Hammarskjold in China
Having Little Effect
IT IS QUITE a paradox that the United
Nations Secretary General, Dag Ham-
marskjold, should be in Red China to try and
negotiate for the release of 21 American fly-
First of all, a majority of the UN member
nations have not recognized China under the
Communist rule of Mao Tse-tung. And sec-
ondly, Hammarskjold is negotiating for the
United States which still backs the Formo-
san government of Chiang Kai-shek.
The student of the international scene will
have to admit that Mao et al. has the U.S.
et al. over a barrel.
Red China has been trying not only to re-
ceive recognition from the United States (it
has Britain's, though there appears to be little
honest accord between them) but also to join
the United Nations. Mao's Big Brothers in
Russia have attempted to use UN admittance
for Red China as a bargaining point through-
out the world.
We then have Hammarskjold's present ac-
tion. He is directly accepting the existence of
Communist rule in China on the diplomatic
level, and to a certain extent carrying the UN
with iim. He cannot be speaking only for him-
self for he himself has much less prestige than
if speaking for the UN.
THE CHINESE REDS can well refuse releas-
ing the flyers (as well as additional "UN
personnel"). With such prize captives, they
have a bargaining point for world-wide recog-
nition, which is what they want.
If, as a last resort, the U.S. should declare
,war on Red China for release of these men,
the declaration would in itself be recognition
and so the Reds have won a victory.
We must consider the course of action the
U.S. would take were the flyers used as bal-
ancers for recognition.
On the one hand we have the fact that the
Chinese Reds fought against the United Na-
tions forces (primarily United States soldiers)
in the Korean War, and killed many men.
They were also present in Indochina for an
additional 'black mark' against them. And we
also hear reports that all is not so well behind
the Bamboo Curtain, that their rule is not
as Utopian as they have made out.
On the other hand, they are de facto in
power in China over a vast expanse of land
and vast numbers of people. They have been
recognized by some countries. They are trad-
ing with many countries in the world, and are
presently trying to step up trade with their
usual economic ally, Japan.
F THE Chinese Reds were to openly state
that they would exchange the airmen for
U.S. recognition, our state department might
well call it blackmail, but we would more ser-
iously have to consider granting the recogni-
Thus we have a case where diplomatic
recognition is the only missing link to Red
China's full participation in the world of
nations. We can easily see why there is much
to keep Red China out of the UN, for after all,
they stand for things opposed to the general
tenor of the UN's Charter.
THUS while opposing China's admission to
the UN is proper, keeping U.S. recognition
away from this ruling Asiatic power is not so
gasily maintainable, especially now when the
United States is trying to have American
citizens released from China, but is forced
to negotiate through the Red Cross in Swit-
If Dag Hammarskjold obtains the release
of the American flyers and the UN personnel,
he will deserve all the credit and praise he
gets. But we should be prepared for Hammar-
skjold to return to the UN with no guarantee
of the captives' release for he has little if
anything to offer them.
After all, what would the Chinese Reds have

Alumni Out-of-State Awards
A Good Idea To Expand
FROM the outlook of any campus' average
student, alumni don't figure with much
prominence in college or university affairs.
They've come, they've put in their four
years, and they've emerged with their de-
grees-realizing that their further contact with
the campus scene will probably be limited to
periodical requests for money.
UNIVERSITY alumni, however, both in head-
quarters here 'and in offices all over the
country, can be credited with a more than
routine concern in the campus community.
Their contribution of $15,000 to the Michigan
Alumni Fund, earmarked recently for out-of-
state scholarships, shows a realization that the
University can't depend solely on students
from the state for its development.
Next fall will bring to Ann Arbor at least
15 freshmen here mainly because they'll be
granted $1,000 scholarships-to be awarded
in eight installments as long as their records
merit renewal. For many of them, the $125
of outside aid every semester may be the de-
ciding factor in their enrolling here. And plenty
of them, doubtless, will make significant con-
tributions to the University.
FROM the alumni standpoint, perhaps more
important is the factor that these 15 fresh-
men will come from all over the United States,
on the recommendations of their local alumni
groups, and will return to strengthen the Uni-
versity's reputation on a nationwide basis.
Out-of-state scholarships are a good idea.
Their continuation and expansion should be
QUEEN'S BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION
Ellery Queen. Little, Brown & Co., 228 pp.
rFHE LATEST volume out under the Queen
signature--the 81st--offers something new:
crime in capsule form. Q.B.I. is the "catch all"
title for a collection of 17 of Queen's short-
shorts (most of which have appeared prev-
iously in Sunday supplements) plus a full-
length short story thrown in for good measure.
There is a well-circulated theory which claims
It is more difficult to write a good detective
short story than a three hundred page de-
tective novel. This is probably true. However,
the step from the short story to the short-
short form does not carry on the proposition.
