By The Associated Press
BRYCE CANYON, Utah, Oct. 24
-A United Airlines DC-6 trans-
port plane carrying 52 persons.
including two infants, smashed
against a sloping hillside here to-
day, scattering the shattered bod-
ies and wreckage over a wide area.
The four-engined craft, trail-
ing smoke and flames for at least
10 miles before it crashed, virtual-
ly disintegrated. A strip of sage-
brush over 100 yards long and 50
yards wide was burned.
Scorched and Twisted
The four engines, scorched and
twisted, were thrown 200 to 300
feet beyond the burned area.
The largest piece of the plane
was a section of the tail, only 15
or 20 feet long. It was near the
forward portion of the burned
Bodies Unrecognizable
All the bodies, including 47 pas-
sengers and five crew members,
were mangled and burned. Most
were unrecognizable.
Only three other commercial
aviation crashes have taken a
larger death toll. Fifty-three per-
sons died in the wreckage of an
airliner near Port Deposit, Md.,
last May 30. The some number
perished in each of two other
crashes, both at Bogota; Colom-
bia, the first July 24, 1938, and the'
second last February 15.
One Scheduled Stop
The transport was en route
from Los Angeles to New York
with only one scheduled stop-at
Shortly before the crash the
pilot reported by radio that fire
had broken out in the plane's bag-
gage compartment. He said he
was turning back and would land
at the emergency landing field
here, adjacent to Bryce Canyon
National Park in southern Utah,
about 275 miles south of Salt Lake
The craft barely cleared the
precipitous wall of a branch of
Bryce Canyon. Then it plowed
into the sloping, sage-covered
hillside, apparently exploded and

Taft Confirms

COLUMBUS, O., Oct. 24-()-_
U. S. Senator Robert A. Taft today

that he was a candidate for the
Republican Presidential nomina-

lawyer, son of the late President

Business in the Senate, where he
has represented Ohio for nine
years, will demand most of his at-
tention, Taft explained.
Both Taft and Fred H. Johnson,
state Republican chairman, said
there had been no discussion of
a running "mate for him in the
Ohio primary election next May."
Taft defined possible issues of
the 1948 election campaign as:
1-"The general issue between
people who want more federal
power and action and the people
who want less."
2-Foreign questions, such as
the Marshall Plan for European
relief, and 3-high prices.

Fires Force
Thousands to
Flee Homes
17 Lives Los;
Damage Mounis
By The Associated Press
Like refugees of war, thousands
of persons today fled Bar Harbor.
Me. to escape another night of
terror of raiding forest fires which
took 17 lives in the nation and
burned a loss upwards of $26,000,-
000 across New England.
Meanwhile, minor rains in
Michigan's western Upper Penin-
sula today did little to relieve the
dry conditions on which 84 forest
fires are feeding, the Conserva-
tion Department reported.
Rains Predicted
Fire-fighting crews were greatly
encouraged this morning when
clouds covered most of the pen-
insula and weather forecasters
predicted rains would sweep across
many of the burning areas.

the fires have been set" and

Outbreaks Elsewhere
Outbreaks of woodland blazes
flared elsewhere in the Nation,
in New York and New Jersey and
ranged up north of Maine into
the Canadian province of New
Brunswick. Closing of woods was
ordered in parts of Pennsylvania
and West Virginia.
Worn firefighters in the New

their fifth day counting chiefly
on a drop in 20-mile an hour
winds as their best aid. Rain still
remained only a hope in the six-

days. The Weather Bureau said
only a "sprinkle" was due Satur-

Denham Says
Law Is Fair
CHICAGO, Oct. 24-(/P)-Rob-
ert N. Denham, general counsel of
the National Labor Relations
board, told a union gathering here
today that there are checks and
balances in the Taft-Hartley Act
"designed to keep it from. being a
union-busting instrument or a
slave labor law."
Denham and the NLRB are re-
sponsible for administering the
act, which some union leaders
have labelled a "slave statute" for
In a speech delivered to a meet-
ing of the Confederated Unions of
America, a group of organizations
not affiliated with either the CIO
or AFL, Denham said:
"It is no secret that many of the
leaders of organized labor in the
United States have violently criti-
cized the act. They have called it
vicious and they have sworn to
leave no stone unturned to effect
its repeal. I can account for these
people only with the well known
saying that 'there is none so blind
as he who will not see'."
Denham said the Wagner Act of
1935 was designed to work in one
direction only, but that the Taft-
Hartley Act which amends it is
intended "to operated in two di-,

