Stevenson said yesterday war threatens the United States and the entire world because of the Eisenhower administration’s foreign policy. In his strongest accusation to date on the Middle East crisis, ! the Democratic presidential | nominee said President Eisen- ; hower and Secretary of State j John Foster Dulles bear a heavy responsibility for the Middle ! East situation. Stevenson said the Elsenhower administration has lost the friendship it sought with the Arab world and also the confidence of Israel. He also said I the administration stood by idjy while Russia supplied arlns to Egypt and gained a foothold in the Middle EaSt. GOP Deceit Earlier in the day Stevenson accused the Republicans of deceit in domestic policies and added: “The politics of misrepresentation has operated constantly in our foreign policy, too. “Only a short time ago, my opponent assured us that there was good news from Suez. I wonder if he really didn't knowhow bad the situation was in the Middle East or if he did know and decided the American people shouldn’t know. “Unhappily, the vaccilations, the uncertainties, appeasements and provocations of the Eisen-hower-Dulles policy bear a heavy responsibility for the crisis in the Middle East.” Turnabout On the domestic front, Stevenson charged, measures have been passed by Congress over Republican opposition and then claimed by President Eisenhower as Republican accomplishments. “You might call this the politics of adoption,” Stevenson said, “or, you might call it just plain deceit.” He said the nation still does not know whether President I (Continued on Page 4, Col. 7) I>T Photo by Krtrl Thtfjpn Jr. FENCE PERCHERS—Mary Laird ar.d Norene Charnofsky typify the fence-straddling mugwump as Mortar Board member Carol Wilson invites them tc attend a meeting for mugwumps at 3:30 p.m. today at the Methodist Church lounge.

