Fraternities Pledge 535 New Men
Firm on Demands
PAPEIS - (/P) - Desperate at-
tempts by "neutral" nations in the
United Nations Security Council
to mediate the Berlin crisis appar-
ently were stalled.
Spokesmen for the United
States, Britain and France de-
clared that the Western Powers
are standing firm on their demand
that the Soviet blockade be lifted.
The three powers were reported to
feel that there had been enough
time for mediation and the Coun-
cil should go ahead with meetings.
ARGENTINE foreign Minister
Juan A. Bramuglia talked private-
ly again with Russia's Andrei Y.
Vishinsky. Informed sources said
the Soviet Deputy Foreign Minis-
ter told him that no answer had
been received from the Kremlin on
Western Power spokesmen
said in the absence of new Soviet
proposals they assumed Moscow
still insists that the Berlin case
must go to the four-power coun-
cil of foreign ministers packaged
with the whole German problem.
The spokesmen repeated that
"the blockade must be lifted be-
fore we go to the council of

AFTER MEETING with Vish-
insky, Bramuglia was reported to
have dined with John Foster
Dulles, U.S. delegate and foreign
affairs adviser to Gov. Dewey.
A high informant said Dr.
Philip C. Jessup, United States
Security Council deputy dele-
gate, told Bramuglia at a week-
end conference that the U.S. ap-
preciated his efforts but that the
Argentine 'did not understand
the Russian minds This inform-
ant quoted Jessup as saying
Americans believed any negotia-
tions would be fruitless.
Bramuglia was represented as
feeling that a tougher American
attitude sprang from the disclo-
sure that President Truman
planned to send Chief Justice Vin-
son to Moscow and the cancella-
tions of the plan after talks with
Secretary of State Marshall,
IN THE FACE of the apparent
deadlock, the Security Council is
expected to meet Wednesday or
Thursday to go over the Berlin
situation and perhaps open full-
scale debate. Only the Western
Powers have spoken so far, accus-
ing the Soviet Union of threaten-
ing world peace. Russia is boycott-
ing the discussions.
Berlin occupied the major
share of attention in UN halls
but arms reduction and Pales-
tine came up.
Britain put a resolution before
the Assembly's political committee
which would blame Russia for lack
of agreement on slashing arma-
ments. Last week Vishinsky ac-
cused the Western Powers of
blocking disarmament plans for
the last 20 years.
THE SOVIET Ukraine, Yugo-
slavia and Czechoslovakia support-
ed Russia in today's debate. El
Salvador, Canada, China and
France spoke in opposition.
On Palestine the British were
reported desirous of having a
meeting of the Security Council on
Holy Land problems. It was said
that they especially wanted to
know what has been done about
apprehending the assassins of
Count Folke Bernadotte, the UN
mediator who was slain in the
Jewish section of Jerusalem.

Magidoff To Tell Trials

Oratorical Lecture Series officials have Russia to thank for the

ousted on suspicion of espionage after twelve years, in Russia as an
American correspondent, lecture officials explained.

Activities of the government's
loyalty boards and the Un-Amer-
ican Activities Committee were
criticized by the Association of
University scientists in a forum at
Rackham last night.
Dr. Edwin Maise, of the mathe-
matics department, moderated the
discussion in which the attacks

FORMULATING a letter to
President Truman, Tom Dewey,
Rep. Parnell Thomas, Senator
Hickenlooper and David Lilienthal,
the scientists pointed up "errors"
in the government loyalty checks.
They said that as a result of
recent events, working for the
government has become unpop-
ular because of fear of a black
mark on one's reputation.
They suggested that hearings
should be held privately, and that
reputations should be protected as
much as possible.j
Dr. Maise quoted Lilienthal and
Truman in speeches against un-
necessary probes of the govern-
ment's scientists and said that a
poll of scientists who developed
the atom bomb showed that 75
per cent have declined or are re-
luctant to accept government em-
sian citizen, who charged him
and his publisher with espion-
However, no official investiga-
tion followed the charges. Instead
of a large trial with much pub-
licity, which would undoubtedly be
fitting to a spy, Magidoff and his
wife were allowed to leave the
country. Magidoff points to this
fact as evidence of his innocence.

