WASHINGTON -()-The firsi

the atomic era wound up tonighi
in a blaze of oratory.
Next Tuesday 50,000,000 to 60,-
000,000 voters will give a man thi
soul-shaking assignment:
To safeguard peace and freedor
from the dangers crowding in upor
them; to curb inflation and pre-
vent a disastrous bust; to hel

-nations staggering up from th
ruins of war.
GOV. THOMAS E. Dewey, of
New York, the man the poll takers
say is way ahead, made his last
big speech in New York City's
Madison Square Garden.
President Truman kept insist-
ing the poll takers are wrong,
despite States' Rights bolters in
the South and the Wallace
schism in the North. The Presi-
dent concluded his campaign
with an address at St. Louis.
Dewey and his Republican le-
gions had set themselves two tar-
1. To roll up a bigger popular
vote margin over Truman than
Franklin D. Roosevelt rolled up
over Dewey four years ago.
2. To turn back a Democratic

charges that the western powers
are laying the foundations for a
new war.

Western delegates said they be-

THIS VIEW WAS supported by
British Minister of State Hector
McNeil, who said Stalin's state-
ment on world affairs "is just
another propaganda trumpet."
McNeil, in a U.N. radio interview,
called the Stalin statement
"Phoney" and said it was timed
to come "bang on the eve" of
Tuesday's election.
Kuzma Kiselev, White Rus-
sian delegate, was the first to
bring Stalin's declaration be-
fore the U.N. Kiselev spoke
during the Balkans debate in
the General Assembly's 58-
member political committee.
He quoted the Soviet Prime
Minister's words that the Ameri-

agreement with Russia lest such
an agreement would undermine

tonwood, England-(A')-Like an
old clock that suddenly resumes
ticking, this big wartime base has
ourst into activity again with the
return of GI's to keep Uncle Sam's
expanding European airforce in
top shape.
More than 2,000 United States
troops, most of them veterans of
World War II, have been poured
in here in order to set up the 59th
Air Depot to service and maintain
American aircraft in England and
on the continent.
FOR THE GI'S who sailed into
Liverpool aboard uncrowded troop-
ships after a serene and sunny
crossing, it was a far different
deal from the makeshift arrange-
ments encountered by the arrivals
in the early 40's.
The newcomers just moved
into ilie colonies of rounded
Nissen huts beside the long air
strips, near the big hangars and
squat workshops which sprawl
over 47 square miles of drab
Lincolnshire countryside.
In some ways, it was like re-
turning to a deserted village, one
~uddenly evacuated with the doors
slammed shut, just as they were
closed when the airforce personnel
pulled out for the States when the
war ended.

Form Organization
As Surgeons Gather
Dr. Frederick A. Coller, chair-
man of the department of surgery
at the University Medical School
and newly-elected president of the
American College of Surgeons was
again honored before the close of
its annual meeting.
The Frederick A. Coller Surg-
ical Society, with membership
open to those who have received
their surgical training under Dr.
Coller was formed in Pasadena,
Forty members, all former resi-
dents of the University surgical
department, were entertained. The
present list of members numbers
72, representing 9 states.
The aim of the society is to
provide a fund .to be used for re-
search and teaching in surgery.
Annual meetings are to be held,
next year's to be held in Chicago.
Dr. Thurston Thieme of Ann
Arbor was named treasurer of the

little round stoves are still func-
tioning. Fixing the plumbing.
Dealing out blankets and a hun-
dred and one other essential
chores. For some, it was really a
homecoming. Sgt. Michael W. Mc-
Kenna of Carthage, N.Y., was sta-
tioned here during the war.
The GI's have one gripe-and
a big one. They want their wives
over here. It's the favorite topic
among the troops.
Nearly half of them are married.
And, almost to a man, they think
the government ought to do some-
thing about keeping their families
The Depot's commanders won't
guess on the chances of the GI's
wish coming true. They say it's up
to the War Department.
THE DEFENSE Department was
worried, really worried, over how
the British people would react to+

another "invasion" by American
troops, even on a small scale, into
their pubs and privacy.
So it issued a few tips on be-
havior, in booklets written in plain
American language the kind un-
derstood in the Bronx, in Dixie,
in the Rocky Mountains.
They are sound tips-rules a
lot of the troops now here
learned the hard way in the war
while waiting here for D-Day.
This outfit is a curious mixture
of seasoned veterans and 'teen-
age rookies. The youngsters,
brought up on stories of their
older brothers' exploits abroad,
have the greater inclination to
cut-up away from home.
"ANY GUM, CHUM ?"are now
common words again on the
streets of neighboring industrial
Warrington. It's one of the wel-
come signs from the returning

troops. It's matched by the friend-
ly smiles of the English people. But
it's not always easy to keep that
smile turned on.
Take, for example, the first
time the troops were given a
night out in Warrington.
Within an hour, they overflowed
the town's only theater, captured
the local dance hall and occupied
all the pubs in the shopping dis-

Democrats 15 to 1
(By The Associated Press)
Final pre-election financial re-
ports of Senate and House camn-

GOP has spent 15 times as much
money as the Democrats.

parties collected and spent in the

campaigns. The complete financial
reports will not be made known

Olivet Trustees Call Akeley
Discharge'A Closed Incident'

OLIVET - (AP) -The Olivet
College Board of Trustees said to-
day the discharge of Prof. T. Bar-
ton Akeley is a closed incident.
The announcement came after
a student action committee read
a prepared message which quoted
a statement of administration
policy in 1944 and asked to be
allowed to sit in at the meeting.
THE BOARD refused.
Later a board spokesman said
the controversial firing of Ake-

ciclogy at Olivet, was not dis-
Members of the student com-
mittee who appeared were: Don-

THE STATEMENT read to the
board quoted President Ashley
when he was a speaker at Olivet
in 1939.
Students quoted Ashley as
saying: "Do not hate your crit-
ics. Count them as assets."
The students said Ashley re-
ferred to student critics of the
discharge of Akeley as "termites"
since taking over the presidency
of the college.
The board spokesman said the
trustees didn't take up Prof.
Akeley's discharge because of a
"crowded agenda."
He said the board adopted a
tenure plan for the faculty, which
he described as "progressive and

Stop C-mmunism! Vote Republican!

It is high time to combat Communism which threatens the very life of our nation, with
everything at our command. One way is to elect on Nov. 2nd candidates known to be 100%
Americans. No candidate on the Republican ticket from top to bottom has ever aided in any
way the Communist Party nor any of the numerous Pink organizations that support or
sympathize with the principles and actions of the Communist Party.
