They said he has taken asylum

Hundreds of demonstrators pa-

scattered elections yesterday.
Some margins were large, such as incumbent Democrat Robert.
Wagner's victory over Republican State's Attorney Louis Lefkowitz
and insurgent Democrat City Comptroller Anthony Gerosa for the
mayorship of New York City. With more than 95 per cent of the

Pollock Raps
Leg islature
LANSING-Constitutional Con-
vention delegate Prof. James K.
Pollock (R-Ann Arbor), former
chairman of the political science
department, yesterday blasted the
state Legislature and called for a
new overall design.
In testimony before the Com-
mittee on Legislative Organiza-
tions, Prof. Pollock asked that the
Legislature be a full time, contin-
uous body, apportioned in a fair,
manner, with provisions for auto-
matic reapportionment after the
federal census.
Claiming that it is "easier to
rear a new structure than to re-
tain the old one," Prof. Pollock
also proposed a salary of $12,000
per year for legislators plus trav-
eling expenses. (Current emolu-
ments to legislators are $5,000 a
year plus $1,250 expenses.) But
the Legislature would be a full
time job meeting quarterly or
semi-annually.
Prof. Pollock charged that the
Legislature "is not properly re-
sponsive to public opinion during
the period of its most important
decisions. The farther away it
gets from election day, the less
responsive it is to popular desires."
He suggested that the committee'
procedures be changed assuring
open, prompt and responsible de-
liberation and decisions.
Prof. Pollock said that "instead
of being a constructive check on
the executive the Legislature more
frequently acts as a definite bar
in blocking constructive executive
policy. Instead of .refining and
improving the proposals present-
ed by the executive, it more fre-
quently damages them, or fails to
consider them, or rejects them for
extraneous reasons."
He called for adoptions of a
strong section in the constitution
on incompability "under which it
would be impossible for members
to receive retainers or continue to
represent private interests during
the period of their legislative
service."

James Mitchell for the governor-
ship of New Jersey. With 80 per
cent of the precincts reporting,
Hughes had 898,226 votes to Mit-
chell's 853,226.
Find Consolation
Republicans can find some con-
solation in their ouster of the
Democrats from all major offices
in Louisville and Jefferson County
for the first time in 28 years.
Republican William Cowger was
elected Louisville mayor over
Board of Alderman Chairman
Democrat William S. Milburn. On
the county level, Republican Mar-
low Cook defeated State House of
Representatives Ma jority Floor
Leader Democrat Thomas L. Ray
for Jefferson County Judge.
In Detroit, Attorney Jerome P.
Cavanaugh apparently upset in-
cumbent Mayor Louis C. Miriani
in the city election that saw Dem-
ocrat Lucen Nedzi coast to an
easy victory over perennial GOP
contender Walter Czarnecki, in the
special election to fill the vacancy
created in the First Congressional
District when incumbent Demo-
crat Thaddeus T. Machrowitz was
appointed to the federal bench.
Cavanaugh Leads
Cavanaugh led Miriani 118,838-
98,847 with almost 70 per cent of
the precincts reporting, and his
lead looked insurmountable.
In Virginia, Democrat Albertis
S. Harrison, Jr. easily won the
governorship over Republican H.
Clyde Pearson, by over 100,000
votes. Harrison had the strong
backing of Sen. Harry Flood Byrd
(D-Va).
And in Pennsylvania, the state's
first woman supreme court justice,
Democrat Anne X. Alpern, held a
steady lead over Republican Henry
X. O'Brien, judge of the Pittsburgh
Common Pleas Court, in a race
for the supreme court seat. -

Legislators
Hedge Plan
LANSING (P)-Legislative bud-
getmakers refused to make any
promises yesterday on Wayne
State University's plan to raise
tuitions in return for an increase
in state support.
Finance committees of the House
and Senate indicated there would
be no decision on the proposal
until next year.
"We needmore information,"
said Rep. Arnell Engstrom (R-
Traverse City), House Ways and
Means Committee chairman.
"There is too much involved here
for us to make any kind of a com-
mitment yet."
Uncork Plan
Wayne State administrators and
the Board of Governors uncorked
the plan last month in an attempt
to pry a $217,000 emergency ap-
propriation out of the Legislature.
Lawmakers reduced their appro-
priation by that much between the'
1960-61 and 1961-62 fiscal years.
It currently stands at $15.5 million.
Said WSU Provost Arthur Neef:
"This is not a final answer to.
anything, but at least it is a step.
Rep. Carrol S. Newton (R-Del-
ton) told the educatorshe wanted
to appraise the potential effect of
the plan on other state universi-
ties before making any promises to
Wayne.
Wonders Why
"I am wondering why WSU just
doesn't go ahead and raise tuition
without this attempt to get mote
money from the legislature, Eng-
strom said. "If they need the
money that much, they can get it
that way."

