Dewey Claims Stevenson.
Would Turn U.S. to Reds

Democratic
Atomic Plan
Criticized
Accuses Adlai of 'Sly
Bidding for Votes
By PETER ECKSTEIN
Thomas E. Dewey yesterday told
a Young Republican rally in Hill
Auditorium that Adlai Stevenson
is a "man whose touching faith
would leave our destinies in the
tender hands of the men from
Moscow."
4 He said Stevenson's proposal the
United States take the lead in
stopping further atomic-hydrogen
tests "indicates the New America
would be a place where most of us
would not live long enough to en-
joy it.
He called Stevenson's suggestion
that the draft might be ended in
the forseeable future "a sly, smooth
bid" for votes. "Tht kind of poli-
tics," the two-time Republican
nominee for President charged,
"isdthe stuff- of Which wars are
made."
Refering to the fact that both
- his sons have been drafted in re-
cent years, the former New York
governor declared "I want my
" boys trained for peace by an Ad-
ministration that knows how to
lead from strength and not from
weakness."
Stability Shaken
He asserted to a capacity crowd
of over 4000 the "confidence of
the free world in our stability was
shaken to the core" by Stevenson's
"calculated, studied speech" on
hydrogen bomb tests, and the Dem-
ocratic Presidential nominee is
"dealing with foreign policy on a
happy thought basis."
Under the Eisenhower Admin-
istration Americans are enjoying
'"the greatest prosperity in our his-
tory," Dewey claimed, but "if' we
have an irresponsible, inexper-
ienced man in the White House
and we go to war again, all of this
will tragically change."
Dewey conceded he could not
say "with certainty that the re-
election of President Eisenhower
is a guarantee against war or that
the election of Mr. Stevenson
means we will surely be plunged
into war."
However, there are some things
that we can say for sure. The path
to peace, to a lasting peace, is
slippery, long and very rough. We
do not dare risk a trial-and-error
leadership in matters of life and
death."t
Stalin's Death Not Sole Cause
Great changes in the policies oft
the Soviet in the past four, years
were only "partially" caused by
Stalin's death. Dewey commented
during one of the many departures
fro mhis prepared text. He called
O the contest for the allegiance of
the uncommitteed nations one of
the most important problems fac-
'ing the United States, adding "the
architects of the policy which
eased the tensions" should be left
in power due to the "necessity of
keeping tried and tested leader-
ship."
Focusing his attentions on the
Michigan political situation, Dewey
charged that United Auto Work-
ers President Walter Reuther has
been governor "in fact" during the
eight years G. Mennen Williams
has been governor "in name."
However, "Mr. Reuthe won't
be able to give as much time as
usual to this election because he
has moved out to larger fields. He
has transferred his devouring em-
brace" from Williams to Steven-
son.

he ridicules alleged discrepancies between Democratic Congres-

'Suez Crisis Gravest,'
Dewey Tells Newsmen
"If the oil of the. Middle East is turned off," Thomas E. Dewey
said in a press conference yesterday at The Daily, "the fires of Europe
go off."
The former Republican Presidential nominee told assembled local
and state newsmen the Suez crisis constitutes the "gravest menace"
to the existence of those nations.

Tufts Local
Of Sorority
Severs Ties
Discrimination Given
As Reason for Act
Special To The Daily
MEDFORD, Mass. - Alpha Xi
Delta chapter at Tufts Colege
voted yesterday to resign from the
national because of what it termed
"discriminatory practices."
They became the second sorority
at Tufts to leave their national
because of discrimination. Sigma
Kappa was suspended from its
national this summer when it
pledged Negro girls.
Peggy Ross, '57, president of
Alpha Xi Delta chapter at the
University, declined to comment
because of lack of facts.
Miss Ross said she did not know
of any restrictions within the
sorority that would prevent its
pledging Negro girls. "We've never
had such a situation. I don't know
what the national would do," she
commented.
The Tufts chapter received full
support from the faculty com-
mittee on student organizations
which officially withdrew recogni-
tion of the national sorority.
The group is planning to con-
tinue at Tufts as a local organiza-
tion.
Contacted in Chicago, Ill., Alpha
Xi Delta Executive Secretary Ger-
trude Anderson said she had not
been officially notified of the
group's action yet. All she would
say is "I think it's unfortunate."
Askedif Alpha Xi Delta chap-
ters could pledge Negro girls if
they chose to, Mrs. Anderson com-
mented, "I think you're getting on
to personalities."
There is reportedly no clause in
the sorority's constitution.
Med School
Conference
Opens Today
The Sixth Triennial Medical
Conference will get underway to-
day with clinics on-several topics
concerning Obstetrics and Gyne-
cology.
The Conference, which will con-
tinue through Saturday, will be
attended by approximately 400
alumni of the University Medical
School, according to an estimate by
Robert 0. Morgan, Assistant Gen-
eral Secretary of the Alumni As-
sociation and chairman of the
Conference Housing Committee.
About 90 per cent will come from
out of state.
A potentially serious housing
problem was averted by procuring
hotel reservations for 50 out-state
guests at a Detroit hotel, accord-
ing to Morgan. Hotel facilities in
this vicinity are filled, he said.
The conference will end Satur-
day morning with a convocation
of the Medical School.. University
President Harlan Hatcher will in-
troduce University Vice-President
Wilbur K. Plerpont who will speak
on the topic, "The Campus Exten-
sion Program."

