an amendment by Lois Wurster,
IFC President Rob Trost, '58,
objected to the motion on the
ground it did not specify what in-
formation the committee would be
seeking. Ron Gregg, '60, co-spon-
sor of the motion, suggested that
the committee could study
changes in the bias clauses over
the past five years, as well as
progress in changing attitudes
through education.
A motion concerning the edu-
cational value of final examina-
tions asking that they be gener-
ally available to students, was re-
ferred to the Education and So-
cial Welfare Committee, which
will discuss the matter before next
week's meeting.

I ighway,
costs Rise




WASHINGTON R) - Theesti-
mated cost of -the nation's 41,000-
mile superhighway program has
jump5ed 10 billion dollars, Con-
gress was told yesterday.
This could mean an eventual in-
crease in highway user taxes or a
delay in completing the program.
In making the report to Con-
gress, Secretary of Commerce Sin-
clair Weeks said he is not propos-
ing any tax changes'at this time.
Neither did he call for taking
more time' to carry out the vast
" expressway plan.
Instead, Weeks suggested these
matters can wait a few years un-
til more miles of new roads are
built and cost estimates based- on
greater experience become more
Weeks said the cost of the in-
terstate road network is now esti-
mated at 37/2 billion dollars and
indicated the figure may go high-
er. This compares with an esti-
mate of 272 billion when Con-
gress set up the program 19
months ago.
The original plan was to build
the roads in 13 years, with the
federal government paying 90 per
cent of the cost.

Teetor Calls
For TaxmCut
To Halt Dip,
WASHINGTON ') - A former
administration official told Con-
gress yesterday that confiscatory
federal taxes are a major cause of
the present economicf slump..
He called for an immediate tax
cut to check any further business
Lothair Teetor, assistant secre-
tary of commerce for domestic af-
fairs from 1953 to 1955, said Con-
gress should not wait too long be-
fore tax reform is decided upon
and put into effect.
"There is grave danger we will
wait until a recession gets deep
to do something about it," he de-
Teetor, now an Indiana busi-
nessman, testified as spokesman
for the Indiana State Chamber of
Commerce before the House Ways
and Means Committee which is
studying possible tax law revision.
He contended federal income
and death taxes are leading a
drift into socialism by drying up
sources of business and risk capi-
"We are economically strong to-
day, but there are unmistakable
signs of weakness in our country
that must be recognized and dealt
with before the weakness becomes
a deep-seated disorder," he said.
"First of all, we think there
should be an immediate and sub-
stantial reduction in the highly
progressive income tax rates as a
move to check the recession and
restore business confidence."
Neither the administration nor
congressional leaders favor tax
reduction at this time. New de-
fense spending and the prospect
of a possible budget deficit this
year have all but canceled out tax
cutting plans.

game. Hudson also drew a 10 min-

Michigan State dominated the
action from the start, but because
of the outstanding play of Michi-

able to score until 16 minutes of
play had gone by.

Calgary, Alberta, scrambled for a
loose puck in front of the Michi-

Russian Summit Talks
Pointless Says ulles
WASHINGTON (M-)-Secretary of State John Foster Dulles told
congressmen emphatically yesterday there is no point now in holding
new summit talks with the Russians.
Both Democratic ahd Republican members of the House Foreign
Affairs Committee seemed to agree with Dulles on this point after a
three-hour secretbriefing, which also touched on most other major
internationial issues.
Committee members gave reporters a partial fill-in on the testi-
mony. It was apparently a harmonious meeting. Dulles will appear

a State of the Union message that

at 12:30 p.m. today.
In delivering his message, Eisen-
hower Will speak for perhaps 45
minutes. His address will be tele-

as some crlitics picture it, and that
all needed steps will be taken to
win the race with the Soviets.
It has already been established
that President Eisenhower plans
to ask for around 40 billn dollars
to spend on defense next year.
This compares with 38 billion
budgeted for this year, which now
stands to be increased to .39%
- Nixon Speaks
Vice-President Richard M.Nixon
provided what could well be a tip
that President Eisenhower will take
a reassuring position when he
speaks of what must be done.
Nixon said in a speech at Phila-
delphia that it makes no sense to
say that America is weaker than
Russia, that the Strategic Air
Force is obsolete, or that this
country's scientists are inferior.
He said that a smug and over-
confident America could fallsbe-
hind Russia, and then added: "But
I can assure the American people
that under the leadership of Pres-
ident Eisenhower we are not going
.o let that happen."

The Pentagon official said he
had tried once more to get the
general to change his mind, even
after Gavin had informed the
Senate Preparedness subcommittee
today that his decision to retire
was final.
Gavin had announced last week-
end that he planned to retire be-
cause he was in basic disagree-
ment with several Defense De-
partment policies.
He told the Senate subcommittee
yesterday the Army's position is
deteriorating rapidly and "I can't
get anything done" about it.

Kinkead, an editor and a writer for "The New Yorker," arrived
in Ann Arbor yesterday to speak on "brainwashing" of the American
prisoners of war by the Chinese in the Korean War in connection with
an article he wrote for the Oct. 26, 1957 issue of "The New Yorker."
He will speak at 8:30 p.m. today in Aud. B, Angell Hall. The
editor will also participate in a panel discussion on the same topic
at 4:15 p.m. tomorrow in Aud. B, Angell Hall as part of the Psychol-
ogy Colloquium series. Both are open to the public.
Although not a professional psychologist, Kinkead said he was
interested in why 21 American prisoners defected to the Communists,
and felt the matter should be investigated. He approached the Army
and asked for full cooperation. Kinkead received this cooperation
after a wait of one year, and it took him another year to gather all
his information.
