Ike Requests
30 Million.
For Vaccine
28 Million Would
Go to Children
WASHINGTON OP) -.President
Dwight D. Eisenhower yesterday
asked Congress for 30 million dol-
lars to carry forward the polio
program, 28 million of it to in-
sure that poor children get their
shots of Salk vaccine.
The other two million dollars
would go to take precautions
against black marketing of the
vaccine and for the hiring of more
health personnel to test the prod-
uct "for safety and potency."
Eisenhower acted after putting
his approval on a report by Sec-
retary of Welfare Oveta Culp Hob-
by, asking for financial aid and
for reliance on a voluntary sys-
tem of distributing the vaccine.
Questioned by Lehman
After presenting her report to
the President, Mrs. Hobby went
before the Senate Labor and Pub-
lic Welfare Committee, where she
ran into some critical questioning
from Sen. Herbert A. Lehman (D-

ministration should have been

yet, even now, from having adopt-
ed something that will be really,

Free Inoculations
Mrs. Hobby replied that all vac-
cine now available is going to the
National Foundation for Infantile
Paralysis, for use in its program
of free inoculations of first and
second graders.
She said the voluntary plan will
take over when additional vaccine+
is one' hand, and insisted that
"there is no other system that
could be devised that could do the,
job as fairly and effectively."
Mrs. Hobby testified at a stand-
ing-room-only hearing called by
the committee to get her advice on
-t the advisability of mandatory con-
trols or federal standby powers
over distribution of the vaccine.
Too Few CC's{
Dr. Chester Keefer, Mrs. Hob-
by's special aide on the vaccina-
tion program, told the committee
the over-all total of vaccine ship-
ped from manufacturers as of now
is 7,361,090 cubic centimeters.
Mrs. Hobby said 180 million
cc's are needed to inoculate all
children 1 to 19 years old, and ex-
pectant mothers.
First priority goes to children 5
to 9 years old.

CclDorm Crowding
Overcrowding in women's dorms and the "Hill" switchboard
problem were topics of discussion at the Assembly Dormitory Coun-
cil meeting yesterday.
Mary Jo Park, '56, chairman of the Assembly Housing Committee
during the room conversion, made her report.
She said that one delegate from each woman's house was on
the committee, and therefore all the women concerned were repre-
"We considered every possibility, and discussed the matter with
Elsie Fuller, assistant dean of women. This was the only solution to
the problem caused by the expected influx of freshmen," she said.
Miss Park explained that rooms picked for conversion had been
chosen carefully. She outlined the criteria for choosing a room, which
included window space, lighting and the way doors opened.
"A master list was made, describing the rooms as excellent, good
or possible for conversion. This was gone over by Mrs. Fuller andj
members of the committee. No rooms were converted without recom-
mendation of the committee."j
Room Raise Beneficial
She mentioned the room raise, saying that it would be especially
beneficial to women, since "The funds will almost certainly go to
construction of a new women's dorm."
Adding that quite a few rooms were converted last fall, Miss
Park said that relatively few women took the chance to move to{
larger accommodations when they were available. These chances
0 were offered mostly between se-

"As you know," he continued
"the Premier has promised 'coop-
eration with the free nations of the
world.' We are still in a technica
state of war though, and must be
careful of any commitments.
"We are increasing our trade
with both Communist China and
Formosa. The main problem now
is to straighten out our economy
not to become entangled in politi-
cal imbroglios."
Rearmament Must Wait
The Ambassador thought that
rearmament must wait until Ja-
pan is economically stable. "One
must remember that Japan is a
poor country, and it is through re-
building not rearmament that we
will prosper," he said.
Japan is beginning to have a
firm economy. According to Iguchi
she was 310 million dollars in the
red last year. This year the coun-
try is 340 million dollars in the
They appreciate aid from the
United States "as we would from
any other country in the world."
Must Get on Feet
"The important thing for us"
the Ambassador said "is to get on
our feet again. A peace treaty
would be very helpful to the moral
of the Japanese people who still
consider themselves an occupied
The ambassador said the sign-
ing of a peace treaty with the So-
viet Union is partly dependent on
Russia's return of the Sakhalin
islands. "Whether they will give
them back to us is the $64 ques-
tion," he said.
"Right now we wish to maintain
an intermediate position in world
affairs. We are just as disturbed by
American troops in Japan as we
are by the seizure of fishing boats
by the Russians."

Formally Transfers
Lands to French
DALAT, South Viet Nam (,P) -
Chief of State Bao Dai lost his
imperial guard yesterday and his

. crown lands were transferred for-
mally to control of the free Viet
Nam government.
Premier Ngo Dinh Diem travel-
ed to Dalat from Saigon for the
ceremonies merging t e guards-
men with the national army and
giving his administration title to
the mountain territories formerly
ruled solely by Bao Dai, the ex-
Emperor of Annam.
It was the first time since the be-
ginning of the political-military
crisis in mid-March that Diem
ihad left the capital.
Signs Order
Sunday Diem signed an order
incorporating the imperial guard
into the army. This act eliminated
the last important independent
military force in South Viet Nam.
1 Private armies of the Hoa Hao and
Cao Dai religious sects and the
Binh Xuyen society have been re-
duced and scattered since the Binh
Xuyen launched its rebellion last
month. Many units of the sect ar-
mies now are in the national army.
Relinquish Crown Lands
The crown lands actually were
relinquished by Bao Dai to a
French administrator some time
ago. They were signed over to the
Vietnamese government a little
more than a month ago, but Mon-
day brought ceremonial observ-
ance of the transfer and ended the
last bit of French administration.
