Revolt Rages
In Paraguay;
Army Rebels
Capital Bombed
In NewUprising
tary revolt raged tonight in As-
uncion, capital of Paraguay.
The government radio said its
forces were battling with an army
leds by 0o. Carlos' Montanaro, who
seeks to overthrow the regime of
President Natalacio Gonzalez.
IT WAS the second time in a
year that the country was plagued
by revolution.
There was no direct commun-
ication with Asuncion and the
situation there appeared to be
confused. The government radio
announced that Montanaro had
surrendered, then said an hour
later he had backed down on a
promise to surrender and fight-
ing continued.
The revolt started yesterday
when a plane dropped several
bombs on Asuncion. That appar-
ently was the signal for Col. Mon-
tanaro to lead cadets from the
Paraguayan military academy in
the revolution.
* * *
THE RADIO admitted resist-
ance continued in the academy
buiding and would be difficult to
mop up.
Reports received here said the
cadets, joined by 200 sailors, had
given battle to the police, who
remained loyal to the govern-
The latest report put out by the
Asuncion radio said a pocket of
rebel resistance had surrendered
in the heart of the city but other
revolutionaries were fleeing to a
village across the Paraguay River
from the Argentine town of Puerto

THE RADIO said President
Gonzalez had gone to the head-
quarters of a cavalry division at
the nearby military establishment
of Campo Grande. It added that

Crowd Calls
Nuns 'Devils'
LISBON, Portugal - VP) -The
people of Albufeira clamored be-
fore the Convent of the Barefoot
Carmelite nuns today, denouncing
them as devils.
The 11 nuns within the old. man-
sion, which had been dedicated to
their use, stood fast behind barri-
caded doors, refusing to be dis-
banded as the congregation of re-
ligious orders of the Roman Cath-
olic Church had ordered.
The nuns were ruled to be non-
conformist and to be refusing
entry to priests and the Bishop of

against them. The convent was or-

THE NEW RULING would require a fraternity as a group to make
a 2.4 scholastic average once every four years in order to retain its
initiation privileges.
Any house which fails to strike such an average during a two-
year period would be placed on social probation.
The 2.4 mark is slightly below the University average for men.

Health Service
Begins Battle
To Down Flu
Students Will ReceiVe
First ShotsToday
First shots in an all out war
against influenza will be fired this
morning when students whose last
names begin with A and B get it
in the arm.
This barrage is part of an ex-
tensive two week campaign Health;
Service is waging to keep the cam-
pus epidemic-free by providing
free flu shots to all students.
A NEW VIRUS has been added'
to the two used last year to pro-
vide a three way threat to influ-
enza, according to Dr. Thomas
Francis, Public Health School
epidemiologist, the consultant for
the injections.
Protection is effective seven to
ten days after injections and
lasts from seven to twelve'
months, said Dr. Margaret Bell,
Health Service physician.
Students are asked to use the
north door when reporting for in-
jections. After filing information
cards, they will be directed to oneI
of the eight nurses who give the
shots at the rate of -about 200 an
hour. Shots are given on a volun-
tary basis, but everyone is advised
to take advantage of the service.
* * sI
THE FOLLOWING schedule has
been posted for injections: A, B,
October 26, C, D, October 27, E, F.
G, October 28, H, I, J, October 29,
K, L, November 1, M, N, , Novem-
ber 2, P, Q, R, November 3, S, No-
vember 4, and T-Z, November 5.
Members of the faculty, em-
ployees, and student wives will
be given shots November 1-5 for
the charge of one dollar.
"As with any other vaccine, like
typhoid, you can expect a reac-
tion," said Dr. Bell. There may
be reactions such as soreness of
the arm, chills, fever, and gener-
alized aching in which case the
student is advised to take 2 as-
pirins everyhfour hours and 'take
it easy.' These reactions seldom
last more than 24 hours."

sub-committee on scholarship of
the Alumni IFC, but the plan was
not implimented until this fall by

