Russia Bitterly Protests Assembly's
International Regulation Approval
PARTS--M~-The Western Powers won overwhelming approval
in the United- Nations Assembly for their international atomic control
plan.
The first major decision in the Assembly's 1948 session was taken
over bitter Russian protests. Soviet deputy foreign minister Andrei
X. Vishinsky said there war no point in new consultations on atomic
control since no basis for East-West agreement exists.
HE DESCRIBED the western plan as fantastic and unreal. It
would leave the economic life of other states at the "tender mercies"
of a control organ which would be controlled by the United States,
Vis'hinsky charged.
By a show of hands the Assembly approved the western plan

Students Get
Deferments
Draft-age students in the Uni-
versity Dental and Medical Schools
may be granted special deferment
until graduation in accordance
with the recommendations of a
special Selective Service Commit-
tee.
Deferments for all students in
the Dental and Medical Schools
are practically guaranteed unde
. ,ae plan.
THE PLAN also provides for the
special deferment of a certain
number of students who hav
completed at least one year o
college.
Under the plan students en-
tering the Medical or Dental
Schools in 1949, 1950 or 1951
may apply for admission now,
and, if granted a probationary
admssion, they would bede-
ferred until completion of their
pre-professional studies or until
the Deans of these schools
terminated their probational ad-
mission.
The extent to which the Denta
School will issue these deferment
bearing admissions will depend
upon the number and quality o
applications received, according t
Dr. R. W. Bunting, Dean of th
Dental School.
** *
DR. M. H. SEEVERS, Associat
Dean of the Medical School, sai
that the Medical School has a
yet reached no decision as to th
use they will make of the defer
ment set-up.
The plan, which is not oblig-
atory, permits the Deans to
issue deferment-bearing admis-
sions to a number of students
applying for admission in 1949
equal to 55 per cent of the 1948
freshman classes.
They may choose for special de
ferment 62 /per cent of this num
ber from those who seek admissio
in 195. They may grant defer
ments to a number of student
seeking admission in 1951 9pual t
the entire 1948 freshman class.
UWF Hears
Panel of Four
Role of Nationalism
Discussed by Expert
The role of nationalism in
world government was discusse
by a panel of four experts ato
UWF roundtable held last nigh
in the Union.
Prof. Palmer Throop of the his
tory department traced the his
tory of nationalism and said tha:
the humanitarian nationalism o
the last century gave way toe
realistic nationalism based o
economic rivalry.
"Religion and international la
are the two solvents of national
ism," he declared.
Prof. Robert Angell of the soci
ology department explained tha
the roots of nationalism are dee]
and can't be sloughed off. Nation
alism's good points should be uses
to foster a peaceful world, he said

ANYWAY, HERE IT IS-No, this isn't a picture of University alumnus Thomas E. Dewey glumly getting the latest election returns day
before yesterday, but of the then future (now ex-) Presidential candidate as he appeared in a Union opera of the early '20's. This
picture, exhumed from some musty files, would have run in yesterday's Daily if Dewey had won. He lost, but we're running it any-
way because of its intrinsic interest (and because we've already paid to have it engraved).

Petition Blanks
For Elections
Available Now
Petitions for all posts in the all-
campus elections to be held Nov.
23 and 24 are now available from

ical speakers ban, and a photo-
graph of the candidate.

