House Passes Aid Measure

billion foreign aid bill preserving
the President's discretionary au-
thority to give limited aid to Com-
munist countries was sent to the
White House yesterday.
The compromise measure, pre-
viously passed by the Senate, was
approved by the House, 221 to 162.
Included in the bill is $600 mil-
lion for the Alliance for Progress
for this year. The measure also
sets that limit on assistance to
Latin America for each of the
three following years. President
John F. Kennedy had requested
$800 million for each of the three
fiscal years through 1966.
Short of Request
The authorizing legislation was
$206.5 million short of the current
year total requested by the Ken-
nedy Administration. It still must
be backed up by later appropria-


tion of funds. The money bill is
subject to further reductions.
Included in the total are prior
authorizations of $1.25 billion for
the Development Loan Fund and
$1.5 billion for military assistance.
The completed bill eliminated
restrictions placed in it by the
Senate some years ago to with-
hold aid to Communist Poland and
Yugoslavia and limit aid to India.
UN Loans OK'd
Also struck from the compro-
mise measure was a House prohi-
bition against loans for special
financial aid to the United Na-
tions until all members have paid
up their assessments for peace-
making operations in the Congo
and in the Gaza Strip.
Retained, on the other hand,
was language to suspend aid to
any country seizing United States
property without arranging for

fair compensation within six
Aimed at Brazil and other
countries where American busi-
ness has been expropriated or
threatened with seizure, this pro-
vision was softened to provide for
arbitration of claims.

Russian Scientists Describes
esearch with Cancer Virus
By The Associated Press
MOSCOW-New evidence that all cancers may be caused by
hit-and-run viruses was offered yesterday by a top Russian virologist.
Prof. L. A. Zilber of Moscow indicated in a talk to the world's
leading cancer fighters that experiments with animals suggest:
That all human cancers may be caused by viruses which remain
dormant in most people but might be brought into malignant action

... Congo rumors

SMulls Forcing
Katanga Unit
Into- Congo
Secretary-General U Tfhant was
reported to have asked his 19-na-
tion Congo advisory committee pri-
vately yesterday whether the Unit-
ed Nations should use force as a
last resort to bring Katanga prov-
ince back into the Congo.
Members of the committee said
he also asked them whether they
thought he needed a new mandate
from the Security Council to apply
economic pressure on Katanga
ani whether they thought the
council should meet on the Congo
question soon.
They reported that many among
them asked for time to consult
their governments. It was agreed
that the committee would meet
again next Tuesday to give Thant
the answers, informants said.
Thant and the chief of the UN
Congo operation, Robert K. A.
Gardiner of Ghana, both address-
ed the committee at a long, closed-
doors meeting.
Informants said Thant asked the
committee generally what he
should do about the Congo.
* He remarked that the UN was
spending so much there that by
early next year it would use up
even the proceeds of an emergen-
cy bond issue.
They said that on his recent
trip to Europe, Thant asked Bel-
gium and other countries to pres-
sure Union Miniere, the big Brus-
sels mining corporation, to pay the'
needy Leopoldville central govern-
ment taxes it now pays to Presi-
dent Moise Tshombe on copper
and cobalt mined in Katanga.

Disappearing Act
But he stressed that the experi-
mental evidence suggests that vi-
ruses, while seemingly responsible
for triggering cancerous growths
mostly disappear afterwards -
thereby accounting for the fact
thatdso far no virus has been iso-
lated from a human cancer.
At the same time he told an
audience of several thousand
scientists at the cancer congress
that recent progress in his con-
troversial field justifies optimism
that the cancer problem eventually
will be solved.
The Russia said work in his
laboratory shows that while an-
imals develop cancer after being
exposed to certain. viruses, no evi-
dence of the virus could be found
40 days after the cancers appeared.

cept that viruses can, under cer-
tain conditions, transform a nor-
mal cell into a cancerous one-

