7 Students'
Rea Discusses
Judic Sidestep
Reinstatement today of the sev-
en University students suspended
Thursday for wielding paint
brushes on the Michigan State
College campus Wednesday night
has been virtually assured.
The seven completed their
clean-up project yesterday and
said last night they planned to
hand over a statement to that ef-
fect from MSC Assistant to the
Dean of Students Elwood Voller
to Acting Dean of Students Walter
B. Rea here today.
ACCEPTANCE of the statement
by Dean Rea will make the four
i engineers and three literary col-
lege men eligible for reinstate-
meait according to the agreement)
made when the disciplinary action
was handed down Thursday.
The seven included James
Burke, '55; Joseph Burke, '56;
Howard Hall,'54; Robert Luecke,
'55E; William Carleton, '56E;
Donald Jones, '56, and David
Joyce, '55E.
Total cost of transportation to
East Lansing and materials for
cleaning up the, green water color
plaint amounted to about three
dollars per man several of the
would-be artists reported.
Answering criticism that the
Joint Judic had not been consult-
ed in the disciplinary action Dean
Rea said, "for convenience and ex,
pediency in getting the clean-up
job completed by game-time Sat-
urday, it was felt that the process
of handling the case through Ju-
dic could be sidestepped."
DEAN REA pointed out that "in
emergency cases of this sort there
is discretionary authority vested in
his office to take disciplinary ac-
tion." He said that even under nor-
mal circumstances student discip-
linary cases are not handled by
the Judic.
Since the students involved in
this particular incident were
from both the engineering and
literary colleges, representatives
of both schools were included on
the four-men committee that
handed out the discipline.
The four were Dean Rea, As-
sistant Dean James H. Robertson
of the literary college, Assistant
Dean Walter J. Emmons of the
engineering school and Prof. Axel
Marin of the engineering discipli-'
nary committee.
Dean Rea assured that any more
cases of this sort occurring before
today's game would be turned over
to Judic on Monday.

State Colleges'
Probe Proposed
Unfair Competition Evidence
Sought by Michigan Legislator
By The Associated Press
An investigation of charges that tax-supported. colleges are un-
fairly competing with private colleges was proposed yesterday by Sen.
Creighton R. Coleman (R-Battle Creek.)
He planned to make the demand at a meeting of a legislative
committee studying higher education, but was called away: Presum-
ably he will make the demand at the committee's next meeting Dec. 21

Peace Talks
To Resume,
and Communist diplomats yester-
day broke a three-week deadlock
with agreement on an agenda for
preliminary talks to arrange for a
Korean peace conference.
U. S. Ambassador Arthur H.
Dean said the two sides ,reached
a "meeting of the mind" by agree-
ing that the time, place and com-
position of the peace parley may
be discussed simultaneously in two

DEAN AND the top Red repre-
sentatives will meet again tomor-
row to work out details for the
committee sessions.
The top diplomats returned
to Panmunjom after a week's
recess and in one hour gave for-
mal approval to the agenda
worked out in six secret sessions
by staff advisors from each side.
Dean told newsmen after the
"This is just the key that opens
the door. The real hard work is
just commencing." He added, "at
least this is progress."
* * .*
ASKED IF he thought his mis-
sion to arrange for the peace con-
ference would be successful, the
envoy replied:
"I have always been optimis-
tic, and am even more optimis-
tis now.",
Dean told newsmen the approv-
ed agenda "is substantially what
I proposed" in his Oct. 31 meeting
with the communists.
The diplomats in 11 earlier
meetings had failed to find an ap-
proach for setting up the confer-
ence. The Reds had insisted that
the question of admitting Asian
neutrals, one of their demands, be
taken up first. U. S. Envoy Arthur
H. Dean, representing the Allies,
insisted that the time and place
of the conference be settled first.
The Allies have taken a stand
that only the belligerents should
be invited to the peace conference.
They are willing, however, to per-
mit Russia to sit in on the Red

