Meredith Directs
Director of "Pigeons and People"
is Cllarles Meredith, visiting producer
from Le Petit Theatre du Vieux Carre
in New Orleans. Herbert Philippi is
designer-technician of scenery; Miss
Lucy Barton is costumiere.
Described as "the- larkiest thing
Cohan ever wrote" and "the most
spectacular stunt ever seen in a
theatre", the plot revolves about a
stranger, received in a swanky house-
hold, who prefers the society of pig-
eons. "Parker", who travels under
an assumed name, astounds his hosts,
un-nerves and frightens a round of
callers, dismays police and airs his
opinion of people and his preference
for the pigeons he feeds in the park.
Comic State of Mind
The play is described by Cohan,
the author, as "a comic state of mind
in continuous action."
Seats for the four evening per-
formances and the Saturday matinee
are on sale at the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre box office, phone 6300.

Fraud Vote'
--Mikolajczk

Polish Leader Shows
Partly Burned Ballots
WARSAW, July 13 -(A') - Vice
Premier Stanislaw Mikolajczyk, head
of the. opposition Polish Peasant
Party, declared today that he would
demand that the Provisional Govern-
ment nullify the referendum rof June
30 on the grounds of irregularity in
voting and in counting of ballots.
At a news conference for foreign
correspondents he exhibited a thou-
sand partially burned and destroyed
ballots he said were salvaged from
sewers and refuse heaps.
He charged that many partially de-
stroyed ballots with negative votes
were dumped into the sewers and
that around Warsaw alone "thou-
sands" of ballots were burned or
partially destroyed.
Yesterday referendum Commission-
er Barczikowski said in a statement
that previous charges made by Mink-
olajczyk of irregularities and fraud
in the voting and counting were not
confirmed by an investigation. The
commission admitted that in some
instances ballots were removed to
other places for counting and that
some provincial committees had bar-
red Polish Peasant Party members
from election commissions.
(A Moscow Radio broadcast said
tonight that the results of the refer-
endum proved beyond question that
the Polish people are behind their
government and that "no fresh man-
euvers by the Mikolajczyk group and
its patrons abroad can minimize the
significance of the fact that Polish
reaction has lost.")
Mikolajczyk charged that before,
during and after the referendum gov-
ernment security police arrested more
than 5,000 Peasant Party members.
VETERANS'
NOTES
The Veterans Administiation has
announced that it has no authority
to pay any benefits to a veteran for
injury, or aggravation of a previous
condition, while he or she is enrolled
for educational or training benefits
of the Servicemen's Readjustment
Act.
This is based on a decision of the
Solicitor for the Administrator of
Veterans Affairs. It also states the
VA does not have the authority to
pay benefits where an injury is the
result of hospital or medical, in-
cluding surgical, treatment furnished
by the school or training institution
as an incident of the education or
training under this act.
However, under Public Law 16 pro-
viding vocational rehabilitation for
disabled veterans, the VA is author-
ized certain benefit payments to a
veteran injured in the course of
training.

CHARLES MEREDITH ... Direc-
tor of Le Petit Theatre du Vieux
Carre in New Orleans, will direct
the next Department of Speech Re-
pertory play, "Pigeons and People."
Negro Voters
Purged From
Primary Lists
ATLANTA, July 13-(/P)-The Fed-
eral Courts and the Justice Depart-
ment moved today to consider the
mass purging of Negroes from the
voting lists in politically embroiled
Georgia.
Hundreds of Negroes registered for
the first time to vote in the July 17
Democratic primary-the actual elec-
tion-have been disqualified. The
purging in some counties is still un-
der way.
The latest unofficial figures show
that 134,351 Negroes have registered
to vote for the first time in Georgia.
This compares with a white registra-
tion of 1,017,036. White outnumber
Negroes 3 to 1 in Georgia.
Federal Judge Frank M. Scarlett at
Runswick ordered a halt to whole-
sale disenfranchisement of Negroes
in Atkinson County in South Georgia.
Registrars of three other South Geor-
gia counties were ordered to appear
for a hearing Monday.
Two Yugoslav
Soldiers Killed
TRIESTE, July 13-MA)-Two Yu-
goslav soldiers were killed by an
American patrol last night in brief
skirmishes near the Morgan Line,
and today American troops in the
area of the zonal boundary were
placed on the alert.
The U.S. 88th Division announced
that two separate Yugoslav patrols
opened fire on the American patrol
investigating a Yugoslav violation of
the Morgan line. The line divides Yu-
goslav and American-British zones of
occupation in disputed Venezia Giu-
lia.
Women Vets Plan
Social Organization
A plan to form a social organiza-
tion for the women veterans on cam-
pus will be discussed at a meeting
to be held tomorrow at 8:00 p.m.
in the Michigan League, Anne Dearn-
ley, head of the preliminary planning
committee, announced.
The proposed organization would
enable the 126 ex-service women to
become better acquainted, being es-
pecially helpful for those who will
live at Willow Run in the fall, Miss
Dearnley added.
The first social activity planned
for the group will be a picnic at
6 p.m., July 19, on the "Island."

