Big Four Foreign
,Ministers Meet
Pay Tribute To Cause of Peace;
Deadlock on German Unity Issue
GENEVA (1P)-The Big Four foreign ministers convened yesterday
and quickly found themselves deadlocked on European security and
the unification of Germany-the basic questions "the spirit of Gene-
va" has been unable to reconcile.
All paid tribute to the cause of world peace in this followup to the
,summit conference of their chiefs of government here last July. But
their opposing policies on the two big issues remained basically unal-

door, was reported ready last
night with a new diplomatic ma-
neuver to expand her influence in
the region.
Western diplomats said they ex-

No Confirmation
There was no confirmation of
#.the plan from Soviet delegation
sources. Russian leaders, however,
aired the idea publicly soon after
the parley of the Big Four gov-
ernment chiefs here inJuly.
.The United States, Britain and
France now have no intention of
getting into any formal, full-scale
discussion of the Middle East with
Russia. , Their broad policy aim is
to stall the Soviet drive for friends
and influence in the sprawling and
seething Moslem world.
Tension is mounting between
the divided Arab nations and be-
tween the Arabs and their Israeli
Developments Reported
In quick succession in the past
48 hours these developments were
Along the desert frontiers of
Palestine, Israeli forces clashed in
turn with both Egyptian and Syri-
an troops. Each side blamed the
other for the trouble in both wide-
ly separated incidents.
In Cairo,,Egypt and Saudi Ara-
bia signed a defense pact that re-
portedly .will unite command of
their armies. This followed a simi-
lar agreement reached last week
between Egypt and Syria.
Taken together, the interlocking
series of agreements has been de-
signed to rival the Baghdad group-
ing along the northern tier of the
Middle East binding Turkey, Iraq,
Iran, Pakistan and Britain. The
West supports the northern alli-
ance. The Soviet bloc is backing
Egy/pt and her friends to the south.
Sharett Comments
In this conference city, Premier
Moshe Sharett told reporters "I
hope to God that Israel will not
be driven" to a preventive war
against the Arabs.
And in the Arabian Desert,
where quarreling sheikhs and sul-
tans think they can smell oil, Brit-
ish-led troops outed a Saudi Ara-
bian force from the disputed Bur-
aimi oasis.

ine Pinay spearheaded the West's
vernment may fall today. Pinay
'urged an immediate decision on a
plan for simultaneously uniting
Germany and making Europe se-
cure. But he said the North At-
lantic Treaty Organization defense
alliance could not be sacrificed.
Russia's Foreign Minister Vya-
cheslav M. MolotoV, demanded the
gradual dissolution of NATO and
rejected "a mechanical mergere of
Germany on Western terms.
Molotov Unuerturbed
Seemingly unperturbed by ru-
mors he may be on the way out as
Soviet foreign minister, .,Molotov
made the longest and sherpest op-
ening speech Friday. He declared:
1. The Soviet Union has liqui-
dated "all its military bases on
foreign soil"' - in Finland and
Manchuria-and decided to cut
its armed forces by 640,000 men--
as previously announced--to re-
duce international tension.
2. NATO-has been a war danger
and it must be abolished, gradu-
ally at least.
3. Under the Western program
for uniting Germany, "militarism
would in fact be resurrected
throughout Germany by stages.
The resurgence of German mili-
tarism cannot be accepted ,either
at once or by stages."
4. The social achievements of
Communist.East Germany cannot
be sacrificed in any reunification.
It is up to the two rival German
republics to arrange unity between
themselves, instead of by Big Four
5. The Big Four powers already
have "reached a wide measure of
agreement" on aspects of the dis-
armament problem.
6. To be successful, development
of East-West contact must "rest
on a firm economic basis and un-
hindered expansion of internation-
al trade.
Bishop Talk
LONDON () - Princess Mar-
garet, torn between the dictate of
her heart and a tenet of her
church, talked alone yesterday
with the Archbishop of Canter-
As head of the Church of Eng-
land, he must be the most adamant
opponent to any idea of her mar-
rying Peter Townsend, a divorced
The princess met the archbishop
-apparently at her request-in
the archbishop's Lambeth Palace
across the Thames from Margaret's
royal residence at Clarence House.
What they discussed at this sur-
prise meeting with its note of high
drama no official would say.
But to everyone in Britain it was
inconceivable that they could meet
in this heart-to-heart fashion
without the archbishop making
clear his opposition to any marri-
age with the 40-year-old war hero.

