BOMBAY, India (M)-Looting and burning mobs of Marathas
fought police through the night and besieged authorities in widespread
parts of Bombay state and city.
At Kolhapur, 250 miles to the south, police fired into a mob of
30,000, injuring many. There was no offiical count of dead there.
As the unprecedented surge of anti-Nehru violence entered its
fifth day, mobs forced the resignation of at least one city's councilman
as part of a general siege campaign against the government.

President Eisenhower spoke up
at his first Washington news con-

did at a news conference two days
ago, to discuss the Life article in

he had not read it.
Said Dules Averted War
The story quoted Secretary Dul-
les as saying "the ability to get
to the brink of war" without being
"drawn into it is the necessary
art." It said Secretary Dulles
three times averted war - in
Korea, Indochina and Formosa.
A story of criticism, especially
from Democrats in Congress but
also from this country's allies
abroad, has been beating about
Secretary Dulles' ears since the
article came out a week ago. Some
Democrats, including Adlai Steven-
son, had urged President Eisen-
hower to repudiate the article or
fire Secretary Dulles. He did

President Eisenhower tossed out
some political teasers for newsmen
and politicians to toy around with.
He said that while his doctors tell
him he is making normal and

"My future life must be care-

At his last previous Washington
news conference Aug. 4, before
the heart seizure, the President
said his health would be a factor
in his second term decision.
At yesterday's packed session
with reporters, the chief executive
said every citizen should have the
"widest possible choice": in ex-

Discrimination in Housing'
By TED FRIEDMAN
Almost one-third the students at the University of Wisconsin
have signed a mammoth petition calling for the end of discrimina-
tion in university-approved housing, it was announced this week.
A total of 4,809 students-over twice the number who voted
in Wisconsin's last student eletion-signed the petition which urged
university president Edwin B. Fred to "immediately and vigorously"
enforce the university's policies against segregation.
"Over 80 per cent of those approached signed," Frank Chalk,
petition chairman said. "I only wish we had a chance to reach all

Topic of Conversation
On campus, people certainly
aren't reluctant to express opinion
on one subject-that's the weather.
These choice manifestations of'
intellectual freedom were heard-
"snowfall lulls me into a day-
dreaming mood and with exams
coming - ," "I was ready for
spring," "It excites me," "Beware
of the 'sidewalk brush'," and "Cab-
erfae, here I come."
One student, after r'pparent
scholarly meditation, ambiguously
said, "This is one of the finest
Incidents arising from catsup-
smeared hands in automobile
trunks during school recesses are
not within University jurisdiction.
At least this was the opinion
of the Office of Student. Affairs,
which announced yesterday they
would not submit to Joint Judi-
ciary the case of a prank involv-
ing two University students.
The case occurred during Christ-
mas vacation when the two stu-
dents, aided by two friends from
Northwestern and Princeton, drove
through Ann Arbor with one of the
students hanging his catsup-
streaked arm from the car's trunk.
Reports of the "bloody hand"
touched off an hour-long police
manhunt Dec. 26, resulting in ap-
prehension of the three criminals
and their "victim."
Perplexed by the case in which
neither local police nor residents
pressed charges, the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs decided, after discus-
sion, not to refer the case to Joint
Judic for action.

College Student Survey
Says Ike Will Not Run
A nation-wide poll of college students on the question of whether
President Dwight D. Eisenhower will run for a second term showed a
decided majority saying he will not.
Opinions on why he will decline centered around the health prob-
lem concerned with his recent heart attack.
The poll, conducted by the Associated Collegiate Press as "a
representative cross-section" of students breaks down like this:
Yes, he will run, 26 per cent; no, he will not run, 63 percent; undecided,
11 per cent.
Individual reasons for his declining are rather disparate. Here
are some typical answers:
Ike Won't Run
"I think that he won't run because he would put himself and the
country in a precarious position" a senior attending the University
of Arkansas said.
"If elected, he knows he would have to do an even more in-
complete job than he is now doing-or he would be committing
suicide" a Syracuse University senior observed.
