Michigan Captain Faces Jack Coyle,
,LIUFreshman, in 36-Hole Match
By ARC!IE PARSONS
Wielding his irons with unfailing accuracy, Dave Barclay, Michi-
gan's golf captain and a great competitive golfer, earned the right
yesterday to meet Louisiana State's Jack Coyle in the 36-hole final of
the National Collegiate Golf Championships, beginning at 9:30 a.m.
today on the University course.
The second half of the final will begin at 2:00 p.m.
Barclay eliminated two of the finest collegiate golfers in the na-
tion, Bill Campbell of Princeton and Oregon's Lou Stafford, in the
quarter- and semi-final rounds of * * *
the individual match play. He "
gave the gallery-an extremely
small one for what is probably the'
second best amateur tournament
in the country-a brilliant display
of steady nerves and accuratek
irons. ".'
Rated the underdog in both
matches after having barely qual-
ified for the tourney, he whipped
Campbell, one up, on the last x~.
hole in the morning round, and
came from behind in the after-
noon to whip Stafford, 2 and 1, by ..
sinking a 25-foot putt on the 17th
hole.
Coyle, a freshman from Spring-
field, Ill., who was the sixth low
amateur in the National Open last
year, qualified for the champion-
ship match by defeating Tom
Lambie of Stanford, one up, in the
morning, and coming back to up-s
set the highly-favored Charlie Coe -h ' is-
of Oklahoma University one up,
on the 19th hole in the semi-finals. DAVE BARCLAY
Coe, a tall, slender golfer who enters NCAA golf finals

champ, was obviously worn to a
frazzle by his morning match with Pla rs' Bl l

in which he defeated the pre-tour-
ney favorite who was runner-up To Open With

New Veteran
Attendance
Plan in Effect
One Report Due
For Full Session
A revised absence report sys-
tem, wherebystudent veterans
will be required to file a single'
record of absences at the close of
the summer session, was an-
nounced yesterday by Robert S.
Waldrop, director of the Veterans
Service Bureau.
Forms will be sent this week to
all veterans enrolled under the
benefits of the G.I. Bill, on which
they will be asked to record their
week by week absences to be tal
lied and returned on a designated
date.
New Scheme
The-new scheme marks a de-
parture from that in effect last
semester, in which veterans were
required to file reports each week
with their respective schools and
colleges. Resulting confusion and
widespread criticism gave rise to
the new plan.
Whether or not a similar ar-
rangement will be in effect in the
fall has not yet been determined,
according to Waldrop. He added,
however, that the degree of suc-
cess with which the new plan
meets might well influence a de-
cision along those lines.
(The Veterans Administration
has required the University to re-
port absences as a means of de-
termining the amount of leave to
which a student is entitled. Lack
of a regular absence report sys-
tem as part of the University's
normal procedure has called for
the devising of a scheme which is
at once, effective and convenient.)
Report Deadline
Student veterans enrolled in the
six-week session are required to
file their reports by July 28, while
the deadline for those in the eight
week session is August 11. Stu-
dents enrolling in the four week
post session must file by Septem-
ber 12.
Those whose enrollment in-
cludes two sessions, should file at
the close of the later one.
The forms may either be mailed
to the Veterans Service Bureau, or
deposited at any of a number of
stations about the campus. The
whereabouts of the stations are
designated on the forms.
Deadline Set
For Amputees
Tomorrow Last Day
To Apply for Autos
Veterans eligible under legis-
lation providing cars for legaam-
putees must file their applications
by tomorrow or forfeit their
rights to the $1,600 autos.
Forms are available at the Vet-
erans Service Bureau, 100 Rack-
ham Building. Robert A. Wald-
rop, director of the Bureau, re-
iterated his request made last
week that those who, through neg-
ligence, had not yet applied should
delay no longer.
Tomorrow is the last day, too,
for veterans to enlist in the En-
listed Reserve Corps with the same
grades they held at time of dis-
charge. Only those discharged
on or after May 12, 1945 are eli-
gible.
Slosson To Lecture
Prof. Preston W. Slosson of the

history department will analyze
the organization of the United Na-
tions in a talk entitled "The Big
Five and the Little Fifty-Five" at
4:10 p.m. tomorrow in Rackham

Driving Without Permits
'U' Officials Warn Drivers To Register;
Completion of Registration Card Inadequate
An estimated 600 University students are now driving cars in Ann
Arbor without official University permission.
That is the approximate number of students who have indicated
they intend to use cars here during the summer session but have failed
to register their cars with the University.
University officials stress that all students desiring to drive who
are not qualified for exemption from the Automobile Regulation must
make personal application for driving privileges at Rm. 2, University
Hall, or become subject to disciplinary action.

