Lake Committee
To Set Up Here;
The University will serve as headquarters for the newly-estab-
lished Great Lakes Commission, Michigan Attorney General Thomas
M. Kavanagh announced yesterday at a news conference held in the
Regents room of the Administration Building.
University President Harlan H. Hatcher welcomed theuCommis-
sion and expressed the hope that the commission and university
might be mutually beneficial.
Offices in Rackham
The offices, which have already been turned over to the or-
ganization, are located in the Rackham Building.
After consideration of several places, the University was chosen
to house the group because of its proximity to rail and air connec-
otions and its interest in the Great

today at several locations around campus. Only a limited number
of the hats were purchased.
Republicans Seek.
FarmBill Support


House leaders sought yesterday to
rally wavering GOP ranks behind
a substitute farm bill which Presi-
dent Eisenhower will sign.
Following a two-hour strategy
meeting of GOP house members,
Republican Leader Joseph Martin
of Massachusetts said a final deci-
sion still has to be reached on the
form of a substitute for the Sen-
ate-House compromise coming to
a showdown vote in the house to-
But. Rep. C. R. Hope of Kansas,
ranking Republican on the ouse
Agriculture Committee, told dews-
men that unless there was a big
and unexpected shift in the Demp-
cratic vote the Republican move to
make basic changes in the farm
bill would be beaten.
Rep. H. R. Gross (R-Iowa) said
after the conference that the GOP
substitute "will be beaten" and the
compromise measure "will be pass-
"I am hopeful sanity will pre-
vail," was all that Martin would
say about the substitute's chances.
Although Martin reported the
GOP strategy had not been worked
out in detail, the GOP proposal to
be submitted to the House Wednes-
day is understood to call for a
return to the flexible price support
program in effect for the 1955
- crop.
Under this, prices of major crops
,and dairy products are supported

by the government at from 75 to
90 per cent of parity.
The Senate-House conference
bill, pronounced unacceptable by
the administration, calls for rein-
statement of rigid price' supports
at 90 per cent of parity. The bill
must still be acted upon by senate
and house.
Martin predicted that if the Re-
publicans get their substitute
measure through Congress, Pre4-
dent Eisenhower would sign it.

Lakes Basin.
Lake Hydraulics Laboratory of
the Engineering Research Institute
and the Great Lakes Research In-
stitute are the two major Univer-
sity groups concerned with this
The latter is an organization
within the Horace H. Rackham
School of Graduate Studies. Its
purpose is to enecourage and in-
tegrate "studies of the physical,
chemical, biological and other as-
pects of the Great Lakes and re-
lated areas."
Concerned With Lake Problems!
The commission, whose mem-,
bership is made up of representa-
tives from Great Lakes Basin
states, . is concerned with such
things as maintaining lake levels,
pollution control, beach erosion,
navigation, fisheries, power devel-
opment and diversion of waters
from and into the basin.
Its importance has been in-
creased because of the present
need of large quantities of water
required to cool atomic reactors,
Kavanagh added.
The commission's interest in-
cludes any part of the Great Lakes
watershed which touches on the
involved states.
Developed From Conference
After about 15 years of propo-
sals, the Great Lakes Basin Com-I
pact was developed following a
Great Lakes States Seaway and

this compact and its present form'

tive powers, but can make recom-

authorities claimed rigid military
control on Nicosia's busy interna-
tional airport yesterday as a safe-
guard against rebel sabotage.
Royal Air Force men took full,
charge of airport operations and
a strict security ring was thrown
around the field. X-ray equipment
was installed to scan luggage, mail
and even passengers' clothing for

Night March
Action Called
Marine Corps court of inquiry
heard testimorW yesterday from
survivors of a forced night march
into a treacherous tidal stream,
ordered by a drill sergeant "to
teach the platoon discipline."
Six of the 75 recruits who were
led into the river near this "boot"
training center by S. Sgt. Matthew
C. McKeon of Worchester, Mass.,
Gen. Randolph Pate, Marine
Corps commandant who came
here from Washington to make a
personal investigation, said the
forced march was "most unusual"
and unique in his experience. He
said McKeon had no authority for
disciplinary action nor for sched-
uling such a march.
Maj. Gen. Joseph C. Burger, the
base commander, also said the
march was unscheduled and called
it "a most serious tragedy."
McKeon, 31, who will remain in
custody until the inquiry is' com-
pleted, issued a statement through
his counsel stating that he led the
men on the ill-fated march to.
teach them discipline.
"I can't find words to express
my grief," he added. -
Macy Store
Hit by Strike
NEW YORK ()-Pickets by the
thousands ringed the fabulous
Macy department store in Mid-
Manhattan yesterday in a strike
called by a union representing
most of the store's 8,000 employes.
Business, however, went on more
or less as usual. Nonunion and
supervisory employes manned the
counters-albeit a bit awkwardly
in some cases.
While jeers and boos of the
parading pickets discouraged some
would-be customers from entering
the portals of the world's largest
department store, many others
went right on in.
"Naturally," said a store spokes-
man, "business isn't going to be
quite the same as on a normal
The strike was called at 12:01
a.m. yesterday by Local 1-S of the
Retail, Wholesale and Department
Store Workers. The union's con-
tract with the store expired April
1 and a new agreement could not
be reached.

