4 Halt Rioting
Trieste Mob
Gunfire Kills Six
In 72 Hour Fray
By The Associated Press
The surge of bomb-hurling mobs
and the answering crackle of
Trieste police gunfire killed six
persons in two days in this dis-
puted city.
The violence was stilled yester-
day with the intervention of bay-
onet-bearing U. S. infantry occu-
pation forces after 72 hours of
rioting.
* * *
IN WASHINGTON, the State
Department said it takes "a most
serious view" of the bloody riots
and demonstrations. It attributed
the rioting in the disputed Adria-
tic port to "irresponsible ele-
ments."
Late last night Trieste's May-
or Gianni Bartoli sent appeals
to President Eisenhower and
Prime Minister Churchill asking
their direct intervention to re-
store order.
The Italian government ordered
its diplomats in London and Wash-
ington to register sharp protests
against the bloody incidents, and
called its London ambassador
home for a conference.
Yugoslav Foreign Secretary
Koca Popovic, calling in the
British and American envoys in
t- Belgrade, laid before them what
was called a "concrete propo-
sal" for the settlement, of the
dispute with Italy over Trieste.
Four demonstrators were killed
and about30 wounded yesterday
by the gunfire of British-trained
Trieste police, and three police
injured by a hand grenade. Two
were killed and 15 wounded by
police gunfire Thursday-a total
f of six killed and 48 wounded in
this powder-keg city.

Truman Neglects Spy
Report, Brownell Claims
CHICAGO - () - Atty. Gen. Brownell accused the Truman ad-
ministration yesterday of giving Dexter White a high government post
despite an FBI report that White was a Communist spying for Rus-
sia.
Former President Truman denied receiving such an FBI report
before the appointment.
* * * *
THE CHARGE drew quick reaction from Truman, the White
House, Henry Morgenthau Jr., former secretary of the Treasury; Brig.
Gen. Harry Vaughan, Truman's military aide, and others. White is
dead.

Students Ask
ISA Board
Membershi
Members from the International
Students Association will meet
with University President Harlan
H. Hatcher next week to present
and discuss a resolution urging
student membership on the In-
ternational Center's Board of Gov-
ernors.
The resolution which received
unanimous backing at a meeting
of the 40 member ISA House of
Representatives Thursday urges
that President Hatcher appoint a
number of student representatives
to the board.
ACCORDING to Edward Plan-
chon, '55, president of ISA, Presi-
dent Hatcher has indicated that
he favorably views the proposal
and will recommend that the
the Board of Regents adopt it in
their next meeting.
"President Hatcher may rec-
ommend two or three student
representatives," Planchon said.
The Board of Governors, a sev-
en-man faculty body appointed by
the president with Regents ap-
proval, has never had student rep-
resentatives on it before. Its chief
function is to advise the center's
director.
IN THURSDAY'S meeting Plan-
chon described a seven-man study
committee set up during the sum-
mer to take a survey of the 1,070
foreign. students on campus for
criticisms of the center and sug-
gestions for future improvement
The report of this committee,
expected to be made in three
weeks, will be handed to Presi-
dent Hatcher for his use in
studying changes to be made
in the center's organization and'
functions, Planchen said.
Three new officers appointed by
the ISA president were approved
by the representatives.
These include Amnuay Viravan,
Grad., executive secretary; Dinez
Ribeiro, Grad., activities chair-
man, and Edwin von Boeventer,
Grad., treasurer.

* Truman said "as soon as we
found out White was wrong we
fired him" and that Brownell's
charges were "political" because
the Eisenhower administration
is "scared" and "desperate" aft-
er failing in Tuesday's elections.
1. The White House count-
ered that Truman's statement that
White was fired was "not true"
and that White had resigned. Press
Secretary James Hagerty said he
would produce "the facts" about
the case. He read a letter from
Truman dated April 7, 1947, near-
ly 18 months after the alleged
first FBI report on White's ac-
tivities was made and given for
delivery to Truman. In the letter
Truman accepted White's resigna-
tion as director of the Interna-
tional Monetary Fund.
2. The Senate Internal Secur-
ity subcommittee said it has
subpoenaed Brig. Gen. Harry
Vahghan to appear before the
group Nov. 1. for closed-door
questioning about the report
Brownell said Vaughan was giv-
en to deliver to Truman.
The Republican Congressional
Campaign Committee said Brow-
nell's statement "further vindi-
cated" the position of Sen. Mc-
Carthy (R-Wis.).
4. Morgenthau, White's onetime
chief, said he had had no "infor-
mation to make me suspicious of
White."
5. In Washington, FBI Direc-
tor J. Edgar Hoover's office said
there would be no comment on
Brownell's speech.
White, an economist and mone-
tary expert, had held a number
of high government positions from
the time he entered the Roosevelt
administration until he left it in
1947. He, died in August, 1948.

