VOL. LXIII, No. 67
Fry Allows
Ballot Ruling
To Continue
Board To Decide
Inspectors' Status
A wire from State Director of
Elections Edward W. Fry last night
paved the way for the Washtenaw
County Board of Canvassers to go
ahead and rule on 766 ballots
which face possible invalidation.
Fry's notice followed a State
Canyassers Board decision in-
structing the local board to ascer-
tain if four inspectors were offi-
cially qualified to carry out the
duties of their position.
* * * -
THE WIRE read "even though
the inspector's name does not ap-
pear on the poll book, if it can be
determined that they took the oath
before performing their duties the
ballots bearing their initials should
be counted."
Hugh E. Wilson; chairman of
the county board, said his group
would meet Monday to try to
make a decision on the inspec-
tors after postponing a hearing
on them yesterday pending the
Lansing ruling. The controversy
first arose when it was discov-
ered the inspectors names were
not registered in the precinct
poll books.
The five member board to make
the decision is composed of Wil-
son, Gen Calder, Edward Tripp,
Arthur Lehman ' and Richard
Whitker. All the men are lawyers.
If the board does invalidate the
ballots it will mean Gov. Williams
will lose 476 votes and Fred M.
Alger 290; giving Alger a boost of
186 votes. If the board does not in-
validate the votes, County Repub-
lican Chairman George Weims said
he would probably protest the deci-
sion to the state board.
While the legal difficulties high-
lighted the local recount, Williams
continued to pick up votes over his
r GOP rival. Yesterday the Governor
added 14 votes to give him a net
of 41 in the three days of the re-

Vic Heyliger's Wolverine sextet will entertain the Toronto Blues
at 8 o'clock tonight on the Coliseum ice with the Little Brown Jug of
hockey at stake.

Toronto series, has been in Michigan possession since its inception
in 1947 when the Maize and Blue outskated Toronto, 3-2, at a hospi-
tal benefit in Chicago Staduim.

Lie May Get
Secret U.S.
In formationt
A U. S. State Department com-
mittee and American Justice De-
partment officials are reported
working on ways of giving confi-
dential information on suspected
subversives to UN Secretary Gen-
eral Trygve Lie.
The final decision will be up to
President Truman, informed sourc-
es said yesterday.
* * *
THIS development came as re-
sentment was reported growing
among UN delegations over the
conduct of the whole question of
subversives in the UN. Some dele-
gates, who would not be identified,
said there is a strong feeling that
the delegations should be inform-
ed about what is going on and not
have to read sketchy reports sec-
These delegates said it is ex-
pected that the question of
loyal employes and the system
used to fire subversives might
come up today in the Financial
Committee when it takes up the
question of UN staff regulations.
This may be delayed, however,
until a later date.
A source close to Lie said there
are no new firings of disloyal em-
ployes in prospect at this moment
but it was acknowledged that no
one knew just when sufficient in-
formation- might be received on
which to base action in some cases
now pending.
Lie is expected to meet soon
with U. S. Atty. Gen. McGranary
and with Sen. Alexander Wiley
(R-Wis.), who has taken a keen
interest in the issue of subversives
in the UN. Wiley was resignated
by the U. S. early in the present
General Assembly to handle the
subject of disloyal employes in
talks with UN officials and to
inquire whether Lie needs more
authority for firing persons found
to be subversive.
Persons familiar with Lie's views
reiterated emphatically that Lie
never has and never would fire
any person on the basis of a brief
comment from the United States.

The fracas in East Lansing
wound up in a 6-6 tie. A ten min-
ute overtime period was played but
both teams failed to score in the
extra session.
In their first two games of the
season the Blues were soundly
trounced by Neil Celley's Denver
Pioneers, 7-3, and 8-4. A few days
later they split with Colorado,
dropping the first contest, 11-3,
and then coming back to upset the
overconfident Tigers, 4-3.
Gone from last year's team that
lost two games to Michigan are
high scoring Don Rope and ag-
gressive Jack MacKenzie. Howev-
er, John Adams and Jack Whel-
drake, two of the spark plugs of
last season's aggregation, will be
on hand tonight to liven up the of-
fensive festivities.
Defensively, second year coach
Bill Wade will count on such per'-
formers as Johnny Addison, Oel-
lis "Al" Fasan and Jim Machin.
Jack Ross will probably start in
the nets for the Blues with Evan
Leuty on hand to relieve him.

Truman Accepts
Locke Resignation
Truman yesterday accepted with
"sincere regret" the resignation of
Edwin A. Locke Jr., as a special
ambassador in the Middle East.
Locke was called home for "con-

aid policies in that area.

