judicial system, place final veto power over Council action with the

RIDE-An Atlas rocket is scheduled to take an ape named Enos
on a three-orbit trip around the Earth today. If the flight is
successful, a man will probably make a similar trip early next year.

CAPE CANAVERAL ({P)-An adolescent ape named Enos will
pioneer the space trail today, if, all goes well, for a United States
astronaut to follow.'
Whether the United States will go all out to place an astronaut
in orbit before the year's end will depend on the success of the chim-
panzee shot, now scheduled for some time between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m.

Pearson Says
Walker Silent
On Editorial
Gen. Edwin A. Walker, who re-
cently invoked the military equiva-
lent of the Fifth Amendment, will
not have to testify before a Senate
committee this week on political
activities of the military.
Columnist Drew Pearson re-
ported yesterday two developments
in the Walker controversy.
Sen. Strom Thurmond of South
Carolina has maneuvered so that
General Walker will not have. to

ices Committee's pending investi-
gation of troop indoctrination pro-

mittee "suddenly were called off

Pearson also reported details of
how Gen. Walker stood on Article

by the Army Inspector General's

son may be compelled by his
superior in the armed forces "to

OSA Group
,Studies Role
Of Judiciary
The Office of Student Affairs
Study Committee yesterday scruti-
nized the nature, sources and role
of campus judiciary bodies, Prof.
John W. Reed of the law school,
committee chairman said.
The 90-minute discussion
touched on many topics including
student participation in rule for-
mation and enforcement, whether
or not counseling should be
stressed over judicial action and
the lines of authority governing
student conduct.
Following a pattern -the com-
mittee has been regularly using,
a subcommittee presented a fac-
tual study of the judicial units
before the discussion.
It traced the development of
the bodies and their derivation of
power through the Regents bylaws.
Prof. Reed said the committee
is willing to meet with representa-
tives from the Alumnae Council to
hear their request for the reten-
tion of the dean of women's posi-
tion in a revised OSA structure.
The women's branch of the Alum-
ni Association voted to ask main-
tenance of the office at its national
meeting in September.

Board of Regents and lift rulings
that students live in University
housing or residence hals.
Expresses Disapproval
In expressing disapproval of the
recent decision of the Board of
Governors regarding permission
for women to visit men in their
rooms in the quadrangles, the mo-
tion states although under the
present provisions the control rests
with the Board of Governors,
"these rules should be set and
enforced by all members of the
community, and only by members
of the community, either directly
or through democratically elected
representative governments."
Revision of the Council plan to
place veto power over Council ac-
tion with tho Regents (a power
which could be delegated by them
to the President of the University)
provides a formal veto procedure,
and would be incorporated into
the Regents Bylaws as Bylaw 8.03.
The proposed revision of Bylaw
8.04 regarding student conduct
provides a student bill of rights,
stating that only the Regents or
SGC may establish rules governing
students. It places judiciary power
with the Council which may dele-
gate authority to bodies estab-
lished by and responsible to SGC.
Set Deadlines
Other business which the Coun-
cil will consider includes a motion
by Council President Richard Nohl,
'62BAd, to establish a Jan. 17
deadline for the submission of
sorority and fraternity member-
ship statements to the Vice-Presi-
dent for Student Affairs.
The Council will also discuss the
direct campus - wide election of
delegates to National Student As-
sociation Congress, and the motion
submitted by, former member
David Croysdale, '63, stating that
expression of opinion by SGC
should be limited to issues that
directly affect the student during
his tehure on campus.
Peace Course
Two motions will be submitted
by Robert Ross, '63, and Sharon
Jeffrey, '63. The first asks that the
Council support the petition cir-
culated by the Americans Com-
mitted to World Responsibility to
establish an interdisciplinary un-
dergraduate credit course on
"Problems of Peace and the Nu-
clear Age."
The other motion supports vot-
ing rights for 18-year-olds and
mandates the SGC executive offi-
cers to communicate with the
Constitutional Convention dele-
gates to secure an opportunity to
send a representative to voice
Council opinion.
SGC will also consider a motion
from the Committee on Student
Concerns recommending that Sen-
ator Stanley Thayer (R-Ann Ar-
bor) be invited to the next Council
meeting to discuss problems in
legislative appropriations and pos-
sible roles that students could
take in influencing them.
A motion by Ross that the Com-
mittee on the University investi-
gate orientation programs which
would more fully indicate the edu-
cational nature of the University
and consideration of a discussion
period which could be incorporated
into meetings will also be on the
Council agenda.

