ENGLISH 23, 24:
LSA Committee
May Drop Courses
A committee appointed by the literary college curriculum com-
mittee will have a tentative statement ready within the month con-
cerning the abolition of English 23 and 24.
This committee is now in the process of determining whether or
not to recommend to the curriculum committee that the required
freshmen English courses should remain as they are, be abolished
or modified, Prof. Frank O. Copley of the classical studies department
and chairman of the committee explained.
What reaction the curriculum committee would have to the
committee's statement Prof. Copley could not say. They might even

Mayor Hints
Nichols Arb
The prospect of abandoning the
Nichols Arboretum was proposed
for the Ann Arbor University Re-
lations Committee by Mayor Cecil
0. Creal at the Ann} Arbor City
Council meeting last night.
This suggestion was among those
listed by Creal; as he outlined the
duties of this projected committee.
Called Meeting
The mayor also announced that
Senator Philip A. Hart (D-Mich)
has called a meeting in Washing-
ton on May 5, for a one-day con-
ference with mayors from various
Michigan cities and top officials
of the federal government in an
attempt to picture what cities need
and what the federal government
can do for them.
The council has also approved
the issuance of a liquor license for
a new Holiday Inn in the Lake-
wood subdivision.
Alderman Robert Meader (R)'
suggested that since a bowling

wish to experiment with control'
groups of freshmen, before tak-
in action, he speculated.
The committee has met only
three times, Prof. Copley pointed
out, so all its considerations are
still highly tentative. "We have
been getting together such infor-
mation as we could about the
need for English 23 and 24.
"In addition we have been try-
ing to take an informal survey of
the faculty to determine whether
or not they generally believe that
this requirement could be aban-
doned or modified."
As part of the basis for their
studies the committee has been
making use of statements by Prof.
Warner G. Rice and Prof. Henry
V. S. Ogden of the English de-
partment on, the advisability of
modifying the graduation require-
ments in English composition.
Latins Move
To Stop Riots
By The Associated Press
Three Latin American nations
were forced last night to resort
to force to break up crowds of
pro-Castro demonstrators, many
of whom were attacking the Unit-
ed States position on Cuba.
In Uruguay, squads of steel-
helmeted police hurled tear gas
to drive back a crowd of more
thanr3,000 trying to demonstrate
for Castro's policies in front of
the legislative palace.
Visiting Italian President Gio-
vanni Gronchi was attending a
palace dinner as guest of honor
when the demonstrators formed
up several blocks away.
Earlier about 1,000 youths shout-
ing vivas for Fidel Castro stormed
through the downtown area, forc-
ing the rerouting of a motorcade
taking Gronchi to the dinner.
In Colombia, police firing rifles
and advancing with bayonets
broke up a pro-Castro crowd at-
tempting to attack the United
States embassy in Bogota.
Officers said four youths were
hospitalized with bullet wounds.
The crowd, estimated at 1,500,
marched on the embassy after
smashing all windows at the Unit-
ed States-operated Colombian-

Foreign Aid
Task Force
Picks Hayes
Prof. Samuel P. Hayes of the
economics department has been
appointed by President John F.
Kennedy to a national "task force"
to review and formulate the United
States foreign aid program.
The purpose of the advisory
group, President Kennedy said, is
"to shift aid to a sound and eco-
nomical basis." The committee
will draft legislation aimed at in-
tegrating all present aid programs
and putting them on a long-range
rather than on a year-to-year
Prof. Hayes served as executive
secretary of the interdepartmental
group which developed President
Truman's Point Four program. He
also worked as director of the
foreign aid mission to Indonesia
and assistant director in charge of

BRUSSELS ) - The Belgian
radio said last night a military
cease-fire agreement was signed
yesterday between military lead-
ers of the Leopoldville and Stan-
leyville Gizenga governments in
the Congo.
The radio said the cease-fire
was signed for "the whole Congo
territory" and that Gizengist
troops of General Lundula "ac-
knowledged Leopoldville's author-
ity on the (Oriental) province
armed forces."
The broadcast quoted the Con-
golese radio in Leopoldville as
saying the agreement was reached
at Akte, a small town in northern
Oriental province.
In a later broadcast the Bel-
gian radio said well informed cir-
cles expressed doubts about the re-
ported agreement. These sources
said that neither of the generals
had authority to sign such an

Semi-Stationary Trough
Caused Our Cold inter
Last year at this time the temperature was 72 degrees in Ann
Arbor. Yesterday the high temperature was 40. Today the forecast
reads more snow and showers with a high temperature of 45.
The only campus comment found on the subject is WHY?
The meterology department has some very good reasons. They
include fronts, jet streams, blocking and various other terms, one
more confusing than the next.
J. B. Harrington, assistant research meteorologist, has attempted
to explain, in simple terms, what is going on in the atmosphere
which causes women to don wooly sweaters and push spring clothes
further back in the closet. Ini-

alley had previously been denied
a tavern license in the same area
perhaps that reasoning would ap-
ply in this case.
Definite Improvement
Mayor Creal replied that the
Holiday Inn would be a definite
improvement to the Ann Arbor
community, and Mrs. Gayle Flan-
nery (R) said the clientele would
be different from that attracted by
the bowling alley.
During constituents' time, James
Watts, father of a six-year-old
boy who was burned to death
when fire swept his home last
week, asked the Council for city
fire protection, even though he is
an Ann Arbor Township resident.
He cited the fact that the city,
having received his fire call, could
not act since he lives in the town-
ship. The township fire depart-
ment was unreachable, he said.
Creal directed him to appeal for
immediate annexation.

