UNALIGNED NATIONS MEETING:
Propose Congo Peace Force,

CAIRO (WP)-President Kwame
Nkrumah of Ghana proposed yes-
terday that an African peace force
be sent to pacify' the Congo, whose
premier has been barred from the
conference of nonaligned nations
here and is now under house ar-
rest in a Cairo suburb.
In presenting his proposal to,
the conference, Nkrumah said all-
foreign soldiers and mercenaries
should be forced to leave the Con-
go immediately.
He asked the conference to order
foreign powers to keep hands off
the Congo and to demand with-
drawal of white mercenaries
brought in by Premier Moise
Tshombe to fight leftist rebels in
the eastern and northern Congo.,
The United States has sent planes

and crews t6 ferry Congo troops
to the fighting fronts.,
Nkrumah did not mention'
Tshombe by name. He also failed
to mention that Tshombe had
asked several African countries to
help him put down the Congo re-
bellion. These requests were re-
fused.
Nkrumah said the force should
be sent by the Organization of
African Unity and stay there until
elections could bring about "a
democratic government."
Tshombe has been banned by
the conference and is a hostage
of President Gamal Abdel Nasser's
government.-
An aide to Tshombe replied that
Tshombe might decline a plane,
out even if the Egyptians permit-
ted him to leave.

General Library To Restrict
Carrel Space to Graduates
By JEREMY RAVEN
Undergraduates studying in the General Library stacks this fall!
have found that all 260 study carrels there are being fitted with
locked doors.
Frederick H. Wagman, director of the University Library, said the
action was being taken because of "generally too much misbehavior
on the part of some undergraduates.,"
Each carrel is now assigned to two or three graduate students,

The Tshombe situation has to
date drawn more attention than
-the conference, which opened
Monday.
A resolution banninig Tshombe's
attendance at the conference was
pushed through Tuesday by lead-
ers of other African states who
accuse Tshombe of being a stooge
for Western powers.
Ker's Faith
Questioned.
At Berkley
President of the Associated
Students of Berkeley Charles
Powell conferred with University
of California President Clark Kerr
last night to see whether thej
Berkeley administration was "act-
ing in good faith" on. agreements
reached last week regarding stu-
dent political activity.
Although t h e administration
had promised to submit suspen-
sion rulings against eight Berke-
ley students to a standing faculty
committee, student leaders be-
came quite dubious of the good
faith of the agreement when they
found that no standing faculty
committee for reviewing student
suspensions exists..
Powell decided to find out
whether this apparent inconsis-
toncy was deliberate or the result
of a misunderstanding.
Results of Powell's conference
with Kerr were not yet known at
press time.
Last week the Berkeley admin-
istration had promised to ease its
restrictions on participation in
direct political action on the
Berkp'ey campus. The restrictions
touched off three days of student
rioting.
The eight students were arrest-
ed and suspended when they so-
licited funds for political organi-
zations after dormant adminis-
tration curbs on political activity
had been renewed.

Discusses
Future of
Merger
By LAUREN BAHR
League Council heard recently
a report on general areas of con-
cern regarding the Union-League
merger. The concerns had been
enumerated in a private conversa-
tion prior to the council meeting
by Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis.
Telling the council of her dis-
cussions with Lewis, council Co-
ordinating Vice-President Gail
Howes, '66, detailed general top-
ics and questions. .
,Lewis was first concerned with
who is to have jurisdiction over
the budget, of the merged orga-
nization and who is to be its au-
ditor.
He asked for clarification of the
role of the merged organization in
regard to Student Government
Council.
Up until now, neither the Union
nor the League have been consid-
ered student organizations. Thus,
they were not under the jurisdic-
tion of SGC.
He suggested that the new or-
ganization sever all ties with the
existing Boards of Governors for
both the Union and the League
and organize a completely ,new
board.
"This suggestion was met with
opposition," Miss Howes said. The
way the structure is presently set
up, the Board of Governors df both
groups will remain as they are
Without creating a third board for
the merged organization.
According to Miss Howes, Lewis
was suggesting that the new board
be University-financed and as such
come under the jurisdiction of
the Office of Student Affairs-
thus becoming an SGC appendage.
"At present this idea is com-
pletely unfeasible, since the Re-
gents will not agree to the crea-;
tion of a new organization but
only to the merging of the stu-
dent activities now sponsored sep-
arately by the Union and the
League," Miss Howes commented.

