To Ask Support
Of SGC for Plan,
Reversal of Sigma Kappa Decision
To Come Before Regents Board
The reversal of Student Government Council's Sigma Kappa
decision will be appealed to the University Regents, SGC President
Maynard Goldman, '59, said last night.
The Board in Review of SGC over-ruled the Council's with-
drawal of recognition from Sigma Kappa sorority Saturday by a four-
three vote. Goldman said he had decided as a Board in Review member
to appeal the decision, and would call on SOC tomorrow for support
with an appeal drafted.
No Historical Precedent
Appeal to the Regents has no precedent in SGC's four year
history. The Board in Review had never before reversed the Council.
SGC first found the sorority in

U.S. Warns
Reds To Quit
States has warned Russia to quit
harassing American planes in in-
ternational airspace or face the
r What might happen was not
spelled out.
A stern U.S. note, delivered to
the Kremlin Nov. 13 and made
public today, cited two incidents
occurring on Nov. 7:
Fire on Plane
1. A U.S. plane flying over the
Baltic Sea, about 66 miles from
the nearest Soviet territory, was
fired on twice without warning by
Soviet fighter planes.
2. A few hours later, another
U.S. plane was intercepted three
times by Soviet fighters in the Sea
of Japan 64 miles from the Siber-
Ian Coast and about 300 miles
north of Vladivostok. No shots
were fired but the Soviets "made
simulated attacks" as close as
100 feet.
Defensive Action Ordered
The U.S. protest said in neither
case did the American aircraft
open fire. But it added:
"If such dangerous tactics are
in the future repeated by Soviet
aircraft in close proximity to
American aircraft in international
airspace, the Soviet government
should be aware that commanders
of American aircraft will be under
instructions to take any defensive
action which they consider neces-
sary and appropriate.
"The United States government
expects the Soviet government to
take measures without delay to
stop this interference with Ameri-
can aircraft.
World News

bishops of Boston and Philadel-
phia were chosen to be Cardinals
yesterday, along with 21 prelates
of other nationalities.
The 23 new Cardinals will bring
the College of Cardinals to 75,
largest membership in Roman
Catholic history.
Pope John XXIII called a con-
sistory for Dec. 15-18 to give the,
new cardinals their red hats.
The new American Cardinals
are the Most Rev. Richard J.
Cushing, 63, of Boston and the

violation of University rules in
1956. Sigma Kappa came on cam-_
pus since passage in 1949 of a rule
prohibiting organizations which
restrict membership on the basis
of race or religion.#
The national sorority had sus-
pended chapters at Tufts and Cor-
nell Universities in 1956 after they7
had pledged Negroes.7
Call Board in 1956
The SGC Board in Review was
called on the 1956 decision finding
Sigma Kappa in violation, and the,
decision was sustained.
No meeting was called following
a February, 1957 SOC decision
giving the sorority until this Fall7
to demonstrate it no longer vio-
lated University rules and should,
retain recognition.
Prior to the meeting at which
SGC considered Sigma Kappa's
status this fall, Vice-President fori
Student Affairs James A. Lewis
wrote a letter to the Council, say-
ing Sigma Kappa no longer was
in violation.
Subsequently, the administra-
tion has labeled the letter a "man-
daje" to SGC to find the sorority
no in violation, then said it was
not a mandate but a "crucial
fact" SGC overlooked in finding
the sorority in violation.
Parties Back
3te majority leader Lyndon John-
son told the United Nations yes-
terday both the Democratic and
Republican parties solidly support
President Dwight D. Eisenhower's
proposal for international cooper-
ation in control of outer space.
The Texas Democrat gave the
UN that assurance in an unprece-
dented appearance before the 81-
nation political committee.
He came here at the invitation
of Secretary of State John Foster
Dulles to underline U. S. solidar-
ity on a top foreign policy issue.
It was the first time a leaderof-
the political opposition had ad-
dressed the UN, although the U.S.
delegation includes both Repub-
licans and Dem~ocrats.
Johnson is among those men-
tioned as a possible Democratic
nominee for the Presidency in

the school's Association of Gov-
erning Boards of the Council's
cooperative request plan.
The committee convened after
the Association's afternoon meet-
ing and attempted to set up the,
ground rules for procedure on the
joint request, University Controller
Gilbert L. Lee, Jr., said. He wasa
one of the University's representa-
tives on the committee in place of

At the newly-created group's
first meeting steps were taken to
collect all of the capital outlay
requests of the nine schools, Nie-
huss said. Discussion of whether
to proportion the request accord-
ing to present enrollment, increas-
es in enrollment or in relation to
each school's individualsrequest
was also held, he added.
The suggested request of $25,-
000,000 which emerged from last
week's Council meeting is a mini-
mum figure which may give each
school a start on its capital outlay
needs, Niehuss commented. The
totaled capital outlay requests for
1959-60 of the individual schools
is between $50,000,000 and $60,-
The new committee hopes to
have a report for the Council's
next meeting in East Lansing in:
December, he said.
There was only informal discus-
sion of a joint operating budget
request, Niehuss said, indicating
that a joint request for this year
is unlikely.
University Regent Roscoe Boni-
steel, chairman of the Associa-
tion of Governing Boards, said,
following the Council's morning
meeting, the Association approved
the "general concept" of the joint
request and the direction which
the Council is now taking in this

