-Daily-Wally Barth
FDR, JR.-The son of the late President airs his views on govern-
mental affairs to Roma Lipsky, Daily night editor. Roosevelt
was interviewed at the Willow Run Airport, where he stopped off
between planes yesterday.
Roosevelt Condemns GOP
Delaying1Tactics in Conges

By ROMA LIPSKY
Republican congressmen tried to
talk Administration's legislative
program to death, Rep. Franklin
Roosevelt (Dem., -N.Y.) told The
Daily yesterday.
The late president's son was in-
terviewed at Willow Run Airport
just before he boarded a plane for
New York.
HE CALLED the biggest obsta-
cle during the 81st Congress the
"continual attempts by Republi-
cans to prolong debate on each
measure, thereby cutting down on
the number of things that could
bedone."
SL Member
Calls Election
Candidates
The November elections may be
doomed to mediocrity this year if
more students don't petition for
Student Legislature, was the warn-
ing of SL elections chairman Bill
Clark.
"There must be more candidates
tohcompete for the 25 Legislature
seats or we will have a poor elec-
tion," he said.
PETITIONS will still be avail-
able from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Monday
and Tuesday at the Administra-
tion Building Lobby, he said. They
must be returned by Wednesday,
he added.
Meanwhile, 13 more students
have picked up petitions, raising
the total to 77; eight for SL, three
for J-Hop Committee, two for
Board in Control of Intercollegiate
Athletics and one for Board in
Control of Student Publications.
: SL PETITIONERS were: George
Qua, '52; Walt Hansen, '50; Rich-
ard William Duerr, '50E; William
O'Dell, '52E; Chuck Eattaway,
'52; Joanne Stoller, '50; Larry De-
Vore, '51.
J-Hop petitioners were: Doug-
las Mooney, Beverly Fullerton,
Charles Norwood.
Board in Control of Intercolle-
giate Athletics: Al Wahl, '51; Walt
# Hansen, '50.
Board in Control of Student
Publications: Paul Rider, Grad.
Scientist Gives
Atom Warning
CHICAGO-UP)--One of Amer-
ica's top atomic scientists declared

Roosevelt predicted that when
Congress reconvenes the main
fight will be over Civil Rights
legislation.
"The problem here is of getting
the cart before thehorse," he said.
"In this case, the cart is the
Civil Rights Legislation, and the
horse is the senate filibuster rule.
We don't get anywhere on the leg-
islation until the filibuster rule is
amended."
THE YOUNG congressman, only
one of the late president's sons to
enter the political arena, said he
had no comment on the proposed
Federal Aid to Education bill "at
this time."
"I probably will have some-
thing to say on that at the next
congressional session," he add-
ed.
Roosevelt, who spoke in Detroit
Thursday night- on "Israel as a
Nation," is returning to New York
to campaign for former Gov. Her-
bert Lehman, Democratic candi-
date for the Senate.
* * *
HE DENIED RUMORS that he
intended to run for governor of
New York, saying:
"I am not a candidate for any
office except that I hope my con-
gressional district will send me
back to Washington next year."
Roosevelt also gave his support
to Council President George Ed-
wards, who is running for Mayor
of Detroit.
'Boomerang' Here
"Boomerang," a movie about an
honest lawyer who seeks the ac-
quittal of a man suspected of mur-
dering a priest, will be shown

ganization throughout the country
is now nearly completed. Solicita-
tion of special gifts will be carried

Terming it "the most impor-
tant undertaking in the history
of the University," President
Ruthven said he is convinced
it is more in the American tra-
dition to seek private rather

This is a departure from the
usual University policy against
fund raising.

