that over $500,000 in union funds
had been squandered.
The board, after a seven-hour

President R. J. Thomas' motion tc

Reuther had not taken his com-
plaints to other union off icial

the union newspaper. Reuther
made no immediate comment on
the vote.
The results of the vote were not
unexpected, as Reuther's political
opponents-Thomas and secre-
tary-treasurer George F. Addes-
control a majority of the 22-man
board. One member, George Burt

Group Drives
For Petitions
100,000 Signatures
Are Needed by Oct. 2
An all-out drive for petitions
has been launched by the local
Committee for Repeal of the Cal-
lahan Act, as a wind-up to its
two-month campaign.
A goal of 100,000 signatures over
the state must be reached by the
Oct. 2 deadline if the committee is
to fill petitions to submit the
question to the voters at the next
election, according to Prof. John
L.Brumm of the journalism de-
partment and Prof. Wilfred Kap-
lan, of the mathematics depart-,
ment, co-chairmen.
Literature will be given to vol-
unteers, who will distribute it
throughout the city, at 7 p.m. to'
morrow at the Union. At 7 p.m.,
Monday and Tuesday, campaigns
for circulation of petitions will be
organized at the Union.
The following statement has

been issued by a group of cam-
pAign sponsors:;
"The Callahan Act was ostensi-
bly passed to prevent sabotage
and overthrow of our government
by agents of foreign powers. In-
stead of doing that, because of its
looseness of language, it has
pointed the finger of suspicion
on everyone acting on behalf of
an international cause, no matter
how fine its purpose-for exam-
ple, the Red Cross or church
groups. A whim of the attorney
general can subject an individual
or group to the scorn of society
without opportunity for adequate
defense. The legislature gave the
law immediate effect, a procedure
justified only by an emergency,
thereby making the possibility of
a referendum questionable. But in
the two months since passage of
the law no use of it has been
made and the present attorney
general has termed it unencorce-
able. We urge all citizens to sign
the petitions and thereby allow
the law to be voted on in true


Fred Waring Concerts

Glee Club Will Sponsor Pennsylvanians'
Return Appearance Here Oct. 31, Nov. 1
Fred Waring and his Pennsylvanians, acclaimed by many critics
as the greatest musical organization of its type the country has ever
known, will appear in two special evening concerts here in Hill Audi-
torium on October 31 and November 1.
Waring's return to this campus will mark something of a mile-
stone in his musical career, for it was exactly 25 year ago that he in-
troduced his original Pennsylvania aggregation here at the J-Hop
of 1922 held at the Michigan Union-his first major engagement.

N. Petkov Is
Executed as
Appeals Fail
U.S. Labels Act
'Gross Injustice'
By The Associated Press
SOFIA, Bulgaria, Sept. 23 -
Nikola Petkov, the peasant leader
who accused the Communists of
killing and beating their political
foes in their march to power in
Bulgaria, died today on the gal-
lows in Sofia's central prison, an
official announcement said.
The announcement said he died
15 minutes after midnight.
The United States had appealed
in vain for a delay in the execu-
tion of the 54-year-old leader of
the now dissolved opposition
Agrarian Party, who was sen-
tenced to death on Aug. 16 after
his conviction on charges of plot-
ting to overthrow the Communist-
controlled government.
'Jeopardize Democracy'
An American note had declared
that execution of Petkov, chief
voice of anti-Communist opposi-
tion in post-war Bulgaria, would
"jeopardize the establishment of
democratic government" in the
country. The United States had
denounced the conviction as a
"gross miscarriage of justice" and
both the United States and Brit-
ain had asked the Soviet Union to
join in a big power review of his
The Russians rejected the ap-
peal, saying they had confidence
in the Bulgarian courts. A series
of British and American protests
declaring the conviction violated
pledgeshguaranteeing fundamen-
tal rights to all citizens was re-
jected by the government headed
by Commi.nist Premier George
In London government inform-
ants said Britain, which made 11
unsuccessful attempts to save Pet-
kov's life, would lodge a sharp pro-
test with the Bulgarian govern-
ment against the execution.
.In Washington the State De-
partment issued a formal state-
ment denouncing the execution.
Russia refused to join in Brit-
ish-American efforts on Petkov's
behalf on the grounds it would
constitute "interference" in Bul-
garia's internal affairs.
Denied Charges
Petkov, who steadfastly denied
the charges that he plotted to
overthrow the government by a
coup d'etat involving armed force,,
had been arrested last June 6.
He had held little hope that he
would escape the death penalty.
In his prison cell he described hisi
case as a prolongation of "what
has already happened in Hun-
gary," where the Communists
squelched opposition after alleg-
ing existence of a plot to over-
throw the government.

The Student Legislature, open-

governing body, plans a complete
revision of its committee system
this Fall, according to Harvey
Weisberg, Legislature president.
The revision will eventually
provide for a channelization of all
student events through the Legis-

Other tentative plans for the
group include ratification of an
ordinance prohibiting bicycles
from campus which was passed
as an emergency measure yb the
Summer Student Legislature. En-
forcement will fall under the jur-
isdiction of the Men's Judiciary
Council, Weisberg said.

Exactly 130 years ago, on Sept.

Student I-D
Cards Will Be
Sent byMail
A new system of delivering stu-
dent identification cards by mail
has been worked out to avoid the
long lines which slowed distribu-

In order to speed identification
card distribution University offi-
cials have asked students to de-
posit a stamped, self-addressed
envelope in a special box to be set
up at the Office of Student Af-
fairs in Rm. 2, University Hall.
Envelopes must be left in the Of-
fice of Student Affairs prior to
Oct. 4 to insure mail delivery of1
identification cards.
Any student unable to leave a
stamped, self-addressed envelope
in the Student Affairs office may
pick up his identification card at
a later date from a booth which
will be placed in the corridor of
University Hall. However authori-
ties have emphasized that dis-
tribution will be speeded consid-

Italian Treaty
Also Approved
Majority Thwarts
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK, Sept. 23-Heavy
United Nations majorities steam-
rollered Russian opposition today
and approved American proposals
to deal with the Greek and Ko-
rean crises and consider creation
of a new veto-free security agency.
Over the peristent objection
of Soviet Deputy Foreign Min-
ister Andrei Vishinsky, the 55-
nation assembly also approved
an American-supported Argen-
tine proposal that it debate and
suggest revision of the new
Italian peace treaty. This issue
brought a split among the
Western powers as well as be-
tween them and Russia.
The six votes of the Slav bloc
held solid in the minority through-
out on all East-West issues.
Russia and the United States
showed upon the same side of the
voting on only one issue-creation
of a special 55-nation committee
on Palestine-and on this the Arab
bloc was an adamant minority in
The air of contest and bitter
controversy which marked the As-
sembly's week-long general de-
bate prevailed throughout the vot-
ing on 61-item agenda. Finally
this 'was'adpted without change
from the form in which it had
been submitted to the Assembly by
the 14-nation steering committee
As the debate closed and dis-
cussion of the agenda opened,
Secretary General Trygve Li
made an impassioned plea for
harmony and compromise
among the battling great
powers. He was applauded
unanimously but otherwise got
no immediate observable result.
Vishinsky ignored the appeal.
Immediately afterward he began
a point-by-point attack on Ameri-
can policies. This campaign is
expected to continue through the
rest of the session as specific is-
sues come up first in committees
and then again in the assembly it-
self. Committee work begins to-
morrow at Lake Success.
