On Algeria at Rackham Meeting

Petitions for League Positions Available
Interviews To Extend Through March 24

By BRUCE COLE
An addition has been added to
the amendment to the Algerian1
Resolution which will go before
the Campus United Nations to-
morrow in Rackham Lecture Hall.
The amendment, if passed, will
alter section two of the resolu-
tion which proposes: "To provide,
under the auspices of the United
Nations, for a two-year transi-
tional period during which time
the administration will be trans-
ferred from the French authori-
ties to the provisional government
of the Republic of Algeria, being
the only representative of the
Algerian people."
Ghana, the contributor of the
amendment, recommended alter-
ing section two by proposing: "A.
The immediate withdrawal of all
foreign troops from Algeria.
Asks Plebiscite
"B. That a plebiscite be held
immediately under United Na-
tions auspices, to elect a provi-
sional government.
"C. To provide a two year's
transition period during which the
administration will be transferred
from the French authorities to
the Provisional Government; and
during which an acceptable con-
stitution must be drawn, and
"D. That a general election be"
-V held at the end of the transition
period to elect the government of
independent Algeria."

AHMED BELKHODJA
.. . drafts resolution
The Campus United Nations
general assembly will begin at 10
a.m. with opening ceremonies in-
cluding a brief address by Univer-
sity President Harlan Hatcher.
Following this 'will be the debate
on the resolution. This session is
scheduled for adjournment at
12:30 p.m.
To Convene
The afternoon session, to con-
vene at 2 p.m., will deal with the
Ghana amendment prepared in
advance and any other amend-
ment which may be introduced
from the floor by any country.
Ahmed Belkhodja, Grad., the
delegate from Tunisia, drafted the
Algerian resolution. His interest
in the crisis stems from the fact
he feels world peace hinges
aroun'd this area in Africa, and
that if the French continue in
Algeria, the results could be seri-
ous.
Colonists Fear
The problem lies with the col-
onists who are afraid they will
lose economically if Algeria were
freed. Actually, Belkhodja said,
Algeria has promised trade would
still be carried on with the French
and the rest of the Western world
and that colonists would be per-
mitted to. stay in Algeria and
carry on their businesses, if in-
dependence were granted.
A major issue with these colon-
ists is the discovery of oil in the
Sahara Desert over which the
French would like to have full
control, he added.
,He said he does not see any

difficulty which would arise if
Algeria were free since Tunisia,
her next door neighbor was given
independence and Tunisia is co-
operating with the West.
Learning Here
Belkhodja is here at the Uni-
versity under the Foreign Student
Leadership Program. He will go
back to Tunisia this summer to
report on conditions and to advise
his government on modern meth-
ods for economic security and
health and welfare as well as the
political situation as he sees it.
He added that results of this
year's Campus United Nations
session will be sent to the United
Nations in New York to show that
students are interested in world
affairs and that possibly the
United Nations might be able to
use the information which comes
out of the University's United
Nations.
Maurice Zilber, '60, of the
Union executive committee, is in
charge of the Campus United Na-
tions, which is sponsored by the
Union and the International Stu-
dents Association.
Maier Announces
Executive Board
Plan Revamping
The executive board of the
League has been "completely re-
vamped," Barbara Maier, '59,
president .of the League an-
nounced last night.
She said the League was "in-
terested in expanding its leader-
ship training program for the next
year" and encouraged students to
petition for the new positions
which include four vice-president
positions instead of the former
two and a new Freshman Projects
committee.
The office of prseident will re-
main unchanged.
The vice-president in charge of
committees will assume, along
with the other vice-presidents,
membership in League Council,
executive council and committee
and Board of Governors of the
League besides her duties as co-
ordinator of committees.
The vice-president in charge of
upperclassmen will work as advis-
or to central and individual com-
mittees for Soph Show and Junior
Girls Play.
Treasurer of the League and fi-
nancial advisor to all its projects
will assume the title of vice-
president in charge of finance.
The vice-president in charge of
coordination will be the official
League delegate to Panhellenic
Association, Assembly Associa-
tion and Women's Athletic Asso-
ciation. She will also be chair-
man of the Women's Senate.
Because of the revisions to the
League's executive board, Miss
Maier explained, the Freshman
Projects committee has been
formed to act as an advisory body
for Frosh Weekend and Buro-
Cats.

Petitions for League positions
may be picked up at the Under-3
graduate Office of League and
must be turned in by Tuesday,
Jackie Efrusy, '61, of the Inter-
viewing and Nominating Commit-
tee said yesterday.
On the petition form, she said,
the student explains what she
feels the job entails, from in-
formation available in League;
president's reports. She also fills
in her reasons for wanting the
job and any "suggestions and
criticisms of what has been done
previously," Miss Efrusy added.
After returning the completed
petition to the office, the student
should sign up for an interview
with the Interviewing and Nomin-
ating Committee, she explained.
Interviewing times for Tuesday
through March 24 are now posted.
on the bulletin board in the office.
Interview Informally
The ten-minute interviews, Miss
Efrusy pointed out, will center on
a discussion of the job petitioned
for, with the petitioner informally
talking to a board of students
"representing every class and
every area on campus."
The Committee then makes rec-
ommendations for positions to the
League Council which must ap-
prove all appointments, she said.
Positions open to women who
are now freshmen include com-
mittee members, assistant treas-
urer, and members of Women's
Judiciary Council.
Sophomores are eligible to pe-
tition for committee chairman-
ships and memberships, assistant
treasurer and membership of Wo-
men's Judic.
Senior Posts Available
Senior positions for which jun-

iors may petition include execu-
tive board posts, committee chair-;
men and members, secretary of
the Interviewing and Nominating1
Committee and chairman and
vice-chairman of Women's Judic.
Membership on a League com-
mittee, Miss Efrusy said, provides
"many opportunities to exploit
interests and develop new ones."
The 10 committees are:
COMMUNITY SERVICE
This committee, composed of
women "interested in doing use-
ful volunteer work," she said, or-
ganizes and places student volun-
teers who work at University Hos-
pital, the Speech Clinic and the

The members are "responsible
for all the facilities available at
the League," she continued. The
House Committee's domain in-
cludes the snack bar, listening
rooms and library.

interested in working with foreign
students," it organizes events, ini-

prospective orientation leaders,
also have charge of National Stu-
dent Association's tours to Europe.

ed, help Mrs. Hatcher to plan her
student open houses. In addition,
they organize the programs of
bridge lessons and tournaments,
dance classes and the Saturday
night snack bar program.
