" As Election Nears
BOGOTA, Colombia (P) - A
presidential candidate and four
members of Colombia's ruling five-
man military junta were kidnaped
h. yesterday in a vain effort to seize
the government.
The bold move, led by an army
colonel, began at 4 a.m. Seven

Rear 'Adm. Ruben Piedrahita,
the fifth member of the junta,

He rushed to the presidential pal-

Lleras escaped in the confusion
that resulted when his captors ran
into a loyal army patrol near the
presidential palace.
Peidrahita sent an ultimatum
to Forero, telling him to release
the junta members immediately.

Kills Student
Lloyd Weiler, a student at
Michigan State University, died
early' yesterday morning after a
practice session i for the 1958
Pushmobile Junior 500 race, ac-
cording to the Lansing State
Weiler had started the practice
session at 12:30 a.m. yesterday
ith four of his Delta Tau Delta
fraternity brothers, according to
East Lansing police, and the ses-
sion continued until 1:50 a.m.
when the five students'decided to
sit down and rest, the State Jour-
nal said.
At this time, the police report
stated, Weiler began to feel dizzy
and lapsed into unconsciousness,
the State Journal reported. His
brothers then carried him across
the street into the Sigma Chi fra-
ternity house, when the East Lan-
sing police and fire department
inhalator squad were called in.
Owen Hospital Called
According to the State Journal,
police said that Owen Memorial
Hospital was then called, and the
nurse on duty said that it was "ir-

regular" to call a doctor at that
time. Owen Memorial Hospital
fills the same function as Univer-
sity Hospital on this campus.
The nurse suggested the State

The East Lansing police then
contacted another doctor through

tor of the Owen Memorial Hospi-

he had a rheumatic heart. He was

Sonne Asks Tax Cut,
Expenditure Increase
WASHINGTON (R)-Calling for bold action to meet the recession,
Christian Sonne, the head of the National Planning Association,
yesterday urged a four-billion-dollar increase in government spending
and a tax reduction of seven to eight billion dollars.
"In this situation I think it is more prudent to err on the side
of acing too boldly than too timidly," Sonne said.
He advanced his proposals at a hearing of the House Banking
Committee, which is considering legislation to relieve unemployment.
Senate Republican Leader William Knowland of California predicted

Miitary Plan.
Thomas D. White, Air Force chief
of staff, went down the line for
President Dwight D. Eisenhower's

'the Senate will pass an adminis-
tration-backed bill td extend the
duration of unemployment relief
payments by 50 per cent. The
legislation sailed through the
House Thursday after a broader-
scaled Democratic measure was
voted down.
Sen. Knowland, after a White
House conference with President
Dwight D. Eisenhower, told news-
men the President was very
pleased by the House action.
StartMay 12
The Senate Finance Committee
is scheduled to start hearings on
the legislation May 12.
Sonne told the House committee
tat NPA's program of tax reduc-
tion and government spending may
be premature, but he said greater
harm may result from action
which may turn out to be inade-
iuate, and he added: "Further
action during this session of Con-
gress cannot long be delayed."
Calls Move 'Defeatist'
It may be true that the problems
of inflation have not yet been mas-
tered, he said, but: "It would,
however, be defeatist if because of
our fear that we will be unable to
master the problems of possible
future 'price rise, we decide to run
the risk of prolonging mass unem-
ployment and leaving productive
capacity unutilized."
"Taking this risk is unjustified
in any event," he said.

He said separate ground, sea,

Unlike some other military lead-

endorsement to the reorganization
bill at hearings before the House
Armed Services Committee.
No Suggestions ,
Asked whether he had any sug-
gestions on a substitute bill, the.
Air Force leader said no.
"I completely agree with the
President's concept that separate
ground, sea, and air warfare are
gone forever and that peacetime
preparation and organization must
conform to this fact," White told
the congressmen.
"It is essential that our combat
forces be organized into . .. uni-

Hears Criticism
Critical comments from some
members of the House committee
punctuated the hearing.

