GUAM, July 13, Friday-More than 500 B-29s spilled 3,000 tons of fire
and demolition bombs before dawn today on a Tokyo Bay oil center and
four Japanese cities after Marine and Navy planes had battered a big
naval air station, factories and rail lines at the south end of the daily-
pounded enemy homeland.
Shortly after the 21st Bomber Command disclosed the sixth Super-
fortress strike in 13 days at Nippon, Fleet Headquarters reported a "strong

Fight Against
Bretton Woods
Barkley Favors Plan
To Avoid Past Errors
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, July 12-Opening
a Senate'floor fight against the Bret-
ton Woods agreements, Senator Taft
(R.-Ohio) declared today the pro-
posed Interndtional Bank would be-
come a "device for draining our sav-
ings out of the United States for the
benefit of the rest of the world."
Barkley Replies
He drew an immediate reply from
Majority Leader Barkley (D.-Ky.)
who said the agreements represent
'at least a fair chance" of avoiding
the sort of mistakes made after the
last war. These mistakes, he said,
led to the 1929 depression.
"No nation can preserve prosper-
ity for itself if there is chaos in the
rest of the world," the Kentuckian
Officially, the legislation for Amer-
ican participation in the Interna-
tional Monetary Fund and the Inter-
national Bank, proposed in the agree-
ments, will not reach the Senate floor
until Monday. ..It has passed the
5,000-Word Speech
Taft opened the fight ahead of
time with a 5,000-word prepared
speech against the proposed $9,100,-
000,000 bank 'U. S. subscription
$3,175,000,000). He said he would
deal in detail later with the $8,800,-
000,000 international stabilization
fund (U. S. quota $2,750,000,000).
Union To Hold
Mixer Saturday
'Best music on record' will be play-
ed at the first Union mixer of the
summer term to be held from 2:30
to 5 p. m. EWT (1:30 to 4 p. m. CWT)
tomorrow in the ballroom of the
Union, Paul John, social committee
chairman, has announced.
"Although we have not definitely
planned any Union dances for the
summer," John said, "if enough
people show interest in the mixer we
will arrange for a series of dances,
both indoor and outdoor."
A strictly stag affair, the mixer
offers an opportunity for new stu-
dents on campus to get acquainted
with sophomores and upperclassmen.
USO Hostesses To

Students have the support of the
University in any project which will
enlarge our vision and help students
of other lands."
Ting Chang Ku, president of the
Chinese Students Club, described
the odessey of the students of the
University of Tsing Hua as they
moved from Peiping to Chang Sha
to Kunming, on foot, by boat and
by bicycle. Relating the life of
these students he entered a plea
for help to his countrymen.
Madame Lila Pargment of the Rus-
sian department traced the history
of the education movement in Rus-
sia. She told how learning continued,
even during the siege of Leningrad
when starvinghstudents worked in
basements to gain their precious edu-
cation. "The students are beginning
to rebuild now, brick by brick. Let's
help them to finish building."
Father Sophacles cited our indebt-
edness to Greece as the cradle of
knowledge, asking aid for the Univer-
sity of Athens.
"Out of the war have come youth
movements of which American
youth knows little about," Gore
said. He stated the principle points
discussed at the Youth Conference
as the maintenance of peace, the
needs of youth, the rehabilitation of
devastated countries and racial.
"After the 63 day uprising in War-
saw in 1944, not a building was left
of the University," Stefani Albrecht
of Poland said. "The University of
Warsaw is non-existent in the physi-
cal sense, but in an idealistic sense
it still exists in the minds of those
who hope to rebuild it."
"French students can't believe that
they are no longer under the German
occupation," Pierre Raynaud said.
"Americans can give the French
people the feeling that they are free
again, which is as important as any
material aid."
"Adopting a university is only
the framework in which to solve
the problem of the rehabilitation of
Europe," Max, Dresden of Holland
asserted. "The people need hope
and guidance in the gaining of
faith in their own ability to solve
their problems."
U.S., Britain
'Invade' Br lin
BERLIN, July 12-P)-The United
States and Britain took over control
of 12 of Berlin's 20 boroughs from
the Russians today and American
counterintelligence officers immedi-
ately began examining Soviet-ap-
pointed German administrators and
policemen to weed out possible Nazis.
The American officers indicated
that efficient Russian-named civil
servants would be retained regard-
less of whether they were Commu-
nists or Social Democrats or had oth-
er non-Nazi affiliations.
U. S. units which had been wait-
ing since midnight of July 4 to take
over moved into their occupation1
zone at 9 a. m., and British officers
assumed control at noon. American
truck convoys were organized to feed
750,000 Berliners, while the Britishi
accepted responsibility for 900,000 in
their zone.

