provocation."
A United States Air Force announcement said eight Sabres were
attacked by from 12 to 16 MIGs over international waters, two MIGs
were shot down and one probably was shot down. It said all Sabres
returned safely.

SGC To Act
on Proposed
Positions
l Student Government Council
will act on recommendations for
appointment to three committees
at its 7 p.m. meeting today in the
Union.
Nominating and Interviewing
Committee under the leadership
of Tom Sawyer, '58, will announce
appointments for approval to the
Driving Regulations Study Com-
mittee, the Cinema Guild commit-
tee and the Student Book Ex-
change manager and his assistant.
Study Ban Regulations
The Driving Study committee is
a result of a motion by Eugene
martwig, '55, Daily managing edi-
tor, who proposed a corpmittee to
be-appointed by Vice-President for
Student Affairs James A. Lewis to
study the possible modifications of
the present student driving ban
regulations.
Three students, one from SOC,
two faculty members, and repre-
sentatives from Ann Arbor will
serve on the committee. To start
operation this spring, the commit-
tee should report to SGC by the
eighth week of the fall semester.
SdC will recommend five of the
eleven students who petitioned for
the position to ' Vice-President
Lewis who will then select three
to serve on the committee.
Additional Petitions for Posts
Twenty-two petitions have been
received for the Cinema Guild
committee of which eight will be
selected. Four one-year and four
one-half year positions are open
on the board.
A manager and assistant-man-
ager will be selected from six pe-
titions for the Student Book Ex-
change.
SGC will also discuss a recom-
mendation that the Anti-Discrim-
ination Board which works with
local merchants and housing
groups to eliminate discriminatory
practices should be brought under
h the jurisdiction of the Human and
International Welfare committee
of SGC.
U Hospital
To Continue
Inoculations
University Hospital's pediatrics
department will resume its inocu-
lation schedule as soon as addi-
tional vaccine is available, hospital
officials announced yesterday.
Inoculations were scheduled on
April 23 for infants in the Well-
Baby Clinic, in addition to regular-
ly registered children's clinic pa-
tients, ages one through kinder-
garten level. Only a small portion
of this group was actually inocu-
lated.
The Hospital had to cancel all
inoculation appointments when
the existing small supply of vac-
cine was consumed, and no addi-
tional vaccine was available.
The cancellations included the
small group of youngsters due for
their second inoculation on Satur-
day.
Cutter vaccine had nothing to
do with cancellations, hospital of-
ficials said. They also weren't re-
lated to the present federal order
temporarily halting the licensing
S of vaccine.

Manchurian islands off the coast
and Red Chinese fighters shot
down one Sabre and hit two oth-
ers. It asserted the Sabres "then
fled in the direction of South Ko-
rea." It mentioned no MIG losses.
"The United States authorities
will have to bear full responsibility
for all the grave consequences
arising thbrefrom," said 'Peiping.
The Air Force gave no hint as
to the nationality of the attack-
ers. Peiping made it clear the
MIGs were from "the air force of
the Chinese People's Liberation
Army."~
The Air Force and Peiping ver-
sions agreed pretty well on where
the clash took place. The Air Force
said it was 50 miles southwest of
the Korean border city of Sinuiju.
Near Manchurian Air Base
Peiping said it occurred, about
three miles west of the island of
Talu. Talu is 40 miles southwest
of the big Manchurian air base of
Antung, which is just across the
Yalu River from Sinjiju. The Red
planes probably came from An-
tung.
It was the third attack in 16
months on United States planes
in the skies off the west coast of
North Korea. The Air Force an-
nouncement -said the Sabres were
on a regular patrol.
'After the MIGs began firing at
the Sabres," the Air Force an-
nouncement said, "the American
planes returned the fire.
"In the ensuing battle, two Com-
munist pilots bailed out and the
third plane was last seen diving
straight down trailing smoke."
Auto Accident
Fatal to Two
Two sisters were killed yesterday
in a collision that occurred at 11
a.m. on U.S. 12, four miles vest of
Ann Arbor.
Doris Tefft, 58 -ears old from
Ypsilanti was killed instantly and
Edith Dell, 72 years old from De-
troit, died at University Hospital
about seven hours after the crash
occurred.
A third sister, Evria Tefft, 66
years old from Ypsilanti, was last
reported by University Hospital
authorities as satisfactory.
John Hollester, 45 years old, of
Battle Creek, the driver of the oth-
er vehicle in the crash, was pinned
beneath the twisted wreckage of
his truck-trailer for an hour be-
fore he was removed and sent to
St. Joseph's Hospital. He is not on
the critical list.
The deaths, occurring on the in-
famous "death stretch" brought
the number killed on Washtenaw
County roads this year to 15.

