a brilliant pitching duel yesterday
as the American League cham-

the opening game of the World

HIS OPPONENT, Konstanty,
starting his first game since 1948,
more than repaid Manager Eddie
Sawyer for his daring gamble in
entrusting the big task to him, but
no living pitcher could have beaten
the Raschi throwing for the Bomb-

Konstanty allowed only four
hits before he was lifted for a
pinch-hitter in the Phillies'
eighth, but one of them was a

Stalin Parley
By Stassen
State Department
Denies Sanction
WASHINGTON - (P) - Harold
E. Stassen announced yesterday
he has written Soviet Premier Sta-
lin suggesting a face-to-face meet-
ing in an effort "to stop the drift
toward war."
The State Department quickly
disowned Stassen's move as hav-
ing any official status. A spokes-
man said, however, that Stassen
would undoubtedly be granted a
passport if he asks one to carry
out his proposed mission.
STASSEN TOLD a news con-
ference he wrote Stalin on Mon-
day, strongly urging the Soviet
dictator to change the Soviet Un-
ion's present policy "and move to-
ward world peace and freedom
for mankind." The letter strongly
criticized the Kremlin for "refusal
to cooperate in stopping" the Ko-
rean aggression, and on other

Stassen said he had discussed
the idea "generally" with Gen.
Dwight D. Eisenhower before
sending the letter to the Krem..
lin via the Soviet Embassy here.

Anderson (D-NM), executive vice
chairman of the Democratic Na-
tional Committee, commented:
"The initiative of any such pro-
ject properly belongs with the
State Department."
Similarly, Senator Elmer Tho-
mas (D-Okla) declared. "Under
our constitution, the President has
the first, second and last word
on foreign affairs. I am sure Stalin
knows this, and I don't think he
would deal with anyone except
the President or someone author-
ized to speak for him."
President Truman has repeated-
ly said he would welcome Stalin
in Washington, but has made it
clear that he will not again go
half way across the world to meet
the Soviet leader.
Storm Moving
Over Atlantic
WASHINGTON -- (') - A hur-
ricane packing 100 mile an hour
winds at its center moved north-
east in the Atlantic yesterday,
roughly parallel to the New Eng-
land coast but with the fiercest
part of the storm several hundred
miles out at sea.
The weather bureau here said
that at 3:30 p.m. the storm center
was about 340 miles east-southeast
of Nantucket, Mass., and was ad-
vancing northeastward at 25 to 30
miles an hour.
The big blow had spared the
Carolina coast and had given Ber-
muda nothing worse than lashing
rain squalls.

Daily Reunion Saturday
Will Honor 'Old-Timrers'

"In my day-" will become a by-

General Strike.
VIENNA-VP)-Western intelli-
gence sources declared last night
that a Communist general strike
was a flop and Cominform agents
had ordered the discard of plans
for an Austrian putsch.
Tens of thousands of Austrian
workers and police in the Soviet
zone courageously fought Commu-
nists hand-to-hand at the gates
of factories and railroad stations
in touch-and-go battles and turn-
ed the attempted strike into a rout.
Last night a comparatively small
crowd of about 5,000 Communists
held an orderly meeting before the
Vienna city hall in what was to
have been the climax of a dis-
order - provoking demonstration.
Less than an hour after the meet-
ing began little groups on the
fringe of the gathering were slip-
ping away.
The source said this was a good
indication the Russians are not
ready to start any serious trouble
in Europe.
Before the strike began at mid-
night, high U.S. Army sources had
predicted that the Communists
intended to create an impression
of disorder and, if they drew
enough popular support, seize
government buildings as a demon-
stration of their ability to upset
the government.