Two Pledges
On Atomics
GENEVA (A')-Russia suggested
yesterday the negotiation of two
separate treaties on nuclear test
suspension, despite western argu-
ments that the banning of tests
and the control of such a ban must
go together in a single document.
In a second international con-
ference in Geneva, the Soviet
Union proposed still another treaty
- this one to prohibit planes
carrying nuclear weapons from
flying over the territory of other
countries or the high seas,
Western delegations suspected
propaganda traps in both Soviet
At the end of a day of intense
negotiation, the three-nation con-
ference on nuclear test suspension
and the ten-nation technical talks
on surprise attack problems both
remained deadlocked.
A western source said the Rus-
sians still were ducking on the
control issue in the nuclear talks.
Under the two-treaty proposal ad-
vanced by Soviet delegate Semyon
Tsarapkin the Russians again in-
sisted that the United States and
Britain must first agree to suspend
tests before discussions begin on
control features.
Western sources described this
as an attempt to get the West to
sign a blind contract. In the west-
ern view a promise to suspend tests
unaccompanied by agreement on a
control system would be only a
paper agreement.
But, the West holds, it could
be used by the Russians for pro-
paganda purposes if this confer-
ence failed to reach final agree-
ment. The western powers, in such
a case, would appear to have com-
mitted themselves in a moral sense
to ending tests without obtaining
any guarantees that Russia ever
would accept international control
personnel on her soil.

Free Miroy
East German officials unex-
>ectedly released ex-University
student George S. Milroy, '51BAd.,
late Saturday night after holding
him for four weeks.
The Communists dropped the
spy charges against the young
tourist apparently realizing they
ould not force the United States
to negotiate directly with the East
Uerman government.
Milroy was taken into custody
by the East Germans on charges
of photographing Soviet head-
quarters near Neustrelitz, 70 miles
aorth of Berlin.
"They never manhandled me,"
Milroy said. "They were affable,
almost friendly. But I was under
tremendous psychological pres-
sure to admit spying," he contin-
ued at a press conference on Sun-
"But I persisted with my protest
that I was just an innocent tour-
ist," Milroy added.
Milroy commented the East
Germans suggested he should ap-
ply formally to the East German
government for an interview with
a United States consul.
He said his captors drew up the
request for consular assistance

to the next. Such a move failed
by a 55-38 vote in 1957.
The rule which has existed for
several years requires the affirm-
ative votes of two-thirds of all
members to bring debate to a
halt. With Alaska's two additions,
this would mean 66 senators must
vote for cloture, a process of lim-
iting debate to force an eventual'
showdown on the business before"

senators that Sen. Richard B.

But Douglas and Humphrey
said that while the southerners
are willing to accept a change so
that two-thirds of those voting'
could curb debate, they want to
apply such a provision also to fu-;
ture changes in the rules.
Instead, Douglas and others
have proposed a rule under which
two-thirds of those voting could
limit debate immediately. If this
failed and debate continued, for
another 15 days, 50 affirmative
votes then could end the talk.
Friends Say
Poor Handling
Of Tragedy
Neighbors of the late Dr. Aaron
Edwards, -who died in the fire at
his home last week, yesterday de-
nounced the Ann Arbor Fire De-
partment for their Dandling of
the fire.
In a letter addressed to the City
Council, the fire department was
charged with not doing all they
could to remove the members of
Dr. Edwards' family as soon as
possible. They thought that more
attention was given to the attempt
of extinguishing the fire rather
than saving lives.
Defends Department
Ann Arbor's Fire Chief, Ernest
Heller, who was present at the
meetingi defended the actions of
the Fire Department. He said that
the Fire Department arrived on
the scene of the fire within five
minutes of'the time the call was
received and at once went to work
to put the fire out.
Fire Chief Heller explained that
before it is possible to even begin
to try to get people out of a burn-
ing building it is first necessary to
relieve the pressure in the house
caused by the heat. If this is not
done, he continued, it is possible
that the fire will explode through-
out the rest of the house.
Concur on Other Points
On other points that were
brought up by the neighbors Fire
Chief Heller and the City Council
concurred in part. It was generally
agreed that the fire department
does not have enough men per
truck unit. The reason for this is
that it is hard to get enough money
for the different protection agen-
cies of the city government, in the
face of other demands. The fire
chief said it was also mentioned
that it might be a good idea to
have one policeman responsible
for getting information about per-
sons that still might be trapped
in a burning building.
In other business by the Council
a proposal was turned down that
would have stiffend th husig

Frozen EggWhites inPie
Cause Quad Food Illness
Bacteria which caused the food illness in South Quadrangle
came from canned frozen egg whites, Dr. Morley Beckett, Health
Service director, said yesterday.
The egg whites were used in making the meringue top for the
zoconut cream pie.


Have Dormant Stage
"After the whites have been separated from the yolks, the whites
are put into cans and frozen. If any bacteria were in the whites,
freezing would not kill them. They
would merely go into a dormant
S24 Bstage," Dr. Beckett said.
in SA B The cream filling of the pie is
rooked to boiling so no bacteria
could have been in this, the direc-
tor added.
After the whites are taken from
the cans, they are mixed with:
atler ingredients to form a mer-
ingue. The meringue is warmed
slightly to give it a brown color
and then it is placed on top of
the cream filling.
Any bacteria present in theI
whites would not be killed with
ily a slight warming. "Instead,
the heat brings the bacteria out
of their dormancy and the bac-
teria multiply, just as if they were
in an incubator," Dr. Beckett said.