THESE MEN WILL RULE BERLIN-These four generals-Berlin's "kommandanture"--will take over the
government of the bomb-shattered capital of Germany. Left to right are Major Gen. Floyd L. Parks, of the
U. S.; Col. Gen. Alexander V. Gorbatov, of Russia; Major Gen. L. 0. Lyne, of Britain, and Major Gen. Geoffrey
deBeauchesne, of France. The four will rotate as head of the group, serving 15-day terms in that capacity.

'Beethoven Concerto ',Red

Films Wll Be Shown Today

The "Beethoven Concerto" is being
presented to the campus by the Sum-
mer Session Office at 8230 p.m. EWT
(7:30 p.m. CWT) today and tomor-
row in the Rackham Auditorium.
Accompanying the Russian feature
are two shorts, "The Red Army
Chorus," and the "Swan Lake Bal-
let." There is no admission charge.
The "Bethoven Concerto" is a
musical concerning a children's
national music contest in Moscow.
The plot revolves around the prob-
lem of a music professor who hopes
to see his son win the contest.
However, one of his other pupils
is more talented than his son and in
a weak moment the professor discon-
tinues his lessons, blaming Vladick,
the more talented of the two for an
injury to his son's hand which was
caused during the children's play.
Young Vladick is heartbroken, and
in a moment of rage he throws the
professor's Beethoven cadenza in a
locomotive. His sister recruits the
childaen of the neighborhood and
v ith the help of a very talented dog
te music is found.
The children try to help Vladick
get his lessons via a radio-tele-
phone contraption. The professor,

Big Three To Meet in
Potsdam Next Week
July 12 - () - President Truman
neared Europe tonight for a confer-

previous "Big Three" session...-..
Meeting is Scheduled
It was revealed aboard this war-
ship that the conversations with
Prime Minister Churchill and Pre-
mier-Generalissimo Stalin in con-
quered Potsdam will get under way
Monday or Tuesday of next week.
The President was reported con-
vinced that the meeting on Berlin's
outskirts will outlast those of Que-
bec, Teheran and Yalta. The Yalta
meeting lasted eight days.
Except for the date of the meet-
ing itself, Mr. Truman's schedule still
was kept secret for security reasons.
Reach Antwerp Sunday
(From Belgium, however, it was re-
ported that the presidential party
was due to reach Antwerp Sunday
enroute to Potsdam. The 137th Regi-

MANILA, July 13, Friday-(1')-A
violent battle beyond Balikpapan was
reported today with Australian and
Dutch troops wielding flame-throw-

able Japanese ridge positions north of
the captured Borneo oil port.
At the same time, a one-mile ad-
vance east of Baliknaann was scored

take Vladick back.
Vladick in the meantime has writ-
ten his own cadenza which is superior
to the professor's. In Moscow, he can-
not pass the preliminaries because of
the feeling of insecurity resulting
from the lost lessons, but the pro-
fessor's son passes and plays Vla-
dick's cadenza. The film ends happily
with both children winning the con-
test together.

DETROIT, July 12-Milk deliveries
to some 130,000 families whose sup-

Creamery Co. and the Ebling
Creamery Co. actually was ended
Wednesday but company spokes-
men said processing of raw milk
required nearly two days before
deliveries could be resumed.
When the walkout began Monday,
union officials said office workers
were protesting failure of three
branch managers doing cashier work
to join the union. Inside dairy work-
ers and truck drivers later left their
jobs in sympathy.
The number of idle tonight includ-

Combat casualties reported by the
armed forces during the war rose to
1,049,104 today with the Navy turn-

The total was 12,167 higher than
last week. The Navy chalked up
7,846 of the rise-nearly double the
Army increase of 4,321.

In Touch with Fleet

gusta taking President Truman to
the Big Three Conference said the
Chief Executive was in touch hourly
with the powerful U. S. Third F leet
off Japan.
(Building up toward "the air satu-
ration of Japan," Gen. Douglas Mac-
Arthur announced at Manila that his
veteran air leader, Gen. George C.
Kenney had become top tactical air
commander and had moved advanc-

Air Force to Okinawa.)
Along a 480-mile strip from the
southern island of Shikoku north-

north of Tokyo, the sky giants dump-

bombs they have unloaded on Japan
since July 1.
Oil Center Smashed
The big Kawasaki oil center on a
reclaimed island in Tokyo Bay, pre-
viously hit in an April raid, was the
target of demolition bombs.
The four industrial cities, all raid-
ed for the first time, were showered
with incendiary bombs in the same
sort of saturation attack that has
been erasing Japan's war industries
one by one. They were:
Utsonomiya;, industrial city of
80,000 population 60 miles north of
Ichinomiya, west of Tokyo and nine
miles northwest of the often-bombed
munitions city of Nagoya.

nounced today that no further in-

Instead, he reported the setting
afire of three cargo ships off the
China coast by search privateers of
Fleet Air Wing one that same day;
told of Marine aircraft assaults Mon-

Ryukyus; and confi'rmed previous
Okinawa reports that some 200 raid-
