'No Bold, New Program'

By Ken Sanford

DURHAM, Dec. 8. "Eisen
hower's cabinet came into office
with no conception of the prob
lems they were up against,"
White House Correspondent Bill
Costello said in a speech here
Costello said, "Eisenhower has
produced no bold, new program
for dealing with Communism.
The Republicans led people to
expect too much wnen they sug
gested a great cut in the budget.
"They oversold themselves."
Costello made these remarks
in answer to questions asked
after his speech on American
policy in Asia.
In commenting on the attitude,
people hvae toward Asia, Cos
tello said, "There are three
types of people who are real
enemies of freedom. The first is
the escapist. He wants to believe
that Communism will go away if
it is ignored, or else he believes
we should go all out with the
atomic bomb and get it over
with. Another believes there is
nothing to fear. He waves pro

duction charts and ignores the
facts. The neutralist wants
compromise at all costs. These
people are all neurotics. The
proof that they are wrong is in
the fact that Russia broadcasts
her intention of ruling the world
just as Hitler did."
Outlines Communist Plans
Costello outlined the Commu
nists' plans as "a simple strategy
of gaining control of more and
more territory by any method."
He said, "Malenkov has reversed
Stalin's policy of letting the
people go hungry to build for
war. Malenkvo is giving them a
little more butter along with
their guns. .
"Today the small farmer in
Russia has the legal right to be
a small capitalist. It is signifi
cant that this change came with
the arrest of Beria. It means
that Malenkov sees no imminent
war " r. ,1

said "I asree with those who
think that China will break with
Russia in the end, but that may
be 25 years away." When asked

The Student Party yesterday
took the largest majority that any
party has had in the student legis
lature since the two-party system
was set up in 1938, as 2,200 stu
dents went to the polls in the an
nual fall election.
The unofficial count at 11:30
last night was 31-18 in favor of the
SP, with one double-endorsement.
The University Party was ap
parently flabbergasted and in the
words of President Bob Gorham,
they were "very much surprised at
the whole thing." Gorham contin
ued, "I don't feel this is a repudi
ation of UP policy or accomplish
ments in the past year. I don't
think this is a mandate from the
students to carry out the platform
which the SP proposed. There are
many things in their platform
which "are impractical and impos
sible." Student Party Chairman Gene
Cook said, "The Student Party

that the SP would at least retain
the 26-24 majority which it has

one except Cook seemed to think
that the SP would gain so over

Calls For End
WASHINGTON, Dec. 8. (JP) The
Eisenhower Administration called
upon the Supreme Court today to
outlaw racial segregation in Amer
ica's public schools.
It went straight down the line
with the Truman Administration
in declaring that separate schools
for Negro children, even if they
are equal to those for white pu
pils, are illegal under the constitu
tion. But Virginia's attorney general.
J. Lindsav Almond, told the high
tribunal that it was being asked to
make "a decision contrary to the
spirit and intent and purpose of
the 14th Amendment."
The amendment provides that no
state shall deorive any citizen of
due process of law or- deny him
equal protection under the laws.
The white-haired attorney gen
eral thundered that opposing law
yers were asking the court to
amend the constitution.
"They are asking you ... to go
farther than the congress ever in
tended this court should go," he
Asst. Atty. Gen. J. Lee Rankin
had told the nine black-robed jus
tices they have "the power and
the duty" to rule that segregation
violates the 14th Amendment.
"It is the position of the Depart
ment of Justice," Rankin declared,
"that segregation in the public
schools cannot be maintained un
der the 14th Amendment."
