On Membership
Council Hears President's Report
On Motion To View Constitutions
Student Government Council early this morning appointed the
Committee on Membership Selection in Student Organizations.
The members are James Seder, '61; Wallace Sagendorph, '61;
Jesse McCorry, '62; Robert Rose, '62; Assistant Dean of Women
Elizabeth Davenport; Assistant Dean of Men John Bingley, and
Prof. Samuel Eldersveld of the political science department.
The membership selection committee was set up by the Council
last spring to administer the University regulation, passed at the
same time, which says "All recognized student organizations shall
select membership and afford opportunities to members on the basis

On Debate
Soviet Union threatened yesterday
to walk out on United Nations dis-
armament debate.
The United States replied that
it refused to be intimidated by
such threats, and challenged the
Soviets to join in a workable dis-
armament program.
Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister
Valerian A. Zorin told the UN's
main political committee that if
the United States and its allies
insist upon pressing their disarm-
ament proposals, the committee's
work will become impossible.

Past Meetings
Associate Director of McGregor
Center John Fraser said that the
"Global Book Forum" had meet-
ings at Wayne last April and in
November 1959. He added that the
group had already paid the $25
fee for use of the building.

I am crossing the Iron Curtain,"
Dan Berkowitz, a sophomore at
WSU's Monteith College said, ex-
plaining that most of the books in
the store were from Red China or
from and about the Soviet Union.
Similar View
Another Wayne sophomore,
Lawrence; Green, had a similar
view of the store. "It has a lot of
highly controversial material on
the shelves. I saw several pamph-

The Council also heard a prog-
ressreport by SGC President John
Feldkamp, '61, on the motion
which would require fraternities
and sororities to file their consti-
tutions or constitutional forms
with the Vice-President for Stu-
dent Affairs.
To Offer Motion
At the same time, Interfrater-
nity Council President Jon Trost,
'61, indicated he will move next
week to postpone consideration of
the constitutions motion for sev-
eral weeks. Trost asked time to do
"considerable research."

Feldkamp said he spent a great
deal of time clearing up mis-
apprenhensions about the motion,
which if passed, would allow access
to the constitutions only to a
representative of the Office of
Student Affairs, the SGC Presi-
dent acting for the Council and
the membership selection commit-
tee, which could, as a committee
s c r u t i n i z e any constitutional
clauses relavant to its work.
Committee Endorses
The faculty student relations
committee has endorsed the mo-
tion, Feldkamp said. He added
that a possible improvement of'
the motion might be a clear state-
ment of the circumstances under
which the SGC president and the{
membership selection committee'
could examine the constitutions.
The duties of the membership
selection committee include inves-
tigation of charges of violations of
the regulation and initiation of its
own inquiries. In case of violations
the committee will make recom-
mendations on corrective and/or
disciplinary action to the Council,,
which has final authority.
By the end of this semester, the
committee must report its pro-j
cedures to the Council for ap-
proval and make them public.

'Time Waste'
"The Soviet Union will not par-
ticipate in such a waste of time,"
he added. "Let no one have any
doubt on this account, let all il-
lusions be dispelled if somebody
still holds them."

Police made 52 arrests, includ-

EDUCATIONAL EXCHANGE-Lev Kostikov and Petr Arkhipov, two of the 17 Soviet students in the
United States, discussed the Russian educational system. Children attend primary and secondary
schools from the ages of seven to 17, and then must take competitive examinations to ,enter the 'in-
stitutes' or 'universities.' Those who immediately go to work in industry after secondary school
often attend night classes, they said.
Russian Students Discuss U.S.

"I was watching a dramatic
film on television here," the stu-
dent from Moscow said, "when
it was suddenly interrupted by a
commercial chanting 'never before,
never again, DDD."
To Lev Kostikov, such publicity
as Downtown Detroit Days is not
common. In his native Moscow,
the small shops have only their
names over the doors, and not the
gaudy lights and hopeful promises
found in American stores.
Kostikov and Petr Arkhipov are
two of the 17 Soviet students now
studying in American universities.