U.S., Soviets
Renew Talks
On Test Ban
Face Problems Again
After Extended Break
United States and the Soviet Un-
ion opened a new round of private
talks yesterday aimed at breaking
the 17-months-old deadlock on
resumption of disarmament nego-
Adlai E. Stevenson and Valerian
A. Zorin, the chief delegates of the
United States and the Soviet
Union, conferred for an hour and:
40 minutes in Zorin's UN office.
A United States spokesman said
he could not comment on whether
any progress was made, but added
that more meetings were likely
next week.
Meeting Follows Approval
The Stevenson-Zorin meeting
followed last week's approval in
the UN main political committee
of an Indian resolution urging the
two big powers to resume nego-
tiations without delay.
It asked them to report back
to the General Assembly before
the end of the current session.
Expect Long Session
Target date for adjournment is
still Dec. 20, but most delegates
expect the Assembly to spill over
into the early months of next year
after a Christmas recess.
Arrangements for renewal of
United States-Soviet talks were
under way before the political
committee adopted the Indian
Both powers have agreed on
general principles to guide dis-
armament negotiations, but have
not been able to concur on the

Clause Waiver
Position Cited
By President
The Sigma Nu local at the Uni-
versity has not yet applied for a
waiver from the bias clause in the
fraternity's national constitution,
chapter president James Apple,
'63E, said last night.
Whether or not it will apply
depends in part upon a meeting
today with the Student Govern-
ment Council Committee on Mem-
bership Selection in Student Or-
Theinational clause bans men
"of Negroid blood" from member-
ship in the fraternity. Apple also
indicated that the local has no
intention of disaffiliating from
the national.
However, a University bylaw
prohibits student organizations
from restricting membership on
the basis of race, religion, creed
or national origin.
Apple said that he and the com-
mittee have met several times to
discuss the dilemma faced by Sig-
ma Nu and "are fairly close to a
However, committee chairman
Jesse McCorry, Grad, commented
that in his opinion the commit-
tee and Apple had not come close
to a solution to the problem in
their previous meetings.
Apple also remarked that there
has been little pressure from the
national to defend the clause. A
chapter president at Cornell Uni-
versity, in a similar situation, had
cited numerous visits and letters

from national officials urging
such a stand by the local.

Needler Labels Strike
N.ormal Political Move
"The current general strike in the Dominican Republic is just
a normal political technique; if it succeeds, the result will be a stable
government for that country," Martin C. Needler of the political-
science department said last night.
This strike, the first of its kind in 31 years, is directed against the
government of President Joaquin Balaguer, a holdover from the Tru-
jillo era. Thousands of Dominicans

On Controls
Opposing Positions
May Cause Failure
Of Bomb Treaty
GENEVA (P) - The United
States and Britain yesterday re-
jected as completely unacceptable
a new Soviet proposal for an un-
controlled nuclear test ban.
United States delegate Arthur
Dean declared the Soviet motto
"seems to be 'let's all join Atomics
Anonymous until the Soviet Union
wants to fall off the no-test wa
gon and test again.'
Soviet delegate Semyon K.
Tsarapkin declared that Russia
is no longer prepared to accept
any kind of international control
for a nuclear test ban.
Stalemate Develops
Thus a stalemate over the old
issue of controls developed at the
three powers' first session in 2/
The.talks were recessed in Sep-
tember when' the Soviet Union
broke a voluntary three-power
moratorium by resuming tests.
The firm positions of the West
and the Soviet Union seemed to
put a final seal of failure of the
three nations to draft a test ban
treaty. But neither side toos any
immediate initiative for breaking
off the talks. They agreed to meet
again today.
Resume Talks
The three delegations resumed
their three-year-old talks at the
request of an overwhelming ma-
jority of the United Nations Gen-
eral Assembly.
Acting UN Secretary-General V
Thant, in a message to the con-
ference, said "the achievement of
a ban on nuclear weapons tes-,.
under international control will
represent a significant forward
step in the realization of the goals
for which the UN was established."
Immediately after British Min-
ister of State Joseph Godber,
chairman for the day, had read U
Thant's message, Tsarapkin for-
mally submitted the new Soviet

Meet in Detroit
Michigan's educational leaders
were non-committal yesterday fol-
lowing a morning meeting of the
State Council of College Presidents.
Executive Secretary Merritt M.
Chambers reported that the coun-
cil discussed capital outlay needs,
fees and constitutional provisions
for the state universities.
Meanwhile Sen. Carleton H.
Morris (R-Kalamazoo) raised the
possibility of resurrecting one or
more of the five "nuisance .taxes"
as a means of financing the an-
ticipated request for educational

The other change allows the

down nearly every business in the
Needler explained, "Balaguer
seems willing to "democratize" his
country gradually. But since both
this country and the Organization
of American States are satisfied
merely to be rid of the Trujillo
clan, he is under no pressure to
bring about immediate reforms.
Therefore it would seem to be best
to make a clean break with the
Trujillo regime and start over
again with a new government."
Ruling Junta
Balaguer's opposition wants to
form a provisional ruling junta
which reportedly would be headed
by the leader of the National Civic
Union, Viriato A. Fiallo.
"This government would set up
conditions for a new political sys-
tem-free elections and new poli-
tical parties," says Needler. "It
would also prosecute some of the
worst offenders from the old Tru-
jillo regime."
No Trouble
Needler forsees no trouble with
Communism in a new government.
"It would be threatened contin-
ually by violence from both ex-
treme left and extreme right--
Castro in Cuba and the Trujillo
family in exile-but the majority
of the people favor a liberal and
democratic government," he ex-

Debate Views Red Chinese in UN

Madden Cites YAF's Growth

This question, soon to occupy
the UN itself, was the topic of a
debate between Roger Seasonwein,

at a meeting of the Young Repub-

Madden, opposing Red China's
admission, cited the danger to the
other nations of Southeast Asia.

the record of other satellite na-

Also to be considered are the
"bloodthirsty" aggressive acts of

years, and its threat to "take over
all of Southeast Asia." Madden

many possible disadvantages" to