Schools' OK
Necessary,
Aide Says
Athletic Board
Takes No Action
By GENE HARTWIG
Frank Blackford, legislative as-
sistant to Gov. G. Mennen Wil-
liams, yesterday denied that the
Governor said he would go ahead
with presentation of the proposed
Michigan-MSC trophy whether or
not the two schools approved the
idea.
To date the Board in Control
of Athletics here has taken no
public action toward either ap-
proving or disapproving the tro-
phy.
* * *
IN A LETTER acknowledging
the Governor's request that presi-
dents of both institutions arrange
a half-time presentation cere-
mony, University President Har-
lan H. Hatcher suggested that the
trophy be unveiled in the presence
of the two team captains prior to
game time.
President Hatcher said that-
it would be up to the host school
to decide whether the ceremony
would be held on field or not.
"My opinion is that such tro-
phies, if any, should arise out of
the game itself, and should be stu-
dent-inspired," President Hatcher
commented.
Gov. Williams' letter asked that
the presidents arrange the presen-
tation ceremonies between halves
of the Nov. 14 game.
BLACKFORD pointed out that
most states with two large schools
have some sort of governor's tro-
phy awarded to the winner of the
annual football game. The idea
would not be the same as having
a trophy rivalry with some out-
state school, Blackford said.
"The trophy was suggested
this year to avoid the political
implications it might have next
year which will find the state
in the middle of a gubernatorial
campaign," Blackford said.
Design of the proposed trophy
includes a large plate on the front
with the inscription "Governor's
Trophy" while on the back will be
a small plate bearing Gov. Wil-
liams' name.
The trophy, already being made
by a wood carver in Chicago, will
have a hand carved figure of Paul
Bunyan standing astride the map
of Michigan.
Plates of Michigan copper for
the inscription of each year's win-
ner will be provided.

The University was paralized
yesterday for six and one half
hours when a power line suddenly
failed in mid-afternoon.
The clock on Burton Tower
stopped dead at 2:21 p.m. and
a huge area of the campus was
without lights for the remainder
of the day. But as the Tower bell
tolled 9 p.m. the lights quickly
sputtered on.
HIT BY the power failure were
the League, Hill Auditorium,
Rackham Bldg., University Laun-
dry, Health Service, the Plant de-
partment building, North Hall, the
Museum Annex and the Women's
Athletic Bldg.
Electricians working through-
out the day were finally able to

Badeau Calls
Egypt's Naguib
Sincere Leader
By ARLENE LISS
"A man with a breadth of out-
look" is the description of Egyp-
tian president, General Moham-
mad Naguib, given by Dr. John
S. Badeau, President of the Near
East Foundation.
Dr. Badeau who visited the cam-
pus yesterday has known Naguib
for some time and has had several
interviews with him since the Gen-
eral came to power last year.
* * *
IN HIS former official capacity
as president of the American Uni-
versity of Cairo and as a resident
of the Near East since 1928, Ba-
deau has gained a great knowledge
and insight into the problems of
Egypt.
In his estimation Naguib's ad-
ministration has so far been suc-
cessful in Egypt. This success
he attributes to the Egyptian
leader's background and char-
acter.
"When one first meets him one
is immediately impressed with his
intense sincerity," Badeau ex-
plained. "He puts on no false front
and since becoming president has
not changed his ways," he added.
The former philosophy profess'r
remarked that Naguib seemed
without personal political ambi-
tion and has a "very sincere, pa-
triotic attachment."
* *,*
POINTING out the general's
successful settlement of the Suda-
nese problem, Badeau emphasized
that no other Egyptian government
had been able to solve the prob-
lem.
Nagiub answered a call "for