Mainly because in a short short the necessary
dimensions of a good puzzle or problem gen-
erally are absent, and what remains amounts
to little more than a parlor trick, a sleight-of-
hand performance which utilizes a single stage
prop or gimmick-one isolated clue or con-
DESPITE THE simplicity of its form, the de-
tective short-short story could still be
bobbled by an amateur. But Ellery Queen is a
parlor prestidigitator of some accomplishment,
and happily Q.B.I. turns out to be virtually
Stylistically, many of the stories are so
finely polished that the outlines of the crucial
deductions are often reflected in the glittering
facets of the opening paragraph; there is
little left to be desired from the standpoint
On the other hand, some of the individual
ideas around which these brief tales of vi-
olence are constructed are so conjectural or
far-fetched that they might molest the realis-
tic-minded reader--especially in the matter
of the interpretation of speech and jargon and
messages (dying and otherwise).
NONETHELESS, the collection as a whole
pleased this reviewer. Frankly speaking,
any excuse offered for bringing back from the
past our old friends Doc Prouty, Detectives
Piggott and Hesse, and lovable old Sergeant
Velie-for even a brief nostalgic reunion--is
a gratefully accepted one.

WASHINGTON (AP) -Following is
a condensed version of Presiden SEi-
senhower's State of the Union mes-
sage to Congress today:
First, I extend cordial greetings
to the 84th Congress. We shall
have much, to do together; I am
sure that we shall get it done-
and, that we shall do it in har-
mony and good will.
At the outset, I believe it would
be -well to remind ourselves of this
great fundamental in our nation-
al life: Our common belief that
every human being is divinely en-
dowed with dignity and worth and
inalienable rights. This faith, with
its corrollary--that to grow and
flourish people must be free -
shapes the interests and aspira-
tions of every American.
Foremost among these broad
purposes of government is our sup-
port of freedom, justice and peace.
It is of the utmost importance
that each of us understand the
true nature of the struggle now
taking place in the world.
The military threat is but one
menace to our freedom and se-
curity. We must not only deter
aggression; we must also frustrate
the effort of Communists to gain
their goals by subversion.
To this end, free nations must
maintain and reinforce their co-
hesion, their internal security,
their political and economic vital-
ity, and their faith in freedom.
In such a world, America's
course is clear:
We must tirelessly labor to make
the peace more just and durable.
We must strengthen the collec-
tive defense under the United Na-
tions Charter and grid ourselves
with sufficient military strength
and productive capacity to dis-
courage resort to war and protect
our nation's vital interests.
We must continue to support
and strengthen the United Nations.
At this very moment, by vote of
the United Nations General As-
sembly, its secretary-general is in
Communist China on a mission of
deepest concern to all Americans:
seeking the release of our never-
to-be-forgotten American aviators
and all other United Nations pris-
oners wrongfully detained by the
We must also encourage the ef-
forts being made in the United
Nations to limit armaments and to
harness the atom to peaceful use.
We must expand international
trade and investment and assist
friendly nations whose own best
efforts are still insufficient to pro-
vide the strength essential to the
security of the free world.
We must be willing to use the
processes of negotiation whenever
they will advance the cause of just
and secure peace to which the
United States and other free na-
tions are dedicated.
In respect to all these matters,
we must, through a vigorous in-
formation program, keep the peo-
ples of the world truthfully ad-
vised of our actions and purposes.
We must also carry forward our
educational exchange program.
This sharing of knowledge and ex-
perience between our citizens and
those of free countries is a pow-
erful factor in the development
and maintenance of true partner-
ship among free peoples.
We must gradually reduce cer-
tain tariff obstacles to trade. These
actions should, of course, be ac-
companied by a similar lowering
of trade barriers by other nations,
so that we may move steadily to-
ward greater economic advantage
We must further simplify cus-
First, a realistic limitation of
armaments and enduring, just
peace remain our national goals;
we maintain powerful military
forces because there is no presen't
alternative - forces designed for
deterrent and defensive purposes
alone but able instantly to strike
back with destructive power in re-
sponse to an attack.
Second, we must stay alert to
the fact that undue reliance on
one weapon or preparation for on-
ly one kind of warfare simply in-
vites an enemy to resort to anoth-
er. We must, therefore, keep in
our armed forces balance and flex-
ibility adequate for our purposes
Third, to keep our --rmed forces
abreast of the advances of science,
our military planning must be
flexible enough to utilize the new
weapons and techniques which
flow ever more speedily from our
research and development pro-
The forthcoriing military bud-
get therefore emphasizes modern
airpower in Air Force, Navy and
Marine Corps and increases the
emphasis on new weapons, es-
pecially those of rapid and des-
tructive striking power.
It accelerates the continental de-
fense program and the build-up
of ready military reserve forces.
