Gives Thanks for Home Support,
Desires No More 'Outside Help'
CAMP WITTINGTON, Japan (A') - William S. Girard says he's
sure he will get a fair trial in a Japanese court, and believes he will
be acquitted.
The American soldier expressed gratitude yesterday for the ef-
forts made on his behalf in the United States.

But now that the United States Supreme Court has affirmed
the right of the United States government to turn him over to Jap-
anese custody Girard let it be known through his Army legal ad-
viser that he doesn't want any more outside assistance.

Beck, Son
In Seattle
SEATTLE (P)-A county grand
jury yesterday indicted Teamster
President Dave Beck and his son,
Dave Beck Jr., on charges of grand
larceny of union funds. '
The indictments were branded
by the elder Beck as "simply ri-
diculous" and without any merit
"even by the wildelt stretch of
the imagination."
The KingtCounty grand jury
said in one indictment that Beck
Sr. appropriated to his own use
$1,900 received from the sale of
a' 1952 Cadillac owned by the
Western Conference of Teamsters.
Son Accused
The son was accused in two sep-
arate charges of keeping $1,850
received for a 1951 Cadillac owned
by the Seattle Joint Council of
Teamsters and $2,800 received in
the sale of a 1953 model owned
by the Western Conference.
Both quickly surrendered to
county officials, were booked,
'mugged" and fingerprinted and
each released in $3,000 cash bail.
At the time of his booking, Beck
Sr. declined to comment but later
held a press conference in which
he said he spoke for himself and
his son.
Admitted Readily
He readily admitted the three
automobiles had been sold, with
the son acting as the "innocent"
agent of the union.
He said he had authority to or-
der the sale of the cars or any
other union assets "or to give or
dispose of union funds" without
question by others.
He also said the money received
for the automobiles had been de-
posited to his own personal ac-
count by his secretary during his
absence from Seattle.
Talks Back
"I repaid every bit of it, in cash,
to the union as soon as I returned
to Seattle and learned of the
transaction," he said.
Asked if union boks would show
he had returned the money, Beck
said it probably wouldn't show as
a specific transaction because the
union "transacts so much of its
business on a cash basis."
He said, "No money ever was
acquired that was not turned over
to the proper persons in the due
course of time."

Initial Facilities
Ready F'all, 1959
Four Buildings, at $6,500,000 Cost,
To Hold 2,770 Student Enrollment
Daily Editor
DEARBORN -- When the University's Dearborn Center,
or "East Campus," opens in September, 1959, the first four
buildings will provide facilities for 2,770 students in three
fields of study.
These plans for initial development of a 45-acre section
of the former Ford property were approved yesterday by Uni-
versity Regents meeting here at Fair Lane.
Cost of the development will be $6,500,000, the amount given
the University last December by the Ford Motor Company Fund,.
Dearborn to be Two-Year School
The Ford Motor Company grant included 210 acres of- land and
the Fair Lane estate, home of the late Henry Ford.

~Ie Inks Bill
To Decrease
FHA, Cost
WASHINGTON (M-Legislation
permitting lower down payments
on FHA-insured homes was signed
by President Dwight D. Eisenhow-
er yesterday.
But whether the reduced scale
will go into effect will not be
known until next week.
President Eisenhower did not
say one way or the other, although
he criticized other features of the
omnibus housing bill in announc-
ing his approval of the measure
as a whole.
Ever since Congress passed the
bill on July 1, there has been an
argument in administration quar-
ters over whether its lower down-
payment provision would have an
inflationary effect.


DEARBORN CENTER PLANS -- The architect's drawing of the proposed area for beginning con-
struction at Dearborn Center pictures the four preliminary buildings (shaded areas). White
areas indicate placement of future buildings. Area is accessible by drive from the north (top

for parking.

Civil Rights
for Action.
By Tuesday
WASHINGTON (M) - Southern
opponents of the civil rights bill,
agreed in the Senate yesterday to
allow a vote about 6 p.m. Tues-
day on a motion to bring the
measure to the floor for action.
All signs pointed to adoption of
the motion, which would consti-
tute a major, though strictly pre-
liminary, victory for Northern
supporters of the bill.
Sen. Richard Russell (D-Ga),
leader of the Southern opposition,
conceded he has no hope of pre-
venting the bill from coming be-
fore the Senate.
He said his bloc agreed to let
the bill come up because it feels
there is a good chance of winning
changes that will make it more
palatable - even though still ob-
jectionable - to the South.
Unanimous Senate agreement
to vote Tuesday came after five
days of debate in which the civil
rights bill was defended as pro-
gressive legislation.
The legislation would set up a
civil rights commission to make
a two-year study of civil rights

Adult Education Plan
Announced by Regents
DEARBORN-Plans to establish a unified program in adult

This, Dean Dor said, will give

Work to Begin
Work has been authorized to be-
gin on four buildings:
1) A two-story classroom build-
ing costing $1,142,000 and housing
28 classrooms, seven science lab-
oratories, e n g i n e e r i n g design
rooms, lecture halls and research
2) A one and two-story engi-
neering laboratory, largest of the
four buildings, costing $1,598,000
and affording space for laboratory
work in electrical, metallurgical
and automotive engineering.
3) A $534,000 faculty office
building two stories high with
space for 90 to 115 personnel in 75
4) A $649,000 "student activi-
ties" building housing the library,
storage rooms, audio and work
rooms and typing rooms in one
wing and a snack bar, dining
room, kitchen, office, storage area
and muti-purpose room in the
second, or food service, wing.
The multi-purpose room would
be available as a dining area, for
studying and as space for social
Additional Funds
Another $1,000,000 will go to
the purchase of equipment and
furnishings, while the remaining
amount is earmarked for site de-
velopment costs.
Regent Roscoe 0. Bonisteel 'of
Ann Arbor hailed the Dearborn
Center plans as "just the begin-
ning of what 1 believe will be-
come a great educational institu-
tion for the State of Michigan."
Regents expressed the hope
that "other benefactors will come
along as the years go by and add
to this beginning."
Dean Dorr pointed out that the
nearby Henry Ford Community
College would be offering fresh-
man and sophomore undergradu-
ate courses, thereby providing,
with the Dearborn Center, a com-
plete four-year college program in
the area.
Alleviate Enrollments
This, Dean Dorr said, would
both alleviate rising enrollments
on the University's main campus
and meet the qualifications of
qualified men and women who
find present costs at the Univer-
sity too great.
No provisions have yet been
made for housing at Dearborn
Center. Parking areas are present-
ly scheduled to hold only 900 cars.
The 45-acre campus area is
slightly smaller than the present
main campus area.
Fair Lane itself, a large, stately
home with poured concrete walls,
