Ike Requests
Proof of Red
Peace Policy
Pravda Denies
Russia at Fault
By the Associated Press
President Eisenhower yesterday
challenged Soviet Russia's new
regime to prove its peace overtures
are sincere by agreeing to global
disarmament and by taking con-
crete steps to ease the tensions
that threaten World War III.
"The first great step along this
way must be the conclusion of an
honorable armistice in Korea," the
President said in a speech widely
heralded as America's answer to
the Soviet peace offensive.
* * *
ONCE THE PATH of peace has
been clearly charted, once the
fears of East-West strife have
abated, Eisenhower proposed set-
ting up a multi-billion dollar fund
from the savings of disarmament
to wage a "new kind of war"-
an all-out global war against "the
brute forces of poverty and need."
In answer, Pravda declared
yesterday that President Eisen-
hower failed in his peace pro-
gram to prove with facts that
Russian policy is to blame for
present world tension.
The Communist party newspaper
ran a 300-word story on Eisen-
hower's speech to the American
Society of Newspaper Editors in
Washington yesterday.
Pravda's story, attributed to
the Soviet news agency Tass,
said Eisenhower had "completely
by-passed" the "question of
China and the restoration of
her national rights, as well as
such a question as the restora-
tion of German unity in accord-
ance with the Potsdam agree-
In the United States, some 400
of the nation's leading editors vol-
leyed applause as Eisenhower ad-
dressed the American Society of
Newspaper Editors in his first full-
dress 3peech on foreign policy

Arts Theater
Will Present
'On The Way'
A psychological drama which
touches upon several aspects of
society will open at 8:30 p.m. to-
day at the Arts Theater and con-
tinue through May 3.
The Arts Theater's final spring
production, the drama is the first
American presentation of "On the
Way" by Helge Krog.
* * *
THE NORWEGIAN playwright,
who was awarded a state grant in
1950, has created a "play more of
ideas than of action," according
to Strowan Robertson, director of
the play. "There is a lot of very
interesting and exciting conversa-
tion," Robertson remarked.
Krog, who has been described'
as a "great feminist" inasmuch as
the woman in his plays usually
comes off triumphantly, has as his
central character a woman doctor,
Cecilia Darre, played by Beth-
Sheva Laiken.

The other characters involved
are her father, Kristian Darre,
Gerald Richards; her mother,
May, acted by Bette Ellis, Grad.;
Briger, her brother, Conrad Mat-
thaei; Eivind, Stowan Robertson;
Karsten Traine Ken Rosen; and
Benjamin Grong, John Devoe.

Protest walkout Staged
By StudentEmployes
About twenty-five student employes in the West Quad dining'
room walked off their jobs last night in a protest against what they
cited as low pay and poor working conditions.
Abe Morrier, spokesman for the group, said that the protest
walkout is primarily because of the present 80-cents-an-hour wage
being paid to the men. He said that while student dishwashers only
make 80 cents, those non-students employed from outside the dor-
mitory in the same job make $1.35 an hour.
* * * *
THE MEN want an increase to one dollar-an-hour which one
group feels would be "commensurate with student help in other
parts of the University."

'U Officials
At Funds Bill
Budget Request
Cut 85 Per Cent
University officials registered
disappointment yesterday over a
capital outlay's bill filed by the
State Senate Finance Committee
which cuts 85 per cent off the Uni-
versity's budget request.
The Senate bill would provide
the University with $1,320,000 of
the requested $9,930,000. At the
same time the bill calls for out-
lays of $1,370,000 for Michigan
State College.
* * *
THE MOST keenly felt cuts were
those which delay plans for a
Medical Science Building and an
automotive laboratory on the
North Campus. The bill leaves out
$1,185,000 for the medical build-
ing and $950,000 for the auto lab.
Both had figured prominently
in University plans for the com-
ing year. University vice-presi-
dent Marvin L. Niehuss said the
requests for funds were "en-
tirely legitimate."
He emphasized that all the pro-
jects requested were important but
"those two items are especially im-
portant because they involve pro-
grams already i progress. The
fact that they have been over-
looked is of great concern."
. * *
THE BUDGET BILL does auth-
orize $90,000 for the preparation
of plans for a new library on the
site of the present automotive lab-
oratory. Niehuss said it would be
very difficult, however, to go
ahead with these plans until the
new auto building is provided for.
"We shall urge inclusion of
some provisions for the build-
ing itself when the bill is dis-t
cussed by the Senate approp
riations committee and hope1
that the final draft containst
some money for the project,"
he continued.r
Recommended in the Senate
bill are:
1) $600,000 to complete alter-
ations and modernization of the
first floor of the University Hos-
2) $60,000 to begin plans for the
modernization of food and general
service facilities in the Hospital.
3) $470,000 for a stack library
on the North CampusE
4) $100,000 for roads and utilityf
extensions on the North Campust
5) $90,000 for plans for a newI
general library.
The omission of funds for a
medical science building puts aI
crimp in arrangements forA
larger medical school classes.
"The building was important int
our training plans," Niehuss
said, "and we have been asked1
to train more doctors"t
Construction on the stack .li-
brary will begin as soon as de-f
tailed drafts for the building are
The final Legislature bill is not
expected to be passed until the
middle of May, Niehuss said. The
House is required to finish their
bill by May 1 and the Senate by
May 16.