IN HIS LECTURE "Why I was
Expelled from the Soviet Union,"
Magidoff tells of conditions in
Russia today. He will also make
some observations about Russian
moves in the field of international
Russian-born, Magidoff came
to this country when a boy, be-
came a citizen, and after attend-
ing the University of Wisconsin,
returned to Russia to work as a
correspondent. His voice should
be familiar to many for he cov-
ered the Russian front for NBC
in World War II.
Master of ceremonies tonight
will be Prof. G. R. Garrison of the
Speech and Radio Department.
Tickets for the lecture are on
sale today at the Hill Auditorium
box office from 10-1 and 2-5 daily.
Season tickets for the complete
lecture course will be available
through Oct. 12.
As a continuation of the Oct. 7
meeting, the campus chapter of
AVC will hold an emergency meet-
ing at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in the
Union to elect delegates to next
month's national AVC convention
Acting chairman Ev Bovard de-
clared that although there may be
charges of irregularities in the
election of delegates, those elected
will represent the true choice of
,the membership. He said that he
will certify those chosen at the
In addition to the election of
delegates the agenda includes ac-
tion to be taken on a plan to insti-

tional representation in the selec-
tion of delegates; and nominations
for local chapter offices for an

Victory for Tribe
Cleveland Staves Off Boston Rally
To Win 1948 World Championship
BOSTON-(AP)-Thanks to stout-hearted relief pitch-
ing by Gene Bearden in the tense closing minutes of play,
the Cleveland Indians staggered through to a 4-3 victory over
the Boston Braves in the sixth and deciding game of the World
In winning its first championship in 28 years, the Tribe
also was the beneficiary of a lucky double play in the ninth
whch probably saved Bearden from serious trouble.
One moment the crowd of 40,103 was sitting on the edge
of the seats, expectant of a rally that would square the series at three
games apiece, and carry the play-off right down to a seventh contest
The next moment it was all over for the Boston fans but for
the sad filing through the exits, and the Indians were boisterously
pounding Bearden across the back and half-carrying him in tri-
umph off the field.
Eddie Stanky, a steady little character right through the series,
opened the ninth by drawing a walk as the crowd raved. Connie Ryan
ran for him. Then came the heartbreaker. Sibby Sisti went in to pinch-
hit for Warren Spahn, who had done a brilliant piece of relief chunk-
ing for two innings, and attempted to sacrifice Ryan to second
with the tying run.
INSTEAD, HE BUNTED under Bearden's pitch and lofted the
ball straight up, directly in front of the plate. Catcher Jim Hegan
snared the horsehide and fired it to Joe Gordon.
The Braves were dead Injuns. Tommy Holmes, hero of Bos-
ton's victory in the opening game, lined out to Bob Kennedy In
left field to end the contest and make all Cleveland happy.
. Only the previous inning, the eighth, the Braves brought the
customers to their feet by slugging Bob Lemon, Cleveland's starting
chunker, from the hill and scoring twice to draw within a run of the
* * * *
WHEN BEARDEN inherited the ugly situation, the bases were
loaded with Braves and only one was out. Two Bostons scored on a
long fly to center by Clint Conatser and Phil Masi's ringing double
off the left field wall. Both Conatser and Masi were pinchhitters. But
that was all as the great southpaw bore down to get Mike McCormick
on an infield roller.
Cleveland scored its first three runs off Bill Voiselle, one of
them a home run over the left field wall by Joe Gordon in the
sixth. Spahn, doing his second relief chore in as many days, gave
up the last Indian marker in the eighth, before he got his bearings.
It proved, of course, to be the winning run of the series.