Barney Greenwald in “The Caine Mutiny Court Martial," as the well received production enters its third day. Greenwald risks his military career when he defends the Caines officers against Capt. Queeg. Early Birds To Yell at 8 SC rooters will get a chance to show their spirit at an early-morning rally tomorrow in front of the gym at 8. “We’re sending a power-packed team to meet the Washington State Cougars, and the team wants to hear the yells and enthusiasm of the student body,” said Jerry Madera, Knight rally chairman. I ~Dann Angeloff, yell king, is going to use his hand mike to shock those sleeping in their early classes,” said Madera. Parties Air Last Debate Republicans and Democrats will have a final round of debate when KUSC-TV presents “Controversy” at noon tomorrow. Each party will bring their own rooters, signs, horns and all the other necessary equipment to put on-a show for their candidate. The complete facilities of KUSC-TV will be at the disposal of the two groups, and each will have their own fully equipped sound proof studio from which to defend their major political platforms. Through a complex system of wiring, each will be able to see the other, but no actual fist fights will go on the air, as the studios are a floor apart. Daniel R. Gannon, director of public relations for KUSC-TV, says that each party will have time for “quiet debate, a question and answrer period, and then the floor will be thrown open to whoever can argue the loudest.” Student Denies Esoteric Tastes Arthur N. Goldfarb, medical student, informed the DT that he did not place the ad on page three Tuesday to the effect that he was supporting President Eisenhower. The DT wishes to rectify this practical joke perpetrated on Goldfarb. Norm Nager, business manager, stated that the ad was placed by t w o medical school friends of Goldfarb. where the issues, effects and | impacts of the Nov. 6 election will be discussed. The conversation hour will be held in the Student Lounge of the University Methodist Church, 34th St. and University Ave. Major Issues Heading a panel discussion will be Dr. Totten J. Anderson, professor of political science. Dr. Anderson’s assignment will be to probe into two major issues: 1—The importance of every vote. 2—The significance of past and present elections. Panelists include Walt Williams, representing the Trojan Young Republican Club. He will discuss how politics affect other phases of life. Cerrell to Speak On the other side of the political fense is Joe Cerrell. president of the Trojan Democratic Club. Cerrell will talk about interest in politics and why an individual should be concerned even before he is eligible to vote. Mrs. Pat Russell of the League of Women Voters is the third member on the panel. She plans to suggest methods of obtaining objective facts concerning issues on the ballot and why an individual should learn all sides. Mohinder Bedi will represent international students as he discusses the impact of the L nited States elections on the world. Bedi is a graduate student in political science. Audience Participates At the conclusion of the discussion. the audience and panel members will be able to participate in an informal question and answer period. The meeting will conclude with the serving of refreshments bv members of Mortar Board, senior women’s honorary group. “This is an excellent opportunity for students to hear the problems and issues of the election discussed impartially by well informed people,” Carol Wilson, chairman of the event, told the Daily Trojan. “We’re hoping that these type of discussions will become a regular thing.” Senate Levies Election Fines Totalling $173 Eight office-seekers from the recent campus elections were slapped with fines totaling $173.65 in last night’s ASSC Senate meeting. The meeting was a quiet business-like affair that ignored political issues and accomplished much. Candidates and their fines for breaking election regulations were Sharon New burn, $61; Lynne Samelson, $52: Bill Stephens, $22.65; Barbara Lewis, $22; Rosemarie Beltran. $15; Steve Fryer, $10; Carol Oxley, $6; and Jo Ellen Garverick, $.3. i A slight inclination by proxy | Senator Tom Pflimlin to relieve some fines was met with stern opposition from President Carl I Terzian. Troy Camp Board Two by-law amendments con-• cerning Troy Camp, the summer I camp for under-privileged chil-j dren, were passed by the Sen-! ate. Under the new provisions, j the camp will be governed by I a board rather than by one or two individuals as in the past ; and the camp will be supported | by its own fund-raising drive on campus. In by-passing the tradition ot having only one fund drive here, senators decided that a separate Troy Camp drive will bring in more money from more sources. Other Senate business included the outlining of Homecoming activities by Chairman Stan Miller. A day-by-day report showed the queen's crowning on next' Monday. Flapper Day on Wednesday, Trolios and house decoration judging on Thursday, Wilshire Boulevard parade on Friday, and the Cal game and Homecoming dance on Saturday. Calendar to Hang Miller said that a 20’ x 15’ calendar of Homecoming events will hang in the front of the Student Union building beginning today. Motions were made by Yell King Dann Angeloff and AMS President Bob Meads to congratulate and present scrolls of recognition to the 12 live-game football seniors, f Will Not Order Congress to Extra Session By DAVD C. HENLEY Daily Trojan City Editor Two score SC students huddled around the television set in the Student Union Lounge yesterday afternoon and heard President Eisenhower, speaking to the nation on the Egyptian crisis, promise that there will be “no United States involvement in the Middle East fighting.” The rapt students, a number , T ■ of whom were from Asian and j thousands of young Americans European countries which have as was the case in Korea.” also been the scenes of violence , Ike> jlulsment Sound’ and bloodshed, heard the Presi- j _ dent say that in view of his de- Coodson continued. ’ The pres-termination to keep the United j ent situation makes it impera-States out of the conflict, he tive that as a people devoted to has "no plan to call the Con- peace, we return a man whose gress in special session.” j leadership has been tested time The President said the dedi- and time again and whose judg-cated purpose of the government mnt has proven to be sound and is “to do all in its power to localize the fighting and to end the conflict.” He emphasized, however, that he was speaking to the nation “as your president” rather than in his role as a candidate for re-election. V.N. Processes ‘Exhausted’ He stated that although Great Britain and France have vetoed a U.S. request in the United Nations Security Council for a cease-fire between Israel and Egypt, the processes of the United Nations are “exhausted.” He conceded that there have been “injustices suffered by all nations” involved in the current fighting but he added that “another injustice—war” is not the remedy. "As it is the manifest right of any of these nations to take such decisions and actions, it is likewise our right, if our judgment so dictates, to dissent," Mr. Eisenhower said. “We believe these actions to have been taken in error. For we do not accept the use of force as a wise or proper instrument for the settlement of international disputes,” ke added. In the Student Union audience decisive.” But Cerrell. in violent disagreement with Goodson, told the Daily Trojan. “After listening to the President's speech this afternoon, I was absolutely flabbergasted and amazed at the way the intelligence of the American people was insulted.” He went on, saying “If Eisenhower had only shown some sympathy to Israel. France. England, and the Arab nations, we might not have lost the friendship and confidence we sought. (This statement by Cerrell was in regard to a remark by the President which deplored the fact that the United States was not consulted “in any way or phase” concerning the intended actions of Great Britain and France in the Middle East.) ‘G.O.P.s Fumbled Ball’ ‘The Republican administration has bungled and fumbled the ball long enough while the United States and the rest of the world is threatened by war,” Cerrell said. “This failure by Secretary of State Dulles and the State Department will have to be borne by the President and his admin- hower has offered us sound assurance that the United States will not enter into armed aggression, and in so doing sacrifice the lives and livelihood of Report Ike Incensed Attack Plot' yesterday were Ralph Goodson, istration.” president of the Trojan Young , Cerrell concluded.

Bajina. added that the United States also should join this proposed UN force in a war against the British, French, and Israelis in Egypt.

American officials pointed out that: 1. The Israeli stab into the Canal zone appeared to have no military purpose. Military experts here said it seemed designed more to pave the way for the British-French occupation than to decoy Egyptian troops in the Gaza area. 2. British and French military attaches apparently were notified in advance of the Israeli invasion while U. S. attaches i were kept in the dark. 3. Eden said Britain had urged restraint on Israel. But at the same time he cited Israel's arguments for an attack. And both Britain and France repudiated the 1950 agreement with this country to aid any victim of Middle East aggression. 4. Britain and France vetoed the American resolution in the j United Nations Security Council ; calling for withdrawal of Israel’s 1 troops from Egypt and warning other nations not to intervene. 5. Britain and France faüed to notify this country of their intentions in the Middle East crisis—viruallv unprecedented in postwar Big Three relations.
