The pair scored 26 points be-

Thursday Naguib held both posts.

the Union for three days to inter-
view students interested in joining
either the Naval Cadet or Naval

Issues Call
Entry blanks are now available
at the Union for the 1954 Union
Opera Script Contest, which is
open to all male students and
which is designed to pick scenar-
ios for development and consider-
ation as complete scripts for the
1954 Union Opera.
Mimes President Harry Blum,
'54BAd, has encouraged all those
interested in creative writing and
in testing their ability publicly to
enter a scenario in the contest.
All entries must be turned in at
the main desk of the Union by 6
p.m., March 25. The first judging,
will be completed by April 1, and
contestants will be notified of the
results individually.
The judging committee will con-
sist of four faculty members, the
General Chairman of Union Opera,
ahd Blum, Mimes President.
Scenarios should consist of a
narrative summary of the pros-
pective musical comedy, including
an outline of musical numbers and
production suggestions.
Blum emphasized that, in writ-
ing a scenario, production ar-
rangements, the types of audiences
before which the Opera will ap-
pear, and the fact that it is to be
an all-male musical comedy.should
be taken into consideration.
The writer whose script finally
emerges as the official script of
the 1954 Opera will have a hand
in producing the show, an oppor-
tunity to make an all-expenses-
paid nine-city tour with the Opera,
and valuable experience in show
business, besides the usual campus
and literary honors accompany-
ing his success.

'To Temper
President Offers
Four-Point Plan
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-President Eis-
enhower was reported on high
authority yesterday to have sent
word to his Senate lieutenants
that he wants investigations con-
ducted by Sen. McCarthy (R-
Wis.) manned at all times by
other Republicans as well.
A top administration official is
known to have urged Sens. Mundt
(R-S.D.), Dirksen (R-Ill.) and
Potter (R-Mich.) to drop other
duties and be on hand when Mc-
Carthy questions witnesses in his
continuing Communist-in-govern-
ment inquiries. Along with Mc-
Carthy, those three are the GOP
members of the Senate Investiga-
tions sub-committee.
THE CLEAR implication was
that they should be on hand-as
they often have not been in the
past-to temper proceedings.
This proposed GOP check on
the Wisconsin senator's activi-
ties is an offshoot of an unoffi-
cial four-point program said to
have been outlined by White
House aides-and approved by
Eisenhower-to prevent a repe-
tition of the clash growing out
of charges by Secretary of the
Army Stevens that McCarthy
had "abused" an army officer
This program called for 1) an
end to one-man subcommittee in-
vestigations such as McCarthy has
conducted in the past, 2) limita-
tions on the use of subpoenas,
3) establishment in practice as
well as in theory of the right of
witness to have legal counsel and
4) adequate notice of hearings.
The Wisconsin senator said he
intends to teep right on inves-
tigating, even if it embarrasses his
own party. He contended that he
hasn't mistreated witnesses and
said that in the future they "will
have the same consideration as
in the past."
Meanwhile, Mrs. Annie Lee
Moss, who figured in Sen. McCar-
thy's investigation of what he
calls "Communist coddling" in
the Army, has been suspended by
the Army Signal Corps, her lawyer
Atty. George E. C. Hayes, said
she was notified yesterday that
she had been suspended as of
Thursday, "pending the adjudi-
cation of her case." Pentagon offi-
cials had no comment.
Hayes said Mrs. Moss has testi-
fled to the House Un-American
Activities Committee, and will re-
peat it under oath to McCarthy's
Senate Investigations subcommit-
tee, that she isn't a Communist
and never has been.
YD Talk:Given
By McCarthy
Special to The Daily
at a Young Democrat dinner last
night Rep. Eugene McCarthy of
Minnesota lashed out at the "cru-

sade" of the Republicans and criti-
cized them for trying to picture
themselves as saviors.
"The Republicans are having
difficulties and the country is suf-
fering as a result of certain weak-
nesses existing in the Republican
approach to any problem," he said.

local Democrats including Gov. G.
