Russians Reject
Formal Protests
Deny Two American Congressmen,
Held at Gunpoint in East Berlin
BERLIN (P)-Soviet authorities yesterday flatly rejected a protest
against detention at gunpoint of two American congressmen when
they visited East Berlin.
Maj. Gen. Charles L. Dasher, United States commandant in the
city still under four-power occupation, delivered the protest. He said
it was made clear to him that the Soviets nov consider East Berlin a
part of Communist East Germany and subject to East German law.
'New Light'
This attitude, Dasher said, puts the four-power character of Ber-
in in a new light. But he told Soviet Maj. Gen. P. S. Dibrova that he
would recognize no other authority

Dulles Urges
WASHINGTON - Secretary of
State John Foster Dulles urged
yesterday that America's politi-
cians keep their foreign policy
quarrels on a constructive level,
and not get into fights that would
hurt the country.
"Those hostile to the United
States and its ideals are not going
to take a vacation so that we here
can safely concentrate on a domes-
tic political battle," he told a news
No Encouragement
"We should not encourage them
to become bolder," he added. "Cal-
culating that the. months ahed,
because they are an election period
for us, t will provide unusual op-
portunities for them."
Saying he was talking about
Republicans and Democrats alike
in raising his word of caution,
Dulles commented, "careless or
uninformed indulgence in partisan
excesses" could imperil the nation.
Earlier yesterday Sen. Alexander
Wiley (R-Wis.), former chairman
of the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee, said in a statement
that "if Republicans axe to con-
duct reckless personal attacks,
that will only invite Democratic
retaliation and the vicious circle
will go on and on."
Political Football
At the same time, Sen. Wiley
said some Democrats "have given
strong implications that foreign
policy may become a political foot-
ball." And if the Republicans ex-
pect the Democrats to refrain, he
added, "we have got to make sure
that we Republicans don't kick it
around ourselves."
Sen. Walter F. George (D-Ga.)
meanwhile stated "We must assure
the world that we are capable of
having a non-partisan American
foreign policy and that, regardless
of who wins or loses in 1956, our
foreign policy will go on substan-
tially as it is."

On Birthday
Today Sir Winston Churchill, a
"backbench" Member of Parlia-
ment, will light a fresh cigar or
two, sip some well-aged brandy
and celebrate the beginning of his
eighty-second year.
In semi-retirement since he
turned over the Prime Ministry to
Sir Anthony Eden seven months
ago, the versatile - Churchill now
spends much of his time at two of
his favorite fortes, writing and
It's quite a contrast with his
turbulent career as war correspon-
dent, maverick politician, contro-
versial cabinet member, vigorous
orator and leader of his nation's
struggle for survival.
The Right Word
Sir Winston' at last enjoys com-
parative leisure on his country
estate in Kent, giving him time
to catch his breath and perhaps
contemplate his place in history.
"His greatest achievement," Prof.
Preston Slosson of the history de-
partment suggests, "was not purely
military or administrative, though
being able to inspire his country-
he did well at tbem. It was in
men with the right word at thej
right moment.j
"Man of the Half-Century," a
title bestowed several years ago
by a national magazine, fits
Churchill well, Prof. Slosson re-
The Public Eye
He is "the one individual most
continually in the public eye," en-
joying a unique "plateau of prom-
inence" beginning with his activi-
ties reporting the Boer War.
Prof. Slosson compared Churchill
with Napoleon and Abraham Lin-
coln in his "gift for effective
style," with Tneoaore Roosevelt in
his "gusty temperament" and fac-
ulty for "stirring things up."
Some adjectives he uses to
describe Churchill are "eccen-
tric," "indispensable,", "belliger-
ent," "candid," "insubordinate,"
"individualistic," "dynamic" and
Another word has already been
added to the English language that
includes them all: "Churchillian."

request for a grand jury fro
Joseph D. Deeb of Grand Rapids

Deeb made public today the fac
that he had sent a letter to Child

Kavanagh said that investiga-
tion by the state police under hi
direction would continue and that
he did not feel that it was stale-
If a letter is received from Deeb,
Kavanagh said he would call in
'the board "to see if it has any-
thing additional to justify calling
a grand jury or taking other steps."
Four Involved
State police began investigating
the charges of cheating in the
tests conducted at Ann Arbor last
September on the request of Deeb.
The request was made after the
board received information about
the alleged cheating from the Rev.
David J. Bayne, S. J., Dean of the
University of Detroit Law School.-
SGC Topic:
Joint Judic
Methods of selecting members
for Joint Judiciary Council will

ernment Council meeting at 7:30
p.m. today in the Union.
Up until this time interviews
for Joint Judiciary Council have
been heard by the SGC officers
but, according to SGC president
Hank Berliner, '56, doubt had been
expressed that the officers should
have to spend the amount of time
needed to interview the 50 or 60
students petitioning for the posi-
Berliner said Joint Judic itself
was satisfied with the present
method of selection.
Appointments to the eight com-
mittee areas of the Council will
be approved at the meeting.
A round table discussion on the
topic "SGC-Where are we? Where
are we going?" will be reviewed by
Council members.

Faure has been campaigning for
early elections.
Dissolution of the Assembly is
possible under a constitutional
provision that has never been ap-
plicable in any of France's previous
postwar government crises. Faure's
Cabinet is the 21st since World
Wat II.
Following last night's Cabinet
meeting, Faure told newsmen:

tional situation which is curious
and unprecedented . . . certain of
my colleagues brought up the ques-
tion of applying Article 51 of the
constitution foreseeing disolution.
"However, according to the con-
stitution, a decision can be taken
only in a full dress Cabinet meet-

president of the National Assembly.

by six months and go to the coun-
try in an early general election.

Premier thought they were puttiig
off elections for several months by
voting to throw him out of office,
But the big majority of the vote
brought the hitherto unusued con-
stitutional provision into play.
This permits the Cabinet to- de-

The vote against Faure at first

Socialist. He is trying to reorgan-

The present outlook is that no
elections can be held before March
or April, with the possibility that
the Assembly will continue until
June, when its regular five-year
term expires.