It continues a vigorous program
of stockpiling strategic and criti-
cal materials and strengthening
our mobilization base. The budget
also contemplates the strategic
concentration of our strength
through redeployment of certain
It provides for reduction of
their expansion in others, to fit
them to the military realities of
Fourth, pending a world agree-
ment on armament limitations, we
must continue to improve and ex-
pand our supplies of nuclear weap-
ons for our land, naval and air
forces while, at the same time,
continuing our encouraging prog-
ress in the peaceful use of atomic
And fifth, in the administration
of these costly programs, we must
demn d the utmost in efficiency
and ingenuity We must assure our
people not only of adequate pro-
tection but also of a defense that
can be carried forward from year
to year until the threat of aggres-
sion has disappeared.
To help maintain this kind of
armed strength and improve its
efficiency, I must urge the enact-
ment of several important meas-
ures in this session.
For the forseeable future, our
standing forces must remain much
larger than voluntary methods'
can sustain. We must, therefore,
extend the statutory authority to
induct men for two years of mili-
To encourage more trained ser-
vicemen to remain in uniform, I
shall, on the 13th of this month,
propose a number of measures to
increase the attractions of a mili-
tary career. These measures will
include more adequate medical
care for dependents, survivors'
benefits, more and better housing,
and selective adjustments in mili-
tary pay and other allowances.
And third-alsovon Jan. 13-I
shall present a program to rebuild
and strengthen the civilian com-
ponents of our Armed Forces.
Control of Subversion
Maintenance of an effective de-
fense requires continuance of our
aggressive attack on subversion at
home. In this effort we have, in
the past two years, made excellent
and to destroy Communist subver-
We shall, in the process, care-
fully preserve our traditions and
the basic rights of our citizens.
At this time the executive and
legislative branches are under the
management of different political
parties. This fact places both par-
ties on trial before the American
In less perilous days of the past,
division of governmental respon-
sibility among our great parties
has produced a paralyzing indeci-
sion. We must not let this happen
in our time. We must avoid a
paralysis of the will for peace and
In the traditionally bipartisan
areas-military security and for-
eign relations-I' can report to
you that I have already, with the
leaders of this Congress, expressed
assurances of unreserved co-oper-
ation. Yet, the strength of our
country requires more than main-
tenance of mere military strength
and success in foreign affairs;
these vital matters are in turn de-
pendent upon concerted and vigor-
ous action in a number of sup-
My budget message on Jan. 17,
the economic report on the 20th
of this month, and several special
messages will set forth in detail
major programs to foster the
growth of our economy and to pro-
tect the integrity of the people's
Last year we had a large tax
cut and, for the first time in 75
years, a basic revision of federal
tax laws. It is now clear that de-
fense and other essential govern-
ment costs must remain at a level
precluding further tax reductions
Although excise and corporation
taxes must therefore, be continued
at their present rates, further tax
cuts will be possible when justified
by lower expenditures and by rev-
enue increases arising from the
nation's economic growth. I am
hopeful that such reductions can
be made next year.
I believe that the nation must
adhere to three fundamental po-
licies: First, to develop, wisely use
and conserve basic resources from
generation to generation.
Second, to follow the historic
pattern of developing these re-
sources primarily by private citi-
zens under fair provisions of law,
including restraints for proper
Third, to treat resource devel-
opment as a partnership under-j
taking-a partnership in which
the participation of private citi-
zens and state and local govern-
ments is as necessary as federal
This policy of partnership and
co-operation is producing good re-
sults, most immediately noticeable
in respect to water resources. First,
it has encouraged local public
bodies and private citizens to plan
their own power sources. Increas-
ing numbers of applications to the
Federal Power Commission to con-
duct surveys and prepare plans
for power development, notably in
the Columbia River Basin, are evi-
dence of local response.-
Second, the federal government
and local and private organiza-
tions have been encouraged to co-
ordinate their developments.
Such partnership projects as
Priest Rapids in Washington, the
Coosa River development in Ala-
bama, and Markham Ferry in Ok-
lahoma already have the approval
of the Congress. This year justifi-
able projects of a similar nature
will again have administration
Third, the federal government
must shoulder its own partnership
obligations by undertaking pro-
jects of such complexity and size
that their success requires federal
development. In ke'eping with this
principle, I again urge the Con-
gress to approve the development
of the Upper Colorado River Basin
to conserve and assure better use
of precious water essential to the
future of the West.
In addition, the 1956 budget wili
recommend appropriations to start
six new reclamation and more
than 30 new Corps of Engineers
projects of varying size. Going
projects and investigations of po-
tential new reseource develop-
ments will be continued.
Although this partnership ap-
proach is producing encouraging
results, its full success requires a
nation-wide comprehensive water
resources policy firmly based in
law. Such a policy is under prepar-
ation and when completed will be
submitted to the Congress.
As a result of the flexibility pro-
vided by the agricultural act of
1954, we can move toward less
restrictive acreage controls.
Farm production is gradually
adjusting to markets, markets are
being expanded, and stocks are
moving into use. We can now look
forward to an easing of the influ-
ences depressing farm prices, to
Ireduced government expenditures
for purchase of surplus products,
and to less federal intrusion into
the lives and plans of our farm
people. Agriculture programs have
