Bradley Hits
War Policy
Threat of Global
Strife Too Great
WASHINGTON - (A') - Gen.
Omar N. Bradley opened fire on
Gen. Douglas MacArthur's Korean
War plans yesterday but he re-
fused to tell Senators anything
that was said at the first White
House meeting on the MacArthur
The chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff declared MacAr-
thur's war proposals "would in-
volve us in the wrong war, at the
wrong place, at the wrong time
and with the wrong enemy."
WITH THIS sweeping declara-
tion, Bradley rejected the MacAr-
thur program for stronger mea-
sures against Red China. He also
said such a move would "increase
the risk of global war" at a time
when the United States is not
ready for a showdown with Rus-
Then Bradley lined up with
Secretary of Defense Marshall
in holding out hope the Chinese
Reds can be forced into peace
terms in Korea without spread-
ing operations beyond t h a t
"We think," he said, "that if we
can punish the Chinese severely
enough in Korea then we will be
in a position, and they will be
in an attitude, where some kind
of an arrangement may be reached
and a settlement made."

IN THE MIDST of this terri-
tory, the Senate Armed Services
and Foreign Relations Commit-
tees' hearing into Asia policy and
the MacArthur firing was thrown
into sharp dispute when Bradley
refused to tell what was said at
the meeting on April 6-five days
before the general officially was
The r e f u s a 1 immediately
brought talk of possible con-
tempt action to test Bradley's
right to refuse but there was
no real indication such action
would be taken.
"If I have to publicize my rec.

sions," Bradley said, "my value as

Reaction to
Wheat Petition
The turnout for the Wheat-for-
India petitions which were circu-
lated on the campus yesterday for
the first time, was termed "very
encouraging" by Julie Crossman,
'52, local UNESCO president.
"Considering it was the first day,
the interest shown by students who
came into the Lane Hall Wheat-
for-India office was wonderful.
We're circulating 40 to Pan Hel,
110 to SL and 60 to IFC in hopes
that our good luck will continue."

tion was drawn up by SL, SRA and
the local UNESCO chapter as a re-
sult of a recent trek to Washington
made by SRA members. After pre-
senting their token gift of wheat
and money to Mme. Pandit, India's
ambassador, they decided to ini-
tiate a petition urging Congress to
pass the currently pending Wheat-

for-India bill.
"And if this enthusiastic re-
sponse continues, it won't take
long for us to reach our 5000-
name goal. We've also sent this
l., petition and the local UNESCO
chapter's bulletin concerning In-
dia to about 40 colleges in hopes
they'll join us."
The Wheat-for-India petition
and the local UNESCO chapter's
bulletin can be picked up from 9
a.m. to 10 p.m. today through Fri-
day in the Lane Hall Wheat-for-
India office.
"They should be turned in not
later than 9 a.m. Monday. We feel
the sooner they reach Washington,
the better,"' Miss Crossman said.

Niehuss Hopeful,
'Not Too Satisfied' with House Bill
But Believes Senate Won't Slash It
LANSING-University vice-president Marvin L. Niehuss admitted
yesterday that he was "not too satisfied" with the $14,845,000 Univer-
sity budget voted by the House last Friday, but expressed optimism
that the bill would not be slashed by the Senate.
Niehuss, who has been traveling back and forth between Ann
Arbor and Lansing to consult with State legislators, indicated that
the proposed budget, now before the Senate, would require the Uni-
Oversity to operate by $600,000 to

