Tibet Asks.
Aid Against
ChinaReds
UN Intervention
Seen as Unlikely
By The Associated Press
Tibet appealed to the United
Nations yesterday to rescue her
from the Chinese Communist in-
vader.
A 1,400-word cable, coming two
days after the Chinese Reds in
effect defied the Security Council
even to question them about their
presence in northern Korea, seem-
ed doomed to go'unheeded.
* *
THE COUNCIL ignored yester-
day the Communist refusal to
come before the UN to explain
their actions in Korea, but it was
understood the United States and
other Western delegations would
ask the Council tomorrow to order
their withdrawal from the front.
The Tibetan message, sent by
Finance Minister Tsepon Sha-
kabpa to UN Secretary General
Trygve Lie, posed knotty com-
plications, as some delegations
do not consider Tibet a nation.
Even Nationalist China, bitter-
est enemy of the Chinese Reds.
sees eye to eye with them on the
status of Tibet as Chinese terri-
tory.
Tibet is not a UN member and
no action on the appeal can be
taken unless it finds a sponsor.
So far none of the 11 Security
Council members indicated any
desire to take up the case.
AT THE same time India's rep-
resentative in Tibet reported that
Chinese Communist invaders of
that remote Himalayan country
still are at least 300 air miles
from the monastery capital at
Lhasa.
The Indian Foreign Ministry
has had no word either from its
Lhasa representative nor from its
anbassador in Peiping. concern-
ing reports that the Tibetans had
reached a cease-fire agreement
with the Chinese Reds.
A Foreign Ministry spokesman
said many of the unofficial reports
coming from Kalimpong on the
-Indian-Tibetan border were
"scare-mongering." Reports from
that important center on the cara-
van route between Lhasa and In-
dia have even had the Red troops
inside the capital and have said
many Tibetans were fighting on
the side of .the Chinese "Libera-
tors."'
AFL SeeKs
To Organize
'U' Carpenters
AFL Capenters local 512 yes-
terday filed a petition with the
NLRB to have the union recogniz-
ed as the bargaining agent for
University carpenters.
Fred Anderson, business agent
for local 512 based his claim on
his contention that the University
is engaged in interstate commerce.
The Board of Regents has main-
tained that it is prohibited by
state "constitutional responsibili-
ties" for recognizing a union as a
collective bargaining agent.
Claiming that his move was
merely an attempt to clarify the
legal status of the University in
regard to its employes, Anderson

said that his union had signed up
as members all 37 of the Univer-
sity's maintenance carpenter force.
University officials last night
claimed that they had not yet been
informed of the union's action.
Action must first be taken by
the NLRB before the University is
officially brought into the case,
they said.

Student Advice Sought as 'U' Plans
Review of Thanksgiving Vacation
By BOB KEITH
New hope for an extended, Thanksgiving Holiday next year
developed yesterday as Provost James P. Adams revealed that a com-
plete review of the University calendar is being considered.
It was made clear, however, that the proposed calendar study
would not lengthen this year's Thanksgiving vacation, which, as
usual, will last only one day,
* * * *
IN A COMMUNICATION to the Student Legislature, Provost
Adams announced that a special committee has been set up to
make a "comprehensive review of the calendar as a whole."
The long-disputed Thanksgiving Holiday will be reconsidered
along with other possible calendar changes, Provost Adams said.
He cleared the way for the Legislature to assist in preparing
the new calendar, thus for the first time providing for active student

AIM Policy,
For Election
Anunounced
The Association of Independent
Men last night decided not to urge
students to "vote independent" in
the Nov. 20-21 campus election.
But AIM will publish 3,500
"candidate information booklets"
which will list only independent
candidates and their qualifications.
* * *
THE PAMPHLET will urge stu-
dents to examine candidates'
statements in the Student Legisla-
ture election pamphlet and in The
Daily and then to "vote for the
candidate who will best represent
you.,
Earlier in the semester AIM
sought out independent men and
women in residence halls and
in rooming houses to run for
campus posts.
AIM also voted to conduct a raf-
fle for all voters-men and women,
affiliated and independent-in an
effort to get out a large vote.
Because more than 80% of the
students are independent AIM
leaders apparently believe a large
vote will favor independent candi-
dates.
* . *
DAVE BELIN, '51, president of
AIM, called last night's action a
radical change in AIM election pol-
icy. He said:
"This spring AIM urged stu-
dents to 'vote independent.' That
election booklet was a blanket
endorsement of independent
candidates; this one isn't. It is
an effort to get out an intelligent
vote by having students examine
candidates' records."
The raffle, Belin said, is an un-
precedented move to get a large
vote.

