Crisis Soon
BONN (R)~ - Chancellor Konrad
Adenauer was reported yesterday
on the verge of patching up his
coalition government and insuring
his stay in office up to the 1965
general election.
Sources in both parties said
agreement may be reached today-
*in the third round or negotiations
on a new government-on a re-
newed coalition between Adenau-
er's mid-road Christian Democrats
and the right-wing Free Demo-
cratic Party.
The Free Democrats reportedly
agreed to settle for resumption of
the old coalition that broke up
Nov. 20, and to renew their agree-
ment that the 6-year-old Chan-
cellor may stay in office until
shortly before the 1965 general
election.
However, smoothing over of the
rift caused by the Der Spiegel af-
fair still left bad blood between
the two parties. There was little
disposition in Bonn to consider the
Adenauer government's troubles
ended.
Der Spiegel reported the release
yesterday of its publishing dire-
tor,'Hans Detlev Becker, one of
eight persons arrested on suspi-
cion of treason in connection with
articles published in the news
magazine. No reason was given for
his release.
It was reported Adenauer's ac-
tion so irked te socialists that
a majority of their Bundestag
members decided it would be im-
possible to form a coalition un-
der him.
There had been pressure on
Adenauer from all parties to re-
sign next year. This stemmed from
resentment over his one-man style
of governing, concern about his
age and the uproar over arrests of
the publisher and four editors of
the news magazine.
The Free Democrats succeeded
in forcing the ouster of Adenau-
er's defense minister, Franz Josef
Strauss. e was widely regarded
as having initiated the arrests in
a vengeful moveagainst the mag-
azine, which often had criticized
him.
SGC Approves
Ross Motion
On Principles
By DENISE WACKER
Student Government Council
Wednesday night passed a motion
approving the general aims of a
seven-section proposal intended to
end discrimination in fraternities
and sororities.
After a committee of the whole
discussion, SGC approved a mo-
tion by Council member Robert
Ross, 63, which stated that:
"Council notes the receipt of the
Committee on Membership's mem-
orandum of December. In that
memorandum, the committee asks
Councl to endorse seven proposals.
Some of these actions by their na-
ture must be pursued by the com-
mittee and brought to Council, if
the committee wishes in more com-
plete form, before Council can
judge their merits adequately.
"However, they are all reason-
able as prospectivecourses of ac-
tion and are within the legitimate
scope of the committee's power.
"SGC is sympathetic to the
committee's desire of more speed
and decisiveness in the area of
membership selectionnin student
organizations. Council pledges it-
self to act with all possible speed
on any case brought to it by the

Committee on Membership.

Another crisis Newton faced

Committee
Exonerates
DG of Bias
By RONALD WILTON
The faculty of the University of
Visconsin has voted to approve a
uman Rights Committee recom-
endation and allow Delta Gam-
a sorority to remain on campus.
The committee is also investi-
ating Kappa Sigma fraternity.
,hose national recently withdrew
cognition from the fraternity's
warthmore chapter, Jeff Green-
eld, editor of the Wisconsin Daily
irdinal reported last night.
"As late as Monday night the
immittee was still of the- opinion
hat Delta Gamma should be bar-
d," he said. However, the follow-
g events changed their minds.
Beloit Spark
The first was a resolution by
e Wisconsin DG chapter which
ked that the Beloit chapter,
hose suspension had touched off
e Wisconsin committee's inves-
ration, be reinstated by the na-
onal.
The second was a policy state-
ient included in a letter by Na-
bnal DG President Mrs. Kenneth
Groves. It said that the DG na-'
onal has "no policy based upon
ce, color, creed or national ori-
n, either by constitution, bylaw,
le or otherwise written or oral."I
Pledge Policy
It went on to say that "Delta
amma of this university or any
Cher chapter of the sorority may
edge girls without regard to race,
lor, creed or national origin
thout wear of any disciplinary
tion by the national."
According to Prof. Clarence
imstead of the Rights Committee
ose were the two major reasons
r reversing the committee's rec-
nmendation of Sept. 21 which
lled for the banning of DG from
mpus.
The reason for the suspension of
e Kappa Sigma chapter at
warthmore was given by the na-
nal as "low grades." The chap-
L reported that they were drop-
d because of their refusal to go
ong with a "gentleman's agree-
ent" which bars Negroes and
ws from membership.

