President's New Decision Extends
Sanctuary To 21,500 Hungarians
AUGUSTA, Ga. (/P)-President Dwight D. Eisenhower shredded
red tape yesterday and ordered 21,500 Hungarian refugees from
Soviet terror admitted to the United States.
The original plan offered asylum to only 5,000.
In announcing the big increase at the President's vacation head-
quarters, the White House said the greater number "will be brought
here with the utmost practicable speed" under an emergency program.
President Eisenhower will ask Congress in January to take longer
range action.
The President's move-to "give practical effect to the American
people's intense desire to help" the victims of Soviet oppression-came

Democratic
Committee
Meets Here
By PETER ECKSTEIN
The Democratic Party is taking
a look in the mirror here this
weekend and' generally liking what
it sees.
And for what it doesn't like,
the Advisory Committee on Po-
litical Organization of the Dem-
ocratic National Committee is
suggesting means of correction.
According to the group's chair-
man, Michigan State Chairman
Neil Staebler of Ann Arbor, the
major problem facing the com-
mittee is trying to bring national
issues home to voters.
He hopes the committee meet-
ing Friday, yesterday and today
in the Union, will contribute to
solving the problem by recom-
mending "new responsibilities"
for the National Committee, and
"higher degree of cooperation"
between the state and national
organizations and among the
state organizations themselves.
'Stronger Than GOP'
But, according to another
spokesman for the advisory group,
the party is stronger than the
Republicans "and we intend that
it will be even stronger" for 1958
and 1960. "We're in a formidable
position" for elections in those
years, he added.
"It's indicative of the general
party outlook and morale," the
spokesman said, that "the process
of planning for the next two and
four years" is beginning within
a month after the last election.
Results of that election he
termed a "party victory" for the
Democrats, inasmuch as "party
candidates at every level other
than the Presidency won as well
as they did."
The Advisory committee, gene-
rally "not drawn from party
brass," will conclude its day-long
deliberations today and then re-
port to National Chairman Paul
Butler. Butler himself attended
the first day's meetings Friday
in the Union's Bates Room.,
National Voice Needed
Another party organ, the new
committee set up this week to
advise the Democrats on national
legislation, Staebler called a par-
tial solution to the problem of
providing "a national voice for
the party which doesn't have the
Presidency." Although he refused
to predict the group's chairman,
Staebler did anticipate both But-
ler and defeated Presidential can-
didate Adlai E. Stevenson would
be members of the body.
Another representative of the
organizational committee said both
it and the legislative group
"might be indicative of trends"
in the party system. "Unless a
party is examining itself," he
added, "what happens to it is
more by chance than by design."

-was he waited the arrival tomorrow
of Secretary of State John Foster
Dulles for a review of the still
tense Middle East situation and
the world picture generally.
Arrives Today
Secretary Dulles will fly to
Augusta today from Key West,
Fla., where he has been recuperat-
ing from a Nov. 3 operation for
intestinal cancer.
He plans to return to his Wash-
ington desk tomorrow and will
leave next weekend for a North
Atlantic Treay Organization meet-
ing in Paris.
Even as the President hiked the
Hungarian refugee quota by 16,500,
the government hinted there may
be still another increase later.
"When these numbers have
been exhausted, the situation will
be re-axamined," a White House
statement said.
Expanded Program
It added that the expanded pro-
gram approved by President Eisen-
hower today will "materially assist
the government of Austria, which
has responded so generously to the
refugees' needs, to carry out its
policy of political asylum."
Only about 6,500 of the 21,500 to
be offered asylum in this country
can be brought in under the Refu-
gee Relief Act, which expires Dec.
31.
The other 15,000 will be admit-
ted as "parolees" under the gen-
eral immigration and nationality
act, known as the McCarran-Wal-
ter Law. It gives the Attorney
General discretion to admit refu-
gees for an indefinite period when
he finds such action in the public
interest.
SGC Board
In Review
To Convene
' By TAMMY MORRISON
Student Government Council's
Board in Review will meet at 10:30
a.m. today in the Union to discuss
the Council's recent refusal to let
Galens hold a campus bucket drive
next Friday ad Saturday.
As yet, the Board's reason for
meeting is unclear. Under the SGC
plan, it meets if a Council action
is outside SGC's jurisdiction or in
conflict with regental or admin-
1 istrative policies.
At its meeting, the Board will
first decide whether SGC's action
fulfills either of the two require-
ments. If so, it will then review
the action.
Dean of Men Walter B. Rea re-
quested the meeting Thursday
after talking with Galens Presi-
dent Bob Kretzschmar, '57M.
Kretzschmar appeared before the
Council Wednesday to request per-
mission to hold the annual drive,
conducted to raise funds for the
children's school at University
Hospital.
The Council denied permission
on grounds that a December Ga-
lens drive would defeat the con-
cept of a unified Campus Chest
drive, to be held next spring, Ga-
lens had previously been guaran-!
teed $7,000, the amount it usually
collects, by the Campus Chest
Board.
The Senior medical honorary
asked to be allowed to hold the!
campus drive becauseit had not
yet had time to confer with faculty
and alumni on the question of
joining with Campus Chest. Kretz-
schmar also said the Society felt
there would be loss of public re-
lations and public education if it
joined Campus Chest.

