Harris Sees
Power Clash
On Agencies
Democratic Congressional leader
indicated possible trouble yester-
day for any move by the new Ken-
nedy administration to seek great-
er White House authority over the
troubled regulatory agencies.
Chairman Oren Harris (D-Ark)
of the House Commerce Com-
mittee made clear that Congress
will take a dim View of any effort
to tamper with the independent
status of these agencies.
Harris, whose committee handles.
legislation dealing with the major
agencies, is again offering a bill
aimed at improving ethical stand-
ards in the much criticized boards
and commissions which regulate
such activities as air and ground
transportation, broadcasting and
electric and gas utilities.
He made no effort to hide his
feeling that the cure to what trou-
bles the regulatory bodies does not
rest with augmenting White House
"I've made myself perfectly clear
many times," Harris told a re-
porter. "These agencies should not
in any way be subservient to the
White House or anyone else."
So far, President-elect John F.
Kennedy has given no public hint
what he will propose, if anything,
to revamp such agencies as the
Civil Aeronautics Board, the Fed-
eral Power Commission, the Fed-
eral Communications Commission
and the Interstate Commerce
But if Kennedy accepts all the
recommendations laid before him
last month by a special adviser he
likely will find himself in a bruis-
ing fight with Congress.
The adviser is James M. Landis,4
former Harvard Law School Dean
and a veteran of regulatory agency
Landis, subsequently named as
a Kennedy assistant to draw up
agency reform proposals, sub-
mitted just after Christmas a re-
port accusing some agencies,
among other things, of gross In-
efficiency and subservience to in-
dustry influence and lobbying.
Much the same thing has been
charged by the House Legislative
Oversight Subcommittee, which
went out of business this week
after three years of looking into
operations of the agencies. Harris
headed this subcommittee.
Where Landis is drawing con-
gressional fire is in his reorganiza-
tion proposal -- particularly his
recommendation for creation of a
White House overseer for the

Laos Capital
Rebel Threat
King Returns Home;
Pro-Reds Still Fight
VIENTIANE (P)-Pro-Commun-
ist forces were reported advancing
yesterday on Luang Prabang, but
most indications were that the
royal capital is not immediately
King Savang Vatthana appar-
ently held to this view by flying
back to Luang Prabang after sev-
eral earlier delays. He had spent
several days in Vientiane, 140
miles south of the royal city, for
the formal installation of Premier
Prince Boun Oum's new anti-Com-
munist government.
The king's departure indicated
rebel attacks in the Luang Pra-
bang area are isolated clashes
between guerrilla units of the pro-
Communist Pathet Lao and patrols
of the Royal Laotian army,
Column Advancing
A Pathet Lao column was re-
ported advancing on Luang Pra-
bang. French military sources in
Vientiane indicated the city was
being increasingly threatened.
Other Western military men placed
the column still 60 miles north of
the city.
(Radio Peiping, quoting a Lao-
tian rebel broadcast, claimed the
military post of Nam Pac, on the
Hou River southeast of Luang
Prabang, fell to the rebels Wed-
On the military front farther'
south, Information Minister Boua-
van Norasing claimed the rebel'
base of Vang Vieng, 65 miles north
of Vientiane, was captured by
government forces Thursday.
Report Airlift Halt
(The National Broadcasting Co.
said a top Soviet diplomat in
Bangkok, Thailand, reported Sov-
let planes are stopping their air-
lift to Laos. A Bangkok dispatch
from NBC correspondent James
Robinson quoted the diplomat as
saying that the civil war must be
ended by negotiations. The dis-
patch did not name the diplomat
and said nothing of any Com-
munist conditions for talks.)
Western sources still have no
confirmation of United States
charges that substantialdnumbers
of troops were parachuted to join
the rebels.
Indian Prime Minister Nehru
said last night the big powers have
allowed the Laos situation to go
too far.
"I don't think the danger of war
there has ended," he told a meet-
ing of his Congress party. "When
I talk of war I do not mean a
small war but a big war."

Hayes Sees Rival
Bills; Reuss Denies..
Prof. Samuel Hayes of the economics department last night
suggested that "a little rivalry" may be responsible for the numerous,
apparently uncoordinated studies and proposed bills on the Youth
Prof. Hayes' comment came after the announcement of yet,
another study, 'this one conducted by Prof. Millikan of Massachusetts'
Institute of Technology. President-elect John Kennedy requested the

By Indiana
Playing a fired up brand of
basketball, Michigan battled heav-
ily favored Indiana down to the
final buzzer yesterday afternoon,
only to see the Hoosiers win the
Big Ten opener, 81-70 at Yost
The Wolverines fell behind ear-
ly and never could catch up al-
though their valiant late drive
carried them to within seven
points of the powerful Hoosiers,
who carded their seventh win of
the year against three losses.
Michigan Is Just the reverse, 3-7.
Indiana started off as if it
were going to blow the game wide
open, scoring 18 points in the first
six minutes to take a 13 point
bulge as the fast break worked
to perfection. When Michigan did
get back on defense, the red hot
Hoosiers made a couple of passes,
then shot and scored.
Michigan couldn't compete with
this hot shooting, but when the
tempo of play slowed down and
Indiana cooled off, the losers came
creeping back, twice narrowing
the gap to eight points.
With Indiana holding a 38-26
lead near the end of the half,
the Wolverines had a chance to
cut the margin to 10, but a shot
went awry and Gordon Mickey
tipped in a last second basket to
give the winners a 14-point edge
at Intermission.
Michigan actually came back to
outscore Indiana in the second
half, 44-41, but the late spurt
started after the issue was already
settled, though many observers

