'Ike Lacks
Backbone'
Stevenson
Dem Candidatet
Raps About Face
MILWAUKEE--(P)-Gov. Adlai
Stevenson rapped Gen. Dwight D.
Eisenhower Wednesday night as
grasping for votes with an about
face on European policy-and
displaying lack of backbne --t
a nameless endorsement of Sen.
Joseph R. McCarthy of Wiscon-
sin.
"My opponent," Stevenson said,
"has been worrying about my fun-
nybone. I'm worrying about his
backbone"
THE RAKING attack on the
general and senator closed out the
Democratic presidential nominee's
campaign for Wisconsin and 12
electoral votes.
In an address prepared for de-
livery at the Milwaukee Arena,
Stevenson went after Eisenhow-
er this way on American policy
in Europe:
"No other issue reveals more
strikingly the tactics in this elec-
tion of the Republican leadership
-the use of one man's good name
to camouflage a bad record, and
that man's willingness to com-
promise his own views in oppor-
tunistic grasping for support in
this election."
Stevenson said his GOP rival
actively backed every development
in U. S. policy toward Europe from
1945 to 1952, then became a presi-
dential candidate and "overnight
he changed his mind about what
he stood for."
YR Tables
Endorsement
The Young Republicans voted
last night to table until next week
a motion endorsing the civil
rights platform of the-Republican
Party.
At the meeting three motions
were proposed by members of the
club. The first, in addition to pre-
senting the party platform, sug-
t gested a change in the Senate
closure rule.
Earlier in the evening newly
elected President Ned Simon, an-
nounced that, due to a tight sched-
ule Senator Richard Nixon, who
will be in Ann Arbor between 9:00
and 10:00 a.m. next Wednesday,
will have to speak from the rear
platform of his.campign train. The
topic of the Senator's speech has
not yet been announced.
In elections for this semester's
officers the YR's chose Simon
President, Jo Scherer, '53, Vice
President, and Bob Hailton, Grad,
Secretary.

Contract Denied
To Progressives
Masons' Ruling Halts Robeson Talk;
Court Action Will Begin This Friday
By MARK READER
The Board of Directors of the Masonic Temple of Ann Arbor
yesterday refused the use of their auditorium to the Progressive Party
for a political rally originally scheduled for Oct. 19.
Paul Robeson, co-chairman of the party, and Vincent Hallinan,
Progressive presidential nominee, were among those who we're to
have spoken at the rally.
IN A BRIEFLY WORDED letter dated Oct. 8, Prof. Glenn Alt,
of the engineering school, and chairman of the board said that the
"request for use of the building had

Concert Season Gets Underway

Red Attack Slows

Near Breakdown

SEOUL-The big Chinese push jarred to a halt yesterday in a
carnage of casualties on a peak guarding the road to Seoul, but the
Reds threw fresh hundreds into the flaming battle.
South Korean infantry at the point of the bayonet drove the
Chinese from the summit of White Horse Hill, about 50 miles north of
this Korean capital, and stood firm against a storm of counter-
attacks, field dispatches said.

A METROPOLITAN tenor and
an enthusiastic capacity au-

Arborites-these were the ingre-
dients for the opening concert of
74th annual Choral Union series
at Hill Auditorium last night.
To local concert devotees, the
occasion meant that fall,1952, was
now completely underway. To ten-
or Richard Tucker, who appeared
for the first time on the imposing
Hill Auditorium stage, the concert

before a college audience was ofj
the kind he "most enjoys doing."
THE TENOR'S recital gave new
University opera director Prof. Jo-
sef Blatt a chance to work again
with his one-time Metropolitan
Opera associate, Tucker. Prof.
Blatt, former conductor at the
Metropolitan, accompanied Tuck-
er last night in his diversified, ap-
pealing program.
Whether his old friend Prof.

responsible, the genial tenor com-

at home on the unfamiliar concert
stage as in the middle of an opera
set at the Metropolitan.

The speech, much of it "off
the cuff," was a rapid fire ans-
wer to the farm address of the
President. Taft listened to the
Truman address by radio and
drafted his own speech notes
during the intervening two
hours.
Lt. David Herrick of the Iowa
State Patrol estimated the crowd
at the Truman speech, given open-
air at the high school football
fiel& at 10,000. He calculated the
Taft crowd was just about as
large.
Taft got a round of hand claps
and laughs when he declared:
"You'd think the New Deal had
invented agriculture and invent-
ed prosperity."

