Committee Ready

To Accept

Military ReorganizationPlan

Armed Services Committee seemed
resolved yesterday to honor a good
portion of President Dwight D.
Eisenhower's request for more cen-
tralized command arrangements
over multiservice fighting teams.
But the committee, whose deci-
sions the House rarely overturns,
appeared as suspicious as ever of
moves to centralize administration
-as distinct from military com-
mand-of the Army, Navy, Air
Force and Marines.
Any change that could be in-
terpreted, however remotely, as
increasing the chance that in
future the separate services might
be merged appeared doomed.
This was the committee's mood

after two weeks of hearings on
President Eisenhower's proposals
for sweeping defense reorganiza-
tion. The legislators' temper show-
ed in their questioning of defense
chiefs and week-end interviews.
Secretary of Defense Neil H.
McElroy has told the committee
there is authority now to stream-
line command of combined forces,
so that the defense secretary and
Joint Chief of Staff are the direct
superiors of the field commanders.
But he said such command,"to be
effective, needs a bigger Joint Staff
with an operational section.
The committee appeared inclined
to increase the staff, now limited
to 210, but still to impose a ceiling,

'U' Committee To Consider
High School Accreditation
The executive committee of the University's Bureau of School
Services will meet this week to consider accreditation of Holland Chris-
tian High School, according to Bureau Director Prof. Kent W. Leach
of the education school.
At present, University accreditation is on a "tentative basis,"
Prof. Leach said.
The Holland, Mich., school became the center of controversy last
May when it was dropped by the North Central Association of Schools
and Colleges, which acts as an accrediting agency. The NCA charged
- the school curriculum did not meet

House Group
To Consider
.'Welfare Bill
WASHINGTON (?)-Chairman
Graham A. Barden (D-N.C.) said
yesterday the House Labor Com-
mittee will consider as soon as
practical a Senate-passed bill for
federal regulation of employee
welfare and pension funds:
But he added he has not con-
sidered setting a date for resum-
ing hearings recessed last session,
"Much to my surprise, there has
been much less pressure in regard
to ,it than I had anticipated. I.
don't know what the sentiment of
the House might be in support of
Prospects Improved
While Barden's statement seem-
ed to improve somewhat the pro-
spects of committee action on the
welfare fund bill, it still left un-
answered the larger question of
house action on any sort of major
labor legislation this year.
Sen. Irving Ives (R-N.Y.), in a
transcribed interview said general
labor amendments unsuccessfully
offered to the welfare bill in the
Senate have no chance of House
acceptance either.
Checked with House
"I checked up with the House to
find out how they would accept
proposals like that, and I dis-
covered some time ago that the
House had no intention of passing
any labor legislation at this ses-
sion," Sen. Ives said.
It seemed "most questionable"
at the time, he added, that the
House would even .approve the
proposal for regulation' of pension
and welfare funds.
But since the welfare bill has
gone to the House, Sen. Ives said,
he finds the leaders are giving it
serious consideration, "and there
is a strong probability that they'll
pass the bill."
The measure requires that most
pension-welfare funds be register-
ed with the Labor Department and
full reports be filed on their opera-
In the House committee, how-
ever, a hassle was brewing that
conceivably could delay action in-
3 definitely.

T o Be Played
"The Sacred Service," by Bloch,
will be sung by Martial Singher
in the fifth concert of the Ann
Arbor May Festival at 2:30 p.m.
Sunday in Hill Aud.
Singher will also be solist for

