Of Price Rise
In Food Seen
OPA Head Porter
Pleads for New Bill
By The Associated Press
The cost of many essential food
items continued to inch upward yes-
terday as the nation neared the end
of its first post-war week free of
government price controls.
Wholesale prices of meat, butter
and eggs increased slightly in New
York City while in Chicago the live-
stock market tapered off.
The New York stock exchange had
one of its slowest days in months
with stocks quiet.
Asks Revision
And, as the consumer paid a little
more for the necessities of life, OPA
Adiministrator Paul Porter asked Con-
gress to revise the OPA extender bill
further to conform with President
Truman's recommendations.
His plea came as Senator Bridges
(Rep., N.H,) tried to keep the Senate
appropriations committee from even
talking about new funds for the
General Mills, Inc., said in Chicago
it was selling flour and cereal pro-
ducts "for immediate shipment only."
The firm said it was not commiting
itself to any set price until a new
OPA bill "is either passed or not pass-
ed." Several other companies are
doing likewise, a spokesman said.
A threat -of a buyers' strike came
from Louisville, Ky., where the Jef-
ferson County Citizens Political Ac-
tion Committee said persons who
raise rents or prices may be picketed.
The New York mercantile exchange
said butter was up a half cent a
71 Cent Butter
Grade A butter prices hit 711/2
cents, indicating a retail price in in-
dependent stores of about 85 or 86
cents a pound. The OPA ceiling
price ,was 68 cents.
Joseph J. Rosen, secretary of the
butter and egg merchants association
of New York, said best grade eggs
cost retailers about 55 , or 56 cents
a dozen and sold to consumers at
from 63 to 65 cents. He added:
"This isn't much of a rise above
OPA ceilings, which would be about
60 cents right now."

Holiday Death
Count Rises
To 227 Killed

By The Associated Press
The nation's violent death toll
rose to 227 yesterday (Friday) as
the h lf way mark neared in the long
Indeendence Day week-end.
The fatalities-well below ad-
vance forecasts of the National Safe-
ty Council-indicated most vaca-
tionists were mixing caution with
The Council estimated the four
day holiday period would result in
1,300 violent deaths, 450 of them in
traffic accidents. Of the total, the
Council said, 800 probably would be
killed outright, including 275 traffic
accident victims.
From 6 p.m. (Local Time) Wednes-
day to late Friday, 105 persons were
killed in traffic accidents, 63 drowned
and 59 died from miscellaneous
Theslow accident death rate was
held in the face of ideal highway tra-
vel and swimming conditions as sun-
ny moderate weather prevailed in
most sections of the country. The
Council said pleasant weather norm-
ally boosted the accident toll as more
persons took part in activities ex-
posed to risk.
Ohio led the states with 17 deaths,
nine in traffic mishaps.
Fatalities by states (traffic, drown-
ings, miscellaneous) included: Illi-
nois 6 1 1; Indiana 5 0 1; Iowa 6 1 1;
Kentucky 1 1 2; Michigan 4 1 0; Mis-
souri 5 2 2 ; Nebraska 1 0 2.; Ohio

.French Club Plans
Monday Meeting
The first of the weekly meetings
of the French Club will take place
at 8 p.m. Monday in the Union.
An election of officers is planned.
Prof. Charles E. Koella of the Ro-
mance Languages department will
speak informally on "Where Is
France Going?" in addition to group
singing and a social hour.
The French department is also
planning a series of French teas to
be given at 4 p.m. on Tuesdays and
Wednesdays in the cafeteria of the
Michigan League and on Thursdays
at the International Center.
Both the French Club meetings
and the French teas will be open to
all students interested in improving
their French.

