UAW-GM Reach.
Contract Terms,
Agreement Settles Wage Inequities;
Gives Short Work Week Provision
DETROIT (P)-United Auto Workers and General Motors Corpora-
tion announced at 9:49 p.m. last night they had reached agreement on
a three-year contract, less than 12 hours after GM plans across the
country went out on strike.
Louis G. Seaton, GM Vice-President-Personnel, called it a "sound
and Pair" -pact.
Ends Bargaining
The announcement ended nearly 36 hours of continuous bargain-
ing broken up only by occasional lunch breaks. The general economic
features of the GM pact followed the Ford Motor Car Company and

To Report
OUn City Plan
The Urban Renewal committee
will make their report to Ann Ar-
bor's City Council Monday night
with recommendations to the
general principles to be followed
in the renewal project.
Last night, the committee final-
ised their recommendations on
zoning and, traffic flow through
the renewal area. The area ex-
tends roughly from Depot St. to
Division St. to Catherine to Ash-
ley St. and back to Depot.
May Adopt Proposal
If City Council adopts the rep-
ommendations of the committee
zoning of the area will be revised
to. make it all residential with the
exception of a portion at the
south along Catherine.,
This "block" of commercial area
will, by blocking off one street,
enable a shopping plaza to be
constructed which would take
care of some of the merchants
that might nove out of the resi-
dential area, Iobert Babcock, of
the city's planning department,
xaid; y
Block Off Street
With the street blocked off and
the parking area enlarged there
would be room for 20 to 25 shops
and 120 to 125 parking places.
Committee members stressed
the need to "buffer" the residen-
tial areas from the commercial
ones. A key point in this buffer-
ing, Babcock said, is the Farmers
eo Zone Streets
"If the committee can't acquire
it," he continued, "it must be
zoned commercial and will be
difficult to block off."
The committee's recommenda-
tions and subsequent action on
them must be completed by Dec.
15, Ann Arbor's mayor, Prof.
Samuel J. Eldersveld of the po-
litical science department, em-
phasized, if the City Is to meet
government specifications.
Gain Federal Support
In the Urban Renewal program,
the federal government pays part
of the costs of improving "sub-
standard" sections of a town. To
get this financial support the
town must meet rigid specifica-
tions with regard to the nature
of the improvement to be made,
plans for the care of families dur-
ing construction and so forth.
Final plans must be submitted
within two years of submission of
the initial application.
For Ann Arbor, the period will
be up Dec. 15.
Ask Release
Of Americans
H:eld by Reds
States yesterday asked Communist
Czechoslovakia to promptly release
three American soldiers who
crossed the Czech border.
The tate Department made

Sept. 25 to the Czech Foreign
Ministry at Prague.
The three soldiers are Pfc. An-

Represents Progress
"This contract represents very
substantial progress for workers
and their families," Reuther said.
"It is good for GM workers and it
is good for the country because it
is non-inflationary in' character."
When the strikers walked out,
the shutdown of GM's automotive
division which turns out half of
America's cars, was completed
within an hour.

I7TTLE ROCK, Ark. (P) - A
private school plan leader said
yesterday white high school stu-
dents may be in classrooms next
But Negro leaders said they ex-
pect the private school plan to
"eventually collapse."
Dr. T. J. Raney, head of the
Little Rock Private School Cor-
poration said financial contribu-
tions are mounting rapidly follow-
ing an appeal for funds.
"The way offers of money and
buildings have been coming in,"
he said, "I think we can see our
way clear to open private schools

The plan excludes Negro stu-
dents and several Negro leaders
said today they knew of no plans
to educate Negro children if the
private schools open.
Clarence Laws, field secretary
for the National Association for
the Advancement of Colored
People, said last night:
"We think this (private school
plan) is an attempt to- fool the
people and we believe eventually
the whole thing will collapse."

Urges Plan
To Hinder
LITTLE ROCK (P) - Attorney
General Bruce Bennett yesterday
revealed a plan aimed at stamping
out ac'tivities of the National As-
sociation for the Advancement of
Colored People in all southern
Bennett said he had written
senators and representatives of 14
southern and border states urging
them to join the attack.
Form Local Groups
He said his plan would include
withdrawing tax deduction privi-
leges of the NAACP's legal defense
and education fund and the for-
mation of local committees to exert
economic pressure against integra-
tionist elements.
The Attorney General said he
had "long -contended that the
NAACP organizations are at the
foot of our racial problems, and
the only way I can see to restore
our people to peace and tranquility
is to neutralize those organiza-
Calls on Attorneys
In addition to appealing to
southern congressmen to aid his
plan, Bennett said he would ask
all Arkansas prosecution attorneys
to "vigorously prosecute every law-
yer and individual who should file,
assist, recruit or urge others to
bring integration lawsuits in vio-
lation of the criminal laws of our
Cites Other Steps
He added:
"I urge every local police officer
to make arrests under our vag-
rancy and inciting riot statutes of
those who come into their com-
munity under ,suspicious circum-
stances and who appear to be
attempting to divide our people."
To Enact Laws
Other facets of the six-point
plan include enacting legislation
to prohibit an increase in wel-
fare payments for additional ille-
giimate children to persons al-
ready receiving aid for one child;
and adoption of local ordinances
aimed against the NAACP.;
Bennett charged that NAACP
attorneys "have run rampant
throughout America stirring up
litigation, recruiting plaintiffs, pit-
ting race against race, making
surveys to see where its next target
would be-all under the guise of
'defending' and 'educating' certain

