Chief Says Police
Can Keep Order
City Can Be Manned With Reduced
Contingent; Protection 'Inadequate'
By PETE ECKSTEIN
"It would be possible to man the city with the remaining 23
men," Police Chief Casper Enkemann said after receiving the resig-
nations of 37 Ann Arbor policemen yesterday.
"I have to admit it would be inadequate protection," he con-
tinued. "It would take study to find how to spread out manpower.
"I'd have to go back to pounding a beat myself," Chief Enkemann
added.
"I don't know what's going to happen Monday night" when the
city council is expected to hear a budget committee report calling

President's
Heart Shows
Improvement
DENVER (A-President Dwight
D. Eisenhower's doctors X-rayed
his mending heart yesterday ands
were "very pleased" at lack of an
enlargement after a week of steadi-
ly increasing physical exertion.
On an otherwise quiet day for
the chief executive, that was the
." major development in his condi-
tion-anid an important and en-
couraging one.
There was a chance that the
sitting up and walking which the
President has been attempting on
a greater rscale daily might have
been reflected in an expansion of
"his heart.
But the physicians reported in
a medical bulletin at 11:45 a.m.
(MST) "the President's condition
continues to be satisfactory" and
the X-ray showed "his heart re-
mains normal in size."
Probable Discharge
The X-ray examinations rein-
forced the probability that Eisen-
hower can be discharged from
Fitzsimons Army Hospital a week
from yesterday to fly to Washing-
ton and then transfer a few days
later to his farm at Gettysburg,
Pa.
r Today's early morning hours
will mark the end of six weeks of
convalescence since the President's
Sept. 24 heart attack.
This has been a week with more
emphasis on social than on offi-
cial visitors for Eisenhower.
Officials Visit Ike
Flying into Denver yesterday to
see the President were two World
War II comrades in arms, Gen.
Maxwell Taylor, U. S. Army chief
of staff, and British Field Mar-
shal Bernard Montgomery, depu-
ty commander of Allied forces in
Europe.
Taylor and Mrs. Taylor visited
with the President and Mrs. Eis-
enhower in the late afternoon
Taylor is on an inspection trip
to military installations around
the country, including those at
Colorado Springs, Coo.
Montgomery will see the Esen-
howers today.

Molotov Stalls
German Plan
On Unification
GENEVA f:'?--Soviet Foreign
Minister Vyacheslav M. Molotov
rebuffed last night a new Western
proposal to begin reunification of
Germany by nationwide elections
next September.
*He will fly to Moscow today-
possibly to receive new instruc-
tions.
The 65-yard-old diplomat's dis-
closure that he will make a round
trip to the Soviet capital during a
three-day recess of the Geneva
conference stirred immediate spec-
ulation that he may come back
t with revised ideas on the dead-
locked German problem.
Turned Down Plan
He turned down the West's
newest German unification plan
at yesterday's Big Four session on
the ground it made no provision
for European security.
He promised to would "naturally
study it carefully" and comment
on it again Tuesday.

for patrolman pay increases of
from $220 to $120 a year. The
recommendations fall $500 a year
short of the top bracket patrolman
pay increase requested by the Po-
lice Commission and demanded by
the resigning policemen.
"Martial law could be set up as
a result of the resignations," Chief
Enkemann commented, "but '
don't think it will be"
'Substantial Raise'
"I favor a substantial raise for
each man," he said, but called the
resignation "unfortunate. I talked
to the men last night before they
voted and asked them to change
their minds."
Mayor William Brown is "ot
worried about the safety of this
city. As mayor I can comnand-
eer every able bodied citizen to
protect it.
"I'll not negotiate with the
policemen under duress. I won't
talk with them about anything
as long as they try to hold this
resignation ax over the city's head.
"I thought the budget commit-
tee's resignation was a fair one,"
the mayor went on. "I'd like to
see the policemen get the total
amount they asked. They are
worth even more than that. But
in fairness to all, it can't be done
without deficit spending"
'No Comment'
Prof. A. D. Moore of the electri-
cal engineering department, City
Council President, had no com-
ment. "This matter is now in
the budget committee" he said.
"Ann Arbor" commented Prof.
Arthur Bromage of the political
science department, "has got to
face up to higher wages and sal-
aries for all its employees, and
cannot adjust police pay without
some reference to the general pay
of civil servants."
Pointing out that under Michi-
gan law policemen have no right
to strike, Prof. Bromage remarked
"everyone has a right to resign
rfrom his job."
While "I am sympathetic to the
needs for more compensation, the
real time for pay adjustments is
budget time-next spring."
'Happy Compromise'
Prof. Bromage, a former Ann
Arbor councilman, expressed hope
for a "happy compromise" be-
tween council and policemen.
As for a long range solution,
''we can either find new taxes or
work the property tax harder. I
just don't think there's any other
way out." He suggested "a new
source of revenue like the tax on
admissions" or amusement tax,
twice defeated by Ann Arbor vot-
ers when proposed as a charter
amendment.
"The citizens have got to ac-
cept more taxation for the support
of city hall."
Any outcome but a compromise
would be "unbelievable," the mu-
nicipal government authority com-
mented. "Obviously you can't
train a whole new police force all
at once. It takes three or four
years to make an effective police-
man."
Prof. Bromage speculated that
if there is no settlement, assist-
ance from the sheriff's office and
state police may be worked out.
He said such arrangements are
made for football Saturdays and
Iduring annual meetings of the lo-
cal police organization.
Crisis Long Brewing
He described the pay question
'as a "cisis that's been brewing.
IThis is not sudden indignation but
a culmination of a long problem of
Itrying to get the budget balanced
and employees satisfied.'
Ann Arbor policemen have spe-
Icial problems, Prof. Bromage said,
including the "cost of housing, the
difficulties occasioned by the
growth of the city and the raise

