Will Take Action Unless
Invaders Evacuate Egypt

LONDON W)-The Soviet Union
threatened yesterday to turn the
Middle East into another Korea
while a UN international police
force hastily mustered for an at-
tempt to maintain peace.
Russia announced it would per-
mit Soviet pilots, tankmen and
artillery men and officers who
served in World War II to join
Egypt's armed forces as "volun-
teers" unless British, French and
Israeli forces withdrew from Egyp-
tian soil.
No time limit was mentioned.
'Cheap Effort'
A source close to the British
Foreign Office denounced the
U.S. Expects
Jordan Raid
Into Israel
WASHINGTON ()- A Defense
Department "spokesman said yes-
terday it would not be surprising
if "something breaks out" in the
Jordan-Israel border area in the
next few days.
The spokesman said the border
situation there is becoming "po-
tentially dangerous" while the pic-
ture in Suez grows brighter.
Jordan, long engaged in raid-
type warfare with Israel along
their common border,wasdescrib-
ed as "impetuous," ready to jump
off into full war without "thinking
through" the possibilities.
And Syria is of somewhat similar
unpredictable d is p o s i t i on, the
spokesman told newsmen.
He declined to be quoted by
While United Nations truce
forces were on the way to stabi-
lize the Suez situation, the Israeli
have been free to begin shifting
their forces to face the menace
from Jordan, Syria and other Arab
nations concentrating troops in
Jordan, it was pointed out.
The raiding operations between
the Israelis and Arabs quieted
down for a time while the war in
Suez flared up. But on the night
of Nov. 7-8, small raids were
launched into Israeli-claimed ter-
ritory along a 30-mile section of
the border.
The spokesman expressed con-
fidence in the ability of Israeli
forces to deal with any organized
attack by the Arabs, unless an-
other major power, Russia, should
move in with substantial assist-
Egypt Downs
Enemy Planes
CAIRO, Egypt V)--An Egyptian
military source said today two
enemy planes were shot down Fri-
day night while on a reconnai-
sance flight over Ismailia, the
midway town on the Suez Canal.
The informant did not identify
the planes as British, French or
And from Tel Aviv, Israel
claimed yesterday its lightning
Sinai campaign netted a vast
store of Egyptian tanks, vehicles
andtmunitionsivalued at approxi-
mately 50 million dollars.
"The arms we were unable to
get after years of pleading we got
in four days, thanks to the army,"
Mrs. Golda Meir, the Israeli for-
eign minister, told a wildly cheer-
ing meeting of the Mapai Labor
Mrs Mir delared some of the

statement as a "cheap effort" by
the Russians to pose as protectors
of the Arab world while intending
to exploit the Middle East. The
French saw it as propaganda,
since withdrawal had already been
agreed upon by the British, French
and Israelis.
The Soviet statement was issued
at about the same time as a U.S.
State Department declaration say-
ing the United States would, as
far as legally possible, bar its
citizens from volunteering on
either side in the dispute. Ap-
parently the U.S. statement was
issued in an attempt to discourage
the Soviet Union from permitting
volunteers to enter Egypt.
'Various Pretexts'
Yesterday's S o v i e t statement
virtually brushed aside the pledge
of the British, French and Israelis
to quit Egyptian-occupied terri-
tory as soon as an effective UN
international . police force takes
over. The Russians charged the
British and French with refusing

First units of the UN force were
flown to Capodichino Airport near
Naples, Italy, preparatory to leav-
ing for Egypt and the task of keep-
ing the Middle East peace. The
vanguard of that force will be on
Egyptian soil by Tuesday. Egypt
has agreed provisionally to accep-
tance of the patrol.
'Breathing Space'
The statement said the Kremlin
was concerned whether the cease-
fire agreement was a "maneuver
intended to gain time, to get a
breathing space for a still greater
accumulation of force with the aim
of renewing the aggressive war
against Egypt and the other coun-
tries of the Near East on a still
larger scale."
It went on to say that numer-
ous Soviet citizens including pilots,
tank drivers, artillery specialists
with World War II experience and
others have asked to go to Egypt

Hungary Get
UN Priority
The UN emergency Assembly yes-
terday approved overwhelmingly
twin U.S. moves to put the Middle
Eastern and Hungarian crises be-
fore the regular Assembly with
high priority tags.
The regular session begins to-
The special meeting first voted
66-0 for a resolution by U.S. Dele-
gate Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. which
made it certain the Middle East
will be considered whenever nec-
essary in the regular session.
Guatemala and Greece abstained
on that vote.
Losing little time, the Assembly
voted 53-9 to give the same status
to the Hungarian situation in the
new Assembly. The nine Soviet
bloc countries in the UN voted
against the move and eight coun-
tries abstained. The eight were
India, Greece, Egypt, Guatemala,
Yugoslavia, Yemen, Saudi Arabia
and Syria.
After these decisions the emer-
gency Assembly adjourned. Tired
delegates departed hopeful of a
breather before the 11th Assembly
convenes at 2 p.m. tomorrow. How-
ever, they could be called back
quickly if the situation becomes
worse before that hour,

