Ike Uses T-H Law,

Checks Dock Strike
President Hints Similar Move
In National Steel Shutdown
PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (R) - President Dwight D. Eisenhower
paved the way yesterday for an 80-day cooling-off halt of the dock
strike by invoking the Taft-Hartley Law.
He said the Atlantic and Gulf coast shutdown threatens national
health and safety.
The President deferred similar action in the 84-day-old nation-
wide steel strike. But he hinted he soon may use the Taft-Hartley
back-to-work court injunction provisions in that shutdown, too. James
C. Hagtrty, White House press secretary, noted the new collapse of
labor-management negotiations in

Chicago Sox
+Win -Shutout,
Stay in Play
LOS ANGELES (IP) - The Chi-
cago White Sox battled back into
contention yesterday by beating
the Los" Angeles Dodgers 1-0 in
the fifth game of the World
,Series.
The victory cut the Dodgers'
lead to 3-2 ,in the best-of-seven
series and sent the clubs back to
Chicago for the sixth game Thurs-
day.
Today is an open day for travel-
ing. The seventh game, if neces-
sary, also will be played in Chi-
sago'::
Backt-to-back singles by Nellie
Fox and Jim Landis, which sent
Fox to third, and a double play
grounder by Sherm Lollar provid-
ed the lone run of the tense thrill-
er in the fourth inning.
But it was the cliff-hanging acts
of Bob Shaw, the sterling relief
hurling of Dick Donovan, and a
sensational running catch by Jim
Rivera that furnished the excite-
ment.
Shaw, and starter and loser
Sandy Koufax of the Dodgers
hooked up in a pitching duel until
the young Dodger went out for a
pinch-hitter in the seventh, and
Shaw was replaced in the eighth.
In the eighth, Donovan, loser
of the third game, came in with
the bases loaded and one out. He
got Carl Furillo on a pop to third
and Don Zimmer on a fly to left.
"He then retired the Dodgers in or-
der in the ninth.
Soviet Urges
pace Action
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (P)-
The Soviet Union announced yes-
terday it will propose that the
United Nations sponsor an inter-
national conference of scientists to
swap experiences in exploring out-
espace.
V silye V. Kuznetsov, Soviet
deputy foreign mninister, made the
surprise announcement in a speech
to the 82-nation general assembly.
The speech was generally mild
iri tone. It consisted mainly of an
appeal for urgent action on Soviet
Premier Nikita Khrushchev's pro-
posal made here 19 days ago for
complete world disarmament in
afour years.'
But Kuznetsov served notice
that the Soviet Union would main-
tain its boycott of the present
United Nations committee on
peaceful uses of outer space.
He said the composition of the
committee did not ensure equal
cooperation of all countries. -
The 'Soviet Union, Czechoslo-
vakia and Poland refused to take
part in the committee's work on
the grounds that it did not include
a sufficient representation of Com-
munist and neutral countries.
L.S. Rockets
Fired Today
CAPE CANAVERAL (P-While
a Russian rocket streaked toward
a rendezvous with the moon, the
United States fired two of its big
missiles - an Atlas and a Thor -
on full-range flights yesterday.
The Atlas successfully carried a
fi *-r +f-Hfal-+ ncIa fl la'+n nn

the steel strike and told a news
conference at Eisenhower's vaca-
tion headquarters:
"The President has asked me to
say that this situation is not col-
lective oargaining, which is the in-
srtument open to a free people in
major economic disputes.
"This seems to be getting down
more and more to a' trial of
strength between two groups with
the American public the greatest
loser.
Public the Loser
"And I might add that the Pres-
ident has no, intention of seeing
the -American public be the great-
est loser."
Eisenhower's use of the Taft-
Hartley Law in the dock strike
came with the shutdown only six'
days old. The steel strike, on the
other hand, now is nearing the
fourth-month mark.
The President said the dock
strike also impedes the flow of
necessary perishable products, in-
cluding food, to heavily populated
Atlantic and Gulf Coast ports.
Names Board
As the first step under the Taft-
Hartley national emergency provi-
sions, Eisenhower named a three-
man fact-finding bord and in-
structed the members to report to
him by Saturday. The board makes
no recommendations.
Both sides in the strike were told
to appear tomorrow in Washington
before the board.
On the basis of the board's re-
port, the President then can direct
the Justice Department to petition.
in a federal district court for an
injunction ordering about 85,000
striking longshoremen back to
their jobs.
Injunction Expected
Eisenhower also could find the
Board's report does not justify the
court order procedure.
But in this case, the President
already is familiar with the issues
and serious economic impact of
the strike, and an injunction peti-
tion in a few days - probably by
Friday-is regarded as a foregone
conclusion.
This is the third time Eisenhow-
er has invoked the Taft-Hartley
Law in a dock dispute. He did so
in 1953 when a strike was threat-
ened, and again in 1956 when the
longshoremen had been out for
several days.
To the fact-finding board the
President named as chairman Guy
Farmer of Washington, former
head of the National Labor Rela-
tions Board.
When any court injunction has
run its 80-day course, there is
nothing to keep the longshoremen
from striking again.

