Large Red Force
Moving to Front
MacArthur Suggests Possibility
Of New Enemy Counter-Attack
TOKYO-(1P)-General MacArthur said today the Chinese Red
Third Field Army is moving "a large force of several corps" down the
mountainous middle of Korea for a possible counter-offensive.
This was the first indication that the Third Field Army had
shifted in force from northeast Korea to the central front to reinforce
the Chinese Fourth Field Army.
BETWEEN NINE AND 12 fresh or rehabilitated Chinese divisions
already are in the battle area with tanks and cavalry, the United
Nations Commander announced.
Snow up to six inches blanketed the battlefront where Allied
troops advanced slowly today-the 14th day of "operation killer."
In the first 12 days, 22,253 Chi-

Inquiry Involves
Two Large Loans
WASHINGTON - ()') - An in-
vestigating senator told yesterday
of evidence that Sen. Murray (D-
Mont.) plugged for a $1,000,000
Reconstruction Finance Corpora-
tion loan to a Miami Beach hotel
'which netted one of Murray's sons
a lawyer's fee. Testimony involved
a second son.
The Senate inquiry also released
testimony taken privately that
Donald Dawson, a White House
aide, and other politicians had en-
joyed visits to Florida as non-
paying guests of another Miami
Beach hotel, the Saxony, which
orrowed $1,500,000 from RFC.
" THE SAXONY, where the tariff
starts at $30 a day for single
guests, is one of the fanciest es-
tablishments in Miami Beach.
The names of Sen. Murray and
his sons were brought into the
inquiry by Sen. Bennett (R-
Utah), member of the Senate
Banking Subigommittee, which
is investigating three hotel loans
at the Florida playground.
Bennett said the subcommittee
had learned Sen. Murray wrote a
letter in 1949 urging approval of a
$1,000,000 RFC loan to the Sor-
rento Hotel of Miami Beach.

SAC To Decide
On 'Bias Clause'
The chances of the Student Af-
fairs Committee reaching a deci-
sion on the Student Legislature's
"bias clause" resolution yesterday
were described by a SAC member
as "highly probable."
The SAC which will meet in a
special session had deferred ac-
tion on the resolution last Tues-
day because of a crowded agenda
and desire to give. the measure ad-
ditional study.
The resolution calls for the SAC
to. enforce a time limit within
which all campus groups must re-

Hike Length
Of Service
By 3 Months
Test Vote Passes
By 55-31 Margin
WASHINGTON-(P) - A 55 to
31 test in the Senate yesterday
set the stage for voting a draft of
18 year olds.
Also, the Senate approved ex-
tending draftee service from 21
months to 24.
" " "
THE TEST on the age issue
came in the rejection of a com-
promise, offered by Senator Morse
(R-Ore), to draft no one under
18 and one half years old. The
minimum age now is 19.
In the sharp debate that led
up to the vote, Senator Taft (R-
Ohio) vigorously backed Morse's
plan and accused Secretary of
Defense Marshall of trying to
"blackjack" Congress into draft-
ing 18 year olds.
It appeared probable the Sen-
ate would vote on the question of
the 18 year olds tomorrow or
THE EXTENSION of draftee
service to 24 months was agreed
to on a voice vote. The military
high command had asked that

Credit Polic y
The literary college faculty yes-
terday voted to reinstate the policy
of granting four hours credit for
basic training to men who have
served at least 90 days in the ac-
tive military service.
This ruling which was in effect
during the war years was suspend-
ed in 1947 after military service
ceased to be a compulsion.
In explaining the reinstatement,
Asst. Dean of the literary college
James H. Robertson said the fac-
ulty felt that conditions similar to
those existing during World War II
exist today.
Furthermore, he added, there
are several aspects of military
training which may be properly
taken into account for credit
toward a college degree.
The new ruling is intended for
the benefit of present and future
servicemen, but is retroactive to
There is no general limit, how-)

A $2,500,000 women's athletic building, complete with the long
awaited swimming pool, will be constructed in the near future, accord-
ing to University officials.
Preliminary plans call for a one million dollar swimming pool unit
to be built first, Prof. H. O Crisler, athletic director, revealed. The
exact date for starting the construction has not been set.