Homecoming Color Draws Crowds

By PAUL BRENTLINGER
Big-time football, colorful dec-
orations and gala social events
have lured thousands of visitors
to Ann Arbor for another home-
coming weekend.
The influx of football fans be-
gan last night, as fraternity houses
booted junior members from their
bunks to make room for brothers
from Minnesota.
ALL LOCAL hotels reported that
they were filled to capacity for.
the weekend. In most cases, all
Convicted
Communists
Sentenced
Eleven Given Prison
Terms,_$10,000 Fines
NEW YORK - ()P) - Ten of the
11 top Communists in America,
branded a menace to their coun-
try, were sent to prison for five
years yesterday and fined $10,000
each.
The 11th, Robert G. Thompson,
a decorated Pacific war hero, got
off with three years and a $10,000
fine.
The defendants, held without
bail since their conviction a week
ago yesterday, were returned to
jail.
* * *
FEDERAL JUDGE Harold R.
Medina pronounced the sentences
and again refused bail.
Within an hour after court ad-
journed, notices of appeal from
conviction and sentence were filed.
It was the first step in a post-
trial legal battle that may finally
end before the U.S. Supreme
Court.
The party leaders were convict-
ed of conspiring to advocate the
violent overthrow of the U.S. gov-
ernment. *
U.S. ATTORNEY John F. X.
McGohey pleaded for 10 year pris-
on sentences.
But Federal Judge Medina
held that a change in the Smith
act, under which they were con-
victed, made five years the limit.
"If it wasn't for this change in
the statute," the court said, "I
would be thinking in terms of
more than five years."
THE DEFENDANTS sentenced
to five years were:
Eugene Dennis, 44, general sec-
retary of the Communist Party
and one of its world leaders;
Henry Winston, 35, organiza-
tional secretary;
John Williamson, 46, labor sec-
retary;
Carl Winter, 43, Michigan
state chairman;

rooms had been reserved for sev-
eral months.
Even Ypsilanti hotels were
jammed with the homecoming
crowd. I
Some 1300 fans will arrive on
seven special trains coming into
the city on New York Central
lines today. Other special trains
run by the Ann Arbor Railroad
will help swell the ranks of visi-
tors.

ICC Curta ils
Rail1 Service
By The Associated Press
The government ordered a. cut
in coal burning railroad passenger
service yesterday after deadlocked
contract talks affecting nearly two
thirds of the strikebound coal
industry collapsed.
The Interstate Commerce Com-
mission ordered the reduction ef-
fective at midnight, Tuesday, Oct.
25. It will continue in effect two
months.
Coal burning passenger locomo-
tives on all railroads in the na-
tion that have a 25 or less days
coal supplysonhand were ordered
to curtail service 25 per cent.
The ICC said railroad coal stocks
had reached a "dangerously low
level." Jt added that "an emer-
gency exists requiring immediate
action in all sections of the coun-
try."

eager voices joined in singing'
Michigan fight songs.
Traffic played second fiddle
as thousands of keyed-up men
and women claimed the middle
of the road during their march
to the field.
Torches and flares threw flick-
ering shadows across students
massed around the speakers' plat-
form.
The announcement "no speak-
ers tonight" drew cheers of ap-
proval.
* * *
DON GREENFIELD of the Wol-
verine Club and fiery cheer lead-
res combined their efforts to lead
the throng in cheers and songs.
As the tumult increased it
seemed as if spirits of the Little
Brown Jug had filled the atmos-
phere to add to student gaiety.
The Wolverine Club was unable
to get speakers because of late ap-
proval of the rally by the Student
Affairs Committee, according to
Greenfield.
THREAT OF RAIN was respon-
sible for the lack of a public ad-
dress system.
The committee had consid-
ered banning rallies because
of thebsnake dancing through
women's dormitories which oc-
curred after the Army Oep rally.
There were no snake dances last
night nor were there any disturb-
ances reported from any of the
women's dormitories.