the meeting, said yesterday the is-
sue was of little importance among
those discussed at the conference.
He saw no competition exist-.
ing between public and private
colleges. He said that, after
World War 1I, private schools
took more students percentage
wise than state institutions and
the relationship between num-
bers enrolled has remained con-
Making further statements on
the issue Sen. Coleman privately
said that he understood that "the
state colleges and universities are
vigorously recruiting new students
among high schools and at the
same time crying about their enor-
mous enrollments."
He said he was informed the 10
state-supported institutions offer
scholarships to virtually every
high school in the state.
* * *
"I SEE no objection to offering
scholarships out of funds donated
to the colleges for that purpose,"
Coleman said. "But I am informed
that many of these scholarships
are simply a waiving of tuition by
the institutions with no money in-
"That must amount to a con-
siderable expense for the col-
lege to absorb and it makes it
very difficult for the private
colleges, which can not do that,
to compete for students."
Commenting on Sen. Coleman's
statements, Clyde Vroman, direc-
tor of admissions, said the matter
touches on a current practices of
institutions throughout the na-
tion to help needy students.
He pointed out that the present
scholarship program was begun
before the era of low enrollment
and is "not a recent move in view
of lower enrollment."
He called the scholarship pro-
gram a "normal development of
American Education to help wor-
thy students profit from college.
Ivan Parker, assistant to Dean
of Students, said the GI Bill may
be working hardships on the pri-
vate schools who have a higher
fees because the GI Bill grants a
set amount for education.
Also under consideration at the
meeting was the setting up by the
Council of College Presidents of
detailed studies of unwarranted
duplication of courses in the state-
supported colleges.
On this issue President Hatcher
indicated the studies are to re-
veal to what extent duplication is
needed. He said all basic courses
are necessarily duplicated but
when.the range of such as atomic
physics is reached duplication

Clark Slows
Velde Act Called
'Bad Business'
By The Associated Press
Supreme Court Justice Tom
Clark refused to testify yesterday
before government probers and
the Harry Dexter White "Soviet
espionage" case sank into a week-
end congressional eclipse.
Further details in the sensa-
tion-packed case may break into
the light Tuesday. Attorney Gen-
eral Herbert J. Brownell is sched-
uled to appear then before the
Senate internal security subcom-
* * *
JUSTICE Department officials
said Brownell plans to give the
sub-committee a "comprehensive
statement" about the case.
Brownell lit the fuse for
Washington's biggest political
explosion in many a day with
charges last week that former
President Trumnan promoted
White from assistant Treasury
secretary to U.S. director of the
International Monetary Fund in
1946 although FBI reports to
the White House had shown
White to be a spy.
In the House Un-American Ac-
tivities Committee, which vainly
issued fast subpoenas for Truman,
Byrnes and Clark, plans for hear-
ings on the case were i n 4tate of
indefinite suspension.

AT A SECRET post midnight
meeting yesterday a representative
of the Republican National Com-
mittee warned Rep. Velde (R-Ill.)
of the House Un-American Activi-
ties Committee that his attempt
to subpoena former President
Truman for testimony in the Har-
ry Dexter White "Russian spy
case" was "bad business."
White House staffers were al-
so reported to have taken a
hand-either directlyor through
intermediaries - in trying to
block the move.
In New York' Fred Smith, a
former Treasury department aide,
concerning the White case said
yesterday that President Eisen-
hower met Harry Dexter White
in a tent in England in 1944.
President Eisenhower, question-
ed at his press conference last
Wednesday about the controver-
sial White case, said he had never
met White and knew nothing
about him.
In Canada where Eisenhower is
visiting, an aide said there would
be no comment on Smith's article.