sity to its National Advisory Coun-
cil on Dental Research.
Dr. Vaughan is the Dean of the

ing problems.
Although students are prohibit-
ed by a Regents' ruling from serv-
ing directly on the calendar com-
mittee, the chairman of the com-
mittee will welcome an opportun-
ity to discuss some of the problems
with student representatives, Pro-
vost Adams said.
' * * *
ACTING immediately on Pro-
vost Adams' announcement,, the
SL cabinet yesterday nominated
Legislature members Dave Belin,
'51, and Irv Stenn, '52, to serve
with the committee in an advi-
sory capacity. Their appointment
awaits a vote of confirmation at
the Legislature's meeting tomor-
row.
Belin has been working for
more than a year as SL's "one-
man committeerto extend the
holiday."
Up to now he has been granted
only one brief hearing before the
Dean's Conference, which has fin-
al calendar jurisdiction.
. Belin saw yesterday's develop-
ment as "the most significent move
so far in bringing students and
University officials together to dis-
cuss the problem."
Quick, Start
ForPhoenix
The student Phoenix fund-rais-
ing drive got off to a quick start
yesterday as four house groups hit
80% membership contributions on
the first day of the campaign.
Stan Weinberger, '52, drive pub-
licity chairman, announced that
the groups-Phi Gamma Delta,
Kappa Alpha Theta, P'i Beta Phi
and Alpha Omicron Pi-will be
listed on a special plaque on the
diagonal that is being set up to
proclaim all the houses on campus
that turn in donations for 80%
of their membership.
Pi Beta Phi turned in dona-
tions for every member of their
house.
All organized house groups will
be contacted by volunteer student
Phoenix workers during the four-
week campaign.
In addition the crew of canvass-
ers, which numbers close to 1,200,
will make sure that all students
living in private homes in the city
are contacted for pledges to the
Phoenix Memorial.
Weinberger warned students to
be wary of persons seeking money
for the drive. "We are asking only
for pledges, not cash. Anyone ask-
ing for money is not from the
Phoenix Project," he said.

Reported In Fight
BULLETIN
With U.S. 7th Infantry Divi-
sion, Korea-(RP)-Two regiments
of the Seventh Division jumped
off today on full-scale drives for
the Manchurian border in bitter
cold weather.
SEOUL-(P)-An estimated 90,-
000 Chinese Communists today
were reported on the Northwest
Korean battlefront where U.S.
troops hammered out gains up to
two and one-half miles yesterday.
To the east in mountainous cen-
tral Korea, U.S. Marines plodded
five and one-.half miles northward
in sub-freezing weather and came
within sight of Changjin reser-
voir.
The Seventh Marine Regiment,
leading the advance, expected to
reach the southern end of the res-
ervoir by today.
* * *
IN THE FAR Northeast, 90 air
miles from the Korean-Siberian
border, U.S. warships and Marine
planes supported a South Korean
Republican regiment threatened
with envelopment by a suddenly-
resurgent North Korean Red Force.
A spokesman for the U.S. First
Corps estimated that 90,000 Chi-
nese Reds were facing the corps
on the northwest Korean fight-
ing front. He said they appeared
to be in three army groups, each
composed of three divisions.
The U.S. First Corps includes the
U.S. 24th Division, the U.S. First
Cavalry Division, the 27th British
Brigade and the South Korean
First Division.
* * *
THE REDS were reported pre-
paring strong defense' positions
north of the Allied Changchon Ri-
ver line.
The reports indicated the Reds
were digging In on high ground
west of Pakchon. Pakchon is on
the Taeryong River seve miles
northwest of the Allied-held
bridge across the Changchon Ri-
ver.
Mustang fighter planes strafed
and rocketed Pakchon yesterday.
The British Commonwealth Bri-
gade clung firmly to positions just
outside Pakchon.
The Communists also were re-
ported using many more mines and
boobytrapped. This presumably
lay the Allied advance. Two Amer
ican tanks were knocked out in a
minefield. Later, they were found
bobbytrapped. This presumably
was done to catch tank recovery
personnel.

Sergeant Walter Krasny, who is

heading the investigation, did say

THE PROBE followed publica-

University or town officials, were
taking bets totaling up to $2,000.
Meanwhile, The Daily learned
that earlier in the season, in ad-
dition to the two national pools
exposed in last week's articles,
for two weeks a smaller pool,
centered in Detroit and run by
an ex-University student, was
also in operation locally.
In its short life, the pool earned
for the former student and a part-
ner, $1100 each-$300 apiece the
first week, $800 the second.

