each 'Walk-In' Peaceful

The first beach "walk-in" In
the Ann Arbor area, possibly in
Michigan, took place= Sunday.
A beach "walk-in" is compar-
able to the sit-in at lunch counters
and restaurants.
The action occured at the New-
port Beach Club on Portage Lake
near Dexter. About forty members
of the local picketing group plan-
ned and participated in the walk-
No Incident
The effort was without incident,
and the nine Negroes in the walk-
in group were admitted to the
beach. Some 1500-2000 people at-
nd on an average July Sunday.
The group had previously ne-
gotiated with the owners of the
beach, Mr. and Mrs. Michael
Chrisovan, on several occasions
and had been in contact with
them by phone on Saturday. Sev-I
eral "test-cases" had been run to
determine whether it was the
policy of the owners to admit Ne-
Legality Questioned
The group felt the policy of the
beach was contrary to the Diggs
Act, a Michigan law forbidding
discrimination in various publicly-
used establishments. Among those
establishments named in the Act
are beaches operated on a non-
member basis.
At a meeting on Friday, the,
group decided that a course of
non-violent direct action was ap-
propriate. Rehearsal of procedure
was carried out by members and
methods of minimizing possible
incidents were discussed. A lawyer

U.S. Dismisses Proposal
For Pact with Red China
WASHINGTON OP) - A Red Chinese proposal for a peace, non-
aggression and non-nuclear pact for the Asian-Pacific area got a fast
brushoff from the United States yesterday as a "meaningless propa-
ganda gesture."
Premier Chou En-Lai made the proposal at a reception at the
Swiss embassy in Peiping.
The Red China radio quoted Chou as saying:
"We advocate the the countries in Asia and around the Pacific
including the United States of America, conclude a peace pact of mu-
tual non-aggression and turn the whole of this area into a nuclear
weapon free area.
"This Is of course a direction along which efforts are to be made
for a long time to come, but we will exert unremitting efforts for this."

rotests, at a nearby beach Sun-
nd white students, entered the
f little difficulty, and no major
column of some twenty Negroes
and whites proceeded through to
the beach after paying the rer
quired admittance price.
Few Surprised
Few people gave evidence of
surprise, though several young
couples and a family requested
their money be refunded, the own-
ers reported. The picnic area
ajoining the beach and the beach
were about eighty per cent of ca-
pacity when the walk-in took
place. The group remained for
three hours.
Asked about his attitude to-
ward the appearance of Negroes,
a regular patron from Livonia
commented that he hadn't made
up his mind whether or not to
bring his family back. Several'
teenaged boys from Detroit felt
they would not hesitate to return
in the future.
Mr. Crisovan stated, "I want
complete understanding that my
rules will be for both whites and
Negroes." Asked to define what
his rules were, he said that they
were rules of decent behavior and
drunkeness. Spokesman for the
picketing group, Jack Ladinsky,
Grad, said, "We're very pleased'
with the results of the action and
hope that it's a continuing policy."

Congo Chief
Asks Troops
For Katanga
By The Associated Press
Premier Patrice Lumumba of
the Congo said he asked the
United Nations yesterday to send
troops at once to the secessionist
Katanga Province.
Lumumba said the UN force in
the Congo now totaled 11,555 and
"I asked that troops be sent im-
mediately-to Katanga."
Moise Tshombe, premier of Ka-
tange, has declared secession of
that province, the Congo's richest,
and has threatened to fight if the
United Nations tries to send
troops there.
Rejects Ties
Tshombe also declared yester-
day his government has rejected
any kind of political association
with foreign countries. No other
country has recognized the seces-
sion of his rich province from the
new Congo Republic.
In rejecting foreign ties, Tshom--
be said: "I am thinking especially
in this regard about influences
working for a union with Rho-
desia. We resist this with all our
The premier reiterated that Ka-
tanga is in favor of a loose con-
federation of the Congo provinces
into a United States of Congo,
and that Katanga is prepared to
help finance such a confederation.
He asked the United Nations to
help Katanga make necessary
contacts with the rest of the Con-
go for going ahead with the idea.
Strife Continues
Mounting reports of bloody tri-
bal clashes in the interior yester-
day dimmed prospects for an early
end to the Congo's strife.
U.S. Ambassador Clare S. Tim-
berlake said yesterday the United
States is studying ways to provide
economic help to the Congo.

Kennedy Hits"
Farm Plan
Sen. John F. Kennedy, the Demo-
cratic presidential nominee, yes-
terday accused Vice - President
Richard M. Nixon of "betrayal of
the Benson farm program which
he helped to wrote."
Kennedy aimed the personal at-
tack at Nixon in a statement re-
leased from his vacation head-
quarters here. In it he endorsed
a blast at the Republican presi-
dential nominee released here
earlier in the day in the names
of a group of midwestern Demo-
cratic governors and senators.
Actually, the midwesterners'
statement had been written by
Kennedy campaign workers, then
submitted for approval to the five
governors and three senators who
signed it. The document likened
Nixon to a captain deserting a
sinking ship in turning his back
on Benson.
Then, in his own statement,
Kennedy said:
"The Democratic leaders in the
midwest have accurately pin-
pointed Mr. Nixon's lack of basic
beliefs indicated by his betrayal
of the Benson farm program
which he helped to write."
Kennedy said the policies of
Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft
Benson have been "disastrous" to
agriculture, but that Nixon has
been supporting them up to now.

White said that the latest report
"appears to be the same propa-

sions by Chinese Communist lead-
ers during a period marked by ex-
treme Chinese, Communist belli-
gerence including aggression in
Taiwan Strait, savage repression of
Tibet and poisonous anti-Ameri-
can propaganda."
White pointed out that the
United States and Communist
China have a means of talking to
each other through the meetings
of ambassadors of the two coun-
tries, held in Warsaw.
"As of today there is no basis
whatsoever in these ambassadorial
talks with Communist China for
the hope that Peiping will aban-
don its belligerence."

Russians 'Cynical,'

Russian proposal on disarmament

Reject Proposal
The Russians, in making the
proposal yesterday, rejected Presi-
dent Eisenhower's call for an early
meeting of the UN Disarmament
Commission, also made up of all
82 nations.
Lodge, the Republican vice,
presidential nominee, discussed
the Soviet proposal at a news
conference after he and Vice-
President Richard M Nixon, who
heads the GOP political ticket,

with the forthcoming political

States disarmament proposal.
Asked to comment on the Soviet
counter-proposal, Lodge called it

'Don Giovanni Challenges Stage Designers
"Don Giovanni," the final production of the Summer Playbill
series, opens at 8 p.m. tomorrow at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
The opera has long presented serious problems to stage designers,
the main difficulty being that there are ten different scenes in the
opera, each requiring a different set.
In addition, there is another problem paused by Mozart's failure
to provide "cover" music for the intervals between scenes so that sets.
could be changed.
Music from other Mozart works could be placed between the
scenes, and has been, in the past, but it does not make a satisfactory
solution from the standpoint of serious opera lovers who object to this'
sort of adulteration of the original opera.'
A longer interval betreen scenes would allow changes, but the
music in "Giovanni" has great fluidity and movement. It is the duty
of the sets to enhance this quality instead of detracting from it by
long interruptions.
Solutions to this problem have been varied. In the fall of 1957, . .