Steel Strike
Negotiation
No Success
PITTSBURGH (') - A hastily
called summit meeting of top steel
executives and union leaders last
night failed to produce any pro
gress toward settlement of the 84-
day-old steel strike.
The usual session followed an-
other plea from President Dwight
D. Eisenhower for no letup in
efforts to end the strike of 500,000
United Steel Workers.
Positions Unchanged
No further negotiations are
scheduled
Unlessa break comes soon, the
President seems sure to invoke
the Taft-Hartley Act to get mills
back in operation for an 80-day
period.
After a 90-minute conference
between six industry leaders and
four union officials, each side re-
ported the other's 'position un-
changed and inflexible.
It was only the second meeting
of the industry's top chieftains
and union leaders since the strike
started July 15.
Second Meeting
The other session, last Wednes-
day in Washington, followed sep-
arate meetings with President
Eisenhower.
That first conference led to re-
newed bargaining here last Thurs-
day, which developed an industry
money offer-flatly rejected by the
union.
David J. McDonald, USW
president, told newsmen after to-
night's meeting that "we were
striving to convince them of the
justice of the desires of their em-
ployes." He said the industry re-
mained adamant.
Roger M. Blough, U. S. Steel
Corp. board chairman, said the
union was sticking to a demand
for wage and fringe benefit in-
creases which the industry esti-
mates would cost 60 cents an hour
over a three-year period.
Steel Group
To Visit Ike
LOS ANGELES M) - A group
of striking steel workers plans to
drive to President Dwight D. Eis-
enhower's Palm Springs vacation
reetreat today to protest what
they call "threatened use of the
slave-labor Taft-Hartley injunc-
tion."
President Manuel Sierras of
United Steelworkers union Local
2058 said he will lead a motorcade
of members and 'their families.-
Sierras wired Eisenhower yes-
terday saying he would 'arrive at
11:30 a.m. He asked an audience
"to present the feelings of Steel-
workers and' their families."
There have been reports the
President will invoke the Taft-
Hartley Act, which would send the
steelworkers back to their jobs for
an 80-day cooling off period.
Sierras said he wants to tell the
President that use of the act
would be government strike-break-
ing.

'U' Plans Dedication
Of Telescope Today

FIRST AT 'U'
Russian
Student

By JEAN SPENCER
The world's most precise steer-
able radio telescope went into
operation yesterday on University
property.j
It is the same type as England's
Jodrell Bank telescope. currently*
being 'used to track the Soviet
moon rocket by its radio signals.
The new telescope, which will be,
dedicated today, is located at
Peach Mountain, 16 miles north-
west of 'Ann Arbor. Featured
speaker will be Rear Admiral Raw-
son Bennett, chief of the Office
of Naval Research (ONR).
Work was begun under contract
with the ONR in 1955, two years
before Sputnik, and many of the
telescope's most important uses,
were not anticipated at that time.
To Track
One such use will be to track'
celestial objects across the sky for
12 hours at a time within an area
of one part in 40,000 so as to re-
ceive radio waves from a tiny por-
tion of the sky without interfer-
ence from strong sources nearby.
Fourth in size in the world, the
new radio telescope ranks first in
resolving power, or ability to "see"
fine detail. This is of tremendous'
value in detailed studies of radio
emissions from space and in chart-
ing the location of such emissions.
It can also penetrate cosmic dust
clouds to see overall the spiral
form of our galaxy, the Milky Way
system, observations which can-
not be made optically.
Availability of the telescope will
enable a study of the regions where
stars are born and die.
Picks Up Waves
It can pick up radio waves from
space that are half a billion years
old, that have been traveling1
through space at the speed of lighta
for 500 billion years.
Directing the radio astronomy
project is Prof. Fred T. Haddock
of astronomy and of electrical en-'
gineering. Also under his direction
is the work of a much smaller1
radio telescope at Peach Mountain,'
which has been used in7studying
the sun since August, 1957.
Officials say the 85-foot, 10-story
high antenna, shaped like a huge
saucer, is the most sensitive instru-
ment of its kind.
The telescope's dish, which is
12.7 feet deep and has a focal
length of 36 feet, is mounted on a1
two - axis equatorial, galvanized1
structural steel "tripod tower" of
bolted construction.
Weigh 200 Tons
It will be operated jointly by the
University's astronomy and en-
gineering departments.1
Radio astronomy is the newest
branch of the ancient science of,
astronomy. It began in 1932 when
it was observed that radio waves'
could be received from the MilkyI
Way.

