Reds Are Still
In Control of
German Capital
By The Associated Press
BERLIN, July 7-A temporary lack
of coordination among the Allies on
the governing of Berlin formed a dis-
appointing overture to the approach-
ing Big Three meeting at Potsdam.
Soviet authcrities continued in
complete control of the military gov-
ernment here, and the common ques-
tion in the minds of American Mili-
tary Government officers was "why
did we come to Berlin?"
Meet -Complex Problems
High officials of the United States,
Russia and Britain were reported at-
tempting to solve the complex prob-
lems of food and boundaries.
Neither U. S. nor British Military
Government detachments had taken
over any district. U. S. forces suppos-
edly occupied their zone Wednesday,
when the Stars and Stripes were
raised over the shattered capital.
Barter Deal Discussed
Food reserves in the , Soviet zone
were not being made available to sec-
tors allotted- the other Allies. It was
reported a barter deal was under dis-
cussion on the highest levels under
which the Russians would be paid
"in kind" for such food.
Warm cordiality marked the direct
relations of Russian officers with the
Americans, who were puzzled. by the
haphazard arrangements for the
Anglo-American sharing of Berlin
with the Soviet Union.
Charter Will
Be Discussed
Will Speak Tuesday
Prof. A. Lobanov-Rostovsky of the
History Department will give the
first in a series of talks sponsored by
the Post-War Council dealing with
the San Francisco Charter at 7:30
p.m. EWT (6:30 p.m. CWT) Tuesday
at the Union.
Prof. Lobanov will explain the
charter and compare it with Ver-
sailles and the League Covenant.
Barbara Ann Hazelton will intro-
duce the speaker.
Other meetings of the Council will
be concerned with international eco-
nomics, human rights and minorities
as well as the problem of trusteeships
and the disposition of colonies.
Elizabeth Hawley, president of the
Council announced that on July 17
a panel discussion will be held on
"The San Francisco Charter-Does
It Have Sufficient Means of Enforce-

Three Full
Already in


By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, July 7-The War
Department announced tonight that
42 of the 68 divisions which fought
in Europe and the Mediterranean
will be back home or on the way by
the end of the year. .
Three full infantry divisions-the
86th, 97th and 95th-already have
arrived and most of a fourth division
-the 104th Infantry-is back.
Advance Detachments Arrive
Advance detachments of seven
other divisions, the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 8th,
44th and 87th Infantry and the 13th
Armored, have reached this country
and the remainder of the units will
arrive shortly.
Under present-plans, which may be
changed later, 31 divisions will em-
bark for home from August to Janu-
ary; eight remain in Europe as oc-
cupation forces and 18 divisions will
remain in Europe at least until the
end of this year.
500,000 Men Involved in Shift
The shifting of the 42 divisions
will involve the movement of -more
than 500,000 men.
The War Department said that al-
though security considerations were
involved in releasing the information
on the movement of the divisions, it
was believed that instead of bring-
ing aid and comfort to the Japanese,
the information will demonstrate
'conclusively' that the Army intends
to throw against Nippon the largest
force possible.
Troops Are Enroute to Pacific
The ,11 divisions which have re-
turned or are now arriving have been
ticketed for the Pacific front. In ad-
dition, complete headquarters of the
1st Army has returned en route to
the Pacific.
The War Department emphasized
that the men who will fight with
those divisions against the Japanese
will not necessarily be the same ones
who fought with the units against
the Germans.

An orientation meeting will be
held Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. EWT
(2:30 p.m. CWT) on the third floor

George Stevens To Lecture
On Academic Relations

"Hitler and fasc'ism have shown
the extent to which the school sys-
tem and especi lly the teacher influ-
ence the mind and attitude of the
pupil," George Stevens, who will lec-
ture before a meeting of the Inter-
Racial Association at 7:30 p.m. EWT
(6:30 p.m. CWT) tomorrow at the
Union, stated in a recent interview.
Stevens is a member of the Board
of Education of the Flint school sys-
tem and of the American Federation
of Teachers.

