Police Force
Chief Enkemanns Still
Needs Replacements
The names of two applicants for
positions on Ann Arbor's depleted
police force will be brought before
the commission this afternoon at
its 4 p.m. meeting.
It will mark the first formal
step in chief Casper M. Enke-
mann's conitinuing efforts to fill
gaps created by 11 resignations in
late November. These resignations
left the total force staff at 59
men, 31 short of the total advised
by the National Safety Council.
A Routine Matter
Enkemann~ indicated approval
of the two men would be a routine
matter, but names could not be
released until it was definite.
Twelve applications were filled
out, but Enkemann said the two
were the only ones being brought
before the commission today, and
that "it looks like these will be
the only two."
A normal eight-week training
period will be sliced in half for
the two rookies, with an attempt
to institute more in-service train-
ing after they have been officially
at work.
The addition will somewhat re-
lieve the present force, currently
working on a 12-hour day, but it
is doubtful that a return to a
normal work day will be possible
through the current addition.
Pay Increase Asked
The resignations, on the part
of men with a total of 65 years
previous service to the department,
were a result of City Council re-
fusal to grant wage increases
which the police commission re-

have preferred remaining, but

from 66 to 80 men, from rookie to

have had.
IHC Votes In
Favor Of Big
Ten Charter
Inter-House Council members
yesterday voted unanimously in
favor of a motion to approve the
proposed Big Ten Residence Halls
Association charter.
This charter, prepared at a re-
cent Big Ten conference, sets up
an association of residence halls
among Big Ten schools. It must
also be approved by the other
schools before the association be-
comes a reality.
A bid to make the University
headquarters school of the organi-
zation has already been submitted.
The University of Indiana has also
asked to be named headquarters.

Executive Force Needed
Should the University be chosen,
a large executive force will be
needed to carry out the job of
clearing house for all information
regarding the association.
At the special meeting in East
Quadrangle last night, IHC Presi-
dent Tom Bleha, '56, explained
the advantages of the proposed
association. In the past, an in-
formal association of Big Ten
Residence Halls has met annually.
IHC, at the same meeting, pre-
sented Taylor and G o m b e r g

symbolic plaques for their 100 per
cent voting records in the recent

The Council also discussed staff
evaluation forms for the houses

NEW YORK (P)-Adlai Stevenson accused some of President
Dwight D. Eisenhower's lieutenants yesterday of "playing ugly politics

Problems of the University in
a period of increasing enrollment
will be the general theme of to-
day's Student-Faculty-Adminis-
tration conference sponsored by
the Union.
Approximately 140 representa-
tives of the three groups have been
invited to the three hour meeting.
Stan Glass, President of the Na-
tional Student Association, will
attend as a special guest. ;
Objective of the conference is
an interchange of ideas about
common problems and the pro-
motion of understanding between
students, faculty members and ad-
ministration representatives.
The general topic has been
broken down into four discussion
subjects: the relation of extra-
ciricular to academic activities,
admissions problems occasioned by
increased enrollment, expansion of
physical facilities and the counsel-
ing program.
Following, a general meeting at
2 p.m. in the Union, the conference
will break up into four discussion
groups and later reconvene.

WASHINGTON (I-) - Sen. Wil-

reported yesterday to be consider-
ing entering the April 10 'Illinois
presidential primary if President
Dwight D. Eisenhower does not
indicate by mid-4anuary wheth-
er he will seek a second term.
Sen. Knowland, the Senate Re-
publican leader, declined to dis-
cuss the matter with reporters. He
stuck to his previous statement
that he believes President Eisen-
hower will make an early an-
nouncement of his intentions.
It was learned, however, that
the California senator thinks Re-
publicans who aspire to the presi-
dency would be justified in be-
coming active candidates if the
Eisenhower decision is delayed be-
yond the closing date for entry in
any primary.

