On House Plan Draft
Student Government Participation
Recommended in Handling Project
By DAVID MARCUS
Interquadrangle Council President Thomas Moch, '63E, yester-
day called for the inclusion of student government in the rewriting
of the Michigan House Plan and the 'formation of a student-faculty-
administration committee ,to handle the project.
At present, Assistant Dean of Men for, Residence Halls John
Hale is doing a first draft of the revision which he will later submit
to the Residence Halls Board of Governors and IQC for criticism
and additional ideas.

'Pink Slip'
Di'scussion
At Wednesday's meeting, Stu-
dent Government Council post-
poned for one week consideration
of the residence hall confidential
reports motion presented by In-
terquadrangle Council Presidentl
Thomas Moch, '62, and a propos-
ed substitute motion by Kenneth
McEldowney, Grad.
Moch's motion, which was orig-
inally introduced last spring, sup-
ported the 'pink slips,' as the re-
ports are called. However, he be-
lieved that the existence and na-
ture of the reports should be made
known \to the students.
McEldowney stated in his mo-
tion, which was introduced at the
meeting, that the student should
be permitted to view his own eval-
uation. Also, "such topics as per-
sonal appearance, courtesy and
consideration,nstudentrattitude,
and adjustment toward the Uni-
versity (should) be eliminated
from the reports."
The quad reports are filled out
by the staff assistant of each
house each year and approved by
the resident adviser.
'U' May Ask
New Standards
Of Transfers
Transfer students from the
state's community colleges may
face altered admissions standards
designed to insure that they will
be better prepared for work at the
University, James H. Robertson,,
Associate Dean of the literary col-
lege said yesterday.
Officials of the literary college
will meet with Community Col-
lege Association representatives
later this month and ask them to
require their students to complete
courses roughly equal to those
taken by regular University stu-
dents, Director of Admissions
Clyde Vroman explained.
Other recommendations will
suggest that 1) transfer students be
required to have performed scho-
lastically well enough in commun-
ity colleges to give "reasonable"
indication of success in the Uni-
versity, and that 2) applicants
from community colleges who
have earned an Associate of Arts
degree be given preferential con-
sideration for admission here.
More than one-fourth of all
transfer students fromrthe state's
community colleges come to the

would be exclusion of one of the
"major factors in revising the
plan," Moch said.
Big Defect
"One of the biggest defects in'
the, entire House Plan is exclu-
sion of any mention of student
government.
"Since the House Plan was writ-
ten, student government has be-
come an integral force in further-
ing the philosophy and goals of
the residence halls," he said.
Moch suggested that five or six
students, faculty members and ad-
ministrators form a committee
which would be charged with re-
writing the plan.
Outline Detail
Moch explained that the com-
mittee would outline in detail
every area that the House Plan
should cover and turn over the
drafting to one or two members
of the committee.
The report would then be re-
submitted to the committee for
approval and then go to the Resi-
dence Halls Board of Governors
and IQC for approval.
Moch also suggested postpone-
ment of any changes in the House
Plan until after the coming quad-
rangle conference on Oct. 28 which
will discuss "The Perfect House"
and called for a revised House
Plan which would contain "theory
yet setting down basic goals."
He noted that in rewriting all
the functions of the residence
halls should be considered, both
social and educational.
Last June
Hale, when the revision was
first announced last June, at-
tributed the necessity of revision
'to "largely outdated language and
means of expression."
He said at that time that one
of the purposes of the revision
would be to bring the plan more
into line with present day prac-
tices such as the use of graduate
students as residence hall staff
men instead of faculty advisors as
the document originally proposed.
Saboteurs Hit
TV Message
By de Gaulle
ALGIERS (P)-Saboteurs dyna-
mited the Algiers TV transmitter
last night and broadcast a voice
saying, "De Gaulle, it is you who
will disappear, who will fall."
The blasts wiped out scheduled
French program featuring Presi-
dent 'Charles de Gaulle.
The explosions, blamed on the
rightwing European secret army
organization, knocked out the
transmitting antenna of Algiers'
sole channel. They were followed
by a voice broadcast on the audio
channel by underground army of-1
ficials including the condemned
fugitive ex-Gen. Raoul Salan.

