Ike Pushes
Health Plan
Investigation
Says Usefulness
NeedsChecking
LOS ANGELES - (P) - Gen.
r Dwight Eisenhower declared last
night that the question of -using
federal government loans to bol-
ster local health insurance plans
should be thoroughly examined,
but he repeated his firm opposi-
tion to socialized medicine.
The Republican presidential
candidate, surveying the whole
field of social security legislation,
said in a major speech prepared
for delivery here:
"Our doctors will be among the
first to admit that at present too
many of our people live too far
from adequate medical aid, that
too many of our people find the
costs of adequate medical care are
too heavy."
* * *
HE SAID voluntary non-profit
hospital insurance plans have been
expanded at "an amazing rate,"
but, he continued, neither these
systems, "nor the administration's
proposal for national socialized
medicine cover all the people."
Therefore, the general de-
clared: "The usefulness of fed-
eral loans or other aid to local
health plans should be explored."
But, in line with the general pol-
icy he has been laying down for
less federal government control in
functions which could be handled
locally, he added:
"The strength of voluntary
action and community admin-
istration must be preserved."
Similarly,. he proposed with re-
spect to schools and educational
facilities that the federal govern-
ment assist the individual states
in the cases where, for lack of ade-
quate resources, the'state is un-
able to do the job itself. Eisen-
hower hit squarely at the Truman
administration on this point, con-
trasting what he said is the Demo-
cratic formula with the one he
proposes.
"Here again," he argued, "the
answer of the present administra-
tion is more federal bureaucracy
and increased federal controls.
That is not the American answer."
Instead, he said, the national
government should step in with fi-
nancial aicl to build schools, but
not to bring about "thought con-
trol."
Birth Control
Through Pill
Use Reported
WASHINGTON-()-Success-
ful human use of pills as a method
of birth control was reported yes-
terday by a Boston doctor.
Simultaneously, a Roman Cath-
olic theologian ' said any use of
such pills with the "direct intent
of preventing conception would be
a violation of the divine law as it
affects birth, according to Cath-
olic interpretation of God's law."
* k F
4METHODIST Bishop G. Brom-
ley Oxnam took a different view.
He said it was in accord with mor-
al law to enable mothers to space
the birth of their children "with
due regard for health, education
and service to society."
The report on the new pills

was made by Dr. Benjamin Sieve
who, while reporting preliminary
success with them, declared fur-
ther extensive studies must be
made "before the general use of
this anti-fertility factor is war-
ranted."
Sieve, in a report in the tech-
nical journal "Science," said 298
married couples had experienced
complete lack of fertility during
periods ranging from three to 30
months while taking the 'pills.
HE EMPHASIZED that the ,an-
ti-fertility action of the chemical
prevails only while it is being
taken.
It is believed to act as an anti-
fertility factor, he added, by in-
terferring with the action of a
body chemical called "hyaluroni-
dase" which in turn is believed to
aid in the impregnation of the fe-
male egg by the male sperm.

Stevenson Gets

Secretary of Labor Says Workers
Can Make Own Political Decisions
Secretary of Labor Maurice J. Tobin, politicking throughout the
Midwest on behalf of Gov. Adlai Stevenson, stopped briefly in Ann
Arbor yesterday.
Commenting on the political endorsement given Stevenson by both
the CIO and the AF of L, the Secretary said that "the American
worker is intelligent enough to decide whether the advice of his

BUFFALO, N.Y. W) - President
Truman told a roaring but under-
capacity crowd in Memorial Audi-
torium last night that Republican
hotheads and some Democrats are
waging a phony campaign against
Communists for the sole purpose
of getting votes.
This could rip the nation apart,
he declared, and, forecasting new
and heavier attacks on the peo-
Gov. Adlai Stevenson will

Up to You" series for women.
ple's liberties in the next four
years, he said this is no time to
put in the White House "a profes-
sional military general" - Dwight
D. Eisenhower-to defend the Bill
of Rights.
. * *
SEATING arrangements were
made for 14,000 at this industrial
city's largest indoor auditorium
but there were sections of empty
seats. Police Commissioner Mi-
chael C. Noeppel estimated the
crowd at 7,500.
It was a noisy, responsive
crowd, though, giving Truman
one of the warmest receptions
he has received on his coast-to-
coast tour for Gov. Adlai Steven-
son.
It roared applause when Tru-
man, biting off his words, spoke
out against putting a general in
the White House.
THE BUFFALO speech climaxed
a day of whistle stopping across
Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania in
which Truman at one point called
Eisenhower the "big brass window
dressing" for reactionary Republi-
cans.
He blasted away at the RepUb-
licans from Indianapolis to Buffalo;
with typical Truman fervor and
accused them of plotting to "mur-
der wlhat's left of price controls"
although Dwight D. Eisenhower
has "moaned and groaned about;
high prices."

