UAW Seeks Aid
To Ease Lay-Offs
Reuther Sees Alarming' Situation
In Auto, Farm Machine Industries
DETOIT W)-The United Auto Workers yesterday called on top
executives in the auto and farming equipment industries to join in
conferences to solve what the union termed "alarming" unemploy-
meat situations in both industries.
UAW President Walter P. Reuther said the union's International
Executive Board meeting in Detroit this week unanimously direct-
ed him to urge heads of the companies to join in labor-management
None of the firms had any immediate comment.
Reuther said the union was ot proposing collective bargai ing
conferences. He added, "whatever the causes of the difficulties into
which the industry has fallen, both

heavy moral obligation to cooper-
ate in finding a solution."
Reuther said latest government
figuresshowed layoffs in the auto
industry totaled around 123,000.
He added that union estimates
showed considerably more unem-
ployment in the industry.
He said there appeared to be no
immediate, prospect for the situ-
ation to improve.
"Obviously," he said, "the usual
spring pickup in sales has not ma-
terialized and evidently is not
going to materialize."
Citing unemployment in the'
farm equipment industry, Reuther
said: "According to government
figures,- the average monthly em-
ployment in the industry has de-
clined from 153,600 in the peak
postwar year of 1951 to 117,700 in
1955, a net decline in employment
of 35,900. Primary figures for 1956
do not indicate any recovery from
the 1955 average ..."
Bank Records
Investigations subcommittee dis-
closed yesterday it is exploring
the bank records of officials re-
ported to have done favors for
government contractors.
Chairman John L. McClellan (D-
Ark) told reporters the officials
will be called to testify when the
subcommittee resumes next week
its public hearings in a search for
evdience of graft in contracts for
the manufacture of arrmy uniforms.
He declined to name any of the
officials in advance of the hear-
ings, tentatively scheduled for
Robert F. Kennedy, chief coun-
sel, said the hearings will then
switch to a scrutiny of "how cer-
tain contractors were treated dif-
ferently than others" and to de-
mand an explanation from the
procurement officers who handled
those contracts.
Kennedy said the subcommittee
now will ask procurement officials
involved to spell out the details of
such deviations and why they con-
sented to them. He said the bank
records of some of of these officials
also will be used as a basis for
questioning them about their in-

Cobo Says
Yes; State
GOP Cheers
60,000 Voters
Sign Petitions
Special To The Daily
DETROIT - A year old draft
movement came to an end yester-
day as Mayor Albert E. Cobo fin-
ally announced his candidacy for
governor at the Republican State
Convention here.
Mayor Cobo said that not until
yesterday, when he received 60,000
petitions from Wayne county offi-
cials advocating his nomination,
did he finally decide he would run.
John D. Martin, former state
Auditor-General, had announced
Friday that Mayor Cobo had de-
cided to run and would make an
official statement yesterday.
Cheering Crowd
Speaking before a cheering crowd
of 1,600 delegates at Cass Techni-
cal High School, Cobo said, "I had
intended to retire from public of-
fice after 23 years of service unless
I received genuine, sincere and
whole-hearted support to remain.
I feel I have received the support
and will become a candidate for
governor when petitions have been
Mayor Cobo received a standing
ovation when he made his an-
nouncement while his opponent,
Donald S. Leonard sat solemn and
expressionless on the speakers
'Party Defeat'
Leonard, who was decidedly de-
feated in the 1954 gubernatorial
election, declared, "I do not feel
that my defeat during that election
was a personal repudiation; it was
a party defeat." He added, "if a
person has the qualifications and
program to offer, he should enter
the race no matter who is running
against him."
The unsuccessful 1954 nominee
pointed out the "dismay" felt by
many members of the party "at
the hesitancy displayed by some
people a few months ago."
This was obviously a cut at the
reluctance of Cobo and others
whom leaders had tried to per-
suade to enter the gubernatorial
race. It probably referred also to
Representatives Gerald Ford of
Grand Rapids and Alvin Bentley of
Owosso, both of whom have de-
cided to try again for Congress.
"I announced my candidacy
three months ago, I am a candi-
date today and will be a candidate
on June 19," he said. June 19 is
the deadline for filing nominating
He then invited Mayor Cobo to
run against him.
The former Detroit police com-
missioner was greeted by boos both
before and after his speech.

