'Beck Used Post
For Private End'
Ex-Counselor Loomis Testifies
To Senate Racket Probers
WASHINOTON (I)-An investment counselor who broke with
Dave Beck swore yesterday it was "quite apparent" the president of
the Teamsters Union used his position for the financial benefit of
himself and his family-
Fred Loomis of Seattle told Senate rackets probers he quit as
investment adviser to Beck and the union when Beck declined to clear
up "talk of your receiving a kickback" of $2,500 on a proposed union
loan to finance a Honolulu apartment house.
In a day which brought out additional evidence of what a special
Senate committee has called Beck's improper use of union funds, two

ing Co., testified the firm accorded
Beck "favored treatment" in the
beer business and that Beck inter-
vened for the company in a strike
involving two nonteamster unions.
'Scared of Beck'
The committee chairman Sen.
John L. McClellan (D-Ark.) sug-
gested that Anheuser-Busch was
afraid of Beck and "got involved
with Beck and .couldn't get loose."
Beck has been accused of dip-
ping into the union treasury for
hundreds of thousands of dollars
and now is out on bail on federal
income tax evasion charges. He
has said he only borrowed the
money from the union and every
cent will be paid back.
The teamsters' titan wasn't on
hand yesterday to hear the latest
testimony against him. The com-
mittee intends to build up more
of it Friday before bringing Beck
back to the witness stand.
Hired in 1952
Loomis said he was hired on a
retainer basis in December, 1952,
to advise the teamsters on invest-
ing some 30 millions of union
He said the "blowup" came Feb.
15, 1955, after he repeatedly cau-
tioned Beck against holding any
financial interest in the channels
through which the investments
were made.
The reason for the break, he
said, was that he considered Beck,
to be "acting improperly."
Millions of dollars of Interna-
tional Union funds Loomis said,
were invested in mortgages
through a firm called the National
Mortgage Co., of Seattle.
He was told Beck bought a third
interest in this firm for Joseph
McAvoy, the nephew of Beck's
wife. The witness said that against
his advice, the bulk of the union
money put into mortgages was
channeled through this concern.

tired musical comedy star and
former Metropolitan Opera Bas-1
so, died early yesterday at his
home in his sleep. He never re-
covered from a stroke suffered
April 30.
An internationally known op-
era star for some 25 years, he be-
came a Broadway matinee idol as
the middle-aged lover of thet
smash hit "South Pacific." f
His song, "Some Enchanted,

School Help
Bill Passes
Proposal May Face
Trouble in Congress
Due to Budget Drive
WASI4INGTON (/)-The House
Education Committee voted 20 to 9
Thursday for a bill to provide one
and one-half billion dollars in
federal aid for public school con-
The bill, although trimmed half
a billion dollars in committee
Wednesday, still faced rough going
because of the economy drive in
Rep. C. M. Bailey (D-W.Va.), a
leading supporter of the legislation,
said he was sure that the reduc-
tion helped its chances and he
was "inclined to think" it would
pass the House.
On the other hand, Rep. W. H.
Ayres. (R-O.) said that "barring an
unforeseen outcry from the public,
there isn't a deader pigeon on the
'awaiting action' roost on Capitol
Hill" than the school bill.
. Here is a comparison of the com-
mittee and administration bills:
Committee bill-300 million dol-
lars a year for five years in grants
to. the states, with distribution tc
be based half on basis of school
age population and half on the
basis of need.
Administration bill-325 million
dollars a year for four years, a
total of $1,300,000,000, with distri-
bution to be based on need.
Democratic bill offered by Rep.
A. B. Kelley (D-Pa.) calls for 600
million dollars a year for six years,
a total of $3,600,000,000, distribu-
tion to be based on school age
Adults .Need
Professor Howard Y. McClusky
of the education school made a
plea for greater emphasis on adult
education at an informal meeting
of the Student National 5ducati'on
Association last night.
"The old cliche 'you can't teach
an old dog new tricks' isn't true,"
McClusky stated. "The only diffi-
culty lies in disuse."
He emphasized the need for
adult education by pointing out
that in a field such as medicine,
physicians are obligated to keep
abreast of the latest developments.
This philosophy should be carried
out in other fields as well.
Prof. McClusky went on to de-
scribe the different areas in which
adult education is being pursued,
explaining that in many cases, the
programs are not labeled as such.
The largest program of adult
education in the state of Michigan
is the agricultural extension pro-
gram, he explained. Another area
in which it is becoming progres-
sively more important is in large
firms, many of which are insti-
tuting programs of education for
their employees.
He also said that the growth of
adult education programs in pub-
lic schools is "phenomenal," and
cited public libraries, museums,1
churches, and settlements as otherj
contributing factors.



