Kefauver
Seeks New
Jersey Win
Light Turnout
Expected At Polls
NEWARK, N. J.(P)-Sen. Estes
Kefauver will play his traditional
underdog role in New Jersey's
presidential primary today as he
will vie against both the Demo-
cratic state organization and Pres-
ident Eisenhower.
Kefauyer's slate of convention
delegates; mostly political un-
knowns, seek election over an un-
pledged slate headed by Gov. Rob-
ert B. Meyner and other party
leaders.-
In another section of the ballot-
ing, Kefauver will take on Presi-
dent Eisenhower in a form of
"popularity contest."
The Tennesseean put in six days
of hard campaigning through this
industrial and farming state in an
effort to score another of his up-
sets.
Light Turnout Expeceted
A comparatively light turnout of
voters is expected, possibly less
than a million of the 2,600,000 reg-
istered. Further, rain is predicted.
Polls will be open from 7 a.m.
to 8 p.m. Voters cannot cross party
lines. "Write-ins" are permitted
in the district presidential prefer-
ence voting, the so-called popular-
ity contest, but nospaceis pro-
vided for vice presidential write
ins.
Adlai Stevenson did not enter
'the primary and did not appear in
the state, but his political fortunes
conceivable could be a f e c t e d
somewhat by the outcome.
The unpledged slate generally is
regarded as friendly to Stevenson,
although Meyner has insisted it
will weigh all candidates with an
open mind.
Sources Differ
Political sources differ on what
would-constitute a "substantial"
tefauver showing.
State Democratic C h a i r m a n
George E. Brunner has predicted
that not one of Kefauvers 72-
member delegate slate will be
elected.
Kefauver himself has said he
expects 16 to 20 of hisslate to win
election.
Anything less than that there-
fore would be disappointment to
him, and if he gets any at all, it
would be a disappointment to the
organization.
Student Group
Hears World
Peace Plans
Two lawyers and an investment
broker addressed the Episcopal
Student Foundation Sunday night
on "Plans for World Peace."
Thomas Tilly, a Yale Law
School 'graduate, asserted that,
"The UN is not strong enough to
keep the peace today. Now, there
isn't a body of world law which all
nations respect. There must be
one to insure, a peace."
The Detroit attorney said the
o n I y satisfactory disarmament
program must be universal end
enforced by a world police force.
Harvard graduate Davil Mills
recommended changes in the UN

Charter which would promote
world federalism and peace. The
Charter is up for review in 1958.
Said Mills, "Joining the UN
should be made easier. Voting
should be more representative in
the General Assembly, 2nd the
World Court should be strength-
ened. The Security Council veto
should be skirted by giving the
General Assembly more power."
George Nicholson expressed his
optimism for world peace, de-
peace we can play on an emotion.

Robert Warrick, '57E, listen attentively to yesterday's discussion
of a proposed $20 hike in room and board rates.
IHC Opposes Poposed
Room, Board Increase
By VERNON NAHRGANG
The Inter-House Council yesterday unanimously passed a reso-
lution by its President Robert Warrick, '57E, "strongly opposing the
proposed Room and Board increase."
Meeting in special session to take action on the proposal for a
$20-a-year raise in Residence Halls rates, the IHC listed five
reasons for its unconditional rejection of the rent hike:
"1) The conditions surrounding last year's 'reluctant acceptance'
(on an 'if and only if' basis) have at best only partially been fulfilled.
"2) In the long run, the policy of self-supporting Residence Halls
will prove infeasible.
"3) The present policy has and will lead to pricing persons out
of the residence halls; and, in-
directly, leads to rising rates in
all Ann Arbor housing.

