Ike Might Leave
Hospital.Nov. 11
Guatemalan President To Confer
With Chief Executive In Denver
DENVER (AP)-The Denver White House said yesterday, it is a
good guess at this point that President Dwight D. Eisenhower will
leave the hospital Nov. 11 for Washington, two days after a visit
from President Carlos Castillo Armas of Guatemala.
Presidential Press Secretary James C. Hagerty told reporters
the Nov. 11 date has been discussed among President Eisenhower's
doctors and with the chief executive and Mrs. Eisenhower.
He said that "it's, a good guess" for the departure time but that
a final decision will not be made until Dr. Paul Dudley White, Boston
heart specialist, and the other physicians have examined President
Eisenhower this weekend.

committee, the plan is divided into
two sections.
Plan A calls for the marching
band to march to the Union from
Harris Hall. Students will meet
at the Union at 8:15 p.m. where
the cheerleaders will be leading
cheers until the group assembles.
Cheerleaders and the band will
lead the group to Ferry Field.
Entertainers Included
At the field a huge "M" will
be burning as the stuents enter.
Master of Ceremonies Dick Balzhi-
ser, Grad., will be assisted by Rob
Trost, '58, and John Schubeck, '57.

The marching band will play
three numbers and the cheerlead-
ers will lead cheers throughout the
Plan B Listed
Plan B concerns activities fol-
lo(ing the rally. A dance in Yost
Field House has been planned with
an admission charge of 25 cents
per person.
Members of the Pep Rally Com-
mittee include James A. Lewis,
Vice - President for Student Af-
fairs; Dick Good, '57 BAd., and
Bill Adams, '57, representing SGC;
Steve Uzelac, '57 BAd., of the "M"
Club; Richard Kahn, '57, of the
marching band; cheerleader Ralph
Watts, '57, and James Bradan, '57,
vice-president of the Wolverine
SGC is reconsidering the appro-
val of the rally as a result of the
panty raid which occurred fol-
lowing the Michigan State rally.
Book Exchange Motion
A motion delegating the 'spon-
sorship of Student Book Exchange
to the Union will also be acted
upon. To be made by Bill Da-
mond, '56E, chairman of the Book
Exchange Board, the motion pro-
vides that the book exchange will
be operated as a non-profit pro-
ject with the stipulation that
whenever the retained earnings of
the Exchange exceed $500, the ex-
cess to be given to the Activities
Scholarship Fund.
Rationale behind the motion ac-
cording to board members is that
it is not the function of student
government to conduct such ser-
vice projects itself.

morning of Nov. 11, arrive in
Washington around mid-afternoon
and spend the weekend there be-
fore going on for further conval-
escence at his Gettysburg, Pa.,
Told of remarks attributed to
the President's personal physician,
Maj. Gen. Howard M. Snyder, that
President Eisenhower will be in no
position to announce his 1956 poli-
tical intentions before January,
Hagerty said he thought that Sny-
der merely was trying to repeat
something Dr. White had said pre-
Complete Recovery In Doubt
He referred to what White 'told
a news conference here on Oct.
22, that it would be two or three
months before the doctors can de-
termine whether President Eisen-
hower will recover completely.
Hagerty, in response to ques-
tions, said that he would envision
some- presidential putting with a
golf club as one of the first steps
in the convalescent period after
the chief executive leaves the hos-
pital. Later on, he said, he thinks
the President might try a little
chipping. Neither putting nor
chipping, Hagerty said, involves
any pivoting or turning of the

Twice during the morning, the
chief executive strolled down the
hospital corridor and painted for
a time on a new canvas.
Mrs. Eisenhower will observe her
60th birthday Nov. 14. And Hag-
erty said one of the things that
may be discussed this weekend is
whether to try to get the chief
executive and Mrs. Eisenhower to
Gettysburgh for the anniversary.
President Castillo Armas of
Guatemala who led a revolt that
ousted a Communist-tainted re-
gime in his country will fly here
Nov. 9.
Cabinet members-Secretary of
Labor Mitchell will see the Presi-
dent today-have been sounding a
refrain that it is entirely inap-
propriate for them to bring up
politics with President Eisenhower
at this time. ,

LONDON (AP)-The British govt-
ernment prepared last night to
spare Princess Margaret some of
her royal duties and allow her
time to heal the wounds of her
sacrificied romance.
Twenty-four hours after her
duty-before-love decision against
marrying Group Capt. Peter Town-
send, Prime Minister Anthony
Eden was reported ready to ad-
vance the offer to Queen Elizabeth
Eden told Parliament his gov-
ernment had not influenced the
princess in her decision. It was
neither asked nor did it offer ad-
vice, he said.
Reduce Commitments
The. government is understood
willing to make all possible ar-
rangements within its control to
meet the wishes of the princess
for the immediate future. An ef-
fort will be made to reduce her
heavy public commitments.
Margaret remained in seclusion
yesterday at Clarence House with
Queen Mother Elizabeth.

