Poland To Negotiate
For American Loan
U.S. Hopes to Strengthen Poland's
Independence by Bolstering Economy
WASHINGTON toP)-The United States announced yesterday it
it will open negotiations with Communist Poland soon on that country's
proposal to borrow American dollars and buy American goods.
The idea is to shore up Poland's newly won independence of
Russia.
Lincoln White, State Department press officer, said the Polish
government has been invited to hold the economic talks in Wash-
ington and has accepted. He thought the negotiations would start
soon. Other sources said the United States was ready to begin them
early next weep.

The Warsaw government hopes to get trade credits here totaling
about 100 million dollars at least. It wants these to finance the pur-

By DIANE LaBAKAS
Hotly contested races for the state chairmanship and Regents
posts appear imminent at the Republican state convention in Detroit
tonight and tomorrow.
Approximately 10 candidates are presently seeking the state
chairmanship position vacated by retiring John Feikens. Larry Lind-
emer, Lansing, and J. Addington Wagner, Battle Creek, are leading
in the chairmanship race according to late reports.
"Lindemer's outstate strength has been increasing," Ann Arbor
Rep. George W. Sallade declared. He said since Washtenaw County
does not use the unit rule in its voting, the delegation would be

CONTEMPT:
Cong res
Cites Four
T eamsters
WASHINGTON (A') -- Four
Teamsters Union officials who de-
fied a Senate inquiry group were
cited for contempt of Congress
Wednesday by the Senate Govern-
ment Operations Committee.
The committee voted 12-0 in
favor of prosecuting Einar O.
Mohn, executive vice-president of
the big union; Frank W. Brew-
ster, head of the Teamsters' 11-
state Western Conference; Nugent
Lapoma, secretary-treasurer of
Local 174 in Seattle; and Harry
Reiss, secretary-treasurer of Lo-
cal 284 in New York.
The vote was taken behind
closed doors and reported by
Chairman John L. McClellan (D-'
Ark.). It followed similar action
taken by the Senate Investigations
subcommittee.
If the Senate accepts the par-
ent committee's recommendation
the contempt cases will be sent
to the Justice Department for fur-
ther proceedings. Conviction for
contempt of Congress carries max-
imum penalties of a year in jail,
a $1,000 fine or both.
The labor leaders refused to an-
swer questions or turn over sub-
poenaed union documents when
summoned before the subcommit-
tee last month. The subcommittee
was looking into alleged labor
racketeering.
SAB To Open
Next Frday
The new Student Activities
Building, tentatively scheduled for
completion Feb. 1, will not be
ready for use until Feb. 15, accord-
ing to Vice-President for Student
Affairs James A. Lewis.
Although major construction has
been completed, there are still
minor installation and painting
jobs to be finished. Office furni-
ture, supplied by the University
must also be installed before open-
ing the building.
Student organizations have post-
poned moving in until Feb. 16.
Members of the Dean's office will
move the preceding day.
A meeting of the SAB Adminis-
tration committee will be held at
3 p.m. today in the Union to final-
ize moving plans.

mining equipment, fats and oils,
chemical fertilizer and grains for
cattle food.
Diplomatic officials said the Po-
lish economy, weakened by years
of unprofitable goods shipments to
Russia, is hard pressed.
They said cooperation by the
Western Powers to expand trade is
vitally important to enable the
Poles to maintain the independ-
ence of Moscow domination which
they asserted last October.
Decision Late
The United States' decision on
a date for the talks to begin comes
many waeks after it was expected.
Last October, President Dwight
D. Eisenhower declared publicly
the United States was prepared to
assist the more independent Po-
land..
The Poles had their delegation
ready to come to Washington for
weeks.
Authorities here explain the de-
lay as the result of a series of
events, among them the Middle
East crisis with its demands on
top United States policy makers,
the election and the illness of Sec-
retary of State John Foster Dulles.
Initial reaction on Capitol Hill
was favorable. Rep. Thomas Gor-
don (D-Ill.), chairman of the
House Foreign Affairs Committee,
said he could think of "no better
use" for farm products of which
this country has a surplus.

Fines
Almost 250 students received $10:
fines for violating University park-{
ing regulations last semester, Joint.
Judiciary Chairman Herb Wander,
'57, said yesterday.
He said such violations were
commonly the result of misunder-
standing of the restrictions on
parking in University lots.
Signs which restrict parking tot
holders of "permits" refer nor-
mally to parking permits, not
simply vehicle registrations. Wan-
der urged all prospective parkers!
to read signs in front of lots care-
fully.
He added that further confusion
over regulations commonly result-
ed when students falsely assumed
lots. containing meters are not re-
stricted, or when students failed
to realize parking restrictions1
apply to registered student ve-
hicles whether or not the car is
parked by a student. Non-student
wives of students were frequent
violators, Wander commented.
Funds collected from fines will
eventually be used to build more
parking facilities.

