Molotov Confesses
Ideological Error
Criticizes Self for Feb. 8 Speech;
Effect of Mistake Not Yet Clear
MOSCOW (t)-Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov confessed in the
magazine "Communist" yesterday he was in ideological error in a
speech Feb. 8. He said the slip was theoretically and politically
dangerous to the Soviet Union.
In brief he wrote that he erroneously referred to the Soviet
Union as a nation "where the foundations of a socialist society have
already been built," when he should have said its socialist society is
already built and the U.S.S.R. is ready to progress to communism.
The 65-year-old diplomat, long one of the Communist Party's top
theorists, cited decisions of the party as early as 1932 to, pinpoint
his error and support his self-

Cadets' Chances, Maentz Sees Action
Associate Sorts Editor
Everything must come, to an end ... the string ran out on Red
Blaik and his Army Cadets yesterday afternoon.
A sun-drenched crowd of 97,239 roared its approval as Michigan
and its secret weapon, halfback Terry Barr, whipped the once proud
Black Knights, 26-2.

Faure Wins
Policy vote
De Panafieu Qits
After Rabat Riots
By The Associated Press
Premier Edgar Faure early today
won by 470-140 the first in a series
of test votes on his Moroccan
Faure seemed to be in position
to get a comfortable majority from
the National Assembly in support
of his program.
In his first vote, the Assembly
refused to give first consideration
to a Communist resolution. It
snowed under the proposal 5-1.
The deputies then voted 360-205
to base their discussion on a So-
cialist resolution.
Proposed Approval
This resolution proposed ap-
proval of the principal points of
the government's program, but
expressed regret "that the govern-
ment, by its hesitations and its
we'aknesses, has comprised this
Sources favorable to the gov-
ernment said last night Faure
r seemed to have regained strength
afterseveral hours of hard poli-
tical bargaining.
There still had been no final
announcement from the Socialists,
the biggest single party in the
Assembly. They control 105 of the
Assembly's 627 seats.
Socialists May Abstain
The Socialists are outside the
government coalition, but have
talked of abstaining. A Socialist
abstention seemed necessary to let
Faure squeeze by.
Faure warned the Assembly that
France would lose prestige in
North Africa and the world unless
the deputies chose a positive policy
for the terrorist-ridden protector-
Riot in Rabat
Meanwhile, in Rabat, a riotous
demonstration by 600' die-hard

chief civil affairs officer. He was

Effect Not Yet Clear
What effect this public confes-
sion of mistakes would have on
Molotov's future career was not
clear to anyone outside top party
circles. Whether it would affect
his going to Geneva for the Big
Four foreign minister's conference
later this month was also shrouded
in mystery.
However, it should be noted
self-criticism is highly esteemed
in Communist circles.
Molotov, who for more than 40
years of his 65 years has been one
of the party's top theoreticians-
he was pre-revolutionary editor of
Pravda-said he had mistakenly
listed the Soviet Union as one of
the countries "where the founda-
tion f Socialist society already
Political Danger Explained
"The political danger in this
formula," Molotov wrote, "lies in
the fact that it mixes up ideologi-
cal questions and contradicts de-
cisions of the party on the ques-
tion of building a Socialist society
in the U.S.S.R. It places in doubt
the existence of an already built
Socialist society in our country."
Molotov's speech, delivered the
same day that Premier Georgi
Malenokv resigned after confes-
sions of guilt, dealt mostly with
foreign affairs. In it he boasted
the Soviet Union was ahead of
the United States in the produc
tion of hydrogen bombs and
touched on most other world prob-
lems. Consequently, this particu-
lar section of his speech went un-
noticed by Western observers and
apparently it took a long time for
his ideological conferees to wake
up to it.
Molotov's confession was in the
form of a letter to the editorial
board of "Communist."
Dated Sept. 16
The letter was dated Sept. 16,
which meant the foreign minister
wrote it after the conclusion of
negotiations with West German
Chancellor Konrad Adenauer and
just before his departure for the
United Nations General Assembly
in New York.
He is now back in Moscow.

Truman played it coy yesterday
in discussing possible candidates

The former President told a

said, for him to say at this time

Brucker Calls Response
To Reserve Plan 'Poor'




Response to the new military
reserve program has been "very,
very poor," Secretary of the Army
Wilber M. Brucker, '16L, said yes-
The former Michigan governor,
attending "a game I can't lose,'
attributed the low enlistment rate
to the non-compulsory feature and
newness of the reserve program.
"It needs time to be digested,
but is a very much better deal for
young men than the draft," he
said, emphasizing that the six-
month active training period need
not seriously interfere with school-
In case of war, the regular ar-
my would be called into action
first, then the national guard un-
its and then the reserves, accord-
ing to the secretary, who is a vet-
eran of all three groups.
Impending Slashes?
Sec. Brucker described recent
rumors of impending slashes in the
defense department's budget as
"more gossip than truth."
"There's always steady pressure
from the budget bureau and the
treasury department," he continu-
ed, l "and we take every measure
we can short of cutting national
security. But there's no figure
they give us and say-'this is it.' "
Between glances at the action
on the field, Sec. Brucker observed
"the American economy can only
stand so much.
"We can't let the budget get
out of hand. It's so easy," he
added, to start new projects and
let the old ones keep going.
Under law the Army's minimum
strength is 1,027,000 men, he said.
Force levels are coming down to
and will probably "stabilize at that
figure. We're counting very heav-

