NOTRE DAME STUDENTS BAR CHAPEL DOOR - Six followers of an excommunicated former
Catholic priest (dark suits, back to the camera) a re barred from Sacred Heart Church on the campus
of Notre Dame by a group of students. They were escorted from the campus after announcing they
intended to convert students to their beliefs. They said they were followers of Leonard Feeney,
former Jesuit priest, who preached, in opposition to orders from the Pope, that salvation is im-
possible outside the Catholic Church.

Solons Pass
Money Bill
For Defense
Four Measures
Yet on Agenda
toward a weekend adjournment,
Congress stamped its approval yes-
terday on the year's biggest money
bill, which provides more than 34
billion dollars to run the Defense
Department in the fiscal year end-
ing next June 30.
It was the ninth money bill to
go to the White House, leaving
only four appropriations measures
to be ironed out before Congress
can quit for the year.
THE HOUSE has approved all
13 money bills, the Senate 10. One
is before a Senate-House confer-
ence group seeking to straighten
out the difference between meas-
urgs passed by both chambers.
There are other things to be
cleared up, however, before Con-
gress can adjourn, including a
number of bills given a "must"
label by President Eisenhower..
Chief among these are a series
of compromises which must be
worked out on differing versions
of the same bill.
* *~ *
THESE INCLUDE: 1. A bill to
permit more than 200,000 refugees
to enter the United States over
and beyond the regular immigra-
tion quotas established in present
law. President Eisenhower wantedj
the figure to be 240.000. The House
approved 217,000, the Senate 209,-
2. A measure to extend the re-
ciprocal trade authority for a
year. The President asked for an
"as is" extension, which the Sen-
ate approved. The House, how-
ever, voted to increase the Tariff
Commission from six to seven
members, giving the Republicans
a numerical majority.
3. A bill declaring that the fed-
eral government has title to sub-
merged lands extending beyond
the boundaries of the states-3
miles from all except Texas and
the west coast of Florida, ,where
the distance is 101/2 miles.
The defense budget, which stir-
red up a storm of protest when it
was first proposed, was passed
quietly by both houses with no
further attacks on the administra-
tion move chopping five billion
dollars from Air Force funds rec-
ommended by former President
Harry S. Truman.
As it finally cleared Congress,
the defense bill called for $34,371,-
541,000 in new money for the pres-
ent fiscal year.

The bill now goes to a Senate-

Ike WinsVote
On Foreign
Aid in Senate
ite early today passed a $6,745,-
318,202 foreign aid bill after Eis-
enhower leaders turned back re-
peated attempts to slice the total.
The niove gave President Eisen-
hower a major win in the foreign
aid fight as it refused to slash
548 million dollars out of the pro-
gram designed to bolster foreign
* nations against communism.
The $6,745,318,202 was still some
half billion dollars less than Eis-
enhower originally requested but
about half a billion more than the
House voted.

ARRESTS, confiscations, radio

All over the Soviet zone, the
food rush snowballed. Every East
German returning to a home town
in the provinces with arms loaded:
with Western fats, flour and other
rare treasures was a signal for
more to set out for Berlin.
RED POLICE arrested scores of
food-laden East Germans in the

some were freed later. The police

were prepared to fly.

ONLY ABOUT 1,000 third-year
college men in special categories-
engineers was the only example
cited-will be commissioned next

The Air Force is working un-

limited need for ground officers.
Nevertheless it plans to take in

Future Depends
On Union Talks
TOLEDO - R) - Edgar F. Kai-
ser, president of Kaiser Motors
Corp., told newsmen yesterday that
the future of Willow Run depends
largely upon the working out of
satisfactory union contracts.
He said the present contracts did
not at all fit the volume of oper-
ations at the big former bomber
plant and that it will not be re-
opened for large-scale operations
until contract dajustments have
been made with the CIO United
Auto Workers.
KAISER added, "negotiations
currently are under way with the
union and they have been pro-
gressing favorably."

ful the reopening could be made
within 30 days.
The big problem in these con-
tract differences, Kaiser said, was
mainly one of job classifications.
He said Willow Run is ideally
laid out for manufacturing oper-
ations and "we hope they can be
resumed there."

3-omC Books

An average book publisher faces
two alternatives in business; eith-
er to issue books to satisfy public
taste (as shown by sales figures),
or to be of maximum benefit to
the public, Freeman Lewis ex-
plained yesterday.
Speaking at the ninth lecture
on "Popular Arts in America,"
Lewis, executive vice-president of
Pocket Books, Inc., pointed out
"publishers all believe in the sec-
ond method, but qualify it with
'whenever possible.,'"
* * *
HE SAID no matter which
school of thought they belong to,
chances are their decisions are
wrong in the unpredictable pub-
lishing business.
"Public taste can no more be
measured by sales figures of
best-sellers than baseball by
home runs," the publishing ex-
ecutive said.
Lewis cited the increase in pro-
portion of non-fiction over fiction
in the paper-bound book industry
as the business grows older.
'SIN-TIME," he predicted, "non-
fiction will be the biggest seller."
Currently, fiction holds down
82 per cent of the list of best-
There is an enormously-wide
variation in the literary merit of
best-sellers he explained.
i; *
"IN FICTION,, what the public
seems to like best is sex, prefer-

tration on violence or poverty, he
AS REASON for this variation,
the publisher pointed out "Books
are not corseted by regulations
and as a result, other media can't
show realism without limiting the
scope and honesty."
Paper-bound book audiences are
not easily influenced by keeping
up with the Jones, he explained.
They take all in their stride, ex-
cept artiness, he noted, "but the
common denominator is a good
story teller."

Police Deny Book Ban Order Issued

Conflicting statements, accusa-
tions and denials on the banning
of "obscene" literature came to
light again recently.
A local pocket book distributor
produced a list of books with the
heading "the following list of
books have been banned by the
Ann Arbor Police Department. Re-
move these books from your stand
The distributor said he was
given the list by the Ann Arbor
LIEUTENANT George Stauch,
conntactedin t+e istornivP hiira

Asked if he has read all 47 of the
books on the list produced by the
distributor, the lieutenant said
"some of the books included on
his list had been taken from the
Detroit list, but not all."
(A comparison of both lists re-
vealed that every book on the Ann
Arbor notice is represented on the
Detroit list.)
LIEUTENANT Stauch refused to
issue a copy of his list saying he
thought publication of the list
would bring a demand for the cen-
sored books.
Each dealer is warned person-
ally. the lieutenant said There

their authority in issuing the no-
tice to distributors," he declared.
"The list serves to indicate to
distributors that certain litera-
ture they carry might not be
free" from liability of prosecu-
tion, Devine noted.
The County prosecutor cited no
recent cases concerning the sell-
ing of "obscene" books by distri-
butors, but said there had been
some involving private individuals.



DEVINE explained that the De-
troit bureau issues lists of banned
books every 48 hours and that the
Ann Arbor notice is "out-of-date
and incomnlote "
