U.S. Accepts Plan
For City Renewal,
Tract Between Depot, Ann Streets
Forms Area Under Consideration
By THOMAS TURNER
The federal government has accepted Ann Arbor's urban renewal
plans, thus offering to pay two-thirds of project costs and all of the
The area under consideration is an irregular 75-acre tract be-
tween Depot and Ann Streets running east and west and Ashley and
Division Streets north and south.
Ann Arbor is in no way obligated to carry out the plan, Mayor
Cecil'O. Creal pointed out last night. He characterized the govern-
ment letter to City Administrator Guy C. Larcom as a "proposal of
- conditions under which the City
oumld enter into a contract with
BONN, Germany () - The
United States Air Force yesterday
sent its third high flying trans-
port within a month to Berlin in
,defiance of a Soviet 10,000-foot
Russian Jets shadowed the
plane but did not buzz it as on
two previous occasions, United
States officials said.
The new Air Force flight raised
misgivings in Britain. Authorita-
tive sources said Britain is wor-
ried lest a United States-Soviet
flare-up in the air corridor im-
peril an East-West summit meet-
ing this year.
British sources said the United
States State Department had
promised Britain no more such
flights would be made for the
present, but there appeared to be
differences between United States
military and diplomatic officials.
On both legs of the flight
through the corridor over Com-
munist East Germany the plane
was closely shadowed by two So-
viet MIG fighters, United States
But they said preliminary re-
ports showed the four-engined
turboprop transport was not
forced to change course or reduce
altitude. The C130 flew at its nor-
mal operational height of 20,000
to 25,000 feet both going and re-
turning from its base at Evreux,
The Russians protested a pre-
vious flight by a C130 on March
27, contending Allied planes were
required to remain below 10,000
feet as a safety measure in the
three air corridors to Berlin. The
Russians say they use the air
above 10,000 feetoverthehcorri-
U. S. Rejects Claim
The United States rejected this
claim in a diplomatic note and
there was a sharp exchange of
charges tha each side was guilty
of dangerous flying.
There was another incident on
w April 3 when a four-engined pro-
peller traport of the United.
States Air Force reduced altitude
from 12,000 feet after being
buzzed by Red fighters.
WASHINGTON ()-Vice Adm.
John T. Hayward testified yes-
terday the nation's space program
is cumbersome and certain to run
into serious delays.
He urged that the separate ci-
vilian and military space agen-
} eies be brought under a single
over-all unit similar to the Atom-
ic Energy Commission.
Hayward, boss of the Navy's re-
search and development pro-
grams, testified before the Senate
At the request of chairman
Stuart Symington (D-Mo.), Hay-
ward agreed to submit a reorgan-
ization plan that would stream-
line and speed up varied space ef-
forts, both military and civilian.
Druids To Edit
The Board in Control of Stu--
present to Council
The next step in the $1,487,000
project is presenting the govern-
ment offer to the City Council and
working out the details, Creal said.
He noted finance, relocation and
zoning are particularly difficult
areas still to be finally dealt with.
"There is still a long way to go
before the plan goes into effect,"
the mayor declared.
The public will have to approve
any decision on money to be
raised, Creal said. The opinion of
people concerned will have to be
solicited, and the people in the
area concerned in the plan have
to be satisfied if relocation is to
be carried out, he continued.
Creal said he has not yet studied
specific aspects of the government
proposal but "the first thing I
would take exception with is the
acceptance date of June first.
"If they insist on a June first
deadline there is no chance of
getting it into effect," Creal said.
Urban Renewal, if enacted as
now planned, would require city
acquisition of 67 properties in the
area, including 44 in residential
use and 23 in commercial and
Seventy-four families are sched-
uled to be relocated.
All property thus acquired would
be cleared fo rredevelopment. For-
mer mayorProf. Samuel J. Elders-
veld of the political science de-
partment has suggested the city
set up a profit-making corporation
to develop the property and a
development foundation to subsi-
dize rents thereon.
WASHINGTON (A)-Fidel Cas-
tro, youthful leader of Cuba's
revolutionary government, got a
roaring welcome here yesterday
and voiced the hope "I can bring
a better understanding of our
program in Cuba to the people of
the United States."
The bearded prime minister,
wearing the khaki uniform of his
revolutionary movement, alighted
from a Cuban Air Line plane to a
cheering welcome from a crowd of
about 1,500 flag-waving Cuban
supporters and Dominican exiles.
There were shouts of "Viva."' Long
His 10-day visit to the United
States is listed as unofficial, but
top State Department officials
were on hand to greet him, along
with Cuban diplomats,
Strict security precautions were,
in force as the 32-year-old Castro
stepped to the ground after a
flight that took a little more than
31/a hours from Havana.
Ugo re tz
By PHILIP POWER and
In an hour-long executive ses-
sion last night, Student Govern-
ment Council appointed Richard
Ugoretz, '60, to fill its vacant seats.
The Council also considered a
petition requesting the appoint-
ment of Michael Fishman, '60, to
the vacant seat. Submitted by,
Scott Chrysler, '59BAd., the peti-
tion contained signatures of 1,100
The petition stated: "I want
Michael Fishman on SGC. I be-
lieve that SGC's refusal to seat
him was suspect, that his inten-
tions at all times have been in
good faith, and that the choice of
voters should prevail."

