Investigation
j Of Elections
To Continue
Irregularities
Charges Heard
By the Associated Press
The Senate elections subcommit-
tee expects to decide today its next
step in an investigation of charges
of irregularities in the Michigan
senatorial election, Chairman Hen-
nings (D-Mo) said yesterday.
Hennings told reporters after an
all day closed hearing that the
subcommittee "heard the argu-
ments on the controversy" but had
come to no decision.
* * *
TWO DEFEATED legislative
candidates petitioned the House of
Representatives yesterday for re-
counts of the Nov. 4 election re-
sults in their districts, the second
1 and seventh Wayne County dis-
tricts.
The petitions were filed by
Joseph I. Jackson, Highland
Park Democrat, and Raymond
T. Doherty, Garden City Demo-
crat.
R. Stanton Kilpatrick, Grand
Rapids city clerk, recommended
to Gov. G. Mennen Williams' elec-
tion study commission yesterday
that Michigan stop using separate
ballots for presidential and state
candidates.
O ther changes recommended by
Kilpatrick included:
* *
COMPLETE elimination of all
local special election questions
from the presidental balloting.
Protecting the franchise rights
of a registered elector who moves
into another governmental unit
in the last 30 days before an
election.
Establishment of firm qualifica-
tion standards for all precinct
chairman, inspectors and clerks.
Provision for counting absentee
ballots separately, crediting them
to the residence precinct or add-
ing them to the over-all total.
Clarifying the standards for
challengers, particularly as to resi-
dence and proper identification.
Meanwhile, a campaign financial
statement by Charles E. Potter,
Republican, on file with the Che-
boygan County Clerk yesterday
left untold the total amount spent
in his campaign for U. S. senator.
Vulcans Plan
Low Vacation
Travel Rates
Special reduced rate railroad
transportation for students home-
ward bound for Christmas vaca-
tion will be provided by Vulcans,
engineering honorary.
Students traveling on the all-
student reserved seat cars will save
16 to 17 per cent on regular round
trip rates, according to John
Knudsen, '53E, advertising man-
ager for the Vulcan project.
More than 400 students took ad-
vantage of the fare saving last
year and Knudsen expects about
the same number this year. Special
fares are offered to New York, Al-
bany, Boston, Rochester, Buffalo
and Chicago.
Knudsen pointed out that stu-
dents traveling through any of
these cities could take advantage
of the holiday saving to get to the
city and then continue their trip
at regular fare. He added that stu-

dents could return to Ann Arbor
on any train with their tickets.
The Vulcans will use the profits
from their low rate venture to pro-
vide funds for various worthwhile
campus needs, Knudsen said.
Knudsen suggested interested
students call Gordon Carpenter,
'53E, 24481, for further informa-
tion on the bargain rates.
Generation Sale
Begins Tomorrow
Generation, the campus inter-
arts magazine will go on sale to-
morrow for $.35.
Printed in magazine form for
the first time this semester, the is-
sue will include poetry, short
stories, essays, music and art.
Also included will be answers to a

Reuther Certain
Of GIO Posi tion
Leaders Work To Heal Presidency
Rift with Opposing Haywood Group
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J.-( P)-The CIO worked yesterday to re-
pair a deep rift in its ranks over choosing a new CIO president, a scrap
not yet over but apparently won by 45-year-old Walter Reuther.
The dynamic, red-haired Reuther, president of the big CIO auto
workers union, was widely conceded as having whipped together.
enough votes to get the CIO presidency in any convention showdown.
TOP OFFICIALS were trying to get forces backing CIO Executive
Vice President Allan S. Haywood, a 64-year-old veteran union leader

