.Arabs Disagree
On Cease-Fire
Bickering Begins as Hammarskj old
Prepares Report for UN Council
ROME (P)-Bickering broke out between Arab allies yesterday
over ease-fire pledges made to United Nations' Secretary General
Dag Hammarskj old.
This developed as Hammarskjold was in Rome completing a
report to the Security Council on his Middle East peace mission.
Hammarskjold leaves for New York by air today. Prospects are
that Security Council members will take a few days to study the
report of his 25-day mission and meet in about a week.
Only then will the world know the precise pledges made by
Israel on one side and Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon separately

two laws and forbade the police
to use "special procedures" in in-

the articles of the criminal code
on treason, terrorism and damage
of state property by sabotage.
Both laws were promulgated by
Stalin, one on Dec. 1, 1934. and
the other on Sept. 14, 1937. They
permitted the police to by-pass

On 'U' Capital Outlay Bill

The State Legislature will assemble in Lansing on May
on the University's $17,571,200 capital outlay bill.

Appropriation disputes over two projects have put the capital
outlay bill in the hands of a House-Senate conference committee.
When the Senate version of the bill was passed, it called for sums
of $180,000 and $500,000 to be spent on two structures: a School of
Music:building and a psychiatric research building. Both appropria-
tions were struck by the House.
The conference committee will present a compromise bill to the
Legislature on May 10.
Except for the conference committee, the Legislature is adjourned
for the summer. The May 10 meeting follows the Legislature's yearly
practice of convening shortly after'"

Says Staff's
Chotiner Aid
Not Unethical
WASHINGTON ()-President
Dwight D. Eisenhower said yester-
day there are no grounds for be-
lieving that Murray Chotiner's
contacts with the White House
violated the President's code of
ethics for dealing with people who
have friends in the government.
Chotineri s the Beverly Hills,
Calif., lawyer who managed Vice
President Richard M. Nixon's cam-
paign in 1952 and was a witness
yesterday at a Senate hearing into
charges of crookedness in contract-
ing for military uniforms.
Any Suggestions
During the course of his testi-
mony, Chotiner disclosed he got
help from the White House on two
occasions in connection with pri-
vate law cases which had nothing
to do with military uniforms.
President Eisenhower was asked
at his news conference whether he
had any suggestions for handling
people who have friends in gov-
ernment and deal with the gov-
The President replied he has
given two specific orders in this
regard and that they have been
repeated often.
No Arrogance
The first order, he said, was
that "any individual coming any-
where in this government is first
assured of courteous treatment. I
will not stand for arrogance on
the part of government officials."
Secondly, the President went on
emphatically, "if anyone ever
comes to any part of this govern-
ment and claiming some privilege
for even to as low as introduction
to an official he wants to meet
on the basis that he is part of my
family or of my friends, that he
has any connection with the White
House, he is to be thrown out in-
No Grounds
President Eisenhower then said
there were "absolutely no grounds
in these 'particular cases for be-
lieving that my two rules were
Without ever mentioning Cho-
tiner by name, he added:
"In no case did any connection
he had with the White House bene-
fit him one bit, and if it ever
does, if ever I-I can't believe
that anybody on my staff would
ever be guilty of an indiscretion.
"But: if ever anything came to
my attention of that kind, any
part of this government, that in-
dividual would be gone."
British Strike
LONDON ()- Automation has
touched off a major strike in the
British car industry, and there are
widespread fears more work halts
will take place before push-button
techniques are established in fa-
vorites here.
In Coventry, about 12,000 work-
ers of the Standard Motor Works
walked out to protest the com-
pany's plan to lay off more than
3,000 men for several months so

the plant may be converted to

LOS ANGELES-Adlai Steven-

dent Richard Nixon "a poisoner

He said: "I do not feel Mr. Nix-
on enjoys the admiration and con-
fidence of the country as he en-
joys the admiration and confi-
dence of the President."
Stevenson predicted that a
Nixon-led campaign would back-
fire on the Republicans this year.