Tom Dewey's return to Michigan
yesterday was a parade of Lin-
colns, balloons, and precinct work-
ers.
From his arrival at Willow Run
airport, where three young blonde
ladies drove the cavalcade onto the
the field as the plane landed, to
last night's reception in a smokey
Union ballroom, the ex-Daily Tele-
graph editor was obviously having
fun.
His first campus appearance was
in the City Room of the Student
Publications Building, where a
large sign gushed "Welcome Home,
Tom."
"This is a bloomin' palace," the
visitor said. "When I worked for
the paper, the floors creaked and
the stairs were always threatening
to fall in."
The most excitement came later
in an almost filled Hill Auditorium.
"Four more years! Four more
years!" one man demanded. Later
he burst out, "Tell 'em, Tom."
A proud sort of echo lingered
after the crowd of loyal Republi-
cans, inquisitive Democrats, and
stoic reporters stood to sing the
National Anthem.

ng to let your lifeblood depend on,"
",Dewey explained. He described
himself, however, as "lost in ad-
miration" for the way Secretary of
State John Foster Dulles, his
former advisor on foreign affairs,
has handled the situation.
Dulles' withdrawal of an offer
of American aid in building the
proposed Aswan Dam was justified
because "the loan was no good.
The cotton-state Senators. put a
rider on a bill forbidding it."
Dewey saw "no connection" be-
tween the death of Stalin and the
end of the Korean war. "The Com-
munists knew they were going to
lose" if they continued the war
once President Dight D. Eisen-
hower took office, he said, because
of a "number of acts" the new ad-
ministration took.
He refused to specify any of the

UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. -
The United Nation's Security
Council approved yesterday a
far-ranging debate beginning next
week on the Suez Canal crisis in
a desperate attempt to find a
peaceful .solution.
Acting two months to the day
after President Abdel Nasser seized
the 103-mile waterway, the Council
unanimously put on its agenda a
British-French proposal for debate
on the situation created by Egypt's
action.
Then the Council voted 7-0 to
put on its business sheet a coun-
ter-complaint by Egypt alleging
the actions of Britain and France
againstEgypthad violated the
charter and threatened interna-
tional peace.
WASHINGTON -Secretary of
State John Foster Dulles said yes-
terday mounting economic pres-
sure eventually would force Egypt
to accept a "reasonable settlement"
of the Suez Canal dispute.
Dulles told a news. conference
Western countries have no plan for
"economic warfare," as such,
against Egypt.
But he said economic pressures,
such as less of trade, tourists and
private investments are already
building up-"inevitably and in-
exerably."

IFC Shows
Enthusiasm
In Frat Row
By RICHARD TAUB
Outlook for fraternity housing
on North Campus is "excellent,"
Interfraternity Council President
Tim Leedy told The Daily last
night.
"We are receiving a great deal of
cooperation from the University at
this point," he explained. "Now all
we have to do is overcome a few
hurdles."
This is more than a fraternity
project, Leedy said. IFC has taken
the initiative, but this is actually
a University housing problem.
He added that three sororities
and one co-op have already shown
great interest in the project. There
will also be room for professional
fraternities if they are interested.
Financial Problem
"Our major problem is a finan-
cial one," the IFC president said.
"If the University guarantees our
mortgages to insurance companies,
we'll be allset."
Right now, according to Leedy,
Ed Gage, Zeta Beta Tau fraternity
adviser and chairman of the com-
mittee on North Campus housing

