Criticism of Pro-Western Leaning
Voiced by Former Army Leaders
AMMAN, Jordan (P) - Premier Hussein Khalidi spoke up sharply
yesterday for his government's pro-Western leanings.
He was. defending against attacks on the kingdom's policies by
two military leaders who fled to Syria.
The Eisenhower Doctrine was a factor in their long-range debate.
Denounces Statements
Khalidi denounced statements by Maj. Gen. Ali Abu Hayari and
Maj. Gen. Ali Abu Nuwar, both former chiefs of staff.

'U' May Ask Hearings
On Budget Reduction
By MICHAEL KRAFT
University officials will "probably" request the Senate Appropria-
tions Committee to hold an open hearing on the University's reduced
budget, Marvin L. Niehuss, University Vice President and Dean of
Faculties said yesterday.
"While we have not yet sent in a formal request, we will definitely
be meeting with committee members this week," Niehuss said.
The appropriations bill, which cut the University's revised oper-
ating budget request from $33,000,000 to $29,131,000, has been referred
back to the Senate Appropriations Committee and will be reported to
the Senate floor by Friday.
Capital Outlay
Also under discussion is the capital outlay request for University
construction which the committee cut in half, leaving $7,710,000 and

Claimed Deceit
He accused the present Jordan
government of 'fsheer deceit
aimed at paving the way for
American colonialism to complete
its plots against the liberal Arab
movement."
Hayari succeeded Nuwar as
chief of staff and held the job two
' days before fleeing to Syria.'

WASHINGTON (A)-Counsel fo:
James R. Hoffa, Midwest boss o:
the 'Teamsters Union, opened
full-scale attack yesterday on a:
indictment charging Hoffa wit
conspiring to pry secrets from th
Senate Rackets Committee.
The lawyers asked for dismissa
of the indictment on thre
grounds,
First, they contended Hoffa wa
deprived of his right to a prelini
nary hearing after his midnigh
arrest in a Washington hote
March 13; second, that the federa
grand jury which returned th
indictment was "infected" by "im
proper publicity" in the case; an
finally that count three fails t
state an offense.
Cited as Grounds
The last two contentions als
were cited as grounds for dismiss
irig the indictment against Hy-
man I. Fischbach, a Miami attor-
ney accused with Hoffa of plotting
to plant a spy on the Senate Com
mittee's staff.
The senators have been investi
gating Teamsters Union affairs.
Hoffa and Fischbach pleaded in
nocent in U.S. District Cour
March 29. Their trial was set for
May 27.
Ask for Delay
In the event the court refuses t
dismiss the indictment, counsel for
the two men asked that the tria
be postponed for six months be-
cause they said "there exists in the
District of Columbia at the present
time such great prejudice" against
the defendants.
They said this prejudice was "a
result of improper and hostile pub-
licity.",
The first count of the indictment
against the men accuses them of
conspiring to defraud the United
States.
Sen. J. L. McClellan (D-Ark)
committee chairman, has said
John R. Cheasty cooperated with
the committee from the outset and
was given papers which he passed
on to Hoffa with the knowledge
of the FBI.

Dulles Says~
World War
Improbable
NEW YORK (')-Secretary of
State John Foster Dulles yesterday
spurned any suggestion of inevit-
able war between the free world
and international communism.
He said armed aggression is no
longer "a paying( proposition."
In his first foreign policy speech
of President Dwight D. Eisenhow-
er's second term, Dulles counseled
patience on many fronts - in the
Middle East, those involving rest-
less Red satellites behind the
Iron Curtain, and on disarma-
ment.
Rededicated U. S.
He rededicated the U n it e d
States to the United Nations and
its ideals of peace with justice,
telling critics, "that is no abdica-
tion of foreign policy.
"It is the exercise of foreign
policy, and its exercise in the way
which represents the best hope
for humanity."
Touching briefly on the horrors
of modern warfare, Dulles told the
annual Associated Press luncheon
regarding deep differences be-
tween Russia and the free world.
Divides World
"Indeed, history suggests that a
conflict as basic as that dividing
the world of freedom and the
world of international communism
ultimately erupts in war.
"That suggestion we reject. But
to reject in terms of words or
hopes is not enough.
"We must also 'exert ourselves
to the full to prevent it.
"To this task, the American
people must unswervingly dedicate1
their hearts and minds throughout
the years ahead."
Bus Schedules;
For AA Readyt
Detailed bus schedules are now
available from the Ann Arbor
Transit, Inc., John W. Rae, com-
pany co-ordinator, announced yes-I
terday.j
The schedules, which have been
missing since the Transit began
operations a wee: ago, are being
distributed on all buses. The
pamphlets containing the sche-
dules also include rates and the
bus routes.
University students with identi-
fication cards can ride for a 15
cent rate, according to the pamph-I
let. Substantially the same routesI
exist as under the previous trans-
it system with a new route, Route
5, being initiated.t
This route extends from Main3

