first execution under martial law
imposed last Sunday.
Janos Soldesz was sentenced to
death and immediately executed
after his conviction at Miskolc on
r a charge of hiding arms.
Another man was sentenced to
death but the court recommended
the sentence be commuted.
The government made no move
toward releasing two workers'

down strikes by thousands of men
Thursday and Friday.
Reporters Charged
Two Western correspondents,
Eric Waha of the Associated Press
and Richard Kilian of the London
Daily Express, were ordered to
leave Hungary before tomorrow.
Waha, a 32-year-old Austrian,
was accused of encouraging work-
ers to strike, and Kilian,29 years
old, an American whose mother
lives in New York City, of failing
to adhere to regulations applying
to foreign newsmen.
Waha denied the charges, and
both me expressed belief the ex-
pulsion was actually ordered by
Soviet occupation headquarters,
which takes a dim view of report-
ing activities by Western news-

action to limit activities of Rich-

representative of the University
of Michigan. I'm delighted that
he's going, not only for his own
sake, but as a University of Mich-

Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis said, "I
can't think of a person better
equipped for it, or who would get
more out of or give more to the
Rhodes Scholarship."

Mrs. Ethel Csomoss began walking from Pilizentivan, Hungary,
last October 27 with her aline-year-old son Zoltan.
She trusted only two people in the town of 3,000 well enough
to tell them where she was going-to Austria. Zoltan's best friend
cried when he learned he would never see his companion again.
They packed only two utility bags for their journey-one change
of clothes for each of them. In Piliszentivan they abandoned a com-
pletely furnished house.

Pact Vigor
WASHINGTON (tP) -President
Dwight D. Eisenhower and Sec-
retary of State John Foster Dulles
yesterday hailed what they called
"renewed evidence of vigor and
unity" in the Atlantic Alliance.
They held that this unified
strength is being displayed in the
face of "difficulties and dangers"
-apparently dangers arising from
the upheavals against Soviet dom-
I ination in Eastern Europe.
Dulles spent an hour and 40
minutes reporting to the Presi-
dent immediately after he re-
turned here by air from Paris.
NATO Conferences
In that city he held a week of
conferences with Allied foreign
ministers at a meeting of the

In connection with this decision
it is reported that the United
States is planning to cut the

divisions by about 4,000 men each
over the next two years or so.
Dulles' Statement
In a statement at the White
House after his meeting with the
President, Dulles referred to the
military modernization move.
He said the NATO Council had
"directed a fresh military study,
which would take account of mod-
ern weapons, available resources
and the cooperative sharing of
burdens and responsibilities."
He also emphasized that the 151
nations comprising the anti-Com-
munist alliance had agreed on
plans for "a more thorough-going
system of consultation" and for
promoting "the peaceful settle-
ment" of future disputes among
the member countries.

GRAB THAT BALL-Michigan's Randy Tarrier grabs a rebound
in the fourth quarter of the Wolverine victory over Butler.
Cagers Edge Butler, 84-77;
Late Surge Brings Victory
It took superior size and a 27-point splurge by sophomore George
Lee to do it, but Michigan's scrappy basketball team finally subdued
red-hot Butler, 84-77, last night at Yost Field House.
Catching fire in the latter portion of the second half, the
Wolverines called on superior rebounding and some fancy shooting
to overcome a six-point Butler advantage.
Sink Free Throws
Both squads were blazing from the floor. Michigan hit on 45 per
cent of its field-goal efforts, the visitors making 'good on 56 per cent,
althought shooting only 55 times

Ike Offers
Aid Increase
WASHINGTON 0P) - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower dipped into
his emergency fund for an addi-
tional four million dollars yester-
day to help care for Hungarian
refugees fleeing into Austria.
On Capitol Hill, Sen. Arthur
W a t k i n s (R-Utah) called for
broadening of the McCarran-Wal-
ter Immigration Act.
He contended this wasrnecessary
to facilitate the transfer of more
refugees to this country.,
Sen. Mike Monroney (D-Okla)
said, however, he thought Con-
gress should turn its attention to
relocating more of the refugees
closer to their former homes, where
they can help carry on the fight
against communism.
In announcing President Eisen-
hower's action, the White House
said the flight of refugees from
Hungary has continued since the
initial allocation of one million
dollars Nov. 14.I

General Protests

Michigan's hockey team turned
a slow start into a wild third
period scoring spree as it came

Changed Team.
As the Wolverines took the ice
to start the third stanza they were
behind by one goal.
Then they caught fire. To start
off, Tom Rendall dug a puck out
of the corner, controlled it beau-
tifully as he waited for a team-
mate to get into position, and
then fired to Ed Switzer in front
of the goal and Switzer flipped
it in to tie up the contest.
Just 13 seconds later, Switzer
grabbed a loose puck off Neil Mc-
Donald's stick, whirled around,
and fired hard from 15 feet to
push the Wolverines out ahead
and virtually break McGill's back.
Loose Puck
The fourth goal came at 8:57.
Don McIntosh raced around be-
hind the McGill net with the
puck, and then flipped it out to
Rendall who pushed it in at
point blank range.
