Ambassador
Denies Being
Communist
Philip C. Jessup
Blasts McCarthy
WASHINGTON - (.) - Am-
bassador-at-Large Philip C. Jes-
sup swore yesterday he "never
faltered" in opposing Communism.
Denouncing any idea that he is
ready to sell out this country to
Soviet Russia, Jessup said Senator
McCarthy (R-Wis.) had tried to
put across that idea in his efforts
to block senate confirmation of
Jessup as a delegate to the United
Nations.
* * *
TIlE AMBASSADOR, a lean,
' grey, dry-humored man, appeared
as a witness before a Senate For-
eign Relations Subcommittee to
t reply to McCarthy's 10-hour bar-
rage of charges aired before the
inquiry group Tuesday.
"To associate me with ap-
peasement of the Soviet Union
is categorically contradicted by
the facts of my record as a pub-
lie servant," Jessup said.
He said some of McCarthy's evi-
dence was "absolutely dishonest."
Dealing with McCarthy' s
charges one by one, Jessup told
the Senators at the outset:
1"I will begin with the unquali-
fied declaration that Senator Mc-
# Carthy's allegationthat I was af-
filiated with six Communist fronts
is false-his photostats notwith-
standing."
THEN, REFERRING to McCar-
thy's assertion that Jessup has
"followed all the twists and turns
'- of the Communist line," the wit-
ness said:
"I will submit evidence which
will demonstrate that I have
not been a follower of the Com-
munist party line. I will intro-
duce evidence that the Com-
munists have attacked me with
a violence equal . to that dis-
played by the Senator froni
Wisconsin-and with far great-
er justification."
In his point-by-point denial,
Jessup disowned associating with
alleged Red fronts with frequent
use of such phrases as "my files
fail to disclose," "cannot even find
a record" and "only slight con-
tact."
* * *
THE AMBASSADOR, a top ad-
visor to Secretary of State Ache-
son, also declared at one point
that a suspect organization which
listed him' as a sponsor did so
"without any authorization from
me" and "misused my name."
Testifying in a brisk voice, Jes-
sup said he is still a member of
the much-investigated Institute of
Pacific Relations, but declared
that when he was a top IPR offi-
cial. his goal was to maintain
"scholarly objectivity and impar-
tiality."
IPR officials have denied any
pro-Red activity.
YD Challenge
For McCarthy
Talk Dropped
With an eye to the split in the
Young Republican club between
the McCarthyists and anti-Mc-
Carthyists, the Young Democrats,
in a meeting last night, heatedly

debated but finally dropped a pro-
posal to challenge the YR's to
bring McCarthy to the campus.
It was agreed that McCarthy, if
given enough rope in the form of
a Democratic Senator as a debat-
ing opponent might hang himself,
but it was conceded that it would
only dignify the senator by invit-
ing him to the campus.
After congratulating Dave
Cargo, president of the YR's, on
his stand within his club against
inviting McCarthy to the cam-
pus, the YD's extended an in-
vitation to Cargo to speak be-

SINCE AUG. 11, the Giants have
won 39 out of 47 games, for an in-
credible percentage of .830, over-
coming a Brooklyn lead of 13 /2
games.
Yet the Yankees were 8-5 fa-
vorites to beat them in the big
show because their good pitch-
ing staff was well rested since
clinching the American League
pennant last Friday.
Manager Leo Durocher-Base-
ball's onetime "bad boy" and now
sitting on top of the world-will
send Dave Koslo (10-9) to the
mound against the Yankee ace,
Allie Reynolds (17-8).

