Student Government Council and the administration agreed last
night to recommend to the SGC Board in Review that the stay of

This would leave the Council free to determine the status of

first full days of his reign the 78-
year-old pontiff took a series of
decisions indicating his reign wil
be a dynamic one.

peace appeal immediately came
as a surprise to many Romans.
Then he decided that his cor

Catholic ceremonies, will be hel

It is the feast day of St. Charles

tranquility championed nearly 20
years by Pius XII.
John XXIII, the former Angel
Giuseppe Cardinal Roncalli, voiced

AUDIENCE SUPPORTS YR's:
Students Debate Benefits of Anti-Union Legislation.
By RICHARD CONDON
A resolution calling for stricter governmental control of labor
unions, proposed by the Young Republicans and opposed by the Young
Democrats, last night was supported by the audience for acceptance
The first speaker for the Young Republicans, Alan O'Day, '82,
said, "The Republican party is interested in the working man and
wants to help him."
He said that unions practice discrimination, make little effort
to assist the cause of their members, and contribute to political par-
ties and campaigns.
O'Day supported his accusations by pointing to the high union
dues which "discriminate against Negroes." the "undemocratic poli-
cies exercised by the Teamsters Union," and the UAW-CIO official
endorsement of Adlai Stevenson, both in 1952 and 1956.
Kenneth Thomas. '61. sunnorted the accusations of his fellow
