Kadar Enforces
Rigid Food Cuts
Premier Drops Power to Budapest
In Effort to End Hungarian Strike
VIENNA P)-Premier Janos Kadar's Russian-sponsored Hun-
garian government imposed harsh food and electricity controls yester-
day with the apparent aim of forcing that nation's workers to end their
paralyzing general strike.c
Budapest radio announced that until further notice no meat orl
farm produce would be delivered to the capital from the countryside.
It also said Hungary's electricity would be cut off or limited last1
Immediately after the announcement communications with Buda-1
pest were cut off.-
There was no definite word concerning the success of the Kadar
regime in smashing the general strike which followed the bloody
revolt against Russian domina-







Sigma Kappa'
} Stand Still
Sigma Kappa sorority's National
Council has made no move to
clarify its position as yet.
The only notification received
at the University came in the
form of a brief note, dated Nov.
r5, to StudentrGovernment Coun-
cil. The note, in answer to SGC's
request "to present all pertinent
information" was addressed to
Council President Bill Adams, '57-
BAd. It read:
"Thank you very much for your
letter of Oct. 15, 1956 which has
been referred to and is being con-
sidered by our National Council."
It was signed by Sigma Kappa
National Secretary-Treasurer Mar-
garet A. Taggart.
Panhel Has No Word
Panhellenic Association here has'
had no word from the National,
according to Panhel President
Carol de Bruin, '57, and neither
has the local chapter. "At least, I
assume they haven't, because I
x haven't heard anything about it,"
Miss de Bruin commented.
Barbara Busch, '57Ed, local
Sigma Kappa president, could not
be reached for confirmation.
League President Sue Arnold,
'57Ed, said, "Panhel is no doubt
discussing what to do, but they
don't have anything more to go on
than they did four weeks ago." Ac-
cording to Miss Arnold, Panhel
as yet has taken no definite stand.
IFC Will Do Nothing
Inter-Fraternity Council Presi-
dent Tim Leedy, '57, yesterday
said IFC "as a group plans to do
absolutely nothing" about the
local's position. "It's an SGC func-
tion and I'm sure they can handle
it adequately," he said.
Dec. 5, SGC will make a decision
regarding possible violation of rec-
ognition requirements for a Uni-
versity organization on the basis
of information available. The
Council has requested "all inter-
ested parties to present all per-
tinent information which they de-
sire" before that time.
University regulations will not,
permit an organization which pro-
hibits membership on the basis of
race, religion or color to be rec-
ognized officially. To keep rec-
ognition, the organization must
maintain these standards.
Sigma Kappa's status on cam-
pus is in question because of their
National's action over the summer.
At that time, the National Coun-
cil suspended chapters at Tufts
and Cornell universities, after both
chapters pledged Negro girls.

said Kadar apparently had suc-
ceeded in getting some labor lead-

this deadline appears to have been
extended to tomorrow.
Budapest radio claimed earlier
yesterday that the government's
drive to end the strike had
achieved "considerable success,"
but that "terrorist groups" were
keeping workers from their jobs
in some places.
The radio gave no indication of
the number of workers returning
to their benches. It said only that
a "large part" of the workers had
"submitted." It then appealed to
those who did not report yesterday
to return to the factories tomor-
LYL Down,
But Not Out~
On Campus
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the last
of six articles arising from a year-
long investigation of the Labor Youth
League at the University of Michigan
begun by writer Dygert when he was
Daily city editor in 1955-56. This
article summarizes the significance
of the LYL at the University and
looks to the future.)
To say that the Labor Youth
League at the University of Mich
igan is dead is not necessarily to
say that all Communist influence
on the campus has disappeared.
Although as a group, the LYL
is no more in Ann Arbor, there
are still six LYL members en-
rolled in the University and about
ten more who might be called
fellow-travelers. At least one of
them is a member of an important
student organization.
Although I know the names of
these people, as well as most of
the names of all those who at-
tended LYL meetings last year,
I am not mentioning them in this
series, nor will I ever mention
them to anyone. This series was
not intended as an expose of
individuals, but as a report and
appraisal of the LYL as a group.
The three names I have used,
Bob Schor, Mike Sharp and Paul
Dormont, have identified them-
selves as LYL members in letters
to the editor.
Furthermore, LYL members and
other extreme left-wingers are
not confined to the student body.
One LYL member is a teaching
fellow at the University.
It is quite possible that another
group will replace the LYL as the
campus' martyr. It is equally pos-
sible that the Communist Party
will establish another group to
spearhead its youth movement on
a national scale.
However, rumors are now cir-
culating (reliability undetermined)
that the Communist Party of the
United States is about to fold.
One of the possible reasons is
that even the Party in America
is experiencing difficulty in con-
tinuing to stomach the Party line,

