Ikse Claims
Korea Arms
Situation OK
Says Shortages
Were Corrected
Eisenhower said yesterday the pre-
sent ammunition situation in Ko-
rea is perfectly sound.
This was the first definite word
from the White House that the
President believes ammunition
shortages have been corrected suf-
ficiently to handle present scale
combat operations.
THE PRESIDENT said he had
checked with the military and had
been advised emphatically that
the yielding of Old Baldy by Unit-
ed States troops in Korea had no
relation to an ammunition short-
Eisenhower said, too, there is
no conflict between himself and
Secretary of Defense Wilson over
maintaining United States com-
bat strength at present levels,
although desperate efforts are
being made to stop the gov-
ernment's in-the-red spending.
Defending his nomination of
Charles E. Bohlen to be ambassa-
dor to Moscow as the best quali-
fied man for the post, the Presi-
dent told a news conference firm-
ly that the appointment is before
the Senate to stay.
* *
ADDITIONAL highlights cover-
ed in the briskly paced news con-
ference included these:
1. The Chief Executive isn't go-
ing to talk about Sen. McCarthy
(R-Wis.)-controversial figure in
Senate investigations and a lead-
ing foe of Bohlen.
But Eisenhower said congres-
sional investigations can be car-
ried to the point of damaging
from within what you are trying
to protect from without. He left
it to them, Eisenhower told the
reporters, to speculate whether
that point has been reached .
2. Eisenhower himself passes fi-
nal judgment on all persons named
to high government jobs, after in-
terviewing them personally. He
said he prefers middle-of-the-road
people and not extremists.
Doctors Say
Polio Vaccine
Not Perfected
University doctors yesterday
cautioned against over-enthusi-
asm concerning the new polio vac-
cine which has just been tested on
90 children and adults.
"The vaccine has not been prov-
en to protect against polio," Dr.
Thomas Francis, head of the de-
partment of epidemiology, em-
phasized. The only thing proven
is that the vaccine will produce
antibodies in the blood serum
against polio:"
ANNOUNCEMENT of the test
results was made by Dr. Jonas
Salk, virus researcher of the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania, at a press-
science dinner given by the Na-
tional Foundation for Infantile
Warning that the vaccine will
not be available this summer,

Dr. Salk said although the vac-
cine gave all 90 persons protec-
tive antibodies against all three
types of virus which can cause
polio, the test group was too
small to say that the drug will
actually work for everyone.
"The experiments are no real
test but only one step forward in
progress," Dr. Francis said.
Dr. David Dickinson, research
associate in pediatrics and com-
municable diseases, warned that
the vaccine should not be ac-
cepted as a sure cure for polio
until further tests have been
Testing 160 persons, four to 40
years old with several forms of
the vaccine, Dr. Salk found the
best bet to be a creamy drug made
out of all three types of polio vi-
rus, killed or inactivated with for-
maldehyde and then mixed in min-
eral oil and an emulsifier.

Czech Move
Red Propaganda
Device Thwarted
The UN pasted an overwhelming
defeat yesterday on a major Soviet
propaganda campaign started in
the Stalin era and carried on here
by the new Malenkov regime.
It was designed to brand the
United States as an aggressor
against Iron Curtain countries.

mittee voted 41-5 against a Czech-
oslovak satellite resolution intro-
duced in the UN while Stalin
reigned but pushed with greater
vigor by the Communists after
Prime Minister Georgi Malenkov
took over.
The Reds won a small com-
fort in the final vote; 14 coun-
tries abtained, partly because
the West had defended Jews
and Zionism against Red as-

was interpreted by Western dele-

permanent delegate here, landed

Student's Campaigning
Violates Ann Arbor Law,
Violations of city election rules by a candidate for all-campus

