Soviets Demand
Melekh's Release
Zorin Protests to Harnmarskj old
On Arrest of Russian UN Official.
UNITED NATIONS (M--The Soviet Union demanded yesterday
that UN Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjold obtain freedom for a
Russian official of the United Nations held on United States spy
Soviet Delegate Platon D. Morozov told the General Assembly's
legal committee "the Soviet Union demands the immediate release of
this man."
He said the arrest of the UN official, Igor Yakovlevich Melekh,
was a "dirty political provocation." He declared that Hammarskjold
"should take immediate steps to put an end to this act."
Earlier, Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Valerian A. Zorin told
a reporter his delegation had protested to Hammarskjold's office
last night at Melekh's arrest, with-






Try for








Neutrals Ask
Arms Talks
nations brought mounting pres-
sure on the United States and the
Soviet Union yesterday to agree
at leat on the ground rules that
would permit early resumption of
East-West negotiations.
Chances for such agreement
resed mainly on the outcome of
private talks between the repre-
sentatives of the United States and
the Soviet Union. But Western
diplomats were skeptical of any
change in basic United States and
Soviet positions.
United States Delegate James J.
Wadsworth took the initiative in
seeking a conference with Soviet
Deputy Foreign Minister Valeran
A. Zorin otside of the debate
now taking place in the Assembly's
Political Committee.
Wadsworth Ill
Wadsworth was reported ill and
unable to see Zorin before the
first of next week.
Zorin was asked by a reporter
about the talks and got this re-
ply: "I'm willing to talk with any-
one about anything."
But pressed as to whether the
Soviet bloc would carry out its
threat to boycott the debate unless
the West accepts Soviet Premier
Nikita Khrushchev's proposals for
a treaty on disarmament, Zorin
answered: "We will have to wait
and see."
Urge Compromise
Omar Loutfi, delegate of the
United Arab Republic, urged the
committee to adopt a compromise
resolution that would enable the
Western and Communist powers
to return to the negotiating table.
He suggested a resolution that
would list various aspects of dis-
armament upon which there is
East-West agreement, and also
take note of rival East-West reso-
lutions before the committee. The
entire matter would be tossed back
to the 10-nation East-West com-
mittee which broke up in Geneva
last spring.
this is the line of argument
being pushed in private talks by
India, along with the U.A.R., Bur-
ma, Mexico, Sweden and Venezu-
ela. They hope a resolution with
such provisions might head off a
walkout by the Soviet bloc.
Concede Agreement
But Loutfi conceded that there
must be prior United States-Soviet
agreement on any directives that
might be contained in such a res-
olution in order for it to have any
practical effect.
Still another effort at breaking
the disarmament deadlock was be-
ing made in Canada. It was re-
ported ready to submit a reso-
lution probably on Monday urging
appointment of a neutral chair-
man for the 10-nation committee,
and an advisory group of neutrals
to help the committee coordinate
disarmament efforts.
Several nations have suggested
Ambassador Luis Padilla Nervo of
Mexico as the neutral chairman.

HammarskJold said of this, "I
have no comment." The Russians
seemed to have picked up the spy
case as another stick to beat him
with in their campaign to force
his resignation.
Not Immune
In Washington, the State De-
partment said it told the Soviet
embassy that as a UN employe,
Melekh "does not possess diplo-
matic Immunity and that he
therefore is not immune from ar-
rest on the charges."
Press Officer Lincoln White

plained, "two wrongs do not make

Visit Melekh
Accordingly two Soviet officials,
Yuzi Volisky and Nikolai Reznich-
neko, visited Melekh for 15 min-
utes yesterday at the Federal
House of Detention in New York
Melekh, 47, has been in the UN
secretariat since 1955 and has
been holding down a high-level
$10,000-a-year job as chief of the
Russian section of the language
and meetings service of the of-
fice of conference services.
He and Willie Hirsch, 51, Ger-

rested in their New York apart-
ment Thursday on charges they
conspired to get information on
United States defenses to trans-
mit to the Soviet Union.

Hold Talks
On Human
Special to The Daily
student and faculty members 'of
25 Michigan colleges and universi-
ties gathered at a camp north of
here yesterday for a weekend
workshop on human relations.
Ten University students took
part in the conference, sponsored
by the National Conference of
Christians and Jews.
The conference, which will meet
through Sunday, is going to con-
sider problems in these areas:
understanding and appreciation of
cultural and minority groups ina
the campus community, under-
standing and cooperation among
campus religions, elimination of
discrimination in housing and
public accommodations in the
campus community and eradica-
tion of discrimination in campus
and community organizations.
Areas Contribute
All of these areas contribute to
the conference's general theme,
"The Image of Human Relations
Reflected on Campus."
In the keynote address, the Rev.
F. Lawrence J. Cross, S.J., chair-
man of the University of Detroit'
sociology department, argued that
campus relationships, both indi-
vidual-to-individuals and those of
groups, are just the same as in
any community.'
Father Cross saw the campus as
a classroom for the study of these
relationships and concomitant
problems, and as a place in which
to experiment with methods to
improve these basic human rela-
Stress Importance
Stressing the all - encomwpassing
importance of the individual
rather than the group in human{
relations problems, Father Cross
suggested students may work for
advances in the area both by ex-
ample and by education and sup-
port of others' efforts.
He praised the Northern sup-
port of the Southern sit-in move-
ment, but "we have to take care of
things in our own back yard," he
said, noting efforts within indi-
vidual colleges and universities to
improve human relations.
In this aspect, he said, students
can educate others through such
means as human relations clubs.
However, he said that "we can-
not wait until things are perfect"
on campuses before exerting influ-
ence elsewhere.
"It's a big job to be done, but
we have to assume it can be done
. . . It will not be easy, however."

