By HARRY LUNN
Daily Managing Editor
WITH THE revelation that two University
students have received subpoenas from
Rep. Clardy's sub-committee, the air-tight
secrecy which has surrounded the up-com-
ing May hearings has been partially punc-
tured and it is expected that more infor-
mation will come to light in the next weeks
and days.
Since Rep. Velde first Indicated early
last spring that the University would be
involved in hearings of a sub-group of
the House Un-American Activities Com-
mittee, University officials have been en-
deavoring to establish procedures and
policies in regard to subpoenas and evi-
dence which might be produced at the
hearings. Their objective has been to
insure that anyone Involved would re-
ceive fair treatment, that the internal
situation would not be unsettled by fear
or suspicion and that the University's
responsibility to the state and its citizens
would be recognized.
Admittedly this overall objective can give
rise to contradictory policies or actions, and
the final test of the hearings is yet to come.
In considering the hearings however, it
should be remembered that the Univ.ersity
administration has given long study and
consultation to the problem and decisions
will be made against this background of
knowledge and experience.
It also should be borne in mind that per-
haps six faculty members and possibly only
two students have received a summons to
testify, a very minute percentage of the
faculty and student body. Rep. Clardy con-
tinually has reiterated that he realizes the
University is not overrun with people who
need to be subpoenaed. Although it may be
hard to keep this perspective during the
hearings, there should be no reason why the
established procedures carefully being set
up for both faculty and student cases should
be ignored, and there is no reason to be-
lieve they will be.
A word also might be said about Daily
publishing policy in regard to these cases.
The Daily editors had anticipated that
some faculty members or students might
wish to come forward and say they had
been subpoenaed, and that others might
not. Any name printed here must come
either from the sub-committee or the
person involved, and because the sub-com-
mittee will not release any names, it rests
with the person to make the decision.
Mere rumor or conjecture about an indi-
vidual hardly warrants our using his
hame.
The investigations, however, are extremely
newsworthy for their effect here and their
ramifications on the national scene. Devel
opments arising out of them, such as yes-
terday's news break, are extremely signifi-
cant and will be treated with as much thor-
oughness as possible. At the same time, the'
hysteria which has characterized situations
of this sort at other places will be avoided.

ductor.
Strauss: Till Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks
Debussy: Nocturnes (Nuages, Fetes, Si-
renes)
Beethoven: Symphony No. 6 (Pastorale)

THE SPRING CONCERT of the 'U' Sym-
phony opened with a very satisfying and
enthusiastic performance of Till Eulen-
spiegel. The ensemble was brilliant and
clean, with the winds and brass particularly
stirring. Robert Ricks handled the horn
solo at the beginning expertly, and the other
soloists, including the concertmaster, Jane
Stoltz, and some penetrating E-fiat clarinet
by Rolf Legband, were equally fine. Prof.
Blatt had the players well drilled, and the
result was exciting
In the third of the three Debussy Noc-
turnes the women of the Michigan Sing-
ers were added. They sang beautifully,
capturing the ethereal nuance for which
Debussy prescribed them. Orchestrally
the Nocturnes came off well. Kenneth
Holm played some lovely English Horn
solos throughout the pieces. The balance
between the different orchestral combina-
tions was sensed by Prof. Blatt and care-
fully brought out, thereby insuring the
work's proper impressionistic effect.
There was plenty of seasonal appropriate-
ness to the Beethoven Pastorale Symphony,
but unfortunately the orchestra and con-
ductor didn't feel in the right mood. Be-
cause the Strauss and Debussy both rely
heavily on winds and brass, weakness in
the strings goes unnoticed. Even though
the strings, primarily violas, were consider-
ably bolstered for last night's concert, it
would be dishonest to say the work spoke
fluidly. It was too much like a reading.

TODAY AND TOMORROW:
Is an Armistice Possible?

"How About Sending Them A Flag?"

By WALTER LIPPMANN1
THE FORMATION and even more so the
maintenance of a common diplomatic
front at Geneva depend upon this crucial
question: Can the terms of an armistice in
Indo-China be conceived which the Com-
munist powers might, and that the Western
powers could, accept? The schism within
the Western Alliance can be closed only if
agreement can be reached on a common
principle of negotiation. For without that
a common front will quickly be torn apart
between the advocates of appeasement on
the ,one hand and of unconditional surren-
der on the other.
Thus far no one in a responsible posi-
tion has come forward with so much- as
a hint of acceptable terms. The terms
most frequently suggested, only to be
rejected, are of two types.
One is a territorial partition, presumably"
at the 16th parallel. This was the line
chosen in 1945 to mark the southern limits
of the Nationalist Chinese occupation of In-
do-China. A partition of this kind, sur-
rendering Indo-China north of the 16th
parallel to Ho Chi Minh, would mean a de-
fective abandonment of Tonking, of the
Red River Delta, the capital city of Hanoi,
the port of Haiphong, the railroad to Yun-
nan, and the swallowing of the kingdom of
Laos within the surrounding Communist
sphere of influence.
The second type of negotiated settlement
which is generally discussed is based on the
territorial unity of Viet Nam under a coali-
tion government. Manifestly this would be
even worse than the territorial partition.
For there can be little doubt that the Com-
munists in the coalition would soon domi-
nate the government and would become the
masters of the whole country.
This would seem to leave us with lit-
tle prospect of negotiating and a most un-
pleasant prospect of having to fight an
indecisive war. It has occurred to me to
ask why we should suppose that either
of these two types of "solutions"-either