THE FIRST two games of the
series will be in Yankee Stadium
in the Bronx, which seats 70,000,
end then play will move to the
Polo Grounds, across the East Riv-
er on the island of Manhattan.
The Polo Grounds holds 55,000.
Two or if need be three games will
be played at the Polo Grounds in
the best four-out-of seven series,

IFC Announces
Rushing Total
Of 620 Men
A total of 620 men have regis-
tered for fraternity rushing this
fall, Pete Thorpe, '53, Interfra-
ternity Council Rushing chairman
announced last night.
A breakdown of the figure
shows 590 new rushees and 30 re-
registrants.
. *, *
THE NEW LIST marks a drop
of 48 from last fall's total of 668.
Last Spring 393 men signed up.
Thorpe pointed out that the
new rushing class represents a
percentage-wise gain over last
year when 4.96 per cent of the
male University enrollmnt reg-
istered. This year 5.42 per cent
of the men on campus signed
up, thus showing a .46 per cent
increase.
Irv Lawrence, chairman of the
IFC Enforcement committee, said
he received no reports of viola-
tions of the newly-revised rushing
rules.
The rushing program will con-
tinue at the fraternity houses
this week with lunches and smok-
ers. Pledge cards may be obtained
beginning Wednesday at the Ad-
ministration Bldg.

TOKYO-()-The Communists
today answered Gen. Matthew B.
Ridgway's proposal t h a t the
stalled Korean truce talks be
switched from Red-held Kaesong
to a nearby no-man's land.
A Communist liaison officer
handed the message to an Allied
officer at Panmunjom and ;aid it
was "in reply to General Ridg-
way from Generals Kim I Sung
(North Korea Premier) and Peng
Teh-Huai (Chinese Red Com-
mander in Koreae) ."
THE REDS broke a seven-day
silence on Ridgway's proposal.
The delivery came at a time
when the Allies showed a near
exhaustion of patience by explod-
ing heavy tank-led attacks on the
vital West Korean front.
Contents of the message were
not disclosed at once. But the
only matter pending was Red
reaction to Ridgway's Sept. 27
proposal that the talks be
moved six miles southeast of
controversial Kaesong in Red-
held territory to a battle zone
near Songhyon.
The latest Allied ground blows,
supported by one of the heaviest
artillery barrages of the war, fell
almost within earshot of Kaesong.
TODAY, IN response to a Red
request, two helicopters flew 'from
Munsan, 23 miles southeast of
Kaesong, to the Red checkpoint
at Panmunjom. There Allied liai-
son officers were handed the mes-
sage about 10 a.m. Fifteen min-
utes later, the party arrived back
in Munsan for transmission of its
contents to Ridgway's headquar-
ters in Tokyo.
Ridgway suggested the switch
in sites because Kaesong, in Red
held territory, had been plagued
by "incidents." The Allies have
denied responsibility for all but
two. They accused that some
of the rest were fabricated by
the Reds.
The Communists broke off the
talks Aug. 23 after charging the
Allies had bombed Kaesong.

HERO-Iran's Premier Mohammed Mossadegh rides on the shoul-
ders of cheering crowds in Tehran's Majlis Square, outside the
parliament building, after reiterating his oil nationalization views
to his public supporters. The frail premier, whose demands for
the ouster of British oil interests have created international ten-
sion, is awaiting a possible summons to appear before the United
Nations Security Council in New York. Britain's Sir Gladwyn
Jebb will seek to place the dispute before the UN group.

U.S. EIGHTH ARMY HEAD-
QUARTERS, Korea-(P)-The Al-
lies' autumn offensive erupted
with tanks and f4ame throwers
yesterday along a 40-mile front in
West and Central Korea.
Bitterly resisting Reds were
driven north in hand-to-hand
fighting for as much as two miles.
Heavily censored field dispatches
and a communique pinpointed the
furious action as sweeping north-
east from Korangpo to Kumhwa.
THE HEAVIEST fighting was
northwest of Korangpo, west of
Yonchon and east of Chorwon.
Yonchon is 35 miles north of
Seoul. Chorwon, southwest an-
chor of the iron triangle, is 17
miles north of Parallel 38.
After yesterday's thunderous
artillery barrage, British, Amer-
ican, Greek and Filipino troops
jumped off against Reds in the
west.
The Chinese Reds were hit so
hard on the ridgeline northwest of
Kumhwa that they pulled out last
night and gave up hill positions
without firing a shot. Previously
they had held off Allied attacks
there for three days.
A CO1MUNIQUE today report-
ed gains in Western Korea but did
not pinpoint them or give their
extent.
Allied fliers over the West and
West-Central Fronts looked for
any Reddmoves to reinforce their
assaulted front line troops.
They saw no signs but an Al-
lied commander said it was pos-
sible the Reds had moved up
fresh troops at night.
By last midnight, the advanc-
ing Allies had gained new hill pa-
sitions in a general area north-
west of the Imjin River.
WEST OF YONCHON, Ameri-
can troops hit even heavier resis-
tance. By noon they had repulsed
three Chinese counterattacks.
West of Chorwon, other advanc-
ing infantrymen made limited
,gains and beat off heavy counter-
attacks.

