culture A&M, speaks before a combined meeting - of the Board of Directors for the A&M
system and the Texas Section, Institute of Food Technologists, only moments before the
department’s new horticultural foods processing laboratory was named for him. At this
point he did not suspect what was to happen. Dr. M. T. Harrington, chancellor for the
System, announced the name of the building, the Guy W. Adriance Horticultural Labora
tory, minutes later during his dedication address.

Adlai Pleases Arkansas;
Asks For Ban Acceptance
Adlai Stevenson won crowd applause in the Deep South
today with a plea for “law abiding” acceptance of the Su
preme Court ban on race segregation in public schools.
An almost entirely white crowd of several thousands at
Little Rock, Ark., gave the Democratic presidential nominee
a burst of handclapping—and some cheers rang out—when
he declared that regardless of personal feelings all Americans
should accept the decree “as law abiding citizens.”
There was applause too, though not so much of it, when
Stevenson followed his appeal with an endorsement of the
Democratic platform rejecting “all proposals for the use of
force” to carry out the integration ruling.
Stevenson spoke while standing rather precariously on
the narrow ledge of a bunting-draped platform in Little
Rock’s MacArthur park. Then he headed south by plane for
further speeches yesterday and last night in New Orleans
and Miami Beach.
The friendly reception in Little Rock to his segregation
views delighted Stevenson’s staff, which had expected silence
at best.
As it turned out, not a boo was heard, although the crowd
was momentarily silenced and some members of the audience
shook their heads, when the candidate reaffirmed his opinion
that the integration decision was “right.”
Applause broke out almost immediately, however, when
he went on to say:
“Some of you feel strongly to the contrary.
“But what is important is that we agree that once the
Supreme Court has decided this controversial question we
accept that decision as law abiding citizens.
“Our common goal is the orderly accomplishment of the
result decreed by the court.”
Stevenson said too, the office of the presidency should
be used “to bring together those of opposing views in this
matter—to the end of creating a climate for peaceful ac
complishment of this decision.”
Arkansas Gov. Orval Faubus, who introduced Steven
son, told reporters later he didn’t think the crowd reaction
was “particularly significant”—that it merely reflected the
state’s desire to seek a peaceful solution of the integration
M. T. Hai'i'ington, System - chan-
cellox*, in dedicating the building,
said, “Guy Adriance is .as much a
pax-t of the A&M System as it is
possible for a man to be. Litei’ally
boxm on the campus, he is the son
of Duncan Adriance, who was
chemist for the Texas Agricultural
Expexhment Station and the gi’and-
son of John Adriance, a member
of the Board of Directors just be
fore the turn of the century.”
Ben Golub, of Houston, presi
dent of Belle Products Inc., seiwed
as spokesman for the Texas Section
of the IFT in accepting the build
ing. “We have had invaluable as
sistance from the college and
Adriance, Golub said.” “This soi't
of cooperation makes us feel won
derful in knowing’ the college is
hex - e to help us meet our problems.
I know that we will get the needed
lift to go on and produce more and
better foods for Texas.”

Polish Officer
Defects With
New MIG 15
ROENNE, Bornholm, Den
mark—UP) — A young - Polish
air force officer flew an ultra
modern Soviet MIG jet fighter
to Denmark yesterday in a
daring 200-mile dash for freedom.
Danish experts marvelled over the
plane and one said: “It’s really
something very special.”
The pilot Flight Lt. Zygmond
Gosciliak, 28, said he flew un
molested from a base near Poznan,
site of the Polish workers’ bread
and freedom uprising in June.
He narrowly missed being shot
down by Danish antiaircraft guns
with his goal in sight.
A Danish army unit readied its
guns when the improved model
MiG To circled over Roenne. The
city was bombed accidentally by
Russian war planes in 1945 and
the gunners remembered.
The Danish gun commander at
the last moment decided to wait
and see if this was another Polish
airman defecting. Two other Po
lish fliers fled to Bornholm in
MIG 15 fighters three years ago.
The swift jet came barreling
down to a perfect belly landing,
sliding 450 yards -across the air
port grass. The only damage was
to the tip of the right wing.

“Forget Party Politics, ”
Nixon Tells Texas Voters
HOUSTON, Tex.—UP) — Vice-President Nixon urged
Texans last night to forget partisan politics and reelect the
Eisenhower administration because the President’s program
“is bigger than any political party.”
Bidding to keep Texas in the Republican column where
it swung in 1952, Nixon told voters in this normally Demo
cratic state that “the name of the party is immaterial.”
“It is what you stand for that counts,” he said in a
speech prepared for delivery at the Houston Music Hall.
It was Nixon’s first invasion of the Democratic South
west since he started a 32-state campaign drive last Tuesday.
Earlier in the day he pleaded with Oklahoma voters to stay
with Eisenhower as they did in 1952.
His afternoon speech at Oklahoma City was cut short
because the vice-president wanted to conserve his throat for
tonight’s speech. He spoke about 16 minutes in an Okla
homa hotel dining room before turning over the show to his
wife, Mrs. Patricia Nixon, who captivated her audience for
two minutes.
Nixon was laid low by an attack of influenza and laryn
gitis night before last in Salt Lake City, but said he felt
better yesterday and rested during the two-hour flight from
Oklahoma City.
He was attended enroute by Dr. ^Malcolm Todd, physician
who joined the campaign at Long Beach, Calif.
Nixon said he addressed Texans not as “Democrats or
Republicans, but as Texans and Americans.”
The Eisenhower program, he said “is a program as big
as America itself and it contains principles and policies that
I think represent the best thinkings of both political parties.”
Both political parties, he said, “have contributed greatly
to America’s progress—the name of the party is immaterial.”
For a time, he said, there were ‘“hopeful signs that Mr.
Stevenson would shed the Truman, ADA, Americans for
Democratic Action influence and offer Americans something
better than the dismal program he presented in 1952.”
