Cites Policy
"What is needed in these dan-
gerous times is the conscious rec-
ognition, both by ourselves and
the rest of the world, that the age
of power policy is over forever,"
Prof. Eugene Rabinowich, edito$r
of the Bulletin of Atomic Scien-
tists, said yesterday in the Mich-
igan Union Ballroom.
As keynote speaker at the Chal-
lenge Colloquium, Prof. Rabinow-
ich, who is also a biophysicist at
the University of Illinois, explain-
ed thtte primary purpose of
the national state today is the
furthering of a country's "na-
tional~~ ineet.

I shudder because this has been
the attitude towards the state in
the past, and it means that peo-

Humanity's Interestv
What is needed today is not the
furthering of the interests of the
national state but the furthering
of humanity's interests as an in-
ternational community, he declar-
ed- . C
"Some might think that this is
an idealistic dream, as individ-
uals usually look out for their own
interests and nations emulate
them in this. '
"However in addition to pur-
suing egotistical interests, indi-
viduals also pursue the interests
of the groups and nations to which
they belong. When the individual
interests come into conflict with
those of the nation it is the per-
sonal interests which give way."

terests of a single nation should

"No matter how strong a case
each side can make for its side, if
the interest of one nation is
against the interests of another,
then both interests must be put

Congo Plan
ing Secretary-General U Thant
promised yesterday to produce a
new United Nations plan-prob-
ably next week-to deal with re-
bellious elements in the Congo.
He disclosed this at his first
news conference since taking over
Nov. 3. He also described Presi-
dent Moise Tshombe of secessionist
Katanga province as "a very un-
stable man."
For Negotiation
Tshombe is the leader with
whom the UN or the Central
Congolese government must ne-
gotiate if a successful end to the
secession is to be achieved peace-
He was commenting on Tshom-
be's charge in Elisabethville yes-
terday that United Nations of-
ficials George Ivan Smith and
Brian Urquhart provoked the Ka-
tangese paratroopers that beat
them by driving around and
around the house of their com-
mander, Gen. Norbert Muke.
Gives Reason
Tshombe, noting that the beat-
ing Tuesday night occurred dur-
ing a party for Sen. Thomas J.
Dodd (D-Conn) said it was pro-
voked to make that American
"friend of Katanga" think the
place was peopled by savages.
Meanwhile, United "Nations

ficial. whose recall Tshombe has
demanded was going home because
his government wanted him back.

Hannah Comments
"All four schools have made this
request," Hannah said, "and I
personally see no reason why they
won't get it."
The ' education committee is
currently holding hearings around
the state; they will continue to-
day in Houghton, home of Mich-

Thursday AFL-CIO President
August Scholle urged the crea-
tion of a central coordinating
council for higher education, but
college and university officials
were cool to the suggestion.
Same Proposal
"This is essentially the same
proposal that Gov. (John B.)
Swainson presented to the Legis-
lature in January," he said. "For
a number of years some legisla-
tors have insisted upon this, but it
is the unanimous feeling among
the various institutions that we
would rather have voluntary co-
Hannah added that such a com-
mittee would have no effect on
the universities with constitution-
al status unless they voluntarily
elected to participate on the co-
ordinating council.
Could Ignore Board
Thus if all schools were grant-
ed constitutional status, the co-
ordinating board could be ignored
unless a provision for it were spe-
cifically written into the consti-
tution and made binding on the
various institutions.
In his testimony before the
committee, Hardin recommended
that each of the new boards be
appointed by the governor for a
six-year term and confirmed by
the Senate.

