Government
Wheels Turn
Under Nixon
Leads USC, Cabinet
During Ike's llness
WASHINGTON (M-Vice Presi
dent Richard MV. Nixon conferred
t the White House for nearly
three hours with top aides to Pres
ident Dwight D. Eisenhower yes-
terday charting plans for keeping
the wheels of government turning
in the absence of the stricken chie
executive.
An announcement issued after
the meeting, which also was at
tended by Acting Atty. Gen. Wil-
liam P. Rogers, said the Nationa
Security Council will meet Thurs-
day ,and the Cabinet Friday-botl
to take up matters "of a norma
routine nature."
Nixon, 42, would become Presi-
dent if the office should fall va-
cant or if Eisenhower should b
unable to fulfill his official duties
A more immediate question -
and one that obviously was thresh-
ed out in part at yesterday's Whit
House meeting-was how much
'presidential authority can be dele-
gated to' Nixon and others while
the chief executive is incapacitat-
ed.
Taking part in the conference
which lasted from 12:30 p.m. unti
3:15 p.m., in addition to Nixor
and Rogers were Sherman Adams
Eisenhower's chief assistant, and
presidential aides Wilton B. Per-
ons and Gerald Morgan.
Rogers represented Atty. Gen.
Herbert Brownell Jr., who startec
home by plane Monday from a va-
cation -in Spain. Just before
leaving Madrid, Brownell prom-
Ised quick action on the probleir
of delegating authority while the
President is incapacitated-per-
haps for a few weeks, possibly
longer.
"We'll give it urgent attention
you may be sure," Brownell said
Nixon declined to answer re
porters" questions after the White
House meeting, beyond saying he
has no immediate plans to visi
the ailing President in Denver.
Thursday's National Security
Council session had been decided
upon before Monday's meeting bul
there had been no previous word
on whether the Cabinet would
meet this week. Nixon will pre-
side at both meetings.
"Janet' Nears
Nicaragua
MIAMI, Fla. (P) - Hurricane
Janet was bearing down yesterday
night on the forewarned coast of
Honduras and Nicaragua in Cen-
tral America with nothing in
sight to steer it away.
The leading edge of the storm
was expected to reach the coast-
line about dawn. Storm f ore-
casters predicted the center would
be a short distance north of Cape
Gracias at 4 p.m.
Coastal residents of northeastern
Nicaragua were advised to prepare
for rising winds, tides and seas.
"Interests on the northeastern
coast of Honduras should also take
precautions as gale and hurricane
winds and high tides spread west-
ward along the north coast of Hon -
duras during tomorrow." the ad-
visory said.
The Miami Weather Bureau is-
sued an "informal hurricane warn-
Ing for the Nicaragua and Hon-

duras coasts on both sides of Cape
Gracias and notified the two gov-
ernments of its prediction for the
burricane."
Chief storm forecaster Gordon
Dunn said present indications are
that Janet cannot swing around
on her- course enough to pass
through the Yucatan Channel into
the Gulf of Mexico.

Heart Attack May Result
In Sharp Party Struggle
By PETE ECKSTEIN
President Dwight Eisenhower's heart attack "makes the possi-
bility of his accepting the Republican nomination again very remote,"
Prof. Joseph E. Kallenbach of the political science department said
yesterday.
"If he doesn't want to run," Prof. Kallenbach added, "he will have
a strong argument with which to back up a refusal.".
He anticipates "sharp struggles" within both parties for the
Presidential nomination.
Vice-President Richard Nixon "stands a very strong chance of re-
na^ri"" thennmnn"n"" ^" he nr"n- "

