London Poles Ask
Loyalty of Forces
'Big Three' Offer Demobilization,
British Service, Recoinstruetion Work
By The Associated Press
LONDON, July 6-The exiled Polish Government in London-appar-
ently casting itself into the role of an "underground government"-called
upon the 250,000 men of the Polish armed forces abroad today to remain
loyal and support its claim to speak for the nation.
The action presumably challenged the plan of the major powers to
give Poles in the armed forces the choice of returning home to help in

McKay Received (ut
By The Associated Press
LANSING, July 6 - Isadore
Schwartz, one of eight defendants in
the liquor graft conspiracy case here,
turned states evidence this afternoon
after circuit judge Leland W. Carr
dismissed charges against him.
The charges were dismissed on the
motion of special prosecutor Kim
Sigler, who for more tln an hour
led Schwartz through testimony of
his financial and personal relation-
ship with Frank D. McKay of Grand
Rapids, one of the defendants and
formermRepublican National com-
mitteeman from Michigan.
Schwartz testified McKay received
a "25 per cent share".of all money
the witness made as a. sales repre-
sentative for the Arrow Liqueur Corp.
of Detroit, and that the former Re-
publican leader would "sometimes"
call Fred C. Ehrmann, ex-secretary
LANSING, Juy 6-(AP)-Special
prosecutor Kim Sigler and Eugene
L. Garey, attorney for McKay,
engaged in a brief verbal clash in
court today.,
It started when Garey quest-
ioned- the initials on an exhibit,
and Sigler commented, "There
must be something wrong with
your eyesight."
Garey retorted that "your ima-
gination is just like your costume
Sigler, known for his extensive
wardrobe, today was wearing a
pale, steel-green suit, with dark
green tie and green and white
striped shirt.
Judge Carr stopped the contro-
versy by declaring "we will in-
dulge in no personalities here."
of the State Liquor Control Commis-
sion, and say the Arrow was "a good
line to travel with."
Haltingly and in a low voice, the
witness related details of his associa-
tion with McKay from what he said
was their first meeting in 1934 to
1942, when all eight were defend-
ants in a federal court trial on simi-
lar charges, but were acquitted.
Schwartz testified that McKay paid
his attorney's fees in that case.
Letter Arrives-
Over Year Late
Don't ever let it be said that the
Army lacks persistence.
In January, 1944, the University
War Historian mailed a letter to Air
Corps Cpl. Kenneth L. Dorman, sup-
posedly stationed at Chanute Field,
Ill. By the time the letter arrived, he
had been transferred and the letter
was forwarded to Goodfellow Field,
But Cpl. Dorman had been trans-
ferred and the letter was forwarded
to the Pecos, Texas Air Base, which
in turn forwarded it to the Golds-
boro, N. C. Air Base. And so it went
through two more stations.
Finally the letter caught up with
the itinerant corporal and he receiv-
ed the letter two weeks ago in Eng-
land. News of the letter's arrival
reached the University yesterday.

ing under the British flag.
Less than 24 hours after Britain
and the United States formally rec-
ognized the new provisional govern-
ment of national unity at Warsaw,
the exiled regime of Premier Tom-
asz Archiszewski reaffirmed its de-
termination to refuse to surrender its
authority until a new government
is formed in free elections "on free
Polish soil." '
Then in an order of the day, Lt.-
Gen. Tadeusz Komorowski (Gen.
Bor) commander-in-chief of the Pol-
ish armed forces and leader of the
Warsaw uprising, told his troops
that the proclamations of President
Wladyslaw Rackiewicz of the Lon-
don regime "remain binding" upon
The pattern of developments indi-
cated the London group intended to
preserve at least the skeleton of an
organization despite the imminent
withdrawal of British financial sup-
port except for the pay of the arm-
ed forces and to personnel essential
for liquidating activities of the exil-
ed group.
Meanwhile, the newly-formed War-
saw government initiated action to
lay claim to the assets of the Lon-
don regime. Polpress, organ here of
the Warsaw government, said the
new government had named a three-
member commission "authorized to
take over and secure all property of
the Polish state in Great Britain."
Library Exhibits
Rare Volumes
Of British Books
A collection of books printed in
England before 1641 and belonging
to Dr. William W. Bishop, University
librarian from 1915 to 1941 has been
currently on display in the showcases
of the main library.
These books are representative of
the first 150 years of English print-
ing. and include books of poetry,
plays, prose, religious works, medical
works, mathematics, and volumes on
Especially notable among these
rare editions is a book published in
1616 containing the first folios of
Ben Jonson's plays, and a volume
that is the first quarto edition of the
King James Bible printed in 1612.
Some of the medical books are
translations of leading foreign auth-
orities of themtime, and one of the
math books is the first English trans-
lation of Euclid's Elements of Geom-

W ith New Fame
The self-styled "50year delin-
quent," who claimed his bachelor of
philosophy degree recently as a mem-
ber of the class of 1895, was over-
whelmed by the spread of the news,
he wrote in a letter to Robert .
Morgan, assistant general secretary
of Alumni Association.
"Those news-hounds-did they
spread it! Fame unsolicitedrand
glory undeserved," 77 year old Lind-
ley G. Long wrote from his farm in
Ohio. "It adds a touch of sweet-
ness to the vinegar of my years."
Long was in Ann Arbor June 20
for the golden anniversary reunion
eof the law class of 1895.