This year air currents which
usually run from west to east are
moving far north and far south
in a wave pattern. This is known
as a meridional effect.
For most of this winter a trough
of cold air has lain over the east-
ern part of the United States
and a ridge of warm air has lain
over the west. This trough, con-
trary to usual practice has been
semi- stationary and contained by
the fronts.
Storms tend to occur on the
east side of the trough, and since
this has been over the east coast
all winter, the area has exper-
ienced heavy storms. The center
of the trough has lain over the
middle west and has been re-
sponsible for our cold winter.
The rain yesterday and today is
caused by a low pressure area
which was located a little south of
Ann Arbor yesterday and is slowly
moving eastward. This is the first
major change in circulation i
many months and we now have a
huge center of low pressure from

The forecast for tomorrow is

forecast for the next few days

thing hopeful possible after this.

Seen Gaining
On Wage Bill
WASHINGTON (A)-Administra-
tion leaders appeared to be gath-
ering strength yesterday in their
efforts to push through the senate
a iinimum wage bill acceptable
to President John F. Kennedy.
The Senate will take up the
measure today under an agree-
ment to limit debate. This agree-
ment could bring final action be-
fore the day ends.
Senate Democratic leader Mike
Mansfield of Montana remained
confident that he could muster the
votes to beat down an amendment
by Sen. A. S. Mike Monroney (D-
Okla), that appears to pose the
greatest threat to passage of the
kind of bill Kennedy wants.
As the measure now stands, it
would boost the minimum wage
from $1 to $1.25 an hour in 28
months for about 24 million pres-
ently covered workers and extend
coverage to about four million
more at $1, with increases to $1.25
in four years.
Monroney has sought to limit
coverage to employees of firms
which do business in more than
one state. His amendment would
reduce new coverage to about 2.4
million workers.

Bea Nemlaha, '61, has been ap-
pointed to the presidency of the

To Maintain
Present Rates
Seek To Lower Costs
By Cutting Services,
Ending Sunday Meal
The University is not at the
moment planning to increase res-
idence hall fees.
The preliminary 1961-62 dorm-
tory budget does not include a
rate increase, Francis C. Shiel,
service enterprises manager, told
the Board of Governors of the
Residence Halls yesterday.
The possibility of a boost first
came to light a month ago when
residence halls business manager
Leonard A. Schaadt informed
house service chairman of a po-
tential increase.
No Decision
No final decision will be forth-
coming on a rate increase until
late May at the earliest, Vice-
President for Student Affairs
James A. Lewis said. He added that
the rooming contracts allow the
fees to be raised even after sign-
Shies, in his statement to the
Board, said, "We are now proceed-
ing with the preparation of pre-
liminary 1961-62 residence halls
budget on the basis that there will
not be an, increase in board and
room rates.
"However, many items of ex-
pense make up the cost of operat-
ing residence hal, some of which
in themselves or in combination
could make an increase necessary.
Expresses Reluctance
"Some of these items are not
known at this time and therefore
we are reluctant at this point to
make a positive factual state-
ment that there will not be an
crease. We are still studying var-.
ious means or methods of achiev-
ing and evercising economies in
the operation to make an increase
In a discussion of possible econ-
omy measures, Assembly President
Myra Goines, '61, said, "After
speaking to a number of people, I
found that they were definitely
against the elimination of Sun-
day supper."
This curtailment of Sunday
meal service was one of the means
suggested by Schaadt to help cut
costs. Claiming that only 60 per
cent of the residents attended the
meal, Schaadt stated that its
elimination would represent a $16
per capita saving.
Opposed Cut
Miss Goines said that the girls
opposed the cut because of crowd-,
ed conditions in Ann Arbor res-
taurants. Last Saturday, the IQC
Conference on Quadrangle living
unofficially supported deletion 'of
the Sunday evening meal as an
economy measure.
Shiel noted that the University
was one of four of the Big Ten
schools that does not plan to in-
crease room and board fees.
So far, Ohio State has an-
nounced a $30 per year increase
to $825 and Iowa will boost rates
$60 to $880. Also, the University
of California's rates will reach
$840, a $60 to $70 hike, depending
on the campus.
Shiel said that the increases
will bring the average per diem
costs in the$Big Ten from $3.44
to $3.55 or $3.60. The cost at the
University is $3.48.

Uion Beg ins Opinion Poll
With Student Interviews
A survey to study campus opinion on the Michigan Union, which
will involve 500 students, began yesterday, former Union President
Perry W. Morton, '61, said last night.
The students to be interviewed about the Union's facilities and
services were chosen at random from the campus as a whole. Twenty-
three student interviewers will ask them to define their conception of
the Union's role and to make specific comments of present facilities.
The selection of the interviewees, training of interviewers and the
formulation of questions were carried out with the help of a "profes-

sional opinion survey organza-"
tion," Morton, a director of the
survey, said.
Improve Services
The ultimate goal of the survey
--to be supplemented with similar
ones involving faculty, alumni and
administrators-is to improve the
services the Union offers, Morton
"For this reason we need a valid
survey of opinion on which to base
our policy changes," he said. "To
have a valid survey we need almost
100 per cent replies, so I am urging
everyone involved to participate
The interviews will be conducted
in two parts. An "open end" an-

In small towns and rural areas

Similarly, he notes that his gov-
ernment discourages deep involve-
ment in activities among those
students it sends abroad. The rea-
son for this is that the government
fears too much extra-curricular
diversion will hinder studies.
The government, in line with
this philosophy, last year cancelled
its support of the then-public high
schools. Now it pays only for the
teachers' salaries.