ily on the new reserve force, try-
ing to build it up to a strength of
1,692.000 men."
The Army's strength was "af-
fected" by recent cuts of 240,000
men, the secretary conceded. "but
not seriously." The cuts mostly
affected the "supporting forces,
the housekeeping of the Army,
which is 40 perncent of the whole
"There are certain things we
still can do-cut a million here, a
million there."
The Army is "geared up for'
brushfire war," Sec. Brucker said,
whereas "no plans had been made
at the time of Korea. Now we're
trained for that sort of thing."
In any future war "you'd ex-
pect to have tactical atomic
weapons and you might even em-
ploy them."
Remaining Clashes?
As to whether the secretary's
office will have more pleasant re-
lations with congressional com-
mittees than it did under Robert
Stevens, "that." Sec. Brucker said,
"remains to be seen."
Unlike 'the secretary, General
Maxwell Taylor, Army Chief of
Staff, came to the game with un-
mixed loyalties and left with un-
mixed emotions.
"The Michigan team is fast and
effective," he commented at the
Recent budget cuts? "I'm liv-
ing with them," Gen. Taylor com-
mented. "It's a decision that's
been made."
Future cuts? "The Secretary of
Defense has said there's nothing
to those reports. I never make
any statement on hypotheses."
Reluctant to talk further, Gen.
Taylor explained: "I came here
for a vacation."

Ike Spirited -

Nixon conferred with ailing Presi-
dent Eisenhower yesterday and de-
clared afterwards that the chief
executive's "recovery has been sat-
He said there was no discussion
whatever of politics.
The vice-president told report-
ers he gave Eisenhower a report
on how the government had been
operating*in his absence and said
that there is "time to make a
complete recovery" and "iot rush

Nixon said he reported that dur-
ing the past two weeks no action
has been taken that would not
have been taken had the President
been on hand and that govern-
ment operations are going in the
same manner as if the chief ex-
ecutive had been present.
Ike Should be Gratified
He told the President, further-
more, he said, that he would have
been gratified by the performance
of the men Eisenhower has sel-
ected for his official family.
The first question fired at Nixon
at a news conference at the Def-
ver White House was this:
"Did the' President in any way,
directly or indirectly, indicate to
you whether he would run for the
presidency again?"
"There was no discussion of the
future so far as political problems
are concerned," Nixon replied.
1 Nixon Surprised
Nixon was asked how the Presi-
dent looked.
"Well, frankly," he said, "I was
surprised to see how well he look-
ed. I had heard I'd probably be
very pleased and I certainly was."

quarter, then thrilled the sell-out
crowd with an electrifying 82-yard
punt return in the next period.
Victory May Be Costly
The long awaited victory, how-
ever, may turn out very costly.
Ron Kramer, Michigan's highly
heralded end was injured in the
middle of the second quarter and
did not appear again. Kramer col-
lapsed half-way through the tun-
nel, was revived in the locker
room, and then rushed to Univer-
sity hospital in an ambulance.
At first, it was feared that Kra-
mer had two fractured ribs. But
after an extensive examination it
was revealed that he had only a
bruised chest. Kramer's condition
was reported as "apparently good"
but he will remain in the hospital
for two or three days for observa-
tion. At time of publication it was
too early to tell when the Wolver -
ine star will return to action.
W i t h or without Kramer,
though, it didn't matter yester-
day. The Wolverines also piled
up two scores in the second half,.
both coming in the final quarter.
Ed Shannon smashed through the
center of the Army line to score
and Jim Pace skirted right end
for the final Maize and Blue tally.
Cadets Hadn't a Chance
The.Cadets, ranked sixth nation-
ally a week ago, never had a
chance. Army's vaunted offense,
which had accounted for 116
points in victories over Furman
and Penn State, was bottled up
all day. * Blaik's squad, unable to
penetrate into Michigan territory
until the final period, averted a
shutout in' the waning seconds of
the game. With ten seconds re-
maining, John Greenwood was

Goes Wrong
For Cadets
Michigan Elated,
Army Deflated
Daily City Editor
It was a black day for the Blac
Army saw its invincibility, usu-
ally established merely by putting
in an appearance, dismantled b9-
fore some 98,000 screaming fans
yesterday afternoon.
The 26-2 score, someone remark-
ed after the game, seemed some-
how even more humiliating than
a shut-out.
Nothing Right for Military
From the time the train carrying
600 senior cadets into Ann Arbor
arrived an hour late until the
final gun punctuated Michigan's
first victory over the cadets in
history, nothing went right for
the military.
Even half-time offered no re-
spite, as Secretary of the Army
Wilber M. Brucker and top mili-
tary brass, while attempting to
cross the field, found themselves
tangling with the University's
Marching Band.
Though there were nio casual-
ties, Army dignity had been ruf-
fled, and even Michigan fans were
grumbling about the band's auda-
city. As it was learned later, the
military contingent had been ex-
pected to go via the end zone and
the band was supposed to wait for
it to complete the trip.
Revelli Not Informed
Prof. William D. Revelli, direc.
tor of University Bands, said af-
terwards he had not been inform-
ed of the trip across the field.
During the game, Army couldn't"
even penetrate Michigan territory
until the final period. Until then,
fans tensed forward every time
the cadets neared the mid-field
stripe, and sat back when they
fumbled or were pushed back."
That was when they weren't
standing. There was plenty to
stand for. Wolverine halfbacks
scampered down the field with the
pigskin and ends hugged in passes,
even if only to have the play call-
ed back on account of a penalty,.
They Had to Stand
The cadets were standing, too.
But they were standing because
they had to stand, out of defer-
ence to tradition. So they stood,
and watched their team unable
to gain even on an official's error -
that would have given Army six
yards less to go for a first down
if Ron Kramer hadn't noticed the
mistak-: and thwarted the cadets
on that one. too.
Though Army's misery was Mi-
chigan's joy, the shouting and
cheering, especially 'after Terry

82-yard punt return, was suspend-
ed a bit by the one event that
