British Force
To Conitinue
Troops Will Aid
In Greek Crisis
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Aug. 9-Great
Britain was reported by diplomat-
ic authorities today to have reas-
sured the United States that Brit-
ish troops will not be pulled has-
tily out of Greece, despite earlier
plans to withdraw them by Au-
The British force now there is
small, numbering only about 6,000
men, but both American and Brit-
ish officials regard the presence
of this group as a stabilizing fac-
Ktor in Greece.
Fresh rumors that it would
\ be withdrawn as part of Brit-
ain's economy campaign were'
described authoritatively here as
at least partly responsible for
an increase in popular jitters in
Greece recently. This nervous
situation was reflected in re-
ports from Athens that the
money market there had shown
a rise in the Drachma value of
the gold sovereign. Observers
in Athens describe this as the
usual forerunner of a govern-
mental crisis.
American policy in stemming
Communism in Greece appears to
be aimed at preventing any kind
of crisis, certainly in the period
during which the American assist-
4nce program to Greece is being
set up by administrator Dwight
P. Griswold.
Pumors about the withdrawal
of British troops - rumors
which actually were in line with
pervious British policy state-
ments-were said by officials
here to be only one of various
factors disturbing the Greek
political situation and compli-
cating the task before Griswold.
Other upsetting influences in-
clude (1) the Russian veto late
last month of the American pro-
posal to create .a United Nations
Greek border commission and (2)
persistent reports that Greece's
Communist neighbor states have
some sort. of international bri-
gade ready to go into action at the
proper moment.

DETROIT, Aug. 9-()--An es-
timated 32,0000 Ford Motor Co.
employes, laid off last Wednesday,
will return to work Monday in
the face of a manufacturing
schedule curtailed by shortages.
Assembly lines, employing an
additional 19,000 workers, will re-

hours longer than originally
A strike of 7,000 CIO employes
of the Murray Corp. of America
was blamed by the company for
much of its production difficulties.
Warned Curtailment
Ford spokesmen warned several
days ago that continuation of the
Murray strike would force a cur-
tailment of its operations to "two
or three days a week." Murray
supplies Ford with body frames
and parts.
The CIO United Auto Workers
demanded of Murray a clause
banning law suits for contract
violations as permitted under the
Taft-Hartley law.
The Federal Conciliation Ser-
vice intervened Friday in the Mur-
ray strike in an attempt to affect
a settlement.
The same Tait-Hartley issue
was settled on a temporary basis
between Ford and the UAW-CIO
Tuesday a few hours before a
scheduled walkout of 107,000 pro-
duction workers.

The two sides agreed to submit
the question to a commission of
two members each from the un-

Robert A. Waldrop, director of
the Veterans Service Bureau, cau-

the last day to file their claims
to leave payments. He pointed
out that September 1, falling on
a Monday, is Labor Day, and
chances are that government ag-

Attlee Faces
New Conflict
Opponents Claim
By The Associated Press
LONDON, Aug. 9-Prime Minis-
ter Attlee, accused by the conserv-
atives of seeking "totalitarian
powers" to deal with Britain's eco-
nomic crisis, faced a new conflict
within his own labor party to-
night over the government's na-
tionalization program.
Persistent but unconfirmed re-
ports that some cabinet members
were opposed to carrying out plans
to nationalize the steel industry
during the crisis were followed
by the calling of a special private
meeting of labor members of par-
liament for Monday.
One political writer said left-
ist intellectuals and trade un-
ion members would demand a
direct "yes" or "no" answer on
steel from Attlee.
Tomorrow night Attlee will out-
line to the people of Britain over
the BBC his work-more-eat-less
program for staving off economic
Most London newspapers car-
ried stories reporting dissatisfac-
tion among laborites with Attlee's
"anti-crisis" program. The Daily
Express political writer said maj-
or changes in the government"
may result from a rift over the
future of the steel industry.
"If a state monopoly is decid-
ed upon, Mr. John Wilmot, the
minister of supply, will go out,
and Mr. Aneurin Bevan, health
minister, will move over to sup-
ply to take charge of steel,"
said the Daily Express. "If the
ministers decide to postpone or
water down the nationalization
scheme, Mr. Bevan is likely to
leave the government."
Government sources declined to
comment on the reports. Key min-
isters were reported conferring
with Attlee over the week end to
outline his reply to labor critics
Other political writers said For-
eign Minister Ernest Bevin,
Chancellor of the Exchequer Hugh
Dalton and Deputy Prime Minis-
ter Herbert Morrison were report-
ed favoring postponement of plans
to nationalize steel.
In addition to outlining his
stand on Steel Attlee was expect-
ed to answer left wing socialist
critics who attacked as "inade-
quate" government plans to cut
the armed froces from 1,300,000
men to 1,007,000 by next March.

