West Says USSR
Has Wrong Spirit
Hit Russian Failure to Offer Plan
For German Unification, Elections
GENEVA (iP)-The Western Powers accused Russia yesterday
of violating the "spirit of Geneva"' by refusing to offer any plan
for the unification of Germany by free elections.
U.S. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, British Foreign Sec-
retary Harold Macmillan, and French Foreign Minister Antoine Pinay
reproached Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov for his opposition
to giving the Germans free choice of their destiny. Molotov sharply
challenged the West's ideas on German unification.
The Western ministers accused him of violating the letter and
spirit of the Big Four summit conference here last July. That confer-
,ence directed the foreign ministers

*New Vaccine
Aids In Fight
Against Cold
Health Service announces success-
ful trial of a still-experimental
vaccine against a common form of
"cold-type" illness yesterday.
But illness against which it has
shown evidence of high protection
is only one of many cold-type
ailments, the Health Service said.
The announcement said experi-
ments with prisoner volunteers in-
dicate the vaccine provides "sub-
stantial protection for human e-
ings" against one of the nine
"APC" viruses.,
Family of Viruses
That's a family of respiratory
viruses discovered several years
ago. The initials stand for ade-
noidal. pharyngeal, conjunctival.
The APC viruses usually attack the
adenoid, throat and eye tissue.
The current research dealt with
Type 3 APC virus, which causes a
five-day illness marked by fever,
sore throat and conjunctivitis, or
"red eye." This sickness can occur
sporadically or in sharp outbreaks
or epidemics.
The researchers stressed that
"there is no prospect for produc-
tion of the vaccine for public use
in the near future."
Moreover, they emphasized that:
1. The present vaccine is design-
ed against only one of the nine
APC organisms, and that research
must be undertaken to develop an
experimental vaccine against the
entire group.
2. Infections caused by all the
APC viruses constitute only part
of the over-all problem of com-
mon respiratory--or cold-type di-
seases-which strike the average
American six times a year and cost
the nation several billions of
dollars in terms of absence from
work or school and resultant low-
ered productivity.
"APC infections are widely pre-
valent in the general population,"
the announcement said, "and are
easily transmitted from one per-
son to another.
"They do not cause the non-fev-
erish, running nose type of infec-
tion which is often called the com-
mon cold. But they cause a great
variety of other respiratory ill-
nesses, and the symptoms some-
times are virtually indistinguish-
able from a simple cold, influenza
or streptococcal sore throat."
Announce Plan
For Vaccine
Distribution I
A program for the dstribution
of the Salk antipolio vaccine has
been worked out by Washtenaw
County Health Department. Dr.
Otto K. Engelke, county health
director, saidvaccine shots would
be given, in. the -office of private
physicians to children aged one to
14 and pregnant women.
A recommendation that doctors
charge a fee of $2 per injection
has been adopted by the Wash-
tenaw County Medical Society.
However the society has agreed
that no children shall go-unvacci-'
nated because of inability to pay
for these services.

to reunify Germany "by free elec-
tions in conformity with the na-
tional interests of the German
people and the interests of Euro-
pean security."
Molotov Answers Criticism
Soviet press officer Leonid Ilyi-
chev reported Molotov answered
criticism of his all-German coun-
cil plan by saying:
"I do not deny that the proposal
can be improved upon. I would not
call it final."
For the second time in 24 hours,
Dulles assured Molotov "there is
before us a realizable vision of
security in Europe by means of a
treaty." But he insisted again this
depends on making "similar pro-
gress with respect to the reunifica-
tion of Germany."
Condemn Soviet Plan
In a 3,000-word speech, the
American condemned the Soviet
plan for an all-German council,
made up 'of parliamentarians from
the East and West republics, as
contemplating "not the reunifi-
cation of Germany, but the coop-
eration of two German states."
"This, apparently, is the Soviet
view of the most that can be ex-
pected-certainly for the indefinite
future," he said. "The remarks
which accompany the proposal in-
dicate that it is the view of the
Soviet delegation that free elec-
tions are rather dangerous things
because nohone can be sure in ad-
vance what the results will be."
Maintain Sectionalism
By now demanding the preserva-
tion of "social gains" achieved by
communism in East Germany,
Dulles said, Russia aims to main-
tain "sectionalism" in a divided
nation. He described this as "a
retrogression" from the Soviet of-
fer at the Berlin conference last
year to allow Germans to decide on
their own institutions after a uni-
fying election.
"It is inadmissible and contrary
to our directive" to forbid a united
Germany the right to make any
alliance it wants, Dulles continued.
"The greatest danger of recreat-
ing German militarism is by per-
petuating the division of Ger-
Molotov sharply challenged the
West's concept of elections as the
best means to get German reuni-
fication started. He has insisted
that the "militarist regime" in the
Bonn republic must be rooted out,
and intergovernmental cooperation
developed in Germany, before any
popular vote.1
He renewed his attack on the
West's security proposals,. which
envisages a united Germany joined
in the Atlantic Alliance but re-
strained by other NATO members
from any possible aggression
against the Soviet bloc. He claimedi
this offered the East no security.1
The conference's sixth session
adjourned after four hours of fruit-
less debate. The same topics -
security and unification - will be
taken up again Friday.

In 2 Weeks
'No Threat-Can't
Make Ends Meet'
In a drimatic protest against
their low wages, thirty-seven Ann
Arbor patrolmen and detectives
will hand in their resignations to-
day to Police Chief Casper M.
The resignations will become ef-
fective November 18, allowing time
for the required two weeks notice.
With an air of stern sobriety,
last night nearly thirty policemen
revealed the problem. They em-
phasized that the move was in no
way an ill reflection on the chief
or the police commission.
Ends Won't Meet
They declared their decision was
a necessity and not a threat to the
City Council. "We just can't make
ends meet on either the present or
recommended salary," one officer
The officers unanimously prais-
ed the cooperation of Enkemann
and the commission, and stated
the chief had supported the pay
raise the policemen sought. "The
chief has done everything in his
power," they agreed.
The police force requested the
city council's budget committee to
grant raises up to $600. However,
the budget committee recommen-
dation, which will be heard by the
council Monday night, provides
for raises averaging approximately
between four and five hundred
dollars less than the policemen's
Poor Comparison
The Ann Arbor department Is
already underpaid, in comparison
with Wayne county salaries. A
patrolman in Detroit earns ap-
proximately the same amount a
lieutenant makes here. Ann Ar-
bor's cost of living is considerably
In their letters of resignation,
the officers declared "Due to the
Council and Budget Committee's
reluctance to grant higher wages
and shorter hours, I feel that I
am working to no avail. ."
It went on to restate recom-
mended wages, and concluded: "If
the common council would con-
sider taking immediate action on
placing this Department on a more
comparable level with private in-
dustries, I would be delighted to
remain on the Department.
"However, under the present pay
scale, I find that I am unable to
make ends meet."
The prevailing air of serious
faces above the blue uniforms lift-
ed momentarily, as policemen
jokingly guessed at their abilities
for other work.
But the dominant tone was a
sober one, and the policemen pres-
ent expressed strong desire to con-
tinue police work, if only their
requests could be granted.
Petitions, signed by several
business interests in Ann Arbor
were brought into the room. The
police said more of these were
still on the streets, and many
people were signing the docu-.
The Ann Arbor police force at
present is short six men of its
present compliment, and twenty
short of the number recommended
by the national safety council.
Enkemann has previously em-
phasized that the deficit was due

to low wages.
"We gotta live too," commented
one patrolman.
