City Police Free
Student Pickets
Expect More Discussion of Case
Before Announcement of Decision
City police tentatively released 14 students and one University
employee yesterday after the city attorney's office found their distri-
bution of anti-discrimination ieaflets constituted "no littering within
the purview of the ordnance."
Before any final action is taken, further review is expected by
police and city attorneys.
The decision was reached in a one and one-half hour conference
yesterday between assistant city attorney S. J. Elden and attorneys

Meyer Calls
Our age is the "most revolu-
tionary of all ages," Prof. Alfred
G. Meyer of the political science
department at Michigan State
University said in a lecture spon-
sored by the Democratic Socialist
Club last night.
In his speech, "The Russian
Revolution and the Revolution of
Our Times," Prof. Meyer ex-
pressed his views on the relation-
ships between the present day
industrial revolution in underde-
veloped nations and their "pioneer
model," the Russian Revolution
of 1917.
Opposing a popular conception
"that this is a world where the
democratic principle is quite well-
established and a evil, Communist
conspiracy is throwing monkey
wrenches into the scheme," Meyer
listed three definite reasons for
associating the second industrial
revolution with the Communist
Gives Reasons
First, the Soviet system "repre-
sents a successful alternative to
the free enterprise system." Aside
from success in the promotion of
economic growth, the Soviet
Union has become sucesesful as a
welfare state and as a power in
power in foreign technological
nomic aid.
"Second, the Russian Revolu-
tion can be considered a pioneer
of colonial revolution," Meyer
said. "Because there are many
features which characterize both
revolutions, the Russian Revolu-
tion has become a model to strug-
gling, backward nations."
The third reason for associating
the two revolutions lies in the
development of Lenin's theory
about revolution in our time.
Lenin offered a "systematic an-
alysis of backwardness and a sys-
tematic prescription for correcting
Tells Results
"The social and political conse-
quences of the present revolution
are great," Meyer continued.
Among the most important inno-
vations wrought by revolution are
"the formation of a completely
new image of warfare and the
twin development of automation
and energy revolution."
Meyer stressed the possibility
that society may be on the
"threshold of a truly humane
period of history" as another re-
sult of the industrial revolution.
"This," he added, "presupposes
that we don't blow ourselves up in
the meantime."
Nehru Says
India Periled
By Red China
NEW DELHI (AP)-Red China's
Chou En-Lai, looking glum and
stolid, arrived here yesterday for
talks on the bitter boundary dis-
pute with India. He was promptly
told by Prime Minister Nehru that
India's relations with Communist
China "have been imperiled for
the present and future."
This declaration, voiced shortly
after the Red Chinese Premier
stepped from an Indian Air Force
plane, set the tone for one of the
toughest speeches Nehru has ever
made to a visiting dignitary.
The usually affable Nehru wore
a tight smile as he told Chou:

Asked To Appear
The 15 picketers had been re-
quested to appear at City Hall
yesterday morning after having
been apprehended Saturday while
demonstrating before the Cousins
Shop and local branches of the
S. S. Kresge Co. and the F. W.
Woolworth Co., whose Southern
branches allegedly practice segre-
Utley said he assured Elden
that police officers had seen no
pickets dropping leaflets on the
sidewalk (in violation of a city
ordinance) and if leaflets were
dropped, they were done so by
pedestrians receiving them.
The action means that demon-
strations will resume against the
stores Saturday, barring the possi-
bility that the decision to release
them may be reversed, John
Leggett, Grad., spokesman for the
pickets, said.
Release Statement
The statement released by at-
torneys Elden, Norris and Utley
with the consultation of Prof.
Wesley E. Maurer, chairman of
the journalism department, repre-
senting the local chapter of the
American Civil Liberties Union
"In the light of the court deci-
sions on the subject, if there has
been no littering within the pur-
view of the ordinance, there has
been no violation. Hence there will
be no prosecution."
Explaining his position on the
matter, Norris said he felt the
pickets had violated no city ord-
nance, but even if they had, they
would have been supported by
guarantees in the First Amend-
ment and Michigan law.
'Exercising Rights'
"These students are exercising
their constitutional rights of free-
dom of speech and press to oppose
racial discrimination and segre-
gation in American life. They are
thus defending the Bill of Rights
for all," he said.
The 15 picketers are Dale Ar-
oner, '60, Daniel Breskin, '62, Har-
riet Collins, Grad., John Erfurt,
who is not a student at the Uni-
versity, David Golden, '63, Stephen