Menu
LOS ANGELES (P)- Almost
all frozen foods subjected to last
Thursday's atomic explosion in
Nevada looked and tasted fine
yesterday, nine experts decided.
The tasters sampled French
fried potatoes, vegetables,
strawberries, chicken pot pie,
cod fish fillets and orange
juice.
Most of the verdicts were that
there was no change in the
flavor, color, texture or appear-
ance of the foods because of the
A-blast.
T Wo_ Silent
In Vaccine
Testimony
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON -- Secretary ofI
Welfare Ovita Culp Hobby and
Surgeon Gen. Leonard Scheele
have declined to testify today be-
fore a House committee investi-
gating the handling of the Salk
polio vaccine.
Rep. D. B. Spence (D-Ky.) re-
ported last night both Mrs. Hobby
and Scheele insisted they "simply
could not come now." He added:
they advised him they would have
more information at a later date.
Rep. Spence heads the House
Banking Committee which is con-
ducting the inquiry. He said he
was not criticising their action be- "
cause he knows "they are in a dif-
ficult position."
Scheele Urges Halt.
Scheele, whose Public Health
Service is part of Mrs. Hobby's
Department of Health, Education
and Welfare, urged over the week-
end that polio vaccinations be
halted while the government dou-
ble checked methods of producing
the vaccine.
Previously the surgeon general
had advised that the inoculation
program continue even though a
small number of children-52 out
of several million, at the latest
count-had come down with polio
after receiving their shots.
Testimony Needed
Rep. Spence said he told Mrs.
Hobby and Scheele their testi-
mony was needed so the commit-
tee could assess the value of sev-
eral pending bills for federal con-
trol over vaccine distribution and
prices. They were not subpoenaed
to appear, merely invited to come.-
A reliable congressional source
said late yesterday he had been
advised that Health Service offi-
cials were awaiting word from ai
meeting of scientists in Detroit to-
day.

New Soviet
Peace Plan

Announced
Bulganin Seeks
NATO Fascimile
MOSCOW W--The Soviet Un-
ion today repeated its call for pro-
hibition of atomic weapons as part
of a sweeping peace plan.
The proposal called for immed-
iate withdrawal of the bulk of
foreign forces from both East and
West Germany.
!It asked the UN General As-
semnbly to declare "a weakening of
international tension can be
achieved by immediate evacuation
of troops of the four big powers
from German territory, leaving}
limited contingents and police
forces."
Meanwhile Soviet Premier Niko-
lai Bulganin sounded in Warsaw
yesterday the keynote for a con-
ference of eight Communist na-
tions to establish a unified North
Atlantic Treaty Organization-type
military alliance under a Russian
commander.
"The situation in certain areas
of the world has still been causing
anxiety of late," Bulganin told
welcomers at the Warsaw airport.
The government news agency
Tass released the text of two dec-
larations it said were submitted to
the United Nations Disarmament
subcommittee in London yester-
day.
The first proposal contained
eight points, including such Soviet
themes as prohibition of foreign
military bases by one state on the
territory of another and prohibi-
tion of any form of war propagan-
da.
The second declaration, which
Tass said was submitted for ac-
tion by the UN General Assembly,
was a formal statement of the So-
viet position in the disarmament
talks which already had been re-
leased by Soviet Delegate Jacob
Malik.

Two Stages Noted
The two stages proposed to Mos-
cow for an attack on "the great
problems which confront us" were
these:
First, an early meeting of the
heads of government to be preced-
ed by a brief session of the four
power foreign ministers. The gov-
ernment chiefs would try to for-
mulate "the issues to be worked
on" and the methods to be follow-
ed in working on them. .
The time and place of the top
level sessions are yet to be deter-
mined. The foreign ministers
would meet at the same place and
their session would merge into
the meeting of their chiefs.
Second, detailed work on the
problems along lines laid out by
the head men-this work to be
carried on "by such methods, or-
gans and participants as it appears
will be most fruitful according to
the nature of the issues."
A short conference is envisaged
by the West among President Ei-
senhower, Eden, Bulganin and
French Premier Edgar Faure-per-
haps in Switerland or in Sweden
during July.
