JACKSON - W)-- Four more
prison guards resigned yesterday
and Dr. Vernon Fox said he would
fight for his job at the State Pris-
on of Southern Michigan.
The new resignations and Dr.
Fox's rebuff to criticism marked
the fifth day of the restoration
period at the big prison following
last week's disastrous riot.
SIX GUARDS now have resign-
ed as a result of the riot. One con-
vict was killed and about a score
of inmates and guards injured.
The prison employs 475 guards.
Dr. Fox, prison psychologist
and assistant deputy warden,
was relieved of 'duties for his
congratulatory speech to prison
mutineers as the latter prepared
The assistant warden was a
friend of many of the convicts. He
was a leading peacemaker in the
four days of rioting.

WASHINGTON--(A)-A federal judge held the seizure of the
strike-threatened steel industry illegal yesterday in a ruling that
instantly set off a nation-wide strike of CIO steelworkers.
In an opinion studded with biting passag'es, District Judge David
A. Pine said President Truman acted "without authority in law" or
the Constitution when he took over the industry to avert a walkout.
Ruling that the mills must go back to their owners, the Judge de-
clared the Taft-Hartley law is the legal tool at hand for heading
off a strike.

TOKYO-Japan's new indepen-

by three top ministers in Hideki

There was no indication that
the decision would be forthcoming
today however. The Sub-Commit-
tee's function is to approve recom-
mendations from the nine-student
Joint Judiciary Council. and the
latest word is that Judiciary still
has several points to decide.
Even if the Judiciary gets its
.recommendations drawn up in
final form by this afternoon, it is
doubtful that the three Sub-Com-
mittee members c o u ld wade
through the hundreds of pages
of testimony in one day.
And there was an outside
chance that the Sub-Committee
wouldn't be able to meet today
anyway, since one of the three
members, Professor Axel Marin of

AN INVITATION to- President
Hatcher or his representative to
present the administration's stand
on the McPhaul issue at the meet-
ing was unanswered, according to
officers. No administration repre-
sentatives were present last night.
The first to testify, former YP
President Gordon MacDougall,
charged the University with us-
ing "guilt by association" tactics
in the Joint Judiciary proceed-
ings. He objected to the unoffi-
cial representation of adminis-
tration officials in the Judiciary
MacDougall also said he was

DAVID LUCE, Grad., recently

He received his doctor's degree

(CIO) in Denver, earlier had said
California members had been re-

as not to hamper the Korean war
effort. Union officials in San

The rest were not involved.
Knight also said the supply- of
