YEARBOOK HIGHLIGHTS:
Two Freshmen Win'Ensian Contest,

s * * *

By the 'time the school year
ends Sue Trometer and Don Hill,
'54, will probably be shot from
every possible angle.
Winners of the Miss and Mr.
'Ensian contest yesterday, they
will be pictured throughout the '51
yearbook. 1
* *
EACH SECTION division page
will show them engaged in some
pertinent activity, according to
Paul Sage, '51, managing editor.
They will also be seen in various
cutout snaps in the book.
Chance ruled their selection.
Miss Trometer was the 100th
woman to pass the flag pole af-
tr 12:05 p.m. yesterday. Hill
passed through the front door
of the Union at the right time,
becoming the 100th man to do
so after 2 p.m.
The hours and locations were
set by the contest managers, Sage
and associate editors Dave Led-
dick and Sally Frost, '51.
It was the first' time that the
'Ensian has conducted such a con-
test. "We feel that the selection
was very lucky," Sage said. "We
wanted to find "typical" Michi-
gan students, preferably unknown
freshmen, and we succeeded on
both counts."

PHOTOGRAPHERS began to
shoot pictures of the models yes-
terday. But thy met with some
skepticism from Miss Trometer,-
who thought the whole thing was
a hoax, even after some publicity
shots had been taken.
"I had read about the con-
test but I thought that the win-
Jers had already been chosen,"
she said. "When I was ap-
proached this afternoon, I was
so 'surprised, I nearly fell over,
and I didn't know whether tof
'believe them or not," she said.
"But I finally was convinced
that it was true," she added.
Hill, a Sigma Chi pledge, could
not be reached for comment. He
was reportedly at the library,1
studying.

eshman Conference will start at

BOLSHEVIK BIRTHDAY:
U.S. Receives Sharp R
At Communist Celebration

Napal King
Replaced by
Young Heir
NEW DELHI, India - (A') - A
three-year-old grandson of King
Tribhuvana Biar Kikram of Nepal
has supplanted him on the throne
of that Himalayan nation ad-
joining Tibet, the Nepalese em-
bassy announced last night.
A palace revolution was implied.
* * *
THE KING, 44, took refuge at
the Indian Embassy in his capital
at Katmandu Monday. The Indian
Foreign Ministry said he wants to
came to India for medical treat-
ment and his government object-
ed.
Other sources reported the
king wants to get out of Nepal
because of a mounting demand
from his 6,000,000 subjects for
a change from the present au-
tocratic, feudal-type government
'to a democratic setup. The
sources minimized the influence
of Communist China's invasion
of Tibet on his decision.
The Nepalese embassy said the
grandson, left at the palace when
the king and other members of
his family sought asylum at the
Indian embassy, was installed as
king today on the throne "sud-
denly left vacant."
* * *,
THE PRIME MINISTER, Ma-
haraja Mohun Shamsher Jang
Bahadur Rana, tried twice this
week. to obtain an audience with
the king to ascertain the reasons
for his projected move to India,
described as "incomprehensible
and unconstitutional," the Em-
bassy statement said.

NO FINAL EXAMS FOR PARTY MEMBERS:
Communists Attenipt To Influence Students In India

By MARGARET THOMAS
"If you join the Communist
Party, you won't have to take
final examinations."
This is the type of promise
which the Communists in India
make to some college students
there, according to the Rev.
Blaize Levai, who spent three
years teaching at Voorhees College
of Vellore, South India.
* * *
MR. LEVAI, now minister of the
Willow Run Community Church,
saw the Communist tactics in ac-
tion during his stay in India. "On-
ly two schools in the southern
area, Voorhees College and the
University of Madura, were able
to withstand this Communist
threat," he said.
Voorhees College, which has a
student body of about 500, is

located some 80 miles from Ma-
dras. It is largely supported by
government grants but is also
partly mission-supported with.
funds from American churches.
While Mr. Levai was teaching at
Voorhees, the Communists came
into the school and stirred up the
students to strike. They refused
to come to class or to take final
exams.
"THE COMMUNISTS used force
to lock up some of the students to
keep them from going to class,"
he ,declared.
"We got the students to re-
turn to school by sending mime-
ographed letters to their par-
ents," he continued. "The Com-
munists were guarding the post
office, so we had to send the

letters special delivery through
a former student who lived in a
small outside village.
"The parents' response was such
that some of them even came to
the school and stood over the stu-
dents while they took the exams.
It would be a great loss -to the
parents if their children did not
take the finals because education
mean$ such a great deal to the
people in India."
* * * t
MR. LEVAI cited a vocational
school run by an American mis-
sion in Katpadi, near Vellore,
which was forced to close because
of Communist demands.
"We are living in 'Hell' near-
ly every day," the principal of
the school wrote. "When there
is a lull we are always anxious

