LONDON -W)- Former Prime
Minister Attlee charged yesterday
that the big American bombin
of Yalu power plants in Korea car
ried the "conditions of total war'

"I think this is a profound mis-
take in psychology and it is no

Ike Picks Up
By The Associated Press
Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower
passed the 400-mark for the firs
time Wednesday in the race for
delegates to the Republican Na-
He now has slightly more than
r two-thirds of the 604 votes re-
quired for nomination.
A NEW POLL of Pennsylvania's
possibly "crucial" 70-vote delega-
tion shows Eisenhower has picked
up a net gain of six votes over
his chief rival, Sen. Robert A
Taft of Ohio.
The five-star general still
trails Taft in the red-hot na-
tional battle for delegates, how-
ever-and in Washington there
was renewed speculation that
the GOP convention might be-
come hopelessly deadlocked, In
that event, both Taft and Eisen-

tee previously had stripped the
bill of all consumer credit con-
trols. Last Friday the House voted
provisionally to lit price controls

Nothing unusual was reported

HST To Use
voted to go along with the Sen-
ate yesterday in asking President
Truman to use the Taft-Hartley
law to halt the steel strike.
The President was silent, how-
ever, on whether he will heed the
Congressional request. Under T-H,
Truman could apply for an 80-day
court ban against continuing the
shutdown of the nation's most
THE 24-DAY strike was cutting
deeper into the nation's economy,
including defense production. Be-
sides the 650,000 striking CIO
steelworkers, nearly 125,000 other
workers were idle in industries de-
pending on steel. The number was
growing fast, with heavy layoffs
starting in the auto industry.
Truman vetoed the MacCarran
Act, which revises all the immi-
gration and naturalization laws,
yesterday, denouncing it as a
threat to both America's strength
at home and the nation's moral
leadership for peace.
The President said an overhaul
is needed and there are a few good
things in the bill but the features
to which he objected make the
price too high.
THE BIGGEST benefit he saw
in the measure was its provision
removing the present bar to nat-
uralization of orientals and as-
signing small quotas to, Far East
nations-something he has long
"But now this most desirable
provision comes before me embed-
deded in a mass of legislation

other nations of the world, ham-
per the efforts we are making to
rally men of the East and West
alike to the cause of freedon'i, and
intensify the repressive and ?n-
humane aspects of our immigra-
tion procedures," Truman said in
a seven-page message to Congress.
"The price is too high and in
good conscience I cannot agree
to pay it."
The President hit hardest at
the basic theory of the bill, which
is maintenance of the national
origins quota system in effect since
1924. This system is based on tl
1920 'census, which determined
what proportion of the U.S. popu-
lation hailed originally from each
foreign nation. The system calls
for adhering to these same pro-
portions in admitting future im-

try limitations are "insulting to

The President added that the
over-all limit of 154,658 immi-
grants a year is itself too small
to "keep up with the growing
needs of our nation for man-
power to maintain the strength
and vigor of our economy."
The bill, which has been the
center of one of the hottest re-
cent fights in Congress was spon-
sored jointly by Senator McCar-
ran (D-Nev.) chairman of the
Senate Judiciary Committee, and
Rep. Walter (D-Pa.)
it was passed by the House
April 25 with a standing vote of

for the two-thirds required to
override a veto.
The Senate passed the measure
May 22 on a voice vote which did
not show the actual division of
the members. Less restrictive sub-
stitutes, however, had been turn-
ed down in the Senate 51 to 27,

FORUM FOR OPINION:
Poll Shows Students Favorable to SL
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first
in a series of articles on a recent sci-
entific poll of student attitudes to-
ward SL. Today's article deals with
students' opinions on the power stu-
dent government should have. To-
morrow's will consider the represen-
tativeness of SL.;
COMMENTS indicated that stu-
dents' "idea" of SL was a forum
for reflecting opinion rather than
a decision making body.
Those questioned approved SL
of the sociology department, choice
of a topic for polling is mqde on
a basis of administration interest
and student choice. SL has in the
past semester taken action on a
large number of controversial is-
whether they thought the admin-
istration should grant more or less
power to SL. Answers were divid-
ed equally in three sections: more
power is advisable; SL's present
influence is sufficient; no opinion.
