Of Congress
Norris Will Head Group;
Number Of Projects
Will Be Undertaken
Congress, the campus' only organ-
ization for all independent men, will
get under way in the fall with a num-
ber of projects in the offing.
Under the leadership of President
Norton Norris, '43, Congress will
sponsor a rooming house council
comprising delegates from all the
larger houses on campus. The council
will pass on projects concerning
rooming house members, and the ex-
ecutive officers of Congress will exe-
cute the measures passed by the
The other executive officers in-
clude John Frazier, '43, secretary and
Albert Woh, '43, executive secretary.
Membership cards will be sold to
independents and will carry such
privileges as admission to Congress
social events, and discounts on such
things as cleaning and laundry.
Plans are also being made to hold
a convention for independents of
various Michigan colleges in Ann Ar-
bor. Cooperation with independents
of universities throughout the nation
is expected to be expanded this year,
according to John McKinnon, '44,
newly appointed delegate to the Na-
tional Independent Students' Asso-
The number of Congress' commit-
tees has been reduced from eight to
three. They are the student welfare
committee, headed by Robert Sharp,
'44; organizations, headed by McKin-
non and personnel, with Fred Hoff-
man, '44 as chairman.
The annual Congress dance will
probably be held in the winter. Last
year the dance was the "Hobo Hop".
One of the principal achievements
of Congress during the past school
year was to help bring about, through
its student welfare committee, a rais-
ing of the University's requirement
for lighting in rooming houses.
Wickard OK
On Ceilinsgs
Is Postponed
WASHINGTON, Aug. 13. -(P)-
Secretary of Agriculture Wickard
said today that he could not say
' whether he would approve OPA price
ceilings on livestock until he had
been given an opportunity to study a
specific price proposal.
The secretary disclosed at a press
conference that Price Administrator
Leon Henderson had inquired about
the department's attitude towards
ceilings on live cattle, hogs and
Wickardsaid such controls would
require a "complicated system of al-
locating livestock supplies "among
packers, the establishment of differ-
entials on different grades as well as
separate price scales for each mar-
ket, the maintenance of a force of
inspectors to enforce the ceiling, and
an agreement with processors on
minimum prices which they would
pay farmers.
"The solution of the problem may
require consumer rationing," Wick-
ard said.
The Secretary emphasized how-
ever, that present prospects indicated
that civilian supplies of meat during
the 12 month period ending July 1,
1943, would be about 135 pounds per
person, compared with 142 pounds in
1941 and with 131 pounds for the

10 year 1931-40 average. This esti-
mate was based upon the present
military and lend-lease require-

Aviation Experts Prepare
To Send Many Planes
Over Europe Daily
Associated Press Correspondent
BRITAIN, Aug. 13-Erstwhile Amer-
ican football stars are digging ditches
and some of the best civilian and
army aviation experts of the United
States a'e converting centuries-old
English estates into great air bases
in a rush to send hundreds of bomb-
ers over Germany daily.
I completed a 1,000-mile air tour
of United States bases in Britain to-
day with Maj.-Gen. Walter Hale
Frank, Chief of the Service Com-
mand, to get a first-hand view of
the vast aerial smash the U.S. Air
Forces are planning. American en-
gineering ingenuity is preparing for
the offensive at dazzling speed.
The U.S. air effort in this theater
dwarfs by far anything previously
attempted by any nation in trying to
build up a vast striking force thous-
ands of miles away from home. Plans
are weeks ahead of schedule under
the direction of General Frank, who
has spent much of his life as a tac-
tical airman and protests that he
"knows nothing about this service
end of the business.''
I two days' flying in a troop
transport with General Frank at the
controls part of the time, some of
the things seen were these:
1. Thousands of American civilian
technicians working side by side with
British laborers tearing famous old
estates apart and slicing long run-
ways across the hunting grounds.
Giant hangars are rising from lawns
which once were beautifully land-
2. Machine shops equal in size to
some of the largest in the United
States rising from bogs where a
month ago the silence was unbroken
except by singing birds.
3. Highly skilled American avia-
tion machinists working from dawn
to dusk as stevedores in their eager-
ness to speed the unloading of ships
and get the shops built.
4. Vast hangars and storerooms,
partly underground, staffed by U.S.
soldiers who within two weeks
after moving in,unpacked and dis-
patched many carloads of spare
parts to dispersal points in 48 hours.
One of the principal stops was
made at a huge base under construc-
tion jointly by an aircraft company
and the Army. By arrangement, the
company has been able to draw the
most able machinists'and avaiation
experts from other U.S. concerns.
When completed the base will service
every type of American plane.
Patriotism Appeal
Is Made In Drive
For Saving Rubber
LANSING, Aug. 13.-(P)--Sponsors
of Michigan's car conservation pro-
gram are making frank appeals to
patriotism because official state-
ments from Washington have con-
fused the public mind regarding the
necessity for saving rubber, Maxwell
Halsey, state war transportation co-
ordinator, declared today.
Halsey said the argument now be-
ing used to inspire tire saving meth-
ods was based on the theory that the
public would not want vital man-
power, time and materials diverted
from the production of war materials
to make tires for civilians, even if
that were possible.

