Reach Key
Hydro Area
Marines Drive on
In Freezing Cold
SEOUL -(AP)-- United Nations
troops probed the hydroelectric
heart of northeast Korea early to-
day in freezing weather, pressed a
newthrust toward the Manchurian
frontier and hacked out small
gains in the frigid northwest.
U.S. Marines reached the huge
Chinjin reservoir yesterday and
took Hagaru at the southern tip
of the Great River Lake that
makes power for most of northeast
Korea's industries and many in
Chinese Communist Manchuria.
U.S. SEVENTH Division patrols
operating 15 miles to the north-
east reached the east shore of Pu-
jon reservoir, another unit in the
Japanese-built North Korean hy-
droelectric complex. A U.S. Tenth
Corps spokesman said the Army
'troops encountered no Reds.
* hFarther north other troops of
-the Seventh Division fought
northward in the bitter cold and
oiow on a fresh push for the
Manchurian border.
On the main battlefront in
northwestern Korea American,
British and Republic of Korea
forces moved forward in below-
freezing temperatures.
In some sectors there was bitter
see-saw fighting. In others UN'
troops 'were unopposed.
ONE MARINE combat officer
who returned from the frozen
Changjin reservoir front in North
Korea yesterday reported that lea-
thernecks there are short of win-
ter clothing, tanks, transport and
carbine ammunition.
The officer, who asked not to
be quoted by name, is a veteran
w of the Pacific war.
He said that "If we get some
equipment up t h e r e (around
Changjin reservoir) we can hold
those mountains until hell freezes
over, in spite of the weather. But
if we don't there is a good chance
that those boys will get their heads
punched in,"
Meanwhile Gen. MacArthur's
headquarters released a statement
saying, that "winter clpthing de-
signed to protect fighting .men in
Korea against cold-wet weather
has been issued to nortlternmost
troops."n
More Students
Questioned in
Football Pool'
Investigation of student football
pools continued yesterday, as po-
lice announced that man students
had been interviewed i connec-
tion with the gambling.
Sergeant Walter Krasny, police
department detective heading the
investigation, said that no formal
announcement of findings would
be made for a while yet, as investi-
gations were expected to continue
for several more days.
Krasny said he talked to Asso-
ciate Dean of Students Walter B.
Rea yesterday afternoon in con-
nection with the case, but declined
to comment on the conference.
Dean Rea said the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs would not make any
statement until they receive a com-
plete report from the police.

The probe began last week fol-
lowing publication in The Daily of
a series of articles describing the
mechanism of the campus pools.

Discrimination Question
To Go Before SL Today
i G

A proposal to place a time limit
on fraternities for eliminating dis-
criminatory clauses in their con-
stitutions will be brought before
the Student Legislature in its
pre-election meeting at 7:30 p.m.
today in the Union.
The motion, to be presented by
Herb Ruben, chairman of SL's
IFC To Hit
Bias Clause
Time Limit
An Interfraternity Council rep-
resentative will be on hand at the
Student Legislature's meeting to-
night to try to head off the pro-
posed time limit on the removal of
fraternity discriminatory clauses.
In countering the time limit pro-
posal, Peter Johnstone, '51, chair-
man of IFC'k human relations
committee, will suggest that the
1956 deadline be dropped complete-
ly and recommend in its place that
fraternities berequired to report
to the SL what difficulties might
arise to prevent them from getting
the clauses removed in time.
"Some houses would encounter
severe technical obstacles which
would keep them from removing
their clauses even ,by 1956," John-
stone said. One or two fraterni-
ties, for example, might not have
national conventions by then, he
intimated.
Johnstone will also 'suggest that
SL conduct a survey of attitudes
on discrimination, not only in fra-
ternities, but in other campus
groups as well.

human relations committee, would
specifically require :
1. Local chapters whose na-
tional constitutions have dis-
criminatory clauses must present
motions asking the removal of
such clauses on the floor of their
national conventions.
2. A time limit of September,
1956; would b& set for the com-
plete removal of discriminatory
clauses from fraternity consti-
tution.
If either of these stipulations is.
not complied with by any frater-
nity, the motion would have the'
Student Affairs Committee with-
draw its recognition of the offend-
ing chapter.
Should the motion pass, it will
be sent to the Student Affairs
Committee, which has jurisdiction
in the matter, for its considera-
tion.
ALSO TONIGHT, the Student
Legislature will lay final plans for
the all-campus elections to be
held next Monday and Tuesday.
All SL candidates are required
to attend the meeting, during
which important last minute elec-
tion problems will be ironed out,
Jim Storrie, '51 BAd, citizenship
committee chairman said.
By Friday, candidates for stu-
dent positions will have attend-
ed more than 20 candidates open
houses, which have been "high-
ly successful" thus far, accord-
ing to Judy Sinclair, '52, SL
open house organizer.
Miss Sinclair praised the heavy,
particilpation of both candidates,
and house groups, emphasizing
that in this manner students can
come to a better understanding
of the issues involved and make
an intelligent selection of the,
many candidates.

