Deficiencies Told
New York Conf erence Brings Out
Need for Greater Edu cational Basis
Daily Managing Editor
NEW YORK-Special to The Daily: Military training must be
better integrated into the general education of American youth, in
order that the moral and intellectual energies of the country are not
dissipated, Harold Taylor, President of Sarah Lawrence College de-
clared yesterdlay.
Speaking before more than 2000 college and secondary school
students at the second session of the annual New York Herald Tri-
,bune Forum, Taylor keynoted a discussion dealing with topics rang-
ing from the draft to academic freedoms.
* * * *
CLAIMING THAT "ultimately, the strength of this country rests
with the moral values, intelligence, and strength of will of our young
men, and not merely with their technical equipment to fight a war,"
Taylor struck out at the present system which causes military train-
ing to be a distinct gap in a man's career.
"There is a difference between national defense and national
security, and if the universities are considered only as training'
grounds for military personnel--in science, engineering, technical
skills and research of all kinds-we have given up the only means
this country has of developjng a critical intelligence about politi-
cal and social policies."
Backing up Taylor's view, Kenneth Kurtz, a graduate student at
Columbia University offered a plan designed to make military service
fit into the educational process. After students graduate from high
school, Kurtz suggested, they could be required to enter service im-
mediately for 12 to 15 months. Out of this group would be selected
qualified men to 'go to college, under a system of national scholar-
hips. While in college, they would receive further ROTC-type train-

MAJ. GEN. Lewis B. Hershey, Selective Service director, outlined
the manpower needs of the armed forces. "For the predictable future"
,500,000 men will be required, possibly more, and of this number not
more than 2,000,000 may be expected to be secured through volunteer-
ing. Seven hundred fifty thousand men will have to be inducted each
year to serve for two year periols.
"Only those who by capacity and inclination are able to ae-
cept and pursue training that we need in the world" will have to
be deferred for educational reasons.
George Goodman, a student. at Harvard University who made his
way into the East Berlin Communist Peace Rally last summer under
the guise of a fellow-traveler told the forum of the heed to recognize
youth. The Communists have capitalized on the desire of youth to
feel wanted by forming and subsidizing the Free German Youth or-
ganization. This could be the core in ten or twenty years, Goodman
asserted, of a militant, integrated German state.

YESTERDAY MORNING, a discussion concerning academic free-
dom was conducted between college delegates to the forum. Starting
off with a general definition of academic freedom as a freedom to

Bloody Mess
What started out to be a
soothing shower, turned into
near bedlam for a near-sighted
Stockwell coed last night.
Jean Gunderson, 55, in her
pajamas, but minus her glasses,
brought the whole house scur-
rying with her screams when
she discovered a pair of nude
legs resting by a pool of blood
in the shower room.
A resident counselor charged
to the scene of the murder, sui-
cide or whatever it was. But by
then the women had investigat-
ed: the legs were those of a dis-
sectedrmannequin; the blood
was Prang Tempera 1351 -
While the tittering women
herded the dummy into a phone
booth, an upset Miss Gunderson

Moss adegth
Talks oil at
White House
Truman reportedly told Iran's
Premier Mohammed Mossadegh
yesterday that it is vitally neces-
sary to resume the flow of oil from
Iran to the western world.
Mr. Truman conferred with Mos-
sadegh for one hour and 45 min-
utes at a luncheon meeting at
Blair House in an effort to break
the long deadlock over the Anglo-
Iranian oil crisis.
SECRETARY of State Acheson
and Secretary of Defense Lovett
were among the top Am ican of-
ficials who joined in the luncheon
A State Department spokesman
told newsmen:
"We are trying to get nego-
tiations resumed. We are ex-
ploring every avenue and leaving
no stone unturned."
Acheson's aides were reported to
have had some suggestions ready
for the meeting, but the White
House and the State Department
both maintained tight secrecy on
details of the discussion.
* * *
INFORMED officials said that in
broad outline one suggestion called
1. Iran to sell her oil at a
"discount" and permit the Brit-
ish to market it to western con-
sumers at a profit.
2. Iran to own and operate
the oil facilities with the help of
western technicians. A respon-
sible manager, possibly of a third
nationality, would direct the op-
Officials said that this was not
a formal proposal but merely a
suggestion, to get negotiations roll-
ing again. The suggestions were
said to be based on a belief that
the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company is
dead--so far as British ownership
is concerned-and will never be
allowed to operate in Iran again.

President To
Shelve Clark
White House To Wait
Senate Confirmation
WASHINGTON - () - T h e
White House last night called off
all plans for diplomatic represen-
tation at the Vatican until the
Senate can pass on the nomina-
tion of Gen. Mark Clark to be the
first American ambassador to the
Catholic church state.
Press secretary Joseph Short
announced that President Truman
has decided against a recess ap-
pointment for Clark.
SHORTLY AFTER that, in an-
swer to questions, Short said there
are no plans to set up an interim
embassy to do business until a
regular ambassador is confirmed.
There was no White House
suggestion that the decision was
related in any way to the wave
of Protestant protest which
started rising within minutes
after the Clark nomination was
sent to the Senate last Satur-
Rather, Short said, the decision
was based on two considerations:
1. Legislation is necessary to
permit the Geeral to accept the
diplomatic assignment and still
keep his army status, which he
does not want to give up,
2. Clark himself has some work
he wants to complete as Chief of
Army Field Forces before under-
taking the ambassadorial assign-
* * *
THE SENATE adjourned Satur-
day night until Jan. 8, without
acting either on the nomination
itself or on an accompanying bill
to cover Clark's military status.
There had been some sug-
gestions that the President in-
tentionally put out the nomina-
tion at a time when he knew it
would be acted upon, in order
to get the public reaction into
the open before the Senate has
to act.
Protestant c l e r g y m e n and'
church organizations have raised
vehement protests over the ap-
pointment, arguing that: it vio-
lates the American tradition of
separation of church and state,
and it tends to create dissention
among Americans at a time when
unity is essential.
Churchill Sees
Tory Win asf
Aid to Peace
LONDON -(A)- Winston Chur-
chill asked the British people yes-
terday to give him a chance to
help prevent world war III.
He said: "it is the last prizeI
seek to win."
The 76-year-old Conservative
leader explained he kept himself
in the political arena because he
felt he had an important contribu-
tion to make for peace.
He said if he became prime
minister as a result of a Con-
servative yitory in tomorrow's
general election he would restore
American "confidence and good-
will" in the British government.
'We have to give our hand gen-
erously, wholeheartedly, to our al-
lies across the Atlantic upon whose

strength and wisdom the salvation
of the world at this moment may
well depend," Churchill declared
in a campaign speech at Plymouth.
A few hours later Prime Minis-
ter Attlee, leader of the Labor
Party, asked for support in his
own constituency, Walthamston, a
London suburb.

ANN ARBOR will also mark the
anniversary as the UN's blue and

However, in spite of Student
Legislature's efforts, no UN flag
will fly on campus.
Last year the SL succeeded in
obtaining a UN flag from the
United Nations headquarters. Then
an auto company, in answer to an
appeal from The Daily, gave SL
the needed flag pole.
BUT THE PROJECT was killed
when the Board of Regents turned
down University Vice-President
Marvin Niehuss's suggestion that
the flag be flown on top of the Ad-
ministration Building.

The Board based its decision
on the state legislature's resolu-
tion against flying the UN flag.
The outstanding achievement of
the United Nations, according to
most observers, has been the in-
tervention in Korea stemming
from the Security's Council's reso-
lution to "restore international
peace and security in the area."
