The subject, a touchy one among United States' Allies abroad, was raised by reporters at Mr. Truman's news conference.

Spending Too Much South Carolina Solon Wants Tuition Doubled COLUMBIA, S. C, Feb. 15 (UP) A Piedmont legislator said today that he felt tuition ought to be doubled in almost all of South Carolina's state-supported colleges. Rep. Thomas Evins of Spartan burg, speaking against education appropriations for colleges in the appropriations bill, said he felt 'the state is spending too much on education and the students not enough." Evins said he felt tuition should be" raised from' $80 to $160 a se mester rin-" all ' State-supported schools for white college students Allied Forces Ram 14 Miles To Save Gl's UN Combat Team Stalled Commies But Got Trapped TOKYO, Friday, Feb. 16 (UP) j American armored forces ram-! i med 14 miles through a Chinese j ring around Chipyong yesterday to relieve a Franco-American combat team whose four-day stand helped stall the Communist offensive in central Korea. The mauled remnants of four or five Red divisions broke and ran south of Chipyong before the relief column of tank riding Gl's. Col. Paul L. Freeman welcomed the arriving Yanks, announced that his garrison had made Chip yong a "rock of resistance," and said he would hold as long as necessary. Lt. Gen. Edward M. Almond's 10th Corps counter - attacked strongly around Chipyong and Wonju, the stonewall bases an choring the Allied defenses in central Korea. They snagged the big Red push down through the mountains. But central front dispatches re ported that two huge Chinese armies estimated at 120,000 were.' massing just north of Chipyong j land Wonju to resume the of fen-1 sive. It had subsided under the j i drain of staggering casualties, of ficially estimated at 10,993 in kill ed and wounded on Wednesday alone. But with the frontal onslaught checked, the Reds succeeded in infiltrating the Allied lines at several points to threaten the lat eral highway through the moun tains. Red units of unknown size were reported in the vicinity of An yang and Pupyong, between Won ju and Yoju.

Evins estimated the average cost per students at the Univer sity of South Carolina' was $560 per semester, compared with his $80 1 tuition.

In The Zither Family Niles To Bring Unsual Instruments, 4 Dulcimers, In Tuesday Show Here By Charlie Brewer When Joan Jacob Niles appears in Memorial Hall next Tuesday at 8 o'clock as the fourth Student Entertainment Committee pre sentation this year, he will bring with him four dulcimers of his own handiwork. The dulcimer is an ancient in strument in a family .with the psaltery, the zither, the rabeck, and the citole. It dates .back to the days of King Nebuchadnez zar, and was popular in Henry. VIII's England. . : : .

Graham, former United States Senator and president of the University from 1930-1949. Addressing a Briefing Confer ence on World Affairs here, Dr. Graham suggested that the Ren ville Principles already approved by. the United Nations in the In donesian situation - be considered "a possible starting point for the r Confederation of Principles and Procedures for the Korean situ ation. "Modified and adapted to meet the Korean situation, the Ren ille Principles could be the ways and means of substituting ballots for hullets and law and self-determination for war and exterm ination," Dr. Graham said. He asserted that the General Assembly of the United Nations "is the only agency which can now possibly express and muster the moral power of mankind for freedom and hope and peace." He pointed out that the General As sembly can, without a veto, make recommendations to the Security Council and to member nations. The Voice of America, he said, "must get through to the peoples on both sides of the Iron Curtain in both hemispheres the story, with all its achievements and fail ures, frustrations and hopes, of America and all free peoples in ! their upward struggles for human i freedom and the equal opportuni- j ty for self-determination of all i peoples of all races, regions, colors j and creeds." Dr. Graham and A. K. Niebies zczanski, Sectretary of the Polish Political Council in the United States and organizer of the Polish underground during the German occupation, were the principal speakers at the all-day sessions held in Gerrard Hall. The Conference was sponsored by the Women's Federation, the North Carolina Federation of Home Demonstration Clubs, the Southern Council on Interna tional Relations, and the Univer sity Extension Division. A shocking close-at-hand ac count of life in a Soviet-dominated nation was revealed by Niebieszczanski. He said that last year a six-year economic plan was inaugurated in Poland which "puts emphasis on the de :imer is a long and expensive process, for the aging of the in strument alone requires from two to three years. These days Niles is having a difficult time rounding up his materials, especially the Carpa thian spruce from which he makes the top of his instrument.

