The students apparently made a wrong turn into a one-way street and were picked up
by Pittsburgh police. Questioning revealed the six were froni the University.
Police then called in a night watchman from the campus who told of an earlier group
driving on campus. It was rumored these students were from Theta Delta Chi.
' The six students picked up by
the police were, according to the

West Blames Russia
For Geneva Failure
GENEVA, Nov. 16 (!P)—Russia and the Western Powers
tonight broke up the Big Four conference in confessed failure
to secure the peace of Europe, unify Germany, or expand
East-West relations.
The three Western foreign ministers bitterly accused Rus
sia's V. , M. Molotov of bad faith in all his major proposals
during the three-week conference.
Molotov, in his concluding
speech, claimed that only the So
viet Union had maintained the
"Geneva spirit" which marked
the summit conference here four
months ago,.
In a separate declaration di
rected to Germans on both sides
of the Iron Curtain, the U.S,
French and British ministers said
their governments would "not
cease their efforts to end the in
justice and wrong now being done
by dividing the German people."
Ministers •Agree
All four ministers agreed on
only one thing—no commitment
to meet again.
The final conference communi
que said they would ,"report the
result of their discussions to their
respective heads of government
and recommend that the future
course of the discussions of the
foreign ministers should be set

3 Records Set
During Campus
Blood Drive
Three records were set last
week during the three-day blood
drive sponsored by the campus
Red Cross unit.
Second day contributions, total
ing 290 pints, were the highest
collected in one day by a blood
mobile in the Johnstown area.
The three-day total of 672 pints
was the largest amount collected
in any one campus visit.
- The Johnstown Red Cross
Blood Center, associate sponsor
of the drive, was able to make its
highest weekly blood collection
since 1952. A minimum weekly
collection of 600 pints is neces
sary to supply the Johnstown
The blood drive this fall was
held three days instead of the
usual two. This extension was
made pqssible by the increased
facilities provided by the Johns
town bloodmobile.
A 900-pint goal had been set
for the three days by the cam
pus Red Cross committee. Com
mittee chairmen said that the
number of broken appointments
was responsible for the failure
of the drive to meet its goal.
More blood was donated this year,
however, than in previous years.
The high temperature yester
day was 55 degrees. The low
was 46.
Today's weather is forecast
to be cloudy, windy, and much
colder with snow flurries, ac
cording to students in the me

In further developments in
the pre Pitt-Penn State foot

call to the Daily Collegian last
night that Charles "Chip" En

were still unknown at 1 a.m.

since 6:30 last evening and his
parents had no information
concerning the matter. At Col
