Politi cal ictionary

What many political science students have looked for but
never found-a good resource book with" quick definitions of
important terms and resumes of court cases-has finally been
"The American lolitical Dictionary" by Professors Jack C.
Plano and Milton Greenberg of Western Michigan University
is billed as "the vocabulary of government institutions, practices,
traditions; federal, state, local" and is just that. Quick concise
definitions are given not only for terms used in political science
but for ideologies, offices and judicial interpretation.
The book is aimed at, the student; the definitions are for
those test cramming times or for those students who are in
introductory courses and need clear explanation and recall of
facts. In addition, the authors claim that the book is for the
cultivation of an "informed citizenry."
Wide Range
Professors Plano and Greenberg have divided the book into
18 categories ranging from the background of the United States
constitution to national defense to local and state government.
Among some of the more important and controversial areas
are civil liberties; parties, politics, pressure groups and elections;
government and business and government and labor.
In the sections of governmental offices the authors divided
the areas into "important agencies, important cases and nim-
portant statutes." The cases and laws covered in the latter two
sections go back to the beginning of United States history and
include the most recent 1961 cases.
Each term given also is evaluated under a separate heading:
"significance." It is here that the authors try to show the
relevance of the term to current and past political history.
The authors attempt to retain a strict political neutrality
between conservative viewpoints and liberal. Frequently, there-
fore, controversial issues are treated in a textbook manner with
very strict definitions used rather than interpretations. Even
in the significant sections the neutrality is retained and no
value judgements on the merit of either policies or. decisions
is attempted.
Governmental Agencies
Especially concise and definitive are the descriptions of
the various governmental agencies and cabinet offices. A quick
rundown of the various pacts in which the United States is
involved also points out the important facts behind the problems
of foreign policy and the relationships which are now especially
relevant to the India-China border war and the Cuban situation.
Although space does not allow for complete coverage of all
of the nuances of each agency, law or court cases, the authors
have presented the basic information in an easy to* read manner
As a supplement to the average political science, history or
economics textbook, the book will serve a useful purpose.

CMU Plans
Central Michigan University's
decision to use the American Col-
lege Testing Program a.. a place-
ment test for entering freshman
has caused some comment on the
part of high school principals who
attended the Michigan Association
of Secondary School Principals
convention in Lansing last week.
The problem of external tests-
those tests that originate for pur-
poses of admission and testing and
are handed outside the jurisdic-
tion of the high schools-bothers
both the principalshand Central's
director of admissions alike.
The multiplicity of these exter-
nal tests, which include the Merit
Test, Scholarship Qualifying Test,
National Education Development
Test and in some schools the Iowa
and California battery of tests,
places added financial strain and
time demands on the high school
Want Universal Test
Both high schools and the uni-
versity express an interest in see-
ing all the tests replaced by one
universal test.
C. Lester Luce, former presi-
dent of the association, comment-
ed that the problem was not that
Central had decided to use the
ACT but that this test adds to the
duplicity of the battery of tests
already given.
He said that there was no offi-
cial action on the part of the asso-
ciation for or against the test.
However, generally the association
feels that the ideal situation would
be one placement and admissions
test. This would save both time
and money for graduating stu-
No Irritation
The new president of the asso-
ciation, selected at the convention,
Irvin G. Wolf, principal of Den-
by High School in Detroit, com-
mented that he felt no irritation
or annoyance at the introduction
of the new test but that he was
"concerned"- with the extra bur-
den placed on students.
"Central has the right to get
information on incoming students
from the ACT. But I am unhappy
that the universities . cannot get
together to agree on one battery
of tests that they all can use,"
he said.,
Not Required;
Central's director of admissions
Austin Buchanan noted that the3
ACT is recommended to incoming
freshman but they do hot have to1
take it.1
He added that students do not
have to take the test while in high
school, although due to the stressF
of orientation periods he believed
that to be the most advisable way.I
The ACT can be taken during

Buchanan stressed that Central

ing to adopt the new form ofI

~next week, would make it a mis-
demeanor not only "to engage in,
or attempt to create any disturb-
ance, fight or quarrel in a public
place" but also to "go to or remain
at such place for the purpose of
provoking a fight or quarrel.'
Other Illegalities
It is also illegal, under the pres-
ent city charter, to "collect or
stand in crowds or engage, en-
courage or abet the collection of
persons in crowds for illegal or
mischievous purposes in any pub-
lic place."
However, the proposed law
makes it clear that it does not in-
tend to "prevent peaceful public
demonstrations in connection with
political views or public issues."
Democratic councilman Lynn
Eley moved to table the change in
the city charter, but was defeated,
8-3. Wendell E. Hulcher was the
only Republican on council to
vote with Democrats Eley and Mrs.
Eunice L. Burns.
No Public Hearing
Council also refused to hold a
public hearing on the issue. It re-
jected an amendment from Eley
to have the proposal make it illegal
only to "engage in any fight or
quarrel in a public place." The
refusual to hold a hearing and the
rejection of the amendment also
were maintained with an 8-3 vote.
According to Eley, council "is
now passing an ordinance to give
to police the power to arrest
youths or older people on their
way to the campus even though
they are not obviously carrying
City Attorney Jacob F. Fahrner
argued that the police would be
careful to have good reason to
make arrests, because they could
otherwise be sued for false arrest.
Chief of Police Rolland J.
Gainsley said that it was necessary
to have the proposed law "on the
books" in order to give "a lever to
policemen desiring to prevent vio-
lence and injuries."
Report Troops
Circle Algiers
ALGIERS ()-Algerian soldiers
and armored cars surounded gov-
ernment headquarters and several
other official buildings yesterday
in a mystery move.
The city was calm. There were
no reports of any threats against
the government. Neither was there
any official explanation for the
appearance of the troops and a
series of checks last night along
roads leading into Algiers. Some
reports said a crackdown on the
underground Social Revolutionary
Party was in progress.
About 200 heavily-armed troops
surrounded the big central gov-
ernment building this morning.
Several dozen soldiers armed with
rifles and submachine guns ap-
peared around headquarters of the
Algerian Political Bureau building
and the residence of Premier Ah-