A noticeable increase in the de-
mand for tornado insurance has been
observed by Ann Arbor insurance
agencies since Detroit was struck by
a second tornado last week.
Many property owners in the city,
have, for the first time, specifically
requested insurance policies covering
tornado inflicted damage during the
League To Hold
Second Mixer of
Season Tonight
Second of the series of summer
session dances, the League will spon-
sor an informal dance from 9 p.m.
to midnight today in the League
Tony Desmond and his Varsity
Band will furnish music for dancers.
Formerly billed as the Klaus. Kuiper
orchestra, the group played campus
dances and house functions last year.
Admissions for the dances, which
will be regularly sponsored every
Friday and Saturday throughout the
summer session, will be sold singly,
and men and women need not attend
in couples.
"Because there has been so little
time to become acquainted, we hope
that both men and women will feel
free to attend these dances without
dates, and hope that they may prove
adequate substitutes for the planned
acquaintance programs of regular or-
ientation periods," said Miss Ethel A.
McCormick, social director of the
The bandstand in the ballroom has
been moved to the side to allow more
room for dancing and more free cir-

Prisoner Treatment
BAD NAUHEIM, Germany, July
5-(P)-A prosecution witness tes-
tified today that Col. James A. Kil-
ian, former commandant of the Lich-
field, Eng., detention camp, per-
sonally had ordered the beating of
a soldier prisoner there, and had
promoted two guards for shooting at
The witness, Lt. Granville Cubage
of Oklahoma City, said he once ask-
ed relief from duty at the Lichfield
guardhouse because "the place was
too rough and I didn't want to get
hung out on a limb."
Cubage, who recently was fined
$250 after conviction on a charge of
authorizing use of clubs at Lichfield,
frequently refused to answer pos-
sible self-incriminating questions to-
day because his own sentence still is
subject to review.
Kilian, a cavalry veteran from
Highland Park, Ill., alternately red-
dened, fidgeted, smiled and shook
his head in denial as he listened to
Cubage's charges that Kilian himself
instituted the guardhouse's alleged
"be rough" policy.

past week, according to local insur-
ance company executives.
Several agencies reported that cli-
ents whose property was completely
covered by fire insurance, but only
partially protected against wind-
storms sought extended coverage
policies which provide for every
eventuality. Moreover, many insur-
ance officials said that holders of
extended coverage insurance inquir-
ed as to whether their present' poli-
cies also :covered tornado damage.
Although the recent tornadoes
played havoc with motor vehicles,
automobile insurance agencies re-
ceived few inquiries for they said
their clients appeared aware of the
fact that cars are automatically pro-
tected in case of a tornado by regu-
lar fire and theft insurance.
State Starts
Anti-Hay Fever
10 -' 0 10 s
Aid to Xietmis
LANSING, July 5-(4P)-The State
Health Department this week began
its two-fold program to aid hay fever
victims as the official "opening" of
Michigan's ragweed pollen season
sent thousands of the sufferers pack-
ing for their annual migration north-
The department pollen count was
started this week and will continue
through September 15 to report daily
pollen concentrations in 48 points
in the state to hay fever victims,
however, the counts are not expected
to reach 100-the sensitivity mark-
until late July.
Dr. B. H. Grigsby, department bo-
tanist and associate professor of bo-
tany at Michigan State College, and
his staff have begun to organize the
other half of the program-spray
control of ragweeds which is jointly
sponsored by the department and
the college extension service.
The spray program this year wil
be extended to certain test areas,
where the weed killer, 2-4-D will be
used to control the ragweed growth,
Grigsby reported. Sprayings will be
made in Saginaw, Muskegon, Macki-
naw City, Mackinac Island and Tra-
verse City.
Gigsby said abandoned victory
gardens which are becoming over-
grown with ragweeds are posing one
of the strongest threats to the pol-
len season this year.
Prospects for the pollen season are
entirely ependent on the weather,
he said- If the weather remains dry
during July and if there are rains in
August, the spread of pollen should
be light. Last year's season was a
comparatively light one because of
weather conditions.
The Campus Beautiful .. .
The tree trimming operation now
being caried out to further beautify

ance anounced today.

