Minnesota'U'Fights Polio;
Purdue Turns Away 5,000
(.'______________5 ,0 00____________________________

The University of Minnesota con-
tinued its fight on the polio epidemic
this week, the biggest epidemic that
has occurred in the United States,
according to Dr. Donald Cown, assist-
ant director .of the Minnesota Health
Service. Although 21 children be-
tween the ages of five and 16 have
been treated there, no new cases
among University students have been
reported since the two recent fatali-
A plan for full utilization of higher

The University of Illinois campus
newspaper, "The Daily Illini," re-
ported this week a strong possibility
that 30,000 prospective college stu-
dents from Illinois will be barred
from entrance to any branch of high-
er education in the state because of
over-crowded . conditions. According
to an estimate based on the study of
the education facilities of the state,

Faces Inquiry
DETROIT, Aug. 17-(A)-Eighteen
officers and business agents of the
AFL Teamsters Union were accused
of an extortion conspiracy and ,viola-
tion of the State Labor Law in war-
rants annoupced tonight by Circuit
Judge George B. Murphy.
Judge Murphy, who has been sit-
ting as a one-man grand jury investi-
gating charges of labor racketeering.
said the warrants were the first of
"what may prove to be a long series."
The inquiry has been going on since
A grand jury investigation was ord-
ered by the Wayne (Detroit) County
courts after food merchants of the
metropolitan area, protesting union
tactics in an organizing drive, had
accused the teamsters of illegal prac-
A 3,500,000 damage suit was brought
against the union by the Detroit Re-
tail Meat Merchants Association lastl
May. The suit alleged a "coercive;
and monopolistic" campaign on the
union's part in seeking "unlawful1
labor objectives."
The union had set out to organize
the clerks of the metropolitan area's]
6,000 food stores. A court injunction
restrained the union from picketing1
the stores Aid from demanding that1
merchants buy 35 monthly permits
from the union in order to pick up1
foodstuffs at markets.

there is room for probably not more
than 100,000 students.
A campaign to fight discrimina-
tion against Negroes is underway at
the University of Illinois under the
direction of the Student-Commun-
ity Interracial committee, with the
public comnendation of President
George D. Stoddard. Six campus
restaurants have been picketed by
members and sympathizers of the
committee for unequal services to
Efforts to ' salvage the academic
careers of numerous junior and sen-
ior girls at the University of Illinois
who were displaced by sale of 10
houses in which they had been liv-
ing, resulted in formation of a par-
ents' cooperative, which purchased
three houses in the campus area.
A "split-shift" work plan for stu-
ient veterans at Michigan State Col-
lege is being considered as a possible
inswer to the problem of increased
food and housing costs. Although
:till in the idea stage, it shows prom-
ise of enabling the veterans to make
$100 per month to supplement their
;overnment incomes. The central
idea of the plan is for veterans to
divide a full shift at the larger in-
dustrial concerns in the Lansing area.

tive store at the trailer camp at

The Purdue University has been
forced to deny entrance this fall to
approximately 5,000 students, large-
ly out-of-state residents, due to the
critical housing situation and limited
instructional facilities. The estimat-
ed total resident enrollment at the
University is expected to approximate
12,000, as compared to the pre-war
peak of 7,121. In addition, 1,000
freshmen students will be admitted at
1S centers maintained by the Purdue
Extension division.
Another headache at Purdue Uni-
sity concerns the housing prob-
lem. University officials have made
an appeal to all householders in
nearby small towns in an effort
to provide accommodations for
approximately 3,000 students who
must be housed in private hones
or be forced to stay out of school.
An editorial campaign in the Uni-
versity of Indiana "Daily Student"
has been launched against the illicit
c ale of marijuana, a quantity of the
sensation - provoking weed having
been discovered in a private automo-
bile in Indianapolis last week.
In the midst of the phenomenal
housing difficulties at the University
of Indiana, as elsewhere, a coed there
has rejected her educational career
because the only room she could
find was papered and decorated in
pink, to which color she claimed she
was violently allergic!

PRESIDENT GOES ABOARD YACHT--Smiling and bareheaded, Presi-
dent Truman walks up the gangplank to board the yacht Williams-

the Narragansett bay area and along the cost of Maine in his first off-i-
