Earthquake
Hits Japan
.Inmmense Tidal Waves
Cause Heavy Damage
TOKYO-(AP)-Snow and bitter
cold heaped misery on homeless
thousands in Northern Japan last
night and early today in the wake
of one of the heaviest earthquakes
of the twentieth century.
Despite a terrifying pattern of
huge tidal waves, collpsing homes,
derailed trains, great earth cracks,
and swamped fishing villages, it
appeared the death toll would be
amazingly light.
THE LATEST official U.S. Ar-
my estimatt of dead stood at 31
Japanese. Twenty dead and 170
injured were reported by Japanese
police. There were no American
casualties.
The almost complete collapse
of communications in the hard-
est hit areas some 550 miles
north of Tokyo delayed an ac-
curate count of dead, injured
and missing.
However, the area is relatively
lightly populated, citizens are wise
to the ways of earthquakes. And
a warning service spread the tidal
t. wave alarm. Most Japanese along
the coast took to theirheels at the
first violent shock yesterday morn-
ing; believing that tidal waves
soon would come sweeping in.
They were right.
U' Calendar
Change Aired
At LitMeeting
By DIANE DECKER
The University Calendar got a
thorough going-over by students
and faculty last night at the
fourth literary college conference,
as the group launched into a heat-
ed discussion of the Huntley-
Crary plan.
The Huntley-Crary calendar,
which is co-sponsored by Prof.
Frank Huntley and Prof. Douglas
Crary, proposes to eliminate the
"lame duck" teaching session be-
tween Christmas vacation and
final exams.
IT CALLS for starting the se-
mester several weeks earlier in the
fall, which would bring final ex-
aminations before Christmas.
A five-week vacation would be
given at Christmas-time and the
second semester would also be-
gin slightly earlier, permitting
the dismissal of classes at an ad-
vanced date in the spring.
Various objections were raised
against the plan. Several students
complained that the five-week
period after Christmas was a dif-
ficult time to find jobs and pre-
ferred the additional time at the
end of the summer.
Another student posed the
question of summer school. Ac-
cording to Frank E. Robbins, as-
sistant to the president and
chairman of the calendar com-
mittee, the dates for summer
school could not be juggled be-
cause of the conflict which
would be presented to the large
number of teachers from other
schools who attend the Univer-
sity summer session.

Battle Rages

UN Jets Down
Five Red MIGs
SEOUL, Wednesday, March 5-
()-Allied Sabre jet pilots pounc-
ed on a flight of 70 MIGs crossing
the Yalu River late last night and
the Fifth Air Force said they shot
downfive in a wild 30 minute bat-
tle.
Not since Jan. 25 have Allied
pilots claimed such a bag of the
fleet Russian-type jets. They de-
stroyed 10 Communists Jets that
day.
THE FIFTH Air Force said its
Sabres probably destroyed another
MIG but it held up a definite
claim pending a gun camera
check.
Allied losses, if any, were
withheld.
"We caught them by surprise
and bounced the whole forma-
tion," an air officer said.
MEANWHILE, on the talking
front, Communist truce negotia-
tors insisted yesterday that 50,000
unaccounted for South Korean
prisoners "do not exist" but Red
propaganda .loudspeakers on the
front lines flatly contradicted
them.
The Red loudspeakers boasted
that captured South Korean
troops now were fighting against
the United Nations and blared
this invitation to other Republi-
can troops: "Come to us."
The UN command again de-
manded the Communists supply
data on the missing 50,000 South-
ern Korean troops end include
them in any prisoner exchange.
Negotiators scheduled more
talks at Panmujom yesterday on
the major stumbling blocks to
an armistice, but no progress
was made. The Reds refused to
give up their insistence on Rus
sia as a neutral truce inspector,
The Allies were equally firm in
insisting on voluntary repatria-
tion 'of war prisoners and said
they would not send back to the
Reds any prisoners who did not
wish to go.

