Red China Ban
On Newsmen,
WASHINGTON (P) - Secretary
of State Johh Foster Dulles made
a qualified offer yesterday to al-
low "a strictly limited number" of
responsible newsmen to visit Red
China in order to give the Ameri-
can people first-hand information
on conditions there.
He laid down this policy at a
news conference but attached
these conditions:
1. Any such "one-shot experi-
ment" must not be permitted to
weaken the government ban on
travel by other Americans to the
Red-held mainland.
2. Prior approval by "leading
figures in the newspaper world"
is necessary before the State De-
partment acts.
Dulles In answer to a barrage
of questions also implied a possi-
ble third condition - such visits
by American reporters must not
be tied to visits to the United
Statenby Chinese Communist
The Secretary talked about the
long-standing ban after a reporter
noted The Associated Press board
of directors called anew Monday

for the right to send qualified
newsmen to report on conditions
in Red China.
He reported he has already
suggested 'a plan which news ex-
ecutives have rejected - "al-
though they made that suggestion
themselves originally."
Dulles reported this plan would
have involved giving passports to
a limited number of reporters.

Critic Analyzes,
Cowley Looks at Three Generations;
Youth Now 'Sits, Listens, Squirms'
Six words were used by Malcolm Cowley last night to analyze
today's generation of youth: prosperity, proximity, calamity, secur-
ity, secrecy and McCarthy,
The noted critic took a reflective look at three generations - the
1920's, the 1930's and today - describing the latter as "not strictly a
silent, but a listening generation."
In the 1920's, he explained in comparing that era to the present,
people danced to jazz, but now "youth just sits and listens and

Mundt Gets
Union News
Mundt (R-SD) said yesterday he
and two Republican colleagues on
the Senate Rackets Investigating
Committee have received a "dis-
turbing" report about some labor
practices in the Detroit area.
But Mundt denied in a state-
ment a report by columnist Drew
Pearson that Mundt and Sens.
Charles N. Ives (R-NY) and B. M.
Goldwater (R-Ariz) are "trying to
cook up an investigation they hope
will embarrass" Sen. Patrick V.
McNamara (D-Mich). McNamara
is a member of the committee and
a former president of Detroit Pipe
Fitters Union Local 636.
Ives also issued a statement
calling Pearson's column "inaccur-
ate and misleading." Ives said he,
Mundt and Goldwater did meet in
his office recently with a person
who voiced "certain charges"
about the situation in Michigan.
"But by no means did I or any-
one else present connected with
the United States Senate suggest
any investigation which might em-
barrass any member of the Sen-
ate," Ives said.
"I am confident that Sen. Mc-
Namara is an honorable gentle-
man and it is deplorable that these
unsubstantiated charges have been
Ives said he did not feel the
charges even warranted his men-
tioning them to Chairman Mc-
Clellan (D-Ark), of the Senate
Mundt's statement said McNa-
mara's name was mentioned "cas-
ually" by the wintess and that the
mention created "no particular
impression" on the thre.- senators
present. He told a reporter he can't
even recall the details of what was
said about McNamara, and that
he is surprised "the Pearson story
placed such emphasis on it and
gave such unfavorable publicity to
our Michigan colleague."
"Unless the Senator (McNa-
mara) askf to be heard, however,"
he continued, "I still have no in-
tention of giving publicity or call-
ing attention to the rather inci-
dental references made to him."

Tying this to secrecy and Mc-
Cartly, Cowley pointed out that
many important issues today are
not decided in open debate, a
situation which creates "indiffer-
ence" about issues. Secredy has
made people no longer interested
in politics because they no longer
have anything to say about poli-
tics, he claimed.
McCarthy has "given a period
of universally paranoid suspicions.

