Hold TV Debate
Candidates Discuss Summit Talk,
Civil Rights in Nation-Wide Show
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Vice-President Richard M. Nixon and Sen.
John F. Kennedy took their rival bids for the presidency into millions
of American homes last night in their second TV-radio confrontation
of the campaign."
The hard-hitting debate skipped around over such subjects as
civil rights, Cuba, the Paris summit conference and U-2 spy plane
the state of the national economy, the whole cold war outlook, foreign
aid, taxes, the possibility of a summit conference in 1961.
Kennedy had been asked about his position with respect to
defending the Quemoy and Matsu Islands, off the Red Chinese

its territory to Communists. that would start a chain reaction,"

manuscript with slide projections,
Prof. Reutov discussed his complex
work in understandable but rough

"The conclusions and implica-
tions one can draw from Reutov's
explanations and research are ex-
tremely important to anyone in-
terested in theoritical organic
chemistry," Prof. R. Marin Stiles,
of the chemistry department said.
"Prof. Reutov is the best known
chemist in the world working in
this area and it's quite a catch
to have him speak here."
Discussing the protests at WSU,
Prof. Stiles said, " Some people
there seem to fail to appreciate
that all the information is emanat-
ing from his side to ours. There
is no threat to us that he will
gain information; only the ep-
posite is true."
Approximately 40 members of
the Ann Arbor Direct Action Com-
mittee elected a seven-member
steering committee last night to
lead them in their anti-discrim-
ination activities during the rest
of the school year.
The organization re-elected Jack
Ladinsky, Grad., as coordinator
of the steering committee. Other
members are: Etta Green, '62;
Anna Holden of the Survey Re-
search Center; Robert Ross, '63;
Judy Shepard, .'63;Judy" Yesner,

'The group also made prelim-
inary plans for a "non-violent,

later in the year in Ann Arbor.

be ca-sponsored by AADAC and

Today's game with Duke could
be termed a "nothing" contest on
the Michigan football schedule,
but the Wolverines aren't expect-
ed to treat it that way,
It's a non-conference affair,
both teams have a pair of games
under their respective belts, and
it's far from being a traditional
rivalry. (It's the first meeting of
the two schools). And so, the re-
action of players, coaches and
fans to this meeting could easily
be expected to be "so what?"
But at least on the Michigan
side of the field the attitude will
be far from that.
Today's game will show 70,000
Michigan fans just what kind of
team Coach Bump Elliott and
staff have moulded this year..
* Is this Michigan team a good
one? Or not so good?"
Can it bounce back from last
week's loss to Michigan State? Or
Can it function without the
services (or with only limited
service) of injured regulars? Or
These are the questions. And
60 minutes on the field with the
Blue Devils today will provide the
answers for Michigan football
fans to chew on before the Wol-
verines dive into the heart of
their Big Ten slate next week
Michigan has no soft touch
today. Duke has rolled to two
wins over a pair of Atlantic Coast
The Blue Devils revenged three
straight season-opening losses at
the hands of South Carolina, by
upending the Gamecocks, 31-0
and followed with a 14-7 decision
While today's game is expected
to show the stuff the Wolverines
are made of, some of that stuff
won't be seeing full-time action.
Bennie McRae, injured against

