Mae's Plans
Mean War
A -Marshallf
WASHINGTON - (A') -- Secre-
tary of Defense Marshall gravely
A~warned yesterday that Russia
might enter the Korean war with-
out notice but he declared this
threat would be far greater if the
nation follows the war plans pro-
posed by Gen. Douglas MacArthur.
Warning that MacArthur's plans
would bring open conflict with
Russia closer, he said the Soviets
have massed strong ground and air
forces in the Far East and their
entry into the Korean struggle
would "be a very serious thing."
WITH THIS warning, Marshall
sharply took issue with MacArthur
who testified last week he did not
believe the bombing' of China
woulddraw the Russians into the
conflict-or that the Russians
could wagemuch of a war in the
Far East.
At the same time, Marshall
voiced conicern that MacArthur's
remarks about thousands of cas-
ualties in a bloody Korean
"stalemate" may seriously dam-
age the morale of the United
Nations' combat troops.
He told the Senate Armed Serv-
ices and Foreign Relations Com-
mittees-looking into the causes of
the MacArthur ouster-that there
is the "very real possibility" of
Russia's entry into the Korean
* * *
"LIKE ALL over matters per-
taining to the Soviet government,"
he said, "the decision is of a few
men and can be an instant deci-
sion whenever they choose to make
"They may make it without
any reference to a specific event
and again they may find them-
selves imperiled and therefore
take action to reduce that peril."
He conceded, also, that the TU.S.
policy of building up defenses in
Europe may provoke a war with
Russia. But he insisted the risk
must be taken because this coun-
try has "no choice whatever there."'
Marshall declared Administra-
tion policy in Asia may seem cost-
ly and a stalemate in Korea may
appear the only end. But he added
the cost cannot be compared at all
"to what happens if we get in-
volved in what you might call an
atomic war."
MacArthur has challenged the
Administration policy and called1
for stronger measures against the
Red Chinese-bombing, a blockade
and the use of Chinese NationalistJ

New Police Plan!


Proposed for


1 Russmia


A tentative plan to set up regular police protection for the
campus proper was announced yesterday by University Vice-President
Wilbur K. Pierpont.
Before going into effect, however, the plan must be okayed by
the Board of Regents and the City Council, and sufficient funds must
be allocated from the 1951-52 budget, yet to be completed.
THE SPECIAL police force, along with officers of the present
Ann Arbor department, would be deputized as agents of the Board
of Regents. In this capacity, they would enforce University rules and
police University property.
Pierpont emphasized thgt specific duties have not been
worked out yet, since the plan is so tentative. He did say, how-




ever, that the campus-area traff

U.S. Grants
New Tariff
ted States has granted sweeping
new tariff concessions to 17 West-
ern countries in another major
move to expand world commerce.
Reduced duties covering $419,-
271,000 in foreign shipments to the
United States will start goinginto
effect June 6 under the new in-
ternational agreements.
AT THE SAME time, existing
low rates will be maintained on
$58,305,600 in foreign imports.
In return, foreign govern-
ments have agreed to cut tariffs
or keep from hiking rates on
$1,157,000,000 of American prod-
This country reduced its levies
on many articles ranging from
metals in short supply here to
certain foods. It won concessions
for sale abroad of many American
farm products, chemicals and ma-
chinery among other things..
THE NEW agreements, an-
nounced by the State Department,
were negotiated during a seven-
month tariff conference at Tor-
quay, England, which ended April'
Thirty-four nations, account-
ing for 80 per cent of world
commerce, attended the meet.
Western Germany and Canada
won the biggest concessions from
the United' States and in turn
granted the most substantial re-
ductions to American products.
Western Germany was included
for the first time in such tariff-
cutting agreements.

ic problem would be one of the
most important handled by the
projected force.
"We must have some police on
University parking lots. There is
no regular enforcement now, and
the problem is a serious one,"
Pierpont asserted.

