Renewal Report
Made to Council
City Forwards Recommendations
To Commission for Formalization
Before a crowd of nearly 100 people, Ann Arbor's City Council
last night received the recommendations of the Urban Renewal Plan's
Standards Committee.
The recommendations were forwarded to the City's planning com-
mission to be drawn into formal plans which will then' be accepted or
rejected by ,the Council.
Shortly before the recommendations were brought up, a letter
written by the "North Central Home Owners Association" accused
the Council of using "illegal methods in conducting the urban re-
newal program..
According to the letter, the plans committee had used a "padded
list of sub-standard homes" in drawing up their recommendations.

States welcomed Red China's
cease-fire offer yesterday in hope
that it opens the way for peace-

But the full implication of Pei-'

the United States reaction was so
Red China Sunday offered a

was that this consultation would
be even broader. British ambassa-

their views.
The official United States reac-

Says Schmidt
'Seling Out'
WASHINGTON () - The leader
of a rank and file committee in
the Teamsters Union yesterday
accused court-appointed monitor
Godfrey P. Schmidt of getting rich
off union members.
The accuser, John Cunningham
of Flushing, N. Y., former chair-
man of the 13-member union com-
mittee which Schmidt represented
in a case against Teamster boss
James R. Hoffa, made his charges
in a suit filed in Federal Court.
Cunningham alleged that
Schmidt "is selling out the very
position of rust which he was
retained to protect for the general
Schmidt is one of three monitors
appointed by Federal Judge F.
Dickinson Letts to oversee Team-
ster affairs. The monitors were
created in a compromise of the
rank and file committee's suit
which had sought to oust Hoffa as
union president.
Meanwhile, a group of dissident
New Jersey Teamster members
picketed the building here where
the monitors maintain offices.
To Discuss
French Vote
"Implications of the French
Referendum" will be discussed at
the Political Issues Club meeting

,The letter further alleged that the
padded list did not even list the
necessary number of homes to
qualify for federal urban renewal
House and Home Finance Ad-
ministration regulations require
20 per cent of the homes in an
urban renewal to be sub-standard
in order to qualify for their help.
The petition said that it repre-
sented more than 95 per cent of
the property owners in the 75-
acre, North Ann Arbor district
and that they were all opposed to
the plan.
Ann Arbor's Mayor Prof. Sam-
uel J. Eldersveld of the political
science department praised the
work of the standard's committee
and its members.
Council has already considered
one urban renewal plan this
spring and rejected it as being too
drastic. The plan's standards
committee was formed to set cri-
teria for a "more reasonable" ur-
ban renewal plan.
SIke Rallies
WASHINGTON (P) - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower, reported in
a real fighting mood, rallied Re-
publican campaigners yesterday
for an intensive effort to wrest
control of Congress from. the
Taking personal command at a
2%-hour White House conference,
President Eisenhower dispatched
Republican legislative leaders to
preach the doctrine that the GOP
stands for peace and economic
progress while the Democrats of-
fer only socialism.
Vice-President Richard Nixon,
Congressional chieftains and
members of the White House staff
joined after the meeting in a
statement-revised to meet Pres-
ident Eisenhower's suggestions -
contending that continued Demo-
cratic control of the legislative
branch would take the nation
"down the left lane which leads
inescapably to socialism."
President Eisenhower was de-
scribed by GOP national chair-
man Meade Alcorn as "in a real
fighting mood" about the apathy
with which the President has. said
Republican voters have responded
to a campaign in which he be-
lieves "moderate government" is
at stake.
In this vein, the joint state-
ment said that "the responsible
citizen who fails to direct his full
effort toward a Republican vic-
tory in 1958 is, in effect, inviting
the adoption of unsound, unwise
and unpalatable legislation dur-
ing the next two years."

