*Destructive Waters Kill Hundreds
Throughout Pacific Coastal Areas
By The Associated Press
Tidal waves, built up by Chilean earthquakes, smashed across
the Pacific yesterday at four continents and the Hawaiian Islands,
causing heavy and widespread death and destruction.
Chile, itself, took the brunt of the sea's force. Unofficially, 130
persons were reported swept to their death when a 24-foot wave
surged over La Arena, a small south Chilean village.

To Review
preme Court agreed yesterday to
review a decision which held that
the Du Pont Company could con-
tinue to own its three-billion-dol-
lar share of General Motors Corp.
The decision, which was ap-
pealed by the government, was
handed down by United States
District Judge Walter J. La Buy
in Chicago. He held that Du Pont
could retain its 63 million shares
in General Motors, but would have
to pass voting rights on to Di
Pont stockholders.
Du Pont holdings amount to
about 23 per cent of GM's out-
standing stock.
The federal government, through
the justice department antitrust
division, has been trying for 11
years to compel Du Pont to divest
itself of GM holdings.
Justices Tom C. Clark and John
M. Harlan disqualified themselves
from the case.
Other Action
In other major action today, the
court upheld, on a 5-4 vote, a secret
contempt of court procedure in
which a New Yorker received a
one-year jail sentence.
Justice Felix Frankfurter, who
spoke for the majority, said no ob-
jection.was made by Morry Levine
or his attorney to the public being
excluded from the court room of
Federal District Judge Richard H.
Levine was punished for refus-
ing to answer grand jury questions
in an investigation dealing with
motor carrier sections of the Inter-
state Commerce Act.
The dissenters called the ruling
"a radical departure from the
principles which have prevailed,
and should continue to prevail."
Trial Technique
Two of the dissenters called
secrecy "a government trial tech-
nique that liberty-loving people
have with great reason feared and
hated in all ages."
The prosecution of Levine, de-
scribed as an executive of a New
York dress manufacturing firm,
arose from his use of the fifth
amendment. Claiming its prtec-
tion against self - incrirination,
Levine refused to answer six ques-
tions. A government lawyer re-
jected this claim, asserting that
the motor carrier act safeguards a
witness from prosecution based on
his testimony before a grand jury.
When Levine persisted in his re-
fusal, Judge Levet ordered him to

States Accuses



Says Agent
SOught Data
Kirilyuk Dismissed
From UN Position
United States' Henry Cabot Lodge
gave the United Nations Security
Council some new information
yesterday on Vadim A. Kirilyuk,
an accused Soviet spy whose case
Vice-President Richard M. Nixon
disclosed last week.
Lodge said the man was caught
seeking data on cryptographic
machines that have to do with
secret codes.
Nixon, speaking at a Buffalo
news conference last Wednesday,
had said only that Kirilyuk was
trying to get highly classified in-
formation from an American in
Springfield, Mass., when the FBI
found him out.
Kirilyuk Dismissed
He said Kirilyuk then was dis-
missed from his Secretariat job at
the United Nations, where he was
a trusteeship division researcher.
Lodge named Kirilyuk with 10
other Russians on what he called
an illustrative list of Soviet spies
exposed in the United States since
Stalin died seven years ago.
He said Kirilyuk was caught in
the act last September when So-
viet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev

tions General Assembly on dis-

Lodge said the United States
understood "that at least 360 Rus-
sian espionage agents have been
convicted in different countries of
the free world."
Besides Kirilyuk he listed the

Discusses Spy
Lodge also referred to the So-
viet Spy Col. Rudolph Ivanovich
Abel - convicted "right here in
New York - and others in the
United States and abroad.
He said a Soviet vessel in recent
weeks committed "an aggressive
act" by deliberately interfering
with vessels of the United States
Navy" off Long Island.
Lodge asked that the proceed-
ings be broadcast in Russia say-
ing, "We believe in free speech,
and we hope the Soviet Union will
broadcast, and the Soviet press will
print, the full proceedings so the
Soviet public will be informed."

accused the USSR of maintaining a vast spy ring in the free world.
NAACP Passes Five Resolutions