Rusk Talks
To Gromyko
On Berlint
NEW YORK (/P)-Secretary of
State Dean Rusk and Soviet For-
eign Minister Andrei Gromyko
discussed the Berlin crisis for
about three hours yesterday in a
"friendly and businesslike atmos-
phere," but concluded without
discovering an acceptable basis for
negotiations on ending the crisis.
They also discussed the future
of the United Nations, particularly
the post of Secretary-General, now
vacant.
Gromyko is understood to have
stuck to the publicly stated Soviet
line of readiness to negotiate about
a Berlin solution based on a peace
treaty with divided Germany.
Rusk is believed to have made
clear that the Western Powers re-
quire .a much broader basis before
they will agree to negotiations.
Agree To Meet
What the two men did agree on
was another meeting between
them here next week. By that time
both will have reported to their
governments and possibly receive
new instructions.
The two men met at a midtown
Manhattan hotel where Rusk had
invited Gromyko for lunch. Each
was accompanied by a 'panel of
advisers including UN Ambassador
Adlai E. Stevenson on the Ameri-
can side and Deputy Foreign Min-
ister Valerian Zorin with Gro-
myko.
During the luncheon Gromyko'
is understood to have made clear
to Rusk directly, as he had previ-
ously publicly stated, that he in-
tends to press for a three-man
board to succeed UN Secretary-
General Dag Hammarskjold.
Argue on Troika
The discussion on this point
was as inconclusive as that on the
Berlin problem. Rusk argued that
the Soviet "Troika" proposal had
no prospect of success in the
United Nations, and that the UN's
urgent need is for an executive
head to take over the duties per-
formed by Hammarskjold.
Rusk reportedly laid heavy em-
phasis on the avowed determina-
tion of the Western Powers to
defend what they consider their
vital interests in West Berlin.
Gromyko is understood to have
followed the general line taken by
Premier Nikita Khrushchev with
Kennedy when they met in Viennaj
in early June.

Operationsj
Set To Begin
In Fall, '62
Full Year Program
Allows More Students
Wayne State University will be- I
gin year-round operation on a
quarter system next fall, under
plans approved yesterday by its
Board of Governors.
WSU will thus join Michigan
State University and Ferris Insti-
tute as state institutions employ-
ing the quarter system.
Michigan State University Oak-
land and the Dearborn Center are
presently on trimester schedules,
and the University has announced
plans to begin a modified trimester
with split summer session within a
few years.
More Students
The year-round operations will
allow WSU to handle more stu-'
dents with no increase in facilities,
President Clarence B. Hilberry ex-
plained. It will also provide for
educational advantages to the stu-
dents, since they will concentrate1
on fewer topics (courses) at one
time, he pointed out.
The system calls for four eleven- ,
week quarters of instruction to be;
offered each year, with most stu-
dents taking courses for three.;
The four quarters would run'
from October to Christmas, New,
Year's through March, April
through June, and July through'
September, Hilberry said. The+
plans also call for more Saturday+
classes, thus effectively putting1
WSU on a six-day week.1
In addition to more efficient use+
of facilities, the system will also
allow WSU students to obtain jobs
during periods other than thej
usual summer vacation season,+
when the labor market is over-
crowded. This would be particu-
larly beneficial to metropolitan
Detroit students, Hilberry said.
Social Dutyt
"It is the social duty of public'
colleges and universities," Hilberry'
said, "to provide means for ac-
commodating more students. Wec
are going to have to handle more
students."
The study of year-round opera-i
tions has been going on for four+
years at WSU, he added, and cul-
minated with the decision that the
quarter system was best suited to
the institution.
But he emphasized that the
change to a quarter system alone
would not ensure added capacity
at WSU.
Hoover Cites
Red Program
WASHINGTON ()-FBI Direc-
tor J. Edgar Hoover sees the Com-
munist Party line as "a deceitful
technique to hoodwink and beguile
us."
But he cautions against mere
negative anti-Communism. t
"The great danger today is that
the constant reiteration of thet
party line by Communists-day
after day-may cause their de-
mands to be accepted as valid and
truthful."
Hoover's description of the
Communist Party line is set forth 1
in a 2,500-word study preparedc
for the Senate Internal Security
subcommittee.1

CHEMISTRY:
To Continue
Evaluations
Of Students
By MICHAEL OLINICK
The chemistry department will
continue to use its non-academic
evaluations for students in ele-.
mentary general courses despite
protests of the Student Govern-
ment Council.
Waivers will be granted to in-
dividual students, however, if they
are willing to promise not to ask
for later character references
from faculty men connected with
the course, Prof. Robert W. Parry
said yesterday. '
Prof. Parry, who heads up the
elementary general course division
of the chemistry department, said
the evaluations "render extreme-
ly important service to the stu-
dents."
Council Motion
The Council passed a motion by
former Daily Editor Thomas Hay-
den, '61, this spring which op-
posed the use of the forms which
ask the instructor to comment on
the student's personal matters,
emotional stability, social respon-
sibility and loyalty to the UnitedI
States.
Prof. Leigh Anderson, chairman
of the-chemistry department, said
that members of his staff had dis-
cussed and re-examined the eval-n
uations after the SGC motion, butL
could find no reason to forbide
their use.
"The questions on the form are i
standard ones and there is noth- b
ing unreasonable about them. The -
last thing on earth we want to do
is hurt the students," Prof. An-
derson said.
Remember Students
The evaluation cards were ini-
tiated about a decade ago, he said,
when the beginning chemistry
classes grew too large for instruc-
tors to remember all their stu- v
dents. The information on theP
cards is precisely the informationd
sought by medical schools and
governmental agencies to which t
students apply, he stressed. f
"If we didn't have the evalua-
tion forms," Prof. Anderson said,-
"we wouldn't be able to write rec-n
ommendations for these students." i
The evaluation forms are used
in Chemistry 103, 104, and 107 i
which have a total enrollmente
near 1,500.a
Prof. Parry and Prof. Anderson
both said that they knew of noo
case where a professor reported a
any indication of disloyalty to then
United States.-

