To Secret Talks
Decision Comes after 12 Sessions
Of Stalemated Debate over Berlin
GENEVA (P)-The Big Four foreign ministers agreed yesterday to
plunge into secret bargaining on Berlin and a summit meeting when
they resume their conference here Friday
Then they flew off to Washington for the funeral of John Foster
Before the ministers convened around the table in the Palace of
Nations, Andrei Gromyko and Selwyn Lloyd hammered out an East-
West agreement for negotiations to begin in secret next Friday.
To Resort to Secret Diplomacy
The decision to resort to secret diplomacy came after 12 sessions
of stalemated debate on the big issues. Both sides were somewhat
- evasive as to who initiated the
WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower asked Con-
gress yesterday to approve treaties
under which the United States
could provide four more allies with
weapons components, training and
secret information in the nuclear
No atomic warheads will be
One agreement, with Canada,
would "aid materially in the de-
fense of the United States," said
a letter by Sec. of Defense Neil H.
McElroy and Chairman John A.
McCone of the Atomic Energy
Commission, which President Ei-
senhower forwarded to Congress.
To Stengthen NATO
The other agreements - with
West Germany, Turkey and the
Netherlands - would strengthen
the NATO alliance and also "aid
materially in the defense of the
United States," said a May 1 let-
ter by McCone and the late Dep-
uty Sec. of Defense Donald A.
Quarles, who died May 8.
The treaties will go into effect
automatically in 60 days unless
Congress vetoes them. The Presi-
dent on May 19 sent Congress'
similar agreements with Britain
and France. He said yesterday
agreements with other NATO na-
tions also are planned.
All the agreements ban the
transfer of nuclear parts of the
atomic weapons system - such as
nuclear warheads-in accordance
with United States law.

They say too that "no transfer
can be made if it would contribute
significantly to the recipient na-

velopment or fabrication capa-
In his special message to Con-
gress, President Eisenhower said
the heads of the governments in-
volved had made it clear that their
decision to accept this United
States help "was the result of the
fact that the Soviet leaders, while
preventing a general disarmament
agreement, had left no doubt that
the most modern and destructive
weapons of all kinds were being
introduced into the Soviet army."
M Nine Wins
In Finale, 74
By BILL ZOLLA
In a surprise home baseball
game, Michigan's diamondmen
closed the 1959 season with a vic-
tory over Eastern Michigan, 7-4.
The contest, scheduled to be
played at Eastern, was transferred
to Ferry Field because of wet
grounds at Ypsilanti. An odd note
was the fact that the outfield
fences here were already down,
and the game was played sandlot
Michigan jumped on Eastern
pitcher Bob Boyseno for four
runs in the bottom of the fourth
inning to give the Wolverines a
lead they never lost. Catcher Jim
Dickey, one of the two seniors on
the squad, sparked the rally with
Michigan's only extra-base hit of
the day, a double to deep left field.
Third baseman Dave Brown led
off the big fourth with a scratch
single to third. Dickey then fol-
off-the-record sessions. Soviet and
American sources said the initia-
tive came from Lloyd. A British
spokesman said the agreement
Neither side has wanted to pro-
pose secret talks for fear that it
would be blamed for backing away
from the sweeping settlements of
the German question proposed in
conflicting Western and Eastern
To Pivot on Agreement
The secret talks will pivot
around more limited objectives-
a stopgap agreement in the ex-
plosive Berlin crisis and an agree-
ment for a parley at the summit.
The Western ministers can
sound out Gromyko on the price
Moscow is willing to pay to attract
President Dwight D. Eisenhower,
Prime Minister Harold Macmillan
and President Charles de Gaulle
to the summit.
And Gromyko can probe the
Western ministers on what price,
if any, they are prepared to pay
for an easing of Berlin tensions.
If the Geneva conference pro-
duces any concrete steps toward
bridging the East-West clash in
Europe, these probably will come
in the secret, informal talks.
The previous meetings in the
Palace of Nations have been at-
tended by more than 100 delega-
tion members and advisers.

MILWAUKEE, Wis. (P)-Harvey
Haddix, 33 - year - old Pittsburgh
Pirate left-hander, pitched 12 in-
nings of perfect ball against the
Milwaukee Braves last night, but
lost 2-0 in the 13th inning.
First baseman Joe Adcock drove
in both Milwaukee runs with a
long drive into the stands that
was ruled only a double when he
passed a teammate between second
and third base. It was the only hit
allowed by Haddix. Although he
lost, Haddix became the first
pitcher in major league history to
hurl more than nine perfect in-
nings in one game. He also is the
first pitcher to hurl no-hit base-
ball for more tha 10 innings.
Haddix lost his perfect game in
the 13th on a throwing error- by
third baseman Don Hoak which
permitted Felix Mantilla, first bat-
ter of the inning, to reach base.
After Eddie Mathews sacrificed
Mantilla to second, Haddix issued
an -intentional pass to Henry
Aaron. The strategy backfired,
however, when Adcock drove a
towering fly into the stands.
Adcock was deprived of a home
run when he passed Aaron who
had cut across the diamond, from
second to the plate without bother-
ing to touch third base. Adcock
rounded the bases but was ruled
out because he had touched third
before Aaron. Aaron's run counted
because he retraced his steps,
touching third and home. Adcock's
run was officially nullified.

Covering political economy, di-
alectical materialism and the
history of the Russian Communist
Party, the syllabi are not generally
known to Westerners, Prof. Dewey
And all Russian university stu-
dents, no matter what their con-
centration program, must take
these courses, he amplified.
Points Out Importance
The, graying specialist in Rus-
sian affairs pointed out that this
made the syllabi of particular im-
portance, for they provide "a ready -
made philosophy to cover all as-
pects of economic, political and
social life" to condition the entire
new educated class in Russia.'
Prof. Dewey said however that
there appeared to be little in the
syllabi that could not learned from
any course in political theory. He
had heard most of the ideas, he
added, in political science courses
he had taken at the University.
The books are to be translated
this summer and will probably be
made public as soon as possible,
Prof. Dewey reported.
Calls Book Unobtainable

Dewey Gets Russian Course Syllabi
TRANSLATING-Prof. Horace W. Dewey of the Slavic language
department peruses a course syllabus, "The History of the Com-
munist Party in Russia" which he was given when in Russia as a
member of University President Harlan Hatcher's party.
Prof. Dewey said that the "His-
tory of the Communist Party in
Russia" is taught to all university
students for the first two years,
"Political Economy" in the third
and "Dialectical Materialism" in
the last two years of their aca-

The party history begins with a
description of the Communist
Manifesto, citing Lenin's comment
that it "is the first program docu-
client of Marxism."
The first history chapter is the
description of the "worker's move-
ment and spread of Marxism in
Russia, 1883-94," and the booklet.
ends with the "struggle of the
party for further increase in the
economy and culture of the USSR
and for further progress in build-
Reinforcing his comment that
the ideas in the books were known
in the West, Prof. Dewey read
such themes as "precapitalist pro-
duction methods" and "premon-
opoly capitalist production" from
the syllabus "Political Economy."
All these are well covered in West-
ern political science courses.
The books, all recently issued
seem to follow the party line im-
plicitly, Prof. Dewey commented.
He read a title on the "role of
the individual in history" from
"Dialectical Materialism" Which
he said would not have appeared
a few years ago:
