Maher Pasha Out
CAIRO--()-King Farouk to-
day appointed Ahmed Naguib Hi-
laly Pasha, an Independent, as
Prime Minister of tene and heavi-
ly guarded Egypt.
The palace announcement said
Farouk had accepted the resigna-
tion of Prime Minister Aly Maher'
Pasha, whose non-party govern-
ment had ruled since Jan. 27 un-
der martial law, which continues.
Maher quit Saturday just before
he was to have begun peace moves

For several hours before the pal-
ace announcement that the 60-
year-old Hilaly was taking over
Egypt was without an effective
government but was on the alert
Police patrols filled Cairo's
streets on the lookout for violence
as news of the crisis spread.
Political informants said Hilaly
Pasha is trying to line up a gov-
eminent including some indepen-
dents from Maher's cabinet, plus
members of three leading minority
parties-the Saadists, the Liberal
Constitutionalists and the Nation-
This would give him a coalition
cabinet to carry out the Anglo-
Informants said leaders of these
parties would have to refer to par-
ty leaders today before giving
Hilaly a final answer.
Meanwhile, political sources said
former Premier Nahas Pasha, head
of the fiery nationalist Wafdist
Party which holds a big majority
in Parliament, has summoned an
emergency meeting of Wafd lead-
ers in Cairo tomorrow.
Maher Pasha met for an hour
with his cabinet yesterday morn-
ing. Striding out, he tersely told
reporters he was ctTftting. He gave
no reason, but political sources
said his move may have been
touched off by a dispute with the

Pasha, said the 69-year-old leader
resigned because of "inability to
work due to mysterious currents
behind his back."

Truman To Talk
President To Ask Senate Pledge
Of Defense Aid to West Germany
WASHINGTON-(P)-President Truman will carry to the country
his fight for a $7,900,000,000 foreign aid program with a nationwide
radio and television address Thursday night.
He is expected to appeal for public support in what may be a
fight with a critical Congress.
At about the same time, Congress is expected to receive the
President's program for new overseas military and economic aid,
calling for about $7,900,000,000 in fresh appropriations.

The Huntley-Crary plan, de-
signed to extend Christmas vaca-
tion to a period of five weeks be-
tween semesters, will get a thor-
ough airing at the conference, ac-
cording to Jerry Warren, '52,
member of the conference's steer-
THE PLAN is being co-spon-
sored by Prof. Frank Huntley, of
the English department, and Prof.
Douglas Crary, of the geography
In brief, the Huntley-Crary
proposal is aimed at providing a
five week vacation period at
Christmas time, extending from
the middle of December through
Thus, students would take their
finals prior to the extended
Christmas vacation, and would
not return until February.
TO COMPENSATE for the time'
lost in January, school would be-
gin at the University on Sept. 1.
According to Prof. Huntley,
the plan attempts to eliminate
short vacation periods which do
not allow either students or
faculty to accomplish a great
"A five-week vacation,",Prof.
Huntley said, "would enable stu-
dents to hold jobs for a profitable
time, give others a good rest, and
would even permit faculty mem-
bers to take brief trips to Europe."

He is expected to underline Sec-
retary of State Acheson's conten-
tion that the Foreign Aid Program
"deserves our utmost support."
The announcement of the
President's speech followed close
on the heels of a report that
the Truman Administration will
ask the Senate in a few weeks,
to pledge help to Western Ger-
many in case she is attacked.
The idea is to extend to the
West Germans the security guar-
antees in the North Atlantic De-
* * *
THE PURPOSE of this action
by the United States, and parallel
actions by other Atlantic Alliance
members, will be to give the Ger-
mans the security guarantees they
have asked as part of their price
The guarantees would not
become effective except on a re-
ciprocal basis--that is, Western
Germany would have to promise
that it also would consider an
attack upon any member of the
North Atlantic Alliance as an
attack upon itself.
Meanwhile, political observers
said yesterday that labor opposi-
tion threatens Chancellor Konrad
Adenauer's whole program for
arming West Germany to help de-
fend free Europe against the
menace of Soviet aggression.
LESS THAN a week after the
Atlantic Allies approved plans at
Lisbon to include up to 400,000
German troops in the European
Defense Community, leaders of
six milion West German organized
workers refused to endorse Ade-
nauer's defense policy.

