Inspection of Arms
Approved by Dulles
Arctic Disarmament Plan To Relax
International Tension-Secretary
* WASHINGTON (R)'i - Secretary of State John Foster Dulles said
yesterday he favors a limited arms inspection agreement with Rus-
sia covering sparsely populated arctic area such as Siberia, Alaska and
northern Canada.
Dulles said it would be easier to win Russian acceptance of such
an arctic disarmament plan than one covering a heavily populated
European zone where there are political complications.
The secretary told his news conference an arctic agreement would
relax East-West tensions because it would include aerial inspection
of "potential launching sites

Comm ttee
Hears Beck
Stock Story
WASHINGTON (R) - Senate
probers were given an inside story
yesterday of how Dave Beck or-
ganized 52,000 employes of Mont-
gomery Ward & Co. into the
Teamsters union after supporting
the management in a bitter proxy
fight two years ago.
'The story came from Alfons
Landa of Washington attorney for
the Fruehauf Trailer Co. and a
witness before the Senate Rackets
I Investigating Committee.
Landa testified the Teamsters
'Union, headed by Beck, held two
million dollars worth of stock in
the mail order house and had in-
tended to vote it for financier
Louis Wolfson in Wolfson's 1955
fight to wrest control from the
Sewell Avery management.
"I said I was sure that if he
would support the Montgomery
Ward management he could have
the opportunity of organizing
Teamsters Union," the witness
Montgomery Ward into the
said.
Beck seized on this as "a good
idea," Landa testified. He said
Beck told him Avery had resisted
all previous attempts by the
Teamsters to unionize the mail
order company.
Landa said he passed the word
along to Montgomery Ward, the
Teamsters voted against Wolfson,
and subsequently the Teamsters
organized the employes.
Expressing indignation at the
story, Sen. Barry Goldwater (R-
Ariz.) demanded of Landa:
"Do you think it's proper for
unions to go into proxy fights and
buy control of companies just so
they can organize the workers re-
gardless of the workers' wishes?"
Landa replied he had never
thought of it that way. "I just
ade the suggestion to Mr. Beck
that I thought it would overcome
the resistance of Mr. Sewell Av-
ery," the lawyer said.
SGC To Hear
FStudy. Motion
On Athletics
Student Government Council
will again consider a motion to
study intercollegiate athletics at
the University, at 7:30 p.m. today
at the Student Activities Building,
according to Janet Neary, '58. ex-
ecutive vice-president.
The motion had been tabled last
week until it could be determined
just how much information in this
area the council already had.
At the same meeting, appoint-
ments will be made to the new
International Center Study Comn-
mittee. This committee was set up
last week to learn the role and
effectiveness of the International
Center.
The council will also hear a re-
por; from Harlan Givelber. '57,
on the Campus Chest drive.
Druids Tap
New Members
Druids, sons of magic,
Foretellers of the future,
Priests and judges-
very knowing, wise--
The fires in the Stonehenge
Are set slight
With flames to heaven raised;
Look upon the Aywends,

Called from out thy
mighty grove,
The uninformed who would
seek thy light

which might be used in an atomic
war."
Other Inspections Later
Dulles said it would make it
"easier, almost inevitable that
other East-West a g r e e m e-en t s
would follow providing arms in-
spection in other areas of the
world."
He suggested the arctic areas
would be "an easier place to start"
because only three governments,
the United States, Russia and
Canada, need be involved. Canada,
he said, has already made it clear
it is "sympathetically disposed" to
such a disarmament test.
Dulles did not rule out the pos-
sibility of agreeing with Russia on
a similar aerial inspection zone in
Europe, but, he noted, the diffi-
culties in Europe are greater be-
cause more countries and people
are involved.
Other Problems
On other international prob-
lems Dulles said:
1) The United States is "consid-
ering introduction of more mod-
ern, more effective weapons" into
South Korea to replace outdated
equipment and to counter viola-
tions of the five-year armistice by
Red China. The Chinese Reds, he
said, have sent planes, new wea-
pons and other supplies into
Northern Korea.
2) This government would not
oppose a move by Israel to send a
"test ship" into the Egyptian-
operated Suez Canal. It would,
however, oppose any attempt by
Israel "to settle the matter by
force or acts of war." '.
3) It would be "a rather serious
blow" to American leadership if
Congress refuses to approve Am-
erican membership in the "atoms
for peace" international organiza-
tion which President Eisenhower
proposed nearly four years ago.
In handling a flurry of ques-
tions about American disarma-
ment policy, Dulles cautiously ex-
pressed some confidence the Rus-
sians are seriously interested in
some sort of limited agreement
with the West.
IFC Head Tax.
Hike Passed
Fraternity Presidents' Assembly!
unanimously passed a proposed
Inter-Fraternity Council head tax
increase last night.
The former rate, $1.50 for two
semesters paid at the beginning
of the year, will be increased to
one dollar per semester, payable
at the beginning of the semester.
Increased expenses and the need
for an adequate working reserve
were given as the reason for the!
increase by Mal Cumming, '58BAd,!
IFC treasurer.
IFC expenditures are financed
by pledging fees as well as the
head tax.