UNITED NATIONS, N.Y.-The
Western bloc yesterday soundly
beat down Russia's stubborn drive
in the U.N. Political Committee
for an immediateiKorean cease-
fire, with negotiations to come
later.
The committee, virtually ex-
hausted after more than a month's
argument, then suspended all talk
on Korea until it hears Commu-
nist reaction to an Indian peace
plan it approved Monday.
WASHINGTON - Congressmen
hunting a way to bring some or-
der into the chaos of political
campaign spending heard a sur-
prise suggestion yesterday for a
curb on the amount of editorial
space a newspaper may use to
back a candidate.
That proposal, from Rep. Hoff-
man (R-Mich), was in sharp con-
trast to go-slow advice offered by
Chairman Arthur E. Summerfield
of the Republican National Com-
mittee.
NEW YORK-Joseph D. Nu-

Pollock To Appear
Before Committee
Prof. James K. Pollock, chair-
man of the political science de-
partment, is in Washington today
to testify before the House of Rep-
resentatives Sub-Committee on
campaign expenditures, it was
learned yesterday.
Prof. Pollock, who has done re-
search on the problem for 30
years, will present a general out-
line of recommendations to the
committee.

But Haywood and his chief
supporter, David J. McDonald,
president of the big CIO steel-
workers union, were still pledg-
ing a finish fight that could
spill over on the convention
floor. Selection of officers is due
tomorrow.
The Haywood group was con-
sidering forcing a test on a pro-
posal to change the CIO Consti-
tution so as to require the CIO
presidency to be a full time job.
Approval of such a plan would
mean Reuther couldn't fill the job
as long as he retained the presi-
dency of the auto workers.
But it Vas not expected any
such plan would get the con-
vention's approval since Reu-
ther appeared to have a clear
voting majority on his side.
CIO officers sent a message
yesterday congratulating Martin P.
Durkin, president of the AFL
Plumbers Union, upon his selection
by President-elect Eisenhower to
be secretary of labor. The CIO
was obviously pleased that a man
from labor's ranks had been se-
lected, even though he came from
the rival AFL.
String Quartet

Final Concert
The Stanley String Quartet will
be heard in its second and final

ture Hall.
The program for the concert
will include the Quartet in G ma-
jor, Op. 77, No. 1 by Haydn; Quar-
tet in F major, Op. 135 by Bee-

Coolidge Foundation. On this oc-
casion they will give the first
Washington performance of the
String Quartet No. 6 by Ross Lee
Finney, composer in residence at
the University.

SAC Grants
Second YP
Tentative OK
Settlement Seen
Speaker Issue
By CRAWFORD YOUNG
Daily Managing Editor
The Young Progressives again
won tentative clearance from the
Student Affairs Committee yeste-
day on the question of the group's
"responsibility."
However,da sub-committee was
set up to draw up a list of re-
quirements for tightening of in-
ternal YP procedure. These will
be considered at next Tuesday's
SAC meeting.
MEANWHILE, the issue of the
'two pending YP speakers peti-
tions appeared on the road to set-
tlement. Requests for author
Howard Fast and Rabbi Abraham
Cronbach of Cincinnati are cur-
rently on the Lecture Committee
docket.
However, no meeting could be
arranged before Saturday by
Prof. James K. Pollock, Lecture
Committee chairman. Rabbi
Cronbach had been scheduled
to speak tomorrow, with
the Fast appearance tentative-
ly slated for Saturday.
A way out of the dilemma was
suggested by the Lecture Com-
mittee delineation of "public" and
"private" meetings Monday. Marge
Buckley, '53, YP chairman, indi-
cated that tomorrow's meeting
will be made "private," i.e., lim-
ited solely to membership, in order
that Rabbi Craonbach could ap-
pear without Lecture Committee
sanction.
As for the Fast address on
"The Historical Novel" planned
for Saturday, Miss Buckley said
that it would probably be post-
poned indefinitely.
The speech had originally been
planned for March or April, and
had been moved up when it was
discovered that Fast already had
planned a Detroit appearance this
weekend.
IT WAS reported that the Lec-
ture Committee will discuss on
Saturday the Student Legislature
recommendation for investing the
sponsoring student organization
with the responsibility for seeing
that the Regents By-Law on cam-
pus speeches was obeyed.
The SAC deliberations on the
YP question centered around the
issue of whether the committee
should attempt to evaluate moti-
vation, or should continue to base

