Back Fall Rush
To Bring Resolution Before SGC
If Joint Coed Group Gives Support
By KATHLEEN MOORE
Assembly and Panhellenic Associations released a resolution yes-
terday favoring the re-establishment of fall rush to begin next fall.
If the resolution is accepted by the joint group of independent-
affiliated women considering it, it will be presented at next week's
meeting of Student Government Council as representative of the
united views of all women on campus.
The product of a committee composed of the executive boards
of the two organizations, the recommendation calls for a fall rush

Ikes Firm Stand on
BLA2NTYRE, Nyasaland ()-
Fresh violence broke out last night
'in this British protectorate.
One African nationalist was shot
dead and four were wounded in a
noisy gathering of 600 who carried
primitive hand combat weapons in
a defiant stand against colonial
The fourth consecutive day of
fighting raised to 36 the official
count of nationalists killed in
clashes with colonial police and
The big outbreak was at Mponela
where security forces opened fire
on the600 when they defied orders
of a district commissioner. One
nationalist was killed and three
The crowd was armed with
spears, axes and clubs.
A second incident occurred north
of Mponela. An African was sur-
prised there building a roadblock
and fought a security police troop-
er with a knife.
Another member of the security
forces opened fire, wounding the
African in the leg.
Troops and police earlier moved
through the countryside clearing
away roadblocks and repairing
damaged bridges and telephone
Troops also fanned out in the
remote areas of the central prov-
ince, where rebels have been par-
ticularly active. A number of Afri-
cans were arrested for a variety of
offenses, such as carrying weapons.

thrown into a racial uproar by the

After studying the effects of
spring rush on League committees
and projects, the League Council
voted yesterday favoring a defer-
red fall rush.
Barbara Maier, '59, president of
the League, said last year's spring
rush resulted= in a 35 per cent de-
crease in women petitioning for
League positions, as well as a
drastically shortened period in
which to .interview petitioners.
There was also an inadequate
length of time in which to train
new officers, she added.
The committees were handi-
capped during rush, she said, by
the high percentage of affiliates
and rushees who were members

Since the League is not a "step-
up" organization in which mem-
bers go through a training period,
there remains only one month in,
which to train new officers, she
LEIPZIG, East Germany (A') -
Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev
told a group of foreign business-
men yesterday: "I believe there
will be no war and then the possi-
bilities of peaceful expansion of
trade will be still greater.''
While Khrushchev was putting
the accent on peace on his third
day at the Leipzig trade fair, an-
other official indicated a high-level
meeting of Communist leaders will
be held in East Berlin in a few
East German Premier Otto
Grotewohl said it is "very possible"
that Polish Colnmunist boss
Wladyslaw Gomulka and Czecho-,
slovak President and party boss
Antonin Novotny will meet there
with Grotewohl and Khrushchev.
Grotewohl did not say what such
talks would be about but there
was little doubt they would con-
cern a Soviet proposal that Poland
and Czechoslovakia be represented
at a foreign ministers' conference
on the German question.
Western political observers also
believed the Soviet premier might
want to give weight to his threat
to sign a separate peace treaty
with East Germany.
It was as if Khrushchev was
determined to live up to the slogan,
posted at the fair upon his arrival:
"the visit of the Soviet delegationj
is the symbol of peaceful coexis-

told the foreign businessmen whoj
were visiting at the Soviet pavilion.

Khrushchev himself proposed
the toast to Krupp, West Ger-
many's biggest steelmaker and one
of its wealthiest men.
"I wish good health to Krupp

Calls Other Leaders
Late in the day, President
Eisenhower called eight mdre key
Democrats and Republicans to his
White House study for an hour-

subjects -- the Berlin crisis and
German problems generally.
There was no White House an-

Press Secretary James C. Hagerty
confirmed in response to ques-
tions that the session was held.
Hagerty declined to provide any
details regarding what went on
at that meeting.
But Sen. Johnson told a news
conference after returning to
Capitol Hill that the approach-
ing Berlin crisis "sharpens the
necessity" for military prepared-
