4 U To Offer
The political science department
will offer a new course that will
deal with the labor union and its
activity in politics.
The course, "Labor and Amer-
ican Politics, 117" will be taught
by Lawrence M. Rogin, assistant
director of the Institute of Labor
and Industrial Relations.
Rogin said that the course will
deal with the internal organiza-
tion of labor unions and their re-
lationship with the political par-
ties. It will begin with a general
history of the trade union move-
ment, he continued.
The course is primarily for un-
dergraduates, but can be elected
by graduate students, Rogin add-
concerning an instance of mis-
conduct which occurred on No-
vember 8, 1958. From the testi-
mony presented the Council es-
tablished that alcoholic beverages
were present and consumed in the
house at a party held in connec-
tion with Fathers Weekend.
The Council felt that, although
the fathers brought the intoxicat-
ing beverages and these were not
purchased by the house, the offi-
cers of the house were present and
fully aware of the situation and
did not assume their responsibility
in asking that the intoxicants be
removed from the premises. Al-
though the intoxicants were
served to women students and
minors, it was in the presence of
their parents. The Council rec-
ommends that Chi Phi fraternity
be placed on social probation un-
til March 1, 1959 and that a fine
of $100 be imposed. The Council
would further warn Chi Phi fra-
ternity that any future violation
will be dealt with more severely.
Social probation prohibits the
fraternity from having any so-
cial functions until the end of the

The passing of the Fourth
French Republic was considered
to be the single most important
development of the year at last
night's "Background" radio panel
Prof. Preston Slosson of the1
history department said France
has adopted a constitution more
like the United States' "in which1
the executive has a position al-
most independent of the legisla-
tive branch of the government."
His statement was part of the
panel's discussion on WUOM-FM
of the important news develop-
ments of 1958.
Cites Significant Events
Prof. Henry L. Bretton of the
political science department add-
ed that the most significant series
of events were those directly con-
nected with what "we normally
call the cold war."
Prof. George Peek, of the po-
litical science department, the
panel's moderator, initiated a dis-
cussion of the most surprising
event of the year.
Prof. Bretton felt that the ma-
rines landing in Lebanon was the
most startling. It was surprising
that the Marines had entered the
country after the Korean War dif-
ficulties, he said.
Prof. Slosson commented that
Mao Tse-tung's recent resignation
as premier of Red China was the
most surprising event, particular-
ly as it "cast no shadow before it."
The nmost menacing develop-
ment is the threatened siege of
Berlin, Prof. Slosson said. The last
air lift over East Germany was
the closest we got to the third
world war, he explained.
Prof. Bretton did not consider
the Berlin crisis as Just a passing
thing. "It will be with us until it
is solved one way or the other,"
.Talks of Berlin
Prof. Slosson remarked that "in
Berlin and Matsu you never know
how far your oppdnent is bluffing
and how far he Is prepared to
fight on the issue."
Prof. Bretton did not regard the
developments in the Far East as
particularly menacing at the pres-
ent time. It maybe that the So-
viet Uion is alternating crises
between Berlin and Quemoy, he
Prof. Slosson did not see a solu-
tion to the Formosa trouble with-
in the next three years.
PITTSBURGH (P)-The Un-
versity of Pittsburgh yesterday an-
nounced receipt of a 12-million-
dollar gift from the A. W. Mellon
Educational and Charitable Trust.
More than half of the grant,
$6,150,000, will be used to support
50 pre-doctoral and six to nine
postdoctoral fellowships in the
humanities, natural science and
social science fields.
Prof. Bretton added that 1958
showed an increase in strength
in forces in the United States for
recognition of Red China.
Don't Want China
This was also the year that it
became evident that we no longer
encourage Chiang Kai-shek, head
of the Nationalist Chinese. to try
to enter the mainland, he said.
Considering the Middle East.
Prof. Bretton said the Iraqi revo-
lution makes it "possible that we
are in a new phase in the eruption
of -nationalism in the Middle East.
It is distinctly possible that the
nationalism will not really sub-
side until it has altered the en-
In addition, he said, the Soviet
Union has relaxed control over
its own people.
"They have actually relaxed
their security measures." he said.
On the national front, Prof.
Peek said that the size of the
Democratic congressional victory
is the significant thing.
Prof. Slosson added that it was
a liberal victory. "Conservatives
from John Bricker (R-Ohio) to'
W. Knowland (R-Calif.) were de-
Prof. Slosson mentioned that
he thought the admission of Alas-
ka was significant. This is the
first new state since 1912, he said.
In Michigan, Prof. Bretton said
that no one expected Gov. 0. M.
Williams to finish at the bottom
of his ticket in the last election.
Considering science Prof. Bret-
ton said 1958 may "very well be
compared in history with 1492."
At both dates science discovered
new worlds, he explained, in 1492,
America, and in 1958 "we have ac-
tually begun to discover outer

Prof. Bretton said he considered
the technological and economic
aid given by Russia to be a more
severe threat to "our security than

He also added that in 1958 it
became apparent that the Soviet
Union has been building up over
the years a capital surplus for
