No Agreement in
Oil Controversy
Union Leader Declares Intention
To Intensify Oil Worker's Walkout
By The Associated Press
President Truman said yesterday he was working hard to settle
a week-old strike of oil workers, but a CIO Union leader in Denver
declared "we intend to intensify the strike."
The oil case has not gone officially to the White House. How-
ever, the chairman pf the Wage Stabilization Board (WSB), Nathan
P. Feinsinger, said it probably would be sent to Truman if the WSB
fails to end the strike.
FEINSINGER'S PLEA for an end to the walkout pending a WSB
hearing in Washington May 13 was rejected in nenver Wednesday by

Two months of controversy over
three speakers the Young Progres-

a head today when the Lecture
Committee decides on the pend-

Also slated for today's meeting
is the release of -specific charges

THE SPARK that touched off
the long tussle between the Lecture

of McPhaul, executive secretary of
the Civil Rights Congress.

"Genocide against the American

Ikse', Taft
Disagree on
Foreign Aid
,By The Associated Press
Two leading contenders for the
Republican presidential nomina-
tion split sharply yesterday over
the size of the foreign aid program
needed to guarantee American se-
curity during the next 12 months.
Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower said
Congressional proposals to cut
foreign aid by one billion dollars
would be "heavily and seriously
feIt"-and that cuts substantially
beyond that point might endanger
U.S. security.
"I DO NOT at all agree," Sen.
Robert A. Taft of Ohio declared at
a Hartford, Conn., news confer-
ence when informed of Eisenhow-
er's statement.
The Senator said a cut of even
two billion dollars, bringing mu-
tua security spending down to
about six billion for the next fis-
cal year, "would in no way en-
danger the program or the se-
curity of the United 54tes,
Eisenhower's views were express-
ed ina message to Sen Connally
(D-Tex), chairman of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee.
He told Connally there can be
little question but that the na-
tion's mutual security policy is
gradually stabilizing "the inter-
national scene.
The commander of the North
Atlantic Treaty forces spoke in
guarded terms and said his state-
ment about aid funds was based
on a number of assumptions. These
included the assumption that the
financial computations of Presi-
dent Truman's $7,900,000,000 for-
eign aid bill have been "compe-
tently made on the basis of our
military requirements."
Eisenhower is giving up his in-
ternational command June 1 and
returning to the United States,
where he is being boomed for the
Republican Presidential nomina-
Pay Increase
For Military
Gets Approval
WASHINGTON - (P) - A 4 per
cent pay increase for al persons
in the nation's armed services was
agreed upon yesterday as a Con-'
gressional compromise.
It would cost the government
nearly half a billion dollars a year.
Termed a "cost of living" boost,
the measure would raise the pay
of 31/2 million persons in the Army,
Air Force, Navy, Marines and four
smaller uniformed services.
It would also boost food and
rent allowances 14 per cent for
everyone from Private to General.
The compromise was worked out
by a Senate-House Conference
Committee appointed to adjust
wide differences in military pay
bills passed by the two branches
of Congress.
Both the House and Senate must
approve the compromise and Pres-
ident Truman must sign it before
it becomes effective. If that is
done before this month ends, the
increases will apply to May mili-
tary payrolls.
Droned from the measure was

>0. A. Knight, President of the
Oil Workers International Union
(CIO). Knight, spokesman for 22
AFL, CIO and independent unions,
said the strikers would take part
in the WSB hearing but "we must
continue striking until settlements
are reached."
Negotiations have been in
progress on a plant-by-plant
basis throughout the country.
One of the key discussions be-
tween the CIO Union and the
Tide Water-Associated Oil Co.,
collapsed at San Francisco Wed-
It was reported the company of-
fered 15 cents an hour raise plus
shift differential increases. The
unions first demanded 25 cents
more an hour plus 6 and 12 cents
for the shift differentials. How-
ever, Knight has indicated that
any company offer of 181/2 cents
hourly plus shift differentials
would be accepted.
Meanwhile in Washington, the
Government yesterday forbade
the delivery of aviation gasoline
to re-sellers or consumers who
have as much as a three-day
supply on hand.
Secretary of the Interior Chap-
man, who took the action, said it
was "a further move to conserve
scarce supplies" because of the
nation-wide strike of oilworkers
which has affected roughly one
third of the industry.

