Congress Limps'
To Adjournment
Session Marked by House-Senate
Feuds over Prestige, Appropriations
WASHINGTON (P-The 87th Congress limped to adjournment
yesterday, ending a nine-month session marked by persistent Senate-
House feuding over prestige and appropriations.
The final regular session of this Congress was the longest since
the Korean-War year of 1951 when adjournment came on Oct. 20.
The House opened the way for adjournment yesterday by
rallying a majority of 236 members. Hopes for Friday adjournment


USSR Expels
U.S. Official
from Post,
MOSCOW -- The Soviet
Union ordered today the expulsion
of Kermit S. Midthun, First Sec-
retary of the United States Em-
bassy.. The move came one week
after the ouster of another Ameri-
can on espionage charges.
Mr. Midthun was accused of
having tried to induce a Soviet
Government employe to divulge
secret information. The diplomat,
who worked in the embassy's in-
ternal political section, is expected
to leave within a few days with his
wife, Leonor, and a daughter.
Their second daughter is in school.
in Switzerland.
Observers here said it was clear
that the two expulsions were in
retaliation for similar United
States action against two Soviet
diplomats two weeks ago on
charges of espionage.
John M. McSweeney, United
States Minister - Counselor, was
summoned to the Foreign Ministry
this afternoon to hear the expul-
sion order read to him by Mikhail
N. Smirnovsky, chief of the Min-
istry's American Department.
(An American citizen has been
arrested in Czechoslovakia on
charges of espionage, the Czech
press agency reported Friday.

Waterways Bill
It then gave voice passage to
the $5-billion appropriations bill
to finance waterways projects-
flood control, navigation and
power dam undertaking often de-
scribed as "pork barrel" projects.
The House laid aside a $500-
million catch-all supplemental ap-
propriations bill but only after
lifting from it several Senate-
approved items and adding them
to the big public works appropria-
tion measure.
Before considering these two
Houseactions, the Senate passed
by voice vote a $2.4-billion "pork
barrel" authorization bill approved
Friday by the House.
Committee Showdown
This measure-which provides
no money-was, one on which the
Senate conferees largely surrender-
ed to the House in the final con-
ference committee showdown.
The House had approved 166
projects to cost about $2.25 billion
and the Senate upped this by
about 50 projects, pushing the
authorization to about $4 billion.
But a three-day backstage
struggle largely between chairman
Robert S. Kerr (D-Okla) of the
Senate Public Works Committee
and Chairman Howard W. Smith
(D-Va) of the House Rules Com-
mittee, was won by the Virginian
and nearly all the Senate additions
were shelved.
Immigration Bill
Senate passage by voice vote also
sent to the President yesterday a
bill to permit the immigration on
a non-quota basis of an estimated
23,000 aliens.
About 7,000 of these would be
highly skilled persons, and mem-
bers of their families, whose entry
was requested by United States
employers in applications filed
with the Attorney General prior to
last April 1.
The attorney general would have
to report to Congress on each peti-
tion for admission of these persons.
The bill also would permit en-'
try of a estimated 16,000 close rel-
atives of United States citizens if
they had registered for immigra-
tion at an American consulate
abroad prior to March 31, 1954.
The largest numbers of 'these
are expected to come from Greece,
Italy and Portugal.

