TAIPE (')--The shooting over
the Quemoy Offshore islands ebbed
Tension eased as Red gunfire
slacked off.
The Nationalists announced that
297 Red shells hit the Quemoys
in sporadic barrages Monday, but
there was no word of any hits on
supply landing areas. The Com-
munists have ruled those areas
off-limite for their guns on even-
numbered days.
Igiore. Cets-Fire
A Nationalist spokesman indl-
cated, however, that Quemoy com-
manders were operating as though
the cease-fire did not exist.
"Comm~anders on the spot will
nwle their own military decisions
when to go into the beach" said
Adm. Liu Hoh-Tu, Chief National-
tst military spokesman. "The Reds'
every-other-day business can be
regarded only as Communist-vol-
unteered intllgence information,

Now Shelling Lightly
Liu said the Reds are now shell-
%Ing lightly just to create a nui-
anoe "because the Communists
have known since the second week
(of the artillery war) that their
chance to invade Quemoy was
The Reds, he said, miscalculated
on two counts.
"They did not expect the Ameri-
can stand to be so firm and they
did not expect our defenders could
wbtastand even the first seven days
of their heavy bombardment'"

Determnlnes Jurisdiction
On the other hand, Michigan's
article on the judiciary specifical-
ly recognizes circuit courts, pro-
bate cou-ts, and justice of the
peace courts. To some degree it
determines their jurisdiction. Re-
cently written judicial articles use
generalized language, leaving de-

diction of the courts to the Legis-
lature, This is exemplified in
Alaska's Constitution.
The features which earmark
New Jersey's 1947 constitutional

Seven students, including a first-string football player
and the captain of the basketball team, are being arraigned
this morning for their part in a campus-wide football gam-

a deadlocked conclave of the 51
Cardinals, gathered to choose a
successor to Pope Pius XII.
Disappointed in five other vigils
--through 11 unsuccessful ballots'
in the past three days-the crowd
broke into a joyous frenzy as JohnN
XXIII made his first appearance
on the balcony overlooking St.
Peter's square.
They roared "Viva I Papa!"-
long live the Pope !-over and over
as the new Pontiff slowly raised
his arms in benediction.
The new Pontiff, Italian like
his predecessors for 436 years, is
regarded by Catholics as the 262nd
vicar of Christ on earth and a
direct successor to St. Peter.
The selection of Cardinal Ron-
calli-19 days after Pius XII died
-bore out predictions that the
Pope would be chosen from among
the older Italian members of the
College of Cardinals.
Some might regard John XXIII
as a "transition Pope," not des-
tined to institute any notable
changes in Catholic church policy.
But John XXIII, like his cele-,
brated predecessor, has been a
diplomat of many years experi-
Though his policies may prove
conservative, he is expected to
follow the general direction laid;
down in the 19 years of Pius XI's
reign and to be a militant de-'

interests in world affairs.

long deadlock. It must be pre-

GAMBLING CARDS-These are some of the cards used in the
campus gambling activities. They list the teams that are playing
on a given weekend and give the downrated team a "spot" of so
many points. Thus the actual score of the game plus the spot
given to underdog Is calculated to make the final score even. This
makes the choice of teams pure chance on the part of the card
player. Bets of one dollar and up are taken with odds of up to 500
to one for the current choice of 20 teams.

Dulles Asks Soviet Decision
On One--Year Nuclear Ban
WASHINGTON (P-Secretary of State John Foster Dulles said
yesterday the Russians may be shying away from a nuclear testing ban
because they realize how far behind they are in developing atomic-
hydrogen weapons.
At the same time, at a news conference, he voiced a plea that the
Russians accept the British-American proposal for a one-year ban
beginning Friday. "The United States for its part stands by its offer

Republican candidate William F.
Knowland said, "I think these
social organizations should be al-
lowed to determine freely their
own choice of members. Recogni-
tion or non-recognition is strictly
a matter of university policy."
The discrimination issue was
brought to the attention of the
governorship candidates when 15
minority rights organizations and
action groups requested the state
attorney general to hand down a
discrimination opinion.
Attorney Reports
The Daily Californian reported
that Milton Stenn, attorney for
the Jewish organization B'nai
B'rith, told the paper the move
was designed to "put a stop" to
discrimination by fraternities and
similar groups "permanently."
He emphasized that the action
was being brought because the
B'nai B'rith, the National Asso-
ciation for the Advancement of
Colored People, the Congress of
Industrial Organizations and other
organizations objected to present
University of California policy.
The school recognizes and ap-
proves as university housing fra-

Police indicated that the stu-
dents were working separately and
that some students were not in-
volved as deeply as others.
If convicted of the misdemean-
or, the students could serve 90
days in jail and/or a $100 fine.
H. O. (Fritz) Crisler director of
athletics, said yesterday in a pre-
pared statement, "We are remov.-
ing from their respective athletic
squads .. . both athletes (Rio and
Lewis) involved in these charges
until their cases are decided."
But police said they are not
eliminating the possibility of pre-
fering charges of conspiracy to
violate state gaming laws,
Plans Incomplete
The conspiracy charge carries a
maximum penalty of five years in
prison. County Prosecutor Booker

By Exposure
University students asked to
comment on yesterday's arrest of
seven students in a gambling
crack-down indicated little con-
cern or surprise.
"The only real trouble with the
mess is that it violates a law,"
one said.
Inter-House Council President
Robert Ashton, '59, called the sale
of parley cards "a new angle on
selling magazines for extra cash."
Want to Make Money
Yvonne Stein, '59, compared the
practice to the sale of "nontrans-
ferable" student football tickets.
"People just want to make
money," she said.
The only aspect of the affair
which surprised him, Joel Paris,
'60, said, is that the students in-
volved, particularly the athletes,
"didn't think of the fact they
were endangering their reputa-
tions and careers."
He is sure gambling has been
"going on for years" on the cam-
pus, Paris continued.
Indicates Surprise
Charles Matthews, '61, indicat-
ed surprise that Rio and Lewis
were involved and said, "It's a
shame people as highly thought of
as they were had to be in on
something like this."
University Vice-President for
Student Affairs James A. Lewis,
said the University will conduct
its own investigation of the mat-
ter beginning tomorrow after the
"We won't pre-judge these
people;nothing has been proven
as yet," Lewis said.
