Mac Almost
Split Allies
- Marshall
tary of Defense Marshall declared
yesterday that Gen. Douglas Mac-
Arthur's war proposals had
threatened to split the United Na-
tions Allies and force the United
States to "go it alone" in Korea.
..tHe told senators the five-star
General's outspoken opposition to
the Truman Administration's Kor-
-ean policy raised the issue of
"what voice spoke from this coun-
try on foreign policy."
* * *
"BY HIS public statements,"
r. Marshall testified, "he set up a
very serious reaction among our
Allies, which threatened our col-
r lective action with them, and
which threatened our position .in
the world in relation to this great
crisis, and which threatened to
leave us in a situation of going
it alone."
He denied, however, that for-
eign governments had dictated
MacArthur's removal by Presi-
dent Truman or had even sug-
gested such a step.
He spent most of his time ex-
plaining to the Senate Armed
Services and Foreign Relations
Committees the steps which led
to the ouster.
And he will return again today
to be queried by senators who have
not yet had the chance to ques-
tion him.
THIS WAS Marshall's third day
behind closed doors to defend the
Administration's Asia policies and
the firing of MacArthur who laid
his case before the group last
week. As in the case of MacAr-
thur,. the Secretary's testimony is
being censored to prevent security
violations before the transcript is
made public.
MacArthur wanted to hit the
Chinese Reds harder by a naval
blockade, air operations over
Manchuria and the use of Chin-
ese Nationalist troops. The Ad-
ministration seeks to confine
the war to Korea., hoping to in-
flict such casualties of the foe
there as will induce him to
make peace.
In essence, Marshall said the
historic dispute boils down to a
clash of opinion over what Rus.-
sia can and will do in the Far

House COmmittee Voes
3 Billion Tax Increvae
WASHINGTON-")-A $3,000,000,900 increase in individual in-

The plan, still subject to House and Senate approval, would raise

the rates in each surtax bracket by

To Address
'51 Graduates
Ralph Bunche, director of the
United Nations trusteeship de-
partment and winner of the No-
bel Peace Prize, will speak at
commencement exercises here,
June 16.
For the second year, the cere-
monies will be held in the 97,000
seat Michigan Stadium if the
weather permits. In case of in-
clement weather, the exercises
will take place in Yost Field
. . .

MacARTHUR does not believe
Russia can wage a strong war in
Asia xand he is willing to risk
Soviet entry into the Korean War
by bombing China.
The Administration believes
Russia has strong forces in Asia
which might come to China's
aid and create the threat of a
world-wide atomic war.
Giving his own views on the
voice of authority, Marshall said:
"The important aspect of the
matter is there can be only one
voice-there cen be one voice-
Constitutional and otherwise in
the decisions as to the foreign
policy at the time they are given
"I don't mean by that that you
don't debate them up here but
you cannot have two voices."

Hill Region
Blacked Out
Darkness reigned in the Obser-
vatory Hill area last night as a
short circuit in the University
power system shut off electricity
to men's and women's dormitories,'
the University Terrace Apart-
ments and research laboratories in
the district.
Studies ended abruptly for ap-
proximately 1,500 women students
in Alice Lloyd Hall, Mosher-Jor-
dan and Stockwell shortly before
11 p.m. when a distribution box
near the main power plant carry-
ing 2,300 volts of electricity blew
up. In addition to the Terrace
Apartments, Victor Vaughn House,
men's residence, the Food Service
Building, the old West Hospital
building group and Simpson Me-
morial Hospital were cut off from
electric service.
POLICE SAID the short circuit
occurred when Jack Henderson,
49-year-old plant department em-
Sploye accidently crossed two live
wires in the control pit of the
power house. He was taken to
the University Hospital suffering
from first and second degree flash
His condition was reported as
"good" but hospital authorities
were holding him for obeserva-
tion until mornini.
University Hospital was not af-
fected. Both the West Hospital
group and Simpson Memorial Hos-
pital are research laboratories
which are not used for operating
or patient care.

appear in the women's residence
windows as exam-conscious stu-
dents attempted to get in a few
last licks of study. Other coeds
used flashlights and cigarette
lighters to complete preparations
for bed.
An unidentified coed was
trapped in an elevator between
the fourth and fifth floors of
Mosher-Jordan for almost an
hour. She was finally extricated
through the ceiling trap door
of the car by means of a ladder
lowered from the attic.
House mothers reported that
the women took the situation in
stride. They said that they had
been warned of a power shut off
which was scheduled for around
midnight butthat the earrly cut
off had taken them by surprise.
Plant 'department officials re-
fused to comment on the sched-
uled cut off.
A plant department crew began
work immediately to repair the
break. A spokesman said that
they hoped to restore service by

with the Russians on terms for
a Big Four Foreign Ministers'
His words implied that the
whole project may fall through.

rier, collected $3,600 last Novem-
ber and December to give Shigeru
Ebihara of the District Court of
Nagano a legal education.-

off the Korean coast taking part
in the Marine withdrawal from
the Chosin Reservoir area.
A tuition scholarship has been
arranged by the University. The
young Japanese was admitted to
the Law School through the ef-

Philippine Sea, Captain W. K.
Goodney, a University alumnus;
Captain Robert F. Jones, whose
brother is a Law School gradu-
ate; and a former naval col-

E. Davis, of the University's ge-

The men became acquainted
with "Abe," as they nicknamed
him, when the ship docked near
his home at Sasebo Harbor. Ebi-

list who opposed the miltiary had
been killed for his beliefs during

Prof. Philip Duey, Prof. Harold

all of the music school, totaled
the points from their vantage-
point in the first balcony. In

the results were announced,
Jimmy Lobaugh, '51M, Union
Opera star, cavorted capricously
about the stage, to the delight
of the spectators.
The winners returned to the'
stage for an impromptu encore of
"Delta Shelter," while the Kappas
basked in reflected glory.
Although it was advertised by
the IFC as the 14th annual Sing,
a check of Daily files revealed
only 12 previous sings since the
tradition began in 1935.
Unsuccessful finalists, in order
of appearance, were Sigma Phi,
Phi Kappa Tau, Sigma Alpha Ep-
