The Outside World (
ike OK's Negotiations
Staff Writer
President Eisenhower has clarified the United States position in
regard to negotiations with Red China. He issued a statement that
the U.S. is willing to confer alone with Red China on a ceasefire in
the Formosa area, but not on matters affecting Nationalist China.
Eisenhower said it may have been somewhat of an overstatement
when the United States insisted last Saturday that Nationalist China
be & party to any negotiations on the Formosa crisis. However, he
stressed that the United States is not going to deal behind the backs
of the Nationalists on matters which concern the Chiang Kai-shek
British Diplomats Active
The coming British election on May 26 is reportedly lending
urgency to British diplomatic efforts. According to British informants,
Prime Minister Eden is hoping to achieve a diplomatic grand slam
including Formosa peace talks, independence for Austria and an
approach to Big Four talks in time to swing votes to the conservative
party during the election.
As a result of this political diplomacy, Britain has asked Premier
Chou En lai of Communist China to elaborate on his proposal for direct
negotiations with the United States on Formosa, and is taking the
initiative in pushing for an early Big Four conference. British, Ameri
can and French officials are now meeting in London to draw up a plan
for a conference with Russia to ease world tensions.
Immunization Set Back
The nation-wide campaign to immunize school children from polio
was set back in several areas after eight children innoculated with one
company's output of the vaccine were reported to have contracted
the disease.
Public health officials say there is no cause for alarm and have
stopped the company from producing any more vaccine until it can
be tested.

Richard Glasford, former Busi
ness Administration junior, was
fined $25 in County Court Thurs
day for disturbing the peace in
connection with the April 14 riot.
Glasford did not deny charges
that he had been on the first floor
of the women's dormitory and had
placed a handkerchief over his
face to avoid identification. Glas
ford said that he had not harmed
anyone or taken anything. He said
that he had entered the dormitory
"to see what was going on."
Glasford was identified in the
hallway by Dean Frank Halgren,
associate dean for men, and was
told to report to the dean's of
fice in the morning.
Acting Judge Ralph Slocnm said
that Glasford knew what he was
doing wrong as evidenced by the
attempt to conceal his identity.
It was also reported Thursday
that no court charges have been
filed against Clarence Swanson,
suspended student whose case was
being considered by the Univer
sity administration for possible re
After considering the case of
Clarence Swanson, the University
has decided to sustain its previous
decision to suspend the former
sophomore Agricultural student.
The University had previously re
instated William Doleman, 23-year-
old graduate student. Doleman has
been placed on conduct probation.
Dean oPStudent Affairs J. P. Col
bert said the case was reviewed
when Doleman, a graduate student,
after first admitting he was in the
woman students' residence during
the disturbance, later insisted that
he remained in the building lobby
for a brief period and then left
without entering the area reserved
for living quarters.
'We have no evidence to dispute
Doleman's statement," the Dean
said. "We do have evidence that
his conduct earlier in the evening
was not what we expect from stu
dents and on that" basis he has
been placed on conduct probation
but he has been reinstated.
Queried concerning the basis of
suspension for the 19 students, the
administration answered, The Ad
ministration has considered as the
basis for suspending students the
identification of those having been

Doleman appeared in County Court
and paid a fine of $25 after pleading
guilty to disturbing the peace. One
student who has been suspended
paid a fine of ?10; another student
paid a fine of $75.
The Nebraskan, in an attempt to
clarify issues which have arisen be
cause of Doleman's reinstatement,
attempted to interview Dean Col
bert Thursday afternoon. Colbert
and feruce Nicoll, administrative
assistant to the Chancellor, told the
Nebraskan that the Administration
would be willing to answer any
written questions that The Nebras
kan would offer, but they did not
think that it would be wise for one
person to rUte the University's
views without conferring with other
University officials.
The questions, and the Adminis
tration's anuswers are as follows:
Was not Doleman positively iden
tified? Upon final review the Administra
tion could not get adequate proof
that Mr. Doleman had been in the
living quarters area of the women's
residence hall during the rioting.
Was consideration made in his
case of his graduate status and pasi.
Was consideration made in other
cases of suspension of past record,
good or bad?
Conduct records were considered.
Is the University considering rein
stating next fall any others bus
If Doleman is not guilty of leav
ing the main entranceway of the
dormitory, why did he plead guilty
i:i court? Is there not a case of a
student who was suspended who
paid paid smaller court fines than
These are questions which must
be answered by (a) Mr. Doleman
and (b) the County Attorney's of
fice. The evidence considered by
the University ant by a court in
this instance need not be the same.
What bearing will the court de
cision have on the status of those
students who have pleaded inno
cent to charges?
Why was Swanson's case being
considered for reinstatement?
Because of its relation to other
aspects of the riot, the Swanson
case was reviewed, but not neces
