Recount of
State Ballots
Election Muddle
Causes Confusion
LANSING -(A')- A state-wide
recount of a governorship election
-first in Michigan history-was
assured last night, but that was
the only positive point in a maze
of legal tangles arising out of the
state's Nov. 7 election muddle.
While Governor G. Mennen Wil-
iams, the 39-year-old Democrat
and first termer, relaxed beaming
in theexecutive office, secured by
a 1,52 vote lead, his Republican
opponent, former Governor Harry
F. Kelly was heading back from a
Florida rest to prepare for the re-
count battle.
* * *
KELLY gave his approval to a
decision of the GOP high com-
mand to call for a state-wide re-
count at Republican expense. How-
ever, legislators still are talking
about the state paying the bill.
Kelly remarked in a telephone
interview that it was customary
for the losing side to seek a re-
count only in those areas where
it expected to gain votes.
That leaves the winning party
to recount the others to offset any
gains by the loser.
* * *
"SUCH AN approach," Kelly
said, "in my opinion, would result
in a recount of the greater part of
our state's precincts and still may
not accurately express the major-
ity will of the people.
"Why not for the small com-
paratively extra effort get the ans-
wer to the question-which candi-
date for governor obtained the ma-
jority of the votes. In this manner
only will the confidence of the peo-,
ple in our American system be
While the state, still unable to
receive a recount petition formal-
ly, began to polish up the long-un-
used recount machinery, a host of
legal tangles were dumped into the
lap of Attorney General Stephen
J. Roth, a DenidcratWho lost out
in the unofficial count of the Nov.
7 election.
Phone Strike
Enters Courts
coast to coast strike of CIO Tele-
phone Equipment Workers was
fought in the courts and streets
across the nation yesterday.
Injunctions restraining t h e
equipment workers from picketing
exchanges were granted in Kentuc-
ky and Wisconsin but were refused
in Omaha and Georgia. In Penn-
sylvania, a hearing on a request by
Bell Telephone Company for an
injinction will be heard tomorrow.
MEANWHILE, violence on the
picket lines flared in Philadelphia
and in Washington.
The big blowup occurred in
Philadelphia where pickets for
the second successive day bat-
tied police to keep non-striking
Bell Telephone operators from
going to work. Again the pickets
failed as police beat them back
and allowed the Bell workers to
report on the job.
In Milwaukee, Circuit Court

Judge Walter Schinz issued a tem-
porary restraining order prohibit-
ing striking Western Electric Co.
workers from picketing exchanges
of the Wisconsin Telephone Com-
pany in Wisconsin. The order was
issued at the request of the State
Employment Relations Board. The
judge held that no labor dispute
exists between strikers and the tel-
ephone company. He will decide
later on the board's request for a
permanent order under terms of
the Wisconsin utility anti-strike
act on the grounds that picketing
impares essential public service.
Kentucky officers spent the day
trying to serve a restraining order
banning picketing of Southern Bell
offices anywhere in the state. But
striking Western Electric Officials
dodged the order servers by quick-
ly withdrawing after picketing ex-
changes in four towns. The order
was issued in Louisville Tuesday.

End Marshall
Plan in 1952
Says Bricker
WASHINGTON - (') -- Sena-
tor Bricker (R-Ohio) came out
firmly yesterday against any ex-
tension of the Marshall Plan be-
yond its scheduled 1952 expiration
He predicted a more active role
for Congress in the foreign rela-
tions field as a result of Republi-
can gains in the Nov. 7 election,
and said these should include
searching inquiries into the Ad-
ministration's plans for foreign
military assistance and aid to un-
developed areas.
* . *
FURTHER, Bricker told report-
ers, Congress must in the future
"have its say before we send troops
into a war which may result in a
world wide conflict."
He said there was no question
that President Truman circum-
vented the constitutionalpower
of Congress to declare war in
ordering American troops to de-
fend South Korea last June un-
der a United Nations resolution.
"This easily could have, and may
yet lead, to a full fledged war,"
he said.
* * .
BRICKER was the first of the
Republican Senators to return to
the capital after the election and
call publicly for a definite halt to
Marshall Plan aid for Western
Europe at the end of its scheduled
four-year' life span.,
But a number of other Re-
publicans have voiced similar
views in the past and probably
will press them more strongly in
the future as a result of the elec-
tion which trimmed the Demo-
cratic Senate edge from 54-42
to 49-47.
The GOP attitude of foreign pol-
icy also is playing a major role in
what may be a bitter struggle
among Republicans for an addi-
tional seat on the Foreign Rela-
tions Committee.

