PRICE FIVE CENTS
To Be Supported,
Six displaced students from Germany will receive tuition schol-
arships to the University for the spring semester.
As the first step in a project to help displaced students resume
their studies, campus groups will take the responsibility of providing
room and board and general expenses for the six students.
A NEW STUDENT organization will serve as the central com-
mittee to facilitate the displaced students' admission and housing, and
to direct individual group action. An open meeting for students and
organizations interested in participating in the project will be held
Wednesday, Sept. 27.
The six displaced students are among several hundred whom

For Big Nine Lead
Quartet of Nation's Top Linebackers
Expected To Add Defensive Thrills
By MURRAY GRANT
(Daily Sports Editor)
In what promises to be the game of the day, Michigan meets the
undefeated Northwestern Wildcats this afternoon at the Michigan
Stadium in a knock-down, drag-out struggle that may well decide this
year's Big Nine champion.
At the start of the season, Michigan was co-favorite for the title
along with Purdue and Minnesota, and Northwestern was considered
the darkhorse candidate.
Still in Process
A four-day truce has been called
in the telephone strikes which shut
down long-distance calls from
Ann Arbor and 16 other Michigan
The truce came as a result of
an emergency conference with the
telephone company and union
leaders called by Gov. Kim Sigler
at Detroit yesterday.
LOCAL OPERATORS had called
off their picketing at midnight
Wednesday, and returned to work
on their regular shifts yesterday.
No disciplinary action has
been taken against any of the
strikers, according to Nicholas
J. Prakken, manager of the Ann
Although Gov. Sigler said that
he does ,not want to "force either
party into a corner," the CWA of-
ficials indicated they would like
the board's recommendations to be
final and binding.

Court to block an $7,217,000 annual

Foreign student tuition scholar-

BERLIN, - (A) - The United
States and Britain combined their
airlift task forces under American
command today while Russian
guns rumbled in war practice
within earshot of Berlin.
U. S. Air Force headquarters at
Wiesbaden announced the sign-
ingof an agreement to put all air-
life operations under the com-
mand of Maj. Gen. William A.
Tunner who flew war supplies over
the Himalayan "hump" from
Burma to China.

THE EFFORT to feed Berlin
henceforth will be known as the
"combined airlift tack force." The
agreement was signed by Lt. Gen.
Curtis E. Lemay, U. S. Air Force
Commander in Europe, and air
marshal Sir Arthur P. M. Saun-
ders, commander in chief of Brit-
ish Air Forces in Germany.
Tunner, who c'ommands
American airlift planes, will
have operational but not admin-
istrative control of the British
airlift. He will have headquar-
ters in Wiesbaden. His British
deputy, Air Commodore J. W. F.
Merer, will have a base at
Buckeberg in the British zone.
The U. S. Air Force said the
merger was intended to coordinate
American and British resources so
as to put them to more efficient
Gen. Lucius D. Clay, American
military governor, commented
that the team-up was merely his-
tory repeating itself. He said he
did not doubt it would work har-
moniously because "we learned to
work so closely with the British
during the war."
A BRITISH officer at Gatow
airport on the western outskirts of
Berlin said he believed the Russian
gunfire came from tanks engaging
in maneuvers and was about three
miles away. The cannon shots
shook windows at the airport.

A. Bramuglia of Argentina
tossed aside diplomatic niceties
and with clenched firsts told
Vishinsky that he could not ac-

Vishinsky fidgeted. Later he said
he was not apologizing but had
not meant to reflect on the char-
acter of any delegate.
THE OTHER neutral countries
-Canada, China, Colombia, Syria
and Belgium-said they fully sup-
ported Bramuglia, who had acted
as their spokesmen in contacting
Russia and the Western Powers in
mediation efforts. A British
spokesman said Vishinsky's speech
slammed the door on mediation.

exceptions can be made to the
rule. Extra men have been add-
ed to the ticket-taking crew to
check the student ID cards. Du-

dent tickets will be confiscated
for the remainder of the season.
Wives of students will be asked
to present athletic coupon books.
Students who have not yet re-
ceived ID cards from the Univer-

BUT PURDUE HAS failed miserably and Minnesota dropped a
close one to the Wildcats in their battle last week. Northwestern, un-
der Bob Voigts, has swept through three games and is the most
serious threat to Michigan's retaining her crown.
Voigts has done an amazing job with his team. He has taken
the same group of players that finished in eighth place in the
Conference last year and transformed them into a team that
ranks third in the country.
He's taken two excellent backs in Frank Aschenbrenner and Art
Murakowski and surrounded them with four others of almost equal
ability and put in front of them a line that will match any in the
Big Nine, if not in the country.
The youthful mentor has taken a fair quarterback, Don Burson,
and made him into an excellent signal caller and the passer that is
leading the Conference with 15 completions in 29 attempts.
