PARIS-(P)-Gen. Dwight D
Eisenhower, taking off for th
United States last night, said h
will discuss "strictly military" af
fairs with President Truman an
other United States leaders.
Eisenhower was asked by re
porters if any political subjec
would be discussed with Mr. Tru
man and replied:
"Not from my pointit won't."
SINCE the White House an
nounced Thursday that Eisen
hower would visit Washington a
the President's direction, there ha
been speculation in both the Unit
ed States and Europe that th
trip might result in a statement o
whether the General will bea
candidate for president of the U.
In Washington yesterday some
persons suggested that Mr. Tru-
man might introduce the politi-
cal factor indirectly by asking
Eisenhower if he planned to give
up his post as Supreme Allied
Commander in Europe.
It was argued that if Eisenhowe:
wants to step down in order t
seek a presidential nomination i

would like to know so he could ad

Atlantic Treaty Organization tha

him were Mrs. Eisenhower and
a small personal staff.
Mr. Truman summoned the
General from Paris to Washington
with the announced plan of con-
ferring on matters affecting the
Supreme Allied Command and the
North Atlantic defense setup.
Officials in a position to give an
authoritative outline said yester-
day Eisenhower will ask for some
drastic steps to create a balanced
fighting force in the shortest pos-
sible time, say six months to a
year. This would be sooner than

THE PORTS OF New York and

A vital defense cargo of nickel was
turned away at New York during
the day. A Government plea to
unload it came too late.
A walkout of the 12,000 East

can-flag vessels in ports from
Maine to Texas. Thus far, the
ships are free to come and go
even in New York, although

thing but passengers.

Agreement on Cease-Fire Position
Buffer zone talks in the Korean armistice negotiations narrowed
down yesterday to one main issue-the status of Communist-held

Except for minor adjustments, the Allies and Reds appeared gen-
erally agreed on the remainder of a cease-fire line stretching in a
lazy s-shape northeastward across Korea.

IN WASHINGTON, Gen J. L
Ann Arbor got a good preview
of winter yesterday as the long-
promised snow finally made an
appearance a n d temperatures
dropped to well below freezing all
over the state.
The hardest hit area was the
copper country of the Upper Pe-
ninsula where 15 inches of snow
was recorded, leaving residents
wondering if they were in for an-
other hard winter. Last year a
snowfall of 254 inches was record-
ed in some parts of the area.
HERE IN Ann Arbor the weath-
er man predicted more of the sam-
ple of winter that arrived yester-
day. Snow flurries and a low of
20 degrees will make today a
good one to enjoy the football
game by a warm fireside.
However, students who trav-
eled to Illinois for the game will
be out of luck If they didn't pre-
pare for the cold wave. The low
there is expected to be 15 de-
grees with snow.

THE TENTH session of the buf-

scheduled early today.
The Communists have agreed
tentatively to accept an Allied
proposal for a two and one-half-
mile-wide buffer zone generally
following the present battlefront
in central and eastern Korea.
That plan provides for Allied
withdrawal from about 200 square
miles of territory -- to positions
south of Kumsong in Central Kor-
ea and south of Kosong on the east
coast.bThe allies would hold the
"heartbreak ridge" area, the hard-
won string of peaks in east-central

WASHINGTON-(P)- The De-

call yesterday for 59,650 men in
January, ticketing 48,000 for the
Army and 11,650 for the Marines.

THE DEFENSE Department's
call was the largest since March,
when 80,000 were inducted. It was
also the largest draft for the Mar-
ine Corps since it began to dip
into the Selective Service manpow-
er pool last August.
The big January goal, the De-
ifense Department explained,
"compensates for the low call
in December when inductions
were suspended for the holiday
period between Dec. 21, 1951, and
Jan. 2, 1952."
In December Selective Service
plans to call 16,900. The call for
last January was 80,000, the same
as February and March.

pleted a total of 794,330 men will

A fresh British infantry brigade
poured into the Suex Canal zone
from Libya by airlift yesterday in
the biggest RAF transport opera-
tion since the Berlin blockade.
Troops of the first division's
guards brigade, in desert battle
dress, landed at Fayid to reinforce
the estimated 40,000 British sol-
diers holding the Canal against
Egyptian threats and harassment.
THE OPERATION adds perhaps
4,000 or 5,000 men to the garrisons
and consolidates the first division
in the zone.
One of its three brigades was
stationed there when Egypt can-
celed her treaties with Britain
Oct. 8 in a move to oust the Bri-
tish; the second was moved in
recently from Cyprus.

backstage moves are under way to

cause of a provision he said would
require r a c i a l segregation in
schools located on federal prop-

CHAMPAIGN-Drawn by the

Rivalry between the two

Fighting Illini whipped UCLA,

Michigan fell prey to Michigan
State and Stanford.
Today's struggle brings togeth-
er two of the finest offenses of
their kind, Coach Ray Eliot's
precision Illinois T-formation
and Bennie Oosterbaan's time-
proven single wing.
Key to the Illinois attack is
sophomore quarterback Tommy
O'Connell who will pilot a speedy
backfield made up of the scintil-
lating Johnny Karras-Don Stevens
halfback tandem and driving full-
back Bill Tate.
KARRAS, the Argo Express, is
his team's leading scorer and
ground gainer with 412 yards in 79
cracks at the line., His ten touch-
downs to date are only three under
the Illinois season record held
jointly by Red Grange and Buddy

most as well and has a hightr
average gain per carry.
The Wolverines will rely on
their familiar backfield of Ted

on the wing, Don Peterson at
fullback and Captain Bill Putich
in the tailback assignment.
Peterson is the top Michigan
ball carrier with 277 yards, while
tiny Bradford has the best average,
6.3 yards per try.
Bradford, incidentally, will re-
main with the Wolverines for the
rest of the season. He had been
scheduled for induction into the
armed forces last month, but a
