Study Problem in Second Meeting;
Truman Suggests Tax Increase
WASHINGTON (.') - President Dwight D. Eisenhower and the
National Security Council dug again yesterday into the question of.
how to shape the federal budget to the demands of space age defense.
The meeting was the second such this week and was secret, as
always.
Press Secretary James C. Hageyty said it was not possible at
this time to expand on President Eisenhower's statement Wednesday
night at Oklahoma City about cutting down on nondefense spending
to permit a considerable increase on defense.

rthy of the Baltimore Afro-
erican said in an interview yes-

"American education is in dan-
ger of being reduced to a satellite
of the Russian system, spinning
in an orbit directed by Russian
scientists."
Ray Farabee, president of the
National Students Association,
said at a news conference in
Washington, D. C., yesterday the
Amreican student would be the
loser if the UnitedStates is panic-
ed into a race with Russia to pro-
duce scientists and technicians.r
He said the American. student
has become increasingly more
aware, during the past decade, of.
the grave crisis that has been de-
veloping in education.
Keep Humanist System
Commenting on the report on
Soviet education published recent-
ly by the Office of Education,
Farrabee said "it would be dis-
astrous if we abandoned our tra-
ditional humanistic-oriented edu-
national system in favor of the
Russian science - centered voca-
tional training."
Arnold Armstutz, president of
the student body'at Massachusetts
Institute of Technology, remarked
that students, with aptitude and
interest in. science and technology
should spend their college years
in the most productive way pos-
sible.
"Inorder to succeed, the student
needs to recognize that becoming
an educated scientist or engineer
is a full-time vocation," Armstutz
said. He cited the need for the'
"humanistic scientist" who is the
"realized product of many years
of educational effort."
Students Can Contribute
Farrabee said students can con-
tribute to the increased effective-
ness of American education by
assuming greater responsibility in
the eaucational community.
Delegates to the 10th National
Student Congress in Ann Arbor
last August formulated a national
program designed "to increase
their contribution to the solution
of basic problems," he said.
These basic problems include:
student economic problems, over-
crowded classrooms, the shortage
of teachers and federal aid to edu-
cation, Farrabee added.
Students are willing and pre-
pared to make the contribution1
necessary for the survival of the
American educational system and
its improvement, he said. "We1
don't want to be coddled, but even
less do "ve want our education
dictated by fear of the Kremlin."

wentiic-military drive is to raise
taxes.
"You have a situation to meet
and there is only one way to do
it," Truman raid. "There has to
be a tax increase.
"The bill is going to have to be
paid, and there is only one place
the money can come from."
Truman offered his opinion in a
chat with newsmen in New York.
It was immediately called prema- '
ture by twoesenators in Washing-
ton, Democrat John L. McClellan
of Arkansas and Republican 1. E.
Flanders of Vermont.
Sen. McClellan said, "Before we
start talking about higher taxes
we ought to have some concrete
definite plan and program which
we don't now have Let's get that
first and talk about taxes later."
,Organize Project
Sen. Flanders said, "The first
thing to do is to organize the
project and if this shows that ad-
ditional money is needed the Con-
gress will provide it and the peo-
ple, I am sure, will gladly submit
to any tax increase that isdemon-
strated to be really essential."
Sen. Flanders added that too
often the immediate political an-
swer to a problem is "let's give 'em
another billion dollars."
Two Billion a Year
Sen. Bridges (R-N.H) said last
Friday after a visit to President
Eisenhower that it might. require
another one or two billion dollars
a year to finance the push to over-
take Russia. Defense spending
now is at the rate of about 38 bil-
lion dollars a year.
Hagerty said conferences are
constantly going on to determine.
the size and nature of the budget
which President Eisenhower will
submit in January for the fiscal
year beginning next July1.

