VOL. LXII, No. 186 ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN, WEDNESDAY, JULY 16, 1952
FAIR AND WARMER
By The Associated Press
The state's delegation to the
Democratic National Convention
yesterday kicked up its heels
against voting at Chicago under
the unit rule.
The 135-man delegation voted
25 and 5/6 to 72 to reject the
imit rule, imposed by the Demo-
cratic State Convention and al-
ready certified to the National
Convention officials. The 135 del-
egates and alternates have 40
STATE DEMOCRATIC Chairman
Nel Staebler said he would pass
the delegation's vote on to the Na-
tional Convention Chairman and
ask that Michigan be relieved of
the unit rule, but he warned that
under National Convention rules
the state is bound by the decision
of the State Convention.
The fight against the unit
rule, which requires the entire
state delegation to ballot ac-
cording to the wishes of its ma-
jority, was led by CIO delegates.
There was speculation that the
labor union delegates wanted to
get out from under the unit rule
so that they would be free to vote
in concert with labor members
from other states for a Presiden-
tial candidate acceptable to labor,
no matter what kind of a decision
the party regulars made.
Governor Williams, U.S. Sena-
tor Blair Moody and Staebler op-
posed upsetting the unit rule,
which August Scholle, state CIO
chairman, former Governor Mur-
ry D. Van Wagoner and Robert
P. Scott, former secretary of the
Michigan Federation of Labor,
voted to upset.
IN CHICAGO, the calm Demo-
cratic front was shattered yester-
day by a charge of a "gang up"
plot against Sen. Estes Kekauver
of Tennessee. Then came a re-
port that President Truman still
is determined not to run for re-
Then in rapid-fire order came
1. Democratic National Chair-
man Frank McKinney reported
President Truman had instructed
him Sunday to oppose any "draft
Truman" move that might develop
in the Democratic National Con-
vehtion opening Monday.
2. McKinney told reporters
Truman will not come to Chi-
sago until after the Democratic
nominee is chosen.
3. Sullivan demanded of McKin-
ney that, the entire convention
proceedings be thrown open to
press, radio and television because
"we want to be free of those fixers
and masters of the doublecross."
4. Sullivan said he had been told
an effort had been made to bribe
some of the California delegates.

central portion bearing the initials
of the University on inlaid Maize
and Blue brick.
This portion of the Diagonal,
dating back perhaps as far as
the Twenties, and described by
a Building and Grounds De-
partment official as a "mud-
hole," has long been a favorite
meeting spot for University stu-
dents, as well as the scene of an-
nual clowning by pledges of
University honorary societies.
A somewhat hazy old tradition
regarding this spot on campus
holds that freshman who despoil
the sanctity of the revered initials

them must face thorough "discip-

A department statement an-

States was suspending publication
of a Russian-language magazine
called "Amerika," which it had
been distributing in Russia.,
It said the twin actions were
taken because the Russians were
obstructing distribution of "Amer-
ika" in the Soviet Union.
In halting the "Amerika" pro-
ject the department gave up op-
erations on the last remaining
wedge into the Iron Curtain.
A spokesman said the slick-

The Communists yesterday ask-
ed for an additional two-day re-
cess in the secret Korean truce
negotiations and the Allies agreed.
The new delay in the crucial
talks came as Peiping radio an-
nounced Red China's conditional
acceptance of the Geneva Conven-
tions providing for the care of
prisoners of war and banning germ
and chemical warfare.
THE PRISONER of war issue is
the sole remaining obstacle to a
Korean armistice. The truce talks
have been deadlocked on it for
months. The Allies refuse to re-
patriate any prisoner against his
will. The Reds have insisted on the
return of all their captured troops.
Whether the startling Red
statement they would adhere to
the Geneva Conventions might
provide a key to an armistice

ing the development cautiously.

To Call New
A crucial, White House-inspired
steel strike parley between indus-
try and union ended in failure
yesterday, foiled by the contro-
versial union shop issue.
President Philip Murray of the
United Steelworkers (CIO) and
Vice-President Joseph M. Larkin
of Bethlehem Steel Corp. spent
two hours in a downtown Pitts-
burgh hotel, only to finally issue
a joint statement saying that they
could find no common meeting
ground on the union shop issue.
BOTH INDUSTRY and union
agreed to stand by for word from
Presidential Assistant John R.
Steelman, who took a hand after
week-end negotiations between
the same parties raised hopes of
agreement but broke up in disap-
Murray and Larkin had agreed
to meet again at the urging of
the White House after Steelman
said settlement of the 44-day
old steel walkout is imperative.
Steelman is reported to have
warned industry and union to re-
sume bargaining or else face a
summons to Washington where
they would be locked in a confer-
ence room until final settlement of
the nation's longest and costliest
steel strike is achieved-
The joint statement of industry
and union read: "We hate con-
tinued our discussions . . . and
are still in disagreement. We have
reported that by telephone to Dr.
Steelman. He has requested that
we stand by for further word from
The area of disgreement be-
tween industry and union lies in
Murray's demand that union mem-
bership be made a condition of
employment. The wage issue is
believed out of the way with gen-
eral agreement on pay boost of
around 25 cents an hour, includ-
ing fringe benefits.
Harold Howard, State Depart-
ment research expert, said in a
public lecture yesterday that the
states of the Arab League are ex-
erting an increasing amount of in-
fluence in the United Nations.
The Near Eastern authority
stated that the Arab nations with
the cooperation of other nations
of Asia and Africa have been able
to attain important seats on many
UN councils and commissions.
They have influenced resolutions
and have shown particular inter-
est in agencies such as UNESCO
which can help deal with Near
Eastern problems, he said.
* * *
THE MAJOR INTERESTS of
the Arab States have been in mat-
ters concerning trusteeships and
non-self-governing territories and
the emerging nationalism of Asian
and African nations. All the Arab
delegates, Howard said, insisted on
establishing the principle of UN
technical and economic aid to un-
derdeveloped areas in the East.
Howard commented that some
of the UN's toughest problems
have also come from the Arab
world. Among those problems
mentioned were the partition of
Palestine and the formation of
the State of Israel, the Anglo-
Iranian oil controversy, the Suez
controversy and the disposition
of Italian colonies.
Howard observed that while in

inee pledged to such workers that

integral part of this united effort,

JULIANA BROUGHT FORTH CROWDS:
Americans Share Interest in Royalty
By BARNES CONNABLE
Special To The Daily
LONDON-An unashamed, detailed interest in a royal family
is not something at which Americans can reasonabley snicker.
It should be recalled that the Netherlands' Queen Juliana's
spring visit to America brought forth millions of curious citizens
who had never been subjects.

PERHAPS the huge turn-out at Grand Rapids can be attributed
largely to the huge Dutch population in that area. But at the

Englishman and American is the various troops which have for
centuries guarded it.
The Grenadier Guards, lifeguards and countless other cate-
gories-you can't tell them apart without a program-look
a bit ridiculous at first glance.
After a while, though, you begin to wonder if there's something
in all this, for you find yourself staring along with hundreds of Lon-
doners at every move they make.
Their get-up is fantistic, stifling and painful. But they con-
duct themselves with humorless dignity and you don't really feel
right about asking them whether this isn't a jolly waste of time.
