Special to The Daily
DALLAS - Michigan was off to a good start in the NCAA swim
championships here last night and knocked one of its top rivals, In-
diana, down a couple of pegs in the process.
Southern California, the other leading contender to end Michi-
gan's three-year championship reign, shared the opening-day point
lead at ten each with the Wolverines and Yale. Indiana had only three

The Assembly Association yes-
terday distributed a recommenda-
tion that Little House of Mary
Markley be retained as upperclass
housing for the 1960-1961 year.
The recommendation also asked
that Betsy Barbour or Helen New-
berry, depending on which has the
highest turnover, replace Little as
upperclass housing in 1961-1962.
If there is further demand, the
other house will be considered as
an additional upperclass house for
Mrs. Elsie Fuller, assistant dean
of women, director of women's
housing, said these recommenda-
tions have been considered in the
housing committee and that they
are accepted for the next school
year. She commented that this is
the type of long range planning
that the University wants carried
out. Mrs. Fuller said that the
housing committee couldn't con-
sider more as it got bogged down.
She commented that all future
plans are dependent on the Uni-
versity's policy toward incoming
freshmen. If the number increases,
Mrs. Fuller said, the program may
be altered to accommodate them.
Activities and special privileges
formed the basis of most of the
rationale behind the decision by
Assembly. It was pointed out that
the existing special privileges ex-
tended to the residents of Little
can not be given to the other up-
perclass women in Mary Markley.
Also other privileges can't be given
to the women because of the exist-

The report said that activities
more suitable to upperclass women
could be carried out better in Bar-
bour or Newberry, as free-stand-
ing units. Their proximity to cam-
pus would also serve as an added
privilege for upperclassmen.
Mrs. Fuller said that Little will
not be the only upperclass housing
for next semester. The establish-

Four University students were
sentenced to ten days in jail yes-
terday and charged $275 each in
fines and costs for attempting to
procure an act of gross indecency
They were also placed on five
The students were among eight
students and one professor who
pleaded guilty Mar. 12, following
a ruling by Circuit Judge James
R. Breakey that the charge was
both constitutional and sufficient-
ly explicit to warrant triel.
Henry T. Conlin, attorney for
the nine, had previously argued
that the "gross indecency" charge
violated federal and state consti-
tutions in that the crime was not
"sufficiently explicit to inform
those who are subject to it what
conduct on their part will render
them liable to its penalties."
Conlin had further complained
that police officers used"entrap-
ment" in arrest procedures.
He was referring to the meth-
ods of a group of special officers
who patrolled rest rooms in city
and University buildings and ar-
rested individuals after receiving
Judge Breakey's ruling was that
the law was sufficiently explicit
and that it had been used enough
by the courts "to become well
identified in the scope of its use."
He also said that there was no
evidence to show that entrapment
had been used; that the individu-
als had made the first move.
The students were among 28.
arrested in a two-month crack-
Conlin asked that the names of
those sentenced not be released by
thepress. "What we are trying to
do is fit these individuals back in-'
to society," he said. "Publicizing'
their names will have the oppo-
site effect-that of driving them
out of society that much more."
Earlier in the afternoon, Attor-
ney Ralph C. Keyes revealed that
he intends to apply to the state
supreme court for permission to
appeal the Circuit Court's deci-
sion in the case of James P. Wiles,
who committed suicide in a St.
Louis hotel room recently.
Wiles- maintained until his
death that he was improperly
charged, that the act under which
eh was tried was unconstitution-
al, and that errors in rulings were

PARIS (A) - Premier Nikita S.
Khrushchev and President Charles
de Gaulle swapped conflicting
opinions on Germany in a private
Khrushchev emerged as mili-
tant as ever in opposition to what
he calls German revenge seekers.
The Soviet leader redoubled his
public attacks on Germany while
wooing France, now closely linked
with the Bonn Republic, to align
herself with the Soviet Union.
Meet in Rain
De Gaulle and Khrushchev met
at the Elysee Palace for two hours
and 10 minutes yesterday morning
with only their two interpreters
present. A spring rain pattered
"Each laid out his point of view
on European problems," a French
spokesman said. "The greatest
emphasis was on Germany, for
both considered it the key prob-
lem in Europe "
Plan More Talk
Any discussion of a basis of
agreement was left to later ses-
sions. De Gaulle and Khrushchev
have scheduled about 10 hours
more for private talks before the
Soviet Premier winds up his pre-
summit visit April 3.
De Gaulle said only Wednesday
that the Germans had given up
the ambition to conquer Europe.
Bluntly taking issue, Khrushchev
told a reception this afternoon at
the Hotel de Ville, the Paris city
"We cannot take seriously these
efforts to show that it is not the
same militarism which existed be-
fore and that it is not to be
Khrushchev added that he is
ready to speak out whether he is
in France, Britain or the United
States to say without quibbling
that "under present conditions it
is a dangerous attitude to encour-
age militarism in West Germany."
Then he added:
"If Germany is given the op-
portunity to make and use nu-
clear arms and rockets the conse-
quences would be very grave."
But where he warned France
against playing along with Ger-
many on one hand, he appealed
on the other for a restoration of
the old entente between France
"If in the past a Republican
France was able to accept an alli-
ance with Czarist Russia," he
said, "there are still more reasons
now why friendly relations should
develop between France and the