Near Capacity / Crowd,

Jolted from their Big Ten title aspirations last week by,
burly Minnesota, Bump Elliott's Wolverines will attempt to
rebound today when they meet sophomore studded Wiscon-
sin at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison.
Game time is 2:30 p.m. (EST) and the coverage will be
handled by radio stations WPAG and WHRV beginning at
2:15. There will be no television coverage.
The probable attendance, which has been pegged at 58,-

play at Madison. Today's game

United States Ambassador Phil-
ip Bonsal meanwhile left the
country to cheers from Cubans
hoping to follow him and jeers
from Castro supporters.
But the newspapers kept up the
government line that invasion of
Cuba is imminent.
The reports from Prime Min-
ister Fidel Castro's news agency
prominently displayed in the Ha-
vana newspapers said that Unit-
ed States Marines had mined the
Guantanamo perimeter and as a
result one Cuban has been killed
and three have been injured.

Group Urges
'UN Service
A work session of the Ameri-
cans Committed to World Re-
sponsibility last night attracted
over thirty interested students,
despite a complete absence of ad-
vance publicity.
The organization was formed a
few days ago when two students
who had written letters to The
Daily contacted one another. John
Dwyer, Grad., and Alan Guskin,
Grad., had each volunteered to
serve in a United N'~tions civil
service, in response to pleas by
Senator John Kennedy and Ches-
ter Bowles in their recent appear-
ances at the University.
The ACWR, which Dwyer and
Guskin say has already snowball-
ed into a movement so extensive
that communications are breaking
down, is a nonpartisan group urg-
ing an expanded foreign service
and United Nations civil service.
A public meeting will be held at
the end of nett week.

Tradition also seems to be on
the side of Michigan today. The
Wolverines have never lost a game
at Madison in their eight appear-
Unbeaten Season
The last time Michigan appear-
ed in Madison, in 1947, they whip-
ped the. Badgers 40-6, while on
their way to the Big Ten title
and an unbeaten season.
Today's game, however, will be
played under vastly different cir-
cumstances than the 1947 en-
Both teams go into the game
with 1-2 records in Big Ten play,
and with no visions of winning the
title. Last Saturday while the
Wolverines were suffering their
second conference loss, a bruising
10-0 decision to Minnesota, Wis-
consin was getting a double dose
in the persons of Tom Matte and
Bob Ferguson, as they were being
trimmed 34-7 by Ohio State.
Beset With Problems
Both coaches-Elliott, and Milt
Bruhn of Wisconsin, are beset
with problems in trying to revive
their squads. To win today El-
liott will have to revive the po-
tent Michigan offense which was
so effective earlier in the year
against Oregon, Michigan State,
and Duke, and so anemic against
Northwestern and Minnesota.
During the week Michigan
coaches explained the recent lack
of offense in terms of the other
team. But teams can move against
Wisconsin as Iowa and Ohio State
have proved.
Needs Peak Performances
Bruhn's main problem in trying
to rejuvenate the Badgers will
center around getting peak per-
formances from some of the in-
jured players who were hamper-
ed in the Ohio State contest.
Sophomore quarterback Ron
Miller, the Big Ten's leading pass-
er, was injured in the Iowa game
two weeks ago and it hampered
his performance slightly in the
Ohio State game.
Despite his injury, however,
Miller was still able to complete
13 passes in 27 attempts, for 154
yards, although he was handicap-
ped on the ground, where he car-
ried only three times for ten
A sound Miller could have
made the Ohio State game much
closer. In the second period with

(UN.Y Head
The General Faculty of City
College of New York declared
Thursday that the dispute between
the college newspaper editor and
the president of the college was
outside its jurisdiction, because no
question of academic freedom or
freedom of the press was involved.
The faculty committee turned
down an appeal by Peter Stein-
berg, editor of The Observation
Post, to censure college president
Buell G. Gallagher, for his al-
legations that The Observation
Post and Steinberg in particular
were 'Marxist-oriented' and 'Com-
munist sympathizers.'
Steinberg expressed regret over
the committee's action. "There's
certainly a question of academic
freedom involved when epithets
of any kind are applied to ideas
and views. Both the views and
those who hold them are stigma-
"Because of Gallagher's action
students may be reluctant to sup-
port policies, such as support for
sit-in demonstrations, and protest
against defense drills, that the pa-
per has supported. Many students
have been frightened from joining
the paper."
The CONY Student Council vot-
ed 15-4 Wednesday, with three
abstentions, to condemn Gallagh-
er's "all-inclusive and. sweeping
epithets," and reject the 18 page
documentation Gallagher offered
to back his claims.
Still considering slander action,
Steinberg says he may also ap-
peal to the Board of Higher Edu-
cation, which , has jurisdiction
over the entire municipal college
system, in an effort to have the
college president censured.
"I have the editorial support of
all the municipal newspapers,"
Steinberg said, "and the staff
here is united in itsstand."
