British Sign
Sudan Pact
Talks on Suez
Zone Expected
CAIRO, Egypt-(IP)-Egypt and
Britain formally agreed yesterdayI
to let the Sudanese choose their
own future and Premier Gen. Mo-
hammed Naguib announced the
door was opened wide for "a suc-
cessful understanding" on the
withdrawal of British troops from
the Suez Canal zone.
Talks on Suez are coming very
soon, Naguib said.

THE FINAL settlement of these
two key problems in British-Egyp-
tian relations could clear the way
toward tighter co-operation be-
tween this strategic Moslem na-
tion and the Western Powers in
the cold war, perhaps in a Middle
East defense command.
There was exultation in the
foreign offices of Cairo, London
and Washington. And a public
holiday was called today in the
Sudan, a land of desert, for-
ests and cotton fields that
stretches from Central Africa to
the Red Sea.
A ceremonial parade of celebra-
tion is to be held before Gov. Gen.
Sir Robert Howe tomorrow in
Khartoum, the capital.

FOREIGN Secretary Anthopy
Eden, in announcing the Sudan-
ese accord in Britain's House of
Commons, said it was a reason-
able settlement of this question
which has long bedeviled our re-
lations with Egypt."
Press Officer Michael J. McDer-
mott of the U. S. State Depart-
ment said in Washington the Unit-
ed States is highly gratified.
Naguib, the strong man who
seized control of Egypt's govern-
ment seven months ago, and Am-
bassador Sir Ralph Stevenson, a
British career diplomat, took up
together last week the issues that
have been a source of bickering
and occasional bloodshed for
They quickly signed a compro-
mise agreement to substitute
home rule for the sovereignty the
two nations have shared for 54
years over the Sudan and to give
the eight million people of that
territory on the Upper Nile the
right to choose independence, un-
ion with Egypt or a partnership in
the British Commonwealth be-
fore the end of 1955.

THE AGREEMENT provides for
these three main stages:]
1. Country-wide elections are to<
be held within the next two monthst
for a Sudanese parliament. These
elections will be supervised by anr
international commission made up1
of an Indian, an American, a Brit-t

2. A Sudanese government will
be formed, and under international
supervision, will prepare for the
assumption of full power.
3. Within three years, the Suda-
nese people will make their fate-
ful choice of independence or an

State Legisi

IT WAS Bromfield's depiction of
the college professor and his sur-
roundings which drew the most
comment, however.
The professor "is the victim of
a folklore which portrays him as
an absent-minded dolt potter-
ing around in frowzy old clothes
and ignoring the really valuable
things of life, such as football,"
according to Bromfield.
"On the contrary," said Prof.
Boulding, "a professor is well in-
tegrated into the community in
many ways." This is evidenced by
the number of college educators
who take an active part in poli-
tics, religion and social activities
in their communities."
"No one takes the caricature of
a typical professor seriously," Dean
of Students Erich A. Walter noted.
"It's seen as a comic portrayal and
nothing else."

BROMFIELD stated that as a
result of the American professor
being shut away from the com-
munity in which he lives, he has
the feeling of being looked down
upon and thus may become the
earliest victim of doctrines such
as Marxian Socialism or commu-
"I don't believe that is the case
at all," said Prof. Howard Mc-
Clusky of the psychology depart-
ment. "In fact, in"'surveys taken
by sociologists to find which per-
sons are held in highest esteem by
the general public, professors
ranked second only to doctors."
"As for the contention that this
'withdrawn' feeling breeds ex-
tremist views," said Prof. Bould-
ing, "I can say that most of my
colleagues are not only not radi-
cals, but at times painfully re-

Lifts More
Price Lids
Expect Further'
Decontrols Soon
ernment yesterday scrapped fed-
eral price controls over thousands
of items including eggs, poultry,
soaps, gasoline, crude oil, news-
print and all rubber products.
The order, effective immediate-
ly, marks the Eisenhower admin-
istration's second big move within
a week toward restoring the na-
tion to a free-market economy,
biliter Joseph Freehill announced
that dismissal notices will be
handed out Monday to about 2,000
employes of the Office of Price
Stabilization, effective March 15.
Freehill said another package
of decontrol orders may be ex-
pected within a few days.
With yesterday's order, only
about 17 per cent of the items go-
ing to make up the cost of living
will remain under full control.
Freehill said the items newly
freed from curbs account for about
15 per cent of the government's
wholesale price index.
* * *
MAJOR ITEMS still remaining
under control include milk and
dairy products such as butter and
cheese; dry groceries, cigarettes,
major metals including copper,
aluminum, steel and nickel; lum-
ber, industrial machinery, farm
equipment, and major household
appliances such as refrigerators,
home freezers and stoves.
OPS officials predicted some
price hikes will result from yes-
terday's order, notably on gaso-
line, crude oil and tires and
tubes. They said prices on other
items will probably not be af-
fected since many of them are
already selling below ceiling lids.
The agency had previously indi-
cated that price curbs would be
lifted from milk, but a last-minute
decision kept it under control for
the time being.
President Eisenhower so far has
not asked for standby emergency
power to reimpose controls, for
use in the event of any sudden in-1
flationary trend.
Reid Elected

