Higher Defense
WASHINGTON-The air defense program costing $16 to $20 billion,
that is currently being considered by the President and the Na-
tional Security Council has got to be regarded, unhappily, as only a
The Administration has sought to muffle the issue, but it can now
be revealed on highest authority that the National Security Coun-

Originator of the motion, Fred

passed by the Residence Halls
Board of Governors last week
without student consultation.
HICKS condemned the raise as
"increasing the difficulty of ob-

Asks Delay
In Tax Cuts
WASHINGTON - (A) - Presi-
dent Eisenhower said yesterday
Congress may "reform" taxes but
should withhold any tax cuts un-
til a balanced federal budget is in
At the same time, the president
predicted there will be some "com-
plaint .'. . friction . . . trouble"
now that all government wage-
price controls have been scrapped.
ADDRESSING a group of 150
business leaders, he said:
"We must have the faith and
courage to stand by our guns all
the way through the capital and
in the nation, so, possibily, just
the plain workings of economic
law will re-establish itself as a
sound system for a country such
as ours. !Certainly that is our.
plan and hope."
Eisenhower said he thought he
could be fairly described as "mid-
dle of the road" in his thinking,
and declared he wants to avoid a
one-sided economy w-eighted ei-
ther in the direction of manage-
ment or labor.
"Let's not get too far to one
side or the other," he said.
On the subject of taxes, Eisen-
hower again hit out at any sug-
gestion of reducing taxes until the
government can get away from
red-ink spending.
He emphasized the burden of
some 80 billion dollars in obliga-
tions inherited from past adminis-

CBS Program
To Broadcast
A nation-wide television broad-
cast of a phase of University life
is being planned by the Columbia
Broadcasting System.
The program will be part of a
series involving 21 colleges and
universities. Called "The Search,"
the series is designed to dramatize
higher education's cultural and
scientific contributions to individ-
ual and national welfare.
THE UNIVERSITY'S part in the
series, beginning in September,
will be a program on the English
Language Institute which is set
up to teach foreign students Eng-
lish in eight weeks.
Director of the institute, Prof.
Charles C. Fries, of the English
department, said technical ad-
visors from CBS are expected to
visit the University in about two
weeks to lay out material for
the program.
Arthur L. Brandon, Director of
University Relations, is in New
York to complete formal arrange-
ments for the program. He said
the University is pleased over the
show which will allow millions to
see the campus and the work of
the institute.
He described the world fa~mous.
