Dec. 9— <l'.E> — | The United States and Great Bri-! tain admitted today that they are : taking steps to standardize some of ' their weapons, but an American spokesman denied emphatically that the move envisages a military alliance against Russia. Former British Prime Minister 1 Winston Churchill called for closer ; Anglo-American military planning in his Fulton, Mo., speech last March, and added a warning against Russia's “aggressive-tendencies.” He spoke in the presence of President Truman, and some diplomats saw that as tacit endorsement of his proposal. The American and British statements were issued in the form of replies to questions asked in London and Washington today. The almost identical language and the timing made it evident the two governments agreed in advance what they would say. Tlie American statement concluded by recalling a statement made by Secretary of State James F. Byrnes last March 16. during the furore over Churchill's speech. At that time he said, “We do not propose to seek security in an alliance with the Soviet Union against Britain or in an alliance with Great Britain against the Soviet Union.” The statement today added, “there has been no change in that policy. The commitments of the United States are to the United Nations.” After a preamble stating how the United States and Britain had economized by standardizing during the war, the U.S. declaration continued: “Because of the effectiveness of these measures there have from time to time been informal exchanges of views on standardization of arms notably with the United Kingdom (Britain) and Canada. in Dock Basin Storm Beats English, French Coast Towns LE HAVRE, France, Dec. 9 —(UP)The giant former German luxury liner Europa with which France hoped to revive her merchant marine, sank in 30 feet of water in the dock basin today With a gaping hole in her side. She was torn loose from her dock last night by one of the worst channel storms in years. Out of control, she was blown across the submerged hulk of the luxury liner, Paris, which burned j and sank in the same basin in an-. other of a series of French ship tragedies, before the war. SALVAGE PLANNED But French maritime authorities clung doggedly to the determination that the Europa was not going to become a worthless hulk as the Pride of France, the liner Normandie did after she burned at her dock in New York city. Divers, tugs, cranes, and scores of men succeeded in anchoring the submerged ship fore and aft to prevent the ebb and flow of the tides from changing its position. Jules Moch, transport and public works minister, inspected the work and returned to Paris where he said he (Continued on Page Four) “That's the last straw.” Dr. T. Walter Wallbank said yesterday morning when the entire front row of seats in Bovard auditorium was found to be in absentia. Equally perplexed man and civ students milled around in front of the rostrum and finally shuffled off to the balcony. A tardy blonde in pigtails came down the asle, looked about in vain for her regular place, and finally settled in a second-choice seat. Undaunted by the strange disappearance of the seats. Dr. Wall-banks came forth with the mysteries of totalitarianism, and the hilarity subsided. supreme Court Limited Vet Turnout Reviews Case _ , . r .

Conn., Dec. 9 — —Randolph Churchill. 35, son of former British Prime Minister Win ston Churchill, was fined $50 today by a town court judge who ruled that a speed of 80 miles an hour constituted reckless driving. Churchill, who conducted his own defense, paid the fine. He said, however, that he might appeal the ruling. He was charged with reckless driving on Nov. 19 when a state trooper arrested him on Connecticut's Meritt Parkway, a highway which Churchill described as “one of the safest in the world.” Churchill pleaded not guilty to the charge. He contended that driving at an excessive speed was not necessarily “reckless". He did not protest the prosecution's statement that he was driving 80 miles an hour. Judge Dana Hawthorne held that a speed of 80 miles an hour “if other persons are on the highway, certainly endangers the lives of other people, and is indeed reckless operation of an automobile.” Churchill was arrested by state trooper John Carlson when he was driving fom Derby, Conn.. to New York City after addressing a women's club. Carlson said that on the same day Churchill was warned by another officer and that in Derby he received a ticket for overtime parking. Ihe ticket was later quashed. Carlson said. “Thunder Out of China” is one of the most dynamic and interesting books to come out in recent years”, said Dr. Martin H. Neumeyer in referring to the book he will review this afternoon. “The book adds greatly to our understanding of a difficult and little known subject,” he continued. A Book of the Month club selection, “Thunder Out of China” is a history of China for the past 10 years. It covers the Chinese Civil war. the Chinese war with Japan. America’s part in the Far East, and the possible course of China in the future. It tells a good deal about “Uncle Joe” Stillwell and his con flicts with the Chinese authorities. The authors, Theodore H. White and Annalee Jacoby, were connected with