Nobel Prize
Awarded to
T. S.SEliot
STOCKHOLM, Sweden - (P) -
Nobel prizes for 1948 were award-
ed today to the American-born
British poet Thomas Stearns Eliot,
the British physicist P. M. S.
Blackett and the Swedish chem-
ist, Arne Tiselius.
Blackett, winner of the physics
prize whose discoveries have con-
tributed to solution of atomic en-
argy problems, recently wrote a
book saying that Russia was right
n rejecting American plans for
atomic control.
The prizes are worth about $44,-
900 each. Earlier, the 1948 award
in medicine was given to Dr. Paul
Mueller, discoverer of the insect-
'killing powers of DDT.
The Swedish Academy gave
Eliot, 60-year-old native of St.
Louis, Mo., the literary prize "for
his remarkable pioneering work in
modern poetry." The - hard-to-
read poet built up his literary ca-
reer in England where he became
a British subject in 1927.
Tiselius won his award for his
discoveries in biochemistry and in-
vention of important laboratory
apparatus.
The Swedish Academy of Sci-
ence said Blackett, professor of
physics at Manchester University
Since 1937, merited the award for
his improvements of the Wilson
Thamber and discoveries in nu-
2lear physics about cosmic radia-
tion.
Dem Election
Victory Lauded
By Communist
The sweeping Democratic elec-
tion victory represents a healthy
:elf-assertion of the working class
and the people, James Jackson,
Michigan Communist Party secre-
tary, declared last night.
Speaking at a forum on civil
rights, sponsored by the campus
AVC chapter at the Allenel Hotel,
Jackson was the main center of
interest, being subjected to in-
tensive questioning by the audi-
ence.
The people recognized the un-
disguised reaction of one of the
major parties, but they were de-
ceived by Truman who masked his
capitalism behind "the homely
mask of a neighbor," he charged.
He pointed to the emergence
of the Progressive Party as an
event of historic significance.
It will continue to mushroom
because neither of the two old
parties offer a solution to the
problems of the people, he ex-
plained.
"They are both on one side-
big capital," he declared.
The Progressive Party did not
get a big vote because it failed to
explode effectively the lesser of
two evils theory, Jackson asserted.

WITH TRUMAN FN ROUTE
TO WASHINGTON - (A') - A
smiling warrior rolled on to the
capital with malice toward none
and a plea that the people "stand
behind me."
Word that the President is not
interested in a third term or in
any "reprisal" dismissals from his
cabinet was passed to newsmen
today by sources close to the vic-
torious Chief Executive.
THESE INFORMANTS said he
is content to let his record in his-
tory rest on his administration
during the next four years.
The smiling President, in ad-
dressing a crowd at St. Louis,
had voiced a plea that the peo-
ple "stand behind me."
Meanwhile, persons close to the
President gave this picture of his
present feelings and plans:
* * *
HE FEELS that he should con-
centrate on "securing the peace"
and strengthening the domestic
economy.
Mr. Truman's fighting spirit
was kindled by those who tried,
to sidetrack him before the last
Democratic convention,
With all its burdens, he wanted
a second term in his own right.
He feels that he has been vindi-
cated by his astounding upset vi-
tory.
He not only won a victory for
himself, and helped elect a demo-
cratic Congress, but he restored a
weak and sagging party.

On One Act Play Bill
The Speech Department's first bill of one act plays will be staged
at Lydia Mendelssohn at 8 p.m. today and tomorrow.
Directed and staged by students in advanced courses in theatre,
admission is free and no reserved tickets are required.

Hot Time
Firemen rushed to the Union
late yesterday to extinguish flames
that rose yards above the pave-

inated by his wife, daughter and
mother-in-law and who finally
leaves them for good.
"The Bronze Lady and the
Crystal Gentleman," directed by
Dick Charlton, will be the third
one-act on the program. Set in a
French asylum, the farce has for
it's hero a gentleman who wishes
to escape his wife and who enters
the institution to find peace.
A western setting will be the
background for the final play
"Summer Comes to the Diamond
O."

WHILE THE President traveled
back from the campaign wars, the
usually ho-hum national capital
hung out the flags and hoisted
the welcome banners for a new
political champion.
Bands were rounded up for a
gigantic parade when Mr. Tru-
man gets in at 10 a.m. CST to-
day.
And as he rode eastward by spe-
cial train from his Independence,
Mo., home, Mr. Truman brought
no "malice" toward the man he
beat or those who predicted a
Dewey victory.
"The man who is defeated," lhe
said, "feels badly enough without
being crowed over."
That, he said, was what he
would tell the Washington Post.
He got a telegram from the paper
inviting him to a turkey dinner
at which pollsters, political writ-
ers and radio commentators would
munch "breast of tough old crow."