the needs of all its students.
Program Academic
The school's program is ,almost
exclusively academic, with no
courses in industrial arts or home
economics. Its only "vocational"
courses are shorthand and typing.
Prof. Lester W. Anderson of the
education school, chairman of the
NCA's Michigan division, explained
the Holland Christian curriculum
is directed primarily toward pre-
paring sudents for further educa-
About one-third of the school's
graduates go on to college.
Prof. Anderson said the NCA
has been trying for about five
years to convince the school to
alter its curriculum.
NCA Asks Change
The NCA requires all schools to
"provide for the interests, needs
and abilities of all pupils as well
as for the requirements of the
community and the public sup-
porting the school."
The University uses similar cri-
teria for accreditation.
Prof. Leach has suggested Hol-
land Christian might be accredited
if they were to establish a program
permitting students to take voca-
tional courses at Holland High
Representatives of the Univer-
sity 'visited Holland Christian
earlier this year to make a study
of the curriculum. University offi-
cials have also met with the school
superintendent and the Board of
Trustees to discuss the school pro-
Pleven Quits,
In Continuing
French Crisis
PARIS P) -- The 18-day-old
French political crisis drifted into
utter confusion yesterday.
Rene Pleven insisted on quitting
as premier-designate, while Presi-
dent Rene Coty still held some
hope of making him continue his
efforts to form a government.
Pleven met for nearly two hours
with Coty before he announced his
decision. He first tried to give up
the job shortly after midnight
after the Socialists refused to join
his Cabinet. The President refused
to release him.
Pleven walked out of Elysee
Palace and told reporters: "I have
confirmed to the President of the
Republic that I want to be freed
from my mission."
Coty apparently believed Pleven'
was the only man who could form
a government the Socialists would
support although they would not
take part in it. The Socialists have
said they will give Pleven their
votes but not their men.
Without their participation in
his Cabinet, however, Pleven could
not formh the broad-based govern-
ment of austerity and authority
he has said he wants.

perhaps of 400. This was the figure
McElroy tentatively estimated
might be needed.
-Gen. 'T'homas D. White, Air
Force chief of staff, said it prob-
ably should be larger.
Although there were more doubts
expressed on this score than on
the size of the staff, the committee
also appeared ready to go along
with President Eisenhower's re-
commendations to let the chair-
man of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
be the direct boss of the Joint
He also seemed likely to get the
right to Vote-described as a pure-
ly honorary concession, since the
Joint Chiefs do not in practice
take votes.
The committee, whose staff has
begun drafting language for a pos-
sible substitute to President Eisen-
hower's bill, also seems inclined to
authorize appointment of a direc-
tor of defense research and engi-
neering, with rank approximating
that of a service secretary.
AC Chief
Says Bombs
Not 'Dirtier'
WASHINGTON () - Chairman
Lewis L. Strauss of the Atomic
Energy Commission denied yes-
terday that something is inserted
in United States nuclear bombs to
make them "dirtier."
Strauss also challenged a state-
ment by Sen. Clinton P. Anderson
(D-N.M.) that such bombs have
been pulled out of the nation's
stockpile to increase their radio-
active fallout.
"The facts are that atomic
bombs are only taken from stock-
pile for purposes of routine in-
spection or for modification or
improvement," Strauss said in a
letter to Chairman Carl T. Dur-
ham (D-N.C.) of the Senate-House
Atomic Energy Committee.
Letter Not Received
Sen. Anderson said in a state-
ment that as far as he knew
Strauss' letter had not yet been
received by the committee, and
"hence I cannot examine it to
comment properly on it, but I
shall see it in time and then com-
ment fully."
But he said the letter "could be
the device by which we could pry
open some secret doors that should
be opened."
Surely, the senator added,
Strauss "would not be so lacking
in honor as to issue such a blast
at me, and then keep classified 'the
documents by which I can dis-
prove it."
Say Charges Hurt U. S.
Strauss said charges made by
Sen. Anderson in a television inter-
view last Sunday "bear heavily
upon me personally as a servant
of the government, but more im-
portantly they bear upon the sin-
cerity of United States policy."
In that broadcast, Sen. Ander-
son, a senior member of the Sen-
ate-House Atomic Energy Com-
mittee, said "I believe our State
Department does want cleaner
bombs, but I believe the military
is steadily stockpiling dirtier
bombs. They have pulled bombs
out of the stockpile and inserted
something that makes them dirt-