ALTHOUGH most of the alumni
have, since their Daily days, taken
newspaper, publicity or advertising
positions, the reunion will also be
attended by a woman lawyer, a
life insurance salesman and the
merchandising manager of a

The reunion will begin at 10

can view The Daily's new rotary
press in operation. For many,
this will be an initial visit to the
Publications Building, which was
built in 1931.

which has been included in the
anniversary program, the alumni
and present staff members will at-
tend a reunion banquet at 6 p.m.
in the Union.
Speakers at tht banquet will be
Chester M. Campbell, treasurer of
the Chicago Tribune and Lee A.

the Detroit News.
The reunion will conclude with a
reception at the Washtenaw

SL To Help
In 'Crusade'
Scroll Drive'
The Student Legislature voted
to conduct a campus-wide cam-
paign for signatures to the Cru-
sade For Freedom scroll in a regu-
lar meeting last night.
The proposal was passed unani-
mously, although warm debate la-
ter developed over a similar mo-
tion, made by Student Legislator
Gordon MacDougal, '52, that the
SL simultaneously conduct a drive
for signatures to the Stockholm
Peace Appeal.
IMMEDIATELY, Legislators rose
to attack the proposal and the
Stockholm Peace Appeal itself.
The Appeal, one member pointed
out, had been branded as "strictly
a communist propaganda stunt"
by the Attorney General.
"We know what this Peace
Appeal means," another Legisla-
tor said, "it means peace the
way\a person means peace when
he smiles and then kicks some-
one in the teeth."
MacDougal, hurrying to defend
his motion, struck back.
"The Crusade For Freedom is
backed by the nation's leading re-
actionaries," he said. "General
Lucius Clay (national chairman of
the Crusade) has a notorious
Fascist record in Germany."
FURTHER, MacDougal contin-
ued, it is extremely difficult to
speak out for World Peace in the
U.S., because there are large
groups, the militarists and manu-
facturers, in the country who want
Notwithstanding, the SL voted
down the motion 34 to 5.
As part of its Crusade for
Freedom drive, the SL issued a
call for volunteers to help them
conduct the campaign.
"Freedom scrolls will be circulat-
ed through all residence halls and
housing units," Walt Oberreit, '51,
Student Legislator, said. "There
will also be a booth on the diag-
onal from 9 to 4 p.m. Oct. 10 and
11,' Oberreit added, "and we es-
pecially need students to man the
diagonal scrolls."
Anyone interested should call
from 3 to 5 p.m. weekdays at the
SL office, 1025 Administration
Building, Oberreit continued.
Each signature obtained during
the Crusade will be permanently
enshrined in the base of the Free-
dom Bell in Berlin, he said. Dedi-
cation ceremonies will take place
on United Nations Day. Oct. 24.

West Votes
Down Soviet
Gives Tacit OK
To ParalLel Leap
United Nations Political Commit-
tee last night approved, 47 to 5
(Soviet bloc), an eight-power plan
for uniting and rebuilding Korea
under a stronger UN commission.
The Committee gave tacit ap-
proval for UN forces to cross the
38th parallel to put down North
Korean aggression.
Without further talk, the com-
mittee voted down a Soviet bloc
plan which had been tagged by
Britain as a way for the UN to
"wash its hands" of its responsi-
bilities in Korea. The final vote
was 5 in favor (Soviet bloc), 46
opposed and 8 abstaining.
THIS completed action on Ko-
rea in the committee and the is-
sue now goes to the General As.

day, the Political Committee beat
down a Russian protest against
American bombings in North Ko-

THE COMMITTEE also agreed
to deal with Russian proposals
for a big power peace pact and
one-third reduction in armed
forces of the big powers after the
American item is finished.
The Korean question went
through the Committee at high
speed, delegates commenting
that events in Korea made fast
action necessary.
The decision came amidst specu-
lation on Communist China's
plans if and when U.S. troops un-
der General Douglas MacArthur
cross the 38th parallel into North
Korea. South Korean troops have
done so but no United States or
other members of the UN forces
have gone into the northern zones.
SECRETARY of State Dean
Acheson indicated at a news con-
ference as the vote was taken that
he does not expect Communist
China to intervene in Korea. Ask-
ed what he thought about that
possibility, he said it seems any
group looking to the world for
recognition would hesitate to do
anything that would challenge UN

COLUMBUS, 0.- () - Sec-

Addressing the interstate con-
ference of employment security
agencies Tobin said: "If we ex-
