East Quad Abandons IQC

Thant Expects Cyprus Force


East Quadrangle withdrew from
the Inter-Quadrangle Council last
night in protest over what East
Quad President George Steinitz,
'66, called "the mailbox issue and
other complaints against IQC."
According to IQC's constitu-
tion, East Quad cannotofficially
secede. But if East Quad refuses
S to send its representatives, IQC
will not have a quorum anid, will
be unable to conduct any business
Steinitz, and East, Quad IQO,
representative John Koza, '64, left
the 'IQC meeting last night after
the defeat of several motions
which they introduced concerning
) the question of IQC authority over
the use of quad mailboxes.

East Quad Council voted Tues-
day to withdraw from IQC unless
it took "some positive action" at
last night's meeting. Steinitz noted
that "East Quad feels that IQC's
,mailbox regulations are unfair and
should be changed."
Mailbox Rules
The.IQC mailbox rules and reg-
ulations state that "any item
which IQC distributes of its own
cannot be disallowed by individ-
ual quadrangles. All items must be
brought to the IQC for approval,"
except as defined in certain par-
-These portions include such
regulations as: "A house may dis-
tribute literature arising within
its house in its own mailboxes,
with the approval of the house
government. Literature originating
in one house or quadrangle for
distribution in another quadrangle
must be approved by the IQC.
"This decision is binding on all
houses and quadrangles. Litera-
ture originating in one house or,
quadrangle for distribution in that
unit must be approved by the
quadrangle government. Its deci-
sion is binding on all houses in
that quadrangle."
Chaiges Unfair Censorship
Koza contends that IQC has
used this'censorship right unfair-
ly, and "has in. the 'past stopped
distribution of literature advocat-
ing stands which IQC opposed."
IQC President John Eadie, '65,
who believed East Quad's with-
drawal from IQC to be "most un-
fortunate," noted that IQC's by-
laws, of which the mailbox regu-
lations are a part, were passed by
a 7-1 vote in IQC "just last
He added that "IQC's executive.
committee and other committees
will continue to operate for the
benefit of all the men in the resi-
dence halls, though their meetings
will be carried out unofficially."
Decision Brewing
Stelnitz said that East Quad's
decision to withdraw from IQC
"had been brewing since Novem-
Koza added that "East Quad
attempted to get changes in litera-
ture distribution policy through
IQC channels but was unable to
do' so."

funds" in purchasing refreshments
for IQC members at meetings, and
misrepresentation of the men in
the residence halls by "various

Steinitz made it clear, however,
that East Quad would be willing
to return to IQC meetings either
to "obtain redress for its griev-
ances or to conduct business that

China Plans
GENEVA (JP)-The Indian gov-
ernment denounced Red China
yesterday for trying to develop
its own nuclear bomb and called
on the rest of the world to prevent
Vishnu C. Trivedi,' newly ap-
pointed Indian delegate to the 17-
nation Disarmament Conference,
avoided naming the Peking regime
but his meaning was unmistak-
able. Other delegates seemed star-
tled by his speech, which swept
aside a long - standing taboo
against any discussion on the
China issue on the conference
In his first speech to the con-
ference, Trivedi called on dele-
gates to "negotiate measures cal-
culated to prevent . .. unhealthy
developments which would make
our ultimate task much more dif-
ficult, if not impossible."
Lack of Progress
He deplored the lack of prog-
ress in the two-year-old conference
and added, "While we are discuss-
ing problems of disarmament,
there are some people who are
possessed by the .mad urge to have
their own bomb.
"They would call it the Asian
bomb. It is our duty, and the,
duty of the international commu-
nity, to endeavor to prevent this
proliferation of nuclear weapons.
Otherwise, the world will never
forgive us."
First to Denounce China
It was the first time since the
limited nuclear test ban treaty was
signed in Moscow on Aug. 5, 1963
that a delegate had risen on the
conference floor to denounce Red
China for its refusal to accept the
Trivedi rejected as unrealistic
the Chinese view that general
world disarmament can be carried
out only at a single stroke, and
accused the Chinese Communists,
in effect, of blocking disarma-
ment and arms control measures
with their "solitary defiance."
Trivedi evidently made a clear
distinction between China, which
he described as a non-nuclear
power, and France, which already
possesses a}nuclear weapon.
France also has kept aloof from
the test ban, but Trivedi did not
refer to this.

