Puts F oiville
Out of Action
Star To Undergo
By BILL CONNOLLY
One of the greatest athletes in
Michigan history will be forced to
the sidelines for at least a year
when he undergoes an operation
Charlie Fonville, world-cham-
pion shot-putter, will enter the
University Hospital on the 27th of
this month to undergo an opera-
tion for a back ailment that has
bothered him since early last
spring, Don Canham, track coach,
CHARLIE will spend from three
to six weeks in the hospital after
an operation on an unfused verte-
bra. The operation will force him
into a period of inactivity which
will last a year and possibly longer.
This eliminates all possibility of
his competing in track meets dur-
ing the coming 1949 season.
Canham said that Fonville's
injury is not directly due to the
strain received from tossing the
16 pound shot. He may have had
it since birth, or it may have de-
veloped within the past two
However, Canham added that
throwing the shot had irritated
the spinal column and caused pain
to the big shot putter.
FONVILLE first felt a sharp
pain in his back early last April,
just before he set his world's out-
door record. The pain was not
very bad, and Fonville thought
little about it.
In fact, he thought so little
about it that on April 17, last
spring, he smashed the world
mark by almost a foot, throwing
the iron ball 58 feet, one-fourth
inch at the Kansas Relays.
Shortly after the Kansas meet,
the pain became more pronounced
and occurred more frequently.
However, because Fonville wanted
an Olympic berth very badly, he
continued to work out despite the
soreness of his back.
* * *
CONTINUING his good work,
Charlie won the National Colle-
giate championship in Minneap-
olis, just three weeks before the
Olympic trials were held.
Fonville was bothered greatly
by his back at the NCAA meet
in Minneapolis, and because of
this, he did not participate in
the AAU championships which

Some 700 students seeking post-
graduation jobs in 1949 attended
the annual registration meetings
of the. University Bureau of Ap-
pointments yesterday and Mon-
day in the Rackham Lecture Hall.
AT THE GENERAL Placement
meeting yesterday Dr. Luther T.
Purdom, director of the Bureau,
said that all persons registered
with the Bureau have an excellent
chance to get a job. "Everything
possible will be done by us to
place you in a position agreeable
to you," he said.
Purdom told students, "The
most important asset in getting
a job is knowing people." Stu-
dents must get good references
to get good jobs, he said.
Students who failed to attend
the meetings may pick up regis-
tration material today, Thursday
and Friday in Rm. 201 Mason

Liquor Issue Untouched
By Inactive 'U' Probers
Stason Says Group Has Not Met Formally
To Investigate Warmly-Debated Problem
Members of a sub-committee appointed to probe the hotly-dis-
puted campus liquor question have so far taken "no steps" to investi-
gate it, according to chairman E. Blythe Stason, dean of Law School.
The subcommittee, appointed last May by the Committee on
Student Conduct, has not met formally, he said. Nor has the Student
Conduct Committee called its members in for a report.

DEAN STASON said the faculty members of the subcommittee-
he, Dean Hayward Keniston of lit school and Dean Earl V. Moore of
the School of Music-have met informally.
They have not met with the student members of the commit-

