Eden Still Mum
About Frogman
aRussian Relations; Deplores Debate'
i Says Telling. Seeret Might Injure
LONDON M)-Prime Minister Anthony Eden angrily refused last
night to explain the mystery- of Britain's missing frogman. He hinted
that telling the secret might chill relations with Russia.
"In this business," Eden told Parliament, his face grave and his
voice deeply serious, "I do not rest only on the national interest.
"There is also a very important international interest."
Commons Packed
The House of Commons was packed and hushed. Sir Winston
Churchill, hunched in a front row seat, stared at his successor.
"I confess," said Eden, "that what I care is that the outcome of our
discussions with the Soviet leaders should, in truth prove to be, as I
have said-the beginning of the
u ss B s beginning."

Ann ce



With French
MOSCOW (P)-Premier Nikolai
Bulganin told the French yester-
day the Soviet Union understands
their troubles in North Africa and
believes a just and peaceful solu-
tion can be reached.
Bulganin made a declaration on
France's difficulties with national-
ist rebels in Algeria, and her set-
tlements with other nationalists
in Tunisia and Morocco, on the
eve of a visit to Moscow by Pre-
mier Guy Mollet and Foreign Min-
ister Christian Pineau.
Le Monde Answered
His statements were in written
answers to questions by the Paris
newspaper, Le Monde. They were
distrbiuted here by Tass, the So-
viet news agency.
"We sincerely welcomed the
settlement of the Tunisian and
Moroccan problems achieved by
negotiation," said Bulganin.
As to Algeria, where more than
300,000 troops are trying to put
down a rebellion, Bulganin said,
"we well munderstand its complex-
ity, but we are convinced that this
problem too can be ?solved by
peaceful means and that it will
find its solution."
Kicks Props
Bulganin thus gave a slight
kick to the props under the So-
viet's anticolonialism campaign, a
Russian policy which is of major
concern to the French in North
U President
Phi Kappa Phi
"Contributions made by friends,
students, and graduates have made
the University one of the highest
ranking institutions in the field of
scholarship," said University Pres-
ident Harlan H. Hatcher at the
Phi Kappa Phi banquet last night
in the Union.
r President Hatcher said that the
capacity of the nation to support
the people more fully than ever
before is evident. He pointed to
the state's investment of $28 mil-
lion for the University's general
budget plus over $8 million for
"I am pleased," declared Presi-
dent Hatcher, "that the state has
expressed so much confidence in
the University."
Phi Kappa Phi is a national
honorary society, founded in 1897,
which is open to students in any
department of study. It is com-
prised of the upper 10 per cent of

Safeguard Possibility
"I intend to safeguard that pos-
sibility at all costs. I believe that
that is the policy of the Soviet
leaders and it is for that reason
that I deplore this debate and will
say no more."
The frogman is officially listed
as "missing-presumed dead" in
the cold waters of Portsmouth
Harbor while diving near the crui-
ser that last month brought Soviet
Premiers Nikolai Bulganin and
party leader Nikita Khrushchev on
a visit to Britain.
Eden Regrets
' Eden earlier told the Soviets
that he regrets the incident, but
beyond saying that no minister of
the government was responsible for
it, he kept silent. The Conserva-
tives' leader told Commons yester-
day, "I have not one more word to
say than I announced on Wednes-
No Authorization
At that time, the Prime. Minis-
ter said Crabb was operating
"without authorization" in diving
into. Portsmouth Harbor. The
British Admiialty has said he was
engaged in diving tests.
Labor party chief Hugh Gaits-
kell, in demanding that the goy-
ernment explain the mystery, said
he did not want to endanger the
British secret service.
House Votes
Finance Bill
WASHINGTON tom)-The House
yesterday passed a bill appropri-
ating $1,983,512,568 for the Agri-
culture Department for the fiscal
year starting July 1, and set three
records in doing so.
It was the biggest appropriation
ever voted for the department, it
was passed in less than two hours,
and it was the first time in modern
history that no member even tried
to amend a farm money bill.
Passed by voice vote, the meas-
ure now goes to the Senate.
The size of the money bill was
due to inclusion of $929,287,178 for
restoration of capital impairment
of the Commodity. Credit Corp.,
which has been incurring losses on
price support and surplus disposal
programs. In past years, these,
losses were handled by the book-
keeping process of cancelling CCC
notes held by the Treasury.

