Hatcher Claims University
HNot Harmed by Rose Bowl

I

CHICAGO-(IP)-An indirect de-
fense of the Rose Bowl football
game came from President Harlan
Hatcher yesterday. .
In a message to the University
Chicago Club last night, President
Hatcher declared:
"I can say that Michigan, as an
institution, has suffered no harm
whatsoever from its participation
in Rose Bowl games.
*, * * ~
MICHIGAN won two of the six
Rose Bowl games thus far played
between the Big Ten and Pacific
Coast Conference champions.
SPA Debates
Korean Peace
Plan Question
A panel of three students of-
fered varied views on the issue of
cease-fire in Korea at the meeting
of the Society for Peaceful Alter-
natives last night.
B. V. Govindaraj, Grad., a stu-
dent from India, defended the
plan recently offered by his coun-
try to the United Nations. "The
Indian plan extends the idea that
men of different religions and
ideologies can peacefully live to-
gether," he said.
GOVINDARAJ condemned both
the Soviet Union and the United
States "for playing power poli-
tics in Korea." "The Indian reso-
lution is not a compromise of
fundamentals but is intended to
satisfy both major countries," he
said.
Joe Savin, '53A, emphasized
that the UN forces could neither
withdraw or advance farther in-
to the China mainland. "The
only solution is to continue ne-
gotiations, however the United
States must be willing to com-
promise but not appease the
Communists," he said.
Explaining the views of both
countries on the issue of repatria-
tion of prisoners, Ivan Gluckman,
'53, said that a cease-fire agree-
ment should be made before the
truce negotiations continue.
"Neither of the major countries
want war," he said, "but any peace
contract must be backed by trust
and strength."
Before the discussion the groups
saw the technicolor film "No Place
to Hide." The film, distributed by
Encyclopedia Britannica, stressed
the horrors of the atomic bomb.
SQ Men To Hear
Public Health Talk

A mild rebuke of President
John Hannah of MichigansState
College, was seen in one remark
of President Hatcher's.
Hannah, whose Spartans are
rated the nation's No. 1 college
football team, has led an effort
at a college presidents' level to
abolish all bowl games. Hannah
recently predicted the Big Ten
would not renew the current Rose
Bowl pact which expires with the
1954 game.
President Hatcher said: "It
seems to me inappropriate to make
statements about the bowl game
while this contract is in force and
prior to the proper moment for
openmg discussions."
President Hatcher's message
here was read by faculty represen-
tative Prof. Ralph W. Aigler of
the Law School.
Eleven Hanged
In Czech Purge
VIENNA, Austria - (P) - Ru-
dolf Slansky, former Communist
boss of Czechoslovakia, and Vlado
Clementis, its former foreign
minister, were hanged in Prague
yesterday with nine other fallen
party leaders.
They were judged "Zionist,
Trotskyite" enemies of Stalinism.
The anti-Zionist attack prom-
ises now to spread to Romania and
other satellite nations, all ap-
parently ripe for major party
purges.
JGP Meeting
There will be a mass meeting
for all women in the junior
class at 7 p.m. today in Rm.

The various committees for
the Junior Girls' Play will be

The United Nations General As-

yesterday an Indian plan for
peace in Korea..
It was ordered dispatched speed-

with an appeal for their quick ac-
ceptance. They and Moscow have
already condemned the plan.

FIFTY-FOUR members of the
60-Nation Assembly voted on a
final roll call for the resolution
which reached the Assembly floor
after weeks of debate.
The five Soviet Bloc countries,
fighting bitterly to the end
against the solid Free World
front, cast the only negative
votes. Nationalist China ab-
stained on the grounds that the
resolution would not be effective.
Although the Communists al-
ready have rejected the resolution,
some UN leaders hoped for a
change of mind in Peiping and
Pyongyang. The action yesterday
closes the first chapter of the
Korean case in the seventh As-
sembly and there is expected to be
a lull now until the Communists
react.