Maj. Gen. E. L. M. Burns, the
Canadian who heads the new in-
ternational police force, arrived in
Jerusalem from Cairo for talks
with Egyptian leaders. He said 10
of 58 UN observers will leave Jer-
usalem for Egypt today. Burns is
expected to leave soon for New
York and new talks with UN Sec-
retary General Dag Hammarskjold.
Ike Rejects
At 'Summit'
WASHINGTON OP) - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower politely but
firmly turned down yesterday a bid
from Switzerland for a new summit
conference between the Western
Powers and Russia to deal with
the crises in the Middle East and
Eastern Europe.
The problems which threaten
world peace, the President mes-
saged Swiss President Markus
Feldmann, are now before the
United Nations and "I believe that
interests of all will best be served
by carrying these initiatives
through to a successful conclus-
Door Closed
President Eisenhower's response
to the invitation received earlier
this week did not foreclose the pos-
sibility of a summit meeting in
the future but definitely closed the
door for now.
There remains a greater possi-
bility of a meeting between Presi-
dent Eisenhower, British Prime
Minister Anthony Eden and
French Premier Guy Mollet to try
to repair the damage to relations
among the Western Big Three
caused by their split over the Brit-
ish-French attack on Egypt.
But even this prospective con-
ference is not likely to be held
soon because the President and his
advisors want to keep world at-
tention focused on the United Na-

His message to Feldmann was
released at Gettysburg where the
President spent the day.
The Swiss invitation for a new
summit meeting has received "ur-
gent and sympathetic considera-
tion here," the President said in
his message.
"I appreciate the sincerity of
the Swiss proposal," he said, "and
share the concern for the preser-
vation of peace which inspired it.
"However, the United Nations is
actively occupied with the various
problems posing a threat to world
peace and I believe that the inter-

M' Gets Revenge
For '55 Setback
Pace, Maddock, ,Herrnstein, Barr
Lead 'M' to Third Conference Win
Associate Sports Editor
Michigan out-offensed and then out-defensed a dangerous Illi-
nois football squad yesterday to score an important 17-7 victory
before 75,470 Michigan Stadium fans and climb into closer contention
for the Big Ten's Rose Bowl berth.
Not only did the Wolverines move above the .500 mark in Cor-
ference play with their third win in five games, but they also
avenged a humiliating 25-6 upset loss to the Illini in 1955.
As expected, the Illinois backfield dazzled the crowd early in
the game with its speedy running yesterday. But its offensive display
was surpassed by the slick running efforts of Michigan's Jim Pace,
John Herrnstein, Terry Barr and

Hungarian Government Lures Workers

VIENNA (P)-A puppet govern-
ment that Hungarian revolution-
aries are still battling to unseat
yesterday offered food rations as
a lure to workers to return to their
jobs and combat the twin threats
of hunger and disease in Budapest.
Heavy fighting persists and So-
viet artillery rocked the Hungar-
ian capital all Friday night, ac-
cording to a Swedish journalist
who escaped from that city to Aus-
tria. He estimated at least 20,000
persons have been killed in Buda-
pest alone since the Russians open-
ed their campaign last Sunday to
crush the freedom movement.
Fighting Desperately
"The rebels are still so strong
there that they go about Budapest
in broad daylight carryirgg their
guns," he said. "The insurgents
are fighting desperately to hold
out against the massive Russian
forces in the hope that United Na-
tions forces will still come to help
Ivy Priest Talk
Ivy Baker Priest, Treasurer of
the United States, will speak in
Hill Auditorium at 8:30 p.m. Tues-
Mrs. Priest, whose signature ap-
pears on all denominations of
paper money, will speak on the
subject "Our Monetary System."

The informant, who declined use
of his name, was one of seven
Scandinavian newsmen-six
Swedes and a Norwegian-who
made the 150-mile trip today from
Budapest to Nickelsdorf, on the
Austrian frontier, with travel
papers supplied by the Russians.
Budapest Quiet
The escaped journalists report-
ed these was no fighting in Buda-
pest when they left yesterday
But reports from other sources
last night said fighting still con-
tinued in various districts. Even
Russian - held Radio B u d a p e s t
broadcast that ruined food-shops
and warehouses still were smoking
and the death penalty had been
decdeed for arsonists and looters.
Radio Free Europe's monitors
in Munich reported, fighting be-
tween Soviet troops and rebels
continued also in resistance cen-
ters throughout the country, with
railway communications reported
at a standstill.
The food ration lure was held
out in broadcasts by the Russian-
controlled radio Budapest.
Death Penalty
At the same time, President Ist-
van Dobi issued an order invoking
the death penaltyfor such crimes
as murder, looting and arson.
While rebel fire continued in the
capital, Radio Budapest appealed
repeatedly to workers to get back

