U.S. Repeats
Red China
Policy: Dulles'
Recognition Rumors
Denied by Secretary
CANBERRA, Australia (M)-The
United States reaffirmed before its
Southeast Asia allies yesterday a
determination not to recognize
Communist China.
Seeking to dispel rumors the
Eisenhower administration might
soften its stand on' Red China,
Secretary of State John Foster
Dulles declared:
U.S. Recognition
"United States diplomatic rec-
ognition of the Chinese Commu-
nist regime would serve no na-
tional purpose but would strength-
en and encourage influence hos-
tile to us and to our allies and fur-
ther imperil lands whose inde-
pendence is related to our own
peace and security."
Sec. Dulles told the SEATO
Council of Ministers the United
States "adheres steadfastly" to its
recognition of Nationalist China
and its opposition to giving Chi-
na's seat in the United Nations to
the Peiping government.
Eight Nations
SEATO is the eight-nation or-
ganization formed.three years ago
against Communist aggression
aimed at the countries on Red
China's southeast and southern
borders.
" eAndrew H. Berding, assistant
secretary of state for public af-
fairs, told newsmen later Sec.
Dulles' statement was meant to
dispel numerous rumors during the
past three or four weeks that the
United States was considering a
change in its policy toward Com-
munist China.
Britain Recognizes
Britain, which recognizes Com-
munist China, made it clear Sec.
Dulles' statement could not be
considered a common policy of the
eight-nation SEATO organization.
A British delegation source said:
"We have a somewhat different
practice in the matter. Recogni-
tion of a government, however,
does not necessarily imply ap-
proval and recognition of its poli-
cy."y
House Asks
Budget Slash
WASHINGTON (R) - Over al-
most solid Republican opposition,
the House yesterday asked Presi-
dent Dwight D: Eisenhower to
point out where "substantial re-
ductions" can be made in his ree-
ord peace-time budget.
The resolution was passed by
roll-call vote of 219-178.
Voting for the measure were 10
Republicans and 209 Democrats.
Opposed were 175 Republicans
and three Democrats.
The resolution does not go to
the Senate since it is merely an
expression on House opinion.
President Eisenhower does not
have to sign it, nor does he have
to pay any attention to it. It has
no binding legal effect.
Its passage had been foreshad-
owed a few hours earlier when
the House voted to call up the
resolution for immediate debate.
Republicans proposed to send
the resolution back to committee
but this move was defeated 214-

185 just before the final vote on
passage.
In an apparent effort to offset
the House action, the conference
of Republican senators unani-
mously approved last night a reso-
lution calling on Congress to cut
"President Eisenhower's b u d g e t
"wherever possible consistent with
national security."
The resolution was framed
speedily as the House debated.
In their resolution, the Repub-
lican senators said they are "in
accord with the President's rec-
ommendation that the Congress
reduce the budget wherever pos-
sible."
The Democratic-sponsored reso-.
lution approved by the House was
without precedent.
Republicans argued it amounted
to "buck passing" by Congress and
an abdication of responsibility.
Democrats contended it was
necessary because President Eisen-
hower and some others high in the

MILITARY ANALYSIS-Hanson Baldwin, military analyst for
The New York Times, as he addressed a lecture series audience
last night.
Baldwsfoin Predicts Strife
To Continue in Mid-East
Military analyst Hanson W. Baldwin yesterday predicted "an un-
ending series of minor crises" in the Middle East.
The New York Times writer told a sparse lecture series audience
he could "see no end" to the conflicts in the area. But "major war",
he said, is not an immediate prospect.
Baldwin named four general causes of current troubles in the
area, with the decline of British power headnig the list. Where Bri-
tain once provided stability, there is now a "vacuum of power."
The formation of the state of Israel, the discovery of "great
sources of oil," and a rising Arab "renaissance" have also con-
tributed to friction.
During a quick round-the-world survey of political and military
conditions, Baldwin said the "national aspirations of Moscow and
-Peiping clash and are bound to

Cored Show
Suggested
ByCouncils
A Union-League coed show to be
presented in the 1958-59 school
year was recommended yesterday
in the Coed Show Study Commit-
tee report presented at a joint
session of the League Council and
Union Executive Council.
The report, read by Frank
Knox, '57, committee chairman,
was divided into two categories -
"ideal conclusions" and "practical
recommendations."
Among ideal conclusions were
proposals for "some kind of com-
bination between the Union and
League" in an annual show, em-
phasis on "a quality show" rath-
er than "a quantity show.' and
participatiun by "the professional
schools" in the University.
However, this does not mean the
exclusion of class productions
such as the Soph Show or Junior
Girls' Play, Knox explained.
For practical recommendations,
the report proposed that the pres-
ent MUSKET organization should
continue through next year, and
long-range planning for a 1959
"ideal show" might be directed
through MUSKET.
The Coed Show Study Commit-
tee report will be discussed and
voted on at later meetings of the
League Council and Union Exec-
utive Council.

clash in the future."
While these clashes may not
come frequently enough to be very
beneficial to the West, the possi-
bility of a Soviet-Chinese split
represents today's "greatest chal-
lenge to American dpilomacy."
Cracks in the Soviet empire re-
vealed in Poland and Hungary
Baldwin called "the most heart-
ening development since the
War."
Fraternity,
Row Studied
Fraternity advisors and mem-
bers representing 24 houses met
last night to discuss the proposed
North Campus Fraternity Row.
John Jasse, a member of the
Fraternity Advisor's Association,
made a tentative report of finan-
cial requirements that must be
met for houses wishing to locate
on North Campus.
Estimating $250,000 as the total
fraternity house cost, he said that
any' house interested in moving
should have $50,000 as equity, and
that the balance could be paid on
a twenty year-thirty payment
plan.
Vice President in Charge of
Student Affairs James A. Lewis
and Assistant Dean of Men Wil-
liam Cross explained the present
University position on Fraternity
Row to the advisors.
According to Cross, question-
naires concerning financial con-
dition of interested houses will
now be circulated to both house
members and alumni.

