US., Russians Deadlock on Removal of ol


Negotiators Disagree,
On Inspection Issue,
Reds Vow To Take Out All Missiles
By Monday, Ask Halt of Blockade
UNITED NATIONS (AP)-The United States and the Soviet
Union failed last night to reach agreement on removal of Soviet
jet bombers from Cuba.
The deadlock on that issue and on-site inspection persisted as
informed sources reported that the Soviet Union had told the United
States all Soviet missiles will be out of Cuba by Monday and there
will be no need for United States
naval inspection of outbound Sov-
iet ships after that date.
Diplomatic sources meanwhile
quoted Cuban Ambassador Carlos
Lechuga as saying Cuba now is
the owner of Soviet planes on the
island and will not give them up.

amined the question of graduate
representation in Student Govern-

The recommendation on USNSA
was introduced by Michael Rosen,
who declared that if major uni-

to withdraw from the organization,
the only power students in this
country possess will be lost.
GSC President Edwin Sasaki
spoke on the plans to reorganize
representation on SGC which he
submitted at Wednesday night's
SGC meeting. His plan called for
an SGC composed of representa-

"We have taken . our position
because we feel it will help allev-

which presently plagues SGC," he
In discussion of the tuition raise
which came last spring, it was
pointed out that the tuition for a
student getting his doctorate is
now higher at the University than
at Harvard, Southern California,

the United Arab Republic.
United States Ambassador Adlai
CE. Stevenson and Soviet Deputy
Foregin Minister to the United
Nations, Vasily V. Kuznetsov and
their advisors conferred for more
than three hours at the Soviet
mission to the United Nations.
Amid reports that the Soviet
Union was hardening its position
in the negotiations, Stevenson told
a reporter afterward that "We
had another long talk about the
unresolved issues. Three are sev-
eral outstanding issues."

included on-site inspection of the
dismantling of Soviet missile bases
and the removal of Soviet jet
bombers, he replied in the affirm-
He added that the negotiators
are still arguing about the removal
of the 20 or more jet bombers.
Asked if the Russians were in-
sisting upon Cuban Prime Minister
Fidel Castro's "five point" de-
mands, which include withdrawal
of the United States from the
Guantanamo Naval Base, Steven-
son said, "They hammer on all
those things."
Skip Talks
Informed about reports that the
Soviet Union wanted a firmer
guarantee against invasion of
Cuba, Stevenson commented that,
the guarantee was set out in Presi-
dent John F. Kennedy's Oct. 27'
letter to Soviet Premier Nikita S.
In the missiles situation, the
defense department announced
that aerial reconnaissance indi-
cates that all known medium-

dismantled and the missile equip-
ment loaded on Soviet cargo ships.

S Questionnaire Posed
By Assembly, IQC
Almost two-thirds of the stu-
dents presently in the University's
residence hall system are willing to
live in co-educational housing.
This is the most important sin-
gle finding of a questionnaire poll
jointly sponsored by Interquad-
rangle Council, Assembly Associa-
tion, and the Office of Student
Affairs and sent to 10 per cent of
dormitory and quadrangle resi-
IQC Vice-President Robert Le-
vine, '63, submitted the results of
the poll to the Residence Halls
Board of Governors yesterday.3
General Views
The first question of the poll
asked, "What is your general at-
titude toward the idea of your liv-
ing in a co-educational residence
hall next year? (Assume that you
were to return to residence halls.)"
Of the 606 students responding
to the poll, 18.5 per cent "strong-
ly preferred" co-educational liv-
ing, 24.9 per cent indicated a
"somewhat" preference, and 20.0
per cent replied they would not
A total of 27.6 per cent said they
would "rather not" participate in
the experiment, and only 9.1 per
cent "would refuse to live in a co-
ed, hall."
Survey Sample
Some of the groups included in
the total sample, and the percent-
age of each indicating preference
or lack of disfavor were: men,
75.6; women, 52.5; South Quad-
rangle residents, 70.3; Markley res-
idents, 50.4; freshmen, 67.0; soph-
omores, 61.0; juniors, 60.0; seniors,
Of the respondents indicating a
desire to return to the residence
halls next year, 62.5 per cent indi-
cated a lack of opposition to liv-
ing in co-ed facilities.
The residents were then asked
to assume some halls were made
co-educational, and that they
were returning to the system next1
year. Of the total respondents, 28.4
per cent said they were "wing

For Co-Educational

'Old Pros'

View Theatre

Maurice Evans Helen Hayes

Relaxing from the rigors of touring 69 cities
across the country in 19 weeks, Maurice Evans
thoughtfully formulated the mathematical pro-
porting of the shrinking number of plays eman-
ating from Broadway as being directly equiva-
lent to the number of theatres converted into
parking lots.
"The decentralization of the theatre is abso-
lutely essential. The regional theatres must pro-
vide their own entertainment," Evans comment-
ed, adding that he hoped the theatres which
reach such high standards that "instead of plays
emanating from Broadway, traffic will be in
The Shakespearean actor feels that he and
Helen Hayes are demonstrating, with "A Pro-
gram for Two Players," how Broadway has out-
priced itself. They are doing the program without
properties and very little scenery-"almost going
back to the days when the plague hit London
and actors went on with little more than the
planks of the stage."
Too Many Unions
The decay of Broadway is almost entirely due
to economic problems, as Evans sees it. "Broad-
way is bedevilled by too many unions. You throw
a bone to one and the next one requires a whole
joint," he ventured.
He opposes federal subsidy of theatres, saying
that "subsidy always brings evil in its turn. It
is a compromise because there will be a measure
of censorship."
Evans has encouraged the presentation of
Shakespeare on television. "This is the only way
full-scale Shakespeare can be widely distributed
to the public. I hoped it would be the total
substitute for touring theatres but the sad con-
clusion is that it is not. There is no substitute
for flesh and blood contact," he said.
Easy Come, Easy Go
Reflecting on the technical aspects of perform-
ing Shakespeare, Evans noted that "Shakespeare
is easy to learn because of the blank verse
rhythm. But if you make a mistake, you feel
you've burped in public." Conversely, in contem-
porary drama, he thinks that an actor can im-
provise, possibly without even the playwright
noticing the change.
Evans believes that Shakespeare will survive
for at least another 300 years. He sees the
dramatist's greatness primarily in his "unpar-
alled gift of phrase," calling him the "greatest
poet of all."
"Young people are not exposed to Shakespeare
except through television and foreign companies.
It is essential that each generation hears Shake-
speare aloud.
"This might offset the poor impression most
students get of the bard when they read him
in the classroom," Evans professed. He suggested
that students stage scenes in class "which brings
the play alive as no amount of study can do."