Profits Tax
Law Urged
By Truman
President Asks
Four Billion Levy
WASHINGTON - (IP) - Presi-
dent Truman yesterday called on
Congress to slap a $4,000,000,000-
a-year excess profits tax on corpo-
rations, retroactive to last July 1.
In a letter to Rep. Doughton (D-
N.C.), chairman of the HouseWays
and Means Committee which opens
tax hearings tomorrow, Truman
asked for passage of the law before
the end of the short session sche-
duled to start Nov. 27.
DOUGHTON told reporters that
September's "first installment" tax
act obligates his committee to write
an excess profits bill. He said:
"We've got to mnake an effort to
get it through this session."
The President declared that
business profits have risen be-
cause of rearmament, and, add-
ed:
"These profits should obviously
be taxed as part of a sound pro-
gram of defense taxation."
* * *
BUT THIS merely 'will complete
the program for 1950, Truman
said. It must be followed early in
1951 by a review of "our needs for
further tax legislation."
"An adequate tax program is
our strongest weapon in prevent-
ing inflation. The need for ac-
tion on this scene iseurgent ."-
'The excess profits tax, unpopu-
lar with businessmen, puts a heavy
tax penalty on profits above a
specified. "normal" level of earn-
ings. Its supporters say it dis-
courages profiteering because it
takes the profit out of needless
price boosts.
The President's letter quashed
speculation that he might modify
his tax views in the light of heavy
Republican gains in last week's
Congressional elections.
"It is never pleasant to increase
taxes," he said, "but in such times
as these it is absolutely necessary."

New Foreign
Aid Bill Asked
By President
WASHINGTON-)-President
Truman has ordered government
agencies to begin at once blue-
printing a new multi-billion dol-
lar foreign aid program for pre-
sentation to Congress in Janu-
ary. ,
Word of the White House move
came out as lawmakers indicated
that a searching review of foreign
aid programs, military as well as
economic, will have high priority
in the new Congress. A collision
of the plans seemed likely.
ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS
said, however, that they expect
Republican leaders in Congress will
be consulted in shaping the fin-
al recommendations because the
President desires a bi-partisan ap-
proach to the whole undertaking.
Senators Ferguson (R-Mich.)
and Green (D-R..) said yester-
day that they want full informa-
tion on the scope and adequacy
of future programs.
W. Averell Harriman, Truman's
special advisor on foreign affairs,
has been given the task of coordi-
nating the foreign aid planning

work.
The proposals for new legisla-
tion and new money will be aim-
ed at carrying out the objectives
of the Gray refort on U.S: for-
eign economic policy which Tru-
man released Sunday.

'Point Four' Post

Kelly Backs
GOP Move
For Recount
Margin of 1,152
Closest in History
DETROIT-(')-With the off -
cial canvass showing Democratic
Gov. G. Mennen Williams reelected
as Michigan's Chief Executive, Re-
publicans last night called for a
recount.
The official canvass of the
state's 83 counties showed that
Williams won the hotly-contested
battle with former Gov. Harry F.
Kelly by a margin of 1,152 votes
-the narrowest margin in the
state's history.
AN UNOFFICIAL tabulation of
the county-by-county canvass gave
this final figure:
WiJ liams (D) 935,152
Kelly (R) 934,000
Kelly, in a statement, said he
was in accord with the decision of
Republican leaders that a recount
should be made. Republican head-
quarters said the GOP would foot
the bill for the statewide recount,
estimated to cost $20,000.
Pointing out that the situation
that exists in some parts of Michi-
gan today is an unusual one, Kel-
ly said "we would be remiss to our
responsibility to the people of
Michigan if we did not ask for a
full recount."
AT THE same time, Williams-is-
sued a "victory" statement in
Lansing, pointing out the people
of Michigan have "for the first
time in 36 years reelected a Demo-
cratic governor."
Williams said the election re-
sults were "a source of great per-
sonal satisfaction. But far more
significantly, the neary one mil-
lion votes recorded for me indi-
cate confidence in my adminis-
tration's record, program and
ideals of good government."
Williams was the only Demo-
crat elected to a major state office
in the Nov. 7 election.
* * *.
AT FIRST it appeared that even
the governor's post fell into Re-
publican hands, with Michigan's
two-term wartime Gov. Harry F.
Kelly the winner by nearly a 6,000-
vote margin in the first complete
unofficial newspaper returns.
But that was before a flood of
mixups submerged county can-
vassing boards throughout the
state with at rush job of
straightening out the hairline
contest.
Approximately half the state's
83 counties subsequently came up
with corrections in the official
score for their precincts.
The County Board of Canvasers
under the supervision of the State
Canvassing Board will handle the
probable Washtenaw County gu-
bernatorial vote recount, according
to Henry Oakley, member of the
Secretary of State's office.
The local board will have the
authority to hire any extra help
needed to recount the county's 35,-
000 ballots.

U' Aliens Face Quiz
Under McCarran Act

WASHINGTON - (P) - Presi-

Garland Bennett, President of Ok-
lahoma A. and M., the job of di-
recting export of American know-
how under the "Point Four" pro-
gram to help build worldwide bar-
riers against Communism.

Alien students will soon be sub-
jects of an Immigration Service
investigation, precipitated by the;
recently passed McCarran Bill.
The service is planning to check
up on all alieps who are studying
in the United States under a tem-1
porary permit. The examination is
required by the bill, which ex-
cludes from this country all for-

A JUSTICE department offi-

be examined on its own merits.

INDIGNANT OVER the propos-
ed investigation, he said, "This
section of the act is very clearly
working in opposition to the es-
tablished public policy in ,;regards

"Under the policy, there is a
program of reorientation in
democracy for students from
former totalitarian countries. It
is inconceivable that this un-
fortunate provision can long be
permitted to harm the Interna-

Program," he declared.
