Chinese Reds Hit
In North Korea
SEOUL -(P)- U.S. Superforts
smashed the Chinese Communists'
main border base in northwest Ko-
rea yesterday with a massive at-
tack of fire and demolition bombs.
Pilots said the strike by 80 U.S.
B-29s destroyed about 90 per cent
of Sinuiju, Korean city of 100,000
across the Yalu river from Antung,

Allied foot soldiers punched out
short gains all along the front.
Red forces contiued an unex-
pected pullback from the north-

heavy traffic-apparently more
men and supplies-was rolling
across Manchuria toward Korea.
General MacArthur's Tokyo
headquarters ordered a temporary
news blackout on developments be-

THE UN Commander's Intelli-
gence Officers said they were un-
able to answer questions whether
the Chinese and Korean Reds were
planning an attack, consolidating
their lines or preparing a series of
delaying actions.
A. U.S. Eighth Army spokesman
said Red Chinese troops may be
avoiding a fight in North Korea
pending high level diplomatic
moves which would affect the
course of the Korean war.
Both in the Northwest, where
they face the Eighth Army, and in
the Northeast where the U.S. 10th
Corps is located, the Communists
have been pulling back.
Airliner Falls
In Montana;22
Sent to Death
PUTTE, Mont.-(R)-The bright
red tail of a Northwest Airliner
guided searchers yesterday to the
wreckage of the plane which car-
ried 22 persons to swift death on
the backbone of the Continental
Eight of the victims were wom-
en, including two stewardesses,
and two were children. The plane
disappeared on a westward flight
and ground parties reached the
wreckage yesterday morning.
The tail was the only part of
the twin-engined Martin 202 in-
tact among huge boulders just
below the top of the divide, seven
miles east of here.
The rest of the burned plane
was scattered at the head of Mo-
desto canyon which cuts up the
east slope of the divide.
The plane struck the north wall
of Homestake Pass, which aircraft
usually fly through, at an altitude
of about 8,500 feet.
The wreckage was discovered
almost exactly 24 hours after pilot
Lloyd Lampman radioed from over
Whitehall, southeast of here, that
he was starting his instrument let-
down into the mile-high mining
city airport.

GridPools Run
By 'U' Students
Campus Authorities, Police Deny
Any Knowledge of Gambling Set Up
(EDITOR'S NOTE-This is the first of a series of interpretive articles
dealing with student-run football pools here on campus.)
Unnoticed by both city and University officials studbnt-run foot-
ball pools have taken firm root on campus this fall.
Because the pools are largely student-run locally, it is hard to get
definite facts on their operations, since those who know the facts
are unwilling to "squeal" on their friends. However, it is probable that:
1. There are at least two different pools and that they come from
national syndicates.
2. The take of the pools each week is probably somewhere between
$1500 and $2000 a week.
3. The campus pool organizations, right up to the top, are student-
run, with the heads acting as the contacts with the national organiza-
At least one of the top student bookies-who said he had retired
because he wasn't clearing enough for the risk involved-denied the
national tieup. He went on to say, he'd heard that his rival had lost
$1,000 the week before on a particularly easy card.
He explained his competitor's ability to pay off by saying he prob-
ably had built up enough reserves in the earlier part of the season. No
one, by the way, has accused any of the operators of welching.
It is probable, however, that such a loss could not be met with-
out outside aid. Adding strength to the theory of outside tieups is
the fact that the cards are not printed in Ann Arbor but are flown
in each week.
Just who the local agents are tied in with is an even murkier
subject than their local operations. A student who has studied the
operations as closely as anyone on the outside could, thinks that one
of the cards comes out of St. Louis while thelother originates in Chi-
But these aren't the only possibilities. Names bandied about in
campus rumors on the subject have included the Capone Gang and
nationally known "financier" Frankie Costello.
But wherever they come from, legally they should not be in Ann
Arbor. City ordinance 121-An Ordinance Relative To Disorderly Per-
sons and Conduct-says in Section 6, that "No person shall keep,
carry on or maintain or aid in keeping, carrying on or maintaining any
lottery, policy, pool, bucket shop or any like scheme."
YET when Capt. Albert Heisel of the Ann Arbor Police was
asked about the situation, he replied shortly, "We don't know any-
thing about it."
Heisel heads the department's Plainclothes Division which is
supposed to check gambling in the town.
However, Heisel did add, "If you find anything out, we'd like to
know about it."
University administrgtors, when queried on the problem, were
equally in the dark. Dean of Students Erich A. Walter, who heads the
Office of Student Affairs, which is entrusted with maintaining student
discipline, knew nothing of the gambling activities, but declared, "We
obviously disapprove"
He went on to say that the policy followed in previous affairs of
this kind was for the local police to apprehend the offenders and then
turn them over to the University for punishment or, if the offense was
more serious, to have them tried in the regular courts.

By The Associated Press
Nations Security Council yester-

Austin touched, off fireworks
with blistering charges against
Red China based on a special re-
port from Gen. Douglas Mac-

Communists have put 30,000

be more. He called for the Coun-
cil to demand a halt to this aid,
for withdrawal of the Commun-
ist Chinese forces and for stop-

EXPLAINING the Board's posi-
tion, Jim Mitchell, '51E, student
member of the Board, said, "We
awarded the privilege to the SL
to make possible the satisfaction
of student desire to get the less
expensive programs.".
"It is the Board's intent that
ten cent programs, and only ten
cent programs, should be sold on
the University's property," Mit-
chell emphasized.

WHY WAS this special permis-
sion given the SL for only the
remainder of this football season?
Don McEwen, '52, the other stu-
dent board member explained:
"If the SL is not successful in
its two-game venture this fall,
the Board wants to be able to
arrange for a different system, in
order to bring the cheaper pro-
grams to students."

In refusing to concede defeat,
Williams said he owed it to the
900,000rodd voters who stood with
him, to await for an official count.
Williams carried 10 of the state's
83 counties, and held up supris-
ingly well in many normally Re-
publican areas. In eight counties
he came close, including such us-
ual G.O.P. strong points.
OF THE precincts still missing,
none were in populous Wayne
County where Democratic strength
lay heaviest.
Indications were that Kelly1
cannot fail to pick up a scattered
few more votes than Williams.
The entire Republican state tic-
ket was swept into office and the
voters, with fine impartially, re-
fused to break the ratio between
Republican and Democratic rep-
resentatives in Congress.
MICHIGAN elected its first Con-

Labor Mediation Board. .
Four public ballot questionsk
swept strongly to victory. These
included constitutional amend-
ments to outlaw subversive activi-
ty, float a $65,000,000 bond issue to
finance new mental and tubercu-
losis hospitals and change the vot-
er residence requirement and a re-
ferendum to legalize the hale of

Points to Friction

tween the White House and the
Capitol appeared to be one sure
result of the off-year Congression-
al elections as Republicans ut the
Democratic majority in both
houses of Congress.
In the Senate, the Democrats
hold a two-man majority with a
tally of 49 Democrats and 47 Re-
publicans for a net gain of five
men for the Republican party. The

dependent, for a 31-man gain for