THE BUILDING will be constructed on the southeast corner of

Lester F. Etter, public relations manager for the athletic depart-

"I'm not positive of the exact location of the proposed building,"
Etter said. "Its construction will be sometime in the future and it's
hard to say exactly about some

Spring P
A surprising total of 375 frater-
nity pledges for the spring semes-
ter was announced yesterday by
the Office of Student Affairs.
Only 393 were signed up for
rushing, which means that 95 per
cent of the rushees were pledged to
a fraternity, a phenomenal per-
centage, according to Bruce Sodee,
'52, rushing chairman for the In-
ter-Fraternity Council.
Following in alphabetical order
are the 41 fraternities with their
respective pledges:

Zoning Lain
A thorough restudy of Ann Ar-
bor's ,zoning problem was called
for last night by Paul R. Kempf,
president of the Ann Arbor Board
of Public Works.
Kempf asked that the proposed
zoning law being studied by the
Common Council be tabled and a
special committee be appointed to
study all aspects of local zoning.
He spoke at a public hearing be-
fore the council.j
UNDER A SIMILAR plan, also
proposed, no fraternity or sorority
would be allowed to purchase
land, or build or remodel their
house until the study is complete.
This would essentially be the
plan Ann Arborites first sug-
gested when they petitioned the
council to prohibit group houses
from expanding in the exclu-
sive A and AA residential zones.
The plan now before the council
would establish a special A-1
zone designed for fraternity and
sorority houses.
Council members also listened
to discussion on an amendment
to the A-1 proposal which would

The Big Four Foreign Ministers
Conference which got under way
in Paris yesterday will not result
in a solution of any of the world's
major Issues, Prof. Preston Slos-
son of the history department as-
serted last night.
Prof. Slosson said that Russia
has called the Conference because
she js genuinely alarmed about
a remilitarized Germany and be-
cause she is anxious to settle
some of the minor difficulties in
East-West relations such as an
Austrian peace treaty.
sia is faking about her desire for
world disarmament. If the Sov-
iets were really sincere about
world-wide disarmament t h e y
would have accepted the proposal
for a world census of armed
forces and non-atomic weapons
which was put before the United
Nations last week."
Russia, however, will probab-
ly mask her refusal to accept
the UN proposal by declaring
that she could not agree to it
because it did not also provide
for a census of atomic weapons,
Prof. Slosson said.
"Undoubtedly Russia will put
forth a plan for a united and de-
militarized Germany. If it is
possible to create a genuine Ger-
man buffer state, the West should
agree to the plan."
In such a case the West would
have to be extremely wary of se-
cret Russian armament of Ger-
many as Russia did with the eas-
tern European nations after the
last war, he added.
Bus Ad Elections
To Conclude Today
Business Administration Coun-
cil elections will continue'through
4 p.m. today after a heavy open-
ing day turnout yesterday.
Though no official count was
taken, election officials estimated
that many more ballots were cast
yesterday than on first days of
past elections.


Prof. Crisler said the struc-
ture had been authorized by
the Board of Regents and the
Board in Control of Intercolle-
giate Athletics. Three architects,
Lee and Kenneth C. Black of
Lansing and Alden Dow of Mid-
land, are now working on plans
for the building.
"We have funds now for the
pool unit only," Prof. Crisler said.
"We'll leave the rest of the pro-
ject to be constructed when we
get the money.
"THE $1,000,000 available for
the construction of the pool re-
sulted in part from the profits, of
the University's intercollegiate
athletics program, principally foot-
ball receipts," he explained.
Several student drives through
the years also have added to
the million dollar fund. Out-
standing among these is Michi-
gras which turned $3,050 into
the fund coffers last spring.
However, Crisler said that they
are going to proceed and draw
plans for the full building. "We
have to look forward to the even-
tual loss through age of Water-
man and Barbour Gymnasiums."
Tentative plans for the swim-
ming pool unit call for a three.
story building, housing a six lane
pool, 75 by 44 feet and adequate
locker and shower facilities.
* * *
"WE HAVE considered estimates
that include spectator space for
300 to 1,500 persons," Prof.. Mar-
garet Bell, chairman of the de-
partment of physical education
for women, declared.
The remainder of the build-.
ing which will be constructed
at a later date will contain two
gymnasiums with enough floor
space to interchange indoor and
outdoor physical education ac-
Other facilities forthe building
would include therapeutic gym-
nastic equipment, small games
rooms, class rooms, special facili-
ties for a teacher education pro-
gram', offices, staff rooms, locker
facilities and a possible laboratory.
* * *
THE LACK OF swimming pool
facilities for women has been for
a long time a problem with
the women's athletic department.
Women have been forced to prac-
tice their aquatic abilities in the
Union pool, I-M. Bldg. pool. or a
small tank in Barbour Gymna-
"As many as 400 or 500 women
have registered for swimming in
a - single semester in the past,"
Prof. Bell said. "Many have to be
turned down for lack of facilities.
