Independents Form 8 New Committees Truman Silent On Republican Congress Win Senator Fulbright’s Move for Resignation Gets Cold Shoulder WASHINGTON. Nov, 6— <UP>— President Truman came back to the capital today silent on the GOP capture of Congress and the proposal of a fellow-Democrat that he resign and yield the presidency to Michigan’s Sen. Arthur H. Vandenberg. Mr. Truman and his wife and daughter arrived at 11:30 a.m., EST, aboard a special train from Independence, Mo., where he voted the straight Democratic ticket yesterday and predicted a national victory for his party. Although he had been up until 2 a.m. getting the election news, the President was smiling and appeared in good spirits to reporters. But he turned down all requests for comments on the sweeping Re- Great Britain Views Republican Election Victory Uneasily LONDON, Nov. 6—(UP)—Great Britain viewed the Republican landslide in the United States uneasily today. The press warned it would injure Britain’s economic position and one paper—the Star—editorially termed the GOP victory a “triumph of reaction.” Government sources maintained a discreet silence on what they chose to term an “internal American affair,” but there was widespread fear that the Republican drive to eliminate controls may gravely damage the British position as a large-scale buyer in the American market. In a bitter editorial the Star, of liberal political affiliation, said: “From now on we shall see American big business . . . Ifi every way thwarting national and international efforts to get order into world affairs.” ASSC Constitution Changes Intimated CHICAGO. Nov. 6—(UP)—The Chicago Sun, which supported President Roosevelt’s administration, tonight urged President Truman to name a Republican secretary of state under guidance of GOP senators and congressmen and then resign the presidency In his favor for “the welfare of the nation.” In a front page editorial, Marshall Field. Sun publisher and editor, said in an open letter to Mr. Truman that “the hour has come for you to create a notable precedent in American history.” publican victory with the promise that he would have something to say at a press conference “in a day or two.” Neither would he say anything on the proposal advanced by Sen. J. William Fulbright, D., Ark., that he resign the presidency for the Yesterday's independent council meeting saw the formation of several new committees that will act separately and in cooperation with student and faculty groups. These new committees will make long range programs for student body activities possible by removing the slower-moving situations from the council and allowing the council to proceed with more timely situations. GROUPS ELECT ’These groups will elect their own chairmen and work out their general programs by themselves." said Dick Gilson, independent council member. “This is partly a program to increase individual responsibility within the independent council.'’ Dick Gilson points out the advantage of the new groups working 1 good of the nation. *ith student and faculty clubs, Republican national chairman B. councils, and organizations. ; carrou Reece said it was up to Mr. NEW C « IMITTEES • Truman to make up his own mind The new committees and their [ab°ut resigning, members are: “It is a matter between the presi- Social committee; Emily Enbysk, | dent and his conscience,' he said.

Konoye's Part in Axis Treaty Told at Trial TOKYO, Nov. 6—(UP)—The late Prince Fumimaro Ko-noye told a secret privy council meeting in the winter of 1940 that Japan intended to sign a triple alliance with Germany and Italy, according to evidence presented today by the war crimes trial prosecutors. The evidence showed he told the council the move was motivated by a desire to prevent war with United States but then went on to say that “if worse came to worse Japan must be firm.” Konoye told them that Emperor Hirohito. with whom he discussed the matter the previous day, held the same belief. Navy Minister Hoshio Oikawa appeared that day before the council to inform them confidently that Japan could not be beaten by the United States but he left behind a warning that in the event of protracted hostilities, Japan must put forward its best foot to keep abreast of American production might. The council that day also heard then-Foreign Minister Yosuke Mat-souka, one of the 27 defendants who now is dead, voice a belief that it was a 50-50 toss up whether the United States and Japan would finally clash. Today's crimes’ court session heard the lengthy prosecution recitation of a 55-page British document citing instances of Japanese bombing of Anglo hospitals, consulate buildings, and ships in China during the hostilities. Despite repeated British representations from London, the document said, these incidents rarely received attention or even acknowledgement from the Japanese. vice-president, the secretary of state would succeed him in the presidency. “Turn the country over to the Republicans.” said Fulbright. “If the change in sentiment is strong enough to elect a Republican congress, it indicates the people want a change.

