The defense of President Dwight
D. Eisenhower's right-hand man
came from Secretary of Commerce
Sinclair Weeks. Weeks was the
third cabinet member to speak for
Adams since the Goldfine probe hit
the front pages.
Adams, Weeks said, has ac-
knowledged an error in judgment
in his relations with an old friend,
Bernard Goldfine, the Boston tex-
tile magnate.
For that mistake-and where is
the man who never makes a mis-
take?-he has been whip-lashed
more brutally than any man in
public life in our generation,'
Weeks said in a statement. -
A short time earlier, Roswell M.
Austin said he thought Adams
acted improperly when he made
an inquiry about a case handled
by the Armed Services Board of
Contract Appeals late in 1957.
But Austin, a retired member of
the board, added that neither
Adams nor an unidentified mem-
ber of Congress who also interested
himself in the case swayed the
board in any way.
The White House has said'
Adams merely relayed inquiries
and replies about the case, in-

Premier Nikita Khrushchev yes-
terday challenging him to com-
plain to the United Nations Se-
curity Council if he believes An-
glo-American military action en-
dangers international peace.
This was understood to be their
joint answer to Khrushchev's dra-
matic bid for an' immediate Big
Five summit conference to con-
sider the Middle East crisis.
The main line of the American-
British-French answer became
known after President Dwight D.
Eisenhower had met for 55 min-
utes with Secretary of State John
Foster Dulles. This was toward the
end of a day of intense allied dip-
lortatic activity.
Avoids Specific
The American-British-French
answer to Khrushchev was re-
ported designed to avoid any spe-
cific proposal for a summit-level
meeting even within the United
It ruled out any thought of an
immediate heads-of-government
parley in Geneva today as
Khrushchev had proposed.
Instead, the Western allies were
reported hammering hard at these
two main points:
Can Ask UN
1) The United Nations Security
Council already is considering theI
problem of American troops in
Lebanon. Any country on this 11-
nation group has the right to ask
the Council to enlarge its work to
consider other matters if it be-
lieves a grave danger to worldI
peace exists.
This could be viewed as a chal-
lenge for Khrushchev to present
such accusations personally since
governments can be represented
at the United Nations by leaders
of even the highest rank.
2) The three Western govern-
ments are ready and willing to re-
sume confidential talks with Mos-
cow to prepare for an over-all
summit conference on the great
world issues.
Such a broad summit parley

All the victims but the four un-

30th Birthday
Ann Arbor's 30th Annual Sum-
mer Bargain Day, sponsored by the
Retail Merchants Association, will
be held tomorrow and Thursday.
The Retail Merchants Associa-
tion, a division of the Ann Arbor
k Chamber of Commerce has given
the event a circus theme.
"Merchants are trying to key
everything to the 30th Anniver-
sary," J. B. White, chairman of
the promotional committee, said.
"Many items will purposely be put
in the 30 cent, $3 or $30 brackets."
"Crazy bargains" will be offered,
according to White. Items such as!
automobiles, televisions, electric
mixers and wedding dresses will
be offered at abnormally low
prices, such as $1Nt item for $3.
Clowns, a four-piece clown*
band, a calliope and antique cars
will tour Ann Arbor's three main
business districts in the Univer-
sity, State Street and downtown
"We feel it will be the best Bar-
gain Day, Ann Arbor has yet had,"
White said. "People are more
price and value conscious than
ever before."
Stores will be open from 9 a.m.
until 8:30 p.m. tomorrow and from
9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Thursday.

Calm Usual
The calm of Amman is not often
broken. When it is,. efficient gov-
ernment forces know what to do
abqut it.
The impression persists that the
Syrians and Egyptians are mark-

It is extremely difficult to dis-
cuss the situation from here for
the usual reasons attendant upon
recurrent crises in Mideast coun-
tries. But this much seems certain

be long and deep, for this whole
Mideast area.
Announcement Ominous
The announcement of the visit
of Sheik Sir Abdullah As Sabbah
of Kuwaitt to Damascus to confer
with President Gamal Abdul Nas-
ser has ominous overtones.
It is most likely Sheik Abdullah
has been badly shaken by events
in the north. Inside his country,

The activities of Nasser support-
ers have been bearing fruit in
internal ferment. Kuwaitis are
outnumbered in their own country
by people from other Mideastern
states who imported the ferment
and passed it on to Kuwaiti youth.

The 6,300 Marines brought with

The Navy spokesman did not spe-

clear. The 3,100 paratroopers from

National Budget Shows
Almost $3 Billion Loss
WASHINGTON (AP)-Preliminary reports yesterday showed the
national budget was in the red $2,813,000,000 at the end of the fiscal
year last June 30.
The deficit was more than five times greater than that predicted
by President Dwight D. Eisenhower last January, and was blamed
largely on the recession slump in individual and business earnings.
The figure was based on preliminary reports still subject to revision,

according to a joint announce-

Robert Anderson and Budget Di-
rector Maurice H. Stans.
Officials are estimating a
budget deficit of 10 to 12 billion
dollars for the fiscal year which
began July 1.
The deficit came after two fis-
cal years in which government
budget books were in the black.
Predicted Smaller Loss
President Eisenhower had pre-
dicted in January the deficit for
the 1958 fiscal year, which ended
June 30, would be only 400 million
Receipts for the fiscal year were
$69,083 million, almost two billion
dollars lower than fiscal 1957.