the Chungking news bureau of Time magazine for many years and are well qualified to cover their subject. They feel that stability will not come to China for many years because of the long road to modern civilization that China must travel. But they hold out a great deal of hope for the future. Dr. Neumeyer is also qualified to discuss the conditions in China because he was a resident of that country, “While I do not hold with all the authors opinions, the book was extremely interesting to me and will undoubtedly clear up many doubts in the public's mind about this little known country”, he said. The review, sponsored by the Council of Religion, will be held in the art and lecture room of the library at 3:15 today. It is one of a series of lectures on some current and interesting book that the council has sponsored. Trophies Gleam, Trojanes Beam Gleaming trophies are the proud piece of service to their university rendered last week my sophomore women of Sword and Shield. Instead of the usual sedate meeting, Thursday's conclave found a group of determined sophs energetically applying polish an d elbow giease to the Trojan trophies ensconced on the third floor of the Student Union. AFL Denotes Desire To Incorporate New Wage-Hour Contract by United Press WASHINGTON. Dec. 9—The Su-pr me Court today took jurisdiction over the contempt of court proceedings against John L. Lewis and the United Mine Workers (AFT,), and fixed Jan. 14 for the opening of arguments. The Tribunal agreed to review the case at the government’s request after a lower Federal court found Lewis and his union guilty and imposed a $10,000 personal fine on the mine workers’ boss and $3,500,000 on the union. That decision was handed down last Wednesday by Federal Judge T. Alan Goldsborough. The Supreme Court was released from pressure for a quick, final ruling when Lewis abruptly called off the strike of 400.000 soft coal miners Saturday at least until March 31, by which time he hopes to negotiate a new wage-hour contract with the government or the mine owners. HIGH COURT DECIDES Later hearing arguments, the high court must debate the issue involved and reach its decision—a legal procedure that might delay a final decision until close to the date when Lewis ►night feel free to call his union mmbers from the pits for another walkout. Tlie court’s action meant that oral arguments, involving the important question of the use of court injunctions to delay or prohibit strikes against the public interest, would not begin until after the new.

South'anders Sponsor Bill of Rights Week Southland school representatives in cooperation with public service organizations held a meeting recently to formulate a program dedicated to impressing upon students the importance and significance of the Bill of Rights. This progr.iii is a part of Bill of Rights week which is sponsored by prominent southland business men. leading southland institutions, churches, and other organizations concernrd with public welfare. PROMINENT SOUTHLANDERS Jim Mitchell. ASSC president and William Green Hale, dean of the School of Law, were the SC delegates to the conclave which is cooperating with such prominent southlanders as Fletcher Bowron; George H. Moore, president of the city council; Dr. Vierling Kersey, superintendent of Los Angeles City schools; Rabbi Edgar F. Fagnin; Rev. Thomas J. O Dwyer; Dr. Robert G. Sproul. president of the university of California: and Rufus B. von KleinSmid. A serious attempt is being made to reach students on the various campuses in order to present to them a better understanding of the Bill of Rights. Jim Mitchell indicated. EVERYONE SHOULD LEARN “Because of the importance of the first ten amenci lents to the constitution, it is the duty of everyone to leam or relearn just what the B?ll of Rights guarantees,” Mitchell said. “The fundam ntal and most important things are usually taken for granted and the emphasis is unjustifiably transferred to those matters of le:>s significance. * Despite its importance, the Bill of Rights is only a part of the fundamental document of our land, and, in order to fully appreciate and comprehend its significance, understanding of American government in general and the constitution in particular must be encouraged,” the student body president declared. Students Offered Chance to Avoid Courses in P.E. Under a plan inaugurated last spring by the curriculum advisory board, students at SC i nay escape taking the usual required physical education courses providing that they are able to pass certain physical tests. These tests are being given by the P.E. department beginning tomorrow from 3 to 5 p.m. and will continue until Friday. Len-ore C. Smith, assistant professor of physical education, announced. All students desiring to take the tests should report to 108 Physical Education building today or tomorrow and indicate in the appropriate column on the chart there the tests they intend to take and the date they will appear for them. Everyone in the university is privileged to seek exemption from part or all of the requirement in physical education by passing appropriate tests. All veterans of World War II are exempt from required P.E. activity courses. