LEADING DEMOCRATS-in their respective visits to the campus yesterday, Governor Williams (left)
scorned Vice-President Nixon's claims to experience, while Byron White discusses the importance of
Independent voters.

it would be decided by the inde-

He explained that although the
Democratic party has a 5-3 edge
in registration, "We Democrats

that he did not know if Kennedy

that he plans at least one. more

In response to a question noting
the apparent inconsistency of the'
liberal Democratic platform and
the choice of Sen. Lyndon John-

does not know if Kennedy and
Johnson will ever join forces and
campaign together. He added that
both are hitting the country hard,
and that he believed there was
"less chance than in the past" that
the South would break up as the

Williams Defends,
Winehell House Hears Governor
Stress Need for Strong America
Gov. G. Mennen Williams, on campus yesterday afternoon for the
reception of Mrs. Peter Lawford, took time out to speak to the
residents of Winchell House, West Quadrangle.
The Governor said he was glad to see so many young people
taking an active interest in politics. "When I went to school," he said,
"even with the Roosevelt campaigns, the students didn't get very

excited about the Campaigning. b
Year Abroad
There is some chance a U ni-
versity junior-year-abroad pro-
gram could begin by the fall of
1961, Associate Dean of the liter-
ary college James Robertson says.
The report of the literary col-
lege faculty committee which

Williams said that he felt the
one thing now in the minds of
the people was who could handle
the Russians to the best advan-
tage of the United States.
Two Accomplishments
"Nixon stresses two accomplish-
ments," he said. "First, that he
has traveled and talked with the
leaders of the world; second, that
he has talked tough to the Rus-
"Now everyone wants to see
America in a position where the
Russians can't push us around,
but I don't think this so-called
'Kitchen Debate' is any example
of talking tough."
He said that Kennedy had also
traveled widely, and has been in
contact with the leaders of major
nations and visited major trouble
spots in the world.
Results Count
"Talking tough is all right," he
went on. "But it's the results that
count. America. ,has to be strong
militarily, educationally, economi-
cally, and spiritually."
Williams said the nation needs
the skills of every one of its'
citizens, and therefore everyone
should receive the fullest educa-
tion possible. "Only then, in the
final analysis, can we prevail on
the Soviets, because we are strong-
In Lansing Williams said that
President Dwight Eisenhower has
made only the ''most of faint-
hearted praise" in endorsing Vice-
President Richard M. Nixon's de-
cision-making experience,

Nixon's Plan
Would Aid Students
By Providing Loans
The University medical school
would certainly be willing to par-
ticipate in a Federal program pro-
viding aid to medical students,
such as the one recently recom-
mended by Vice-President Rich-
ard M. Nixon, William N. Hub-
bard, dean of the medical school
said yesterday.
Saying that "some such plan is
essential," Hubbard pointed out
that while over 95 per cent of the
graduate students in the physical
sciences in the United States re-
ceive some kind of fellowship aid,
very few medical students enjoy
the same kind of financial assist-
Nixon's suggestion for federal
assistance, presented Monday, is
that fellowships be awarded on

question, providing encouragement
for the expansion of facilities. The
rest of the fellowship would take
the form of a loan to the student.
Nixon also proposed that the
federal government pay a larger
share of the resulting increased
overhead of the institutions In-
volved, so as not to burden the
medical schools unduly. He sug-
gested that such a program would
permit an increase in medical
school faculty salaries and en-
courage more persons to become
teachers and research personnel
in such schools.
WSU Council
Votes to Back
Ban Removal
A statement supporting the
Wayne State University's Borarda
of Governors' decision to revoke
the ban against Communist speak-;
ers, was issued last night by WSU's
Student-Faculty Council.
The declaration reaffirmed a
SF0 policy that was passed in
March, 1959. It read, "The univer-
sity is primarily an Institute of
learning . .. In order to promote1
scholarly inquiry and the highesti
in academic standards, it is de-
ssirable that the student hear alli
sides of every issue," it says.

