Foreign Aid
Cut Stopped
By Senate
Heed Pleas To Back
President Eisenhower
WASHINGTON (M) - Heeding
plea§ to back up President Dwight
D. Eisenhower at Geneva, the
Senate yesterday turned down a
move to chop 420 million dollars
from the $3,205,841,750 foreign
aid bill.
The Senate's action in passing
the bill handed the President a
big victory while he was thou-
sands of miles away negotiating
with the Russians at the Geneva
Big Four meeting.
Senators supporting the admin-
istration on the foreign aid issue
used the argument that nothing
should be done that could be in-
terpreted as a slap at the Presi-
dent while he was at Geneva.
Concentrate on Defeat
Senators supporting cuts, led by
Sen. A. J. Ellender (D-La.), con-
centrated their eflorts on defeat-
ing this motion. They argued par-
ticularly that the administration
has on hand 8/2 billion of un-
spent foreign aid funds, and does
not need the full amount it asked
for this year.
Sen. Ellender argued that many
of the recipients of the aid now
are enjoying prosperity and yet
the United States must continue
to go into the red to pay for the
big assistance grants.
But Sen. Carl Hayden (D-
Ariz.), chairman of the Appro-
priations Committee and floor
manager for the bill, called on
his colleagues to support the Pres-
ident, particularly with the Big
Four parley in its concluding
"A Colossal Blunder"
Sen. E. M. Dirksen (R-Ill.),
speaking against the cut, said it
would be a "colossal blunder" for
this country to tell the world it
plans to forsake its friends. Deny-
ing that foreign aid is a give- away
program, Sen. Dirksen shouted
"This is the most selfish program
we have, We're doing it to save
our own skins."
Sen. Harry F. Byrd (D-Va) said
that if Congress can end foreign
aid spending altogether, the gov-
ernment will be able to balance
the budget and cut taxes across
k< the board by 5% per cent.
Board Accepts
Gifts, Grants
Of $669,818
Gifts and grants amounting to
$669,818.53 were accepted by the

grants-in-aid to assist graduate
-, students in the field of Near East-
ern Studies and at the Universi-
ty's Center for Japanese Studies
during the 1955-56 year.
Two Polio Grants
Two grants totaling $85,051
were received from the National
Foundation for Infantile Paraly-
One of $72,787 is for research to
free more polio patients from iron

lungs. The grant will support re-
search and patient care at the
Poliomyelitis Respiratory Center
under the direction of Dr. David
G. Dickinson.
The other grant, for $12,264,
is fir a study of the electrical ac-
tivity of muscles used in breath-
ing. The project is under the di-
rection of Dr. George H. Koepke.

grants from the Rockefeller Foun-
dation of New York. One is for a
sum up to $84,000 additional for

Ike Appeals
To Russians
For Peace
President Urges Free
Exchange of Ideas
GENEVA (P)-Still awaiting a
Soviet reply to his offer to trade
military information, President
Dwight D. Eisenhower appealed to
the Russians yesterday to tear
down the Iron Curtain and per-
mit freer contact between the East
and West.
He took the spotlight again at
the Big Four summit conference.
Elimination of mutual distrust,
increased trade, a free and friend-
ly exchange of ideas and peoples
were envisaged by the President
in the breaking down of barriers.
Conference Nears Close
"By working together toward all
these goals," he said, "we can do
much to transform this century
of recurring conflict into a century
of enduring and invigorating
peace. This, I assure you, the Unit-
ed States of America devoutly de-
sires-as I know all of us do."
With the summit conference
nearing its close, there was still
no inkling of the Russian attitude
toward the dramatic arms propos-
al President Eisenhower laid be-
fore the Russians Thursday-a
proposal hailed by Western com-
mentators variously as "astonish-
ing . . . gratifying . . . grand ..
somewhat bizarre."
Trade Blueprints
The parley will end today, if
the Americans have their way.
That gives the Russians the nal
day on which to say whether they
will agree to trade blueprints of
military plans with America, and
fly their photographic planes over
the United States while American
pilots photograph Russia.
So great was the log jam of busi-
ness that the foreign ministers
wereunable to complete their re-
port on German unification and
The Russians indicated that
Premier Nikolai Buganin was pre-
pared to reply to President Eisen-
hower's arms plan, but not a word
was said from that side during
yesterday afternoon's brief session.
The Stanley Quartet will
give its second concert at 8:30
p.m. Tuesday in Rackham Lec-
ture Hall.
Music to be heard includes
the Mozart Quartet in D Mi-
nor, K. 421, Prof. Ross Lee Fin-
ney's Quartet in A minor, No. 4
and the Brahms' Quartet in B
flat, Op. 67.
The public will be admitted
without charge.

