Halleck Sets
Party Huddle
Republican Leader Charles A.
Halleck of Indiana has cleared the
way for an early party confer-
ence to discuss changes in lead-
ership procedures-if not in lead-
ership personnel.
Halleck, who earlier had set the
party huddle for Jan. 4, the day
the new Congress convenes, was
quoted yesterday by an official
spolesman as being willing to
change the date to permit fuller
discussion of policies.
A sizable group of conservatives
as well as liberal Republicans,
wants a meeting in mid-Decem-
ber Their objective currently is
not to try to depose Halleck as
floor leader but to widen the base
of party policy-making in Con-
"I am dissatisfied with our lead-
ership in the House, 'not neces-
sarily our leaders, however," said
Thomas B. Curtis (R-Mo) in a
letter to colleagues urging the
mid-December meeting.
Curtis and others unhappy over
GOP losses in this year's elections
want broader representation in
party councils. They want a
change in the makeup of the poli-
ey committee and an end to what
Curtis called "wheeling and deal-
ng" on public works programs.
Instead of the policy committee
being composed of the leaders and
the senior members from nine geo-
graphical regions, Curtis said, it
should have representation from
the minority members of each
standing House committee.
These and other matters, Curtis
wrote, require lengthy considera-
tion and to consider them on the
morning a new House meets would
be too late "unless again it is the
plan for a few self-appointed
members of our waning group to
make decisions for the rest of us
ahead of time in the hopes that
they can get the majority of us
to go along."

There was a possibility ttiat the
Assembly might recess quickly
after opening its twice-postponed
fall session-thus staving off a
"confrontation which most of the
112 UN members want to avoid.
Rusk met with Gromyko during
the afternoon in what both term-

agreed to talk again in a few days.
Meanwhile, the Russians issued
a tough-worded statement "cate-
gorically" opposing Secretary-
General U Thant's plan to put

mattersswhile talks on financing
go on1.
U.S. sources said, however, they
expect the Russians will want to
stall the fight that could cost
them their vote.
Russian Plans
UN informants reported that
Gromyko has proposed to Secre-
tary-General U Thant that the
Assembly open on schedule today,
elect a president by acclamation,
then recess for, a short period
while the backstage parleys about
the money crisis continue.
The possibility of a major show-
down, which remained after Rusk
and Gromyko failed to settle the
issue, sent envoys from the Afri-
can-Asian, neutralist and Latin
American blocs into a series of
huddles to see what last-minute
compromise might be worked out.
Both Rusk and Gromyko met with
U Thant.
After his meeting with Rusk,
Gromyko declined to say specific-
ally that the Soviets will push fr
a showdown. A Rusk spokesman
also,would not say that the So-
viets are going to bring the dis-
pu'te to a quick climax.
. Avoid Conflict
Other U.S. sources said that
while some other UN members
could bring on a showdown at the
Assembly start, they believe that
both the United States and the
Soviet Union want to put off a
In Rusk's behalf, State Depart-
ment Press Officer Robert J. Mc-
Closkey said:
"The United States is interest-
ed in a solution to the- problem
which meets the satisfaction of the
membership at large. We have
not, sought a confrontation with
the Soviet Union."
Count Votes
At the same time, U.S. strate
gists were counting noses for a
possible vote today in the wake
of the Russian snub of a bid by
UN Secretary-General U Thant
to stave off a showdown pending
further financial talks.
The Americans, on preliminary

certain to get the post. But any
move to hold a secret vote as in
the past could bring about an im-
mediate clash over whether the
Soviet Union should lose its vote
because it is two years behind in
peacekeeping assessments.
Delay Issues
This would set off a debate that
could last for days, and put off
indefinitely consideration of the
92 issues on the agenda of the 19th
session. These range from the

Consider Interdisciplinary
LSA Program in Science
The literary college steering committee last night considered
instituting an interdisciplinary science program which would pro-
vide liberal arts majors with an awareness of certain basic scientific
concepts, rather than the specialized knowledge of a few sciences that
students now obtain.
Instead of following a specific descipline such as botany or zoo-
logy, students Could fulfill the requirement for a two-semester labora-
tory sequence with the interdis-
ciplinary course, which would seek
to correlate all the sciences.
Following this course in' scienti-
fic concepts, students would then
specialize, electing one course in
a specific area of the sciences.
The interdisciplinary course
would be similar to the "Revolu-

"Most of, the poverty in Appa-
lachia is poor-land poverty - it

History has also worked to pro-
mote this kind of poverty in Ap-
palachia, he added. The original
settlers ignored road-building and
schools. Today, most roads are
often Indian trails and are im-
passable much of the year. 900
one-room schools, 40 per cent of
the nation's total, are in Appa-
lachia. The result, Caudill explain-
ed, has been poverty, isolation and
ignorance "impossible for the city-
dweller to conceive."
Industrial Poverty
Caudill noted that Appalachia
has also been afflicted by what
'he called "industrial poverty."
The coal industry began exten-
sive operations before the turn of

government has had to build high
schools for them."
Frequently, when there were
taxes, the companies named the
assessors. "In effect, they taxed
themselves, and, obviously, they
were lenient," Caudill remarked.
This . advantage held by the
companies allowed them to exploit
great wealth from the region
which wa's consequently prevented
from accumulating any weath of
its own, he charged.
When coal companies automat-
ed or decided to close down oper-
ations temporarily in response to
low coal prices, the situation
worsened, Caudill added.
Mining Dangers

"The apologists for the coal com-
panies have long said that nature
will heal the scars and that forest
fires are prevented. That is in-
escapably true, since if you bury
a forest with mud, it cannot
burn," he said.