Shak y Story
DETROIT-(A')-Taxi driver
Abraham Sanon denied before
Traffic Referee Andrew C. Wood
that he was casually shaking
hands with a woman acquaint-
ance at a busy intersection
Aug. 12.
Sanon said he noticed in his
rear view mirror that a police
squad car was behind him so
he carefully stuck out his hand
to signal a left turn.
Sanon said indignantly, "I
never saw the woman before in
my life. She came staggering
out of a bar as I started to
make the turn, grabbed my
hand and started shaking it. I
had to stop my cab before I
could finally wrench free."
Wood suspended sentence.
BoyleH ired
RFC Man,
NixonS5ays
WASHINGTON - () - Sena-
tor Nixon (R-Calif.) told Senate
investigators yesterday that Dem-
ocratic National Chairman Wil-
liam M. Boyle Jr. had an RFC em-
ploye "on his payroll" in 1949 and
paid him $1,261.
Turney Gratz, who got the
money, told reporters it was for
"a personal accounting service" he
did in spare time and he had
nothing to do with any loans.
. * *
NIXON MADE his report to the
Senate's Investigations Subcom-
mittee, which is looking into
charges that Boyle received $8,000
from the American Lithofold
Corp., after the St. Louis Printing
Firm obtained $565,000 in loans
from the Reconstruction Finance
Corporation. T h e Democratic
chief has denied the charges.
There may be "some perfect-
ly plausible explanation" of the
payments to Gratz, Nixon told
the inquiry group, of which he
is a member. But without such
an explanation, he added, "It
would seem highly improper for
the Chairman of the Democratic
National Committee to have on
his payroll a $10,000 a year em-
ploye of the RFC."
Informed of Nixon's report,
Gratz explained that he kept track
of Boyle's investments for him
from 1946 until last year. "My
work had nothing to do with the
RFC or Bill Boyle's politial af-
fairs," Gratz said. He added that
he intends to tell his story to the
subcommittee's investigators as
soon as possible.
Reds March
In Indo-China
SAIGON, Indochina-(/P)--The
Communist-led Vietminh army
has launched its long awaited fall
offensive with two swift tactical
gains in Northwest Indochina.
The French announced yester-
day the loss of strong points 80
miles apart in the mountainous
Thai country west of the upper
Red River.
Three battalions of rebel infan-
trymen struck southwestward from
Laokay, a Red River stronghold
on Communist China's frontier,
and seized the fortress town of
Binhlu as its garrison withdrew
30 miles to Laighau, capital of the
Thai Federation.

