Geneva Proposals For Better
East-West Relations

THE foreign ministers in Geneva offered early
this week an enumerated list of proposals
to establish better contact between the East and
the West.
The following is a somewhat abbreviated list-
ing of the Soviet proposals in Geneva, reprinted
from the New York Times.
* * *
1. It is recognized that measures should be
taken to facilitate the development of interna-
tional trade with a view to eliminate the exist-
ing obstacles and restrictions in international
trade between the East and the West and to
apply the principle of most-favored-nation
treatment in the fields of trade and navigation.
2. The four powers shall do their utmost to
facilitate free passage of merchant ships of all
countries through sea straits and canals of in-
ternational importance and to remove the ex-
isting restrictions in sea communications with
certain states.
3. Measures shall be taken to widen inter-
national scientific and technical relations and,
in particular, in the field of peaceful uses of
atomic energy (technology, agriculture, medi-
cine and so forth) through holding conferences
with the participation of respective specialists
and so on. Appropriate steps shall be taken by
the repiesentatives of the four powers in inter-
national organizations dealing with interna-
tional cooperation in the field of science and
As an immediate measure, to consider it de-
sirable to convene in 1956 an international
conference on the use of atomic energy in the
field of public health.
4. The four powers declare themselves in
favor of the participation in international spe-
cialized agencies of all states desiring to coop-
erate in the work of these organizations.
5. The following measures shall also be en-
couraged, including those possible in organs
and agencies of the United Nations, which could
facilitate the strengthening of contacts between
the East and the West in the sphere of industry,
agriculture, cultural relations and in the de-
velopment of tourism:
(a) Mutual exchange of delegations and reci-
procal visits of representatives of industry, ag-
riculture and trade for the purpose of exchang-
ing experiences and learning of the achieve-
ments of respective countries in these fields.
(b) Development of cultural relations be-
tween countries for the purpose of broader in-
tercourse of men of science and culture and
of the exchange of cultural values, having in
view the desirability of concluding appropriate
agreements between states on cultural coopera-
(c) Expansion of mutual exchange of publi-
cations (books, magazines, newspapers, and so
forth) between the institutions of scientific re-
search, libraries, scientific and cultural associa-
tions, social organizations and individuals.
(d) Measures for a broader development of
international tourism and sporting relations
between nations.
(e) Measures for the elimination of the ex-
isting artificial barriers in the field of immigra-
tion and other regulations which hamper the
expansion of the above-mentioned contacts be-
tween states.
Western Plan For
Better Contact
THE followin is a list of proposals offered by
the Western foreign ministers:
The program of Western governments com-
prehends the following concrete propositions:
1. The freer exchange of information and
ideas should be facilitated. All censorship
should be progressively eliminated. The ob-
stacles which hamper the flow of full factual
information and varied comment between
peoples of the West and those of Soviet Union,
should be removed.
2. Arrangements should be made for the
four powers to open information centers, on a

arated from her lover either by an iron-
handed parent or the restrictions of position

When she does the separating herself, she
attracts confused reactions-sympathy, to be
sure, but also a certain admiration, perhaps
offset by a certain disapproval.
When she was but a child, Princess Margaret

for the woman he loved. Because of that, her
sister is Queen of England. Because of that,
her raising has been even more careful than it

