U.S. Claims
Russia Stalls
UN Majority
Soviet Malik May
Face Suspension
LAKE SUCCESS -(P)- The
United States last night accused
e the Soviet Union of obstructing
the majority's will on the Korean
question, and said the Security
Council will be stalled all this
month - until Jakob A. Malik
gives up the presidency Sept 1 -
if these tactics continue.
The possibility arose that Ma-
lik may face suspension as Coun-
cil President. Ernest A. Gross,
U.S. delegate, told reporters this
is one of several things that might
be discussed in consultations be-
fore the Council meets again to-
morrow. Gross said the Council
by majority vote, with the veto
not applying, could change its
rules with the effect Malik would
be unseated. It would be a pro-
cedural 'vote.
WARREN ,. AUSTIN, chief
U.S. delegate, told the Council:
"It must be apparent to all of
us and to the world that the So-
viet representative, who under our
BRUSSELS-(I)-T h e Bel-
gian government joined the At-
lantic Pact rearmament drive
yesterday with a proposal to
raise its defense budget by 5,-
000,000,000 francs ($100,000,000).
Premier Jean Duvieusart told
a grave and silent Chamber of
Deputies the government has de-
cided to raise total defense
spending by that much for the
period expiring at the end of
1951.
rules of procedure is acting as
President of the Security Coun-
il this month, will not abide by
our rules of procedure or by the
expressed will of this Council.
"The record shows that he
has made every effort to stop
our work and keep us from our
business. If his campaign of
obstruction goes on, it can lead
to only one consequence. The
Security Council will be stalled
on dead center for the remain-
der of this month unable to dis-
charge its responsibility under
the charter of keeping the peace.
This is the challenge we must
meet.
"I am reluctant to conclude that
the Soviet government intends to
achieve this result."
* * *
AUSTIN SUGGESTED that the
Council adjourn 48 hours "in order
to allow the Soviet delegation to
communicate with Moscow and
obtain instructions from their
government, instructions which
Iwill enable the Security Council
to function."
Malik threw back an Austin
charge of "obstruction," arguing
the United States has delayed the
Council's proceedings in a week-
long wrangle, ever since Malik took
the presidency, over procedure on
the Korean question.
The Council accepted Austin's
recommendation, and adjourned
until 1 p.m. (CST), tomorrow.
No Japanese
In Army Yet
WASHINGTON -- (P) - Gen.
Douglas MacArthur expressed

doubt today that there is any way
to enlist Japanese in the U. S.
Armed Forces without first mak-
ing a peace treaty with their
country.
Whether he would favor such a
move after a formal peace settle-
ment the general did not say.
Japan is "under international
controll," MacArthur pointed -it
in a cable to Senator Magnuson
(D-Wash) who had proposed that
Japanese veterans be accepted as
volunteers. In such circumstances,
he said, such action by the United
States alone would be "of doubt-
ful feasibility."

RAISING THE ROOF-Noises coming from the tot) of 109-year-
old Mason Hall aroused Angell Hall classes yesterday as work-
men began ripping off the roof of the oldest building on campus
as a preliminary to making room for the new $3,500,000 literary
college addition to Angell Hall.
AEC Manager Quits
In Split With Chairman
WASHINGTON - (A') - Carroll Wilson, General Manager for the
Atomic Energy Commission ever since that civilian agency took over
from the Army, quit yesterday in an explosive split with AEC Chair-
man Gordon Dean.
Wilson issued a statement saying he lacked the "confidence" in
Dean necessary to do the job properly. He questioned the Chairman's
experience and qualifications to head the huge task of developink
atomic energy for war and peace.
WILSON'S INTENTION to quit, effective next Tuesday, first be-
came known when the White House released an exchange of letters
between him and President Tru-'

Stricter Spy
Laws Asked
By Truman
Urges Action on
Enemy Aliens ,
WASHINGTON-()-President
Truman yesterday asked Congress
for immediate action on stricter
laws to deal with spies and de-
portable aliens, but even as he
made the request he warned:
"We must not be swept away
by a wave of hysteria."
In a 3,500-word message, Tru-
man reminded Congress that, in
addition to armed aggression,
"Communist imperialism also seeks
to weaken and overthrow free na-
tions by working within their bor-
ders."
* * *
THEREFORE, he said, Congress
should pass these laws before the
close of the present session:
1. Extend the statute of limita-
tions for peacetime espionage. At
present, a violator of this law
mus be prosecuted within three
years. Mr. Truman thinks that is
not long enough, and should be
extended.
2. Require persons who have re-
ceived instructions on spying or
subversive tactics from a 'foeign
govenment o political party to reg-
ister under the foreign agents reg-
istration act.
3. Give the President additional
power to set up security rules for
the protection of military bases
and other national defense instal-
lations.
4. Permit the Attorney General
to supervise aliens subject to de-
portation, and make them report
where they are and what they are
doing.
Truman's message was read'to
the Senate just before it was
scheduled to ate on an anti-
Communist bill and another
measure relating to internal se-
curity.
The bills were among the 222
on the consent calendar. Under
Senate rules, one objection can
block consideration of a calendar
bill.

