Party Group
More Warrants
To Be Served
Two University students were
fined $11.25 each and a third stood
mute in Municipal Court yester-
day for their parts in the Arbor-
etum beer parties on May 16.
Charged with furnishing intoxi-
cants to minors, they were the
first of 58 students facing possible
police and University action to be
served warrants as a result of the
intensive, two hour round-up of
illegal drinking parties.
Only Three Warrants Issued
F Detective John Walters empha-
sized that while only three war-
rants for furnishing intoxicants
have been issued so far, more can
be expected. "There were seven
groups and we're investigating to
find out who furnished the beer
for each group," said Walters.
Regarding possible warrants for
under-age drinking, Walters said
"we're not sure yet if the minors
involved will be served with war-
rants or not. That's something
that will have to be decided in the
Before allowing them to enter a
' plea, Municipal Court Judge Fran-
cis O'Brien pointed out that legal-
ly "the fact that a person is un-
der 21 and gets beer from you is
not, in and of itself, a crime.
Can Stand Mute
"In order to convict you a court
would have to prove that you fur-
nished liquor to minors willfully,"
k said Judge O'Brien, informing the
three students that if they wished,
they could stand mute and "avoid
making a hasty decision as re-
gards your fiscal plea."
After conferring briefly with
John E. Bingley, assistant to Act-
ing Dean of Students Walter B.
Rea, two pleaded guilty and a
third stood mute.
Students 'Cooperative'
Detective Walters informed
Judge O'Brien that all three had
been "extremely cooperative," both
at the time they were caught and
during subsequent meetings with
police officers.
Judge O'Brien, after passing
sentence, pointed up the serious-
ness of the drinking situation and
told the students "if a minor gets
drunk and is involved in a serious
accident, the first question police
ask is 'who gave him the intoxi-

Combined Culture Needs
Commenting on conditions in their native Germany, Ruth Pilgrim
and Liselotte Wetzel observed that "the only problem is perhaps how

Unity Parley
Still Deadlocked
GENEVA--(A) - South Korean
Foreign Minister Pyun Yungtai
yesterday laid before the Geneva
conference a 14-point proposal
for unifying his divided nation.
But the four-week deadlock in
negotiations remained.
For the first time South Korea
agreed to country-wide elections.
Previously the South Koreans had
insisted elections should be held
only in the Communist-ruled
Disagree on UN Role
South Korea insisted that the
United Nations supervise the elec-
tions and that Chinese troops in
North Korea be withdrawn into
China a month before the voting.
But Chou En-lai, Red China's
foreign minister, told the confer-
ence that UN supervision was un-
acceptable. The Communists were
believed certain to reject also the
troop withdrawal proposal.
Chou asserted the UN was "a
belligerent in the Korean War
and has long lost its qualifica-
tion for dealing with the Korean
question impartially."
Neutral Group Proposed
Chou proposed that "a neutral
organization be set up to render
assistance to the Korean machin-
ery in charge of the holding oft
the all-Korean elections."
Other points in the South Kor-
ean proposal provided for elec-
tions to be held six months from
the adoption of the proposal; fulla
freedom of movement for UN ob- #
servers and all candidates; adse-
cret ballot and universal adult n:
suffrage. 4
It provided for proportional rep- t
resentation in the all-Korea legis-n
lature on the basis of a UN cen.
sus. The legislature would be con- 0
vened in Seoul immediately aftera
the election ' and would decide c
whether the president of unified i
Korea should be newly elected or b
not. It would also consider con-
stitutional amendments and the c+
disbandment of military units. o
Constitution To Remain n
The present constitution of theo
South Korean Republic would re- n
main in effect except as amended
by the new legislature under the
proposal, while a unified Korea
would be guaranteed in its inde-
pendence by the UN. _

last night amid reports that Na-

off Red China.

The Wolverines thereby finish in
third place in the conference and
lose the -conference crown which
they had shared with Illinois the
past two seasons. They also lose
the right to defend their national
championship which they won last
June at Omaha.
The Maize and Blue, eliminated
from the Big Ten title chase on
Friday by Ohio State, had nothing
to lose and Indiana, mired deep in
the lower regions of the standings,
was in a similar position. The twin
bill was thereby nothing but a glor-

Mary Wisniewski easily captur-
ed the first game, 8-2, with a nice
five hitter, and Jack Corbett kept
his clean slate intact with a six

Corbett's overall season record is
now 7-0, and his conference mark
a neat 4-0.

Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy (R-
Wis.), outlining his side of his
row with the Army in an address
last night, declared he wanted to
"remind" President Dwight D.
Eisenhower of precedents estab-
lished in the Teapot Dome inves-
McCarthy said he was going to
call to the President's attention
"what happened back in 1924.
You will remember that in 1924
we had a Republican president
also. The attorney general in the,
Teapot Dome scandal refused the
congressional committee's access
to files for grand corruption.
Attorney General Refused
"The committee wanted to qu-'
tion the attorney general The.
attorney general refused. After
his refusal President Calvin Cool-
idge demanded his resignation and
ordered that if any of his cabi-
net members know anything about
this, to freely testify and give all
the facts."
McCarthy, speaking in shirt-
sleeves, declared "this is no attack
on the President."
Wisconsin's junior senator told
a Chamber of Commerce banquet,
"but I am going to remind him
about his statement he made at
Abilene, Kan., some time ago. He
said, 'now that town had a code
and I was raised from a boy ona
the code that we should meet any-.
one face to face with whom you
disagree-not to come up behind
" "If you took the same risk and
met him face to face you could get
away with almost anything.' "
Interrupted By Applause
Frequently interrupted by, ap-
plause, McCarthy said he hoped
that before tomorrow the Presi-
dent will go over those words and
recall the charges made against
two members of McCarthy's staff
-Roy Cohn and Francis Carr.
"And here not only are they de-
nied the right to meet face to
face those who made the charges,"
McCarthy said. "But they are de-
nied the right to know who they
Order Involves Smear
McCarthy said that the Presi-
dent's order forbidding further
testimony on Administration con-
ferences preceding the public out-
Army officials involved not presi-
dential business but "machinery of
the smear."!
He added that the Teapot I~omq R.
involved "a serious matter-a
theft of money" and said "it is
10 times worse to steal a man's
repyItation than it is to steal
Earlier, McCarthy said in an In-
terview he will appear andnbe
ready to testify when the Senate :
subcommittee invesigaing his row
wih the Army resumes its ses-
sions tomorrow.
Won't Order To Testify
"I shall advise my staff to tes-
tify if they are called upon," Mc-
Carthy also declared, adding "but
I will not order them to testify."
For himself McCarthy said, "of
course I will be available to tes-
tify at any time."
McCarthy's comments were
made during a press conference
immediately prior to his delivery
of an address in this small south-
eastern Wisconsin city. His ad-
dress had been billed as. a major
review of his side of his row with
the Army.
The senator said that although
he hadbeen opposed to starting
the hearings from their begin-
ning he would stay with them
until they are finished "unless
some new road blocks are thrown
in the way."
McCarthy said he had decided
on going ahead with the hear-
