WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS,
W. Va-(P)-The next move to
settle the coal strike seems to be
Up to the government.
Union and operator teams shuf-
fled through more fruitless nego-
tiating sessions. Afterwards, an
operator spokesman announced:
* * *
"WE HAVE ABOUT reached the
end of the line. It's hopeless."
Another said everyone was
stalling, waiting for a call from
Washington.
Presumably it would be a call
for a showdown session between
United Mine Workers Chief John
L. Lewis and the industry in the
presence of government mediators.
* * *
IT COULD BE government seiz-
ure of the mines.
The White house announced
yesterday that President Tru-
man has no present plan to in-
tervene.
Lewis sat in on yesterday's talks
here between his aides and nego-
tiators for the northern and west-
ern segments of the industry. He
pulled out after 45 minutes and
disappeared.
VICE PRESIDENT Thomas
Kennedy of the UMW said, how-
ever, this should not be taken as
a sign Lewis has abandoned the
talks-"far be it from that."
An operator spokesman said
Lewis hadn't done any talking.
While he was here he issued in
Washington by remote control
another of his tart blasts at
William Green, President of the
American Federation of Labor.
Lewis has suggested to Green
that the UMW, CIO, and nine oth-
er big AFL unions put together a
$2,500,000 weekly war chest for the
CIO steel workers now on strike.
Green refused.

LEWIS WROTE Green:
"I did not think you would do
anything. You rarely do. Unfor-
tunately, you follow invariably
your well known policy of anx-
ious inertia. You cry loud for
labor peace and labor security,
but seldom do anything to se-
cure it."
AFL spokesmen in Washington
said Green has asked Lewis some
questions about his proposal and
couldn't agree to it until he got
b the answers.
The conference here continued
for two hours after Lewis left and
recessed until today.
George H. Love, spokesman for
the operators, said they "have no
place here-we're just sitting on
the sidelines while powerful union
leaders race to see which is the
most powerful."

Bradley Criticizes
Inter-Service Row
WASHINGTON-(AP)-Five-Star Gen. Omar N. Bradley told Con-
gress yesterday that the bitter row between the armed services has
done "infinite harm" to the National Defense, and he cautioned against
setting the stage for another Pearl Harbor.
Tersely, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff advised all of
the nation's fighting men to forget their feuds and "get on with the
job."
IT IS A VERY big job, he said, and very important.
Bradley had a sharp word, too, for "aspiring,martyrs"-an

obvious allusion to some Navy crit
IFC Pledges1
Non-Block
SL Voting
IFC President Jake Jacobson,
'50, last night pledged the IFC to1
continuing its non-partisan pol-t
icy in the forthcoming SL election,f
despite the AIM's decision to back
independent candidates-as such
-in the election.
Commenting on AIM's new pol-
icy, Jacobson said: "We're sorry
to see AIM take this stand."
* * *
"WE HAD HOPED the voters
might find a more significant basis
than residence for casting theirY
votes," he emphasized.
"Ini accordance with this, thea
IFC will continue its non-par-
tisan policy," Jacobson said.
"Naturally," he explained, "we
can't stop a house from voting fors
one of its members or a next-doorI
neighbor.c
* * *t
"BUT FRATERNITIES will notf
vote for a man merely because he
is a fraternity man," Jacobson de-
clared.
AIM President Walt Hansen,
'50, elaborated on his group's de-
cision to put its strength solely
behind independent candidates.
"One of the legitimate functionsr
of an organization such as AIM
is to serve independents interested
in campus affairs," he said.
"THIS SERVICE is not h66c-
sarily of an anti-fraternity na-
ture," Hansen added. n n
"I think this is a function no
other organization can or should
furnish," he concluded.
K utcher To r
SpeakHere
James Kutcher, the veteran'
who lost his job as a Veterans
Administration clerk because of
his political opinions., will speak
at 7:30 p.m. today in Rm. 3R of
the Union.
Sponsored by the American
Veterans Committee, Kutcher will g
talk on "The Real Subversives."c
Kutcher, who lost his legs,r
at St. Pietro, Italy, during thes
war.t
The discharge was based onr
his membership in the Socialist
Workers Party.-
When Kutcher's appeals to thet
VA loyalty board were denied,t
"Kutcher Civil Rights Commit-c

