The building is connected to Uni-

A second medical science unit

state legislature for construction.
Jobs Open
. em
To Stuens
Although many Ann Arbor bisi-
nesspeople indicate they have no
vacant positions, a wide variety of
jobs on and off campus remain
open to students.
A number of- fraternities and
sororities have "meal jobs" open.
Men'who wait tables are paid with
meals in such jobs.
Likewise, many students may
find employment in the dormitory
cafeterias, libraries and offices. In-
formation on other jobs may- be
obtained from the University Per-
sonnel Office, or from the Union
and League.
Managers of restaurants near
the campus varied in their re-
sponses, a few saying they had
openings for busboys or would
have in the future but many say-
ing students employed last year
would be back to fill the vacancies.
Book-store managers also replied
that student help from last year
would be ample for their needs.
Gift and clothing stores managers
indicated little need for students,
although a few sales positions for
women are available.
Gas stations near the campus
have few vacancies, according to
managers, with experienced men
required for the openings which
do exist or will later in the se-

Political Sc
Political science should take its
rightful place in contributing to
world peace in the nuclear age,
Prof. James K. Pollock, chairman
of the University's political science
department, said recently.
Addressing the International
Political Science Association meet-
ing in Rome, he said, "Natural and1
physical scientists are now the
darlings of governments. Billions
of dollars worth of fantastic
equipment are lavished upon them
and they are assisted by thou-
sands of helpers.
"But political scientists, on
whom rests the responsibility of
understanding and of making pub-
lic knowledge of power relation-
ships, are impoverished and ne-
glected." l
Prof. Pollock's keynote address
completed his three-year term as
IPSA president.
If political scientists are not to
be swallowed up in these new cos-
mic developments, we must devel-
op a broader research strategy and
have a greater exchange of in-
sights and skills," he said.
According to Prof. Pollock, the
greatest problem of our age is to
assimilate the pace of scientific
discovery into our social and gov-
ernmental processes. "Political
scientists must not be pushed
aside or overwhelmed by the de-
velopment of science and tech-
nology," he said.
"We must speed up the process
of self-improvement and devel-
opment. We must broaden our
UN Assembly
Elects Malik
As, President
The United Nations opened a
crisis-ridden General Assembly
yesterday with election of a pro-
Western Arab leader as president.
The election of Lebanese Foreign
Minister Charles Malik was an
initial victory for the United
States and its allies, but they faced
bitter debate in the weeks ahead
on fundamental issues dividing
East and West.
Malik won on the first ballot by
a vote of 45-31 over Mohammed
Ahmed Mahgoub, the Sudanese
Foreign Minister whose candidacy
in the 81-nation assembly was sup-
ported by all the Arab League
states except Lebanon.
Malik received 6 votes more
than the required majority of 39.
Four nations abstained and Israel
was absent because of the Rosh
Hashana holiday.
Ma-ik withdrew last year to per-
mit unanimous election of Sir
Leslie Munro of New Zealand.
At the last moment the Czech
delegation announced it was with-
drawing the candidacy of its vet-
eran delegate, Jiri Nosek, and sup-
porting Mahgoub. But even with
the backing of the nine-nation
Soviet bloc, Mahgoub failed to
Both candidates were from
states belonging to the Arab
League, but Malik's avowed pro-
Western stand cost him the sup-
port of many Arab states.

Eisenhower administration wanted
to avoid use of troops to enforce

know it is illegal."

"Despite the present preoccupa-
tion with rockets and missiles, in-
ner space is still more important
to us than outer space, and man

are utilized for our welfare and
not for our destruction."