Town Meeting
Climaxes UN
Week Here
UN Week was climaxed Sunday
by a Town Meeting of the World
featuring a symposium of dis-
tinguished speakers in the Hussey
Room of the League.
Dean Hayward Keniston of the
literary college opened the pro-
gram with an informal talk on the
UN in which he, said the veto
must go if the group is to function
* *, *
HE SOUNDED a note of hope,
however, by hailing the League of
Nations and other international
agreements as significant results
in the struggle for world unity.
Professors Samuel Eldersveld
of the political science depart-
ment and Mischa Titiev of the
anthropology department and
three students who have been
abroad composed the symposium
panel discussing "It's Your UN."
With Dr. Manfred Vernon of the
political science department as
moderator, each of the symposium
members told the need of the UN
from his point of view.
* .4 *
ELDERSVELD stated that the
political scientist is aware of how
politically and economically inter-
dependent the world is; Titiev
pointed out that anthropologists
know society to develop from small
groups to large ones, which points
to an ultimate world community.
Other topics, such as what
the UN has accomplished and
whether or not individual na-
tions should give up their sov-
ereignty, were discussed.
Jal Barucha, Bill Miller and
Wyn Price were the student mem-
bers of the panel.

sions will be completely restricted.

Truman, Dewey Set Out
Ons Last Campaign Tours

CHICAGO - (R) - President
Truman suggested last night that
forces similar to those that backed
tlitler, Mussolini and Tojo are
"working through the Republican
Party" and seriously threatening
America's democracy and freedom.
"IN OUR OWN time," he said,
'we have seen the tragedy of the
Italian and German peoples, who
.ost their freedom to men who
mnade promises of unity and effi-
2iency and security."
Republican Presidential nomi-
nee Thomas E. Dewey has been
preaching unity and efficiency
throughout his campaign.
In the first major address of
,iis windup campaign tour, the
President also linked together
these ideas: '.
1. The real danger to American
democracy is not from "con-
temptible" Communists or "crack-
pots" on the right, but comes
mainly "from powerful reactionary
forces which are silently under-
mining our democratic institu-
2. These forces are "working
through the Republican party."
3. History shows that economic
power concentrated in the hands
of a few men has led to loss of
freedom. Such men look for a
"front man" to run the country.
Hitler, Mussolini and Tojo are
examples, "and it could happen

French Mines
Pickets Surrender;
No ViolenceReported
PARIS - () - Thirty thous-
and heavily armed French troops
and police occupied approximately
half of the nation's key northern
coal fields today and seized at
least 12 struck mines.
No violence was reported as the
government forces, including Mo-
roccan infantry units, moved in
before dawn. Pickets meekly sur-
rendered the pits to troops backed
up by armored cars and heavy ma-
Government officials used bat-
tle-like language to describe the
operation, saying: "all objectives
were reached with out incident."
The government forces swept
over about 280 square miles in the
area near the Belgian border. The
main seizures of struck mines took
place at Valenciennes and Douai.
About 15 arrests were made.

For Soviet Union
PARIS -- (P) - Russia's Andrei

the Berlin dispute.
It was the Soviet Union's 28th
veto and the second cast by Vi-
hinsky personally. The vote was

Ukraine casting the lone negative
Argentine Foreign Minister
Juan Atilio Bramuglia, Acting
President of the Council, told
newsmen: "I will keep on trying
to get a peaceful settlement."
HE SPOKE for the five other
"neutrals"-China, Syria, Bel-
jium, Canada and Colombia-as
well as his own country.
"I am sure," Bramuglia said,
"neither of the parties wants to
reach the worst now. And it is
my duty to try to bring them
to an agreement. Their differ-
ences have been very much
ironed outso far and they may
still be brought to a coincidence
in viewpoints."
The discussion just before the
vote disclosed that the major
sticking point between Russia and
the Western Powers is: when will
the Russian blockade on Berlin be
lifted, and when will the Russian
mark be made the currency for all
four sectors in Berlin?
Dr. Philip C. Jessup, U. S. dele-
gate, told the council that respon-
sibility for stopping council ac-
