"Dulles was not liked so much,
especially because of his treat-
ment of the Suez crisis. He was a
little too dogmatic in his views,
but Eisenhower was liked despite
Dulles' foreign policy," Lee said.
Less Agreement
"However, there was probably
less close agreement between the
United States and Britain under
the administration than there had
been previously, especially about
Red China."
The maintenance of peace in the
face of trying circumstances, which
Thomas termed "no insignificant
feat," was one of the great ac-
complishments, Prof. Clare E.

s with Ike,

Griffin of the business adminis-
tration school said.
"We have had good economic
growth in this period and I think
that the government has done as
good a job as could reasonably
be expected in checking inflation
and in handling periods of re-
Prof. Griffin said that recessions
are part of the business cycle and
cannot be prevented by govern-
ment action, and he praised Eisen-
hower's "courage" in handling the
1957-58 recession the way he did.
"The course that the economy
traces out in any period is deter-
mined by the consumers and by
business, as well as the govern-
ment," Prof. Paul. W. McCracken
Budget Increasing
He explained that the budget
has been increasing about as
rapidly as the national income
during the past five years, but the
question of whether the adminis-
tration was too stern in budget
policy remains to be answered.
"The price level went up sig-
nificantly, which was not helpful
to the balance of payments prob-
lem," Prof. McCracken said. The
recent visibility. which the ad-
ministration has given to this
problem indicates at least a con-
cern for the nation's economic
He'bmentioned that "the Presi-
dent has repeatedly emphasized
the importance of increasing un-
employment benefits, and social
security has been liberalized un-
der his administration, taking
more people into its program."
Increased School Aid
In addition to social security,
Prof. George L. Grassmuck of the
political science department point-
ed to the increased construction of
clasrooms as evidence of the ad-
ministration's concern for domes-
tic progress.
He also cited a one-third in-
crease in the wages of manufac-
turing workers, an increase of
one-fourth in per capita disposible
income and a large gain in the
percentage of residents owing their
own homes.
"These dollar increases are not
due to inflation alone. From 1953
through 1960, the cost of living
went up 16 per cent. During the
period from 1946 through 1952
the rise was 48 per cent," Grass-
muck said.
Space Progress
"We did almost nothing in space
until 1952. Since then we have
pushed forward at the maximum
possible speed. We have 28 satel-
lites In orbit, and the Russians
only have eight."
Although Prof. Stokes praised
the "relaxation of internal politi-
cal strife," he said that Eisen-
hower should have publicly ap-
proved the 1954 Supreme Court
decision on civil rights.
"I feel that since the court
made a unanimous decision which
the lower judiciary in the South
was ready to implement, the Pre-
sident could have helped had he
given his moral backing."

WASHINGTON (J')-A group of
Louisiana businessmen were charg-
ed by Atty. Gen. William P. Rog-
ers yesterday of intimidating and
coercing a Negro because he com-
plained about voting rights to the
Federal government.
Rogers announced that a suit
to halt alleged discrimination was
filed against 11 individuals and 11
corporations in United States dis-

The complaint says economic
coercion has been inflicted on Jo-
seph Atlas, a farmer in Lake Prov-
idence, East Carroll Parish, La.
Atlas had complained to the
Civil Rights Commission about
what he called his unsuccessful ef-
forts to register as a voter. The
hearing was held at New Orleans

Most of the defendants were de-
scribed as cotton ginners. Rogers
said that all of them have refus-

top army man, on the President's role as commander-in-chief of the armed forces.