WASHINGTON (P) - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower told the
nation last night "the price of
peace is high.-
He said he sees no immediate
prospect for "relaxation of inter-
national tensions" to warrant a
substantial cut in federal spend-
ing.
Appealing directly to the people
in an effort to stem the budget-
cutting tide in Congress, the Pres-
ident said in an address prepared
for coast-to-coast television and
radio broadcast:
"There is no cutrate price forI
security."
Huge But Necessary
In a defense of the administra-
tion's $71,800,000,000 spending
program for the year starting July
1, the President declared the bud-
get "is huge," but he called it
necessary to help wage peace and
prevent war.
"I can see no immediate relaxa-
tion of international tensions to
provide the basis now for sub-
stantial reductions of these spend-
ing programs for preserving and
waging peace," President Eisen-
hower said.
"In fact, the gains we have al-
ready made impel us to press for-
ward with no letup."
Debt Payment
Speaking from his White House
office, President Eisenhower noted
that more than seven billion dol-
lars in the budget is earmarked
for payment of interest on the
national debt.
Referring to it as an obligation
which must be met, the President
went on to say:
"Ours is not like the Soviet gov-
ernment, which recently told its
people it would no longer pay the
interest on its government sav-
ings bonds." 9
Reiterates Views
Repeating what he has said
several times during the last few
weeks, President Eisenhower said
of the. budget:
"No great reductions in it are
possible unless Congress elimin-
ates or curtails existing federal
programs, or all of us demand less
service from the government, or
unless we are willing to gamble
with the safety of our country."
Earlier Monday, President Ei-
senhower was described as con-
cerned over the possibility Con-
gress might cut deeply into his
spending proposals for aircraft
and guided missiles.

Indict Hoffa
On Charges
Of Wiretap
NEW YORK (W) - James R.
Hoff a, Midwest boss of the Team-
sters Union, was indicted yester-
day on charges of tapping tele-
phones of the union's Detroit
headquarters.
Hoff a allegedly dipped into the
union's till for $8,429 to pay for
the wiretaps. The government
said he was able to sit in his pri-'
vate office and listen in on tele-
phone calls elsewhere in the head-I
quarters.
The purpose, a federal grand
jury claimed, was to eavesdrop on
union members who might be po-
tential witnesses before a Senate
Rackets Investigating Committee
and a federal grand jury in De-
troit.
Indicted with Hoffa were Ber-
nard Brennan of Detroit. presi-
dent of Teamsters Local 337; and
Bernard Spindel, a professional
New York wiretapper. Wiretap-
ping is legal on the state level in
New York with court permission.

'Values May
Halt Growth,'
Kniffen Says
Prof. Fred Kniffen of Louisiana
State University, said yesterday
that "certain cultural values may
halt technological growth."
"Our insistence on the disposal
of sewage because culturally we
cannot accept its reuse," he ex-
plained. "results in the unneces-
sary waste of good fertilizer."
Culture is not "like a coat that
can be taken on or off without
difficulty," said Prof. Kniffen,
chairman of the geography and
anthropology departments at LSU.
,"Frequently people do things
because their parents have done
them - rather than as a result
of logical or rational thinking."
As an example, he described a
community of Mexican fishermen
who live near a lake which has
been dried up for years.
"Rather than develop a new
profession which would be appro-
priate for the new geographic
conditions," Prof. Kniffen said,
"they continue to travel great dis-
tances to other bodies of water
just to maintain their role as fish-
ermen."

