Dwight D. Eisenhower was quoted
by his top aide yesterday as saying

"I am happy to report this ef-
fort is now being made in good
measure," said Gen. Alfred M.
Gruenther, Eisenhower's Chief of
Staff in Europe.
Gruenther testified at a closed
session of the Senate Foreign Re-
lations Committee. His prepared
statement later was made public.

indication of good progress in

When reporters sought to get
from Gruenther some estimate
of when his boss, North Atlantic

commander, might feel free to
return to the United States, he

"The boss told pe several

more value to him if I stayed out

Eisenhower said last week he'
was being forced to re-examine
his personal position by the results
of primaries which show that
many Republicans 'vant him to be
their party's presidential nominee.

MEANWHILE, Rep. McCormack

Student leaders of the Residence Halls decided yesterday to ask
the dormitory councils to pay for damage suffered by the University
during Thursday night's demonstration.

Dies A fter
Long .illness
Prof. Roger L. Morrison, of high-
way engineering and highway
transport, and curator of the
Transportation Library, died Sun-
day night at his Ann Arbor resi-
dence after a long illness.
Associated with the University
since 1924, he joined the faculty as
an associate professor of highway
engineering. He was appointed full
professor in 1928 and curator in
While on the University facul-
ty, he served as a member of the
Ann Arbor Common Council for
two years.
Before coming to the University,
Prof. Morrison taught at the Uni-
versity of Tennessee and the Arch-
itectural and Mechanical College
of Texas and served as engineer of
tests for several corporations.
Prof. Morrison had been on sick
leave from the University for the
1951-52 year. He is survived by his
wife and a daughter.
Funeral services will be held at
2 p.m. tomorrow in St. Andrew's
Episcopal Church.

the University amounted to $180,

O halls. This figure includes $130
damage at the Martha Cook Bldg.
Of the $180 damage, $106 was
for glass, $37 for screens, $35 f or
an ash stand, and two dollars for
a door handle. Janitorial service
was not included in the figure.
(It was reported that the Univer-
sity does not carry insurance to
cover damage incurred during
Schaadt said he was very
pleased with the "wonderful but
somewhat unexpected offer.
"I have always, believed the stu-
dent body at Michigan willing to
shoulder its share of responsibil-
ity and I think this plan proves
it. It certainly is a compliment
to the students."
sent the plan to the individual
houses fordapproval during the
next few days, and then meet
again Friday to decide upon the
percentage of the $180 dollars to
be paid by each body.
The money will probably come
from the treasuries of the Wom-
en's individual houses and the
men's quadrangles.
The possibility of paying for
damage to fraternity and sorority
houses and for loss to individuals
will also be discussed with the
house groups during the week.
(Delta Gamma sororityhreported
that it suffered almost $40 dam-
age Thursday.)
THE PLAN to reimburse the
University for damage was formu-
lated Sunday at a meeting called
by the executive committee of the
Student Legislature and attended
by the dorm chiefs and other cam-
pus leaders.
The following statement was Is-
sued by the dorm leaders yester-
"A special committee consisting
of the women's residence halls

mittees of the three men's resi-

working towards making financial
restitution for the University dam-
age incurred."

Wilson Hits
U.S. Steel
Talks End With
New Proposals
WASHINGTON -()- Charles
E. Wilson said last night there is
no question but that government
recommendations for settling the
steel wage dispute, if put into ef-
fect, would threaten the economic
stabilization program.
"Of that I am sure," he said.
.* *, *
WILSON, the mobilization di-
rector, talked with newsmen on his
return from talks with President
Truman at Key West, Fla., where
he had said he had a plan which
would avoid the steel shutdown
now threatened for next month.
Wilson said he planned to ar-
range conferences as soon as
possible with leaders of the steel
industry and the CIO Steelwork-
ers Union.
Interviewed at National Airport,
Wilson was asked if he thought
the proposals for settling the dis-
pute which the Wage Stabilization
Board made last week broke
through the formula for wage in-
"I wont comment on the-formu-
la," he said, "but I'll say this:
* *
"THERE IS no question in my
mind but that if the wage in-
creases contemplated under the
WSB's recommendations are put
into effect, it would be a serious
threat in our year-old effort to
stabilize the economy."
The wage board had recom-
mended that the steelworkers be
given a three-installment wage
boost of 17 cents, plus other
benefits which it said would
amount to the equivalent of 5 cents
an hour. Average wages now are
just under $2 an hour.
Wilson said he had a "whole
series of plans," apparently just
discussed with Truman in Key
West, to meet "various eventuali-
ties" in the situation.
AIM Chooses
Gene Mossner
As President
The slowly reorganizing Associa-
tion of Independent Men barely
achieved a quorum last night at
their meeting in the Union to
unanimously elect Gene Mossner,
'52, president and Bert Braun,
'54, vice-president.
The representatives of the ten
independent houses present also
elected Al Green, '53, recording
secretary, Dick Wolf correspond-
ing secretary and Bob Tarkington,
'53E, treasurer.

hectic discussion carried on above
the blare of the Union Opera re-
he rsal of AIM's strength and pur-
pose-a question that has been
tossed about for more than five

Some of the members present
argued that the elections and
any discussion of future plans
should be delayed until the pro-
posals of the quad councils for
inter-dormitory government were
made clearer.
Braun maintained, however, that
AIM was solely a service organiza-
tion and could not interfere with
the quad councils since it was not
a governing body.
Mossner expressed the opinion
that AIM had survived its "crisis"
of the past five weeks but could
not afford to let up on its efforts.