Rain Rumor
The homecoming prepara-
tions reach a climax today, and
plans for festivities go on, de-
spite rumors from the weather
department that the contract
between Michigan's athletic de-
partment and the elements may
be cancelled.
Advanced weather reports for
Saturday predict cooler temp-
eratures, overcast skies, and
strong possibilities of showers
U' Students
To Help Plan'
Coed Dorm
A large group of students will
be involved in the early stages of
planning a coed dorm, Vice-Presi-
dent for Student Affairs James A.
Lewis told Inter-House Council
members yesterday.
"We'll take a committee of eight
or 10 and examine coed dorms at
Drake and other Universities,"
Vice-President Lewis said.
To Hire Architect
Residence Halls' Board of Gov-
ernors have authorization from
the Regents to hire an architect
and begin plans for a large coed
dorm to be built on North Cam-
Vice-President Lewis told the
representatives plans for North
Campus also include building a
fraternity and sorority "row" and
800 -married student apartments.
IHC members questioned Vice-
President Lewis and Prof. Lionel
Laing, of the political science de-
partment, a member of the Board,
on recent decisions by the Board
of Governors.
Asked if there was any chance
that Fletcher and Victor Vaughn
could be converted to men's hous-
ing before reconversion of Tyler
and Prescott, 'the Vice-President
replied, "Consideration is definite-
ly on the Residence Halls Board
of Governor's agenda."
Receive Specifications
Architects working on plans for
the new women's dorm, to be biult
behind the School of Public
Health, yesterday received func-
tional specifications according to
Vice-President Lewis.
Present plans call for six to
eight houses in the 1,000 student
Discuss Shortage
Discussing the immediate hous-
ing situation to be faced next fall,
Vice-President Lewis said it would
probably be less serious than this
fall's shortage.
"We will try to put on an in-
tense campaign to house more
students with Ann Arbor resi-
dents," Vice-President Lewis com-
He estimated 200 more students
could be housed in this manner.
With relief afforded by addi-
tion to Couzens Hall, Vice-Presi-
dent Lewis estimated 300 extra
students would have to be accom-
odated in men and women's resi-
dence halls.
Benson Says
No Cabinet
Farm Split
WASHINGTON (' -- Secretary
of Agriculture Ezra T. Benson said

yesterday there is no Cabinet split
on farm policy, but that two or
three Cabinet members had ex-
pressed concern recently over the
problem of declining hog prices
which exists chiefly in traditional
Republican territory.
Sec. Benson called in reporters
regularly covering the Agriculture
Department to make this state-
ment to them.
First off, he asked if they had
seen a story in a leading farm
publication about a Cabinet split.
This was a reference to the Farm
Journal magazine which says in itsj
November issue, out today, thatI
some members of President Dwight
D. Eisenhower's Cabinet tried to
oust Benson after the President
was stricken with a heart attack.
In comment on the story, Sec.
Benson then said, "I'd like to get
this situation straight. About three
weeks ago-Oct. 7-we had a very
full and frank discussion on the
farm problem-in the Cabin.et. It

This was in the longest busi-

Sherman Adams; the deputy as-
sistant in charge of legislative
liaison, Maj. Gen. Wilton B. Per-
sons; and Kevin McCann, assist-
ant in charge of drafting speeches
and reports.
The chief executive tackled the
message - framing project after
what his doctors said was a "good
night's sleep of more than eight
hours" that left him "feeling re-
freshed and in a jovial mood."

Faure Plan
Moves Near
PARIS .P) - Premier Edgar
Faure's plan to hold national elec-
tions in December moved one step
nearer yesterday.
The government was expected to
insist that debate in the full As-
sembly open tonight, immediately
after a scheduled vote of confi-
dence-if the government: wins.
Under the tentative plan being
considered debate would continue
tomorrow and a final decision be
reached by Sunday or Monday:
The deputies were busy with
committee meetings today but
there was a feeling that the chan-
ces of the government winning the
confidence vote were improved.
This moring it seemed inevitable
that Faure would be defeated. Two
ballots on procedural questions
went against the government and
Faure asked for the confidence

Arab, Israeli
Students Air
Refugee Problem
Causes Debate
Three possible solutions to the
Arab-Israeli dispute were offered
in a heated debate between Arab
and Israeli students yesterday.
Representing the Arab viewpoint,
Khalid Al-Shawi, Grad., and Hus-
ni R. Alul said peace could be
possible with Arabs and Jews live
ing together in one state in Pale-
stine, under the status quo or as
the United Nations designated the
On the Israeli side Ariel Naor
'58E, and Yehoshua Lahav, Grad.,
expressed satisfaction with the
status quo. Israel can hold many
more people now because of scien-
tific advances in agriculture, they
pointed out.
"Declaration Illegal"
Al-Shawi, a law student, con-
tended the Balfour Declaration
supporting a national homeland
for the Jews in Palestine and the
creation of a new state by the
United Nations was illegal.
"Breaking pre-war promises to
the Arabs, the Balfour Declaration
was announced without consulting
the Arabs of Palestine," he a-
Arabs feel that the UN decision
on partition was illegal and was
made under high pressured coer-
cion, he continued. "The, Arab
nations have tried to have this de-
cision reviewed by the Internation-
al Court of Justice, but IUN mem-
bers have refused," he said.
Jewish History Traced
Naor traced the history of the
Jewish people and Israel describ-
ing the long-standing, desire of the
Jews to return to their mother-
land after they were forced to
leave in the seventh century. Fin-
anced by rich European Jews,
small groups of Jews started mov-
ing to Palestine about 55 years
"But the Arab tribal chiefs did
not like the modern culture
brought by the Jews because they
feared it would restrict their com-
plete authority," he added.
Accused of Expansionism
Alul, outlining the history of
Zionism, accused the movement of
being expansionist and not satis-
fied with what they have. Speak-
ing to a standing-room only audi-
ence in Auditorium A, Angell Hall,
he quoted an Israeli general as
saying the present boundaries were
not meant to last.
"The Jews started terroristic ac-
tivities to drive the Arabs out of
their homes," Alul continued.
"'their aim was to get as many
Jewish inhabitants as possible, in
the quickest time."
Refugee Problem Aired
Closing the Israeli side of the
debate,kLahav accused the Arabs
of making political propaganda
out of the refugee problem by
hindering their resettlement in the.
surrounding Arab nations. Arab
states are refusing them economic
aid and citizenship, he said.
Rich Arabs were the first to
leave Israel to avoid any conflict,
