The news agency, Tass, re-
leased a 13-page statement
which it said reflected "the at-

Tass listed the same 11 sphere

After citing the Russian posi

"From all that has been sail
above it is clear who bears th
responsibility for the present stat"

"Everyone knows that under
the Roosevelt government, the
most difficult international
problems were settled" by the
United States, Russia and Bri-

It added that now the United
States not only violates the de-
cisions made at the Yalta and
Tehran Conferences, but also vio-
lates "decisions of the Potsdan

the participation of Truman and
which he signed."
The statement was the latest in
a series of Soviet-American ex-

Taft Condemns
Policy Faults
Of President
N.Y., May 22-(AP)-Sen. Robert
A. Taft said tonight that "as we
approach an election" it is the
right and duty of Republicans "to
point out the fallacies" of the
Truman foreign policy.
In a speech at Bard College, he
said there has "only been a bi-
partisan policy in a few limited
fields. In most matters the Presi-

to agree to it.
"We have usually done so in or-

Maddy Wins
Network Fight
For Interloch en
Mutual Announces
Defiance of Petrillo
Dr. Joseph E. Maddy, professor
in the School of Music, won a
foothold on the nation's radio
ietworks for his National Music
Camp Orchestra today after six
-years of Union-enforced exile
from the air-waves.
Announcing that the Mutual
i Broadcasting System would defy
a Petrillo edict, Dr. Maddy said
his high school musicians would
rake over a weekly half-hour spot
on a coast-to-coast hookup.
First Broadcast
"The first broadcast will be on
the evening of Monday, July 5,
:nd the series will end on Aug.
16. . .This will be a sustaining pro-
;ram. There will be no fees. The
,ire charges will be met through
an appropriation made by the
VMichigan State Legislature," Dr.
.Vaddy said.'
These broadcasts will be the
first by the Interlochen group
;ince it was banned from the air
>y Petrillo in 1942. At that time
ae claimed that the young ama-
eurs' program would deprivej
Jnion musicians of jobs.
Dr. Maddy hailed theaction of
MBS saying "I'm glad Mutual
rives more importance to law than
o the dictates of Petrillo"
Unfair List
The Music Camp is still on the
IBM "unfair list"'and has here-
ofore been refused air time byj
all networks.
Under terms of the contract,
dhe Music Camp Orchestra will
e heard from 9:30 to 10 p.m.c
each Monday from July 5 throughv
Aug. 16.r
In addition to the nationwidee
Broadcast, the Music Camp will
-ir regular weekly programs over
NKAR, the Michigan State Col-
.ege station at East Lansing, and
WUOM, the University's FM sta-s
Before the ban, the orchestras
played for 12 years over a Na-r
i;ional Broadcasting Co. network.
Since 1942, however, the summer
'roadcasts have been heard only
over WKAR and WCTM.

Late today the unofficial coun

cincts gave Dewey 76,318; Stassen
A large part of the unreport-
ed count was from Multnomah
County (Portland) which con-
sistently was giving Dewey a
substantial majority. It may be
Monday, however, before the
official count is complete.
Dewey flew from Seattle to Sac-
ramento today, and was congrat-
ulated on his Oregon triumph by
Gov. Earl Warren of California.
Warren is dark horse contender
for the Republican nomination
and California's favoriteson to
whom the state's big block of 63
delegates is pledged.
Dewey described the efforts of
his supporters in Oregon as "heart
Dewey's victory was in large
part due to his surprising up-
state support, which had been
largely conceded to Stassen.
Stassen's statement in Min-
neapolis that he had wired con-
gratulations to Dewey marked
the close of a campaign which
took both men into all parts of
the state and submerged impor-
tant state and local issues.
It also was a sharper set-back
for Stassen than the 12 delegates
would indicate. He had won in the
Wisconsin and Nebraska primar-
ies and a third win would have
been a strong supporting element
at the convention.
Dewey, loser in the other two
primaries, said while here he had
made a vigorous campaign in Or-
egon because "I am tired of see-
ing primaries go by default." This
was his first all-out campaigning
for the 1948 nomination.
Willow Dorm
Units To Close
For Summer
West Lodge, single student
dormitory area in Willow Village,
will close for the summer, but will
reopen for men and women stud-
ents in September.
Official closing time is 9:00 a.m.,
June 15, said Richard A. Correll,
Assistant Director of the Veter-
an's Service Bureau. He empha-
sized that although the West
Lodge Area was closing for the
summer, it was each resident's
responsibility to give a three day
notice of intent to vacate to the
West Lodge housing office.
Women Students
Women students should con -
tact the Office of the Dean of Wo-
men in Barbour gymnasium for
summer session housing. Mary C.
Bromage, assistant Dean of Wo-
men, said rooms would be avail-
able in league houses, and in sor-
ority houses for non-members,
either with or without meals.
Men students can obtain listings
from Esther C. Griffin, housing
nspector, in the Office of Student
Affairs, Rm. 2, University Hall.
West Lodge
The women's dormitory at West
Lodge will be open to women of
graduate age and to women vet-
erans as in the past, Dean Brom-
age said. She emphasized that it
s urgent for those desiring ac-
omodations to contact the Office
f the Dean of Women at once to
ign a contract.
Frances Dunkirk, in charge of
assignments to men's residence
halls, said that for the present
ime applications could not be ac-

