U.S. Not Altering
Opinion of Soviet
Dulles Says Soviet Threat Present
'Despite Talk of Military Visits' .
WASHINGTON, (M)-Secretary of State John Foster Dulles dir-
ected his aides yesterday to advise friendly governments that the
United States has not altered its estimates of the Soviet threat de-
spite talk of exchanging high level military visits with the Russians.
Dulles left Washington shortly after noon for a 10-day vacation
on Duck Island, his Lake Ontario retreat near Canada. Just before
takeoff he told newsmen he does not consider "too significant" a
Russian invitation to some high level Air Force officers to visit
Moscow in late June.
He said he understood there are "quite a lot" of these invitations
to attend Soviet Aviation Day ceremonies on June 24 "floating
Saround the world." In London the

David Baad, '56, yesterday ac-
cepted University appointment as
Assistant to the Dean of Men
starting July 1.
Baad, outgoing Daily Manag-
ing Editor, will assume duties of
a general nature, "representative
of the areas of responsibility"
covered by the Dean's office.
'While serving under Dean Walt-

British government confirmed it
had received such a bid.
'Too Speculative'
But Dulles refused to comment
on the possibility the United States
Joint Chiefs of Staff might ever
be invited to inspect Soviet armed
forces. He said that was too spec-
ulative.
The whole subject came up for
review in his talks, with officials
before he left the State Depart-
ment.
The dominant view reported in
the top level diplomatic assess-
ment of the impact of an exchange
of visits was that it might have
some dangerously adverse effects.
on U.S.interests unless steps were
taken promptly to keep policy lines
clear with allied and friendly gov-
ernments.
Steps Should Be Taken
Dulles expressed the view that
these steps should be taken.
What the diplomatic policymak-
ers feared was that a flow of mili-
tary leaders between Washington
and Moscow would be misinter-
preted by allied and neutral na-
tions. Some of them might decide
,the U.S. government was ready
to become more friendly with the
Soviet Union while courselling
other nations not to do so.
On the Senate floor, Republican.
Leader William F. Knowland of
California took strong exception
to any talk of invitio Soviet lead-
ers Khrushchev and Bulganin to
visit this country. Some such talk
arose again in the wake of the
military exchange overtures.
Eastern Guest'
To Be Feted
By University
Indonesian president Dr. Suk-
arno will be given an honorary
Doctor of Civil Laws degree during
his visit to the University to-
morrow.
He is also scheduled to visit the
Phoenix Memorial" Laboratory on
North Campus where he will be
shown one of twelve uranium fuel
elements which will later be used
to produce radioactivity in the
Phoenix Projects Nuclear Reactor.
He will attend a luncheon in
his honor at the Union and re-
ceive the Civil Laws degree at a
special convocation in Clements
Library later in the afternoon.
The fuel elements arrived in Ann
Arbor yesterday from the Atomic
Energy Commision's Oak Ridge,

Committee
OK'S Social
Security Bill
Democrat Promises
Fight in Senate
On Two Provisions
WASHINGTON (P)--A Social Se-
curity bill tailored to fit adminis-
tratoin wishes was finally ap-
proved by the Senate Finance
Comm'ittee yesterday and sent to
the Senate floor.
Senator Russell B. Long (D-La)
served notice that he will wage
a floor fight to restore administra-
tion-opposed provisions to lower
the retirement age for all women
from 65 to 62, and to set up a
system of payments to totally dis-
abled persons starting at age 50.
Provisions Included
Both provisions were included in
the bill passed by the House last
year. The Senate committee re-
jected the disability payments
plan completely and limited the
lower retirement age for women
to widows only.
The committee also knocked out
a proposed tax increase to pay for
the added benefits. This would
amount to an additional 1 per
cent each for employers and em-
ployes on the first $4,200 of an-
nual earnings.
Extends Coverage
Principal effect of the Senate
committee bill,in addition to low-
ering the retirement age for wid-
ows, would be to extend coverage
to more than 200,000 more per-
sons, including lawyers and den-
tists.
Sen. Long promised a fight for
his amendment, rejected by the
committee, to increase payments
for all persons now on the public
assistance rolls. This would amount
to at least $5 a month more for
the 2/ million persons now re-
ceiving federal-state old age as-
sistance, as well as higher pay-
ments for the needy blind and dis-
abled.

