Blue Key to Hold Business Meeting French Victors Demand Post For Communist Reds Propose Thorez as New Cabinet Premier PARIS, Nov. 11—(UP)—The Communist party announced today that it would demand the first premiership of the Fourth French republic for its leader, Maurice Thorez. The Communists were as-; suming that final results from yesterdays’ national assembly elections would demonstrate that theirs was France’s numerically strongest political party, an assumption well justified by almost complete returns. Forty-four constituencies in the emipre remained to be heard from. REDS GET 168 SEATS Results for metropolitan France, Corsica and Algeria gave the Communists 168 seats in the assembly and a popular vote of 5,430.593. The provisional President Georges Bidault's popular Republican party <MRP) had 160 assembly seats and a vote of 4.988.609. The Socialists — the third party of the existing governmental coalition — won 92 seats and a popular vote of 3.443.901. It appeared highly unlikely that Thorez would get the premiership. Since there are 618 seats in the assembly, the Communists were far short of a majority. Even counting the seats of the Socialists, who have who>eheartedly gone along with them in the constituent assemblies. SOCIALISTS HIT HARDEST In comparison with strength in the last constituent assembly, the Socialists took the worst beating ot any party. By this comparison, the Communists gained 20 seats, the MRP's strength was not changed and the Socialists lost 27 seats. Some observers thought an effort would be made to form a gov- Industries List Price Increases Spokesmen Say Rises to Be Held At Minimum Members of Blue Key will hold I ernment of Communists, Socialists a business meeting today at 5 p.m.; and Edouard Herriot’s left Repub-The meeting will be at Sigma Chi; lican union, under Communist bouse, 907 West 28th street.

Manken to Be Guest Artist On Trovet Concert Program by Dave Platter Already a well-known radio artist, John Manken, one of the three performers on the Trovets’ Music in the Afternoon concert at 3:15 Wednesday, has also been seen in motion pictures—at least the most important part, his hands, have. A quiet, reassuring blonde, 18 years of age, Manken has become a master of the piano keyboard. according to critics, who say that his technique is flawless. The Behymer artist series has presented this outstanding young artist on four occasions. Last year I he was the winner of the Los Angeles PTA $100 piano competition. CHOPIN’S HANDS His motion picture appearance. "A Song to Remember.” was the dramatization of the life of Frederick Chopin. Manken's artistic j hands were the ones seen in this picture, characterizing the great J composer's technique. Will Renda. Trovet music director, said that this was Manken’s second appearance with the Music in the Afternoon concerts. “His first appearance last spring met with such acclaim and so many requests for a repeat performance that we have asked him to appear j again.” RADIO BROADCASTS In addition to numerous broadcasts over the NBC and ABC networks. Manken has appeared as soloist with the Peter Meremblum Southern California symphony which has done musical background work for several motion pictures, and played the difficult Tschaikow- . by United Press General Motors Corporation boosted the price of its cars and most of its trucks $100 today as spokesmen for several industries predicted that any price increases on their products would be held to a minimum. The General Motors increase, coming 48 hours after government decontrol of most prices of Cadillac, Buick, Chevrolet, Oldsmobile and Pontiac automobiles. General Motors President C. E. Wilson said the increase also applied to Chevrolet truck and corresponding trucks turned out by the GMC truck and coach division. PRICE ADJUSTMENTS Wilson said the increase would “place prices of General Motors cars in a more reasonable relation to greatly increased costs of production. He added that adjustments in prices of certain household goods produced by GM’s Delco appliance and Frigidaire divisions would be announced later. The Ford Motor company said it expected no immediate increase in the prices of its cars. Spokesmen for Chrysler and Hudson said they were studying decontrols and market trends. Spokesmen for lumber, used car and building materials industries at Detroit said effort was being made to hold the line on prices. Commend from various industries includes: TIRES STAY EVEN Tires—the Goodyear Tire and Rubber company at Akron said it expected to maintain the existing price level of tires despite decontrol. Company president E. J. Thomas said that ‘‘only higher labor and material costs than those now established can cause the company to change its tire price schedule.” Newsprint—Fred N. Countiss. OPA newsprint expert, predicted that the supply and price of newsprint would remain close to present levels for the next year. He said costs might, rise a little over the current $84--a-ton port city price but that it was more likely they would drop back to about $80 a ton in about 60 days. COAL IS STEADY Coal—the price of coal produced in the Applachian district will not be raised except in cases which require an increase to assure a reasonable profit, a spokesman for the Applachian Coals, Inc., a marketing agency, said.

Her democratic monarchy has similiar problems to those in a complete democracy, arid it should be noted that Egyptians enjoy all the rights of an independent people.” BRIGHT EGYPTIAN FUTURE Establishing the facts that an Egyptian recently presided over the meetings of the Security Council of the United Nations, that the secretary general of the league of seven Arab states is an Egyptian, and that the league has its seat in Cairo, Moussa stated that the future would show Egypt to play an important part in the world affairs. After outlining the history of Egypt, Moussa spoke of the intellectual and artistic life of his country. “Universities and other institutes of learning are numerous and Egypt enjoys a very active social and cultural life. Industrial and entertainment fields are constantly expanding.” EQUAL RELIGIOUS RIGHTS Although Egypt is one of the major Islamic center of the world, Moussa stressed the religious tolerance that exists. Moslems. Christians, and Jews are all accorded equal rights. The same rights and privileges are extended to visitors from other countries.

Dr. Max T. Krone, dean of the Institute of the Arts, has cleared this concert through official channels in record time because Saturday is the only time that the Philharmonic orchestra will be able to appear on campus.

COOPERATION GIVEN Partly as a result of a discussion held at Wallenstein’s home by a group of college music forum leaders last week, this concert was planned. It was made a reality by the cooperation of Mr. Wilfred Davis, business manager for the orchestra, Dr. Krone, and Mary Ellen Medler. Miss Medler said, "The first SC forum event this season is not only the largest we have ever presented, but is. to our knowledge, the largest campus event ever sponsored by a student group. “The specially arranged program for this event will not be the one that is played downtown for the opening of the Philharmonic’s Los Angeles season Thursday.” GUESTS INVITED Dr. Rufus B. von KleinSmid. chancellor; Carl Hancey, dean of (Continued on Page Two) ALFRED WALLENSTEIN . . . guest conductor I “Egypt morally dominates its part Conway, who resides at 122510f the world and justifies her triple Chester avenue, Inglewood, rode mission in the social, political, and Faculty Club Hears Dean On War Trial “Observations at the Nurenberg Trials” is the topic to be presented at this weeks luncheon of the Men’s Faculty Club.
