f; GOP Picks
Meeing Site
By The Associated Press
The Republicans elected a new,
national chairman and picked a
1960 convention site yesterday.
Sen. Thruston B. Morton (R-
Ky.), the choice of P r e s i d e n t
Dwight D. Eisenhower, was named
to succeed retiring Meade Alcorn
as chairman.
The choice of Chicago as con-
vention sight occasioned no sur-
prise to Chicagoans. They had ex-
pected to host the convention in
the centennial year of the Repub-
lican Convention, held also in
Chicago, which nominated Abra-
ham Lincoln for President.
Stress Central Location
Chicagoans, in presenting their
case to the committee; emphasized
Chicago's central location which
would both equalize traveling
costs and be in neutral ground be-
' tween New York, home of Goy.,
Nelson Rockefeller and California,
that of Vice-President Richard M.
Nixon, the two potential contend-
ers for the nomination.
Also stressed was the fact that
Chicago has plenty of hotel rooms
,and a hall that has been used
three tifnes for conventions.
Select Attack
The convention will be the
thirteenth Republican gathering!
held in the city. The Democrats
pave met there nine times.
The committee selected "bud-
get-balancing" as its campaign
battle cry.
Sen. Morton, the new chairman,
said he was a "middle of the road
Republican" and promised that
he would be "absolutely neutral'
in the contest between Nixon and
Said Acceptable
He added that friends of both
men had told him he was accept-
able to them after he- had been
asked by the President to take the
party reins on Alcorn's retirement
to return to his private law prac-
He also backed the Eisenhower
administration, saying he had
supported its programs as much
as any member of Congress:
Pleading for party unity, Sen.
Morton said the Republicans in
1960 are going to have "to run on
the philosophy of the Administra-

time court is closed for the night
or the weekend, they may be taken
to jail until their case can be dis-
Forfeit Bond
If they can post bond, he said,'
a date will be set for them to ap-
pear in court. If they fail to ap-
pear, they forfeit their bond, which
in most cases is equal to their fine
and costs calculated on the hy-,
pothesis that they are guilty.
Some, however, will be required
to go to court regardless whether
they can post bond.
Some persons unable to pay
their fines may have to serve jail
terms. In Municipal Court Friday,
one man was remanded to jail
for four days when he could not
pay his fines. He had $80 in fines
on 20 unpaid tickets.
Reminders Sent
Delinquent ticket - holders are
sent reminders that they have not
settled their cases. If they ignore
the reminders, they are sent a card
warning them that they will be
arrested unless they settle prompt-
If seven more days pass, Munici-
pal Court Judge Francis L. O'Brien
signs a warrant for their arrest,
and it is turned over to the police
for service.
The four-man squad is expected
rapidly to deplete the estimated
2,000 traffic warrants now on file.

Halls Ban
University Residence Halls have
ruled that .members and pledges
of colonies will not be allowed to
apply for readmission to dormi-
At present there are two colonies
at the University, Tau Epsilon Phi
and Alpha Kappa Lambda.
Dean of Men Walter B. Rea said
his office and the Residence Hall
system decided it would be better
if members of groups trying for
fraternity status were not in the
dormitories. "It disrupts the pat-
tern of the residence halls," he
No New Policy
It was pointed out that a new
policy has not been constructed.
Herman Besselink, resident direc-
tor of East Quadrangle said it has
long been a rule that members and
pledges of fraternities are not
eligible to reapply for housing in
the residence hall system. He
called this action a "reinterpreta-
tion of the old rule."
Rea said he did not expect the
decision to come before the Resi-
dence Hall Board of Governors un-
less the members of the two
colonies requested it. He said the
men may request~ special permis-
sion to remain in the dormitories.
Michael Risman, '60, president
of the Tau Epsilon Phi group, said
his organization had made "no
definite plans" as to purchasing a
house or contesting the Univer-
sity's action.
It was reported that both col-
onies have been looking at houses
suitable for fraternity living since
the extended interpretation was
Groups Have Funds
,Assistant Dean of Men William'
Cross said he expected both groups
to apply for full fraternity status
"sometime next year." He re-
marked that both groups have
funds with which to purchase or
rent houses. Alpha Kappa Lambda
has resources from the sale of its
old house in 1940.
Cross commented that the fra-
ternity system was in favor of the
One official who declined the
use of his name said he felt the
fraternities favored the move be-
cause the members of the colonies
were in a position to contact fresh-
men in the residence halls, while
fraternity men were not. "This
gives the colonies an unfair ad-
vantage," he remarked.
John Hale, Senior Resident
Director of the Men's Residence
Halls, could not be contacted for

