Ward Verdict
Promised by
Chinese Reds
'People's Court'
To Decide Guilt
nese Communists reported yester-
day that their "people's court" at
Mukden has finished an investi-
gation and will give a verdict on
American Consul General Angus
Ward and four members of his
staff "in a matter of days."
This first word on their fate
was received by the State Depart-
ment and gave new urgency to
American efforts to free the five
from jail.
* * *
TWO VERSIONS of a Mukden
broadcast reported from Nanking
and Shanghai call Ward and his
staff members "criminals" and.
"culprits" and said they have been
questioned repeatedly since their
arrest October 24. They wre
charged with beating a Chinese
employe of the consulate.
The State Department, which
has denounced the charges as
"trumped up," meanwhile was
awaiting first responses from thet
30 nations to which Secretary
Acheson addressed an unprece-
dented appeal for concerted in-1
ternational action in behalf of
the jailed consul.
Acheson's message went to the
foreign ministers of Russia and of
four Eastern European Soviet sat-
ellites, among others.
* * *
THE BRITISH Foreign Office
expressed "concern" yesterday
over Ward's detention, and said
the American call for a concerted
protest is'being considered.
Yesterday's development raised
new uncertainties - whether the
Mukden court will go ahead with
a Communist-style trial regardless
of the international outcry, and if
so whether it will decree stiff jail
terms or impose merely nominal
sentences. "
Acheson Plea
Faculty comments were pessi-
mistic concerning the effectiveness
of Secretary of State Acheson's
personal appeal to 30 nations for
urgent action in the release of
American Consul General Angus
The State Department's new
step was labeled "a symbol of the
United States' desperation in
China" by Robert E. Ward of the
political science department.
* * *
"THERE ARE so few things the
United States can do to force the
Chinese Red regime to act as we
desire," he remarked.
Doubt as to the effectiveness
of the appeal was shown by Prof.
Russell H. Fifield of the politi-
cal science department.
"Because the Soviet Union has
most of the control in the Man-
churian Regime, the only action
done will be that which the Soviet
Union desires," said Prof. Fifield.

"IT IS RUSSIA therefore, who
will decide how effective Acheson's
appeal will be," he concluded.
Donald F. Drummond, of thes
history department, proposed
that "it is entirely possible that
the whole incident originated in
Moscow as a blow to American
Acheson's appeal was deemed
"unprecedented and unusual" by
Prof. Verner W. Crane, of the his-
tory department.

Show Slight'
Bloc vote exchanges appeared
spottily in last night's Student
Legislature election count as The
Daily went to press.
Tabulations made on 26 ballot
counts were compiled from the re-
distributed ballots of candidates
dropped from the running.
IN MOST cases, the ballots were
widely distributed when second
and third place votes were tabu-
lated, but signs of bloc voting ap-
peared in several instances.
As of the 26th count, heaviest
bloc voting appeared scattered
throughout the West Quad. One
Allen-Rumsey man dropped, and
of his 97 re-distributable ballots,
54 were divided among six other
West Quad candidates. Highest
total for one Quad candidate in
this count was 18.
The largest single figure was a
transfer of a 49 vote bloc in the
13th count. The exchange was be-
tween two independents who had
run on the same slate.
* * *
IN THE 23rd count, an Alpha Xi
Delta sorority candidate picked up
39 votes from a Delta Tau Delta
fraternity man.
Thirty-four votes were trans-
ferred from a Chi Psi to a Theta
Delta candidate on the 20th count.
Other large transfers were: 25
votes from Hayden to Cooley
House, both in the East Quad; 19
votes from Sigma Delta Tau so-
rority to Zeta Beta.Tau fraternity;
19 votes from Alpha Gamma Delta
sorority to Theta Xi fraternity;
and 18 votes from' Alpha Sigma Pi,
to Zeta Psi.
The over-all trend, however, was
for candidates to pick up votes a
few at a time from each other.

ballots were spoiled compared to
40 last spring.
Slugging it out for 41 coveted
positions on SL, J-Hop Commit-
tee and the Boards in Control of
Publications and Athletics were
the 99 candidates, most of whom
elbowed their way into the Un-
ion's counting room, where more
than 100 volunteers sat at a
huge horseshoe table tabulating
Ballot counting for the other
races went on in other rooms on
the third floor of the Union. The
crowd dwindled down slowly but
surely as women left to meet reg-
ular or late permissions, but the
counters had to look forward to an
all-night stand.

BIGGEST CRISIS in the elec-
tion came early yesterday evening
when election officials could not
find the ballot box at the Law
Club on their round of polling
places. The box was found a little
later in safe hands at the Union
where cold attendants had taken
it at 5 p.m.
Campus police Harold E.
Swoverland and Ike Slander fol-
lowed the University truck on its
rounds in picking up. ballot
boxes to insure an honest elec-
tion. Another able safeguard
was provided by Assistant to the
Dean of Students John Gwin.
Amidst all the confusion of sev-
eral hundred workers in the small
Union room, three election offi-
cials told of the noting in a tran-
scribed broadcast which will be
aired over WHRV at 12:30 p.m.
today from the Angell Hall stu-
dios of the Speech Department.
ANNOUNCER Tom Cramer in-
terviewed SL President John Ry-
der, Publicity Chairman Ginny
Bauer and a Daily reporter who
covered the elections.
Miss Zipperstein, when she
heard of her land-slide vote,
said, "I was wdisappointed that
the campus vote was not bigger,
but it feels wonderful to be
elected." She plans to continue
her work on SL and the National
Student Association.
Bill Duerr, runner-up, said, "I
was glad all the people I contacted
came out and voted. But I'm sur-
prised the vote wasn't higher be-
cause of all the organized cam-
paigns to get the vote out."
