Guardsmen were reportedly or-

Three other major disputes in-
volving airline service to Europe,
west coast shipping, and the
Chrysler Corporation further
clouded the labor scene.
In Hattiesburg, Miss., an au-
thoritative source said the
guardsmen were ordered to pro-
tect vehicles of Southern Bus
Lines, Inc., after one bus was fired
upon yesterday a n d another

previously said he would authorize
the guards to "shoot to kill" if
violence continued in the 136 day
old strike of AFL company driv-

Some 37 members of the AFL
International Longshoremen's As-
sociation returned to work Fri-
day, and a spokesman for one of
two companies supplying the men
at the port said additional workers
would be called as ships and
barges dock. The men's return
followed issuance of a temporary
restraining order, effective for five
days, calling on the union to end
the strike and directing it to ap-
pear in Syracuse Tuesday to show
cause why an injunction should
not be issued.

Pledge To Cut
Use of Grain
WASHINGTON, Oct. 3-(Al)-
The President's Food Committee
got a pledge from about half the
distilling industry tonight to cut
the use of grain for liquor in order

plish enough" and called for a
complete shutdown of the indus-

Lee in Italian
Veteran West Pointer
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Oct. 3--The
Army gave Lt. Gen. John C. H.
Lee a clean bill of health today
and marked "closed" its investi-
gation of Army life in Italy ex-
cept for orders to correct what
it called occasional "errors" in the
treatment of enlisted men.
Lee, a veteran West Pointer who
is called "Court House Lee" by
critics of his discipline, was said
by General Dwight D. Eisenhower
to have "performed a service to
his country which has won the
approbation of associates both
civilian and military."
Series of Articles
The investigation of Lee's con-
duct as commander of the Italian
theater stemmed from a series of
articles in which Robert C. Ruark,
a Scripps-Howard newspaper col-
umnist, related charges of mis-
treatment of enlisted men and
lavish living by officers under Lee.
In New York, Ruark said he in-
tended to study the official Army
report before replying and "in my
own good time I will have the
Maj. Gen. Ira I. Wyche, Army
Inspector-General, made the re-
port. He said Ruark's charges
were based on "a few facts, half
facts, rumors and untruths." He
said there have been only "a few
isolated cases of maladministra-
tion and probable miscarriages of
justice, none of which were con-
doned and fostered by Gen. Lee."
However, in a memorandum
which Eisenhower attached to the
12,000 word report, the Army Chief
of Staff noted that there had been
some "errors." He said he was
sending out orders to the new
theatre commander (General Lee
is in this country awaiting re-
tirement) to correct them.
Specifically, Eisenhower said
General Lee should "have taken
special steps" to make clear that
his endorsement of membership in,
an organization called the "Fel-
lowship of U.S.-British Comrades"
could not be taken assan order
to join it. He said there was "un-
due pressure exercised by com-
manders to induce subordinates to
join fraternal organizations."
There were two errors in treat-
ing military prisoners: minor of-
fenders, some of them quite young,
were locked up with men guilty of
the worst sort of crime.
More than 1,200 signatures have
been obtained on petitions circu-

University Receives Veterans
Center at Dedication Service
By JOE FREIN
The new, half-million dollar Veterans Readjustment Center was
officially turned over to the University of Michigan Hospital for
operation at dedication ceremonies yesterday.
Gov. Kim Sigler of Michigan formally transferred responsibility
for the Center to President Alexander G. Ruthven who accepted in
behalf of the University.
President Ruthven pledged the University "would spare no efforts
in carrying out the purposes of the Center with the greatest efficiency."

Victory in '48
Seen by Chief
DETROIT, Oct. 3-01P)-Repub-
lican National Chairman Carroll
Reece expressed belief today that
the GOP would win the Presi-
dency in 1948 "regardless of which
of several good potential candi-
dates we nominate."
He declined comment when
asked which probable candidate
appeared to be ahead for the GOP
nomination, but asserted, "It's a
healthy sign when there are so
many good men seeking it."
Reece, in a speech at the con-
cluding session of a two-day con-
ference of Republican women
leaders from 19 midwestern states,
termed the high cost of living
"probably the most immediately
acute problem facing the nation."
He asserted, "the cold, brutal
fact is that we have in the United
States, a serious degree of infla-
tion and we are threatened with
still more inflation." 7
Reece declared, "there is a
widespread campaign afoot to
bring about reinstitution of price
controls and it is significant that
many of the advocates of such a
policy are also persons who look
with a friendly eyeon a controlled
Reece said that if price con-
trols are re-established, the na-
tion will have to bring back food
rationing and controls on wages.
He explained that veterans "suf-
fering from early mental illness
and mild emotional disturbance
will be accepted by the Center for
a relatively brief period of inten-
sive treatment, averaging six to
Dr. Waggoner pointed out that
the Center was the only one of its
kind in the nation and predicted
it would play an important role
in the treatment of psycholog-
ically disturbed veterans.
Inasmuch as the Veterans Ad-
ministration possessed limited fa-
cilities for the early treatment of
mild psychiatric cases, the Center
will mark an expansion of this
service to Michigan veterans and
replace temporary facilities pro-
vided in the University Hospital
during the last two years, he said.
Formal hospital atmosphere has
purposely been avoided in the con-
struction of the building to facili-
tate the Center's program of
treatment, Dr. Waggoner ex-
He said that everything possible
had been done to give a home-like
appearance to the Center's i-
commodations and to provide fa-
cilities "which would enable pa-
tients to do the things they might
do in their own homes."
Major Garnet Burlingame, chief
of the rehabilitation of the Mich-
igan State Office of Veterans Af-
fairs pointed out that the need
for Center had arisen after it be-
came obvious that 14 local clinics
set up in the state to provide psy-
chiatric services for veterans could
not extend short in-patient service

Harry "Cookie" Lavagetto, veteran
Brooklyn pinchhitter, lashed a vi-

Brooklyn Dodgers a thrilling 3-2
victory in the fourth game of the

finish in the 44-year history of
the classic, Lavagetto, hitting for
Eddie Stanky, swung at Bevens
first pitch and missed. On the
second he took a full cut and
whaled the ball almost on a line
to right as the crowd of 33,443
sent up a full-throated bellow.
Tommy Henrich, Yank right-
fielder, made a desperate leap
into the air, but the pellet thudded
against the boards several feet
from his glove.
For eight and two-thirds in-
nings Bevens, a 29-year-old right-
hander from Salem, Ore., had
throttled the Dodgers. Until he
made his last fateful pitch he
faced the prospect of being the
first pitcher ever to hurl a no-
hitter in a series game.
As it was, he tied two other
flingers, Claude Passeau and Ed
Reulbach, both of the Chicago
Cubs, in heaving a one-hitter.
What made the defeat even
more bitter for Bevens was the
fact that he put both the tying
and winning runs on base with

University Stadium against Mich-

The Indians, boasting 210

spearheaded by Ainslie Bell, 200-
pound passing quarterback, and
Jim Nafsiger, power-packing full-
back, are still smarting under an
unexpected 19-16 setback at the
hands of Idaho in the season's
opener last Saturday.
Partly because of this, Michigan

Indians Let Up
After opening with a two touch-
