r Middle East
Talks Called
'Satisfactory'
Ike, Macmillan
To Make Report
TUCKER'S TOWN, Bermuda (A'
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
and Prime Minister Harold Mae-
' millan yesterday concluded "gen-
erally satisfactory" talks on the
Middle East and other crucial
world problems.
Then they sat down to figure
out how much they can tell the
world about their decisions.
The two leaders arranged to is-
sue a joint communique this
morning dealing with those deci-
sions-=some of them on military
strategy likely to remain cloaked
with considerable secrecy.
Relations Repaired
In advance, of their formal
statement there was evidence that
the Eisenhower-Macmillan nego-
tiations at the Mid-Ocean Club
have gone far to repair British-
American relations damaged when
Britain moved into Egypt last No-
vember.
Official spokesmen for Ameri-
eas and British delegations re-
peated yesterday that the Presi-
dent and Prime Minister have
achieved a "gratifying measure of
agreement" on how to strive to
ease Middle East tension.
Spokesmen declined to discuss
details of another important as-
pect of the talks-President Eisen-
hower's reported plan to help Bri-
tain increase its atomic striking
power to compensate for her cut-
backs in military manpower.
Agreement Understood
But there was understood to be
agreement on how the United
States will move to streamline
British forces in the atomic and
guided missiles fields.
On conclusion of 'the formal
talks, White House press secre-
tary James G. Hagerty and Bri-
tish spokesman Peter Hope agreed
at a news conference that the Eis-
enhower-Macmillan negotiations
have been "generally satisfactory"
over-all.
Secretary of State John Foster
Dulles and Foreign Secretary Sel-
wyn Lloyd went to work on further
polishing of the communique draft
during the afternoon.
The plan was for President Eis-
enhower and Prime Minister Mac-
millan to spend the evening dis-
cussing the draft and decide just
how much they can disclose about
* e talks at the Mid-Ocean Club
hich has been guarded since
Thursday by troops with fixed
bayonets.
The decision to publish the com-
munique today underscored the
importance of timing.
Light Shocks
Follow Quake
On West Coast
SAN FRANCISCO (P)-The sul-
len earth, still subsiding from Fri-
day's big earthquake, continued
shaking jittery San Francisco last
night. ,
But the shocks were fewer and
farther between and did no re-
ported damage. By 5 p.m. 67 trem-
ors-most of them unfelt minor
aftershocks-had been recorded.
The two strongest of the after-
noon-at 2:48 and 4:35 p.m.-had
Richter readings of 3, compared
with 5.5 for Friday's heaviest.

But with the 1906 disaster still
fresh in many living memories,
with each quake came the ques-
tion: "Is this another big one?"
Thirty-one persons were injured,
none critically, in the big shock,
which struck at 11:45 a.m. Friday.
Mayor George Christopher de-
cleared "damage is bound to run
into millions of dollars."
San Francisco's mayor said dam-
' age was "too scattered and wide-
spread for us to be able to give
any actual figure at this time."

$270,000 'LOANED'
Investigators Say Beck
Did Not, 'Borrow' Funds
WASHINGTON EmP)-Senate rackets investigators said yesterday
they can prove that $270,000 of "reputed" loans to teamsters president
Dave Beck from union funds "was not a loan ... and certainly not a
gift."
They did not say just how they classify the transaction. Chairman
John L. McClellan (D-Ark.) told a news conference he would not want
to characterize it before Beck takes the witness stand Tuesday when
the investigating committee resumes public hearings.
New Safeguards
Meantime, Sen. McClellan announced he had ordered hisstaff
to study the idea of new legislation to protect union rank-and-filers
-by safeguarding union funds.

