Asks Fund Start
For Building



of a Dynasty?

Committee Says-
Not To Get on Ballot
LANSING (1P) - Life flickered
yesterday in Gov. Williams' recom-
mendation for a king-size capital
outlay program starting later this
year 'or in 1961.
But the flame was low.
This much emerged from an
hour-long, closed-door conference
Thursday in the governor's office
between Williams and the Repub-
lican-controlled House Ways and
Means Committee.
The huddle came less than 24
hours after the deadline for com-
mittee action on the governor's
proposal for creation of a state
building authority.
The authority was urged as a
financing device for 164 millions in
new building over the next three
or four years.
Only heroic measures could re-
vive the apparently dead bill, but
Williams and Rep. Arnell Eng-
strom (R-Traverse City) commit-
tee chairman, said that some
thought was being given to a
November ballot proposal.
This would ask the people to
vote on whether to pledge the
state's faith and credit behind a
large block of bonds for new
buildings. No figure was men-
tioned. Although it would delay
any actual construction, it would
produce a lower interest rate on
state borrowing.
Williams and Engstrom made
clear there were no commitments
on this or any other course of
It was understood that Republi-
can committee members would talk
over the problem with colleagues,
perhaps get a caucus decision and
return for further talks next week.
Republican legislative leaders
have been trying to get together
on a pay-as-you-go program for
1960-61 ranging from $7 to $15
Colleges, universities and men-
tal institutions are down for the
lion's share of projects recom-
mended by the governor.
Williams said that over all
building needs of the state for
the next flive years have been
put at as much as $600 million,
and that colleges "view with hor-
ror" his advocacy of 150-million
Willams Says
New Interests
DETROIT ('-"The true liberal
is always seeking new vistas," Gov.
G. Mennen Williams said here
last night.
"While most men are worried
about making safe landings, the
true liberal is busy taking off to
explore new possibilities," he said.
The governor spoke at the 13th
annual Franklin D. Roosevelt Day
dinner of the Detroit chapter of
Americans for Democratic Action.
Peace is not an end in itself,
Williams told the group, but must
be a part of the effort to elevate
the human condition.
"We must work to abolish the
barriers to dignity in our own
country," he said. "Foremost
among these are discriminatory

succeed her late husband as Oregon's Senator. She filed as a

GOP" Budget
LANSING ()-The Republican
$403-million general fund state
budget for 1960-61 started moving
yesterday in the Legislature.
Bills carrying $107 million for
mental health, public health, cor-
rections and airport construction
aid purposes reached the halfway
point in the legislative trip with-
out change.
There was some debate on the
$73.8 million mental health bill, up
nearly $3 million for 1959-60, and
one attempted $1 million addition
to the public health bill for can-
cer research.
But beyond that the four bills
were voted through the Senate
and into the House without inci-
Supplemental Funds
Trailing along with them was a
bill providing about $4.3 million
in supplemental funds to carry
cash-short agencies through the
current fiscal year.
Despite a one-man fight by Sen.
L. Harvey Lodge (R-Waterford),
the Senate refused to write into
the mental health bill language

ment of children in available fa-
The proposal for more money
for cancer research came from
Sen. Harold M. Ryan (D-Detroit).
Schedule Debate
The House marked time on the
budget bills being started from
that end of the capitol, setting
Monday night for the start of
In the Senate, the $107 million
higher education bill and a token
that ultimately will carry the
1960-61 capital outlay program
were held over until next week.
There has been some complaint,
notably from Michigan State Pres-
ident John A. Hannah, about al-
lowances for state colleges and
No Material Changes
Sen. Elmer R. Porter (R-Bliss-
field) doubted any material chan-
ges will be written into the bill.
The corrections bill, for $17.1
million, carried $400 thousand for
a start on a new prison camp for
women to be built near Brighton.
The women's institution will be a
pioneering project of its kind in
the nation.
By a 56-38 vote, the bare mini-
mum needed for passage, the
House approved a bill prohibiting
hospitals from detaining patients
until their bills are paid or ar-
rangements made for payment.

