confidence last night, as he was
re-elected by acclamation.
The 21 year old senior from De-

Radio Stations
Of East, West
WEQN, the East Quad radio sta-
tion, yesterday readmitted - the
West Quad station WQRS to their
inter-dormitory radio union, after
a week long divorce between the
two stations.
The action followed a dead-
locked meeting between represen-
tatives of the East, South and
West Quads which started Tues-
day and dragged to an undecided
finish early yesterday.
' AT THE MEETING Bill Gerson,
152, station manager of WEQN
apbligized to the West Quad for
cutting them from the network,
a mom which he said "was made
on the kasis of erroneous reports
from his representatives at last
week's West Quad council meet-
The severing of radio relations
between the two dorms had fol-
lowed the reports which indi-
cated that the #council had re-
Jected an East Quad plan for a
cooperative radio station in
which the three men's dorms
would be equally represented.
The plan called for:
1. A centralized station to be
controlled by a central committee
composed of two representatives
from each of the quads, one neu-
tral student not connected with
radio and a faculty member.
2. A central managerial staff.
3. A central transmitter with

of their previous service and
achievements on the cabinet,
while Pearson was backed by his
nominator for the post chiefly
on the grounds that grooming in
a high cabinet post was neces-
sary for a promising junior and
potential president next year.
A striking unanimity was seen
during most of the elections, as
four of the new cabinet members
ran without opposition. In addi-
tion to Wilcox, Phil Berry, '52BAd,
Robin Glover, '53, and Phyllis
Kaufman, '53, won unanimous
election to treasurer, recording
and corresponding secretary posts
In the first round, Miss Marks
came back from her unsuccess-
ful vice-president bid to win re-
election to a cabinet member-at
large slot over Bob Perry, '53E,
and Joe White, '53.
The second election found Howie
Willens, '53, staging a mild upset
win over Perry and White.
* *~ *
ALSO AT the meeting, freshman
legislator Valerie Cowen, '54, regis-
tered a loud protest to the ap-
pointments of two affiliates, Karin
Fagerburg and Sondra Diamond,
to the joint SL-Panhellenic Asso-

ciation committee investigating
sorority bias clauses.
IHowever, Mike McNerney, '53,
and Miss Marks reported that,
as they understood, Panhel
agreed to the joint committee
with the understanding that the
SL delegates would be affiliated.
Panhel president Bev Clarke was
unavailable for comment on the

OTHER legislators rose to de-
clare that no independent-affiliate
split existed, and that affiliation
should not be a factor in consider-
ing the appointments. SL approved
the names by asmall majority.
Perry, who doubles as legislator
and representative on the Board in
Control of Intercollegiate Ath-
letics, reported that the board last
week, in response to the SL offer
to aid financially 'in printing free
fotoball programs at the games
next year, suggested that each stu-
dent be charged five cents when he
picked up his tickets to defray the
cost of such programs.
However, the Legislature reject-
ed this suggestion on Perry's
recommendation, on the grounds
that it didn't represent the solu-
tion to the problem the students

By Deaii Bacon
Women students have voted al-
most unanimously to accept Dean
of Women Deborah Bacon's pro-
posal for a Women's Panel, it was
revealed at a League Board of
Representatives meeting yesterday.
The three women panel, pro-
posed by Dean Bacon earlier this
month, will have complete dis-

WITH 80% of campus women
voting, the measure was passed by
the overwhelming majority of
2,331 to 229.
Dean Bacon expressed pleas-
ure that women students had
accepted the proposal so readily,
although she admitted that she
had expected a favorable return
if the women were just given
enough time to consider the
overall effects of the new pro-
"Te panel will go into effect
just as soon as it can be set up,"
she said, "undoubtedly before the
end of this semester."

few minor changes will have to be

probation is given only on request
of the violator.
Under the dean's probation,
the offender must immediately

are not included but she may not
hold any house office.
The probationer must also work