THEY ARE ready to suspend ac-
tion until President-elect Dwight
D. Eisenhower takes office in
Washington Jan. 20 and sends a
new delegation to the Assembly
reopening in February.
Lester B. Pearson, Canadian
foreign secretary and president
of the Assembly, is expected to
rush the resolution to Peiping
and Pyongyang. The Assembly
asked him to report on their
reaction as soon as appropriate.
The resolution would establish a
four-country repatriation commis-
sion, made up of Poland, Czecho-
slovakia, Sweden and Switzerland.
This commission would handle
the repatriation of all prisoners
and the resolution states that force
will not be used to send the pris-
oners home or detain them. It
provides for an umpire to vote in
case of a deadlock by the commis-
sion.
Reds, Allies
Battle in Cold
SEOUL - (P) - Chinese Reds
clambered across the snow-cov-
ered slopes of Sniper Ridge today
and battled hand to hand with
South Korean defenders in near-
zero weather.
Front reports 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.
Temperatures on the mountain-
ous Central Front plunged to one
degree above zero just before dawn.

Taft-Hartley
Labor Law
WASHINGTON - () - Presi-
dent Truman yesterday invoked
the Taft-Hartley Labor Act, a law
he has often condemned, in an
effort to end a strike of 1,500 CIO
steel workers who make nickel
pipe essential to the atomic en-
ergy program.
The steel workers union was re-
ported determined to make a fight
in Federal Court over the question
whether the law can be used in
this case, which involves a single
plant of the American Locomotive
Company at Dunkirk, N.Y.
The President's action ap-
pointing a board of inquiry
paves the way for the attorney
general to ask a Federal Dis-
trict Court for an order halting
the strike for 80 days.
Failure to obey such an order
can bring heavy fines and other
penalties for contempt of court.
Truman has used the law 10
times since it became effective in
1947. The last time was more than
a year ago. Despite heavy criti-
cism from Congress, the President
refused to invoke the law in last
spring's steel strike.
Truman, Adlai
Discuss Plans
of Comeback:
WASHINGTON-(P)-President
Truman and Gov. Adlai Stevenson,
who succeeds him as titular head
of the defeated Democratic party,
got together yesterday and will
meet again today to talk over plans
for a party comeback.
The Illinois governor, beaten by
Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower
in the November presidential elec-
tion, will be a White House guest
through today.
Before flying in from Atlantic
City Stevenson yesterday led CIO
convention memorial services for
the late CIO president Philip Mur-
ray as a behind-scenes battle still
raged in the choosing of Murray's
successor.
Fisher Talks
To BEACON
The British Commonwealth is
no longer held together by the
King, but by three very significant
links to the United Kingdom, John
F. Fisher, British consul from
Detroit, said last night.
Speaking before the BEACON
association, Fischer said that ties
of family and tradition are per-
haps the strongest connection be-
tween the United Kingdom and
the territories.
Yet just as important a tie is the
mutual trade carried on between
these units Fisher said. A third tie
he mentioned was the advantage
of having over one fourth of the
world all using similar military
training, weapons and navies.

ancient Egyptian languages as a
coptic scholar. He was 73 years
old.

the faculty. He was one of our
most eminent scholars," comment-

the president, last night.

ulty of the University in 1908 as
an instructor in semitics. He

ledo, 0., in 1879 and attended the
Toledo High School. He was an
undergraduate at the University
and received3his bachelor of arts
degree in 1903. In 1909 he receiv-

President Truman yesterday

wage boost for John L. Lewis' 375,-

Gov. G. Mennen Williams' Elec-
tion Study Commission began this
week what commission member
Prof. Samuel Eldersveld of the
political science department term-
ed "a limitless job."
Prof. Eldersveld, who was ap-
pointed to the commission Nov.-22,
explained that the commission was
a mandate from the Governor to
study the entire election procedure

tational errors and unsatisfactory
conditions in which ballot boxes
are placed as examples of the
"faulty procedure."
"It is not so much that the
election laws are defective," he
claimed, "but that the admin-
istration of these laws is lax."
He also suggested that there is
some ambiguity in the election
laws-

the placing of state as well as
county canvassing boards on a
bi-partisan basis. The state
board is now all Republican.
Regarding the last suggestion,
Prof. Eldersveld commented that
"the requirements that boards be
bi-partisan is full of loopholes."
He said that bi-partisan boards do
not necessarily produce efficiency
or accuracy.