cal Issues Club, addressing a hot

20's Filled With Exuberance
"The 1920's," Cowley remarked,
"were filled with exuberance. The
1930 generation was one of topics
-they were faced with real prob-
lems and great searching - curi-
osity was evident. But now, discre-
tion is the order of the day, even
though it leads to ignorance of
basic issues in politics."
The former literary editor of
the New Republic described "cal-
amity" as a fear of "what is go-
ing to happen. We don't talk about
it, but we think - and this really
leads to the confession that an in-
teresting life is a conventional
lif e."
He said that today's youth has:
experienced a long period of pros-
perity. "This has given them,"
Cowley added, "a belief they must
share deeply in it.
Americans Act Alike
"By proximity I mean to sug-
gest that Americans are trying
hard to act like each other. This
has happened because they are
living much closer together today

cited as another reason for poli-

Gets Soviet
Peace Note
LONDON (P) - Soviet Premier
Nikolai Bulganin has sent a
personal letter to Prime Minister
Harold Macmillan expressing hope
for agreement on all issues in the
Middle East.
He also promised to stop nuclear
teats if the West will.
Moscow radio yesterday broad-
cast details of the letter delivered
to Macmillan three days ago.
The letter appeared to be geared
to the new Soviet campaign to
depict Moscow as a peace-loving
friend of the Arab world.
Urges Agreement
"Taking into consideration the{
complexity of the existing prob-
lems," Bulganin wrote, "one
should, with the object of improv-
ing and normalizing the situation
in the Middle East, immediately
take such steps on which it is
possible to reach an agreement."
Bulganin said the possibilities of
a settlement have not been ex-
hausted and added:
"I do not lose the hope that,
given the good will on the part of
the governments of the states con-
cerned, agreement can be reached
on all disputed issues."
Soviet Contribution
Bulganin said the Soviet Union
believes "the great powers would
make a big contribution to the
normalization of the situation in
the Middle East if they denounced
the use of force as the means of
settling the unsolved problems of'
that area."
"One may differ in the views on
some questions or others, for in-
stance, connected with the use of
the Suez Canal," Bulganin contin-
ued, "'but it is impermissible that
disputed issues are settled by arm-,
ed force, that reckless actions of
some states or others, still bran-
dishing arms, imperil the peace of
the area."
The letter was delivered at about
the same time the Soviet Union
was handing notes to the United
States, Britain and France urgingI
renunciation of force in the Middle
These notes also proposed to
scrap alll Western military bases
in the area as part of a general
settlement. The West considered

After the conference at the Au-
gusta National Golf Club, Presi-
dent Eisenhower's vacation head-
quarters, Stassen flew back to
Washington for a final session
with Secretary of State John Fos-
ter Dulles, then headed.for London
for disarmament talks.
Those talks, which started last
month and recessed over the Eas-
ter weekend, have given United
States officials cautious hope that
the Soviet Union finally may be
about ready to take a small, first
step toward disarmament.
Stassen declined to hold a news
conference after his meeting with
President Eisenhower. He refused
to meet with newsmen, the White
House said, because the London

WASHINGTON (/P)-Grants to-
taling more than ten and one half
million dollars to help school dis-
tricts in 22 states relieve over-
crowding resulting from federal
activities were announced by the
Office of Education yesterday.
The facilities which the money
will help build- are needed mainly
to care for children of families
attached to military installations,
the announcement said.
A total of $56,362,713 of such aid
has been allocated thus far this
fiscal year, which ends June 30.

Professor Paul G. Kauper of

today in the Union on "The Con-

Praesidium, the 80th President of
the ABA said that the Bar is now
trying to "do away with such evils
in administrative agencies today."
Maxwell illustrated the plight
of the Russians by using the Beria
case of 1954 as an example. He
pointed out that Beria was
brought to trial, convicted and
shot in a matter of days. He also
cited the cases of some 24 Hun-
garians who have been shot with-
out due process of law.
A member of the Hoover Com-
mission, Maxwell emphasized the
importance of separation of pow-
ers and checks and balances and
said, "the whole concept of the
Communist state, in which pow-
ers are vested in one group, is
hopelessly wrong."
Maxwell told his audience, "In
Russia the individual is the crea-'
ture of the state and serves no
good except the good of the state."
Maxwell pointed out that there
are some 72 administraitive tribu-
nals, 30 of which have their own
criteria for lawyers to meet be-
fore they can practice before
them. Maxwell said, "The Trea-
sury Department spends $500,000
of the taxpayer's money annually
to investigate the merits of the
lawyers who wish to practice be-
fore them and this is wrong."