DETROIT - Republican guber-
natorial candidate George Romney
outlined his 11-point plan for
higher education yesterday-in-
cluding calls for expanding higher
education, scholarship aid and re-
search-to 500 Detroit area teach-
ers meeting in Oak Park.
Addressing the regional confer-
ence of the Michigan Education
Association, Romney proposed the
expansion of facilities and finan-
cial support of higher education
He said he would use Federal
aid where appropriate, but de-
clared that support should be
locally based.
For Special Needs
"It's time we realized that in
any such program, we in Michigan
will not get back what we put in.
I think we should concentiate on
state and local levels and leave
Federal aid to special needs,"
Romney asserted.
He said that the encouragement
of economic growth and develop-
ment is a major answer to ade-
quate educational financing.
The GOP candidate urged that
public and private scholarship and
loan programs be enlarged.
Develop Research
Research centers at all levels of
education should be developed, he
Romney suggested that teacher
salaries and fringe benefits be
raised "to reflect the professional
status of our educators" and to
encourage more young people to
enter the field.
He said that the state's com-
munity college system should be
Board of Education
The enlargement of the state
Board of Education to supply
planning, co-ordination and review
of all proposed state expenditures
in education was also proposed.
Romney said the state super-
intendent of public instruction
should be removed from politics.
Romney declared he favored the
consolidation of school districts
where this action would lead to
cheaper, better education. He also
said the school aid formula should
be made more simple and equit-
The GOP candidate proposed
that the work of agencies fighting
the high school drop out problem
-"squarely and adequately one of
our biggest social and economic
problems"-be co-ordinated.
Romney also urged the re-exam-
ination of the use of the total
property tax base to compute a
district's ability to support edu-
cation. He said that other prob-
lems may impinge on possible ed-
ucational revenues.

EAST LANSING-The Spartans of Michigan State outsped
and outrushed the Wolverine eleven yesterday before a record
breaking 77,501 partisan fans at Spartan Field, duplicating
last year's 28-0 shutout between the two rivals.
Michigan State dominated the entire contest. A clipping
penalty which nullified Dewey Lincoln's second quarter touch-
down sprint, five lost fumbles, and two timely interceptions
kept the State margin from being even more indicative of the
powerful team effort which they displayed.
Fullback George Saimes and halfback Lincoln spear-

Debate Control of Schools

Associated Press Education Writer
comes from the Latin word mean-
irig "eager to learn," but some
"School" comes from the Greek
word for 'leisure," but many stu-
dents consider their life anything
but leisurely.
Obviously, in education things
aren't always what they seem to
be. Consider some of the state-
ments most often made about pub-_
lic education in this country:
Local Control
"The strength of our nation's
schools lies in our tradition of
local control of education."
"We Americans can be proud
that we have equality of educa-
tional opportunity in this coun-
Over the years these beliefs have
been repeated so many times that
many people accept them as self-
evident truths.
Hallowed Sound
"Local control," for instance,
has come to have an almost hal-
lowed sound. It's like mother !ove,
apple pie and the flag: to oppose
it, or even doubt it, is to strike
at the vitals of the nation.
But there are a growing num-
ber of educators who believe that
local control is a vastly over-
rated factor in the programs of
American schools.
Thomas D. Bailey, state super-
intendent of schools in Florida,
said in a recent interview that
"absolute local control of edu-
cation in this country is non-
existent." Bailey, who emphasized
that he favored local control, made
these points:

State laDs determine the length Local school board members, it
of the scbool year, the way in should be noted, are caught in the

Big ArgumentsI
The speech makers who solemnly
testify that "we have equality of
educational opportunity in this
country" can get a big argument
from any social worker or class-
room teacher in a big city slui
"Visit a bright, attractiveschool
in a wealthy suburb," they say.
"Note the well-equipped class-
rooms and laboratories, the small
number of pupils per teacher, the
extra staff to deal with guidance
and counseling, the special pro-
grams for the bright, the average
and the slow.
"Then compare that with a
dingy, overcrowded, understaffed,
ill-equipped school in the slums,
and ask yourself, 'which school
provides the better opportunity'?"
Traffic Signs
The Center for the Study of
Liberal Education for Adults has
reported that 11 million adult
Americans cannot read a news-
paper or a magazine. They can't
read traffic signs, or the direc-
tions on a bottle of medicine. They
can't fill out an apiptication for a

would seem, some of the children

Continuing Debate
Then there is ti great and
continuing debate about federal
aid to education. Each side has one
pet argument which it considers
Those who oppose federal aid
say, "federal aid to education

The argument most often ad-
vanced in favor of federal aid to
education is. "the incal property

funds for the schools we need."

have to raise the money for the
schools, and might be tempted to
plump for government help.
On the other hand, they are ex-
tremely jealous of their control
over their own schools, and have
a deep and abiding fear of gov-
ernment interference.
Their replies did nothing to
clear up the confusion: "They were
strongly opposed to any new pro-
grams of federal aid, but at the
same time they insisted that all
present government programs be
continued or increased.