USSR Would Limit
Plane-Checked Areas
By The Associated Press
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
yesterday ordered a careful study
of Russia's new disarmament pro-
The aim is to determine whe-
ther they offer any fresh openings
for negotiations which could end
the East-West arms race and
bring the threat of a hydrogen
war under the control of a global
disarmament program.
The proposal called for a sum-
mit conference including the Big
Four, plus India, but not Com-
munist China, at which it agreed
to discuss limited application of
President Eisenhower's "open
skies" inspection proposal.
Restricted Flights
The Russian proposal specified,
however, that planes would be re-
stricted to survey flights only 500
miles from the borders of partici-
pating countries. The Soviet Un-
ion extends half way around the
world, nearly 8,000 miles in length
and at its widest part about 2,500
The Russians, in a government
statement, also called for destruc-
tion of all H-bomb and A-bomb
stockpiles in the next two years
and an immediate ban on nuclear
As if to emphasize the point,
a Tass dispatch broadcast by
Moscow radio last night announc-
ed the Russians had carried out
a new test of a nuclear weapon
"at a great altitude."
Bohlen Sends Text
The State Department received
from Ambassador Charles E. Boh-
len in Moscow the text of the
declaration disclosed there early
yesterday. It was understood to
have been accompanied by a mes-
sage from Premier Nicolal Bul-
gani to President Eisenhower ask-
ing for its consideration in Wash-
" Moscow reported that similar
messages were sent to the prime
ministers of Britain, France, In-
dia and Communist China.
If the Western borders of Po-
land, Czechoslovakia and Hun-
gary are considered, the frontier'
of the Western aerial inspection
would barely penerate the bor-
ders of the Soviet Union iteself.
Subject To Approval
This limited inspection, the
Russians said, could- only be car-
ried out "subject to the approval
of the individual nations."
Under the plan proposed by
President Eisenhower at the Ge-
neva, summit meeting in July 1955
all military installations of the
United States and Russia would be
thrown open to aerial inspection.

than 4,000 words-much of it de-
voted to charges against the West

about the Oct. 22 suicide of James

sources would only examine this
thing, they would find that the
boy did not commit suicide by

Sterling said.j
"The public," he said, "has been
subjected to that misrepresenta-,

Contacted by telephone, Ster-

which he claimed would make it
impossible for 14-year-old Lillard
to have hanged himself in the
manner described by Juveline
Home officials.
. Sheet Ripped
"That door hinge was only one-
sixteenth of an inch long," he said,
"and the boy couldn't have folded
the sheet over it."
Last week, the Dexter super-
visor tested the strength of a
sheet hem, "as near as possible
to the other one," and found it
ripped under 100 pounds of weight.
Sterling said Lillard weighed 116
He said "There's not supposed
to be a sheet in a security room

Hungarian people in their revolt
against Communism.
Drive co-chairman Don Ken-
ney, '57L, yesterday asked the co-
operation of all student groups.
"We don't have the organization
to begin a door-to-door canvass,"
he said, "and we have to turn to
student organizations in the hope
that they'll use their own mach-
inery to ask for contributions from
individual members."
Kenney said he met yesterday
with Hungarian students, who
gave their full support to the
action. They must remain anony-
mous because they have relatives
in Budapest.
Saying that response has been
"fine" on a city level, Kenney
asked that all contributions, either
individual or group, be brought to
the Ann Arbor Bank or the State
Savings Bank.

Trial egins
Former University mathematics
instructor H. Chandler Davis will
be tried tomorrow in Federal
Court in Grand Rapids, on con-
tempt of Congress charges.
Trial will be held without jury
before Federal Judge W. Wallace
Kent, according to United States
Attorney Wendell A. Miles.
Davis, while at the University
in May, 1954, refused to answer
questions pertaining to his politi-
cal activities while testifying be-
fore the House Subcommittee on
Un-American Activities.
Shortly thereafter he was sus-
pended from the faculty and sub-
sequently discharged for refusing
to cooperate with the committee.
Most recent development in
Davis' case came in September
when Judge Kent denied a motion
to dismiss the government's 26-
count indictment, clearing the way
for tomorrow's trial.
!Davis, wbo invoked the First
Amendment at the hearings in
1954, has maintained the main
issue is whether or not a com-
mittee of Congress that sets out
to expose and publicize political
ideas is violating the First Am-

Barr Leads Attack
With Three Scores;
Kramer, Ptacek Star
Associate Sports Editor
Michigan put its offense in high
gear yesterday, ripping Indiana,
49-26, to end its 1956 home foot-
ball season.
It was a disappointing day for
the Wolverine fans,- however, as
Iowa blanked Ohio State, 6-0, to
nail down the Rose Bowl bid.
The Michigan Stadium crowd of
58,515 set a new season's atten-
dance record of 566,093, breaking
the old mark, set in the '49 season,
by almost three thousand,
Four TD's
The Wolverines broke up the
contest in the second quarter when
they added four touchdowns to a
lone first period score. Both teams
threw defense to the winds in a
wild-scoring second half.
Terry Barr led the onslaught
against the Hoosiers with three
touchdowns. Ed Shannon scored
twice and John Herrnstein and
Mike Shatusky each crossed pay-
dirt once.
Ron Kramer, one of the twelve
Wolverines playing their last game
in the Stadium, made one of his
patented "miracle" catches, booted
three extra points, and constantly
throttled the Hoosiers with bril-
liant blocking and tackling.
Michigan, capitalizing on every
Tndiana mistake and hitting with
lightning-like precision, tallied its
;four second-quarter touchdowns
in less than seven and one-half
Barr Scores
Barr capped a 73-yard march by
bucking over from the one at 3:42
of the period. The drive was high-
lighted by Kramer's breathtaking
reception of a Barr pass for 39
Soon after, Kramer intercepted
a Hoosier pass on the Indiana 35,
scooted to the 25 and laterelled to
Shannon, who brought the ball to
the six. Shannon, in two plays, ran
the remaining six yards.
Kramer kicked off and Indiana
end Norm Craft fumbled on his
18. Gary Prahst recovered, and
Shannon crossed paydirt three
plays later.
Hoosier quarterback Steve Fili-
powski, trying to generate a threat,
threw one complete pass as In-
diana started its next series of
downs, but Prahst again halted the
visitors when he intercepted a pass
on the Michigan 40 and scamper-
ed 29 yards.
Ptacek Spectacular
Michigan continued its relentless
attack, and Bob Ptacek found
Shatusky clear in the end zone
minutes later. Ptacek, incidentally,
was nothing short of spectacular
yesterday as he completed three of
six passes for 47 yards and gained
104 yards in nine rushes for an
