Disarmament Commission Downs
Debate Bid -'Too Confusing'
UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (A)-The United Nations Disarmament
Commission smothered under vigorous vocal objections yesterday a
Soviet demand for an immediate UN debate on disarmament.
United States Chief Delegate Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., and every
other member of the commission except the Soviet delegate agreed
it is not the time for a disarmament debate. They called for time to
study a pile of disarmament records a foot and a half high, and said
that debate on thi subject now would add confusion to the Geneva
meeting of the Big Four foreign ministers.
Arkady A. Sobolev, Soviet delegate, attempted to have the com-

WASHINGTON (I - Secretary,
of State John Foster Dulles left
for the Big Four foreign ministers
conference yesterday, vowing
readiness to meet Russia's "legiti-
mate" security concerns but not
at the price of keeping Germany
"Security for Russians is not in-
consistent with justice for Ger-
mans," Dulles said in an airport
"Indeed, we doubt that in the
long run security is ever gained by
perpetuating a grave injustice like
the division of Germany."
George Doubts Progress
The Secretary's words came
shortly after Sen. Walter George
(D-Ga.) told newsmen at the State
Department he doubts the foreign
ministers meeting at Geneva will
"get much beyond" the issues of
German reunification and Euro-
pean security. George, chairman
of the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee, said that not much
progress can b hoped for unless
these matters are settled. But once
they are, George said, "you can
make great progress."
Traveling with Dulles were Sec-
; retary of Defense Charles E. Wil-
son and Harold E. Stassen, presi-
dential disarmament adviser.1
Dulles' first stop is Rome, where
he will consult with Italian gov-
ernment officials before proceed-
ing to Paris for talks with British,
French and other Allied leaders in
advance of their meeting the Rus-
Dulles' departure statement used
more guarded words than some of
his previous statements. Whereas
he said last Tuesday at Denver
that he and President Dwight D.
Eisenhower shared a "measured
hope" of progress at Geneva, Dulles
"I realize that this conference
has serious implications. The
foundations for it were built by
the heads of government them-
"If, as I believe, we can build
on that foundation, even modestly,
then it will be good for all the
world and we can look to the fu-
ture with renewed confidence."
Dulles Sees Progress
Thus, Dulles appeared to be
looking for modest progress but
cautioning that it may be neces-
sary to abandon "many high
The emphasis placed by George
and Dulles on German unity and
European security reflect much of
what Pres. Eisenhower told Soviet
Premier Bulganin at the summit
ronference last July.
NEW YORK (l)-Henry Wal-
lace said yesterday the best presi-

rpress the demand. The committee
adjourned at 4:58 p.m. with the
new meeting date to be set by the
next chairman. Sobolev becomes
chairman Nov. 1 and is expected
to call a meeting soon after he
takes the chair.
Charges US Backed Down
Sobolev said the United States
appeared to have turned its back
on disarmament goals.
"I not only know of no such
abandonment, but, speaking as
Presdient Eisenhower's represen-
tative, I know there is no subject
on earth closer to his mind and
heart than disarmament.
He has told me repeatedly that
he will embrace any program of
disarmament which is fair and
workable and which is equipped
with a trustworthy inspection sys-
Near the end of the long ses-
sion, Sobolev repeated Soviet con-
tentions that President Eisenhow-
er's "open sky" plandoes not re-
fer to reduction of armaments or
the prohibition of atomic weapons.
He indicated those are essential to
any scheme of disarmament ac-
ceptable to Russia.
Sobolev Wants Debate
Sobolev earlier said debate would
help the Big Four foreign min-
isters solve the disarmament prob-
lem at their Geneva conference
opening ct. 27.
Western delegates said they
would debate disarmament here
only after a thorough study and
that discussion now would add
confusion to the Geneva meeting.
Sobolev slapped at Harold E.
Stassen, disarmament advisor to
President Eisenhower. He said
Stassen contended in the sub-
committee talks that at present
effective control or arms reduc-
tion is not possible and thus, in
the Soviet view, actually had re-
jected the very idea of arms re-

DENVER ()-Attorney GeneralI
Herbert Brownell, a top adminis-
tration political strategist, saw
Pres. Dwight D. Eisenhower yes-
terday-and said he got approval
of a six-point program for war
on crime and improved handling
of federal criminal cases.
So the conference revolved al-
most entirely around the Justice
Department's program in the field
of criminal law for next year.
Brownell said Pres. Eisenhower
approved it in full and it includes:
1. A request to Congress for a
law making it a crime to invade
the privacy of juries while they
are considering cases. This grew
out of the recently disclosed wire-
tapping of jury deliberations at

basis - to protect the rights of
persons who can't afford to hire
lawyers in federal cases.

Senator George: Nixon
May Be Ike's Handicap
WASHINGTON (A')- Sen. Walter George (D-Ga.) said yesterday
that Vice-President Richard Nixon may be a "handicap" to President
Dwight D. Eisenhower if the latter runs for a second term.

officials in his position as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee, said in an interview he doesn't believe President Eisen-
hower could "carry two handicaps" and win the presidency.

The European Commission for the

The warning followed a com-

Saar's borders will be sealed tight
tomorrow to keep out any foreign
troublemakers during the voting
- 'Peace Might Change'
Sen. Fernard Dehousse, the
commission's Belgian chairman,
told a news conference the recent
relative peace of the hotly con-
tested plebiscite campaign "might
change in the last days or on
Sunday itself." He said the voting
must be conducted with "order and
calm worthy of a democracy."'
Tempers are running high as the
campaign for approval of the stat-

border under Western European
Union control nears an end. Pitted
against the pro-Europeanization
forces led by Saar Premier Johan-
nes Hoffman are strong pro-Ger-
man elements who want the terri-
tory restored to Germany-despite
the West German government's
support of Europeanization.
In 1935, when Hitler was in
power, 94 per cent of the Saar-
landers voted in plebiscite to cast
off League of Nations trusteeship
and go back to Germany.
At the end of World War II,
France took control of the Sar's
economy and foreign affairs and

DAMP HOMECOMING FESTIVITIES?
Taylor Challenges Gomberg To River Tug-0'-War
By DICK SNYDER
Long traditional on the Michigan campus, the homecoming "Mud-.
bowl" game is up for some rival competition this year.
As a result of a Taylor House challenge to their upstairs neigh-
bors in Gomberg, restless pre-game spectators will be able to witness
next Saturday an old-fashioned tug-o'-war across the Huron River.
And to prevent disappointment on the part of any enthusiastic
fans, "There will be no ties, somebody's going to lose," according to
Taylor House president Marshall Badt, '56P.
Accepting the challenge, Gomberg's president Lee Stern, '56E,
echoed the words of Badt that there would be a loser, but both men
differed as to who that "loser" would be.
"Go, Big Red!"
Gomberg men first heard of the challenge through ao neatly-
painted sign in the lobby outside their South Quad dining room, and
reaction came in the form of an emphatic "Go, Big Red!"
An innovation in campus spirit, the Taylor-Gomberg tug-o'-war
will probably take place in the vicinity of the much-reputed "Island"
off Wall Street.
