Delay Cape Shot
To Next Tuesday
NASA Says Operation To Resume
With New Countdown on Monday
CAPE CANAVERAL (A-A still stormy Atlantic forced the Unit-
ed States early this morning into a tenth postponement of Astronaut
John H. Glenn's scheduled flight in orbit around the world.
- It was set again for next Tuesday.
Weather Briefing
The announcement came at a special weather briefing by the
National Aeronautics and Space {Administration at 1:05 a.m.
A NASA spokesman said "weather conditions preclude a launch
attempt today."
The NASA official said the whole operation would be re-
cycled and a full new countdown would begin next Monday. He quot-

calmly and saying:
Marginal Condition
"I guess it was to be expected.
We all knew the weather was mar-
"I learned very early in the
flight test program that you have
to control your emotions - you
don't let these kinds of things
throw you or affect your ability
to perform the mission."
Col. John A. (Shorty) Powers,A
Mercury astronaut spokesmen,
said that if the great adventure
does not get under way today be-
tween 7:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
there is a possibility it might be
put off four or five days.
One Development
One weather development that
worried officials late yesterday
was a possibility of thick clouds
over the launch area here. This
would be bad, because it would
spoil optical tracking of the great
Atlas missile as it lifted Glenn's
capsule toward orbit.
Weathermen reported about 5
p.m., that disturbed conditions
continued in the Central and
Western Atlantic.
One storm in the Western At-
lantic seemed to be moving north
off the Mercury flight track. A
bad weather front churned us,
seas near the area-500 miles east
of ;Bermuda-where Marine Lt.
Col. Glenn would land if he made
only one circle of the earth.
This front, weather men said,
should move South .during the
night but seas "will remain mod-
erate to rough." It is important
that the space capsule come down
in fairly gentle waves, lest it
and the astronaut be lost.,
The Thursday postponement
yesterday was announced at 1:18
a.m.,' when officials decided the
weather was just too risky.

Katanga 'Set
ToEnd Split
With Congo
Katanga Assembly decided yester-
day to end its secession from the
Congo-on several conditions.
Among other things, it demanded
that The Congo government take
a strong stand against Commun-
ism and "the.machinations of cer-
tain imperialist countries."
The assembly, which has been
debating the question off and on
since Jan. 4, took action at a
stormy four-hour session at which
President Moise Tshombe charged
the United States State Depart-
ment was "in the grip of voracious
The financiers, he said, want to
make Katanga their colony and
eliminate Katanga copper from
world markets.
The legislators were called into
session by Tshombe to consider
ratification of the Kitona Agree-
ment. This was the pact he made
with Congo Premier Cyrille Adoula
just before Christmas to end Ka-
tanga's 18-months of secession.

'many of the freshmen in the resi-
dence halls had even heard of IQC
before the women-in-the-quads
proposal came up," he said.
Council Program
Geary plans to attempt imple-
mentation of a council program
in which I.QC would meet every
other week, with a monthly meet-
ing in an off-week set up to dis-

Another attempt at liberalizing

Assistant Dean of Men John
Bingley reported yesterday that
the Phi Delta Theta case remains
under consideration and that no
decisions have been reached so far.'
Dean Bingley, Dean of Men
Walter B. Rea, and Assistant Dean'
of Men for Fraternities Lou Rice
met yesterday afternoon with Ver-
lin Jenkins, a representative, of
Phi Delta Theta national frater-
nity, who drove in from Akron.
"Our talk was merely of a pre-
liminary, fact finding nature,"
Dean Bingley said.
Jenkins is a volunteer worker
for the national and has no au-
thority to effect a solution for
Phi Delta Theta's current prob-
lems. A national officer for the
fraternity will be on campus next
Wednesday and will meet at that
time with chapter representatives
and Dean Rice.
Dean Bingley reiterated that he
wants to do nothing until he has
talked with national officials. "I do
not want the fraternity to be disci-
plined unduly by both the Univer-
sity and the national ati the same
time," he said.
He said further that the local
chapter had taken certain respon-
sible actions of its own with re-
spect to the five men involved in
the Zeta Psi raid at a chapter
meeting heldWednesday night.
He indicated that the actions
were substantial enough to have
some bearing on, any final decision.
Phi Delt President Bruce Board-
man, '62BAd, had no comment on
the chapter meeting.