President Eisenhower in 1953 was
certain that secretaries of the

Dulles Says Russia
Keeps Fears Alive
DURHAM, N.H. () - Secre-
tary of State John Foster Dulles
said last night Russia's veto of
President Dwight D. Eisenhower's
arctic inspection plan is frighten-
ing and tragic.
Dulles departed from the pre-
pared text of a foreign policy
speech to deplore the Soviet Un-
ion's veto of the plan in the
United Nations Security Council.
Soviet Responsibility
' "At the choice of the Soviet
Union," Dulles said, "the fears
and risk continue. They continue
for one reason alone, and that is
because the Soviet Union rejects
international inspection against
surprise attack.
"The result is tragic. It means
that at the will and choice of the
Soviet Union we shall have to go
on living on the edge of an awful
abyss from which we could so
viet Union did not insist upon re-
readily be rescued if only the So-
taining for itself the possibility of
massive surprise attack."
Set Five Goals
He said rulers in the Kremlin
have set five main goals in their
drive for world domination.
In a far-ranging foreign policy
speech, Dulles urged free peoples
everywhere to make "a sustained
sacrificial effort" to keep Moscow
1) Permanent domination of
Eastern European nations.
2) Continuing the partition of
3) Dismantling A me r i c a n-
backed defense alliances such as
the 15-nation Atlantic Pact.
4) Achieving diplomatic recog-
nition of Red China by the United
States or its admittance into the
United Nations, while winning ac-
ceptance of Peiping's claim to
5) Wiping out Western trade
controls that limit strategic war

Bingley Sees
Flaw in Rule
On Drinking
Student Government Council
doesn't seem to have "considered
fully" the problem of enforcement
in recommending a change in
drinking regulations, A s s is t a n t
Dean of Men John Bingley said
SGC voted unanimously to rec-
ommend that drinking be per-
mitted in private rooms, apart-
ments and homes of students 21
years old and older. A second vote
selected Joint Judiciary Council
as the group to whom to make
the recommendation.
University Security Officer
Harold Swoverland said it is
"easy" to enforce drinking regula-
tions now and it wouldn't neces-
sarily- be any harder to enforce
them if the recommended change
took place.
Dean Bingley pointed out that
in 1951 Joint Judic decided on a
similar plan, varying only on
minor points. At the time the
Administration felt the problem
of enforcing such a rule chahge
made it impracticable, he indi-
SGC was right in directing the
recommendation to Joint Judic
rather than to the Faculty Com-
mittee on Student Conduct, Dean
Bingley said,

of people standing around
looking at the sign.

Michigan Errors Allow
OSU Nine o , 8-5
Starting pitcher John Herrnstein was victimized by shoddy sup-
port yesterday, resulting in Michigan's 8-5 loss to Ohio Staten at
Ferry Field.
The Wolverines host Indiana this afternoon in a twin bill, giving
them two chances to improve on their 2-2 Conference record and
fifth-place standing in the league.
Five Runs Unearned
Herrnstein's 11 strikeouts, the most he's thrown in a college game,
went for naught when three errors in strategic places brought in
five unearned runs for the Buck-*
Michigan started in the hole
from the very beginning when the
opposition's 28 - yr.t old captain,
Vern Barkstall, belted a two-run
home run in the first inning.
Those two, plus one more in the
second, were the only counters for
which Herrnstein can be given
full blame
Tide Turns in Eighth
The turning point came in the
eighth, after Michigan had battled}
to a 5-4 deficit. With a runner on>
first and one out, Gary Haverkamp
hit a grounder to Dave. Brown that

However, shortstop Ernie Myers

Dave Holland kept the inning .. hits three singles

Disregards Assurances
The Soviet Union disregarded
also assurances from Secretary of

setting up of an inspection system
might make unnecessary polar

tegic Air Force. The Soviet Union
charged that the planes carrying
nuclear weapons in flights toward
its borders could accidently trigger

it proved to the entire world that
Moscow "is more interested in in-
creasing tension and anxiety than
in finding ways and means to pre-
vent surprise attack."
