American" to eliminate misunder-
For example, she cited her British
enthusiasm, which was received here
as "damning with faint praise". Her
talk will concern features of Ameri-

As a Norwegian, Prof. Stene said,
she feels reasonably impartial on
the subject, which has far-reaching

Prof. Stene taught English in Nor-

Sweden in 1943, shortly before the
University was closed.
She has written a book entitled

Prof. Stene's graduate research
work at the University of London
was in the field of modern English
and modern Norwegian linguistics.

Auos Disclosed
In OPA Trial
By The Associated Press
DETROIT, July 3 - Government
witnesses testified today that custom-
ers of a Cairo, Ill., auction lot paid
two prices for a single automobile to
defendants accused by OPA of taking
part in "the nation's largest used car
black market."
The trial of the seven defendants
on conspiracy charges was adjourned
until July 9 by Federal Judge Arthur
A. Koscinski at the conclusion of
today's testimony before an all-
woman jury.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph
Murphy said he hopes to complete
the Government's case shortly after
the hearing resumes.
On trial are Ben Fishel, 33, of Cai-
rQ; Noble Dick, 37, of Murray, K'y.;
John D. Lovins, 35, and John C. A.
Nelson, 45, of Paducah, Ky.; Henton
Farley, 37, and Gordon Ivy, of Ben-
ton, Ky.; and Ed West of Popular
Bluff, Mo.
Twenty-two other defendants have
pleaded guilty to taking part in what
OPA labelled a $3,000,000 over-ceiling
Mrs. Jack Collins, 19, of Miller
City, Ill., testified that, as a book-
keeper for Fishel's Cairo auto con-
cern, she assisted buyers to make
out duel checks "lots of times".
One check was for the purchase
of an actual automobile at ceiling
price, she said, while the other was
for the purchase of a car "that never
"They just picked these cars out
of the sky?" Murphy asked her.
"Yes," the witness replied.
"Where did they get the motor
"They'd make one up," Mrs. Collins
She identified all of the defendants
except Ivy has men she had seen at
one time or another at Fishel's Cairo
lot, which the government charges
was a center of the conspiracy.
Another witness, Miss Laura Jean
Lawing, 21, of Cairo, employed as a
stenographer in the Fishel firm,, said
Fishel instructed her not to list actual
sales prices when filling out sales
forms for cars.
She testified that she assisted also
in making out two checks for a single
car, one for the ceiling price and the
other for the overceiling payment.

Exam Offered
To Geologists
The U.S. Civil Service Commission
is now offering probational examina-
tions for geologists, owing to their
increased demand by the govern-
ment through the development of
atomic energy and the search for
uranium deposits.
Experience is not essential, and
applications will be considered from
students expecting to complete a four
year course with 30 hours of geo-
logy by Sept. 1, 1946.
Entrance salaries for these posi-
tions range from: $2,644 to $3,397 for
those who have had at least two
years practical experience.
Applications must be received in
the Commission's Washington office
not later than July 24, 1946. Fur-
ther information and application
forms may be obtained from the
regional office of the Commission,
433 W. Van Buren St., Chicago 7,

Enrollment Up
In Education
The total class enrollment for the
School of Education is approximately
2,100, DeanEdmonson announced
yesterday. Composed almost entirely
of graduate students, this figure is
almost 20 per cent greater than last
year's enrollment, according to Dean
Only one completely new course
covering aptitude and vocational
tests, is being offered this summer,
but a number of old courses have
been reinstated.
Enrollment was prominent in
courses in secondary school admin-
istration, visual-sensory aids in edu-
cation and principles of educational
administration. Active interest was
also shown in all guidance courses
and those in the psychology of child
development and parent education.
Dean Edmonson pointed out that all
the classes were filled, ranging from
15 to 150 students each.

