IRA will hold a "Save the In-

day in the League.
The speakers will be George W.
Crocket, former hearings commis-
sion lawyer for FEPC and Earnest
Neal, graduate student in sociol-
ogy.
The rally is part of a drive spon-
sored by IRA to obtain funds for
the defense of Rosa Lee Ingram,
a Negro, and her tow sons, con-
victed by a jury in Georgia for
murdering a white man, and con-
demned to death.
Last night the Associated Press
reported that Superior Court will
hear the petition for a new trial
Thursday. If overruled, an appeal
to the higher courts is expected to
stay the execution. The date has
not been set.

on camps, and powerful police
were described recently to this re-
porter by two Hungarian students
now at the University.
Ernest Jonas, Grad., of Hun-
gary, said that the coup d'etat in
Czechoslovakia was not really ab-
rupt, as the Communists have had
influence there ever since the lib-
eration.
"The police were in thier hands,"
Jonas said, "and the Minister of
the Interior was a Communist. It
was the same in Hungary," he said,
adding that "it is the Communist
goal, for in European countries the
police are under control of the
Ministry of the Interior."
NG Opposition
The only difference, he added,
is that Hungary still has a coali-
tion government; but it is domi-
nated by the Communists, who
give the orders, and there is no
opposition.
There is no censorship of the
press, he said, but it is controlled
by the political parties, who must
get government permits to publish.
The radio is, as it has always been,
government-controlled, he added.
Jonas said that Russia still holds
some Hungarian prisoners of war,
who can be reached only through
the International Red Cross. Many
families have not heard from the
prisoners at all, he said, and when
they do write, there is nothing
about what they are doing, but
only a few words to say that they
are well.
Common Future
"There has always been dis-
agreement between Czechslovakia
and Hungary," Jones said. "Now
I am afraid they have the same
future. Maybe this will bring them
together."
John Gross, '51, also from Hun-
gary, spent two years in a German
army forced labor concentration
camp at Gunsterchen. Since his
liberation by the American army
i 1945, he has worked with Amer-
icanywelfare associations in Ger-
many and Austria. Here only
seven weeks, his studies are spon-
sored by Hillel Foundation.
Supports Truman Policy
In Hungary, Gross stated, there
is no freedom \"except among close
friends." He added that Hunga-
rian mail is censored.
Gross supported President Tru-
man's "get tough" policy. He spoke
of "Russian aggression," and said,
"The right thing to do is to show a
very strong hand." Only that, he
felt, would stop Russia.
Both of the Hungarian students
saw little hope for Finland in her
struggle to maintain indepen-
dence.
Next: Interviews with students
from Bulgaria and Czechoslovakia.

BEHIND THE EIGHT BALL:

Women Invade Men's Haven,
Learn Iool at West Lodge

By BOB DILWORTI
There's a little extra-curricular
education going on these evenings
in the recreation room of West
Lodge-the ladies are learning the
supposedly manly art of "shootin'
pool."
The women are flocking nightly
to the big, green tables in Willow
Village with the explorer's gleans
in their eyes, and men are getting
trampled while they do it.
Invasion of the world of 8-balls
and cue chalk is hailed by women
as their greatest gain since they
won the right to vote, and with
the passing of social stigma at-
tached to pool halls, they are in
the game to stay.
Game of Skill
"We love it," Barbara Weigel,
Willow Village social director, said.
"We have at last found a game of
skill that lets us compete with men
on even ground, and believe me,
we are going to meet them."
Male pride is takinga' ating
from these cue-wielding amazons,
so men decry the blending of sof t
ucrves and angle shots. It means
the end, they fear, of the comfort-

able smoke filled poolhall, their
long-standing haven from a wom-
an's world.
But feeble male opposition is
met by women with greater deter-
mination and longer practice pe-
riods.
"Why sit and knit when we can
play pool?" Ula Crull asked. "And
besides, since the Kinsey book was
published, I've taken up the game
as a last resort."
Female Fairness
But the girls are fair about it.
"We let the fellows win once in
a while," Betty Dietrich revealed,
"we don't dare beat them too
often, or they stop playing."
"She means it," Buzz Durant
said, 'the only thing the girls
haven't been able to learn over-
night is how to dangle a cigarette
out of the corner of the mouth
without getting smoke in one eye."
One strong voice can be heard
above the struggle. "There ought
to be a law against it," Chuck
Owens bellowed. "When women
start spitting in cuspidors, that
does it."
