W I NTHE past month University women
have been given a pat on the back and then
a slap in the face . . . all over the same issue.
In December, the Women's Judiciary Council
and the Dean of Women's office decided that
the women students on campus were old enough
to be trusted to stay out until midnight during
the week. The move was proclaimed as a reno-
vation of an antiquated concept that women
should be in by 10:30 p.m.
A few days ago the slap in the face came
when the judiciary body and the Dean of
Women's office decided to increase penalties
for lateness , . . the difference in this decision
being that the decision was made without giv-
ing women students any forewarning. In addi-
tion the action taken seems to imply that
women students are really not trustworthy in
that they purposely came in late.
The increased penalty of a half-hour for the
first five minutes a girl is late and of another
half-hour for each additional five late minutes
was designed "to discourage lateness." The
whole explanation seems to imply that women

are late not due to unavoidable circumstances,
but because they purposely want to come home
late . . . for any reason of their choosing.
Somehow the whole idea is a little incon-
gruous. It isn't very logical that the extra five
minutes one night are worth it to the student
who will then have to come in a half-hour
early the next night.
PERHAPS a more realistic attitude toward
the concept would be to allow the student
to accumulate ten late minutes throughout the
semester without a penalty and then call her
before the judiciary council for ahy additional
lateness. This would allow for those unavoidable
circumstances which produce lateness and
would be a compromise to those who maintain
the necessity of still penalties.
The initial decision extending women's hours
conceded that the University women were
trustworthy . . . the most recent development
indicates that it is time to return to the think-
ing behind the initial action.

The Picture's Still Dim

THE BUREAU of Appointments and Occupa-
tional Information reports higher salaries
offered by the nation's colleges. Simultaneously,
it also reports degree requirements going down.
And after making this announcement-un-
doubtedly heartening to applicants for posi
tions, but discouraging to those conscious of
worth in education - orficials at the bureau
casually slip out from under its implications.
They leave their facts and figures on salaries
Fair Warning
THE HERITAGE of the American woman
includes the right to dress as she pleases, a
male fashion designer proclaimed yesterday as
he unveiled the creations he hopes will please
her in 1959.
This needed to be said, since even the sack
and balloon of 1958 failed to stamp out com-
pletely the notion that women somehow dress
to please men.
But there is no reason to assume the hypo-
thetical "American woman" will exercise this
prerogative beyond abandoning last year's styles
and embracing the new. In this, designer Bill
Blass is fortunate.
Just how fortunate he is (that women will
continue to vie with one another in the fashion-
world) will not be clear until his brain-children
have been paraded before objective (male)
observers. But a rough idea can be gotten by
the description of one of the hits of the show:
"A short white chiffon dance dress with e
leopard fur bodice."
That sounds as unlikely as the short leopard
fur dance dress with no bodice at all once
sported by Alley Oop's Ooola (albeit less appeal-
ing.) But the fashion writers liked it, along
with a formal gown with "saucer-size" polka
dots, and it looks like another tough year for
the men.

as a standing hope. But about degrees, "Well
..." it is said, "this doesn't really mean quality
slipping . . . only in certain areas of shortages
are schools less demanding, simply because of
the necessity of getting instructors."
Right now there is a shortage of math, phys-
ics and chemistry instructors. The shortage will
not stop there. Private business- lures physical
scientists, and private business will soon drain
off experts in other fields. Already, advertising
firms are hiring more and more psychologists
and sociologists. And the national govern-
ment's increasing need for experts advice will
offer further competition.
"Certain areas" of shortage will become more
numerous, until they approach a generally in-
finite area. An answer: Encourage graduate
work, and teaching as vocations, by citing big-
ger and better salaries, just as the bureau did
by publicizing higher average salaries.
BUT THE RAW FACTS of variations cannot
be seen in statisti'cal generalizations. Many
individual considerations enter into a final
salary offering. Unless the salary is broken
down to these considerations-an impossible
task-it says little.
A salary is not even a correct evaluation. A
50-year-old man decides he has had enough of
industrial turmoil and retires to the secluded
life of the campus intellectual. The university
must pay him a rather high salary, at least
until it discovers how much of a teacher he
actually is. On the other hand, a graduate with
uncreased doctoral degree in briefcase will be
offered lower pay, although he may be a finer
The inspiration gleaming from the salary fig-
ures released by the bureau cannot be based on
anything the figures actually say. Furthermore,
if' higher salaries are a reality, they are only
another side to a dull picture. For they spell
out the shortage, and a higher demand, for a
deteriorating supply of college instructors.

