A desert area that has become
the chief friction point between
Israel and Egypt, the zone is sup'-
posed to have been neutralized

L. M. Burns, chief of the -UN truce

tions agreed Sept. 27.
Enter Israeli Territory
In the Israeli sector of Jerusa-
lem, Israeli officials said two com-
panies of Egyptian troops-pei'-
hapss300 men-entered Israel's
territory in a penetration of near-
ly a mile into the Nizana-El Auja
area Friday afternoon.
A Foreign Ministry statement
described the two companies as re-
inforcements for two other Egyp-

and entrenched themselves in the
demilitarized zone "in disregard of
the armistice agreement and of
promises made by Egypt to Gen.
A note to Burn's organization
urged that Egypt "be requested

which they have massed in

Big Four De
East, West Rebuff Rival
Offers On Unification
GENEVA (P)-Rival treaties for European security were offered
by the East and West at the Big Four conference yesterday. Both
met immediate rebuffs.
Russia's V. M. Molotov and the foreign ministers of the United
States, Britain and France failed to bridge any of the wide gap be-
tween their opposing policies for this arms-weary continent.
In their second session, still under the amiable influence of "the
Geneva spirit," the Big Four diplomats tackled the toughest practical

adlock at Geneva

Soviets Fail
In New UN
Debate, Bid
The Soviet Union met with sharp
rebuff yesterday in its efforts to
plunge the United Nations into
debate over disarmament before
the issue can be taken up by the
foreign ministers in Geneva.
The UN Political Committee up-
held the contention of the United
States and Britain that only con-
fusion would result from a simul-
taneous arms debate in Genevaj
and the United Nations.
By a vote of 49-5 with two ab-
stentions, the Political Committee
approved a proposal by Colombia
to consider next the question of
effects of atomic radiation on hu-
man health and safety. The Soviet
bloc was in opposition and Syria
and Indonesia abstained.!

"problems which their heads of gov-
erment briefly discussed here
three month ago.
Offer Extra Guarantees
The West-insistent that the se-
curity dilemma and the German
unification problem cannot be!
solved separately-offered Russia
extra guarantees against German
aggression in return for letting
the membership held by the Bonn
Republic in the North Atlantic
Treaty Organization.
Molotov uttered again Russia's
condemnation of NATO as a war
hazard and urged acceptance of a
new European collective security
system that would recognize the
prolonged division of Germany.
Proposed Security System
His proposed security system
would wipe out NATO and the sev-
en-nation Western European Un-
ion, introduce Red China as an
official observer in European af-
fairs, and eventually compel the
withdrawal of all American troops
from the continent.
The dramatic highlight of the
west's security bid was a provi-
sion to allow NATO and the Soviet
bloc each to operate a radar air
raid warning system inside the

Televised Battle
Assoiate Sports Editor
Iowa will begin and end its 1955
football season at the Michigan
Stadium this afternoon.
Not since 1924 have the Hawk--
eyes defeated the Wolverines. They
came close the past two-years, los-
ing by a collective margin of two
points-both times by identical
14-13 scores. It is no secret that
Forest Evashevski, Iowa coach and
past Michigan great in the late
30's, would like nothing better
than to upset the apple cart of
his Alma Mater.
Nationally Televised Game
A crowd of 80,000 will watch the
Homecoming game that gets un-
derway at 1:30 p.m. Countless
millions more will watch the con-
test over NBC-TV in the national-
ly televised game of the week, The'
game will also be seen on color TV
Michigan, undefeated in five
games and leading the Big Ten,
will be facing a Hawkeye team
that has a 1-1-1 record in con-
ference play. Iowa has also
dropped a game to powerful UCLA
by the tune of 33-13. The Hawk-
eyes' record, though is deceiving.
The visitors have shown great abil-
ity to move the ball all season.
They have scored more than ten
touchdowns this year on drives of
50 yards or more. The Wolverines,
on the other hand, have been able
to accomplish this trick only on
three occasions.
There can be no doubt that
Evashevski is planning something
special for, the Maize and Blue.
Evy held secret practice sessions
all week as everyone except play-
ers and coaches were barred from
the field. Earlier this year the
Iowa mentor pulled the same trick