cepted from advanced students
or campus dormitories. She said
hat all entering freshmen were
equired to live in University resi-
[ence halls on campus, and had

'To Miss Call.
If BillPasses
Action on Legislation
Scheduled I1ext Week
WASHINGTON, May 22-()-
All Congressional plans for draft-
ing 18 year old youths were re-
ported junked today,
A member of the Senate Armed
Services Committee said 12 of its
13 members have agreed to revise
its selective service bill to strip
out the section calling for one
year of compulsory military train-
ing for 161,000 18 year olds.
The member asked not to be
Squoted by name. Chairman
Gurney (Rep., S.D.) refused to
comment, but it was learned
that he has been checking the
committee members on this
Under the new proposal 18 year
olds would be allowed to volunteer
for one year of service. After that
they would have to serve four
years as members of the National
Guard or other reserve units with
regular drill periods and summer
training camps or cruises.
Men from 19 through 25 years
old would still be subject to draft-
ing for two years.
Army, Navy and Air Force lead-
ers have estimated that they will
get 250,000 volunteers for the one-
year training program, far more
than the 161,000 who were to have
been drafted.
House Speaker Martin (Rep.,
Mass.) last week announced that
the House would not accept any
scheme for drafting 18-year-olds
as provided in the Senate bill.
Senators Taft (Rep., Ohio),
Byrd (Dem., Va.), Wilson (Rep.,
Iowa) and others in that body
also had promised a vigorous
Senate fight against drafting of
the 18 year olds.
The revised Senate bill may be
taken up during the next week.
It is listed for consideration as
soon as the Senate acts on a
pending farm money bill and a
measure to admit 100,000 Euro-
pean displaced persons.
UAW Charges
DETROIT, May 22-(-)-The
CIO United Auto Workers today
accused Chrysler Corp. of
planning to use foremen and of-
fice workers as strikebreakers'
Monday and hinted the plan
might lead to violence.
Norman Matthews, leader of
the UAW's 11-day Chrysler strike,
made the charge when informed
the two non-striking groups would
ventory, a task normally assigned
be used next week to take in-

"Responsibility for any disorder
on the picket lines resulting from
this policy will rest squarely on
the shoulders of the company and
we are so informing law enforce-
ment agencies," Matthews de-
clared in a telegram to Chrysler

Demand Made tK



U.S. Proposal for Use of Force in
Holy Land Voted Town by Council
LAKE SUCCESS, May 22-(P)-The Security Council failed to-
night to accept an American-Russian demand for strong United
Nations action to stop the Palestine War.
Instead, it issued its second demand on Arabs and Jews to cease
fire. It fixed a deadline at 36 hours after midnight, Eastern Standard
Time, tonight.
The final vote on a much-amended resolution was'approved,
8 to 0. Syria, Russia and the Soviet Ukraine abstained.
The question of the UN using force really was decided, however,
when the security council did not approve the United States demand.
That preliminary vote was 5 to 0" * * *