4e etc
Group Discusses Athletic Board

Daily Staff Writer
WEDNESDA"Y night Student
Government Council discussed
a motion to ask the Regents to
change the composition of the stu-
dent membership on the Board in
Control of Intercollegiate Athlet-
ics. John Herrnstein and Stan
Noskin,hthe two present members
of the Board were invited to join
the discussion.
Noskin: I can't see how some-
thing like this can be changed at
all. For example, I don't see how
a non-athlete could understand
how "M" letters are given out or
how a change in athletic sched-
ules should be made.
Herrnstein: I think we're for-
tunate to have even two students
on the Board. Increasing the num-
ber of students would not affect
the Board's decisions. Very few of
their proposals are settled by one
vote either way. Therecommen-
dations of the Athletic Director
are generally carried through.
*. * *
(AFTER these general remarks
the question period followed.)
Bob Ashton: Will you explain
how an average non-athlete stu-
dent would find out about mat-
ters of eligibility, etc. How do you
gain information about athletics
that is not available to ordinary
Noskin: I don't know how you
would other than being a mem-
ber of a team.
David Kessel: There has been
some question of student mem-

bers of the Board not going to
crucial meetings. Will you explain
why you have not gone to some
Herrnstein: I have left a couple
of meetings when there has been
discussion, for example, of my
coach. It would be like discussing
your own father.
Phil Zook: How many meetings
does the Board hold and how
many of them have you been to?
Noskin: The Board held about
four or five this fall. I wasn't able
to go to any of them because of
athletic conflicts since they were
all held on Friday night. The last
meeting of the fall was the Thurs-
day before Christmas and I had
already gone home.
Herrnste in: I have gone to all
the meetings that injury ortath-
letic conflicts didn't prevent me.
Ron Bassey: Would you clarify
what you mean by matters which
students wouldn't understand?
Noskin: There is, for example,
the question of changing to a ten-
game, "round-robin" football sea-
son in the Big Ten.
The motion was tabled on a mo-
tion by Ashton with a request for
more information. No specific
time was specified for re-examin-
ation of the issue.
. 4 . *
AMONG THE comments in let-
ters from Prof. Karl. Litzenberg
and Prof. Marcus Plant was the
idea that the new proposal made
a distinction between "students"
and "'athletes."
As unfortunate as this may
seem it is true.

Athletics at the University are
not Corinthian - athletics have
become a big-time business both
from the amount of money put
into it and the recuirements of
the athletes. There is, a difference,
contrary to some opinion, between
the $150,000 a year business of the
Board in Control of Student Pub-
lications and the Board in Control
of Intercollegiate Athletics' multi-
million dollar budget.
There is also some question as
to the true superiority of athletes
in their knowledge of sports. More
likely they might be experts in
the sports they participate In: two
or three of the University's dozen
varsity sports. Comment was of-
fered that athletes scrutinize the
sports pages of a newspaper close-
ly. But there are thousands of
non-athletes who do the same
every morning.
In short, there is no valid rea-
son why an athlete should natur-
ally be the best, or only,. source
of potential student representa-
tives to the Board although they
too should have a say. A "regular
student" would, moreover, be rec-
ommended because he is not
handicapped with conflicting ath-
letic responsibilities which could
cause him to miss meetings. Neith-
er would he be subject to criticism
or disapproval from his own "in-
group" of the athletic world for
voicing unpopular opinions.
The criticisms of the proposal,
while they contain valid argu-
ments, are no excuse for its de-

