Change IndPontRequirement
Is No oIndefIiniely Postponed

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Aug. 2-The Army ttrned thumbs down today on
proposals for faster demobilization and emphasized that stand by post-
poning indefinitely any change in the 85 points required for soldier dis-
charges.
Earlier the service had expected to fix late in July a lower "critical"
score for release under the point discharge system. The postponement
means that eventually men now going to the Pacific will get point credits
4for combat and overseas service.

New Men Head
State. Prisons
Temporarily
Three Acting Wardens
Appointed by Heyns
By The Associated Press
LANSING, Aug. 2-Garrett Heyns,
State Corrections Director, today
placed three temporary wardens in
charge of Michigan penal institu-
tions.
He named Gerald F. Bush, a mem-
ber of the State Parole Board, to be
acting warden of the Marquette
branch prison.
Dr. David P. Phillips, psychiatrist
-at the Ionia reformatory, was made
acting warden of that institution.
Heyns named Warden Ralph E.
Benson of the Marquette prison to
be acting warden of the State Prison
of Southern Michigan to operate that
peitentiary until the State Civil Ser-
vice Commission has decided wheher
Harry H. Jackson,sdismissedrwarden,
and six of his assistants, are to be
reinstated to their jobs. They were
removed on charges of maladmini-
stration.
Heyns said that Warden Joel R.
Moore of the Ionia reformatory was
seriously ill in a hospital and that
William Bath, veteran captain of the
guards was running the Marquette
institution in Benson's absence.
Heyns emphasized that the ap-
pointments were purely temporary
and that they did not indicate the
Corrections Commission's plan for
administration of the prisons in the
future.
Because he will have to be away
from the Prison of Southern Michi-
gan some of the time, Heyns said he
wanted Benson's authority there
clearly established. Heyns and Ben-
son took over operation of the prison
when Jackson was removed.
Bush -was one of a group of prison
officials and parole board members
kidnapped by escaping convicts at
the Marquette prison in September,
1939.
SRA To Greet
Student Grrou
An inter-racial team of students
travelling for the American Friends
Service Committee will be guests at
the Student Religious Association
Coffee Hour, 4:30 p. m. EWT (3:30
p. m. CWT) today in Lane Hall.
At the SRA luncheon, 12:30 p. m.
EWT (11:30 p. m. CWT) tomorrow a
book review and discussion on "They
Seek a City" by Bontemps and Con-
roy will be featured. Scott Mijaka-
wa will lead the discussion. To re-
serve a place at the cost luncheon,
call Lane Hall.
The public is invited to attend
both affairs.
Roy Is Named To County
Assistant Probation Post
Raymond L. Roy, former investi-
gator for the Michigan Liquor Con-
trol Commission, has been named
assistant probation officer for the
Washtenaw County Circuit Court.
A former member of the Washte-~
naw County Sheriff's department,'
Roy will assist Mrs. Carruth Cook,
Chief Probation Officer.

There is no change in the plan ulti-
mately to fix another and probably
lower. score.
Retention, for the time, of the 85
point requirement was announced by
Secretary Stimson.
Cut to 7,000,000 Men
The planned discharge rate con-
templates cutting the Army back to
7,000,000 men by next June 1, with
a total of 2,000,000 enlisted men and
100,000 officers to be released by that
time. About 1,500,000 of the dis-
charges will be on points and the
remainder for such causes as wounds,
age and illness. The discharges will
not be net loss, part being offset by
800,000 inductions.
The present discharge score of 85
will be continued, the Army said,
until 800,000 now eligible on the basis
of service, time overseas, combat and
parenthood have been released. No
date was even estimated for the fix-
ing of the new count requirement for
discharge of an additional 700,000.
At that time credits built up since
May, Stimson said.
WAC Serve Unchanged
Also unchanged is the 44-point
score for WACs, of whom 5,000 have
the required discharge total. Ap-
proximately 6,000 additionalWACs,
Stimsgn said, will be released by next
June,
Stimnon announced that 18,000
officers already have returned to civil-
ian life since May.
"But In accordance with the policy
announced at the time the merit
system was instituted," Stimson said,
"there will be no critical score for
officers, although their individual
scores will also be recomputed. The
element of military necessity will play
a much greater r.ole in a decision as
to whether an officer must be re-
tained than it does in the case of an
enlisted man."
Labor Cof
Is Endorsed
WASHINGTON, Aug. 2-()-Sec-
retary of Labor Schwellenbach en-
dorsed today a suggestion that he
sponsor a general industrial peace
conference, but it may not be held
until his contemplated departmental
reorganization is accomplished.
The proposal came from Senator
Vandenberg (R.-Mich.- who wrote
the new cabinet member a recom-
mendation that leading Represent-
atives of industry, labor and govern-
ment be called together to seek a
program for avoidance of strife in
the reconversion period.
Schwellenbach in an immediate re-
ply assured his former senate col-
league that he has "been thinking
more and more during these last few
weeks about the desirability of call-
ing a conference of industry and
labor."
Vandenberg, who was a delegate to
the San Francisco Conference which
set up the United Nations organiza-
tion, urged that top men in each of
the nation's economic divisions fol-
low the example set on the west
coast when delegates from 50 nations
sat together and "frankly faced"
their problems in a "triumph of the
council table."
Two Dead As Plane

