UN To Pass
Aerial Plan
Says Reds Find
Idea 'Fantastic'
Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. yesterday
urged the UN Political Committee
to endorse President Eisenhow's
"open sky" program for mutual
aerial inspections between the
Soviet Union and the United
Speaking with the full backing
of the Eisenhower administration,
the chief U.S. delegate drew a
verbal picture of Soviet planes
flying over the' United States and
United States planes flying over
the Soviet Union on peaceful mis-
sions of aerial photography.
Pictures "Fantastic"
He said Nikita Khrushchev, So-
viet Communist party chieftain,
in a talk to an Indian audience
Nov. 26 seemed "to find this pic-
* ture fantastic."
"We Americans do not," Lodge
said to the UN delegates. "We
believe that many, many others
do not find it fantastic.
"It will be as reassuring as the
sight of the policeman on his
Lodge outlined the position
taken by the United States since
Eisenhower voiced his aerial in-
spection program at the summit
conference in July.
Plan Outlined
In brief, .Lodge said:
1. The Eisenhower program is
not 'a substitute for over-all dis-
armament but is a necessary be-
beginming for such a scheme. It is
insurance against surprise attacks.
2. The United States accepts
a suggestion by Premier Bulganin
of the Soviet Union that ground
observers should be stationed at
key points to strengthen an in-
spection scheme.
3. The United States believes
the place to start now is between
the Soviet Union and the United
States but Washington is willing
to negotiate with other sovereign
states with regard to extending
the inspection to their territories.
Want Tests Halted
4. Once a system of arms limi-
tation is in effect and operating
satisfactorily, the United States
agrees there should be correspond-
c ing restriction on the testing of
nuclear weapons. The Russians
have proposed that powers posses-
sing nuclear weapons agree to a
halt in further tests.
5. The Russians object that
the inspection scheme will cost
enormous expenditures. The
United 'States can afford it and so
can the Soviet Union. "It is a
trifling premium to pay for an in-'
surance polly against war," Lodge
'Airline Site
Current negotiations concerning
the proposed move of commercial
airline operations from Willow Run
Airport to Wayne-Major Airport
continue in a state of flux. .
The most recent development
has been a proposal by Wayne
County officials for a 27 million
dollar developmental program at
Wayne Major. According to Le-
roy C., Smith, county engineer,
about one half of 'this sum would
be required for initial construction
of such facilities as hangars and

a terminal building.
Smith said these funds would
come from federal aid, state and
county appropriations, and an is-
sue of revenue bonds. He declined
to comment on what the appor-
tionment amongst the sources
would be.
No decision has been reached on
this proposal and the entire prob-
lem is still under study. The air-
lines are opposed to the move de-
spite the offers of Wayne County
and recent recommendations of the
federal government's Air Use Panel
that Willow Run be converted to
military use.

versity, is operated by Airlines Na-

January Meeting on Cold War
Strategy To Be Held at White House
GETTYSBURG, Pa. (IF) - Two top leaders of the Western
world, President Dwight D. Eisenhower and British Prime Minister
Anthony Eden, will meet at the White House Jan. 30 on strategy for
combatting Russia's stepped-up cold war maneuvers.
A massive array of touchy international issues will confront this
hands-across-the-Atlantic conference in the wake of the failure of
the Geneva foreign ministers' sessiois last month to bridge major
gaps dividing East and West.
But there were no solid indications that either the President or

Air Defense
Puto rial
WASH{INGTON (M -)- Operation
Cracker Jack -- a surprise test of
the air defenses of the North
American continent, got under way
late yesterday.
Some 400,000 members of the
civilian Ground Observer Corps,
plus joint forces of the United
States and Canada were taking
part in the exercise.
Primary objective of the test, is
to test the effectiveness of the
radar tracking and interceptor de-
fenses of both the United States
and Canada.
Air National Guard pilots tak-
ing part in the exercise are under
orders which call for them to be
on duty for a period not to exceed
four days.
Planes of the U.S. Strategic Air
Command were playing the part
of a mythical enemy in attempt-
ing to penetrate the air defense
set up.
Elements of the U.S. Air Force,
Navy, Marines and the National
Guard were involved in the exer-
cise, along with Canadian forces.
The Air Defense Command at
Colorado Springs, Colo., said no'
figures would be disclosed as to
the actual number of units or
planes taking part in the test,

