For Hoffa
United States Court of Appeals
yesterday refused to lift a two-
week-old i nj u n ct i o n against
James R. Hoffa takin gover presi-
dency of the Teamsters Union.
The appeals -court ordered a
speedy trial of charges that Hoffa
and other Teamsters bosses rigged

his election.
Hoffa and his associates are ac-
cused of conspiring to put Hoffa
in office to succeed retiring union
president Dave Beck.
'Farther Than Necessary'
The injunction was granted
Oct. 23 by United States District
Judge F. Dickinson Letts. The ap-
peals court said Judge Letts may
have gone "farther than' neces-
sary" in some of his conclusions
at this stage of the case.
The appeals court, made up of
Judges Wilbur K. Miller, Charles
F. Fahy and George T. Washing-
ton, said however the injunction
order was a "proper exercise of
judicial authority."
In one respect the appeals court
stiffened the Letts injunction.
Banned Spending
Letts had banned the Teamsters
from acting or spending money
except in line with the union's
1952 constitution.
The appeals court, affirming
this, said also that none of the
constitutional changes voted at
the contested convention should
go into effect pending trial of the
convention's legality.
Letts has not yet set a trial date,
but probably will do so soon.
The appeals ..ourt invited the
Teamsters to seek again to ,hav.e
the injunction dissolved if there is
any undue trial delay.

U. Ec o Oulok Bleak 'in '58

The Soviet Union is using bar-
ter deals with the uncommitted
nations of the world to convert
economic weaknesses into politi-
cal strengths, Prof. Wolfgang
Stolper of the economics depart-
ment said yesterday. .
"The countries of the Soviet
bloc have one secret weapon in
their agricultural inefficiency.
They are the one area which can
absorb othe rcountries agricultur-
al and raw material surplusses
with the greatest of ease," he ex-
Speaking before the fifth an-
nual Conference on Economic
Outlook, sponsored by the econ-
omics department, Prof. Stolper
said, "Already Egyptian cotton is

Soviets partly by trading more
with Red satellites.
"Foreign aid to 'India and other
underdeveloped countries would
keep them outside the Soviet or-
bit. It would increase their econ-
cmic development and integrate
them 'with our kind of world."
Cites Difference
The economist cited West Ger-
many's integration/ into an in-'
ternational economy as a major
cause of the difference in econom-
ic development between it and
East Germany.
/ While West Germany enjoyed
relatively few trade restrictions
and is now well advanced eeonom-
ically, Prof. Stolper noted, the
East Germany attempt to achieve
as great self-sufficiency as pos-
sible has led to' a greater depend-,
ence on imports."
Prof. Stolper cited other reason
for the failure of East Germany
to match the West in economic
development. Among them:
Reds 'Think Big'
1) Gigantomania in industry --
the tendency for Communist
planners to "think big" as Amer-
ican businessmen might put it.
2) Failure to develop realistic
pricing mechanisms. "Prices play
no part in determining what shall
be imported or exported and how.
much," he said.
3) Exploitation by Russia.

Ike To Meet Cabinet Today
To Discuss 1958 Program

A gloomy picture of the Ameri-
can economy was painted yester-
day by the director of the Univer-
sity of Illinois Bureau of Economic
V. Lewis Bassie opened the first
session of the fifth annual Confer-
ence on Economic Outlook warned
that continuous decline will mark
the economic year. n
"Beyond that there is no stop-
ping point in sight for another
year at least," he said. The trend
will be toward dwindling business
and rising unemployment, the eco-
nomists and businessmen from
around the country were told.
Major Letdown Ahead
"We are now facing the major
letdown of a great post war busi-
ness cycle," Bassie said. "Every
postwar boom has been followed
by a major depression and there
is no reason to think that this one
will have a different ending."
He said declining capital out-
lays, government expenditures and
net foreign investment will prob-
ably set the inventory and con
sumer credit cycles into their sim-
ilar liquidating (declining) phases.
The reaction in housing may be
slower, but it seems more likely
that the decline will again ac-
celerate by mid-year."'
-Evident inStock Market
The patterns of a postwar de-
cline are most evident, Bassie said,
in the stock market and in busi-
ness investment." "To a lesser
extent, the developmen'ts in re-'
sidential construction, in business
inventories, and in consumer cred-
it also fit well into a cyclical inter-
pretation of the current situation."
He said there is "just ,a mar-
ginal possibility of something like
See*other Conference story, page 8
stability continuing in 1958. This
involves a combination of develop-
ments whose probability is lo se
to the vanishing point."'
Bassie added that the govern-
ment could' be expected to com-
pensate for the decline and gov-
ernment 'expenditures may turn
upby late next year.
Programs Helpless
"But any programs that can be
put into action in that period will
be Impotent to offset the defla-
tionary forces in private economy,"
Bassie predicted.
A survey of 100 of the nation's.
top economists attending the con-
ference is not expected to fully
support the bleak conclusiones
drawn by Bassie. The results of
'the survey will be released today.
Two Captured
'For .Beating
Of eU' Student
f ^
Michigan State Police are hold-
ing John H. Outzs, a Jackson
State Prison parolee, and William
D. George of Lansingfor atheir
brutal beating of ,Allen Robinette
'59, early yesterday morning.
The two men offered Robinette
a ride while he ,was hitch-hiking
here from East Lansing. When
they had left the outskirts of that
city, Outzs struck Robinette in the
'face with his fist.
Outzs then forced him to the
floor of the car while George
drove over the country roads
north of East Lansing. Calling
Rbinette a "college punk, Outzs
slashed him with the student's
pocket knife. 'j
"He asked me how much good
my education- would be when he
had killed me," Robinette said.
After threatening' him for. ap-
proximately a half hour, the two
men, robbed Robinette of hisI
watch and 46 cents. They finally
knocked the student into a ditch
and kicked him.
Robinette tried three farm
houses before he could find a