UN PRINCIPALS--British Prime Minister IHarold Macmillan met with Soviet Premier Nikita Khrush-
ch'ev yesterday. The bid by Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru led an unsuccessful neutralist
bid for an Eisenhower-Khrushchev meeting. The two Commonwealth leaders are shown conferring
last week.
Americans MisjudgeNasser

"I believe that most of my
fellow countrymen have far less
information than they should
about United Arab Republic Pre-
sident Gamal Abdel Nasser," Prof.
Leland Stowe of the journalism
department said yesterday.
In a talk entitled "What We
Need to Know About Nasser," Prof.
Stowe expressed conclusions drawn
from three months of research in
the Middle East for "Reader's
Digest" magazine.
He will discuss further aspects
of Nasser's regime, particularly
his relationship with the Soviet
bloc, at 4:15 p.m. today in the
Rackham Amphitheatre in a lec-
ture titled, "Nasser Between East
and West: His Communist Bloc
Deceptions -- His Growth and
Prof. Stowe pointed out four
popular American misconceptions
about Nasser, which he feels
should be corrected. The first is
the idea that Nasser is headstrong
and impetuous when, Prof. Stowe
said, the opposite is true. Nasser
always weighs every aspect and
contingency before acting on a
problem, especially one such as the
nationalization of the Suez Canal.
Patriotic Motives
The second misconception is the
belief Nasser is "just another
power-greedy, military dictator."
Nasser's motives, Prof. Stowe said,
are for the Arab people and are
patriotic and humanitarian.

Prof. Stowe refuted the opinion
that Nasser is always ready to
resort to force to achieve his ends.
"Nasser has a deep aversion to
bloodshed," he said, and quoted
the Arab leader as saying, "After
reading about the French Revolu-
tion I had such agonies before my
eyes . I always remembered
that ., . I have always felt that
bloodshed will lead to bloodshed."
In this afternoon's lecture, Prof.
Stowe will discuss the frequently-
heard charge that Nasser is "pro-
Soviet *. .: hoodwinked by Mos-
cow . .. soft on Conmnunists."
Nations Sensitive
In dealing with Nasser, Prof.
Stowe feels that difficulties arise
.when foreign governments fail to
realize that Nasser and the Arab
nations are "hyper-sensitive to
any slight or condescension." He
explained that, "Nasser has re-

stored to Egyptians their self-
respect, pride and patriotism, but
both he and his people have
psychological wounds which are
still bleeding."
Greatest Interest
Prof. Stowe cautions Americans
and other foreign powers to con-
sider the question, "What if Nas-
ser no longer ruled Egypt?" He
quotes news commentator Frank
Kearns as saying that "The alter-
native to Nasser is too awful to
contemplate. The result would be
either a regime under the fana-
tical Moslem Brotherhood or a
Communist Regime ruling Egypt
and Syria."
Prof. Stowe quoted an American
diplomat as maintaining that
America's greatest interest in the
U.A.R. is "that it be and remain
a truly independent nation at the
most strategic' crossroads in to-
day's revolutionary world."

Star's Wife, No minee's Sister, Speaks at Union

"Where is she? I want to meet
her," one matron said, stepping
briskly up to a young lady with
a Kennedy hat on.
"You mean Jack Kennedy's
sister---," the girl began.
"No. I don't care anything about
her," the matron interrupted,
waving her autograph book in the
air. "I want to see the movie
star, Mrs. Peter Lawford."
Apparently the lady was confus-
ed, but nonetheless she was one
of better than 500 people who

wife of a star, they all met the
same charming lady, who certain-

Prof. Spuhler, who teaches an-
thropology 31 this semester, com-
pared purchasing such notes to
buying a textbook, and pointed out
that "at some good universities,
such as Oxford, the sale of printed
lecture notes is permitted; at
others, it isn't." He said that 'he
would have no objections to such
a procedure.
Discover Nothing
Anthropology department sec-
retaries looked through University
regulations to discover anything
bearing on the matter, but by the
end of the day had found nothing.
Prof. Smith, who teaches Zool-
ogy 1, reported that the students
said they would present him with

Denying any ethical impropriety

secretary to take notes and an-
other to copy diagrams, both of
which would presumably be edited