basis of reciprocity, in each other's capitals
where these do not already exist. Everyone
should be allowed the full use of these centers
without hindrance or discouragement from
their own government.
3. The four powers, where they do not al-
ready do so, should permit the publication and
facilitate the distribution to public institutions
and private individuals in each other's coun-
tries of official periodicals printed in English,
French or Russian.
4. Exchanges of books, periodicals and news-.
papers between principal libraries, universities
and professional and scientific bodies in the
Soviet Union and the three Western countries
should be encouraged. Such books, periodicals
and newspapers should also be available for
general and unimpeded public sale in the Soviet
Union on one hand and the three Western
countries on the other.
5. There should be a substantial increase in
exchange of government publications and full
lists, catalogs and indexes of such publications
should be made available by governments
where they do not already do so.
6. Film producers of the three Western
countries are ready to make films available to
the Soviet Union at normal commercial prices
and on normal commercial terms. Soviet films
are already accepted in the West on these
7. There should be exchanges of exhibitions
between the Soviet Union and the three West-
ern countries.
8. The systematic jamming of broadcasts of
news and information is a practice to be de-
plored. It is incompatible with the directive
from the four heads of government and should
be discontinued.
9. The Soviet Union and the Western pow-
ers should consider the desirability of exchang-
ing monthly uncensored broadcasts on world
developments. This could take the form of half
hours .for the Soviet Union on Western broad-
casting systems with reciprocal arrangements
for the Western powers on the Soviet system.
10. The censorship of outgoing press dis-
patches and the denial to journalists of access
to normal sources of information are serious
barriers to the free circulation of ideas. The
four governments, where appropriate, should
take immediate steps to remove such barriers.
11. Private tourism should be increased. This
will require more liberal procedures as regards
travel restrictions and other administrative
practices. Above all it will require reasonable
rates of currency exchange.
12. There should be further exchanges of
persons in professional, cultural, scientific and
technical fields.
13. Meetings of outstanding scientists and
scholars of the four countries at reputable in-
ternational congresses should be facilitated.
14. There should be cultural and sporting
exchanges on a reciprocal basis, drawing on the
best each has to offer under the auspices of the
principal cultural institutions and sporting or-
ganizations on both sides.
15. A beginning should be made with ex-
changes of students, particularly those engaged
in language and other area studies. It shoul'
be possible for students to share fully and
freely the student life of the country they visit.
16. Restrictions on the ability of members of
diplomatic missions of the four governments
to travel in each other's countries should be
removed on basis of reciprocity.
17. Agreement should be reached in prin-
ciple for reciprocal exchanges of direct air
transport services between cities of Soviet Union
and cities of the three Western counties.
So far as trade is concerned the Western
powers sincerely desire to see an improvement
in the commercial relations between the coun-
tries of Eastern Europe and themselves, lead-
ing to an increase in mutual trade in peaceful
goods. To this end they have made freely avail-
able to the countries of Eastern Europe a wide
area of trade with respect both to exports and
i Duty First

Is sworn to defend the official faith of Britain,
because the tenets of that faith forbade her
marriage to Peter Townsend, she has drowned
her love in the dignity which surrounds the
British throne.
MANY people had hoped and expected that
she would kick over the traces, marry the
man she loves, and let dignity go hang.
Many thought she had enjoyed vast advan-
tages because of her birth, and that she must
accept the attendant responsibilities, too.
Americans can hardly conceive of the re-
sponsibilities attached to membership in the
British Royal family. They are servants of
the state after a fashion never approached by
any slave. They have no power of their own.

QUARTET music returned to
Ann Arbor for the first time
this semester when the Stanley
Quartet played last evening at
the Rackham Lecture Hall before
its usual appreciative and discrim-
inating audience. The program
consisted of works by Mozart, Fin-
ney and, Debussy-a selection
characterized by its variety' and
its reflection of good musical
All the works have been played
before by the Stanley, but none
gave such special pleasure on re-
hearing as the Finney Quartet in
A minor, No. 4, for it is both a
beautifully expressive contempor-
ary work and was beautifully play-
ed as well. Far from being dis-
sonant for its own sake, or pos-
sessed of trivial, showy rhythms,
the work has an integrated, and
ordered structure, and is genuine-
ly true to its age in spirit and tech-
THE ENERGETIC first move-
ment is grounded upon a simple
rhythmic figure which is started
the violins and back to the cello
by the viola and then passed to
before it is caught up by all the
strings in forceful, yet freely mov-
ing ensemble. The Quartet both
played the theme and played with
it, responding spiritedly under the
relentless thematic development.
The beautifully wistful and search-
ing second movement was also
sensitively handled by the indi-
vidual strings and by very good
ensemble playing, in which all the
voices spoke evenly and without
The third movement is full of
sprightly tempo and this was dy-
namically projected from the start,
with its affirmative and bouncing
introduction by the viola, to the
end, with its excitement of well-
played unison scherzo. And fi-
nally the very slow, melodic, fourth
movement was captured in finely
balanced quartet harmony.
other near-contemporary work,
the Debussy G minor quartet, re-
ceived an excellent performance.
The fine co-ordination and tone
modulation of which the Stanley
is always capable showed to their
best in this work, whether it was
in the vigorous first and second
movements, which one might not
think Debussy capable of writing,
or in the enchanting, more typi-
cal, third movement. Always one
felt in the Stanley's playingthat
freedom of thematic motion yet
controlled change of mood and
tone that Debussy requires in his
compositions. Equally impressive
were the individual voices in their
turn, and especially in the Andan-
The Mozart Quartet in B-flat,
the third work performed, was
played with full competence but
not always with the distinction
that characterized the playing of
the Finney or the Debussy. After
a relaxed, intimate and finely co-
ordinated first Allegro movement
the work seemed divested of ease
and consequently of the mood
established at the start. The en-
semble loosened a bit, and seemed
in the fourth movement to for-
sake clarity of tempo. Yet this
was not enough to mar the total
effect of a fully satisfying concert
of quartet music.

W'HAT'S happening in the Near
East may well be what Assist-
ant Secretary of State George Al-
len predicted when he tried, un-
successfully, to dissuade Premier
Nasser from the Czech arms deal.
Allen warned that Israel would
never sit still waiting for Egypt to
get armed, would take the initia-
tive. He also warned that the well-
armed, determined little Israeli
army could march right into
Cairo. Nasser didn't listen. He's
gone ahead with a new deal by
which six Russian submarines plus
ussian destroyers will go to Egypt.
Meanwhile 200 jet fighters en
route from Russia to Egypt are
bogged down on Rumanian air-
fields because neither Turkey,
Greece nor Cyprus will give them
refueling permits. Jets can't fly
far without refueling.
If the Pan American Union
wants to continue as the dynamic
force it was under the late Carlos
Davila, it should bring ex-Ambas-
sador Zuleta of Colombia back to
Washington to replace Davila.
For years the Union was a nice
complacent organization to pro-
mote stereopticon slides to wom-
en's clubs and tropical parakeets
in patios. Under Davila it became
a dynamic force to stop war.
Some Latin Americans would just
as soon let it become compla-
cent again. Ex-Ambassador Zuleta
would not let that happen.
John Foster Dulles will hand
Marshal Tito an invitation to visit
Washington when Dulles goes to
Yugoslavia November 6. However,
the invite won't be valid until
after the 1956 elections. (Might be
too much reaction from Italo-
American voters.)
Pardo Llada, the Cuban colum-
nist who has been screaming at
dictators for years, has now-be-
lieve it or not-become enthusias-
tic about Dictator Peron. Another
Dictator, meanwhile, has become
quite unenthusiastic about Peron.
Franco of Spain has been warned
by his army leadersbnot to let
Peron take exile in Spain. Word
has been sent to the deposed Ar-
gentine that Peron might be hap- .

pier in Portugal with Prince Um-
berto of Italy.