for fraternities; is investigating
mortgage provision of insurance'
companies.
These-figures will probably be
reported to University Vice-Presi-
dent for Financial Affairs Wilbur
K. Pierpont in a few months.
IFC is now preparing a report
for fraternity alumni corporations,,
national organizations and frater-
nity presidents explaining their

pension by Sigma Kappa's Nation-
al Council of chapters at Cornell
and Tufts last summer.
The group will present its rec-
ommendations to SGC by Oct.11.
Appoint New Board Member

JERUSALEM (A)-Israeli and
Jordan soldiers blazed out with
new bursts of automatic gunfire
in divided Jerusalem last night.
The city fighting was a brief but
noisy aftermath of the bloody
seven-hour overnight battle touch-
ed off by an Israeli reprisal in-
vasion of Jordan. That battle end-
ed yesterday morning.
United Nations truce observer4.
quickly ordered a cease-fire in the
Jerusalem clash last night. Botl.
sides obeyed immediately. No caa
ualties were reported.
Hint of Counter-Campaign
Jordan authorities have hined
at a massive Arab counterami-
paign if the UN Security Coucil
fails to stop raids such as the Is-
raeli incursion two and one-half
miles inside Jordan.
There was intensive consultation
In Arab country capitals and at
the tN Syria's Premier Sabri
Assali, said in Damascus a gen-
eral conference of all Arab coun-
try heads of state was being con-
sidered.
Iraqi Army Ready
Reports from Baghdad said the
Iraqi army was getting ready to
move across the frontier to help
Jordan if the Israeli attacks look-
ed like full scale war.
The overnight battle occurred
in the Husan area six miles south-
west of Jerusalem. It was the
third such attack this month on
Jordan.
Jordan authorities said the raid
was made in brigade strength, ap-
parently meaning from 1,000 to
2,000 men.
Jordan acknowledged 31 of Jor-
dan soldiers were slain and re-
ported 90 to 100 Israelis killed in
the hand-to-hand fight that raged
into the early morning.
Claim Self-Defense
Israel announced the overnight
attacks as a self-defense measure
intended to discourage Jordan at-
tacks, and said its figures were
S" Jordanians killed, five Israelis
killed, and nine Israelis wounded.
Jordan sources said the brigade-
strength Israeli attack was sup-
ported by artillery.
But the Israeli major who led
the assault said no artillery or
mortars were used by his force in
smashing a fortress-type police
post and ambushing Jordan troops
that swarmed to the spot.
Aftermath
Of Accident:

University officials said yester-
day no major repercussions have

dents and two Detroit residents

The Daily that speculation parents
and alumni might ne pushing for
stronger enforcement of University
drinking regulations was unfound-
ed.
The accident occurred while the
students were reportedly on their
way to a fraternity dinner.
It was later established that
there had been drinking at a pre-
dinner party but no causal re-
lationship was proven.
Rea said that no new or more
extensive plan to combat drinking
at the University is planned at the
moment.
Asked if student help might be
employed to a large degree if such
a move were taken in the futuie

NO WATER, MANY PROBLEMS-Class of '56's atomic age
fountain shows evidence of chiseling (to remove air pockets, that
would have burst in cold weather) but no sign of water. The
fountain was a gift of the class of '56 and if ever completed pur-
ports the only genuine "Atomic Age" fountain in this part of the
country. Construction has been a costly project, especially for.
the contractor, who has already spent twice his bid on the master-
piece.

A Gey ser of Headaches

By VERNON NAHRGANG
Gone now is the University's.
Class of '56, but it has left behind
itself an "atomic age" fountain to,
be remembered by - if its con-
struction is ever completed.
Located between the Union and
the Administration Bldg., the po-
tential fountain has been a major
headache to Union officials for
months.
Originally scheduled to be com-
pleted in time for commencement
last June, according to Union
General Manager Frank C. Kuen-

But satisfaction still was not to

Kuenzel explained would burst
during the first winter.
Chisels Attack
So, this summer, men with chis-
els attacked the atomic bubbler,
breaking up the blisters, preparing
to make additional repairs.
Then, at a meeting early this
week, it was decided the contrac-
tor would put a new cement man
on the job to do the work over
again.
