SOCIALISTS WATCHING:
Ishibashi CommencesPickingCabinet

TOKYO (AP)-Tanzan Ishibashi,
72, Japan's new prime minister
who has too many political back-
ers, began rapid fire huddles yes-
terday to select a Cabinet.
He must satisfy at least three'
major factions within the ruling

since his faction joined in electing
Ishibashi party president.
Ishibashi, son of a Buddhist
priest, climaxed a skyrocket rise
in politics-from beginner to prime
minister in 10 years. He received

Red Trade
Premier Ichiro Hatoyama an-
nounced his resignation because of
ill health.
The new Premier favors expand-
ed trade with Communist China
and Southeast Asia, government
aid to Japan's expanding industry,
and a readjustment of relations
with the United States.
Ishibashi, whose last name
means "stone bridge," argued with
Japan's war lords that their mili-
tary policy was destroying the
country.
Pro-West
He continued his criticism of al-
lied economic policies during the
occupation. He was purged from
office after he served a short time
as finance minister-his first po-
litical post-in Japan's first post-.
war Cabinet.
Ishibashi wanted the occupation
authorities to rebuild Japan's in-
dustrial power quickly. The Ko-
rean War did that.
He is considered to be pro-West-
ern, although he contends Japan
is not now treated as an equal by
the United States. He says he
wants to readjust that situation.

Three Hungarian students have

In a letter to Wilmer J. Kitchen,.

versity has authorized allocation
of two tuition grants for the spring
semester. Additional requests will

ticipates facilities will allow for
the admission of seven more refu-
gees.
Maintenance offers for two stu-
dents have been received by the
International Center from the
Congregational-Disciples Guild
and from the Westminster Fellow-
ship of the Presbyterian Church
in Ann Arbor.

Washington

U.S. Tour Ends Soon
For Prime Minister
WASHINGTON (') - Prime
Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and
President Dwight D. ,Eisenhower
climaxed their four days of talks
yesterday by announcing a "broad
area of agreement" and "greater
understanding."
That was the gist of a formal
communique issued on their be-
half as the Prime Minister boarded
President Eisenhower's personal
Plane, Columbine III, and flew
to New York. From there he will
go to Ottawa for the weekend and
then to London on his way back
to India.
No Specific Agreements
The 67-year-old Indian leader
began his talks with President
Eisenhower last Sunday, continued
them for more than 12 hours
Monday at President Eisenhower's
Gettysburg farm, and wound them
up Wednesday. .
Exactly what they discussed has
been one of Washington's best-
kept secrets thus far.
Official sources insisted no.
specific agreements were reached.
But from the American view-
pointdthe bighaccomplshment
seemed to be the attitude that
Nehru disclosed at a news confer-
ence Wednesday: That U.S. policy
"is not as rigid as I thought,"
Happy Mood
From the Indian viewpoint, the
big gain seemed to be what Nehru
called a greater understanding
and, possibly some appreciation of
India's policy of neutrality 'in the
cold war between Russia and the
Western Allies.
In any event, Nehru left Wash-
ington in an apparently happy
mood.
In a speech at New York to the
United Nations General Assembly,
Nehru called for an end to mili-
tary alliances and the basing of
troops in foreign areas. He said
nations should openly settle dif-
ferences in the UN.
He mentioned the "two trage-
dies, or call them what you will in
Egypt and Hungary."
"Nations have to think twice
before they enrage the conscience
of the world," the Indian Prime
Minister added.
New Relationship
Diplomats of both countries were
quick to hail the Eisenhower-
Nehru talks as possibly the be-
ginning of a new United States-
India relationship. As the official
communique put it:
"The talks confirmed the broad
area of agreement between India
and the United States, which are
bound together in strong ties of
friendship deriving from their
common objectives and their ad-
herence to the highest principles
of free democracy.
"The Prime Minister and the
President are convinced that the
greater understanding of their re-
spective policies reached at these
talks will facilitate the constant
efforts of India and the United
States toward the achievement of
peaceful and friendly intercourse
among nations in accordance with
the principles of the United Na-
tions."
India's neutrality in the cold
war has been a source of friction
between the Indian and United
States governments.
American objections had been
directed not so much as India's
own neutrality as at Indian ef-
forts to recruit new neutrals from

among America's allies and line
them up in a balance-of-power
bloc, headed by India.

is evidenced by papers now in the
possession of the University His-

Terming Wilson's educational
ideal as being too practical, Angell
wrote in Nov., 1909. "Wilson is in
dreamland on college life."
"His ideals are practically those
of the English college in which
teachers and students live together,
and so the boys are brought into
constant personal contact with
their instructors," he added, term-
ing this "absolutely impossible in
the American college."

NICOSIA, Cyprus -- The Greek Cypriot underground yesterday
called for a 24-hour general strike today to protest Britain's offer of
limited self-rule to rebellious Cyprus.
The call was issued after leaders of the island colony's Greek
majority and Turkish minority firmly rejected the proposed new
constitution.
UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. - The UN voted 57-8 yesterday to make
a special assessment of 10 million dollars on the 80 member nations
for expenses of the UN Emergency Force in the Middle East.
The Soviet bloc nations voted against it and have said they
wouldn't pay anything toward the support of the UNEF.
The shares will be based on the 1956 budget assessment rates of
members.
