Eisenhower, McElroy Not Certain
On Date for First Lunar Shooting
WASHINGTON P)-The United States is going to send rocket
scouts to take a close look at the moon.
Orders for the "lunar probes" by unmanned space vehicles were
issued yesterday by President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Secretary
of Defense Neil McElroy.
Neither the White House nor Defense Department would speculate
on when the first moon shoot would be made. Some important parts
of the equipment needed already exist.

would have seemed a fantastic

Prof. Kenneth Boulding of the
economics department said last
The two countries have strong
common interests in avoiding war,
not letting other countries have
the H-bomb and not getting in-
volved in the: disputes of smaller
countries, Prof. Boulding said.
Mistake Possible
Avoiding war can only mean
disarmament, his - remarks indi-
cated, because of the increasingly
probable chance that some mili-
tary man will make a mistake
that will cause atomic war.
He said that the United States
or Russia could neither afford to
let their allies have H-bombs be-
cause H-bombs are "the great
equalizer" or afford to get involved
in the disputes of small countries
because of the chance of atomic
Russians 'Use' Talks
It has become evident, he said,
that the Russians want to use any

project, followed by one day the
President's publication ofirmoffi-
cial "Introduction to Outer Space."
This was an outline by his
science advisory' committee of the-
reasons for space exploration and
its possibilities and problems.
In this first long step, the gov-
ernment authorized the Air Force
and Army to proceed with pro-
grams for launching four and per-

Says U.S.
In Peril'
WASHINGTON (I?) - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower said last
night America faces ""deadly per-
il" from communism abroad and
possible loss of jobs at home un-
less Congress extends the admin-
istration's foreign trade program.
The President sounded those
cautionary notes in a speech pre-
pared for a dinner to rally bi-
partisan support for the program.
President Eisenhower, w h o s e
talk was carried nationwide on
television and radio, hammered
hard at both the international
and domestic aspects of foreign
He has asked Congress for a
five-year extension of the Recip-
rocal Trade Act and for authority
to cut tariffs gradually up to 25
per cent under present levels.
Economic Defense Needed
"We should make everyone
aware," the President said, "of the
deadly peril impending if -
through blindness - America and
the free world are robbed of ade-
quate economic defense against
As for the picture at home in
'relation to trade, President Eisen-
hower said: "World trade makes
jobs for at least four and one-half
million American workers.
At a time of slack in the econo-
my like the present, these jobs
should not be placed in jeopardy
by-crippling our trade program."
The President's speech climaxed
a daylong rally at which Demo-
cratic as well as Republican Ad-
minisfration leaders plugged for
enactment of the trade program.
Dulles Speaks
Secretary of State John Foster
Dulles, who also addressed the ral-
ly attended by more than a thous-
and, said Congress would "en-
danger our republic" if it failed
to pass President Eisenhower's
foreign trade bill.

Trade Need Cited
"The issue before the Congress
and the American people in this
spring of 1958," President Eisen-
hower said, "is a momentous one:

of the American Association of
University Professors charges Pres-

Prepared by an investigating
committee of the association, the
report criticized dismissal of Prof.
Mark Nickerson, formerly of the
pharmacology department, and H.

mathematics department, in 1954.

Dismissal of both men came
after they refused to answer ques-

The chairman of the advisory
committee, to President Hatcher.
Prof. Russell Smith of the law
school, called the AAUP criticism
"We went to #lengths to provide
a fair trial. The fact that Presi-
dent HMatcher wouldn't take any
action until our group had advised
him was certainly an attempt to
be fair," he added.
Prof. David ennison, physics
department chairman and another
member of the committee, con-
sidered the AAUP action "unfor-
tunate for the University," sug-
gesting that it "could lead to ac-
tion of censure" at the annual
meeting of AAUP in April.
Gave Best Attention
"At the time, the members of
the committee gave the very best
of attention to all angles of the
case they could discover.
Prof. Amos Hawley, chairman of
the sociology department, called
attention to the fact that AAUP
took four years to criticize the
The AAUP report condemns the
University administration for "pro-
cedural inadequaciesgfor basing
the dismissals on grounds iM-

and for "refusal to grant 'sever-

AAUP investigators also con-
demned President Hatcher for "ar-
bitrarily suspending the two men
as soon as their refusal totestify
became known."
Failed To State Grounds
The report charged the adminis-
tration failed to state "withrea-

for dismissal.
Other deficiencies listed were
failure to permit the accused to
appear when witnesses testified
before a University Senate faculty
committee that heard the cases

Move Shows Historic Pattern-alis

Nikita Khrushchev's assump-
tion of direct government control
reflects the Soviet pattern of one
man -dictatorship which dates
back to the Czars, Prof. William
Ballis of the political science de-
partment said last night.
"The pattern is continuing even
though Khrushchev condemned
Stalin for being a dictator."
However, the new prime min-
ister attempts to appear as a
member of the "collective lead-
ership" and does not refer to him-
self as the "vozhd," or leader. He
reigns through the illusion of
being the "primus inter pares,"
first among equals, Prof. Ballis
Behind Red Name Law
The specialist in Soviet politics
said Khrushchev was behind pas-
sage of a law last summer which
prohibited the naming of cities or
prizes after living communist
leaders. "It will be interesting to
see if the law wil be changed and
whether there will be a glorifica-
tion of Khrushchev."
Prof. Ballis called the former
Ukrainian miner "bold and ruth-
less" and said "the wearing of two
hats is a further indication of
Khrushchev's personal suprema-
cy over the party and state."
Attempt to Gain Prestige
He speculated that the assump-
tion of official control was an at-
tempt to get more prestige abroad,
enabling him to negotiat formally
with other heads of state. Khrush-
chev's election yesterday to the
post of prime minister gave him
his first formal office in the So-
viet ,government.
The replacement of Marshal
Bulganin was the third major
shift in Soviet government lead-
ership since Stalin died five years
ago, Prof. Ballis said this also
shows that the Soviet Union oper-
ates according to what ih called
a "permanent revolution" in
which there has to be continual
changes in the top government
leadership to keep the system go-
It is uncertain how long Khrush-
chev will remain in power but he
has disposed of all his immediate-
ly potential rivals, Ballis pointed

Religion in Modern World
Summer Session tneme
"Religion in Contemporary Society" has been chosen as the
summer session theme for this year, Program Director Prof. George
Peek of the political science department said yesterday.
The program is not designed as an explication of the religious
faiths but is mainly interested in the impact of religion on the
modern world, Prof. Peek said.
Plays, lectures, and displays are scheduled for the summer series.
"We hope to cover as many areas of intellectual activity as possible,"
Prof. Peek added. "The Potting Shed" by Graham Green and "The
Flowering Peach" by Clifford Odet
are scheduled to be presented by Ff

'M'OS U Lead Teams
A fter First Day's Action
Michigan, the NCAA defending swim champion, gained 10 points
last night in the opening round of intercollegiate competition at the
Varsity Exhibition Pool to tie Ohio State for the lead position among
the 59 teams entered.
MSU with 7, Indiana 5, California Polytechnic 4, Illinois and
Southern Methodist 3, and Utah 2, were the' only other point getters.
Only two of the sixteen events, the 1500-meter freestyle and the
one-meter diving, scheduled for the weekend tournament were
programmed last night. Bill Steuart, MSU's powerfully built 5'11"
sophomore, accounted for all six'


of State's points as he placed
first in the 1,500-meter freestyle.
The South African Olympic star
