Iran OrdersOil
Wr sBlown Up
If Britain Invades.
TEHRAN, Iranr-The government of Iran has ordered that all in-
stallations at the oil port of Abadan be blown up if any foreign forces
try to land on.Iranian soil, a member of the National Defense Board
said last night. I
He declared the Iranian Army was ordered on the alert throughout
Khuzistan Province in which Abadan is located.
THE DECISIONS were taken at an extraordinary Defense Board
meeting after rumors of possible landing of British forces in Iran.
Meanwhile in London, Prime Minister Attlee called on Presi-

,Of Disloyal
Special to The Daily
DETIROIT - Michigan lawyers
will tangle today on a proposal to
bar "subversive" attorneys from
practice in the state as the State
. Bar goes into the second day of
its annual convention here.
The recommendation, drafted
by a committee headed by Dean
E. Blythe Stason of the Law
I School, urges that disloyalty to
the Government be made a speci-
fic ground for disbarment. It al-
so proposes that the State Police
anti-subversive squad be required
to supply information concerning
lawyers under suspicion.
** *
THE REPORT declares that
disbarment proceedings should be
taken only against actual mem-
bers of the Communist Party or
epersons who advocate the over-
throw of government."
Sparking opposition to the
recommendation is the Detroit
Lawyers' Guild, which mailed a
pamphlet attacking the pro-
posal to each of the State's 7,.
000 lawyers.
Guest speaker at the conven-
tion's opening proceedings yester-
-,day was University President Har
Ian H. Hatcher, who called upon
members of the legal profession
to develop a law which preserves
"the sound and good of the old
order in the creation of the new."
"It is not enough to take the
body of law as it presently exists
and direct clients through its
loopholes f o r t h e i r personal
gains," the president said.
* * * ,
HE EMPHASIZED that "chang-
es have come so fast that we have
not sensed their relationship to
crises we have met and new di-
rections we must take from time
to time."
"Wemust advance on those
sectors of modern life which
are not yet subject to controls
of law and order," President
Hatcher declared.
He added that the need for le-
gal development is so urgent that
if it is not filled wisely by judges
and lawyers, "it will be filled un-
wisely by shoddy substitute or
capriciously by undirected force
or change."

o help Britain keep her oil men
in Iran, informed sources said
The British government protest-
ed to Iran against Premier Mo-
hammed Mossadegh's order for the'
expulsion by next Thursday of the
300-odd British technicians who
have remained at the shut-down
refinery center of Abadan on a
caretaker basis.

SECRETARY of State Acheson
announced in Washington that the
United States and Britain are giv-
ing urgent consideration to possible
further action in the crisis which,
has been building up since Iran na-
tionalized Iranian properties of the
British-owned Anglo-Iranian oil
company last spring.
London informants said the
Attlee message likely made clear
that Britain is determined to
.stay on in Abadan.
Attlee's cabinet is expected to
decide finally tomorrow whether
Britain will use force if necessary
to retain a foothold in the rich
Iranian industry. Her oil men de-
veloped the works over a 50-year
period to a production of more
than 30,000,000 tons annually.,
Word from President Truman may,
influence the session.
DETAILS of Attlee's reported'
approach to President Truman
have not been disclosed. Broadly,,
however, it was understood the
Prime Minister wanted to make
plain to the United States what he'
thinks of the implications of Mos-
sadegh's moves.
The United States, at least until'
today, has taken the view that
British military action should be'
taken only to protect British lives.
The American attitude seems to
sterns from a fear Russia might
make the landing of British troops
a pretext for action in Northern
Iran. Under a 1921 treaty, the Rus-
sians were given the right to enter
if Iran was attacked.
The first pep rally of the sea-
son will begin at 7:15 p.m. to-
morrow at the Union.
As soon as the crowd has
gathered the marching band
will lead a torchlight parade to
South Ferry Field where songs
and cheers are planned. Harry
Kipke, former head coach at
the University will be the fea-
tured speaker.
Rallies are also planned for
the Stanford, Northwestern and
Ohio State games by the Wol-
verine Club committee in charge
of arranagements.