Possible Lift
In Production
Seen by Adlai
475 Billion Goal
Set for Decade
ST. LOUIS-(P)-Governor Ad-
lai E. Stevenson said last night a
government teaming with "free
and daring, men" can lift Amer-
ica's production to 475 billion dol-
lars a year within the next decade.
"A new day is dawning," the
Democratic presidential nominee
declared in an address prepared
for declared in an address pre-
pared for delivery at Kiel Audi-
torium here.
* * *
THE OPPORTUNITIES he sees
ahead, along "America's new
frontier," Stevensons said can be
achieved only through policies and
programs embraced by the Demo-
cratic party.
"Right now," he said, "there
are 62 million Americans at
work. During the next 10 years,
there will be 10 million more
Americans ready and able to
work.
With their help, we can lift our
production from 336 billion dol-
lars a year to 475 billion dollars a
year."
That would work out to a boost
of 139 billion-41 per cent.
THE ADDRESS topped off a
day of campaigning across Mis-
souri and into a corner of Illinois
-a perfect fall day that produced
in Kansas City probably the big-
gest crowd Stevenson has collect-
ed up to now.
It produced, too, some advice
from the Illinois governor that
the people ought to watch out
for another depression if they
elect what he termed the "do
nothing, care nothing, know
nothing" GOP and its "honor-
ary" presidential candidate, Gen.
Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Digging for votes in President
Truman's home state of Missouri,
the visiting governor from Illinois
had warm words for the chief ex-

'Stadium Rule
Bars Patient
From Game
A University Hospital polio pa-
tient was refused permission yes-
terday to attend Saturday's Mich-
igan-Indiana football game be-
cause of a Stadium policy against
wheelchair patients.
The policy exists because of the
difficulty of getting a wheel chair
into the stadium, according to
ticket manager Don Weir.
THE PATIENT concerned is
Dicky Brinks, 9 years old, who has
been at the respiratory center for
three years.
Although he is completely
paralyzed and requires a respir-
ator, he was considered well
enough this summer to attend
a baseball game in Briggs Stad-
ium.
Hospital officials tried several
weeks ago to purchase a box seat
so that the boy, an avid sports
fan, could see the game. They were
told at first that they might get
the ticket. However, Athletics
Director Prof. Herbert O. Crisler
later reversed this, clarifying the
stadium policy.
Prof. Crisler could not be reach-

ed last night for comment.

also said that workers now have
a chance to share in the increased
productivity that comes with a
higher standard of living.
Tobin, who recently made an
intensive speaking tour of New
York, was confident that Stev-
enson would carry the state
Nov. 4.
And calling the popular appeal
of Gov. G. Mennen Williams an
important factor here, he also pre-
dicted that the Democrats would
carry Michigan.
After a speech in Jackson last
night, Tobin headed east to Pitts-1
burgh and Buffalo.
Sunday he will tour many small
coal mining communities of south-
ern Illinois, and then 'dine with
Gov. Stevenson Sunday evening.
City Sets Record
For IRegistrationl
Ann Arbor set a record for vot-
er's registration with 23,661 resi-
dents eligible to cast ballots in the
Nov. 4 general election, City Clerk
Fred J. Looker announced yester-
day.
The figure represents an in-
crease of 2,600 since registration
closed for the primary last Aug-
ust.
Percentagewise, 49 percent of
the city's eligible voters registered,
although if the student popula-
tion of 12,000 is subtracted the
percentage climbs to 65.2.
This "much more accurately re-
flects the situation," according to
Looker.
Looker also noted that the reg-
istrants would not include "more
than a couple of hundred" stu-
dents.

