MUNSAN, Korea, Saturday, Jan.
12-0)-The Communists again
refused to answer the key question
of building North Korean air fields
today while four of their jets were
being shot down during a series
of five air battles, one within 30
miles of Panmunjom.
The Reds again dodged an an-
swer on whether they intend to
Big Powers'
Talks End
In Secrecy
WASHINGTON - () - A high-
level conference called to map
strategy in case Red China tried
to turn Indochina into another
Korea ended list night in an at-
mosphere of deep secrecy.
No statement was issued as the
military chiefs of the major Paci-
fic powers concluded their deliber-
ations.
The only words that had
emerged from the conference room
all day expressed grief at the
death in Paris of French Gen.
Jean De Lattre De Tassigny, best
known fighter against Communism
in Indochina.
Word of his passing at the age
of 61 was received by the conferees
as they faced up to the major is-
' sue before them: what will the
U.S., Britain and other nations
with high stakes in Southeast Asia
' do if Red China invades Indo-
china?
* * *
T H E SECRECY which had
shrouded preparations for the
t meetings continued throughout the
day. The only official guidance
about the purpose and scope of
the high level session came in the
Churchill - Truman communique
earlier this week. That statement
said the military leaders would
consider specific measures to
strengthen the security of South-
east Asia.
Although none of the partici-
pating nations-the U. S., Bri-
tain, France, Australia, Canada
and New Zealand-have publi-
city framed solutions to the In-
dochina question, diplomatic
sources indicated these lines of
approach:
No sensational solution may be
expected. The U. S., Britain and
the British Commonwealth repre-
sentatives probably will recom-
mend to their political superiors
prompt and energetic support for
any French appeal to the UN in
the event of an invasion in Indo-
china.
The deliberations may also tie
in with the security treaties the
U. S., has concluded with Aus-
tralia, New Zealand and the Phi-
lippines. These agreements are
now before the senate for ratifi-
cation.
Enterprise'
Skipper Lands
By The Associated P'ress
A tired little sailor in borrowed
clothes, Capt. Kurt C a r 1 s e n
stepped ashore a hero yesterday
after losing a gruelling fight to
save his Flying Enterprise from
Atlantic gales.
The dauntless skipper-20 days
out of Hamburg on a voyage that
ended in his first shipwreck-
landed at the Prince of Wales pier
in a small Cornish port with
Mate Kenneth Dancy of the Bri-
tish tug Turmoil, who rode the
hurricane-cracked freighter with
him for the final week of a two-
week epic.

The Enterprise plunged to the
bottom Thursday.
In New York, insurance of $800,-
000 on the Isbrandtsen Company
boat-64 per cent of the insur-
ance coverage on the ship - was
paid yesterday.
The ship was insured for a total
of $1,200,000. The remaining $400,-
000 is understood to be covered

build up air power in Korea dur-
ing a truce.
EXASPERATED Allied negotia-
tors warned them yesterday there
could be no progress toward a
truce until the Reds make their
intentions clear.
But Maj. Gen. Howard M
Turner, head of the truce sup-
ervision subcommittee, emerged
from a 50-minute meeting today
and said there was no progress.
"We continued to press for an
expression from their side on
their intent with regard to air-
fields," he said. "They will not give
us a clear answer. So we recon-
vene at 11 a.m. tomorrow."
A second subcommittee on ex-
change on war prisoners met on
schedule.
Meanwhile, Communist j e t
planes made their farthest pene-
tration south yesterday, but four
of them were shot down and one
was damaged in a series of five
air battles.
In the past the Red planes
have stayed within running
distance of the Manchurian bor-
der, over which American air-
men are forbidden to pursue.
Explaining their southward sor-
ties, Maj. William Waltman, U. S.
Fifth Air Force briefing officer,
said ,"They are probably just get-
ting more and more experience
under their belts. Our boys up
there today did not have any pic-
nic."
Don't Be Coy'
Senator Urges
Eisenhower
WASHINGTON--(M)- Republi-
can Sen. George Aiken of Vermont
suggested yesterday Gen. Dwight
D. Eisenhower should "come out
swinging and not be so coy" if the
General wants to be President.
Aiken, who has not openly en-
dorsed anyone for the GOP nom-
ination, declared the voters are
"entitled to know Ike's views." He
added to newsmen:
"If Gen. Eisenhower wants to be
President he should ask to be re-
lieved of his present job and make
his views known on domestic is-
sues."
The General said on Monday he
would obey a "clear-cut call to
political duty," but would not him-
self campaign for the GOP nom-
ination and would not ask Presi-
dent Truman to relieve him from
his post as Supreme Allied Com-
mander in Western Europe.
* * *
THE CAMPAIGN to nominate
Eisenhower got under way official-
ly yesterday in Concord, N. H.,
when six prominent Republicans
filed entries for the New Hamp-
shire primary election, listing
themselves as "favorable to" the
General.
Gov. Sherman Adams led the
group of candidates for delegates
to the GOP national convention.
Indications multiplied that Sen.
Robert A. Taft (R-Ohio) would
also be represented in the New
Hampshire elections, although no
candidates listed as "favorable" to
nhim fled entries on the first day.
Among the Democrats, James D.
McPhail of Manchester became
the first man in the country to file
as a candidate favorable to Presi-
dent Truman.

