Nehru Proposes
Nuclear Test Ban
Indian Leader Requests Year Halt
fTo Cold War Hostilities in Speech
UNITED NATIONS OP)-Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru of
India proposed yesterday that the United Nations declare a moratorium
on the cold war and set aside a year for cooperation in all fields-
"political, cultural and whatever."
The Indian statesman made the suggestion in a wide-reaching
speech to the UN General Assembly. He came to New York after talks
with President John F. Kennedy in Washington on critical interna-
tional issues.
He called upon world statesmen to devote their full strength to
trying to avoid the terror of nuclear disaster/instead of thinking about
"burrowing under the earth and living like rats in a hole." On the

hip pe ExplainsRole
In Possible Infraction
By H. NEIL BERKSON
Brian Whipple, '62BAd, Editor-in-Chief of the Michigan Technic,
has explained his role in a possible technical violation of Student
Government Council campaign rules by council member Richard
G'Sell, '63E.
The issue revolves around a special one-page edition of the Tech-
nic, distributed free-of-charge ,Tuesday, which was devoted primarily
"to asking engineers to "take meas-

Suits Makes
Predictions
On Econom
By HARRY PERLSTADT
A University economist yester-
day predicted an excellent year
ahead for the automotive indus-
try but was still disappointed with
the economic picture as a whole.
Prof. Daniel Suits of the eco-
nomics department predicted a
"phenomenal" increase of 25 per
cent over 1961 and about a five
per cent increase over the record
set by the auto industry in 1955.
But he said the economy was
missing the dynamic figures which
would be sufficient to, restore" it
to a satisfactory level, even though
there were inroads into unemploy-
ment.
He based his predictions upon a
mathematical model consisting of
32 formulae derived from the past
behavior of the economy. Present
figures are then inserted and the
characteristics of next year's econ-
omy emerge.
The predictions indicated little
rise in residential construction
(housing) or plant and equipment
expenditures. Prof. Suits said that
the biggest question in the fore-
cast was the consumer liquid asset
accumulation. This is the amount
of money which the consumers
have to spend. If the consumers
spend less, then 1962 will be a
remarkably poor year. The econ-
omy must grow in the consumer
sector, he said.
Substantial pick-ups in the
economy will occur if there is an
upward revision of the plant
equipment expenditures or the
housing expenditures. However,
Prof'. Suits did not see increased
housing expenditures.
Police Arrest
McComb Girl
JACKSON, Miss. (P)-Police ar-
rested Jessie Lee Divens, 12-year-
old McComb Negro girl, in the
white section of a city bus yes-
terday after she refused to obey
orders to move on.
Juvenile officer John Osborne
said Youth Court Judge Carl
Guernsey released the girl to the
custody of the Rev. G. R. Horton,
chaplain at Campbell College,
where she attended classes.
The girl was one of several
Negro students dismissed from

a few weeks ago. They were ex-

a demonstration on the steps of
City Hall.

weapons tests, he said a treaty
providing effective controls is
necessary-an issue upon which he
and President. John F. Kennedy
had previously announced agree-
ment.
,He noted that the Assembly had
had 'approved 'a voluntary mora-
torium, but added "no .one imag-
ines that a'voluntary moratorium
is going to solve this'question."
He said his reaction to nuclear
tests was strong-"I think Athat
they are basically 'evil."
Favorable Reaction
General reaction to the 37-
minute speech was favorable, but
some delegates said they had
hoped for more concrete proposals.
Adlai E. Stevenson, the Chief
United States delegate who lis-
tened closely as.Nehru spoke, com-
mented that the idea for a coop-
erative year was a good one, but
not new. He said the United States
has been cooperating with other
nations for years.
Nehru asserted that little was
being said in the world about co-
operation "but much is said.about
conflict."
He recalled that the United
Nations succeeded in setting aside
a geophysical year devoted to sci-
ence.
"It might now decide," he added,.
"to devote a year not to speeches
about peace, but, to furtherance 'of
cooperative activities in.any field
-political, cultural or whatever."
Hart Salutes
Peace Corp
EAST LANSING O})-Sen. Phil-
ip A. Hart (D-Mich) sent 33
peace corpsmen off to Africa yes-
terday with a confession, that
their assignment is as appealing
to him as a seat in Congress.
"I envy you beyond the abil-
ity to express myself,", Hart said
in a graduation ceremony for the
group, who completed eight weeks
of training at Michigan State
University.
The 33 young men and women,
including three married couples,
will leave New York for Nigeria
Nov. 24 after a home leave. All
will be assigned as teaching and
research assistants at the Uni-
versity of Nigeria in Nsukka, Ni-
geria. All are college graduates. .
During their training period
here, they were kept on a six-
day, 60'- hour - week schedule,
studying African languages and
history, Communist doctrine, bas-
ic preventive medicine and a va-
riety of other subjects.
"This is the most dramatic as-
signment that anyone could as-
pire to," said Hart, who returned
recently from a month-long tour
of Africa. "Waging all-out peace
is just as profitable and just as
exciting as waging all-out war."

