Red Exhibit
,Opens in U.S.
NEW YORK (AP)-The Soviet
Union yesterday opened its first
major cultural and scientific ex-
hibition in this country in 20
It is an exposition of beauty,
taste, confidence and pride.
Not unexpectedly, at the front
of the great main hall of the New
York Coliseum-where it is the
first exhibit to catch the visitor's
eye-is a reminder of Russian ac-
complishments .in outer space-
its Sputniks.
First Deputy Soviet Premier
Frol R. Kozlov scarcely had landed
in this country Sunday to open
the exhibit when he pointedly
sought the attention of reporters,
telling them of the exhibition:
"You will see a model of our
rocket that was aimed at the sun-
that has now become a satellite of
the sun."
And there it is, indeed, a shiny
silver replica of what Russia claims
to 'be man's first cosmic satellite.
There alse is a model of the origi-
nal Sputnik I of 1957, and one of
the nose cone that carried a Rus-
sian dog into space in an electrify-
ing demonstration later the same
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
made a whirlwind one-hour tour
of the exhibit during a quick plane
trip to New York and back to
Washington. Kozlov proudly
pinted out to the President his
cherished model of the cosmic

PresidentrEisenhower through an
interpreter and exchangedtoasts

NEA Seeks
Higher U.S. '
School Aid
ST. LOUIS (M)-A group of lead-
ing educators yesterday called for
a vastly increased program of fed-
eral aid to education, with no
strings of federal control attached.
The Educational Policies Com-
mission said the American public
must boost its spending on public
school by nearly eight billion dol-
lars a year. Only the federal gov-
ernment, it implied, can raise that
kind of money.
The Commissior is an arm of the.
National 7ducation Association,
and the American Association of
School Administrators. It released
its report on "national policy and
the financing of the public schools"
at the NEA's 97th Aniual Conven-
tion here.
Can Do More
Some states and communities
can do more than they are now,
the commission said. But, it added,
it was unrealistic to think that
they can carry the full load of
financial responsibility for quality
Virgil M. Hancher, President of
the State University of Iowa and
Chairman of the Commission, em-
phasized to newsmen yesterday the
Commission's conviction that the
problems of education are na-
tional as well as local.
"We need an educated and in-I
formed citizenry," he said. "This
is vital to our prosperity, security
and even the very survival of our
Want No Restrictions
The Commission report said,
"There should be as few restric-
tions as possible on the manner
in which states handle federal edu-
cational funds. Aside from the es-
sential provisions for audit,. and
assurance that funds will be spent
on public schools, no limits should
be placed on state or local initia-
"There should be specific pro-
hibition of interference by federal
The threat, real. or imaginary,
hangs heavily over any NEA con-
vention. The NEA, the world's
largest professional organization,
representsmabout 665,000educators
raningfrom kindergarten teach-
ers to college presidents. The bulk
of them want federal aid without
any form of federal control.
In a convention session yester-
day the question of a national cur-
riculum for public schools was dis-
cussed at great length and with
some heat. Although most of those
taking part in the discussionfelt
that some sort of national schcdol
standards would be a good thing,
they felt that here too was a threat
of federal control.
Martin Essex, superintendent of
schools at Akron, Ohio, said the
proposal for a national curriculum
"has some disturbing implica-
"It could lead to a rigid type
of school program," he said.

Delay Vote'
On Measure
House Clearing Last
Appropriation Bills
Before Fiscal Year
Special to The Daily
LANSING - The state's higher
education bill, carrying a three
million dollar budget increase for
the University - and promise of
faculty pay raises, moves to a
final vote in the House of Repre-
sentatives here today,
It is expected to pass nearly un-
altered, enabling state universi-
ties to enter the fiscal year start-
ing Wednesday with fewer finan-
cial worries.
The University's proposed bud-
get for the 1959-60 fiscal year is
$33.4 million, highest in history
but almost six million dollars un-
der the total originally requested.
To Give Pay Hike
The sum is expected to provide
substantial salary adjustments
for members of the faculty.
The bill nearly reached the
House floor last night, but was
blocked by Democrats who wanted
an extra day to prepare questions
and possible amendments.
Whatever Democratic strategy
is used, the University's appropri-
Very Sad
LANSING .(M) - The Senate
was told by one of its members
that the condition of the dead-
lock legislature is a "sad thing"
and that "the people are ready
to get up in arms over its
dilatory tactics."
Sen. Haskell L. Nichols (R-
Jackson),who said he was wor-
ried about the reaction of the
people back home, proposed a
two week "cooling off" period
for lawmakers starting Thurs-
Nobody arose to support the
idea, and Sen. Edward Hutchin-
son (R - Fennville) said he
doubted. Sen. Nichols' resolu-
tion would get very serious con-
sideration in his committee.


'The compromise bill simply con-
tinues for & year the'52 per cent
corporation income tax rate and
certain excise tax rates firot voted
in 1951 to help finance the Korean
War. It is the sixth bill to pro-
vide such extension on corpora-
tion income taxes and excises on
automobiles, auto parts and ac-
cessories, cigarettes, liquor, wine
and beer.
The bill does provide some re-
ductions effective June 30, 1960,
but Congress' is free in the mean-,
time to cancel these reductions.
They include repeal of the 10 per
cent tax on local telephone calls,
estimated to cost the government
430 million, dollars in revenue.
Court Rules
Free of Libel
WASHINGTON (.) - The Su-
preme Court ruled yesterday that
radio and TV stations may not be
sued for libel for remarks made
by political candidates in broad-
cast speeches.
The court held that immunity
was provided when Congress
barred censorship of p o li t i c a l
broadcasts, and required stations
to give equal time on the same
terms to rival candidates for the
same office.
Justice Hugo Black delivered
the 5-4 decision. Justice Felix
Frankfurter dissented in an opin-
ion in which.Jistice John Harlan,
Charles Whittaker and Potter
Stewart joined.
Overrules States
The Supreme Court majority
held that the part of the Federal
Communications Act known as
section 315 superseded state laws
dealing with libel.
Black's opinion s aid that,
"whatever adverse inference may,
be drawn from the failure of Con-
gress to legislate an express im-
munity (from libel) is offset by
its refusal to permit stations to
avoid liability by censoring broad-

modate a predicted shift back
from suburban to city living.
The speakers in the legture
series symposium on the city in
transition yesterday reached this
general consensus, but the views
on what constituted the exact
problem and its remedies varied.
Calling art and architecture the
"vitamin content" of man's exis-
tence, moderator Dean Philip N.
Youtz of the architecture college,
suggested a cabinet Department!
of Cities to guide urban growth,
estimating that of the 15 per cent
of our population living in rural
areas, probably 14 per cent have
an "urban attitude."

this number.
Completing the evening's pro-i

Queen Greets' Thousands

TORONTO ()-A hot sun beat
down on Queen Elizabeth during
a gruelling 12-hour day of touring
this Lake Ontario port city where
thousands turned out for a big
greeting yesterday.
For the first time on their 12-
day-old Canadian tour, the ' 33-
year-old Queen and her handsome
husband, Prince Philip, split up to
go to separate functions.
During the day, in which the
temperatures boiled up into the

Philip termed "the dazzling
achievement of the St. Lawrence
Seaway and its prospects for the
future of Canada."
