Informal Dinner Marks Attempt I
To Heal Anglo-American Relations
TUCKER'S TOWN, Bermuda (A) - President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower and Prime Minister Harold L. Macmillan yesterday opened
their American-British partnership-mending conference with an in-
formal "working dinner."
The two chiefs got into preliminary discussions over the table at
their Midocean Club conference headquarters.
Only Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, British Foreign Sec-
retary Selwyn Lloyd and the United States and British ambassadors,
John Hay Whitney and Sir Harold Caccia, joined President Eisen-
hower and Macmillan for the dinner talks.
President Eisenhower, looking tanned and fit arrived yesterday
afternoon on the cruiser Canberra after his six-day cruise. He was
met by Macmillan.
"Harold, how are you?" he said with a warm smile as he reached
for the hand of the Prime Minister, a friend since World War

Ceck Ordered Show'
Records o Committee
WASHINGTON (A') - President Dave Beck of the Teamsters
Union was ordered yesterday to appear next Tuesday before Senate
rackets investigators - and to bring his financial records for 1949
This key development, heralding events that could be spectacular,
interrupted testimony of Frank W. Brewster, a vice president of the,
Teamsters and chairman of the union's Western Conference.
Among other things, Brewster told the special Senate committee
investigating improper labor and industry activities he owes around
$42,000 to George Newell of Seattle, who makes some $300,000 a
year in brokerage fees on the union's health and welfare fund. The

day that the session would be held
tomorrow evening on the Michigan
State University Campus.
"I was told by some of the pow-
ers that be that they didn't want
the press there," he said, referring
to the institution heads.
Representing the universities will
be Harlan H. Hatcher, president
of the University; John A. Han-
nah, president of Michigan State,

of Wayne State University.

The committee chairman, Sen.
John McClellan, (D-Ark), inter-

to say that just before the com-
mittee's 3 p.m. deadline he had
received a telegram from Beck in
Seattle advising that the teams-
ters boss will show up with the re-
quested financial records when-
ever he is called.
Beck's telegram had a puzzling
tagline - that he will appear with
the records "without prejudice to
my rights under the Constitution
and Bill of Rights."
McClellan said he didn't know
whether that meant Beck will
make the records available to the
committee or only bring them
3 Hare System
Michigan's own version of the stock, exchange took place
last night as the changing fortunes of Student Government
Council candidates were plotted on a blackboard in the Union
Winners were picked by the Hare system in which voters
number the candidates in order of preference rather than
marking votes for only six of the 13 candidates.
During the counting, votes were first distributed to the
candidates receiving first place on the ballot. In the Hare sys-
tem, the number of votes needed for election, the quota, is de-
termined by dividing the total number of valid ballots by the
number of vacant positions plus one.
Thus last night, 5,404 valid ballots were cast for six posi-
tions. Dividing by seven and adding one, 772 votes were needed
for election on the first round of counting.
Ballots were then drawn at random from the winner's pile
in a number equal to his votes above the quota and distri-
butedtto the second preference. The candidate with the lowest
vote total was dropped and his ballots redistributed.
The count of each candidate was again taken and new totals
On the basis of the new total of valid ballots and the num-
ber of positions still open, a new quota was determined.
Anyone over quota was elected, his excess ballots distri-
buted, the last man dropped, and the quota lowered. The pro-
cedure was repeated until the six candidates were elected.
Mayor Brown Admits Loss
Of, City Buses Temporarily
Ann Arbor Mayor William Brown admitted yesterday there is a
"possibility" the City will be without bus service for "a few days".
At a special City Council meeting yesterday the first reading
of an ordinance was passed, granting the locally-owned Ann Arbor
Transit Corporation a franchise.
Mayor Brown explained an ordinance must be available in the
City Clerk's office for 30 days before it can be finally adopted. This
would mean the City couldn't expect bus service from Transit Corp.
