French Ask
Military Aid
From U.S.
Request Exceeds
Three Billions
WASHINGTON - (') - France
was reported to have asked the
United States yesterday to provide
a total of $3,170,000,000 in military
aid for the French armed forces
during 1951.
American officials said France
was told the request is too big but
that some money will be allocated
almost immediately.
The French also were given for-
mal assurances that the United
States is making every effort to
speed the delivery of fighting
equipment to Indo-China, where
French forces are striving to hold
off advancing Communists.
SECRETARY of Defense Mar-
shall gave these latter assurances
in conferences with two French
cabinet officers, Defense Minister
Jules Moch and Finance Minister
Maurice Petsche.
Officials said Moch made the
$3,170,000,000 request in a meet-
ing with Marshall, Secretary of
State Acheson and Treasury
Secretary Snyder.
Moch suggested that the $3,170,-
000,000 be allocated as follows:
1. About $2,100,000,000 in finish-
ed American military equipment
such as guns, tanks, and planes
which would be sent to France.
2. About $300,000,000 worth of
additional military supplies to be
allocated to French troops in In-
dochina.
3. About $770,000,000 in direct
dollar assistance to the French
treasury to help it withstand the
impact of a stepped up rearma-
ment program.
OFFICIALS WHO attended the
meeting at the State Department
said Moch also presented plans for
boosting France's present armed
strength in Europe from ten to
20 divisions at the end of 1953
with the hope this might rise. to
28 divisions.
Moch proposed, it was said, that
three new divisions be added to
the seven divisions France now
has mobilized at home and in
Western Germany.
East Berliners
Barred From
Red Zone Vote
BERLIN - (P) - Communist-
ruled East Germany, closing the
door to all opposition in carrying
out its one-ticket election Sunday,
last night barred even residents
of Soviet-occupied East Berlin
from entering the Eastern Zone
over the weekend.
East Berlin is not participating
in the election under a 1945 four-
power agreement. The city is di-
vided into four sectors, of which
the Soviet sector is one. The other
three divisions are the American,
British and French sectors; con-
stituting West Berlin.
In addition to imposing the tra-
vel ban, Russian-backed East Ger-
many ordered the East Berliners
to do a "volunteer" day's work on
election day. This is expected to
keep them busy and prevent any
possible dissidents from entering

the East Zone to interfere with
plans for a unanimous endorse-
ment of the pro-Red, handpicked
slate.
* *
THE EXTENT of anti-Red feel-
ing in East Berlin was indicated
to some degree in the recent "ra-
tion card plebiscite' held by West
Berlin city officials. A total of
375,712 residents of the eastern
sector mailed their old ration cards
to West Berlin in response to a call
for them to show in this way their
opposition to Communism. The
latest population count (1946)

Plane Nears
Wake Is land
HONOLULU - (P? - President
Truman and General Douglas
MacArthur will meet at about 1:30
p.m. today on Wake Island.
Gen. MacArthur will have been
on Wake several hours when
President Truman arrives.
* * *
BEFORE STARTINO the last
lap of his journey the .President
yesterday said, "The people behind-
the Iron Curtain are as anxious
as we are to have world peace and
to avoid another war."
The President, speaking at a
luncheon in Honolulu en route to
Wake, said: "We have to get the
truth to them, and we are going
to get it to them.
"I am not one of those people
who think another war, is inevit-
able."
* * *
LEAVING Honolulu about 4 p.m.
CST today, to;meet Gen. MacAr-
thur, the presidential party will
arrive about 1:30 p.m. today, after
a 2,300-mile flight of eight to ten
hours.
* *. *
GEN. MACARTHUR took off on
his. 1,985-mile flight of seven or
eight hours to Wake at 4:06,.m.
yesterday. He thus will arrive on
Wake several hours ahead of the
President.
Through press secretary Char-
les Ross, the President disclosed
Gen. MacArthur himself chose
Wake as the site for the im-
portant meeting.
President Truman had offered'
the general the choice of Honolulu
or Wake. Gen. MacArthur chose
Wake because it was nearer the
Korean war theater.
* * *
ADM. ARTHUR Radford, com-
mander-in-chief of the Pacific
fleet, at the same time revealed;
extraordinary measures taken to
safeguard the President on his
flight from Honolulu to Wake.
Two fast destroyer-escorts, the
Epperson and the Philip, have
been stationed between Pearl Har-
bor and Wake. Two destroyer
minesweepers, the Thompson and
Carmick, are guarding the ap-
proaches to the little atoll.

yards, warehouses, docks and
wharfs.
Unsupported speculation con-
tinued as to whether this see-
ond straight day of east coastal
blasting was the prelude to an
Allied amphibious landing or a
feint to draw Red attention
from a landing in the west.
There was no evidence of a
new Allied landing anywhere on
North Korean shores, and there
was no comment on the possibility
from anyone in Gen. Douglas
MacArthur's' Tokyo headquarters.

