Soviets Threaten
Action in Egypt
Mentions Use of 'Rocket Weapons;'
1 Proposes Joint Action With U.S.
MOSCOW (R)-Soviet Russia served notice yesterday it is pre-
pared to use force to bring about an end to British and French actions
against Egypt.
Premier Nikolai Bulganin warned the two powers invading Egypt
that they face the risk of attack by a stronger power capable of launch-
Ing "rocket weapons" if they do not end the hostilities.
Pool Armed Might
Bulganin proposed to President Dwight D. Eisenhower that the
Soviet Union and the United States, the major H-bomb powers, pool

Democrats, Republicans Predict
Victories For Their Candidates
By The Associated Press
The campaign oratory faded away yesterday and it was left up to
free Americans to decide today who shall lead them through the next
four years in a newly troubled world.
Republicans counted, with every sign of confidence, on another
sweep for President Dwight D. Eisenhower who four years ago won
the electoral votes in 39 states.
Democrats looked hopefully for "another 1948," when they
captured the presidency in the face of what looked like overwhelming
odds. They figured their man AdlaiT w

Crush Rebel
VIENNA (.)-The Russians used
guns, pleas and threats against
rebel holdouts yesterday in an
effort to snuff out the last breath
of Hungary's freedom.
A new battle was reported shap-
ing up at Dunapentele, in vhe
Danube valley south of Budapest,
as surviving rebels appeared gen-
erally to ignore a broadcast Soviet
ultimatum demanding surrender
by 6 p.m. (11 a.m. CST) under
threat of courtmartial.
Remnants of the freedom fight-
ers, decimated by the Soviet at-
tacks Sunday which put most of
the country again under the
Kremlin's thumb, fought on in
isolated actions.
Denied the material help for
which they had begged the West,
they were in most cases so cut off
that not even Western words of
sympathy could reach them.
"They have stood their ground
with honor against the Russian
troops," said rebel Radio Rakoczy
in pinpointing industrial Csepel
Island, in the Danube just south
of Budapest; the city of Kecske-
met, 50 miles southeast of Buda-
pest, as center of continued fight-
But the situation is "growing
desperate," it said. "Very little
ammunition is left." It reported
some hospitals were burning and
asked, in a message relayed by
Radio Free Europe in Munich, for
help from the International Red
Cross in Switzerland.
"Some Russian units marching
on the capital have been encircled
by us," said Radio Rakoczy. "In
many places they have built barri-
cades along the road. Desperate
? fighting is going on."
Whereabouts of the station, per-
haps a portable transmitter, was
unknown to Western listeners.
Rakoczy was a patriot who fought
for Hungary's freedom from the
At dusk the station came on the
air again:
"Here is Radio Rakoczy speak-
ing. According to couriers, the
Russian troops at Dunadolvar are
preparing an attack on Dunapen-
tele. Armored formations are ap-
proaching Dunapentele from Szek-
esfehevar, Budapest and Dunafol-
dvar. We request urgent help for
imperiled Dunapentele!"
The bulk of the countryside was
obviously in Russian hands.

In New York, the Soviet Union
pressed the Bulganin demands be-

Emergency Cabinet Session
In Paris, Premier Guy Mollet
convened an emergency cabinet

President Eisenhower has made
clear that the United States does
not intend to become involved in
the fighting in Egypt. Washington
officials rejected the Bulganin
proposal, and the White House
declared the Soviet Union has "an
oblgiation before the world" to
withdraw its forces from Hungary
before talking about a Middle East
"We are full of determination
through the use of force to crush

Ike Defends
Needs Time
WASHINGTON (M) - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower said in an
election eve talk yesterday his ad-
ministration has proved it can
keep its promises, but needs more
time to carry out a program of de-
veloping prosperity in this coun-
try and peace everywhere.
Tlie President spoke on a closed
television circuit from the White
. His 10-minute talk was telecast
over a Boston station.
President Eisenhower had
planned to wind up his campaign
in Boston yesterday but said in
his talk that the foreign situation
made such a trip "inadvisable if
not impossible."
The President said that in re-
cent days "many crises" have
tested this country's willingness to
stand on its principles.
He said Americans "sincerely
hope" the people of Hungary can
accept the.20 million dollars worth
of aid this country has offered.
And he said this country re-
joices that Roman Catholic cardi-
nals in Hungary and Poland have
been released from captivity.
In domestic affairs, President
Eisenhower said, the Republicans
need more time to help in the
building of "desperately" needed
schools, in aiding distressed fndus-
trial areas, in building more high-
ways and airports, and in revising
immigration laws.
He called for the election of
Sumner Whittier, Republican can-
didate for governor of Massachu-
setts, and the whole Massachusetts
President Eisenhower spoke
from the White House library.

ment after a four-hour cabinet

Parke, Davis Gives
ova or Split
The biggest financial problem in North Campus development was
settled yesterday at an Ann Arbor City Council meeting as formal
approval of a three-way cost split for water and sewage installation
was given by Parke, Davis & Co., University and City officials.
Installation of water and sanitary sewage facilities for Parke,
Davis' $10,000,000 medical-pharmaceutical research laboratories and
future North Campus expansion will be completed by August 1, 1958
according to the adopted plan.
After six months of negotiations the following division of financial
burden was accepted, (based on a $1,230,000 estimate from an im-
partial engineering firm analysis)..