Candidates Enter Finalt
Week in Wisconsin T1est
MILWAUKEE-(PA)-A promise and a warning were tossed at the
Wisconsin electorate yesterday as Presidential aspirants weaved
through the State in the last week of campaigning for delegate votes.
Sen. Kefauver, joined by his wife in the final fling for the State's
28 votes at the National Democratc convention, made the promise
to a crowd of 300 assembled in the courthouse square at Janesville in
Southern Wisconsin.
If not successful in his bid for the nomination, Kefauver declared
"I will be out in front fighting to help elect a Democratic President."

Agree Upon
MUNSAN, Korea, Tuesday,
March 25-.T)-Truce negotiators
agreed quickly today to clamp a
news blackout on prisoner ex-

New Immigration
Plan Draws Fire
McCarran Criticizes Truman's
Request To Admit Extra 300,000
Sen. Patrick McCarran (D-Nev.) foe of Administration immigra-
tion policies, last night had a good deal to say about President Tru-
mans proposal made yesterday to allow 300,000 additional European
immigrants into this country in the next three years.
Sen. McCarran, who has two pieces of his own legislation pending
to solve the problem of migration from congested Europe, told The
Daily in a telephone interview that he regarded 100,000 additional im-
migrants as the maximum that should be allowed to enter the United
One of Sen. McCarran's proposals is the creation of a special
Senate Committee to study overpopulation and migration in Europe.

Stassen told an audience at
Dodgeville, in Southwestern
Wisconsin, that ex-governor
Phil LaFollette was trying to
slip back into. power by running
as a delegate-at-large pledged
to the candidacy of Gov. War-
ren of California. La Follette
was an avowed backer of Gen.
Eisenhower until the latter de-
clined to enter his name in the
primary here.
"I wish to point that La Follette
is not authorized to represent Gen.
Eisenhower in the Wisconsin pri-
mary and is attempting to trick
the Republican voters," Stassen
"His record of isolationism and
third party attempts clearly show
that the La Follette-Warren slate
is not entitled to the support of
Republicans of Wisconsin and that
it is misusing the name of Gen.

IN A 4,000 WORD program
drafted at the Little White House
in Key West, Fla. and presented to
Congress yesterday, Truman out-
lined a three point program for
European migration problems:
"(1) Provide aid for the un-
fortunate victims of oppression
who are escaping from Communist
tyranny behind the Iron Curtain.
"(2) Continue our participa-
tion in the international effort
now being made to assist in the
migration and resettlement
throughout the world of a sub-
stantial number of persons from
overpopulated areas of Western
"(3) Authorize additional immi-
gration into this country, on a lim-
ited basis, to aid in alleviating the
problems created by Communist
tyranny and overpopulation in
Western Europe,"
At the end of this year 400,000
refugees will have resettled in the
.United States under provision of
the- Displaced Persons- Act. The
President's new proposal is de-
signed to replace the -DP act.
SEN. MCCARRAN expressed
agreement with the President
about the seriousness of the prob-
lem. "I desire modernizing our im-
migration and naturalization
laws," he said.
Then he outlined his program.
"My Senate committee's study
should be one which would deter-
mine places on earth suitable for
people who would be moved from
Europe," he said.
ALONG WITH his view that
only 100,000 additional refugees
be admitted, McCarran believes
they should be carefully selected
people who would work in agrarian
occupations in order to add to our
food production.
Here in Ann Arbor, Prof. Wil-
liam Haber of the economics de-
partment, said last night "im-
migration has never hurt the
United States economically. It
has not caused unemployment--
immigrants are not merely job
seekers. They add to the labor
force, contribute to production,
and add to consumer demand."
Prof. Amos H. Hawley of the
sociology department said, "I
wouldn't be surprised to see the
cumulative effect of these immi-
gration policies change the quota,
According to Prof. Hawley, most
of those who have come over un-
der the Displaced Persons Act have
gone into industrial centers. "But
they apparently are doing very
well," he said, "they come at a
favorable time and are no prob-
lem at all."

FINNEGAN'S face flushed as he
heard Judge Hulen sentence him

Then the judge gave him- two

Judge Hulen gave-him a verb-

lead of the House Ways and Means

Included in an omnibus state
institutional construction bill re-
ported out on the floor were $1,-

ish the Out-Patient Clinic.
The House committee reported
out a similar bill Friday.
Legislators have been hinting
for some time that therewould.
be no money for any construction
not already in progress.
Observers saw slim chance that,
with both houses receiving similar
bills from committee, that funds
for the $4,250,000 library expan-
sion program and the $12,500,000
medical building could be restored
on the floor.
