Proposes Initial Tests
He said there must be two tests.
First, if the project is designed for
scientific purposes, the size and
cost must be tailored to the scien-
tific Job to be done.
"We intend to carry forward our
programs in a way that will do
credit to our scientific tradition
and insure our security over the
years ahead," the President said.
"This will involve substantial cost."

Cede Some.
WASHINGTON (A)-- Secretary,
of State John Foster Dulles said
yesterday the American people
"may-have to give up some small
marginal freedoms" to cope with
the Soviet world pressures..
He did not say what freedoms
might have to be relinquished but
indicated they were connected
with forming an international
front against hostile communism
and making financial sacrifices to
keep the West strong.
"But the essential thing is whe-
ther we can retain the great bulk
of our freedoms and at -the same
time beat -back this great mono-
lithic structure," Dulles said.
"I have no doubt it can be done
and with results that will spread
freedom across the world."
Secretary of Commerce Sinclaim
Weeks, who preceded him, told the
executives that in federal budget
making this year the emphasis is
on "less butter and more guns."
Weeks Comments
Dulles said that while foreign
aid is not too popular in this coun-
try it is "absolutely essential to
hold together the free world."
Failure to maintain the foreign
aid program, he asserted, "would
involve the 'giveaway' of large
parts of the free world and would
leave the United States encircled
to a point of strangulation."
The American people must ac-
cept certain conditions, he said,
to overcome the great volume of
concentrated effort being made
under the Soviet dictatorship.

West Seeks Actlon To Avoid
Red Disarmament Boycott
UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. () - The Western poers sought
yesterday to avoid a Soviet boycott of disarmament negotiations by
agreeing to add 10 new nations to the United Nations Disarmament
The Soviet Union appeared satisfied over the number, but ob-
jected to the political makeup of the group backed by the West.
x India Objects to List
India, which advanced the enlargement plan in behind-the-
scenes compromise negotiations, also was reported dissatisfied with
the countries suggested by the West. The West's choices did' not jibe
with a list being pushed by India.
Western agreement on enlarging the 12-nation commission was
reached at a secret meeting attended by the representatives of the

Drake Duane, '58, Inter-House
Council president, commenting
yesterday on the proposed re-
evaluation of the Inter - house
Council, said that he was "happy
to see the call for re-evaluation,"
adding that it would be considered
today by the IHC Presidium.
The re-evaluation question came
to a head Tuesday night when the
South Quadrangle Council in an.
ultimatum threatened to withdraw
"bodily and financially" from the
IHC if no action was taken on the
matter within three weeks.
Jack Hale, resident director of
West Quadrangle also comment-
ing on the proposal, said, "I hope
that as a result of the action, the
interests of both residents and the
IHC are kept in mind and served."
' Also in reference to the re-eval-
uation, Drake noted that "there
are other methods of doing it, but
this is the one they asked for, and'
this is the way we will conduct

United States, Britain, France and
A formal resolution embodying
the proposal will be presented to
a meeting of the 82-nation Gen-
eral Assembly today.
Russia Announces Boycott '
The Soviet Union has an-
nounced it will not attend meet-
ings of the commission or its five-
nation subcommittee as they are
presently organized.
This would result in a complete
breakdown of East-West negotia-
tions in the UN on disarmament.
The Russians proposed last
week that the commission - the
parent body for disarmament ne-
gotiations -- be enlarged to in-
clude all 82 members. But they
have since hinted that if India's
plan is approved they will not
push their proposal.
Specific Objection Withheld
Neither the Western nations nor
India would disclose their specif-
fic choices, but one of the main
difficulties revolved apparently
around the Eastern European na-
tions to be added.
Months of disarmament nego-
tiations in the subcommittee end-
ed in a deadlock in London last

Union Senate.
Meets Today
The Union Senate will tackle
procedures when it meets at 7:30
p.m. today in the Union Ballroom.
It will act on a planning com-
mittee proposal on procedure, ac-
cording to Fred Wilten, '58E,
Union executive vice-president..
According to Wilten, the agenda
of the first meeting will be re-
sumed if there is enough time re-

5,347 persons voted.
Interfraternity Council Secre-
tary, Bert Getz, '59 BAd., was
elected to the Council on the sev-
enth ballot. Getz drew 833 votes
when the quota was 722.
Getz Wins 133 Votes
He picked up 133 votes on the
seventh ballot after gaining none
on the sixth.
Before his election an especial-
ly tense situation developed wher
five candidates were separated b
only 24 votes.
Incumbent Dan Belin, '59, was
the next candidate to be elected.
He pulled 755 vtes with a quota
of 700.
Linda Rainwater, '60, was
elected on the same ballot. She
drew 706 votes.
Wurster Elected Sixth-
The sixth candidate "to be
elected was Lois Wurster, '60. 'She
beat Mort_ Wise, '57, by approxi-.
mately 30 votes., She will only
serve a half term, because she is
replacing Judy Martin, '59, who
resigned from the Council two
weeks ago.
Approkimately 200 people wit-
nessed the election count which
took place in the League.
Wise and Miss Wurster fought
it out for the last position. Wise
had 620 votes and Miss Wurster
