DETROIT (AM)-A union spokes-
man said striking printers and
publishers of Detroit's three closed
dailies were so near agreement
last night that "one more meeting
ought to do it."
A settlement with the printers,
however, would not necessarily
mean an immediate resumption of.

Sessions Held
Printers and publishers held

terday, and Kennett Hull, presi-
dent of the striking printers, told
"We received an offer similar to
that made the stereotypers, but,
of course, that isn't enough.
"I think we have got the juris-
dictional question settled, but I'm
not sure."

Publishers have said repeatedly1
that a dispute over union juris-
diction involving the printers,
photo-engravers and the News-
paper Guild was proving a major
stumbling block in negotiations..
Printers have demanded that
contract language specifically give
them jurisdiction over any new
printing process that may be
adopted, including that using
photo typesetting. To meet their
demands completely would give

Michigan completely dominated
last night's contest before 2,130
fans until the third period when
the Spartans were finally able
to tally twice. The Wolverines had
jumped off to a 4-0 lead in the
first two periods.
Dunnigan Leads Scoring
Dick Dunnigan led Michigan's
scoring with a pair of goals. Tom
Rendall, Wally Maxwell, and cap-
tain Bill MacFarland each con-
tributed single scores. Spartan
goals were garnered by defense-
man Bob Jasson axed center Gene
Although Michigan was not
overly impressive in victory, it
still managed to outskate and out-
hustle the Spartans throughout
the game. Wolverine coach Vic

Heyliger credited goalie Ed Sch-
iller of Michigan State with pre-
venting the sluggish Spartans
from being "entirely routed." Sch-
iller had 26 saves for the evening.
Michigan scored first after a
sloppy start at 11:36 of the open-
ing period. After Schiller had
turned away a 20-foot smash from
MacFarland's stick, D u n n i g a n
grabbed the rebound and drove it
into the net.
Rendall Scores
Less than two minutes later,
Rendall converted a 25-foot solo
shot from the left side of the net
for the Wolverines' second goal.
The Spartan defense was com-
pletely outmaneuvered with no
one, except Schiller, between Ren-
dall and the goal.

Of Russians
Charges for Plane
Shot Down in June
WASHINGTON W)-A $724,947
damage bill was presented to the
Soviet ambassador by the State
Department yesterday for the
shooting down of a United States
Navy patrol plane by Russian
fighters last June over the Ber-
ing Sea.
Total damages, including in-
juries to the 11 American crew-
men, were assessed at $1,449,895,
but the United States had agreed
to accept Russia's offer of half
paymentbecause, of "special cir-
cumstances" involved.
The plane, a two-engine Nep-
tune, was downed in flames June
Crew Injured
All 11 crew members suffered
injuries ranging from bullet
wounds to burns and shock. Seven
required hospital treatment.
Russia and the United States
blamed each other for the inci-
dent. Secretary of State John
Foster Dulles accepted Russia's
offer to pay half the damages
while "not condoning the illegality
of the Soviet conduct."
Preparations were under way at
the time for the July summit con-
ference of Big Four powers in
Geneva, and Sec. Dulles' accept-
ance of the Russian offer was
viewed as an effort to smooth the
Weather Blamed
In making the Russian offer last
June 26, Soviet Foreign Minister
Vyacheslav Molotov cited heavy
cloud conditions which made vis-
ibility poor. He said this did not
"exclude the possibility of a mis-
take from one side or the other."
Molotov insisted the United
States plane was inside Soviet
territory and opened fire when
approached by Russian jet fighters.
He expressed regret at the inci-
The State Department denied
the American plane had violated
the Rtssian frontier, maintaining
it at no time was any closer to
Russia than midway over the Ber-
ing Sea channel which separates
Alaska from Russia. It crash-
landed on St. Lawrence Island.
Attack Unprovoked
In yesterday's note containing
the bill, the United States re-
peated its contention that the at-!
tack was unprovoked.
The United States note was de-
livered to Soviet Ambassador
Georgi Zarubin and made public
by the StateDepartment. n
A breakdown of damages in
round figures made available by
the State Department included:
cost of the Neptune plane $294,-
700; value of plane equipment de-
stroyed $95,645; cost of search and
rescue $3,000; costs to U.S. govern-
ment resulting from crewmen's
injuries and disabilities $335,674;
personal injuries to crew members
$90,000; loss of personal property
aboard the plane $875.
Press Officer Comments
State Department press officer
Lincoln White said he understood
the $90,000 for personal injuries
would be distributed among the
injured crewmen, but he said he
had no details.
Dulles' note requested that the
$724,947 be made payable in
United States dollars.

WASHINGTON ('i-Benjamin Fine, education editor of The
New York Times, testified yesterday he was a Communist party
member for about a year while a graduate stu'dent at Columbia
University in the 1930s.
He acknowledged he had made "a tragic mistake" and cautioned

Man Cleared
Of Charges
WASHINGTON (A)--A special
loyalty board yesterday cleared
William Henry Taylor of disloyalty
charges which have hung over
him seven years.
Taylor, 48, was a Treasury ex-
pert in the Truman administration.
Hall Fairbanks, secretary of the
International Organizations Loy-
alty Board, announced that--on
the basis of new evidence-the
board has reversed a June 28 find-
ing that there was "reasonable
doubt" of Taylor's loyalty.
Taylor was among those accus-
ed by Elizabeth Bentley of being
members of a Communist espion-
age ring which operated inside the
government during World War II.
Miss Bentley, a professed ex-
Soviet agent, has told her story to
several, congressional committees
in appearances going back to 1948.
Taylor's attorney, Byron N.
Scott, told reporters the loyalty
board's new finding not only at-
tacks the reliability of Miss Bent-
ley but "throws strong suspicion"
on Atty.-Gen. Herbert Brown-
ell's testimony before the Senate
Internal Security sub-committee
in November 1953.

New Professor
Wilbur J. Cohen, director of re-

Secretary of Health, Education

terday announced Cohen's resig-

ed, Sen. Eastland and Sen. Jenner
issued a joint statement in which
they said the hearings "disclosed
many things. including a signifi-
cant effort on tW part of the
Communists to penetrate leading
American newspapers."
Testimony yesterday included:
1. There was a Red Cell on the
New York Herald Tribune in the

2. Two witnesses who yesterday

privilege against compulsory self-
incrimination were fired by The
New York Times after they mdi-
cated they would take this course.
Those who said they had lost
their jobs were Nathan Aleskovsky,
until recently assistant Book Re-
view editor of the Sunday Times,.
and Jack Shafer, a copyreader.
Sen. Eastland and Sen. Jenner,
said in their statement that the
subcommittee in its pursuit of the
trail of Communist activity "has
been fully cognizant in its study
to avoid any step which could
fairly be interpreted as an effort
to exercise congressional pressure
upon the American press."
Statement Adds
The statement added:
"At the same time we have been
seriously aware of our responsi-
bility not to flinch from uncov-
ering the activities of subversive
elements just because those ef-
forts involved attempted penetra-
tion of media for the dissemination
of information and the formation
of opinion.
