University building at a cost of
$1,400,000, it was announced dur-
ing Thanksgiving recess.
The University may purchase the
building from the Ann Arbor Board
of Education if the State Legisla-'
ture approves. University Vice-
President Wilbur K. Pierpont said
the Board of Regents has already
given its approval of the purchase.
Holding -an option on the struc-
ture, the University plans tenta-
tively to purchase the building, re-
habilitate it, and construct an ad-
dition to its east side at an estimat-
ed total cost of $3,750,000.
Pierpont has sent a request for
approval of the program to the
state controller's office.
Obtained Option in 1950
The University obtained the op-
tion in 1950, when it sold its Sta-
dium Hills property to the Ann Ar-
bor Board of Education for con-

On Censure
Senate Approves
McCarthy Move
eph R. McCarthy (R-Wis.) won
Senate agreement yesterday to
wind up debate and start voting
tomorrow on the question of cen-
suring him.
Sen. William M. Langer (R-
N.D.) blocked the move for a
while, but withdrew his objection
after earnest appeals on the Sen-
ate floor by Republican and Dem-
ocratic leaders-as well as by Sen.
McCarthy and his supporters.
The action came after Sen. Mc-
Carthy, his right arm in a sling,
dramatically offered towithdraw
any "discourteous and offensive"
language of the kind that led to
the filing of censure charges
against him.
Refuses to Retreat
At the same time the Wisconsin
Senator refused to back down an
inch from the views and actions
reflected in those words of his.
"In the facts and opinions that
I held, I am unchanged," declared
Sen. McCarthy, a slow-gaited fig-
ure of apparent weariness as the
resumed Senate debate on the
censure charges dragged through
an all afternoon and early even-
ing session.
Sen. Langer never did say why
he objected to Sen. McCarthy's
cut-it-short proposal. Apparently,
though, he was simply tired of the
long wrangling that had been go-
ing on over the wording of the
Seeks Proviso
Sen. McCarthy tried at one point
to get in a proviso that he could
file some censure charges of his
own against his accusers. Under
the rules, this would give those ac-
cused - Sen. McCarthy named
Sens. Ralph Flanders (R-Vt.),
William Fulbright (D-Ark.) and
Wayne Morse (Ind.-Ore.) as likely
targets-only 30 minutes to de-
fend themselves.
Sen. John McClellan (D-Ark.)
called this a "flagrant violation"
of fair play rules and in the end
Sen. McCarthy abandoned the
The final agreement to limit de-
bate was sponsored jointly by GOP
Leader Knowland of California
and Democratic Leader Lyndon
Johnson of Texas.
Sen. Everett Dirksen (R-Ill.)
announced he will have ready a
complete substitute for the cen-
sure resolution submitted by the
Watkins committee and later
broadened to rebuke Sen. McCar-
thy for attacking the Watkins
committee itself.

Strike Snags
DETROIT (A -Federal and state
mediators said last night "a lot of
work still is to be done" if a
threatened strike against the Chry-
sler Corp. is averted before a 7
a.m. deadline today.
Negotiators from Chrysler and
the CIO United Auto Workers un-
ion slugged it out at the bargain-
ing table all day.
Dinner Break
The important talks were re-
cessed for a two-hour dinner
break, to be resumed at 8 p.m.
There were indications they might
go throughout the night up to the
strike deadline.
As the recess began at 6 p.m.,
Federal Mediator E. M. Sconyers
commented: "Both parties are ex-
erting realistic efforts toward set-
Earlier, however, a Chrysler
spokesman said "if the parties
make a diligent effort, we believe
an agreement can be reached. We
are prepared toamakersuch an ef-
fort at this meeting."
A strike now could interfere se-
riously with Chrysler's drive to
get a larger part of the automo-
bile market in its big competitive
fight with Ford and General Mo-
Back Up Demands
The UAW threatened to shut
down Chrysler's Automotive Body
Division to back up its demands
for a company-union contract cov-
ering 850 office workers in the di-
vision. They voted last August to
have the UAW represent them.
A strike would idle 30,000 imme-
diately and, if prolonged, would
idle close to 150,000 in Chrysler
While it wasn't specific, the UAW
said issues involved are wage re-
classifications, production stand-
ards and safety and health meas-
ures for the white collar workers.

