Ike Doubts Soviet
Says Russian Regime Has Shown
No Immediate Change In Attitude
WASHINGTON-MA)-President Eisenhower raised a question
yesterday about the sincerity of Soviet peace talk and said that no
overtures have reached him through proper channels.
Kremlin expressions of an intention to seek peaceful settlement
of cold war issues, now that the Russian regime has changed, the
President said, are just as welcome as they are sincere. To that com-
ment at the opening of his fourth presidential news conference, Eisen-
hower quickly added that there is a direct relationship between our
attitude and the Soviet sincerity.

THE RUSSIANS will never be met less than half way, Eisenhower
said, because this administration's purpose will always be to seek

On Rent Hike
By BOB JAFFE
The proposed residence hall rent
hike will come up for final approv-
al of the Board of Regents at its
Reliable sources indicated that
the amount of the increase is close
THE RAISE was first predicted
by Francis C. Shiel, Business Man-
ager of Service Enterprises, at an
Inter-House Council meeting last
The Board of Governors of the
residence halls approved the
hike at their meeting last week.
The Board's action must get
final approval of the Regents be-
fore being put into effect.
The rent raise is said to be due
to anticipated increases in labor
costs and a difficulty in meeting
last semester's bond interest pay-
ments on the residence halls. Oth-
er reasons advanced for the in-
crease were an anticipated rise in
cost of food and a 1951-52 budget

Costs Can Be Reduced
Hit by Fire,
500 to 1,000 persons were reported
yesterday to have perished in a
violent earthquake and fires which
laid waste a rich farming and
mining region northwest of Bali-
kesir in Western Turkey.
The Interior Ministry announc-
ed last night that 300 were listed
1 dead and more bodies were being
dragged from fire-blackened ruins
in the village of Yenice alone.

WITH OFFICIAL reports still
lacking from Cihan, another hard
hit village, two Istanbul news-
papers, Hergun and Yeni Gazette,
put the death toll at 1,000.
Earlier, Red Crescent, the Turk-
ish Red Cross, had estimated the
dead at 500 on the basis of incom-
plete and unconfirmed reports.
Police at Balikesir, 110 miles
southwest of Istanbul, the pro-
vincial capital of the area, listed
38 confirmed dead at two other
towns, Gonen and Manyas.
The shock late Wednesday, said
by the newspapers to have been
the strongest felt in Istanbul in
80 years, caused buildings here to
sway and damaged the city's main
water line. But no other damage
was reported. The pipeline break

As for taking steps in the Unit-
ed Nations to brand Russia a sup-
porter of aggression in Korea, as
proposed by Sen. Knowland (R-
Calif.), President Eisenhower said
he never would tolerate any in-
fringement on American rights but
neither would he want to do any-
thing unnecessarily provocative at

dent added, he considers it war

action, as former President Tru-
man described it.
The President deprecated any
investigation of communism in
churches, spoke out again in favor
of bringing a balanced budget into
view before taxes are cut, and de-
fended his choice of Charles E.
Bohlen as ambassador to Moscow.
