Two Towns
Gov. Says Reds
Aided Conspiracy
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico-(P)-
National Guard troops smashed
yesterday at violently anti-United
States Nationalist rebels and drove
them out of two of their strong-
holds with planes and tanks.
Governor Luis Munoz Marin,

spiracy against democracy, help-
ed by the Communists," said
the whole insurrection movement
would be quelled in a day or two.

The rebels had seized control of
the two towns Monday after bomb-
ing police stations, killing some
policemen and setting many fires.
A police recount of casualties
said 32 persons had been killed
and 35 wounded in the rebellion.
The dead included 21 National-
ists, nine policemen, and one
National Guardsman.
By afternoon, guardsmen were
patroling the two towns, with the
last pockets of resistance appar-
ently wiped out. Jayuya looked as
though an earthquake had struck
it, with several blocks destroyed
and most of the other buildings in
the town of 1,500 charred by fire.

revolt was definitely connected

SL Budget Error
Sets OffInquiry
Misuse of 'U' of Philippines Fund
Leads to New Financial System
(EDITOR'S NOTE This is the second of two interpretative articles dealing
with the finances of the Student Legislature during the past two years.).
The Student Legislature's fumbling of the University of the Phil-
ippines Fund Drive to the tune of $1,078, described in yesterday's Daily
was not the only failure of student-donated funds to reach their Phil-
ippines' destination.
Even before the SL took over the drive in 1948, possibly $3,500,
raised through benefit shows and voluntary contributions never arriv-
ed at the Philippines.
* * * *
The Philippine Fund was started in 1946, when a group of students
suggested that the University adopt some foreign school as its "little
The suggestion was acceptable to the campus, and the Univer-
sity of the Philippines was seized upon as the most desirable
During the war, the Philippines institution, located in Manila, was
tragically destroyed.
THE ORIGINAL PLAN was to collect $50,000 from University
students over a period of years to help the Philippines back on its
The 1946 fund drive netted about $2,500. Books and periodical
subscriptions were bought and sent to the Philippines through
a charity dispensing organization in New York City.
The University received a plaque from Manila recognizing the
arrival of these items and thanking the students for their contribu-
THE $3,500 RAISED in 1947 was used to buy penicillin and other
sorely needed medical supplies. These supplies were duly shipped
to the New York charity organization.
The University of the Philippines sent no acknowledgement of
receipt; the New York organization sent no financial statement or
other proof of shipment, even after the University had repeatedly
requested them to do so.
« « * «
THUS, QUITE MYSTERIOUSLY, several thousand dollars worth
of medical supplies, paid for by the student body, never reached their
Philippine destination.
That is how things stood when the SL took over, raised $1,-
078 for the Fund, forgot about the Philippines and spent the
money. Now, two years later, the SL has finally paid off the debt
out of its Homecoming Dance profits.
With little done since 1948 in the way of raising more money
for the Philippine institution and with future plans for fund drives
non-existent, here the situation stands: $7,000 raised, $3,500 delivered,
and the $50,000 goal a faded illusion.
* * * * e
MEANWHILE, SL TREASURER Len Wilcox, '52, has introduced
a completely new financial system, to guarantee that the SL is never
again placed in such an embarrassing situation as the Philippine Fund
Drive foul-up placed it.
The new system includes:
1. An itemized budget for all prospective revenues for the year
incluled and all expected committee and other expenses totaled.
The budget, which was mimeographed and distributed to individ-
ual SL members, is the result of a month's consideration on the
part of Wilcox, Deans Erich A. Walter and Walter B. Re and the
SL cabinet. An additional four weeks was spent by the Legislature
itself studying the budget before final approval was given.
Previously, the treasurer merely gave an oral report to the SL,
and the Legislature proceeded to make and spend money solely on the
strength of the treasurer's recommendations.
2. Wilcox retains in his plan a rule previously observed which
makes approvalby the entire SL necessary for any expenditure of
$10 or more.
3. He adds the stipulation, however, that any expenditure, no mat-
ter how small, must be first approved by the chairman of the commit-
tee concerned and then by the treasurer before it can be made. /
4. Further, Wilcox plans to do his own bookkeeping, as a compli-
mentary effort to the official SL accounting which is done by the
Office of Student Affairs. In this way, Wilcox expects to be thor-
oughly acquainted with SL finances during the year.
* * *
THE PRESENT BUDGET, which was cut to the bone to enable
the SL to make up as much of the $1,523 deficit from last year as
possible, calls for expenditures of $2,021. Total income is calculated
at $3,202. Such a budget, if carried out completely, would leave the
SL with a deficit of $358 at the end of the academic year.
However, the unexepected success of the Homecoming Dance, the
financial solvency of Tug Week and the current success
of the SL's Cinema Guild should enable the Legislature to wipe out
its deficit completely and put it on a sound financial footing.

Austin Fights
To Retain Lie
NEW YORK-(P)-Warren R.
Austin fought yesterday to extend
Secretary-General Trygve Lie's
term for three years as a sign of
UN unity against aggression.
Andrei Y. Vishinsky countered
with a denunciation ofdLie as an
American "stooge" and declared
the Soviet Union would not recog-
nize Lie nor deal with him if he
is maintained in office.
The fight took place in the 60-

usually sits onthe rostrum during
sessions, left his seat when the
debate began. He spent the- re-

Chinese Reds,
Claim Tibet
By The Associated Press
NEW DELHI, India-Commu-
nist China informed the Indian
government that the Red invasion
of Tibet was a Chinese domestic
affair and of no concern to other
nations, an Indian spokesman said
China's answer to the Indian
protest was handed to Sardar Pan-
nikar, Indian ambassador in Peip-
ing yesterday, the spokesman add-
FULL DETAILS of the Chinese
note have not been disclosed as yet.
An Indian government spokes-
man refused to reveal the con-
tents of the Chinese reply.
The Chinese note held that Ti-
bet is an integral part of China
and notan independent state as
argued by most of the world.
The note brought back recol-
lections that China had previous-
ly claimed that the invasion of
Tibet is as justifiable as the inter-
vention by India in Hyderabad
affairs in 1948.
THE COMMUNIST answer came
just as the Red troops were re-
ported to be moving through se-
vere snowstorms and over dan-
gerous mountain roads toward the
Tibetan capital at Lhasa.
According to reports from
Gangtok, capital of the tiny
Indian border buffer state of
Sikkim, the Red march is being
made at a time when severe
winter conditions already exist.
The invaders are believed to be
within 200 miles of Lhasa, with
about 10 more days of marching
ahead of them before they reach
their objective.
The Communists are not only
meeting scant resistance, reports
said, but are receiving aid from
a number of exiled Tibetan nobles
who found sanctuary in China
and who hope to regain their old

operation of the United Nations,
Prof. Preston Slosson told a meet-

The UN has been able to act
against the aggression in Korea
only because of the lucky absence
of Russia from the Security Coun-

was made, Prof. Slosson said. But

tion, he said. '
The equal representation of
all nations, large and small hav-

Assembly eliminates it from be-
ing considered as a permanent
source of international control,

100 casualties, was made north-
west of Chongju, captured Mon-

On the right flank of the United
States 24th Division, where one
South Korean division was cut to
pieces last week, there were fresh