Student Body
Protests Ban
In New York
About 1,400 students went on
strike at Hunter College in the
Bronx New York Thursday for the
right to invite anyone, including
known Communists, to speak to
student groups at municipal col-
leges..
g While, roughly 40 per cent of
the student body boycotted classes
in a one-day demonstration, 2,200
othei, students attended classes as
usual. They crossed lines of about
200 pickets who marched outside
the campus gates, wearing pla-
cards and shouting watchwords.
Benjamin J. Davis, national sec-
retary of the Communist party,
and Malcolm X, a leader of the
Black Muslim movement have
both recently been denied forums
at Queens College. I
, The National Review, a maga-
zine of conservative opinion, was
told last June that it could. no
longer rent the assembly hall of
Hunter College in Manhattan.
Campus conservatives alleged
that student liberals were grieved
primarily over the ban on Com-
munist speakers.
Ne roes File
Texas Suit
BY DAVID LOPEZ
Special To'The Daily
AUSTIN-Three Negro students
yesterday filed suit in the federal
court in Austin asking for com-
plete racial integration of Univer-
sity of Texas dormitories.
The action came only two days
before the board of regents will
begin meeting with a review of
integration polioies on its agenda.
There are now an estimated 500
Negro students at the university.
There is one segregated dormitory
for women, two for men. There is
one desegregated wing in a men's
dorm.
The suit asks the court to take
.jurisdiction under the 14th Amend-
ment. It seeks to have segregation
rules judged unconstitutional and
to requiresthe university to accept
residence 'hall applications with-
out regard to race or color.

ures to secure the election of
fellow engineer Dick G'Sell."
Council President Richard Nohl,
'62BAd, when apprised of the sit-
uation, stated, "There's a possibil-
ity of a couple violations which
may warrant further investiga-
tion."
Technic Support
Whipple and G'Sell first ap-
proached him at a party three or
four weeks ago to ask for Technic
support in the coming election.
Whipple said he made no commit-
ment then, and the issue seemed to
be dead until late last week. At
that time a friend, of G'Sell's,
Lawrence Monberg, '62A&D,
dropped in on Whipple, and in the
course of a long conversation, plans
were made to back G'Sell editori-
ally.
Whipple talked with G'Sell and
subsequently explained that, while
the Technic, a monthly, was not
due for publication, he might be
able to convey his message through
The Arch, a one-page engineering
college newsletter distributed at
irregular intervals.
With the assistance of Monberg
and G'Sell, Whipple prepared a
one-page edition and sent it to
the printers. Momberg solicited an
advertisement for the issue.
Checks with Director
Meanwhile, G'Sell checked with
Election Director Barbara Perl-
man, '62Ed, and SGC Executive
Vice-President Per Hanson, '62,
and chairman of the rules and
credentials committee, both of
whom told him that he could have
the official editorial support of
The Arch without any fear of
violation.
At this point Whipple contacted
Arch Editor John Stark, '63E. "It
was done behind my back and then
they called me," Stark explained.
He did not want The Arch in-
volved so Whipple, already com-
mitted to the printers, decided to
use the Technic masthead. The
issue appeared Tuesday, the first
day of SGC voting.
Whipple said he acted complete-
ly on his own. The other senior
editors were not informed of the
action until Monday morning,
when the special issue-had already
gone to press.

Demonstration Effects
By JUDITH BLEIER
Political and social demonstrations are the result of a lack of
organizational outlets for expressing deeply-felt convictions, Profes-
sors Daniel Katz of the psychology department and David Bordua of
the sociology department agreed yesterday.
However, the two men differed in their opinions of the effective-
ness of picketing, vigils and other types of demonstrations. "Personal
needs, such as, the need to express

one's desire for peace, are outside
our organizational structure,"
Prof. Katz said.
Often individuals find "no com-
fortable outlet for these energies,"
Prof. Bordua noted. F
Present Opinion
Prof. Katz said-that demonstra-
tions, in addition to satisfying
personal needs, could be an effec-
tive means of presenting public
opinion if individuals do not take
on the attitude that they "will not
work.sThis is a self-defeating
prophest.B"
But Prof. Bordua noted that
whether one wants a demonstra-
tion to be effective often depends
upon his point of view. "While I
whole-heartedly back the aims of
the demonstrators for civil liber-
ties, I seriously question the wis-
dom of the position taken by the
so-called 'peace demonstrators'."
"Public opinion battles don'tt
necessarily do any good," he went
on. "It depends upon who is do-
ing the demonstrating and the
amount of force behind the pro-
test.
Not Persuaded
"Demonstrations haven't kept
us out of war yet," he said. "Our
government officials should keep
in mind that Soviet leaders will
not necessarily be persuaded by
American peace demonstrations."
"It is easy for policy makers
to ignore giroups that have a long
history of demonstration, such as
college students, professors and
the Quakers," Prof. Bordua said.
Prof. Katz noted a trend to-
ward increased political demon-
strations among students. "Until
recently there was no immediate
problems in which. demonstrations
could be effective," he explained.
Students Involved
But becuase of the recent de-
,segregation and peace causes,
students are becoming more in-
volved, he said.
Both men agreed that the criti-
cism that American students are
apathetic is an unfair one. "This

Olympic Champion Sells Ski Clothes

Old Olympic champion skiers never die, they just turn professional
and fade out of the limelight.
Chief case in point is that of Penny Ptou, a cute 23-year-old

Now, one year after she starred in the winter Olympics, she is pushing
sales of ski clothes for a nationaltchain store.

Her performance consisted of standing at a microphone and

all-even the prices. Quite a switch from performing on the snowy
ski runs.

she said.
