Four Plead Guilt
In Betting Case
Daily Editorial Director
Three University students yesterday changed their pleas to guilty
in connection with the sale of football betting cards.
Michael Dodgson, '59, John Miller, '61E, and Nick Mitea, '60, were
fined $100 each by Municipal Judge Francis O'Brien. David Martin,
an Eastern Michigan College sophomore arrested Thursday night in
Ypsilanti, also pleaded guilty to similar charges of engaging in an il-
legal occupation.

Halt, Control Sstem
GENEVA (IP)-Russia called on Britain and the United States
yesterday to join her in an immediate and permanent suspension of
nuclear tests and said only then would she help establish an interna-
tional control system to police such a ban.
Grey-haired Soviet Delegation Chief Semyon K. Tsarapkin ad-
vanced the proposal at the opening public session]of the three-power
nuclear conference. The immediate private Western reaction was that
this represented the usual cart-before-the-horse Russian approach to
the subject.
Speaking after the Russian delegate, United States Ambassador
James J. Wadsworth stressed that the three atomic nations had come
together "to achieve a safeguarded'
agreement to refrain from nuclear
weapons tests." He put the accent U .S. A ttacks

to the problem," Lovell said.
Opposing Lovell's viewpoint,
Goldman said the vagueness of the
Student Government Council plan
and the Sigma Kappa issue were
two separate problems, and that
the Sigma Kappa policy itself
should be settled first.
Assistant Dean of the Literary
College James Robertson also dis-
agreed with Lovell after the meet-
ing. "My own view is that we will
move more quickly to the central
issue by dealing directly with
Sigma Kappa, than if we consider
it in the abstract," he noted.
'Only an Opinion'
Goldman reiterated the point
which he had made at the joint
discussion, that the Board had
"no , -ht to be called in on the
matter," since SGC had only
rendered an opinion and had taken
no punitive action.
The Council president pointed
out that perhaps Dean of Men
Walter B. Rea would agree with
him now that Rea had been as-
sured that the SGC decision made
two years ago did not bind this
council body.
The 1956 ruling stated that Sig-
ma Kappa had until September of
1958 to remove "discriminatory
membership policies" or lose Uni-
versity recognition.