MOSCOW (a)'- -Premier Nikita S.
Khrushchev acknowledged yester-
day that nuclear tests in the at-
mosphere are harmful to the
health of the world's people and
that the Soviet Union is being
criticized for them but said "We
will stop when the others stop."
The premier's statements were
in a toast and to newsmen at a
huge reception in the Kremlin on
the 44th anniversary of the Bol-
shevik Revolution. The reception
followed the traditional Red
Square parade, including a 21-
minute military show.
Foreign attaches said they noted
only two new items in the 9-
minute section given to weapons.
These included what appeared to
be a short-range'solid fuel rocket
with a heavy undercarriage, and
an amphibious vehicle slightly
larger than seen here before.
Chats with Newsmen
In his wide-ranging chat with
newsmen, who pushed up to a tar-
rier of tables separating hifh-
ranking guests from the 4,000 per-
sons in the top floor dining room
of the new Kremlin auditorium,
Khrushchev declared "It is not
good to push one another around"
about Berlin.
The Soviet Union, he said, ib
not "superstitious about dates,
whether the date is the 13th or
the 31st" but will not wait in-
definitely for a solution.
Khrushchev once set Dec. 31
for the signing of a German peace
treaty but has since withdrawn
the deadline.
He denied reports that three,
Soviet cosmonauts were killed in
an abortive Sputnik launching In
October, or that launchings had
been planned for the traditional
observance yesterday and during
the recent Soviet Party Congress.
Risks Involved
"No matter how sure we are,
certain risks are involved, launch-
ing is not 100 per cent sure," he
said. "It would be too bad if we
had had to interrupt the Congress
to go to a funeral." He added that
there will be other launchings but
none is planned in the immediate
future.
Khrushchev replied with a smile,
"We stop at night, in the morn-
ing we start again" when asked
if the Soviet Union had stopped its t

told the Party Congress on Oct.
17 the current tests apparently
would be ended the last of Octo-

to shoot off any more 50-megatn
bombs.

EYEWITNESS A CCO UNT:

Litchfield Describes Effects of Hurricane

By RICHARD KRAUT
Peter Litchfield, '63, founder;
and presideft of Unified Research'
Foundation, is currently engaged,
in raising funds for his organi-
zation.
On October 26, he left for Brit-
ish Honduras with hopes of hold-
ing a business meeting with con-
tacts, recovering stolen equip-
ment, setting up a boar-hunting
trip for a group at the University
and bringing back a shipment of
animals.
Litchfield only intended to stay
until Oct. 30. However, he was
caught in Belize, the capital of
British Honduras, by the hurricane

[if it does?' they merely said, 'Then
God's telling us it's time to go.'
They just refused to believe that
anything would happen."
Holy Memorial Hospital was sit-
uated 30 feet from the small sea
wall. It was made of steel and ce-
ment and had three stories. One
wing of the building was made of
Canadian spruce.
Struck Early
"The hurricane was due to strike
at twelve noon Oct. 30," Litch-
field said. But it struck at mid-
night, 12 hours early.
When the gales started, people

"just peeled off." All but one of
the windows, by that time, were
broken.
Halls Flooded
The majority of the people on
the second floor of the hospital
were in the halls. Suddenly a door
broke off a patient's room and all
the salt water came out of the
room and into the hall. From there
it poured out onto a porch and
created a great suction.
Litchfield and a friend took
metal beds and stacked them
against the door, hoping to stop
the suction. But the mattresses,
springs and metal parts of the
bed were "crumuled. crushed and.

After the hurricane, people, in-

the stores, putting anything of
value into sacks.
No contact was made with an-

time, Miami and New York radios,
were broadcasting that the hurri-
cane was due to strike in two or
three hours-just about six hours
after it had already stopped.
No bodies were found for about
two or three hours. Later on,
however, police estimates reported
that 1,000 had died. "I would guess

Priority will go to "those who have
