North Korea
Strike May
End Today
PANMUNJOM -- (P) - Defiant
North Korean prisoners may de-
cide today whether to end a sit-
down against Communist expla-
nation teams-a decision on which
the fate of the armistice may rest.
After a week of silent brooding,
the stubborn Korean anti-Reds
were believed ready to tell their
Indian guards whether they were
willing to listen to Communists
trying to return them to Red rule.
* * *
IF THE answer is "yes," it will
be a resounding triumph for In-
dian patience and will go far to-
ward a peaceful completion late
in December of the explanation
period.
If the answer is "no," it could
lead to a breakup of the 'Neutral
Nations Repatriation Commis-
sion, a mass breakout - of the
prisoners, and to a new and
unfathomable military-political
crisis.
The Communists yesterday end-
ed their boycott of the commis-
sion, but not their demand that
the prisoners be forced to listen.
And their propaganda outlet
showed nervousness over the sit-
uation.
One Peiping broadcast assert-
ed that President Syngman
Rhee "has called up powerful
forces, including tanks, planes
and artillery" to rescue the pris-
oners if they are compelled to
attend explanations.
Another broadcast said the "cru-
cial 'question" was whether Indian
guards "will takegup the challenge
thrown down by ringleaders in the
prison camps." It was an implied
call to India to use force.
Peiping repeated its familiar
charge that South Korean and Na-
tionalist Chinese "agents" in the
camps were using terrors tactics.
rBiochemists
Awarded Two
Nobel Prizes
STOCKHOLM, Sweden - (A) --
Two German-born biochemists,
one an American and the other a
Briton, were awarded the 19531
. Nobel prize for medicine and phy-
siology jointly yesterday for their

honorary degrees will conclude the
afternoon gathering.
Also on today's schedule will
be an engineering college open
house in the morning and a
banquet at the Union at 6:30
p.m. Featured speaker at the
banquet will be Robert Moses;
NewYork City Commissioner of
Parks. The topic of his speech
will be "The Contribution of
Modern Engineering to Our Civ-
ilization."
Students in the engineering col-
lege will be excused from classes
for the two days of the Centen-
nial, and will act as guides for the
open house.
REPRESENTATIVES of Vulcan
and Triangles, engineering hon-
orary societies, and' class officers
will also participate in the con-
vocation procession.
Commemorating a hundred
years of engineering education,
the two-day celebration will in-
augurate proceedings scheduled
to continue throughout the 1953-
54 academic year. During this
time the college plans to pay
tribute to its 25,000 graduates
for their service to society, gov-
ernment, education and indus-
try.

U S., Foreign

Move To Avoid
CongressFight
WASHINGTON-(P)-The Ad-
ministration was reported yester-
day seriously considering a single
budget request to Congress next
January covering both U.S. de-
fense needs and foreign military
aid.
The main objective of a con-
solidated home-and-abroad de-
fense budget, officials said, would
be to overcome congressional re-
sistance to a separate military aid
bill in an election year.
A SECOND and longer-range
goal, these officials said, would be
to establish- the overlapping and
interlocking connection between
strictly U. S. defense needs and the
defense of the whole free wofld,
particularly Western Europe.
One high official said the de-
cision to wrap up military aid in
the regular defense money bill
had all but been made. Another
said such a move is still being
discussed.
The two officials, interviewed
separately, declined use of their
names.4

Dr. Lipmann has devoted much
of his career to studying the mech-

body builds and renews itself out
of the basic factors in food. FromI
this came his discovery of co-en-
zyme A, an organic substance that
plays an important part in nearly
every biological process.
Dr. Krebs was cited for his ex-

Conrad Adenauer's Christian

Profs. James K. Pollock and
Frank Grace, and Henry L. Bret-
ton, all of the political science
department, discussed their find-
ings at a meeting of the Political
Science Round Table.
THE CHRISTIAN Democrats,
Bretton explained, offered a broad,
flexible program which would at-
tract voters of varying views, in-
stead of adhering to a narrow par-

Hoffa as trustee is investigat-
ing extortion charges against
five local officers of these un--
ions. He had previously recom-
mented suspension of the offi-
cers.
By combining the four major
conferences (Western, Southern,
Central and Eastern). the inter-
national. union will be able "to
get a better understanding of the
local unions," Hoffa told the club
members.
With a 'clearer view of the local
unions, Hoffa added "a uniform
wage scale" can be set up, and
there will be an easier access for
contracts with large construction
companies.
Hoffa said the main objective of
union politics in Washington will
be trying to get more "liberal peo-
ple in office so a possible depres-
sion may be reduced."