UN Seeks
New Arms
Conferences
Assembly Approves
Five-Nation Talks
UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (A)-
The United Nations called yester-
day for new talks to break th
disarmament deadlock despite th
Soviet Union's announcement i
will refuse to take part in them.
By a vote of 56-9 the 82-natior
General Assembly approved a
Western resolution asking for nev
negotiations in the five-nation U
disarmament subcommittee wit
priority given Western proposals
Only the Soviet bloc opposed th
resolution. Fifteen nations ab-
stained and two were absent.
To Meet Today
But the Assembly will meet to-
day to consider a proposal for en.
larging the UN Disarmament Com-
mission, submitted in, the hope
that the Soviet Union will change
its mind on walking out on future
negotiations.
Canada and Japan introduced a
resolution supported by the West-
ern powers calling for addition of
10 new nations to the commission
Reds Won't Attend
The Soviet Union made clear it
has no intention of attending any
more meetings of the subcommit-
tee, made up of Britain, France,
the United States, Canada and
the Soviet Union.
It has indicated a willingiess to
accept an enlarged commission,
provided the countries added give
the commission a more satisfac-
tory makeup in the Soviet point
of view.
The Russians say an enlarged
commission could set up subcom-
mittees where additional negotia-
tions are possible.
Outside the Assembly a move
developed to add more countries
to the 10 already'proposed. In-
formed sources said the Russians
might be satisfied if Egypt, Po-
land and Mexico were added to
the list.
Union Senate
Adopts Method
Of Procedure
Members of Union Senate unan-
imously approved last night the
procedure submitted by the plan-
ning committee.
By a 70 to nothing vote, the
Senate quickly disposed of the
procedural question and resumed
the agenda of last meeting, which
had been suspended while proced-
ure was ironed out.
Exam Schedule
A motion proposing that the
University publish examination
schedules before registration was
approved by a vote of 59 to 11. The
Senate recommended that this
method be given a one semester
trial basis. Nat Freidman, '60E
said the idea was recommended
"for those students who have final
examinations bunched together."
Using the adopted procedure,
the Senate then took up a discus-
sion of Homecoming. Only minor
difficulties arose as the Senate
recommended various changes in
homecoming.
Homecoming Revision
By a show of hands it approved
the following recommendations for
the next Homecoming: less tickets

sold to the Homecoming dance,
improved decorations, a coat-
checking system and ventilation at
the dance, more publiclyfor events
on Saturday morning of Home-
coming and leaving displays up for
a longer period.
Discussion on a Homecoming
queen was postponed until the Dec.
4 meeting, because members said
they wished to discuss the matter
with their houses.

Pianist Serkin
Gives Concert
At. Hill Today

In Ann Arbor to deliver his
Journalism lecture Wednesday, the
foreign correspondent described
China as "the most complete dic-
tatorship the world has ever
known," but expressed the belief
that Western-educated adminis-
trators may "leaven" the policies
of the huge totalitarian state.
During his six weeks inside Red
China, Worthy was more or less
free to do as he pleased, he said,
with ,the exception of visiting
Fukien province, across the straits
from Formosa, where a heavy mili-
tary buildup apparently has taken
place. Worthy's broadcasts, tapes
and movies were uncensored, in
marked contrast to Chinese papers
which enjoy no freedom.
Contrasts China to Russia.
In contrast to Russia, Worthy
said, China is much more accomo-
dating, a characteristic which he
t attributes to Chinese cosmopoli-
tanism as oposed to Russian xeno-
phobia, rather than any difference
in degree of communism.
When asked to contrast China
with India, Worthy replied that
the difference was that between a
slave nation and a free one. There
are no civil liberties in Red China,
he emphasized.
On the positive side, Worthy
praised the efficiency of the pres-
ent Chinese regime in eliminating
contagious disease and establish-
ing a program of birth control.
Much malnutrition has also been
eliminated, though the govern-
ment, he points out, admits the
existence of famine areas.
No Illusions
Worthy, however, says he has no
illusions about the attitude of the

He made his debut at the age
of twelve With the Vienna Sym-

Serkin's first visit to the United

.A motion to "initiate 'a critical
evaluation of the Inter-House
Council" was passed yesterday by
the ITC Presidium.
"The IHC executive cabinet may
'implement this evaluation in any
way he sees fit," and a progress
report will be submitted by the
cabinet to the Presidium meeting.
Dec. 5, the motion states.
Fred Channon, '59E, Gomberg
House president, submitted the
motion which was based on the
South Quadrangle motion to de-
mand an IHC" evaluation under
threat of withdrawal if no action
is taken.
Channon Claims Ineffectiveness
"The IHC has not been an effec-
tive organization on campus,"
Channon added. "But the very
discussion of the South Quadrangle
action has affected a change in
the organization."
He emphasized that it must be
provided that the IHC continue its
programs which have been dis-
cussed in the past two weeks.
Criticism of the motion came
from members who said that the

WASHINGTON W)--James G.
Gross, accused of corruption as
president of the Bakery Workers
Union, announced yesterday he
will run for re-election.
He made the announcement in
the face of an edict from the AFL-
CIO executive council, which has
threatened to throw the bakers
out unless they hold a new election
with Cross disqualified to run.
Leaders of the bakery workers
did vote to hold a new election,
within 90 days if possible. The vote
was taken by the union's executive
board.
But Cross said no bar was im-
posed against his running, again
and he intends to. He also said the
bakery union leaders voted against
a motion to reinstate Curtis R.
Sims as secretary-treasurer by
Friday, as stipulated by the AFL->
CIO council.

tion said that yesterday's Presid-
ium agenda was the most complete
he had seen. Drake Duane, '58, IHC
president, said many items on the
agenda were considered before dis-
cussion of evaluation began.
*Duane, speaking for IHC0 execu-
tive cabinet, said this type of eval-
uation "may be necessary to make
the IHC Presidium what it should
be. Suggestions will be gone over
very carefully and a thorough pro-

that his main puri.ose was ex-