Pike To Talk
On Linguistics
Oklahoma Professor
To Analyze Language
A demonstration of how a linguist,
without the assistance of an inter-
preter, begins the analysis of a liv-
ing language entirely unfamiliar to
him will be given before the Linguis-
tic Institute at 7:30 p. mn. EWT (6:30
p. m. CWT) Wednesday, July 11, in
the Rackham Amphitheatre.
The demonstrator will be Dr. Ken-
neth L. Pike, assistant professor of
linguistics at the University of Okla-
homa and lecturer in phonetics in the
"Boning Up"
The faculty of the Linguistic Insti-
tute will choose as an informant a
speaker of a language unknown to
Dr. Pike, and, in order to make all
opportunity for "boning up" impos-
sible, will not inform him in ad-
vance of the name of the language
In addition, in order to create as
close a resemblance as possible to
conditions under which a field ling-
uist frequently must work, Dr. Pike
will not conduct the interview in
English, a language of which the
informant will presumably have some
knowledge, but will use Mixteco, an
American Indian language spoken in
Mexico, of which he has made a
study, as a "vocal gesture."
Conclusions Drawn
After a half-hour interview with
the informant in the presence of the
audience, Dr. Pike will speak (in
English) on the conclusions he has
been able to form about the struc-
ture of the unknown language. The
informant will verify the extent to
which Dr. Pike has been able to at-
tain correct results.

Frazer Tells Need For
Education To End War

S. C.) said in a speech here yester-
Discussing "Education for Inter-
national Understanding," Dr. Fraser,
in the fifth of a series of Education
School lectures, pointed out, "Our
leaders are making the political, eco-
nomic, and educational conditions for
international peace and goodwill."
Taunts Leaders
"Unless our political leaders be-
come more constructively and histo-
rically-minded, the American public
will fail to develop the international
understanding which is of extreme
importance," he asserted.
"Our immediate task with the Ger..
mans is to see that they pay the pen-
alties for their crimes and are de-
prived of the power to make war,"
Dr. Fraser declared. "But, we shall
not understand them, or accomplish
our aims, unless we remember that
they have commendable traditions as
well as military and brutal ones."
Cities Our Mistake
"We should remember," he said,
"our own failure to help prevent the
rise of the Nazis through the League
of Nations."
"Many of us have outspoken fear
of aggression by Russia, due to its
dictatorship and propaganda," Dr.
Fraser explained. "We should note
that the Russians also have a splen-
did record of cooperation, that their
freedom, democracy and tolerance
are increasing, and that they have
to their credit some of the greatest
accomplishments in history."

army signal work, he was wandering
through a wood where some German
children were playing. Catching
phrases of their conversation from a'
distance, he realized their game in-
volved Americans.
That was good, thought Eric, and
he walked closer-only to find that
they were playing war. Oh! Oh!
That's bad, thought Eric.
But as he watched an argument
arose over who would represent Am-
erican planes which were to strafe
German boats in a brook. Suddenly
Eric realized that all the kids want-
ed to be Americans. Well, at least it
was that much to the good, he
thought, and wandered away.
But when he looked back he saw
how they had settled the argu-
ment. The biggest boy had pushed
the smaller ones into the creek,
thus winning by strength the right
to play the American role.

This time it concerns the officers
both over here and back home who
insist that the nonfraternization pol-

read the latest of such protestation
out of a newspaper.
"Let's see," speculated a listen-

was it that used to say if you told
a big neough whopper often
enough and loud enough and to
enough people, pretty soon they
would begin to believe it?"

A high ranking officer just return-

the word that the military realizes
the nonfraternization policy is both
futile and unworkable and would
like to have it revoked. However, he
always adds, it can not be done now
because civilian public opinion back
home would not stand for it.
There were two soldiers, one of
whom was reading Stars and Stripes:
First Soldier: "Well, I see here
where they are asking generals for
their opinions on the peace time
draft bill and what they thnnk will
be needed to keep us out of future
Second soldier: "Yeah, and I

ans off the air."
