Collapses at Mid-point of Speech
In Mock Democratic Convention
LEXINGTON, Va. (W)-Senator Alben W. Barkley (D.-Ky.) col-
lapsed and died yesterday while delivering the keynote address at the
Washington and Lee University mock Democratic convention.
The 79-year-old former vice president was pronounced dead only
10 minutes after his collapse at the mid-point of his speech.
He had just finished the sentence: "I would rather be a servant
in the house of the Lord than sit in the seat of the might" when he
was stricken.

Four University students, on
a pledge trip to Iowa City, Iowa
for a "Scavanger-trip Hunt"
were too successful.
Arrested by the police, they
told the judge that, among
other things, they were sup-
posed to bring back a signature
of University of Iowa President
Virgil M. Hancher and a ticket
from the police.
Officers cooperated by giving
them a total of five tickets. The
enthusiastic pledges were ac-
cused of taking six highway
signs marking the city limits
and two street signs. One was
also accused with running a
stop sign. Total fines were $230.

of our economy to share more

Farley told the business men
that President Eisenhower must
bear part of the responsibility for
the fact Congress has not acted
on many of the government reor-

Herbert Hoover.
Farley noted that President Eis-

that Justice Harlan, in the ma-

of a "good cause" affidavit by the
government is necessary to main-

Zucca Suit Dismissed
The ruling came i nthe case of
Ettore Zucca, who was naturalized
in U.S. District Court in 1944. In
1954, the U.S. attorney there filed
suit to revoke Zucca's citizenship
on the ground he had not reported
membership in the Communist
party and affiliated organizations
from 1925 to 1947.
The suit was dismissed in Dis-
trict Court when the U.S. attor-
ney failed to file an affidavit of
"good cause."
In another action yesterday, thea
court affirmed 6-3 a ruling by the
U.S. Court of Appeals in San Fran-
cisco that federal agents who lis-
ten in on illegal radio broadcasts
may use evidence obtained from
them before grand juries and in
trials. The court's order noted that
Justices Black/ Frankfurter and 1
Douglas dissented.1

WASHINGTON (M)-President Dwight D. Eisephower advised
Congress yesterday that tampering with his foreign aid program would
"gravely endanger" national security and upset foreign policy.
President Eisenhower's views were relayed to the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee by Secretary of State John F. Dulles, along
with Dulles' own recommendations to keep the program rolling as part
of "a national insurance policy" against "a serious and evident threat
from the Soviet Communists."
The doubleheader appeal immediately ran into needling from
Senator William Fulbright (D-Ark.) and a threat of a sizable cut.

The senator was removed from
the gymnasium, where the mock
convention was being held, to
Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hos-
pital but was pronounced dead up-
on arrival.
The mock convention at once
recessed until Monday night.
Barkley had been elected -tem-
porary chairman of the conven-
tion, held by the students
each presidential election year to
"choose" a candidate for the par-
ty that is out of power, and had
been presented to the students by
Gov. Stanley.
Then came a stirring speech by
the fighting, elderly senator.
Everyone in the hall seemed to
perk up and Sen. Barkley was
given a rousing round of applause
which stirred up new enthusiasm
and confidence for President Tru-
man's acceptance speech.
Sen. Barkley was first married
in 1903, to Miss Dorothy Brower
of Paducah. She died in 1947 after
a long illness.

Sen. Fulbright told Dulles he
can't vote for a 40 per cent hike
in the foreign aid authorization in
the face of what he said is constant
propaganda from the Republicans
about "peace and prosperity."
"If we have peace," Sen. Ful-
bright said, "then there is no ex-
cuse for increasing this program
by 40 per cent. If we don't have
peace, then you ought to stop tell-
ing us we do have peace."
Sec. Dulles said the senator could
tell his constituents:
Carry On
"The United States is at peace.
We are at peace in large part be-
cause we have this program, and
therefore we should carry this pro-
gran on."
Besides, he said, while a 40 per
cent increase-to nearly $4,700,-
000,000-is proposed for authorized
spending, actual spending in the
upcoming fiscal year would be at
about the same level as this year-
around four billion dollars.
Can't Withdraw
"It would indeed be ironic," Sec.
Dulles said in a formal statement
to the committee, "if, now that the
Soviet has begun giving aid to its
allies in terms of hundreds of
millions, the United States should
withdraw from that program which
it invented and let the Soviet take
over the field."