Peace Hopes
For Korea
Department said yesterday it
"fully concurs" with a statement
put out in Seoul by United States
Ambassador Walter P. McCon-
aughy deploring violence and
urging the settlement of "justi-
fiable grievances."
Press officer Lincoln White was
asked at his noon news confer-
ence about the disturbances in
Korea and McConaughy's virtu-
ally unprecedented comment on
the host country's domestic af-
The department, White said,
has no intention of listing the
grievances the Ambassadormen-
tioned in his statement, but he
did say they include "acts of
violence and irregularities which
marked the recent elections in
White declined to discuss the
question whether it wasan un-
usual step for McConaughy to
events. But he said, "unique rela-
tions" between the two countries,
with thousands of Americans in
the United Nations forces in
Korea, explain why the diplo-
mat found it necessary to make
his statement.
The official adoption of that
statement came a few hours after
Secretary of State Christian A.
Herterhad invited Korean Am-
bassador You Chan Yang to call
on him, obviously for a discussion
of events in his homeland.
You Chan Yang said in an!
interview he is sure Communist
agents are inciting demonstrators
in Korea.
"They use the same tactics in
Korea as in other parts of the
world," the ambassador said.
"The agents are exciting young
students to destroy everything
that is anti-Communist."
In advance of his meeting with
Herter, Yang said he is confident
order will be restored soon.
The internal troubles of South
Korea are causing no danger to
the forces guarding the border
with Communist North Korea,
military men here believe.
Two divisions of United States
army troops are deployed on the
border, along with the ground
forces of the Republic of (South)
Korea (ROK).
The United Nations agreement
under which the United States
and South Korean troops operate,
assigns full control of troops of
both countries in the border area
to the U.N. commander, Gen. Car-
ter Magruder.

U'Develops Radar System

Board Head
Tells Reason
For Action
(EDITOR'S NOTE: The following
is a statement from Prof. Olin L.
Browder. chairman of the Board in
Control of Student Publications.
The imminent disappearance of
Gargoyle from the campus scene
is attributable to lack of sufficient
interest in keeping it going.
I do not refer to lack of readers
but to the lack of personnel to
make it a vital and going concern.
The senior staffs of The Daily and
Ensian consider it their respogsi-
bility, not only to publish cur-
rently, but to recruit and train
underclassmen so as to provide a
reliable succession. Without this
ingredient no continuing enter-
prise can be successful. For some
time now, this element has. been
lacking in Gargoyle, which has re-
sulted in a tentative, hand-to-
mouth sort of operation. This
places the Board in the difficult
position at appointment time of
having to consider petitions with-
out any, reasonable criteria for
The same problent was presented
this year. The deadline for peti-
tioning passed without a single
petition having been filed. This is
a startling fact in a University
with over twenty thousand stu-
dents, and proves the point pretty
well, I think, about lack of in-
terest. It is true that well after
the deadline three petitions were
filed. But two of these three per-
sons would not have met the exist-
ing eligibility requirements ap-
plicable to Gargoyle, and two of
the three were persons whose qual-
ifications were virtually unknown
to the present staff.
The Board would have con-
sideredit an act of irresponsibility
on its part to have tried to per-
petuate an organization which had
been left hanging by such tenuous
threads of responsibility.

To Our Youth

An advanced radar photography
system for airborne combat sur-
veillance developed by the Uni-
versity's Willow Run Laboratories
in cooperation with the United
States Army Signal Corps was
announced yesterday.
The new system-composed of
an aircraft containing radar equip-
ment and a van on the ground
containing the signal processing
equipment-was termed "one of
the most significant breakthroughs
in radar since the early days of
World War II.
The aircraft flies in a straight-
line path while the side-looking
antenna, in a continuous opera-
tion views a wide strip of terrain
along the horizon.
Stored on Film
The radar signals, stored on
film, are later converted into a
detailed, distortion - free, photo-
like strip map.
The processing system is in es-
sence a "synthesizing" of side-
looking antennas many times long-
er than the aircraft itself. It
simultaneously focuses radar for
all ranges, so that the far edge
of the strip being viewed is seen
with the same clarity and defini-
tion as the near edge.
This system "provides a picture
with detail that has heretofore not
been achieved by radar and to
ranges which a few short years
ago were deemed impossible," Brig.
Gen. William M. Thames, com-
mander of the Signal Corps' Com-
bat Surveillance Agency, said in
Washington yesterday.
Details Classified
Although exact ranges and de-
tails remain classified, they are
great enough to allow a plane fly-
ing over friendly areas to look deep
into enemy territory. It is known
that the system shows objects
several hundreds of miles away as

Garg Closes Shop-Perhaps Forever
By decision of the Board in Control of Student Publications,
today's Gargoyle will be the last for at least a full year.
In an official statement, Prof. Olin L. Browder of the Law School, r. x
chairman of the Board in Control, cited lack of sufficient interest
as the reason for the decision. The board received no petitions for
Gargoyle editorships prior to the deadline, and the present Gargoyle
has no staff trained to take over.
Training Difficult
Richard Pollinger, '60, retiring Gargoyle editor, etplained that -
training a staff presents problems since the magazine is not pub-
lashed regularly and potential members need a knack for humor
writing which cannot be taught.
Banned Twice
The magazine has been banned from campus twice.
Director of University Relations Lyle Nelson, discussing the
magazine, said he felt that Gargoyle has more problems among its
own staff than it has with the University. He said, however, that the
