UN Begins
Work on Lie
Assembly Given
Hot Debate Issue
The UN Assembly's steering com-
mittee yesterday unanimously re-
commended, without a word of
debate, that the Assembly take up
the politically-hot question of
naming a successor to Secretary
General Trygve Lie.
The Assembly itself is expected
to agree with the recommenda-
tion late this week or early next
week and farm out the explosive
issue to a committee for full de-
bate. There is no indication when
the subject actually will be de-

bly president who is considered a
possibility for the Lie post, con-
vened the steering committee. He
stated the question and said he
would recommend its inclusion on
the Assembly's agenda if no one
objected. No one moved.
But it was not that quiet in
the UN corridors. They are full
of rumors that Lie meant what
he said when he resigned Mon-
day, or that Lie was trying to
get a vote of confidence from
the Assembly by this method, or
that Lie could be persuaded to
stay on if the Security Council
could not agree on a successor.
One delegate who would not per-
mit identification said Lie stated
that if the Council cannot agree
on a secretary general he would
stay at his post until his extended
term ends Feb. 2, 1954. Lie's aides
counter this, however, with the
comment that Lie wants to get out
and that he is "fed tip" with all
the problems facing him.
The debate on Lie's resignation
promises to be one of the most
heated in theUN halls. Delegates
here are sayig that this really
involves the seemingly impossible
task of getting President Truman
or Olen. Eisenhower, Prime Minis-
ter Stalin, Prime Minister Chur-
chill, Premier Antoine Pinay and
Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek to
agree on one man. The big five
7 must agree on a new man under
the UN charter.

The award was presented by,

Although it was originally ex-
pected that the board would rec-
ommend someone to succeed Mur-
ray, there is now a possibility that
the board members will ignore the
issueand let it wait until Dec. 1.
A potential family fight arises
from the known desire of Walter
Reuther, president of the United
Auto Workers, to succeed Murray.
Although the Auto Workers is
the largest union in the CIO, and
pay one half of its total expenses,
there is strong resistance to
Reuther as president.
A number of other union presI-
dents are against his, becoming
president on the theory that he
and his Auto Workers would over-
shadow everybody else in the CIO.
The Steelworkers Union, of
which Murray was president, is
also opposed to Reuther becoming
president of the CIO. The union
has called a meeting of its 33-man
Executive Board for Saturday to
discuss plans. on how to elect a
new Steelworkers president.
Union leaders who oppose
Reuther are supporting Haywood

SL Opposes
Bias Claus
Friedman Motion
Gains Approval
After lengthy and detailed de-
bate, the Student Legislature last
night approved a motion to ask
the University to hereafter refuse
any scholarship grants which
must be awarded on a "basis of
race or religion."
Originally offered several weeks
ago by Ted Friedman, '53, the
proposal arose after a Daily ar-
ticle of Sept. 30 noted that the
University was currently admin-
istering four scholarships based
on criteria of race or religion.
* * *
FRIEDMAN'S proposal, which
finally passed by a three to one
margin, calls for a review of Uni-
versity policy on this matter, and
asks that any new discriminatory
grants be refused. However, the
SL motion does not propose that
preseit awards be discontinued
since they have already been ac-
cepted by the Regents and the
funds could not be returned.
Main points of debate last
night centered around the right
of the individual to give money
to the University as he pleased,
and the question of scholarships
which are offered to nationality
groups such as "women from
Oriental countries," who cur-
rently receive grants from the
Barbour fund.
Friedman maintained, in sup-
porting his plan, that the Uni-
versity had as much a right to
refuse discriminatory grants as
did the donor to offer them.
He also pointed out that schol-
arships to aid foreign students
were based on a different concep-
tion than the racial or religious
grants which he said "violate the
philosophy of equality in a de-

the totals:

Strong Stuff
LONDON, Eng.-(P)-It takes
more than an atom bomb to
blast to ruin good British beer.
That's the word of a British
serviceman's group which left
1,500 cases of beer behind when
scientific authorities prepared
to explode an A-bomb in the
Monte Bello Islands off the
Australian coast. After the
blast authorities discovered
that nearly everything else had
been blown to pieces except 18,-
000 cans of beer which are now
being guzzled at a temporary
canteen set up on the island.
Writer Says
Be Defended-
"Europe is defensible" John
Scott, foreign correspondent for
Time Inc., claimed yesterday in a
talk at the Rackham amphithea-
The journalist came to this con-
clusion as a result of impressions
he gathered while in Europe for
nine weeks this summer. Scott
pointed out that although the
Russian divisions in Eastern Eu-
rope out number the Allied divi-
sions in Western Europe by a ra-
tio of three to two, "this ratio is
not sufficient to warrant aggres-
sion on either side."
SCOTT ADDED that in the next
years 31 more divisions area sup-
posed to be forthcoming from the
Western European na.tions. "If
these divisions are supplied," Scott
commented, "we will have achieved
parity with the Russians."
After talking with many Euro-
peans, Scott said he felt that
"narrow nationalism is being. re-
placed by a desire for pan-Euro-
peanism and that European unity
is not a hopeless cause."
When asked about neo-fascim
in Germany, Scott said that this
Is not real danger. "It is more the
attitude of the Americans rather
than the actual case," he added.
He explained that many mistake
German self-assertion for German
Predicting no war in the imme-
diate future, Scott concluded by
saying that the solution to the
world crisis lies in "a probable
historical osmosis" by which
parts of both the Soviet and West-
ern -system will be integrated.

Will Confer
AUGUSTA, Ga.-(A')-President-
elect Dwight D. Eisenhower and
Gov. Thomas E. Dewey of New
York will talk over the general's
forthcoming trip to Korea and
other policy matters ,at a confer-
ence here tomorrow.
And Eisenhower will hold an
important round of policy-making
meetings in New York next week
with other Republican leaders,
Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio,
chairman of the Senate GOP -pol-
icy committee, may sit in.
PLANS FOR the Eisenhower-
Dewey conference and the New
York sessions were announced at
the genleral's vacation headquar-
ters here yesterday by his press
secretary, James C. Hagerty.
Arrangements for the meeting
came against a background of
reports that Dewey will get a
cabinet post in the new GOP
administration. He has been
mentioned for Secretary of State
or Secretary of Defense.
Dewey said last week, however,
that he intends to serve out his
term as governor It runs for two
more years.
HAGERTY, who was secretary
to Dewey before joining the Eisen-
hower staff last July, said he had
no idea whether the General
would ask the Governor to join
his cabinet. Dewey, the GOP con-
tender for the presidency in 1944
and 1948, figured largely in Eisen-
hower's winning the nomination.
He went on to point out
that he had no information on
whether the General plans to
consult with John Foster Dulles,
Republican 'foreign policy ad-
viser, before going to Korea.
Hagerty repeated that no date
has been fixed yet for Eisenhower's
trip to Korea.
Dewey's scheduled, meeting with
the president-elect to discuss the
Korean trip, among other matters,
carne amid reports that Eisenhow-
er aides already have been in
touch with the Pentagon regard-
ing arrangements for the visit and
- more important - the military
situationkin Korea.
Hagerty declined to specify
what policy matters in addition
to the Korean trip will be on the
Eisenhower-Dewey agenda at Fri-
day's conference.
