TOKYO ()-Communist North
Korea said yesterday the crew and
passengers of a captured airliner
will be allowed to return if Presi-
dent Syngman Rhee of South Ko-
rea will negotiate for their release.
The broadcast from the North
Korean capital of Pyongyang thus
put the pfessure on the aged Rhee
who has steadfastly refused to
recognize the Red regime or ne-
gotiate with it.
The Communists have claimed
the Korean National Airline plane
with its two United States pilots
and 32 other persons flew volun-
tarily to North Korea Sunday.
KNA said Red agents aboard the
plane kidnaped it.
Want to Return
The Pyongyang broadcast ad-
mitted that there are some who
desire to return.
After saying those who wanted
to would be allowed to go back
to South Korea, Pyongyang hedged
this way: "Our side has already
made it clear if the South Korean
authorities really want to realize
the hope of those desiring to re-
turn home it is proper that they
should directly approach the gov-
ernment 6f the Democratic Peo-
ple's Republic of Korea for this"
The fate of those who want to
return to the South, the broadcast
said, hinges entirely upon the at-
titude of Syngman Rhee.
Reds Will Press
North Korea's demand for nego-
tiations aroused speculation that
the Communists would use any
conference to press their proposal
for withdrawal of United Ntions
troops from South Korea and uni-
fication of the country through
elections suervised by so-called
South Korea, the United States
and other allies in Korea have re-
jected this plan. They say North

ly was found at the KNA office at
Pusan: It was said to contain a
piece of paper on which threaten-
ing English phrases were written.
Low-freshman enrollment, fi-
nancial difficulties and a decreas-

cited as causes for the low num-
ber of men rushing fraternities
Fewer men signed up for rush-
ing this semester than last spring,
according to the Interfraternity
Council, but this is "no cause for
alarm," officials said.
Mal Cumming, '59BAd, execu-
tive vice-president of IFC, said
he could not explain why fewer
rushed but he felt there is "no
significant trend" in the drop.
Only about 500 men signed up
with the IFC to rush this semes-
ter as compared tolmore than 600

Authority to raise $2,000,000 for the Michigan Memorial Phoenix
Project was given to the University Development Council by the
University Board of Regents yester day.
The money, tobe expended over a five-year period beginning

peacetime uses of atomic energy.
The Regents also specified that funds for designated research
purposes in addition to these funds to be used as specified by the
They also approved the establishment of a governing board for
the Phoenix Project. The board will include 14 members, divided be-

Wolverine goalie Ross Childs,
previously sharing the goaltend-
ing honors of the league with
Gopher net minder John McCar-
tan, had the most goals scored
upon him of his college career.
Gophers Score First
The first 11 seconds of the
game was a good example of what
remained. Right at the face off
the better conditioned and more
poised Gophers put on tremen-
dous pressure and Dick Burg in-
tercepted a pass from Bob Watt
and cleanly beat Childs.
This was just one of many
Wolverine defensive lapses, which
were so apparent all evening.
Time after time, mistakes by
Watts and Hayton set up the
Gophers for their scores.
In fact, during the third period,
when the score was already 8-4,
Michigan Coach Al Renfrew put
Bob White into the defensive'
ranks to help bolster both the
defensive work, and the scoring

Putting the blame for seller's
inflation on both the wage earners
and profit makers, Prof. Lerner
outlined a regulatory proposal.
?oints covered in his proposal
were: (1) price increases should be
permitted only when production
and sales are at capacity; (2) price
decreases should be enforced
"whenever production and sales'
are significantly below capacity;"j
and (3) wage increases in general
should be permitted "at a rate
equal to the average trend of in-
creases in national productivity."
"Wages should rise less, or not,
be permitted to rise at all," Prof.
Lerner continued, "wherever the
volume of unemployment is higher
than the national average. Con-
versely, wages should be allowed
to rise considerably more rapidly
than the national average increase
