l1 Statement

" aircraft is approaching your area.
If it menaces your formation use
sidewinders-air-to-air missiles --
to prevent photography."
Although Brown declined to con-
firm or deny officially that such a
message was transmitted, many
officers and several civilians saw,
copies of it. The admiral de~eliped
to permit correspondents to trans-
mit the story over Navy communi-
cations, but said they could do so
by other means.
Commanders of the three car-
riers in the 90-ship fleet ordered
their jets ready for take off while.
Nevy delta wing Skyrays already
in the air sought out the plane.
Prepared To Fire First Shot
One carrier pilot remarkedhlater:
"I was prepared, to' fire the' first
shot in World War IIL''
The plane, a twin jet swing-wing
craft, turned away before reach-
ing the carrier formation and the
Skyrays already aloft failed to
make contact.
The plane was first spotted
Monday when it flew at high alti-
tude over the American :amphibi-
ous force massed off Turkey for
NATO exercises 30 miles south of.
Bulgaria. Navy officials said the
plane came from the direction of
Bessarabia, across the Black Sea.
and along the Romanian and Bul-
garian coasts.
Similar Appearances
It made similar mid-day ap-
pearances Tuesday and Wednes-
day, flying at higher than 35,000,
feet and at a speed of 600 m.p.h.,
The Fleet tracked it by radar andy
by its vapor trails but took no1
action the first three days.

tude, again around mid-day, and

Mobs, Faubus Flout Court, Claims Ike

NEWPORT, R. I. (N)-President
Dwight D. Eisenhower accused
Arkansas Gov. Orval E. Faubus in-
directly yesterday of encouraging
mobs of extremists to flout federal
court orqers on school integration.
The President at the same time
denied that his 'order sending fed-
eral troops into TAttle Rock bore
any resemblance to Hitlerian tac-
President Eisenhower expressed
his views in a telegram to Sen.
Richard B. Russell (D-Ga.), who
had protested to the President
against what he called high-hand-
ed and illegal methods being em-
ployed by the federal forces in
Little Rock.
Didn't Mention Faubus
The telegram did not mention
Faubus by name, but in an ob-
vious reference to the Arkansas
chief executive the President said:
"When a state, by seeking to
frustrate the orders of a federal
court, encourages mobs of extrem-
ists to flout the orders of a federal
court, and when a state refuses to
utilize its police powers to protect
against mobs persons who are
peaceably exercising their right
under the Constitution as defined
in such court orders, the oath of
office of the President requires
that he take action to give the
"Failure to act in such a case
would be tantamount to acquies-
cence in anarchy and dissolution
of the Union.;"
Russell's Telegram
Russell, in a 'telegram sent to
the President Thursday, said the
soldiers had cracked one citizen on
the head with a rifle butt and had
pushed others down a street with
bayonets at their throats.
The senator said the soldiers
were "disregarding and over-riding

the elementary rights of American
citizens by applying tactics which
must have been copied from the
manual issued the officers of Hit-
ler's storm troopers. .
"However, since you have seen
fit to order the troopers into ac-
tion, they should observe the ele-
mentary rights of American citi-
zens who are violating no federal
Sen. Russell said millions of
patriotic Americans "will strongly
resent the armed totalitarian po-'
lice state methods being employed
at Lttle Rock."
President's Reply
The President, in his reply, de-
Gov. Faubus
Might Close,,.
Central High
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (P)--Gov.
Orval Faubus said yesterday he
might try to close Central Highl
School, rather than continue its
integrated classes at federalbayo-
net point.
"It would be a very pleasant de-
velopment," he declared.
Gov. Faubus said enactment of
new laws at a special session of
the State Legislature would be a
necessary prelude to any such
drastic step. Earlier, he had re-
vealed he was considering calling
such a session although he has not
Yet done so.
Asked if a law to close the school
would stand up in court, Faubus
"I don't see why it shouldn't."
Gov. Faubus emphasized that any
such decision is still in the future.
He said he would proceed very
cautiously in any move to rid the
school of federal troops. They were
sent in this week by President
Dwight D. Eisenhower to enforce
the classroom integration of six
Negro girls and three boys.
The embattled governor-under
fire from President Eisenhower
during the weekend class recess at
the high school-talked to news-
men after conferring with a
mothers' group who beseeched him
to close the school.
Faubus conferred privately with
the mothers. He told newsmen
afterwards that he had given the

"I must say that I completely
fail to comprehend your compari-
son of our troops to Hitler's storm
troopers. In one case military
power was used to further -the
ambitions and purposes of a ruth-
less dictator; in the other to pre-
serve the institutions of free gov-
"You allege certain wrong-do-
ings on the part of individual
soldiers at Little Rock. The secre-
tary of the Army will assemble the
facts and report them directly to
President Eisenhower told Sen.
Russell that "few times in mY
life have I felt as saddened as
when the obligations of my office
required' me to order the use of a
force within a state to carry out
the decisions of the federal court."
Referred to Faubus
The President referred unmis-
takably to the action of Goy. Fau-
bus in calling out the National
Guard gept. 2 to bar nine Negroes
from attending classes at Central
High School on the ground he
wished to preventviolence.
"My conviction," said the Presi-
dent, "is that had the police
powers of the state of Arkansas
been utilized not to frustrate the
orders of the court, but to support
them, the ensuing violence and
open disrespect for the law and
for the federal judiciary would
never have occurred.
"The Arkansas National Guard
could have handled the situation
with ease had it been instructed:
to do so.

"As a matter of fact, had the
integration of Central High School,
been permitted to take place with-
out. the intervention of the Na-
tional Guard there 'is little doubt
that the process would have gone
along quite as smoothly and quiet-
ly as it has in other Arkansas
The President's telegram to Rus-
sell, concluded by the phrase,
"with warm regard," came just
two weeks after President Eisen-
hower had conferred here with
Faubus on the Little Rock situa-
' Faubus kept the guard on duty
after the conference, and the.
President subsequently expressed
himself as "deeply disappointed."

Deadline Near
Any campus organization want-
ing its 1957-58 president and tele-
phone number listed in this year's

The directory staff may be

year's directory contained the cor-
rect information, no call is neces-

Halftime Lead
At the half Michigan held a
slim 9-6 lead. But Michigan got
down to work and sewed up the
game, for all intents, with a 65-
yard touchdown thrust in the
third quarter.
The Johnston-Howard touch-
down play was the big thrill, for
USC in the second quarter.
Johnston got loose from several
tacklers as he plowed, stumbled
and fought his way to the four.
There he ran into Jim Dickey,
Michigan center. Johnston flipped
the ball back to Howard and he
went on over.
Late in the second, on the Tro-
jan 33,. Van Pelt was hard hit,
the ball plopped into the air and
207-pound tackle Rod Humenuik,
of USC grabbed it and started off
touchdown bound. Pace nailed
him about the Michigan 25, but
the referee ruled the whistle had
sounded before the fumble.
.Penalties Hurt
Penalties hurt both teams. A
holding penalty led to the safe-
ty aainst USC, and in the first
half alone USC lost 85 and Michi-
gan 55 on penalties.
The Trojans went to the air in
the final quarter and threw a mo-
mentary scare into the visitors.
They had an almost certain
touchdown on a 30-yard f pass
from reserve quarterback Willie
Wood to halfback Jack Willis, who
was in the end zone and had the
ball. But he dropped it as the
Trojan rooters groaned.
Michigan's second quarter safe-
ty looked important when USC
threatened to score in the final
minutes. The safety came when
quarterback Jim Conroy of the
Trojans was tackled in the end
zone by left guard Alex Callahan
