Arts Theatre Presents
Colonel Wotherspoon'
"Some. are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have
greatness thrust upon them-while some write best sellers."
According to the famous Scotch playwright James Bridie, this
switch on Shakespeare's well-known line tells the story of "Colonel
Wotherspoon, or, A Fourth Way to Greatness," opening at 8:30 p.m.
today at the Arts Theatre, 209% E. Washington St.

In Formulation
By The Associated Press
Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower al-
ready is shaping up a program for
taking over the immense power
and responsibility that his record-
breaking vote for president called
on him to assume.
The outline of this program
stands out from the messages al-
ready exchanged between Presi-
dent Truman and the President-
elect in the 60ahours since Eisen-
hower's election landslide over
Gov. Adlai Stevenson.
* * ,,
WEDNESDAY President Tru-
man invited Eisenhower to send a
representative to work with bud-
get director Frederick J. Lawton
in preparing the government oper-
ational budget. It will be submitted
to Congress in January, 1953.
Eisenhower followed up the
President's invitation with the
suggestion that President Truman
propose "other individuals for in-
doctrination in several different
As for himself, he accepted an
invitation to meet with the Pres-
ident and suggested early in the
week of Nov. 17 as the time.
Meanwhile, Eisenhower's run-
ning mate, Sen. Richard Nixon
returned yesterday to Washing-
ton from his home in California.
Nixon told reporters he expects
to resign his Senate seat before the
new Congress meets on Jan. 3.
This will allow Gov. Earl War-
ren of California to appoint a
man prior to Jan. 3 to take Nix-
on's place, and the appointee
thus will have seniority over the
new senators who were elected
Tuesday. In the Senate, where
Jos are decided on the basis of
seniority, this is important.
Warren said Wednesday night
he would appoint' some southern
California Republican.
Panel Speaks
A panel of three, Jack Widick
of the CIO Political Action Com-
mittee, Professors Henry Bretton
and Marshall M. Knappen of the
political science department, dis-
cussed the causes and effects of
the Eisenhower landslide before
the Students for Democratic Ac-
tion last night.
Widick, a member of Detroit's
UAW, predicted a realignment of
parties with the liberal labor fac-
tion opposing the conservative
forces. He said the overwhelming
Republican victory was caused by
public dissatisfaction with the
status quo.
Attributing the election results
to Eisenhower's personality com-
bined with the need for leadership,
Prof. Bretton pointed out the dis-
appearance of the usual voting
Faculty sponsor of the SDA,
Prof. Knappen, felt the Democrats
had over-intellectualized and over-
estimated the place of issues in
the campaign. He went on to say
that the common man is no longer
operating from economic motives
but is thinking in broader terms
because he no longer has to worry
about an empty stomach.

Sea Defense
Zone Upheld
By The Associated Press
States firmly supported yester-
day, Gen. Mark Clark's creation
of a sea defense zone in Korean
waters and spurned a Russian pro-
test of it.
Thekzone was set up to prevent
attacks on the South Korean
coast, to secure allied lines of
communication and to prevent
the smuggling of contraband and
enemy agents into South Korean
Clark emphasized particularly
the need to prevent enemy agents
from reaching prisoner of war
camps set up on Korean islands.
Across the Pacific the battle in
the skies over Korea broke out
yesterday after a relative calm,
and U.S. Sabre pilots claimed one
Red MIG jet destroyed and 11

was disturbed only by a futile

in a storm of artillery fire.

To Win Prize
DETROftY-(P)-The city of De-
troit, which organized the Ballot
Battalion League to get out the
vote, thinks it has a good chance
of winning the pennant.
Through the mayor's office, the
local Ballot Battalion hurled a
challenge to seven other cities.
With the exception of Los Angeles,
which took the place of Washing-
ton, the cities are the same as the
ones in the American baseball.
The total Detroit registration
was 988,307 and the best unoffi-
cial estimate of the total vote was
844,021. That figures out to about'
85.4 per cent.
But the final winner will be
based on official canvasses, and
they won't be completed for pos-
sibly a week or more.

Project research, the processed co-
balt's power is equal to that of ap-

STATISTICALLY, the radioac-

an insecticide several times more
powerful than DDT.
Transportation of the valuable
material will involve few inter-
national difficulties, according to
Prof. Lloyd E. Brownell of the en-
gineering college. The prevailing
sentiment among officials who will
supervise the transfer of the co-
balt seems to be to "speed it on
its way as fast as possible," Prof.
Brownell said.
The cobalt is destined on arrival
