SL Makes
New Forei gn
A new program of orientation for
foreign students designed to soften
the impact of the different Ann
Arbor environment on the foreign-
ers has been announced by the
Student Legislature.
Any University student who
wishes to volunteer will be assign-
ed toan incoming student from
another country. Over the sum-
mer contact may be established
through the mails.
When the new addition to the
International Center arrives on
campus, he would be met by his
special orientation advisor, who
would show him local points of
interest, or help him with the
myriad registration and housing
problems a newcomer faces.
The new set-up is designed to
prevent foreign students from
withdrawing into small interna-
tional cliques, to bring them more
into campus life, according to Wal-
ly Pearson, '53, head of the SL Hu-
man and International Relations

Top officials dodged questions
about how the government would
take over the company's holdings
=if its representatives did not
show up.
Iran has rejected company pro-
posals that the dispute be settled
by arbitration. An informed source
said 'the government has decided
also to reject the latest proposal by
the British government, which
owns 53 per cent of the company
stock, to send a top-fevel diplomat-
ic mission to negotiate the dispute.
British Ambassador Sir Francis
M. Shepherd last Saturday deliver-
ed a strong protest and warned of
"serious consequences" if Iran car-
ried out its nationalization law
without first negotiating.

Iran the Russians and Americans
found themselves fighting a com-

Nine Soviet planes have arrived

Hershey Sees
Rush To Take

may be a last-minute rush at draft
boards today for applications to
take the forthcominr college apti-
tude tests.
There is no indication, however,
that local boards plan to extend
their usual closing hours for the
Selective Service Headquarters
said it is up to state directors
whether any special arrange-
ments are made for late comers.
None of the directors, at a
meeting which ended here yes-
terday, reported plans to stay
open late. ,
Selective Service Director Louis
B. Hershey predicted, however,
that there would be a last-minute
rush because of the popular ten-
dency to delay applications as long
as possible.
College men must mail their ap-
plication cards, obtainable only
from draft boards, so that they
will be postmarked not later than
midnight today.
The cards are addressed to
the Educational Testing Service,
Princeton, New Jersey. The tests
will be given at hundreds of cen-
ters across the country.

derclassmen or 75 or better for

A sksN
Foreign A id
Truman asked for $8,500,000,000
yesterday to help friendly nations
throw up a "defensive shield"
against Communist Russia.
"The Soviet threat is world
wide," he said in a message to
Congress outlining a broad new
foreign aid program. He said the
Communist attack may come
through "armies marching across
frontiers," or by slyer means such
as internal subversion, political
infiltration or sabotage.
In asking new billions to help
puncture Soviet Russia's "dreams
of world conquest," Truman said
the money will go to speed ship-
ments of American arms and eco-
nomic aid to nearly 50 friendly
countries around the world. These
include Formosa, Iran and other
powder keg centers in the global
picture, but the heavy accent was
on Europe. Nearly two-thirds of
the total was sought for arming
Atlantic Pact nations.
Slightly over' two-thirds of the
total, $6,250,000,000 would be ear-
marked for military aid. The bal-
ance of $2,250,000,000 would go
for economic help.
Earlier the President warned in
a news conference a third world
war might bring a return to the
"Dark Ages" and turn American
soil ito a battlefront.
But he expressed the hope that
his program and policies will avert
such a catastrophe.
He told a news conference that
he is "confident"-not "cocky" as
sme writers have reported - that
his policies are right and have the
support of the people of the Uni-
ted States and of the world.
He says he believes the Ameri-
can people have enough intelli-
gence and energy to meet any sit-
uation, but he is not willing to
take a chance on seeing how they
would react under the destruction
which another world struggle
would bring.
"Thatris the reason I don't want
a third world war," he said. He
granted a request that a sizable
portion of his remarks be quoted
The President volunteered his
statement about politics near the
end of a lengthy news conference
in which he again declined to state
whether he will be a candidate in
1952, but said the season is still
open for all who want to run.
He said if and when he decides
to make a cross-country speaking
trip, as he said he might in a mes-
sage to a meeting of Democrats
in Denver yesterday-the purpose
would be to tell the people the
truth and the facts just as he said
he did in the 1948 campaign.

Warn-ings To

By Bradley
N. Bradley said yesterday that the
Pentagon twice warned Gen. Doug-
las MacArthur last fall to close
the wide gap separating his forces
in North Korea.
It was through this gap-stret-
ching between the Eighth Army on
the West and the 10th Corps in
the northeast corner - that many
of the Chinese Communists surged
in their great winter offensive, in-
flicting the heaviest American cas-
ualties of the war.

and last day of testimony in the

thur's dismissal, declined to esti-

That forced the Reds to resort to

The House, in preliminary de-
bate, voted to retain the present

the present $50,000 ceiling on the

The Senate had approved a 4/2 -

exempting six of the state's largest

yesterday the free world's growing

integration" within the Kremlin.
Harriman said in an address at
the 26-state Western Democratic

ill-conceived action might be a
provocation to general war."

President Ruthven said that
she originated the policy that
he would, always see the stu-

Miss Rouse was "ordered" into
the office by President Ruthven

without arguing."
Miss Rouse will begin her retire-

She has served alongside Presi-

'Birth Of A Nation' Shown to
New Film Society Guests

In a small basement /room of a
private home in Ann Arbor, the
highly controversial film, "Birth
of a Nation" was shown last night
to a select group of guests of the
Neptune Film Society.
Approximately twenty-five peo-
ple saw the film as it unfolded
Director D. W. Griffith's interpre-
tation of the Civil War, the re-
construction era, and a rather in-
volved love story.
Although all the doors of the
house had been locked and a
police car cruised around the
house, the expected picketing did
not occur.
During the scenes of several
Civil War battles and Lincoln's
assassination, Mrs. Preston W.
Slosson explained that Griffiths
had used eye witnesses to recon-
struct the scenes.

The reaction of the small group
was not too varied. "It is a
vicious film, it completely distorts
history," B o b Marshall, Grad.
commented, "I do not think it ad-
visable to have it for public cir-
culation-study groups and dis-
cussion groups are another thing."
In regard to a public showing,
the Neptune Film Society has def-
initely cancelled tonight's showing
because they do not have a hall.
The group is still looking for a
hall and willannounce its plans
as soon as possible.
Also last night, the local chap-
ter of the National Association for
the Advancement of Colored Peo-
ple stated that they will strongly
oppose every effort to show the
film but will not picket the show-

THE REDS were still retreating
all across the 125-mile war front.
But they sowed heavy mine fields
and pounded back at the pursuing
Allies with artillery.
A U. S. Eighth Army spokesman
said other crossings of the 38th
parallel seemed imminent but so
far the'~only one was near Inje.
The daring 13-mile thrust
smashed to the banks of the
Choyang River through streams
of Reds. F i e l d dispatches

boldest strokes of the Korean

effort," messaged Lt. Gen. Edward

This was the only confirme0j
crossing of the 38th parallel along
the entire 125-mile front. But the
resurgent U.S. Eighth Army closed'
to witpin one to four miles of the
old political boundary elsewhere
along the front as the Chinese and.,
North Koreans fell back at a dog
trot pace.
Lt. Gen. James A. Van Fleet,
commander of the Eighth Army,
served notice that the controver-
sial boundary would not prevent
his victorious troops from main-
taining the initiative and inflict-
ing the maximum number of cas-
ualties on the Communists.