I in the number of students." I

Seek Talks
With Egypt'
And Israel
WASHINGTON OP)-The State
Department has summoned Egyp-
tian and Israeli ambassadors to
meetings today to discuss the tense
Middle East situation with Asst.
Secretary George Allen.
The meetings have been called
as part of the State Department's
urgent moves to keep the fighting
between Egyptian and Israeli forc-
es from exploding into a full-scale
war.
Israeli's ambassador, Abba Eban,
who returned last night from con-
sultations with his government,
will meet first with Allen at 10
a.m. Egyptian Ambassador Ahmed
Hussein is scheduled to see Allen
one hour later. Allen is the State
Department's specialist in Middle
Eastern affairs.
Egypt Buys Weapons
Allen returned two weeks ago
from an emergency meeting with
Egyptian Premier Nasser after
Egypt announced it had decided to
buy weapons from the Communist
Sbloc.
The State Department also in-
formed newsmen today that the
Soviet bloc is delivering arms to
Egypt by the shipload, together
with military technicians.
Statements by press officer Lin-
coln White broke the department's
long official silence on a variety of
reports that Communists had lost
no time invcarrying out their can-
Inon-fr-cotton deal with Egypt.
No Details Supplied
In response to news conference
questions, White said he could
supply no details on the amount
or kinds of arms. But he said the
department's information was that
"several shipoads" had arrived.
Ao to technicians, again he had
'no details. However, he said the
department had information that
such experts-either Russians or
Czechs-were on the scene.
Premier Nasser has been warned
by American officials he is play-
9ing with fire in agreeing to swap
cotton for Czech arms.
Concern Expressed
There is concern here not only
that Israel will be aroused possi-
bly to the point of preventative
action, but that Communists may
extend their influence dangerous-
ly by pouring into the area hund-
reds of technicians and preaching
the gospel of communism..
Nasser insists he can avoid infil-
tration by holding the number of
technicians to the fewest needed

"engaged in a quarter-billion dollar
comeback, increased its sales vol-
ume more than 76 per cent in this

pared with the corresponding 1954

Special to the DaiYh
CHAMPAIGN, Illinois -It's no
secret that today's Michigan-flli-
nois gridiron battle will be one of
the toughest on the schedule for
the Wolverines this season.
With both teams in top physicaly
shape, the outcome could likely
rest on the incentive which both
the Illini and the Wolverines have
to win, when they meet in Me-.
morial Stadium at 2:30 (EST) this
afternoon. The game will not be
televised.
Michigan undoubtedlyk has
reached a point where it holds'a .
mental edge. This is due to the
last quarter uprising in which the
Maize and Blue put on Baine
offensive flourish to drubl Iowa.'
33-21.
Now the question Is-Cankthe
Wolverines reach the same peak┬░
against Illinois?
Illini Want Victory
The Illini, on the other hand,
want this victory, probably more
than for any other game on their
schedule. The bitter rivalry in the'
last ten-game series between the
two teams hasn't seen a run-away
score. On top of that, last year's
victory over the Illini broke a four-
game winning streak and buried
the Orange and Blue in the Big
Ten cellar.h y d '
The return of All-American end
candidate ion Kramer to the line
up has boosted the Michigan mor-
ale a great deal. With Kramer and
Tom Maentz guarding the end
spots, the Wolverines have perhaps
the finest pass receiving combina-
tion in collegiate, football today.
With quarterbacks Jim Maddock
and Jim Van Pelt passing to the
"Catch'n' carry kids," the Wol-
verine aerial attack may .well be _;
invincible.
Michigan's running attack will
consist of a quartet of fleet half-
backs. Terry Barr and Tony Bran-
off, the workhorses of the bak-
field, will be spelled by Jim Pace
and Ed Hickey.
Illinois is expected to bank on
its running attack, with halfbacks
Mickey Bates, Harry Jefferson,!

The Air Use Panel recommended
yesterday that the Detroit-Wayne
Major Airport be "developed andI
utilized as the central terminal"

in the metropolitan area, accord-
ing to an article by the News
Washington Bureau.
In a 10-recommendation report,
