Atomic Plant
DETROIT - (P) - Construction
of an atomic power plant in the
Detroit area may be started with-
in a year if the Atomic Energy
Commission gives its approval.
It would be a pilot plant to teat
theories worked out by nuclear en-
This was disclosed yesterday by
a spokesman for the Detroit Edi-
son Co. in a progress report on an
atomic plant project.
* * *
A FORCE OF 20 Edison nuclear
engineers has completed the first
studies of atomic energy and is
now engaged in a "reference de-
sign project aimed at solving the
technical problems of an actual
power plant.
Arthur S. Griswold, assistant
to Edison's president, Walker L.
Cisler, said that project .should
be completed by the end of the
year. The Commission then will
be asked for permission to build
the first plant.
The plant would feed electricity
into normal power lines. 'Its fuel
would be raw uranium-measured
in pounds instead of the thous-
ands of tons of coal now needed
for the same power output. Its
cost probably would be "competi-
tive" with that of power from the
common fuels of coal, oil or gas.
The Atomic Energy Commission
has authorized Edison, with Dow
Chemical Corp., Midland, Mich.,
to do research work toward pri-
vate power plants. It has given
the same permission to four other
pairs of companies.

man of New York had given
them until yesterday to file the
petition. He said its filing would
automatically mean a' stay of
execution until five days after
the President announces his de-
cision on the clemency appeal.
The Rosenbergs, husband and
wife, have lost all their court ap-
peals and the appeal to the Pres-
ident was their last resort.
* * *
A JUSTICE Department official
said the appeal goes now to the
department's pardon attorneys
who will review the whole case.
They will make their recommenda-
tion to Attorney General McGran-
ery and he in turn will give his to
the President.
Rosenberg, 34, and his wife
Ethel, 36, were convicted March
29, '1951, of conspiring to turn
America's atom bomb secrets ov-
er to Russia.
The Rosenbergs have main-
tained they are innocent.
The argument used unsuccess-
fully by the defense in court ap-
peals had three main points:
(1) That the pre-trial publicity
was prejudical to the accused, (2)
that the government used "per-
jured" testimony and (3) that the
information the Rosenbergs alleg-
edly passed to the Russians was
"public knowledge and not secret."
If President Truman does not
act before he goes out of office

for the Rosenbergs will be up to

NEW YORK-(P)-Gen. Doug-

blamed any excessive American
military desertions on what he
called President Truman's "poli-
cies of appeasement."
It was a new peak in the feud
between the Chief Executive and
the man he fired as Far Eastern
commander of United Nations
forces fighting in Korea. .,
MacArthur used the most biting
language he has yet applied in
answering Truman's charge that

subordinate," helped increase de-

loss, an 84-57 thumping by North-

points respectively, the Wildcats
grabbed the advantage, 5-4, early
in the first period on a basket by
Don Blaha and continued to widen
the margin through the remainder
of the game.
Dellefield had played the role
of spoiler before against the
Wolverines, notching 17 and 18
points in two contests with them
last year.
Surprisingly enough Northwest-
ern's big threat Frank Petrancek
went scoreless until the middle of
the second period when he was
replaced by Grant.
The Wildcats held a 26-23 edge
at the time, and it was Grant,1

free throw. The score was 62-53.
It was at this point that the!
Wildcats caught fire. With their
fast break working and Grant's
hook shots snapping the nets, they
piled up 17 straight points to take
a commanding 79-53 lead and put
the game on ice.
Grand and sophomore Jim Bra-

goals as spearheads of the rally.
WITH THREE minutes remain-

threw in a basket to break North-!

the Wolverines played even with

Eaddy chalked up 17 points to

not equal the totals of Delle-

Northwestern was outscored 24-22.

An aroused Montreal hockey
team, still smarting from a 13-2
defeat at the hands of Michigan
the night before, upset the favored
Wolverines, 2-1, last night before
a full house at the Coliseum.
- The Maize and Blue, possibly
expecting another easy victory,
knew they werb in for a rough
night before many minutes were
gone. Two Wolverine offsensive
thrusts in the first three minutes
of the game were broken up by
the Montreal defense, which play-
ed superior hockey the whole night.

outpass and outdefend the Wolver-

The Wolverines took heart from
Philpott's goal and poured it on
for the rest of the game, but as

three times they held fast.

The story was the same for the
Wolverines in the second period.
For a few seconds they even had
a two man advantage on their
Canadian opponents, but a stub-
born defense wouldn't give way.
Throughout the game, everytime
the Wolverines controlled the puck
on a fast break, a Montreal de-
fender was able to get his stick in
the way just enough to bust up or
delay the play.
JEAN VERNIER, Carabin de-
fenseman, was especially brilliant
in stopping Wolverine rushes with
a one man advantage.
Early in the first period he
gave a hint of things to come by
single handedly breaking up a
quick surge by Pat Cooney and