ceiving ine nomination, ulle IJ u- i

l .a o

fessor commented.
Emphasizing that new leaders
may emerge from the next session
of Congress, he said, "a guess now
isn't worth very much."
If Adlai Stevenson declares his
candidacy in November as he is
expected to do, "I think he will be
renominated," Prof. Kallenbach
observed. He noted that the
Democratic nomination has be-
come more attractive "due to the
President's illness and added "I
am inclined to think it will make
it harder for Stevenson to gain the
nomination."
Prof. N. Marbury Efimenco of
the political science department
agreed that Vice-President Nixon
"should not be counted out. If he
plays his cards correctly during
the President's illness, he could
well emerge as a "compromise
candidate."
Knight, Herter Mentioned
Gov. Goodwin Knight of Calif-
ornia and Gov. Christian Herter
of Massachusetts were also men-
tioned by Prof. Efimenco as possi-
ble Republican candidates.
Regarding the President's tem-
porary disability, he commented
"there's nothing serious on hand
requiring Eisenhower's direct at-
tention at the present time."
Its "affect on relations abroad,
particularly with Moscow" are
more important, Prof. Efimenco
said. The President "achieved a
personal relationship with the
Russion rulers at Geneva," he
added, and "it is quite possible
that if he is inactive for a period
of time it will give Moscow an op-
portunity to change its current
policies."
i Russ May Get Tough
A firmer Russian stand on the
German question was one such
change the political scientist sug-
gested as a possibility.
"The ice has been broken by the
summit conference," he said, but
the President's illness "may make
some difference in the way the
Geneva foreign ministers' confer-
ence would progress. Serious prob-
lems were refered back to the min-
isters, and more decision making
may now be left with the Secre-
tary of State."
Prof. Kallenbach "wouldn't an-
ticipate any serious problems aris-
ing from Eisenhower's abscence
for a few weeks. Cabinet members
have acquired considerable ex-
perience and Congress is not in
session."
Few legal complications will
arise from the temporary disabil-
ity, Prof. Kallenbach commented.
Under a 1950 act of Congress, the
President is able to delegate his
legally vested powers to subordi-
nate officers. These would include
powers to appoint some officers
and to issue executive orders.
Constitutionally vegted powers,
such as signing of bills and calling
Congress into special session, may.
not be delegated, however, the
professor said. The President is
still responsible for acts of his ad-
ministration, Prof. Kallenbach
added.

TRYOUTS:
Come One,
Come All
To 'Dail
People join The Michigan Daily
for many reasons .
Some have come in search of
excitement . They've found it in
the incessant clack of typewriters
and the tension at 2 a.m. when the
presses begin to roll.
Others are drawn by an interest
in writing. Daily training programs
are geared to suit individual needs
and to develop latent talent.
Modern, Professional Plant
Many are attracted to The Daily
offices by the modern equipment
and professional plant. At the Stu-'
dent Publications Building they
have discovered, among other
equipment, a $500,000 plant with
rotary press, four linotype ma-
chines and a photo-engraver.
Every day nearly two hundred
students work in the Student Pub-
lications Building to put out a
single issue of The Daily. How-
ever, there is always room for
more.
The Daily welcomes anyone with;
interest to join its staff. InitialI
tryout meetings will be held at!
4:15 p.m. tomorrow and 7:15 p.m.
Thursday, and those interested in,
joining the Editorial, Sports or
Women's staffs are urged to at-
tend one of these meetings.
Business Staff Tryouts Wanted
For those interested in the busi-
ness and financial end of news-'
paper publication, the Business
staff will hold tryout meetings at
'7:15 p.m. tomorrow and 4:15 pm..
Thursday.
In all cases, no previous exper-
ience is necessary. The only re-
quirement is that the student be
scholastically eligible, which in-
cludes all freshmen.
In their first semester on The
Daily, new staffers will learn the
essentials of headline writing, proof
reading and news, feature and edi-
torial writing. In covering beats,
which will be assigned later, they
will have an opportunity to meett
campus, local and national figures
and to keep in touch with all the
latest happenings both here and
abroad.

New County Courthouse
Nearing, Cowpletion
By LEW HAMBURGER
Washtenaw County's gleaming marble courthouse will be ready for
occupancy within six weeks.
The ultra-modern structure at Main and Huron streets should be
completed by November 1. It is the latest effort of a "growing Ann
Arbor to keep pace with pressing needs for change.
The old courthouse is to be raised and in its stead will be ,con-
structed a parking area, with underground as well as surface capacity.

zational meeting.