Official Engagements
While the people of Britain
talked of almost nothing else but

decision, the Queen and the Duke
of Edinburgh moved on in their
seemingly eternal round of official
The Queen, her nervous hands

trying days, handed out awards

criticism for his reported strong

Reds Assure
Israel Safety
GENEVA (IP)-Russia has sought
to assure uneasy Israel she will
not be hurt by the flow of Red
arms to Egypt,. diplomatic inform-
ants reported last night.
Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov,
at the same time, was said to have
refused to block the sale of Czech-
oslovak war goods to the Jewish
state's longtime enemy. He served
notice of this in talks with United
States Secretary of State John
Foster Dulles; British Foreign
Secretary Harold Macmillan and
Premier Moshe Sharett of Israel.
The informants said that in
talking Monday night with Shar-
ett, Molotov stressed that Russia
has no desire to see Israel hurt in

Election Committee is composed
of 13 students who were hafnd-
picked for the job of making all
preliminary arrangements for the
coming SGC elections.
The primary function of this
committee is to arouse the stu-
dents' interest enough so that they
will get out and vote for the SGC
candidates. They have already
"started the ball rolling" by ar-
ranging all-out publicity stunts,
some humorous, and some serious.
In charge of the elections publi-
city is Larry Charfoos, '57, and
Jim Patterson, '56BAd.

These men have planned some
unique publicity stunts which will
include a town cryer who will

GENEVA ()-An East German
delegation proposed to the Big
Four foreign ministers yesterday
that talks between East and West
Germany be held soon to prepare
for free elections to unify a neu-
tralized Germany.
Western diplomats viewed the
proposal, backed by the Soviet
Union, as nothing more. than a
new propaganda bid.
Reinforced by Reports
This view was reinforced by re-
ports from a special briefing given
the entire Communist press here
by a Soviet spokesman who said
"there will be no German reunifi-
cation at the Big Four foreign
ministers conference."
The East German proposal was
filed by its observer delegation with
their conference secretariat while
the foreign ministers took a one-
day recess. It appeared aimed at
influencing German national opin-
ion and Western quarters said
that, as it stands, it is certain to
be rejected.
The proposal would bring East
and West German parliamentary
representatives together, ignoring.

refusal to talk to its Communist
No Comment from Delegation
The West German delegation
here said it had no comment on
the East German' proposal.
Western diplomats said, how-
ever, that the move was almost
identical with, previous proposals
and the only change was that the
East Germans were no longer in-
sisting on parity of representation.

Katsumata Outlines Socialist Plans


World News Roundup

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the see-,
and in a series of ar icles based on
interviews with Japanese Socialist
Party leader Seichi Katsumata.)
"Coal, electricity and shipbuild-
ing would be the first industries
nationalized by the Japanese So-
cialist Party," Seiichi Katsumata,
chairman of the Socialist Party's
Policy Committee in the Japanese
Diet, said here Sunday.
Commenting on what would be
undertaken at such time as a So-
cialist government were elected,

Socialist Party official to come to
the United States, is here to as-
certain various political and eco-
nomic trends of thought among
the American government and
Continuing his remarks, Katsu-
mata explained that any plan for
nationalization would be cautious
and evolutionary. During the first
two years, only coal would be na-
tionalized while such action on
electricity and shipbuilding would
wait until the third year.
Instead of integrating these in-

more than 51% of the stock in
a given venture.
Further inducement would be
to allow investors to withdraw pro-
fit in a foreign currency, the
currency of their own nations.I
Under current Japanese mone-
tary regulations, the export of
foreign currencies from Japan is
greatly restricted.
The Socialist Party is opposed
to any revival of the Zaibatsu, pre-
war financial and industrial cliques
which controlled the major portion
of the Nipponese economy.