'no funds for planning' or begin-
ning new construction.
"We'll ask the committee to
raise the appropriations, but we
have to find out exactly where
they stand," Niehuss pointed out.
Action (by University officials
follows a University Regents reso-
lution directing the administra-
tion to "do everything possible to
persuade the Legislature that the
appropiration bill introduced in
he Legislature is inadequate to
maintain the University of Michi-
gan as a quality educational insti-
tution.
The motion urged the measure
be reconsidered and the Univer-
sity's appropriation be increased.
Voiced Feeling
Niehuss voiced the feeling that
even if the Legislature does in-
crease the appropriation, it will
be "far below what we think we
need."
University President Harlan
Hatcher called the bill "inade-
quate even for the University's
minimum needs."
Niehuss said both a raise in stu-
dent fees and cuts in enrollment
had been discussed. "Probably
both would be likely," he pre-
dicted.
Limit Enrollment
Keeping the student enrollment
at 22,000 rather than expanding
to next year's projected enroll-
ment of 24,100 would save approx-
imately $1,500,000 he estimated.
At the last Regents meeting, he
said 165 new faculty members
would be needed to handle the in-
creased enrollment. No funds have
been provided in the committee's
recommendations for either fac-
ulty increases or raises.
The Regents have not made any
decision on a tuition increase. At
their March meeting, they en-
dorsed a suggestion by President
Hatcher that the University might
increase by 20 to 25 per cent if
the Legislature a p p r o p r i a t e d
enough funds to reach the $34,-
131,458 the University originally
requested.
"I don't see how we will get by
without substantial tuition in-
creases," Niehuss said.
In Lansing yesterday, Demo-
cratic Party chairman Neil Staeb-
ler announced the Democrats
would would stage a legislative
conference Saturday. He said it
will consider ways of combatting
the Republican State Budget pro-
posals which he called "an out-
rageous insult" to the people.

COURT RULES:
Segregation
Appeal Sent
To Districts
WASHINGTON () - The Su-
preme Court emphasized again
yesterday it expects federal dis-
trict courts to keep tabs on steps
toward eliminating racial segrega-
tion in public schools.
It did so in denying without
comment an appeal brought by the
Wichita Falls, Texas school Board.
The board had appealed from a
decision by the United States
Court of Appeals in New Orleans
directing a district court to keep
on' its docket a suit by Negro
children for admission to public
schools nearest their homes.
Requests Desegregation
The school board contended that
under its policy of desegregation
of all schools the Negroes' request
had been granted.
The District Court for northern
Texas agreed with the board and
dismissed the complaint.
The court of appeals, however,
directed the district court to re-
tain jurisdiction in the case.
Right of Transfer
It said that while the Negro
children had been admitted to the
public school nearest their homes,
"It is by no means certain that
they had the same free privilege
of transfer to or attendance at any
school of their choice as was ac-
corded the white children."
In another action, the court
agreed to rul: on constitutionality
of a law requiring deportation of
aliens who at any time were mem-
bers of the Communist party.
Critics Ask
U.S. Control
Radiation
WASHINGTON (') - A member
of the genetics committee of the
National Academy of Sciences yes-
terday criticized what he called
the government's failure to carry
out a year-old academy recom-
mendation for a national system
of individual record-keeping on
radiation exposure.
Dr. H. Bentley Glass of Johns
Hopkins Universty declared that
last year's estimate of the average
reproductive c e 11 exposure of
Americans to medical and dental
X-rays and other medically used
radioactive substances has since
been revised upwards.
In Chicago Adlai E. Stevenson
yesterday renewed his plea that
steps be taken to control the test-
ing of large nuclear bombs.
The 1952 and 1956 Democratic
presidential nominee, who had
called for such steps during the
past campaign, issued a statement
to that effect after he had con-
ferred for an hour with a special
representative of Japan, Dr. Maso-'
toshi Matsushita, who is visiting
Western leaders and is expressing
opposition to further nuclear
tests.
"If the United States continues
the tests, it would lose its moral
influence in Asia," Dr. Matsushita
told newsmen after the parley
with Stevenson.

Faculty Senate yesterday informally approved 10 nominations for
the Senate Advisory Committee, and accepted two names as'candidates

Soviets Told,
-Eden Month
In Advance,
Bulganin Predicted
Holy War as Reprisal
LONDON () - Russia warned
Britain a month before the Brit-
ish-French attack on Egypt that
the Arabs would sabotage the Suez
Canal and Middle East oil work-
ings in reprisal.
Moscow also predicted the Arab
states would meet the invaders
with a holy war.
The sabotage materialized. The
holy war did not.
Warnings Conveyed
The warnings were conveyed by'-
Soviet Premier Nikolai Bulganin
to then Prime Minister Anthony
Eden in a secret exchange of let-
ters last fall when the Suez Canal
crisis was rushing toward a show-
down.
Prime Minister Harold Macmil-
lan's office hurriedly made the ex-
change public five hours after
Moscow announced it was publish-
ing today the exchanges between
Bulganin and Eden and French
Premier Guy 1Mollet,
An indication that 10 Downing
St. acted with decisive haste was
the fact that no mimeographed
copies of the letters were ready as
they would be normally under such
circumstances.
Called in.Reporters
Instead, British reporters ac-
cedited to Parliament were called
in and the letters were readto
them,
Whe decision of the British to let
themselves be smoked out and put
their own initial emphasis qn the
exchanges was apparently designed
to blunt a renewed Soviet propa-
ganda drive to picture the Rus-
sians as friends and protectors of
the Arab World.
Moscow's maneuver to publish
the letters came right behind
weelend notes to the United
States, Britain and France urging
renunciation of force in the Middle
East and the scrapping of Western
military bases.
Moscow Concerned
Western diplomats in London
speculated Moscow was concerned
by the apparent success of the
Eisenhower Doctrine of aid for the
Middle East and the recent patch-
ing up of British-U.S. relations
that had been strained by the
attack on Egypt.
"Such correspondence is not us-
ually published," said one Western
diplomat, "and it tends to reduce
the value of personal contacts be-
tween heads of state."
Bulganin predicted that if Sri-
tain and France attacked Egypt
"all the Arabs would rise in sacred
struggle against a foreign inva-
sion." This failed to materialize.
Syria, Jordan and Saudi Arabia,
bound to Egypt in a military pact,
did not rush to the rescue.
Bulganin's prediction of damage
to the Suez Canal and Middle East
oil turned out a little better.
Egypt sank ships to block the
canal and Syria blew up the pipe-
lines from Iraq inside Syria, there-
by cutting the flow of vital oil to
Europe to a trickle.
