UN Resolves
To Create
Police Force
N General Assembly
Approves Resolution
64-0 As 12 Abstain
The United Nations General As-
sembly voted yesterday to create
h °t an international emergency police
force for immediate use in keeping
peace in the Middle East.
It acted in the face of two com-
1) Israel has announced she will
bar "a foreign force, no matter
how called," from territory her
troops are occupying.
2) Arab nations demanded the
withdrawal of all attacking forces
in advance of the arrival of the
UN police force-and Britain
served notice she would refuse to
do so.
The resolution was approved by
64 to 0 with 12 nations abstaining.
It stipulated that the UN chief
of command should consult with
r Secretary General Dag Hammar-
skjold on the size and composition
of the emergency force, then "pro-
ceed with the full organization"
of it.
Twelve countries have already
offered to contribute troops.
The resolution also created a
} seven-nation advisory committee,
composed of representatives from
Brazil, Canada, Colombia, India.
Ceylon, Norway and Pakistan, to,
assist Hammarskjold, as chair-
man, in setting up the force.
The action went beyond last
Sunday's move by the Assembly.
At that time it voted to authorize
Hammarskjold to prepare a plan
for the force. Yesterday's action
approved the plan and issued the
directive to put it into force.
The vote came after a daylong
debate during which indications
mounted that pressure will be ap-
plied to get the Israeli army out
of Egypt.,
Sir Pierson Dixon, British chief
delegate, told the General As-
sembly it is Birtain's policy "to
ensure that Israeli forces withdraw
from Egyptian territory,
Dixon said, Britain "cannot ac-
cept the proposition that British
troops withdraw before the cre-
ation of an international force
which could serve to separate
Egyptian and Israeli forces."
He said fighting might break out
again between the Egyptians and
Israelis "if we withdrew before
arrival of the international force."
The Assembly also adopted a 19-
nation resolution calling on Bri-
tam, France and Israel once more
to quit Egyptian territory im-
This resolution specified that
the Israeli army should go back
to lines "established by the armi-
stice agreement of 1949." This
would take the Israelis from the
Gaza Strip and the Sinai Penin-
Clashes Mar
In Port Said
LONDON (0)-Shooting ripped
through Port Said late yesterday
despite the cease-fire invoked by
Britain and France along the oc-
cupied Suez Canal.
Dispatches from the battle-
scarred city astride the canal's
Mediterranean gateway reported

continuing exchanges b e t w e e n
Egyptian snipers and Allied oc-
cupation forces.
The Egyptian government said
fighting for control of Port Said
and the northern end of the canal
continued yesterday.
Opposition Gone
The British and French had re-
ported no organized Egyptian op-
position was left at Port Said.

Dems, GOP
Split States;
One In Doubt
By The Associated Press
A delayed vote count last night
gave Democrats their 15th winner
in 30 contests for governor.
Republicans have won 14. One
race -in Rhode Island - is still
The latest Democratic victory
was scored in Oregon when Demo-
crat Robert D. Holmes unseated
Republican Governor Elmo E.
Holmes' triumph meant that the
Democrats now have a net gain
of two governors. Earlier results
brought the downfall of Republi-
cans in Iowa, Kansas, Massa-
chusetts and Washington.
GOP Ousts Dems
Contraywise, Republicans oust-
ed Democrats in New Mexico,
Ohio and West Virginia.
In the one remaining undecided
contest Democratic Governor Den-
nis J. Roberts of Rhode Island held
a razor-thin edge over Republican
Christopher de Sesto,
West Virginia elected its first
Republican governor-Cecil Un-
derwood, 34 years old-since 1928.
On the other hand Kansas elected
its first Democratic governor-
George Docking-since 1936. 1
Republican SweepI
Underwood rode a Republican
sweep in West Virginia to victory
over Representative Robert H.
Mollohan for the seat vacated by
Governor William C. Marland who
lost in his bid for a United States
Senate seat.
A bitter split in Republican
ranks was credited with helping
Docking in Kansas. Although
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
and Senator Carlson (R) swept
Kansas, Docking easily bested
Warren Shaw, Republican.
In Iowa Governor Leo A. Hoegh
lost out to Democrat Herschell G.
Ohio Race
William O'Neill, Republican
state attorney general, won the
Ohio governorship in a race with
Michael V. DiSalle, Democrat and
former OPA head, O'Neill will suc-
ceed Governor Frank Lausche, who
won a U.S. Senate seat.
Illinois Governor William G.
Stratton, Republican, trailed Dem-
ocrat Richard R. Austin in the
early tabulations but came on
strong to win by a handy margin.
Fleet Moves
tic Fleet's mightiest warships,
headed by the giant carrier For-
restal, were at sea yesterday as a
result of Russia's threat to use
military force in the Middle East

VIENNA (A)-Hungarian rebels
battled yesterday to stem a sys-
tematic slaughter by the Russians
inside armor-ringed Budapest.
They fought on also at points
south of the capital and appealed
to President Dwight D. Eisenhower
for aid.
Trustworthy information that
has been received in Vienna, and
broadcast by the rebel Radio Rak-
oczy told of the Hungarians' con-
tinued struggle for freedom from
the Soviets on this 39th anniver-
sary of the Bolshevik Revolution.
Failing in a three-day attempt
to wipe out pockets of resistance,
the Russians opened their heaviest
shelling of Budapest late last Tues-
day, these accounts said.
Clinics and hospitals were among
their targets. Men, women and
children were killed.
The Red Cross said civilian cas-
ualties were very heavy,
The siege lines clogged supplies
from the countryside and some
areas of the city were without food.
At Killian barracks, the Var
Palace, Moscow Square, an auto
factory office and other positions,
rebel detachments hammered back
at Soviet forces harassing them
with mortar and machinegun fire.
"Manpower is no problem," a
Hungarian reported. "When one is
killed another - s o me times a
woman- picks up his gun."
French Storm
PARIS (;P)-Thousands of infuri-
ated Frenchmen, shouting "free-
dom of Hungary," yesterday storm-
ed and set afire the headquarters
of the French Communist party.
Then they marched to the plant
of the Communist n e w s p a p e r
L'Humanite, shouting anti-Soviet
slogans and singing the "Marseill-
Police, firemen and Communist
defenders hel dthe into a stand-
About 30 persons were injured.
The violence climaxed a day of
mass anti-Communist demonstra-
tions in France and elsewhere in
Europe .on the 39th anniversary of
the Bolshevik revolution.
Five former French premiers led
tens of thousands in Paris in a
parade through the Arch of Tri-
umph protesting ruthless Soviet
repression of Hungarian patriots.

"The Father" is the second play of the current season for the
Dramatic Arts Center, Ann Arbor's professional arena theatre.
Though the DAC has received a great many requests for a work
of Strindberg, according to Director Joseph Gistirak, the company
felt that he offered a challenge they were not strong enough to meet.
"Now," Gistirak said, "with a stronger company than We ever
had, we are presenting 'The Father.' This play is probably the most

main in this vicinity until the end

The Class of June, 1956 can now breathe a sigh of contentment..
At long last, their gift to the University is bubbling and gurgling,

The fountain, situated between the Union and the Administra-

Reactions to the fountain varied. One student commented, adroitly
dodging the icy drops. "Isn't is beautiful?" while another less en-
thusiastic 'spectator merely grimaced and muttered, "uuh."
Air pockets in the structure's base and an innefective pumping