Relief for Europe
By The Associated Prss
WASHINGTON, Oct. 24-Presi-
dent Truman called tonight for
"prompt and courageous action"
to stop inflation at home and to
protect France and Italy against
"totalitarian pressures."
He stopped short, however, of
saying at this time what measures
other than voluntary he will ask
of Congress in the special session
he has callled to meet November
Follows Proclamation
Mr. Truman broadcast to the
Nation one day after issuing the
proclamation which will bring the
lawmakers back to Washington
a month and a half ahead of their
regular session in January.
"When it meets," he said f
Congress, "I shall recommend a
program for dealing with infla-
tion, high prices, and the high
cost of living. Adequate measures
-enacted in time-are necessary
to correct the present situation."
United States Policy
Turning to foreign relief needs,
he declared the United States pol-
icy has been and is "to assist
free men and free nations to re-.
cover from the devastation of war,
to stand on their own feet, to help
one another, and to contribute
their full share to a stable and
lasting peace."
"Timely and forthright action,"
he said, is needed to relieve "hun-
ger and cold abroad."
Emergency Needs
Mr. Truman gave this picture
of emergency needs as he sees
France-$357,000,000 to carry
her through until next March 31.
Italy - $142,000,000 to last
through December 31 and an ad-
ditional $143,000,000 to run
through March 31.
Occupied areas in Germany, Ja-
pan and Korea-"serious -difficul-
ties" require additional funds in
an amount he did not specify.
The President summed up:
"The two problems I have been
discussing with you tonight-high
prices at home and hunger and
cold abroad-present a challenge
to the American people.
Gifts, Library
Plan Approved
By U' Regents
Gifts amounting to $35,947 were
accepted and approval was given
,o the establishment of the Clem-
ants Library Associates and to two
faculty appointments by the Board
of Regents in its meeting yester-
Largest of the gifts was a com-
bined grant of $8,500 from Parke
Davis & Co., Eli Lilly & Co.,
Abbot Laboratories and the Up-
john Co. to permit completion of
research on penicillin and related
nompounds. Prof. Werner E. Bach-
nann, of the chemistry depart-
ment, is in charge of the project.
Clements Library
The Board approved the estab-
lishment of the Clements Library
Associates for the purpose of in-

:reasing the collections and re-
sources of the Library and of
broadening its scope and services.
Membership will be extended to
interested persons making such
an annual contribution as shall be
determined by the executive com-
Both appointments approved at
the meeting were to the Law
School faculty. Prof. Max Rhein-
stein, of the University of Chicago
law school, will be a visiting pro-
fessor here next semester, and
William W. Bishop, Jr., son of
William W. Bishop, librarian
emeritus of the University, has
been - appointed professor of law
beginning with the fall semester

upon an amazed campus yester-
day afternoon.
Attired in a long mangy black
silk cape and a battered, moth-
eaten stove-pipe hat, "Mandrake'
was first seen making his way
jauntily along the diag and am-
iably greeting all passers-by, par-
ticularly pretty ones, with a mag-
nanimous "how do you do," o
sweeping doff of his hat and a
wave of his magic-cigar wand.
"Mandrake," who by that time
had stationed himself before the
library to continue his greetings.
explained that he was "merely
having some fun" watching aston-
ished students stare at him.
"I'm really sane, most of the
time," he protested vigorously.
"Mandrake," who later revealed
himself as Joe Dean, '50, of Mich-
igan House disclaimed any con-
nection with initiation proceed-
ings. He said he is also renowned
in the West Quad for his stilt-
walking prowess.