Party Head's
Death Brings
Korean Riot
SEOUL, South Korea (R.)-Gun-
fire erupted at the gates of Presi-
dent Syngman Rhee's palace yes-
terday as supporters of presiden-
tial candidate P. H. Shinicky
demonstrated wildly after his
death from a cerebral hemorrhage.
Eyewitnesses said 15 persons
were injured, one by a police bul-
let fired into the crowd. Two
hundred e i g h t y demonstrators
were reported jailed for question-
National Police Chief Kim Chang
Heung said five policemen were
injured and that he had reports
of three demonstrators hurt, one
by a bullet wound.
Shinicky, 61, a candidate of the
Democratic party, was Rhee's
strongest opponent.
When news of Shinicky's death
reached here, members of his par-
ty, second in strength to Rhee's
Liberal party, drove through the
streets with loudspeakers urging
the pople to meet the train re-
turning Shinicky's body.
Several thousand responded. The
demonstrators swarmed through
Ithe station, smashing train win-
dows, and then moved up Seoul's
main street toward the presiden-
tial palace.
A government source said the
Democratic party could not enter
a new candidate because the dead-
line for qualifying is past.
Neutral Spirit
'By -Summit'
Foreign Affairs subcommittee re-
ported yesterday that the Geneva
summit conference had "seriously
weakened" anti-Communist senti-
ment in the Middle East and
Southeast Asia.
It said the conference attended
by President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower and Russian leaders last
July helped promote a dangerous
"neutralism" and distrust of Am-
erica in those areas.
The feeling in many foreign
lands, the congressmen said, is that
it is "senseless for them to resist
Communists if the West is going
to accept the Communists into
respectable society as at Geneva."
The six-man bipartisai subcom-
mittee headed by Rep. C. J. Za-
blocki (D-Wis) reported unani-
mously on a trip last Oct. 11-
Dec. 15 which covered 26 countries
from Greece to Japan.
In their 213-page report, the
congressmen said they fund "im-
posing economic progress," grow-
ing political stability and ad-
vances in democracy in a number
of the nations since a similar sur-
vey two years ago.
But the report was also sharply
critical of what it termed United
States "delay and indecision"~ in
the face of the Communists' "de-
termined and concerted bi for the
mastery of the world."
The congressmen called for a
detailed restudy of U.S. policy
aimed at divorcing America from
any taint of European colonialism,
treating the Asians as equals,
thus making U.S. aid more effec-

each other's move in yesterday's match against Indiana. They
went on to win as Michigan defeated the Hoosiers, 8-1s
Netters Down Indiana
To Remain Undefeated

ru ---



The question in the Big Ten to-
day is whether anybody will be
able ,o beat Michigan's undefeat-
ed tennis squad this year.
The Wolverines, supposedly play-
ing against their roughest oppon-
ents of the year, humbled Indiana
yesterday 8-1 on the Varsity courts.
The victory extended the netters'
consecutive winning streak to 25,
and left them with a Big Ten
Record of 2-0.
Barry MacKay made quick work
of his first set as he defeated the
Hossiers' star sophomore, Mike
Field, 6-0. Then after going down
3-1 in the second set, MacKay took
five straight games to win 6-3.
Dick Potter, playing against an-
other sophomore, Bill Petrick, also
had trouble.in his second set after'
winning the first quite easily 6-1.
Potter had to come from behind
to take it, 6-4.
Mark Jaffe won easily over Cap-
tain Carl Dentice of Indiana by
scores of 6-0 and 6-2. Dentice,
who hadn't lost a match in two
years playing at number four
singles, was no match for Jaffe
in the number three singles spot.
John Harris, the steadily im-
proving sophomore, continued the
winning ways of his teammates
by whipping Elam Huddleston 6-1,

and 6-0. Harris has shown very
well after a poor start on the
southern tour.
Dale Jensen competing in the
number five singles position won
from Ken Dillman by identical
scores of 6-1 and 6-1.

