Cigarettes Likely
To Go Up a Ceni
WASHINGTON-(A)-The ad
ministration sounded a warning
against price-gouge tactics yes
terday as it prepared to scrap fed
eral price controls over anothe:
big batch of consumer items.
The Office of Price Stabiliza-
tion said an order may come to-
day lifting price curbs on suc
things as cigarettes, drugs, cos-
metics, coal, lumber, cameras an
photographic material, and many
household appliances.

IN ANOTHER development, th
+ steel ipdustry told the Nationa
Prodution Authority that steel i
no longer a "critical material" an
that no production controls will b
needed after mid-year except t
safeguard the military and atomi
programs.
NPA's Steel Advisory Commit-
tee said all military require-
ments for steel are now being
r met. The group said considerably
more steel is available for civil-
ian use than before the Korean
War.
OPS officials predicted pric
hikes on many, items covered i
the new decontrol order expectec
Wednesday, including perhaps a
cent-a-pack boost on cigarette
and a 10 per cent rise in the pric
of cosmetics.
EARLIER IN the day, Presiden
Eisenhower cautioned busines
and industry against price goug
ing and letting prices get out o
hand.
The President told his news con-
ference he will ask Congress fo
authority to reimpose controls i
prices rise too sharply. He saic
he would be disappointed if any
price gouging occurs.
Cornet Player
To Perform
With 'U' Band
Leonard B. Smith, acclaimed
by band leader Edwin Frankc
Goldman as "the greatest cornet
talent I have ever known," will
appear as guest cornet soloist with
the University Symphony Band,
William D. Revelli conducting, at
8:30 p.m. tomorrow in Hill Audi-
torium.
* * .
RECENTLY returned from a
tour in Colorado, California and
Arizona, the band director and
cornetist will solo with the band
in "Belle Isle," one of his own com-
positions; Bellstedt's "La Mandol-
inata"' and Haydn's "Concerto in
E flat for Trumpet."
As a member of' the school
band in Poughkeepsie, New York,
his aptitude for the cornet
brought him to the attention of
Ernest S. Williams, celebrated
New York trumpeter and teach-
er who in turn prepared young
Smith for a professional career
in music.
With the aid of Bandmaster
Arthur Pryor, Smith was engaged
by Edwin Franko Goldman in
1936, as Cornet Soloist of the
Goldman Band, the youngest per-
son ever to hold that position.

In 1937, the musician recog-
nized as "America's Premier Cor-
net Soloist" accepted the post of
first trumpet in the Detroit Sym-
phony.

cert will be free.

Ike Says No
Official Plany
Of Blockade
Talks at First
Press Meeting
WASHINGTON - (P) - Pres-
ident Eisenhower said yesterday he
supposes government departments
are looking into the question of a
naval blockade or embargo of
Communist China, but that he
himself isn't considering it offi-
cially.
Eisenhower also said tax cuts
ought to wait until a balanced
budget is in sight - he doesn't
know when that might be-and
that he will go right back to Con-
gress and ask for more controls if
price gouging starts.
* * *
THOSE WERE three of the eight
items the nPresident tackled in a
32-minute news conference - his
first since moving into the White
House.
While the conference was on,
'it ranged over these additional
topics:
Farm prices - The President
says there's a serious problem here
-inherited from the Truman ad-
ministration-although beef prices
have started back up now. Eisen-
hower intends to stick by cam-
paign promises to carry out the
present price support law that ex-
pires at the end of next year, then
replace it with a new farm pro-
gram.
Atom bomb-The President
says as far as he is.concerned
it's absolutely true that Russia
has exploded atomic weapons
and is building up a supply of
them.
Korea-Eisenhower wouldn't go
so far as to say it is his intention
eventually to replace American
troops with South Koreans. As
long as the United Nations carry
responsibilities in Korea, he said,
he doesn't believe they can remove

