Geri. Dwight D. Eisenhower riding on the crest of his 157,000-vote
victory over Sen. Robert A. Taft in the New Jersey primary, apparently
clamped a lid on personal campaigning yesterday.
Assured of 31 of the state's 38 presidential nominating delegates,
the five-star general indicated in Paris his sparkling absentee politi-
cal performance has solidified his determination not to campaign
actively on his return to the United States in June.
He has said he will not resign from the Army unless or until he
is nominated by the Chicago convention-a move that Taft has criti-

Not SeekingP
Nominat ion
By The Associated Press
Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson of Illi-
nois plunged the Democratic race
for the presidential nomination in-
to deeper confusion yesterday with
the announcement that he "could
not accept" a bid to become his
party's candidate.
Sen. Estes Kefauver of Tennes-
see greeted the announcement as
"very, favorable" to his own can-
didacy and invited Stevenson's
supporters to "switch to me."
Stevenson had formerly been the
chief opposition to Kefauver.
* * *
AT LEAST one party chieftain
siezed upon the fact that the Illi-
nois Governor said "could not"
instead of "would not" and said
that if the Democratic National
Convention stampeded for Steven-
son as the Republican convention
did for Wilkie in 1940, it would be
difficult for the Governor to re-
fuse the nomination.
With Stevenson out of the pic-
ture talk arose "that W. Averell
Harriman, now head of the foreign
aid set up might step in as the
party's "liberal" candidate to carry
on President Truman's fair deal
program. Harriman will be guest
of honor tonight at a testimonial
banquet in New York aimed -at
making him the state's favorite
son. New York has 94 votes at the
Democratic National Convention.
At the University, John Appel,
'53, temporary president of the
newly former Stevenson for Pres-
ident Club, said that the Club
would hold its scheduled meeting
next Wednesday. Appel said that
he thought Stevenson has a large
following on campus, but added
that if support all over the coun-
try should swing to some other
candidate or if the club as a whole
should show any other strong pref-
erence they might switch their
support.
Drug Cost Cut
B y 'U'_Project
Cheaper manufacture of cer-
tain drugs will probably be the re-
h sult of a research project conduct-
ed by two University faculty mem-
bers under the Phoenix project
sponsorship.
Prof. Carl A. Lawrence of the
Medical School and Prof. Lloyd
Brownell of the engineering col-
lege have found that drugs to be
injected into the human body can
be purified by highly preventative
gamma rays given off by radio-
active cobalt.
Pretious to the discovery it was
thought that only heat or chemi-
cal action could kill harmful
molds, yeast, bacteria and pro-
tozoa found in unsterilized vac-
cines, vitamins, and antitoxins.
But the heat treatment usually
lessens that strength of the drugs,
and other complications arise
when chemicals are used. Now
microscopic impurities can now
be eradicated easily and cheaply

with which some of Eisenhower's
supporters take issue.
BACKERS plan a speech for
Eisenhower in Abilene, Kan., his
former home town, early in June.
Some want him, to visit individual
states, such as Michigan, where
the status of convention delegates
is in doubt.
Others believe he will insist
upon taking a short vacation
without any intensive pre-con-
vention campaigning.
Sen. Richard Russell of Georgia
and Gen. Eisenhower were the big
gainers in this week's delegate se-
lections for the national conven-
tions, but Republican Taft and
Democrat Kefauver still lead their
respective party races.
*a * *
RUSSELL captured his first full
state delegation-a 16-vote South
Carolina group-which, with one
delegate already favoring him in
Nebraska, gives him 17 first bal-
lot delegates for the Democratic
Presidential nomination and moves
him into third place in pre-con-
vention choices.
Sen. Kefauver of Tennessee
returned to first place whenGov.
Adlai Stevenson of Illinois said
he could not accept the nomina-
tion "this summer.
The Republicans have now
chosen 419 of their 1,205 conven-
tion delegates and Taft is leading
the pack with 208 pledged votes.
Eisenhower trails with 119, and
Harold E. Stassen is running a
poor third with only 6 delegates.
Six hundred nine are needed to
nominate.
On the Democratic side 225%/
delegates have been selected
(number of delegates at large may
be doubled at a state's discretion
and each given half a vote) of the
1,230 going to the convention.
With 616 necessary to secure the
nomination Senator Kefauver has
40, Governor Hubert Humphrey
of Minnesota, 23, and Senator
Russell, 17.
Williams .Blasts
Tax Legislation
LANSING -OP)- Governor Wil-
liams called the Republican Leg-
islature's tax program a "fraud"
and a "patchwork" yesterday.
Williams made it plain that he
still is thinking of vetoing some
of the tax measures although the
legislature has threatened to re-
main in session so he could not
call a special session if he vetoes
the Republican program.
"I will not be hijacked into ac-
cepting a tax program, parts of
which are against the public in-
terest," the governor said.

estimate mounted to 28,583 flood-
affected families or about 100,000
persons.
Still packing a terrific wallop,
the swollen Missouri River en-
gulfed new thousands of acres
and flooded or threatened new
towns as the crisis area moved
southward.
But Omaha and Council Bluffs
were still dry. The line of defense
ran along 23 miles of levees which
in recent days have been bolstered
by a hastily-recruited army of
8,000 men.
The Omaha River level passed
the 28-foot mark, nearly four
feet higher than ever previously
recorded, with the levees still
holding. The crest-maximum
flow is due at 9 p.m. today.
As the President called for ac-
tion, the Mississippi River at St.
Paul neared its alltime high crest
with 5,000 homeless and property
damage estimated by Mayor Ed-
ward K. Delaney at upwards of
10 million dollars.
In a report to the President Lt.
Gen. Lewis A. Pick, Chief of the
U.S. Army Engineers, declared that
the destructive floods "could have
been avoided" if flood control
plansi recommended by U.S. en-
gineers in 1926 had been carried
out.