Joint Chiefsf
Head Voices
A reernent
Radford Says We
Can Hold Position
WASHINGTON (M) - Secretary
of Defense Charles E. Wilson, in a
new pronouncement on air power,
said yesterday the United States
has a superiority over Russia and
he thinks it can be held.
The same opinion came from
Admiral Arthur W. Radford, chair-
man &3 the Joint Chiefs of Staff,
who told the Senate Foreign Rela-
tions Committee: "I believe we can
stay ahead of them."
Confident Statements z
Their statements, more confi-
dent in tone than some recent
testimony by U.S. air generals,
may be some reflection of what
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
had in mind when he informed his
news conference May 4 that- the
country would feel a lot better
about its air power position when
the full story was presented.
Both Sec. Wilson and Adm. Rad-
ford' testified before Washington
had heard the news of Russia's in-
tention to slash her armed forces
by 1,200,000 men. The Kremlin an-
nouncement came several hours
later. It said three Red air divis-
ions would be among those dis-
Concern Mounting
Concern has been mounting in
Congress that the Soviet Union
was outstripping the United States
in the struggle for sky mastery.
Several Pentagon chiefs have said
recently that Russia was "closing
the gap" in some phases of air
Sec. Wilson asked for a fresh
assessment when he appeared be-
fore the senators to support the
administration's $4,900,000,000 for-
eign aid bill for the fiscal year
beginning July 1.
Payments Due
Subscription payments for The
Daily are due now.
Failure to pay by May 15th will
result in withholding of credits.

Will Cut Military Strength
By More Than Million Men
Russia Calls on U.S., Western Powers
To Follow Example 'To Strengthen Peace'
MOSCOW (P)-The Soviet Union announced last night it would
cut its armed forces within a year by 1,100,000 men and use the
manpower in industry and agriculture.
A government statement said "other governments such as those
of the United States, Britain and France wishing to contribute to the
strengthening of peace, cannot but follow this example." It made
no reference to armed forces slashes by Western powers since World
War II.

The U.S.S.R. also reported it would disband three air divisions,
put .75 ships of the Soviet navy into mothballs and disband a number

The trouble with many of to-
day's businessmen who are in
management positions is that they
don't realize that the management
job is a communication job.

nance management problems study
course last night in the Michigan

successfully understands how his
employees feel and what they

He stated, "In a recent poll tak-
en in my company, it was found
that the percentage of agreement
between top and second level man-
agement as to what each should

51 per cent.
No Difference
It makes no difference if we
know what they're to do. They
must know." In summary, he com-
mented that all it takes is a simple,

a big, fancy one with slides, movies,
and "on the job training."
Gieseking Concert
To Close Series
Walter Gieseking, international-
1 irnon niann viruoson will nr-

also said it would reduce its mili-
tary budget, but gave no figure.
The statement, read to corre-
spondents at a Foreign Ministry
news conference, said:
"By undertaking tnese new re-
ductions the Soviet government is
striving to contribute to-the prac-
tical carrying out of the disarma-
ment program now undertconsid-
eration in the United Nations."
The armed forces cut, to be in
effect by May 1, 1957, involved 63
army divisions and 3 air divi-
sions, including more than 30,000
men now stationed in Communist
East Germany, and did not in-
clude the 640,000 the U.S.S.R. re-
ported demobilized last year, the
statement said.
Arms Cut
Leonid F. Ilyichev, the Foreign
Ministry press cllief, said he did
not know how many men would be
left in the Soviet armed forces af-
ter the cut is completed, nor would
he say how much of a percentage
cut would be made in the military
budget. There was no informa
tion, either, on what type of ships
would be put in mothballs or on
how much sea power would remain.
The statement said in part:
"The Soviet government would be
ready to consider the question of
a further reeduction in case the
United States, Britain and France
carry out a proportionate reduc-
tion in their armed forces and
Pressure Brought
The cut is bound to bring pres-
sure on the Western powers. It
could spark more opposition in
West Germany to the buildup of a
500,000-man West German army,
plus opposition in other countries
to burdensome military budgets.
An overriding reason for the
cut, however, could be the man-
power squeeze. The Kremlin has
announced its intention of catch-
ing up with- and outstripping
American industrial might as soon
as possible. The program is cal-
culated for about 10 to 15 years
but Russia badly needs manpower.
Not only did Stalin waste man-
power, but Soviet war losses were
huge-possibly costing more than
20 million persons. Most of these
were young people.

"This represents what we have ... come to expect from students."
President Hatcher compared the cementing of the time capsule