Arabs Warn
U.S. Against
IsraeliAid
WASHINGTON (RP) -- Seven
Arab governments told the United
States yesterday that any more
military and economic aid to Is-
rael would fan smouldering fires
in the strategic Middle East.
Russia recently broke off rela-
tions with Israel, and the latter
country promptly urged that the
United States give her moral and
material aid.
* * *
TOP DIPLOMATS representing
the Arab world called in a group
at the State Department to oppose
"any more help of any sort."
"We believe it will amount to
throwing oil on smouldering,
fire," said Egyptian Ambassa-
dor Abdul Rahim, who acted as
spokesman.
The Arab envoys contended that
Israel was "exploiting the break
with Russia to win' big aid allot-
ments from the United States.
"The continuance of any sort of
aid to Israel will certainly be det-
rimental to the interests of the
United States in the Middle East
and will do away with any re-
serve of good will left," Rahim
said.
The Arab protest to Under Sec-
retary of State Walter Bedell
Smith was aimed at blocking ap-
proval -of a series of public appeals
by Israel for assistance.
Reds Held Back
SEOUL - (P) - Eighth Army
-forces tossed back nine small but
fierce Communist thrusts along the
Korean battle front yesterday, us-
ing fiery napalm land mines at
one point to halt the Red attacks.

Jelke Trial
SecrecyKept
NEW YORK-(P)-The State
Supreme Court refused yesterday
to lift the lid of secrecy from Mi-
not (Mickey) Jelke's cafe society
vice trial.

SUPREME COURT Justice Ben-
jamin F. Schreiber said in a nine-
page decision directed to represen-
tatives of the New York press:
"The court has no right or
power on these applications to
decide whether the trial judge
should or should not have ord-
ered the exclusion of the public
and the press from the Jelke
trial."
General Sessions Judge Francis
L. Valente barred press and public

With President,

WASHINGTON - (-) - Adlai
Stevenson swapped campaign rem-
iniscences with President Eisen-
hower over a luncheon of breast
of guinea hen and wild rice at the
White House yesterday.
Arriving at the executive man-
sion, the 1952 Democratic presi-
dential candidate whimsically re-
marked to newsmen:
"These Republicans are treating
me so nicely that I think I'm be-
ginning to like Washington-may-
be too much."
THE FORMER Illinois goverpor
was closeted alone with Eisenhower
for 30 minutes before sitting down
to luncheon with 20 Congress mem-
bers in the big state dining room.
Stevenson said later he was
deeply grateful to the President
for the invitation."
Earlier, Stevenson dropped into
the State Department for a visit
with tecretary of State Dulles.
"We talked over old times-I
started to say quieter times," he
said.

]Lawmakers'
First'U Call
In 3 0 Years.
Visitors Hail Trip
As Informative
By ERIC VETTER
"Goodwill" was the byword yes-
terday as 70 members of the state
Legislature took time out from
their lawmaking to spend half a
day on the University campus.
Regents, top administrators and
faculty members and students
were on hand to greet the legisla-
tors who were visiting the campus
for the first' time in 30 years.
* * *
UNIVERSITY President Harlan
H. Hatcher described the visit as
a "very happy occasion for the
University and one designed to
strengthen the relationship be-
tween the school and the Legis-
lature."
Speaker of the House Wade
Van Valkenburg (R-Kalamazoo)
summed up the legislators view
of the trip as a very pleasant
and instructive visit.
- He marveled at the new Outpa-
tient Clinic and described it as a
building which is performing a
"very valuable'service to the state
and the nation."
Regent J. Joseph Herbert, of
Manistique, greeted the legislators
at a luncheon in the Union "not
as poor relatives of a rich uncle
hoping to be remembered in a
will, but as friends."
He continued by saying that
the Legislature has supported the
University well and stressed that
the University is prouder of its
product than its physical plant.
* * *
PRESIDENT Hatcher, -speaking
at the luncheon, told the legisla-
tors that "Michigan must be
ranked in the first half dozen
Universities in the nation."
Commenting on University
financial needs, he said the task
ahead is "not a discouraging one
but a thrilling one." He thanked -
the legislators for what they
had done for the University and
expressed hopes that the future
would be as profitable as the
past.
The legislators went on a quick
tour of the central campus in the
morning. They stopped at the
Angell Hall Addition and the
.Pharmacology Bldg. and the Auto-
motive Lab to see a comparison
of the latest University facilities
with some of ,the oldest.
Expenses for the Legislature
visit were paid by friends and
alumni of the University. Enter-
tainment at the luncheon was
provided by the Men's Glee Club.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT SURVEY:
Legislature Change Might Be Near

(Editor's Note: This is the sixth
and last in a series of interpretive
articles on University student gov-
ernment.)
By HARRY LUNN
A drastic change in the form of
campus student government might
well be in the offing.
And immediate change, if it
comes at all, seems to point to
only one direction: a plan featur-
ing at least some degree of or-
ganizational representation in the
legislative area.