PONTIAC, Mich., Aug. 2 -(RP)-

ternoon when an air transport train-
ing plane crashed into a house and
garage at John R. and Sixteen Mile

the time were uninjured.
The dead were identified by the
Romulus Air Base as Second Lt.

and Flight Officer Louis J. Mikola-
jak, Buffalo, N. Y.

framework for collecting reparations
from Germany on the principle that
Russia should collect its claims and
thc~s of Poland from the Russian
--- zone of occupation, while Britain,
the United States and other coun-
tries entitled to reparations should
get theirs from the British, Ameri-
an and French zones.
Both the eastern and western
claimants would also have access to
"appropriate German external as-
.ets."
In addition. Russia also is to re-'
o Ave from the western zones 15 per

those zones in exchange for an equiv-
alent value of food, coal. oil and oth-
er natural products of eastern Ger-
many.
Russia is also to receive 10 per
cent of whatever industrial capital
cquipment is extracted from the
westorn zones without any exchange
in return at all. The principle to be
I applied in removing this equipment
for reparations is that it should not
be necessary for the German peace
economy.
A possible clue to duration of the
initial period of occupation in Ger-

Slap at Franco
The slap at Franco', government
in Spain came when the Big Three
said that they were ready to support
applications for United Nations
membership fr om the European
countries neutral in the recent war
which conformed with requirements
of being peace-loving states, but add-
ed:
"The three governments feel bound
however to make it clear that they
for their part would not favor any
application for membership put for-
ward by the present Spanish govern-
ment, which, having been founded
with the support of the Axis pow-
ers, does not, in view of its origins,
its nature, its record and its close
association with the aggressor states,
pc:sess the qualifications necessary
to justify such membership."
In charting plans for organizing
peace in Europe, the Big Three said
that the writing of a peace treaty
for Italy should be the first task of
the Foreign Ministers Council. It
was at this point that the only men-
tion of Japan by name came in the
comunique to which Stalin sub-
scribed, along with his two conferees.
Italy Complimented
"Italy," the ccmmuviique said, "was
the first of the Axis powers to break
with Germany, to whose defeat she
has made a material contribution,
and has now joined with the Allies
in the struggle against Japan."
Conclusion of- a peace treaty with
Italy, the communique added, will
make it possible for the United
States, Britain and Russia to support
an Italian request for membership
in the United Nations.
After Italy, the foreign ministers
are charged with preparing peace
treaties for Bulgaria, Finland, Hun-
gary and Romania, which then also
may have Big Three support for
United Nations membership.
On the question of Italian colonies
Russia submitted a proposal to make
them trusteeship territories under
international control, according to
the system set up by the United Na-
tions at San Francisco. But this
evidently was overruled, in favor of
submitting the whole question of
colonies to the foreign ministers'
council when it writes the Italian
peace treaty.
Disagree -n Austria
One proposal was a subject of con-
siderable concern to the American
delegation at Potsdam. Stalin ad-
vocated extending the authority of
the Austrian provisional government,
which Russia sponsored -exclusively,
to all of Austria. Mr. Truman and
Attlee appeared to have opposed this
for it was finally decided not to
make an agreement on this point
until after entry of British and
American forces into the capital of
Vienna.
The Big Three also tackled the
problem of removing German popu-
lations from Poland, Czechoslovakia
and Hungary. It was agreed that the
Allied Control Council should ar-
range for the equitable distribution
of these Germans among the four
Allied occupation zones so that they
may be withdrawn from those three
countries in an orderly manner.
Disposal of German Fleet
The communique caught up many
points which have been under dis-
cussion in diplomatic quarters for
months. One concerns the use and
disposal of Germany's surrendered
war and merchant fleets. The Big
Three decided to turn over to ex-
perts the problem of working out
plans for the disposition of these
ships and agreed to issue another
statement on this subject "in due
course."

For Costuming
(Continued from Page 1)
men's costumes and a few of the
women's will be rented.
Work in Crews
There are 21 girls in Miss Barton's
class who are put into crews and are
required to work eight hours a week
in the costume room. When time
presses they often put in more than
the minimum number. Jean Loree
and Betty Stacey, both graduates of
the University, are assisting Miss
Barton in her job to gain experience
in this type of theatre work.
Miss Barton stated that "the work-
shop equipment is good and the irons
and sewing machines are in fine con-
dition. The costume room in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre is a
good place to work."
Four Seasons
Miss Barton's four seasons with
the Players have not been consecutive.
In 1940 she directed the costuming
of the celebration of Coronado's 500th
Exploration Centennial in Albuquer-
que, New Mexico. This is a federal
sponsored project and Miss Barton
designed and directed the making of
500 costumes. Her workshop consist-
ed of about twenty helpers.
The Centennial's production play-
ed in ten towns through New Mexico,
Arizona, and Texas and the cast was
selected from each town they visited.
Directors preceded the equipment and
prepared the actors for the presenta-
tion . The costumes had to be made
so that they could easily be adjusted
to fit any number of sizes and shapes.
