Charges Bias
In Sororities
Student Legislator David Brown,
'53, charged last night that "at
least one University sorority and
maybe more" have discriminatory
{ clauses in their constitutions -_
though former Panhellenic Asso-

ciation president Jane Topper de-
nied this before the Student Af-

Brown claimed he had definite
proof of a clause in one sorority.

Beverly Clarke, '52, who attended

be willing to work with SL on

Miss Clarke said.
Student Legislator Dorothy

but the sorority's."

Horse Meat Sale
Reported in City
Ten or twelve shipments of uninspected, unlabeled horse meat
have been delivered to Ann Arbor restaurants, a Detroit meat-truck
driver told police this week.
Stewart Kennedy, 19 years old, a driver for the Belleville Pack-
ing Co., told Detroit authorities he picked up meat in a Detroit back-
alley on order of the packing firm's head, Theodore Pappas.
Kennedy said the meat was transferred to his unmarked blue
truck from a vehicle operated by the Michigan Food Co., a legitimate
horse meat supply house.
"Ten or twelve" shipments of the meat were delivered by him
to restaurants and hotels in Ann Arbor and Lansing, Kennedy revealed.
THREE LOCAL restaurant owners told The Daily yesterday they
had done business with Pappas' outfit, one as recently as Oct. 26. At

ments in Great Literature."
The stage and screen star will
present readings from some of his

Aherne's last such performance

tor is on his way to New York

A professional thespian since
e the age of ten, Aherne has in-

t peared with Miss Cornell several
times previously, playing oppo-
site her in "St. Joan," "The Bar-

His most recent Broadway role

Murder Trial
Be ins Here
The trial of three 18 year old
boys who are accused of the mur-
der of an Ann Arbor nurse to get
beer money, early this fall, began
yesterday in * Washtenaw Circuit
Court under Judge James K.
Breakey, Jr.
Selection of jurors began, but
by the end of the day a panel
had not yet been selected. With
100 new names drawn for possible
service last night, selection will
go on indefinitely today.
Prosecutor Douglas K. Read-
ing is expected to ask for a first
degree murder charge against,
the trio: William Morev III and

least two other eating establish-
ments have been mentioned as
dealing regularly with the concern.
None would admit that their
purchases from the Belleville Co.
actually involved horsemeat.
The disclosures took City Sani-
tary Inspector Gilbert Caswell by
surprise. Caswell, who learned of
the meat dealings from newspaper
accounts, said he would begin an
investigation today.
Caswell warned that violators of
health inspection ordinances face
a $100 fine in Municipal Court and
the loss of their Board of Health
City meat inspector Dr. George
Bowler, also said he knew nothing
of the horse meat shipments be-
fore yesterday.

came to light in Detroit Tuesday
Acting on an anonymous tip,
Detective Lt. Richard Bowen and
other police moved in on two
unmarked trucks in an alley.
Bowen said he found Archie
Hogg, an employe of the Michigan
Food Co., helping Kennedy load
the horse meat into the Belleville
Co. truck.
The truckers and Thomas J.
Barton, head of the horse meat
supply firm, were summoned by Dr.
R. F. Wilson, Detroit health inves-
tigator, to the office of Assistant
Corporation Counsel G. Edwin Sla-
Barton claimed that he had ask-
ed no questions of Pappas, a cash
customer, and emphasized that he
did not know Pappas.

DETROIT prosecutor Gerald K.
O'Brien yesterday ordered his chief
investigator, James J. Stewart, to
see whether any of the horse meat
has been illegally distributed in
Detroit. Stewart is expected to
take statements today from Hogg,
Kennedy and Barton.
Stewart will also attempt to
get a statement from Pappas
if he can be found. His home
address is not known by authori-
ties and he is "rarely seen" at a
walk-in refrigerator at 271
Eighteenth, where he reportedly
does his business.
Kennedy said Pappas has been
in Lansing this week taking meat
orders. Whether Pappas turns up
immediately or not, he will be cited
in Detroit's traffic and ordinance
court today for failure to have his
meat properly inspected, Corporate
Counsel officials said.
Local meat packers said yester-
day that restaurant owners who
'eceived the horse meat probably
knew what they were getting.
Horse meat, they noted, is easily
recognizeable in solid form. It is1

Yugoslavia Still
Won't Join NATO
BELGRADE, Yugoslavia-(I)-
Premier Marshal Tito held a mar-
athon, four-hour news conference
yesterday and declared Yugoslavia
will be on the side of the Atlantic
Pact nations in case of a third
World War,
Dressed in his gold and scarlet-
trimmed Marshal's uniform of
gray, Tito anwsered scores of
questions covering the whole range
of foreign and domestic affairs.
HE EXPRESSED these opin-
The Atlantic Pact-"On all
questions of economic and cul-
tural relations, on all questions
of international affairs that do
not conflict with Yugoslavia,
we will be willing to cooperate
with the countries of the At-
lantic Pact." But Yugoslavia is
not planning to join the alliance.
A Third World War-"The men-
ace of war exists," but the people
should not despair of preventing
it. In case of such a war "there
can be no neutrality for a Euro-
pean country."{
U.S. military aid-Yugoslavia
seeks "especially heavy artillery,
tanks and planes. We are not so
badly off for light arms. We pro-
duce some ourselves. We have re-
ceived considerable quantities of
light arms and ammunition also
from the West." Also, "there is no
question" of signing a United
States-Yugoslav Mutual Aid Pact;
"it is simply a question of an
agreement by which the United
States will supply us with arms."

Federal Tax
On Cigarettes
If you buy cigarettes today
you'll pay one cent more than you
did yesterday.
A new increase in federal excise
taxes is responsible for the boost,
which will also effect gasoline,
liquor, beer and wine.
Most cigarettes will go up one
cent a pack, the amount of the
government increase, according
tfr Ashley Clague, president of
the Washtenaw Retail Grocers
and Meat Dealers Association.
The hike in taxes on gasoline
will raise the price to 29 cents
for standard brands, and 31 cents
for premium. The half-cent in-
crease in federal excise taxes is ina
addition to the 1% cent boost in
the state gas tax which went into
effect last June.
The prices of liquor, beer and;
wine will be marked up in propor-
tion to the alcoholic content, ac-
cording to state liquor store offi-
cials. The increase will amount
to about one cent a fifth for
wines, and will range up to 30