on their jobs. But only a tiny pro-
portion of them, even by official
estimate, responded.
The governmnent said each work-
er who returned would be given
a package of food, bread rations,
a bonus and an advance on his
wages. By next week, it said, they
might even have the prospect of
"a warm meal."
Fear of epidemics was evident
in the wake of three weeks of
bitter fighting. The broadcasts
urged the public to take every
precaution in the use of what
food was available, report infec-
tious diseases, burn trash and
take sanitary precautions.
Larson Given.
USIA Position
Larson, who has been called the
Republican's No. 1 egghead and
political ideologist, was named by
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
yesterday to direct this country's
vast propaganda war against com-
President Eisenhower selected
Larson, now undersecretary of la-
bor, to be director of the U.S.
Information Agency, which ope-
rates the Voice of America radio
program and other overseas "edu-
cational" projects.
Larson, a handsome, 46-year-old
former law school dean and
Rhodes scholar, is expected to
take over his new assignment in
a couple of weeks. He will succeed
Theodore C. Streibert, New York
radio executive who has resigned
for personal reasons,
As director of a worldwide, 100-
million - dollar - a - year operation
preaching the gospel of Western
democracy, Larson will receive
the same $21,000 a year he has
been getting in the Labor Depart-

Jim Maddock.
Switch to Defense
With a 14-7 lead at halftime, the
Wolverines switched emphasis to
defense and resolutely held the
Illini at bay for the rest of the
game. Ron Kramer's second field
goal in two weeks iced the victory
at 17-7 late in the final period.
Pace and Jim Byers had scored
Michigan's two second period
touchdowns to erase an early Illi-
nois lead. Two other Wolverine
scoring threats were halted within
the 20-yd. line of the Illini.
Illinois' lone touchdown came on
the first series of downs after
Michigan kicked off to open the
game. It took the men from Cham-
paign only seven plays to cover 81
yards for the tally. All but 10
of those yards were gained by the'
vaunted Illini starting halfbacks'
Dale Smith and Abe Woodson.
Smith Scores
Smith carried for the final 31.
yards around left end after taking
a pitch out from quarterback Bill
Offenbecher at 3:12. Tackle Dick
Miller's conversion proved to be
the end of Illinois' scoring for the
Pace took the ensuing kickoff
back from his 10 to the 39-yd. line'
and Michigan proceeded to move'
to the Illinois 16 before surrender-'
ing the ball on downs.
But the tide had turned. Pace,
especially, took the offensive spot-
light from Illinois' backfield speed-
merchants. Excluding the Illini
touchdown thrust, Pace's rushing
yardage just about equaled the
total output of the opponents. He
gained 120 yards, while Illinois ran
for just 128 additional yards dur-
ing the rest of the game.
Stop Illini Backs
The Wolverines completely bot-
tled up two of Illinois' most feared
runners, Bobby Mitchell and Harry
Jefferson, and held the other backs
well below their normal ground-
gaining averages.
Mitchell, who was a one-man
show against Michigan last year,
accounted for five yards and Jef-
ferson netted only one yard in
eight carries. Woodson, the Con-
ference's top runner, totaled just
57 yards for the entire game and
Smith added only 28 yards to the
55 he gained on Illinois' initial
Exactly one period after the
Illini touchdown-at the 3:11 mark
of the second quarter, Michigan
evened the count. Paced dived over
left guard to climax a 98-yd, as-
sault that featured the return to
action of right halfback Terry
A severe ankle injury had limited
Barr to a token appearance last
week against Iowa, but yesterday
he stayed in long enough to pick
up 41 yards on five carries and to
bolster the Michigan defense
through much of the first three
Herrnstein Aids

Football Win
The weatherman provided a per-~
fect football afternoon, cold and'
nippy with a strong sun, Univer-.
sity ROTC units combined with
the band to put on a colorful half-*
time show, and -the football team
rounded out a good day with a
convincing victory.
All the tradition that accomn-
panies Michigan football was pres-
ent yesterday afternoon with one
exception-no one announced the
Slippery Rock score.
To compensate, the dog that
manages to make a dashing goal-
line stand each week appeared
After three weeks of making
fools out of themselves side-line
do-gooders left the dog alone.
He trotted off the field at 7:50 in,
the second quarter. A brief ap-
pearancein the third quarter was
so unimpressive the referees didn't
even call time.
For the firsttime this year
scarves and overcoats were needed.
As part of the attempt to keep
warm many rooters replaced their
cider bottles with hip flasks.
The half-time show was color-
ful but for many the panoramic
effect of unfurling the gigantic
40 by 80 foot American flag to the
"Battle Hymn of The Republic"
(three times in two years) is
Fans went wild over what is
probably the Band's most popular
dance, "St. Louis Blues." rW

Most impressive display at half-
time was the USA formed by
Michigan's ROTC units inside a
shield of bandsmen. Army tan
formed the "U", Navy blue-black
formed the " I" and the "A" was
taken care of by Air Force blue.
Michigan fans screamed en-
thusiastically when the loudspeak-
er announced, in the third quarter,
that Iowa was leading Minnesota.
Although there was no repeat
of last year, when every Michigan
touchdown brought wild chants of
"Rose Bowl, Rose Bowl, here we
come," a few fans talked in low
tones of California vacations.
