ment in principle had been reach-
ed for a three-member federal

the new revolutionary regimes of
Syria and Iraq were in Cairo for
talks with UAR President Gamal
Abdel Nasser.
Socialist State
=Maj. Gen. Atassi told the na-
tion in a broadcast the movement
will "expand until it becomes the
great Arab socialist state, and it
becomes one of the great powers of
this earth."
Atassi's statement and the dis-
patch of a Syrian delegation to
Cairo indicated that the new Syr-
Ian cabinet, meeting for four days
to draft future policy, has finally
reached agreement.
' Damascus radio said the mixed
military and civilian delegation
will work out details of the union
as soon as possible.
The announcement of a union
as soon as possible is regarded
here as a compromise between the
staunch Syrian pro-Nasser factions'
and the Iraq-Syrian Ba'ath party
alliance that advocates Arab unity
in more general terms.
The Syrian Nasserites are re-
ported- to be pressing for imme-
diate resurrection of the Syrian-
Egyptian merger as the UiAR,
which broke, up September, 1961.
The Ba'athists were reported to
be advocating a gradual federa-
tion of the three countries.
The union poses a sharp threat
to Jordan and Saudi Arabia. It
is bound to give a boost to pro-
union forces in Jordan, squeezed
between Syria and Iraq. Jordanian

the target of violent attacks by
the propaganda machine of Nas-

tant to rush back into union with.
Syria or to unite with Iraq with-
out careful preparation.
While the revolt leaders in
Baghdad and Damascus have been
issuing emotional statements in-
dicating unity was just around the
corner, the atmosphere in Cairo
has been notably calmer.
French Unions
Start Striking
PARIS (AP)-French railroad un-
ions yesterday called a 24-hour
nationwide strike as optimism
spread among coal miners that
they are winning their 14-day
strike for better wages and hours.

The rail unions scheduled the
strike to begin today. Trains en
route at the deadline were in-
structed to continue to the next
station and halt. The railroad
strike was called by the same un-
ion organizations which represent
the striking coal and iron miners.

Argentina Places
Forces On Alert
By The Associated Press
BUENOS AIRES-Argentina's armed forces went on full-scale
alert yesterday, and the divided government debated its course in the
face of a new Peronist bid for power.
A Vatican decision lifting excommunication against Argentinian
ex-dictator Juan D. Peron, now in exile in Madrid raised hopes of his
follewsr girding for a comeback in June elections.
Alarmed at signs of Peronist resurgence, military leaders ordered
the full-dress alert, and federal police took security measures at key
installations which were lifted"

Take Step
In Battle
CHICAGO (AP)-Union and man-
agement negotiators looked to
Washington yesterday for the next
movein the stalematedwork rules
battle between the nation's rail-
roads and about 200,000 workers.
Some action by President John
F. Kennedy or Labor Secretary
Willard Wirtz to get the sides back
to the bargaining table and avert
a possible national railroad strike
was regarded as a certainty.
The latest efforts to reach agree-
ment on the nearly four-year-old

appoint an emergency board to in-

recommendations for a settlement.
Appointment of such a board
would forestall a strike-if one is
called-for at least 60 days.
The carriers propose sweeping
overhaul of work, rules, termed
featherbedding by the railroads,
which they say have cost them
$600 million a year.
Some 65,000 jobs are at stake,
including those of 40,000 firemen;
which the railroads say are un-
necessary for the operation of
modern rail equipment.

Publishers Warn House
Of Constitutional Danger
WASHINGTON (MP-The general manager of the American News-
paper Publishers Association said yesterday Congress would be "skat-
ing on thin ice constitutionally" in any move to force an increase in
"the number and variety of 'voices' in the newspaper field.
Stanford Smith and other officials of the publishers' organiza-
tion went before a House anti-trust subcommittee with a mass of
testimony and a 189-page legal brief. Officials of the ANPA urged that
the inquiry be broadened to include the "power and practices" of labor

Exclusive Rights
Under the franchise system, au-
thorized dealers are granted exclu-
sive rights to sell products in their
territory. When car sales were
slow, certain dealers wholesaled
cars to discount houses, which,
sold them at prices under those of
franchised dealers.
The government contended that
to put a stop to this practice GM
and dealers associations secretly
agreed to pressure offending deal-
ers into stopping the practice.
Free Enterprise
Judge Clarke said he agreed with
the Justice Department that con-
sumers must be protected, but said
the rights of industry under the
free enterprise system must be
protected also.
"The present franchise system
between General Motors and their
dealers is hereby upheld," the
judge announced.
A spokesman at GM headquar-
ters in Detroit said the company
is making no comment on the
judge's action.
The case began Oct. 12, 1961,
when a federal grand jury indict-
ed General Motors, three south-
ern California car dealer associa-
tions and various individuals.
Surprise Move
Sends Dog Bill
To House Floor
LANSING--The House State Af-
fairs Committee introduced into
the House yesterday a proposal to
legalize dog racing in Michigan.
The surprise move was made
after the committee reluctantly
reported out a bill providing that
an increase in the state's take
from horse race betting be used
to underwrite stadium bonds.
"As long as they want racing,
we'll give it to them," committee
chairman Lloyd Gibbs (R-Port-
land) said, following a successful
fight by Gov. George Romney and
Republican leaders to pry the fi-
nancing bill from the committee.
The proposal would set up a
schedule of meetings under a state
commission similar to the one that
oversees horse racing. It was indi-
cated that the bill would be turned
over to the House Ways and Means
Committee before it could be
brought to a vote.