Acheson Set
To Confer
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Secretary of
State Acheson yesterday declared
American readiness to "explore
every possibility" of reaching a
peaceful settlement with Commu-
nist China over Korea.
He thus apparently offered to
negotiate with the Chinese Reds
through the UN but he warned
that th~ey may be in Korea not wo
protect their Manchurian border
interests but "to precipiate a really
great crisis in the world."
* * *
State Dean Rusk, chief of far east-
ern relations under Acheson, said
frankly that American leaders do
not know'why Red China ente ed
the Korea fighting.
"It is of greatest importance
for us to try to find out whether
the Chinese have limited obec-
tives which are negotiable," he
Acheson virtually offered the
Peiping regime-which the United
States does not recognize-assur-
ances that the American govern-
ment has no intention of lending
its forces across the border into
Manchuria and also that it will do
everything possible to protect Chi-
na's interests in the border area-
notably the Yalu power dams.
* * *
HE SAID everything possible
must be done to prevent the Red
Chinese intervention from plung-
ing the world into a "tragedy of
the most colossal nature."
Acheson and Rusk spoke at a
conference of representatives of'
200 American organizations which
periodically send delegates to the
State Department to discuss and
get reports on foreign policy.

Close 20-18
Vote Follows
Hot Dispute
Motion May Hit
Other 'U' Groups
The Student Legislature voted
late last night to ask the Student
Affairs Committee to clamp a six
year time limit on fraternities for
getting rid of discriminatory claus-
es in their constitutions.
In a bold, highly controversial
move, SL called for the time limit
by a narrow 20-18 margin.
If accepted by SAC, the 'hotly-
disputed' time limit would result
in the banning from campus of
fraternities which still had dis-
criminatory constitutional clauses
by September, 1956.
IN ADDITION to setting the
time limit, SL called on fraterni-
ties with discriminatory clauses
in their constitutions to:
1. Present a motion on the fioor
of their respective national con-
ventions asking for removal of
such clauses.
2. Vote positively for such a
3. Report to SAC that they
have taken such action at the
beginning of each school year af-
ter attending a national conven-

IF BY 1956 any fraternity had
not succeeded in getting the claus-
es removed, SAC would deny

pected, defense budgets soar to
$50,000,000,000 or $60,000,000,000.
The National Production Autho-
rity made this forecast yesterday
and, at the same time, cinched up
defense preparations by:
First, banning the construction
of bars and cocktail lounges un-
der the prohibition against new
"amusement facilities."
Second, ordering the allocation
of 10,000 tons of steel a month,
starting January 1, to build 12
Great Lakes ore carriers and other
vessels needed to expand the steel
General Counsel, told reporters he
did not know whether ti - defense
drive, slowly gaining momentum,
will require rationing of automo-
biles or other consumer goods by
next mid-year.
The system involves complete al-
location of three basic metals-
steel, copper and aluminum-to all
users. This governs the activity of
each industry, and thus automati-
cally controls the quantity of oth-
er materials used.

Amid Republican cries -of "gag
rule," the committee voted to close
hearings Nov. 22, and to bar testi-
mony dealing with alternative
forms of taxation.
* s* *
THE MOTION was offered by
Rep. Cooper (D-Tenn) and, the
vote followed straight party lines.
Chairman Doughton (D-NC) had
said that if the hearings dragged
past Thanksgiving, there would be
no action at the lame duck ses-
sion of Congress, scheduled to be-
gin Nov. 27.
Rep. Reed (R-NY), ranking
Republican of the committee,
called the decision "the rankest
form of steamroller tactics and
gag rule."

tion exacted a pledge in the last
Congressional session that such a
bill would be considered before the
year's end.

Inter-Fraternity Council rep-
resentatives who were on hand
to head off the time limit said
it would create so much hard
feeling within houses that fur-
fher moves tb eliminate discrimi-

BUT Legislator Herb Ruben, who
drew up the SL plan, asserted that
although you can't legislate pre-

at least remove the legal barriera
to its elimination.
Many fraternities have been
forced to, discriminate in taking
in members because of these legal
barriers, he pointed out. "For the
University and SL to condone ex-
istance of such discriminatory
clauses is an anachronism in our
society," Ruben added.

State Offices Held Open by Recount

The chief reason behind State
Democrats' call for a state-wide
recount involving key offices is to
prevent a temporary governor
from assuming office January 1,
according to Prof. C. Ferrel Heady,

100,000 votes, would be sworn in as
acting governor.
In the event of Vandenberg's
temporary assumption of the
governorship, 27 key administra-
tive offices, including the Pub-
lic Service Commission, the Liq-

element will keep Vandenberg
from moving up into the gov-
ernor's position January 1,"
Prof. Heady continued.
He expressed some doubt over