farmer who would permit him to
use his phone.

Another Manhattan Project
Prof. David Dennison, chairman
of the physics department, called
for a "crash" program similar to
the Manhattan Project which de-
veloped the atomic bomb in 1944.
"We have two important things
to do," Prof. Dennison said. "The
first is to continue . our general,
scientific research, basic and ap-
plied. In order to do this, we must
increase the supply of trained
"The second is catch up on the
missile and satellite program. For
this, a type of crash program is
necessary." Prof. 'Dennison warned
however that "we must make every
effort to do both of these and not
'short-change' basic research by
putting all scientists to work in
missile and satellite areas."
Prof. Dennison said that the
lackg of funds has not been the only
reason for the failure of the
United States to move fast enough
in scientific research. Agreeing
with Prof. Goldberg, he said that
the lack of public support of
science is as much to blame.

Tell Secrets
Of SputnikIt

WASHINGTON (A. - President l
Dwight D. Eisenhower will hold a
special cabinet meeting today but
the White House said this is not
because of any emergency.
Mrs. Anne Wheaton, associate
presidential press secretary, an-
nounced the meeting at a news
conference yesterday.
She said specifically in reply to
a question that Russia's launching
of. a huge new earth satellite had
nothing to do with it, that the

meeting was planned before Sput-
nik II was put into its orbit.
However, it appeared inevitable
that any meeting of President
Eisenhower and his advisers would
at leastitouch on the ramifications
of Russia's new scientific strides
and their re'lation to world peace.
The cabineb will also meet on
Friday, its usual day. Mrs. Whea-
ton said both sessions this week
will deal with plans for the ad-I
ministration's legislative and
-spending programs next year.

NEW YORK 'M) - There are

So far Russia hasn't yet told
what she has learned from Sput-
nik the first.
But when it was launched a
month ago, a Soviet scientist said
it was a test shot and therefore

But Russia appears to regard
Sputnik the second as an official
IGY undertaking.
The first official announcement
said it was launched "in conform-
ity with the IGY program" to
study the upper air and space.
No such phrase was used regard-
ing Sputnik the first.,
A second sign of Russian co-
operation on Sputniks is that its:
first announcement gave more de-
tails about this second satellite.
It said, for example, that-it car-
ried instruments for study of cos-
mic rays, X-rays and ultraviolet
rays from the sun, temperatures
and pressures in space. t
With Sputnik the first, there
were initially conflicting reports
about whether it carried scientific
instruments, and what kinds.
On each launching, Russia an-,t
nounced the orbit ranges, weights

Carl Sandburg To Keynote First International Week

The first International Week will open officially today as Carl
Sandburg, gives the keynote speech at 8 p.m. in Hill Auditorium.
The noted poet, biographer and commentator on the American.
scene will speak on "Human Aspects Involved in the Relations of
Men of All Nations and Races."
Sandburg will also read some of his poetry and sing American
folk songs, providing his own guitar accompaniment, according to
Barbara Black, '59, International Coordinatigng Committee co-,
To Read from 'Family of Man'
He plans to read parts of his introduction to the "Family' of
Man," a collection of photographs from all nations, which has been
taken as the theme of International Week.
Tickets for the Union sponsored speech will be on sale today
at the main desk of the Michigan Union. Remaining tickets will be
on sale at Hill Auditorium before the lecture, according to Richard
Schwartz, '59, Union international committee chairman.
International Week will "highlight the work of the University in,
the field of international affairs" according to William West, as-
sistant counsel6r at the International Center. The University has over
1500 foreign students, more than any other single campus in the
United States.
