance checks
for veterans who entered or re-
entered the University this fall
under the GI bill should reach
them during the first 10 days in
November, the Veterans Adminis-
tration announced yesterday.
Although the receipt of subsis-
tence checks during early Novem-
ber is not guaranteed, Leonard S.
Gregory, training supervisor of the
V.A., pointed out that all steps
have been taken to assume that
the bulk of these checks will be
forwarded to student veterans at
that time.
Delays will be the exeception, he
said, and will usually be found in
those instances where the student
has transferred from schools and
colleges in other regional V.A.
areas and failed to secure a sup-
plementary certificate of eligibil-
ity or to notify the V.A. office,
which now has his files, of his in-
tention to make such a transfer.
In regard to leave pay checks,
Gregory explained that they
would likely be received within the
next week by veterans who made
application for such pay near the
end of the Summer Session.

Hits Fishes'
While most of us are satisfied
to lazily toss a lure or a fishing
pole into the old mill pond and
hope the fish will come to us, Prof.
Karl F. Lagler, of the Department
of Zoology chases the fish around
until they just don't have any pri-
vate life at all.
During the ice-ages, all fish
life in the Great Lakes area was
destroyed-but it has since re-
vived. The now and why of this
revival are the problems of Dr.
Lagler, who is an associate of the
Institute for Fisheries Research
of the Michigan Department of
FBI Cunning
Sleuthing with the cunning of
an F.B.I. agent, Dr. Lagler, whose
work is partly supported by a
Faculty Research Grant, from the
Rackham School ofhGraduate
Studies, and by the Michigan De-
partment of Conservation, has
spent the last three summers in
the upperaGreatrLakes region.
There he hunted fish species
around islands and compared
them with inland species to de-
termine the present distribution of
fish in the area.
Efforts Rewardedj
Prof. Lagler's efforts were re-
warded; three entirely new types
of fish were discovered. But, ac-
cording to the International
Rules of Zoological Nomenclature,
names of fish cannot be released
until an official description ap-
pears in the papers of the Michi-
gan Academy of Sciences, Arts
and Letters.
Beyond Comprehension
Piscatorial fanciers and just
plain fisherman will welcome the
news that there is still an inesti-
mable number of fish in the Great
Lakes. "The number of fish in the
Great Lakes is beyond compre-
hension," he commented.
Much of the data which Prof.
Lagler collected will be used in the
book, "Fishes of the Great Lakes,"
which he is writing in collabora-
tion with Prof. Hubbs of the
Scripps Institute of Oceanogra-

French Club
Has Fortieth
Marks Long Service
By Cerce Francais
The University French Club, La
Cercie Francais, marks its 40th
anniversary on the Michigan cam-
pus with the 1947 fall semester.
Prof. Charles E. Koella, of the
romance language department,
and Le Cercle's faculty advisor,
reports that during these 40 years
it has never missed a semester in
any of its numerous activities.
Each year the Club presents a
series of lectures on French cul-
ture by members of the faculty,
and attempts to give its members
a speaking knowledge of the lang-
uage through discussion groups,
songfests in French, and an an-
ual French play, produced and
enacted by members of the group.
Last year's play, "La Malade
Imaginaire," by French play-
wright Moliere, was acclaimed a
success by capacity crowds to
which it played.
An off-spring of La Cercle is
La P'tite Causette, a conversation-
al group which meets every Mon-
day and Thursday in the League.
It gives students a chance to ex-
change ideas in French over a
cup of tea or coffee. La Causette
begins its second year on campus
this term.
Membership in either organiza-
tion is open only to those students
who have completed one year of
college French or its equivalent.
Price Spiral
Senator Says Rise
Leads to Disaster
DETROIT, Oct. 2-(AP)-Sena-
tor Raymond E. Baldwin (Rep.,
Conn.) declared tonight that "if
prices are allowed to increase at
their present rate, we are headed
for an economic collapse."
Baldwin, in an address before
the Midwestern Conference of
Women Republican Leaders from
19 states, continued:
"Such an economic collapse here
would not only endanger our form
of government, it would not only
endanger the health and safety of
out nation, but at this time it
could bring anarchy, revolt and
war throughout the world."
The senator, vice chairman of a
Senate sub-committee studying
food and clothing prices, said it
"is clear that thousands of our
people, even some of those with in-
comes from fifty to sixty dollars
a week, can not adequately feed
their families at present day
"We can not overestimate the
potential seriousness of the price
situation for the prize to solution
of high prices may well be the
1948 election," he continued.

AP Foreign Affairs Analyst
The State Department an-
nouncement of diplomatic recog-
nition of Bulgaria, coming in the
middle of efforts to bar that coun-
try from United States member-
ship, has the appearance of a
tactical slip-up but with mitigat-
ing circumstances.
Officials must have known the
act itself would carry more weight
than the accompanying explana-
tion that recognition should not
be considered as approval of the
Bulgarian government. They ap-
parently didn't believe it would be
sufficient, however, to make any
important change in the UN vote,
or to seriously embarrass the
American delegation in its argu-
ments. And, from their stand-
point, it was time to announce the
The action had been under con-
sideration for some time. It means,
as the Department explained, no
retreat from U. S. opposition to
the Bulgarian Communists. It se-
cures an observation post in the
Russian sphere just as relations

with Vichy provided a listening
post among the Nazis during the
war. It reasstres anti-Communist
elements in Bulgaria that they are
not being deserted.
After the decision was reached,
some time ago, it was necessary to
obtain Sofia's approval of Donald
Heath as minister. When that
came the announcement followed
as routine.
There is a possibility, as a mat-
ter of fact, that officials consid-
ered it a good opportunity to re-
of Bulgaria as an actual contribu-
tion to the fight against her ad-
mission to the UN.
Also, the United States has been
deliberately trying to eradicate
the old conception that diplomatic
recognition connotes approval.
President Roosevelt took the new
line as far back as 1933 in connec-
tion with recognition of Russia,
and it has been followed generally
ever since. The only unrecognized
Russian satellite in Europe now is
Albania. And that gap has little
practical significance, since Al-
bania is really only a "county" in
Marshal Tito's dictatorship.
