the Burmese diplomat with a new
force working against Congolese
unity and stability, which the UN
is pledged to promote.
Another major divisive force,

Security Council meeting on The
Congo. Ceylon, Liberia and the
United Arab Republic asked the
11-nation Council to strengthen
U Thant's powers to oust mercen-
aries from Katanga and stop arms
shipments to Katanga President
Moise Tshombe's regime.
Hears Council Debate
U Thant sat in on the Council
debate after spending most of the
morning dealing with the new up-
rising. He told UN officials in
Leopoldville to restore order in

Albertville and Kindu, in the East-
ern Congo more than a thousand
miles from Leopoldville.
Dispatches from Leopoldville

saying that Antoine Gizenga, left-

If universities and colleges cannot cooperate voluntarily then an

of the American Council of Education, said in an interview yesterday.

The "bull session" is one of the
most valuable college experiences,
Prof. Newcomb said.
He emphasized that the effects

much to do with the values and at-.
titudes which faculty members
and administrators are trying to
bring about in students.

'Differences Small'

Rod Beaulieu, '58, administrative assistant to Democratic State
Central Committee Chairman Joe Collins, yesterday spoke to the
Young Democrats Club on subjects ranging from state party structure
to higher education to the Cons'titutional Convention.
Speaking on higher education, Beaulieu said that the Democrats
were opposed to a tuition increase. "Education should be public and
not private.
"'The raise of tuition would eventually make it prohibitive to
certain economic levels," he said.
Points to WSU
But he also pointed out that although the Democrats control
the boards of the three universities with constitutional status, the

golese people . . ." Barnes said.
As for the white mercenaries in

Of Graduates
February graduates have more
difficulty gaining financial sup-
port for further study, as most
foundation and scholarship agen-
cies are geared to the Septem-
ber - June academic year, En-
gineering College Associate Dean
James Mouzon reports.
This problem especially affects
the engineering school because
engineering curriculum requires
more than eight semesters. As a
result many engineers graduate in
February and then continue in
graduate work for the spring se-

The -waiver was granted by the

A unanimous vote of the Coun-

The local applied for a waiver

Of Dangerous
Trend in Arts
NEW YORK VP) -- Symphony
Conductor Leopold Stokowski tes-
tified yest.erday the future of the
nation's 'arts is "in great danger."
Performing ' artists must have
two professions-music and some-
thing else-to make financial ends
meet, he -said.
The conductor of the Houston
Symphony told a congressional
subcommittee opening a hearing
into the economic situation of the
performing arts:
"Al operas today are under-
rehearsed and not well prepared
we are having quantity in-
stead of quality. We'll have to
have quality now because compe-
tition in the Iron Curtamn coun-
tries is so great."
Stokowski added: "The Soviet
sends over the best ballets and
operas and gives attention to the.
fine arts. They realize the impor-
tance of the fine arts.

"The performing artists (in this
country) have great difficulties
because of inflation."
Stokowski suggested some form
of legislation that would make
each state responsible for the fine
arts within its borders.
Federal, state or local aid was
suggested to promote the fine arts.

Hom1er Survives Trnsplanting ofun
The dog that bounded down the corridor towards his keepers
seemed like any other dog; but actually he receives much better
tr eatment than most.
Homer, a droopy-eared hound, has his own veterinarian, his own
r egistered nurse, and his own physician. These special benefits are
bestowed upon him because he's alive and breathing.
This may not seem unusual, but he's doing it with another dog's
lung. The transplant was made five months ago and, under special
treatment, Homer survived longer than the usual three weeks.
The 'Good Life'
In reality, his life at the Kresge Research Building is probably
the best he has had. Described by one person as "-just a mongrel dog,"
Homer came from a dog pound in the thumb area of Michigan.
All dogs must be healthy when they begin participation in medi-
cal research and are kept healthy during the tests, his. veterinarian
added. Paulette S. Szadaly, who is responsible for the health of all
research animals in the center, added that it is often difficult to
