Industry and education joined hands yesterday as nearly 400 busi-

progress in the field of atomic research.
Sponsored by the Michigan Memorial Phoenix Project, the "Atom

cational, and economic implications of atomic energy in peace-time
use and exhibition tours to campus research facilities.

On the truce talk front, Vice-
Admiral C. Turner Joy agreed to
meet again today at Panmunjom
as U.S. Fifth Air Force fighters
reported five MIGs destroyed in

What right does a President
have to seize private property?
The only hint given on how long
it may take to reach a decision
came from Justice Jackson.
He said from the bench that he
would oppose handing down any
decision until the opinion has
been written.
OCCASIONALLY, in an impor-
tant case, the Court announces its
ruling and then hands down a
formal opinion later. Jackson said
he would oppose such a procedure
Most of the arguments yes-
terda were devoted to (1) dam-
ages, and (2) whether President
Truman should have used the
Taft-Hartley Act instead of
seizing the mills, as he did on
April,. 9.

John W. Davis, 79-year-old for-

didate, spoke for the companies.
Davis said there was no way to
figure how much the companies
may be hurt. But he saidrSecre-

The students were, placed on

Steve Smale, Grad. The other
three students, who were notified
Saturday are Valerie Cowan, '54,
Dave Luce, Grad. and Myron

According to Shaffer the only
channel of further appeal is
through President Hatcher's of-
fice. "We have decided on no ac-

IN AN opening session devoted
to the. scientific background of
atomic science, University scien-
tists explained basic nuclear re-
search at the University and the
uses of radiation and isotopes.
Opening the afternoon ses-
sion, Dean E. Blythe Stason of
the Law School examined the
legal problems arising from
atomic energy development. One
of the primary conflicts, he ex-
plained is "how far govern-
ment censorship can cut across
the normal judicial process."
A n o t h e r featured speaker,
President Harlan H. Hatcher cited
the importance of research in
the "dross-fertilization o f t h e

West Answers
Russian Plan
For Germany
By The Associated Press
The Western Powers told Russia
yesterday they will talk about
German unification-and about a
peace treaty after that is achieved
-only when the Kremlin gives
evidence it really means business
and is willing to grant freedom to
the Germans.
Identical notes from the United
States, Britain and France advis-
ed the Soviet Union that:
1. There can be no discussion of
a final peace treaty, as was pro-
posed in the Russian note the
West was answering, until there is
a unified and free German gov-
ernment to deal with.
2. That government must have
real freedom of action.
3. And the way to set it up is
through unfettered all-German
elections under conditions to be
worked out by an actually impar-
tial commission'with access to the
whole country, not by a four-pow-
er commission as the Reds had

IF RUSSIA insists on rejecting
the commission set up by the Uni-
ted Nations for this purpose, the
three Western Powers said they
would consider "any other practi-
cal and precise" plan-aside from

In submitting their proposal,
the United States, Britain and
France firmly rejected the Soviet
demand that a unified Germany
must be forbidden in advance to
join the Western defense line-up.

referendum on a site failed by a
12-23 vote.
This appeared to be the final
attempt by the group advocat-
ing a Washtenaw Avenue site
outside the city limits. In April
a one month delay gave
the Washtenaw group time to
present their plan more fully
when it seemed certain passage
on the newly approved site
would be obtained.
The new Court House will be a
U shaped structure bounded by E.
Huron, N. Main, N. Fourth and
E. Ann. It will provide room for
services now housed in the old
building and many departments
located in other buildings.
A three story structure, the new
Court House will be designed so
an additional three stories can be
added if more space is necessary
*5 * *
THE BUILDING'S U shape will
enable use of the old structure un-
til sufficient work is completed on
the new one to allow moving in.
A second feature of the new build-
ing will be parking space in the
rear for upwards of 200 cars.
Previous plans for use of the
approved site met with disfavor
because they did not provide for
parking or for accommodations of
activities of the present court
house. during the construction
Other factors favoring the use
of the present Court House lo-
cation included: nearness to
trains and bus depots, accessa-
bility for townspeople and law-
yers, central location for the
county's population, present
ownership of property and lo-
cation next to county jail.
The vote on the bond issue ap-
pears to be the last great obstacle
before construction actually be-
gins according to Mack C. Taylor,
chairman of the Ann Arbor Citi-
zens Court House Committee
which strongly advocated the ap-
proved site.
In 1950 a similar bond proposal
was defeated by a small margin.
Board member Ruth Dana and
city councilman Professor Arthur
D. Moore, of the engineering col-
lege, predicted approval in the
November elections.
They cited the desperate need
of the new structure and the fact
that the voters will probably turn
out in larger numbers as reasons
for a favorable vote.
Taylor estimated construction
would take about 14 months once
it got under way.

ocratic high command who of-
fered him the Democratic nom-
ination on a platter."
Carlson said Eisenhower turned
his back on the bid.
Countering assertions that Eis-

the Truman Administration's for-
