Mathematical research - a
grand term for an unknown
quantity-faces in every direc-
tion, and presents many a prob-
lem to the uninitiated.
Prof. George E. Hay, chair-
man of the mathematics de-
partment, terms present-day
math a "great jungle," and

Prof. Hay explains that
mathematics is "a type of skill.
Tts study must begin in kinder-

based on something which is

on. In the many areas of study
divisions are vague and disci-

sumably down to that last
something on which it all is
based-if, indeed, that some-
thing exists.
Many Branches
The term math "analysis"
covers a large area of math
research at the University, cal-

should be said, is not simply

Railroad Strike
Threat Looms
WASHINGTON (I)-There is a
strong chance of a new nation-
wide rail strike threat next week,
informed sources said yesterday.
The unions are reported ready
to consider a strike against com-
panies who refuse to bargain sep-
arately. National industry nego-
tiators reportedly would meet a
strike against individual roads by
posting work rules changes on
every major railroad.
That would cause a nationwide
strike threat similar to one last
August, which Congress halted at
the last minute with emergency

if he got on the Ruby panel he
would vote the death penalty.
In reply, trial judge Joe B.
Brown said:
"I heard something about that,
but I didn't know when, where or
under what circumstances it oc-
curred. It was hearsay to me. All
sorts of rumors go around. Belli
has a right to his opinion."
Unfair Trial
"Unquestionably they had their
minds made up," Belli said of the
jurors. He conducted a long, futile
fight to have the trial transferred'
outside of Dallas, claiming that
Ruby could not get a fair hearing
Belli was beside himself with
rage in the courtroom in the in-
stant after the verdict was re-
turned. He sprang to his feet. His
face reddened. Judge Brown tried
vainly to quiet him. But he shout-
d "This is a victory for bigotry.
We'll appeal this to a court where
we can get due justice and law."
Promises Appeal
Then as Ruby, still seemingly
uncomprehending, was led past
him in the custody of a phalanx
of burly sheriff's deputies, the de-
fense chief cried, "Don't worry
Jack! We'll appeal this and take
it out of Texas."
Dist. Atty. Henry M. Wade, 50,
a blunt-faced, gray-haired prose-
cutor who '24 times before has sent
a defendant to the chair, said he
anticipated it would be at least
two years before Ruby can be exe-
cuted, assuming the verdict stands.
He said the appeal process would
probably take at least that long.
Meanwhile, Ruby was returned!
to the Dallas county jail where he
has been held without bond since
the day he killed Oswald. Sheriff
Bill Decker said he will remain
there until his last appeal is ex-

To Confer in Capital
WASHINGTON (P') - President
Lyndon B. Johnson plans to give
a new push to the Alliance for
Progress in a major speech tomor-
row to the Organization of Amer-
ican States.
On the same day, he is to be-
gin a sweeping review of United
States-Latin American relations
and problems in general, with
every United States ambasador
and foreign aid chief from this
hemisphere in Washington by his
summons to give a firsthand re-
Out of these meetings might
emerge not only a tougher policy
toward the Fidel Sastro govern-
ment in Cuba, but a tightening
up of any slack the President
might find about Washington's

pected to be a strong reaffirma-
tion of his pledge to continue.

The committee is a new orga-
nization created to give the Al-
liance more of a hemisphere-wide
The unprecedented, three-day
meetings between Johnson and
United States hemisphere offi-
cials are interpreted as an effort
by Johnson to bring United States
polices up to date and to seek to
avoid any future episodes such as
the controversy which arose out Qf
a flag-flying incident in Panama..
Why Reappraise?
Informed analysts said there
were various reasons why Johnson
may have decided that a reap-
praisal of United States' policies
toward Latin America is timely:
-Creation of the European
Common Market, and French
President Charles de Gaulle's poli-
tical and economic policies have
brought a realignment of aid and
trade problems for Western Hem-
isphere republics.
-Political and economic prob-
lems seem to be getting more seri-
ous, particularly in countries such
as Brazil, Bolivia, Haiti .and the
Dominican Republic.
-The Republican party has in-
dicated it plans to make foreign
policy a major -issue in this presl-
dential election year.
Just how or where the Un.ited
States might tighten the screws
on Castro has not been indicated
but Washington is clinging to its
theory that economic sanctions,
and hemispheric repudiation of

Castro, still are feasible and po-
tentially effective.

Finds City
Air Clean
Ann Arbor has no great air
pollution problem, Prof. Paul M.
Giever of the public health school
said yesterday.
Commenting on a state health
official's .report on Michigan's air
pollution problem, Prof. Giever
said Ann Arbor has little auto
exhaust or industrial pollution,
and is thus cleaner than larger
He explained that Ann Arbor's
pr blems come mainly from poor
combustion in heating plants. The
University may be a contributor to
pollution through its power and
heating plants, he said.
Positive Prevention
John Soet, director of the divi-
sion of occupational health for the
health department, said in his re-
port, "Unless a postive program
of preventionis undertaken soon,
our atmosphere will be clogged
with irritating, harmful pollutants.
Air pollution, he said, "affects all
communities, both large and small,
even to the smallest village."
Soet proposed a state-wide pro-
gram for abatement of air pollu-
tion, with educational programs,
technical assistance to communi-
ties with problems, evaluation of
the pollution and a setting of
standards for pollution control.
Prof. Giever said Ann Arbor is:
"not faced with any tremendous
increase" in air pollution at the
present. However, he said, 'the,
time is coming when we must pay
more attention to it."j
Though he would not now sug-
gest legislation to curb pollution,
Prof. Giever said, there may even-
tually be a need for it. -
