VOL. LXVII No.11 ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN, SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1956
Stating that the academic staff is always in the best position to
know the needs of its departments and schools, as well as the edu-
cational needs of society, University President-Emeritus Alexander
Ruthven yesterday recommended the establishment of a study and
j dvisory committee on state-supported colleges and universities.
The committees, as proposed before the 39th annual meeting of
the University Press Club of Michigan, would consist of approximately
17 members, nine of them from the academic staffs of the state-
Other members would be chosen equally from the Legislature and
the state at-large.
To Enlighten Legislators
Ruthven made his suggestion in order to aid

* BELGRADE, Yugoslavia ( )- -
Top Yugoslav Communists said
yesterday President Joseph Broz
Tito is in the Soviet Union to help
strengthen Nikita S. Khrushchev's
hand-but not to the point of sac-
rificing Yugoslav independence.
Khrushchev, the Soviet Commu-
hist party boss, is reported at odds
with old Stalinists in the Krem-
lin who think he has gone too far
in downgrading Stalin.
Dulles Warns Tito
Communist sources said Tito's
aid to Khrushchev would not ex-
tend to the point of sacrificing
Yugoslav independence in the
fields of foreign relations, eco-
nomic matters and party affairs.
Informed sources say Tito has
received a strong warning from
U. S. Secretary of States John
Foster Dulles that signs of Tito's
possible return to the Soviet camp
might jeopardize further American
aid to Yugoslavia.
There was no immediate con-
firmation or denial by the U. S.
State Department in Washington
cf such warning.
Tito and Khrushchev are at the
latter's villa at Yalta on the Black
Sea. Khrushchev came to Yugo-

Branko Draskovic, spokesman
for Tito's Foreign Office, told re-
porters in the Yugoslav capital
today that Tito and Khrushchev
held political talks "of an infor-
mal character" and with free ex-
change of opinions.
Critize Stalin Degradation
Belgrade radio quoted Drasko-
vic as saying Yugoslavia knew
about circulation of a letter sent
to Soviet satellite countries warn-
ing them against embracing
"Titoism" too wholeheartedly.
Old time Bolsheviks - among
them Lazar Kagtnovich and for-
mer Foreign Minister V. M. Mo-
lotov-were said to be opposing

With the increasing number of
students and attendant problems,
Ruthven said, "presidents and
their representatives find it hard-
er to explain succinctly the needs
of their schools to those whose
study of them is, for the most
part, limited to the period when
the Legislature is in session.
"Individual institutions," he
added, "are not in a position to
provide information which is only
to be had through over-all de-
tailed and continuing studies of
the educational programs of all
of the schools."

Ike's Brother Drew
Basis of Latin Plans
WASHINGTON P) - Secretary
of State John Foster Dulles said
yesterday recommendations Mil-
ton Eisenhower made in 1953 have
"constituted the basis of our policy
toward Latin America."y
But Dulles described as "com-
pletely untrue" Adlai E. Steven-
son's charge this week that Presi-
dent Dwight D. Eisenhower's
brother had "assumed special, if
informal, responsibility for our
relationship with Argentina."
"That responsibility has been
borne by me and by my associ-
ates in the Department of State,"
Dulles said in a 1,300-word memo-
randum made public by the White
President Eisenhower told hisj
news conference Thursday he had
asked for the full report on his
brother's connections with the
State Department and said then
Milton Eisenhower had never had
a hand in making foreign policy.'
Replies to Stevenson
Stevenson, the Democratic nom-
inee for president, told a Miami,
Fla., campaign audience Tuesday
night the Eisenhower government's
policy in Argentina was a "dis-
mal example" of its activities else-
where in Latin America and in
other areas of the world.
Stevenson also accused the ad-
ministration of appeasing Argen-
tine dictator Juan Peron, saying
that U.S. Ambassador Albert Nufer
was kept at his post in Argentina
because "Peron liked him." Nufer
was transferred to Manila as
United States ambassador to the
Philippines, shortly after over-
throw of the Peron regime a year
Twice before, Stevenson ' s
charges had been denied officially'
at news conferences by both Dul-
les and President Eisenhower.
In the memorandum, Dulles said
Stevenson's statement that Mil-
ton Eisenhower assumed special
responsibility for relations with Ar-
gentina "is completely untrue."
He did not mention Stevenson by
name, but referred to him as "one

World News Roundup
By The Associated Press
Supreme Court Appointee ..
Joseph Brennan Jr., New Jersey jurist and a Democrat, was!
chosen by President Dwight D. Eisenhower yesterday to succeed As-
sociate Justice Sherman Minton on the Supreme Court.
Minton, a Democrat from Indiana, is retiring Oct. 15, five days
in advance of his 66th birthday, because of failing health.
Brenan's selection, if confirmed by the Senate whent Congress
convenes in January, would leave the high court's political lineup
unchanged at six Democrats and three Republicans. Although a
registered Democrat, Brennan told reporters he never has taken an
active part in politics.
Nicaraguan President . .
President Anastasio Somoza of Nicaragua, a colorful and turbu-
lent figure in Central American politics for the last 20 years, died
yesterday of an assassin's bullets.
He had been ruler, in name or in fact, of his country of more
than a million people since 1936.
Southwestern Drought . .
Everywhere in the Southwest yesterday the cry was for rain
while farmers and ranchers stagger under what some experts have
termed the worst drought since the vast region was settled.
In Texas, Arizona, Oklahoma and New Mexico, ranchers are
selling their livestock,. sometimes including their breeding herds, be-
cause there is no feed for them.
In this great wheat area, which also includes Colorado and Kan-
sas, farmers are "dusting in" their seed and hoping enough rain will
fall to bring up the crop.

Four touchdowns in an impressive first half was yesterday'a,

and satisfying 42-13 victory over UCLA in the Michigan Stadium.

Similar to Last Year
The relatively easy win was quite similar to last year's opener
against Missouri in which Michigan romped, 42-7. But there were
several differences that were particular noteworthy.

pass receiving of All-American end Ron Kramer. But it was Michigan's
potent running attack, featuring*

"This concept Is familiar to the
