On Candidacy
Eisenhower Speaks Out in Answer
To Dewey's Published Backing
NEW YORK-(A)-Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower yesterday thanked
Gov. Thomas E. Dewey for suggesting him as a 1952 presidential cand-
idate, but indicated that he hasn't changed his mind about staying
out of politics.
The General, who repeatedly has expressed determination not to
run for public office, said his convictions about how he can best serve
"the cause of freedom" have not changecd.
However, two New York newspapers quoted unidentified sources
close to Eisenhower as saying the General would submit to a draft for
the GOP nomination.
Eisenhower's statement came after Dewey, titular head of the
,Republican party, said he favored the wartime Allied supreme com-
mander as the GOP's presidential nominee two years from now. Eisen-
hower said in a prepared statement:
"Any American would be com-
plimented by the knowledge that

WASHINGTON - (/P) - Eco-

taxes, stiffer curbs on credit, and
longer working hours in America
to win what he described as "truly
a fight for survival."
Symington said he believes it
may be possible to avoid general
price-wage controls in the immedi-
ate future "if we could jet over
the psychology of scare buying."
but, he declared:
"We are now getting organized
for such price and wage action as
may be needed."
The federal' official spoke out
for further "cuts and sacrifices"
even as protests mounted against
a new series of government re-
strictions on installment buying.
The new regulations, effective
today, call for higher down pay-
ments on many hosusehold rrticles
and a shorter pay-off time for
them and for new and used auto-
Some spokesmen for ousiness de-
nounced the Federal Reserve
Board's latest action, tightening

18, as too hasty and "a terrible
blow" to business.
The board said they were neces-
sary to combat inflation.
Symington, in a copyrighted in-
terview published by U.S. News
And World Report, a weekly iews
magazine, made no direct refer-
ence to these complaints, but he
"We must have stro'g credit
controls to cut down civilian buy-

The agency said the rejection

Nehru Blasts
Demands Admission
Of Communist China
NEW DELHI-(IP)-Prime Min-
i'ster Nehru, in a major statement
of India's policy ,opposed yester-
day the American-supported plan
for United Nations military forces,
on the ground that it would turn
the U.N. toward war rather than
peace. He also strongly opposed
American policy toward Commu-
nist China.
Nehru said the idea of U.N. arm-
ed forces to combat aggression,
substance of a seven-nation pro-
posal now being debated, was "a
wrong approach."
Nehru also blamed much of the
woes of Asia today upon the fact
that Communist China has been
kept out of the United Nations.
Calling this an "astounding phe-
nomenon," he added that any
foreign policy based upon non-
recognition of the "new China" is
"wrong and leads to unreal and
imaginary results."
He declared that India feels the
problems. of combatting Commu-
nist expansion fundamentally "is
a problem of winning the under-
standing and good will of the
masses of the *orld." He said that
"unless people have some hope in
the future held out to them, they
seek other remedies."

Unrecognized Founding Date Remains on'M' Seal

Regent's rulings to the con-
trary, most copies of the Univer-
sity seal are marked 1817.
Seals on textbooks, letterheads,
notebooks, pennants, plaques-all,
with few exceptions, say, "Univer-
sity of Michigan-1817."
But in 1928 the Board of Re-
gents declared 1837 to be the offi-

the margin, and a light shining on
the dome from above; and until
such a seal shall be provided the
President may use any temporary
seal which may be convenient."
A substitute must have been
found, for the original seal was

until 1895.
It was then that President An-
gell decided it was time that a new
and more original design be made.
The old Minerva seal was quite
similar to the drawing in the front
of the Webster Spellers.
So the present Lamp of Know-
ledge seal was made up and has
been the official emblem of the
