Londoners Cheer, Boo; Soviets
Call Themselves 'Good Neighbors'
LONDON (AP)-Soviet Russia's leaders, Nikolai Bulganin and
Nikita Khrushchev, came to Britain yesterday proclaiming them-
selves good neighbors.
British crowds greeted them with thin cheers, some boos and
spoofing curiosity.
"Welcome Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier" said a placard
hoisted by a group of youth. That got a big hand.
Officially, things were diplomatically correct.
Prime Minister Anthony Eden and Foreign Secretary Selwyn
Lloyd dined with Bulganin and Khrushchev yesterday at Claridges, the
~luxury fhotel where the Russians

GC Starts
Third Term;
Plans Laid
'Must Improve,'
Declares Adams
"Student Government Council is
now faced with a 'produce, improve
yourself' command and can no
longer rely on the 'we're just get-
ting started' crutch," Council Pres-
ident Bill Adams, '57 BAd, warned
at last night's SGC meeting.
Presenting his prospectus at the
initial meeting of the third SGC
term, Adams said, "Coordination
and follow-through must be a
part of everything we do.
Adams commented on the Uni-
versity-wide Counseling Study
Committee_ which held its first
meeting Tuesday and 'reminded
the Council that it should also
take a more active interest in
"the whole academic sphere" dur-
ing the coming term.
"Phrases like 'honor system' and
'academic freedom' should become
actions," he advised. He also sug-
gested studies and recommenda-
tions in such areas as the lecture
ban, curriculum and increasing en-

Later In the meeting during
member's time, Daily Managing
Editor Dave Baad, '56, announced
his intention to move next week
that SGC form-a student-faculty-
administration committee to look
into the area covered by the Lec-
ture Committee, which has the
power to ban speakers from ap-
pearing on campus.
Baad noted, "It is time for a
serious examination of this whole
area. Many individuals at the Uni-
versity have recently expressed
concern in favor of alternations in
the present lecture-ban policy."
The newly-elected President also
called for a program which would
enable "adequate utilization of the
University's important foreign stu-
aent segment."
"In 'short," .Adams concluded,
"SGC may and should discuss any-
thing if it concerns students, their
well-being, their rights and their

There they beganminformal talks
on East-West issues. Official con-

Prime Minister Eden, a diplo-
mat from way back, was correct
and elegant' as he met Bulganin,
the goateed Soviet premier; and
roly-poly Khrushchev, the Com-
munist party boss, at London's
smoke-blackened Victoria station.
He voiced a desire for serious
talks with the Russians on inter-
national problems.
Bulganin, beaming broadly, re-
plied through an interpreter. He
extended greetings and. declared
"the Soviet government seeks to
have friendly relations with Brit-
ain as well as the United States,
France and other countries."
Take London Tour
Later, Bulganin and Khrushchev
took the "mile run" tour around
London's traditional sights.
Police motorcycle outriders pre-
ceded them. Their every move
took place inside a police security
net described as the greatest in
British peacetime history. The
police arrested four persons, in-
cluding a French journalist, on
minor charges.
During their 10-day visit, the
two Russians, among other things,
will see British atomic installa-
tions. They also will take tea with

ers to Britain at the time of the

The British crowd reaction to
their arrival was a high-spirited
carnival atmosphere at some
places, but the genefal attitude
seems to be one of curiosity with
the sporting arena razzberry as
an undertone.
Jeering mingled with cheering
at Victoria Station.

Hits News
venson accused the Eisenhower
administration yesterday of what
he called "needless suppression of
public information."
"And this manipulation,'' Stev-
enson said, "is revealed as having
been in an attempt to cover up
some administration blunder or to
put a good face on a bad situation
for partisan political advantage."
"The reason for this is not just
the concern of the present admin-
istration about the security of the
country, but concern about the
security of the political party now
in office," the Democratic presi-
dential candidate said.
Stevenson, lobking fit and tan
after a four-day rest in Southern
Pines, N.C., made the statement
in a luncheon address before a
large gathering of newsmen and
guests at the Pittsburgh Press
Club, the first of several speaking
engagements in Pennsylvania.

Whip Irish
In 5-2 Win
Big First Inning
Stops Notre Dame
A flurry of first inning hits
producing three runs plus excellent
pitching sparked Michigan to a 5-2
victory over Notre Dame in yester-
day's 35 degree weather at Ferry
The few fans who did sit through
the cold saw one of Michigan's
best games as far as pitching goes.
Hurlers Bill Thurston and Don
Poloskey, who split up the game,
had the Notre Dame hitters under
control throughout the contest.
The Irish got only five scattered
hits and two unearned runs.
Excellent Control
' Thurston, who worked the first
five innings and received credit for
the win, showed excellent control
and deception. He walked one
man and only once was he hit
hard, a double over the left field-
er's head in the second inning.
Although he struck no one out, he
was almost always ahead of every
batter, making them wary at the
Poloskey, pitching the last four
frames, had an excellent sharp-
breaking curve which was contin-
ually finding the. corners of the
plate. After allowing two hits at
the start of his stint, Poloskey bore
down for the remainder 7f the
game and the Irish got no more.
Michigan jumped off to an early
lead in the first inning, and due
to sharp defense and the fine
mound work, were never caught.'
Moby Benedict led off the inning
with a walk. Bruce Fox then slam-
med a double down the left field
line, sending Benedict to third.
Freak Triple
Howie Tommelein continued the
hitting with a freak triple which
bounded over the left fielder's head
and rolled to the fence in deep left
center field. This drove in two
After Ken Tippery and Steve
Boros had popped out, Notre
Dame'd pitcher, Tom Bujnowski,
walked Al Sigman on four straight
pitches. Bob Sealby then proceed-
ed to single to right driving in
Tommelein and sending Sigman to
second. Gene Snider grounded out
to end theuinning and the scoring
at three runs.
, Notre Dame came back with a
run in the second inning on an
'error by Fox and a long double.
They scored again in the sixth in
practically the same fashion. Bene-
dict muffed a grounder off the bat
of Bujnowski, and two successive
singles sent the runner home.

President Eisenhower sent the
farm bill back to the House with-
out his signature Monday, declar-
ing "it would do harm to ev

and also to the interests of the
consumers." He objected particu-
larly to its provisions for high,
rigid price supports for basic crops.
A total of 189. Democrats and
