Firms Tell NSA Representatives
Movement Should Shift Emphasis
By PHILIP SHERMAN
Four variety store chains have, in effect, told United
States students in the sit-in movement that they have made
their point and should shift their activities to other areas.
In a statement issued yesterday in New York, F. W. Wool-
worth Co., W. T. Grant Co., S. H. Kress and Co. and McCrory-
McLellan Stores pointed to progress they have made in inte-
grating their branches and argued that continued variety
store sit-ins will be unprofitable because of this progress.
The statement was issued against a background of wan-
ing interest in the variety store sit-in movement. The four
... labor and liberties
By RUTH EVENHUIS
"Trade unions can exist only in
a society of civil liberties, and can
only be healthy when guaranteeing
these same liberties to their mem-
bers," Arthur Goldberg told a
Challenge audience yesterday.
He discussed the relationship of
labor to civil liberties in the coun-
try as a whole, in labor-manage-
ment relations, and within the
labor union itself.
The life and vitality of the
trade union movement are based!
on constitutional guarantees, he
said, since liberty may take eco-
nomic as well as political forms.
Goldberg doesn't consider gov-
ernment control in the form of
the Sherman Anti-Trust Act as
a denial of civil liberties but a
Definig civil liberties as the in-
dividual's relative freedom to as-
sert his rights as an individual
on the job, he stressed the neces-
sity of collective action to insure
Must Have Rights
Within the union, individuals
must have "full rights of citizen-E
ship" including the right to criti-
cize, the right to vote for officers,
and subjection to "due process of
"The right of a member to
civil liberties doesn't extend to
undermining the union institu-
tion," he explained, defending the
union's right to expel members
seeking secession from the union.
"Civil liberties within the unions
must be won by active non-
acquiescence to the abnegation of:
these rights. The unions and the I
public must be increasingly aware
that the protection of the rights
of labor unions will result in the
union's protection of the rights
of the individual," he said.
O new Tests
companies suggest that other food
and merchandise stores, including
department and drug stores are not
integrated. "And many churches
and civic organizations are not
fully integrated, not to mention
schools and public institutions."
Issued at Meeting
The statement was issued at a
meeting between officials of the
four companies and five represen-
tatives of the United States Na-
tional Students Association, in-
cluding S t u d e n t Government
Council President John Feldkamp,
'61, who is chairman of NSA'st
National Executive Committee.
Two of the NSA representatives,
will convey the companies' state-
ment to the Student Non-Violent
Coordinating Committee (SNCC)
which is nieeting today in Atlanta,.
NSA has not endorsed the com-
panies' position, Feldkamp said.
It is only going to explain the
companies' stand on the situation
and the reasons why they feel

ting of their stores are not justi-
No Advice Given
NSA, Feldkamp said, is also
looking for a time when they too
might end sit-in and picket move-
ments as applied to variety stores,"
but it is not giving advice to

However, the SNCC conference
was called because the sit-in
movement is bogging down, Feld-
kamp said. The reason may be
"that the situation they are pro-
testing is pretty much remedied."
"Students are going to have to
be aware that they could go be-
yond the point of no return-ifl
they continue to work on varietyj
stores, it is questionable that they1
will receive continued support.
"And without widespread sup-]
port the sit-ins lack effectiveness."
"It now looks as if support isx
falling,' Feldkamp continued. "Iff
they persist in wanting to work
in an area in which they cannotl
get support, they are unwise.

PARIS W -Premier Michel
Debre yesterday introduced in a
lukewarm Parliament a $1.2 bil-
lion plan to arm France with its
own nuclear striking force.
The proposal has already drawn
hot criticism from all sides.
Debre argued that the plan for
a national atomic striking force
did not mean France was throw
tho-ing over its alliances to go it
alone-as some critics charge-
and withdrawing into neutralism.
"The first point of French for-
eign policy is the maintenance
and development of the Western
alliance, whose instrument is the
Atlantic Pact," Debre declared.
"It will have solidity and durabil-
ity only if it is the expression of
solidarity of the free world in
That was a reference to Algeria,
where he said there was no West-
ern solidarity. But he insisted that
in fighting the Algerian National-
ists, France was defending the
In defending the costly atomic
force proposal, Debre sai' the
present distribution of strategic
responsibilities among the Allies
was unequal with the United
States "in fact keeping the mon-
opoly of using atomic weapons,"
As for French reluctance to
integrate its forces in the Western
alliance, Debre said that in fact
the government was ready to ac-
cept integration but ."no one is
ready to integrate his deterrent
Critics also have charged that
the deterrent force is beyond
France's financial means and'
would cause reduction in commit-
ments to the Western alliance.
But Debre insisted the plans was
"studied with prudence."

going further than the Eisenhow-

fense of Quemoy and Matsu.
The Vice-President said Kenne-
dy's position only encourages the
Chinese Communists to press
America to the point "where war
is inevitable." Nothing, he said,
could be a greater blow to the
free nations of Asia than for the
country to go along with Kenne-;

Sen. John F. Kennedy, fresh from his nationally televised
debate with Vice-President Richard M. Nixon, called upon the
American people "to recognize the responsibilities and oppor-
tunities ... for this country to move ahead," on his arrival
at Willow Run Airport early this morning.

S... meet at airport
a Case atWU
l By MICHAEL OLINICK
After a fruitless attempt to
bring the question of re-imposing
the ban against Communist speak-
ers at Wayne State University
before the schools Board of Gov-
ernors on Wednesday, petition
leaders promised yesterday that
they would present their case at
the next board meeting, Nov. 16.
"They'll have to fill this place
with chairs when we come again
because we are going to stack the
y'place," Ann Byerle'n, one of the
protest movement leaders, said
yesterday. Her group had been un-
able to gain a place on the
Board's Wednesday agenda.
""This meeting does not consid-
er statements from anyone who
chooses to drop in," Leonard
Woodcock, a member of the board,
told the group. "If you wartt to
be considered at our meetings, you
must have a request in 10 days
before the meeting so the board
will have time to study the issue.
Miss Byerlein said that in a
little more than two weeks the
number of signatures obtained on
the petitions is "well over 25,000,"
the- original goal.
"We have seen students made
pawns of the Communists since-.
this country recognized the Soviet
Union," Miss Byerlein said. "This
question at Wayne has to be
brought out into the open now
because the danger is now."

PITTSBURGH -P)-Bill Mazeroski's leadoff home run in the ninth
inning yesterday brought the fighting Pittsburgh Pirates a 10-9 vic-
tory over the New York Yankees and their first World Series cham-
pionship in 35 years.
The stalwart second baseman's blast over the left field wall came
on the second pitch thrown by Ralph Terry, the Yankees' fifth pitch-
er, and touched off a mad, Joyous celebration in Forbes Field.
Use Yankees Weapon
Thus the Pirates beat the Yankees with the American League
champions own prized weapon-the home run. The Pirates, who
had hit only one four-bagger in the previous six games, smashed
three yestreday. The Yanks clubbed two homers, by Moose Skowron
and Yogi Berra, for a total of ten.
But the huge hitting advantage of the Yankees went for nothing
in the end against the scrapping Pirates.
The Pirates assumed a quick 4-0 advantage in two innings on
Rocky Nelson's two-run homer in the first and Bill Virdon's two-run
single in the second.
Skowron's Homer First
Skowron's homer in the fifth gave the Yankees their first run
off starter Vernon Law, the two-game winner with the help of Elroy
Face. The Yanks then clubbed Law and Face for four runs, climaxed
by Yogi Berra's three-run homer, in the sixth and a 5-4 New York
The Yanks added two more runs off Face in the eighth on three