Building of New U Maternity
Hospital To Start Immediately

Construction of the University's
new Maternity Hospital, to cost
$1,649,000, will "start immediate-
ly," according to Dr. A. C. Kerli-~
kowske, director of the University
Last Thursday the State Leg-
islature, in a special "adjourn-
ment" session, ended a deadlock
and passed a bill appropriating
funds for the hospital. At the same
time, plans for the General Ser-
vice building, Business Adminis-
tration building, chemistry and
engineering additions were given
the go-ahead by the Legislature.
Disgrace To State
In a recent visit to the old Ma-
ternity Hospital, Gov. Sigler
termed it" a disgrace to the state."
Subsequently he urged passage of
the bill authorizing construction
of the new hospital.
The new hospital will be fire-
proof and equipped with the most
modern facilities. The structure
will rise four stories with a sun
porch on the roof.
As now planned, the hospital
will cover three-quarters of an
acre and be constructed of a yel-

Try Accused
NEW DELHI, India, May 22-
(I)-The alleged triggerman and
eight co-defendants accused of
engineering the assassination of
Mohandas K. Gandhi are expected
to go.on trial for their lives next
week in historic Red Fort here.
The exact day the trial will be-
gin is still secret, presumably be-
cause the government fears an
outbreak of riots or disturbances
such as marked the period immed-
iately after Gandhi's assassination
on Jan. 30.
Security forces are taking elab-
orate precautions to prevent any
attempt to deliver N.V. Godse, ob-
scure Poona newspaper editor, and
his eight co-defendants, or shoot
them down in court or otherwise
silence them.
The great stone fort built by a
Mogul emperor and once the home
of be-jewelled Moslem rulers will
be cordoned off completely. Se-
curity guards will be posted every-
where about the high towered
walls whose 'half mile circumfer-
ence encloses palaces, shrines and
military buildings.

with six nations abstaining.
Before the final vote, Warren
R. Austin, U.S. delegate, served
notice the U.S. will call for further
action if this 36-hour cease fire
order is not observed.
On the critical paragraph deal-
ing with force, the United States,
Russia, the Soviet Ukraine, France
and Colombia voted for it; Brit-
ain, Syria, China, Canada, Bel-
gium and Argentina abstained.
With that thorny problem out
of the way, the delegates lost
little time in approving a cease
fire order; a demand for the
truce conunission to expedite a
truce for Jerusalem, and a call
on Arabs and Jews to work with
the UN mediator, Count Foke
Bernadotte, of Sweden.
"We believe the security council
should order the parties to stop
action. The United States will
vote for it solely because it calls
on the parties to cease fire in 36
hours. If they do not, the security
council must consider further ac-
tion," Austin said.
A UN observer speculated that
the Arabs might not accept the
cease-fire order when Faris El
Khoury, of Syria, abstained on
the final vote. El Khoury told the
delegates earlier that the Arabs
insisted on assurances against
partition and Jewish expansion
before they would accept an order
for a cease fire.
The United States delegate to
the United Nations made a strong
appeal for council action to de-
dlaresa threat to peace exists in
Austin declared that the
Arabs say they are in Palestine
to make peace but actually they
are waging a "bloody war."1
Mahmoud Bey Fawzi of Egypt
replied, to Austin that the Arabs
are not aggressors. He insisted
they merely were trying to restore
order at the invitation of -Pales-
tinian Arabs.
In London, the United States
and Britain sought a solution of
their differences over Palestine-
their biggest split since the war.
Responsible diplomatic officials
said they will make a new and im-
portant move jointly before the
United Nations soon in an effort
to bring the Jewish-Arab fight-
ing to a stop.

ment announced today it had de-
prived former King Mihai and

Bethlehem Is
Reached By
Egypt's Army
U.S. Consul General
Injured in Jerusalem
By The Associated Press
Egyptian mobile forces last
night reached Bethlehem, only
five miles from the embattled city
of Jerusalem where the Arab le-
gion has Jewish defenders bottled
in the old walled city.
The arrival of the Egyptian
troops in Bethlehem was announc-
ed in an Egyptian communique
which also said a mobile column
was pushing northward along the
Mediterranean coast. The force in
Bethlehem was apparently going
to join up with the Trans-Jordan
Arab Legion in the battle for Jer-
.600 Beaten Off
Jewish troops were prevented by
the Arab Legion from fighting
their way through to their besieg
ed comrades in the old walled city.
An estimated 600 Israel soldiers
were beaten off in their three and
a half hour assault at the Zio,
gate in the South Wall.
Hard pressed and apparently
running short of ammunition, the
Jewish ,troops in the city used
ancient underground passages W,
aid their defense.