From Foreign Aid Request

Post Office
Budget Hike
Voted Down
Senate Committee
Says More Money
Might Come Later
Appropriations Committee slam-
med the door on Postmaster Gen-
eral Arthur H. Summerfield's de-
mand for more money yesterday,
but indicated he could try again
The committee voted not to re-
store one penny of the 58-million-
dollar cut imposed by the.House in
Summerefield's three and one-
fourth billion-dollar regular ap-
propriation for the fiscal year
starting July 1.
However, S e n a t e Democratic
Leader Lyndon B. Johnson (D-
Texas), a committee member, told
newsmen this did not necessarily
mean the committee would reject
a later request for a supplemental
In addition to the 58 million
whacked off by the House, Sum-
merfield said he would need 70 to
90 million more to take care of an
unexpected upsurge in Post Office
Department business.
He talked of cutting service
again, as he did last March in a
squabble over this year's funds,
unless he got what he said he
needed for next year. He men-
tioned July 1, when the new gov-
ernment year starts, as a time for
cutting down on service.
Rojas' Regime
Quiets Dowry
Bank Officials
BOGOTA, Colombia (M)- The
government cracked down yester-
day on striking bankers in tense
But at the same time President
Gen. Gustavo Rojas Pinilla acceded
to a request from the Roman
Catholic primate of Colombia to
cancel a progovernment rally lest
bloodshed occur.
President Rojas' regime struck
back at bankers who have sus-
pended operations in protest
against his election to another
four-year term. One bank was or-
dered seized and bank employes
drafted into military service.
The action came as business
reached a virtual standstill in the
capital. Factories and shops re-
mained closed. Military police pa-
trolled the streets in strength.
At the request of Crisanto Cardi-
nal Luque, Roman Catholic arch-
bishop of Bogota, a progovern-
ment rally set for Saturday was
called off.

Campus Chest Drive Continues

-Daily-Norm Jacobs
... many helping hands
By Panhel
Panhellenic Board of Delegates
yesterday discussed the proposed
sorority contact rules to comply
with next year's spring rushing
The tentative contact rules are:
F r o m September registration
until pledging, March 2, no soror-
ity member may enter any inde-
pendent women's housing unit and
no independent woman may enter
affiliated housing units execept
during approved rushing parties.
From the first set of parties'
Feb. 7 until pledging, strict con-
tact rules will be in effect.
During this period there may be
no contact between affiliated and
independent women unless mem-
bers of two houses are present.
Affiliated women will be prohibited
from telephoning rushees in dor-
mitories or League houses.
Visiting in dormitories and inde-
pendent Leagues houses also will
be forbidden.
Two weeks ago at the delegates'
meeting, Panhel Rushing Chair-
man Elizabeth Ware, '58, explained
the rationale behind the proposed
rule. She said Executive Council
realizes it would be impossible to
have strict rules for the entire
period because:
1) Contact between independ-
ents and affiliated on campus
committees and projects is essen-
2) Strict contact rules would not
promote friendly relations between
the two groups.



Campus Chest will conduct the
second day of its bucket drive and
sell late permissions today to in-
crease the $1300 collected so far
for charity.
With $375 collected yesterday
from the bucket drive and house

obtained 20 per cent of its $6500
goal. The drive will run through
Late permissions for May 18

Council from noon until 5:30 p.m.
on the Diagonal. In case of rain
they will be sold in the lobby of
Mason Hall. The one dollar paid
for the 1:30 a.m. permissions will
be donated to Campus Chest.

drive can be made on the diag-
onal in the engineering arch and
in front of both the Union and
Women's Athletic Building.
Off-campus contributions. can

Nickel's Arcade and in front of
the dime store at State and North
University Streets. The Student
Activities Building will also ac-
cept contributions for the drive
from 3 to 5 p.m. today.
It's too early to comment on
the success of the drive since
many of the important money re-
turns, such as those from frater-
nities, sororities and the dormi-
tories on the hill are not yet in,
Harlan Givelber, '57, chairman
of the Campus Chest Board, said.
Chest Board
The board works under Student
Government Council, handling all
phases of- Campus Chest planning
and drive work, as well as alloca-
tion of its funds.

tives from SGC, Panhellenic As-
sociation, Assembly Association,'
Inter-House Council, Inter-Fra-
ternity Council, Jr. Panhel, Jr.

committee. Julie Fahnestock; '58,;
is in charge of solicitations, and
Roberta Schulz, '58, is chairman4
of the secretariat committee.

Hold Joint
Joint meeting of League and
Union Councils was held last night
at the League for familiarization
of the two groups.
In a discussion of League-Union
relations, Marylen Segel, '58Ed,
president of Women's League, said,
"Being in two separate buildings
doesn't mean that we can't work
Don Young, '58, cited the Union-
League Calendar, to be published
next year, as one instance of the
two groups working together to
serve the campus community.
The 138-page calendar will go
on sale during Orientation Week
next fall.


TV Speech
To Explain
Administration Plans
Government Costs
Around $71 Billion
WASHINGTON ()-President
Dwight D. Eisenhower trimmed
520 million dollars off his foreign
aid budget yesterday, then laid
plans to defend his whole spending
program in two nationwide radio
and TV speeches.
The White House asked the
major networks for time early next
week, preferably Tuesday night.
Under the administration's
plans, the cost of the government
in the fiscal year beginning July
1 would be more than 71 billion
dollars. But members of Congress
are talking of reductions in terms
of from three to six billion dollars.
James C. Hagerty, White House
press secretary, said that in addi-
tion to next week's speech the
President would like to address
the nation sometime during the
week of May 19 on the subject,
"Why Mutual Aid is so Essential
in Winning the Peace." The net-
works also have been asked to set
this up.
President Eisenhower's foreign
aid cut made amid congressional
talk of far deeper slashes, reduced
the proposed mutual security pro-
gram to $3,880,000,000 for fiscal
1958. The President voiced a con-
viction that it would be risky to
cut any deeper,
Asked whether the White House
expects to get free radio-TV time,
Hagerty said he simply had told
the networks the President would
like to make two major speeches.
Ordinarily the networks do not
charge for time for presidential
addresses which are not clearly
labeled as political.
