Union Prefers Own Proposal,
To Study Other Sincere Plans

MOSCOW OP)-Premier Nikolai Bulganin made a surprise second
earance yesterday before the Supreme Soviet Parliament to assure
Russian people and the world Moscow still is considering President
ight D. Eisenhower's proposal for mutual aerial inspection of
imary establishments.
Bulganin said he was misunderstood Thursday when his remarks
e taken as a rejection of the American proposal.
Naturally, Bulganin said, the Soviet Union prefers its own
armament proposals, but it would not refuse to consider other
ere plans, and still is studying the President's.

the white-bearded Premier said,
as the deputies cheered. Thurs-
day the deputies burst into laugh-
ter when Bulganin said there was
plenty of room in both countries
to hide things from planes.
Follows News Conference
This unscheduled second ap-
pearance came after President
Eisenhower told his news confer-
ence In Washington Thursday he
did not feel the Soviet Union had
finally slammed the door to agree-
ment on disarmament.
The President said the United
States would consider Soviet pro-
posals sympathetically in a search
for a formula fair to both.
The Eisenhower proposal at the
Geneva summit conference called
for an exchange of military blue
prints of both countries as a step
toward the mutual trust needed to
pave the way for disarmament.
First Reply Thursday
The Russians made no public
reply to this proposal until Thurs-
day. Bulganin told his Parliament
that through he paid tribute to
the implied desire to contribute
to the solution of the complicated
disarmament problem, there could
be no considerable effect from it,
since both countries had areas
vast enough to hide anything.
The Soviet proposals advanced
May 10 on the disarmament ques-
tion, Bulganin said, were more
realistic.
Moscow's proposals called for
withjlrawal of foreign forces from
Germany, prohibition of nuclear
weapons and a system of controls
against violations at key ports and
transport centers.
Bulganin's speech wound up a
two-day session of the Supreme
Soviet called to hear a report on
the Geneva conference. The dep-
uties, all outstanding figures in
their home communities, now will
spread the new official govern-
ment line on world affairs, which
sounded a good deal different from
the line promulgated in February

Officials Say Ike's Administration
To Re-explore Iron Curtain Trade
WASHINGTON (AP)-Now that world tensions are easing, the
United States may try to sell some of its huge farm surpluses to
Russia and satellites, officials said yesterday.
Government farm officials said they expect tle Eisenhower ad-
ministration to re-explore soon the feasibility of a resumption of trade
with Iron Curtain countries.
The administration has been reluctant to do this largely because
of a belief that American consumers would disapprove sales of the

The building, which will provide
a new home for the University
Press, is expected to be completed
sometime around the first of the
year by the DeKoning Construc-
tion Company of Ann Arbor, at a
most of $119,000.
Part of the excavation has been
finished and forms have been
made for pouring parts of the
foundations.

Senator Calls
Ike Economic
Tool of Aides
AP Special Washington Service
WASHINGTON (AP)-Sen. Pat-
rick V. McNamara (D-Mich.) said
yesterday President Dwight D.
Eisenhower is an "economic inno-
cent" in the hands of Secretary
of the Treasurer Tumphrey and
Joseph M. Dodge, Special Assistant
to the President on foreign eco-
nomic policy.
"These two men," McNamara
said, "dictate the money policy of
the country and with active co-
operation of the unchecked Fed-
eral Open Market Committee they
are saddling new burdens of usury
on the millions of people who must
borrow money."
McNamara made his assertion
in a statement charging the
Eisenhower Administration is us-
ing the current national prosperity
as a "bankers' raid" on the econ-
omy.

farm products at prices below
those prevailing in this country.
These lower prices would, of
course, be necessary under world
competitive conditions.
Speech Led to Prediction
A development which led the
officials to predict early reviews
of the trade problem was a speech
made at East Lansing, Mich.
Thursday night by President Char-
les B. Shuman of the powerful
AmericanFarm Bureau Federa-
tion.
Advocating a resumption of
trade relations with the Russians,
he said this would contribute to
world peacesand would be a major
step in expanding markets for
United States products.
Other developments which were
said to be exerting an influence
toward trade reopening included:
Canada's Action
1. Recent action of Canada, an
ally of this country, in selling sur-
plus butter and grain to Iron Cur-
tain countries.
2. Easing of tensions between
East and West as a result of the
recent Geneva conference and the
exchange visist of American and
Russian farmers.
A third factor influencing gov-
ernment thinking is the desire of
the administration to find new
outlets for the mounting farm
surpluses. Russia, because of lag-
ging agricultural production at
home, is known to be in the mar-
ket for grain, butter and food fats
- items in this country's surplus.
Benson To Visit Europe
In this connection, Secretary of
Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson an-
nounced yesterday that he will go
to Europe this fall to confer with
United Nations representatives
there and with foreign govern-
ments on disposing of farm sur-
pluses.
Benson's visit will take him to
England, the Netherlands, Den-
mark, France, Italy and Switzer-
land.
The department announced that
its export of wheat under the inter-
national wheat agreement for the
marketing year ended Aug. 1 fell
about 56 million bushels short of
its quota of 195 million bushels.
Other exporting countries also
failed to fill their quotas. Good
crops in importing areas held
down the international movement
of the grain.

