Republicans immediately raised
a cry of "terrible injustice."

Pro fessors Deny
A complicated attempt to link two University professors vith a
group listed by the House Un-American Activities Committee as a tool
in the Communist "peace offensive" drew two quick and decisive
blasts from the implicated men today.
Philip L. Schenk and Leroy Waterman, both professors emeritus,
were listed in yesterday's Detroit Times as sponsors of the American
Committee for the Protection of the Foreign Born, a group whose
other sponsors included the Rev. Burt Bouwman.
Mr. Bouwman, the Times said, was also i sponsor of the Commit-

'Slanted' Newsi
Coverage Hit
"The American press is deliber-
ately presenting a completely dis-
torted picture;of news events in
Eastern Europe," Peter Furst,
Reuters correspondent just back
from five years in the Balkans, de-
clared last night.
Speaking on "Press Coverage in
the Balkans," at a meeting of the
campus Council of the Arts, Sci-
ences and Professions, Furst
charged that American news-
papers, as a result of the Cold War,
refuse to print anything favorable
about the Eastern European na-
"Foreign correspondents are in-
structed to cover Eastern Europe
objectively - from the. western
point of view," the veteran news-
man asserted.

dispatches towards the western
pointdof view are quickly fired, he

Times revealed that its sponsors,
including the two professors, had
been listed this week in the Daily
Worker, official voice of the U. S.
Communist Party.
Pointing to the vague nature
of the implied linkage of the
two groups, Prof. Waterman'
said that his group, the APFB,
was certainly not in favor of
The former semitics professor
said the organization is "trying to
protect the legal rights of the for-
eign born when the government
overrides those rights."
DENYING THAT the interlock-
ing sponsorships indicated his po-
litical affiliations, Prof. Schenk
said that he would "pay no at-
tention" -to the smear.
Calling the Times' attempt to
tie the ACPFB to the "subver-
sive" Committee for Peaceful
Alternatives "absolutely ridicu-
lous," Schenk said there were
definitely no Communists in his
At the same time, members of
the Society for Peaceful Alterna-

group, denied any connection with
the similarly named organization
on the House Committee's list.

Sixty Billion
Asked for
War Needs
Truman told Congress yesterday
the nation needs a $60 billio
military budget to continue arming
for the general war Russia ma
thrust upon the world.
He said that the $60,679,414,690
he estimated for the fiscal year,
begining next July 1, was "essentia
to our national security" because:
"The outbreak of aggression, the
threat of general war, that over-
hangs the world, make it impera-
tive to increase our defenses rapid-
ly and efficiently."

THE PRESIDENT put a note of
warning into his message of what
Russia may expect if she elects to
spread the war beyond the con-
fines of the Korean conflict. He
said: "If the Soviet Union chooses
to unleash a genei-al war, the
free world must be in a position to
stop the attack and strike back de-
cisively and quickly at the seats of
Soviet power."
Pres. Truman continued, "The
aggression in Korea showed that
the Soviet rulers were willing to
push the world to the brink of a
general war to get what they

made in his arguments for firing
Gen. Douglas MacArthur, the
President declared that "we want
to keep the conflict in Korea from
spreading, if possible, because we
are trying to stop aggression with-
out starting a third World War."
He previously had contended in his
MacArthur-firing statement that
some of the Korean war strategy
ascribed to MacArthur might bring
Russia into the Asiatic conflict and
start general war.
In Korea, the President said,
Allies have "checked the plans of
Americau fighting men and their
Allies have "checked the plans of