SGC:
to Debate
New Rules
At Meeting
Student Government Council
will start debate on the new Regu-
lations Booklet at 7:30 tonight.
The Booklet, which was given
to SGC for comments and possible
revisions, was written during the
summer. It contains the rules that
will govern the activities of all
student organizations on campus.
The Booklet also serves to com-
plement the new SGC Plan. Many
sections in the rules booklet help
to fill in the outline that is given
in the plan.
As was explained in last week's
meeting, the rules were revised to
bring them up to date and involve
few policy changes.
In conduct and eligibility, the
Council can only make suggestions
to the proper authorities because
these areas are out of their juris-
diction. However in other areas
defined by the plan they may
make changes.
There also will be a preliminary
report on the upcoming SGC elec-
tions. To be considered are the
revised election rules which have
been made up by the elections
committee. As Roger Seasonwein,
'61, chairman of the elections com-
mittee said, this campaign should
not be of gimmicks but of knowl-
edge.

A rrives..
The University's first exchange
student from the Soviet Union
arrived yesterday.
Pavel (Paul) I. Chalenko, who.
has studied mathematics for five
years at the University of Kiev,
will study "iterative methods of
solving integral equations with the
use of computers" for a year at
the University.
He came to this country through
the cultural agreement between
Russia and the United States for
the exchange of pre-doctoral grad-
uate students in science, the social
sciences and the humanities.
Arrived at Willow Run
Arriving at Willow Run Airport,
Chalenko was met by James A.
Davis, director of the Internation-
al Center, and Prof. Horace W.
Dewey of the slavic languages and
literatures department, who served
as an interpreter.
He was then escorted to Ander-
son House in East Quadrangle,
where he will live during his year
at the University.
In the afternoon Russell Hanson
of the International Center took
him for an interview with Dean
Robert Ford of the Graduate
School where he was informed of
the registration procedures neces-
sary since he is an unclassified.
student. Robert Magidoff, Grad.,
and Prof. Deming Brown of the
slavic languages and literatures
department were interpreters dur-
ing the interview.
Requests Visit
Later in the afternoon he re-
quested a visit with Prof. Paul
Dwyer of the mathematics depart-
ment, whose name became famil-
iar to Chalenko while studying at
the University of Kiev.
Although his English is a bit
hesitant; Chalenko and Prof.
Dwyer had an animated discus-
sion in English on mathematics.,
He next conferred with Prof.
Robert C. F. Bartels of the com-
puting center, where most of his
work will probably be concen-
trated.
Asks No Interviews
Today he is scheduled to com-
plete his registration including a
physical examination and a test
of his proficiency in English. Until
he can become adjusted to the
University and increase his skill
in English, Chalenko has requested
no interviews or photographs.
At the present time, 22 Ameri-
can students are studying in Rus-
sia under the exchange program
sponsored by the Inter-University
Committee, and 17 Russian stu-
dents have come to the United
States.

Funds;

'