American And
British Views
Vie In Debate

"Monarchy versus Republican-
ism as a Form of Government"
was the topic of a debate last night
at the International Center.
Defending the monarchial sys-
tem were Geoffrey de Deney, and
Michael Newton. Richard Dunn
and Dick Zukowski, '57, took the
side of Republicanism.
The groups, guided by moderat-
or Alice Spuehler, '57, opened with
descriptions of both systems, their
limitations and advantages.
Dunn said it was never possible
for the United States to have had
a monarchy. "Seventeenth cen-
tury settlers came to this country
with a dislike for monarchies, and
in the 18th century settlers came
from all European countries, with
no allegiances to any kings."
Englishmen Newton and de
Deney. said that monarchy safe-
guards individual liberties because
it is more personalized. "You have
your written constitution which,

Dulles Calls'
For West
A lertness
Stresses Large
Scale Retaliation
CHICAGO (4J) -Secretary of
State John Foster Dulles said
last night Western countries must
bolster their alliances and main-
tain "selective retaliatory power"
in order to meet Russia's new
challenge to their security.
"Our capacity to retaliate must
be, and is, massive in order to
deter all forms of aggression,"
Sec. Dulles said. "But if we have
to use that capacity, such use
would be selective and adapted to
the occasion."
Speaks To Illinois Group
The Secretary spoke out in a
major foreign policy address pre-
pared for delivery before the Illi-
nois Manufacturers Association.
He predicted that Western Euro-
pean nations, by speeding up their
drive toward unity and greater
prosperity, eventually would in-
crease pressure on Russia to loosen
its grip on its satellite states.
"This unity may speed the day,"
Sec. Dulles said, "when Soviet
rulers will come to realize that to
hold these European nations in
subjugation involves an obsolete
reactionary practice, e n t a i l i n g
costs, moral and material, far out-
weighing the seeming advantages."
'Need Not Become'Panicky'
He advised that "we need not
become panicky" because Russia's
rulers have launched a major cam-
paign of promises of aid to under-
developed areas in the world.
Free Asiatic leaders, he said,
will not be "easily duped by false
promises" from Russia, nor will
they disregard the danger of com-
He added that Congress will
"patriotically respond" with ap-
propriations for "as much money
for this purpose as we think can
usefully be spent" to continue
America's historic program of aid
to less developed lands.
Dulles did not predict how much
Congress would beasked to provide
for this purpose, but he said the
Eisenhower Administration would
"seek somewhat more flexibility
than heretofore" in its foreign aid
spending program.
New Research
Twenty-five sponsored research
projects have been approved by
the University Committee on Bud-
get Administration.
Budgets for these studies total
$403,955, which is contributed by
the sponsors to be used in their
particular studies. Work on these
projects will take fron, a few
months to two years.
Business, industry, and the gov-
ernment are sponsoring the various
research projects.
The Atomic Energy Commission
is sponsoring a study of the medi-
cal uses of radioactive cesium. The
budget for this project amounts
to $68,926.
Other studies to be undertaken
include an Air Force-sponsored re-
search on Nike rocket systems, a
telephone study of reasons for
long-distance phone calls, and a
Labor Department study of the
demand for school counseling per-

gratis since Tuesday morning.
Dr. Morley B. Beckett, Health
Service Director, said more than
3,500 shots were administered last
year. "After Friday, Dr. Beckett
commented, "there willbe a charge
for the shots and getting one will
involve a little more time and ef-
fort on the student's part."
Students with a busy schedule
can rest assured that getting the
shot takes only five or ten minutes
at most. After entering the north
door of the Health Service Build-
ing the student need only stop
for a moment to fill out a brief
card before obtaining the vaccine.
Allergy Questions Answered
If a student thinks he may be
allergic to the serum, a doctor at
the door is prepared to answer
questions. Should anyone ex-
perience after-effects they would
amount to little more than a slight
fever, headache and perhaps a sore
arm, all ailments which may be
remedied by a nap and some as-
pirin. Thus far, no student has
complained of a reaction.
For those who like to live danger-
ously and don't mind the pros-
pect of spending the holidays in-
capacitated by a virulent vicious
bug, flu shots are incidental.
However, students who like the
odds in their favor may obtain
their free shot at Health Service
any time between 8 and 11:45
a.m., and 1 and 4:45 p.m. today.

With Regents
Regents consideration of Stu-

changes will be possible only if
the Regents themselves vote to
discuss the final report at their
meeting Tuesday.
Reporting back to SGC after
ten school weeks of work, the driv-

received acceptance of the first
part of its report calling for
amendment of Regents By-law,
Sec. 8.05, to enable a lowering of
the driving age to 21 years.
The Council unanimously passed
a motion by Joel Tauber, '57 BAd,
that it be recommended "that the
Board of Regents act favorably"
to the by-law change.
According to Vice-President for
Student Affairs James A. Lewis,
a decision by the Regents to con-

would be "based entirely on
whether they think they have
enough time and knowledge to
properly weigh the proposal."

Nationalist China would veto the