The nation can forget its fears
of an economic bust-at least as
far as 1949 is concerned.
"There will be some falling off
in production during the coming
year, but the reaction will not be
serious," Prof. Herman Hollis
Chapman, director of the Bureau
of Business Research, University
of Alabama, commented.
* * *
PROF. CHAPMAN, who was
elected president of the Associated
University Bureaus of Business
and Economic Research here yes-
terday, said that "strong demand
for public works construction"
would act as a favorable influence
on the economy.
"New and larger schools will
be in demand with the increase
of enrollment brought on by a
rising wartime birthrate," he
Beyond 1949, Prof. Chapman
had no forecast.
* * *
TURNING TO the steel indus-
try, which the Alabama Bureau
has been studying for several
years, Prof. Chapman had little
hope for those that seek new cars
in 1949 but was optimistic over
the future prosperity of the South.
Prof. Chapman said he dif-
fered with other economists who
had forecast cars aplenty in the
new year. He said the steel now
going into the small appliances
industries, which have nearly
filled their backlogs of orders,
would go to public works con-
"The heavy new demand for
steel in public works will even
overbalance the metal released in
small industry. Auto manufactur-
ers will still be without the steel
they need to improve output," he
* * *
"SOUTHERN prosperity will in-
crease rapidly as it has in recent
years and approach the standard
of living throughout the nation,"
Prof. Chapman said. "That means
more food and clothes for the peo-
ple of the southern states."
Prof. Chapman is a 1918 grad-
uate of the University.
Other officers elected were:
Prof. Frank L. Kidner, of the Uni-
versity of California, Prof. R. S.
Winslow, of the University of
North Carolina, and Prof. George
W. Stocking, of Vanderbilt Uni-
versity, directors; and Prof. Hohn
H. Cover, of the University of
Warner recently resigned from
For more than a year now since
the Universitypassed a regulation
prohibiting drinking on Univer-
sity property or in campus resi-
dences, the issue has been debated.
MEMBERS OF the subcommit-
tee say they aren't sure how
they're supposed to investigate.
They aren't even sure that any-
thing can be done to alter exist-
Marshall Lewis, Student Leg-
islature representative on the
subcommittee, remarked, "It's
hardly practical to let students
over 21 to drink at fraternity
parties and to point thumbs
down to those under age."
"Maybe the best thing to do
with the whole issue is to leave it
alone," he said.
PATRICIA HANNAGAN, who
represents the Women's Judiciary
Council, doubted too if much can
be done about the drinking situ-
ation. "But there's a great deal of
confusion at present," she said.
"Perhaps at least the ruling
should be restated to alleviate stu-
Serving beer in the Union
might help solve the problem,
she pointed out.
At present, however, this would
be prohibited by a local Ann Ar-
bor ordinance which prohibits
the sale of beer by the glass east
of Division Street.
BLAZE-TRAILING ENDED-Members of the Ann Arbor Fire Department take hard-riding No. 2,
a 1916 American La France, out for a last run before having to turn her over to the Dexter Fire
Department. Left to right, they are: Firemen Peter Pegan and Henry Kolander, Fire Chief Ben J..

once equipped with spoke wheels and hard rubber tires.

But the men of the fire depart-
ment are not sorry to see her go,
according to Fire Chief Ben Zahn.
"WHEN THE TRUCK was de-
livered it had wooden spoke wheels
and solid rubber tires. Most of the
boys had to stand up going to the
fire," he explained. "Years later,
we changed over to balloon tires
but then No. 2 was on 'emergency
use only,' and she was always re-
membered as being uncomfortable
for out-of-town fires."
Firemen still recall No. 2 as
the only truck to suffer the dis-
tinction of being hit by a trolley.
One sunny day in 1916, when it
was the pride and joy of all local
fire eaters, the fire wagon was
snorting up Fifth St., and at-
tempted to snake past a street
car jogging along Williams.
The trolley suffered no damage
but No. 2 had to be worked on
24 hours before she was ready to
go back into service.

Barricade the Union, they're at it again!
The women are moving farther into man's private world this fall,
with regularly scheduled football games between sorority houses,
women's dorms, and-hold your breath-men's teams.
YES, THE FEMININE touch has been added to king football,
with the end-around play and quarterback sneak becoming as much

The game is to be held at 4:45 p.m., Friday, in Burns Park.

Bolton Held :
DETROIT-(P)-Carl Bolton, 39,
was held for trial after two De-
troit hoodlums said he offered
$15,000 to have President Walter
P. Reuther of the CIO United
Auto Workers assassinated.
Recorder's Judge Christopher E.
Stein held Bolton under $75,000
bond for trial in the next term
of court on a charge of assault
with intent to murder. The term
begins late in November.
THE MAXIMUM penalty on
conviction is life imprisonment.
Bolton is a former minor official
in the CIO-UAW.
John Miller, a 45-year-old
former factory worker, and John
Pantella, 43, a former member
of the CIO-United Auto Work-
ers, testified that Carl Bolton
offered $15,000 to have Reuther
and Kenneth Bannon killed.
Bannon is head of the union's
big Ford department.

of the 39-year-old Bolton's exam-
ination on a charge of assault with
intent to kill. Reuther was crit-
