Mobs Riot As Civil War
Follows Feud in Haiti
PORT AU PRINCE, Haiti (A') - Apparent civil war flared yester-
day from Haiti's bitter and tumultuous political feuding.
Mobs raged through the streets of Port au Prince, looting, burn-
ing and stoning buildings.
Small arms fire crackled throughout the capital as two rival
chiefs of staff battled for control of the army and Haiti. Coast

Special to The Daily
LANSING-A $30,250,000 oper-
ating budget and a $7,159,000
capital-outlay program for the
University were approved last
night by the legislature.
Final passage in the House came
after a heated partisan floor bat-
tle. The bill passed the Senate on
the first vote, 33-1.
The' operating budget was a
compromise between the $30,315,-
000 originally approved by the
House and the $29.1 million fav-
ored by the Senate.
House Opposition
Stiffest opposition to the bill
came from the House where two
legislative conferences were called
before final passage, 60-46.
The Rouse unanimously passed
the University's capital-outlay
program 100-0.
A oitter House fight came on a
$20,800,000 operating budget ap-
propriation for Michigan State
University. A 1;compromise gave
MSU $21,000,000 for operation and
$251,000 for capital outlay.

WASHINGTON (P) -President
Dwight D. Eisenhower settled an
argument in his official family
yesterday and directed Harold
Stassen to negotiate with Russia
for a disarmament treaty designed
to bring the atomic arms race to
an early end.

more money than it*deserved. If It
wants money it should raise stu-
dent tuitidn."
Carey Heads Opposition
Rep. Edward Carey of Detroit,
Democratic floor leader, spear-
headed his party's opposition to
both bills.
"MSU has expanded more rapid-
ly than the University in recent
years. It is not fair to" cut the
MSU budget by such a large
amount and not the University's,"
Carey said.
The conference committee's ap-
propriation bills reduced MSU's
operating budget by $1 million.
The committee also deleted the
Senate's amendment that would
have enabled the universities to
begin immediate construction by
financing bonds with up to 40 per
cent of student fees.
The University could have ob-
tained $13,331,000 and MSU $12,-
365,000 under the amendment.
University President Harlan
Hatcher said the dropping of the
bonding amendment "doesn't sur-
prise me. It has a great many in-
herent problems."
University officials indicated
they were prepared to go ahead
with the prop'osal if it was passed.
The Republicans opposed the
bonding amendment because it
was of no benefit to smaller
schools, would result in increased
tuition and would have given a
X21 million interest rate for 14

Pleven Sees
Long Crisis
In France,
PARIS (A') - Rene Pleven
plunged into the French political
whirlpool yesterday and sent out
word that a solution for thena-
tion's Cabinet crisis will be a tough
job and takes a long time.
This surprised no one.
The tall ex-prenier, leader of a
middle-road splinter group, set
up temporary headquarters in an
annex of, the Foreign Ministery to
begin a series of talks with leaders
of other parties and with promi-
nent officials.
Spokesmen for Pleven's own
party, the Socialist and Demo-
cratic Union of the Resistance,
UDSR, emphasized that Pleven
does not intend to form a Cabinet
They stressed that he is simply
acting as agent for President Rene
Coty, in sounding out political
opinion on who and what can put
a new Cabinet together.
This position could, however, be
only a maneuver to set the stage
for a "draft" of Pleven to succeed
