Soviet Policy
In Hungary
WASHINGTON, July 26-(P)-The
United States today accused Russia
of stripping Hungary of food supplies
and vitally-needed industrial mater-
It virtually demanded that the
Soviet Union join with this govern-
ment and Britain to halt "the pre-
sent economic disintegration" of the
Hungarian nation.
Letter to Molotov
The State Department made public
a strongly-worded letter which Am-
bassador W. Bedell Smlith delivered
on Tuesday to Foreign Minister Molo-
This letter flatly rejected a whole
series of Soviet claims that Russia
was not interfering with economic
conditions in Hungary.
The letter, presented on direct in-
structions from Washington, sharply
reminded Molotov that Premier Stal-
in, Prime Minister Churchill and
President Roosevelt had agreed at
the Yalta Conference to work to-
gether to help the former Axis shtel-
lite states solve their "pressing poli-
tical and economic problems." Smith
frankly implied that the Russians
were not living up to this agreement.
Russian reparations demands and
the Red Army's policy of living off
the country were blamed as the
causes of Russia's removals of ma-
terials from Hungary.°
Disputes Moscow Contention
Smith disputed contentions which
he said had been made previously by
the Moscow government, that Hun-
gary's plight was in any way due to
the failure of the United States to
restore to Hungary, property which
the Germans had stolen and which
now is in the American zones of Ger-
many and Austria.
He called "grossly exaggerated" the
Russian estimate on this point, that
the United States is holding Hungar-
ian property worth $3,000;000,000.
Gerald Eddy Named
New State Geologist
LANSING; July 26-(R)-Gerald E.
Eddy, a graduate of Michigan State
College and the University of Michi-
gan, today was named Michigan State
He succeeds R. A. Smith, who is
retiring August 1 after 35 years of
service with the state. '
Eddy will be Michigan's 10th state
geologist since the Michigan Geologi-
cal Survey was established 109 years
ago. He joined the geological survey
division in 1933, and from 1942 to
1945 served in the Army as a cap-

(seated), signs OPA revival bill in White House ceremony. He is sur-
rounded by OPA regional administrators. OPA Administrator Paul
Porter looks on at left.
Books of Early Days Warned

Negroes Slain
By Unmasked
Four Victims Claimed
In Georgia Massacre
MONROE, Ga., July 16-(kP)-The
mob spirit has flared among a group
of armed but unmasked white men
here resulting in the bloody massacre
of two Negro farm hands and their
The grotesquely sprawled bodies of
the victims-the coroner said at least
60 bullets were pumped into them-
were found in a clump of bushes be:
side a little, used sideroad.
The hands of the two men were
bound behind them. The hands of the
women were free. The upper part of
the bodies were scarcely recognizable
from the mass of bullet holes.
The women were sisters.
The stark rural tragedy-first of'
its kind in Georgia since long before
the war-occurred about eight miles
from here late yesterday, but the
story did not "leak out" until today.
Monroe is 40 miles northeast of me-
tropolitan Atlanta.
A few hours later Attorney Gen-
eral Tom Clark's office in Washing-
ton announced that a "complete in-
vestigation" had been ordered into
the multiple lynching.
Without. further elaboration, the
announcement from Washington said
that the Federal inquiry would be
carried out by the Civil Rights Sec-
tion of the Department of Justice.