Fraternity
Pledge, Lists
ShowDrop
Nine Houses Fail
To Get Pledges
By JERRY HELMAN
Results of the spring fraternity
rushing, which ended last Satur-
day, show a drop in the number
of men rushing and pledging, with
nine fraternities failing to pledge
a single man.
Beta Theta Pi, Zeta Psi, Trigon,
Sigma Pi. and Kappa Nu were the
social fraternities failing to turn
in pledge lists. Of the remaining
four, two, Kappa Alpha Psi and
Omega Psi Phi, did not hold rush-
ing this semester. Those remain-
ing, Phi Iota Alpha and Delta Ep-
silon Pi, are not social fraternities.
NO SPECIFIC reasons were giv-
en by the presidents of the five
fraternities to explain the dearth
of pledges. The general attitude
was one of "It's one of those
things," as one man expressed it.
A back check over past pledge
lists showed that in the past
year and a half, three of the or-
ganizations in question have
had consistently low classes-
Trigon totaled nine, Kappa Nu,
16; and Sigma Pi, four-indi-
eating that each of them may
be in some danger.
However, other factors must be
considered in determining-.a fra-
ternity's "strength," according to
Pete Thorpe, IFC Rushing Com-
mittee Chairman, 'among them
alumni support and the number
of men the house budgets for.
The results of rushing as a
whole showed a drop in the
number of rushees fro, 393 last
spring to 317, and a decrease
in the number pledged, from 375
to 274, with the percentage
pledged dropping from a sur-
prising 95 per cent last year to
a more normal 87 per cent (for
the spring semester).
The total decline is just slightly
lower than the drop in University
male, enrollment this year as com-
pared to last. Also the figure of
274 pledged is close to the num-
ber the EFC, using a poll of in-
dividual fraternities, estimated as
necessary for all houses to open
next year.
SL To Discuss
Coed Referendum
A referendum asking student
opinion on a new coeducational
Union wil be debated at tonight's
meeting of the Student Legislature
at 7:30 p.m. at the Alpha Tau
Omega House, 1415 Cambridge.
SL will also take up the Lecture
Committee issue for debate.
It is hoped that the long delayed
vote on women's representation
on the athletic board will also be
realized.

PERMANENT KILLING?

Truman-Proposed

Vote

'52 Passage
Hield Unlikely

GOP Maneuvers
Foil Democrats
WASHINGTON -- (P) - The
House voted 236 to 162 last night
to send the Administration-backed
Universal Military Training bill
back to committee - just abbut
wiping out any chance that the
hotly controversial measure can
Tbe passed this year.
The bill would have made able-
bodied youths liable to six months
of military training as soon as
they reached the age of 18. In ad-
dition, it would have kept them in
the reserves, and subject to recall,
for seven and one-half years af-
ter their training was finished.
* * *
PRESIDENT Truman and most
military leaders, including Gen.
Dwight D. Eisenhower, endorsed
the bill. A number of church,
farm, educational and other or-
ganizations waged a strong cam-
paign against it.
Yesterday's final vot came
after six hours of often stormy
debate and complex parliamen-
tary maneuvering.
While the House Armed Ser
vices Committee still can bring the
measure to the floor for another
vote at this session, Administra-
tion leaders conceded in advaNca
that a vote to recommit would
probably , ll the bill forthe re-
mainder of this year and perhaps
for several years to come.
THE VOTE likewise was expect-
ed to sidetrack Senate considera,
tion of similar UMT legislation.
Voting-to, send the House bil
back to committee were 155 Re-
publicans and 8 Democrats.
Against the motion were 131
Democrats, 30 Republicans and'
one independent.
In a final effort to get the mea-
sure through, Administration
forces agreed to put a six-year
limit on UMT-supposing it had
been finally approved by Congress
-and also to forbid any start of
the program so long as young men
were being drafted through Selec-
tive Service.
In thesubsequentdrive toward
final action, opponents threw a
preliminary scare into UMT back-
ers by pushing through, 160 to 145,
a substitute measure calling only'
for compulsory military training
in high schools.
End Case Club
Semi-Finals
Two teams of lawyers, the
Champlin Club and the Woodward
Club emerged last night as the
winners of the semi-finals of the
Henry M. Campbell Case Clubs
Competition.
Members of the Champlin Club
were Al Blumrosen, '53L, and Al-
bert Feldman, '53L, while the
Woodward team was made up of
Alan Kidson, '53L, and Hyman
Berman, '53L. These two teams
will come together in the finals,
which are generally held in early
May.
Last night's cases, Involving
Wage Stabilization Act regulations
and their, relations to the consti-
tution, common law, and the Taft