To Act
in Asia;

ficial labelling of a person as a
Communist is a new weapon used
by the ruling military junta to rid
itself of enemies.
"This has actually increased the
number of Communists in Iran,"
he commented, "since people who
have lost relatives after they were
denounced have turned Communist
out of hatred."
According to Prof. Beauford J.
George, Jr., of the Law School, the
bond required this afternoon by im-
migration officials may possibly
be put up by either a surety com-
pany or by two or more American
citizens pledging property valued
at twice the bond's amount.
May Go Free
As soon as the $1,000 is raised,
Prof. George continued, Navidza-
deh will be free until the deporta-
tion hearing takes place sometime
in the near future. The student will
file the petition for political asy-
lum today.
Prof. George, who has been han-
dling the case, said the McCarran-
Walters Imnmigration Act provides
for asylum if physical persecution
will follow a person's deportation
to his homeland. Navidzadeh
claims he will be executed if he re-
turns to Iran now.
Another possibility which may
grant the student asylum here is
passage of a private bill sponsored
by Rep. Thaddeus M. Machrowicz
(D-Mich.). If the McCarran Act
provision is not applied and the
bill doesn't pass in Congress the
United States will be required to
deport Navidzadeh, as he is an
alien illegally in this country since
his passport was cancelled.
Established Iranian Magazine
The 30-year-old graduate stu-
dent said he established and pub-
lished Gendarme Magazine in Iran
for about four years after he fin-
ished a law school and the nation-
al army school there in 1948.
"I believe the Shah of Iran is a
well-educated and kind man," Nav-
idzadeh continued. "I believe in
him and in Iran's monarchy. But I
hate the lawlessness which pres-
ently exists in my country," he

Naval or Air
Force Use
CHICAGO LA-Secretary of State
John Foster Dulles said last night
the United States will act "vigor-
ously" to maintain peace in Asia
but he ruled out for the present any
naval or air blockade of Red China.
Sec. Dulles said, in a speech pre-
pared for the 4-H Club Congress,
that America's greatest contribu-
tion to peace "is to be ready to
fight, if need be."
"That does not mean being truc-
ulent or provacative or militaris-
tic," he said.
Will Look For Change
The Secretary pledged the United
States will "look anxiously for
signs of real change in the attittude
of international Communists." But
he said the United States would not
be fooled by any trickery in words
like "coexistence" and wpuld re-
main vigilant in the interests of
"the common defense."
The Secretary spoke out in what

vance was a major foreign policy
His statement ruling out any na-
val and air blockade of the Red
China mainland came on the heels

Communists appeared to be talk-

Even so, the Secretary said,

than seemed to be the case a few
years ago."
"Outrage Decencies"
He repeated America's policy is
to have enough striking power to
respond against any new Commu-
nist aggression at a place and with
the means of our own choosing.

armistice agreements and they out-
rage the elemental decencies of in-

Potato Preserving Process
Developed in University Lab

MOSCOW-Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov called yes-
terday for a formal Eastern military bloc including East Germany
to counter the system of alliance the West is building up.
Molotov addressed the opening session of the Communists' Euro-
pean Collective Security Conference. Soviet officials had invited 25
countries, but the Western Powers turned down the bid.

A University atomic engineer
proposed a potato-preservifng pro-
cess yesterday that would enable
farmers to sell their potatoes all
year around.
Prof. Lloyd E. Brownell, super-
visor of the University's fission
products laboratory and a profes-
sor of chemical and metallurgical
engineering, told the American So-
ciety of Refrigerating Engineers in
Philadelphia how it would be done.
Prof. Brownell suggested a plant
that could treat 250 bushels of
potatoes an hour at an estimated
.ost of six cents a bushel, atomic-

ally destroying their growth cells
but leaving their taste and food
value unimpaired.
"There is no reason why such a
facility could not be constructed
in the next year," Prof. Brownell
said. He said the plant would cost
about $50,000 and could be oper-
ated for about $40,000 a year.
Prof. Brownell said the potatoes
would travel along a conveyor belt
through a thick-walled chamber"
housing a radioactive source. When
they came out the other end, he
said, they would have received an
atomic dose that could have killed
a human being. However, the po-
tatoes would merely lose their ca-
pacity for growth.
The professor said two batches
of potatoes from the fall crop of
1953, one of them irradiated and
the other stored normally, are un-
der study at the University. The ir-
radiated potatoes show no signs of
deterioration while the untreated
potatoes have rotted and grown
long sprouts, he said.

Boost County
School Funds
Washtenaw County schools will
receive more revenue from the
county as the result of a State
Supreme Court ruling yesterday.
The Court issued a writ of man-
damus to forde the county board
of supervisors and East Ann Ar-
bor to levy school taxes on the
state equalized tax base instead of
a county equalized valuation.
As a result of the ruling, coun-
ty schools will receive up to $200,-
000 more revenue.

emphatically yesterday that war-
ships and planes of the 7th