The 25th State Convention of
the National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People
passed five resolutions concerning
non-discrimination in higher edu-
cation and commending the Uni-
versity for its effort to eliminate
discrimination on campus.
The convention, held last week-
end in Flint, congratulated the
Student Government Council for
the ruling passed recently to end
discrimination in membership of
recognized campus organizations
and praised the administration,
faculty and student body for their
part in efforts to make the Uni-
versity campus totally non-dis-
Give Citation
The students and townspeople
who participated in the picketing
of discriminatory stores were given
a citation of merit.
The group commended Vice-
president for Student Affairs
James A. Lewis for his part in de-
signing and implementing the by-
law passed by the Relents in No-
vember, 1959 which states, "The
University shall not discriminate
against any person because of
race, color, religion, creed, national
origin or ancestry.
"Further it shall work for the
elimination of discrimination in
private organizations recognized
by the University and from non-
University sources where students
and employees of the University
are involved."
Lauds By-Law
The convention lauded the by-
law as "one of the best and broad-
est statements of policy ever
adopted by a public educational
institution in the United States.
The University delegates to the
conference were Sharon Williams,
'63, President of the University
NAACP chapter; Bereton Bissell,
'61, Vice-president; Walter Fag-
gett, Grad., Board member and
Constance Thompson, '63, Assist-
ant Secretary.

commended for removing resi-
dence hall restrictions, a move
which had been influenced by a
resolution made by the NAACP in
1958, Bissell said.
Reaffirms Stand
The conference went on record
as "reaffirming the stand against
discrimination in off campus hous-
ing facilities and also against dis-
crimination in roommate assign-
ment in resident halls."
James Seder, chairman of the
Human Relations Board, com-
mented that two areas where the
University has been taking recent
action are in student groups and
off campus housing. He said "The
committee on discrimination in off
campus housing hopes to come up
with its plan to alleviate problems
in this area before the end of the
school year."
Seder also stated that compared
with the standards set up by the
NAACP the University should be
very proud of its record, and com-
mended the group's recognition of
the work done by Vice-president
The convention "demands that
any schools which may still retain
quotas or other forms of discrimi-
nation in admissions remove them

"Discriminatory" clauses refer to
those based on race and religion
rather than those along economic
strata or for foreign students.
The University chapter of the
NAACP will take action next year
in directions outlined in the con-
vention resolutions. These areas
will include off-campus housing,
participation in movements such
as the Southern students, and co-
ordination with student organiza-
tions at the University and on
other campuses.

American Embassy in Moscow,
Robert Gray, President Dwight D.,
Eisenhower's cabinet secretary re-
ported last night.
"The incredulously rude Soviet
Premier Nikita Khrushchev is the
leader of a political philosophy
so devious that even the sancity
of the American Embassy in Mos-
cow has not escaped its espion-
age," he declared in remarks pre-
pared for a Republican fund rais-
ing dinner.
Gray did not elaborate on the
espionage reference.

Double Standard
"If it ever should be accepted
that the Soviet Union can main-

have thousands of spies every-
where . . . then the free world
would surely be in peculiar dan-

He spoke for only 15 minutes in
comparison to an hiur-long speech
by Gromyko. The galleries in the
council chamber were jammed
with both diplomats and ordinary
Gromyko denounced President
Dwight D. Eisenhower and accused
the United States of perfidy com-

request that the United States put
an end to such flights.
Denies Aggressive Acts
But Lodge denied that the United
States had committed any aggres-
sive acts "against the Soviet
Union or any other country, either
through its air force or through
any other agency of the United
States Government."
Lodge denied the Soviet charges
as "fallacious" and said the United

on the story. Other Washington officials, who asked not to be quoted,

Academy Award winner Kim Hunter and Charles Hohman co-star
in William Inge's "The Dark at the Top of the Stairs" which will
open at 8:30 p.m. today in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, the third
in the Ann Arbor Drama Season productions.
The Broadway success, which ran for two season in New York
and an additional two years on tour, is considered one of Inge's best
plays. According to theatre critics, it reflects what John Gassner
described as Inge's "sensitivity to the vibrancies of little lives in the
commonplace cgrners of the world."
It is concerned with six days in the life of a harness salesman's
family in a small Oklahoma town, during the oil boom of the 1920's,
when new wealth brought a sudden change in personal values.
