Cease-Fire
Britam, France Join
In Support of Policy
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (P) -
Britain and France joined yester-
day in supporting efforts of the
United States to get a cease-fire
as a first step toward resolving the
Formosa crisis.
The two allies of the United
States set forth their positions on
the Far East in policy speeches be-
fore the 81-nation United Nations
General Assembly.
British Foreign Secretary Selwyn
Lloyd declared his government's
support for the United States "in
their wish for a peaceful settle-
ment."
Suggest U.N. Solution
He called on both the Chinese
Reds and the Chinese Nationalists
to end at once their military activ-
ity in the Formosa Strait.
French Foreign Minister Mau-
rice Couve de Murville said that if
the talks fail in Warsaw between
United States and Chinese Com-
munist representatives, it would be
f the duty of the U.N. to attempt
to resolve the conflict.
Most delegates expect the For-
mosa crisis to be thrown into the
U.N. British sources denied that,
Lloyd had approached Soviet For-
eign Minister Andrei Gromyko on
putting the issue before a foreign
minister's conference in advance
of U.N. consideration.
Lloyd made no mention in his
speech of' bringing the question
before the U.N.,
Lloyd Blames Chinese
He said the crisis was "im-
mediately precipitated by the
large-scale bombardment of Que-
moy" by the Chinese Reds.
"We deprecate the violent and
irovocative language used about
the situation by the spokesmen of
the Chinese People's Republic and
the Soviet Union," he declared.
He said he had not observed any
similar effort on the part of those
who accuse the United States now
of aggression in the Far East.

REPUBLICANS MEET-Prominent Michigan Republican leaders were on hand yesterday to greet
Sen. Jacob K. Javits (R-N.Y.) on his arrival at Willow Run Airport. Sen. Javits flew in from New,
York to spark Sen. Charles E. Potter's (R-Mich.) re-election drive for the United States Senate in
the forthcoming November elections. From left to right, Jason L. Honigman, GOP candidate for
state Attorney General; Sen. 4avits;. Representative George Meader (R-Mich.); and Sen. Potter.
JaisAsIntegration Action

By BARTON HUTHWAITE
Senator Jacob K. Javits (R-N.
Y.) last night demanded a special
session of Congress to cope with
the issue of desegregation in public
schools, if present efforts by the
Supreme Court and the Executive
Department remain deadlocked.
In a Republican campaign ad-
dress supporting Senator Charles
E. Potter's (R-Mich.), re-election
drive, Sen. Javits called for en-
forcement of the Supreme Court
decision - no matter what the
cost - tO correct racial inequali-
ties in the South.
'Faubus Challenges U.S.'
He charged the validity of the
Constitution and the unity of the
nation were at stake. "The moment
of decision is at hand . . . our
national, duty is clear . .. either
the Constitution is the supreme
law of the land for every American
no matter what state he lives in or
we no longer remain a single
nation," he declared.

Chinese Supply Ships Ram
Through Communist Fire
TAIPEI (R)-A Nationalist supply convoy rammed through a
Comymunist'artillery barrage today and began unloading supplies on
Quemoy's beaqhes.
, The big landing ships discharged cargo-laden amphibious vehicles
and sent them racing for shore. This was the first such convoy to
reach the Nationalist bastions since Monday.
Four correspondents returned to Taipei with the news as National-
ist air force sources reported four Nationalist Sabrejets shot down one

If a special session of Congress
were called, Sen. Javits said every
effort should be made to pass
legislation empowering the Attor-
ney General to initiate court actipn
in the school desegregation issue.
Sen. Javits recalled that broad
authority of this nature was pro-
posed in the Administration's Civil
Rights Bill last year with the full
support of Sen. Potter and him-
self, but was struck out.
He predicted the needed au-
thority would prove tremendously
effective if the Attorney General
were given authority to sue for
the enforcement of any person's
china Talks
To Resume
WARSAW (R) - The United
States and Communist C,
cided yesterday to continue dip-
locatic negotiations aimed at eas-
lomaticanegotiations aimed at
easing Far East tension, despite
Diplomats ,exressed doubt that
either power had, shifted position
enough to make a quick agree-
ment possible, but they said
neither Washington nor Peiping
wanted to take responsibility be-
fore world opinion for calling the
talks quits.
United States ambassador Ja-
cob Beam and Red Chinese envoy
Wang Ping-Nan met for an hour
and 45 minutes in a Polish palace,
their fourth session of the cur-
rent series.
They arrived looking grim and
silent and there was no noticeable
difference when they, left.
"Tuesday morning at 10," was
all Beam said as he ducked into
a Cadillac. Wang was no more
voluble and Peiping radio was
just as secretive.
General feeling in the War-
saw diplomatic corps - Commu-
nist and non-Communist -- was
that the Chinese were playing the
role of a great power and.not ask-
ing the Kremlin's permission be-
fore making a move.
They felt, instead, that Moscow
was backing up Peiping when it
had to.
Fears were expressed that this
was much more dangerous than
the usual jousting between Wash-
ington and the Kremlin.