A SPEARHEAD of the First
Cavalry Division snared the esti-
mated 20,000 Reds when it swung
in behind them yesterday and
seized the road Junction town of.
Hanpo, 65 air miles southeast of
Pyongyang.
A spokesman for Gen. Mac-
Arthur said American infantry-
men were "cleaning up" on the
pocketed troops. He said the
fighting was fierce but that the
foot cavalrymen had the upper
hand.
From Wonsan came reports that
North Korean Communist police
killed at least 500 political pri-
soners in the last days of Red
rule, in Wonsan, according to
some of those who escaped the
slaughter.

General's Aide
Predicted War
TOKYO - 01) - General Mac-
Arthur's intelligence chief said
early this morning he sent a re-
port to the Army in Washington
predicting the. Communist in-
vasion. of South Korea three
months in advance.
Maj. Gen. Charles A. Willough-
by told the Associated Press he
notified the Army department in
Washington on March 10:
"Report received that People's
(Communist) Army will invade
South Korea in June." The in-
vasion began June 25.
This was the second warning
against full attack which the
North Korean Reds apparently
postponed.
A report from Willoughby's of-
fice last Jan. 5 said:
"The North Korean government
has set March and April as the
time to invade."
There was no indication of
what-if any-action was taken
on these warnings.

Ruling Cuts
Auto Sales
Time_ Limit
Hike Appliance
Down Payments
WASHINGTON-(A)-The Fed-
eral Reserve Board last night or-
dered a sharp tightening, effective
Monday, of the consumer credit
curbs it laid down less than a
month ago.
The tightening up order:
Cuts the payoff limit on install-
ment purchases of automobiles
from 21 to 15 months, while leav-
ing the cash-down payment 'at
one-third of the price. The new
rules equal the stiffest World War
II terms on automobiles.
Jumps the down payment on
television sets, radios and ma-
jor household appliances from
15 to 25% and cuts the payoff
time from 18 months to 15. .
Raises the down payment on
furniture from 10 to 15%, and cuts
the payoff limit from 18 months
to 15.
* e e *
IN ADDITION, the board ap-
plied the down-payment require-
ments to all regulated articles
costing $50 or more. The initial
terms, fixed Sept. 18, had egppt-
ed articles costing up to $100.
The board also required that
installment loans granted to
purchase any of the articles sub-
ject to controls be subjected to
the same limits as applied to in-
stallment sales of those articles.
Further, it reduced the payoff
limit from 18 to 15 months for in-
stallment loans granted to pur-
chase articles not subject to con-
trols.
* * ,
TERMS ON GOODS other than
automobiles will still be below the
wartime maximums, which called
for a 12-month payoff and down
payments of 20% on furniture and
one-third on the other articles.
The household appliances af-
fected are refrigerators, food
freezers, phonographs, cooking
stoves, ranges, dish washers,
ironers, washing machines, sew-
ing machines, clothes dryers,
vacuum cleaners, air condition-
ers and dehumidifiers.
* * *
RESERVE BOARD Chairman
Thomas McCabe said the action
was based upon consideration of
reports from "all parts of the
country" showing "continued up-
ward pressures on prices in the
five weeks" since the Board an-
nounced that credit controls were
to be reimposed Sept. 18.
"While the intensity of these
pressures on the market varies
somewhat from time to time, the
fact remains that the underlying
inflationary forces are unabated
and have been augmented by the
continuing growth of bank cred-
it, as well as credit in specific
a r e a s, including installment
credit," he said.
The phrasing indicated that the
board might soon take another
anti-inflation step by raising re-
serve requirements of its member
banks.

Hooper Out
As Counsel
For Stacy
By RON WATTS
Joseph Hooper, the attorney who
was appointed Thursday to repre-
sent Robert Stacy, stepped out of
the case yesterday when he learn-
ed Stacy had set fire to a church
of which Hooper is an officer.
Hooper, vice-president of the
First Methodist Church board of
trustees, said -he resigned as Sta-
cy's attorney because "it might
prove embarrassing later in view
of Stacy's admission that he set
fire to a davenport in the church
last March."

