GOP Nominates
Two for Regent
Matthaei, Burgess To Seek.Election.;
Compromise Tax Plan Voted Down
Special to The Daily
DETROIT -Two actions of the Republican State Nominating
Convention may have long-range effects on the University.
Frederick C. Matthei and Mrs. Charles R. Burgess were chosen
as the two GOP nominees for the positions to be vacated by Regents
Roscoe O. Bonisteel of Ann Arbor and Leland I. Doan of Midland.
The terms of Regents Bonisteel and Doan will expire Dec. 31.
The Platform Committee repudiated a compromise .tax proposal
worked out Friday night by members of Pre-Convention Platform
Committee and the forces of Paul Bagwell, defeated 1958 gubernatorial
candidate and "Titular Head" of
the party.
The compromise asked that a
referendum be put on the April 6
ballot asking for the necessary
Constitutional authority to raise
the sales tax rate, but if the Demo-
crats block this, there should be
a flat-rate income tax.
Bagwell Favors Policy
. Most Republican leaders con-
sidered the fiat-rate income tax
provision crucial because the
' chances of the Democrats allowing
the sales-tax referendum are
considered negligible.
--On the basis of this compromise,
Bagwell prepared his speech which
advocated this policy. But the next
morning, the official Convention
Resolutions Committee would not
go along with the compromise.
AA While they were haggling, Bagwell
MRS. CHARLES BURGESS gave his speech and received a
Regental nominee rousing ovation.
Ignore Income Tax
Later in the afternoon, the Res-
B ring N a e olutions Committee reached their
decision: they would leave out all
references to an income tax. Their
(hi!Cl onu-uaI~uw li recommendations vere accepted
without debate.

HAVANA (A)-- A speedup in
Cuba's social and economic house-
cleaning appears certain, with
Fidel Castro taking over as Prime
The 32-year-old leader of the
revolution that unseated Dictator
Fulgencio Batista formally as-
sumes the post of chief of govern-
ment tomorrow. He then is ex-
pected to:
1) Push the recovery of stolen
money and property illegally ac-
quired by the past regime.
2) Speed agrarian reform by dis-
tributing government land to peas-
ants; inaugurate a program to ease
3) Hasten a reorganization of
the government and the army.
To Appoint Brother
Castro has served as commander
in chief under President Manuel
Urrutia, his hand-picked choice as
chief of state. Now Castro's mili-
tary job will pass to his 27-year-
old brother Raul, the deputy com-
Informed Cubans said the cabi-
net's resignation Friday and Cas-
tro's decision to take the Prime
Ministry were due-to these fac-
tors: The young revolutionaries
who swept into powerwith a broad
reform program thought the cabi-
net was moving too slowly.
Castro had been forced to take
more and more responsibilities out-
side his army job because every-
one in Cuba with a grievance
sought him out.
Wishes Castro Well
In resigning as Prime Minister,
Jose Miro Cardona wished Castro
well. Castro is expected to retain
some of the ministers.
The newspaper "Excelsior" said
the split over the pace of the revo-
lutionary program became evident
in mid-January when Miro Car-
dona offered his resignation.
The change in the Prime Min-
istry had a generally popular re-
action. Messages of support
streamed into Castro's headquar-
Castro faces a sea of problems,
including labor demands accumu-
lated during seven years of Ba-
tista dictatorship. Under Batista,
workers were not allowed to strike.
'U' Reports
rise in Gifts
A 50 per cent increase in capital
gifts to the Universi~ty was an-
nounced by the Development
Council yesterday.
Gift collected over the past year
totaled more than $358,000, Gil-
bert E. Bursley, assistant director
for capital gifts said. Almost half
the funds obtained, $170,000, were
used for scholarships, fellowships
and student aid. The remaining
funds were about equally divided
between special equipment for
faculty members and research
grants, Bursley said.
Donors in the program includ-
ed individuals who were not alum-
ni, corporations and foundations.
The program does not include be-
quests made to the University.
This year's total compares to
$246,000 in 1957 and $241,000 in