Looking forward, after 55 years in the theatre,
the first lady of American theatre, Helen Hayes,
admitted that she seems to be all alone in her
optimism for the future of the American stage.
Sardonically, she recalled "the good old Gold-
en Days" of the 1920's, with such productions
as "Up in Mabel's Room" and "Gertie's Garter."
The fine presentations of the '20's were not on
Broadway but in Greenwich Village, the counter-
part to present off-Broadway, where playwrights
such as Eugene O'Neill were being performed.
Today, she says, the real hope for the Ameri-
can theatre, especially the road show, lies with
the universities. "If your experiment works and
is taken up by other state universities, we can
hope for a return to the road. Won't the theatre
be forever grateful," she exclaimed.
Break Down Barriers
"The slavishness of the actors to the idea of
New York theatre is beginning to break," Miss
Hayes believes. She noted good young actors were
willing to work away from Broadway, on the
peripheral areas, because "they just want to
Praising the Association of Producing Artists
as a fine group of performers about which she
is very enthusiastic, Miss Hayes expressed the
hope that "other universities will follow your
fine example."
Honored this past year as America's touring
cultural ambassador, Miss Hayes took a reper-
toire of three plays on tour of 28 European,
South American and Middle Eastern countries
for the State Department. Not only did she rep-
resent the United States as a foremost actress,
but she also attended numerous receptions, press
conferences and meetings with artists in her
ambassadorial role.
Greece Award
Happily recalling the barrage of medals she
received while todring, Miss Hayes laughingly
referred to the medal which the King of Greece
handed her casually, saying she might want it
as a souvenir.
In Finland she received a medal especially
given for artistic achievement by the govern-
ment, which was presented to her by the daugh-
ter of the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius.
Often referred to as a born actress, Miss Hayes
feels that "every child is Ea born actor. Young-
sters have that great gift of make believe. The
trick is to retain it once they grow up."
Grow with Age
Miss Hayes, who began in the theatre in 1905
as bonny Prince Charles, explained that "as you
get older you have to acquire the mechanical
techniques to communicate your talent."
She recalled her own rigorous training pro-
gram which included the orthodox courses in
voice and body movements as well as boxing les-
sons and fencing. "When I began to grow up I
realized I must stop being cute and do something
about my talent," she said.

Board Splits
On Division.
Of Buildings
Lewis Asks Decision
Formulated on Basis
Of Women's Privacy
In a special meeting yesterday
the Residence Halls Board of Gov-
ernors unanimously decided that
South Quadrangle and Mary
Markley Hall will be the buildings
involved in next fall's co-educa-
tional housing program.
Coming on a motion by Prof.
Frank X. Braun of the German
department the decision provides
for reconsideration of the board's
decision if "radical developments,
financial or otherwise," alter the
present feelings of the board.
No decision has been reached
concerning how the two buildings
will be divided. Interquadrangle
Council President Robert Geary,
'63, recommended a vertical divi-
sion of the H-shaped quadrangle,
with women occupying all eight
floors in their half of the biuld-
ing. Vice-President for Student
Affairs James A. Lewis instead
favored a horizontal division, with
the entire top four floors given
over to women.
Asks Voice
Geary, in a heated discussion,
asked that residents and staff
members of the two halls be con-
sulted before a decision is reached
on which houses shall be moved..
"I think I should have a voice
in which houses 'are chosen. I
think this is part of my respon-
sibility," he said.
Lewis insisted that administra-
tive concerns were of primary im-
portance, and said such a decision
will be made on the basis of "pri-
vacy and security" for the women
involved in the program. He agreed
that the students involved "should
be consulted."

This student committee, headed
by IQC Vice-President Robert Le-
vine, '63, and Assembly First Vice-
President Joyce Prosser, '63, sug-
gested that South Quadrangle's
Huber, Kelsey and Van Tyne
houses be moved to Markley, and
that three of four Markley houses
-Seeley, Bush, Hunt and Thron-
son-be moved to the men's dorm,
"the fourth being dissolved or be-
coming a men's house."
Also under consideration for
the program were East Quadrangle
and Alice Lloyd dormitory. An ad-
ministration committee has been
studying the financial aspects of
both plans. Yesterday, committee
chairman Franklin C. Shiel, direc-
tor of Service Enterprises, reported
the per-student cost of this plan
would be about 10 per cent greater
than the cost of the South Quad-
Markley move.
Mixed Feelings
He said costs for the pilot pro-
gram included the provision of
such special facilities for women
as lounges, laundry facilities, hair-
drying arrangements, changes in
bathrooms and special "corridor
lounges" or "workrooms," to make
living conditions the same as those

at Markley.
Geary called a number of the
proposed changes "ridiculous," and
said there was no reason why
women who moved to South Quad
should have "every little thing
they have now." He suggested the
