'Stands, Pat'
On Trade
WASHINGTON () - The sad-
ministration stood pat yesterday
on its proposal to extend the re-
ciprocal trade agreements pro-
gram despite warnings that if
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
does not compromise he may get
no extension at all.
However, the door still seemed
open for working out disagree-
ments that have stymied the
President's proposal in Congress.
The House Ways and Means
Committee, which abruptly halt-
ed hearings Tuesday, has given
President Eisenhower until Mon-
day to come up with a solution.
No Agreement
"We didn't come to any agree-
ment on anything," Secretary of
Commerce Sinclair Weeks told
reporters after an hour-long
meeting in the office of House
Speaker Sam Rayburn (D-Tex.)
"We're right where we were
when we started," Weeks said.
"We sent up a bill we believe in.
I told them we sent up a bill on
which the administration spent a
lot of time, and we still want the

Republican House leader Joseph
Martin (R-Mass.), who attended
the session, gave newsmen a
slightly more conciliatory report.
"The administration is standing
on its original bill," he said, "but

bill through. There might be a
compromise, but we don't know."

Rayburn said he didn't mean

foreign goods.

COPENHAGEN (M)-The'North Atlantic Alliance launched a peace
offensive of its own yesterday by telling the Soviet Union: Let us try
everything possible--not just summit talks-to eliminate war.
Rising above the Kremlin's roadblocks, the 15 NATO foreign
ministers invited the Soviets anew to join them in working out the
complex machinery for safe, controlled disarmament.
To Include NATO
The United States, Britain and France carried this idea a step
further by agreeing to take some of their smaller NATO partners to

He was taking a course to ac-

he was at Wayne, Maj. Johnston
said. The course normally lasts 45
days and Lieut. Tuttle had 15
days to complete.
"It was just a routine training

The plane, an RF-84F, de-
scribed by the Air Guard as a

into a newly plowed field at 3136
Eureaka Rd. at about 3:25 p.m.
The plane broke into two large
parts as it struck and smaller
pieces of metal and canopy were
scattered for yards, around the
main wreckage.
Lieut. Tuttle had about 25
hours to complete at the Univer-
sity to get his degree, Porter said.

Service Pay
WASHINGTON (M-A military
pay raise bill designed to make a
career in the armed services more
attractive was agreed on yesterday
by a Senate-House" - Conference
The first year cost of the pay
boosts, ranging from 6 per cent
to as high as 60 per cent, was
placed at $576,400,000. Virtually
all military personnel with two
years or more of service would
Thefinal draft of the legislation
-passed by the Senate and the
House in different forms-is in line
with President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower's recommendations for pay
raises to keep and attract trained
manpower in the armed forces.
Accept New Scales
The conferees accepted the new
pay scales provided in the Senate
bill. These generally were less gen-
erous than those in the House
bill, which would have cost 683
million dollars the first year.
The only major change in the
Senate bill would permit an in-
crease in retirement benefits- for
three and four-star generals al-
ready in retirement. The cost of
this was estimated at $400,000.
Returns To House
The measure now goes back to
the House and then to the Senate
for final action. If passed and then
signed by President Eisenhower
this month, the new pay scales
would go into effect June 1.
Sen. John Stennis (D-Miss.),
floor manager of the bill in the
Senate, told reporters he regarded
the final version as a strong bill.
He said it's up to the armed serv-
ices to make it work and do the

Award Won
By. Slawson
The John W. Reed Anthem
Award was presented yesterday to
Albert Wayne Slawson, Grad., for
composition of an anthem based
on the text of a prayer of St.
Francis of Asissi.
The $50 prize was created this
year by members of the First Bap-
tist Church in Ann Arbor in co-
operation with the School of Mu-
sic and in honor of Prof. John
Reed of the law school. The com-
position will be sung a capella in
the church on Sun., May 18.,
Set up to encourage the com-
posing of contemporary church
music and to draw the attention
of the chorus to it, the prize will
be given annually to an anthem
written by a student in any col-
lege of the University.
Prof. Reed has been choir di-
rector of the First Baptist Church
for the past eight years. He is
chairman of the Board in Control
of Student Publications.

Trial Plans
Get Approval
A test plan for determining
which weekday events merit a
45-minute extension of women's
closing hours was unanimously
approved by the League Senate
The group also approved on a
trial basis a proposal for extending
women's closing hours until mid-
night during examination periods.
Events now granted 45-minute
extensions are called University
sponsored events. Sarah Drasin,
'59, President'* of Women's Judi
ciary Council, explained that the
past system for determining which
events merited special hours was
unsatisfactory because the phrase
"University sponsored" was arbi-
trarily defined.
Extension Events
Traditional events automatically
granted extensions are 'Chamber
Music Festival and Stanley Quar-
tet concerts, Choral Union and
Extra Concert Series, Oratorical
Society lectures, May Festival
Concerts, Drama Series, and
speech department plays, Junior
Girls' Play, Soph Show, MUSKET
and Varsity Athletic events.
All organizations wishing to
sponsoran extended event next
semester must submit a petition
to Women's Judic in September.
A member from the organization
will then be interviewed by Wom-
en's Judic.
List Criteria
Extensions will be granted on
the basis of three criteria. The
event must hold interest for a
wide cross section of women. It
must start at least by 8 p.m. and
be sponsored by an official depart-
ment of the University or by an
organization registered with the
Organizations must petition for
an extension at the beginning of
the semester for which the event
is planned. Women's Judic retains
the right to grant or rescind ex-
tensions on a semester basis, Miss
Drasin said.
Send Out Lists
At the start of each semester a
list of events granted extensions
will be sent to house directors,
entered in the University Calen-
dar, and printed in. the Daily
Official Bulletin.
The proposal for midnight clos-
ing time during examination per-
iods was made because Judic
found that women used to save
their automatic late permissions
for examination time, Miss Drasin
She said the extension will be
made in view of the extra study
time required by exams.

Council To Publish
Course Evaluations
Student Government Council established a committee last night
to assemble student course evaluations and publish it in booklet form.
The committee is to consist of the SGC treasurer, Mort Wise, '60,
Public Relations Chairman Ron Bassey, '61, a representative of the
four groups of living units, and two general editors.
The editors will be Ron Gregg, '60, whose Education and Student
Welfare Committee drew up the proposal,and Michael Kraft, '59,
acting Daily Editorial Director. Debate on the proposed booklet was
limited to the method of putting,