ies and others who have levelled
dramatic charges against the
military high command.
"To be successful in a sacrifice
he must be 100 per cent right,"
Bradley told a jam-packed hear-
ing before the House Armed Serv-
ices Committee. "To be respected,
a martyr must be completely un-
selfish in thought and motivation.
His sacrifice must be for the good
of the entire nation.
* * *
"UNDER SUCH requirements,"
he said dryly, "I see few oppor-
tunities for martyrs in this de-
fense controversy today."
In solemn tones, Bradley de-
clared that if there had been
greater teamwork within the
armed forces prior to the last
war, the catastrophe of Pearl
Harbor might never have hap-
pened.
And the lesson of Pearl Harbor,
he said, should have taught all
military men that our forces are
all one team, in the game to win
regardless of who carries the ball.
* * *
CALMLY AND GRAVELY, like
a professor lecturing a classroom,
Bradley took up the various criti-
cisms raised by the Navy against
the high command's overall de-
fense strategy.
He paid particular attention
to the Navy's belittlement of the
B-36 bomber's performance and
the effectiveness of long-range
bombing attacks.
He said that as a believer in
humanity, he "deplores" the
atomic bomb, but he said that as a
soldier he realizes that if this
country is attacked we must use it.
AND THE long-range B-36
bomber, lie said, is our "first
priority retaliator-y weapon in case
of attack."
He hinted that the Navy is in
"open rebellion" against civilian
control of the military establish-
ment, and bluntly accusedsAdmiral
Louis E. Denfeld of a "violation"
of security in disclosing opinions
of the joint chiefs of staff.
Shephard Hits
Discrimination
Prof. John F. Shephard, of the
psychology department, told the
campus Young Progressives last
night that discrimination is a re-
sult of the present economic sys-
tem but that it must be attacked
now.
"In a competitive economic sys-
tem we rationalize emotionally
that certain minority groups are
to blame for our economic diffi-
culties. We blame the Negro on
the labor level and the Jew on an-
other level," he said.
Following Prof. Shephard's
speech, the Young Progressives de-
cided to work with the Committee
to End Discrimination in the plan
to eliminate discriminatory claus-
es from all application blanks of
all schools.
The Young Progressives will
publish its own brochure on the
way such blanks may be used for
discriminatory purposes.

Truman To
Take Nourse
Resionation
See Five Billion
Deficit asLikely
WASHINGTON--(A)-President
Truman yesterday accepted the
resignation of a government foe of
deficit spending, while Congress
wrote the last dollar mark on ap-
propriations which added up to a
possible $5,000,000,000 federal def-
icit.
Truman voiced "my thanks and
my appreciation" to Dr. Edwin G.
Nourse, retiring on Nov. 1 as
chairman of the President's Coun-
cil of Economic Advisers.
* * *
HIS LETTER to "Dear Mr.
Nourse" did not mention Nourse's
criticism of the government's ex-
cursion into red ink spending. And
Nourse said he didn't aim his crit-
icism at the Truman Administra-
tion alone.
But the flare-up raised some
last-gasp cries for economy in
Congress - even while the Sen-
ate slipped into the Foreign
Arms Bill a pay boost for Sen-
ators' staffs-and won House
consent after an angry battle
of words.
The item, about $288,000, was
minor in relation to the prospec-
tive $5,000,000,000 deficit.
IN PHILADELPHIA, Economic
Cooperation Administrator Paul
G. Hoffman predicted this country
will have to go on spending $2
million a year for foreign aid af-
ter the Marshall Plan ends in
mid-1952. /
That doesn't mean the plan is
failing, Hoffman said. ECA can
be closed down on schedule, but
"special situations throughout
the world" will require American
support, he said.1
The lobbies of the capitol buzzed
with comment on Tuesday's crit-
icism of government spending ut-
tered by Dr. Nourse.
* * *
NOURSE SAID he was unhappy
to "see government slipping back
into deficits as a way of life."
He deplored also a farm pro-
gram which "pays subsidies out of
federal deficits," and had unkind
words for some business pricing
policies and some union proposals
to cut the hours of work-and
production--while keeping pay
scales up.
Yesterday Nourse told reporters
he was "surprised and distressed"
to find his words interpreted in
some accounts as an attack on the
Truman Administration. "Govern-
ment" means Congress as well, he
said, noting last year's Republican-
sponsored tax cut as one contribu-
tion to the federal deficit.
Student revot
At Bowling
Green Fizzles
By The Associated Press
A student rebellion against regu-
lations at Bowling Green State
University began fizzling late yes-
terday as a strike by part of the
studentabody died down.
The protesting group had been
pressing for sale of 3.2 beer, more
tolerance toward students by the
campus police and the abolition

of a rule which prohibits unmar-
ried coeds from riding in auto-
mobiles.
* * *
THEY ALSO demanded "com-
plete freedom of expression" for
the student newspaper and a stu-
dent government free of faculty
domination.
In a panel held yesterday af-
ternoon, attended by about 1,200
of the school's 4,600 students,
Bowling Green's president,
Frank J. Prout, and 13 students
discussed the student com-
plaints.
At this meeting the dissident'
group dropped its first three de-
mands, but stuck to its guns in
calling for the complete independ-
ence of the campus' newspaper
and student government.
By late afternoon all but about'
25 of the original 200 striking stu-
dents had returned to their classes.
Throughout the dispute spokes-
men for the student senate have
requested the students not to
strike but rather to present their
grievances through the proper

