The possibility that the reopened1

gation of the University and other
colleges in the state was denied
again yesterday by Arthur L.
Brandon, director of University
Commenting on the declaration
by Rep. Kit Clardy (R-Mich.) to
reopen a full-dress expose of
Midwest college Reds in Detroit
this fall, Brandon said the an-
nouncement is similar to the one
received by President Hatcher

Velde (R-Ill.) earlier this year.
The Velde telegram was received
by Pres. Hatcher on January 12,

Oil Vote Called;
Holland Bill To Be Decided May 5;
Local YD's Urge Student Protest
By The Associated Press
Senate agreement for a final vote May 5 wiped out yesterday the
threat of round-the-clock debate on state vs. federal ownership oft
submerged coastal lands.l
The break came after almost four weeks of talking mostly byj
opponents of a bill by Sen. Holland (D-Fla.) to give the states own-z
ership of the cisputed lands within their historic boundaries.
The Senate promptly agreed to the May 5 vote proposal madel
by Sen. Anderson (D-NM.), a leader in the opposition forces. That

cated that the 1953 Detroit hear-

will not amount to an investigation

Noted Chopin pianist Alexander
Brailowsky will open the 60th an-
nual May Festival at 8:30 p.m. to-
morrow in Hill Auditorium.
Brailowsky's Chopin cycle, pre-
senting the life work of the Po-
lish composer, was the climactic
event of the musical season in New
York three years ago.
With Eugene Ormandy con-
ducting the. Philadelphia Orches-
tra, Brailowsky will perform Cho-
pin's "Concerto No. 1 in E minor,
Op. 11." The Orchestra will play
Brahms' "Academic Festival" Ov-
erture. Op. 80 and Prokofieff's
"Symphony No. '7."
Although especially known for
his Chopin interpretations, Brai-
lowsky includes most of the great
classic composers in his repetoire.
Born in Kiev, Russia in 1897,
Brailowsky followed in the foot-
steps of his musician-father. Aft-
er attending the Kiev Conserva-
tory of Music, the young pianist
studied in Vienna under Lesche-
tizsky, who had previously taught
Ignace Jan Paderewski. the world-
famed pianist.
With his Paris debut in 1920}
the Russian-born pianist scored
a triumph that made him the talk
of the French capital overnight.
The great French conductor, Ca-
mille Chevillard considered him
"The ideal Beethoven player."
The season of 1924-25 brought
Brailowski to America for the
first time. Since then the famed
musician has performed with near-
ly all the major symphony orches-
tras in the nation.
According to New York Times
music Critic Olin Downes, on one
New York appearance, Brailowsky
"brought down the house . . . and
was playing encores to a packed
house far into the evening."
Coed Union Talk
Slated for Today
The Union Board of Directors
will hold a joint meeting with the
League Board of Governors at 8!
p.m. today in the Union to dis-
cuss coed union problems involved
in the proposed Union wing.
According to spokesmen from
both groups no formal action is
expected. Also on the agenda will
be approval by the Union Board of
the chairman of next year's Union

"THE VOTE can be May 5. May
15 or May 25 as far as I'm coa-
cerned," he said, but he demanded
either that some time limit be fix-
ed or that the Senate go into con-
tinuous session.
Arrangements for such a mar-
athonalreadhad been made,
BtTaft and Democratic lead-
er Johnson of Texas had arrang-
ed to have some members on the
floor throughout the night, and
cots were ordered from a base-
ment storage room to permit
catnaps by senators subject to
call at any time.
Here on campus the Young
Democrats executive board passed
a resolution vigorously opposing
the passage of the Graham-Hol-
land Acts giving valuable Federal!
off-shore lands to the states. The
board asked students to contact
their senators in protest.
Long hours of debate still are in
prospect, but normal six-hour ses-
sions are more likely than the 12-
hour stints ordered several nights
last week and the round-the-clock
session when Morse spoke last

historic boundaries. For most

The bill makes no provisions for
the lands beyond those limits.
Before adjourning until noon to-
day. the Senate rejected 58 to 26
an amendment by Sen. Douglas
(D-Ill.) which would have limit'
ed all states, including Texas and
Florida, to three miles.
Sen. Ferguson (R-Mich.) and
Sen. Potter (R-Mich.) were among
those voting against the amend-
Douglas' proposal also would
have provided for federal admin-
istration of the continental shelf
beyond the three-mile limit, with
all federal revenues from the sub-
merged lands dedicated to school
aid for states after the end of the
national emergency.

have captured the mountain de -
fense post of Paksong, 42 mils
northeast of Luangprabang, the
royal Laotian capital, a French
high command spokesmn an-
nounced yesterday.
The spokesman said he did not
know whether the French-Laotian
garrison had been withdrawn or
wl ether the Vietminh over-
whelmed it in battle.
At LIyar,gprabang, a French ma-
jor estimated Monday that ad-
vance Vietminh elements were

and within 25 miles on the east.
THE EXACT position of the en-

Pact Plan
State Department, turning down
a renewed Soviet proposal for a
Big Five peace pact, appealed yes-
terday to Moscow not to let re-
cent efforts to settle East-West
differences "degenerate into a
mere propaganda battle."
A spokesman made plain that
the U.S. regarded the proposal,
advanced by Soviet Foreign Min-
ister Molotov, as Communist pro-
paganda unworthy of serious con-
sideration by the West.
Molotov advanced it in a mes-
sage to the "Congress of the Peo-
ples in Defense of Peace." The
State Department described that
as a long-time front for the inter-
national Communist youth move-

French Club To Present
Moliere's 'Tartuffe Today
The French Club will present "Tartuffe ou l'Imposteur," a play
once forbidden to be performed in public, at 8 p.m. today in Lydia
Mendelssohn Theater.
Produced for the first time in 1669, Louis XIV banned the play
because of its attack on religious fanatics who refuse to listen to rea-
son. Later the famed French king reversed his decision and the play
became one of the most often-performed works in French theater.
PROF. CHARLES E. KOELLA of the French department directed
the play which tells the story of an imposter who disrupted the life of
__________--ri:a religious fanatic.
