For Solidarity
WASHINGTON (P-President John F. Kennedy reportedly made
an appeal to the foreign ministers of 19 Latin American countries
yesterday for hemispheric solidarity to quench the fire of Commu-
nism in Cuba.
The President was described by Sen. John Sparkman (D-Ala),
one of those who attended a White House luncheon, as speaking at
lengthhand vigorously on the theme that the Soviet threat posed there

Anti Gaullists
kEnter Motion
For Censure
PARIS (M-Opponents of Presi-
dent Charles de Gaulle last night
struck back at his constitutional
reform plan. .
They filed a motion of censure
which threatens to topple the goy-.
ernnient of Premier Georges Pom-
This could mean the dissolution
of parliament, and new elections.
The Motion of censure, filed by
non-Gaullist, non-Communist par-
ties of the National Assembly, at-
tacks de Gaulle's proposal that fu-
ture presidents be elected by di-
rect universal suffrage. It accuses
de Gaulle of violating the consti-
tution he helped write in 1958.
De Gaulle has valled for a pop-
ular referendum on this consti-
tutional change.
The cabinet yesterday set the
referendum for Oct. 28.
Education Minister Pierre Sud-
reau boycotted this session and in-
formed sources said he'd resigned.

" is the responsibility of all - not
only the United States.
Exert Pressure
Earlier, the United States called
on these Latin American allies to
Join in more extensive and con-
certed political and economic pres-
sures against the Soviet-backed
government of Fidel Castro.
Secretary of State Dean Rusk
is reported also to have made two
other points of United States poli-
cy in opening a 20-nation con-
ference of foreign ministers on the
Cuban situation.
Cuban Relations
First, the United States will
make every possible effort to deal
with Cuba through the Inter-
American Defense System and the
Organization of American States,
but will act as it deems necessary
if the threat or use of force by
Cuban-based Communism affects
vital American interests, he said.
Also, Rusk assured them that
there is no possibility of a deal
with the Russians to end Soviet
support for Castro by trading
Western concessions in Berlin or
some othet area of cold war con-
No Action Outlined
Rusk avoided laying down any
detailed blueprint for action, but
he left no doubt that the United
States feels further steps are nec-
essary to isolate Cuban Commu-
nism and to strengthen; hemis-
phere defenses against Cuban-
based subversion.
The delegates went to the White
House for lunch with Kennedy
after hearing Rusk's speech and
opening statements from repre-
sentatives of Nicaragua, Argen-
tina, the Dominican Republic,
Guatemala, and Honduras.
Unity Develops.
While protocol ruled out any
formal response by the ministers,
some of them told members of
Congress that surprising unity was
developing in conferences to gain
broader and more concentrated
political and economic pressures
against the Russian-backed gov-
ernment of Fidel Castro.
As an example, it was reported
that Argentina had reversed its
previous position and c a m e
through at a conference session
with a strong statement support-
ing the United States position.

Six Orbits

Walter M. Schirra Jr., ran through
his flight plans for what he hoped
was the last time yesterday, pre-
paring for today's launch on a
i'ocket flight six times around the

Daisy continued to kick up five
to eight foot waves in the second
orbit recovery area, Project Mer-
cury Operations Director Walter
Williams ordered technicians to
continue preparations for the
launching between 7 and 10 a.m.
There is a possibility that the
entire launch phase might be wit-
nessed behind the Iron Curtain,
Paul Haney, a spokesman for the
space agency, said.
" h yAsk Questions
"They are interested enough to'
be asking questions and one of
the questions is: if there is a dis-
aster will you show it?" he added.
Haney said the Soviet Bloc tele-
vision representatives had been
told the answer was "yes."
If the launching occurs between
7:51 and 8:17 a.m., the Telstar
Communications Satellite will be
within range so that live cover-
age of the event could be trans-
mitted instantly to television view-
ers in 17 countries of the Euro-
Vision network.
8-Minute Broadcast
The United States plan calls for
an eight-minute Telstar transmis-
sion to Europe. If the launch'
comes during that period, it may
be possible to show Europe the
last two to four minutes of pre-
launch activity and the four-min-
ute climb until the launching rock-
et is out of sight.
Williams explained his decision
to proceed with launch plans de-
spite the weather.
Weather Conditions
"This is about as close as we
will ever come to suitable weather
around the entire track," he not-

where he might come down in the
Atlantic, that fleet is much larger
than the one in the Pacific. There
are only two planned landing
areas in the Pacific.