Prof. Zilber envisioned the pro-
cess as possibly involving a trans-
mittal by a virus or a "new in-
formation" to the hereditary
mechanism within anormal cell-
with the virus thereafter serving
only as a "passenger" while the
cancer developed independently.
Thus, he suggested, future at-
tacks on cancer might be based
not only on trying to kill the can-
cer, but also on cutting off the
pathways of inflammation between
cell and viruses by chemical

Bursley said that the group will
spend Friday inspecting the ter-
rain, roads, harbors and other
facilities near the tip of the Penin-
sula Keweenaw.
Following that a public meeting
will be held at Tech.
On Saturday the committee will
turn its efforts toward the in-
spection of terrain and mining
facilities in the Victoria Falls
area. The men will find up their
tour with a dinner meeting in
Ironwood Saturday night.
'Modest Start'
But Bursley was cautious. "We
don't want anyone to jump to the
conclusion we are suggesting an-
other Cape Canaveral for the UP.
We just think a proper investiga-
tion and a modest start, carefully
considered and coordinated with
all interested parties, including
our Canadian friends, is a desir-
able goal.
"We have been in contact with

Police Break U
Negroes' March
ALBANY, Ga. (A)-A march o
the downtown area by several hun
dred singing Negroes was climaxe
last night by a minor outbreak o
violence in this racially tens
Georgia city.
One state trooper was hit in th
face by a rock and dozens of bot
tles and other objects were tosse
at officers and newsmen by a Ne
gro crowd that formed swiftly afte
40 Negroes and one white ma
were arrested.
Several minor incidents wer
reported and the fire departmen
was harassed by a series of fals
alarms in the Negro section.
Close Down Stores
Then police for the first tim
moved into the Harlem section o
this city of 58,000 and dispersed
the Negroes. Officers ordered al
bars and liquor stores in tha
area shut down.
The violence came a few hour
after a United States Fifth Cir
cuit Court of Appeals judge in At
lanta stayed a district court judge'
temporary injunction banning re
sumption of demonstrations.
Police had designated in advance
an area in which no demonstra-
tions would be allowed, and warn-
ed the Negroes they would be ar-
rested if they crossed into that

ed the blocked off section; thec
number had dwindled as most of

King Speaks
The Negroes were urged on by
Martin Luther King Jr. at a mass
rally where an integration leader
disclosed court action aimed at
crumbling segrgeation barriers in
public facilities.
The prospect of daily mass
marches was indicated by Charles
Jones of the Student Nonviolent
Coordinating Committee. Jones
said, "Some of you have a job to-
night, tomorrow night, the next
day and the next day-I think
Thursday night is my night."
Earlier in the day the Negroes
won the right to continue demon-
Etrations without fear of being in
contempt of federal court. One
federal judge granted a stay of a
restraining order issued by anoth-
er federal judge last week.
Court Move
After that, a Negro attorney dis-
losed the move to seek through
federal courts the desegregation of
ill public facilities in Albany.
King vowed that mass demon-
trations would be resumed.
"We have no alternative but to
engage in peaceful nonviolent pro-

WASHINGTON (P) - Hot dis-

average one for each 3,266 people.'

Unless reapportionment is en-
acted with dispatch, the court
said, the job must be done by judi-
cial decree.
The Rhode Island Supreme
Court ruled thatthe general as-
Ssembly has an obligation to re-
apportion its house of representa-
tives on the basis of the 1960 cen-
sus. Despite wide population shifts
in Rhode Island since World War
II, there has been no reapportion-
ment since 1930.
Expect Session
Although the state supreme
court said it has no power to re-
quire a special session of the gen-
eral assembly, there was a strong
expectation one would be called.
Gov. John A. Notte Jr., Democrat,
reserved comment.
Cranston and Warwick, growing
suburbs of Providence, have been
displaying much more interest in
redistricting than the rural areas
or Providence proper, which lost
population between 1950 and 1960.
Kansas Action
In Kansas, a district judge took
under consideration legal action
initiated by a group of newspaper-
men seeking to establish a test
reapportionment case.
Sought is an injunction against
use of the present Kansas appor-
tionment law.
The suit contends the state and
federal constitutions have been
violated by the legislature's failure
to reapportion every five years.