Taft appeared quite chipper at
the press conference and an-
nounced "I'm as healthy now as I
always have been" when queried
about effects of strenuous cam-
paigning on his health. "Cam-
paigning is good exercise," he re-
marked.
AUDIENCE reception of Taft's
speech was largely favorable ex-
cept when he extolled Senator
McCarthy and the House Un-
American Activities Committee for
their "service to the country."
While many eagerly applaud-
ed these remarks, quite a few
spectators greeted them with
boos and hisses.
After speaking briefly at the
luncheon in his honor Taft stopped
for a moment to greet members
of the Grandmothers' Club which
was meeting in the League and
then roared off to Lansing in a
three car cavalcade headed by a
police car and followed by two
black limosines.
Some controversy arose yester-
day over the University's position
in authorizing a political speech
by the Senator. A Regent's ruling
states that regulations regarding
speakers "shall be administered by
the Committee on University Lec-
tures, with the understanding that
they are designed to serve the edu-
cational interests of the academic
community rather than the poli-
tical interests of any party or
candidates."
However, a committee spokes-
man said last night this does
not necessarily constitute a ban
on political speeches. Committee
members have indicated in the
past that they felt the educa-
tional value of having a presi-
dential candidate appear on
campus was more important
than the fact that it would have
political overtones.
Altogether the rally cost Taft
backers between $600 and $700
according to club treasurer Ned
Simon, '54, who reported that the
money has already been raised.
Rental fees on Hill Auditorium
should run around $50, according
to University sources.

SL DefersI
"U' Leciture
Policy Stand
By DIANE DECKER
Despite attempts of several'
members to force reconsideration
of Student Legislature's stand on
the Lecture Committee, in view of
the recent all-campus referendum,
no action was taken at last night's
meeting.
The first reference to the issue
came early in the evening, when
visiting former - SL president
George Roumell, now a law stu-
dent at Harvard, recommended
that action be taken on the
matter.
* * *
SPEAKING IN the interests of
"academic freedom," Roumell
questioned the committee's use of
the speakers' ban against Mc-
Phaul, while letting Taft make an
avowedly political speech on cam-
pus. He felt that the University
was receiving unfortunate publi-
city through its recent usage of
the ban.
Although three inembers at-
tempted to suspend the order
of business after cabinet reports
to bring up the question, they
could not obtain the necessary
two thirds approval. Valerie
Cowen, '54, did succeed in mov-
ing discussion of the SL.stand
from new business, where it al-
legedly has been buried for six
weeks, to old business.
However, the meeting adjourned
berore old business could be con-
sidered. The SL to date has fav-
ored student representation on the
controversial committee, but the
opinion registered on the referen-
dum- has led many legislators to
feel that further action should be
taken.
It was suggested by a reliable
source that last night's "stall tac-
tics" were used to keep the ques-
tion open until the Campus Ac-
tion Committee's report at next
week's meeting.

Honesty in
Government
Demanded
Attacks Present
MilitaryPolicy
By VIRGINIA VOSS
Sen. Robert A. Taft delivered a
campaign blast at the Truman ad-
ministration's "corruption" and
philosophy of expansion of gov-
ernment" yesterday before an
overflowing lunch-hour crowd in
Hill Auditorium.
Greeted by a standing ovation
from 5,000 students and Ann Ar-
bor residents, the Ohio Senator
immediately assured the audience
that "a Republican candidate will
promise to appoint honest men to
office and return integrity to the
federal government in Washing-
ton."
TAFT'S LOCAL appearance was
part of a hectic one-day stay in
Michigan with stops at Detroit,
Ann Arbor and Lansing. Com-
ment in a press conference on the
visit's political objectives, Sen.
Taft predicted he could secure "28
or more Michigan delegates to the
Republican National Convention."
He had only one thing to say
about his loss in New Jersey
Tuesday: "The results were no
surprise-in fact they were bet-
ter than expected."
In the colorful Hill Auditorium'
rally sponsored by the campus
Taft for President club, Sen. Taft
presented three issues the Repub-
lican pbxty must place before the
November voters: 1.) immorality
and ccrruption in government;
2.) "liberty vs. socialism"; 3.) Tru-
man's foreign policy.
ATTACKING recent tax scan-
dals, the campaigning Senator
said he didn't think Americans
have ever "paid taxes with en-
thusiasm,"' but they have a right
to expect that tax payments won't
be compromised by "influence."
The bulk of his speech was
aimed against what he saw as the
New Deal and Fair Deal trend
towards socialism.
His statement that "it is the
young people who are primarily
interestedl in restoring progress
in our free system" brought an
ovation from the packed aud-
ience.
Praising the liberty of indus-
trial development which has built
up the U. S. standard of living,
"Mr. Republican" said "there is
no reason why we should not dou-
ble the standard of living in the
next 50 years" providing we act on
methods which worked in the last
50 years.
HE STATED that his methods
would center around reduction of
taxes. Expressing agreement with
national economists, Sen. Taft em-
phasized that the country can't
maintain a free economic system
if the government takes more than
25% of individual incomes. The
present administration plans to
take over 30% he said.
On 'the third issue of foreign
policy, Sen. Taft charged "Truman
threw a bi-partisanship policy out
the window" when he neglected to
