Blast at '50
WASHINGTON' () - Repub-
lican Senator Robert A. Taft, in
a day-long denunciation of tactics
K employed in the 1950 Ohio sena-
torial campaign, said yesterday
labor unions fought him with a
"tissue of lies" and that the
White House helped direct the
battle against him.
Big unions, Communists and the
White House campaigned against
him in "the most vitriolic attack
probably ever conducted against
any candidate," he said.
TAFT, NOW running for the
1952 Republican presidential nom-
ination, estimated that $2,000,000
was spent on behalf of his Demo-
cratic opponent for the Senate in
r 1950, Joseph T. Ferguson.
The Senator gave his 22,000-
word story to a Senate Elections.
Subcommittee which is looking
into the Ohio campaign, with
emphasis on its cost. Ferguson,
who has estimated that Taft's
campaign was helped out to the
extent of $5,000,000 in contribu-
tions, will testify today.
The subcommittee investigators
' have estimated on the basis of
their findings to date, that about
$1,800,000 was spent on behalf of
the Republicans in Ohio--all can-
didates-and around $300,000 for
The sub-committee's members
are Sen. Mike Monroney (D.-
Okla.), Sen. Thomas Hennings
(D.Mo.), Sen. Arthur Hendrick-
sen (R.-N.J.) and Sen. Margaret
Chase Smith (R.-Me.), in addi-
tion to the chairman, Sen. Guy
Taft estimated about $612,000
of the total of $1,800,000 was
r spent on his behalf. Then he said
that for every $1 spent for him $3
was spent for Ferguson.
r HE SAID he thought it was a
fair estimate" that around $2,-
000,000 went into Ferguson's cam-
paign from all sources.
John Moore, committee counsel,
} said his staff had estimated that
* See COMMENT STORY, Page 6
about $98,000 of Democratic funds
were "earmarked" for Ferguson.
Taft testified the campaign
against him "justified me in set-l
ting up the most elaborate cam-J
paign that I know of."
He said union members were
'coerced and bludgeoned" into1
contributing $2 each to a "slush1
fund" to elect Ferguson.

last week, that "special interests"''
poured money into Taft's cam-I
paign, "completely false.''

MUNSAN, Korea, Tuesday. Nov.
27-(IP)-Allied and Red truce ne-
gotiators today approved a pro-
visional Korean cease-fire line,
then made separate proposals on
ways of supervising the truce.
The UN command proposed a
Red-Allide inspection team, free to
travel anywhere in Korea to make
sure that neither side builds up its
- armed forces after an armistice
An Allied spokesman said the
Red proposal called for a joint
armistice commission responsible
for armistice arrangements and
He said it offered no provision
for inspection behind the lines.
The buffer line was worked out
in four months of bitter negotia-
tions ruptured by several long sus-
pensions of the truce talks.

allel 38 on the east coast, 28 miles

This cease-fire line will become
permanent only if the last three
issues on the armistice agenda are
settled within 30 days--by Pee. 27.f
All these issues-supervision I
of the truce, exchange of pri-
soners and recommendations to
the belligerent governments on

troops from Korea-are loaded

Reception for Hatchers
To Follow Inauguration
Hill Auditorium To Be Setting
For Resplendent Inaugural Scene
By CAL SAMRA
Today is Hatcher day.
At 3 p.m. in Hill Auditorium, Harlan Henthorne Hatcher, who
took over the helm of the University Sept. 1, will be honored and
formally inaugurated as eighth president of the oldest educational
institution in Michigan.
THOUGH THE WEATHERMAN predicts cloudy and colder, the
stage is set for what promises to be the most resplendent presidential
inauguration in University history.
At this time, 457 official college delegates, 55 college presi-
dents, State legislators, alumni and a host of celebrities are
streaming into Ann Arbor to take part in the inaugural cere-
On hand for this special occasion will be the President's former
colleague at Ohio State, President Howard Bevis, Gov. G. Mennen
Williams, and retired President Alexander G. Ruthven.
The auditorium will also be teeming with University officials,
Regents, alumni, faculty members, emeritus professors, news-
paper editors, high school officials, students, and a goodly portion
of the general public.
The significance of the occasion has even brought the Union to
abandon for a day its long-standing rule prohibiting women to enter
its front doors. Women will also be permitted to eat in the cafeteria
and tap room-unescorted-today,
** ' . *
THOUGH THE 4,200 seating capacity of Hill is limited, students
who didn't get tickets for the inauguration ceremonies may watch an
august academic procession file into Hill at 2:45 p.m.
Classes-for all students- will be dismissed at noon today,
under an agreement of the Dean's Conference.
After a University-sponsored luncheon, at 2:15 p.m., more than 457
delegates, representing 313 colleges and universities and 144 pro-
fessional societies, will asssemble at the Natural Science Bldg. and
line up according to the date of the founding of thei institutions.
Leading off will be H. E. Torres, consul of Mexico in Detroit,
representing the National University of Mexico, founded in 1515.
Torres will be followed by Lawrence J. Verdier, of Detroit, presi-
dent of the Harvard Club of Eastern Michigan, representing Har-
vard University (1636).
Delegates from other colleges and universities, members of pro-
fessional societies, and the University's faculty will follow.

AT 2:45 P.M., led by President Hatcher, the robed procession
will move across N. University-under a specially-made canvass awn-
ing-to an auditorium decorated with the flags of the United Ngtions.
When the inaugural ceemony gets under way at 3 p.m., sit
ting on the platform will be University deans, directors, officers,
Regents, emeritus professors, Gov. Williams, President Ruthven,
President Bevis, and President Hatcher.
With Regent J. Joseph Herbert presiding, the Rev. William P.
Lemon of the First Presbyterian Church will give the invocation.
President Bevis will then address the assembly on "The Un-
explored Continent." (Wen Bevis was installed as president at
OSU, Hatcher, then a member of the faculty, gave the main ad-
Regent Roscoe O. Bonisteel will install President Hatcher, who
subsequently will present the traditional inaugural speech. Singing
of the "Yellow and Blue" and a benediction by the Rev. Fr. Frank
J. McPhillips of St. Mary's Student Chapel will conclude the ceremony.
But President and Mrs. Hatcher will face two more hours of
hand-shaking from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the League, where a reception
will be held in theiir honor.
TODAY'S FESTIVITIES will be the crystallization of the strenu-
ous work of several committees, comprised of University officials,
faculty members and students, under the general chairmanship of
Frank E. Robbins.
Assistant to the President Robbins' only regret is that "we
aren't holding a double inauguration-including President Ruth-
ven," Ruthven was an outstanding administrator at the University
for 22 years but was never formally inaugurated.
"I guess we by-passed him," Robbins remarked. The other six
University presidents, however, were installed with flamboyant cere-
SINCE COMING to 'the University, President Hatcher has won
a reputation for indefatigable energy. Besides acquainting himself
with the University's detailed operations, he has conferred with ad-
ministrative officers on re-allocation of duties, with faculty leaders
on policies and procedures, and with students on current problems.
In demand as a speaker, the President has addressed alumni
and other clubs from New Haven, Conn, to Houston, Tex.,
averaging three such engagements weekly.
Faculty members appear to be impressed with the tireless new
president's modesty, friendliness, and willingness to delegate authority.
Regent Herbert characterizes him as "a leader who meets the
test of Michigan's traditions."
PRESIDENT HATCHER, a native of Ironton, O., completed col-
lege preparatory work at Morehead State College in Kentucky.
Following receipt of his doctoral degree from Ohio State
University in 1927. he studied at the University of Chicago and