For Upset Victory
Sellout Crowd Set To Witness 46th
Meeting Between Traditional Rivals
Daily Sports Editor
Special To The Daily
EAST LANSING-Underdog Michigan goes against the mighty
Spartans of Michigan State here at Macklin Field this afternoon in
the 46th football meeting between ancient intra-state rivals.
A sellout crowd of nearly 51,000 will watch Bennie Oosterbaan's
twice-beatenWolverines attempt to end a three game losing streak
at the hands of Biggie. Munn coached teams. Millions more across
America will witness the, struggle, which is being televised as the
Game of the Week.
THE SPARTANS rate as two-touchdown favorites, but in this as

in so many other Big Ten games,
the past record can be thrown out
in trying to predict the winner.
This will be Michigan State's final
conference game, while Michigan
has yet to play Ohio State.
Last Saturday the Spartans,
with the flashy LeRoy Bolden
racing for three touchdowns,
smashed Ohio State's title
dreams before 80,000 in the big
horseshoe at Columbus. Bolden
will carry the brunt of the
Michigan State offense this af-
ternoon, but his running mate,
Billy Wells, has been sidelined
with pneumonia.

Time Record
Election workers completed tal-
lying Student Legislature ballots
in near-record time yesterday,
with final results coming about
2:30 a.m.
Early Thursday evening short-
handed referenda workers had pre-
dicted the setting of a new record
for long-lasting counts topping
even that set last spring, when fi-
nal returns were tallied at 5:30
a.m. the day after elections.

seats after The Daily went to press
at 2 a.m. yesterday were Bob Hen-
derson, '56, Fred Furth, '56, Carl
Eckert, '55, and Larry Levine, '56.
Eckert and Levine will fill one-se-
mester positions.
Several Legislature members
termed voting on the final exam
referendum a "clear mandate"
for exam study committee mem-
bers to work for returning to un-
official graduations and a long
'dead' period before exams begin,
as well as maintaining the pres-
ent 10-day Spring Recess.
Results of the "Fair Play" stick-
er referendum were generally con-
sidered indecisive, however, be-
cause of the scant difference be-
tween proponents and opponents
of the sticker. Loud boos and hisses
accompanied yesterday morning's
announcement of the bare major-
ity in favor of the anti-discrimina-
tion plan.
MEANWHILE, several SL mem-
bers and other students who were
disappointed in the defeat of sev-
eral candidates whom they consid-
ered unusually able leaders hinted
that strong attempts would soon
be made to establish a 'student
government party' on campus.
Students proposing the party
say it would be neither conserva-
tive nor liberal, but would work
to promote election of qualified
campus leaders who backed cer-
tain plans for strengthening stu-
dent government. The plans
would be embodied in a party
platform which may be written
within a few weeks.
In a Daily questionnaire sent
to all candates prior to elections,
nearly half replied they would be
in favor of having one or more
campus political parties to point
up issues involved in elections.

TELEVISION cameras will prob-
ably not show the one-minute un-
veiling of the $1,400 trophy, sched-
uled to be presented by the Gov-
error to captains of the two teams
in center field.
Usually, television officials
say,. cameras are trained on
bands, student cheering and
crowds rather than on presenta-
tions and awards.

leaders had claimed one of the
main reasons for the Governor's
presentation was so he could ap-
pear not only before the football
crowd, but also before an estimated
54,000 nation-wide television view-
CONTROVERSY over the tro-
phy began almost immediately af-
ter announcement of the plan,
with charges that political motiva-
tions were foremost in minds both
of those in favor and those in op-
position to the trophy.
Although MSC athletics dir-
ector Ralph Young and MSC's
athletics board gave quick ap-
proval to the plan, the Uni-
versity's Board was accused of
stalling making any decision so
the trophy, which required con-
sent of both schools, could not
be presented at this year's game.
More recently raised was the
question of who would pay for the
trophy. Originally it was reported
that the Governor was paying for
it "out of his own pocket." Wed-
nesday; however, William Present,
Lansing jeweler who arranged for
carving the statue, said Gov. Wil-
liams had asked him "to raise a
certain sum in Lansing toward the
cost and said some of his friends
in Ann Arbor would also con-
tribute." Present said the Gover-
nor would give money toward the
total cost also.