Ask U.S.-NATO
Atom Policy
WASHINGTON (A')-The West
German government is reportedly
pressing the United States to nail
down a NATO nuclear fleet agree-
ment by the end of this year.
Germany is evidently prepared to
act without participation of other
allies.
A statement' by West German
Chancellor Ludwig Erhard was
generally interpreted to mean that
if other nations refuse to partici-
pate, Germany and the United
States might still go ahead.
The nuclear fleet has always
been envisioned as a surface force
armed with U.S. Polaris missiles
and manned by crews from many
NATO nations. A two-nation force
would mean a radical switch in
U.S. policy.
Top officials declined, however,
to rule out the possibility of such;
a switch, though they insisted that
no firm decision has been made.
Some informants said the U.S.
might have to go along with a
U.S.-German force plan but would
be reluctant to do so.
Erhard expects increasing in-
ternational debate over the fleet
project, which has stirred dis-
ruptive controversy within the At-
lantic alliance for four years. An
expected discussion in the UN
General Assembly could lead to
some general condemnation of the
nuclear force.

space in which to spread out and
store the materials necessary for
writing of their theses.
In the past, undergraduates
were free to use the carrels when-
ever the graduates assigned to
them were not present. But, Wag-
man explained, many graduate'
students have been complaining
about the destruction or theft of
their books, doctoral notes and
other materials.
He added that some undergrad-
uates using the carrels have been
noisy and that some have respond-
ed rudely when asked to let grad-
uate students use the carrels.
For these reasons, Wagman ex-
plained, the library.hgs been com-
pelled to place the carrels off,
limits to undergraduates.
He indicated that 60 or 70
carrels have already been equip-
ped with doors. Doors for the re-
maining carrels, plus locks for all
of them, will be provided grad-
ually, as rapidly as necessary
funds can be obtained.
Wagman did not think the ac-
tion would greatly increase crowd-
ing at the Undergraduate Library.
He said most of the undergradu-
ates who have complained to him
about closing the carrels study in
them only because they prefer to,
not because they can't find room
in other libraries on the campus.
indergraduates will still be
permitted to use the stacks and
to study in other- parts of the,
General Library, Wagman added.
He added that the carrels, open-
ed to undergraduates in 1958, were
"never intended as' study space
for anyone except those to whom
they are assigned."
It is common practice in li-
braries at other universities to
extend carrel privileges only to
people working on their doctoral;
dissertations, he said. While it has
revoked study privileges for under-
graduates, the University Library
remains one of the few in the
country to /allow undergraduates
even to enter its stacks, Wagman
noted.

formed to present alleged student
grievances to the administration-

UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT HARLAN HATCHER, right, yesterday discussed student grievances with
Richard Horevitz, '67, left, and others seeking alleviation of the administratiop's alleged lack of con-
cern for student life here. The conversation took place at the president's open house, where about 200
students came after rallies on the Diag yesterday and Tuesday. President tHatcher expressed his will-
ingness to meet with the students on their grievances.

Johnson told a crowd at Peoria,
Ill., he is going to ask for social
security improvements "maybe
sooner than. you think." Asked
later if this meant after, Jan. 3,
when the new Congress convenes,
he said, "I didn't say'that."
Earlier, in Des Moines, he claim-
ed there are some Americans
whose policies would wreck and
bankrupt the social security sys-
tem and one farmer out of five.
Goldwater rapped what he call-
ed the growing concentration of
power in Washington and called
for curbs on crime and disorders.
"We have heard of and seen
many wars in the time of the
present administration," he said In
Newark. "But have we yet heard
of the only needed war-the war
against crime?
"This I can pledge to you-that
I will launch the attack."

Of Grievances.
By MERLE JACOB
Some 100 students gave birth to
the Student Action League last
night and then debated just what
the organization should do.
Barry Bluestone, '66, and Rich-
ard Horevitz, '67, leaders of the
group, emphasized that the organ-
ization must present reasonable'
demands with rational alternatives
to the administration if the league
is to build an effective organiza-,
tion to act on student grievances.
The meeting and formation of
the league were an outgrowth of
a rally held Tuesday noon on the;
Diag. The rally, sponsored bya
Voice, was to arouse mass support
for student grievances.
In an open-floor discussion, the
gathering enumerated the specific
areas in which they felt the SALa
must work:
"--Student wages;,
"general lack of concern for
student"wdfare on the part of the
administration;
"-Elimination of student jobs;.'
"--Too much emphasis on re-

There is good reason for thinking that a universal city-a me
