Union 'Opera Run Changed
From Spring to Christmas

The dreams of Pat Heck, '53,
Union Opera general chairman
and his cohorts came true yester-
day as the Union Board of Direc-
tors approved plans for changing
the time of the Opera from spring
vacation to Christmas time.
This means the show will play
in Ann Arbor on Dec. 10 through
12 and then go on the road from
Dec. 26 to Jan. 3, 1953.
Publicity chairman Harry Blum,
'54, announced that the Opera is
TO Discuss
Lecture Bant
Responding to a petition signed
by 75 members of the Literary
College faculty, Dean Burton D.
Thuma has called a meeting of
the college staff for Monday, June
2 to discuss the speakers ban.
Dean Thuma declined to com-
ment on any action that might
be taken as a result of the meet.
The highly controversial Re-1
gents by-law establishing control
over speakers invited to the cam-
pus by student and faculty groups'
has been invoked by the University
lecture committee four times dur-
ing the past semester.
Beginning with Abner Greene,
of the American Committee for
the Protection of the Foreign Born,
and Arthur McPhaul, executive
secretary of the Civil Rights Con-
gress, the lecture committee suc-
cessively barred William Hood, of
Ford Local 600 and most recently

on the issue, voting to request the
Board of Regents to liberalize the
bylaw concerning speakers.

a more extensive road tour. Be-
sides hitting Flint, Detroit, Toledo
and Buffalo, Blum said they are
also planning to play at other
mid-western cities, including pos-

OPERA'S GENERAL secretary,
Mike Scherer, '54, stated that by
scheduling the tour for Christmas
vacation the Opera's executive
board feels they will eliminate
many of the conflicts which pre-
vailed in the past. Among the dif-
ficulties were the migration of
many prospective Opera-goers to
Florida during spring vacation
and the occurrence of religious
holidays, Scherer concluded.
Heck said "We already have
10 scenarios submitted for next
year, but we're looking for
more," he stated. "Keeping the
action moving, the chorus kick,
ing and the audience laughing,"
he advised scenario writers.
Scripts should be turned in at
the Union desk before June 16.
The lucky winner will see the
script put into action in various
Midwestern cities under the direc-
tion of Fred Evans, imported New
York director.
He will also have his name ap-
pear in many of the leading news-
papers in these cities and travel
with the Opera.
"And don't forget," concluded
Heck, "that we need tryouts for
our cast. Aspirants for the line or
leads can sign up with the Opera
starting the second week of next
Those who are chosen will have
expenses paid by the Opera while
on tour. This includes room and
board and refreshments enroute
and at the cities where the show
is put on and attending parties
thrown by each city's alumni club
after each performance.

Reds Continue
War of Nerves
BERLIN -(A')- Fifteen thou-
sand Comunists, surging in from
the Russian zone for an anti-
western demonstration, touched
off a savage clash with West Ber-
lin police yesterday in a growing
war of nerves.
Club-swinging police wounded
hundreds of the invaders, arrested
300 and broke up the demonstra-
tion after an hour of milling in
the downtown borough of Kreuz-
berg, in the American sector.
Tear gas squads were ready,
but were never needed. There was
no gunfire.
The Communist pattern of
trouble-making was as clear, how-
ever, as it was in the anti-western
rioting in Paris less than 24 hours

THE FRENCH Red boss, Jacques
Duclos, was charged in Paris yes-
terday with plotting against the
internal security of France by in-
citing riots as a front for Red
revolution. His labor supporters
called a strike. The ostensible tar-

was Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway,

After a series of short but sharp
brawls with highly trained West
Berlin police platoons, the row-
dies were shoved into side streets
and dispersed. Most of the other
demonstrators, teen-age youths,
kept out of the fight.
Reports that 25,000 strongarm
men had been ordered into other
areas in the United States, British
and French sectors kept police on
the alert, but proved unfounded.
The rioting was timed with a
visit of British foreign secretary
Anthony Eden, who told West
Berlin's Parliament and people
to stand firm.

Killed in
KOJE ISLAND, Korea, Friday,
May 30--AP)-Five prisoners were
killed and 17 were injured in new
outbreaks yesterday and today in
the stormy Koje Island allied
stockade and in a Korean main-
land compound at Yongchon.
Two North Korean prisoners of
war were killed and two others
were wounded today when a work
party attacked two American and
two South Korean guards.
Another prisoner was killed and
a second wounded at Koje in the
accidental discharge of a guard's

THIS FOLLOWED after about
100 Allied troops with bayonet
and tear gas had raided an unruly
compound containing 3,350 tou.gh
Red prisoners, destroying their
headquarters, and emerged with
Red flags and knives without spill-
ing a drop of blood.
It was the first big show of
force inside ay of the 1 com-
pounds since disorders flared
early in May on this South Kor-
ean island wher 80,000 pris-
oners of war are held.
Two hours later, a U.S. soldier
guard taking his position in a
tower accidentally discharged his
automatic rifle into the seething
compound, killing one prisoner
and wounding another.
The trouble had begun when
guards spotted Red prisoners try-
ing to chop a hole through an
inner barbed wire fence that bars
the way to an area-way leading
to the outer gate.
AUTHORITIES emphasized that
the show of force in compound 66
was not part of the planned move-
ment of prisoners to smaller com-
This movement is expected to
come in about a week, and a
showdown is likely then.
Meanwhile, at the front, two
North Korean companies today
renewed a month-long assault for
a dominant East Korean peak
dubbed by the GI's who hold it,
"Luke the Gook's Castle." Allied
forces beat the Communists off
after four houres of intense fight-
Ground action elsewhere along
the front was minor.
HST Requests
Atomic Funds
Truman' asked Congress yesterday
to vote more than three and a
third billion dollars to step-up the
nation's atomic weapons program.
He said the money would pro-
vide for a "major further expan-
sion" over a five-year period.
"The national security and the
security of the free world," Tru-
man said in letters to Congression-
al leaders, "demand that we main-
tain and increase our leadership
in this field.
The President gave no details
of the projected $3,341,000,000 ex-
pansion, saying only that it would
"provide greater capacity for the
production of fissionable mater-
ials and for the fabrication of such
materials into atomic weapons."