Call Meeting
Successful
Council Relieved
Of Lesser Duties
Ann Arbor's first city council
meeting since the new charter be-
came effective was termed highly
successful by key members of the
city government.
The City Administrator, Guy C.
Larcom, recently appointed as
provided in the new charter, indi-
cated that many of the operating
details previously handled by the
Council or its committees would
now be his responsibility, leaving
the Council free to deliberate on
more important policy matters.
In making his initial report to
the Council, the City Administra-
tor stated that his first week's
activities included reviewing the
budget in preparation of a recom-
mendation to the council, confer-
ences with three bus lines con-
cerning the continuance of bus
service in Ann Arbor, and meetings
with University President Harlan
H. Hatcherwith regard to North
Campus problems.
Major actions taken by the
Council were the election of Coun-
cilman Burns as Mayor pro tem-
pore; creation of an interim plan-
ning commission to be operative
until the permanent commission
comes into being on July 1 in ac-
cordance with charter provision;
approval of nominations from
Mayor Wliliam E. Brown of 37
members from various boards and
commissions.
Also passed were resolutions in-
tegrating the city's old age and
survivor's insurance plans with
federal and state benefits, and
notifying the Board of Appeals
that the Council favored the

The AFL-CIO will consider sus-

Teamster's Union at a special
meeting of the Executive Council
May 1.
AFL-CIO President George
Meany called a meeting after he
and Teamsters President Dave
Beck disagreed over continued
Teamster alliances with the ousted
International Longshoremen's As-
sociation.
Meany insists that the Teams-
ters Union cancel its alliance with
the dock workers union, which was
thrown out of the AFL-CIO be-
cause of suspected influence by
gangsters.
The AFL-CIO President report-
edly told Back that his Teamsters
are violating the labor movement's
constitution by continuing to as-
sociate with the ILA.
Beck contended that the alli-
ance is legal under the AFL-CIO
constitution.
"We didn't accomplish any-
thing," Beck told newsmen as he
left Meany's office. "We felt the
whole thing should go to the Ex-
ecutive Council."
Meany told reporters, "This en-
tire matter will be referred to a
special meeting of the Executive
Council which I am calling for
May 1."

Rep. Warner
Dies at 86 ,
In Ypslanti
State Rep. Joseph E. Warner,
dean of the Michigan Legislature,
died yesterday in Ypsilanti.
S e r v i n g Washtenaw county's
Second District for 30 years, Rep.
Warner was first elected in 1920.
He served until 1930, when he was
defeated in the Republican pri-
mary, but returned to the Legis-
lature in 1936.
Warner, 86 years of age, had
been in poor health for the last
two months. He had been hospit-
alized three previous times be-
cause of an overstrained heart.
During his career in the House,
Warner fought an unsuccessful
battle for capital punishment in
Michigan, and also offered a bill
to take Michigan out of the retail
liquor business.
He supported the community
authority type of hospital opera-
tion, appropriations to schools of
higher education, and the use of
state sales tax funds for school
financing.
He also fought for improved
highways and a state income tax
to replace the present sales tax.
On Warner's birthday last
month, the House passed a resol4-,
tion giving him the title of "dean"
of the State Legislature. Democrats
presented him with a Republican
elephant statue.
Warner had planned to retire
at the end of this term.
Warner graduated fron Michi-
gan State Normal College in 1885,
and was awarded honorary de-
grees from the college and from
Michigan State University.
Malik .Irked
At Displays
LONDON - Soviet Ambassador
Jacob Malik hurried to the For-
eign Office last night nand com-
plained against anti-Communist
demonstrations on the eve of the
visit to Britain of the Soviet Un-
ion's Premier and Communist par-
ty chief.
Early yesterday morning an at-
tempt was made to set a fire out-
side the offices of Tass, the offi-
cial Russian news agency, and the
new $30,000 monument on the
grave of Karl Marx was defaced.
Newspapers were told by anony-
mous callers "We are only at the
beginning of our hate campaign."

The 12 Ouragans, a prototype
of the Mystere and said to be
capable of a top speed of 600 miles
anv hour, roared oveshead as a
battery of 155mm French artillery
passed the reviewing stand.
The Ouragans, mounting four
guns and' equipped with rocket
launchers, were received from
France some time ago. They fol-
lowed five formations of World
War II type Harvards, Spitfires,

ion and Maj. Gen. Moshe Dayan,
army chief of staff.
Military Display Curtailed
It was obvious to spectators
that the military display had been
curtailed because Israeli forces
were mostly engaged in manning
the frontiers.
Israel celebrated its indepen-
dence on the eve of U. N. Secre-
tary General Dag Hammarskjold's
arrival here on his Security Coun-
cil mission of checking Middle
East tension.
A new complication in Hamp-
marskjold's task arose when it was
disclosed at UN headquarters in
New York that Israel has placed
before him formal demand that
Egypt life her restrictions in Israel
shipping through the Suez Canal.
In a five-day visit to Cairo last
week Hammarskjold obtained un-
conditional pledges from both sides
to refrain from hostile acts against
each other except in self defense.'