Greece and Turkey were welcomed
into the Atlantic Defense camp by

bans resulted in crowded off-cam-
pus appearances of the dizuted
DEVRA LANDAU, '52Ed, chair-
man of the Civil Liberties group,
stated yesterday she was confident
Greene's appearance would be ap-
proved. Other members of the
club, who felt that the recent ac-
tivities of the Un-American Acti-
vities Committee in Detroit and
the approaching budget appro-
priations of the State legislature
would restrain the committee,
were less optimistic.
Whether or not Greene will

Icemten Halt MSC, 6-2;
Spartan Five Stops_'M'
By HOWARD ROBINSON
The Michigan hockey express
took one period to get rolling, but
when it did, it had more, than
enough steam to roll over a hap-
less MSC squad, 6-2.last night to
net its fourth straight win over
the Spartans this season.
As in past encounters between
the two rivals, play was marked
by numerous penalties and little
MICHIGAN STATE jumped in-
to an early 1-0 lead at 2:12 of the
opening period when Weldon 01-
son grabbed a loose puck and
slammed it into the Michigan net
which was left unguarded by Wol-
verine goalie Willard Ikola who
left his post to clear the puck.
Michigan had a few chances
to knot the score, before Earl
Keyes finally got the puck past
MSC goalie Del Reid. Keyes'
goal came at. 10:52 after Jim
Haas carried the puck into the
Spartan zone and hit the side of
the net. Paul Pelow grabbed the
puck and passed it out to Keyes
who had no trouble beating
The second stanza was faster
and much rougher. At 5:35, George
Chin put the Wolverines ahead for
a few seconds after taking a pass
from Pat Cooney and beating the
Spartan goalie from close ranige.
THE LEAD was short-lived,
however, as seven seconds later
Jack Mayes grabbed the puck af-
ter a center-ice face-off, skated
over the blue line, and blasted a
30 foot shot over Ikola's shoulder.
Michigan then put the pres-
sure on for the next few min-
utes and pushed across two
quick markers which proved to
be more than enough for vic-
tory. Bob Heathcott scored the

basketball team lost its tenth of
13 conference games last night as
Michigan State avenged an early
season defeat, 80-59, before 8,624
partisan fans in Jenison Field
The victory gave the Spartans
a league record of six wins against
A total of 65 personal fouls
marked the rugged contest.
Michigan collected 35 of them.
After the first few minutes of
play, the McCoymen were never,
in the game. Two- quick lay-up
shots by Jim Skala and one by
Don Eaddy pushed the Wolverines
into the game's only deadlock at
THEN THE VICTORS began to
roll. The first period ended with
the home team ahead 18-12. At
intermission time the count stood
Michigan had its best quarter
after half time when they out-
scored the Spartans, 18-16, but
things went back to the general
trend of the game in the final
stanza as the victors racked up
23 tallies to 17 by the losers.
Two State seniors, Bob Carey,
and' Bill Bower, personally ac-
counted for half of the Spartan
points. All-American football end
Carey totalled 25 tallies with nine
field goals and seven free throws to
lead both squads in scoring, while
Bower aollected 15 points.
High point man for Michigan
was Eaddy, who scored eight two-
pointers and two charity tosses for
18 tallies. Eaddy seemed to be the
Wolverines' only spark in an other-
wise lifeless offense. Skala was
runnerup in Michigan's scoring
with 11 points.