'U' Officials Say
w RBy CRAWFORD YOUNG
Immediate razing of five Uni-
versity classroom buildings as fire
hazards and eventual replacement
of five others was called for in a
report by State Fire Marshall Ar-
nold C. Renner made public yes-
University officials expressed
quick agreement that the build-
ings should be razed-but pointed
out that no funds were available
at this time to replace the much-
needed classroom space.

RENNER and five state police
detectives made a detailed survey
n of some 120 campus buildings this
fall, following out an order of Gov-
ernor G. Mennen Williams to in-
-Al Reid spect all state buildings after the
;NTURY disastrous state office building fire
last February.
It was pointed out by Director
of University Relations Arthur L:

been labelled as fire hazards in
previous reports. "We are making
slow but steady progress in elim-
inating our old structures," he
said.
The 50 page report recom-
mended for immediate razing
the following: West Medical
Building, Romance Languages
Building, Pharmacology and
Economics Buildings, temporary
journalism department quarters
at 512 S. State and East Ha-L
The report further urged the
following buildings be replaced
eventually: Temporary Class-
room Building, Engineering Re-
search Annex, School of Music
Maynard St. building, West En-
gineering Annex and Automobile
Laboratory.
West Medical, a brick and wood
joist structure built in 1903, should
be torn down because of "the type
of materials used and the very de-
plorable means of egress," Renner
declared.
* * *
RENNER also strongly criticized
the storage of explosive volatile
and inflammable liquids in the
basement, and suggested construe-
tion of an underground vault iso-
lated from the building.
The other buildings, all of
19th century vintage, contain
wooden partitions and Floors,
open stairwells and wooden
joists, fire hazards characteristic
of architecture of this period.
However, all but the temporary
journalism department building
will continue in use for some time,
University officials indicated. The
journalism department will move
to the new Angell Hall addition as
soon as it is completed, probably
next fall, with the final disposition
of the dingyr red stone structure
the department will vacate not

WASHINGTON-(AP)-The Gov-

civilian construction yesterday.
Announcing a new allocation ofj

600,000 new home starts this year.

last year and compares with a

homes a year.,I

letic code proposed by the Presi-
dents' Committee of the American
Council on Education.
In a sharply-worded "keynote"
Address before a joint meeting of
the NCAA and the American Foot-
ball Coaches association, Hovde
said it was "not right in principle"
that violations of the athletic code
should be punished by withdrawal
of academic accredidation.
The coaches put forth a program
in answer to his statement in a
hurried meeting of the American
Football Coaches' Association,
"THE PENALTY would be in-
flicted upon those members of the
faculty and student body who are
not in any way involved in the
violation," Hovde said. "In my
judgment, violations of the athle-
tic code should be penalized by
athletic penalties, not by academic
penalties."
The Purdue presMent, a for-

A year ago, he said, the Big Ten
coaches unanimously voted among
themselves to discontinue bowl
games but were not willing "to get