'Take Whatever
Action Necessary'
PUSAN, Korea, Friday, May 9-
()-Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway has
ordered the U.S. Eighth Army "to
take whatever action is required
and to use whatever force is nec-
essary" to free Brig. Gen. Francis
T. Dodd, a hostage of Communist
prisoners of war on Koje Island
for more than two days.
The Red prisoners today con-
tinued to ignore an army demand
for his release.
.* * *
EIGHTH ARMY headquarters
said at 9:30 a.m. (5:30 p.m., Ann
Arbor time) that messages from
Dodd were being received by tele-
phone from the Communist com-
pound on Koje.
It said American-cooked meals
were being passed to the gen-
eral through the compound
gates. Prisoners in the compound
were quiet last night, hea lquar-
ters added.
Dodd, who was sent to Koje sev-
eral months ago to tighten up
control of the stormy prison com-
pounds, was seized Wednesday by;
hot-head Communist prisoners.
He was reported well. Appar-
ently Dodd was attempting to ne-
gotiate his own release.
* * *
RIDGWAY, who leaves Tokyo
Monday to become Supreme Com-
mander of Allied Forces in 14r2
ope, called the seizure -of Dodd a
flagrant disregard 'of authority.
He said the United Nations
Command had given the Com-
munist prisoners fair treatment
and would continue to do so.
He gave his stern orders to Gen.
James A. Van Fleet, Eighth Army
Commander, last night before end-
ing his farewell visit to Korea.
The U.S. Eighth Army said cor-
respondents would not be permit-
ted to travel southward from Seoul
to Pusan or Koje today. News of
Dodd's seizure at the turbulent
prison camp 26 air miles southwest
of Pusan was withheld for nearly
two days.

IFC Discusses Plan.
ForCooperative Buying
As a result of a discussion yesterday about the possibility of orga-
nizing a Steward's and Food Buyer's Association, Inter-Fraternity
Council leaders have decided to go ahead with the tentative forma-
tion of a co-operative buying program.
The panel discussion was attended by fraternity presidents and
stewards and the various aspects of the problem were reviewed, al-
though no definite decision was reached.
Comprising the panel were Francis C. Shiel, manager of Uni-
versity service enterprises; Homer Heath of the Ann Arbor Trust Co.;
Herbert P. Wagner, Food Service Business manager; Joseph Fee, As-
sistant to the Dean of Students; and H. Sieger Slifer of the IFC
Alumni Association.
** * *
ONE OF THE PROPOSED models for the organization 'is the one
used at the University of Wisconsin.
The Wisconsin plan as outlined by Fee involves the hiring of
a buyer to whom fraternity stewards could send in daily orders
for food and fuel. Since the subsequent buying would be in volume,
substantial discounts could be obtained and the only extra charge
would be the buyer's fee.
Heath, who handles many fraternity accounts, pointed out that
such an organization has been tried several times in the past and has
failed, because of lack of fraternity cooperation and a central pur-
chasing agency.
THE POSSIBILITY OF buying through the food service was

"The Republican Party must

up," Prof. Harold Dorr of the po-
litical science department, told a
meeting of the Young Republicans
last night.
He warned the YR's that they
must not anticipate winning an
election on a platform which sim-
ply points out the shortcomings of
the Democrats but present a posi-
tive program.
Prof. Dorr's remarks ushered
in a discussion in which two
types of platforms were suggest-
ed by members of the club.
One was to "out radical" the
Democrats and if necessary adopt
those aspects of the Democratic
program to which the people have
given their approval. Supporters
of this position pointed out that
the country has seen prosperity for
the past 20 years under Democra-
tic policies and during prosperous
times people have never favored a

to offer alternatives to Democratic