civil rights against any state or
state official. !
Sen. Javits charged Governor
Orval Faubus has "thrown down
the challenge of interposition by
the state of its own will against
the will of the nation." In doing
so, he continued, Gov. Faubus has
challenged the very supremacy of
the Constitution as the law of the
land.
The Supreme Court cannot be
held entirely responsible for the
final settlement of the racial prob-
lem, Sen. Javits said.
Sen. Javits called upon "every
agency of the Federal governnent"
to assist in bringing about obedli-
ence to the Federal law.
Favors Special Session
"Our experiences in Arkansas
and Virginia now show us that the
authority to initiate action is per-
haps the most vital of any in the
matter of school desegregation,"
Sen. Javits explained.
Sen. Javits favored a special
sesson- of Congress because "I be-
lieve- that its- first responsibility
will be to give to the Federal
Government the authority it ur-
gently needs and-which was denied
to it in 1957."
He also suggested several other
less drastic measures to insure
the desegregation of public schools.
Public To Force Change
"We could hazard' everything
upon the fact that public pressure
will force a change in the position
of state officials in Arkansas and
Virginia," Sen. Javits said.
He said the United States could
wait for private parties to attack
each of the state laws designed to
prevent the carrying out of de-
segregation. When this occurred,
the United States could intervene
as a friend of the court in urging
that the statutes be- struck down.
Antoher possibility cited was to
move into court with prosecutions
for contempt against state officials
and others interfering with the
ruling of the Supreme Court.

Integration
Code Set
At Illinois
By NAN MARKEL
The University of Illinois last
week adopted a policy of state-
ment against discrimination in
all its departments.,
The policy was to go into effect
immediately. It states that the
University of Illinois will not in
any way discriminate "because of
race, creed, or national origin."
Under the policy the University
of Illinois also encourages non-
discriminatory practices in off-
campus accommodations, services
and recreational facilities.
Proposed by Students
Entitled the Code of Fair Edu-
cational Practice, the policy was
proposed by the Illinois Student
Senate.' It was drawn up by a
group, which grew out of the
Senate human relations commit-
tee, along lines of a similar code
approved by the National Stu-
dents Association in 1955.
In part, the policy states:
"No student is denied admis-
sion becaues of race, creed, or
national origin."
". ..Room assignments are not
made on the basis of race, creed,
or national origin."
''.,The University encourages
nondiscriminatory practices in
commercially operated rooming
houses." 4'.
Urge Fair Practices
". . .Local doctors, dentists and
nurses, together with local hos-
pitals, are encouraged to adopt
p~olicies of nondiscrimination.
" The University adminis-
tration encourages those who
serve the general' student body to
treat all students alike."
'. ..The problem of restrictive
clauses in the constitution and
bylaws of student social organiza'
tions is primarily a student prob-
lem and therefore should be
solved by the students concerned.
Policy Not Considered
Chairman of SGC's Human Re-
lations Board Oliver C. Moles,
Grad., told The Daily that to his
knowledge the Board here has not
recently considered drawing up
such a code.
"We are in the practice of deal-
ing with specific problem areas,"
he explained, "and we have not
worked with any such broad
formulations of policy."
Vice-President for Student Af.
fairs James A. Lewis would not
comment on the Illinois state-
ment until he received ,a copy of
it from the school.

REPLACES FISHER:
Lund, Former M' Star,

By JIM BENAGH
Don Lund, Detroit Tiger coach
and a former Wolverine three-
sport star, is expected to be
named Michigan's new head base-
ball coach .when the University
Regents meet this morning.
It has been speculated for
months that Lund, who accumu-
lated nine letters as an under-
graduate, would get the job, re-
placing Ray Fisher - who held
the post for 38 years before being
forced to retire under the Univer-
sity's mandatory program.
The Board in Control of Inter-
collegiate Athletics endorsed Lund
as their foremost candidate, and
it is expected that the Regents
will approve the choice.
x There have been no known
cases of the Regents disapproving
an Athletic Board's recommenda-
tion for a coach, since the latter
group is usually appointed by the
Regents to screen applicants and
suggest a final choice.
Lund apparently is confident
of getting the job, since it is re-
ported by a reliable source that
he has, purchased a home- near
Ferry Field.
The appointment ofna baseball
coach was on the agenda of last
July's Regent meeting, but was
withdrawn as Lund, the foremost
candidate, was under a Detroit
contract for the full season.
It will be up to the Regents to
officially designate the duties of
the coach. Lund is capable of
handling chores in at least three
sports - baseball, basketball and
football.
