Police Remove Various Firearms
From House Adjacent to Meredith
By The Associated Press
OXFORD, Miss.-Military policemen hauled out a dismantled
pistol, a dismantled M-1 rifle and several tear-gas grenades last
night from a men's dormitory at the University of Mississippi.
The dormitory, Lester Hall, is next door to Baxter Hall, where
James H. Meredith lives.
The military policemen came out with the weapons-as well as
a five-gallon gasoline can and a large supply of fireworks-after

form is necessary, but disagreed on
Debating the merits of Gov.
John B. Swainson's tax proposals
Prof. Bretton charged that "as

inated Legislature, there will be no
Citing Bursley as a leader in the
fight for a nuisance tax program
that finally passed the Legislature
after the Senate had rejected a
fiscal reform program, Prof. Bret-
ton said that Bursley is "opposed
to fiscal reform no matter what
he says around election time."
He termed Swainson's tax pack-
age "a compromise" and claimed
that Republicans, even many who
say they are for fiscal reform,
would not find any viable fiscal
reform program acceptable.
Bursley said that Swainson's tax
package was inadequate to meet
the needs of the state. First, it did
not make adequate provision for
replacing local r e v e n u e lost
through the exemption of indus-
trial machinery and equipment
from local property taxes.
Second, in exempting food and
drugs from the sales tax, it upset
the formula by which funds are
given to local school districts
through return of the sales tax.
Third, the intangibles tax ought
to be eliminated completely.
And Another Thing .. .
Fourth, the personal property'
tax ought to be repealed on busi-
ness inventory, Bursley said.
He also claimed that his back-
ing of certain nuisance taxes was
in line with the Citizens for Mich-
igan tax proposals for the state in
the period prior to complete fiscal

Thant Says Missile Dismantling
To Be Completed by Tomorrow
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-The United States will resume its naval
arms quarantine of Cuba at daybreak today.
The move came last night after United Nations Acting
Secretary-General U Thant apparently had failed to win ap-
proval of Cuban Premier Fidel Castro to allow UN inspection
of missile sites.
Thant did learn, however, that all Soviet missiles will
be dismantled by tomorrow and out of Cuba soon afterwards.
The United States decision was reached by President
John F. Kennedy after a conference with his top advisers.

From personal experience, Dean
Gordon found that there is a great
deal of "intellectual satisfaction"
to be derived from legal studies.
Dean Shane noted, corresponding-

Prof. Steinheimer pointed out
that a major cause of failure in

He did not believe students to
be mature enough after three
years to specialize and should

existentialists, says that man must
learn to live this way.
Tolstoy saw that the spectacle
of nature negates order; he there-

philosophy for a more real and
elemental logic. In this attempt
Tolstoy denied the rationale of
But although the ordering of
this world is negative, moral sys-
tems degenerate and structures of