University will assume 45 per
cent of the water bill and 44 and
one-eighth per cent of the sani-
tary sewage bill.
Parke, Davis & Co. will pay $45,-
880 for both facilities.
Ann Arbor's burden will be
slightly below $635,000 for both
water and sewage.
An additional provision states
"Maximum expense to the Uni-
versity for combined costs of water
and sanitary sewage installation
is not to exceed $450,000."
The city is obligated to guar-
antee the University three million
gallons of water per day. Parke,
Davis will require an additional
521,000 (maximum) gallons daily.
Another step towards exploita-
tion of North Campus area Was
made when City Council voted to
anex 54 acres near the intersec-
tion of Green Rd. and Plymouth
Rd. Bendix Aviation Corporation
has an option on the land and is
interested in establishing a re-
search-development plant.
In other business Mayor William
E. Brown, Jr., appointed a three
man committee to work on his
$11,353,000 capital improvement
Thescouncil also voted approval
of rezoning of six acres on Fuller
St. near Veteran's Memorial Hos-
pital. Under its new zoning re-
strictions a construction company
in that area will be able to build
an apartment house with over 300

Plane Crash
Sees Six Die
A transport plane loaded with Bri-
tons evacuated from the Middle
East crashed and burned near
Blackwater yesterday.
At least six persons were killed.
An official at Blackbushe Air-
port near the crash scene said five
other persons were unaccounted
for. Many were injured.
The official estimated 80 persons
were aboard, 56 women, 17 chil-
dren and one man as passengersI
and a crew of six.
Earlier reports said the plane
carried 64 persons.
The known dead were three
members of the plane crew and
three children.
Most of those aboard were wives
and children of British service-
The four-engine plane, inbound
from Idris airport at Tripoli, Li-
bya, nosed down through mist and
crashed into woods short of the
Blackbushe runway.
Many of those aboard leaped out
before flames enveloped the plane.
Others were pulled free by airfield
rescue teams.

Adlai Fears
Nixon Next
BOSTON (R)-Adlai E. Steven-
son said yesterday that a Repub-
lican victory today would mean
that Vice-President Richard M.
Nixon "would probably be Presi-
dent within the next four years."
"As distasteful as this matter
is," Stevenson declared, "I must
say bluntly that every piece of
scientific evidence we have, everyj
lesson of history and experience,
indicated that a Republican vic-
tory today would mean that Rich-
ard M. Nixon would probably be
President of this country within
the next four years.
"I say frankly, as a citizen morej
than candidate, that I recoil at'
the prospect of Mr. Nixon as cus-
todian of this nation's future, as
guardian of the hydrogen bomb,
as representative of America in
the world, as commander-in-chief
of the United States armed forces.
"Distasteful as it is, this is the
truth, the central truth, about the
most fateful decision the Ameri-
can people have to make tomor-
row. I have full confidence in that
Stevenson sought to raise a
question whether P r e s i d e n t
Dwight D. Eisenhower could live
through another four-year term in
an address over a nationwide
television hookup closing his sec-
ond bid for the presidency.
On the foreign policy front, Ste-
venson said that "tonight we have
seen the culmination of the disas-
trous Eisenhower foreign policy in
the Middle East-with the Com-
munists now proposing that we go
to war with them against Britain
and France."
In Washington a White House
statement yesterday said the pro-
posal of Soviet Premier Nikolai
Bulganin for the United States to
join with Russia in military inter-
vention - backed by the United
Nations - in the war in Egypt is
an "unthinkable suggestion."

Stevenson had come a long way
from his try four years ago.
Find New Arguments
Both sides, while deploring what
has happened in the Middle East
and in Hungary, found in these
grave events new arguments for
election of their candidates.
Today, about 611/2 million voters
will make their choice. Since more
than 80 million are eligible to vote,
this would mean that many won't
even bother.
Those who do vote will also be
deciding which party shall control
Congress the next two years. This
could be close and it may be to-
morrow before the outcome is
As of now, the Democrats are in
a majority in the Senate 49-47.
Democrats control the House 230-
201 with four vacancies. Four years
ago the voters gave President
Eisenhower a Republican Congress
and two years ago they decided
to change back to a Democratic

ing 35 senators.
And in 29 states, the governor-,
ships are at stake.
Adlai in Minnesota
The day before election found
Stevenson campaigning in Minne-
apolis, where he said America's
allies have lost trust in the United
States' leadership.
Stevenson also said that what
he described as President Eisen-
hower's "negligence on questions
of peace and war may plunge the
whole world into the horror of
hydrogen war."
President Eisenhower was at the
White House, having called off an
election eve visit to Boston. In
his office, he talked with Vice-
President Richard M. Nixon about
the Middle East crisis, Russia's
new pounce on Hungary, and
presidential politics.
White House press secretary
James C. Hagerty said Nixon gave
the President a "very optimistic"
report on his chances for re-elec-
tion. Asked whether Nixon had
predicted the Republicans would
win "big," Hagerty said, "Yes,

"involved with Mideast oil."
"An absolute lie," the elder
Hoover saidat New York.