Love That Jail!
ALBANY, N.Y.-()-Back in
1921, when Joe Sullivan fin-
ished a 30-day term in Albany
County Jail on a charge of
public intoxication, hreasked
the warden if he could stay
a little longer.
Sullivan, now 65 years old,
still doesn't want to leave.
He works during the day in
the jail kitchen, and at night
is locked up with the prisoners.
Sullivan could leave anytime,
"but he doesn't like the out-
side."
S To Ask
for Sports
Board Seat
By PETER HOTTON
Student Legislature last night
passed a motion to petition the
University Regents for an ex-offi-
cio (with vote) seat on the Board
in Control of Intercollegiate Athle-
tics.
The seat would contribute to a.
closer contact between the stu-
dents, who comprise one of the
greatest supporting bodies of col-
legiate sports, and the controlling
group, which up to now has not
had true 'student representation,
Legislators declared.
AS A POSTSCRIPT to this res-
olution, SL also acted to invite
Athletic Director H. O. (Fritz)
Crisler to attend an SL meeting.
This would have two motives:
It would give Crisler a better
picture of student representa-
tives and views as well as give
SL a better concept of athletic
problems and policies, SL mem-
bers said.
In addition to inviting Crisler,
SL moved to authorize the cabinet
to invite administration personnel
to meetings to discuss better rela-
tions between students and the
administration.
DEAN OF STUDENTS Erich A.
Walter will be invited to talk in
the near future to the legislators
regarding University policies on
social contact.
Another motion, this one un-
animously passed, will authorize
SL to petition for 'a permanent
seat on the University Calendar
Committee, which schedules
class days and vacation periods
for the year.
This will be done, Legislators
explained, with an eye to ac-
quainting the Committee with stu-
dent views during the year as well
as working for a long Thanksgiv-
ing holiday weekend.
* * * .
SL ALSO APPROVED sending
an informative letter to Dean Wal-
ter telling of plans to set up a
Student Leadership Program as a
major educational value to stu-
dents both in and out of college
and requesting that the Univer-
sity provide personnel in leader-
ship assistance and presentation.
The Legislature supported a
Human Relations Program to be
set up on campus in the "near
future" and authorized it to
plan a program under SL's jur-
isdiction.
The program evolved partially
from NSA's Michigan Plan, an
anti - discrimination resolution
made national last summer.
With elections to SL and other
campus offices just around the
corner, the citizenship committee
has released a letter to all resi-
dences on open houses for cam-
paigning candidates before elec-
tions.

Pleased with the response, Dr.
Warren Forsythe, Health Service
director urged as many students
as possible to come for their shots
today. The Health Service staff
can handle more than 1,500 in-
jections daily, he said.
"Some students may suffer such
reactions as soreness of the arm,
chills, fever and generalized ach-
ing in which case they should just

Students may receive their flu

today and tomorrow and from 8

Aid Measure'
Truman Lauds
81st Legislature
By The Associated Press
Congress adjourned last night
with a pat on the back from Presi-
dent Truman and a Republican
denunciation of "Statism."
Barring an emergency requiring
a special session, the law makers
won't be back in Washington until
next Jan. 3.

BEFORE leaving Congress gave
their final approval to a high-level
farm price support bill and passed
a $1,314,010,000 appropriation to'
arm friendly nations against Com-
munism.
The farm bill was passed with a
cry of "Santa Claus" by some city
representatives. Before the House
approved the measure 175 to 34,
Rep. Fulton (Rep., Pa.) inquired
pointedly if Saint Nick wasn't one
of the authors.
Farm state members struck
back saying that the measure
would underwrite continued
prosperity for all and by no
means represent a gouge at the
city consumers.
"It is a bill to give America a
stable economy," declared Chair-
man Cooley (Dem., N.C.) of- the
House Agricultural Committee.
As worked out by a conference
committee Tuesday, the measure
makes it possible for the govern-
ment to keep the props under farm
prices at or near the current 90
per cent of parity level indefinit-
ly.
The bill went through the Sen-
ate 46 to 7, clearing away the last
big obstacle to final adjournment.

MR. TRUMAN pronounced their
achievements of this Congress
good.
"I am confident that the Ameri-
can people will agree that the re-
sults have been well worth while,"
the President said in identical let-
ters to House Speaker Rayburn
and to Vice President Barkley
House Republican leader Mar-
tin however issued a statement
saying that "the first session of
the 81st Congress will go down
in history as the tree which bent
before the gale of statism."
In its final days, Congress has
reached agreement not only on
the farm bill but on such other im-
portant legislation as a record
peacetime appropriation of $15,-
585,863,498 for the armed services,
and a boost in the minimum wage
in industry from 40 to 75 cents an
hour.

FOREIGN Affairs legislation in-
cluded extension and financing of

IGNITION PROHIBITION:
driving Ban Accepted
'Docilely Here in 1927

By DAVIS CRIPPEN
When the Driving Ban hit the
Michigan campus for the first
time in the fall of 1927 students
madly batted a new-found con-
versational ball around, a check
of The Daily files revealed.
The Daily editorialized, the Stu-
dent Council resoluted, but there
were no protest meetings, no
skipping of classes (in rebellion
against the ban, that is) as in
the current disagreement at Bowl-
