Police Upset
Club Scheme
For Drinking
No Action Taken,
Against Students
Police broke up a scheme Friday
evening, which had permitted
students' to drink in the rooms of
the Smith Catering Company.
Capt. Albert Heusel of the Ann
Arbor police department obtained
a warrant yesterday for June
Smith, owner of the concern for
violating a city ordinance which
prohibits consumption of liquor in
business places without a license.
Smith's had formed a private
"It's a Date Club" with member-
ship cards for admittance. No li-
quor was sold but members were
allowed to bring their own bottles.
Police Investigate
Capt. Heusel and detective
George Simmons went to Smith's
at 10:30 p.m. Friday and found
students drinking. No action was
taken against any students.
Capt. Heusel said that he had
no objection to the private club as
A such, but that it was against the
law to allow liquor consumption
without a license.
The situation came to the atten-
tion of the police when a diner,
noticing the drinking, called to
find if it was legal.
No Questions Asked
The "It's a Date Club," organiz-
ed in January, met every Friday
and Saturday night at Smith's. A
membership fee of $1 was charged
for joining, and no questions were
asked about the members' ages.
Club prices were high, with a
charge of 20 cents for checking
each garment, a price of 75 cents
for a bottle of ginger ale, and 25
rcents for a bowl of ice.
Jack Trustman, the president of
the club, is also the former pub-
isher of "It's a Date" magazine.
Capt. Heusel said that he had
no plans as yet for further action
against Trustman.
Agreement on
European Pact
Thou&ht Near
BRUSSELS, Belgium, March 6
-(P)-The pblitical and legal basis
of a western European economic
and military union was laid down
All sources said there was gen-
eral agreement on the basic prin-
ciples of a 50-year pact binding
Britain, France, Belgium, The
Netherlands and Luxembourg,. but
considerable work remained be-
fore the basic agreements can be
phrased. The conference, which
opened last Thursday, is expected
to continue until next Wednesday
or Thursday.
Totalitarians Excluded
British delegates said the struc-
ture agreed upon here will be a
union committed to western ideas
of democracy to which no to-
talitarian could subscribe,
Sii' George Rendel, British am-
bassador to Belgium, said it will
definitely commit the western un-
ion to mutual armed defense, but
will make no attempt to detail
defense provisions.

The political basis of the pact
was reached at tonight's session.
Gladwyn Jebb of the British For-
ign Off ice said one of the main
points of political discussion was
the attitude toward states outside
the pact. He indicated all parties
agreed the pact must unequivo-
cally favor western ideas of lib-

by the attitude toward other coun-

Campus Goes Anti-UMT
After questioning 241 students on Universal Military Train-
ing The Daily's Roundup Reporters last week discovered that
anti-UMT forces hold a slight edge on the University campus.
Continuing The Daily's weekly survey of student opinion on
pertinent questions we sent our crew of tryouts out to query
students on UMT.
One hundred thirty-one students, 54 per cent of those ques-
tioned, came out against UMT. The remaining 110 students, or
46 pei. cent, favored UMT.
Of the 131 students opposed to military training less than
half-or 47--said they would favor some type of specialist train-
ing similar to that advocated by President Ruthven. The
remaining 84 students opposed military training in any form.
The Daily roundup reporters asked the 110 students in
favor of the move just what kind of training should be adopted.
Eighty four urged a one-year period of military training. Only
11 students would favor a training program longer than one
year. However seven students replied that the military training
program should be less than one year..
Questioned on just when this military training period should
start, students favoring the move had 74 votes for a plan to
start at the end of high school. The remaining 36 students urged
a training program to begin at 18 years of age.
Here's a recapitulation of the figures:
Total questioned ....................231
Against UMT....................131
Against UMT but favoring specialist
training......... ............47
For UMT .................... ......110
One Year Service................84

!But for the bewjldering ruling,
of a referee Michigan's wrestlers
would be the Western Conference
champions for 1948, instead of
sharing second place with Iowa
and Illinois, one point behind title
winning Purdue.
Bob Betzig, Michigan captain,
twice was penalized in his final
match withaKen Marlin of Illinois
for using an "illegal hold," the
same cradle hold that enabled him';
to pin two earlier opponents in the

second place trio.

The 1948 issue of the Big Nine

Steps were taken by the senior
staff of the Gargoyle yesterday to
bring suit against the Wisconsin
Octopus, vaguely amusing humor
magazine of that university, for
violation of national copyright
The Wisconsin Octopus, running
24 pages and a cover for 25 cents,
has seen fit to improve the quality
of its humor by lifting en toto two
sterling features from recent is-
sues of the Gargoyle, without giv-
ing required credit to the Garg.
The Gargoyle is a copyrighted
publication. The stories appeared
in the December and January is-
sues of the Wisconsin magazine.
Quip Joint
"We do not object to brighten-
ing the lives of Badger students by
letting them see good humor for
a change," Gargoyle editor Thom
Strope pointed out, "but we see no
point in the Octopus' taking cred-
it for something it clipped out of a
better magazine."
"The Gargoyle, bless its little
pink format, is a fully copyrighted
publication, among other things,"
business manager Frances Hodes
observed. "When the Octopus lifts
our features without giving a cred-
it line to the Gargoyle, they obvi-
ously violate copyright laws. The
Octopus hasn't a leg to stand on,"
she said, sitting down.1
Cowles Scowls
Oscar Cowles, local sports en-
thusiast, explained the matter in
psychological terms. "Ah, they're
just jealous 'cause my boys knock-
ed 'em outa the running in Big
Nine basketball," he declared.
The cover of the December Oc-
topus is somewhat amusing. It
shows a tall Wisconsin basketball
player successfully guarding the
basket against all comers.
A chance acquaintance, one
Herbert Crisler, had a different ex-
planation for Wisconsin's ungent-
lemanly attitude toward Michigan
institutions. "As I recall," le said,