KOREA--(P)-American assaults
against the North Korean Chongn-
yang beachhead, southwest of Tae-
gu, were halted yesterday by re-
inforced Communist troops.
By The Associated Press
TOKYO - The Korean Com-
munists today shoved tanks and
troops across the Naktong River
only 12 air miles northwest of
Taegu as the entire river defense
line erupted in heavy fighting.
The greatest threat yet to the
key communciations hub came as
Americans launched a general at-
tack against a Communist bridge-
head to the southwest. Counterat-
tackingSouth Koreans hammered
the Communists back to the ri-
ver's east bank at spots northwest
of Taegu.
.ON THE KOREAN south coast,
beyond the flaming Naktong Ri-
ver line, U. S. Marines and Army
Infantry got their offensive roll-
ing again toward Chinju.
An Eighth Army Communique
today said these westward-
thrusting Americans had gain-
ed two to three miles against
determined resistance.

man. This correspondence did not
disclose the reasons for the resig-
nation, which Truman said he had
"no alternative" but to accept.
The Commission referred ques-
tioners to an AEC statement, is-
sued ahead of Wilson's blast, say-
ing the AEC "deeply regrets the
loss of Wilson's services". and as-
serting:
"The organization is fully pre-
pared for the demands of its ex-
panding program."
The Commission announced that]
Carleton Shugg, who has been Wil-
son's deputy, will be acting Gen-1
eral Manager.
Wilson's blast at Dean found lit-,
tle support on Capitol Hill, at least,
immediately. Senator McMahon,
(D-Conn.), Chairman of the Joint
Senate-House Atomic Committee,
announced that the committee had
unanimously authorized him to
"express its confidence" in Dean.
Broadcast on
M'Artliur Cost
Job -- Roberts
LOS ANGELES-(P)--A broad-
cast about his 1947 interview with
Gen. Douglas MacArthur cost
newscaster Clete Roberts his job
as director of public affairs at
station KMPC, he testified yester-
day.
He was a witness at an FCC'
hearing on applications of G. A.
Richards for license renewals for
his stations, KMPC here, WJR
Detroit, and WGAR, Cleveland.
Richards is accused of ordering
news broadcasts slanted.
ROBERTS said that on Richards'
orders he went to Tokyo in 1947
to interview MacArthur.
Returning from the interview,
which was not for publication,
he was summoned to Richards'
Palm Springs home for a report,
the witness said.
Roberts said he told Richards
he doubted if MacArthur could
stand up under the physical rig-
ors of a political campaign and
Richards seemed disappointed.
After he later broadcast a re-

Marines Will
Pace Call-Up
'To Meet Need
WASHINGTON-()--The Ma-
rine Corps announced yesterday
that its call-up of volunteer re-
serves will be paced to meet ex-
pansion requirements.
A Marine Corps statement said
that reservists to receive orders to
report between August 15 and Oc-
tober 31 will be mainly officers
of captain's rank and below and
enlisted men of sergeant's grade
and below, with combat type spe-
cialties.
The statement was described as
"an amplification" of announce-
ment on calling up reserves. It
said "very few senior officers and
senior enlisted men" will be call-
ed in the first phase.
Only a few women Marines will
be summoned to active duty ini-
tially, the Corps stated. They will
be called as required to meet the
general expansion of the Corps
and to release males for the oper-
ating forces.
The Corps spokesman said that
the results obtained from the first
call for 50,000 volunteer reservists
would govern, to an extent, the
mobilization schedule for the ap-
proximately 30,000 remaining re-
servists.
"We don't know how many men
we will actually get on this first
call," a spokesman said, "but we
need 50,000." He added that the
call to active duty would eventu-
ally go to all of the volunteer re-
serves.'

Status Will Be
Decided_ Today
'U' Committee Ends
Suspension of Group
Temporary suspension of the
campus chapter of Young Pro-
gressives has ended but the future
status of the group will not be
made public until late today.
The Student Affairs Commit-
tee yesterday made recommenda-
tions to the University Sub-Com-
mittee on Student Discipline, af-
ter a two-hour hearing in which
representatives of the Progressives
spoke.

tee which is charged by the
Board of Regents with respon-
sibility.
However, Dean of Students
Erich A. Walter said that the dis-
ciplinary sub-committee will prob-
ably conclude its action today.
* * *
THE YOUNG Progressives had
previously been suspended as a
recognized student organization,
pending an explanation by their
officers of the "circumstances" of
the Progressives' meeting of July
24.
This meeting was announced as
an "open forum" on the Korean
situation, although the Progres-
sives had received permission to
hold a membership meeting.
Dean Walter said that the
S t u d e n t Affairs Committee
which is the student-faculty
committee governing student af-
fairs, also discussed other mat-
ters with the Progressive leaders
in yesterday's hearing.
The SAC had suspended the
Young Progressives pending a
hearing. The suspension was au-
tomatically lifted as soon as the
hearing was held.

