Dulles Rejects Split
In Global Power
Secretary Says U. S. Negotiating.
Only For Cause Of Human Welfare
NEW YORK-0A)--Secretary of State Dulles, speaking two weeks
before the opening of the Berlin Big Four conference, last night
rejected any deal for a "division of world power" with the Soviet
In a speech prepared for the Council on Foreign Relations, Dulles
said this country is negotiating only "to advance the cause of human
welfare.", He said it will not join any "conspiracy against freedom"
to gain an illusion of security by

City Political
Scene Viewed
(Editor's Note: This is an interpre-
tive article outlining the pre-election
political scene in Ann Abor. All- .
city elections will be held on April
Using the vote turnout in past
city elections as reference, it would
be safe to predict that not more
than 35 per cent of Ann Arbor's
registered voters will go to the
polys in the municipal elections
this spring.
Civic minded persons, attempt-
atpng to analyze the political situa-
tion in the city feel that local cit-
izens are "almost totally uncon-
scious about city elections." Fig-
ures show that between eight and
nine thousand Democrats are reg-
istered in the city, and nearly 16,-
000 Republicans are on record.
Less than 9,000 votes were cast in
last spring's election.
ANN ARBOR is divided into sev-
en wards with two councilmen
# elected from each ward. A sugges-
tion made to the members of the
city Charter Revision Commission
by Council President George Sal-
lade last night, that wards be re-
districted, appeared warranted. A
current discrepancy in the division
of the city into wards is pointed
up in Ward 5 which has 1,000 vot-
ers, compared to Ward 7 with more
than 6,000 voters.
A closer look at the polities of
the city reveals not only that
there is apparent apathy on the
voting scene, but one party, Re-
publican, has dominated the
membership of the City Council,
Board of Supervisors and the
mayorship for as long as most .
voters can remember.
The ability of local Republicans
- to repeatedly drum up enough
votes to dominate positions in
city government has been the
starting point for local Democrats
ANALYSTS have observed year
after year the failure of the Demme
ocrats to carry more than one or
two wards has been due to apathy
in campaigning.
Actually Democrats -and Re-
publicans differ little on issues
facing a city government in a
town of this size. Persons criti-
cizing the division into two sides
on issues of housing, parks, and
general city improvements, have
noted little difference in the
platforms of the two parties.
Stirring up issues around elec-
tion time has been the practice of
both parties in an attempt to gain
interest in city problems and elec-

who suppress freedom."
* * *
MANY DIPLOMATS believe the
major aim. of Soviet diplomacy
now is to win acceptance by the
Western powers of a vast Com-
munist sphere in eastern Europe
and other areas.
In his address Dulles also:
1. Reported the Eisenhower
Administration has made a basic
decision to rely upon "massive
retaliatory power" for security
of the United States and the
free world.
2. Said the Administration's pol-
icy will provide more real security
at less cost but will not guarantee
against all future Communist suc-
cesses. There may well be set-
backs, Dulles said, but the import-
ant thing is to make them tem-
porary and "local."
* * *
3. ISSUED ANOTHER call for
European nations to set up the
European Defense Community,'
under which French, German and
other soldiers would form a unit-
ed army. Dulles said Communist
agents already are looking for
ways to fan distrust between
France and Germany into an in-
ternational fire. Without EDC, he
said, European security and fu-
ture peace are in jeopardy.
4. Found hope for eventually
resolving Western troubles with
Russia by persisting in policies
that promote human freedom,
because "there are limits to the
power of any rulers indefinitely
to suppress the human spirit."
Dulles devoted part of his talk
to the policy of depending on
"massive retaliatory power" for
defense of the free world.
Judge Jails
DETROIT-(P)--Federal Judge
Frank A. Picard yesterday imposed
a 30-day contempt sentence on
Philip Schatz, one of six Michi-
gan Communists being tried on
charges of violating the Smith Act.
All are accused of advocating
and teaching the violent overthrow
of the government.
Schatz had refused to answer a
question on the Communist ties
of a former associate. He began
serving the term in the Wayne
county jail. He will be released
under custody to appear as a de-
fendant while the trial continues.
Government counsel put the
question to Schatz yesterday. He
was asked whether Ann Beiswing-
er, executive director of the Michi-
gan school of social sciences be-
tween 1948 and 1950, was an offi-
cial of the Communist party.
Judge Picard gave Schatz until
yesterday to answer. After Schatz
again refused, the judge explain-
ed to the jury:
"In this day and age, we don't
have a rack to make him answer.
Our only remedytis to find him
guilty of contempt."

Peace Talks
To Resume
Perfidy Charge
Not Withdrawn
SEOUL - (P)-- U.S. and Com-
munist aides today will attempt
to revive the preliminary Korean
peace talks, which blew up in an
explosion of angry words a month
The U.N. Command agreed yes-
terday to a Communist suggestion
that liaison secretaries meet at
Panmunjom. But the Reds said
nothing about taking back a
charge of "perfidy" leveled at the
United States.
The U.N. representative was
instructed to take up the "perf-
idy" matter, but there were in-
dications the U.S. attitude had
softened and a compromise was
possible.When the U.S. envoy,
Arthur Dean, walked out on
the talks Dec. 12 he said he
would not return- until the
charge was withdrawn.
The liaison officers' task is to
try to work out conditions and a
date for resuming the preliminary
talks, which are designed to ar-
range a time and place for a Ko-
rean peace conference.
* * *
IN WASHINGTON, press officer
Henry Duydam of the State De-
partment declined to comment
when asked if among the U.S. con-
ditions would be a retraction of
the perfidy charge.
While the liaison officers as-
semble, the Neutral Nations Re-
patriation Commission will be
meeting to argue a new and pos-
sibly decisive Indian plan for
disposing ofethe explosive pris-
oner problem.
The commission voted down
Sweden's proposal that the 22,-1
000 prisoners who have refused
to go home be released Jan. 23, as
the U.N. Command demands. Only
Switzerland sided with Sweden..
THEN LT. GEN. K. S. Thimay-
ya, India's chairman of the com-
mission, brought up a secret plan.
However it'probably was the same
as, or close to, the Indian plan
disclosed Monday by a high, au-
thoritative source.
Under this plan the 22,000 Chi-
nese and North Koreans in the
anti-Red camp would be turned
back to the U.N. Command. The
350 in the pro-Red camp, inclu-
ing 21 Americans, would be hand-
ed back to the Communists.

Loss of Progress
'Cited by Hatcher
Governor Presents Balanced Books
After Large Cuts In School Budgets
University President Harlan Hatcher said last night that big
cuts in the University's budget recommended by Gov. G. Mennen
Williams would be a "serious block to immediately needed progress."
Gov. Williams' budget recommendations to the Legislature in-
cluded a slash of $1,569,000 in the University's request for current
expenditures, and complete elimination of a new $977,000 request for
"research and service in the utilization of human resources."

GOV. WILLIAMS also asked the legislators for only $2,500,000
for new construction, improvements of existing facilities and advance
planning at the University. The University had requested $14,337,200
for this purpose.
