Pact Nations
Revise Atom
Bomb Plans
New Naval Set-up
To Be Organized
PARIS-()-The military lead-
ers of the Atlantic Alliance said
last night they had agreed upon
the use of atomic weapons in a
revised strategic plan for the de-
fense of Europe.
The plan also included:
The possible use of West Ger-
man and Yugoslav armed forces.
A new Naval command in the
Mediterranean.
GEN. CHARLES Foulkes of Can-
ada, chairman of the military
committee of the 14-nation North
'Atlantic Treaty Organization,
made these points at a news con-
ference.
He said the military chiefs al-
so had agreed on the commander
for the new Mediterranean set-
up, after a two-year deadlock
between Britain and the United
States, but refused to give his
name.
Highly placed NATO sources
said Adm. Lord Mountbatten,
commander of Britain's Mediter-
ranean Fleet, is slated for the job.
In disclosing that atomic wea-
pons now figure in the Allies'
new strategichplans, Foulkes
pointed out that the United
States is required by law to with-
hold from other nations its in-
formation on atomic develop-
ments.
But this "does not interfere with
* making military plans," he said.
Consideration of the use of
West German and Yugoslav armed
forces apparently is in the same
pattern. Yugoslavia has no formal
alliance with the Western nations,'
and West Germany's manpower
has not yet been committed by
ratification of the six-nation Eur-
opean Army Pact.
Security Plan
For UN Cited
As Inadequate'
UNITED NATIONS, N. Y.-(P)
-Sen. Alexander Wiley, (R-Wis.)1
charged last night that the sys-
tem worked out by the State De-
partment and the United Nations
for running down subversives in
the UN is "hopelessly inadequate."
He said the next Congress will
consider barring funds for the
UN and its agencies unless ef-
fective security is established
quickly.
Wiley issued a statement as a
senator and not as a UN dele-
gate. At the same time the UN
disclosed Secretary General Try-r
gve Lie has fired Irving Schil-
ler, an American archivist em-
ployed at the UN office in Ge-t
neva.P
State Department officials Wed-(
nesday told the McCarran sub-v
committee investigating subver-
sives in the UN, that 12 out ofc
40 Americans judged to be badc
security risks by the departmentt
were still in the UN payroll. t
They also told of a confidentialt
arrangement worked out by the c
department and Lie in 1949 fort
the ouster of American Commun-c
ists or potential Communists from
the UN.

Unheralded Vigil

NEWS DISPATCHES from the
relatively quiet Korean war,
represented by this lone soldier
standing guard at an airstrip near
Seoul, appear to arouse little in-
test in The Daily's 14,000 readers.
In an attempt to find out if
anyone reads stories on the war,
The Daily ran the same Korean
dispatches on the front page two
days in a row - three different
times-Dec. 3 and 4, 5 and 6, and

9 and 10. The total response to the
"mistake": one letter to the edi-
tor, and a complaint from a Daily
photographer who wasn't aware
of the experiment.
A similar test, conducted last
month by the Vancouver, B.C.
Sun, produced nearly the same re-
sults. After running the same ar-
ticle three days in a row, the Sun
reported that not one of its 500,-
000 readers had phoned to check
the error.

Dulles Says U.S. Needs
New Faith in Freedom'

v

DENVER - (/P) - John Foster
Dulles said last night that some-
thing has "gone wrong" with
American environment, and he
urged a rekindled "faith in free-.
dom" to shatter "the hypnotic
spell of tyranny around the world."
- The incoming secretary of state
said that "our people are not im-
bued with the righteous and dy-
namic .faith which gives them a
sense of mission and purpose," and
he said "the essential need is to
recreate that."
* * *.
WHEN IT IS done, he added,
"the edifice of despotism will sur-
ely crumble, because free men will
have broken the hypnotic spell by
which the despots hold their
masses."

Legal Tangle
Arises over
500 Ballots
Counity Dispute
Favorsi Alger
By ERIC VETTER
A legal tangle over the validity
of between four and five hundred
ballots gives Fred M. Alger a
chance to gain about 150 votes on
Gov. Williams in Washtenaw
County.
The situation arose when 'im-
proper initialing and wrapping of
ballots by inspectors in Ypsilanti
Township precincts three and five
was discovered during the recount
going on in the County Court-
house.
COUNTY CANVASSER Board
Chairman Hugh E. Wilson said
his five man group would attempt
to make a ruling on the problem
today. Fdur inspectors and County
Clerk Luella M. Smith will be call-
ed in by the board this morning to
try and clear up the matter.
A wire from D. Hale Brake of
the State Board of Canvassers
in Lansiug yesterday instructed
the board to validate the ballots
if it can be shown the inspectors
had taken the official oath of
office.
Mrs. Smith said apparently the
inspectors were sworn in but had
not signed the poll book. Wilson
stated that his board "will prob-
ably be forced to make a ruling if
the case shows the inspectors were
not legally registered because Lan-
sing has said nothing on the mat-

