Malik Against
Chinese Red
Attacks U.S. Role
In Korean War
NEW YORK-(P)-Russia's Ja-
cob A. Malik served notice yester-
day that he will veto a six-power
demand that' Communist China
pull its troops out of the Korean
War immediately.
Confronted with that impasse,
the United States read to the Se-
curity Council President Truman's
statement that the U.S. never had
any intention of sending troops
into China.

once more, said the resolution was
based on illegal council decisions
and he would vote against it. There
were reports last night that the
backers of the resolution, includ-
ing the U.S., might not press for a
vote immediately in view of a cer-
tain Soviet veto.
Malik insisted that the Coun-
cil hear a three-page statement
from Peiping denouncing the
U.S. on charges of aggression
against China and Korea.
When Malik had spoken and the
statement of the Peiping regime
was read, Ernest A. Gross, U.S. of-
ficial, read into the record Presi-
dent Truman's pledge that the U.S.
"never at any time entertained any
intention to carry hostilities into
Malik's announcement that he
will vote against the resolution had
been expected from the start of
this case in the Council. The back-
ers are expected to urge the Gene-
ral Assembly to act after the veto.
Malik said the resolution is bas-
ed on illegal actions of the Secur-
ity council in ordering UN forces
into Korea while the Soviet Union
and Red China were not on the

SEOUL - (IP) - Allied troops
scratched out gains up to five miles
against spotty Red resistance in a
general advance along the sleet-
struck fighting front in North Ko-
rea yesterday.
The sleet made the going rough
for the foot soldiers, and cut down
the around-the-clock bombing of
Red bases and supply centers.
Foreign Aid
Vital To Stop.
Communist aggression must be
fought on two fronts-on the mili-
tary front and on the economic-
political front, Donald C. Stone,
administration director of the Eco-
nomic Cooperation Administra-
tion, said yesterday.
In a Rackham Amphitheatre
lecture sponsored by the Institute
of Public Administration, Stone
focused his speech on "ECA's Role
in the Defense of the Free World."
* * *
THE KOREAN WAR, he said,
has pointed out the immediacy of
the dangers of Communist aggres-
sion; yet there is danger in the
fact that Korea may cause Ameri-
-cans to emphasize military as-
pects in neglect of foreign eco-
nomic aid.
"Preventive war is the most
horrible means of solving the
problem," he declared. "More-
over, we've learned that you
can't stop ideas with bullets."
Stone cited examples of the
success of ECA in assisting the re-
habilitation of both European and
Far Eastern countries.
IN 1947, there was nothing but
despair in Europe, according to
Stone, but immediately after Con-
gress voted Marshall Plan appro-
priations and ECA aid, the feeling
of futility was replaced by hope.
"Within a two year period,
European production has ex-
ceeded pre-war production by
25%," he asserted. "With this
new capacity to meet the neces-
isary elementals of life, living
standards also showed a marked
"However, more important is the
strengthening of democratic gov-
ernment in Europe, particularly in
France, Italy, Greece, and Tur-
key. There has been a steady de-
cline in Communist strength in
these countries," he explained.
"ECA is trying to demonstrate
that better living conditions exist
under freedom, and its programs
have put emphasis on bread and
butter for the masses," he added.

Temperatures rose from previous
near-zero levels, however.

CHINESE and Korean Commu-
nists pulled back a little more in
the northwest and north-central
sectors. The steam went out of a
North Korean Red counterattack
in the far northeast.
The U.S. First Corps advanced
on a 30-mile front in the north-
west against practically no op-
On the west end of the line, the
Korean Republican First Division
moved four miles northwest of
Pakchon, seven miles north of the
Chongchon River, and the British
Commonwealth 27th Bridgade roll-
ed through Pakchon and pushed
about three miles north.
* * *
NORTHEAST of Pakchon, the
U.S. 24th Division advanced up to a
mile and one-half and sent patrols
as far as Yongsong. The U.S. First
Cavalry Division moved almost a
mile north of the old walled city
of Yongbyon.
These advances swelled the Al-
lied Chongchon River bridge-
head northward and westward.
On the bridgehead's east side,
the Korean Republic's Second
Corps struggled back to Tokchon,
25 miles east of Yongbyon, and
thereby regained most of the four
miles lost to counterattacking Reds
earlier in the week.
* * *
Seventh Infantry Division sent one
spearhead up the east banks of the
Pujon reservoir and another-the
U.S. 17th Regiment-five miles
north to the 41st parallel against
Red tanks, artillery and infantry.
The advance, yesterday's biggest,
put the 17th only 20 miles south
of the Manchurian border on the
road to Kapsan.
Meanwhile, U.S., British and
Turkish troops cleared highway
and rail lines for shipment of more
winter clothing to the troops at
the front.

Vote Recount
To Be Honest
Wayne Canvass
LANSING -(P)- The chairman
of the State Board of Canvassers
promised yesterday an all-out ef-
fort to make certain the Michigan
governorship election recount is an
honest, impartial affair.
The chairman, Secretary of
State Fred 'M. Alger, Jr., said he
was determined the recount will be
operated to restore public confi-
dence in the election system, re-
portedly badly strained by a se-
ries of post-election errors and
* * *
ALGER SAID he hoped to see
the recount start by Dec. 4. He ex-
pressed belief that the official can-
vass of all 83 counties could be
completed today.
Reports from Wayne County,
however, indicated the Wayne
canvass would not be over until
Dec. 4, and the state would need
a day or two to complete its end
of the transaction.
Former Governor Harry F. Kelly,
the Republican nominee, has call-
ed for a state-wide recount of 4,361
precincts to contest his "defeat"
by Governor G. Mennen Williams.
Williams' margin of victory in
an unofficial tabulation of official
county canvasses was 1,152.
"As far as I am concerned," Al-
ger said, "there will be no jockey-
ing for votes but a straight recount
no matter who wins."

SL Evaluation Proj ect
Abandoned by Students

A five-man group of students
last night dropped a plan design-
ed to evaluate independent Stu-

benefit of the 800 foreign students
on campus.
Lack of time and finances were
the preventive factors, according
to Ed Lanning, who with Uzoma

the informal committee.

in the election and list candidates
