For Wa ye
By the Associated Press
Secretary of State Fred M. Al-
ger Jr. Yesterday awaited recount
results in 53 key Wayne County
precincts while Democrats readied
plsans to demand today that the
State Board of Canvassers certi-
fy the reelection of G. Mennen
Williams as governor.
Alger, Republican candidate for
governor, is expected to base his
Sdecision on whether to continue
the recount on retabulated re-
turns in the 63 East Side De-
troit precincts which gave Wil-
liams heavy margins in the elec-

count attorney for Williams, said
he will appear before the State

ALGER both slipped and gained
as big chunks of votes changed
hands today.
In Washtenaw County, the
recount was completed yester-
day with the exception of two
Ypsilanti Township precincts
where an irregularity concerning
inspection officials arose. On
the basis of the other 30 coun-
ties checked, Williams gained a
total of 61 votes.
The question of the inspectors
will probably be decided tomor-
row when the County Board of
Canvassers will hold a hearing on
whether the inspections had taken
the oath of office before assum-
ing their duties. If the ballots af-
fected are invalidiated Alger will
gain a net of 186 votes.

ALGER received a boost when
the Wayne County Board of Can-
vassers credited 300 votes due to
an error in the official canvass.
The error was uncovered in
an adding machine audit of the
Wayne County canvass, which
showed Alger had been short-
changed 100 votes and Williams
given 200 votes too many.
This shift changed Williams'

Put Korea Peace
Hopes up to Reds
UNITED NATIONS, N. Y.-(A)-The United States last night
laid down a "no compromise" policy on a Korean truce and served
notice it cannot see any purpose in sending fresh plans to the Reds for
settling the prisoner of war issue.
"The responsibility for whether there shall be peace in Korea
clearly lies with the Chinese Communists and North Korea authorities
and their supporters," the State Department said in an official
statement after Red China rejected the UN plan for ending the
Korean War.

carefully the blunt rejection by
Red China of the UN Assembly's
Korean peace plan and Peiping's
stiff counter-prqposals.
The terms laid down by the
Chinese Reds are identical to
those put forward earlier by
Russia's Andrei Y. Vishinsky and
rejected by the Assembly in a
one-sided vote.
V. K. Krishna Menon, Indian
delegate who wrote the Assembly
plan, commented that the situa-
tion is "not hopeless." He said the
Red Chinese reply does not show
that they are not willing to nego-
tiate. He would not comment fur-

amine the 3,000-word cable from
all angles.

WILLENS admitted that some
"stumbling blocks"arose in the dis-
cussions, but would not elaborate
on his statement. Difficulty has
reportedly arisen in writing a
pledge which sponsoring groups
would be required to sign before
bringing speakers to campus.
Under the Legislature plan,
the group and its members would
certify that the proposed speaker
would not violate any Regents'
criteria governing campus talks.
Several faculty members of the
Committee reputedly advanced al-
ternative plans which would re-
quire sponsors to guarantee that
the speaker's reputation and back-
ground were free from a subversive
This suggestion is in conflict
with the SL proviso asking that
content of a speech rather than
speaker's background be the chief
criterion in judging a talk.

speeches and not pre-judgment of

up a 10-1 margin with 2:45 gone
in the opening period, expanded
it to 21 points at halftime and
went 30 points to the fore in the
final session on the road to their.
second win in two starts.
Michigan's best chance to
make a game out of it came
early in the first stanza. With
Illinois leading, 24-15, and
thirty seconds remaining in the

John Codwell canned a free

opened, but that was an close as

more points in a row to go on

Coach Bill Perigo's quintet
showed a surge of power as the
second half began. Codwell
funnelled in a one-hander, Ead-

Lawrence dented the twines
with a long set shot. That made
the score 51-33 and things were
looking rosier.

PRESIDENT Lester B. Pearson
of the Assembly received the Com-
munist Chinese reply yesterday
morning and began work on a re-
port to the General Assembly. The
problem uppermost in the minds
of the delegates is: What next?
The indication grew that the UN
will mark time on the Korean is-
sue until after the inauguration of
President-elect Eisenhower. A new
United States delegation, headed
by Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge Jr.
will take its seat then and the
prospects are that the Assembly
will resume considation of the Ko-
rean problem in February.
Red China's rejection was broad-
cast last night by the Peiping

the Assembly peace plan "unjust,
illegal and unreasonable.",