NEW DELHI ()-Frontline re-
ports indicated yesterday Red
China had not lived up complete-
ly to its pledge to withdraw its
troops from advanced positions
along the disputed Himalayan bor-
der.
Prime Minister Jawaharlal Neh-
ru said India is keeping its guard
up.
Indian ambulance drivers re-
ported they had seen an estimated
300 Red Chinese troops scattered
in holes in the forests and moun-
tains along a road on the north-
east frontier.
In New Delhi, a government
spokesman said Peking itself hint-
ed that Communist forces were
still holding pre-withdrawal posi-
tions in Ladakh on the northwest
frontier.
These reports seemed to bear
out Nehru's report to Parliament
Monday that the Red Chinese had
merely thinned out their advanced
forces but had not wholly with-
drawn them as they said they
would do starting last Saturday.
Indian troops have not advanced
toward the Chinese positions, ap-
parently holding back so as not
to break the Chinese cease-fire
imposed Nov. 22 as a forerunner
to withdrawals.
In a news conference Nehru said
he does not see the possibility of
American troops becoming involv-
ed in India's border conflict with
China but that some advisers may
be requested.

CAN'T GET HOME:
Hatchers Land in Chicago
By GAIL EVANS

Special To The Daily
METROPOLITAN AIRPORT-University President and Mrs.
Harlan Hatcher circled the snow-bound airport for well over an
hour before their flight from New York was shuttled off to Chicago
late last night.
The Hatcher party will return to Ann Arbor this morning.
The Hatchers landed in New York yesterday after a seven-week
trip to the Far East. At a news conference President Hatcher com-
mented on the India-China crisis.
He predicted that Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru can-
not "suddenly turn against Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev"
and that "he will be following a wily policy to maintain friendly
relations with the Soviet Union, but there is no illusion in India
about receiving any real help from Russia."
He emphasized India's gratitude to the United States for its
support. President Hatcher observed that the "impact of the border
war in India was similar to the effect on us of Pearl Harbor."
Since leaving the University on Oct. 17, President Hatcher has
visited Japan, Formosa, the Philippines, Thailand, India, Egypt, Italy
and Spain. He will give a public report to the University on inter-
national observations at 3 p.m. today in Hill Aud.
President Hatcher was in Toyko when the Cuban crisis began.
He said that the Japanese gave the impression that they felt "it's.
about time". the United States took action.

Eastman Condemns Credit-Hour Gradi

By JUDITH BLEIER
Associate City Editor
The executive committee of Interfraternity Council last night
ted to fine Alpha Tau Omega fraternity $500 and revoke pledging
Ivileges for one rushing period due to illegal hazing activities.
The prevention of pledging activities, as well as $250 of the fine,
ll be suspended for one year, IFC Administrative Vice-President
ederick Riecker, '63, reported.
No details of the case are available, he said, but the decision of
e executive committee was brought about by "legitimate com-
'plaints." It is a step in the frater-

By RONALD MARTINEZ
Prof. Arthur M. Eastman of the
English department yesterday con-
demned the University's credit-
hour grading system as an "in-
humane, absurd and wretched
mechanism" and called for its abo-
lition.
Speaking at a meeting of the
literary college Steering Commit-
tee, Prof. Eastman asserted that
the only virtue of the credit-hour
system is its "academic efficien-
cy," which permits the University
to judge the level of a student's
achievement by the grade points
he accumulates for hours in class.
Prof. Eastman said that he was
"not at all concerned with what
the registrar's office has to cope
with-they are made for us and
not we for them."
Cruelly Insensitive
Prof. Eastman said that "label-
ing the system 'adult' often means
being cruelly insensitive to human
needs."
Reds Retreat
From Yin gko
TOKYA ()-Chinese Commun-
ist troops withdrew Dec. 1 from
Yingko Pass in the eastern sector
of the disputed China-India bor-
der area to north of the Tanchia-
pani River, the New China News
Agency said yesterday.
Its delayed dispatched from
Lhasa, Tibet, did not say how far
the troops actually withdrew.

