Hungarians Push
Toward Austria
Thousands of Casualties Reported
As Rebels Gain Over Soviet Forces
VIENNA (A)-Budapest's anti-Red revolution blazed across west-
ern Hungary today to the borders of Austria on a widening panorama
of reeking war and death.
Anti-Red Ilungarians also were reported gaining against Soviet-
led armed force in south Hungary.
Casualties mounted into .many uncounted thousands.
The rebels fought through a fourth straight night, rejecting the
Hungarian Communist regime's latest ultimatum to down arms or die.
Some Russian tanks were reported to have joined the rebel side
in Budapest.
The situation outside flaming Budapest was roughly this:

To Ask For,
More Money,
Requests for appropriations to-
taling almost $38,000,000 were ap-
proved yesterday by the Regents
to be submitted to the State Legis-
lature'in the University's x1957-58
Largest single request was a
$34,121,458 general funds budget
which represents more than a $6,-
500,000 increase over the actual
sum granted by the Legislature
for the current academic year.
Reasons cited for the larger
general funds requests were need
for additional teaching staff to
handle a larger student . body,
staff salary and wage increases
to correspond with those other
economic groups and increased,
merit and promotion funds.
Eight other requests for appro-
priations were also approved at
the Regents' regular October
. Requested for Flint College was
$384,000 and for research and ser-
vices in the utilization of human
resources, $734,000. The Great
Lakes Research Institute was
slated for a $100,000 request, while
$200,000 was requested to set up
a research and service program in
aiding small business in Michigan.
The University will also request
the following appropriations be
included in the Legislature's men-
tal health bill: Neuropsychiatric
Institute, $833,399; Mental Health
Research Unit, $316,943; Child-
ren's Psychiatric Hospital, $1,083,-
158; Veteran's Readjustment Cen-
ter, $405,121.
The Regents intend to later
make public details on the re-
In other action yesterday, the
Regents also approved the award-
ing of contracts for the 1200-resi-
dent women's dormitory, expected
to be ready for occupancy in the
fall of 1958.
The dormitory, to be financed
by revenue bonds paid for out of
income from the University's
residence halls, is expected to cost
approximately $6,200,000.
The Regents also approved the
development of an Institute of
Labor and Industrial Relations
and appropriated $35,000 from
general funds in order to finance
its development for the rest of the
1956-57 year.

predicted the Russians would try
to storm Gyoer later today.
A Hungarian doctor appearing

Estimate of Expense
Ann Arbor City Council las'
night approved a proposal fo
Parke, Davis & Co. to pay $45,88
for sanitary sewage and wate
facility expenses in the establish
ment of a $10,000,000 medical-
pharmaceutical research labora-
tory on North Campus,
Settlement of negotiations be
tween the University, Parke, Davis
and city officials is contingent onl
on University approval of Cit
Council's estimate of the Univer-
sity's portion of share-the-cos
water and sewage expenses.
According to Mayor William E
Brown, Jr., who conferred witi
Parke, Davis officials prior to the
meeting, "The Council is optimistic
about settling transactions with
the company and University offi-
cials within a few days."
Cost Split Difficulties
Difficulties arose during the
summer over. how the $1,230,000
water and sewage bill would be
split among the University, which
owns the land, Parke, Davis which
has an option on the land, and the
city, which is in charge of facilities
for the North Campus area.
A proposal for the University to
pay "between 40 and 50 per cent
of the $1,000,000 water installatior
costs and around $100,000 of the
$230,000.sanitary sewage bill will
be submitted to the University for
approval very soon," City Adminis-
trator Guy Larcom said.
The University reportedly is
ready to accept "41 per cent of the
water installation expenses."
City Expenditure
Should the University. agree to
the proposal, the remaining por-
tion to be borne by the city would
be in excess of $650,000.
The figure finally decided upon
for Parke, Davis' share is less than
half the amount previously . re-
quested by the city. Council offi-
cials decided to pay part of Parke,
Davis' share "if such action is
deemed necessary to insure the
company's locating at North Cam-
City Council's action in the
Parke, Davis' transaction is part of
Mayor Brown's proposed $11,353,-
000 capital improvement program
for Ann Arbor.
In discussing the Parke, Davis'
settlement, councilmen referred to
it as "The first in a possibly large
series of research-development
projects in Ann Arbor."
Such developments as a Bendix