Mounting Anxiety
The military, professed oppon-
ents of any Peronist revival, had
shown mounting anxiety following
an electoral court ruling that cer-
tified a Peronist front party, Un-
ion Popular, for the nationwide
elections June 23.
The navy vowed that "the era
of dictatorship can never return."
Naval forces were reported in a
state of "battle readiness."

President Jose Maria Guido's gov-

United States.
S'Informants said that Ongania
might determine the course of

Proper Scope
The association's presentation
touched off a dispute with sub-
committee members about the
proper scope of the House inquiry
into concentration of ownership
in the newspaper field.
Chairman Emmanuel Celler (D-
NY) said the ANPA arguments in-
dicated the organization objects
to the whole inquiry.
Smith said the publishers' asso-
ciation "raises no question as to
the authority of this subcommittee
to inquire into general newspaper
business practices."
Legal Brief
The ANPA's legal brief was pre-
pared by Arthur B. Hanson, the
ANPA general counsel, and spe-
cial counsel Prof. S. Chesterfield
Oppenheim of the Law School.
They contended that "one basic
barrier to any drastic application
of anti-trust policy to newspapers
is the First Amendment's consti-
tutional safeguard. In sum, this
guarantee of freedom of the press
precludes governmental interfer-
ence with the functions of the
press which go beyond the - mere
business practices topwhich the
anti-trust laws may properly be
Prof. Oppenheim said "there is
no question' about the jurisdiction
of this subcommittee to investi-
gate the practices of the newspa-

gers "could raise a constitutional

Today let us examine that much maligned, widely misuoder-.
stood, grossly overworked, wholly dedicated campus figure-
the dean.
The dean (from the Latin Deanere-to expel) is not, as many
think, primarily a disciplinary officer. He is a counselor and
glide, a haven and refuge for the troubled student. The dean
(from the Greek Deanos-to skewer) is characterized chiefly by
sympathy, wisdom, patience, forbearance, and a fondness for
homely pleasures like community singing, farina, spelldowns,
and Marlboro Cigarettes. The dean (from the German Deange-
macht-to poop a party) is fond of Marlboros for the same
reason that all men of good will are fond of Marlboros-because
Marlboro is an honest cigarette. Those good Marlboro tobaccos
are honestly good, honestly aged to the peak of perfection,'hon-
estly blended for the best of all possible flavors. Marlboro
honestly comes in two different containers-a soft pack which
is honestly soft and a Flip-Top box which honestly flips. You
too will flip when next you try an honest Marlboro, which, one
honestly hopes, will be soon.

But I digress. We were learning how a dean helps poor,
troubled undergraduates. To illustrate, let us take a typical
case from the files of Dean 3'i......of the University of Y.
(Oh, why be so mysterious? The dean's name is Sigafoos and
the University is Yutah.)
Wise, kindly Dean Sigafoos was visited one day by a fresh-
man named Walter Aguincourt who came to ask permission to
marry one Emma Blenheim, his dormitory laundress. To the
dean the marriage seemed ill-advised, for Walter was only 18
years old and Emma was 91. Walter agreed with the dean, but
said he felt obligated to go through with it because Emma had
invested her life savings in a transparent rainhood to protect
her from the mist at Niagara Falls, where they planned to spend
their honeymoon. If Walter called off the wedding, what use
would the poor woman possibly have for a rainhood in Yutah?
The wise, kindly dean pondered briefly and came up with a
brilliant answer: let Walter punch holes in the back of Emma's
steam iron. With steam billowing back at the old lady, she
would find a rainhood very useful-possibly even essential.
Whimpering with gratitude, Walter kissed the dean's Phi
Beta Kappa key and hastened away to follow his advice-and
the results, I am pleased to report, were madly successful i
Today Emma is a happy woman-singing lustily, wearing
her rainhood, eating soft-center chocolates, and ironing clothes
-twice as happy, to be candid, than if she had married Walter
... And what of Walter? He is happy too. Freed from his un-
wanted liaison with Fmma, he married a girl much nearer his
own age-Agnes Yucca, 72. Walter is now-the proud father-
