Leftist Student Group Mars Arrival
With Sign-Waving Demonstration
MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay (4)-Tear gas, police sabres and fire
4 hoses were used today against leftist students who put on two hostile
demonstrations to mar an otherwise friendly reception for President
Dwight D. Eisenhower.
The President himself got a light whiff of the tear gas, but
referred to the trouble as "a very small thing." One student was shot
in the foot and witnesses said "a lot of people were hurt" in one
clash between police and the students.
Thousands of Uruguayans lined the motorcade route from Car-
rasco airport and unfurled homemade banners of greeting. The

Recognition
Granted PI
By JEAN SPENCER
Student Government Council
conditionally recognized the Po-
litical Issues Club and calendared
a conference on "Problems of Dis-
crimination in the North" planned
by the PIC for Apr. 28 to May 1.
Affiliation of the PIC with the
national Students for Democratic
Society was approved. The SDS is
a student branch of the League
for Industrial Democrats, and the
recognition of the PIC stipulated
that the PIC constitution state
this connection.
It was also proposed that the
PIC be directed to change its name
to one "more commensurate with
the real Purpose" of the club, and
that a copy of the LID constitu-
tion be distributed to every new'
member of the PIC. Rationale for
these proposed conditions for rec-
ognition said that the national
organizations are advocates of so-
cialism.
Assertion False
This assertion was termed
"blatantly false" by Al Haber, '60,
who is a member both of SGC and
Move Ball
The Anti-Military Ball to be
sponsored Friday by the Young
Friends will not be held in the
Union as previously approved
by Student Government Coun-
Cii.
Objection had been received
by the Council Prof the chair-
man of the ROTC Military Ball
scheduled for the same date
in the Union Ballroom, assert-
ing that the Anti-Military Ball
or Peacemakers' Prance would
"interfere with the formality"
of the Military Ball.
SGC, rescinding their ap-
proval of the place of the
dance, will pay for an adver-
tisement of the change in
place when it is determined
where the Anti-Military Ball
will be held.
the PIC, and these two proposed
conditions were deleted from the
motion.
The conference on discrimina-
tion in the north will be sponsored
jointly by the PIC and the SDS.
In other consideration of dis-
crimination, the Council devoted
one and a half hours to further
discussion of proposed regulations
in the area of restrictive member-
ship practices.
The Council decided not to give
further consideration to Phil
Zook's motion to adopt regulations
on restrictive practices and con-
trol of membership selection.
In speaking for his motion, Phil
Zook, '60, said that his regulation
was intended to form a basis for
detailed procedure in handling
groups that do not meet SGC rec-
ognition criteria.
A major objection to this mo-
tion was its attempt to consider a'
proposal of a regulation without.
outlining a procedure for imple-
menting it.
"Objection
Objection was also raised re-
garding the word "disciplinary,"
describing SGC action on evidence
that an organization prohibited
membership on discriminatory
bases. Members felt the word
connoted a policy of penalizing
offending groups rather than
working for elimination of dis-
crimination as a whole.
The Council continued discus-
sion on the Haber-Miller motion,

warmth of the reception here in
general equaled or surpassed the
enthusiasm generated by his Asian
tour last December.
Begins Program
The President went ahead with
a program that began at the air-
port with an abrazo from Benito
Nardone, the president of the
country's governing council. This
traditional Latin American em-
brace of friendship was the first
Eisenhower has received on his
visits to four South American
countries.
In an address to congress yes-
terday he told Uruguayans that
Americans have watched the de-
velopment "of democratic institu-
tions in this country "with un-
bounded admiration."
The President was greeted by a
vast, friendly throng when he
arrived to deliver his speech.
Display Sign
But a few dissenters displayed a
sign saying "imperialism no, sov-
ereignty yes" and there were a
couple of shouts for Prime Mins-
ter Fidel Castro of Cuba.
Leftist elements in the student
body at the University of Monte-
video jeered Vice-President Rich-
ard M. Nixon on his visit here two
years ago. Uruguayan officials two
weeks ago had expressed fear of
demonstrations against Eisen-
hower over the Chessman case.
That led United States State De-
partment officials to send a notej
to California Gov. Edmund G.
Brown, who gave the kidnaper
Caryl Chessman a stay of execu-,
tion.I
The first incident yesterday oc-
curred just before the Eisenhower
motorcade reached the school of
architecture of the University of
Montevideo in Midtown.
Report Injuries
Fists and clubs flew, and sev-
eral students were reported in-
jured by sabre cuts.
A policeman drew his pistol and
fired at the ground. The shot
richocheted and struck a demon-
strator in the foot, a witness said.
Fire hoses were unlimbered' to
knock down a 150-foot banner the
students had stretched up. Many
students were drenched. The ban-
ner proclaimed: "Down with Yan-
kee imperialism in Latin America."
Protest 'Deliverance'
The leftist students federation
has protested the Eisenhower visit
as showing the "deliverance" of
Uruguay into the hands of Wall
Street.
Tear gas was used to disperse,
400 more students who barricaded
themselves in the main university'
building which the President
passed later.
As the motorcade drew near,
police opened up with their tear
gas guns to drive back from the
windows students who were chant-
ing "Cuba yes, Yankees no" in
Spanish.

