At Six Points
(M'-Alied corps officers said
yesterday they believed the Chi-

"for at least three months."
TOKYO--015--More than 60,000
Chinese Reds were "running like
hell" into North Korea yesterday
under Allied artillery and air bom-
bardment but 2,000 were trapped
*south of the 38th parallel.
Flight of the Communists neared
a panic as Allied columns in hot
pursuit plunged across 38th at six
points in the east, central and
west-central areas.
"They don't like the enemy be-
hind them any more than we do.
~So they are running like hell," a
'frontline officer said.
Becker said the trapped 2,000
made a desperate, unsuccessful
{ three hour, pre-dawn fight to
break out of the trap near Chun-
chon, 45 miles northeast of Seoul.
Everywhere onrushing Allied
troops found evidence of panic.
Truckloads of rice and ammuni-
tion were left behind. Many of
the Reds discarded their uni-
*forms and apparently sought to
escape in civilian clothes.
At Eighth Army Headquarters a
briefing officer said at least 60,000
Chinese Reds were retreating on
the central and east central fronts

forward on a line stretching from

f Night and day pounding by Al-

field dispatches said.

making a daring bid for victory.

Hague Talk

THE HAGUE, *The Netherlands
-(IP')-Britain and the billion dol-

asked the International Court of
Justice yesterday to force Iran to
submit to arbitration in the peace-
threatening dispute over nationali-
zation of oil.
U.S. Ambassador Henry F. Grady
handed to the Iranian foreign min-
ister, in Tehran a note declaring
the dispute was of the utmost im-
portance to the "entire free world"
and strongly urging a settlement
by negotiation.
The United States plainly was
worried that the situation might
lead to the intervention of troop:
from both Britain and Russia.
DISPATCHES from Tehran told
of unconfirmed reports that some
of Premier Mohammed Mossa-
degh's National Bloc at last were
willing to sit down with the British
for talks.
It remained to be seen, however,
how Mossadegh and his fiery fol-
lowers would react to the latest

The usual examination-tension
appeared absent this morning as
applause and cheering echoed
through Waterman Gym, one of
the local testing centers, as the
initial "go" signal was given.
Three hours later the word "stop"
met with loud booing.
At another local center students
taking the test complained that
monitors refused to tell them the
amount of time remaining for
the exam. This, reportedly, caus-
ed many to misjudge the time al-
lotedl and thus fail to complete
the entire exam.
Made up of 150 multiple-choice
questions, the three hour test
dealt mainly with such funda- I
mentgl subjects as vocabulary,
reading skill and mathematics.
Dave Ramsey, '53, found the
exam "a miniature of the Coast
Guard test I took last February."

clared, "It was a good exam, the

Special to The Daily
LANSING-Weary Senate and
House legislators headed for their
homes yesterday having cleared
the slate of all bills waiting for
Chief among the measures re-
sulting from the flurry of final-
session debate was a hard-fought
bill resurrecting Michigan's pow-
erful one-man grand jury.
The bill, which now awaits Gov.
Williams' signature, is the result
of the efforte' of several Repub-
lican legislators, backed by many
leading lawyers, to restore a strong

passed laws requiring loyalty oaths
for aill public employees, permit-
ting life imprisonment of subver-
sives, and allowing a 20-year-to-
life sentence for those convicted
of selling dope to minors.
Senate again refused several of
Democratic Gov. Williams' pet
projects. The lawmakers rejected
his recommendations for such
measures as a corporation profits
tax, a sex deviate program, repeal
of the old-age assistance lien law,
and laws making the enrichment
of flour compulsory.
The governor was denied exten-
sive powers over transportation,
communications and industry in
times of state emergency. Also
refused were bills providing capi-
tal punishment, registration of
Communists, a cigarette stamp
tax, and four-year terms for state,.
legislative and county officers.
One bill met with very little
opposition. It provided for a pay
increase for the legislators.

