TOKYO--P)-Fresh Red forces streamed into buildup areas along
the western and central fronts today as resistance against aggressive

An Eighth Army spokesman reported "a considerable amount"

British End
Rubber Sale
To Red China
LONDON-(M)-Britain's Labor
government yesterday halted rub-
ber shipments to Communist China
for the rest of 1951.
Aroused American public opin-
ion and whip-sawing attacks by
Winston Churchill's Conservatives
provoked the decision.
The rubber ban was announced
in the House of Commons a few
moments after Churchill had
thundered a demand for the
change at once "on the grounds
of national safety and even sur-
CHURCHILL also attacked Brit-
ain's maintenance of diplomatic
relations with Red China, saying
these ties had brought no advant-
age to Britain or the United
Nations "and they have become
a reproach against us in wide
circles in America."
A revival of isolationist sen-
timent in the United States, he
warned, might lessen American
help for Europe, which could
lead to the ruin of "the whole
J free world."
Sir Hartley Shawcross, presi-
dent of the Board of Trade, said
the government's opinion is that
China already has imported
enough rubber this year to fill her
civilian needs for all of 1951.
THEREFORE, he said, Britain
is asking its colonial governments
"to ensure that there will be no
further exports of rubber to
China from Malaya or the other
British territories involved this
Shaweross referred to "abnor-
mally high" rubber imports by'
Communist China in the first
The government's own figures
showed British territories shipped
45,000 tons of rubber to. Red
China for the three-month period
ending in March-about twice the
total in all of 1949.
Dewey Asks
Embargo on
Red Chinese
NEW YORK-(P)-Gov. Thom-
as E. Dewey yesterday urged an
"absolute and total" embargo by
the free world against trade of
any kind with Communist China.
It was one of 11 planks in a
global policy which he said is
most urgently needed to stop Rus-
sia from 'taking the world "bit
by bit."
Among Dewey's 11 points co-
ering both Asia and Europe were:
No appeasement or retreat from
Communism anywhere in the
world; no recognition ever of Red
China and use of the veto if
needed to keep her out of the UN;
more aid for Chiang Kai-Shek's
Nationalists and releasing his
troops for any use he wants to
make of them against the 'Chi-
nese mainland; continued bi-par-
tisan support for a Japanese peace
treaty; a policy aimed at an
eventual United States of Europe.

Spain and Yugoslavia Into the

Dawson Tells
Of Free Stays
At Fla._Hotel
WASHINGTON - (R) - White
House Aide Donald Dawson ack-
nowledged yesterday that he and
two other members of President
Truman's staff took free vaca-
tions at a $30-a-day luxury hotel
in Miami Beach, Fla., after the
hotel borrowed $1,509,000 from
the government.
But Dawson told senators he
understood some lawmakers them-
selves have accepted similar on-
the-cuff courtesies from the same
hotel, the Saxony.
He named the other two presi-
dential staffers as David K. Niles
and Col. Charles Maylon.
Making his long-awaited ap-
pearance as a witness in the RFC
Inquiry, Dawson swore he never
abused his White House prestige
by attempting to sway multi-mil-
lion dollar federal loans.

his roommate Mark Kremer,

When Gibson found Cox in the
lavatory he was wiping his wounds

Radioactive Snow Could affect
AA Industry, Report Reveals
Enough split radioactive atoms from last winter's Nevada A-bomb
test explosions fell in Ann Arbor to be a hazard to industrial processes.
This disclosure came in an article written by Prof. W. Wayne
Meinke of the chemistry department, which appeared yesterday In,
a science journal.
THE A-BOMB dust detected here was 100 times greater than the
normal radio-activity of this section, the article said. This was suf-
ficient to cloud films being developed by a film-processing com-

night's SL meeting after he was
members of the new cabinet: Irv
corresponding secretary; Wilcox,
Bob Baker, treasurer.
The new treasurer is Bob
Baker, '52BAd. Alice Spero, '53
and Pat Doyle, '52, won the two
secretary positions and Phil
Berry, '52BAd, and Leah Marks,
'52, were chosen as cabinet
In response to the recent restric-
tions placed on Lane Hall speak-
ers, a motion was passed asking
the University for a clarification
and revision of all existing regu-
lations affecting the appearance
of speakers on campus in order to
assure the maximum degree of
freedom of expression.
* * *
THE MOTION also called for
student representation on the
University Lecture Committee and
authorized the Campus Action
Committee to undertake negotia-
tions toward these ends.
Also passed was a proposal
approving discussions by SL's
Human and International Rela-
tions Committee, the Associa-
tion of Independent Men, and
dormitory governments with the
Board of Governors of the Resi-
dence Halls for the removal of
possible discriminatory ques-
tions from dormitory application
There was little surprise at the
results of the cabinet elections.
Wilcox, a member of Phi Kappa
Tau, was the overwhelming fhvor-
ite for the presidency. He re-
ceived the second greatest number
of votes in last month's elections
for SL and has been serving as
SL vice-president since last fall.
Stenn won the vice-presidency
over Baker by a very small mar-
gin. Baker was then nominated
for treasurer and he won that
post without opposition.

Of General's
Asia Report
'Didn't See Plan,"
Says Marshall
WASHINGTON - () - Gen.
Douglas MacArthur was reported
yesterday to have been ready in
1945 to march Allied troops against
the Chinese Red army unless the
Communists laid down their arms
and agreed to a free election In
Senator Smith (R-N.J.) gave
this report to Senators as Secre,
tary of Defdnse Marshall-for the
fourth straight day-defended the
administration program in Asia
with arguments which President
Truman told reporters are the
exact truth, word for word. Mar-
shall will resume his testimony to-
morrow at 9 a.m.
SMITH SAID he was informed
by "a pretty good authority" that.
after V-J Day MacArthur told the
War Department the Chinese Red
force was composed of only 125,-
000 to 250,000 guerillas.
"He proposed," Smith said,
"that, with Chinese government
agreement, America guarantees
the personal safety of the Com-
munist leaders and their right
to participate as a legal politi-
cal party in free elections under
American supervision.
Smith said he was told "dozens
of officials" of the army, navy, air
force, marines and office of stra-
tegic services saw theMacArthur
report. But Marshall declared he-
had no recollection of ever having
seen it. At this time, Marshall
was Army Chief of Staff and Mac-
Arthur's military boss.
MARSHALL, in his testimony,
again rejected the present pro-
posals of Gen. MacArthur to bomb
China into surrender. Marshall
declared this would risk a world
the United States is not prepared.-
He said the United States should
"never yield" to any argument
for admission of- Red China into
the United Nations-and he re-
peated that the Truman Admin-
istration is against giving the
island of Formosa to the Reds.

Thespians Archer, Best Reveal Past

However, the non - existent
Ann Arbor Civil Defense agency
can relax - the concentration
was not nearly enough to be
dangerous to human beings, ac-
cording to Prof. Mienke.
The split atoms were found here
in snow that fell three or more
'tays after the two Nevada bombs
of Jan. 27 or 28.
* * *
further atomic dust was found in
later snows after the detonations
of Feb. 1, 2 and 6. This may have
been due to a rumored difference
in size of the exploded bombs.
A more likely explanation of-
fered was differences in the up-
per air currents that carried the
atomic dust eastward across the
United States.
The presence of radioactive'
atoms in the snow was established
by a process of chemical separa-
tion, Prof. Meinke reported last
night. An analysis of the snow
revealed that certain elements
which are waste materials result-
ing from an atomic explosion were
The radioactive snow was re-
ported in widely scattered places
all over the Eastern half of the

parently it was present wherever
people took the trouble to look
for it."