said he would be willing to fight

his colleagues that if they refuse

Judiciary Committee it would

'Confusion and Chaos'
To bypass the committee, Mc-
Clellan' said, would bring "con-
fusion, instability and chaos."
McClellan, carrying the battle-
flag for opponents of the measure
in this fourth day of the civil
rights debate, had to wait two
hours to speak while other South-
ern Democrats argued with their
Senate leadership.
They denounced a "bipartisan
civil rights news letter" circulated
by the bill's backers as an an-
onymous and clandestine operation
which improperly set up a "Re-
publican command post in the
Democratic policy committee."
Policy Committee Not Involved
Sen. Hubert H. Humphreyi (D-
Minn), assistant Senate Demo-
cratic leader and floor manager
for the civil rights bill, denied
that the Democratic policy com-
mittee was involved. He said the
document is being prepared daily
in his office by his staff and that
of Sen. Thomas H. Kuchel (Calif),
assistant GOP leader, with "funds
we have to operate our offices."
With the Southerners still dis-
puting him, Humphrey denied,
there was any mystery about who
wrote the letter. He said the first
edition had carried his name and
Kuchel's although subsequent edi-
tions did not.

Mathematics Programs
Undergo Reorientation
"Until the death of Stalin, political considerations tended to in-
fluerice Russian scientific research, but the situation is changing,"
Prof. Nicholas D. Kazarinoff of the mathematics department said
"The official position in Russia had been to encourage practical
application at the expense of abstract mathematics," he said.
Speaking of his observation4 during his stay in Russia in 1960-61,
Prof. Kazarinoff noted that there has been a great deal of interaction
between the scientific advances of*
the twentieth century and Com-
munist ideology. I

Other Related Fields
"Russian mathematicians are,
being looked to for solutions to
many problems not directly relat-
ed to their field of specialization,"
he noted.
"At the present time Tere is a
shortage of college students in
Russia because few babies were
born during and right after the
Second World War. A few years
ago there were 18 million college
students, while there are only 8.4
million today," Prof. Kazarinoff
said. "The 18 million figure is not
likely to be reached again until
The fewer mathematics students
may receive more intensive train-
ing. Prof. Kazarinoff said that
fewer doctorates, in mathematics
are given in Russia than in the
United States and that the number
is not likely to go up in the next
few years because of the shortage
of qualified people.
More Math Centers
R e s e a r c h and teaching in
mathematics are done in two
kinds of institutions,he noted.
The institutes accept a limited
number of students with univer-
sity degrees, the equivalent of a
strong master's degree in the Unit-
ed States. The universities also ac-.
cept a limited number of graduate
In the institutes the professors
are strongly research-oriented:
The students learn by studying on
their own and attending seminars,
Prof. Kazarinoff said. The univer-
sity undergraduate mathematics
programs tend to include more
physics and mechanics than those
in the United States.
Required Communist Courses
The influence of the Communist
ideology is reflected in the re,
quired "philosophy" courses in
Communism. To receive their doc-
torate students must pass exam-
inations in philosophy and a for-
eign language, in addition to ex-
aminations in their fields of spe-

that they should be as well-in-.

by the board last night in dis-:

proved last week by Union mem-

wright, '65, called the "ten 'sen-

structure of the board has made
it more of a debating society than'

Weekly News Letters
"In an attempt to make the
board members more aware of the
problems facing the Union, the

ber and eliminate' verbal reports
at the monthly board meetings.
"These moves will cut down the
waste effort in board meetings and,
make possible the discussion of
issues formerly relegated to stand-
ing committees," he commented.
Prof. Richard Balshizer of the
engineering college said that the
role of the board ought to parallel
the role to the finance committee
of the former board structure,
namely taking an active hand in
