By Russians
Said Strong
Called Stern Warning
On Western Action
MOSCOW (A) - Neutral diplo-
mats yesterday interpreted the
latest Soviet statement on the
German situation as a stern warn-
ing to the Western powers against
trying to reinforce their garrisons
in West Berlin.
"I do not recall having read any
stronger one in my time here of
what will happen if Western
powers attempt to break into Ber-
lin by force," said one veteran
sl plomat.
He was referring to the official
Tass News Agency declaration that
any Western use of force tp main-
tain access to Berlin would be met
by Soviet force.
Example of Tough Policy
Most diplomats called the Soviet
statement another example of the
Kremlin's tough policy, backed by
political and industrial successes,
of the past few months.
These sources found the Soviet
government equally determined to
keep the subject of German unifi-
cation separate from its proposal
to make West Berlin a disarmed
free city.
"It sounds, when reading the
statement, like the Kremlin and
the Western Powers are talking at
completely opposite ends," said one
ambassador. The Western Powers
want to discuss Berlin within the
framework of German reunifica-
tion. The Soviet Union shouts an
emphatic 'no' to that suggestion,
saying there can be no top level
meeting to discuss unification.
Anything Can Happen
"In the face of that situation,
anything can happen when the
Kremlin carries out its threat-
which I believe,it will-to transfer
its occupation powers to the East
German regime next May."
Neutral envoys said they were
pessimistic about the possibility
of bringing the sharply and bit-
terly opposing viewpoints of the
West and the Soviet Union to-
gether on West Berlin before the
end of the six-month deadline set
by Premier Nikita Khrushchev last
"It looks more and more like we
are heading for a new crisis. in
Europe," said one. "if the Soviet
Union turns over its occupation
powers to East Germany, and if
thereafter the East Germans at-
tempt to control or curtail the cor-
ridors between West Germany and
West Berlin anything can hap-
The Western Powers - the
United States, Britain and France
-refuse to recognize the Com-
munist government of East Ger-
Several envoys gave special at-
tention to this part of the Tass
"Any attempt to break into Ber-
,lin by force would signify an at-
tack upon the German Democratic
Republic (East Germany) and
thereby upon its allies under the
Warsaw Treaty."
"Unless there is an unexpected
change before the end of _this
month, it's going to be farcical to
say 'Happy New Year' and really
expect it."
Mosher Talks
With Schaadt
About Protest

Mosher Hall's protest against
residence hall adniinstrative poli-
cie~s was discussed by representa-
tives of the House Council and
Leonard A. Schaadt, Business
Manager of Residence Halls, at a
meeting yesterday.
"We made a great deal of prog-
ress in solving certain of the prob-
lems," Schaadt commented. The
situation concerning permission
to eat late when there is a class
conflict has already been taken
care of, Schaadt mentioned.
To work out the rest of the
problems, Schaadt will hold a
meeting with the residence hall
dietitians early next week.
"We will use the Mosher pro-
test as a basis for working out
the pressing matters." he added.
At a press conference follow-
ing yesterday's Board of Regents
meeting. University President
Harlan Hatcher said that the pre-

Burton Ra'cks Up 38,
Last year at this time a pack of Bulldogs defeated a band of
Wolverines in a battle that upset the "law of the wild." However, last
evening the Wolves showed that things are status quo again-with
just one fact:
Michigan's Wolverines 86, Butler's Bulldogs 70,
And the wildest Wolverine of all in Yost Field House was senior
co-captain M. C. Burton, whose play before last night was far from
his 1957-58 pace. .
Burton completely disjoined Butler's defense by jump-shooting
his way to a Michigan single-game scoring record with 38 points and

Editor Says
ITU Strike
Nears End
The Washtenaw branch of the
International Typographical Union
has voted to go back to work for
the Ann Arbor News, according to
News editor Arthur Gallagher.
Joe Jameson, of the local branch
of the ITU said, "I think it's just
about over."
Gallagher said last night the
paper could expect to start pub-
lishing early next week, but there
were still certain little angles to
be worked out.
Statement Issued
This followed a joint statement
by management and the ITU,
which indicated that there was a
firm basis for an early settlement
of the strikes against the Booth
Newspapers, Inc.
The Ann Arbor News is a mem-
ber of the chain.
Also included in the statement
was the announcement that the
local union committees are re-
turning to their cities to report the
offer by management to the local
The statement was issued by
James E. Sauter, the management
negotiator, and Joseph Bingel, who
represented the TU.
Locals Must Agree
Any agreement that is reached
by the top level negotiators will
have also to be agreed on by the
local unions before work can be
continued on the newspapers.
It was pointed out by Gallagher
that the approval of the conditions
set by the top level negotiators
does not have to be a unilateral
one as far as the local unions are
In fact, he continued, the nego-
tiation is going on in a different
basis in Flint and Grand Rapids.
Both the Union and the man-
agement spokesman said that the
offer by the management covered
the entire contract that had been
in dispute.
The ITU has been on strike
against the Booth Newspapers
since late in November.
During the early stages of the
strike Gallagher said among the
main issues under dispute were a
wage increase and an increase of
the fringe benefits.
Trains Run,
Extra Cars
Space on New York Central
trains is available for students
going home over Christmas, ticket
agent Alex Hahilton has reported.
Extra cars will be running from
Wednesday until Jan. 5, the ticket
office reported yesterday, with Fri-
day expected to be the peak.
Reserved coach seats are re-
quired only on- the 6 p.m. Twilight
Limited for Chicago, Hamilton
explained, and since cars will be
added, reservations may still be
All other trains, including the
eastbound New York Special (3:15
p.m.) and the Wolverine (6:32
p.m.), for New York City and Bos-
ton, will carry extra equipment
proportional to demand shown at
the ticket office. Reservations are
not required.
Sleeping accommodations on
these eastbound trains may be in
short supply, according to Hamil-
ton, but the railroad will attempt
to adjust to demand expressed.

