DENVER (A')-President Dwight
D. Eisenhower got reports yester-
day on the "excellent" status of
the nation's economy and approv-
ed a program for attacking spotty
unemployment in some industrial
The President also received word
that chances are -looking up for
ultimate Soviet acceptance of his
plan to trade military blueprints
and Permit mutual air inspection
of military installations.
Successive Conferences
In successive conferences-one
of them begun on the sundeck at
Fitzsimons Army Hospital-Pres.
Eisenhower consulted with Dr.
Gabriel Hauge, his personal eco-
nomic advisor, and Dr. Arthur F.
Burns, chairman of the Council
of Economic Advisors. They said
they reported to him on the ex-

Machines Fail
To Increase
WASHINGTON (P) - Secretary
of Labor Mitchell came up with
data Monday showing, he said,
that productivity of American in-
dustry has not increased material-
ly despite the trend toward labor-
saving machines.
The data suggested that mach-
ines have had no appreciable over-
all effect of displacing workers
from jobs.
Michell told the Senate-House
Committee studying the impact of
automation--or growing une of
pushbotton factory and office ma-
chinery-that the average produc-
tivity gain since World War II
"does nct appear to be extraordin-
arily high."
He said Labor Department sta-
tistics show a three per cent an-
nual increase between the two

world wars in productivity, or the
measure of output related to man-
nnra.'ar 4ra.,..ntc 'fnran'.Ifl A7

School Lunches
The pork and lard, Benson told
a news conference, will be acquired
for current consumption through
the school lunch program, charit-
able institutions and by needy
persons. He stressed that no more
would be bought than could be
disposed of through these outlets
and that it would not be bought
for government storage.
Some farm and congressional
leaders have been insisting that
the government begin a pork buy-
ing program to help the hog mar-
ket. Hog prices are now about 30
per lower than a year ago.
Sec. Benson said the program is
being undertaken in accordance
with recommendations made by
the hog and pork industry advisory
committee, which met with him
and other department officials
Oct. 7.
Limited Program
The committee recommended
that the department undertake a
limited purchase program if such
action became necessary because of
the marketing situation. Sec. Ben-
son said the increasing volume of
deliveries to markets and sagging
prices indicate this was the prop-
er time for the government to get
into the market as a buyer.
Sec. Benson said pork products
to be bought under the program
will be from animals of, the- light-
weight variety averaging about
185-210 pounds. He said the pro-
gram is aimed at encouraging the
marketing of lighter weight hogs
and giving farmers time to start
adjusting their future production.
Sec. Benson said pork products
being considered for purchase are
pork' luncheon meat processed from
shoulders, hams, or loins; canned
pork and gravy, from loins and
hams; and lard. He said consider-
ation also is being given to the
purchase.of hams.
Benson Talks
Against Rigid
Farm Support
WASHINGTON, Secretary of
Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson said
yesterday that despite recent
statements by Democratic leaders
supporting high, fixed price sup-
ports for farm products "there is
more and more evidence of a need
for greater flexibility."
He told a news conference he
felt it would be "a serious mis-
take to move backward to a rigid
system of price supports."
"It is my best judgement," Sec.
Benson said, "that Congress will
not enact legislation to go back
to it."
He said some farmers had ex-
pressed to him a willingness to
take price cuts if they could op-
erate without controls.
"I don't know how widespread
this feeling is," Sec. Benson added.

Lunn Calls
Lost Cause
"There is no question but that
colonialism is on the way out, and
it seems to me the UN is having
force in this whether it likes it or
not," Harry Lunn, '54, said yester-
Speaking on "The United Na-
tions and the Colonial Question"
the former Daily Managing Editor
and former president of the Na-

man discussion sponsored by Stu-

Lunn said American students

Student Conference in "supply-
ing technical assistance and lead-
ership training for young leaders

He observed that American stu-
dents in international conventions
are freer to sympathize with the
cause of colonial peoples than the
State Department, which must
concern itself with the "practical
ramifications" of American air
bases in colonies and the friend-
ship of the colonial powers.
Hollis Peter, associate director
of the Foundation for Research on
Human Behavior and former chief]
of American technical assistance
to Lebanon, spoke of a "need to
channel nationalism or anti-col-
onialism toward constructive
goals" through economic develop-
Peter suggested the UN get the
colonial powers to agree to a
scheduling of "regular steps" to-
ward political sovereignty and eco-
nomic development. He expressed
the hope that such a UN role
would prevent renigging on prom-
ises of independence.
Anwar Shaudhry, a law student
from Pakistan remarked that "the
white man's burden is breaking
the back of the bearer"
"Independence," he observed,
"surely means more than economic
well-being," but the "UN has not
lived up to its expectations" in
ending colonialism.

The department also expressed
formal regrets over any embar-
rassment that might have been

"Sen. McClellan and Sen. Sten-

matter of any special flight.
The cost of two special flights
had been estimated at $20,000.

Supreme Court Deals
Movie Censors 1low
WASHINGTON RI)-The Supreme Court dealt movie censors
another setback yesterday.,
Without a dissenting voice, the court struck down a ruling by
the Kansas Supreme Court which upheld the banning of a motion
picture, "The Moon is Blue," as obscene.
The film, widely shown several year ago, is a romantic comedy
concerning a young girl's wide-eyed attitude toward sex. She has

In a brief, unsigned order the
court said "judgment reversed"
and cited a decision by it in 1952.
The 1952 ruling involved "The
Miracle." The court said then New
York could not ban the film on the
ground that it is sacreligious. But
the court added it wa4 necessary
for it to decide whether a state
should censor pictures "under a
clearly drawn statute designed and
applied to prevent the showing of
obscene films."

By citing its ruling in "The
Miracle" case, the court indicated
that the Kansas censorship regu-

In another action, the court de-
clined to pass on whether local
police may require motorists ac-
cused of drunken driving to take
blood tests.
With Justices Stanley Reed and
William O. Douglas dissenting and
Chief Justice Earl Warren taking
no part, the court said "The re-
cord in this case fails to establish
that a federal question is pre-
sented." The vote was 6-2.