Teamsters
Tell Record
Destruction
Senate Group Hears
Official Admit Act
WASHINGTON () - A top of-
ficial of the Teamsters Union in
Oregon acknowledged to a special
Senate rackets committee yester-
day that some union records
sought by the committee have
been destroyed.
"I think there are some records
of invoice and canceled check sta-
tus that have been destroyed,"
said Clyde C. Crosby, the union's
international organizer in Oregon.
But Crosby said he would be
"disturbed" -if he found that all
the books and recordshad been
disposed of.
Senators Interested
Robert F. Kennedy, committee
counsel, has said the senators are
"vitally interested" in what the
documents contain. An unsuccess-
ful attempt to subpoena them was
made last month.
Under questioning, Crosby tes-
tified he didn't "know for sure"
whether the records of Teamsters
Union Joint Council 37 from mid-
1954 onward had been destroyed.
Seattle Gamblers
Kennedy said this was the peri-
od when Tom Maloney and Joe
McLauglin, two Seattle gamblers,
were associated with union offi-
cials in Portland, Ore. Witnesses
have alleged Maloney and M-
Laughlin were brought to Port-
land as a part of a scheme to take
over gambling and vice operations
there.
Earlier Mayor Terry Schrunk of
Portland denied that he ever re-
ceived payoffs from the city's un-
derworld. He refused to have his
answers checked by a lie detec-
tor.
Schrunk Tested
When Senator Karl E. Mundt
(R-SD), a member of the special
Senate group, proposed that
Schrunk undergo a test the mayor
said, "No sir."
After consideration and after
spending 11 days around here,"
Schrunk continued, "in my opin-
ion this will be settled in the Ore-
gon courts. I'll rest on that."
Oregon Courts
Mundt disagreed that Oregon
courts would be the only ones in-
volved. He said he thought the
Justice Department also would be
in the picture because it is "evi-
dent somebody has committed
perjury here."
The Senate group is beginning
the third week of a nationwide
probe into alleged racketeering in
labor unions and industry.
So far the investigation has con-
centrated largely on activities of
the Brotherhood of Teamsters in
the Pacific Northwest.
Red Break
With Moscow
False-Hoover
WASHINGTON (P) - Federal
Bureau of Investigation Chief J.
Edgar Hoover told Congress yes-
terday that the claimed break with
Moscow by American Communists
was a "fraud" designed to "thwart
government prosecution."
In a letter to the Senate Inter-
nal Security Subcommittee, Hoover
asserted:
"The Communist party before
and after its 1957 convention is
part and parcel of the worldwide,

Communist conspiracy.
It is still responsive to the will
of Moscow; it still works for the
destruction of the American wayI
of life . .."
Senator William E. Jenner (R-
Ind) said in a statement the Reds
Monday issued a news release de-
claring that a new partyconstitu-
tion provides for expulsion of any
member who engages in spying or
advocating violence.
He added that publication of
this handout "at face value in so
many newspapers . .. causes tre-1
mendous confusion" and said
Hoover's analysis counteracts "this
new campaign of subversion."

British Strike
Threat Grows
Over Wages
LONDON (oPm-Britain's bigges
strike since the general strike o
1926 threatened yesterday.
The threat arose when the na
tion's engineering industry refuse
a 10 per cent wage increase for 21/
million workers.
Already 200,000 union workersi
the British shipbuilding indus
try have called a strike for Satur
day in protest against rejectio

sources said yesterday.
The locale is south and east of Suez.

cussed the idea with Emperor Haile Selassie, info
Selassie was reported receptive provided h

The informants said the United States want

Massawa is within easy reach of one of tb
spots, the Gulf of Aqaba, and would provide bu
Middle East units operating in the Red Sea.
Israeli Forces
Israeli forces withdrew from Egyptian po
of Aqaba last week on an assumption Egypt
with Israeli ships bound up the
gulf to Israel's port of Evilat.
The United States shared thisS
assumption, but the Egyptian
press, has indicated Egypt intends
to block Israel's ships from the Insur
Gulf, as it did before the Israeli
invasion last fall.

Major War
The Soviet Union is reported to
have advised Ethiopia it might be
dragged into a major war because
-it contended-the United States
wants to store atomic and hydro-
gen bombs on its territory. Presi-
dent Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt
sent a special mission to Addis
Ababa three days before Vice-
President Nixon arrived. The en-
voy reportedly carried an urgent
message asking the Emperor to
visit Cairo.
Nixon did not say the case was
discussed. He said he had talked
with Selassie about increased
"United States activity." Nixon
said he was withholding details on
grounds of security.