Lawyer Tells AFL
Union Not to Sign
No-Strike Clauses
Counsel Advises Early Test Case
Of Taft-Hartley Expenditure Ban
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, June 28-All AFL unions will be advised not to
sign any future wage contract which contains a no-strike clause, AFL
counsel Joseph Padway declared tonight.
After a conference of 100 AFL attorneys, Padway said the lawyers
also will advise their unions to "affirmatively violate" the Taft-Hartley
acts' ban on union political expenditures, to bring about a constitu-
tional test of the law.
He said the unions also will work to defeat the legislators who
supported the act.
To Name Enemies

Hornbeck Will
Open Annual
Lecture Series
Speaker To Discuss
'U.S. and East Indies'
Stanley K. Hornbeck, Chief of
the Division of Far Eastern Af-
fairs of the State Department,
will open the fourth annual sum-
mer session lecture series on pub-
lic affairs with a discussion of
"The United States and the Neth-
erlands East Indies" at 8:10 p.m.
Wednesday in Rackham Lecture
Hall.
The lecture will be the first of
a series of 20 entitled "The Unit-
ed States in World Affairs" which
will continue through Aug. 8.
Netherland Ambassador
Hornbeck recently served as
American ambassador to the
Netherlands and was formerly Ad-
viser on Political Relations of the
State Department.
A lecturer at the University in
the summer of 1917, Hornbeck
holds the degrees of Ph.D., L.H.D.,
LL.D., and Litt.D.
The second lecture in the ser-
ies will be delivered by P.obin A.
Humphreys, Reader in American
History at the University of Lon-
don, at 4:10 p.m. Tuesday, July 8.
in Rackham Amphitheatre. His
topic will be "Policies and Ten-
dencies in Latin America."
In addition to the lectures,
three series of informal confer-
ences will be held; one on the
United Nations, a second on Latin
American affairs and a third on
European affairs. Each confer-
ence will meet once a week for
four weeks starting July 15 and
will be open to summer session
students, faculty members and the
interested public.
'Genuine Opportunity'
President Alexander G. Ruth-
ven has termed the lecture ser-
ies "a genuine opportunity for the
entire University community."
According to Dr. Louis A. Hop-
kins, director of the Summer Ses-
sion, "some of the lectures will be
concerned rather directly with
American policy, while other lec-
tures will deal more particularly
with geographical areas or with
problems where American inter-
ests' are involved."
Speakers for the series have
been selected from public life, gov-
ernment service and universities.

nanyi.
Former concertmaster with the
Cleveland Orchestra, Prof. Knit-
zer has appeared with the New
York Philharmonic, the Phila-
delphia and Detroit Orchestras.
He appeared in the May Festival
here with Jose Iturbi several years
ago.
Prof. Knitzer will be heard in
several concerts throughout the
summer season.

tration card does not fulfill this
obligation. Permit "tags" obtain-
ed during the past year are not
valid during the summer session.
Exempt Class
The authorized exemptions in-
clude 1.) those who are 26 years of
age or over and 2.) those who have
a facultyrating of Teaching Fel-
low or its equivalent. An addi-
tional provision, in effect during
the summer session, exempts those
"who, during the preceding aca-
demic year, were engaged in pro-
fessional pursuits; e.g., teachers,
lawyers, physicians, dentists, nurs-
es, etc."
Students who fall into the "ex-
empt" class are not required to
apply for driving privileges.
Special Provision
Special permission allowing stu-
dents to drive is generally grant-

