North Sumatra Scene of New Crisis
As Military Head Seizes Enterprises
sed JAKARTA, Indonesia (RP)-Communist-run unions took over three.
ent big Dutch banks today and an, Indonesian news 'agency said the
>sal military had seized all Dutch property in revolt-minded North Sumatra.
ons The P.I.A. News Agency reported the military commander of
,ret North Sumatra, Lt. Col. Djamin Gintings, seized the enterprises to
prevent them from falling into the hands of trade unions. The big'
da- island of Sumatra is rich in resources. Many British, French and
as American firms are in the area.
It was, not clear immediately whether Gintings' seizures meant
ationalization of the Dutch firms. Dutch interests in North Sumatra
"included 'the control of railways
and communicatins as well as elec-
tricity, gas and water supplies.
North Sumatra 'was the scene last
December of an unsuccessful )re-
volt led by former army com-
mander Col. Maladin Simbolon.
Gintings was sent there to replace

BELGRADE, Yugoslavia (W) --
Usually well-informed Yugoslav
sources said yesterday night this
country has spurned any further
United States military aid.
President Tito, these informants
said, told United States Ambassa-
dor James Riddleberger of the de-
cision Friday with a statement
that the aid was being declinedr
because of frequent "reappraisals"
made of it by the United States;
Tito called the reappraisals "hu-
miliating 'for Yugoslavia," the in-
Riddleberger and the president
conferred Friday at Brioni Island,
where Tito has been recovering
from a bout with lumbago.
Riddleberger could not be reach-
ed for comment on Saturday
night's report, and officials at the
United States Embassy declined to
confirm or deny it.
The State Department in Wash-
ington said it had not received a
report from Riddleberger on his
talk with Tito.
The Yugoslav informants said
Yugoslavia wants to continue'
friendly economic and political re-
lationships with the United States.'
American military aid was first
granted to Yugoslavia after it was
booted out of the Soviet-led Com-
inform in 1948.

Officials of the Vanguard control
center in Washington, said then

security reasons. He said they in-

WASHINGTON (M)-The Strate-
gic Air Force appeared likely yes-
terday to share substantially in the
increase 'in defense spending.
While much of the two billion
will be earmarked for a speedup
in the missiles program, the long-
range planes are expected to get a
sizable chunk also.
Sen. A. W. Robertson (D-Va.),
a member of the Senate Approri-
ations Committee, said the Air
Force alone has asked for a two.
billion dollar increase in the next
fiscal year over its eu'rrent budget.
Whatever final budgetary deci-
sion is made by President Dwight
D. Eisenhower and his aides, the
Strategic Air Command (SAC) has

He also emphasized the nation-

President Hatcher quoted statis-
tics showing the average of faculty
salaries declined slightly fiom the
$5,000 average in 1908. This would
be approximately $20,000 in real

) Loan funds were a much dis-
n cussei area, the consensus' being
that the greater availability of
s loans during the junior and senior
- years which would be paid back
s after leaving school would be. a,
t good idea, but that students would
be unwilling to borrow for all four
a years of college.
o Walter B. Rea, dean of men,
- said that the effect of increased
- costs is reflected in the amount of
funds loaned to students this year.
Capacity Loan Use
He told the group discussing
"The Effect of Increased Costs to
the Campus Community" that loan
funds were utilized almost to ca-
pacity this year. He said it was
the first time in 20 years that loan
funds clad approached the "bot-
tom of the barrel."
Desire for cheaper housing was
expressed by some student mem-
s bers of the group. University Vice-
President Marvin L. Niehuss said
the University could provide apart-
ments on North Campus more
- cheaply than any other way.
He said there were financing
obstacles to such a project, how-