New York Times Editorial Writer
Cheerful mediocrity, preferably
garbed in a football sweater, still'
holds greater appeal for American
teen-agers than a brilliant and
serious mind.
This was confirmed in a study
completed by the Talented Youth
Project of the Horace Mann-
Lincoln Institute of School Ex-
While anti-intellectual attitudes
among teen-agers have been
pointed out by earlier studies, the
report's special significance is in
its findings that even academically
brilliant adolescents prefer to con-
form to the "popular" traits of
well-rounded, average amiability.
Scholarly Excellence
As a result, some academically
brilliant students with high po-
tential for scholarly excellence
play down their talents in order
to become acceptable in high
school society.
The study was conducted by
Abraham J. Tannenbaum, asso-
ciation dean of the Graduate
School of Education on the study,
puts much of the blame on the
schools for lavishing at least equal
honors "on football stars, speed-
demon typists, and social butter-
flies" as on academic achievement.
"Granted, there is room for
many kinds of champions in our
society, but if so many are to be
crowned with indiscriminate en-
thusiasm by the school, it may lose
its public image as primarily a pa-
tron of intellect and creativity,"
the report warns.
Social Penalties
"The brilliant youth faces mire
serious social penalties than his
average-ability schoolmate if both
show an unusually strong pre-
occupation with study and a lack
of interest in sports. The aca-
demically outstanding high school
student, it seems, can ill afford
to earn the reputation of being
studious and non-athletic," the
report continued.
While stressing that coeduca-
tion serves valid purposes in fos-
tering "healthy boy-girl relations,,
the study charges that since girls
are found to attach even less value
to academic achievement, their

presence detracts from. the status
afforded academic brilliance.
The composite image of the
popular student in contemporary
American high schools, according
to the report, is of "a good sport"
who is "nice looking" and who is
expected to be a "good leader" but
not a "perfectionist." To be shy,
the report contends, is a major
flaw and to be a "good conversa-
tionalist" is a comparable virtue
"Cheerful" was found to be the

Jewish Attitudes
The survey's findings contra-
dicted the viewpoint that adoles-
cents with Jewish background
would prove more appreciative
than non-Jewish students of aca-
demic achievement. This belief
had been expressed by persons
who taught in schools with pre-
dominantly Jewish population and
who assisted in the survey.
"It would seem that reverence
for schooling, traditionally ass-
ciated with the Jewish people, is
not translated into higher per-
sonal regard for the academically
superior by Jewish teen-agersi,"
the study said. The "lure of ac-
ceptance" and the pressures of
teen-age judgment and standards
were found stronger than any
family traditions.
Freakish Quality
The study found a deep distrust
of the "loneliness" of the intel-
lectual. Brilliance was often equat-
ed with "a freakish quality."
The study expressed the belief
that "the typical classroom has
not succeeded, or perhaps not
shown real interest, in envelop-
ing its students with the ideas."
The study first surveyed more
than 600 high school juniors in a
middle-income high school in New
York City in 1958-59. The results
from this group were corroborated

rural communities in upper New
York State, in Denver and in an

The picture was taken from an American naval plane, on patrol north of Cuba, last Saturday. The

Meanwhile at the United Na-
tions, United States and Soviet
negotiators talked for almost six
hours yesterday on the Cuban
problem. Informed sources said
there was no change of position
on either side.
John J. McCloy, who is Presi-
dent John F. Kennedy's chief co-
ordinator , for the negotiations,
told reporters afterward he could
not predict when the differences
could be resolved but "I have
hopes they will be."
Check Dismantling
Sylvester indicated United States
reconnaissance planes have check-
ed on the dismantling of the
bombers even before they were
loaded aboard the Russian ship.
He said analyses of information
gathered by the rovernment in-
dicate that, as of last Friday, dis-
assembly of IL-28s was under way
at the San Julian airfield on the
western end of Cuba.
More than 20
The Pentagon has said that
more than 20 of the twin-engine
jet bombersswere sent to Cuba
by the Russians.
These bombers, equipped to drop
nuclear bombs on targets as far
as 750 miles from their bases,
were listed among the offensive
weapons this country demanded
be removed from Cuba.
Although agreeing to pull out
42 deep-striking ballistic missiles,
the Russians had stalled for about
three weeks on the question of
removing the bombers, too.

Finally, on Nov. 20, Kennedy
announced that Soviet Premier
Nikita Khrushchev had agreed to
withdraw the 600-mile-an-hour
bombers within 30 days.

weeks against some of Powell's activities. In addition to keeping track
