Employes' Credit Union Charged
With Irregularities in Operation'
DETROIT (AP - The four-million-dollar Ford Rouge employes
credit union has been shut down by federal authorities and charged
with "irregularities in operation."
Besides the alleged irregularities, the credit union also was
charged with failing to report the theft of $53,000 from its funds.
The Bureau.of Federal Credit Unions in the Department of Health,
Education and Welfare seized the credit union's office in suburban
Dearborn'at the close of business yesterday.
But bureau director J. Deane Gannon said in Washington yes-

Should or shouldn't the Union
be allowed to sell beer?
This is not the first time that
serious consideration has been giv-
en to the ,proposal.
In the 30's, the Regents gave
their support to an investigation
of the problem, but legal difficul-
ties prevented any action from be-

Dean of Students Erich A. Wal-
ter authorized another study of
the situation in 1950. At that time,
E. Blythe Stason, Dean of the Law
School, was asked for his opinion,)
not only from a legal standpoint,
but also because of his experience
on the Committee on Student Con-
duct and his familiarity with Uni-
His memorandum on the sub-
ject, dated March 31, 1950, stated
three reasons for the difficulties
involved in selling beer in the Un-
First, the University could not
sell intoxicating beverages to mi-
aors without running up against
she state law which forbids it.
Ihis would necessitate a careful
screening of all students in the
Line of Demarcation
Second, the University couldn't
naintain any establishment which
sold alcholic liquor by the glass
ast of Division Street, according
,o City Ordinance 123.1.
Third, the University could not
knowingly participate in the per-
itting of alcoholic beverages in
'he living accommodations under
its jurisdiction, such as residence

rhis is because of the state law
forbidding liquor on state-owned
For these three reasons, the
matter was dropped.
More Complications Outlined
Dean of Men Walter B. Rea yes-
5 terday outlined other complica-
tions to the situation. He com-
mented that if there were any tap-
room arrangements in the Union,
the strict screening of students
necessary would place heavy re-
sponsibility upon the shoulders of
the Union management.
The law forbidding the presence
of minors in a place where liquor
is sold would mean that under-
age students couldn't remain even
if drinking coffee. He mentioned
that perhaps arrangements could
be made for a special section of
the rathskellar to be open to
x minors, or that they might be
permitted to enter during meal
Another University official has
said that the move would be un-
wise in terms of public relations.
He said that to petition for exemp-
tion from the 'ordinance might

were denied this privilege.

WASHINGTON UP)-The United
States military high command has
drafted plans for use in case Pres-
ident Dwight D. Eisenhower con-
siders it necessary to fight for
Quemoy or the Matsu.
It is understood that a guiding
principle behind the plans is this:
If the Chinese Reds launch an
attack of a kind which prompts
the President to act, the initial
American power, inflicting more
damage on an enemy force than
the enemy had caused, would dis-
courage the Reds from pressing

No Decision Yet
Officials said today no decision,
would be made by President Eisen-
hower on that question until the
Reds make a specific challenge.
Some hope remains here that the
Reds will not force the issue, that
despite their belligerent talk, they
will gradually let the Formosa sit-
