NEW YORK - (A) - Leftist
"Peace" marchers - banned from'
heavily-guarded Union Square -
defiantly clashed with police yes-'
terday in a tense, noisy brawl.
An estimated 2,000 marchers
formed ranks amid thousands of
home-going workers at the height
of the rush hour.
"We want peace-open up the
square," they cried.
MOUNTED POLICE charged
their ranks and scattered them
but they reformed again and again
as the brawl swirled through the
streets of downtown Manhattan.
A 1,000-man police detail -
stationed like an army ground
the Square - spent an hour
breaking up the demonstration.
Fists flew at times and several
injurieswere reported. At least one
window was smashed.
Thirteen of the marchers were
arrested, most of them charged
with disorderly conduct or assault.
DRIVEN AWAY from Union

York soap box oratory-some of
the marchers still. were shouting
slogans as they fell back south as
far as 11th Street, three blocks

An estimated 10,000 persons
making their way peacefully
along sidewalks in the Union
Square area were thrown into a
turmoil by the fighting.

THE NEW YORK Labor Confer-
ence for Peace, which sponsored
the forbidden rally, later released
the text of a telegram it said was
sent to Mayor William O'Dwyer.
It charged that police clubbed
the marchers, adding: "Mr. Mayor,
it was quite a spectacle of brutal-
ity and blood."
The New York Labor Conference
for Peace originally scheduled the
"peace rally" to protest the atom
bomb and to call for mediation in
Korea. But the police refused them
a permit for the rally.

ond group, they may have to dig
deep into the lower age brackets.
Most of the initial group that
left yesterday were 24-year-olds
and 25-year-olds, since Selective

centrate on older draftable men.
To State Panel
Prof. Carl Buck of the School
of Public Health was named yes-
terday to an fl-member advisory
panel to give Michigan's health
agencies the once over.
Appointment of the panel, which
will use methods similar to those
of the Hoover Commission, was
announced in Lansing by a legis-
lative committee on government

that way, Acheson's attitude ap-
peared to be this in short: he feels
any loan to Spain ought to be
handled in the regular way; that
Congress ought not to tie the
hands of government agencies in
negotiations with Spain by direct-
ly ordering a loan.
* * *
ACHESON DID say he is not
opposed to the principle of a loan
to Spain if it is economically jus-
tifiable and a good credit risk.
He recalled, however, that in
his last comprehensiversummary
of American policy toward Spain
last Jan. 18, he noted there were
a number of economic barriers
to such a loan.
These obstacles, he said, are in
the power of the Spanish govern-
ment to correct.
The Senate loan proposal will
have to go before the House, which
could knock it out of the bill.
Chi Minh Men
Train in China
ficial French sources said yester-
day three camps have been open-
ed in Communist China to train
troops of the Communist-led
Viethminh army, which is fight-
ing French forces in Indochina.
The informants gave this ac-
count. The training centers, near
the Northern Indochina frontier,
are located at Wenshan, Tchenn-
gan and Tunghing.
At least 10,000 Vietminh soldiers
are in the three camps, some of
them having been sent there last
May. The camps are used not only
to drill and equip raw recruits but
to give advanced commando
training for soldiers of Commu-
nist chieftain Ho Chi Minh.

experts are not found soon to

Keith Beers, summer president
of Student Legislature, which

sued an urgent call for experts
in 15 unfilled fields.
THE MOST important of these
are business administration, chem-
istry, economics, history, physics,
zoology and Army ROTC. Experts
are also needed in astronomy, bo-
tany, forestry, fine rats, geogra-
phy, German, philosophy, and

Experts will not only be re-
warded with that feeling of im-
portance which comes with giv-
ing advice, but will also be en-
titled to register early.
The experts are to meet on
Sept. 19 at 8:30 a.m. in Rm. 25
Angell Hall. They will be on the
job from 9 a.m. to noon and from
1 to 4 p.m. Sept. 19 and 20 in
the same room.

Romans compare with the Ameri-
cans of 1938-39 and Greece with
Europe of the 1930's, with small
states continually at war, a work-

liances, and united solely by a com-
Of the five major powers which
Rome (the U. S.) faced, both
Greece under Philip (Germany un-
der Hitler) and Syria under Anti-
ochus (Russia under Stalin) had
expanded swiftly and were rumor-1
ed to have allied to conquer Egypt,
(Poland),ea move opposed by the
two trading nations, Rhodes and.
Pergamum (Britain and France).
When Rhodes and Pergamum
went to war against Philip they
realized that they alone werea
unequal to the task, and much'
like their counterparts in 1941,
sent ambassadors to the power-
ful Rome (the U.S.).
Under Roman law, Rome could
fight only defensive war, so an
ultimatum was sent to Philip and
when he failed to acknowledge its
existence, Rome considered her-
self insulted and justified in "de-
Meanwhile Antiochus was paci-
fied and temporarily forgotten.
When Philip was defeated,
although the "liberated" Greek
cities were declared free, occu-
pation troops left two years la-
ter and Rome still pulled the
strings and expected alliegance.
The Romans then realized that
Antiochus (Stalin, remember)
was still a threat (the point at
which the U. S. is now) and tried
to limit his expansion into Thrace
(China), but his promises to the
disgruntled lower classes increas-
ed his power until Rome went in-
to battle against him and in 188
he was defeated.
* * *
PROF. STARR then carried the
startling analogy into the future,
declaring that Rome's uncertain
policy toward post-war Greece
(now,Western Europe) involved
her so deeply into international
quarrels that in 146 B. C. she was
forced to conquer Greece, thus
completing the cycle of liberation,
domination, conquering, and sub-
"And the result was that Rome
became so large that her system
of democracy could not work and
she became a dictatorship under
Augustus," Prof. Starr added.