Drop Game
To Spartans
103-91 Defeat Dims
Michigan Title Hopes
Special to the Daily
EAST LANSING - Michigan's
Big Ten basketball title hopes were
virtually buried by a Michigan
State avalanche here last night.
The league-leading Spartans
poured 103 points through the
nets, setting a new team mark in
the process. And along with the
Wolverines' 91, a new Jenison
Fieldhouse record for total points
in one game was established.
Michigan Drops
The victory allowed MSU to pull
further away from the Conference
pack with a 7-2 record. Michigan
dropped from third to fifth, and
now apparently will have to be
content with fighting it out for
the runner-up spot.
Michigan entertains Iowa at
home tomorrow night in an effort
to regain the winner's column
after dropping its last two games.
Certainly not indicated by the
final outcom was the fact that
the score was tied or changed
hands ten times in the first half
before State increased its pace.
Michigan State, playing a relent-
less brand of ball under the boards,
out-rebounded the Wolverines, 73-
50, and therein lies the telltale
Michigan State broke up a
rough see-saw battle late in the
first half and kept on rolling after
intermission to quickly pull away.
The Wolverines relinquished a
38-37 lead, the last one they were
to own, with 3:44 remaining in the
first stanza.
State's Horace Walker and Mich-
igan's Terry Miller exchanged
buckets to make it 41-40. From
there the hosts added six more to
round out the first half and then
blasted out of the dressing rooni
with a scoring burst that demol-
ished their guests.
Green Leads MSU
With everyone' contributing a
large share, but Johnny Green's
rebounding the real sparkler, State
opened up its lead to 64-45 in only
six and a half minutes,
A few exchanges of baskets and
another flurry soon gave the Spar-
tans their largest margin of the
night, 76-0.
With the game out of danger,
MSU Coach Forddy Anderson
pulled Green (who received his
first of two standing ovations).
Michigan slowly began to come
to life again and'started slicing the
State margin little by little. A
nine-point splurge brought the
Wolverines to a 94-81 deficit, but
the closest they could finally come
was the 12-point margin of the
final score.

South Korea Opposes Repatriation Plan

Decided 1

SEOUL (P)-The South Korean
government declared yesterday it
is resolved to smash the Japanese
plan to repatriate Koreans to the
Communist-ruled northern part of
the country.
The Korean Red Cross also
strongly denounced the plan aiid
called on Red Cross workers every-
where to oppose what it called de-
portation into Communist slavery.

Set Honors
In Classics
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the fifth
in a series of articles concerning the
departmental honors program of the
literary colleges.)
"At this time, there is no honors
program in the department of
classical studies, because there are
not enuogh concentrates in this
field," Prof. Gerald F. Else of the
classical studies department said.
"However, we have a plan set
up for future students who are
interesteduinrand qualified to en-
ter the honors program," he add-
The main purpose of the honors
course would be to give honors
students a better view of classical
literature and culture as a whole
than they could get from other
courses. Another purpose would be
to enable and require superior stu-
dents to read more classical liter-
atire in the original Latin and
Plan Two Courses
"There will be two courses given
for juniors and seniors. Each
course would last for one year,"
Prof. Else said. For this reason
the work must be flexible and in-
dividual, he noted.
It would be beneficial to inelude
both juniors and seniors in one
course as they could all learn
from each other, he added. These
courses would be handled in sem-
inar fashion and each would pro-
ide three hours credit.
In the senior year the student
would write a paper dealing with
some aspect of classical culture,
cr the student may translate a
work into English from Latin or
Report on Progress
"The seniors will give progress
reports to the rest of the group.
These reports will be relevant and
interesting to the others," Prof.
Else said.
"The Far Eastern departmental
program has only a senior course,
which has been running for two
years," Prof. Joseph K. Yamagiwa
of the Far Eastern Language and
Literature department said.

announced its intention, of ship-
ping to North Korea thousands of
Koreans resident in Japan who
ask to go, and has asked the Inter-
national Red Cross to supervise
and carry out the transfer.
Safe Passage Refused
President Syngman Rhee's gov-
ernment has announced it will not
guarantee safe passage to repa-
triation ships. - a hint that it
might intercept the ships with
naval force.
It charges that Koreans apply-
ing for repatriation to North Korea
are being lured by Communist
promises of good jobs.
South Korean officials say they
cannot make such promises in a
free economy, but that about a
million Koreans returned here
since World War II live as well
as other Koreans.
Crowds Demonstrate
The controversy has disrupted
negotiations to establish normal
relations with Japan.
Crowds chanting anti-Japanese
slogans yesterday demonstrated
against the repatriation, and the
cabinet, after a third emergency
session in as many days, issued a
statement explaining its position.
It made these points:
To Prevent Repatriation
1) For security reasons it can-
not accept Japan's policy because
it would expand the labor force
Try To Deny
Negroes Vote
BATON ROUGE (P) - Louisi-
ana, defiant of possible federal
intervention, yesterday was busy
trying to erase more than 100,000
Negroes from vote registration
Segregation leaders have enlist-
ed legislative, executive and judi-
cial branches of state government
in seeking rigid enforcement of
voter registration laws.
They said the United States
Civil Rights Commission will have
no basis for action if the laws are
enforced impartially.
State Sen. W. M. Rainach,
Louisiana segregation chief, said
some white voters may also be
chopped off, but added many
would-be Negro voters would be
eliminated for each white person
"You don't have to discrimin-
ate against Negroes," said Rain-
ach, chairman of the legislative
"watc dog" committee on segre-
gation. "Nature already has dis-
criminated against them."
"A large number of Negroes
just can't pass the tests for regis-
tration. The tests are based on
intelligence, not education, and
intelligence is something that is
bred into people through long

