Teamster Hit
By Senators
In Contempt
Terrorist, Others
Invoke Amendment
WASHINGTON (R) - The spe.
cial Senate Rackets Committee
yesterday ordered contempt of
Congress proceedings against a
convicted Scranton, Pa., Teamster
terrorist who refused to say whe-
ther he regards himself as "a de-
cent citizen."
Two other convicted dynamiters
also invoked the Fifth Amend-
ment in balking at committee
questions. But it was Robert
Hubshman who aroused the ire of
Chairman Robert McClellan (D-
McClellan angrily ordered the
committee staff to prepare con-
tempt proceedings after Hubsh-
man refused to answer such ques-
tions as the one about his civic-
mindedness, or lack of it.
Refuses to Answer
Hubshman who served nine
months for dynamiting and now
faces malicious mischief charges
in Scranton, refused 36 times to
answer the committee's questions
because they "may tend to in-
criminate me."
By contrast, pretty witness Hel-
en Canfield told with almost girl-
ish gusto how she had secretly
tape-recorded conversations which
named high Teamster officials in
Scranton, took the tapes to the
district attorney, and then found
herself arrested for "obstructing
The 27-year-old brunette said
she knew all the Teamster mem-
bers involved - "they were nice
boys"-and they had told her of
other deeds including deflating
tires of nonunion trucks, stink-
bombing a nonunion bakery, and
putting sugar in gasoline to dam-
age engines.
Conflicting Testimony
Conflicting testimony about
Bradshaw's role in the dynamiting
came from William Munley, the
man who later confessed actually
setting off the blast.
Munley said Teamster officials
never talked to him about the dy-
namiting - that Bradshaw asked
him to do the job.
Secret Craft,
Guide Unveiled
By Scientists
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (')-Scien-
tists unveiled a secretly developed
American invention yesterday
which they say promises to guide
any kind of craft-plane, missile,
ship or submarine - free from
enemy interference - to any
chosen spot on earth.
"Inertial Guidance," as it is
called by its developers at Massa-
chusetts Institute of Technology,
already has flown a big B29 from
Boston to Los Angeles.
Y No Radar Beam
Operating without magnetic
compass, radio or radar, without
a glimpse of earth, sun or stars,
"Inertial Guidance" is said by the
scientists to need no electronic
signal or radar beam-and there-
fore cannot be "jammed" by ap-
paratus in the hands of an enemy.
Heart of the system is a

completely free-floating gyroscope
sealed in a little four-inch cylinder
the size of a tomato can.
Scientists say this incredibly
complicated mechanism always re-
mains aimed in a fixed position in
relation to the universe indepen-
dent of the earth's motion.
Natural Phenomena
And it cannot be affected by
t' other natural phenomena such as
weather, sunspots and magnetic
influences on polar flights, the
scientists add.
The scientists hint it might be
_f of very great importance in flight
through outer, space-as to the
moon or mars.
It is being applied to flight and
fire control as well as to naviga-
tion. Military application for all

Shortly before the King spoke,
the new premier, Hussein Fakhri

federal union of Syria, Egypt and

change in governments.
Khalidi said a cultural and eco-

step toward a federal union.

AWARENESS-Prof. Martin Buber of Jerusalem said last night
' that people must become aware of each other as unique entities
and communicate with them as such.
Prof. Buber Says Men Must
Communicate Real Selves
Men must communicate themselves to others as they really are,
Prof. Martin Buber of Hebrew University, Jerusalem, last night said.
The eminent Jewish theologian spoke against the concern with
"seeming" appearances which dominates life today. He listed this
concern as one of three problems which must be overcome to achieve
"inter-human" life.
He offered as an example the case of two men talking to each
other. "We have each as he wants to appear to the other; each as
he really appears to each other - the two images do not correspond
at all; each as he appears to himself; and each as he really is.
Two Realities Present
"In short, there are present two realities and six semblances.
There is no room for inter-human relationship."
Yet a person can never pay too dearly for life, no matter how
much it may cost. One may strive for or less successfully, Prof.

LONDON (A)-Parliament last
night approved the Conservative
party government's plan for
streamlined defense based on nu-
clear weapons.
It gave Prime Minister Harold
Macmillan's government a 309-258
vote of confidence on the issue, re-
jecting a Labor party motion at-
tacking "undue dependence" on
nuclear weapons and demanding
postponement of British hydro-
gen bomb tests in the Pacific this
Macmillan, who spoke just be-
fore the vote ending a two-day
defense debate said Britain is
striving for general disarmament
but until that time "we must rely
on the power of the nuclear de-
terrent or throw up the sponge"
Harsh Decision
"That is a harsh decision to
make," Macmillan said, "but I
believe most of my fellow country-
men would prefer to stand boldly
on the deterrent than risk all the
traditions of our religious and civil
Laborites, demanding postpone-
ment of the forthcoming H-bomb
tests in the Christmas Island area
"for a limited period," urged the
government meanwhile to swk
abolition of such tests through in-
ternational agreement.
H-Bomb Tests
"My view is that if they-the
H-bomb tests - were abondoned
they would never be held," he said
amid cheers from his supporters.
"That is a responsibility which I
am not prepared to take."
The government's new defense
plan, pegged to American-made
guided missiles fitted with nuclear
warheads and with the ability to
strike back powerfully at any ag-
gressor, was approved by Com-
mons shortly after the rejection of
the Laborite attack.
The program will nearly halve
Britain's armed forces over the
next five years with an immediate
saving of 196 million dollars.
Macmillan emphasized the plan-
ned cuts in armed service person-
nel were forced by Britain's shaky
financial situiation.