"Th Great Adventure," a comic
English drama will open a four
night run at 8 p.m. today at the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Keeping the plot from public
view, the actors have banded to-
gether to keep the surprise twist
in the third act a deep secret.
* * *
ALL THAT can be told is that
the story revolves about the at-
tempts of an English painter to
escape fame, fortune and publicity
by allowing himself to be mistaken
for his valet.
To fit better into his disguise,
however, the painter allows his
dead valet a magnificent funeral
-befitting a great artistic talent
-to which people from miles
around come to view the man
who "could create so much with
canvas and a few daubs of
paint," as one of the art lovers
blithely puts it.
The cast is made up of a group
of highly experienced actors. Most
of them are well-known to Ann
Arbor audiences, but Warren Pick-
ett who takes the male lead has
not appeared in a starring role
before.
HIS MAIN specialty is Shakes-
pearian character acting, and he
was rated as a supreme success as
Iago at Olivet College.
Norma Stolzenbach, who plays
Honoronia, a bumptious pseudo-
sophisticate is from the Univer-
sity of Toledo, where she head-
ed the drama department during
the war, and is currently in
charge of the radio department
there in addition to her teaching.
Janet, a widow, will be played by
Gloria Gene Moore.
Others in the cast will includE

Jennette Grandstaff, Norris Winer,
Ted Heusel, Arthur Flemings, Lar-
ry Johnson, Robert Hawkins, Rich-
ard Burgwin, James A. Sargent,
James Briley and William Hadley.
Costumes for the play are under
the direction of Lucy Barton from
the University of Texas, and are
from the collection of the speech
department which has been gath-
ered from Ann Arbor matrons. The
set was constructed and designed
by Alex Wycoff from a New York
set-designing firm.
All performances begin at 8 p.m.
and tickets are on sale at the Men-
delssohn box office open. from 10
a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
Extra Controls
Given Truman'
WASHINGTON - (P) - The
House Banking Committee agreed
yesterday to give President Tru-
man standby wage and price con-
trol powers and then recessed over
night without getting around, to
a vote on similar rationing author-
ity.
Committee members predicted
quick approval of the standby ra-
tioning provision today in its drive
for a formula to get Congress off
the economic controls merry-go-
round it rode last week.
* * *
THE SECTIONS approved yes-
'terday went into the economic leg-
islation on a 21 to 1 vote. Rep.
Kunkel (Rep.-Pa.) cast the only
opposing ballot.
The Committee hopes to getj
out a completed bill in time for
a final House vote today. The
group will meet again before
e the House convenes.

SPEECH DEPARTMENT PLAY:
Great Adventure Opens
Tonight at Lydia

The gravest menace to Taegu,
55 miles northwest of the all-im-
portant suppl-y port of Pusan, was
at Waegwan. There the Commu-
nists got 10 tanks and a battalion
of troops across in a dawn haze
today and set up strong roadblocks
behind the U. S. First Cavalry
Division.
FIVE OF THE tanks were re-
ported knocked out but the Com-
munists. still had five tanks and
perhaps 2,500 men on the east
bank at a point where a main
highway curves 16 miles to Taegu.
Some 1,600 North Koreans earlier
had been reported across the river
at Waegwan.
Waegwan immediately was
designated as the to, priority
target for the U. S. Fifth Air
Force.
The First Cavalry shot out pa-
trols into the haze-draped area
as soon as the dawn crossing was
reported. By the time they made
contact the tanks were coming
c ei. Associated Press Correspon-
dent Leif Erickson, reporting the
action at Eighth Army Headquar-
ters, said how the tanks got across
was not determined immediately.
CORRESPONDENT O. H. P.
King on the Naktong River front
said that fresh American rein-
forcements jumped off at 5:45
a.m. on the Communist bridge-
head west of Changnyong, 23 miles
southwest of Taegu.
O t h e r American elements
which had been containing an
estimated 2,500 to 3,000 North
Koreans joined in the general
attack.
Sharp artillery fire and heavy
air strikes supported the Ameri-
can drive to push the Commu-
nists back to the west bank of
the Naktong.
ABOUT 40 MILES farther north,
the South Korean First Division
slammed a strong counterattack
last night at three Communist
regiments threatening Taegu from
the northwest.*
ON THE SOUTHERN front,
field dispatches credited a batta-
lion of the Army's Fifth Regimen-
tal Combat Team from Hawaii
with a four-mile advance.
The American offensive in the
south -- after gains ranging
four to ten miles - ground to
a halt some 10 to 12 miles east
of Chinju, springboard f o r

Political Dictionary Presents Many Problems

gressive Party which was formed
to run him for Presid-nt in 943.

"When linguistics researchers at
Ohio State University decided to
compile a dictionary of political

we'd taken on," Prof. Hans Sper-

an American book, which, after
