It was the third Cuban airliner

The radio messages said the
rebels promised to turn over all
the 25 passengers, including one
American, to the International

arranged. No mention was made of
returning the three crewmen.

FAYEZ SAYEGH-Speaking in a jam-packed auditorium with
interetsted listeners, Fayez Sayegh, counselor to the Arab delega-
tion to the UN, explained the relationship between Arab national-
ism and democratic principles.

"Democracy as a form does not yet fully exist in the Arab world,
but the spirit of democracy is an essential part of Arab nationalisis
Fayez Sayegh, counselor to the Arab States delegation to the
United Nations, described last night the rise of Arab nationalism and
its relations to democratic principles.
Beginning with the first re-awakening of the Arab world in the
nineteenth century, continuing through the inter-war period and
ending with the post-World War II period in which Arab nationalism
has found its greatest fulfillment to date, Sayegh explained the evolu-
tion of Arab feelings on independence and national unity. From

To Ponder
Old Problem
Must Raise Money
For State Budgets
Democratic election tide that
flooded Congress also swept Dem-
ocrats into control of 12 state
lawmaking bodies formerly Re-
publican dominated.
The sea of ballots, however,
washed ashore problems as well
as prizes for the new Democratic
state senators and representatives.
The trouble most widely re-
ported was an old familiar head-
ache: money - how to raise state
revenues with least pain to state
Deficits Troublesome
At least six new legislatures
have big state deficits to cotend
with. Others face demands for
costly programs. Nearly all have
some sort of budget worries.
In Michigan, Gov. G. Mennen
Williams said the state is nearly
flat broke.
The Governor called a special
meeting of his administrative
board to consider the problem.
Reapportionment Asked
Among other issues popping up
in one or more state houses were
reapportionment of legislatures-
especially in places where Demo-
crats complained of past gerry-
manders at their expense; at-
tempts to enact or repeal right-
to-work laws; and state prohibi-
tion repeal. In the South, some
of the legislators were looking for
ways to bolster the legal defenses
of segregation.
A survey by the Associated
Press in 33 states which held
elections for legislatures concur-
rently with those for Congress
showed that in two states - Ohio
and California - Democrats.

the legislature from the GOP.

Everywhere outside the already
100 per cent democratic state-
houses in the south, the Democrats

gave them numerical control.
Fires Callas
NEW YORK (P) - The Metro-
politan Opera yesterday cancelled
its contract with Maria Callas,
the temperamental soprano.
General Manager Rudolf Bing
said the cancellation "was occa-
sioned by Mme. Callas' refusal to
fulfill the terms of her contract."
The tempestuous star has often
been in hot water with her em-
ployers. In 1957, both the Vienna
Opera and the San Francisco
Opera dropped her.
Miss Callas also has been wag-
ing a cold war with the citadel of
opera, La Scala in Milan. She said
last season that she was not re-
turning there.

HAS Aims To Foster
Cooperation in World
"The main objective of the International Institute of Adminis-
trative Sciences is to foster cooperation between all peoples through
comparative studies," Paul Schillings, Director General of that organi-
zation, observed last night.
In a lecture sponsored by the Political Science Roundtable and
the Michigan Chapter of the American Society for Public Administra-
tion, Schillings discussed they

