In Aid Plan
Speech- Puts Focus
On High Peace Cost
WASHINGTON () - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower told tile
American public yesterday reduc-
tion of his $3,865,000,000 foreign
aid program would be "a reckless
gamble" which could lead to loss
of peace and freedom.
In a speech prepared for deli-
very by nationwide televisioi and
radio, President Eisenhower de-
clared anew that "the cost of
peace is high" in this atomic age.
"Yet the price of war is higher
and is paid in different coin-with
the lives of our youth and the
devastation of our cities," Presi-
dent Eisenhower said.
Obviously hitting at members
of Congress who want to cut the
foreign aid program, the President
then went on to say:
"The road to this disaster could
easily be paved with the good in-
tentions of those blindly striving
to save the money that must be
spent as the price of peace."
President Eisenhovwer, speaking
from his White House office, add-
ed that "to try to save money at
the risk of such damage" to the
mutual security program "is nei-
ther conservative nor construc-
tive." Then he declared:
"It is reckless. It could mean
the loss of peace. It could mean
the loss of freedom. It could mean
the loss of both.
"I know that you would not
wish your government to take
such a reckless gamble."
Eisenhower's TV-radio talk was
his second appeal of the day in
behalf of his foreign aid program,
already scaled down from the ad-
ministration's original figure of
The first was in a special mes-
sage to Congress norm ally re-
questing $3,865,000,000 for the fis-
cal year starting July 1.
But the odds appeared against
the President's getting that much.

request usually is trimmed at the
capitol, and the lawmakers are in

longtime foe of Beck within the
union, was chosen to succeed Beck

Selecting English to Beck's AFL-

House Kills Raise

Salade's Attempts To Boost 'U's
State Appropriation Die on Floor
By MICHAEL KRAFT
Special to The Daily
LANSING - Attempts to increase appropriations for higher edu-
cation were voted down by the House yesterday.
Economy-minded legislators adhered firmly to their "hold the
line" policy against additional state spending and defeated attempts
to amend the House Appropriations Bill.
While passing the appropriations bill, members of the House
also refused to delete the provision permitting universities to pledge
40 per cent of student fees toward new construction.
An amendment by Rep. George Sallade (R-Ann Arbor)

Laurium), to add a total of $4,-

Sallade said, "The bonding pro-

This was seven per cent less
than the $36,128,000,000 President
Eisenhower asked, but much of the
cut was in bookkeeping and similar
operations, rather than cash.
The 50-man committee, 30 Dem-
ocrats and 20 Republicans, passed
the bill along to the House, saying
that the military threat to the
West seems "somewhat abated"
even though Russia is "closing the

President Eisenhower, in his
speech "to the people" a week ago,

The suspension bugaboo has
once again hit the Miehigan ath-
Al Sigman, regular rightfielder
on the Michigan baseball team,
has been suspended by the Big Ten
for signing a professional baseball
contract seven wears ago.
The action came late Monday
night when Big Ten Commissioner
Kenneth L. (Tug) Wilson notified
Michigan officials that word had
been received from the office of
Gearge Trautman, president of the
National Associotiov of Profes-
00onal Baseball Leagues that Sig-
man hlad signed with the Wiscon-
si l Rapids team of the now de-
funct Class D Wisconsin State
League on April 15, 1950.
Sigman drew his release from
this contract three days later,
Prof. Marcus Plant, Michigan's
faculty representative to the Big
Ten, said that upon receipt of this
information, Sigman was with-
drawn from competition.
Plant said that the games in
which Sigman has played would
not be affected by the ruling.
Coach Ray Fisher had cleared
Sigman through Trautman's office
.en another contract signed by the
e cte in. 1951. In this case it was
-roved that his father's name had
been forged on the document and
Sigman was declared a free agent,
regasing his an itiur standing.

A Civil Aeronautics Board rul-

Duane LaMoreaux, '58, Union Ad-
ministrative Vice-President, said
Eightyfreshmen were affected
by the rule, which declared that
persons not connected with the
University for six months prior to
registration for the trip are ineli-
The purpose of the rule, accord-
ing to LaMoreaux, was to keep
persons from using the University
as a means of cheap transporta-
tion to Europe.
However, lawyers from the
sponsoring airline and travel
agency were able to convince the
CAB that no such effort was being
made by the freshmen involved,
The trouble arose because of the
vagueness of CAB rules. The
freshman ruling, by CAB adminis-
trative personnel, was a clarifica-
tion of a rule which prohibited
use of the plan by persons not con-
nected with the University on a

One of these was an instructor

the graduate school. However, he
already has his Ph.D., according
to LaMoreaux, and so does not

State Chairman Outlines
Difficulties Facing GOP
By DAVID TARR
Money and organization - a shortage of both - have been mal-
adies of Michigan's Republican party since 1948 when state Demo-
crats started winning elections on a regular basis.
The situation hasn't changed much, Lawrence B. Lindemere,
GOP state chairman told the Young Republicans last night. But he
also said hard work by local groups can turn the party into a dy-
namic, vote-winning organization.

PARIS 0P) - Socialist Premier
Guy Mollet handed in his resigna-

dence vote in the National Assem-
President Rene Coty seized on
a technical point to delay accept-
ance. Coty said he will consult with
Assembly leaders and decide
whether to ask Mollet to stay on,
Coty's point was that Mollet's
opposition failed to muster an
absolute majority, currently 298
votes, as required under the con-
stitution to force a premier to

The president, preparing for a
state visit to Washington, faces
the bleak task of trying to replace
the Mollet regime that had proved
to be the most stable Fran'e has

jected his policies, including new
taxes and cuts in nonmilitary

paign to crush the Nationalist re-
bellion in Algeria.
Mollet had been in office 1
months, a postwar record.
The assembly ignored last-min-
ute warning that Mollet's down-
fall would be regarded as a disa-
vowal of Foreign Minister Chris-
tian Pineau, who now is in New
York debating the Suez Canal dis-

majority of 313 negative votes
is required to oust a government.

other result of Mollet's collapse