the afternoon, outside work on
the displays went on at full speed.
Two carloads of judges will tour
the city this morning to choose
which of the displays will win
prizes.
* *.*
ANNOUNCEMENT of the win-
ners will be made during the foot-
ball game on the stadium's public
address system, and trophies will
be awarded tonight at the Home-;
coming Dance.
The dance, which climaxes
the activities of homecoming
weekend, will be held from 9
p.m. to 1 a.m. tonight at the In-
tramural building.
Nick Stuart and his orchestra,
long-time favorites with Chicago
dancers, will play for the dance.
Tickets cost $3.00 a couple.
MAMMOTH cartoons which sat-
irize the homecoming-display
building activities will decorate the
IM building for the occasion, along
with witty posters leftover from
displays.
Change Made
In Coed Hours
Special 1:30 a.m. permission will
be extended to all University wom-
en on the nights of late permission
dances under a new rule passed by
housing representatives earlier
this week.
It supersedes the old ruling
which allowed the extra time only
to women attending special 1 a.m.
dances. Now all women may stay
out until 1:30 a.m. whether or not
they attended the dance.
PROPOSED by the Women's
Judiciary Council with the ap-
proval of the Dean of Women, the
new regulation was carried by at
least a three-fourths vote of the
League Council, Board of Repre-
sentatives, which is composed of
women's campus housing unit rep-
resentatives.
The new ruling, however, will
not extend the 12:25 calling hours
deadline and all dances not re-
ceiving special permission approval
from the Student Affairs Commit-
tee will still end at midnight.

Battle Draws
Full Stadium
Minnesota Aims
For Rose Bowl
By PRES HOLMES
(Sports Co-Editor)
It's do-or-die for the Wolverines
this afternoon as they take on the
gallopin' Golden Gophers from
Minnesota in the Game of the
Week.
The Maize and Blue have two
consecutive losses and face the
worst season in a decade if they
don't find their winning ways to-
day.
THE GOPHERS have definite
ambitions of capturing the Rose
Bowl bid and will be out to prove
that they should get the chance
by taking the Wolverines to the
task at 2:00 this afternoon n the
Michigan Stadium.
Michigan, placed in the role
of the underdog for the first
time in 30 games, is not con-
cerned with the post-season
classic, being ineigible to com-
Pete, and have moerely set their
sights on making it seven
straight wins from the North-
men.
A triumph over the Gophers
would give Michigan a definite
shot at a tie for the Conference
Crown too, since they have lost
only one league game. A loss * to-
day will completely eliminate
them.
MINNESOTA would be almost a
sure-thing to take the blue rib-
bon should they down the Wolver-
ines today. They have already
thumped Northwestern and Ohio
State-considered to be the top
contenders for the title along with
Michigan-and have comparative-
ly smooth sailing from here on in
meeting Purdue, Iowa, and Wis-
consin.
The experts pick Minnesota to
win by 13 points. This estimate,
of course, is based on previous
performances this year. In a,
traditional battle of this kind,
as has been proven before, it's
not safe to go by anything' thats
happened in the past.
In practice sessions this w.eek
the Wolverines have looked to be
in the greatest and most favorable
frame of mind in many-a-day. If
will-to-win has anything to do
with the outcome of today's game
Michigan would seem to be in a
favorable position.
* * *
THE GOPHERS, of course, have
been pointing towards this contest
as the "big one." Too many things
depend on the outcome of this
battle for Minnesota to afford to
lose. The Conference Champion-
ship (their first since 1941), the
Rose Bowl bid, the Brown Jug,
and the first victory over the Wol-
verines in seven games are the
main things the Gophers will have
in mind when they take the field
this afternoon.
The Northmen seem to be in
perfect physical condition for
the game, while the Wolverines
have run into a series of injur-
ies which threatens to seriously
jeopardize Michigan's chances
of a victory.
The leading ground-gainer of
the Wolverines, Leo Koceski, is a
very doubtful starter, having suf-
fered anribtinjury in practice this
week. Center Bob Erben also was
injured and it is unlikely that he
will see any action this afternoon
either.

THE ONE BRIGHT spot in the
cloud surrounding the physical
condition of Michigan's gridders
is Charlie Ortmann. He has thor-
oughly recovered from the injury
he suffered in the Army game and
should be ready for extensive duty
against Minnesota.
The Wolverines face the
heaviest and most highly re-
garded line in the country to-
day. Spearheaded by center
Clayton Tonnemaker (246) and
tackle Leo Nomellini (255), both
