Latest Deadline in the State














-Daily-Paddy McHirtzel
Erin Go rau - iqui Too



The only parade in Ann Arbor
yesterday was the one which
wound two by two, and three by
three to an East Liberty pub.
While the Irish celebrated with
a lengthy parade heralded by tick-
ertape and shamrocks in New
York City, students from the Uni-
versity - those over 21 - found
their way to this oasis of green
in a windblown, colorless city.
Tavern, Drinkers Loade&
From the looks 'o it, everyone
was of at least three-fourths Irish
extraction. The drinking establish-
ment was packed most of the aft-
ernoon and evening by bleary-
eyed sons and daughters of Erin
topped with appropriate green
fedoras and loaded with unmeas-
urable quantities of green beer.
The crowd peaked about five
p.m., then tapered off until later
in the evening when the proverbial
roof came down. From about 7:30
p.m. till closing time, the estab-
lishment was a seething mass of
students, beer and noise.
One small group of malcontents
was heard to chant mournfully on
occasions throughout the evening:
"WE want BEER in the UNION."
No Greens Here
But most of the crowd concen-
trated on the liquid pleasures at
City Chosen
To Host 11
Soviet Editors
Ann Arbor will be host to the 11
Russian student editors whom the
State Department has permitted
to visit the United States.
Arthur Nagle, Director of the
Department of Special Programs
for the Institute on International
Education in New York, yesterday
confirmed a Moscow radio an-
nouncement that the editors would
visit Ann Arbor and Detroit,
among other American cities.
Two Cities Suggested
Nagle said the Institute had
suggested the two cities to the
Soviet government. He is in Wash-
ington, D.C.; today to work out
the details of the itinerary with
Soviet embassy officiam.
Nagle said there is a "very good
possibility" that the editors will
visit the University. How they
might visit Ann Arbor without
visiting the University was not ex-
Director of University Relations
Arthur L. Brandon indicated he
was pleased that the Russians
would be here. "If they are free
to see for themselves, instead of
under strict discipline, I should
think they will have a pleasant

er comment of a few years ago
about American football, Brandon

possibility of slurping suds in the
Union taproom.
No St. Patrick's Day queens
were named here, but Bay City

and. a parade of 1,000 persons and
hundreds of automobiles wound
through the main streets of the
Motor City.

Gov. G. Mennen Williams-of
German extraction-wore his cus-
tomary green bow-tie while at-
tending a St. Pat's Day Ball in
Down in South Bend, the Notre'
Dame student radio station feat-
ured Irish tunes instead of the
usual hit parade fare. Station
breaks were announced in Gaelic.

Alumni Gather for '
13 8 Birthday Celebration
More than 200 Ann Arbor alumni gathered last night in the Union
to celebrate the University's 138th birthday today.
Before the major address by Rep. Alvin M. Bentley, '40 (R. Mich.),
President Harlan H. Hatcher expressed official observance of the
birthday, simultaneously being celebrated by alumni clubs throughout
the world.
Chartered in 1817, with Indians frequently seen on its first
streets, the University now ranks fourth in the nation in fulltime stu-
dent enrollment, one alumnus0---- ------ --------

Yalta Papers
Baring Starts
Churchill Sees
'Serious Errors'
By The Associated Press
Controversy over the Yalta pap-
ers spilled over into the interna-
tional scene yesterday.
Prime Minister Winston Church-
ill reported "serious mistakes" in
the American account and said
publication of a British version
should be considered.
A dispatch from Moscow said
the Russians were keeping mum
for the present but that it is en-
tirely possible they will issue their
own version later.
Ike Remains Silent
President Dwight D. Eisenhow-
er was staying strictly out of it.
Press secretary James C. Hag-
erty said at the White House1
that the decision to release the
long-secret papers relating to the
Churchill-Roosevelt-Stalin meet-
ing at Yalta in 1945 was made "en-
tirely within the State Depart-
Secretary of State John Foster
Dulles, who released the papers:
Wednesday night, refused angrily
yesterday to say why he did so at
this time.
Nixon Comments
Vice-president Richard Nixon
said yesterday in answer to a
question he does not believe there
was "any deliberate attempt to
sell us out to the Communists" at
He made the statement during7
a question and answer period fol-
lowing a speech before the Execu-
tives Club of Chicago.
An unidentified man asked from
the floor, "What about Yalta?"
Vice-president Nixon said:
"Of course it will take weeks
and months of intelligent study to
determine a correct analysis of the
effects of the pact and comment
intelligibly on it..
"But I don't believe there ac-
tually was any deliberate attempt
to sell us out to the Communists."'
Concessions Made by Optimistis?
He said the "reason concessions
were made was that the leaders
of the free world simply didn't
know what the Communist animal
was like."
"Another reason," he added,
"was that we badly needed Soviet
support atthentime for the con-
quest of Japan.",
The Vice-President told the
large gathering of Chicago busi-
nessmen that there was no doubt,
however, that the concessions to
the Russians were detrimental to
the United States and the free
And, he added, the fall of China
to the Reds could be laid directly
to the door of the pact.
"Of course it naturally follow-
ed," he said, "that we had a war
in Korea and one in Indochina."
"All we can say now," he added,
"is that it was a fault not of the
heart but of the head."

Voicing agreement with Univer-

College name controversy, the con-
gressman turned to a discussion of
world communism.
"We should not recognize or ap-
prove present actions of Commu-

ion, China and the satellites," Rep.
Bentley said. He referred to the
Russian people themselves as "one
great potential in this world yet
unused and unexplored."
Any commercial and economic
intercourse with Iron Curtain
countries, according to Rep. Bent-
ley, is a mistake.
Rep. Bentley expressed general
agreement with policies of Presi-

also commented "the conduct of
our foreign policy in the past few
years has characterized by aban-
donment of moral standards and

Election Win
Aneurin Bevan's ouster from
Britain's Labor Party is foreseen
as a possible impetus to a Conser-
vative victory in the next general
election by Professor Daniel Wit
of the political science department.
Bevan was expelled from the
Labor ranks by a vote of 141-112
on disloyalty charges. He is re-
ported to have told a secret meet-
ing of Labor members from Par-
liament that he would never ask
for reinstatement.
The vote, said Prof. Wit, indi-
cates that Bevan has considerable
party strength. He added Bevan's
ousting might make it more diffi-
cult for the Laborites to wage a
successful campaign.
Might Not Split Party
"Although this move might not
split the entire party," Prof. Wit
said, "it will cause dissension and
a struggle for leadership."
The political science instructor
saw a possibility that Bevan might
attempt to gain control or other
party members might attempt to
retire party leader Clement Atlee
on grounds that the vote reveals
his lack of strong support.
Law compels Prime Minister
Winston Churchill to call a gen-
eral parliamentary election before
October, 1956.
Hydrogen Bomb Decision
Disloyalty charges, said Prof.
Wit, grew out of Bevan's opposi-
tion to Atlee's support of Church-
ill's decision to build the hydrogen
He cited Bevan's opposition to
Atlee's backing of German rearm-
ament and to the party's advoca-
tion of America's farm policy as
other reasons for his expulsion.
Most of Bevan's strength, Prof.
Wit asserted, lies in the party's
neutralist or anti-American mem-
He said that Bevan's ousting
meant a large segment of Brit-
ain's two large parties are suspi-
cious of American intentions in
foreign policy and their capability
of leadership in the Western
