Stubbornly Resist UN Advance
KOREA-(IP)-United States forces yesterday made their second
amphibious landing on North Korea's east coast int four days.
Coming ashore near Iwon, the invaders bolstered South. Korean
troops moving north toward the Manchurian- border'.
THE AMPHIBIOUS effort involved a landing force of 27,000 men,
most of them belonging to the U.S. Seventh Division. No opposition

was met by the landing force-.

Army Stos
Order Does Not
Affect Officers
niy announced yesterday it is mak-
ing no more mandatory calls for
enlisted reservists, except for 1,-
800 enlisted medical reservists and
,433 counter intelligence special-
However, all recall orders mail..
ed out to reservists up to, and in-
cluding yesterday, are still valid
and must be complied with. The
order applies only to enlisted re-
servists, not to reserve officers.
** *
AT THE SAME time, the Army
announced a point system to de-
termine which enlisted reservists
---among those on active duty_-
will be sent overseas. It called its
point plan a "service credit" sys-.
Under the plan, one service
credit will be given an enlisted
reservist for each year of his
age over 20, one for each year
of reserve service, two for each
combat award he has received,
four for each year of active fed-
eral service, four for each year
of overseas service and eight for
each department.
The reservist will receive credit
for less than a year of active fed-
eral service, or overseas service.
If he has had three months or a
major fraction of that time in
active federal service, he will re-
ceive one credit. One credit will
also be granted for each three
months or a majior fraction- of
that time spent in overseas serv-
listed reservists will be ordered ov-
erseas from among the ranks of
those on active duty, the Army
said it will choose first those with
the lowest scores within desired
military occupational specialities.
It is expected, the Army said,
that some men with the highest
service credit scores will be re-
lieved from active duty within
the next three months.
It said the credit scores announ-
ced for enlisted reservists do not
apply to enlisted men of the Na-
tional Guard who have been order-
ed into federal service with their

Headway e
Reported in
Europe's Defeiise
Under Discussion
By The Associated Press
treaty nations reported last night
they had reached the half-way
mark in a momentous conference
on problems involved in creating
a combined force to defend West-
ern Europe.
The defense ministers, who con-
stitute a defense committee of the
North Atlantic treaty organization,
did not disclose in a communique
issued last night what problems
had been settled. Another session
has been called for 9:30 a.m.
(EST) Monday.

REPORTS from those attending
the . historic session conflicted as
to whether the appointment of a
supreme commander for Western
Europe's forces had been decided
The quesftion of German rearma-
ment was discussed, they said, but
no conclusions were reached.
Meanwhile, a 45-minute con-
ference between President Tru-
man and Gen. Dwight D. Eisen-
hower yesterdy did nothing to
dispel a widely-held belief that
Eisenhower will head the new
European defense force.
"The President didn't put the
question to me," Eisenhower told
reporters. But he added that Mr.
Truman "always knows that I am
available for duty."
* * *
AND SO the door remained wide
open for the General to be named
Supreme Commander of Western
Forces in Europe onice the post Is
formally created.
Reporters asked Eisenhower
yesterday what difference it
would make politically if he ac-
cepted the Western powers' de.-
fense assignment.
Smiling, he replied: ''I have no
intention of doing in 1952 anything
different from what I am doing

ONE, TWO, THREE PULL-The Freshman tug-o-war team attempts to stave off its second dunk-
ing in the Huron River by the Sophomore team. The Sophomores won this tug, however, and with
their win in the first pull they copped the rah-rah battle, two tugs to one. A crowd of 200 lined the
banks of the river yesterday afternoon to watch this final activity of the 1950 Tug Week.

A spirited crew of- Minnesota Gophers,-playing .to win, tie, or just

hopes yesterday when they came from behind in the final minutes to
deadlock the highly-favored Maize and Blue squad, 7-7.

IT WAS MORE than a tie to Bernie Bierman's clan. Minnesota
came into the game with four losses behind them and Michigan was
installed as' a solid 20-point favorite.
But from the opening gun the 60,000 screaming fans realized
that odds meant nothing. And when George Hudak, who was the
Gopher offensive spark plug, hit Darrell Cochrane in the game's
final two minutes, they were sure of it.

Crown Prince Gustaf Adolf, old-

Before the tug began, the
Sophomores had some trouble
in finding 15 men for the team.
Two Sophomore women volun-

men took over.
More than 200 students watched
the tug.

DOWN AT THE river it was
noticed that some of the less con-
fident members of both teams
sported overshoes.
Some of the onlookers that
Ilined the banks cheered enthu-

quietly as the men were pulled
into the cold water.

his pants rolled up, was stationed

ForinMinister Andrei Vishinsky
yesterday ripped into the Ameri-
can-backed plan for atomic con-
trol and expressed doubt the Uni-
ted States would halt atomic bomb
production even if the United Na-.
tions adopt is proposal. ,
In a speech to the UN Assembly's
60-nation Political Committee last-
ing two hours and 1.5 minutes,
Vishinsky rejected once more the
majority-supported control plan.
He also charged the United
States with having started the
Korean war, with using Japanese
troops there, with trying to cut up
Germany, with backing Fascists
in high posts in Austria, and with
building a string of military bases
around the world.
* * *
IN A STINGING reply which
lasted only 16 minutes, Sen. Henry
Lodge (R-Mass.) told Vishinsky
he had wondered during recent
days whether the Russian minister
was frightened, because "a fright-.
ened man can be dangerous."
Sen. Lodge said "every child
knows" that growing American
military power is not meant for
offensive action against the So-
viet Union.
Firing back at Vishinsky's
charge that the United States ex-
penditures for -military purposes
are fifty times those of pre-World
War II days, Sen. Lodge told the
Committee that even if they were
far greater the United States mili-
tary power "would not have an
offensive capability against the
Soviet Union."

the chips were down the Gopher

S-P-I-R-I-T spelled the dif-
ference yesterday. The Gophers
were determined to save face for

that Skl-U-1Mah was far from
finished as a football power and
to break the heart of their old
nemesis. They had little in the
way of material except weight
and the will to win. Both paid
Indicative of the Minnesota vic-
tory fervor was the great back to
the wall stand that ate up almost
all of the third quarter. The Gop-
hers threw back two Wolverine
drives in that space,- one at the
three yard line, the other at the
10. But Don Dufek scored from
the two on the third march.

THEN THE home team went on
to prove their right to a tie In the
final stanza. After their first stab
was blunted on the Michigan seven
yard line with less than seven min-
utes to play, the Gophers doggedly
drove 31 yards in 11 plays to knot
the score. -
Captain Dave Skrien, who was
defensive giant all day and took
over the offensive fullback du-
ties much of the second half,
converted and it was all over but
the shouting-Minnesota ren-
