Industry's
WSB Men
Quit in Row
Truman Coal
Decision Blasted
By the Associated Press
All seven industry members of
the Wage Stabilization Board
(WSB) .quit yesterday with a blast
at President Truman for what
they called the "perpetration of a
fraud upon the American people."
The row threatened to torpedo
the Government's whole wage con-
trol program.
* * *
THE INDUSTRY members, who
constitute one-third of the Wage
Board's makeup, said Truman'sI
approval of a $1.90 daily wage in-
crease for John L. Lewis' united
miners was a "special privilege"
extended to a few and made "sec-
ond class citizens of all others."
"As American citizens," they
said, "we cannot subscribe to the
theory that this sovereign gov-
ernment should sacrifice the
public interest to industrial hool-
iganism."
The Wage Board had voted to
hold the miners' pay increase to
$1.50 a day, on the ground that the
higher figure, to which the coal
operators had agreed, would "ir-
reparably" damage the entire an-
ti-inflation program.
TRUMAN overruled the board,
saying its action would lead to a
nationwide coal strike and con-
front the new Eisenhower admin-
istration with a national emer-
gency on its first day in office.
In a letter to the President,
the industry members said: "We
cannot escape the conclusion
that political expediency was a
factor in this action."
Asserting that the wage stabili-
zation program is now "nothing
but a sham and a mockery," the
letter added: "If your action means
that the small and the weak are
to be restricted by wage controls,
while the big and the powerful are
to be allowed whatever excessive
increases result from the threat of
a paralyzing strike, then there no
longer exists the equality with
which all law and all regulation
should be applied in a republic.
Meanwhile in Boston the eight
industry members of the New Eng-
land Regional Wage Stabilization
Board resigned yesterday in con-
cert with the industry members of
the national WSB.
They said in a statement that
they felt "the continuation of wage
stabilization controls under pres-
ent conditions would be meaning-
less."

Michigan Cagers
Down Pi*tt, 85-78
Wolverines Blow Early Lead, Then
Stage Rally in Final Quarter To Win
By DAVE LIVINGSTON
Wolverine cagers blistered the nets with -31 points in the final
period last night to erase an eight-point deficit and whip Pitts-
burgh, 85-78, before a cheering Yost Field House crowd of 3,200.
Forward John Codwell sparked Michigan's last quarter upsurge
with 14 markers, which played a big role in ruining Coach H. C.
Carlson's Panthers in their initial game of the season.

Korea nWar
End Asked
ByUN Chief
UNITED NATIONS, N. Y.-(P)
-The president of the 60-nation
UN General Assembly published
last night his personal appeal to
Red China's premier-foreign min-
ister Chou En-Lai to end the Kor-
ean fighting on terms of India's
peace plan.
The president, Canada's foreign
secretary Lester B. Pearson, sent
a similar message to North Korean
authorities. They were in cables
dispatched Friday, but not made
public until last night, transmit-
ting the Indian resolution to the
Communists. Fifty-four of the 60
nations endorsed the plan; Mos-
cow and company were opposed.
* * *
THE RED regimes have already
turned down the proposals, but
some sources, including India's
V. K. Kishna Menon, hoped Pear-
son's personal appeal plus his ex-
planations of what the plan ac-
tually does might open new ave-
nues of approach.
Pearson's 800-word appeal was
sent as U. S. President-elect Eis-
enhower was en route back to the
United States after his three-
day Inspection trip in Korea.
The Indian plan, approved Wed-
nesday, calls for no forced repatri-
ation of Chinese and North Korean
prisoners and no forced retention
of them.
It sets up a commission compos-
ed of Sweden, Switzerland, Polafid
Czechoslovakia to carry out re-
patriation and lays down that
POWs who refuse to return home
will be cared for by the UN. A
fifth nation would be named as
the commission's tie-breaking um-
pire.
Red China and North Korea
have demanded all war prisoners
be returned, whether or not they
want to go home.
"The India plan represents ideas
put forward by many governments
represented in the General As-
sembly whose unanimous desire is
to bring peace to Korea," Pearson
said in his message. "The resolu-
tion can make this desire effective
because its acceptance will make it
possible to achieve an armistice
and a complete and immediate
cessation of hostilities."

straight triumph for mentor Bill
Perigo.
With Michigan trailing 62-54
as the decisive fourth stanza
began, Codwell poured in a one-
hander and a free throw in the
first 30 seconds to narrow the
margin to five points and initi-
ate the Wolverine rally.

porary crimp in the Michigan out-'

