UN Officials
Renew Plea
For Peace
Western Powers
Reject Mediation
PARIS - () - United Nations
leaders Herbert V. Evatt and
Trygve Lie renewed their appeal
for Berlin peace after the West-
ern Powers refused once again to
negotiate with Russia until the
blockade is lifted.
THE WESTERN Power view-
point was set forth in three separ-
ate notes handed to the Assem-
bly President and Secretary-Gen-
eral by the United States, Britain
and France.
These notes, re-plying to last
Saturday's appeal byLie and
Evatt for four power Berlin
peace talks, said the Berlin situ-
ation is still a threat to peace
and must remain in the hands
of the Security Council under
present circumstances.
The new Lie-Evatt plea carries
a significant shift in emphasis.
In the original appeal the stress
was placed on possible four-power
* * *
IN THEIR new appeal, the two
leaders urged the big powers to
note "in particular" the part of
the earlier Lie-Evatt letter calling
on them to "lend their full and
active support to the efforts at
mediation of the Berlin dispute by
the president of the Security
One "neutral" source said the
new Lie-Evatt statement ap-
parently indicated the two lead-
ers had accepted the western
view that the Berlin conflict
should remain in the Security
In any event, it seemed obvious
that the appeal to cooperate with
Council President Juan Atilio
Bramuglia was directed at Rus-
sia since each of the three west-
ern powers in their replies to Lie
and Evatt specifically pledged co-
operation with Bramuglia.
A UN SOURCE said Lie and
Evatt expected no formalanswer
to their latest appeal.
"What is wanted is an answer in
deeds, not in words," this source
In the past Russia has taken
the position that the Berlin dis-
pute should be settled by the
council of foreign ministers and
not by the Security Council.
Aircraft Vital
For Security,
Stowers Says
Air power is national life insur-
ance, aircraft executive Harvey
Stowers told more than 300 speech
students at the second Speech As-
sembly of the year yesterday.
Stowers, assistant to the pres-
ident of the Aircraft Industries
Association, pointed out that,
"Without the security of air power
we will not have security at all."
DISCUSSING the bill passed by
Congress this year calling for an
expanded peacetime air force of
70 groups, he emphasized that
funds have only been provided for

the first year of the program.
The plan, according to Stow-
ers, calls for the production of
13,366 planes this year. Under
this plan the U.S. will have a
small but highly modernized, air
force in five years.
"Still, this air force will have
only one-fifth of the strength
which it had on V-J Day and pro-
vide adequate protection for only
ten months," he said,
ANSWERING the attack of
critics who have claimed that the
program is unnecessarily elaborate
and expensive, Stowers pointed out
that three impartial committees
working separately came to the
conclusion that an air force of 70

U.S. Sends More
Marines To China
By The Associated Press
The U. S. is speeding 1,000 more marines to its naval station at
Tsingtao, China, as a result of the southward surge of Chinese com-
Secretary of Defense Forrestal disclosed this. He said the Marines
will help evacuate Americans.
HE DID NOT make it clear whether they would fight the Reds
if necessary to maintain our position there.
What to do if the Communist horde grabs the city has be-
come a growing question. It involves American naval strategy,
and American prestige.
There are now 3,600 marines in Tsing-Tao, along with a 12-ship
task force.

AS THE UNITED STATES planned to send fresh troops to war-
torn China, the Chinese government high command in Nanking as-
serted the Communists have already lost 90,000 men.
Communists, on the other hand, claimed that nine govern-
ment divisions were "wiped out." That could also be 90,000 men.
Hard-pressed leader Chiang-Kai-Shek yesterday; sent a letter di-
rect to President Truman in Key West, Fla.

IT WAS LEARNED the Chiang appealed in the letter for en-
couragement to the hard-pressed armies and people of nationalist
China in their critical battle with the Communists.
Secretary of Defense Forrestal will fly from Washington to-
day to talk with the President regarding the grave developments
in China.
Forrestal told his news conference yesterday that while he had
submitted his resignation, along with other members of the Cabinet,
he is "at the service of the President."

THIS WAS JUST another indication that his desire to see the
President did not concern his own future, but a serious foreign policy

THE PLANS, as outlined by SL
Varsity Committee chairman Bob
Ballou, called for five bands from
dormitories and fraternities to
tour campus before the rally, pick
up students and take them to Yost
Field house.
A loud speaker was to be set
up and Oosterbaan and Dom
Tomasi would be asked to speak
to the crowd. The students
would then walk the team to
the busses.
"Walking through the crowd of
students with bands playing might
excite the team and we do not
want that , he said.
"OUR POLICY has always been
to leave quietly for all away games
without any formal sendoff," Oos-
terbaan said.
"It has succeeded," he added.
He did not want to change that
procedure for this game.
Plans for the send off, which
were backed by the Student
Legislature, IFC, Assembly, Un-
ion, AIM and Pan Hl, included
an Olson and Johnsontouch.
Ballou said that unexpected
things would be happening all
through the rally.
OOSTERBAAN stressed the
fact that he was all for any spon-
taneous sendoff that the students
wanted to give the team. "School
spirit and interest mean a lot to
all of us," he said. His only ob-
jection was to the formal demon-
stration, he said.
Ballou introduced a motion at
last night's SL meeting protesting
the policy of the Athletic Admin-
istration in regard to the rally.
The motion was tabled and will
be considered at SL's next'meet-

52 Petitions
Thrown Out
By Judiciary
Balloting Moved
To November 30
The all campus election was
ostponed one week by the Stu-
dent Legislature last night after
Men's Judiciary tossed out the pe-
titions of 33 J-Hop committee
This brought to 52 the number
of petitions invalidated by the Ju-
diciary Council this week. Only
twelve petitions for the J-Hop
committee elections were approved.
AFTER A stormy hour-long de-
bate, the Student Legislature voted
26 to 14 to push the election date
ahead to Nov. 30 and Dec. 1.
Postponement of the election
was requested by SL election
committee chairman Knight
Houghton because of the large
number of disqualified candi-
dates and the impossibility of
getting the names of the re-pe-
titioning J-Hap hopefuls print-
ed on the ballot by Tuesday.
Arguments raged in the Legis-
lature against the postponement.
Legislators claimed that it would
unfairly penalize candidates who
had good petitions and that the
campus would lose interest after
a week.
HOUGHTON said that the de-
lay would actually cause more
campus interest and would result
in the election of a more repre-
sentative group of candidates.
Men's Judiciary president Ev
Ellin said that the petitions had
been rejected in an effort to
combat students' apathy and
makethem realize the import-
ance of obeying their own rules
and regulations.
