Malik PeaceI
Plan Called
Russian Favored
U.S., RedParley
By The Associated Press
The State Department dismissed
as propaganda last night proposals
backed by Russia's Jacob A. Malik
for settlement of major difficul-
ties between the United States and
the Soviet Union.
In answer to questions from a
delegation of the Maryland Com-
mittee for Peace, Malik said yes-
terday he favors a meeting f top
leaders of both countries to ne-
gotiate for peace.
A STATE Department spokes-
man said that Malik's affirmative
answers "smacks of the Stockholm
peace petition."
"We have had enough of
words," he told reporters. "What
is needed now is action to give
practical effect to these expres-
sions of good intention."
This brusque reaction to the So-
viet move in New York was stated
' after consultation between the
State Department and the Ameri-
can delegation to the United Na-
tions, headed by Secretary of
State Acheson.

MALIK also said his government
would pledge not to be the first to
use the atomic bomb in answering
the Maryland Committee for
Peace. This organization has been
active in distributing a "peace bal-
lot" asking signers whether they
favor outlawing of atomic weapons
and a U.S.-Russian meeting to
negotiate differences.
In favoring the meeting of "top
leaders," Malik presumably meat

Hot Election
Bout Develops
In Ann Arbor
With a strongly-backed Demo-
crat vying fo ra congressional seat
in this traditionally Republican
section of the state, a fierce 1950
election campaign is shaping up
The Democrat, Prof. John P.
Dawson, of the University Law
School, will battle it out with
Republica George Meader, one-
time Washtenaw County prosecu-
tor, in the Nov. 7 contest for the
Second District congressional post.
,from four counties (Washtenaw,
Jackson, Monroe and Lenawee),
the Second District seat will be
vacated upon the retirement of
Rep. Earl C. Michener, of Adrian,
at the end of the year.
Spurred by an overwhelming
victory in the Sept. 12 primary,
Prof. Dawson has entered the
campaign "ready and eager to
'do battle." The wartime organ-
izer of America's economic pro-
gram in 13 Middle Eastern na-
tions won the nomination hands
down. He swept three of the
four counties by an almost five-
to-one margin.
But Prof. Dawson's 5,328 vote
total was only half as big as the
tally rolled up by his opponent
in the closely contested Republi-
can primary. In that fight Mead-
er pulled ahead of his nearest
challenger, 10,271 to 7,115.

MSC' Painting
The painting of block "M's" on
the Michigan State College cam-
pus late Friday night drew quick
condemnation yesterday from
George Roumell, '51, president of
the Student Legislature.
Although the offenders were not
caught, the daubbings were gener-
ally attributed to prowling Univer-
sity students. The M's were found
on the statue of the MSC Spartan
and on several buildings early Sat-
urday morning.
"This regretable action on the
part of certain individuals, pre-
sumably University students,
shows a complete lack of mature
sportsmanship," Roumell said.

It was a strange moonlight
which shined upon campus
couples last night at closing
A total lunar eclipse was in
progress, causing the moon to
take on a dull coppery color.
The phenomenal event
brought varied reactions from
the students. At the NewDorm
Phyllis Gringer remarked, "It's
so bright at our door, no eclipse
could affect it."
Bob Steinberg lamented, "I
was planning a moonlight hay-
ride, but it eclipsed on me."
But Gay Kinsey enjoyed the
spectacle. "I could watch for

U' To .Draft
Labor Code
At a special week-end meeting,
the Board of Regents paved the
way for a new, formal code to
hourly-rated employes and at the
same time killed chances for any
additional wage increases this year
for these employes.
The first meeting in the series
authorized by the Regents between
representatives of the employes
and University officials to draft
the code was held yesterday short-
ly after public distribution on the
new Regent's statement on .labor
to act as sole bargaining agents
for the University's hourly-rated
employes, officials of the Building
Service Employes Brotherhood,
Local 378 (AFL) postponed their
threatened strike to participate in
the discussions.
In denying the union's de-
mand to act as bargaining agent,
the Regents declared that under
the State Constitution they
could not recognize any group
as exclusive agent for Univer-
sity employes.
They did, however, recognize
the right of the union to speak
on behalf of its members In the
University labor force and it was
under this stipulation that the
union was represented in the codi-
fication conference.

ON THE SUBJECT of a wage
hike the Regents were emphatic.
Pointing out that they had al-
ready previously granted a five
cents an hour boost retroactive to
July 1, the Board said, "The Uni-
versity must operate on a budget
based upon fixed income and ...
cannot during a fiscal year pass

Korean War
Takes Rap
For Decline
Ratio Outlook for
Men Improving
The war has struck home.
At least that's the opinion of
the University Registrar Ira M.
Smith who blames the "Korean
situation, plus the unsettled world
conditions" for t he first big de-
cline in enrollment since the end
of World War II.
Incomplete, -but latest enroll-
ment figures available, show a ten
per cent decrease in resident stu-
dents since the fall of 1949.

THERE ARE now 18,527 stu-
dents on} campus as compared with
20,618 enrolled last year.
In addition, there are 2,962
students taking credit courses
through the six Extension Ser-
vice centers throughout the
This brings the University en-
rollment figure to 21,489 accord-
ing to latest reports. The final en-
rollment in credit courses is ex-
pected to be over 22,500 as com-
pared with 24,212 in the fall of
last year.
ALTHOUGH there has been a
decline in the campus student
body, non-resident students have
increased more than 28 per cent.
This represents an addition of 662
students to the 2,300 who took cre-
dit courses-last year through the
Extension Service.
Until the change in the inter-
national situation this summer,
University officiaIs expected that
enrollment would be about the
same as last year.
But the sudden outbreak of
fighting in. Korea changed the
situation entirely.
"It became clear after hostili-
ties continued throughout the
summer that the Korean situation,
pus the unsettled world condi-
tions, could have only the one ef-
fect of reducing the enrollment,"
Registrar Smith said.
It was impossible to predict the
size of the decline however, until
last Saturday when compilation'

The number of veterans con-
tinued the decline which began
after the peak veteran enrollment
in the fall of 1947. There are 6,971
veterans taking credit courses this
fall as against 9,692 a year ago.
There are now 955 veterans en-

more than 1,000 less than were en-

than at this time last year.
