House Group
Pares Relief
Bill to Europe
Committee Adds
China Aid to Plan
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 25 -
r An 18 per cent slash in President
Truman's request for $597,000,000
European emergency aid was voted
today by the House Foreign Af-
fairs Committee-and then it
threw in $60,000,000 for China.
This broadside revision of the
administration's carefully planned
winter relief program is included
in a bill the committee is writing
to lay before the House. On the
Senate side, the Foreign Relations
Committee has unanimously ap-
proved the $597,000,000 figure.
Specifically the House commit-
tee bill proposes to set up $489,-
000,000 for France, Italy and Aus-
tria this winter, whereas Mr. Tru-
man asked the full $597,000,000
for these three countries to pre-
vent "chaos."
Include China
The administration did -not in-
clude China in the emergency
proposal to the special session, but
Sesretary of State Marshall has
used the $60,000,000 figure in dis-
cussion of Chinese needs for this
fiscal year.
Even with China included in
the House bill, its revised total
would be $549,000,000-or a net
overall cut of $48,000,000.
Rep. Vorys (Rep., Ohio) said
that the reduction in projected
help for the three European coun-
tries was based on information
the committee obtained of the
amount of goods that will be
available for them.
"Final" Figure
Asked if the $549,000,000 told
is a "final" figure, Vorys said no,
that it represents committee ac-
tion "to date" on the bill.
A committee member told a re-
porter the vote was 10 to 9 on a
motion of Rep. Chiperfield (Rep.,'
Ill.) to cut the $108,000,000 from
the $594,000,000 the administra-
tion recommended as a "minimum
for the three European countries.
The closeness of the ballot'
pointed to a rough scrap over the
total when the bill reached the
House floor for a vote.
The committee hopes to com-
plete the. bill by the end of the
week, then meet next Monday to
approve it in final form for in-
troduction by Chairman Eaton
(Rep., N.J.). That would make it
possible to start House considera-
tion later next week.
Discuss Legislation
Speaker Martin called the
House Republican Steering Com-
nittee, to meet next Tuesday to
discuss the legislation and possi-
bly to take a unified position on
it. The Steering Committee shapes
party policy in the House.
In the Senate, where the Euro-
pean stop-gap aid authorization
measure already has reached the
floor, the second day of debate
pushed it toward a vote, possibly
tomorrow. Senators voted in an
amendment which directs that re-
lief buying be done in a manner
having the least effect on domes-
tic prices.
Riots Flare Up
Again in Italy

Terror Marked by
Slayings, Plundering
ROME, Nov. 25-(YP)--Political
terror, dormant over the weekend,
burst out again in southern Italy
today with two slayings, rioting
and the sacking of anti-Commu-
nist Party offices.
While last week's strife cen-
tered in Apulia in the heel of the
Italian boot, the new outbreaks
were in Calabria, in the toe.
A minor outburst also occurred
in Rome tonight when a bomb was
thrown from a passing automo-
bile against a building in which
the Communist newspaper Unita
is printed. There were no casual-
ties and the only damage was a
few broken windows.
One newspaper said "disorders
spread throughout Calabria," and
another headline reported "deaths,
devastation, armored cars as the

NegroPolicy
Organization Refuses
IRA's Present Plea
Members of the Ann Arbor Bar-
bers' Association will not serve
Negroes, Joe Kneiper, president,
declared yesterday.
Replying to IRA's letter request-
ing the Barber's Association to
"eradicate disriminatory prac-
tices" against Negroes, Kneiper
:tated that "it would continue
the present policy" and would not
meet with campus representatives
to work out a positive solution to
the problem.
Resistance Promised
He also warned that if legal ac-
tion by IRA forces the city's bar-
ber shops to obey the Diggs Act
and serve Negroes, "they would
not be satisfied with the haircuts
they received."
In Kneiper's opinion, discrim-
inating barber shops will not be
influenced to change their stand
by IRA's threat "to take con-
certed action" before resorting to
a court test, if the Barbers' Asso-
ciation does not reach a "satis-
factory" decision by Dec. 1.
'Can't Afford It',
Shops in the vicinity of the
campus against which he believes
Operation Haircut is specifically
directed, could not "afford" to cut
Negroes' hair because their "cus-
tomers wouldn't like it" and would
go elsewhere for their haircuts,
Kneiper said.
IRA's campaign to persuade
Ann Arbor's barber shops to serve
Negroes is supported by "few stu-
dents and opposed by most towns-
people," he explained.
Ship Aground,
Fear 48 Loast
Survivors Sighted by
Coast Guard Plane
KETSHIKAN, Alaska, Nov. 25
- (P) - Two small Coast Guard
searching parties which reached
tiny Hippa Island near nightfall
messaged in mid-evening they had
been unable to find any survivors
from the wrecked army transport
Clarksdale Victory, although ear-
lier today a coast guard plane had
reported sighting three survivors
on the shore.
The bow section of the shat-
tered 10,850-ton ship was nosed
against the rocky beach of little
known Hippa Island, battered by
waves reported breaking 50 feet
high against it.
The after section, apparently
broken off by the tremendous
force of the sea, was submerged.
A Coast Guard plane reported
sighting only three survivors on
the shore, but officers at head-
quarters here drew hope for other
survivors from the sighting of a
lifeboat and life raft on the rocks.
They said it was unlikely that
only three men could have suc-
ceeded in getting a cumbersome
life boat safely ashore. , Others,
they said, might have taken shel-]
ter in adjacent woods.I

