Professors Add
New Statements
Paton, Sutherland Supply Answer
To Faculty Senate Report Protest
Two new statements were added yesterday to the campus disagree-
ment over the responsibilities and rights of the faculty.
Prof. William A. Paton of the business administration school
contributed an answer to the criticism of the statement he and four
other faculty members made protesting the Report of the Senate
Committee on the Responsibilities of the Faculty to Society.
Prof. Gordon A. Sutherland of the music school, a member of
the Committee, sent The Daily a seven-point reply to the statement
by Prof. Paton, Prof. Edwin N. Goddard, Dr. Frederick A. Coller, Prof.
Earnest Boyce and Prof. Earl C. O'Roke.
Both Prof. Paton's and Prof. Sutherland's statements appear on
The Daily's editorial page today.

In answer to criticism of the stand taken by the five professors

Eisenhower P







U.S. Reveals
"WASHINGTON (A')-The State
Department lifted the secrecy lid
yesterday on a long-simmering ar-
gument with Yugoslavia over the
right of American military inspec-
tors there to check on the use of
military aid shipments.
This backstage dispute, accom-
panied by hints from Belgrade
that Yugoslavia might want to
manuf acture R u s si a n-designed
MIG fighters to bolster its air
force, has caused a review of the
Eisenhower Administration's com-
bined military-economic aid pro-
gram to Marshal Tito's govern-
The State Department, in dis-
closing the controversy, maintain-
ed it has not yet reached a point
where the United States is con-
sidering a 'halt in all aid to Yugo-
Nearly A BillionsDollars
Nearly a billion dollars worth of
such aid has been expended since
President Tito broke with the
Communist bloc in June 1948.
More than half of this was in jet
airplanes, tanks, artillery, guns,
ammunition,transport andccom-
munications equipment.
A State Department spokesman
told a news conference, "There are
at present certain questions about
the interpretation of our agree-
ment with Yugoslavia which we
are endeavoring to work out to
our mutual satisfaction."
The spokesman, press officer
.Joseph Reap, said there was "every
confidence a satisfactory arrange-
ment will be reached."
Refusal To Allow Checks
The nub of the controversy is
the refusal of Yugoslavia to permit
a United States military aid mis-
sion to make the normalchecks on
the use of American equipment
which all countries receiving
United States aid have pledged to
Adding to the concern of Amein-
cankofficials, it was learned, is
pressure from Yugoslavia for new
aid to permit the Yugoslavs to
build modern jet fighters in their
own factories.
Yugoslav officials have indicat-
ed, obviously in a move to spur
American officials into providing
such help, that Russia would be
willing to permit manufacture of
its MIG fighter in Yugoslavia if

responsibilities of "candor," Prof.
Paton complains of "the intem-
perance and intolerance that is so
frequently encountered by anyone
who can't see eye to eye - 100
per cent - with the campus liber-
als.' "
The initial report, rejected by
the Faculty Senate in a mail vote,
attempted to set down standards
for faculty members and a univer-
sity, maintaining that the univer-
sity "must assume innocence until
guilt is proven" when a surrender-
ing of rights is involved.
The Goddard statement, origin-
ally presented at the May 23 Sen-
ate meeting and printed in The
Daily July f4, objected to the Haw-
ley report, saying, "It seems to us
intolerable that any man, under
the delusions of academic freedom
or otherwise, should put his per-
sonal rights above the welfare of
the University."
Many-Sided Issue
Further statements followed
with the issue apparently many-
sided. Prof. Paton says, "From
such data as are available the two
groups appear to be of about equal
strength, numerically, but even a
split of this character is not nec-
essarily something to be deplored."
Prof. Sutherland picked seven
specific points of disagreement
with the Goddard statement. A-
mong them was its criticism of the
Hawley report for not discussing
issues he feels it should have dis-
CBncerning this, Prof. Suther-
land says, "The report deals not
with the issues Messrs. Boyce, Col-
ler, Goddard, O'Roke and Paton
concluded in May it should have
dealth with, but with the issues
that it was instructed the previous
October to deal with."

Talbott Set
To Sacrifice
.his Firm
Will Leave Business
If Senators Demand
WASHINGTON (P) - Secretary
of the Air Force Harold Talbott
offered yesterday to give up his
outside business interests, if in-
vestigating senators think that
would help the Air Force.
Talbott testified in a hearing,
public at his request, after reports
appeared that he sent out letters
from the Pentagon drumming up
business for his industrial engi-
neering firm.
He vigorously defended the pro-
priety of his actions as a partner
in Paul B. Mulligan & Co., of New
York, but said he would get out of
the firm Aug. 1 "if you believe it
to the advantage of our United
States Air Force."
Talbott appeared before the
Senate Investigations subcom-
mittee in ahearing calledafter
the New York Times had printed
photographs of texts of letters
from Talbott to businessmen.
Analyzes Clerical Costs
The Mulligan firm does analysis
of clerical costs, for a fee. The
Times said that among the firms
which granted Mulligan a contract
was Avco Manufacturing Co., of
New York, which is a big defense
Other firms the paper listed as
having hired Mulligan since Tal-
bott became secretary included
Baldwin-L i m a-Hamilton Corp.,
Olin Industries, the Greyhound
Corp. and Libbey-Owens-Ford
Glass Co., Toledo. In every in-
stance, the Times said, the files
showed that Talbott wrote the
company with a request for an
appointment for Mulligan or his
Sen. McClellan (D-Ark.), chair-
man of the Senate subcommittee,
denied the publication had any-
thing to do with calling yesterday
afternoon's hearing, though there
had been no sign of any such quick
public session until the Times dis-
closures came out.
Asked for Hearing
Talbott yesterday morning asked
for a public hearing "as soon as
possible, so that the public may
have a complete understanding
and the accurate information
about this matter."
Talbott told the senators, when
he took the stand, that it is "a
shocking thing to point a finger
of suspicion at a man who doesn't
deserve it. I don't think I deserve
Talbott said that since going to
the Pentagon he has had contacts
with and has written to, officials
of some of Mulligan's big clients,
but that there was nothing im-
proper about it.
With reference to the Times,
Talbott said:
"It was ourageous to have that
type of publicity."
The secretary told the subcom-
mittee that even before he went
before the Senate Armed Services
Committee in January, 1953, for
hearings on his nomination to the
Pentagon post, he had arranged
"as a precaution" for a "special
or limited partnership" in the Mul-
ligan company.
He said he broke off all his other
business ties, and arranged in an
agreement signed by himseI and
his partner that he should receive
no share of profits from any of
its contracts with firms whose
operations were "predominantly"
in the area of defense work.