Paint-happy students from the
University of Michigan and Mich-
igan State University will discover
that legal repercussions may re-
sult from their artistic escapades
during the buildup to this year's
traditional football clash.
At a meeting held Friday by
State's All University Judiciary
and the University's Joint Judic-'
iary Council, it was decided that
representatives from the two
bodies will meet to take mutual
action in cases of "conduct unbe-
coming a student."
The decision is a direct result
of several painting sprees on both
campuses prior to the 1954 game.
The release of news of the new
judicial policy came almost a week,
b e f o r e the Wolverine-Spartan
game this Saturday, the time
when rivalry enthusiasm usually
breaks its bonds.
While both schools showed evi-
dence of paint and brushes last
year, heaviest damage occured

here.
Twenty arrests followed a visit
of an MSU delegation to the Uni-
versity, but only after an estimat-
ed 30 students had touched up a
similar number of University
buildings.
Some of the arrested were nab-
bed as a result of student "vigils"
on the part of a number of Uni-
versity men. At the time of their
arrest, these student - captured;
raiders were quoted as being
thankful the police had finally
arrived.
Most of the arrested students
were arraigned in Municipal Court
as well as by the MSU All Uni-
versity Judiciary.
State's Dean of Students Thom-
as King promised complete resti-
tution for the damages to the
University campus, including the
most prominent objects, two green
and white decorated lion statues
in front of the University
museums.

BUENOS AIRES - The snag
that has halted Juan D. Peron's

from the new government to his
plans to live just across the Argen-
tine-Paraguayan border in Asun-

yesterday.
This source said Provisional

The new structure stands in
striking contrast to its drab sur-
roundings, with emphasis on dom-
inant horizontal and vertical lines
of modern architecture.
Several departments have al-
ready made the move to the new
building. Both the Veteran's Cen-
ter and the Bureau of Social Aid
F have been set up in the new build-
ing. However, neither department
had to wait for furniture, as the
Vet center is supported by veter-
ans' organizations, and the Bureau
for Social Aid is a state agency.
Other departments must wait for
the county to furnish them.
Floor Being Laid
The jury boxes and judges
benches are -in for the circuit
court, and floor is being laid, but
the probate courtroom is in
earlier stages'of construction.
When completed, the structure
will furnish Ann Arbor with a
good base for further construction
and could stand as an example for
renovation of the "blighted dist-
tricts" of Main, Ann, Deport, and
Detroit Streets.

NEW YORK (AP) - Republican
National Chairman Leonard W.
Hall said yesterday the party's'
preparations for the 1956 campaign
have not been altered by President
Eisenhower's illness.
He said he was convinced at his
last meeting with Eisenhower a
few weeks ago that the President
would run for re-election. Hall
added he was "not speculating" on
that subject now. But he added:
"We're allrthinking in terms of a
quick recovery."
Questioned by reporters after he
addressed a Union League Club
luncheon, Hall was asked if Eisen-

