Soviet Veto
Cannot Stop
Could Stop UN
On Other Attacks
x gates in the United Nations say
a Soviet veto cannot stop the
U.N. war efort against invading
Communist North Koreans now,
but could frustrate the Security
Council if the Communists start
trouble anywhere else.
If a new Communist outbreak
occurs and the Russians block
the Council by a veto, the West will
go promptly to the General As-
sembly for collective action.
U.N. DIPLOMATS have waited
vainly this week for Soviet Depu-
ty Foreign Minister Jakob A. Ma-
lik to show just why he returned
to the Security Council last Tues-
day after a half-year boycott. He
did introduce a two-point peace
program for Korea, but the view
of some diplomats is that he came
back really to isolate the United
States from its allies in the U.N.
However, they still are waiting to
be sure of the real reason for
interrupting the boycott.
* An American spokesman gave
this sizeup:
This country will continue to
oppose Malik's attempt to invite
the Communist North Koreans
to the Council table. Most mem-
bers take the attitude that you
cannot discuss a settlement with
a firebug and that inviting the
North Koreans here to talk
about a peaceful settlement
would be like asking to tea a
man who had burned down your
front porch.
The issue beyond all doubt is
the refusal of the North Koreans
to obey the cease-fire and with-
drawal order laid down by the Se-
curity Council June 25, the day
the war started.

Havens Hall Destruction

With the demise of Haven Hall went another Michigan

But there are plenty of traditions left around, as a

Morrill, Council president said.
Once a man is in the army or

the University gave to all taverns

The Arboretum is a tradition for

can ignore the old myth "Four out

Ready To Be
Torn Down
The Shartzer Wrecking Co.,
currently tearing down Haven
Hall, will expand its operations
on Monday to include 109 year-
old Mason Hall.
University Hall also will be razed
upon completion 'of the Mason

torn down to make room for a
new literary college building which
will be built in the area around
the site of the two buildings.

In order to complete the demo-

Remove Old
Daily Press
The old "flat bed" press that has
been turning out issues of the
Daily since 1921 will be dismantled1
and removed from the Student
Publications Building forever, to-
morrow in order to make room for
the new "rotary" press, slated for
installation later this summer.
Lauren Kinsley, who has been
operating the press foreover 25
years will be sorry to see it go,
though he's anxious to work on a
different model. He started out as
a helper, oiling the old machine
when it was still in the Ann Arbor

man he went along with it when
it moved to its present home in
the Student Publications Building
in 1931.
Though he has been with the
press all these years he has
never considered giving it any
fond nick name, nor can he re-
call any amusing incidents in
which it was involved. According
to Kinsley it's all work.
Others who will regret, seeing
the old machine removed are The
Daily editors, who will be com-
pelled to move up their deadline
one hour, because the paper will
be printed in Plymouth for the last
week of publication.
THE OLD PRESS is not destined
to become scrap for many years.
It has been sold to the Lapeer
County Press, a weekly paper, and
the men in the shop think that
after being set up again, it will be
good for another twenty or thirty
years. While publication was for-
merly limited to eight pages, the
new rotary will be able to print a
twelve page paper, at the rate of
25,000 copies per hour.
Purchase of the new $68,000
press was approved last Janu-
ary by the Board in Control of