Couples To Get
Another Try
At Apartments
That Mecca for married vet-
erans - the University Terrace
Apartments - may seem just a
little closer to many patient and
homelessestudents tomorrow, but
it's probably a "false alarm."
The waiting list for residence in
the Terrace Apartments will be re-
opened to married veterans of
World War I tomorrow for three
lays.
University officials stress, how-
ever, that there are no vacancies
now and they do not expect any
vacancies during the summer ses-
sion.
The Office of Student Affairs,
Rm. 2, University Hall, will accept
applications from 9 a.m. to noon
and from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. today
through Wednesday.
The administration has estab-
lished a policy of opening the
waiting list shortly after the be-
ginning of each term.
Only married veterans who have
completed two terms in the Uni-
versity may apply. Each appli-
cant must file with his application
his Military Record and Report of
Separation.
All applications will be consid-
ered according to a priority sys-
tem outlining certain qualifica-
tions. The system affords special
consideration to Michigan resi-
dents, veterans with long over-
seas service and veterans who have
incurred serious physical disabil-
ity.
Veterans who have previously
filed applications for the Terrace
Apartments should not apply;
again, since their applications arei
being processed according to the
established qualifications.
Press Survey
Checks Post
OPA Prices
CHICAGO, June 28 - (A') - A
year after OPA encountered a'
sudden uproar of accusations and
defenses, the American people to-
day find prices higher and goods
more plentiful.
That is the conclusion drawn
from an Associated Press survey
of what happened since the gov-
ernment price-fixing agency ex-
pired June 30, 1946, after President
Truman vetoed as inadequate a
congressional bill extending the
agency's life.I
Subsequently the OPA was re- 1
vived, but it stalked the land only1

as a ghost of its former robust self.
It was interred by degrees as ceil-
ings were removed from one com-
modity after another, and its bur-
ial came in December when its re-
maining powers were transferred
to other agencies.
Looking at the results, the na-

Molotov Joins
Bevin, Bidault
Report Russia Ready
To Strangle Aid Plan
PARIS, June 28-(/P)-Armed
with what French sources said
were up-to-the-minute instruc-
tions from Moscow, Soviet Foreign
Minister V. M. Molotov tardily
joined his British and French col-
leagues in the Aid-to-Europe con-
ference for a session of nearly
three hours tonight.
What word he had to take to
British Foreign Secretary Ernest
Bevin and French Foreign Min-
ister Georges Bidault was not like-
ly to leak out for a day or two
in view of the official lid on news
of the sessions.
But pessimism and bickering al-
ready had settled down upon the
conference, and one source close
to the chiefs of the French dele-
gate said he had the impression
that the Russians were bent upon
a course that would slowly stran-
gle U. S. Secretary of State Mar-
shall's program of U.S. aid to Eur-
ope if Europeans will cooperate
among themselves. He gained the
impression from talks with his
delegation that Russian questions
at yesterday's opening sessions
were directed at bringing up the
same old issues that stymied the
foreign ministers council in Mos-
cow. These questions arose be-
fore Molotov had received the lat-
est official comments from the
Kremlin, however.

"The unions will not refrain
from publishing that Senator Taft
(Rep., Ohio), and Rep. Hartley
(Rep., N.J.) are avowed enemies
of the principles of organized la-
bor," Padway told reporters.
"We will request AFL members
to defeat them when they are up
for election, and to spend money
publicizing the records of Taft-
Hartley and those persons who
from publishing that Senator Taft
(Rep., N.J.) are avowed enemies
acted in concert with them in our
own publications, over the radio
and in newspapers."
May Disregard NLRB
Padway indicated that some
highly skilled and well entrenched
unions will be advised to disregard
the new National Labor Relations
Board entirely and that most un-
ions will get a recommendation
not to comply with the new law's
requirement that officers of
NLRB-recognized unions file affi-
davits that "they are are not Com-
munists.
The AFL lawyers, meeting in ad-
vance of a mass policy conference
of international union officers
here called by President Green for
July 9, are unanimous in their be-
lief that the prohibition of politi-
cal expenditures by unions is un-
constitutional, Padway said. The
section has been interpreted to
outlaw political comment in un-
ion-supported newspapers.
"No-Strike" Clauses,
As for the "no-strike" clauses,
Padway said these are generally
given by unions in return for the
closed shop.
"Since now unions cannot have
the closed shop and cannot eject
or discipline members for any
reason except non-payment of
dues, we will advise the Inter-
national Unions to give no more
no-strike clauses to employers."
The conference indicated that
the AFL will pursue a course of
resistance to the new labor law
parallel to that of the CIO,
Coal Vacation,
Hits Industry
PITTSBURGH, June 28-(AP)-
Coal related industry felt hunger
pangs today for the fuel supply
cut off by a 10-day paid vacation
of the nation's coal miners.
The country's entire coal pro-
duction virtually was snuffed out
as nearly 500,000 miners, includ-
ing 400,000 AFL-United Mine
Workers in the soft coal pits,
started holidays which closed the
mines.
Federal estimates indicated the
nation had only a 31-day coal sup-
ply as the holiday began.
Steelmakers took to "starvation
diets" to conserve meager supplies
of soft coal without which the in-
dustry cannot operate. These
drastic conservation measures
forced layoffs for thousands of
production workers.

