eirMakes US. Trip to Discuss Gaza
(Editor's Note: The Daily regrets any misunderstanding or erroneous
impressions created by the lead story in yesterday's paper. It also regrets
any embarrassment to candidates Eldersveld and Brown, and to City
Administrator Guy Larcom.)
Following is a statement by Prof. Samuel J. Eldersveld, of the
political science department, Democratic candidate for Mayor:
"I was shocked yesterday to read a distortion of what I said in
an interview which appeared in Saturday's Daily.
"When queried by the reporter about my opponent's claim of a
conflict of interest' I stated that the Democratic party did not feel
this was a legitimate campaign issue. I did state that if, and the if was
stressed, one wanted to use Mr. Brown's logic, the charge could be
turned against him.
However, I clearly stated I had no intention of doing so. I did not
say that Mr. Brown presently owned the local Chevrolet Agency. I did
not say he was on the board of the Ann Arbor Construction Co. I did
LONDON ()-Britain's 200,000
shipyard workers walked out yes-
terday in a strike that threatened
to spread through key manufac-
turing industries employing up to
three million men.
The crippling labor disputes-
the worst in Britain since the gen-
eral strike of 1926-burst upon
Prime Minister Harold Macmillan
just five days before his Bermuda
conference with President Dwight
D. Eisenhower, opening Thursday.
Leaders of the 40 unions in the
Confederation of Shipbuilding and
Engineering Unions called out the
shipmakers to support demands
for a 10 per cent pay increase.
The CSEU at the same time or-
dered a strike for next Saturday
among the nation's engineering
workers-key employees in manu-
facturing industries such as ma-
chine tools, aircraft, automobiles,
electrical equipment and heavy
machinery. They also demand a
10 per cent pay increase.
If prolonged, the shipyard strike
could have a disastrous effect on
the nation's economy.
Labor's disgruntlement stemmed
from a steady rise in the cost of'
living under the Conservative gov-
ernment and persistent friction
between management and unions,
marked by' charges and counter-
charges of highhandedness and
clumsy leadership on both sides.'
Among the British people as a
whole, there was subdued anger
against both management and the
unions for allowing a strike to de-
velop while Britain is fighting for
The industry went dead with itsI
order books bulging.1
The futu e of pi oessional the-
atre in Ann Arbor will be examined
by members of the Dramatics Arts
Center tomorrow night.C
Open discussion of the prob- t
lems of a professional resident i
company in Ann Arbor, will be
held at the association's annual,
membership meeting, according to
Prof. Marvin Felheim of the En-
glish department, a DAC director.
This 'is the first membership
meeting since the Board of Direc-
tors' recent announcement that
the Center's professional dramatict
series will be discontinued for lackt
of a theatre. x
DAC's present home in the Ma-t
say that the Mayor has beenin-
volved in various local business,
realty and financial concerns
which would make the 'conflict of
interest' question possible, if I
wanted to use his logic.
"I did not say that City Admini-
strator Guy Larcom is the mayor's
lackey. I did say that Mayor Brown
would like to use the City Admini-
strator as a lackey."
Mayor William E. Brown has
not had an interest in a Chevrolet
agency for two years. While serv-
ing as Mayor the only veto he cast
was on a City Council motion to
purchase cars from an agency in
which he did have an interest.
Mayor Brown pointed out yes-
terday that in his 12 years as may-
or the City has had, no dealings
with businesses in which he has
had any financial interest

GAZA (i)-The swift Egyptian
takeover in the Gaza Strip brought
ominous rumbling from Israel last
An Israeli spokesman in Jeru-
salem declared Foreign Minister
Golda Meir's flying trip to the
United States is "the last diplo-
matic effort to safeguard an ex-
clusive United Nations regime in
the Gaza Strip."
The spokesman referred to re-
ports Egyptian' military police al-
ready are on duty under the new
governor, Major General Moham-
med Hassan Abdel Latif, and de-
"This would mean a further seri-
ous deterioration of the situation
in the area and would have a
grave bearing on Israel's attitude."
Fifty Egyptian military police-
men moved into the Gaza Strip
with Latif and the Egyptian civil-
ian administrators Thursday night
and took over some patrol duties
of UN troops.
In New York, a member of the
Israeli UN delegation spoke of the
danger of a new conflict over the
Gaza Strip or the Gulf of Aqaba,
on which lies Israel's port of Eilat.
The delegation source said Israel
received renewed United States
assurancesronly this week on the
UN role in the Gaza Strip and
freedom of shipping in the gulf.
"The prevention of raids and
blockades is . . . the only alterna-
tive to the danger of war ensuing
from Egyptian belligerence," he

'Will Defend Rights'

is expected to ask Secretary of

Handicapped Wolverines Blasted
From Two-Year NCAA Title Hold
By BRUCE BENNETT
Special to The Daily
COLORADO SPRINGS-Colorado College 'won its second
NCAA hockey title here last night as it overpowered defending
champion Michigan, 13-6, at the Broadmoor Ice Palace.
The fast skating Tigers, whose previous title was in 1930,
simply had too many guns for the Wolverines. They outshot
the visitors 43-28.
The Michigan hockey team had nothing to be ashaned
of as it battled right to the end. To a man, they hustled and
skated with Colorado College from the start. But as the game
wore on, the Tigers' depth paid';

NEW YORK (P)-The New York
Civil Liberties Union has invited
Communist editor John Gates to
speak at a hotel next Friday night
--so students can hear him despite
a ban by all city colleges.
Queens Provost Thomas Garvey
banned Daily Worker Editor Gates'
appearance there, and later a City
College student group invited the
Communist editor to speak.
But this appearance was can-
celed, too, after heads of the mu-
nicipal colleges got together and
decided they would not extend
campus courtesies to anyone con-
victed under the Smith Act.
Bob McCusker was the individ-
ual hero of the night for the win-