Inoculations
By WILLIAM HANEY
Response to Health Service's
polio inoculation program has been
"very good" since it was instituted
shortly after Christmas vacation,
Dr. Morley Beckett, director of
Health Service, said.
One day each week, Thursday,
has been reserved for polio inocu-
lations because students applied
for the shots in such large num-
bers prior to Christmas.
Over 500 students received polio
immunization on the Thursdays
of examination week and registra,-
tion week, Dr. Beckett said.
Yesterday Health Ser :ice of-
ficials recorded one of the largest
number of inoculations given in a
single day when more than 500
students received shots by 3 p.m.
with still two hours and possibly
another 100 students remaining.
Dr. Beckett said a close ap-
proximation of the number of stu-
dents inoculated so far this year
would not be possible for several
weeks but he estimated the num-
ber "runs well up in the thou-
sands."
According to Dr. Beckett the
new system of giving shots one
day weekly "is much more effic-
lent for both the student and
Health Service personnel."
"A student can pick up his
health card, receive his shot and
pay for it i five minutes," Dr.
Beckett said.
Dr. Beckett mentioned the num-
ber of stu:dents applying for in-
fluenza shots has been "very
slight" this year, probably because
there has not yet been an indica-
tion of any kind of a flu epidemic.
He added, however, facilities for
flu immunization are available
to all students between the hours

esplit but the majority would vote
for Lindemer.
Washtenaw County chairman
Kenneth MacDonald agreed 35-
year-old Lindemer has gained
much support but added the older
members have recognized Linde-
mer's strength and are doing more
campaigning for 45-year-old Wag-
ner.
"Both candidates are well quali-
fled," MacDonald asserted, "but
young Matthew Buder of Genesee
County, who is similar to Linde-
mer, should not be counted out.'"
, Four candidates are supposedly
running for the two Regents posts.
Republicans presently outnumber
the Democrats on the Board of
Regents, 6-2.
Incumbent Alfred B. Connable.
Kalamazoo, is rumored to be op-
posed by either K. T. Keller,
chairman of the Chrysler Corp.
board, or one of Keller's choices.
Mrs. Ethel Jocelyn Watt, Birm-
ingham, will be opposed by Frank
Gorman, member of the Detroit
Board of Education for 24 years.

Arabs Agree
Wit-h Dulles
On All Points
WASHINGTON (P)-The deputy
foreign minister of Saudi Arabia
said last night after a long con-
ference with Secretary of State
John Foster Dulles that "we have
agreed on everything we have dis-
cussed."
His words indicated full under-
standing has been reached on such
issues as continued American use
of the Dhahran air base and a
military aid program for Arabia.
Shaikh Yusuf Yasin, the deputy
foreign minister, Finance Minister
Shaikh Mohammad Surur and
Ambassador Shaikh Abdullah Al-
Khayyal conferred with Dulles
and other officials for about three
and one-quarter hours.
Upon leaving Dulles' office, Yas-
in was asked whether the issue of
arms of Saudi Arabia had been
discussed, he replied:
"Everything we have talked
about we have agreed on."

be a serious upward pressure" on

Gulf prices would be the ones most

That statement was shown to
have been made Sept. 19 by S. P.

Co. of New Jersey.
Coleman's company is one of 15
which have joined in the Middle'

1'/ Billion Cost
In yesterday's inquiry session,
Smith estimated the cost of the
oil-to-Europe program at one and
one-half billion dollars and said
if that is correct, increased costs
should be openly charged to eco-
nomic aid instead of American oil
consumers.
Smith said customers of his own
company would have their aggre-
gate bill increased by six billion
dollars through "the sudden and
enormousincrease in fuel oil
prices at the refineries."~
'Unlimited Inflation'
"Certainly an increase of 30 to
40 per cent in the cost of such a
basic commodity as fuel will have
unlimited inflationary effects na-
tionwide."
He said the price increase had
been about 75 cents per barrel of
42 gallons of fuel oil.
"It is my hope that after you
members of Congress and the.
President have become acquainted
with the devastating effects the
spiraling fuel costs are having on
the State of Florida, and the na-
tion as a whole, you will be able
to persuade the oil industry to roll
back their prices," he said.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is an interpretive article analyzing spine of the
causes of the December food riot and dormitory food complaints.)
By RICHARD TAUB
Dormitory food has been in the limelight since the demonstrations
in December.
There always have been and always will be complaints about
institutional cooking. But despite the University's claim that "griping
about food is a time-honored national student tradition," a study of
the food set-up indicates trouble-areas.
One of these is the lack of communication at all levels of the
residence halls system.
Overlapping Authority
Communication difficulties exist within the administration. Two
staffs, academic and business, have jurisdiction over areas which
occasionally overlap.

had reached serious proportions a
week before the disturbance.
Even communications between
student dorm government and
students were defunct. Shortly be-
fore the riot IHC President Bob
Warrick, '57E, told Vice-President
for Student Affairs James Lewis
there was no serious problem.
Knew About Demonstration
Ironically, many students were
unaware that house service com-
mittees had been set up to study
food complaints.
One house president knew a
demonstration was being planned
a week before the event. And a
student worker had told South
Quad's head dietician that trouble
was brewing.
Yet people on the administrative
level "were unaware" there was
food trouble.
This problem seems far from4

not to do anything on the com-
mittee just yet.
'Quality' Controversy
Much of the controversy revolves
around quality of the food and
operations of University Food
Service. Many of the rumors fly-
ing through the residence halls
are not true. Contrary to common
belief, food service does not wait
for the market to drop out on a
product before extensive purchas-
ing.
Most of the canned and frozen
goods are bought before school
starts. According to Herbert Wag-
ner, food service manager, food is
bought during the canning season
when it is generally cheapest.
A tour through the larger store-
rooms reveals labels on the frozen
and canned foods found in any
supermarket.
Bake Own Bread

Yet because the business opera-
tion is so complex, the academic
staff is often unaware of. business
policies. The food problem points
this up. It concerns both groups-
the business staff financially and
the academic for student welfare.

ness staffers to explain policies
and activities. So far none have.
Communications are clouded on
other levels as well. Both Leoiard
