Play Discusses Values

"Macliesh's message in 'J.B.' is that reverence for life and
inter-fellowship of man is all that is left to man," Dean of Women
Deborah Bacon said yesterday at the Student Government Council-
sponsored seminar on the play.
Quoting the key closing lines of Sara - "The candles of the
Churches are out ... Blow on the coal of the Heart ... And we
shall see," Miss Bacon pointed out that this message was "in the same
general school as the Compassionate Heresy" of other modern writers
such as Camus, Faulkner and

*West Delays
Of Defiance
ern Big Three unexpectedly de-
layed yesterday notifying Russia
of their intention of defying what
a they say is a Soviet-imposed 10,-
000-foot ceiling on supply flights
to West Berlin.
Top officials gave no explana-
tion for the delay. But they in-
sisted it did not change the joint
decision to resume such flights
soon-regardless of Soviet objec-
For the second straight day, the
state department refused to con-
firm or deny reports of such an
American-British-French plan.
A spokesman, however, told a
news conference: "There is no
altitude limitation whatsoever that
we recognize."
Disregards Warning
Press officer Lincoln White, in
making 'the comment, shrugged
aside a warning from Soviet au-
thorites in Bast Germany that
such flights would "violate past
The decision to resume such
flights would amount to clear
notice to Moscow of an allied de-
termination to operate an airlift
to West Berlin with big planes in
the event the East Germans seek
to cut off land and water routes.
The four-engined 0130 turbojet,
which can carry 35,000 pounds of
cargo, would be the plane picked
to make the first test flight when
the time comes, officials said. This
plane operates best at 15,000 feet
and higher.
Would Use Bigger Plane
The 0130 planes carry nearly
twice as much cargo as the old
C54 propellor-driven skymasters
which were the mainstay of the
Allied airlift to beleaguered West
Berlin in the last Soviet blockade
a dozen years ago.
Most authorities are convinced
the Soviets will avoid making a
major showdown out of the issue.
It is believed Soviet Premier
Nikita S. Khrushchev will object,
perhaps strongly, but will avoid
any use of force lest it upset plans
for the summit meeting scheduled
in Paris May 15.
A United States note was to
have gone out Monday officially
advising the Soviets of the Allied
intention to send high flying
planes through assigned air cor-
ridors to West Berlin.
As drafted, the note was gen-
eral in nature and did not give
the time when the first such flight
twould come. This information
would have been provided later,
before takeoff, in keeping with
the Allied custom of advising So-
viet authorities in Berlin of all
such supply flights, regardless of
The delay raised the possibility
that the three governments might
decide against a formal note put-
ting the Soviets on notice. Some
authorities are known to believe
that advance notice at a local
Berlin level instead of govern-
ment-to-government level would1
be better.
Call U.S. Plan
MOSCOW WP) - Moscow radio
said yesterday the reported Allied
intention to send flights into West
Berlin above the Soviet-imposed
limit of 10,000 feet is "clearly


This school advocates the gen-
eral philosophy that "the mean-
ing of living is life itself and let
us then be true to one another
for there is nothing else," Miss
Bacon explained.
Sought Reconciliation
"The author of Job wrote 40
great chapters commenting on
the attempt to' reconcile Near
Eastern Oriental thinking with
the influx of the Greek philoso-
phy of reason.
"For the last 2,000 years we
have struggled along trying to
txmbine the philosophical and
cultural context of the Old Tes-
tament which believedthat what
God said was valid and real with
the Hellenic concept of reason
and the reality of thought."
Archibald Macliesh "poured
contemporary wine into the an-
cient bottle and it still fit into the
plot," Miss Bacon said, pointing
out that "Macliesh had an addi-
tional 2,000 years of culture to
fit into the traditional question
of Job."
Nothing in God
Armed with this 2,000 years of
seeking, Macliesh comes to the
conclusion that there is nothing
in God and that "reverence for
life itself" is the only ideal left
for man.
He proves this, Miss Bacon said,
through Sara and J.B.'s approach
to the religion of living. Sara's
was the Near Eastern approach of
the bargain religion: "We live a
good life and be thankful to God
and He owes us our happiness..."
This is the opposite of J. B., Miss
Bacon said, for he states that "It
is not a question of deserving,"
and he Just believes in life; oth-
ers term it "trusting in his luck."
However, Sara does come around
to this viewpoint when she holds
out the forsythia that blooms in
the rubbish, Miss Bacon said. This
flower represents "the regenera-
tion of life." Miss Bacon added.
Support Concept of Grace
In the following discussion, it
was pointed out that the possi-
bility of finding a "state of grace"
through reason and knowledge or
through simple faith was argued
in the Book of Job when God
spoke out of the Whirlwind. In
this scene, God silenced Job by
asking him if he knew the ex-
planations of the phenomena of
the universe.
Miss Bacon discussed the fact
that the growing knowledge of
these things was bringing man to
think he was almost as powerful
as God. And that this was a fac-
tor in destroying the God Image.

to USNSA President Donald Hoff-
Curtis Gans, National Affairs
vice-president, is currently in the