and military manpower of North
Korea - technically at war with
South Korea since 1950.
2) 'the government is ready and
resolved to use every possible
means to prevent the repatriation,
and Japan will be responsible for
the consequences.
3) All friendly countries will
support South Korea's legitimate
actions to protect its sovereignty.
4) The Japanese move is a be-
trayal of the free world and plays
into the hands of the Communists
who are trying to force recogni-
tion of "two Koreas."
South Korea claims it is the
only legitimate Korean govern-
ment and all Koreans in Japan
are its citizens.
5) The principle of free choice
of residence cannot be used as a
guise for' forcibly deporting Kore-
ans into Communist slavery.
Iran Policy
C riticized
MOSCOW (P-Pravda yestea-
day apparently began a new round
of the Soviet propaganda offensive
against Iran.
The Communist Party newspa-e
per spoke of the "dire conse-
quences" to its southern neighbor
for following a pro-United States
Under an old treaty, the Soviet
Union has the right to march
troops into Iran if the Russians
feel their southern border is im-
periled. But diplomats here see
nothing like that ahead.
One diplomat predicted the new
campaign of denunciation would
be coupled with intensified en-
couragement of Soviet sympa-
thizers and dissidents in Iran.
Pravda was following up =a So-
viet government statement of last
Thursday on the collapse of nego-
tiations for a Soviet-Iranian non-
aggression pact in Tehran this
The Kremlin accused Iran of
following a "two-faced, insincere
policy." It said the United States
intervened to prevent conclusion
of the pact, and worked for a

Of Strategy
In Cold War
Secretary of State
Ill at Crucial Time
In Western Dealings
sidelined the chief architect and
director of United States foreign
policy at a crucial time in Western
.dealings with Russia over the
future of Germany and security in
Secretary of State John Foster,
Dulles has held the reins of di-
plomacy and power in the conduct
of international affairs in his own
hands more completely perhaps
than any other Secretary of State
in modern times.
For six years, with President
Dwight D. Eisenhower's doopera-
tion, he has made the great deci-
sions of strategy in the cold war.
Undersecretary of State Chris-
tian A. Herter thus faces a formid-
able task in now taking over con-
trol for at least the' period of
Dulles' illness.
Meeting Uncertain Now
One of the immediate results of
the cancer diagnosis, announced
yesterday, is to render uncertain a
meeting of Western foreign minis-
ters tentatively scheduled for Paris
the middle of next month.
Beyond that it is extremely
doubtful that Dulles will be well
enough to take part in a scheduled
Conference of Foreign Ministers of,
the 15-nation NATO council her@
April 2-4.
May Delay Conference
And the possibility arises, al--
though some State Department
authorities now discount it, that
preparations for a Big Four For-
eign Ministers Conference with
Russia, possibly the conference it-
self, may be delayed because of
Dulles' condition.-
Regardless of Dulles' condition,
the next few months promise to
be a period of intensive diplomatic
activity comparable to that which
led up to the Geneva summit con-
ference in 1955. I-
Indeed, there is a strong belief
among top officials here that a
summit conference may be held
later this year. Prime Minister
Harold Macmillan of Britain, fac-
ing Parliamentary elections within
a year's time, is reported particu-
larly interested in arranging a

Wolverines Defeated, 7-3, by Gopher Squad

Michigan's hockey team could
easily have played its game with
Minnesota here last night to the
tune of the once popular song,
"Same Old Saturday Night."
The Golden Gophers rolled to
a 7-3 win over the hapless Wol-
verines in a contest which was
indeed reminiscent of other Sat-
urday nights at the Coliseum this
This familiar format saw Coach
Al Renfrew's Maize and Blue clad
charges dominate play in the first
period, slow down somewhat in
the second stanza, and fall apart
completely in the final period.
High Scoring Gopher
The Gophers' third-period flur-

drew a hand for its spirited play
as it left the ice.
Mattson Scores
After this change in lines, the
Wolverines finally drew first
blood. Gary Mattson took a pass
from Don Gourley in front of the
goal mouth and laid it in before
Vaia had a chance to defend, for
a 1-0 lead at 7:29.
Not content to rest on a one-
goal lead, Michigan continued to
pressure, and kept the play in
the Minnesota defensive zone, and
only brilliant stops by the Gopher
netminder denied Renfrew's ag-
gregation a two or three goal lead
as they left the ice.
Playing a sharp checking and
passing game, the Wolverines
seemed a new team compared to

housing administration.
Lease Policy Considered
Because of a' number of corn
plaints concerning the apartmen
presented to the Graduate Stude
Council and the attempted evi
tion of a student last year, tY
plan for the association w,
evolved, Burch said.
A proposed change in 'Unive
sity policy regarding the termin
tion of leases will be consider
at the meeting. The group wi
seek to change the requireme
for signing housing leases frc
August 31 to August 31.
"Many students finish school
February, but are responsible f
leases until the following Au
ust," Burch said.