Fraternity a
Fined $500
For Violation
Delta Tau Delta
Appeal Rejected
A $500 fine and social probation
until June were meted out to Delta
Tau Delta fraternity yesterday by
the University Sub-committee on
Discipline for an unauthorized
party on Oct. 31.
The sub-committee action fol-
lowed the recommendations made
by Joint Judiciary after the stu-
dent group reviewed the case
which resulted from a drinking
party held at a Long Lake cottage.
An appeal by the Delts for a new
hearing on the fine was turned
down by the sub-committee.
In addition the Council ordered
the president, vice-president and
social chairman of the fraternity
to resign and warned the house
that any further misconduct'
would result in a more severe pen-

SOCIAL probation was defined
by the Judiciary Council as:
1. "Prohibition of mixed par-
ties with the exception of a
Christmas formal tonight," and
2. "Ineligibility for any awards
in competitive activities in which
the fraternity might participate,
with the exception of awards in
intra-mural athletic competition."
The definition means that the
fraternity is not eligible for awards
in the Inter-Fraternity Sing which
it has won for the past two years.
Ken Cutler, '54, new Delt presi-
dent, said "the house recognizes
its error and feels the University
was very fair in handling the

ACTION was begun on the

The fine is the largest one im-
posed on a fraternity since Jan.
8, 1951 when Phi Chi medical fra-
ternity was fined $750 and placed
on social probation for an un-
authorized drinking party.
Psi Upsilon was given the larg-
est fine in recent years when they
were penalized $2,000 and placed
on social pro on Nov. 15, 1950
following a drinking party.
The last case of a fraternity vio-
lation was on April 8, 1951 when
Phi Gamma Delta was fined $300
and denied social privileges for a
drinking party.

Will Be Ignored
HONOLULU - (R) -President-elect Dwight D. Eisenhower is
shocked and puzzled by President Truman's blast at his trip to Korea,
it was learned yesterday but is determined not to become involved in
any public wrangle with the President.
From sources of the highest reliability, it can be said that Eisen-
hower feels the Truman blast at him was uncalled for, undignified
and should be ignored.
Truman told a news conference Thursday that the Eisenhower
journey to Korea was the result of political demagoguery and de-
clared Gen. Douglas MacArthur should lay before the administra-

Last Local Fling

Eisenhower Says

THE President-elect will con-
tinue on the course he has set to
find a solution to the war in
Korea-and this will include a
study of MacArthur's proposals
along with others advanced by his
advisers on ways and means of
ending the struggle in Korea.
But, it was learned, Eisenhow-
er is grimly determined that
the United States will hot bring
an end to the Korean struggle
unless a truce calls for the re-
turn of American' prisoners of
war now held by the Commun-
ists. And he is on record against
forced repatriation of Commun-
ist prisoners held by the Allies.
These developments came as
eisenhower was winding up his
last day of talks with key advisers

Plans for the day indicated more

tinue talks with John Foster Dul-
les, the next secretary of state,

ior, and Adm. Arthur W. Radford,
commander in chief of the Pacific
Two associates said he was de-
termined not to answer attacks on
the value of his trip to Korea by
President Truman, who yesterday
called the trip a piece of campaign
demagoguery. It is known that
Eisenhower, who began the jour-
ney two weeks ago, feels the ven-
ture was of great value.

Plani Sought
By Congress
for an immediate congressional
hearing of Gen. Douglas MacAr-
thur's views on ending the Korean
War boiled up on Capitol Hill Fri-
day in the wake of President Tru-
man's statement that he doesn't
think MacArthur has any new
Sen. Hunt (D-Wyo.) said in a
letter to Chairman Russell (D-Ga.)
that the Senate Armed Services
Committee has "a clear cut obli-
gation, not just to the boys in
Korea and their parents, but to
the entire nation" to call an im-'
mediate session.
Rep. Wickersham (D-Okla.), a
member of the House Armed Ser-
vices Committee, went further. He
proposed a joint session of both
the Senate and House committees
behind closed doors.
"For his sake and the country'a
sake, he (MacArthur) should be
heard," Wickersham said.
In addition to telegraphing his
proposal to Chairmen Russell and
Vinson (D-Ga.), Wickersham said
he also had wired MacArthur ask-
ing if he would be receptive to the
idea. Wickersham was a member
of a congressional delegation that
visited Korea earlier this year.
Sen. Hurt wrote Russell:
"If the general has a 'clear and
definite solution' to the Korean
War there certainly can be no jus-
tification in withholding it from
the chiefs of staff, the Congress
or the American people."
Declaring Congress should be
"informed and consulted" at once
if there is any new plan to end the
war, Hunt told reporters:
"This is not a matter that I be-
lieve should wait until the new
Congress convenes on Jan. 3, and I
am convinced most members of
the committee would be able and
more than willing to return to
Washington on such an important
