Hungary and Romania charges
yesterday their frontiers were vi
r lated by a U.S. military plar
which vanished Monday after re.

The charges were the first ac"
knowledgment by the two goverr

about the incident.

tains and woods of the Yugoslav,
Italian border region yesterda
hampered the air search for th
plane, a C-47 transport carryin
diplomatic cargo to Belgrade
which is believed to have mad
a crash landing in the area.
The two officers and two en-
listed men of the crew set out
from Erding Air Base, near Mun-
ich, Germany, Monday morning
for the U.S. Embassy in the
Yugoslav capital with an eight-
hour fuel supply.
The Embassy said a Yugosla
government check of its borde
stations and other authorities in
dicated the plane got lost and mis
took the Drava River, which run
along the Hungarian frontier and
close to the Romanian, for th
Sava, which marks an air corri-
dor to Belgrade.
The Sava almost parallels th
Drava, but flows 40 miles or so to
the southwest of the Drava.
The last repoit from the pilo
was at dusk, the Embassy said
when he apparently was trying to
retrace his course all the way
across Yugoslavia, to Italy.

British Seek
Agreement
On A-.Bomb
LONDON---gP)-Prime Minister.
Winston Churchill is expected to
ask President Truman for assur-
ances that United States bombers
will launch no atomic attack from
their British bases without prior
consultation with Britain, infor-
mants said yesterday.
The Prime Minister Monday re-
fused to promise left-wing Labor-
ites that he would seek similar
assurance that no atomic attack
would be made in Korea without
consultation with the British.
He said it was not proper to dis-
cuss what he might talk about with
the President when he visits Wash-
ington in January.
s * *
THE INFORMANTS said Chur-
chill will link a demand for as-
surances concerning use of the
British bases with his wish for a
full exchange of atomic secrets
with the United States. The war-
time exchange of information
stopped in 1945.
Churchill rejected yesterday a
demand of Emrys Hughes, a left-
wing Laborite, that Britain turn
the United States out of its
atomic bomber bases in this
country.
U.e said arrangements forbthe
U.S. Air Force to use its bases
"will continue so long as required
in the general interests of world
peace and security."
Hughes asked Churchill in the
House of Commons if he would
not cancel the bases agreement be-
cause it exposed the British peo-
ple to the danger of retaliatory
bombing.

GEN. ALFRED M. Gruenther,
Chief of Staff to Gen. Eisenhower,
talked to the committee about the

room guarded by scores of Special
Italian Police, Gruenther set forth
Shape's recipe for West European
security in terms of men, guns,
planes, tanks and ship§.
Gruenther emphasized that the
long-range plans for a big North
Atlantic army have not been scaled
down. He said the fact Eisen-
hower wants to have a smaller
army completely ready for com-
bat by the end of 1952 does not
mean he has lowered his sights for

Turkey Dinners Lure Students Home

By MIKE SCHERER
The prospect of a delicious
Thanksgiving turkey dinner today
with parents and friends has lured
students by the thousands from
Ann Arbor.
Despite the fact that turkey
with all the trimmings is on the
menu, University residence halls
officials predict that only a little
more than one-third of their resi-
dents will pick up their steaming
trays.
** *
STUDENTS staged a mass exo-
dus from Ann Arbor yesterday
after and sometimes before their
last classes, leaving by bus, train,
automobile and thumb. Many are
going home to spend their
Thanksgiving holiday with par-
ents; others with roommates and
friends.
The Michigan Central Rail-
road reported more than 500
students departing on east and
westbound trains last night.
The University residence halls
all promised a tempting bill-of-
fare for the minority of students
who will remain in town. The
menus include roast Tom turkey
with dressing and gravy, mashed
potatoes, cranberry sauce, and a
choice of mince or pumpkin pie.
FACED WITH the prospect of
nearly empty board tables, most
campus fraternity and sorority
houses decided not to serve meals
today. Local restaurants were
busy this morning preparing for
the anticipated rush of students

who were left without a place to
eat their Thanksgiving dinners.
Union Chef Narcisco Apriz
promised that the main dining
room would be ready. He pre-
dicted about 500 turkey dinner
orders, and has at least 50 tur-
keys ready to meet the demand.
"Last year," he chuckled, "the
League ran out of turkey early
and had to turn customers away.
But at the Union we always have
plenty to go around." The Union
cafeteria will also offer a special
Thanksgiving turkey dinner, with
appropriate trimmings.
PRESIDENT AND Mrs. Hatcher
will enjoy a quiet Thanksgiving
dinner, their first in Ann Arbor,
in the President's home with their
two children.
At Key West, Florida, President
and Mrs. Truman also planned to
observe the day with a small fam-
ily dinner. In formally proclaim-
ing the Day of Thanksgiving, Mr.
* * *
Community