Hoffman said USNSA fully sup-,
ports the courageous and con-
structive action of students, Negro
and white, throughout the South
who have acted upon their own
initiative to change the present'
social conditions there.
"The inspiring action of these
students in attempting to change'
the mores of the community soj
that all people, regardless of race,
creed and national origin, will be
given equal treatment by all, has
spurred the USNSA to aid these
students in all ways possible," he
"We hope that students
throughout the country will sup-
port the actions of the students
from the colleges in the South so
that someday we may achieve in
this country the type of mutual
understanding and cooperation be-
tween races that is so much a part
of the fundamental precepts of
American Democracy."
Specific action by USNSA is

In Senate
WASHINGTON (--A Southern
Senator yesterday publicly de-
scribed a Supreme Court decision
as "crap" and a Northern Senator
accused Senate leaders of decep-
The harsh words flew in the
Senate chamber as the legislators
went into the second night of
round-the-clock debate on civil
rights legislation.
Tempers were starting to fray
but neither the 18-man Dixie
group orating steadily against the
bill nor the Northern civil rights
supporters showed signs of giving
The denunciation of the Su-
preme Court's decision of Monday,
upholding the 1957 civil rights
law, came from Mississippi Demo-
cratic Sen. James O. Eastland.
Asks To Publish Decision
Sen. Everett M. Dirksen of Illi-
nois, the GOP leader, asked unani-
mous consent to have the Court's
decision printed in the Daily Con-
gressional Record.
"If that's a decision of the
United States Supreme Court it's
not worth printing, and I object,"
Eastland declared. Dirksen re-
peated his request moments later.
"I don't want this record clut-
tered with such crap," Eastland
snapped. The audience in the pub-
lic gallery tittered.
Nearly two hours later Eastland
relented and allowed Dirksen to
have the Supreme Court decision
into the Record
The verbal volley against the
party leaders came from Sen. Paul
Douglas (D-Ill), a civil rights
advocate after he attempted to
offer an amendment aimed at pro-
moting integration of whites and
Negroes in schools.
He was told that under a "gen-
tlemen's agreement" announced by
the leadership Monday he could
not offer an amendment without
unanimous consent. Douglas ob-
jected that he did not so under-
stand the agreement but the chair
held unanimous consent necessary.-
Denounced Procedure
Douglas then denounced the
agreement and said "the result of
this elaborate proposition was
simple deception."
"There was no deception in-
volved, Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson,
(D-Tex.) said. He said the agree-
ment had been made abundantly
clear when it was announced.
In the end peace was restored-
at least temporarily-when Doug-
las got his amendment in by
unanimous consent. That paved
the way for a speech by Eastland
running far into the night.
For the second night in a row,
Senators bedded down in the
cloakrooms, offices and other spots
to be handy for the quorum calls
normal in filibuster strategy.,

Michigan leers Beaten
In Rugged Contest, 4-2
Michigan's Wolverines closed out the home hockey season last
night by dropping a 4-2 decision to Denver, but managed to show a
brand of hockey that will bring fans back for more next year.
Coach Al Renfrew's icers will close out the current campaign
on the road this weekend at North Dakota. At least one win is a
must if the Wolverines hope to make the Western Collegiate Hockey
Association playoffs.
Pioneers Scared
After taking an 8-1 pasting on the chin Monday night, the
Wolverines roared back to scare the invading Pioneers with the
toughest contest of their four game invasion of the state.
Before beating Michigan Monday, Denver had spent the week-
end rolling over Michigan State, 5-0 and 5-1.
But it was a new team that Michigan put on the ice last night,
in more ways than one. Coach Renfrew pulled out all the stops as
his charges battled what is perhaps the best college hockey team in
the country to a standstill - almost.
Lineup Juggled
For the first time this season. Renfrew started the sophomore
line of Red Berenson, Joe Lunghamer and Gerry Kolb. He also moved
Dale MacDonald onto a line with Bob White and Steve Bochen and
teamed Gary Mattson with sophs Al Hinnegan and Carl White. Ed
SMateka's injury-caused absence
forced Renfrew to go with three

