LANSING--The State House of Representatives appointed a 10-
man bipartisan committee yesterday in a final attempt to find a
compromise solution to the state's financial crisis.
Both parties called caucuses for 10 a.m. today to discuss the com-
promise the committee may have found in its closed session yesterday.

Representatives of the women of

the merits of spring versus fall

deliberation yeserday.
Plans to present to Student Gov-
ernment Council the Assembly-
Panhellenic recommendation re-
instating of fall rush were aban-
doned when it failed to receive a
majority vote from the independ-
ent housing unit representatives,
although it was supported by 20
of the 22 affiliated delegates at
the Women's Senate meeting,
The resolution was opposed by
Collegiate Sorosis, Pi Beta Phi and
12 of the 19 representatives of in-
dependent women. Voting proce-
dure called for' majority votes
from both groups for acceptance
of any motion.
Present Motion
Mary Tower, '59, president of
Panhellenic Association, said last
night that she intends to present
a motion to SGC favoring fall
rush. Her decision hadvbeen veri-
fied by the affiliate opinion ex-
pressed yesterday, she commented.
Assembly Association Preside;t,
Pat Marthenke, '59, announced she
would be "representing the ma-
jority opinion of independent
houses as expressed by them,"
speaking and voting in favor of
spring rush at SGC. She said she
felt it her responsibility to "act
as a representative of her organi-
zation" in this case.
Much of the discussion centered
on where the pledge would place
her allegiance-with the residence
hall or the sorority-in campus
and house activities.
Improves Activities
"Fall rush has been even better
for our activities," an Angell House
delegate noted, because of in-
creased student enthusiasm at the
beginning of the school year.
A Pi Beta Phi representative
countered with the argument that
spring rush gives the new sorority
member more time to adjust to
house living and the freshmen
time to "become a little more
sophisticated and more decided
about her values."
To Debate
Fall Rush
Student Government Council
will re-evaluate the question of de-
ferred rushing for women at its
meeting today.
Mary Tower, '59, president of
Panhellenic Association,'will pre-
sent the motion asking for re-
institution of fall rush for women.
The Council decided on a two-
year trial period for spring rush
in 1957.
Debate at the meeting, which is
set for 7:30 p.m. in the Union Ball-
room, will be arranged so that
"anyone who has anything to say"
will be able to do so, according to
Mort Wise, '59, executive vice-
president of SGC.
Wise explained that plans call
for one constituent to speak for
and one member against the mo-
tion in open debate. The debate
will be for a period of one hour;
speakers will alternately talk for
or against the motion, and each
speaker may talk for only three
The Council will also consider a
motion condemning the loyalty

ter, said she found "very little"
discrimination against dark-
kinned students in her work of
finding housing for them.
Difficulties Arise
Some difficulties arise over the
living habits of some students, and
"naturally" it is harder to find
housing for dark-skinned students,
she continued.
Republican mayoral candidate
Ce'cil O. Creal said he thought
time and education should be used
in handling the problem.
"We must avoid the pitfalls of
attempting to move to decisions
which are in advance of what the
public is willing to accept," he de-
clared. "Time will cure this prob-
lem best."
Lloyd M. Ives, the Democratic
candidate for mayor, called for
"good will, intelligence and cour-
age" in handling the problem.
Out of Partisan Politics
He said he believed "the basic
moral wrong inherent in racial
discrimination carries the issue out
of the realm of partisan politics.
"We must not, however, be
afraid to fight the reactionary ele-
ments of the community who will

Meanwhile, western diplomats
studied Khrushchev's proposal in
a speech Monday that Allied and
Russian troops, or some rieutral
force, remain in West Berlin to
preserve its independence as a so-
called free city.
West Berlin Mayor Willy
Brandt rushed to reject Khrush-