Marshall Tito
Will Ask U.S.
Economic Aid
BELGRADE, Yugoslavia-(I)-
Premier Marshall Tito officially
notified United States Ambassador
George V. Allen yesterday that
Yugoslavia soon will seek econo-
mic aid from the U.S. to prevent
a famine in this country.
Tito called Ambassador Allen for
a long discussion of Yugoslavia's
plight, resulting from one of the
most serious droughts in the coun-
try's history.
Responsible Western officials
have estimated that Yugoslavia
lost about $100,000,000 worth of
crops, chiefly corn and wheat.
These sources figured Yugoslavia
will need, as a bare minimum, at
least $50,000,000 worth of food-
stuffs to avoid widespread hunger
in the coming months.
It was not clear after today's
conference whether Yugoslavia
would apply for a loan to pay its
grocery bill or ask for a non-re-
payable grant-in-aid. A grant re-
quires congressional approval as a
rule.

est metropolis, supporters of the
Maize and Blue are setting the big
town up on its end.
The cry of upset is on every lip
as the throngs, 31,000 strong, be-
decked with Wolverine pennants
prepare to swarm Yankee Stadi-
um. "We can do it," is a typical
Wolverine chant. This afternoon
will tell the story.
Michigras has moved to New
York. Partying was the first item
on the agenda last night as
Michiganders made merry with-
out fear of distrubing the city's
water supply.
Meanwhile the forty men who
carry the hopes of thousands of
Michigan men from coast to
coast; spent a restful night at the
Concourse Plaza, a few short
blocks from the Stadium.
The men of Michigan go into
this game in tip-top condition. In
an. interview last night, Benny
Oosterbaan reported that Chuck
Ortmann, Al Wahl, Tom Johnson
and Tony Momson recent suffer-
ers from game injuries will be
ready for full time duty today.
Yes, the.stage is set for an up-
set and the hopes of the cheering
throngs who will pack the stadium
at 2:00 p.m. this afternoon are
all for the Maize and Blue grid-
ders.
Spirit, a. factor so sadly lack-
ing among Michigan rooters this
season is present in the big town,
and the colors and chants of "The
Victors" are overshadowing even
the magnificent cadet corp.
Every fan is hopeful and the
song rings out all over the city.
"Michigan expects its varsity to
win today."

Ortmann Will
Get Starting Nod
By BILL BENTON
Associate Sports Editor
Michigan's Mighty Wolverines
take to the turf of Yankee Sta-
dium at 2 p.m. today against the
powerful Black Knights of Army.
The stakes are high for Coach
Bennie Oosterbaan's Maize and
Blue charges, but the odds against
them are also great.
MICHIGAN HAS never defeated
an Army football team; the Ca-
dets are riding a 22-game victory
wave, and the Black Knights were
the team that snapped Michigan's
25-game winning game last sea-
son.
These are the thoughts run-
ning through 40 inspired Wol-
verines as they enter Yankee
Stadium today to face the na-
tios top team, the- United
States Military Academy.
Army mentor Earl "Red" Blaik
has assembled one of the best Ca-
det teams in years at the Point
in. an attempt to break the con-
secutive victory string of 26 set
by Cornell. He has only Michigan
and four lesser lights blocking his
path.
MORE THAN 500 cheering stu-
dents bid the Michigan gridders
luck as they left their Ann Arbor
campus yesterday for the eastern
areas.
Big question mark, of course,
is a 21-year-old blond from
Milwaukee who is pegged as
"Mr. Michigan" by sportswriters
the country over. Chuck Ort-
mann, a sure-fire cinch to cop
All-American honors this sea-
son, was injured in the opening
game against Michigan State
and has not played since.
The absence of their stellar tail-
back the key position in Michi-
gan's single wing offense, has re-
duced the Maize and Blue attack
to a shadow of its former "Master

the Big Ten's total offense leader
the last two years, sat on the side-
lines while his mates lost to Mich-

IN HIS ABSENSE, Bill Putich
and the revitalized Leo Koceski
have provided offensive punch,
but the Wolverine attack still has
lacked real effectiveness. Popular
opinion reigns that Michigan must
have its ace tailback to upset the
Black Knights.
With Ortmann a sure starter
it's a cinch that Coach Bennie
Oosterbaan will have his veteran