WASHINGTON P) - A similar

something extra special. They've

Six Delegates Each
Each party will pick six dele-

The main argument is among the
Democrats, who have rival slates
dedicated to the presidential hopes

But overriding the election itself
is tne thought that maybe this is
a dress rehearsal for the real

Senate Report
DETROIT ({P)-A recent Senate
"big business" subcommittee re-
port on General Motors was de-
nounced by GM yesterday as
"wholly unwarranted," and based
on opinion and hearsay rather
than on documented fact.
The statement was GM's reac-
tion to the findings in a staff re-
port of the subcommittee headed
by Senator John O'Mahoney (D-
Wyo). The committee report
questioned whether GM should be
allowed to expand freely into any
new fields; it suggested GM should
cut car prices and proposed a fur-
ther study by Congress and the
Justice Department to determine
if action is called for to curb what
the report called a trend toward
monopoly by General Motors.
General Motors charged the re-
port "reflects the same emotional,
rather than factual, approach to
the 'case study' of General Motors
that prevaded ,the hearings them-

is a manifestation of moral im-
maturity," he asserted.
He said that philosophers are
partly to blame for the movement,
since , John Dewey's iragmatic
philosophy helped to establish
these educational ideas.

the college of arts and sciences at

Alabama Daean Decries
Trend in Education
At the annual Phi Beta Kappa banquet in the Union yesterday,
Prof. Martin TenHoor of the University of Alabama attacked what
he called the "Worship of the Contemporaneous."
Introduced by former Phi Beta Kappa president, Prof. William
Friankena, of the philosophy department, Prof. TenHoor charged that
"progressive" educators "refuse to learn from the past."
It began when the classical languages such as Latin were dropped
from the regular cirriculum. Then, "encouraged by their own logic
and taste," said TenHoor, "neither of which they questioned, the
educators went on to dismiss thea

Tour of Britain
Called Significant
MOSCOW R) - Soviet Russia's
leaders returned from Britain to
a triumphal flowers-and-kisses re-
ception in Moscow yesterday, and
promptly bid for improved rela-
tions witi the United States.
With Premier Nikolai Bulganin
standing by, Communist boss Ni-
kita Khrushchev told 10,000 cheer-
ing Russians "It seems to us that
the U.S.A. is already beginning to
show desirable signs of moving on
the road to cooperation."
The overture appeared to indi-

Dwight D. Eisenhower on world
'Political Significance'
Bulganin said their 10-day tour
of Britain, in which they negotiat-
ed with Prime Minister Anthony
Eden, "was of great political and
practical significance in Anglo-
Soviet relations and the whole in-
ternational life." The one sour
point both emphasized was the at-
titude of the British Socialist La-
bor party, which they accused of
following "reactionary anti-Soviet

Editors in Washington April 21,
Close Ties
"We cannot agree with many
things he said because they did
not help good relations," Khrus-
chev said, but he praised President
Eisenhower's words on a possibili-
ty of closer ties between Moscow
and the West.
President Eisenhower had chal-
lenged the Russians to prove their
avowal of peaceful intentions by
abolishing "the wrongs of Stalin,"
in which he mentioned the con-
tinued division of Germany and
Korea. But he said a Soviet gov-
ernment genuinely devoted to the
legitimate interests of the Russian
nation "can have friendly relations
with the United States and the
free world for the asking."
Cities Petition
For Branches
Citizen's groups of several Mich-
igan cities have requested or peti-
tioned the University to estab-
lish branch schools in their areas.
No final action has been taken
with any of these requests, accord-
ing to University Vice-President
and Dean of Faculties Marvin L.
Niehuss, although some requests
have been considered.
Both Grand Rapids and Flint
have asked for medical schools to
be established in their areas, and
these requTests are presently being
studied by a committee headed by
Dean of the medical school Albert
C. Furstenberg.
Grand Rapids has also asked for
the establishment of a four-year
college there, and Traverse City
has petitioned the University to
set up a branch in its area,
Although these requests are be-
ing studied, according to Vice-
President Niehuss, no recommen-
dations have been made and noth-
ing has reached the stage where

it could go to the Regents.