Pierpont pointed out last night.
"This month's installment hasn't
arrived but we expect to receive'a
regular payment in time to meet
October expenses," he added.
Enough cash is on hand to meet
present needs, until the state al-
locates the funds. The money. is
expected, he said, "in the normal
course of events" within two weeks.
Move Not Unknown
The move to withhold payments
was not entirely unknown to Pier-
pont. State officials had recently
discussed the problem of Michi-
gan's finances, mentioning the
possibility of temporarily with-'
holding the University's October
installment.
Conferences on this problem be-
tween Pierpont and state repre-
sentatives were held prior to Saur-
day's football game and continued
by phone this week.
May Find Funds
State Treasurer Sanford '
Brown pointed out that chance of
routing money to the three uni-
versities later this month are "very
good if we have it." The Board will
meet again in two weeks, but
Brown made no promises about
mailing checks at that time.
Funds might be found at that
time to route some money to the
three schools, Brown went on to
say.
Additional sections of the cash
parcel will go to meet withholding
tax and social security obligations
and help to build up a reserve to
meet the state's 13 million dollar
obligation for refunding sales tax
collections to local governments.
World News
Roundup
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - A space law
specialist said yesterday any pic-
tures Lunik III gets of the far side
of the moon would help the Soviet
Union lay claim to the moon.
Andrw G. Haley, General Coun-
sel for the International Astro-.
nautical Federation, said if Russia
gets the pictures, it will have
achieved two of thie three steps re-
quired for a legal claim.
The first step was taken, he said,
when the Russians claimed to have
implanted 'their' pennant on the
moon. This, Haley said, fulfilled
the requirement for placing. a
symbol on the property desired.
Haley, described the second re-
quirement as to discover, explore
or map the property, which he said
the pictures would fulfill.
The third step, he said, is to
place a man on the moon or to
survey it from a manned lunar
satellite.

Soviets Say
Rocket Goes
Behind Moon,.
MOSCOW (A) - The cosmic
rocket Lunik III, designed to sur-
vey the perpetually hidden side of
the moon, has passed behind the
moon strictly on course and oper-
ating normally, the Russians an-
nounced last night.
Tass said the 614-pound flying
observatory, packed with auto-
matic recording and transmitting
apparatus, came within . 4,75
miles of the moon at its nearest
approach. The time was 5:16 p.m,
(9:16 a.m. EST).
About three hours later, the S6-
viet news agency added, it was
9,370 miles away "near the plane
of the lunar equator."
In Strict Orbit
"The rocket is moving strictly
along the present orbit" Tass
said. This elliptical orbit is plot-
ted to head it back to the vcinity
of the earth, from which the Rus-
sians fired it Sunday.
The position at 12 noon EST
was plotted at 230,925 miles above
the South Atlantic at a point 17
degrees 30 minutes south latitude
and 22 degrees 48 minutes west
longitude.
The scientific equipment was
reported functioning as expected,
with pressures and temperatures,
within the vehicle conforming to
present figures.
Temperature Steady'
"The results of the preliminary
processing of telemetric data .. .
show that the temperature on
board the automatic interplane-
tary station is maintained within
a range of 25 to 30 degrees and
the pressure is about 1,000 milli-
meters (39.37 inches) of the mer-
cury column, which corresponds
to the required values," Tas said.
"The scientific equipment, solar
and chemical batteries, are func-
tioning ;perfectly."
The next transmissions to earth'
were set Tr between 9 and 10 sa.m
EST today.'
British Parties
Claim Fraud
As Vote Nears
LONDON () -- The Conserva-
tive and Labor parties accused
each other yesterday of trickery
and falsification as Britain's most
exciting and confusing election
campaign since World War II
neared an end.
Rival headquarters waited ner-
vously for the voter's decision
Thursday in the Parliamentary
election.
So many people kept their views
secret from poll takers and party
canvassers that forecasters were
baffled. Polls indicated the out-
come was a toss-up.
There was a last rush of bets
that the Conservatives would win
a third term and odds against a

Pierpont Says 'U Received Funds
In September, Can Meet Cash Needs
By CHARLES KOZOLL
Daily Personnel Director
The state bypassed the University yesterday, and parcelled out
$12,100,000 in treasury general funds to other state agencies.
No funds were set for "meeting the installment payment due the
University on October 1.
A total of $6.5 million is owed to the University, Michigan State
and Wayne State Universities to support operating expenses of the
three institutions.
Received Payments
"The University has received all of the regular allotments to
date--for July, August and September," Vice-President in Charge of
Business and Finance Wilbur K."

UGLI Entrance Still Blocked by Bicycles

Fifteen bicycles and two motor
scooters were impounded by the
University yesterday according to
Vice-President for Student Affairs,
James A. Lewis-.
The vehicles were picked up on,
two raids-one at the Undergradu-
ate Library and the other at the
Frieze Building. In both cases, the
cycles were parked under the'
canopies of the buildings, LewisI
said.
"We are going to continue pick-
ing up bikes until students stop'
parking them illegally," Lewis
continued. He noted that the
motor scooters in particular were;
in violation, as there is a state'
law prohibiting the operation of
motorized vehicles on public side-,
walks.
Lewis said that in the future'
students running scooters andj
motor bikes on the campus mayj
receive heavy fines in addition to
