Action Plan
Gets Formal
UN Approval
Riussia Included
In Peace Group
LAKE SUCCESS - (P) - The
U.N. Political Committee yester-
day stamped its formal approval
on a plan for swift General As-
sembly action against aggression
It also put Russia on a trouble-
shooting Peace Observation group
in a rare display of big power har-
mony.
THE FINAL roll-call vote on the
anti-aggression program first laid
down by Secretary of State Dean
Acheson was 50 to 5. The Russian
bloc opposed it, although Soviet
Foreign Minister Andrei Y. Vi-
shinsky succeeded in getting Rus-
sia and Czechoslovakia on the
peace commission. India, Syria
and Argentina abstained.
The United States, France,
Britain, China, Colombia, In-
dia, Iraq, Israel, New Zealand,
Sweden Pakistan and Uraguay
were placed on the 14-member
Peace Observation Commission
with the two Russian bloc
countries.
Here is what the committee
resolution would do:
1. Permit th 60-nation Gen-
eral Assembly to convene within
24 hours if the Security Council
pis blocked by a veto from acting
in the event of a threat to the
peace or aggression.
2. Establish the Peace Obser-
vation Commission which may ob-
serve and report on the situation
in any area where there is inter-
national tension. Dulles pointed
out the U.S. had no objection to
the Russians joining this group
since it has no veto and the Rus-
sians cannot impose their will.
3. Recommend that each U.N.
member maintain within its na-
tional armed forces elements so
trained, equipped and organized
that they can be made available
promptly for service as U.N. units
upon recommendation of the Se-
curity Council or the General As-
sembly,
4. Establish a collective mea-
sures committee of 14 members to
study methods which might be
used to maintain and strengthen
peace and security. The commit-
tee named Australia, Belgium,
Brazil, Burma, Canada, Egypt,
France, Mexico, the Philippines,
Turkey, Britain, Venezuela and
Yugoslavia on that group. No Rus-
sian bloc country was proposed
and the Russians in fact opposed
its creation.
5. Urge U.N. members to re-
spect fully and stimulate respect
for human rights and funda-
i mental freedoms, especially to
achieve economic stability and so-
cial progress through development
of underdeveloped areas.
Senators Hear
How Reds Got
4 Vital U.S. Oil
WASHINGTON - (P) -- In-'
vestgating senators heard testi-
mony yesterday which left Sena-
tor O'Conor (D-Md) convinced
that "laxity" permitted half a mil-
lion gallons of war-vital Ameri-
can engine oil to reach Red China

after fighting began in Korea.
They got three official sugges-
tions on the nature of the leak:
1. A legalistic loophole-the fact.
that the oil was technically "in
transit," out of this country when
an embargo on such shipmonts
went on. It was stored in Japan
and transhipped later.
2. Inadvertence, meaning some-
srbody failed by oversight.
3. Conflict of jurisdiction, per-
haps between authorities here and
in Japan.
* NONE OF THAT satisfied O'Co-
or, chairman of the Commerce
subcommittee investigating reports
of strategic items shipped to the
Korean Communists' northern
neighbors and sympathizers.
"I won't use the word 'violation'
yet," O'Conor told reporters after
the hearing recessed, "but theie
is no question that 13,000 drums
of oil have been sent to Commu-
nist China since early June, l1 500
of them since the Korean crisis.

'Stacy Now
Repudiates
Confessions
Cleared of Ward
Fire Suspicion
Robert H. Stacy, former Univer-
sity teaching fellow who admitted
last week to setting the Haven
Hall fire, touching off three small-
er blazes and snatching 16 purses,
has repudiated all his confessions,
according to his attorney, Leonard
H. Young.
"Stacy told me that he didn't
have anything to do with any of
the crimes," Young said yesterday.
"He was confused when he
made the confessions."
MEANWHILE, late yesterday af-
ternoon, Young announced that
Stacy had been absolved of respon-
sibility for the recent $250,000
Montgomery Ward fire. He said
that police had filed to establish
any link between Stacy and the
Oct. 10 blaze.
The attorney said that all con-
fessions made by Stacy were
made only to impress his former
girl friend, Zelda Clarkson. "Sta-
cy realizes now the impact of
his 'confessions,' and wants to
straighten things out," Young
said.
He said that he had filed a pe-
tition in circuit court to have the
case returned to municipal court
for a preliminary hearing. Stacy
was charged with arson after h
formally confessed to Prosecutor
Douglas K. Reading on Oct. 11
that he set the huge Haven Hall.
blaze.
Stacy waived examination in the
lower court the next day, and was
bound over to the circuit court
for trial on the arson charge.
YOUNG SAID that Stacy was
"confused" at the time of his first
court appearance and had not been
represented by an attorney. The
court later appointed Young to be
Stacy's' attorney.
Circuit Judge James R. Breakey
may rule on the petition to have
Stacy returned to the municipal
court this afternoon.

