escribed as Communist led.
Possibly 4,000 Korean troops in
he U. S. occupation zone were in-

KOREAN ARMY headquarters
n Seoul reported othat while the
eaport of Yosu-focal point of the
ay old uprising-presumably was

Headquarters received an un-

had extended as far as Na won,
50 miles north of Yosu. This in-
formation said only a few insur-

There was no indication of
large-scale fighting.

Debaters Swap Words
On Partiality of 'Daily'
(Daily City Editor)
The Michigan Daily was verbally dissected before some 500 stu-
dents and faculty members gathered for the first Speech Assembly
of the year in Rackham Auditorium yesterday.
FOUR MEMBERS of the varsity debate team took part in a
spirited discussion on the question, "Resolved: The Michigan Daily
is not representative of student opinion."
Bob Russell and Jack Wirth spoke on the affirmative and
Bill Joselyn and Duane Sunderman took the negative.
Each speaker presented a four minute case and was then sub-
jected 'to questioning by his opponent. The questioning was marked
by wisecracking which brought laughter from the audience.
Affirmative. .
LEADING OFF FOR the affirmative Russell said The Daily tends
to overevaluate news of certain small groups on the campus and
neglects representative organizations.
He said the AVC and the Olivet College issues had received
heavy play while the formation of a new Business Administration
School Council and imposition of higher scholastic standards on
fraternities had been neglected.
Russell charged that the editorials were of a destructive rather..
.than of a constructive nature.
* * '. '.
ALSO SPEAKING for the affirmative Wirth claimed The Daily
has failed to adequately and fairly represent student opinion, citing
a straw vote last year as proof that 66 per cent of the campus favored
conservative Republican candidates.
He said the Student Legislature and the IFC had been forced
to issue their own newsletter because these groups failed to get
adequate news coverage in The Daily.
Wirth said the majority of the editorials appearing in the paper
this year were written by a small group on the staff and were liberal
instead of conservative.
* * * *
SPEAKING ON THE negative,'side of the question Sunderman
made three points endeavoring to show that The Daily was represen-
Sunderman said every member of the staff is eligible to write
editorials for the paper and that any student may express his
opinion in the "Letters" column. "No bias is shown in the selection
of these letters or editorials for print" he declared.
The Daily aggressively seeks student opinion through polls and
interviews for news items, Sunderman concluded.
The final negative speaker was Joselyn who said The Daily
should not be criticized for minor mistakes but evaluated on its overall
performance as a newspaper.
* '* *~ *
HE SAID the 200 members of The 'Daily staff were chosen andj
promoted on the basis of literary merit and not ideological beliefs.
This staff represents every shade of opinion, according to Joselyn.
He pointed out that The Daily is the only college newspaper
in the Middle West which solicits editorials from every member of
the staff. And he emphasized that the only basis of selection of these
editorials is from a literary standpoint.

UN Neutrals
Have Plan for
Berlin Crisis
Western Powers
PARIS-()-A new formula for
settling the Berlin crisis was sub-
mitted to the Big Four powers by
the six "neutral" members of the
United Nations Security Council.
Authoritative quarters said the
new resolution appeared "eminent-
ly satisfactory" to the Western
powers. Russia's Andrei A. Vish-
insky promised to send the draft
to Moscow for study.
*. * *
ONE NEUTRAL source said
Vishinsky had approved the res-
olution conditionally, but there
was no confirmation of this from
the Soviet delegation or from any
other source.
Some Western sources, while
agreeing that the plan offered a
possible way out, were cautious
about itschances of success.
One high Western official said:
"THE POSSIBILITY of a settle-
ment remains, but I would go no
farther than that."
The resolution was reported to
recommend that Russia lift the
Berlin blockade within 48 hours
after the Security Council ap-
proved the proposal.
The Western powers, on their
side, were asked to agree to a
meeting of the Council of For-
eign Ministers on Berlin and the
whole German problem imme-
diately after the blockade is lift-
One neutral source said the
framers of the proposal were hope-
ful of winning Soviet support by
making the points recommenda-
tions and not submitting them as
demands on the big powers.
THIS development followed a
series of UN actions in which the
Western Powers' plan for world
atomic controls extending behind
the iron curtain won overwhelming
approval in the General Assem-
bly's Political Committee.
Then Latin American and Arab
nations joined in forcing post-
ponement of UN debate on Pales-
tine. The Russian bloc charged it
was a move to delay consideration
until after the Nov. 2 presidential
elections in the United States.
Meanwhile fighting continued in
Palestine despite a new Security
Council order yesterday for a

the truce but the ministers con-

of their answer to the Security

should be a warning to Germany:
"Korea offers a parallel of what
would happen in Germany if the
Western Powers , should accept
Russia's proposal that all occu-

editor of the newspaper Sozial-

opinion of the situation.

"THE PUTSCH in Korea is a
warning to American policy," add-
ed Jacob Kaiser, chairman of the
Christian Democratic Union, a
conservative party.
Karl - Hubert Schwennicke,
chairman of the Liberal Demo-
cratic party, another right wing
group, commented that if

Western troops are pulled out of
Germany "It can be expected
that serious unrest would de-
velop-as in Korea - which
would give the Soviet Union a
chance to re-impose its occupa-
tion 'in the interest of peace'."
The Germans noted that the
South Korean uprising in the
American Zone broke out the very
day Moscow announced Russian
troops were beginning to leave
North Korea. Dispatches from
Seoul in the American Zone of
Korea said bands of soldiers, al-
leged by Home Minister T. Y. Soon

risings at two towns.

PROPONENTS of the plan cited

by NSA at the University of Buf-
falo where 1,500 students partici-
pated in the plan.

with NSA the group voted the
national and regional dues, and
set up a temporary definition of
NSA scope and relationship
with SL.
Under this definition, subject to
change by the National NSA
board, only actual delegates to the
Congresses will vote on national
matters, with Legislature NSA
committee members voting with
the delegates on local issues.

which would give NSA delegates a

session. The latter motion will be

In Dismissal
Soop Will Assume
Control of Program
An administrative shift has

Under the new plan the pro-
gram of workers' education will be

extension courses.

THE CHANGE drew quick fire
from Victor G. Reuther, director
of the UAW-CIO educationde-
partment, and August Scholle,

May by Adam K. Stricker, a Gen-

economics class he attended for
three hours presented "the Marx-

is the initial step in carrying out
the Board of Regents' decision at
its last meeting Saturday.
Under Elder's direction It
functioned as a special unit of

cedures and other such non-cul-

THE REGENTS votedd7-1 for
his dismisal, Elder said. Their
statement after the meeting Sat-

"is to offer to workers additional
opportunities for general educa-
