JERUSALEM - T he Israeli
Parliament approved early today
A a new coalition Cabinet headed by
Premier Moshe Sharett A 6-32
vote of confidence ended the 24-
hour crisis touched off by a break
ir. the old coalition government.
With its- resignation, Sharett in
effect cracked down on the Gen-
eral Zionist party for refusing to
support him on votes of confi-
dence in Parliament.
The new Cabinet excludes the
General Zionists and redistributes
t ministries they held. It com-
prises nine members of Sharett's
Mapai Labor party, two from the
Religious Orthodox Workers party

sive party.
President Izhak Ben-Zvi asked
Sharett to form a new govern-
ment following the resignation of
the previous Cabinet.

the "command of repression" has

Dykstra Uses
Hypo' as Aid
In Instruction
"In the process of turning out
V:capable students, I use a teach-
ing device in my classes that I
call 'hypos'," Gerold . Dykstra,
professor of business law com-
mented yesterday.
Dykstra, guest speaker at the
Speech Department Assemby, ex-
plained that "hyper" was not a
medical term, but rather a hypo-
thetical situation used to illustrate
bare legal facts."
"A 'hypo' given in class fastens

itself more securely in the stu-
dent's mind than merely reading
atextbook," Dykstra contended.
The professor pointed out to
his large audience legal princi-
ples, such as silence is not accept-
ed by law, time is of the essence
and offers must be communicated
by means of 'hypos.'

work,' but it's a living," Dykstra
quipped. "Actually, I love it. I
make some up, while others come
from the actual teaching exper-

lief that "no courses are as re-

Writer Talks
On Folidore

-Courtesy University News Service
"The American artist will pro-
duce freely and creatively only
if his imagination is allowed full
flight," novelist Carl Carmer told
an Angell Hall auditorium audi-
ence yesterday at the Michigan
Writers Conference.
Carmer, author of "Stars Fell
on Alabama," discussed "The
American Fancy." He was orig-
inally billed to talk on "The Amer.
ican Spirit-Michigan Brand."
Folklore and Humor
Carmer traced the origins of
American folklore and humor
reaching back to the colorful wit-
icisms of the frontiersmen and
mountain-folk, who, he said, "ex-
pressed what they saw, not in
disciplined meter, but poetically
He quoted George Moore as say-
ing, "Art begins in the irrespon-
sible imaginings of the people."
Explaining the Davy Crockett
phenomena, the novelist com-
mented, "America is more in love
with itself than ever before and
is trying to discover its cultural
roots." The fancy of the fron-
tiersman is still with us, he added.
Howarth, Muehl To Participate
At today's luncheon session of
the Conference Herbert Howarth,
Director of the National Book
League in England, will speak on
"The Writer in England Today."
Following the luncheon, Prof.
John F. Muehl, of the University.
English Department will hold in-
dividual manuscript conferences
with writers who have submitted
works at 3:30 p.m. in the Hop-
wood Room.
Also of interest to the visiting
authors is the special exhibit of
Michigan writers and Michigan
books in the lobby of the General

quarters, especially after Big Steel
hinted at a fresh offer. Soffe in-
dustry sources, however, remained
McDonald has said there still
is time for a. settlement.
U.S. Steel's hint of a new offer
came from John A. Stephens, a
vice president and the firm's top
Give and Take
Stephens said at a news con-
ference that a peaceful settlement
can be arrived at "if both sides
work hard enough and both give."
This was interpreted in some
quarters as meaning U.S. Steel
wouldcome up with a new offer
before Thursday's deadline.
No Contract, No Work
McDonald said the union is
ready anytime to negotiate for
600,000 of its members.
He added: "No contract, no
work." %
In his blast at Hood, McDonald
said that the Big Steel president
"has falsely charged the union is
forcing an unnecessary strike on
the nation.
Ten Cents 'Not Substantial
U.S. Steel, which usually sets the
pattern for settlements with oth-
er firms, has offered the union an
average wage increase of 10 cents
an hour. ,
Five other firms made similar
offers. The. union has rejected
them, saying it wants a "substan-
tial" raise." McDonald said "sub-
stantial" is "considerably above
10 ments."
Midnight Is Deadline
Workers in the basic steel in-
dustry now earn an average of
$2.33 an hour.
The big union will be free to
strike at midnight Thursday if a
settlement is not made by that
Plants Prepare for Walkout
In getting ready for the threat-
ened walkout, U.S. Steel and the
Bethlehem Steel Corp. began
banking blast furnaces. Inland
Steel began closing its Indiana
Harbor, Ind., mill Tuesday night.
The closing of a steel mill is a
slow operation that requires a
gradual drop in the temperatures