"The results of the new scheme," he said, "will be disastrous from the 'viewpoint of the population's standard of living, but will aid substantially the armament in dustry of the Soviet Union." In Crete: Lovers Deny Pre-Wed Honeymoon CANE A, Crete, Feb. 15 (UP) The two young lovers who nearly plunged Crete into civil war denied today that their romance started in a pre-marital honeymoon on a pine need le bed in a cave on Mt. Ida. Twirling his luxuriant mus taches, Costas Kefaloghianos' admitted in court here that he kidnapped beautiful Tassoula Petrakogeorgi and took her to the cave on the fabled play ground of the ancient Greek gods. But he denied passionately that he raped her in the pre sence of armed men of his mountain band, as her sister charged. He loved her too much, he said, and besides she had a stomach ache. They just sang love songs in the moon light, he protested, until they were married. Tassoula, 111 of influenza in Athens and awaiting a baby. agreed with Costas. Tassoula asked that the Kefaloghianos and Petrako georgi families, who threaten ed to engulf the island in civil war over the romance, let them alone. "I am Costas' wife and I love him and there is no sense try ing to separate us," she said. "My passion always pushed me behind her," Costas said. "I always went to the movies when she did and many snowy nights I leaped from my bed in order to pass in front of her house." top of the body. The eight-string instrument is strummed rather than plucked. j The advantage of the dulcimer! is that it produces quarter and eighth tone notes that do not exist on the piano's scale. Each dulcimer is tuned to a single key and for this reason Niles carries four dulcimers to each concert. It is with these home-made dul cimers that Niles has found it most, satisfactory, to accompany himself in his type of songs which have no .known composers aha scarcely, any known beginnings. n n 111! n n mmsTi Debate on the nonpartisan se lection board bill exploded with the first speaker, former legisla tor Jack Lackey, who declared there was "something radically wrong with the way we are think ing" if the motion passed. Soion Bunny Davis (UP), re torted with the accusation that campus political parties were "do ing a little flag-waving on this bill because some of their power is about to be cut off." The bill, if passed, would set up a nonpartisan board composed of 12 members taken from the Men's, Women's and Student Councils charged with the task of interviewing all candidates for election or appointment to the three Councils. Candidates ap proved by the Board would have that fact noted on the ballot. . It was introduced in the Legis lature last week by SP floorleader Bill Prince and sent to committee. The Ways and Means Commit tee, headed by Jack Owen, brought the bill out for vote last night with only two major changes, both deletions. Deleted was the portion stating "no person may present himself as a candidate . . . without having been interviewed by the Board." Also removed was the sentence providing for rotation of the Board chairmanship among chair men of the three Councils. As it reads now, a member need not present himself for approval to the Board, although, . as of.e solon put it, "in the past several years, - non-approved candidates attempting to buck Men's Coun cil Bipartisan Board selections were defeated." Davis' speech set off a round of hot debates, with Sheldon Pla- ger taking thelead for the oppo sition. Nine different legislators took the floor, a few more than once, to keep the 90-minute storm alive. Plager, in one of his three speeches, backed up Lackey who spoke from a prepared text de manding to know "why a board is any more qualified" to select candidates than the student body in a campus election. Mel Respess answered declaring that those with experience on the Councils "are certainly more qual ified to judge." Without a non partisan board, he charged, an ambitious person might "pressure himself" to a top position. The bill, called alternately "a flake of Lux on the soiled linen of petty carrpus politics," and an imposition on the ability of the student body to choose for itself its judiciary arm of government, was victim of several amendment attempts. But three amendments and two efforts to pass to a vote were de feated while the solons vented their feelings on the bill and po litical party influence. It will appear on the floor again next Thrusday night after the Ways and Means Committee con siders the bill. To come out of committee next Thursday is a bill to amend the General Elections law. Referred to the Committee tn Academic Affairs, created by leg islation las week, were the bills (1) recommending reestablish ment of the tutorial system and (2) requesting the filing of quiz zes in the Library- Live Music Live music will be featured fhis Sciurday night at 8:30 for the weekly Presbyterian church square dance.
