Backs Stand
On Picketing
' Roger Seasonwein, '61, defended
his compromise motion on SGC
picketing support in an impromptu'
Hyde Park debate from the Diag
benches yesterday afternoon.
A vociferous crowd joined Sea-
sonwein's official opponent, Wil-
bert Gurley, '60, in questioning
the liberality of Seasonwein's
stand, which asked that chain
store nationals be requested to
band together and take a stand
against discrimination in the
southern branches.
According to the present mo-
tion, if the stores do not take
such a stand within two weeks,
SGC will support chain store
picketing. "Failing to do this these
stores can no longer be con-
sidered as 'victims' of 'Southern
kustom' but, rather, as molders
of it. Then, any and all of their
outlets should be picketed, Sea-
sonwein said.
Gurley and compatriots pointed
out that the NAACP had already
ascertained that the national offi-
ces of the chain stores could and
should do something under pres-
sure from Northern branches.
Fast approaching exams would
curtain picketing activities and the
two-week delay will greatly hin-
der the effectiveness of the eco-
nomic boycott, motion opponents
pointed out. Seasonwein answered
by reiterating his protection of
the innocent until proven guilty
Al Haber, '60, then stressed that
all but one national office had not
answered previous letters from the
Council and that store had taken
refuge in the excuse that South-
ern branches were "guests in the
community and thus should abide
by the customs."

Aide Tells
Red Plan
For Cuba
CHICAGO (A'-- Cuba's former
military attache to Mexico has ac-
cused Premier Fidel Castro's gov-
ernment of conspiring with inter-
national Communism to overthrow
Latin American governments, a
Chicago newspaper said last night.
The charge came in a copy-
righted story from Capt. Manuel
Villafana, who defected early this
week and flew into exile in Miami.
Quoted Accusations
The dispatch from Miami, Fla.,
quoted these accusations by Villa-
1) Money from Cuba's dollar ex-
change is being paid through
Cuban embassies in Latin America
to finance Communist activities
designed to topple all constitu-
tional governments and bring them
under Russian influence.
2) Russians and Czechs have
been provided false passports by
the Cuban embassy in Mexico,
identifying them as Cubans and
enabling them to travel unhin-
dered through Latin America.
Held Secret Talks
3) Secret conferences have been
held between Cuban officials and
functionaries of the Russian em-
bassy in Mexico.
4) Newly created consular at-
tache posts have been filled with
Cuban intelligence agents who
have more power than Cuban am-
bassadors and act as paymasters
for Communist activities.
5) Panama is high on the list
of targets for subversion, with
operations directed through the
Cuban embassy.
Gave Men, Money
8) Maj. Ernesto Guevara, Argen-
tine born president of the Banco
Nacional of Cuba, sent men, mon-
ey and letters of introduction to
Communists in Guatemala through
diplomatic channels to provoke
disorders and break down the gov-
ernment of President Miguel Ydi-
goras Fuentes.
Villafana is quoted as saying: "I
have irrefutable proof of the col-
laboration of Castro and his men
with Communism, such as the
movement of Russian and Czecho-
slovac citizens through the em-
bassy of Cuba in Mexico where
they were provided with false pass-
ports in order to travel to Cuba
and other Latin American coun-
tries in their militant activities."
Villafana, former military and
air attache to Mexico, was brand-
ed a traitor by the Castro govern-
ment after his defection and sub-
sequent denouncement of Cuban
political affairs.
(Though Castro himself is not
generally associated with the com-
munists, his brother, Raul, now
chief of the armed forces, is
usually linked with leftists, even
though he denies being a commu-
nist himself.)

Over Money
Democrats Stand
Firm; Turn Down
GOP Appropriations
LANSING .W)-Michigan legis-
lators, hurrying to wind up their
1960 session, struggled foragree-
ment last night on spending for
state colleges and universities and
pay raises for themselves.
Squabbles over these and other
major appropriation bills forced
them into a special night session.
Lawmakers were scheduled to
go home yesterday and return May
13 for a brief mopping-up opera-
tion and final adjournment.
WSU Center of Hassle
Hassling over the high education
budget centered over a million-
dollar bonus appropriation the
House earmarked for Wayne State
University. Economy-minded sen-
ators knocked it out, setting the
stage for inter-chamber dispute.
House Democrats, most of them
from the Detroit area, turned
down an informal offer from Sen-
ate Republican leaders to give
Wayne $400,000. They set $500,000
as the minimum.
Democrats Firm
Democrats also stood firm for
most of the $129,000 added by the
House to appropriations for Mich-
igan Tech, $95,000 for Northern
Michigan College and $200,000 for
adult education programs.
Senate-House conferees agreed
on a $1,000 pay raise for the 144
legislators and a $250 boost in the
$1,000 yearly expense allowance.
Some House Democrats, how-
ever, said they would fight ac-
ceptance of the compromise offer,
midway between the $2,500 pro-
posed by the House and the $24
recommended by the Senate.
Lawmakers now earn $4,000 a
To Settle Other Bills
Also to be settled is a 19-million-
dollar bill for construction at state
Sen.Frank D. Beadle (R-St.
Clair) said committee compro-
misers had agreed to wipe out a
$175,000 allocation for a new wom-
en's prison camp near Brighton,
cut proposed appropriations for
sanitary facilities in state parks
from $400,000 to $300,000 and re-
duce by half a $30,000 allocation
for sanitary facilities at Coldwater
State Home and Training School.
A $24,300,000 appropriation for
general government operations al-
so waited final settlement.
Agreement on reflectorized li-
cense tags and drunkometer tests
and other non-spending bills may
be put off until final adjournment
next month, said Rep. Allison
Green (R-Kingston), House GOP
floor leader.
