nion To Host Second Annual Campus United Nations 1 1


UNITED NATIONS--Delegates to the mock Campus United Nations will assemble in Rackham Lecture
\ Hall on March 7 to debate a resolution over'the Algerian question: The resolution was drafted by
Tunisia and it proposes to recognize Algeria as an independent country. Maynard Goldman, president
of Student Government Council, will be Secretary-General of the General Assembly and will preside
over the debate.

To promote understanding be-
tween foreign and American stu-
dents at the University, and to
promote an interest in the United
Nations and to give students an
opportunity to express their views
on an important world problem,
the Michigan Union will hold the
second annual mack United Na-
tions on March 6 and 7.
This mock United Nations will

be conducted just like its father
in New York, and University stu-
dents either born in or from for-
eign nations will act as delegates
from their respective countries in
the general assembly, Maurice Zil-
ber, '60, Union executive council-
man in charge of the Internation-
al Relations Committee, said.
No Russian Students
Only the Union of Soviet Social-
ist Republics will not have any

representative actually from it.
American students in the Russian
studies and political science de-
partments will act as delegates
from Russia.
With the exception of the Rus-
sian delegation who will express
the official stand of the U.S.S.R.,
each student will give his own
opinions and not necessarily those
of his government, Zilber said.
The proposed resolution for dis-
cussion by the . general assembly
will consider the Algerian ques-

ADC To Conduct
Dinner Meeting
At Couzens Hall
Assembly Dormitory Council
will hold its first dinner meeting
tomorrow at Couzens Hall.
This type informal meeting is
now possible due to ADC's greatly
reduced membership, Patricia
Marthenke, '59, its president, told
the group last week at its first
meeting of the semester.
A constitutional amendment
ratified in January changed mem-
bership from proportional repre-
sentation-about 60 members-to
one elected representative from
each housing unit. There are now
23 ADC representatives.
Tomorrow's discussion will focus
on problems involved in women
changing residence halls for ,the
fall semester and tentative plans
for expansion of women's cooper-
ative housing, Miss Marthenke

geria is a great threat to world
peace,, we resolve:
"1) To recognize the right of
the Algerian people to self-deter-
mination and independence.
"2) To provide, under the aus-
pices of the United Nations, for a
two-year transitional period dur-
ing which the administration will
be transferred from the French
authorties to the Provisional Gov-
ernment of the Republic of Al-
geria, being the only representa-
tive of the Algerian people.
"3) That the future government
of Algeria is to respect the rights
of all minority groups in Algeria."

This committee, which consists

play at Rackham during the ses-
sions and it will then be put on
display at the Union.
All students of the University
are invited to attend any or all
of the proceedings without charge,
Zilber said. Although other col-
leges and universities have mock
United Nations sessions, the Uni-
versity is unique in that students
actually represent the countries
from where they come, with the
exception of the Union of Soviet
Socialist Republics as there is no
Russian student on the Univer-
sity campus, he continued.
The entire proceedings has the
official backing of the speech,