Hardships
Prophesied
In Hungary
Solution Far Distant;
Inflation Threatens
BUDAPEST, Hungary OP)-The
Soviet-supported Hungarian Com-
munist government warned the
people yesterday this will be a
grim winter of chaos and suffer-
ing.
Only if workers end their pas-
sive resistance and return to their
jobs can the future be more prom-
ising, the official radio and press
declared.
Situation Grim
The government of Premier Ja-
nos Kadar admitted that the situ-
ation remains grim nearly six
weeks after revolution which was
crushed by Russian tanks and in-
fantry,
"We must be blind," said the
party newspaper Nepszabadsag in
an article broadcast by the Buda-
pest radio, "if we do not realze
that a solution of our present situ-
ation is still far distant."
The party paper and radio ad-
mitted what tens of thousands in
Budapest know:
'Thousands Freezing',
"Thousands of our people are
freezing and without roofs over
their heads. Winter is approaching
and we don't know whether we
will have heat even for our hos-
pitals, schools and homes. Infla-
tion threatens. Our factories are
ready to operate but they don't
have enough coal."
Budapest became a little more
lively today when about 30 of the
~capital's 100 movie houses re-
opened. Many of them show films
made in Western countries.
Standing in line is the main
occupation of Budapesters. They
have to stand in line for food, fuel,
textiles and almost everything
else.
United Nations
Will Discuss
Hungary Issue
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. ()-
The United Nations announced
last night the General Assembly
will debate the Hungarian question
tomorrow at the request of the
States.
A source close to the United
Statesdelegation toldaereporter
the United States and perhaps 10
other countries will introduce a
resolution urging the Communist
Budapest government to let UN
political observers into Hungary.
Cuban Delegate Emilio Nunez-
Portundo declared that if Hun-
gary does not let in observers he
will submit a resolution, perhaps
Tuesday, to expel the Hungarian
delegation from the Assembly.
United Nations Secretary Gen-
eral Dag Hammarskjold has been
trying snce early November to get
observers into Hungary or to go
there himself. His latest request
was delivered in Budapest Thurs-
day.
Refugees on Way
CAMP KILMER, N. J. (')-A

Lack Of Oil
Means Cold,
Hard Winter
Britain Discourages
Optimism Over Aid
LONDON OP)-A wave of fuel
and food hoardings swept over
Western Europe yesterday.
Reduced oil supplies spread fear
of a cold and costly winter.
Promise of a bigger flow of oil
from the United States cast some
cheer in the general gloom, but
officials cautioned against too
much optimism.
"It will be well into the new
year before the effect can be felt,"
said Britain's Ministry of Fuel
and Power. "Even then Britain
will be getting only about 75 per
cent of her normal petroleum
supplies."
The American plan is to boost
shipments of U.S. oil to Europe
to about 500,000 barrels a day,
starting this month.
American officials in France
and Britain said much U.S.-owned
oil is still reaching Europe through
a pipeline across Syria from Saudi
Arabia and hinted the Arabs
could cut this if they got the im-
pression the United States was
cooperating with what the Arabs
call "British-French aggression"
in Egypt.
With gasoline rationing due to
begin in Britain Dec. 17, the Auto-
mobile Association described the
scramble for gasoline as a "crazy
pump-crawling merry-go-round."
Filling stations continued to
limit customers to one to three
gallons, but a motorist could go
from place to place.
Grocers reported extra heavy
buying, particularly of canned
foods. They said consumers had
the idea that gasoline shortages
and rationing would cut down de-
liveries and even stocks.
'Phony' Crisis
Worries U.S.
WASHINGTON (A)-State De-I
partment officials are deeply con-
cerned lest a new Middle East ex-
plosion be set off by an essentially
"phony" crisis between Syria and
Iraq.
Authorities here were surprised
by Syria's call yesterday for United
Nations protection against "pre-
paration for armed aggression"
by Turkey, Israel, Britain and
France.
Officials here said they have
heard of no such preparatiops, do!
not believe they are in the making
and think that unless some one
gets panicked by propaganda war
jitters there is no real danger of
conflict in the area.
One of the puzzles about the ap-
peal by Syrian Foreign Minister
Salah Bitar t the UN is that it
did not mention Iraq, which has
been a target of Syrian and Soviet
propaganda in the last few days.
Charges have been flying thick
and fast for more than a week
from both sides.!

Iraqi Ruler
Cuts Politics
Temporariy
Suspension Designed
To Prevent Debating
Middle East Crisis
BAGHDAD, Iraq ()-A royal
decree yesterday suspended Par.
liament for a month, freezing all
political activity in Iraq.
The decree was issued by King
Faisal II only .a few hours after
a newly convened Par1iament
heard the young monarch say all
of Iraq is under martial law.
Parliament had opened with its
usual pomp. The effect of the de-
cree, issued at the request of Pre-
mier Said, is to stave off debate
by deputies on the current Middle
East crisis.
Breathing Spell
Said's government now has a
breathing spell In which to wait
and hope for a calmer Middle
East atmosphere.
In the traditional speech from
the throne-written and presented
to the King by Said-Faisal told
deputies martial law was pro-
claimed to protect the rear lines
of the army while it prepares to
take part with Jordan in the
"common defense of the Arab
states."
The action by the throne at the
behest of the government came
at a moment when this contry.is
increasingly concerned with the
activities of Syria.
The local press in Baghdad re-
ports that Communist elements
in Damascus are moving toward
a position of control,
Violent Radio Attack
At the same time, Damascus
radio attacks on the Iraq govern-
ment are becoming more violent.
In view of all this, special sinf-
icance is being attached here to
portions of 'the throne speech
which 'spoke of "beloved Egypt."
The words, spoken for the govern-
ment, were obviously , aimed at
calling the Arab nationalist feel-
ings of the populace.
All dispatches from Baghdad
are subject to censorship. Damas-
cus radio has reported the arrest
of several opposition leaders in
Baghdad after they asked the
King to dismiss Said and pull Iraq
out of the Baghdad Pact.
Syrian broadcasts have been
filled with propaganda blasts at
Iraq, and it is difficult to sift out
what is propaganda and what is
actual news.
Soviet Threat.
Unites West
After Split
LONDON M) - The Western
powers closed -ranks last night
to counter the threat of a new'
Communist coup in the Middle
East arising from the situation in
Syria.
That Arab nation is reported
receiving Soviet arms and under
the growing influence of army
leaders with Soviet leanings.
Britain and France prepared
their peoples for formal announce-
ments tomorrow of a quick and
large-scale withdrawal of their

military forces in Egypt.
President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower's dramatic offer of oil for
Western Europe checked a rising
tide of anti-American feeling in
both countries.
Fresh efforts to heal the breach
between the United States and her
Major Western allies were launch-
ed against the background of
alarm over the future of Syria and
concern for the stability of Prime
Minister Nuri Said's friendly gov-
ernment in Iraq.
The Soviet Union, clearly acting
to preserve friendships in the Arab
world, put out a formal denial of
reports that they have offered to
sell auantities ,of npfrolprm' to

all previous experience, put on a
masterful exhibition of how to
play the position.
Although he was a little shaky
at times with his passing, his
shooting and aggressiveness left
little to beadesired. With set shots,
driving lay-ups and tip-ins, the
6' 3" sophomore led the team scor-
ing with 26 points.
Right behind him was the steady
Burton with 24 tallies. The husky
forward was the smoothest look-
ing player on the Wolverine squad.
The Wolverines had no real
trouble in defeating Deleware, but
they just couldn't open up a wide
margin on the eastern visitors.
One of the reasons was Blue Hen
guard Jim Smith.
Smith racked up 26 points
against Michigan with what is
known as a "natural" shooting eye.
Every time the 5' 11" redhead
threw the ball, it seemed to go
in. He made baskets from every
possible position.
Only near the end of the con-
test did Delaware appear to be
threatening, but even then Michi-
gan managed to widen the margin
enough so that the gap was never
really closed.
With about four and a half
minutes to play, -the Blue Hens
came within five points, 60-65, but
