Neither the University nor
Wayne State University medical

munity Relations said.

Although statistics showed that
few Negroes graduated from eith-
er medical school, the committee
assigned responsibility for this to
other factors, primarily the finan-
cial burden of medical school.
Training Open '
"Statistical information , . .
leaves no doubt that medical
training is and has been open to
qualified Negro applicants" at
both schools, the report said.
The University's medical school
graddated three Negro physicians
in 1957, five in 1956, three in 1955
and two in 1954. Four were grad-
uated from Wayne State in 1957,
five in 1956 and one each in 1955
School officials said that fac-
tors operating to reduce medical
school enrollment seemed to re-
strict the number of Negro appli-
cants more sharply than the num-
ber of whites.
The most important factor was
the financial ,burden, school offi-
cials said with the cost of medical
training high, a long period after
graduation with low income, and
a possible high debt accumulation
if money is borrowed to finance

said. It claimed the rebels out-
numbered government troops 5-1

In a third engagement, rebels
struck at a garrison at Rashaya in
the Bekaa Valley of southern Leb-
anon. The attackers were driven
off in a sharp exchange of gun-j
fire, the communique said.
The rebel forces made another
attack at the north Lebanese port
of Tripoli. The army said they

The rebel national front
claimed it now controls three-
fourths of Lebanon and rebel
spokesman declared the fighting
will go on until Chamoun quits as
president. Chamoun has admitted
the rebels dominate at least 25 per
cent of the country.
But as clashes continued spor-
adically it seemed that the rebels
and the security forces were spar-
ring to test each other's defenses.

Left Them to Heirs
Senate Group Told
WASHINGTON () - Senate
probers were told yesterday that
William L. Hutcheson, late presi-
dent of the Carpenters Union, em-
bezzled union property worth
$250,000 and left it to his heirs.
As the charge was outlined be-
fore the special Senate Rackets
Committee by Robert F. Kennedy,
its counsel, Hutcheson's son Mau-
rice sat poker-faced in the witness
Refuses To Answer
Maurice Hutcheson succeeded
his father as president of the un-
ion. He refused to tell the senators
whether he had used union money
to fix a Lake County, Indiana,
grand jury investigating Indiana
Theyounger Hutcheson also re-
fused to say whether he had an
arrangement with James R. Hoffa,
president of the Teamsters Union,
under which Hoffa 'was to have
made himself useful to him in re-
turn for Hutcheson's support "on
the question of his (Hoffa's) being
ousted from the AFL-CIO."
This was the closest the com-
mittee came to asking Hutcheson
about allegations by Kennedy that
Hutcheson and Hoffa had con-
spired with Max Raddock, publish-
er of a Flushing, N.Y., labor pa-
per, and others to fix the Lake
County grand jury.
Will Ask Committee
Chairman John L. McClellan
(D-Ark.) told newsmen he would
ask the committee to consider
whether Hutcheson's attitude was
in contempt of congress.
The Lake County grand jury did
not return any indictments, but
another one in Indianapolis has
charged Hutcheson and others
with making an illegal profit of
$78,000 on a $20,000 investment in
lands sold to Indiana for highway

White House Says
Charges Against Aide
WASHINGTON () -- Boston
financial mogul John Fox swore
yesterday that Bernard Goldfine
had told him of buying a Wash-
ington house for Sherman Adams
and regularly sending Adams
checks over "long periods of time."
The White House, where Adams
serves as President Dwight D.
Eisenhower's chief assistant, im-
mediately and hotly accused FPZ
of ridiculous lies.
Fox, former publisher of the de-
funct Boston Post, also told a
House subcommittee that in the
1952 Massachusetts election cam-
paign for the United States Sen-
Originally Supported Lodge
He originally supported Repub-
lican Henry Cabot Lodge, con-
cluded Lodge had "been soft on
Communists," swung his backing
to the successful Democrat, Sen.
John F. Kennedy, and later on ob-
tained a $500,000 loan from Ken.
nedy's father, Joseph P. Kennedy.
A White House description of
this as "fantastic testimony" cov-
ered Fox's statements about the
house, checks, and Lodge, who
now is United States ambassador
to the United Nations.
Lodge himself said of the teS-
timony by Fox: "No comment. My
record speaks for itself." Lodge's
statement was issued through the
United States delegation at the
United Nations in New York.
From the White House, from
Adams and from Congress criti-
cism erupted against the House
subcommittee for allowing itself
to become a public forum for such
In New York, the elder Ken-
nely's office said the loan Fox
mentioned was not discussed or
contemplated at the time the Post
endorsed the son.
"The loan , . . was made," a for-
mal statement said, "after the
election as a purely commercial
transaction -- for 60 days only
with full collateral, at full inter-
est and was fully repaid on time--
and was simply one of many com-
mercial transactions in which this
office has participated."
Fox himself said the Kennedy
family did not know in advance of
the Post's endorsement of Sen.
Kennedy and that the loan was
made in December -- after the
November election - and was se-
cured and repaid.
Adams denounced yesterday as
"another malicious falsehood" a
statement by Fox that Goldfine
once said in the presence of
Adams and Fox that Adams was
intervening for hin in a trade
Fox Makes Charge
Fox had sworn that Goldfine
had said: "Those so and so's at
the Federal Trade Commission are
giving one of my mills and my
son and some of my other people
a hard time, and Gov. Adams is
going to take care of that for me."
Adams said in a statement:
"This is another malicious false-
hood. I deny it ever happened."
The House Legislative Oversight
subcommittee is looking into the
relationships of Adams and Gold-
fine to determine whether Adams
exerted any influence - Adams
has denied it - on federal agen-
cies with which his Boston friend
and benefactor was in trouble.
William A. Costello, counselor
on international affairs, Washing-
ton, D.C., will lecture at 3 p.m.
OVER 100,000 WATCH:
Mackinac Bridge Dedication Festivities Start
By DOUGLAS VIELMETTI
Special to The Daily
ST. IGNACE-Dedication festival ceremonies for the mighty
Mackinac Bridge got into full swing yesterday as the sun shown down
on the Straits.
Thursday's dismal rainy beginning jolted predictions of crowds
ranging upwards of 200,000 to 300,000. The weather drove the visitors
away, with predictions of the tourist population at only an estimated
But yesterday, state police estimated crowds watching the mam-
moth parade to be at least 100,000. The parade featured over 100
units with beautiful floats from nearly every major city in the northern
part of the state.
Interlochen Band Performs
The much-discussed Interlochen Music Camp band performed
under the direction of Prof. Joseph Maddy, of the School of Music
late yesterday afternoon. There was no interference from the musi-
cian's unions who had protested the use of unpaid performers.
The United States Weather Bureau at Sault St. Marie forecast'
"a beautiful day" for today's official dedication.
Reuben Ryding, festival publicity chairman expects an even
greater crowd at today's festivities.
Queens from all of Michigan's 83 counties will begin the cere-
monies with a giant motor cavalcade.
As they proceed through the cities of St. Ignace and Mackinaw
City, they will be unwinding a 23,000 foot spool of ribbon as they
proceed to the north anchorage of the bridge. There, they will hand
the ends of the ribbons to the four men officially dedicating the
bridge: Secretary of the Army Wilbur Brucker (Michigan's governor
from 1931-32), Gov. G. Mennen Williams, Bridge Authority Chairman
