About Suez Gains
Middle East War Threats Recede
As Canal Users Association Meets
WASHINGTON ()-Secretary of State John F. Dulles returned
from London yesterday to report to President Dwight D. Eisenhower
that "solid gains" have been made toward a peaceful solution of the
Suez Canal crisis.
United States officials said chances of Middle East war had
receded as a result of agreements reached at an 18-nation meeting
in London last week to set,,up a Suez Canal Users Association.
Dulles said members of the new group are in favor of referring
the dispute to the United Nations.
In a statement on arriving at National Airport, Dulles said the

STORM SHUTTERS UP:
Big Three Squeeze Affect
CAIRO, Egypt (M)-The western
economic squeeze is forcing Pres-
ident Gamal Nasser into a tight
corner within- two months of his
seizure of the Suez Canal.
The government is putting up
its economic storm shutters.
The full impact of United States,
British and French restrictions on
Egyptian foreign assets with which
the country buys most of its im-
ports is still to come.
But already businessmen are
flinching at the prospect of full
economic sanctions should the dis-
pute over the waterway drag on in-
definitely. Nasser's action came so
suddenly they had no chance to
build up stocks.
Nasser Breaking Even
Economic observers say that far
from filling his treasury coffers
with foreign exchange for canal
tolls as he expected, Nasser prob-
ably is just about breaking even
on the operation.
Egypt has confirmed it is receiv-
ing only about 40 per cent of the
canal tolls, the rest being paid into
blocked accounts in Paris and

Plans for Coed Dorm Remain Static
By DAVID TARR
Plans for a coeducational dormi-
tory are lying dormant in the
hands of a student committee ap-

preliminary study and suggestions
on its structure.
But Vice-President for Student

He said the next residence hall'
