UN Refuses
Soviet Arms
Cut Demand
Assembly Rejects
Atom Ban Plan
PARIS-UP) -The United Na-
tions assembly has decisively de-
feated Russia's demands for a one-
third reduction within a year in
the armed forces of the five great
powers and for the immediate ban-
ning of the atom bomb.
Instead the assembly adopted a
western resolution calling for fur-
ther study by the conventional
arms commission of steps which
would lead toward eventual arms
A * *
BEFORE THE decisions were
taken John Foster Dulles of the
United States called the Soviet
proposals "almost irresponsible"
and a "cruel deception." He said
the Russian resolution was more
dramatic than the western pro-
posal, "but it achieves drama at
the expense of oversimplifying the
Soviet Deputy Foreign Min-
ister Andrei Vshinsky charged
that the United States and Brit-
ain are carrying on. a "mad arm-
ments race" against Russia. He
aceused the U. S. of building up
a western European system di-
rected against the Soviet Union.
The vote on the Russian reso-
lution was 39 to 6. Only the na-
tions in the Soviet bloc backed
Russia's No. 1 project in the 1948
THE WESTERN resolution was
approved 43 to 6 with one country,
Yemen, abstaining. It means that
the conventional arms commission
will study next year how to organ-
ize an international organ for the
gathering of armament informa-
tion from UN members. The ma-
jority does not plan that any such
information will be submitted in
the next year.
Other developments:
1. Secretary of State Marshal
met with British and French
Foreign Ministers to discuss the
Ruhr. He also will confer with
Gen. Lucius D. Clay, U. S. mili-
tary governor for Germany, and
Ambassador Robert Murphy,
Clay's political advisor. Those
talks apparently will deal with
the Berlin blockade and possi-
bly other German problems.
Marshall will fly back to Wash-
ington to report to President
Truman on Monday.
2. The UN's second political
committee approved the preamble
of a proposal to extend the life
of the "little assembly" created
last year. Russia has boycotted
the little assembly.
3. Juan Atilio Bramuglia, Ar-
gentine Foreign minister, said a
way toward a peaceful settlement
of the Berlin deadlock may be
provided in the answers of the
four big powers to his question-
naire on Berlin currency. None of
the four powers has answered the
questionnaire thus far.

Brown Hits Broadway
For 'Wretched' Season

Predominance of Revival
Scorn of Famous Drama



"The Broadway theatre season this year is wretched."
This is the opinion of John Mason Brown, noted drama critic and
associate editor of the Saturday Review of Literature, who spoke last
night in Hill Auditorium as guest of the Oratorical Lecture Series.
"REVIVALS ARE taking the spotlight in the theatre world,"
Brown pointed out, "and in most cases the acting made the plays suc-

Train Missing
In Mid west
Snow Storm
KANSAS CITY-(1P)-A trans-
continental passenger train was
"lost" last night in western Kan-
sas snowdrifts as the first storm
of winter isolated several com-

of motorists.
The lost train was Santa Fe's

four eastbound Santa Fe passen-

After being held overnight in
Dodge City, the California Lim-

drifts at 8:30 a.m. yesterday.
The unexpected fury of the
storm caught whole communities
unprepared and many families had
little food on hand.

He decried the fact that a play
should have to be carried sheerly
by a actres's personality.
THE CRITIC also mentioned
Howard Lindsay's "Life with
Mother," which he described as
"an encounter with the male ego
as it is allowed to function in a
land which is women-run."
Brwn blamed the lack of good
dramas and literature today on
the fact that while many au-
thors can write about war
themes they cannot deal with
the post-war world.
"~World War II is as far away
now to the American people as
the Civil War, excluding of
course Southern women. The time
is ripe for memoirs," the speaker

"THE BEST BOOK to have
emerged from this decade is Rob-
ert E. Sherwood's "Roosevelt and
Hopkins," Brown declared.
Another great contribution to
the world's bookshelf as listed
by Brown, is Winston Church-
ill's "The Gathering Storm,"
which is "Filled with the Brit-
ish thunder of great tradition."
Turning to the screen, Brown
asserted that Laurence Olivier' s
production of "Hamlet" was one
of the most difficult of movie
"HE IS the greatest English-
speaking actor. "In fact, quoted
Brown, "Olivier's reading of Ham-

Deans Rule No
Double Holiday
Classes as usual will be the or-
der of the day next Friday.
Dean Charles H. Peake of the
literary college and Dean Walter
J. Emmons of engineering school
said yesterday that students will
be expected to attend classes the
day after Thanksgiving.
"Friday will be a regular school
day," Dean Peake emphasized .
"Many students misunderstand
or ignore the University's ruling
on attendance," he said. "It says
that they are expected to attend
classes regularly."
"The ruling does not mean that
students have no obligation to at-
tend regularly."
Dean Emmons said the engi-
neering college will conduct "busi-
ness as usual," and that students
will be expected to be present.
"There will be no system of
double cut penalties for Friday-
there never has been," he said.
"However, most students cannot
afford to cut too many classes.