gazing reflectively at a nearby pig,
"several people thought the foot-
ball game in Madison last Novem-
ber 15 would be very very close."
Only Doug Parker, associate edi-
tor of the Garg and author of the
two features that were stolen by
the Octopus, seemed relatively un-
dismayed by the Wisconsin sin. "I
would say the Wisconsin editors
have absolutely no moral stand-
ards," he said, coloring a pound of
oleo, "but their good taste is be-
yond question."

WRONG SIDE INSIDE-Campus Cop, Harold Swoverland, is the
first victim of Deputy "Ike" Schlanderer's king-size key to the
county's "drunk room." A recent Sheriff's Annual Banquet
touched off the horseplay. Stern and fearsome clan of blue-
coats presented the oversize key to their bemonocled "Baron von
Schlanderer." The baron claims to be the only turnkey in the
United States that wears a monocle.

World News AtA Glance
WASHINGTON, March 6-(/P)-Senator Bridges (R.-NH) said to-
night the administration is going to have to speak out its "basic policy
towards Russia" before any foreign relief funds are appropriated.
Bridges, chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, told
reporters: "We have to find out what the basic policy is toward Russia
and what we are going to do under certain contingencies."

Life's grim pace is from time
to time arrested, so to speak in
its hard sweep, and one of those
times was the recent Sheriff's
Annual Banquet out at Grange
Hall, well known haven for stu-
dent victims of the beer ban.
The collective hair of the Sher-
iff's department was temporarilyc
let down when Ike Schlanderer,I
deputy, was presented an. over-e
size key (see cut) bearing an as-t
tonishing similarity in detail to
the key to the "drunk room" att
the County Jail. Attached to itt
was a card which read: "Made
by the Saint Louis Jail Equipments
Co. for Baron von Schlanderer."
Meet the Baron
(Ike claims to be the only turn-
key in the United States that1
wears a monocle. So ,far as we]
know he is).1
Ike showed us around the Jail,.
using several of his many keys
with an assurance that was some-{
what bewildering. We asked Ike
just how he managed to get the
right keys in the right locks with
so many to choose from.
"You won't believe this," says
Ike, "but you just get used to
the feel of 'em."
Artistic Felons
An interesting piece of inci-
dental intelligence that we picked
up concerns the leanings of hold-
up men that have passed through
the County Jail.
"It seems that every time we
get a hold-up man in there, lie's
an artist of some sort," said Ike.
A few drawings we were shown,
largely concerned with figures of
undressed women, seemed to sub-
stantiate his statement. Rather
well done, too.

Western Zone
Assigned Role
In Aid Plans
Germany Is Given
Federal Government
By The Associated Press
LONDON, March 6-The United
States, Britain and France an
nounced agreement tonight on fu-
ture international control of the
Ruhr and a federalized form of
government for Western Germany.
The three Western Powers dis-
closed their aims in a communique
which assigned Western Germany
a major role in the Marshal Plan
for European recovery. France has
been suspicious that German re-
covery would endanger her secur-
The communique wrapped Up
probably the greatest number of
decisions reached at a major
confernce since the war's end.
It was a statement of obvious
compromise and condilation be-
tween the three powers and con-
tained some important incentives
for the German people to work
for "close association" with the
Western World.
No hard agreement was reached
upon merger of the French occu-
pation zone with the United States
-British zones. Howeveit, res-
ponsible officials 'said decisions
reached at the conference here will
lead to that objective. In all like-
lihood a new attempt in that di-
rection will be made in April.
Left up in the air was the
question of ltussian particia-
tion in the proposed interna-
tional control of the Ruhr. tus-
sia has advocated four-power
rule of the valley. It was agreed
that Germany would pa-rtid-
pate, however.
The Ruhr agreement was des-
cribed in general terms. Specific
recommendations were not dis-
closed. These will be submitted first
to the governments concerned.
France has asked for full interna-
tional control and ownership of
the industrial valley's mines and
mills. The communique did not
say whether German ownership of
the area's mines and factories
would continue.
Purpose of international control,
the communique said, would be to
prevent the Ruhr's resources from
being used again for aggression.
The Western Powers also agreed
that "there should be adequate ac-
cess to the coal, coke and steel of
the Ruhr for the benefit of exten-
sive parts of the European com-
munity including Germany"
Jury Acquits
Local Barber
Dascola 'Not Guilty'
Of Discrimination
Barber Dominic Dascola was
found not guilty of violating the
Diggs anti-discrimination act af-
ter an hour and a half deliberation
by jury in Judge Jay H. Payne's
Municiple Court yesterday.
Judge Payne convened court at
10 a.m. and charged the jury to
reach its decision "without influ-
ence by prejudice."
The case had been brought by,
William Grier '48M who alleged
that Dascola had refused to serve
him because of his race.
After the decision, rendered at
12:15 p.m., Dascola said, "It was a
fair trial. I do not bear any grudge
against anyone directly or in-

directly involved in the suit."
Grier said that the facts spoke
for themselves.
The decision cannot be appeal-
Dascola's defense was that he
didn't know how to cut Negro's
hair, that it took special training
and equipment.
