signs indicate President Dwight D.
Eisenhower is losing his battle for
greater support of his Formosa
policy at home and abroad.
He handed- Secretary of State
John Foster Dulles the main re-

administration calls "more under-
standing" of this policy. Despite
coisiderable effort by Secretary

The :State Department has re-
ceived about 5,000 letters from the
American public since Aug. 23,
when Red China started shelling
and threatening to invade Na-
tionalist-held offshore islands in
the Formosa Strait.
Officials said the overwhelming
majority of these letters pleaded
in effect:keep us out of war. One
report was that 80 per cent were
critical but officials rejected this
as too high. They refused, however,
to give a precise breakdown.
Newspaper editorials and the
writings of syndicated columnists,
regarded by the Department as
molders of public opinion, have
continued to be critical of United
States policy in the Formosa
United States allies, notably
Great Britain, have backed away
from involvement in any conflict
with Red China over the offshore
islands. Even the Asian countries
most immediately concerned with

them privately urge the United

Prof. Kerr explained but it is now
the only sponsored project of any
kind being conducted at the
Phoenix Memorial Laboratory.
Participate in Discussion
He was one of 10 representatives
of education' and industry' partici-
pating in the discussion.
Dr. William H. Beirwaltes, of the
medical school, saidtreatment and
diagnostic techniques developed
through the use of isotopes pro-
vided by the Project have made it
possible to deal with cases that
can be treated in no other way.
Dr. Ernest Watson of the medi-
:cal school commented that some of
these techniques have led to treat-
ments of potential hypothyroid
Not Enough Thyroid
These are children who have
not received enough thyroid for
proper development during the
fetal stage. "Five years ago I re-
marked that to treat them we
must be able to discover ,this con-
dition before birth and that's what,
we're doing now," he said.
The Project has enabled law
scholars to "keep up with the
engineers" in the legal aspects of
atomic energy, Prof. Samuel Estep
of the law'school said.

'Wilton B. (erry) Persons of the

The selection of Persons, a long-

certain to be popular with mem-

much of the criticism of Adams.
