Legislators
Aprove Bill
For jobless
WASHINGTON (A') - Legisla-
tion providing for an emergency
extension of unemployment bene-
fits passed the House yesterday
and headed for quick action in
the Senate.
The House passed the bill by a
roll call vote of 361-31.
President John F. Kennedy
placed the bill at the top of his
list of -emergency measures to
deal' with the recession.
It provides that 15 days after
enactment, which would be when
the :President signs the bill, ex-
tra unemployment checksn would
start going out to persons who
have been out of work so long
they have exhausted .their pres-
ent benefits.
Means Extra Benefits
Labor Department officials said;
the measure means nearly $1 bil-
lion in extra benefits to as many
as three million jobless during the
two-year life of the program. The
two years start with last July 1.
Duration of the extra benefits
would vary in, the different' states,
but could run for a maximum of
13 weeks.
In its final form, the bill was
a compromise of slightly differ-
ing versions passed previously by
the House and Senate.
One conflicting point was the
starting date of a four-tenths of
1 per cent payroll tax increase in-
tended to pay for the extra bene-
fits. The Senate originally voted
to start the tax Jan. 1, but ad-
ministration forces won a move
to make the date next Jan. 1.
Runs Two Years
The tax increase also would run
for two years.
Under the bill, the federal gov-
ernment would advance money to
the states to start the program,
and would be reimbursed. later
from proceeds of the tax increase.
in another facet of the same
problen, Kennedy asked Cohgress
to appropriate $54 million to fi-
nance extended compensation for
unemployed railroad workers and
for aid to dependent children of
jobless parents. -
The President asked $24 million
for idle railroad workers, and $30
million for . public assistance
grants to states to finance the
first three months of an emer-
gency program of aid to the chil-
dren of uneniployed parents.
The money is for the fiscal year
which ends June 30.

Interests
h we have common interests and
gth* we can alleviate unreasonable
duplication and also serve the
students better, as in the case of
allowing students to take courses
for credit from either .school,"
President for Academic Adminis-
tration, said.
(The WSU Board of Governors
and the Regents last week passed
resolutions permitting students to
take courses at either university,
particularly in specialized areas
and graduate work.)
The comnmittee will study all
phases of the educational pro-
grams of the two universities, in-
cluding present programs and pro-
posed extensions of programs now
under consideration, in order to
bring about closer coordination,
the two presidents said.
"This is a very constructive
step," President Hatcher said.
"Much of our need is in graduate

very expensive to maintain.
Secure Programs
"Over the last several years we

cure 'future programs," he said.
Vice-President Niehuss said
that some of the areas discussed

ministration, approaches to city
and regional planning, and joint
library projects and storage li-
braries.

GLABERMAN: Ogar Protests
Marxist Calls CIO Methods Stalinist Late Accounts

"'4

By HARVEY MOLOTCH
The CIO of today is a one-party
state which maintains discipline
of workers in much the same way
as the Stalinist; system,. Marxist
Martin Glaberman, managing edi-
tor of the Detroit newspaper Cor-
respondent, said last night.
What was originally a demo-
cratic organization with a goal of
securing control over production
by the worker, has degenerated
into a professional ruling class
which, although idealistic and
well-meaning, tries to tell the
worker what is best for him, the
factory worker-journalist said.
"The saving feature is that
American organized labor is not a
state and thus lacks the power
which would allow it to transform
American society into a system
resembling Soviet Communism,"
Glaberman said.
Labor Bureaucracy
"Stalinism is merely a form of
labor bureaucracy which corres-
ponds to a period when mediation
between capital and labor is
crushed. Labor is no longer a me-
diator, and instead runs capitalism
in its own name."
The Stalinist system was codi-
fied by Stalin in the 1936 Soviet

defined as "classless," but never-,
theless possessed two distinct
groups-workers and intelligent-
sia.
Russian Intelligentsia
"Intelligentsia is a Russian word
for capitalists," Glaberman said.
The American counterpart of
the Russian professional ruling
group is composed of the union
leaders, the capitalist and the gov-
ernment. As an example of how
the three groups work together,
the Detroit editor cited a "typical
Lost Bicycles
Available Now
Those who have lost a bicycle
in the last 90 days and have not
checked the bicycles impounded
by the University are asked to do
so between 4 and 6 p.m. today at
Rm. 1015 of the Administration
Bldg.

technique" used, to increase pro-
duction at the expense of the
worker:
When an attempt is made to
establish new work rules, the work-
ers wage a "wildcat" strike - a
strike against the capitalist and
also against their union. The capi-
talist arbitrarily fixes any 10 work-
ers for "leading" the strike. The
union comes to the rescue, de-
manding the return of the dis-
missed workers, and within the
"big hulabaloo" which results, the
government steps in to mediate.
Union 'Victorious'
The union is 'victorious' and the
capitalist "loses" because the fired
workers are returned to the assem-
bly line. But meanwhile the entire
issue which caused the strike is
lost, and the worker returns to the
production method which the cap-
italist originally demanded.
Glaberman drew an analogy be-
tween the American "wildcats"
and the latest "milestone" of so-
cialism, the Hungarian Revolution.
The brief socialistic state which
was established arose from a mass
upheaval among workers against
their totalitarian bureaucratic op-
pressors.

The election of two successful
Student Government Council can-
didates was protested last night
by Richard Ogar, '63.
Ogar had taken out SGC peti-
tions during the campaign, but
failed to turn them in.
Less than two hours after all
eight open seats had been filled,
Ogar charged that two of the win-
ners, William Gleason, '63, and
Per Hanson, '62, had not filed
their statements of campaign ex-
penditures by the stipulated time,
5 p.m. Monday.
He protested that losing candi-
dates Mark Hall. '63, M. A. Hyder
Shah, Grad, and John Curry, '63E,
along with Gleason and Hanson,
should not have had their names
on the ballot because of the viola-
tion.
Ogar said he knew-of the viola-
tion Monday night and assumed
the names would be withdrawn. "I
noticed when I voted Tuesday that
the names were still on. I didn't
know the proper channel for pro,-
test until tonight, though. Be-
sides, I wanted to see how the
election came out," he added.
The case will come before the
SGC Credentials and Rules Com-
mittee at 5. p.m. today. Members
of the committee are retiring
Council President John Feldkamp,
'61, Mary Wheeler, '62, Philip
Power, Spec, James Hadley, '62,
RichardNohl, '62BAd, and Den-
nis 'Shafer, '63.
Feldkamp said that in the past,
the committee has not held strict-
ly to the deadline for filing of
financial statements. All of the
late reports except Hall's were
turned in late Monday night. "In
former elections, we've had state-
ments coming in at count night.
The committee might be strict
this time, but I think they would
want more of a case before inval-
idating any part of the election,"
Feldkamp commented.
The committee will report on
the incident at Friday's special
Council meeting for the seating of
new members. Final authority for
seating new members rests with
the present Council members.

SIDELIGHTS EASE TENSION:
Write-Ins Enhance Election Night

Richard Ogar, '63, Wilbur Gur-
ley, Andrew Agifuchie and Ted
Bomb, former Acacia dog, all re-
ceived write-in votes in the Stu-
dent Government Council elections
last night.
Ogar took out a petition, but
never turned it in. Bomb ran in
the SGC election two years ago
and received fifty votes. He lived
at the fraternity until last year
and now lives in Ann Arbor. "If
this is a mandate to bring him
back to campus we'll be glad to
oblige," Dan Barr, '61, said.
Lawrence Libit, '63, got twenty-
eight votes; Fileri Dikeman, '61,
got eight. Both returned their pe-
titions but dropped out in the
middle of the race.
