Probe ofClergy
Velde Rebuked by House Group
In Unanimous Closed Door Vote
The House Un-American Activities Committee acted unanimously
yesterday to bar Chairman Harold Velde (R-Ill.) from investigating the
Anation's clergy for traces of Red infiltration 'or from launching any
other new inquiry without the committee approval.
Committee members said that a resolution by Rep. Walter (D-Pa.)
was adopted to put a check-rein on Velde's powers, according to the
United Press.
* * * *
REP. KEARNEY of New York, ranking Republican behind the
'chairman, seconded the resolution.

Walter drafted his resolutionv
after Velde said Monday night in
a broadcast that the committee
Wright investigate Red infiltra-
tion of churches. Velde said he
had no objection and told re-
porters he always has favored
full committee approval of any
The Republican chairman con-
tended however that the action
had only been discussed and that
no vote had been taken.
ACCORDING to Walter, Kear-
ney and other members of the.
J committee the measure was adopt-
ed unanimously.
The resolution was proposed
in a closed session after a public
meeting that had been called to
,heck into what Velde termed
an espionage ring involving
school teachers whose "whole ob-
jective was to obtain Govern-
ment secrets."
The first witness scheduled to
appear, Prof. Abraham Glasser of
Rutgers University, did not testi-
fy when the committee granted
his request that his testimony be
postponed until next Wednesday
because of the illness of his at-
torney's wife.

ment, Glasser distributed to the
press copies of a statement in
which he accused the committee
of trying to destroy his reputation.
He challenged its right to rake
over 16-year-old disloyalty charges

'Partial' War
Must Go On,
Minister Sees No
Way Out in Korea
NEW YORK-(W)-British For-
eign Secretary Anthony Eden told
the United States last night it
must continue to fight only a par-
tial war in Korea.
In a major foreign policy ad-
dress, he conceded this is a thank-
less assignment and said: '
"It is one thing for a nation
to throw its entire strength into
a fight for survival. It is an-
other to conduct a partial war
with ull kinds of restraints upon
your action.
"And yet we know that these
restraints must be maintained."
. * * *
EDEN OFFERED his prepared
address before the Foreign Pol-
icy Association, a non-profit na-
tional educational organization de-
voted to public understanding of
internatignal affairs.
The urbane . British Cabinet .
member came here after top-
level policy talks in Washing-
ton with President Eisenhower
and Secretary of State Dulles.
Eden's was a frankly defensive
speech for the most part as he
assayed to answer many of the
criticisms raised against British
foreign policy.

HE MADE a last minute inser-
tion in his speech to touch on the
shooting down today of a RAF
bomber by Soviet aircraft.
Eden said the U. S. and Brit-
ain still are ready to negotiate
with Russia, despite Stalin's
death. He added that a like in-
tention from Russia would be
Then he deviated from his orig-
inal text to say:
"There is nothing of the kind

provoked attacks of this kind

ing the heaviest burden of the

Drafts Protest
.By The Associated Press
LUENEBURG, Germany -'Two
Soviet MIG jets shot down a four-
engine British bomber in flames
yesterday after a swift foray above
the Elbe River Valley at the East-
West frontier of Germany.
The Russians claimed the Brit-
ish plane opened fire first. The
Russian reply, broadcast by Mos-
cow radio soon after the British
government had ordered a strong
protest of its own filed, also claim-
ed the bomber was violating the
Soviet zone of Germany when it
was brought down,
* * *.
THE INCIDENT killed five of
the bomber's seven crewmen and
heightened tension built up since
the destruction Tuesday of a U. S.
Thunderiet by two Czechoslovak
fighter pilots over Germany.
The Russian reply said one
of the bomber's crewmen was
in Soviet hands. It said he was
wounded and had been taken
to the hospital.
The British Air Ministry pre-
viously had said that six of the
seven crewmen were killed.
BRITAIN'S protest to the Rus-
sians was not made public im-
The twin incidents, coming right
after a new Soviet government
took office, raised the spectre of
crisis in a Europe still pondering
implications of the rise of Georgi
Malenkov as Stalin's successor in
the Kremlin.
The British charged Thurs-
day's attack was deliberate. They
drafted a stiff protest to Rus-
sia demanding reparations and
punishment of "those respon-
sible for this outrage."
The reply broadcast by Russia
was sent in a letter to Sir IV-one
Kirkpatrick, British high commis-
sioner in Germany, from Soviet
Gen. Vasili Chuikov. It declared
the British bomber had "penetrat-
ed 120 kilometers" 72 miles into
Germany's Soviet zone.
THE RUSSIAN charge of ter-
ritorial violation has been stand-
ard Communist practice in such
cases. Czechoslovakia used it in
replying to a U. S. protest over
Tuesday's incident.
Chiukov's letter described yes-
terd'ay's incident as "regrettable"
but protested at the same time
against the alleged violation of
Soviet zone air space.
Britain's Air Ministry said the
fatal strike came in the Hamburg-
Berlin air corridor less than two
hours after two Soviet fighters had
made a "threatening mock attack"
on another British bomber 100
miles deep in the Russian zone. It
is one of three such aerial lanes,
20 miles wide used by Allied air-
craft for eight years under four-
power agreement.
The main wreckage of the Brit-
ish bomber blasted apart fell burn-
ing into Soviet territory on the
east bank of the Elbe. Other debris
dropped in British territory on
tle west bank and the 'wounded
pilot parachuted safely to Western


Dick Kempthorn Stars
1On Korean Battlefield


* * *

On the football field or the air-
field, former All-American foot-
ball star Dick Kempthorn, '50, fits
the role of a hero.
Now in Korea, the brilliant line-
backer who played on the 1947
Rose Bowl team, one of the na-
tion's finest defensive stars in
s" 1948, h7as been cited for heroism
in saving the life of a fellow pilot.
* * *
AIR FORCE officials credit
Kempthorn with saving Lt. Henry
Rocks of Brooklyn from burning
to death after a crash. The crash'
took place at the Itazuke Air Base
.' in Southern Japan, when Rock's
plane collided with another plane.
Kempthorn sprinted 200 yards
to the crash scene, jumped on
the wing and ripped loose the
4* canopy of bullet-proof glass.
Rocks was.still trapped by the
gunsights, so Kempthorn took
them in his hands and broke off
the mounting, a piece of metal
one-eighth of an inch thick. This
freed the trapped pilot.
"Ordinarily it would take a
sledge-hammer blow to dislodge
that gun sight," Rocks said.
"I don't know yet how Dick
did it with his bare hands. I was
trapped and didn't see any pos-
sible way of getting out."
Kempthorn piloted his c wn pri-
vate plane as a student on cam-
pus. After graduation he served
on the Wolverine coaching staff

Quad Council
Will Discuss
Rise in Rates
The approval of a residence
hall rate hike by the Board of
Governors will be discussed at a
special meeting of the West Quad
Council 5:15 p.m. today.
Sam Alfieri, '54A&D, West Quad
president, said that the meeting
will be "to find out from the quad
representatives what effects they
feel any substantial raise might
have on residence hall living."
Alfieri also said that the
'meeting is not a protest but is
planned to present to Universi-
ty vice-president Wilbur K. Pier-
pont, "how we feel the raise will
affect the application of the
Michigan House plan."
East Quad president, Roger Kid-

of Students Erich A. Walter and

"discuss the general problem of