Pickets Attend
Taft Wedding
In St. Joseph
Senator's Son, Bride
Were 'U' Students
With CIO pickets and state and
city police standing by, Virginia
Stone, daughter of a St. Joseph
industrialist, was married yester-
day to Lloyd B. Taft, third son of
Senator and Mrs. Robert Taft of
Ohio, in the First Congregational
Church at St. Joseph.
Both were students at the Uni-
versity. Taft just completed grad-
uate work in journalism during
the spring term and plans to work
on the Cincinnati Times-Star.
Taft Called 'Bad Boy'
The pickets carried signs read-
ing "Taft Obstructed Housing"
and "Senator Taft is a bad boy."
Gordon C ole wel, international
field representative for the Elec-
trical Workers, told the Associated
Press that union members would
"picket Senator Taft wherever we
find him" for sponsoring the
Taft.Hartley labor law in the
Senate.
Mass picketing had been threat-
ened earlier in the day but was
prevented by police action, the
Associated Press reported.
The groom's father and mother
were among the 300 guests at the
wedding. The newlyweds, who met
while students at the University,
planned to leave immediately for
Murray Bay, Quebec for a honey-
moon.
Sorority Sisters
Evelyn Mills, of Oak Park, Ill.,
Collegiate Sorosis sister of Miss
Stone, was maid of honor. The
bridesmaids, all members of Col-
legiate Sorosis, were Diane Rich-
ardson of Detroit, Lenore Nack of
Galena, Ill., Marilyn Jenkins of
Big Rapids, and Joyce Johnson of
Benton Harbor.
Among the ushers for the groom
were William Chick5ering and Ed-
ward Miller of Toledo, and William
Hibbard of Detroit All were Chi
Psi brothers of Taft here.
Eisenhower
Rate's Army
Below USSR
WASHINGTON, June 28-(JP)-
Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower told
Congress today that the army he
leads is a "poor second" to Rus-
sia's.
As a "professional soldier," the
Army Chief of Staff testified that
House slashes of $435,000,000' in
funds for the year starting Tues-
day would "take us well into the
danger zone" where the army
would lack strength to "pressure
for peace" or defend the nation.
Eisenhower told a closed-door'
Senate appropriations subcommit-
tee session that $375,000,000 of
this must be restored, and that
another $103,000,000 of new funds
should be added to cover increas-
ing costs of new fighting planes.
The House allowed $5,280,000,-
000 cash and $280,000,000 con-
tractual authority for the war de-
partment for the year beginning
July 1.

Pension Plan
DETROIT, June 28--(R)-Rich-
ard T. Leonard of the CIO United
Auto workers estimated today that
the Ford Motor Co. pension plan
would enable a $200-a-month pro-
duction worker to retire at half
pay after 30 years. Leonard, vice-
president of the UAW-CIO and
director of its Ford department,
revealed major details of the pen-
sion plan, the first of its kind in
a major automotive producing
plant.
The tentative pension agree-
ment, announced Friday, supple-
ments a seven cent hourly wage
boost granted 110,000 Ford pro-
duction workers.
Leonard estimated that 95 per
cent of these employes are eligible
to participate in the pension plan
from its outset. The remainder
would become eligible after an un-
specified number of months with
the, firm.
He said retirement age had not
been agreed upon but probably
would be set between 55 and 65.
"A Ford worker earning $200 a
month would contribute about
$1,800 in 30 years. and would re-
ceive $100 a month at retirement,",
Leonard asserted. "If the same
worker were to purchase an indiv-
idual annuity to pay him $55 a
month for life it would cost him
about $9,000,"

SMOKERS STOCK UP:
Campus Dealers Report Brisk
Cigarette Sales on Eve of Tax

By FRED SCHOTT
Campus cigarette dealers, for
the most part, were doing a brisk
business this week and dismissed
reports of students who claimed
they are going to quit smoking as
"just so much talk."
A survey of nine dealers yester-
day showed that only two had not