Pole Treaty
Asks Scientific Study
On Neutral Continent
WASHINGTON (') - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower called on
the Soviet Union and 10 other
countries yesterday to join in a
pact to neutralize the vast frozen
continent of Antarctica and dedi-
cate it to peaceful scientific re-
A major aim of the proposed
treaty would be to lock territorial
claims in Antarctica where they
now stand and thus prevent bitter
international disputes from aris-
Politically the region, where
Soviet and American scientists
have cooperated in recent months,
would be insulated from the So-
viet-Western conflict raging in
most other parts of the world.
To Exchange Ideas
President Eisenhower's proposal,
announced at the White House, is
expected to result in a 12-nation
conference after an informal ex-
change of ideas among the nations
In addition to the United States
and the Soviet Union, they are
Argentina, Australia, Belgium,
Chile, France, Japan, New Zea-
land, Norway, South Africa, and
The presentation of the pro-
posal to the Soviet government was
handled differently from the pre-
sentation to other governments.
In the case of 10 countries the
note was delivered by United
States ambassadors in their capi-
Handed to Menshikov
The message to Moscow was
handed to Soviet Ambassador Mik-
hail Menshikov in Washington by
Deputy Undersecretary of State
Robert Murphy Friday.
The note suggested continuance
beyond this year of the interna-
tional scientific cooperation in
connection with the International
Geophysical Year, which ends Dec.
It puggested conclusion of a
treaty at the proposed 12-nation
conference which would insure
that Antarctica be devoted to
peaceful purposes only, and that it
be open to scientific investigation
by citizens and organizations of
all countries.
Student Beaten
In Dearborn
Charles Worsley, '59E, was
severely beaten by three men early
yesterday morning in Dearborn
Tovwnship as he was pulled from
his parked car.
Worsley is now being treated in
Wayne County General Hospital
for glass particles in his right eye
and facial cuts inflicted by broken
beer bottles. Sally Miller of Dear-
born Township, who was with
Worsley, was treated for bruises
and released.
The attackers, escaped but
Wayne County deputy sheriffs

The beating took place three
doors from Miss Miller's home.
The victims told the police the
assailants were unknown to them
and the beating was unprovoked.
One of the suspects arrested,
Jordan M. Bell, Jr., is on parole
from Jackson prison. Police are
still searching for the third youth.


China of Aiding Rebels
JAKARTA, Indonesia (P) -Indonesia softened somewhat toward
the United States yesterday but threatened to go to the United Nations
with complaints that Nationalist China is taking a hand with the
Indonesian rebels.
Foreign Minister Subandrio attacked the government of Chiang
Kai-shek on Formosa after a meeting with United States Ambassador
Howard P. Jones. He said he had given Jones proof that the United
States and Chinese Nationalists are helping the rebels in their war
against the government. Bothj

in Twice
Over Indiana
Michigan powered its way into
a share of the Big Ten lead yes-
terday at Ferry Field when it
spilled Indiana twice, 7-6 in 11
innings, and 8-1.
The double win gives the Wol-
verines a 4-2 record in the Con-
ference and deadlocks them with
Michigan State for temporary
supremacy. Both teams had been
mired in fifth place before yes-
terday's action in which Indiana
and Purdue both toppled.
The first contest was a see-saw
affair that saw the lead change
several times before Michigan
finally came away with the win
on a passed ball in the eleventh.
Brown Gets Single
Dave Brown started the inning
with a single. Reliefer Dean Fink-
beiner, who got credit for the vic-
tory, attempted to sacrifice. How-
ever, opposing hurler Bill Smith,
trying for a double play, slipped
just as he released -the ball, and
it went flying into centerfield, both
runners advancing another base.
Ernie Myers proceeded to get
plunked with one of Smith's pitch-
es, loading the bases. This set the
stage for the wild throw that went
40 feet behind the plate, allowing
Brown to score the winning run
Hits Fall Freely
Hits fell all over the field as.
freely as had the rain just a few
hours before gametime. Michigan
belted out 16 of them, 12 coming
in the first four innings off start-
ing Hoosier pitcher Larry Atkin-
Don Foreman and Bob Law-
rence stood' out for Indiana in
defeat. Each collected four hits in
six attempts, with Lawrence's total
including a home run.
Bob Sealby, who greets right-
handers with outstretched arms,
got ,he big blow for Michigan with
a triple in the fourth, driving in
two runs.