A Lot Better
"I thought we looked a 19t bet-
ter than in any previous, game
this year. The team did a lot of
running, blocking, and tackling,
and did it with a lot of enthus-
iasm," summarized State Coach
Duffy Daugherty.
Michigan Coach Bump Elliott
had a great deal of respect for
the Michigan State defense. After
the game re remarked that "I was
impressed with the State defensive
unit more than their offensive
unit. They have two of the finest
defensive ends I've ever seen."
He was speaking of Ernie Clark
and Matt Snorton who almost sin-

Guarding '
Several men students of the
University were injured in inci-
dents resulting from an attempt
Friday by quadrangle residents to
protect campus buildings from
damage by Michigan State Uni-
versity students.
Several cars were damaged by
stones, bottles' and eggs allegedly
thrown by students in the mob
and by local high school students.
Two other University students said
that they were beaten in fist fights
with Ann Arbor men.
The guards were posted as a ie-
sult of posters placed in the quad-
rangles Thursday evening, asking
for volunteers to protect the Diag,

gineering Arch from any further
'Operation Foil'
The posters, with the title
"Operation Foil," contained very
detailed instructions advising men
to stay in one area from early
evening until approximately 4 a m.
Students were told to wear dark
clothing with an identifying white
arm band and to carry no weapons
of any kind.
Thomas Gregory, '63E, vice-
president of Inter - Quadrangle
Council, said that "this action
was not an organized quadrangle
activity and was not called for by
"This was all handled outside
the realm of IQC and was evi-
dently organized by several men
in the quads," he added.
One student said that Fars drove
around the campus, attempting to
damage property and that stor.es
were thrown at them.
Local high school students drove
cars near the group and threw
bottles at some of the crowd. One
University student was hit by a
bottle near the Michigan Union
and received a bruised elbow. He
was treated at University Hospital.

Between 12:30-1:30 a.m. there
were approximately 500 students
gathered at key points on campus.

One University student satd that
the trouble was mainly provoked
by local high school students and
that the University' men were
fairly orderly.

Actress Calls APA Exciting Venture'

Alternately condemning Broad-
way theatre and producers and
the newly opened Lincoln Cultural
Center, and then enthusiastically
crying that the Association of
Producing Artists is "the most ex-
citing venture in American the-
atre," Miss Cavada Humphrey
presented her views on the state
of the theatre.
Miss Humphrey, the slender.
dark-haired Lady Snearwell of
APA's "The School for Scandal,"
praised the APA as a company
which is not just concerned with
"importing big name stars to boost
the company," a common practice
on Broadway and at the Stratford,
Conn., Shakespeare festival.
"Small theatre groups will be-
come more and more important

S t a t i n g her belief that
there is always a place for the real
indigenous thing of American
theatre which is musical comedy,
Miss Humphrey said she was
"absolutely shocked that Lincoln
Center, the national theatre of
America, should bring the Strat-
ford, England, company for its
opening." She termed this action
a "denial that there is a vital,
creative talent in this country."
Miss Humphrey sees the "Ren-
aissance of American theatre" be-
ing brought about by the decen-
tralization of theatre away from
Broadway to smaller theatres scat-
tered all over the country. These
theatres can then rotate among
themselves and Broadway, creat-
ing a solid build-up of substantial
theatre. Miss Humphrey attributed

man's mother in the Richard
Baldridge play, "We, Comrades
Three." She called it an "exhaust-
ing" performance: the play is a
"North Carolina pagent, Hamlet
and Lear combined. It is a physi-
cally complicated production," she
noted. "Friday night the backdrop
didn't come down and I had to
rewrite my lines to fit the scene
as I went along," she recalled.
APA Purpose
Miss Humphrey said that she
thought all the APA players want-
ed to accomplish the same thing
in the theatre, to "do what's need-
ed in this country and which can-
not be done on commercial Broad-!
way theatre. The APA can exist
on a long term basis and the com-
pany can grow and develop to-
