Weather Tests Run
Brode said he is satisfied Rus-

weather control. But, replying to
a question by Rep. Fulton, he
added he sees no prospect that
the Soviets might break through,
for example, with the ability to
convert the United States into a
desert by diverting rain.
Such huge scale weather con-
trol, he said, will be "extremely
difficult, if not impossible" ever
to accomplish, and so far as is
known, no one ilow has a program
actively seeking such results. 1
Note Rain Increase
But, he said, "wringing clouds"
by seeding them with crystals
which start the rain-making cycle
has resulted in this country in in-
creases up to 10 or 5 per cent in
precipitation in areas where the
extra rainfall was valuable.
The National Science Founda-
tion, he said, is now supporting
two cloud seeding programs, near
Tucson, Ariz. and Santa Barbara,
Testimony indicated the method
of seeding using silver iondide,
either in smoke wafted up from
the ground, or from aircraft, now
is in most favor among United
States rainmaking scientists.

summoned yesterday to consult on
Secretary of State John Foster
Dulles' illness.
At -the Capitol Senators joined
in silent prayer for his recovery.
The stricken Dulles, suffering
from a recurrence of the cancer
for which he was operated on in
November, 1956, which was dis-
covered during a hernia operation
Friday, sat in a chair in his quar-
ters at the Army's Walter Reed
Hospital, for about 30 minutes.
Maj. Gen. Leonard b. Heaton,

from Gen. Heaton, State Depart-
ment press officer Lincoln White

Dulles' glandular cancer in the
abdomen is expected to begin this
White said Dr. Gordon Zubrod,
clinical director of the National
Cancer Institute of the National
Institutes of Health, was called in
to help with the treatment- and
presumably to try to determine the
extent of the malignancy.
At the capitol, congressional
leaders praised Dulles for the con-
duct of his secretaryship and, in
the Senate, the membership stood
in silent prayer for his recovery.

Discuss Planils
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the sixth
in a series of articles concerning the
departmental honors program of the
literary colleges.)
In the second semester of the
senior year, the honors students
in the psychology, sociology and
political science departments meet
together to discuss a book which
is meaningful to all three groups.
"While the senior honors psy-
chology program is one of the
oldest 'in the college, the junior
program began last year," Prof. E.
Lowell Kelly, chairman of the psy-
chology department, said.
This recent program begins in
the second semester because most
students often do not decide their
major until then and consequently
are indefinite about majoring in
psychology, Prof. Kelly added.
The purpose of the psychology
honors program, Prof. Kelly said,
is to give the most highly qualified
students in terms of record and
interest a chance to meet in a
small seminar group to do research
and a thesis.

In his victory statement, Creal

Dr. House had no comment.

The newspaper Al Ahram de-
clared yesterday the Israelis even-

Jewish immigrants and that some
Arab governments are discussing
joint action to head off such an
influx. The current population of
Israel, opposed throughout the
Arab sphere, is about two million.
One proposal under discussion,
Al Ahram said, is an appeal to
Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev
to stop the emigration of Jews
from East European countries to
Israel. This would be coupled with
a notification to President Dwight

Five points by George Lee in just 34 seconds last night iced a
hard-fought Michigan basketball win over Iowa, 90-86, at Yost Field
The victory lifted the Wolverines past the .500 mark in Big Ten
play (5-4), moved them into undisputed fourth place in the Con-
ference and kept their title hopes faintly alive.
Reverse Decision
Michigan's win also allowed it to reverse a four-point defeat it
suffered earlier this month at the hands of these same Hawkeyes,
Lee's splurge began with only 1:18 remaining and Michigan be-
hind, 84-83. It climaxed a Wolverine comback made necessary after
it had blown a lead that once stretched to 14 points.
The burly senior co-captain, who led all scorers with 30 points,
cashed in a layup to send the Wolverines ahead, 85-84. Fouled in the
process 1'y -Iowa's Dave Gunther, Lee made the charity toss to give
his team a two-point bulge.
But Hawkeye reserve guard Bob Carpenter, who paced the visi-
tors' late surge, sank a jump shot 15 seconds later to knot the count,
Lee wasted no time in' retaliating and pumped in the game-
winning bucket with a bare 44 seconds left.
Lovell Farris added two free throws in the closing seconds to put
the Michigan lead out of danger.
Lee's performance ranked among his most outstanding of the
season and his 30 points was a personal high. He became the third
Wolverine to hit the 30 mark this season.
M. C. Burton, who set the all-time Michigan high of 38 against
Butler, notched 22 points last night, while John Tidwell, who made
37 against Wisconsin, hurt the Hawkeyes with 15.