swers to several questions con-
cerning possible visits to Russia

The action makes possible a continuous series of yearly Rose
Bowl games between the two conferences not requiring periodic
approval.
Big Ten faculty representatives made obvious their confidence
in the Pacific Coast Conference which has been suffering from a
wave of disciplinary action, leaving UCLA ineligible for bowl com-
- -petition for three years and the

ByRegents
The Regentsyesterday announc-
ed appointments to the faculties
of the College of Engineering, the
literary college and the business
Administration school.

of the College of Engineering. Mc-
Ilvanie holds two degrees from the
University of Minnesota, and has

and placement.
Charles Lipson was appointed
professor of mechanical engineer-
ing for three years. The 49-year-
old graduate of Muhlenberg Col-
lege and New York University has
been self-employed as an engineer
in Detroit and Ann Arbor since
1947. He previously was an engi-
neer for the Chrysler Corporation
and a teacher at Chrysler Insti-
tute.
- Pearson Appointed-
John R. Pearson was appointed
visiting professor of mechanical
engineering for 1956-57. A gradu-
ate of Brown University and the
Massachusetts Institute of Tech-
nology. Pearson has been at Rob-
erts College in Istanbul since 1941
and is now associate dean of engi-
neering and dead of faculties there.
Hans P. Liepman was appointed
associate professor of aeronautical
engineering for the year 1956-57.
He is presently director of the subp-
ersonic wind tunnel at Willow Run
Airport and has served as a guest
lecturer in the department of aero-
nautical engineering since 1949.
Mahinder Singn Uberoi was ap-
pointed associate professor of aero-
nautical engineering for 1956-57.
Uberoi is a citizen of India and has
received degrees from Punjab Uni-
versity, the California Institute of
Technology, and Johns Hopkins
University. Since 1953, Uberoi has
been associated with the Univer-
sity Engineering Research Insti-
tute where he is an associate re-
search engineer.
Mason Associate Professor
Donald R. Mason was appointed
associate professor of chemical

years. Mason is a graduate of the
University of Illinois and the Uni-
versity of Minnesota.
Chia-Shun Yih was appointed
associate professor of engineering

allurgical engineering since 1954,
and has been connected with the

1Tniversty of Washington for two.
When informed of the group's
decision, a member of the Uni-
versity Faculty Senate expressed
his disappointment and disap-
proval.
The Senate overwhelmingly ap-
proved renewal of the contract on
April 23. However, their support
called for the continuation of the
short term basis rather than the
open-end contract okayed by the
Big Ten.
Fear Over-Emphasis
Faculty members feared an over-
emphasis on post season games
which may give rise to further
outbreaks of violence such as that
occuring last fall during the Mich-
igan-Ohio State game.
Prof. Marvin Felheim, of the
English department, criticized the
action as a "venture that's much
too commercial for what I feel is
the purpose of inter-collegiate
athletics." He added that "inter-
collegiate athletics should be held
as such and for the benefit of the
student."
Round Robin Scheduled
Also approved by the Big Ten
policy-making representatives was
the establishment of a round-robin
football schedule under which each
conference team will play the other
nine plus one non-conference
game. According to the so-called
White Resolution governing new
conference legislation, the plan
must now receive the approval of
each school.
Due to present commitments,
the ten game schedule cannot go
into effect until 1961. However;
plans are being formulated
through which the number of con-
ference games will be increased
gradually to seven in 1959, eight
the following year and a full nine
thereafter.

