UN Rebuffs
Act to Delay
SpainDebate
Guatemala. Join
Soviet Bloc Vote
LAKE SUCCESS - (P) - Th
UN special political committee yes
terday rebuffed a Soviet bloc mov
to delay action on a resolutioi
partly removing UN bars agains
Franco Spain.
Guatemala, one of the Lati
American members of the UN
joined the five Russian bloc coun
tries in support of a Polish motio
to postpone further debate o
Franco Spain until Monday. Thir
ty-four countries were against an
six abstained.
THE UNITED STATES is back
* ing an 8-power resolution whic
would permit UN members to sen
back to Madrid their top ambas
sadors and ministers and woul
open the way for Generalissim
Franco to join specialized agencie
of the UN.
The resolution has the effect
r of revoking an Assembly resolu-
tion of 1946 on ambassadors and
specialized agencies but it does
not touch another Assembly res-
olution, approved a the first
UN meeting in London in 1946,
barring Franco Spain from UN
membership.
Bolivia, Costa Rica, the Domini.
can Republic, El Salvador, Hon
duras, Nicaragua, the Philippine
and Peru introduced the resolu-
tion and backed it strongly i
opening debate yesterday.
* * *
CHILE, meanwhile, sounded a
call in the 60-nation politica
committee for the UN to condemn
any iron curtain anywhere in th
' world that stands against peace
and furthering of information
Chile obviously was hitting di
rectly at the Soviet Union.
Jacobo Schaulsohn of Chile
introduced the proposal as an
amendment to a six-country
resolution which would define
aggression as the gravest crime
against humanity. Schaulsohn
proposed that the Assembly
stand out for "the free exchange
of information and ideas as one
of the bases of good neighborly
relations between peoples."
* His proposal defined as propa-
ganda against peace any measure
which tends to isolate a people
from contact with the outside
world, "preventing the press, ra-
dio, andother media of communi-
cation from reporting internation-
al events, hampering knowledge
and preventing understanding be-
tween" peoples.
The Chilean proposal and the
six-country resolution are counter-
proposals to a resolution by Rus-
sia's Andrei Y. Vishinsky calling
*for a Big Five peace pact, a re-
duction of armed forces of the
Big Five by one-third, a ban on
atomic weapons and designation
of the first nation to use the
atomic weapon as a war criminal.
Swedish KinO
Critically Ill
STOCKHOLM-(P)-King Gus-
taf V, Sweden's 92-year-old mon-
arch lay critically ill last night in
Drottningholm Palace just out-
side Stockholm.
His heart appeared to be weak-
*ening.

Fatigue gripped the tall, gaunt
man who amazed the world by
roaming over the tennis- courts
until he was 88, hunting until he
was 91 and reluctantly relaxing
only when be had to give in to a
wheelchair or a pack saddle in the
arms of attendants.
A bulletin issued at noon by Dr.
Halmar Casserman, the King's
physician, and two specialists, said
coughing and a marked difficulty
in breathing had considerably af-
fected the action of his heart. The
pulse was rather frequent and
sometimes fluttering.+

Speakers Prepare, Crowd
For Annua1 Tug-O War

By SID KLAUS
An enthusiastic crowd of 1500
students attended the opening of
the 1950 Tug Week last night at
Hill Auditorium to hear Sopho-
more and Freshman pep speakers
vow that their team would "drag
those other guys right into the
Huron" in today's tug-o-war.
At 1:30 p.m. today the. Soph-
Frosh tug-o-war will be held across
the Huron River at the foot of

Glen. Those going to the annual
rah-rah battle will meet on the
Mall near the League, and then
parade down to the river lead by
the Sigma Phi Epsilon band.
. s a
DAN BURLINGAME, '53, tug-o-
war organizer, called for a large
rooting section for both classes.
"There are still a few places open
on both teams for those men who
want to get in on the pull," he
added.
Judging the big event will be
Bill Stapp, '51, president of the
'M' Club. The winner of the tug
will be decided by the best two
out of three pulls. Burlingame
guaranteed that the tug will be
over before the start of today's
Michigan-Minnesota game.

