Old-time Staffers Meet
As, Daily Hits 60th. Year

The Daily's past is showing.
Alumni who remember when the

reportsed only local news began to

celebrate their old paper's 60th

PRESENT staff members re-
garded them with curiosity and
paused from their reunion prep-
arations to ask: "When were you
here?" This question launched a
flow of memories about the Daily
staffs of yore.
Many of the alumni had never
seen the Publications Building
before and exclaimed that days

DETROIT - -(R) - A state-
wide strike of the Michigan Bell
Telephone Co. was threatened yes-
terday for Nov. 6.
The CIO Communications
Workers of America said its 16,00
members would walk out at ex-
changes in 104 cities and villages
unless a contract dispute is settled
in the next month.
The strike threat followed union
rejection of a company offer
which would have provided raises
of up to $5 a week. Herbert F.
Lange, Michigan Bell vice-presi-
dent, said the offer was "very fair
to employes."

three divisions were advancing
against light opposition.
A cloak of military secrecy
was wrapped around the re-
grouping movements of most UN
forces-but a spokesman for
Gen. MacArthur said that this
did not mean necessarily that
the big push was imminent.
There were many indications
that the remnants of the Red
army would make a last ditch
stand. Supply convoys have been
reported rolling into North Korea
from Manchuria. One was re-
ported heading eastward toward
Wonsan. Other supply caravans
were spotted on roads leading
south from the Communist capital
of Pyongyang toward the 38th
parallel boundary.

ALLIED PLANES blasted these
convoys day and night as supply
lines on both coasts were being
bombarded by American, British,
Australian, Canadian and French
warships which were operating in
the dangerously mined waters.
Meanwhile, American Marines
and the U. S. Seventh Division
continued advances north from

this sector were about 15 miles
south of the border and out of

quarters in Tokyo announced that
the North Koreans had suffered

Daily City Editor
Michigan editors last night
heard the president of the Ameri-
can Society of Newspaper Editors
sharply criticize modern news-
papers for their "carelessness, in-
difference and lack of initiative."
Dwight Young, editor and pub-
lisher of the Dayton Journal-
Herald, expressed this view at a
banquet held by the University
Press Club of Michigan, now hold-
Press Club
Hears Panel
Doctors Discuss
Medical Progress
"The atomic age has given a
feeling of insecurity to many
children that necessitates closer
bonds between the members of
the family," Dr. Ralph Rabino-
vitch, professor of psychiatry, said
Dr. Rabinovitch was a member
of a panel which discussed "Ad-
vances in Medical Science" yes-
terday in Rackham Amphitheatre
before members of the University
Press Club. The panel discussion
was part of the three-day pro-
gram comprising the 33rd annual
meeting of the Press Club.
Dr. Rabinovitch claimed that 80
per cent of the juvenile delin-
quents could be rehabilitated if
we had the proper facilities.
"Much of the work in this field
is being held up because of lack of
funds," he said.
In a discussion of the uses of
antihistamines, Dr. John Sheldon
noted that "as far as we know, a
University faculty member was the
first person in the world to take
an antihistamine substance."
Dr. Sheldon, professor of in-
ternal medicine, said that the an-
tihistamine effect on the common
cold was only to relieve some of

s " s
YOUNG described the mainte-
nance of "an efficient, intelligent
and hard-hitting editorial staff"
as the toughest problem facing
present day editors. He suggested
a careful, periodic check of staff
member's merits as a means of
meeting this problem.
The Dayton . editor . blamed
such things as excessive con-
cern over a 40-hour week an(I
overtime pay for the flaws of
today's newspapers. He contrast-
ed today's reporters with the old
timer who wanted only the "op-.
portunity to' demonstrate to the
boss and to himself that he had
what it took to succeed."
A firm believer in personal jour-
nalism, Young disapproved of
those papers which frown on any
expression of personality by mem-
bers of their own staffs. "Yet these
same papers will carry such per-
sonalized columns as those writ-
ten by Pegler, Winchell and Pear-
son without batting an eyelash,"
he said.
PUTTING his views into prac-
tice, Young himself writes a col-
umn three times a week for the
Journal-Herald. Although his pa-
per is owned by a former Demo-
cratic governor of Ohio, Young de-
clared that his column "has a slant

An expected breather might turn
into a major gridiron battle for
Michigan's Wolverines this after-
noon when they seek the scalps
of the Dartmouth Indians and
their first victory of the 1950 sea-
Some 75,000 fans, including a
host of high school bands and stu-
dents, are expected to witness the
tussle, the first between the two
teams. Proceedings in the Sta-
dium will begin at 2:00 p.m., with
the weather expected to be cloudy
and warmer.
FOR THE invading Indians it's
the big game of the season and
they go into the fray with little to
lose and a lot of prestige to pick
up if they can knock the perenial
kingpins of the Big Ten.
For Michigan the contest is.

poor showing against Michigan

terrific passing attack featuring
their quarterback, Johnny Clay-
ton, and the game could turn into
an aerial duel between him and
Michigan's Bill Putich.
Clayton has been one of the
brightest stars in Dartmouth's
long.gridiron history. He was
fifth in the nation last year
Last week against Holy Cross
he had 12 of 21 for 105 yards.
Included were his 20th and 21st
touchdown passes of his college
career. Along with him, are three
other experienced backfield per-
TWO OF these are from Michi-

Ivy League last season.
In the Wolverine camp Oos-
terbaan expressed the belief that
he would string along with the
same backfield combination that
played most of the State game.
This will mean that the Wol-
verines will probably continue
operating more from the "T" for-
mation to make full use of Putich's
passing. There is also a possibility
