Russia Voies
New Attitude
Of Coneliation
MOSCOW, March 12 - tom? -
A spirited counter-attack by Ern-
est Belin evoked surprisingly con-
ciliatrry concessions tonight from
V. M. Molotov in the Council of
Foreign Ministers just as news of
President Truman's declaratin of
support to Greece and Turkey
reached Moscow.
It was not believed that the
softening of the Russian foreign
minister's position was due to Mr.
Truman's statement of policy on
the two Mediterranean countries,
however, the return of the Russian
ambassadors from Washington
and London was taken as an indi-
cation that the Russians knew that
the Preident's move was in the
There was no official explana-
tion on the return of the ambas-
sadors. American correspondents
who have lived in Russia for sev-
eral years pointed out, however,
that since the foreign secretaries
of Bitain and the United States
already were in Moscow, it might
only be natu4al for the ambassa-
dors to those countries to be sum-
moned home.
The third session of the minis-
ters, at which Molotov agreed to
disclose the number of German
prisoners of war held in Russia
and to fix a date for the destruc-

tion of certain Russian-held Ger-
man ships, reflected no increase
in tension, despite the new United
States policy and the recall of the

Students Reject Royalty;
Coed Beauties Praised

Campus Leaders
IUphold SAC Ban
Royalty has no place on the
University campus, student lead-
ers agreed in interviews yester-
day, thus upholding the Student
Affairs Committee decision to bar
the selection of a king and queen
for the Michigras carnival.
"I don't see how a nineteenth
century institution can be demo-
cratically adapted to the Univer-
sity campus atmosphere," Haskell
Coplin, president of the Student
Legislature, declared.
Hard To Select
"Besides, it's a p r e t t y hard
proposition to elect one person to
fulfill what will at best be an ar-
bitrary standard of beauty," he
said. Coplin added that "once
royalty was rolling" the campus
would be besieged with requests
to sponsor com ercial products.
"It is beneath the dignity of
the University to sponsor royalty
contests," Ellen Hill, president of
the League Council, said. Miss
Hill explained that she felt such
events tend to degenerate into
fads and to split into factions
over a trivial matter.
No harm if Impartial
Richard Roeder, president of
the Union, said that he could see
'no harm in a campus king and
queen if the selection were based
on the impartial judgment of Uni-
versity officials without the inter-
ference of the student body."
"I wouldn't want to see royalty
on the campus," Jean Louise Hole,
president of the Women's Judici-
ary Council, asserted. "It is my
personal opinion that distasteful
politics and poor publicity dis-
crediting a place of higher learn-
irg would result," she said.
Too Much Attention
"If tradition and student opin-
ion could be reconciled in the best
interests of the University, such
contests might be worked out,"
Harry Jackson, Inter-Praternity
Council president, declared. He
added, however, that the issue
does not merit such attention.
Jeanne Clare, Assembly presi-
dent, said that from what she
knew of other campuses, royalty
contests unnecessarily split the
student body. Miss Clare added
that the issue is "much too insig-
nificant for the furor it has ar-
House Seeks
Threat Probe
WASHINGTON, March 12-(P)
-Aroused and alarmed, the House
Labor Committee asked FBI in-
vestigations today of a telephoned
threat against one of its members
and the killing of George P. Mc-
Near, Jr., who was a witness be-
fore the committee 10 days ago.
Chairman Hartley (Rep., N.J.)
laid both cases before the justice
department in a letter to Attorney
General Clark.
The threat was reported by Rep.
Kearns (Rep., Pa.). He told the
committee it came last night in
an anonymous telephone call.
"The caller," Kearns related,
"said I'd been seen dining with
McNear and I'd better change my
ideas about labor."

