Russian Leader Speaks at Rally
In East Berlin Before Huge Crowd
BERLIN (I)-Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev came to Berlin
last night and demanded the withdrawal of Allied troops from this
former German capital.
He declared, "order must be brought to Berlin." Then he went on
to define that order as acceptance of the Soviet proposal to transform
West Berlin into a so-called demilitarized free city.
Demands Recognition of East Germany
Khrushchev also renewed his demands for the signing of a World,
War II peace treaty that would give recognition to East Germany as a
state. "We are waiting for an answer (from the Western powers) to

Of Institute
Special to The Daily
DETROIT- A noted University
physicist urged last night approval
of the proposed Institute of Science
and Technology as a partial solu-
tion to Michigan's economic woes.
Prof. H. R. Crane of the physics
department said here Michigan
must multiply its scientific man-
power at least four times if the
state is ever to enter the "big
league in space-age science and
If established at the University,
the Institute would draw top sci-
entists from all parts of the coun-
try for advanced research work.
Prof. Crane predicted an invest-
ment of $5 million in the Institute
over a five-year period "could
bring $50 million from the federal
government for research projects
and $500 million in new industry"
for the state.
Plan Rejected Earlier
- The Institute proposal is now
before the Legislature as one point
n of a package program to stabilize
Michigan's economy. It was re-
jected by the Legislature last year
when University capital outlay re-
quests were trimmed to a min-
m n-mum .,
"We are perfectly aware that
right now funds are next to non-
existent," Prof. Crane said in his
speech before Governor Williams'
birthday celebration at the Ma-
sonic Temple. "But sometimes
when a person is in a tight spot
he finds it wise to put even his
last nickel on something that may
help pull him out," he continued.
"I sincerely hope that the
strengthening of science and tech-
nology in the state will be classed
in that category," he emphasized.
Need 'Concentration'
"If there are not enough sci-
entists, and scientists of diverse
enough interests, new ideas just
won't come;" Prof. Crane said.
"Scientists go where there are
communities of scientists; con-
tracts go where there is established
skill, and most important, the very
advances themselves are hatched
at the places of the greatest con-
centrations of. experts," he added.
"It's a circle that is hard to
break," Prof. Crane emphasized.
The noted physicist said if more
scientists and engineers came to
the state, Michigan could probably
lead the world in the development
of highly automated production
Automation To Be Challenge
"The automation of ten years
from now, I am convinced, will be
so complex and ingenious that it
will challenge the most highly
trained scientific experts in the
"I am also convinced that with-
in a short span of years, most of
the world's manufactured goods
will be turned out in highly auto-
mated factories, -" herevef those
factories are located," Prof. Crane

"There is no law that says those
factories are going to be in Michi-
gan, but by meeting the challenge
we can see to it that they are," he

Rush Plan
Spring rush was favored by 21
of the 30 housemothers and presi-
dents of independent women's
houses who replied to a question-
naire sent out this spring by the
Assembly - Panhellenic Rushing
Study committee.
The 28 sorority housemothers
and presidents who answered un-
animously favored fall rush, ac-
cording to the report released yes-
terday by the committee.
Based on this year's rushing
program, replies from the majori-
ty of independent houses favoring
spring rush listed more time for
adjustment to college life, better
participation in house activities
and more dormitory unity as
Weather Negative Factor
The six houses favoring fall
rush felt that the weather was
better early in the year and it
was more advantageous to finish
the entire rushing program as
soon as possible.
Three primary reasons for fall
rush were listed by the 28 sorori-
ties which replied. They pointed
out bad weather conditions in
February leading to sickness, a
"fresher" spirit among women in
the fall and the scholastic advan-
tage in rushing early in the se-

four noted less.

Twenty of the replying sorority

MADISON - Michigan's sopho-
more-studded track team got "im-
possible" performances from its
ranks as it upset Illinois for the
Big Ten title here yesterday in one
of the greatest comebacks in Mich-
igan Conference history..
The Wolverines piled up a 71-
point total by placing in 14 of the
15 'events while the defending
champion, Illinois, could compile
only 48.
Far back in third place was Ohio
State with 25%, followed by In-
diana, 25%/; Wisconsin, 16%;
Michigan State 13/4; Purdue 104;
Iowa, 4; and Northwestern 2z.
'Clutch' Performance
"Every Michigan man did great
in the qualifying round (Friday),
then came out and did better in
the finals," said Coach Don Can-
ham, who told reporters that they
would never see another clutch
performance like it.
Phil Diamond of Ann Arbor, one
of America's outstanding track
authorities and a follower of Big
Ten meets for 41 years, said it was
"an impossible feat according to
the form sheet." His post-qualify-
ing round figures show that peak
performances would result in a
maximum of 60 points for the

Pharmacy College Receives Construction Grant

The pharmacy college has .received a $322,000 grant from the
National Institute of Health toward the construction of an $800,000
research building.
The University is planning to start construction on the four-story
building this summer. Its completion is set for the summer of 1960.
The new structure, which is to be erected on the Church Street
side of the East Medical Building in the area now occupied by a parking
lot, is the first building at any university to be used solely for pharma-
ceutical research.
Additional Sums Pledged
Dean Tom D. Rowe of the pharmacy college said that the re-
maining $478,000 for the building will be given by foundations, pharma-
ceutical manufacturers, alumni and friends of the University.
He commented that much of the additional needed money had
already been pledged, and that the rest of it should be pledged within
the next few months.
The building will be devoted almost entirely to laboratories, ac-