In the week they have been
here, they noticed several dif-
ferences in the university systems.
"In Russia we must go to lectures,"
Kostikov said. "And we have
classes six days a week, six to
ten hours a day."
Higher education in the Soviet
Union is divided into two types
of schools, Arkhipov continued.
There are the "institutes" for
engineering and other practical
technical fields. The "universities"
however, concentrate on the
teaching fields and on scientific
Receive Stipends
All university and institute stu-
dents receive government stipends,
they added. They must take exams
at the end of each semester, and
if they fail them they must leave
the school. It is possible to return
in about a year, if they bring
recommendations from their place
of work.
About 20 or 30 per cent of the
secondary school students go on
to higher education, they said. If
they do not, they can take the
polytechnical courses that are
offered in the high schools. Boys
can get training in agriculture and

other technical work. Even girls
take advantage of the practical
courses offer9d.
As there is no private industry,
apprenticeship as practiced in the
United States does not exist. How-
ever, skilled workers in the fac-
tories are often put in charge of
teaching their trade to the young
laborers. Industry will also send
good workers to institutes for pro-
fessional training, granting them
greater scholarships than the,
regular students.
'Too Many'
Asked if there were rany wo-
men at Russian Universities, Ark-
hipov replied, "Too many. About
40% of the students in the medi-
cine, languages, and education are
women. In fact most of the doctors
are women."
Women also continue to work
after they are married. "After all,
why not?" said Arkhipov. "When
they have children they are given
three or four months off. Then
the children start to grow up and
the women return to work."
Kostikov's wife, for example, is
a judge, an elective office, for
which law education is required.

Benson Calls Democrat's
Farm Program 'Fa'ntastic'
EAST LANSING (P)--Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson
last night called the farm program of Sen. John F. Kennedy a fan-
tastic nightmare.
"It is a nightmare-the worst farm program, bar none, that I
have ever seen advocated by any responsible figure in this country,"
he said.
"It is a one-way ticket to disaster for United States agriculture.
It is shrinkmanship not growthmanship." Benson made this attack
on the Kennedy program-which
envisions tighter, farm controls E D R O IT
than at present-in a speech pre- HENDERSON DIS

Kennedy's Republican opponent
for the Presidency, Vice-President
Richard M. Nixon, has sought to
divorce himself from Benson and

was given out by his department,:


n Proposed as Federal Branch

Both Kostikov and Arkhipov
thought the University was "a'
good place for study, with labora-
tory facilities, and a sports place."
Evidently athletics plays a great
part in their academic life. They
have not yet seen an American
football game, but have heard
that it is not "real football" be-
cause the players are able to use
their hands.
Russian football, as all European
football, is equivalent to American
soccer. They were also Impressed
by the number of bicycles on
campus. "It is good exercise for the,
morning, yes?" asked Kostikov.
The American students they
have met have beef very friendly,
they said. "All people speak to us
as good friends and ask many
questions, and I have a great desire
to answer their questions," Kosti
kov said. "But I can't speak well
enough to answer them."
The great difference they found
in the everyday living was the
food. When they arrived in New
York two weeks ago, their group
was invited to dine aboard the

cause the talk was "nonpolitical
and the Secretary couldn't be too
specific in it." Benson, he added, .

One of the University's foremost experts on higher education
discussed the unique theory that state colleges and universities should
be a fourth branch of the government.
"The theory that higher education should be the fourth arm
of the state would raise universities and colleges to the same level
as the executive, legislative, and judicial branches," Prof. Algo
Henderson of the education school said.
Advocates of this theory often point to the University as a
near example of this, the director of the Center for the Study of
Higher Education claimed. "The Regents have a tremendous scope
of power in forming programs and distributing funds.

"If the University is not satisfied with the appropriation from
the state, it is not completely hindered. It can raise money on
its own by raising tuition or solicting more outside grants and