4aled his plan,'NAACP Secretary
Laws issued a lengthy statement
denying that the NAACP had
Communist ties or sought to stir up
Laws said Bennett's "smear cam-
paign" would be a "vicious attempt
not only to deny Negroes their con-
stitutional rights but even their

could be no doubt Bennett knew
his plan was unconstitutional and
doomed to failure.

college level without strengthening
the educational opportunities in
the state's high schools," Prof.
Rober C. Angell, director of the
Honors Council, said.
Next February will be the full-
time starting date for the program.
Prof. Copley is now studying
problems involved in establishing
the program. After February, the
program will run full-time during
the school year, and half -' time
during the summer months.
University To Help
Prof. Copley will work with the

The University will invite other

"It is this 'short-changing' that

UN Debate
Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei
A. Gromyko yesterday called for a
new full-scale debate on the Mid-
dle East situation to speed up the
withdrawal of United States troops
from Lebanon and British forces
from Jordan.
In a hurriedly-scheduled speech
before theUnited Nation's General
Assembly, the Soviet foreign min-
ister accused the two western
powers of deliberate stalling.
Condemns Intervention
He said their continued presence
in the two Middle East countries
must be resolutely condemned.
Gromyko declared that the
threat to peace in that area had
been by no means removed by U.N.
Secretary General Dag Hammer-
skjold's recent peace mission.
The report of the Secretary Gen-
eral on his efforts, he said, "con-
tains a large dose of artificial
Gromyko further described Ham-
marskjold's report as one - sided
and said his conclusions presented
an 'upside down picture.'
The Soviet foreign minister sug-
gested withdrawal of United States
and British forces should be put
on the agenda of the 81-nation
assembly as a separate item.'
However, when questioned by
Assembly President Charles Malik
(of Lebanon), Gromyko declined
to say whether he would back his
suggestion with a formal proposal.
United States Ambassador Henry
Cabot Lodge said speeches of this
kind show "Mr. Gromyko's, con-
tempt for the United Nations."
He called Gromyko's statement
"'100 per cent villification" and
"mere billingsgate" turned out by
the Moscow propaganda factory.

Strategy Talks
WASHINGTON (Al)-- President;

Dwight D. Eisenhower yesterday'
called a White House strategy con-
ference for next Monday to try to
build a fire under the Republican
congressional campaign.



By Secretary;
States Standr
Basic Policies Remain
In Effect for Chinese
Despite Strategy Shift
WASHINGTON ()- Secretary
of State John Foster Dulles sought
to reassure Chiang Kai-Shek yes-
terday of continued United States
support for his Nationalist China
Dulles sent a message to For-
mosa in the wake of Chiang's out-
Tuesday against statements by
Dulles the day before.
Situation Confused
Dulles said yesterday he wanted
to straighten out confusion com-
pounded - what he called "an
exaggerated idea of a shift of
position on our part . . . misin-
terpreting the misinterpretation."
The secretary ,made this com-
ment as he took a plane for his
Duck Island retreat on Lake On-
tario, not to return to his desk
until Tuesday.
Crisis 'Eased'
His departure was interpreted, as
a sign of confidence that the For
mosa crisis has eased sufficiently
for him to take a few days off.
Dulles did not deny any shift in'
policy. Although his news confer-
ence remarks three days ago were
widely interpreted that way, state
department officials said it was
more a shift in emphasis than a
shift in policy.
Basic Policy Remains
They said this basic policy re-
mains: No appeasement of Re
Chinese aggression but willingness
to negotiate peacefully, support by
arms if necessary of the existence/
of Nationalist China on Formosa.
, But two things Dulles said Tues-
day hit Chiang particularly hard
and caused him to reply with such
expressions as: "Incredulous
completely incompatible with our
stand ..does not sound like him."
Explains Statement
These two were:
1) That it would be foolish to
keep large Nationalist forces on
the coastal islands if Red China
agreed to a dependable cease-fire,
as it was foolish to put them there
in the first place.
2) Chiang has no chance. of
driving the Communists off the
mainland by his own steam, and
there is no United States commit-
ment to help him do it.
Eisenhower Backs Dulles
President Eisenhower backed
Dulles up at his news conference
Tuesday, but the President paid
deference to Nationalist pride and
emotionalism about the Quemoy
and Matsu islands.
Dulles, and the state department
in a statement issued about the
same time, paid deference, too, to
Nationalist sensitivity. Neither
blamed any misunderstanding on
Chiang. Rather they attributed it
all to certain unspecified interpre-
tations of what Dulles said.

Juvenile Delinquency Drops in County

An informal meeting of the Political Issues Club last night heard
Willard Maxie of the Ann Arbor juvenile court report that delin-
quency is generally on the decline in gang-free Washtenaw County.
At the same time, he warned that the county is understaffed in
the field of social work, having an average of three case workers
available for every 80 problem children.
Trouble Centers in Willow Run Village
The only traces of any gang development within the county
center in Willow Run village, where several "group offenses" have
been reported, Maxie admitted.
However, he explained, there is no real evidence of "anything
constituting a gang."
Maxie placed a large portion of the blame for nationwide juven-
ile delinquency on heavy urbanization.
Notes Racial and Ethnic Tension
He noted racial and ethnic tension along with family strife as
two effects of urbanization which contribute to delinquency.
The group heard an hour-long tape recording of Edward R.. Mur-
row's "Who Killed Michael Farmer?", which analyzes the gang slay-
ing of a crippled boy in New York last summer.