REPUBLICAN County Chairman
George Weins, estimated that Wil-
liams faces a loss of over 200 votes
in Ypsilanti precinct five and Al-
ger nearly 70 in precinct three.
While this controversy went on,
the regular recount continued in
the Board of Supervisors room in
the Courthouse. Williams added 13
votes to his county total by val-
idation of ballots in stronger Alger
precincts.
" s
Recount Will
'Positively' Go
O'n, Alger Says
By the Associated Press
Resisting growing pressure from
the ranks of his own Republican
party to admit defeat, Fred M.
Alger, Jr., said yesterday that the
governorship recount would "pos-
itively and absolutely" continue
into next week.
The tally in 684 precincts from
47 counties gave Democratic Gov.
Williams a net gain of 547 votes.
The recounting had been complet-
ed by 12 of the smaller counties.
WILLIAMS started out with a1
lead of 8,618 votes out of the more
than 2,800,000 cast. At this point
in the Alger-instigated recount,
Williams' lead had grown to 9,165
and was .steadily climbing.
Williams gained a total of 681
vites in 569 precincts. Alger
gained 134 votes in 115 Wayne
county precincts.
Alger said that reports are
"spreading all over the state that1
the recount is aboutto be dropped,
and our challengers, in some cases,

are adopting a 'what's-the-use'
attitude."
"I want to say just as definitely
as I can that it is not true. We
will proceed at least until there
has been a recount in half of the
precincts we listed in our recount
application."

Dulles, in a tape-recorded ad-
dress, his first major speech
since he was named secretary of
state, told the General Assembly
of the National Council of
Churches of Christ in the USA:

Reply
LONDON-(P)-"Wrong ad-
dress" is Russia's answer to
the American note to Moscow
demanding return of the car-
go plane forced down in Hun-
gary 13 months ago.
The Moscow radio last night
said Soviet Deputy Foreign
Minister Jacob A. Malik re-
ceived the note Wednesday
from United States Charge
d'Affaires Elim O'Shaughnessy
and returned it to the American
diplomat with a memo saying
it was "wrongly addressed since
it deals with an American C47
transport aircraft which in No-
vember, 1951 violated the fron-
tiers of the Hungarian Peoples'
Republic."
Ike To End
Policy Talks
In Hawaii
HONOLULU -(j)-- President-
elect Dwight D. Eisenhower came
from the frozen desolation of the
Korean War into the brilliant
beauty of Hawaii yesterday where
he will conclude top level policy
talks before returning to New
York Sunday.
He stepped from the cruiser
Helena at Pearl Harbor and with
close advisers rode through Hono-
lulu for an ovation from cheering
crowds along the parade route es-
timated by Naval authorities at
100,000.
THE ARRIVAL ended nine fate-
ful days in the making of future
American history-three of them
spent in studying the Korean sit-
uation and the rest in conferences
with future Cabinet members
which fixed the broad outlines of:
Far East policy for the new Re-
publican administration.
Eisenhower told Maj. Gen
Roger Ramey, Air Force direc-
tor of operations, that he want-
ed to leave Hawaii at noon to-
morrow. That would put him
into New York about noon Sun-
day.
James C. Hagerty, Eisenhower's
press secretary, said the President-
elect would have nothing to say
in reply to President Truman.
Truman told a news conference
yesterday Eisenhower's campaign
promise to go to Korea was dema-
goguery.
Hagerty said Eisenhower, who
is known to be pleased with the1
results of the tour, would make1
his first public statement on his
Korean trip when he lands at
Travis Field, Calif.
* * *
WHILE the President seemed to
think little of' Eisenhower's trip,
John Foster Dulles, the next sec-
retary of state, has told reporters
it was invaluable and that policy
conferences aboard the Helena
will pay dividends to the Ameri-
can people for years to come.
Eisenhower will continue talks
here with Dulles, Douglas Mc-
Kay, his secretary of the in-
terior, and Adm. Arthur Rad-
ford, commander of the Pacific
Fleet.
The remainder of the party left
for the mainland later yesterday.
In this group are Secretary ofi
Defense-designate Charles E. Wil-
son, Gen. Omar N. Bradley, chair-:
man of the Joint Chiefs of Staff;,
George M. Murphey, the next sec-i
retary of the treasury; Herbert
Brownell, the next attorney gen-j
eral; Gen. Lucius Clay, a close1
adviser to Eisenhower; and Maj.I

Gen. Wilton B. Persons, who willI
be a White House assistant.
The Helena slipped into Pearl
Harbor in brilliant sunshine and
eased to the dock yesterday morn- ,
ing. Eisenhower stood' on the deck
waving to the crowds on the pier,
who shouted greetings.

Of MacArthur's Plan

'Will Prevent
Meeting of
Ike, General.
President Says
Confab Useless
WASHINGTON - (P) - Presi-
dent Truman yesterday denounced
President-elect Dwight D. Eisen-
hower's trip to Korea as a piece
of demagoguery and said he doubts
that Gen. Douglas MacArthur has
any new solution to end the Kor-
ean war.
Virtually slamming the door on
proposals for a White House meet-
ing with Eisenhower and Mac-
Arthur, the President told his news
conference he believes such a con-
ference would serve no useful
purpose.
* * *
THE PROPOSALS had been
made by members of Congress.
Truman said that as a matter of
courtesy he would be glad to see
Eisenhower and MacArthur at any
time if they have anything to
discuss. But he made it clear the
initiative would have to come
from them.
The President also made it
plain that although he considers
it MacArthur's duty as a soldier
to come forward if he has any
solution for the war-and to
present' it through- military
channels - Truman does not
plan to force the general's hand.
It is a little late for that now,
the President . sid.

