Dogs Keep City Police Busy
By GAYLE GREENE
It's a dog's day for dogs every
day in Ann Arbor, according to
At least three or four calls are
received daily from people com-
plaining of dogs biting, scratching,
snapping, straying or barking.
But reports from fraternities,
where the large majority of cam-
pus dogs are kept, indicate that
there is no basis for complaint
with one exception.'
"YOU CAN TAKE our collie,
Amber Shadow, if you want her,"
Bob McPhee of Theta Delta Chi
offered. "She's kind of dumb,
barks all the time and especially
dislikes uniformed men carrying
packages. She has bitten the laun-
dry man twice," he added.
Every other house questioned
had nothing but praise for its

looks viperous and ugly," she ad-
mitted, "but he's calm as a

ly, arises when he is "viciously at-

cots of other fraternities, accord-

FROM GERMANY a new type
of exchange visitor, Landa Von
Lahtenberg, German shepherd, has
come to the Tau Delta Phi house,
where she observes the scheduled
study hours, reports Ed Smith, '54.

the visiting staff of the educa-
tion school, alumni of Trigon,

summer calls their dalmatian.

"If there have been complaints
it must have been about someone
else's dog." Chuck Stowe, '51 of
Phi Kappa Sigma said. "Our dach-
shund, Kapper, doesn't bite, bark,
shed, orscratch the furniture. The
disturbance must come from un-

share of dog troubles and have
been registering their complaints
through the editorial pages of
their local newspapers.
Some of the suggestions they
have offered for solving the canine
problem have been fining owners
who refuse to train their dogs, a

out between 9 p.m., and 7 a.m. and
a luxury tax on dogs and their

the boxer complained.
U. S. Wants
ted States is seeking a Korean
armistice agreement which would
establish a buffer zone along the
present battle line-mostly north
of the 38th parallel.
This was indicated in a question
and answer exchange at Secretary
of State Acheson's news confer-
ence yesterday. Acheson also en-
dorsed fully Gen. Matthew B.
Ridgway's demand on the Com-
munists that Korean truce talks
must be resumed in a completely
neutral zone with free access for
negotiating teams of both sides.
* * *
IN DISCUSSING the present
disruption of the talks-which of-
ficials here hope may be resumed
shortly-Acheson declined to go
beyond what Ridgway, the U.N.
commander, h a s already said
about the conduct of the Com-
Specifically he declined to com-
ment or re-state in his own words
a charge by the Voice of America
that the Communists had shown
"bad faith" before the talks were
interrupted and that this in fact
caused the interruption.
Acheson, did say, however,
that performance is the test of
the Reds' attitude and that the
world will be able to judge by
their performance what they in-
tend to do.
The 38th parallel issue came into
the news conference discussion
when Acheson was reminded that
the Communists had published
their requirements for an armis-
tice agreement including estab-
lishment of a buffer zone along
the 38th parallel boundary be-
tween North and South Korea. He
was asked what the opposing
American demands are but de-
clined to say.
While his comments were care-
fully restrained, the Voice of Am-
erica struck out hard at the Com-
munists, aiming its blows in part
at Premier Stalin on the apparent
theory that he is responsible ul-
timately for what happens. It
"Do you want the shooting, the
killing, in Korea to stop or do you
want it to continue?"
The voice-the State Depart-
ment's radio to overseas-said the
Communist "buildup of 500,000
troops in Manchuria" and "the
1,000-plane air forcebeing as-
sembled in Red China" are proof
of bad faith.
Holes in Price
ous House shot new holes in the
Administration's economic con-
trols bill yesterday.
By a vote of 92 to 39, the cham-
ber rejected President Truman's
request for unlimited authority to
set up new Federal corporations to
spur defense production or assist
in control measures.
Once again the Republicans
took the lead in blasting away at
the already tattered controls mea-
sure. A few Democrats joined
Rep. Crawford (R-Mich.) told
the House that the requested
authority would take away the
right of Congress to control the
"chicaneries" of any new govern-
ment agencies which the President
might see fit to create.
Ur.4er the corporations control
act, passed several years ago, only
Congress itself can charter new
agencies such as the commodity
credit corporation, which supports
farm prices, or the home owners

sion days to aid hard-pressed
The vote came on an amend-
ment by Rep. Hardy (D-Va.)
striking the proposed power out
of the new bill.
UNDER WATER-The business district of Marion, Kansas, city of 2,100, is shown with the Cotton-
wood River running down its Main Street. Swollen by a four inch rain fall overnight, the river
swept into the city for the third time in a month. The worst flood in Kansas' history has already
caused more than $300,000,000 damage.

Governor Adlai E. Stevenson
told a news conference in Spring-
field that he was considering re-
placing the guardsmen now on
duty with Chicago guardsmen, if
the situation does not improve.
The Chicago guardsmen are in
summer training at Camp Gray-
ling, Mich., but will return this
week end. The guardsmen on duty
now are from nearby cities.
The governor said in a telegram
to Sheriff John E. Babb of Chica-
go that "I am advised that order
is restored in Cicero within a ra-
dius of 300 yards of the apartment
STEVENSON SAID he believed
the guard troops who put down
last night's rioting were deployed
"too late" to prevent formation of
large crowd. He said he believed
they arrived at a rendezvous at
the Cicero Town Hall in time, but
found no local officials who could
say what was required of them.
He said the troop commander
finally deployed his men on his

retary Walter White of the Na-

said he would fly to Chicago to

"From the investigations made
to date, it is clear that the Cicero
rioting has been planned for a
long time and there is evidence of
expert agitation in the leadership
of the riot," White said.

day when 450 guard troops moved

of State Acheson disclosed yester-
day that a number of State De-
partment employes have been sus-
pended in the last month or so.
These are in addition to the two
officials whose suspension-in con-
nection with security charges
against them-was announced last
* * *
ACHESON REFUSED to say how
many more have been suspended
or give any new names.
He said the Department tries
not to give out procedural infor-
mation in these cases, but that
when they become known any-
how, it feels it ought to say what
the facts are.
It had become generally known
among State Department reporters
that John P. Davies and Oliver Ed-
mund Clubb, high ranking offi-
cials specializing in Chinese affairs,
had been suspended before the
Department formally announced it
Acheson told questioners the
suspensions were under the appli-
cation of a statute which he under-
stood was only about a month or
six weeks old.
He said that officials or other
employes who have to face hear-
ings on loyalty or security charges
since the application of the law
became effective must be automa-
tically suspended pending hearings.

SENATOR McCARTHY (R-
Wis.), Acheson's severest critic, ap-