Boyle Client
Deal Hit
At Hearing
ate Investigations Subcommittee
yesterday required Washington
lawyer Max Siskind to tell pub-
licly the names of a group of cli-
ents he took over from Democratic
National Chairman William M.
Boyle, Jr., and represented before
government agencies.
Protesting to the end that it was
a violation of his rights, Siskind
finally began the recitation. He re-
ported "satisfactory" settlements
in the first eight cases he men-
tioned from a list of 23.
* * *
THE 23 CASES were those he
had sworn earlier he purchased
from Boyle in 1949 for an agreed
price of $150,000, with no written
agreement. Sen. Nixon (R-Calif.)
denounced the deal as a "subter-
fuge" to hide the true financial
relationship between Boyle and
Siskind accused Nixon of "be-
ing unfair" to him, and denied
the accusation.
Insisting that Boyle sold the
cases to him after Boyle became
the salaried Democratic National
Vice Chairman, and had nothing
to do with them since, Siskind
named the Simpson Oil Co., Cape
Girardeau, Mo., as one which he
said he represented when it got a
Reconstruction Finance Corp. loan
of "about $350,000" in August,
Fewer Draft

ried men and also scheduled two
new 'college' qualification tests.
The first test will be given
Thursday, Dec. 13, primarily for
students whose academic year -.

will be given Thursday, April 24.
THE NEW regulations narrow

They for the first time also:
1. Lower physical standards to
those that prevailed in Jan. 1945,
and reduce mental requirements.
2. Make aliens with permanent

SL Adds Seven Members


Appointment of seven new
members, election of a new sec-
retary and discussion of library
hour curtailment and the bias
clause time limit veto highlight-
ed the year's first Student Legis-
lature meeting last night.
The, seven newcomers to the SL
roster 'are Bert Braun, '54, Dave
Brown, '53, Gerry Gleich, '53,
Connie Newman, '53, Barbara
Ochs, '52, Nancy Watkins, '52, and
Rog Wilkens, '53. The slate was
nominated by the cabinet and all
but Miss Watkins were approved
unanimously by the Legislature.
One member objected to Miss
Watkins on the grounds that her
duties as president of the Senior
class might conflict with her SL
* * *
THE CANDIDATES were picked
by the cabinet on the basis of
past service on theSL,bunsuc-
cessful candidacy and/or volun-
teer work with SL committees.
The vacancies were created
by the graduation of Mary Um-
smel and Tom Walsh, the trans-
fer of Alice Spero, and the
scholastic ineligibility of Judy
Gallop, '53, Dave Guttentag,
'53E, Gordon MacDougall, '52,
and Gerald Abramow, '53.
The appointments are good only
till the fall campus-wide elections,
which ,last night were scheduled
for Nov. 13 and 14. Just what
Editors Pick
Truman, Taft
As Nominees
men who run America's leading
newspapers took a quick look at
the 1952 Presidential election yes-
terday and in an Associated Press
Managing Editors Association poll
1. President Truman to win the
Democratic nomination again next
2. Senator Taft of Ohio to cap-
ture the Republican nomination.
3. But Gen. Dwight Eisenhower,
if he became the standard bearer
of either, partr, could defeat either
Truman or Taft.
The poll was made on the
basis of returns from half the
250 managing editors attending
a four-day convention in San
The editors voted 115 to 7 that
Truman would be the Democratic
nominee. They voted almost 2 to
1 that Taft would get the GOP
nomination over Eisenhower.
Earlier, the editors were called
upon to fight a joint battle against
the "tightening down of news bar-
riers" at home and abroad.
The main targets were two-fold:

will be done about the unexpired
terms of Guttentag, Abramow,
and Miss Gallop, which run till
next spring, will be decided by the
Legislature at a later date.

IN AN uncontested 'election,
Robin Glover, '53, swept unani-
mously into a cabinet post as she
was selected as new secretary to
replace the departed Miss Spero.

SL Asks for

The Student Legislature is seek-
ing eleven co-sponsors for its Ci-
nema Guild productions this fall,
Bob Baker, '52, chairman of the
Cinema Guild, announced yester-
Judging from last year's opera-
tions,-the co-sponsorship is a verit-
able gold mine for any interested;
organization, Baker declared. It
entails little responsibility-and
the co-sponsoring group is pro-
tected against loss by a newly set
up insurance fund.