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors may seek exemption from part or all of the remainder of their requirement through these tests providing that they do not select for their tests activities in which they have already received course credit. Further information may be obtained by a personal call at 108 Physical Education building, where either instructors or the secretary on duty will be able to advise the student. Troy Will Hear Music Masters In Own Works “/inerican leadership in music is promised by the creative work of present student composers,” Dr. Ernest Kanitz, associate professor of music, said yesterday, in reference to the work of his composition classes in which are enrolled young musicians from ail over the United States. Nineteen of these composer’s works will be heard in a concert to be held in Hancock auditorium tonight at 8:15. “Some of these composers are beginners, having but three months of university training.” Dr. Kanitz said. “Others are much further ad vanped and have written or are writing larger works than the ones to be presented at Tuesday's concert.” TIME LIMIT He also pointed out that not all of the worthwhile music of his composition classes can be played, due to j <-nitation of time, but that they Nominations Define Political Lines In Race for New Senate Position Battle lines in the election of a veterans’ representative on the ASSC senate were clearly drawn yesterday when Jesse Unruh, Trovets president, and Bob Smith, former associate editor of the Daily Trojan, were nominated to run for the post provided for by Shipwrecked Hebrews Get British Help a recent amendment to ASSC constitution. the will De heard at a later concert, Performers on tonight's concert will include two faculty musicians. Composers who will play or accompany their own works are, Yvonne Behler, Edward Davis, Georg Dawson, Ernest Freeman, Daniel Mac-Kay, Tom Matthewes, John Rinn. William Teaford. Conrad Wedberg, and Robert Wilkinson. Other performers are Margaret Airth, John Clifton, and Salvatore Spano. MUSICAL TYPES Explaining the types of music which are to be presented. Dr. Kanitz said: “Some are entertaining, some deep, some ironical, and others are innocently humorous.” Dr. Kanitz is a ccpnposer himself. his music having been played both in Europe and in the United States. At present, two of his compositions are being reproduced by a music publishing house in New York. The concert of original compositions is free to the public. Dr. Kanitz stated, “I hope that the audience will agree w’ith me that all of the compositions are very good music.” JERUSALEM, Palestine, Dec. 9— d'E)—Four Halifax bombers today parachuted food and other supplies to 8000 Jewish refugees shipwrecked on the Tiny Dodecanese island of Cyrene, 60 miles west of Rhodes, and it was announced that a destroyer and minesweeper had been sent to their rescue. The refugees’ ship was wrecked on the rocky island Saturday night, believedly while trying to run the blockade to Palestine. The stranded Jews probably will be taken to Cyprus detention camps after their rescue. RAF pilots, who carried supplies on the 1.200-mile round trip to Cy rene from Lyeda airport in Palestine, said they saw the refugees waving as they circled overhead. SOME SUPPLIES LOST Strong winds carried some of the parachuted supplies out to sea, but other drops landed on the island, they said. Negotiations were continuing in Jerusalem for another rescue flight carrying doctors and nurses. If the flight is made it was expected the medics would land at Rhodes and then proceed by ship to Cyrene. Richard Stubbs, British public information officer, said the Palestine government had acted on humanitarian and not political motives in dropping supplies by air and sending navy ships to rescue the castaways. General public reaction to the (Continued on Page Four) Hard Hats Precipitate Wildcat Mine Strike MARIANNA, Pa.. Dec. 9— (ILE) — Although they had not worked for two and a half weeks, 600 miners at the Marianna mine of Bethlehem Steel Company went on strike again today because one miner reported for work wearing a hard plastic hat. The same thing happened Nov. 20 —just before the general coal strike began. The contract signed by the government and the UMW last May requires miners to wrear hard hats and hard toe shoes. The Marianna miners accepted the shoes, but claimed the hard hats were “uncomfortable.” UMW officials are trying to end the wildcat hat strike. Noodnink Wires Wampus View; Sale Day Near In view of the fact that Editor Donna Knox refuses to divulge the date set for the sale of the next issue of the Wampus, amateur sleuths have been attempting by various means to ferret out the answer to this closely guarded secret. One investigator wired Mme. Gypsy Noodnink, Lower Slobbovia. asking what she saw in her tea leadings (not to be confused with REIDings). Her answer came back: “Is gung be fine Wampus. Batter you should have patience." Another eager seeker cornered Horace Writentyper, who is rumored to be the author of “Roses ’n’ Razzes,” in the Wheel and plied him with cokes in an attempt to worm the information from him. Horace was adamant, however, and would only sob: “They'll