HUGHES' FLYING BOAT-Here is an air view of the world', :rgest airplane, the eight-engined
aerial cargo boat designed and built by Howard Hughes. 'The $30,000,000 plane is part of an inves-

still earthbound, was contracted for in 1942. .The Government put $18,000,000 into its construc-

Earth Tremor
Hits Residents
In Ann Arbor
Quake in Midwest
Causes No Damage
An Ann Arbor resident was
rudely awakened last night when
her bed collapsed under her dur-
ing a one minute earth tremor
which shook the Midwest at 9:47
The shock was centered about
150 to 200 miles from Ann Arbor,
according to Prof. James T. Wil-
son of the Geology Department.
Prof. Wilson said that if the
tremor had centered in or near a
large city some damage could have
been caused. However, as the Dail3
went to press, reports indicated nc
damage other than broken win-
dows and dishes.
The University seismograph re-
corded the tremor for one minute.
It reached its peak at the 30 sec-
ond point, Prof. Wilson said.
George Hoffman, graduate stud-
ent, told the Daily that
he was working in the Rackhan
Building when the tremor occurr-
ed and that the building shool
very perceptibly. "At first
thought several heavy truck:
were passing in front, but the
shaking lasted too long," he said
adding that the lights outsid
flickered during the quake.

Heredity Clinic Does Pioneer
Work in Human Inheritance

If you're wondering just howt
big a chip off the old block yout
are, a visit to the Heredity Clin-
ic, the only one of its kind in the
country and possibly in the world,c
ought to clear up the question.
Strategically situated behind
the Maternity Hospital the Here-
dity Clinic staff members are un-
dertaking pioneer research in thej
inheritance of human traits and
their modes of transmission. They
are especially interested in the
traits which have not been pre-.
viously -worked out, as well as new
modes of transmission.
Beliefs Cause
Of Expulsion
Charges that a student at Mich-
igan State College "is being ex-
pelled for his political beliefs and
for no other reason" w e r e
levelled yesterday by Edward
Shaffer, University student and
member of the local chapter of
American Youth for Democracy.
James Zarichny, a member of
the Spartan AYD, told The Daily
that he had recently been asked
to transfer to another institution.
He produced a letter from Dean
S. C. Crowe of MSC which read:
"You will recall that we had a
conversation in regard to the ad-
visability of your making arrange-
ments to continue your college
work at some other institution.
"I believe that this advice
should be carried out. A trans-
fer of your credits can be obtain-
ed from the Registrar's office."
Zarichny said he has been re-
peatedly accused of breaking the
terms of the probation upon which
all members of the Spartan AYD
were placed last spring when the
organization was barred from the
East Lansing campus. He has
denied any active participation
in the AYD since that time.
The MSC student said he has
been accused of being a "propa-
gandist." None of the charges
have been made in writing, he
Declaring that "this expulsion
is a definite infringement on the
liberties of all students," Shaffer.
urged University students to "send
immediately letters of protest to
President Hannah of Michigan
State College."
Michigan State officials have
thus far failed to comment upon
the charges.