was designed to take care of stu-
dents first in distributing the
available tickets, while at the
same time minimizing the possi-
bility of scalping.
Married students only will be
permitted two tickets. It will not
be necessary for husband and wife
to present themselves at the Ath-
leti Building, but they will both
be required to pick up their tickets
in California.
It is suggested that graduate
students comply with the regula-
tions concerning the rest of the
student body, since they then will
be assured of one ticket. They
may not register for tickets under
both student and alumni classifi-
cations.
Weir warned that there is no
need for anyone to get down to
the ticket office early, since seat
allocations will be made after De-
cember 1, and the time of the pur-
chase will not assure choice seats.
Weir also announced that his
office has already received around
1,000 alumni applications since
Monday morning.

Soviet-American' Plan Goes to Full
Assembly for Approval Tomorrow
By The Associated Press
LAKE SUCCESS, Nov. 25-The "Soviet-American" plan to par-
tition Palestine into Jewish and Arab countries by next Oct. 1 was ap-
proved today by a vote of 25 to 13 in the 57-member Palestine cowi-
mittee of the United Nations Assembly.
This easily gave enough margin to carry the plan through the
committee. However, on this same ballot ratio, it was one short of
the two-thirds majority of those present and voting which will be
required for adoption in the full Aysembly.
The Assembly meets tomorrow at 11 a.m. (EST) to take up the
committee-approved plan. Afternoon and night sessions also were

Writers vital
To Revival of
Union Opera
A special meeting of all stu-
dents interested in helping to re-
write and complete the book and
lyrics needed to make the staging
of a Union Opera next fall pos-
sible is being planned for the near
future, the Union Opera Com-
mittee announced yesterday.
"Several of the books submit-
ted to the Committee show great
promise," Dave Upton, Committee
chairman reported. "If we can
just get some interested writers to
help work them into shape, we'll
be able to pick out the best and
then be able to go ahead with pro-
duction plans," he said.
Upton explained that the Com-
mittee has decided to concentrate
all energies on tentatively pre-
senting a full scale Union Opera
between Thanksgiving'and Christ-
mas next fall instead of rushing
a possibly incomplete show before
the footlights this spring.
"We're going to do everything
we can to make 'the new Union
Opera rival the great successes of
old and well worthy of carrying on
the Opera's long and colorful tra-
dition," he said.

'U' Students Urged
To Give Generously
The University Famine Com-
mittee will continue the clothing
drive today under the chairman-
ship of Seymour Goldstein.
"The purpose of this drive is to
make it possible for students in
Europe to attend school, which is
essential for building and main-
taining world peace," Goldstein
stated.
Students going home for
Thanksgiving are asked to bring
back any clothing they can spare
and turn it in to their house col-
lecting station or leave it at the
Lane Hall desk. Clothing of all
sorts is needed as well as blankets
and other bedding, according to
Goldstein.
"The future of the child will
determine the future of the
world," Goldstein said. "It is our
moral duty to do all we can to
help the 3,000 shattered schools
in Europe."
Clothing, shoes and bedding
are especially needed in Europe
today, he added, urging students
to give all they can possibly spare.I