bark camouflaged drain pipes, Rob-

U.S. To Form
Korean State
WASHINGTON, July 5-(P)-The
United States Government has de-
cided to try to make dempcracy work
in as much of Korea as possible, with
or without the cooperation of Russia,
diplomatic officials said today.
The Soviet Union was reported by
these informants to have ignored
two appeals for cooperation in poli-
tical preparations designed to restore
Korean independence. So the Ameri-
can Military Government in the
country, to which the Allied powers
long ago promised independence, is
going ahead on its own.
Russia occupies the northern sec-
tion of Korea and the United States
the southern part. The situation is
not unlike that in Germany in that
each occupying power is exclusively
responsible for what happens in its
Months ago a joint Soviet-Ameri-
can commission was set-up to be-
gin working on the political recon-
struction of Korea which after 40
years of Japanese rule may require
considerable assistance before it is
again ready to govern itself.
The United States proposed that
the commission hear Koreans criti-
cal of occupation policies, including
Russian policies, as well as those
who were not critical. The Russians
were reported to have objected. Of-
ficials said it was the old Soviet-
American fight over free speech
which has come up in the United
Nations in other forms.
Parking Lot Planned ..-.

A parking lot is being planned by
the Department of Operations and
Maintenance out of the present play
ground behind the Law Quadrangle
on Tappan Rd. A new series of side-
walks are also in the offing, to be
laid at several heavy traffic points

The idea, he said, is to make the
scenery as realistic as possible while
keeping the weight of all the various
pieces down, so that scenery can be
moved easily. s
The flats, (walls) of the scenery
are made not of cardboard as is
commonly supposed but of muslin,
a light, weight cloth. The muslin,
Mellencamp said, is tacked on to
wooden frames, and frame joints are
reenforced with triangles of plywood.
The muslin is coated with a sort
of paint to make it stiff, and then is
painted to assume a realistic-looking
Trees constructed of wood would
be much to heavy to move around
on the stage, therefore, Mellen-
camp said, hollow drain pipes are
more suitable. One or two real tree
branches are fastened to the top of
the pipes to make the tree more
realistic, but most of the trunk is
mere pipe bound by adhesive tape.
The tape, he said, is wound so the
pipe takes on an irregular and
more realistic shape, and then the
tape is painted to resemble the
bark of the trees called for in the
All sets are designed after con-
ferences with the director of the
production, Mellencamp said. The
set design depends not only on the
play, but also upon the interpreta-
tion of the play by the director.
The "Papa Is All" set will be a
Pennsylvania Dutch interior. The
main room will be a sitting-room
kitchen, Mellencamp explained,
adding that because the character
Papa doesn't believe in frivolity,
there 'will be nothing in the room
not designed for utility. There will
be nothing for show in the kitchen,
he emphasized everything will be
mainly solid: a woodshed will be
beyond the back door, a wood stair-
way will lead to the second floor,
and a huge stone fireplace will en-
close a cast-iron wood-burning
Scenery, constructed in the labora-
tory theatre is moved over into the

ing night to allow the actors to be-
come accustomed to using scenery
props, Mellencamp said. We have the
three days, Mellencamp said, for last
minute minor additions, and for ar-
ranging light and sound cues.

Speech Clinic
Enlargves Staff
Hearing Rehabilitation
Program Introduced
Five new people have been added
to the summer staff of the Speech
clinic, Harlan Bloomer, head of the
clinic, said yesterday.
A new hearing rehabilitation pro-
gram will be carried on here under
the direction of D. E. Morley, a for-
mer lieutenant (jg) in the United
States Naval Reserve who was sta-
tioned at the acoustics center in the
Philadelphia Naval hospital.
The speech clinic expects to re-
ceive new acoustical equipment to
test commercial hearing aids soon,
Bloomer said, and Morley will re-
commend certain commercial aids
to correct special hearing faults.
Morley was employed in the hear-
ing conservation program in the
State Department of Public Instruc-
tion at Harrisburg, Pennsylvania be-
fore coming here recently.
Other people on. the clinic staff
are Miss Adeline McClelland from
Purdue University, Miss Charlotte
