May Accepts Call,
With Reservations
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, July 12-Henry
Garsson, promoter of a munitions
combine, and Benjamin Franklin
Fields, press agent and-former con-
vict, refused today to waive consti-
tutional immunity, so the Senate
War Investigating Committee de-
clined to accept their prepared testi-
Both have been named by previous
witnesses as key figures in operations
of a munitions combine now under
war profits investigation.
Clain Rights
Garsson and Fields separately
claimed their rights after being re-
minded by Chairman Mead (Dem.-
N.Y.) that the constitution's fifth
amendment prohibits any person
from being required to testify against
himself in a case which may lead to
criminal prosecution.
Mead asked whether they would,
in the face of that provision, agree
to answer "all questions frankly, ful-
ly and completely."
Fields' decision to stand on his
constitutional rights came in the
midst of an angrily-sputtered pro-
test that he had appeared volun-
tarily, without an attorney, before an
obviously hostile committee-a dec-
laration which drew from Mead a
retort that he was there as a result
of a subpoena.
Senators Protest
A few minutes later the diminutive
and dapper Garsson more quietly
made the same decision on the advice
of his, lawyer as Mead and Senator
Ferguson (Rep.-Mich.) protested that
they were not interested in "pretty
speeches and self-serving state-
Both were promptly excused from
the stand.
The dramatic interruption in the
committee's inquiry ,came only a few
hours after it had sent a politely-
worded, but firm, invitation to Rep.
May (Dem.-Ky.) to testify in public
on the wartime help he gave Gar-
sson and the Illinois industrial com-
May Replies
May replied late today saying he
would be "only too glad to consider"
the invitation but stipulated that
he -should have the right to cross-
examine witnesses who have testified
about his activities, and to call wit-
nesses of his own.
He also said his willingness to ap-
pear would be conditioned by assur-
ance from Mead that "the public in
turn may be given the full benefit
of the purpose for which you assert
you are holding public hearings in
this matter."
May has denied that he profited
personally from his activities on be-
half of the munitions makers, and
declared that what he did was de-
signed to aid the war effort.

Bromages Will Discuss Total
War and Democracy on Radio

Prof. and Mrs. Arthur Bromage
will present a discussion of the as-
pects of "Total War and the Pre-
servation of Democracy over WPAG

Arbor Citizens Council which will
include a reading of the contempor-
ary dramatic poem, the "Curd Sel-
ler" by Gunvant M. Shah of Bom-
bay, India, at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow:
Prof. Bromage, of the political sci-
ence department, and Mrs. Bromage,
Assistant Dean of Women for the
University, have been associated
with civic affairs for some time. In
1943 Prof. Bromage obtained a mili-
tary leave of absence from the Uni-
versity to enter the Army where his
first service was at the School of Mil-
itary Government. Upon completion
of his courses he served on the staff
and faculty of the Provost Marshall
General's School at Fort Custer.
Prof. Bromage began his over-
seas service in 1944; first in Eng-
land, followed by duties in France
and' finally as Administrator and
Local Government Officer with a Re-
gional Military Government De-
tachment for the State of Bavaria.
He left the Army in September 1945
with the rank of lieutenant colonel.
While Prof. Bromage was in Ar-
my service, Mrs. Bromage, who for-
merly taught English at the Uni-
versity, began work with the United
Nations Relief and Rehabilitation
Administration, training overseas
personnel for relieftwork in the Bal-
kans. She left UNRRA after about
a year's service and returned to
take up her present position as Assis-
tant Dean of Women.
Prior to the war, both Prof. and
Mrs. Bromage served in various phas-
es of state and community programs.
Prof. Bromage was a member of
Governor Murphy's Commission for
the Reorganization of State Govern-
ment and has served actively on the
Community Fund Board. Mrs. Bro-
mage kwas president of the local
Community Fund, a member of the
Board of Family Service, and at
present is with the Public Health
Nursing Program and the Y.W.C.A.
Interested in the Irish govern-
ment reform, Prof. and Mrs. Bro-
mage conducted work in Ireland

which led to the publication of about
20 articles dealing with such im-
provements as housing, city man-
agement, and the spirit of Irish Na-
tionalism as expressed in literature.
Mrs. Bromage is at present con-
tinuing this work. Prof. Bromage is
now on the commission in charge of
the Institute of Public Administra-
A graduate of Harvard University,
Prof. Bromage taught there before

An "International Festival," the

ed by the International Center, was
announced yesterday for Nov. 26 in,
Hill Auditorium, with students from,
the 50-odd countries represented in

