UN Delegates
Calls Nationalists
NEW YORK-(A)-Rassia called
the Chinese Nationalist delegation
a bunch of pygmies yesterday and
said Moscow no longer recognizes
their right to represent China in
the United Nations.
Andrei Y. Vishinsky, Prime Min-
ister Stalin's top diplomat, told
the 59-nation General Assembly
the Nationalists here couldn't rep-
resent China even if they wanted
to because-he said-350,000,000
of China's 450,000,000 people have
recognized the Communist regime
headed by Mao Tze-Tung in Peip-

A president of Nationalist China who
now is in British Hong Kong,
angrily replied that Russia had
perpetrated serious international
crimes in China.
He told the Soviet foreign
minister that God and the con-
science of the world will indict
Russia even if the Nationalists
lose their seat at the U.N.
The heated exchange occurred
at Flushing Meadow as an offshoot
of debate on proposals for banning
atom bombs and for control of
atomic energy by international
The Russian and Chinese
spokesmen made their statements
against the backdrop of two im-
portant political developments in
China; (1) the Nationalist gov-
ernment's decision to abandon
Chungking, and (2) the Commun-
ists' release of Angus Ward,
American consul-general at Muk-
den, and his staff from prison
under a deportation order.

VISHINSKY touched off the
fireworks here when, in the middle
of a long speechion atomic energy,
he shouted that Russia does not
regard "the Kuomintang delega-
tion",as te legal Chinese sPOtes-
This was interpreted as indi-
eating that the Soviet Union will
play a leading role in the im-
pending battle to get the Chi-
nese Communists a big power

already has indicated it will take
an active role in this fight.
When Vishinsky completed his
speech, Kan demanded the floor.
He shouted nervously: "Mr. Vi-
shinsky, your mere wish will not
put the Chinese Communists in

VISHINSKY and his seven-man
delegation laughed out loud as
the nationalist spokesman con-
"If your wish were law then 80

Election post mortems reveal
15 independent and 13 affiliated
candidates elected to Student
Legislature's 28 seats after a hec-
tic night of ballot-counting afterj
the second day of campus voting.
Because of a reduced election
quota used by SL officials in their
own special version of the Hare
Proportional Representational
System, the 28th candidate was
elected at 3 a.m.

REGULAR quota would have
been 240, but SL member Tom
Walsh and Duane Nuechterlain re-
duced it to 210, which would have
been the quota after several
counts. Main advantage to the re-
duction was quicker election of
candidates . and more sleep for
The proportion of affiliated
students was close to that of the
independents who were elected.
Thirteen out of 27 affiliates got
in; 15 out of 31 independents
made it.

J-Hop election necessitated a com-
mittee of 10 persons.

MOST OF THE women candi-

late permissions, so counters and
supporters of those who were
elected serenaded them at the
dorms at 3 a.m.
East and West Quad candi-
dates paced the election among
dormitory hopefuls for SL. Six
candidates out of 10 from West
Quad were elected while five out
of nine from East Quad got in.

