Indian POWPlan
U.S. Approves of Plan Basically,
But May Insist on Certain Changes
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y.-(W)-Britain yesterday threw its sup-
port to an Indian plan designed to solve the prisoner of war issue in
The United States also believes the plan is basically satisfactory,
informed sources said, but may insist upon certain changes.
BRITAIN MADE KNOWN her approval-with some questions-
when Anthony Eden, foreign secretary, spoke soon after he conferred
with President-elect Eisenhower.

Dulles, W



to Cabinet

Both the United States and
French delegations were re-
ported to agree with Eden's
stand, but officially the U.S. del-
egation merely called the Brit-
ish declaration "constructive."
Russian bloc sources said it
was "too early" to react.
Eden spoke for 12 minutes to
the U.N. Political Committee. He
brought into the open Britain's
position which had been stated in
several meetings of a subcommit-
tee of Western delegations study-
ing Korean resolutions. He did not
refer to or comment on the talk
with Eisenhower.
There had been reports that the
United States had insisted in pri-
vate talks with Western delega-
tions on having the Indian resolu-
tion spell out in detail provisions
for repatriation of prisoners of
war and eventual disposition of
those still in camps 90 days after
an armistice.
Apparently these difficulties
were solved. for, after Eden's
speech, informed sources said the
U.S. position was almost identical
with that of Britain.
EDEN, speaking slowly and with
great emphasis, said the Indian
resolution, presented by V. K.
Krishna Menon, should not be
viewed too legalistically.
"This resolution Is, in my
view, a timely and constructive
attempt to resolve this dead.

PanelA ffirms U.S. Foreign Policy

The United States will not have
trouble with "allies who fade away
into thin air," according to mem-
bers of the "World News Council,"
who aired their views in a panel
discussion presented in Hill Audi-
torium last night.
Melchior Aquino, representing
the Far East, predicted that a shift
in emphasis towards alliances with
younger, stronger nations, would
tend to eliminate this problem.

Votes Braun
Back to PostI
The Michigan House Council
voted late last night to reappoint
Bert Braun, '54, to his seat on the
West Quad Council.
The motion, which maintained
that Braun was and would con-
tinue to be one of the two Michi-
gan House representatives to the
Quad council, was passed unani-
mously after a lengthy discussion.
THE MOVE to reinstate Braun
resulted from the West Quad
Council's Tuesday night decision
to remove him from his post. Pass-
ed by an 11-3 vote, the motion
would automatically havemcost
Braun his seat on the Inter-House
Council as well.
Michigan House president Jim
Friedman, '54, said the House
Council and many men in the
house were united in feeling the
Quad Council did not have the
legal right to remove a represen-
tative from its ranks.
He expressed the opinion that
individual houses were not subor-
dinate to the Quad Council and
could choose their representatives
in any way they saw fit.
Braun said the House Council's
decision would be presented to the
West Quad Council Tuesday night.
He plans to ask for a hearing be-
fore the IHC, which will meet di-
rectly after the Council, if he is
turned down.

commenting that in the past,
there has been a strong enmity
between Turkey and Russia.
Camille Chautemps, the
French representative, cited the
French contribution in attempt-
ing to stave off Communist ag-
gression in Indo-China.
The UN, Chautemps said, was
particularly important in keeping
peace, especially since "as long as
you're talking, you're not fight-
THE MEMBERS of the panel
were agreed that if Russia leaves
the UN, a third world war will not
be far off.
On the subject of communists
representing the United States
in the UN, Aquino, who is a
member of the Philippine dele-
gation, said that this was not
the case with any of our dele-
gates. However, he claimed that
supposedly American members
of the secretariat do have com-
munist affiliations.
"If I were Secretary-General,"
he said, "I would have booted them
out long ago."

A CONFLICT arose, during the
audience questioning period, over
the French position in Tunesia
and Morroco.
While Chautemps justified the
French policy on the grounds
that the colonization had been
beneficial and not tyrannical,
the delegates from Turkey and
the Philippines took a dim view
of any extended colonization.
Commenting on the results of
the recent election, Dosdogru re-
markedt on General Eisenhower's
popularity in the Middle East.
He predicted little change in
policy, especially with regard to
the tariff policy, the all-import-
ant question in foreign trade.

TWO Disputes Come Up
Over Campus Elections
Only two incidents marred the otherwise uneventful voting in the
record-breaking all-campus election which ended in the early hours
yesterday morning when the last ballot was redistributed.
But this final ballot has caused a controversy which may result in a
recount between the last two candidates left in the race.
AT 1:35 A.M. yesterday only two men remained in the Student
Legislature count, Ron Mauer, '55, and Joe Schwartz, '56. Another
candidate had just folded and his ballots were redistributed with the

Study Finds U.S. Schools Need Funds

-Results .of a nation-wide three-
year study of higher education in-
stigated by the Association of
American Universities indicate
that United States schools must
have more money.
University administrators would
go along with this conclusion.
However they do not object as
strongly as the survey group, the
Commission on Financing Higher
Education, to increased federal
government support which was re-
ported to be threatening educa-
tional independence.

"There is always a danger when
you receive federal support that
you might also get something
you don't want." he said.
As for the survey's conclusion
that universities were in "serious
financial trouble," President
Hatcher said that all institutions
were faced with the serious prob-
lem of recovering from the strain
of the post-war veteran bulge and
of meeting increased living costs.
But he indicated that federal
support tends to bring disparity
between national and state insti-

gaard of the literary college
pointed out that the Northwest
Ordinance which gave this Uni-
versity its first impetus was fed-

Generally, however, adminis-
trators saw no immediate threat
to education through federal mon-
etary assistance.
Though President Hatcher fixed
main financial responsibilities with
the state legislature, the admin-
istration is making a strong bid
to strengthen the University fi-
nancially through a recently set

Dulles, Wilson and McKay fol-

The brief announcement was
made by Eisenhower's press sec-
retary, James C. Hagerty, at the
general's Commodore Hotel
headquarters in New York.
The big surprise was the name
of McKay, who had not been re-

the front-runners for the job.