Ike's Heart
Causes .Dip
'In-Market
NEW YORK () -The stocks
market - that barometer of busi-
ness - shuddered violently yester-
day in reaction to President Eisen-
hower's illness.
But business itself stood firm.
The stock markets fell -- in New
York, Paris, London, Chicago, Tor-
onto . The story was the same:
uncertainty.
Wall Street dislikes uncertainty.
The bulls pulled in their horns.
But the momentum of the current
business boom showed no other F
sign of slackening. Businessmen
and economists saw no reason for
an immediate change in the busi-
ness outlook.
Biggest Since 1929
On the Stock Exchange, how-
ever, the news of the President's
heart attack sent prices staggering
into the biggest break since 1929
in the Associated Press 60-stocka
average.F
It was the second biggest tumble+
in the history of the AP averages-
a plunge of $11.40 to $170.10.
It was exceeded only by the fall
of $15.40 and $109.70 on Oct. 28,
1929 in the ghastly day of the Big
Crash. But yesterday's drop was
much less severe proportionately,
because the average is much bigger F
now,
The flood of sell orders boosted
trading to 7,720,000 shares, highestt
in 22 years.
Government Bonds Up 1
Bonds of corporations slumped,:
too, in sympathy with the stock
market. But U. S. government I
bonds went ahead, hewing to their
traditional course in reacting op-E
posite to the stock marekt.
There was a wild session on the
Chicago grain market as grains
ioved generally higher. Traders
noted Democrats have been moret
consistently in favor of high, rigid-
price supports for basic crops.
On Wall Street, brokers empha-
sized there has been no basic
change in the economy and notedl
that for every seller there was at
buyer. They watched developments
anxiously.
"Eisenhower Market"t
"This has been an Eisenhowerl
market-it always has been andt
always will be," said Martin Gil-
bert, analyst for Bache & Co., one
of the biggest brokerage houses on{
the street.c
He hoted how the market rallied
when a physician made an opti-
mistic report on the President's
health and raised hope that he
might run for a second term. J

DENVER (IP)-Dr. Paul Dudley
White, Boston heart specialist, said
prospects for the President's com-
plete recovery within two months
"are reasonably good" if there are
no complications.
Dr. White added that, barring
complications, the P r e s i d e n t
should be "physically, able" to
serve a second term should he de-
sire to seek it.
But he said complications "can
still come" for Eisenhower, who
will be 65 Oct. 14.
Can Resume Duties Soon
Dr. White added he was hope-
ful the chief executive can re-
sume light official duties within
two weeks and even confer with
Secretary of State John Foster
Dulles before the latter attends
the Foreign Ministers Conference
at Geneva Oct. 27.
In sounding his note of caution,
the physician said that "for. many
people some of the complications
had been very, very ill."
Two-Week Danger Period
"But they can still come," Dr.
White said. "You want to bear
in mind that during the first week
or two during this period in which
'the heart muscle is in a delicate
state, we can still have complica-
tions. For the first two weeks
we keep our fingers crossed."
Members 'of Eisenhower's fam-
ily are expected to renewtheir
reported pressure that the Presi-
dent forsake any ambitions he may
have for a second term. Also look-
ed for is some letup from the GOP
as a result of the heart attack.
Already there is speculation on al-
ternate candidates.
Excellent Care"
Dr. White, who flew here from
Boston Sunday, flew back yester-
day, satisfied, he said, the Presi-
dent is niaking satisfactory pro-
gress and doctors here are giving
him "excellent care."
The President was stricken Sat-
urday and -taken to Fitzsimmons
Army Hospital.
Dr. White said there was no
reason why the President could
not take up golf. again -in the
event of his recovery.
"Gould Run,"" Says White
He said he did not believe the,
27 holes of golf President Eisen
hower played the:day before his
attack had anytb ng to do with
his seizure.
"If he has a good recovery and
has a normal type'of life he could
run if he wanted lo," White said
when he was aske if Eisenhower
could run again.'
He described the President as
"a wonderful patient" and said his
morale is good.
National Security Council
In reply to questions, White
House Press Secretary James Hag-
erty sad the President had not
been informed that the National
Security Council, which he heads,
will meet in Washington Thurs-
day, and that his- cabinet also
wll convene :there Friday. Vice
President Richard M. Nixon will
preside at both meetings,
Hagerty reported he visited
briefly with the President yester-
day morning and that the chief
executive had a- cheery "hello,
Jim" for him.
Justice Department Questioned
A reporter recalled that Hager-
ty announced Sunday night that
the White House had called on
the Justice Department in Wash-
ington for a legal opinion as to
whether presidential powers could
be delegated to other federal of-
ficials in event of. emergency.
In reply to a question yester-
day, Hagerty said the opinion had
not been submitted yet by the de-
partment. Then he added that
there is no hurry about it because
"nothing in the immediate future

requires the President's signature
of what amounts to a delegation
of powers."
