Bitain To Build
Bases In Kenya
Air, Sea, Land System To Establish
Midpoint Between 'Home,' Colonies
LONDON (P)-Britain has decided to build up a big new air, land
and sea base system in Kenya as part of her revamped global strategy,
British officials reported yesterday.
This is likely to transform the East African colony, an equatorial
land of 225,000 square miles, into a sort of imperial halfway house
linking the British home islands militarily with its colonies and
commonwealth partners in Asia and the Pacific.
The British decision has been followed by a hush-hush reappraisal
of the project for a new pan-African defense grouping.

Michigan Edges Iowa
9-8 To Regain Lead
Michigan's baseball team won a close, controversial game from
Iowa in the 10th inning yesterday, 9-8, to move ahead of the Hawk-
eyes and claim the lead in the Big Ten race.
The winning run came in the last of the tenth, when Iowa relief
pitcher Don Dobrino walked Bob Sealby with the bases loaded, forcing
Bruce Fox across the plate with Michigan's victory margin.
The final pitch of the game was close. The umpire's decision set
off a storm of protest from Dobrino and Iowa Coach Otto Vogel.

The game started an hour and 10 minutes late due to the poor
conditions of the field. Intermittent showers during the game made

one-man control of the SuezCana

If he gets such a ruling, France
may permit French flag shipping
to use the canal again, pending a

way's international character.
France is now the only major

Canal authority, and French ship-

pinch of foreign competition.
It was pressure from these ship-
owners which led France to appeal
to the Security Council, according
to persons in close touch with
events in Paris.
Premier Guy Mollet is ada-
mantly opposed to acknowledging
Nasser's control of the canal, and
would resign rather than abandon
this position.
Britain and other members of
the Suez Canal Users' Association,
authorized their ships last week to
use the canal and pay tolls "under
protest" to Cairo.
Thus virtually isolated on the
world diplomatic stage on this
issue, France contends Egyptian
canal authorities must commit

Eisenhower after the President
scaled down his original request
of $4,400,000,000.
"I am confident Congress will
not sabotage the program and will
be careful to avoid any cuts that

country." Seri. Bridges said. "But
I think Congress is determined to

the Foreign Relations Committee,
said in a separate interview he
thinks President Eisenhower's ap-

his $71,800,000,000 spending bud-

sion on congress.
"But I believe he is going to

have better success arguing for
his foreign aid program than he
did for his budget," Sen. Spark-
man said.