Maynard Klein of New Orleans, will

Central Control of Michigan's
Colleges Considered Unlikely

R E L. Ef

Dr. Eugene B. Elliott, State Super-
intendent'of Public Instruction, is3
pessimistic regarding future integra-
tion of Michigan's system of higher
In Ann Arbor for the Summer Ed-
ucation Conference, Dr. Elliott told
The Daily yesterday that he expects
little progress can be successfully
made toward the establishment of
an over-all board to control the de-
velopment of the state's rapidly-ex-
panding colleges and the University
of Michigan.
He was recently appointed chair-
man of a committee of which will
make recommendations to the state
legislature for survey methods ex-
pected to culminate in some sort of
unifying action.
Dr. Elliott described the system of
higher education in Michigan as too
complex for a single control and in-
dicated that requirements of the vari-
ous schools would prohibit effective
cooperation in an integration pro-
"We have our hands full with only
the four educational colleges:al-
ready," he said. "To attempt to add
the University of Michigan, Michi-
gan State,rand possibly Wayne Uni-
versity to the picture would seem to
me almost out of the question."
He promised however that the new
board,, personnel of which has not
yet been named, will thoroughly study
the problem before offering sugges-
tions for action to the legislature.
Representatives from the Uni-
versity, Michigan State, the Michi-
gan Colleges Association, Wayne
University, the Michigan Junior
Colleges Association, and the Mich-
igan College of Mines at Houghton
will participate in the study at the
request of a five-man special com-
mittee from the State Legislature.
Proponents of the integration plan
contend that by unified control, the
state's college's could offer better

training, avoid unnecessary expense
resulting from over-lapping of func-
tions, and reduce the possibility of
friction in the quest for state funds
for expansion.
It was expected that the Board of
Regents would name Michigan's re-
-presentative yesterday, but no action
was taken.


Kaiser-F razer



Au tos Appear
In .Detroit Show
DETROIT, July 26 -(P)- Kaiser-
Frazer Corp. gave its Kaiser and Fra-
zer automobiles their first public
hometown showing today in a pre-
sentation at Detroit's Convention
Along with the new automobiles
there were also put on display most
of the group of farm implements now
in production or to be made, like the
two passenger cars, at the big Willow
Run plant west of here. The farm
vehicles include a newly-announced
"full two-plow Frazer tractor" named
for Joseph W. Frazer, president of
Kaiser-Frazer, and a line of 34 trac-
tor-drawn implements.
The Kaiser car shown today was
the newly designed "special" that
replaced the earlier projected- front-
wheel Kaiser model. Generally it
follows the specifications of the Fra-
Both cars are powered with six-
cylinder, 100 horsepower engines; use
identical bodies, with 1231/2 inch
wheelbase and overall length of 203
inches. They differ mainly in their
Prices, according to Frazer, are
to be disclosed on August 15. Current
conjecture is that the Frazer will
sell for around $1,600 and the Kaiser
at from $150 to $200 less.

s ...



Lessons in "right living" were justy
as important as lessons in reading
and writing to the textbook writers'
of a century ago.
This fast was revealed in a recent
survey of a historical collection of
textbooks in the School of Education.
Marked contrast was shown between
these books and an exhibit of modern
textbooks on display at the Univer-
sity High School in connection with
the University's annual Summer Ed-
ucation Conference.
The historical collection of text-
books contains approximately 6,-
000 volumes, most of them publish-
ed between 1800 and 1900, and
brought together to provide stu-
dents of the history of education
with a survey of the development
of American textbooks. Included
ini the collection are several editions
of Webster's spelling book and the
famous McGuffey readers.
The science student of a hundred
years ago found texts far different
from 'those of today-an 1828 text-
book, for instance, takes no notice of
the atom .at all. A text of 1834 is
entitled "Chemistry, Meteorology and
the Function of Digestion Consid-
ered with' Reference to Natural The-
A warning to students is sounded
in a text of "Anatomy, Physiology

and Hygiene," published in 1849,
which declares that "when the brain
is properly called into action by
vigorous study, it increases in size
and strength; if it is not used, the
action of this organ is enfeebled,
thereby diminishing the function of
all parts of the body."
An elementary arithmetic used
by students in 1835 contains prob-
lems dealing with English currency
and instructs the student in proper
measurements for beer and ale.
Grammar school boys and girls
found their readers designed more
for character-building than for in-
terest. An 1856 sample includes se-
lections entitled "The Government of
the Tongue" and "Miseries of Indol-
ence" as well as such informative
pieces as "The Results of Machinery"
and "Great Values of Water in Hot