Legislators
Hit Regent's
Income Idea
Porter, Engstrom
Reject Power's Plan
By PETER ECKSTEIN
Two key legislators yesterday
rejected Regent Eugene Power's
suggestion that the University be
given an "assured income," pos-
sibly from a corporation income
tax.
Sen. Elmer Porter (R-Blissfield),
Senate Appropriations Committee
chairman, told The Daily he
doubted such a program would be
possible. "We've got too much ear-
marked funds now," he com-
plained.
As for the corporations tax,
Sen. Porter said, "If you tax them,
you might not have any left." He
said smaller corporations would
be especially vulnerable to such
a tax.
Rep. Arnell Engstrom (R-Tra-
verse City), doubted the legislature
would pass a corporations profits
tax this session.
Profits Unstable
He described corporations pro-
fits as too unstable to base all
University revenues on them.
Rep. Engstrom said University
President Harlan Hatcher's pro-
posal to increase University fee
revenues by 23 per cent and sta-
bilize fees at 20 per cent of edu-
cational costs "isn't far out of
line with the thinking of the legis-
lature."
He suggested the proposed tui-
tion increases, averaging 15 per
cent per student, would be suffi-
cient to satisfy members of his
committee. And students "can take
that much without being hurt,"
Rep. Engstrom asserted.
He called tuition hikes "only a
temporary stopgap, not a solution
to the problem of education.
Other Method Needed
"Some tax or other method of
financing will have to be found,"
he said, but not during the current
session and not a corporations pro-
fit tax.
He predicted "some temporary
stopgap" tax legislation for this
session.
He added the legislature would
be satisfied if, in addition to tui-
tion raises, the University stopped
charging light, heat and hot water
in the residence halls to the state
President Hatcher recently agreed
to stop the practice in any new
dormitories planned.
Porter, 'U' Close
Sen. Porter said that he and
the University are now, as a
result of Hatcher's offer to raise
tuition, "closer together than any
time yet."
But he did not "know what my
opinion would be" on the proposed
20:80 ratio between student fees
and legislative appropriations.
"I've heard school people say fees
should be between 20and 30 per
cent."
Sen. Porter said flatly, "I will
not vote for any new taxes for
this year," and described this
stand as final. "You've got to
learn to live within yourincome."
Cuts Indefaite
Sen. Porter would not say defi-
nitely that his committee would
add more cuts to the $2,500,000
proposed by Gov. G. Mennen Wil-
lians, but he was adamant that
the total Williams budget would
have to be cut.
Sen. Porter said it was "too early
to say" whether or not the legis-
lature would approve any new
capital outlay requests by the
University or simply provide funds
for those already begun.

In English
Wage Strike
LONDON WA~-A million factory
workers joined 200,000 striking
shipyard men yesterday in a stra-
tegically-planned wave of walk-
outs aimed at shutting down vital
British export industries.
The "snowball strike" for more
pay in key manufacturing plants
began officially at noon despite
signs of decreasing tension on
Britain's seething labor front.
Workers Called
Union leaders called out the
million factory workers in 10 se-
lected industrial centers ranging
from Glasgow in the north to
Southampton on the channel coast
and from Bristol in the west to
Tyneside in the east.
The strike is scheduled to
spread from area to area until it
paralyzes scattered industries
handling 40 per cent of Britain's
export trade.
April 6 is set as the deadline
for a complete shutdown of 4,300
plants manufacturing everything
from aircraft to electrical equip-
ment, autos to heavy locomotives.
Millions Involved
Three million men would be in-
volved.
Both factory workers and ship-
building men are demanding a 10
per cent pay raise on their pres-
ent average wage of 12 pounds 18
shillings 10 pence-$36.24 a week.
They are members of the same
big union.
Britain's 70 shipyards have been
close~d a full week by the strike,
but government negotiators are
hopeful the walkout may be called
off sometime this week.

ADMINISTRATIVE CHA
Collins To
For Fourth

president, to its executive committee.
"He would carry on all the fu

of the present vice-president."
Collins also hoped that, next sem

trative details," he said, "leaving-

them no time to study legislative
and policy matters."
Lighten Work Load
These changes, Collins said,
would lighten the work load of the
vice-president, build a stronger
administrative wing, and make
possible greater leadership train-
ing for all.
Addition of the fourth officer
would give SGC a lineup of presi-
dent, executive vice-president, ad-
ministrative vice-president and
treasurer.
Officers for the coming half-year
will be elected Friday. Collins plans
to deliver a "state-of-the-union"
address preceding elections.
A new vice-president, Collins
said, would be responsible for cov-
ering all committee activities,
supervising progress, delegating
projects and personnel and inter-
preting Council policy to com-
mittee chairmen.
Members Scarce
"They couldn't have a fourth
officer, as considered two years
ago," he explained, "because Coun-
cil members were committee chair-
men and they couldn't spare an-
other Council member."
A recent change in structure
combined three committees into
one, leaving SGC with its present
four committees. A Council mem-
ber chairs each of the groups.
Collins added that a fourth offi-
cer would give more persons the
necessary experience toward the
presidency. "
He also said other SOC members
were in agreement with him on
the need for these changes.
If Council members did not chair
committees, Collins said, they
would act as advisors to those
groups and have more time to ex-
amine more areas-housing, inter-
national students - and more
problems in the light of overall
policy.

will turn over to the committee for
scrutiny his personal financial rec-
ords.
But even if Beck should refuse,
Kennedy said, "we will, I feel, still
be able to provecertain facts
showing misuse of union funds by
him."
Records Searched
Kennedy disclosed that com-
mittee investigators already are
tracing through bank records and,
other sources what happened to
the $270,000 from the time it left
various west coast teamsters union
treasuries.
Beck has acknowledged in a
televised interview that he obtain-
ed, without paying interest or post-
ing collateral, between $300,000
and $400,000 of "loans" from union
funds. He said he repaid them.
Frank W. Brewster, a union vice-
president, head of the 11-state
Western Conference of Teamsters,
testified Friday that as secretary-
treasury of the conference in the
days before 1953 when Beck was
its chairman, he never knew of
any of the reputed $270,000 of
"loans" to Beck.

investigators.
