His first major item was a con-.
ference on the problem at the
White House today with a com-
mittee of Southern governors.
Gov. Marvin driffin of Georgia,'
who is opposed to integration of
white and Negro pupils, said at
Atlanta yesterday that he would
not attend. He was one of five
governors who had been selected.

Gov. Griffin said he was pas-
sing up the meeting- because Pres-
ident Eisenhower agreed to talk
only about integration, rather
than the question of pulling
troops out of Arkansas.
The President, called the con-
ference with the governors at
their request. They had asked
that it deal solely with the earli-
est possible removal of federal
troops sent into Little Rqck, Ark.,
to cope with integration disorders.

day silence to tell newsmen: "At
the moment it appears very like-
ly there will be a special session
of the ,Legislature, but that i
not definite or positive."
Legislators Oppose
There were unconfirmed re-
ports that Gov. Faubus' ardor for
a special session had been cooled
by some legislators who didn't like
the idea.
The governor said he personal-
1y was against a special session
because it would mean "a lot of
work and a terrific strain."
He also said that he does not
favor abolishing public schools,
but did not elaborate.
Davies Relieved

ing the day to be relieved of his
duies here. He was assigned here
from North Dakota district earli-
er in the segregation crisis.
Judge Davies upheld an Arkan-
sas federal judge in ordering in-
tegration to proceed at Central
High. His final ruling was in the
form of an injunction that pro-
hibited Gov. Faubus from using
the National Guard to bar the
nine Negroes fron Central High.
Chief Judge Archibald J. Gard-

Court of Appeals, said Davies will
be relieved at his own request "in.
a day or two." He will be replaced
by United States District Judge
Roy W. Harper of St. Louis.
Archibald said the shift was
routine and without "signifi-
cance." However, Davies has been
the target of biting criticism by

HOW'S THAT COUGH-Students who arrive at Health Service
with one or more symptoms of the Asian Flu are directed to a
special section of the building by Dr. Morley Beckett of the Health
Service staff.
'Cold'Epidemic Swamps
Health Service F acilities
An estimated 140 cases of "upper respiratory infection" yesterday
forced Health Service to institute emergency methods of taking care
of patients, director, Dr. Morley Beckett, said.
Of the "unusually high number" of students who reported to
Health Service complaining of colds, Dr. Beckett said he "wouldn't
doubt that there are some cases of Asian Flu."
It is impossible to tell by physical diagnosis if a person does have
the Flu, he explained. Only extensive laboratory tests will indicate if
the virus is present. Completed tests show one patient probably has
.\ !the disease, according to Dr. Bee-

roads, longtime opponents of the
Sen. Potter, in a statement re-
leased at a news conference, said
Presidential Assistant S h e r m a n
Adams has informed him "no final
action is likely in the immediate
future" on a proposal to shift the
Seaway Development Corp. from
the Army Department to the Com-
merce Department.
"Why move it into a department
which must, by its very nature,
concern itself with the welfare of
the railroads? Everyone remem-
bers how the railroads fought
passage of the Seaway Act. They're
still out to get the Seaway."

There is still no indication of
when preventative vaccine will be
available, he said. "I wish I could
say we had the vaccine."
The emergency program, which
sends patients complaining of cold
symptoms to the basement of the
building for examination, was in-
stituted at noon yesterday when
it became apparent that regular
Health Service procedure couldn't
efficiently handle the situation.
Basically, Asian Flu symptoms
are the same as those of the com-
mon cold or ordinary influenza,
fever, headache, thirst. Patients
with this complaint were referred
to a converted examination room
in the basement, where they were
examined by doctors.
Two extra doctors will be on
duty today, said Beckett, to handle
the overload.
At the 'present, the infirmary is
filled, including the extra beds put
in last week. But ; the patients
must be treated in the infirmary
and a bed is not available there
will be provision made for a bed
in University Hospital.
Beckett said that Health Service
will have extended clinic hours
as usual during the evening from
5 to 10 p.m. After 10 p.m. a night
doctor is on call.
"Are we at the peak, or just
starting?" asked Dr. Beckett, re-
ferring to the increase in com-
plaints. "I just don't know."