SGC Will Hear
Union, League
Resolutions stemming from discussion in the League Senate and
the Union Representative Body will be automatically placed on the
Student Government Council Agenda, SGC members decided by a
nine to eight vote last night.
Designed to organize channels of communication through which
students can express their opinion, the motion received objections
from SGC members who felt that outside groups should not have a
"mandate" over the SGC agenda.
Called Excellent Source
Stating that the League Senate and the Union Representative
Body "represent no special interests," the motion called them an
"excellent source of opinion."
The Senate consists of approximately 50 representatives from
all the women's dorms, sorority and League houses. The Union Body
has not been formed yet but will

be organized along similar lines.
Placing recommendations stem-
ming from discussion in these
groups on the SGC Agenda would
provide "the strongest incentive
for worthwhile discussion" accord-
ing to the motion's maker, Roy

'Relief Bill
Left Hanging
By Congrress
WASHINGTON (R) - A bitter
Senate - House dispute over a
money bill carrying funds for re-
lief checks was left hanging fire
tonight as both branches quit until
noon today.
The House adjourned at 6:25
p.m. and the Senate recessed at
The senators made plain before
they quit, however, that they did
not intend to accept the latest ver-
sion of the measure, the third sent
over by the House.
Planned Easter Recess
The- lawmakers had been plan-
ning to start an Easter recess after
today to last until April 29. But
plans for this were awry; some
members said they already had
canceled plane reservations.
The most important item tied up
in the bill is the federal share of
public assistance payments in May
and June.
Sen. William Knowland (R-
Calif), the Republican leader, said
he did not believe Congress would
take a holiday "while there was
danger" that payments to the
needy, blind, aged 'and disabled
would not be met.w

Leaders attempted to persuade
Malone to yield the floor but he
would not do so. The Senate then
recessed with the understanding he
could resume his speech when it
meets at noon.
The bill, which has been in dis-

Mail Policies
Also Backed
Labor Department
Watching Hearings
WASHINGTON (R) - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower laughed off
yesterday a suggestion-attributed
to his brother Edgar - that the
President has come under "too
liberal" influences and is spending
too much of the taxpayers' money.
"Edgar has been criticizing me
since I was 5 years old," chuckled
the President at a news conference
which ranged from the simmering
Middle East to the question of
roadside billboards here at home.
In serious vein, President Eisen-
hower made these main points:
Suez Progress
1. "Some progress" seems to
have been made toward settling
the Suez Canal dispute, and this
country has not given up hope of
an agreement without recourse to
the UN Security Council.
2. This country has established
policies for helping any Middle
East nation attacked by a foreign
The policies he mentioned were
a U. S.-British-French agreement
in 1950 and the Eisenhower Doc-
trine resolution passed by Congress
this year, pledging aid upon re-
quest to any victim of Communist
aggression in the Middle East.
Approved Postal Cut
3. He gave his "complete ap-
proval" in advance to Postmaster
General Arthur Summerfield's cut-
ting off postal service last Satur-
day because Congress had failed to
vote emergency funds.
President Eisenhower said "the
real argument" was whether the
Post Office Department spent
money too rapidly in the past, and
he gave no opinion on that score.
4. The Labor Department is
watching "very closely" the Sen-
ate hearings on alleged misuse of
union funds to see whether any
government action is necessary,
Brother Protests Budget
All this developed after one of
the 227 reporters asked the Presi-
dent about a published story quot-
ing Edgar Eisenhower as protest-
ing the size of his brother's $71,-
800,000,000 budget and saying the
President has come under "too
liberal" influences.
The story - which Tacoma,
Wash., lawyer Edgar denied in
part-pictures him as disturbed
in particular about the influence
of another Eisenhower brother, Dr.
Milton S. Eisenhower; Sherman
Adams, chief assistant to the Pres-
ident; and industrialist Paul Hoff-
Asked if he would support the
re-election campaign of Sen. Jen-
ner (R-Ind) a critic of his foreign
policy, the President replied with
a smile: "Well, aren't you asking
a question way ahead of time? The
primaries are not over yet."
Bike Licenses
Now on Sale
At City Hall
City bicycle licenses valid
through April 30, 1958, went on
sale yesterday at the office of City
Clerk Fred J. Looker.
Cost of the new red with white
lettering licenses will be 50 cents.
The current yellow licenses with
black lettering, which sold 11,700
will expire at the end of this

According to Mr. Looker, ar-
rangements have been made for
the distribution of licenses at city
schools. He added that he in-
tends to make arrangements for
also selling licenses on the Uni-
versity campus.

Adams Offers Words of Advice to Law Students

Liberally punctuating his ad-
dress with penetrating, often hu-
morous law cases, John J. Adams,
'40L, member of a Cleveland law
firm, offered words of advice to
law students honored at last
night's annual Law School Honors
Adams, who specializes in labor
law, told the students. "You're

sure you're right. You must prove
what you believe to be the law,"
he advised.
On another side of the law
"practice", which Adams differen-
tiated from "profession", he ex-
plained, "E i t h e r your client
doesn't know what facts are im-
portant, or he thinks he knows,
but can't tell you the facts you
need to know.

Our opponent hemmend and haw-

'Can he plead a course of action
if I allow him to amend?'
"My partner answered, 'Yes, he
can,' and then proceeded to tell
the judge that it would be futile.