Mississippi got home on a MATS
government plane he felt rather
unhappy about having taken his
wife with him on that plane and
offered to reimburse the govern-
ment. The government said: "de-
Mrs. McClelland of Arkansas,
wife of the third traveling senator,
did not come home on a govern-
ment plane. When the bullabaloo
broke about the two special air
force planes ordered across the
Atlantic for three senators, she
went to the Spanish Air Line in
Madrid and bought two commer-
cial tickets for herself and hus-
band. Senator McClelland, how-
ever, declined. He said he hadn't
done anything wrong and he would
come home by MATS. He was on
official business, he said, and he
would occupy one seat in a regular
transport plane.
Mrs. McClelland insisted that
she would come back commercial,
so boarded the Spanish plane.
Over the Atlantic, however, a mo-
tor caught on fire, they had to
turn back. No one was hurt, but
Mrs. McClelland, shaken up by all
these events, figures next time
she'll just as soon stay home.
Senator Welker, the Senate's
junior McCarthy, has been going
around Idaho trying to alibi for
putting his relatives on the pay-
roll. However, he's carefully omit-
ting some of his relatives, among
them his sister-in-law, Eloise Wel-
ker, and his brother-in-law Neal
D. Nelson, who used to work in
Welker's office and for whom Her-
man got a job as Regional Director
of Land Management in Salt Lake
Brother Ted Welker, an ex-truck
driver, whom the senator put on
the payroll at $5,200 a year, had
nothing to do except sit in Idaho,
answer a few letters and visit rela-
tives in the East. When this col-
umn called attention to Welker's
nepotism, brother Ted resigned.
Senator Welker has been touring
Idaho in his own private plane--

only senator to my knowledge who
has a private plane.

MORE AND more sentiment is
building up among top Republi-
cans for a Chief Justice Warren-
Milton Eisenhower ticket. They be-
lieve the chief justice would con-
sent to run if asked personally
by the President.
Warren would have the South
solidly against him because of his
Supreme Court. opinion on segre-
gation, but the Republicans figure
on losing the South this time any-
way. Warren, on the other hand,
would win a lot of Democratic
votes in the North.

Ike: "Milton has the brains in the
* * .*
Milton once described his broth-
er Ike to Secretary of the Interior
Ickes: "He's not too smart, but
he's wonderful at getting a lot of
people together and making them
agree." The President has some-
times said privately that the best
possible man to take over the
White diouse kis Gen. Al Gruenther,
his chief of staff in Paris, now
head of SHAPE.
Gruenther has the admiration
of every American who has watch-
ed him in Paris-plus European
leaders. However, it's doubtful the
GOP convention would go for an-
other military man at this time.

Poor Impression...
To the Editor:
AS a foreign student at the Uni-
versity of Michigan, I have, in
my short tenure at this Univer-
sity, become partly accustomed to
the sometime strange manner of
the students here.
However, I still can not grow
used to the hissing and sometimes
hooting that these students dis-
play at the Ann Arbor theaters,
It seems to me that men and wo-
men of the supposedly high cali-
ber that we like to believe attend
the University, would have more
personal restraint and respect for
another person's endeavor.
I will admit that your Ameri-
can producers often times over
dramatize, but we, as the upper
intelligencia, so to speak, should
knowhow to criticize in an adult
manner. Let us all try to re-
member our status in Ann Arbor
before we demonstrate how low
we can really get.
Let us remember that the Mi-
chigan Man is a fine man and to
act accordingly is our responsi-
bility as students.
--Ivar Konstieczny, '59

practices perhaps he would prefer
one where there is no choice of
candidates not even by "spin the.
coffin" method.
Mr. Eisenhower has not been
deified. He has merely been given
the respect due him and the office
he represents. We are certain Mr.
Kelly would never admit that
Franklin Roosevelt was deified but
certainly he was given respect and
honor, more so than most presi-
dents. The same holds true of
Washington and Lincoln but they
are not deified and never will be
--Patricia Hanes, '59
and others
Questions Reasoning...
To the Ediotr:
ARE THE standards of the Uni-
versity going down? Anyone
reading the ridiculous comments of
Arthur Hawley in The Daily would
be inclined to believe so. How any-
one could get through two years
of college life and still show such
asinine reasoning and thinking
is beyond me.
Not only does he "talk through
his hat," but he has the audacity