A budding ichthyologist and a
petite Ann Arbor High School
senior walkedofflast night with
top honors at the first Southeast-
ern Michigan Science Fair.
The budding ichthyologist -
one who studies fish-was award-
ed a first place prize of an -all-
expense-paid trip to the National
Science Fair later this year.
Michael Washburn, a 15-year-
old from Saline High School,
proudly exhibited a dissected carp
beneath a sign bearing the in-
scription "Induced Ovulation and
the Anatomy of the Fish."
Studies Carbon
The petite senior, Marilynn Nel-
son, won an identical first prize
for her study of Carbon 14 in
photosynthesis. The two winners
were chosen from 156 youthful
scientists exhibiting their work in
Waterman Gymnasium yesterday.
Hundreds of curious parents,
scientists and University students
operated a radio-controlled boat,
gazed at a high-voltage climbing
arc, and studied a comparison of
fish and frog brains.
Ichthyologist Washburn took
time out last night to comment on
his first success in science. "My
parents own a fish hatchery out
in Saline," he said. "That's where
I got the carp."
Takes Time
"Took me quite a long time to
set up the exhibit . . . about six
months," he commented, nodding
toward the slightly dried-out fish.
Miss Nelson stood before her
Carbon 14 exhibit carefully la-!
beled "Danger - Radiation." "I
plan to take up more science when
I enter college," she said. "But I
don't know just exactly what kind,
yet," Miss Nelson continued.
The young scientists' displays
represented the area's first at-
tempt at a science fair. Some 24
organizations backed the exhibi-
tion with Prof. Henry J. Gomberg
of the nuclear engineering depart-
ment and assistant director of the
Phoenix Project as chairman of
the two-day Fair.

West Calls
Policy Reaffirms
Big Four Powers'
Postwar Agreement
By The Associated Press
t The United States will urge its
Western Allies next week to de-
mand of Russia that East as well
as Weft Berlin be embraced in any
new international plan for the
United States officials said yes-
terday this government has de-
cided it is essential for the U'nited
States, Britain, France aind West
Germany to follow an "all-Berlin
policy" in negotiating with the
Soviets at the foreign ministers
meeting due to open at Geneva
a month from yesterday.
An "all-Berlin policy," tiese
authorities said, means that the
West would insist that the Big
Four powers accept anew an obli-
gation to hold Berlin in trust
.pending its restoration as the
capital of a reunited Germany. ,-
Reaffirm Agreement
In effect, that would be a re-
affirmation of the postwar agree-
ment on Berlin among Russia, the
United States, Britain and France.
Officials of the four Western
governments will meet in London
next week to resume negotiations
on development of policies.
Meanwhile, in Edinburgh, United
States Ambassador John Hay
Whitney advised the Russians lasts
night they will get nowhere in
trying to divide the Western Allies
on Berlin.
He said Soviet Premier Nikita,
Khrushchev foolishly thought the
free world might yield to his pro-
posals for turning West Berlin into
a demilitarized city independent
of the West.
"Now Khrushchev has heard the
West say in effect that no man
is an island, entire of himself, but
rather a part of all mankind-
that a loss to fredom anywhere
is a loss to all free men," Whitney
told the Edinburgh Press Club.
Avoid Exploitation h
"I think It can be assumed that
this Russian diplomacy of again
attempting to divide the Allies
will not succeed," he said.
However, in London, the -British
government was reported highly
concerned about a worsening of'
British-German relation.
Though the government itself is
determined to avoid an open fight
with the Germans, preferring to
settle differences quickly at the
-spcoming foreign ministers' con-
ference at Geneva, the British
press has been building up a pic-
ture of the two allies at logger,
heads politically and emotionally.