Republicans held last night Jasper
Reid, Grad., was elected to serve

Dulles Asks
Quick Unity
For Europe
of State John Foster Dulles said
last night Western European na-
tions must move promptly toward
unity or risk peril beyond Ameri-
can power to save them.
In a radio-TV report to the
American people on his recent
survey trip to the continent Dulles
expressed hope that the next few
weeks will bring "concrete evi-
dence" of progress toward ap-
proving the six-nation European
Defense Community Treaty.
* * *
FAILURE to unite, Dulles said
in his prepared text, "has so
weakened the Western European
countries that today no one of!
them could offer strong resistance
to the Red Army."
"Nothing that the United
States can do will ever be
enough to make Europe safe if
it is divided into rival national
camps," he said.
His 10-day .survey trip, Dulles
said, convinced him that the trea-
ty has a "good chance" to come
into being even though many hur-
dles remain.
o .: * *
"WE BELIEVE that there is a
will to proceed," he said.
Dulles did not go so far as he
has done previously in hinting
that American aid to Europe
might be curtailed if unity efforts
continue to lag.
He had cautioned earlier that
unless the European Allies act
soon, the United States might
have to review its whole program
of aid, which comes up soon for
renewal in the Republican-dom-
inated Congress.
Describing the proposed Euro-
pean military pool as the core of
the North Atlantic Alliance, Dulles
declared that without this com-
bination of military and economicj
strength, "the whole NATO or-
ganization has a fatal weakness."

MSC Rouses Controversy,
Limits 'M' Ticket Allotment
A disagreement over ticket distribution for tomorrow's big swim-
ming meet between Michigan and Michigan State has added a flaming
hue to the already colorful setting at the Jenison Fieldhouse Pool in
East Lansing.
Michigan's veteran coach Matt Mann was disturbed yesterday aft-
er receiving a meager three tickets as his school's allotment for the
natatorial festivities. It has been customary, whenever the Wolverines
journeyed to the Sparan campus, to receive thirty tickets to accom-
modate family and friends of the Michigan performers.

Accept Bid
of Hatcher
New Clinic To Be
Inspected Here
Tuesday,for the first time in 25
years, the entire Michigan State
Legislature will visit the Universi-
ty campus.
This was made public yester-
day following a communication by
the Legislature to Arthur L. Bran-
don, Director of University Rela-
tions, giving final approval of the
Doubt had been raised earlier
by many legislators as to whether
they could make the visit because
of scattered primaries throughout
the state Monday.
UNIVERSITY President Harlan
H. Hatcher extended the invita-
tion to the Legislature in January.
In his message he cited the fact
that the Legislature, as a group,
had not visited the University for
25 years although some individu-
als and committees had done so.
He also pointed out that.many
of the legislator. had not seen
the new Outpatent Clinic, re-
cently hailed by State Building
Director Adrian N. Panguts as
one of thestate's best invest-
ments, or the addition to Angell
Hall, both of which were made
possible by Legislative appropri-
Over 100 of the 132 members of
the Legislature are expected to at-
tend. About 80 will arrive via Uni-
versity buses from Lansing while
the others are expected to drive to
Ann Arbor from their communi-
TENTATIVE plans call for the
members to begin assembling
around 11 a.m. at the Union with
a luncheon scheduled for 12:15
p.m. President Hatcher will ad-
dress the members following the
luncheon and they will then be
taken on a tour of the Clinic and
the Angell Hall addition.
Students are expected to be
represented at the luncheon by
three or four members of lead-
ing student organizations.
President Hatcher's invitations
were sent to Lt. Governor Clar-
ence A. Reid, President of the Sn-
ate, and Wade Van Valkenburg,
Speaker of the House. Early ac-
ceptance was given by both houses
but the final approval of the date
held up University plans.
Predict Red
Bloc To Break
With Israel
TEL AVIV, Israel-(P)-Israelis
close to the foreign office assumed
yesterday that all Communist bloc
countries in Eastein Europe, with
the possible exception of Bulgaria, -
will quickly follow Moscow's lead
in breaking diplomatic relations
with this infant Middle East na-
Western diplomats speculated
that the rupture was part -of a
growing two-year campaign of So-
viet hostility in an effort to win
Arab friendship.

THERE WERE hints from Mos-
cow that it was part of a buildup
for an internal campaign against
"Zionists" that may come to a
head soon in a trial of nine doc-
tors accused of killing two Soviet
leaders and plotting to do away
with many others.
Officially, Moscow gave as a rea-
son for the break the bombing of

Annual Confab
For Lawyers
To Be Held
"It's interesting to see that law-
yers, often thought by the public
to know everything, are ready to
take two days out of busy sched-
ules to improve themselves," ob-
served Prof. Charles W. Joiner
of the Law School.

annual Institute on Advocacy,
which will be attended today and

torneys meeting in Aackham Aud-

gret that the Michigan State tick-
et office had turned down the
Michigan mentor's request for
additional space. McCaffree said
that there was room for only 1,000
people in the Jenison pool, and
that of the 120 reserved seats, 60
go to Spartan swimmers.
The question arises as to the
disposal of the other 60 reserved
seats. The Spartan coach said
that these had been sold for
weeks. Mann fumed, "Nobody
has ever been denied admission
under similiar circumstances at
our pool!"
The Wolverine coach was not
unmindful of the seating prob-
lems imposed by the great demand
and limited facilities at the Jen-
ison Fieldhouse natatorium. He
insisted however that space should
be reserved for the visiting team.

SL Beset by Conflict Between Two Functions

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the sec-
ond in a series of articies examining
student government on this campus.)
An underlying conflict between
the function of expressing student
opinion through policy measures
and the duty of providing service
projects to the campus has beset

lemma in the following way:
"The difficulty is this-that
the Student Legislature is being
judged by the same criteria as
other campus organizations,
that is, by the nature, extent
and efficiency of the programs
of the organization.


mandated to fulfill four specific
The first of these is the rather
nebulous charge "to express stu-
dent opinion." Through this
power the Legislature has sub-
mitted a number of resolutions
and suggestions to appropriate
University officials and bodies.

Generally speaking, the Legisla-
ture has been of the opinion that
no sector of the University com-
munity is barred to its investiga-
tion and recommendations in is-
sues of campus concern.
On this interpretation have
arisen such conflicts as the In-
terfraternity Council protest
