Berlin Situation
Moscow Says West Avoiding Crisis;
Using City for Pawn i Cold War
LONDON (P) - Russia yesterday accused the Western powers
of avoidingda business-like settlement ofhthe Berlin crisis and threat-
ened to end its partial occupation of the divided city unilaterally.
"If the governments of the United States, Britain and Prance do
not wish to cooperate with the Soviet Union in solving this problem,
nothing remains for the Soviet government but to relieve itself of
the functions connected with maintaining the occupation regime in
Berlin," Moscow Radio said.
Mentions Agreement
The radio, broadcasting a summary of Tass sttaement on the
former German capital, added "a corresponding agreement" would
be concluded with the East Ger-

HAVANA (') - Cuba's rebels

the areas they control and push
for diplomatic recognition from
The two-year-old rebellion has

Eye Recognition
The rebels under Fidel Castro
may hope to achieve diplomatic
recognition from some nations,
possibly even Latin American
countries. Thismight give new
energy to the revolt, which has
grown steadily in strength in east-
ern Cuba the past year.
The rebel radio indicated its
intentions after announcing the
arrival in rebel-held territory of
Manuel Urrutia Lleo, who is Cas-
tro's appointee as President of
the rebellion.
Urrutia had been In exile, in
New York, Miami and Venezuela,
since he was removed from his
post as a magistrate in Oriente
Province because of his insistence
two years ago upon the right of
captured rebels to go free.
Refuse Mediation
The broadcast said the rebels
would accept no mediation, even
from the Organization of Ameri-
can States (OAS), to restore order
in Cuba. It complained that the
OAS had remained indifferent to
Cuban rebel aims all through the
two years of fighting.
"What the democratic coun-
tries can do is break diplomatic
and commercial relations (with
the government of President Ful-
gencio Batista) and recognize the
belligerency of the government of
the republic in arms, which is to
be represented by the President,
Dr. Manuel Urrutia Lleo."
Plan Meeting
With. Schaadt
Representatives of the Mosher
House Council will meet with
Leonard A. Schaadt, residence hall
business manager, today to resolve
the problems mentioned in yester-;
day's protest against administra-;
tive policies.
"We will deal with their prob-
lems immediately," Schaadt com-
mented. The survey committee
appointed Wednesday by the Resi-i
dence Hall's Services Committee'
will be used to examine the food
problems until they can be worked
out, he mentioned.
Appraising the protest, Schaadt
said that it "was sort of an im-
mature method of getting publicity'
for Mosher Hall."]






Secretary of State John Foster
Dulles is due to leave for the Paris
talks today despite an intestinal
inflammatiorn for which he entered
the hospital last Friday.
Last night, after study of the
Tass statement, the State Depart-
ment issued its reply accusing the
Soviets of striking a "note of
menace" and emphasizing that the
United States for its part "has
made no threats."
Grip Talks
GENEVA (P) - A nightmaxe of
frustration yesterday gripped the
10-nation conference on preven-
tion of surprise attack,
Rulssian tempers flared after a
month's discussion in which East
and West have failed to agree
even on a plan of work.
Soviet delegates angrily accused
the West of trying to trick the
Communist bloc by Troj vi horse
tactics into accepting espionage
agents in the role of international
Across the table, the Westerners
denied it. Poker-faced, they re-
plied calmly.
It was a dramatic illustration
of the deadlock that has persist-
ed in milder form since the con-
ference opened in Geneva's Pal-
ace of Nations Wednesday.
Day after day the delegates
meet privately for an hour or two
in the rambling palace. And when
they finish they are right back to

The decision, announced at last

On Sorority Decision
Maynard Goldman, '59, Student

night released the Council's "e-

Sigma Kappa case.
The Council said it by-passed
University President Harlan Hat-
cher so the Regents could discuss
the appeal at the same time they
consider the resolution passed by
the Faculty Senate Monday.
Specificially the brief calls on
the Regents to reverse the Board

The Faculty Senate's resolution
called the Board in Review's deci-

Random Survey Shows

More liberal education in the engineering school was described
as a "nice" but impractical thought during a random survey of
students yesterday.
NThe comments came after Murray D. Van Wagoner, '21, ex-
governor of Michigan and one of the nation's outstanding civil engi-
neers, sharply criticized American universities Wednesday for their

Engineering students are now
required to elect only six hours
of non-technical szbjects during
their 140 hour program.
"It really presents a dilemma,"
Richard Selvala, '59E, said yester-
day. "Industry is crying we're not
getting enough technical training
and other such as Van Wagoner
cry we're not prepared for civic
responsbility," he continued.
In Agreement
Walter J. Emmons, associate
dean of engineering school and in
clbse contact with students, con-
firmed Selvala's( attitude. "You
can't convince many students they
should stay around and take extra
courses." Emmons said.
Emmons said he favored an op-
tional liberal-arts-engineering pro-
gram. My theory is that nobody
gets anything out of a course if
he is pushed into it, Emmons said.

Panel Lauds India as Symbol of World Peace

A panel representing seven countries professed admiration last
night for India's attempt to set an example for both East and West
as a symbol of international peace, but the Indian neutrality policy
drew sharp criticism from several panel members.
The symposium given before a large, interested audience at the
Union was moderated by Prof. Robert Crane of the history depart-
Pacifico Albano Castro, Grad., of the Philippines pointed to India's
geographical location and said because it was close to the Eastern
bloc, it cannot afford to remain neutral. He also attacked its professed
doctrine of non-interference by mentioning the part India played in
the Nepal incident of 1951.
Views Apprehensive
"India," he said, "has also displayed designs toward Kenya and
Tanganyika." Castro views this neutral policy and the attempt to
create a third block of international powers apprehensively since
India is in no position to defend herself against aggression, he con-