SL Proposal
Discussed
At Meeting
"Mutnally satisfactory progress"
was the reported result of a dis-
cussion of Student Legislature's
proposal to end bannings of speak-
ers held yesterday by the Lecture
Committee and four student rep-
resentatives.
The Lecture Committee came to
no final decision on the SL pro-
posal, however. Debate of the issue
will continue at another meeting
sometime before Christmas, and
committee approval or disapproval
may be registered at that time.
* * *.
DISCUSSION of the SL plan to
institute post-judgment of speak-
ers under criteria listed in a Re-
gents' by-law hinged prominently
on the problem of administering
the proposal, according to SL pres-
ident Howard Willens, '53.
Willens and Phil Berry, Grad.,
are both regular non-voting stu-
dent representatives on the com-
mittee. Two other students,
Dave Brown, '53, and Ted Fried-
man, '53, joined the discussion
and will also sit in on the pre-
Christmas meeting.
Set up to eliminate pre-judg-
ment of speakers, the SL proposal
asks that recognized student or-
ganizations be allowed to sponsor
speakers of their choice on Uni-
versity property if they submit to
the Lecture Committee a signed
pledge that Regents' criteria will
not be violated.
The Lecture Committee was or-
iginally scheduled to rule yester-
day on a Young Progressives' peti-
tion to hear controversial author
Howard Fast. However, YP mem-
bers withdrew the petition Friday
prior to Fast's off-campus talk
yesterday afternoon.

Santlas Sacked
TOLEDO, O.-M'P-Five San-
ta Clauses-in full costume-
showed up in municipal court
yesterday, charged with solicit-
ing funds without a permit.
They are members of the
Volunteers of America. Police
arrested the Santas on the
complaint of the Salvation Ar-
my, which has licensed Santas
around Toledo.
Maj. J. L. Dignum of the
Volunteers said the ordinance
requiring permits "puts us in a
class with beggars" and declin-
ed to make out application pa-
pers for the Santas.
The Santas promised not to
solicit over the weekend. Their
case will be heard tomorrow.

Fast Says
Government
R uins B.ooks
By DIANE DECKER
"Literature is dying in the Unit-
ed States because it cannot thrive
under the prevailing police state,"
author Howard Fast said yester-
day.
The controversial figure main-
tained that the contemporary
American scene is one where "evil
and conscienceless men have seiz-
ed control of the means of produc-
tion and are making unprecedent-
ed profits through war."
APPROXIMATELY 60 students
gathered in the Unitarian Church
to hear the off-campus address.
Conforming with regulations laid
down by Unitarian Minister Ed-
ward H. Redman, the sponsoring
students checked each member of
the audience at the door against
a guest list drawn up in advance.
Blasting national lethargy to-
ward the present state of affairs,
Fast commented, "During the
Hitler regime, we in America felt
a sense of shock when almost
100 professors were expelled
from German universities and
when books were burned. Since
1948, more than 300 professors.
have been removed from our uni-
versities under the same condi-
tions, the same bonfires have
burned, but there is no wave of
protest."
Fast commended the Congress
of Vienna, which meets Dec. 12, as
the "greatest grouping of peace
seekers the world has ever wit-
nessed." The author was a repre-

their NCAA crown. For the har-
rassed St. Lawrence sextet, it was
their third straight loss.
* * *
THE LARRIES had previously
dropped an encounter to McGill
4-0 and were beaten by Michigan
State, 3-2. Coach Vic Heyliger's
squad powered its way to a 5-0
lead in the first two periods and
started to coast in the third.
Then, after St. Lawrence
broke goalie Willard Ikola's
shutout bid as Chet Stefanowicz
scored on Neale Langill's pass
at 2:03 of the final period, the
roof caved in. A tie-up on the
right boards in the Saints defen-
sive zone turned into a free-for-
all.
After the altercation sinimered
down, Alex McClellan and Telly
Mascarin of the Wolverines, as
well as Wally Behan and Charles
Lundberg, St. Lawrence defense-
men were sent to the showers.

By the Associated Press
Six Labor and Nationalist lead-
ers were thrown into an intern-t
ment camp yesterday as an after-
math of the assassination of Far-
hat Hached, Secretary General of1
the Tunisian Labor Federation.r
French authorities said the
group was picked up to forestall
a general outbreak of violence.
ONE OF THOSE arrested was
Mohamed Messadi, successor to
Hached in the top Labor position.
A three-day general strike
called by the Federation was
effective in parts of this troub-
led French North African Pro-
tectorate. Various reports of
violence, which caused the death
of at least two persons, were re-
ceived from throughout the1
country.
Meanwhile at the United Nations1
the Western Big Three yesterday
gave the hands-off treatment in
widely different ways to the ex-
plosive question of Tunisian in-
dependence from France.
Britain's Selwyn Lloyd, Min-
ister of State in Prime Minister
Churchill's cabinet, told the 60-
nation political committee it had
no right to discuss the issue. He
called it one of French domestic,
not international, concern and said
for this reason Britain would not
comment on rights and wrongs in-
volved in Tunisia.