should be the task of the teacher to

aims of democracy. Too many teach-
ers are falling down in this task and
permit myths of racial superiority
and inferiority to remain in the
minds of their pupils. This encour-
ages racial intolerance and hatred
and is the germ of fascism," he said.
This is the first in a series of lec-
tures sponsored by the Inter-Racial
Association, whose purpose it is to
promote racial unity, help eliminate
the sources and causes of inter-racial
friction and discrimination and thus
promote the concrete realization of a
living democracy.
Subjects Announced
"The Church as a Democratizing
Factor," "Labor and Racial Policy,"
"Psychological and Social Aspects of
Per.-onal Relations," "Political Ac-
tion," are some of the topics for the
weekly programs, Herbret Otto, pres-
ident of the organization, said.
The activities of the association in
the past have included the campus-
wide distribution of the pamphlet
"Races of Mankind," holding sym-
posiums, discussions and lectures
with various guest speakers, in all of
which the aim has been to further
inter-racial unity.
Science Will Never
SCHENECTADY, N. Y., July 7-(P)
-When mommy says to junior "hur-
ry up, you're slower than molasses
in January," she is comparing him
to "just about the slowest thing mov-
ing," General Electric researchers
said today.
A small cupful of molasses, tested
in the GE-Zahn viscosimeter at a
mean January temperature, traveled
at a rate of approximately one foot
in three minutes, 41 seconds, the sci-
entists reported.

Unprecedented Burden on Railroads
This will shorten the coming crisis
in domestic transportation - which
had been expected to run until March
-but will throw an unprecedented
burden on the nation's railroads
through the entire vacation-travel
The Office of Defense Transporta-
tion, which last night prohibited the
use of sleeping cars on runs under
450 miles, said the order would apply
to soldiers and sailors on furlough
travel as well as civilians. Railroads
simply will not assign pullmans to
short runs after July 15, thereby
freezing nearly 900 cars for organized
troop movements.
Although some confusion regard-
ing effect of the order remained,
these points were cleared up today:
Less Than 450 Miles
1. Persons going less than 450 miles
may take pullman space on trains
scheduled for longer runs, if the
space is available.
A spokesman for the AAR, how-
ever, predicted that very little such
space would be available, since long-
run passengers probably would speak
for virtually all accommodations at
major rail terminals.
2. Baseball clubs will travel day
coach on short trips between league
cities, or take their chances with
other civilians.
3. A firm "no exceptions" policy
will be followed, according to the
4. The Army said it would take
care of transporting individual
wounded service men who are de-
*prived by the ODT order of their
automatic priority on pullman pas-
senger space on short trips. The War
Department's own facilities will be
used if necessary.
ODT acknowledged it was power-
less to prevent persons who are trav-
eling less than 450 miles from buy-
ing tickets for longer runs and then
using only part of the ticket.
Rock Island road officials said sev-
en Chicago and North Western runs
would be affected, with trains to
St. Paul, Minn.; and Watersmeet and
Ishpeming, Mich., traveling without
sleeping accommodations.
Fleemg Convict
Captured Here
Joseph Wayne, 31-year old Jack-
son Prison inmate who escaped last
night at 9:20 p. m. EWT, was appre-
hended just one hour and a half lat-
er in front of Muir's Drug Store here
by Jackson state police officers, to-
gether with Ann Arbor. police and
Washtenaw County sheriff's depu-

car theft, used a prison auto to make
his escape. He was followed to Ann
Arbor where State Trooper Davis,
Lt. Barney Gainsley, Deputies Vin-
cent, Fox, Harold Swoverland, and

ing him.

Civilian Increase of 1,000
This summer's civilian enrollment
is 1,000 above 1944 at the end of the
first week of registration, but there
was a marked decrease in the num-
ber of Army-Navy trainees.
The breakdown on this year's
figures includes:
Women, 2,722; civilian men, 1,911;
Army, 732; Navy, 965. Six women
veterans are also enrolled. The over-
all veteran enrollment, 17 per cent of
the entire male student body, repre-
sents a 200 per cent increase over the
'44 figure.
Tibbetts Predicts Increase
Dr. Clark Tibbetts, director of the
Veteran's Service Bureau predicted a
heavy increase in veteran enrollment
for the fall semester. He expects
4,000 veterans enrolled in the Uni-
versity after the war.
Of the 323 veterans enrolled, 252
are registered in the summer term
and 71 in the summer session.

The Army's 'Stomach' Eats,
Eats and Eats-Enough for Ten

ATLANTA, July 7-(,P)-Pfc. Ches-
ter J. "The Stomach" Salvatori, the
Army's eating wonder, consumes as
much as ten men to gain the plaudits
of onlookers, Col. Burgh S. Burnet,
Post Surgeon at Fort McPherson,

He said the Southbridge, Mass.,
soldier, who has skipped through
breakfasts of 40 eggs and all the

eating prowess had left his GI bud-

Colonel Burnet said Salvatori en-

to such an extent that he had even-

vast quantities.