To Borrow
May Need Funds
To Meet Payroll
The Regents yesterday author-
ized borrowing of funds -to meet
salaries and other expenses if pay-
ments are not forthcoming from
the state shortly.
Meanwhile in Lansing, State
Treasurer Sanford A. Br-own
termed prospects for the state's
three major universities receiving
funds this month "not very bright.
"Unless revenue comes in from
some unforeseen source I don't
know how we will be able to do
anything this month," Brown said.
Expects Payment
The state currently owes the
University $2.6 million for Novem-
ber, with a, December check for
the same amount now due. Vice-
president in Charge of Business
and Finance Wilbur K. Pierpont
said he expects a paymentefrom
the state this month.
He added thatrthe University
may need to borrow for a very
short time at the end of Decem-
ber. Last month the State Booard
of Agriculture, Michigan State
University's governing booard, au-
thorized that university to borrow
$900,000 to meet expenses because
state funds had failed.
"The problem is one of antici-
pating action on a financial prob-
lem which may or may not be
necessary by the end of Decem-
ber," Pierpont said. "The Regents
action will help us proceed in bor-
rowing if that becomes necessary."
Amount Unknown
Since there is a question as to
whether borrowing will be needed,
he said, the amount of the loan or
the rate of interest at which it can
be obtained are not known.. The
University will have to pay the
interest on any loan which it
makes to meet expenses.
The state paid $25.5 million
yesterday to county treasurers to
distribute to public school districts.
"We have tried to pace our pay-
ments so we don't fall behind on
welfare payments or endanger the
state payroll," he said.
In other action, University Presi-
dent Harlan Hatcher announced
that the first authorized Russian
text of Boris Pasternak's novel
"Dr. Zhivago," will be published by
the University Press in January.
The book has appeared previously
only in English translation ad as
a pirated Russian text.
Discussion of the Student Gov-
ernment Council and Faculty Sen-
ate resolutions on the Sigma Kap-
pa case were not discussed at the
meeting. Regent Eugene B. Power
suggested that since the Regents
are meeting with SGC next month
that would be the proper time for
discussion of the issue.

Top McGill
Michigan's recovering ice squad,
led by the inspired play of Bob
White and Gary Mattson, staged
a goal parade as they routed a
youthful and inept McGill team,
10-1, in the hockey home opener
last night.
Before a sparse crowd, coach Al
Renfrew's puck opportunists wast-
ed no time in breaking McGill's
back as they scored four goals in
the first 12 minutes of the game,
and then came back to slam home
six more against their tired op-
ponents in the final period.
White and Mattson scored two
goals and an assist each, to lead
the "parade" with the Wolverines
exhibiting great scoring balance
as the other tallies were divided
among six players.
Hayton Scores
Michigan scored early and fast
as defenseman Barry "bad boy"
Hayton, who later became in-
volved in two fights, opened the
scoring at 1:45 of the first period,
with Mattson's goal coming a few
minutes later on perfect passes
from center John Hutton and for-
ward Steve Bochen, respectively.
Sophomore Dale MacDonald
netted Michigan's fourth goal of
the period as he took a perfect
pass from Pat Cushing and cut
in on McGill goalie Jimmy Her-
ron, pulled him out of the net
and slammed the puck home.
The Wolverines played a slam-
bang type of game, body-checking
the smaller, inexperienced McGill
players every chance they got.
White, who checked McGill's

Good Percentage
Lanky 64" Burton, who had
averaged only 11.3 going into last
night's tilt, connected on 15 of 34
field goal attempts and dropped in
all eight of his free throw tries.
"Ten of those goals came on as-
sorted jump shots, ranging out to
25 feet.
This sharp-shooting enabled him
to remove Ron Kramer's 34-point
record-scored against Northwest-
ern three seasons ago-from the
Michigan archives. Burton also
erased the school and Field House
bests for field goals in one game.
With five seconds to play, most
of the sparse crowd of 2,500 were
on their feet, urging M. C.-whose
first name is just the two initials-
to crack Schlundt's record. Then,
on an out of bounds play, the
Wolverines tried to work it in to