British Loan
Vote In House
Is Tomorrow
WASHINGTON, July 12 - (A') -
Russia loomed large in the closing
House debate tonight on the $3,750,-
000,000 British loan, as proponents
declared the crucial vote tomorrow
will determine whether the world
will look to America or Moscow for
The long debate ended with Rep.
Clare Boothe Luce (Conn.) declaring
that Britain is "America's buffer
state" against aggression-that "she
is the oldest and most-to-be-trusted
World Watches
Previously, the Democratic leader,
Rep. McCormack of Massachusetts,
had told the House the whole world
would be watching its vote and if
America turns to isolationism many
nations will enter the orbit of the
Soviet Union.'
Mrs. Luce quoted from a previous
speech to the.House in which she
said Britain serves as a buffer against
Russia because Russia could not
reach American soil without first
passing through or above British
Many House members applauded
when Rep. Wadsworth (Rep.-N.Y.)
called for approval of the huge credit
as* a boon to foreign commerce, free
enterprise and world peace.
Both Claim Victory-
On the eve of the crucial decision
both sides claimed victory. Speaker
Rayburn (Dem.-Tex.) predicted the
ratification bill will pass. The Sen-
ate approved it May 10 by 46 to 34.
Speaking for the opposition, Rep.
Landis (Rep.-Ind.) declared that
"this loan is more likely to promote
war than it is to preserve peace."
He voiced confidence, after a poll of
Republican members, that it will be
The first test probably will come
on a amendment by Rep. Dirksen
(Rep.-Ill.) proposing that Britain
put up full security for any funds.
The amendment likely will follow
suggestions of Jesse Jones, former
commerce secretary,. who has termed
the credit in its present form a sub-
sidy for the British Empire.

aspects of the cultures of the differ-
ent countries.
During the war, the opportunities
of foreign students to portray their
cultures were limited mainly to
speeches and a few special perform-
ances. However, now that most of
the wartime restrictions have been
lifted, Kozera explained, it is again
possible for these students to fur-
ther understanding and good will by,
bringing to other students and to
townspeople the color and character-
istics of their native lands.
Dances, songs, and other acts typi-
cal of the various countries are to
be featured at the festival. Students
from India, the Philippine Islands,
China, Turkey, the Union of South
Africa, Brazil and Russia will be
asked to participate. The Latin
American Society will present an act
typical of Spanish-speaking Latin
America, Arabic countries will be
represented, and probably five Polish
dances will be given.
In addition, an Egyptian dancer,
from Hollywood will be asked to par-
ticipate as a special attraction, Ko-
zera said.
There willbe an unusual set of
scenery for the event, he added, and
the costumes will be typical of the
nations represented.
European VD
Rate Climbing
FRANKFURT, Germany, July 12
-(oP)-The U.S. Army said today the
veneral disease rate among its troops
in Europe "is probably the highest
in American military history." A
medical officer reported more than
half the troops in some areas'were
infected in the course of a year.
"The trend is still upward," the
report said, despite three months of
strict discipline ordered by Gen.
Joseph T. McNarney, theatre com-
mander, in an effort to check the
rising rate.
"The rate of veneral disease infec-
tion among U.S. troops in the Euro-
pean Theatre is the highest since
the beginning of the war, and prob-
ably the highest in American mili-
tary history," the office of the chief
surgeon in the theatre said.

Battle Prejudice
For World Unity
Educator Says
Claims Teachers Have
Primary Responsibility
By helping to battle race and re-
ligious prejudices, educational in-
stitutions can contribute to world
unity, Dr. Edgar G. Johnston, as-
sociate professor in the School of
Education said yesterday in a lec-
ture on modern teaching trends.
Calls Prejudices Acquired
"Since prejudices are learned, not
inherited, teachers have a primary
responsibility in promoting national
and international tolerance and un-
derstanding," Dr. Johnston said.
As an example of a nation popu-
lated by different peoples fused into
one culture, the United States can
take the lead in showing how inter-
national unity can be accomplished,
he asserted.
,classified Into Types
However, our first task is to over-
come minor internal discords arising
from prejudices that he classified
into the following types:
1. Against foreigners, even the sec-
ond and third generation American.
2. Against minority religious faiths,
particularly Jewish and Catholic.
3. Against the economically under-
4. Against the minority racial
groups, particularly the Negro.
Until we completely overcome these
prejudices, we will not be able to
have full effect in our international
affairs, Dr. Johnston said.
