..Poles hate Russians
End Arms
PARIS (R) - Two solemn-faced
premiers yesterday wound up 13
hours of ponderous talks aimed at
ironing out British-French diffi-
culties over arms shipments to
While some wrinkles remained,
a high.French source suggested
France had ;scored at least a par-
tial victory.
The conference between young
Premier Felix Gaillard and Brit-,
s Prme Minister Harold Mac-
millan produced a vaguely-worded
communique that did not give a
black-and-white British promise
to halt arms shipments to the
neighbor of rebellious Algeria.
Talks Covered More
But the French informant said
the talks went far beyond the
wording in the communique. He
said the French do not expect the
British to ship any more arms to
Tunisia in the near future if at
"There is a difference between
what the British can do and what
they will do," he said.
Macmillan and Gaillard stood
almost stony-faced as the British
leader read the communique after
their talks. He had come to Paris
Monday in the hope of patching
up a troubled friendship.
Discussed Arms Shipment
The talks revolved around the
shipment on Nov. 14. and 15 of
arms to Tunisia by. the United
States and Britain. Also discussed
was the effect'' of a split in the
three allies would have on the
solidarity of NATO.
The communique noted that the
two chiefs of government had a
"frank discussion" on the arms
deliveries and decided to "make
arrangements designed to avoid
the recurrence of difficulties" sim-
ilar to the violent outburst of
French feelings.

Prof. John W. Addison, Jr. of
the mathematics department said
"the most striking surprise" in
Poland is the friendly attitude of
the Poles toward Americans, as
contrasted with "the intense'
hatred of the Germans and Rus-
sians in tho Poles whom I met."
Prof. Addison said he ioted a
tremendous interest in science'
among most of the Polish people,
whom he said have excelled in the
field of mathematics, "where one
does not need much psysical equip-,
ment, but only a pencil and paper."
, He also commented-on the "very
low standard of living," the "low
morals" of the Poles and the rem-.
nants of anti-Semitism which was
instilled during, the 1930's..
Ferrell Notes Friendliness
Prof. James 0. Ferrell of the
Slavic languages department also
noted the friendliness of the Poles
for Americans.
He said in the field of music,
rock and roll and jazz are very
popular with the Polish people, and
the quality of their theatrical pro-
ductions Is "very good."
Of the liberty which the Poles
enjoy, Prof. Ferrell said: "People
are intoxicated with their freedom
- they are not afraid to speak
their mind or to go where they

Prof. Edmunid Ordon of the
Slavic'department of Wayne State
University said that one important
factor in Poland was the "interest
of young people there in what is
happening in, the world."$
He also said the Poles are con-.
vinced that Europe needs a "unit-
ed states of Europe," but that they
must first come to terms with
Germany over Silesia.


Aid Funds
The University is requesting
more money for scholarships but
no special "sputnik inspired"
scholarship program, Vice-Presi-
dent for Student Affairs James A.
Lewis said yesterday.
The Legislature is being asked
to appropriate $711,800 for student.
aid and scholarships and as part
of the toal $40,118,984 operating
budget request.
The increase, $13,000 over ithe.
appropriation for this year, would
allow 50 additional high schools
to participate in the Regents-
Alumni scholarship program.
Lewis said although various
scholarship programs have been
suggested by some legislators, in
"view of the state's present tight
financial position it see ed prac-
tically impossible" for one school'
to set up its own program.
"If some 'special program is set
up in the field, it would probably
be a state wide program to interest
students in science," he said.

U.S. Missile
Flight Fails
Canaveral, Fla. () - The Army
fired its Jupiter missile into the
skies' last night but the missile
failed to complete its programmed
flight because of. technical diffi-
The missile rose almost straight
up and was brighter than any star
and was almost directly overhead
when last sighted from the beach
about four or five miles away.'
Shortly after the firing, the pub-
lic information office at Patrick.

ment saying the missile "failed
to complete its programmed flight,
because of technical difficulties."
No details wereravailable asnto
how far' the intermediate',range

There was/no official explana-
tion of what "technical difficul-

and Defense Department spokes-
men would not elaborate on the
brief statement.

Chill Believed Contributing Fa
Hospitalization Called Unneces
WASHINGTON (A) - A team of specialists confirm
terday that President Dwight D. Eisenhower has suf
blockage of a blood vessel'leading to the brain - a co
generally called a mild stroke.
But the specialists said:
"He is alert, his spirits are good."
- Speaking Difficulty Termed 'Improved'
And, although this second phy ical examination
President 'confirmed that the blockage "has produced a
difficulty in speaking," the medical men added:
"The difficulty in speaking has improved over the
of the last 24 hours and is now manifested only by
tancy in saying certain, difffi-
cult words. K fl W Al " 7

"Reading, writing and reason-
ing are not affected.-
Strength 'Normal'
"The President's p h y s i c a 1
strength is normal, and he is al-
lowed to be up and abouthis-home
the White House."
The first two reports used medi-
cal, aid greatly similar, language
to say what has stricken President
Eisenhower - an occlusion or
blockage of a branch of a brain
This condition is what is com-
monly called a stroke, although
that word was not used in either
medical report.
Nixon Visits President
Vice-President Nixon,' who pent
nearly -nine hours at }the White
House today, said that President
Eisenhower is "fully capable" of
making any major decisions that
come up.
And he expressed himself "com-
pletely confident the President
will return to his desk and re-
sume his responsibilities."
The President's condition was
revealed in midafternoon after
approximately 24 hours-in which
the White House had stuck to its
original description as "a chill"
Brain Artery Blocked
A key part of the 3 p.m. medi-
cal report, signed by- the White
House physician, Maj. Gen. How-
ard M. Snyder, and Maj. Gen.
Leonard D. Heaton, commandant
of the Arniy's Walter Reed Hos-
pital, °said:
"The President suffered an oc-
clusion blockage of a small branch
of the middle cerebral artery on
the left side. It cannot be deter-
mined at this time wliether the
condition present is one of a small
clot or a vascular spasm. All find-
ings indicate no brain hemor-
They said this confirmed their
original diagnosis, made Monday
afternoon after President Eisen-
hower complained of a chill and
went to bed.
Wanted to View Condition
Asked why the finding had not
been supplied to the public
promptly by Dr. Snyder yesterday,
Mrs. Anne Wheaton, acting White
House press secretary, said in ex-
"It was not made known at that
time because he wanted to ob-
serve the condition and give a
full and complete report to the
Americandpeople;when all the
facts were at hand."
Repercussions from the Presi-
dent's illness were swift:
Stock Market Slumps
1. A heavy selling wave hit the
stock market in New York, send-
ing prices down as much as $7 a
share. All sorts of stocks were hit
by the selling.
2. Unofficial speculation arose
as to how the government's af-
fairs - that is, those which are
especially in the President's pro-
vince - will be handled.
In this connection, the doctors
"Although the present condition