Pointing to the danger of "quan-
titive equalizing" in evaluating the
student's work by hours of credit
for each course, Prof. Eastman
suggested the alternative of com-
prehensive examinations, to be
given before the student enters an
area of concentration at the end
of two years and across "shoulder
areas as well as the field of con-
centration" at the end of the stu-
dent's four-year undergraduate
work.
In answer to comments by As-
sociate Dean James H. Robertson
of the literary college and Prof.
Otto G. Graf, honors council di-
rector, who raised questions about
possibly "anxiety" and a high rate
of failure resulting from such com-
prehensive examinations, Prof.
Eastman suggested that "informal
grades" be maintained throughout
the student's academic career.
Less Information
He added "I am willing to enter
an area where we have less con-
crete information about the indi-
vidual course work of the student,
until his education is completed,
than we have now."
Questioned by steering commit-
tee chairman Jerold Lax, '63, who
asked whether replacing the cred-
it-hour system with examinations
might "leave out a general picture
of the actual work done," Prof.
Eastman said that he did not wish
to abolish grades entirely, an ac-
tion which he felt "caused chaos
at the University of Chicago in the
1930's;" but simply to end the
grading of individual courses on a
credit-hour basis.

He felt that the failure o

Riecker noted.
Within Authority
The executive committee in last
night's decision was acting in its
authority to handle disciplinary
matters concerning violations of
IFC bylaws governing rushing and
pledging.
The penalty dealt to ATO is
the maximum allowed by the by-
laws on pledging.
In reaching its decision, the
committee took into consideration
Article Three, Sections Two and
Six of the pledging bylaws, Rieck-
er said.
No Mistreatment
Section Two states that "no man
under any circumstances shall be
given physical mistreatment dur-
ing his pledge period."
The sixth section maintains that
"any unified pledge activity which
results in public disfavor on the
fraternity system or does physical
harm or damage to fraternity
houses, thereof, and is subsequent-
ly referred to the executive com-
mittee by the Office of Student
Affairs, is a violation of these by-
laws."
In other action the committee
voted to invite Vice-President for
Student Affairs James A. Lewis to
attend an executive committee
meeting and to follow up his visit
by considering a proposal to liber-
alize women's visiting hours in
fraternities if a favorable revision
of women's visiting hours does not
occur before the Christmas recess.

UN SUPPORT:
jThomas Calls for World Peace

By MALINDA BERRY
Six-time Socialist candidate for
President Norman Thomas last
night called for Americans to sup-
port the United Nations on the
side of "that freedom of man
which no kind of material bene-
fits can accrue in this atmosphere
of terror."
Since we are now living under
the shadow of nuclear war, this
world will not have the centuries
that Western Europe had to mod-
ernize, Thomas said.
He spoke at a Michigan Union
conference sponsored by the In-
stitute for Labor-Management Re-
lations on the role of the UN in
the changing world.
War or Mankind
At this point we "cannot de-
clare nuclear war without de-
claring war on all minkind."

third of the Americans who are
living at a sub-standard level, he
said.
"It is with a real sense of won-
der that I look at what the
United Nations has done in this
strife and poverty-torn world
with the charter that it has.
Arms Control
"I would like to see the United
Nations set up an authority on
disarmament in which the power
of the nations is somewhat rela-
tive to the facts of life," the ac-
knowledgement of power as it
really exists.
This authority would be an out-
growth of the United Nations
which would leave the body with
its theory of one nation, one vote,
but give the authority over nu-
clear weapons to the nations
which have it.

This is not to deny the good
power of nationalism which has
been worthwhile in the battle
against colonialism, Thomas said,
but it is impossible to lead states
intent on their sovereignty in this
world of destructive weapons."
But the UN cannot just rep-
resent the righteous for three
reasons, he noted.
"I'm not sure there are enough
righteous nations; I don't know
who would define righteous; and
we still have to live with un-
righteous neighbors." The UN
cannot reform by non-recognition.
Its inclusiveness has enormous
value.
Role of UN
"I was glad to see the role of
the United Nations in the Cuban
episode. The UN should be more