(U.E) — Italian and Yugoslav plenipotentiaries told the Big Four foreign ministers today that their countries will not accept the proposed Italian-Yugoslav frontier and the Trieste international zone as now planned. Alberto Tachiani, Italian ambassador at Washington, said that his country would not “voluntarily accept” the Italian peace treaty in its present form—an implied threat that the Italian constituent assembly or parliament would refuse to ratify it even if it was signed by Italian delegates. Stan joe Simic, Yugoslav foreign minister, calling the treaty “inac-cefttable,” said that his country's view was the same as at the Paris Peace Conference, where Yugoslavs announced they would not sign the treaty unless it was altered in their favor. “The proposed frontier is a cruel mutilation of the patrimony of the Italian people.” Tarchiani said. “We can not actively contribute to a settlement of our eastern frontier in which we do not believe and which we cannot voluntarily accept because of its human injustice, its practical inefficiency, its denial of democratic principals and its failure to carry out the hopes held forth to all nations by the Atlantic charter.

Those interested should contact Bill Gould, musical chairman of the varsity show, who will be in the band room of the Cinema and Arts building daily from 10 a. m. until noon. “All scripts and music must be completed by Nov. 30 so it is imperative that the job be started right away,” Gould said. The county board of supervisors next appointed him district attorney to fill the unexpired term of the late John F. Dockweiler.

The announcement, signed by Joseph Curran, NMU president and co-chairman of the Committee for Maritime Unity, came on the heels of refusal of West coast waterfront employers to sign agreements with striking longshoremen unless the Marine Engineers Beneficial assoc iation signed concurrently. Curran said he planned to call an immediate meeting of the joint Maritime Union committee in New York city to discuss “full support of the West coast unions.” Negotiations in San Francisco between the Pacific American Shipowners association and the third striking union — the AFL Masters, Mates, and Pilots — were temporarily suspended awaiting the return of federal mediator Nathan P.

Harrison emphasized that any changes are still very much in the planning stage but admitted the desirability of proportional representation while insisting that there is a need for the leadership which, he said, comes from the participation of functional groups in student government. DRAFTED IN 193« The present constitution was drafted in 1936, and main conflict among protagonists of the two systems is the fact that the 1927 constitution, under which the senate functioned prior to writing of the present document, provided for an additional representative for each 300 students enrolled in the various colleges. ‘I am not averse to making basic changes in the constitution,” Harrison declared. “If proportional representation has the support of most of the students, it will be included, but the final decision rests with the senate.” Asked how he intended to get the opinion of the student body on the (Continued on Page Four) NEW YORK. Nov. 6. <Ui!> — The Republican tide which swept the GOP into control of congress also gave it a majority of the state governorships, near-complete returns showed tonight. With only one oj this year’s 34 gubernatorial contests still undecided, the Republicans had clinched 25 of the 48 governorships. This restored them to the state balance of power which they yielded two years ago in the Roosevelt sweep. The old division was 25 Democrats and 23 Republicans. Still undecided was the Wyoming contest in which Democratic incumbent Lester C. Hunt and Republican challenger Earl Wright were locked in what had all the makings of a photo-finish battle.

United States councilator Omar Hoskins met briefly with representatives of the NMO Wednesday. * In the 37th day of the strike, the waterfront employers turned down an offer of the International Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's union to return to work when the steam schooner issue was settled. The employers group insisted that all ships must be worked without exception and all port labor agreements — including that with the MEBA, brother union of the ILWLT in the CMW — be signed at the same time.

The GOP clinched the upper hand by capturing hitherto Democratic Ohio, Massachusetts, and Idaho. But Colorado reversed the trend of switching from a Republican chief executive to a Democrat. Thirteen incumbents — five Democrats and eight Republicans — were returned to office. Voters ousted two other incumbents, both Democrats—Frank J. Lausche, who was beaten in Ohio by Republican Thomas J. Herbert, and Maurice J. Tobin of Massachusetts who lost tc Robert F. Bradford. Idaho, the third state to discard its Democratic administration, elected Republican C. A. Robins over Arnold Williams, the Democratic nominee. Colorado went from the Republican to the Democratic column by electing William Less Knous, state supreme court justice. Nevada, which switched to a Republican senator, retained Democratic Gov.