that other University offiicals
have agreed to accept the figure.
"They have acquiesced," he said,
but certainly aren't too content."
Niehuss returned to Ann Ar-
bor last night after what he
described as a "relatively quiet"
meeting of the Legislature. He
estimated that the appropria-
tions bill would probably come
before the bill-flooded Senate
for final passage either the lat-
ter part of this week or early
next week.
The busy upper house, which
adjourns May 25, must, under the
rules, deal with all bills other than
appropriations before the end of
this week. A conference commit-
tee session will probably be set for
next Wednesday to iron out any
differences between t h e t w o
HERETOFORE, the wrangling
over University appropriations
had followed the usual course,
shuttling back and forth between
University officials, the State's
Budget Bureau, Gov. Williams and
the House.
Earlier, the Board of Regents
proposed a $16,200,000 State
grant. After careful delibera-
tion and on their own accord,
the Regents then slashed their
request down to $15,200,000 as
the absolute minimum under
which the University could op-
erate next year.
Simultaneously, t h e State's
Bureau recommended $13,700,000
for the University, a figure which
was far below the Regents' re-
immediately warned that the Bu-
reau's figure would force a cut-
back of nearly 300 members off
the University's faculty.
Subsequently, Gov. Williams
reversed his stand and recom-
mended a $1,000,000 increase ini
U n i v e r s i t y appropriations,
bringing the proposed Univer-
sity budget to $14,700,000.
The bill then went to the House,
and last Friday that body included
an appropriation of $14,845,000,
a figure which topped Williams'
proposal by $145,000 but fell short
of the Regents' final request by

tion's mobilization chiefs all called
with one voice yesterday for team-
work under tighter rules of law
to do a defense job that will get
tougher before it gets easier.
Economic Stabilizer Eric John-
ston, testifying before the Senate
Banking Committee, said, "We
simply cannot mount the defense
effort we need" without a sta-
bilized economy and tight curbs
on inflation. He said extension
and broadening of the Defense
Production Act is essential.

AFTER A DAY of hearings on
the proposal to extend and broad-

Chairman Maybank (D-S.C.) of
the Senate Banking Committee
told Price Stabilizer Michael V.
Di Salle: N
"I want to warn the Adminis-
tration it is going to be very,
very hard to get any bill passed
at all. I don't know if there is
going to be any extension."
Di Salle came back with the
statement that he has "more con-
fidence in the sense of responsi-
bility of Congress than. to think
they would not pass" the exten-
sion for the emergency law, now
due to expire June 30.
E. Wilson said that his job is pro-
ceeding faster than he expected
and the need for curbs may taper
off a year from now "if we have
some unity."
According to Secretary of Com-
merce Charles Sawyer, it will be
"disastrous" if the Production Act,

Allies Withdraw
East of Chunchon
TOKYO - () - Chinese and
North Korean Communist troops
hurdled two river defense barriers
in Central Korea yesterday, indi-
cating that the long-awaited Com
munist push might be imminent.,
The Reds crossed the Pukha
River southwest of Chunchon dur-
ing the night in undisclosed num-
bers. They moved under cover of
rain showers and low-hanging
clouds that shielded them from
Allied night fighters and bomb-
ers. They occupied high ground
just south of the river
The second Red movement was
across the Choyang River where
the Communists planted a bridge-
head several days ago in spite of
heavy Allied artillery fire. 4TIhis
column moved to a point 15 miles
due east of Chunchon and con-
tinued southward.
South Korean troops withdrew
from Inje, strategic road center
four miles north of the- 38th Par-
allel, under Communist pressure
Soon afterwards the Reds moved
into the town.
Field dispatches described the
new Red thrusts, as "heavy prob-
ing attacks." They were accom-
panied by the usual whistle and
bugle-blowing that mark the cus-
tomary Chinese attack.
AP correspondent Nate Polow-
etzky at U.S. Eighth Army Head-
quarters said the Chinese struck
at Allied positions east of Chun-
chon at 1:30 a.m. They laid down
raking rifle and automatic weap-
ons fire until United Nations forces
Then Allied big guns roared and
dispersed the Red attackers with
heavy losses forty minutes after
the fight began.
South Korean patrols operating
about 15 miles northwest of Seoul
drew fire from Chinese forces con-
centrated near Munsan.
In the Uijongbu sector, 11 miles
north of the old Korean capital,