Truman called upon his fellow
Americans to "pause in their au-
tumn labors and give thanks to
Almighty God."
Even on the far-off Korean
battlefront, m a n y American
combat troops were able to heap
their mess kits with turkey-day
fare.
The frontline menu, wherever
possible, will include stuffed cel-
ery, olives and pickles, young Tom
turkey, dressing, giblet gravy,
cranberry sauce, buttered peas and
whole grain corn, fresh snowflake
potatoes, candied yams, coleslaw,
hot rolls, mince pie, fruit cake,
pumpkin pie, fresh apples, fruit
punch and assorted nuts.
Some men will have to eat
their turkey and pumpkin in
foxholes from vacuum cans.
Since neither the Communist
army nor death are taking a holi-
day today, mess sergeants or Kor-
ean bearers will have to brave
Communist fire to get the turkey
and trimmings up to front line
fighters.
HERE IN the United States,

EST).
There appeared to be two
principal differences in the
Communist and UN command
proposals~
One was the specified time for
tha shooting to end. The other
was a formula for evolving a new
provisional cease-fire line if agree-
ment is not reached on other agen-
da items within 30 days.
An Allied spokesman said the
UN command version was based
on the proposition the Reds made
He added: "Where the meaning
clauses."
He added: "where the meaning
was clearer in the Communist
draft, no change was made, even
though the language was not com-
pletely idiomatic English."
THE RED proposal, submitted
during a two-hour subcommittee
session Wednesday, resembled in
most respects an Allied formula
for truce by Christmas proposed
last Saturday.
While the Reds agreed verb-
ally not to demand a pullback
of troops until the final truce
was signed, sealed and delivered,
the UN command wanted that
assurance down in black and
white.
The official United Nations
spokesman, Brig. Gen. William P.
Nuckols told correspondents Wed-
nesday night he was "more opti-
mistic" than he had been for some
time. The long debate on the
cease-fire line began July 27.
THE ALLIED command long
has argued that ground, sea and
air fighting must continue until
full agreement is reached on an
armistice.
Both the Allied and the Red
cease-fire formula provide adjust-
ments in the buffer line if agree-
ments are not reached on these
remaining agenda items within 30
days after the cease-fire proposal
is adopted by the full delegations
of both sides.

MEANWILE relative quiet set-
tIed across the Korean battlefront
as t h e Thanksgiving holiday
brought Allied forces a bite of tur-
key and thoughts of home.
The U.S. Eighth Army communi-
que Wednesday night noted a
slowdown in fighting. It reported
largely patrol actions on the west-
ern, central and eastern fronts.

1Vandenberg
Tells of Red
Air Growth
WASHINGTON--P)-The chief
of the United States Air Force
yesterday spelled out the "sobering
lesson" of swiftly expanding Soviet
air power as revealed in Korea,
where American control of the air
is being "seriously challenged" by
Russian-made planes flown by
Russian-speaking pilots.
In a remarkably detailed and
frank news conference based on
his recent visit to Korea, Gen.
Hoyt Vandenberg read a 4,000-
word formal statement and a-
swered a barrage of questions. Of
the air situation there, he said
there had been a significant and.
"even sinister change."
HE SAID THE Chinese Com-
munist air force has deployed in
North China and Manchuria about
1,500 planes, approximately one-
half of which are MIG-15 jet
fighters.
"The MIG in many respects
can outperform our own F-86;
it has out-climbed the best air-
planes that have been tested
against it and performed in com-
bat at altitudes approaching
50,000 feet," Vandenberg stated.
"Overnight, China bis become
one of the major air powers of the
world."
Vandenberg explained that while
Red China lacks indiri n
technical resources she is the "di-
rect beneficiary of another power"
which possesses those resource.
The Communists are trying to
push their airfield building pro-
gram southward toward the place
where the ground armies are lock-
e in battle, he said. By continuous
bombing effort, the United States
Air Force has managed to keep
three new enemy fields of this
type inoperational.

Gov. Williams
To Lead Rally
University alumnus G. Mennen
Williams, of Lansing, will be the
target of "roll 'em up" chants to-
morrow night at the pre-Ohio
State game pep rally.
Sharing the spotlight with pres-
ident of the Union, John Kathe,
'53 and J. Fred Lawton, co-com-
poser of "Varsity," the governor
will attempt to radiate some good
old "never-say-die-Michigan" spir-
it.
Corky Gibbon, '52, president of
the Wolverine Club will emcee the
rally at which students will be
cheering for a fourth conference
win.
Although the torchlight proces-
sion to Ferry Field will meet in
front of the Union as it has in past
weeks, meeting time has been
changed to 7:30 p.m.
And for the first time the en-
tire Michigan Marching Band will
be on hand to lead the parade
to Ferry Field and the waiting
bonfire.
