Offered at Reduced Price Rate
WASHINGTON (P)-Egypt's arms deal with the Qommunist bloc
is reported 'ta total 80 million dollars with individual weapons priced
at about one tenth to one fifth of what Western countries would
charge.
Diplomatic officials who reported this yesterday said they under-
stood the Egyptians have contracted to buy some 200 Soviet MIG
jet fighters, 100 Russian tanks, half a dozen submarines and sizeable
quantities of artillery.
The cut rate prices agreed to by the Communists are reported to
be virtually unprecedented. They are understood to be far below

equipment.

a deal between Egypt and Czechoslovakia nearly a month ago, has

by his doctors, which is expected

President Eisenhower had reach-
ed the stage in his recovery where
photographers were invited to
make the first close-up shots of
the President sinice his Illness,
with a lone representative of the
White House press corps standing

That was on the sun-splashed

WORTHINGTON, Minn. (A') -
Demands for the resignation of
Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft
Benson brought cheers yesterday
from a farm audience participating
in a Senate Agriculture Commit-
tee hearing on farm problems.
Later, a witness who defended
Sec. Benson's flexible farm price
support policies drew cheers, how-
ever. Moments later he got boos
from the sharply divided gather-
ing when he criticized the high
supports of the Harry S. Truman

wife and five children, set off the
fireworks when he ,offered a farm

mand: "Ezra Taft Benson must

to follow in the near future.
Information provided by diplo-
mats in the first authoritative re-
port on the quantities and prices
involved in the Egyptian govern-
ment's deal.
To make it as painless as pos-
sible for the Egyptians, the Com-
munists are said to be asking only
$50,000 for each MIG .fighter.
Prices for Soviet submarines, these
informants said, are 1% million
dlollars apiece. The cost for tanks,
artillery and other weapons in-
cluded in the deal is reported to be
equally low.
Egypt To Pay Fraction
Egypt is being asked to provide
only a small fraction of the cost
in actual money. Surplus Egyptian
cotton and rice will pay for the
bulk of the purchase. But Egypt
is understood to have already made
a down payment of one million
British pounds, $2,800,000 to a
Czech bank to start the flow of
Communist arms.

Egyptians To Be Charged

The bargain basement prices to
be charged the Egyptians -is de-
scribed as a reversal of past Soviet
practices. Russia often has prof-
ited handsomely from such deals
by charging higher than normal
rates.
This switch in tactics is believed
to reflect:
1. Russia's determination to pen-
etrate militarily and eqonomically
into the Middle East, posing as a
friend of the Arabs, while stirring
up as much trouble as possible for
the West.
2. A Russian drive to get rid of
obsolete war equipment for what-
ever prices can be realized.

Operations Shift
To Wayne-Major?
By DICK SNYDER
A erica1n Airine soffcias re
reports of a definite decision to
shift operations from University-
owned Willow Run Airport to
Detroit-Wayne Major Airport.
Though American's district sales
manager Jack A. Tompkins admit-
ted his company was considering a
proposal made by Wayne County
officials, he disclaimed a Detroit
Free Press statement that the
company had already decided to
move to the other port, approxi-

ANTSCO operates and services
Willow Run, which is leased to the
airlines by the University. The
organization includes seven of the
nine airlines now scheduled at the
University-owned field.
According to ANTSCO president
-Robert E. Miller, the board did
discuss the proposed shift with
American's George Van Nostrand,
vice president in charge of real
properties, but announcement of
any definite decision was left up
to the airline.
STompkins said last night no
decision had been reached.
SOthers Write Cobo
Meanwhile, the six othedr com
mercial airline companies drfe
a letter to Detroit Mayor Albert
E. Cobo to be made public tomor-
row.
Though contents of the letter
were not revealed, it is thought that
it isa restatement of the ains
Major.
The airlines have stated for some
time that they would be open to
any definite proposal advanced by
Wayne officials, but that a shift
in operations from Willow Run
'would call for extensive develop-
ment of the Wayne County port.
Anmerican Believed "Kingpin"
Many observers of the shift in
operations issue, which has been
under discussion since last spring,
feel that American Airlinies is the
"kingpinl" in plans to move from
Willow Run.
Some University and Wayne
County offiicals have also express-
ed the opinion that the long-de-
layed report of the federal gov-
ernment's Airport Use Panel is
due to a "wait-and-see" attitude
on the part of Panel members.

Story Carried Nationally
National news-releasing organi-
zations last week carried the story
that the drugs' "have lifted the
recovery rate from about 65 per
cent to 90 per cent among acute
[ease as schizophreniamand anic

Dr. Hendrickson. who has me-
cently been working with the
drugs, especially thorazine, said
that although the psychiatric divi-
sion of University Hospital does
not treat large numbers of pat-
ients, treatment to' the present
number has not indicated any
startling developments.
" From our experience," he said,
.thorazine is a very promising aid
in helping control patients. With
resperine we have not seen very
good results, but we are currently
starting to use them in larger
doses.
Dr. Hendrickson explained that
there are no known drugs that
cure mental diseases. "These new
drugs continue to be promising,"
he emphasized, "but they are no
new panacea.

But the medical profession has

Causes Visit
Plans Announced
At Paris Meeting
PARIS (IP)-Secretary of State
John Foster Dulles announced
yesterday he plans to meet Presi-
dent Tito in Communist Yugo-
slavia Nov. 6.
The visit will underscore the inm-
portance of the Balkan leader In
East-West diplomacy. Sec. Dul-
les will be the highest ranking
American ever to visit the Yugo-
slav marshal and this will be his
first meeting w/ith Tito.
Sec. Dulles told reporters qf his
plans after a meeting of the North
Atlantic Treaty Organization for-
eign ministers.
The four power foreign minist-
ers' conference at Geneva, opening
tomorrow may not be over by
then, but Nov. 6 Is a Sunday and
it would likely be in recess.
To Arrive at Pula
The Yugoslav government said
Dulles will arrive by air at Pula,
in the northwest part of the coun-
try, Nov. 6 and travel immediately
to Brioni Island for lunch with
Tito. He then will fly back to
Geneva.
Tito has been courted deter-
m~ndy by teSvtUnion ever
since the post-Stalin new look
came into being Soviet Commu

lastrMay. They sought forgiveness
for his expulsion from the Mos-.
cow-led cominform In 1948, when
he was denounced as a Fascist for
resisting Russion domination.
Tito's position since the new So-
viet approach has been a source
of concern to the United States,
Only recently he was involved In
an argument with Washington
over the might of an American mil-
itary mission to observe the use
he made of United States arms
shipments.
Dulles Wants Assurance
Thus it seems likely Sec. Dub-
les wants assurance personally
from Tito on Yugoslavia's status
in world affairs.
Yugoslavia is a member of the
Balkan pact linking it with Greece
and Turkey. In time of war,
Yugolai w ould be inthe psi-