Freed U.S. Airmen Arrive
In Tokyo on Journey Home
TOKYO ()-Eleven United States airmen arrived last night on
their way home to loved ones after 32 months of imprisonment in
Red China - one bearing the leaked-out secret that his wife married
another man because she thought he was dead.
Airman 2/c Daniel C. Schmidt, 22, of Redding, Calif., chanced to
hear on a broadcast in the Philippines of what the Air Force was
still reluctant to tell him, because of possible shock coming after
his ordeal.
He appeared relaxed and smiled with the other ten for camera-

men at Tachikawa Air Base after
Dixon-Yates,
Ike Backed
WASHINGTON {41) -- R ep.
Charles A. Halleck (R-Ind) said
iesterday public power advocates
are making "a desperate attempt"
;o use the Dixon-Yates controver-
>y to discredit President Dwight
D. Eisenhower but that "the at-
tempt is doomed to failure."
Rep. Halleck, in a statement
prepared for the Congressional
Record, said, "The Dixon-Yates
contract was a good one, honestly
arrived at, which would have ben-
efited the government, the people
:f the Tennessee Valley and the
taxpayers of the whole country."
Balloon Launched
By 'U' Engineers
A radar test balloon was laun-
ched by the University's Engineer-
ing Research Institute yesterday
near Hamburg and is expected to
descend somewhere near Oak
Park.
The metal-foil covered balloon
is about six feet in diameter, ac-
cording to engineers at the Insti-
tute. It was followed by a light
plane and radar.

they arrived from Manila in two
C-54 transports, one of them the
famed Bataan, former personal
plane of Gen. Douglas MasArthur.
Hoped to Phone Wife
Schmidt hoped to talk by tele-
phone today to hs wife, Una, in
California. She was reported to be
weighing the idea of leaving both
him and her No. 2 husband, Alford
Fine, a logging tractor driver, so
that both of them might court her
to a decision.
She is the mother of Schmidt's
2%-year-old son, Daniel, whom the
airman has never seen.
After the airport reception, the
11 were taken to the base hospital
for complete physical checkups.
Official word here on their stay
in Tokyo was that it would be "for
several days."
To Leave Japan Wednesday
In Washington; Air Force head-
quarters said the 11 would fly out
of Japan on Wednesday, Japan
time, and arrive about 30 hours
later at Travis Air Force Base
north of San Francisco.
The Air Force said families of
the fliers would be reunited with
them at Travis.
The fliers, who left Red China
Thursday, have denied Commun-
ist charges that their B-29 was
shot downi over Manchuria Jan. 12,
1953, and that they were "spies."
They said their plane was shotI
down 35 miles south of the Man-1
churian border in North Korea
while on a routine leaflet-dropping
mission.

Mother's Old
Communist
Ties Cause
To Try Again
For Commission
KINGS POINT, N. Y. (/P)-A 21-
year-old midshipman was gradu-
ated yesterday with second high-.
est honors in his class at the
United States Merchant Marine
Academy.
But he was denied a naval re-
serve commission because his
mother once was a Communist.
"I wish they'd punish me in-
stead, of him," the mother said.
Cadet Eugene Landy, a hand-
some athlete and would-be law-
yer, stood with the rest of his
class in dress white uniform as the
ensign's oath was administered.
But his hand was not raised. He
took no oath.
Will Reapply
He has a six-months period dur-
ing which he may reapply for the
commission. He said he would do
so.
Landy's own loyalty was not
questioned. The Navy merely said
he was "extremely close to his
motherand she has been a Com-
munist."
The mother, Mrs. Deborah Lan-
dy, 54, of Bradley Beach, N. J..
said her son talked her into quit-
ting the party about 1947 after
she had been a member for .10
years. She added:
Gave Her Ultimatum
"He sort of gave me an ultima-
tum that I quit or he would leave
home. He reformed me and yet
he is suffering for it. I'd rather
go to jail than have him suffer."
Young Landy expressed fear his
career in admiralty law might be
endangered. Without the com-
mission that merchant marine
graduates normally receive, he will
be liable for the draft. He intends .
to enter Yale University on a
scholarship this fall to study law.
In Landy's class of 96 cadets;
only two other graduates were de-
nied commissions. Both flunked
physical examinations.
One of Best Students
An academy spokesman called
Landy "one of the brightest stu-
dents we have ever had." He also
was a football and tennis star.
Landy called his own political
views "pretty conservative."
After the administration of the
oath, Landy marched to an out-
doors platform to receive his
scholastic honors, his degree and
his license as a merchant marine
officer - all the academy had the
power to bestow on him.

Canadian Cold Front To Bring
Heat Relief to City's Populace
The heat wave is over at last in Ann Arbor - at least for a
while.
A cold front is set to arrive in town today, bringing temperatures
down to the mid 80's - not necessarily the coolest, but still consider-
ably less than this week's mid-90's temperatures.
The exact duration of the colder weather is uncertain, although
Willow Run Weather Station reports it may last through tomorrow.
Showers No Help
Yesterday's weather, which whizzed up to a sizzling 95, was not
alleviated by afternoon showers. Ann Arbor residents are expected
to welcome the lower temperatures happily.
The mass of cooler air has spread down from Canada and