Boulding riticizes
Ieke Adlai on Farms
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first in a series of articles of comment
on election issues by members of the University faculty. The following
article discusses the problems of agriculture.)
Prof. Kenneth Boulding of the economics department sees the
past four years in agriculture - described by Democrats as a "de-
pression", by Republicans as a "readjustment" - as. a "noticeable"
but "moderate" decline in income and number of farm producers.
He yesterday described the agricultural policies of the Eisenhower
Administration as "pretty much of a continuation" of the Demo-
crats', and said they "certainly cushioned the agricultural decline.
There's been a good deal of continuity, and price supports on the
whole have been pretty close to 90 per cent of parity."
As between Adlai Stevenson's espousal of a return to high, rigid
price supports and President Dwight D. Eisenhower's continued back-
ing of a flexible support level, Prof. Boulding called the former "the
wrong answer" and the latter "an inadequate answer."
As the agricultural economist analyzes "the farm problem",
farmers themselves are the "principal surplus." Present demand for
agricultural commodities does not justify the number of persons now
producing them, and the problem is: "how do you organize an orderly
withdrawal from agriculture?"
Lower income in agriculture - especially in relation to other
occupations --- has been "moving people out of agriculture, but not
quite fast enough," he continued. By slightly lowering price supports
under the flexible program, the Administration has helped accelerate
this movement, and in that sense it "sees the problem better than
the Democrats."
Unfortunately, he added, forcing people out of an industry which
can't support them is "painful for those who have to move."
While he criticizes the Eisenhower program both for its "pain-
fulness' and its "inadequacy" in reducing the surplus of farmers,
Prof. Boulding describes the Democratic plan for rigid 90 per cent
of parity price supports as "appalling nonsense."
Parity is a Department of Agriculture figure for "fair" prices
based on the relation between farm costs and prices in a base period,
in most cases 1909-1914.
Lowered costs, Prof. Boulding contends, have made the parity
formula "completely obsolete in many commodities. Society doesn't
benefit from any improvements in agricultural technology," which
has grown at a faster rate than technology in many industries. Com-
modities now produced more easily - absolutely and relatively -
are supported at a level intended to give them pre-World War I pur-
chasing power in terms of manufactured goods.
By stimulating production above what consumers currently de-
mand, the price support program creates surpluses in supported
crops. The result, he contended, is a wasteful application 'of resources
to those commodities which are supported vis-a-vis other farm pro-
ducts and other economic pursuits.
Price supports, he added, do little "to help the one-and-a-half
million farmers who are really poor, because they have little to sell."
In attempting to help agriculture, "we help the rich more than
the poor. What we need is a poverty policy, not a farm policy."
And for the specific problem of agriculture, Prof. Boulding rec-
ommends "a somewhat more positive program" than either party is
now supporting, one designed at "helping" - rather than forcing-
people to get out of agriculture.

Huber House became unexpect-

night as a pitched water battle
raged on South Quad's eighth
The battle erupted after Taylor
men had left the rope, estimated
at more than 100 pounds, in the
Huber-Gomberg dining room aft-
er their afternoon practice. With-
in minutes, the rope was missing,

Last-minute negotiations be-.
tween sides failed amid shouting
and wastebasket-pounding, as Hu-
ber men set up their defenses in
a janitor's closet equipped with a
faucet and hose for quick refilling
of wastebaskets. Gomberg based
its operations in the corner show-
er room.
The battle was brief. Truce
teams composed of resident ad-
visers and staffmen called a halt
to the fighting, but not before
a senior staff official of Huber
House was accidentally drenched.
The only possible cause of dam-
age in the skirmish was the inch-
and-a-half to two inches of water
left standing in the corridor.
A minor cascade of water
dropped the stairs to the seventh
floor. General concensus indicated
no damage would be caused to
Quad property.
The rope, forgotten in the
battle, was never found.
Huber has announced that the
possession of the rope will be re-
linquished to Gomberg and Tay-
lor at 8:30 a.m. this morning.

Minnesota, whichbhas' captured
the Jug only once in the past 13
years, is currently resting in the
fourth spot in the Big Ten, sport-
ing a 2-0-1 Conference and 3-0-1
overall record.
The Wolverines are a step be-
hind the Gophers with a 1-1 Con-
ference mark. A win by the Goph-
ers today could possibly mean some
post-season fun for them.
Although fair weather is ex-
pected for today's tussle, Michigan
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan showed
some concern at yesterday's prac-
tice when he glanced at the dark,
damp skies. Rain, the great equal-
izer, would not be a welcome sight
to the favored Maize and Blue.
An unusual amount of precipi-
tation could also prevent the on-
lookers from viewing a two-sided
