Dwight D. Eisenhower Intends to
make a determined effort next'
month to find out whether Soviet'
Premier Nikita Khrushchev really
wants to come to terms on any
major East-West issue.
Officials said yesterday this is
Eisenhower's central purpose in
approaching the Big Four summit
conference with Khrushchev, Pres-'
ident Charles De Gaulle of France
and Prime Minister Harold Mac-
Millan of Great Britain. It will
guide Secretary of State Christian
A. Herter in a series of meetings
here next week with allied foreign
ministers on summit preparations.
Herter is expected to tell his
allies during the three days of
strategy talks that the western
powers must be ready for any
grandstand plays by Khrilshchev.

Secretary of State Christian A.
Herter denounced yesterday a re-
cess agreement made by his own
disarmament negotiator at Ge-
But he said that since the deed
was done he would let it stand.
The agreement provides for
about a five-week recess in the
10 - nation Geneva disarmament
conference until after the summit
meeting at Paris in late May.
Herter's statement came close
to being a rebuke for Ambassador
Fredrick M. Eaton, New York

many banking and industrial firms

Some State Department offic-
ials §aid privately that Herter did
not intend the statement to be a
rebuke or reprimand. Others
equally familiar with the circum-
stances said there could be no
doubt that a declaration by the
Secretary of State deploring the
agreement Eaton announced yes-
terday was a slap for the man in
Herter's statement came as the
climax of a series of comments
which indicate at the least some
kind of brbeakdown in communi-
cations between him and Eaton.
Eaton and the British, French,
Italian and Canadian delegations
were reported hopeful that the
conference could make some pro-
gress toward disarmament if the
summit meeting agrees at least

The steering committee for the
repertory theatre in Ann Arbor
recently sent a summary of all
that Ann Arbor could offer for thej
theatre should it come here, to
Tyrone Guthrie, Oliver Rea, and3
Peter Zeisler, who plan to estab-
lish such a theatrein acommunity
other than New York.
It was noted in the letter thata
since 1951 various avenues to a
professional company in Ann Ar-
bor have been investigated
In January, 1959, the first def-
inite step in this direction was to
employ Louis Simon, a member of1
the board of the American Na-
tional Theatre and Academy to
investigate the possibility of es-
tablishing "a truly great repertory
theatre" in this area.
Simon found the theatre situa-
tion in Ann Arbor "highly en-1
couraging." He recommended that
such a theatre should operate4
under University sponsorship and
that the highest calibre of pro-
fessional leadership would be
The following summer was spent
exploring possibilities of Imple-
menting Simon's report to make
an Ann Arbor repertory theatre
Then in September of 1959 Ty-
rone Guthrie, Oliver Rea and Peter
Zeisler announced their plan to
form a repertory theatre in an
American community other than
New York, which could be a focus
of fine theatre.
Guthrie and Rea arrived in Ann
Arbor last November for a two
day visit. They stated exactly what
they proposed and what the com-
munity must offer to attract a
venture of this type.
Since then a steering committee
for the theatre has been formed
in Ann Arbor to plan and prepare
the community for active sponsor-
ship of the project.
Conferences with University of-
ficials have resulted in the admin-
istration's enthusiasm for the
Guthrie-Rea-Zeisler proposal. The
Regents made an offer of land for
the theatre and academic support.
The Ann Arbor City Council
passed a resolution favoring the
theatre, and the City Planning
Commission said that it could
make an important contribution
to the over-all future structure of
the city. The Board of Commerce
gave enthusiastic support to the
preliminary work which has been
accomplished this year.
The letter went on to express
the numerous advantagesAnn Ar-
bor holds for a repertory theatre,
such as the large potential region-
al audience that it "already con-
ditioned to finding in Ann Arbor
a center for its culturalineeds."
The May Festival annual sells
out 4,900'seats to each of six con-
certs to guests from all over the
country including some 5,000 stu-
dents who attend each year. The
Lecture Series draws 30-35,000
annually. The Choral Union Con-
cert series attracts 37,000, and the
extra series (five concerts) sold
22,000 tickets this year.
The Drama Season, since the
1920's has played to an audience
of 25,000 each spring and the
speech department plays draw
The Civic Symphony and Civic
Ballet sold out a 1,800 seat theatre
for two imported dance programs
last year, and the Ann Arbor Civic
Theatre has an audience of over
2,000 for many of its plays.
The steering committee set up
the mechanics for a local fund
raising drive which will be part
of a state wide operation. It is
ready to select a leader and has
set a tentative goal of $250,000
from the area.
Community enthusiasm has
been aroused through a series of
coffee hours at which the project
was explained and illustrated with
color slides. One result has been
numerous offers of financial sup-
port should Guthrie, Rea and
Zeisler chose Ann Arbor for the
The steering committee esti-
mates that at least 10,000 season
tickets could be sold in Ann Arbor
and the surrounding territory,
which might underwrite 50 per
cent of the operating expenses.
The decision for the theatre has
been postponed at least until
April 18-19, since other cities com-
peting for the theatre have not
yet clearly stated what they can
offer the theatre.
