Nuclear Plan
WASHINGTON () - Russia
may be getting ready to torpedo
plans to work out an East-West
agreement for ending nuclear
weapons tests under an interna-
tional inspection system.
Several pzzling recent moves
by the Soviet Union are seen by
officials here as adding up to that
Make Statement
Government concern about So-
viet intentions found expression
last night in a State Department
statement challenging Russia's
good faith on the issue.

The statement was issued after
Foreign Minister.Andre Gromyko
had said in New York that unless
the United Nations calls a halt to
all nuclear weapons testing the
Soviet Government will be forced
to continue its own test program.
He said it would go ahead until it
has equaled in number the test
shots fired by both the United
States and Britain since March
Recall Conditions
The Etate Department recalled
that on Aug. 22 4he United States
and Britain said they would sus-
pend tests conditionally for a year

Change Hours
Undergraduate Library hours will revert to last semester's sched-
ule starting Monday, Prof. Frederick H. Wagman, director of the Uni-
versity library, announced yesterday.
The library will be open frofli 8 a.m. to midnight Monday through
Friday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and from 2 p.m. to mid-
night on Sundays.

Attacks U.S.
On Policies
Prof.'Richard L. Cutler of the
psychology department criticized
the Republican administration for
faulty handling of foreign affairs
in a talk before the Young Demo-
crats last night.
He described the situation in
Formosa as being brought about

e effect of this year's budget out
'on library services," Prof. Wag-'
man said. "We have been trying
to work out some way of restor-
ing the longer hours ever since
the beginning of the semester,
when the hours were shortened."
"We regretted the necessity of
cutting hours and are glad the
hours could now be extended,"
Prof. Wagman said.
"The demand for library serv-
ices is at an all-time' high, and I
am most grateful that the ad-
ministration has been able to take
emergency measures to alleviate
our situation."
He said that student use of the
library has been extremely grati-
fying and that he is pleased with
the way that the library has be-
come an intrinsic part of the Uni-
versity already.
. Several other steps made neces-
sary by budget restrictions, such
as reductions in staff, stack serv-
ices and reference and extension

Wagman said.

board. The general policy has al-
ready been officially approved by
the Deans' Conference.
Deposit Required
The plan will require a $50 de-
posit from newly admitted stu-
dents by late spring, according
to Clyde Vroman, director of ad-
missions. The program is expected
to be in effect for next fall's ad-
missions, he said.
Vroman said the plan will "help
materially" in admitting students.
The problem of separating the
student who wants to attend a
particular school from the stu-
dent who has little intention of
enrolling has grown with rising
Make Multiple Applications
Most students apply to three or
more schools, Vroman said, with
some applying to as many as
twenty. This leaves many schools
uncertain as to the final size of
new enrollments.
The University admitted ap-
proximately 4,500 students to get
a freshman class of slightly over
3,000, Vroman said. Over 8,000
applied last year.
The program was instituted be-
cause of concern for the student
whose first choice of college was
the University, Vroman said. The
Uniersty<now can only estimate
the number of students who will
finally show up in the fall, he
pointed out.
Will Aid Student
If the number of students ad-
mitted contained an unusually
large percentage of "no-shows,"
there would be vacancies, which
could have been filled by students
who sincerely wanted to attend
the University, Vroman said.
The board of admissions, who
will work out the plan in detail,.
is composed of representatives
from all schools and colleges whose
admissions are handled by the
Director of Admissions.
The deposit plan will be the first
in Michigan-supported schools at
the undergraduate level.

young politician and news ana-
lyst, will speak on "Resources for

As a special writer for the New

he studied methods of prevent-
ing Communist infiltration in the
Middle Eastern countries.

Two New Strokes
Bring Death at 82
Vatican Radio Announces Passing
Of 'Man Most Esteemed in World'
CASTEL GANDOLFO (M- - Pius XII, for 19 troubled years
the "Pope of Peace," died yesterday in the Papal summer
castle alongside Lake Albano.
A crucifix lay on his chest and a rosary in his hands in
the final hours.
Two strokes, developing into a grave condition of the
heart And lungs, carried him away under the weight of his
82 years. The Vatican 'radio said death occurred at 3:52 a.m.
(9:52 p.m. EST) yesterday.
The announcement of death was made by a Jesuit priest,
the Rev. Fr. Francesco Pellegrino; who had broadcast devel-
opments from an ante-chamber of the Pope's death room for
the past two days.
"Most Esteemed"
He said: "With soul profoundly saddened we give you
now, at 3:56 a.m. the following announcement: the Holy
Father, Pius XII, is dead. Pius "

WASHINGTON. (P) - All United States troops are to be pulled
out of Lebanon' by Oct. 31 "in view of the progress made toward

it had been expected, symbolized the growth of new hopes for peace
in the Middle East and the world. The announcement made note of

by the Republican philosophy
that power politics is the kind
that pays off in international as
well as in national politics.
Because the islands which the
Nationalist Chinese are defend-
ing are not vital to our strategy,
Prof. Cutler said, the United
States has been placed in a posi-
tion where one false move by the
Nationalist Chinese will take us
to war to defend them.
Citing another instance of poli-
cy mismanagement by the pres-
ent administration, Prof. Cutler
cited the United, States' actions
in the Middle East ,when King
Farouk's government was ousted
in the Egyrtian revolt.
Prof. Cutler also discussed "the
case of the people vs. President
Dwight D. Eisenhower," and what
he called the problem of the plac-
ing of partisanship above prin-
ciple in the Republican party.

The Soviet Union demanded yes-

Eugene Cardinal T i s s e r a n t,
dean of the College of Cardinals,
made the official recognition of
the Pope's death.
He entered the death chamber,
lifted. a white cloth that covered
the Pope's face, and announced
to other Cardinals present that
Pius XII was dead. Then the
fisherman's ring, symbol of Papal
power was removed from the
Pope's hand.
No Chamberlain Appointed
Usually- the official recognition
is made by the Papal Chamber-
lain. Pope Pius XII died without
appointing a chamberlain.
The body will be borne back to
Vatican City, 18 miles from Castel
Gandolfo, for the funeral rites.
He was the 261st Pope and the
first to die outside Rome since the
18th century.

Recurrence of Illness
Last week he had a recurrence
of gastritis sand hiccups, accom-
paniments of the illness that took
him- to the verge of death in De-
cember 1954.
The Pope showed some im-
provement and last Friday warm-
ly welcomed Francis Cardinal
Spellman, heading a pilgrimage
of 600 New Yorkers. Doctors con-
tinued to urge him to rest, and
asked him to'conserve his strength
by not talking at one audience. He
continued active, however, and
held an audience Sunday.
That night, while being treat--
ed for his stomach ailment, he
suddenly weakened. The first
stroke came Monday morning.
.But another stroke Tuesday, 47
hours after the first, wiped out
the gains made since the first
stroke. A few hours later the phy-
sicians reported:
