Prime Minister
Adds New Talks
Macmillan Schedules Conferences
With Khrushchev, Other Statesmen
MOSCOW (-) - Prime Minister Harold Macmillan' last night
suddenly canceled a hunting trip planned by the Russians for today
and arranged instead to have further private talks with Premier Nikita
Khrushchev in the countryside.
The visiting British leader's change in plans was made known
after a lavish dinner in the British embassy, where Khrushchev hailed
him as a man of peace.
- Guests at the dinner quoted Khrushchev as saying:
"We (the Russians) think that the conversations between us will
bring results." A Soviet foreign ministry announcement said "there

Plan 'Fake'
GENEVA (P)-Soviet delegate
Semydn Tsarapkin charged yester-
day that an American proposal to
use nuclear weapons for peaceful
purposes was a trick to circum-
vent a possible ban on nuclear
weapon tests.
Tsarapkin told the Big Three
conference negotiating for a con-
trolled ban on tests of atomic and
hydrogen weapons that the peace-
ful explosions suggested by the
United States were useless and
were intended to create a loophole
by which American tests could be
Have Reservations
But he said Russia was pre-
pared conditionally to go along
with a limited number of such
explosions. One provision was that
Russian technicians should be
permitted to examine every Amer-
ican nuclear weapon so used.
He also proposed veto controls
and said any such explosions be
on a one-for-one basis, meaning
one Russian for every one fired by
the Ame icans or British.
United States delegate James
J. Wadsworth told Tsarapkin his
statement had distorted and mis-
represented the American plan.
Earmarked for Peace
Wadsworth suggested Jan. 30
that peaceful nuclear explosions
should be permitted after a test
ban' under supervision of the pro-
posed international control com-
mission. He suggested that stand-
ard nuclear weapons should be
withdrawn from present stock-
piles and earmarked under inter-
national control for peaceful ex-
Under his proposal, only nuclear
devices developed after a test ban
comes in force would be subject
to exami ation prior to use for
.peaceful purposes.
American technicians believe
nuclear explosions could prove of
great economic value in such pro-
jects as clearing harbors on bar-
ren, coast-lines, freeing thinly
spread oil shale, or creating energy
through the underground accumu-
lation of ssteam.
Outlines Proposal
Earlier Wadsworth submitted a
draft preamble .for the test ban
treaty listing the four major points
as follows:
1) A desire of the three nuclear
powers to bring about a permanent
discontinuance, of nuclear weapon
2) A need for a permanent in-
ternational control system to en-
sure observance of the ban.
3) A desire of the three powers
to have all countries join the
treaty to make the ban and its
control as universal as possible.
4) A hope that the control sys-
tem, once it is functioning, will
show the way to agreement.

the Russians. He visited Moscow

Red China
In Plans
Department's top Far East spe-
cialist said yesterday "I believe
Red China should be included" if
a sound, workable system could be
set up for controlling armaments
or nuclear weapons tests or guard-
ing against surprise attack.
But in taking this position be-
fore the Senate disarmament sub-
committee, Walter S. Robertson
said he wanted to stress the words
"sound" and "workable."
Robertson, Assistant Secretary
of. State for Far Eastern affairs,
said foolproof guarantees would
be needed in the light of what he
called Red Chinese violations of
true and arms control agreements
in Korea and Indochina.
He said the Red Chinese have
been guilty of repeated broken
promises and of undermining the
work of control commission in
both areas.
The Communists frequently vio-
lated the Korean armistice agree-
ment, Robertson said, by not re-
porting large amounts of war
material sent into Red North
Korea. He accused the Red Chi-
nese of showing the same disre-
gard for an arms control agree-
ment by shipping weapons into
Red Viet Nam.
To bring Communist China into
a world disarmament pact with-
out adequate control measures
might cause the free world tore-
lax its vigilance, Robertson told
the subcommittee, adding:
"Any unjustified slackening of
our guard can only be at our
extreme peril."