'To Consider
IHC Changes
The Inter-House Council Presi-
dium will meet to consider the
proposed new revised constitution
today.
The meeting, to be held at 9
p.m. in the Student Activities
Bldg., comes only two weeks after
the Presidium made its recom-
mendations to the constitutional
committee.
The new constitution embodies
an earlier plan revision and sug-
gestions made at the earlier meet-
ing. If ultimately radified the
existing IHC will be replaced with
an Inter-Quadrangle Council.
The new organization would in-
clude three officers, chairmen of
standing committees and two rep-
resentatives from each quad. One
of the representatives from each
quad will be its president.
Besides this change, IHC would
radically alter the election proce-
dure for officers.

BUDGET:
Officials
Undecided
On Tuition
By THOMAS KABAKER
No decision has been made
whether or not to increase tui-
tions according to University offi-
cials yesterday.
University President Harlan H.
Hatcher said student fees are be-
ing kept as modest as possible.
"Adjustment of fees does not give
an answer for the need for stable
support in education," he added.
Vice-President and Dean of
Faculties Marvin L. Niehuss re-
peated his statement made on
Tuesday that no policy regarding
tuitions can be made before the
legislature makes known its ap-
propriation for the University for
the coming academic year.
Stresses Quality
Regent Eugene B. Power said
he felt the Regents would not
raise tuitions If it were at all pos-
sible to avoid it. He also stressed
that the "integrity, standard and
duality of instruction" of the
University must be preserved.
He also noted that due to tem-
porary stringent financial condi-
tions in the state, it may become
necessary to increase tuition to
prevent faculty raiding.
"I feel we should maintain the
22 per cent ratio of student fees
to the total budget," he added.
If the legislature should ap-
propriate the $38 million the
University is seeking for the aca-
demic year 1960-61, there is the
possibility of either admitting
more students or increasing tui-
tions in order to raise the 22 per
cent quota set for the student
contribution.
Increased Applications
University officials have an-
nounced an increase in applica-
tions for admission of 27 per cent
over this time last year.
Regent Power said he felt that
part of any increase should be
put into scholarships for students
who would need financial assist-
ance due to increased tuition.
He said that the University has
$2 million out in student loans.
Regent Power noted the diffi-
culty of seeking alumni support.
for scholarship funds by pointing
out that alumni of state colleges
and universities are not accus-
tomed to the idea of supporting
their schools after graduation. He
added that he felt former stu-
dents should support the Univer-
sity in this area.
Khrushchev
Gets Welcome,
On Asian Tour
KABUL, Afghanistan a)--Soviet
Premier Nikita Khrushchev re-
ceived a friendly welcome yester-
day to Afghanistan, the last stop
on his tour of South Asia.
Khrushchev plans to remain
four days in this neutralist nation
on the Soviet Union's southern
border. He first visited here in
1955 with Nikolai Bulganin, then
premier. They gave Afghanistan
a credit equal to 100 million dol-
lars, Soviet aid now totals twice
that, with military assistance ex-
tra.
Announcement of more aid is
expected by some quarters here.
The Premier is expected to discuss
economic help with King Moham-
med Zahir Shah and Premier Mo-

hammed Daud.
The king greeted Khrushchev at
the airport this morning along
with a crowd of about 500.
The king and the Soviet leader
rode into this mountain-ringed
capital in an open car. Khrush-
chev smiled and waved at throngs
of turbaned Afghans gathered
along the 30-mile route.
In the city the government ar-
ranged a welcome. Local observers

AWAIT ANNOUNCEMENT-Gov. G. Mennen Williams told re-

Rumors Say Governor May Try
For Vice-Presidential Nomination
By The Associated Press
LANSING - Gov. G. Mennen Williams said yesterday h
will reveal his political plans tonight on a 15-minute paid
telecast at 6 p.m.
Detroit newspapers say that the 49-year-old Democratic
governor will announce he will not seek re-election, after be-
coming the country's first six-consecutive-term governor. Al-
though Williams refused yes-s

To Discuss

Ll Y it 11SAI VA rJ+as.

