United States and Britain yester-
day endorsed a proposal by 13 As-

the United Nations to see if there
can be a cease fire in Korea.
The United States, however,
barred any political decisions on
the Far East until a cease fire is
in full effect.
THE PROPOSAL was laid be-
before the UN Assembly's Political
Committee by India's-Sir Benegal

that China apparently is movingj
toward a Monroe Doctrine for the

New Letter
By' President
Stirs Wrath
Truman Attacks
Louisiana Politics
Truman, the trigger-tempered let-
ter writer,has dashed off another,
one-deploring the "low" state of
politics in the recent campaign.
It was addressed to Rep. Hebert
(D-La), a states' righter and cri-
tic of the administration, who
promptly replied that this display
of "political distemper" was re-
* . .*
IT ALL started Dec. 5 when
Hebert wrote asking the President
to appoint a day of prayer that
Providence would endow officials
with the wisdom and courage to
make the right decisions in the
present world crisis.
In a two paragraph reply on
Dec. 7, Truman called attention
to his Thanksgiving Proclama-
tion urging prayers for peace,
and said he believed that "ef-
fectively answers your sugges-
The President then added:
"I am extremely sorry that the
sentiments expressed in your let-
ter were not thought of before No-
vember 7, when the campaign in
your state, Utah, North Carolina,
Illinois and Indiana was carried on
in a manner that was as low as
I've ever seen and I've been in this
game since 1906."
* * *
Herbert wrote Truman :
"I am stunned by the con-
tents of your letter, of Dec. 7 in
reply to my letter of Dec. 5.
"It is indeed exceedingly regret-
table that you failed to grasp the
real purpose and intent of my
suggestion, but it is even more re-
grettable that you saw fit to gra-
tuitously inject political distemper
in your reply."
Truman's letter was written one
day after he threatened to beat
up a Washington Post music cri-
tic for saying his daughter Mar-
garet's voice was flat.

Decide Election

vote recount was opened here late
Former Gov. Harry F. Kelly and
other GOP leaders admittedly were
ready to call it quits barring a ma-
jor upset of canvass returns in
the 67 out-countyWayne precincts.
Behind their reasoning was the
knowledge that Democratic Gov.
G. Mennen Williams held a 4,101
vote margin with roughly three
fourths of the nearly 1,900,000}
votes recounted.
With the count complete in 3,201
of the State's 4,355 precincts re-
counted, these were the totals:
Williams (D) 934,213
Kelly (R) 930,112
For the first time since the re-
count got under way Dec. 2, Kelly
picked up a big chunk of votes in
one of the first of the "priority"
precincts checked.
A total of 649 ballots were
thrown out in nearby Nankin
township precinct over vigorous
protests by Democratic leaders.- Of
these 432 were for Williams, 210
for Kelly and seven had no vote
for governor.
The invalidated, ballots appar-
ently had been initialed on the
corners before the corners were
torn off. Only three ballots in the
entire precinct were allowed.

der, '53L, argued against action
by the SL or the University.

THE SL motion if passed would
have the Student Affairs Commit-
tee deny recognition to any cam-
pus group which, by 1956, had not
eliminated bias clauses from its
constitution. The SAC could grant
yearly extensions to this time li-
mit if the group could prove that
there was a substantial probability
that the clause would be elimi-
nated in the near future.
Dawson argued that it would
be a wise move for the SL to
pass and the University to en-
force removal of discrimination
clauses because it would force
action at the group's national
Johnstone countered, saying that
the time limit in the SL motion
would be unfair to many house
groups which were sincerely in-
terested in removing the -clauses
but couldn't because of opposition
at the national level.",
BLUMROSEN emphasized that
the SL motion is aimed at dis-
crimination, not at fraternities.
"Fraternities are now under
pressure with attacks mounting
each year. Removal of the dis-
crimination clauses would elim-
inate a wide area of attack on

The trial of Robert H. Stacy,

him by his attorney, Leonard H.

HE ADMITTED setting the
blaze soon after his arrest on Oct.

fessions, according to police.

with picking a circuit court
jury to hear the case.
Circuit Court Judge James R.

The statement came after two
days of testimony from trade
school operators dealing with the
practices of furnishing tools to
trainees at government expense.
He said arrangements and agree-
ments between manufacturers,
supply houses and school oper-
ators "resulted in some detriment
to the government in the form of
higher costs for these tools than
would have been necessary."

Committee Plans
Strict Draft Law
Army called yesterday for a to-
tal of 160,000 draftees in January
and February, nearly doubling the
quotas it had announced previous-
ly for that period.I
It acted in line with President
Truman's decision that the U.S.
must raise its military manpower
sights beyond the goal set before
the recent reverses in Korea,
2,800,000 men by next June 30.

JANUARY'S QUOTA was'raised
from 40,000 to 80,000 and that for
February from 50,000 to 80,000.
The Navy and Air Force continued

Selective Service Headquarters
said the Army's increased calls
would require the states to dip
at a faster pace into the pool of
men now subject to the draft.
This pool is composed of those
aged 19 to 25, inclusive.

the new January and February
quotas could be filled without

In Emergency
WASHINGTON- (M)-Military
reservists all over the country are
asking: "What happens to us if
President -Truman declares a na-
tional emergency?"
Defense Department officials,
asked to clarify the situation, ex-
pressed the following views today:
1. The October "slow-down"
policy in calling reserves to active
duty, though technically still in
effect, is not being carried out as
originally planned, because of the
pressure of events in Korea.
2. If a national emergency is de-
clared, this might be the occasion
for throwing the "slow-down" pol-
icy out the window entirely.
3. But a declaration of national
emergency would not, in itself, re-
quire reservists to report for ac-
tice duty. It would not automati-
cally mean the mobilization of re-
servists. The Army, Navy and Air
I Force would continue to use their