Long Shot!
Edwards, WTTV newscaster and
former national commentator
for the AFL, said yesterday he
was as amazed as anybody
when the body of missing 3-
year-old Ronnie Weitkamp was
found Sunday in woods near
Crane, Ind., as he forecast Oct.
Edwards said he sent two
friends to "interview" a 33-
year-old horse, Lady Wonder,
at Richmond, Va., which pur-
portedly answers questions by
nudging letters hanging from
a wire.
The horse, which had been
credited with locating the body
of missing Dann Matson of
Quincy, Mass., in 1952, spelled
out that the Weitkamp boy
would be found dead, in Decem-
ber, in woods about a mile from
his home.
Langer Asks
Power Bill
WASHINGTON () - Sen. Wil-
liam Langer (D-ND) demanded
yesterday that the Senate sub-
poena postmaster General Arthur
E. Summerfield and Sherman Ad-
ams, top White House aide, in the
new Dixon-Yates probe.
Langer said he wants to bring
.out "how much money Mr. Dixon
and Mr. Yates . . . contributed to
the campaign funds of the Repub-
lican party" in the 1952 campaign
in which President Eisenhower
won election.
Utility Magnates
Edgar H. Dixon and Eugene A.
Yates are the utility magnates who
contract~d with the government to
build a 107 million dollar power
plant at West Memphis, Ark., to
furnish electricity for the Ten-
nessee Valley Authority
The contract has been canceled
and now the subcommittee, headed
by Sen. Estes Kefauver (D-Tenn),
is engaged in a search for any
"criminal conspiracy" which might
be connected with it.
Two Refusals,
Chairman Lewis E. Strauss of
the Atomic Energy Commission
and Budget Director Rowland R.
Hughes both refused yesterday to
tell the senators whether they had
discussed ramifications of the con-
tract with Adams or anyone else
at the White House.
They both contended any such
discussions, if they were in fact
held, would be privileged communi-
cations within the executive branch.
of the government.
Langer, a subcommittee member,
said his demand to subpoena Ad-
ams and Summerfield was "moti-
vated partly by the fact" that a
federal grand jury in St. Louis has
indicated Matthew J. Connelly and
T. Lamar Caudle for conspiring to
defraud the government in income
tax cases.
Connelly was a top White House
aide in the Truman administration
and Caudle held a senior post in
the Justice Department.
Could Plead Exemption
Langer said he believes Connelly
could have pleaded exemption, or
privilege, in any congressional
inquiry into such a matter on
grounds that he was a White
House aide not subject to con-
gressional subjoena.
Therefore, Langer said, he is
proposing that both Summerfield
and Adams be subjoenaed, not as
government officials, but as private

citizens -- Summerfield as former
chairman of the Republican Na-
tional Committee during the 1952
presidential campaign.

Shortly before the regents acted,
Gov. Marvin Griffin had backed
down somewhat on his Friday de-
mand for a racial policy that.not
only would have barred Georgia
Tech from the Sugar Bowl but
would have prohibited any Georgia,
state college teams from playing
against Negroes or before unsegre-
gated spectators.'

The governor told his news con-

the Sugar Bowl and that he would
not oppose nonsegregated games
played in states where segrega-

The world's movie capital will get the full treatment tonight
with the opening of "Film Flam," the 36th annual Union Opera.
Yesterday's dress rehearsal of the satire on Hollywood "worked

"We've been knotting the thing up," he added, "and I think
we've got a good show.

"We're more ready for a show now than I think we've been for
years on the day before opening," he continued, attributing it to early
