House Considers
Construction Bill
Rabaut Sees 'U' CyclotronaRequest
'As Safe as Can Be' for Passage




'P roblem





The House of Representatives considered the public works bill
yesterday and "the University cyclotron appropriation request looks
as safe as can be," Rep. Louis C. Rabaut (D-Mich.) indicated.
The bill was not voted upon yesterday as had been expected,
Rabaut added, because a motion was made requesting a, roll-call vote
to recommit the bill back to the House appropriations committee to
reconsider the Kensu Dam request.
"It will not go back to committee; the chances are too slim," he
said. Rabaut expects that the bill will be voted upon and passed by
noon today. The bill will be sent
to the Senate appropriations sub-
committee immediately.
"Chances are very good that the
cyclotron proposal will be passed
by the Senate this term, if it al-
ready has been passed by the
House," Sen. Dennis Chavez (D-
N.M.) said.
If Congress approves the cyclo-
tron proposal, the University will
begin construction of a $1 million
building to house the new medium
energy-cyclotron along with the
cyclotron that is now in use.
The Regents approved the ask-
ing of bids at their monthly meet-
ing Friday. The bids will be con-
sidered at the July meeting.
Three years ago plans had been
made to move the present cyclo-

Air Force
United States launched an experi-
mental Midas "spy-eye" satellite
into orbit yesterday, opening a new
chapter in the race for space.
The 2.5 ton satellite will test the
feasibility of using orbiting space
stations to provide almost instant
warning of a ballistic missile at-.
The satellite, first of its kind In
the world, was boosted aloft from
this missile test center at 12:37
p.m., (EST) by a powerful 88-foot
Atlas-Agena rocket.

Two hours later, shortly after
United Nations reconvened to re-
sume the U-2 spy debate, the Air
Force announced the mammoth

The data from the satellite radio

in a near - circular orbit that
ranged from an apogee of 316
miles and perigee of 300 miles. It
circles the earth every 94.34 min-

The first test satellite was not
aimed at a course which would
take it over Russia. Its path covers
all territory 28 degrees north and
south of the equator.
Midas' practice mission is to test
its equipment with giant sodium

Force Base, Calif., and on rocket
launchings at Cape Canaveral and
Vandenberg, AFB, Calif.
The first flare will be fired on the
ground within a few days.

to make its mark in the United
Nations, where Russia seeks con-
demnation of the United States
as an aggressor for spying on So-
viet territory with the U-2 plane
downed on May Day. America de-
fends such flights as necessary to
detect Soviet military buildup be-
hind the Iron Curtain.

On the Run
His typical 10-hour day had
him running, from class to the

Student Publications Bldg. and
around campus to visit student
leaders, administrators and fac-

self his time was spent answer-
ing letters, solving , the small
crises which arose every half-
hour or so, answering a myriad
of questions, and attempting to
formulate policy amid the chaos
around him.
Tom held the unusual view
(for a Daily editor) that it was
the editor's job to run the news-

spent doing just that. Inside

To Buy Book
Part of the amount will be used
for books and cataloguing.
The University has been spend-

To Request
Liquor Vote
Twenty-four Ann Arbor tavern
owners will begin a door-to-door
canvass of the city June 1 seeking
a vote on repeal of the prohibition
against sale of liquor by the glass.
These members of the Ann Ar-
bor Licensees' Association need
5,762 signatures on petitions to
put the issue on the November
(The figure 5,762 represents 35
per cent of the number of electors
who cast votes for all secretary of
state nominees in the last Novem-
ber election-a figure determined
by state, law.)
The 24 licensees will concentrate
on one city precinct, "getting their
'baptismal fire' there," and then
become captains in the city-wide
drive, William Lolgs, spokesman
for the association, said.
The association has received
many letters so far which indicate
a favorable reaction to the pro-
posal, he added.

Human Relations Board Outlines Plan.



