An election to obtain a permanent secretary will be held in conjunction with the freshman class elections Oct. 5-6. “I’m sorry to see Lenore leave her position,” Van Alstyne said. “She deserved to win the election last spring after working so hard for it.” According to Van Alstyne, Mrs. Patterson felt that she wouldn’t be able to devote enough time to the secretarial duties as she now has a part-time job, attends night school, and was recently married to Pat Patterson, SC undergraduate. Mrs. Patterson was barred from the Spring race by the Senate’s Elections Eligibility Committee when it claimed she was 10 units under the 90 unit eligibility mark. Two days later, the hopeful aspirant asked for a re-hearing, stating, “I do this because I feel this is not merely a matter of units alone. Last semester I became ill and was forced to quit school.” Meets Here In October The sixth national conference on consumer credit will be held at SC October 7 and 8, it was announced last week by the School of Commerce.

The official, District Director Herman R. Landon, said Miss Stornes, who married television actor Sandy Young, 29, Monday at Las Vegas, was in the United States illegally but that Young could petition for a permanent visa for her now that they are married. In her defense at the re-hear- ' c'a^onI W. B. Tenney, Madison, Wis., assistant director of organization and education of the Cred- ing, Al Golbert announced, “Lenore was declared ineligible because the ASSC constitution says the secretary shall have been credited with at least 90 units and no more than 112 units of college work and shall have completed at least two years of acadeemic work by SC by the end of the semester in which she was elected.” Elections Commissioner Chuck McClure delivered two reports to the committee, the second of which convinced them Mrs. Patterson was ajale to run.

Any SC student is eligible for membership on the committee, according to I chairman Fred^Fagg. The committee initiates projects of benefit to the student body as well as acting as an advisory body to the ASSC Senate. Action on Red China’s bid for a seat in the United Nations was slated for a quick shelving when the ninth annual session of the General Assembly convenes today. Peiping served notice in a radio broadcast today that it would make a formal and determined bid to take over the seat now held by Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek’s Nationalists. The authoritative 'Russian newspaper Pravda promptly backed Red China with a charge that only “the absurd obstructionist policy of the United States blocks membership for the Mae Tse-Tung regime. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, with support pledged from Britain and other major American allies, was prepared to take on Russia's Andrei Y. Vishinsky in what was expected to be a short and bitter battle on the issue when the assembly convenes this afternoon. * * + Sen. Estes Kefauver (D.-Tenn.), just back from an extended tour of Europe and the Middle East, kicks off the Democratic congressional campaign in California Thursday when he begins a three-day Bay Area visit with a luncheon address in the Fairmont Hotel, San Francisco.

The ship Hai Fei flying the Chinese Nationalist flag docked at Portland today from Formosa with 33 Chinese students aboard bound for a year of graduate study in the United States. All of the students were born and raised on the Chinese Mainland and moved to Formosa before the Communists gained control of the country. They are graduates of leading Formosan institutions. Six of the students will go to New York state schools, three to Kansas, two to Illinois, several to the University of Minnesota and others singly to various states. * + * Richard Graves, Democratic nominee for Governor, declared today that the confidential files of the California Crime Commission contained an affidavit linking Gov. Goodwin J. Knight “to underworld elements in San Diego.” Speaking at a luncheon of San Francisco campaign workers, Graves said the affidavit, allegedly buried in the Commission’s secret files, concerned an attempt by Knight in 1952 “to pressure the city attorney of San Diego, Eugene Du Paul, to halt an investigation into illegal activities by Nate Rosenberg, a San Diego tavern owner and associate of midwestern mobsters.” Gov. Goodwin J. Knight branded as another “scurrilous” attack a charge by his Democratic opponent, Ri c hard Graves, that he was linked with San Diego underworld elements in a secret affidavit of the California Crime Commission. “This is just another fantastic, dishonest, scurrilous and completely unfounded attack derdged up by a desperate candidate,” the Governor comment-ted on Graves’ statement to a San Francisco rally. * + * Senate Parliamentarian Charles L. Watkins has rejected Sen Joseph R. McCarthy’s claim that a subcommittee the Wisconsin Republican is accused of defying was operating illegally. Meantime, Chairman Arthur V. Watkins said he “hopes” his special senate committee can complete this week its study of censure charges aired against McCarthy at a recent nine-day public hearing. € The Utah Republican emphasized to reporters, however, that “I’m not making any predictions.” He said Republican and Democratic leaders will be advised when the report is about ready so they can decide when to recall th? Senate. * M * District Attorney Jack Streeter said late today he would file attempted abortion “and possibly other charges” tomorrow against 42-year-old part time Reno pharmacist Clarence Latta following the death of a San Mateo, Calif., woman Sunday. The district attorney said Latta admitted performing an abortion upon the woman. Mrs. Ann Vergos (of 2836 Flores Street) Friday. Mrs. Vergos was dead on arrival at a Reno hospital at 9:20 p.m. Sunday. Latta, booked on attempted abortion at the City Jail, broke down at 6 p.m. after he had been questioned throughout the day. He told Streeter he was contacted by the dead woman and her husband, Alcibiades, late last week. They paid him $300 to perform the abortion, Latta admitted. Vergos told officers his wife, mother of two children, had "threatened to commit suicide if I didn’t get her an abortion.” * * * President Carlos Ibanez decreed a state of siege in Chile today and Communist-inspired violence broke out in a large American-owned copper mine. The state of siege, or modified martial law, will be in effect for six months. It empowers the executive to make house arrests and to move prisoners from one place to another without court action. The state of siege will affect the whole country with the exception of nine small counties. The Chilean constitution empowers the President to decree a state of siege in part of the national territory, but not all of it. Exclusion of the nine sparsely-populated counties makes the decree constitutionally valid.
