Cohen Gets
President John F. Kennedy's
nomination of Prof. Wilber J. Co-
hen of the School of Social Work
to the post of Assistant Secretary
of Health, Education and Welfare
was 'approved by the Senate Fi-
nance Committee yesterday..
Prof. Cohen is one of the origi-
nal architects of the United States
Social Security Act and is des-
cribed by Dean Fedele F. Fauri of
the School of Social Work as "the
most able and capable man in the
social securities field."
Speaking before the committee
Thursday, Prof. Cohen predicted'
that by 1970 social security bene-
fits will rise 50 per cent. However,
he said "people must realize that
if they want all those benefits,
they have to pay the costs."
Women Accuses
During the meeting, Prof. Cohen
was accused of belonging to three
Communist-front organiz..tions by
Mrs. Marjorie Shearon who said
she was appearing on behalf of
"The Coalition of Patriotic Socie-
ties of Ohio, Inc."
She charged that Prof. Cohen is
part of a "conspiracy" aimed at
nationalizing medicine in the
United States. She said he should
never be appointed because of
"moral turpitude and subversion."
Prof. Cohen denied her charges
and said he had been cleared five
times by loyalty boards. No mem-
ber of the committee appeared to
support the women's accusations.
'U' Investigated
In 1955 Mrs. Shearon sought to
block his appointment to the Uni
versity. Marvin L. Niehuss, Vice-
President and Dean of Faculties
said the University had made an
investigation at that time and
had found no grounds for her ac-
cusations. "The University Indicat-
ed its confidence in Prof. Cohen
by its ap ointment," he said.
Patrick V. McNamara (D-Mich)
remained at Prof. Cohen's side
throughout the two hours that he
was questioned.
China Walks
Out of Talks
NEW DELHI (P) - The Red
China delegation walked out of
the Communist-backed World
Council of Peace yesterday when
an Indian cabinet minister ac-
cused Red China of suppressions
in Tibet.
Humayan Kabir, minister for
cultural affairs and scientific de-
velopment, said at a cultural
meeting that just as the late In-
dian poet Rabindranath Tagore's
love for Japan did not preventI
him from crilecizing the Japa-
nese invasion of Manchuria, "the
great poet would undoubtedly
have regretted China's suppression
of Tibet's personality."
The Chinese delegation leader,
Liu Ning-i, said his delegation
was leaving because "while the
majority of Indian people want a
settlement with China some In-
dians are anxious to delay a solu-
tion and thus inherit the seeds of
British imperialisn."

Melvin Skolnik, '62, said last
night that his company will no
longer provide note-taking service
in courses where the prior permis-
sion of the instructor has not been
Skolnik agreed to discontinue
the practice after a conversation
with Associate Dean of the Liter-
ary School James Robertson. He
said that being a student he "had
no other choice" than to comply.
"It is the University interpreta-
tion of last semester's executive
council ruling that distribution of
notes on a mass scale by an organ-
ized company is not permitted
without the instructor's consent,"
Skolnik explained. He had previ-
ously maintained that such per-
mission should not be necessary
because his company charged
nothing for the notes. They were
given, free of additional charge,
to students paying for a similar
service in courses where permis-
sion had been obtained.
'Leverage' Applied
Skolnik said that his status as
a student gave the University lev-
erage with which to pressure him
into compliance. "If I were an out-
side party, however, I believe I
would test the right of the Uni-
versity to apply this ruling," he
In accordance with a suggestion
by Robertson, Skolnik intends to
send letters of apology to the five
instructors in whose classes the
unauthorized service was oper-
ating. He said he also intended
to write Prof. Carl Cohen of the
philosophy department, one of the
five to protest the latter's brand-
ing of note-takers as "cheats and
thieves, punishable as such."
"Prof. Cohen's remarks verge
on slander. I'm investigating to
see if I have a legal case," Skolnik
Violates Copyright
Robertson said that unauthor-
ized note-taking, whether for
profit or not, violated a professor's
rights under copyright laws. He
said that a complete brief of the
Skolnik matter was being pre-
pared for presentation to Dean of
the Literary School Roger Heyns
at the earliest possible date.