Act Faces
Court Test*
Suit Hits Proviso
On Registration
WASHINGTON-MP)-A suit de-
signed to enjoin and nullify the
new internal security act was filed
in United States District court
here yesterday.
Brought in the names of 135 in-
dividuals, the action attacks the
whole law as unconstitutional.
* * *
STHE CHIEF complaint is aimed
at the requitement that organiza-
tions regarded by the Attorney
General as Communist must re-
gister and disclose financial back-
ing.
One hundred and seven of the
plaintiffgroupsought to file
the action here last Monday,
but the court refused to accept
it then because street addresses
of the plaintiffs were not in-
cluded in the papers offered.
The suit was accepted yesterday
with the list of plaintiffs en-
larged to 135 persons in 32
states.
Among those listed as joining
in the action were Elizabeth Gur-
ley Flynn, executive committee-
woman for the Communist party;:
Fred W. Stover, president of the
Iowa Farmers' Union; and Harold
Christoffel, former Milwaukee
labor leader who is under a 2 to 6
year sentence for perjury based
on a denial before a House com-
mittee that he had any Communist
affiliation.
THE ATTORNEYS did not ask
any immediate restraining order
against the act, but said a prompt
preliminary hearing will be sought
to get a temporary injunction
against enforcement procedures
while the constitutional question
is being reviewed by a three-judge1
court establishment of such a
court to hear the case was for-
mally requested.
Named as defendants are At-1
torney General McGrath, William
E. Foley, Chief of the Justice De-
partment's Internal Security Di-'
vision, and all five members of the
new subversive activities control1
board headed by Seth W. Richard-1

Challenges Act
DETROIT-(lP)-The internalF
security act under which a score
of suspected communist aliens1
have been jailed this week was
challenged yesterday by Henry
Podolski, one of those jailed and {
a self-styled "left-wing socialist."r
Podolski was arrested Mondayt
on orders of Attorney General J.
Howard McGrath and is seeking a
writ of habeas corpus that would
permit him liberty under bond.
United States District Judge
Arthur. A. Kocinski did not indi-
cate when he would rule on Podol-
ski's challenge of the internal se-
curity act.
Podolski says he is willing toI
leave the country if given freedomt
to make preparations. The govern-s
ment insists those against whomf
deportation proceedings are pend-
ing cannot leave of their own voli-
tion. Podolski, a native of Poland,
is accused of being a Communistr

UN Troops Meet Stiffening
Resistance Near Manchuria

Telephone
Employes
Call Strike
WASHINGTbN - (P) - The
CIO-Communications Workers of
America last night called a strike
of Western Electric employes in
43 states and every large city
across the nation at 6 a.m., Nov. 9.
About 16,685 workers will be in-
volved but pickets will be thrown
around telephone exchanges in ev-
ery sizeable town, union president
Joseph A. Beirne said.
THE PARENT CWA union, rep-
resenting 300,000 workers in the
Bell Telephone system, will not
cross picket lines, Beirne said.
The strike will directly involve
10,000 workers in the Western
Electric installation department
in all states except Maine, Ver-
mont, New Hampshire, Massa-
chusetts and Rhode Island; 6,000
distributing house employees in
28 major cities scattered through-
28 m a j o r cities scattered
throughout the nation; and 685
manufacturing workers in Ha-
verhill, Mass.
Beirne said that efforts would
be made between now and the
strike deadline to reach satisfac-
tory settlements . with Western
Electric company. He said the in-
ternational union had taken com-
plete charge of the negotiating ses-
sions.
The strike call results from a
dispute over wage increases de-
manded by the union. It seeks
what it calls "substantial" in-
creases, without naming a figure.

