David Royal
Takes Stanid
For Defense
Milan Teen-ager
Alters Confession
"I've had time to think it over
now and remember what happen-
ed and I'm here to tell the truth."
With these words, David Lee
Royal, on trial for the Sept. 16
mallet-slaying of Nurse Pauline
A. Campbell, told a Circuit Court
jury yesterday what he said he re-
called of the midnight murder.
UNLIKE CO-defendants William
L. Horey, III, and Jacob Max Pell,
who nervously gave spotty testi-
mony Wednesday, Royal turned in
a calm, matter-of-fact perform-
ance on the witness stand. _
The Milan youth told how
he, Morey and Pell drove to the
University Hospital area, scene
of Miss Campbell's death. "Bill
(Morey) said, 'Stop the car...
turn off the lights," Royal said.
He testified that Morey, who is
charged with crushing Miss Camp-
bell's skull with a hard-rubber
mallet, got out of the car and
walked in the same direction as a
girl who had walked up across a
curb. "Thenthey went out of
sight," he said.
* * *
UNDER INTENSE cross-exam-
ination by Prosecutor Douglas K.
Reading, Royal would not con-
cede that Pell was "following" the
woman. A mainstay in the state's
charge of first degree murder is
that the youths "did lie in wait and
did stalk" the 34-year-old victim.
Royal also stated he did not
know definitely that Morey club-
bed Miss Campbell. He said that
Morey called for help a short
while after he had left the car.
"I first said no, then Max (Pell)
ordered me to get out of the
ear," the blond youth continued.
Morey told him "to grab one of
her arms," Royal said. "I was
scared and didn't know what to
do. We got to the car and Bill
said to put her in. Max hollered
no. I dropped her and jumped into
the car."{

aging Behind Set Goal

Regulations Changed,
HigherCeiling Ahead
WASHINGTON-(RP)-Price con-
trol chiefs revamped regulations
affecting 100,000 manufacturers
yesterday and said that generally
higher price ceilings can be ex-
pected on many consumer goods
as a result.
They suggested that Congress
is responsible for what may hap-
DiSalle said the changes were ne-
cessitated by th e Capehart
Amendment to the Economic Con-
trols Law, by which Congress re-
quired that price ceilings reflect
most cost gains that occurred
from the outbreak of the Korean
war to last July 26.
This is the amendment which
President Truman denounced as
"an economic bobbytrap' and
which Senator Capehart (R-
Ind.) and other backers upbeld
as simple fairness.
T h e affected manufacturers
produce a wide variety of things,
such as processed foods, furniture,
household appliances, farm ma-
chinery, chemicals, hardware,
hand tools, machine tools and
rubber goods.
Also, the National Production
Authority virtually "froze" the in-
troduction of new auto models
after next Feb. 1. The same freeze
would apply to makers of wash-
ing machines, refrigerators and
similar appliances.

Dean of Women Deborah Ba-
con sent a notice to all women's
residences yesterday cautioning
students going to the game to be
careful. Her parting message to
the students was: "Discretion is
sometimes the better part of
staying alive."
For those planning to drive to
the game, the Union travel service
and the AAA offered a suggested
route to Cornell.
* * .*
THE SUGGESTED route begins
at Detroit, where drivers may cross
into Canada via either the Detroit-
Windsor tunnel or the Ambassador
The route then continues with
Ontario route No. 98 which
merges with Kings' Highway No.
3 and turns off with No. 3A to
Niagara Falls.
After crossing either of the
two toll bridges, the route picks
up on U.S. highway No. 62, turns
off on New York highway No. 324
and runs into New York highway
No. 5.
New York No. 5 runs all the
way to Seneca Falls, New York.
The road from Seneca Falls to
Ithaca is straight along New
York highway No. 89.
With the Cornell excursion as
their only chance for an out-of-
town performance, the Michigan
band has planned a show whbh

Policy Seen
For Britain
Britain will get a firmer,
sounder foreign policy but no dilu-
tion of the "Welfare State" prin-
ciple under the Churchill govern-
ment, Prof. James K. Pollock said
The chairman of the political
science department returned this
week from a month-long trip to
Germany, France and Britain.
PROF. POLLOCK, in Britain for
the Oct. 25 election and the for-
mation of the new cabinet which
followed, saw the Conservatives
program as consisting of three
major facets:
1) A firmer, sounder foreign
policy, especially in Egypt where
the political scientist envisioned
the type of non-inflammatory
stand the West made during
the Berlin blockade.
2) A retention of the funda-
mental "welfare state" principle
of the Labor government along
with all specific programs except
steel nationalization. Prof. Pol-
lock explained that denationaliza-
tion of the steel industry was still
possible and probably would be
carried out.
3) An attempt to follow
through on a campaign promise
of 300,000 housing units provid-
ing "initiative" and expediting
materials for a prodigious build-
ing program.
Though optimistic for the suc-
cess of Britain's policy in Egypt,
Prof. Pollock thought that most
Britishers had written off their
holdings in Iran.
"Now they realize that they
muffed the ball in there," the po-
litical scientist said, "and feel

Iran Oil Sale Offer
To West Reported
WASHINGTON-()-Iran was
reported yesterday to have offer-
ed to sell some 70 per cent of its
nationalized oil production at a
discount to the west, as part of a
settlement of its bitter oil dispute
with Britain.
Informed officials who gave out
this wcrd said the Iranians insist
on reserving the remaining 30 per
cent for sale to other buyers at a
greater profit.

ister Andrei Vishinsky clashed

Dean Acheson in a debate which
left few delegations hopeful of
Vishinsky dismissed as ludicrous,
trifling and spurious a joint Amer-
ican-British-French resolution em-
bodying the proposed fool-proof
regulation of armed forces and
arms, including atomic weapons.
HE PROPOSED instead a four-
point resolution which would pro-
vide for a world disarmament con-
ference by next June 1.
The U.S. Secrtary of State
had appealed for support of the
three-power plan, which Presi-
dent Truman commended to the
UN in a broadcast address from
Washington last night.
Acheson made it plain the Unit-
ed States will not begin on a pro-
gram of arm. limitation, which
would eventually include a count
of American and Russian atomic
bombs if good faith prevailed, un-
til the Korean War is stopped and
existing world problems settled.

VISHINSKY went to the rostrum
when the Assembly reconvened in
the afternoon and said the big
powers of the West had not only
given birth to a mouse, but to a
"dead mouse."
"I could hardly sleep all night
last night because I could not
keep from laughing," he said.
"Even from this rostrum I can't
hold back my laughter."
Vishinsky ranged up and down
every policy of the United States
and the west and found nothing
good about any of them, especial-
ly the.North Atlantic Treaty Or-
ganization. He then offered a re-
solution calling for:
1. A finding by the General
Assembly that participation in the
"aggressive Atlantic Bloc" and es-
tablishment of foreign naval, army
and, air bases in any part of the
world is incompatible with the
principles of the UN.
2. A cease-fire in Korea, with
troops to be withdrawn in 10 days
from the 38th Parallel and all for-
eign troops to be withdrawn com-
pletely from Korea in three
3. To ask all countries, in and
oit of the UN, to scrutinize at a
world conference the question of

None of the deans interviewed expressed opposition to the