Warning Given
To Veterans
Two important warnings for vet-
erans and dependents of deceased
veterans who receive monthly
checks from the Veterans Admin-
istration have been released by the
Detroit VA Regional Office.
First, if a veteran or a depend-
ent of a deceased veteran changes
his address, he should promptly
notify the VA office that handles
his records, giving both the old and
new address..
Second, if a monthly check is
lost or not delivered, he should no-
tify the VA at once.
In writing to the VA, veterans
and dependents should identify
themselves thoroughly.
"The best way to do this," a VA
official said, "is for the veteran to
give his VA 'C' number, the num-
ber VA assignes to the claim, and
a dependent to give his 'XC' num-

We Meets
With Press
Calls for More
Help by Congress
WASHINGTON () - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower said yes-
terday the Democratic-controlled
Congress hasn't passed enough of
his program and "now' I want
some more."
He smiled when he said it, but
he was emphatic.
Answers Democrats
Eisenhower made his call for
more action in his first news con-
ference in three weeks.
It was a reply to Democratic
contentions that accomplishments
to date disprove a 1954 Eisenhow-
er prediction that political "cold
war" would follow if Democrats
won Congress.
Covers Varied Matters
Eisenhower covered a variety of
foreign and domestic matters.
He told the reporters, "I am
not trying to expect too much"
from the Big Four conference at
Geneva next month. But, he said,
he believes the chances of finding
some ways to relieve fears and
tensions are "better than I
thought they were two months
Red Attitude Encouraging
Eisenhower also said he believed
the shooting down of an American
plane by the Russians in the Ber-
ing Sea last week "was a local
occurrence and not something that
was directed as a matter of poli-
cy." He also called it encouraging
that the Russians have taken a
"different attitude" on this inci-
dent. They have offered to pay
half the damages.
Backs Highway Program
The President said with some
warmth that he stands behind his
program for a 10-year highway
construction program, to be fi-
nanced in part by a bond issue,
"just as strongly as I was when
it was organized."
He sharply disagreed that his
plan for an atomic-powered,exhib-
it ship to tour the world would be
a waste of money. That was an
argument used by Democrats
Tuesday in the Senate when they
defeated his proposal 42-41.
Exasperated Over 'Peace Ship'
Eisenhower seemed a little ex-
asperated about what has hap-
pened to his "peace ship" and his
highway program.
However, he mixed a little hu-
mor with gravity when asked
about the statement Tuesday of
Sen. Lyndon Johnson of Texas,
the Senate Democratic leader,
that last year's Eisenhower pre-
diction of a Congress-White House
cold war has not panned out,
List of Legislation
When the question came up,
Eisenhower set off laughter by
pulling a sheet of paper from his
pocket and saying: "You have
just given me a big chance to
read a little list of legislation I
At the top of the list he put his
request for a law to create a
stronger military reserve.

Panels, Discuss Aging Problems

During yesterday morning's1
panel discussions at the confer-
ence on aging currently being held
at the University two elderlyt
farmers told their formulas for
a long and happy life.
Edward Foster, 73, of Saline
related at the conference on Ger-
ontology aging that, "on the ad-
vice of my doctor I decided toI
stop throwing hay around."
While Andrew Ernst, 66, whol
still operates his farm near Sa-
line, told that he had beenf
"throwing it around," earlier yes-
Religion Plays Growing Part
Both men agreed that religion
plays a growing part in their
lives the older they get. Ernst and
Foster were members of a panelI
of four persons who discussed ag-I
ing problems in rural communi-
At the last evening session thet
topic was, "What about the
Aged?" Panel participants includ-
ed Gov. G. Mennen Williams, of
Michigan; State Senator Philip
Graham, (R-Mass.); Philip Kai-'
ser, Special Assistant to Governor
Averell Harriman of New York on
problems of the aged.
Three Categories Named
Conference moderator Frank,
Bane of Michigan outlined three
general categories that the prob-
lem falls into: social, economic,
and health. The state is interested
in the economic phase, but it is
also concerned with whether or
not a worker should retire at a
certain set age regardless of his
productivity potential.
Williams Opens Panel
Gov. Williams opened the pan-
el stating that the loss of efforts'
of the older people to the com-
munity was an important fact to
consider. "The thing that appeals
to me is of finding a method of
giving productive and full lives
to our citizens. We know how ex-

