Clear Statements

asked Gen. Douglas MacArthur t
inform Washington in the future
of any statements he intends tc
make having political importance
I. There is general agreement
among State Department, Defense
Department and White House
_ authorities, it was said, that the
measure was necessary.
* * *
IT IS INTENDED to try to pre-
vent a recurrence of the situation
which developed when MacArthur
made a public declaration before
visiting the Korean front last Sat.
At that time, without inform-
ing Washington, the United Na-
tions Commander offered to
meet the Communist Command-
er-In-Chief in the field for
truce talks.
MacArthur at the same time
raised, at least by implication, the
possibility that the UN might
change' its policy and authorize
attacks on Chinese Military bases
and on China's coastal areas.
* * *
subsequently disclosed that what
I MacArthur said had not been dis-
patched to Washington before-
There was a round of top-level
conferences on Saturday involv-
ing state and defense officials
and authorities at the White
House, Including Secretary Ach-
eson and President Truman.
The message which was report-
ed last night to have been sent
to MacArthur was descrikd as a
request to him to inform Wash-
ington -before making any such
declaration in the future.
Officials here said that he was
already under instructions, re-
affirmed in a general directive
circulated by President Truman
last December, to clear political
statements in Washington.
The latest word to MacArthur
served in effect as a reminder of
this standing instruction.
McGee Appeal
'Denied Again
The Supreme Court yesterday
denied a hearing to Willie McGee,
Mississippian sentenced to the
electric chair for the assault of a
white woman, the Associated Press
This marks the fourth times that
the high court has refused to con-
sider the case. McGee has been
convicted three times in Missis-
sippi courts.
The Court rendered its decision
in the face of a nation-wide cam-
paign to have McGee released
from the death sentence. A com-
mittee to save McGee had, been
formed on this campus and was
active in soliciting students to re-
quest federal officials to act in
behalf of McGee.
The committee also sponsored a
talk by Mrs. Willie McGee at Lane

Hall several weeks ago.

'U' Finances
Small colleges are going to have
a difficult time making ends meet,
but the University is also in a pre-
carious financial position, Marvin
L. Niehuss, vice-president of the
University said yesterday.
Niehuss greeted sympathetically
news that five church-related
Michigan colleges have banded to-
gether in a drive to seek $500,000
to bridge deficits of this and the
next school year.
* *
"I CAN SEE the necessity for
such a campaign," Niehuss said,
"especially in these critical times
when the outlook for smaller col-
leges is bleak."
On the other hand, he contin-
ued, the University itself-which
faces essentially the same prob-I
lems-won't be able to solve itsI
financial troubles without heavy
legislative support.
"We also have to take into ac-
count the trend toward higher
pricesand higher wages," he ex-
next ss s ea.