Mutual Blasts
The two met after attending a
session of the 17-nation disarma-
ment conference at which each
accused the other of blocking pro-
gress on disarmament.
Rusk, Gromyko and British
Foreign Secretary Lord Home ex-
pressed desires to end the arms
race. But that's as far as they got
in the first session after a recess
last Thursday.
Rusk declared repeated Soviet
declarations that Communism will
eventually dominate the world
tend to stall disarmament.
Never Open
Gromyko declared the Soviet
Union would never open up its
military bases for inspection by
international disarmament teams
even if the United States agreed
to do so.
Rusk called on the conference
to come up with disarmament pro-
posals to dispel suspicion and said
the United States is "ready to
share certain risks in disarma-
ment." He did not spell them out.

ate MajoritydLeader Lynn O.

In Littleton, N. H., Stewart
agreed to hear the appeal and
scheduled oral arguments for Fri-
Whitney N. Seymour, the past
president of the American Bar
Assosiation hired by the Senators,
filed the appeal yesterday morn-
'Grave Concern'
Seymour, representing Senators
Paul Younger (R-Lansing), John
Fitzgerald (R-Grand Ledge) and
Frank Beadle (R-St. Clair), said
the principlereason for the appeal
was "that the decision of the
Michigan Supreme Court presents
a highly important Constitutional
question of grave concern to the
people of Michigan."
Declaring that the Michigan
case is "entirely different" from
a similar Tennessee case, Seymour
noted Michigan voters approved
the Senate districting in a Con-
stitutional amendment in 1952,
while the Teinessee legislature did
not redistrict for 60 years.
The appeal asks a delay de-
claring that the court's Aug. 20
deadline "is of course altogether
too short for orderly operation of
the legislative machinery."
Kelley Rebuts
In a reply, which will be filed
today, Atty Gen. Frank Kelley
opposed the request for a stay.
He argued that the defendants,
in requesting the stay of proceed-
ings, "are asking this court to ap-
prove a prescription for chaos.

of proceedings and subsequently
reject intervening defendants' ap-

harbor on the people" and a usurp-
ation of power, express hopes for

"impeachment'' of two Michigan
Supreme Court justices who voted
for or abstained from the decision.

tools of state AFL-CIO president
August Scholle, Senate Judiciary
Committee chairman Carlton Mor-
ris (R-Kalamazoo) claimed that

ers" and that the electorate be
given a chance to vote on the

Library Displays Influential Weriting, Thought

Frequentors of the General Li-
brary know that on the first floor
of the building, just past the
check-out tables, in tall glass dis-
play cases, there usually is an

exhibition of rare or unusual
Harriet Jameson, head of the
library's Rare Book Rm., and the
unsung heroine whose job in-
cludes planning and executing the
presentations, admits that often
the displays take many hours to
arrange, although the theme for
a given exhibit is usually decided
without too much difficulty.
"Over the past year the exhi-
bitions have been in many areas.
Often a social or political event,
like the anniversary of the unifi-
cation of Italy or the Civil War
centennial will be reason for, and
hence the topic of, a particular;
display," Miss Jameson said.
Special Book Collections
Often, too, ideas for exhibits

The library also held a display
on the works of Shakespeare, tak-
en from the Shakespeare Collec-;
tion, and before that, showed a+
group of books published prior to
1501 (called "incunabula"). In ad-
dition to these the library has
collections of manuscripts, Egyp-
tion papyri and the collected
works of various authors, such as
Swinburn or Carlyle.
Exhibit Molding Books

Miss Jameson, is displaying some
of the works cited by Robert
Downs in his recent book "Molders
of the Modern World."
Downs discusses 111 books writ-
ten not only in English, but in!
German, French, Russian, Italian,

medicine, mathematics, political
science, natural science and so-
The display shows 72 books,
most of which are first editions.

With each book Miss Jameson
has supplied a brief expanation,
commentary, or background note.

Such a note concerning "Mein
Kampf" (a first edition in Ger-