Conference
Sees Cancer
Cure Ahead
EAST LANSING-(P)-Progress
is being made in the fight against
cancer, a Grand Rapids physician
told a cancer conference here yes-
terday.
Speaker at the fourth annual
Michigan Cancer Conference at
Michigan State College was Dr
C. Allen Payne of Blodgett Mem-
orial Hospital, Grand Rapids.
"State and national statistics
are beginning to show evidence
that cancer is yielding to our all-
out attack," Dr. Payne said.
HE OUTLINED three indica-
tions of progress being made in
cancer control.
1-Studies of reasons for delay
-in diagnosis and treatment of
cancer show considerable im-
provement during the past three
decades.
2-Definite improvement has
been shown by case studies in the
five year survival rate and the
number of cases cured over the
past two or three decades.
3-A study shows that the
death rate in females has fallen
in the past 12 years and that the
male death rate, which has risen,
now appears to be leveling off.
Cancer quacks were attacked in
another address, by Dr. Fred Hom-
burger, director of the Cancer Re-
search and Control Unit of Tufts
Medical College, Boston.
McCarthy Upholds
Anti-Red Methods
SAGINAW, (R) - Sen. Joseph
McCarthy (R-Wis) last night told
his critics that "there is no dain-
tier way of fighting Communism
than McCarthyism."
In a direct answer to criticism
by Gov. Adlai Stevenson and Sen.
Blair Moody (D-Mich) McCarthy
advised voters to ask them "what
method they would use and how
many Communists they have ex-
posed."

and then lost it in predawn dark-
ness.
A frontline officer described
the battle on the crest as "a
free-for-all with bayonets, gre-
nades and fists."
The ROKs had retaken the peak
from the Chinese after midnight
but four hours later a Red bat-
talion swarmed up the northern
slope and forced the South Kor-
eans back-about 20 yards from
the crest.
* * *
AT 6:50 A.M. the regrouped
ROKs surged back, across the crest
under withering cover . of Allied
big guns.
At last reports the ROKs were
"holding their own" against
Chinese counter-attacks from
the northern slope. An estimated
3,000 Reds are dug in on the
long slope.
White Horse Mountain is astride
the historic invasion route from
North Korea to the Southern Ko-
rean capital of Seoul.

ACTION slackened elsewhere on
the front.
There was a freshoutbreak of
dogfights in the air. The Fifth
Air Force said Sabres shot down
two MIGs and damaged three
over Northwest Korea.
Most of the air punch was re-
served for the fighting front.
ALLIED casualties on White
Horse Mountain were not given,
but they no doubt were severe.
A U. S. Eighth Army briefing
officer said evaluated Communist
casualties for the first week of
October-which included the heavy
Chinese assaults all across the
Western and Central Fronts Mon-
day night-were the heaviest in
almost a year: 4,786 killed; 2,692
wounded and 50 prisoners. Total:
7,528.
Frontline estimates .of Chinese
losses on White Horse' Mountain
alone in the continuous fighting.
since Monday night totalled 8,000.
The peak has changed hands at
least 13 times since the Chinese
assaults started.

yesterday there was a slight pos-
sibility the order on feminine ap-
parel might be delayed a couple of
weeks and the men's clothing di-
rective pushed up 'so they may be

He said some items such as rub-

Rlobeson
Case Slated
For Today
The Circuit Court of Washte-
naw County will ,review today a
claim of breach of contract filed
by the Progressive Party against
the Masonic Temple.
The decision will determine
whether or not Paul Robeson, co-
chairman of the Progressive Party,
and Vincent Hallinan, the party's
presidential candidate, will be
heard at a political rally Oct. 9
in the Masonic Auditorium.
THE PROGRESSIVE Party filed
the claim after the Board of Di-
rectors of the Masonic Temple
refused use of the building for the
rally. They had earlier agreed to
rent the hall, and Harry H. Ma-
hey, Masonic Temple business
manager, gave the Party members
a receipt.
Progressives' counsel John
Houston has contended that the
receipt constitutes a contract
violated by the Mason's Board
of Directors.
"We are asking that the con-
tract be enforced."
HOWEVER, Prof. Glenn Alt of
the engineering college, chairman
of the Masonic Board of birectors
said that the board reserves the
right to review all requests for use
of their auditorium and that the
receipt does not constitute a con-
tract.
The Progressives charged in
their court brief that, at the time
the receipt was signed, Mahey
knew that Paul Robeson would be
among the scheduled speakers.
Several hundred tickets have
been sold for the rally, the Pro-
gressives said.
* * *
MEANWHILE, the James Land
Post of the Veterans of Foreign
Wars issued a statement last night
condemning, the' action of the
Washtenaw County Council of
Veterans who had protested rental
of the Masonic Auditorium to the
Prgressives.
The statement said that, since
the Progressive Party is legally
on the Michigan ballot, it is their
right to use community facili-
ties without "censorship."
It also charged the Veterans
Council and the Masons' Board of
Directors with being "determined
to maintain Jim' Crowism in .Ann
Arbor," saying that they want to
"prevent the appearance in Ann
Arbor of Paul Robeson, one of the
foremost fighters for the rights
of the Negro people."
Finally, it protested that no.
Negro members of the Council
were consulted prior to its action,
and urged that the Council with-
drew its protest.