Senate Passes
Bureau Merger
By Close Vote
Proposal Is Fought
By Republican Group
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, July 13 -One of
three presidential plans for merging
and streamlining government agen-
cies squeezed through Congress today
when the Senate heeded a plea of
Democratic leader Barkley (Ky.) to
"scrape some of the barnacles from
the ship of state."
The Senate, by a ballot announced
as 37 to 30, voted down a resolution
disapproving a plan which proposed
that the Grazing Service and Gen-
eral Land Office be combined into a
single Bureau of Land Management
in the Interior Department.
Fought by Republicans, that was
the biggest of a dozen-odd shifts in
"Reorganization Plan No. 3."
The House already had rejected
the plan, and two other President
Truman sent to Congress on May 16.
Under the Reorganization Act, all
three go into effect automatically at
midnight Monday - 60 days after
submission - unless both Senate and
House turn them down.
Battling against time, Republicans
maneuvered to shove the remaining
two plans to a showdown in the Sen-
ate before Monday's deadline. They
complained that the Truman plans
would not do the reorganization job
Congress intended, and that Sena-
tors had not had sufficient time to
study them.
Byrnes Reports
On Conference
Monday Night
PARIS, July 13-(/P)-Secretary of
State James F. Byrnes said today
he would report to his nation Mon-
day night on results of the month
long Foreign Ministers Conference
in which he said the United States
accepted some compromises on Eur-
opean treaty proposals td avoid a
"clash that nobody wants."
Byrnes, last of the three visiting
Foreign Ministers to leave France,
flew from Orly Field on the presi-
dential plane, "The Sacred Cow," at
1:55 p.m. (7:55 a.m., EST) bound for
Iceland and Washington. Those ac-
companying him included U.S. Sena-
tors Tom Connally, (Dem., Tex.) and
Arthur H. Vandenberg (Rep., Mich.)
and their wives.
British Foreign Secretary Ernest
Bevin departed two hours earlier.
The Soviet Foreign Minister, V. M.
Molotov, took off for Moscow early
in the morning.
Byrnes told a news conference be-
fore leaving that he would press for
a new.meeting of the Foreign Minis-
ters of the four powers after the
forthcoming European place confer-
ence here July 29, and before the
meeting of the United Nations in
New York, tentatively set for Sept.
23.
Russian Espionage
Trial In Last Phase
SEATTLE, July 13-01)-A gov-
ernment attorney today told a jury
trying Nicolai G. Redin on espion-
age-conspiracy charges that the Rus-
sian naval lieutenant "could have
become in his own land a greater
hero than the man who guided the
Russian hordes into Berlin."
In the government's opening final
argument, Victor E. Anderson, a
special assistant to the U.S. At-

torney General, from St. Paul, Minn.,
said that "this courtroom would nev-
er have heard this trial if Redin had
obtained all the secret information
he requested" from Herbert Kennedy,
shipyard worker.
"The government could not have
afforded to disclose the situation if
Redin had obtained the informa-
tion," he said. "We, would rather
have lost the trial but we caught
him before these documents saw the
light of day."