Truman's Foreign Policy

prsident said the negotiations in
Panmunjom were designed to gain
time for the Communists, that
they have repaired their military
positions, and today are half again
as strong as they were when the
talks started.
"THE SOVIET trap was per-
fectly conceived, perfectly timed,
perfectly sprung," he said.I
"The Communist military po-
sition has been repaired. Beyond
that, it has probably been made
half again as strong. . . . We
came to realize that we havej
been swindled."
The San Francisco speech was
one of the key addresses in Eisen-
hower's whole campaign for the
presidency. His policital advisers
were attaching heavy significance
to it.
EISENHOWER pointed heavy
guns at three major objectives in
his San Francisco address.
1. He bitterly criticized and ridi-
culed the courses the administra-
tion has been following since the
end of World War II, pouring par-
ticular scorn on Secretary of State
Dean Acheson.
,2. He explained, and defended,

these policies, and his, role, as
Army chief of staff, at the time.
the "defense perimeter" in Asia
was drawn. President Truman has
accused Eisenhower of now at-
tempting to disavow his role in
these vast decisions.
3. He laid down his ideas for
meeting the menace of the cold
war, and turning it to the advan-
tage of the free world.
Truman Calls
GOP Stand
'Catastrophic'
ABOARD TRUMAN TRAIN (P)
-President Truman Wednesday
night pictured Dwight D. Eisen-
hower and his backers as opposed
to federal aid to education at a
time when the money crisis in the
schools is approaching the "catas-
trophic."
Truman chose Jefferson City, in
his home state of Missouri, to
charge the Republicans with tak-
ing their stand "on the side of ig-
norance," which he called "free-
dom's worst enemy."
Earlier, at Shenandoah, Ia., he
blasted the Republican presiden-
tial candidate's farm views as
"generalities, platitudes, half
truths and plain misrepresenta-
tion."

sion and French troops withstood
the shock of human-sea attacks.
An American officer said one
division alone in this western
sector had inflicted about 3,000
casualties on the Chinese since
the Reds opened their big drive
Monday night.
The U. S. Eighth Army com-
munique reported that two of
seven outpost hills overrun Mon-
day when 15,000 Reds struck along
two-thirds of the Korean front
had been recaptured. Later tacti-
cal summaries indicated, however,
that the Reds had rewon the posi-
tions.
MEANWHILE in Panmunjom
the long and frustrating Korean
armistice negotiations Thursday
appeared to be nearer collapse
than at any time since they began"
on July 10, 1951.
The Allied decision Wednes-
day to call an indefinite recess
was made on "higher authority"
and came at a time when fight-
ing in Korea reached its fiercest
pitch in a year.
A special North Korean broad-
cast heard in Tokyo 'referred to
"the failure" of the negotiations,
charged that the Allies ignored a
new Red offer, and declared re-
sponsibility "lies on the U. S."
It complained that the Allied
delegation walked out while the
new Red plan was being explain-
ed. Text of the broadcast showed,
however, the Communists had not
budged from their position that
all prisoners of war must be re-
patriated, the last major issue re-
maining.
HEAVY FIGHTING also broke
out on the Central Front around
Finger Ridge, where the Commun-
ists occupied two positions in the
first onslaught Monday.

SL Cabinet
Discussed
At Meeting
Internal criticism over activi-
ties of the Student Legislature
Cabinet came to a head at last
night's SL mieeting when members
discussed the Cabinet's function
and the philosophy behind SL's
administrative organization.
The full-dress discussion came
after SL vice-president Phil Berry,
Grad, resigned Monday from his
position because he felt that he
disagreed with most of the Legis-
lature on Cabinet functions.
* . :
BERRY'S resignation occurred
after a Cabinet meeting in which
several legislators, concerned with
the large amount of work the Cab-
inet was doing in proportion to
the rest of SL, attempted to reach
a definition of the executive body's
powers and duties.
Last night's meeting brought
the whole question to focus, and
was climaxed by the re-nomina-
tion of Berry to his post.
The veteran legislator decided
not to decline the nomination, but
added that he could not guarantee
the amount of work he could do
for SL. Immediately the Legisla-
ture returned him to his briefly
vacated position by a vote of ac-
clamation.
Vs many members stressed last
night, the Cabinet, theoretically an
executive policy making and co-
ordinating body, has had to as-
sume immediate direction over
many projects and the officers
have had to take on numerous de-
tailed jobs.
Commenting on the Legislature
as a whole, Beers said that "the
time has come for people who join-
ed SL for greater glory to be told
kindly and firmly that they should
work or get out."
Bob Perry, '52E, emphasized
that the trouble might not be
caused because the Cabinet is a
"super legislature," but rather be-
cause "the rest of the Legislature
is below par."
Former Daily
Editor To Fill
Board Position
Al Blumrosen, '53L, was ap-
pointed to the Board in Control
of Student Publications yesterday.
The appointment was made by
the Electoral Commission of the
Student Publications to fill the
vacancy left by former Board
member Len Wilcox. The commis-
sion is made up of the cabinet
members of Student Legislature
and Prof. John Reed of the Law
School, chairman of the Publica-
tions Board.
Wilcox resigned from the Board
to fill the post of national vice-
president of the National Student
Association in Philadelphia.
Blumrosen held the position of
city editor of the Daily in 1950.
At the present he is president of
the campus political organization,
Students for Stevenson.

