Yale Singing Group
Tours' Soviet Union


Returned recently from a five
week tour of Russia, members of
the Yale Russian Chorus reported
a warm reception from the Rus-
sians who gathered to hear them
sing Russian and American songs
in the streets and parks of the
Soviet Union.
No exact schedule had been set
up for the chorus. This left -the
Yale singers free to attract crowds
and then speak to the gatherings
on politics and cultural matters.
All the singers spoke Russian.
Describing the trip on their return
home Thursday, they said they left
with a feeling that they had made
some contribution toward a better
understanding of the United
Return With Souvenirs
Russian fur hats and other sou-
venirs which the singers brought
back. also indicated a bettered
American understanding of the
Soviet Union.
Charles Neff, 24, a second year
graduate student at Yale, said,
"The idea was a shot in the dark.
But the crowds came to us, to
listen to the songs and then they
began to question 'us. They were
very enthusiastic. While -some
were critical, they 'were never
Christopher Bingham, president
of the Yale Russian Club, of which
the chorus is an outgrowth, de-
scribed the reception at the street
gatherings as "very warm,"
However, he said, there were
some things that the singers had
difficulty in seeing, such as ob-
taining permission to attend lec-
tures at the Moscow University.
This permission, he said, came'
only on the last day of the visit.
Musical director of the group,
Donald Mickiewicz, said he thought
the experience had brought the;
cultural exchange idea to the level
of the man on the street.

Brand New Dam, Seaway Open

A new lake has opened that'
will eliminate the major road-
block between ocean-going ships
and the Great Lakes.
The St. Lawrence Seaway, a
billion dollar dream become a re-
ality, opened this summer with
the explosion of thirty tons of
dynamite. A brand new dam
closed its sluice gates and the In-
ternational Rapids of the St.
Lawrence River were swallowed
up in a new lake.
The partially completed hydro-
electric plant at the lake's mouth
will start shooting power into
homes and industrial plants in
both Canada and the United

Predictions are that the seaway
will one day open the Great Lakes
to ocean-going commerce as far
as Duluth, Minnesota. New indus-
try, new people, and tourists in
flocks are expected to be offspring
of the St. Lawrence Valley and
the Great Lakes region.
The opening of the Interna-
tional Rapids, which extend from
Ogdensburg, New York to Mas-
sena, New York, opened Lake On-
tario to large ocean-going ships.

U' Prof essor
To New Work
^Prof. William Frankena, chair-
man of the philosophy department,
has contributed to a volume of
"Essays in Moral Philosophy,"
recently published by the Univer-
sity of Washington Press.,
Prof. Frankena, one of eight
philosophers whose works appear
in the volume, wrote on the topic
of "Obligation and Motivation in
Recent Moral Philosophy."
The essays are published "to
stimulate further reflection by
both scholars and general readers,
at a -time of increasing public in-
terest in the questions raised," A.
I. Melden, editor, said.

Another year will be required be-
fore ocean-sized ships will be able
to pass from Ontario to Lake Erie.
An additional two years work re-
main before Lakes Michigan,
Huron, and Superior can expect'
bigger vessels.
An important port problem re-
mains, however. The deep sea ves-
sels will find American lake ports
too shallow to accommodate their
massive hulls.

News of a supply run to Big

learned here that the Nationalists'

air drop to Big Quemoy Sunday.
Half a ton of badly needed medical=
supplies was dropped by para-

"We were given flowers by mem-
hers of the crowd on some occa-
sions," he said.
Hold Long Talks
s "We started our singing around
8 p.m.," a member of the chorus
explained, "singing American and
Russian songs. A crowd of from
200 to 1,000 would gather and we
would begin discussing American
cultural life and other questions.
"They were interested in our
living standards and in the pur-
chasing power of American wages.
We continued these discussions
sometimes until three{ a.m."

Industry Aid'
Conference, Set,
How industry should aid en-
gineering education will be the
theme of an invitational confer-
ence Oct. 15 and 16 at the Uni-
The conference, sponsored by
the American Society of Mechan-
ical Engineers and the 'Engineering
Institute of Canada, will consist
mainly of three panel sessions:
1) "The Philosophy of Coopera-
tion between Industry and Higher
Education," 2) "Continuing Edu-
cation by Industry in Industry"
and 3) "Support by Industry of
Higher Education.''

Conference Set
The University Development
Council will meet here Friday for
their fifth annual conference.
Featured speaker will be Charles

for development programs. A panel
moderated by James C. Zeder,
Chrysler vice-president, will review

French Find
Slain Arabs-
ALGIERS - (P) -- French Ar-
my headquarters announced yes-
terday the discovery of 200 to 300
bodies in a dense mountain forest
100 miles east of Algiers.
An Army spokesman told a news
conference all the dead appeared
to be Moslems of neighboring vil-
lages and said French troops had
found leaflets distributed by Na-
tionalist rebels saying the mass
killing was carried out as punish-
ment for treason.
The reported mass graveyard
was near Sidi-Aibh in the grand
kabilyie area, one of the major
strongholds of the rebels.

Meanwhile, top United States
and Nationalist military chiefs,
wound up strategy huddles and the
ranking American officer, Adm.
Harry D. Felt, scheduled a meeting
with Nationalist leader Chiang
Kai-Shek today.
What the military men discussed
was not disclosed but it is believed
one of the major topics was getting
supplies flowing steadily to the
Quemoys off the Red mainland.
Despite the fact the Nationalists
have run the Red blockade nine
days in a row; the supply needs of
the battered offshore islands was
still serious.
Badly needed are medical sup-
plies. Doctors report that the mor-
tality rate among the Quemoy
wounded is high because there is
no refrigeration for drugs or a
blood bank. Anesthetics are being
Red shelling as the crisis became
a month old was relatively light.
Up to nightfall Monday, the Que-
moys took 3,615 shells, the Na-
tionalist defense ministry reported:
That was the lightest bombard-
ment in nine days.
Since Aug. 23 the Reds-by Na-
tionalist count-have battered the
Quemoy complex with 325,000
shells. It is estimated the Na-
tionalists fired back nearly 11,000
rounds. The Nationalists have
claimed victories in three air bat-
ties and six naval clashes.

Professional engineers say Dietzgen's new slide rules
embody the greatest advances in design in more than
a quarter century. Dietzgen's exclusive Micromatic
Adjustment permits perfect alignment of the scalesat
all times. Simple resetting of one screw does it. The
end plates need not be loosened; fit and action of the
slide is never disturbed.
Dietzgen's automatic slide tension insures perfect
slide action wherever and whenever these rules are
used. Slides cannot bind or stick-nor become loose
so errors may result from accidental slide movement.
These are truly great slide rules. Important new scales
added. New super-safe carrying case. See them at