Pealy Seeking Top City Post,

candidates for Mayor of Ann

If Dorothee S. Pealy is elect-
ed Mayor of Ann Arbor on
April 3, it will be a remarkable
She is a Democratic candi-
date, and only two Democrats
have been mayor in the past
few decades.
She is a woman-the first;
woman to ever seek the post.
SJ4e is also a professional
scholar of municipal govern-
ment, and undoubtedly the
only candidate in the Midwest
this spring who wrote a doc-
toral dissertation on the char-
ter of the city in which the
election is held.
Impressive Credentials
Campaign literature on Mrs.
Pealy looks much. like an ap-
plication for a teaching job--
three political science degrees
from the University, a raft of
academic papers and 12 years
of directing research with such
groups as Citizens for Michi-
Intellectual background won't
hurt a candidate too much in
Ann Arbor, but Mrs. Pealy does
not emphasize this training.
She does have quite a bit to
say about the role of a woman
in politics, however.
As a wife and mpther of two
young children, she admits she
would not be a full-time may-

Mrs. Pealy's philosophy of
city government is that the
council should turn technical
matters over to the professional
career men in the departments.
"Council , should set guide-
lines within which the experts
operate, not legislate on every
matter. It should decide what
priorities are to be set up,
which groups are to be served."
Following this principle, she
criticized the council and may-
or for setting decisions on traf-
fic details in Ann Arbor, and

Battle Over,
On the role of a woman as
mayor, Mrs. Pealy said, "I think,
the battle for women's rights
is over. Respect in City Hall
depends on the Job done; the
other is an inconsequential
"I'm running not as a wom-
an, but as a person concerned
with problems the city faces."
This concern has been ex-'
pressed in a torrent of speeches
which began"'early in the year.
While the' wording of her
statements has been harsh, she
is not as. interested in hurling
vitriolic words at her opponent,
incumbent Cecil O. Creal, as.
she is in criticizing city police

or. Citing the city charter com-
mission's intent, she said that
the mayor should not run the
day-to-day business of the
city, but leave it up to the City
Administrator and the various
"Every citizen ought to be
able to run for mayor regard-
less of position. The fact that
I will be spending time with
my family is an irrelevant
question. Presumably if a can-
didate is able to fulfill the du-
ties of the office, hp or she is
entitled to be mayor."

More Aggressio_

Give Protest
At Kresge's
Main Office
Approximately 80 members of
the Ann Arbor Direct Action Com-
mittee and the Detroit branch of
the Congress of Racial Equality
(CORE) staged a two hour dem-
onstration yesterday in front of
the national headquarters of the
S. S. Kresge Corp. in Detroit.
Simultaneous protests at other
Kresge outlets occurred in New
York, Chicago, Boston, Cincinna-
ti, and Covington, Ky.
The picketing, sparking a drive
for 100 per cent integration of
Kresge lunchcounters, was held
while a delegation of CORE offi-
cials met with Arthur Fairbanks,
vice-president in charge of public
relations for the firm.
"Real progress in the comple-
tion of integration in the Kresge
chain seems to be in the making,"'
James Farmer, national director of
CORE, said.
Only three stores in the chain

regated lunchcounters.7

Also, many court justices come

However, he said it is. possible
to enlarge "step-by-step" the
court's jurisdiction, as long as it
is definitively specified and na-
tional interests are safeguarded.
Hence, the Connally reservation
might be removed, but other res-
ervations could still be necessary
for national protection.
Tondel, who chaired an Ameri-
can Bar Association.committee on
the subject, did not disagree that
some reservations might be neces-
sary but said that the United
States should remove the Conal-
ly proviso.
His basic argument: with in-
terests all over the globe, the
United States cannot afford to
allow other nations to .exempt
under the reciprocity clause of the
court agreement, any matters they
alone feel to be "domestic."
He also stressed the American
goal of a free world under the.
rule of law and said the reserva-
tion contradicts this. The court
offers one way to settle disputes
peacefully, and should be support-
ed with more United States con-
fidence than the reservation sym-

Missile Fails
In record Try,
An Atlas missile failed for the
second time in 10 days to fly a
record 9,042-mile course last
night when the rocket's booster
engines did not separate.
The Air Force said the missile
achieved at least part of its ob-
jectives in flying 4,500' miles, half
of its intended range.