Surprise by Ike

The presidential "race took on
several new aspects this week-
end, with just about every candi-
date getting into the picture.
A Republican senator created a
bit of a sensation Friday by en-
dorsing Democratic Senator Rus-
sell of Georgia for the presidency.
Senator Young of North Dakota
said Russell is "superbly qualified
to become president" and saidhe
would back him "if the Democrats
have sense enough to. nominate

HE SAID he didn't see how,
Democrats, particularly in the ag-
ricultural mid-west "could fail to
support him." No member of Con-
gress, he said, knows more "about
the intricate farm problems or is
more sympathetic to them."
Meanwhile, there was activity
in the Eisenhower camp. The
general, who has said he wil
accept the GOP nomination for
the presidency but will not cam-
paign for it before the July
convention, yesterday talked to
two of his backers in Europe,
But after the meeting with Mal-

Senator of New Jersey, and Kevin

Argentine Jail :
By The Associated Press
A former University student was
released Friday night after having
been a prisoner of the Argentine,
government for fifteen days.
Saul Saulson, 23 years old, who
was enrolled here as a freshman in
194647, was placed in the custody
of the U.S. embassy in Buenos
Aires. Presumably, he had been
jailed in connection with an al-
leged radical party plot against the
life of President Juan D. Peron,
Embassy officials said Saulson
is in good health.
SAULSON went to Argentina in
December to visit a cousin, a radi-
cal party leader. The cousin, Isaac
Weisburd, is missing, and some
members of his family are report-
ed jailed. According to a member
of the Weisburd family, Saulson
speaks little Spanish and knows
nothing of Argentine politics,
U.S. Ambassador Ellsworth
Bunker, who had protested the
young tourist's detention, said
he expects an order completely
releasing Saulson early next
Saulson's parents, who reside in
Detroit, did not learn of their son's
imprisonment until last Thursday,
when a United Press reporter con-
tacted them. Al Blumrosen, '53L, a
cousin of Saulson's, said he tried
without success to telephone Eva
Peron Friday, hoping to enlist her
aid in releasing his cousin.

public. Reaction has been widely split with supporters of the Com-

FOR TWELVE men and women, accused of being Communist
Party workers, the Committee's presence in Detroit meant loss of their
jobs. Others met with associates' cold shoulders and an indignant
press. A few faced near-violence.
While Motor City trade unions took their share of the verbal
lashing, Michigan's educational system received a severe beating
at the handes of pirate Congressmen and the fourth estate.
Detroit public schools perhaps took the brunt of the blow in the
educational probe owing to the heralded disappearance of alleged Red
Eleanor Cook Maki. Her. classroom "competence" reportedly caused
grave concern among Detroit " mothers who felt they were being
ALTHOUGH Committee members steadfastly maintained they
were not intending to visit Ann Arbor, Mrs. Baldwin's testimony put
the University in the limelight during the latter part of the week.
University administrators said .none of the cited "cells" had
been recognized by the administration. Existence of the "Ralph
Nefus" Marxist study group was acknowledged by several officials
who claimed it was a "non-dangerous" organization which dis-
banded last year.
The "Hal Dane cell" was not recalled by any administrators,
while "AA Town" was reportedly entirely composed of townspeople.
A top-ranking University officer said last night the administration
had recognized- a "Marxist Club" several years ao.n but it was eventui-
tion with Red groups both on and off campus. Another subpoenaed
alumnus was Yugoslav John Cherverny, former president of the
Detroit chapter of American Youth for Democracy.
Raphael Haskell and Lebon Simmons, both ex-Ann Arbor stu-
dents, also were accused of Communist membership and refused to
answer questions put by the Committee.
Cherverny, who claimed a band of fellow factory workers tried
to lynch him after his appearance before the Committee, was
ousted from his job as was Mrs. Maki.
Among others losing employment were: Joseph Bernstein, Detroit
News artist; union steward Paul Henley and his wife; Walter Dunn
of the Wayne County Sheriff's Department; Elliott Maraniss, copy-
reader for the Detroit Times; Jules Yanover, Detroit Symphony vio-
linist; and Patrick Rice, UAW-CIO officer.
