Libby Accused of Deceit by Reds;

Korean truce talks deteriorated yesterday to a level of bitter name-

gaging in deceit and "a big lie" in urging a prisoner exchange favor-

At the front, desultory air and ground war went on.

Technology .devises Smoker's Robot

By HELENE SIMON
Modern technology, inventor of
the atom bomb, rocket ships and
Kleenex dispenser has now brought
us the "smoker's robot."
This latest addition to our gad-
get-filled society impresses the on-
looker as a glorified Turkish water
pipe. The smoker's robot is com-
posed of a chrome base, which

holds the lighted cigarette, and a
long tube through which the smok-
er can inhale.
THE PRIMARY motive for its
invention was safety. This modern
hookah will enable tobacco addicts
to smoke in bed without danger
of setting themselves on fire.

Of Soviet Atomic Proposals

PARIS -(A)-- The three big
Western powers yesterday called
on the UN Political Committee to
send Russia's revised atomic pro-
posals .to the new disarmament
commission for a thorough ex-
amination.
They rejected completely the
remainder of Moscow's peace
package-the demand for UN con-
demnation of membership in the

BERLIN -(A)-- Two missing
British diplomats who know a. lot
about Anglo-American affairs
were reported being held in Mos-
cow's grim Lubiyanka prison yes-
terday.
A diplomat recently returned
from the Soviet capital who asked,
that his name not be used said the
two men, Guy Burgess and Donald
MacLean, first were held for
months in Prague, Czechoslovakia,
presumably for interrogation by
Soviet secret police.
Then they were transferred to
the big prison in Moscow reserved
for high-priority political cap-
tives, and their captivity is com-
mon knowledge among diplomats
in Moscow, he said.
The two men disappeared last
May 25 after landing from a
channel boat at St. Malo, France.
Months of searching by British
and European detectives over
West Europe have turned up no
published clues as to their where-
abouts or the motives behind their
disappearance.
MacLean, 38, was head of the
American section of the British
Foreign Office and had a tho-
rough inside knowledge of high-
level and secret dealings between
the two countries.

North Atlantic Treaty Organiza-
tion, Russian ideas for ending the
Korean conflict and the proposal
for a big five peace pact.
LOSING NO TIME after week-
end consultations, French delegate
Jean Chauvel introduced for the
United States, France and Britain
a brief resolution simply referring
to the disarmament commission
the proposals on atomic energy of-
fered by Russia's Andrei Vishin-
sky.
In his revised resolution put up
at the end of a two-hour speech
Saturday, Vishinsky changed sig-
nals on these two points: Ee said
(1) a convention should be drawn
up for the prohibition of atomic
weapons and for international
controls, to take effect simul-
taneously, and (2) there should
be . continuing inspections for
atomic violations.
Heretofore Russia has consist-
ently demanded, except for a
brief time in 1948, the immediate
prohibition of atomic weapons
with a scheme for controls to be
agreed upon later.
Extend Retrial
PetitionPeriod
Deadline for a possible motion
for a new trial in the case of David
Royal was extended by 20 days
yesterday.
The 18 year old Ypsilanti youth,
who faces a 22 year to life prison
term on a second degree murder
conviction in the mallet-slaying of
Nurse Pauline Campbell, was sen-
tenced Dec. 26.
Circuit Judge James R. Breakey,
Jr., signed the extension after
Royal's attorney, Albert J. Rapp,
and Prosecutor Douglas K. Read-
ing agreed on a new trial limit.
The original 20 day period after
sentencing in which to file a re-
trial motion expired yesterday

But the robot is far from limited
to the bedroom.
The person who feels the need
for a cigarette even when walk-
ing down the street in a typical
Ann Arbor deluge often has a
soggy cigarette to contend with.
With the robot tucked away in
his pocket however even the Ann
Arborite can smoke via the tube
and keep his cigarette dry.
A stirring testimonial was given
by one coed who was constantly
bothered by smoke in her eyes
while studying. She was presented
with the handy smoker's robot,
and now declares, "My grades have
risen considerably because I get
much more meaning out of my
textbooks when my eyes aren't
weeping and I can see the printed
page clearly."
One of the local distributors for
the chrome cigarette holder said
that he has almost sold his com-
plete stock of them. "I think the
inventor had a tremendous idea,"
he commented.
According to the merchant, the
gadget seems to have more popu-
larity with women that with men.
Churchill Says
United West
WGill Prevail
OTTAWA--()-Prime Minister
Churchill declared yesterday that,
even though no one can predict
what will happen, the West has
"the life strength and guiding
light" needed to bring a tormented
world to safety.
"We shall provide against-and
thus prevail over-the dangers and
problems of the future, withhold
no sacrifice, grudge no toil, seek
no sordid gain, fear no foe. All
will be well."
T H E 77-YEAR-OLD British'
statesman called the 12-nation
North Atlantic Pact the "surest
guarantee, not only of the preven-
tion of war, but of victory, should
our hopes be blasted."'
"No one can predict with cer-
tainty what will happen. All
can see for themselves the
strange clouds that move and
gather on the horizons. But this
time, at any rate, we all united
from the beginning."
Churchill said that his four-day
conference with President Truman
last week had convinced him the
North Atlantic Treaty is now more
than a defense alliance.