Truman Blasts Ike's

Trip; Doubtful

Speakers Say
Religion Weak
On Campuses
Campus religious leaders gener-
ally disagreed with statements
about the ineffectiveness of reli-
gion on the campuses of the na-
tion made by speakers before the
National Council of Churches of
Christ in the United States this
week.
Expressing the opinions that the
church is not as effective as it
could be, these speakers cited to
the Council the increase in ma-
terialism and the general disin-
terest in religion on university
campuses. They feel that this is
the period of greatest crisis and
challenge to the church.
REV. C. H. LOUCKS, pastor of
the local First Baptist Church,
said that for fifty years the church
has been trying to reach thestu-
dents and that through greater
co-operation between the guilds,
this is now being done more ef-
fectively.
The National Lutheran Coun-
cil 'has supplemented the uni-
versity curriculum throughout
the country by offering students
non-credit courses in Christian
ethics and the New Testament,
said Rev. Henry Yoder, Director
of the University Lutheran Cen-
ter.
Rev. Dwight S. Large, pastor of
the First Methodist Church, felt
that since the war there has been
atrue searching for religion, but
that the institutional bodies may
not be the most effective force in
this quest.
Rev. Large said that this is not
the greatest period of trial for the
church. He pointed out that the

1. That "Christian people have
too long seemed half-hearted inI
their determination to end un-
Christian discrimination.
2. That Americans should "in-
tensify their determination to per-
fect" the United Nations, and not
lose confidence in international
organization for world order be-
cause of disappointments or be-
cause the "novelty has worn off."
3. That private individuals and
groups should increase aid to
peoples "materially less fortun-
ate."
* * *
AT THE SAME meeting Amer-
ica's most representative church
party yesterday heard a first hand
report of Christianity behind the
Iron Curtain in Germany. It point-
ed out the pervading atmosphe
of arrests, restrictions and fear
existing in the Russian sector of
Germany.
The report came from Bishop
Otto Dibelius, the grey-haired,
outspoken spiritual leader rof 40
million protestants, most of whoih1
live in Germany's Eastern zone.'
Church officials of the Council
said yesterday that Methodist
Bishop William C. Martin of Dallas
will be recommended by a nom-
inating committee to become the
next president of the National
Council of Churches of Christ in
the USA.
Woman's Suicide
Re ported by Police
A 52-year-old Ann Arbor woman,
Mrs. Grace Pertner, was reported
dead upon arrival at St. Joseph
Hospital yesterday, due to poison-
ing.
Ann Arbor police reported thex
death as a case of suicide.

CALLS STATE B0ARD 'OBSTRUCTIVE':
Staebler TellsStory of Moody recount Request

WSB Problem
WASHINGTON - (A) - Presi-
dent Truman and his economic
stabilizer said yesterday they have
licked the problem of getting busi-
ness men back on the Wage Sta-
bilization Board.
Truman told a news conference
he expected to have. the crippled
board back on its feet before the
end of this week, with a whole
new panel of industry representa-
tives.
THE BOARD fell apart Satur-
day when all seven of its industry
members quit en masse with -a
bitter blast at Truman's interven-
tion in the soft coal miners'
wage case. They said Truman's
over-ruling of a board decision in
the case made the controls pro-
gram a "mockery."
' Pressure immediately began
building up from business or-
ganizations and at least one big
labor organization-the CIO-
for a junking of controls.

By JON SOBELOFF
Democratic State Chairman Neil
Staebler last night shed some light
on the question of whether a re-
count request was or wasn't filed in
behalf of United States Senatorial
candidate Blair Moody.I
Staebler told The Daily it
wasn't.#

the federal Constitution provides'
that each house of Congress shall
be the judge of the elections, re-
turns and qualifications of its own
members.
STAEBLER also cited the Mc-
Lod case, a 1942 Michigan Su-
preme Court decision, which held
that the sttate government had no

reach him Sunday, before the1
48 hour recount-filing deadline,"
Staebler continued.
He told me not to bother filing,
because the State had no author-
ity in the matter. But he agreed:
to be at home Sunday. By then, I!
saw the law was clear on the sub-
ject. so I called and thanked him

The State Democratic head said
he has made up a list of 15 or 20
main types of irregularities he
feels may have cost Moody votes.
First, he charged many local
election boards throughout the
State are made up of Republi-
cans only. State law requires as
n-a.iv -iinl..nr..-nfnf- n o

ticket and improperly explained
how to count it, Staebler
claimed.
Many poll workers, following the
instructions for awarding the pic-
tured vote for Senator, unknow-
ingly violated State election law,
he charged.
