stage yesterday in work of the
agencies assigned to keep the
economy on an even keel in the
period of mobilization.
The hopes of the Wage Board
(WSB) were reported by Peter
Seitz, special assistant to WSB
chairman Cyrus S. Ching, in
testhnony to the Senate-House
"watchdog" committee which
keeps tab on operation of the
Defense Production Act.
The hearing also produced a re-
port, quickly thrown down by
Ching, that he was stepping out
of the WSB post yesterday.
MEANWHILE President William
Green of the American Federation
of Labor complained last night
that the nation's workers are un-
fairly burdened in the fight
against inflation.
With his letter, the labor lead-
er submitted a memorandum on
the views of the federation re-
garding national economic poli-
cies. He called for "a new and
workable price control law which
will permit effective stabiliza-
tion of the cost of living."
On the price front, OPS direc-
tor Michael V. Disalle was under-
stood to have ordered a fast deci-
sion on a raw cotton price aimed
both to appease southern senators
who have demanded full decon-
trol, and to head off sharp rise in
clothing costs.

'' Job - Rea
Full responsibility for "polic-
ing" fraternity and sorority props
erty maintenance cannot be
placed on the shoulders of the
University, Dean Walter Rea,
chairman of the University hous-
Ing committee, said yesterday.
D e a n Rea was answering
charges made by Paul R. Kempf,
' president of the city Board of
Public Works that certain groups
have abused state and local build-
ing codes by inadequate fire pre-
vention devices, overcrowding andi
poor maintenance.

IN PART Dean Rea agreed with
TKempf. He admitted that many
groups have been lax in keeping
their properties at their best ap-
* pearance.
But he noted that an inspec-
tion is made each semester by
the University to see that prop-
er precautions are taken against
fire and unsanitary conditions.

Setomer McGuire
Get 10 Days, Fine
Ex-Student Bookies To Pay $250;
Placed on Two Years Probation.
Two former University students, Lee 'Setomer and Robert Mc-
Guire yesterday were finled $250 a piece and sentenced to ten days'
in the Washtenaw County Jail for operating a football pool on campus
last fall.
Each of the men faced a maximum penalty of one year in jail
or a $500 fine.

,James R. Breakey, immediately after it was imposed.
The arrest and conviction of Setomer and McGuire were the

On All Year
War Basis
dent John A. Hannah announced
yesterday that Michigan State
College will go on a year-around
war-time basis.'
Hannah said the stepped-up'
educational program was asked'
by defense officials anxious to
have college graduates available'
for military service or defense
jobs a year sooner than under thej
present setup.

UNDER THE new plan, high
school graduates will be able to
qualify for bachelor's degrees in
three years instead of four as at
Greatest immediate impact
of the new program, Hannah
said, will be the enrollment of
a large number of high school
graduates for the summer quar-
The MSC president said studies
are underway to determine what
courses will be offered, how many
faculty members will be needed
and what provisions must be
made to accomodate the students
on the campus.
He said the college had ap-
proved the plan despite the many
difficulties involved in operating
12 months a year.
"Defense officials have recog-
nized the importance of American
colleges and universities in the
race to rearm," he said. "They
must use their facilities to the
limit in serving the national in-

football pools which were pub-
lished in the paper last fall.'
The articles charged that un-
noticed by University or city of-
ficials student run football pools
had taken firm root on campus.
After some two weeks of investi-
gation following the articles' pub-
lication Setomer and McGuire
were arrested and it was an-
nounced by Assistant County
Prosecutor Edmund DeVine that
the two had confessed to being at

AT THE TIME Setomer was a
graduate student in the University
and McGuire a sophomore in the
College of Architecture and De-

school recently after completing
the fall semester.
When arraigned last November
the two pleaded nolo contendere.
Yesterday's sentence was imposedj
after two previous postponements.l
$200 of each of the men's fine
will be used to pay court costs.
The remaining $50 constitutes
the official fine. Besides the sen-
tence and the fine, Setomer and
McGuire were placed on two
years' probation.
The two men were visibly af-
fected when the sentence was an-
nounced. A source close to them
said that they had not thought the
sentence would be as severe as it
As far as the University is con-f
cerned, Associate Dean of Students
Walter B. Rea explained last night
that the case was pretty well
closed. He explained that there
might be a consideration of the
case by the Discipline Committee
or Men's Judiciary, but only to
give the University some official
record of the affair.
No University action was taken
earlier, Dean Rea said, awaiting

The Western Powers intend to
confront the Russians with a de-
mand for - Germany's unification
on terms that would scuttle Com-

high allied sources said last night.
There is skepticism about the
possibility the Russians will ac-

WASHINGTON, (P)-Chairman
Maybank (D-SC) of the Senate
Banking Committee said yester-
day an investigation of the Re-
construction Finance Corporation,
now under hot fire in Congress,
will be re-opened next week.
The announcement came just
24 hours after President Truman
renominated five RFC directors
whom the Senate had already
twice refused to confirm.
Maybank said a subcommittee
headed by Senator Fulbright
(D-Ark) will conduct hearings
centering on charges that three
of the five directors yielded to
outside influence in granting fed-
eral loans.
Fulbright's subcommittee, with
the backing of the full committee,
issued a report two weeks ago
accusing the RFC of falling under
the domination of Donald Daw-
son; a White House aide, and

Truman denounced as assinine,
specifically named directors C.
Edward Rowe, William E. Willett

It also named E. Merl Young,
an insurance broker, whose wife
is a White House stenographer,
as having exerted influence over