'BLUES' REBORN:
Eleven Year Old Daily
Reflects Innocent' U.S.
By MARK READER
Only 11 shopping days were left before Christmas.
Humphrey Bogart was chasing after the "Maltese Falcon" at the
old Majestic Theatre and the whine of the "Birth of the Blues" cap-
tured the imaginations of Ann Arbor movie-goers.
SOMEONE LIVING out on Church Road was selling some spaniel
puppies to anyone who was interested and a local laundry offered to
carefully darn student's socks at a low price.
James P. McGranery, U. S. Representative, said that he in-
tended to ask Attorney General Francis Biddle to investigate the
position of Mike Jacobs, New York boxing promoter.
The Wolverine hockey team was trounced by London, a Canadian
sextet, by the score of 6-1.
Professor Theodore M. Newcomb of the sociology department,
after an exhaustive 4 year research study announced that "there
is only a slight increase in liberalism" in the attitude of students
between entrance into college and final graduation.

Conference, which is sponsoring
the Congress of Vienna.
MAINTAINING that the Rus-
sian government is actually seek-
ing peace while the United States
wants only war and war profits,
he called America, "the only coun-
try in the world surrounded by an
iron curtain." He particularly crit-
icized the government for refus-
ing to grant certain foreign trav-
elling privileges.
The author is confined to this
country, under penalty of five
year imprisonment for crossing
a border, since serving a jail
term in 1947. At that time, Fast
was one of 11 members of the
Joint Anti-Fascist Refugee Com-
mittee convicted for contempt of
Congress.
Fast, who is on the board of
directors of the Daily Worker, na-
tional Communist organ, told of
recently completed construction on
a "concentration camp" at Allen-
town, Pa.-which he said was
"America's fifth and largest."

State Recount
To BeMonday
LANSING, Mich. - (P) - Mich-
igan went ahead yesterday with
plans to begin a recount of its
governor's election results tomor-
row even while a multi-sided argu-
ment went on over the question of
whether the Senate results should
be rechecked at the same time.
Election officials, whose original
tally showed Democratic Governor
G. Mennen Williams a winner by
some 8,618 votes over his Republi-
can challenger, Fred M. Alger, Jr.,
were set to begin the recount in
Wayne and 13 other counties to-
morrow. The rest of the state's
83 counties will have their retabu-
lations underway by Dec. 15.
Any one's guess was as good as
the next fellow's insofar as the
status of a possible recount in the
Blair Moody-Charles E. Potter
Senate race was concerned. Potter
had a 46,000 margin in that one
in the November balloting.

The quartet drew match miscon-
duct penalties along with their
five-minute fighting fouls.

By the Associated Press
Sunday, Dec. 7-The cruiser
Helen a, with President-elect
Dwight D. Eisenhower aboard,
steamed through boiling seas to-
night for a rendezvous with Secre-
tary of State-designate John Fo-
ter Dulles at Wake Island tomor-
row.
Eisenhower and Dulles will hold
a series of conferences aboard the
Helena to mold the new admin-
istration's policy toward Korea
and the entire Far East.
THE HELENA is returningEi-
senhower from a history-making.
three-day visit to Korea which
fulfilled the general's campaign
promise to investigate the war first
hand in an effort to find a new
approach to an honorable peace.
Dulles will fly to Wake Island
from the United States, and will
be transferred to the Helena by
helicopter. Others who will be
close to Eisenhower in the new
administration will accompany
Dulles, but it has not yet been
disclosed aboard ship who they
will be.
He will com fresh from a series
of meetings with U.S. Secretary
of State Acheson and other top
State Department officials, said
Presidential press secietary James
C. Hagerty.
MEANWHILE, in Seoul, Presi-
dent Syngman Rhee said he urged
Eisenhower to find a solution to
Korea because "our people have
become impatient."
The Republic of Korea Presi-
dent declared he expects Eisen-
hower "will do what he can to
break the Korean stalemate at
the earliest possible time."
Rhee emphasized, however, that
Eisenhower made no commitments
at their conferences during Eisen-
hower's unprecedented, three-day
visit to this war-torn land.
And as Eisenhower's plane was
leaving Korea Friday night, the
Red air force let loose with its
heaviest night attack of the war.
The U.S. Fifth Air Force said
last night the raiders were re-
pulsed by Allied night fighters and
blistering anti-aircraft fire, al-
though some Communist bombs
were dropped near an air base.

In Collections
Netting over a thousand dollars
mnore than ever before, the Galens
yesterday wound up their twenty-

Ann Arborites contributed 20
per cent more than last year's pre-
vious record of $5,600, according
to Walter Kirsten, '53, director of
the medical honorary's drive.
"We are extremely delighted
that the contributors were so gen-

contributed and participated in
the drive and a special thanks to
Dean Waltr B. Rea for all his
help," he added.
Proceeds from the drive main-

The conference work is planned
