Rep. Chester Bowles (D-Conn.) called upon the United States
yesterday to revamp its foreign policy and give more aid through
the United Nations.
Bowles, speaking before a crowded group of faculty and students
in the Michigan Union ballroom, urged Americans to interweave their
foreign policies and economic policies, "as they have never been
interwoven before.
"We define power in a military and industrial sense. We have
to broaden and widen our view of power," he said. "The power of ideas
- and of people must also be recog-
nized to improve our foreign rela-

SGC Plans

Student Government Council
will continue consideration of the
motion on fraternity and sorority
constitutions at its meeting to-
It will also appoint the Com-
mittee on Membership Selection
in Student Organizations.
The motion on constitution, if
passed, would require all fraterni-
ties and sororities to file a copy
of their constitution, or a con-
stitutional form, with the Vice-
Presidnt for Student Affairs.
A representative of the Office
of Student Affairs and the SGC
president, acting for the Council,
would have access to this file; the
membership selection committee,
could, as a committee, examine
portions of the constitutions deal-
ing with membership practices.
Fraternities a n d sororities
would not have to submit their
entire constitutions to the Vice-
President's office, if the motion is
passed, but only those parts deal-
ing with such areas as member-
ship, officers and committees,
meetings and procedures for con-
stitutional amendment and ratifi-
In today's discussion, a request
may be made that the motion be
deferred until the Council can
consult with national fraternities,
which have regulations concerning
distribution of their constitution.

The membership selection com-
mittee was set up by the Council
last spring, when it passed the
University regulation that "all
recognized student organizations
shall select membership and af-
ford opportunities to members of
the basis of personal merit and not
race, color, religion, creed, na-
tional origin or ancestry."
To Arbitrate
Rail Dispute
WASHINGTON (P) - The na-
tion's railroads and the men who
operate the trains agreed yester-
day to submit their hot dispute
over work rules and practices to a
presidential commission.
Secretary of Labor James P.
Mitchell, who negotiated the
agreement, wrung concessions
from both sides.
The agreement ended, at least
through next year, any threat of
a strike over what railroad man-
agers call featherbedding - de-
fined as work rules and practices
which they contend require the+
carriers to employ unneeded men.+
Therailroads have been urg-
ing a presidential commission to1
look into the matter, and insisting1
its recommendations be binding
on both sides.1

"Maybe the publicity has done

commented. "I believe perhaps this

Asks Commissions
The picketing organization ask-
ed the commission to serve as
mediator between it and. the Cou-

urday demonstrations against the
shop last May.
The commission had taken no
action against the shop since
summarizing its position last
spring when it judged the Cousins
Shop "guilty of discriminatory
treatment" of a Negro customer

The commission voted to send
AADAC a letter containing the
results of Whited's talk with Mrs.
Cousins and reporting the situa-

will use the letter to decide wheth-

last night.

Kaminsky Tells of Conviction
Former Ann Arbor High School
teacher Mark .I. Kaminsky said
yesterday that he was convicted
of espionage in the Soviet Union
after he admitted travelling r !{
through Russia to gather material
for a book on Soviet war prepara-
"They told me it would be fool-
ish not to plead guilty," Kamin-
sky told the Associated Press yes-
terday in Vienna. "They gave me
a lawyer. He was not of much as-
sistance, but he cheered me up.
He advised me to confess to the
charge wholeheartedly and tell the
court I felt very remorseful, He
stressed the part about 'remorse-
ful' time and again."
Philip Power, Grad., who talked
at length with Kaminsky in Kiev
last August, said that Kaminsky
and his companion were under
heavy surveillance at that time,
and apparently did not know why.-r
No Idea of Book
He said that someone in the
party told him, "We're hot, but
that he had no idea that Kamin-
sky had been gathering Material
for a book.
Power spent an evening with
Kaminsky and his traveling com-
panion, Harvey C. Bennett, of

group was followed. "After I left u awai

a member of the Senate subcom-
mittee on antitrust and monopoly

ity of the Food and Drug Admin-
istration to deal with unethical
drug manufacturers,
Speaking before an audience of
75 pharmacists in Rackham Am-
phitheatre, Hart discussed the
subcommittee's findings on ethi-
cal drug manufacture,
"First, there is an almost com-
plete lack of consumer sovereign-
ty; that is, the physician, and not
the patient, decides when to buy
drugs. He is literally the purchas-
ing agent of the patient."
"Unlike the situation in many
industries, it is foolish to think of
consumer education as a cure to
any wrongs in the drug industry.
Argument Unlikely
"While most purchases are made
in an atmosphere of leisure, drugs
are purchased during times of fear
and pain, when people are least
likely to argue over prices of
things they buy."
Hart said that while the sub-
committee realized that drug com-
pany officials have a responsibility
to their stockholders to obtain as
large a return on their invest-
ment as possible, it tried to em-
phasize that the drug company
officials also have a responsibility
for the public health.
Pointing out that in rendering
their services to the nation, the
leading drug manufacturers
achieve two times the average
rate of profit, he said that while
the government can purchase cer-
tain drugs at 51 cents for a cer-
tain quantity, the same quantity
of the same drugs costs the con-
sumer nearly 100 times that
amount, and many companies put
identical prices on comparable
Cites Inadequacies
Hart cited inadequacies in the
present ability of the FDA to in-
spect drugs for their safety, and
predicted that "A very large effort
will be made at the next session
of Congress to give FDA authority
to stamp out unethical manufac-
turers and dangerous drugs."

Peace "is going to come hard,"
the representative warned.

toward an end, and should not

the dictatorial type of government
which exists.