Halt Asked
By Hoover
NEW YORK - (A) - Former
President Herbert Hoover said yes-
terday the United States should
provide no more money or arms
for the defense of Western Europe
"until a defnitely unified :,nd suf-
ficient European army is in sight."
Western Europe must provide
most of its own defenses against
Communism, Hoover said, warn-
ing that the U.S. cannot indefi-
nitely stand the economic drain
of bolsterng everywhere against
Russia.
HE ASKED the democratic na-
tions of the world to "specify what
they will join with and when" in
a united military and economic
front against Communism.
"We should say at once that
the U.S., with all its resources,
cannot long endure the present
drain on our economy," he said.
"If we do not find real military
action of powerful strength in
Western Europe; if there is no def-
inite and effective mobilization of
the United Nations so as to take
up the major burden of ther de-
fenses, then we had better recon-
sider our whole relation to the
problem.

payroll. The picket line was then
removed andi the hauling and con-
struction crews ordered back to
work this morning.
Although the strike was ini-
tiated by employes of the wreck-
ing company, construction work-
ers also refused to cross the
picket line.
A lone picketer stood by from 11
a.m. until the agreement was
reached.
THE UNIVERSITY will prob-
ably not suffer a loss if it pays the
wages owed, according to one
University official. He explained
that the Shartzer Co. had bid
$13,000 lower than any other Offer
submitted.
Meanwhile, the whereabouts of
G. H. Shartzer were unknown. A
University spokesman stated that
another company, would be con-
tracted for the remainder of the
hauling operations.
On Sept. 16 Shartzer *did not
appear to .answer a summons is-
sued on behalf of an Ohio equip-
ment company, according to Wil-
liam M. Laird, attorney represent-
ing the company.

New Storm
Nears Coast
Of Florida
MIAMI, Fla.-(P)-A new storm
began to develop in the Gulf of
Mexico yesterday while Florida
took another look at damage cre-
ated by Wednesday's hurricane
and revised loss estimates upwards
to $15,000,000.
The new comer, not yet a full
hurricane but growing hourly,
moved eastward toward the Fori-
da coast at about six to 10 miles
per hour. It is expected to curve
northeastward.
PEAK WINDS were estimated at
between 55 to 70 rnles pert hour
against hurricane force of 75 miles
or higher. The storm is expected
to increase in size as it moves.
The new blow-about 240 miles
south of the Louisiana coast-is a
late-born twin of the 125-mile an
hour devastator that battered
south Florida before whirling up
the center of the peninsula.
New storm warnings went up
from Corpus Christi, Texas, to
Morgan City, La., for the newborn
disturbance.
s * m
THE OLD storm is dying out
over northern Alabama. In its
death throes it delivered vicious
swipes at north Floridarand Geor-s
gia beaches and inland afeas.
In Jamaica, officials said yes-
terday the old hurricane left six
dead on the island.
On the U.S. mainland it killed
three persons, injured 65, left 300
families homeless, destroyed 128
homes, damaged 13,464 residences
and smashed so many thousands
of windows that a glass shortage
was reported.
Latest estimates of Florida's
$15,000,000 damage toll shaped up
this way: Miami-Mami Beach and
surrounding area $11,000,000; oth-
er parts of the state, $2,000,000,
and crop losses $2,000,000.

Attack Russia,
BentleyUrges
"The United States should at-
tack Russia before she attacks us,"
Alvin M. Bentley told the Young
Republicans last night.
Bentley, who resigned from the
diplomatic service of the State
Department in May, asserted that
inasmuch as Russia is headed for
war, we should not sit by and wait
for her to make the first move.
The ex-State Department man
criticized the administration plan
to contain the Russians for the
next 25 years. "Russia is out to
bleed us white," he warned.
"It is imperative that we keep
troops over in Germany, and se-
cure the full support of the Atlan-
tic Pact nations," he said.
Bentley also criticized the trend
toward socialism in this country,
declaring that it was the next step
to Communism.

SEOUL, Korea - () - United
Nations troops mopped up yester-
day inside Pyongyang against the
last Reds still resisting with small
arms and mortars in the swiftly-
overrun former North Korean cap-
ital.
A U.S. Eighth Army spokesman
said Pyongyang, the bulk of which
was occupied yesterday, has not

ed. But he added: "It is more in
the nature of a cleanup operation.

UN FIGHTER PLANES, striking
north at the retreating Commu-
nist remnants, operated from the
former Communist air base.at the
northeast edge of Pyongyang. The
base was captured yesterday by
South Korean troops.
A U.S. Eighth Armyr spokes-
man said 6,022 Reds have been
captured in the past 24 hours.
The war's total bag exceeds 75,-
000.
The avenue of retreat for Reds
still fighting in the city was block-
ed by the entry of the South Ko-
rean Seventh Division from the
north.

COMPLETE conquest of the for-
mer Communist control point was
believed to be only a matter of

American and Korean Repub-

There was not enough Red

COOL TO MANAGED LOVERS' LANE:
Supervised Woo Plan Gets Cold Shoulder Here

By VERNON EMERSON
Supervised woo pitching got a
cool reception here yesterday.
Women students wouldn't go
for a' University established "lov-
ers' paradise" even if it guaran-

said.
She termed "nutty" a University

have reasonably supervised, well

school.

Wisconsin idea is good.
The plan, proposed by Prof.
Howard B. Gill to a group of
Wisconsin housemothers, con-
demned as disgusting "the idea
of police lying in wait to pounce
on the intimicies of students."
Prof. Gill called for "a lovers
paradise with comfortable bench-
es, and good lighting where re-
sponsible and mature students
could do a bit of romancing in pri-
vate - with reasonablei super-
vision."
Dean Robertson said such an

FULL APPROVAL was given
the idea of benched areas by
James Hood, '51E.
"Now ihe only place you can
go is to some over-lighted house
steps," he complained.
Bernie Kahn, '52, joined Hood
in condemning.the limited facili-
ties for courtship here. Kahn said
that he couldn't see any objection
to setting up places for students to
conduct their love-making in pri-
vate.
BUT MANY students wondered

"responsible and mature" stu-

George Allen, '52, expressed
doubt that students would keep
their courtship fully in control
anyway.
"Besides I don't think students
are spied on by police too much.
Of course I may be an exception;
my girl lives in a private home."
All in all students and faculty
members were skeptical of super-
vised courting. But two psycholo-

the whole problem.