Let It Snow
Michigan skidded out of its
first general snowfall Tuesday,
and according to the weather
bureau, can expect more snow
tonight.
Michigan's slippery roads
have already caused one death
-the driver of a light pickup
truck which skidded and struck
an oil truck. The slippery coat-
ing on streets and roads has
put the brakes on travel and
resulted in a rash of motor
vehicle accidents everywhere.
Many airline flights from New
York City were canceled.
A colder than normal De-
cember is in sight for most of
the country, according to the
weather bureau.
Government
Red Probe
Increased
By the Associated Press
The government moved on sev-
eral fronts Tuesday against sus-
pected Communists or persons who
have been accused of Red sym-
pathies.
In New York,. a federal grand
jury warned the American people
that "an overwhelmingly large
group of disloyal United States
citizens" has seeped into the Unit-
ed Nations.
The jurors urged that when
their term of service ends another
grand jury be impaneled to carry
on their investigation of alleged
subversion and espionage.

munist party.

nounced in Washington there

Reds Assault
ROK Troops
SEOUL - to) - Chinese Reds
clambered across the snow-cov-
ered slopes of Snipers Ridgeto-
day and battled hand to hand
with South Korean defenders in
near-zero weather.
ronthreports said the Chinese
made their strongest thrust in
three weeks during the predawn
darkness but were forced to with-
draw after 90 minutes of close-
quarter fighting. Just before the
assault, Chinese guns raked the
crest of Pinpoint Hill, highest peak
on Sniper.
Allied guns aided in chopping up
the assault.

Speech Department Bill

Police Warn
Fraternities
Of New Thefts
A warning to fraternity men to
keep their billfolds locked up or
hidden during the evening was is-
sued by the Detective Bureau of
the Police Department yesterday
following the robbery of Phi Kap-
pa Tau fraternity early Monday
morning.
Approximately $180 was taken
from the fraternity by the thief
who apparently entered through a
window. Drawers and trouser
pockets were gone through for
money by the thief who took only
bills and left loose change.
THE LATEST robbery brings
the total of money stolen from
campus housing units this semes-
ter to $573. On Saturday morning
Sept. 27 $338 was stolen from Phi
Gamma Delta, Chi Phi and The-
ta Chi fraternities.
On Homecoming weekend
Martha Cook and Phi Tau were
robbed of $70 and $85 respec-
tively. The Martha Cook theft
took place on Saturday after-
noon Oct. 25, while dinner was
being served. Two men were
reported seen by residents of
the dormitory in a room and on
a stairway but both fled.
During the robbery of the The-
ta Chi house a stranger was seen
by a fraternity member in the
house but identification of the
man could not be made.
SD A Plan Cloture

Student Legislature president
Howard Willens, '53, seemed vir-
tually assured of another term of
office as legislators prepared to se-
lect a new slate of officers in the
semi-annual Cabinet elections to-
night.
WEQN Show
Draws Fire
A move to limit the broadcast-
ing activities of Bob Perry, '53E,
over the campus broadcasting
system fell through last night.
Initiatedby Stan Levy, '55, sta-
tion manager of WEQN, from
which Perry's program originates,
the action was considered after a
number of quad complaints over
the accuracy of Perry's statements
in recent broadcasts.
The move would have limited the
broadcaster to a 15-minute discus-
sion of Student Legislature acti-
vities rather than the half-hour
commentary on all campus events
which he features now.
Levy said last night that he had
asked Perry to be prepared to back
up his assertions with concrete
evidence in the future. The sta-
tion manager' withdrew his earlier,
more drastic request after talking
with Perry, who would not accept
the first proposal.
Perry will broadcast his regular
show at 7 p.m. today and will con-
centrate mostly on what he terms
an "expose" of quad government.
Presumably the show will be car-
ried on all three quad stations, al-
though the South and West Quads
could cut off the broadcast if they.
preferred to run other material.

