And a United Nations spokes-
man said the secretary general is
making some progress toward
keeping it calm.
Late last night there had been
no report of any border incident
since Thursday afternoon.
Egypt is understood to have as-
sured Hammarskold all Arab
commandos have withdrawn from
Israel cliarged the raiders had
killed 14 and wounded 32 since
Both sides handed Hammar-
skjold written assurance they
would refrain from hostile acts.
An air battle Thursday and an
exchange of fire across the fron-
tier of the Gaza strip followed the
pledges. Then hostilities ceased.
Israel charged there were two
new Arab incidents Friday, but
neither involved the frontier .with
Egypt. An Asraeli Army spokes-
man said a child in -the Jewish
section of Jerusalem was wound-
ed by a shot from the Arab-held
quarter. Israeli workers also were
reported fired on in the' central
Jordan River valley.
The Israeli-Egyptian frontier re-
gion appeared almost relaxed.

ister Mahmoud Fawzi. He will see

summer and it was endorsed by
the U. N. security council. Troops

withdrawl in principle. It had op-
posed the idea previously.
Ann Arbor's new city chatter has
left the city without a Planning
Commission and a Board of Health
until July 1.
The section in the charter which
sets up the operatoral schedule
states the Planning Commission
and the board of Health shall
cease to exist "as previously con-
stituted" on the day the charter
goes into effect, which was last
Monday. But the charter states.
that appointments to these de-
partments shall take effect July 1.
The water, police, fire, park, and
public works commissions were
also scheduled to end Monday as
administrative bodies. As such,
they can be replaced by advisory
bodies at the council's discretion.
The Planning Commission and
the Board of Health have charter
status, and thus cannot legally be
replaced. According to City At-
torney William M. Laird, no escape
provision can be found.
A charter amendment would
take too much time to offer much
Laird suggested that the mem-
bers of the bodies can probably be
appointed to meet on an informal
basis until July 1. Lawrence H.

AUGUSTA, Ga. (P) -- President'
Dwight D. Eisenhower, mum on re-
ports he has decided to veto the
farm bill, may make a nationwide
TV-radio address next week to ex-
plain whatever action he takes.
As the President awaited the
arrival of Secretary of Agriculture
Ezra T. Benson for a conference
today on the controversial election
year bill, White House Press Sec-
retary James C. Hagerty said Pres-
ident Eisenhower is thinking about
going to the American people on
the politically hot issue.j
Hagerty cautioned newsmen
against concluding that consider-
ation President Eisenhower is gt-
ing to the idea of a TV-radio talk
means necessarily that the Presi-
dent already has made up his
mind to veto the bill, which he has
called unworkable. :l
He said President Eisenhower
may go on the air "whatever ac-
tion he takes"-whetaher he signs
or vetoes the measure which Con-
gress approved despite vigorous
administration objections to cer-
tain major provisions.
Ike May Veto
Reports persisted that Eisen-
hower will announce a veto when
he returns to Washington next
week from a working Augusta va-
cation but Hagerty refused to dis-
cuss the reports.
Hagerty said a decision regard-
ing a Presidential TV-radio talk
"quite probably" will be made at
the President's conference today
with Secretary Benson.
The agriculture secretary, who
also has sharply criticized the farm
bill, will be joined at the session
by a team of administration aides
Key Democrats in Congress have
said President Eisenhower must
sign the bill or get no farm legisla-
tion this year.
Gaar took his undergraduate
work at the University. His able
teammate, Madden from New
Jersey came from Princeton.
Justice Cark in a statement to
the Daily said "~It is about the
finest competition I have been to."
A group of singing law students,
the Psurfs, dedicated a song of
"Dixie" to Justice Clark. In his
remarks he said, "I don't know if
they are singing Dixie to me down
in Dixie now or not."

Judge of the 6th Circuit Court of

IHC To Discuss
By VERNON NAHRGANG
A proposal to increase room and
board rates in tAe Residence Halls
$20 a year was yesterday's discus-
sion topic among quadrangle stu-
dents, many of whom were curious
as to what action the Inter-House
Council would take.
At the same tme, former IHC
President Tom Bleha, '56, an-
nounced the council would hold its
special meeting, to discuss the pro-
posal, at 7:30 p.m. Monday in East
Bleha also reported members of
the administration would be pres-
ent to answer the delegates' ques-
Meanwhile, concerned residents
of the University's housing units
recalled action taken by the IHC
on a proposed $50 rate increase
At that time, the IHC, "reluct-
antly accepted" the proposed in-
crease, but provided that five con-
ditions must be met.
Bleha, who hinted at Thursday's
meeting that this would be the
best'action for the council to take
this year, said yesterday he
thought three of the five condi-
tions had been met.
IHC Given Part
He said IHC had been given a
part in planning for new Residence
Hall units, that the salary of staff
assistants had been increased and
IHC had been given some choice in
staff selection, and that the possi-
bility of alumni and Development
Council aid in finance had been
However, Bleha said the remain-
ing two conditions had not been
met. The contract termination pol-
icy had not been re-evaluated, and
a differential rate scale between
upperclassmen and freshmen had
not been seriously reconsidered.
'U' Rates High
At the last council meeting, the
former IHC president pointed out
"at the present time, Northwestern
is leading the field in Residence
Halls rates, with Wisconsin and
Michigan tied for second."
However, he pointed out, there
are many factors involved that
differ in the case of each school.
Tuesday, after IHC's special
meeting, the proposed $20 increase
is scheduled to be presented to the
Residence Halls Board of Gover-
nors and then to the Regents on

A report from the University's
Finance Office pointed out the
proposed increase would up room

per cent over 1939 figures for com-

Tag Dayv Bucket .Drive
Reaches Record Mark
By BILL HANEY
The Tag Day officials were "very impressed and thankful" for
the record $4,000-plus contributions poured into buckets for the
Fresh Air Camp the past two days.
Officials of Junior Intra-Fraternity Council and Junior Pan-
Hellenic, sponsors of the drive, said the donations from the pockets of
University faculty members and students as well as Ann Arbor resi-
dents would enable 250 under-
privileged boys to go to the Uni-
versity Fresh Air Camp.
Last year the drive netted only
$2,800 dollars' for the two days,
while that total was almost match-
ed the first day this year as 1,000
faculty members, students and
townspeople manned 40 buckets
located throughout campus and
The funds from the drive will
make up one-third of the camp's
budget next summer. The remain-
der of the costs-academic, admin-
istrative, and maintenance will be
met by the University Summer
The faculty was not solicited in
a separate campaign this year as
in the past.
Some of the funds will go into
use this spring as fraternity and
sorority pledges will work on
necessary repairs and improve-
ments at the Camp to prepare it
for the coming seven-week Sum-

One of Gilbert and Sullivan's

Yum-Yum is betrothed to Ko-