Half of Request
From appropriations already
agreed upon by both houses, it ap-
pears that the University will get
slightly less than half of its 1956-
57 capital outlay request of $17,-
University Vice President and
Dean of Faculties Marvin L. Nie-
huss voiced satisfaction and com-
mended the Legislature for "doing
a good job."
Neihuss went on to say that "We
will have to go a little slower in our
expansion program. The Legis-
lature did try to give us what we
can spend during the next year."
Requests for a School of Educa-
tion structure and a Dental build-
ing were mentioned by Neihuss as
"two projects we especially wanted
and didn't get."
Large Requests Cut
Almost two-thirds was lopped
off both the $2,79.0,000 request for
an undergraduate library and the
$2,824,000 sought for a social
science and language building.
The University will get two-
thirds of its $3,000,000 request for
a medical science building, one-
half of what it asked for a $1,920,-
000 fluids engineering unit.
Encompassing new construction,
remodeling, and additions, the
capital outlay bill should be dis-
tinguished from the University's

bill, which has already passed the

South Africa
"The only way to eradicate Apar-
theid in South Africa is the way
that Eisenhower got rid of
Nazism," said Solomon Quaynor of
the Gold Coast last night at the
International Center.
Quaynor was one of the partici-
pants in an African-American dis-
cussion concerned with possible
solutions to the segregation prob-
lem in the Union of South Africa,
where 2 million whites dominate
and exploit 12 million natives.
Offering an alternative to solu-
tion by force Theodore Schwartz
of the Unitied States pointed; out
that industrialization in the Afri-
can country has led to new evalua-
tions of native labor. '.
This new evaluation, Schwartz
said, might result in a favorable
change through peaceful measures.
John Bilson of Africa suggested
that gradual improvement was
doubtful. The problem is getting
worse, he said, and recently the
native's right for self education,
one of his last remaining tools for
improvement, has been removed.
During the discussion many of
the students representing Africa
criticized the "passive" American
policy. Bilson remarked that al-
though public opinion is flagrantly
opposed to the existing South Afri-
can situation, the United States
actually supported the Strydom
government's policies through eco-
nomic intercourse.

World's Finest
WASHINGTON () - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower said yes-
terday that' when the "full pic-
ture" of .America's defense is laid
before the people, they will feel
better than they have about re-
ports of a lag in long-range jet
These bombers are just a part of
the picture, he told his news con-
ference, and "there is still a lot
of testimony to come forward."
For one thing, the former five-
star general said, no one has given
testimony yet on what the Navy
can do-"the most powerful navy
in the world."
"There is no navy that even ap-
proaches it in power, and it fea.
tures one thing-air power," Presi-
dent Eisenhower said.
"We have got a tremendous air
power, a mobile air power in the
sea forces . . . let's wait until we
get this picture sort of all before
He stressed, too, that, "We have
bases around the world, establish-
ed for the particular purpose of
using the medium bomber."
The President discussed ,the
bomber situation in reply.-toque-
tions based on Senate testimony
by Gen. Curtis LeMay, head of the
Strategic Air Command, that at
the present rate Russia may be
ahead in. strategically long-range
striking lower by 1958 or 1960.
AEC Tests
atomic weapon, described in terms
of a "nominal" 20,000 tons of. TNT,
was exploded early yesterday at
this mid-Pacific American prov-
ing grounds.
Fifteen newsmen and a score of
Civil Defense officials, aboard this
command ship witnessed the rat-
er mild spectacle from a distance
of 15 miles. They were the first
outside observers permitted in the
area since the two Bikini atomic
blasts of 1946.
In the current test series, plan-
ned to include 10 or more nuclear
devices, a big one is scheduled for
Tuesday, U.S. date. Officials have
said that it will be a large hydro-
gen bomb, but not the largest, and
that it will be the first American'
air-drop of an H-bomb.
Yesterday's comparatively small
blast, inaugurating Operation
Redwing, was touched off on the
surface of Runit Island, one of
the dots of land that make up
Eniwetok Atoll.
To observers peering through
high-density goggles it was quick-
ly over.

Baseball, Win
Special To The Daily
EVANSTON, Ill. - Michigan's
baseball team returned to the win-
ning column yesterday, as Don
Poloskey recovered from a shaky
start\ to allow Northwestern only
six hits and lead the Wolverines
to a 3-2 victory here.
Michigan wasted no time in col-
lecting the first of its runs, as
leadoff man Moby Benedict slap-
ped Wildcat pitcher Dale Pienta's
first good pitch for a home *run.
Pienta immediately recovered
and set the next three batters
down in order.
Northwestern came fighting back
in their half of the first inning.
Ron Smith drew a walk leading off
and Jim Asher and Ed Broeker
followed with fielder's choices.
With Broeker on first and two out,
Bruce Gordon singled, sending the
runner to third.
When Gene Snider committed a
passed ball, Broeker scampered in
with the tying run. Poloskey ended
the uprising by fanning catcher
Chuck Lindstrom.-
Pienta set down the Wolverines
in the second stanza, allowing only
one hit, 'but Poloskey did not fare
as well. Brad Splinter led off with
a single, followed by an infield cut
and Bob Leitzow's fielder's choice.
Pienta and Smith then rapped
singles, scoring Leitzow, but Asher
flied out to end the inning.