At last night's Tug Week kick-
off, Freshmen, Sophomores, and
a host of upper classmen heard
Tug Week officially proclaimed by
King Tug. The Sophomores anq
Freshmen then took over for their
pep rallies.
Jay Mills, '53, was in charge of
the freshman rally, Joe Teifer, '52,
handled the show for the sopho-
mores. The rally included pep
talks, cheers and songs. The Chi-
cago House Band provided the rah-
rah music.
Following the rally, "Soph Sa-
tire" was presented. The plot of
the musical revolved around the
romantic capers of a couple of
Michigan freshmen.
Fran Hanslovsky was director of
the "Satire."

Study Asked
OUn Reserves
WASHINGTON - (A') - Secre-
tary of Defense Marshall yesterday
ordered a policy study to take "un-
certainties and inequities" out of
the reserve systems of the armed
forces.
Naming an eight-man commit-
tee to work out a long range plan,
Marshall said he wanted a strong
reserve operated with as little in-
terruption as possible to the na-
tion and the normal life of the
individual reservist.
The group, made up of civilians
and regular and reserve officers,
will recommend policies looking to
the future. This follows steps or-
dered by Marshall this week to
deal with an immediate situation
governing recall of reservists to
active duty.
Marshall told all four services to
begin allowing 30 days notice be-
fore a man must report, and to in-
stall systems which would let men
know when they are not on cur-
rent recall lists thus giving them
a breathing spell of several
months.
Ikse' Prepared
To Take Post
WASHINGTON-(R)'-General
Dwight D. Eisenhower said yes-
terday that if he is named as
supreme commander of allied
forces in Europe, "I am a soldier
and will do as I am told to do."
And on the eve of a meeting of
defense ministers of the 12-nation
North Atlantic Alliance, there
was strong support for Eisen-
hower. The Canadian defense
minister said that no better choice
could be made.
Eisenhower, victorious com-
mander of allied troops in West-
ern Europe during World War II,
evidently was willing to assume
the new responsibility.
The five-star general is slated
to confer with Army authorities
and President Truman this week-
end, and it appeared that formal
announcement of his selection
may be forthcoming soon.
However, an American spokes-
man denied a published report
that North Atlantic Military chiefs
voted unanimously for Eisenhow-

ly that Chinese Communist troops,'
estimated variously from 30,000 to
60,000, had bolstered -the Koreani
Red lines as United Nations forces
drew closer to the Manchurian
border,

A UNITED STATES Eighth Ar-
my spokesman in Seoul said the
South Korean (ROK) First Divi-
sion had beaten back an attack
by a Communist force composed
of "Chinese and North Korean ele-
ments" 50 miles south of the bor-
der near Unsan.
Whether the Chinese had en-
tered the fight in overt, organiz-
ed fashion was still to be deter-
mined.
At least some Chinese were
fighting against the Allied ad-
vance. An American adviser with
the South Korean First Division
said 62 dead Chinese were count-
ed on a battlefield near Unsan in
northwestern Korea yesterday. He
did not say how they were identi-
fied as Chinese.
THE ANSWER to the presence
of Chinese in the Communist ranks
might be found in the statement of
a Chinese soldier captured Thurs-
day near Unsan.
The Chinese, who said he was
Pvt. Li Shin-Man, 34, told inter-
regators that he and other Chi-
nese troops sent into Korea to help
the North Korean Reds in the
past two weeks were not "old Com-
munists," but were former Chinese
Nationalist soldiers.
Li told American questioners
that he understood 40,000 Chinese
troops had been sent into Korea
in the past two weeks and that
he himself entered nine days ago.
"We were just following orders,"
he said. He hinted that most Chi-
nese did not relish the assignment.
and were not fighting with en-.
thusiasm.