Work Rights
Argument
Starts Fight
200 Workers Storm
Plant With Chains,
Pipes, Baseball Bats
FLINT (p}) - A jurisdictional
dispute among craft unions over
the right to install machinery in
an auto plant flared yesterday Into
a wild, head-cracking battle in
suburban Grand Blanc.
Eleven men were injured and
two of them were listed in a criti-.
cal condition at Flint hospitals.
Before order was restored, Gen..
esee County Sheriff Don H. Car-
michael put in an emergency call
for state troopers. They rushed
with riot guns to the Fisher Body
Division plant of General Motors
Corp..
'Troopers Guard Plant
Troopers aided sheriff's men in
guarding the entrances to the
sprawling plant.
The plant, which formerly turn-
ed out tanks for the Army, is
being converted to production p'f
automotive body parts.
The AFL craft unionists In-
volved in the fight are employe
of Darin and Armstrong Inc o
Detroit, general contractor, for
the conversion project. Members
of the United Auto Workers or
other Fisher employes were not
Involved.
20 Invade Plant
The brawl started when 200me
invaded a section of the plat
where machinery was being in-
stalled. They carried chains, pipes
and baseball bats. Witnesses said
they stormed through one section
of the plant and in a few min-
utes had cleared the place.
The invaders chased workers
outside into the parking lot. Some
workers fled in their cars, others
scaled tall wire fences to get away
from swinging chains and bats.
Police said many car were dam-
aged.
Trouble Brewing for Months
Carmichael said trouble among
the craftsmen, all identified with
the AFL and now also with the
AFL-CIO, has been brewing for
several months.
The sheriff said members of two
Flint craft locals - Millwrights
Local 1102 and the Plumbers
Steamfitters and Welders Local
370-have been feuding with the
Detroit riggers.
The Flint unionists walked off
the job more than a month ago,
accusing the Detroit riggers of
"goon tactics." They later return-
ed to work and trouble has been
brewing daily.
MSU Students
Arrested Here
F. L
For Larceny
Three Michigan State Univer-
sity students, out for a good time,
were arrested early yesterday
morning by Ann'Arbor police on
charges of larceny.
Soon after midnight, two patrol-
men spotted the car driven by the
students veering erratically along
Pontiac Rd. toward the outskirts
of the city. The officers said their

attention was especially attracted
to the car by a great deal of paper
flying out of the windows.
Upon stopping the car, the
source of the paper was found to
be a city waste receptacle which
the three had stolen. In addition,
police found a large sign which
had been taken from the front
of the Free Methodist Church.

LAYOFF WELCOMED:
Ann, Arbor Merchants
Enjoy Vacation Period

By BILL HANEY
You won't find campus mer-
chants wishing for the good old
days, anymore-at least not the
good old summer days.
Until three or four years ago
store owners dreaded the three-
month vacation when students,
their sole source of income, left
town. But now the proprietors
welcome the layoff, many for dif-
ferent reasons.
Book store managers, surpris-
ingly, appreciate the summer
slack-off more than anyone else
(except students).
"We work harder in June, July,
and August than any other time
of the year," one manager says.
"We actually have only eight
weeks to get everything organ-

"had a tough time making a liv-
ing "in the summer until four
years ago" now looks forward to
summer vacation as "the only time
of the year when business- gets
down to normal."
Most campus barbers seem so
eager to "get out and do some
fishing" they don't miss the stu-
dents very much.
A manager of a men's clothing
store which caters entirely to male
students says, "After they gradu-
ate there's nothing left to do but
get down the parchesi board, pack
a picnic lunch and take life easy."
A saleslady in a lingerie shop
recalls the old days "when a good
summer was when you almost
broke even."
This year her manager hopes

Began Co-ops
In Depression
By TED FRIEDMAN
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the sec-
ond of three articles surveying co-
operative housing at the University.)
It was the fall of 1934, the bot-
tom of the Depression, and a tall,
slender, rather studious freshman
was finding it difficult to stay en-
rolled at the University.
Those were the days when stu-
dents were actually starvingtwhile
going to school. They sometimes
arranged their schedules so that
they would attend classes every
other day and during the remain-
ing days stay in bed to conserve
energy.
Almost by chance one day, the
Freshman happened to meet a.
minister who needed someone to
assist him with odd chores around
the house. Wha't followed was the
start of 'a movement which has