Senate Passes Measure
On Foreign Assistance
WASHINGTON W)-In line with administration strategy, the
Senate passed the foreign aid money bill yesterday after beating back
every attempt to cut the '$792.4 million added by its appropriations
committee over what the House voted.
The vote was 57 to 24.
The measure carrying $4.4 billion in new economic and military
assistance now goes to a Senate-House conference to work out a com-
promise. The result is expected to be less than the Senate total while
oretaining a big portion of the
slash made by the House two
weeks ago.
Cut Total
President John F. Kennedy had
asked for $4.9 billion last January
but the figure was cut to $4.7 bil-
lion in the authorization bill which
-> . set spending ceilings.
The House went along with its
appropriations committee in
shrinking the money total $1.1 bil-
lion below that-to $3.6 billion.
Aid to Cuba
The Senate voted to give the
President authority to permit aid
to countries which sell arms to
Cuba or permit their ships to be
used to transport military sup-
plies to the Communist-run is-

Associated Press Education Writer
WASHINGTON-Even rougher
days may lie ahead for Ole Miss.
The rioting over admission of a
Negro will eventually be quelled
and physical peace will be restor-
ed to the campus. But the dark
shadow of loss of accreditation
may hang over the university for
many long weeks.
The Executive Council of the
Commission on Colleges of the
Southern Association of Colleges
and High Schools issued a stern
warning to state officials and the
university administration Friday
Warning Unnoticed
The warning passed largely un-
noticed in the hullaballoo attend-
ing the admission of Negro James
H. Meredith.
The Council warned that unless
"unwarranted interference with
the integrity of the institution" is
removed, it will recommend that
formal accreditation be withdrawn
from all seven of Mississippi's
state colleges and universities.
Such withdrawal of accredita-
tion is, in effect, a sanction. If

carried out, and nationally ob-
served, the diplomas and degrees
awarded by these state institu-
tions would not be recognized else-
Affects Seniors
Thus, their graduating seniors
next spring could not leave Mis-
sissippi to go on to graduate school.
Outside the state, their graduating
lawyers and doctors could not prac-
tice and the certificates of their
graduating teachers would be con-
sidered invalid.
"Mississippi officials might
choose to ignore this," one Wash-
ington educational authority said.
"But you can be sure the alumni
won't. And the students-regard-
less of how they feel about inte-
gration-will hesitate to do work
for which, in effect, they will get
no credit, at least outside the
Political Interference
The council said the issue is not
the admission of Meredith to Ole
Miss, but political interference
with the university.
Meanwhile, a graduate of the
University of Mississippi, now ac-
tive in national education affairs
in Washington, said yesterday,

"The university has been going
steadily downhill since the Unit-
ed States Supreme Court's deci-
sion on desegregation in 1954."
The graduate, who asked not to
be further identified, added:
"For the past eight years the
focus has been on integration, and
how to avoid it.
Lose Faculty
"There has been a tremendous
turnover in what used to be a very
fine faculty. Many of the univer-
sity's outstanding professors have
left for other colleges and univer-
"Those who have stayed behind
have been afraid to speak out
against interference by the politi-
He noted a recent change in the
progress of student admissions at
the university.
Admission Changes
"Mississippi traditionally has ac-
cepted all Mississippi youngsters
who are in the top half of their
graduating class," he\ said.
"A few years ago, however, it
was ruled that each applicant for
admission must file with the reg-
istrar five letters of recommenda-
tion from responsible citizens who
have known him for at least two
"The 1962 university catalog puts
it this way. 'An applicant who re-
sides in Mississippi must be rec-
ommended by citizens of his coun-
ty who are university alumni.'
"Whenrthey leave the admis-
sion standards up to the alumni,"
the graduate said, "you can be cer-
tain that nobody but 'right-think-
ers' are going to be admitted, no
matter how talented they are."

What does Dame Fashion decree for the coming school year?
(Incidentally, Dame Fashion is not, as many people believe, a
fictitious character. She was a real Englishwoman who lived in
Elizabethan times and, indeed, England is forever in her debt.
During the invasion of the Spanish Armada, Dame Fashion-
not yet a Dame but a mere, unlettered country lass named
Moll Flanders-during the invasion, I say, of the Spanish
Armada, this dauntless girl stood on the white cliffs of Dover
and turned the tide of battle by rallying the drooping morale of
the British fleet with this stirring poem of her own composidij;
Don't be gutless,
Men of Britain.
Swing your cutlass,
We ain't quittin'.
Smash the Spanish,
,Sink their boats,
Make 'em vanish,
Like a horse makes oats.
For Good Queen Bess,
Dear sirs, you gotta
Make a mess
Of that Armada.
You won't fail!
Knock 'em flat!
Then we'll drink ale
And stuff like that.

As a reward for these inspirational verses Queen Elizabeth
dubbed her a Dame, made her Poet Laureate, and gave her
the Western Hemisphere except Duluth. But this was not the
extent of Dame Fashion's service to Queen and country. In
1589 she invented the laying hen, and she was awarded a life-
time pass to Chavez Ravine. But she was not to end her days
in glory. In 1591, alas, she was arrested for overtime jousting
and imprisoned for thirty years in a butt of malmsey. This later
became known as Guy Fawkes Day.)
But I digress. Let us get back to campus fashions. Certain to
be the rage again this year is the cardigan (which, curiously
enough, was named after Lord Cardigan, who commanded the
English fleet against the Spanish Armada. The sweater is only
one product of this remarkable Briton's imagination. He also
invented the glottal stop, the gerund, and the eyelid, without
which winking, as we know it today, would not be possible).
But I digress. The cardigan, I say, will be back, which is, I
believe, cause for rejoicing. Why? Because the cardigan has
nice big nockets in which to carry your Marlboro Cigarettes-