Women's dorms didn't fare
so well. The two small dorms,

Ward Freed,
Ordered Out
Of Red China
Consul Workers
Also Deported
Consul General Angus Ward, held
for a month in a Communist jail
at Mukden, China, has been re-
leased and ordered to leave the
country, the State Department an-
nounced yesterday.
Four consulate employes jailed
with Ward also were freed. A
Communist "people's court" con-
victed them along with Ward but
decreed that they too be deported.
THE STATE Department, which
has indignantly denounced the
treatment of the American official
as "barbaric," immediately relayed
instructions to Ward to get out
of Mukden and bring his entire
staff with him-"forthwith."
This latest action in the sen-
sational case which has attract-
ed world attention came with
lightning speed after the 56-
year-old diplomat himself re-
ported that his four weeks im-
prisonment had ended in a
Communist conviction and de-
portation order.
He added that he and the four
consulate employes arrested, held,
convicted and ordered deported
along with him were able to be
"up and about." All have returned
to their homes in the consulate
compound in Mukden, he said
w * *
WHILE TOP State Department
officials felt that their first ob-
jective had been gained with the
physical freedom of the five men
from prison, they were maintain-
ing an anxious watch of incoming
telegrams for first word that the
Communists actually are making
arrangements to get Ward and
his people out of town.
There are 12 American offi-
cials and at least two Europeans,
Mrs. Ward and Mrs. Shiro Tat-
sumi, the Japanese wife of a
Japanese-American employed by
Ward. The Tatsumis are report-
ed to have four children with
them in Mukden.
The first big break in the case
since the consul general was ar-
rested on October 24 came in mid-
morning yesterday when the State
Department announced it had re-
ceived word that the Communists
had finished their trial of Ward
and his associates and that they
had been released from jail. Ward
immediately telephoned American
Consul General 0. Edmund Clubb
at Peiping and Clubb rushed a
dispatch to the State Department.
Important details of the inter-
national incident remained to be
filled in. Ward hasn't had a chance
to tell his side of the story. The
Communists charged him with
beating a Chinese employe of the
consulate. State Department offi-
cials have insisted that the charge
was trumped up.
Hold Card Party'
A "card party" will be given by
SRA-WSSF from 7 to 10 p.m. to-
morrow in Lane Hall at which the
guests will sort some 10,000 "rail-
road" stubs in preparation for the
spring fund drive by WSSF.
In addition to the sorting, square
dancing, singing and the downing

of refreshments will be in order,
Wym Price, president of WSSF,
announced yesterday.

TASTY TURKEY-A roast young torn turkey was caught in this condition in the League's kitchen
late last night, preparing for his role in today's Thanksgiving Day festivities. The turkey has been

Truman ok's;
Successor Not
Nominated as Yet
Lilienthal, the foe of extereme se-
crecy on the atom, yesterday re-
signed as chairman and member
of the Atomic Energy Commission
-partly, he said, in order to speak
out "with a greater latitude."
President Truman accepted the
resignation, effective Dec. 31, with
the "utmost regret." He named
no successor foi the commission,
which holds powers almost u -
paralleled in democratic gvern
* * *
BUT MR. TRUMAN voiced con-
fidence that "should the exigencies
of the public interest demand".-
presumably, if a war crisis comes
-Lilienthal would stay his de-
In Congress, starting point of
most of the Lilienthal battles
that have splashed controversy
over the front pages, there was
regret at his departure and
praise for his career, but it was
not unanimous.
Now 50, Lilienthal sprang into
the public eye as chairman of the
Tennessee Valley Authority. On
Oct. 28, 1946, he was appointed
chairman of the Atomic Energy
Commission. He stayed there three
action-packed years, climaxed by
last summer's investigation Of - a
charge of "incredible mismanage-
ment" in AEC.
A MAJORITY of the Senate-
House Atomic Committee cleared
the agency of this accusation,
made by Sen. Hickenlooper (Rep.,
Iowa). Yet Mr. Truman may have
had it in mind in today's letter to
Lilienthal, released at the White
"You have indeed, through
almost 20 consecutive years of
public service in tough pioneer-
ing jobs--always under pressure
and often 'under destructive
criticism-earned the right to
retire to private life."
Lilienthal only last month urged
that this country "stop this sense-
less business of choking ourselves
by some of the extreme of secrecy
to which we have been driven."
* * *
HE URGED broader sharing of
atomic information with the Brit-
ish and Canadians, in the interest
of speedier atomic development.
His appeal did not check a new
drive in Congress for atomic se-
curity, spurred by the Russian
atomic explosions.
In his message to the White
House, a letter obviously talked
over with Mr. Truman in advance,
Lilienthal made it clear he is
quitting public service but not pub-
lic affairs.

SENATOR Hickenlooper, whose
charges against Lilienthal and
AEC included not only misman-

agement but security flaws and
the loss of a quantity of uranium
from a laboratory, commented last
"I look forward to a new stim-
ulation in our atomic program,"
Hickenlooper issued his state-
ment at Des Moines. He noted that
he called for Lilienthal's resigna-
tion last May, "in the best inter-
ests of our atomic program."
"At the outset I stated that I
had no personal animosity what-
soever toward Mr. Lilienthal," the
Senator said. "I have long been in
disagreement with his policies as
chairman of the Atomic Energy
Commission and I have been of the
sincere opinion that these policies
have not produced the vigorous
