State Senate Chief Pledges GOP
Opposition To Withheld Payments
By JAMES SEDER
Special to The Daily
DETROIT-Frank D..Beadle (R-St. Clair), State Senate Majority
Leader, said last night the Republican Party would oppose any future
attempt to deprive the three largest state universities of "their share"
of state funds.
In other action at the Republican State Nominating Convention,
the pre-convention platform committee recommended the party ask
that a' resolution be placed on the April 6 ballot asking the voters
"whether they desire an increase in the sales tax."
- The group also approved the use of the Veterans Trust Fund to
meet the current cash shortage if it is "the only avenue open in order

Will Never Consent
South Korea lost a battle when
the Japanese cabinet decided to go
ahead, but vowed it had not lost
,. the war.
"Whatever the cost and what-
ever the necessary action, we shall
never consent 't the Japanese
dispatch of Korean residents to
the Communist enemy," Foreign
Minister Cho Chung Whan de-
Korea must resort to any and
every drastic measure, he said, "to
correct the Japanese wrong."
Japan disregarded re e at e d
warnings by Rhee's government in
deciding to permit some thousands
of applicants among its 600,000 or
more Korean residents to go to
North Korea. The Red regime
there has promised them jobs.
Prime MinisterNobusuke Kishi
and his cabinet gave their en-
dorsement cautiously and with the
view that the operation would be
subject to screening by the Inter-
national Red Cross.,
The J-Hop Central Committee
is in "complete agreement" that

held next year, Murray Feiwell,

"I see no reason that another
J-Hop can't be held at the League
with ticket sales limited to 600,"
Feiwell added, commenting that
opinions expressed at the Central
Committee meeting Tuesday were
very favorable toward holding the
dance in the League.
"Some people even thought it
was much better suited to the
affair than the Intramural Build-
ing," he said.
Calling the approximately 1,200
people attending J-Hop a "fairly
decent percentage" of students,
Feiwell noted that a concert held
during the weekend would prob-
ably add to the effectiveness of

visions to restore the fund as
quickly as possible."
Late Friday night it looked as if
Republican State Chairman Law-
rence B. Lindemer would smother
an attempt of Sen. John P. Smeek-
ens (R-Coldwater) to, replace him.
A source close to Lindemer re-,
ported that Lindemer had more
than two-thirds of the votes
pledged to him.
Beadle made his statement con-
cerning payment to the University,
Wayne State University, and
Michigan State University, while
interpreting a resolution of the
pre-convention platform commit-
The statement said "The Re-
publican Party deplores the arbi-

State Administration's action in

higher learning by withholding

WASHINGTON W) - Mounting
concern that Secretary of State
John Foster Dulles may have a re-
currence of cancer spread through
the capital last night after he
underwent an operation for hernia.
The operation was termed a suc-
cess, but announcement of any
other findings by the doctors will
be delayed until today.
Should their report show a new
attack of cancer it could mean the
imminent retirement of Dulles
from the No. 1 post in President
Dwight D. Eisenhower's cabinet.
Dulles thought of quitting once
before, when he underwent an
operation for cancer.
The hernia operation was per-
formed between 8 and 9 a.m. yes-
terday at Walter Reed Hospital.
During the operation, tissues and
,fluids' were removed for micro-

presence or absence of cancer is

LEGACKI SETS RECORD:
Michigan Swimmers Crush Iowa
By DICK MINTZ| | |
The Wolverine swimmers waged
an unsuccessful war on the record
book last night and in the process
turned back an undermanned Iowa
A near-capacity crowd jammed
the Varsity Pool in hopes of wit-
nessing the world mark shattered
in the 400-yd. medley relay. It was
disappointed though as the Wol-
verines fell six-tenths of a second'
short of the 3:46 record.
Michigan Coach Gus Stager
loaded the relay with a foursome
of All-Americans who would have
established a record if each re-
peated his best performance.
John Smith, Cy Hopkins, Tony
Tashnick and Frank Legacki swam
the respective backstroke, breast-
stroke, butterfly and freestyle legs.
Only Legacki, however, rose to the
occasion with a superlative effort.
The hugh crowd chuckled in dis-
belief when it was first announced
that Legacki would be expected to
swim the 100-yd. anchor leg in
:49.0 in accord with Stager's rec-
ord-breaking plans. The world
mark for the distance is :48.9 so
there was good reason to smile.
But the rM" fans underrated
this fast-rising hero of a team of
heroes. In a supreme effort, with
the crowd urging him on, -and the
big time clock on the wall flashing
the. passing of precious seconds
Legacki recorded the distance in
the unofficial time of :48.9.
The relay time didn't match1
Legacki's effort but he did touch
the finish in 3:46.6 for a new pool
Legacki was also the winner of
the 100-yd.freestyle as he bested a
duo of the nation's outstanding
sprinters. Iowa's national cham-
pion, Gary Morris, was matched
against him along with Michigan's
All-American Carl Woolley. This
featured dual match of the eve-
ning was all that it was hoped to
be as the three whipped the water
together. Legacki kicked home first
for a new Michigan and pool
record in :49.2, followed by an
eye-lash three-tenths of a second
later by Morris.
Defeats NCAA Champ
In defeating the Hawkeye na-
tional champion, Legacki estab-
lished himself as the chief threat
to the world 100-yd. mark held by
Stanford's Robin Moore.
Iowa's only first came in the
50-yd. freestyle as Morris shoul-
dered the burden of his team and
splashed to the finish ahead of
Woolley in :22,5.
William Clearhout, the other
outstanding individual performer
the Hawkeyes boasted, could only
