Group to Consider
By GAIL GOLDSTEIN
A committee to study the pre-
sent organization structure of
'Student +Government Council was
announced last night by SGC
president Hank Berliner, '56.
Donna Netzer, '56; Phil Berry,
Spec. BAd.; Bill Diamond, '56E;
r and Tom Bleha, '56, were named
ivy Berliner with Miss Netzer as
chairman of the committee.
The committee will make their
initial report to the Council at
the Nov. 23 meeting.
Discussion was heard on the
problem of all-campus bucket
drives which resulted in the ap-
proval of the Galen's drive for
Dec. 2 and 3.
Approval was not granted to
Tag Day drive sponsored by the
junior interfraternity Council and
Junior Panhellenic scheduled for
Nov. 10 and 11.
Suggest Spring Tag Day
It was suggested in the recom-
mendation from the Council's cal-
endaring committee that Tag Day
be postponed until spring when it
is usually held because of the
closeness of the two drives.
R o b e r t Kretzschmar, '57M,
speaking for Galen's Society said
proceeds from the drive go to
support the workshop for children
at the University hospital school.
He felt two drives so close to
each other would be harmful to
both campaigns, especially since
i the drives are so similar.
Speaking for Tag Day, Junior
IFC president Stewart Gordon, '58,
said the drives were separated by
Thanksgiving vacation which
would give a break between them.
Gordon said that it was difficult
for IFC and Panhel to hold both
the drive and helpweek activities
at the Fresh Air Camp so the
groups had decided to hold the
:drive in the fall.
Bill Adams, '57, moved that the
recommendations of the calendar
committee be accepted and the
Council passed the motion.
Berliner announced that candi-
dates running for the Council in-
cluded Don Good, 157E; Joe Col-.
lins, '56E; Janet Neary, '58; Jim
Childs, '57; Sy Ziegelman, '58;

Agriculture Secretary Alters Plans
To Study Boiling Farm Problem
WASHINGTON (JP-Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson
abandoned plans for a European tour yesterday in order to concen-
trate on the farm problem, a boiling political issue.
He announced after a White House conference that he will re-
main in Washington next month "to direct the continuing prepara-
tion of recommendations to Congress designed to strengthen, improve
and refine the present agricultural program."
Vice President Richard M. Nixon was understood to have been at
the White House at the same time
to speculation that Nixon may4
have had a hand in Benson's sud-
den change of plans.
Benson Changes Mind
Less than two weeks ago Sec.
Benson told reporters that he had
no intention of canceling the trip.
He was to have addressed the
United Nations Food and Agri-
cultural Organization in Rome
Nov. 7 and proceed on a tour -to
boost the sale of American farm
The Secretary said at that time
he was "concerned" about sagging
farm prices but that he didn't
find "anything in the picture to
cause panic." -
Since then the government has
decided to spend about $85,000,-1
as Sec. Benson yesterday. This led
DES MOINES (P)-The Senate
Agriculture Committee warmly
commended yesterday Iowa Farm
Bureau proposal that the govern-
ment spend up to $1,000,000,000 a
year for a time to slow down price-
depressing farm over-production.
President Howard Hill of the
Farm Bureau told the committee-
touring the country in search of
ideas for bolstering a sagging farm
economy - that the Eisenhower
Administration program of flex-
ible supports alone will not do the
While urging retention of such
supports, Hill declared that they
should be accompanied by a "posi-
tive and effective government pro-
gram to control production."
Present Controls Maintained
The farm leader would retain
present crop control measures-
which can legally be applied to
only a few basic crops-but would
add a land rental program which
would offer an incentive to take
surplus land out of production un-
til farm supplies pan be balanced
He suggested that such payments
cover taxes on idle-land,, the cost
of seeding it to soil-building crops
with no harvesting or grazing al-,
lowed, and 5 to 7 per cent of the
annual average productive value
of the land as a rental fee.
'Would Build Soil Fertility'
"Such a program," Hill declared,
"would build soil fertility for the
future, control production and re-
duce waste. It would cost no
more than the present program,
taking into account losses on sur-
pluses and might in the long run

'U' Confident Airline
Stays At Willow Run
By DICK SNYDER
As a result of yesterday's deci-
sion by American Airlines to call
off negotiations with Wayne Coun-
ty, University officials have ex-
pressed confidence that airlines
will not shift operations from Wil-
low Run to Wayne-Major Airport
for several years to come, if at all.
Supervisor for the University-
owned air terminal, Floyd G.
Wakefield, labeled the "antagon-
izing 'remarks made by Wayne
County highway engineer LeRoy C.
Smith "especially encouraging."
In a statement attributed to him
by a Detroit paper, Smith said that
if the other airlines at Willow Run
did decide to move to Wayne-Ma-
jor, "they won't get the same deal
'Pressure on Others'
"The other airlines won't do so
well stuck way out in the coun-
try," Smith continued. "The pres-
sure is on them."
Smith has been one of the most
vigorous proponents for the shift
in airlines terminal to the Wayne
County location,. ten miles nearer
Detroit than the present field.
The University purchased the
field from the federal government
as war surplus after World War II,
and since 1947 it has served as
the major Detroit-area commer-
Seven of the nine lines operat-
ing out of Willow Run are mem-
bers of a joint operating body,
the Airlines National Terminal
Service Co., Inc. (ANTSCO).
Letter Sent to Officials
After a lengthy discussion yes-
terday of American's possible move
to Wayne-Major, the six other
ANTSCO members sent Smith and
Detroit Mayor Albert E. Cobo a
letter of complaint regarding the
single proposal to American.
The letter reminded the officials
that they agreed at a May 24
meetingto submit a "prospectus"
within 30 days outlining a plan
of operations should the airlines
shift to the Wayne County port.
It stressed that five months
have elapsed since the meeting
and no "prospectus" has been
forthcoming. "We have delayed
making certain capital improve-
ments at Willow Run awaiting re-
ceipt of the proposal. Once we
have committeed ourselves to this
added investment it will be dif-
ficult for us to consider any pro-
posal which might be made," the
Referring to American's decision
to call of negotiations with the
city and county officials, super-
visor Wakefield termed the action
"comparable to 1946 when Ameri-

Other Lines Opposed
All other major airlines at this
time preferred Willow Run over
the Wayne County port and Amer-
ican officials finally agreed to
locate there also.

hard for one airline to step out of
line and locate away from the

The purchase program was an-

Program Expected To Be Issue
The Eisenhower .farm program
promises to be a major issue in
the presidential election next year.
The Senate's Democratic-con-
trolled Agriculture Committee is
out on the road right now, con-
ducting a series of public hearings
around the country to get the
farmers' views on the price prob-.
Benson said he will again urge
Congress to approve "several ad-
ministration recommendations not
acted upon this year."
He listed among these legisla-
tion to carry out the administra-
tion's program for low income
farmers. Last April, in a special
message to Congress, President
Eisenhower and Benson asked for
$30,000,000 in lending authority

WASHINGTON-Some of President Dwight D. Eisenhower's
friends and neighbors hereabouts are considering a welcome home
celebration when he returns to the capital next month.
It's all very tentative, though. The President's well-wishers want
to make sure first that he and his doctors have no objection.
District of Columbia officials, who would have charge of any
such welcome, showed immediate interest in the idea but withheld
making any plans until they had checked with the White House.
White House officials here withheld any official reaction but their
feeling appeared to be one of caution. The last thing they wanted,
obviously, was a bout of hand-shaking or anything else that might
tire President Eisenhower.
