The Outside World:
Ike Warns Middle la
President Eisenhower told the Middle East the menace of inter
national Communism could smash all their hard won accomplish
ments over nignc.
In a world-wide radio broadcast marking the 15th anniversary
of the Voice of America, Eisenhower noted that in the face of that
menace, he has asked Congress to approve an anti-communist pro
gram for the Mideast.
Sen. Lyndon Johnson (D-Tex) said after a talk with Secretary
of State Dulles that the chances for a Middle East settlement "appear
v uc auiuewiiat more nopeiul.'
Sen. Knowland (R-Calif) put .before the United Nations a 10-Doint
indictment of Soviet policy in Eastern Europe over the past 20 years.
Knowland .spoke in reply to a Soviet demand in the UN special
political committee tftat the United Nations condemn the United, state
for "subversive activities" aimed a the overthrow of Communist gov

President Eisenhower Monday nominated Armory Houghton, chair
man of the board of the Corning (NY) Glass Works, as the new
ambassador to France.
The 56-year-old Republican replaced C. Douglas Dillon, who last
month was named deputy undersecretary of state for economic affairs.
Ten U.S. Prisoners
An ousted official of the U.S. Information Agency says at Aeast
two of the 10 Americans held prisoner by the Red Chinese are agents
of the Central Intelligence. Agency. '
Charles Edmundson said that is why the State Department has
been trying to bar U.S. newsmen from going to Communist China.
He said the department fears the newsmen might learn some of
the imprisoned Americans are intelligence agents and that this might
weaken U.S. efforts to get the prisoners freed.

James W. Pittenger, Assistant
to the Chancellor, said Monday
that "the administration is in the
process of setting up an advisory
committee to work out a solution
to the parking problem that is
fair and equitable to all."
Pittenger emphasized that the
committee will go into all sugges.
tions , and attempt to find out if
they are feasible and have the sup
port of the student body. Pittenger
said, "We have no answer to the
problem right now, but perhaps
some student does. The most im
portant thing about this problem
is that the students recognize it
as a difficult one and present con
structive ideas. We will welcome
and consider any suggestions care
Several suggestions have been
proposed to the committee, accord
ing to Pittenger. Among those pre
1. Instr ,11 parking meters on park
ing places outside the large park
2. Restrict the use of cars by
Underclassmen. Underclassm e n
would be allowed cars, but they
would be stored in perifery ar
eas around campus and would not
be used on campus.
3. Build a multi-story parking
garage in the large parking areas
4. Ban all cars from the cam
pus entirely. Wisconsin and some
other schools in the Big Ten
follow this policy.
Pittenger reiterated that these

"The problem might find some
relief in education of the student
to the limitations of parking on
campus," Pittenger continued.
"For instance, there is a large
parking lot at 17th and Vine that

parking there means a walk, but
a frend of mine recently picked
up a student who was walking
from 13th and F because he
couldn't find a place to park."
That is certainly much farther
than lTfch and Vine."