D RAMA

THE GLASS MENAGERIE, presented by
the Arbor Players.
LAST NIGHT Ann Arbor's second resident
theater group in five years opened its
first season. The Arbor Players have the
enthusiasm which comes with a new pro-
ject, but the production lacks whatever
mysterious element was necessary for Ten-
nessee Williams' rather unimpressive play to
become a hit on Broadway. To begin a
season with a mediocre play is not good
business; to attempt to launch a theater
group with one could prove disastrous.
The success of "The Glass Menagerie"
must depend to some extent on the few
powerful moments of the play itself, but to
a far greater degree on the experience and
ability of the four actors who must over-
come the weaknesses. Unfortunately the
cast of this production rely far too heavily
on whatever merits are possessed by the
play, and do not allow themselves the free-
dom to go beyond the book to the display
of dramatic virtuosity which is called for.
Of the four people who re-create the
roles Jim Bob Stephenson, as the son
Tom, comes closest to some semblance of
theatrical art. He is encumbered with
Williams' "narrator" passages, and con-
sequently never really reaches the char-
acter of the son in the action of the
play. These narrative sequences are de-
livered in a rather matter-of-fact tone
despite Tom's own comments that this is
a sentimental "memory"; it may come off
as a memory, but the narrator is certain-
ly not sentimental. Within the drama it-
self Mr. Stephenson does manage to con-
vince us that he is dissatisfied with the
whole sordid business, and this, I suppose,
is worth something. But-aside from the
humorous exchanges with his mother-'
Tom is really quite an unsympathetic
character.
Laura, the crippled girl who lives in a
world with her miniature glass animals, is
played by Nancy B6rn. Miss Born makes the
unfortunate mistake of living too much in
her make-believe zoo. We only know her
through a set of superficial gestures and a
beautific smile, and the real introverted
personality hidden within is never brought
close enough to the audience to be glimpsed.
Only the intuition of the audience gives
Laura color, and intuition is a sorry substi-
tute for a quality projected by an actor.
Robin Hall, who appears as the mother,
is as nagging and sordid as Amanda should
should be. But Miss Hall has forgotten
that Amanda is a Wingfield, and through
all this middle-class squalor there must
shine vestiges of the dignity and graceful
living that was once hers. In her most
touching scenes-when she appears in
her faded ball gown, for example-Miss
Hall is slightly hilarious, never pathetic.
She is only half what she might have been.
The set is approximately what the care-
ful staging directions of the play ask; there
are some interesting touches, some tradi-

of them a grave defeat-needs to be the
terms of an armistice. Am I crazy or
have we become confused by failing to
realize the radical difference in the world
today between an armistice and a settle-
ment?
We have, for example, an armistice in
Germany, in Austria, in Korea, and at least
de facto in Formosa. But in no one of these
areas is there a settlement and none is now
in sight. In Korea there is an armistice
based on the partition of the country but
there is no present prospect of a settlement
which would unite the country under one
government and lead to the withdrawal of
all foreign troops. Now when we talk about
Indo-China, are we not trying to imagine
that 'which is for the time being impossible
as it is in Korea-namely, a settlement
which left the whole country in the hands
of the native population.
* s s
F WE ARE clear that what we are trying
to think out are the terms of an armis-
tice, does it not follow that what we are
looking for are not the terms on which the
great powers now engaged directly or in-
directly in Indo-China would withdraw? If
we are thinking of an armistice, what we
are looking for are the terms on which the
great powers would agree-without further
fighting-not to withdraw but to stay. That
is the basic agreement of the Korean arm-
istice. It is an agreement to stay not to
withdraw. It is an agreement to stop fight-
ing where the fighting ended, with the
North Koreans and the Red Chinese, the
South Koreans, the Americans and the oth-
er U.N. forces remaining where they are.
The Korean armistice was acceptable
to us because it prevented the conquest
of Korea and has kept out of hostile
hands the near approaches to Japan. It
was acceptable to the Communist powers
because, as "Pravda" has told us, the
United States does not occupy the whole
peninsula and does not have a "bridge~.
head" for an attack on China.
The point Is that neither side trusted the
promises of the other and yet a cease-fire
was agreed upon when each side was able
to hold a physical position which made it
improbable that the cease-fire would be
broken.
There Is, of course, no continuous front
in Indo-China, as there was in Korea, at
which to arrange an armistice. For this
reason the problem is more complicated.
Nevertheless, though there is no clear front
line, the French Union holds the ports and
the big cities near the sea while the Viet
Minh are dominant in the hinterlands and
in the villages.
An armistice agreement which recognized
the continuing presence of the French Un-
ion forces in the cities and ports until there
was a political settlement would be honor-
able and it would not need to mean the sur-
render of the vital interests of the Viet
Namese or of the Western powers. Might it
be acceptable to the Communist powers-'
acceptable in the sense that they would
then advise Ho Chi Minh to sign an arm-
istice and would-as we have done with
President Rhee-use influence and the con-
trol of military supplies to discourage the
outbreak of more violence?
There is no telling now whether and
how such a military standstill might be
acceptable to the Communist powers. But
what "Pravda" has just had to say about
how satisfactory is the position in North
Korea is at least interesting for Indo-
China. It suggests that a negotiabl pro-
position might be worked out which turn-
ed upon the military and economic inter-
ests of China in Tonking and the Red
River region. This area is in some ways
related to China as is North Korea.
Thus long before th French conquest
some seventy years ago, this area was with-
in the historic Chinese sphere of influ-
ence. The river and the railroad are the
nearest and most feasible way that South
China can have access to the sea. It is not
inconceivable, therefore, that the concrete