The work of the student Human
Relations Board for the past year
and plans for the future were out-
lined at the Board's banquet last
The Board, which works with
students, student groups, business-
men, the Ann Arbor Human Rela-
tions Commission and the Ann
Arbor Council of Churches, to re-
move discrimination in many
Notes Progress
Ellen Lewis, '60, past chairman
of the Board, noted the progress
made in the last few years in-
cluding integration of the resi-
dence halls, off-campus housing,
and the Student Government
Council motion to end discrimina-
tion in recognized campus organi-
"We have a greater responsi-

bility now than ever before," Miss
Lewis explained, "because the
variety and number of students
interested in the area of civil
rights have increased greatly. The
Human Relations Board has the
job to be a leader in demonstrat-
ing to others ways to implement
"This year the Board has be-
come a central body to which
problems are brought by individu-
als and groups asking for advice
and aid," Miss Lewis added.
Explains Functions
In explaining the Board's func-
tions, Miss Lewis also noted that
"although the University may at
times not move as quickly as the
Board would like, they are willing
to be pushed, and this is our job."
Chairman James Seder, '61, said
the Board plans to continue much
of its present work next year in

such areas as off-campus housing,
studying ways to better integrate
international students in to cam-
pus life, working with the Ann
Arbor Human Relations Commis-
sion and continuing the Board's
test case program.
Seder noted that the entire area
of human relations has been
changing. He explained that while
in former years integration in
housing and other steps to elimi-
nate discriminations were unex-
plored areas, now routine methods
for dealing with these problems
have been developed.
"The situations we must deal
with in the future are less appar-
ent on the surface," Seder said.
One important function of the
Board therefore will be an educa-
tional one to inform students and
the public as a whole of latent

Say Beeine
Due for U.S
The "law of evolutionary po-:-
tential" calls for under-developed
countries to surpass the United
States and other Western cuf~
tures, two University professors
Their recently - published book
"Evolution and Culture" explains
this "new law." The book is editedr
and Written by Prof. Elman Serv-
ice and Marshall Sahlins of the
anthropology department with .
Prof. David -Kaplan of the Uni-.
versity of Oklahoma and Univer-
sity teaching fellow Thomas Hard..
Forms Adapt
Cultures and, forms adapt to
their environs, 'both organic and
super-organic, and thus form new
characteristics which maybe
viewed as progress,' they say. On
the other hand, be becoming well
adapted, they lose their potential
for change.
Nationsevolve in the same
manner. Therefore, the United
States has 'already become stab-
ilized by its adaptation and other,
less-developed countries have a
potential for surpassing it.
The country with the best pos-
sibility for doing this, the book
says, is not Soviet Russia (which
had a "premature revolution"),
but Red China.
Strict Organization
This country has virtually noth-
ing but strict organization in gov-
ernment and undeveloped human
and natural resources. It is like a
blank sheet of paper which can
borrow the best of existing cul-
tures and write it down.
Greece and Rome have, illus-
trated this law of evolutionary
potential in the past as both rose
to cultural dominance and then
were conquered and surpassed by
less developed socities which had.
greater potential.
Why has the world developed
through chaotic revolution in the
recent century? "The Western
nations have failed completely to
comprehend the' nature of the
revolution and spread of indust-
rial civilization."
No Annihilation
The United States will not be
annihilated or overrun by this rise,
of the lesser nations of today, the
authors predict. The, possibilities
of a planned total war are slim
f or neither side would have any-
thing to gain.
Therefore, we must adjust our-
selves to helping these less fortu-
nate countries 'as much ,and as
rapidly as possible, rather than
continue to impede the industri-
alization of the rest of the world."
The United States should be-
come aristrocratic, wise, "the
teachers and models of ethics, sci-
entific reasoning and dignified
manners," the book says.

Lewis, Hunter Trace Careers in Show Business

"The effectiveness of films as contrasted to live theatre differs in
certain areas," Kim Hunter decided.
She was drawing on her experience in "Streetcar Named Desire,"
the Tennessee Williams' drama which she played on Broadway and
in Hollywood.
Panoramic scenes, such as fights, were more effective, on stage,
she said. The film was also a little inadequate in the scene in which
Blanche appears under the bare hanging light bulb, because it was
unable to capture the "rawness" of the scene.
Communication Effective
But communication of emotion through facial expression, for
example, was much more effective in close camera scenes, she added.

"I attended the University because it was far from my home in
New York," Robert Q. Lewis said.
A more important reason, he added, was the University's excellent
radio department, under the direction of Waldo Abbott.
Lewis got much of his experience broadcasting special University
programs over regular Ann Arbor and Detroit stations because "when
I was here there was no WUOM or University radio station."
Reminisces About U'
Lewis reminisced about his University acquaintances when he
was a student in the speech department about 19 years ago.
He mentioned Richard McKelvey, now in the English depart-
ment, who used to ran the Children's Theatre. He also remembered
Prof. William Halstead who is still in the speech denartment. and
