The activity coincided with a
warning by Isa Anshary, a leading
member of Masiumi, the biggest
Moslem party, that Indonesia has
been infiltrated by foreign Com-
munists who are seeking to over-
throw the eight-year-old republic.

Dulles Goes
Ike To Leave Today
For Summit Meeting
WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary
of State John oster Dulles took
off yesterday for the NATO meet-
ing in Paris and President Dwight
D. Eisenhower prepared to do the
same today. .
Dulles declined to make a de-
parting statement-he usually ha
one for reporters at the airport.
'I am just one of the President's
assistants. I am going now just to
do a little preparatory work before
he gets there."
Eisenhower met yesterday morn-
ing with the National Security
Council and the White House said
it could be assumed that some of
the topics taken up were among
those to be considered at the
summit meeting of the North At-
lantic Treaty Organization.
It was only Tuesday that Eisen-
hower's doctors settled the ques-
tion of whether he would attend
the Paris meeting. They said then
that his progress from his mild
stroke of Nov. 25 was such as to
permit the trip.
Eisenhower is to take off this
afternoon, take part in the NATO
meetings Monday, Tuesday and
Wednesday and fly back Thursd'ay.
A State Department press officer,
Lincoln White, said yesterday there
will be serious consultations with
'United States allies on the letter
sent to Eisenhower by Premier
Bulganin Tuesday.

. asks leadership
Sallade Asks
for Greater
Rep. George W. Sallade (R-Ann
Arbor) last night called for "new
and vigorous leadership in the
state capital" at a meeting of the
Young Republican Club.
Sallade sharply criticized' "con-
ferences of governors that serve
well as a build-up for potential
presidential candidates, but re-
sult in neglect of the more .im-
mediate unpleasantries so self-
evident at home."
Declining mention of specific
names, Sallade said that "politi-
cians remaining too long in of-
fice finally convince themselves of
their own inlispensability."
Leads to Repetition
He said this leads to "repeti-
tious" legislative programs that
"insult 'the intellectual capacities
of the people with their obvious
impracticability and impossible
Sallade said. that re-election of
the same executive officers might
cause "government for two years
by a 'state house guard' while the
chief executive goes delegate-
The Republican party, accord-
ing to Sallade, is facing, a "criti-
cal challenge" in the coming
months. He said the GOP must
demonstrate its capacity for lead-
ership with "concrete remedie of
a positive and constructive na-
ture" and a "sound approach to
stepping up economic develop-
ment" in the state. -
Needs Candidate
"To win the forthcoming
battle," Sallade said, "the Repub-
lican party needs a candidate who
has sufficiently separated himself
from the special economic inter-
ests that have hung like an alba-
tross around the neck of the GOP.
"At present," he continued,
"none of the so-called party
spokesmen fit this qualification."
Sallade himself is considered a
candidate for the Republican gu-
bernatorial nomination in 1958.
Outlines Platform
Sallade also outlined briefly his
legislative platform for the 1958
session, stressing his opposition
to any increase in college tuition.
He was strongly in favor o a
$4,000 minimum annual wage for
elementary school teachers and a
one dollar minimum hourly wage
for intra-state business.
In later action at the meeting,
the YR's elected Jerry Lutz, '59,
president for the coming year.
Ron Koss '58D, was clamed vice-
president, Fran Coulon, '59Ed,
treasurer and Barbara An Miller,
'61, and Sharon McKay, '61 were
elected Recording and Corre-
sponding Secretaries, respectively.

CIO yesterday condemned the
Senate Rackets Investigating Com-
mittee as unfair, but pledged a
continuing drive to rid labor's
ranks of corruption.-
The federation wound .up its
convention by re-electing President
George Meany, who called on labor
to "stick to its knitting" in boost-
ing wages and organizing new
If we organize well, if we bar-
gain well," Meany said, "we will
build. up the, standards. Out of
them will flow benefits to thecom-
munity and to society as a whole."
Oust Union
In final actions the convention
ousted the Laundry and Bakery
Workers unions on rackets and
corruption charges. Earlier in the
convention, the Teamsters were
similarly expelled.
These ousters reduced over-all
AFL-CIO membership from 15 mil-
lion to about 13% million,
A convention resolution blasted
the Senate committee headed by
Sen. John McClellan (D-Ark) for
lack of objectivity and fairness in
its hearings and failing to look for
corruption in business with the
same fervor as in labor.
Find Corruption Small
"Corruption within the Ameri-
can labor movement is but a small

part of the over-all problem in the
whole of our society," the resolu-
tion said.
"While acknowledging the
wrongdoings of a small 'minority
in the leadership of a few unions
we believe that objectivity requires
recognition that in a society over-
emphasizing material wealth more
corruption will be found in busi-
ness and industry."
The resolution singled out Sens.
Barry M. Goldwater (R-Ariz.),
Carl T. Curtis (R-Neb.) and Karl
E. Mundt (R-S.D,), members of
the McClellan committee, as being
politically motivated in harrassing
"clean and honest unions."

Re-elected with Meany as AFL-
CI officers were Secretary-Treas-
urer William Schnitzler arqd 25
vice presidents. Elected astnew'
vice presidents were Peter T.
Schoemann, Plumbers Union pres-
ident, and Paul L. Phillips, Paper
Workers president.
Meany, in accepting're-election,
said the convention had demon-
strated that while the AFL-CIO is
reluctant to oust corrupt unions
it will do so when there is no
other way to obtain necessar'y re-
Ralph T. Fagan, Laundry Work-I
ers, appealed to the convention in
a futile effort to avoid his union's

M otormen Want Amn'esty
NEW YORK (A)-Striking subway motormen yesterday demanded
full amnesty as their price for ending a crippling four-day walkout.
They also insisted on a voice in collective transit bargaining.
They asked Mayor Robert E. Wagner to meet with them as soon
as possible to discuss their proposal, which they called "a fair basis
for settling the strike."
Offer Amnesty to Motormen'.
Earlier in the day, the Transit Authority offered the motormen
partial amnesty as the strike rapidly lost its impact. More lines were
returning to service and strikers by the score joined a back to work
movement. The strikers turned down the partial amnesty plan, which
would have enabled" the TA to fire

Meeting the Soviet threat in
natural science is the United

the social sciences should not be
overlooked, Prof. Frank Grace of
the political science department
said yesterday.
Speaking at a Michigan Forensic
Forum discussion of "How Will

He said he was not sure social

He urged citizens to "get after"

Notes Questions
Commenting on a tendency to be
concerned solely with the practical
value of subjects, Prof. Grace noted
that questions such as "What can

often asked.