ance to a grounded power line
under the League.
As a result: a show didn't gol
on, candles were brought forth
in all parts of the electrically lit
campus and a group of children3
were caught in an elevator at Bur-
ton Tower.a
At 8:15 p.m. yesterday the Lea-
gue looked like the inside of a
great Medieval castle. Candles,
placed at regular intervals along
stairways and in the wide halls
provided the only sources of light.
A theater crowd gathering to
attend a performance of Gilbert
and Sullivan's "Patience," was
turned away after milling in the{
darkness for fifteen minutes.
BACKSTAGE the cast of the
G&S Society's financial condi-
rector Jerry Bilik '55M call off
the show.
The actors and actresses in
states of semi-attire and half
made-up faces stood around and
took the news regretfully. The
greasepaint glistened in the
darkness.
Murmers were heard about the
G&S Society's financial condi-
tion. One student remarked.
"This will mean the end of us'
financially."
AROUND CAMPUS, power had
been restored to Burton Tower
and other buildings. But the Lea-
gue continued in darkness.
Earlier in the day some child-
ren were caught in an elevator at
Burton Tower when it stopped
without warning in its ascent.
They were finally freed after a
delay.
And as the mascarad actors and
the impatient musicians broke up
their gathering, the strains of "It
was sad, oh, it was sad, when the
great ship went down ... " could
be heard.

AN OVERFLOW Homecoming
crowd is expected to witness the
game which is the 39th in a bit-
ter and hard-fought series dat-
ing back to 1898. Michigan has
come out on top 25 times and Il-.
linois 13 to date, the last Wolver-
ine victory being a 13-0 shutout
back in 1949.
Both teams have been slightly
held back by injuries, but the
only performer not expected to
make at least a token appear-
ance is Illini fullback Stan Wal-
lace who re-injured his knee in
last week's 21-0 triumph over
Purdue.
Ken Miller, who previously had
been benched with an ailing ankle
will replace Wallace and the bulky.
6-2, 200-pound senior is well ca-,
pable of handling the line-buck-
ing spot. Shifty Bates, the power-
running sophomore, has been kept
out of contact drills with an ail-
ing back, but there isn't much
doubt as to his appearance in a
starting role today.
* * * .
JOHN BAUER and Wally Ver-
nasco, Eliot's prize pair of two-
way guards are the other first-line
performers who may not be at top
efficiency for tomorrow's contest
and line coach Burt Ingwersen of
the Illini has been hard-pressed
readying replacements for the
first-string duo.
Still, the offense-minded Or-
ange and Blue outfit rule solid
favorites over Coach Bennie

Patience' .Run
To End Today
There are still a few tickets
available for the performance of
the comic operetta, "Patience," at
8 p.m. today in Lydia Mendelssohn
Theater.
According to Clarence Stephen-
son, Grad., director of the opera,
there are more tickets available
for the 2 p.m. performance. He
urged students wishing to see the
show to attend the matinee to
avoid being turned away from the
later performance.

For Illinois
Grid Clash
Classrooms were conspicuously
empty yesterday afternoon as an
estimated 2,800 students left Ann
Arbor for the Champaign campus
and today's Michigan-Illinois foot-
ball game.
The weatherman forecast clear
skies and crisp weather for the
travelers and no hint of the snow
that proved so costly for Wolver-
ine gridders two years ago. Rain
predicted for southern Michigan
may catch up with those returning
to the campus late Sunday night.
* * *
FIFTY-ONE students traveled
to Chicago and Champaign on the
Wolverine Club's special train,
while the majority of students de-
pended upon cars or gust their
thumbs to take them the 320 miles
to the game.
Because of a shortage of ac-
commodations in the Champaign
area, many Michigan rooters
stopped overnight. in Chicago
and planned to arrive today just
in time for the festivities.
A full calendar of Illinois homey
coming events promises a variety
of entertainment for Wolverine
fans. Last night's agenda includ-
ed two' dances, a stunt show, an
aquacade and a "Beat Michigan"
Pep Rally.
* * *
SCHEDULED for this morning
is a Wolverine Coffee hour.
A fiasheard section and the 11-
lini Marching Band led by Chief
Illini In full Indian dress will
entertain football spectators
during the game and at half-
time. Homecoming displays and
open houses will round out the
afternoon's activities.
Tonight, Michigan students will
have a choice of attending three
more dances, the stunt show or
various fraternity social functions.
MEANWHILE the Ann Arbor
campus has settled down for a
quiet weekend.
Panhellenic officials predict-
ed yesterday that there would
'be fewer couples at tonight's
Panhel Ball than at last year's
dance, but ticket sales have
been brisk and the dance has
already been called "definitely
a success."
Many campus groups have
scheduled listening parties for to-
day's Michigan-Illinois football
game. Few of the houses have
planned other activities.
Harried students faced with
mid-semester exams were plan-
ning to spend their time catching
up on their studies.