Old Adage Refuted
By Photographer
Contradicting the adage that
"four out of five girls are beauti-
ful and the fifth one goes to Mich-
igan," Phillipe Halsmai, Life pho-
tographer who is on campus this
week taking pictures of represen-
tative coeds, said yesterday that
"coeds seem to have more natural
charm than Paulette Goddard."
Halsman, who made his first
stop here on an assignment to do
a "straight glamor story in color
on pretty American college girls,"
was shooting pictures yesterday
in the Martha Cook Building of
Jacqueline Ward, '50, Camille
Ayo, '48, and Jeanne Thorn, '48,
attired in formal gowns.
Other coeds selected for the
pictures are Eve Galt, '50, Pat
Matheson, '48, Helen Stegman,
'48, and Barbara Rogers, '49.
Halsman said that the story is
not to be considered a "beauty
Some of the coeds were picked
"by a researcher who interviewed
several students and chose them."
"Others," Halsman said, "I picked,
trying to get girls who were
wholesome and pretty. Accord-
ing to Halsman, one of the coeds
was picked during a meal, "even
though women look least attrac-
tive when they are eating."
Halsman, who has photographed
numerous movie stars, commented
that "movie stars compare favor-
ably with coeds."
Labor Holds
Real Control,
Clark Asserts
Organized labor now has the
power to get whatever it might
seriously want, including a social-
ist government, Prof. John Mau-
rice Clark of the Columbia Uni-
versity e c o n o m i c s department
said in the third Cook Lecture
Labor holds its future in its
own hands, Prof. Clark said. It
"almost certainly" could vote a
socialist government if it decided
to, he declared.
"A shift in the balance of pow-
er has left labor in a position to
make excellent terms with govern-
ment and business," Prof. Clark
asserted. The position is so strong
that labor can afford to indulge
a preference for free enteprise
without endangering its own pow-
eis, he declared.
Prof. Clark said business will
have to continue learning to find
its own way through a changing
social landscape.
"The best that can be hoped for
is a conviction on all sides that
necessary changes will be made
in a spirit of reasonable consid-
eration for the genuine needs of
the interests affected." he said.-
"This feeling of underlying con-
fidence in the reasonable charac-
ter ofaother parties'dattitudes is
probably the best definition of
the kind of security' which our
system needs for the generation
that is ahead." t
Prof. Clark . will deliver the
fourth in the series entitled "Al-
ternative to Serfdom" at 4:15 p.m.

Senate Votes
Tenure Limit
y 'I'The AS*6ACd I'ress
WASHINGTON, March 1 2-The
Senate voted 59 to 23 tonight to
submit to the states a constitu-
tional amendment limiting the
maximum service of future presi-
dents to 10 years.
The decision came late in an
unusual night session after the
leadership once had decided to
delay action after a long argu-
ment about Franklin D. Roose-
Also more than half an hour
was devoted to discussion*- of
whether to take up the nomina-
tion of David E. Lilienthal to head

The final tally provided the nec-
essary twotlirds,;margin. A voice
vote in the al ernoon set Ithe lini-
tation terms.
In an unusual night session,
Senator Pepper (Dem., FlaJ pro-
tested that any limit on future
presidents would be a slur on the
Roosevelt record.
Pepper talked -with interrup-
tions--for nearly two hours' and
the leadership decided to drop the
presidential tenure hill for the

Iowa) told Pepper that Mr. Roose-
velt won a third term by promis-
ing that American boys would not
be sent to fight on foreign soil.

had added, "unless we are at-
tacked," but Hickenlooper disput-
ed this.
The decision to set the limit on

IRA Speaker
Says A giSation Nlimi
Have Pullie Support
To break the "vicious circle" of
prejudice and discrimination, we
must find and penetrate its weak-
est points, Prof. Theodore M. New-
comb, of the sociology depart-
ment, said yesterday.
Speaking before a meeting of
the Inter-Racial Association on
the subject "Prejudice vs. Dis-
crimination," Prof. Newcomb said
that legislation wi tout public
opinion behind it is unenforce-
able. Attitudes cannot be chang-
ed by legislation, he explained, on
the assumption that discrimina-
tion follows prejudice, for the re-
verse, that prejudice can follow
discrimination, is also true.
Attitudes of prejudice are learn-
ed, not instinctive, he declared,
as we generalize in accordance
with experience. Existing atti-
tudes are enforced by contact with
prejudiced people rather than
contacts with those against whom
the prejudice exists, he concluded.

Aid to Greece,
Turkey .Asked
By President
Says U.S. Must Not
Falter in Leadership
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, March 12 -
President Truman, in a fateful
speech to Congress, grimly caller,
on America today to halt the world
march of communism with
money, material and military
Proposing a new and historic
foreign policy, the President
specifically asked $400,000,000 to
aid Greece and Turkey, hard-
pressed Mediterranean bulwarks
against the totalitarian tide.
Moreover, he served notice he
would not hesitate to ask addi-
tional sums if necessary 'to help
free peoples to maintain their free
institutions and their national in-
tegrity against aggressive move-
ments that seek to impose upon
them totalitarian regimes."
Speaking to a joint session of
Senate and House, he said:
"If we falter in our leader-
ship, we may endanger the peace
of the world-and we shall sure-
ly endanger the welfare of our,
'own nation."
Before his taut-faced, tense and
anxious audience, he laid a re-
quest for:
1. Permission to spend $400,-
000,000 in Greece and Turkey for
the period ending June 30, 1948.
2. The right to send civilian
personnel and military men to the
two countries to assist in recon-
struction and to supervise use of
the aid.
3. Legislation giving the ad-
ministration scope in making the

12-(AP)-President Truman's ap-
peal to Congress today for Ameri-

considered "too hot" for comment
by top United Nations authorities
and was met here by what one

The attention of UN Secretariat

leaders was centered particularly
on one paragraph in which Mr.
Truman said :
"We have considered how the
United Nations might assist in
this and the United Nations and
its related organizations are not
in a position to extend help of
the kind that is required."
In Washington, some members
