U.S. To Ease
Italian Pact
Despite Reds-
Soviets Charge
Aggressive Ideas
-= Department, brushing aside Soviet"
objections as propaganda, gave
notice yesterday that the West is
going ahead with plans to ease
the peace treaty with Italy.
Moscow charged Thursday that
in proposing to revise the terms
of the 1947 settlement the Wet
wants to make use of Italy for
purposes of the "aggressive At-
lantic bloc.
A SOVIET note said Russia
would go along.only if the treaties
with her eastern European allies;
also are revised and Italy pulls
out of the 12-nation North Atlan-
tic Alliance
In advance of a formal reply
the State Department published
a translation of the Soviet note
and declared "the U.S. Govern-
ment does not propose to be
deterred by such propaganda
from its effort to find the way
to recognize Italy's new stature
and its right to participate with
the other free nations in work-
ing for international peace ahd
The department at the same
time rapped Russia for vetoing re-
peatedly Italy's membership in
the United Nations and charged
Moscow wanted to put Italy in
"a staus o subjugation compar-
able to that of its satellites in
Eastern Europe."

Cuts Civilian
ernment is going to cut down on
the manufacture of many civilian
items, but believes there will still
be enough for normal needs.
This report came yesterday from
Manly Fleischmann, head of the
Defense Production Administra-
tion (DPA), who announced that
the use of metal in making house-
hold appliances and other con-
sumer goods will be reduced by
about 11/ per cent beginning
January 1.
"The outlook is that produc-
tion of such civilian items as re-
frigerators,hstoves, radios, televi-
sion sets and home appliances of
all kinds will be reduced," Fleisch-
mann told a joint meeting of four
Congressional committees.
"But because generally ample
supplies of these products are
now on dealers' shelves the sup-
ply should be sufficient to meet

normal consumer needs."
Because of the increasing need
for metal in the defense produc-
tion effort, manufacturers of
washing machines, refrigerators,
etc., already have been limited to
58 per cent of their pre-Korea use
of steel, 54 per cent of copper and
46 per cent of aluminum.

THE CULPRIT-The aluminum sash, framing several idle wheelbarrows, was the cause of a juris-
dictional dispute which halted work on three University construction projects yesterday. Carpenters,

Further construction work on
three University projects halted
yesterday when carpenters of AFL
local 512 walked off their jobs and
began picketing after a jurisdic-
tional dispute.
The walkout forced the lay-off
of around 350 buildings trades
workers and stopped the construc-
tion of the Angell Hall addition,
the University Hospital's Out-Pa-
tient Clinic and the Kresge Medi-
cal Research Center.

No solution is in sight, as both
labor and management have de-

A disagreement between car-
penters and iron workers, stem-
ming from the question of which
union should install aluminum
window sashes, was the cause of
the strike. The construction com-
panies gave the job to the iron
workers and, when the carpenters
union objected, the projects were
closed, pending a settlement.

cal 512 claimed that the contrac-
tors had no right to award the
sash installation job arbitrarily,
and that their action was contrary
to provisions in the Taft-Hartley
Act governing such jurisdictional
They further maintained that,
since the dispute has been one
of 'long standing in the build-
ings and construction industry,

the contractors should have
waited for a decision on it from
the Joint Board for Jurisdiction-
al Disputes, an AFL organization
in Washington, D.C.
A trade law which states that
any work involving a plumb and a
level is to be done by carpenters is
the basis for Local 512's appeal.

CHARLES SEGAR, superinten-
dent of the Angell Hall addition
project, pointed out that jobs were
usually assigned to particular
trade groups according to past
practices in the particular area. In
the South Quad, the sashes were
installed by the iron workers, so
the job was given to them again.
Company officials also claimed
that they had asked the National
Labor Relations Board for a rul-
ing on the issue several months
ago, but no decision was handed
down. The contractors, however,
again certified the dispute to the
NLRB yesterday andThursday.
There were also several reports
circulating yesterday as to other
factors pertaining to the dispute.
One was that the contractors hired
the iron workers because their
scale wage was lower. Another in-

As Reds Balk

E By 7The Associated Pres
Three Allied divisions opened an
attack today along a 22-mile front
in Central Korea and gained up
to a mile against feeble Chine
Red resistance.
The whole Korean front ex-
ploded in the heaviest fighting
since last May, with Allied units
suffering reverses at points in the >
East and West Friday.
MEANWHILE as the fighjing
raged an Allied team today inves-
tigated a Comimunist charge that
U.S. planes strafed the Panmun-.
jom-Kaesong neutral zone, a
charge that has jolted hopes fo
resumption of the suspended Kor-
ean truce talks.
A radio message received here
at noon (10 P.M. yesterday,
EST) said only that the inves-
tigating party for the United{
Nations Command was return-
ing from Kaesong to Panmun-
jom, six miles to the east. It
gave no other details.
Allied liaison officers made a
preliminary investigation of the
charge as soon as it was reported
last night. The Reds asserted that
U.S. planes in' a strafing attack
killed a Korean boy.

the center was south of Kum-,

north of Parallel 38. The U.S. 24th
division scored the mile advance.;
-The other two divisions in the
attack were the South Korean

The heavy stab was made in the
direction of Kumsong, which has

since last August.

Michigan will get anoth'er
chance to break into the evasive
win column when the Wolverines
open the defense of their Big Ten
title against Indiana at two o'-
clock today in the Stadium.
The Western Conference crown
is an interesting topic of nonver-
sation, but-the big thing on Coach
Behnie Oosterbaan's mind will be
whether his twice-beaten Wolver-
ines can keep a five game victory
streak over the Hoosiers intact.

But Indiana's Clyde Smith is
in somewhat the same boat as

rated as the best Indiana has had
since the Hoosiers won the Big
Ten title back in 1945, has bee
anything but impressive in tO
outings this year.
The Hoosiers were squashed by

Beer Bottle
Theft Takes
Plce in .rb
Approximately four cases of
empty beer bottles were reported
stolen from a University green-
house Thursday night in the Nich-
ols Arboretum.
Four cases is only a drop in thes
bucket to the "two or three" truck-
loads taken out almost every Mon-
day by University employees, de-
clared Superintendent of the Ar-
boretum C. L. Moody yesterday.
"After a week end of good wea-
ther it takes two men, a tractor
and a good size wagon an entire
day to clear away all the empty
bottles and cans," Moody said.
The robbery was apparently
committed in order to enable the
thief to claim the deposit on the
bottles. Possibly the robber him-
self had left them in the vicinity
sometime previously.

LAST NIGHT pep rally atten-
dance took a turn f'r the better.
as almost 1,000 students turned utj
for the "Beat Indiana" gathering'
The Marching Band, playing at
half strength, even with Band Di-
rector Jack Lee playing a trumipet
in the last row, led the students
down to a roaring bonfire on S.
Ferry Field.
Feature of the evening was
the first address by President
Harlan H. Hatcher to the stu-
dent body. Sporting a blue gab-
ardine jacket with, maize trim,
which he claimed to have owned
for nine years, President Hatch-
er dismissed Michigan's first
two defeats as "warm-up
games," pointing out that the
Big Ten campaign opened today.
The crowd rose to their feet to
applaud President Hatcher as he
smounted the wooden speaker's
platform. He appeared bewildered
by the crescendo" of "Roll 'em utp"
from the crowd, and first fumbled
with his jacket. After a knowing
whisper from master of ceremonies
Corky Gibbon, Wolverine Club
president, he finally rolled his
pants cuffs up, revealing a snappy
pair of garters.

mortal march, "The Stars and