Jones and Subandrio said their
talks were fruitful and valuable.
Subandrio concentrated on Na-
tionalist China. He said that if
the Formosa government "does not
take immediate steps to prevent
its nationals from interfering in
Indonesia's internal rebellion, we
will have no other alternative but
to take the case to the United
"Of course, taking the issue to
the United Nations is not the only
step we might take. That is only
one of the steps we will be forced
to take if this dirty business con-
tinues. If this intervention goes
on unchecked, it means war in our
The meeting between Subandrio
and Jones followed a speech at
Bandung by President Sukarno
Friday night. For the first time,
Sukarno took up the charges of
United States and Chinese Nation-
alist intervention in the Indonesian
The Indonesians 'charged Wed-
nesday that United States "soldiers
of fortune" and Chinese National-
ists are flying missions for the
rebels in their stepped-up air war
in northeast Indonesia.
A Nationalist Chinese Defense
Ministry spokesman denied the
Indonesian charges Thursday.
Positions Open
On Joint Judic
Petitions for Joint Judiciary
Council are due Friday at the
office of Assistant Dean of Men
John Bingley, according to Mike
Jacobson, '58; Joint Judic chair-
Five one-year terms on Joint

Kessel Says
Liquor rules
Now Ignored
There is no problem in enforc-
ing current drinking regulations
because no attempt at systematic
enforcement is made, David Kessel,
Grad., said yesterday.
Kessel, whose Student Govern-
ment Council committee drew up.
SGC's recommendation on chang-
ing drinking regulations, explained
he felt it would be easier to en-
force the rules systematically if
students 21 years old and older
were permitted to drink in private
If the drinking regulations coin-
cided with state law, Kessel said,
it could be enforced because
search-warrants would then be
possible in extreme cases.
At present University students
are classed with parolees as being
the only adults in Michigan whose
right to drink is interfered with,
Kessel said.
SGC President Maynard Gold-
man, '59, said he "went along"
with University security officer
Harold Swoverland's statement
that it would be no more difficult
to enforce the rules if changed.
The University would "just have
to be tougher," Goldman contin-
"The University is too lenient
now-that's the whole problem,"
he said.
Students coming to the Univer-
sity, Kessel asserted, would have
greater respect for all University
regulations if all of them were
uniformly enforced.

Dulles Has Doubts
After a week of increasing
Washington-Moscow tension, Sec-
retary of State John Foster Dulles
and other high officials appear to
doubt seriously that the Soviets
want a summit meeting now. Mos-
cow is believed unprepared to make
any important agreements with
the West on acceptable compro-
mise terms.
Dulles is due to talk with West-
emn European leaders in Copen-
hagen this weekend about steps
which this country could take by
itself or with Its allies.
He will talk, primarily with Britt'
ish Foreign Secretary Selwyn
Lloyd, about suspension of nuclear
weapons tests toward the.end of
this year without waiting for the
Soviet Union to acceptinterna-
tional inspection.
Agree on Prospect
President Dwight D. Eisenhower,
Dulles, and British Prime Minister
Harold L. Macmillan have agreed
the test suspension issue.offered
the greatest prospects of success
at a summit conference. The So
viet Union announced a month
ago that it was calling off tests,
and this put new pressures on
Britain and the PUnited States to"
review their own test policies.
Now that there is diminishing
prospect that a summit confer-
ence will be held, Dulles and other
United States officials who favor
halting the testing are thinking
primarily, it was learned yester-
day, in terms of independent ac-
tion. Dulles still has to win his
fight with Atomic Energy Com-
mission Chairman Lewis Strauss,
who is waging a public campaign
to continue testing on the ground
that it is essential to United States
At present, highly placed in-
formants say that the weight of
opinion in the administration is
against Strauss.
West Agrees
The Western powers agreed to
the Russian demand for separate
diplomatic negotiations on sum-
mit problems in notes delivered
in Moscow yesterday. They had
wanted to sit down with Gromyko
in a four-power group. In effect
they gave in under protest be-
cause, they said, they "desire to
move ahead with the work itself
.and in viewof the fact that
the Soviet government agrees that
the ambassadors will discuss sub-
stantive issues."
It was not certain that the sepa-
rate talks on the terms stated by
the West would be acceptable to
the Soviets.
