"Mess' --Taft
DELAWARE, . - ' - Sen.
Robert A. Taft, most powerful
voice in the Republican-controlled
Senate, declared yesterday the Ei-
senhower administration is on its
way toward "cleaning up the mess
in Washington."
"The 34-day-old administra-
tion," Taft said in his first major
speech on the national political
situation since the presidential
election, is busy disposing of the
Truman "legacy ofdmistake after
mistake, burden after burden."
*4 * *
IN A "Republican Day" address
to some 1,800 Ohio Wesleyan Uni-
versity students, Taft detailed
these problems confronting the
Republican party:
" . ..A mess in international
relations, a mess in Korea and a
philosophy and plan for spen-
ing that will be hard for us to
And Taft capped his analysis of
politics past and present with
this comment about the future:
"I don't think the Russians are
going to start another world war.
They are now in a position where
they can make some gains without
fighting. If they risk all in another
world war, they may find com-
munism-their brand of commu-
nism-wiped out."
On the "mess in Korea," Taft
was brief and blunt. He said it is
a war resulting from-the Demo-
cratic administration "practically
inviting the Communists to come
in." There appears to be no solu-
tion except to maintain "a very
strong military position in a situa-
tion Where it is almost impossible
to win."
Festival Needs
New Director
The Inter-Arts Union currently
needs a student director for a
play to be presented during its
Fifth Annual Festival, according
to Anne Stevenson, '54, vice-pres-
ident of the group.
A director will be chosen by the
club along with 'actors, singers
backstage and committee workers
for the festival during a meeting
at 5 p.m. today in the League.
Works composed by University
students which will be performed
during the festival include , an
opera, a play, dances, music and
poetry. Paintings, sculpture and
other art works are now being ac-
cepted for an art exhibit, to be
shown in conjunction with the fes-
"The purpose of the Inter-Arts
Union is to perform and integrate
all forms of art being composed
or written by University students."
Miss Stevenson said. "We will wel-

come students studying in any de-
partment or college in the Univer-
sity," she concluded.

UN Teams

Vishisky's Move
Awaited by West
- President Eisenhower's new
team in the UN gave its plans a

Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Y.
Vishinsky to make the first move.
Vishinsky,,never known to talk
much in advance about his plans,
arrived in New York yesterday
true to form and almost match-
ed Lodge's silence.
Here in brief are the issues be-
fore the Assembly:
1. Korea. Lodge is slated to
handle this item. The U. S. dele-
gates are expected to stand behind
a peace plan approved last Decem-
ber by a 54 to 5 Russian vote.
2. Disarmament. The Unit-
ed States stands pat on the pro-
posal of Western Powers for an
over-all ceiling on the size of
armed forces in each country.
The Russians havearejected it.
3.Collective measures. This con-
cerns measures to be taken to de-
velop sufficient UN forces to meet

4. CHARGES by Greece that
Communist countries with the ex-
ception of Yugoslavia are detain-
ing Greek military personnel cap-
tured during the Greek Civil War.
5. A complaint by Czechoslo-
vakia that the U. S. interfered in
internal affairs of other coun-
tries by organizing subversion
and espionage in the Iron Cur-
tain countries.
6. Measures to avert the threat
of a new war. This is Moscow's
peace package as put before the
UN by Poland. The Assembly is
expected to kill it after having to
listen to long debates.
7. Question of impartial investi-
gation of charges of use by UN
forces of bacteriological warfare.
8. Appointment of a secretary-
general of the UN. Trygve Lie has
resigned but has agreed to stay
on until his successor is approved.

Spartan Foundation
Head Tells of Subsi
Group on Camp1usO

Says '5A'
Club Exists
At Michigan.
Erikson Charge
Refuted by 'U
The United Press quoted the
president of the Spartan Foun-
dation yesterday as saying other
Big Ten schools had similar groups
which subsidized athletes, among
them the "5-A Club" at Michigan.
Claude Erikson, who heads the
aid-for-athletes group which cost
Michigan State a year's probation
in the Big Ten Conference, re-
portedly said "Iowa has its I'
Club, Wisconsin its Mendona Club,
Indiana its Frontliners Club and
Michigan its 5-A Club."
However, when pressed in an in-
terview with The Daily, Erikson
stated: "I heard of the 5-A Club
at Michigan about 4 or 5 years
ago. I know only that it was in-
terested in sports. I'm not sure .of
anything else."
*. * *
"I'M NOT MAKING any accu-
sations," Erikson continuec. "But
I've heard of these other ,.clubs.
The 5-A. was supposed to send
an athlete a year to Michigan."
Erikson admitted in the interview
he wasn't sure whether the Club
operates at present. !
Existence of a 5-A club which
regulates high school football
games between Ann Arbor, Lan-
sing and Battle Creek was con-
firmed last night by Nicholas
Schreiber, Ann Arbor High
School principal. However,
Schreiber said the group has. no
connection with the University.
University officials last night
denied any knowledge of the
"club" or any group here which
was violating Big Ten Conference

JAPANESE SCENARIO-"So Sorry!" a scenario for the Union
Opera written in Japanese, sent Opera officials seeking a trans-
lator yesterday.
Japanese Scri*-pt Causes
Opera Contest Concern
Union Opera officials called it only a joke when the scenario
for "So Sorry!" a Union Opera in Japanese, was handed to the script
committee yesterday.
"So Sorry!" brainchild of Shigeo Imamura, Spec., caused more
than one set of raised eyebrows in the Opera's Walnut-paneled offices
as the cry went up for translators to reduce the thing to "good down
to earth English."

COMMENTED Mimes President John Daugherty, '53, "The whole
thing must be a horrible joke."

Urged -in Talk.
Speaking before approximately
100 persons attending the annual
Brotherhood Banquet, Rev. Frank-
lin H. Littell, former director of
Lane Hall pointed out the signifi-
cance of inter-faith relations
Mr. Littell, who is now the Dean
of the Chapel at Boston University,
called Lane Hall "the social psy-
chology workshop of campus,
where students learn to apply
what they have been taught in the
realm of inter-faith, and inter-
cultural relations."
Having recently returned from
Germany where he worked as a
liason between the church and the
military, Mr. Littell said that in
America, minority groups are not
only tolerated, but that they are
able to make contributions to our
every-day life.

Meanwhile, last year's Gener-
al Secretary of the Opera, Mike
Scherer, '5,4, announced that the
deadline for script contest en-
tries is March 16.
"Scenarios should include a
complete outline of the show, in-
cluding musical numbers and sev-
eral pages of sample dialogue,"
Scherer said.
Entries may be turned in at the
main desk of the Union addressed
to he Michigan Union Opera, in
cart of Mike Scherer. Details and
entry blanks may be obtained by

Earlier, Michigan State's Dean
Lloyd Emmons released the names
of the Spartan 1951 team who
were the recipients of the under
cover financial support the Spar-
tan Foundation gave athletes.
The 1951 stars named were:
Don Coleman, All-American tackle
from Flint; Al Dorow, quarter
back; linemen, Jim Creamer,
Frank Kapral, Dean Garner, Wil-

and Louis Smith.
The total given to these ath-

THE SPARTAN Foundation,
which was dissolved in December
at the request of MSC president
John A. Hannah, was composed
of alumni and other supporters of
MSC. According to Erikson the
foundation helped needy students
in the form of loans and did not
place special emphasis on athletes.
However, Dean Emmons said.
that while the Foundation classi-
fied the money as loans, there is
no record of any ,repayment ever
being made. He termed the money
"gifts" not loans.
The probation meted out by
the Big Ten means that Michi-
