ate committee bluntly told the
Michigan Board of Canvassers
last night that "our request is1

That reply was sent after the
board refused the committee's re-
quest for a recount on the grounds
it had no authority under Michi-
gan law to make the tally.
The committee had asked that
the Senate ballots be recounted at

the subcommittee noted it was in-

"It appears to use that your

Three Day
Secret Visit
General Confers
With Army Men
By The Associated Press
President-elect Dwight D. Eis-
enhower completed his three-day
search for a "positive and definite"
victory formula in war-ravaged
Korea Friday night and flew to-
day to balmy Guam, where he
boarded the heavy cruiser Helena
for a six-day trip to Hawaii.
On his leisurely homeward jour-
ney, Eisenhower was expected to
devote most of his time to work-
ing on reports and data gathered
during his Korean mission.
EISENHOWER left the frozen
Korean war zone Friday'night and
arrived in Guam eight hours and
30 minutes later. It was just be-
fore dawn when his Constellation'.

The general went directly
from the airport to the cruiser.
Members of Eisenhower's staff
were expected to join him at- is-

Eisenhower's plane carried an
aircraft commander, two top-flight
pilots and two crews for the flight
to Korea.
Eisenhower's secret journey be-
gan last Saturday at 5:30 a.m.
when he left his New York home
.to go to Mitchell Field. There two
air force constellations waited in
the darkness to take the General
to San Francisco.
WHILE IN Korea the President-
elect made a tour of combat units.
He was shocked at the conditions
under which the South Koreans
are fighting.
Eisenhower also met South
Korean president, Syngman
Rhee who presented the General
with a big silk Republic of Korea
Notes were exchanged in Seoul
between Eisenhower and Rhee af-
ter a farewell visit Friday. The
contents of the Rhee letter will
not be revealed, a spokesman said.
However, government sources
believed Rhee reiterated his re-
quest that the United Nations uni-
fy all of Korea, strengthen Korean
forces, drive the Chinese Commun-
ists out of Korea, and disband the
North Korean Army. There was
also thought to be a request for
more economic aid.
On at least one of these points,.
Eisenhower had made his position
known. Publicly he gave assur-
ances that the Korean Army will
be made "a lot bigger and better."
