It also said Russia put 6,000 to
12,000 troops into Korea in ad-
vance of the armistice and still
controls the North Korean govern-
ment through Soviet citizens.
Charges were leveled in a series
of documents, in the nature of a
White Paper, which the Defense
Department said were based on

The timing, thescontent and the
fact that it was the Pentagon
which released the documents ap-
peared to be an obvious effort to
draw a parallel between Soviet ac-
tivity in Korea and Chinese Com-
munist operations in Indochina.
Among other things, the docu-
ments stated that:
1) The top officials of North
Korea, including Kirki Ii Sung, who
became Premier in 1946, and Nam
Il, senior Communist delegate at
the Panmunjom armistice talks,
are "all Soviet citizens by birth"
and are "the Russians who run
the governmental apparatus of
North Korea."
2) By the end of last May--
nearly two months before the ar-
mistice-from 6,000 to 12,000 "Rus-
sian tactical troops" were in
Korea, in anti-aircraft units, med-
ium gun regiments and quarter-
master and rail outfits. About
1,300 Russians were employed
as staff and technical advisors
throughout North Korea. .

ers of line units, orders were trans-,
mitted in Russian.

troops, together with some medical

ancestry who had been trained by

Conference on Charges
To Remain Confidential
WASHINGTON-(T)-A high Republican official predicted yes-
terday that the Administration will stick by its refusal to bare details
of a Jan. 21 Cabinet-level conference that paved the way for Army
charges against Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy (R-Wis.).
The official, who asked that he not be named, said he expects
the refusal to bring a fight with Democrats on the Senate sub-
committee investigating the Army-McCarthy issue.

SEN. JOHN L. McCLELLAN (D-Ark.) and other Democrats have
demanded full information about the conference, which was attended

Financed entirely out of foot-
ball receipts, the comprehensive
building program has been ap-
proved by the Board in Control
of Intercollegiate Athletics and
the Board of Regents.
Prof. Crisler said that construc-
tion of the men's pool and athletic
administration building will get
underway this summer with com-
pletion expected next spring.
He indicated that work on the
pressbox and fieldhouse will pro-
ceed as rapidly as funds become
available. Prof. Crisler also ex-
pressed the hope that the press-
box, which will be given priority
over the fieldhouse, can be started
within a year and the fieldhouse
within three years.

"UNIVERSITY enrollment is in-
creasing continually and we plan
to keep pace with it," the athletic
director said. "Michigan has al-
ways had the reputation of having
one of the finest athletic plants
in the country and we plan to keep
it that way. While some parts of
our plants have become outmoded,
our planned building program will
make Michigan second to none in
this respect."
The new pool, which will have
a seating capacity of 3,000 for
spectators at varsity meets, and
the athletic offices will be one
unit located just north of the
present athletic administration
building, with the office entrance
located at State and Hoover.
The pool will be built directly
against the east side of the Intra-
mural Sports Building, enabling
the new unit to utilize heating
facilities already available in the
Intramural Building.
To make room for the additions,
the Ferry Field track will have to
be moved several yards west of its
present location.

EVENTUALLY razed to make
room for the fieldhouse will be the

ing. Its construction will almost

This new fieldhouse will also
enable Michigan to holdcham-
pionship indoor track meets, as
well as provide handball courts
and other facilities ° for intra-
mural athletics.
When questioned, Prof. Crisler
indicated that there was a possi-
bility the fieldhouse could also be
used for hockey,

In Indochina, Vietminh mor-

Israel-Jordan Dispute Aired

It was fairly quiet this week in
the United Nations as most of the
world focused attention on the Ge-
neva Conference and reflected on
the fall of Dien Bien Phu-.
Almost ignored was the bitter
strife between Israel and Jordan
which once again exploded into
violence. The UN sought to act on
this pressing problem, and also on

several hours. The commission de-
nounced Israel's actions as being
"inconsistent" with their armis-
tice agreement.