U.s. Mills
n Cuba
HAVANA (') - Cuba's revolu-i
tionary government yesterday
seized three United States-owned
sugar mills worth an estimated1
$10 million.
In reporting the takeover, the
newspaper "Revolucion" said1
workers at the three mills "have
always been victims of exploita-
tion of Yankee functionaries who
always maintained close relations
with (ex-dictator Fulgencio) Ba-
tista's officials."
The mills, located in Eastern
Cuba, are the Israel, Los Canos
and Soledad. They are owned by
the Guantanamo Sugar Co. of New
York City.
The takeover was a joint action
by the Institute of Argarian Re-
form and the Ministry for the
Recovery of Stolen Property. The
agrarian institute now controls
and operates 32 of Cuba's 161
sugar mills.
Issue Statement
Officials of Guantanamo Sugar
Co. later issued a statement say-
ing authorities had informed them
the intervention would be of short
duration and was for the purpose
of investigating possible links with
the Batista regime.
The officials said no one associ-
ated with the Batista regime was
ever a stockholder in the company
and expressed belief that investi-
gation would prove such allega-
tions "to be completely false and
The government also announcwdi
intervention in the management
of the Guantanamo Railroad Co.,
which is Cuban-owned but oper-
ated by the Guantanamo Sugar
Co. The Agrarian reform institute
will run the railroad,
Acquire Stockpile
Informed sources said meanwhile
Cuba has acquired a huge stock-
pile of arms since Prime Minister
Fidel Castro took power Jan. 1,
The informants gave this pic-
ture: The weapons have come
from European sources despite a
United States embargo on arms
shipment to the troubled Carib-
' One of the biggest purchases
Cuba has made has been an esti-
mated 25,000 Belgian automatic
rifles of a new type being adopted
by the North Atlantic Treaty Or-
One source said the Cuban army
has more of these new rifles than
the United States.
Most of the munitions have
come from Belgium, including
rifles, rifle ammunition and gren-
ades. The French ship La Coubre,
which exploded in Havana harbor
a week ago, carried almost 80 tons
of such munitions.

Prospects for a satisfactory ar-
rangement between the European
Free Trade Association and the
European Eiconomic Community
are now somewhat brighter, Nor-
wegian Commerce Minister Arne
Skaug said.
At a press conference in Ham-
burg recently, Skaug expressed
hope that realistic negotiations
would soon be initiated between
the seven-nation EFTA and the
six-member Common Market.
Earlier during his extended tour
on West Germany, the Commerce
Minister emphasized the urgency
of finding a solution to Europe's
trade policy problems.
He warned that if it takes too
long to agree on the concessions
that must be made by both par-
ties, irreparable damage may be
done to the structure of European
production and commerce.
Addresses Association
Addressing the German Parlia-
mentary Association at Bonn,
Skaug rejected the idea of a glo-
bal solution to European trade
difficulties, since the trade among
European countries is far greater
than their collective trade with
the rest of the world."
"If Europe can achieve a multi-
lateral solution of its own prob-
lems, I am convinced that prob-
lems of trade relations with our
friends across the North Atlantic
can also be solved." N
Skaug observed that Norway
has special reasons for keen in-
terest in free world trade and
speedy unification of Europe's
commercial policies. The country
exports almost half of its gross
n ..tional- product, as opposed to
o :e-sourth for West Germany,

Nearly three-fourths of Nor-

Facilitates Solution
The Norwegian minister
stressed that the EFTA conven-
tion is in every way designed to
facilitate a solution to Europe's
trade problems. "A prolonged

"would certainly have a grave ef-
fect on political cooperation as.

Moreover, a durable solution o

There's no better way to travel any-
where than a United Jet Mainliner.
The DC-8 is fast, of course. It
whisks you coast to coast in a few
short hours. But it is more than fast.
It is quiet and smooth ... flies up
where the air is serene and peaceful
... with hardly a vibration from the
powerful engines.
The DC-8 Jet is comfortable, too.
It has big, wide aisles that even a
giant football tackle can roam in,

Environment for Exploration
the John Jay Hopkins Laboratory for Pure and Applied Science at General Dynamics' General Atomic Divisoo
In San Diego, California, is a modern center of research and development, where new ideas and techniques are
vigorously pursued. Here, strong engineering and development activities are matched with broad basic theoret-
Ical and experimental research to create an ideal environment for productive efforts In the nuclear field.
Here, advanced work is underway on the High Temperature Gas-cooled Reactor (HTGR), which promises to be a
major short cut to the nation's goal of economic nuclear power. The prototype HTGR plant will be constructed
by .1963 for Philadelphia Electric Company and High Temperature Reactor Development Associates, Inc,
Here, engineers and scientists work In a creative atmosphere on other advanced programs, Including the MGCR
gas-cooled reactor and closed-cycle gas turbine system for merchant ship propulsion ... TRIGA reactors for
training, research, and isotope production, which are now being Installed on five continents ... small nuclear
power systems... test reactors... nuclear power for space vehicles ... thermoelectricity ... controlled ther-
nonuclear reactions.
Rapid expansion of these programs has-lea to increased engineering activity and created openings for men, pre-
ferably at the graduate level, who seek a high degree of individual responsibility coupled with unusual opportunities
to demonstrate their initiative and ability.