Slosson Asks
For Freedom
Of Expression
Following a film entitled "Of
Human Rights" presented by the
Women's International League last
night, Prof. Preston W. Slosson of
the history department outlined
the nature and potentialities of
such rights.
"I don't want a government that
must hide in a glass cage lest
somebody damage it," remarked
Prof. Slosson.
HE ADVOCATED that subver-
sive elements in the United States
be granted full freedom of peace-
ful expression, including represen-
tation on state and national bal-
lots and the privileges of voting,
organizing, speaking and writing,
within legal limits.
Prof. Slosson further stressed
that the United Nations "must
overcome its present ineffectual-
ity by compelling the enforce-
ment of statements such as its
recent Declaration of Universal
Human Rights."
Citing a proposed constitutional
amendment of Senator Bricker (R-
0.) to limit the possible effects of
such documents on existing Ameri-
can rights, Prof. Slosson stated
that a movement to combat such
misconceptions should go into im-
mediate effect..
Russian minds and culture, Prof.
Slosson remarked, have become
sterile because bf the threats of
Soviet censors. Similarly no cen-
sors anywhere can be trusted with
automatic power to determine
what people shall know, he said.

Lidates by the Student Legislature.
"The provision states: "No cam-
paign literature may be affixed
on trees, lampposts, etc. in the
city of Ann Arbor."
SL rules also forbid posting
of campaign literature on any
University buildings other than
residence halls.
According to City Clerk Fred
Looker, the only way any candi-
date can legally campaign on city
property is by door-to-door con-
Ann Arbor ordinances forbid
posting of bills on trees, telephone
poles, mail boxes and car wind-
SL elections committee chair-
man Phil Berry, Grad., yesterday
urged all candidates who have
campaigned illegally to remove the
literature immediately.
Taps Juniors
Black-robed Mortarboards
wound their way across campus
last night, tapping 16 junior wo-
men for membership in the na-
tional senior women's honorary.
Recognized for scholarship, lead-
ership and service contributions,
the new members can be recog-
nized today by their mortarboard
hats which they traditionally wear
the day after tapping.
Honored by the old members
were Sue Alderman, Phyllis Bett-
mann, Mimi Blau, Martha Hill,
Kathy Hutchins, Audrey McIn-
tyre, Betty Magyar, Barbara Mat-
tison and Ann Plumton.
Sue Popkin, Jackie Schiff, Lu-
cille Stansberry, Marian Swan-
son, Virvinia Voss, Gretchen White
and Kathy Zeisler were also in-
vited to membership.
Dr. Margaret Bell was tapped
for honorary membership.

Chinese Atop
Old Bald Hit
By Artillery
Clark Sees No
By The Associated Press
Hundreds of Chinese Reds
struck at 10 Allied outposts along
Korea's far Western Front yester-
day and early this morning, in-
cluding Bunker Hill where they
were thrown back.
The upsurge of fighting north-
west of Seoul came as Allied
planes and artillery turned loose
a tornado of fire on the Chinese
victors atop Old Baldy, 25 miles
to the northeast. Pilots said they
did not see how any Chinese
could have lived through the
around-the-clock pounding.
AT LEAST 750 Chinese Reds
hit Bunker Hill, which like Old
Baldy guards an invasion route to
Seoul. They met such stern re-
sistance that the fighting there
apparently was over by midnight
yesterday, field reports said.
Unestimated numbers of Chi-
nese hit nine other outposts in
the Bunker Hill sector late yes-
terday or early this morning,
but most of these attacks ended
quickly with the Allied lines
holding firm.
Hand-to-hand fighting still was
reported raging yesterday, how-
ever, at two other outposts on
that far western sector.
Allied fighter-bombers and-night
bombers, with the help of furious
cannonading from U. S. 7th Divi-
sion batteries, turned Old Baldy
into a sea of flames after the last
Americans pulled off the strategic
height yesterday.

Clark said there was no indi-
cation the new Red attacks fore-

Set in the atmosphere of the
wild Irish country-side, the Arts
Theater's first production of John
Millington Synge's "Playboy o
the Western World" will open at
8:30 p.m. today at the theater
2092 E. Washington.
In order to recreate Synge's vil-
lage life, a highly realistic set will
be used. Bread, chicken, cakes and
little brown jugs will flavor the
performance which takes place u

LEN ROSENSEN, director of the
play, sees it as a satiric indict-
ment against society, closely par-
alleling Voltaire's "Candide." Like
the theater's recent production o
"Oedipus Rex" the plot of Synge's
play deals with a family killing.
Hy Berman, business manager o
the group, announced that because
of the forthcoming spring vaca-
tion, students interested in see-
ing the play will only be able t
do so for a week, since the pro.
duction is scheduled to close th
second week in April.
TERESA HUGHES, who is the
