Fighting Mad

Cadet Attack

Aroused Sailors
By The Associated Press
dog Navy team which had tasted
the football dregs all season rose
o majestic heights yesterday to'
crush Army's glamorous forces, 14
to 2, in one of the greatest upsets
ever registered in the 51 meetings
between the two service rivals.
A thundering crowd of 103,000
including President Truman, shook
Municipal ptadium wth its roars
as the fired-up Middies, winners
of only two previous games this
year, took command from the
start of the contest, scored twice
in the second period and thot-
tied every effort by the nation's
no. 2 team to get back in the ball
THE STUNNING defeat, largely
engineered by Navy's 209-pound
Quarterback, Bob Zastrow, who
scored one touchdown and passed
for a second, snapped a streak
which had seen the Cadets batter
their way through 28 games with-
out defeat. They were three touch-
cdown favorites at the kickoff yes-
The lat team to defeat the
Black Knights was Notre Dame,
in 1947. They were tied by Penn,
7-7, the same year and also
deadlocked by another fighting
Navy eleven, 21-21, In 1948. This
victory today was a tremendous
personal triumph for youthful
Eddie Erdelatz, who took over as
Navy's head coach only this sea-
There was nothing in thena-
ture of a fluke about it, either.
The Middies were much the bet-
ter team from start to finish. They
rattled the Soldiers' teeth with the
ferocity of theiir tackling, holding
the West Pointers' vaunted attack
to a single first down in the open-
ing half.

THEY PLUNGED and passed
their way for amazing yardage
through Army defenses which had
yielded only four scores in eight
previous games this season. To-
ward the close, when the Cadets
finally got their bearings and
threatened several times, the Tars
rose up and tossed them back on

WASHINGTON - Sen. Joseph
McCarthy (R-Wis.) told Presi-
dent Truman yesterday that Con-
gress ought to "immediately im-

peach you" unless the Adminis-
tration sanctions use of Chinese
Nationalist troops against the
Communists in Korea.

'Asks for No
Price Curbs
WASHINGTON-(A')-A top ad-
ministration official, W. Stuart
Symington, has told Congress pre-
sent economic controls ought to be
given more time to work "before'
we strait-jacket" the nation with
wage-price curbs.
He added, however, that future
world ,developments could change
his opinion.
SYMINGTON, who heads the.
National Security Resources 'Board,
predicted that the "real impact"
of the huge new defense program
on American consumers will be
felt about April 1.
And the impact "will grow
from there on," Symington de-
He expressed his views to the
Senate Banking Committee at a
closed meeting Wednesday in urg-
ing a stop-gap extension of the
Federal Rent Control Law. Wheth-
er developments since Wednesday
have changed his mind could not
be learned.
The committee made Syming-
ton's testimony public yesterday
1. Talk increased in Congress
that wage-price controls on at
least some goods and in some in-
dustries ought to be invoked soon.
Senator Byrd (D-Va), for exam-
ple, said selective controls should
be applied as quickly as possible.
Outside Congress Americans for
Democratic Action issued a state-
ment calling for "all-out mobili-
zation," including price controls.
2. The Senate planned to call
up for debate tomorrow a bill
which would continue federal rent
controls through Feb. 28. Under the
present law, controls expire Dec.
31 except in communities which
vote to extend them through June
AT THE Senate hearings, Sena-
tor Capehart (R-Ind) asked Sym-
ington whether the administration
plans to put wage and price con-
trols into effect within the next
60 days. Truman has authority to
impose them at any time.
In calling for more time for pre-
sent controls to work, Symington
said he was alluding to existing
consumer credit controls, real es-
tate credit restriction, allocation
of scarce essential materials and
tightening of bank credit.

which the Korean war dumped be-
fore it.
Meanwhile the legislators are
going ahead with a more limited
tax bill, designed to tax corpo-
ration profits considered excess.
The House begins debate tomor-
row on a measure designed to
raise $3,400,000,000 in this way,
while the Senate Finance Com-
mittee, which George heads, will
start hearings on the subject the
same day.
The House appropriations com-
mittee already is working on Pres-
ident Trumaii's request received
Friday for $16,800,000,000 in mili-
tary and $1,050,000,000 in atomic
funds. Senators will get down to
brats taks on the problem early
in the week. Speedy approval by
both houses is expected.

The common problems of un-
ions throughout the state were
discussed yesterday at the Con-
ference of College Unions held at
the Michigan Union yesterday.
The various union programs
were compared and suggestions
were made for improvement. It
was agreed that the union should
function as the student center of
activities on the campus, and that
it must offer programs aimed to
develop interest in its extra-cur-
ricular activities. The group de-
cided that - the union program
should also be coordinated to offer'

George Predicts

ity New Increases, Senator Warns
WASHINGTON-OP)-A sharp increase in federal taxes next year
"all along the line, on corporations and individuals," was predicted
yesterday by Senator George (D-Ga).
Similar belief was expressed generally on the House side where
the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee expects to start work
early in 1951 on an overall tax bill that may dig deeper into incomes,
as well as raise excise (sales) levies.

THE TAX PICTURE was darkened by the suddenly worsened

UN forces today began withdrawing from a new defense line 30
miles north of Pyongyang before the imminent peril of thousands of

Judge James L. Bleakey, Jr. set

The two students were arrested

WEIR stressed that students and

Chinese Total
500,000 in
Korean War
TOKYO -(R')- General Mac-
Arthur declared yesterday that the
Chinese Communists have commit-.
ted 500,000 soldiers to an unde-
clared war on the United Nations
forces in Korea.
"In addition," he said, "100,000

Students Seek
Signatures for
Peace Petition
A petition addressed to Presi-
dent Truman asking for Big Five
negotiations and restraint from
using the atomic bomb was circu-
lated amonn a Main St. theatre
crowd last night.
The letter was sponsored by
seven individuals, mostly officers
of campusreligious groups.
It said:
"Dear Mr. President: We are
afraid of another war. It must be
prevented!!! 1. We want Big Five
negotiations. 2. We do not want
the atom bomb used."
The idea behind the petition was
formulated Thursday, according to
one of ; the sponsors who was cir-
culating the manuscript. He saId
that a group of students had seen
an advertisement in The Daily for

Council To Hold Zoning Hearings

Tomorrow night, the Ann Ar-
bor. City Council will give final
consideration to a proposal which
may eventually drive many group
houses (fraternities, sororities and
co-ops) out of the top zoned areas
east and south of the campus.
It is the latest in a long series
of petitions to the Council from
householders of the vicinty, all
aimed at getting the houses clear-
ed out of the "A" and "AA" zones
of Ann Arbor. These zones (see
map) cover most of what is known
as the "fraternity area" and con-
tain some of the highest priced
real estate in the city.

IN FEBRUARY, 1949, a similar
proposal was defeated in the
