Pakistan Requests US Aid
KARACHI, PAKISTAN Pakistan has requested United States
military aid within the scope of U.S. mutual security legislation,
Prime Minister Mohammed Ali said. Pakistan asked for aid In
order to increase their defensive strength and economic stability
which is designed to foster international peace and security within
the framework of the United Nations charter. Pakistan' is aware
of the requirements of the United States mutual security legisla
tion and feels that they are in agreement with them, the Prime
Minister said.
India is opposed to U.S. military aid for Pakistan. Prime Min
ister Nehru said that instead of adding to the security of the region,
the military aid would add to the tension of the region and feel
ings of insecurity in Asia. "It is a wrong step," Nehru said.
A-Bombs To China
LONDON "China get A-bombs from Russia" is the front page
headline of the current issue of The People, a non-political weekly
which claims that Soviet Foreign Minister Molotov gave this
information to American Secretary of State Dulles during private
conversation in Berlin. A British newspaper had informed the
U.S. that Communist China has been given a stock of atom bombs.
The newspaper said that Molotov's purpose was to prove that
China has every right to participate in the talks on the Eisen
hower plan for using atornic power for peaceful purposes. The
article continued to say that Western military experts are believed
to be impressed because this gift by Russia may be evidence that
the Soviet's stockpile of atomic bombs has grown to sizable pro
portions. Big Four Report
WASHINGTON Eight senators and seven House members
met with Secretary of State Dulles in an attempt to convince the
nation that he obained the best possible results from the Big
Four meeting in Berlin. Dulles made a report to the group on his
conference decision to take part in an Asian peace conference , in
Geneva with Communist Chinese and Russian delegates.

raised by The Lincoln Journal.
The basic question was, Does the

Board's right to solve problems
in a manner it deems in the

best interests of the institution.
At the same time, the Board
recognized the contention of The
Lincoln Journal as (1) It is the
absolute right of the press to
report publicly both preliminary
and final actions of the Board
of Regents, and (2) The exer
cise and final actions of the
Board of Regents, and (2) The
exercise of such right ultimately
works to the best interests of
the University.
Applied to the current prob
lem of selecting a chancellor for
the University of Nebraska, The
Lincoln Journal's contention
would demand immediate re
lease of the names of all per
sons the Board plans to consult
before reaching a decision.
SUCH A general announce
ment, the Board has ample rea
son to believe, would cause
some men whose names are on
the list to withdraw from con
sideration. All of the men on
the list hold responsible positions
and several of them have al
ready said announcement of
their names during the prelim
inary talks is embarrassing.
None of these men is actively
seeking the chancellorship. They
are educational leadars who
have been recommended for con
sideration by a speciel faculty
committee of the University. The
Board feels that common cour
tesy, orderly procedure, and the
best interests of the University
would be abused by refusal to
respect their wishes for anony
mity during the, preliminary
phases of a search for a chan
cellor. BECAUSE OF this feeling, the
Board cannot agree with the
philosophy advanced by The
Lincoln Journal which would
establish as the first prerequi
site for the University's chancel
lor a willingness to have his
name made public during the
period of preliminary talks.
IT IS the opinion of the Board
that its first duty is to perform
as it deems best the task for
which it was elected; namely, to
serve the best interests of the
University within the framework
provided by Nebraska law.
