If the future of West German
democracy and Western European
security are to be assured, a strong

the extent that succession to the
position of Chancellor is uncer-

stature equal to Adenauer exists,
and it must be remembered that
"a man of his age cannot go on
Prof. N. Marbury Efimenco, also
of the political science depart-
ment, commented in similar fash-
ion, saying that Adenauer's stub-
borness, which may be his source
of strength, had caused him to put
aside as unnecessary the training
of a successor. Prof. Efimenco
went on to say that with no re-

a "serious development in the

"There is more applause at the
Met than in Milano."
This is Zinka Milanov's evalua-
tion of America's increasing inter-
est in opera.
Mme. Milanov, appearing in the
first Choral Union concert yes-
terday, believes that the Ameri-
can audience is fast catching up
with its European counterpart in
the realm of musical tastes.
She finds it difficult to say
what part opera plays in the musi-
cal lives of Americans. "Unfor-
tunately, not every place in the
United States knows and loves
opera; there are just a few places
like New York, Chicago and San
Francisco where the audiences area
big-the rest of the people can-
not hear it," she added.
However, Mme. Milanov, long
a favorite at the Met, conceded
that records and radio have done
much to bring fine music to all

UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (.2) -
The Soviet Union yesterday condi-
tionally approved establishment of
an international agency to super-
vise President Eisenhower's atoms-
It hedged with provisos that the
agency must be subject on vital
security matters to the veto-bound
UN Security Council and must be
wide open to all countries, includ-
ing Red China and East Germany.
The Soviet reaction to the pro-
posed agency statute was given
in the UN .Assembly's Political
Committee by V. V. Kuznetsov, So-
viet first deputy foreign minister.
He renewed Prime Minister Bul-
ganin's pledge at the Geneva
Big Four conference to give fis-
sionable material to an interna-
tional fund once it has been es-
tablished. He also called for an-
other conference on peaceful use
of the atom before 1957.
Paul Martin, Canadian minister
of national health and welfare,
told the committee he noted with
approval the decision of the Soviet
government to support the crea-
tion of an international agency.
He and other Western sources said
the Soviet ideas would be studied
closely. The West professed to be
encouraged by what delegates call-
ed the apparent desire of the Rus-
sians to join an international ag-

Patterson, representative of Sec-

The United States has advocat-
ed linking the proposed agency to
the UN on the same relationship
of a specialized agency. This means
it would report to t p UN but
would run its own affairs by its
own constitution and budget.
The U.S. position also has been
adamant against any veto on
day-to-day decisions of the agen-
cy. However, the United States
has recognized that any matter
affecting the vital security of a
state would be a grave issue and
the UN Security' Council would
have to act.
The United States. Britain,
France, China and the Soviet Un-
ion hold the power of veto in the
Kuznetsov introduced a resolu-
tion expressing hope for an early
establishment of the international
agency within the framework of
the UN. He also proposed crea-
tion of an international periodical
covering the problems of peaceful
use of the atom.
OLD AND NEW-The "Huron Valley" .bridge, right, now under construction, will soon replace the
hazardous structure, left, which has served until the new construction began.
'Huron Valley' Chosen
As New Bridge Name
By BILL HANEY
"Huron Valley Bridge" has been chosen from more than seven
hundred suggestions as the name for the new eight-lane bridge northI
of the city on US-23.
According to Mayor William E. Brown the new construction
"is the largest bridge in the state west of Detroit."
