Transfer Sigma Kappa
By NAN MARKEL
Official figures released yester-
day point to a "disappointing'
$206.01 total realized by the
World University Service in its
Wednesday bucket: drive.
"All the buckets were manned
at places where they were sup-
posed to be, except from 8 to 10
a.m. at the League and 9 to 10
a.m. at the Undergraduate Li-
brary," chairman of the drive Ju-
dith Judy, '61 said.
Her report, to be brought be-
fore the Student Government
Council at its next meeting, pins
down "what went wrong."
Calls Day Bad
"First of all," Miss Judy said,
"yesterday on- the diag was just
one big money day. Beside WUS,
Wolverine Club and Homecoming
were out there looking for money.
The natural reaction was to get
scared and run, unopened pocket-
book in hand."
Students are apathetic to bucket
drives anyway, she added.
They don't like to be forced into
giving, and they don't like to give
money so publicly. Some students
don't even carry money with
them, she said.
She noted, further, that stu-
dents hate to ask other students
There was also apathy in the
people who were behind the drive,
Miss Judy said. Few representa-
tives of the 15 sponsoring groups
showed up for meetings. Regional
WUS also offered little help or
information, she. said.
Analyzing the cause of the apa-
thy, the chairman guessed that
WUS does not give a student any
"reason" to donate or any identi-
fidation with one project.
No Earmarked Funds
"WUS puts in a penny here and
a penny there for all sorts of
projects," she explained, "but it
will not earmark funds to go to
any specific place. When students
here were asked to give money
for Hungarian students there was
a big response. It was clear where
the money was going and why,"a
Other factors making the drive
"not as successful as it might have
been" were: organizational con-
flicts with men's rush and an As-
sembly workshop; the early date
of the drive which caught service
organizations unprepared to help;
and the two-year span between
"That span of time really hurt
us," Miss Judy said, "because it
meant a general lack of knowl-
edge of what WUS is."

INGLEWOOD, Calif. R) - The
moon probe hurled 79,120 miles
into space last weekend was used
as a radio repeater station to
transmit signals almost half way
around the earth, the Air Force
"This accomplishment validates
the idea of using space vehicles of
various types to improve vastly the
effectiveness and reliability of
methods of worldwide communica-
tions," the announcement said.
Tracking stations at Cape
Canavera), Manchester, England,
and Hawaii were in communica-
tion with each other by cable and
radio during the historic flight of
the 84-pound instrument package

space probe itself during a special

TO REACH PEAK:
N .at ional Experts See,
Further Economy Rise
WASHINGTON W)'P-Government economists predicted yesterday
the recovering economy will climb to a peak production rate of roughly
450 billion dollars annually in this final quarter of 1958.
They also forecast another shrinkage of unemployment in October
comparable to the drop of nearly 600,000 last month.
Although these predictions are tentative, they are heartening to
the administration, for if they are borne out Republican candidates
can point to a reduction in the
number of jobless to about three
and one-half million on the eve of
the Nov. 4 congressional elections.
This still would be about one
million above the level of last fall,
but would represent much im-
provement from the average of
five million unemployed which
prevailed in the first nine months
of this recession year.
Secretary of Commerce Sinclair
Weeks was armed with these fa-
vorable appraisals as he and other
government officials headed to-
day for Hot Springs, Va., for a
weekend conference with his Busi-
ness Advisory Council.
Strong optimism that the re-
covery will continue into 1959 pre-
vailed among members arriving

about one-third of its nearly 100
members told Secretary Weeks
they favored an emergency reduc-
tion in federal income tax to stim-
ulate public purchasing power.
Reporters at Hot Springs found
that such talk now has dwindled.
But some industrialists said they
still favor incentive tax revisions.
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. VP) -
The United States sought United
Nations support-yesterday fores-
tablishing a standby United Na-
tions peace force planning staff.
This is in line with the Eisen-
hower administration's desire to
have the General Assembly act
for creation of a military force
that could be used when conflicts
threaten world peace.

The United States position is
authoritatively reported to be
along these lines:
of administration opinion ver
sus council opinion.
Cites Policy Deviation
Dean of Women Deborah Ba
con had said the Council "devi
ated from University policy" i
finding Sigma Kappa still in vo
lation this fall.
The letter from Vice-Presiden
for Student Affairs James A
Lewis to SGC saying Sigma Kap
pa no longer violated rules here
represented policy rather thai
personal opinion, she said.
Responsibility for recogitio"
of student groups ultimately rest
with the Vice-President for Stu-
dent Affairs and the Deans o
Men and Women, Miss Bacor
The U n i v e r $i t y Regulations
booklet refers to "recognition b
the Committee on Student Af-
fairs" and says under the head-
ing "Withdrawal of Recognition'
that "if the action to withdraw
recognition is based solely or prin-
cipally upon failure of the organ-
ization to meet the requirements
f or maintenance of recognition
the Committee on Student Affairs
will assume final judgment."
The Student Government Coun-
cil plan says that SGC and the
Board in Review replace the Stu-
dent Affairs Committee and the
SGC's functions include recog
nizing new campus organizations
"in accordance with regental and
administrative policy"' and to
withdraw recognition from such
groups, "in accordance with re-
gental, administrative and Joint
Judiciary policies, both according
to the plan.
'Matter of Opinion'
Board member Stan Levy,
Grad., said Lewis' letter on Sigma
Kappa seemed to him a statement
Since opinions as to whether
the sorority is nolonger in viola-
tion of rules differ, Levy contin-
ued, the board must separate Uni-
versity policy from interpretation
of the sorority's actions.
National Sigma Kappa had re-
solved at its summer convention
to "abide by the University or
college :rules and regulations now
governing the respective campuses
on which it has a chapter, reserv-
ing the right to regulate its In-
ternal affairs privately, in ac-
cordance with the university or
college rules and regulations, pro-
vided that such rules and regula-
tions must not be in violation of
the Constitution and By-laws of
Sigma Kappa. .' ."
Cite Past Policy
In finding the sorority still in
violation, several SGC members
had pointed out that the phrase
"internal affairs" had apparently
been used in the past to apply to
discriminatory membership policy.
No definite meeting time for the
talks between Lewis, Miss Bacon,
Dean of Men Walter B. Rea, and
the Council, was announced.

Of Tuni sians
TUNIS (AP) - President Habib
Bourguiba of Tunisia yesterday
gave the West the strongest pledge
of support yet made by any leader
of an Arab state.
With ''a blistering attack on
President Gamel Abdel Nasser's
United Arab Republic, Bourguiba
told Tunisia's constituent as-
WIU Remain Western
Yes, I' am Western, and I will
remain so. k
Outlining his reasons for break-
ing liplomatic relations with the
UAR, ,Bourguiba declared the
Egyptians had worked with those
who plotted to assassinate him.
In thus burning his bridges be-
hind him, Bourguiba took plenty
of risks in his newly independent
nation where poverty and economic
woes feed discontented national-
ists who are anti-western.
Although Bourguiba's influence
remains overwhelming he has been
facing criticism in his country
where French aid has. been all
but cut off and United States aid
still is hardly more than a trickle.
President Bourguiba said, in
effect, that from his experience
he found that Tunisia could not
do business with the UAR so long
as Nasser was in control.,
/ Aligns With West
By aligning himself with the
West Bourgulba said, he was serv-
ing the cause of his people and
even of the Nationalists in neigh-
boring Algeria, who have been
fighting France for independence.
Bourguiba's statement joining
the Western powers improves his
chances as a mediator between
the Algerian Nationalists and
Premier Charles de Gaulle.
