'U' Receives U.S.
Building Funds
Grant of $1,263,522 To Be Utilized
In Expansion of Health Facilities
The University yesterday was allotted $1,263,522 for construction
of health research facilities and announced it has been promised
matching funds from private foundations.
The allotments, which were the University's share of a $30,000,000
Congressional appropriation made earlier in the year, were announced
yesterday by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare.
University Vice-President Wilbur Pierpont said he was "very
pleased" by the allotments, which asigned $600,000 for the seconid

Italy 'Slaps'
Reds' Face,
Cancels Visa
ROME(IP)-The Italian govern-
ment yesterday dealt a humiliat-
ing diplomatic blow to Russia by
cancelling the entry visa of high-
ranking Mikhail Suslov '"in the
interests of public order."
The slap in the face to Suslov,
a secretary of the Soviet Commu-
nist party, came as he rolled
through Eastern Europe in a train
en route to address the Italian
Communist party's 8th national
congress opening in Rome today.
Refused Permission
The Italian government earlier
had refused permission for Suslov
to land at Rome in a jet-liner
direct from Moscow.
The clear warning to Russia to
keep its fingers out of the Italian
political pie climaxed mounting
anti-soviet feeling in Italy.
Italians were appalled at Soviet
ruthlessness in Hungary. Parades
and anti-Soviet demonstrations
followed the Budapest fighting in
most of Italy's big cities.
Italian diplomats boycotted
Russia's National Day reception
here recently - sending only a
minor protocol official to "sign
the book."
Nationwide Celebration
A nationwide celebration of
"Soviet film week," a return ges-
ture for an Italian film festival
in the Soviet Union, was can-
celled by government order.
Slight, scholarly-appearing 50-
year-old Suslov is rated as the
Kremlin's expert on relations with
Communist parties abroad. There
has been recent speculation that
he visited-Budapest and advised
on suppressing the Hungarian re-
Suslov also is reported to have
been in the faction of Kremlin
leaders which sought to curb So-
viet party boss Nikita Khrush-
chev's rapprochement with Presi-
dent Tito of Yugoslavia.
Weight to Speculation
The decision to send such a
heavyweight to speak at the Ital-
ian party congress lent weight to
speculation that the Soviet is
worriedabout keepingItalian par-
ty chief Palmro Togliatti in line
-and in the anti-Tito camp.
The cancellation of Suslov's en-
try visa was reported by the So-
viet Embassy in Rome. Pressed
for a statement, the Foreign Of-
fice said merely: "It was neces-
sary in the interests of pubic

$605,000 for an addition to the
School of Public Health and $58,-
522 for the completion of labora-
tories in the Kresge Medical Re-
search Building.
Largest Since Depression
Pierpont said the allocation rep-
resented the largest federal grant
to the University for, buildings
since the public works projects of
the Depression era.
The allocation, he reported,
largely met the requests authorized
by the Regents at their Sept. 29
meeting, except that the Univer-
sity had asked $425,000 more than
it received for' the second mental
health unit. The first unit of the
building has already been author-
ized by the state legislature and
will be ready for construction bids
early next year.
Work on the second of the two
units was scheduled to begin "as
soon thereafter as possible," al-
though the lower allocation means
there are not now sufficient funds
for its completion.
Kresge Work To Begin
Construction or the Kresge
laboratories should begin in "the
next few months," Pierpont con-
tinued, while work on the public
health addition is expected to
extend from next summer to
sometime in 1958.
While the University has "been
assured of foundation grants" to
supplement the federal funds, de-
tails will not be revealed pending
a joint announcement by the
foundation of the University.
Ike Foresees
Arms Budget
Rise for 1957
AUGUSTA, Ga. (P)-Secretary
of Defense Charles E. Wilson said
after conferring with President
Dwight D. Eisenhower "it certain-
ly looks" as though military spend-
ing next fiscal year will run high-
er than the 36 billion dollars es-
timated this year.
And Sec. Wilson told reporters
he sees no prospect for "any sub-
stantial change" in the strength
level of the armed forces, now at
2,800,000 men.
Wilson and administration fiscal
experts spent 2/2 hours with Pres-
ident Eisenhower going over near
final Pentagon plans reportedly
calling for about 38 billion dollars
in defense spending in the fiscal
year starting July 1.
The Cabinet officer declined
comment on then38 billion figure,
saying it would not be proper for
him to do so at this stage. The
President's budget for all govern-
ment departments will go to Con-
gress early next month.
Just before the parley got under
way at the Augusta National Golf
Club President Eisenhower re-
marked to Wilson-with a clear
show of irritation-that "leakage"
of defense spending data and mili-
tary manpower plans "is some-
thing that's got to stop."
Asked later whether he and
President Eisenhower had discuss-
ed that matter further, Wilson re-
plied with a wry smile:
"No, I wouldn't bother the Pres-
ident about that. He would think
that is my job."
Wilson has insisted all along
that only non-combat, service-
typn personnel havembeen trimmed
from the United States forces in
Europe. He leaves today for a
ParisNATO meeting wherethe
level of such forces seems certain
to be discussed in the light of the

It will be the first time since
the council was organized in 1946
xthat a country from Eastern Eu-
rope has not occupied one of the
six nonpermanent seats. The So-
viet Union is one of the five per-
manent members.
"Crude Violation"
Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister
Vassily V. Kuzentsov charged the
election was a clear discrimina-
tion against Eastern Europe and a
"crude violation" of the charter
provision for geographical distri-
bution of the nonpermanent seats
on the council.
He said the United States was
using the UN for its own pur-
poses and was violating the Lon-
don gentlemen's agreement of
1946 giving Eastern Europe a seat
on the council.
The United States, whose chief
delegate, Henry Cabot Lodge Jr.
waged a campaign for Manila
from the very start last year, con-
tended the London agreement was
meant for one year only and no
longer was binding.
No Soviet Hold
Actually, the Soviet Union has
not had a hold on this seat since
1950 even though it was occupied
by an Eastern European country.
After the election, Jose Vicente
Trujillo of Ecuador, told the As-
sembly a resolution would be sub-

tain a revised agreement making

anteeing Eastern Europe a seat.

Differences in administration
estimates of the situation appar-
ently are based on different esti-
mates of Europe's need.
While some Administration offi-

not so far done very much about
it other than to agree to try to
get congressional approval to
waive a British payment to the
United States due this month.
No Evidence of Studies
Inquiry at the State Department
produced no evidence of any full-
scale studies there on the Euro-
pean plight looking to the devel-
opment' of long-range aid pro--
grams. This does not mean that
the programs might not be worked
up quickly in the next few weeks..
It does indicate that the grand-
scale concepts being noised about
by some high-level authorities-
have yet to be translated into any
substantial action.
Convinced of Need
Some top State Department of-
ficials are convinced that Britain,1
France, Italy and other European
countries will soon need greater
help than any so far projected.
By contrast, a high Treasury
official said yesterday he sees no
need for any grant aid-outright
gifts-to Europe. He said figures+
on Europe's losses from the reduc-
tion of Middle East oil supplies
had been exaggerated.

Brown stated that he had seri-

He expressed concern over the
possibility that several incumbent

Ann Arbor is in the process of
