Of course, not all disabled vet
will be able to attend. Officials
from the three hospitas contacted
yesterday said a number of the
men would be grateful fcr thE

IN 1946, THE DAILY made a
similar appeal to students, faculty
and administration for tickets to
that year's Army game. The Uni-

had a heart to such an extent that

put out by men in the hospital de-
voted an issue to "texend our grat-
itude to the students of the U of
At. that time, the request for
tickets had to overcome several
The request was turned down at
first because tickets are tax ex-
empt and the Athletic board said
they couldn't get government au-
thority to transfer them.
The board later reversed their
decision after The Daily and the
American Veteran's Committee
had secured the approval of the
Bureau of Internal Revenue.

ADA To Orgnaize
Three years ago, the editors of The Daily appealed
to students, faculty members, and alumni to turn in their
football tickets for the Army-Michigan football game.
The tickets were to be given to World War II con-
valescents at Percy Jones General Hospital, Battle Creek.
Although the Army game was billed as the top
game of the year, the response was overwhelming and
hundreds of tickets poured into The Daily offices. Legal
technicalities were quickly overcome and a group of de-
serving herpes saw the game of their lives.
But this is 1949. The war has been over for four
years and the sacrifices that these men made have begun
to fade in our memories.
This Saturday, however, presents an opportunity for
all of us-students, faculty, and alumni-to show the
disabled veterans that they have not been forgotten.
Again, The Daily is making an appeal for tickets for
the disablecfveterans in three nearby hospitals. Although
the University Athletic Office has sent many complimen-
tary passes to these hospitals, the demand for Army-
Michigan tickets far exceeds the supply.
All available tickets can be turned into the Student
Office of the Union between 3 and 5 p.m. daily or the
Senior Editorial Office of The Daily after 1 p.m. today.
Those who contribute their student books or single
non-student tckets will be given a receipt. All student
books will be returned promptly.
To start the ball rolling, the Daily senior staff has
contributed its tickets to the vets.

covering the Communist trial in New
By ROMA LIPSKY
One of the most interesting as-
pects of the Communist trial is
the long-faced, blacked-robed man
occupying the Judge's chair -
Harold R. Medina.
In an age when Federal Judges
have moved from the position of
inconspicuous mediators of jus-
tice to subjects of front page head-
lines, Medina stands out as one
of the most colorful and contro-
versial men of the day.
* * *
MANY TIMES during the day's
proceedings the judge rather than
the witness is the center of at-
traction, for Medina is no passive
observer. One court room obser-
ver, commenting on the judge's
air for the dramatic, summed up
the trial as an affair where
"everybody wants to get into the
act, especially the judge."
He takes copious notes on the
proceedings, and when the word-
ing of a previous question or
response is under discussion, it
is often Medina rather than the
court stenographer who can sup-
ply the exact phraseology.
Frequently the judge takes over
the task of questioning the witness
on the stand.
THIS PART OF his court-room
behavior has brought sharp criti-
cism from the defense table, the
"Daily Worker," and the Com-
This, plus direct criticism from
the defense lawyers, who are con-

tone in his voice as being detri-