The Stanley Quartet will per-
form at 8:30 p.m. today in Rack-

Members of the Quartet include
Professors Gilbert Ross, and Emil
Raab, violins; Oliver Edel, cello;
and Robert Courte, viola.
The group will play Mozart's
"Quartet in B flat, K. 458" and
Palmer's "Quartet No. 3." After
intermission, Beethovan's "Quartet
in E minor," Op. 59, No. 2" will be
heard.
The concert is open to the pub-
lic free of charge.

ISRAEL'S INDEPENDENCE DAY:
Parade Features
French Arms, Jets
TEL AVIV, Israel (AP)-French artillery and jet fighters were
paraded at Haifa yesterday in a show of strength on Israel's Inde-
pendence Day.
The air force put on display for the first time 12 Ouragan jet
fighters as part of Israel's eighth celebration as an independent
state.
The show of military might came as the country's leaders are
warning of the critical danger of a second round of war with the
Arab states.
No Appearance
But the more advanced French Mystere jet fighter did not make
its appearance. There was no confirmation of a report from Israeli
military sources that 12 Mysteres had been received.
These informants had said Sunday the Mysteres would make
their debut in yesterday's air show, and had indicated they would help

Winter Says
Capitalism
Losing Place
Socialism has become the domi-
nant social and economic system
in the world, according ,to Carl
Winter, a member of the National
Committee of the Communist Par-
ty in the United States.
"There has been a basic shift
between social systems of the
world and capitalism is losing its
once pre-eminent position to so-
cialism," Winter said in addressing
some 20 students at a meeting of
the Ann Arbor Labor Youth
League.
The success of the Russian
economy has put an end forever
to the question of whether social-
ism could or could not last, he de-
clared. "It will soon be apparent
to the people of the world that
socialism is a vastly superior sys-
tem to any other."
Demonstrating what he meant
by the shift in social systems,
Winter said that nearly half of
Europe and (Asia has broken with
capitalism, and one-third df the
human race has chosen socialism.
Countin* neutral peoples, he
added, the majority of the world
has turned its back on imperialism
and war.
This has meant the beginning
of a new era, he said, which pro-
vided the facus for discussion at
the recent 20th Party Congress
in the U.S.S.R. ;
Two Inj ured
In Accident
A traffic accident at the inter-
section of Packard Street and
Stadium Boulevard at 6:30 p.m.
yesterday resulted in injury to a
University graduate student and
his wife and total loss of their car.
Daniel A. Naymik and his wife
Anne, a secretary, were taken to
University hospital for emergency
treatment of cuts, bruises, and
possible fractures. They were re-
leased about 9:30 p.m.
Witnesses to the accident stated
that Naymil, driving a '51 Ford,
failed to stop at the intersection's
red light and ran into a tractor-
trailer driven by Albert L. Rood.