Willens has no known opposi-
tion and it appears unlikely that
any will turn up before the elec-
tions get under way at 7:30 p.m.
in the Strauss dining room of East
Quadrangle.
THE vice-presidential race will
probably result in a victory for
present SL treasurer Bob Neary,
'54. Neary appears to have a clear
field as no other candidates have
announced themselves thus far.
However, the treasurer's post
which Neary vacates may be
contested by three candidates.
Definitely seekingthe position
are Bob Ely, '54E, presently
chairman of the Campus Action
Committee, and Fred Hicks, '54.
In the dark horse class is NSA
coordinator John Baity, '55, who
may try either for the treasurer's
slot or a position as a" member-
at-large.
At the moment two candidates
are definitely trying for the two
member-at-large posts, but can-
didates who lose out in the treas-
urer's race could be expected to
enter at the last minute. Floor
nominations for any of these posts1
are always a probability.
The two certain candidates
areSue Popkin, '54, who now is
recording secretary, and Lee'
Fiber, '54, who currently serves
as Public Relations Committee
head.
A corresponding secretary and
recording secretary will also be
chosen by SL members. Shirley
Cox, '54, and Jean Jones, '53,
chairman of the Culture and Edu-
cation Committee, are listed as
contenders for the corresponding
secretary's job, while Janet Net-
zer, '54, is a possible candidate
for recording secretary.

Appointment
of Durkin
Starts Furor
Rival Republican
Wings Could Split
WASHINGTON - P) - Sen.
Robert A. Taft, in an explosive
protest which could foreshadow
a great legislative struggle be-
tween two wings of the GOP, yes-
terday labelled President-elect Ei-
senhower's choice of a Secretary
of Labor as "incredible."
The Ohio senator's blast over
the selection of Martin P. Durkin
shattered the outward show of
harmony which prevailed during
the election campaign between Ei-
senhower and the man he beat out
for the Republican nomination.
* * *
IN A STATEMENT from Cin-
cinnati Taft described Durkin, 58-
year-old head of the AFL plumb-
ers' union, as a "partisan Truman
Democrat." He said the selection
was an "affront" to labor voters
who backed the GOP ticket, and
also to Democrats who jumped
party lines.
And he brought the matter
down to more immediate politi-
cal cases by asserting that Her-
bert Brownell has been "the key
man in Cabinet appointments.
Brownell, picked by Eisenhower
to be attorney general, has been
closely associated with the Repub-
lican group around Gov. Thomas
E. Dewey and was Dewey's cam-
paign manager in 1948 when the
New Yorker defeated Taft for the
nomination. Taft's implication was
that the Dewey wing has taken
over patronage and perhaps a
commanding position on policy is-
sues.
Taft said "It was never sug-
gested that a man would be ap-
pointed who has always been a
partisan Truman Democrat, who
fought Gen. Eisenhower's election,
and advocated the repeal of the
Taft-Hartley Law."
He disclaimed any reflection
on the "character or ability" of
Durkin himself.
Durkin makes no bones about
wanting more revision of the T-H
law than Taft is likely tohaccept
willingly, and he already has sug-
gested new powers for the Labor
Department that Taft may not
want in the hands of a man whose
selection he has criticized so
roundly.
CLC To Plan
Debate Series
With Faculty
The Civil Liberties Committee
last night started plans for a stu-
dent-faculty discussion series on
local civil liberties issues.
Stressing the campus aspect of
the proposed discussions, CLC
members hoped to pattern the
series along lines of the Literary
College Steering Committee which
invites faculty members and in-
terested students to their meet-
ings to lecture and lead discus-
sions.
The project will be a long
range affair, extending into next
semester. Discussions planned
by the group will be publicized

in advance.
National director of the Amer-
ican Civil Liberties Union Patrick
Malin, suggested such an educa-
tional program during his recent
visit to campus. Club members
felt the plan would help eliminate
much of the apathy on campus to
civil liberties.
The scheduled election of a new
member-at-large to replace Alice
Bogdonoff, '54, was postponed till
the general elections at its next
meeting.