are expected to cover 22 per
cent of this amount.
Need Pay Increase
On the other hand, should the
budget prove to be inadequate,
tuitions will go up to provide
money for faculty pay increases.
Niehuss said an increase of be-
tween $3.5 and $4 million was
necessary to prevent damage to
the University through faculty
There is also a strong feeling
among many legislators for a
boost in, fees to help cover in-
creasing University expenses
"I don't know whether we will
get the amount we are asking
from the Legislature or not," Nie-
buss said. He pointed out that for
the past few years the University
budget has been cut, and noted
that the state's income is still lim-
Invite Committee
"We invited the Senate Appro-
priations Committee to come
down here to study the situation
for themselves," Niehuss said. It
is not yet known whether the
committee will accept the invita-
tion or not.
The University budget calls for
$38 million from the Legislature,
$10 million from student fees and
about $2 million from other
sources, totaling $50 million, Nie-
huss said. This is an $8 million
increase over last year's operat-
ing budget, but only $5 million
more is to be contributed by the
state. The $3 million difference
must come from other sources,
one of which is tuition. Other
small sources of income are ex-
pected to round out the figure.
No Outlay Discussion
There was almost no discus-
'sion of capital outlay," Niehuss
said. It was brought out, how-
ever, that for recruiting faculty,
working space - both offices and
laboratory facilities -- is as im-
portant as salary. "There is more
leeway on classrooms," he said,
"since we can always schedule
more classes in the afternoon and
on Saturdays.,
Toss Stones
In Panama
PANAMA W) - Panamanian
youths threw stones through win-
dows in the United States Inf or-
mation Agency's offices yesterday
during Panama's high-spirited
pre-Lenten carnival.
Panamanian police, on the look-
out for a threatened repetition of
the march on the United States
Canal Zone that touched off
clashes with Canal Zone police
and troops last November, arrested
eight anti-American agitators in
another part of the city.
None of the boys who stoned the
USIA offices was caught.
The colorful carnival parade
climaxing the annual four-day
celebrations later passed USIA on
the way through the city.
The parade went through the
Canal Zone at the boundary line
without incident. Most of the
marchers, exhausted by the eight-
mile hike through the city, had
dropped out by the time the par-
ade reached the Canal Zone.

15 Per Cent Rise
Residents, Non-Residents To Pa
For Higher Cost of Education
Tuition boosts of 15 to 20 per cent are probably in store
for University students beginning this fall.
Caught between two possibilities for an increase, there
is only limited hope that students will not be faced with an
increase of $25 for residents of Michigan and $60 for out-of-
state students.
On the qne hand, tuitions have traditionally covered 22
per cent of the University budget, according to Vice-Presi-
dent and Dean of Faculties Marvin L. Niehuss. If this year's
budget request for an appropriation increase of $5 million is
granted, either in whole or for the most part, student fees

Niehuss Predicts

Judic Alters
Auto" Rules
Joint Judiciary Council Chair-
man Michael Sklar, '60, last night
announced that the Council is
presently using a new tria'meth-
od of adjudicating first-violation
driving cases.
In contrast with the previous
method of having Joint Judie
hear each individual case, the
Dean's office concerned will now
send a form letter to any student
reported to them by the Univer-
sity patrol or the Ann Arbor po-
lice to be in violation.
This letter will offer the ac-
cused student the choice of( pay-
ing a specified fine for the par-
ticular offense involved or of ap-
pealing to the Council for a hear-
ing, which will automatically be
granted if requested.
This would, Sklar said, give the
student concerned the opportunity
to 'pay a fine if he knows himself
to be in violation, or to have a
hearing if he feels himself not in
violation or feels that there were
mitigating circumstances."
A definite fine schedule has
been established based on Council
precedent in each particular type
of case.
Sklar said "the Council has felt
that in many cases it is appar-
ent to both the University and the
accused that the violation has
been committed and that adjudi-
cation of the case could be
handled in a more efficient man-
ner than the past practice of
hearing each case."
Stressing that this method is
used only for first offences, Sklar
said that Joint Judie also felt
that its role as a peer counseling
body is not utilized in simple first
violations where the accused was
perfectly aware of his violation
and where there were no extenu-
ating circumstances.
Those accused of violations who
would be second offenders will all
still be tried before Joint Judic.
The Council hopes that the
new system, still on a trial basis,
will work for the benefit of both
the accused and the Council in
lessening time wasted and in aid-
ing equity, Sklar said.

Professor, Lawyer Revii

The University cannot delegate
its conscience to a small group of
men who are not supported when
they act as conscience, Prof. Ed-
win E. Moise of the mathematics
department told the Political Is-
sues Club last night.
Prof. Moise and attorney Eugene
Douvan treated the H. Chandler
Davis case from academic and
legal orientations respectively, but
both stressed the courage of Davis'
decision to stand on principle.
Davis, a University mathematics
instructor, was convicted of con-
tempt of Congress for refusing to
answer questions of the House
Un-American Activities Commit-
tee regarding his past political be-
liefs and associations. He was sus-
pended from his University job on
the day of the hearing and later
fired without severance pay.
Davis appeared before the House

zhe suopoena reacnea mu, ro -
Moise said, but he chose not to.
The Davis case demonstrates
suspicion of the academic com-
munity, according to Prof. Moise.
Even if society as a whole re-
stricts normal intercourse of ideas,
he declared, universities should
be islands of freedom "so that
least someone can think."

The first period was the most
satisfying for the 2,000-plus parti-
sans as the Wolverines pressed
the attack and outshot Denver for
the only time in the six periods
played with them this week.
Both teams' rushes were good
but this was the period for de-
fensemen to shine as the backmen
for both teams gave great sup-
port, stopping potential scoring
thrusts at the blue lines with
stick checks.
Denver got the first chance to'
score when a penalty gave them
a power play opportunity at 11:59.
But Michigan rode this one out,
and a half a minute after John'
Palenstein vacated the penalty,
box, the Wolverines drove in to