tremely difficult it is for citizens
past 40 to find a new job."
Retirement Brings Apathy
Williams continued by saying
that people don't mellow they just
quit. They lose interest in their
surrounding and become prob-
lems to the community.
The governor believes automa-
tion may produce new fields, since
physical strength will no longer
be of prime importance.
In closing Williams added that
the health of the older member
of our community is not to be
dismissed lightly since it effects
us all.
Cites Unemployment Problem
Senator Graham pointed up the
problems his state was having in
unemployment due to the shift'ot
the textile industries to the
South. Now Massachusetts has
older workers between the ages
of 45-60 on its hands. Skilled in
the textile field and unable to
learn new skills, these workers
are jobless. "Our state," he said,
"has been forced to face this

problem earlier than other states,"
Graham commented.
Time for Action
Mr. Kaiser, a New York resi-
dent, said that Gov. Harriman
feels the-time for action concern-
ing this very critical problem of
dealing with the aged has come.
"The solution must be realistic
and face up to the problem itself
and the people of the state must
face up also," Kaiser commented.
At the conclusion of the talks
moderator Mr. Baynes posed four
major questions and invited ques-
tions from both the audience and
the panelists.

Marine Hunt
TOKYO-(A)-New radio signals
from a downed airman's life raft
renewed hope today that at least
one of four Marines lost in the
Pacific off Japan may be found.
A bright June sun and dimin-
ishing wind also favored the
search-now in its fourth day for
two of the fliers-over a 25,000-
mile stretch of the far western

Fog, Fuel Loss Cause Accident
Lt. Bell and Capt. Hodgen P.
Montague, Jr., of Jackson, Miss.,
apparently parachuted or ditched
about 7 p.m. Sunday evening when
their twin-jet Skynight got lost in
the fog and ran out of fuel.
Since then one of the search-
ers, Marine 1st Lt. Alan Murdock
McAneny, son-in-law of Bradley C.
Barnard, publisher of the Rome,
N.Y., Sentinel, went down in the
fog without a trace Tuesday in his
Marine Fury jet.
Helicopter Crewman Missing
Also missing was one of four
4crewmen of a Marine helicopter
that crashed Wednesday while
hunting for Bell and Montague.
His name Was not immediately re-
leased. The three other crew mem-
bers were rescued.
At nearby Atsugi Naval Air Sta-
tion Bell's wife waited out the
nerve-wracking ordeal of the hunt
under a doctor's care. She ar-
rived in Tokyo by air Tuesday to
join her husband, unaware then
that he was missing. Mrs. Bell
expects a baby in September.
Last Signal Yesterday
Either Bell or Montague has
been in sporadic, brief contact
with searchers by means of a tiny
emergency radio. Its feeble signal
was last heard early Wednesday.
One of the two fliers was sight-
ed 123 miles south of Tokyo in a
tiny liferaft by an Air Force Alba-
tross flying boat Tuesday, The
United States destroyer Thomason
sped to the scene but the flier was
nowhere to be found.
Weather Hinders Search
The other flier was reported in
a lifecraft about 30 miles away.
Shifting winds, choppy seas, bak-
ing hot sun and cold, foggy nights'
were challenging the forces scan-
ning a 20,000 square mile search
At least 70 Air Force, Navy and
Marine planes and about a dozen
U.S. Navy, Japanese and Canadian
ships were in the search.

ListTheir Opinions
Sixty-six college newspaper editors recently answering an opin-
ion poll declared that a "hands off policy" by their university admin-
istrations and local advertisers accounted for the general freedom of
the press they enjoy.
In the third annual opinion poll conducted by News Workshop,
journalism publication of New York University, the majority of edi-
tors revealed the lack of close regulation allowed for reporting of com-
munity and university controversies, editorializing on controversial
issudes and emphasis on political domestic and international affairs.
Editors Agree on Red China
The poll, in which the Michigan Daily participated, specifically
showed that a majority of responding editors believe, that "the Com-
" munists are undoubtedly the de
facto government of China" but
that she should not yet be admit-i
ted to the United Nations.
* Editors also expressed the feel-
ing that therAFL-CIO merger is
unhealthy for the country, and
they condemned the United States

to bar cadets and midshipmen from
