Gov. Stevenson
By The Associated Press
One man threw his hat into
the ring for the Democratic Presi-
dential nomination and President
Truman lauded another potential
y candidate, but the question of
whether Mr. Truman himself will
run remained unanswered.
Sen. Richard B. Russell, of
Georgia, announced that he will
seek the nomination and imme-
diately became the candidate of
the Southern Anti - Democratic
wing of the Democratic party.

Any southern bolt after the

have one vote.

The awards were presented by
Prof. Roy W. Cowden of the Eng-

director, yesterday afternoon at a
short ceremony in Rackham
Amphitheatre. Prof. Marvin Fel-
heim of the English department
opened the program with a talk
on "The Writing Game."
Thirty-five contestants sub-
mitted 40 manuscripts in the
fields of essay, fiction, and
poetry. Only entrance require-
ment of the contest was that the
entrant be a freshman regularly
enrolled in an English composi-
tion course either in the literary
or engineering college.
Winners in the essay division
were Patricia Shaw, first prize of
$50 for "Detroit Artistry"; Ruth
Misheloff, second prize of $30 for

lene Rhodus, third prize of $20
for "Viewpoints on Music."

tee, quickly suggested that such
an accusation is in accord with
"the Communist line."
And Chairman MCarran (D-
Nev.) broke in to observe sar-
castically: "Everybody is in
bad faith except Mr. Lattimore."
It was Lattimore's third-and
by far his stormiest-appearance
before the Senate Internal Secur-
ity Subcommittee to defend him-
self against charges of holding
Red sympathies.
McCarthy has accused him of
being Russia's top spy in this
country, and Stassen, a Republi-
can presidential aspirant, has
named him as the leader of a
group which Stassen said ad-
vocated a 10-point program fa-
vorable to Red China at a State
Department conference in 1949.

of the Communism investigation

Meanwhile President Truman,
Governor G. Mennen Williams and
Sen. Blair Moody (D-Mich.) de-

whatever involved in the ban on
broadcasting or televising the De-

THE FRAUD prosecution was
threatened against Patrick Rice,
Vice-President of the CIO United
Auto Workers' huge Ford Local
Rep. Potter (R-Mich.) said
that Rice's testimony relative to
his application for a passport to
visit Europe would be examined
with the possibility it would be
turned over to the Department
of Justice.
Potter said that, according to
Rice's testimony, he had commit-,
ted fraud in the application.

Blood To Be Used in Defense Effort

blood obtained locally is sent to
Lansing where the sub-agency
for the Defense Department

Dr. Mallery continued.
Some of the blood is processed
there into plasma, the rest is sent

the government for that work.
