GOP Race
In Oregon
Defeats Hoover
By 2-1_Majority
PORTLAND, Ore.-(N?-Oregon
Republicans endorsed their liberal
Sen. Wayne Morse with a thump-
ing majority that was approach-
ing 2 to 1 as counting went on yes-
L His margin over conservative
farmer DaveHoover was enough
that Hoover conceded only four
hours after the polls closed in
Friday's primary election.
But the Democrats, hoping to
relax the long-held Republican
strangle-hold on Oregon, were in
doubt who they had nominated to
oppose Morse or for governor.

MORSE WAS considered an al-
most certain winner next Novem-

ord will attract many Democratic
votes. He has supported much of

The Democrats have high hopes
of taking over state control this
year because they lead in the
number of registered voters for the
first time. But Oregon hasn't elect-
ed a Democratic Senator since
1914, and Oregon was the only
one of the 11 western states to vote
Republican in the 1948 presiden-
tial election.
In Tennessee former Republican
National Chairman Carroll Reece
last night announced his candi-
dacy for Tennessee's first Congres-
sional district seat which he occu-
pied for 24 years.
One of the hottest political
scraps of this election year shaped
up with the simultaneous an-
nouncement for reelection by in-
cumbent Dayton Phillips.
Reece and Phillips have been at
" outs since the latter won the nom-
ination for the seat Reece vacated
in 1946 to become GOP chairman.
The issue will be settled in the
Aug. 3 Republican primary.

Americans celebrating "Armed

shows of unified strength and
highly polished teamwork in
Washington and Berlin yesterday.
President Truman reviewed a
70-minute parade of 6,500 mem-

pleted, the school will still offer
a basic program in Detroit, and
will work in coordination with
the different social agencies of
that city.
* * *
"THIS ACTION by the Board of
Regents is a recognition of the
importance of social work as a
field of public service," President
Ruthven declared.
"It is also a recognition of the
continuing need for specialized
training for professional service
in this field."
By locating the headquarters
of the School ofsSocial Work in
Ann Arbor, resources of such
branches of the University as the
School of Public Realth, the Med-
ical School, the School of Educa-
tion, the Institute of Public Ad-
ministration, the Neuropsychia-
tric Institute and the economics
and sociology departments will be
made more easily accessible, Pres-
ident Ruthven added.
Further study of the organiza-
tion of the school and the de-
velopment of its educational facil-
ities will be carried on during the
next six months, President Ruth-
ven said.

South Amboy
Area Virtual
Hold Little Hope
For Lost Men
SOUTH AMBOY, N.J. - (/P) -
Men with mine detectors moved
cautiously along the shell-littered
waterfr6nt last night in search of
some trace of 22 men still missing
in the South Amboy munitions dis-
Four bodies already have been
recovered. Hundreds were injured.
Rescue workers conceded there was
practically no possibility of finding
any of the missing still alive.
* * *
sives had roared into the air in
one terrifying rumble that was
heard in three states. The ex-
plosives were being loaded from
freight cars onto barges to be
shuttled to a ship waiting out in
lower New York Bay.
All the 22 missing men had
been at work on the loading
operation on the South Amboy
waterfront. Their foreman, who
had walked away from the site
when the pier behind him rose
up in one spout of black smoke
and flame, said he turned and
suddenly could find no one.
The foreman, Austin Stotle of
South Amboy, was the principal
witness yesterday before an official
Coast Guard board of inquiry. He
told them he saw nothing unusual
about the area just before the
blast and had no reason to suspect
THE BOARD of inquiry was told
that 9,000 cases of military anti-
personnel and anti-tank mines and
2,000 boxes of dynamite had gone
up in the blast.
Some of the munitions had
been rained onto the city still
unexploded, turning the area in-
to a treacherous mine field with
all the dangers of a front-line
combat zone.
Sound trucks toured the town to
warn residents to watch where
they walked and not to touch any
strange objects. Army Engineers
combed the area with their electri-
cal detectors in search of the un-
exploded mines, each of them nor-
mally capable of killing a man or
blowing up a car on contact.
The blast at 6:25 p.m. (EST)
Friday night was heard in three
states - New Jersey, New York
and Pennsylvania.

Gargoyle Folds
Aifter 41 Years
Of Laughter
Gargoyle has had its last laugh.,
The 41-year-old campus humorI
magazine succumbed, apparently
of natural causes, at the weekend
meeting of the Board in Control
of Student Publications.
* * *


FINANCIAL difficulties and a
lack of student interest were cited
by the board as reasons for the
muffling of Gargoyle's raucus,
often ribald voice.
The question of good taste
concerning some of the editorial
matter did enter into the deci-
sion, the board admitted, but
the 'deciding factors were said
to be the fact that the magazine
was not paying its way and that
an "inadequate" number of stu-
dents were interested in staff
Gargoyle will have one last
snicker, however.
The final issue of the magazine
which is at present in the hands
of the printers will appear on
campus sometime before the end
of the semester, according to
managing editor Brian Duff, '50.

Original Request
Cut by_$2,000,000
By The Associated Press
LANSING - University hopes
for an increased appropriation
grant went "down the drain" yes-
terday when the House of Rep-
resentatives on a 71-20 vote pass-,
ed the $270,000,000 Republican
"economy" state budget after less
than two hours of debate.
Fourteen Democratic amend-
ments attempting to increase over-
all totals were defeated.
Among the defeated amend-
ments was one which would have
increased the University grant
from $11,572,945 to $12,500,000.
The passed bill represents a cut of
approximately $2,000,000 from the
$13,870,000 the University request-
ed for operating expenses,

Gov. Williams has contended is

At the last minute the Republi-
can-controlled Legislature backed
away from a plan to recess until
Dec. 30 instead of adjourning in
the normal fashion. Instead it ad-
journed until June 20 without set-
ting the constitutional sine die ad-
journment date - this leaving a
long recess still a possibili;t. m
Thus the Legislature will return
June 20 and either quit for good
or adjourn until August or Decem-
ANGERED at the way in which
the long recess was passed in the

cratic minority to block suspension
of the rules so that the House
could act on Senate amendments

Unable to force their way past
the stubborn minority, the House
had the bill recalled to the Senate
and the troublesome amendments
Since the House had passed the
bill in its original form, it was
ready for the Governor's signa-
ture. With exception of a con-
increase the bill is unchanged from
this year.
Mindful of the approaching elec-
tion, the GOP gave Gov. Williams
only seven of the 26 proposals he
submitted to the lawmakers when
he summoned them to his first
special session March 15 and i,

55 Killed in
German Coal
O)-An explosion ripped through
the Dahlbusch Coal Mine near
here yesterday, killing 55 miners
and injuring 39 others.
That was the official count early
today when all miners who had
been working in' the 3,022-foot
deep seam had been accounted for
by rescue squads.
More than 300 miners were at
work when the blast, attributed to
a gas accumulation known as fire-
damp, occurred.
Officials said many men died in-

stantly from terrible burns, while
others were suffocated. Many of
the injured were severely' burned.
It was West Germany's worst
coal mine accident since the Grim-