delightful little French mouse,
both of whom are chased by Tom
with his usuAl gusto.
NEXt, the silver screen is de-
voted to something called "Some
Came Running" based upon a
twelve hundred page "novel" by
James Jones whose literary debut,
"From Here to Eternity" was made
into a motion picture Hollywood
can be proud of. All copies of this
picture should be taken out and
buried with the radioactive waste
material so we can forget it ever
It'sda sure bet that the high
powered cast, Frank Sinatra. Shir-
ley MacLaine, Dean Martin, Mar-
tha Hyer, Arthur Kennedy, and
Leora Dana, couldn't believe that
the script handed them by the
moguls of MGM was meant to be
taken seriously because it trots out
every old and feeble war horse of
a chiche- ,the hypocritical socia
climber, his nagging middle-aged
wife, the virginal school teacher, a
floozy with a heart of gold and
an I.Q. of zero, ad nauseum.
* * *
THE MOVIE concerns a wan-
derer and occasional writer, Frank
Sinatra, who returns to the scene
of his youth, Parkman Ind., right
across the river from Peyton Place.
Most of the scenes alternate be-
tween the Better Homes and Gar-
dens atmosphere of the nice side
of town and a bar called Shmitty's,
most of whose female patrons are
employed-it seems almost sym-
bolic-in a brassiere factory,
The picture even has a chase
sequence in which poor Shirley
MacLaine is shot by her drunken
ex-boy friend. She dies touchingly,
but the movie lurches on.

THIS IS NOT the first time that
Secretary Dulles, having made
some generalized statement on
German reunification in an effort
to avoid the appearance of in-
transigence, has been forced to
explain that the West is not go-
ing to surrender, either.
So far, every suggestion made
for reunification, except the
Western demand for free elec-
tions, has contained the possibility
of a permanent foothold for the
Communist institutions of East
Every time any alternative for
free elections is mentioned, the
West German government fears
it is being threatened with the
sort of infiltration practiced when
the Communists were taking over
East European governments after
World War II.
There are strong elements in
West Germany which would be
willing to run some risks to obtain
unification. Any sign that Britain,
France or the United States might
also be willing to do so immediate-
ly puts 'the Bonn government un-
der political pressure to preserve
its position.
GERMANY will be unified. The
present situation is only a break
in the trend which persisted
through centuries of division. Ger-
many is no Korea or Vietnam,
which have had no real political
entity within memory. ,
Unification will come, however,
only through some inconceivable
conviction on the part of the Com-
munists that Germany isn't worth
the trouble, which would mean an
end to the cold war, or through
violent upheaval. ,
To discuss ways and means of

unification, therefore, is an at-
tempt to take the whole issue out
of context. If the cold war can be
settled, then ways and means of
unification cease being a prob-

Mikoyan Unbelievable

Castro Regime Under Double Fire

Associated Press Foreign News Analyst
S ANASTAS I. MIKOYAN pulling the collec-
tive American leg? The Soviet Communist
party is arguing violently against the very ideas
Anastas I. Mikoyan voices in his spectacular
tour of the United States.
To Americans, the Soviet Deputy Premier
pictures the Soviet Union as eager for coopera-
tion with the capitalist world.
For the benefit of world communists, Mos-
cow's most important theoretical journal blasts
the idea that there ever can be any compromise
with world capitalism.
The Kremlin's thinking is exposed in the
current issue of the magazine "Kommunist." A
long article makes a new and ferocious attack
upon Tito's Yugoslav Communists for daring
to hint that the Western system might one day
evolve into something with which world Com-
munism might live in peace.
THE ARTICLE is a resumption of Moscow's
crusade against what it calls revisionism,
Yugoslavia is warned there is only one way to
Communism--the Soviet way. Capitalism must
be- overthrown everywhere and succeeded by
dictatorship of the proletariat. It is wrong, says
"Kommunist," for a Red nation to collaborate
with capitalist countries and make apologies
for the capitalist system.
The article deplores what it calls Yugoslavia's
bgh Sirhnau & ilu