The University has received per-
mission from the Civilian Production
Administration to begin construc-
tion immediately on the General
Service Building and a building for
the School of Business Administra-
Vice-Presidents Robert P. Briggs
and Marvin L. Niehuss completed
arrangements with the federal agen-
cy in Washington for these two lead-
ing units in the University's postwar
building program.
Mr. Briggs said that a priority had
been given for the $1,500,000 General
Service Building with a provision
that two floors be used for classrooms
during the emergency of veterans'
education. Ultimately it will house
University administration offices. The
site for the building on S. State St.,
opposite Angell Hall, was cleared be-
fore building restrictions were set up
The Business Administration build-
ing will be erected on Monroe St.,
near the School of Architecture. It
will cost approximately $1,800,000

Jap Aggression
Blumed on U.S.
By The Associated Press
As was expected Japanese militar-
ists are trying to blame laws passed
in America for the fact that Japan
ran amuck as a military conqueror.
Mouthpiece is Adm Keisuke Okado
who is telling the War Crimes Tri-
bunal in Tokyo that it was the Amer-
ican oriental exclusion act of 1924
that really made Japan a bad boy
among nations.
This is fallacious nonsense, as A.P
Chief of Bureau Russel Brines points
out in a Tokyo dispatch today. Japan
was a grabber long before 1924.
But the silent oriental reaction to
our exclusion laws is not nonsense.
Nor is it fallacious from the oriental
And as for Japan, it cannot be
questioned that these laws gave Jap-
anese militarists one of the plausible
excuses they had been looking for
to Justify more bad boystuff.
We cut off Japanese immigration
in 1924 and forced Japanese to look
to Manchuria for living space, says
Adm. Okada. He forgets that the
Japanese people-except for officers
and profiteers-had to. be subsidized,
bribed and even forced to nove to
such a cold and hostile land.
But Adm. Okada has probed into
a very sore spat in oriental pride.
In 1924 we passed these laws which
in one fell blow made it legally im-
possible for any Asiatic to become
an American citizen. Asiatics did
not question our sovereign right to
do so, but inasmuch as most of them
had been living in complex civiliza-
tions for some time before America
was even heard of, the step did not
sit well in Asia to say the least.

Vice-President Briggs announced. He
was unable to predict the date when
construction of the two main build-
ings would be completed, due to
difficulties in obtaining materials.

Demolition lWill
Be Completed'
Students walking on Church St.
past the site where the new men's
dormitory is rapidly rising have ex-
pressed widespread concern over the
two remaining houses which stand
so stolidly in the midst of the con-
fusion of wreckers, steam shovel and
all the other construction machinery.
These concerned and even irritat-
ed students may be relieved to know
that the houses still stand for a defi-
nite reason-the one on Church St.
is being used to house some of the
construction workers and the house
on E. University St. quarters the con-
struction office.
Rest assured that both houses will
be remioved when necessary, but the
removal is not urgent as they stand
where the crossbar of the "H" shape
of the dormitory is planned, and are
therefore not really in the way.

Bilbo IsVictor
In Mississippi
Senatorial Race
Dark Horse Upsets
Oklahoma Primary
By The Associated Press
Theodore G. Bilbo, tub-thumping
advocate of "white supremacy," ap-
parently has won his fight for a third
term in the U.S. Senate.
To avoid a run-off in the Missis-
sippi primary, Bilbo needed more
votes than all his Democratic oppon-
ents combined.
Wednesday's counting indicates
that he got them.
The score, with half a hundred
precincts missing:;
Bilbo 96,395, Ross Collins 18,590,
Tom 0. Ellis 57,288, Frank Harper
1,397 and Nelson T. Levings 15,333.
This left Bilbo with a comfortable
majority of 3,787.
Winning the Democratic primary
in Mississippi is the equivalent of
winning the election.
A demand that he be disqualified
from serving in the Senate was made
by Clark Foreman, president of the
southern conference for human wel~
f are to Senator Johnson (Dem.,
Coo.), acting chairman of the Senate
elections committee.
Another white supremacy advo-
cate, Rep. John Rankin, dean of the
Mississippi delegation, also won re-
nomination, but failed, by 33 votes,
to carry his home county.
But he scored high elsewhere in
his district to pile up 13,327 votes
to 10,019 for former circuit judge
Claude E. Clayton and 1,583 for Rev.