MOSCOW - (P) - Soviet dis-
approval of United States inter-
vention in Korea was emphasized
sharply today in the celebration
of the 33rd anniversary of the Rus-
sian Revolution.
The Soviet armed forces were
ordered to increase their vigilance
and combat readiness.
Tanks, guns and troops of 'the
Moscow garrison paraded across,
Red Square in foggy, drizzly wea-
ther which grounded the Soviet
warplanes that usually do forma-
tion flying on such occasions.
* * W'
MARSHAL Semeon Budyenny, a
World War II hero and member
of the Presidium of the Supreme]
Soviet (parliament), declared ini
an address from the reviewing
stand atop Lenin's tomb that west-
ern "imperialists" are preparing
for a new war.
"The Anglo-American imper-
ialists have now passed from
Belmore Inn
To Be Razed
Old Belmore Inn, the former
University Hospital out-patient
residence, will be torn down this
week to allow for the construction
of thegKresge Medical Research
Building.
Built in 1893, the Inn, 1142 Ca-
therine St., is being razed to make
possible the extension of Forest
Ave., north from E. Ann St. to
Catherine St.,rUniversity officials
announced yesterday.
Under the University's plan,
Clark St., which runs parallel and
in close proximity to the proposed
Forest Ave. extension, would be
closed.
The Kresge structure, part of
the University's Medical Center,
will extend in an east-west direc-
tion from the western end of Uni-
versity Hospital to a point approx-
imately where Clark St. now runs.
University officials have not yet
announced plans for beginning
construction of the Kresge Build-
ing.

lest further violence break out.
Thefts are the order of the day.
In short, this is a place where no
Christian atmosphere can be
maintained."
Two different ideologies-Com-
munism and Christianity--are vy-
ing for position in India, Mr. Le-
vai explained. "They both promise
a new kind of life, but the Coi'
munists promise it 'here and now'
and they promise material things.
The Christians emphasize the
spiritual values," he added.,
The Communist idea has tre-
mendous appeal to the masses, Mr.
Levai noted. "For example, the
students feel that their purpose in
going to school is to get jobs to
be able to feed their families."
As one of his students put it,'
"Who can read Shelley o an
empty belly?"

preparations for aggression to
direct acts of aggressions, evi-
dence of which is the bandit in-
tervention of the United States
in Korea," he said.
"The Soviet people, together
with other freedom-loving peoples
of the world, brand the American
aggressors with shame and express
their sympathy with the Korean
people who are conducting a -he-
roic struggle for the freedom and
independence of their mother-
land."

SIMILAR EXPRESSIONS came
in orders of the day to the army
and navy. These were issued by
Marshal A. M. Vassilevsky, army
minister, and Adm. I. S. Yuma-
shev, naval minister.
"The American and British
imperialists are pursuing the
policy of instigating a new world
war," Yumashev said. "From the
threat of war they have gone
over to open aggression in Korea.
While the Russian press has
charged beforethat the United
States government intends to un-
leash a new war on the world, it
has never been said quite so au-
thoritatively or quite so repeated-
ly.
: Western diplomatic observers in
Moscow, therefore, are studying
the phrases carefully. They indi-
cate that they consider the words
significant and serious.
Prime Minister Stalin was not
mentioned in this dispatch as tak-
ing any public part in the obser-
vance of the Soviet national holi-
day. Presumably he is taking
fall vacation.

BEFORE YOU SMOKE THEM
..you can tell Chesterfields will smoke milder,
because tobaccos that smell milder smoke milder.
AFTER YOU SMOKE THEM
...you have no unpleasant after-taste.
WHILE YOU SMOKE THEM you get more pleasure than
any other cigarette can give' you - that's why millions of
smokers say: THEY SATISFY.