Internal Revenue Agents
Ousted in Tax Clean-Up
WASHINGTON-(P)-A big broom swept through the scandal-
ridden Internal Revenue Service yesterday and when the dust had
settled 31 "unsuitable" employes had been ousted from jobs in 16 cities.
President Truman fired James G. Smyth, San Francisco's Tax
Collector, for "failing to manage his office properly."
REVENUE COMMISSIONER John B. Dunlap ousted 30 others,
including nine deputy collectors. He said 13 had been fired outright

TOKYO, Thursday, Nov. 29-(AP)j
-Reported Allied orders to halt
the ground fighting in Korea-at
least for the time being-puts an
entirely new slant on the armistice
negotiations at Panmunjom.
If true, and the Eighth Army
denies it, it means that the United
Nations has voluntarily deprived
itself of what it has time and time
agaip declared was its only wea-
pon for making the Communists
talk peace-the threat of contin-
ued war.
Farneti said yesterday he saw a
copy of the Eighth Army order.
By military pressure, the UN
leaders meant mostly ground
action, fighting between foot
soldiers, the pulverizing pound-
ing of artillery and mortar--all
of which came to an abrupt halt
In addition, by calling off the
ground war, even for 30 days, the
Eighth Army commanders will
have made a complete 180-degree
turn from their previous state-
ments that they could not allow
the soldiers to become stale
through inaction.
THIS WAS the reason advanced
by Gen. James A. Van Fleet,
Eighth Army Commander, in ex-
plaining his orders for past of-
fensives carried out while the
truce talks were going on.
Release of stories about the
"cease fire" orders caught Tokyo
by. surprise. They were com-
pletely opposite from what the
United Nations leaders, from
Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway down,
had been saying day in and day
The big question at the moment
was what effect the move will
have on the truce talks.
No matter how you slice it the
UN apparently has done what it
said it would never do-give the
Communists a de-facto cease fire
before the Reds signed a full ar-
mistice, providing for the ex-
change of prisoners and supervi-
sion of the truce

When the matter came up today

accused the Reds of seeking a
peace treaty instead of an armis-

Vice Adm. C. Turner Joy said

treaty and an armistice."
IN FLORIDA, President Tru-

In Washington, the Defense
Department said it had received
no official information on the
halt in ground fighting and said
General Ridgway had been ask-
ed for clarification.
Cease fire negotiators were
scheduled to resume their talks as
usual today. Yesterday they were
at loggerheads on item three of
the armistice agenda-supervision
of the Korean armistice.

ACTUALLY, the cease-fire line
ratified Tuesday by armistice ne-
gotiators at Panmunjom did not
specify'that ground fighting-should
stop. The cease-fire agreement
simply provided that the line
drawn Nov. 27 should become the
cease-fire line if a full armistice
were concluded within 30 days.

eluded, the negotiators agreed, a
new line would be drawn based
on battle positions after the 30-
day deadline. The Allies insisted
on a clause stating that hostili-
ties would continue.
Truce negotiators ran into new
trouble yesterday. The Reds fiat-
ly refused to set up joint inspec-
tion teams to police the truce and
to ban military build-ups after an
armistice is signed.
The Allies consider such provi-
sions essential in supervising an

Varsity Stars Defend
College Grid Systemt

Cheered on by a highly appre-
ciative audience, two members of
the Varsity football squad shed
their maize and blue uniforms to
defend big time football at yester-
day's second speech assembly.,'
The newly appointed captain for
next year, Merritt Green, '53,
strongly asserted that "the recent
athletic scandals are not so widely
spread as the newspapers indi-
cate." He blamed any illegal prac-
tices on the "immense pressure
which is brought to bear on the
coaches by fans and alumni."

college football against the argu-

as "too much time spent on the
football field, farcical post season
games, pressure on the players,
lax educational standards and sub-

by Stribe's assertion that football
has long range values.
"We are students here and
have come to continue our physi-
cal, mental and character de-
velopment," Stribe added.
He supported this argument on
the grounds that "there are ethical
values involved in football. A play-
er learns to show compassion and
understanding for the opposing
teams and for the fans," he said