Testimony Refused
Adams, the President's right hand
man, refused yesterday to testify
in the Dixon-Yates probe and a
Senate subcommittee promptly
blasted his attitude as "tanta-

of possible crime and corruption."
One reason given by Adams for
steering clear of the inquiry was
'my official and confidential re-
lationship" to President Dwight
D. Eisenhower.

Ike's Proposal Approved
By-, Democratic .Leaders
WASHINGTON (P)-President Dwight D. Eisenhower's dramatic
proposal for an exchange of military blueprints with Russia was made
at the Geneva Big Four meeting yesterday with the advance knowledge
and approval of Democratic leaders in the United States Senate.
This became obvious from the alacrity with which they publicly
endorsed the plan and it was confirmed when Sen. Walter George
(D-Ga.), chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, said he
had been informed earlier yesterday that the President would make
such an offer.

"We certainly have nothing

by the wide margin of about $1,-
472,000,000 in six months, an
analysis of the fiscal 1955 budget
figures disclosed yesterday.
In his January budget message
to Congress, President Dwight D.
Eisenhower transmitted the esti-
mate that the miltary establish-
ment would have spent $34,375,-
000,000 on military functions by
the fiscal year-end on June 30.
The Treasury and the Budget

Russian Asks
Who Conttols
Iowa College
AMES, Iowa (A') - "Who con-
trols this college from Washing-
ton?" asked Soviet farm chieftain
Valdimir Matskevich yesterday.
He was putting the question to
Dr. Floyd Andre, dean of agri-
culture of Iowa State College, who
had been giving a lecture to the
visiting Soviet farm group on the
college's organization and work.
"Nobody!" was Andre's answer.
Andre went on, of course, to ex-
plain that, insofar as United States
federal government funds were
spent at Iowa State College, Wash-
ington would inspect to be sure
they were used for the purposes
and in the way intended.

GENEVA (P)-President Dwight D. Eisenhower offered yesterday
to pin-point American military establishments and let them come un-

George commented. "This is man-

Ike Promised Information
Eisenhower, who had promised
to keep Congress leaders closely
advised of developments at Gene-
va, proposed that Russia and the
United States follow up their ex-
change of (military blueprints with
ample facilities for aerial recon-
naissance of each other's territory.
While generally applauding the
idea, most Congress leaders were
none too optimistic about its ac-
ceptance by the Russians.
Several members stressed the
point, implied by George's "fish-
bowl" allusion, that the Soviets
already know much more about
this country's military installa-
tions, both at home and abroad,
than we know about theirs.
See Few Bargaining Opportunities
For that reason, some felt Eisen-
hower's proposal offered few bar-
gaining possibilities. But its poten-
tial impact on world opinion was
viewed as profound.
Among the first to hail the pro-
posal was Democratic Senate Lead-
er Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas,
who has been recovering in Beth-
esda Naval Hospital from a heart
attack suffered on July 2.
Sen. William Knowland of Cali-
fornia, the Republican leader, read
the Eisenhower proposal with ob-
vious interest but reserved com-
ment until after the President has
returned and reported to the coun-
try on the Geneva talks.
The, Democratic leader of the
House, Rep. McCormack of Mas-
sachusetts, called the proposal
"spectacular" and said its rejection
by the Soviets would amount to an
exposure of "insincerity" on their
House Speaker Rayburn of Tex-
as commented: "This is a great ex-
periment if it will or can work."

As Heat Wave Emerges
Another heat wave established itself in the Ann Arbor area
yesterday, with temperatures expected to reach a high of 90 to 96
degrees this afternoon.
Ann Arborites took to the beaches and recreational areas in an
effort to escape from yesterday's mid-nineties temperatures. Residents
who owned air-conditioning units often found that these were of
little effect.

Swing Your Partners

Talkedto wori
While the President addressed
Russia, it was clearly evident that
he directed this statement to the
whole world to convince doubting
peoples of the United States' de-
sire to avoid war.
First, he allowed the text of his
declaration to be used openly by
correspondents. Second,. newsreel
and television cameramen had
been alerted in advance to be on
hand where the core of the Pre-
sident's statement was to be read
by Hagerty in the glare of lights
at a news conference.
It was the major move of the
day, and perhaps the most grip-
ping move of the conference,
which is drawing rapidly toward
a close. President Eisenhower in-
sists he must be home Sunday.
That leaves at most only two
more days for the leaders of the
Big Four nations to adopt mutual-
ly, if they can, some program
leading toward a relaxation of
world tensions.