Council Plans
Open Hearing
on City Rents
The City Council will hold aI
public hearing tomorrow -night to
decide whether rent controls
should be taken off in Ann Arbor.
Last March 26 the Washtenaw
County Rent Advisory Board vot-
ed 5 to 3 to recommend that rent
ceilings be removed. But the re-
quest was turned down by Federal
Housing Expediter Tighe E. Woods,
who said it was "not appropriate-
ly substantiated by facts."
If the council votes to removej
the ceilings their decision will
override Woods' ruling.

IN ADDITION to the 1951-52
University operating budget, the
State granted the University
$3,000,000 for construction, $1,500,-
000 for the Angell Hall addition,
and $1,500,000 for the out-patient
clinic, which is being established
under University auspices.
Also earmarked for the Uni-
versity will be a $290,000 appro-
priation for the campus Neuro-
psychiatric Institute. The appro-
priation stipulates that psychia-
trists shall be trained for State
mental institutions.
Earlier last Wednesday both the
House and Senate had rubber-
stamped a $1,583,377 deficiency bill
to make up the deficit in this year's
University budget.
. *.
THE NEW University budget re
presents an increase of $3,272,055
over last year's appropriatin of
$11,572,945, This, of course, has
been due to rising operating costs.
At any rate, University offi-
cials seem to be rather satisfied
with the 1951-52 budget. They
had presupposed neither an in-
crease nor a decrease in the
University budget once the Sen-
ate Finance Committee had re-
ported the bill out without
amending the House's recom-
Previously, University vice-
president Marvin L. Niehuss had
explained that the University's
ability to operate on the new bud-
get is largely dependent on the
size of next year's enrollment.

TEMPERS smoldered hot and
heavy yesterday morning and af-
ternoon as the State, budget bill
was riddled with 274 amendments
in the Senate and more than 50 in
a House-Senate conference com-
Frequently, Lieutenant Gover-
nor Vandenberg, the presiding
officeer, had to gavel senators In-
to silence.
A heated debate spun~ around an
amendment which would provide
appropriations for institutions car-
ing for the blind. One senator
erupted: "We're ready and willing
to give $1,000,000 to Michigan
State for cattle research but not
$10,000 to aid the blind."
THE SUNRISE serenade, how-
ever, faded away in the Capitol
Bldg. with the coming of the dawn
yesterday morning. And heated
tempers were replaced by rising
temperatures. Legislators sprawled
on sofas and napped.
Two senators trudged home
wearily but were dragged back by
State Police, Apparently, they
hadn't planned to come back.
Tired reporters, angered by they
long delay, muttered curses.
Other appropriations to State
colleges and universities included:
Western Michigan College,
$2,131,681; Ferris Institute,
$487,774; Blind School, $422,568;
Deaf School ,$792,135; Michigan
State College, $11,929,370.
In addition, Wayne University.
was granted $1,000,000 for con-
struction of a medical building.

ed $1,119,100 for a veterinary sci-

removal, Collins refused to budge
from his statement yesterday that
MacArthur "violated a policy" by
sending American troops close to
the Manchurian border last fall.
At the same time Collins reveal-
ed the Army has shipped $12,500,-
000 worth of supplies to the Chi-
riese Nationalists on Formosa
since last November.
Collins said $54,000,000 worth
have gone to Indo-China since
June, 1949, and an additional $2,-
000,000 worth is being prepared for
shipment there.
Also, Collins said, Army supplies
valued at $3,000,000 have gone to
the Philippines since June, 1949.

Blind Girl in Ann Arbor,
On Trip To Gain Sight

A small flaxen-haired child ar-
rived in Ann Arbor yesterday on
the last lap of her long journey to
regain the eyesight which she has
been lacking since birth.
Eight-year-old Flora Jean Pitt-
man has had a long struggle all
her life. Born blind, she was aban-
doned by her parents four years
ago and was taken under the
wing of a kindly foster-mother,
Mrs. Louis McCormick of Beld-
ing, Michigan. Since that time
Flora Jean has visited New York

with the help of the Lyra Male
Chorus, which is planning a t
benefit concert tomorrow night,
Flora Jean hopes to fly to New
York in June.
In the last few months Flora 1
Jean has received 23,000 letters,
and Mrs. McCormick does her
best to answer them all. Contri-
butions have ranged from three
cents to $500, and Flora Jean saysk