scheduled for the Assembly, all in
Flushing Meadow Park, New York.
The United States and Russia
were the only members of the Big
Five to vote for partition. Britain,
which has not taken part in the
long discussions except to say she
would notccarry out a major role
in enforcing partition, abstained
along with France and China.
Seventeen Abstentions
There were seventeen.absten-
tions in all. The Philippines and
Paraguay were absent on the final
rollcall in committee.
Spokesmen for the Arab higher
committee, representing Arabs of
Palestine, and for the six Arab
countries in the UN promptly an-
nounced they considered the com-
mittee decision "null and void"
and declared they are "prepared
for the worst."
Jamal Hussein, vice chairman
of the Arab higher committee,
who sat in the UN lounge through-
out the committee session in the
adjacent room, told newsmen af-
terward: "We know that tonight
the United States and the Jewish
agency will be exerting great ef-
fort to get the two-thirds ma-
jority."
No Comment
The Jewish agency for Palestine,'
spokesman for the Jews of the
Holy Land, said it would have no
comment. "Why should we talk
now," one agency representative
said.
The partition plan broadly is
this:
The British would withdraw
from Palestine by next Aug. 1.
The two new . countries-Arab
and Jewish - would be established
by Oct. 1.
Jerusalem would be an inter-
national city, under the eye of the
UN Trusteeship Council.
International City .
A five-nation UN commission
would be entrusted with adminis-
tering the Holy Land during the
transition period.
The Security Council would take
responsibility for making partition
effective and of seeing that no
threats to peace or acts of aggres-
sion are committed in the Pales-
tine area. The Arabs have said
they will not cooperate in parti-
tion.
Pre-Election

Ag reement on
Austria Must
Wait--Molotov
Russia Seeks Treaty
To Disarm Germany
LONDON, Nov. 25-(IP)-An ap-
peal by the Western Powers for at
least one quick Big Four agree-
ment to "assure the people of the
world" failed tonight to move
Soviet Foreign Minister V. M.
Molotov into consenting to imme-
diate consideration of an Austrian
treaty.
The opening of the Conference
of Foreign Ministers in ancient,
sedate Lancaster House, as de-
scribed to correspondents by brief-
ing officers, indicated that Molo-
tov had changed his poition lit-
tle, if any, from the meeting last
April in Moscow.
The Foreign Ministers of the
Un.ited States, Britain, France and
Russia agreed on a six point
agenda, but split in the usual 3
o 1 fashion over whether Austria
or Germany should get top con-
s;ideration,
Disarmament Treaty
Molotov did agree to take up the
U.S.-proposed four-power 40-year
disarmament treaty against Ger-
many-provided it was coupled
with discussion of what Molotov
said was the "failure" of the
Western Povrs to carry out pres-
ent demilitorization policies for
the Reich.
This indicated Molotov would
again raise the repeatedly denied
Soviet charges made in Moscow
and in the Berlin Allied Control
Council by Marshal Sokolowsky
A ihc TThi1rd States and Brit-
am were failing to disarm Ger-
many.
The East and West came to
grips over which order should be
given the items in the agenda for
discussion.
Britain, France and the United
States said agreement was near on
an Austrian treaty and added that
if a quick final settlement could
be reached it would reassure an
"anxious world."
U.S. Secretary of State Marshall
said" it is very important we
agree on something quickly to as-
sure the people of the world."
Movies Cut 10
From Payroll
NEW YORK, Nov. 25-(A')-The
high command of the nation's
movie industry decided to drop
from its payrolls the 10 Hollywood
figures cited for contempt of Con-
gress and at the same time an-
nounced no known Communists
would be hired in the future.
The action was announced by
Eric Johnston, President of the
Motion Picture Association of
America, after a two-day closed
session attended by 50 of film-
dom's top executives.
None of the 10 men, Johnston's
statement said, would be rehired
until "he is acquitted or has
purged himself of contempt and
declared under oath that he is not
a Communist."

Study Urgred

r

Students planning to run for
election to the Student Legisla-
ture have been urged by Harvey
Weisberg, president, to gain some
early experience with the body
and its committees.
There is opportunity, he said,
for actual work with the commit-
tees, as well as over-all orienta-
tion.
Weisberg added that such early
experience may be used by candi-
dates in their pre-election state-
ments of qualifications.
Those interested may contact
either Weisberg or the legisla-
ture's publicity chairman, Bar-