The Heredity Clinic is main-r
tained by research grants from
the Horace H. Rackham School of
Graduate Studies.t
Teachers, preachers, lawyers, so-
cial service agencies and about 250
families a year are given free ad-
vice on heredity problems. The
most common one brought to the
clinic is the problem of the de-
fective child. Parents are natur-
ally concerned ,about whether or
not such a birth is the result of
their hereditary makeup, whether
they might have other children at
all, and whether their other child-
ren would have a similar defect.
Social Service
Social Service agencies are re-
ferred to the clinic for advice on
the placement of children. They;
want to place children in homes
where the children's traits are
compatible with those of the fos-
ter parents. Sometimes enough
information can be derived from
the real mother's hereditary back-
ground so that placement can be
satisfactory for the foster parents
and the child.
More and more couples are com-
ing to the clinic for premarital
advice about the inheritance of
traits. Ordinarily doctors are not
trained in human heredity or else
they don't have enough time. The
clinic never prescribes treatment
but acts in an advisory capacity.
Sometimes these couples know of
one particular trait which causes
them concern and sometimes they
come for a general checkup.
Background Checked
The hereditary background of
these people is carefully examined
and as many members of the fam-
ily as possible are checked. This
latter sometimes involves "field
trips" for the staff members be-
cause remote members of the
family are often reluctant to come
to Ann Arbor for examination.
They feel that nothing is wrong
with them even if their eight
cousins are determined to be ex-
amined. A pedigree is then drawn
up and with that information the
information is examined statisti-
cally and the predictions of the in-
heritance of traits and their modes
of transmission are made.
Dr. Lee R. Dice, director of the
Laboratory of Verterbrate Biology
which maintains the clinic, feels
that every community should have
a heredity clinic, supported by the
government because the work is
related to public health.
"The government spends a great
deal of money on the heredity of
cows but not a cent on human
heredity," he said. Such a clinic
should not employ compulsory
techniques but should function in
an advisory capacity, he added.

lughes Gives
Elis Story of
Entertainin g
Officers Called
Him 'Stuck Up'
By The Associated Press
,rd Hughes told Senate invesigat-
rs today he began spending for
ntertainment when he got confi-
ential word that Army officers
onsidered him a "stuck up" rich
nan who wouldn't "kow tow."
Also, the millionaire plane de-
igner, manufacturer and flier sol-
mnly testified that he will leave
he country for good if his giant,
nuch-criticized cargo plane fails
;o fly.
Hughes told a war investigat-
ng subcommittee, "my reputation
s rolled up in it.
The subcommittee is investi-
gating the wartime contract the
government gave Hughes and
industrialist Hent~y J. Kaiser for
the aerial cargo craft - the
world's biggest plane. It also is
looking into Hughes' contract
during the war for photographic
reconnaissance planes.
None of either type was deliver-
d while the fightingkwas on. Te
ommittee wants to know why.
Hughes told the questioning
S e n a t o r Ferguson (R-Mch.),
chairman of the subcommittee,
about his venture into entertain-
ment as a plane builder.
He said he had heard that Army
officers considered him a "stuck
up" rich man who thought him-
self too good for them and sat
'out in my bailwick in Holly-
wood instead of coming to Wright
Field to kow tow.
It was then, he sai he author-
ized spending for entertainment.
But in an almost hurt tone, he
denied that any entertainment
expenses were part of some
$150,000 in costs for the flying
boat which he said the govern-
ment refused to allow. Fergus-
on had asked him about that.
Before the committee quit for
the day-the hearing goes on
again Monday-Hughes testified,
1. He "certainly" knows of no
"fraud or corruption" on anyone's
part in obtaining the contract for
the 200-ton flying boat.
2. The "hatred" of Army offi-
cers prevented his getting orders
for other planes before the war.
3. It appeared "more than a co-
incidence" that the Lockheed
Company designed a twin-engine
interceptor plane, which became
the famous P-38 Lightning, after
the Army compelled him to "sit"
four months on a similar design
and Lockheed hired engineers he
had to lay off.
4. The Army turned down a
pre-war plane, with which he set
new world and cross-country
speed records, because of its can-
tilever construction - a type
Hughes said is used now in all
5. The big cargo boat has been
structurally complete for months.
What is holding up the test is the
trouble with controls.
6. The ship will not be "enor-
mously efficient" or set any new
speed records.
7. No one ever has "shown me
any proof" that the late Presi-

dent Roosevelt "acted insincerely"
in over-ruling underlings and or-
dering completion of the plane.