Veteran Actors
Participate in
Summer Plays
Six veteran actors have returned to
Ann Arbor to participate in the
summer reparatory plays beginning
July 10.
Ray Pederson, Jim Moll and Char-
les McGaw are instructors in the
speech department who were promi-
nent in play production several years
ago. Pederson and Moll were char-
acter actors who played the leads in
"Androcleas and the Lion", while Mc-
Gaw acted in "Pride and Prejudice",
"Henry VIII", and "Two Gentlemen
of Verona."
Other actors now in Ann Arbor
are Mrs. Jim Moll, the former June
Madison, and Mr. and Mrs. Harold
Cooper. Mrs. Cooper was the former
Pat Miekle. Cooper, who has just
returned from service in the Navy,
will play the role of Jake, the role
he played two years ago in "Papa
Is All".
Clara Behringer, another veteran,
will play the part of Mrs. Yoder, a
part in "Papa Is All" she played two
years ago.
Favorite students from play pro-
duction who will also try for parts
in the summer plays are Dorothy
Murzak, Bob Bousma and Byron
Season tickets are on sale this
week and next. Tickets for individual
performances will be placed on sale
at 10 a.m. Monday.

Film Stars Olivier
Lawrence Olivier, just proclaimed
best actor of the year for his per-
formance with the Old Vic company
on Broadway, and Elizabeth Berg-
ner will play the principal parts in a
motion picture of Shakespeare's "As
You Like It" which will be shown in
the July Speech Assembly next Tues-
The film will be shown at 8 p.m.
Tuesday in the Kellogg Auditorium,
at 2 p.m. Wednesday in the Rack-
-ham Amphitheatre, and at 4 p.m.

Daily, called the "U of M Daily,"
originated in the strife between fra-
ternity men and independents, ac-
cording to Judge Harry D. Jewell,
'91L, who donated the debut number,
along with the first four volumes, to
the University when he was in Ann
Arbor for the Victory Reunion.
Independents Organize Staff
All of the publications appearing
on campus in the Eighties were either
weeklies or monthlies, Judge Jewell
explained, and the independents felt
that they were not sufficiently repre-
sented in these organizations.
As a result, the independents or-
ganized in the spring of 1890 and
decided to publish a campus news-
paper. On Sept. 29, 1890, the first
number of the "U of M Daily" ap-
peared, and the University thereby
became the first college west of Cor-
nell to publish a daily paper, Judge
Jewell pointed out.
Initial Editorial
The first issue printed the follow-
ing editorial:
"'Is the daily paper a go?' This
oft-repeated question is answered
once for all by our appearance to-
day. Yes, the Daily is a go. It is here
to stay . . . for we intend to make
the Daily so bright and newsy, so
wide-awake and progressive, and
withal so impartial that no student
can get along without it."
Fourth of Vets
Seek Pensions
One out of every four veterans of
World War II in the nation as a
whole has filed a claim with the
Veterans Administration for disabil-
ity pensions, the VA announced re-
A total of 3,282, 375 claims were
filed up to June 1.
Following the national proportion
of one out of four, Michigan veterans
filed 123,274 claims. Of this total,
61,922 resulted in awards, 55,366 were
disallowed or had been terminated,
and 5,986 were pending adjudiction.
The Veterans Administration urges
veterans who believe that they are
entitled to a disability pension to file
their claims within one year from
the date of discharge.
Veterans on campus who may be
eligible for disability claims may se-
cure information regarding making
an application by contacting the Vet-
erans Administration, 100 Rackham
