Williams Backs U' Proposal
For Med, Library Buildings

The Williams' administration
has definitely committed itself to
support the University's plans to
build a $12,500,000 medical science
building and a $4,000,000 library
Gov. G. Mennen Williams has
announced that he will recom-
mend that $250,000 be appropriat-
ed to the University to draw up
plans for a new medical building.

With big Chuck Darling, Bob

several powerful bids by the Wol-

TAKEN AS a whole, Gov. Wil-
liams' recommendation for con-
struction and overhauling was
also considerably less than re-
quested by the University. The
governor proposed a grand total
of $3,988,203 while the University
requested $5,385,000.
Williams recommended $1,-
308,403 for completion of the
Angell Hall addition and $726,--
800 for completion of the out-
patient clinic. On this score,
the governor and University of-
ficials saw eye to eye.
He also concurred with their
request for $68,000 to draw up
plans for expansion of the heating
plant, a project which would even-
tually entail a cost of $750,000.
THOUGH THE University re-
quested $750,000 for the rehabili-
tation of University Hospital, Wil-
liams recommended only $325,000.
The governor shattered some
of the other aspirations of Uni-

French Coalition
Cabinet Resigns

Truman and British Prime Min-
ister Churchill yesterday reviewed
the West's grand strategy for
countering international Com-
munism in a second formal White
House meeting.
A "top secret" label was clamp-
ed on the specific problems dis-
cussed during the 90-minute af-
ternoon session. Aides reported no
decisions were reached. But there
was good reason to believe the two
leaders and their military aides
talked over:
1. A COMPROMISE plan for
settling British-American argu-
ments over appointment of a
United States admiral to head the
Atlantic, Pact naval forces. The
U.S. was reported about ready to
give in on this issue.
2. Britain's campaign to get
the U.S. and other western ar-
mies to use the new British .280
rifle as standard equipment,
Britain reportedly was willing
to give up its efforts in this
3. Britain's desire for an ex-
change of top secret atomic in-
formation with the United States.
THE AFTERNOON meeting, the
second formal White House con-
ference between the President and
Churchill, concentrated mainly on
urgent western European defense
A terse White House state-
ment said only that "several
military matters were present-
ed and received consideration,"
and that talks would resume to-
day at 11 a.m.
Before the late afternoon ses-
sion started, Secretary of State
Acheson conferred with British
foreign secretary Anthony Eden
for 50 minutes at the State De-
partment to discuss German and
western European problems.
THE STATE Department pro-
vided no details on this unsched-
uled meeting.
The second Truman-Chur-
chill meeting followed a morn-
ing session at which the - two
English-speaking leaders tack-
led the critical raw materials
They also were reported to have
agreed tentatively then on a need
for streamlining the executive
machinery which guides the 12-
nation North Atlantic Treaty Or-
ganization (NATO).
Churchill, sporting his gold-
topped cane, and the President,
dressed in a gray double-breasted
suit, talked for one hour and 40
minutes in their initial formal
meeting in the White House cabi-
net room.

Talks Segen
Dead locked;
By The Associated Press
Russia's Andrei Vishinsky told
the United Nations yesterday that
Korean armistice negotiations had
been "floundering" for six months
and were "deadlocked."
There was growing feeling in
some quarters here that if the
Korean negotiations did not
achieve positive results in a short
time, say two or three weeks, the
UN command might have to re-
sume active military operations.
Vishinsky urged that a special
meeting of the Security Council
try to lift the talks out of the
stalemate and help the negotia-
tors along.

IN MUNSAN, the Communists,
in weird stalling tactics at the
Korean armistice talks yesterday,
"acted like schoolgirls who had a 1
secret and weren't telling their
friends," the UN command spokes-t
man declared.
Allied delegates at this for-
ward camp had no comment on
the connection between Vishin-
sky's move and the Communist
tactics at the truce talks, but it
appeared that the Red delegates
were making sure there would
be no progressswhile Vishinsky
made his pitch.

To Get Nomination
PARIS-(-4)--Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower told the world yesterday
that if the Republican party convention asks him to run for President
of the United States he will give up his command here and enter
the race.
But the General said he would not quit his job to campaign for
the nomination.

THE GENERAL'S statement was read to several score correspon-
dents in supreme headquarters, Allied powers in Europe (SHAPE) 22
hours after Sen. Lodge of Massachusetts had announced in Washing-
ton that Eisenhower was a Republican and that his name would be
entered in the March 11 primary in New Hampshire. Senator Lodge
is spearheading a campaign in the General's behalf.

The appointment which extends
for three and a half years was
approved by the Board of Regents
Dec. 22. Prof. Angell asked to be!
relieved from his position in order
to devote more time to teaching.
Prof. Hawley has been a mem-
ber of the faculty since 1941. He{
received his BA degree from the
University of Cincinnati in 1936,j
his MA from the University in
1938 and a PhD in philosophy

Local Men
Cheer :ike's
Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower's
announcement that he was avail-
able for the presidential race
found disfavor in most European
quarters yesterday, but Ann Arbor
political experts were generally
agreed that Europe's loss was defi-
nitely the Republican party's gain.
The faculty's most enthusiastic
comment on the long-discussed
move came from Prof. James K.
Pollock, chairman of the political
science department - "This is
wonderful news."
Recently returned from a two
weeks stay in Washington, Prof.
Pollock stated that he had expect-
ed Eisenhower's move for some
time. "I am exceedingly happy
that the general ha; seen fit to
make himself available for the
Presidency. He is just the man
to lead the country in this critical
juncture in world affairs," the
political scientist emphasized.
PROF. HAROLD M. Dorr,' also
of the political science department
s a w Eisenhower's momentous
statement as a move that would
"strengthen the progressive ele-
ments of the Republican party."
Prof. Dorr announced that he had
been afraid up to now that pros-
pective nominee Taft would fix
the character of the Republican
party for the next four years.
"Very good strategy," was
Prof. Samuel J. Eldersveld's
summary of the general's state-
ment. According to Prof. Eld-
ersveld, Eisenhower's decision to
stay out of pre-convention ac-
tivities and stick with his NATO
job in Europe will keep his pres-
tige at its present high, working
to the detriment of Taft.
Stating that Eisenhower has an
"excellent chance," Prof. Elders-
veld predicted that Taft will not
have more than a third of the
Republican convention's delegates
"sewed up" by July.
ON THE student side, the cam-
pus' leading "Ike" backer, Dave
Cargo, Grad., president of the
"Eisenhower for President" Club,
was all set to pass out campaign
"It is refreshing to have a
really popular independent-
thinking constructive candi-
date," Cargo commented.
Recently elected Young Repub-
lican president, Floyd Thomas, '52,
noted that "the party should wel-
come Gen. Eisenhower's announce-
ment. It clears the way for a
thorough airing of the differences

Emphasizing the great weight
he attaches to his job as com-
mander of North Atlantic Pact
Forces, Eisenhower's statement
"There is no question of the
right of American citizens to
organize in pursuit of their com-
mon convictions. I realize that
Senator Lodge and his associates
are exercising this right in an
attempt to place before me next
July a duty that would tran
scend my present responsibility.
"In the absence, however, of a
clear cut call to political duty I
shall continue tp devote my full
attention and energies to the per-
formance of the vital task to
which I am assigned."
