HAMBURG, Germany - (IP) -
About two million women in the
British Zone of Germany have no
hope of getting married. -
On the average there are 120
women in the zone for every 100
x men. In some areas the proportion
is as high as 150 to 100.
A BRITISH official report said:

Dinner Costs
WASHINGTON-(IP)--The tra-
ditional Thanksgiving Day turkey
dinner is going to cost about seven
per cent more this year in the na-
tion's capital.
Reporting this today the gov-
ernment's Bureau of Labor Sta-
- t'istics said the turkey gets most of
the blame for the increase.
Some foods are up from a year
ago and some are down, but tur-
keys led the advancing items with
an 11-cent increase to reach an
average 74 cents a pound here.
For a family of four in Wash-
ington, the bureau found the din-
g ner will cost $5.47 this year, com-
pared with $5.12 in 1947.

ENDING WEDNESDAY

of the Thirty Lears' War has any
community had such a dispropor-
tionate sex distribution." After
that war polygamy was widely
practiced in what is now modern
Germany.
The Military Government's
public opinion research organi-
t zation explored the possibility
of polygamy being practiced
again. Over 500, people were
questioned in Hamburg and the
neighboring country district of
Schleswig-Holstein.
In Hamburg, 13 per cent of those
questioned said they expected poly-
gamy to spread. In Schleswig-
Holstein the percentage was 14.
But the great majority disap-
proved of it.

Veterans acquiring dependents
after enrolling in schools or col-
leges under the GI Bill as single
persons should notify the Veterans
Administration immediately so
that an adjustment may be made
in their subsistence allowances.
Veterans with one dependent
should also report any additional
dependents they acquire.
Subsistence payments will be
increased as of the date of notifi-
cation and not retroactively to the
date on which the veteran actually
acquired the dependent.
* * '*:
THE VETERANS Administra-
tion is now sending notice two
months before the expiration date
of National Service Life Insurance
term policies about to expire.
This will allow the veterans
time to convert their term pol-
icies to a permanent NSLI plan
or renew their term insurance
for an additional five year pe-
riod. Renewals may be made
without a physical examination,
butat a higher premium rate
based on the veterans' age at
the time of renewal.

Under authority granted by the
80th Congress, the Veterans Ad-
ministration is now permitted to
pay a mileage allowance to dis-
abled veterans authorized to travel
for vocational rehabilitation pur-
poses.

ClIO ..
PORTLAND, Ore. - WP - An
apparently innocuous resolution
exploded today, causingra bitter
left wing-right wing battle on the
CIO convention floor for the sec-
ond straight day.
President Philip Murray again
was in the vanguard- of the
struggle, which showed signs of
becoming a definite campaign to
knock Communists and fellow-
travelers from CIO office.
THE RESOLUTION was one
urging increased organizing ef-
IZFA TIo Hold
Seminar Here
Meetings To Feature
Discussion and Skit
Representatives from six central
state schools will attend a three
day seminar of the Intercollegiate
Zionist Federation, Nov. 26-28, at
the Hillel Foundation.
"Zionism on the American
Scene" is the subject of the panel
discussion which will be held at
1:45 p.m., Sat., Nov. 27. Rabbi
Joseph Miller, of Detroit, will
present the Labor Zionist view-
point and Rabbi M. S. Perlis, of
the Detroit Youth Committee, will
speak for the Zionist Organization
of America.

forts. Left-wingers seized upon it
to denounce Murray's criticism of
the left yesterday and to decry
what James Matles of the United
Electrical Workers said were raids
by some CIO unions on his and
other organizations. Others im-
plied high CIO officials approved
the raids.
George Baldanzi, executive
vice-president of the textile
workers, and a key man in the
southern organizing drive, fired
the heaviest counter-blast.
"We don't have raids in the
CIO. We have revolts of workers
against Communist domination,"
he shouted.

ONCE AGAIN MURRAY hit at
unions that have not shown
growth, and he issued what was
in effect a sharp warning to the
president of the United Public
Workers, Abram Flaxer.

AFL,.*
CINCINNATI --(M)-The Amer-
ican Federation of Labor planned
immediate peace talks with the
International Association of Ma-
chinists and said today it would
offer terms to the CIO and John
L. Lewis' miners "at the first op-
portunity."
President William Green told re-
porters the AFL was "encouraged
to believe we can find a basis of
accommodation now" for the re-
turn of the 650,000 machinists.
They left the AFL in 1946, capping

a 34-year dispute with the car-
penters over installing plant ma-
chinery.
"Time has served to help reduce
that problem," Green said.
* * *
HE ANNOUNCED he would ar-
rnage a conference between stand-
ing committees of the AFL and
machinists immediately on his re-
turn to Washington.
The Machinists' Committee,
consisting of Vice President H.
A. Hayes and Secretary-Treas-
urer Eric Peterson, does not in-
clude Harvey W. Brown, who led
the machinists from the AFL
after years of argument with
William Hutcheson, boss of the
carpenters. Brown retires as ma-
chinists president next June.
The AFL's 67th convention,
which adjourned yesterday, called
upon its officers to work. for a
unified labor movement. It men-
tioned specifically meetings with
the CIO, Lewis and the machin-
ists. Many of the railroad brother-
hoods are now affiliated with the
AFL, though not all.
Peace overtures to the CIO and
Lewis were less hopeful than to
the machinists, Green indicated,
but he promised to take advan-
tage of the first opening.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The

TO THE QUESTION: "Would you
tolerate polygamy?" Only two per
cent in Schleswig-Holstein and
eight per cent in Hamburg an-
swered "yes." In Hamburg the age
group 31-44 showed themselves
most willing to tolerate polygam-
ous unions.
The city people gave these rea-
sons for tolerance-to propagate
humanity; to overcome economic
difficulties of spinisters; sympathy
for other women; to avoid forcing
men into being liars and because
"polygamy is more natural under
the circumstances."
Williams Views
State's Finances
LANSING - (/P) - Gov.-elect
G. Mennen Williams delved today
into the state's tangled finances
but came up with no answers.
Williams conferred with State
Controller John A. Perkins, a Re-
publican appointee whom he has
said will eventually be replaced.
Williams said no conclusions
should be drawn from his bring-
ing any of those three with him
to talk finances and administra-
tive procedures. There has been
speculation as to Perkins' succes-
sor.
Williams said he expected he
would have to accept Perkins'
draft of the 1949-50 state budget
because of the lack of time for
preparation of his own.