UNIVERSITY PRESS CLUB:
Panel Discusses State's Economics
* * *
By RICHARD OSTLING
The economic problems of
Michigan, including taxation, un-
employment, and automation,
were discussed by a panel at last
night's meeting of the University
Participants were Malcolm L.
Denise, vice-president in charge
of labor relations for the Ford
Motor Co., Prof. William Haber
of the economics department, and
Prof. Paul McCracken of the bus-
iness administration school.
Prof. Haber, stressing that the
national economic picture could
not be equated with the Michigan
situation, listed four reasons why.
the state has 180,000 unemployed
"in spite of a booming economy."
He cited the declining percent-
age of the country's automotive
labor force located in Michigan,
which he felt was due to the na-
tional character of the car mar-
ket, not to a fault of the state.
Another problem mentioned was
the loss of defense production in
recent years, with the new em-
phasis on electronics and missiles
instead of heavy armor.
Also, Prof. Haber blamed the
inability to cope with a bad state
fiscal situation. This has led, he
charged, to false national images
of Michigan with "grass growing
in the streets," "schools all but
closed," and "labor and manage-
ment at each other's throats."
Prof. McCracken stressed theI
dual role of automation, whichi
has allowed us to increase pro-
duction and offer a higher stand-
ard of living, while creating great
problems of displacement.-
He credited automation as be-
ing one of the reasons why our
real income has doubled everya
generation, and our ecenomy has
grown along with rapid popula-
tion growth and a shorter Ior k
Denise concurred on this point,
stating that Ford could not have,
pfospered or grown without vast
technical improvements in this
decade. "Deliberate inefficiency is3
not the road to job security," he
He also stressed the need for a
lower-cost product to compete with
foreign manufacturers with a
much lower overhead than in
Denise was also concerned that.
"improvements in 'output per man-
hour worked have been substan-
tially outstripped by the steady
advance in the cost of an hour's
work." He asked for a slowdown
in wage demands upon manufac-
turers so that workers' jobs will
not be "replaced by jobs abroad.".

At General Assembly
UNITED NATIONS (P)--Premier
Nikita Khrushchev threatened
yesterday to support Soviet inter-
ests outside the United Nations
, "by relying on our own force."
He demanded a summit confer..
ence after the United States elec-
tion as his price, for restraining-
Soviet action on isolated West
Khrushchev also demanded a
special United Nations General
Assembly on disarmament-after
the new United States president
is installed-by April at the latest.
He said Geneva, Moscow or Lenin-
grad would be acceptable.
In Washington, the White House
said that it had no comment on
the Khrushchev demand.
The Soviet leader, answering
questions at a United Nations cor-
respondents association luncheon,
called for equal representation in
the United Nations organization
reflecting what he said was the
division of power in 'the world
today-communist, capitalist and
"This would mean all states
would have an equal opportunity-
in the solution of questions," he
said, "and they would be resolved
in a way not to harm the interests
of any one group of states."
He added: "We ask our share of
what we have a right to have...
this means we will uphold our
interests outside the United Na-
tions by use of force and this can
lead only to new exacerbations of
"If a summit conference is held
after the elections in the United
States, we will keep our word"
he added, indicating he would not
upset Berlin's status in advance of
a top-level meeting.
But if there is no summit meet-
ing, said Khrushchev, the coun-
tries which fought against Hitler
will be asked to attend a confer-
ence on peace treaties with both
East and West Germany "and that
will mean the end of the occupa
tion regime" in Germany.
Khrushchev's demand for equal
representation of blocks in effect
was another attack on United Na-
tions Secretary General Dag Ham-
marskjold's office, which he wants
split up in that way, with veto
powers for all.
Asked if he would accept a two-
thirds majority vote of the As-
sembly backing Hammarskjold,
"Even if there was a 99 per ent
majority we would not accept it."
He accused Britain's Prime Min-
ister Harold Macmillan of at-
tempting to delay disarmament
agreement five, or as much as 10
years. But he said Macmillan as-
sured him there would be a sum-

Can Make Major Advance
By MICHAEL BURNS
"I am not of the opinion that you can talk yourselves into a
depression," the chairman of the President's council of Economic
Advisers said yesterday.
"We have a very strong and vigorous economy," Raymond J.
Saulnier told the 43rd annual meeting of the University Press Club
"On the basis of evidence as 'I read it, our economy is in good
position to make a major advance," he said. "It is my judgment that
the next decisive movement will be an advance. This is not merely
a hope, but an expectation."
Saulnier paid that reports of an imminent depression in the
United States were without basis and that economic facts show the
"contrary. The economist first cit-
ed the gross national product of
$505 billion for the second quar-
ter of 1960 as the highest level