court composed of two practicing-

lawyers in the field of labor law
and one member of the Law
School faculty.

Lower Prices
WASHINGTON-(AP)-Mobiliza-
tion chief Charles E. Wilson re-
ported yesterday. an encouraging
down-trend in a number of prices,
and said he sees no need for fur-
ther cutbacks in the supply of
civilian goods.
Nevertheless, Wilson said, the
Administration's wage-price and
other economic controls should be
continued for another two years
and in some respects strengthened.
The Mobilization Director told
the Senate Banking Committee
that the nation's defense build-
up is designed to run through
1954 and "we ought to have tie
protection of the Defense Pro-
duction Act through that pe-
riod."
Wilson was the first of about 75
witnesses the committee plans to
call in its hearings on extension of
the basic economic controls law;
which expires June 30.

In an attempt to facilitate
collection of completed pledge
cards, the main desk of every
dormitory has been designated
as a collection point.
In the departmental competi-
tion, the dentistry schol is still
ahead withd127 pledge cards. The
Law Schol is second with 89.
Stockwell dormitory leads the
way in the women's dorm race
with 27 pledges. An inter-corri-
dor competition has been set up
within the dorm with the results
being displayed on a huge poster
in the main lobby.
Martha Cook dormitory is sec-
ond in the women's division with
27. Tri-Delt still leads the sorority
-race with 23; Kappa Alpha Theta
reports 13 and Alpha Delta Pi, 10.
A cup to be awarded to the
highest women's organization and
a trophy for the men's group will
be displayed at the Pint Size Re-
vue tomorrow where several addi-
tional prizes will also be an-
nounced.

TO CONSIDER THREE BASIC CHANGES:
Union Plans To Amend 48 Year Old Constitution

By MIKE SCHERER
An attempt to amend the 48 year old Union constitution will be
made Saturday, March 15, at a special constitutional meeting of
Union members.
Often attempted but seldom accomplished, the latest "reform"
action will coincide with the Union's annual open house to gather
the necessary quorum of 400 members.
THREE BASIC CHANGES will be considered, according to Union
President John Kathe, '52P.
One amendment would alter the method of representation in

presidents elected to seven and alter the system of representation and
election.
If the amendment passes, one vice-president will be elected
from the combined schools of medicine and dentistry and one from
the Law School by straight vote, while five will be elected at large
by the Hare system of proportional representation from the re-
maining schools and colleges.
Chief reason for electing five members-at-large rather than by
college representation is that more candidates of the necessary quali-
fications and expecience could be elected, according to Kathe.
Past experience has shown that often there are several, highly
nalified candidates running from one eollege groun. while there

Since that time, Union Board members believe that Men's Judi-
ciary has been replaced by Student Legislature as the most represen-
tative of student government on campus.
Another reason for the change is the hope that SL-Union relations
would be strengthened by SL representation on the Union Board,
Kathe said.
THE THIRD proposed amendment would simplify the method of
making further amendments to the Union Constitution. Under the
present laws, the constitution can be amended only bk three-fourths
vote of a quorum of 400 Union members assembled together.
The new amendment would allow the Constitution to be
