$1,400,000 raise to five other state universities.
Although the committee refused to increase its original University
budget proposal of 30 million dollars, it proposed that Mjchigan State

Ike Speech
To Support
Foreign Aid
WASHINGTON (P) - Presiden
Dwight D. Eisenhower, reportedl
satisfied with the impact made by
his defense of the budget las
week, drafted another radio-T
speech yesterday in support of hi:
$3,880,000,000 foreign aid program
The President will address the
nation at 7:30 p.m. today.
He is also expected to send Con-
gress a special message on foreig
aid this week, underelining hi
argumjents in favor of the bi
utual security investment.
James C. Hagerty, the Presi-
dent's press secretary, told news-
men President Eisenhower is satis-
fied with the public reaction t
his speech on the $71,800,000,00(
spending budget 1 a s t Tuesda
But Hagerty declined to say ho
many messages the White House
received or to give the percentage
of those people agreeing witl
President Eisenhower's views.
In last week's speech the Presi-
dent said no great reductions ir
the budget are possible unless Con-
gress eliminates or curtails exist-
ing federal programs.
He said it would be "a needless
gamble" to cut into defense fund
at this stage of world relations.
But in Congress members of both
parties still seem determined tc
slice big chunks off the spending
x programs for the fiscal year be-
ginning July 1.
The suggested reductions range
from three to six billion dollars.
In an effort to make his foreign
aid program more acceptable to

duced his appropriation requests

High Court
Gives Aliens
preme Court held yesterday that
the Justice Department lacks au-
thority to ban Communist activity
by an alien who has been under
a deportation order for six months.
It affirmed a decision of a spe-
cial three-judge United States
District Court in the case of Mrs.
Antonia Sentner of St. Louis.
Justices Harold H. Burton and
Thomas C. Clark, who dissented,
said the action makes ineffective
clauses of the McCarthy-Walter
Immigration Act of 1952 which
"are vital to effectuation of the
purpose of Congress in controlling
subversives whose order of depor-
tation has been forestalled by
technical difficulties."
Justices Burton and Clark said
the "summary affirmance of this
appeal, without argument," en-
larges a recent holding in a similar
-immigration case.
That decision limited supervi-
sion of aliens who have been un-
der deportation orders for six
months to questions "reasonably
calculated" to keep the attorney
general advised regarding their
continued availablity for deporta-

OMichigan and -Western Michigan
Colleges receive the remaining
$600,000 increase.
Sen. Frank Badle (R-St: Clair)
of the Appropriation Committee
said that the Senate would increase
its original University proposal of
29 million dollars if the bill should
come to a legislative conference.
The House also tenporarily re-
jected 44 to 38 a committee
amendment to delete the Senate
proposal to appropriate $2,780,000
to MSU and $3,559,000 to the Uni-
versity which would be used in lieu
of student fees pledged for retiring
revenue bonds for capital outlay.
Under the Senate amendment,
up to 40 per cent of student fees
could be pledged to finance bonds.
If the Senate proposal passes it
will mean that University tuition
fees may have to be raised more
than 25 per cent to pay for capital
outlay. The amendment will be
voted on today. Rep. Arnell Eng-
strom (R-Traverse City) said now
it appeared dubious whether the
House would be able to get enough
votes to finally delete the amend-
ment. -
"The state does not need to
finance construction t h r o u g h
bonds and have the University pay
them through fees," Rep. Eng-
strom declared.
Rep. Ralph Young (R-East Lan-.
sing) said the amendment would
benefit Michigan State because it
would enable it ,to immediately
acquire needed classrooms and
new buildings and at the same
time eliminate the three and a half
to 10 per cent interest rates.
Mollet Faces
PARIS (A')-Premier Guy Mollet
faces a showdown today in the
national assembly on his demand
that Frenchmen ante up more
taxes to pay the cost of fighting
rebellion in Algeria.
Political sources said yesterday
Mollet has a fair chance to win a
vote of confidence-the 34th time
he has confrontedparliament on
such a ballot in the 16 months he
has held office.
No other postwar premier has
held on that long.
Mollet's fate rests in the hands
of independent republicans led by
former premier Antoine Pinay and
Roger Duchet.
If they abstain, Molle' will
squeeze through.

AA City Counci Approves
Next Fiscal Year Budget-
City Council last night approved the budget for Ann, Arbor for
the 1957-58 fiscal year.
The accepted budget totalled $2,457,992 in general fund expendi-
tures, as against a total of $2,220,372. However, due to the increased
equalized property valuation in Ann Arbor, the property tax has
been reduced from $18.05 per $1,000 of assessed valuation to $18.00.
Part of the increase in property valuation is due to the. annexa-
tions of East Ann Arbor and Pittsfield Village, which added a great
deal of property to the assessment s

