Rule of Kremlin
Doomed: Dulles
Tells NATO Members Soviets
Threatened by Internal Weakness
PARIS (?P)-Secretary of State John Foster Dulles yesterday
predicted the eventual collapse of Soviet communism.
He told the free world allies that unswerving loyalty to the United
Nations concept will speed the process.
In an earnest, almost religious address to members of the North
Atlantic Treaty Organization, the secretary said he had "good reason"
to believe that internal pressures are shaking the Kremlin's iron rule.
He declared this provides the world with an historic opportunity for
real and lasting peace.
Exploit Opportunity
To exploit this opportunity, he asserted, the West must nmintain
a spotless moral appeal to the captive but restive peoples of the East,
with staunch adherence to the

Expansion ncqr

*Suez Canal

PARIS (P)-Britain and France
were reported yesterday moving
for a meeting with Egypt to seek
a settlement of the Suez Canal
They were said to be leaning to-
ward Egypt's terms.
. United Nations Secretary Gen-
eral Dag Hammarskjold would sit
in on the conference, possibly in
Geneva. Secretary of State John
Foster Dulles was understood to
be firmly supporting the new
Western approach.
Clear Indications
Britain and France were said
to have given clear indications at
the current NATO meeting in Par-
is they will accept less than the
full international control of the
Canal they have been demanding.
Western diplomats said the
present intention of Britain and
France is to seek a meeting quick-
ly of the British, French and
Egyptian foreign ministers.
Informants said British Foreign
Secretary Selwyn Lloyd and
French Foreign Minister Christian
Pineal are ready to negotiate
with Egyptian Foreign Minister
Mahmoud Fawzi on the basis of:
Six Principles
1. The six principles adopted by
the UN Security Council and
Egypt Oct. 13.
2. Hammarskjold's interpreta-
tion of those principles as spelled
out in a letter to Fawzi Oct. 24.
The six principles are: Freedom
of access to the canal for all na-
tions, respect for Egypt's sover-
eignty, insulation of the canal
from politics, tolls to be fixed by
agreement between Egypt and
users, guarantees for developing
the canal, and arbitration of dis-
Egyptian Authority
Hammarskjold wrote Fawzi that
international cooperation o the
canal might be accomp ished
through an Egyptian operating
authority, with representation for
user nations.
The Egyptian Canal Authority
and the user representatives
would consult on legal matters,
settlement of differences and ful-
fillnient of decision. But the users
would be bound not to interfere
in the work of the canal authority.
Fawzi in a' reply made public
Nov. 3 agreed that Hammar
skj old's outline was worth trying
as a possible basis for negotiations.
Britain and France - and also
the United States - heretofore
have stood by an 18-power plan
for creating an international au-
thority to run the canal. The plan
was drafted in London in Sep-
tember by the main nations using
the canal.
Moore To Leave
Ann Arbor Council
Prof. A. D. Moore of the engi-
neering college, a veteran of 17
years on the Ann Arbor City
Council, announced yesterday he
will not seek re-election for a new
Prof. Moore, whose term will
end next April. cited the need to
devote more time to research and
writing as his reason for not run-
ning. "This was not an easy de-
cision to make," Prof. Moore de-
clared, "Serving on the council is
a way of life."
He also made mention of the
large turn-over in Council mem-

principles of the UN charter, es-
pecially in renouncing force as an
instrument of national policy.
But Sec. Dulles added at the
same time the West must also
maintain a powerful defense shield
to deter the Kremlin from the
temptations of military adven-
His statement marked the open-
ing of a session of NATO foreign,
finance and defense ministers.
Among other things the NATO
men must map defense targets for
1957 and consider methods of clos-
er political and economic coopera-
tion by the 15 member nations.
Expected to Continue
The session is expected to con-!
tinue to the. end of the week.
The session was closed to news-
men, who received a digest of the
Dulles and other speeches from
NATO officials.
Parts of Sec. Dulles' statement
were an obvious rebuke to Britain
and France for their invasion of
Egypt in the Suez Canal dispute.
But the secretary soothed them
with a compliment on their prompt
observance of the UN call for a
cease-fire on the Suez front.
Britain's Foreign Secretary Sel-
wyn Lloyd and French Foreign
Minister Christian Pineau both
took the floor to explain their
action. It was due, they said, to
Cairo's provocation and the men-
ace of Soviet penetration into the
Middle East.
Within NATO's Scope
Pineau, declaring that Suez is
not now within NATO's scope,
urged the alliance to make mutual
consultation compulsory in some
matters beyond the geographical
limits of the NATO treaty.
He said such consultation should
lead to a joint NATO policy in
these "outside" zones to avoid a
repetition of the Middle East situ-
ation where American policy has
been at odds with Paris and Lon-
Poles Invite
To Make Tour'
Prof. Joseph E. Maddy of the
music school, director of the Na-
tional Music Camp at Interlochen'
yesterday received an invitation
from the Polish Embassy in Wash-
ington to make a concert tour of
Poland with 100 high school
The invitation asked that the
National High School Orchestra
of America, sponsored by Inter-.
lochen, visit Poland in September.
World Friendship
The letter said: "We are sure
that the visit of the National High
School Orchestra will contribute
not only to world friendship, but,
more specifically, to the develop-
ment of a warm relationship be-
tween your country and ours.
aIt is our hope also that a group
of young Polish musicians will in
the future find it possible to come
to the United States for compar-
able performances."
Prof. Maddy said that the best
100 of the 1200 camp students
would perform in the tour. "We
have been planning this trip for
over a year," he commented.
"In September I went to Wash-
ington to confer with ambassadors
of each of the Iron Curtain coun-
tries. "They all seemed so anxious
to welcome our band that I ex-
pected invitations in October.
When fighting in Hungary broke
out I feared all our plans would
be forgotten."

Title roles in the speech de-
partment's presentation of "Juno
and the Paycock" by Sean O'Casey
will be played by Gertrude Slack,
Grad., and Brendan O'Reilly, '58.
They will play Juno and "Cap-
tain" Boyle (the Paycock). The
comic-tragedy will be presented at
8 p.m. today through Saturday in
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Set in a Dublin tenement the
play describes the Boyle family
and the tragic fate it meets
through the weaknesses of one of
its members.
O'Casey's play, based on the ef-
fects of the Easter Rebellion in
Ireland in 1916, was first pre-
sented in 1925 with Barry Fitz-
gerald and Sarah Allgood playing
the title roles. The pair played the
same roles for the Broadway re-

following World War II and work
for unification of Western Europe.
"Europe is not a continent, it
is only a headland of Asia," Kahn
stated. He said a similar argu,
ment had been recently propound-
ed by historian Arnold Toynbee.
Kahn cited the alphabet, num-
erals and religion as Asian contri-
butions to Europan civilization. He
asked, "What has Europe contrib-
uted to Asian culture? Imperial-
ism, colonialism, and anti-semit-
He concluded "Europe is the
graveyard of civilization."
European Imperialism
Bentwich stated that European
imperialism in the 1600's was
caused by the predominant
strength of the Western European
nations at that time. The failure
of this policy was due to the reali-
zation of the native's that to be
strong "they must know how to
hold arms."
He called the rapid industriali-
zation of West Germany since the
last war an example of the ad-
vanced technology of European
European Universities
Examples of European domi-
nance were mentioned by Budde.
"Most Asian and AfrIcan students
come to European universities, the
English language is spoken at such
world important assemblies as the
Bandung Conference recently held!
in Indonesia, and European in-
dustrial methods prevail in most
Asian countries."