WASHINGTON (W) -\- The Sen-
ate Rackets Committee sent word
to the Teamsters Union conven-
tion yesterday that it has infor-
mation' which "clearly indicates
that 50 per cent or more" of the
union's delegates assembled in
Miami Beach were improperly se-
Sen. John McClellan (D-Ark.),1
committee chairman, made the
charge in a wire to William A.
Lee, Teamsters vice president.
Lee is campaigning for the un-
ion presidency in an attempt to
block the election of James R.
Hoffa, the front-running candi-
. Sen. McClellan turned over the
same information to Martin O'-
Donoghue, attorney for retiring
Teamsters President Dave Beck.
Beck had sent the lawyer to the
senator's office to get the report.
Declines Comment
O'Donoghue declined to com-
ment after talking to Sen. Mc-
Clellan, telling a reporter, "I have
a job to do and I'm going to do it."
He declined to explain the re-
mark and Sen. McClellan said he
did not know what O'Donoghue
might have meant.
The telegram to Lee listed 24
Teamsters locals, and said that
"we have ascertained, we believe
definitely" that the delegates
from them were not selected in
conformity with the union's con-
stitutional requirements.
Locals' Listed
"Wo have information, which
we have not yet had time to def-
initely confirm, that the delegates
of the following locals also were
not selected in accordance with
the provisions of the internation-
al constitution," the telegram
continued. It listed 44 locals in
this connection.
"Further information the com-
mittee has, but not yet fully con-
firmed, clearly indicates that 50
per cent or more of the delegates
in attendance were not selected
in accordance with constitutional
provisions," the telegram con-
Sen. McClellan told reporters
he had turned over to O'Donog-
hue a copy of the telegram and
an oral report on the 68 locals
listed. He said he assumed O'Don-
oghue would pass on the informa-
tion to Beck.

hardest five years of his life during
Beck's leadership of the union
to keep track of union funds.
-"What incentive is there for me
to go out and try to save you
$100,000, and then somebody rolls
a million down the gutter?" asked
Although an AFL-CIO vice-pres-
ident, English said those in the
federation "can all go straight to
hell" if they. buck the teamsters,
who are under a 30-day cleanup
order to avoid a threatened AFL-

William A. Lee, Chica'go, a rival
candidate against Hoffa for the
presidency of ;the scandal-rocked
union, said Beck turned down a
suggestion that Meany be .invited
to come to the convention to ex-.,
plain the federation's corruption
charges against the Teamsters.
Lee also charged .that two union
vice-presidents, unopposed yester-

own posts when they announced
support for him, were suddenly

Hare Relates
LANSING - Secrtary of State
James M. Hare reported yesterday
a phony agent for the McClellan
Committee tried to trick him out
of personal political records that
could embarrass Jimmy Hoffa and
his Teamsters Union.
Hare said the attempt to spring
the scheme was made last Thurs-
day in Roanoke, Va., where he
was attending a national meeting
of motor vehicle administrators.
The records involved are photo-
stats of fraudulent petitions cir-
culated. Hare said, by Teamsters-
Union organizers during the un-
ion's unsuccessful bid in 1950 for
control of the Democratic Party
organization in Detroit.
The petitions, which Hare said
contained wholesale forgeries,
-were designed to seat delegates to
the district Democratic conven-
tions that year in Det oit.
Had the plot succeeded pit would
have delivered party machinery
into Teamsters' hands and Hof
fa's direction.

bout Pressure Tactics
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (?P)--James R. Hoffa's political foes com-
plained of pressure tactics last night at the Teamsters convention
and lost an attempt to get AFL-CIO president George Meany to
address the delegates.'
These developments came as 68-year-old John F. English, the
Teamsters' secretary-treasurer and money c'aretaker, blasted retiring
president Dave Beck and other fellow Teamsters chiefs.

Beck's job although enmeshed in the union's scandals, appeared well

To Disarm
The United States yesterday chal-
lenged the Soviet Union to make
concessions so, that suspension of
nuclear tests would be "the first
thing to happen" on the road. to
world disarmament.
But the Soviet Union, charging
that the Western Powers were ig-
noring demands of "millions of
people throughout the world," re-
mained adamant on unconditional
suspension of tests, as well as
other Soviet disarmament pro-
The exchange came at a meeting
of the 12-nation 'United Nations
Disarmament Commission.
It was the first debate on dis-
armament at this Assembly "es-
sion, and there appeared to b no
change in positions of the East
or West since the London talks of
the commission's-subcommittee
ended in deadlock.
United States Ambassador Henry
Cabot Lodge called the issue of
suspending nuclear tests "the top
of the iceberg that bears testimony
to the dangerous mass below. To
tion of weapons would make no
contribution to the solution of the
real issues that confront us."
Lodge reiterated the Western
offer for suspending tests provided
that the Soviet Union agree on
establishing an effective inspection
system, stopping production of fis-
sionable materials for weapons
purposes and reducing existing
stocks, starting control of outer
space missiles and reducing the
numbers of men under arms.
He declared tha"Soviet unwill-
ingness to accept the Western pro-
posals could only mean that Soviet
conduct is explained "by its deter-
mination to impose military domi-
nation on the world."
Soviet Delegate Arkady A. Sobo-
lev accused the Western Powers of
wrecking all. attempts to reach
agreement on, suspension of nu-
clear tests. He said the West
adopted "frustrating" methods by
both military' and political, with
the issue.
Sobolev made plain the Soviet
Union intended to take advantage
of the U.N. forum to drum up
world support for Soviet arms re-
duction proposals.