Actng Head
OfVenezuela
Assassinated
By The Associated Press
The acting President of Vene-
zuela, Lt. Col. Carlos Delgado
Chalbaud, was assassinated yester-
day in Caracas.
Delgado, who headed a I' ree-
man military junta which seized
control of the country in 1948, died
of gunshot wounds.
THE BRIEF announcement was
given to the nation in a broadcast
by Defense Minister Marcos Perez
Jiminez, one of the surviving mem-
bers of the Junta. It gave no de-
tails.
Civil liberties were suspended
for Venezuela's 4,000,000 popu-
lation. A curfew blocked trans-
mission of news dispatches. Per-
sons were forbidden to enter or
leave the oil-rich country in
which Americans have a $2,000,-
000,000 investment. (Broadcasts
heard outside the country said
a state of seige-modified mar-
tial law-was imposed.)
In Washington the State De-
partment said a band of five men
headed by Rafael Simon Urbina,
kidnapped and then killed Delga-
do. The State Department did not
identify Simon Urbina, but respon-
sible Venezuelan sources in New
York said he is an old-time rebel
leader who had been employed on
special political police duty in Car-
acas for the past year or more.

floor of their respective national
conventions asking for the removal
of such clauses."
* * *
IF SUCH ACTION is not, taken,
the proposal continues, recognition
by the Student Affairs Committee
should be denied the resisting fra-
ternities.
The proposal goes a step far-
ther by setting September of
1956 as a time limit for the re-
moval of questionable clauses.
If by that time such clauses have
not been removed from fraternity
constitutions, the offending frater-
nities should be denied recognition
by the SAC until the clauses have
been removed, according to the
proposal.
BOB VOGT, IFC president and
SL member last night said that he
was not in favor of Ruben's pro-
posal.
IFC has introduced a similar
motion to fraternity ho-:se presi-
dents, but without the Septem-
ber, 1956 time limit.
It is now being polled by the
presidents in the various houses
and results should be available at
the Wednesday SL meeting.

A L S O DISCUSSED at last

letic property. These will be dis-
tributed from 3 to 5 p.m. this week
at the SL office in the Adminis-
tration Building.

ing to George Roumell, SL presi-

Canvassers
Spot Errors
In Counting
Rechecks Add to
Governor's Total
DETROIT - (IP) - Michigan's
hectic governorship scramble -
took another odd twist yesterday
when Democratic incumbent G.
Mennen Williams moved out into
his biggest lead since Republican
former Gov. Harry F. Kelly was
considered elected five days ago.
Correction of two sizeable er-
rors and half a dozen small but
still important ones gave Williams
a margin of 887 votes.
* * *
THE OFFICIAL canvass was
completed in all but four-one of
them all-important Wayne-of the
state's 83 counties. But the canvass
will decide only one thing-who
will ask for the recount that is
certain to follow.
Almost a full week after the
polls were thrown open, here's
how the count stood:
Williams 935,174
Kelly 934,287
The latest in a host of changes
that have been made came as Shia-
wassee County reported complete,
official returns. This, like a ma-
jority of the others, was in Wil-
lams' favor.
". *
BUT THE day's biggest revision
was in Macomb county.
Eugene Haight, a housepainter
who served as chairman of the
election board for precinct 6, ap-
peared before Macomb's can-
vassing board this morning and
convinced officials that original
totals showing Kelly had won
the precinct, 504 votes to 209,
actually were figures on the co-
lored oleomargarine referendum
instead of the Governor's race.
The tally book had come un-
stapled, Haight explained, and pre-
cinct workers, in putting it back
together, got the old page in the
wrong place.
In reality, Haight showed from
scribbled notes on the back of a
tattered sample ballot, Williams
had won the heavily Democratic
precinct by a vote of 707 to 221.
The canvassing board accepted
Haight's revision, which meant a
change of 781 votes in favor of
Williams, and said the proof sub-
mitted was "conclusive enough" so
that they would not reopen the
ballot box to retrieve the election
board's tally sheet which had been
inadvertantly locked in the box in-
stead of turned in to the county
clerk.
That was the big change that
developed yesterday-but by no
means the only one.
Kent county canvassers dis-
covered a transcribing error by an
election worker that forced a re-
vision of the Williams total, up-
ward by 100 votes.
Plane Crashes

MARSEILLE, France -(P)- A
Canadian plane carrying 51 pas-

But nearly 10 hours after the

awaited from rescue teams, who
faced a climb of about six hours
through rain and snow to reach