ta’.ze away my TNE card if I tell.” The only bit of information on the subject was gleaned by an exsignal corps man who tapped thc Wampus phone and overheard a conversation between the editor and the printer regarding the issue date. He reports that the entire conversation was carried on in Pig Latin, but that he did manage to catch the two words; “Ossiblypay ednesdayWay.” Orchid Ball Planned for Junior Class Every coed will sport a Hawaiian orchid at the forthcoming Junior class prom to be held at the Riveria Country club Jan. 11, according to an announcement by Milt Dobkin, president of the class. “This will be the only orchid ball in America.” said Dobkin while pointing out that beautiful Hawaiian orchids will be presented in the form of a corsage to each girl as part of the bid price of $6.25. The distinctive flowers will carry out the theme of the annual formal pr * i which ls expected to be one of the top dances of the entire school year. ORCHID THEME The orchid theme will be further carried out by huge artificial candles and extensive matching decorations, according to Dobkin, and the dimly lit Riveria will be steeped in the sweet fumes of the hundreds of orchids, and the slow music of Skitch Henderson’s orchestra. The island of Hawaii is the source of the fragrant blossoms which were located in quantity only after a dil-ligent search by the members of thc Junior class council. Downtown wholesale florisis looked askance at the huge order for orchids and shook their heads sadly while saying that there just weren’t that many orchids in town at this time of the year. FINDS FLORIST “W;e were determined to carry out the theme however,” said Dobkin, “a:-cl finally found a florist who pi » cd to have them flown in by pL from Hawaii for us.” The corsr.ges alone are expected to almost equal the cost of the bid according to other council members. Tuxedo’s or dark suits with formal ties are required of men while the long forma’s of their dates will set off the deep purple of the Hawaiian orchids. It took only 22 minutes for tha small crowd, estimated at 200, to hear Unruh nominated by Bob Peck and Smith presented by Pat Hillings in 3 t ninute speeches which placed emphasis on the solving of veterans’ housing problems. Opening the noon assembly in Bovard auditorium, Jim Mitchell, ASSC president, apprised candidates of the requirements for office a« stipulated in the student body constitution and then called for nominations from the floor. PECK PICKS UNRUH Peck, in nominating Unruh, recited the latter's accomplishments as president of the campus veterans* group, Trovets, and characterized Unruh as the “most logical man” for the job. “It is no wonder that Trovets, knowing his fight for thrfn, are overwhelmingly in favor of his election,” Peck asserted in telling of Unruh’s 38-month naval service. “Because of an expected addition in the family, he understands the problem of the veteran who is at once a student and a family man.” HOUSING PLATFORM Accepting the nomination, Uni uh reviewed the work done by Trovets in alleviating the housing shortage, referred to the acquisition of a dormitory for 158 single veterans, promised to resist an alleged rise in tuition, and told of plans for low-cost social functions. Referring to the phrase “Queen of Battles”, Hillings called for former infantryman Smith’s election on the basis of past experience in student politics at the University of California. HILLING LAUDS SMITH “The man who crawled on his belly in the mud will be the veteran'* best representative,” Hillings declared. “Smith has a concrete program which includes veterans and nonveterans. He brings to the campus a fresh viewpoint of a function student government at another major university.” Smith spoke of the need for integrating the veteran with the "university family,” and presented plans for a veterans' council which would include an elected male member of Trovets, a woman veteran, and three members elected at large. He also told the ase i .lbly he intends to explore the possibility of cooperative housing. Balloting in the election, which begins tomorrow and continues through Thursday, will take place at eight booths lining the walk in front of Bovard auditorium and at the dental clinic downtown. Polls will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. Professors Association Members of the SC chapter of the American association of university professors are requested to attend a meeting at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14. in 206 Administration. The executive committee urges all members of the faculty to attend. Veteran Election Details Revealed The veteran’s election will be held tomorrow and Thursday. Balloting will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. on the two days scheduled. Booths will be set up on the walk in front of Bovard auditorium and at the dental clinic downtown. Voters will be required to present their student body identification cards, apd a signed list of registrants will be compiled. This list will be available ior checking in the event of suspected fraud. Veterans not holding identification cards which identify them as such may vote by presenting a copy of their discharge papers.