Dulles Calls
For 10-year
Counter Plan
Council Chooses
Three Ministers
PARIS (A')-The Atlantic Alli-
ance yesterday agreed to a new
mobilization of money and hu-
man resources against Russia's bid
to win over neutral peoples of the
And in a communique early to-
day, the Alliance declared it has
"successfully deterred Soviet ag-
gression" and led the Kremlin to
adopt a policy of coexistence.
The Ministerial Council of
NATO underscored its determina-
tion to take the economic offensive
by appointing "three wise men"
from its ranks to work, out a prac-
tical program.
The communique, billed by dip-
lomats in advance as a "political
manifesto," was issued at the wind-
up of the two-day meeting.
DuIlles Asks Switch
The action came after a call by
United States Secretary of State
John Foster Dulles for a new 10-
year program to counter the Krem.
lin's switch in tactics.
The Atlantic Council promptly
approved Dulles' proposal for ap-
pointment of three foreign min-
isters to study plans submitted for
expanding NATO's economic and
political role.
The Council chose Lester Pear-
son, Canadian foreign minister;
Halvard Lange, Norwegian for-
eign minister, and Gaetano Mar-
tino, Italian foreign minister. No
chairman was designated.
'Butter and Ideas'
They will report back later this
year on steps for carrying out what
diplomats call a "butter and ideas"
"The three wise men," was the
name promptly given to the com-
mittee by Britain's Foreign Secre-
tary Selwyn Lloyd, who strongly
backed Dulles' proposal.
How Far To Go?
Nobody knows just how far the
NATO partners will be willing to
go toward coordinating political
and economic policies.
Pooling of economic aid pro-
grams and dovetailing foreign poli-
cies, it is said, would involve giv-
ing up some national independ-
ence in these fields. At the mom-
ent the foreign ministers are du-
bious about how much of this sort
of thing home governments and
public opinion will buy.

Andersen Describes Joint Judic Council

Mention of Joint Judiciary
Council brings to the mind of
many students a feeling similar to
that conveyed by blue books, Ann
Arbor weather and 55-minute lec-
Actually, the sentiment should
be the other way around, according
to Roger Andersen, '56E, chair-
man of Joint Judic. "Although the
Council can't help but bring mis-
ery into the life of some students,
its existance is intended to serve
and help them," he observed.
Joint Judic Council, a 10 mem-
ber board of students, serves as
the supreme court of the campus.
In addition to having original
judgement on major cases, it has
final decision on cases appealed
to it from lower judiciaries.

bring these people closer to an un-
derstanding of the probelms en-
countered by the University."
This "understanding" is intend-
ed to protect city residents as well
as the reputation of the students
and the University. What often
appear and, in fact, are minor
problems, grow into major offen-
sives which reap not only bad
publicity but physical and personal
Blanket Condemnation
In helping students to keep their
minor mistakes from growing,
Joint Judic often uses a blanket
condemnation of "conduct unbe-
coming a student," which can
cover a multitude of sins.
The Judic meets weekly in an
informal manner resembling more
of a roundtable discussion than a
court, which, Anderson points out,

fendants are then permitted to
question the Council about it.
The decision on a second offense
requires the approval of the Sub-
Committee on Discipline, a body
composed of administration and
faculty members.
Judicaries on campus have
evolved with the University and
have changed as its problems have
When the University was small,
rules were made and enforced by
Deans of the various schools. As
the school grew, these multiple
standards on regulations ran into
conflict with one another and the
administration came into the pic-