Central Michiga n by 8-5

Al Sigman's 400-ft. home run
with two men on base broke a 4-4
deadlock in the fifth inning and
gave the Michigan diamondmen
an 8-5 victory over Central Mich-
igan in their home opener yes-

Sigman's clout travelled well
over the 380-foot mark on the
centerfield fence and capped a
five-run fifth inning splurge to
break an otherwise tight game
wide open.
Fabulous Fifth
The fabulous fifth opened with
a bang as Frank. Ronan, batting
for pitcher Jim Clark, connected
with a single. After Captain Moby
Benedict fanned, Bruce Fox and
Howie Tommelein followed with
quick singles, Ronan scoring from
second on Tommelein's clout. Ken
Tippery flied out to right field
before .Steve Boros added the
fourth single of the inning to
score Fox.
Then Sigman smashed his long
homer and a Wolverine victory
was all but in the bag.

however, coach Ray Fisher's big-

Dulles Holds
Top Level
Ike To Present
Major Policies
WASHINGTON () - Secretary
of State John Foster Dulles paved
the way yesterday for a possible
request that Congress give re-
dent Dwight D. Eisenhower auth-
ortty to use American troops in
the Middle East if war dangers
become acute there.
Dulles keeping in close touch
with Pres. Eisenhower, met for 1%!
hours with 14 key members of
Congress at the State Department.
Eight were Republicans and s
were Democrats.
Situation Reviewed
He reviewed with them the tense
Middle East situation made even
more serious by inew Arab-Israeli
It was reported that he skirted
-but did not directly raise-the
question of asking Congress for a
Formosa-type resolution.
The White House announced
Pres. Eisenhower will make a ma-
jor foreign policy address on- April
21. It will be delivered in Wash-
ington before the American So-
ciety of Newspaper Editors and
presumably will cover the Middle
East crisis.
White House Statement
Focal point of Dulles' consulta-
tion with the congressional lead-
ers was Monday's White House'
-statement that any aggressorI
the Middle East will have to reck-
on with U.S. opposition.
The statement drew w a r m
praise yesterday from Britain and
France, in strong contrast to the
criticisms and goads toward ac-
tion they have been beaming at
Washington lately. But it did not
halt bloodshed or bring the Arabs
and Israelis into any friendlier at,
No Commient
Neither side *commented im-
mediately on it.
It did, however, bolster the hand
of U.N. Secretary General Dag
Hammarskjold, who launched his
month-long on-the-spot survey of
the Middle East tinderbox by, mak-
ing initial calls at Tel Aviv and
No Resolution Asked
The key members of Congress
who met with Dulles came away
telling reporters Dulles had not
asked them for a resolution auth-
orizing Pres. Eisenhower to act a.
he deemed fit in the Middle East
Pres.-Eisenhower got that kind
of authority from Congress last
year when war clouds gathered
over Forinosa.
He still has it, although the Chi-
nese Communists never launched
a feared invasion of the Natonal-
ist stronghold of Formosa, which
the United States is sworn by
treaty to protect.

Detroit Attorney Criticizes
Banks .in Talk .before AAFR
Banks, the interest rates they charge, and the deposit currency
they create received a thorough scolding here last night by Mr. U. S.
A. Heggblom in the Wesley Lounge.
Heggblom, asked to campus by the Ann Arbor Fellowship of
Reconciliation-a pacifist, integrationist group, 'with predominantly
a Quaker, Menonite, and Church of the Brethern orientation-spoke
on the "Madness of Our Economic System" and recommended the
abolition of banks in favor of government le.nding.
"Banks create depressions," claimed the bull-throated Detroit
attorney, "by creating money and charging interest for it."
This is Heggblom's panacea,i"the middle road between socialism
and capitalism" as he termed it:
take the new Mackinac Bridge as FLORIDA VACATION P
a case in point. In place of issuing
bonds to financiers to pay the Sc ,
$100,000,000 cost for labor and Scot H its Ja
materials, which would bring the
plus-interest cost of the bridge to -
nearly $150,000,000, let the gov-
ernment create the money.
After the structure is completed
$100,000,000 in tolls will be collect-
ed and the money repayed to the
government. This way the money :
