J.S. Turns Down
Jew Summit Bid
Latest Soviet Conference Proposal
Considered Unacceptable by Dulles

Reveal College aculties

WASHINGTON (JP)-The United States yesterday rejected Russia's
dd for a summit conference on Soviet terms.
"As it stands, the position of the Soviet Union seems to be unac-
eptable," Secretary of State.John Foster Dulles declared.
The chief objection to the Soviet formula was that it failed to
ermit adequate advance preparation which might turn up possible
oints of United States-Soviet agreement.
Proposal 'Ambiguous'
Dulles labeled the Soviet formula as ambiguous because, he said;
he Russians say they want summit agreements but block diplomatic
explorations which might pave the

WASHINGTON (M)-A group of
Democratic and Republican sena-
tors introduced yesterday a con-
stitutional amendment that would
supplant the disability arrange-
ment between President Dwight D.
Eisenhower and Vice-President
Richard M. Nixon.
Sen. William Knowland. (R-
Calif.) said the proposal is "gen-
erally acceptable" to the Eisen-
hower administration.
President Eisenhower called for
an amendment two years ago after
he suffered the first of three seri-
ous illnesses-his 1955 heart at-
tack.
Fixes Procedures
The proposal amendment fixes
procedures under which the vice-
president would become acting
president should the chief execu-
tive become disabled. Its chief
sponsors were Sens. Estes Kefau-
ver (D-Tenn.), and Everett Dirk-
sen (R-I.)-
Sen. Knowland said he hopes
for early action by the Senate Ju-
diciary Committee on the plan.
Agrees with Rodgers
Sen. Kefauver told the Senate
he agrees with Attorney General
Rogers that the Constitution now
gives the vice-president sole re-
sponsibility for determining
whether a president is unable to
carry out his duties, if the presi-
dent himself does not make such
a finding.
This is the procedure to be fol-
lowed under the Eisenhower-Nixon
agreement made public Monday.

way for agreement.
"I don't know of any significant
matter where the presently known
positions give a reasonable like-
lihood of agreement," Dulles
argued.,
"It may ...' be possible through'
proper exploration to find some;
we want a summit meeting
tliat will really accomplish some-
thing.
Proposed Friday
"We do not want to be a party
to what would be a fraud, or a
hoax and which would be
merely a spectacle. Nor do we
want to . . expose differences
in an acrimonious way, which
would increase tension."
The Sgviet proposal was laid
down in notes last Friday to the
United States, Britain and France.
The Soviets called in essence for
a foreign ministers meeting in
April with a prior commitment to,
a summit conference in June.
Gold War End 'Fiction'
Dulles said -the, Russians are
proposing with unscrupulous pro-
paganda to "substitute a fiction
for reality .. . a fiction that the
cold war has come to an end."
The secretary said the United
States reply to the Soviet note
would express "a willingness to
proceed through any workable
channels to arrive at what would
be meaningful decisions."

A report urging an increase in

asking for a study of the possi-
bility of building a new center,
will be givento Student Govern-
ment Council at 7:30 p.m. today,
in the Council Room of the Stu-.

The report, prepared by a com-
mittee chaired by Jean Scruggs,
'58, points out the International
Center has a staff of 10 for 1,414
international students. "Only three
counselors are available.. . . The
counselors must carry other re-
sponsibilities due t¢ lack of per-
sonnel," the report says.
"In each service which the Cen-
ter provides, be it filing cards or
giving banquets, it is hindered by
the inadequate facilities."
The report recommends a fur-.
ther study of the center.

U.S. Meant
Incomes Don't Meet
Rising Cost of Living
By MICHAEL KRAFT
"Shamefully low" average salary'
figures for the nation's college
faculty members were reported in
Washington yesterday by the Fed-
eral Department of Health, Edu-
cation and Welfare.'
While the University's faculty
members are paid "quite a bit'
above average," they have lost
ground to the increasing cost of
living and higher tax levels, 'Uni-
versity fficials said.
The udy announced yesterday
of nearly 1,150 colleges and uni-
versities reveals salaries for faculty
members will average $6,120 this
year.
Average Here $7,960
University Vice - President and
Dean of Faculties Marvin L. Nie-
huss said the 1956-57 average here
is' 47,960.
However, according to a United
States Department of Labor re-
port, the cost of living has in-
creased 98 per cent since 1939.
The University has raised sal-
aries ,12 per cent since, that time1
but increased federal taxes. havej
caused the net disposable income
of faculty members to actually de-
cline two per cent since 1939, ac-
cording to University figures.
Percentage Increase Small
The 12 per cent increase is one
of . the smallest granted to any-
group of workers in the United
States.
Employees of the State of Mich-
igan have received increases aver-
aging 55 per cent since 1939. How-
ever,, a state senator said at the
begining of the present legisla-
tive session that pay hikes for civil
service employees were unlikely
and the same would thus be true"
for faculty members. The Univer-
sity is seeking a 10 per cent in-
crease for faculty members, which
would include merit increases and
an across the board wage hike.
At a Regents meeting held Feb-
ruary 16, 1957, Vice President Nie-
huss warned that other schools
are "raiding" the University's
teaching staff with offers of high-
er pay, department chirmanships
and deanships.
Odegaard Climaxes Departures
Faculty departures during the
past year were climaxed by the
announcement early last month
that Charles E. Odegaard, dean of
the literary college, will become
president of the University of
Washington in Seattle. Arthur
Brandon last spring resigned as
Director of University Relations to
become vice-president of New York
University.
Pointing to competition with in-
dustry for qualified personnel, Vice
President Niehuss yesterday said
that "compared with the income
potential in professions which re-
quire equal training and ability,
the college teaching profession is
definitely underpaid.
"In order to make the field more
attractive, it is essential that in-
come opportunities be improved,"
he said.

KOHLER:
Violence
In Strike
Reported
WASHINGTON (P)-Stories of
dynamitings, shotgun blasts and
acid throwings studded yesterday's
testimony in the Senate Rackets
Committee's investigation of the
45-month-old Kohler Co.strike.
Most of the witnesses who de-
picted themselves as targets of
violence were non-striking work-
ers at the Wisconsin bathroom fix-
tures firm. One striker complained
of being called "goon" and of
having his car showered with acid.
Moede Testifies
Gilbert Moede, a Kohler worker
since 1926; testified he didn't sup-
port the United Auto Workers on
its strike and,. after his country
place was damaged by acid, he quit
Kohler last summer in fear of
further reprisals.
Moede said he lives in a cot-
tage about 80 iles north of the
Kohler plant. He said while en-
tering the plant pickets threatened
that his cottage would be dam-
aged.
Acid Thrown
He said finally this happened,
that acid was thrown all 'over
family antiques at the country
place.
"I had to give up my job on
account of the strike activities,"
Moede said. "I just couldn't stand
it any more. That's not a way to
live."
He said he quit despite strong
feelings about a man's right to
work.