OTHER matters to be handled
through the added police protec-
tion will be determined after plans
reach a less tentative state, he
said. It is not yet known whether
enforcement of student .conduct
regulations lie among these.
The agreement was reached
following nearly eight months
of discussion between city and
University officials. At the pres-
ent, the University pays the
city annually the equivalent of
about seven policemen's salaries
--approximately $28,000.
Alderman John S. Dobson,
spokesman for the city in the
negotiations, estimated that six
to eight patrolmen would be
needed for adequate protection.
This would be on a 24-hour basis.
* * *
UNIVERSITY parking lots could
.be patrolled by two or three men
in Three-wheeled motorcycles, Dob-
son proposed, whose mobility
would make them available in
case of an emergency.
Dobson also intimated that in-,
stallation of the new force might
mean a crackdown on unwarrant-
ed automobiles in the campus
area. "There are probably be-
tween 1,000 and 1,500 cars that
have no business there at all," he

The boys, 17 and 18 years old,
were rounded up with the aid of
an unidentified University stu-

Jim White, '51, a Delt, said he
saw the boys unload from three
cars about 9 p.m., gather rocks
from the front lawn and toss them
through the windows. The boyst
allegedly caused $160 damage.
All suspects were released in

U.S. Claims
Soviet Stall
* * i
Halts Treaty
States accused Russia yesterday
of trying to "stall" preparations for
an early Japanese peace treaty
and brusquely rejected a Soviet
proposal to turn the task over to
a Pacific Big Four.
Moscow advanced the proposal
Monday, and included Communist
China along with Russia, the U.S.
and Britain as the four powers
which should laydown the terms
for a World War II settlement with
The State Department brushed
the idea aside with this comment:
"It is a mockery to pretend that to
negotiate a Japanese peace under
these conditions would actually
produce peace."
What Moscow is seeking, the de-
partment charged, is a "double
veto" by including Communist
China among the Big Four.
The State Department made
plain that the United States in-
tends to go ahead with moves now
in progress with 14 other non-
Communist countries to complete
the Japanese settlement, possibly
this summer.

TOKYO--(P)-The Communists
fell back on all fronts in Korea
today amid growing reports of
friction between Red China and
Russia over conduct of the war.
Mounting Allied pressure shoved
them back over the same terrain
the Reds had to buy with blood of
more than 80,000 men.
officers told AP correspondent J'
Becker the Chinese Reds hac
wanted to unleash a mighty smash
in early April with 600P00 men,
3,000 Russian-promised planes and
hundreds of tanks.
The Red tanks and planes
never showed up. The Allies
drove into North Korea. Beck-
er said it got to the point where
the 600,000 Reds had no choice
but to let fly their planned of-
fensive anyway. So it started-
April 22.
Officers pointed out to Becker
that the Reds achieved the veiy
breakthrough they had wanted in
a move to split and' destroy the
United Nations divisions. But Rus-
sia hadn't come through with the
tanks and planes needed to finish
the job.
THE CHINA foot soldier offen-
sive ran out of gas in a week. To-
day the Red retreat was general
all across the Korean peninsula.
Hard-fighting South Korean
troops pushed them back in the
West and East. The Reds with-
drew ahead of far-ranging Allied
patrols in the center.

The tradition which has de-

its beginning in 1935, when the

started, with Theta Delta Chi

the proverbial bacon.

declared during the war years, but

Bias Debate Opens Fraternity Week

* * * *

Fraternity Week was "kicked
off" last night %vith a moderate
bang as a six-man panel discussed
bias clauses before a disappointing
crowd of about 100 in Rackham
The debate proceeded largely on
an academic plane, with little
emotionalization of the inflamma-
tory issues involved. All represen-
tatives seemed to agree that bias
clauses should go-the main bone
of contention was the means to be
employed in this end.
* * *
fending the Interfraternity Coun-
cil viewpoint, declared that, in the
eyes of fraternity men, the pres-
ent pressures for removal of the
clauses come from "dogmatic cam-
pus politicians."

"Discriminatory attitudes of fra-
ternity men permeate the cam-
pus," he said.,
"Discrimination is now consid-
ered a small crime-like petty lar-
ceny. Fraternities must keep in
step with society or else wither
away and die," he asserted.
* * *
BILL McINTYRE, '52, former
Student Legislator, pointed out
that in every case where the IFC
had taken action by itself to
tackle the discrimination problem,
it had been done under pressure
from the campus.
"The SL time limit motion is
designed to help fraternities over-
come the opposition of alumni and
Southern chapters to removing
their clauses at national conven-

"This is a matter of people to
people relationships, not govern-
ment," he told them. "When peo-
ple are starving they do not care
for propaganda goodwill such as
'The Voice of America,' they want
tangible evidence of friendship
such as you students have shown."