He said he reached his decision
a week ago after innumerable dis-
cussions with county chairmen,
Democratic legislators, party lead-
ers, business associates and close
friends.
Times Decision
His decision is timed to put him
into the national political arena
as a possible Democratic vice-
presidential candidate, or at least
a prominent contender for a Cab-
inet post should the Democrats
win in November.
Williams's announcement will,
at the same time, start an intra-
party fight among would-be suc-
cessors.r
Secretary of State James M.
Hare is ready to announce his
candidacy and already has his
nominating petitions prepared.
Pressured To Enter
Lt. Gov. John B. Swainson is
being pressured to enter the race
and is almost ready to do so.
Williams was at lunch when
word hit the Capitol of a Detroit
newspaper story flatly saying he
had decided against seeking a
seventh term. Besieged by news-
men, the Governor distributed
this statement:
"I have made a decision. In or-
der to acquaint all of my friends
and as many as possible of the
people of Michigan with my de-
cision, I will make my announce-,
ment. on radio and TV Thursday
night."
'Nothing To Say'
"Until that time, I will have
nothing further to say on the
subject of my future plans."
He chatted with reporters aft-
erward without supplying addi-
tional information - other than
that he had made up his mind
about a week ago.
At no time did he give any hint
of distress about the widely cir-
culating report that he was ready
to call it quits as governor and
seek to carve a niche for him-
self on the national p o l i t i c a l
scene

Bowl Pact
By TOM WITECKI
Approval of a new Rose Bowl
pact will be the main item on the
agenda when Big Ten officials
open their three day post-winter
meetings at Columbus today.
Those schools favoring the post-
season contest are hoping that
several new factors will increase
the yes vote by one, thus breaking
the 5-5 deadlock established at
last year's spring meeting.
The main point Rose Bowl pro-
ponents have to offer is a recent
formal invitation to participate
in the contest. It was offered by
the newly formed Athletic Asso-
ciation of Western Universities,
which has taken the place of the
dissension-torn Pacific Coast Con-
ference.
Offer Unclear
At the meeting last May, it
wasn't clear who the Big Ten
would be competing against if
they approved the pact. The
AAWU, which has gained prestige
with the hiring of Torn Hamilton
as Commissioner, would fill that
void.
However, these and other argu-
ments are expected to fall upon
deaf ears. Since all the officials
have apparently received instruc-
tions on how to vote from their
respective schools, the deadlock
will probably prevail.
Expected to favor the bill as
they did last spring are: Mic;i-
gan, Michigan State, Indiana,
Iowa and Purdue. Listed as. op.
ponents once again are: North-
western, Ohio State, Minnesota,
Wisconsin and Illinois.
Schools May Switch
Rumors have been hot and
heavy, on how Illinois or Iowa
might switch its vote. However
from all outward appearances, the
deadlock will remain.
If it does, anti-bowl forces will
probably try to remove a clause-
noticed for the first time last
spring - that permits individual
teams to plav in the contest if they

'ARBOR':
New Literary Magazine on Sale Today

By STEPHANIE ROUMELL
A new literary magazine, con-
ceived by several University stu-
dents over coffee cups several
months ago, will go on sale today
here and in major cities througout
the nation.
Titled "Arbor" and defined as "a
quarterly of contemporary litera-
ture," the magazine contains
poetry, fiction, essays, and plays-
no criticism.
"Literary criticism is so defunct
and obscene in this country to-
day," Managing Editor Robert
Davis, '61, commented, "that we
want to stay away from it.
Not 'U' Publication
The magazine is not a Univer-

magazinue received the bulk of its
financing from private patronage.
Six University students and one
alumnus worked out the format,
policy and style for the magazine
in numerous sessions over coffee
cups. The students had about $45
for the project.
"Arbor" does not aim to reflect
any one type of American sensi-
bility, political view, school, atti-
tude of form, Davis said.
'Many Ways of Writing'
"There are many ways of writ-
ing-many kinds of sensibilities
and "Arbor is not trying to estab-
lish one of these as valid, but
rather to reflect areas in which
American authors are working."
"I think vigorous and pertinent
work is being done in the country