Free China Delegate
Refutes Russian Item
UNITED NATIONS (/P) - The
general assembly's steering com-
mittee last night recommended
full scale debate on China's repre-
sentation in the United Nations.'
Previously the issue had been
shelved for 10 successive years.
By a vote of 15-0 with 5 ab-
stentions the conmittee approved
a New Zealand proposal supported
by the United States calling for
debate on "the question of repre-
sentation of China in the United
Nations."
But while agreeing for the first
time to full scale UN debate, the
United. States affirmed its in-
tention to oppose seating Com-
munist China in the United Na-
tions.
Pass Soviet Item
By a vote of 7 to 3 with 10
abstentions the committee also
approved a Soviet item entitled
"restoration of the lawful rights
of the People's Republic of China
(Red China) in the United Na-
tions."
Charles W. Yost, the U. S. dele-
gate, said his country was prepared
to take part in debate on both,
although it took strong exception
to the wording of the Soviet item.
"We oppose representation in
the United Nations by tl e Chinese
Communists who fought a war
against United Nations troops in
Korea, who constantly defied the
United Nations ever since, who
publicly advocate the use of force
in international relations and have
no democratic mandate to repre-
sent the Chinese people," Yost
declared.

ATHLETES REJOICE:
'South Quad Receives New Net

By JEFF HEUER
The University has made a new
addition to its already extensive
recreational facilities in the form
of a basketball hoop on the tri-
angle behind South Quadrangle.
"I believe the hoop is remove-'
able and will be taken out the
Monday after Thanksgiving vaca-

for parking space again. It will!
be replaced the Monday after
spring vacation, Assistant Dean of
Men Mark Noffsinger, said last
night.
The hoop presumably was in-;

Peace Corps,
Bill Passed,
WASHINGTON (W) - Congress
voted permanent status for the
Peace Corps yesterday as Presi-
dent John F. Kennedy requested.
Both 'House and Senate passed
the bill and sent it to Kennedy
for his signature.
Still undecided, though, is
whether the Corps will get the $40
million Kennedy sought for its
first year of operations.
The money question was being
roned out, along with knotty for-
eign aid fund problems, by a Sen-
ate-House conference committee.
The House acted first yesterday
on a roll call vote of 253 to 78
after opponents exhausted tech-
nical objections that had held up
final action for several days..
The Senate approved the Peace
Corps bill on a voice vote, with
Sen. Carl T. Curtis (R-Neb) shout-
ing "No."
Curtis protested that the bill
did not require Peace Corps mem-
bers to be proficient in the lan-
guages of the countries to which
they would be sent.
The measure is pretty much
what the President sought for the
Peace Corps, which is headed by
his brother-in-law, Sargent Shriv-
er.
The compromise bill, worked
out by a House-Senate committee
after the two branches passed
different versions, puts a ceiling
of 275 on the number of admin-
istrative employes in the Corps'
Washington headquarters. And it
limits to 20 the nunber of super-
grade officials who may draw sal-
aries above regular civil service
scales.

decision to resume nuclear tests.
The vote in the 21-nation com-
mittee was 16-3, with only the
Soviet Union, Bulgaria and Czech-
oslovakia opposed. France ab-
stained and Mongi Slim, the As-
sembly president, did not vote.
By an identical vote the com-
mittee supported an Indian item
asking debate on voluntary sus-j
pension of tests without reference
to a treaty.
The United States and Britain
requested consideration of a test
ban treaty as a separate disarm-f
ament issue.
Ambassador Adlai E. Stevenson,
Chief U. S. Delegate, declared
that the problem of nuclear wea-
pons testing had become "far
more acute with the resumption of
testing in the atmosphere by the
Soviet government.
"The Soviet action not only
heightens international tension,
it impairs the security of other
powers and has already required
my country in the interests of its
own defense to also resume nuclear
testing, but underground and
without fallout."
He blamed the Soviet Union for
the breakup of the U. S.-Soviet-
British test ban treaty negotia-
tions in Geneva, but said that the
actual resumption of tests makes
the need' for an effectively con-
trolled treaty "more urgent than
ever."

He declared also that the United
States "welcomes the opportunity
to present its views on this ques-
tion, in the hope that through a
free and thorough exploration of
the problem in all its complexities
a just and equitable approach will
be maintained."
For the past 10 years the United
States had succeeded in getting
the Chinese issue postponed. This
was the first time there was no
disagreement over full scale de-
bate.
Nationalist China's T. F. Tsiang
denounced the Soviet item as
biased and propagandistic, while
the other was worded in such a
way as to implement freedom of
discussion in the Assembly.
Soviet deputy foreign minister
Valerian A. Zorin asserted the
Chinese Nationalists do not rep-
resent anyone except themselves,
and that the "hazy language" of
New Zealand would not suffice.
