'Peace Quest'
U.S.-Indian Relations
Seen at New High;
All Problems Erased
NEW DELHI (P) - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower and Prime
Minister Jawaharlal Nehru held
private talks last night on a range
of pressing world problems.
Early today the President and
Nehru flew from New Delhi to
Agra to visit the Taj Mahal and
continue their discussions.
Met by long-waiting crowds,
Eisenhower and Nehru set off on
scheduled tours of an agricultural
center and a farming village near
the ancient city.
Last night's meeting came after
a dinner Eisenhower gave for
Nehru at the United States am-
bassador's residence. There was no
official announcement on the
ground covered, but reliable in-
formants said the talks centered
on issues ranging from India's
border troubles with Red China to
world disarmament.
Gives Tribute
The stage for their latest meet-
ing on this fourth day of Eisen-
. bower's visit to India was set by a
glowing tribute from Nehru to
Eisenhower's "pilgrimage in quest
of peace."
A United States official said the
three hours of discussions Eisen-
,hower and the leader of the
world's most populous democracy
have had previously were "exceed-
ingly cordial." He declared United
States-Indian relations at the
moment were at the highest peak
since India became independent.
M. C. Chagla, Indian ambassa-
dor to Washington, said Eisen-
hower's visit to India will open "a
new chapter in world history."
Ease Tensions
One major result of the Eisen-
hower - Nehru meetings so far
seems to be an easing of tension
betveen Pakistan and India-long
at loggerheads over boundaries,
water rights and the princely state
of Kashmir claimed by both na-
The Indians are reported to have
been assured that United States
military aid to Pakistan is granted
as an ally in the anti-Communist
SEATO pact and not a menace to
This seemed implicit in Nehru's
repeated statements that there are
no problems between India and
the United States. /
Discussing his visit next year to
Moscow, Eisenhower is said to
have told Nehru he believes Soviet
Premier Nikita Khrushchev is also
searching for a formula for an
insured peace.
To Issue Communique
A communique the two will issue
before Eisenhower's departure is
expected to dwell on the principle
of negotiation rather than force to
settle disputes. It also is expected
to declare that disarmament is the
only means of warding off the an-
nihilation of humanity.
The unprecedented outpouring
of affection for Eisenhower from
the masses the past three days was

NEW DELHI (R -It took Com-
munist China to start the tide of
free Asia turning toward the
United States.,
But it took President Dwight D.
Eisenhower and the impact of his
personality to demonstrate dra-
matically that the tide is really
running strong in American favor
at this moment.
United States troubles are far
from over in Asia. But United
States fortunes are, enormously
improved since the time America's
motives were greeted with wide-
spread suspicion among nervous
governments struggling out of the
colonial era.
cAs Prime Minister Jawaharlal
Nehru pointed out Friday, the
timing of Eisenhower's visit is
most important. Nehru hints at

this by referring constantly to the
visit "at this hour."
Cites. Timing
The reason for this insistent
reference to timing seems obvious.
Eisenhower's visit follows a series
of events which made the sub-
continent and the rest of south
and southeast Asia highly ner-

suffocation of Tibetan freedom,
truculent gestures against Bhu-
tan, Nepal and other border areas,
belligerent incursions into Indian
territory and even nastiness to
once friendly Indonesia.
But Nehru knows the Eisen-
hower visit somehow has got
across to the men in the street-
as well as to the educated public
-that India has a big and power-
ful friend ready to come to their
aid against the huge northern
neighbor apparently restless for

Since the end of World War II, Ann Arbor has been faced witl
remendous growth which, from all indications, will continue.
The city has increased in area by 119 per cent since 1946. Popu

It is the function of the City Council, the Planning Commission

Why is Ann Arbor growing?
Primarily because the University, the main economic base of th
ity, is constantly expanding.
State Support Determinant
There are, of course, different projections of growth for thf
University. And the first variable in any projection is the amount o:
tate support, which determines the capacity of the University ti

"But an average increase of 600 students each year to a total o:
2,000 is possible and foreseeable," John McKevitt, assistant to the
Jniversity vice-president in charge of business and finance, said.
"The most desirable level of enrollment is a matter of question,'
e added, "but 32,000 is an adequate basis for planning, although tho
ntensity of University operations is not based solely on enrollment.'