158 FEWER:
Dorm Reapplications
Less Than. LastYear
Reapplications for men's residence halls took a slight dip under
similar figures compiled for the same period last year.
According to recent information drawn up after the April 26 dead-
line for returning room reapplications, a decline of 158 renewals
was noted from last year's total of 1,519 reapplications.
Before these figures were tabulated, administrators feared a
mass "student exodus" from men's residence halls might occur as a
result of last December's food disturbance.
However, after a "noraml" return was established, Peter A.
Ostafin, director of housing, said the "expected exodus did not take
place."
Karl D. Streiff, assistant dean of men,'explained the slight de-
cline as due to doubling up of rooms and expected increases in room
will enable the quadrangles to ac-

On Change
Next Week
Niehuss Says U'
Will Not Commence
Special Floor Action
By MICHAEL KRAFT
Special to The Daily
LANSING-An increase of $1.
222,486 In the University's oper-
ating budget was approved by the
House Ways and Means Committee
last night.
The committee bill, raising the
Senate's appropriation of $29,131,-
000, will reach the House floor for
a vote early next week.
University Vice-President and
Dean of Faculties Marvin L. Nie-
huss indicated that the University
will not initiate any floor action to
raise the appropriation further.
Permits Operation
"While below the amount we
need for most efficient operation,
it will permit operating without
serious 'impairment on a tempor-
ary basis for next year," he said,
The appropriation will still
"probably have to be supplemented
by a substantial fee increase," Nie-
huss said. First priority, he added,
will be salary increases for the pre-
sent faculty and staff.
"We would have tried to do this
with the lower appropriation, but
now we'll be able to make at least
minimum provisions for additional
students."
Senate Budget 'Impossible'
He said it would have been im-
possible to operate on the original
29 million budget passed by 'the
Senate.
The House Ways and Means
Committee bill which increased the
Senate-approved $84,276,894 total
operating budget for higher educa-
tion by over two million dollars
marked another break in the Re-
publican "hold - the - line" policy
against increased state spending.
The Republican proposed gen
eral fund budget for the state has
now reached 340 million dollars,
about 11 million" dollars higher
than the spending program origin-
ally submitted by House'and Sen-
ate finance committees.
New Taxes Proposed
Proposals to raise additional
state revenue through increased
taxes on cigarettes, beer and wine
await a final vote next week. A
corporation profits tax bill was
already defeated in the House and
cannot be passed this session.
The House Committee als o
granted increases to other Institu-
tions of higher education and the
state's mental health department.
An increase of $413,993 was
granted to Michigan State Uni-
versity bringing their total oper-
ating budget to $26,133,193. Mental
health institutions received a $1,-
095,000 boost. This raises their
budget to $62,465,897.
Action by the House Ways and
Means Committee followed a series
of hearings with representatives of
Universities and mental health in-
stitutions.

that they did not know the exact

They indicated the hike would
be in keeping with rising food and

Wage grants to University em-

Censure Move
Suspends TWO
At Wisconsin
Measures have been taken by
University of Wisconsin faculty
and Student .Senate to censure
students participating in the May
9 water riot.
The riot followed the pattern of
student action last year at the
same time.
The faculty committee on stu-
dent conduct and appeals tempor-
arily suspended two students ap-
prehended by Madison police dur-
ing the water fights. The men
were also suspended from their
fraternity until they are reinstated
by the University.
Dean of Men Theodore Zillman
said action against organized
houses participating in the water
fight would be discussed at the
next meeting of the Student Life
and Interests committee.
Student Senate, in a special
meeting on May 10, condemned
students' "disgraceful activities."
The first of two bills passed
resolved:
"That Student Senate, acting
for the entire student body, apolo-
gize to the Dean of Men, the Madi-
son police, and the .City of Madi-
son...
"That Senate recommend that
. student court partake in the
full and unequivocal prosecution
of the guilty parties if the persons
are members of the university."