Halsey said only four small Wayne
County communities of the 39 asked
to set up car conservation programs
had failed to act. In addition, 62
communities listed by the Army Ord-
nance Department as having muni-
tions orders have been asked also to
set up programs and 17 of those al-
ready have complied.
The plan for staggering hours of
factories, schools and business houses
is progressing slowly, Halsey said,
and a considerable amount of or-
ganizational effort has been ex-
pended on the "share the ride" plan.
Results should be noticeable in an-
other month, he added.

Fritzie Zivic
Whips Young
Easily In Six
NEW YORK, Aug. 13.-(A)-With
his eye on a return shot at the wel-
terweight championship he once
held, Fritzie Zivic gashed Garvey
Young's face into a bloody mess to-
night and stopped the southpaw ma-
rine after six completed rounds in
Madison Square Garden.
Zivic weighed 148; Young 146.
Scoring chiefly with a straight
right hand as he easily solved
Young's unorthodox left-hand style,
Fritzie had the marine's right eye
cut as early as the third round and
floored him for a one-count in the
fifth. The fight ended when the
State Athletic Commission physi-
cian, Dr. William Walker, decided,
at the end of the sixth, that Young's
right eye was cut too badly to per-
mit him to continue.
As far as it went, Fritzie was way
out in front.
Of the six completed rounds, the
Pittsburgher won five. Young's only
edge came in the third, when he
scored with lefts to the mid-section
and a couple of short rights to the

From Associated Press Summaries
Now before everybody else jumps
on his bandwagon seems the time to
discuss the peculiar rise of Claude
Passeau, a pitcher who, playing for
the notoriously lazy Chicago Cubs,
has managed to rack up 16 wins-
enough to lead both major loops.
He won another yesterday, and he
didn't seem to be working too hard
to do it, but then Passeau is a pitcher
in the Red Ruffing tradition-in oth-
er words he pitches just hard enough
to win.
The usually lethargic Cubs really
let him coast yesterday as they turn-
ed on three Cardinal hurlers for 13
hits and 13 runs to beat the Cardin-
als 13-5.
Passeau is not only the work horse
of a Chicago staff which usually con-
tributes four pitchers of the game,
but he is also a hurler who gets down
in the low hit brackets when the
pressure is on.
Originally up from Philadelphia he
is probably unduly grateful for his
position with the Cubs, a team which
Edward Burns, a Chicago writer, is
praising for its determined drive on
seventh place, a rung on the ladder
which it could barely see from its
lofty fifth place perch three weeks
There is no longer any doubt that
Claude will hang up twenty this year.
The question-and a big one-is
whether it will do any good.
In the same game a young pitcher
by the name of Howie Pollett, who
last year got the biggest boost of
any rookie pitcher in recent times,
again failed toset the world on fire.
Maybe Manager Billy Southworth
will let the fans in on it one of these
days. Good pitchers just don't be-
come bad ones in one winter.
' Virgil (Fire) Trucks was the victim
of bad luck yesterday but in losing a
3-2 decision to the Cleveland Indians,
he once more proved his position as
the most talented hurler on the Ti-
gers squad. Jack Wilson pitched a
disastrous double-ball to Oris Hock-
ett and there went Mr. Trucks' nice
ball game.
