PARIS-WP)-Russia was asked
in a resolution by the six neutrals
of the Security Council today to
lift immediately the Berlin block-
ade as part of an East-West settle-
ment in Germany.
The Big Four Powers were asked

within 10 days after the currenc
settlement to reopen negotiations
on German problems as a whole
and for lifting of transport and
trade restrictions to and from the
Soviet Zone.
Argentine Foreign Minister
Juan A. Bramuglia presented the
six-nation resolution to the
council. He adjourned the meet-
ing before the Big Four stated
their views, setting the next ses-
sion for Monday. A vote may
come then.

"in general we think that it (the

A British spokesman said his dele-

a satisfactory basis for settlement.

PARIS--(')-The French cabi-

troops to use their arms in de-

governors to ban any meetings.
There was no immediate esti-

The Interior ministry said the
two miners were killed at Firminy,
five miles southwest of St. Eti-

TIIERE ALSO were reports of
shootings at three other mines,
two in the St. Etienne area and
at Montceau-Les-Mines, about 100
miles to the north.
The ministry said militarized
police fired only after being fired
uptyn in compliance with strict
orders. An eyewitness said at
least 27 miners were injured,
seven seriously.
Police were reported to have
opened fire with submachine guns
on 1,500 attacking strikers, at

The CIO and AFL will carry on a joint workers' education pro-

He blasted the Board of Regents' decision of a week ago to

Civil Liberties are in danger of being sacrificed to the needs of

That threat to American rights was declared by speakers during

of the New York Herald Tribune Forum.
INTRODUCING THE TOPIC, 'Balancin -Security and Freedom,"
Prof. Harold D. Lasswell, professor of Law, Yale University warned
that the military program which we are starting to prevent dictation
from abroad contains within it seeds of dangrr which might unwit-
tingly result in the very garrison-police state which the U.S. wants
to avoid.
Atomic scientist Philip M. Morse, physics professor, Massa-

progress is already hampered by restrictio"s.
He proposed that only the most vital technical points of actual

of the program.
"Probably one of the first ac-

and the Extension Service execu-
tive committee will be channeling

tors through the same procedure
that is followed in all other exten-
sion courses," he said in an inter-

This involves approval by a spe-

BERLIN - UP, - The "German

fanfare the final draft of a com-
munistic constitution "for all Ger-
But the council spent most of
the first day's session attacking
the constitution now being writ-
ten at Bonn for the three west-
ern zones of Germany.
Otto Grotewohl, co-chairman of
the Soviet-sponsored social unity
party (SED>, charged tha't the
Bonn constitution is designed by
the United States, Britain and
France "only to split Germany."
WITH NO apparent chance now
of the three Western Zones join-
ing the self-styled all-German
"overnment, the Communists are
expected to put their constitution
into effect soon in the Eastern
Zone of Germany. Apparently
patterned after the other so-called
people's democracies of Eastern
Europe, it could prove to be the
basis of a permanent east Ger-
man state unless some agree-
ment is reached to re-unite the
whole German nation.
In drafting the rival eomisitu-
tions, t w Comut niAts here and
the anti-Communists in Bonn
met under the same flag-the
black, gold and red of the pre-
Hitler Wimar repuobli.
The Communsts called the state
which their constitution provides
a "German Democratic Repub-
lie." The American military gov-
ernment warned, however, that it
would be a democracy in name

IMMEDIATE organization of a
separate workers' education pro-
gram would be "premature" ac-
cording to former director Elder.
jHe said:
"Workers already support a
lot of things by paying high con-
sumers' prices . . . I think we
have enough decent people left
in Michigan to insist on "some
modification of the Univer-
sity's stand.
The University should have
raised the whole question "of
whether to continue the workers'
program with the State, but they
shut it down with no hearing,"
Elder said.

HOPKINS also pointed out that
Thursday's meeting of the Work-
ers' Educational Service's six-
member advisory committee was
the only one "since January, 1947."
A meeting was finally called
Thursday, he said, not to dis-
cuss criticisms or possible
changes in the program but
,merely to-inform the members"
of the reorganization voted by
the Regents a week ago.
Hopkins was present at the
meeting as well as Robert Scott,
secretary-treasurer of the Mich-
igan Federation of Labor (AFL),
John Reid, MFL legislative repre-
sentative, and Bill Kemsley, di-
rector of the state CIO education

cism of the former workers' edu-
cation program he had heard was
Stricker's blast that the two in-
dustrial economics lectures he at-
tended were biased in favor of

In Thursday's meeting with Uni-
versity officials, Hopkins "left it

To the Arab world Palestine is,
unfortunately, the symbol of the
conflict between their own desire
for self-government and the con-

Dr. John S. Badeau.
This was brought out in a lec-

In addition to this problem of

This results from poor agricul-

I LOVE THEE-If Minnesota is 'up' today, it may be because of
the 'Little Brown Jug.' The 'Jug,' symbol of the intense rivalry
between Michigan and Minnesota since 1903, is carried to each
football game between the two teams, and placed on the sidelines
for the duration of the game. At the end of the game, the earth-
enware trophy, originally valued at $.35 is awarded to the winning
team. The -ht4stime Minnesota possessed the 'Jug' was in 1942
when they beat Michigan, 16-14.
