City health authorities began
an investigation yesterday of re-
ported horse meat shipments to
restaurants in Ann Arbor.
The investigation came several
days after Detroit police were told
by a driver for the Belleville Pack-
ing Co. that he had delivered 10
or 12 shipments of the horsemeat
to Ann Arbor and Lansing restau-
rants during the past two months.
ANN ARBOR Health Inspector
Gilbert Caswell said last night
four of five local eating establish-

Judge John D. Watts after a com-

director of the Board of Health's
first journey home since January;
creasing insistence from various Re-
- publican leaders that he declare
himself soon on whether he would
run for the Republican nomina-

The White House said not a
word about any political angles,
but Senator Duff (R-Pa.), an
Ike-for-President man, said he
intends to talk politics with Eis-
enhower while the general is
here. Duff didn't say when or
A Democratic senator, Gillette
of Iowa, said he doubted that Eis-
enhower is at the point of asking
1 to be relieved of his military com-
mand to run for President.
"IT SEEMS to me the General
would be very hesitant to leave a
mission partially completed," Gil-
lette told a reporter. He said the
Europeans are relying heavily on
"Eisenhower, the man," in their
confidence of building up a de-
fense against Communist threats.

John Eisenhower, at Ft. Knox,

Exercise Desert Rock, history's
first tactical use of an A-weapon,

moment a large bomb was dropped
by a B-29 flying at 10,000 feet.
The bomb burst at 10:30 a.m.

above the Yucca Flat test site.
IT WAS the fourth and loudest
explosion in the Atomic Energy

high winds which broke up the

empted from the 20 per cent
amusement tax under a provision
of a recent national tax bill which

season tickets or any single tickets
purchased before yesterday.

mediate effect, the Oratorical As-
sociation sold .-tickets for last
night's lecture at reduced rates.