Tax Clean-up
Plan Given
To Congress
President's Bill
Meets Opposition
WASHINGTON --(RP)- Presi-
dent Truman submitted to Con-
gress yesterday his plan to lift
the scandal-plagued Internal Re-
venue Bureau out of the realm of
political patronage, and he re-
newed his promise to crack down
on wrongdoing in government.
In a message to the lawmakers,
the President declared:
"The most vigorous efforts are
being made and will continue to be
made to expose and punish every
government employe who misuses
his official position."
THE PRESIDENT'S reorganiza-.
tion plan immediately ran into op-
position in the Senate where some
senators reflected dissatisfaction
over Mr. Truman's proposal to cut
down the number of regional tax-
collection offices from 64 to 25.
Several legislators noted pri-
vately that Mr. Truman's plan
would leave a number of the small-
er states without a regional of-
fice.
The President's program
would abolish the offices of the
nation's 64 politically appointed
tax collectors and replace them
with a new setup of 25 district
commissioners under civil ser-
vice.
Even as Mr. Truman's message
reached Capitol Hill, Rep. George
Meader (R-Mich.) demanded a
bipartisan investigation of "cor-
ruption" in the executive branch
of government.
* * *
THE MICHIGAN legislator in-
troduced a resolution to set up a
10-member inquiry committee,
composed of five Republicans and
five Democrats to be selected by
House Speaker Rayburn (D-Tex.).
Meader said in a statement
that Mr. Truman's recent desig-
nation of Attorney General Mc-
Grath to crack down on any un-
ethical conduct in government
showed a "callous contempt for
the American people and public
interest."
"The President has chosen to
suppress a thoroughgoing public
airing of conditions by delegating
the cleanup task to the departe
ment whose inactivity in the en-
forcement of the laws has so
greatly contributed to the creation
of that condition,"Meader said.
Union Opera
Title Disclosed
The secret is out.
The 1952 Union opera will be
called "It's Never Too Late." Pro-
motion director Mark Sandground,
'52, in announcing the title, also
revealed that auditions for the
musical satire of radio and TV
will be held the first week of next
semester.
Tryouts, open to all men on
campus, have been slated for Feb.
12 through Feb. 15 in the Union.
Applications for administrative
and backstage posts, which this
year are open to women for the
first time, are now being accepted,
Sandground said. Those interested
may contact Sandground at
2-8809.

WASHINGTON-IP)--An influ-
ential group of senators welcomed
yesterday the dropping of Gen.
Mark Clark's nomination -as Am-
bassador to the Vatican, express-
ing hope that President Truman t
has given up his idea of an Ameri-
can envoy there.
But the White House made it
clear that Clark's exit from theK
controversy did not mean Mr.t
Truman has changed 1}is mind.,
"THE PRESIDENT plans to
submit another nomination at a
later time," the White House said
Sunday night in announcing Mr.
Truman had abandoned his plan
to re-submit Clark's name.
Clark, chief of army field
forces, said through an aide that
thn "controversy which has de-
veloped" caused him to ask the
President to withdraw his name.
The.controversy is mainly a re-
ligious one.
Protestant groups have objected,
that establishment of full diplo-
matic relations would violate the
principle of separation of church
and state. Roman Catholics al-C
most unanimously endorse the
proposal.
The United States has never1
sent an Ambassador to the Vati-
can, although in the early days of
its history it had a Minister to the3

sent Myron G. Taylor to Rome ini

Finds Room

For YR Bid
Progran Awaits
'U' Approval
By VIRGINIA VOSS
Sen. Robert A. Taft has man-
aged to find room in his crowded
pre-convention campaign schedule
for an Ann Arbor appearance
April 16, Young Republicans pres-
ident Floyd Thomas, '52, announc-
ed yesterday.
Taft's acceptance of the YR's
long-standing invitati.: to speak
here was revealed yesterday by
Arthur E. Summerfield, Republi-
can National Committeeman from
Flint. The HAl Auditorium ad-
dress will be open to the public
without charge,
ONE OF FOUR candidates for
the Republican nomination for
president, Taft will speak here on
a stopover between Detroit and
Lansing.
According to Thomas, Taft's
name is now before the Univer-
sity Lecture Committee for ap-
proval.
Taft must be cleared through
the speaker's committee under a
Board of Regents ruling that no
speaker can use University prop-
erty to further his own political
cause. The 1949 ruling states that
the speech must "serve the' edu-
cational interests of the academic
community.'
* * *
YOUNG Republicans, however;
are confident that Taft will be
allowed to speak.
Thomas explained that "Sen.
Taft's address will not be a cam-
paign speech. We hope his ap-
pearance will give students a
graphic lesson in politics in this
critical election year," Thomas
stated.
Another prospective GOP nom-
inee, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower,
will be represented here on Feb-
ruary 16 by his self-appointed
campaign manager, Sen. Henry
Cabot Lodge. Sen. Lodge's talk is
being co-sponsored by the Young
Republicans and the City and
County Republican Committees.
The Young Republicans have as
yet received no final answer to
their invitation to another pres-
idential possibility, Gov. Earl War-
ren, to appear in Ann Arbor.
The issue of inviting Taft to
speak here had previously caused
a dispute between the Young Re-
publican membership and former
president, Dave Cargo, Grad. Car-
go was accused of "going over the
club's head" in inviting Gov. War-
ren before the first-choice speaker.
Taft, had replied to his invitation.
Following the dispute, Cargo re-
signed his Young Republican pres-
idency to head an "Eisenhower for
President" club.
Among other campus political
groups, the "Lawyers for Taft"
club was "pleased" by Taft's ac-
ceptance of the local speaking en-
