Macmillan takes Office As Prime Minister x
LONDON. PL Bristling with confidence, Harold MacmiUlan
took over as Prime Minister last night and set the stage for early
talks with President Eisenhower to heal the rift in British-American
relations. v '
" There were indications the ; White House .was .ducting off the
'welcome' mat denied Sir Anthony Eden after the Suez invasion. High
Washington officials said Macmillan will be welcome whenever he
decides to visit Eisenhower, a longtime friend.
Macmillan served notice he . will not call national elections, as
the Labor Party has demanded. But iWseems' certain there will be a
shakeup in the conservative cabinet. ' ;
President Eisenhower Calls For American Unity
WASHINGTON UP) President Eisenhower -1 "
American people yesterday to- stiii'i 'Viriirac guarr," against ev-r-threatening
inflation at home, and the menace abroad ci "armed im
- Reporting to Congress and the country on the State of the Union
at this moment in history, Eisenhower urged business and labor lead
ers to "think-well on their responsibility to the American people'' and
go easy on price and wage boosts that could increase inflationary pres
sures. "The national interest," he said, "must take precedence over
temporary advantages which may be secured' by particular groups at
the expense of all the people."
. While the pursuit of human liberty, welfare and progress "has
brought us to an unprecedented peak in our economic prosperity,"
the President said, the danger of inflation "is always present.'
On the international scene, he said, the existence of a strongly
armed imperialistic dictatorship is a continued' threat to the security
and peace of the free world and "thus to our own." Ameriaa, he
said, cannot stand "alone and isolated."
- He took' a sort of mellow, moderate, unspectacular approach to
problems and issues of the day. For solutions, hG pretty much stood
pat on things he has recommended in the past.
There were brief warmedsover bids for such things as a school con
struction bill,. civil rights legislation, and the authority requested only
last Saturday to use American troops, if need be, against any Com-
rmunist aggression in the Mid-East
There were passing allusions
administration of justice, a postal rate boost, development of natural
resources, amending the labor laws, public works.
Eisenhower called briefly, too, for:
A law granting permanent entry to Hungarian refugees, authori
ty for the United States to join the organization for trade cooperation,
approval of full U. S. participation in the International Atomic Energy
Agency, and an, appreciable increase in funds for the U. S. informa
Syrian Government Renounces Ike Policy
DAMASCUS fiP) Syria'- government yesterday declared its
"deep-rooted belief" that maintenance of peace and security in the
Middle-East is "solely the responsibility of the people of this area."
The government issued a statement on President . Eisenhower's
speech on Middle-East policy to the V. S. Congress, saying Syria re
jects "the theory of a" power vaccum in the Middle-East."
It- described as "serious" Eisenhower's request for stand-by
authority to send U. S. troops against aggression in the area.
. It asserted there is no Communist threat in Syria.
, - The Syrian statement, however, welcomed the Eisenhower an
nouncement of "American all-out support of full sovereignty and
the com pi ejte independence of Middle-East nations."

University j Librarian Andrew H. Horn has resigned.
This was learned Thursday by The Daily Tar Heel from
several top officials of the University who refused to let their
names be made public.
Dr. Horn's resignation will be handed to a meeting of
the Executive Committee of the Hoard of Trustees next
week. Until then, the University will not release information
on his leaving.
Dr. Horn resigned for "personal reasons." It was not
known w hat those reasons were.
Questioned yesterday about reports of his resignation,
Dr. Horn said a University regulation requires that all such
information come from the chancellor, not from the per
son resigning. ' TT . . , f