ATOMS FOR PEACE-President Dwight D. Eisenhower questions a guide about- working parts of
an atomic reactor installed in the United Nations' European headquarters at Geneva in prepara-
tion for next month's international atoms for peace conference. The President viewed the exhibit
before going to summit conference of the Big Four in the same area.
Campus Expansion Plans Discussed

Big Issue

The area occupied by the Ann
Arbor High School building is
an integral part in developing the
University campus, University
President Harlan H. Hatcher told
the Regents yesterday.
In a special report to the Re-
gents on his talks with city offi-
cials concerning, the University's
request for the closing of S. Thayer
Street between E. Huron St. and E.
Washington St., President Hatcher
outlined the necessary conditions
for purchasing the building.
"Numerous studies were made to
see if the high school building

l I

could be integrated into the cam-
pus so that the cost of purchasing
and remodeling it would be justi-
fied," PresidentsHatcher said.
Addition Necessary
It was found, President Hatcher
reported, that an addition would
have to be built onto the east side
of the building to "make it a prop-
erty we could justify and integrate
into the campus." This would
necessitate the closing of Thayer
President Hatcher and other
University officials have met with

Alabama Legislature Tries
To Keep School egregation
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (W) - The Alabama Legislature took a bold,
far-reaching step to preserve classroom segregation yesterday by giving
local boards almost unlimited authority to determine where individual
pupils must attend school.

and sent to the governor a school placement measure previously
approved by the House. The roll o

BONN, Germany (P) - The
West German parliament cleared
the way yesterday for a fast start
on the arming of 500,000 German
soldiers in the Atlantic alliance.
In a vote of confidence for
Chancellor Konrad Adenauer and
his pro-Western policies, the Bun-
desrat (upper house) overwhelm-
ingly passed two rearmament

other city officials to attempt "to
reach a settlement of mutual ad-
vantage to both Ann Arbor and the1
University," President Hatcher1
The city has delayed action on
closing Thayer St. because of the
implications in Ann Arbor's al-
ready serious traffic congestion
Suggest Long-Range View
The president said he had pro-
posed to city officials that a long-
range view be taken in which the
University campus becomes more
strictly a campus and lass a part
of the city. He suggested that
the city cannot-continue using the
campus area for through traffic.
President Hatcher advised in-
stead that traffic be routed around
the campus area, either to the east
or to the west.
"Ann Arbor's traffic situationI
needs a major operation," he said.
Future Plans Outlined
City officials wanted to know
the University's future plans for
further development of the cam-
pus area. President Hatcher told
them that additional building in
the campus area would be kept
to an "absolute minimum" as a
matter of University policy, with
the main expansion to take place
on the new North Campus.
"But the University has basic
commitments in the maincampus
area," President Hatcher said.
Some parts of the University are
fixed in the main campus area, he
said, and any improvements in
them must be done in that area.
As examples, he cited the Law
School, the literary college, the
business administration school, the
quadrangles, the Union and Hill

Hagerty Reports
Some Progress
GENEVA (A) - Russia and the
Western Powers deadlocked tightly
last night over the priorities to be
assigned terman unification and
European security in future nego-
tiations to solve those problems.
The deadlock became clear after
foreign ministers of the four pow-
ers had worked through the day
and into the night to try to find
a formula which would satisfy
both the Western and Russian
delegations to the summit confer-
ence. Russia insisted on giving top
priority to European security; the
West solidly backed top assignment
to German unification.
It appeared the whole program
would have to be resolved by Presi-
dent Dwight D. Eisenhower, Pre-
mier Nikolai Bulganin, Prime Min-
ister Anthony Eden and Premier
Edgar Faure when they meet in
private session today.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower,
still awaiting a Soviet reply to his
offer to trade military information,
appealed to the Russians yesterday
to join in removing the Iron Cur-
tain andbother barriers to freer
contact beween te East and
Progress Reported
United States spokesman James
C. Hagerty said following the for-
eign ministers' night meeting that
some progress has been made on
all three problems before the min-
isters-German unification, Euro
pean security and disarmament.
Hagerty added that in his opin-
ion there are still four or five
points' of difference. He did not
specify the differences. He said
the points in controversy would be
presented to the heads of govern-
ment at their meeting this morn-
The task of the foreign ministers,
Hagerty said, has been to identify
the narrow the issues for presenta-
tion to the chiefs of government,.,
and he thinks they have made
progress in doing that already. The
American delegation believes that
such differences are normal and
to be expected at this stage of the
conference, late as it is, he said.
Unification Key
The importance of the differ-
ences seemed to be this: if the
Western powers accepted Russia's
priority for -European security, the
foreign ministers who will conduct
the follow-up negotiation after the
Geneva meeting would be com-
pelled to deal with that problem
But President Eisenhower, Prime
Minister Eden and Premier Faure
have all argued here that the key
to European security is unification
rather than the creation, of an all-
European security system to re-
place the Western alliance, which
Bulganin has been arguing for.
Both British and French delegates
said that, as of last night, the
meeting was deadlocked.
The British spokesman, Sir
George Young, said the deadlock
throws into doubt a proposed
meeting of Big Four foreign minis-
ters tentatively agreed on for next
