Police Cracking Down
On, Obscene Literature
In a sweeping directive the Ann Arbor police department has
ordered all local book dealers to clear their shelves of "obscene"
pocket books within a month or face public prosecution.
The order, issued by Detective Sgt. Claude Damron, is part of a
county-wide drive to remove a steadily increasing influx of obscene
literature from public sale.

No-strike Voted
By OtherQuads
West Quad busboys will be called
back to work today by leader John
Curry, '55NR as a result of a 'no-
strike' vote taken last night in
busboy meetings in East and South
The action was taken pending a
tri-quad meting Tuesday with
Leonard Schaadt, residence halls
business manager.
SIX EAST QUAD workers willi
meet today to discuss next year's1
wage schedule and other busboyI
grievances. Monday -the situationi
will be aired at general meetings1
of South and West quad busboys;
and, later the same evening, at a
meeting of several representatives1
from each quad.
Action at last night's meetingsi
followed talks at East and South
quads by Roger Kidston, '54, East
Quad president.
Kidston, who had conferred with
Schaadt earlier in the day, told
the busboys that "no wage increase
seems possible at this time." He
explained that Schaadt has to
plan his wage schedule in accord-
ance with the residence halls bud-
get which is separate from the
University's budget.

IFC Initiates
Dress Rules
After 12 years of strict formality,
the IFC Ball has gone the way of
similar dances throughout the na-
tion, and turned semi-formal.
The change, announced yester-
day by retiring IFC president Pete
Thorpe, '53, is designed to increase
the popularity of the dance by re-
laxing formal dress rules.
BY DEFINITION, women may
wear either a ballerina or full
length gown while men may at-
tend the dance in either a dark
blue suit or white dinner jacket.
As a formal dance, the IFC
Ball has fallen on bad times in
recent years with a $600 loss
being sustained last year.
Tickets for the Ball, to be held
from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday,
May 9, at the Intra-Murl Bldg.
may be purchased for $3.60 in the
lobby of the Administration Bldg.
The dance will feature Ralph
Flanagan and his orchestra.

last night to discuss the outcome

Kidston said that the East Quad

Peron Hits
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -
(P)-Addressing Congress on a
May Day opened with a series of
bomb explosions, President Juan
D. Peron charged yesterday that
imperialist forces abroad were
trying to weaken his government
and block South American unity.
He denounced the United States
by implication-and former U.S.
Ambassador Spruille Braden, the
Christian Science Monitor of Bos-
ton and three American news
agencies by name-in a speech of
two hours, 10 minutes on the po-
litical state of the nation.
SIX BOMBS had been fired-
mostly harmlessly in open spaces
-before Peron made his 2%-mile
ride to the Capitol along a route
lined by policemen at 10-yard in-
The seventh, apparently bur-
ied in a sandpile at the building
under construction less than a
block from the capital, went off
while he was speaking. It did
some damage and rattled win-
dows for several miles.
Peron accused The Associated
Press, United Press and Interna-
tional News Service of spreading
lies about him and said "I will ask
the honorable Congress for a quick
complete and urgent investiga-
tion, as well as deserved punish-
Argentina's economic crisis has
been overcome, Peron delared, but
the three have tried to show that
the nation is in the midst of an
emergency to demonstrate that the
Peronista party's "social justice"
is nothing but a slogan.
When a million workers rally at
the Plaza de Mayo, he said, the
news agencies "can see only 100,-
000 public employes who, accord-
ing to the agencies, were forced
to attend."
Bishop Backs
Birth Control
"Birth control is not a sin if
used wisely and soberly," the Rt.
Reverend Richard Emrich, Epis-
copal Bishop of the Diocese of
Michigan said last night at the
Canterbury House in the third of
a series of five lectures sponsored
by the Episcopalian Student Foun-
Speaking on the subject "Birth
Control, Sin? Christian?" he ex-
plained that planned parenthood
knowledge like any other scientific
or medical knowledge should be
used by man to eliminate human
Bishop Emrich cited the fact,
however, that knowledge of birth
control like knowledge of atomic
energy places upon man the "re-
sponsibility of not using it against
the will of God." Childlessness is
against God's will, and we must
not use birth control to commit
this sin.