West Coast;

PORTLAND, Ore.--' (R) - The
third gale of the week swooped in
from the Pacific Ocean last night
to batter the debris-laden west
coast, taking two lives.
Hard on the heels of winds that
whipped up to 72 miles an hour.
the third storm front hit the coast
with gusts up to 66 miles an hour
and moved inland.
Scores more trees toppled onto
already littered highways. The
weather bureau warned that high
winds would continue through this
afternoon.
* * *.
NO FURTHER storm was in
sight after that but the weather
bureau warned that conditions at
sea were such that still a fourth
storm could soon form,
Hundreds of trees crashed al-
most everywhere in the Far
West. Telephone lines were
down. Power failed for periods
up to many hours. Windows
shattered and roofs flew from
small buildings as the wind rak-
ed over a thousand-mile front
at speeds up to 72 miles an hour.
A spectacular fire bolt raced
through a lumber mill at Cottage
Grove, Ore., Thursday night when
rain or a power surge blew out the
transformer. The mill went up in
flames and the oWner said loss
was $600,000 to $700,000.
A RAILROAD roundhouse Y'oof
fell in on workers, injuring eight
on the San Francisco Peninsula.
Bricks were peeled from a

Spokane's water power company
reported it the most troublesome
storm in its history. A 160-man
force went after-power line breaks.

Special to The Daily
MINNEAPOLIS - Here in the
northland, they grow everything
big-even the Minnesota football
team.
The tall firs and lofty pines
which surround Minneapolis are
strangely indicative of the task
facing Michigan's souped-up foot-
ball team this afternoon when
they take on Bernie Bierman's
thus far ineffective, but still hulk-
ing Gophers, starting at 1:30. (2:30
p.m. Ann Arbor time)

FIELDING THE fastest team in
several season's, Bennie Ooster-
baan's charges assume the wood-
cutter role that Ohio State vacat-
ed last week-cutting down the
ponderous, but almost stationary,
'Minnesota line,
At stake in today's 41st meet-
ing of the two Universities is
the Little Brown Jug, one of
football's traditional landmarks.
The Wolverines have taken the
symbolic vessel 25 times with
Minnesota having possession on
13 occasions. But the Jug has
rested in the Michigan Athletic
Administration Building's tro-
phy room for seven uninterrupt-
ed years.
Chances that the Michigan-
Minnesota momento will change
addresses appear slim since the
Northlanders are fielding their
worst team in a decade. Ski-U-
Mah is seeking its first victory of
the season today after four losses.
Most humiliating was a 48-0 past-
ing meted out by Ohio State's
Buckeyes last week.
* * *
THE WOLVERINE cup of over-
confidence is far from running
over, however. In fact, it's nearly
empty.
Size alone makes the Gopher
a tough customer on any given
Saturday. Nearly a ton of beef
will face the Wolverines across
the line when action starts-
1,545 pounds to be exact, or 221
pounds per man. So far, this sep-
tet has permitted 30 points per
game, but sheer weight can be
stubborn when arousedl especial-

On Eve of Tilt
Special to The Daily
MINNEAPOLIS - If it weren't
for several hardy Michigan fans,
it would never be known that the
ancient argument for the "little
brown jug" will be renewed here
this afternoon.
Wolverine partisans were greet-
ed last night by small groups of
their fellow-Michiganders parad-
ing up and down Nicollet Ave.
boasting their loyalty by loudly
harmonizing on "The Victors."
ALUMNI, especially the old-
timers, seemed a trifle sad that

the mighty spirit that once was a
part of this famous rivalry was no
more. But they were confident
that the Wolverines would main-.
tain possession of the pottery.
Minnesota alumni were a pes-
simistic lot, expecting the worst.
The Michigan team arrived here
early yesterday afternoon and ran
through limbering-up drills. It
was a far cry from the secret ses-
sion the team holds at Ann Arbor.
Then 1000 students and several of
the Gopher coaches were on hand
to observe the last minute prep-
'arations.

CAREER PLAN VETOED:
Coeds Attack Anti-Maternal Stand

By WENDY OWEN
Motherhood is a top-notch job,
according to University coeds.
They opposed researchist Ther-
ese Benedek, who claimed that
'women who are only mothers and
do not have a career have a guilt
complex."

Harriet Silep, '51, partly upheld
psychologist Benedek's theory by
agreeing that there was a pull
now for women to have a wider
range of interests.
"But this isn't necessarily for,
a career," she claimed.