aerely striving to attain inde-
endence of colonial powers, dur-
ng the inter-war period, the Arabs
ssumed the tasks of social organi-
ation at the end of World War II
hich had previously been by-
Class Breakdown
These tasks included breaking
own the feudal hierarchy of
ocial classes which had existed
nder the foreign powers' man-
Ates and through which the
olonial rulers had often carried
ut their policies, Sayegh said.
These principles of equality in
ocial opportunity, of social jus-
ice, of narrowing the gap between
he privileged and non-privileged
asses, became aspirations of
rab nationalism.
The problem of bringing a de-
endent and socially sick society
the state of an independent
nd socially healthy one was
olved in many states by a military
oup d'etat, Sayegh continued.
Attitudes Important
The attitude of the Arab states
award the two main camps in the
ower struggle today, West and
ast, can be explained by the atti-
tdes of these respective groups
'ward the Arab nationalistic
ovement, Sayegh said.
Three factors which add up in
he argument against the West
re that freedom of Arab states
as suppressed and their inde-
endence was dismembered by
Vestern colonialism, and that the
donist movement to set up the
ate of Israel on Arab territory
as carried out under Western
uspices, he noted.
To the extent to which the West
ould infuse the spirit of Western
emocracy into dealings with the
rab world, to that extent Arab
ationalism will veer from its pres-
nt course of neutralism and re-
urn to its former friendship with
he West, eventually joining with
he West, he concluded.

Sketches Growth
Sketching the growth of the
IIAS, Schillings said the first con-
gress of the Institute was. held in
1910 with representation from
thirty-two countries. The last con-
gress was held in Madrid in 1956
with delegates , from sixty - five
countries and ten international
For fair and impartial member-
ship the Institute has stipulated
three conditions, Schillings told
the audience: 1) The government
of a country may send its own
official delegates. 2) Members may
be derived from political, civil, or
educational spheres within a coun-
try. 3) No country may send more
than thirty-five delegates.
Three Committees
Within the Institute, there are
three permanent committees. The
administrative, science committee
deals with questions of adminis-
trative law and comparative treat-
ment of political science, eco-
nomics, and sociology. The Com-
mittee of Administrative Practices
effects an exchange of officials
and provides surveys under terms
of a contractual agreement with
the UN and UNESCO. The Con-
tract Supervisory Committee pro-
vides technical and administrative
assistance to requesting nations,
he said.
In t'he Congresses held every
three years, delegates are required
to defend their positions by the
presentation of formal reports.
The roundtables, first initiated in
1948, stimulate amity and cooper-
ation through informal discussion,
he claimed. Unlike the Congresses,
the roundtables operate under far
fewer procedural restrictions and
delegates are more apt to speak
their piece.

U Studies
High Schools
In Michigan
The University Bureau of School
Services indicated in a recent sur-
vey that graduates of non-public
high schools in Michigan com-
plete more mathematics and sci-
ence than do graduates of public
According to Bureaut consultant
Fred B. Stevenson, these gradu-
ates complete at least two years
study of mathematics and a ma-
jority finish at least two years of
Nearly 600 Michigan schools
were surveyed by the Bureau.
These schools graduated a total
of 40,000 students last June. Pub-
lic schools included three to six-
year secondary systems, while the
non-public schools were predom-
inently four-year high schools.
/ Necessarily Small
The survey said that "the pro-
portion of all students enrolled
taking a particular course in a
particular semester will necessari-
ly be small."
In a four year high school, Ste-
venson said, "only one-fourth of
all students might be enrolled in
a course, even though it was com-
pulsory for all students in a cer-
tain grade."
The Bureau found general sci-
ence offered by 71.7 per cent of
the schools, but only 9.8 per cent
of the students took this course
each year. Biology, given in 94.7
per cent of the schools, was taken
by one of fivestudents per year.
Big Schools Better
"Opportunities for students to
acquire four units of credit in
mathematics and four units of
credit in science are better in
schools of 500 total enrollment or
more than in smaller schools,"
Stevenson said-,
Plan Program
For Week
The inaugural speaker for this
year's International Week will be
Eleanor Roosevelt discussing the
topic, "Is America Facing World
Leadership?" Robert Arnove, '59,
chairman of the program, an-
nounced last night.
The schedule of events for the
second International Week, Nov.
18 to 23, also includes special
events, conferences, study pro-
grams and the campus world's
fair, he said.
Throughout the week a series
of dinners and discussions with
international students at the
various housing units will be
s p o n s o r e d by Interfraternity
Council, Interhouse Council, Pan-
hellenic Association and Assembly
In conjunction with this, the
Women's League has planned a