To Vacate
Court Post
Burton is retiring as an associate
justice of the Supreme Court, ef-
fective Oct. 13.
The White. House announced
yesterday that President Dwight D
Eisenhower had received a request
from Burton for retirement and
had approved it with great regret.
Burton, 70 years old, wrote Pres-
ident Eisenhower he was stepping
down from the high tribunal "with
regret but in accordance with
competent medical advice and with
a desire to serve the best interests
of all concerned."
Served 13 Years,
Burton, a former United States
Senator from Ohio, is a Reptli-
can. He was appointed to the
Court by President Harry S. Tru-
man on Oct. 1, 1945.
Burton's retirement came as the
Court started its fall term today.
With the eight other members
of the Court, he joined only last1
week in reaffirming the tribunal's
school integration ruling.
The retirement means President
Eisenhower now will fill the fifth
high court vacancy to occur since
he took office in 1953.
Work Called 'Interesting'
Burton called his work on the
high court "the hardest workI
ever did" and said the court was
"the most interesting place to
finish up your career because you
use all the experience you gained
in other fields of government."
He had an abundance of experi-
ence in other fields, serving as a
member of the Ohio House of
Representatives and as mayor of
Cleveland before being elected to
the United States Senate in 194.
Burton became widely known
in the Senate as one of four
authors of the 1943 resolution call-
ing for international cooperation
among nations after the war. He
became a strong advocate of
Democratic-Republican coopera-
tion for a permanent peace.
Selected by Truman
President Truman, in his first
appointment to the Supreme
Court, selected the Ohio Republi-
can. The Senate waived its cus-
tomary procedure of holding open
hearings on judicial appointments
and unanimously confirmed Bur-
ton's nomination. President Tru-
man broke executive precedent by
attending the court session at
which Burton took his oath of

HigLh School
Stays Open
Officials Move Pupils
To Vacant Building
CLINTON (P) - Clinton High
School's white and Negro students
bounced back lustily today fromj
the dynamite blasts which ripped
into their school plant before dawn{
They cheered, whistled and clap-1
ped loudly as Supt. James A. New-
man and Principal W. D. Human
told of plans to move all 850 of
them to a vacant grade school
building at nearby Oak Ridge,
probably by Thursday.
Students Enthusiastic
"We've been knocked down, but
we're not out," said Human, to
the obvious delight of the as-
sembled students, including 10 of
the 11 Negroes. About 85 students,
including one of two Negro boys,
were absent.
But even as the students
bounced, the FBI set up shop in a
vacant office across the street from
the- shattered school and began
working in typical closed-mouth
fashion to find the culprit in the
Rewards totaling $60,700 have
been offered for the arrest and
conviction of the dynamiter. The
state of Tennessee posted $5,000,
and officials of 47 southern cities
have a standing offer of $55,700
for solution of any southern bomb-
ings relating to integration.
FBI Helps
Officially, chief agent Gerald,
Gearty said, the FBI is here to
determine if the blast violated any
federal law. But it was obvious
that in so determining, agents are
gathering evidence which it hopes
will help in the state investigation.
Gearty said all FBI facilities
and personnel will be made avail-
able to local authorities to aid
them in the inquiry. Police Chief
Francis Moore, who is also chair-
man of the Anderson county school
board which operates Clinton High,
referred all questioners asking
about the investigation to the FBI.
Gearty answered none of them.
The explosions, three minutes
apart in three separate wings of
the school, came during a heavy
fog Sunday morning. They caused
$300,000 damage to the school,
built in 1927.
Clinton,, a town of 4,000 in the
Cumberland mountain foothills, is
20' miles northwest of Knoxville in
east Tennessee.