TIN Unit Rebuffs Cuba
On U.S. Invasion Claim,
UNITED NATIONS W--The'United Nations main political com-
mittee sharply rebuffed Cuba yesterday on its charge that the United
States is planning an invasion aimed at overthrowing Prime Minister
Fidel Castro's government.
By an overwhelming vote the 104-nation committee rejected a
key provision in a Czechoslovak-Romanian resolution which would
have in effect upheld the Cuban charge in the face of repeated United
States denials.
The committee voted 50 against and only 11 in favor of the para-
graph which would have had the Assembly appeal to the United States'
to halt alleged interference in

Initiative and Referendum

The addition of 'initiative and
referendum to the Council Plan
made by Student Government
Council Wednesday night will al-
low legislation to be initiated by
the student body and to ,be re-
ferred directly to the student body
by the council.
The principle behind such an
amendment to the plan is to give
some of the responsibility of legis-
lation directly to the student body.
Initiative allows any student to
bring legislation before the Coun-
cil or before the entire student
body. If brought before the Coun-
cil, it may be passed by Council
itself or Council may refer it to
the student body.
Vote To Refer
Referendum is the procedure by
which Council itself may vote to
refer legislation to the vote of the
student body, as it will be doing on
the. National Student Association
issue in the March election.
By the same referral procedure,
a student may petition to have
legislation already passed by the
Council put before the student
body for a vote.
Adoption of legislation under'
both initiative and referendum is
by a majority of those voting on
the issue, not by a majority of
those voting in the entire election.
However, in cases of change in the
Council plan, a two-thirds vote of
those voting on the issue is re-

In either the case of a majority
vote or a two-thirds vote, there
must be 75 per cent of those
voting in the election or 3,000
people voting on the issue, which-
ever is greater, for it to be con-
In legislation passed both by
initiative and referendum, the
Council is bound to the legislation
until after the next regularly
scheduled election.
At Its Wednesday meeting, Coun-
cil passedntheamendment unani-
mously. However, amendment to
the Council Plan reqires the fur-
ther approval of the Regents,
which will probably be handled at
their March meeting.
Varying Concepts
Opinions on the worth and use-
fulness of the devices of initiative
and referendum vary, because of
varying conceptions among politi-
cal scientists on whether the voters
should have the responsibility to
legislate and whether the respon-
sibility given to the voters is wisely
used, Professor Daniel McHargue
of the political science department
The device of initiative can be
used by a dissatisfied public to
by-pass action taken by the legis-
lature, Prof. McHargue said.
Council, however, showed confi-
dence in the judgment and respon-
sibility of the student body. They
voted to delete a clause in the
section in the amendment on ref-
erendum which stated that legisla-
tion to be referred to the student

body must be previously acted on
by the Council.
Restricted Areas
However, Council has restricted
the areas which may be voted on
in an all-campus election to spe-
cific -provisions in the Council
These provisions include ap-
proval or disapproval and the
calendaring of student activities;
coordination of and delegation to
student activities; origination of
student projects; expression of
student opinion; and the making
of amendments.
Mott Cautions
Against Using,
WASHINGTON (41)-The Navy's
chief legal officer cautioned sen-
ators yesterday against using
"amateur anti-Communists" or
"professional 'witch-hunters" in
any efforts to alert Americans
against the menace and dangers
of Communism.
Rear Adm. William C. Mott,
Navy judge advocate general, said
"one bad experience" convinced
him that before he participated in
any public seminars on Commu-
nism, he must know who else was
speaking and who sponsored the
Local Issue
The "bad experience," he said,
arose when a local speaker at-
tempted to confuse talks by him-
self and others with a local issue.
"We don't have any need for
amateur anti-Communists," the
admiral said. "They are about as
useful as amateur brain surgeons.
"We don't have any need for
space-age witch hunters either."

Cuban internal affairs. There were
39 abstentions, mostly Asian-Afri-
can countries.
Not in Favor
The 11 yes votes were cast by
Cuba and the Communist bloc. Not
a single Latin American country
outside Cuba voted' in, favor of
that paragraph.
Another part calling for the
United States and Cuba to settle
their differences . by peaceful
means through negotiations lost

Since the two paragraphs were
the meat of the resolution no vote
on it as a whole was needed.

cis T. P. Plimpton said it was a

The committee action will be
reported formally to the United
Nations General Assembly, but no

The outcome was a victory for
the United States, which had de-
scribed the 11-day debateas an
outburst of cold war violence in-
tended to counteract the action of
the Organization of American
States excluding Cuba from the
Inter-American system.
Most Latin American delegates
told the committee that Cuba iso-
lated herself from her sister re-
publics by adopting a Communist
system of government.
In a final speech yesterday Ma-
rio Garcia-Inchastegui, the Cu-
ban delegate, accused the United
States of trying to drag all of Lat-
in America into an act of military
aggression against his country.
In a bitter anti-United States
speech he charged President John

The department said that bond

Of the old bonds eligible for
the exchange, $8 billion were sold