He maintained that planned
parenthood was not against mar-
riage's divine purpose, to propa-
gate the race, as it enabled parents
to give their children a more se-
cure and happy upbringing.

'NI' 'Baseball Team
Nips Gophers, 10-6
Michigan used a silver platter and a versatile relief pitcher to
pound out its fourth consecutive Big Ten baseball triumph yesterday,
a 10-6 walkathon over invading Minnesota.
The first-place Wolverines meet Iowa today in a double-header
scheduled for 1:30 p.m. at Ferry Field.

THE SILVER PLATTER in yesterday's single game was provided
by four Gopher moundsmen who served up ten walks, two hit batsmen
and a wild-pitch to figure in every one of the Maize and Blue's

Although the present drive is
aimed solely at pocket books,
Damron expects his department
to start a clean-up drive against
"girlie" magazines soon.
Within a month, book dealers
refusing to comply with the order
will be prosecuted, Damron said.
"BY GIVING dealers time to
remove these books from their
stands, we are trying to be as fair
as possible," he added. "However,
we expect their cooperation in re-

The police department's order is
authorized by an old state law con-
trolling the sale of obscene litera-
ture. Wayne County has made full
use of the statute in recent weeks
by banning many pocket books,
"girlie" magazines and "indecent"
comic books.
Locally, the Washtenaw county
sheriff's department and Ypsilanti
and Michigan State police are co-
operating in the county-wide cam-
paign. This will ensure against
prospective buyers travelling out-
side the Ann Arbor city limits to
purchase obscene literature.

Reds Refuse
To Nominate
Neutral State
Sabres Hit City
Ini Quick Attack
By The Associated Press
The UN Command today was
growing more and more suspicious
of Red objectives at the Panmun-
jom truce table as the reborn talks
rounded out a week of futility.
The long-recessed discussions
got going last Sunday after seem-
ing Communist peace overtures
from Moscow and Peiping but so
far the .overtures have failed to
bear fruit.
At another session, the Com-
munists today discussed four
Asian nations in the revived
armistice talks .but refused to
nominate any as a neutral. The
Reds said that among the Asi-
an nations they would consider
neutral were India, Pakistan,
Burma and Indonesia.
The Reds said they would not
nominate any of the four until the
Allies agree first to send prison-
ers to such a neutral state.
Earlier, Rear Adm. John C. Dan-
iel said he had "indisputable evi-
dence" that the Reds still hold 375
disabled Allied prisoners, despite
their assurance that the 684 al-
ready returned cleans the slate.
The trade now is a one-way af-
fair. The UN was turning over
probably its last batch of 500 ail-
ing Red captives today, running
the total to nearly 7,000.
Lee Sang Cho, the Red liaison
chief, pushed aside Daniels' de-
mand for 375 more ailing Allied
POWs, saying the admiral's claim
was "a willful slander."
He said the Reds do hold an
-undisclosed number of Allied
sick and wounded but these are
"not fit to travel because of
their physical condition."
In Tokyo, a returned prisoner,
Sgt. James F. Daniel, a medic
from Alameda, Calif., said he had
access to Red medical recods
showing that 2,538 captive Allies
died of starvation and diseaseIn
less than a year.
Meanwhile, fifty U.S. Sabres ID
their deadly new role of dive
bombers hurled destruction yes-
terday on the North Korean capi-
tal at Pyongyang.
The Fifth Air Force did not say
what damage was wrought by the
lightning raid.
POW Victims
Of Propaganda
In California
Calif.-(P)-A planeload of re-
patriated American prisoners of
war from Korea, designated by the
Air Force as "victims of Com-
munist propaganda," arrived here
yesterday under a cloak of mili-
tary secrecy.
The Air Force did not announce
the arrival and it didn't become
known until one of the POWs, Cpl.
Paul Schnur Jr. of San Francisco,
was taken to Letterman hospital
in that city 40 miles southwest of
The cloak of secrecy was clamp-
ed down Thursday when the plane
left Tokyo. The Air Force said it
was ordered by the Pentagon and
issued this statement:
"We are co-operating with the

other military services in main-
taining security over this partic-
ular operation, because of the posi-
tion taken by the Army and others
that these men may have been
misled under conditions of duress
and hardship during the period of
their captivity."