dition, Rep. Henry Reuss (D-Wis),
Rep. James Roosevelt (D-Cal),
and Sen. Hubert Humphrey (D-

will propose legislation dealing
with a youth corps.
Prof. Hayes said that although
both Roosevelt and Reuss were
highly regarded by Kennedy,
neither had "the inside track"
and the bill favored by the new
administration may well come
from another office,
Rep. Reuss last, night denied in

not seen the Millikan report and

Reuss added that he would sub-

"It is possible that de Gaulle
will resign if he does not get an
overwhelming majority," he said,
but predicted that the vote to
give Algeria a chance to vote on
self-determination will gain ap-
proval in metropolitan France.
"De Gaulle will resign if he
does not receive support but he
will gain the support. It is not
clear, however, what he will do
with it," Jean R. Carduner, of
the French department and a na-
tive of France, said.
The Army that is moving to

that people vote and preferably

One way or the other, de Gaulle

Peace Corps
WASHINGTON (P)-President-
elect John F. Kennedy received a
report yesterday backing his pro-
posal for a peace corps to assist
underdeveloped nations but re-
buffing his suggestion that young
men serving in it be exempted
from the draft.
The report was submitted by
Max Millikan, director of the Cen-
ter for International Studies at
Massachusetts Institute of Tech-
The report from Millikan on
establishment of a peace corps of
talented young men and women
to assist in the development of
newly emerging nations was one
of a series Kennedy has been re-
ceiving on a variety of subjects.
Millikan said that in his re-
port, to be made public Tuesday,
he suggested such a corps be set
up initially on a test basis with
the enrollment of a few hundred
young men and women.
He told newsmen it would be
unwise and unnecessary to provide
that service in the corps would
excempt young men of draft age
from military duty.
Kennedy, in proposing the peace
corps in a San Francisco cam-
paign speech, said three years of
service in it could be an alter-
native to the peacetime draft.
Kennedy Picks
Wirtz To Fill
Labor Position
WASHINGTON (P) - President-
elect John F. Kennedy yesterday
named William Willard Wirtz of
Chicago, a law partner of Adlai
E. Stevenson, to be Under Secre-
tary of Labor.
Kennedy also selected a busi-
nessman, three union officials and
an attorney for other high posts
in the labor department,..
They are:
James J. Reynolds of Schenec-
tady, N. Y., and Jerry R. Holle-
man of Austin, Tex., to be assis-
tant secretaries.
Charles Donahue of Washington
to be solicitor.
Mrs. Esther Peterson of Wash-
ington to be assistant to the sec-
retary and director of the Women's
George Leon-Paul Weaver of
Washington to be special assis-
tant, pending appointment later
as Assistant Secretary for Inter-
national Affairs.
Announcing the selections, the
president-elect's staff said they
were made after consultation with

Foriula Suggests
International Action
In Southeast Asia
ern powers plan to propose to
Russia early next week a formula
for international action to halt the
civil war in Laos and the danger
of an expanding cold war battle-
ground in southeast Asia.
Britain will play the leading role
in making the approach to the
Moscow government. The heart of
the formula is to revive an inter-
national control commission for
Laos on the understanding that it
would deal with, though niot.
necessarily recognize formally, the
present pro-American government
of Premier Boun Oum.
The United States, in a brief
"white paper" on the Laotian
crisis, charged yesterday that the
Soviet Union has been expanding
its airlift to the leftist and pro-
Communist rebels fighting the
Boun Oum government. But the
statement also further opened the
door to maneuvers aimed at a.
peaceful solution.
The document, released by the
State Department, said there are
three ways the United States can
contribute to a solution of the
Laotian problem.
One way, it said, is "by joining
with other free nations to support
and maintain the independence of
Laos through whatever measures
seem most promising."
The other two points of current
United States policy, the state-
ment said, are to tell the world
"the true nature of Communist
intentions and actions in Laos,"
and to show that the United
States itself does not seek to make.
Laos a Western military ally.
Moscow radio, however, said last
night any international peace
commission sent to Laos could
negotiate only with the ousted
government of Prince Souvannah
Highly placed diplomatic offici-
als said the reality behind this
United States position is this:
The United States is now def-
nitely in favor of reconstituting
the three - nation international
control commission which was first
created by the 1954 Geneva con-
ference and disbanded, as no
longer necessary, two years ago.

Carl White fired home Bill Kelly's centering pass snapping a
2-2 deadlock just 25 seconds ,after Michigan Tech had gained it,
spuring the Wolverines on to a 5-2 victory over the Huskies before
a standing room only crowd at the Coliseum last night.
The victory coupled with Friday's 2-1 conquest gave the Wolver-
ines a sweep of the series and enabled them to retain undisputed

Early Goal
Michigan's John Palenstein opened the scoring before the huge
crowd had hardly settled into its seats with a 50 foot screened shot
from the right point, but Tech surged back to tie the count on Pat
Casey's goal.
Al Hinnegan gave Michigan the lead at the end of the period,
but the lead was short lived as Tech's Al Raymond knotted the
score just 4:04 into the second period.
Following White's marker, Red Berenson, in the second period,
and Larry Babcock, in the third, added insurance goals, but the
outcome of the game was never in doubt. The rugged Michigan
defense, spearheaded by the outstanding play of John Palenstein
and the clutch goal tending of sophomore Dave Butts, held the
swift Huskies pretty much at bay.