Damaging
To Country
Little Hope Seen
For New Legislation
WASHINGTON () - President
Eisenhower vetoed the farm bill
yesterday and told the American
people in a broadcast .last night:
"I had nochoice. .. It was a bad
bill."
His refusal to sign the farm
legislation passed by Congress
last week gave the Democrats a
prime issue for the "presidential
campaign this fall.
But the President, in an addres
prepared for a nationwidek radio
and television broadcast, said he
had tried to act "honestly, frankly
and regardless of political pres-
sure."
Additional Benefits Promised
As a substitute for the farm bill
now considered dead for this ses-
sion of Congress, Eisenhower
promised the farmers an addition-
al 600 million dollars in benefits
this year by raising government
price supports on the five basic
crops to "at least" 821/2 per cent
of parity and increasing the aup-
port price for mily used in manĀ°-
facturing.
He outlined this plan in his 6eto
message to Congress yesterday
noon.
Last night, in his radio-TV talk,
he said the farmers might get an
extra 500 million dollars this "
son if Congress would act prompt.
ly to give him a soil bank program.
The soil bank plan, under which
farmers would be paid for acreage
withdrawn from the production of
surplus crops, went down in the
vetoed bill.
The President said growers
could get almost immediate bene
fits from a soil bank If Congress
would approve the plan and
authorize the government to be-
gin making payments up to 50 per
cent after the farmer signs a con-
tract to withdraw cropland.
"If farmers generally partici-
pate in the soil banik program',
payments could add up to as
much as an additional 500 million
dollars to them this crop year,"
he said.
'Self-Defeating Measure'
In his earlier veto message to
the House, Eisenhower called the
farm bill a "self-defeating meas-
ure which "would do harm to'x
every agricultural region of hte
country and also to the Interests
of the consumers."
He hammered away at this
argument again in his broadcast
talk, directed mainly at "you farm
folks."
"It was a bad bill for the coun-
try," he said.
"In the months ahead it would
hurt more farners than it would
help. In the long run it would hurt
all farmers."
Eisenhower's principal objec-
tion to the legislation was its re-
turn to price supports at 90 per
cent of parity-supports under
which, he said, farm incomes
have declined every year but one
between 1947 and 1954.
Pre President condemned any
partisan approach to the farm
problem and said he would "al-
ways resist any attempt to make
the farmer and his problems a
political football."
New City High,
School Opens

Ann Arbor High School opened
Sunday as an estimated 8,000 per-
sons toured the new $7,000,000

Among the speakers at the dedi-

avoid huge lines forming outside
ticket booths at the Field house,"
Joanne declared.
Joanne mentioned several points
pertaining to tickets that she felt
should be known:
1. Each person attending the car-
nival at the field house must
have a ticket. A different tick-
et must be purchased for ad-
mission each evening.
2. Persons leaving the carnival
area will not be re-admitted
without a new ticket.
3. After one has entered the field
house, he may exchange money
for concession tickets, which
will be the only legal currency
for skill show, refreshment
booths, and carnival rides.
linsk i To Speak
Matteo Glinski, music editor of
"L'Osservatore Romeno," Vatican
daily newspaper, will speak at 4:15
p.m. today in Rackham assembly
hall. .
Based on Glinski's book, "The
Secret Life of Chopin," the subject
of his talk will be "Some New
Aspects of Chopin."

Commenting on the possible
future of the proposal, IHC presi-
dent Warrick said yesterday that
he "sees some hope through the
Board of Governors."
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis, Manager of
Service Enterprises Francis C.
Shiel, and Residence Halls Busi-
ness Manager Leonard A. Schaadt
were at yesterday's meeting to
answer the questions of council
members.
IHC members defeated a sub-
stitute motion by Bill Hanks, '56
BAd, before approving the final
resolution.
"I can't see as the original
proposal does' anything but pro-
test," Hanks said, referring to the
resolution finally passed.
He contended that the five
recommendations made by the
council last year were "pretty well
satisfied."
, Attempts by council members
to propose a student-faculty-ad-
ministration committee to examine
the long-range viewpoint of fin-
ancing the Residence Halls were
thwarted by adjournment of the
meeting.

World News Roundup
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-Several Democrats said yesterday farmers will
strike back in November at President Eisenhower, for vetoing the farm
bill.
However, Republican Chairman Leonard Hall said he expects the
veto to help rather than hurt, Republican chances.
Most Democrats had sharp words of denunciation, but a few said
Eisenhower did right. Most Republicans said the veto was proper,
but several said they wished Eisenhower had signed the bill.
* * *
SAN FRANCISCO-Sen. Estes Kefauver said yesterday that
President Eisenhower, by vetoing the farm bill, "will now take the
full blame for the callous attitude of his administration" toward
farmers' problems.
"This, of course, is precisely where the blame should have been
put all the time," he said in a statement.