Russia Asks
ith Mollet
Want 'Parliamentary
Disarmament' Tblks
MOSCOW () -Premier Nikolai
Bulganin has proposed direct ne-
gotiations between France and So-
viet Russia as a preliminary to-
ward new big power disarmament
talks, the Soviet government dis
closed yesterday.
The proposal was contained in a
4,000-word letter to French Pre-
mier Guy Mollet.
It seemed to reflect the current
Soviet desire for conferences in
general, regardless of where or
with whom, as part of the Krem-
lin's latest peace offensive.
Supplement Talks
The French-Soviet parley _en-
visioned by Bulganin apparently
would supplement the London
talks of the United Nations Dis-
armament subcommittee, which is
in recess until next Monday.
But Bulganin did not specifically
say so.
He suggested the French and the
Russians could meet either- in
Paris or Moscow.
The letter followed similar notes
to Britain, Denmark, Norway and
West Germany over the past two
Like the others, it warned of the
horrors of nuclear retaliation
risked by any country permitting
United States atomic bases on its
territory. %
Warns of Horrors
In it, Bulganin also proposed
working out of a Soviet-French
agreement on the exchange of in-
formation on atomic energy for
peaceful purposes.
He suggested additional confer-
ence to forge closer scientific,
technical and cultural relations
between the two countries.
Bulganin said the present inter-
national situation is critical.
It resembles, he said, the atmos-
phere that prevailed in Europe in
the years immediately preceding
World War II.
Currently the main differences
between France and Russia con-
cern such issues as disarmament,
the future of Germany and Euro-
pean security, and the Middle East

though these moves are slow in
taking shape.
Chairman John L. McClellan
(D-Ark) of the Senate committee
applauded Beck's ouster as "more
than justified" and said "all good
union people and good citizens ev-
erywhere will heartily approve."
Acted on Charges
The AFL-CIO Council acted on
the Senate committee's charges
that Beck had used more- than
$320,000 in union funds to advance
his personal fortunes and then re-
fused to tell about it, invoking the
Fifth Amendment more than 200
times, when questioned by Senate
Beck, claiming the AFL-CIO
proceedings against him were il-
legal, also refused yesterday to
answer queries on the Senate
charges put by his fellow AFL-
CIO union chieftains.
The Council acted swiftly and
unanimously against Beck after he
fled to the basement of the AFL-.
CIO headquarters and sped away
in an automobile to avoid facing
newsmen and photographers.
George Meany, AFL-CIO presi-
dent who had taken a stern stand
against Beck from the outset of
the Senate committee disclosures,
met with newsmen shortly there-
after. He said:
Guilty of Misconduct
"The Executive Council finds
that Vice President Beck has been
guilty of gross misuse of union
funds entrusted to his care.
"Whether he hasviolated any
laws, state or federal, dealing
with t h e f t,. misappropriation
embezzlement, is not for us to
consider or determine .
'There is not the faintest ques-
tion in our minds, however, that
he is completely guiltyofvviolat-
ing the basic trade union law that
union funds are a sacred trust,
belonging to the members and to
be protected and safeguarded for
the interests 'of the members."

rolls, according to Guy C. Larcom,
Jr., city administrator.
In addition, the state increased
the equalized property valuations
in the city from $141 million to
$149 million.
The vote on the budget was nine
in favor to one opposed. Council-
man Clan Crawford, Jr., cast the
lone dissenting vote, on the
grounds that the budget did not
provide enough funds for capital
But Councilman Frank Davis
said the reduction did not mean
the end of city improvements.
Mayor Richard W. Marshall of
Oak Park, Mich., presided at the
meeting, as the conclusion of Ex-
change of Mayors Day. During the
meeting he was presented with a
memento of his visit to Ann Arbor
by the countil.
Councilman Charles W. Joiner
proposed a motion to permit over-
night parking in University and
city lots on a monthly basis, in an
attempt to avoid hardship ,.,n stu-
dents as a result of the council's
ban on overnight parking. The
motion was referred to the coun-
cil's working committee.

Teamster Leader
Mishandles Funds
Senator Applauds Council Action,
Calls Ouster 'More Than Justified'
WASHINGTON (R)- - Fellow union chiefs yesterday found Dave
Beck guilty of "gross misuse of union funds entrusted to his care" and
virtually read him out of the labor movement.
The AFL-CIO Executive Council, organized labor's highest tri-
bunal, removed Beck permanently as an AFL-CIO vice president
and Council member on charges leveled by the Senate Rackets In-
vestigating Committee.
Action Was Heavy Blow
For the pudgy, 62-year-old Beck the unanimous action was a
heavy blow. His own Teamsters Union is reported taking steps to
oust him as president, even,---

Union Plans
To Shut Down
Missile Plant
TAMPA, Fla. (AP)-Pl a n s to
strike and possibly shut down the
Air Force Missile Center at Co-
coa were announced yesterday by
a Teamster Union official.
J. W. Hughes of Tampa said
members of the union will be
pulled off the job and a picket line
set up.
He said the principal reason for
the strike is to gain recognition
of the union as bargaining agent
for drivers, helpers and ware-
housemen on construction jobs at
its base.
He said two months of negotia-
tions with contractors at the base
have failed, although all other
unions there have contracts.
Hughes said he is hopeful 10
other unions at work at the cen-
ter, part of Patrick Air Force
Base, will quit work in sympathy.