Devine Lauds
Law Training
For Politicians
Washtenaw County's prosecut-
ing attorney, Prof. Edmond F. De-
Vine, of the Law School, told Mich-
igan Crib members how to pre-
pare for a career in law and poli-
tics yesterday.
Prof. DeVine said that anyone
who plans to enter politics should
definitely have a background ca-
reer in law.
* * *
"THE SKY is the limit, and any
man who wants to spend time
doing public work can gain some
kind of- job in politics," he said.
Prof. DeVine added one caution:
"Identify yourself with one party."
Prof. DeVine noted that in a
small community, it is surprising
how many young men turn up as
prosecuting attorneys.
The main object is to get the
new candidate's name and record
before the public, he pointed out.
This costs a considerable sum in
the way of paid advertising such
as radio time, posters, pamphlets
and newspaper space.
"It is surprising, though, how
many people are interested in see-
ing a good candidate win," Prof.
DeVine added.

Other reasons cited for the
walk-out were an inadequate
staff, a system of grading the
men on their work and putting
the grade on their University re-
cord and having "to double work
to make up for those who have

that he was surprised the men

niques in Teaching Are Used" will

quad election rules in the spring
all-campus elections voiced con-

Role in Society'
Cited by Aiken
"The university is both a model
and paragon of society and a re-
flector of peoples' opinions, atti-
tudes, and desires," visiting Prof.
Henry D. Aiken of the philosophy
department told the Students for
Democratic Action last night.
Speaking on the subject "The
Role of the University in a Free
Society," Prof. Aiken declared that
"people get the kind of educa-
tion they deserve, because the uni-
versity is influenced by social and
political ideas and morals." Thus,
the university is a "mirror" of the
society, and can be academically
free only if it exists in a free so-
The visiting philosopher from
Harvard University further re-
marked that "by infringing upon
the scholar's right to secure
knowledge in whatever way he
choses, you are encroaching
upon everyone's rights."
Strongly emphasizing the need
for uncontrolled thought, Prof.
Aiken said that a man should
speak when asked to give his po-
litical opinions, and not invoke
the Fifth Amendment in fear.
However, the speaker quickly
followed by saying that although
a person shouldn't seek protec-
tion for his views by hiding be-
hind the constitution, his right
to do so must be protected.
Judge Clark
To GiveTalky
Charles E. Clark, judge of the
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sec-
nd Circuit, will discuss "The Il-
imitable Freedom of the Human
Mind" today at a dinner high-
ighting the Law School's Found-
r's Day ceremonies.
Judge Clark, former dean of the

senior class treasurer, Al Strauss,
Grad., SL candidate, and Bob
Perry, '53, Union vice-president
HICKS, WHO lives in East Quad,
admitted to members of the East
Quad Council that he had put
campaign literature in the wash-
rooms of several of the houses.
Commenting on the establish-
ment -of the judiciary, Hicks
said that he "doesn't think that
it's completely legal." He said
this was because "the IHC it-
self isn't recognized officially
by the men in the quad" and any
body set up by the IHC would
be an extra-legal one.
However, Hicks thought that in
choosing a judiciary divorced from
the quad councils, the IHC was
being very fair.

PERRY, ALSO an East Quad
resident, was accused of slipping
campaign literature under quad
room doors. He had been charged
with the same violation last fall.
He felt that "the ethics in-
volved in this issue should be
left for the dorm residents to

gusted at the time wasted by the
IHC with this foolishness."
Perry went on to say that he
is not bothered by IHC's drawn-
out attempt to bring action against
him since Men's Judiciary has pre-
viously pointed out that he is not
legally bound by their rule.
Strauss, who does notlive in the
quads, was accused of "door to
door soliciting." He said that he
was in favor of setting up a judi-
ciary as it would give him a chance
to clear himself of the charges
against him.

Speaking on "Some Political
Aspects of Public Administration,"
Prof. Sayre pointed out that poli-

ought to be greatly related in a

"For some time," Prof. Sayre ex-

ministration had nothing to do
with politics." This theory no long-
er holds true, Prof. Sayre said.
Discussing the connection be-

tween party and administrative
hierarchies, Prof. Sayre said that
the relationship is a "system of
accommodation between two very
different types of organization."
