Britain Promises
Boycott of China
Ship cents of Strategic Materials
By British Ships To Be Forbidden
WASHINGTON-(W-Britain has promised to help impose an
economic blockade on shipment of strategic materials to Red China,
it was announced here yesterday at the close of British-American for-
eign policy and economic talks.
At the same time, the two nations indicated the United States
has encouraged Britain to plunge into freer currency and trade

Participating were British Foreign
of State Dulles, British Chancello
of the Exchequer R. A. Butler an
Secretary of the Treasury Hum
The two diplomatically-worde
announcements boiled down t
1. The British will try to elim-
inate the sore spot in their re-
lations with the United States
- that is, shipments to Red
China of materials useful for a
war effort. At the same time
they will stand firm on their
Middle Eastern policy, especial-
ly as regards Iran.
2. The two nations will cooper
ate, and Britain will take direc
action in the sterling area, in
farflung attempt to loosen mone
tary and trade shackles with th
aim of strengthening free worl
economies to support a long strug
gle against Communism.

AS FOR trade with Red China
Eden told the United States hi
government, in addition to con
trols now in force, had decided:
1. To set up a new licensing
system which would make it im-
possible to carry non-British
strategic materials to Red China
in ships registered in the United
Kingdom and colonies.
Britain, and other U.S. Euro
pean allies already forbid ship
ment of their. own strategic ma-
terials to the Chinese Communist
(the United States forbids an
trade with the China mainland)
But in the past it has been pos-
sible to charter British ships t
carry Iron Curtain war goods t
the Chinese. This is now to b
2. Tightening up would be con-
verted to a virtual strategic ma-
terials blockade by refusing per
mission for "Soviet bloc or other'
ships carrying strategic goods to
the Chinese Reds to be re-fueled
at Britain's lifeline ports around
the world.
3. The U.S. and Britain, it wa
added, will concert efforts to get
other nations to shut off strategic
trade with Red China.
Eden and Dulles confirmed a
prior agreement that if an emer-
gency arises U.S. military air-
craft would use British bases only
after joint decision by the British
and American governments.

;Aid Refused
By Meader
Rep. George Meader of Ann Ar-
bor reported yesterday to have
turned down petitions by Dean
A. C. Furstenburg of the medical
school and Dr. James L. Wilson,I
- chairman of the pediatrics de-
t partment, asking for a stay of the
a deportation order against Dr. Vera

e rics department.
d Rep. Meader was alleged to de-
Sclare that it was not his practice
to introduce private bills in Con-
gress such as would be required
, to stay the deportation order.

- HOWEVER, Dr. Liu quoted the
Ann Arbor congressman as saying
yesterday he has found no reason
for the government's ordering her
out of the country.
Dr. Liu was notified by the U.
S. Immigration Department,
Thursday, to be ready for "vol-
- untary deportation" within 30
- days. The young doctor, who is
"totally in the dark" as to the
s cause of the federal decision, is
y now awaiting an answer from
. the Detroit immigration office
to Rep. Meader's report.
0On January 23, 1952, Dr. Liu was
o denied permanent residence in the
e United States after her student
visa had expired. At that time no
explanation was offered by the
Detroit board.
The board also turned down an
appeal of its original decision last
October, after a five month con-
I sideration. Although the immigra-
tion department found the young
pediatrician's affidavits and re-
quirements "favorable," Dr. Liu
alledges that it turned down the
request for citizenship because the
case was not "meritricious."
Dr. Liu said that following
the second World War, Chinese
students who had lived in the
United States for more than two
years had been allowed to apply
for citizenship. They usually
were allowed to stay, she main-

Stalin Plans
To Be Kept,
Pa perSays
There will be no changes in
Joseph Stalin's foreign policy of
"international co-operation and
development of business relations
with all countries," Pravda, the
Communist party newspaper said
yesterday, according to the Unit-
ed Press.
Pravda said that paramount
task now is:
"To secure an unbroken and
correct leadership of the entire
life of our country which, in turn,
demands the greatest concentra-
tion of leadership, not permitting
any dissention and panic and thus
unconditionally insuring the suc-
cessful translation into life of the
policy worked out by our party
and government both in internal
and external affairs."
Pravda said to help realize this
aim the Russian army and navy
will be strengthened.

new Soviet government stood with

Army in Korea pledged support to
the Soviet Union in a "fight to
final victory."
Gen. Peng Teh-Huai, comman-
der of the 750,000 or more Chinese
Red troops in Korea, messaged
Moscow his men "in memory of
great Stalin-will turn their sor-
row into strength."
In an obviously directed state-
ment, Peng declared the Chinese
and Korean Red armies would
"deal the enemy still heavier blows
if he dare engage in any advan-
tures," and threatened "ignomin-
ous defeat" to any Allied offensive.
Peng said the Chinese people
and the army he commands "will
stand alongside the people of the
great Soviet Union . . . and fight
to final victory in defense of a
lasting peace in the east and the
f est of the world."

Ohioan's Plan
By Kefauver
Democrat Favors
scale investigation of the whole
Korean situation was proposed
yesterday by Sen. Taft (R-Ohio),
who suggested a special commit-
tee might be created for the task.
Taft's proposal brought mmed-
late opposition from Sen. Kefauv-
er (D-Tenn.), another top runner
in last year's race for presidential
KEFAUVER said an investiga-
tion such as Taft proposed would
"plunge the conduct of the war
into politics" and might feed in-
formation to the enemy.
Taft, the Republican floor
leader, said "the whole subject
should be looked into."
He suggested that an investiga-
tion now under way into reports
that Allied troops in Korea have
been short of ammunition might
be broadened to cover the stalled
armistice talks, the handling of
prisoners of war, and related sub-
"We should know about all of
these thingsfor their impact on

Korea," he said.

strategy which President Eisen-
hower may be evolving on the
basis of his visit to the battle zone
last Dec. 2-5.
In a separate interview, how-
ever, Kefauver said:
"I think that before we decide
to make qny such investigation,
we ought to go into the question
of how it might affect national
unity and what information it
might give the enemy."
The Tennessee Senator, a mem-
ber of the armed services commit-
tee, said that instead of a broad-
scale investigation, he favors lim-
iting congressional inquiries to
specific matters, such as the re-
ported ammunition shortage.

broad inquiry was regarded in
some quarters as reflecting de-
mands from other Republican
lawmakers that something be done
to end the Korean conflict.
Eisenhower promised to make
an early and honorable end to the

ness in his administration and

Democrats assembled at a Jeffer-
son-Jackson Day dinner last night
heard Eleanor Roosevelt encourage
them to work "not only for the
party, but for the country and hu-

Just because the Democrats are

they should lose their sense of
responsibility like "the Republi-

IN LINE with this'sense of na-