Tidwell Hits 24th
So guard Dale Kingsbury whip-
ped the ball over to another scor-
ing sensation, John Tidwell and
the nonchalant sophomore layed
up the ball for his 24th point of
the night.
Did Burton, who put back-to-
back 19 point totals for the halves,
know he was going for the record?
"How could I help not knowing
when Terry (Miller) started throw-
ing me the ball every five seconds
in the last part of the game?" he
questioned after the game.

Acting chairmen for two departments and an associate director
of the University's Extension Service were appointed by the Regents.
Prof. Leslie A. White was appointed acting chairman of the an-
thropology department for next semester, while department chairman
Prof. James N. Spuhler is on leave.
Prof. Ronald Freedman was appointed acting chairman of the
sociology department for next semester and the 1959 summer session.
Prof. Amos Hawley, the depart-,,
ment chairman, will be on sabbati-
cal leave during this period.

The University will ask the
State Department to open Ann
Arbor to Russian visitors.
"The issue of why we are off
limits ought to be pressed; if this
requires a letter from the Regents,
that is what we will do," Univer-
sity President Harlan Hatcher
said following the Regents meet-
ing yesterday.
Ann Arbor was placed off limits
by the State Department on Jan.
3, 1955, when closed areas were
instituted in the United States.
Russians must now obtain special
permission to enter the area. This
was done, President Hatcher ex-
plained, both as "retaliation" for
Russia's closing certain areas to
Americans and because Ann Ar-
bor is located in a defense area.
Situation Reviewed
The University is informally re-
viewing this situation now with
"key people" in the State Depart-
ment, President Hatcher said. Re-
gent Roscoe Bonisteel said he
Would hesitate to petition the
State Department on thematter,.
The Regents took no action on
the issue but President Hatcher
said he "will carry it forward."
The Regents want the area
opened, if possible, before Presi-
dent Hatcher makes a contem-
plated trip to Russia in April as
head of a United States cultural
exchange delegation.
"We should ask the State De-
partment for consideration to re-
ciprocate and receive Russians in
light of our President's visit," Re-
gent Donald Thurber said.
Permitted Twice
In two instances this semester,
the State Department Permitted
Russian visitors to enter Ann Ar-
bor. A delegation of nine plastics
engineers was permitted to tour
campus in November.
During Thanksgiving Alexel I.
Markushevich, Soviet deputy min-
ister of education and Khasan
Rashydov, Uzhbek minister of ed-
ucation, were permitted a one-day
visit to Ann Arbor.
Markushevich headed the dele-
gation of nine Soviet educators
who were entertained at the Uni-
versity's Dearborn Center.
Friends Invited
Prof. Arthur J. Lohwater of
the mathematics department in-
vited him to Ann Arbor for
Thanksgiving Day because of
their long-standing friendship,
After a two or three day wait,
he received the necessary State
Department pe r mi sso n, Pof
Lohwater explained. Rashydov
also received permission to enter
the city and was entertained by
Lyle M. Nelson, director of Un-
versity Relations.
"To be cut off from direct con-
tact with Soviet scholars is detri
mental to the potential of the
University on an international
scale, for with the large foreign
student population here, this 16

Coeds Revive Old Tradition at Engine Arch

It was crowded beneath the Engineering Arch last night at the
bewitching hour of midnight.
Nearly 50 people waited breathlessly for the Burton Tower
chimes. This was the night women were to become coeds.
It all started before Thanksgiving vacation when two men; Paul
Springer, '61E, and Bruce Levin, '62E, decided that over half the
women on campus were not officially coeds.
Tradition has it that in order to become a coed in the University,
a woman must be kissed at midnight under the Engine Arch.
In order to remedy the condition, the two men typed stencils
and sent them to social chairmen in Alice Lloyd and Mary Markley,
declaring that in the best interests of Michigan tradition, they were
establishing "Become a Coed Night." They asked if there were any
women who might want to be "fixed up."

contest the fine he received.
Moral support has come from
other areas. One Ann Arbor min-
ister wrote Mitchell earlier this
week, sending a five dollar bill to
offset the fine. The minister said
in the letter, "This makes me mad
as the devil."
Many students have also come
to the aid of Mitchell. "People
have come up to me on the street,
and given me pennies," he added.
"I guess that they expect me to
continue putting pennies into
parking meters. Most of the people
are complete strangers," he added.
He said he has done this be-
fore, both here in Ann Arbor and'
in Washington, D.C., his home.
This is the first time that the
police have ever picked me up for
doing it, he declared.
Last night Mitchell said that
he didn't know if he would do it
