'U'Regent, Dies
Regent Ralph A. Hayward, Kalamazoo industrialist, died late yes-

Hayward who was admitted to the hospital Jan. 3 underwent a
brain operation the following day in an effort to relieve intra-cranial
pressure. The 55-year-old regent never regained consciousness fol-
lowing the operation.

Vatican Bans
Clergy From
Catholic clergymen were forbid-
den yesterday to belong to Rotary
clubs and Catholic laymen were
warned to follow canon law in re-
gard to membership.
The ban was disclosed with pub-
lication by the Vatican's news-
paper, L'Osservatore Ramano, of
a decree by the Supreme Sacred
Congregation of the Holy Office,
which Pope Pius XII heads.
* * *
THE REASONS were not stated.
Spokesmen of Rotary Internation-
al indicated they were mystified.
However, a source connected
with the newspaper said the de-
cree appeared aimed at Euro-
pean and Latin American coun-
tries, where Masonic connec-
tions have been attributed to
Rotary, rather than against
Catholic membership in Rotary-
in the United States.
Rotary president Arthur La-
gueux, a Canadian investment
banker of Quebec who is him-
self a Roman Catholic, said "Ro-
tary's universal appeal is that itj
offers a practical means of en-
larging one's friendship, partici-
pating in community betterment
undertakings, promoting high
standards in business and profes-
sional life and advancing inter-
national understanding, good will
and peace."

Leonard H. Young, attorney for'
convicted arsonist Robert Stacy,
announced yesterday that he will
take definite action on the for-

sentence by Monday.
"I have not decided whether to
appeal the case to the state Su-
preme Court or ask for a retrial,
but I will have made up my mind
by the week's end," Young said.
He also noted that he might ap-
peal to the court to have Stacy
released on bond at that time.
Meanwhile Stacy remained in

serve his five to 10 year sentence.

"The University has profited

be studied fully.

"like an ultimatum" and declared
that it could not serve as a basis

Seen Possible
Hancock, special consultant to the
Economic Stabilization Agency,
said yesterday he is considering a
formula that would permit auto-
mobile companies to raise their
prices "in some cases."
But he made it clear, after hear-
ing all-day testimony from 10
companies, that the formula has
not yet been drafted. He added
that he didn't mean there would
"necessarily" be price increases.
Questioned closely by reporters,
he said smilingly that he was not
trying to be "cagey" but "we are
talking about a formula that I
haven't written yet."

New Policy
Planned for
WASHINGTON - (P) - Presi-
dent Truman is about to set forth
a new national manpower policy
for the mobilization emergency,
calling for conservation of man-
power resources all along the line,
a defense official said yesterday.
Mrs. Anna M. Rosenberg, As-
sistant Secretary of Defense, dis-
closed the directive would be is-
sued in a few days.
IT WOULD call upon each group
to consider its own needs against
overall manpower requirements
of mobilization.
M r s. Rosenberg, brought to
government service a few weeks
ago as a manpower expert, de-
clined to give reporters details
about the manpower mobiliza-
tion policy. She mentioned it
briefly in testimony before the
Senate Preparedness Subcom-
mittee which is studying the De-
fense Department's proposals for
draft of 18-year olds and uni-
versal training.
JOHN D. ADAMS, the depart-
ment's assistant general counsel,
testified also that failure to take
18-year olds might require draft-
ing about 200,000 college students
next summer.
Meanwhile the army proposes to
increase its draft calls by 50,000
men because of casualties in
This was disclosed yesterday by
a Defense Department official, who
said the additional call, suggested
to the department, had not yet
been served on selective service.

to the Council by Prof. A. D.
Moore chairman of the city com-
mittee on ordinances at the Jan.
2 meeting. An earlier public meet-
ing had been swamped with pro-
tests from University representa-
tives against passage of an amend-
ment that would seemingly have
changed the status of group dwell-
ings in existing zones,
Prof. Moore's amendment would
change the definitions of fraterni-
ty and sorority dwellings so that
they would no longer be considered
single or two-family units. They
would be prohibited from enter-
ing or expanding into zones A or
AA, but proposed A-1 district pro-
vides for fraternity and sorority
The area proposea for A-1
(see map) lies roughly between
Forest and Oswego Streets and
Geddes and Cambridge Road. It
includes approximately 42 fra-
ternities and sororities, which
would be free of any red tape
that would have been involved
had the original amendment
been adopted.
Not so fortunate are eight fra-
ternities that are located outside
of the proposed zone. These are:
Phi Sigma Delta, Zeta Beta Tau,
Delta Sigma Phi, Tau Delta Phi,
Acacia, Alpha Epsilon Pi, Gamma
Alpha (graduate) and Psi Omega
These groups will remain in dis-
tricts A and AA as non-conform-
ing units. Eastman explained that
a non-conforming unit is permit-
ted to continue in operation unless
discontinued for 90 days. Owners
of non-conforming property may
maintain their property, but must
obtain permission of a Board of
Appeals before they can carry out
any expansion.
He noted that the 90-day per-
iod can also be appealed.
"As this appeal system would
have existed under the original
zoning amendment, it seems to
me that a lot of people got all ex-
cited about losing their homes

Reference to Prof. Dawson as a
possible appointee was recently
made by Doris Fleeson, columnist
for the New York Post, and also'
by Danton Walker, newspaper

On campus, several of Prof.
Dawson's close associates felt that

Prof. Dawson's Democratic affili-

Prof. Dawson could not be

fact that two other Democratic

rise to further speculation.

No Date Set;
Cut in Prices
Not Forseen
President Won't
Predict Rollback
WASHINGTON - () -- Presi-
dent Truman said yesterday that
wages and prices will be controlled
as soon as possible but he declined
to predict a rollback of prices.
Asked at his new conference
whether consumer costs will be
forced down to some previous le-
vel, Truman said he would havk
to cross that bridge when he got
to it.
TRUMAN would not say wheth-
er he will ask Congres to amend
the defense production act, which
forbids placing a ceiling at a level
below parity on some important
The President gave no indica-
tion when controls will be i-
posed but he said they are on
the way.
T h e government Wednesday
gave up the idea' of a temporary
across-the -board price freeze on
business firms as a stopgap device
pending preparations for setting
up controls with the machinery
to supervise them.
Opponents of the temporary
freeze argued that it would not be
feasible because the government
hasn't yet got the setup to en-
force it. Backers of the plan held
that the current wave-of price in-
creases is so alarming as to make
action necessary.
IN HIS news conference Tru-
man also declared he has the au-
thority to send troops to Europe
or anywhere else he thinks they're
needed-and he threatened to
carry the question to the Ameri-
can people if Congress tries to stop
him. He said, however, that he
will consult with gongressional
leaders before he sends more U.S.
soldiers to Europe.
Truman's remarks, made un-
der brisk cross-questioning, add-
ed up to a flat rejection of the
stand taken 'by Senator Taft
(R-Ohio) ' that the President
must get Congress' consent be-
fore putting American soldiers
in the new Western European
Defense Force.
He also told his .news confer-
1-GEN. Douglas MacArthur,
contrary to some published re-
ports, has not recommended that
United Nations forces be with-

Arthur has been "muzzled" by
Washington to prevent his speak-
ing publicly about Korea.
2-The White House door is al-
ways open to Taft or any other
