Tour Opens in Moscow

MOSCOW ') - The University
1band, using a pumber of borrowed
instruments, opened an eight-week
tour of the Soviet Union last night
with a warmly received concert at
Moscow's Sports Palace.
The audience couldn't get enough
of Gershwin tunes.
The Soviet news agency Tass
[ hailed the concert and said "this
sensitive, fluid and disciplined stu-
dent orchestra is well on a par

The tour was to have opened
last night but bad weather delayed
the band's arrival. Several band
members felt the postponement
was partly to blame for the rela-
tively light attendance.
The best liked selections were
"Summertime," from "Porgy and
Bess," and a medley from "My
Fair Lady.";
Selections by American com-
posers such as Robert Russell Ben-
nett received only polite applause,
as did pieces by the Italian Verdi
and the Russians Rimsky-Korsa-
kov and Prokofleff.
Conductor William D. Revelli
got warm applause when he
thanked the audience and said
"music is the greatest instrument
in the world for peace."
When the two-hour concert
ended, several thousand persons
crowded around the bandstand,
obviously hoping for some Ameri-
can numbers. Several in the audi-
ence kept shouting "Gershwin."
Revelli responded with several
mild marches and the Internation-
ale. Demands for Gershwin tunes
continued and the crowd moved
away only when the Russian mas-
ter of ceremonies shouted, "It's

long-time unemployed who have
used up their insurance rights.
Aides said final committee ac-

make almost $1 billion available
for extra unemployment payments
for up to 13 weeks.
To finance the program, how-
ever, the committee is substitut-

tion proposal a method preferred
by most Republicans and business
spokesmen who appeared before
the group.
The committee, meeting all day
behind closed doors, was under-
stood to have agreed on an in-
crease in the unemployment insur-
ince tax rate, limited to two
years. The tax, now 3.1 per cent,
would go up to 3.4 or 0.5 per cent,
depending on final studies of the
amount needed. Kennedy proposed
maintaining the present rate, but

Informed by the group at Wayne

up for the showing tonight that
they would be unable to do so.
Gregg Nigosian, spokesman for
the group, said that the difficulty
was only in providing transporta-
tion for a member to bring the
film to the University.
To Expedite Approval
A motion will be presented to
the Council tonight by the execu-
tive committee regarding, the ac-,
tivities section of the University
regulations booklet.
"The major purpose of this mo-
tion is to facilitate approval of
student sponsored events and
clarify the procedures involved,"
John Feldkamp, '61, chairman of
the Council, said.
The change in the regulations
means that the Council as a whole
will not act on calendaring of
student events except for events
referred to the Council by James
A. Lewis, vice-president for Stu-
dent Affairs.
Two Other Motions
The Council will also decide on:
two motions that have previously
been considered in committee as
a -whole since they are expressions
of student opinion.
One is a motion by Seasonwein
which would amend the University
regulations on membership lists to
require organizations to list their
officers and faculty advisor with
the Office of Student Affairs but
not their members, as is present-
ly required. The motion would give
organizations the option of con-
firming their membership require-
ment of twenty or more by either
a notarized statement or a mem-
bership list.
The other motion, proposed by

U.S. Orbits Satellites;
May Aid in Navigation
WASHINGTON (P)-A pair of satellites launched from Cape
Canaveral on a single booster rocket are in orbit, the Defense De-
partment announced early today.
The double-header space rocket carrying the Navy's Transit III-B
satellite and a smaller hitchhiking vehicle was fired aloft at 10:45
p.m. (EST) last night.
The brief announcement by the Defense Department said that re-
ports received from various trackin gstations showed the satellites
were orbiting.
The Defense Department said that details of how high and along
what path the satellites were traveling wdtuld be announced later to-
day, after computations had been made.
The principal passenger on the rocket was the Navy's 250-pound
Transit III-B navigation satellite. Riding as a "hitchhiker" was a

Calls Japan Youth 'Communistic'

A visiting Japanese student
leader said last night that the
Japanese national student asso-
ciation (Zengakuren) is Commun-
istic, but not controlled by the
Communist party.
Masa Nishihara, former presi-'
dent of a student press agency in
Japan, pointed out a three-way
split in the Zengakuren which
places the controlling main stream
to the left of the Japanese Com-
munist Party and violently op-
posed to it.
"The Zengakuren's executive
committee and many local leaders
are Trotskyites, who feel the party
is moving too slowly. They openly
advocate revolution and oppose
peaceful coexistence."

can issue executive orders for stu-
dent action.
Mandates Mobilize
A Zengakuren mandate, working
through campus student govern-
ment bodies, can mobilize -all
Japanese students for a demon-
stration or strike. Although par-
ticipation is still voluntary, most
students usually support demon-
strations. USNSA passes resolu-
tions on issues which concern stu-
dents, but does not have the power
to incite student action.
