Congo Army Leader
Asks UN To Leave
Mobuto Demands United Nations
:Remove Forces of Ghana, Guinea
LEOPOLDVILLE, The Congo (P)-Col. Joseph Mobutu, Congo
Army strongman, said last night he has demanded removal of United
Nations troops of Ghana and Guinea from the Congo.
He accused the troops of the two African countries of meddling
in Cogo internal affairs.
The British-officered Ghana troops had been regarded as among
the best disciplined in the UN fores. The Guinea troops, from a
former French colony now playing along with the Soviet Union, had'
been considered less staple members of the UN setup.
A predecessor of Mobutu in power, Patrice Lumumba, several
times asked for removal of non-African troops, especially the Swedish

New Policy
On Petitions
Student Government Council
last night adopted rules for its
Fall election, scheduled for Nov.
8 and 9.
The Council also named Jean
Hartwig, '61, and Walter Faggatt,
Grad., to the Committee on Refer-
The Council made several
changes in the draft election rules.
These were presented by Richard
G'Sell, '62, chairman of the coun-
cil's elections committee.;
Prospective candidates must;
submit petitions containing sig-
natures of 250 registered students.
This includes incumbents. The
Council turned down the commit-
tee proposal that each candidate's
signatures had to appear on only
his own petition. Duplicates would
have been disqualified, necessitat-
ing new names on the petitions.
Rejects Proposals
The Council rejected a proposal
by William Warnock, '61, BAd.,
that no signatures be required.
Warnock argued they are only a
bother, for most candidates can
collect enough within their resi-
dence units, and need not cir-
culate them around the campus.
Later the Council partially an-
swered this, in the members' view,
by raising the required number
of signatures from 100, the com-
mitte proposal, to 250.
Daily editor Thomas Hayden,
'61, supported petitions as a means
to gain acceptance and publicity
for the Council among the student
body. However, he rejected the
pro-petition argument that peti-
tions help to create a political
base for candidates.
Discourages Candidates
Roger Seasonwein, '61, charged
that petitions tend to discourage
candidates. He added that the
election is a more suitable test
for a candidate than mere collec-
tion of names.
Hayden thought arguments that
petition circulation would not have
any public relations effect on the
campus "implies that anything we
do when we run is futile ... " un-
less there is inappropriate sen-
The Council set a $25 limit on
campaign expenditures, but re-
jected a committee proposal to
repay winning candidates two-
thirds of their expenses.
Hayden Speaks
Hayden asked that all candi-
dates be given the rebate, but was
voted down. Seasonwein then
asked total deletion of the clause
from the rules, as "the body is
against giving out ante."

.CHALLENGE speaker

For Speech
On Freedom,
Harold Taylor, President Emeri-
tus of Sarah Lawrence College,
will speak at 8:00 p.m. today in
Rackham Aud. at the first CHAL-
LENGE session.
His topic, under the CHAL-
LENGE general subject "The
Challenge of American Civil Liber-
ties," is "Freedom in America."
His speech will include discus-
sion of freedom of expression in
the United States, particularly
as it was affected by the .Mc-
Carthy period, the problem of the
American Negro, and in general,
a summing up of the forces at
work in the U.S. which Inhibit the
freedom of individual citizens.
Taylor will also comment on
the rote of students in acting on
political and social issues.
Appointed to the Presidency of
Sarah Lawrence at the age of
30, Taylor served for 19 years
before retiring in 1959 to teach
and write.
An editor and teacher of philos-
ophy, he is the author of more
than 200 articles in books and
journals of philosophy and edu-
cation. His major work to date is
entitled "On Education and Free-
Coupling an interest in experi-
mental education with social acs
tion, Taylor fought for academic
freedom during the McCarthy
period and has been active in
combatting racial and religious
Last year, under a special grant
from the Ford Foundation, he
conferred with leaders in Asia
and Russia o nthe problems of
the Asian countries. Since his re-
turn, Taylor has been lecturing at
colleges and universities and writ-
ing a book on liberalism and mod-
ern education.

Academic freedom as it exists
in the United States and most
Western European countries is
something of basic importance,
affecting the very character of
civilization, but is sometimes used
as a cloak by professors to cover
up laziness-a reluctance to deal
with new ideas, and an excuse
for holding opinions .they have
not worked for and cannot justi-

general of UNESCO, said last
Evans spoke to the graduate
school Convocation on "Some Re-
flections of a Graduate Student,"
and touched on several difficul-,
ties and responsibilities which he
considered important to the field
of graduate work and vital to the
well being of civilization.
"If I were a university president
I would get in hot water very
soon," he said, "because I would
tell some of the professors to get
to work and to test their ideas
against the work of great men in
the field."

"To me, after being abroad for
so many years and visiting politi-
cians in 75 countries, it is fright-
ening to see how narrow a total

of knowledge in this country," he
went on.

of an area in which "a good deal
is going on that can have great
importance, but they are neglect-
ed in research by governmental
and private foundations. "Too
much research is aimed at the
production of hardware," he said.
He also alluded to the import-
ance of knowing at least one for-
eign language, in order to under-
stand our own culture, and throw
light on our language and the way
it fits the world pattern of lan-
guages. "Americans generally
don't know as well as foreigners

Asks Understanding
Evans emphasized the urgency
for understanding how culture is
transmitted and changed - what
kinds of happenings in the cul-
tural setting will destroy culture
or throw it into degeneration.
"This is going on on a tremen-
dous scale now," he said. "Farm-
ing communities, particularly in
backward countries, where the
industrial revolution is making a
fast, hard impact on the exist-
ing culture, are undergoing great
pain and hardship."

tion in tribal cultures, as is hap-

different with respect to the back-
ground of a Hindu or Moslem cul-

Our economists cannot explain

Pressing Question
The motion stated that al-
though the Council's position was
one of neither agreement or dis-
agreement with the views ex-
pressed in the play, it wished to
call the event to the student's at-

ing question.

gists Say Education Improves Marriage

.. " +

City Editor
Good news for University students comes from a new book by
two University sociologists-better-educated persons have happier
marriages, they say.
College graduates rate high in fulfilling marriage goals, which
are listed by a sample of 909 Detroit area women as 1) companion-
ship, 2) the chance to have children, 3)understanding, 4) love and
affection and 5) financial status,
"This comes through consistently no matter how you look at it,"
Prof. Robert 0. Blood, Jr. of the sociology department reported.
At a press conference yesterday he reviewed "Husbands and Wives--
The Dynamics of Married Living," which he co-authored with Donald
M. Wolfe of the Institute for Social Research.
Education does not ruin women for marriage, the sociologists
say. Although college alumnae are probably less apt to keep quiet
when they disagree with their husbands, they are more anxious to
work things through to a settlement.
Sharing makes for good marriages, they add, and it is easier for
college graduates to express affection as well as to communicate
information and opinions
Further, "the wife who finds mhost companionship in marriage
is the one who concentrates on entertaining and organizational
activity. College-educated wives' satisfaction far exceeds that of any
occupational or income category."