Pope Rallies A fterStroke,_Coma

-Pope Pius XII reportedly passed
a "peaceful night" and was be-
lieved to be rallying today from
his second grave illness in four
Millions over the world prayed
for the life of the Pontiff.
The brief report of the Pope's
condition this morning came at
6:30 a.m. from unofficial sources
at the papal summer palace. No
details were given.
The Pope suffered a stroke yes-
terday, lapsed into a coma, then
rallied and was "appreciably im-
proved" by nightfall.
An evening medical bulletin
said the 82-year-old leader of the
Roman Catholic church once
more had shown the remarkable
stamina that b r o u g h t him

Atomic Sub)
Einds Record
60Day Trip
NEW LONDON, Conn. (P)-The
atomic submarine Seawolf sur-
faced yesterday after a record two
months beneath the sea and came
home in glory.
Her skipper said she could have
stayed down twice as long.
One of the first to congratulate
her feat was the atomic sub Nau-
tilus from whom she snatched the
record with 60 full days under
'water, almost twice as long as any
vessel ever remained below before.
The Seawolf broke water on the
edge of the deep Atlantic, about
40 miles from this, her home port.
Then she moved in'on the surface
and tied up alongside her pier.
Among those on hand to greet
Capt. B. Laning and his Seawolf
crew after their historic trip was
Rear Adm. H. G. Rickover, "Fath-
er of the Atomic Submarine."
Later, at a news conference,
Captain Laning told about the
He said that it "demonstrated
in a remarkably routine way" the
ability of nuclear submarines to
remain under water "indefinitely."
Captain Laning later qualified
his reference to indefinite sub-
mersion, saying that he would es-
timate the time which an atomic
sub can remain under the surface
at "half again or once again as
long" as the 60-day-mark set by
the Seawolf.

Vaticansources said earlier the
Pontiff was partly paralyzed by
the stroke. But.it was not known
whether this condition persisted.
The medical bulletin made noa
reference to paralysis.
Issue Bulletin
"Since the medical bulletin is-
sued this morning," the night bul-
letin said, "the condition of the
Holy Father has appreciably im-
proved insofar as it concerns the
circulatory disturbances of this
"Most opportune and urgent
treatment has been carried out.
The constitution of the Holy
Father has shown once again its
great resistance. There is need for
further observation before issue of
a final prognosis (appraisal of
the course of the disease.)",
It was the Pontiff's sturdy
heart that carried him through
the illness in 1954, Prof. Riccardo
Galeazzi-Lisi, his personal physi-
cian, said at that time. And it ap-
parently was' his heart that was
helping him to rally again from
this new illness.
Specialists Sign
Galeazzi-Lisi signed the medi-
cal bulletin. Another signer was
Prof. Antonio Gasbarrini, a stom-
ach specialist from Bologne.
Only yesterday morning, when
things looked bleakest, Gasbarrini
had come away from the Pontiff's
bedside and told waiting report-
"All is in the hands of God."
There were reports the Pope
had received extreme unction, the

ST. LOUIS (P) - A Federal
Court extended the order yester-
day that prevents a Little Rock
corporation from leasing the
city's high schools and operating
them as private, segregated insti-
It scheduled the next hearing
on the case for Oct. 15 in St.
Legally, this freezes the situa-
tion in Little Rock. The schools
remain closed and beyond the -
'reach of the Little Rock private
school corporation.

But T. J. Raney, corporation
president, said his group will open
private schools as soon as pos-
sible, without waiting for the Oct.
15 decision. The corporation is.
looking for c l a s s r o o m space,
teachers, and money.
"We will open as soon as we get;
things rolling," Raney said.
Raney said he did not know
whether the schools can be opened
this week or next.
Three judges of the Eighth Cir-
cuit Court of Appeals heard at-
torneys representing the federal
government, the Little Rock
school board and the National As-
sociation for the Advancement of
Colored People yesterday,
Pleadings Short
The pleadings lasted exactly
one hour.
They concerned an NAACP re-'
quest for a preliminary injunc-
tion to freeze the situation in
Little Rock, pending action on an
appeal from an earlier ruling in
the case.
Two weeks ago, the NAACP
challenged the constitutionality
of the Arkansas law, authorizing
private corporations to lease the
buildings and facilities of the
public schools, and to use state
l funds for their support.
Y Federal District Judge John E.
Miller declined to accept #urisdic-
tion. He said the appeals court
would have to take the case. The-
s NAACP appealed Miller's ruling