Those groups interested in co-
sponsoring may pick up petitions.
from 3 to 5 p.m. Oct. 1 to 5 at
the SL building, 122 S. Forest.
These must be returned by Oct.
8, with interviews scheduled for
Oct. 10 and 11. /
The groups will be chosen on the
basis of relative need for funds, de-
gree to which the group's program
affects the whole campus and its
record of financial responsibility,
according to Baker.
Baker pointed to last year's sta-
tistics in supporting his claim that
this. co-sponsorship deal is a gilt-
edged enterprise. The cooperating
organizations made a collective
profit of $2117.39. Four groups
lost money, but will be reimbursed
by SL.
The net profits are spliththree
ways, with 70% going to the co-
sponsor, 20% to SL and 10% to
an insurance fund which will
guarantee that none of the groups
lose money.

Miss Glover was elected to SL
last spring, has since served on

She has distinguished herself in
SL meetings for her brief but
salty and cogent comments at
crucial points in the debate.

LIBRARY HOUR c urtailment
came in for lengthy discussion as
SL president Len Wilcox, '52, re-
ported on the fight to reopen the
library on Sunday and Friday
night. It was his contention that
this battle could easily be won
by the students if concrete pres-
sure were brought to bear on the
proper authorities.
Wilcox declared that his un-
derstanding from conversations
with miscellaneous officials in-
volved was that the cut in li-
brary service was made because
the facilities wereanot being
used during the hours in ques-
The official reason given for
the slashed hours was that the
skimpy budget required this econ-
omy move.
S * * *
SL MOVED unanimously to
start a campaign of letter-writing
to Director of Libraries 'Warner
G. Rice. Correspondents were re-
quested by the group to list con-
crete reasons why the reduced
hours were hurting them. The
group felt that if student wrath
over the hour cuts were focussed
on the library officials, they might
reconsider the move.
The touchy discrimination is-
sue once again came up as the
Legislature debated what course
of action to follow in lieu of
retired University President
Alexander G. Ruthven's veto of
the bias clause time limit pass-
ed last year by SL and ap-
proved by thebStudent Affairs
Wilcox felt that new President
Harlan H. Hatcher had not yet
committed himself one way or the
other on the issue, and that SL
should continue studying t h e
problem pending a clarification of
his viewpoint.
(However, Pres. Hatcher indi-
cated in a Daily interview earlier
that he considered the issue to be
more or less closed.)
SL proceeded to refer the bias
clause problem back to the Hu-
man and International Relations
Committee for further study.

Proof of Illegal

IN HIS SPEECH, Moody said he
would be "delighted" for Hoey's
group to check up on the Michigan
situation. Ferguson and Meader
had asked Moody to join in their
request for a probe.j
Moody agreed but added: "I am
sure that Mr. Ferguson will agree
that if the committee decides to
make any investigation of the fund
raising in Michigan it should go
into all practices of fund raising
in our state by both parties over
the past five years."

"That this meeting place
would be kept free of armed
troops and both sides would ab-
stain from any hostile acts or
exercise of authority over mem-
bers of the other side in their
passage to this point or while
they are there."
Allied personnel travelling to
Kaesong must now pass through a
Communist front line check point
at Panmunjom, about five miles
east of Kaesong.
RIDGWAY'S suggestion came
after Allied and Red liaison offi-
cers failed to meet for a fourth
session at Kaesongto discuss ways
of getting the suspended truce
parleys going again.
While truce talk maneuvering
continued, the Communists
threw a new, high-wing super
Mig into the greatest jet battle
in history yesterday in a day
that saw 256J ets in action.
American fighter pilots returned

Reports in Tokyo indicated the
new Red plane might be the Rus-
sian-made MIG-19.

The number of planes involved
dwarfed the 117 which fought his-
tory's longest jet battle Tuesday.

jets whipped 80 MIGs, shooting
down five and damaging five. The

jet was damaged.
Investment in
U.S. Bonds Hit
CHICAGO--(P)-Increased pro-
duction is the only sound basis for
old age pensions, University Prof
William Paton told the Illinois So-
ciety of Certified Public Accoun-
tants yesterday,
Prof. Paton, of the Economics
Department, said investment in
productive assets rather than gov-
ernment bonds will serve as a firm
foundation for pension plans.
Addressing the Society's annual
awards dinner, he said it is an
economic fact that retired persons
can live only on the goods pro-
duced during their retirement.
He said investment in govern-
ment bonds "affords no support
whatever for the increase in pro-
duction which is necessary if the
pension scheme is to have any hope
of long-run success."