In addition to the Big Nine

Continued local possession of the
trophy will depend on the out-
come of today's game.
Reports from Columbus yester-
day indicated that the overflow

throng would overtax housing fa-

Push Ahead East
North of Suchow
NANKING-(W) -Triumphant
government divisions today drove'
home their first big victory in1
months of civil war, reportedly
fanning out 70 miles east and 30
miles north of Suchow.
Gen. Huang Po-Tao's seventh
army group, whose firm stand on
the east flank helped turn the
course of a battle that saved Nan-
king, raced east along the Lun-
ghai railroad. This is Chinas main
east-west line.
patches reported his troops had
reached Hsinanchen, 70 miles east
of Suchow. If true, they are half-
way to Lienyunkang, east coast
port where three nationalist divi-
sions were landed in the early
stages of the battle.
Government troops also
claimed control of 30 miles of
the main trunk railway north of
Suchow. This in the line from
Tientsin and Nanking.
Gen. Chow Chih-Jou's rejuve-
natsed air force, which was the de-
cisive factor in turning back the
great Communist lunge toward
the heart of China, took a rest.
The fliers were heroes in a grate
ful capital.
tary authorities, considering the
battle over, have asked railway of-
ficials to accompany troops as
they move north to Suchow in or-
der to speed repair on sections of
the railway damaged by the Reds.
"How soon the Communists
are able to resume attacks
against the Suchow area de-
pends largely on how many ca-
ualties and losses of, supplies
they actually suffered,"-one ob-
server said.
The government says the Com-
munists lost 130,000 men in killed,
wounded and captured and puts
its own losses at 40,000.

IN AN CASE, it is unlikely the
Communists will venture out into
the Suchow plain again until
cloudy skies of winter make close
government air support difficult.
In North China, the besieged
Hopeh province capital of Paot-
ing still held out against Com-
munist assault, as did the Shan-
si province capital of Taiyuan to
the southwest, a peiping dis-
patch reported.
Paoting's plight was grim, how-
ever, with the Communists in con-
trol of the east, south and west
gates of the walled city. OA relief
column still was trying to reach
the city from the north.

COLUMBUS-This town is go-

Michigan move in to do battle
with Columbus's favorites, the
Buckeyes of Ohio State this after-
noon at the Ohio State Stadium.
Everyone in town has upset on
their lips and high hopes in -their
hearts, but that's all they have-
hopes and prayers. Whether the
miracle will happen remains to be
seen, but the experts have installed
Michigan as a 14-point favorite.
overnight stop in Toledo, came in-
to town this morning and are
staying away from the noise and
the tingling spirit.
For Michigan this game means
a second undefeated campaign
in succession, the 23rd victory in
a row, and finally, retention of
the Big Nine title.
An upset can throw the'title
race into a two way tie, if North-
western licks Illinois. But an upset
can also ruin the Wolverines hopes
for a mythical national title.

AND THERE isn't a man in the
country that realizes this as much
as freshman mentor, Bennie Oos-
terbaan. To him this may mean
the "Coach of the Year" crown
which is a great start on his head
coaching career.
This game means plenty to
eleven men on the starting of-
fensive-defensive units, too. For
them it will be the last time
they don the Maize and Blue of
Michigan. To Dick Rfenb ,
Donn Hersherger and Ed c-
Neill, the ends; to Ralph Kohl
and Joe Soboleski, the tackles;
to Dom Tomasi, ;Stn Wilkins,
and Quent Sickels, the guards;
to DanDworsky, the center; and
to Pete Elliott and Gene Derri-
cotte, the backs; this game
means the culmination of great
college careers.
The game will match the best
offense in the Big Nine against a
defense that has allowed only 41
points all season. The Wolverine
line has given up an average of 82
yards per game on the ground.
BUT THIS will be the prime
test. The Buckeye running trio of
burly, 220-pound Joe Whisler, Jim
Clark and Jerry Krall have all
averaged over six yards per try
this year. To this, add Alex Ver-
dova, a shifty senior, who, if
broken loose, can really carry the
mail, and you have a running at-
tack that will be hard to stop.
Pandel Savic, the tossing fool
at quarterback, gives the Buck-
eyes a potent aerial attack and
the booming punts off the toe of
Pete Perini have caused many a
foe to dig In around their own
goal line.
