Churchill Tells of
Rearmament Lag'
Answers Attack of Labor's Aneurin
Bevan; Says Slow-down Inevitable
LONDON-(IA)-Prime Minister Churchill said yesterday Britain
will be unable to complete her $13 billion defense program on schedule
in 1953.
"We shall get on as fast as we can," Churchill told the House of
Commons in reply to a question from Laborite left-winger Aneurin
Bevan. "We shall, do our best, but I should be very wrong not to
warn the House that there will be a lag, as there has been in all
munitions programs I have seen or been connected with."
SPEAKING as his own Defense Minister in debate, the Conserva-
tive chieftain referred to Bevan's prediction of last Spring that
Britain was trying, to rearm toot
fast. Churchill told the House H it
000 defense spending was behind a ver H its sche

Churchill told the House:
Britain has made consider-
able progress toward building
an A-bomb.
) There is less danger of World
War III nowsthan at any time
since the Berlin air lift of 1948
because of "deterrents against ag-
gression" created by the United
States, Britain and other nations
of the free West.
* * *
HE REFUSED to merge British
troops in the French-sponsored
project for a unified European
army, though Britain agrees "there
should be a European army and
that Germany must take an hon-
orable place in it." He said Bri-
tons would take their place beside
such a European army.
On atomic research, Churchill
said that when he came into office
as Prime Minister six weeks ago
he found much work had been
done. He said this work was "not
only on making the crucial mater-
ials required for the atomic bomb
but in preparing to manufacture
the weapon."
He indicated A-bomb develop-
ment would be one of the things
he will discuss with President Tru-
man in Washingto next month.

At Crisio4r's
Prof. Harry C. Carver, a mem-
ber of the Board in Control of
Intercollegiate Athletics, yester-
day leveled an attack on Athletic
Director Fritz Crisler's "control"
over University athletics.
Lending support "in the main"
to Prof. Hayward Keniston's re-
cent criticism of the Board's func-
tions, Prof. Carver charged that
faculty control of athletics does
not exist at the University.
':' *
PROF. CARVER, however, took
one step further by attacking
Prof. Crisler's "authority."
"We have director control at
the University," he said. "The
Athletic Director is automati-
cally chairman of the Board
and consequently, has 90 per
cent of the power."
The mathematics professor pro-
posed that a faculty member
should be chairman of the Board
and that the Athletic Director's
powers be limited.'
* * *,
PROF. CARVER also criticized
Prof. Crisler for refusing "to co-
operate fully with the University's
Alumni Office.
"Members of the last Univer-
sity administration are aware that
the Alumni Association and the
Athletic Department have not
been working together."
In reiterating the charges he
made at a recent meeting of the
American Association of Univer-
sity Professors, Prof. Carver said:
"If Crisler or members of the
athletic staff would cooperate
with the alumni office, they would
attract far more interest than
when we send out a professor of
English or mathematics . .."
At that same meeting, Prof.
Crisler had replied to Prof. Car-
ver's charges by indicating that
he would resign before he "would
beg for athletes or become a col-
lection agency for the Alumni As-

Grand Jury
Begins Tax
Fix Inquiry
Lawyer's Claims
Strongly Denied
WASHINGTON - (.) - Attor-
ney General McGrath yesterday
launched a grand jury investiga-
tion into Abraham Teitelbaum's
charges that two men, claiming
friendship with Federal officials,
tried to shake him down for $500,-
000 with promises of a "tax fix."
Teitelbaum, a wealthy Chicago
lavyer, told his sensational story
to! House tax probers Tuesday. He
sworeKthat Frank Nathan and
Bert K. Naster led him to believe
that they knew of a Washington
clique which was on the lookout
for "soft touches" like him, and
that for half a million they could
"make it easy" for him.
THE STORY has been denied
vigorously. Last night Rep. King
(D-Calif.), Chairman of the House
Ways and Means Subcommittee
conducting the inquiry, ordered a
transcript of the testimony, in-
cluding charges and denials, sent
to the Justice Department for
possible perjury prosecutions.
Nathan, a former Pittsburgh
promoter, made a categorial de-
nial of the shakedown story
Two names mentioned by Tei-
telbaum as members of the al-
leged Washington clique were
those of Charles Oliphant, Chief
Counsel for the Internal Revenue
Bureau, and T. Lamar Caudle,
formerly an Assistant Attorney
General in charge of tax fraud pro-
secutions for the Justice Depart-
ment. Both men have denied any
connection with the alleged plot.
Oliphant resigned Wednesday,
telling President Truman he was
the target of "attacks, vilification,
rumor and innuendo beyond the
point of human endurance."
Caudle was ousted by Mr. Tru-
man Nov. 16 for "outside activi-
ties" deemed incompatible with
his official duties.
Just before he announced the
grand jury probe yesterday, Mc-
Grath expressed complete confi-
dence in the integrity of the gov-
ernment's legal staff.
Suffocation Fatal
To Local Infant
A three-month-old Ann Arbor
baby, Jeffrey Derck, lost a fight for
life last night in the emergency
room of St. Joseph's Hospital.
A sheriff's car rushed the
baby to the hospital at a 75 mph
speed, but the child was pronoun-
ced dead after arrival.

Collins Says

Atomic Artillery
'Best in Defense'
WASHINGTON -(') - Gen. J.
Lawton Collins said yesterday the
United States has developed atom-1
ic artillery and he indicated that
such weapons may be ready for
combat use in the "not too distant"
The Army's Chief of Staff said1
atomic weapons will not revolu-
tionize ground warfare but they
will "greatly enhance theupower
of defense" and be of greater value
in defense than in attack.

COLLINS ADDED the Army al-
ready is making plans for the day
when atomic artillery and guided
missile battalions will replace some
of the conventional heavy artil-
He declined to say when the
Army expects to have tactical
atomic weapons. "It is not in
the too distant future," the Gen-
eral said, "but that is all I am
going to say."
Collins also declared:
(1) If Korean truce talks fail,
it is possible the Allies will bring
greater sea and air pressure
against Red China.
(2) The United Nations' defense
line in Korea is so strong that it
will hold "under any foreseeable
development that is likely to oc-

Discussing atomic artillery, Col-
lins said, "We have developed such

when it would be practicable to

atomic artillery "has been tested

Demand on Allies

Communist truce negotiators held out for a "price" yesterday on
discussing exchange of Allied prisoners of war in Korea as U.S. Air
Force battled Red jets over North Korea for the eleventh straight day.
The Reds said Allied acceptance of a Communist plan for super-
vising an armistice must come before they would talk about prisoners.
They made this evident after Allied delegates presented an eight
point revised plan for supervision of a truce which offered some con-
cessions to the Reds.
