Janowitz Defends Stevenson
On End-Draft Suggestions

Calls- Recent
Predicts Conscription
Will End by 1961
Prof. Morris Janowitz of the
; sociology department yesterday de-
fended Adlai Stevenson's recent
statements on a possible end to
the military. draft.
Answering questions from an
audience of more than 100 at a
Students for Stevenson meeting,
the Democratic candidate for the
Michigan House of Representatives
declared that Stevenson was "sin-
cere" and "was not trying to sell
a cheap package"
America's armed forces are un-
dergoing "a transformation in the
uses of manpower," Prof. Janowitz
commented, and he predicted that
within five years the draft would
be brought to an end.
'Short-Service Reserve'
He offered his personal opinion
that "gradual changes to a short-
service local' reserve and a profes-
sional overseas army" would some-
day permit abolition of the draft
"without cutting down our over-
seas committments."
In presenting the Democratic
case before the semester's organi-
zational meeting of the club, Prof.
Janowitz described farm price
parity as primarily a "moral issue"
and only secondarily an economic
one. He expressed the belief gov-
ernment should take steps to pro-
tect farmers who had contributed
to the war ,effort by greatly in-
creasing production and now face
lower prices.
' Use Farm Surpluses'
He said the nation should "make
use of our farm surpluses in a
meaningful way."
Prof, Janowitz described the
Suez crisis as "perhaps aa deeply.

Eisenhower Intention:
'Fight Wholeheartedly'
WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower, stepping
up his schedule of campaign
speeches, said yesterday he be-
lieved in fighting any battle whole-
heartedly-and with the thought
there is always "a chance to lose
He made the statement in turn-

tion as to whether he was getting

son "may be a closer race than
you anticipated."
"I have not anticipated any-
thing," President Eisenhower re-
plied with some force. "I believe
that when you are in any contest
you should work like there is-to
the very last minute-a chance to
lose it."
"This is battle, this is politics.
this is anything," he went on. "So
I just see no excuse, if you believe
anything enough, for not putting
your whole heart into it. It is what
I do."
Not Pessemistic
However.President Eisenhower
did not sound at all pessimistic.
Nor did the sum total of his re-
marks on the campaign sound as
though he were "running scared,"
despite his statement about the
possibility of losing.
President Eisenhower said he
had talked Wednesday night to his
hard-campaigning running mate,
Vice President Richard M. Nixon,
and Nixon "seemed to be highly
pleased with what he encountered."
As for the odds of his being re-
elected, President Eisenhower men-
tioned this indirectly in comment
on a statement by Dean Acheson,
secretary of state in the Truman
administration, that the Eisen-
hower administration "seemed to
be playing Russian roulette with
an atomic pistol."
Rather tartly, President Eisen-
hower said:
"If this campaign were going
to be settled on the basis of mis-
leading wisecracks, why, I would
think the betting would be very
considerably different than it
would be if it is settled just on
facts and on the record."

Stevenson Compares
Ike's Rule To 'Rome'
ST. LOUIS (A')-Adlai Stevenson
compared the Republican cam-
paign last night with the "Bread
and circuses" which the Roman
emperors used to keep the people
contented. He predicted the Re-
publicans won't be any, more suc-
cessful than the Romans were.
The Democratic presidential
nominee flew here to deliver an-
other "give 'em hell speech" after
telling a crowd at Kansas City,
Kan., earlier in the day that the
Democrats favor taking the coun-
try away from General Motors and
"turning it back to Joe Smith."
Stevenson said the Republicans
are trying "with movies, jeeps,
girls and gadgets of all kinds" to
sell the Eisenhower-Nixon ticket
again "to a docile, complacent
carefree people, all happily chant-
ing: 'Peace, prosperity and pro-
gress, ain't it wonderfull!"
Ride in Motorcade
Stevenson's speech was prepared
for delivery a.t the Missouri
Theater here, after the candidate
rode in a motorcade through the
Mid-America Jubilee grounds at
the riverfront on the way from
the airport to his hotel.
"You remember," S t e v e n so n
said, "how the Roman emperors
in their declining years tried to
keep the uneasy populace satisfied
and their minds off their troubles
with food and games, gladiatorial
-combat and spectacles.
Didn't Save Rome
. . Well, 'bread and circuses'
didn't save Rome, and it won't,
save the Republicans either!"
In probably the sharpest attackl
he has yet delivered against the
Eisenhower regime, Stevenson said
-quoting a remark he attributed
to a neorganizer of the Republican
National Convention-the opposi-
tion party seems to think of poli-
tics "as moving closer to show
"It certainly is, as they present
it,-balloons, not arguments, the
chorus line, not the political is-
"Don't think, just feel -- feel
its all fine and the product is
splendid. Pour out the money peri-I
od. Forget that mushroom cloud.j
Don't mention Suez. The worldj
stops at the waterfront."

Khrushchev Returns
From Yugoslav Stay
BELGRADE, Yugoslavia (A')-
President Tito surprised Western
capitals yesterday by flying to the
Soviet Union with Soviet Commu-
nist party leader Nikita Khrush-
The trip was officially described
as a vacation. There was a wide-
spread belief the real purpose was
to continue talks on the future
role that Yugoslavia will play in
relations with other East Europe-
an Communist parties.
Khrushchev arrived unexpected-
ly in Belgrade Sept. 19 on a visit
Ialso described as a vacation. Tito
and the Russian leader spent
several days talking privately. The
main subject was generally be-
lieved to be Tito's independent
brand of communism.
Indication of Inconclusion
The fact Tito returned to Russia
with Khrushchev was taken as an
indication their eight-day talks at
Belgrade were not conclusive.
There was speculation the conver-
sations had reached a.point where
the Russian needed to consult his
Kremlin colleagues.
The official Yugoslav news
agency Tanjug, reporting the Tito-
Khrushchev party left on a special
Soviet plane, said the party will
spend several days resting.
The Soviet news agency Tass
reported in Moscow that Tito and
Khrushchev arrived Thursday
night on the Black Sea coast.
Soviet Premier Nikolai Bulganin
and Foreign Minister Dmitri Shep-
ilov have been vacationing for sev-
eral days at Sochi, a Black Sea
resort town.