Seniors Plan
New '1W Seal
At the cabinet meeting of the
Senior Board yesterday, plans
were formed to replace the historic
Michigan "M" seal which disap-
peared from the Diag. this sum-
mer.
A committee will be set up to
investigate the cost of financing
this project.
Petitioning is now open for sen-
iors who are interested in heading
the committee. Students may
leave their name, address, andl
phone number in Audie Murphey's
mail box in the SL Building along
with petitions for other senior
committees.

Although the subject of his
address has not yet been re-
vealed, it is believed that Harri-
man will discuss the major is-
sues of the 1952 Presidential
campaign, emphasizing foreign
policy, said a spokesman for the
club.
Earlier in the meeting, Prof.
John Dawson of the Law School,
spoke on "The Personalities of
the Presidential Candidates."
Speaking of General Eisenhower,
Prof. Dawson said, "I firmly be-
lieve that we are watching the de-
cay of a' character. A fine man is
now being put through a political
meat grinder," he continued.
"Stevenson, on the other hand,
has not compromised himself to
any outside pressure, but has had
the courage to tell the truth to
all," Dawson added.

TOUCH OF BROADWAY:
Nemerovski Writes Opera Script

By BOB APPLE
Howie Nemerovski, '54E, remov-

yesterday and blushed with mod-
esty when notified that he was
chosen to write the 1952 Union
Opera script.

cheek the 19 year old junior from

'Patriots' Who
Ban Textbooks
By JON SOBOLOFF
Urging a freer flow of cultural,
scientific and educational mater-
ials between nations, Luther H.
Evans. Librarian of ' Congress,
spoke on "Books and World Poli-
tics," 8:30 p.m. yesterday in the
Rackham Lecture Hall.
After his speech, Evans, a mem-
ber of the United States Commis-
sion for UNESCO, said vehemently
that the Los Angeles school board
"made a very grave mistake" when
it recently banned a "harmless
pamphlet" explaining the U. N.
and UNESCO from its public
schools.
"The board should have with-
stood heavy pressures based on
the worst kind of ignorance and
misguided patriotism. The board's
action violated. the fundamental
principles of our country, espec-
ially the freedom to teach the
truth. This kind of isolationism is
erupting in a good many places in
our country, but if courageous peo-
ple stand up against it, they can
win," he said.
EVANS' speech was the first of
the Randolplr G. Adams Memorial
Lectures, a series which will bring
an outstanding national figure to
the University campus once a year

SUMMER CONFERENCE:
SL Hears Full Report
On Recent NSA Meet

By HARRY LUNN
In a detailed and comprehensive
oral report last night, Student
Legislature members who attend-
ed the National Student Associa-
tion Congress held this summer
outlined the work covered at the
two week meeting.
Twenty SL members attended
the Congress which was held in
Bloomington, Ind. Initial meetings
were carried on in numerous sub-
commissions which prepared re-
ports and recommendations for
the final plenary sessions.
REPORTING on the Educational
Affairs Commission activities, Jean
Jones, '53, related that the com-
mission had recommended remov-
al of discriminatory clauses in
college fraternities and sororities.
It also backed up FEPC legis-

the finance committee. During its
brief history, the organization has
been frequently in the red, but
sounder financing methods are be-
ing introduced and a more "real-
istic" budget was drawn up, ac-
cording to Berry.
Other delegates reported on
international affairs, student
leadership programs and stu-
dent affairs. Work on the var-
ious commissions will be rnovcr((l
in more detail in succeeding ar-
ticles in The Daily's series on
the NSA.
Several University administrat-
ors who attended the conference
as observers were also on hand to
give their impressions and com-
ments on the meeting.
Associate Dean of Women