"increasing rapprochement and cooperation
with the capitalist camp." The proper path fo
countries of Communist, it says, is to march
forward "in a united front, on the basis of
friendship, cooperation and mutual assistance,
independently of the capitalist world and de-
spite it."
Intended only for Communist consumption,
the article has little in common with the philos-
ophy espoused by Mikoyan in the United States.
He speaks of cooperation. He wants relations
with the United States on the basis of "da"--
yes-instead or "nyet"--no--in the pursuit of
world peace.
In the United Nations, the Soviet Union has
said "nyet" 87 times in vetoes. In disarmament
negotiations, the Soviet Union has thundered
a resounding "nyet" 13 times to Western pro-
posals. The Soviet record in the diplomatic cold
war has produced little except "nyet."
N THE LIGHT of this record Americans can
ask: What are the purposes of Mikoyan's
propaganda broadsides in the United States?
Is he hoping to spread the notion among Ameri-
ca's allies that Washington and Moscow might
someday come to some sort of agreement inde-
pendently of the other countries?
Is Mikoyan attempting to lull American
businessmen into a sense of security which can
hamper the prosecution of a firm U.S. policy?
Crises still lurk behind every corner-the Far
East, the Middle East. Berlin, to name a few.
The strings to manipulate such crises remain in
Soviet hands. Sweet reasonableness can turn
into steel stubbornness at any moment.

EX-REBEL leader Fidel Castro
and his newly formed revolu-
tionary government are under an-
other kind of fire this week.
Outraged Americans are bitter-
ly protesting the executions of ex-
dictator Fulgencio Batista follow-
ers judged guilty of "inhumane
crimes" prior to Batista's down-
fall on New Years Day.
As of yesterday, an estimated
195 secret police, Batista officers
and supporters had gone down
under the rifles of the revolution-
ists. Hastily formed revolutionary
courts swiftly brought the suspects
to trial in the name of Cuban jus-
The trials were carried out so
quickly that a storm of denuncia-
tions flooded the Havana presi-
dential palace. Perhaps the loud-
est protest came from Rep. Eman-
uel Celler. on the floor of the

House yesterday. Rep. Celler called
on Castro to "follow the cour-
ageous and majestic example of
General de Gaulle" toward the Al-
gerian rebels.
* * *
"FIDEL CASTRO boasts that
the slaughter shall continue de-
spite condemnatory world opin-
ion. Many innocents have been
caught in the dragnet. It may be
a gay pastime for Castro but it
bodes ill for Cuba," Rep. Celler
The infuriated congressman
didn't give his mysterious sources
concerning the alleged fact that
"many innocents have been
caught in the dragnet." News re-
ports concerning the executions
are still clouded in a fog of un-
certainty. As for Rep. Celler's call
for amnesty patterned after Pres-
ident de Gaulle's decision recent-
ly, Castro is in no position to re-
lease the accused "war criminals."
Thousands of Cubans still have

the image of Batista's inhumanity
engraved on their minds. Some
20,000 Cubans are reported to
have died under Batista rule. If
the revolutionary courts didn't
move quickly to bring the accused
to trial, Cuba might well be
bathed in a deeper and less con-
trollable "blood bath" than it sup-
posedly is now. Dr. Roberto Agra-
monte, the newly installed Minis-
ter of State voiced this view yes-
terday when he called on the
United States to understand that
"charity cannot stand in the way
of justice."
THE CASTRO "blood bath" is a
trickle compared to the Batista
slaughter. Even though Rep.
Wayne Hays (D-Ohio), has prom-
ised to question closely Assistant
of the Secretary of State Roy
Rubottom on "what the State De-
partment is going to do to calm
Castro down before he depopulates
Out of a population of six mil-
lion, 20,000 Cubans have died at
the hand of Batista compared
with 195 shot by the revolutionary
government. Restriction of the
press, radio and freedom of speech
in Cuba during the Batista regime
prevented the accurate count from
being revealed.
Cuban opinion on the interven-
tion of America into the internal
affairs of Cuba can best be