and specific interests of Red China guar-
antees against the build-up of Western mili-
tary power in that area and an economic
outlet along the river and the railroad
through the port. Such an agreement ought
not to mean during the armistice period and
before a political settlement the withdrawal
of the French Union forces.
These suggestions are, I should say, found-
ed on nothing more than the old journalis-
tic art of putting two and two together and
then wondering out loud whether it might
not turn out that they have made five. But
there is an unsubstantiated rumor which,
though it may be true, is the kind of fic-
tion which is worth paying attention to.
I found it in an article in "The Christian
Science Monitor" by the assistant overseas
news editor, Mr. Gordon Walker.
The substance of the rumor is that the
French may be exploring the idea of of-
fering the Peking government the renewal
of the treaty which France made with Chi-
ang Kai-shek in 1946. This treaty was the
price France had to pay Chiang Kai-shek
to evacuate the three Chinese armies of oc-
cupation which took over northern Indo-
China from the Japanese.
In that treaty China was granted free
port facilities at Haiphong and tax free
transportation on the Yunnan-Haiphong

WASHINGTON-The importance and difficulty of Secretary of
State Dulles' European mission are illustrated by the backstage
diplomatic conversations which occurred in Washington before he left.
" What happened was that when President Eisenhower first
made up his mind to intervene in Indo-China, our Western allies
were immediately contacted and asked for joint cooperation. They
replied in the negative.
This negative word was received by the White House before Sec-
retary Dulles and Admiral Radford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of
Staff, had their important secret session with Congressional leaders
of both parties to sound them out on Indo-China. In fact, French
Ambassador Bonnet conferred with Dulles at 10:30 a.m., just before
Dulles saw the Senators at 2:30 Saturday.
At the latter meeting, Admiral Radford proposed military inter-
vention by the United States alone. He wanted to send four airplane
carriers from the Philippines to the Indo-Chinese coast. The Senators
immediately demanded that the British, French, and our other West-
trn allies cooperate. What the Senators and Congressmen did not
know, and what Secretary Dulles did not tell them, was that the
allies already had been approached and had declined to cooperate.
RICHEST MAN
THE RICHEST MAN in the U.S.A., H. L. Hunt of Texas, recently
received a call from the man who loaned him his first dollar.
Hunt was stopping at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington
when Emory S. Avant, manager of a much more modest hotel,
knocked on his door. At first Hunt didn't answer. He was talk-
ing on the long-distance phone. Finally he came to the door, but
did not open it.
"Who is it?" he asked cautiously.
"Emory Avant of El Dorado, Arkansas," was the reply.
Hunt unlocked the door and let his caller in'
Avant had been publisher of tjie El Dorado Times back in the
days before Hunt drilled his first oil well. Now he is manager of the
Manchester Hotel on 14th and M streets in Washington. Hunt re-
membered him, though he didn't seem too enthusiastic about seeing
him, perhaps because Avant was peeved over the fact that he had
written Hunt in Texas and received in reply merely some literature
on the Bricker Amendment.
"That's not the kind of brush-off to give an old friend," said
Avant. "Do you remember when I used to take you out to the cafe-

WHITE HOUSE strategists are wooing Sen. Stuart Symington, the
able but sometimes politically naive Democratic Senator from
Missouri. They figure they can switch him over to the GOP on some
issues, also fear his effective attacks on military budget reductions
. . . That's one reason Stuart was out on the golf links with Ike the
other day when fellow Senators were trying to get his vote on the
McCarthy committee counsel , . . Ike's brother Milton, president of
Penn State, has been having trouble with the 'Daughters of the Am-
erican Revolution. The ladies are quoting his 1947 statement that
UNESCO marks "very real progress toward the genuine goal of world
government." . . .Milton had to write a letter to Congressman Mer-
row of New Hampshire explaining that he wasn't for world govern-
ment, though he was strong for the United Nations . . . Milton served
some time as chairman of the U.S. delegation to UNESCO during the
Truman Administration, and in the days when he made the state-
ment it was more fashionable to talk about world cooperation. Today
the isolationist wave has sent various people running for political
foxholes.