Calling the petition "a good,
healthy chunk of student opinion,"
Chrysler explained it was first
circulated during the week before
In announcing Ugoretz's ap-
pointment, Ron Gregg, '60, Council

that SGC didn't want Fishman,"

possibly have appointed him."

WASHINGTON (P)-An investi-

ordered yesterday by the House

By a 12-11 vote, the committee
approved a resolution directing
that the investigation be com-
pleted "at the earliest possible
time." It will be conducted by a
subcommittee headed by Rep.

Act on Request
The action is in line with an
informal request by the defeated
incumbent, Rep. Brook Hays, who
last week asked the committee to
find out if his upset was due to
Both Alford and Hays are Demo-
crats from Little Rock. Alford ran
as a write-in segregationist candi-
date. Hays, the Democratic nomi-
nee and a veteran of 16 years in
the House, called himself a moder-
ate on the segregation issue. Al-
ford won by some 1,200' votes of
more than 60,000 cast.
Although the question of ir-
regularities has been raised since
his election, none of these charges
has been pointed at Alford per-
Hays said he is not contesting
the election but favors an inquiry
because of his concern over the
integrity of the ballot. Another
reason, he said, was that a special
House committee recommended
such an investigation when it
looked into the election last De-
Alford, informed of the commit-
tee's action today, repeated that
"I welcome an investigation on a
fair and impartial basis."
At North Pole
INGLEWOOD, Calif. () - The
Air Force is trying to recover in
the north polar region a space
capsule it believes was successfully
ejected from the Discoverer II
A terse announcement yester-
day said both visual sightings and
radio signals indicate the cap-
sule was automatically ejected, as
planned, on the moonlet's 17th
A spokesman said several
sources have received a continu-
ous tone signal the satellite was
to broadcast after ejection. In ad-
dition, other radio signals indi-
cating changes in the satellite's
center of gravity and weight tend
to confirm the ejection.
No Successor Yet
Reports Pick Under-Secretary
As Most Likely Choice for Post
AUGUSTA, Ga. () - Cancer forced John Foster Dulles
resign yesterday as Secretary of State.
A sad, moist-eyed President Dwight D. Eisenhower a
nounced Dulles' decision at a dramatic news conference.
The vacationing President said he had not finally ma
up his mind regarding a successor to the 71-year-old Cabir
member. He promised to fill the post "as quickly as pro
ticable," and reports continued both here and in Washingt
that Under Secretary Christian Herter, 64 years old, is t

British Prime Minister Harold M.
That summed up the messages
pouring in from European capitals

announced that Dulles could no

were aroused in West Germany,