explosive tests in recent days or
weeks - one of them a failure.
These sources said the data
already studied indicates the
tests involved only standard
nuclear fission-not the fusion
type explosion involved in the
hydrogen bomb.
The White House did not go in-
to such detail. Presidential Secre-
tary Joseph Short concluded his
brief statement: "Further details
cannot be given without adversely
affecting our national security in-
terests."
PRESIDENT TRUMAN said,
through Short:
"In spite of Soviet pretensions
that their atomic energy program
is being directed exclusively
toward peaceful purposes, this
event confirms again that the So-
viet Union is continuing to make
atomic weapons:"
The announcement came in
the midst df fresh discussions of
new American atomic weapons-
the "fantastic" weapons which
President Truman first men-
tioned.
Senator Hickenlooper (R-Ia.),
former chairman and member of
the Congressional Atomic Com-
mittee, said earlier in a Baltimore
speech that powerful new atomic
weapons were available for use in
Korea. He indicated he favored
their use but said this was a mili-
tary decision.
But the President's ximounce-
ment caused another atomic com-
mitteeman, Rep. Van Zandt (R-
Penn.), to conclude that the So-
viet explosion had been known for
several weeks. "It explains why we
have not used ator.ic weapons in
Korea."
SL Discusses
cRevitalized'
NSA Program
By CRAWFORD YOUNG
Student Legislature last night
heard its seven delegates to a "re-
vitalized" National Student As-
sociation report back the results
of the annual convention, held last
summer at Minneapolis.
The Legislature is faced with
the problem of whether or not to
renew its membership in NSA,
which claims to represent 670,000
students. Dues and costs atten-
dent to belonging amount to al-
most $500 a year, or about a sixth
of the total SL budget.
* * -*
THE DELEGATES, Lee Benja-
min, '52, Phil Berry, '52, Leah
Marks, '52, Wally Pearson, '53, Joe
Savin, '53, Irv Stenn, '52, and
president Len Wilcox, '52, report-
ed that ten days of intensive work
were spent reorganizing and add-
ing new life to the organization.
Stenn pointed out that 90 %l
of the colleges represented were,
like Michigan, seriously thinking
of disaffiliating if NSA didn't
promise to produce more than
it had in the past. But it seemed'
to be the opinion of the dele-
gates that it was worthwhile to
retain membership.
NSA adopted by a vote of 174-
109 an anti-discrimination motion
somewhat similar to the ill-fated
SL motion on campus. However,
it emphasized that an education
program should precede any time
limit, according to Pearson. .
Miss Marks declared that NSA
was planning to exert more pres-

Alger Blasts
Democrats
Calls Administrations
Dishonest, Insincere
Blasting the administrations at
both Lansing and Washington as
"dishonest and insincere" Michi-
gan Secretary of State, Fred Alger
spoke to the Republican Club
meeting in Ann Arbor last night.
The Republican aspirant for the
state gubernatorial nomination
placed most of his emphasis on the
"internal issue of morals." Alger
referred to the scandals of "the
White House gang" and of Lansing
which he accused of being a "CIO
puppet."
The hopeful nominee also
took a slap at Williams, accus-
ing the Governor of deceiving
New Jersey strikers as to his
connections with The Mennen
Company.
Predicting a "great an gloriu
victory" in 1952, Alger urged that
issues of "honesty, morality and
integrity" be taken to the people.
Wheilpersonally interviewed,
Alger stated that he has very ex-
cellent relations with the legisla-
ture in Lansing, and that he be-
lieves he has the rank and file
support of Labor.
Regarding the present struggle
within the Young Republican club
here as to the merits of Senator
Joseph McCarthy, Alger remarked
that McCarthy is a "very sincere
guy who has well documented
proofof most things he speaks
about."
"I have never been more im-
pressed by an individual as to in-
tegrity and ability as I was with
General Eisenhower," claimed Al-
ger referring to an interview he
had with the General. "Popularly
I think Eisenhower is the strong-
est candidate in Michigan," Alger
concluded.
Taft Opposes
M edical .Aid
WASHINGTON - (A) - Sena-
tor Taft (R-Ohio) told the Sen-
ate yesterday that he opposes a.
$300,000,000 bill to aid medical
schools and students because of a
prospective $20,000,000,000 federal
deficit.
Taft was one of the sponsors
of the measure when it was re-
ported unanimously to the Sen-
ate in February by the floor com-,
mittee on which he is the ranking
Republican.
But he said he has changed his
mind because of the great in-
crease in defense spending.
The bill would authorize in-
struction g r a n ts to medical
schools for their present students
and incentive payments for addi-
tional students beyond the 1949-
51 enrollment level.

American audiences, and par-

For her program Miss de los

which she hopes will please
everyone. She will begin with
classical music, go on to German
Leider, and conclude with Spa-