Rusk Notes
Trade Policy
WASHINGTON (AP)- Secretary
of State Dean Rusk said yesterday1
United States foreign aid and for-
eign trade policies should work for
the same aims.7
Describing aid as a "junior part-
ner" of trade policies, he said it
would make "no sense to ask the
taxpayer to contribute to foreign
aid if we adopted trade policies
which would frustrate the aims of1
our foreign aid programs."i
He noted that next year will1
bring what he called a great debate
on United States trade policy. The1
reciprocal trade law expires nexti
year and congress is expected toi
be asked to extend and broaden
the program.
Rusk addressed the NationalI
Conference on International Eco- I
nomic and Social Development, a1
workshop of nongovernmental or-
ganizations supporting the admin-
.stration's foreign aid program.
Rusk saw a need for both bi-
ateral aid-direct United States1
grants and. loans to individual
countries - and multilateral aid1
such as joint efforts through the1
United Nations.
"The debate between the two I
methods is pointless and fruitless,"t
he said, "because both have to beN
used to their full capacity." r

U.S. Views
Stevenson Claims
Move Would Damage
World Confidence
ing in the United Nations Gen-
eral Assembly yesterday, Valer-
ian A. Zorin, Soviet deputy for-
eign minister, called for immedi-
ate seating of Communist China
and demanded the expulsion of
the Chinese Nationalists.
Following Zorin's address, Ad-
lai E. Stevenson, chief United
States delegate, denounced Com-
munist China as a reckless, bru-
tal power threatening perhaps the
very survival of mankind. He de-
clared that to seat Peiping in the
UN could shake world confidence
in the organization.
Upholds Right
Zorin upheld Peiping's right to
crush the Nationalist regime on
Taiwan by military might.
The two big powers clashed on
the opening day of a historic de-
bate on the Chinese representa-
tion issue-.
In a gesture of contempt, the
entire Soviet Bloc walked out of
the crowded blue and gold As-
sembly hall when Tingfu T. Tsi-
ang, veteran Chinese Nationalist
diplomat, took the rostrum.
Stevenson accused the Chinese
Communists of operating training
camps for young guerrillas from
Asia, Africa and Latin..America
so they can spark revolutions in
their homeland by sabotage and
Would Signify Approval
He said that expulsion of the
Chinese Nationalists would be
taken by Peiping as signifying
UN approval to launch an attack
on Formosa that would be "as
massive a resort to arms as the
world has witnessed since the end
of World War II"
"In its present mood," said
Stevenson of the Peiping regime,
"it is a massive and brutal threat
to man's struggle to better his lot
in his own way-and even, per-
haps, to man's very survival. Its
gigantic power, its reckless am-
bition, and its unconcern for hu-
man values, make it the majorj
world problem."
Warning that the "whole future1
of the United Nations is at stake,",,
he gave four principal reasons for
barring the door to the Peiping
Complete Supportl
Zorin told the Assembly ther
Chinese Communists had the com-t
plete support of the entire Com-
munist world.1
"The government of the People'sf
Republic of China has the right toc
bring liquidation of the Chiang
Kai-Shek clique to an end bothl
by peaceful means and with thel
use of armed force, and that ist
within its exclusive competencet
and nobody else's," Zorin asserted.

Viet Nam Crisis Too Grave
To Call. Ambassador Home
WASHINGTON MP)-United States officials said yesterday the
situation in Communist-menaced South Viet Nam is too delicate for
the United States to consider calling home Ambassador Frederick E.
Nolting, Jr. for consultations at present.
There have been published reports that Nolting may be summon-
ed temporarily if talks fail to bring reforms in the South Viet Nam
government. Apparently some United States officials fear these re-
ports may have an adverse effect

May Raise
Bank Rates
WASHINGTON (A') - The na-
tion's banks were authorized last
night to pay up to four per cent
interest on some savings deposits.
Announced reasons for the move
were to "increase freedom of com-
petition" and help the country's
balance of payments situation.
The 4 per cent maximum will
be effective Jan. 1 on all savings
and time deposits left in the banks
for one year or more. For the
past five years, the maximum had
been three per cent.
The action was announced
jointly by the Federal Reserve
Board and the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corp. It will apply; to
more than 13,000 banks within
the jurisdiction of those agencies.
In a statement explaining its
move. the Reserve Board said the
four per cent rate would permit
commercial banks to compete
more effectively for savings de-
posits. They will now be in a
position to match, in some cases.

'Of A-Shelters

gon's Civil Defense chief urged
everybody who can today to go
ahead and build fallout shelters.
Steuart L. Pittman, Assistant
Secretary of Defense for Civil De-
fense, announced the start of a
nationwide survey to tag the