Cyprus, Says
British Keep
LONDON ( -) - The new re-
public of Cyprus will guarantee
Britain continued sovereignty over
two military zons and the island
and set up safeguards against
fighting between Greek and Turk-
ish Cypriots.
These arrangements were out-
lined yesterday in a 5,000-word
White Paper on the accord
reached last week among Britain,
Greece, Turkey and representa-
tives of Greek and Turkish Cyp-
The two areas to remain under
full British sovereignty are the
Episkopi region in the south and
the Pergamos area in the center
of the island. Britain currently
has between 30,000 and 35,000

Set Target Date
The target date for establish-
ment of the republic is Feb. 19,
It will be governed by a Greek
Cypriot president and a Turkish
Cypriot vice-president. There is
to be a House of Representatives
elected by universal suffrage for
a period of five years, with mem-
bers drawn 70 per cent from the
Greek Cypriot community and 30
per cent from the Turkish
A separate defense treaty pro-
vides for joint action by Greece,
Turkey and the new republic
against any aggressor threatening
any one of them.
To Form Court
A supreme court made up of
one Greek Cypriot, one Turkish
Cypriot and one neutral will be
the final arbiter in any conflict
between national groups among
the 500,000 islanders.
Civil disputes involving people
in the same community will be
tried by a tribunal made up of
judges belonging to that commu-
nity-for example Greek or Turk-
ish Cypriot.
If the principals belong to dif-
ferent communities, the tribunal
will be mixed and chosen by a
high court of justice.
Both Sides Represented
The agreement calls for the im-
mediate establishment of a joint
commission to draft a constitu-
tion. It will comprise representa-
tives of the Greek and Turkish
governments as well as the Greek
and Turkish Cypriot communities.
Britain, which has ruled Cyprus
for 81 years, will now have spe-
cified port facilities at Fama-
gusta and the use of certain lo-
calities for troop training. British
aircraft will be able to fly over
the island without restriction.

Henderson Questions U.S

"Do we want bigger and better
panty raids?" Prof. Algo Hender-
son of the education school asks-
and answers that student aware-
ness is more than simply violent
protests against supposed wrongs.
Question and answer were pro-
vided in a recent edition of the
Association of American Colleges
Bulletin, in an article by Prof.
Henderson, director of the Uni-
versitys Center for the Study of
Higher Education. They break
down into an argument against
the application of mass-produc-
tidn methods to the field of edu-
"Principles of Education'
"The personal factor in educa-
tion" Prof. Henderson declares,
"is of the greatest significance."
And he backs up with a statement
with "principles of education"
which he says must be preserved.
First, he writes, a college or
university "should be a commu-
idity of people . . . gathered to-
gether to learn." Next, each
student "needs to feel a sense of
belonging," including "developing
loyalties to something bigger than
The student also "needs recog-
nition for his individual merit,"
Prof. Henderson says. "He should
Dies. in11hParis
Prof. Jean Hebrard, formerly of
the architecture college, died Sat-
urday in Paris, France.
Prof. Hebrard and his wife were
spending the winter in Paris.
A graduate of the Ecole des
Beaux Arts, Architectural Section,
Paris, in 1903, Prof. Hebrard
taught at the University from
1931 1949, when he retired.
Previous to this Prof. Hebrard
taught at Cornell University from
1907 to 1911 and at the Univer-
sity of Pennsylvania from 1926 to
1931. He also was architect of an

feel that he is something more to
the professor than a face in a sea
of faces." And to accomplish this,
"bridges of intercommunication
must be built," and diversification
of programs an dmethods of edu-
cation must be accomplished.
Foreign Students
In an international comparison
of student bodies, Prof. Hender-
son pointed to "certain foreign
universities" which provide "an
answer or} what not to do." For
while students at these schools
do show an interest in politics,
and while several actions seem to
indicate a greater maturity than
American "panty raids," Prof.
Henderson denies this maturity.
"The "actions," he writes, "are
too often those of pressure groups
using mob techniques rather than
the rational acts that might be
expected of educated persons."
Such activities, Prof. Henderson
explains, are due in large part to
"student frustrations" that do not
reach such large proportions in
American colleges.
These frustrations in turn are
caused partly by the fact that
"these universities do not in any
sense constitute acommunity;"
that "the students are left adrift;"
and that "the university is cold
and impersonal," a "horizontally
segmented world" with "no oppor-
tunity for faculty-student inter-
Considers American System
This last Prof. Henderson con-
siders one of the most important
facets of the American college
system, and he lays great stress
on the psychological difference of
"belonging" to a group. Student
government was high on his list of
activities instilling responsibility
in students. He quotes an official
in Ceylon as objecting to student
government because "the students
were not sufficiently mature,"
then asks, "Is not responsibility a
skill that grows with practice?
"What do we mean by 'educat-
ing for leadership' in society," he
continues, "if not precisely these
kinds of things?"
Sees Danger
But the community spirit which
Prof. Henderson sees as a basic
part of American college life, he
also sees as in danger of being re-
