Kearns Says
Music Vital
To Cold War
Man's satellites should play mu-
sic, Rep. Carroll D. Kearns (R-;
Pa.) told a University audience
Kearns keynoted the 14th an-
nual Midwestern Conference on
School Vocal and Instrumental,
Music. About 1.500 music educat-
ors heard his talk.
Scientists should realize that
"the greatest instrument at their
command is the ear," he said.
"If I could put a sputnik into the
air. I would like to have it wired
for sound and have it play 'Peace
on earth. good will to men' instead
of 'beep, beep'," he went on.
Talked to Ike
"I mentioned this to President
Eisenhower. Evidently, my idea
got across because he did send
such a message up with our last
moon. Next time I hope it will play
A widely-known conductor.
Kearns said that in the cold war
"we do more through the medium
of music than we do through any
other instrument at hand today."
"I think we should have a mem-
ber of the cabinet as cultural di-
rector of the country," he added.
"The Russians use culture as their
greatest instrument of propa-
Asked to Conduct
Kearns was recently asked by
Secretary of State Dulles to con-
duct four concerts in Iceland with
the Air Force Symphony Orches-
Hre described his experience
thusly: "I found myself on the
way to Iceland -with a 100-piece
orchestra, two harps and five
"Iceland " is our most strategic
base in that area of the world.
Icelanders love music. Russia went
in with their artists and told the
Icelanders that the USSR was the
nation of culture-and that Amer-
icans were barbarians and the
militaristic power of the world.
Concert Praised
"Everyone attends the concerts
there in formal dress. I conducted
Beethoven's 'Fifth Symphony'
from memory with the orchestra.
Next day the papers came out
lauding our concert. They said,
'We don't have any member of our
Parliament who could conduct the
orchestra as well as a member of
the U.S. Congress.'
"Three days after the concert,
our negotiations were cleared up.
We still have our base in Iceland.
Music did it."

Hours for the library at the Wo-
men's League will be extended
during the final examination
period due to the later hours for
women, according to Lynne Betts,
'60, chairman of the house com-
mittee of the League.
Starting Monday, Jan. 17 and
continuing until Thursday, Jan.
29, the library will be open from
9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and from 7 p.m.
to 11:30 p.m. from Monday
through Friday and on Sunday
from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and from 7
p.m. to 11:30 p.m., Miss Betts said.
b The library which is located on
the third floor of the League is
open to women only.
Listening Rooms Open
In addition to the library, the
three Barbara C. Little listening
rooms on third floor of the League
will also be open during the ex-
tended hours.
Miss Betts commented that
these rooms are helpful for women
who are studying for music liter-
ature and that all the records
needed are available.
Students who are not taking
music literature but who like to
study to music may also use the
facilities of the music rooms,
which have sound piped in from
turntables in the library.

Both the library and the listen-
ing rooms have tables for writing
as well as large, overstuffed chairs
for those who like to relax as they
Books May Circulate
Although the League library is
intended primarily as a study li-
brary, it is filled with books which
may circulate, Miss Betts said.
Many of the books are about
drama. Alice Crocker Lloyd, form-
er dean of women of the Univer-
sity, donated a large selection of
books on this subject to the
League library and additions have
been made throughout the years.
In addition to the books on dra-
ma, the library is a basic resource
library, Miss Betts said.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - A new
parking proposal was made re-
cently at Syracuse University.
In order to alleviate their im-
mense parking problem, they for-
bid sophomores to keep cars on
the campus.
Since then Joint Student Legis-
lature repealed the ban and plans
to assign parking spaces on a "first
come-first served" priority basis.
The Legislature further suggested
that a Parking Policy Committee
be established. 'The committee
would meet at least once a year
to formulate and coordinate ad-
ministrative policies and to imple-
ment resolutions.
